Â“ItÂ’s 5 oÂ’clock somewhere!Â” the bargoer declares cheerfully, referring to the commonly held belief that anytime is a good time for an adult beverage. But until recently, it was never 5 oÂ’clock in Live Oak or anywhere else in Suwannee County. In a state where Â“MargaritavilleÂ” Â— Jimmy BuffettÂ’s love song to beachside drinking Â— is practically FloridaÂ’s official anthem, it might come as a surprise that there are counties where residents canÂ’t buy beer, wine or liquor at all. For 65 years it had been illegal to sell liquor in Suwanee Â— it was just one of five dry counties in Florida. Last summer, residents voted 67 percent to 33 percent to allow liquor sales. The Brown Lantern was the first establishment to sell booze in Live Oak, the biggest city in Suwannee with about 7,000 residents. In May, the state issued the countyÂ’s first five licenses, which opens the door to allow someone to open the areaÂ’s first liquor store. FloridaÂ’s remaining dry counties Â— north-centralÂ’s Madison and Lafayette and the PanhandleÂ’s Liberty and Washington Â— might soon follow SuwanneeÂ’s lead. A vote to allow liquor sales will be held Aug. 28 in Madison, a county of about 19,000 residents. Â“ItÂ’s such an antiquated thought, being a dry county,Â” said Ted Ensminger, presi-dent of Madison Yes!, the group working to overturn the law. Madison County allows beer sales Â— but only if the beerÂ’s alcohol content is under 6.243 percent. Number of dry counties in Florida dwindling A leg upfor localbusinessownersFrom staff reportsIn an effort to expedite the recovery process for businesses dam-aged by Tropical Storm Debby, Gov. Rick Scott has activated FloridaÂ’s Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program. The program will provide emergency, short-term, interest-free loans to small businesses in Columbia and 35 other eligible counties to assist in rees-tablish-ing busi-ness dur-ing the interim period before other aid and insurance claims are processed. Â“Providing emergency financial assistance to businesses impacted by Tropical Storm Debby will aid them and their employees in get-ting back to work,Â” Scott said. Â“So many of FloridaÂ’s small businesses are the lifeblood of their communities, and this program will help assist them in returning to business as usual as soon as possible.Â” The Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program provides an expedient cash flow to businesses physically damaged by a disaster. The short-term loans help bridge the gap between the time damage is incurred and when a business secures other financial resources, including regular prof-its, payment of claims or longer-term loans. Scott has allocated up to $10 million from the stateÂ’s General Revenue fund for the program, of which $5 million will be made avail-able immediately. The additional $5 million will be used as necessary. Owners of small businesses with two to 100 employees in coun-ties impacted by Debby may apply for short-term loans for $1,000 to $25,000 from today through August 15. Loans are granted in terms of 90 or 180 days and are interest-free for that time period. To be eligible a business must have been established prior to June 25, 2012 and demonstrate physi-cal damage as a result of Tropical Storm Debby. To complete an application, or for more information on the program, visit www.floridadisasterloan.org. For questions call the Florida Small Business Development Center Network State Office at (850) 473-7800 or toll-free at (866) 737-7232. Interest-free state loans available in wake of flooding.

BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comT hough thunderstorms threatened to push the event to a drier day, the rain cleared up and the county fairgrounds filled with 25,000 county residents ready to celebrate AmericaÂ’s 236th birthday Wednesday. The event took place at the fairgrounds for the first time ever, but the crowd was not diminished because of the weather or change in location from downtown. Â“The weather turned out to be a little scary at first, but the humidity has gone away and itÂ’s just a beautiful evening here,Â” said Dennis Roberts, Third Circuit pub-lic defender. Roberts said the fairgrounds and the Lake DeSoto area both have their charms. Â“A lot of people like it down at the lake simply because thatÂ’s where itÂ’s always been but as Lake City grows they are going to have to leave that area anyway. I mean, itÂ’s crowded down there and the parking is good out here and all in all itÂ’s a nice arena and facility to have it in,Â” Roberts said. Bounce houses, food vendors, local politicians and community organizations gave out balloons, watermelon, paper fans, water bottles and other handouts.

