Uncertainty, fear
surround court
after assassination.
Associated Press
Saddam Hussein's trial
resumes Monday after a five-
week break, with the defense
planning to seek a lengthy
adjournment in a proceeding
threatened by Iraq's ongoing
turmoil and tarnished by the
assassination of two defense
attorneys since the opening
session, last month.
The first prosecution wit-
nesses are expected to testify
before the five-judge panel,
offering accounts of the
deaths of more than
140 Shiite villagers following
an assassination attempt
against Saddam in the town of
Dujail in 1982.
If convicted Saddam and his
seven co-defendants could be
sentenced to death by hang-.
However, considerable
uncertainty surrounds most
details of the trial, including
how many days the session
will last, how many witnesses
will testify and whether their
identitl-s \\ill be made public.
Many of the details have not
been announced in advance
due to security demands for a
trial in the midst of a raging
insurgency - much of it led
by Saddam supporters.
For example, witnesses
have the option of testifying
from behind screens to pre-
serve their anonymity. Court
officials won't even say how
many witnesses are on the
prosecution list.
One key witness, former
intelligence officer Wadah
Ismael al-Sheik, died of cancer
after giving a videotaped depo-
sition last month. Depositions

with multiple events
planned next month to draw
attention to the downtown
Lake City area.
'This is the best turnout-

Skipper Hair, chairman of
the Downtown Action

Recently, the festival had.
been much smaller.
'"The past few years, the
festival just hasn't been as
big as we'd like to see," said
Patty Kimler, vendor-
chairperson for the event.
"We wanted a street festival
this year, like it. used to be."
This year, members of
the Downtown Action
Corporation attempted to
get as many vendors as
possible to the event.
"We were expecting
between 30 and 35 vendors
this year," Hair said.
However, .the turnout was
larger than expected this
'This year, we had
56 arts and crafts vendors
and 12 food vendors,"
Kimler said. "Last year, we

During the day, vendors'

festival attracts.
Those shopping at the
festival would find items,
such as purses, jewelry,
African art, stain glass,
knives, as well as items
from local churches and the
Red Hat Society.
"Anything you could

High Tribunal from

"All the law' ers will attend
the trial and a decision has
been taken not to 'leoaethe
president alone," defense
lawyer Issam Ghazawi said.
'The lawyers are forced to
attend the hearings, despite
serious threats on their lives,
but they want to do that to

U.S. and Iraqi officials said
they expect the session to last
until at least Thursday and
then adjourn until after nation-
al parliamentary elections set
for Dec. 15.
However, attorney
Khamees al-Ubaidi told The

defense will ask for a post-

months to allow time to review
the evidence and prepare
their case.

Other regions face dilemma

in Katrina relief spending

Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Lawmakers
from states untouched by
Hurricane Katrina face a conun-
drum - showing compassion
toward the devastated Gulf Coast
without breaking the bank and, at
the same time, balancing disaster-
relief needs in their own regions.
Congress has already approved
two emergency budget packages
totaling $62 billion for reconstruc-
tion and relief in Louisiana,
Mississippi and Alabama. But
spending has slowed, and the
White House wants some unspent
funds to be returned and others to
be moved to different projects.
Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La.,

Management Agency is still sit-
ting on more than half the money.

lit up in the colors of the season. It's
also encouraging to see Lake City's
small-town charm and atmosphere
displayed for all to see.
The festival is designed to bring
people downtown, to see the wares of
businesses and to enjoy the beginning
of the holiday season.
There were events planned
throughout the day with music, food
and fun for the family. And once night
fell, downtown glowed with thousands
of colored lights.
What better way to put Thanksgiving
Day in perspective and look forward to
the countdown to Christmas.
The Downtown Action Corporation
should be commended for its efforts to
breathe life into downtown. Through
events like Finally Friday and the
Festival of Lights, many who would
otherwise not see downtown's charm
and beauty are getting exposed to what
the area has to offer.
There will be plenty of activities in
downtown associated with the Festival
of Lights during the next few weeks.

The day Johnny

met Al Capone

There had long
been talk around
town that Johnny
Collins (CHS
1932) had had a
Lake City encounter with the
infamous gangster, Al Capone.
So, in October of 1998, I got
together with Johnny and
asked him to tell me what
happened. This was his story.
Johnny said he was a
teenager working at Frank
Appell's Seminole Pharmacyat,'
827 Marion St. It was early on a
Saturday morning and he was
the first one to arrive at work.
He had opened up and was
getting the soda fountain ready
to start serving customers.
He looked up to see three
shiny, new cars pulling up to
the curb just outside the store.
Several well dressed men
quickly exited two of the cars
and carefully looked all around
as if they were checking the
area to see who else might be
on the street
Then, one of the men
opened the back door of the
third car, a limousine, and out
stepped an expensively dressed
man who seemed to be the
leader of the group. This man
projected a strong sense of
authority and confidence and
all eyes were on him.
All the men followed their
leader inside the drug store
and one asked if Johnny could
fix them something to eat.
Johnny had just gotten there
himself, so he had to scramble
around to find them some food.
But he made them some
sandwiches and coffee. They
all stood while they ate and
their eyes were constantly
looking around.
The leader engaged Johnny
in conversation while he ate.
He asked Johnny how long he
had lived in Lake City, how
long he had worked at the drug
store, how far it was to Miami,
how were the roads to Miami.

Morris Williams
Phone: (386) 755-8 83.
Just general conversation.
Johnny answered all the
questions the best he could,
served them all the food they
wanted, and collected the bill.
As the group started to
leave, the leader warmly
complimented Johnny on being
a nice, helpful young man.
Then he motioned another
man over and said, "Give this
young man a ring." The man
reached into his pocket and
pulled out a purple; velvety
handkerchief. He unfolded it
and it contained 15-20 beautiful
gold rings. Take your choice,
the man said, and an amazed
Johnny picked a gold ring with
a diamond setting.
"Give him a watch, too," the
leader said. Another man pulled
out a selection of beautiful
pocket watches with gold
chains and Johnny selected one
of those. These were the years
just after the Great Depression
and Johnny's salary was just
$3 a week so you can imagine
his disbelief and amazement.
Johnny thanked them the best
he could and wished them a
good trip.
As the men were piling into
their cars to drive way, the last
man out of the store turned to
Johnny and said, "Young man,
you have just met Mr. Al
Capone. Ever heard &f him?"
Indeed Johnny had - most of
the people in America knew
that name.
Johnny died a few years ago,
but when I talked to him that
October day he said he still had
that watch and ring - and his

clear memories of that day
60 years before when he had
met up close and personal one
of America's most notorious
gangsters - and found him to
be polite, friendly and

An increasingly
pressing concern
to U.S. social
planners is what
happens when
the first wave of more than
30 million baby boomers
begins retiring next year.
Joel Millman of The Wall
Street Journal has come up
with an intriguing solution for
what to do with at least some
of them: Outsource them.
Real estate and the cost of
living and services are far
cheaper in the Caribbean and
Latin America than in the
mainland United States, so
why not make it easy for them

to retire there? And, besides,
those countries would like
having the relatively affluent
Millman posits Costa Rica's
policy of welcoming North
American "pensionados."
Retirees and American
tourists contribute $1.4 billion
in direct spending to the
nation's GDP and, when
related services are added in,
as much as $4 billion.
The practice has a
precedent: Northern
Europeans have long retired
to, or spent large parts of the
year on, the Mediterranean
coasts of Spain, France, Italy
and Greece.

Millman says Panamna,
Honduras, Belize and
Nicaragua are seeking
American retirees, partly in
hopes that their health-care
workers who emigrated to the
United States will return to
look after them.
The chief obstacle appears
to be the extensive health-care
networks needed to look after
an aging population and sup-
port the level of care the
boomers have come to expect.
The Bush administration is
desperate to increase exports.
Outsourcing the boomers
might be one way to do it.

The article noted that Matthew is
homeschooled - he has been since first

school work could be measured. An academic
review committee examined the credentials of
each applicant, taking into account
standardized test scores, courses taken and
grades achieved, intellectual activities outside

measurements such as grade point average
and class rank. With this range of criteria,

Praying to Jesus in Jewish setting

MELBOURNE - There is
no cross at Kol Mashiach
"People think they'll come
in here, and suddenly we'll
produce one from the back
room," said Messianic Rabbi
Alan Levine, the spiritual
leader of the Melbourne con-
gregation. "We won't. We
don't have one."
A cross, of course, is an
enduring symbol of,
Christianity and belief in the
life and death of Jesus. You'll
see one at virtually every
Christian church around the
world, but not at Kol
Mashiach, which is in a secu-
lar-looking building on Lake
Washington Road.
"We're a synagogue, not a
church," Levine said. "Don't
call us a church."
Here, members profess
their faith in Jesus, whom
they call Yeshua, as the messi-
ah and savior, but also adhere
to traditional Jewish customs
and laws. They are part of a
national Messianic movement
of as many as 300,000 people.
The movement consists of
people raised Jewish and oth-
ers, including Christians, who
were not.
In Brevard County, Kol
Mashiach and Shuvee
Messianic Congregation are

the only such groups. "Yeshua
and his disciples were
Jewish," Levine said. "There
is no getting around that fact.

Frozen ponds in Wisconsin claim three

Associated Press

The deaths of two children
and a man who broke through
frozen ponds in southeastern
Wisconsin have led officials
to warn of the dangers of skat-
ing or driving on early
winter's thin ice.
A 9-year-old girl, Megan
Obbink, fell through the ice of
a small pond while skating,
and her father, Brian Obbink,
plunged in trying to save her.
About 10 miles away, 12-year-
old Cody Lechler was driving
a four-wheeler when he broke
through another frozen pond.
"I wish it didn't take this to
stress that the ice is not thick
enough for this yet," said
Sheboygan County Sheriff's
Sgt. Kristy DeBlaey, who
confirmed Lechlers' death
late Friday.
The ice is likely to be thin
and weak early in winter, but
Deputy Jim Opgenorth said
it's always dangerous.
'There is no such thing as
safe ice," he said. "Does this
mean we shouldn't enjoy out-
door sports? No. But any time
you're on ice you're at risk."
Megan had been skating on
the football-field size pond in
Cedar Grove with her 6-year-
old sister Friday morning

Police: Oregon man steals

$200,000 worth of Legos

Associated Press

Agents had to use a 20-foot
truck to cart away the evi-
dence from a suspect's house
- mountains of Lego bricks.
William Swanberg, 40, of
Reno, Nev., was indicted by a
grand jury Wednesday,
accused of stealing hundreds
of thousands of dollars worth
of the colorful plastic building
blocks from area Target
Target estimates Swanberg
stole up to $200,000 worth of
the brick sets from their stores
in Oregon, Utah, Arizona,
Nevada and California. The
Legos were resold on the
Internet, officials said.
Attempts to reach Swanberg
at a county jail, where he was
being held on $250,000 bail,
were unsuccessful. It wasn't
known if he had an attorney.
Swanberg is accused of
switching the bar codes on
Lego boxes, replacing an
expensive one with a cheaper
label, said Detective Troy
Dolyniuk, a member of the
Washington County fraud and
identity theft enforcement
team. Police haven't said if he
found a way to create fake
labels or how he was able to

manipulate codes.
Target officials contacted
police after noticing the same
pattern at their stores in the
five western states.
A Target security guard
stopped Swanberg at a
Portland-area store Nov. 17,
after he bought 10 boxes of the
Star Wars Millennium Falcon
In his car, detectives found
56 of the Star Wars sets, valued
at $99 each, as well as 27 other
'Lego sets. In a laptop found
inside Swanberg's car, investi-

