BOOST TAX SAVINGS ON CHILD CARE
Uncle Sam is aware of how expensive child care
can be. That's why there is a dependent care credit
available to trim the tax due on your income tax
return. In addition, many people are able to fund
dependent care costs through a flexible spending
account at work. Can you?
You can't deduct those costs twice-taking the same
spending against both your FSA and your child
tax credit. But the maximum dependent care costs
you can fund through your FSA is $5,000. And the
tax credit applies, to as much as $6,000 of eligible
expenses for filers with two or more children.
Solution: Cover the first $5,000 of dependent care
cost through your FSA; the remaining $1,000 can
be used for the tax credit (Form 2441). That could
result in an extra savings of $200 on the tax bill for

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY10, 2013 5AF
aced with a complicated and potentially lethal
problem that had never been encountered before,
Ocala Mayor Kent Guinn adopted the only strat-
egy he could: Just try something.
That something was to get the Ocala City Council to
pass the state's first local ordinance banning the sale of
synthetic marijuana within the city limits. The ordi-
nance was unique in that it did not address the sub-
stance itself but rather the effects of the substance.
Four short months later, the mayor, Police Chief Greg
Graham and even state Attorney General Pam Bondi
are hailing the Ocala ordinance as a success and a
model for other communities to follow in waging what
has become a war on the highly addictive and danger-
ous synthetic marijuana, also known as K2.
The result of the Ocala ordinance, Guinn and Graham
told us, is that synthetic marijuana has disappeared
from store shelves within the city, and of the two pros-
ecutions that have been carried out, both have brought
"The city ordinance is working great," Graham said.
"There have been no constitutional challenges to it. We
have sent undercover officers back into the stores and
they have all said they're not selling it."
That is a public safety victory for the city. The syn-
thetic marijuana, most of which is made in Asia from
a mix of herbs sprayed with chemicals that make users
high, often causes dangerous side effects elevated
heart rate, severe agitation, nausea and vomiting, soar-
ing blood pressure, tremors, seizures, hallucinations
and nonresponsiveness. According to new report by the
federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service,
there were 11,406 emergency room visits linked to syn-
thetic marijuana in 2010 and that number is estimated
to have doubled last year. Making matters worse, the
symptoms are difficult to treat because ER doctors do
not know what substances are contained in the ever-
changing chemical concoctions that are sold under
such friendly names as spice, potpourri and bath salts.
That has been the legal hitch for authorities up until
Ocala's ordinance, which was developed by Guinn, city
attorney Pat Gilligan and Bondi's office. The laws previ-
ously had been addressing the chemical makeup. But
as fast as states would outlaw certain substances, the
Asian manufacturers would change the recipe, skirting
the law. Bondi told an Ocala audience last week she has
signed orders banning more than 100 different chemi-
cals, including 22 just last month, but the synthetic
marijuana just keeps coming.
Guinn's hope and ours is that Ocala's law will
serve as a model for other communities. Belleview held
a first reading on a similar ordinance Tuesday, the same
day the Marion County Commission indicated it wants
to adopt an ordinance sooner than later.
Good for Guinn, good for Ocala, good for Florida. But
most of all, good for the people who could have been
unwitting victims of synthetic marijuana who may now
be spared because, thanks to our mayor just trying
something, it appears there is a way to stop, or at least
slow, the mass-marketing of what Office of National
Drug Control Director Greg Kerlikowske recently said
"causes substantial damage to the public health and
safety in America."
Score one for the good guys.

