Science teacher builds another life, business

K aren
has always
found harmo-
ny connecting
with the earth.
Especially with trees.
It's hard to tell that look-
ing at her day job. During
the week, Henderson, a 53-
year-old wife, mother and
grandmother, teaches sci-
ence to middle-schoolers
at The Bolles School.
But on the weekends,
she can be found sporting
goggles and maneuvering

she operates from the
garage of her Southside
For Henderson, her
interest in science and in
creating things from wood
is an extension of her
interest in the outdoors
and in trees, and in figur-
ing out ways to use it all to
create a more harmonious
*-'When I was growing
up, my mother enrolled
me and my brothers and
sisters in science classes
at the (Jacksonville) chil-
dren's museum," she said.
"She bought us every field
guide there ever was. And
she made us learn about
all the critters, all the
bugs, all the snakes. We
were always camping, and
we were an outdoor family,
so my upbringing was in

Henderson retreats to her woodworking shop where she creates all manners of bowls, desks, chair, cabinets and jewelry.

ily, two boys and two girls
- we were always build-
ing things out in the shop."
But before Henderson
embarked on the path that
would lead her to teach
science, she became enam-
ored of another way of
using wood to create har-
mony for herself: playing
that woodwind instrument
known as the clarinet.
"Oddly enough, I got
-into band, and my major
was originally music," she
said. "I wanted to be a
band director. I didn't fin-
ish that degree, though. I
went back to school, and I
went into the science field

because for me, science
had always been a part of
' my life."
Henderson has taught
for 20 years. But years
ago, when she taught
third grade at Ramona
Elementary, one of her
favorite subjects-was trees.
,Often, she said, they'd
go out and count the tree
rings and study the habi-
But now, Henderson is
reaching to wood to build
balance in her life.
After teaching all week,
Henderson retreats to her
garage, where she makes
bowls, jewelry, key chains

and all kinds of items from
woods yielded by cherry,
sycamore and walnut
trees, among others. She
also uses stones and sea
glass, shavings and other
materials that would other-
wise wind up in a landfill.
"I took a bowl-turning
class last July, and that's
what I mainly do now,"
said Henderson, who
added she spends eight to
nine hours each weekend
in her shop. "People seem
to really like the jewelry."
Besides allowing
- Henderson to bring a bit
of her beloved outdoors
inside, woodworking also

appealed to her sense
of thrift and later, to her
sense of adventure.
"My daughter's (now
grown) got a rabbit, and
we needed to cage it," she
said. "I thought: 'If I had
a saw, I could get some
wood and build these
cages because they are, in
my opinion, crazy expen-
"On my 48th birthday,
I told my husband that
I wanted a saw, because
I need to be able to cut
wood and put it together.
That's when I began build-
ing the bigger things, and
getting more tools. ... I

built the toy box, and I
built the mantel that ties
into that little shelf."
But getting the saw also
proved to be therapeutic
for Henderson. After a
life of being outdoors and
hiking the Appalachian
Trail and rock-climbing,
Henderson was diagnosed
with thyroid cancer - and
everything sort of stopped,
she said.
"The saw didn't take me
off the (rock climbing)
wall. What took me off the
wall was cancer. Thyroid
cancer," Henderson said.
"I got the saw, and then I
got cancer ... that changes
the way you look at life,
"I never felt like it was a
death sentence. They told
me that the type of cancer
I had was curable, and
that's been six years ago."
So Henderson added
woodworking therapy
to her radiation therapy.
And these days, it seems
like the woodworking has
allowed her to literally
build herself a life and a
business - her items can
be ordered through www.
hendywood. - out-
side teaching.
In fact, she hopes to do
her first art show in July.
Vicki Hoffman, who has
known Henderson since
she was a child, isn't sur-
prised by her derring-do.
"We've known each
other since (we were)
little girls, and pretty
much everything she's set
her mind to, she's done,"
Hoffman said. "When she
realized she had a pas-
sion for woodworking, she
really got into it.


Taylor Swift donates $500K for flood relief

AP Entertainment Writer
aylor Swift is donating
$500,000 to flood relief in
The announcement
was made on Thursday
night's "Flood Relief with Vince Gill
and Friends," a telethon held on
local station WSMV.
The money will go directly to vari-
ous flood relief organizations in the
city rocked by deadly storms and
flooding that killed 30 in three states,
including 20 in Tennessee. The gift
was announced by the show's host
after Swift finished an interview from.
her tour stop in Des Moines, Iowa.
Swift moved to Nashville when she
was 14.
".Being at home during the storm,
I honestly could not believe what
was happening to the city and the
people I love so dearly," Swift told
The Associated Press in an e-mail.
"Nashville is my home, and the
reason why I get to do what I love.
I have always been proud to be a
Nashvillian, but especially now, see-
ing the love that runs through this
city when there are people in crisis."
Cleanup and repair is expected to
cost more than $1 billion. Thousands
of homes were damaged, along with
some of Music City's most important
landmarks. Pleas to donate to relief
organizations started early, and
Nashville's musical talent - from
local bands and clubs to the biggest
stars - are giving their time and
money to the effort.
Gill volunteered to host the
WSMV telethon and interviewed
and played with several of coun-
try music's top stars. Keith Urban
played the show with a borrowed
guitar after his gear was destroyed
by the flood.

GAC announced Thursday it will
air a telethon on May 16 that
will include Brad Paisley, Lady
Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Rodney
Atkins and other stars live from the

comes to registering them.
"An Internet cafe is rela-
tively a new type thing and
I don't know that anybody
around here would have
amended their regulations,
at this point and time, to
include a definition," said
Columbia County plan-
ner Brian Kepner. "The
county has an ordinance
which requires a business
tax receipt license. In order
for an Internet cafe to get
that license the application
requires that a review of
the proposed location has
the appropriate zoning."

Legal guidelines
Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services spokesman
Terence McElroy said the
agency doesn't have a list-
ing of how many Internet
cafes exist in Florida.
"We don't have a listing
because the locations aren't
filed as such," McElroy
said. "Any Internet cafe
that has a sweepstakes of
under $5,000 is exempt
from registration, as the
law provides. Most busi-
nesses, rather than register
.the location of the business,
register it under the name
of the promotion. Most of
them probably have games
that are under $5,000 and
are totally exempt from reg-
istration. There are dozens
and dozens of these things
around the state."
Although the variety of
gaming opportunities may
vary from Internet cafe to
cafe, they are all prohibited
from having a gambling
operation. Internet cafes
operating under Florida's
Sweepstakes Statute are
able to provide the Internet
gaming as a sweepstakes.
"This is really, theoreti-
cally, no different than buy-
ing a bottle of Coca Cola and
opening the cap and seeing
whether you're a winner or
not," McElroy said. "These
things, if they are a sweep-
stakes, are legal as long
as they (operators) are not
charging anybody to play.
Normally they get them in
connection with the product
they purchased. If they are
complying with that, they
are operating within the

Florida Game Promotions
Sweepstakes Act."
McElroy said people
can't be charged to play a
game because that's gam-

How games are played
Florida Division of
Consumer Services assis-
tant director Miriam
Wilkinson said a game pro-
motion is defined as being
a contest or game of chance
operated in conjunction
with the sale of a consumer
product or service.
"The key requirement
is that whoever is offering
the game promotion must
be in the business of sell-
ing a consumer product or
service," she said, noting
Internet cafes sell Internet
service and give customers
an opportunity to play the
Most Internet cafes sell
either Internet time or tele-
phone cards.
"That's where they make
their money," she said.
'The consumer buys the
card with the time on it."
The consumer often has
the option of having the
card run through a magnet-
ic card reader where they
can find out immediately
whether or not they've won
a prize. Consumers can also
take their free play points,
which they are awarded
with the purchase of the
card, and they can sit down
at a terminal and use those
points to play the sweep-
"The amount of the prize
doesn't change, whether
you choose to have the
store manager run your
card through the reader
or whether you choose
to sit down at a terminal
and play the sweepstakes,"
Wilkinson said. '"The prize
is associated with the
bar code number on that
The statute requires that
a person must be able to
play for free. If a custom-
er goes into an Internet
cafe; they must be given
an opportunity to enter the
sweepstakes as part of the
game promotion.
Wilkinson said Internet
cafes have proliferated

across Florida during the
last three years.
"They are fairly ubiq-
uitous now - you can
pretty much find them
everywhere," she said.
"Unfortunately our sweep-
stakes statute was crafted
before the Internet exist-
ed and before electronic
sweepstakes came into
being. The statute is really
She said the electronic
sweepstakes operate on the
theory that there is only a
certain amount of prizes
because its a fixed prize
pool with a limited amount
of prizes.

