Predicting 2011 hurricane

season could be difficult

Associated Press

The tough task of guess-
ing what hurricane sea-
son will look like could
be even more difficult this
year for forecasters, who
won't be able to rely on
the relatively predictable
forces known as El Nino
and La Nina.
So far, the National
Hurricane Center in
Miami is predicting that
the season that begins on
Wednesday will be bus-
ier than normal, with as
many as 18 named tropi-
cal storms, three to six of
them major hurricanes.
El Nino and La Nina
- warming and cooling
trends in the ocean that
can either rev up hurri-
canes or suppress them -

are expected to be essen-
tially neutral, complicating
any predictions. The last
time temperatures were
neutral was 2005, when
hurricanes Katrina and
Rita hammered the Gulf
Coast with lethal results.
"With a strong La
Nina or El Nino year, the
forecast is much easier,"
said Dan Kottlowski,
senior meteorologist at "Since
we don't have a strong
signal toward El Nino or
La Nina, there's somewhat
more uncertainty in trying
to determine how strong
this season will be."
The La Nina effect is a
cooling of Pacific Ocean
waters near the equator.
It decreases wind shear
in the Atlantic and can
give storms extra giddyap
as they form. It has been

linked to above-average
hurricane seasons in the
Atlantic. But it appears to
be weakening.
The opposite phenom-
enon, El Nino, warms
Pacific waters, increases
wind shear and can blow
storms apart. But El Nino
isn't happening this sea-
La Nina helped make
last year the third-most
active hurricane season
on record, said meteorol-
ogist Jeff Masters, who
writes a popular weather
blog. Last year, there
were 19 named storms,
12 of which became hur-
ricanes, including Earl,
which sideswiped North
Carolina, just before
Labor Day weekend and
wds the first hurricane
to threaten New England
since 1991.

4 injured'in Monday wreck


Four Plant City resi-
dents were injured in
a Memorial Day crash
when their vehicle's rear
tire had a blowout, the
vehicle overturned and
they were tossed from
the vehicle. Reports said
none of the passengers
were wearing their seat-
Jason Norris, 33, the
driver, suffered criti-
cal injuries in the crash,
while Ty Norris, 13, also
suffered critical injuries,
Walker Norris, 7, suffered
minor injuries and Hope

Norris, 14, suffered seri-
ous injuries in the single-
vehicle crash.
The wreck occurred
around 2:20 p.m. Monday
on Interstate 75 at the 434
milemarker in Columbia
According to Florida
Highway Patrol reports,
Jason Norris was driving
a 2002 Chevrolet Blazer
on the roadway traveling
southbound with the oth-
ers traveling as his passen-
gers, in the center lane.
The vehicle's left rear
tire's tread separated, and
the tire blew out Norris
lost control of the vehicle
and it swerved hard to the

left as it spun clockwise
crossing the roadway's
left lane and overturning
twice, ejecting the driver
and two passengers into
the median. The truck
then struck the guardrail
and came to rest.
Jason Norris, Ty Norris
and Hope Norris were
taken to Shands at the
University of Florida for
treatment of their injuries,
while Walker Norris was
taken to the Lake City
Medical Center.
,Charges in connec-
tion with the wreck are

robbery and shooting.
Deputies deter-
mined that the suspect
approached a group of
people standing near a
car and showed them a'

that the victim give him

"The suspect then fled

Besides the one victim,
there were no other inju-
ries sustained to anyone
Columbia County
Sheriff's Office Deputy
Todd Green responded to
the scene and began to
interview witnesses and
was able to develop a sus-
pect based on eye witness
Seifert'said Green also
spoke to the shooting vic-
tim, who was being treat-
ed at Shands LakeShore
Regional Hospital, and the
victim positively identified
the suspect as Tisdale.
Around 11 p.m.. Tisdale
wentto the Lake City Police
Department requesting to
speak with deputies about
the shooting, reports said.
'Tisdale stated that he
was falsely accused of the
shooting and was receiv-
ing threats," Seifert said.