Psalm 33:12 NIV Thought for Today MIAMI Miami city officials are urging residents not to add cel ebratory gunfire to their Fourth of July fireworks. Mayor Tomas Regalado, Miami Police Chief Manuel Orosa and other city officials held a news conference Tuesday to ask the public to abandon the unofficial tradition of firing guns into the air to cel ebrate the holiday. Its the same plea they made just before New Years Eve. When the bullets fall back to earth, they some times strike innocent bystanders. A 12-year-old boy watch ing fireworks outside his Ruskin home was critically injured when a bullet fall ing from the sky pierced his skull just after mid night on New Years Eve. His family on Wednesday told The Tampa Tribune that he still suffers from short-term memory loss. No arrests have been made in his shooting. Lifeguard fired for outside rescue HALLANDALE BEACH A South Florida life guard who rushed to save a drowning man has been fired for leaving the sec tion of the beach his com pany is paid to patrol. The Orlando-based company, Jeff Ellis and Associates, says Tomas Lopez broke a company rule and could have put beachgoers in his section of Hallandale Beach in jeopardy. We have liability issues and cant go out of the protected area, supervisor Susan Ellis told the Sun Sentinel What he did was his own decision. He knew the company rules and did what he thought he needed to do. A beachgoer rushed to Lopezs stand Monday afternoon asking for help. Lopez said he saw a man struggling in the water south of his post and ran to his aid. The man had been swimming along an unpro tected stretch of beach, Hallandale Beach officials said Tuesday. It was a long run, but someone needed my help. I wasnt going to say no, said Lopez, 21, of Davie. By the time Lopez arrived, several witnesses had pulled the drown ing man out of the water. Lopez said the man appeared to be semi-con scious and had water in his lungs. Lopez and an off-duty nurse helped the man until the citys paramedics arrived. After the rescue, Lopez said his boss asked him to fill out an incident report and then fired him for leav ing his assigned area. They didnt tell me in a bad way. It was more like they were sorry, but rules are rules, Lopez said. I couldnt believe what was happening. The rescue was per formed about 1,500 feet south of the protective boundaries set by Lopezs employer. The unprotected area has signs alerting beachgoers to swim at their own risk. Other lifeguards watched Lopezs area dur ing the rescue and were on the phone with 911 opera tors, the company said. The beach remained protected at all times, Ellis said. Lopez became a life guard four months ago after passing the compa nys requirements, which include swimming and physical exams. The job pays $8.25 an hour, the life guards said. Hallandale Beach began outsourcing its lifeguards in 2003 to save money. The city pays Jeff Ellis and Associates about $334,000 a year to provide four life guards and one supervisor at the beach year-round, said city spokesman Peter Dobens. The company also pro vides lifeguard services at the citys pools as part of the contract. Its contract expires this year. The man Lopez rushed to save, whose name was not released due to privacy laws, remained hospital ized Tuesday in intensive care, Dobens said. Two other lifeguards have quit in protest of Lopezs firing. One of them, Szilard Janko, told the newspaper, What was he supposed to do? Watch a man drown? FDLE clears retired police chief ST. AUGUSTINE The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has cleared a retired St. Augustine Beach police chief accused of taking firearms, a moun tain bike and a motorcycle. Richard Hedges already was cleared of ethics viola tions. The FDLE investiga tion focused on allegations made by Hedges patrol officers. Miami officials seek end to celebratory gunfire OXFORD, Miss. Five decades after his death, William Faulkner still draws literary pilgrims to his Mississippi hometown, the little postage stamp of native soil he made famous through his novels. Oxford inspired the fictional town of Jefferson that was a frequent set ting for his stories, and its commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Nobel laureates death Friday with several events that include a tag-team reading of his novel, The Reivers, begin ning about daybreak. Roughly 25,000 people a year visit Faulkners ante bellum home, Rowan Oak, which is now owned by the University of Mississippi. The authors meticulous handwriting appears on the walls of his downstairs office. Using pencil, he outlined events of his 1954 novel, A Fable. William Griffith, the Rowan Oak curator since 1999, said writing was a demon-driven task for Faulkner. Oxfords lure is similar to that of Key West, Fla., for fans of Ernest Hemingway and Salinas, Calif., for devo tees of John Steinbeck. Ive just always wanted to see this, Lisa McDanels of Rocky River, Ohio, said as she and her husband toured Faulkners home. You think, Oh, he walked here. The two-story Greek Revival home was built in 1848, and Faulkner bought it in 1930. It sits a mile from the town square, but feels isolated because its encircled by woods oaks, magnolias, cedars, dog woods and honeysuckle. Ole Miss bought Rowan Oak in 1972 from the Faulkners daughter, Jill. The house was renovated from 2001 to 2003, and central air conditioning was added. Mississippi Arts Commission director Malcolm White compares Faulkners posthumous fame to that of another north Mississippi native. Hes like Elvis, White said. Hes never been big ger than he is today. English professor Jay Watson, Kartiganers suc cessor as Faulkner special ist, politely disagrees with Whites assessment. Even during Faulkners lifetime, he was recognized as one of the most important literary figures of the 20th Century. But, Watson concedes Faulkner is more appreci ated in Oxford these days. Locals saw Faulkner as an oddball whod be so wrapped up in his own thoughts that hed often walk past people he knew without exchanging pleas antries. Faulkner went to Canada and trained as a Royal Air Force aviator, but never saw combat because World War I ended before he completed train ing. Nonetheless, Watson said, Faulkner would walk around Oxford in a flight officers uniform, complete with a cane and sometimes with a limp, and tell people hed been wounded in a plane crash, which wasnt true. Because he acted like a dandy, locals nicknamed him Count No-Count. The local newspaper, The Oxford Eagle, is publish ing essays this year from people who remember Faulkner. In one, J.W. Jay Mitchell, who grew up in Oxford, recalled being on the square with friends and making fun of the writer. Griffith said he came into the curators job with a respect for Faulkners prose but not as a super fan. When he was growing up in Illinois, an English teacher assigned him to read As I Lay Dying, and he pro tested with an essay called, As I Die Reading. I remember arguing, telling her that Id never thought about Mississippi and Im quite sure Ill never go to Mississippi, said Griffith, who has since reread the book several times. Griffith said when the teacher heard hed been hired at Rowan Oak, she told one of his relatives: I hope he knows karma is a real thing. Trailer for Cruises next film is good LOS ANGELES Tom Cruises personal life may be in upheaval, but its busi ness as usual for the studio promoting his next movie. Paramount Pictures has released the trailer for Cruises crime drama Jack Reacher, which opens Dec. 21. The trailer launched on Cruises 50th birthday with Tuesdays debut of The Amazing Spider-Man. The start of the movies marketing campaign coin cides with the breakup of Cruises marriage to Katie Holmes, who filed for divorce last week. The divorce has brought fresh scrutiny to Cruises ties to Scientology. His beliefs played a role in Paramounts split with the actor in 2006 over his discussion of his religion and his erratic behavior regarding his romance with Holmes. A life-sized statue of the late Nobel Prize laureate William Faulkner sits in front of the Oxford, Miss., City Hall in the shadow of the county courthouse. Oxford commemorates the 50th anniversary of the writers death July 6 with several events, including a tag-team reading of one of his novels, The Reivers, beginning about daybreak. ASSOCIATED PRESS

