WASHINGTON (AP) The economy might not be on the brink of another reces sion after all. Consumers, who drive most economic growth, spent more on cars, fur niture, electronics and other goods in July and more in May and June than previously thought. That burst of activity is encouraging because it shows many Americans were willing to spend de spite high unemployment, scant pay raises, steep gas prices and diminished wealth. If it keeps up, the econ omy might rebound after growing at an annual rate of just 0.8 percent in the first half of 2011. Thats a big if. Whether Americans remain willing to spend freely despite the stock markets wild swings will determine whether the second half of the year is any better than the first. Their 401(k) retirement accounts have shrunk. A sustained stockmarket decline tends to slow consumer spend ing because it reduces wealth, especially for up per-income Americans. The richest 10 percent of Americans own 80 percent of stocks. And the richest 20 percent drive about 40 percent of consumer spending, analysts say. That loss of wealth may help explain a report Fri day that consumer senti ment hit a 31-year low in August. The Thomson Reuters/ University of Michigans survey, completed early this week, showed that market turmoil and the political strife over rais ing the federal debt ceil ing rattled consumers. The fact that retail sales held up over the last few months ... is a positive economic development, said Joseph LaVorgna, chief U.S. economist at Deutsche Bank. However, the true test will be to see if consumer activity held up in the face of recent fi nancial market gyrations and slumping economic confidence. So the August data will be of much great er significance. The Dow finished Fri day with a gain of 125.71 points, or 1.1 percent, to close at 11,269.02. That means the turbulent week in the end dragged the market down just 1.5 percent after it had plum meted as much as 6.3 percent. The Dow is still down about 11 percent since July 21. Worries about the mar kets and the economy already seem to have caused some shoppers to pull back. The Interna tional Council of Shopping Centers-Goldman Sachs index, which tracks reve nue at stores open at least a year, has shown two straight weekly declines. Claire Sanders Swift, a Washington media con sultant, said that after the stock market plunged, she sent her baby sitter home early and called her broker. I keep trying to re mind myself weve been through this rodeo be fore, she said early this week. The fear is making me not want to spend. Its a pivotal moment for the nations retailers. Theyre in the midst of back-to-school season and are planning for Christ mas sales. Together, the two shop ping seasons represent up to half their annual revenue. Retailers are concerned that the weak economy and stock market turmoil could cause shoppers to retreat as they did when the financial crisis hit in 2008. Back then, spending plunged so much that some retailers slashed prices up to 80 percent just to draw shoppers to stores. Others sold jewelry and clothing to liquida tors for pennies on the dollar. Some went out of business. This time, retailers seem better prepared. Theyve kept inventories lean to avoid being stuck with huge piles of markeddown products. Jeff Landis of Chicagobased Montopoli Custom Clothiers said because business has been quiet the past few weeks, hes decided to delay stocking up on fabric for custom suits for fall. And Geoff Stern, own er of Toy Professor, a toy store in Summit, N.J., said sales this week were down about 25 percent from a typical August week. Until late this week, a batch of poor economic data and a gloomy outlook from the Federal Reserve set off fears that the econo my might be about to slide into another recession. That threat appears to have diminished. But its hardly gone away. Still overhanging the financial markets and the U.S. economy is concern that Europes debt crisis will spread through the U.S. financial system. In vestors worry that Italy and Spain, two of Europes biggest economies, might be unable to pay all their debts. If they couldnt, big Eu ropean banks that hold huge amounts of govern ment debt would be at risk of failure. That possibility, in turn, could harm many large U.S. banks with close rela tionships with their Euro pean counterparts.

nomic figures in recent days have at least given economists cause for hope. Layoffs are down. Retail sales are up. Gas prices have fallen. Employers added 117,000 jobs last month. That isnt enough to significantly lower the unemployment rate, now at 9.1 percent. But it was more than expected and was an improvement af ter two dismal months for hiring. Retail sales rose 0.5 percent last month, the Commerce Department said Friday. It was the best show ing since March. The gov ernment also revised up its estimates of sales for the previous two months. Even after excluding gas station sales, which were boosted by a rise in gas prices, sales rose 0.3 per cent in July. It was the second en couraging signal for the economy in as many days. On Thursday, the Dow rocketed up 423 points af ter the government said the number of people ap plying for unemployment benefits dropped below 400,000 for the first time since April. Consumers may feel bet ter later this month as gas prices drop further, econo mists said. That would help increase their condence. Gas prices have fallen 10 cents to $3.60 a gallon in the past week down from nearly $4 a gallon in early May. In addition, stock prices have rebounded slightly since the consumer sen timent survey was com pleted early this week, said Paul Dales, an economist at Capital Economics. Condence is very un likely to stay this low for long, Dales said. Most large retailers are remaining optimistic. Macys Inc., Kohls Inc. and Nordstrom Inc. have boost ed their annual prot out looks. Yet theyre also con cerned about the risk that conditions will worsen. J.C. Penney said Friday that it expects its earnings this quarter to trail Wall Street estimates. The tumultuous last 10 days or so havent given our core customer, the middle income family, any reason to be more condent, said CEO Myron E. Ullman III. The retail sales report is the governments rst read on consumer spending for the July-September quar ter. In June, consumers cut spending for the rst time in 20 months, a troubling sign. Demand for cars has been low this year. But part of the reason is that dealers have had trouble stocking popular models because of parts shortages related to Japans earthquake in March. Those disruptions are easing, which could boost auto sales in August. And that would con rm the optimism sparked by the retail-sales report Friday. At this point, a mild report is a good report, said Chris Christopher, an economist at IHS Global Insight.

