M ore than
70 people
attended a
Chamber
of
Commerce informational
meeting Thursday after-
noon to get details about a
potential privately owned
and operated prison which
may come to the area.
The meeting, which lasted
more than 90 minutes, fea-
tured prison consultant Bill
Bryan, Municipal Capital
Markets executive vice
president Michael Harling
and Community Education
Centers senior vice, president
of administration and opera-
tional support Mike Pelletier,
as the panel which fielded
questions from citizens.
After initial introduc-
tions, residents asked
questions about the
proposed facility's fund-
ing, local infrastructure,
inmates, how local or
federal tax dollars would
be used in the facility as
well as concerns about
the inmates' families
being served or supported
through local services.
The Federal Bureau of
Prisons is considering con-
tracting with one or more
contractors to build a private-
ly owned and operated cor-
rectional facility in Columbia
County. The facility could
house up to 1,250 adult, male
low-security inmates until
then can be deported.
Harling, who is hop-
ing to finance the project,
explained how no county
tax dollars would be used
in the construction of the
facility and also told the
audience that he is uncer-
tain who the specific own-
ers of the facility would be.
According to him, the con-
tract could be purchased by
real estate investment trust.


PRISON OPTIONS
* Federal Bureau of Prisons may contrit, with one or more contractors tb build a
pr atei, -owned and operated 1,250 bed'faciltv in Columbia County. ...
* A site in Baldwin, Mich., also is being corni.dered.There is a facility in, Bad.A in that
would serve as the prison's home. ,: : .


Bill Bryan, the president of Detain Inc. and a prison consultant, answers questions made by
concerned citizens during the Chamber of Commerce meeting on Thursday. More than 70
people attended the meeting where a presentation clarifying citizens' concerns were made.
Also pictured are Michael Harling (from left), Municipal Capital Market executive vice presi-
dent, and Community Education Centers senior vice president Mike Pelletier.


Community Education
Centers plans to operate
the facility and Pelletier
gave a timeline of how
Columbia County was cho-
sen as a potential site and
how the other sites were
eliminated. According to
Pelletier, when the Federal
Bureau of Prisons released
a Request For Proposal
listing their needs for
additional prison space, 22
projects were considered
as possible locations.
Columbia County
Commission Chairman Ron
Williams said the county
commission reserves the
right to support or not sup-
port the proposal depending
on the information received


from additional research.
Plum Creek representa-
tive for the southern region
Todd Powell said the facil-
ity's location could poten-
tially affect the Catalyst site,
and Rural Area of Critical
Concern site.
'The only way the
property can be accessed
is actually right through
the middle of the Plum
Creek land use amend-
ment that was approved
by the county commission
in November - that's the
only access to the site," he
said. "When you look at
our initial plan of a mixed
use type community, there
is going to be conflict when
you think of work-force


housing residential units
with having with a prison
border rightup to that."

directors president Chris.
Bullard the meeting went
well and people were
pleased to have some of
their questions about the '
facility answered.
'The purpose of this
meeting was information-.
al," he said. "The Chamber
of Commerce really hasn't
had a forum for its mem-
bers to express their opin-
ions and have questions
answered. I doubt we'll
come out with an opinion
from this meeting."

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS


LOS ANGELE:
The future keeps calling
for Zoe Saldana and Sam
Worthington.
They had breakout
hits last summer in estab-
lished science-fiction franchises,
she in "Star Trek," set in the bright
human future of the 23rd century,
he in 'Terminator Salvation," set in
an apocalyptic wasteland a couple of
decades from now.
Now they have a potential sci-
fi franchise of their own in James
Cameron's "Avatar," a 22nd-century
space epic that casts them in a love
story involving a 10-foot-tall blue
alien and a paralyzed human inhabit-
ing a similar body engineered in the
laboratory.
Both had been on a gradual rise
in Hollywood but were relative
unknowns when Cameron cast them
as the leads for "Avatar," his first
narrative film since 1997's 'Titanic."
After completing the bulk of the
work on "Avatar," Saldana went off
to co-star as communications offi-
cer Uhura in J.J. Abrams' revival
of "Star Trek," while Worthington
starred alongside Christian Bale
in 'Terminator Salvation," a con-
tinuation of the franchise Cameron
started.

Locals weigh in on prison


By LEANNE TYO
Ityo@lakecilyreporter.comr

Members of the com-
munity had the opportunity
to express their concerns
about the proposed prison
at an informational meeting
provided by the chamber of
commerce Thursday at Lake
City Community College.
Most citizens gave state-
ments and posed questions
on issues such as the pos-
sibility of their tax dollars
funding the project.
' The whole community
has been misled," said TC.