Folks in Suwannee and Madison say that allowing liquor will draw tourists and bring much needed jobs to the tiny counties. Both are rural and want to draw more visitors. To buy wine or liquor, people in Madison have to drive 30 miles; many go to Valdosta, Ga. to the north. It is 110 percent about jobs and the economy, Ensminger said. Madison County first banned alcohol in 1906 14 years before Prohibition, the national ban on alcohol sales that lasted 14 years and was widely violated. Opponents say theyre against liquor sales because of alcohols negative toll on society. You cannot repair the dam age from the slaughter on our highways. You cant put a dollar cost on a human life, said Bill Bledsoe, who lives in Santa Rosa County on the Panhandle and fought against allowing alcohol sales there in 2005. The measure passed by a vote of 29,353 to 21,507. Bledsoe said he has written letters to the editors of websites and newspapers in Madison County, detailing his views on the subject. Hes been a member of the Prohibition Party for 40 years and personally, is against drinking alcohol for religious rea sons reasons that others in Suwannee and Madison also give for opposing alcohol sales. The whole issue is has noth ing to do with freedoms, Bledsoe said. The issue is health and safety when it comes to alcohol. Im a Christian. Im a Bible-wav ing, flag-waving Christian. Based on that, I believe consuming alco holic beverages is a sin. In Suwannee, folks werent able to buy anything with alcohol in it for decades. Then, about 35 years, ago, residents could buy low-alcohol beer and wine but not real beer or liquor, said Brown. Residents voted whether to allow liquor sales three times over the years, and all three times it was defeated. Until 2011. Suwannee voters approved liquor sales by a 2-1 margin. People are tired of somebody else trying to control our lives, said Brown, referring to the countys formidable evangelical Christian pastors, some of whom opposed the measure. Were back to normality now. This is normal. Brown said hes thrilled that visitors who pull of Interstate 10 can now come into the town and have a glass of wine with din ner. Locals, too, seem to have embraced the change. We should have been wet a long time ago, sighed Bennie Thomas, who has been on the Live Oak City Council for 26 years. Now, at least, we wont have to drive 20 miles to get a drink. DRY: Counties Continued From Page 1A from the crowd. Mama Rosie, Little Carla and Papa Poncho sat side by side wearing elaborate patriotic costumes. They enjoy the people as much as the people enjoy them, owner John Weaver said. Weaver, who is from Live Oak, came up to Columbia County for the fireworks display. Weaver and his wife are origi nally from Seattle. Two of the dogs are trained as service dogs and assist his wife, who has a neurological disorder, by alerting her when conditions in her body change. He said the dogs have been recognized by news outlets in California. Brian Gollery from Church on the Way volunteered with other church members to supervise the bounce houses at the fair grounds. Gollery said the bounce hous es were deflated when it began raining and then blown back up when the skies cleared. The rain died off and then everybody just came, Gollery said. Gollery said this was his first time attending the Fourth of July celebration in Columbia County. I think for having to move it on the fly so quickly down here, they did a really good job, Gollery said. The kids are hav ing a blast. Dennille Decker, Executive Director with the Chamber of Commerce, said the Chamber will have to consider the option of using the fairgrounds for future Fourth of July celebrations. I was riding around talking to the different vendors and just people in the crowd and people were stopping me left and right saying, I love it here, its so good, we have so much more space, we can park, we can spread out, Decker said. We couldnt have really asked for a better night. President of the Chamber of Commerce Todd Wilson said the event turned out even better than anticipated. Its a good break for a lot of people. Its a time when they can step away from the challenges that the flooding has caused and the heartache and pain that so many in our county have experi enced in the past week, Wilson said. Wilson said the event could not have been so successful without help from Lake City officials as well as Columbia County Resources for providing the venue. Our community always rises to the challenge no matter what the situation and what chal lenges that our neighbors face, our community always steps up and answers the call, Wilson said. We have done that again and its good that people can come out here and have a good time and relax awhile and enjoy this time that so many of our sponsors have pulled together to provide.

Court not soft on crime ONE OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The National, State and local Chapter 772 of the Military Order of the Purple Heart thanks the Lake City Reporter and reporter Hannah O. Brown for being pres-ent and reporting on the event. It was a great event for all present, including Florida State Commander Richard Hunt who read the citiation and presented the Purple Heart Medal to Mr. David C. Hinson. Chapter 772 Commander Mike Nemesh read the citations and called upon individual members of the chap-ter to present to Mr. Hinson the Combat Infantry Badge, Korean Service Medal with 2 bronze ser-vice stars, United Nations Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal and the Republic of Korea War Service Medal. Chapter 772 MOPH also would like to thank the North Florida/ South Georgia VA Hospital for use of the auditorium and to Melanie Adams, Asst. director of Volunteer Services, for working with the chapter to arrange the event.Wilbur CorbittLake CityOur morals are lacking Would it be possible for all the media to focus on what is right and not what sells? I admit what sells catches the eye and spikes interest, but is it right? It would be nice if all professional sports figures, actors and politicians only showed good morals, dressed appropriately and refrain from using foul language. The media shows the immoral acts of figures we should look up to. Our children and teenagers learn what is inappropriate from TV, magazines and movies. Years ago it was family helping family members thru financial, ill-ness and other hardships. Family did what was moral and right to help family. The government thinks it is their job, but it has only helped destroy the family. Could it be if we were not politically correct and shown the easy way out we would work harder to keep marriage and families together. IÂ’ve read two parent families do better and statistically their children do better in life. Maybe if we went back to God (each in our own way) and hard work to fund the family our coun-try could get back on the track that made it the best country in the world.