Local cafe owners
Rick Silver is the presi-
dent of Silver's Internet
Cafe, which has been in
� business only for about
three weeks.
Silver said he has noticed
a steady increase of cus-
tomers since the store first
opened, including repeat
and new customers.
He said he decided
to start an Internet cafe
business after speaking
to some of his friends in
South Florida who also own
Internet cafe businesses.
Silver's Internet Cafe
has 30 computers where
patrons purchase time
on the Internet to play a
variety of Internet games
including, Bingo, Keno, Hit
the Road, Rusty Spur and
American Pride.
In addition to the games
on the Internet, Silver's pro-
vides check cashing servic-
es, has an ATM and allows
patrons to pay bills to more
than 1,000 vendors.
'The games are at no
charge," Silver said, not-
ing that patrons purchase
Internet time. "We allow
100 points a day to people
who come in. It's a like

Johnson also said the

Dennille Folsom, cham-

Jenny Drawdy, chamber
board president, both said
the chamber hopes to fos-

with the other groups to
reach common objectives.
"I think the main thing
is that we want to open
up the lines of communica-
tion between the different
government entities and
find ways that we can work
together to accomplish our
goals," Drawdy said.
"I think after talking to
my board," Folsom said,
"the most important thing
we want to do is establish
that working relationship

with everyone so that:if
anyone has a problem or
question, they know who to
work together with to get
the problem solved."

A workshop priority
for the IDA is economic
growth, said Jim Poole,
IDA executive director.
"I think it's important
for everyone to be on thie
same page and to look 'at
the issues that are involved
to have better growth ald

Poole also said sharing
strategies and communica-
tion "is always good."
"It's important," he said.
"We can't do economic
development without
schools, the county, the
city. We're basically sell-
ing Columbia County and
the strengths that we sell
are tied to the other orga-
nizations as well. At the

critical to


good, goals

The guest list for
Thursday's joint
workshop reads
like a "who's
who of Columbia
County." Groups including the
Columbia County Board of
County Commissioners, City
of Lake City, Columbia County
School Board, the superinten-
dent of schools and Columbia
County Industrial Development
Authority will meet en masse
for the first time to foster a con-
tinued and open dialogue.
Below the surface, this meet-
ing is more monumental than
it appears. The organization
behind assembling a commu-
nity's governmental, industrial
and educational bodies is a feat
few.counties attempt - but no
other organizational meeting
has such potential for dissemi-
nation of shared information,
communication and enhanced
opportunities for future coop-
Yet, such a meeting can be
properly planned but poorly
executed - if those powers
that be fail to embrace that
spirit of synergy.
To ensure this is not the
case, the only agenda present
Thursday should be the master

partner, and the only(attitude in

This joint meeting presents
a rare and vital opportunity for
the entire county to embrace
the work, plans and challenges
of each individual organization.
It is only in the climate of
collaboration, partnership and
teamwork that individual pre-
sentations can be combined for
the greater good.

Today is Sunday, May 9, the
129th day of 2010. There are
236 days left in the year. This is

Mother's Day: How sweet the sound

Editor's note: This column is
reprinted from May 11, 2003.
I remember the day my
mother led the church
singing. It was awful
- and it was beautiful.
Awful because she had
a screechy singing voice, like
Edith Bunker on TV's "All in the
Family." Beautiful because she
had the compassion to lead the
singing knowing she could not
The scene was a little country
church, possibly Prospect or
Bethel of Bony Bluff. The occa-
sion was a funeral attended by
only a dozen or so mourners. I
was the only child there.
In my memory, the service
was short. Probably just a
prayer, an obituary, a brief eulo-
gy and a short sermon.
The minister probably
reminded us that human life is
like grass - in time it withers;
that human glory is like a flow-
er - in time it fades. Theni he
probably expressed confidence,
or hope, that the deceased was
a child of God and would there-
fore endure forever..,
The short sermon ended and
the minister asked us to stand
and sirg a closing hymn. He
announced that the deceased
had made a deathbed request
for "Amazing Grace" to be sung
at his funeral.
The minister.then asked
that someone in our small
congregation begin the song.
He explained that he was not
a song leader and had been
unable to provide one.
"Will someone please lead
us," he asked. Nobody made a

sound. "Anyone at all," he said.
Nobody moved. "Someone just
help us get started," he pleaded.
Everybody remained still and
There was a kind of doom in
the air. We were facing a small
crisis. Nobody was going to
start the singing. Outside, the
birds may have been singing
but, inside, the minister heard
only the sound he dreaded
most: Silence.
Then it happened. Head
down, my shy mother, with her
high-pitched screech, started
singing, all alone.
"Uh uh maay-zingg grace,
how sweet thu-uh sound. ...."
That did it. That got us started.
One by one, others joined in
until everyone was singing. No
piano, no organ. Just human
voices quietly echoing through-
out the small church.
There we stood, 12 or so
tuneless souls, struggling to.
sing the best we could, but by
the last stanza we were all unit-
ed in singing the most beautiful
verse in all hymndom.
"When we've been there ten
thousand years, Bright shining

as the sun,
We've no less days to sing
God's praise than when we first
The song ended and we all
remained standing. The minis-
ter paused, then looked silently,
out at us with love, tenderness,
and gratitude. Maybe we were
all thinking the, same thing: "We
did it. We sang the man's song
for him. We did not let him go
to his grave without his song."
And my shy, timid mother
had led the singing to be sure
we did it.
As we left the little church
that day, the words of that pow-
erful, magnificent hymn rang
in my young soul. "Amazing
grace!" The overwhelming
wonder of God's loving mercy
toward human kind. "How
sweet the sound!" So true. But
that day I had also discovered
another might sweet sound:
My mother's singing voice. The
memory would forever more be
sweet music to my ears.
My mother, Ida Belle English
Williams. Born on a remote
farm near Fargo, Ga., and,
equipped with just a third grade
education, she endured an early
life of incredible hardship but
she always retained a sweetness
of spirit and a love of people.
Life span: 78 years, eight
months, 26 days.
Of all those days we shared,
the one I remember best is the
day she led the church singing.
In memorial, Happy Mother's
Day, Mama.

Commissioners work
for people
'To the Editor:
Utility Progress? The current
county commissioners seem
to be taking a page from the
Obama/Democrat administra-

tion with the "I don't care what
the citizens want, this is what
they are going to get."
In that case, there is only
one thing that the people of the
county can do: Vote them out.
Of course, there are some of
them that have been there so
long that they think it is their
right to be there and not by the
will of the people.
There is no reason to force
something on someone that
they don't want; it has to do
with special interest and money
which is driving this issue. I
believe it is. Who stands to
gain? Not the people as far as I
can see. But of course, just like
Washington - the commission-
ers have your best interest at
heart. Right.

Oil drilling:

It's a gas

From within

it's time serious oil-and-gas
"We are startirig to find
out that we will see short-
ages of Gulf seafood in the

focus on using local products

but because of this disaster we.

Today's mess may grease
the skids for a grand com-
promise: a red light for new
offshore oil in exchange for
green lights for onshore oil
production and offshore natu-
ral-gas drilling.
True, this approach would
overlook plentiful oil supplies
beneath U.S. oceans.
"You have over four times
more resources offshore," says
Dr. John Felmy, the American
Petroleum Institute's chief
economist. In federal lands and
waters, "There are about 21
billion barrels of oil onshore,
mostly in Alaska, and 86 billion
barrels of oil offshore."
Meanwhile, natural gas
abounds, offshore and on.
"There are about 420 trillion
cubic feet of natural gas off-
shore," Felmy estimates. "You
have 187 trillion cubic feet of
natural gas onshore ... You also
have exciting, new shale-gas
supplies. The Marcellus Shale
deposits in Pennsylvania and
upstate New York are huge.
There could be as much as 500
trillion cubic feet in Marcellus
Americans use about 20 to
25 trillion cubic feet of natural
gas annually. Hence, Marcellus
could represent a 25-year
natural-gas supply. Existing
offshore reserves could add
20 more years of natural gas to
America's energy menu.
It's worth re-stating the -
obvious: Offshore natural gas
does not spill. At worst, if a
natural-gas rig exploded, the
ensuing fireball might scorch a
passing flock of seagulls. The
only onshore impact might
involve sunbathers rising from
their beach towels and asking,
"What the hell is that?"
Offshore drilling will not end
today, nor should it. But given
its catastrophic potential, plus
the immediate availability of
cheaper and less environmen-
tally calamitous substitutes,
perhaps the Left and Right can
agree, for once, to de-empha-
size offshore oil while passion-
ately embracing onshore oil
and offshore natural gas.
This may be the best policy
to keep the cares to a mini-
mum and, as this city does so
well, let the good times roll.