Gray of Lake City. "It might
not be local tax money but
it will be federal tax money
coming from our pockets.
Ultimately that same money
will be used to build the
prison."
Donna Fagan, executive
director of Another Way,
Inc., expressed concern on
how the community would
serve the families that the
inmates of the prison could
possibly bring with them.
"This community is going
to have to find a way to take
care of the inmates' loved
ones," said Fagan.


However, members of
the community were happy
to be provided with more
information about the pro-
posed prison through this
meeting.
Stephen Douglas, owner
of Mini Storage and Record
Storage in Lake City, said
whether the information
presented was good or bad,
getting the information is
what's important.
"I'm very happy the
chamber had this meeting
to get more information,"
he said. "Information is
always good."

By LEANNE TYO
Ityo@lakecityreporter.com

The Columbia
County Board of County
Commissioners voted unan-
imously to 'approve the new
Fort White branch library
floor plan and to authorize

The new branch will be
located a short distance
off of State Road 47 and
the building will comprise
approximately 5,000 square
feet, said Dale Williams,


CHAMBER
Continued From Page 1A
ence, said Chris Bullard,
Chamber president.
"The Board of Directors
believe she will do an excel-
lent job for the Chamber in
the future," he said.
The executive direc-
tor controls the day-to-day
activities of the chamber
and helps the local business
environment thrive, Bullard
said.
Roberts-Folsom said she
and the board will meet at
the beginning of the year to
go over the strategic plan
for the chamber that will be
put into place.
"I'm excited about start-
ing work and making a dif-
ference," she said.
She has also expressed
an interest in reaching out
to the younger business
people in the community
as well as drawing more
members to the Chamber
through social and infor-
mational functions, Bullard
said.
A meet and greet will be
held in the future to intro-
duce the community to
Roberts-Folsom.
"The Board of Directors
is excited to have a young,
vibrant executive director,"
Bullard said. "We believe she
holds great promise for the
Chamber of Commerce."

He also said the new
facility will have a signifi-
cant amount of shelving for
books, an increase in space
for computers, a small cafe
and 42 parking spaces.
"It's going to be a nice
modern building which
people in the south end
of the county very much
deserve," said Williams.
Williams said the budget
'for the project is $800,000,
and the financing will come
entirely from Columbia
County.


The county commission
had $300,000, budgeted
already, and will pay the
other $500,000 with funds
from the end of year bal-
ance from fiscal years 2008
and 2009, Williams said.
The new library branch
will certainly be an
asset to Fort White, said
Williams.
"You can't understate the
importance of a library," he
said. "In terms of how it
compares to what we have,
it will be a welcomed addi-
tion."


Columbia County
Commission Chair Ron
Williams gestures during
Thursday night's county com-
mission meeting. The county
approved the floor plans for a
new library in Fort White and
authorized bidding for the
project.

On campus, it's where the boys aren't


he 1960s iconic
movie, "Where the
Boys Are," follows
four Midwestern
coeds on a spring
break venture to Ft. Lauderdale,
Fla. in pursuit of sun, fun and
romance. The movie ends on a
sobering note as one of the four,
apparently sexually assaulted by
a college man, is in the hospital
being cared for by another of
.the foursome.
Back in the '60s there were
many fewer coed colleges and
(one can hazard a guess) few if
any coed dorms. So college girls
did have to travel to where the
boys were. Now they have men
on campus, but if the movie
were to be remade today, a
more appropriate title might be,
"Where the Boys Aren't."
"Over the past 40 years,
women have gone from under-
represented minority to over-
represented majority on U.S.
college campuses, where they
outnumber men by a proportion
approaching 60-40. Barriers that
kept women from college have
been swept away, and schol-
arly focus has shifted to the
impediments facing men, who
are more likely to drop out of
school and more apt to go into
the military, manual-labor jobs
or prison."
This is truer at liberal arts
colleges than it is at technical,
computer or science and engi-
neering schools. It is also less
true at Ivy League institutions,
where young men still circle
to gain entrance in numbers
equal to the young women.who