BY E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org Q The New York Times Q Raleigh News and Observer OPINION Thursday, July 5, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AOPINION ANOTHER VIEW T he New York TimesÂ’ editorial writers -who reflect the opinions of the newspaperÂ’s pub-lisher and principle owner, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr., who hires and fires them -have their knickers in a knot over Sheldon Adelson. What has the Las Vegas hotel-and-casino tycoon done? The Times asserts he is spending his money Â“to advance his personal, ideological and financial agenda, which is wildly at odds with the nationÂ’s needs.Â” Full disclosure No. 1: I spent some of the best years of my life working for the Times, as a reporter, foreign correspondent and editor. Then, as now, some of the worldÂ’s finest journalists were employed by the Gray Lady. Such journalists do not draw conclu-sions and level charges except on the basis of solid evidence. By contrast, the TimesÂ’ editorial writ-ers no longer burden themselves with serious argumentation. They assert, they preach, they allege. I have heard Times reporters grumble about this -though not on the record. Full disclosure No. 2: I know Adelson and, on occasion, heÂ’s donated funds to the nonpartisan, nonprofit organization I head to support work on national secu-rity issues he views as critically important. But not for that reason do I defend his constitutional right to spend as much of his money as he likes to persuade his fellow Americans that his agenda is preferable to that favored by the Times. I would just as vehemently defend the free speech rights of George Soros, also a multibillionaire who spends lavishly to promote his agenda -an agenda with which the Times largely agrees and I do not. The Times has never criti-cized Soros as it has Adelson. In other words: I am championing a principle without exception; the Times -not so much. The Times promotes its policy preferences using ink it buys by the barrel. The Times sees that as part of its mission, and thatÂ’s correct. But private citizens are entitled to the same free speech rights as the media -unless, of course, one embraces as a seri-ous principle what IÂ’ve always assumed the great journalist A.J. Liebling intended as a quip: Â“Freedom of the press is guaran-teed only to those who own one.Â” The Times mentions only one substantive issue motivat-ing Adelson: He is writing Â“huge checks,Â” the Times alleges, because of his Â“disgust for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, supported by President Obama and most Israelis.Â” The Times adds that Adelson Â“considers a Palestinian state a stepping stone for the destruction of Israel and the Jewish people.Â” Why in the world might Adelson think that? Well, there is the fact that Hamas, which rules Gaza, has repeatedly proclaimed there can be Â“no solutionÂ” to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict Â“except through Jihad,Â” a religious war through which Â“Islam will obliter-ate (Israel) just as it obliterated others before it.Â” There is the fact that Mahmoud Abbas, leader of the Palestinian Authority and Fatah, has banned Â“all informal meetings between Israelis and PalestiniansÂ” because such dia-logue promotes Â“the culture of peaceÂ” and is designed to Â“nor-malizeÂ’ relations between Israelis and Palestinians.Â” There is the fact that Palestinian Authority official Adli Sadeq has written in the official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, that Israelis Â“fool themselves, assuming that Fatah accepts them and recognizes the right of their state to exist, and that it is Hamas alone that loathes them and does not recognize the right of this state to exist. They ignore the fact that this state, based on a fabricated (Zionist) enterprise, never had any shred of a right to exist. ...Â” The Times goes on to charge that AdelsonÂ’s Â“overriding inter-est is his own wallet.Â” Think about this: a man well into his seventh decade, worth billions, is concerned mainly that his taxes may go up? The Times neglects to inform readers that Adelson also donates huge amounts for medical research, education and other philanthropic pursuits. If his Â“overriding interestÂ” were his wallet, would he do that? The Times concludes by lamenting that we live in a time when Â“there are no legal or moral limitsÂ” preventing Adelson from helping Â“to elect Republicans who promise to keep his billions intact.Â” Under the moral and legal regime the Times would prefer, newspaper owners, politicians and government bureaucrats would decide how to spend AdelsonÂ’s money -and he would shut the hell up. I leave it for you to ponder whether that agenda would be in line with Â“the nationÂ’s needs.Â” Sheldon Adelson, New York Times and free speech Cliff May Q Clifford D. May is president of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, a policy institute focusing on terrorism. W ith a deci-sion that reaches into the prisons of 28 states, the U.S. Supreme Court has given some young murderers Â– those who were under 18 when they committed their crimes and who received a mandatory sen-tence of life without parole Â– a chance at eventual freedom. A far-off chance Â– not a guaran-tee. An opportunity to have the circumstances of their crimes, and their lives, considered by a court. Otherwise, the Supreme Court majority rightly ruled, these endless sentences for juveniles amount to cruel and unusual punishment, banned by the ConstitutionÂ’s Eighth Amendment. The 5-4 decision (along liberal-conservative lines, with Justice Anthony Kennedy sid-ing with the former camp) will force a change in many statesÂ’ sentencing laws. It will also require the state to set up a mechanism for reconsidering mandatory sentences of young murderers already in prison. Estimates are that two dozen or more are in this category. Juveniles Â– the plaintiffs in the cases before the court were 14 when they committed their crimes Â– are, unfortu-nately, as capable as adults of cruel, vicious murder. It was only to be expected, especially as the Supreme Court in 2005 outlawed the death penalty for young killers, that states would turn, by design or default, to mandatory sentences of life without parole. Mandatory meaning that in sentencing, judges and juries had no ability to consider the circumstances. In doing so, however, the states created a nightmare, even if less horrific than the crimes themselves. A 14-year-old is involved in the murder of a store clerk, as one of the two plaintiffs was. Sentenced to mandatory life in prison, he could be behind bars, what? Â– 60, 70, even 80 years. Nearly his entire life. That seemed wrong to the five-member court majority, and it is. Justice Elena Kagan wrote that Â“Mandatory life without parole for a juvenile precludes consideration of his chronological age and its hall-mark features, among them, immaturity, impetuosity and failure to appreciate risks and consequences.