it will add at least 70,000 new
jobs for Americans. Working out

the upcoming Thanksgiving
"One can of food, one item,
it doesn't matter," said Julie
Chance, the drive's coordinator
and the human resource direc-

you just contribute, I'd hope it'd
make you feel satisfied inside for

Donations can be dropped off
at either the clerks office or the

The food will be distributed
through- Chipola Family Minis-
tries around the holiday time.

tions from the public of other
groups who distribute food to
families in need. Depending on
the amount of food donated,
she may split donations among
Most non-perishable items

Members of the safety community are
reminding Jackson County residents to
be safe duringHalloween.
Although most people think of candy
tampering when thinking about poi-
soning around Halloween, glow sticks
are a more prevalent issue, said Dr.
Sollee, the assistant director of the For-
ida/USVI Poison Information Center
in-Jacksonville. Children can chew or
break the sticks, releasing the painful
and irritating chemicals inside.
Candy, although less likely to be an
issue, should still be checked for tam-
pering. Any torn or rewrapped candy
should be-thrown out.
A good idea, Dr.Sollee said, is to make
sure children have a good meal before
trick-or-treating to ensure they don't
eat candy that hasn't been checked.
Before wearing costume makeup, put
some of it on a small area of skin to test
if the person has an allergic reaction to
Fire safety is another aspect of Hal-
loween to be aware of. Candles are one
of the top causes for fires, a fact that in-
creases around Halloween said Jackson
County Fire Marshal Chuck Sawyer.
Always keep an eye on candles and
blow them out when the festivities are
over, Sawyer said. People should avoid
billowing costumes. Dry decorations,
like corn stalks or crepe paper should
be kept out of reach of candles.

For Cain, 9 + 9+9 = 0
By The Tampa Tribune
H erman Cain's 9-9-9 tax plan helped him win
Florida's Sept. 24 straw poll in the race for the
Republican presidential nomination, but the
enthusiasm will fade as details and implications are
If the plan turns out to be as'simple and pure as b~usi-
nessman Cain makes it appear, it's hard to see why a
majority of taxpayers would like it..It would impose a 9
percent sales tax, apparently on everything. It would tax
businesses at 9 percent on everything they buy, appar-
ently including labor. It would set income taxes at a flat
9 percent, with no deductions for children or medical
Cain originally said his plan woild cut the total tax
bill for almost everyone, even low-income workers,
while raising the same amount of revenue as the exist-
ing system. Polls show enthusiasm for the lower taxes
Cain promises, but an early analysis shows he would
increase taxes for a family of four with an income of
$50,000 by more than 60 percent. That's for most fami-
lies, not all.
Taxes would be eliminated on investment income,
so if a family's $50,000 income was spun off from, say,
$1 million in investments, the family would pay no
income taxes. Cain will have a hard time explaining
why he would want nothing from people with money in
the bank and give no breaks to parents with a kid in the
A new national sales tax would be the most explosive
bomb in Cain's tax arsenal.The way it is initially de-
scribed, everything would be taxed, including services.
That would be in addition to all state and county sales
The tax here in Hillsborough County would increase
from 7 percent to 16 percent on many goods, and
would increase from zero to 9 percent for all the things
not taxed in Florida, such as groceries. Cain says low-
income workers could save by purchasing used items,
which wouldn't be taxed. You can't get a used doctor's
exam, a used loaf of bread, a used insurance policy
or a used haircut. As for taxing services, perhaps Cain
doesn't know about Florida's disastrous attempt some
years back to expand the state sales tax to include ser-
vices and advertising. That was before Google and the
Internet. Enough said.
Cain's justification for not taxing interest and
dividends is that they have already been taxed at the
corporate level. He hates double taxation, he says, but
it doesn't seem to bother him that folks who have saved
money from tax-paid earnings would now be taxed
another 9 percent when they spend it.'
Another form of double taxation would hit Workers'
pay. Cain's Web site says his plan taxes companies on
gross earnings minus costs of purchases. Conservative
critics note that under that wording, a company would
pay a 9 percent tax on wages, and the worker would pay
another 9 percent as personal income tax.
Of course such complications are nothing compared
to the trickiness of the current tax law. Cain is right that
taxes need to be simplified and made more transpar-
ent and understandable. A better tax system would
enhance economic growth and generate more income
Merchants want to know why sharply higher sales
taxes wouldn't raise prices and hurt sales, especially for
products targeting low- and mid-income consumers.
Advocates of low taxes want to know what would
keep Congress from raising the rates of both sales taxes
and income taxes. Local officials wonder what would
happen to the interest rate on municipal bonds when
all bonds are tax-free. Homebuilders want to know
whether taxing building materials would raise the cost
of houses, and landlords want to know whether taxing
rent would lower their profits.
Parents with a big family want to know why they
should pay the same amount of taxes as a childless
couple with similar earned income. Workers with either
a big or small family want to know why their pay would
be heavily taxed while unearned income would not be
taxed at all.
Voters need to reassess whether Cain is seriously try-
ing to win the White House or just trying to sell books.

