Thomas final chapter comes to a close By AMANDA WILLIAMSON awilliamson@lakecityreporter.com Every hunting season used to find Dan Thomas sitting in his deer stand, waiting for the perfect buck to wander past his crosshairs. Now, the echo of his .308 rifle has been silenced. Thomas, 92, passed away on Tuesday, Jan. 14, at the Health Center of Lake City after a lengthy illness. He was the son of late John Euell Thomas and Ollie Milton Thomas. Mr. Dan had many chapters in his life, many, many chapters, Sallie Reddick, his companion of 23 years, said. To know him was to love him. I never heard anyone say one bad word about him. Born in the spring of 1921, Thomas came into the world much like he would spend the rest of his days in the woods. He wasnt born in a local hospi tal, but instead in his child hood home off Thomas Camp Road. Thomas lived a hard life on his fathers farm, frequently spend ing long days plowing the fields with a mule, raising a variety of livestock and liv ing off the land. According to Reddick, Thomas remembered star ing up through the harness es as a 5-year-old boy at the family horses while working the plow. He had five sib lings: Jack, Edna, Rosalie, Leonard and Thelma. To support the family, Thomas Dan Thomas was 92. METROCREATIVEIMAGES /Courtesy By STEVEN RICHMOND srichmond@lakecityreporter.com Columbia County residents should expect to see more ice on the roads than from the sky as temperatures are expected to dip below freezing Wednesday night. The National Weather Service in Jacksonville posted a 90 per cent chance of rain and sleet for Wednesday with a high of 38 degrees for the day and a low of 28 at night. However, residents would be more likely to see sleet toward the north ern sections of Columbia County, said Emergency Management Director Shayne Morgan. People may see pellets of ice from the sky, but its not going to be a widespread sleet event, Morgan said. Itll be more iso lated to the area north of I10. However, the sub-freezing tem peratures could cause hazards on the roadways, including icing on bridges and overpasses, as well as frozen puddles left after the rain. We urged people to use caution when theyre out on the roadways, Morgan said. Maybe leave a few extra minutes earlier and play it on the safe side. We want to make sure everybody gets through this safe and sound. The icy conditions will continue into Thursday morning, with the NWS predicting 20 to 40 percent chances of wintry mix, a combina tion of rain and partially melted ice droplets. The forecast for Columbia County isnt as dire as western parts of the Florida panhandle Escambia County declared a State of Emergency that began at mid night last night and continues until midnight Thursday. As the week continues, tempera tures are likely to rise to the midto-upper 70s with lows in the 50s amid partly cloudy skies over the weekend. However, there are still plenty of weeks of winter left. Honestly, as different as this year has been, it wouldnt surprise me to see more cold weather come our way, Morgan said. No snow, but sleet in the forecast for North Florida. By JIM TURNER The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott reached his proposed $500 million in election-year tax and fee cuts Monday as he rolled out his support for a 15-day hurricane sales-tax holiday projected to save taxpayers $20 million. If approved, it would be the first sales-tax holiday on hurricane supplies since 2007. The announcement came as Scott prepares to release his full 201415 budget proposal on Wednesday. This tax holiday will allow families to better protect and safeguard their homes during a storm, Scott said in a prepared statement. The recommended discount pushes Scotts taxand fee-cut proposals to an estimated $514 million for the upcom ing legislative session. The bulk of the savings would come through a $401 million proposal to cut a controversial 2009 hike in vehi cle registration fees. That hike was approved by the Republican-controlled Legislature and signed by Scotts potential November gubernatorial challenger Charlie Crist, who is run ning this year as a Democrat. Scott will also ask lawmakers --as they craft the fiscal plan for the next year --to extend a popular three-day back-to-school sales tax holiday on clothes, supplies and electronics to 10 days, and to shave about $33 million in state revenue by cutting approximately 50 different corporate fil ing fees. The school sales tax has been estimat ed as being a $60 million hit to state and local rev enue. The hur ricane sea son holiday was enacted from 2005 through 2007, following the 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons in which seven named storms made landfall in Florida. But as the housing market went bust, and state coffers were no longer flush, the idea of the storm season tax break was set adrift. The governors hurricane-tax holi day proposal tops a 12-day tax break period included in a measure (SB 362) filed by Sen. Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island. In November, state economists, sitting as the Revenue Estimating Conference, projected that Bradleys proposal would save taxpayers about $3.8 million. At the time, economists said the calculation was difficult as many Floridians already have the stormSleet-slick roads Hurricane holiday may save taxpayers $20 million Officers fundraising for Special Olympics By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com Local law enforcement officers are raising funds and awareness for Special Olympics Florida at an event later this week. On Friday, from 4 8 p.m., representatives from several local law enforce ment agencies will be at the Publix Supermarket on US 90 west, collecting donations for the Special Olympics Florida. The fundraiser is in conjunc tion with the Proctor & Gamble Special Olympics Torch Campaign, accept ing donations and selling raffle tickets for a 7-day cruise for two with all proceeds going to Special Olympics Florida. Law enforcement officers from more than 300 Florida agen cies (police depart ments, sheriffs offices, Florida Department of Corrections, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Drug Enforcement Agency, U.S. customs, Air Force Police and Marine Patrol) all participate in the state-wide torch run to benefit the athletes of Special Olympics. Each year, more than 5,000 offi cers carry the torch on a 1,500-mile relay through 66 counties in Florida as the Guardians of Flame. The Law Enforcement Torch Run in Columbia County will take place 10 a.m. Wednesday, April 9. The event is slated to begin at the Department of Transportation office on Southwest Marion Avenue and proceed north to Teen Town, next to Memorial Stadium. In addition to the run, officers purchase shirts and caps, and host several fundraisers in town to raise funds which allow Special Olympic athletes to participate in the Summer Olympic Games.

In the early morning hours on Jan. 22, a Coast Guard fixed-wing aircraft spot-ted a 25-foot vessel speeding south of the Dominican Republic with four people on board. The Coast Guard said it detected several suspicious packages and called the British Royal military ship Wave Knight, which launched the Coast Guard helicopter. The Coast Guard helicopter then chased the vessel and fired warning shots. The people on board then started tossing pack-ages into the water. The helicopter then fired an object to disable the vessel so that law enforcement officials could board it. The four were arrested and the cocaine was seized, said Lt. Commander Gabe Somma, public affairs officer for the 7th district which includes Miami. Authorities did not immediately release the identities or nationalities of those arrested. “This $37 million worth of cocaine is not going to make it here,” Somma said from the Coast Guard station in Miami Beach. Last year, more than $5 billion worth of drugs were intercepted by the Coast Guard and federal partners, Somma said.More remains excavated at Fla. reform school yard TAMPA — The remains of 55 people have been unearthed from a graveyard at a former reform school with a history of abuse, researchers said Tuesday. University of South Florida researchers began excavating the graveyard at the now-closed Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys in September. The dig finished in December. Official records indicated 31 burials at the Marianna site, but researchers had estimated there would be about 50 graves. All the bodies found were interred in coffins either made at the school or bought from manufacturers, said Erin Kimmerle, a forensic anthropologist lead-ing the university’s investigation. Some were found under roads or overgrown trees, well away from the white, metal crosses marking the 31 officially recorded graves. Now, researchers will try to identify the remains and determine the causes of death. The bodies were buried sometime between the late 1920s and early 1950s, researchers said. “We know very little about those who are buried,” Kimmerle said. They found buttons, a stone marble in a boy’s pocket and hardware from cof-fins. Researchers recovered thousands of nails and a brass plate that read, “At rest,” likely from a coffin lid. DNA from the remains will be sent to the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification for analysis.