LETTERS TO

Successful food drive
highlights need
To the Editor:
On behalf of the Food Bank
of Suwannee Valley, we would
like to thank the management
and employees of the Lake City
Reporter, your subscribers,
the citizens of Lake City and
Columbia County, and the many
businesses and organizations in
our area for their hard work in,
making this year's food drive a
great success.
Again this year, the Food
Bank of Suwannee Valley has
had a record-setting year in food
distribution to our agencies,
providing over 600,000 pounds
of food. While this is wonder-
ful in that we have been able to
supply food for those in need, it
is also our prayer that some day
we will be successful in wiping
out hunger, and we can direct
our efforts into other areas!
We are finding it necessary
to go further in search of food,
pay more to get that food, and
pay more to have it transported
to the food bank. Any time our
friends and neighbors come
together to donate bags and
boxes of food it helps greatly
with our already over-burdened
budget. But in addition to that,
we teach our children to share
of our abundance with our
friends and neighbors.
The contributions of canned
goods, and the hard work of
everyone involved in the orga-
nization of the can drive at the
Lake City Reporter will go a long
way in helping those in need to

ratio approaches 60-40 female
male. Civil rights investigators,
according to the Washington
Post, are launching an investi-
gation to see if girls are being
discriminated against in col-
lege admissions. At some area
institutions (and byinference at
schools nationwide) the number
of female applicants admitted is
a much lower percentage of the
applicant pool than the percent-
age of male 'applicants admitted.
What's a college to do? No
one has yet deciphered the tip-
ping point at which colleges
become unappealing to would-
be applicants based on gender
ratio. But as one who graduated
from a coed university, I know
it would have felt weird if the
campus were overwhelmed with
either, say, 70 percent of either
gender.
If more young women are
applying to liberal arts schools
(as they are) schools have little
they can do to level the percent-
age in the student body other
than make competition tougher
for female applicants. The rea-
son more women are going to
liberal arts colleges is they do
not apply in as-great percent-
ages to intense science, math
and engineering programs.
More young men apply to those

'Wreaths' coverage
was well-deserved
To the Editor:
A special thanks to the
Lake City Reporter for cover-
ing Wreaths Across America
("Joining ranks across
America," Dec. 13) and every-
one who attended Wreaths
Across America who braved the
cold and rain.
On Dec. 12, Wreaths Across
America was celebrated at
Olustee Park to honor five
branches of the military, those


schools and go on to higher-
paying jobs in engineering and
technology as a result. Other
young men, who can get highly
paid physical labor jobs (con-
struction, plumbing, etc.) don't
bother going to college at all.
Perhaps small to medium lib-
eral arts colleges need to build
better engineering departments
to lure more young men to
apply. Or they can merge with a
local vocational school to bring
its rating up to college degree-
conferring level.
I don't see what.other choices
these liberal arts schools have,
other than to slowly get to the
point where they are 80 percent
female and above. American
University in Washington, D.C.
is now about 60-40 female-male,
and a spokesperson told the
Post that it's not affecting the
number of applicants the' school
receives. The school, in turn,
embraces its female majority I
and continues to thrive.
Maybe all liberal arts colleges
will have the same experience.
But I suspect that will only work
for schools in or near big cities,
where students still have a large
pool of members of the other
gender to meet nearby. At some
point for small town schools, if
the student body tips heavily.to
a place "where the boys aren't,"
over time those schools stand to
lose the majority of their female
applicants as well as their male
applicants.

memories


at a family recep-
tion shows my
three brothers and
me in dark suits,
standing side-by-side like an
a cappella quartet. Curiously,
it occurs to me, each of us,
except my oldest brother, had
at one time or other played
Santa Claus.
My youngest brother
George was a department
store Santa for a couple of
years. The most athletic of
us, he could lift kids onto and
off his lap all day long as they
placed their toy orders..
My brother Jaime was the
celebrity 14-foot-tall Santa
Claus when he was in college.
He walked a mall, manipulat-
ing the upper body like a
marionette from the inside. He
learned how to choreograph
walking and pulling the ropes
and putting up with a monoto-
nous recording, while handlers
kept kids and adults at a dis-
tance.
Over a decade ago, I was the
Santa Claus of Yelm, a small
town east of Tacoma, Wash., a
forested area that in December
is snowy. I had friends who
retired to a lakefront property
and owned the town's Chief
Tavern. They invited me to
spend Christmas and' then
shared their motive. To deliver
presents, on Christmas Eve,
they needed someone none of
the local kids could identify.
As Yelm's Santa for three
seasons, my duties were to go
to the homes of very young
children whose parents had
left gifts at the tavern for me to
deliver.
Barkeeper John Carpenter
had the list of 15 to 20 homes
ready. We set out on our
appointed rounds around 8
p.m. in a red VW beetle.
For the next three hours,
John would drop me off near
each recipient's house, provid-
ing me with the names I need-
ed to know, and lifting a red
sack onto my back. Invariably,
each home had snacks and
refreshments, a shot of this
and a gulp of that, waiting. The
children who were awakened
were suddenly shy at this
beyond-belief sight. Near the
end of the run, the Santa was
unusually jovial.
Meanwhile, those Yelm
residents with no families
and nowhere else to go met
at the Chief Tavern to while
away the hours over adult liba-
tions. Then Santa would burst
through the door, yelling that
he had lost the damn reindeer.
The men went golly-gee
mystified. Lonely women
insisted on buying Santa a
drink and slow dancing to
jukebox country songs or to sit
on his lap to tell him what they
wanted for Christmas. Many of
them cried.
Everyone, including Santa,
suspended reality. We all
sang Feliz Navidad like Jose
Feliciano and formed a conga
line. Next, the town marshal,
whose office was next door,
would come over to see what
the yelling was all about. Then
I was gone, leaving the boys
and girls wondering, who that
was?
I did that the next year and
the one after that and then I
was gone, too.
Only once afterward, for a
children's center, did I don the
suit, just like two of my three
brothers. From behind the
beard, I witnessed again how
parents and other adults for
a moment suspend disbelief
and pretend they do it for the
children.