AP Analysis AMES, Iowa (AP) The biggest rumblings in the Republican presidential campaign are coming from Austin, Texas 1,000 miles from the leadoff caucus state where front-runner Mitt Romney and seven opponents squared off ahead of an important test vote this weekend. Texas Gov. Rick Perry sent word that he would join the race, casting a shadow over the debate Thursday night and threatening to upend the race. Back in Iowa, Romney emerged unscathed with his leader-of-the-pack status intact after two feisty hours; his two Minnesota rivals Rep. Michele Bachmann and former Gov. Tim Pawlenty sparred repeat-edly as each sought advantage ahead of Saturdays Iowa straw poll. Overall, the dynamics of the campaign did not change with a single debate. And they may not change when Saturdays straw poll results are announced. But the race could well change in the coming days as Perry dives in. The Texan may pose the biggest threat yet to Romney. Conservatives who make up the core of the GOP primary base view Romney skeptically on cultural is-sues, and he hasnt been able to establish himself as the heavy favorite for the nomination even though hes spent months promoting his background as a businessman and claiming that he alone has the know-how to create jobs to pull the country out of a period of high unemployment, rampant foreclosures and tumultuous nancial markets. Democrats are already taking aim at Perry. His record will get scrutinized, David Axelrod, senior political adviser to President Barack Obama, said Friday. Axelrod suggested Perry was taking too much credit for Texas relatively healthy economy and job creation. Hes been the beneciary down there of the boom in oil prices and increased military spending because of the wars, Axelrod said on CBS Early Show. I dont think many people would attribute it to the lead-ership of the governor down there. Perry could benet from GOP suspicion about Romney. The Republican establishment has a lackluster view of Romneys candidacy, leading deep-pocketed donors across the country to look for more candidates to draft into the race who could bridge the historical tension between the partys social and economic wings. They couldnt convince former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie repeatedly refused, too. And Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels declined overtures as well. Enter Perry. He is credible on issues social conservatives care about and sent a strong message to evangelicals last weekend by hosting a national prayer rally in Houston that drew roughly 30,000 Christians. He also has overseen a period of job growth in his state, making Texas one of the few states in the country that have posted economic gains and giving him the opportunity to challenge Romneys pitch as the jobs candidate. Iowa, with its strong base of evangelical voters, may be tailormade for Perry. He was making his rst trip to the state Sunday, a day after formally announcing his candidacy in South Carolina and New Hampshire just as Iowa straw poll votes are being cast. A caucus campaign by the Texan could force Romney to retool his strategy of downplaying the state which he lost during his rst run in 2008 after investing heavily in favor of friendlier ground elsewhere. Perry hasnt shown up in the rodeo yet, but it looks like a RomneyPerry race, Republican strategist Jim Dyke said. That may be a bit premature. Perry is entering the race months after other candidates and Romney has a multimillion-dollar head start in fundraising. Also, there still are at least ve months before Iowas precinct caucuses that kick off the winter-tosummer GOP nomination season, and there still are several unknowns, including whether former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin ends up running. She was making a last-minute visit to the Iowa State Fair for Friday, reviving talk of a potential candidacy on the eve of the straw poll at Iowa State University. The straw poll could winnow the GOP eld and indicate which candidate has the strongest get-out-the-vote operation. This is turning out to be the most consequential week yet in the 2012 Republican presidential nomination ght but not because of anything that happened at the debate. Romney largely kept his criticism on Obama and the incumbent Democrats handling of the economy, an issue that has blossomed anew as the GOPs top campaign concern in the wake of a tumultuous week on Wall Street and continuing high unemployment. I understand how the economy works, Romney said during the debate, noting the lessons of both suc-cesses and failures as a venture capital rm chief executive ofcer. Our president doesnt understand how to lead or grow an economy. He wouldnt bite when asked to comment on his rivals economic positions. And Romneys rivals gave him a pass on a potentially problematic comment he made earlier in the day at the Iowa State Fair when confronted by hecklers, who suggested corporations should pay more taxes. That prompted Romney to respond, corporations are people. Democrats quickly jumped on the exchange, though his GOP rivals did not. Those who tried to knock him down a rung didnt even nick him. Struggling to nd traction, Pawlenty poked at Romney on several issues, including how much land he owns as well as his support for a Massachusetts health care bill similar to the national one Obama signed into law. But Pawlenty ended up getting pulled into a family ght with Bachmann, who has outshone him in Iowa despite his 18 months of laying groundwork for a campaign. Its an undisputable fact that her record of accomplishment and results has been nonexistent, Pawlenty said, adding: Shes got a record of misstating and making false statements. Bachmann, who has eclipsed Pawlenty since entering the race, quickly responded with a list of what she called Pawlentys liberal policies when he was Minnesotas governor, including his support for legislation to curb industrial emissions and his backing of an individual health care mandate in Minnesota, both unpopular positions with GOP activists. You said the era of small government is over, she told Pawlenty. That sounds a lot like Barack Obama if you ask me. Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman making his rst debate appearance also tried to claim the space as the economicfocused candidate by championing his states job gains during his tenure and noting his time as an executive in his familys chemical company. But Obamas former ambassador to China also defended his work under the Democratic president as well as his support for civil unions both issues that are problematic in a GOP primary campaign. Lesser-known candidates tussled for position, including former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, businessman Herman Cain and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Perry was absent from the stage. But not for long. Biggest political news coming out of Austin, Texas, from Gov. Perry Republican presidential candidate former Massachusetts Gov.

