Should the hospital be sold to a private owner, LSHA would no longer levy taxes on the publicaround $3 million a year, accord ing to Executive Director Jack Berry. The board of trustees held a public hearing prior to their regularly-scheduled meeting to hear input from local members of the com munity. However, only one person spoke to the board. If you shut this down, you may save the taxpayers some money every year, began Bob Jordan, a local medical malpractice lawyer.

By STEVEN RICHMOND srichmond@lakecityreporter.com Lake City Middle School eighth-grader Jack Duarte won the Columbia County Spelling Bee Monday with complacency, but should avoid the word if he hopes to win the upcoming regional competition in Jacksonville next month. Considering how hard he worked to prepare for Mondays competition, that shouldnt be a problem. Niblack Elementary fifth grader TDeja Rowe narrowly missed the word hercu lean, affording her a runner-up position where she would shoulder the burden of spelling at the regional level should Duarte drop out of the running. Roughly 50 family members and friends of the competitors sat silently in the audito rium of the School Board complex, watch ing with bated breath as 13 fifth to eighth grade students, each representing area schools, spelled and misspelled words such as lucrative, diadem, malaise, acryl ics, omnibus and dodecahedron. I was so nervous, Duarte said after his win. I spent a couple hours a night studying words from different languages. His parents, Diogenes and Theresa Duarte, said he has read hundreds of books since his Westside Elementary kin dergarten teacher Denise Jordan instilled a love of reading in their son. We are very proud, Diogenes Duarte said. For spelling bee champ, By JIM TURNER The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott will ask lawmak ers to increase funding to $8.8 billion for roads, bridg es, ports and other transit needs in Florida as he con tinues to slowly roll out dif ferent aspects of his budget plan for next year. Scott said Monday his record transpor tation funding proposal, $200 mil lion more than in the cur rent year, will further spur economic development and create jobs. When I came in, I said how do you get this econ omy growing? Scott said during an appearance at the Jacksonville port, known as JAXPORT. Tourism will do it, but the other thing was that we have to focus on building things. On Friday, Scott who entered office in 2011 slashing a state budget he said was weighted down with short-sided, frivo lous, wasteful projects announced he will seek $100 million for the states tourism arm, Visit Florida, an increase of $35 million from the current year. The proposal for the Department of Transportation on Monday includes $138 million for seaport improvements, $3.8 billion for road construc tion, $192 million for bridge maintenance, $134 million for safety initiatives, and $90 million to bridge a 2.6mile section of the Tamiami Trail west of Miami to improve the southern flow of the Florida Everglades. Ports funding has been a priority for Scott since tak ing office, with more than $640 million directed toward expanding the states 15 sea ports since 2011. The focus, backed by state business groups, has been to make Florida a global shipping hub as the widening of the Panama Canal is expected to be completed in 2015. Its not if but when Florida becomes the trade gateway to America, FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad said. An inland port is envi sioned at the North Florida Intermodal Park in Columbia County to take some of the overflow cargo from the added ship traffic. Scott and lawmakers this year are heading into the budget-building process with a potential surplus of $1 billion. Scott, who is up for reelection in the fall, has also asked lawmakers to slash $500 million in fees and taxes. The funding requests will be included in Scotts over all annual budget proposal, which will be sent to the Legislature before the 2014 session starts in March.

By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com Poultry, waterfowl and other birds were treated like royalty for most of the day Saturday at the Columbia County Fairgrounds. Most of the birds were car ried to and fro, they had been bathed, their feathers were neat, clean and tidy, as was their food no scratching in the dirt for snacks on this day. The birds were contestants in the 2014 Florida Sunshine Classic, an open poultry show that drew competitors from Florida, Alabama, Canada, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Indiana, Virginia, Texas and West Virginia. At least 100 bird owners brought more than 1,400 birds to Saturdays competition, which was the 26th year of the show. Maryann Van Heusen, of Lake City, is a member of the Florida Poultry Fanciers Association, and has been showing chickens for close to two decades. It all started when my daughter was about three years old and got her first chicken, she said. She started showing chickens and it just grew from there and now shes 21 years old.

