A 500year event ED SEIFERT/ Columbia County Sheriffs Office A passerby lends a hand after a truck became stranded on County Road 240 following Debbys downpour. DAMAGE TOTAL: 400 HOMES AND COUNTING July Fourth festivities moved to fairgrounds 61 years later, Korean War vet awarded Purple Heart FEMA officials now on scene By RICK BURNHAM email@example.com Water management offi cials confirmed Saturday that rainfall in Columbia and Hamilton counties from Tropical Storm Debby reached a statistical level they normally reserve for the worst of storms. Calling Debby a 500year event, the Suwannee River Water Management District said on its website Saturday that rainfall levels reached 26 in some areas. Local officials have esti mated that number to be 30. The deluge made June not only the wettest of all Junes since 1932, according to SRWMD, but the month with the highest average rainfall overall. By JESSIE R. BOX firstname.lastname@example.org The annual Forth of July fireworks show will now be at the county fairgrounds because of flooding in the Lake DeSoto area. Our community will pull together, just like we always do, and well all enjoy the best fireworks show in North Florida, said Lake City Reporter publisher and Chamber of Commerce president Todd Wilson. The fairgrounds is the perfect reserve location to have this FILE A scene from last years event. Man shot to death FIREWORKS continued on 3A By HANNAH O. BROWN email@example.com Sixty-one years after being wounded in the Korean War, David Hinson was awarded the Purple Heart during a ceremony at the Veterans Medical Center on Saturday. Hinson was told the event was a pre-Fourth of July celebration. When he realized the true reason behind the gathering, it nearly knocked him off his feet. It kind of surprised me, Hinson said. I felt like fainting. I could hardly stand on my feet. Hinson, who turns 81 in November, applied for the medals in August after a lifetime of living without the deserved honor. His records were lost by the military around the time he was sent home, leaving no evi dence of his heroic history. He was always telling me, I just wish I could hold them one time before I die, sister-in-law Katie Hinson said. Hinson, of Lake City, was awarded several other MEDAL continued on 5A Woman admits guilt, say police; faces charges A Nation Guard High Mobility Vehicle flipped over in the water Friday on Suwannee Valley Road while on the way to deliver food to families in need. No one was injured. STEVE WHITEHEAD/ Special to the Reporter By HANNAH O. BROWN firstname.lastname@example.org Over 400 homes are estimated to have been dam aged from severe flooding due to Debby, and many people are still trapped in their homes, though the specific number remains unknown. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has arrived in Columbia County and is preparing to survey damaged areas in order to establish a plan of action for recovery. FEMA teams will scour the county by land, air and water to make their determina tion. The Florida Wildlife Commission has brought in 14 additional officers and six shallow draft patrol vessels. River levels continue to rise, but with less fervor than anticipated. The Suwannee River was measured at 83.77 feet on Saturday afternoon. The two-day 32 foot rise of the Suwannee was deemed the fastest on record, beating a 20 foot rise in two days from 1996. The Santa Fe River near Fort White was at 32.2 FEMA continued on 5A Insurance issues arise for many in area, 3A By RICK BURNHAM email@example.com A Lake City woman was arrrested Saturday after she admitted shooting a 29-year-old man to death in her home then placing the body in a Christmas tree bag, say police. Lavell George, of 743 Camp St., was charged with homi cide in the death of Maurice Mickler. The Lake City Police Department received a 911 call late Saturday advising that someone had been shot at the address. Upon arrival, Brian Bruenger found George stand ing in the yard. Police said George stated at the time, I shot him. Bruenger secured the suspect at the time as other officers arrived. Officers entered the resi dence and discovered a large amount of blood on the floor of the bathroom, along with what appeared to be a Christmas tree bag with a lot of blood in it. Micklers body was inside the bag. Police gave no indication as to a timeline in the shooting, but neighbors hinted that it may have happened the night before. Kathy Page, who lives around the corner from the apparent crime scene, said she heard a shot at about 9 p.m. Friday. My son and I were in the house and I heard what I thought was a gunshot, she said. I came outside, but did not hear anything else -any screams or anything.

Rick Scott is saying Florida will do nothing to comply with President Barack Obamas health care overhaul. Scott recently said he would follow the law if it were upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. But he went on national television on Friday night and said Florida will not take any steps to help carry out the overhaul. Scott said on Fox News that the state would not expand the Medicaid program in order to lower the number of uninsured residents. The governor also said that Florida would not set up a state-run health exchange, or a marketplace where people needing insurance policies could shop for them. The governor said that expanding eligi bility of Medicaid to those just above the poverty level would not help the citizens of Florida. Fla. teen shot after horsing around with gun LARGO A southwest Florida teenag er has been hospitalized after authorities say he was apparently shot while playing with a gun. The 17-year-old was taken to the hos pital Friday night with life-threatening injuries. Authorities have not released his name. Its unclear if he was alone or if others were involved. Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies are investigating the shooting, but say prelim inary evidence revealed it may have been the result of horseplay. Lee County to get new artificial reef offshore PUNTA GORDA An artificial reef will be sunk 30 miles offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. The News-Press reports that on Monday, Lee Countys Marine Services Program and Reefmakers LLC a Key West company that specializes in sinking ships as artificial reefs is scheduled to scuttle the 165-foot World War II Coast Guard cutter Mohawk in 90 feet of water. Because the sea floor off Lee County is barren sand, the county has deployed artificial reefs to provide habitat for fish and invertebrates. According to the county more than 150 fish species have been docu mented on the reefs. Lee County has 20 permitted artificial reef sites. A 2010 University of Florida study showed Lee countys artificial reefs had an economic impact in 2009 of $104.2 million. Deputies find weapons cache in Fla. mans home FORT MYERS Authorities have dis covered a weapons cache at a southwest Florida home while investigating a fight between a husband and wife. Deputies said 37-year-old Dashnor Elezi choked and elbowed his wife during an argument, then shoved a towel in her mouth while allegedly holding her nose so she would pass out. Elezis wife told Lee County deputies Saturday that her husband had an arsenal of weapons and gave them consent to search the house. Authorities said they found 24 firearms, ammunition, explosive materials and detonators. They even found a rocket pro pelled grenade launcher. Elezi faces several charges including domestic battery, possession of explo sives and resisting arrest. Federal authorities were also alerted. Board denies Fla. Gulf Coasts appeal TALLAHASSEE The Florida Board of Governors has denied Florida Gulf Coast Universitys appeal of a reduced tuition increase. The Board of Governors previously agreed to let the Fort Myers school raise tuition by 12 percent this fall. The university asked for a 14 percent increase. A commit tee voted 6-0 Friday to deny the request. The tuition increases, which ranged from 9 percent to 15 percent, will raise $98.32 million across the State University System. Thats about a third of the $300 million spending cut the 11 universities will be fac ing when the new state budget goes into effect Sunday. The Legislature did not set a base tuition increase this year for undergraduate-level tuition, leaving universities to seek the full 15 percent cap. Fla. police captain charged with molesting girl MIRAMAR South Florida police cap tain has been arrested on charges that he forced a 15-year-old girl to disrobe so he could check whether she was having sex. Broward County prosecutors say 46-yearold Miramar police Capt. Juan De Los Rios is facing two counts of lewd and lascivious conduct by an adult against a minor. Each count carries a potential 15-year prison sen tence. Authorities say De Los Rios encountered the girl and a 19-year-old man in the back seat of a car. The two told him they were just talking and not having sex. But pros ecutors say De Los Rios told the girl to take off her clothes so he could make sure. A 28-year veteran, De Los Rios is sus pended without pay. Court records did not list a defense attor ney. Deputies find juvenile who escaped facility KISSIMMEE A 16-year-old is back in custody after escaping from a central Florida juvenile detention facility a few days ago. Jesse Pacheco was seen leaving the Adolescent Residential Campus after the fire alarm went off Wednesday. Osceola County Sheriffs deputies searched with K-9 dogs and aviation units, but were unable to find Pacheo. He was found Friday night after depu ties received a tip about his location. He was arrested and booked into the Orange County Juvenile Detention Center. Suspect killed in fight with Lee County deputies FORT MYERS Authorities say a man was fatally shot during a fight with deputies on Interstate 75 in southwest Florida. The Lee County Sheriffs Office reports that two deputies pulled over 28year-old Carlos Joseph Charles for speed ing and illegal window tint on Thursday. During a search of the vehicle, deputies reported finding a large amount of drugs. An altercation followed, with Charles being killed and a deputy being injured.

Lord Byron LOS ANGELES When Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes first got together, he jumped on a couch, she gushed girlishly, and many of their fans said, Huh? Their split could cause just as much drama. Not only are the images of two Hollywood stars at stake, so is the future of 6-year-old Suri, with some speculating that Holmes decision to file for divorce in New York might mean shes seeking sole custody of their daughter. Ultimately, Cruise may have the most to lose. Theres no question this divorce is going to hurt his public image, said Dorie Clark, author of the forth coming Reinventing You: Define Your Brand, Imagine Your Future. His brand was already tarnished significantly when he first got together with Holmes five years ago and was infamously jumping up and down on Oprahs couch, and shortly afterward the videos of him praising Scientology were leaked, she con tinued. This divorce is another opportu nity for questions to be raised about his personal life, his religious beliefs which many consider outside the mainstream and thats not what a box-office star really wants. California divorce attorney Michael Kelly, who is not involved with the Cruise-Holmes case, called Holmes East Coast filing a tactical move that signifies there will be an attempt to gain an advantage. New Yorks comparative-fault divorce laws could be advantageous for Holmes, he said. The couple lived in Los Angeles. Cruise and Holmes married in 2006 after a whirlwind love affair. He proposed at the Eiffel Tower. Their wedding was held at a 15th century Italian castle. She filed for divorce Thursday, ending her first marriage. This will be Cruises third divorce. He was previously married to actresses Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman, with whom he has two children. Campbell, perfume firm settle NYC lawsuits NEW YORK Naomi Campbell has settled a New York court dis pute with a perfume company that said she unfairly squeezed her longtime agent and others out of profits from her fragrance line. The supermodel, meanwhile, said she wasnt given full informa tion before signing a deal with them. Court records show the duel ing suits between Moodform Mission and Campbell were closed Thursday. Moodform Missions lawyer, Daniel Bright, said Friday his clients are happy with the settlement. He wouldnt disclose details. Campbells lawyer didnt immedi ately return a call. Former Campbell modeling agent Carole White and a cosmet ics company formed Moodform Mission. The partnership said Campbell violated a 1998 contract by inking a new fragrance-licensing agreement in 2008. Campbell said she didnt know for years that White had a stake in the perfume partnership. Tom Cruise, right, waves to well-wishers as he arrives with his fiancee Katie Holmes in the old port of Marseille, southern France. Holmes attorney Jonathan Wolfe said Friday that the couple is divorcing, but called it a private matter for the family. ASSOCIATED PRESS