By DARA KAM NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE — Backers of a non-euphoric strain of cannabis that helps reduce seizures in children aren’t giving up on a legislative fix, but the politics of pot could make their uphill battle even steeper. A sharply divided Florida Supreme Court on Monday approved a ballot initiative that would allow doctors to prescribe medi-cal marijuana, rejecting arguments from Attorney General Pam Bondi, Republican legislative leaders and others that the proposal was mislead-ing and would give doc-tors broad discretion over who would qualify for the pot. Opposition to the medical marijuana pro-posal, which will be on the November ballot, could jeopardize the passage of a legislative measure that would legal-ize a marijuana extract known as “Charlotte’s Web” that proponents believe can dramatically reduce seizures in chil-dren with a rare form of epilepsy. Florida is one of a handful of states including Georgia where Republican-led legisla-tures are grappling with making the strain legal. Charlotte’s Web is an extract of the marijuana derivative cannabidiol, or CBD, but is low in the psychoactive compound tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. The strain is oil-based, can be taken oral-ly and doesn’t get users high, unlike the medical marijuana that would be authorized under the con-stitutional proposal. Backers of Charlotte’s Web are trying to draw clear lines between the two types of medical mari-juana with the aim of leg-islative approval in Florida this spring. Even if the medical marijuana amendment receives the 60 percent approval necessary for passage, it could be years before pot is available to patients in Florida. That’s too long to wait, said Peyton Moseley, whose 10-year-old adopted daughter RayAnn is one of an estimated 125,000 chil-dren in Florida diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy that can cause hundreds of sei-zures a day. Legislative authorization “is still our daugh-ter’s and 125,000 other Floridians’ best chance at getting this life-chang-ing medicine quickly,” Moseley said after Monday’s court rul-ing. “Having the full-on legalization of medical marijuana on the ballot in November is fine and good, but if your child’s life depended on her gain-ing access to a certain kind of medicine, would you want to leave that decision in the hands of the voters?” But the court’s decision to put the prescription pot question on the ballot could pose a conundrum for conservative lawmak-ers, already skeptical of the non-euphoric strain. “I think after people analyze it they are going to kind of line up. They’ll either say there is a right way involving these derivatives and there’s a wrong way and contrast it with the amendment. Or they’ll say people are going to get this all mixed up and think I’m for (medical marijuana). … It depends how their district reads and how they want to be seen,” said House Judiciary Chairman Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala. Baxley has thwarted an attempt by House Criminal Justice Chairman Matt Gaetz to include legaliza-tion of Charlotte’s Web in a larger committee bill. 3A Happy Birthday Patti Drew Markham 60 ROCKS!

The formula, called Cinnatrol™promotes healthy blood sugar levelsby effectively metabolizing glucoseinto energy. In a research study, allpatients taking just one capful ofthe liquid (one ounce) daily, dramati-cally lowered their blood sugar lev-els compared to a placebo group. An-other scientific study found that aningredient in Cinnatrol made insulin20 times more capable convertingblood sugar to energy. While individual results vary, onepatient in the first study lowered hisblood sugar from 220-245 to the100-130 range in only 28 days, de-spite being instructed not to changehis dietary habits or physical activ-ity. Some patients, under their doc-tors care, are able to reduce or elimi-nate their need for diabetic drugs.Scientists say that Cinnatrol helpsdiabetic drugs to work better.

Bradley’s proposal has its first legislative hearing Feb. 3 before the Senate Commerce and Tourism Committee. The House companion bill (HB 567) by Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, has yet to be scheduled for a committee appearance. A big factor in how much of the tax and fee cuts make it into the next budget depends on projections that economists will update as the legislative session gets underway. The current pro-jection is the state will enter the budget process with a roughly $1 billion surplus. HURRICANEContinued From 1Asold gator hides, cut fire-wood and helped out his neighbors. He would put down wells, put up fence, build barns and assist at a blacksmithing shop. “Life was hard back in those days,” Reddick said. “When they caught gators, you went into the water to get them. You didn’t do it the way they do it today with a gun.” As the Great Depression shook the country, Thomas attended the Deep Creek Consolidated School. In the fall of 1940, he married Kate Register. A true Lake City resident, Thomas never left the small, friendly community. “It was home, and he was busy. He was always busy,” Reddick said. After Thomas’ mother and father passed away, he took care of his younger siblings. To earn a living, he acquired a school bus and then leased it to the school board. He carried children to and from school for $75 a month. At the time, gas cost 10 cents a gallon. After two miscarriages, Dan and Kate Thomas had a son, James David, on May 20, 1943. Two more sons and a daughter followed in the five years after James David was born. As Lake City rolled into the 1950s, Dan and Kate Thomas had three more children. By 1960, the decided to move the family from Deep Creek into town. They purchased a home on St. Johns Street. Thomas worked as a jailer for Sheriff Ralph Witt. Two years later, the couple divorced. While Thomas remarried, he eventually divorced his second wife Ann Sutton. Before their divorce, Dan and Ann Thomas had two sons: Danny and Daryl. He met Reddick in the years after his divorce. At 69, he approached her to ask about trimming some trees in her yard. The trees were too close to the home for him to remove, but the poten-tial job blossomed into a beautiful companionship. “He was the love of my life,” Reddick said. “He called me ‘Doll baby.’ Those were the last two words he whispered. He knew I was there with him because I always put my hand on his head. The nurses said he did better when I was there.” Throughout his whole life, Thomas enjoyed hunt-ing, fishing, hog hunting, cake walks, fish frys, reunions, picnics and fam-ily gatherings. He could always be found in the same blue shirt — a light blue one in the summer time and a dark blue one in the winter. He just didn’t change, Reddick said. He always looked the same — even as he aged. “If I could tell anything about Mr. Dan, he loved everybody,” she said. “He just didn’t have any enemies. He was a kind, gentle soul.” THOMASContinued From 1A not only going to serve as a fundraiser, but also promot-ed the overall awareness of Special Olympics athletes. “The fundraising is an aspect that we’re going to participate in, law enforce-ment wide in Columbia County, to help assist the Special Olympic athletes try to get to the 2014 Summer Special Olympics Games in Orlando and even possibly to the nation-al games and international games later on this year,” he said. Strickland said there is no specific fundraising goal, but they want to get as much money as pos-sible for the local Special Olympians. “The more money we raise the more athletes we can support, along with their family members to get them to the games, pay their room and board and their other expenses,” he said. Strickland said law enforcement’s involvement with Special Olympics has taken place since the 1960s and torch run partnership came later. He said it’s important to impact the community and the Special Olympians are just one aspect of the com-munity. “These athletes are members of our society and often times they’re over-looked because of the type of disability they may have,” he said. “We are supporting every aspect of our commu-nity and they are a key part of the community.” The 2014 Special Olympics Florida Summer Games will take place May 16 at Disney’s ESPN Wild World of Sports Complex in Orlando. OLYMPICSContinued From 1Ahad taken it, the report said. When the deputy was finished speaking with the hom-eowner, Davis pulled him aside and said his girlfriend Holcomb may have pawned it, according to the report. When deputies visited The Money Man pawn shop some time later, they discovered LCPD had been called to the location after Davis and Holcomb were reported to have caused a disturbance in the parking lot, the report said. They also learned the coupled pawned the wrench for $20 dollars on Jan. 22, deputies said. A member of LCPD escorted Holcomb to their location and reported see-ing Davis walking along SR47, the report said. The investigating deputy went to his location and ordered Davis to the ground at gunpoint, saying Davis had a known history for carrying weapons, the report said. The deputy arrested Davis and found a short red straw filled with a white powder substance that later tested positive for cocaine and methamphetamine, the report said. As Holcomb was being booked into Columbia County Detention Facility, several pills fell from her pant leg, according to the report. Holcomb was booked on $21,000 bond and faces charges of larceny, stolen property deal-in and smug-gling contraband. Davis was booked on $36,000 bond and faces charges of larceny, stolen property deal-in, possession of a controlled substance, possession of cocaine and drug equipment possession. WRENCHContinued From 1A By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.com A Lake City woman was arrested Saturday on four different offenses, including reckless driving, after she allegedly fled from police officers, crashed her vehicle into a parked car and then refused to follow police commands. Donna Lynn Kovari, 53, 464 SW Precision Loop, faces charges of reck-less driving, driving under the influ-ence, fleeing an officer and resisting an officer without violence. As Lake City Police Department officer Ivan Useche was traveling north on U.S. 41, he noticed a silver Subaru station wagon driving carelessly, according to an arrest report. Useche watched as the station wagon wove in-and-out of traffic two times. After Useche activated his siren, the Subaru continued north to the red light at U.S. 41 and U.S. 90. At the red light, Useche exited his patrol car and approached the driv-er’s side door. He attempted to ask Kovari to pull into the Pink Magnolia building, but Kovari didn’t respond, the report said. Useche knocked on the window. When Kovari turned to look at Useche, he noticed her eyes were glassy, the report said. According to the report, he could also smell a strong odor of alcohol coming from inside the vehicle. Kovari then pressed the gas pedal — driving her car across all four lanes of U.S. 90 — while she still had a red light, the report said. Useche followed her northbound, eventually stopping on Columbia Avenue when he noticed the Subaru had crashed into a parked van. Useche ordered Kovari to exit her vehicle, but she refused. Between Useche and Officer Rebecca Miles, the two issued Kovari nine com-mands to show her hands but she refused each time. Two other LCPD officers arrived on the scene, and assisted in pulling Kovari from the vehicle. When asked why she was driving so recklessly, Kovari didn’t respond. She appeared confused as to why officers pulled her from her the vehicle. Miles discovered an opened beer in Kovari’s cupholder as Useche escorted Kovari to his patrol car, the report said. Despite repeated warnings, Kovari kicked the inside rear windows of the police vehicle. Eventually, she was placed in leg hobble restraints. According to the report, Kovari came within inches of crashing into a witness and her small child. While Useche quested the witnesses, Kovari continued to kick the win-dow. The leg restraints were tight-ened. Kovari then vomited in the back of the police vehicle. At the Columbia County Detention Facility, Kovari refused to provide a sample of her breath. She did however advise Useche she had been fighting with her husband for some time now. She told him she was depressed and had been drink-ing since 11:30 a.m., the report added. Kovari said she had driven from Gainesville to Lake City while impaired. She was booked into jail in lieu of a $4,000 bond.

