of the belief that "we are
our brother's keeper"
and God holds everyone
accountable for how they
helped and served one
another. .
Ford pursued his
call as a minister after
high school. He served
as the pastor of Salem
Missionary Baptist

for 23 years. He holds a

Now here we have "cur-

gets together and decides the

Is that the story? Now, I have
absolutely no similar plans to this

still one of Almerica's rights, is
this not correct? Common Sense

I say unusual, but weird or

A better

way to

manage risk

help Florida businesses
manage risk at no cost
to the state and other
policyholders, they could
do no better than to approve
a pending measure easing the
way for companies to form their
own insurance subsidiaries to
fmance potential losses.
In the jargon of the industry,
this is called "captive insur-
ance." It's a common com-
mercial feature throughout the
country. Florida law regulates
these. subsidiaries, but it's fallen
behind the 35 other states that
have recently adopted captive-
friendly legislation.
At a time when windstorni
and property insurance rates
are once again going through
Sthe roof (see above), captive
insurance would reduce the .
high cost of insurance for
large corporations and associa-
tions. That's the fundamental
attraction. It offers companies
a better way to manage risk,
improves control over preini-
ums- and claims, and provides
direct access to the reinsur-
ance market by cutting out the
middle man.
For Gov. Rick Scott, who
came to office promising to
improve the state's business.
climate, this should be a no-
brainer. In addition, updating
the laws would help create jobs
in two ways:
First, the new subsidiaries
would require accountants,
actuaries, lawyers and others to
run them.
Secoiid, billk in thie
Legislature require the new
insurance subsidiaries to
hold their annual meetings in
Florida, generating additional
revenue in the hospitality indus-
try. The legislation's backers,
including the Beacon Council,
Miami-Dade County's economic
development partnership, say
the captive insurance industry
generated $680 million for
South Carolina in 2009.
Insurance is a major head- -
ache for Florida's businesses.
It's a disincentive to doing
business here. Updating cap-

But being an ardent pessi-

Share not my main concer-n,
although I remain pessimistic
about them. It seems to me,-,
:...e that the gre~atpr wor~ryj is that
these roiay be symptomatic of
historical national declinee.
America has always been a
can-do country. Kick out the
Redcoats? Sure! Expand west-
:ward? Of course! E~nd slavery?
We can do it! Restore hope to
the downtrodden with a New
Deal? Yes! Win World War ~I?
No problem! Put a man on the
moon? Of course we can!
I could go on but I am run-
ning out of question marks
and exclamation points. In
turn, America has run out of
the can-do attitude. We have
become can't-doers. No-can-do
permeates our politics.
Can we have a space pro-
gram that is more than the
modern equivalent of a pop

Can we have universal

Can we ever get out of the
wars in Iraq and Af~ghanistan,
those constant drains on the
national treasury? We can't
seem to do it.
SCan we even make meaning-
ful cuts in the defense budget?
No we can't. That sacred cow
wears full-body armor.
Can we repair all the
nation's roads and bridges that
were built in the can-do era
and arb now crumbling? No
way we can.
Can we wean ourselves from
Fossil fuels that make us hos-
tage to people who don't share
our values? No can do. Various
climate-change-denying fossils
just want to make the procur-
ers drill more in this country
for our energy drug of choice.
And a year after the Gulf oil
spill, can we be assured that
nothing like it is likely to hap-
pen again? We cannot.
Can we agree that the
Environmental Protection
Agency should be able to regu-
late pollution? Sorry, we can't
do it.

keeping Atlantis for dis-

Keeping Atlantis takes
away some of the sting of
shutting down the program
and laying .off so much
of the workforce, with-
out a clear path forward,
Leinbach said.
Obama canceled the
back-to-the-moon pro-
gram proposed by former
President George W. Bush
and put NASA on a path
toward asteroids and Mars,
while encouraging private
companies to take over the
Earth-to-orbit business.
Space entrepreneurs pre-
dict it will take three years
to launch a commercial
spacecraft, with astronauts
on board, to the space sta-

could be a full decade.

family," Leinbach said of
the shuttle workforce. "It's
tough to deal with it. But
we're moving on and we're
going to fly these last two
missions safe and bring the
crews home, and then that
will be it."