Â” In such a case, a judge with no choice Â“misses too much if he treats every child as an adult.Â” This is not going soft on crime. It doesnÂ’t touch manda-tory life sentences for adult murderers. It doesnÂ’t mean opening the prison gates Â– long sentences, even life without parole in the very worst cases, are still on the table for juveniles. But the ruling does make a common sense distinction that should be made when considering the rest of a 14(or 15-, 16or even 17-) year-oldÂ’s life. Looking at crime and at punishment, Americans might wonder. Bad people still commit unconscionable acts, ripping innocent lives apart. Prison Â– for all the noise about inmatesÂ’ lives of leisure Â– remains a harsh place. Yet weÂ’ve turned away from the physical punishments (brand-ing, the lash) common when the Constitution came into being. In a host of ways we are indeed evolving toward less cruel punishments, and if juveniles are among the benefi-ciaries of a change that takes greater care in their cases, thatÂ’s as it should be. A bout 2,000 juvenile offenders serving life sentences without parole can now seek new sentencing hearings to challenge their punish-ment. The Supreme Court ruled last week that it is unconstitu-tional to impose such a sentence on a juvenile convicted of murder without an individualized finding that considers the defendantÂ’s characteristics. But without capable lawyers to handle the hearings, the courtÂ’s humane ruling is unlikely to mat-ter for those juveniles serving a mandatory life sentence. The constitutional right to counsel in criminal trials does not apply to these sentencing reviews because the offenders have already been convicted. But they canÂ’t initiate a review if they cannot afford a lawyer. ThatÂ’s why the federal government and the 28 states affected need to provide them with lawyers as a moral right. And not just any lawyer. The court said juveniles have a less developed sense of responsibility and should not necessarily get the same punishment as adults. The hearings will require lawyers with training in psychology and human development to argue convincingly that an offenderÂ’s record supports reducing a life sentence Â— including what Justice Elena Kagan, in her majority opinion, called a juvenile offenderÂ’s Â“immaturity, reckless-ness, and impetuosityÂ” at the time of the crime. Almost one-quarter of those serving life sentences have been in prison for 21 years or longer. For them, Justice Kagan said, a state must provide Â“some meaningful opportunity to obtain release based on demonstrated maturity and rehabilitation.Â” In many cases, the offenderÂ’s young age and a history of being abused, for example, were so striking that judges said during sentencing that they were impos-ing mandatory life without parole because they had no choice. States should ensure that these offenders receive new hearings and the assistance of counsel.We need lawyers to administer ruling

Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2012 7A 7AHEALTH By MIKE STOBBE AP Medical Writer ATLANTA Overdose deaths from powerful painkillers have been surging at an alarm ing rate in the U.S., but heres a sliver of good news: The number blamed on methadone appears to have peaked. Still, methadone accounts for nearly one-third of prescription painkiller deaths, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday. Methadone, known mainly for treating heroin addiction, is also prescribed for pain. Health offi cials say most of the overdose deaths are people who take it for pain not heroin or drug addicts. After a sharp rise, the number and rate of methadone-related overdose deaths have fallen since 2007, the CDC report shows. Health officials describe the recent trend as closer to a level ing off than a reversal. But they also acknowledged it is a bit of good news in what has been a deteriorating situation. There arent a lot of problems that have gotten so much worse so quickly as prescription drug overdose has, said CDC direc tor Dr. Thomas Frieden. Overall, overdose deaths from powerful painkillers have increased by about four times over a decade, he said. Besides methadone, painkiller deaths pri marily involve Vicodin (hydroco done), OxyContin (oxycodone) and Opana (oxymorphone). Methadone is powerful drug that can be underestimated. It accounted for just 2 percent of painkiller prescriptions in 2009, but more than 30 percent of overdose deaths, according to the CDC. The drug mimics the effects of heroin and has been used to wean heroin users off of their addiction. Regular doses of methadone can reduce heroin cravings and withdrawal symp toms. Roughly 15 years ago, doctors started prescribing methadone more often for pain, partly because they were looking for an alternative to OxyContin, a nar cotic pain reliever that increas ingly was being tied to drug abuse and death. Methadone seemed like a safer alternative, said Dr. Len Paulozzi, the CDC studys lead author. Insurers also encouraged doctors to prescribe methadone because its cheaper than some other painkillers. But too much methadone can disrupt breathing, causing death. It also can cause a fatal irregular heartbeat, CDC officials say. The CDC researchers ana lyzed a decade of national prescription data, as well as drug-related death data from 13 states. The number of metha done-related deaths rose from fewer than 800 in 1999 to more than 5,500 in 2007, before slip ping the next two years to 4,900 and 4,700. Whats behind the change? The researchers note that the Food and Drug Administration in 2006 warned doctors to be more careful in prescribing the drug. And in 2008, methadone manufacturers voluntarily lim ited distribution of the largest doses of the drug to only hospi tals and to addiction treatment programs. Meanwhile, more states started or toughened up pro grams to monitor prescriptions for painkillers and look for signs of abuse. This all boiled down to more education of doctors about the dangers of prescribing metha done, said Bruce Goldberger, professor and director of toxicol ogy at the University of Florida College of Medicine. The word got out, said Goldberger, who has been study ing methadone overdose deaths for about a decade. Doctors may be swinging back to prescribing oxycodone and hydrocodone, he said. Despite all the warnings, the CDC researchers say too many prescriptions are still being written for pain, many by internists and family doctors, not pain specialists. And many of the prescriptions are for back pain and other