By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comWest of Pinemount Road and behind Grace Life Church, a massive retention pond grows daily. Dump truck after dump truck carries 17 cubic yards of dirt away from the site as the state Department of Transportation creates a place for stormwater as part of the project to widen U.S. 90 to four lanes from Lake City Avenue to just west of Brown Road. The $10.2 million project is scheduled to be completed by late summer of 2014. Zach Carnahan, project administrator and an engineer for Reynolds, Smith and Hills Construction Services, said more than 6,000 dump truck loads have been removed — about 103,000 cubic yards of dirt — since con-struction began in January. There are still about 122,000 cubic yards to go, Carnahan said. Gina Busscher, DOT public information officer, said some of the dirt is used as fill on the county’s Bascom Norris Drive connector road project. The widening of U.S. 90 calls for the addition of 4-foot bike lanes and 5-foot sidewalks on both sides of the highway. Tom Crossman, DOT project manager, said the majority of the work completed since January was building the retention pond and underground drainage sys-tem for water that will be dis-placed by the new lanes. Carnahan said the project is on schedule. Pinemount Road has seen some congestion as a result of the construction. “The businesses on Pinemount Road we have been working with to the best of our ability to make People.................. 2AOpinion ................ 4AObituaries .............. 5AAdvice & Comics......... 3BPuzzles ................. 4B TODAY IN PEOPLE Restaurant preview.

Hector Picard plans to ride a bicycle more than 3,200 miles to raise money for a year-old Spokane boy born without hands or fore-arms. Riding a bicycle across America is an amazing feat in itself, but consider Picard lost half his left arm and his entire right arm in an electri-cal accident more than 20 year ago. “(His) parents are having a difficult time with prosthet-ics, and at the same time, they are concerned about his future,” Picard said of the child he’s riding for. “I want to help them with both. I want to show them that any-thing is possible.” Picard, who lives in Miami, stopped at the Lake City Fire Department on Wednesday morning. He wants to raise $32,000 for the family and he plans to raise the money one donation at a time. Picard said he left Miami on June 8 and has ridden about 100 miles a day since. The entire 3,200 miles will take him 36 days. Sometimes on the road, other cyclists join Picard for a time, but Wednesday, he was riding alone. “During the week, it’s tougher to get other cyclists out here,” he said. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comOpening testimony in the Richard Franklin capital murder trial began mid-morning Wednesday with prosecutors and defense attorneys offering differing accounts of an attack that claimed the life of Columbia County corrections officer Sgt. Ruben Thomas III. In opening statements for the prosecution, Third Circuit State Attorney Jeff Siegmeister painted a picture of an inmate who appeared to be on a rampage against corrections officers at the prison. Siegmeister said Franklin lured Thomas into his cell, attacked him, then chased him down and stabbed him to death only a few feet from the safety of a corrections officer control booth. Siegmeister said Thomas was lured into the cell because a piece of cardboard had been placed over the air condi-tioning vent and Franklin told Thomas water was coming from the vent. “The attack starts there, and Thomas was in for the fight of his life,” he said. Siegmeister said after Thomas was punched in the face by Franklin, he ran from the room, attempted to call for help and tried to close the door to the control booth, but Franklin stabbed Thomas in the top of the head and through the neck. Thomas died in the doorway. The prosecutor said after Thomas was down, Franklin made a throat-slashing gesture to the other inmates before he attacked Corrections Officer William Brewer, who survived, then tied clothes to an entry door so no one would come up from behind him as he continued his standoff with officers. Testimony starts in trial of inmate charged in death of county corrections officer.

Jonathan Craig Ulsh, 31, was arrested after a Gainesville police officer stopped him for driving 47 mph in a 35-mph zone, according to an Eighth Judicial Circuit arrest report. The report states Ulsh performed poorly on field sobriety tests, but after initially refusing a breath test, he changed his mind and gave two sam-ples. The tests registered blood-alcohol levels of 0.127 and a 0.132 percent, the report said. The legal limit for blood-alcohol is 0.08 percent.