"Green placed Tisdale
under arrest for the rob-
bery and shooting based
on evidence that he col-
lected during' the course
of the investigation.
Additional arrests are
pending as the investiga-
tion moves forward."
The victim was treated
at Shands LakeShore
Regional Hospital and is

expected to recover from
his injuries, reports said.
Seifert said authorities
have not yet recovered
the handgun used in the
"Detectives ,are still
actively working this

if any accomplices were
involved in the robbery,"

Tuesday morning
Morgan hosted a meeting
where he discussed plans
with local constitutional offi-

where he discussed prepa-
ration plans with Columbia
County Department heads.
Tuesday afternoon, Morgan
hosted another meeting
at the EOC where he dis-
cussed hurricane prepara-
tion plans with emergency
support functions such
as local law enforcement,
power companies, the
United Way, the Columbia

'This was our annual pre-
hurricane meeting," Morgan
said following the 1:30 p.m.
meeting. "We do this every
year. The statistics are nice
to look at, but it only takes

one hurricane to ruin your
day. We have these meet-
ings to make sure our part,

agencies are prepared in the
event that something does

During the afternoon
meeting, 'officials also

"In 2004 that hotline took
over 25,000 calls that were

Who will

oversee the


oversight is one of
Congress' most
important func-
tions. When there
is a major blunder
it can often be traced to a lack
of congressional oversight. At
its most basic level, oversight
insures that federal agencies
are doing their jobs efficiently
and well.
However there is such a
thing as too much oversight
where the agency, instead
of doing its job, is tied up
responding to congressional
inquiries. The Associated Press
has found an especially dis-
turbing example in Congress'
oversight of the sprawling
Department of Homeland
The Associated Press says
that DHS answers to 108 con-
gressional committees, sub-
committees and caucuses.
Thus, according to the
AP, "Officials and staff
spent about 66 work years
responding to questions form
Congress in 2009 alone. That
same year, Homeland Security
officials say they answered
11,680 letters, gave 2,058
briefings and sent 232 wit-
nesses to 166 hearings. All
this at a cost to taxpayers of
about $10 million."
Since DHS has asked for
$57 billion in total funding
for this next fiscal year, $10
million is not a great deal of
money to insure that those
funds are well spent. The
bigger problem is the drain
on the time of top agency
officials. DHS Secretary Janet
Napolitano has complained
that the department's officials
and staff were spending more.
time responding to congres-
sional requests than carrying
out their responsibilities.
Unfortunately, there is a
near-insuperable obstacle to
an orderly and effective over-
sight Congress itself.
The committees and sub-
committees, and particularly
their chairmen and staffs,
are enormously protective of
their turf and jealous of their
prerogatives. No one will cede
authority until someone else
does and no one else will. It
really is classic Washington.

Market incentives in college

classroom work both ways

students often
have to repeat
And would
unshackling the market's'
invisible hand in the college
.classroom result in more suc-
I suspect that the faculty at
every college and university
harbors a few stern, spiteful old
shellbacks who imagine that
their highest calling is to put
as many students as possible in
their places each semester by
flunking them.
Other professors, consumed
in their own research at highfa-
lti universities, may be mere-
ly.~ndifferent to their students'
But allow me to assert, based
on no more evidence than the
experience of close to 30 years
of teaching in colleges and uni-
versities, that the great majority
of postsecondary educators
are dedicated to their students'
success. When students fail, we
feel a bitter pang of failure our-
selves. We would pass them all,
if only we could find a respon-
sible way to do it
Unfortunately, however,
students fail college classes
for a wide array of reasons,
many of which have'little to do
with their native ability. Some
students, with barely enough
financial resources to make
ends meet and go to college at
the same time, work too much.
Others have overwhelming
family duties; as our culture
increasingly recognizes the
need for lifelong learning, more
students come to us bearing
the obligations that go along
with having families.
Other students are plenty
smart but were insufficiently
challenged during high school
and haven't yet developed the