Lesson for Perry: Think before you run
BY BYRON YORK
SAThat's wrong with Rick
F Perry? How did the suc-
Scessful, well-liked, long-
term governor of one of America's
largest states enter the Republican
presidential primary race with
great fanfare, zoom to the top of '
the polls, and then slide almost as
quickly back into the pack?
Blaming the Texas governor's
problems on a lackluster debating
style as Perry himself has done
after a number of poor perfor-
mances answers only part of the
question..Yes, debates are particu-,
larly important this campaign sea-
son. But debates are more than just
style and popularity contests. They
reveal deeper things about can-
didates; voters watching debates
can learn not only how a candi-
date handles tough questions but
whether he is really, truly prepared
to run for the White House.
Early in Perry's candidacy, there
was a spate of stories suggesting
he's not smart enough to be presi-
dent. They weren't subtle; one was
headlined "Is Rick Perry Dumb?"
But even Perry's critics could look
at those stories and say: Here is a
man who has successfully governed
a large and complex state, presided
over prosperity and growth, dealt
with the political challenges that
go with it all, and won re-election
repeatedly. Successful governor-
ships don't just happen by accident;
Perry's results in Texas show he is a
smart, competent executive.
But the debates have revealed a
different problem. The Rick Perry
who has taken the stage in four
Republican debates so far is a man
who, for all his governing success in
Texas, appears not to have thought
enough about whyhe wants to be
president of the United States and
what he would do if he achieved his
goal. When critics gently say that
Perry's presentations have been
"light on details," they're really
saying Perry doesn't seem to have
thought things through.
More than anything else, a lot of
thinking should precede a run for
president. There's no time to think
about much of anything once the
campaign begins, and there's no
way a candidate can collect and
organize a lifetime of experiences
into a coherent approach to nation-.
al issues once he's flying from stop
to stop. A candidate has to have
done his thinking long before he
hits the road or steps on a debate
Think back to a different example
from a different time. In 2005,
President George W Bush nomi-
nated White House counsel Harriet
Miers to the Supreme Court. Miers
was a perfectly fine White House
counsel, but she clearly had not
spent a.lifetime doing the kind of
legal thinking that prepares one
for the highest court. The White
House assured doubters that Miers
planned to study really, really hard
in preparation for her confirmation
SBut it doesn't work that way.
Justices John Roberts and Samuel
Alito didn't have to cram at the last
minute for their hearings. Each
had a lifetime of experience and
thinking at the highest levels of the
law, and their task was to organize
the knowledge they already had to
prepare for confirmation question-
ing. The important thing was, the
knowledge was there. The thinking
had already been done. Miers, on
the other hand, wasn't prepared
and finally dropped out.
There's no doubt that former
Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney
has thought a long, long time about
being president. Romney can tell
you, at any level of generality or
detail you want, why he is running
and what he would do if he won. He
adjusts to new issues and questions
by building on all the preparation
he's already done.
For Romney, debate preparation
involves taking all the things he has
already thoughtthrough and find-
ing the most effective way to pres-
ent them in one-minute answers.
For Perry, debate preparation is
trying to learn new stuff about
national issues that he should have
been thinking about a long time
ago. It's often pointed out that since
Perry entered the Republican-race
late, on Aug. 13, he had little time to
build a campaign organization and
hone a campaign pitch. That's true,
but the fact is, if Perry wanted to
be president, he should have been
thinking seriously about the sub-
stance of national issues not just
fundraising and state party chair-
men years before he declared his
Now Perry is paying the price for
that lack of preparation. And if that,
in fact, is the real problem behind
his poor debate performances,
then he's not going to improve as a