AROUND FLORIDA Woman picks up tab for 180 PLANT CITY — A mystery woman who many said resembled the Florida woman who recently won the $590 million Powerball jackpot picked up the tab for 180 diners at a Plant City restaurant on Sunday afternoon. Stephanie Reaves, manager of BuddyFreddy’s restaurant, said a woman bearing a striking resem-blance to Gloria C. MacKenzie — the 84-year-old Zephyrhills woman who took a lump-sum payment of about $370.9 million on June 5 — paid about $2,600 to cover the cost of meal. She even left $50 tips for each of the five servers on duty. “Everybody got up and applauded and started hugging her,” said Reaves told the Tampa Bay Times. Reaves said the woman was accompanied by another woman and a man. When asked, the donor said she was not the Powerball winner. “It sure looked like her,” Reaves added. “She looked like the woman on TV.”Ethics panel names lawmakers TALLAHASSEE — The state’s ethics commission says five current and for-mer Florida legislators did not properly disclose their finances. The Florida Commission on Ethics reported Wednesday it found prob-able cause that the leg-islators did not correctly disclose their income and assets on an annual form. The commission found that Sen. Maria Sachs, D-Delray Beach, did not disclose a condominium she owned and also failed to list the money she earned as a legislator. The commission also found that Reps. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, and Janet Adkins, R-Fernandina Beach, did not correctly fill out their forms. Two former legislators — Sen. Ronda Storms, R-Valrico and Sen. Stephen Wise, R-Jacksonville — also did not properly disclose their finances. The commission says it won’t take any further action because lawmakers amended their forms.1 dead, 1 hurt in home invasion ORLANDO — Deputies say one man died when three gunmen burst into an Orange County home and started shooting. The shooting happened late Tuesday. Orlando television station WFTV reports the victims were playing video games when the home invasion began. Orange County Sheriff’s deputies are searching for the three gunmen. One victim told deputies the shooting happened without warning as the gunman entered the home. He said he ran to another room after being shot twice. He was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center. The other victim was able to escape the home but was found dead on the street.Teen dies after confrontation ORANGE PARK — A 15-year-old boy who was injured in a confrontation with sheriff’s deputies has died. The shooting happened Saturday night after the family of Hadrian Miguel Rabadan called authorities saying he was suicidal. The Clay County Sheriff’s Office was notified of the teen’s death on Tuesday. On Saturday evening, deputies arrived at the Orange Park home where the teen lived with his grandmother. He was spot-ted in a nearby wooded area, where a canine unit confronted him. News reports said the teen and Deputy Jason Graff exchanged gunfire. The teen was taken to a hospital in critical condi-tion. “ Daily Scripture ” The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. — Psalm 19:1-2 Jennifer Lopez extols Latino power WASHINGTON S inger-actress Jennifer Lopez says Latinos in the United States are starting to realize their power in politics and media, and that makes the timing good for her latest undertak-ing: Lobbying for greater diversity in TV programming. The entertainer spoke Wednesday at the Cable Show, a communica-tions convention, ahead of new programming set to launch July 18 on the NUVOtv network. Lopez serves as chief creative officer of the English-language Latino channel. “It’s an extension of who I am as an artist,” she said about her new role in an interview with the Associated Press. “As I grow in this business, I’ve been in the business close to 20 years now, that creative spark that you have doesn’t go away. It keeps growing almost.” Lopez said working behind the scenes is just as rewarding as per-forming — if not more so. “Singing and acting and dancing and performing live, it’s always going to be my passion,” she said. “But at the end of the day when you’re given the opportunities to be more creative, to create things more from the ground up, to really, really do things like NUVO, which is, real-ly for me empowering a community that means so much to me.” She added, “It feels bigger than me. It feels bigger than just a televi-sion show. It’s something that can change the world, the face of televi-sion, the way people feel about them-selves, how they’re inspired, what they aspire to do and to be.” The actress-singer-dancer said these are exciting times