Scroll to the bottom of any story online to leave a comment. SPORTS Also ONLINE When a staff writer for DOTmedBUSINESS NEWS, a health care industry maga-zine, contacted Brenda Blitch, patient and public relations director at our own Doctors Memorial Hospital, about featuring DMH in the July 2011 issue, Mrs. Blitch was quick to seize the opportunity. With assistance from several of the tal-ented staff at DMH, a two page colorful spread about our hospital dominates that issue. The publication has a circulation of about 30,000, and an online readership of over 20,000 international readers. Some of the facts included with the spread tell that Doctors Memorial Hospital was established in 1957 and the current administrator is JoAnn Baker, a Bonifay native. The 20 private-bed facility is one of 1,324 rural critical access hospitals in the U. S. serving nearly 54 million patients every year. DMH has 150 employees and includes womens health screenings, in-patient and out-patient rehabilitation, laparoscopic and general surgery, and clinical laboratory. A new facility was completed in 2008 replacing the 50-year-old building and dou-bling its square footage. A medical ofce space was completed in 2009 and pro-vides a place for specialists from larger hospitals to treat patients in the surround-ing rural areas at no cost to the visiting doctors. In October 2010, the hospital completed the installation and implementation of a Health Information System which fully certies DMH to meet the American Recovery and Reinvestment Acts meaningful use requirement. Our facility has now met qualications for AR&R Act funding. Some noteworthy achievements of DMH: The Gold Seal of Approval by the Joint Commission, accreditation by the Joint Commission in Pathology and Clinical Laboratory; identication by Thomason Healthcare as one of the top 20 most prof-itable critical access hospitals in the nations(as reported in Modern Healthcare, November 2007). We are duly proud of our local hospital and congratulate the staff on this recognition. Many of us, however, are aware that funding is always a critical need as much of the services generate no income for the hospital. Community hospitals depend largely on donors to provide equipment necessary for high-level patient care. Our DMH Foundation and The Hospital Auxiliary are constantly seeking to raise funds to help purchase items not included in the budget. Since the Auxiliary was re-instated when the new building was occupied, they have generated some $30,000 through the gift shop and other fund raising activities. Computers for the medical building, a microscope for the lab, physical therapy equipment, scanners for medical records are just some of the items purchased with these funds. The DMH Foundation has also provided additional funding since its organization last year through its golf tournament, gun and Christmas wreath rafes.. We have also committed to pay for a T V spot to air regularly promoting our hospital. Both the website, www. DoctorsMemorial.com and the TV spot were created by talented hospital staff members at a very minimal cost. The next big fundraiser being planned by the DMH Foundation is a Haunted Hospital for seven nights during October using the old Doctors Memorial. We hope to draw people from all the surrounding area for a frightful, fun-lled experience that you dont have to travel miles to see. Also, just in time for hunting season, we are rafing a Mossberg 500 12-gauge pump action shotgun, which we are purchasing at cost from Curtis Porter, local gun shop owner. With funds from these endeavors we hope to help purchase a telemetry monitoring system for patient rooms. Membership in the foundation is another ongoing way the public can support our outstanding local hospital. Annual dues are $25 per person and carry several perks. (1) 10 percent discount on non-prescription items at Medicine Shoppe and at Padgett Drugs plus a 10 percent discount on prescriptions paid for in cash at Padgetts. (2) 10 percent discount on purchases at Bettyes Boutique at the hospital and 10 percent discount on purchases at Hardees and at Movie and Gift Depot; (3) employee discount at lunch Monday through Friday in the hospital cafeteria from 11 a.m.1 p.m. (4) corporate discount rate at Best Western Inn and Suites in Bonifay.

Assistant District Attorney James Coursey said Monday in Pueblo that the case should be tried in nearby Huerfano County where the chase ended. Twenty-nine-year-old Lee Grace Dougherty, 26year-old Dylan Dougherty Stanley and 21-year-old Ryan Edward Dougherty are wanted for a crime spree in Florida and Georgia. Theyre being held in Pueblo on charges of attempted rst-degree murder and assault in Pueblo and Huerfano counties because ofcers from both were involved in the chase that led to their arrest. Also on Monday, an attorney for Ryan Dougherty said he needs medical attention because he might have a concussion. Ryan and Dylan Dougherty Stanley appeared for the court hearing, but their sister did not. AP Police are pictured at the scene where three fugitive siblings wanted in Florida and Georgia crashed their automobile, left, and were arrested near Walsenburg, Colo., on Wednesday, Aug. 10. Florida siblings charges delayed By S. Brady Calhoun Florida Freedom Newspapers PARKER For weeks Nancy Rob inson wondered what happened to her 16-year-old son. On Sunday she learned the truth: He had been killed and his body dumped in the woods near her Oak shore Drive home, police said. He was a good kid, Robinson said during a tear-filled interview. He was a baby. Robinson gave up her son, Jacob Robert Jake Hendershot, just af ter he was born. He lived with his grandparents in Indiana and then Tennessee before deciding to move in with Robinson June 22. I was so happy to see him, Rob inson said. I hugged him. Robinson said she warned her son about life in her neighborhood. I tried and tried to explain to him that its different down here than in Indiana, she said. I tried to explain, You got to be careful who you associate with. Hendershot loved it here, Rob inson said. There was stability and he could play his guitar and listen to Pantera or Jason Aldean. His fa vorite song was Aldeans Red Dirt Anthem, a song about easy street on mud tires. In the short time they were to gether, the family Hendershot, Robinson and Robinsons boyfriend would enjoy meals with one an other and take long walks together, Robinson said. Hendershot met a girl, and thats where the trouble began, Robinson said. He went missing July 14. Detective Aaron Wilson of the Parker Police Department always knew something was wrong with the disappearance, like it was more than a runaway. He had nowhere to go and no means to go somewhere else, Wil son said during a news conference Sunday afternoon. Wilson and other investigators conducted a thorough investigation, at one time dispatch ing divers to search the area around the DuPont Bridge, but they could not find Hendershot. Then on Friday investigators with the Panama City Police De partment called Wilson to tell him that someone with whom they were dealing knew something about his missing persons case. That information led Wilson and investigators from the Bay County Sheriffs Office to Joel Curtis Mill sap, 25, and 17-year-old William Henry Chase. Chase, a Panama City resident, and his girlfriend, the same one who had been Hender shots girlfriend, led Wilson to Hen dershots body, according to Parker police. Chase initially said Hendershot was killed by Millsap, a Parker resi dent he referred to as Crow. How ever, according to an arrest affida vit, the two men, and possibly oth ers, lured Hendershot to Millsaps home, where they attacked and killed him. Millsap lived next door to Robinson and Hendershot. Chase said Hendershot raped his girlfriend, and he wanted to beat him up to make Hendershot leave her alone, according to an arrest affidavit. Chase admitted to strik ing Hendershot and choking Hen dershot until Millsap said he was deceased. Chase said Millsap at tempted to cut Hendershots throat with a knife. Millsap also confessed, accord ing to the arrest affidavit. The two men then disrobed the body and dumped it in the woods near the DuPont Bridge, the docu ment states. The body was so well hidden that you could have been standing next to it and not known it was there, Wil son and Chief Charles Sweatt said. They declined to release further de tails about the location of the body because they did not want to com promise the investigation. After they hid the body, Millsap and Chase used a stolen boat to dump Hendershots clothes and their own clothes into East Bay, the affidavit states. Robinson said Chase was lying about what happened with Hender shot and the girlfriend. Jacob didnt have it in him, she said. He wasnt that kind of kid. She added that she had seen those boys around and had asked them if they knew where her son was. They answered her like every thing was just perfect. If we see him, well give you a call, she recalled them saying. During the news conference, Wilson said the girl had said she was in a consensual sexual relation ship with Hendershot, but then said that not every encounter had been consensual. Wilson then threw his hands in the air in an apparent sign of exasperation. Millsap and Chase have each been charged with an open count of murder.

