Though the two knew what to expect, it was hard getting back into the swing of the school year routine. Its a different experience than when she first went, White said. Its much easier. Gracie waited excitedly in the front office, showing off her light-up sneakers and first-day orange dress, complete with a big white bow. She picked the outfit herself, White said. Though Gracie seemed proud of her choice, she said she was most excited about her new teacher, her friends and the play-ground. Its wonderful to see all the children return from last year, to see how much theyve grown over summer, said Westside principal Cherie Hill. I think they are excited, but some of them are nervous too. After a day or two, theyll get back into the groove of things. For seven years, Hill has been the principal at Westside. She has seen the school earn an A grade for each of those years, an accomplishment that thrills her. She said she looks forward to another great year. Its always exciting to have Shands to pay$26Mto settle lawsuitFrom wire services and staff reportsIn a case spurred by a whistleblower, Shands HealthCare will pay $26 million to the fed-eral and state governments to resolve allegations of overbill-ing the Medicaid, Medicare and Tricare programs, the U.S. Department of Justice announced Monday. Six hospitals in the Shands system, including Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center, were alleged to have submitted inpatient claims that should have been billed as outpatient services or procedures, according to a Department of Justice news release. The six hospitals are: Shands at Jacksonville; Shands at Gainesville; Shands Alachua General Hospital; Shands Lake Shore; Shands Starke; and Shands Live Oak. The incorrect billing was alleged to have happened from 2003 to 2008. The Department of Justice is committed to ensuring that Medicare funds are expended appropriately, based on the medical needs of patients rath-er than the desire of health care providers to maximize profits, Assistant Attorney General Stuart F. Delery said in the news release. Hospitals By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA small crowd of residents peppered county officials about a proposed residential fire assessment increase dur-ing the first county-sponsored town hall meeting about the proposed fire assessment hikes for fiscal year 2013-14. County officials are proposing to increase the residential fire assessment rate from $77 to $183.32, based on a fair and reasonable apportion-ment that would require the rates to change even without budget changes. The county conducted its last fire assess-ment in 2005. The increase is necessary to maintain the countys current Insurance Services Office rat-ing and prevent a spike in fire insurance premiums for coun-ty residents, officials said. The first in a series of meetings on the assessment change drew about 30 peo-ple to the Columbia County School Board Administrative Schools open with enthusiasmSCHOOL continued on 6A SHANDS continued on 3A Lake Shore among six hospitals that allegedly overbilled.

Reuben L. Carrigg, 36, of Jacksonville, was northbound on Interstate 75 with Vanessa Ann Raynor, 22, of Orange Park, when their black 2008 Kia SUV began changing lanes and driving on the road shoulder for no reason, deputies report. Deputy Josh Latimer turned on his signal lights and conducted a traffic stop after the couple pulled into the IHOP near I-75 and U.S. 90 at about 9:30, the report said.

AROUND FLORIDA Group makes record sundae PALM BEACH GARDENS A Palm Beach County charity event apparently has set a world record for longest ice cream sundae. The Palm Beach Post reports that more than 1,000 people turned out Sunday to help build the 1,250-foot sundae at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens. The sundae was laid out in connected troughs that snaked through two ballrooms The participants paid $30 per family to partici-pate in building and then eating the sundae. The confectionary delight raised money for the Alliance for Kids, which helps hospitalized chil-dren. The Guinness Book of World Records currently recognizes a 1,101-foot concoction made in June by a group in White Bear, Minn. An indepen-dent observer watched Sundays effort and will attest to Guinness that the record was broken.Inmates riot at juvenile facility MIAMI Male teens at a juvenile detention facility destroyed several buildings and sparked two fires during a riot, injuring seven people, authorities said Sunday. Eighteen of the 20 buildings at Avon Park Youth Academy were destroyed, causing hundreds of thou-sands of dollars in dam-age. Rioters confiscated a guards radio on Saturday night and all of the staff golf carts, and set fire to a building containing the teens records. A trash bin was also set ablaze, according to Polk County Sheriffs officials. The riots started after a group of teens from St. Petersburg were playing a basketball game against a group from Orlando. The winning team had to give the losers three cups of soup, but the losing team refused and a fight broke out. Others not involved in the game joined the melee, sheriffs officials said. Seven teens were transported to Florida Hospital in Sebring with minor injuries, ranging from a broken leg to cuts and a concussion. No staff or law enforcement officials were injured. Sixty-four teens were transferred to a county jail in Frostproof.