Pasco County Sheriff’s spokesman Doug Tobin said two couples had been watching “Lone Survivor” Monday at a movie theater in Wesley Chapel, north of Tampa, when the suspect and his wife apparently took issue with the couple in front of them over use of the phones. Tobin said the argument led to the shooting. Both victims were airlifted to a Tampa-area hospital. The man later died, but the female victim’s injuries weren’t considered life-threatening. The sheriff’s office says a bystander detained the suspect until deputies arrived. Authorities didn’t immediately identify the suspect. No charges have been reported.Missing Mo. child found safe in Fla. ANDERSON, Mo. — A 6-month-old baby who was taken from his great-grandfather’s home in southwest Missouri was found alive in Florida and his parents are in custody, authorities said. Anderson police said in a news release that the infant, Mitchell Farris, was “healthy and safe” when he was found Sunday in Miami with his parents, Preston Farris, 34, and Anastasia McDaniel, 30. McDaniel’s grandfather, Gerald Steele, has legal custody of the child, although court documents don’t explain why. The parents are being held in the Miami-Dade County jail without bond, awaiting extradition to Missouri’s McDonald County on warrants for parental kidnapping. Jail records don’t indicate if they have attorneys, and no attorney is listed for them in online Missouri court records. Florida authorities were contacted Saturday morn-ing after the investigation showed the parents were in the Jacksonville, Fla., area, police said. Authorities determined that McDaniel and Farris had left the Jacksonville area and were in the Miami-Dade area, where they were taken into custody while walking, police said. Anderson police said Monday the child is in the custody of Florida child services until Missouri authorities can pick him up.16-year-old missing off coast BOYNTON BEACH — The Coast Guard is searching for a 16-year-old boy who went missing while swimming in the waters off South Florida. The Coast Guard says Boynton Beach Police reported the teen missing Sunday evening. Authorities say he was last seen swimming shirt-less near the Boynton Beach Inlet. The teen went underwater but failed to resurface while swimming with a cousin. Palm Beach County authorities have joined the Coast Guard’s search for the boy.Man dies after pulled from triathlon NORTH NAPLES — Authorities say a man has died after being pulled from the swimming por-tion of a triathlon in south-west Florida. Another racer alerted lifeguards that the man was struggling in the rough waters Sunday. North Naples Fire District Capt. Chuck Bacon says the man was brought to shore on a paddleboard. The man was pronounced dead at a hospital. The cause of death was not released. Organizers of the HITS Endurance triathlon tell the Naples Daily News that the man’s death was a tragedy and racer safety is their first priority. Prince to appear on ‘New Girl’ PASADENA F ox’s post-Super Bowl party will include Prince making a guest appearance on the comedy “New Girl.” In an episode of the show that will air directly after the big game next month, Zooey Deschanel’s character is invited to a mansion party hosted by Prince — a party her friends are determined to crash. Fox will also air an episode of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” that night after “New Girl,” with the show fresh off its Golden Globe award for best comedy. The Super Bowl is traditionally the most-watched TV event of the year, so the time slots after it are considered prime real estate.First lady’s 2nd gown lent to Smithsonian WASHINGTON — Michelle Obama’s fashion is making history again, at least for the next year, as her second inaugural gown will be displayed at the Smithsonian Institution. Before it’s stowed away for a future presidential library, Obama’s ruby-colored chiffon gown made by designer Jason Wu is being lent to the National Museum of American History for a year to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Smithsonian’s first ladies exhibi-tion. The dress will be paired with Obama’s shoes designed by Jimmy Choo and will go on display begin-ning Tuesday. While the Smithsonian traditionally collects each first lady’s first inaugural gown, second gowns are usually shown only in presidential libraries. This is the first time the museum has displayed a second inaugural gown. Fey and Poehler: Golden as Globes hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler took the gold again. For a second year, these funny ladies were the most-est as co-hosts of NBC’s Golden Globes party. Fey explained their return engagement by noting, “This is Hollywood, and if something kind of works they’ll just keep doing it until everybody hates it.” Not these returnees, who again presided with seeming effortless sass and hardly a joke off-target. During their shared opening rou-tine, Fey’s zinger about George Clooney and his penchant for dating younger women may have been the most riotously received wisecrack in recent awards-cast history. While Poehler and Fey set the perfect irreverent tone for the Globes and its party-hearty tradi-tion, the three-hour live broadcast from Beverly Hills, Calif., was remarkably well-behaved.Rodman apologizes for not helping missionary BEIJING — Former basketball star Dennis Rodman apologized on Monday for not being able to help an American missionary detained in North Korea during his trip there to play in a game to celebrate the birthday of his friend and leader Kim Jong Un. “I’m sorry, I’m sorry I couldn’t do anything,” Rodman told media on his arrival at Beijing airport from a weeklong trip. “It’s not my fault.