candidate in the next few weeks. It's
far too late for that.
When high achievers shortchanged, we all suffer
BY BILL MAXWELL-
St. Petersburg Times
or nearly two decades, public
school educators have been
trying to close, or at least nar-
row, the race- and income-based
achievement gaps in graduation
rates and test scores. The move-
ment, which became a mandate
with passage of the No Child
Left Behind Act during President
George W. Bush's first term, has
become an obsession.
For several years, supporters
of the act, along with some early
detractors, did not question the
perceived benefits of NCLB. But
that easy acceptance is changing.
The first serious doubts about
the measure's effectiveness came
after a 2008 report by the Thomas
B. Fordham Institute, a Washing-
ton think tank, which showed that
from 2000 to 2007, progress for
students who were the highest
achievers on the National Assess-
ment of Educational Progress did
not increase, while progress for the
lowest-achieving students greatly
Now, Fordham has reaffirmed the
2008 findings and introduced more
critical statistics in a new study,
"Do High Flyers Maintain Their
Altitude?" This study found that the
federally mandated effort to make
schools more accountable for in-
creasing low-performing students'
achievement may be harming-the
Researchers tracked the scores of
approximately 82,000 students on
the Measure of Academic Progress.
They found that many high-per-
forming students lose ground from
the elementary grades to middle
school and from middle school to
Here is the question for U.S.
educators: Is focusing on getting all
students to be proficient on reading
and math tests having unintended
negative consequences? It is a
tough question for many Ameri-
cans to answer, because it goes to
the core of our concept of equality.
Still, the mounting empirical
evidence cannot be ignored.
"Is helping kids at the bottom
improve hurting kids at the top?"
Michael Petrilli said in an inter-
view with Education Week. He is
the executive vice president of the
Fordham Institute and was a U.S.
Education Department official
when NCLB was written. "Let's
be honest about the trade-offs. It
doesn't make you a bad person or a
racist.... We've been making good
progress for kids at the bottom and
for poor children and minority kids.
It just can't be the only thing that
we do." Petrilli and others seriottsly
question, for example, the effec-
tiveness of the campaign to get as
many students as possible, even if
they have so-so academic records
and questionable abilities, to take
Advanced Placement courses. In
Hillsborough County, for exam-
ple, the school district has been
criticized for aggressively steering
so many average students into Ad-
vanced Placement courses regard-
less of whether they are prepared
for college-level curriculum.
Who benefits when such students
take these courses? Do high-achiev-
ing students suffer when teachers
are forced to devote too much time
to the lowest achievers?
Evidence shows that to relent-
lessly devote excessive time and
resources to helping students at
the bottom, many districts are
scrapping programs such as after-
school science labs for Advanced
.Placement classes. High-achieving
students lose out, and many excel-
lent teachers are being let go or are
being reassigned to courses to help
Is this a desirable trade-off? At
the national level, Education Week
reports, Congress has eliminated
$7.5 million for the Jacob K. Javits
Gifted and Talented Program that
serves gifted and high-achieving
students. The cut was made to free
up money to finance programs for
I support efforts to help our
lowest achievers, but like Petrilli
and others, I believe that we have
tipped the scales and are ill-serving
our highest achievers. As Ameri-
cans who believe in equality
we have a philosophical difficul-
ty in grouping students by ability.
Too many of us cannot accept the
reality that high-achieving students
should be permitted to go as high
as they can when we divvy up fed-
eral and state funds for education.
In truth, it is a moral imperative
for us to do as much for these stu-
dents as we do for those at the bot-
tom. This is not elitism or insensi-
tivity. It is a simple calculation that
if our highest-achieving children
are shortchanged, we all suffer. We
will lose our competitive edge in
the world, and we may needlessly
diminish our quality of life.