Scott's budget shows he's still campaigning
BY BILL COTTERELL
Gov. Rick Scott's announce-
ment of a record $74.2 bil-
lion state budget plan had
the unmistakable air of a re-elec-
tion campaign rally last week.
That's not his fault:
Governors always make a big
splash with their budgets, both to
make a public statement of their
priorities and t6 generate a little
momentum going into the legisla-
tive session. Even a highly popular
governor can't wait until an election
year to start running, and when
polls show your personal popular-
ity ranking somewhere between
sinkholes and citrus canker, every-
thing you do gets examined for its
Had Scott proposed another year
of belt-tightening, his critics would
have accused him of solidifying
his conservative base rather than
reaching out to voters who might
be persuadable. By proposing $4
billion in new spending, Scott is
suspected of trying to broaden
that base by appealing to "Florida
Families First," the slogan printed
on his lectern at the budget news
The man who announced his first
state budget at a Tea Party rally in
Eustis two years ago then signed
the pared-down spending plan a
few months later at another big
gathering of applauding supporters
and school children at The Villages
- stayed in the Florida Capitol to
roll out his new budget blueprint.
This time, Scott invited about three
dozen educators, ranging from
university presidents to classroom
teachers to applaud appreciatively.
He explained the proposed bud-
get increases two ways.
First, he said, the state needs it
-teachers deserve a $2,500 raise
because student achievement,
has risen. Schools deserve $1.2
billion in added funding if for no
reason other than the workforce
Florida needs tomorrow is in the
public schools today. Businesses
should get a sales-tax exemption
on manufacturing equipment, and
the corporate income-tax exemp-
tion should rise from $50,000 to
$75,000 because money employers
save will mean more employees
- who will send it ripping through
the economy. Besides, the catch-all
answer'to every question is: "It's the
right thing to do."
Second, Scott spins these bud-
get decisions not as reversals but
results. It's not that he's changed
his past belief that there's always
more to be cut from state spending;
it's that painful reductions made
in 2011 and 2012 coupled with
a generally improving economy
- have produced the first revenue
surplus projection in several years.
Come to think of it, the Scott
story goes, we have that surplus
and the improving economy partly
because of the austerity budgets
he laid out in his first two sessions.
So he contends that those aren't
spending increases, those are
"targeted investments" that will pay
dividends for fiscal years to come.
Democrats grumbled that Scott
was trying to buy his way back into
the good graces of working families,
even school teachers, by sprinkling
the state's new revenues among tar-
get audiences. But there are plenty
oftplums in there for conservatives.
Like 3,647 fewer state job posi-
tions, a 3 percent reduction in
the government workforce. Like
no general pay raises, except for
teachers, oh, and $1,200 one-time
"bonuses" for state employees
and renewed emphasis on per-
formance-based incentive pay.
SLike no money for expansion of
Medicaid under the new national
health-care system because Scott
wants a lot more information about
its ultimate costs. Like making top
executives pay the same for health
insurance as regular state workers.
Like no new taxes or college tuition
Then there are the expenditures
that you can't really call conserva-
tive or liberal but go down well with
the voters. Like $75 million for the
Florida Forever conservation land-
buying program and $60 million
for Everglades restoration. Like $75
million for school safety.
These things fit well on bumper
stickers or into 30-second adver-
tisements, which live only in the
present. When touting a $1.25
billion increase for schools, there's
no. nged to mention that Scott's first
budget cut $1.3 billion from educa-
tion or that the $398 million
more for universities in the next
budget makes up for $300 million
cut from this fiscal year.
Apart from the budget, Scott has
cajoled state colleges into offering
$10,000 degrees. He abandoned
his 2010 campaign promise of an
Arizona-style immigration crack-
down but continues to press for
drug-testing of welfare recipients
and state employees, ideas that go
down very well with voters who are
not federal judges.
Scott's 2010 campaign slogan was
"Let's Get To Work," which is now
the name of his ie-election finance
fund. "Florida Families First," the
theme of his new budget, looks like

spoke after the exchange.
Gilmore likened his year at
the helin to the transition pe-
riod he oversaw as manager
of the local WalMart when it
was relocated in to a much
larger building and became
a Supercenter. His year as
Chamber Chairman was a
period of great change; the
Chamber plans to sell the
historic Russ House which
has for years served as its
headquarters in order to get
out from under the burden
of repairing and maintaining
an aging building, so that the
Chamber can flourish finan-
cially. A controversial deci-
sion, it was Gilmore's job to
see it through.
Alter spoke of the changes
he hopes to see in his own
year of leadership. He briefly
spoke of his three main goals;
to strengthen service to
Chamber members, to advo-
cate for business, and to take
political action when neces-
sary to accomplish that task.