Daily Scripture Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. 1 John 5:12 Franklin not attending award luncheonNEW YORK A retha Franklin will not be attending a baseball lun-cheon during which she was to receive a Beacon award for embodying the spirit of the civil rights movement, The Associated Press has learned. Franklin, 71, has already canceled several concerts recently because of undisclosed health reasons. In a statement issued Monday by Major League Baseball, the Grammy-win-ning Queen of Soul referred to ongoing treatment that prevented her from traveling. Franklin lives in the Detroit area; the luncheon is being held in Chicago on Saturday. As recently as last week, Franklin had been expected to attend the lun-cheon. I greatly appreciate being a Beacon Award recipient, Franklin said in her statement. Presently, I am unable to travel as I continue my treatment. I am working toward a full recovery. Franklin and former baseball star Bo Jackson were to be presented Beacon awards, which in previ-ous years have been given to Willie Mays and Harry Belafonte among others. Major League Baseball plans to announce at a later date, but before the ceremony, who will accept the award on Franklins behalf. The Beacon luncheon is one of sev-eral events marking baseballs Civil Rights Game weekend. It is unfortunate that Aretha Franklin will not be able to attend the MLB Beacon Awards Luncheon, but Major League Baseball wishes her the best throughout her treat-ment, said baseball Hall of Famer Frank Robinson, executive vice president of baseball development for Major League Baseball. Franklin has had health issues before. In 2010, she was hospitalized and underwent surgery for undis-closed reasons. Vigils were held for her and the Rev. Jesse Jackson, a family friend, referred to her sur-gery as serious.Actor John Goodman gets honorary degree SPRINGFIELD Actor John Goodman says hes learned to be grateful for his blessings, rather than always striving for more. Goodman was awarded an honorary doctorate degree of humane letters Sunday during at the convo-cation at Missouri State University in Springfield. He graduated from the school with a fine arts degree in 1975. He says he originally went to Missouri State to play football but an injury led him to focus on drama. He says he owes his career to the school because its teachers helped him find and pursue his passion. Goodman, a St. Louis native who has starred in stage, television and film roles, told the students to appre-ciate small blessings, because the most important thing you will do in your life is take your next breath.Chris Brown concerts cancelled in Canada TORONTO The promoter of four Chris Brown concerts in Canada scheduled this summer says the events have been canceled.

By STEVEN RICHMOND firstname.lastname@example.org The city council voted Monday to extend an incentive package toward an unnamed local business looking to expand within Columbia County. Project Breeze is a local business employing Columbia County citizens looking to expand within the county and are seeking cash incentives to aid in their expansions $29.8 million capital investment. Joel Foreman of the Economic Development Board presented infor mation on Project Breeze to city council Monday evening. The proposed agreement follows that the city would submit an ini tial approximately $113,000 up-front payment when construction on the expansion begins in January. The company has a 24-month deadline to complete construction. The additional approximately $263,000 from the city would be sub mitted in equal annual payments over the next five years. We do want to make sure theres a sunset on this thing to make sure it wont be going on for years, Foreman said. As per the agreement, Project Breeze promises it will provide 40 new jobs paying approximately $48,000 per year. Failure to deliver on the jobs would break the incen tive agreement and cause funding to return to the city. Foreman also told council mem bers that he and the Economic Development Board believed the company would begin turning a profit within three years of initial construc tion. Seems like a win-win situation to me, Councilwoman Melinda Moses said. City Manager Wendell Johnson advised council members that