Joshua Scott Nichols, 18, 274 SW Robin Lane, was charged with possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia in connection with the case. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, a law enforcement canine was brought to the school to assist the Fort White school administra tion in a sweep of the stu dent parking lot for any narcotics or illegal sub stances. Canine Zombie alleg edly alerted on a 2000 Jeep Cherokee in the parking lot that was registered to Nichols. Nichols was retrieved from class with his belong ings and car keys and was taken to the parking lot. Once in the parking lot, authorities reportedly asked Nichols whether there was anything ille gal inside his vehicle that would make the dog signal an alert. Nichols was said to be cooperative and told the deputies he had two smok ing pipes inside his center console, along with a little bit of marijuana. When authorities searched the vehicle, they reportedly found several pieces of drug parapherna lia throughout the vehicle and in the center console, where authorities also found a small baggie containing suspected marijuana. Authorities also report edly found an ashtray and several types of rolling paper along with an empty bottle of Burnetts Vodka underneath the driver side back passenger seat in a storage area. A bottle containing an unknown liquid was found in the rear passenger stor age compartment behind the drivers seat.

Cindy Kinard, American Poultry Association/ American Bantam Association Youth Leader for Florida, said children aged 3 18 affiliated with 4H as well as independents, participated in Saturdays poultry show.

If the hospital is sold, its suddenly owned by a forprofit entity that may make drastic changes to the hos pital. The board then heard a presentation from Bruce Kelley, Senior Vice President of the Hospital Mergers & Acquisitions branch of asset manage ment firm First Southwest, who spoke at length on the steps, pitfalls and con siderations involved in the sale of a hospital. If you want to sell the hospital, youve got to define your objectives, Kelley said. You have to know why youre doing it and what you hope to accomplish. Among the key negotia tion points, Kelley suggest ed: find a purchase price that reflects the value of the hospital, secure a capi tal commitment, gather the input of local physi cians and determine the difference between what is and is not an essential service. The board then began discussion between its members whether they felt the sale would be in the communitys best interest a formality required by Florida statute if LSHA, a public entity, plans to sell its hospital to a private company. Board member Lory Chancy shared Jordans dissent. I still do not feel that it is in the best interest of our community to sell our hospital, Chancy said. I think the lease agreement we have is one of the most pristine ventures anyone has in the state. It helps offset our taxes, helps us to take care of our indi gent, who will still have to be taken care of one way or another, and it affords us some latitude in making sure theyre taken care of properly in the county. Fellow board mem ber Mark Vann offered a rebuttal. We have very, very lim ited, if any, control over how patients are taken care of in that hospital. We dont oversee patient care... Vann said. I still think that if we were man aging the hospital, that would be more of a prior ity in my mind. I dont see that their care is going to go down just because were not sitting around this table having a bill pre sented to us. I think if we can come up with a plan that makes sense, that formulates the removal of that additional 3 million a year in tax burden to the community, then its abso lutely vital to consider it... I think its important to give it a shot. The board then voted 4-1 Chancy casting the sole nay that the sale was indeed in the commu nitys best interest. I have no concerns [that patient care will diminish], Berry said. You have nay sayers everywhere. Thats what they said when we first leased the hospital... I dont see them gauging customers. The board also voted to send out request for proposals for an appraiser to determine the value of LSHAs assets and for a transaction broker.