Abortion law goes before

U.S. Supreme Court

Associated Press

some, a never-enforced New
Hampshire law requiring
parental notification before a
minor has an abortion is a
backward step for women's
rights. To others, it protects
parents' right to know if their
child is having an abortion.
The U.S. Supreme Court will
consider those arguments
Wednesday as it begins to
weigh whether to reinstate 'a
law that requires parental noti-
fication 48 hours before an
abortion can be performed on
a minor.
The 2003 law was struck
down, days before it was to
take effect, for failing to pro-
vide an exception to protect a
minor's health. Under the law,
parents .or guardians must be
notified either in person or by
certified mail.
Supporters of the law say a
provision that allows a girl to
go to a judge instead of a par-
ent provides needed protection
if her health is in danger.
Opponents, however, say the
law's requirements could lead
to dangerous delays and result
in judges making medical deci-
sions instead of doctors. They
also view the law as an ill-dis-
guised attempt by abortion
opponents to chip away at Roe
v. Wade, the landmark
1973 decision that legalized
"Women are going to get
abortions no matter what,
whether it's legal or illegal,
whether they're 13 or
whether they're 50. ... Any
limitations put on it is heading
backward in time," said Becca
Pawling, 35, who leads
Annie's Forum, a weekly pro-
gram that brings together
teenage girls and older
women for snacks, support,
crafts and conversation in
The issue sparked a lively
debate among the eight
women at one recent meet-
ing.. One teen said she would
tell her father but she'd more
likely to turn to an older sib-
ling for support. Another said
she might tell her parents,
but afterward.
Some older participants
said they would support
requiring girls to get some
kind of adult counseling
before getting abortions, but
not necessarily from parents.

Jail escapees
still on loose
Associated Press
YAKIMA, Wash. - Two
more, jail escapees, one of them
a murder suspect, were recap-
tured Saturday, but two others
were still at large after nine
inmates broke out of a maxi-
mum security area of the
Yakima County Jail.
The men broke through the
ceiling of the four-story jail and
used a rope made of bed sheets
to climb down, authorities said.
Five were recaptured before
they could flee the jail grounds
Friday, but four others got
County corrections
spokesman Cpl. Ken Rink had
no information about how or
where authorities on Saturday
caught Santos Luera, 20, who
was facing a Dec. 5 murder trial
for, the shooting death of his
stepbrother, and Terry Moser,
25, who had been charged with
Authorities were expected to
bring the two men back to the
jail, Rink said, which suggested
they were recaptured without
"We have specific informa-
tion that their plans were to
arm themselves, and gain
access to weapons after they
escaped, and we're positive
they had assistance from some-
one on the outside," Granato

the legislation, but I don't like
the idea of young girls having
to go through this by them-
selves," said Emily Morgan.
"I'm 27 and I don't know if I
could handle it."
Nearly all states have laws
requiring some kind of
parental involvement when
minors have abortions.
According , to the Alan
Guttmacher Institute, a non-
profit group that researches
reproductive health issues,
21 states require parental
consent and 13 require
parental notification. Nine
other states, including New
Hampshire, have laws that
aren't in effect because
they've been blocked by
court orders.
In its last major abortion
decision, the Supreme Court.
ruled in 2000 that state abor-
tion laws must provide an

exception to protect a girl's
health in case her parents
don't agree. It passed up sev-
eral other abortion cases this
year before agreeing in May
to take up New Hampshire's
law. Some legal experts sug-
gested the surprising deci-
sion was the court's way of
reminding President Bush
what could be at, stake in fill-
ing a Supreme Court vacancy.
It's unclear ho:w many-
women would be affected by
New Hampshire's law
because the state's abortion
providers, unlike those in
almost every other state, do
not submit annual statistics to
the federal government.
Planned Parenthood of
Northern New England,
which sued to block the law,
said it performed 550 abor-
tions in New Hampshire in
2004. Fifty-two were on girls.

about 90 horsepower, he's
hardly alone - people 40 and
older have become the largest
single group of motorcycle
owners in America.
But as they hit' the road in
record numbers, riders
40 and older also' have been
getting killed more often than

their younger counterparts.
That's spurred state govern-
ments to re-examine their
motorcycle regulations.
The effort is in its infancy,
but officials from the
Washington State Patrol and
the Department of Licensing
are already discussing
refresher training courses for
experienced riders and a
requirements to show a
motorcycle license before
buying a bike.
'What we think is happen-
ing with this older group is
that they rode a motorcycle
when they were 18-20 years
old, then they hit their
40s and realized, 'Hey, I can
afford a bigger, better bike,"'
said Gigi Zenk,. a licensing
Statistics show state motor-

Nationwide, the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration's projected
2004 figures have motorcv-
clists 40 older involved in

"If it keeps going, we're
going to be in trouble. We're
already in trouble," Patrol
Capt. Jeff DeVere said.

Industry and rider groups
caution that tightened regula-
tion should not be based
solely on raw crash statistics.
"When the fatality numbers
come out each year ... special
interest groups tend to react
to that and speculate on solu-
tions without having anything
more than data," said
American Motorcyclist
Association spokesman Tom
Tim Bouche, president of
the cycle manufacturers'
Motorcycle Safety
Foundation, said officials
should consider that older rid-
,ers are the largest group of
riders, not just the largest
group of fatal crashes.
"It's not really saying
there's a cause and effect
there, or that it's a key factor,"
Bouche said. "It's simply that
the average rider is older and
they're on larger bikes."
Few would argue that phys-
ical capabilities and reaction

age. The safety foundation,

EISENHOWER: Site approved by advisory commission

Continued From Page 1A
The memorial site, selected
earlier this year, was approved
this month by the National
Capital Memorial Advisory
Commission. If it passes muster
with two other advisory groups,
the commission will formally
recommend it to Congress next
year. -
Completion of the memorial
itself remains at least five or six
years away, Reddel said. There
is no design yet, although plan-
ners envision both a physical
structure and a "living
element" that would offer
programs explaining the
president's role in history.
While many remember
Eisenhower first as the general

who launched the D-Day inva-
sion of France and led the
Allied forces to victory in
World War II, the memorial
would focus on the unheralded
accomplishments of his two
presidential terms from
"He kept the peace during
the Cold War," said Dan Holt,
director of the Eisenhower
Presidential Library and
Museum in Abilene. "Most
people don't understand how
difficult that was in the 1950s."
The Republican remained
popular throughout his presi-
dency, but when he left office,
historians dismissed him as
timid and indecisive.

Presidential appreciation
Planners have their eye on a prominent plot near the National Mall
for a monument to honor Dwight D. Eisenhower's presidency.

TRIAL: Concerns about security won't halt court date

received, and we have not had
enough time to study the case.
Some of the documents we
requested have not been deliv-
Court officials have said
they would be amenable to a
reasonable adjournment. But
officials have, also indicated
they want to wrap up the trial
as soon as possible.
Investigators are preparing up
to a dozen other cases against
Saddam, including his role in
the crackdown on the Kurds in
the .1980s and the brutal sup-
pression of a Shiite uprising in
the south in 1991.
Al-Ubaidi also said an agree-
ment had been reached "in
principle" on security for the
defense team and the boycott
threat had been withdrawn.
Some international legal and
human rights organizations
have warned that the very
legitimacy of the proceedings
depends on the government's
ability to. protect defense attor-
neys, as well as witnesses,
prosecutors and judges.
'The recent murder of two
defense lawyers in the trial
demonstrates the urgent need
to protect those lawyers as,
well as witnesses," said
Richard Dicker of Human
Rights Watch. "However, all
arrangements for witness pro-
tection must be consistent
with fair trial guarantees."

Former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein gestures in a courtroom at
Camp Victory, a former Saddam Palace, on the outskirts of
Baghdad, Iraq, in this July 1, 2004, file photo.

U.S. and' Iraqi officials hope
the trial will remind the world
of the horrific crimes of the
Saddam regime at a time when
the American public is ques-
tioning the war as well as the
.Bush administration's strategy
. ofbuilding democracy in Iraq.

has rejected suggestions that

Rwanda and the , former
Yugoslavia - insisting that
Saddam should be judged by
an Iraqi court on Iraqi soil.
Nevertheless, Iraq's security
crisis has forced U.S. and Iraqi
authorities to employ meas-
ures that make this among the
most unusual of trials.
Proceedings are open to the

world's media and will be
streamed online by Court TV'
in the United States. Iraqis can
watch the trial on the
government's television
But viewers will see the face
of only one of the five trial
judges. Identities of the others
have been withheld to protect
them and their families. The
trial is taking place in the
Green Zone - the heavily
guarded international enclave
in the heart of Baghdad where
access is restricted to Iraqis
and foreigners who have been
carefully screened.
Much of the security plan-
ning had focused on ways to
protect judges, prosecutors
and witnesses. That changed
after a dozen masked gunmen
abducted defense lawyer
Saadoun al-Janabi from his
Baghdad office the day after
the opening session. His body
was found the next day with
two bullets in his skull.
Nearly three weeks later,
defense lawyer Adel al-Zubeidi
was assassinated in a brazen
daylight ambush in Baghdad.
A colleague who was wounded
fled the country.

TROY ROBERTS/I Lake City Reporter
Michael Skinner (center) tells Santa Claus what he wants for
Christmas on Saturday night at the Festival of Lights.

FESTIVAL: Huge success

Continued From Page 1A
she said. "I'm very pleased
with the turnout. The whole
idea is to get people into the
downtown area. There are a
lot of unique stores down
here that people may not
know about, and it seems the
local stores, as well as the
vendors, are doing very well
Hair agreed.
"I've had two or three busi-
ness owners tell me that this
has been the busiest day of
the year for them," Hair said.
Saturday night, the lights
came on and Santa arrived to
greet children and adults
"Kids always line up to be
able to see Santa," Kimler
said. "Santa will be in the
park most nights leading up
to Christmas."
The lights will remain
turned, on through the
holiday season.
Harvey 'Campbell, vice-
chairman of the Downtown
Action Corporation, said that

in recent years, the festival
hasn't drawn as much of a
crowd, partly - due to
renovations to Olustee Park.
'The -festival has been
struggling recently due to the
renovations in the park,"
Campbell said. "But I think
the Festival of Lights is back
now. It is like it was in the old
days, but better."
While the vendors may
have packed up Saturday
night, the event continues
throughout the holiday.
"On December 3, we have
Miracle on Marion," Kimler
said. On Dec. 10, there will be
a Santa photo night and on
Dec. 17, DAC will host a
Snow Day for kids.
Snow Day, which will take
place from noon-6 p.m. that
Saturday, allows children and
adults to play in the snow,
something not common to
the south.
'The kids stand in line for,
hours to play in the snow,"
Kimler said.

NATIONAL FORECAST: A developing storm system will produce rain from the central Plains into the
Great Lakes. Thunderstorms will be possible from the central Gulf Coast into the mid-Mississippi Valley
in advance of a cold front. Rain will change to snow over the Upper Midwest, as temperatures begin to
drop behind the storm system. An upper-level trough will be responsible for snow continuing over the
northern and central Rockies and into the High Plains.