academic maturity required to
function well in college. Some
students drink too much or use
too many drugs..
And let's face it Some stu-
dents have more or less maxed
out their academic skills and
brainpower by the time they
make it through high school. I
wouldn't necessarily argue that
these, students.shouldn't go to,
college. Not all the valuable
learning that takes place in col-
lege reflects itself in a degree.
But as we push to educate a
larger and larger proportion of
our citizenry, some students
are going to bump up against
their academic upper limits.
So students may fail college
courses, in significant numbers,
for a lot of complicated reasons.
Now the second question:
Would unleashing market forc-
es improve success rates?
The question isn't theoreti-
cal. Recently, the Chronicle of
Higher Education reported on
the efforts of a conservative
think tank called the Texas
Public Policy Foundation,
which, in its wisdom, has come
up with "Seven Breakthrough,
Solutions" that it believes
will transform higher educa-
tion in Texas and around the
nation, beginning with the
Foundation's present focus,
Texas A&M University.
The extent of the
Foundation's influence is
surprising until you realize
that Texas Gov. Rick Perry,

an A&M alumnus, supports
the "Seven Breakthrough
Solutions." Furthermore, he
appoints the A&M regents,
who generally are contributors
to his political campaigns, and
at least one of the regents is on
the Foundation's board, as well.
In short, these Texas mov-
ers and shakers all know each
other and they speak a com-
mon language: business and
Their faith in this language
is expressed in the "Seven
Breakthrough Solutions,"
which are more about efficien-
cy and productivity than educa-
tion. Students are unashamedly
referred to as "customers,"
and customer satisfaction is a
primary method for evaluating
professors' teaching effective-
ness. Other markers of effi-
ciency include a cost/benefit
analysis of every professor
based on salary, grant money
obtained, number of students
taught and so on.
The goal, stated or unstated,
is to think of colleges as busi-
nesses and to use market forc-
es to make them break even,
without taxpayer support, or
even turn a profit.
But too much emphasis on
productivity sometimes
the student is called a "prod-
uct," as well sets in play
another market force, one that
privileges sheer output over
quality and creates a cash'
incentive to advance students.
When students, in response
to the market's invisible hand,
begin to pass just to keep
the cash flowing, the goal of
superior public higher educa-
tion will have been thoroughly

Data roaming rules are essential

which provides
wireless broadband
access across the
country, has sued
to block a federal rule requiring
wireless broadband providers to
offer data roaming on commer-
cially reasonable terms. Verizon
is entitled to its day in court, but
this suit must not prevail.
With text messages, e-mail
and other forms of data overtak-
ing voice as the main form of
wireless communication, the rule
issued in April will preserve com-
petition in a vital communications
There are more than 100
wireless providers around the
country, mostly tiny carriers with
a network limited to a small area.
They depend on roaming agree-
ments to stitch together a bigger
footprint, which is essential to
compete successfully. If Verizon

were to prevail -AT&T has, so
far, not joined the lawsuit but has
criticized the rule the two domi-
nant players could refuse to deal.
The Federal Communications
Commission says AT&T signed
its first 3G roaming agreement
in March, six years after estab-
lishing the 3G network. In April
2010, Verizon had only three
roaming agreements, according
to the EC.C. But it hurried up
after the EC.C. started the rule-
making process a year ago. Now
it has 40, including 10 on its most
advanced 4G network. In a letter
to the EC.C. last year, a coalition
of wireless carriers complained
that the big broadband carriers
often refused to negotiate deals,
or demanded rates of 30 cents
or even $1 per megabyte, which
would make watching a movie or
downloading a song prohibitively
The EC.C. requires wireless

carriers to offer voice roaming at
reasonable rates, but data provid-
ers are not classified as common
. carriers, which must offer their .
services to everyone on standard
terms. Verizon argues that the
EC.C. thus does not have the
authority to impose standardized
roaming rules on data.
The argument is weak. The
EC.C. doesn't impose a standard
pricing structure. It expects
firms to negotiate their own deals
and provides an arbitration pro-
cedure in case they cannot reach
an agreement
The wireless market has been
growing increasingly concen-
trated over the last decade. If
cleared by antitrust regulators,
AT&T plans to buy the No. 4
carrier, T-Mobile. Against this
backdrop, data roaming rules are