across the board for Latinos. “There’s a big revolution going on, it’s like a media and cultural revolu-tion of Latinos here in the United States,” she said. “We’re realizing our power. We’re realizing that we matter here.”Soap opera actress Maxine Stuart dies LOS ANGELES — Longtime soap opera actress Maxine Stuart has died at age 94. She had regular roles on “The Young and the Restless” and “The Edge of Night.” Her daughter, Chris Ann Maxwell, told the Los Angeles Times that her mother died of natural causes on June 6 at her Beverly Hills home. Maxine Stuart began her career in the New York theater. She had small movie roles but was best known for her TV work, which included guest appearances on shows such as “Peyton Place,” ‘’NYPD Blue” and “Judging Amy.” She received a 1989 Emmy nomination for her role as a piano teacher in “The Wonder Years.” Soledad O’Brien joining HBO’s ‘Real Sports’ NEW YORK — Soledad O’Brien is joining fellow “Today” show alum Bryant Gumbel at HBO’s “Real Sports.” HBO said Wednesday that O’Brien will be a reporter on the monthly magazine show, which is anchored by Gumbel. Her first story, due this month, is about war veterans who use martial arts to help cope with post-traumatic stress disorder. “It’s exactly what I’ve been doing for a long time — telling stories about human beings and their strug-gles,” O’Brien said.

This isnt Picards first test of his endurance. On the 20th anniversary of his accident, he rode from Miami to New York City. I have a hard time with a lot of things, but its about overcoming it, he said. Its continuing to look for ward and challenging your self. When I do these rides, Im challenging myself and showing whats possible. When Picard first lost his arms, he had a year-old daughter. He said she gave him a reason to live. In the beginning, it was all about my children, he said. I have to be there for them. Now its about all the people I meet on the way. Along his way to Washington, Picard will fall. His body will begin to break down. And he will run into rude people as he did just a few days into the trip. A motorist flashed obscene hand gestures at him and a group of 40 other cyclists as they ped aled down a street. Im going to run into some idiots along the way but a lot of really nice peo ple (too), and its all worth it, he said. Picard hasnt met the boy hes fundraising for, but he prefers to keep it that way until he reaches the last stop. Its going to be a raw, emotional moment, he said.

Pictured are (from left) Lt. Randy Burnham, Driver/Engineer Bobby Oliver, Firefighter Matt Herndon, Picard, Firefighter Daniel Dohrn, Fire Chief Frank Armijo, Firefighter Levi Register and Driver/Engineer Bob Thon. From staff reports Thieves made off with an estimated $20,000 in jewelry during the over night burglary of a goldbuying store Tuesday, according to a Lake City Police Department news release. The owner of We Buy Gold, 120 NW Burk Ave., called police at 10:15 a.m. Wednesday to report the break-in, which he said occurred sometime after 6 p.m. Tuesday. Owner Bruce Perry said numerous gold rings, gold necklaces and gothic-style silver rings were taken. According to the news release, the only notable item was a 14-karat gold ring inscribed with a pan ther on a cliff. Perrys initial estimate of the loss was $20,000, the release said. Police ask anyone who may have seen suspicious activity in the area that night to call the LCPD TIP line at (386) 719-2068. $20,000 in jewelry reported stolen HIGHWAY: US 90 work Continued From Page 1A sure their accesses are maintained, Carnahan said. Road construction hasnt yet impacted traffic on U.S. 90, though barriers were being set on the west side of the road Wednesday afternoon, Carnahan said. Subsequent to that, the next step is to get crews in there to install drainage structures and pipe prior to building up the road and doing any paving, he said. With any road project, construction cones, signs and workers attract the eyes of motorists, he said. I do believe its natu ral for vehicles to slow down just because they are being cautious, he said. After a while (driv ers) will get used to it and (traffic) seems to alleviate somewhat. Crossman said most local drivers are aware of the construction. CYCLIST: Cross-country trip will be challenging Continued From Page 1A Siegmeister said Franklin then smashed a sprinkler and told the warden, Im going to get me another one before he was sub dued and taken into cus tody. In his opening state ment, assistant public defender Jonathan Austin said Franklin was constant ly targeted by Thomas. Austin said Thomas was constantly riding Franklin and it got steadily