Health care revamp in doubt?


By DAVID ESPO
AP Special Correspondent

WASHINGTON - A
year in the making, sweep-
ing health care legisla-
tion backed by President-
Barack Obama hung in the
balance Thursday as con-
servative Democratic Sen.
Ben Nelson withheld his
vote in pursuit of stricter
abortion limits and liber-
als grew restive on the
left.
Any lingering hopes the
bill's supporters had of a
Republican casting a critical
60th vote vanished when
Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-
Maine, said after a meet-
ing with Obama that the
Democrats' timetable for
a pre-Christmas vote was
"totally unrealistic."
Nelson, the most con-
servative Democrat in
the Senate, was vague
throughout the day about
his intentions, eventually
telling reporters, "I hope
we're getting closer" to
agreement.
"Without modifications,
the language concerning
abortion is not sufficient,"
he said earlier in the day in a
written statement that sum-
marized the results of days

Stocks fall

as dollar

gains

By TIM PARADISE
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK - A stron-
ger dollar and -disappoint-
ing corporate news muscled
stocks lower Thursday over
concerns that the economy
will struggle to recover.
Major ,stock indexes
slid more than 1 percent,
including the Dow Jones
industrial average,, which
fell 133 points for its third
straight loss. Treasury pric-
es jumped.
The dollar climbed to a
three-month high against
the euro, a sign inves-
tors were seeking safety.
Investor confidence was
further sapped as Citigroup
Inc. sold stock at a steep
discount as.part of a plan
to repay government loans
and a forecast from FedEx
Corp. fell short of expecta-
tions.
More downbeat news
came in on the economy
as the government reported
an unexpected rise in unem-
ployment claims. The num-
ber of new jobless claims
rose to 480,000 last week,
up 7,000 from the previous
week.
Stocks could get a boost
Friday from BlackBerry
maker Research In Motion
Ltd. and software company
Oracle Corp., which each
posted quarterly profits after
the closing bell Thursday
that topped expectations.
The slide Thursday came
as the dollar rose, which
cuts into profits of U.S.
companies that do business
abroad. The euro slumped
after Standard & Poor's
lowered its debt rating on
Greece, the latest European
country to have credit prob-
lems.
A pair of improved eco-
nomic reports did little to
shore up the market.

of private negotiations. The
second-term Nebraskan
opposes the procedure and
wants tighter restrictions
written into the overhaul.
With Nelson's support,
the White House and Senate
Democrats would command
60 votes for the health care
measure, enough to over-
come a Republican filibus-
ter and pass the bill within
a matter of days.
Without it, the prospects
are far more uncertain,
given unyielding Republican


opposition on the conserva-
tive right as well as growing
expressions of unhappiness
on the left that sent the
White House scrambling.
'The absolute refusal of
Republicans in the Senate to
support health care reform.
and the hijacking of the bill
by defenders of the insur-
ance industry have brought
us a Senate bill that is inad-
equate," Richard Trumka,
head of the AFL-CIO, said
in a statement.
His criticism of GOP law-


makers aside, Trumka's
blast seemed aimed at
Nelson, Joe Lieberman, I-
Conn., and possibly other
members of the Senate
Democratic caucus who
have successfully stripped
the legislation of any form
of government-run insur-
ance option.
Andrew Stern, head of
the Service Employees
International Union, . said
he, too, was deeply. disap-
pointed in the bill.
But like Trumka, he
stopped short of urging
its defeat. Not so Howard
Dean, the former national
party chairman, who has
said he would oppose the
legislation because it does
not include a strong enough
role for the government in
a remade health care sys-
tem. Dean unleashed his
criticism this week after
Lieberman won the deletion
of a proposed expansion of
Medicare from the bill.
. Overall, the legislation is
designed to, extend cover-
age to millions who lack
it, ban insurance company
practices such as denying
coverage because of pre-
existing conditions and
slow the rise in medical
spending nationwide.