the initial construction funding for Project Breeze would come from city reserves. We sometimes tap into reserves for one-time expenses like these, Mayor Stephen Witt said. If theres extra money at the end of the year, well put it into the reserves. The city and countys combined incentive package for Project Breeze stands at approximately $1.1 million. there, Carrigg fled on foot north towards Publix, but was caught by Sgt. Pete Spurlock Jr. in a grassy field, the report said. Deputies report that the vehicle wrecked on a curb and struck a church sign. Carrigg reportedly told deputies he would have gotten away if he hadnt wrecked the vehicle. Raynor was found hiding in a small retention pond near the Shermin Williams store, the report said. Deputies report finding a small amount of mari juana and a pill of Xanax, a prescription drug use treat panic attacks and anxiety disorders. Raynor also confessed she was concealing bags of Molly in difficult-toreach places on her body, the report said. Molly is a slang term for adulterat ed psychoactive stimulant drugs that typically contain MDMA, or Ecstasy, as the primary ingredient. The car was registered to a Jacksonville woman who reported she had lived with Carrigg for three days but woke up one morning to find him missing, along with her TV, cellphone and car. Deputies said the cars passenger-side window was broken out consistent with a stolen vehicle. Carrigg is wanted in Duval County on charges of grand theft and domestic battery, the report said. Carrigg was detained in the Columbia County Detention Facility without bond. He faces charges of elud ing police, resisting an offi cer, reckless driving, giving a false name and driving with a suspended license, jail records show. Raynor was jailed in lieu of $13,000 bond and faces charges of resisting an officer, possession of marijuana, drug equipment possession, destroying evidence and possession of controlled substances, reports said. Complex Auditorium Monday evening. The meeting, which last ed about 75 minutes, start ed out with an audience of 17 people and ended with just over 30. During the meeting, residents often stopped David Kraus, county safety manager, to ask questions about the fire assessment and the proposed increase in residential rates. Many wanted to know whether the rates included firefighting units respond ing to auto accidents, while others asked how would the rate increase benefit the county. Kraus and county fire chief David Boozer said the proposed rates evenly spread the costs of response to vehicle crashes and noted the increase in resi dential rates were based on the residential percentage of calls the fire department has been responding to. Based on Columbia County Fire Department data, residential fire calls increased from 49.3 per cent in 2005 to 71.6 percent in 2011 and 2012. Resident Rudy Fiorillo asked about the proposed closure of Fire Station 40 at its fairground location for a new fire station to be built on Bascom Norris Drive. I live in an area thats covered by that (station). So we have a situation where my assessment is going to be more than doubled if they go through with what theyre saying while my pro tection is being decreased. Its kind of a contradiction, he said. I dont mind the financial aspect of it. I dont mind paying for fire pro tection, and I believe they should have more men..., Im just a little bit disturbed my coverage is going to be decreased. I dont care how many fire stations they put in town, if theyre not closer to my house, Im los ing some protection. Roger Sulrti Gopal, who asked a number of ques tions at the meeting, said he was not in favor or the increased residential rate assessment proposal. My concern is the (resi dential) assessment is too much and it should be controlled, he said, noting he believes the proposed assessment discriminated against people in the resi dential classification. Its proposed at two and a half times the current assess ment, and people dont have their incomes grow ing by two and a half times their current in income. The proposed rate increases will generate approximately $5.7 million, which will be used to build three new fire houses in the county and enhance county fire protection services and equipment.