Prisoner rehabilitation bill to get revamped
The Associated Press
that would shorten the sentenc-
es of low-level nonviolent pris-
oners who complete drug and
other rehabilitation programs
will be revamped, the sponsor
said Tuesday in response to Flor-
ida's sheriff's and other critics.
The' House Criminal Justice
Subcommittee approved the
measure (HB 177) on a 12-3 vote.
Several representatives who
voted for it, though, said they
would drop their support later in
the legislative process unless it's
made more restrictive.
The legislation has drawn sup-
port from such fiscally conserva-
tive organizations as Associated
Industries of Florida and Florida
TaxWatch, as well as public de-
fenders and the Florida Alcohol
and Drug Abuse Association.
They say it would cut prison
costs and make inmates less
likely to commit new crimes af-
ter their release.
"This I believe is a fiscally re-
sponsible, smart justice, cau-
tious and safe and compassion-
ate bill that's going to turn lives
around, reunite families and
reduce recidivism," said Rep. Ari
Porth, a Coral Springs Democrat
who is sponsoring the bill.
Porth, though, said he's will-
ing to revise it. That may satisfy
some critics but not all.
"We think it's unjust to thou-
sands and thousands of crime
victims out there to let some-
body out, to give a prisoner an
easy go," said Frank Messer-
smith, a former lawmaker and
now a lobbyist for the Florida
Sheriffs Association. "Don't let
people escape punishment they
The bill as filed would let non-
violent inmates sentenced to
third-degree felonies, which
have maximum penalties of five
years, participate in the re-entry
program after serving at least
half of their terms.
But they'd first have to be
screened and get recommenda-
tions from the Department of
Corrections before asking judges
to reduce their sentences. Pros-
ecutors could file objections be-
fore the judges rule.
They'd be released on proba-
tion after successfully complet-
ing drug, education, vocational
training, personal development
and other rehabilitation for at
least 120 days. If they violate pro-
bation, though, they'd return to
prison and lose any time off they
had received for good behavior.
Subcommittee members sug-
gested waiting until inmates
have served at least 60 percent
of their sentences instead of just
half and excluding anyone who
had committed a prior violent
crime or had been convicted of
Other ideas were to limit par-
ticipation only to drug offenders
and begin with a small experi-
mental program before seeking
legislative approval to take it
"I've taken copious notes,"
Porth said, adding that he'd work
with lawmakers who suggested
changes to craft a revised bill.
The measure must go through
two more subcommittees before
it can be heard by the full Judi-
ciary Committee. A similar bill
(SB 448) has been introduced in
the Senate but has not yet had a
Porth said the program would
cost the state half as much as the
$43,000 it spends annually for
each prison inmate. A staff bill
analysis said the bill may have
a positive financial effect but it
didn't estimate how much mon-
ey might be saved.
The bill would allow the De-
partment of Corrections to con-
tract with private or public enti-
ties to provide re-entry services
at secure areas within or adja-
cent to prisons.
On one hand, Messersmith ar-
gued prisons already offer such
rehabilitation programs and that
the only difference is the bill re-
duces sentences. Then, however,
he said, "I don't think mixing re-
habilitation in a prison environ-
The Department of Correc-
tions, though, has acknowledged
that 82 percent of inmates need-
ing drug rehabilitation don't get
it, Associated Industries' Mark
Flynn told the panel.
Messersmith also contended
the bill would conflict with an
existing law requiring prison-
ers to serve at least 85 percent
of their sentences. Porth said
that's incorrect because judges
would resentence program par-
ticipants to time served followed

