Authorities strike

joint agreement

for rapid response


Program allows
easy way to track
missing persons.


From staff reports


A joint agreement with a
Florida program could ben-
efit local law enforcement
officers in the event a child
or other local residents go
missing.
The Lake City Police
Department has an agree-
ment with A Child Is
Missing Alert Program that
could help the agency more
easily track down missing
persons with the assistance
of local citizens.
The program, which
went into effect locally this


week, allows LCPD officials
to remain in constant con-
tact with A Child Is Missing
Alert Program staff when a
person is reported missing.
LCPD investigators would
contact the program's
call center, based in Fort
Lauderdale, which will initi-
ate a rapid process of infor-
mation gathering and use
of sophisticated mapping'
systems.
A Child is Missing then
launches potentially thou-
sands of calls within min-
utes with an alert mes-
sage detailing the person's
description, last known
whereabouts and other
pertinent information. The

$75M mansion
selling 'as is'
WINDERMER-- The
brochure promises a "mon-
ument to unparalleled suc-
cess," clearly not the usual
property squeezed into the
real estate pipeline.
For Sale: 90,000-square-
foot home. Twenty-three
bathrooms. Thirteen
bedrooms. Ten kitchens.
Twenty-car garage. Three
pools. A bowling alley.
Indoor-roller rink. Two-
story movie theater. Video
arcade. Fitness center.
Baseball field and two ten-
nis courts. All that and
more for $75 million "as
is."
The catch? It's not fin-
isled.
Nicknamed "Versailles"
by owner and timeshare
tycoon David Siegel,
the massive mansion
hit the market recently
as the largest home for
sale in the' United States.
Construction was halted
last year to save money
in a recession that proved
particularly hard on
Siegel's once-booming
industry, so there's an
option to buy the com-
pleted property at $100
million.
'This mansion is a great
anecdote of the overcon- -,
sumption that led to the
housing bust, and it might
be the poster child of such
overindulgence," said Jack
McCabe, a Florida-based
real estate analyst

Scalloping for fun
Bob Home, 55, of Miami (left), and Tom Brechtel, 65, of
the Villages in Sumter County dive for scallops Monday
in the Gulf of Mexico, three miles from the mouth of the
Steinhatchee River. The state of Florida opened up scallop
fishing 2 weeks early because of the gulf oil spill.


Monday of state officials
who said they lacked data
needed to determine how
much the state is losing
because of the spill in the
Gulf of Mexico.
That includes sales tax
losses resulting from tour-
ists staying away and resi-
dents buying less because
they've lost income.
The spill also. is expect-
ed to depress real estate
values and that will mean
a decline in property tax
revenue.

Cricket farm
wiped out by virus
LEESBURG - A large
commercial insect farm
that provided millions of
crickets to Florida theme
parks, zoos and reptile
owners has been silenced
by a quick-spreading virus.
The Lucky Lure Cricket
Farm in central Florida
has been forced to file for
bankruptcy after a virus
contaminated the facility
aind wiped out the cricket
colonies earlier this year.
The densovirus is also
believed to have destroyed
similar farms in Europe,
and has caused a nation-


wide shortage of,crickets,
a staple food for pet lizards
"and other reptiles.

-6 charged
in burglaries
MIAMI - Six people
have been arrested in
what authorities are call-
ing a high-end burglary
ring that targeted upscale
homes and took in jewelry
totaling more than $2 mil-
lion.
The arrests were
announced by the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement on Monday.
Investigators say more
than four dozen burglaries
took place between June
2009 and May of this year,
targeting upscale homes
in gated communities from
Miami to Jupiter.
The suspects would usu-
ally enter through a rear
sliding glass door and take
jewelry including rings,
gold bracelets, watches
and other expensive items.
In one case, the burglars
took a safe with $500,000
worth of jewelry and drove
off in the homeowner's
Bentley.

Iowa man arrested

as burglary suspect


From staff reports

An Iowa man was arrest-
ed Sunday morning after
attempting to burglarize a
local business, according
to law enforcement reports
released Tuesday.
Carl Wayne Anderson,
56, of Des Moines, Iowa,
was charged with attempt-
ed burglary and booked
into the Columbia County
Detention Facility.
According to Lake City
Police Department reports,
at around 6:26 a.m. Sunday,
officers responded to 268
NW Hillsboro St. in ref-
erence to a possible bur-
glary.
The owner of the busi-
ness, who also lives at the
residence, alerted authori-
ties that a black man was


attempting to break into
the business, and when
officers arrived, they found
Anderson lying on the
porch.
According to reports, offi-
cers questioned Anderson
and during the course of the
investigation discovered a
damaged screen, indicating
that a possible break-in was
under way. The suspect was
apprehended.
Sgt. John Blanchard,
LCPD public information
officer, said it is believed
the suspect thought the
business was unoccupied
and didn't know the owner
lived there as well.
Anyone with information
about this incident or oth-

UTILITY: Funding issues


Continued From Page 1A

Williams also .said the
grant funds, if approved,.
could cover impact and tap
fees to the utility's custom-
ers.
The utility's existing
owner is trying to trans-
fer the utility to the county
because she can no lon-
ger maintain it financially,
Williams said.,
Commissioner Jody
DuPree, committee chair-
man, and Williams said fhe
City of Lake City should
take ownership of the util-
ity. DuPree &.Jd the city
was already approached by
the utility's existing owner.
"In our minds, it would've
been more prudent for the
city," DuPree said, after the
meeting, " ... to just accept
it."
Dupree noted the exis-
tence of water lines owned`
by the city. "But the city
don't want to do it because,
they don't want to spend
the money for the system,"
he said. "They could actu-
ally put city water in there
and abandon the entire sys-
tem." '
DuPree also said the
county will try-to work
together with the city after
applying for the CDBG.