"For many people this is
a moral issue, this is a life
and death issue," said Rep.
Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala.
Most Democrats, though,
argued the legislation consti-
tutes an assault on women's
Rep. Scott Randolph, D-
Orlando, said it's "a back-
door attempt to send women
to the back alley" by prevent-
ing them from being able to
get safe abortions.
The Legislature passed
an ultrasound bil last year,
but it was vetoed by then-
Goj. Charlie Crist.
This year's bill (HIB 1127)
differs by allowing women
opt out of both viewing or
listening to a description
of the ultrasound although
they'd still be required to
get the procedure. Women
also couldte ubdptheulltral

Finally, there's a compre-
hensive abortion regulation
bill that would expand the
category of prohibited abor-
tions beyond the third tri-
mester to include cases in
which the fetus is deemed
viable by a doctor. Other pro-
visions would require doc-
tors who provide abortions
to undergo ethics training
and require that abortion
clinics be owned by doctors.
Together they represent
the most significant effort
to curtail abortion rights

WASHINGTON Every other
week, 7-year-old twins Addison
and Cassidy Hempel have an
experimental medicine injected
into their spines in hopes of bat-
tling a rare, fatal disease.
And it's their mom who made
that possible.
From her home in Reno, Nev.,
Chris Hempel persuaded scien-
tists to shar-e their research and
managed to get the government to
sign off on her daughters' unusu-
al experiment. Hempel says get-
ting help to fight a rare disease
shouldn't be so hard.
But it's a huge challenge to gen-
erate drug company interest in the
expensive testing of medicines for
diseases so rare like her girls'

Researchers don't

it may reflect differences
in beliefs about miracles,
distrust of doctors among
minorities, and a misun-

About 80 percent of

"It is interesting just
how far minority patients,
particularly black patients,
are willing to go to extend
their life," said Ellen
McCarthy, a Harvard
University researcher
who has studied racial
disparities in cancer care
but was not involved in
the new study.
The findings, pub-
lished online Tuesday by
the journal Cancer, were
based on telephone sur-

with lung and colon can-
cer. About 17 percent of
the colon cancer patients

TOey O'Neal
named head
C'Oach at RMS.
After playing a support-
ing role for ~16-seasons, Joey
O'Neal has been named
head coach of a football
O'Neal is the new head
coach at Richardson Middle
School, where he is head
custodian. He has spent
23 years in the Columbia
.County School System.
O'Neal was the head base-
ball coach for the Wolves
this season and has headed
up junior varsity basketball
at Columbia High, but foot-
ball has different demands.
"I think I can handle it
very well," O'Neal said.
"I am used to being with
crowds of people from the
varsity. I think I can adjulst
to being the head man."
O'Neal was a two-way
starter in football at Baker
County High, where he'
graduated in 1975. He began
coaching in 1995 at CHS
when his high school coach
recruited him. Since then,
he has coached 13 years on*
JV and varsity at Columbia,
two years at Baker County.
and ~he spent last year at
Fort White High.
- "I played for Danny
Green and, when he first
came to Lake City, he and
Coach (Donnie) Harrison
talked me into it," O'Neal
said. "It is a new experience
for me and a lot of work. I
understand now what the
head coach goes through.
It is a lot of responsibility."

"I'm am trying to get
the program back where
it is supposed to be, and
to bring that Commanders

Cup (annual trophy 'pre-
sented to Richardson/Lake
City Middle Schog Jwinner)
back where it needds to be,"
O'Neal said. n^
Columbia head coach
Brian Allen was a senior in
the 1995 season, and he and
O'Neal' are back working
together. .
."Brian is giving me some
basic stuff to use, so when
the players get there they

will know what's going on,"
O'Nealsaid. "~e are doing
conditioning and he has
given me exercises he uses.
I have narrowed them down
for our players. I am glad to
be working with Brian. It is
great for the kids to be on
the same page he is on. He
has been very cooperative
with me." .
O'Neal's philosophy is
old school on the field and

in the classroom. ,
"It isah Abst -rh getting;
back to the fundamentalss"
O'Neal said. "We need to go
back to'that- smash-mouth
football. I expect them to
do their work first and get
an education. They must do
good in class and I stress
that every day. Without
education, you won't make
it in football. You won't have
the grades to do it."