HANNAH O. BROWN/ Lake City Reporter Hamilton County Deputy Tim McDaniel hands donations to volunteer citizens for flood victims. By HANNAH O. BROWN email@example.com County residents are ris ing up to collect donations for victims of recent and ongoing flooding. Water is the biggest need right now, Walmart manager Zack Paulk said. Paulk requested that Walmart donate goods after hearing of the need for resources for flood relief. Paulk said he was informed that nearly 600 people have been evacu ated from their homes. Dozens of pallets of water and hundreds of boxes of food have been donated and delivered to Columbia County by Walmart. One load was delivered on Thursday and a second on Friday. Diapers, sunscreen and bug spray were also includ ed in the second truckload. We just felt the need to help the community, peri od, he said. Paulk said County Commissioner Ron Williams, senior assis tant David Kraus and other county employees have helped to coordinate efforts. Food and supplies have been delivered to the Emergency Operations Center. Thats the fairest way, Paulk said. There has been more than one community that has been impacted. Debbie Evans, owner of Dees-Parrish Family Funeral Home, is working with Hamilton County dep uties Cecil Brownfield and Tim McDaniel to distrib ute donations to Columbia, Hamilton and Suwannee counties. Evans said she lives in northern Columbia County. She said her neighbors lost all their belongings in a matter of two hours. We were spared and my neighbors werent, she said. Donations are being given to the Christian Service Center and United Way, who will then dis tribute the goods to drop sites in the tri-county area. Residents can pick up goods from both centers. Donations will be accept ed at the Lake City Reporter and Dees-Parrish Family Funeral home throughout the week. Evans said over 2,000 pounds of donations were collected on Friday alone. We have really been get ting a little overwhelmed, but we are going to get through it, she said. By HANNAH O. BROWN firstname.lastname@example.org Local insurance providers say their phones have been ringing with calls from people seeking options to finance their recovery. John Wheeler from The Wheeler Agency said people have been contacting his agency to report claims and to question whether they are covered. Some people know they dont have it, other people are hoping they have it, other people are just searching, Wheeler said. Probably 99 percent of homes in this area probably do not have flood insurance, Bruce Drawdy of Drawdy Insurance Services said. Drawdy said that many people do not purchase flood insurance because they have never needed it in the past, their mortgage does not require it or they simply do not want to pay the cost of flood insurance premiums. Flood insurance premiums are expensive and the money has to be paid in full up front. The cost is based on the elevation of the home and whether the area is in a flood zone. Based on that criteria, premi ums can be as low as $250 or as high as $4,000. Flood insurance is never includ ed within homeowners insurance policies, Drawdy said. Because it is such a massive loss when it happens, private insurance companies cant afford it, he said. Flood insurance policies are funded by a taxpayer subsidized program called the National Flood Insurance Program. While other policies will fund the full replacement cost of items lost, flood insurance only pays for the depreciated value of damaged items. It is heartbreaking. We have seen this too many times, Drawdy said. Drawdy said that quite a few people, whose homes were not flooded, have called wanting to purchase flood insurance in the wake of the storm. Insurance companies are unable to offer flood insurance policies while a flood is still looming. New poli cies have a 30-day waiting period, putting help from insurers even further out of reach. Additionally, retroactive insur ance options are not available. A lot of this is a reactionary emotional inquiry, Drawdy said. But when is a flood not a flood? Callaway resident Chris Williams woke up on Tuesday morning to find the water ris ing quickly into his home. By Wednesday, the water had risen to halfway the height of his front door. Williams does not have flood insurance. His home was said not to be in a flood zone. Williams is questioning the lan guage used by insurance compa nies for flood insurance policies. People have to understand this aint a flood, Williams said. Insurance companies want to use this as the term flood. Its not. Were not flooded. We are the victims of people not maintaining the county retention ponds water in the proper area and the proper drainage. Williams claims that since his home does not sit near a signifi cant body of water, the deluge of water that has destroyed it should not be considered a flood. What you are having now is insurance companies manipulate the wording to make us victims. So wheres the fairness in that? he said. Drawdy, who is not Williams insurer, said the definition of flood is clearly defined as a massive inundation of rising water in insurance policies. It doesnt matter if it comes from a lake or a stream or so much rain that it just keeps ris ing. A flood is a flood, Drawdy said. It is not uncommon for floods to occur outside flood zones. Twenty-five percent of all flood insurance claims occur outside of designated flood zones, Wheeler said. Drawdy said hurricane or windstorm insurance is often included within homeowners policies, but only flood insur ance will pay for damage caused by floods. Amy Francis in-laws are among many local residents who did not purchase flood insurance. The first floor of her in-laws two-story home has completely filled with water, Francis said. Francis said the family did not purchase flood insurance because the house was said to be in an area that hadnt flooded for 100 years. We dont have any money, she said. We arent getting one penny of assistance. Francis said she and her inlaws, Gillian and Peter Francis, are staying at her house now but she is worried about how long rebuilding the house will take. The house is the one of two that flooded in the neigh borhood and the water has not receded yet. No one could have ever antic ipated this and thats part of the reason why you are seeing so many people in such a terrible situation, Drawdy said. Wheeler expressed similar sentiments, saying that he is not surprised people are calling. This is devastating and its natural to call the agent and find out if there is anything, Wheeler said. Insurance is complicated. Nobody complete ly understands their policy. Insurance options under scrutiny after Debby It is heartbreaking. We have seen this too many times.

Everyone has been personally or know some one that has been affected by Tropical Storm Debby, Decker said. It has been quite challenging get ting the events location changed but we felt like this was something that the community needs. Decker believes that this is a positive move in part because of additional parking. This will be a great event and a time to cel ebrate, which we all can appreciate.

BY E-MAIL: email@example.com Q San Jose Mercury News OPINION Sunday, July 1, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AEDIT Q Todd Wilson is publisher of the Lake City Reporter. D uring the past week, IÂ’ve seen things that have made my heart sick. IÂ’ve seen things I never thought possible in Columbia County. IÂ’ve seen flooding situations worse than our hurricane season of 2004 Â– and it was terrible then. IÂ’ve seen things this week that I find difficult to compre-hend. But in the same frame, I see sweeping acts of human kind-ness. I see neighbors helping neighbors and others assisting total strangers. I see resilience. I see our community respond-ing like it always does. We always pick up ourselves and each other. The rivers are continuing to rise to a record crest and that will mean increased flooding for many who live near our rivers in the region. In other areas where rain water overcame creeks and retention ponds, the shift this week will focus on recovery and cleanup. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by the flood-ing caused by Tropical Storm Debby. You can help our residents who need basic food, toilet-ries and clothes by dropping off supplies to the Catholic Charities office in Lake City or you can bring them to the Lake City Reporter office and we will deliver them to the col-lection location. Also, everyone attending the Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration, which is now moved to the Columbia County Fairgrounds, is asked to bring something to donate: Non-perishable foods, gently used clothing of all sizes for adults and children, diapers, simple toiletry items, etc. Anything helps. Please bring an item or two to the fairgrounds where a collection location will be set up during the festivi-ties.FIREWORKS MOVEDJust to clarify, the annual Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration has been officially moved to the Columbia County Fairgrounds. The same times for entertainment, 5 p.m., and the fireworks ignition, 9:20 p.m., are in place. This is a Chamber of Commerce event, title sponsored by the Lake City Reporter for the eighth consecutive year. The event was moved because of the uncertainty of the water table around Lake DeSoto downtown. The area near the helipad, where the fireworks are staged, was still saturated on Friday and there was concern it would be too wet still when crews began the fireworks set-up this week. Also, the areas where electrical cables would need to be set for vendors also was saturated and officials were concerned about safety. Because of the size of this one-day event, the decision was made on Friday to move the festivities. DonÂ’t let the move dampen the celebration. We all need the short break from the reality we all faced last week, so come out and enjoy top-notch musi-cal entertainment, experience some great food from the ven-dors and see the best fireworks show in North Florida. Bring a lawn chair and relax. The event is free, but if you feel compelled, bring a non-perishable food item or some gently used clothing and make a donation to help your flooded neighbors in Columbia County.THANKSBefore and after the rains stopped, there were a lot of public servants doing every-thing they could in the face of ugly conditions. The men and women of the Lake City and Columbia County Public Works Departments deserve a heart-felt Â“thank you.Â” These work-ers, along with our many emer-gency responders, fire fighters and law enforcement officers in all branches of city, county and state service, served us above and beyond the call of duty dur-ing Tropical Storm Debby. I want to personally thank our newspaper carriers, as well. These dedicated individuals are independent contractors who operate their own small busi-nesses and deliver our product to your homes and businesses. They did an outstanding job last week in the flood conditions. If there was any way possible to navigate the road to your home or business, you received your newspaper. It may have been a little late, but where possible, you got it. I appreciate our car-rier contractors and their dedi-cation. These groups mostly hear complaints from the public in the course of a normal day, but we see them doing all they can to help people during desperate times like we experienced last week. If I left out any group or organization, itÂ’s my oversight, but if you were on the ground either working your job or as a volunteer, thank you for your service and God bless you all! Todd Wilsontwilson@lakecityreporter.com A nyone seen my miss-ing muse? Okay, IÂ’m all packed and ready to go on my vacation. DonÂ’t look to hear from me for awhile because I might take an extended vacation. So, you ask. Where am I going? Well, IÂ’ll tell you. ThereÂ’s a place where writers go from time to time to recharge their batteries and refresh them-selves. It doesnÂ’t have any particu-lar name but it lives inside each of us who practice the craft of writ-ing. When we find our phrases flagging, our sentences suffering, our strong nouns and verbs weak-ened, sometimes itÂ’s necessary to go there and get help. Kind of like a sauna for the creative soul. A Shangri-la for writers, if you will. IÂ’m at that point. IÂ’ve been doing this column for years. I donÂ’t work for the newspaper but I write this column as an aside from my everyday life. And it has been very rewarding. It truly has. Over the years, my column evolved from sort of a bully pulpit to its current form. At some point, I chose to leave the political rant-ing and raving to others. Lord knows there are enough of them out there. And theyÂ’re all right, of course. At least thatÂ’s what theyÂ’d have you think. So why add one more voice to the storm and tem-pest? No thank you very much. So I sat down and decided to do something different. And if youÂ’ve been reading this column the past couple of years, youÂ’ll know what IÂ’m talking about. I decided to take my lifeÂ’s experi-ences and day to day happenings and turn them into stories. Oh, I embellished here and there, but thatÂ’s what columnists like me are allowed to do. IÂ’ve been blessed with a very active imagination. Always have been. On my best days, I can sit down and invent a 750 word yarn in thirty minutes. Week in and week out. But of late, IÂ’ve noticed that there are times the bucket comes up from the well without a drop of water in it. Or worse, the water that is in it is a bit stale. And as youÂ’ve probably noticed, the weekly Cup of Joe has become more of an every other week affair. To me, thatÂ’s just plain unsatisfactory. What I seem to have is a bad case of writerÂ’s block and like this dang rain, it doesnÂ’t show any signs of letting up real soon. To put it plain, there are times when the creative process just isnÂ’t there. And when you try to force it, like IÂ’ve been guilty of doing a few times, youÂ’re only cheating your readers. You donÂ’t know how much it warms my soul to open my e-mail or my mailbox and hear from any one of you, even the fellow who sends me clips of my columns with grammatical misfires circled. But IÂ’ve come to expect it, bless his heart. Now, if anyone knows the way to Shangri-la, please send me detailed directions. IÂ’ve never been real good at reading a map. Perhaps IÂ’ll find my missing muse there, basking in the sun and waiting for me to arrive. CUP OF JOE Joe PalmerT he United States is a step closer to joining the rest of the devel-oped world in making health care accessible to most or all citizens, thanks to ThursdayÂ’s welcome ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court. And in writing the opinion, Chief Justice John Roberts took a step toward restoring the integrity of the nationÂ’s highest court, which, until this case, was looking more and more like an arm of the Republican Party. The victory for the Obama administration is insignificant compared with the hope this ruling gives the 50 million Americans -17.1 percent of the population -who now lack health insurance. Millions more, perhaps a majority of working Americans, fear their tenuous grasp on health insurance will vanish with a pink slip. RobertsÂ’ role in this 5-4 decision is fascinating. It may be that the sheer humanity of health care reform motivated the chief justice to dig deep in legal precedent to justify the federal mandate to buy insurance; it was a textbook example of judicial restraint, unlike the Citizens United decision, which created the controversial corporations-as-people concept out of whole cloth. Or, as some speculate, this may be a cynically clever tactic by Roberts to insulate the court, and his own legacy, from the partisan reputation it was devel-oping. Regardless, it is a good ruling for America. With this ruling, momentum shifts toward greater access to health insurance and a healthier America. It canÂ’t happen too soon. A study released last week by Families USA shows three working-age adults die prema-turely every hour -26,000 a year -because they lack health insur-ance. The court was wise to find a way not to turn back the clock. With the ability to finance reform intact, the federal govern-ment needs to turn to cost con-trols, which have been the weak link in the Obama reforms. Today, celebrate. Tomorrow, get to work. Ruling avictory for us all O n Thursday, the Supreme Court struck down, in a 6 to 3 ruling, the Stolen Valor Act of 2005, which declared it a federal misdemeanor to falsely pres-ent oneself as a decorated military officer. Likely to be overlooked in the wake of the Obamacare decision, the CourtÂ’s ruling in United States v. Alvarez is never-theless a commendable reinforcement of the First Amendment and its sanctity. The case that became United States v. Alvarez began in 2007, when Xavier Alvarez, a California man, falsely and deliberately declared himself a retired Marine with 25 years of ser-vice and the Â“Congressional Medal of Honor.Â” He was tried and convicted in a California court under the terms of the Stolen Valor Act, a decision the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit overturned. Ultimately, the issue before the Supreme Court was the legitimacy of content-based restrictions on speech, and the court was right to strike down a law that dangerously imposed on an individualÂ’s constitutionally guaranteed right to the freedom of speech, even to lie. In the dissenting opinion, Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. Â— joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia Â— raised objections with which it is easy to sympa-thize. Lies like Mr. AlvarezÂ’s, they wrote, undermine Â“our countryÂ’s system of military honorsÂ” at the same time as they inflict Â“real harm on actual medal recipients and their families.Â” This is unde-niable, but the lies the court has protected are, as Justice Anthony M. Kennedy noted in the majority opinion, a function of the Â“sometimes inconvenient principles of the First Amendment.Â” But it is precisely in tolerating Â“inconvenientÂ” speech that the First Amendment is tested and must be upheld. This is not to say that Mr. Alvarez and others who lie about military service donÂ’t deserve rebuke for insulting those who serve and their families. They do. ItÂ’s just best that such discipline come from the public, not the law, and that the free-doms for which real Marines fight continue to be treated as sacred.