Sit back

and enjoy

the sunset:

There's an art to watch-
ing a sunset. Or maybe
its just age. Either way,
I'm good at it
My husband is good
at it, too. It was the first redeem-
ing quality I saw in him. Our initial ;
meeting was not what you'd call
love at first sight -
Years ago, I was a reporter in a
newsroom where he'd just been ,,
hired as an editor. His first day on [
the job, he was assigned to edit my i
column. I don't recall what the col-
umn was about, but I rather liked it-,]
So I gave it to him, then sat at my,
desk awaiting his response. I waited,.
a long time. Finally, I had to ask ii
"My column? Is it OK?"
"Oh," he said, glancing up from
some stupid news story he was
editing. "Sure, it's fine."
Fine? Time passes. Wounds
heal. Yeah, right Weeks later, I
was on deadline finishing a story,
when suddenly he announced,
"Everybody outside for sunset!"
We looked up, blinking like coal
miners freed from the black abyss
of our computers. As the other
sheep trotted out to the patio, I put
my head down to work. He called, (
"You, too, Randall."
Fine! o
I don't recall that sunset, but I D
do recall I liked it I liked the fact
that he had noticed it, and that he
wanted us to notice it, too.
What Isawin him thatday was i
a thing my grandmother called
"potential," but it would be years C
before I saw it clearly. i
For the record, I have never seen
a sunset I didn't like.
I grew up in the Blue Ridge
Mountains, where sunsets like to
linger, pouring over one old peak,
then the next
Imagine my surprise at 19, when
I left Carolina, to find that the sun
also sets in California. And the sim-
ple act of watching it could make
me feel at home.
Imagine my surprise again after
years as a widow, to marry my
former editor, move to Las Vegas
and find that the sun also sets in the
desert And the simple act of watch-
ing it still makes me feel at home.
Last week, for the first time in too
long, we took a vacation, my hus-
band and I, and went to the Florida
Keys. We sat on a beach, read a
stack of books, got bitten by squad-
rons of mosquitoes and watched
eight perfect sunsets.
One evening we shared the dock
with some teenagers who sat laugh- ,
ing, punching at each other, until
the sun sank below the horizon.
Then they left '
We rolled our eyes. Rookies. 11
They would miss the best part
After a lifetime of watching sun-
sets, here is what I know:
First, the sun isn't picky. It sets
everywhere mountains, oceans,
desert, even-in memory. Where
doesn't matter. What counts is who
you are and the company you keep.
Second, to see it truly, you have
to be still; breathe it in, let it fill up
every empty place inside you. It's
a mini-vacation free every day with
one destination: Home.
Finally, never say it's over until
it's over. Sunsets are like people: 5
They have potential. Give them
time to show you their true colors.
Sometimes life likes to save the
best for last
We're back home once again,
scratching our mosquito bites and
doing piles of laundry. He's grilling
pork ribs. I'm writing a column. So
much for vacation.
But there are fresh peonies on
the table and 10 fuzzy quail chicks
parading across the patio. And my
former editor is yelling at me to
come watch the sunset
All I can say is, "Fine."