Matt Mead was quoted as saying, “Name recognition and dynasties – that just doesn’t fly in Wyoming.” He was trying to explain why the 47-year-old former State Department official, who also hap-pens to be the daughter of Dick Cheney (a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Wyoming for six terms before becoming vice president), didn’t catch fire with local voters. Mead’s implication was that Wyoming vot-ers think for themselves and aren’t swayed by such trivial concerns as family lineage. But the truth is, dynasties don’t actually do so badly in Wyoming. Relatives of previous officehold-ers don’t always win when they run, but they don’t always lose either. Mead’s grandfather, it turns out, served as both governor and senator (as the New York Times story noted). Former Sen. Alan K. Simpson’s father was both governor and senator as well, and his brother Pete served for several years as a member of the state Legislature. This is not just a Wyoming phenomenon. Americans like dynas-ties. Being the wife of a president (like Hillary Rodham Clinton) or the son of a president (like John Quincy Adams or George W. Bush) or a senator (like Al Gore) may not guarantee a future in politics, but it doesn’t appear to hurt. Liz Cheney’s real problem was probably not a popular backlash against her famous name. Of more significance, we suspect, was her belief that she could waltz into a state where she had not lived for many decades, purchase a house (which she did in 2012) and run for office against a popular incumbent on the strength of her family ties. The Cheney name may be famous in Wyoming, but it was not lost on voters that she went to high school in Virginia, college in Colorado and law school in Illinois. She lived in the Washington, D.C., area until the Senate race began and would have ended up there again pretty quickly had she won. There were plenty of other missteps that could have led to her drop in the polls, including her very public spat with her lesbian sister, Mary, over the issue of same-sex marriage. There was a disagree-ment between the Cheneys and the popular former Sen. Simpson. There was her decision to run not for a local seat but directly for the U.S. Senate in her first bid for pub-lic office. When she withdrew from the race Monday, Cheney cited “serious health issues” in her family. ... The point is that her effort to win the hearts of the people of Wyoming without really being one of them was ham-fisted and presumptu-ous – and, unlike Hillary Clinton’s successful carpetbagger race for U.S. Senate in New York in 2000, it was recognized as such by the vot-ers. Frankly, that’s heartening.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.comObamacare security gap must be fixed What did Christie know and when did he know it?W hy is it there is always a sameness in political scandal? No one ever seems to profit from history. Take the governor of New Jersey, a state where political hard-ball is notorious. The recent best hope for the Republican presidential nomination, Gov. Chris Christie, who can’t seem to keep his weight in check despite tying off his stomach or some such business, has proven to millions of potential supporters that his appe-tite for confrontation and bombast may be equal to his gastronomi-cal urges. The punitive actions of his trusted aides against a minor political figure of the opposite party have landed him in the soup, which despite the distance still remain-ing before a national election, may eventually drown him. Did he know ahead of time about the lane closings on the George Washington Bridge that caused a four-day nightmare for the citizens of Fort Lee, N.J., that this was the work of his friends in his behalf? Despite his fervent denials, there always will be doubt and with that a lingering concern about whether he is the kind of guy who might actu-ally support this kind of absurd act of vengeful irresponsibility. The Watergate inspired question “what did he know and when did he know it?” is not likely to go away, considering at least two investiga-tions and the possibility of both civil and criminal litigation. Woe is me to the GOP establishment who saw him as a possible 2016 standard bearer of modera-tion against the radical right. The party’s mainliners can’t seem to catch a break. This juvenile action against Fort Lee’s Democratic mayor for not endorsing the governor before his landslide election last fall is in the worst traditions of the “don’t get mad, get even” philosophy. History is replete with examples of the disastrous impact of a ricocheting bullet fired under those circum-stances. To be trite, what goes around comes around. Shades of Richard Nixon and the dirty tricks gang who once plotted to set up a floating whore house off Collins Avenue in Miami to blackmail del-egates to the Democratic National Convention. Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed on this one but not others. It would have been much better for Christie way back there in September of last year when the closings took place if he had paid attention to what was quickly becoming the world’s largest traf-fic jam on the New Jersey side of the world’s most highly trafficked bridge. Someone of his supposed political acumen and perception must have been aware of the com-ing sound of doom. When the press inquiries began to emerge about an alleged “study” that no one could or would answer an announcement by him to look into the matter might have backed up his later denials of knowledge or involvement, made them much easier to believe. Instead, he did what any number of predecessors in high office did under the circum-stances. He shrugged it all off as an attempt to diminish his standing as the putative front runner in the Republican presidential scramble just now building. Even if that were true (I’m not saying it wasn’t to some degree because front runners are always forced to play dodgeball) a public statement would have gone a long way to softening the blow to his standing when the emails linking his top aides to the whole affair began to emerge recently. Once again that lesson never seems to be impressed on most pol-iticians. Only Dwight Eisenhower followed the edicts of an Army life-time where “just don’t get caught” is the first rule. He wasted no time in dismissing his most trusted aide Sherman Adams before Adams’ indiscretions brought down the White House. Had Nixon, Ike’s vice president, followed that example and cleaned out the Committee for the Reelection of the President two days after Watergate, the crisis might have been averted. Harry Truman, on the other hand, refused to do in his cronies when they strayed and it tarnished his image. There always is an element of arrogance in these matters. The principal in high places somehow seems to believe the myth that his own importance and position will protect him, forcing him later to desperately issue personal apolo-gies for the alleged lies and failings of subordinates. So Christie sent them to the political guillotine and pleaded for for-giveness. Good luck on that, Tiny. Q McClatchy-Tribune News Service Q The Tampa Tribune Cheney’s problem wasn’t her nameI t defies common sense that there is no federal law or requirement that Americans be notified of any breach-es of their personal information in Obamacare — even though laws mandate the private sector alert customers and users in these situations. We’d like to know how federal bureaucrats would feel if a hacker retrieved their Social Security numbers, dates of birth and other vital information and used it to exploit them. We guarantee you they would take quick action. Current federal policy doesn’t come close to cutting it. An agency within the Department of Health and Human Services decides whether a breach poses a risk of harm to citizens and whether they should be notified. Fortunately, some Republican lawmakers rec-ognize notification should not be optional — that Americans have a right to know, period. Fixing this flaw — one of many — in Obamacare is especially important consider-ing the major breach that recently occurred at Target, as House Republican Leader Eric Cantor has noted. A former Social Security Administration chief has called Healthcare.gov “a hacker’s dream,” computer experts have repeatedly voiced security concerns and several state attorneys general have pleaded with HHS to take correc-tive action. And legitimate questions have been raised about the qualifications of Obamacare “navigators” who help Americans sign up for the health insurance program. Congress has a chance to fix this glaring oversight starting today when the House considers legislation that would require the government notify people within two days. The bill, sponsored by Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee Chairman Joseph Pitts of Pennsylvania, is based on legislation previously filed by U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-Palm Harbor. Bilirakis’ bill would require quicker notification — an hour — which is the exact standard that HHS requires for its contractors and Obamacare’s state exchanges. That would be superior; the earlier notification, the better chance to take faster protective action. But whether it’s one hour or no later than two days, people need to know when their personal information is stolen or breached — their finances could be at stake. Congress must address this security gap immediately. Dan K. Thomasson Q Dan K. Thomasson is a longtime Washington journalist and former vice president of Scripps Howard Newspapers.