Authorities could not imme-

dividuals can be convicted of a

"This comes down to focusing
our resources as best we can on
our priorities," Morton said. "We
continue to hope for compre-
hensive immigration reform at a
national level, working with the
Congress, but in the meantime,
we work with the resources we
have, under the laws we have."
The announcement comes as
the Obama administration has
sought to address critics on both
sides of the immigration debate.
Immigration advocates complain
law enforcement officials are
spending too much of their scarce
resources rounding up families
living illegally in the country who
otherwise are law-abiding. Oth-
ers say the administration isn't
doing enough' to stop the flow of
illegal immigration and protect
Americans from potential foreign
terrorists and other criminals.
Department of Homeland Se-
curity Secretary Janet Napolitano
has said the agency is focusing
its resources on criminals, re-
cent border crossers, those who
repeatedly cross the border and

Authorities say two-thirds of
those deported last year either re-
cently crossed the border or had
done so repeatedly.
But House Judiciary Chairman
U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas,
an outspoken opponent of the
Obama administration's immi-
gration policies, called the ICE
numbers inflated. He argued they
include people who voluntarily
agree to leave the country with
no penalties and can easily return

that under the Obama adminis-
tration, worksite enforcement has
dropped 70 percent.
"We cannot continue to spend billions ofdollars,
year after year, while denying we have a more
fundamentalproblem that our immigration
system no longer serves America wel."
"We could free up millions of
jobs for citizens and legal immi-
grants if we simply enforced our
immigration laws," he added.
In 2009, the administration
shifted from high-profile work-
place sweeps to less attention-

that employees are legally eligible
to work in the U.S. The depart-
ment says the shift better focuses

icy director for Americans for Im-

immigrants were detained and
convicted of driving with broken

"At $23,000 per individual to

enforcement without fixing our

fundamental problem that our
immigration system no longer

The announcement came the
same day two TV networks will
air separate shows examining
the immigration detention sys-
tem. "Lost in Detention," on PBS'
Frontline, and CNBC's docu-
mentary, "Billions Behind Bars,"
which examines the private pris-

ganized viewing parties, protests

Board of Education approves new pre-k standards
The Associated Press
SMIAMI The Florida Board
of Education approved more
rigorous learning standards for
students in the state's voluntary
pre-kindergarten program at its
meeting Tuesday in Miami.
Gathering .at Miami Edison
Senior High School in the city's
Little Haiti neighborhood, the
board also discussed several po-
tential policy changes, including
the state's application for a waiver
from federal No Child Left Behind
requirements and ongoing chal-
lenges in implementing the class-
The application for a waiver is
due to the U.S. Department of Ed-
ucation by Nov. 14, and Chancel-
lor Michael Grego said that while
the deadline is fast approaching,
Florida is set to be a leader in im-
plementing a more flexible model
aimed at improving and reward-
ing student growth.
The No Child Left Behind law
requires all students to be pro-
ficient in math and reading by
2014, but states across the coun-
try, including Florida, are far from
reaching that goal. Each year, as
benchmarks require more stu-
dents to attain math and reading
proficiency, more schools are be-
ing labeled as failures and subject
to corrective action. Only 10 per-
cent of Florida schools met the
targets last school year.
Grego told the board a waiver
is needed to better align federal
and state accountability systems
and improve student outcomes.
He said the waiver would cover
measures already under way in
Florida, including adopting col-
lege- and career-ready standards;
supporting effective teaching and
leadership, including through

said, would be using Florida's cur-

chotomous accountability sys-
tems," Carvalho said.

not to fully comply with the state's

Hurricane fund has
$3.2 billion shortfall
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE Florida's hur-
ricane fund, a state-created pool
intended to help insurers after di-
sasters, is confronting a potential
$3.2 billion shortfall.
Turmoil in the world financial
markets as well as an unsteady
and weak economy mean that
right now it is unlikely that the
fund could borrow all the money it
needs to help after a hurricane.
"The fact is that when you look at
the world economy we're in a very
uncertain environment," said Jack
Nicholson, the chief operating of-
ficer of the fund on Tuesday.
The fund was created after Hur-
ricane Andrew devastated South
Florida in 1992. Insurers purchase
coverage from the fund to help to
pay homeowners if a storm results
in widespread damages. The fund
plays an important role in how
much consumers pay for prop-
erty insurance in Florida because
it provides a low-cost backstop to
But the fund doesn't have enough
cash on hand to meet all of its obli-
gations in the event of a big storm,
or worse, a series of hurricanes. So
the fund must go out and borrow
what it needs.
Just how much the fund can bor-
"We used to think we could
bondfor $55 billion in multiple
hurricane seasons. That'sfairy
Chief operating officer of the hurricane fund
row, however, has gyrated wildly
in the last three years, as the re-
cession and debt .crisis fears have
made borrowing large sums of
money more uncertain.
"We used to think we could bond
for $55 billion in multiple hur-
ricane seasons," Nicholson said.
"That's fairy land now."
This year the fund is providing
$18.4 billion worth of coverage. It
should have more than $7 billion
of cash on hand by the end of the
year, but it would still need to bor-
row another $11 billion if a storm
were to strike.
But new estimates drawn up byfi-
nancial experts, including some of
the nation's most prominent finan-
cial firms, suggest the fund could
borrow just $8 billion over a 12-
month period. An advisory panel
on Tuesday formally approved the
new estimates. The new figures,
however, do suggest that the fund
could borrow an additional $6 bil-
lion following a major storm.