OUTD OO RS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to email@example.com A Section The rumors are ying as to whether there will be a fall snapper season, and if so how long it will last. The people in charge are considering adding on a certain amount of sh that were not caught last year due to the oil situation. The wishful thinking crowd is saying we should have a large amount of days and they should be tacked on every weekend until the allotted amounts of snapper are caught. Another crowd believes an extended season would be closer to a few days, or maybe just one weekend. Most people I know would be happy with any extension, no matter how long or short. Whats hot: Live bait and speckled trout are the name of the game right now. With these afternoon rains the weather seems to be cooling and you dont run the risk of a sun stroke. It is almost pleasant to sh late afternoons. We have been going about 4 p.m. and catching a livewell full of menhaden and chumming the specks to the top on a regular basis. This can occur just about any place you can catch menhaden. Near the bridge in Lynn Haven I dont believe you could stick another menhaden in the waters of North Bay. This would be a good place to catch your bait, and if you have a favorite speckled trout spot in this area I would recommend you go there and chum. Take a net full and squeeze them a touch, not so much to kill them, just enough it addles them and throw a handful out behind the boat. Keep this up until trout start breaking the top of the water trying to run them down. When this happens you are in business. I would free line them hooked in the back so they stay on top. Whats not: If beach shing is your thing, you might be disappointed with the grass and muddy water near the shore. The grass probably will be with us until September. That is usually the time it takes to leave permanently. One day near the end of the month you will come to the beach and the water will be as clear as a bell.

By Stan Kirkland Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission After nine years and looking at thousands of white-tailed deer in Florida, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reports the state is still chronic wasting disease (CWD)-free. CWD is a progressive fatal neurological disease affecting white-tailed deer, mule deer, black-tail deer, moose and elk. Scientists say the disease was rst diagnosed among captive mule deer in Colorado in 1967. Infected animals tend to be lethargic and lose weight and coordination. CWD is now found in 19 states and two Canadian provinces. They include Kansas, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Illinois, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, New York, West Virginia, Michigan, Virginia, Missouri, North Dakota and Maryland, and Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada. The critical thing is prevention and early detection, said Cory Morea, FWC statewide deer coordinator. We would like to obtain more samples of deer from areas adjacent to captive deer facilities, because the most likely way for CWD to be introduced into Florida is through the importation of deer from other states. Florida bans the importation of live deer, unless the animals come from a herd that has been certied CWD-free for ve or more years. Additionally, hunters who travel to CWD states and harvest animals are only allowed to return with deboned meat, clean skullcaps, antlers, nished taxidermy mounts and tanned hides. In 2010, FWC tested 910 deer, and 5,519 since CWD monitoring and surveillance began in 2002. Staff monitoring efforts involve looking at hunter-killed deer and any deer reported as sickly. As the 2011-12 hunting season approaches, the FWC is again asking the publics help. Deer hunters are in the woods every day and we urge them to call us if they see a sick or emaciated deer or a deer that dies of unknown causes, Morea said. Reports of suspect animals can be made by calling 866-CWD-WATCH (293-9282). Morea said staff will quickly follow up on the reports and, if appropriate, take necessary tissue samples. There is no evidence that CWD poses a health risk to humans. However, public health ofcials advise against eating any unhealthy deer or one that died of unknown causes.

SP O RT S www.bonifaynow.com A Section WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) Marcos Ambrose wont have to answer all those questions anymore. The snake-bitten Ambrose beat Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch on a two-lap dash to the checkered ag Monday to win the rain-delayed Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen In ternational. It was his rst victory in 105 starts in NASCARs top series and atoned for a slip-up a year ago on the road course at Sonoma, when he stalled his car under caution while leading with six laps to go and nished sixth. This is almost surreal, Am brose said in his No. 9 Ford for Rich ard Petty Motorsports after crossing the nish line. It was Fords rst victory on a road course since Geoff Bodine won here in 1996. Its a dream come true, Am brose said. Ive tried for 2 years. Busch led the eld to the green ag. But Keselowski, racing with a broken left ankle and trying for his second straight win and third of the season, dove from third to the lead entering the rst turn with Ambrose also streaking past Busch. Ambrose bumped Keselowski in the chicane after zooming through the high-speed esses, then passed him for the lead. The race ended with a caution as David Reutimann and David Ragan crashed violently entering the second turn, with Reutimanns car bouncing hard off a guardrail and sliding upside down across the track. Busch nished third, and Martin Truex Jr. and Joey Logano rounded out the top ve. Kevin Harvick was sixth, followed by Juan Pablo Montoya, AJ All mendinger, Jeff Burton and Jimmie Johnson. Kurt Busch, who won at Sonoma in June, crashed early and nished 38th. He wasnt alone: Denny Hamlin, who entered the day 11th in points, also crashed and nished 36th; ve-time Watkins Glen winner Tony Stewart, running up front all race, was taken out on the nal lap in the chicane and nished 27th; and Paul Menard, also in the hunt for a spot in the Chase for the Cup, brought out the race-chang ing caution when he crashed on the 86th lap and nished 32nd. Ambrose was on a conservative strategy all day despite threatening weather the race was postponed by rain Sunday and more was in the forecast. He passed Truex for third on turn one of lap 73 and moved up to the bumper of Keselowski. Ambrose outbraked Keselowski going into the 90-degree rst turn on lap 76 and set his sights on Busch. Ambrose moved within three car lengths on lap 80 as the two encoun tered lapped trafc and closed to Buschs back bumper in the chicane with eight laps to go. Plenty of time to get him. Go get him, said Ambroses crew chief, Todd Parrott. Ambrose got the chance he want ed when Menard, running 14th, blew out a tire and crashed on lap 86, bringing out the nal caution. That set up the frantic dash to the nish of what turned into a 92lap race and spoiled the day for Kyle Busch, who won the pole and had led much of the race. He was in the catbird seat for 18 straight laps when Menard crashed. Hamlin brought out the third caution of the race on lap 67 when he zoomed at high speed straight through the rst turn, a 90-degree right-hander, and slammed head-on into the tire barrier that borders the paved runout area. Hamlin, who started at the rear of the eld after a crash in qualify ing and was all the way up to 11th, was not injured. But the stoppage jumbled the running order as Jeff Gordon gave up the lead to pit for the nal time, giving Kyle Busch the lead again with Keselowski alongside him in the front row and Ambrose and Montoya in the third row. I had no brakes, Hamlin said. I was trying to do everything I could. Just nothing you can do. MIAMI (AP) An at torney says NCAA inves tigators are visiting the University of Miami cam pus looking into claims that more than a dozen former or current play ers received gifts and services from convicted Ponzi schemer Nevin Shapiro. His attorney, Maria Elena Perez, says Shap iro has told the NCAA he provided players with the use of a yacht and other favors. Shapiro and Perez have been talking with the NCAA about the matter for a couple of months, and she said investigators were on campus Monday. University ofcials didnt immediately re spond to requests for comment. The 42-year-old Shap iro was sentenced in June by a New Jersey federal judge to 20 years in prison for his role in an invest ment fraud scheme. LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) Three former FIFA executive commit tee members banned in a World Cup bidding scandal will have their appeals heard no sooner than October, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said Monday. World sports highest court said legal submis sions have pushed back cases involving Amos Ad amu, Amadou Diakite and Ahongalu Fusimalohi. FIFAs ethics commit tee banned all three, plus three other ofcials, last November after British newspaper The Sunday Times alleged vote-trad ing in the 2018 and 2022 World Cup contests. Their appeals to FIFA were heard in February before they were able to launch appeals at CAS. Adamu, a former Ni geria sports minister, is challenging a three-year ban for bribery that cost him his seat on FIFAs ruling body, and his World Cup votes. Diakite, from Mali, lost his position as a mem ber of the FIFA referees committee when he got a three-year ban that was reduced to two on appeal. Fusimalohi also got a three-year sanction cut to two, but lost his job as Tonga Football Associa tion chief executive. CAS will be scrutiniz ing FIFAs code of ethics for the rst time when its appeal panels hear the cases. The same code was used by FIFA to ban Mo hamed bin Hammam from football for life last month, after the former presidential candidate was judged to have ar ranged bribes for voters in the Caribbean. Bin Hammam has pledged to challenge that verdict at FIFAs appeal committee and then CAS.