T he New England Patriots’ Stephen Gostkowski has kicked 360 points after touch-down, or PATs, in a row. He hasn’t missed since 2006. But it’s not the kind of streak that has fans glued to their couches. It’s rare for any NFL kicker to miss an extra point. There were only five missed PATs (out of 1,267 tries) in this year’s regular season – and 18 in the last three years combined, out of more than 3,000 attempts. It works out to about 0.5 percent. Tacking on the extra point is so automatic, so anticlimactic, that fans tend to use that 45-second win-dow to fetch a beer, go to the bath-room or check the score on another channel. And that suited everyone just fine, if you want to know the truth, until NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell posed a question: If 99.5 percent of touchdowns are worth seven points, why bother with the kick? Goodell thinks the NFL could liven things up by eliminating the kick, scoring the touchdown as seven points and inviting teams to take a real risk: They could tack on another point by completing a conversion – but if it failed, officials would subtract a point. Or they could take the seven points and call in the kickoff unit. Give the guy credit: He gave football fans something to argue about now that the Brady vs. Manning thing has been settled. Our unof-ficial estimate is that 5 percent of fans like Goodell’s idea, 5 percent hate it and 90 percent think they have a better one. We have a better one ourselves, though it turns out a million other people have the same one, or close. Here it is: Keep the kick, but move it back. Way back. Far enough that maybe the kicker will make it and maybe he won’t. Spot the ball on, say, the 25-yard line. It’s the equivalent of moving the goal posts. To reward risk-taking, give teams the option of moving back even far-ther – let’s say to the 35 – to attempt a three-point kick. Or they could still try for the two-point conversion. Under this plan, a touchdown can be worth six, seven, eight or nine points. Suddenly, it makes sense to wait for the next commercial to fetch that beer. Moving the PAT back could be a real game-changer, like the three-point field goal in basketball. In the NBA, a daunting fourth-quarter def-icit can be erased quickly by a hot three-point shooter. But the best of those shooters miss more than 6 times out of 10. When a player fires from beyond the arc, fans hold their breath. Nobody does that when Steve Gostkowski trots onto the field. C ongressman Ted Yoho is the latest player in the ongoing drama over whether – and where – to erect a monument to Union soldiers at Olustee Battlefield. At least one high-level state official reached out to him for help defusing the controversy – prefera-bly before next month’s 150th anni-versary re-enactment and festival. Yoho’s role would be to get clearance to place the monument on federal, rather than state, property, as it appears both sides might (and I stress the word) be appeased by such an arrangement, depending on the particulars. Yoho, however, has been cautious to say the least. On three separate visits here by the congressman, we contacted his top aide to arrange a brief discus-sion of the matter. So far, no luck.Yoho is certainly accessible, and we are grateful for that. He’s always available to chat during his stops in Lake City, which are frequent. Just not about Olustee. The vetting process isn’t yet complete, we’re told. It’s wise they proceed with some caution. This is a political minefield on many levels. First, the story has gone national, and any kind of a misstep could bring ridicule on the big stage. A recent New York Times piece on Olustee made state Rep. Dennis Baxley look, frankly, a little foolish. But that’s partly because folks here think he’s just trying to leverage support for a state Senate run in 2016, and looks awfully ham-handed doing so. Then again, Ted Yoho probably doesn’t much care what the New York Times thinks, nor should he. Second, the question of federalism may arise during this dust-up. Yoho champions states’ rights with limited federal intrusion, so mightn’t it look odd for a U.S. Congressman to be meddling in what is clearly a matter of local concern? Well, not really.Should Yoho’s constituents seek out his assistance in addressing an especially vexing issue, that’s hardly one for the lawyers. That said, the 150th anniversary celebration is barely two weeks off, with no solution in sight. Maybe that’s for the best.Let it ride just a while longer.Getting down to the nitty-gritty so close to the big day could make the whole thing blow up in our faces. Nobody wants that.But come Monday, February 17, we’ll be back on the phone with our congressman, hoping for some answers.