worse. He said Thomas would ride Franklin in front of his cell mate, other inmates and other corrections officers. He said Franklin approached Thomas and they had a one-on-one conversation. Austin said Thomas didnt like it and started acting belligerently. Austin claimed they wanted to settle it man-to-man. You know how to get me to your room ... Call me to your room, Austin said Thomas told Franklin. Austin said Franklin called Thomas about a problem in his cell and once there, Franklin punched Thomas in the nose. He said Thomas body alarm and radio fell on the floor and he ran from the cell. Franklin decided not to be in the cell when cor rection officers returned, according to Austin, so he headed for the day room so the other inmates could see whatever happened next. Austin said Franklin pulled a knife so that a team of weapons control officers would respond, not Thomas. Hes carrying the knife so a special team can respond, Austin said. However, Austin said, Franklin saw Thomas at the end of the hall and followed him, stabbing Thomas in the hand as the two strug gled with the control room door and other inmates hooted and yelled. Austin said Thomas personal body alarm never worked, and the other actions Franklin is accused of after the incident with Thomas arent the primary factors in the case. Austin said Franklin panicked and, looking back, hes sure he would handle things dif ferently. This is not premeditat ed, first-degree murder..., Austin said. It was a fight that got out of hand a tragedy. When court resumed after lunch the prosecution offered testimony from three witnesses cor rections officers Terry Lamoreaux and Bradley Meyer and Franklins cell mate, Robert Midnight Acree, who made money making knives for other inmates. The jury of 12, plus four alternates, was seated just after 10 a.m. The jury is composed of seven women and nine men. Jurors will not know until delibera tions begin which of them are alternates. Judge Paul Bryan also denied a motion by Third Circuit Public Defender Blair Payne for a change of venue to a place where there is no publicity or Department of Corrections influence. Bryan said the jury selection process, which took more than four days, was long, but necessary. He said he is convinced the change of venue is not only unnecessary, but also unjustified in this instance.

S ometimes there oughta be a law. And other times there shouldn’t, like when local communities start dictating benefits packages for private enterprise. It might feel good, but it’s an overreach. That’s why Gov. Rick Scott should sign House Bill 655, despite the full-court press for a veto by progres-sive interests across the state. The bill would prohibit individual cities and counties from imposing benefits requirements on businesses. It’s a direct outgrowth of the petition drive in Orange County last year to let voters decide whether busi-nesses with 15 employees or more should be required to provide paid sick leave each year. County commissioners turned back the petitioners, but a panel of judges determined they had violated their own charter, giving them no choice but to put it on the ballot in 2014. That provided a window of opportunity for the Florida Legislature to deliver what Orlando GOP leader Lew Oliver grotesquely described as the “kill shot” — a state law to derail the Orange County measure and make sure it didn’t happen elsewhere in the future. While their tactics were deplorable, the sick-time oppo-nents are, from a policy standpoint, correct. We’re riding a slippery slope when voters in hundreds of cities and 67 counties across Florida get to tell everyone from Walmart to the local diner how many sick days they owe employees. It’s not hard to imagine moving from sick days to retirement benefits, ordering businesses to establish 401(k) plans so employees don’t have to rely solely on Social Security in their retirements. What about mandating three or four weeks of vacation to ensure families can spend enough time togeth-er? Groups like MomsRising.org make compelling arguments for the need for sick days so employees don’t have to choose between coming to work ill or losing a day’s pay. And we agree that compassionate, responsible employers should, ideally, offer employees sick time. And vacation time. And other benefits to give employ-ees a sense of security. But most of these business decisions should be left to businesses, not to voters through popular referen-dum. As a rule we favor local control. And the bill in front of Rick Scott has reasonable provisions that allow local governments to impose wage and benefit rules on com-panies doing business with the government, or compa-nies that receive subsidies. But there are limits to everything, and the idea that cities and counties across Florida should dictate the benefits offered by private enterprise exceeds those limits. HB 655 includes a provision for a task force that would look at benefits and, we hope, give thoughtful consideration to a statewide mandate for sick leave. That would make more sense than a regulatory crazy quilt of mandated benefits that change from city limit to city limit. The governor should sign the bill.