CAFES: Are legal under current state law

for quite a while," he said.
"If they continue to win
points they continue to

that we offer to everyone."
Randy Roberts, along
with two other people, is
one of the owners of Clicks
Internet Cafe. He said this
will be the last weekend
the cafe will be' opened
because Columbia County
is too small to support
seven Internet Cafes.
'We haven't been get-

Roberts said. "It's just too

pete." -

location which has been
opened for several years.
"They have a majority
of the business," Roberts
said. "Lake City is a good
market, but it has too many
Internet cafes."
Clicks Internet Cafe also
sells Internet time and has
40 computers on site.

Law enforcement
Lake City Police
Department public infor-
mation officer Sgt. John
Blanchard IV said local
authorities have checked
the Internet cafes in city
limits to make sure they
were operating legally.
He said with Internet
cafe operations the main
three concerns are gam-
bling issues, fraud (profes-
sional licenses) and dif-
ferent code enforcement
"The Lake City Police

Department has worked
with the (Third Judicial
Circuit) State Attorney's
Office, Columbia County
Sheriff's Office, Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement and the Office
of Professional Licenses
and Regulations on a regu-
lar, but infrequent basis to
go around to these differ-
ent establishments to make
sure they are in compli-
ance," Blanchard said.
He said there appears to
be sort of an unclear law or
legislation that's govern-
ing Internet cafes and the
sweepstakes provision they
operate under.
'"We always err on the
side of caution," Blanchard
said. "We do make sure
they are . compliant with
everything that's in place.
If the legislature is able to
clarify whether its a game
of chance or gambling then
we are going to follow what-
ever those laws are."

Blanchard encouraged
people who visit Internet
cafes to lodge their com-
plaints with the appropriate
law enforcement agencies.
"If there's a legitimate
complaint that they pass-on
to us we're going to investi-
gate it and if it appears that
it's a violation of law or a
code issue, we're certainly
going to address it."

Legislation of Internet
Miriam Wilkinson said
legislators have made sev-
eral attempts at address-
ing legislation for Internet
"]or the past few years
the legislature has tried
to amend the game pro-
motions statute, section
849.094 unsuccessfully,"
she said. "No legislation
has ever made it through.
Even though there has
been bills in the last three
years that have gone

before both the House (of
Representatives) and the
Senate, they've never gone
anywhere. I think it's frus-
trated not only the industry
but a lot of law enforcement
folks too."
She said she expects
the legislature to address
the issue again in the near
"There needs to be
uniformity -to that busi-
nesses, law enforcement
and consumers know
where all the boundaries
are," she said.

Cancer awareness

fundraiser gathers

more than $40,000


Preliminary estimates
indicate teams involved in
the 12th Annual Columbia
County Relay For Life fund-
raiser have raised more
than $40,000.
The annual cancer aware-
ness fundraiser took place
during the weekend at the
Columbia High School foot-
ball stadium with more than
29 teams taking part in the
fundraising activities.
Cancer survivors and
cancer victims were recog-
nized during the night of
activities through several
parts of the ceremony and
the traditional cancer sur-
vivor's lap.
"The event actually went
really well," said Nancy
Jordan the'event chair for
this year's fundraiser. "We
were very pleased with the
attendance and pleased
with the outdoor activities
last night (Friday)."
Jordan said the fund-
raising goal for this year's
event was $45,000 and
preliminary estimates are
that between the 27 teams

who have turned in their
funds, $40,000 has already
been raised. Several teams
left the stadium Saturday
morning due to the threat
of rain.
"We do not close the
bank until August, but I
do believe we are going to
reach our $45,000 quota,"
she said. "When we left we
had a little over $40,000. I
truly believe we are going
to reach our goal and I
think we may go over our
Jordan said the event
also served as a community
event where several memo-
ries were made.
"I think this year's event
is going to be remembered
for a lot of Columbia County
residents coming together
to make awareness about
cancer and it's survivors,"
she said. "The event will
be remembered for resi-
dents just uniting together
to raise awareness. With

Lingering concerns affect renewed partnership

Columbia County has
once again become a mem-
ber of the Florida Crown
Workforce Consortium, but
the county still has remain-
ing issues with some work-
force processes.
The Columbia
County Board of County
Commissioners rejoined
the consortium at its meet-
ing Thursday by a 3-2 vote
with commissioners Jody
0DuPree and Stephen Bailey
Commissioner Dewey
Weaver was appointed to
serve as the workforce

consortium member for
the duration of his time in
The board members
voted to accept an interlo-
cal agreement modifica-
tion which allows Florida
Crown's board to be recer-
tified with the state, said
Dale Williams, county man-
"We were made a mem-
ber with that vote," lie
At the meeting, Weaver
said he previously met
with the consortium. After
receiving a letter from the
workforce board address-
ing the issues the county
had with the workforce,

Weaver said he still had
"problems" with issues the
workforce board deter-
mined as "closed," such as
how many times the con-
sortium meets annually
and the lack of participa-
tion in training available for
consortium members.
"I don't think anyone
can go to one meeting and
resolve all these issues,"
Weaver said, and he will
continue to work on issues
with lhe workforce for the
six months he has left in
Weaver also said 60 per-
cent of Florida Crown's
funding would be lost if the
county were not to accept

the interlocal agreement, a
loss that is "not in the best
interest" for the county or
Florida Crown.
The county original-
ly severed ties with the
Florida Crown Worldorce
about a year ago, Williams
said. Weaver said if out-
standing issues cannot
be solved in the next six
months, he could make
"a severe recommenda-
tion" to the county to pos-
sibly withdraw from the
"I'm optimistic that in
six months these issues
can be resolved," Weaver

From staff reports
As the BP oil spill increas-
ingly threatens Florida's
fishing, maritime and tour-
ism industries, a team of
nationally known attor-
neys led by Tallahassee
lawyer and Northeastern
University professor P. Tim
Howard filed on Friday
an amended complaint
in one of the first Florida
class action lawsuits over
the sinking of the oil rig
Deepwater Horizon in the
Gulf of Mexico.
First filed in the U.S.
on April 30, the amended
complaint in Ward, et. al.
v. BP, et. al., alleges gross
negligence, willful miscon-
duct and other claims in
the design, construction
and operation of the ,rig,
as well as in the response
to the disaster. The case
has been assigned to Chief
Judge Stephan P. Mickle.
Among the plaintiffs
are George Weems Ward,
who lives in East Point,
on Apalachicola Bay near
Panama City. Ward earns
his living as a guide fish-
erman, shrimper, and oys-
terman. He is joined by
plaintiff Jeff Galloway, who
lives on nearby St. George
Island, where he works as
a real estate broker. A third.
lead plaintiff in the class
action is Constance Ward

Ward), who owns property
in Cape San Blas, also just

be holding its monthly

business/dinner meeting
at 6 p.m. on May 10 at

Kazbo's restaurant, located
in the Publix Shopping .

Workers unload oil spill containment booms from a flatbed trailer on Thursday at the Panania
City Marina in Panama City. U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Steve Caskey estimated the Coast Guard
Will deploy between 300,000 and 400,000 feet of boom in the water between Pensacola and

south'of Panama City.
Panama City and its
beaches are among those
expected to be directly
impacted by the oil slick as
it moves onshore. Panama
City Beach is routinely
named one of the world's
most beautiful beaches
by sources such as CNN,
Money Magazine and Conde
Nast Traveler.
The defendants include
various divisions of oil
giant BP, Transocean, Ltd.
'(the owners/operators of
the Deepwater Horizon),
Halliburton Energy (which
was involved in "cement-
ing" operations to cap the
oil rig when the explosion
occurred) and Cameron

International Corporation
(manufacturers of the rig's
blow-out-preventers, which
allegedly failed to operate
properly and prevent the
oil spill).
Similar lawsuits are
planned for Texas, Alabama
and Mississippi, as the fall-
out from the oil rig disaster
continues to grow.
"Oil continues to flow
into the gulf, and with it-
an environmental night-
mare," said Howard, who
most recently played a
leading role in coordinat-
ing a national team of more
than 40 law firms in the
Toyota sudden acceleration
lawsuits. "This unmitigated
horror threatens to destroy

one of the most beautiful
marine, coastal and estua-
rine environments in the
In addition to his work
in the Toyota litigation,
Howard and his team
are known for expertise
in a variety of consumer
law and product liability
cases. Howard coordinat-
ed the legal team in the
Florida tobacco lawsuit in
the 1990s that led to a

Castro: Gulf spill shows NEWM

corporate domination I1

Associated Press

Fidel Castro says the
spreading oil slick fouling
the Gulf of Mexico is proof
that the world's most pow-
erful governments cannot
control large corporations
that now dictate the pub-
lic's destiny.
Officials are rushing
to seal an underwater oil
gusher triggered after a
deep-water rig operated
by BP PLC exploded and
sank on April 20, killing
11 people. It still is unclear
whether some of the 3 mil-
lion gallons of spilled crude
could eventually reach
Cuba's shores - though
government scientists have
appeared on state televi-
sion to say the island is not

immediately at risk.
In an opinion piece
published by state media
on Saturday, Castro said
the disaster "shows how
little governments can do
against those who control
the capital, who in both the
United States and Europe
are, due to the economy
of our globalized planet,
those who decide the des-
tiny of the public."
London-based BP is
Europe's second-larg-
est oil company, though
Castro did not mention it
by name.
The semiretired, 83-
year-old communist lead-
er, who often writes about
environmental issues, did
not comment on the slick's
possible threat to Cuba,

"This year's plant sale was

think that's what made this

Nearly 25 volunteers, as

helping carry the plants
the customers purchased.
"The customers were
lined-up outside the build-

The plants were grown
by Columbia County mas-

brought them to the exten-
sion service office for the
sale. .The master garden-
ers brought the plants in,
priced and tagged' them

would know what kinds of
plants they were buying
and the plants were labeled
and inspected.
The plants for sale
included vegetables, vin-
ning plants, annual, peren-

and many Florida plants.
"The event is popular

Columbia, Fort
White hold first
simulated games.