Yoho’s role in the ‘Second Battle of Olustee’ Q Associated Press Q The Tampa Tribune P inellas state Sen. Jack Latvala perfectly describes the Legislature’s efforts to raise money for conservation by selling surplus land as a “disaster.” The Legislature’s idea was half-baked from the start, and the Department of Environmental Protection completely botched the effort, which law-makers should abandon this year. Instead, the Legislature should begin adequately funding Florida Forever, the program that buys and preserves important natural tracts. It is traditionally funded by a portion of the documentary stamp revenue from real-estate transactions — an appropriate revenue source for a program made necessary by the state’s rapid development. But lawmakers virtually abandoned Florida Forever during the recession and now refuse to restore its funding even as the economy rebounds and the state’s population growth soars, making the purchase of con-servation lands even more pressing. Last year lawmakers made a flimsy attempt to support Florida Forever, directing the DEP to sell unneed-ed tracts and use that revenue — as much as $50 mil-lion — for land acquisition. There is nothing wrong with DEP getting rid of parcels that have little environmental value. Sometimes landowners require such outlying properties to be included when the state is purchasing a large conser-vation tract. But this never should have never been considered a major funding source for Florida Forever. The DEP ended up proposing a number of important refuges for potential sale. Even after citizens’ outrage caused the agency to drop many sites, critical resourc-es remained on the for-sale list, including more than 2,000 acres in the Green Swamp, an essential regional water resource that is the source of four rivers, includ-ing the Hillsborough. DEP also included barrier islands and land along the Wekiwa Springs State Park that serves as a corridor for black bears. Latvala, a conservative Republican who understands the importance of stewardship, rightly scolded DEP officials at a recent state Senate subcommittee meeting when they told him the policy had generated no money and the for-sale list was still being prepared. As the News Service of Florida reported, Latvala said, “This is just a charade that we’re going to sell land and we’re going to use it to buy land and replace a program put in place by Gov. [Bob] Martinez in 1990 and kept going by Gov. [Jeb] Bush.” DEP officials say the final for-sale list should be ready by next month, but it’s impossible to have confi-dence in a process that has been so haphazard. Like Latvala, lawmakers should recognize their Florida Forever shortcut has been a disaster and resolve to support a scandal-free program that is sav-ing the best of Florida for future generations. And citizens can take matters into their own hands by backing the Water and Land Conservation Amendment to the state constitution, which would ensure Florida Forever received adequate funding and was free of such ill-considered legislative ploys.

Ive been inundated with your emails about what you should do or take to prevent falling ill. The single most impor tant thing you can do to prevent colds and flu, believe it or not, is to wash your hands well and often. Now, those of us in the health care professions were taught to use hot, soapy water and scrub for at least 15 seconds. Thats what you should do. But how should you dry your hands? Never, ever use the blow dryers found in restrooms. Through the years sev eral scientific studies have shown that drying ones hands with a blow dryer as opposed to paper tow els actually increases the number of germs on your hands. I know the studies were all done by counting bacteria rather than virus es, and fungus, but germs all hang together. Misery loves company as they say. Studies in the past have shown a four-fold increase in the number on peoples hands after using a blow dryer. Shocking! One recent study, done in London, found that people who used a blow dryer to dry their hands had two to three times as many bacteria on their hands as they did before washing them. Not only that, many of the bacteria were patho genicthat is, they were the kind of bacteria that can cause disease. The key problem is that the vents and bottoms of dryers in public bath rooms get contaminated with regular use. The dry ers are kept in a warm, moist placeprecisely the kind of environment that bacteria, fungus and viruses need to thrive. The dryers never get hot enough to kill the germs, just warm enough to help them multiply and thrive. In fact, the studies also found that the warm air from dryers actually helps disperse the pathogens all around the room. Im boy cotting public restrooms this week, between the toi lets flushing germs all over the place, and the hand dryers blowing, I think Ill just hold it in, LOL. Based on the science, its actually better to leave the restroom with wet hands than use the blow dryer. Carry your own paper towels or just shake your hands