conditions that methadone might not help in the long run, CDC officials said. By LINDSEY TANNER AP Medical Writer CHICAGO Even for infants born full-term, a lit tle more time in the womb may matter. The extra time results in more brain development, and a study suggests per haps better scores on aca demic tests, too. Full-term is generally between 37 weeks and 41 weeks; newborns born before 37 weeks are called premature and are known to face increased chances for health and develop mental problems. The children in the study were all full-term, and the vast majority did fine on third-grade math and reading tests. The differences were small, but the study found that more kids born at 37 or 38 weeks did poorly than did kids born even a week or two later. The researchers and other experts said the results suggest that the definition of prematurity should be reconsidered. The findings also raise questions about hastening childbirth by scheduling cesarean deliveries for convenience because women are tired of being pregnant or doctors are busy rather than for medical reasons, the researchers say. Women should at least proceed with caution before electing to have an earlier term birth, said lead author Dr. Kimberly Noble, an assistant pediat rics professor at Columbia University Medical Center. The study involved 128,000 New York City public school children and included a sizable number of kids from disadvantaged families. But the authors said similar results likely would be found in other children, too. Of the children born at 37 weeks, 2.3 percent had severely poor reading skills and 1.1 percent had at least moderate problems in math. That compares to 1.8 percent and 0.9 percent for the children born at 41 weeks. Children born at 38 weeks faced only slightly lower risks than those born at 37 weeks. Compared with 41-week ers, children born at 37 weeks faced a 33 percent increased chance of having severe reading difficulty in third grade, and a 19 percent greater chance of having moderate problems in math. These outcomes are critical and predict future academic achievement, said Naomi Breslau, a Michigan State University professor and sociologist. Her own research has linked lower IQs in 6year-olds born weighing the same as the average birth weights at 37 and 38 weeks gestation, com pared with those born heavier. The study was pub lished online Monday in Pediatrics. The research will cause quite a stir, said Dr. Judy Aschner, a pediatrics professor and neonatol ogy director at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. There are still a lot of babies who are being delivered more or less electively at 37 and 38 weeks, with people think ing, This is no big deal these babies are full-term. I think this is a big deal, Aschner said. She was not involved in the study. Aschner said no one is recommending trying to delay childbirth for women who go into labor at 37 weeks or 38 weeks. I dont want to panic moms whose babies come at 37 weeks, she said. But those elective early deliveries really need to stop. Some hospitals including Vanderbilt require obste tricians planning elective C-sections to complete a checklist and if appropri ate boxes arent checked, the operation cant be per formed, Aschner said. In the study, 15 percent of children were born in Csection operations but there was no information on how many of these were elec tive or medically necessary procedures. C-sections can cause birth complications that also increase chances for developmental delays. But the researchers took that into account, along with other risk factors including low birth weight, lack of prenatal care, smoking dur ing pregnancy and neigh borhood poverty all of which could contribute to academic difficulties. And they still found that birth at 37 weeks and 38 weeks was an additional risk. By MATTHEW PERRONE AP Health Writer WASHINGTON The Food and Drug Administration has approved the first over-thecounter HIV test, allowing Americans to test them selves for the virus that causes AIDS in the privacy of their homes. The OraQuick test detects the presence of HIV in saliva collected using a mouth swab. The test is designed to return a result within 20 to 40 minutes. Government officials estimate one-fifth, or about 240,000 people, of the 1.2 million HIV carriers in the U.S. are not aware they are infected. Testing is one of the chief means of slowing new infections, which have held steady at about 50,000 per year for two decades. FDA officials said the test is aimed at people who might not otherwise get tested. The availability of a home-use HIV test kit provides another option for individuals to get tested so that they can seek medical care, if appropriate, said Dr. Karen Midthun, director of the FDAs Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research. FDA stressed in its approval announcement that the test is not 100 percent accurate. A trial conducted by Orasure showed the home test only correctly detected HIV in those carrying the virus 92 percent of the time. That means that the test could miss one person for every 12 HIV-infected people who use the kit. The test was accurate 99 percent in ruling out HIV in patients not carry ing the virus. That means the test would incorrectly identify one patient as having HIV for every 5,000 HIV-negative people tested. The FDA previously approved several HIV test kits designed to be used at home, although those kits which usually require a blood sample must be sent to a laboratory to be developed. Based in Bethlehem, Pa., Orasure has marketed a version of OraQuick to doctors, nurses and other health care practitioners since 2002. When used by professionals, the test is shown to accurately identify both carriers and non-carriers 99 percent of the time. While its not clear why the test appears less accu rate in consumer trials, company researchers said they expected the tests specificity to drop when used by consumers versus professionals. Orasure plans to launch the test in October, sell ing it through retailers like Walgreens, CVS and Walmart, as well as online pharmacies. Whereas the test marketed to health professionals costs about $17.50, Orasure expects the consumer version to sell for more. The com pany is not announcing a price yet, but said it would be less than $60. CEO Doug Michels said the additional cost will help pay for a toll-free call center to provide counsel ing and medical referrals to test users. Each of the call-cen ter operators is bilingual in English and Spanish, theyve gone through 160 hours of training on HIV counseling and test ing, said Michels. So they are highly trained professionals and theyll be there to support the consumer. Shares of Orasure Technologies rose 59 cents, or 5 percent, to $12.09.