Obama looks to South to help keep his job
The Associated Press -1
JAMESTOWN, N.C. -
Three years after his sur-
prising wins in Southern
states, President Barack
Obama's re-election cam-
paign is doubling down in
the region, hoping to turn
into electoral wins and
offset potential losses in
traditional swing states
Obama's Southern strat-
egy is at the heart of the
president's three-day bus
trip this week through
North Carolina and Vir-
ginia. Obama won both
states in 2008, becoming
the first president to win
the Republican strong-
holds in a generation.
With 28 electoral votes
up for grabs between
them, wins in North Car-
olina and Virginia could
help Obama make up for
defeats in Rust Belt states
like Ohi6 and Indiana,
which he won in 2008 but
could be hard-pressed to
carry next year.
The president's bus tour
started Monday in Ashe-
ville, N.C., whose moun-
tains have attracted retir-
ees from the Northeast,
and took Obama through
rural swaths of the Blue
Ridge Mountains. He
spent the night in Greens-
boro, where four black
students launched a sit-
in at a Woolworth's lunch
counter to protest segre-
gation in 1960, a year be-
fore Obama was born.
On Tuesday, Obama was
making stops in rural Em-
poria, Va., and Hampton,
Va., where the region's
large number of black vot-
ers helped him carry the
state three years ago.
Both states have seen
economic and demo-
graphic changes that could

poll numbers in North

al trends. A recent Elon

percent, and a Quinnipiac

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.

Dear Annie: My husband and I have an
old friend whom we've known more than
40 years..For the past 20, we have alter-
nated spending Christmas Eve together.
"Betsy" has one unmarried adult son
who has not attended our Christmas
events in many years. Our daughter now
spends Christmas Eve with her hus-
band's family. My son and his wife, along
with one aunt and uncle, have always
come to us for the holidays, so the events
at our home and Betsy's have been lovely
adult affairs. However, this year, our son
has a new baby, and they are flying in to
Yesterday, I had coffee with Betsy and
asked whether she'd mind if we host
again this year since it would be so much
simpler with the baby. Our house is al-
ready equipped with a highchair, porta-
ble crib, toys, etc. And it would be much
easier for our son and daughter-in-law
since Betsy's house is not baby-proofed.
Betsy's response was quite hurtful. She
said my husband and I are too struc-
South barrels into four hearts. West leads the
club jack. What should happen? After North
made a game-invitational linit raise, South
momentarily thought about a slam. North
might have nothing wasted in clubs, ace-dou-
bleton of spades and the diamond ace.
South, counting losers, sees one in spades
(he can ruff his fourth spade in the dummy),
none in hearts, one or two in diamonds and
one in clubs. The risk, clearly, is two diamond V
losers. For that to happen, West must have the *
diamond ace, and East must gain the lead to
shift to that suit while South still has two dia-
monds in his hand. And if declarer makes the
natural-looking play, covering West's club jack
with dummy's king, East will kill that king with
his ace and switch to the diamond jack, killing
a second king and the contract.
Instead, suppose South plays dummy's low
club at trick one. If East overtakes with his ace
and shifts to diamonds, yes, declarer loses three
minor-suit tricks, but he no longer concedes a
spade, because dummy's two high clubs pro-
Now have East play low at trick one. West
leads another club, say. South ruffs away East's
ace, draws trumps ending in the dummy, and
discards a diamond on the club king to lose
only one trick in each side suit.
tured and kids should just go with the
flow. I didn't back down, and she finally
relented, but in an unfriendly way, saying
she didn't want to "create a crisis." She
totally does not understand how much
things will change with the addition of a
toddler at a dinner party. I tried to get her
to see our side, but she couldn't.
Next year, we will probably go to
Betsy's, since our son will likely start
coming home every other Christmas. But
what do you think of her response?
-A DEVOTED GRANDMOTHER
Dear Grandmother Actually, we can see
both sides. Obviously, it is easier if the
baby is at your house. However, children
are quite adaptable and can manage at
other places, too, if the parents keep a
sharp eye, bring along toys and have a
place for the child to lie down. Parents do
it every day. Still, we wish Betsy had been
more gracious in responding to your
request. It has obviously created some