May V. Davis
May V. Davis, 83, passed.away
in her home in Orange Park,
Florida on Thursday, May 26,
2011. Her two daughters were
with her as she gently passed
into God's loving hands. May
was born on July 17, 1927 in
Capitol Heights, Maryland: to
John and Viola Rueth. She grad-
uated from Maryland Park High
School in Seat Pleasant, MD and
went to work for the Washington
Star in the classified department
where she met Don, who in 3
short months would become her
husband of 61 years. May left
her job at The Star to become
a homemaker in every sense of
the word.. May and Don lived
in Silver Spring, Maryland un-
til they moved their brood of 3.
children to the up and coming
town of Miami, Florida in 1958.
Child #4 soon arrived; and, thus
began their new life with a fledg-
ling new business and 4 small
children and one "Sparky" in
the new and prosperous land of
opportunity. Home is where the
heart is and Mom became the
ultimate "soccer Mom", attend-
ing baseball and football games,
talent shows and music recitals.
Her home was a revolving door
for relatives on vacation, holiday
events, birthdays, special occa-
sions and a welcome respite for,
friends and neighbors and their
kids. Many of her children's
friends called May's home their
second home. Once the chil-
dren had grown, May retired
with Don and their two dogs to
their "little slice of heaven", in
Branford, Florida, where they
lived until moving to'Lake City
and then on to Orange Park in
2006. Don passed away in 2007,
and May continued her life with
her constant companion, Missy,
everyone's favorite black lab.
May's interests included read-
ing, crotsword puzzles, and
handicrafts like crocheting and
latchhooking. Her passion

was bowling, and her last bowl-
ing team, "The Sexy Seniors",
was based in Lake City, a fear-
some group of aggressive senior
bowlers made up of May, Don,
May's brother, Jesse, and his
wife Ann, their very best friends
of 65 yeArs' May is preceded in
death by her husband, Donald A.
Davis and her son, Michael A.
Davis. She is survived by her
3 children, Donna Davis, Janet
Jackson and her husband, Tom;
and Donny Davis and his wife,
Dawn; 16 grandchildren and
step-grandchildren; and their
children, and Missy; as well as
her brother, Jesse Rueth and his
wife, Ann, and their children. A
memorial service will be held
for May at St. Giles Presbyterian
Church at 116 Foxridge Road

and later at Clarksdale, MS.
After the war, Mrs. Hill and her
husband lived in Lake City for
a year until he was recalled to

stationed at Robins AFB in War-
ner Robins, GA, Denison, TX,
and Manston Royal Air Force
Base in County Kent, England.'
When they returned to the U.S.
from England, they were again
stationed at Robins AFB until
her husband retired from the Air

band then moved back to Lake
City, where they made their
home until his death in 1996. In.
2003, she relocated to Atlanta,
GA and later to Sylvania, GA
to live with her son and daugh-
ter-in-law. Mrs. Hill was an ac-
tive member of the First Baptist

Air Show draws local crowd
Staff reports

It wasn't new technology that dreW a
crowd of Lake City residents to the St.
Augustine Air Show last weekend.
Just the opposite.
Planes that were instrumental in,
America's role in World War II, like
the F4U Corsair (photo above), were
crowd-pleasers. Corsairs were flown by
U.S. Marine and U.S. Navy pilots, and it
was the first U.S. single-engine fighter
to go faster than 400 mph. During WWII
it achieved an 11-1 kill ratio against
enemy aircraft.
Thepilotofthefeatured F4UCorsair is
Dan McCue, seen in the cockpit waving
to the veterans as he passes (above).
After parking his airplane, McCue (left

as many veterans as possible.

Endeavour heads back

AP Aerospace Writer
- Their work in orbit
complete, Endeavour's
six astronauts on Tuesday
checked the systems they
need to bring NASA's sec-
ond-to-last space shuttle
flight to a close.
Commander Mark Kelly
and his crew aimed for a
landing in the pre-dawn
hours of Wednesday.
"Endeavour's performed
really, really well for us
over these 16 days, as it
has since its first flight,"
Kelly said.
"When we land in Florida
tomorrow, it's going to roll
into the hangar and get
prepared for the next step,
the next phase' of its life,
which is in a museum. I
imagine millions of people,
hopefully millions of peo-
ple a year will get to enjoy
getting up close to the
space shuttle ... but it is
a bittersweet moment, it's
been a great spacecraft."
Endeavour left the
International, Space
Station over the week-
end. The astronauts put
the finishing touches on
the orbiting lab, install-
ing a $2 billion cosmic
ray detector, an extension
beam and a, platform full
of spare parts enough
to keep the station oper-
ating in the shuttle-less'
decade ahead.
Atlantis will make
the final flight ever by a
space shuttle in just five
weeks to end the 30-year
program. It will 'head to
the launch pad Tuesday