U.S. aid offer boosts

deal at climate talks


By ARTHUR MAX
Associated Press

COPENHAGEN - Large
pieces of a climate deal fell
into place Thursday with
new offers from the U.S. and
China, but other tough issues
remained before President
Barack Obama and other lead-
ers can sign off on a political
accord to contain the threat of
an overheated world.
An announcement by


Secretary of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton that the.
United States would contrib-
ute to a climate change fund
amounting to $100 billion a
year by 2020 was quickly
followed by an offer from
China to open its books on
carbon emissions to inter-
national review.
The U.S. delegation did
not immediately react to
the offer by Vice Foreign
Minister He Yafei.

LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18 Page Editor: Troy Roberts, 754-0427


COUNTY
Continued From Page 1A
Industrial Development
Authority executive direc-
tor Jim Poole read a list
of errors and potential
concerns in the Federal
Bureau of Prisons Draft
Environmental Impact state-
ment from the IDA board of
directors.
The Federal Bureau of
Prisons is considering con-
tracting with one or more
contractors to build a pri-
vately owned and oper-
ated prison in the county
to house 1,250 low security
illegal alien criminals. A site
in Baldwin, Mich. is also
being considered.
Poole pointed out errors
in the proposal, dealing with
the potential infrastructure
impact, the project's proxim-
ity to the Catalyst and Rural
Area of Critical Economic
Concern site, Tyre Road
incorrectly being labeled as
a paved roadway, additional
ambulance services needed
for the facility, deputizing
employees at the staff and
who would handle wet-
land mitigation concerns.
However he specifically
noted the report indicated
the facility's proposed site is
listed as commercial indus-
trial, but county planning
and zoning records lists
the property as being agri-
culture. Therefore, before
the facility is built, a special
exception land use change
would have to be adopted
by county officials.
Concerns also centered
around funding for the facil-
- ity and if ad valorem taxes
would be paid for the insti-
tution.
"That's their problem in
how they want to pay for it,"
Commission chairman Ron
Williams said. "We said we
(Columbia County) would
have no obligation in this
finance package."
Commissioner . Jody
Dupree said- if it is private,
it doesn't matter who owns
it and noted a real estate
investment tr2ustfw.q uti":',
mately be responsible for
pay, property -and-owner-'
ship of the facility.
S"I know we try to take
as. many precautions in
the front, but I still have
reservations in the back of
my mind," Commissioner
SDewey Weaver said. "They
can change the minute it's
built and bring in any kind
of prisoner. Even though
the county doesn't have a
financial obligation, I feel
we still have moral obliga-
tion. Nothing has been pro-
duced that makes them go
away."
Williams said the county
wants to make sure that
taxes will be paid for the
facility and asked that if
the potential of the facility
being exempt from taxes
exists, then have an attor-
ney draw-up paper work
with prison financiers stat-
ing they would make in-lieu
of taxes payments.
S'.We've been hit by a snake
-ane time and don't intend to
get bit by that same snake
twice," he said.
Poole also attempted to
point out other concerns
the commission had, but,
Williams said as long ast
the four initial 'criteria the
county set for the facility
is met, he would have no
problem with it.
The board agreed to have
the Ron Williams sign the
IDA's letter addressing the
factual errors in the draft
environmental statement
and send the information
back before the public com-
ment period ends Dec. 21.
Williams also authorized
Poole and the IDA to fo-m
a subcommittee to address
the lingering issues and
questions.
According to Poole, he


received word from Sen.
- ill Nelson's office that the
Federal Bureau of Prisons
would not be able to use
imminent domain and claim
the land for the facility.

Teachers union

raps Fla. stimulus

application


By BILL KACZOR
Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE -
Florida's statewide teachers
union Thursday discouraged
local affiliates from endors-
ing the state's application for
up to $700 million in federal
stimulus grant money that
would require the adoption
of merit pay plans.
Florida Education
Association President Andy
Fordcalledtheproposal"fatal-
ly flawed" in an open letter
to Education Commissioner
Eric Smith that was pub-
lished as an advertisement
in the Tallahassee Democrat
newspaper.
Smith's plan would


require school districts and
their teachers unions to
adopt local merit pay plans
based at least 50 percent
on how each teacher's stu-
dents do on the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test - FCAT - or other
exams as a condition for
receiving grant money.
Ford's letter does not spe-
cifically mention the merit
pay requirement but calls
the application for a Race to
the Top grant "prescriptive,
topdown and unreasonable."
It also fails to focus on strug-
gling schools as envisioned
by the ObamaAdministration
but allocates money to all
schools in participating dis-
tricts, Ford wrote.