FEMA: On scene Continued From Page 1A long-awaited medals such as the Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal and the Republic of Korea War Service Medal. Katie Hinson planned the event, careful to keep it a secret from Hinson. He lives to get the mail, she said. I was like, Lord, what am I going to do when he goes down there and he gets these in the mail. She said she had to make sure someone was always with him to pick up the mail so that the surprise would not be ruined. The Purple Heart is awarded to American soldiers who are wounded in action. You cant have a truck accident in the army and get a purple heart, said Wilbur Corbitt, finance officer of the Military Order of the Purple Heart Chapter 772. Hinson remembers well April of 1951 in Korea. I had frostbitten feet. I like to lost my feet, Hinson said. It felt like a house. You couldnt pick them up, they were so heavy. Hinson remembered a place he fought at during the war called Barbed Wire Hill, also known as Old Baldy. Shells come in, so many of them there wasnt no trees, it was just bald. No grass or nothing, he said. Hinson said he remembers hearing the sound of bullets buzzing by him there and seeing the traces of each shot in the darkness of night. He remembered being shot in his right arm there. Hinson said receiving the medals now means a great deal to him. We have been trying to get them for a long time, he said. Corbitt said Hinsons situation is not an uncommon one. The same thing happens to a lot of soldiers. Its not an uncommon incident. When it takes 60 years to get it straight, thats the uncom mon thing, Corbitt said. Corbitt said the frequency of distribution for the Purple Heart changes with the times as well as the wars that the country is engaged in. We go through droughts where nobody gets it because theres no war and also we go through extended periods like Afghanistan and Iraq where we get it constantly, he said. As times have changed, the requirements for eligibility of the purple heart have changed as well. There are probably more people with P.T.S.D., whereas back in my day that was not even a term that was used, Corbitt said. Post traumatic stress disorder is a severe anxiety disorder that results from exposure to trau matic events. Corbitt said that the same symptoms of the disorder were commonly seen when he was in the service, but they were said to be caused by combat fatigue. If soldiers went a psychiatrist with combat fatigue, it would leave an unfavorable mark on their military records, Corbitt said. You could just about hang your career up, he said. Corbitt said that the Order of the Purple Heart enjoys their involvement with cases like Hinsons. We really are dedicated to doing things like this, so when Katie came to us we knew right away that we were going to pursue this, he said. MEDAL: Vet Continued From Page 1A HANNAH O.

INDIANS continued on 4B Jackson feels good heading into week off.No room for bad leadersC overing sports, sometimes I come across situations with questionable actions by adults that are supposed to be in leadership roles. Luckily for Columbia and Fort White high schools, the coaches in place are good role models for the youth of the county, but thatÂ’s not always the case when it comes to travel teams. Often times parents are appointed coaches due to a lack of other options. Many times this works out as parents are willing to give their all for the benefit of their children and others. But sometimes the wrong person is chosen. This week we received an e-mail about one of these cases. According to the letter, one coach for a travel team went above and beyond the threshold for arguing a call. This coach was said to make threats towards the umpire continually throughout the game, threats during the post-game handshake and even into the trophy celebration. That kind of behavior should never come into play when coaching children. ItÂ’s important, especially at a young age, not only to learn how to win, but also learn how to lose with dignity. Putting blame onto officials often times is finding an excuse for the obvious. Often times it is an excuse to the obvious, which is a team simply didnÂ’t play its best game or met a superior opponent. Life is full of blessings and failures, but itÂ’s just as important to fail with grace. As players grow in age, championships will become much more rare and competition will become greater, thus leading to more failures. But failures should be used as lessons. They should drive athletes. They should be used as learning lessons to become better. Most importantly, they shouldnÂ’t be filled with excuses. When pointing the finger, there are three pointed back at the culprit. ItÂ’s important that the first place a coach points the finger when coaching players at this age is at himself. ItÂ’s important to take the blame and use it as a building tool to mold these young athletes. After all, the most important lesson players can learn is to lose with the same grace as when they win.

Small league, big featBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Â— ColumbiaÂ’s 15-under all-star team picked a near perfect way to begin the Babe Ruth Small League Tournament in Fort White on Saturday. Columbia drew South Lakeland in the opening round of pool play and quickly disposed of the team. The 15-under all-stars used a combined no-hit-ter from Jason Bass and Garrett Finell to put away South Lakeland 11-0. Â“We came out with good pitching today and anytime you no-hit a team, thatÂ’s special,Â” Columbia head coach J.T. Clark said. Jason Bass led the charge through the first three innings as he retired all nine batters he faced with strikeouts. Â“Anytime you strike out nine batters in nine attempts, thatÂ’s impressive,Â” Clark said. Â“WeÂ’re going to come out tomorrow and do the same thing to see what we can do to compete in this pool.Â” Finell finished the final two innings without allow-ing a hit and walking only one batter. Columbia also had success at the plate. Jordan Culp was 2-for-2 with a double and a single. Harrison Shubert went 2-for-2 wiht a double, a single and a walk. Tyler Morgan finished the game 2-for-2 with two doubles. Columbia takes on Middleburg at 6 p.m. today and finishes pool play with an 8 a.m. game against White House on Monday. Fort WhiteÂ’s 15-under team also easily won its opening game with a 14-0 victory against Suwannee. It continues its journey at 1 p.m. today against Melrose and takes on Normandy at 3:30 p.m. on Monday. Fort WhiteÂ’s 12-under allstars finished with a 6-5 loss against Marietta Bullsbay. The 12-under team will try to bounce back against San Jose at 4 p.m. today. Fort White takes on Suwannee at 2 p.m. on Monday. Fort WhiteÂ’s 10-under finished with a 5-2 loss against Keystone Heights. The 10-unders have a late 9 p.m. start scheduled against Union County today before finishing out pool play against Lafayette Mayo at 1 p.m. on Monday. The Championship games will take place on Tuesday.

Casual waterBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comLocal golf courses are taking a cue from Broadway as the show must go on. Despite flooding earlier this week that forced both Quail Heights Country Club and The Country Club at Lake City to close its doors, both courses are welcoming golfers once again. Each course opened back up on Thursday and carts are now available. The Country Club at Lake City currently only has nine holes open for play but according to general man-ager Carl Ste-Marie there should be a functional 18 holes this week. Â“ThereÂ’s a stretch of holes including three through six that are under water,Â” he said. Â“WeÂ’ve had that hap-pen before and expect that to last a couple of months. What weÂ’re doing is hav-ing players play three holes twice from different tees and the full 18 could be ready to go as soon as (today).Â” Quail Heights pro Todd Carter said that despite some repairs, the course is ready to go. Â“We had to repair about five bridges, but the water just kind of ran through us,Â” he said. Â“IÂ’ve seen it worse and we never went under. Now weÂ’re in the process of getting the course ready for the Lake City Open and the CHS Lady TigersÂ’ Golf three-man scramble the fol-lowing week.Â” Local courses open despite flooding this week.