York K~nicks are bringing
Chauncey Billups back for
next season,
The Knicks announced
Wednesday that they are
keeping ~the veteran point
guard, deciding his leader-
ship outweighs the savings
they would have earned by
waiving him this week.
The Knicks would have
been obligated to pay Billups
only $3.7 million if they cut
him within ~five days after
the season. Instead, he will
be on the' books for $14.2
million next season, when
he will run a team in its
fist full season with Amare
Stoudemire and Carmelo
Anthony together. '
"Chauncey, Amare and
Carmelo are a great nucl"
us, as we continue to look to
improve our team going into
the offseason," team rlresi-
dent Donnie Walsh said in
a statement. "Chauncey is
an extremely talented and
experienced point guard
- we are very happy to
have him back."
The Knicks acquired
Billups along with Anthony
from Denver in February.
He averaged 17.5 points
with the Knicks but battled
a pair of injuries, missing
six games yvith a bruised
left quadriceps in March,
then straining a tendon
in his left knee during
Game 1 of the playoffs and
missing the final three
games of New York's loss
to Boston.

contest Monday during the FCAT Field Day event held at the school's football field. Students were given a day of fun, snacks
and good times in reward for the school's B grade for the FCAT, a grade it received in 2010.

Melissa Jacobson, 16, powers through to make a score on
the Bungee Run Monday.

CHS student Hailey Carter, 17, scoops up the last bit of her
creme pie in a pie-eating contest. 'This was my first time,'
said Carter, who took first place. 'All I kept thinking was that
I hope I would win. If I had to do it again, I would use nose.

that position by repeatedly
imposing rules and restric-
tions that violate the anti-
trust laws," ~the attorneys
wrote. "Any alleged pre-
dicament is of their own
The solution, the players
argued, is to simply imple-
ment a system that does
not violate antitrust laws.
"There is no reason why
the NFL defendants cannot
devise a lawful player sys-
tem, and their complaints
about potential antitrust
scrutiny are not well-found-
ed where such scrutiny is a
reality of doing business,"
they wrote.
If Nelson grants the
league's request, players
want thie NFL to post a
$1 billion bond, roughly
25 percent of player com-
pensation last year. An
NFL attorney said the
bond "raises significant
issues" the league hasn't
yet addressed and received
permission from Nelson to
file a brief written response
later Wednesday.
If Nelson denies the
league's expedited motion
for a stay, the owners will
ask the 8th U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals in St. Louis
for the same thing. They're
also asking the appeals
court, viewed as a more

friendly venue to the league
than the federal c~iurts in
Minnesota, to overturn
Nelson's decision.
The NFL draft starts
Thursday night, but it will
be far from normal. The
lockout has prevented
teams from adding free
agents and adjusting their
rosters, so their strategy
this year is more compli-
cated, not knowing exactly
when they'll have a chance
to sign or trade for veterans
to stock various positions.
The players argued that
the absence of fr-ee agen-
cy this offseason has hurt
them greatly.
"Players should be mar-
keting their services to find
the right team in which they
have the best chance to
make a roster, be a starter
or otherwise advance their
careers," attorneys for the
players wrote. "This pro-
cess requires an extended
period of time to play out in
a fair manner for all players,
and any elimination or com-
pression of this free agency
period will lead to a set of
scrambled outcomes and
harms to different players
that cannot be undone."
Repeatedly in
Wednesday's filing, the
players took an argument
the league has made and

turned it into their own.
expression of concern that
the longer the uncertainty
around the 2011 season
continues, the worse it is
for everyone involved. The
players said teams won't be
harmed if the judge denies
the motion for a stay, mean-
ing the NFL would be back
in business.
"This is the only way to
preserve the 2011 season
announced by the NFL,
given the need to sign free
agents, to complete the NFL
draft and sign drafted play-
ers, to plan and to hold train-
ing camp, and to plan for the
season itself," the players
wrote. "Denying a stay will
enable the NFL defendants
to go back to operating
their multibillion-dollar busi-
ness and making enormous
amounts of money, as they
did previously."
Matthew Cantor, an
antitrust specialist with
Constantine Cannon in
New York, said he sees the
NFI's dilemma as legiti-
'I think they are between
a rock and a hard place,
and that's one of the prob-
lems with allowing this
antitrust suit to continue,
rather than collectively bar-
gaining," he said.