* Spring practice photo
feature, 4B
It wasn't quite a real
game, but the players of
Columbia and Fort White
high schools will take it.
The Tigers held their first
scrimmage of the spring on
Saturday, while the Indians
got together on Friday.
"It was a good scrim-
mage with a lot of effort,"
Columbia High head coach
Craig Howard said. "We
saw some things to work on
next week. We'll evaluate to
see where we're at and what
we need to improve on. As a
head coach, you're never
really happy. If the offense
wins, you want the defense
to do better. If the defense
is playing well, you want the
offense to do better."
Columbia saw two play-
ers stand out above the
rest in the first scrimmage
- one from both sides of
the ball.
"Timmy Jernigan didn't
play a lot due to a ham-
string, but he had three
sacks when he played,"
Howard said. "Adrian Hill
caught 11 passes for 139
yards, and that's what we
expect him to be without
Tiger Powell and Jamaal
The three-headed mon-
ster at quarterback (Jared
Butler, Nigel Atkinson and
Jayce Barber) completed
22-of-30 pass combined for
299 yards.
Barber also led the Tigers
in rushing with eight carries
for 68 yards and two touch-
downs. Atkinson had the
longest run of the day - a
47 yard touchdown run.
Who had the edge right
now? Howard isn't tipping
his hat just yet.

- A scrambling par on

Westwood to keep the
one-shot lead that he start-

Players Championship.
Only now he has a lot more
Masters champion Phil
Mickelson suddenly is back
in the picture, along with
that No. 1 ranking.
Tiger Woods is not.
Westwood, who fell two
shots behind with six holes
left in the third round, avoid-
ed the kind of mistakes on
the back nine that slowed
Heath Slocum and finished
with a 2-under 70 to take a
one-shot lead over Robert
Allenby going into the final
round on the always unpre-
dictable TPC Sawgrass.
Allenby was five shots
behind when he walked off

the 13th tee. He answered
with a 6-iron to just outside
12 feet on the par-5 16th for
eagle, then a 12-foot birdie
on the island-green 17th
that curled into the side of
the cup. He shot a 67 and
will play in the final group.
Westwood was at 14-
under 202.
"The golf course changed
a lot. It got really firm this
afternoon," Westwood said.
"I thought I played well -
gave myself a lot of chanc-
es, missed a couple, but all
in all, I was pleased with the
way I played. I didn't make
too many poor shots out
He certainly didn't on the
18th after his drive landed
in a drain grate. He took a
free drop, saw a gap in the
trees and hit a 6-iron onto
the green to give himself
another shot at winning.
A month ago, Westwood
had a one-shot lead over
Mickelson going into the
last round of the Masters.
Lefty began the day nine
shots out of the lead, same
as Woods.
They went opposite direc-

tions, however. Mickelson
didn't make a bogey until
the final hole for a 66 to put
himself back into the pic-
ture, just five shots behind
Westwood. The 10 players
ahead of him have a com-
bined 14 victories on the
PGA Tour.

to click a little bit today,

more low round in me,"
Mickelson said. "I just hope
that it will be enough, that

To reach No. 1 for the
first time in his career,
Mickelson has to win and

a par 4.
"I had it going for a little
bit," Woods said. "I ,thought
if I could have birdied 16
and 17, I'd have been right
back in the tournament."
Even for the 14 players
separated by five shots,
so much depends on
Westwood and Allenby.
U.S. Open champion
Lucas Glover, the only
player in the top 10 with a
major, didn't make a bird-
ie until the ninth hole in
his round of 69. He was at
12-under 204, along with
Torrey Pines winner Ben
Crane (68) and Francesco
Molinari of Italy, who had
a 71.
Slocum, who won the
opening playoff event last
year against a cast of stars,
ran off three birdies in
four holes around the turn
to reach 15 under until a
three-putt from the fringe
below a steep ridge on the

13th changed everything.
Slocum also bogeyed the
15th, then dumped his tee
shot into the water on the
par-3 17th. for a double
bogey. After all that work,
he shot 72.
"What I'm going to have
to do tomorrow is play
perfect and finish strong,"
Stocum said.
His poor finish put him
at 11-under 205, three
shots behind and tied with
Tim Clark (66), Charley
Hoffman (69) and Chris
Stroud (66), a newcomer to
this stage.
Westwood closed out
both of his nines well. He
hit a towering 5-wood over
the trees on the par-5 ninth
for a simple up-and-down
for birdie, then the 6-iron
on the 18th through the
trees. His lone birdie on
the back required a small
break when his tee shot
went through some pines

and left him only an 8-iron
to the green at the par-5
Allenby's only blemish
on the back nine looked
ugly - a bladed lob wedge
through the 12th green. He
was in a divot in the rough,
however, and wasn't both-
ered by the bogey.
Even as he walked off the
tee and saw Slocum in the
group behind approaching
at 15 under - five shots
ahead - Allenby didn't
"That's the thing,"
Allenby said. 'You don't
know what's going to hap-
pen out there. All you can
do is just play your own golf.
But I knew I had to push it
a little bit just to try to get
within reach. Obviouslyly,
the leaderboard changed a
couple of times through the
back nine. Luckily for me,
I did well on the finishing

"Those three balanced
out really," he said. "Nigel
did have a nice game-win-
ning type drive at the end."
For the Indians, the
first scrimmage was a

said. "There was a lot of

Wilson said. "When the
offensive line made a mis-
take, those guys were com-

Wilson also praised the
way that pair played when

of the starting offensive
line (Dylan Newman, Kyle
Leland and Dylan Graham).
"Overall, the offensive
line impressed me," Wilson
said. "At first the defense
was stuffing it, but they

The Indians also had a
few players stand out with
the ball in their hands.
"Wesley Pitts was able
to get a couple of long
runs down the line when
he broke loose a couple of
times," Wilson said. "With

So far, so good: McGwire

enjoys baseball return

Associated Press

ST. LOUIS - In the dug-
oit hubbub after David
Freese's third home run
in four games, the rookie
saved a special celebratory
forearm shiver for the St.
Louis- Cardinals' new hit-
ting coach.
For Mark McGwire, it's
moments like this that have
made his closely watched
return to baseball worth-
'"To be quite honest I
didn't know what to expect
because I've never really
been in this situation,"
McGwire said in an inter-
view. "It's been very, very
It's tough to call the reha-
bilitation of McGwire's pub-
lic image anything but a
success. Earlier this week,
the Cardinals. traveled to
their fifth National League
city and, for the fifth time,
there was no discernible
public backlash for what
was viewed during the
winter as a controversial
hire. No jeering fans, no
"Cheaters Go Home!" ban-
ners, nothing.
At least, nothing nega-
"Yeah, I'd hire him,"
Phillies manager 'Charlie
Manuel said. "Because of
things I've seen him do, and
I know how much he likes
the game and how much
he'd put into it, too."
It's this kind of feedback
that's allowed McGwire to
settle into a comfortable,
behind-the-scenes role with
his old team.
"So far, so good,"
McGwire said. "I think
people have really moved
on from the subject. People
are tired of hearing about
The subject, of course,
is steroids. Last winter,
McGwire ended years of
denials and a self-imposed
exile by admitting that
he had used steroids and

human growth hormone on
and off for a decade, start-
ing before the 1990 sea-
son and including when he
broke Roger Maris' single-
season home run record
in 1998.
The confession came
in January, about three
months after he was hired
by the Cardinals and a
month before the start of
spring training. The state-
ments and interviews -
and the comfort zone he's
in now as a Cardinals coach
- were all part of a care-
fully crafted plan.
Before he came clean,
McGwire hired former
White House press secre-
tary Ari Fleischer to raise
his. chances of getting a
positive response. Fleischer
said his advice to the for-
mer home run king was
simply that he be himself.
He scoffed at the notion
that Big Mac's tearful con-
fessions had been orches-
trated, the delivery script-
"I just helped. get him
ready with what he wanted
to say," Fleischer said. "It
was Mark. Mark is emo-
tional, Mark is heartfelt. If
you're not real, if you're
not sincere, people will see
right through it."
Fleischer said he remains
in occasional contact with
McGwire and looks forward
to a get-together in New
York when the Cardinals
play the Mets in July.
It's highly unlikely
McGwire's mea culpas won
enough converts among
Hall of Fame voters to get
him into Cooperstown. The
public at large, though,
appears to have accepted
the apology.
"I think there's a power-
ful lesson in our forgiving
country," Fleischer said.
"If you acknowledge you
did something wrong, if
you ask for forgiveness and
you're sincere and people
see it, you can earn your
way back.