Woods' bid to catch

Nicklaus depends

on wounded knee

Associated Press
e doesn't want
Tiger Woods
to break his
record of 18
But Jack Nicklaus wants
him to be healthy enough
to try.
Nicklaus told him as
much last Friday when
Woods called to say that
for the second time in four
years, he wouldn't be able
to play in the Memorial
Tournament because of an
injury to his left leg.
Woods misseddin 2008
while recovering from
minor surgery to clean
out cartilage damage in
his left knee. This time
the culprit is a
combination of a minor
knee sprain and his
Achilles, which was bad
enough to cause him .
to leave The Players
Championship after only
nine holes.
Woods hopes to play the
U.S. Open. Trying to win
majors starts with playing
in them.
"I don't know the extent
of his injuries," Nicklaus
said Tuesday. "I told Tiger
when I was on the phone'
with him which is the
same thing I've said to him
a thousand times Tiger,
nobody ever wants their
records to be broken ...
but I certainly don't want
you not to be healthy and
not have the opportunity
to play to break records.
I want you to get yourself
healthy, do what you have
to do to go play, get your
golf game back in shape,
and I wish you well.'
"I would say that to
any athlete and anybody,
because I think.that's the
way it should be,"
Nicklaus said. "But what
his situation is, I don't
know any more than what
I read."
It wasn't long ago when
Woods appeared to be

Nicklaus, but to break the

Thanksgiving night and
revelations of serial
adultery, which led to
divorce. He hired a new
swing coach. He is in the
middle of a slump that
once seemed
unfathomable. He has
fallen out of the top 10 in
the world ranking for the
first time in 14 years.
And now there's another
injury that makes Woods
seem a lot older than 35.
For all that has gone,
wrong with Woods during
the last 18 months, his
health might be the most
troubling at least as
it relates to his golf, and
especially in context with
Nicklaus won 70 times in
19 years on the PGA Tour
before the first sign of an
injury. ,
"Physically, I was pretty
darned good," he said.
Two weeks after
he won the 1980 PGA
Championship at Oak Hill
for his 17th major, he had
to withdraw from the final
round of. the World Series
of Golf at Firestone with a
bad back. About two years

later, his back flared up
again at the 1983 Masters
and he had to withdraw '
early in the second round.
The first time he had
surgery was in 1984, when
he hurt his left knee while
playing tennis.
"I went and had it
operated on and I won the
Skins Game 17 days later,"
Nicklaus said. "So
obviously, it wasn't a very
major operation."
Woods already has had
four surgeries on his left
"I'm sure down the road
it may be more difficult,"
he said. "But hopefully, I'll
be in a cart by then on the
Senior Tour. But between
now'and then, I should be
pretty good."
It's that area between
now and then that has
become such a mystery. *
Woods says the state
of his left leg is not the
"doomsday" he keeps
reading and hearing about
in the media. And don't

Canucks seeking first Cup

Columbia Daniel Sedin
absently scratched his red
playoff beard, thinking
back on a decade of strug-
gle and setbacks before
the VancQuver Canucks
reached the Stanley Cup
finals against Boston.
Down the hallway, his
identical twin rubbed his

identical beard exactly the
same way.
Henrik Sedin was consid-
ering a more pressing prob-
lem: Now that the Swedish
superstars are finally close
enough to touch the Stanley
Cup, how do they get it
away from hulking defense-
man Zdeno Chara and the
bruising Bruins?
The only sure bet is that
one championship drought
will end for one long-

suffering hockey-loving
city after the Canucks face
Boston in the Stanley Cup
finals, starting in Game 1
tonight in Vancouver.
The Canucks have never
won it all, falling in their
only two previous finals
appearances in four decades
of existence.

straight trips to the finals
since Bobby Orr led them
to their last title in 1972.