Official: Climate
deal unlikely
'COPENHAGEN - World'
leaders starting flooding into
Copenhagen on Thursday,
even as a Danish official
acknowledged that hope was
running out for a comprehen-
sive climate deal because
the negotiations between
'rich and poor countries were
deadlocked.
The official said the Danish
hosts of the U.N. conference
had not given up though it
appeared unlikely that their
ambitious plan for the confer-
ence would be fulfilled.

Dems will close
Medicare gap
WASHINGTON - It's
an annual ordeal for many
seniors living on a budget.
Medicare's coverage gap for
prescription drugs - $3,610
next year - has steadily got-
ten bigger since the benefit's
inception. But if Democrats
have their way on health
iare overhaul, the dreaded
"doughnut hole" will shrink by
$500 right away and go away
altogether by 2019.
.With the elderly worried
that Medicare cuts in the
health care bill will put the


quality of their own care in
jeopardy, Democrats belated-
ly are scrambling to convince
them otherwise. Lawmakers
are eager to make amends
with a pivotal political constit-
uency ahead of next year's
midterm elections.

Mexican navy kills
cartel chief
CUERNAVACA, Mexico
- Two hundred sailors
raided an upscale apart-
ment complex and killed a
reputed Mexican drug cartel
chief, Arturo Beltran Leyva,
the "boss of bosses," in a
two-hour gunbattle, one of
the biggest victories yet in
President Felipe Calderon's
drug war.

Citigoup suspends

WASHINGTON -
Citigroup Inc. will suspend
foreclosures and evictions for

for about 4,000 borrowers

The NeW York-based bank
said Thursday the suspen-
sion will run from Friday

H1N1: Shot given 'round the world


By LAURAN NEERGAARD
AP Medical Writer

WASHINGTON - A flu
shot for the holidays?
Finally, the nation's sup-
ply of swine flu vaccine will
reach 100 million doses by
week's end, opening the
way for everyone, not just
those at highest risk, to get
protected. .
For people who've been
at the back ,f the line, "Now
it's your turn,'"Health and
Human Services Secretary
Kathleen Sebelius said
Thursday.
Even, though this new
flu that scientists call the
2009 H1N1 strain is ebbing,
specialists stressed that itfs
too soon to say ;it's over.
There's plenty' of illness
going around, and the 1957
flu pandemic ebbed in the
fall only to bounce back in
January and February.
"We have a "wonderful
window of opportunity to
prevent or lessen a third
wave," Sebelius said.
She got her own shot


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Hong Kong Secretary for Food & Health York Chow receives
a vaccine against swine flu at a local health center, as the
government encouraged the public to receive the inoculation,
in Hong Kong Thursday.


Wednesday. Nearly half the
states already had lifted
restrictions on who can
get vaccinated, and more
will rapidly with the addi-
tional supplies, which have
reached pharmacy chains
in parts of the country.
The first wave of the
swine flu pandemic began


in April, when the strain was
discovered. A larger wave,
started in the late summer
Through mid-November,.
about one in six Americans'
have caught this new.H1N1,
and about 10,000 have died,,
the Centers for Disease
Control and Preveption
estimates. Far more chil-


dren and young adults have
gotten seriously ill and died
than in a normal flu year.
Despite severe vaccine
shortages until now, a lot
of high-risk people have
gotten vaccinated, includ-
ing many more pregnant
women than in a typical
year, health officials said
Thursday.
In-school vaccine clinics
inoculated so many school-
children that the CDC is
considering pushing more
school-based vaccinations
every year. Thirty-four
states held widespread in-
school vaccinations, some
inoculating more than half
of their school popula-
tions, the CDC said. Rhode
Island, for example, vacci-
nated three-quarters of its
students.
'This is a very impor-
tant legacy," said Dr. Tom
Frieden, the CDC's direc-
tor. Focusing on schoolchil-
dren even in a regular flu
year "may well tamp down
the spread of flu in a com-
munity."