The College Manor util-
ity is about 50 years old. It
uses 65,000 gallons per day
and serves approximately
47 residences.

OUR
OPINION


Taking the

fight to the

oil spill

f there is any bright
spot in the oily sludge
that is now washing
over Florida's beaches,
it's this - Columbia
County's own are on-site and
performing above the call of
duty to ease the situation.
An armada of Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission trucks and boats
left Lake City last weekend ,for
a seven-day deployment in the
Gulf of Mexico. Although we
are now 65 days into the spill,
little is certain about what these
officers can do to stem the
damage to Florida's waters and
shoreline. Yet we do know this:
This duty will be no day at the
beach.
FWC officers taking part in
Operation Deepwater are work-
ing with a toxic substance in
heat indices on the water top-
ping 115 degrees. They are per-
forming meaningful yet taxing
work: escorting, transporting,
monitoring and providing secu-
rity. And perhaps worse, they
are doing this while watching
an advancing army of oil creep
up a coastline that they have
sworn to protect
Despite these challenges,
the mood before Saturday's
deployment was encouraging.
These officers had made up
their minds to leave defeatist
attitudes at home and attack
the problem with ingenuity and
integrity. These officers are a
model for the reclamation of
Florida's beaches and coastal
economy.

Brace yourself for vuvuzelas


S ome of the complaints
about the vuvuzela
- the three-foot-long
plastic horn that
furnishes the
relentless background noise at
World Cup matches - have had
racial or ethnic overtones. The
horn's defendershave asserted
that this is the way they do
football in South Africa, so get
used to it Some of the
vuvuzela's opponents, on the.
other hand, have made the
unseemly implication that it's a
black thing.
Maybe. But if it's a black
thing, it's only because they
thought of it first. In fact, allow
me-to predict that we'll begin
to hear vuvuzelas blaring in our
own American football stadiums
this fall.
Let's hope not, though.
American sporting events -
and movies and rock concerts
and television commercials and
ear buds - are already'very,
very loud.
A few years ago curiosity led
me to sneak a decibel meter
into a ballgame between the
Milwaukee Brewers and the
Astros at Houston's Minute
Maid Park, an attractive modern
ballpark built along traditional
lines, the perfect setting for
a quiet, relaxing afternoon of
baseball.
Well, not exactly quiet. The
traditional sounds of the game
- the natural murmur of the
crowd and the occasional roar,
in response to a hit or good
fielding play - were often over-


LETTERS TO


America must ween
itself from oil
To the Editor:
We passed Day No. 64 of the
Gulf oil spill and we still haven't
become serious about stopping
it or cleaning it up. We have
turned down many offers of
help from experienced oil han-
dlers (example: Saudi Arabia)
who have experience with many
oil spills and have many boats
or ships with experience in the
subject and who have offered to
come and help us with the clean
up.
I hope this spill has taught
us a lesson on drilling for oil
- especially on land. We, as
Americans, must, and I repeat,
'must depend on oil for our very
existence.
Everything we buy today to
live has oil or a derivative of oil
in it and we must drill to find it
in abundance.
We can only hope that this
will free us from the oppression
of the environmentalists who
control where we drill.
I have already seen wild
animals feeding around the
operating wells in parts of
Alaska. They aren't afraid of
an operating oil well. They

whelmed by powerful electronic
supplements. The loud music
between innings and electronic
'encouragements to yell or clap
were deafening. Literally.
In fact, according to my
meter, the decibel levels often
reached the mid-to-upper 90s,,
about the level that one would
experience standing near to
a power mower. A chainsaw
reaches 100 decibels.
But these ear-splitting levels
are tame compared to the vuvu-
zela. In April 2010 the South
African Medical Journal report-
ed that a vuvuzela blower will
be absorbing about 106 deci-
bels; the guy sitting in the row
in front of him could be hearing
as much as 122 decibels.
But not for long. Most orga-
nizations concerned with hear-
ing loss agree that the damage
begins at around 85 decibels.
The extent is proportional to the.
time of exposure, but the harm
is cumulative and irreversible.
In short, World Cup crowds
and players, just by being at the
games, are experiencing hear-
ing loss in varying degrees, and
if vuvuzelas make their way into
our sporting events, we will suf-

U.S. offers opportunity,
not a free ride
To the Editor:
During his campaign for pres-
ident, Barack Obama made the
comment that America wasn't
what it used to be, and now that
he is president he is most cer-
tainly correct.
Why have we gotten away
from our founding principles?
Why is it that having an educa-
tion, working hard and wanting
better for our family doesn't
have as much importance any-
more?
Education used to be the way
to get ahead. The U.S. hsed to
be No. 1 in the world in educa-
tion, but now we are No. 10 and
falling. Why aren't our leaders
doing more to educate and
keep our children in school? I
put the blame on government
regulations, teachers and par-
ents. Let's not worry about self-
.esteem, but good grades.
Hard work used to be the
way to make money for food
and shelter. So why are we
giving money to people that


fer'hearing loss, as well, accu-
mulated with the damage that
occurs elsewhere in our very,
loud and electronic culture.
World Cup players are hav-
ing trouble communicating
on the field, the same effect
that American football fans are
airing for when they try to
smother the other team's snap
count with noise. I'm not at all
sure why we don't consider this
unsportsmanlike conduct.
In any case, most sports
develop a natural rhythm and
feel that depend to a certain
extent on sound and that is vio-
lated by too much noise from
the crowd or from the public
address-system.
Spectators should remember
that the play's the thing and
that their role is important, but
peripheral. Their participation
should be a natural extension of
the game itself, not encouraged
or controlled by excessive elec-
tronics or amplified by devices
like the vuvuzela.
So if the vuvuzela starts
appearing in any significant
way in our football stadiums
and ballparks - look for. it!
- football fans will suffer more
hearing loss. But baseball, a
traditional game that rewards
focus and concentration, is
already a very noisy affair in
most ballparks, and it will be
hard pressed to survive the
racket, at all.