St. Louis Cardinals batting coach Mark McGwire (lower)
watches from the dugout as Albert Pujols bats during a
baseball game against the Philadelphia Phillies, Tuesday, in

'"That's what Mark did."
Fleischer, in fact, believes
McGwire deserves credit
for being the first promi-
nent baseball player to vol-
untarily step forward. Even
if it was a step McGwire felt
he had to take.
"Others did it because
they were outed or because
their tests came back, and
still others have fought or
are fighting," Fleischer
said. "Mark could have
stayed happily and comfort-
ably retired in Southern
California. It takes a big
man to do what he did, and
I think he and baseball are
much better for it."
The Cardinals' fears that
McGwire might become a
spring training sideshow
were never realized. After
a few days of scrutiny at
the start of camp, he's been

free to do his job in peace.
Much of a typical work
day at home in St. Louis
takes place in indoor bat-
ting cages that were off-
limits to media long before
he was hired, or just out of
the spotlight while observ-
ing Albert Pujols and MIatt
Holliday hone their batting
Unlike pitching coach
Dave Duncan, you'll never
see Big Mac step on the
field during a game to
remind Colby Rasmus what
he's liable to see on a 2-1
"It's a nonevent with
regard to what was being
written all winter," general
manager John Mozeliak
said. "He's working very
well with our players, learn-
ing his role and fitting in
quite nicely."

Orlando takes 3-0 series

lead, dominates Hawks

Associated Press

ATLANTA - Orlando
keeps on winning, even
when Dwight Howard
doesn't stand out. One more
Magic victory will finish off
the Atlanta Hawks.
Rashard Lewis scored
22 points and the backups
helped Orlando pull away
early with Howard on the
bench as the Magic romped
to another playoff blowout,
moving to the brink of their
second straight sweep with
a 105-75 victory over the
Hawks on Saturday.
Howard had 21 points
and 16 rebounds but was
hardly dominating. No
problem for the Magic, who
have so many complements
to Superman and allowed
many of them to shine in
Orlando's seventh straight
postseason victory and 13th
straight win overall.
Lewis knocked down four
3-pointers. Jameer Nelson
scored 14 points. Mickael
Pietrus chipped in with 13,
hitting three shots from out-
side the arc. Marcin Gortat,
Howard's backup, grabbed
six rebounds in less than
10 minutes. All 10 Orlando
players who got on the court
made it to the scoresheet.
The Magic are up 3-0 in
the best-of-seven series,
winning by an average mar-
gin of 29 points. Game 4 is
Monday night, and about all
the Hawks are playing for
is pride. No NBA team has
ever come back from such
a daunting deficit, and the
challenge looks even great-
er considering how well the
Magic are playing.
Atlanta never led in this

one and was trailing 24-16
when Howard picked up
his second foul with 1:45
left in the opening quar-
ter. Even with its big man
on the bench, Orlando just
kept adding to it lead.
Lewis Ait a jumper and
Gortat flew through the
lane for a dunk that gave
the Magic a 28-18 lead after
one period. The Hawks
never got the margin under
double figures again.
Orlando dazzled with
crisp passing, always seem-
ing to find the open man.
Nelson swished a 3-pointer
to make it 33-20, prompt-
ing Atlanta to call an early
timeout in hopes of finding
something, anything to slow
the Magic. No chance.
Even with only one starter
on the court, Orlando kept
the Hawks in check. By the
time Howard returned to
the game with just under
7 1/4 minutes left in the
first half, the Magic were
comfortably ahead 38-24.
After Mike Bibby missed a
3-pointer, Howard grabbed
the rebound and the Magic
worked the ball to Pietrus
for a 3-pointer that stretched
the margin to 41-24.
The Magic went to the
locker room with its biggest
lead of the half, 52-33, after
a most telling sequence.
The Hawks failed to beat
the 24-second clock and
Orlando went to the other
end for yet another trey
from Lewis. Atlanta fired
up one final miss ahead of
the clock, leaving the court
to a round of boos from the
home crowd.
Showing his frustration,
Smith pushed away a cam-
eraman who was attempting

Hawks' Mike Bibby in the second quarter of Game 3 of the
NBA Eastern Conference semifinal basketball playoffs on
Saturday, in Atlanta.

to follow him off the court.
The Hawks shot only 35
percent (29 of 83), and their
best player was the biggest
culprit. Joe Johnson made
only 3 of 15 attempts to fin-
ish with eight points. Jamal
Crawford led the Hawks
with 22 points.
Late in the third quarter,
Orlando stretched its lead
to 26 points. At that point,
Howard's numbers looked

rather mortal - 11 points
and nine rebounds. He did
the bulk of his scoring and
rebounding after the game
was long since decided.
Not too many fans were
around for the ending. When
J.J. Redick swished a 3-point-
er to make it 88-59 with more
than 8 minutes remaining,
many in the crowd popped
out of their seats and headed
for the exits.

METAIRIE, La. - Sean
Payton calmly took ques-
tions Saturday about a
lawsuit against the New
Orleans Saints, saying he
"appreciated" the interest
in a case that alleges an
attempt to cover up pre-
scription drug thefts at
club headquarters.
The Super Bowl cham-
pion coach stopped short
of responding directly to
the allegations, saying
now was not the right
time to tell his side
because civil litigation is
"Certainly, we under-
stand the questions sur-
rounding it, but Fm really
not at liberty to" answer
them, Payton said. "As
time goes forward, well

There just needs to be
the correct steps. When
you have a civil suit, those
probably become more
complicated. ... That's the
thing that's challenging."
Payton and the Saints
are trying to go about the
business of football while
the lawsuit filed by former
security director Geoffrey
Santini looms over an off-
season that until recently
was all about celebrating
the franchise's first Super

Generation Y. Also
known as the Millennials,
Generation Y consists of
those staff members that

were the children of the

Over the next seven

In order to understand

First, this generation

worthwhile and of value.
They will not just follow
orders blindly, but must be
shown how what is being
asked of them fits into the
larger picture. If you ask
them to get new training,
it is imperative that you
explain how this training
will be of value to them as
well as to the company.
When asking this
generation to work on a
project, you cannot just
tell them how to do it. If
you tell them step by step
how to do something, they
will rebel and leave your
employ. Instead, it is best
to just let them know what
outcome you want. For
example, you would not
tell one of your Generation
Y staff how to modify part
of your Website. Rather,
you would tell them what
you want the final product
to look like and let them
make it happen. Micro-
managing this generation
will not work. You just have
to let them figure out a way

Cuban state radio

warns against

hoarding rice

Associated Press
HAVANA - Facing a
shortage of rice and
anxious to reduce the
cost of importing it, Cuba
is calling on citizens not
to hoard the grain - no
mean feat in a country
that is the seventh largest
consumer of rice per capital
"We are demanding
discipline and order in
purchases," state-run Radio
Rebelde said during its
Friday newscast. "Don't
allow, under any circum-
stances, people to hoard
rice so they can later sell it
at a higher price."
The communist govern-
ment subsidizes rice and
sells it in government farm-
er's markets for 3.50 pesos
per pound, about $0.17. But
rice has become so scarce
in recent weeks that "cer-
tain unscrupulous people
are hoarding," reported the
station, which broadcasts
across Cuba and is among
the most listened to nation-
Cuban officials have
repeatedly said they hope

to increase rice production
and cut imports because of
rising prices for the crop,
most of which cash-short
Cuba has imported from
Vietnam in recent years.
The director of the
government food import
agency, Igor Montero,
told the Communist Party-
linked workers newspaper
Trabajadores in January
that this year Cuba could
be facing rice prices that
had nearly doubled what it
paid until recently.
Magaly Delgado, a 72-
year-old Havana retiree,
complained Friday that
shortages have become so
acute that she has turned
to the black market.
"I had to pay 10 or 15
pesos a pound to a reseller
near my house," she said.
Rice is a key compo-
nent of the monthly ration
Cuba's government has
maintained since 1962,
allowing islanders to
buy basic foods that also
include eggs, potatoes,
legumes, bread, sugar,
salt, cooking oil, coffee,
and a bit of chicken, fish
or beef, among other