Bowden tells
new coach not to
follow his lead.
By BRENDAN FARRINGTON
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE
Outgoing Florida State
coach Bobby Bowden has
some parting advice for his
successor, Jimbo Fisher:
"Do it your way."
Fisher's way could look
very similar to Bowden's
way on the surface.
"A lot of my principles
and values and the way I
do things came from coach
Bowden. And I've learned


from him over time," Fisher
said. Monday during his
first news conference since
Bowden, 80, announced
plans to retire after Florida
State plays West Virginia in
the Gator Bowl.
One thing could be dif-
ferent - Fisher says he
wants intelligence in his
players, not just talent. He
addressed an ESPN report
that some recent FSU play-
.ers had IQs as low as 60 and
read at a second or. third
grade level, if at all.
"Why would I want a guy
who's not going to be good

Bengals' Henry dies


day after dispute


Police report that
wide receiver died
at 6:36 a.m.
By MIKE CRANSTON
Associated Press
SCHARLOTTE, N.C. -
Cincinnati Bengals receiver
Chris Henry died Thursday,
a day after falling out of the
back of a pickup truck dur-
ing what police said was a
domestic dispute with his
fiancee.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg
police said Henry died at
6:36 a.m. Henry was 26.
"We knew him in a differ-
ent way than his public per-
sona," Bengals owner Mike
Brown said of the player
who was suspended five
times during his career. "He


had worked through the
troubles in his life and had"
finally seemingly reached
the point where everything
was going to blossom. And
he was going to have the
future we all wanted for
him. It's painful to us. We
feel it in our hearts, and we
will miss him."
Police spokeswoman
Rosalyn Harrington said
homicide detectives have
been assigned. to the
case but had no further
information.
Later Thursday, police
released two 911 tapes. The
first was from an unidenti-
fied woman who said she
was following a yellow pick-
tip truck.
"It's got a black man on
it with no shirt on, and he's
got his arm in a cast and


black pants on," she told
a dispatcher. "He's beating
on the back of this truck
window. ... I don't know if
he's trying to break in or
something. It just looks
crazy. It's a girl driving it."
Just over a minute later,
an unidentified man called
911 and said he saw a man
"laying in the road" and
"definitely unconscious."
Henry was rushed to the
hospital Wednesday after
being found on a curvy sec-
tion of a residential road.
Police said the dispute
began at a home about a
half-mile away, and Henry
jumped into the bed of the
pickup truck as his fiancee
was driving away from the
residence.
HENRY continued on 4B

DEAR. ABBY


Battle over Christmas menu

turns feast into food fight


DEAR ABBY: My wife
and I are involved in a power
struggle with my brother. At
Christmas we invite him and
his family to our home. We
try. to make our Christmas
dinner fun and festive, so a
lot of planning goes into the
menu.
Every year, a day or two
before the event, my brother
calls to ask what's on the,
menu, then offers his un-
wanted opinion on what we
should or shouldn't serve.
Last year he told me he
wouldn't be able to enjoy
the meal because we weren't
serving one of the items he
feels is "traditional" in our
family. He says he's family so
he's entitled to make sugges-
tions. When I was unwilling
to accommodate his "simple"
request, he got upset. I'm on
the verge of not inviting his
family in the future. Who is
right? - OFFENDED IN
PENNSYLVANIA
DEAR OFFENDED:
You are. Your brother may
be family, but his behavior is
childish and impolite. When
he calls this year and starts
the drill, if he tells you he
doesn't think he will enjoy
the meal if he can't dictate
the menu, serve him a dose
of reality. Tell him that your
menu is already set and if he
wants something in addition
he can prepare it and bring
it with him - or make other
plans.
DEAR ABBY: When my


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearabby.com
in-lawis moved to town, we
exchanged keys in case of
emergencies. The problem
is they never call prior to us-
ing our key. Although they
do nice things, like dropping
off gifts or plants, when I see
.something on the counter
that wasn't there before I left
home, I feel invaded. They
drop off these "presents"
specifically when no one is
home.
Abby, they are retired and
could drop things off when
we are home and the chil-
dren can see them and visit
with them.
I was taught not to use
a key unless specifically in-
structed to do so or for an
emergency. My neighbors
and I have called regarding
perishables that need to be
dropped off, so why can't
family? My husband thinks
my feelings are off base and
that family is forgiven for al-
most everything. Please ad-
,vise, as I am about to change
the locks. - INVADED IN
MISSISSIPPI
DEAR INVADED: Be-
fore changing the locks,
have a chat with your in-laws


and explain that coming
home and finding things that
weren't there when you left
makes you uncomfortable.
Tell them you would prefer
they not come in without
giving you prior notice. Your
feelings are valid, and your
husband might feel similarly
if it was your parents com-
ing in rather than his. If your
wishes are disregarded, then
change the locks.
' DIEAR ABBY: Please set-
tle a dispute between me and
my husband. I became upset
when we were discussing an
'idea having to do with his job
arid he immediately began
testing it to a co-worker. I
find it offensive when some-
one looks at his (or her) cell
phone, rather than at me
while we're talking.
My husband says if you
text someone during a con-
versation that it's not an in-
terruption and "it only takes
a second." I say texting in
the 'middle of any conver-
sation is rude, regardless
of. its relevance of brevity.
Please advise. - TO TEXT
OR NOT TO TEXT IN
BOULDER, COLO.
DEAR T.T. OR NOT
T.T.: I agree with you. But if
your husband doesn't want
to hear it from you, I guaran-
tee hell resist accepting the
message from me.