Associated Press .

players -urged a federal
* judge Wednesday to deny
the league's request to
essentially restore the
lockout, saying their
careers were at stake.
Commissioner Roger
Goodell, meanwhile, said
owners were preparing for
every contingency.
SU.S. District Judge Susan
Richard Nelson is weighing
a request from the owners
for a stay, which means the
injunction she issued to stop
the lockout would be frozen
during the appeals process.
The waiting game was on.
"You have to react to
the judgment and make
sure it's done in an order-
ly process," Goodell said
Wednesday during a pre-
draft event in New York.
The players dismissed
the NFI's argument that it
risks either violating anti-
trust laws by coming up
with new league rules with-
out a collective bargaining
system in place or harming
the league's competitive
balance by a potential -free
agency free-for-all.
"If the NFL defendants
are faced with a dilemma,
they put themselves in

for a fr-anchise quarterback.
It comes after the Panthers
slogged through a 2-14 sea-
son in which they scored a
franchise-low 19S points.
Jimmy Clausen, who
replaced an ineffective and
later injured Matt Moore
in 2010, didn't throw a
touchdown pass to a wide
receiver in losing nine of 10
starts and finishing with the
NFI's lowest passer rating.
"We have to find a quar-
terback who is going to
lead this team, whether
that quarterback is on this
roster, through free agency
or a trade or in the draft,"
new coach Ron Rivera said.
"W~e have to make sure it's
a sound pick and be rea-
sonable with the amount of
time we expect (in terms
of) the impact."
That last part is what
makes Newton such a risk.
He's played one season
of major college football,
and while he went 14-0,
accounted for 50 touch-
downs, won the Heisman
Trophy and led the Tigers
to the natiorial champion-

Associated Press

- It's no accident that's
it's been 16 years since the
Carolina Panthers took a
quarterback in the first
round of the draft. They've
been known for much of
their existence as a run-first
team with the philosophy
that the QB need only to be
a game manager.
That thinking has
changed dramatically, and
could lead the Panthers
to make the biggest draft
gamble in franchise history
Thursday night by. taking
Auburn quarterback Cam
Newton with the No. 1 over-
all pick.
"Some of the rule chang-
es that benefit the offense
have made the passing game
even more critical," general
manager Marty Hurney
said. "I think that position
has always been the most
important position. But I
think the importance of that
position has increased even
more in recent years."
Hurney has remained
mum on what he'll do
with the top choice, but he
hasn't been shy in promot-
ing Newton or their new-
found theory of the need

DEAR ABBY: My wife
and I shop in an upscale shoe
store. On the past two visits
there, a middle-aged sales-
man kissed my wife's hand
when we left. I was surprised
but not offended, considering
it to be nothing more than an
old-fashioned expression of
courtesy. The man is knowl-
edgeable, helpful and honest
My wife, however, disagrees.
She says his gesture- is for-
ward and inappropriate and
that I should resent it. Who's
right? T.R. IN HOUSTON
DEAR T.R.: You are. The
kiss-on-the-hand routine may
be part of the man's sales
technique. If he has done it
before and your wife had no
objection, then it's not sur-
priSing he did it a second
time. What would she like
you to do challenge him to
a duel? If she felt the gesture
was inappropriate, then she
shouldn't have offered her
hand to him a second time.
DEAR ABBY: I hope you
will share 'the following tips
for dealing with orphaned or
injured wildlife. Once people
understand how to handle
an encounter with an injured
animal they will make safe
decisions and possibly have a
positive impact on nature:
1. The animal may NOT
be orphaned! Deer leave their
babies hidderi in clumps of
bushes or tall grass while
they search for-food. A baby
bird that has fallen ~from the
nest can be gently picked up

Abi ail Van Buren
and returned.
2. If you find an orphaned
or injured animal, be very
cautious. Frightened animals
and animals in pain will bite.
Opossums, raccoons and
other mammals can carry ra-
3. Do not bring the ani-
mal inside to nurse it back to
health and keep, as a pet. It
will probably need the care of
a veterinarian, and it's legal
in most states to keep a na.
tive species without a license.
Contact a wildlife rehabilita-
tion center. Your local park
service c~an point you to the
nearest rehab center
4. After any contact with
an injured/orphaned animal,
wash your hands and change
your clothing as soon as pos_
sible. You don't know what
germs the animal may be car-
5. Teach children about
local wildlife. If they find an
animal that is sick or injured,
make sure they know they
should tell an adult right
6. You CAN make a dif.
ference. Severely injured


self-improvement projects.

22-Dec. 21): Don't listen

ning will lead to some per~-
sonal decisions. At

sion with a partner can help'
to even out responsibilities'

TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): You may be
tempted to impress some-
one by spending more than
you should. It will put you
in a compromising position
and make you look frivo-
lous. Don't reveal anything
about finances or a legal
concern. Offer your time,
not your money. ****
GEMINI (May 21-
June 20): Keep an eye on
anyone you deem untrust-
worthy. Don't let your per-