In her research pro-

for improved cattle and
wildlife forage. Some of
those include new varieties

Her major emphasis
is in three areas; Bahia
grass, perennial peanuts
and cold-season forages.
She has released a variety
called Bahia Riata, which
has proven more drought-

it can grow longer into the
fall of the year. She also
is developing dwarf Ba-

Syrian troops, rebels clash over Damascus highway

BEIRUT Syrian troops

a key highway in Damas-
cus Saturday, a day after
opposition forces cut the
strategic artery as part of
what they say are efforts
to lay the groundwork for
an eventual assault on the
heavily defended capital.
Rebels have been on the
offensive in Damascus
since launching a series
of attacks on government
positions on Wednesday.
They brought their fight to
within a mile of the heart
'of the capital on Friday,
seizing army checkpoints
and cutting a key highway
as they pressed their cam-,
paign for the city, the seat
of President Bashar Assad's
The fighting is the heavi-

July, when a first rebel as-

After that rebel foray, the
regime quickly reasserted
its control over the city,
which has spared Damas-
cus much of the violence
and destruction that the
civil war has wrought on
other major urban centers.
Both the rebels and the
government consider the
fight for Damascus the
most likely endgame in a
civil war that has already
killed more than 60,000
people. The city is heavily
fortified and dotted with
armed checkpoints, and
activists say it is surround-
ed with three of the most
loyal divisions of the army,
including the Republican
Guard and the feared 4th
Division, commanded by
Assad's brother Maher.
The latest Damascus of-
fensive did not appear to
be coordinated with reb-
els on other sides of the
capital, and it was unclear'
whether the opposition
fighters would be able to
hold their ground.

to put Graceville out,"
Roulhac said after the
game. "We played tough all

and I made it."
Roulhac finished with 21
points to lead the Hornets,
with Jerodd Blount add-

a crucial three-pointer in
the second OT to cut a six-
point Graceville lead in half
with 1:04 to play.
An offensive rebound and
put-back by Sheldon Vann

11.4 seconds on the clock,
and after a pair of missed
free throws by Graceville's

Cottondale coach Chris

A basket by Blount cut

a Tigers turnover, Roulhac
scored on a free throw line
jumper to tie the game up
with 20 seconds on the
clock. Graceville couldn't
win it at the end of regula-

by Campbell was off target
in the waning seconds.
Blount started the over-
time with a three-pointer,
but White came right back
with a driving three-point
play to tie it back up.
The Hornets led 48-45
after a put;back by Jacquez
Walker with 1:10 on the

6.7 seconds to play.
But the Tigers were un-

the game went into another

JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN www.jcfloridan.com
Dear Annie: I am 39 years old. For
the past 20 years, I have had ongoing
therapy to recover from the sexual abuse
I suffered as a child. My abuser was my
half-brother. When I finally said some-
thing at the age of 13, my family did
not believe or support me. Since then,
family gatherings have been especially
difficult because my family expects me
to attend when my abuser is present. I
can't even tell you how difficult it is to be
around him. The flashbacks are unbear-
able. Five years ago, with the support of
my counselor, I decided I didn't need to
subject myself to that kind of torture and
stopped going to these family functions.
The problem now is that no one men-
tions the abuse, especially to his wife and
two daughters. His wife, who is clue-
less, sends me Christmas and birthday
presents, which makes me extremely
uncomfortable, especially when I see his
name on the card. Is it OK for me to ask
her to stop? I don't want to insert myself
into their lives or cause problems, but I
can't deal with this.
Dear Healing: Is there a risk that your
half-brother would abuse his daughters?
If so, it is imperative that you inform his
wife so she can protect her children. It
is OK to ask your sister-in-law to stop
sending gifts and cards, or you can send
a letter to your half-brother, asking him
to please cease all communication. If
you cannot bring yourself to write to him
directly, please ask a friend to do it for
Dear Annie: I am retired and am trying
to unburden myself of possessions. I re-
cently contacted a niece to ask whether
she-would like some cashmere sweaters.
They are clean and in good condition.
She said yes, so I mailed them to her.
I also included a few blouses with the
price tags still attached and a wool coat. I
didn't hear back.
Several weeks later, I emailed her to
ask whether she had received the pack-
age. After a month with no reply, I sent
another email asking whether she liked
the clothes. Still no reply. I finally wrote
her mother, explaining the situation and
asking that she find out from her daugh-
ter whether she liked the clothes. Mom
didn't reply, either.
I get along well with my niece and her
mother. I will be talking with my brother
soon and would like to ask him what to
do. The last time I sent his girls some-
thing and didn't hear back was 10 years
ago. When I mentioned it to my brother,
he interpreted it as a judgment that he
wasn't raising them right.
The niece is now 29, and you'd think
she would know better. What do you rec-
ommend? Should I ask my brother, albeit
carefully? Without a doubt, I will not be
offering this niece anything again.
Dear Disappearing: Your niece is amaz-
ingly inconsiderate. There is no excuse
for not communicating about the pack-
age you sent. Please stop asking whether
she liked the items. We understand that
you want to know, but while your niece
should thank you for your thoughtful-
ness, she is not obligated to reveal her
preferences. Repeated questioning will
get you nowhere. Let it go, and consider
it an unpleasant lesson learned.
Dear Annie: Your answer to "Distressed
in Duanesburg," the overwhelmed high
school senior, was kind and helpful. I
would like to add that a little breathing
meditation goes a long way, too. Just 10
minutes a day will reduce her stress.
, I used to' feel overwhelmed, but then
started to meditate. "Distressed" may
think she cannot possibly add another
thing to her schedule, but meditation
actually brings space to our packed days.
It isn't emptying the brain of thoughts,
as many believe. Breathing meditation
is about learning to focus on just your
breath and requires practice.
PEACEFUL AND FOCUSED
Many years ago, an expert married
couple played together, and whenever
the wife was the declarer, the husband
turned on his portable CD player. As you
might have guessed, they are not still
married. But if running tunes through
your mind helps you to relax and think
more clearly, do it.
In today's deal, what do you think of
the bidding? After West leads his fourth-
highest heart against three no-trump,
what should South do?
The South hand has only 19 high-card
points, but it has a very good five-card
suit, one 10 and two nines. It also has
seven control points (ace 2; king 1),
which is normal for a two-no-trump
opening. So I agree with South's bid. And
North, with 4-3-3-3 distribution, was
playing the percentages in not using
Declarer starts with seven top tricks:
four spades, one heart, one diamond
and one club. And there are at least three
more winners available from the club
The original declarer, though, was
tone-deaf. Thinking West had led away
from the heart king, South played low
from the board. However, East won with
his king and shifted to the diamond king.
Declarer ducked, took the next diamond,