Oops! Correcting
a Tax Error
Q Can I correct an error on
a tax return I mailed in
last month? If so, how?
ifT. Sacramento
A The 1040 form you mail in
is not the only one you can
file for each year. You can file an
amended return, via tax form
1040X - and you can even
amend an amended return later!
Not all errors require amended
returns, though. The IRS will often
find and correct small math errors,
and it might even accept your
return if it's missing a certain form
or schedule. The errors that defi-
nitely require an amended return
include ones involving your filing
status, income, deductions or
credits. Learn more from the
horse's mouth, at,
or at
Q With my initial stock invest-
ments, I've averaged gains
of around 26 percent. This short-
term success has made me wonder
what average annual returns I can
reasonably expect over, say, a
10-year period. Would 12 percent
to 15 percent be overly optimistic?
-H.C., Horseshoe Bend, Ark.
A Over the very long haul
S (many decades), the stock
market has gained about 10
percent annually, on average. ,
SThat'sjust an average, though,
and over the 10 or 20 or 30 years
in which you invest, you might
average 7 percent, or 13 percent, or
something else.
It takes a lot of skill and
work to beat the market over
the long haul, and even then,
averaging 15 percent could be a
tall order. For perspective, know
that superinvestor Warren Buffett
has averaged 20 percent over the
past 44 years, vs. 9 percent for
the S&P 500. To meet the market,
opt for broad index funds. To try
to beat it, become a lifelong
student of investing.

Parking Your Money
Many people invest in a variety
of stocks and bonds, and in tax-
advantaged retirement accounts
(such as IRAs and 401(k)s), as
well as taxable brokerage accounts.
You can save a lot of money by
parking certain investments in
certain kinds of accounts.
With taxable bonds and bond
funds, you'll do well to invest in
them through a tax-deferred or tax-
free account. That's because their
interest payments to you are taxed as
ordinary income, which
means your tax hit could be ,
25 percent or 30 percent or
even more. In a traditional
.IRA, the tax will be delayed
until withdrawal in retirement, when
you may be in a lower bracket. In a
Roth IRA, the entire withdrawal is
likely to be tax-free.
If you're someone who trades in
and out of stocks frequently, con-
sider doing so in a tax-deferred or
tax-free retirement account. Other-
wise, your gains will be short-
term ones, and therefore taxable at

economy got what it was
looking for in April: A burst
of hiring that added a net
290,000 jobs, the biggest
monthly total in four years.
The improving economy
drew so many more people
into the labor force in
search of employment that
the jobless rate rose to
9.9 percent.
The hiring last month
of 66,000 temporary
government workers to
conduct the census added
to overall job creation.
But private employers
- the backbone of the
economy - contributed
the most: A surprisingly
strong 231,000 jobs, the
most since March 2006,

President Barack Obama

he said much remains to

Americans who found a

The unemployment

to get the job done.
Making the workplace
fun is so important to this
generation. They fully
understand that they spend
more time at work than
they do at home, and as a
result, they almost demand
that their workplace is a
fun one.
The best types of fun are
things that are not planned,
such as taking a break and
having ice cream brought
in. One entrepreneur that
wework with holds a Nerf
basketball shot competi-
tion and gives away cash.
Another manager comes to
each staff meeting dressed
in a different costume.
When I had an office
(I now am semi-retired),
I had a marshmallow gun
that I had acquired from a
company we were assist-
ing. I used to go out of my
office and shoot staff just
to break up work, and I
can promise you that they
loved it when I started
shooting. I was just wor-

ried about what was going
to happen when they found
out where they could buy
these guns.
Loyalty is not one of
Gen Y's greatest attributes
as they are much more
concerned with their work ,
life experiences and will
move without much moti-
vation. After receiving his
MBA, my son went to work
with Hewett Associates in
Atlanta. He stayed there
four months before he
went to work with Home
Depot. He did not see any
problem with changing
jobs that quickly, nor did
Home Depot have a prob-
lem hiring him knowing
that he only stayed four
months on his last job. The
real reason he left was bad
management. He just did
not feel challenged.
You really have to chal-
lenge this generation as they
have such a low tolerance
for doing repetitive work.
Their attention span is very
short, and I would imagine

that this is from all of the
multitasking that they have
done all of their lives. As a
great manager, you must
find work that will constantly
challenge this generation, or
they will leave.
Throughout their early
lives, Gen Ys were con-
stantly coached in every-
thing from sports to music.
As a result, they just expect
to be mentored. While they
are very independent, they
are still looking for a great
coach. It is so important
to have coaches for these
Gen Ys.
Now make sure that you
have a plan and strategy
for managing Generation Y,
and that this plan and strat-
egy are shared throughout
the organization.
You can do this!

Clueless Abercrombie
Abercrombie & Fitch (NYSE:
ANF) will pay its CEO, Mike Jef-
fries, $4 million in one lump sum to
limit his personal use of the corpo-
rate jet. Let that sink in for a minute.
His recently amended employ-
ment agreement requires that
Jeffries now pay for any personal
use of the jet over $200,000 per
year, but that cool $4 million proba-
bly takes the sting out of having to
muster some self-control.
How clueless is Abercrombie's
management and board? The per-
sonal use of corporate jets by a cor-
poration's top brass became emblem-
atic of hubristic excess last year,
when TARP recipients such as Citi-
group and AIG scrambled to
rein in luxury expenditures.
Does Abercrombie's manage-
ment take some kind of per-
verse pleasure from repeatedly
poking shareholders straight in
the eye? Jeffries was among the
highest-paid CEOs in 2008, despite
the fact thatAbercrombie barely
broke even in 2009.
According to several surveys,
CEO pay has dropped overall for
two years running. Jeffries' pocket-
book appears to have been some-
how "recession-proof."
Given Abercrombie's indica-
tions of what really seems to
matter to its top brass (themselves),
investors would do well to stick to
retail rivals such as Aeropostale
and Buckle, both of which trade at
cheaper multiples while opera-
tionally performing extremely well
through the recession, to boot.

Q I frnS;~~

,1 ,


With warm weather here, it's time to
open the windows, swap out old
patio furniture and prepare the
home for sunny days. This year,
homeowners can take matters into
their own hands to enhance their homes with DIY
home improvement'
HGTV "Design on
a Dime" and TLC
"Unhinged" home
maintenance expert
Summer Baltzer,explains,
"Whether fixing the
kitchen sink disposal or
creating a protective
barrier against unwanted
bugs around the home,
homeowners should feel
empowered to tackle
DIY tasks this time of
year." Home maintenance
Baltzer is partnering expert Summer
with Raid Max Bug Baltzer
Barrier to offer easy and
affordable DIY tips that
homeowners with a can-do attitude can undertake to
protect their homes and families.

Be Bug Savvy
Baltzer knows protecting their home and family
against bugs is a top priority for women. In fact, the
Raid Max Bug Barrier Survey showed that almost
85 percent of women believe it is important to
protect their home from uncontrolled pests, while
six in 10 women are uncertain of how or where
bugs enter the home.
"When fighting undesired bugs, it's important to
treat the common insect entry points of the home,"
said Baltzer. "I like to use the new Raid Max Bug
Barrier which creates an invisible line of defense
against unwanted pests before they enter the home."
Proper application of the specially formulated
insecticide, with an automatic trigger that releases
a continuous, evenly dispersed spray, helps keep
unwanted pests where they belong - out of the home.

Show Unwanted Bugs Who's Boss
It can be hard to determine where uncontrolled pests
get in, so take these measures to ensure your home
and family are protected.
* Check doors and windows for small cracks or
holes where unwanted bugs can enter.
* Be sure to spray the indoor and outdoor
perimeter of the home with Raid Max Bug
Barrier, creating a line of defense.
* Simply press and hold the battery-powered
trigger to form a barrier around the home.
* Re-apply if there is heavy rainfall in your area
for a barrier of protection around the home -
for up to 12 months for German cockroaches.

Outside Cleanup
The elements can be harsh
on the exterior of the
home. Here are some tips
for taking care of some
often neglected outside
cleanup chores.