the unemployment rate is 10

there are some who don't like
to wash dishes, pick up trash,
work in convenience stores,

available. Why shouldn't every-
one have to earn their own liv-
ing - I do!
Our founding fathers gave us
the opportunity to improve our

helped our sick and frail and
wanted our families to do bet-

the past 60-plus years, we have
elected a government that has
chosen to change the system by
giving food and shelter to those
who are capable of taking care

by those of us who chose to do
the right thing: work for a liv-

ment gets my money to take
care of the "assisted" because

General

proves he

has brass

'he general has guts.
'For the record, I
don't want a battle-
field commander .
who postures to poli-
tics when it comes to life and
death. I'm not advocating for a
maverick, but heck, somebody
has to be willing to say, "the
emperor has no clothes" if he
sees a naked man.
And whether you agree
with it or not, that's what Gen.
'Stanley McChrystal saw.
For the record, McChrystal
is where the buck stops in the
war in Afghanistan - he's the
commander of all U.S. and- ,;
NATO forces in that country.
Also for the record, that
of Rolling Stone magazine,
McChrystal and his top advi-
sors offer more than a few
bare-bones criticisms about the
current administration's han-
dling of the war effort in an as-
yet unpublished story profiling
the general. The spread, "The
Runaway General," hits news-
stands Friday, but was avail-
able as of Tuesday at Rolling
Stone's website.
How disparaging were
the commander's remarks?
As you're reading this,
McChrystal has been recalled
to the White House to address
remarks which include a com-
ment from an adviser about
the general's first meeting with
his new boss, President Barack
Obama: "Obama clearly didn't
know anything about him, who
he was. Here's the guy who's
going to run his .:. war, but he
didn't seem very engaged. The
Boss was pretty disappointed."
Other comments are directly
attributable to the general
himself.
'"Are you asking about Vice
President Biden," McChrystal
says with a laugh. "Who's
that?"' /
From a meeting in the
Pentagon, McChrystal recalled
that "Obama looked 'uncom-
fortable and intimidated' by
the roomful of military brass."
Such comments should
come as little surprise.to
Obama. His first run-in with
McChrystal followed a speech
in London at which the general
called Biden's counterterro-
ism plan "short-sighted." That
remark earned the general
a dressing down aboard Air
Force One.
I'm not surprised that
McChrystal speaks his mind.
The man is a military legend.
According to Rolling Stone
and the general's advisors,
he sleeps four hours a night,
runs seven miles every
morning and eats one meal
a, day. During his time in
Afghanistan, McChrystal's wife
of 33 years has seen her hus-
band less than 30 days a year.
The general is focused.
And obviously frustrated.
Gen. Stanley McChrystal is
no dummy. A warrior achieves
such a leadership position by
obtaining the tactical advan-
tage. Is that's what's happening
here? ,
Maybe.
In any case, the general has
placed his boss in the hot seat.
And there is no doubt that
McChrystal's remarks have
temporarily shifted atten-
tion from where it needs
to be - on the front-line of
Afghanistan. But in the end,
McChrystal himself has
offered the best solution.
The general has apologized.
The bigger man might seize
that apology and attribute the
Rolling Stone comments to
battle-fatigued soldier.
And then behind closed
doors, such as those on today's
meeting, Obama could slap the


general on the back and thank
him for his integrity and can-
dor - and suggest that next
time he express that candor a
bit less publicly.

Judge lifts Obama's offshore drilling ban


By MICHAEL KUNZELMAN
Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS - A
federal judge struck down
the Obama administration's
six-month ban on deepwa-
.ter oil drilling in the Gulf of
Mexico as rash and heavy-
handed Tuesday, saying
the government simply
assumed that because one
rig exploded,' the others
pose an imminent danger,
too.
The White House prom-
ised an immediate appeal.
The Interior Department
had imposed the moratori-
um last month in the wake
of the BP disaster, halting
approval of any new per-
mits for deepwater projects
and suspending drilling on
33 exploratory wells.
White House spokes-
man Robert Gibbs said
President Barack Obama
believes that until investi-
gations can determine why
the spill happened, con-
tinued deepwater drilling
exposes workers and the
environment to "a danger
that the president does not
believe we can afford."
Several companies that
ferry people and supplies
and provide other servic-,
es to offshore rigs argued
that the moratorium was
arbitrarily imposed after
the April 20 explosion that

struck down the six-month ban on oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. -


killed 11 workers and blew
out a well 5,000 feet under-
water.- It has spewed any-
where from 67 million to
127 million gallons of oil..
U.S. District Judge
Martin Feldman, who was
appointed by President
Ronald Reagan and has
owned stock in a number
of petroleum-related com-
panies, sided with the plain-
tiffs.
"If some drilling equip-