City OKs Project Breeze funds
A t his Aug. 9 news conference, President Barack Obama spoke with journalists in the White House East Room about Republicans and Obamacare. At least they used to say, Well, were going to replace it with something better, Obama said. Theres not even a pretense now that theyre going to replace it with something better. Unless Republicans want Obama to keep spouting such nonsense, they must craft and at least pass through the GOP House one single bill that would scrap the health-care reform law and put something far better, and Republican, in its place. Republicans are 1,000 percent correct to try to defund, repeal and replace Obamacare. With its employer mandate postponed for a year, most health-insurance exchanges far from ready for their Oct. 1 debut, medical premiums zooming to the moon, and its 10-year price tag soaring from $940 billion at enactment to $1.8 trillion today, Obamacare has become both unworkable and a knee-slapping mockery of its official title: the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. American patients and taxpayers alike should applaud GOP efforts to derail this runaway train and safely run it out of town, before it barrels onto Main Street with its gears stripped, brakes shot and tank cars clogged with toxic cargo. That said, congressional Republicans badly need to plant their rumps into some hard chairs and unify around a solitary GOP alternative to Obamacare. They should endorse its elements, pledge to adopt it if they win the Senate, and constantly sell it as the best means to prevent this loom-ing disaster. Such a measure -call it the Patient Power Act of 2013 -should promote choice and freedom, limit government meddling and pry Uncle Sam from between Americans and their doctors. Specifically, this Patient Power Act should: -Repeal Obamacare.-Create a robust market in which individuals, not bosses or politicians, can choose to own and control portable health plans. -Shift tax-deductibility of health premiums from employers to employees, to help workers pur-chase the coverage that they, not CEOs or senators, prefer. -Let Americans purchase health and pharmaceutical policies across state lines, just as they now may buy life, home and apartment coverage from vendors across the nation. -Free Americans to open voluntary, tax-free Health Savings Accounts from which they can finance over-the-counter drugs, rou-tine medical care, and catastrophic insurance for severe ailments. -Entice doctors to deduct from their taxes the dollar value of their charity care for poor and unin-sured patients. Let a million free clinics bloom. -Reform the medical malpractice system, which propels health costs skyward. -Establish high-risk pools to help insure those with pre-existing conditions. -Limit federal involvement to supplying health-insurance subsi-dies to those remaining Americans who cannot care for themselves nor find relief through civil soci-ety, local and state government, or the initiatives outlined above. Rather than ruin medicine for 316 million people, government should assist the tough cases who cannot secure help elsewhere. ... Washington simply should offer direct cash payments to help the truly needy and infirm buy pri-vate health plans that satisfy their needs.H oping to give the slow-moving econ-omy the equivalent of a high-caffeine energy drink, the Federal Reserve has been aggressively buying up mortgages and bonds in a program it calls quantitative easing. Now speculation that the central bank soon will taper off its $85-billion-a-month purchases is rat-tling the stock market, which has been the most visible beneficiary of the Feds fiscal experiment. The unprecedented attempt to artificially speed up the nations economic metabolism has been no substitute for tax reform, entitlement reform, transportation improvements and other hard choices ducked by Congress and the president.... The reality is that with interest rates near zero, cautious investors have been enticed into risky, high-yield stocks. There has been an illusion of success as share prices rose this year. But there has been no spurt in hiring and no major expansion of productive capacity. Unemployment is down to 7.4 percent, but more than half of the new jobs are part time.... Nevertheless, parts of the economy have become addicted to the Feds stimulus. Taking it away is essential, but it must be withdrawn slowly and predictably. Yields will have to go significantly higher to find buyers for the mortgages and bonds when they are no longer gobbled up by the government through the Fed.... So why not just keep stimulating? Inflation, which critics five years ago warned would punish us all, has not appeared in full force. But it could. President Obama recently said that right now, if you look at the biggest challenges we have, the challenge is not inflation. The challenge is weve still got too many people out of work, too many long-term unemployed, too much slack in the economy. Thats right, as far as it goes. Putting so much emphasis on right now overlooks the reality that the current stimulus is unsustainable. Emergency solutions cannot go on forever without harmful side effects. Easing is a euphemism for an extraordinary policy Congress should find troubling. After five years of buying, the Fed now owns 20 percent of Treasury bonds and notes. It holds 25 percent of the mortgages. The Feds vault is packed full of paper assets whose value is sure to plunge as soon as rates start to rise. The extreme policy has left the country, like a person overdosed on caffeine, restless and irritabl e. Those of us in the real economy