FRENCH: Schiavone bounces back

Continued From Page 1B
behind him, the no-fuss, no-muss Federer
simply has won all 15 sets he's played so
far, capped Tuesday by a 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (3)
quarterfinal victory over No. 9-seeded
Gael Monfils of France.
"For- me, the plan is trying to get a
step further and into the finals of the
French Open," said Federer, who won the
-2009 title at Roland Garros to complete a
career Grand Slam but lost in the quarter-
finals a year ago. "At the end of the day,
that's, for me, the big picture, and that's
why I,entered the French Open. It wasn't
to stop Novak."
Nevertheless, their semifinal is sure to
be the talk of the tennis world .until it's
played Friday.
For Djokovic who didn't need to,
exert himself Tuesday, because his quar-
terfinal opponent, Fabio Fognini, with-
drew Monday with an injured left leg a
victory over Federer would guarantee a
rise to No. 1 in the rankings for the first
time. It also would make the second-seed-
ed Serb 42-0 in 2011, tying John McEnroe
in 1984 for the best start to a season in
the Open era, which began in 1968. And it
would put Djokovic one win from his first
French Open title, the objective he cares
most about at the moment
For Federer, a victory would put him
into his first Grand Slam final in more
than 16 months,.his longest drought since
he w6n his first major title at Wimbledon
in 2003. It would allow Federer to make
clear to everyone that he's still at the top of
the game as his 30th birthday approaches
in August. Plus,., it would serve as some-
thing of a rebuke to Djokovic, who beat
Federer in the semifinals at the U.S.
Open in September and Australian Open
in January.
'"There's less at stake for me than for
him," said Federer, who is 13-9 against
Djokovic over their careers but 0-3 this
year. "He's got a lot of things going on."
Both men surely are well aware who
the last player to defeat Djokovic any-
where was: Federer, a 6-4, 6-1 winner in
the ATP Finals at London, way back on
Nov. 27.
Against Monfils, Federer began poorly,
bothered by swirling wind that reached 30
mph and delayed the match at one point
because clouds of loose clay dust kicked
up into the players' eyes. He pushed one
easy forehand into the net and flubbed a
gimme volley. He double-faulted twice in
one game while getting broken at love en
route to trailing 3-1.
"It was not just playing against Gael,"
Federer said. "It was playing against the
It didn't take long to figure things out,
though. Federer broke Monfils to make it
3-all with a half-volley drop winner, then
again to end the first set by smacking a
return of a 128 mph serve so well that a
startled Monfils missed a forehand.
No one in this French Open has tested
Federer, whose streak of 23 consecutive
Grand Slam semifinals ended in Paris 12
months ago. That was followed by a quar-
terfinal exit at Wimbledon, too, hastening
talk of Federer's demise.
After getting an up-close look at Federer,
Monfils was urged to predict the outcome
of the Swiss star's next match.
"I don't know who's going to win. But as
usual, Roger ... is still right there. He has
still a lot of desire," Monfils said. "I'll be
the first to watch that semi."
Federer has won only one title this
season six fewer than Djokovic and
is seeded No. 3 in Paris, the first time he
hasn't been No. 1 or 2 at a Grand Slam
tournament since 2004. Instead, five-time

final match of the French Open tennis
tournament in Roland Garros Stadium in'
Paris on Tuesday.