Some of the exciting events taking place at Shining Star Academy of the Arts include the Million Minute Marathon, a Door Decorating Contest and the school wide “Quick Write” in addition to other daily events. M elrose Park Elementary would like to thank all students for returning to school with “eager-to-learn” atti-tudes after a long holiday. They will certainly need them to stay focused during this very busy month. Parents, please mark your calendars for these important events: On Monday, Jan. 13, Melrose Park began their “Celebrate Literacy Week.” Each day we ask that students participate in some fun dress-up activities. On Wednesday, Jan. 15, Melrose is giving a big “Hats Off to Books” by allowing the children to have a hat on during school. Thursday, Jan. 16 is “Score with Books” when students will get to wear their favorite sports team’s apparel. Friday, Jan. 17 students and faculty have a chance to show off their literary knowledge by dress-ing as their favorite story book char-acter. The Melrose Park team hopes to see some creative costumes! Also, prepare your child for the Accelerated Reading Marathon which will take place on Friday as well. Students will be given the opportunity to take as many AR tests as possible. Make sure your little ones have read the book at least twice since only scores of 80% and above are counted toward each AR goal. Another highly important day for Melrose Park students will be Thursday, Jan. 16, when report cards will go home. Let’s all work together to congratulate those who excelled this 9 weeks and give that extra attention to those who need it most!

Fort White remains undefeated in non-tourney games By BRANDON FINLEY bfinley@lakecityreporter.com Fort White High has posi tioned its basketball team for another exciting playoff conclusion to the 2013-2014 basketball season. The Indians are undefeat ed in the regular season, despite falling in two tour nament contests. With a 14-2 record and only a few weeks remain ing in the regular season, the Indians are trying to close out what is arguably the best two year run in the schools history.

Fort White closes the week with a couple of road games beginning at Interlachen High at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday and concluding with Keystone Heights High at 7 p.m. on Friday.

Fort White has a 14-2 record with an undefeated 8-0 mark in district play. P.K. Yonge is 6-1 in the district. The Waves only district loss come at the hands of Fort White and P.K. Yonge sports a 12-5 record on the year. Last week, the Indians put together one of their most impressive performances of the season with an 8441 victory against Melody Christian before closing the week out with a 68-63 win against Santa Fe High. We are playing well, Fort White head coach Isiah Phillips said. Were playing a lot smarter and more disciplined than we have. Thats how we have to play heading into the end of the season. Melton Sanders led all scorers against Melody Christian with 22 points in the contest. Christian Hazel had 10 points and Chris Cottrell had eight points. Qarin Porter had 23 points to lead the Indians against the Raiders. Sanders had 17 points, Jalen Wyche had 15 points and Paul Perry added 10 points. Phillips knows that the Indians have to con tinue playing at this level throughout the rest of the season if the Indians are going to make a run in the playoffs. Fort White will have a good warmup for the play offs with a trio of tough teams over the last few weeks. We have Suwannee, P.K. Yonge and Columbia, Phillips said. We have to play our smartest to beat these teams or even make it competitive. Im pleased with the way were playing over the last few weeks and see how impor tant that is. Although the Indians have clinched the top seed in the District 5-4A tournament, Fort White is close to closing out the chase. We havent lost a district game, and P.K. Yonge is the closest to us, Phillips said. We have to beat them again at their place. The key is being more disciplined and executing in our offensive sets. We cant just go out there and freelance. Phillips said a lot of times this season the Indians have done a lot without playing disciplined basketball. Were relying more on athletic ability, Phillips said. We have to be able to run our sets when the teams are evenly matched. We have to go out and exe cute. The good news is that the Indians are still learn ing and their hard work is paying off. Theyre showing effort, Phillips said. Theyre play ing hard and with a lot of focus. Thats our main thing, we have to continue to play with a focus.