*ment parts are flawed, is it
rational to say all are?" he
asked. "Are all airplanes a
danger because one was?
All oil tankers like Exxon
Valdez? All trains? All
mines? That sort of think-
ing seems heavy-handed,
and rather overbearing."
He also warned that
the shutdown would have
an "immeasurable effect"
on the industry, the local
economy and the U.S. ener-


gy supply.
The ruling was wel-
comed by the oil and gas
industry and decried by
environmentalists. .
Feldman's financial dis-
closure report for 2008,
the most recent available,
shows holdings in at least
eight petroleum companies
or funds that invest in them,
including Transocean
Ltd., which .owned the
Deepwater Horizon drill-


ing rig that blew up. The
report shows that most of
his holdings were valued at
less than $15,000; it did not
provide specific amounts.
It was not clear whether
Feldman still has any of
the energy industry stocks.
Recent court filings indi-
cate he may no longer have
Transocean stock. The
2008 report showed that he
did not own any individual
shares in big companies
such as BP, which leased
the rig that exploded, or
ExxonMobil.
Feldman did not immedi-
ately respond to a request
for more information about
his current holdings.
Josh Reichert, manag-
ing director of the Pew
Environment. Group,
:paid the ruling should be
rescinded if the judge still
has investments in com-
panies that could benefit
"If Judge Feldman has any
investments in oil and gas
operators in the Gulf, it rep-
resents a flagrant conflict
of interest," Reichert said.
Feldman's ruling pro-
hibits federal officials from
enforcing the moratorium
until a trial is held. At least
two major oil companies,
Shell and Marathon, said
they would wait to see how
the appeals play out before
resuming drilling.
In his ruling, the judge


called the spill "an unprec-
edented, sad, ugly and
inhuman disaster," but
said Interior Secretary
Ken Salazar's rationale for
the moratorium "does not
seem to be fact-specific and
refuses to take into mea-
sure the safety records of
those others in the Gulf."
Feldman said he was
"unable to divine or fathom
a relationship between the
findings and the immense
scope of the moratorium."
The judge said the blan-
ket moratorium "seems to
assume that because one
rig failed and although no
one yet fully knows why, all
.companies and rigs drill-
ing new wells over 500 feet
also universally present an
imminent danger."
The lawsuit was filed
by Hornbeck Offshore
Services of Covington, La.
CEO Todd Hornbeck said
after the ruling that he is
looking forward to get-
ting back to work. "It's 'the
right thing for not only the
industry but the country,"
he said.
Earlier in the day, execu-
tives at a major oil confer-
ence in London warned that
the moratorium would crip-
ple world energy supplies.
Steven Newman, president
and. CEO of Transocean,
called it unnecessary and
an overreaction.


Obama: General showed 'poor judgment'


SBy ANNE GEARAN
and JENNIFER LOVEN
Associated Press

WASHINGTON -
President Barack Obama
weighed whether to fire the
general charged with turn-
ing around the Afghanistan
war Tuesday, after the most
extraordinary airing of mil-
itary-civilian tensions since
Harry Truman stripped
Gen. Douglas MacArthur
of his command a half cen-
tury ago.
The White House sum-
moned Gen. Stanley
McChrystal to Washington
to explain disparaging com-
ments about his command-
er in chief and Obama's top
aides. The meeting set for
Wednesday was a last-ditch
moment for the general
once considered the war's
brightest hope.
If not insubordination,
the remarks in a forthcom-
ing Rolling Stone magazine
article were at least an indi-
rect challenge to 'civilian
management of the war in
Washington by its top mili-
tary commander.
Obama said McChrystal
showed "poor judgment"
and he wanted to talk to
him face to face before
making any decision about
the'general's job.
A senior U.S. military
official in Afghanistan told
The Associated Press the
general has been given no
indication that he'll be fired
- but 'no assurance he
won't be. The official spoke
on condition of anonymity
to describe internal discus-
sions between Washington

now say the war is proba-
bly not worth fighting, and
Defense Secretary Robert
Gates has said that public
dissatisfaction means the
U.S.-led international coali-
tion must show progress
this year.
A crucial military push to
pacify the Taliban heartland
in southern Afghanistan
is going more slowly that
McChrystal had planned,
and showing fewer solid
results. Marines in Helmand
Province are, in near-daily
firefights, months after a
push there was supposed
to clear out the bulk of


Taliban fighters.
McChrystal has spentthe
past several weeks arguing
that the U.S.-led military
effort is gaining momen-
tum against the Taliban,
while Gates argued for time
to show that McChrystal's
many changes in strategy
and tactics can succeed.
As support for the general
drained in Washington, the
showdown was set to take
place in'two parts - as part of
Obama's regular monthly war
meeting, inwhichMcChrystal
usually participates by video-
conference, and a separate
discussion with Obama in the
Oval Office.
Several names circulated
among Pentagon and Capitol
Hill aides as potential succes-
sors. Military officials, speak-
ing on condition of anonym-
ity ahead of the White House


meeting, said the adminis-
tration has not reached out
to possible successors, but
might do so on Wednesday.
"We all serve at the plea-
sure of the president," said
Gen. James Mattis, one of
those mentioned. "I have a
pretty full plate here," in his
current job as Joint Forces
Command chief, Mattis
told The Associated Press.
Other names include Lt.
Gen. John Allen, the No. 2
at U.S. Central Command;
Lt. Gen. David Rodriguez,
McChrystal's No. 2 in
Afghanistan; Gen. Martin
Dempsey, commander of
the Army Training and
Doctrine Command; and
Adm. James Stavridis, the
top NATO commander in
Europe.
Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid said: "I couldn't
believe Gen. McChrystal,
being the good soldier I
think he is, at least in this
article not being a very
good soldier."
McChrystalpublicly apol-
ogized Tuesday for using
"poor' judgment" in the
magazine interviews. He
then left Afghanistan for the
meeting in Washington.
There has been no simi-
lar public contretemps
between a president and
a top wartime command-
er since Truman relieved
MacArthur of his Far
East command in 1951.
MacArthur bid farewell
in an address to Congress
in which he quoted a line
from a ballad: "Old soldiers
never die; they just fade
away."
McChrystal will also
meet separately with Gates,


Solicitors general endorse Kagan


By JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS
Associated Press

WASHING GT,O N
SIberal and conserva-
tive former solicitors gen-
eral going back 25 years
endorsed Elena Kagan on
Tuesday for the Supreme
Court, even as Republicans
stepped up their criticism of
President Barack Obama's
nominee.
. In a letter to the Senate
Judiciary Committee,
10 lawyers named by
Republican and Democratic
presidents to represent the
government before the
Supreme Court said Kagan
would serve there with dis-
tinction. The group includ-
ed noted conservatives Ted


Olson and Ken Starr, the
prosecutor who investigat-
ed President Bill Clinton
while Kagan served in his
administration.
A third GOP-named for-
mer solicitor general who
signed the letter, Paul
Clement, joined a confer-
ence call organized by the
White House to praise
Kagan.
Still, Sen. Jeff Sessions
of Alabama, called Kagan
"dangerous" and suggested
he was more worried about
her becoming a justice
than he had been about
Sonia Sotomayor, President
Barack Obama's first
Supreme Court appoint-
ment.