off. And if I dont already sound too neurotic, dont touch the door handle on the way out. Remember, thats touched by all the people who didnt bother to wash their hands after chang ing a tampon, going #2 or whatever. Im banishing the thoughts from my head immediately. Keep a small bottle of hand sanitizer in your purse or pocket. Resist touching your nose and mouth. And power up your immune system. DEAR PHARMACIST Suzy Cohen jostery@comcast.net Suzy Cohen is a pharmacist in Gainesville. Associated Press SCHAUMBURG, Ill. Cancer Treatment Centers of America says it plans to move its corporate headquar ters from suburban Chicago to Florida. The company and Florida Gov. Rick Scott put out a news release Tuesday. They say Cancer Centers made the decision to leave Schaumburg for Boca Raton, Fla., based on Floridas favorable business climate. The company also cited quality of life issues. Cancer Centers says it will have 225 employees at its new headquarters. That will include executives moving from Illinois but it isnt clear how many other employees will move. The date of the move was not specified. Cancer Centers thanked Florida officials for their help. But the release didnt specify what kinds of incen tives were offered. The company operates a network of five hospitals around the country including one in Chicago. Cancer Centers moving HQ from Illinois to Florida Cruise ship returning to US after illness outbreak By DAVID McFADDEN Associated Press KINGSTON, Jamaica A Royal Caribbean cruise ship headed back to its home port in the U.S. on Monday after hundreds of passengers and crew mem bers fell ill with vomiting and diarrhea during what was supposed to be a 10-day getaway in the sun. The Miami-based company announced Sunday evening that it was cutting short the Explorer of the Seas jaunt in the Caribbean a few hours after officials from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention boarded the ship during its U.S. Virgin Islands port call to investigate the illness. According to the CDC, 577 out of 3,050 passengers reported being ill during the voyage that left Bayonne, New Jersey, last Tuesday. Thats nearly 19 percent of the vacationers. Forty-nine crew members also got sick. Royal Caribbeans medical team said the symptoms were consistent with the com mon and highly contagious norovirus. It is rarely fatal, but the CDC says it can be seri ous, especially for youngsters and older adults. The virus spreads quickly in closed quarters through contaminated food or liquids, contaminated surfaces, and direct contact with an infected person. CDC spokeswoman Bernadette Burden said tests would have to confirm what caused the illness outbreak on the 15-deck ship. Five samples were shipped to the U.S. health agencys lab Sunday. We wont know for a couple of days what the pathogen is. Cruise ships are unique. It can be difficult to identify a spe cific source, she said in a Monday email. She said there had been no fatalities and no one was removed from the ship. An Explorer of the Seas passenger named Arnee Dodd fell ill aboard the ship last week and was quarantined like the other sick people. In a Sunday tweet to The Associated Press, the Connecticut woman said: We are all better, quarantine is over and ship has been sanitized every day. Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. said Sunday evening that new reports of ill ness have decreased day-over-day, and many guests are again up and about. Nevertheless, the disruptions caused by the early wave of illness means that we were unable to deliver the vacation our guests were expecting. It said a full sanitization program would be carried out after the Explorer of the Seas reached its home port Wednesday. The CDC team of two epidemiologists and one environmental health officer are aboard as the ship sails to New Jersey. Aubrey Manzo of the online cruise reviews guide Cruise Critic said all the passengers are traveling back to the U.S. on the Explorer of the Seas. They do not have the option of getting off the ship prior to its arrival in Bayonne, she said in an email. Royal Caribbean said it was taking sev eral steps to compensate passengers for the shortened trip and the inconvenience. It also sought to assure customers sched uled for the ships next voyage that all possible measures will have been taken to prevent further problems. COURTESY Nearly one-fifth of the 3,050 passengers fell ill on the Royal Caribbean cruise to Jamaica. Miami-based company is cutting the trip short. Farmers get probation in fatal listeria outbreak By DAN ELLIOTT Associated Press DENVER Two Colorado cantaloupe farmers who pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a deadly liste ria outbreak in 2011, the deadliest case of foodborne ill ness in the nation in a quarter century, were sentenced Tuesday to five years of probation and six months of home detention. A federal magistrate in also ordered brothers Eric and Ryan Jensen to each pay $150,000 in restitution and perform 100 hours of community service.