ASSOCIATED PRESSNew Orleans Hornets basketball player Anthony Davis po ses in his uniform in New Orleans on Friday.Kentucky dominates NBA DraftBy BRIAN MAHONEYAssociated PressNEWARK, N.J. Â— Anthony Davis hugged his college teammate, hugged his coach, and climbed on stage as the No. 1 pick. Turns out, that was just the start of KentuckyÂ’s party at the NBA draft. The Wildcats became the first school to have the top two picks and tied a record with six players taken over-all Thursday night. After the New Orleans Hornets made the long-expected selection of Davis, Charlotte followed by taking fellow freshman Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Saying he was nervous even though his selection was no surprise, Davis shared an embrace with Kidd-Gilchrist, seated at a nearby table. Â“My arm was shaking and my hands were sweaty. Got up and hugged Michael, my best friend, wanted to hug him for a minute,Â” Davis said. Â“When my name got called, wanted to make sure he stayed close.Â” He did Â— following Davis as the next player to climb up and shake Commissioner David SternÂ’s hand. Â“ItÂ’s crazy,Â” Davis said moments after Kidd-GilchristÂ’s selection. Â“Michael is a great player. We have two down and four more to go. Hopefully, all of them will go in the first round.Â” They didnÂ’t, the only disappointment for the Wildcats. They settled for four in the first round and a tie with North Carolina, which won the race to four picks Â— all in the top 17 selections. Harrison Barnes (No. 7, Golden State), Kendall Marshall (No. 13, Phoenix), John Henson (No. 14, Milwaukee) and Tyler Zeller (No. 17, Dallas and later traded to Cleveland) all went between Kidd-Gilchrist and the next Kentucky player, Terrence Jones at No. 18 to Houston. Otherwise, it was the WildcatsÂ’ night. Kentucky got its fourth first-round pick at No. 29 with Marquis Teague, anoth-er freshman, who is headed to Chicago as a possible replacement for the injured Derrick Rose. Doron Lamb went 42nd to Milwaukee, and Darius Miller was 46th to New Orleans. Only UNLV in 1977 had six players drafted Â— but none in the first round. Kentucky coach John Calipari has been criticized for recruiting Â“one-and-doneÂ” players, they stay the required one year and leave, but he looked thrilled hugging his two stars at the start of the night. ItÂ’s been a long time since a school made such an impact at the top of the draft. UCLA had the Nos. 1 and 3 picks in 1969, when Milwaukee took Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Â— then Lew Alcindor Â— and Lucius Allen went third to the Seattle SuperSonics. Davis will begin his pro career in the same city where he ended it with a national title. College bas-ketballÂ’s player of the year as a freshman was the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four despite shooting just 1 for 10 from the field in the championship game, grabbing 16 rebounds and blocking six shots in the victory over Kansas. Ivanovic, Schiavone reach 4th round at Wimbledon By HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressWIMBLEDON, England Â— Recent French Open champions Ana Ivanovic and Francesca Schiavone reached the fourth round at Wimbledon with victories Saturday. Ivanovic had a much tougher time. The 14th-seeded Ivanovic, whose only Grand Slam title came in Paris in 2008, came back from a set down to beat 22nd-seeded Julia Goerges 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. Defending champion Petra Kvitova wasnÂ’t chal-lenged a bit, getting to the fourth round with a 6-1, 6-0 victory over 53rd-ranked Varvara Lepchenko of the United States. Playing her usual varied and attacking style, the 24th-seeded Schiavone defeated 31st-ranked Klara Zakopalova 6-0, 6-4 in 68 minutes. Schiavone won the 2010 French Open, then was the runner-up last year. The 32-year-old Schiavone reached the fourth round at Wimbledon for only the sec-ond time in 13 appearances. She was a quarterfinalist in 2009, but bowed out in the first round the follow-ing year, two weeks after becoming the first Italian woman to win a Grand Slam title. Schiavone played far steadier than Zakopalova, who finished with 20 unforced errors, 12 in the first set alone. And while Schiavone never faced a break point, she earned five on ZakopalovaÂ’s serve and converted four. IvanovicÂ’s best showing at Wimbledon was a run to the semifinals in 2007. But she lost in the third round last year, and the first round in 2010. Against Goerges, who was trying to give Germany three women in the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time since 1987, Ivanovic kept teetering on the edge of real trouble. Serving for the match, she faced a break point at 30-40, and came up with a cross-court forehand winner that clipped the outside edge of a line. An ace set up match point, and when Goerges netted a forehand, that was it. Also on SaturdayÂ’s schedule were four-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams against 25th-seeded Zheng Jie, the third time theyÂ’ve met at the grass-court Grand Slam tournament; No. 4 Andy Murray against 2006 Australian Open runner-up Marcos Baghdatis; and four American men: No. 10 Mardy Fish, No. 30 Andy Roddick, Sam Querrey and qualifier Brian Baker. The 126th-ranked Baker was the first of that quartet to play Â— and he won, beat-ing Benoit Paire of France 6-4, 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 to reach the fourth round. Baker needed five operations from 2005-8, including reconstructive surgery on his right elbow, and returned to the sport about a year ago. He began 2012 ranked 458th, but SaturdayÂ’s victory is expected to move him into the top 80. And featured in the dayÂ’s second match on Court 12 was 100th-ranked Lukas Rosol of the Czech Republic, who hoped to follow up his remarkable second-round upset of 11-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal. Rosol was facing No. 27 Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany for a berth in the fourth round. Six-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer gave Rosol plenty of credit for showing other players that such surprising results are possible. Almost happened to Federer, too. The owner of a record 16 major trophies, and a quarterfinalist or better at 32 consecutive major tour-naments, the third-seeded Federer dropped the first two sets against 29th-seed-ed Julien Benneteau of France, then was two points away from losing six times, before coming all the way back Friday night to pull out a 4-6, 6-7 (3), 6-2, 7-6 (6), 6-1 victory in the third round. Â“Oh, my God, it was brutal,Â” Federer said. Â“The thing, when youÂ’re down two sets to love, is to stay calm, even though itÂ’s hard, because people are freak-ing out, people are worried for you. ... You donÂ’t have, obviously, many lives left out there. You just try to play tough and focus point for point. Sounds so boring, but itÂ’s the right thing to do out there.Â” He should know. This was the eighth time in FedererÂ’s illustri-ous career that he over-came a two-set hole, includ-ing against 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro in the French Open quarterfinals 3 1/2 weeks ago. Â“Mentally, heÂ’s a rock. HeÂ’s two sets down and he doesnÂ’t show anything. And after that, if your level is a little bit lower Â— right here, right now, he takes the opportunity,Â” said Benneteau, whose cramp-ing thighs were massaged by a trainer during two final-set changeovers. Â“At the beginning of the third set, I was not as good as I was in the first two sets, and in 5 minutes, itÂ’s 4-0.Â” Like Federer and Nadal, Novak Djokovic fell behind against someone he was expected to beat easily: The Serb ceded the first set, get-ting broken at love by No. 28 Radek Stepanek, RosolÂ’s Davis Cup teammate for the Czech Republic. But quick as can be, Djokovic turned things around, breaking Stepanek to begin each of the next three sets for a 4-6, 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 victory that moved him closer to a semi-final showdown against Federer. Once Djokovic had StepanekÂ’s serve-and-vol-ley style measured, the passing winners and shoe-top-high returns started flowing. Talking about fall-ing behind in the second set, Stepanek said: Â“Not a good move from my side, because once you get these top guys going, then itÂ’s tough to stop them.Â” Benneteau might have sounded the same lament. For quite a lengthy stretch, he played positively Rosol-esque tennis: hard serves and stinging groundstrokes directed at lines. No fear. But Federer found an opening and barged through, saved in particular by this: He won 63 of the 80 points he served over the last three sets. Both Djokovic Â— who takes on unseeded Viktor Troicki in an all-Serbian matchup Monday Â— and Federer Â— who begins Week 2 by meeting 2002 Wimbledon semifinalist Xavier Malisse Â— found it odd to be playing with Centre CourtÂ’s retractable roof closed as a precaution, despite a blue sky over-head. Â“ThatÂ’s a bit of getting used to. Indoor grass is not something weÂ’re quite famil-iar with,Â” Federer said. HereÂ’s what happened: A drizzle delayed the start of play Monday, so tourna-ment officials decided to shut the roof. By the time it was closed, and Djokovic headed out to play, the sun was out.

Â— Georgia tailback Isaiah Crowell was dismissed from the team Friday by coach Mark Richt after the sophomore was arrested on felony weapons charges. Police found a gun in CrowellÂ’s vehicle early Friday morning. Georgia announced the dismissal Friday afternoon. RichtÂ’s short statement in the announcement did not men-tion Crowell. Â“We have a dedicated and committed group of men who are working hard to prepare for the coming sea-son,Â” Richt said. Â“Our total focus will be directed toward the team and this effort.Â” Crowell was arrested at a vehicle checkpoint on the Georgia campus at around 2:20 a.m., accord-ing to Athens-Clarke Police Department spokeswoman Hilda Sorrow. Among the charges he faces are carry-ing a concealed weapon and possession of a weapon on school property. Crowell consented to a search after officers smelled marijuana in the vehicle. Police found a 9-millime-ter Luger pistol under the driverÂ’s seat with an altered serial number. Crowell was released on bond Friday afternoon. As a freshman in 2011, Crowell led Georgia with 850 yards rushing. Crowell, 19, came to UGA in 2011 as the top-rated run-ning back prospect in the country out of Carver High School in Columbus, Ga. He announced he would attend Georgia by pulling out a bulldog puppy at sign-ing day news conference. He went on to win Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year hon-ors from The Associated Press Crowell rushed for a career high 147 yards on 30 carries to help the Georgia beat Ole Miss 27-13 last season. He eclipsed the 100-yard rushing mark on four occasions, and scored six touchdowns. Despite his success, CrowellÂ’s freshman season also included setbacks on the field and off. He and two of his teammates were suspended for one game and missed GeorgiaÂ’s game against New Mexico State after they failed a drug test. In the SEC championship game, he struggled with 10 carries for 15 yards in a 42-10 loss to LSU. Richt said in March that he was impressed by CrowellÂ’s work ethic in the offseason. Richt said at that time the running back is Â“definitely growing up.Â” CrowellÂ’s exit will open the path for two highly rated newcomers to the team to play as freshmen.

Â— Austin Dillon lived up to the leg-end of the No. 3 car, then had his victory called into question Friday night. No one had regularly driven the No. 3 car since Dale EarnhardtÂ’s death on the track at the 2001 Daytona 500. On a warm night in the Bluegrass state, Dillon routed the field, only to have the car fail its post-race inspection. Dillon took the lead early and was on top for 192 of the 200 laps to win the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Kentucky Speedway. Â“I love running the 3,Â” Dillon said. Â“It pressures me every week to give 110 (percent).Â” Roughly an hour after the trip to victory lane, the No. 3 failed the inspection for being too low in the rear. NASCAR announced it would issue a ruling early next week. Reached at the garage, DillonÂ’s crew chief, Danny Stockman, wiped sweat from his forehead as he left a meeting with officials. Â“WeÂ’ve had an issue before. We addressed it in a meeting,Â” Stockman said. Â“It should have been addressed. ThatÂ’s the only comment IÂ’ve got.Â” A similar situation took place earlier this season at Iowa where a car also failed a postrace inspection. The crew chief was fined $10,000 and six points were subtracted from the team. The No. 3, of course, was driven to fame by Earnhardt, who raced for the Richard Childress team. Childress is DillonÂ’s grandfather and also his team owner. As Dillon was clinching the win, his grandfather said over the radio, Â“Dale would have been proud of that.Â” He added, Â“I couldnÂ’t be prouder as a grandfa-ther and a team owner. I know DaleÂ’s looking down smiling to see that 3 win tonight.Â” It was the first Nationwide victory for Dillon, a rookie who captured the Truck Series title a year ago. Â“It takes a little off your back when you get that first win,Â” Dillon said with a broad smile while wearing a white cowboy hat with his black Â— what else? Â— driv-ing suit.