That was the Florida State
stat sheet following
Saturday's 34-7 loss to Florida
at The Swamp.
"If you look at these stats,
you would think we tied,"
FSU head coach Bobby
Bowden said.
The Seminoles had an
18-17 lead in first downs, won
the passing game 285 yards

Florida used two intercep-

tions and two recovered
fumbles to stop FSU drives
and score points, a key play
coming at the 9:50 mark of
the second quarter when
Florida's Marcus Thomas got
his left hand on a 43-yard
field goal attempt and Reggie
Lewis played the carom on
the big hop and raced
52 yards for a touchdown that
turned what would have been
a 7-3 halftime game into a
14-0 lead for the Gators.

South Florida's BCS dream dies at Connecticut

Bulls' loss sews up
Big East championship
for Mountaineers.
Associated Press

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. - South
Florida's Andre Hall wasn't about to
make excuses.
The leading rusher in the Big East
was stopped cold Saturday night in a
15-10 loss to the Huskies, and with the

game went the Bulls' chance to play
for the conference title and a BCS bid.
The team from Tampa ran into a
dominant UCofn defense and
33-degree weather, the coldest the
Bulls' have ever played in.
"UConn was a tough challenge for
us. It wasn't the weather," Hall said.
"With the modern technology and
equipment that can be used. I don't
think the weather affected any of our
guys. I'm not going to make any excus-
es for that being a reason why we lost."

Connecticut's Lou Allen rushed for
a career-high 101 yards and a touch-
down, Darius Butler returned a kick-
off 90 yards for a score and the
Huskies' defense did the rest. UConn
(5-5, 2-4 Big East) scored all its points
in the first half then held the Bulls'
vaunted rushing attack to 83 yards.
The Bulls (6-4, 4-2 Big East) were
averaging 229.8 yards rushing a game,
the second-best in the league, and
needed a win Saturday to force a title
game next week with West Virginia

(9-1, 6-0) in Tampa. Now the
Mountaineers will play in the Bowl
Championship Series for the first time.
UConn (5-5, 2-4) snapped a
four-game losing streak.
The Huskies kept Hall to 93 yards,
forcing the Bulls to find other options.
Instead, the Bulls fumbled the ball
away twice, quarterback Pat Julmiste
was picked off three times and an
apparent 75-yard TD reception to
Jackie Chambers was nullified by a

Muhammad Ali points to a person in the crowd as the public gathered to celebrate the dedication of
the Muhammad Ali Center on Sunday in Louisville, Ky.

Don't feel sad

Ali fading with age, but doesn't wantpity

* Commentary.
Associated Press

M uhammad Ali
was in his
room at
Palace, trying
to recover from the beating
he took from Larry Holmes
in the last major fight of his
career. In the showroom
down below, Frank Sinatra
paused one song into his act
topay tribute.
Gene Kilroy watched as
the crowd rose in a standing
ovation for Ali. Then he went
upstairs to tell him what had
"Isn't that nice," Ali said.
"As long as they don't pity
you, it's fine. I never want to
be pitied."
Ali's words from a
'quarter-century ago came to
mind again over the last few
weeks as the fighter who
once captivated the world
with his bombast outside the
ring and immense skills
inside it made two very
public appearances.
Once again, we were
reminded that time and the
ravages of Parkinson's
disease have taken a terrible
toll on Ali. The face thatwas
once the most recognizable
on earth is puffy, he trem-
bles constantly and walks
At the age of 63, he's
basically mute and trapped
inside a body that he once
commanded so majestically.
Watching him now only
serves to remind us how
fleeting life is, even for the
man who boasted he was
The Greatest.
I thought about that as I
watched video clips of Ali
receiving the Presidential
Medal of Freedom at the
White House and again last
week at the opening of a
center in Louisville, Ky., that
will serve as a memorial to
his life.
For a brief moment I felt
sorry for the great fighter
and what he had become.
Then I thought about what
he said that night in his
darkened suite, where he
was trying to come to terms

with his most devastating
Losing to Holmes in his
last big fight was bad
enough. Being humiliated
was even worse for the proud
man who made us believe
that he was indeed The
All Ali could do was take
solace in the fact that he
never went down.
"Well, they've got no
picture of me down on my
back," he told Kilroy. -,
There's no pictures of Ali
on his back today, either.
There doesn't need to be.
Watching him struggle to
stay on his feet, frail from the
Parkinson's and recent back �
surgery, is tough enough to'
By all accounts, Ali carried
himself with dignity at the
White House and later at the
opening of the Muhammad
Ali Center in his hometown.
He couldn't speak, but the
halting gestures he made
showed that his mind
remains alert even as his
body degenerates.
Kilroy knows Ali as well as
anyone outside his immedi-
ate family. He traveled the
world with him as his busi-
ness manager in his prime,
and brought him to
Washington, D.C., this sum-
mer to watch his daughter,
Laila, fight.
It saddens him to see what
is happening to his friend.
But he also knows Ali
wouldn't want anyone feeling
sorry for him.
"He doesn't want to be
pitied," Kilroy said. "He's
done too many great things
to be pitied."
A lot of those things are on
display at the Ali center,
where exhibits trace not only
Ali's career in the ring but
his activities outside it. It's
there, warts and all, includ-
ing a
section on Ali's famous
SIt's an $80 million tribute
to one man, the boxer who
grew up as Cassius Clay only
to become the most famous
man in the world as
Muhammad Ali. What is so
impressive is that these are
the kind of monuments only

presidents get, only theirs
aren't nearly as interesting.
Somewhere along the way,
Ali crossed the line from
athlete to statesman and
world hero. It began during
his career, grew as he
promoted peace and
reconciliation in his
retirement,'and was
cemented when he stood
trembling for long moments
in an iconic moment before
lighting the Olympic torch in
Atlanta in 1996.
He fought -'rilliantly all his
life, and now he fights quietly
against a disease he cannot
beat. To see him doing so
can be as inspiring as watch-
ing him knock out Sonny
Liston or defeat big, bad
George Foreman in the
Rumble in the Jungle.
As he ages, though, it gets
even tougher. One look at Ali
today will tell you that.
Laila Ali created a stir a
few weeks ago when she said
her father seemed to be fad-
ing. That led to unfounded
rumors in the British
tabloids that Ali had only
months to live.
And Ali underwent back
surgery recently that seemed
to weaken him even further.
"He's slowed down a lot,"
Kilroy said.
Unfortunately, old fighters
don't tend to age gracefully.
They've taken too much
abuse, and Ali took more
than most. The thousands of
punches Ali took to the head
during his career likely led to
the Parkinson's that was
diagnosed shortly after he
Still, Ali refuses to feel
sorry for himself. He'tells
Kilroy it could be a lot worse.
Other people have pain and
cancer, he says, and he
The memories are good,

Stevens finishes second in final race

Associated Press

Stevens finished second in
the last ride of his Hall of
Fame career, pushing heavily
favored Louve Royale within a
length of winner Moonshine
Gal in a 1'/r-mile race on
Churchill Downs' turf course.
Despite the loss, Stevens

left as "the happiest guy in the
world," he said to the
applause from thousands of
fans on a cold, overcast day.
"I don't have to go through
the pain anymore," the
42-year-old . jockey said,
acknowledging a series of
knee injuries.
Stevens finished with 5,005
career victories and more

than $220 million in purse
earnings. He will stay
involved in racing, serving as
an analyst for TVG network.
Though he spent most of
his career in California,
Stevens' final race came at the
famed Kentucky track that is
home to the Kentucky Derby,
a race he won three times -
in 1988, 1995 and 1997.

for 285 yards, threw a touch-
down and two interceptions.
He was sacked five times, offi-
cially hurried three times and
finished many plays on his
back as he scrambled to find a
passing lane.
"We had people open,"
Bowden said. "We couldn't
protect the passer."
Weatherford wore his uni-
form into the media interview
room and the Swamp stains
that covered his No. 11 jersey
and pants were testimony to
his assessment.
"It was ugly," he said.
Bowden filled in the details.
"They ran slap over us and
around us," the coach said.

'"When we cocked our arm,
they were back there before
we knew it. They out
athleticked us out front."
Florida State now has lost
three in a row for the first
time since 1981.
"At the beginning of the
season, it looked like we
might go 10-1 or 11-1, then we
went on a bad spell," Bowden
said. "I'don't know, if I only
have to deal with this every
20 years, I'll be OK, but it ain't
looking too good."

There's just no excuse in the
way we played."
Bowden said there's no

half Saturday at New York's Madison Square Garden.

Knicks have answer

Associated Press

NEW YORK .- After
playing poorly in the first half,
the New York Knicks went
with a smaller lineup and
came up with their biggest
win of the season.
A buzzer-beating 3-pointer
by 5-foot-9 Nate Robinson lift-
ed the Knicks to a 105-102
overtime victory against the
Philadelphia 76ers :on
Stephon Marbury scored a
season-high 33 points and

rookie Channing Frye added
21 points and 11 rebounds for
New York, which rallied from
a 16-point deficit in the third
quarter and then squandered
a nine-point lead in the fourth.
Allen Iverson had 40 points
and 10 assists, and Chris
Webber scored 19 points for
Philadelphia, which has lost
four of five. Webber tipped in
Iverson's miss with .6 seconds

The 76ers, who trailed by
six in overtime, tied it on

Iverson's -3-pointer with
6.2 seconds remaining. The
Knicks pushed the ball up the
court and Robinson took a
23-foot jumper from the right
side just before the buzzer.
"I just knew if I get it up
high enough I would have a
good chance of making it,"
Robinson said. "So I just shot
it hard and let it go."