Israeli soldier freed in swap for 1,000 prisoners
The Associated Press
TEL NOFAIR BASE, Israel
- Looking thin, weary and
dazed, Israeli soldier Gilad
Schalit emerged Tuesday
from more than five years
in captivity, surrounded
by Hamas militants with
black face masks who
handed him over to Egyp-
tian mediators in an ex-
change for 1,000 Palestin-
Israeli officials said Sch-
alit showed signs of mal-
nutrition and his father
said he needed time to re-
cover from psychological
and physical wounds.
More than 450 Palestin-
ians were transferred from
Israeli prisons to the West
Bank and Gaza, where
massive celebratory ral-
lies festooned with green
Hamas flags were held.
In Gaza City, tens of
thousands crammed into
an open lot where a huge
stage was set up, decorat-
ed with a mural depicting
Schalit's capture in a June
2006 raid on an army base
near the Gaza border. The
crowd exhorted militants
to seize more soldiers for
The rest of the prisoners
- about 550 more are
to be released in a second
phase in two months.
Before he was flown to
an Israel air base where
he was reunited with his
parents, Schalit spoke to
Egyptian TV in an inter-
view Israeli officials later
Looking gaunt and un-
comfortable, Schalit strug-
gled to speak at times, his
breathing noticeably la-
bored as he awkwardly an-
He said he felt good and
was "very excited" to be
Still, the circumstances
of his release, along with
the awkward TV inter-
view, in which masked
Hamas militants hovered
in the background, raised
questions about the con-
ditions the 25-year-old
After a tumultuous day
that included a reception
with the prime minister,
Schalit touched down in
his hometown of Mitzpe
Hila in northern Israel late
Tuesday on board a mili-
. Thousands of people
jammed the streets and
stood on rooftops to cel-
ebrate Schalit's return. The
ecstatic crowd sang songs,
waved Israeli flags, popped
champagne bottles, em-
braced and cheered him
A smiling Schalit briefly

Clinton in Libya to offer new aid packages
The Associated Press
TRIPOLI, Libya The Obama
administration offered millions of
dollars in new aid to Libya as Secre-
tary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton
encouraged the country's unsteady
new leadership to commit to a dem-
ocratic future free of retribution, and
acknowledged in unusually blunt
terms that the United States would
like to see former dictator Moammar
"We hope he can be captured or
killed soon so that you don't have
to fear him any longer," Clinton told
students and others at a town hall-
style gathering in the capital city.
Until now, the U.S. has generally
avoided saying that Gadhafi. should
U.S. officials usually say they want
to see him brought to justice, some-
thing Clinton also said during her
"I am proud to stand here on the
soil of a free Libya," Cliriton said. "The
United States was proud to stand for
you in your fight for freedom and we
will continue to stand with you as
you continue this journey."
SShe met with the leader of Libya's
Transitional National Council, Mah-'
moud Jibril, and offered about $11
million in additional aid. The fresh
aid boosts Washington's contribu-

The new aid package includes
medical aid for Wounded fighters
and additional assistance to secure
weaponry that many fear could fall
into the hands of terrorists. Aides
said the money is meant partly as a
pledge ,to ongoing U.S. support dur-
ing what will be a difficult passage to
free elections and a new government
after four decades of dictatorship.
"Now the hard part begins," Clin-
ton said, heading into a meeting
with the transitional leaders. *
Clinton referred several times to
the importance of including all fac-
tions in a future democratic govern-
ment, a reference to fears among
Libyans that those with ties to the
Gadhafi regime will be punished.
"The most important thing now is
to make sure that Gadhafi and his re-
gime are finally prevented from dis-
rupting the new Libya," Clinton said.
"We want to do everything we can to
prevent him from causing trouble."
Addressing leaders of the interim
body, Clinton noted that the fighting
isn't over yet but said NATO would
continue to protect civilians as long
as the threat continues.
"We are encouraged by the com-
mitment of the Transitional National
Council of taking the steps neces-
sary to bring the country together,"
she said. But the secretary also said
that "all members of all militias must
see the benefit of joining the new
She visited Tripoli Medical Center,
where she visited the bedsides of
four wounded former rebels. One
soldier was wounded Saturday dur-
ing the battle for Bani Walid, one of
two towns thought to be the most
likely hiding places for Gadhafi, who
has been on the run for weeks.