By HANNAH O. BROWN email@example.com S&S Food Stores, a con venience store chain in north central Florida, has weathered an unpredict able economy with a realis tic attitude about business. The S&S empire began in 1961 when newlyweds Lester and Anne Scaff pur chased their first market on north U.S. 41 in Lake City. By the 1980s, the couple owned additional stores in surrounding counties and the S & S empire continued to grow thereafter. S&S now has 47 stores located in eight counties in north central Florida. The company has 367 employ ees. According to founder Lester Scaff, some employ ees have spent the past 40 years working for the com pany. Weve got a lot of good people and people make the difference, Lester Scaff said. S&S earned $232.2 mil lion dollars in revenue last year, a 10.7 percent increase from the year before. However, Scaff says S&S didnt see any increase in profit. Gasoline went up so high last year, I think thats what caused it, he said. Scaff said the price of gas always affects their rev enue, which can be difficult because costs are so unpre dictable. We never know from one year to the next. It fluc tuates every year, he said. Scaff said he does not completely understand how fuel is priced but he does know that is deter mined by three factors: Oil prices, supply and how it is traded. Theres nothing I can do about it, he said. You have to do the best you can with it. Despite economic unpredictability, Scaff says the business has stayed strong. Weve done excellent, he said. We really havent lost hardly anything through the recession. The recent Supreme Court decision support ing healthcare reform will likely present some changes to his business, Scaff said. We really dont know whats coming, but we know we are going to be big time affected, he said. Scaff said he remembers when minimum wage was first enforced at 75 cents an hour. I thought, how am I going to handle that? he said. But Scaff said hed never fight minimum wage work ers getting a raise. The business will just have to adjust, he said. Its one crisis after another, you might say, in business, he said. Theres always problems that come up. You have to address them and deal with them. Scaff said not only his customers, but all custom ers, are in the same boat. If costs increase, thats the cost they will have to endure. S&S recently opened their first Wendys at an S&S location in Ellisville. Scaff said three more Wendys will eventually be established, but it may be slow going because of the added labor costs of running the fast-food res taurants. As far as growing a busi ness, its kind of difficult, Scaff said. Ive just been blessed or I would not have been suc cessful. 1CBIZ FRONT Lake City Reporter 1CBIZ FRONT Week of July1 July 7, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section C Columbia, Inc.

Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and youÂ’ll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! But a falling market isnÂ’t necessarily bad. It can present great opportunities, when stock in many great companies is suddenly on sale. If youÂ’re 20 years away from retirement, for example, how much does it really matter that your hold-ings fell 2 percent this week? What really matters is how theyÂ’re valued in 20 years, or whenever you want to sell them. The prices at which you buy and sell are the only ones that give you a profit or loss. As superinvestor Warren Buffett has explained, if youÂ’re going to be buying more shares of stocks in the coming years, you should be happy to see falling prices. Money you expect to need in the coming few years, though, should not be in stocks, where anything can happen in the short term. Investors err when they succumb to fear or greed. They buy or hold on to overvalued stocks out of greed, and they sell in a panic when stocks fall. DonÂ’t do that. Expect healthy stocks to fall sometimes and to recover eventually. The stock market may be volatile, but over long periods, its trend has been up. K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ A Hefty Dividend to ConsiderIf youÂ’re in the market for a solid dividend payer, consider Annaly Capital Management (NYSE: NLY), which recently sported a yield of 13 percent. Annaly is a mortgage REIT (real estate investment trust), profiting from the difference between the rate at which it borrows, which is currently near a record low, and the rate at which it re-lends. Like its peers, which also invest in mortgages, it enhances its returns by working with borrowed money. That carries some risk, since rapidly rising interest rates can throw a wrench into the process. One attractive feature of Annaly is that itÂ’s been reducing its debt. That can dampen the dividend it pays its shareholders, but probably not by a lot. The companyÂ’s free cash flow generation has been strong. Annaly and its peers may be less compelling when interest rates rise, but the Federal Reserve has said that it expects to keep rates low at least through most of 2014. Thus, a few more years of double-digit dividend yields seem quite possible, though theyÂ’re far from guaranteed. Annaly doesnÂ’t fit the typical mold of dividend stocks, as it doesnÂ’t have set payouts. They can rise and fall from quarter to quar-ter. Still, it does have a history of outperforming inflation and appears to be a safer mortgage REIT than most of its peers.

By STEVE KARNOWSKIAssociated PressMINNEAPOLIS Â— Attorney Bob Burns already gets a lot of information from his smartphone, but he welcomes the prospect of getting a little more Â— free warnings about life-threatening weather from a sophisticated new govern-ment system. Beginning Thursday, the new Wireless Emergency Alerts system gives the National Weather Service a new way to warn Americans about menacing weather, even if they are nowhere near a television, radio or storm sirens. It sends blanket warnings to mobile devices in the path of a dan-gerous storm. As he sat at a sidewalk cafe in downtown Minneapolis, working on both an iPhone and an iPad, Burns said he was open to getting the unsolic-ited messages. Â“I spend enough time reading junk on my phone thatÂ’s of no real benefit to me. I might as well read something useful,Â” the Minnetonka man said. Â“ItÂ’s putting technology to use for the public good.Â” Thursday was a quiet day for severe weather nation-wide, so officials did not expect to send any imme-diate alerts, said Greg Carbin, the warning coordi-nation meteorologist at the national Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla. But in the future, the system will be used to notify people about approaching tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards and other threats. When a warning is issued for a specific county, a text-like message of no more than 90 characters will pop up automatically on the screens of newer smartphones in that area Â— primarily Android and Windows Phone devices Â— causing them to sound a special tone and vibrate. Users do not have to sign up for the service or pay for the message. And people who prefer not to get the warnings can opt out of the system. Â“These alerts will make sure people are aware of any impending danger and provide them with the information needed so they can be safe until the threat is over,Â” said Amy Storey, spokeswoman for CTIA-The Wireless Association, an industry trade group that helped set up the sys-tem. The system does not yet work with all smartphones or in all areas. It is part of a broader alert network the Federal Emergency Management Agency launched in April that can also send public-safety warnings from the presi-dent and participating state and local governments. But the weather service esti-mates that more than 90 percent of the messages will be about storms. The weather warnings will include tornadoes, hurricanes, typhoons, tsunamis, flash floods, extreme winds, blizzards and ice and dust storms. Designers were concerned about overloading users with too much information, so they deliberately limited the messages to warnings, not watches, and exclud-ed severe thunderstorm warnings, weather ser-vice spokeswoman Susan Buchanan said. Wireless carriers serving almost 97 percent of U.S. subscribers have agreed to participate, including the biggest nationwide companies Â— AT&T Inc., Verizon Wireless, Sprint Nextel Corp. and T-Mobile USA. Each of the four offers at least some phones capable of receiving emergency alerts, with more on the way. Sprint, Verizon and TMobile say they offer the service nationwide. AT&T offers it only in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Portland, Ore., at the moment. Spokesman Michael Balmoris said the company will add addition-al markets over time but declined to say which ones or when. Government officials donÂ’t have a good handle on exactly how many capable devices are already in use, but Damon Penn, assistant administrator for national continuity programs at FEMA, said the number is probably in the millions. He said smartphone users should check with their carriers to find out whether service is available and if their device is able to use it. He said many people own phones equipped to get the new alerts but donÂ’t know it yet. By JEFF BAENENAssociated PressKASOTA, Minn. Â— For anyone who ever has been stuck in traffic, itÂ’s a tempt-ing fantasy: If only you were driving a tank and could roll over everything in your path. Some drivers are now flocking to an out-of-the-way spot in southern Minnesota to turn that vision into metal-crunching reality. A business named Drive-a-Tank offers driv-ers the chance to pilot surplus military tanks and other armored vehicles around an old limestone quarry and smash junk cars like an action movie hero. The ride is loud, grinding, hot and dirty Â— ideal for satisfying oneÂ’s inner Rambo. Â“It was awesome. I mean, controlling that machine, itÂ’s incredible,Â” said Jacob Ostling, 19, of New Canaan, Conn., among the customers who took a turn under the tur-ret on a recent Saturday and flattened a car in an explosion of glass. Owner Tony Borglum, a construction and heavy equipment contractor, opened the tank park three years ago after seeing similar attractions during a visit to England. He said he knew it would fit nicely into American culture Â— a more visceral version of what millions of guys are doing in video games any-way. He began buying up old Cold War-era surplus and now has 11 armored vehicles available for use on a 20-acre site near this town 50 miles southwest of Minneapolis. Customers spend hours churning up and down a hilly, wooded course, getting a firsthand sense of what armored warfare might be like. Â“ItÂ’s not as glorious as it looks like on TV,Â” said Borglum, a short-haired 25-year-old who wore cam-ouflage pants, a tan polo shirt and boots at the ses-sion. But it satisfies the curiosity of those who have watched tanks in war mov-ies. Â“It was very realistic,Â” agreed Brad Walker, of Amboy, Ind., who brought his 21-year-old son, Nick, for an outing before the young man got married. Â“It kind of gives you an idea exactly how hard that job is.Â” Nick Walker, who squeezed his 5-foot-11, 230-pound frame into the cramped compart-ment, added, Â“ItÂ’s not a big personÂ’s job.Â” Drivers sit in the small space in front between the tracks and navigate by look-ing out the hatch. Â“ItÂ’s very noisy. Lot of vibration. Kind of warm but not uncomfort-able. Took a little getting used to the maneuverabil-ity, but itÂ’s just ... a blast,Â” said customer Marvin Bourne. A basic package that includes driving a tank and shooting a machine gun costs $399, with more expensive options for driving several mod-els and shooting other weapons such as assault rifles. Drivers who want to smash a car pay an additional $549; for about $3,500, a customer can drive a tank through a trailer house. Learning to control the lumbering machine with its two steering sticks takes only a few min-utes. It was Â“easier than I expected,Â” and Â“an awesome Christmas present,Â” said Bourne, 58, an insur-ance man from Richmond, Va., who brought his wife, Karen, along as passenger. He was among several visi-tors who had a gotten a tank ride as a gift for a spe-cial occasion. Borglum said his tank park wasnÂ’t the first in the United States but he knows of no others still operating. Event coordinator Kessa Baedke said more than 600 packages have been sold this year. One of the attractions on display is a British Chieftain Mark 11 fea-tured in the 2002 Matthew McConaughey dragon invasion movie Â“Reign of Fire.Â” Another Chieftain nicknamed Larry, weigh-ing 60 tons and with a top speed of 30 mph, makes short work of any obstacle in its path. Â“To have that much weight on just two brake handles, itÂ’s awesome,Â” said Ostling after the tank rolled over a car and rained glass around his head. The car Â“was like a tin can,Â” he said.