Funk dresses the part;

wins 6 skins with eagle

Associated Press

LA QUINTA, Calif. - He who -wears the
skirt laughs last.
Proving that he's one of the best sports
around, Fred Funk wore a pink flowered skirt
for the third hole of the Skins Game on
Saturday, his penalty for being outdriven by
Annika Sorenstam.
Funk then ended one of the silliest front
nines ever by sinking a 25-foot eagle putt from
the fringe to win $225,000 and six skins.
"It was beyond expectations," said the
49-year-old Funk, who was making his Skins
Game debut. "I was a nervous wreck on one,
then I had to pull the skirt out on three, and
that was a lot of fun.
"It was just an unbelievable front nine."
Tiger Woods was the only other member of
the foursome to cash in during the first nine
holes at Trilogy Golf Course, winning three
skins and $75,000 on No. 3, the hole that had
everyone laughing.
"I know he had the skirt on, but I don't
know if he had a thong on underneath there,"
Woods said. "It certainly was good."
Woods ignited a battle of the sexes by
telling Funk that he'd never hear the end of it
if Sorenstam outdrove him even once during
the Skins Game, which is sponsored by
Merrill Lynch.
Funk, known for his short but straight tee
shots, told Sorenstam a few weeks ago that
he'd wear the skirt for an entire hole if she
outdrove him. He just didn't imagine having
to wear it so early.
After coming close on the first two holes,
Sorenstam outdrove Funk by seven yards on
the-par-5 No. 3. Because of the angle, Funk's
ball technically was closer to the hole. But
Sorenstam's ball had sailed 278 yards off the
tee and Funk's 271 yards.
"I hit it right into the hill; it just didn't roll
anywhere," Funk said.
Sorenstam pulled the skirt out of her bag
and the easygoing Funk gamely pulled it on
over his pants.
"It's Funky's idea," said Sorenstam, who's
coming off a 10-win season on the LPGATour.
"I thought it was a great idea. I said, 'I'm in,
I'm cool.' It was just a matter of when. I was
hoping it would be sooner rather than later. It
was kind of heavy for my caddie to carry."
"It was a big skirt," Funk said.
Before hitting his approach shot, Funk got
into the spirit of the gag by rolling up his
pants legs. Later, Sorenstam autographed the
skirt, with Funk still in it.
"I was hoping it wasn't going to come out
quite so early," Funk said. "I never really
realized how hard it is to line up a putt with a
skirt on. Especially with Tiger looking from
the other end. That was a lot of fun, though."
While marking his ball on the green, "I
almost pulled a. groin trying to get down
there," Funk said.
As he squatted to line up his putt, Funk
asked Woods, "What do you think?"
Woods' sidesplitting response was much
more suited for the locker room than.national

As he walked off the green, still laughing,
Woods said: "I don't think anybody will
remember me winning skins here."
Funk got his payback when he kept
Sorenstam from winning $75,000 on the par-3
No. 6.
""'S renstam drove the flag and her ball
landed 2 feet from the hole, seemingly a

Fiddling While
Stock Burns
During the great tech-stock bub-
ble, I bought 300 shares of Gene
Logic at S6, an $1,800 investment.
Some few months later it soared
past $150 - a S45,000
jackpot for me. But I
didn't sell. I held it as it
fell and fell, selling half
at $30 and the other half at $16.
Although I made a profit, I fiddled
and hesitated while my treasure
burned.- B.B., Flagstaff Ariz.
The Fool Responds: Your error
wasn't in failing to sell at the stock's
peak. After all, exactly when a stock
hits its peak is never clear except in
hindsight. But when a stock surges,
it's good to examine it closely, to see
whether it has gotten ahead of itself
and is trading at values well above
its actual worth. That's what hap-
pened to the stock of many good
companies during the heyday of the
late 1990s and early 2000. At least
you got out with a profit. Many

Creative gift selection

can help build a small

company's relationships

AP Business Writer

Patricia Smith gives holiday
gifts to her clients, she doesn't
go the traditional routes,
selecting something from a
catalog or Web. site. Her
suppliers are her clients
Smith, owner of Denver-
based OnTarget Public
Relations LLC, has given
clients T-shirts from the
women's outdoor clothing
firm she represented and bath
salts manufactured by another
company she's done projects
for. Her holiday cards are
printed by yet another
customer, a stationery firm.
"I'm not overtly selling the
product, but saying I believe
in what my client is doing,"
Smith said.
That gives all of Smith's
clients the message that she's
committed to them and their
products and services.
Moreover, she said, "they
appreciate that they get
something unusual."
It can be tempting for a
small business owner to go
the quick-and-dirty route of
holiday gift giving to clients:
mugs or other knickknacks
.imprinted with the company
name, fruit baskets, oversized
tins of popcorn.
But do that, and you miss
out on some great marketing
The whole point of giving
gifts to clients or customers is
to let them know how much
you appreciate not just their
business, but how highly you
think of them. Giving the obvi-
ous doesn't convey that mes-
sage, but getting creative
about gifts absolutely will.
Neil Vineberg, who owns a

public relations firm in
Westhampton, N:Y., looks for
gifts that will help his clients
in their work.
"I think I know my clients
and I think I know what will
appeal to them," he said.
"They're hard-driving, entre-
preneurial types, techie types,
a lot on the road."
So he tends to give iPods
and USB portable drives to
the top executives of the firms
he represents. "I want the gift
to demonstrate that I'm aware
of some of the challenges"
they face, said Vineberg,
owner of Vineberg
Communications Inc.
."The gift has to be reflective
of who you are as a person,
and it needs to demonstrate
that you've put a lot of thought
and care into it," he said. He
dismisses gifts like mugs as
Vineberg doesn't overlook
the rest of his clients' staffers;
they get big food baskets to
spread the goodwill around. "
Businesses with a limited
number of clients or cus-
tomers can find it easier to
buy customized or individual
gifts. It gets harder to do that
when you have a longer list of
Ervin & Smith Advertising
in Omaha, Neb., has a big
client base, approximately
500. Kristen Petrick, director
of public relations for the firm,
said Ervin & Smith tiers its
presents, giving larger, more
personalized gifts to general
marketing directors and other
top executives at clients.
But the company also
strives for creativity in gifts for
the rest of its contacts - this
year, Ervin & Smith is send-
ing tins of candy with prepaid

Another quarter is in the books,
and energy behemoth ExxonMobil
(NYSE: XOM) continues to gener-
ate - and share - copious
amounts of cash flow. Much like
rival BP (NYSE: BP), ExxonMobil
continues to do right by its
shareholders even though .
energy production levels
aren't anything to crow
For the third quarter,; the com-
pany saw revenue grow 32 percent
to $101 billion. Leaving out some
so-called "extraordinary" items,
ExxonMobil saw net income rise 33
percent in the quarter and earnings
per share grow by 38 percent.
Operating cash flow totaled $15.7
billion in the period, up by two-
thirds from last year's figure. While
the company continues to pour a lot
of that money into exploration and
other capital expenditures - to the
tune of $4.4 billion this quarter -
it also spent $6.8 billion on share
repurchases and dividends.
With the big oil and gas pla,, el s.
production is something of an issue.

A recent survey suggests
that most job-searching mis-

process and on the resume.
Job seekers must learn to sell
their abilities and accom-

part of the selling process is
to convince the buyer, the
employer, that experience
does not have to be paid for
by an employer. It's a matter
of definition, or semantics.
You can achieve job-related
experience in school, in vol-
unteer work, in hobby activi-

friends. If you complete
work-related activities that
are successful, then you

Oil industry profit bonanza

passing by gas station owners

San Francisco Chronicle
High gasoline prices don't
necessarily make service sta-
tion operators rich. Ask
Ricardo Tan.
Last year, not even record
prices at the pump could save
his Berkeley, Calif., gas
station business.
The problem wasn't his
location. His Shell station bor-
dered an avenue thick with
cars heading to and from the
nearby freeway. But oil giant
Shell, which owns the facility,
was drastically raising Tan's
The $2,000 per month he
paid in the late 1990s had
gone to $7,900 in 2001, then
$8,600 the following year, he
said. Now, the company want-
ed $11,710. And that didn't
include other monthly fees he
was obliged to pay for credit
card' processing and station
Tan decided he couldn't
make a profit. He walked away
from the station, turning it
back over to Shell.
"With a gas station, every-
one's fighting for every nickel
and dime," said Tan, 48. "It's
not necessarily a good living."
Today, many dealers say
the oil industry bonanza of
2005 is passing them by. Their
parent corporations have post-
ed record profits -' $9.9 bil-
lion during the three months

that ended in September in
Exxon Mobil's case - from
prices that briefly topped
$70 for a barrel of crude and
$3 for a gallon of gas.
Angry motorists, convinced
they're being gouged, often
blame the face behind the
service station counter.
But ask dealers about their

profit margins,
insist they're
making 2 cents
or less per gal-
lon. They may
even be losing
money selling
To under-
stand why, you
have to peer
into the murky
mechanics of

ing. Dealers

and some

Even among the brand-
name stations, there are
important differences. Many
stations are run by dealers
who essentially act as fran-
chisees, leasing their facilities
from the company and setting
their own retail prices. Others
are run directly by the compa-
nies with a manager who
oversees several stations.

"The law says
(oil companies)
can't tell us how
to price, and they
don't. But they'll
price wholesale in
ways to force you
up and down."

parent companies.
Government demands its own

And all of these affect the
price you pay at the pump.
First, understand that not
all stations operate the same
way. Some sell gasoline for the
oil industry's big brands, such
as BP, Chevron or Shell.
Others don't, offering what
amounts to generic gas.

'The law says (oil compa-
nies) can't tell us how to price,
and they don't," said Bill
Currie, a Chevron dealer in
San Francisco. "But they'll
price wholesale in ways to
force you up and down."
Dealers at big-brand sta-
tions, for example, typically
must buy their gasoline from
the company they represent,
even if they could find less-
expensive gas elsewhere.
And the amount each oil
company charges dealers for
wholesale gasoline varies
from one location to another,
in a system called "zone pric-
ing." A dealer in San
Francisco's Marina district
might not pay the same price,
for the same gas, as a Mission
District dealer working for the
same firm. Dealers resent
"Zone pricing is nothing
less than redlining in the
insurance industry," said
Dennis DeCota, executive
director of the California
Service Station and
Automotive Repair
Dealers also typically pay a
monthly fee, determined by
their company, for processing
credit card transactions. They
pay another -for maintenance
on the station's equipment,
sometimes whether they need
repairs or not.

Location is everything, even in afterlife

San Francisco Chronicle
SONOMA, Calilf. - Mayor Larry
Barnett stood among the oak trees in this
town's scenic Mountain Cemetery and
talked about how competitive the real
estate market is - six feet under.
"We're at capacity; there just isn't any
more space here," he said. The city-run
cemetery on a hillside behind town essen-
tially ran out of room last year. Another
city-run cemetery still has some space, but
it is also running out of room. Once there
are no gravesites to sell at the two ceme-
teries, there will be no revenue to cover
the annual $250,000 in maintenance costs.
But Barnett had a brainstorm, inspired
by the droves of expensive
"mini-mansions" being built in Sonoma.
"If we're looking for revenues for the
cemetery, maybe we could create sites for
mini-mausoleum mansions - essentially

more elaborate structures higher up on
the hill that people would be willing to pay
a very high premium price for," he said.
"People are willing to pay a premium for
places when they're alive. My thought was,
maybe we can extend the same concept to
places after they're dead. The trends are
bigger and fancier and a little more osten-
tatious and showy. I think we can
accommodate that - at a price." ,
Armed with a 53-page consultants'
report, the Sonoma City Council is now
considering a multimillion-dollar cemetery
expansion to build luxury crypts and cre-
mation niches on the hillside above the
existing cemetery.
Because the idea is still in the evaluation
stage, it hasn't drawn much public feed-
back. One thing Sonoma residents are
clear on, Barnett said, is wanting "to keep
that hillside as natural as possible."
Several years ago, voters passed an

initiative prohibiting the development of
the site above the cemetery for a resort or
The mantra of real estate - location,
location, location - holds just as true in
the afterlife.
"There are stunning views up here,"
Barnett said, motioning at the gentle
rolling hills of the Wine Country in the dis-
tance. "People gravitate toward beautiful
spots as a resting place. We can create a
unique set of resting places which, for lack
of a better term, would be a tomb with a
The cemetery has other selling points,
too. It boasts some historically significant
residents, including Mexican Gen.
Mariano Vallejo, who established both the
city of Sonoma and its first cemetery in
1835; and Capt. William Smith, the only
Revolutionary War veteran known to be
buried in California.