Personal attacks mar Democrats' Senate debate


By KELLI KENNEDY
Associated Press

WEST PALM BEACH
- Democratic U.S. Senate
candidates Jeff Greene and
Rep. Kendrick Meek might
agree on immigration, gay
rights and offshore drill-'
ing but both preferred to
stray from those issues and
launch personal attacks dur-
ing a debate Tuesday.
Meek said the Palm
Beach billionaire created
financial weapons of mass
destruction by profiting
off the collapse of the real
estate market. Greene was
among the few who fore-
saw the housing bubble and
jumped on the winning end
of complex financial deriva-
tives that caused some Wall
Street investment banks to
collapse.
"Mr. Greene was pray-
ing that they would lose


their homes so he would
profit and become a billion-
aire," Meek said, and now
he's using those riches to
buy his way into the Senate
race.
Greene, a political out-
sider who has spent about
$4 million on the campaign
including a heavy rotation
of TV ads, is in a near tie
with Meek, according to a
recent poll.
Greene shot back by call-
ing Meek a career politi-
cian in the pocket of spe-
cial-interest groups and
encouraged him to call for a
congressional investigation
into a real estate scandal
involving. Meek's mother
and former chief of staff.
"Not a single Floridian
lost a penny because of
the investments I made,"
Greene said. "The collapse
happened because of you,"
"You held subprime


seminars in your district.
You encouraged people to
take on these subprime
loans that you knew or
should have known they
would have no ability to pay
back."
Meek's former aide
received $13,000 from a
developer trying to curry
favor with Meek to get
federal funds for a Miami
building project The devel-
oper also paid Meek's
mother, former U.S. Rep.
Carrie Meek, $90,000 in
consulting fees and paid for
a Cadillac Escalade, accord-
ing to police.
Meek said he would have
*fired his aide had he known
about the loan.
As Florida's unemploy-
ment rate reached record
levels, Greene said Meek
did nothing but create a job
for his mother.
"She's in the Women's


Hall of Fame. How dare
you attack the character
of my mother," an angry
Meek demanded, noting
she served in public office
as a single mother.
Attention on Florida's
heated Senate race has
focused largely on Gov.
Charlie Crist, who is run-
ning as an independent after
abandoning the Republican
Party, and conservative
Republican Marco Rubio,
the tea party favorite who
forced Crist out of the
GOP


Two months ago, politi-
cal analysts expected that
Crist's shift to indepen-
dent would split the GOP
vote and give Meek, who
appeared a shoo-in for the
Democratic nomination, an
outside chance of winning
the seat. Now Crist is court-
ing groups that historically
supported Democrats, and
Greene's television blitz
has put him in serious con-
tention to upset Meek in
the Aug. 24 primary.
"I want to put an end
to this culture of corrup-


tion and bribery once and
for all," Greene said in the
opening of the debate host-
ed by The Palm Beach Post,
adding he would not take
money from special interest
groups.
"Jeff Greene, you are spe-
cial interest," Meek said,
and accused Greene of run-
ning a "Republican-style"
attack campaign.
"Mr. Greene has been
nasty from the beginning.
He's trying to cover his
own past," Meek said after
the debate.

But I'm looking forward to
nailing it."

Decision day for U.S.


Americans' World
Cup fate to be
determined today.
By RONALD BLUM
Associated Press
PRETORIA, South Africa
- One more game, one
last chance to make their
reputation.
When the Americans
play Algeria at the World
Cup today they'll either live
up to all the hype and earn
a spot among the final 16
teams - or fall painfully
short of their long-stated
goal and lose a watershed
opportunity.
"We have a great chance
tomorrow night to get a
win and advance on to the
second round," captain
Carlos Bocanegra said
Tuesday. "It's important for
us because we had that dis-
appointment in '06. It's not
really extra motivation, but
it's just in the back of our
minds. You work so hard


and you train for so long for
the World Cup, and it can
be over so quickly if you
don't advance."
A victory or possibly a
tie would move the United
States into the knockout
rounds on a high that will
set off midday celebrations
back home. Replicate the
loss to Ghana that knocked
the U.S. out in 2006, and
it will start a new round
of soul-searching for what
could cost coach Bob
Bradley his job - not to
mention dampening the
burgeoning enthusiasm for
soccer in America.
Since returning to the
World Cup in 1990 following
a 40-year absence, the U.S.
has alternated first-round
elimination ('90, '98 and '06)
with a second-round appear-
ance at home in 1994 and a
trip to the quarterfinals in
South Korea in 2002.
This World Cup started
with a come-from-behind
1-1 tie against glamor-
ous England. Then the


Americans trailed Slovenia
by two goals at halftime
only to fight back as Landon
Donovan and Michael
Bradley scored for a 2-2
draw. They appeared to go
ahead, but Maurice Edu's
85th-minute goal was disal-
lowed for reasons referee
Koman Coulibaly of Mali
didn't explain.
"We're not going to worry
about any calls or anything
like that getting us down,"
Bocanegra said. "We had a
good second half and hope-
fully we can continue with
that momentum and put
that into the Algeria game."
The U.S. has never before
faced the Desert Foxes,
who have yet to score in
this tournament following
a 1-0 loss to Slovenia and a
0-0 draw against England.
Algeria can advance only
with a win, and Les Fennecs
coach Rabah Saadane
repeatedly used the phrase
"God willing" in reference

Tiger Woods (right) and caddie Steve Williams stand on the 18th green during the fourth
round of the U.S. Open golf tournament Sunday at the Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble
Beach, Calif.