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com T he Islamic Republic of Iran will hold its 11th presidential elections Friday. It’s all very excit-ing -just as it was in 1979 when, right after the Iranian Revolution that brought down the Shah, Iranians first cast ballots. I was there -a reporter in Iran, work-ing on a documentary film for Bill Moyers at PBS. Then, as now, the elections were the focus of consid-erable international attention. Then, as now, the elections were a total fiction. Some people understood that; others never seem to get it. For example, 10 years ago, Richard Armitage, then deputy secretary of state under President George W. Bush, called Iran a democracy. In recent months, both Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel have said that Iran has an “elected” government. Hagel even added that it was “legiti-mate.” The Iranian producer with whom I was working was enthusiastic about those first post-revolution elections. He regarded my skepti-cism as unjustified and unfair. Iranians were flocking to the polls. Surely, that represents progress, he said. What struck me was how much the system set up by revolution-ary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini resembled what I had seen as a student and journalist in the Soviet Union. There, too, people could vote. But the government officials they elected held no real power. That was reserved for the Communist Party. In Iran, the Supreme Leader wields supreme power. In 1979, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini was the Supreme Leader; today it is Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. He does not answer to the people. He answers to a higher authority – indeed, the very highest authority. To insure that the Supreme Leader’s will be done, there is the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and the roguish militia known as the Basij. A12-member Guardian Council -appointed, not elected -also reports to the Supreme Leader and together they decide who is and who is not qualified to be a presidential can-didate. Under Iran’s Islamic con-stitution, only men and only Shia Muslims may apply. For the current election, there were 686 registered candidates. Eight were approved. A few days ago, Khamenei made clear to the finalists that they are not to “make concessions to the enemies.” In other words, they are not to suggest that Iran might be better off refraining from develop-ing nuclear weapons, pursuing a policy of peaceful coexistence with America and Israel, and focusing on the repair of an embattled economy. Not one of the candidates can be seriously considered a reformer -unlike in 2009, when Mir-Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi were permitted to run. You’ll recall that when the election results were announced, incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was the winner -by a landslide. Millions of Iranians realized that the elec-tion had been rigged -and that this was not the first time they had been played for fools. They took to the streets shouting “Death to the Dictator!” and asking President President Obama, “Are you with us or against us?” What became known as the Green Movement was quick-ly and brutally crushed. Why do Iran’s rulers even bother with this charade? For one, I think, because most dictators still like the sound of the word “democ-racy.” Think of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Another reason: As exiled dissident Mojtaba Vahedi told The Wall Street Journal’s Sohrab Ahmari, the Supreme Leader likes to have “a fall guy who at the same time has no real power -someone with no serious responsibility but who’s nevertheless accountable for every failure.” Vahedi, now living in the U.S., served as a top aide to Karroubi, who first ran for the presidency in 2005 -and who afterward charged that that election had been a fraud, noting the suspicious fact that in at least three provinces, “the total number of votes cast outstripped the number of residents.” So no matter who is announced the winner this weekend, do not uncork your best bottle of pome-granate