SHOPPING: Retailers optimistic about this season

Continued From Page 1C
Tina Ammons, store man-
ager of Belk in Lake City, said
she also believed profits
would be up.
"For the year, profits will
have definitely increase,"
Ammons said.

morning to a rush of,

are worried, however, about
the possible lack of shopping
this year, due in part to the,
flux in gasoline and oil prices.
"Gas prices are moderat-
ing, but it is still expensive to
drive long distances to shop,"
DeHart said.
"I think the prices will keep
people at home, here in Lake
City. This could be helpful to
our economy, because people
are spending here rather than

Ammons agreed.

By Associated Designs

Painted shutters, ,slender porch
posts and a trio of gables attract
appreciative glances to the Chesa-
peake, a mid-sized home with a
dash of Cape Cod flavor. Arched
openings on the covered porch and

This time of
year, as trees
lose their
leaves, the
Service gets calls from
people asking how to get
rid of mistletoe in their
trees: The standard answer
is the tree limb has to be
pruned off at least a foot
back toward the trunk from
where the mistletoe is
Mistletoe is a parasite
and depends on the host
tree to provide water and.
nutrients for its survival.
Mistletoe sends little
root-like structures into the
wood of the host tree and
can resprout if it is simply
cut off at the base of the
plant. A few mistletoe
plants will not hurt a large
healthy tree, but several
mistletoes may weaken a
tree in time.
The Celtic name for
mistletoe means Aall-heal
- emphasizing Itlir belief
that it possessed
miraculous healing powers.
Looking at the botany text
books, I found there are
hundreds of species of
The American mistletoe
is in the genus
Phoradendron. An old
herbalist book ("Using
Plants for Healing" by
Nelson Coon, 1963)
describes the
Phoradendron mistletoe as
being a "powerful stimulant
... producing a rise in blood
The European mistletoe,
in the genus Viscum, is
described as being used for
the reduction of blood
pressure. Both are in the
same plant family and look
essentially alike. This
reminds us that herbs can
be useful medicines, but we
should be careful of the
source of their
recommendations and
check the exact species of
plant being prescribed.
Mistletoe spreads from
tree to tree with the
assistance of birds,
squirrels, and other small
rodents. The berries are
sticky and cling to the
feeding animal. A bird that
has just eaten some berries
might fly to another tree,
get bothered by the
hitchhiking berries, and
rub them off on a limb.
Voila! A new mistletoe plant
soon emerges.
Another insight on
mistletoe propagation is
illustrated by the Anglo-
Saxon word Amistel -
meaning dung - and the
word Atan - meaning
twig. Put these together
and their name for
mistletoe means Abird
dung on a twig - referring
to another way it is spread
from tree to tree.
Mistletoe can parasitize
oak, pecan, black cherry
and other trees. Even so, it
has a positive place in the
food chain. As mentioned
earlier, their berries are
eaten by wildlife. The
mistletoe is also a larval
host plant for the Blue
Hairstreak butterfly. I'm not
sure, however, that you want

SAVANNAH, Ga. - At a cozy corner
table of Mrs. Wilkes' Dining Room,
Andrea and Roland Lemke sit elbow-to-
elbow with complete strangers as the
manager rings the bell at 11 a.m. and
asks for bowed heads.

upbringing gives folks an edge in eti-
quette. A recent AP-Ipsos poll found
that while 55 percent of Southern adults
believe they are more courteous than
people in other regions only 35 percent
of Americans outside the South agree.
The Lemkes became believers after
moving into their gated community just

across the Savannah River. Whether
riding in their car or hiring contractors
to work on their home, theirs clearly
wasn't a Wisconsin welcome.
"As you're driving down the street
and people are jogging ur walking, they
all wave. And I don't even know these
people, for crying out loud." Andrea
Lemke said. "I'm always addressed as
'ma'am' or 'Mrs. Lemke.' It drove me
crazy when I was dealing with contrac-
tors. They never called me by my first
name, even though I'd given them
permission to do so."
It's impossible to measure whether
Southerners honestly have bragging
rights when it comes to courtesy. But
regional historians say the South defi-
nitely has its own distinct culture of
manners that grew from its small-town,
agrarian settlements and flourished
among the slave plantations of the
19th century.

Special to the Reporter
As dean of Liberal Arts and
Sciences at Lake City
Community College (LCCC),
I invite you to increase your
career options and your
current professional and
personal effectiveness by
pursuing an associate in arts
(A.A.) degree at LCCC.
The A.A. program is a'
two-year course of study that
prepares a student for
transfer to, and guaranteed
acceptance into any of
Florida's public colleges or
Because an A.A. is a
general course of study, it
allows you a great deal of
freedom in exploring options
related to your future career.
After securing an A.A., you
will be prepared for transfer
to a university, and focus on a
bachelor's degree in any
number of fields including
biology; education; forest
resource and conservation;
engineering (general);
history, English;
communications (mass) -
which includes such majors
as advertising, motion
picture and TV technology
and art, journalism, etc.;

computer science; nursing,
pharmacy, radiology,
social work, 4
and many
other -
To Dopson
more options that you may
pursue with your A.A.
degree, please see page 61 in
the 2005-2006 LCCC Catalog
for a listing. If you need a
current catalog, request one
to be sent to you from the
admissions office at 754-4287.
When choosing your
future major at an
upper-division college or
university, be sure to contact
that university to be sure you
are taking the necessary
courses for admission to its
program while at LCCC.
Also, be sure to utilize the
college's advising center
when registering for classes
to be sure you stay on track
to finish your degree in a
timely fashion saving time
and money.
Why should you pursue an
A.A. degree? The biggest
reason is your lifetime
earning potential. The
National Census Bureau,

found in 1999 that an A.A.
degree recipient will earn
$30.0,000 dollars more than a
high school graduate
throughout the course of a
lifetime. What's more, a
bachelor's degree recipient
will earn an average of
$1,000,000 dollars more in a
lifetime as compared to a
high school graduate. The
more education you gain,
the more your financial life
will be enriched. While
these statistics are more
than 5 years old, think of
what advantages you may
achieve now. We owe it to
our families, our community
and to ourselves to reach for
a higher degree.
Why is Lake City
Community College the
perfect place to start? First
we're more affordable than a
university, we have a greater
ability to meet students'
individual needs, and our
faculty and staff care about
the students who come
through our doors.
At LCCC you'll be treated
as a person, not as a

top of all these positives, the
college offers a wide range
of student services including
the student government
association where leadership
skills and team building can
be developed. Plus, the
student activities office
offers a wide range of
socials, entertainment, and
exciting events throughout
each semester, as well as
coordinating numerous
special interest clubs.
In addition, in July of this
year, the Liberal Arts
division began a new
program - the Academy of
Teacher Preparation
Programs. The academy is
divided into two areas: Early
Childhood and the Educator
Preparation Institute. Early
Childhood offers an
associate in science degree
as well as the child
development associate
(CDA). It also offer"courses
required for daycare
certification that are taught
throughout the year at
several LCCC locations.
The Educator Preparation
Institute is designed for
those interested in becoming
a teacher or maintaining
teacher certification, as well
as paraprofessionals seeking
the 60-credit hours. Students

desiring to earn an associate
in arts degree with an
emphasis in education will
find all the necessary
courses offered online and
on campus. Individuals with
a bachelor's degree or
higher will be able to take
the one-year Florida-
endorsed Alternative
Certification modules
allowing them to teach in the
public school system in just
one year!
I hope that you will give
yourself a holiday gift this
year that will keep giving

Future." Visit the college

Horde of wedding houseguests

would be too close for comfort

DEAR ABBY: My hus-
band's son is planning a wed-
ding for next year. I am not
very close to him or his fiancee.
My problem is my husband
wants all of his out-of-state fam-
ily to stay with us in the new
home that we just moved into a
few months ago. They'll be
staying for one week.
I feel we'll be very busy and
stressed at that time. Also, the
house is not quite ready for
overnight guests. Would I be
out of line to ask everyone to
stay in a nearby motel? My hus-
band thinks it would be rude;
however, he will make his
decision based on your answer.
you had mentioned how many
of your husband's relatives
would be staying with you, and
how many bedrooms you have
to accommodate them.
However, I'll venture a guess
that it'll be a horde, and they'd
be camped out on air mattress-
es and underfoot everywhere.
If that's the case, I agree it
would be too stressful.
It is common for the parents
of the bridal couple to arrange
to reserve a block of hotel
rooms at reduced rates on
occasions like this. That way,
guests have private space for
quiet time, their own bed to
sleep in, their own bathroom
accommodations, etc. And
that's what I suggest you do for

Abigail Van Buren

your stepson's wedding. To
make your guests feel wel-
come, arrange to have a fruit
and/or snack basket waiting in
each room when your guests
arrive, plus an itinerary of
things for them to do. (It goes
without saying that you would
entertain them in your home at
least once during the week
they're in town.)
DEAR ABBY: Although I
am only 18, 1 am married, work
a full-time job and am in my
second year of college. I am
currently in an accounting posi-
tion, which makes me look and
feel older than I actually am.
When people at work ask me
how old I am, I feel like they
start to look down on me
because I am younger than
they are. I actually supervise a
woman who is 30, and I'm wor-
ried that once she finds out my
age she will not listen to me.
I want respect in the work-
place, so what should I say
when people ask how old I am?

BUSINESS: There are certain
categories of questions that by
law cannot be asked in the
workplace. Among them are
marital status, religion, race
and age. You are not obligated
to tell anyone how old you are
(or aren't), so when you are
asked, reply, "If you promise
not to ask my age, I'll promise
not to ask your bank balance."
DEAR ABBY: Being elder-
ly, my husband and I wonder
what we should do if either one
of us wakes up and finds the
other one deceased. Should we
call the local funeral parlor, or
should we' contact the police?
Can you please answer this
question for us? We are truly at
a loss as to what to do. -
AHEAD: If one ,of you should
die in your sleep, the survivor
should telephone your local
police department (not 911) so
they can determine if the death
was .due to natural causes.
They will then help the sur-
vivor to contact other family
members, the funeral home,
While this may not be stan-
dard operating procedure in
every state, I know for a fact
that it is in Minnesota and
California - and I suspect that
it's similar in most other states
as well.

Gallagher is a Memphis soul singer at heart

Associated Press
Calif. - Peter Gallagher's
green eyes sparkle as he leans
back in his dressing room and
hums a tune. He looks excited,
nervous and expectant. And
he should. The "O.C." dad is
putting out his first record... at
age 50.
"I knew I was going to have
to put together an evening of
music before I hang it up,
because if I didn't do it, it
would be a real terrible thing
for me," says the actor on the
set of his hit show.
Gallagher's album "7 Days
in Memphis" was released in

early November by Epic
Records. Bluesy and heartfelt,
the collection of mostly
Memphis soul covers is a
great opportunity - albeit a
daunting one - for the long-
time actor and Broadway
singer to showcase his singing
. chops.
"What's scary about doing a
solo record like this is admit-
ting your own taste," he says.
"I don't have a character to
hide behind."
Not that fans of 'The O.C"
haven't already heard
Gallagher belt out the blues.
Last season, Gallagher's TV
alter-ego - jolly attorney and
hip father Sandy Cohen -
jumped up on a stage and

brought down the house with
Solomon Burke's passionate
"Don't Give Up on Me."
Fans and critics praised
Gallagher for his warm, thun-
derous voice, and record exec-
. utives came calling. Epic exec-
utives urged Gallagher to
record a slew of '60s and '70s
songs from Memphis'
Stax/Volt label in the vein of
"Don't Give Up on Me." They
gave him a multi-disc set of
Memphis music to study.
It was a perfect match.
"I had no idea I listened to
Memphis soul as a kid," says
Gallagher, who as a 12-year-old
loved Stax/Volt artists such as
Otis Redding and Booker T. &
the MG's. Redding's 1968 hit

"(Sitting On) The Dock of the
Bay" is still one of his favorite
"But no one needs to do
'Dock of the Bay' again," he
says. "I just don't think you can
mess with perfection. Maybe
not no one, but not me."
Instead, he chose lesser
known songs by the likes of
Carla and Rufus and Sam and
Dave, and tunes such as the
horn-infused "I've Got to Love
Somebody's Baby" and the
emotive soul ballad '"Then You
Can Tell Me Goodbye." He
hopes the selection will attract
older baby boomers and curi-
ous younger fans akin to his
20-something castmates on
'The O.C."