Wash Siding
Pressure washers are a '
good way to clean vinyl,
metal and some types of
masonry siding. You can
rent a pressure washer
from most rental equip-
ment dealers for around -
$50 to $75 per day.
Pressure washers deliver/
extreme pressure and can
cause damage if misused.
Safety tips: .
* Keep the pressure
washer aimed away .
from people and
animals. The pressur-
ized water stream. '
could actually pene- .
trate skin or cause
serious cuts.
* Don't use pressure --
washers while working
from ladders. The recoil
on the spray wand could throw you off balance
and off the ladder.
* Maintain a minimum of six feet away when spray-
ing water around power lines, electrical masts or
To clean wood or brick surfaces, use a detergent, such
as trisodium phosphate (TSP), warm water, and a stiff-
bristled brush..
* Work in sections from top to bottom.
* Thoroughly rinse away residue.
* Do not soak the wood - it could cause warping.
* Mildew can be cleaned with a solution of bleach
and water. Leave the solution on for about 15 min-
utes, then rinse off.

Clean Gutters
Clearing out leaves and debris that settle into gutters
ensures that gutters continue to function ii....i - l
* Start at the part of the gutter closest to tihe
* Use a trowel or gutter scoop to reno\ e debris
from the gutter and transfer it to a bucket.
* Once most of the debris has been removed, use a
hose to rinse out the gutters and downspouts.
* If a downspout is clogged. try clearing it with a
plumber's snake to loosen the debris. Then use the
hose to get it all out.

Prepare the Air
Bring your house out of winter hibernation - start from the inside out by
cleaning the filter and the air-conditioning unit.
Dirty filters restrict air flow, which means the unit uses more energy to
work. You should replace or clean killers every one or twvo months.
To clean a reusable filter:
* Remove it from the unit.
a Lay it flat in a sink and sprinkle surface with laundry detergent, then
cover it with about one inch of hot water. Soak for 151 minutes.
* Remove and rinse with warm water. IHang up to dry.
The condenser unit is the part of the air conditioning system that's out-
side your house. Getting rid of accumulated dirt, dust and la in mowinl
debris helps it run more 11 ii. .1i i .
* Turn off power to the unit before cleaning.
* Trim grass, shrubs or other plants that Iave grown around the conden-
ser unit and imay be restricting air flow.
* (lean the unit by spraying it \\ ith a garden hose. If it's really dirty.
Vyou ma\ nieeLd to clean the blades with a soft brush and use a coil
clealling solution.
a If cleaners ire used. in;ke sure the unil is rinsed thoroughly.

'land of


'hen Ponce
de Leon
traveled in
Florida 500

V years ago,
he named it the "Land of
Flowers." What a colorful
sight those native wildflow-
ers must have been for
those early visitors. The
Florida Department of
Transportation has made
it possible for visitors and
Floridians to enjoy the
beauty of those wildflow-
ers, also, while traveling
around Florida's highways
and byways.
The roadside right-of-
way wildflower program
actually had its humble
beginnings in 1963. As the
story goes, pasture grass
that was heavily seeded
with crimson clover was
used to sod a roadway proj-
ect near Tallahassee. The
public was so enamored
with the blooming clover
along the road that the idea
of roadside flowers began
to form.
One purpose of the wild-
flower program is "the con-
servation and protection of
Florida's natural resources
and scenic beauty." Besides
being absolutely beauti-
ful, the colorful sights
are believed to improve
safety on the highways by
increasing driver alertness.
Stands of wildflowers don't
need to be mowed as often
as grass, so there is an eco-
nomic benefit due to lower
maintenance costs. Sounds
like we win-win.
Where did these lovely.
roadside native wildflowers
come from? Many of the
plants that you see were
naturally occurring wild-
flowers that have been very
well managed by special-
ists. With the use of proper
management practices
such. as timely mowing,
natural wildflower popula-
tions have been preserved
and even expanded. In"
addition, some native wild-
flower seeds are obtained
from Florida sources and
are planted.
The most colorful road
displays in North Florida
are from late April into June.
The environments around
the state are different but
some wildflowers can be
found throughout Florida.
Some to watch for this
spring are coreopsis, pink
and purple annual phlox,
blanket flower and black-
eyed Susan. You may see
blue-eyed grass, which is
not really a grass at all, but a
relative of the garden iris.
Coreopsis, our state
wildflower, is even popular
in home gardens. There
are 15 Coreopsis species
that grow in Florida, and
they are all bright yellow
except for the pink swamp
coreopsis. Most coreop-
sis, or tickseed, which
grow along our roads, are
Leavenworth's tickseed
or lanceleaf tickseed.
Lanceleaf tickseed is short
and has a completely yel-
low flower. Leavenworth's
tickseed grows taller and
has a yellow flower with a
brownish center.

Sarah Sandlin, of Lake
City, suggested the class to
the department. Her sons
attended a similar course
when they were younger,
and she wanted to bring it
to Lake City.
"I have a 3-year-old, and
there is nothing like this in
town," she said.
Classes are geared.
for children up to 5 and
include songs, rhythm
sticks, instruments and
"It gets kids to know
their left and right and
how to follow directions,"
Sandlin said. "A lot of it
is just learning to follow
directions in a group set-
ting. It helps them for
The first class had 15
children ranging from
babies to 4-year-olds.
Sandlin's daughter, Avery,
3, also was in the class.
"They did great," she
said. "Everyone did it at
their own level."
Parents in attendance
also seemed to enjoy the
class, she said.
"Moms love seeing their
own kid do an activity,"
Sandlin said. "And they'll
be able to enjoy it with
their child."
Sandlin teaches a Zumba
fitness class for the parks
and recreation department
and promoted Roniper
Rhythm to its members.
Moss is in the class and
thought Romper Rhythm
was a creative way for chil-
dren to get active and learn
developmental skills, she

"(Sandlin) did a won-
derful job," Moss said. "It
helps the development of
their coordination."
Georgia Chamberlin,
of Lake City, is a Zumba
participant and wanted
to test out the waters of
Romper Rhythm. She
brought her 15-month-old
son, Fletcher, and 2-year-
old niece, Mara, and their
grandmother, Joanne
The class gives children
the opportunity to run wild
and be around other chil-

dren, she said.
Joanne Chamberlin has
taken her grandchildren to
storytime at the Columbia
County Public Library
but nothing like Romper
Rhythm, she said. They
learn different skills from
following directions to
moving to a rhythm.
"I thought it was won-
derful," she said. "The kids
jumped for joy."
The class helped chil-
dren release their energy,
said Alesha Waller, of Lake
City. She also learned of

Romper Rhythm through
"I thought it was awe-
some," she said.'
Introducing the children
to the music at a young age
will help with developing
math skills, Waller said.
They're also learning about
the importance'of fitness
and health.
Waller said she plans
to continue attending the
classes and to invite her
friends to come.
"The more the merrier,"
she said.

Special testing for students with disabilities

H ave you ever
taken a test
in Braille
or an oral
exam with an
American Sign Language
interpreter asking you the
questions? What would
happen if this was the
standard way that all tests
were given? How could
you take these tests, if you
don't know how to read
Braille and you don't know
American Sign Language?
The answer, of course, is
accommodations. Testing
accommodations are spe-
cial conditions that are
applied for someone who
may not be able to see,
hear, write or even think
cognitively as fast as the
average person. There is
nothing wrong with this
- after all, you would be
in need of accommodations
yourself if presented with
a written exam in nothing
but Braille. Many people
may think because of their
disabilities that college is
out of the question. They
are riddled with a sense
of trepidation over how
they could possibly pass an
entrance exam or even the
final exam once in a class. I
am writing to say, have no
fear, accommodations are
here, and they are pres-
ent to lend that little extra
helping hand people need

tions about this brave new
world of special conditions
for testing, so let's try to
shed some light on the
The first step is to
identify yourself with the
college's office of disability
services; these sensitive
people are the most impor-
tant step in getting those
amazing, top-secret test-
ing conditions that a test
center can offer only to an
elite few. Once identified
with a particular disability,
the conditions are set and
provided to eliminate any
problems they may cause
while an individual is test-
ing. There are several
types of accommodations
that can be provided;
vision, hearing, cognitive
and even physical disabili-
ties have their own unique
Achilles' Heel we can tar-
get with accommodations
once disability services

has painted the cross-hairs
on our mark. Then it is
simply up to you to pres-
ent your accommodation
letter, or simply ask for
your accommodations and
the test center will verify
and present you with the
accommodations you need
to conquer the exam. This
just doesn't stop at the test
center; these accommoda-
tions can be provided in
the classroom as well for
the duration of your col-
lege career.
Accommodations provid-
ed vary greatly and are all
dependent on the disability
the individual has identi-
fied. Some of the special
conditions that are pro-
vided are alternative ver-
sions of exams a standard
person takes when enter-
ing into college. These
,alternative exams may be
in the form of an audio
version, Braille version or
even a paper exam instead
of a computer-based test.
It's amazing as to how an
alternative version can
send test scores soaring
up, since people usually do
better on tests when they
can actually read the ques-
tion. Other adjustments
that can be made include
lengthening the exam time
for those who may be slow
readers or need just a few
extra moments to prepare

their thoughts. Also, a
quiet nook for private test-
ing can also be provided
if individuals have trouble
with filtering out noise and
distractions associated with
some disabilities. There
are several more accommo-
dations, but rest assured
the right one will be pro-
vided at the right time if
you need it.
A glorious new world
of opportunities is avail-
able for those who wish
to seek it. The road ahead
is not easy, even with
testing accommodations;
furthering one's education
is serious work. However,
it's safe to say a disability
is no reason or excuse to
not begin a journey that
changes you for the rest
of your life. Everyone
needs help from time to
time with something in
their life, so let the Office
of Disability Services at
any college, in conjunction
with their test center, help
you become something
you have always aspired
to be. With the right help,
lots of work, and a heart
full of courage, any man
or woman can have some-
thing they have dreamed
of, and make their aspira-
tions a reality.