By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR Associated Press WASHINGTON Really? The Supreme Courts big health care deci sion means 30 million or more uninsured Americans are soon going to have cover age? Its far from that simple. The ruling does point a way forward for millions who cant get affordable coverage because theyve been sick, theyre self-employed or they are other wise shut out of the insurance plans that most Americans get in the workplace. But the path is clouded for millions more: the people on the bottom rungs of the economic ladder who are supposed to be reached by a major expansion of Medicaid. Thanks to last weeks ruling on President Barack Obamas overhaul, states can opt out of the expansion with out fear that Washington will shut down all their federal Medicaid financing. And if some states do opt out, a lot of their resi dents are going to have to find another way to get coverage, or continue to go without. Roughly 15 million uninsured are expected to get private insurance through new exchanges marketplaces to be set up in each state by 2014 that will be shored up by the individual coverage requirement that helps create a big pool of consumers. That mandate, vital to the law, was upheld by the court. Another 15 million people or so mainly adults with incomes just above the poverty line are expected to be reached through Medicaid, and the feder al government has generous subsidies to entice the states to come on board. Thats not to say all of them will; Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced over the weekend that his state will opt out, and others will probably follow. Its unclear how many of these lowincome people would be able to get pri vate health insurance in states that decide not to expand Medicaid. Even modest copayments may be a barrier for some of them. Were talking about individuals making less than $15,000 a year who do not qualify for Medicaid today and who cannot afford to pay for private health insurance, said Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va. About 60 percent of the more than 265,000 uninsured people in his state are potentially eligible for the Medicaid expansion, also scheduled for 2014. The Congressional Budget Office, the nonpartisan budgetary scorekeeper for lawmakers, is reassessing its estimate of the coverage impact of the law in light of the courts Medicaid ruling. Im very worried that the courts deci sion makes coverage for these very lowincome individuals optional for the states, said Rockefeller. Officials at the Health and Human Services department say they are not par ticularly concerned. They may have lost the stick, but they still have carrots. The law calls for Washington to cover the full cost of the first three years of the expansion, eventually dropping to a 90 per cent share. Thats still far above the aver age 60 percent federal share of Medicaid costs the government currently is paying. We believe that states will in fact take advantage of the coverage for these indi viduals because of many factors, said Mike Hash, director of the HHS office respon sible for the health overhaul. One is the available federal funding. Not every state took part when the Childrens Health Insurance Program was launched in the 1990s, Hash noted. But within two years they were all aboard. Jonathon Turley, a constitutional law scholar at George Washington University, says the ruling on Medicaid could go a long way toward undermining the overall law, in giving states a possible exit option. I look at this law and I see potential chaos if states start opting out, he said. In the end, he said of the laws standing after the court decision, it can be viewed as a success only to the extent a crash landing is still considered a landing. Many uninsured people still dont know what to make of Obamas law. Polls have found much skepticism that it will make much difference, even though expanding coverage is its central goal. Those of us who are uninsured have been getting the short end of the stick for so long we dont figure the stick will get any longer, said Casey Quinlan, a selfemployed consultant and breast cancer sur vivor who has been uninsured more than three years. She lives near Richmond, Va. Going without health insurance has long been seen as a personal issue, a misfortune for many and a choice for some. Of those who lose coverage, half get it back in a mat ter of months, usually by landing a new job. Others face years of uncertainty. The hospitalization, outpatient and pre scription benefits will be fairly standard, keyed to plans now available to people with employer coverage. Quinlan said she thinks she will pick low-cost cata strophic coverage to keep her monthly premiums manageable. Shes a little uneasy about having to wait until 2014. What if Republicans deliv er on their vow to repeal what they scorn as Obamacare? People are going to be exhausted by the idea that were going to have to slog forward another two years until the mar ket opens up, she said. 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 8AHealth Accepting New Patients Medicare, Blue Cross and most insurance plans accepted, worker compensation Specializing in adult medical care including: Primary Care High Blood Pressure Heart Disease Lung Disease Gastrointestinal High Cholesterol Diabetes Headache Evaluation and Treatment Arthritis Low Back Problems Evaluation and Treatment Optifast Weight Loss System Full Dizziness, vertigo and balance diagnosis and treatment Womens Health Accepting New Patients SOUTHERN INTERNAL MEDICINE Located in the Lake City Mediplex Building 404 N.W.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comThe Lake City 12-under Babe Ruth all-star team is looking to add a state title to its District 6 tournament championship. The Florida Babe Ruth Baseball 2012 North State Tournament 12U begins today in Live Oak at the First Federal Sportsplex. The double-elimination tournament has an eight-team field. The four-day event begins at 8 a.m. today with a pre-tournament meeting for managers, coaches, umpires and tournament officials at the Rotary Centennial By STEVEN WINEAssociated PressWIMBLEDON, England Â— Novak Djokovic closed out his latest Wimbledon win with an ace, then threw a fist and let loose a primal scream. Bring on Roger Federer. TheyÂ’ll meet at Wimbledon for the first time Friday. Federer earned a record 32nd Grand Slam semifinal berth and moved closer to a record-tying seventh Wimbledon title Wednesday, beating Mikhail Youzhny, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2. Minutes later on an adjacent court, defending cham-pion Djokovic finished off Florian Mayer, 6-4, 6-1, 6-4. Federer has a 14-12 edge against the top-ranked Djokovic. TheyÂ’ve met in Grand Slam semifinals five times the past two years, with Djokovic winning four of those matches. TheyÂ’ve never played each other on grass. Â“A nice matchup,Â” Federer said. Â“Obviously IÂ’m aware that Novak is the defending champion and the world No. 1. ThatÂ’s not going to make it easy.