SOUTHERN: Is the New South becoming No South?

Continued From Page 1D
a new Associated Press-Ipsos
poll finds that the percentage
of people in the
region identifying themselves
as "Southerners" is slowly
The AP-Ipsos poll conduct-
ed this past month found
63 percent of people living in
the region identified them-
selves as Southerners. That
mirrors a trend from a
University of North Carolina
analysis of polling data that
found a 7 percent decline on
the same Southern identity
question from 1991 to 2001, to
70 percent.
"Does it mean that being a
Southerner no longer has any
meaning? I don't think it
does," says Larry Griffin, a
sociologist at North Carolina
who analyzed the AP polling
data. "It just has a very
different kind of meaning."
Are the qualities that have
long been ascribed to the
South really true anymore?
Are Southerners really more
hospitable , than other
Americans? Does family really
count for more down South?
Are depth of faith, loyalty to,
home, reverence for history
and sense of place identifiably
"Southern" traits?
The South has become "sort
of like a lifestyle, rather than
an identity anymore," James
Cobb, author of the newly pub-
lished "Away Down South: A
History of Southern Identity,"
would argue. 'The things now
we would base Southern
distinctiveness on are so
And sometimes contradicto-
ry: In a region that once tried
to break away from the Union,
people are generally consid-
ered more patriotic than the
rest of Americans; in a place
where blacks were oppressed

ing themselves as "Southern"
even more often than whites

local paper recently ran a land-

"N.C. set to become Yankee

letter wondering when we'd
finally, get beyond the Civil

Why? Because of the politi-
cal baggage he associates with
the term.
"I'm not a red-stater at all,"
says the 61-year-old retired
investment banker from Mount
Pleasant, whose family has been
in the region since the 1800s.
"You know how a Southerner,
defines 'patriotic'? He supports
any and every war."
So how do you measure
Studies have found that peo-
ple in the region enlist in the
military out of proportion to
their percentage of the overall
population. But that could be as
much a factor of economics or
the predominance of military
installations in the region, as
love of country.
And what about the so-called
Bible Belt? Are Southerners
really more religious than
other Americans?
Church attendance figures
compiled by David Olson,
director of the American
Church Research Project,
show Southerners are much
more likely than the average
American to go to church -

though, as a region, their
Midwestern brethren have a
slight edge. The Arbitron
broadcast rating service finds
that Southern dwellers are
48 percent more likely than
people in the rest of the coun-
try to listen to religious radio
And what of the closeness of
extended families associated
with the South?
Six of the states in the top 10
for highest divorce rates are in
the South. And the Census
Bureau recently reported that
the South is home to 7 of the
top 10 states with the highest
percentages of out-of-wedlock
births. (The Census counts
Delaware and Maryland as
Southern states.)
According to the AP poll,
geographic Southerners
appear to have a higher opinion
of themselves than do others.
Of those asked whether
Southerners were more courte-
ous than other Americans,
55 percent of those living in the
region said yes, while only
35 percent of non-Southerners
felt that way. And non-
Southerners have a much dim-
mer view of race relations in the
From the earliest days of the
Union, social scientists say, the
South emerged as a kind of
"internal other."
"It became kind of like a neg-
ative subreference ... where
any American problem or the
worst American problems
could always be identified with
the South," says Cobb, a histo-
rian at the University of
Georgia. This was the South of
Jim Crow laws, bottom-of-the-
list school test scores, the
backwoods of "Deliverance."
Sometime in the 1970s, the
region morphed into what
author Fred Hobson called the
"suddenly virtuous" South.
Today, many of our notions
about the South seem based on
some long-gone reality. This is
the South of country music
lyrics, carefree Sunbelt retire-
ment, schoolkids who answer
"yes, ma'am."

By AMANDA WILLIAMSON Nationwide, law enforcement agencies report prescription drug abuse as the fastest growing drug problem; but locally and throughout Florida, a crackdown on pill mill clinics means the Sunshine State has become the model child in combating the trend. According to the 2013 National Drug Threat Assessment Summary released by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration last week, controlled prescription drug abuse remains high through out the country with individuals using more CPDs than any other drug, except marijuana. However, Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter doesnt believe the trend carries into Florida or Columbia County. In 2011, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement began a year-long investigation on the states pill mill prob lem through the Drug Enforcement Strike Force. Formerly known as the nations Pill Mill Capital, Floridas prescrip tion drug deaths fell by 9.9 percent dur ing 2012. Gov. Rick Scott and Hunter attribute the decline to a reduction in pill availability. We had people from other states driving our interstates to visit Floridas pill mills, Hunter said. They were toting the stuff out of here like candy. ... We still have an issue with prescription medi cines, but its not as bad as it was. According to a National Survey on Drug Use and Health in 2011, data indicated that 6.1 million people (or 2.7 percent of the population) aged 12 and older currently use psychotherapeutic drugs for nonmedical purposes. Of those 6.1 million, 4.5 million use pain relievers, 1.8 million use tranquilizers and the rest are divided between stimulants and sedatives. Data has not been updated since Floridas investigations on pill mills. When we got the controls in place at the pain clinics, Hunter said, we saw meth start coming back. Nationally, the NDTAS reports that heroin and meth are both on the rise, while cocaine seems to be on its way out. In Columbia County, Hunter said he doesnt see much heroin use. However, he does believe meth espe cially produced through the shake and bake method remains a serious problem in the county. People cook meth to use and to sell it because its cheap to produce and there are high returns, he added. According to the NDTAS, the number of meth users throughout America increased from 2010 to 2011, but remained statistically similar. While the national survey said meth use is more common in the western United States, Hunter believes it is more prominent here than heroin, the other drug pursued by ex-CPD addicts.

Santa Claus is com ing to town on the back of a firetruck during the annual Christmas Parade down Marion Avenue. Held on Dec. 14, the parade starts near Washington Street at 6 p.m. and ends at the Florida Department of Transportation building. Twinkling Christmas lights will adorn the approximate ly 75 floats expected for the evening, said parade chairman Bob Garner. Its a tradition here in Lake City, he said. Everybody enjoys it and expects it. ... The streets are filled. I dont care if the weather is cold. People will come out to see the parade. Sponsored by the Lake City Rotary Club, the annu al parade usually features festive floats decorated with lights and costumed characters, such as rein deer. Last year, some of the floats played Christmas music as they traveled south down Marion Avenue. Meally Jenkins, director of the Christmas Dream Machine, will be the parades Grand Marshal. She is being hon ored for providing 25 years of miracles to so many chil dren, Garner said. [The parade] just looks great after it gets dark with all the lights twinkling and reflecting the colors of the floats, he said, adding that the event really caps off the holiday events in downtown Lake City on the December Saturday eve ning. It all really gets you in the festive, Christmas mood. Snow Day, hosted by the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, brings 30 tons of snow, two snow slides and several childrens activities to the downtown Olustee Park on Dec. 14 hours before the parade weaves its way along Marion. Children will already be downtown with Snow Day, so it just means they can stay around and watch the parade, Garner said. As the only Christmas Parade in town, the event usually draws a big crowd. Interested parade partici pants should submit their application to the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce by Monday, Dec. 2, in order to be included. Entry fees for the parade are $25 for schools, $30 for nonprofits and $60 for businesses, which covers the parade expenses and a local char ity donation. Garner encourages busi nesses and non-profit orga nizations in Lake City to be a part of the parade as a way to share the Christmas spirit with the community.

The new facility, at 1915 SE State Road 100, spans 70,000 square feet and shares a 30-acre campus with three other Champion buildings. New jobs are currently being filled in framing, electrical, plumbing, molding, roofing, siding and dry wall. The hiring process is expected to be complete in December, the release said.

Richard Rubino and Charles Black pleaded guilty to two counts each of possession of a slot machine in Seminole County Court. They were assessed courts costs and given a $50 prosecution charge. Some 13 charges were dropped against Rubino, and 19 charges we dropped against Black, who helped operate four casinos. A sentencing hearing involving several dozen more Allied Veterans defendants is set for Tuesday. Last month, a Florida jury convicted attorney Kelly Mathis of 103 counts for his role in the Allied Veterans organization. He will be sentenced in February.Gov. sued for not releasing records TALLAHASSEE — A new lawsuit says that Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi are failing to turn over public records. Tallahassee attorney Steven Andrews on Monday filed separate lawsuits against Scott, Bondi and the Department of State. The lawsuit contends that the Scott administra-tion altered calendars of one top aide, relied on private email accounts, and waited more than 18 months to hand over text messages of another aide. The lawsuit against Bondi says her office refused to hand over notes from meetings Bondi kept on her iPad. The governor’s office and Bondi’s office did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Andrews has been a persistent critic of Scott. He’s currently battling the state over land near the governor’s mansion where his law offices are located.Police officer delivers surprise MELBOURNE — When a police officer spotted a first grader with shoes that were “flapping in the breeze” during a visit to a Melbourne elementary school, he sprang into action. Florida Today reports the officer asked the girl her shoe size, then returned a short time later with two brand new pairs of shoes — one fuch-sia and the other bright orange — along with matching socks. But he slipped away last week before anyone got his name. Croton Elementary School bookkeeper Renee Carr says the gesture made the little girl’s day. Carr says the girl was “just in heaven” and proudly showed off her new shoes. Carr says the little girl put on the shoes and said, “these are beautiful.”Panther to go on exhibit at zoo WEST PALM BEACH — A 12-year-old Florida panther named Mirasol will go on exhibit in December at the Palm Beach Zoo. The panther — called “Mira” — has been staying in a required quarantine since her arrival at the West Palm Beach zoo in October. Before that, Mira lived at the South Florida Wildlife rehabilitation Center, which closed after its founder was diagnosed with a terminal illness. He contacted the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, which sought placement of the animals living at his shelter. Latest Picoult release is short story NEW YORKJodi Picoult’s latest publica-tion is a short story on a large subject: Race. “We tend to get very itchy and uncomfortable talking about race and to me it’s exactly what we ought to be talking about,” the author of best-sellers such as “My Sister’s Keeper” and “Nineteen Minutes” said in a recent telephone interview. Picoult’s “The Color War” just came out through Byliner, an online publisher that releases brief works of fiction and nonfiction, with authors ranging from Jon Krakauer to Margaret Atwood. “The Color War,” an 8,000-word narrative priced at $1.99, tells of a young boy from the city sent to a Bible camp who becomes fascinated by a white coun-selor, Melody. Picoult said she first thought of the story 20 years ago, when she was teaching in Concord, Mass., outside of Boston, and kids were bused in for what was presum-ably a better education. “I wanted to focus on that dichotomy between the good-hearted white person who is trying to offer charity and yet maybe is pushing on some-one who does not want it or need it,” Picoult says. “Maybe charity is not just about what you can give, but what you can learn from a certain person. That’s something which comes up in this story.”Woman held captive in Cleveland has book deal NEW YORK — One of three young women held captive for years in a Cleveland house has a book deal. Michelle Knight’s memoir is scheduled to come out next spring, pub-lisher Weinstein Books announced Monday. The book is currently untitled and will be co-written by Michelle Burford, who worked on Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas’ memoir. “I want to give every victim of violence a new outlook on life,” Knight said in a statement provided to The Associated Press by the publisher. “Victims need to know that no matter how hard it rains in the darkness, they will have the strength and courage that God gave them when they were born to rise above and overcome any obstacle that stands in their way.” According to Weinstein, Knight will tell the “full story” of being kidnapped in her early 20s by Ariel Castro and held for 11 years. Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus finally escaped last May. Castro, sen-tenced to life plus 1,000 years, hanged himself in his cell in September. Alicia Keys visits typhoon refugees MANILA — Singer Alicia Keys visited a Philippine air force base Monday to bring cheer to hundreds of evacuees from eastern provinces wracked by Typhoon Haiyan. The American singer distributed crayons and coloring books to children at the Villamor Air Base grandstand, where evacuees from eastern Samar provinces arrive via C-130 planes. The Philippine Star earlier quoted her as saying that “music has a way of lifting your spirit and that’s what I hope to do for the Filipino people.” Monday: Afternoon: 3-7-4 Monday: Afternoon: 7-4-0-4 Sunday: 4-8-10-16-29 Correction The Lake City Reporter corrects errors of fact in news items.