Lost opportunity at Open


By DOUG FERGUSON
Associated Press

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.
- Even with 21 majors,
they still had everything to
gain by winning the U.S.
Open,
For Tiger Woods, a
chance to end six months,
of bad publicity with a 15th
major. For Phil Mickelson,
a golden opportunity to win
something other than sil-
ver in the U.S. Open. For
Ernie Els, a much-needed
reminder that his best golf
in the majors is not behind
him.
Forgetting about Sunday
at Pebble will not be easy.
Woods didn't know this
when he started the final
round with a three-putt
bogey, but he had to shoot
only par-71 to join Jack
Nicklaus, Ben Hogan and
Bobby Jones as four-time
U.S. Open champions..
He shot 75 and remains
tied with Hale Irwin.
Els was tied for the lead
in the final round, for about
only 15 minutes, but he had
not been in that position at
a major in six years. Worse,
than his bogey-double
bogey-bogey stretch along
the coast was missing three
putts inside 8 feet in a four-
hole stretch late in the


round.
As for Mickelson?
He started with a birdie
and never made another
one the rest of the day.
Mickelson knows as well
as anyone that bogeys are
acceptable in a U.S. Open.
What hurt him were a series
of pars in the first hour,
none more painful than the
328-yard fourth hole. He hit
a 3-wood to 15-feet for eagle
and three-putted for what
must have felt like a bogey.
The winner was .Graeme
McDowell, who made only
one birdie in his round of 74
to win a U.S. Open where
the stars didn't shine.
It wasn't the first time this
has happened in a major.
Seven years'ago in the
British Open, three of the
top 10 players in the world
challenged for the claret jug.
on the back nine of Royal St
George's - Woods, Davis
Love III and Vijay Singh
- only to finish in the top,
five behind surprise winner
Ben Curtis.
For all the majors that,
Woods, Mickelson and Els
have won, they know some-
thing about losing. All of
them have had close calls
at least a half-dozen times
in majors, when the cham-
pionship turns on a putt or
a bounce.


In this case, it's a ques-
tion of whom it hurts the
most
Woods is desperate for a
victory to shift focus from his
personal life, and to establish
anew some form of intimida-
tion he once had. Instead,
this was the third straight
major that Woods teed off in
one of the final two pairings
without winning.
He made bad swings at
Augusta. He. made poor
decisions at Pebble Beach.
No one should have been
surprised that Woods did
not play his bestgolf Sunday,
even after his 66 in the third,
round in which he finally
delivered so many special
shots that have defined
his career. He keeps talk-
ing about a "long process"
in getting his game back
together, and there's some
truth to that But he's not
there yet.
There is too much uncer-
tainty over too many shots,
and way too much commo-'
tion inside his head from
outside forces, namely the
state of his marriage .and
the unending fallout from
his affairs.
. "The two major champi-
onships I finished, I had
a chance to wift both of
them," he said. "So it's not
too bad." -

White said he expects
Orien Greene to play for
the Untouchables, along
with Jerry Edwards, Ron
Larris, Ray White and
Terry Williams. Division II
All-American Kyle Moore
also will be on the team.
"I am still trying to get in
touch with, Chris Richard,"
White said Tuesday. "John
L. Smith (who once scored
81 points in a junior col-
lege game) is 50-50. Gerald
Fields will try to play. He
strained his MCL playing in
France. He will be a game-
time decision."
Speights led all players
in scoring last year with 40


points. Ratliffe added 26 for
the Lake City.All-Stars.
The Untouchables won
the game, 122-117, as
Larris, Edwards and White
all scored more than 20
points, and Richard and
Willie Jackson joined them
in double figures.-
The game is for a good
cause, but the competitive
nature of the players is evi-
dent - especially with a
year of bragging rights for
the Untouchables.
Speights has family in
Columbia, Suwannee- and
Hamilton counties., He
works out in Las Vegas in
the summer, and is return-
ing for the charity game.
Speights averaged 8.6
points per game and 4.1
rebounds for the 76ers.
"It is going to be a great
game," Speights said from


Philadelphia. "I guarantee
my team a victory. This
year I am in shape and we
will put on a show for the
fans."
Lake City Exposure
Foundation president Adee
Farmer talked up the first
game with White, and
told White he looking for
revenge for the Lake City
All-Sta's this year.
"We will have to put him
in his place," White said.
'The Untouchables are yet
to be touched."
Speights said his repre-
sentatives will bring pic-
tures of him for the fans,
and they will try to arrange
for autographs. His brother
said they planned to film
the event and asked that
children wear T-shirts and
make signs welcoming the
players.

became the 2008 champion;
he missed last year's tour-
.nament because of knee
tendinitis.
"For me it was a very spe-
cial moment to come back
to this, probably the nicest'
Centre Court in the world,"
Nadal said. "I'm enjoying a
lot to be back in my favorite
tournament."
Neither French Open
women's finalist survived
the first round. Roland
Garros runner-up Samantha
Stosur, ranked a career-
high sixth, lost to quali-


fier Kaia Kanepi 6-4, 6-4.
Surprise French Open win-
ner Francesca Schiavone
was beaten Monday.
"No doubt it's a quick turn-
around," Stosur said. "The
champions of the game can
do it back to back. That's
the kind of pedestal that you
want to try to look up to and
try to get to yourself."
Maria Sharapova, the 2004
Wimbledonchampion, needed
only 54 minutes to beat lucky
loser Anastasia Pivovarova 6-
1, 60. No. 3-seeded Caroline
Wozniacki swept Tathiana
Garbin 6-1, 6-1.
Former top-five player
James Blake, returning
from a three-month layoff
because of a right knee
injury, lost to Robin Haase
6-2, 6-4, 6-4.