LIFE Sunday, July 1, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D R ecently Genie had lunch with two Macclenny friends, San Beckum and Dr. Sydney Ferriera at the Rising Star Karaoke Caf. Located in Macclenny it is on Hgw. 90 and Lowder St. itÂ’s an easy ride from Lake City and offers a change of scenery and a new enter-tainment choice. The Rising Star, opened in December by owners Gary and Charlotte Cook, has been a success since the doors opened. Since IÂ’m not a Karaoke singer, I was glad that that is reserved for evenings. The owners call it an Entertaining Italian Grill. ItÂ’s that and more. The dcor has Italian art on one end and rock & roll memo-rabilia on the other. There is a game room with a pool table and game machines and there are the usual tv on the wall. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful and you feel welcome when you walk in the door. Gary is currently the Culinary Arts teacher at the Baker County High School. The menu is primarily Italian including assorted paninis, pastas, salads, soups and calzones. We settled on starting with the onion and the broccoli cheese soups. Both served in a cup with a handle were hot, tasty and well seasoned. Syd and San were disappointed that the potato soup wasnÂ’t available as that is their favorite. I will have to try that anoth-er trip. Syd had fettuccini Alfredo ($8.75) which was attractively served on a small platter with fettuc-cini noodles topped with delicious white chicken breast slices and topped with an Alfredo sauce. A very generous serving requiring a to-go box. San tried the baked lasagna ($9.25) which came with a side salad. The salad had fresh greens, tomato, lots of black olives and your choice of dressing. Salad dressings are bottled but the chef is working on creating their own dress-ings, so stayed tuned. The lasagna was a nice lunch size serving with a homemade sauce that had a pronounced taste of fresh herbs. It was very good but I think it could have used a little more sauce on top. I ordered the chicken curry Panini ($6.75). The chicken salad was made with curried chicken, mayo, mustard, onions, grapes and dill. The focaccia bread made a large sandwich which was toasted and pressed. It was delicious although you could barely taste the Taste Buddies visit Karaoke Caf Story ideas?ContactRobert BridgesEditor754firstname.lastname@example.org Lake City Reporter1DLIFE LAURA HAMPSON /Lake City ReporterMajor Roy L. Brown helps Austin Green, 11, with his fishi ng lure Thursday at Lake Montgomery in Lake City. Brown retired Thursday after 31 y ears as a wildlife officer with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comAfter 31 years protecting FloridaÂ’s fish and wildlife, Major Roy BrownÂ’s goal is to hunt every opening day this year. Brown, of Lake City, retired Thursday as North Central Region Commander for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Opening days are often the busiest for wildlife officers so for many years he wasnÂ’t able to hunt then, said Brown, 55. With retirement, he plans to spend time with family, including his four grand-children, enjoying the outdoors and writing short stories about his life and career. Brown began his career in 1981 as a wildlife offi-cer in Dixie County. He worked in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Hamilton and Suwannee counties before being promoted to major over 17 area counties and 155 wildlife officers. Working out of the Lake City regional office, Brown was one of six regional commanders in the state. Â“As a child this is what I wanted to do,Â” he said. Brown has received an Award of Valor with Life Saving from the Florida Highway Patrol for his assistance in lifting an overturned SUV off of an 8-year-old girl who was trapped and not breathing. He is a two-time recipient of Officer of the Year dur-ing his career and FWC has recognized him for Exceptional Performance several times. Officers have the mission of protecting the stateÂ’s fish and wildlife resources and have full state law enforcement authority, he said. That job often requires specialized equipment and knowledge to protect people and wild-life, Brown said. Â“We are uniquely qualified to do this,Â” he said. Brown has experienced several dangerous situa-tions during his career. Once in Hillborough County he was in an orange grove and came across an escaped pris-oner. Brown said he had just enough time to call for backup when the prisoner attacked him with a knife and the two fought for sev-eral minutes until another officer arrived. Â“It just kind of comes with the job,Â” he said. Brown said he felt a special sense of accomplish-ment after search and res-cue missions, often when people ended up lost in the wilderness. Â“When they see you, itÂ’s a great reunion,Â” he said. Encouraging young peopleÂ’s appreciation of nature is another aspect of the job Brown enjoyed. Three decades serving natural Florida FWC commander looks back on career, retirement OFFICER continued on 2D By TAMARA LUSHAssociated PressLONGBOAT KEYÂ— At a time when overcooked spaghetti and Chef Boyardee defined Italian food for most Americans, Marcella Hazan dared them to try a bite of some-thing new. That was roughly 40 years ago. Since then, her many cookbooks, classes and television shows have made classic Italian cook-ing Â— this time the real deal Â— as ubiquitous in the U.S. as burgers and pizza. And yet Hazan Â— considered to have done for Italian cooking what Julia Child did for French Â— isnÂ’t done yet. Though 88, officially retired and wrestling with back and other health issues, Hazan continues to teach. This time it isnÂ’t in a refurbished 16th century palazzo in Venice. ItÂ’s on Facebook. Â“Friends: To have met here with you to chat and sometimes amicably to argue about cooking, a subject that arouses your feelings as it does mine, to have had this opportunity for conversation, has been one of the keenest plea-sures of my careerÂ’s clos-ing years,Â” she wrote in a post on May 30. Â“I hope to enjoy it yet a little longer if I can overcome difficult moments such as those that have plagued me this spring.Â” Hazan has many ardent fans. And in the twilight of her career, they have found in her a willing and still feisty teacher happy to offer advice, challenge assumptions and continue to teach. Â“My first wild salmon of the season,Â” she wrote on June. 1. Â“I am very careful not to overcook sockeye, which may look under-done because of its glossy red color, but it is not.Â” Hazan and her husband, Victor, live near Sarasota in a condo with sweep-ing views of the Gulf of Mexico. SheÂ’s slower than she used to be, mostly because of the painful back, but that doesnÂ’t stop her from gliding around her kitchen. With her gray hair and Italian-accented English, Hazan looks and sounds like the quintessential grandma (which she is; she has two grandchildren who live nearby). But thereÂ’s still a gleam in her eye and an edge to her smile, especially when talking about cooking. And sheÂ’s still doing exactly what she set out to do six decades ago Â— cook for her husband every day. Recently, she sat down with The Associated Press to talk about her long career and thoughts on modern-day cooking. Hazan firmly believes that all families can and should spend time togeth-er cooking and eating. Â“The story that Â‘I donÂ’t have time to cook,Â’ I never believe it,Â” she said, shak-ing her head. Born Marcella Pollini in 1924 in the Emilia-Romana region of Italy, Hazan didnÂ’t intend to be a cook-ing teacher or cookbook author. She graduated from the University of Ferrara with a doctorate in natural sciences and biol-ogy and taught those sub-jects as a young woman. But then she met Victor Hazan, who was born in Italy but raised in New York. The couple married in 1955 and moved to the U.S. It was then that she realized she needed to feed her husband, who longed for the flavors of Italy. Hazan had never cooked, though she had spent her life in her moth-erÂ’s and grandmotherÂ’s kitchens. To get her through those first few years she painstakingly copied her motherÂ’s recipes, collect-ing them in a clipped-together folio she held on to for decades. Cooking intrigued the young biologist; flavor combinations and cooking times seemed to be like a scientific experiment. In the early 1960s, she went to take a Chinese cooking class, but the instructor cancelled. The other stu-dents collectively decided that Hazan should instead teach them how to cook Italian food. With the encouragement of her husband, Hazan began offering cooking classes from their New York City apartment. Those lessons blossomed into a lifelong business of teaching. She and Victor opened a cooking school in Bologna, then in Venice. But it was her 1973 cook-book, Â“The Classic Italian Cookbook,Â” that led some to draw comparisons between Hazan and anoth-er larger-than-life cook-book author: Julia Child. The two women were longtime friends. Â“Julia was very quick, very fast,Â” recalled Hazan. Â“I remember one time she just browned a few sausag-es and that was our meal.Â” The HazansÂ’ one son, Giuliano, shared the familyÂ’s love of food and also became a cookbook author. He and his wife, Lael Â— who live in nearby Sarasota Â— run a cook-ing school in Verona and At 88, legend finds new audience online ASSOCIATED PRESSThis image taken on May 29 shows chef Marcella Hazan p osing in the kitchen of her Longboat Key home.

Cabot Creamery Cooperative is losing a little Vermont on its labels, and that has gov ernment officials worried that Vermont is losing a little publicity. The farmer-owned cooperative, which makes cheese, butter and other dairy products, is phas ing out labels that refer ence the states name in the logo because not all its products are wholly Vermont-made. One old logo has Cabot stamped over a green outline of the state, with the word Vermont next to it. Another just has the shape of Vermont under the word Cabot. The new one has a green barn and the words Owned by our Farm Families in New York & New England. Some state officials are worried about the change, saying Cabots widespread distribution helps promote other Vermont products and tourism, and are con sidering changing state law to let Cabot keep the Vermont reference in its logo. For this Vermont boy, Cabot is Vermont and Vermont is Cabot, Gov. Peter Shumlin said in an interview Tuesday. The state zealously guards the reputation of its famous foods. It even has a maple specialist who checks on the states most famous product to make sure it tastes right, has the correct sugar con centration and is properly graded. While Cabot has been synonymous with Vermont since the cooperative was founded in 1919, the state also has a tough truth-inlabeling law. Take a food product like butter. If a company wants to use the states name to help sell butter, 75 percent of the cream must be from Vermont and 75 percent of the butter itself must be made in the state. If not, a company wanting to use the Vermont name on its logo has to disclose on the front of its package that its actually an out-of-state product. Assistant Attorney General Elliot Burg, head of his offices consumer protection division, said the butter issue came to his attention during negoti ations leading to an agree ment last year with Cabot on a separate matter: the labeling of products as not coming from cows treated with synthetic growth hor mone. Cabots butter is made in West Springfield, Mass., from cream sourced from around New England, said Roberta MacDonald, Cabots vice president for marketing. But Vermont references were all over the packag ing, Burg said. Besides having Vermont in its logo, Cabot was using packaging space to tout Vermont woodwork ers and their products. A reasonable consumer would have concluded that the butter came from Vermont, Burg said. MacDonald said Cabot agreed with Burgs con cern and speeded up intro ducing the new logo on its butter. Cabots cheeses and other products continue to be made in Vermont, but the milk used in making them comes from farms around northern New England and New York. MacDonald said the company is switching over to the new packaging with out Vermont on the logo as it runs out of its existing packaging stocks. Shumlin said he was working on a compromise proposal to be unveiled in the coming days that might lead us to a solution that would preserve the integrity of the Vermont brand and enable Vermont companies like Cabot to spread the Vermont love. Richard Stammer, CEO of Agri-Mark Inc., a Northeast dairy coopera tive that includes Cabot, said that even if the state changes its truth-in-label ing law, Cabot will not change its logo back. Thats our brand. ... Its a serious thing, he said. But Stammer said the word Vermont will still show up elsewhere on Cabots packaging. In the case of cheddar cheese and other Vermont-made products, Vermont will still be on our labels, its just not going to be on our logo. Aside from the logo, Stammer said, nothing else is changing. Weve still got our roots in Vermont. Weve got about 600 employees and a $100 million investment in Vermont. Were very com mitted to Vermont. Kowtowing to rules, Cabot drops Vermont logo ASSOCIATED PRESS The new Cabot logo is displayed on a package of butter in Montpelier, Vt. Cabot Creamery Cooperative, maker of cheese, butter and other dairy products, is phasing out labels with the state on the logo. A green outline of the state is being dropped in favor of a green barn and the words Owned by our Farm Families in New York & New England. In the old days, there were only about 200 game officers statewide, he said. Competition to become a FWC officer was strong then and continues to be, he said. With the boats, atvs and trucks, young men especially are drawn to the job, he said. It has all the toys, Brown said. They dont see the mosquitos eating on you all night long, he said. However being out in the field makes up for the paperwork and sun expo sure, he said. Brown said those inter esting in becoming a FWC officer should take as many science classes as they can, get at least a twoyear degree in criminal justice and be in excellent physical condition. What attracted me to this job is I like to hunt and fish, he said. I just love being around it, Brown said. Brown said he is happy to now have time to delve into other interest and spend with his wife Betty, leaving the job is bitter sweet. Its who I am. Its my identity, Brown said. OFFICER: Job has dangers, rewards Continued From Page 1D A little over a year ago, the Lake DeSoto Farmers Market opened in downtown Lake City along the banks of Lake DeSoto in Wilson Park. It is the vision of city leaders, that the area is the future site of a multitude of community events in Lake City. Its a beautiful place, peaceful and natural and the perfect home for local farmers, bakers and craft ers to share their bounty with residents and visitors. But, its more than that. As home for the farmers market it provides access to healthy locally grown food that you just cant get in many other places. It provides an opportunity for a relationship with your food with the grower, the history of where it was grown, how it was grown and what you can do with this food can be shared. Recipes from the growers kitchens and their favorite way to prepare or how they preserve it for eating in the off-season can be handed down to you directly. Farmers markets are not just a place where you can buy food. They transform open spaces into vibrant hubs of activity. You can find neighbors and friends, and make new ones. You can enjoy the relationship between nature and your food. You can explore local food with the grower as your tour guide.