juice. The Supreme Leader will still reign supreme. Like his predecessor, he believes Muslims have a religious duty to wage war against infidels, in particular America, the “Great Satan,” and Israel, the closer-to-home “Little Satan.” Iran’s constitution is quite clear: It calls for jihad “against the arrogant in every corner of the globe.” And that would be us. It is this reality -not an Iranian election -that we should be dis-cussing. Only then can we hope to formulate a serious national security strategy for the challenging years that lie ahead. Q Orlando Sentinel Let business alone, sign sick-leave billWhite House pulls plug on picnicP resident Barack Obama basically derailed his “charm offensive” -not that this particular P.R. operation was having its desired effect anyway -by post-poning until fall the annual White House congressional picnic. The event is traditionally held in June. Lawmakers’ children are out of school then, and congressio-nal spouses who live back in their districts can more easily attend. Congress’ work schedule, involving more days in session than usual for lawmakers, is also a factor. It’s an informal event and one that has assumed a certain biparti-san importance since the members of the two parties don’t mix or socialize after work the way they used to. And the harsh campaign taskmasters who have set up the congressional schedule, especially the House’s, have designed it so that even in one of the rare full workweeks, members are out of the capital on Friday morning and not due back until midday Monday. In a terse notice Monday afternoon, the White House Office of Legislative Affairs simply said that the event would not take place this month, but, “We are hopeful that we will be able to reschedule this event for September.” House Speaker John Boehner called the decision “just silly.” One theory ... was that the picnic was canceled to dramatize the folly of the sequester, the auto-matic across-the-board budget cuts Washington is struggling with. But the congressional picnic is hardly a high-dollar event -ham-burgers, hot dogs, soft drinks and beer. Besides, the president could easily pay for it out of his $50,000 nontaxable expense account or his $19,000 official entertainment account, sums constitutionally pro-tected from the sequester. Few Washingtonians are so jaded that they are not thrilled by an invitation to the White House, and that is equally true for members of Congress. Fairly or unfairly, Obama has a reputation for being aloof and not a skilled practitioner of the backslapping bonhomie of the con-gressional cloakroom. Postponing a traditional event popular with Congress on short notice -and with no explanation -is likely one reason why.

Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 2013 5A OBITUARIES From staff reports A Lake City man was crit ically hurt in a crash on SW Allison Terrace Wednesday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Robert Lee Wade III, 23, was traveling north at 12:02 p.m. when for unknown rea sons his 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee traveled onto the west shoulder and struck a tree. Wade was airlifted to Shands at the University of Florida with critical injuries, according to an FHP news release. Alcohol was not a factor, FHP said. The report did not indi cate whether Wade was wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident. Local man critical after crash County School Superintendent Terry Huddleston said Wednesday the alleged DUI was a factor in Ulshs departure as CHS head baseball coach. I dont want to speak for Mr. Widergren (CHS principal), but I believe that was a consideration, Huddleston said. ... But that wasnt the total consideration. Huddleston said there are consequenc es for mistakes, but that with any school district employee, district officials will try to understand the situation. Then the district deals with the situation on an indi vidual basis, he said. And after that, Huddleston said, admin istrators try to offer the employee sup port. Jonathan called me and was incredibly remorseful for his mistake, Huddleston said. ... He was concerned about how his players would interpret the situation. Huddleston said Ulsh, a teacher in the school district, will keep his job, and theres a chance Ulsh could one day return as a member of the baseball coach ing staff. Widergren and Jonathan arrived at a decision that (resigning) might be best for the program at this time, Huddleston said. Ulsh said the arrest was a factor in his decision to resign. I understand I made a mistake, he said Wednesday. ... Im not making excuses. Im going through some family things.