By JIM TURNER The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE Florida is about to sail through another hurricane season its eighth consec utive free from a named storm severely pounding the states shores. With Saturday the last official day of this years hurricane season, credit a combination of atmo spheric conditions for keeping down the number of storms that threatened Florida. Even though the storms could generate some fuel from the ocean, more wind shear came in over the Atlantic than we really thought might happen, and there was a lot of Saharan dust that blew off Africa, so there wasnt a whole lot of energy for them to really get strong, state meteorologist Amy Godsey said Monday. The pre-season forecast for the Junethrough-November storm season for the Atlantic and Caribbean was for 12 to 18 named storms, with between six and 10 reaching hurricane status. The Atlantic and Caribbean region did record 13 named storms this year, of which only two grew into hurri canes, both in September and both category 1. Humberto formed off Cape Verde, while the deadly Ingrid landed in Tamaulipas, Mexico. The number of hurri canes was the lowest for a year in the Atlantic since 1994, Godsey said. Godsey said its just a matter of luck for Florida, which has avoided hurri canes since the 2004 and 2005 seasons when seven hit the state. If the ocean currents and steering currents and the atmosphere were just shifted a little bit, those two hurricanes might have come to the United States, she said. So it could have been a very different year for us if just a few things had been tweaked. The first of the named tropical storms this year did cause some wide spread flooding in South Florida, while two other tropical systems provided a few moments of con cern for emergency man agers. We started off with tropical storm Andrea and we thought we were in for the long haul, but it turned out to be one of the quietest years on record, which were pleased about, said Bryan Koons, director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management. Every year that Florida doesnt have a hurri cane is better for the citizens of Florida. Andrea swept through the Big Bend the first week in June, with its outer bands dumping more than 13 inches of rain into areas of South Florida. But afterward, the sea son was relatively calm for Floridians. In early August, tropical storm Dorian regenerated into a tropical depression just east of Florida, while tropical storm Karen did threaten the Gulf Coast --causing the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the U.S. Department of Interior to call furloughed work ers back from the federal government shutdown --before breaking up prior to reaching Northwest Florida in early October. The lack of Florida impacts is good news for property owners, as the states Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund, which provides back-up cov erage for insurers, has reached what is consid ered its best-ever fiscal shape. The growth in financial reserves also provides a cushion in the event claims need to be paid in coastal areas by the statebacked Citizens Property Insurance Corporation. If Citizens or the catastrophe fund dont have enough money in reserves to pay hurricane claims, property owners throughout the state can get hit with extra charges known as assess ments. We are stronger as an overall insurance system, able to quickly handle claims from most hurricanes and with out or with lower state wide assessments, Sam Miller, executive vice president of the Florida Insurance Council, said in an email.

Its the old stand-by, Hunter said. Thats one drug that has been around for a long time. We still have marijuana use in our area... We are still working to com bat it. According to the 2013 NDTAS, 88.2 percent of all responding agencies sur veyed reported that mari juana availability was high in their area. But the availability is matched by high levels of demand. Data suggests that more individuals reported using marijuana in 2011 than all other drugs combined, the NDTAS states. Hunter said he is con cerned by a movement to legalize medical marijuana, and the Florida Sheriffs Association is opposed to the idea. The national report adds that between 2006 and 2010 there was an 59 percent increase in marijuana-related emergency department vis its. However, it all states that there is a decline in the per centage of 8th, 10th and 12th graders who view marijuana as a high-risk behavior. To me, it tends to be a gateway drug, Hunter said. Younger people are experi menting with drugs. The K2 (a form of synthetic marijua na) market targets the youth, but we got in front of that. It just took us a couple years. Originally marketed as legal alternatives to mari juana, synthetic cannabinoid products have increased exponentially since 2008. In 2012, the NDTAS lists 29,467 synthetic cannabinoid drug reports, compared to 21 in 2009. be decorated in this years theme, Miracle on Marion, which can be done through whimsi cal, holiday or childrens decorations.

From staff reports An adult and two juve niles, one of the juveniles reported as a runaway, were arrested and face multiple charges for going into an abandoned residence. Bruce Lavalle Henderson, 27, 399 NW Bascom Norris Drive, was charged with interfering with the custody of a minor, burglary of an unoccupied dwelling (unarmed), tres passing and contributing to the delinquency of a minor in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility. Authorities did not release the names or ages of the juveniles in the case. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, Deputy Joshua Samson, was dispatched to a Doe Run Glen address Wednesday in reference to a burglary. While he was responding to the scene, dispatch told him that three males were seen entering an abandoned residence and they were trespassing. When Samson arrived he saw two black males and one white male exit the resi dence through a bedroom window at the back of the residence. All three sub jects were detained and handcuffed. Although the residence is abandoned and was left unlocked, reports said, and the suspects were able to go in through the front door. One of the juveniles told Samson they just entered the residence and planned on staying the day there. The sheriffs office dis patched advised Samson that the youngster was reported as missing/run away. Police reports did not say how long the juve nile had been missing. Authorities contacted the childs guardian and advised he had been arrest ed and she would need to make arrangements to pick him up. The other juvenile told Samson he was just hang ing out for the day and they had just gone into the residence. Samson also contacted his guardian and informed her that he had been arrested and she would need to make arrangements to pick him up. Henderson was taken to jail without incident, reports said.

BY EMAIL: Tigers, Indians deliver TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1789, Nov. 26 was a day of thanksgiving set aside by President George Washington to observe the adop-tion of the Constitution of the United States. In 1825, the first college social fraternity, the Kappa Alpha Society, was formed at Union College in Schenectady, N.Y. In 1933, a judge in New York decided the James Joyce book “Ulysses” was not obscene and could be published in the United States. In 1941, a Japanese naval task force consisting of six aircraft carriers left the Kuril Islands, headed toward Hawaii. In 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered nationwide gasoline rationing, beginning Dec. 1. In 1943, during World War II, the HMT Rohna, a British transport ship carrying American soldiers, was hit by a German missile off Algeria; 1,138 men were killed. In 1950, China entered the Korean War, launching a counteroffensive against soldiers from the United Nations, the U.S. and South Korea. On the loudmouth in the next seat Surely Las Vegas sports books and London bookies will be offering odds on when and on which airline the first fight breaks out if the Federal Communications Commission goes ahead with a proposal to allow virtually unrestricted cell-phone use aboard commercial airliners. As The Wall Street Journal pointed out, the proposal pits “the technically possible against the socially tolerable” and we know who usually comes out the loser in that particular debate. Indeed, the FCC tipped its hand when the agency said it would use the public comment period “to review our outdated and restrictive rules.” The FCC proposed lifting the 1991-era ban in 1994 but backed off because of opposition from the flight atten-dants and a number of technical questions. The technical questions have since been resolved but the flight attendants still oppose in-flight cellphone use and so do a slight majority of the flying public; a Federal Aviation Administration survey showed 51 percent opposed to 47 percent in favor. Other nation’s airlines are equipped with cellphone technol-ogy but require their passengers to turn off their phones when they enter U.S. airspace. But cell-phones have become ubiquitous in the U.S. and it is probably only a matter of months before their use is allowed aboard our airlin-ers. The decision about their use is likely to be left to the individual airlines but like charging for checked baggage, as soon as one does it the others will fol-low. Airline passengers have become a cynical lot. One frequent flier wondered what would happen if a passenger locked himself in one of the handful of bathrooms to carry on a sustained private conversa-tion. And others have suggested that the airlines will charge extra for the privilege of using a cellphone in flight and charge extra for a seat that is out of earshot of a pas-senger carrying on an obnoxiously loud conversation. In today’s air travel, one way or another you pay.Obamacare’s fatal conceit I have lined up my Christmas presents this year for our President, Barack Obama, and for his Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius. I will send them both a copy of the last book written by one of greatest economists of the last century, and winner of the Nobel Prize in economics in 1974, F.A. Hayek. The book is called “The Fatal Conceit: The Errors of Socialism.” Although the language and discussion of the book is not all that simple, the basic point is, I think, pretty straightforward. Hayek summed it all up in his acceptance speech for his Nobel Prize. He noted the critical importance that we know what we don’t know. Thinking you know what you don’t and can’t know, the illusion that men can plan, organize, and con-trol things far beyond their under-standing, is the “fatal conceit” of socialism. And, Hayek concludes, that knowing what you don’t know, “ought to teach the student of society a lesson of humility which should guard him against becom-ing an accomplice in men’s fatal striving to control society – a striv-ing which makes him not only a tyrant over his fellow, but which may well make him the destroyer of a civilization which no brain has designed but which has grown from the free efforts of millions of individuals.” Take a walk through the mall or the supermarket. Look at the almost infinite varieties of products in stores and on shelves designed and engineered to meet the unique tastes and desires of millions of different individuals. You don’t need a Nobel Prize or a Ph.D to appreciate that no supreme bureaucrat with all the power in the world could ever conceive that vast array of prod-ucts and decide they should be produced. This is the product and beauty of freedom. Free people deciding what they want and living how they want. And free people deciding to take risk, go into business, and become entrepreneurs and produce and deliver these many varied prod-ucts. This approach – freedom – has produced bounty as never has been produced anywhere under any other arrangement. But the “fatal conceit” is a powerful force. It is a powerful force because there will always be haughty, arro-gant people for whom humility is a challenge and who are convinced that the world would be better off if they designed it rather than let-ting free private individuals run their own lives. This is totally what the debacle we now confront with the Affordable Care Act – ObamaCare – is about. Anyone who follows these things and knows just a little bit of history knew from the day President Obama signed this law in 2010 that what is happening today was inevitable. Neither President Obama nor HHS Secretary Sebelius have ever done anything in their lives except work in one way or anoth-er in politics. Neither has ever run a small business, let alone a big one. Neither has a day of experience of being an entrepre-neur, of taking personal risk and taking a loan to make a product to serve customers and to meet a payroll. But both have been supremely confident that they could take over and redesign one sixth of a 16 tril-lion dollar economy. Nothing is more unique to each individual than his or her personal health profile and needs. Yet a couple supreme bureaucrats in Washington have used their power to decide what kind of health care hundreds of millions of unique American indi-vidual citizens need and how to deliver it. Can it be any wonder that it is all collapsing? The only wonders are that there are still those who maintain that this socialist monstrosity can still work and that so many Americans have been willing to give up their precious personal freedom and turn their lives over to arrogant, pretentious, and deeply confused bureaucrats and politicians in Washington. N either team went as far as they’d have liked in the state playoffs this year, but the football programs at Columbia and Fort White high schools have plenty to be proud of nonetheless. We’re certainly proud of them.The Tigers finished at 10-2, the Indians, 7-2. More than that, they played with integrity, character and sportsmanship. Credit that to the players themselves, but also to the fine example set by the top man at each program. Brian Allen and Demetric Jackson have shown themselves to be winners in the way they conduct themselves both on the field and off. What impresses us every bit as much as their football prowess is their dogged determination to mold the young men in their care into responsible, disciplined adults. In that regard – as well as other, more obvious ones – two highly successful sea-sons, from two men who epitomize what it means to be a leader.