The folks at Hi-Noon Petroleum in Montana have a new way to turn a dinosaur into gasoline. Theyre offering a $250 gas card for information leading to the safe return of Dino, a 12-foot-long fiberglass Sinclair dinosaur that disappeared June 21 from the Crossroads Travel Center west of Missoula. We just wonder what happened to him, HiNoon marketing manager Earl Allen said Friday. Its a little odd for him to just walk away. The 6-foot tall green dinosaur sat on a hill overlooking Interstate 90 for at least five years, Allen said, with occasional appearances in University of Montana Homecoming parades. That was his home for a number of years, Allen said. Allen said taking the prehistoric icon would have been a bit of a proj ect. Its not like you can just throw him in the back of a pickup, he said. Anyone with information on Dinos whereabouts is asked to call Hi-Noon. Associated Press Reward offered for Montana truck stop dinosaur

They are being honored with a drop-in reception hosted by their children on July 14 from 2 p.m.-.4 p.m. at Berea Baptist Church Fellowship Hall. The church is located just off of I-75 on Highway 47 South in Lake City Florida. Fritz is the son of the late George and Rossie Wood Fountain and grew up in Lake City. He graduated from Columbia High School and was ordained as a min-ister at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church. He then went on to Stetson University for his Bachelors, received his masters, and later received his Doctorate from Luther Rice Seminary.

In January of this year Fritz retired as the Director of Missions for Suwannee Baptist Association. Marie is the daughter of the late John and Mary Hudson Martin of Fort White. She graduated from Fort White High School and later went to work at the Florida Department of Transportation. She was a stay at home mother and homemaker before returning to Lake City Community College to receive her Associates Degree. She worked many years for the Dixie County School Board and Hospice. She has been a wonderful help-meet to Fritz in the ministry. The couple met at a Fort White High School Basketball game where Marie, who had graduated the prior year, was with her two sisters and Fritz was coach-ing the game. They married on July 22, 1962 at Elim Baptist Church in Fort White, Florida with the Reverend Grey performing the ceremony.

Giuliano also makes frequent visits to NBCÂ’s Â“TodayÂ” show, where he teaches his motherÂ’s recipes. Marcella and Victor Hazan retired to their condo on Longboat Key in the late 1990s. There, the couple renovated the kitchen, which overlooked the GulfÂ’s lan-guid blue waters. Her cooking space is small by American standards, but itÂ’s clear that a professional works within. She still cooks lunch and dinner daily, and when asked if her husband of 57 years sometimes cooks for her, Hazan chuckles. Because sheÂ’s suffered some health problems lately, she said, he does get in her kitchen. Â“I try to tell him what to do,Â” she said, grinning. Â“And itÂ’s not easy.Â” There is little in her freezer Â— some blood orange gelato and a bottle of vodka, along with some ice Â— and the fridge is stuffed with an assortment of goods, including a large papaya. Despite living mostly in the United States for decades, Hazan and her husband still adhere to Italian traditions: they sit at the dining room table to eat a large lunch each day and follow meals with fruit, not cakes, cookies or other confections. And Hazan would like to have a word with all of you would-be Italian chefs in America: donÂ’t undercook the vegetables and donÂ’t overcook the garlic. And please, please, Hazan begs: keep Italian food simple. Â“ItÂ’s the same importance of what you keep out as what you keep in,Â” said Hazan. curry. If you are a curry lover you might be dis-appointed in that. Even without, it was one to be ordered again. The roast beef with arugula and the applewood bacon with smoked turkey Paninis sounded delicious and so did the desserts. So, we ordered the Cannoli ($2.99) and the tiramisu ($3.19). The cannoli had a crisp shell filled with a light ricotta cheese mixed with chocolate chips, the ends were then dipped in chocolate and powdered sugar was sprinkled on top. The tiramisu had lay-ers of rum soaked cake, a creamy whipped custard and a topping of choco-late ganache. Very rich and tasty. Both of these are classic Italian dessert favorites and they are both worthy of repeating on another visit.

BUDDIES: Tasty food and fun Continued From Page 1D By MELISSA RAYWORTHFor The Associated PressFrom Memorial Day and Independence Day on through Labor Day, Americans are staging celebrations of patriotism. At summer ballgames and community events, we catch sight of billowing flags and take in the hum of the national anthem. At the height of summer, many of us look for ways to bring a bit of patriotic style or military flair into our homes. But how do you add a dash of Americana into your decor without giving your home the feel of a bed-and-breakfast in colonial Williamsburg? Interior designer Mallory Mathison says ramping up your in-house display of patriotism can be done in a chic, 21st-cen-tury way. Â“You can use that red, white and blue palette in ways that feel fresh and clean,Â” she says. Â“And itÂ’s not the obvious, patriotic, Uncle Sam sort of thing.Â” But do tread carefully, says designer Lee Kleinhelter, owner of the Atlanta design store Pieces. Â“You can easily overdo it,Â” she says. So as you make decorating choices, Â“ask yourself whether itÂ’s something you can easily live with every day.Â”FLYING THE FLAGÂ“Red, white and blue is classic,Â” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn, cre-ator of the design blog decordemon.com. But itÂ’s important to choose the right shades and patterns. Â“To add touches of American style to my spaces, I often turn to textiles, particularly nauti-cal prints, or even Ralph Lauren plaids reminiscent of Hamptons-style homes or the preppy Ivy League styles of the Northeast,Â” Flynn says. Â“In a master bedroom for a bachelor, I used Navy blue as the roomÂ’s base color, then added contrast with red, white and blue nautical pil-lows.Â” Mathison loves doing rooms in blue and white, then bringing in just one dash of red through an accessory, lamp or even a vase of red flowers. Or sheÂ’ll add cotton rugs in shades of red, white and blue over a hardwood floor. Â“Another way I use red, white and blue is with the design of boysÂ’ rooms,Â” Flynn says. Â“To put my own twist on it, IÂ’ll use a geometric wall covering featuring different shades of blue and white, then use deep reds in accents to add contrast.Â” This works well for kids of any age, he says: Â“ItÂ’s something a boy can grow into, mixing it up over the years.Â” Kleinhelter agrees, but points out that less is often more: Â“DonÂ’t do the stars and the stripes,Â” she says. Â“Do just the stripes.Â”ONE BOLD PIECERather than threading patriotic style throughout a room, Kleinhelter says, Â“itÂ’s great to do more like a Pop-art take on it by going bold with just one piece.Â” She suggests selecting one photograph, maybe an American flag or a military ship, for instance. Then have it Â“enlarged maybe to the size of a wall in the space, and have that be the backdrop for the room.Â” To make this one striking item stand out even more, decorate the rest of the room in neutral colors, she says, Â“keeping every-thing really simple, with no clutter.Â”MELTING POT CHICMathison points out that American design, like American culture, is Â“sort of all-encompassing, because every different ethnicity is there.Â” So sometimes itÂ’s a mixture of Â“really diverse styles, periods of time and ethnici-tiesÂ” that come together in Â“what weÂ’ve interpreted as American style,Â” she says. You can mix these styles together, or zero in on one regional aspect of American style, Flynn says, such as Â“the classic traditional look of homes in the South, the preppy, coastal and casual feel of the Hamptons, and the super-sleek appeal of Eames-era, Mid-Century ModernismÂ” you might find in Palm Springs, Calif.KITCHENS, DININGÂ“A kitchen is a really great place to do red, white and blue and still have it looking chic,Â” says Mathison. Â“ItÂ’s a small investment to get some pretty blue and white Williams-Sonoma towels,Â” then mix in cookware and utensils in red and white. She also finds patriotic style perfect for outdoor entertaining. Â“Outdoors,Â” she says, you can Â“use a red and white table cloth with blue and white trans-ferware dishes.Â” Because entertaining items arenÂ’t on display year-round, you can have fun going a bit further with a particular theme.RUSTIC AMERICANA AND VINTAGE STYLEÂ“Classic farmhouse Ask a Designer: red, white, blue and beyond ASSOCIATED PRESSDesigner Brian Patrick Flynn, used red, white, and blue, i n a modern manner for a boyÂ’s room with graphic wallpaper in blue and white, accented with controlled bursts of fire engine red, as shown here in Los Angeles. style is another common way of bringing American style into a space, par-ticularly Americana,Â” says Flynn. Â“Rustic textures and reclaimed signage are a great way to warm up a space with American flair. Right now, IÂ’m work-ing on a space in Los Angeles thatÂ’s packed with rustic American style, as well as classic preppy touches: The walls are being covered in red and white gingham, the art is made from reclaimed U.S. license plates by a famous American artist named Aaron Foster, and the furniture is all Stickley style, the look youÂ’d find in an Arts and Crafts-style home.Â” Vintage folk art or pieces of military memorabilia passed down in your family can make striking design elements, says Kleinhelter. Just about any item might work. Â“One client of mine collected folk art pieces that were American flags,Â” Mathison says, Â“like an old wine crate painted like an American flag, and an old metal tin.Â”ORIGINAL ARTÂ“So many cities will have art fairs or art festivals,Â” Mathison says, Â“and a lot of times you can find local artists who do really neat interpretations of American flagsÂ” or other patriotic themes. Explore Etsy.com to find crafters and artists who have created items with a nod toward American his-tory and patriotism.