Rivalry showdowns. Talk about a couple of juicy title-game tussles. It’s Peyton Manning vs. Tom Brady — Round 15 — in the AFC champion-ship game next Sunday, while the San Francisco 49ers square off against the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC title bout. Yep, here we go again. With a Super Bowl trip on the line. “It’s the Broncos versus the Patriots and cer-tainly Tom and I have played against each other a lot,” Manning said, “but when you get to the AFC championship, it’s about two good teams that have been through a lot to get there.” Manning helped lead Denver past the San Diego Chargers 24-17 on Sunday, setting up anoth-er meeting with Brady and New England, which beat Indianapolis 43-22 on Saturday night. The Broncos (14-3) opened as 6-point favorites for the game at Denver. “That’s two of the greats,” Denver wide receiver Eric Decker said. “It’s going to be talked about a lot throughout the week.” Manning and Brady have squared off 14 times throughout their careers, with the Patriots quarterback holding a 10-4 edge in the head-to-head matchup, including a 34-31 overtime victory in November. They each have a win against the other in the AFC champion-ship game: Brady in the 2003 playoffs and Manning in the 2006 postseason with Indianapolis. And the winner went on to win the Super Bowl each time. But, it’s not necessarily the same old story this time around. Both the Broncos and Patriots have been winning with balanced offens-es, relying not only on the strong arms of their record-breaking quarterbacks but also on their running games. Manning was 25 of 36 for 230 yards and two TDs, but the Broncos controlled the clock on the ground. After gaining just 18 yards against San Diego last month, the Broncos ran for 133 yards, including 82 by Knowshon Moreno, whose 3-yard TD run put them ahead 24-7 with 8:12 left. Associated PressNEW YORK — Alex Rodriguez was dealt the most severe punishment in the history of baseball’s drug agreement when an arbitrator ruled the New York Yankees third base-man is suspended for the entire 2014 season as a result of a drug inves-tigation by Major League Baseball. The decision by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz on Saturday cut the suspen-sion issued Aug. 5 by base-ball Commissioner Bud Selig from 211 games to this year’s entire 162-game regular-season schedule plus any postseason games. The three-time American League Most Valuable Player will lose just over $22 million of his $25 mil-lion salary. Rodriguez vowed to continue his fight in federal court to reverse the deci-sion. “It’s virtually impossible. The arbitration will stand. I think it’s almost inconceiv-able that a federal court would overturn it,” said for-mer baseball Commissioner Fay Vincent, a graduate of Yale Law School. “The arbi-tration is itself an appeal from the commissioner’s judgment. How many appeals do you go?” Rodriguez is the most high-profile player ensnared by baseball’s drug rules, which were first agreed to in 2002 as management and union attempted to com-bat the use of steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs. In sustaining more than three-quarters of Selig’s initial penalty, Horowitz’s decision will be widely viewed as a vic-tory for the 79-year-old Selig, who has ruled base-ball since 1992 and says he intends to retire in January 2015. A 14-time All-Star, Rodriguez has been base-ball’s highest-paid player under a $275 million, 10-year contract. He has spent parts of the last six seasons on the disabled list and will be 39 years old when he is eligible to return to the field in 2015. He is signed with the Yankees through the 2017 season. Rodriguez admitted five years ago he used perfor-mance-enhancing drugs while with Texas. Rodriguez dealt most severe punishment in baseball history

DEAR ABBY: My family has been keep-ing a secret from my grandmother. I have a 17-month-old daughter that she doesn’t know exists. I wanted to tell my grandma from the start about her great-granddaughter (her first), but I am afraid to. My family thinks that telling her will cause too much stress on her. NO one in the family takes my feelings into consideration. I think my grandmother should know she’s a great-grandma. The problem is, I don’t know how to tell her. She’s 90 years old. I’m afraid if I say something now, it really MIGHT be too stress-ful for her. Also, I’m afraid that if I reveal this secret, it will start a family feud. I want a relationship with my grandma like I used to have. I cry every time I talk to her on the phone because I have to lie to her about my day-to-day life and why I can’t come to see her. I am really starting to resent my fami-ly. Please help. — SECRET MOMMY IN NEVADA DEAR SECRET MOMMY: Your grandmother wasn’t born yester-day; she’s 90. I’m sure that in her decades of living she has seen plenty of life. While she will probably be shocked that she was kept in the dark this long, I agree she should know the truth. She should also know that you love her, which is why you are tell-ing her the news. She may or may not want to see her great-grandchild, but the choice should be hers. DEAR ABBY: I’m in my 70s, married for 50 years. I