HENRY: Players to dedicate rest of season to teammate


Continued From Page 1B

Police said at some
point when she was driv-
ing, Henry "came out of
the back of the vehicle."
Harrington wouldn't say if
the woman, whom police
would not identify, was
present at the scene when
police arrived.
Henry is engaged to
Loleini Tonga, and the cou-
ple has been raising three



FISHER
Continued From Page 1B

I've got to teach him the
same things on the field.
Today's football's a differ-
ent animal. You can't play
with guys who can't learn,"
Fisher said.
The NCAA earlier this
year investigated Florida
State over an academic
cheating scandal that
included 25 football play-
ers. The university is
appealing the punish-
ment, . which could
include Bowden
losing 14 career victories.
'Fisher strongly said his
goal is to make sure play-
ers have brains as well as
skill.
"Guys have to have intel-
ligence, they have to have
the ability to learn," Fisher
said. "We're going to
recruit the right guys with
character and with intel-
ligence and we're going to
do it the right way. We'll win
games with talent, we'll win
championships with char-
acter. And that's the way
we've got to go about it -
character . and
-intelligence."
Fisher, 44, said there will
also be an influence from
Alabama coach Nick Saban
when he takes over the
Seminoles next season. He
was Saban's offensive coor-
dinator when LSU won the
national championship in
2003.
Fisher said Saban "has
.great structure and orga-
nization of a program and
builds support systems
around his players prob-
ably as well as anybody in
college football. ... Some
of that will be implement-
ed along with some of the
same core values as Bobby
Bowden."
For now, though, the
focus is on the Gator Bowl,
and Fisher said he isn't try-
ing to take over the team
early.
"This is coach Bowden's
game. Always will be coach
Bowden's game. He's the
head coach of this game,
he makes all the decisions
and I'm the offensive coor-
dinator. Just like it always
has been. The Jimbo Fisher
era will start when coach
Bowden has had his time
and had his games and did
everything he wants to do,"
Fisher said.
Fisher is making deci-
sions on staff changes
and recruiting, but the
Jan. 1 game plan will be
Bowden's. The transition
hasn't been awkward or a
distraction to the players,
Fisher said.
"Kids are amazing. They
put things away and go
about it and we're being
very professional about the
thing and we all know it's
not a personal thing," he
said. "The kids have been
very good, they had a great
practice today."
Fisher grew up in West
Virginia and the first college
football game he attended
as a fan was the school he's
facing in the Gator Bowl.
West Virginia's coach that
year was Bowden.
Fisher knows from his-


tory that the 6-6 Seminoles
will have a tough chal-
lenge in No. 18 West
Virginia (9-3).
"They'll back themselves
up and say 'It's us against
the world' and everyone
will come at you full force
and full go," Fisher said.
'They're going to be tough,
hard-nosed, very well-
coached, fundamentally
sound and will have more
skill than you'll anticipate."


children. Tonga's MySpace
page identifies herself as
"Mrs. C. Henry" and has
a picture of her next to a
person who appears to be
Henry. She also has a post
from Tuesday talking about
buying wedding rings. A
neighbor said Wednesday
that the Tonga family owns
the home where police
say the incident began.


Charlotte is home to his
fiancee's parents.
"We ask that you 'keep
Chris' family -- especial-
ly the young children he
leaves behind - in your
prayers," Henry's agent,
Andy Simms of PlayersRep
Sports said in a statement
"It is tragic when a life is
taken so young. He was a
man just realizing his poten-


tial, not just in football, but
in life."
Authorities have not
announced the cause of
death. Mecklenburg County
medical examiner investiga-
tor Carol Cormier said they
were expecting to receive
the body later Thursday.
The Bengals will wear
a helmet sticker Sunday
against San Diego to


remember Henry.
When the players
received word Henry had
died, quarterback Carson
Palmer called them together
in the locker room and said
they should dedicate the
game and rest of the season
to Henry and the wife of
defensive coordinator Mike
Zimmer, who died unexpect-
edly during the season.