DEAR ABBY: What is considered good manners when you enter the home of a 20-something Northerner? IÂ’m a graduate student who recently moved from the South to the East Coast. When I visit the homes of my Northern friends, I feel they are being rude for not inviting me to come in and sit down. When visitors come to my place, I ask if I can take their coats, ask them to please sit and make them-selves comfortable and offer something to drink. It feels strange to enter someoneÂ’s living space and not hear these pleasantries. It also makes me feel as if IÂ’m imposing. If others arrive around the same time, I try to fol-low their cues, but I still find it uncomfortable to just plop down and make myself at home. Should I just get over it? -FISH OUT OF WATER DEAR FISH OUT OF WATER: If you have been invited to someoneÂ’s home, then you ARE welcome. That your visit doesnÂ’t begin with the customary rituals youÂ’re used to does not mean that your host is rude. Yes, you should Â“get over it.Â” Just go with the flow -in time you will adjust. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I donÂ’t have a car. I canÂ’t afford one at this time. For the last two years a friend has been doing me a favor by taking me grocery shopping every week. I can (and do) take the bus to the local grocery store, but it makes it easier to buy things in bulk with a car. We have dinner, go to an occasional movie and generally have a good time hanging out. I buy her din-ner sometimes as a thank-you for her great help. Recently, I got to meet a group of her friends. She introduced me to every single person by going over the whole history of my not having a car, and how she has taken me grocery shopping every week. All her friends began praising her for her kindness. I was upset and embarrassed that rather than introduce me as a friend she instead portrayed me as an object of her charity. I always thought she enjoyed our get-togethers. She used to rebuff any attempts on my part to make our shop-ping trips less frequent. -EMBARRASSED IN MICHIGAN DEAR EMBARRASSED: For now, my advice is to suck it up not for the sake of the friendship, but to do so for the sake of the transpor-tation unless you can find an alternative. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: When I was 15, my mother put away a large sum of money for me as a college fund. A few years later, she quit her job and began drinking and smoking heavily. I have now discovered that when she quit her job she used my college fund to pay for her alcohol and cigarettes. Am I wrong to be upset? -DISAPPOINTED SON IN FORT GRATIOT, MICH. DEAR DISAPPOINTED SON: Of course youÂ’re not wrong to be upset. You wouldnÂ’t be human if you werenÂ’t. However, now you need to start researching ways to finance completing your education. A place to begin would be your near-est library -or online. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Completing a project or investing in your talents will open a door to greater prosperity. An opportunity to interact with someone you used to work with or have wanted to get to know better is evident. DonÂ’t be shy; make the first move. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Be prepared to give a full account of your plan. The less you leave to the imagination, the easier it will be for you to sway oth-ers to join you. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You will have a good sense of what you can get away with. Change will bring you in contact with people who can help you advance. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Avoid dealing with institutions. Do what you can to make improvements at home, or consider tak-ing on an unusual pastime that will teach you about different cultures. Valuable information will help you make an important choice. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Listen and learn. A change in the way you do things or in the people around you will prompt you to cre-ate demand for what you have to offer. Your ability to attract attention and inspire people to help you will lead to greater suc-cess. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Avoid gossip or anything else that could damage your reputation. Keeping a low profile or working in quiet solitude will bring the best results. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Make change happen. Traveling or taking part in something that sparks your imagination will also bring you in touch with people you enjoy being around. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Emotions and money donÂ’t mix. Keep a clear head, and avoid business deals with someone to whom you feel obligated. Equality must be main-tained for any relationship to work. The right change made now will enhance your happiness. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You will thrive with change. Consider what will make you happy, and head in that direction. Relationships and shared plans will also lead to less stress and lower overhead. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): You can learn a lot by watching what oth-ers do. Getting involved in an activity that mentally, physically or creatively inspires you will also help you make a decision regarding someone you are considering taking on as a partner. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Develop an idea until it fits your plans and lifestyle. You can turn a mix of business and plea-sure into a prosperous ven-ture. Love is in the stars, and forming a workable relationship with someone who has similar goals will help you succeed. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stick to the truth, even if it initially gets you into trouble.

An emotional situation will affect you professionally if it inter-feres with an important deadline. ++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Went easy on7 Went 90, say3RSVUHODWLYH"15 Nurse18 18th-century 5XVVLDQHPSHURU BBBKRPR0HGLDH[HFXWLYH Bob 0RELOHLQIR RUJDQL]HU (YHU\FKHPLFDO HOHPHQWKDVRQH 6WDONVLQDVRXS NLWFKHQ 7RXJKDFWLQ PHGLFDWLRQ *LQJHUFRRNLH(\HVDODFLRXVO\31 Bare0DUN:DKOEHUJ FRPHG\ 34 Load to bear3UHVHQWIURPELUWK$QWOHUHGDQLPDO*RJJOHG:RUULVRPH$UFWLF DQG$QWDUFWLFGHYHORSPHQWV BBBDQJODLV(QJOLVK horn) &RQJUDWXODWLRQV LQGLFDWRU +DYHORDQV6XH*UDIWRQVBBB IRU2XWODZ 3RSXODU&DULEEHDQ GHVWLQDWLRQLQIRUPDOO\ BBB VFLILILOP 6HDUFKZLWKDILQH WRRWKFRPE 5HDOP6RPPHOLHUVSLFN'UDSHU\DGRUQPHQWV%DFNXSSURFHGXUH&KRUXVOLQHOHDGHU"6HHLQJVRPHRQH VRFLDOO\ 67 Fan sound68 Cost&RQVHUYDWLRQLVWV catchphrase 6ORSH73 Pose)DOOVIRUPDUULHG ZRPHQ" 5RNHUDQG3DFLQR6XSHUPDUNHWGDWXP7RGDWH/LNHSXQVDPRQJDOO IRUPVRIKXPRULWVVDLG ,QWKHDUPVRI Morpheus 3ODFHBBB'LHJR86 Harangues$UPRIWKH86 &RQJ %LJWLSSOHU)LQDQFLDOSDJHDEEU6RPHQRGV$UERULVWV catchphrase *HPLQLDQG9LUJR ([FKDQJH SXUFKDVH$EEU 'XWFKH[SRUWV6LJKWRQDQ $ODVNDQFUXLVH $QLPDOSRXFK7UDQVQDWLRQDOFDVK)DUPPDFKLQHV1<&KRPHRI YDQ*RJK &DXVHSDQLFLQD theater, perhaps 6HOW]HUERWWOH FDSDFLW\ (QYLURQPHQWDOLVWV catchphrase 119 Hubbub1HLJKERURI6DVN%DQGZLWKD MXLFHGXSQDPH" 7RNHQLVK9DFDWLRQ DFTXLVLWLRQPD\EH (GLEOHURRWBBB+DVKDQD)OLUWDWLRXVORW 'RZQ 7LIIV7LQ\/LNHPXFKDYDQW JDUGHPXVLF &RPPHQW'DPSLHURIWKH 1%$ :HEVWHUVUHI7KHRORJLFDOLQVW3RWHQWLDOODQGILOO SROOXWDQWVIRUshort &DURSHQHU"3UHVLGHQWLDOPLGGOH QDPH 6LJQDWXUHSLHFH"12 Century, say1HUYRXVBBB$WPRVSKHULFZRUULHV15 Pasta shapes%UDLQVWRUP:DOORSV4XHVWLRQWRD PXVHXPYLVLWRU &DOLIRUQLDV6DQWD BBB0RXQWDLQV *LUO:LWKD+RRS DQG7KH8PEUHOODV 7KH/DVW'RQ author %DQNVWDWHPHQW DEEU )DUPIHPDOHVWK$PHULFDQYLFH SUHVLGHQW 3URFHVVHGPDWHULDO)UXLW\GULQNV*OREDOZDUPLQJ FDOFXODWLRQZKRVHVKDSHLVVXJJHVWHGE\FRQQHFWLQJVTXDUHVLQWKLVSX]]OHLQDFORVHGORRSEDVHGRQWKHDSSURSULDWHAcross .LQGRIVRFLHW\WKDW LVFDUHOHVVRIWKHHQYLURQPHQW eFODW$ODQLV 0RULVVHWWHKLW 2XWRIOLQH"%HDQSROH:RPDQZDUULRU1LEEOHIRU'REELQ -DFNZKRVDSLFN\ eater 0RQWUHDOVXEXUE)DUHZHOOV&OHDUHG6RXSVHUYHUV)ROORZHUV/LNHSUH 5XVVLD 6KRXOGHUPXVFOHV LQJ\PVSHDN /RYHSHUVRQLILHG $QWDJRQL]HBBBLQLJORR79 Droopy-eared pet7RONLHQIRUHVW creatures 6FUROOKROGHUV2QHIUHTXHQWO\ EHLQJZDYHGDW 87 Worry3DUWRIWKH6SDQLVK $UPDGD 6HPHVWHUHJ 3XWGRZQ0RVTXLWRIOHHW YHVVHO $QJRODVFDSLWDO/DZ2UGHU ILJXUH$EEU *UHHQYHKLFOH0DUYLQZKRVDQJ /HWV*HW,W2Q )ROORZXSOHWWHUV"101 Father, Son and +RO\6SLULW 6HRXOVRXO 2OGEUDQGZKRVH ORJRIHDWXUHGDtorch 9DUQLVKLQJUHGLHQW8QORDGV(QJOLVK FRQQHFWLRQV 8NUDLQLDQFLW\ IRUPHUO\ %XGKROGHU.LQJ.RQJ VWXGLR (GXFIDFLOLW\ 1R 5(/($6('$7( (/(0(172)68535,6(%\(OL]DEHWK&*RUVNL(GLWHG E\:LOO6KRUW] )RUDQ\WKUHHDQVZHUVFDOOIURPDWRXFKWRQHphone: 1-900-285-5656,HDFKPLQXWHRUZLWKDFUHGLWFDUG 1234567891011121314151617181920212223 242526 27 282930 313233343536 3738394041 4243444546 4748495051525354 55 56575859606162 6364656667686970 7172 737475 7677 7879808182 8384858687 888990919293 949596979899100101102103 104105106107108 109 110111112113 114115116117118119120121122123124125126 Southern hospitality lacking in gradÂ’s northern social circles NATOAPBYEASTSWAB AMAHBOROPOLLOITARA BUMBLERAPRUMBLEPUNCH OSIRISGETITLONDON BELOTIGNEOUSGIN THANWARBLEONDRUGS SHAHREGISERASEOPEDEAVETRADERGESTATES THERESTHERUBBLEAMOK HASCHINOSEAMEN GLOATEDKASHMIR CRAWASIAOONAOK FEESDROPPINGTROUBLE MALTSHOPOCEANOPEEN ISEEALOOPYPRESPLOT NOBLENONSENSESOME CDRORIENTSARNAZ DEPLOYPLATOOLDAGE QUEENMUMBLEHUBBLECAP EROSADORESECTOCRIP DONSNOTAXHUEKENO Answers to last SundayÂ’s Crossword.