"The knee is not great,"
Blake said. "If it doesn't get
better soon, I'm not sure
how much longer I want to
play in pain."
No. 6 Robin Soderling,
runner-up at the French
Open the past two years,
beat American Robby
Ginepri 6-2, 6-2, 6-3. No. 18
Sam Querrey of the United
States won. No. 4 Andy
Murray, No. 9 David Ferrer
and No. 10 Jo-Wilfried
Tsonga also advanced.
Aside from Stosur, the
only seeded woman to lose
was No. 25 Lucie Safarova.
Four seeded men were
eliminated: No. 8 Fernando
Verdasco, No. 14 Juan
Carlos Ferrero, No. 19
Nicolas Almagro and No.
24 Marcos Baghdatis.

CUP: Americans can advance today


Continued From Page li

to a victory.
"We are in a good mood
to make our people back
home very happy," Algeria
captain Antar Yahia said.
A win would send' the
U.S. to a second-round
matchup this weekend
with Germany, Ghana,
Serbia or Australia, and
another big television audi-
ence for American soccer.
With France knocked out,
and England, Germany,
defending champion Italy
and Spain all uncertain
of reaching the knockout
stage, the U.S. could find
itself in a fairly wide-open
tournament if it advances.
Coaches will be paying
attention to the England-
Slovenia game, which will
be played simultaneously
in Port Elizabeth. If the
English lose, the U.S.
would advance with a tie. If
both the U.S. and England
draw, the Americans reach
the second round if they
maintain their goal advan-
tage over the English, cur-
rently 3-1.
It could get thorny if
the U.S. and the English
tie, and England scores
two goals more than the
Americans. Then Slovenia
would win the group and a
televised drawing of a ball
from a bowl would be held
in Johannesburg at 1 p.m.
to determine whether the


U.S. or England finishes
second.
"I think for us the con-
centration is just on get-
ting ready for the match,"
Bob Bradley said. "So
many things can happen
along the way, so we've not
put much thought into the
final way of determining
things."
Michael Kammarman,
the U.S. team's press offi-
cer, will be responsible
for keeping staff aware of
the score in the England-
Slovenia game. What hap-
pens in the other match
could determine how much
the U.S. pushes for a late
goal against the Algerians.
"You have to be .a little
careful because you want
to just play and you don't
want to, at the end of the
game, think that if we hold
onto this result that we're
going to get through and
then you get a goal scored
on you and you're out of
it," Donovan said. "So you
have to play, but.you have
to also be aware of what
the other result is."
Going into their first-
round finale in 2002, the
U.S. flopped to a 3-0 defeat
against Poland but wound
up advancing with a second-
place group finish when
Park Ji-sung's 70th-minute
goal gave South Korea a 1-0
victory over Portugal


At last year's
Confederations Cup, the
U.S. neededathree-goalwin
Aver Egypt to advance and
for Italy to lose to Brazil by
three goals. Brazil scored
three times in the first half
against the Azzurri, and
Clint Dempsey's 71st-min-
ute goal gave the U.S. a 3-0
win over the Egyptians.
"Last . year's
Confederations Cup was a
nice dress rehearsal and
we were in this situation a
little bit," Bocanegra said.
"We had to win, and last
time we had to get some
help. This time, we just
need to win."
Forward Jozy Altidore
missed the first part of
training Tuesday because
of an upset stomach. "Jozy
just wasn't feeling well,
but.he'll be fine for tomor-
row," Bob Bradley said.
With Robbie Findley sus-
pended after getting yellow
cards against England and
Slovenia, Edson Buddle
could be paired with
Altidore at forward.
Frank De Bleeckere of
Belgium will be the ref-
eree. He worked the 2008
European Championship
semifinal between Spain
and Russia, several
Champions League match-
es and the 2009 Under-20
World Cup final between
Ghana and Brazil.

FOR BETTER ORWORSE


DEAR ABBY


Man is eager for more than

tales from wife's dating past


DEAR ABBY: My hus-
band, "Eric," and .1I are new-
lyweds. Several months ago,
with a little coaxing, I shared
my previous "history" with
him. I used graphic terms
and went into great detail.
Eric found it extremely excit-
ing, and we both benefited
from it.
Recently,. Eric mentioned
how great it would be if I con-
tacted one of my past lovers
to push the envelope of pas-
sion even further. I agreed.
My dinner date with the old
flame was actually quite fun,
with talk of the past. Eric
thrilled at my description of
the "date." His suggestion
that I go out -with my old
beau and "enjoy myself' as I
had when I was single, how-
ever, left me hurt and some-
what uncomfortable.
Eric hinted that a new
"story" would take things
to another level. He's com-
pletely OK with it, not at all
jealous. I said I wasn't sure,
but I'd consider it. What do
you think? - MRS. R. IN
ILLINOIS
DEAR MRS. R.: Some
"envelopes" should remain
sealed. Think long and hard
before embarking on the
path toward which your hus-
band is leading you. Is this re-
ally the kind of marriage you
signed up for? How would
you feel about Eric looking
up old flames and reporting
back to you?
Frankly, I think you're


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearabby.com
being pushed in the wrong
direction. The result could
very well be that you end up
feeling used and degraded.
DEAR -ABBY: I want
to help my son and grand-
children. His current wife
moved out, taking their two
little ones with her. His other
three children from his first
wife still live with him. They
are upset about this and can't
understand why they have
been abandoned by their
stepmom - just as they
were by their birth mother.
The little boy is taking it the
hardest.
How can I help my grand-
children understand that this
isn't their fault? - HEART-
BROKEN GRANDMA IN
TEXAS
DEAR HEARTBRO-
KEN: If you and your son's
second wife are on speaking
terms, ask her to contactyour
grandchildren and explain
that grown-ups sometimes
can no longer live together,
and they need to remain with
their father. She should also
tell them that her leaving has
absolutely nothing to do with
them.


HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Love is on the
rise but you don't have to
spend money to win some-
one's affection. Emotional,
manipulation will come into
play. Greater professional
opportunities will be given
if you push for the position
you want ***
TAUIRUS (April'. 20-
May 20): Be very clear
about what you want and
how you see things unfold-
ing. Leading someone on,
even unintentionally, will
cause problems. A trip or
seminar will help you make
a decision that you've been
unable to make in the past.

GEMINI (May 21-
June 20): Making deci-,
sions based on emotions
will cost you financially.
Love is in the stars. Leave
room late in the day to do
something with your lover
or take part in an event that
caters to singles, if you are
unattached. ***
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): You can make
personal changes as long as
they aren't over-budget. Un-
certainty regarding a fam-
ily member will be difficult
to address. Try listening
for now and you will have
a much better idea how to
handle matters. *****
LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): Travel, learning and


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Word

greater involvement with
friends, relatives and neigh-
bors will be informative.
Gambling or spending
your money foolishly or
being overtly generous to
impress someone; must be
avoided. **
VIRGO (Aug. 23-
Sept. 22): Rethink your
strategy if someone ques-
tions a financial deal you
are' considering. You may
have missed a vital piece of
information. An emotional.
concern can be dealt with if
you act quickly and have a
solution that is fair to,every-
one. ****
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): You'll get the help you
need but don't take advan-
tage of the person offering
you assistance. Be honest
about what has happened.
Don't let a love relation-
.ship jeopardize your job, a
friendship or your emotion-
al well-being. ***
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Getting in touch
with people having similar
interests or concerns will
pay off personally and pro-
fessionally. Your insight
and creativity will attract
an offer from someone in a
position to help you present
your ideas. Don't let a love


relationship stand in your
way. ***
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): An emotional
involvement can evolve into
something much greater if
you spend one-oh-one time
with the person you love.
Don't limit the possibilities
by .keeping your thoughts
and feelings a secret ***
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): Take time
to have a little fun. Don't
neglect the people you are
close to personally and
emotionally or you may be
left out of something that
you might enjoy taking part
in. Push hard to resolve
a pending legal problem.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Someone from
your past may try to force
you into a situation you've
been in before. Stand up
to this person so you don't
repeat the mistake. Love is
in the stars but you must
choose your partner wisely.

PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Focus on your
family and friends and what
will help make your home
more inviting. Money can
be made if you look at the
services or skills you have
to offer. Market what you
can do and you can make
some extra cash. *****

Brightway: Superstore of options in 1 location


Smart protection
and brilliant ser-
vice is the norm
at Brightway
Insurance.
Vance Cox, agent and
owner, started the local
office of the company
March 15, which special-
izes in home and auto
insurance. Business and
life insurance rates are
also available.
"It's exciting to start
something new and watch
it grow," he said. "It's a
true blessing. It's some-
thing I've always wanted
to do.",
Cox grew up in the
insurance business. His
father, Ken, retired as a
State Farm agent this year
after 43 years.
Cox worked with his
father for 12 years and
decided to open his own
insurance company after
his dad's retirement.
"I've always done really
well with it," he said.
Brightway is a franchise
company, and after doing
research Cox "fell in love
with the concept."
"I love the company and
what it stands for and its
philosophies," he said.
There are 60 Florida
offices of Brightway
Insurance and more than
250 associates.
The company is like a
"superstore" of options for

Brightway Insurance owner Vance Cox fills a range of insurance needs. His office is at 742 SE Baya Drive, Suite 102.


insurance coverage, Cox
said.
"We have over 100
companies to choose from
and offer the most diverse
companies," he said.
The company offers
insurance from national
carriers including AIG,
Metlife, Nationwide and
Progressive at "extremely


competitive" prices.
'We have programs that
are comparative, and a rat-
ing system that fits your
needs to the best offer
and lowest rate at the best
price," he said.
The lowest rates and
best values are guaranteed
with so many companies
for customers to choose


from, Cox said.
Aside from Cox and
Jennifer Davis, agent/pro-
ducer, customers have
the support of the more
than 200 service people
at the corporate office in
Jacksonville at their dis-
posal, Cox said.
"If you come to me, you
get me," he said. "I person-


ally talk to you one-on-one,
and you have the service
team."
Cox can be at peace
With himself knowing .he
can give the best prices to
clients, he said.
"It's just what makes
the company stand out for
other agencies," he said.
'They truly care about


every policy."
He wants to present
himself the same way as
his father did to the com-
munity, and advertising
in the Lake City Reporter
helps increase recognition
of the company, Cox said.
"The ads I've done have
gotten the Brightway
name out there," he said.
It's hard to just keep
.telling people by word-of-
mouth about the company,
he said.
All the offices behind
Brightway offer the best
and most competitive rates
out on the market today,
Cox said.
Brightway Insurance
is open from 8:30 p.m. to
5 p.m. Monday through
Friday and by appoint-
ment.
The office is located at
742 SE Baya Drive, Suite
102.
The phone number is
(386) 752-2345, fax is (877)
322-7143 and e-mail is

Cox said he 'will never
settle for not getting his
customers the best rates.
"I want people to know
we offer the best rates," he
said. "We offer many com-
panies that can fit every
person's needs in Lake
City."