worked outside the home for many years and earned retirement benefits. There have been many ups and downs in my life, for me per-sonally as well as for mem-bers of my family. Of course, there have been good times, too. I feel blessed. All my life I have been the “go-to girl” for my fam-ily as a daughter, sister, wife, mother and aunt for help or advice. I love them, but I’m tired. How do I retire my “crown” -which has been overwhelming at times – without hurting or alienating anyone? There seem to be so many problems and only one of me. Many times I have felt stretched too thin, but now my health and energy are no longer what they once were. I’m reasonably healthy, but I’m very tired. I value my Judeo/ Christian belief of “doing unto others.” Am I being selfish? — GO-TO GIRL IN NEW MEXICO DEAR GO-TO GIRL: Your mind and body are trying to tell you something important. I hope you will pay attention before your health suffers because it could if you don’t start drawing the line. There is nothing selfish or wrong about saying: “I love you, but I can’t help you. I can’t because I’m at a point in my life where I can’t handle stress like I used to.” And if the person doesn’t get it, you should repeat it. DEAR ABBY: I have a dear friend who I have been friends with for years. However, there is one thing I can’t stand about her. It’s her vulgar language. Every sentence that comes out of her mouth includes the F-word. She’s not a soft-spoken individual, so oth-ers can hear her. It embar-rasses me and makes me not want to be around her in public. How can I tell her she embarrasses me when she talks that way? — SOFT-SPOKEN FRIEND DEAR FRIEND: Tell her in exactly the way you told me. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Prepare for the unexpected. Don’t make impulsive moves when thought and planning are required. Size up your situation, look at your opponent or dilemma, and make simple moderate alterations to counter any diversion. Set a standard and stick to it. ++++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): A community event will bring you closer to someone you share the same interests with. You will learn a great deal from someone with experience and clout. A partnership will develop with someone responsible. Stick to the truth. +++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Say what’s on your mind. You may face opposition, but at least you will know where you stand and who your allies are. Once you establish your position, it will be easier for you to follow through with your plans. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Emotional issues will mount, making it important to reveal your feelings and clear the air before situations get blown out of proportion. Re-evalu-ate your position and make the changes that will help you move forward. Leave the past alone. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t fear changing your mind if you are offered an opportunity. Talks will lead to change, and change will help you finish what’s holding you back. Altering your sur-roundings will do you good and help you establish your direction. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take a break; a little pampering and self-indul-gence will do you good. Self-improvements and socializing with your favor-ite person will make this a day to remember. Keep things simple and enjoy life’s little pleasures. Reflect and move forward. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Finish what you start or take a pass. Avoid med-dling and confrontations. Stick to your priorities, not what someone else wants you to do. Use your quick wit and intelligence to make improvements and help you build stronger ties. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): You’ll learn a lot if you establish your position within your com-munity. Participating in events that involve your friends, family or cul-tural background will open doors of communication that will help you make decisions that can improve your life. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Face emotional issues and deal with matters that have been holding you back or keep-ing you from doing what you know in your heart is the best thing for you. Clear up the past and make a point to secure what you want. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Frustration and anger will lead to set-backs. Think your strategy through and make your decision based on what you know is true and how you want to handle any consequences or turmoil that arise. Staying calm and being understanding will help. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Voice your thoughts. You may face some negativity, but that will help you fine-tune what you want to do. Put your heart into a per-sonal project that can help benefit you or someone you love. Taking action will make a statement. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): What you offer others will help you out in business and finan-cial concerns, but don’t expect loved ones or some-one who counts on you per-sonally to understand your strategy. Keep the peace at home but don’t miss out on a good deal. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