bullpen primarily. Howev-
er, it wasn't just Locke's right
arm that will be missed this
season, but also his bat as
one of the team's top hit-
ters, as he formed with
shortstop and lead-off hit-
ter Aaron Green to form a
dynamic duo in the Pirates'
lineup last season.
The loss of Green could be
the toughest to deal with, as
Sneads will have to break in
a new shortstop and find a
new table-setter at the top
of the batting order.
Centerfielder Ryan Dan-
ford will get the first chance
to hit in the lead-off spot,
but Guerra said that the
most critical challenge
his team faces is finding
a shortstop to anchor the
Hall and Moats are the
two players competing for
the starting position, with
Guerra saying, that both
players would play a lot this
year regardless of who wins
"The shortstop thing
hurts because you take
your starting shortstop for
three years and you've got
to fill that spot, so that's the.
question on the defense
right now," he said. "We've
got the two guys work-
ing out there and one will
win the job and the other
we'll have to move around.
They're both working hard
and trying to win the spot,
but whoever doesn't win it
is still going to stay in the
"One. thing Cade has
over Brandon is youth. A
lot of times, I like to go on
points, while Bri Johnson
added eight, and Shakira
Handsford and Danielle
Holden had seven points
The Lady Bulldogs were,
playing without starting
center Latia Bass, who was
out with an injury.
Despite the loss, Brown
said he and his players take
encouragement from their
strong finish, particularly
without having Bass in the
lineup, and are positive
about the future with only
two players graduating
from this year's team.
"I'm excited for the girls
and they're real excited
about what we can be next
year," he said.
a three-year plan with a
shortstop. I had Aaron for
three years. It's tough when
you have to put a senior in
there who has to work hard
to be smooth and comfort-
able and make all the plays
at shortstop and then you
have to go and do it all
again the next year."
Danford will give the Pi-
rates athleticism and range
in center to replace Locke,
and Johnson will work ex-
clusively at second, though
virtually every other spot
on defense will be affect-
ed by the game's starting
pitcher, with several play-
ers being counted on to
play multiple positions in
Despite the loss of key
offensive cogs in Locke
and Green, Guerra said he
believes his team can be
even better offensively'this
season, with Danford and
Johnson giving Sneads two
lefties near the top of the
order to go along with solid
bats like Hayes, Lombardo,
and Moats, and the new-
comer Hall, who the coach

"I'm looking at the first
six or seven guys in the
lineup being pretty disci-
plined and pretty knowl-
edgeable of the strike zone
and having a good idea of
what they're doing at the
plate," Guerra said. "There
are probably five guys that
are fighting for those 4-5-6
spots in the order and that's
a good problem to have be-

Of course, the Pirates will