Wilson had never designed a course, and he traveled to Scotland and England before returning to build Merion. Its Scottish-styled bunkers are known as the “white faces of Merion.” Unique to Merion are the red wicker baskets attached to the pins, instead of the tra-ditional flag. The origin of the baskets remains a mystery, although Wilson is said to have thought of the idea during his British trip. Merion has hosted 18 USGA championships, the most of any golf course. This is its first U.S. Open since 1981. Length: 6,996 yardsPar: 36-34—70Cut: Top 60 and ties and anyone within 10 strokes of the lead after 36 holes. Playoff (if necessary): 18 holes on June 17. Field: 156 playersPurse: TBA ($8 million in 2012).Defending champion: Webb Simpson.Last year: Webb Simpson closed with a 2-under 68 at The Olympic Club for a one-shot victory over Graeme McDowell and Michael Thompson to capture his first major. McDowell had a 25-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole that would have forced a playoff. Jim Furyk was tied for the lead with three holes to play until he bogeyed two of the last three holes. Simpson fin-ished at 1-over 281. Last time at Merion: David Graham became the first Australian to win the U.S. Open when he closed with a 67 to make up a three-shot deficit against George Burns. He was the first U.S. Open champion in 11 years with par or better all four rounds. U.S. Open champions at Merion: Olin Dutra (1934), Ben Hogan (1950), Lee Trevino (1971), David Graham (1981). Noteworthy: Only five of the top 20 players in the world ranking at the start of the year have won on the PGA Tour this season. Quoteworthy: “Everything is tested in the U.S. Open.” — Tiger Woods. Key statistic: This is the eighth time in the last nine years of the U.S. Open that at least one hole was longer than 600 yards. The exception was Pebble Beach in 2010. Key coincidence: The winning score for the U.S. Open has gone down each of the four times it has been played at Merion. Tiger tales: This is the first time since 2000 that Tiger Woods has won four times on the PGA Tour before the U.S. Open. He won the U.S. Open that year by 15 shots.

Only for this, it is the umpire that steps on the machine to cock it and then releases a throw to the plate at a bit more than 40 mph. Lake City/Columbia County has two teams in the field — the Columbia All-Stars in the A Division and the Lake City All-Stars in the B Division. Fort White has a team in the Small League Division. The Columbia and Lake City teams played practice tournaments in Madison and Melrose. Columbia was runner-up in both, with 12 teams in the Melrose tournament. Lake City was 3-0 in pool play in Melrose before los-ing in the knockout round to eventual champion Santa Fe. At Madison, Lake City won a game against Levy Park of Tallahassee. “We are just out to improve, and we have,” Lake City coach Chad Witt said. “Most of the kids played in the infield in rec ball and adjusting to the out-field has been a challenge.” Lake City has a couple of all-stars that played last year, while Columbia has five and manager Jason Dumas also is a returnee. “We preach defense, that’s what wins games,” Dumas said. “If they can’t score, they can’t win. The biggest thing (hitting machine pitch) is keep your head on the ball and swing level.” Columbia has eight 8-year-olds and Dumas expects experience to help. “These kids are really competitive and they hate to make a mistake,” Dumas said. “We have a term we use — ‘flush it’ — if they do make a mistake. Don’t let one bad play bring them down.” Today’s opening round games follow by start time with divisions listed.

DEAR ABBY: Thank you for all you do to keep our seniors safe. Saturday, June 15, is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. On that day, communities in the USA and all over the world will sponsor events to highlight the growing tragic issue of elder abuse. Your readers -young and old -should know that the U.S. Administration on Aging estimates that as many as 5 million seniors are abused or neglected each year in the United States. Elder abuse can be physical, emotional, finan-cial and sexual. It also includes people who are neglected. Elders who are abused are twice as likely to be hospitalized, four times as likely to go into nursing homes and three times as likely to die. Elder abuse can be prevented if everyone would learn the warn-ing signs and report it to Adult Protective Services or the police if they suspect it is happen-ing. -MARY TWOMEY, MSW, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA-IRVINE DEAR READERS: I urge you to get more informa-tion on this important sub-ject by visiting www.ncea.aoa.gov. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I was married to a wonderful man, “Ted,” who was 20 years my senior. In social situ-ations his adult children would introduce me as “Dad’s wife” or “Ted’s wife.” Sadly, my husband passed away, and his chil-dren no longer know how to refer to me socially. I was recently asked by Ted’s children how I wished to be introduced, but I’m not sure. I don’t think “stepmother” is appropriate because I’m only four to seven years older than they are. Do you have any ideas as to what might be appropriate? -“MARILYN” IN NEW JERSEY DEAR “MARILYN”: You could be introduced as “Dad’s widow,” “my late father’s wife” or simply by your name. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Some friends are in the process of adopting two children internationally. Early on, they had a garage sale with the proceeds going toward the adoption. I was excited for them and wanted to help. However, this was soon followed by more requests -for yard sale donations, two more garage sales, the “oppor-tunity” to buy expensive coffee online, a fundraising dinner, and then a solicita-tion for me and others to provide a “virtual shower” of plane ticket money. Each time I am notified about another fundraiser, I feel less and less chari-table. I have never been asked for money for the same thing in so many dif-ferent ways in such a short time. While I’m thrilled with their desire to adopt, I am increasingly disgusted and put off by their contin-ued pleas for money. Am I wrong to be so upset about this? -A LITTLE TICKED OFF DEAR TICKED OFF: It appears your “friends” are taking advantage of your generosity. It will continue for only as long as you per-mit it. Because the requests for help are continuous, are you absolutely sure this couple is really in the mid-dle of the adoption process and not using the money for some other purpose? Before donating anything else, you should find out. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’ll have to stay focused on the task or project you want to pur-sue. Not everyone will be in agreement with your choices, but ulte-rior motives are probably behind any discontentment you face. A change of scenery will do you good. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Listen to your heart, your head and the friends you love and trust. Don’t allow emotions to dictate a decision that will influence the way you live or who you live with. An oppor-tunity to collaborate with a worthwhile contributor looks good. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take action; make changes, find solutions and you will become the go-to person for your loved ones. Channel your energy and make the most of whatever situation you face. A proposal may not make everyone happy, but it will be a unique opportu-nity. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take a little “me” time. Focusing on self-improvement or looking your best will encourage you to venture into unique situations that can alter the way you do business and boost your earning poten-tial. Celebrate with some-one you love. Romance is highlighted. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your enthusiasm will encourage others to pitch in and help. A change in location or the way you present and promote your skills will lead to a venture that friends and family won’t feel as tempted to pursue as you do. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Proceed with caution. Don’t take anything at face value. Do your homework and size up your situa-tion based on facts. You may have to disappoint someone in order to avoid a costly situation. Don’t make an impulsive move due to pressure. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Question people until you get the answer required to make a deci-sion. Don’t let a personal situation dictate what you do professionally. Expand your knowledge, interests and show diversity when it comes to your vocational abilities. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Take time out to explore a creative idea you want to pursue. Spending time with someone you find unique or have a romantic interest in will help speed up the process of eliminating and honing what you want to accomplish. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Impulsive spending will cause a dispute between you and someone who has a vested interest in what and how well you do. Don’t neglect to share your plans before moving forward. Clear thinking when it comes to investments is unlikely. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Partnerships should be your prime concern. Whether it is a personal or professional relationship, making sure you have a better under-standing of what you are bringing to the table will be key in building a work-able union. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Deal with facts and be honest about your past, present and your intentions for the future. Getting down to basics and working toward personal improvements will show others you are serious about your goals. Update your image. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Problems at home must not stand between you and your goals. Spending time with people you feel a connection to personally or profession-ally will help you make a decision that can alter your future. Act on principle, practicality and facts. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

This is a routine measure that is common for water utilities using chloramines as its primary disinfec-tant. Water utilities using chlora-mines must periodically change to using chlorine alone, known as free chlorine, to maintain optimal levels of disinfection within the water dis-tribution system. Customers may notice a temporary change in the taste, odor and/or color of the water, which is not harmful.Anyone who uses a kidney dialysis machine at home should contact their equipment supplier so the proper fil-tering equipment may be installed.Tropical fish or aquatic animal own-ers should contact a local tropical fish store for appropriate pretreat-ment of water before adding water to tanks.Again, this is an annual routine pre-cautionary measure to ensure our customers of clean, safe potable wa-ter.