Posada wants to play, but will someone hire him? KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Jorge Posa da would like to play another season; hes just not sure someone will give him the chance. The Yankees longtime catcherturned-designated hitter has strug gled most of the year, even causing a stir by taking himself out of the lineup at one point. He had recently lost his job as the regular DH, but Posada made a spot start Saturday at home against Tampa Bay and hit a grand slam while driving in six runs. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he planned to start Posada on Sunday, but the series nale against the Rays was rained out. So he put Posada in the eighth spot in the order Monday night against Kansas City, where he went 1 for 2 with a walk in the Yan kees 7-4 victory. The week that he kind of had off he continued to do his work, and his cage work, and thats what it is, Gi rardi said, referring to the six days between when he benched Posada and his game against Tampa Bay. Jorge has pride in his perfor mance and wants to be a big contribu tor, Girardi said. Posada is batting .237 with 10 hom ers and 37 RBIs, though most of the damage to those numbers came dur ing an early season slump. Hes bat ting over .300 in 30 starts since the rst week of June, despite a 1-for-13 slump that resulted in Girardi giving him an extended rest. Girardi wanted to use the DH spot to nd at-bats for Eric Chavez and give veterans like Derek Jeter some time off. Third baseman Alex Rodri guez could also need some extra time as designated hitter when he returns from knee surgery, which the Yankees are tentatively planning for the series opener Thursday at Minnesota. That means less playing time for Posada, who turns 40 today. You put yourself in the situation, and hopefully you try to do everything possible to keep in the lineup, and I have to look at it like that now, Posa da said. I dont know. Its just one of those things. Posada, a career .274 hitter, is in the nal year of a $52.4 million, fouryear contract. Its tough for me to tell you ex actly what Im going to do, to tell you the truth, Posada said, when asked about playing next season. I really wont know until the season is over and I get home and see what happens in the offseason. Ill work out and stuff. I havent really thought about it, but I still think that I will (play) right now. Posada said he isnt sure hell be back with the Yankees, where hes played his entire career, or even what position he might play. The ve-time All-Star said he could still catch if given the chance to work behind the plate in spring training, and he can also play rst base in addition to des ignated hitter. The great athletes love challeng es, Girardi said, and sometimes you get a challenge in a sense like that, guys want to show you. Jorge wants to play every day, and I respect that, I love that. Whatever it takes for him to be productive, Ill take it, because it allows me to do some things.
A8 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, August 17, 2011 EBays gold bonanza follows stock market trouble SAN FRANCISCO (AP) For gold sellers on eBay, the recent stock market tur moil has been a boon for business. Gold and silver sales on eBay had already been ris ing steadily over the past several years so much so that eBay Inc. created a special area in May to make it easier for buyers to nd sellers. Now, activity on that part of the site, the Bullion Center, is intensifying as consumers unnerved by the economic uncertainty ock to gold in hopes it will be a stable investment. When people are com ing down to the question Do they want to have cash in the bank or gold in their hands? the answer is theyd rather have gold or silver, said Jacob Chandler, CEO of Great Southern Coins, the largest seller of pre cious metals on eBay. The stock market just ended one of its most volatile weeks in years, prompted in part by a downgrade in the nations credit rating and fears of another recession. Through most of last week, the average selling price increased for gold bullion bars or coins stamped with their weight and level of purity. According to the most recent data available from eBay, sales of 1-ounce gold American Eagle coins and 1-ounce gold Pamp Suisse bars rose steadily from Aug. 5 to last Wednesday, before dipping slightly Thursday. On Aug. 5, when Stan dard & Poors lowered the nations credit rating, American Eagle coins were selling for an average of $1,800 among eBays fea tured sellers.