French Open champion Rafael Nadal,
,who faces two-time runner-up and fifth-
seeded Robin Soderling in the quarter-
finals Wednesday, is seeded No. 1, and
Djokovic is No. 2.
Wednesday's other men's quarterfinal
is No. 4 Andy Murray against unseeded
Juan Ignacio Chela of Argentina. Playing
with a torn tendon in his right ankle,
Murray won the last five games to finish
off a 4-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 7-5 comeback victo-
ry over No. 15 Viktor Troicki of Serbia in
a fourth-round match suspended Monday
night because of darkness.
There was an odd scene at 3-2 in the fifth
set, when a ball boy apparently believ-
ing there was a break in action ran on
the court during a point while Troicki
was lining up an overhead smash. Troicki
hit the winner, but the chair umpired
ordered the point replayed.
Murray won the do-over, but Troicki
actually broke serve to take the game.
Eventually, Murray took the match, mak-
ing this French Open the first Grand Slam
tournament since Wimbledon in 1989
with the top five seeded ,men all in the
That sort of orderliness has been com-
pletely absent from the women's draw,
where none of the top three reached
the quarterfinals. But both of Tuesday's
matches were won by the higher-seeded
No. 5 Francesca Schiavone of Italy, the
defending champion, came back after
losing 10 of the first 12 games and beat
No. 14 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of
Russia 1-6, 7-5, 7-5.
Today, Schiavone will meet
No. 11 Marion Bartoli of France, wh"
defeated No. 13 Svetlana Kuznetsova of
Russia, the 2009 champion, 7-6 (4), 6-4.
Bartoli bounces on the balls of her feet
and takes practice swings between points,
then hits most shots with two hands
wrapped around her racket.
It all looks a tad unconventional, but
it works: She was the 2007 Wimbledon
runner-up and now is only the fourth
woman from France to reach the semifi-
nals at Roland Garros in the Open era.
Bartoli lost in the first or second round
in eight of her previous 10 French Opens.

up if you point out that
there are many older dads
these days, and many older
moms, too.
As to your daughter's at-
titude, she will be out of the'
house and gone soon, so
don't take personally that
she's not over the moon
about the changes that are
coming. If you maintain a
positive attitude, your enthu-
siasm will be contagious.
DEAR ABBY: I'm 53,
work in an office six to eight
hours a day, and then come
home to cook dinner and do
household chores.
My husband, 'Todd,"
is 48. He works eight to 10

hours a day and expects sex
three to four times a week.
I'm exhausted and can't do
it anymore!
My best friend, "Mavis,"
has been a widow for five
years. She tells me she's
going crazy because she
hasn't had sex in all this
time. She asked if I'd share
Todd just one night a week.
Mavis isn't pretty, but she
has a very shapely figure.
Frankly, I'm ready to agree,
but I haven't mentioned it to
If my husband agrees,
it would take a lot of pres-
sure off me and I could sure
use the rest What are your
thoughts on this arrange-
BREAK: Please find an-
other way to take a break.
What you're contemplating
would likely be the begin-
ning of the end of your mar-
,iage. You may think you'd
be "safe" because Mavis
isn't pretty, but t6 quote
Benjamin Franklin, "In the
dark, all cats are gray." If
. you're tired, let' Mavis help
with the chores but not
this one.

City Woman's Club, said Deborah
Paulson, library director.
The library has three locations:
the Main Branch,' Fort White
Branch and West Branch. Each
has meeting room space available
for non-profit groups.
The Main Branch moved into
its current building in August,
1978. The Fort White Branch
opened in July, 1988 and moved
to its current building in last
January. The West Branch opened
June, 2004.
The library has a collection of
more than 125,000 items. More
than 18,800 people are registered
borrowers in the system.
Programs and resources at the
library include checkout services
for books, DVDs and CDs, free
Internet access and computer
usage, and more.
Staff members can help patrons

The library also offers a free
adult literacy program, she said.
Volunteers teach others to read

Stephanie Tyson (from left), the children's librarian at the Columbia County Public Library's main branch, uses a sock puppet to read Gerald
McDermott's 'Zomo the Rabbit: A Trickster Tale from West Africa' to Yunika Suwandhi, 3, and her mother, Monika. "We help to bring the stories to life,'
Tyson said. 'I think we help them get interested and excited about the stories they have read before.'

The library maintains the com-
munity calendar and events board
on Comcast Channel 6.
The Friends of the Library
serve as advocates for the library
and help provide financial sup-
port for programs and other
items, Paulson said. One of the
FOL's chief fundraisers is the
used book store housed in the
main branch.