Study: Unmarried, educated moms on rise

Associated Press
New mothers in the U.S.
are increasingly older and
better educated than they
were two decades-ago,
according to a study on the
state of American mother-
hood released Thursday by
the Pew Research Center.
But that doesn't mean
women are waiting for the
right moment: The study
also found that half of
mothers surveyed said par-
enthood "just happened."
While most women
giving birth are doing it
within the context of mar-
riage, researchers said a
record 41 percent of births
were to unmarried women
*in 2008. That's up from
28 percent in 1990, accord-
ing to the study, "The New
Demography of American
Motherhood." The trend
crossed major racial and
ethnic groups.
Nearly 14 percent of
mothers of newborns
were 35 or older two years
ago - and only about
10 percent were in their
teens. The age trend was
reversed in 1990, when
teens had a 13 percent

share of births.
"I think everyone will
welcome a decline in births
to teens," said D'Vera
Cohn, a senior writer on
the study. "It's notable that
the population of teens is
larger than it used to be,
so there were more who
could have become teen
Today, one in seven
babies is born to a mother
at least 35 years old. In
1990, one in 11 had a moth-
er in that age group.
Most mothers of new-
borns (54 percent) had at
least some college educa-
tion in 2008, an increase
from 41 percent in 1990.
Among mothers 35 br older,
71 percent had at least
some college education.
Improvements in medical
care and fertility treatment,
along with marriage and
childbearing postponed to
seek additional education,
all factor into the shifts.
"The rise in women's
education levels has
changed the profile of the
typical mother of a new-
born baby," the report said.
Cohn added that a lower
share of mothers ended
their education after high

school, "so some of those
mothers who would have
been high school gradu-
ates in 1990 have some col-
lege education today."
The report is based on
data from the National
Center for Health Statistics
and the U.S. Census
Bureau, along with a tele-
phone survey in April 2009
of about 1,000 parents, like-
ly parents and other adults
of both genders.
Overall, there were
4.3 million births in the
U.S. in 2008, compared
with 4.2 million in 1990.
The number had risen
each year from 2003
to 2007, then dipped in
an apparent link to the
economic downturn, the
researchers said.
When American par-
ents are asked why they
decided to have a child,
most cite "The joy of hav-
ing children," the study
said. For nearly half of par-
ents, though, an important
explanation is: "It wasn't a
decision; it just happened."
Women surveyed were
more likely than men to
cite "it just happened" as
somewhat or very impor-
tant in their decision to

give birth the first time.
Stephanie Coontz, direc-
tor of research and public
education for the nonprofit
Council on Contemporary
Families and a writer who
teaches history and family
studies at The Evergreen
State College in Olympia,
Wash., said the rise of single
motherhood is significant.
"It's yet another nail in
the coffin in the hope that
we can solve the challenges
facing us today by shoe-
horning everyone back into
marriages," she said. "One
of the big problems with
that at this point is very
often kids do worse if their
mother rushes into a mar-
riage that may be unstable."
Multiple births associ-
ated with the trend toward
older motherhood were up
sharply, including a
70 percent increase in the
twin birth rate from 1980
to 2004.
* "Not only are women
in their 30s more likely
than younger women to
conceive multiples on their
own, they also are more
likely to undergo fertil-
ity treatments, which are
linked to births of multi-
ples," the researchers said.

NEW YORK - Much is
made of the non-maternity
clothes an expectant moth-
er can wear during preg-
nancy - the wrap dresses,
the leggings, the boxy shift

but some maternity clothes
also do double duty once
the baby is born, especially
in the period not always
affectionately dubbed "the
fourth trimester."
"For the four months

after the baby, most women
are in their fourth trimes-

Congregation prays for relief

from choir director's wife

DEAR ABBY: Our small
church choir has a talented
volunteer director. His wife,
"Martha," is an energetic .
and animated soprano who
has a reasonably good voice
in her range.
Unfortunately, Martha
sings louder than all of the
other choir members, and
she ends many songs by
trying to reach a final high
note. The problem is her -
high notes are often flat
and sound more like a cat's
scream. No one likes it.
The congregation is
held hostage to Martha's
screams because they're
afraid of losing her hus-
band's free directing ser-
vices. How can we convince
Martha to cut out the high
notes? - COVERING
Because Martha's impro-
visations are distracting
the congregation - which
I assume is larger than
the choir - your spiritual
leader should have a private
chat with the director and
explain that "the congrega-
tion" would prefer the choir
perform the hymns exactly
as they are written. It should
get the message across
without being personally
offensive. And it's not as if
you're all asking that his
wife not perform, just that
she tone it down.
DEAR ABBY: I was in

Abigail Van Buren
line at the pharmacy yester-
day and one clerk was on
duty with the pharmacist. I
waited my turn and asked
for my prescription. She
had to go check on it, so
I sat down to wait. In the
meantime, two other cus-
tomers came in and waited
in line. The clerk called my
name, then asked me to
get back in line. Shouldn't
I have been taken care of

ed being served wait longer

'Iron I
AP Movie Critic
ots of things get
blown up and
torn apart in
"Iron Man 2,"
as you would
expect from any self-
respecting blockbuster
kicking off the summer
movie season. The mag-
nitude of destruction far
exceeds that of its prede-
cessor - from rows of
cars to armies of drones
to Tony Stark's cliff-top
Shangri-La - and includes
repeated instances of char-
acters walking away from
a massive fireball without
looking back. 'Cause look-
ing back is for wimps.
But that's not all that
gets obliterated here. The
substance of the original
"Iron Man," the brain and
the soul that set it apart
from the typical seasonal
fare and made it one of
the best films of 2008, also
have been blown to bits.
Narratively, "Iron Man
2" is a mess. Director Jon
Favreau, working from a
script by Justin Theroux,
throws in too-many sub-
plots, too many characters
- and what a waste of
that cast, actors who can
really act like Mickey
Rourke, Sam Rockwell,
Don Cheadle and Samuel
L. Jackson in an eye patch
as Nick Fury, offering a bit
of foreshadowing to "The
Avengers" film. (For more
Marvel movie geekery,
stick around until the end
of the credits.)
As we recall from the
last line of the first film,
the whole world knows
that Stark is indeed Iron
Man. Now the government
(led by Garry Shandling
as a sniveling senator)
wants him to turn over
the suit for the military's
benefit, and his best friend,
Lt.-Col. James "Rhodey"
Rhodes (Cheadle in place of
Terrence Howard) can only
do so much to protect him.
Meantime, there's a
new foe in the form of
Russian bad guy Ivan Vanko
(Rourke, buried beneath
tattoos and a Boris-and-
Natasha accent), who's built

Parker-Pope's 'For Better' takes

a scientific look at marriage

Associated Press
* Countless self-help
books have been written
about marriage. Ifs the
rare work, however, that
has the rigor and factual
grounding of "For Better:
--The Science of a Good
- Marriage."
Written with a sharp eye
by New York Times health
reporter Tara Parker-
Pope, the book examines
research studies on mar-
riage and distills their
findings into lessons for
couples. Some are more
convincing than others.
Researchers have found, for
example, a parallel between
housework and sex: The
happier wives are about
the division of chores, the
happier husbands are with
their sex lives.
The book is most useful
in the neat interactive and
introspective exercises that
demonstrate a research
finding or help readers
diagnose the state of their
marriage. Parker-Pope art-
fully expounds on technical
studies with layman-friend-
ly examples.
Many of the scientifically
proven predictors of divorce
can act as a red flag for
couples to intervene before
things escalate. If you find
yourself telling your how-
we-met story cynically,

quently rolling your eyes