Gov. Rick Scott said Monday he believes that stronger leg islation and regulation, along with more money for police, is helping in 2011. Florida has been a leading source for the illicit purchase of prescription drugs, with ad dicts and dealers from across the Southeast flocking to pain clinics. According to data released Monday, there were 2,710 deaths in Florida last year caused by prescription drugs, compared to 2,488 in 2009. Scott says the effort to stem the scourge is a personal one for him because he has a broth er who has abused drugs for many years. Nation
Washington, Holmes at a glance Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser B P A GE 1 Section Wednesday, AUGUS T 17 2011 Special to Extra Nearly 30 youngsters from Holmes and Washington counties gathered at Ponce de Leon Springs State Park for an educational day camp, Forest Alive Eco Camp. Under a canopy of old oaks and pines, 4-H agents Natalie Bomann and Julie Dillard opened the camp by introducing the volunteers and agencies who came together to teach the day camp: Mike Mathis and Daniel Young, senior foresters for Florida Forest Services; Aaron Miller, Ponce De Leon Springs State Park Ranger; Joe Vanderwerff, state lands forester; and Scott Sweeney, Falling Waters State Park service specialist. The rst day began with Park Ranger Miller giving youth the history of the park, starting with the landowners who owned the property before selling it to the state in the 1970s and ending with an explanation on how springs are formed. Youth then rotated between two stations. Station one, conducted by Sweeney, taught youth about different types of snakes in Florida and which ones might be found living in the state park. Station two, led by Mathis, took youth on a nature walk focusing on the identication of trees, recognizing poison ivy and seeing how natural erosion of the river bed can change the path of the river or creek forming a new bed. Youth could smell the aroma of honey as they watched wild honeybees living in a hollow tree busily working. Day one ended with a picnic under the pavilions. Washington County 4-H Agent Julie Dillard opened day two of the camp by reading the classic story of Smokey Bear. This story was a perfect preface into the days lessons, which began with how rangers ght wildres and all the necessary equipment used. Fireghting employees with the Florida Forest Service who aided in the presentation of the reghting equipment were Donnie Sellers, forest area supervisor; Brian Goddin, mitigation specialist; Kelly Snaidman, senior ranger; Shae Shiver, senior ranger; Ranger Don Showalter; and Ranger Zac Yates. After a question/answer period, the youth were able to try out some of the equipment, and all took turns on the re engine, sounding the alarms and using the re shelter. Next, youth were again divided into two groups for station rotations. Station one took the 4-Hers to an area of Ponce De Leon Springs State Park where they were able to see results of previously conducted prescribed burns. Youth learned the difference between a wildre and a prescribed burn and the benets prescribed burning has on the forest. Station two taught basic use of compass navigation and tree measurement. The day ended with youth enjoying a picnic in the park and a dip in the creek. More information about 4-H programs is available by contacting Natalie Bomann, Holmes County 4-H agent, at 547-1108 or email@example.com, or Julie Dillard, Washington County 4-H agent, at 638-6180 or juliepd@u. edu, (TDD, 1-800-955-8771).

Wednesday, August 17, 2011 (AP) When you need to jam a lot of avor into a simple dish, reach for an umami bomb. That is, foods that are jammed with the fth taste savory (to go along with bitter, sweet, salty and sour). In a small package, these foods deliver seriously big and satisfying avor. Things like Parmesan cheese, anchovies and steak. As far as leaving me satised, savory beats out sweet every time. Its one of the reasons Im such a fan of tapenade, a simple puree of olives, anchovies, garlic, capers, olive oil and thyme. Its salty, savory and pungently delicious. It can be spread on baked sh, used as a dip or spread for crusty bread, or do duty as a sandwich condiment. And dont let the anchovies spook you. Youll never know they are there, but the avor isnt the same without them. Using the meat from a rotisserie chicken lends a great hefty, meaty texture to this wrap. But for convenience, deli-sliced turkey breast is a ne substitute.