students, workers, businesses, investors and retirees hunger for less manipulation and a lot more certainty.M y wife and I took a different route for vacation this summer. We went north. We drove all the way to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and then down to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. We had beautiful weather; folks were friendly and accommodating; the sights were breathtaking. But dont worry: Im not going to write about our vacation. I want to talk about Deliverance. While we were staying in Petoskey, Mich., Roemer McPhee was speaking at the library in nearby Harbor Springs. He is the author of The Boomers Guide to Story: A Search for Insight in Literature and Film. It took him four years to write 500 essays on 300 contemporary stories in films and novels. If you like stories and their underlying messages this book is worth your time. I wondered what he had to say about Deliverance since that was one of the stories he was to discuss in Harbor Springs. So I bought the book and telephoned him. You know the basic plot of Deliverance, a James Dickey novel made into a movie. Its about four prosperous canoeists from the big city, obviously Atlanta, who travel to the North Georgia, obviously, to attack the Cahulawassee River, obviously the Chattooga. And its they who are attacked. Many of us Southerners think the movie, filmed partially in Rabun County, unfairly and wrong-ly stereotypes mountain people. But Roemer McPhee whose uncle, by the way, is the famous writer John McPhee said that Deliverance is not about North Georgia, and its not about mountain men. Its about four men under a terrible attack, he said, and it could have happened anywhere. That story does not depend on the setting, but the setting is etched in everyones mind. It certainly is. In fact, the setting is etched to the core of Barbara Taylor Woodalls mind. Woodall, a Rabun County native and author of Its Not My Mountain Anymore, doesnt see any redeeming quali-ties in the movie. Its not just a movie when a culture is assaulted on the silver screen, she told me. Try that with a bunch of Muslims and see what happens to you. The New Georgia Encyclopedia calls the movie the most degrading depic-tion of southern mountaineers ever put on film. Moviemakers came to North Georgia looking for freaks for the movie, she said, and those images, 41 years later, still stick in the minds of disrespectful tourists who make derogatory remarks and sometimes squeal like pigs to some of the nicest, most hos-pitable people on earth natives of the North Georgia mountains. Roemer McPhee said that Deliverance is about what man does when hes in a crisis. Its very unfortunate, he said, because the stigma is very real and very big, but thats not the essence of the story. ... The set-ting is a lot less important to the story than I think people real-ize. But its extremely important to people who live in that setting. Just ask a native whos heard the squeals.

Tyrone Sands returns from a knee injury that sidelined him in 2012, but after 12 sacks in 2011 as a sophomore, the Tigers know exactly what kind of player theyre getting back. Sands said hes healthy and ready to go for the 2013 season which begins with the kickoff classic against Trinity Christian at 7:30 p.m. on Friday in Lake City. I think Im around 90 percent, Sands said. I feel good and Im ready to come back and show everyone the player I was. Sands was a big part of the Tigers as a sopho-more and led the team in sacks with 11. Just because he missed last year, how-ever, doesnt mean his expectations have been lowered. I want to lead the defense in sacks once again, Sands said. I think that I can have 15 or more this year. Its going to take extra prac-tice and Im going to have to work even after practice at my house on my pass rush. Sands said that its not just his athletic ability that makes him a special player, but also what he has on the inside. My resiliency and toughness just make me want to come back and player harder this year than I ever have before, Sands said. Im not a big guy, but I play big. Sands knows that hes not the only part of the defense that opposing teams have to worry about. Hes got Malechi Jean lin-ing up beside him at defen-sive tackle and a secondary that could be one of the top in the state. (Malechi) can take up two guys, Sands said. You want to play next to a guy like that who will allow me to attack the ball. Playing around those guys light-ens things up for me. With pressure on the inside, Im able to attack up the field hard. Sands also believes that the defense is good enough to propel the Tigers to his ultimate goal, which is to capture a state champion-ship. I think we can take it to state, Sands said. We have to have that teamwork and commitment. If we play with a fire behind us, we cant be stopped. We can be excellent. We just need that fire. Sands believes that the Tigers defense will only continue to get better as the season goes along. Weve been together, so we know what to expect, Sands said. Were already good, but we can step it up even further and continue to get shutouts. The coach-es have coached us tough, but its made us the team we are today. And head coach Brian Allen said Sands is part of the reason that the Tigers are the defense they are today. Hes a kid that broke out during his sophomore CHS continued on 6B BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Tyrone Sands returns to the Tigers after a knee injury sidelined him for the 2012 season. Baker goes wire-to-wire at Fort WhiteBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE With his first snap this season, Andrew Baker will accom-plish a first for Fort White High football and a rare feat at any school. Baker will become a fouryear starter at quarterback for the Indians. An injury to a teammate propelled Baker to the quarterback job as a fresh-man and it has been his ever since. It has gone by fast and some of it has blurred together, Baker said. It is an honor to me, being the field general and leading by example in practice. I try to work hard at every-thing I do and hope it trans-lates over into the game. Experience really helps. Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson protected his freshman with his play calling, but he has turned Baker loose the last two years. I am really pleased with Andrew, Jackson said. He has revised and renewed himself and is seeming to have fun this fall. Baker earned the confidence. His passing yardage increased 352 yards from 2011 to 2012 on the same number of completions. He threw 15 touchdown passes as a junior and 14 as a soph-omore. Bakers career numbers are 264 completions in 494 attempts (53 percent) for 3,725 yards and 35 touch-down passes. He has car-ried the ball 236 times for 699 yards and scored seven touchdowns. Another such year would likely put Baker at the top of the Fort White statistics list for many years. I have thought about my legacy, but it is not at the front of my mind set, Baker said. Baker is one of a couple of Indians who saw action on the field the last time Fort White played Madison County High. This year, the two teams are in the same district. Madison owns the series, but Baker is unde-terred. It doesnt matter who we play, Baker said. We have developed a solid line and we are prepared Indians QB a four-year starter for football team. BAKER continued on 6BJASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFort White Highs Andrew Baker is a four-year starter for the Indians. He will be the first player in Fort White history to complete four years as the teams starting quarterback.

DEAR ABBY: I recently declined a wedding invita-tion because my spouse and I will be out of town on the date of the wedding. A few days after I sent the RSVP, I got an email from the groom saying he had suspicions that I wasnt attending because I was bitter about not being in the wedding party. I was shocked by the email. Not only do I not care about who is in the wedding party, I dont think were such close friends that we should have been invited in the first place. I think its appalling that he would accuse someone who declined an invitation of having ulterior motives for not going. I emailed him back, explaining that we will be out of town and how upset and disappointed I am that he would think something like that. Wasnt what he did a breach of etiquette? -APPALLED IN NEW YORK DEAR APPALLED: Yes, it was. Your inability to attend the wedding appears to have brought to the sur-face the grooms insecurity about his social relation-ships. I dont blame you for being appalled. The mans behavior was inappropriate. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My sister is 63, divorced, educated, intelligent, self-employed and receives monthly support from her ex-husband. The problem is she takes no responsibility for her health. Shes extremely overweight because she overeats and doesnt exer-cise. She complains every day that she feels ter-rible. (I call it self-pitying whining.) Our other siblings think it is too late to confront her about it. I want to address the issue now, before she gains even more, or has a stroke or heart attack and, quite frankly, wont be able to care for herself. I dont want to see the respon-sibility fall on her three kids or us siblings. Its not fair. Shes just too lazy to make necessary changes and constantly whines! Your thoughts? -SIBLING STANDING BY DEAR SIBLING: The problem with confronting someone is that it usually makes the person being confronted defensive. In a case like this I dont recommend it. However, a family INTERVENTION might work. If the fam-ily members were to get together and, as a group, talk to your sister about your concern for her health, it might be the wake-up call she needs. No mention of whining should be made, but suggest that she might have a touch of depression that could be helped if she brings it to the attention of her doctor. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: When my wife and I go to a busy res-taurant or a concert where we can pick up last-minute tickets, I often ask her to hop out of the car to find out if the wait times are reasonable or tickets are available while I wait in the car. I do this so I wont have to find a parking space until were sure we will be staying. My wife says my doing this is tacky. I believe it is efficient. What are your thoughts? Thanks! -JOHN K. IN WINDSOR, CONN. DEAR JOHN K.: Your request makes perfect sense to me. Parking spac-es are sometimes hard to find and valet parking isnt cheap. However, because your wife resents doing this, either she should be the one to drive so you can hop out, or tickets and reservations should be made in advance either online or on the phone. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Rethink your motives before making a profes-sional or educational move. Impulsiveness will cause a poor reaction. Determine how the decisions you make will affect your per-sonal and domestic life. Discuss your plans with those influenced by the choices you make. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Youll get caught in the middle of a situation that can cost you a friend-ship, your reputation or your position if you arent specific and dont stick to the facts when discussing your plans. Hiding infor-mation to avoid opposition will not end well. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont expect some-thing for nothing. You may be offered assistance, but you will have to repay the favor. Change the way you present yourself and you will gain momentum. Love is highlighted. +++++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Talks may be hard to avoid, but in the end can also be costly. Be careful not to be too quick to judge or to offer assistance. Find out whats involved before you take on something you may not be able to finish. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Dont let emotional encounters escalate. Your ability to negotiate is good, and a solution can be found as long as you stay calm and complimentary. Additional responsibilities may not be welcome, but they will be necessary. Love is on the rise. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Consider what you can do to help an untimely situ-ation resolve itself quickly. Acting secretively will help you lay groundwork that might be difficult if you share your plans. Dont go overboard. Practical actions will be sufficient. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Thinking about advancement will not get you there -you must take action. Charm and network your way to the top. Lack of participation will be your downfall. Dont allow personal responsibilities or relationships to stand between you and your goals. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stay focused on your creative dreams and the type of life you aspire to have. Dont let petty emo-tional situations stop you from following through with your plans. Approach life uniquely and be origi-nal in your pursuits and investments. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sign up for something that encourages you to meet new people. Communication is your ticket to a better life. Learn all you can and make a move to find a better posi-tion. A change in location will do you good. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Helping others will be draining. Put a cap on how much you will do or offer to avoid being rail-roaded into something that doesnt suit your current situation or plans. Partners are likely to overreact and make impulsive moves. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Emotions will be close to the surface, causing some problems for you when dealing with per-sonal or professional rela-tionships. A change will be expected and required if you are to make peace with someone you respect. Love is in the stars. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Rely on your inner feelings to help you make the best choice possible when dealing with con-tracts or legal, financial or health matters. Secrecy and meddling will lead to a problem with someone you need as an ally. Honesty will help you maintain con-trol. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Hes battled injury, but hes hun gry to get back. Hell con tinue to get stronger and be the guy that can dominate on our defense. If we can get him back to form, thats only going to help us have a dominant year. BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City Reporter Tyrone Sands wants to have 15 sacks for the Tigers defense this season and win state. to play anyone and hang with them. At FCA camp, I didnt get sacked one time. It is a good feeling to stay upright. Bakers interceptions increased from four as a sophomore to 12 last year. Jackson said facing tougher defenses and too many third-and-long situ ations contributed to the number. I am working on my accuracy, putting it in range of the receiver and out of range of the defend er, and being smarter about the throws, Baker said. Baker will get to turn the tables on opposing quarter backs this season. Jackson expects him to play a lot at safety. I am excited about safe ty, Baker said. So far it is my job. I am working hard and learning the defense. Im prepared. Jaguars name Gabbert starting QB for season Associated Press JACKSONVILLE Blaine Gabbert has a start ing job if hes healthy. Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley named Gabbert his starting quar terback Monday, the same day he announced the for mer Missouri standout will miss the rest of the pre season because of a broken thumb. Gabbert has a hairline fracture in his right thumb, an injury sustained dur ing Saturday nights 37-13 exhibition loss to the New York Jets. Gabbert completed 13 of 16 passes for 165 yards and a touchdown in three series arguably his best showing in three years. He banged his hand on a defenders helmet during his final throw. Gabbert wont need sur gery, but he will wear a protective brace while the bone heals. The Jaguars believe he should be able to return to practice in two weeks and be ready for the Sept. 8 opener against Kansas City. Normally a break would require surgery or six to eight weeks, Bradley said. Its not the same with this injury. They feel like in two weeks he should have a chance to come back and begin his prep for Kansas City. The Jaguars insisted all offseason that Gabbert and Chad Henne were compet ing for the starting job. But many outsiders believe the scenario was created to put extra pressure and strain on Gabbert, and see how he would respond. Although Gabbert struggled at times in prac tice and did little in the preseason opener, his performance Saturday night was enough to convince Jacksonvilles coaching staff that hes the guy. Bradley doesnt antici pate a quick change, either. The reason why we took this length of time is so that we would have some con viction and to stay strong, said Bradley.