DEAR ABBY: I have been with my husband for 19 years. I offered his plumbing services to a mar-ried couple I work with. While he was fixing the problem, he became friendly with their adult daughter. She was lonely and I knew the family, so I wasn’t con-cerned. Their relationship developed into something more and we separated. He ended their friendship and we reconciled. Things were going great, but she continued to contact him. He has suddenly decid-ed he can’t live without her friendship and has decided to divorce me in order to con-tinue it with her. He swears it’s platonic, but something he can’t live without. He hopes we can “still be friends”! My question is how to move on from this. I have to see her enabling parents every day at work, and all of this happened under their roof. I feel betrayed on every level, especially by my husband, who was my best friend. Every aspect of my life, including my job, has been affected. Have you any advice for moving past this without all of the anger I carry? I don’t want to leave my job. It pays well and the commute is easy. But every time I see either one of the parents, I want to cry and scream. P.S. My husband and I still live together as “roommates,” as this is all very recent, and we haven’t fig-ured out our living arrange-ments yet. — WRONGED DEAR WRONGED: I do not for one minute believe that your husband’s rela-tionship with this woman is strictly platonic, and neither should you. Consult a lawyer now, while you and your husband are still “roommates.” Make sure he doesn’t hide any assets because, after 19 years of marriage, you should be entitled to a healthy share of them. I agree that you have been wronged, but for now hang onto your temper. “Best friends” don’t treat each other the way you have been treated. It may take the help of a religious advis-er or licensed mental health professional for you to let go of your anger. DEAR ABBY: My friend of five years, “Gigi,” has a heart of gold. However, we were raised differently. Gigi comes into my home when I’m not here and borrows whatever she needs without telling me. And whether I’m here or not, she feels free to go through everything -personal documents, my drawers and cabinets. Nothing is safe from her fin-gers or her eyes. I have tolerated her behavior because when I tried talking to her about it, she became upset and started crying, which made her hus-band irate. I’m now dating a man who values his privacy, and my friend’s behavior bothers him. He’s friendly with Gigi’s husband and deals with my friend only out of respect for her husband. How can I get her to leave things alone without her having another meltdown? I don’t want to lose a friend, but my boyfriend has a valid point that I happen to agree wivwth. — INVADED IN TEXAS DEAR INVADED: How does this woman get into your home when you’re not there? Does she have a key? If she does, ask for it back or change your locks. And when you know Gigi is coming over, place anything you would prefer this nosy woman not peruse out of sight or under lock and key. That way, you can reclaim your privacy without being directly confrontational. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Refrain from making changes without proper doc-umentation or the go-ahead from whatever source neces-sary. Keep both your home and professional life free from complications. Follow the path that is presented, adding minor refinements as you push ahead. ++TAURUS (April 20May 20): Show enthusiasm and you will draw attention and advance. Deal with individuals directly and be precise about what you expect, want and are willing to give in return. A per-sonal relationship will take a favorable turn due to your honesty and straightforward approach. +++++GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Present a plan and see what kind of interest you receive. Don’t be disheart-ened by someone conserva-tive. Focus on people look-ing for something fresh and you will be given an unusual opportunity. Make sure your idea is feasible before you share your plans. +++CANCER (June 21July 22): Put more effort into your relationship with others. Whether you are doing business or making a personal connection, you must ensure that you are giving and receiving as much as whoever else is involved. Compassion and understanding will help seal a deal. +++LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Problems at home will develop if someone takes advantage of your gener-osity and good will. Step outside whatever position you find yourself in and you will get a clear picture of the situation and what you must do to make it work. +++VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get out and have some fun. Show that you have a sense of humor and that you are just as capable of change and adaption as the next person. Romance will bright-en your love life and secure your future. +++++LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Be careful when it comes to a matter of trust. Keep your secrets well hid-den and guard against any-one trying to dig into your personal affairs. Your intui-tive intelligence will not lead you astray. Proceed with caution. ++SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Talk is cheap and with the information you gather, you will be able to make a substantial move forward. Add a little charm, mystery and intrigue into the mix, and you will cap-ture interest and increase your popularity amongst your peers. ++++SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A bad transaction will have a ripple affect. Do your best to make up for any loss you have incurred by promoting something unique that you have developed. A change looks positive if you stick to what you do best. +++CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Avoid any sort of confrontation that can stand between you and financial goals. Anger is a waste of time. Put your energy where it counts and pursue your goals industriously. A personal partnership must not be allowed to cost you. +++AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): What you do for others will not go unnoticed. Ask questions, but don’t be too eager to divulge person-al information. Moderation will be necessary if you want to reach your goals without interference. Focus on getting things accom-plished. +++PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Look past any obstacle you face. If you can see the big picture, you will be able to achieve your goals. Don’t let negativity deter you from thinking big and embracing your dreams. Romance will brighten your day and your love life. ++++CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Katharine Ross, 74; Tom Selleck, 69;Cristina Saralegui, 66; Charlie Wilson, 61; Oprah Winfrey, 60; Greg Louganis, 54; Heather Graham, 44; Paul Ryan, 44; Sara Gilbert, 39; Jonny Lang, 33; Adam Lambert, 32; Isabel Lucas, 29.