Wednesday, August 17, 2011 AP On some days, the pilots with Great Lakes Air lines re up a twin-engine Beechcraft 1900 at the Ely, Nev., airport and depart for Las Vegas without a single passenger on board. And the federal government pays them to do it. Federal statistics re viewed by The Associated Press show that in 2010, just 227 passengers ew out of Ely while the airline got $1.8 million in subsidies. The travelers paid $70 to $90 for a one-way ticket. The cost to taxpayers for each ticket: $4,107. Ely is one of 153 rural communities where airlines get subsidies through the $200 million Essential Air Service program, and one of 13 that critics say should be eliminated from it. Some call the spending a boondoggle, but others see it as a critical nancial lifeline to ensure economic stability in rural areas. Steve Smith, executive di rector of the Jackson, Tenn., airport authority, also has seen empty or near empty ights take off, since the air lines get paid per ight, not per passenger. The subsidy amounted to $244 for each of the 2,514 people who ew out of Smiths airport last year, though few if any pas sengers knew that. They y the empty plane so they can still get the mon ey, Smith said. The ght over the subsi dies was a key sticking point that led to the recent politi cal standoff in Washington that temporarily shut down the Federal Aviation Admin istration, putting thousands out of work for nearly two weeks. There were other disputes as well, such as a GOP proposal that would make it more difcult for air line workers to unionize. Republicans got the EAS cuts they were looking for in last weeks agreement but with a major caveat. Subsidies to Ely, Jackson and 11 other communities are set to end, but Trans portation Secretary Ray LaHood has the authority to continue them if he decides its necessary. Rep. David McKinley, a Republican who came into ofce with tea party sup port, sided on the issue with Democratic Sen. Jay Rocke feller, a fellow West Virginian who has used his position as chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transporta tion to support the current funding. Flights out of Morgan town, W.Va., were among those targeted by other Re publicans. A $1 million subsi dy amounted to about $52 for each of Morgantowns more than 10,000 passengers last year. McKinley describes him self as a small government, free-market focused owner of a small business, but said airports that receive subsidies serve as crucial engines of job creation for many small towns and rural areas. The EAS was created to ensure service on less prof itable routes to remote com munities when airlines were deregulated in 1978. A spokesman for the De partment of Transportation did not respond to a request for comment about the pro gram, which has grown in scope and cost. In 1999, the EAS served 89 communi ties 68 in the continental U.S., one in Hawaii and 20 in Alaska. Today, it serves 45 in Alaska and 108 elsewhere, and over the last 10 years, the budget quadrupled from $50 million to $200 million. The subsidies go to about a dozen airlines, but in 2010, almost one-third of the en tire budget $67.8 million went to Great Lakes, which is based in Cheyenne, Wyo. The company did not respond to requests for comment. Ely is an extreme case. The House Transportation and Infrastructure Commit tee said it is one of just three cities in the program that have subsidies higher than $1,000 per passenger. The others are Glendive, Mont., and Alamogordo, N.M. Republicans targeted ights out of other cities such as Morgantown be cause they are relatively close to major airports. Mike Coster, Elys air port manager, said the loca tion between Las Vegas and Salt Lake City is the most remote airport in the conti nental U.S. We have no bus service here of any kind, no Grey hound or similar company, Coster said. Its a small town. Severin Borenstein, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley who helped design the EAS pro gram, said Congress origi nally intended for the pro gram to end after 10 years. He said the subsidies are a big problem in place like Ely, which averages one or two passengers per ight. I can see the argument for making some of them permanent, but the stan dards should be higher, Bo renstein said. The real story with this program nationwide is that nobody is watching it, said Smith, the Tennessee airport ofcial. If there is a problem with airports and airlines not carrying enough passengers and not doing what they said they would do, its because once the contract is issued, its like nobody ever asked a question about it again. Contracts are awarded through a competitive bid process and generally last two years. The program has plenty of defenders who point out the cost is tiny compared with other transportation subsidies. According to a 2009 report from the Pew Charitable Trusts, highways got 76 per cent of subsidies, mass tran sit 16 percent, aviation 6 per cent and rail and maritime 3 percent. Pew estimates that transportation subsidies in 2008 came to about $45 bil lion, or $367 for every house hold in America. Faye Malarkey Black, a vice president for the Re gional Airline Association, said she believes few fed eral programs accomplish as much for $200 million as EAS does. They call it essential for a reason, she said. She said her industry group supports common sense adjustments for eligibility, but added that rural com munities already struggle to attract and keep doctors and other professionals. If you take away air service, who wants to live in those communities? she said. Chadd Williams, a com puter science professor at Pacic University, was y ing back to Oregon from Morgantown after visiting family. He said a ticket to Morgantown typically costs him $75 to $100 more than one to Pittsburgh, about 75 miles away, but this time it cost about the same. Its very convenient to have this place, Williams said. He said his family sometimes drives to Pitts burgh to pick him up, but thats a stress on them, and its difcult to get up to Pittsburgh on time with all the road construction. So it would be terrible to have this go away. Flower shop owner Jim Coombs has been to the Morgantown airport seven times so far this summer to shuttle high school foreign exchange students to their host families. Hell be there seven more times to send them home. The nearest internation al airport is about an hour and a halfs drive north in Pittsburgh, but traveling there means time wasted in trafc and in Interstate 79 construction zones, not to mention the cost of gas and pricey parking versus free. Coombs says the fact that the northern West Virginia city has its own airport is a selling point for people con sidering jobs there. I think the people in Washington are the types that just think if its not in a big area, its not worth any thing. They dont know what its like here. They dont know what goes on here, Coombs said. In Alamogordo, of cials said number-crunch ing doesnt explain the full value of access to air transportation. Saddled between south ern New Mexicos Sacra mento Mountains and the desolate Tularosa Valley, residents dont have any op tions for air travel other than twice daily, federally subsi dized round-trip ights, air port manager Parker Brad ley said. Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 Statue of Liberty to close for a year NEW YORK (AP) The Statue of Liberty will close for a year at the end of October as it undergoes a $27.25 million renovation that will make the interior safer and more accessible, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced Aug. 10. The renovations are limited to the monument. Liberty Island will remain open, and the statue itself will be mostly unobstruct ed from view, ofcials said in a statement. Tegan Firth, a spokeswoman for Statue Cruises, which on an average Saturday during the summer ferries about 18,000 people to Liberty Island, said the renovation wont have a signi cant impact on visitation. The entire experience of vis iting these national landmarks of the United States remains abso lutely the same, she said. The National Park Service, which manages the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island, said it will close the monument Oct. 28, after the 125th anniversary of its dedication. It will be closed the following day, and workers from Joseph A. Natoli Construction Corp., of Pine Brook, N.J., will install code-compliant stairways and upgrade electrical and re sup pression systems, elevators and bathrooms. The National Parks Service told The Associated Press in Au gust 2010 that it would close the statues crown to upgrade the stairwells and improve safety at Lady Liberty. One reason, the service said at the time, was that the newest re codes mandate escape routes that would allow the statue to be evacuated within two hours, but the current staircases on either side of the pedestal do not meet the standards. The statue was closed after the Sept. 11 terror attacks for se curity precautions, but the base reopened in 2004 after a $20 mil lion security upgrade. The ob servation deck at the top of the crown was reopened on July 4, 2009. The National Parks Service controls the number of visitors to the crown, saying about 240 peo ple visit each day. About 3.5 mil lion people visit the monument every year. The statue, a gift from France, was built in the 1880s. Federal government paying planes to y empty AP A ground crew works on a ight at the Morgantown Municipal Airport in Morgantown, W.Va., on Aug. 9. The ght over subsidies to rural air carriers was a key sticking point that led to the recent political standoff in Washington that temporarily shut down the Federal Aviation Administration, putting thousands out of work. AP The Statue of Liberty is seen in New York harbor. The statue will close for a year at the end of October as it undergoes a $27.25 million renovation.

Page B4 Wednesday, August 17, 2011 The rst things you will notice as you walk into my ofce are all the Eagles. You see there are Eagle statuettes from two inches high to three feet tall. There are Eagle cups, Eagle plates, Eagle lamps and pictures of Eagles all around the room. One of these pictures stands 3 feet by 5 feet and screams to be noticed. I even wear a tie that has Eagles all over it. Its not that I like any particular sports team or just the American Eagle Symbol. You see, all these Eagles are gifts from family and friends, because I claimed Isaiah 40:31 as my life verse early in my ministry. You probably dont know it, but Ill confess, I was one of those hyperactive children that could not pay attention and got into a lot of trouble when I was in school. As an adult, I have not changed much. Soon after I became a young adult, I could not understand why all adults were not hyperactive, and honestly I still question it at times. Im only considered hyperactive because I like to stay busy and see things done and completed while moving to the next project. But I have found out that most of the world is not like that, and usually doesnt care for hyperactive people, like me. It seems everyone wants to slow us go-getters down. So in my frustration, as a young adult working in management at a secular job and pastoring my rst church, the Lord gave me Isaiah 40:31. No, God was not telling me to stop or even to slow down, but to set a pace that did not get ahead of what He wanted to teach me and to allow Him to change others to be like Him, not me. As I began to claim Isaiah 40:31 and apply it to my life, I found so much truth in it. I discovered you can y as an Eagle when youre not just working for the Lord but working with Him and His church. I hope you see what Im trying to say. Alone, it is difcult to even get off the ground, almost impossible, but with the help of others whom He has called, and as He strengthens us, all things are possible. Eagles do not nd it hard to y, because they dont depend on themselves as much as they trust in the wind, for without the wind beneath their wings, they would not y. This concept of ying like an Eagle does not only apply toward projects around the church and the commission the Lord has given the church to reach others. It also applies to our daily walk. You see, the problems in America today are that the average American is not hyperactive but hyper-selsh. We see it, we want it, we get it, without considering the real cost. Not realizing that debt is a bondage that might allow us to have what we think we desire, while keeping us from having that which we really need. Getting that which we desire by going into debt is what destroys homes, and is destroying this great nation. The Lord did not put Romans 13:8 in the Bible to be cute, but to give us a principle that we should live by. If you dont know Romans 13:8, I will share it with you, because it gives us a command to Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fullled the law, (NKJV). This principle is very simple, the house you dwell in might be very beautiful, but in most beautiful houses a home does not exist because there is no time for one another, and without the unied support that God designed for us to have in a home, the home cannot y, neither can you. Do you nd yourself tired, not able to rest? Is it because, though you are part of a busy world, in reality you are alone? Are you working for things you desire, thinking they will satisfy your lust and bring you happiness? How long has it been since you soared like an Eagle and truly enjoyed the pleasures that God gave us freely, the joy of His salvation, and stopped and said, Thank you Lord? No, you might not need to stop dead in your tracks, but you might need to reevaluate your priorities and begin to move at a pace in your life to which the One, who will help you soar, is at. But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint, (Isaiah 40:31 KJV).