Our enrollment in the pro grams had declined, and there wasnt a lot of train ing requested from busi ness and industry. Dr. Hall wanted to see if there was a demand for these non-cred it type training and educa tion programs again in the FGC service region. If there is, these pro grams will likely continue, and we could begin offer ing more in the coming months, she said. Some of the programs will be offered on a nightly, once-a-week basis for sever al weeks, while others will take place over the course of back-to-back nights. The schedule for these pro grams will be released in the coming weeks.

Each 1st grader also gave a personal account of what they are thank-ful for. What an incredible job they did! Also on Thursday, ‘Clifford the Big Red Dog’ made a special appearance at Family Reading Night.

It was a disappointing end to a season that start ed without much expecta tion after the loss of 23 seniors, but turned into another Tigers team look ing to challenge for a state championship. The Bears had other plans, derailing Columbias chances in a 29-24 win dur ing the Region 1 semifinals. Columbia says goodbye to 12 seniors including Trey Marshall, who has com mitted to Florida State. But there are still good things to come for the Tigers. Columbia has a host of young players com ing back including running back Lonnie Underwood, who will be the leader of the 2014 squad in his senior campaign. Underwood rushed for 1,433 yards this sea son and a school record 30 touchdowns in a single season. The Tigers will also have a winning leader back over the head of the program with Brian Allen in his fourth year. He made a promise to the Tigers after Fridays defeat. I will go to my death By TIM KIRBY FORT WHITE Fort White Highs football opponent that advanced the farthest in the playoffs was one the Indians didnt get a chance to play.

The Heisman Trophy candidate continues to put any distractions of an ongo-ing sexual assault inves-tigation aside when he steps on the field, though he is still waiting to learn if he will be charged. Winston helped secondranked Florida State roll to 80-14 win against Idaho on Saturday. The Seminoles capped off their first 11-0 start since winning the national championship in 1999. “The football field is a sanctuary to me,” Winston said. “... When all of us are on the field everything is just zoned out.” Florida State has set several school records behind Winston and all that stands between the Seminoles and an unde-feated regular season is 60 minutes against struggling rival Florida this week. Whether Winston will continue to be the quarter-back is unclear. State Attorney Willie Meggs told the Associated Press it is unlikely that a final decision will be made before Thanksgiving on whether to charge the 19-year-old Winston. The family of the accuser issued a statement through attorney Patricia Carroll, saying Winston raped the woman on Dec. 7, 2012. Winston’s lawyer Tim Jansen has suggested the sex between the two was consensual. On the field, Winston remains a leading Heisman Trophy candi-date after throwing for 225 yards and four touch-downs against the Vandals and the Seminoles are two wins away from a likely berth in the BCS champi-onship game. “I mentally prepare myself for football ... always football,” said Winston, who signed auto-graphs for Seminoles fans as he walked off the field on Saturday. The Seminoles will prepare for a Gators team (4-7) in the midst of its first losing season since going 0-10 in 1979 and coming off its first loss to an FCS team in school history. The Gators will have their hands full against Florida State, which just keeps rolling along. The Seminoles have set the ACC singleseason scoring record with 607 points. Florida State’s streak of 11 consecutive games scoring 40 points or more ties Texas’ 2005 single-season FBS record. Florida State has been adept at staying focused, even against lesser oppo-nents. But the Gators will desperately want to redeem themselves after losing to Georgia Southern at home. “Just because they lost to another team doesn’t mean they’re not going to come to play hard against us,” Florida State running back Devonta Freeman said. “If we let up they might hit us in the mouth, but we ain’t letting up. “I know for a fact we ain’t going to let up.” There hasn’t been this much of a disparity between the two programs since 2009. “At the end of the day they’re still the University of Florida and they’re going to come out and play us hard, probably harder than any other team that we play,” Florida State nose guard Timmy Jernigan said. bed trying to make this team a winner,” Allen said. In large part, he’s already made the Tigers back into a winner. On top of this year’s 10-2 campaign, Allen has a 29-8 record with the Tigers. He started his coaching ten-ure with an 8-4 season and had an 11-2 record in 2012. He’s coached the Tigers to three playoff appearances. Besides turning the Tigers into winners on the field, Allen feels that he’s maturing young men off the field. “Some of these young men will go on to play col-lege football,” Allen said after Friday’s game. “They’ll be ready. Others will move on in life. I can promise you that they can take every-thing they’ve learned here and they will be ready.” And you can bet that Allen will have the Tigers ready for another winning campaign next season. Biggest Iron Bowl everAssociated PressAUBURN, Ala. — Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron insists Auburn is merely “the next team in our way,” whatever the Tigers’ record. Auburn H-back Jay Prosch says preparation for this Iron Bowl has felt like any other game so far. The hundreds of RVs already parked down the street from Jordan-Hare Stadium a week before kickoff offered a different perspective. Business-as-usual denials aside, No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Auburn are prepar-ing for perhaps the biggest game ever in this rabid in-state rivalry on Saturday. Both teams are contenders going into this one, but Auburn needs help. Nick Saban’s Alabama team controls its own des-tiny in the program’s pur-suit of a third straight BCS championship and fourth in five years.




DEAR ABBY: May I address a question you printed on July 24? “Where Are the Good Guys?” has trouble meeting men and wrote about seeking sexual partners on Craigslist. You answered that there were no good men there. Well, I met my boyfriend of two years through a “no strings attached” ad I posted on Craigslist. It turns out we had a strong attraction and chemistry, and he’s one of my best friends. So what if we were adults who wanted a casual relationship to start with? Don’t judge everyone that way. The reason that woman is having problems is she’s using the site to find sex partners when she really wants more. She needs to look in the “relationship” section or on a relation-ship site. Don’t blame men for wanting to have sex when that’s what she’s advertising. They aren’t all “bad.” They are actually more truthful than she is. — HAPPILY COUPLED IN OMAHA DEAR HAPPILY COUPLED: I heard from many readers who described successful relationships that started online. I did not mean to imply that there are no good men on Craigslist. My concern was the writer was looking for a meaningful, lasting relation-ship in a category where people look for casual sex. Others identified with “W.A.T.G.G.’s” problem and were quick to offer their views: DEAR ABBY: I’m a female, 59, and like the woman in that letter, also not considered beautiful. But I do have two very good men friends in my life, and I met them both online. There ARE men of quality out there. You just have to be careful and read between the lines. Abby, online personals are the new “bar scene.” — DONNA IN MISSOURI DEAR ABBY: While I agree with you that she should talk to a psycholo-gist about her low self-esteem, it IS possible to find a true partner online IF you are dedicated and serious. I subscribed to a dating service 3 1/2 years ago and met a wonderful woman on the site. We are married now and expecting our first baby. — HAPPY HUSBAND IN MIAMI DEAR ABBY: “Where Are the Good Guys?” says she’s “not beautiful by any means,” and that means meeting good guys won’t happen. That is SO not the case! I was a homecoming queen and have always been attractive, but many of the men I dated married plainer women because they were looking for wife-and-mother types and not a high-maintenance beauty queen. You don’t meet the “right” men because of your looks; you meet them in the right PLACES where you have common interests -church, volun-teer work and all the other places that Dear Abby keeps telling folks about! — RUTH IN VIRGINIA DEAR ABBY: I’m a “good guy,” and there are many other guys like me. If she would put in the time and effort to talk to one of us, get to know us, she will find what she’s looking for. I am so sick of women saying they want a nice guy and then run-ning in the opposite direc-tion. Her words say one thing, but her actions say something else. — OUT HERE WAITING IN CLEVELAND DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Your ability to multitask may be com-promised. Back up and do what’s most important with the outmost finesse. You’ll be judged by the quality you offer, not the quantity. Changes at home will end up being costly. Stick to a budget. +++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Update your image and send a signal. Being current will help you convey what you have to offer with a very upbeat and progressive feel that will surely grab positive attention. It’s your turn to shine. +++++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): You will be attracted to the unfamiliar. Before traveling into the unknown, think twice. You are likely to encoun-ter opposition. Do your research and make your plans carefully. A differ-ence of opinion will lead to an emotional setback. ++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Gravitate toward people who are for-ward thinking and head-ing in a positive direction. By aligning yourself with upbeat front-runners, you will discover valuable infor-mation that will enable you to test your skills in diverse ways. Love is in the stars. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may feel adventuresome or in need of a change, but take your time to clear up any problems or responsibilities you’ve left undone. A money deal will not be as prosperous as someone leads you to believe. Do your own fact-finding. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22): Your emotions will surface, prompting you to make a move. Step up to the plate and say what’s on your mind. Love, romance and inter-acting with others will lead to positive results and perks if you share your thoughts. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll be forced to deal with personal issues. Clear the air before the situation gets out of con-trol. Compromise is fine, but don’t give too much for too little just to keep the peace or nothing will end up being resolved. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Positive changes to your residence will lift your spirits and moti-vate you to work harder and do more with the ones you love. Learn from the people you encounter and the different ways that people live and you will prosper. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep a low profile, stick close to home and do things that will make your life easier and your home more endearing. Don’t expect everyone to agree with the way you do things. An emotional argument is best to avoid. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Step into any challenge you face with confidence. Your ability to handle what-ever comes your way will impress as well as lead to a proposal that can increase your earning potential. Wheel and deal personally and profession-ally. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): You are best to go it alone or remain quiet regarding your plans. A lack of information will contribute to the problems you encounter. To get the upper hand, listen, observe and ask pointed questions, then proceed using an element of sur-prise. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Don’t let love or emotional encoun-ters cloud your vision or cause you to miss out on a money deal that could make your life easier. Follow the path that you feel will bring you the highest return. A partner-ship must be handled carefully. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