Gods promise: Well y like an eagle FROM THE HEART Tim Hall You could tell by looking at her that she was a sweet, Christian lady. And as long as I could remember, she sat alone in the back pew every service (which meant Sunday morning, Sunday evening and Wednesday evening). Though we never bothered the lady to her face, Im thankful to say, she was the subject of much derision in the youth group. Finally, just before leaving for college, I mentioned the lady to my mother. Turns out this sweet, Christian lady had a mental disorder that made her deathly afraid to be in public. Yet, three times each week she went to church, facing down her panic. I think of that lady very often indeed. To my shame, most of the time I think of her when there is something Id rather do than attend church service. As you already know, Im not a recluse. So it is shameful when I dont want to go to church. Forsake not the assembling of yourself together. Truth is, we need each other: For encouragement, for learning the Word and, frankly, for plain old Christian fun. There is nothing like it, and you never leave a church service without a blessing. Never. That is why I join David in saying, I was glad when they said to me, Come, let us go into the House of the Lord. And I owe that sense of joy in large part to the sweet, Christian lady who three times a week had to overcome fear and dread to come to church. In my minds eye I still see her sitting uncomfortably on that last pew. You see, God uses even silent messages to provide a lifetime of encouragement. No doubt this recluse felt she was able to do nothing for the cause. But her effort Im sure was an example to many in addition to the teenager who needed a silent, life-changing talking to.

(AP) Lob bying is gearing up ahead of the General Assembly ses sion next month when law makers could consider put ting a constitutional amend ment banning gay marriage on next years ballot. Campaigns for and against the proposed con stitutional ban are already including petitions, pulpit messages, rallies, billboards and phone banks, The News & Observer of Raleigh re ported Monday. The gay rights group Equality North Carolina on Sunday set up at the North Carolina Gay and Lesbian Film Festival in Durham with stacks of postcards for patrons to sign urging law makers to withhold their support for the proposed ban. The group hopes to have 50,000 to deliver to leg islators by next month. Just because two guys want to be together or two girls want to be together, what effect does that have on me? asked theatergoer Joseph Sawyers, 31, of Ra leigh. It doesnt bother me at all. It has nothing to do with me. On the other side of the issue, the executive direc tor of the Christian Action League has spent days in face-to-face lobbying and vote counting. Theres a lot of ground work to be laid, the Rev. Mark Creech said. Not only do you have to have all the votes that are needed, in the long run, you need to be in the best position so you can win North Carolina. Its already illegal for same-sex couples to marry in North Carolina. The pro posal would let voters decide whether to amend the state constitution to state that marriage between a man and a woman is the only domestic valid, legal union recognized in the state. Thirty states already have constitutional lan guage dening marriage. Minnesota lawmakers this year agreed to place an amendment dening mar riage on the ballot for 2012. Three-fths of all mem bers of the House and Sen ate would have to approve putting the question before voters in November 2012. Republicans hope a consti tutional amendment on gay marriage would increase turnout of conservative vot ers in 2012 and boost their chances against Democrat ic Gov. Beverly Perdue and President Barack Obama. Obama narrowly won North Carolinas electoral votes in 2008 and signaled he aims to contest the moderate Southern state again. Democrats decided to hold their convention in Charlotte. An Elon University poll in February found that 37 percent of the states resi dents support or strongly support a marriage amend ment, down from 43 percent in March 2009. A December poll of registered voters by the Civitas Institute, a Ra leigh think tank, found that two-thirds supported an amendment. With Republicans in con trol of the General Assem bly for the rst time in a cen tury, religious conservatives see this year and next as an opportunity to advance a gay marriage amendment sidetracked for years. Our organization is pushing to say to our leg islature, We want you to vote on it, Said Ron Baity, president of the conserva tive Christian organization Return America. North Carolina Christians seek gay marriage ban

He also recommends that the 12 members of Congress charged with devising a deficitcutting plan leave rates for 99.7 percent of taxpayers unchanged. My friends and I have been coddled long enough by a billionaire-friendly Congress, Buffett wrote. Its time for our government to get serious about shared sacrifice. Buffett noted that the mega-rich pay income taxes at a rate of 15 percent on most investment income but practically nothing in payroll taxes. The middle class, meanwhile, typically falls into the 15 percent and 25 percent income tax brackets and is hit with heavy payroll taxes. He said Washington legislators feel compelled to protect us, much as if we were spotted owls or some other endangered species. Buffett said he knows many of the mega-rich well, and most wouldnt mind paying more in taxes, especially when so many fellow citizens are suffering. He also said he has yet to see anyone shy away from investments because of tax rates on potential gains, even when rates were much higher in the mid-1970s, 1980s and 1990s. People invest to make money, and potential taxes have never scared them off, he said. Buffett calls for more taxes on mega-rich My friends and I have been coddled long enough by a billionaire-friendly Congress. Its time for our government to get serious about shared sacrice.