Â” Â“ItÂ’s always a pleasure playing against Roger,Â” Djokovic said. Â“Obviously heÂ’s a great champion. He has been so dominant and consistent in these Grand Slams, and heÂ’s really an ultimate challenge on grass courts.Â” The other semifinal will match No. 4-seeded Andy Murray against No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Murray, seeking to become the first British man since 1938 to reach the Wimbledon final, needed nearly four hours to defeat No. 7 David Ferrer, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (6), 6-4, 7-6 (4). Tsonga advanced to the semifinals for the second year in a row by beating first-time Grand Slam quarterfinalist Philipp Kohlschreiber 7-6 (6), 4-6, 7-6 (3), 6-2. Murray and Tsonga are both seeking their first major title. Federer had been tied with Jimmy Connors for the most major semifinals. He reached the final four at Wimbledon for the first time since 2009, when he won the title for the sixth time. Â“IÂ’m just happy that IÂ’m around farther than IÂ’ve been the last couple years,Â” Federer said. Against the No. 26-seeded Youzhny, Federer showed no sign of the back ailment that prompted him to seek treatment during the first set of his previous match. In the second game, he con-verted his fifth break-point chance and pulled away from there. The Centre Court audience included Prince William and wife Kate, Andre Agassi, Steffi Graf and Rod Laver, all sitting in the Royal Box. Â“I think it helps when royalty shows up, and other legends of the game come and see me play,Â” Federer said. Â“ItÂ’s inspiring.Â” Federer, ranked No. 3, seeks to match the record of seven Wimbledon titles set by William Renshaw in the 1880s and tied by Pete Sampras in 2000. If he wins the title, heÂ’ll reclaim the top ranking from Djokovic and tie SamprasÂ’ record for most weeks at the top. Djokovic had just a little more difficulty in the quar-terfinals than Federer. Â“IÂ’ve been playing really well, constantly well, from the start of the tourna-ment,Â” Djokovic said.

Don Combs had no problem in the Saturday blitz, despite a bit of extra water on the course. Combs carded a +5 to take first place, one point better than Jonathan Allen and David Rhodes, who tied for second. Bruce Gibson and Steve Patterson tied for fourth at +2. GibsonÂ’s two winners led the skins action. Terry Hunter and Steve Thomas matched Rhodes and Allen with one skin apiece. Bob Randall and Mickey Wilcox had the only plus scores in SundayÂ’s blitz to forge a first-place tie at +2. Closest to the pin winners were Steve Patterson on No. 7 and Mickey Wilcox on No. 18. Buddy Slay was the only multiple skins winners with two. Steve Thomas, Randall, Wilcox and Patterson had one skin each. In Good Old Boys play, the team of Stan Woolbert, Ed Snow and Paul Davis needed a scorecard deci-sion to edge the team of Eli Witt, Mike Spencer and Dan Stephens after regular play ended in a 5-5 tie. The team of Dennis Hendershot, Hugh Sherrill and Dave Cannon were close with 3 points. Woolbert maneuvered through the par 74 layout used by the group with the dayÂ’s low score of 38-42-80.

Ralph MinsterÂ’s chip shot was good enough to lead teammates Pete Skantzos and Shelton Keen to victory in the Sunday Scramble. Three teams finished in a tie for first at -3, which resulted in a playoff to determine a winning team. All three teams made pars on two playoff holes, neces-sitating the sudden-death chip-off. Everyone struggled with the selected shot from thick rough to a downhill pin, but MinsterÂ’s chip was the winner. There was no winner in the big pot again, despite chances on Nos. 4 and 5. The lucky number was No. 6, so the pot rolls over. The Wednesday Scramble was rained out and its big pot will be in play again. FridayÂ’s Dogfight results had Jack Tuggle in first at +3 and Tim Tortorice taking second at +2. Closest to pin winners were Tuggle (Ponds No. 3), Jerry Perkins (Ponds No. 5 and Creeks No. 6), Shelton Keen (Creeks No. 2) and Randy Heavrin (Creeks No. 8). The next Junior Golf Camp is July 16-20.

DEAR ABBY: I am 39, married, and a profes-sional woman with a good income. My best friend, Â“Barbie,Â” and I both went to work after high school without completing our education. However, after several years I decided to go to college and get a degree so I could change careers. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made. My income has more than doubled. Barbie is obviously jealous of my new life, which affords me opportunities to travel, take vacations, and have the money to buy things I couldnÂ’t afford before. She and her family barely make ends meet. Although we have been like sisters since child-hood, I now feel as if I must walk on eggshells around her -guarding my conversation lest I mention a new purchase or having time off. If something does slip out, Barbie becomes defensive and sarcastic. Abby, I shouldnÂ’t have to apologize for my new lifestyle. I worked hard to make a change for myself. What can I do? An example: We went shopping last week. She bought only a gift she had to have for a birthday -nothing for herself. I felt uncomfortable with my purchases, even though they werenÂ’t extravagant. She made a comment to the effect that Â“it must be nice to be able to buy something so frivolous.Â” I should mention that BarbieÂ’s parents are still willing to send her through college or a tech school, even at the age of 39, but she chooses not to make the effort. -TIRED OF FEELING APOLOGETIC DEAR TIRED: When your friend commented that it must be nice to be able to buy something frivolous, you had an opening to tell her that before you earned your degree you couldnÂ’t either, which was one of the reasons you decided it was time to change your life by returning to school. Your friend is fortunate she has parents who are able (and willing) to pay for her college education. How sad that she lacks the determi-nation and drive to get one. If the relationship is to continue, you will have to forgo the shopping trips together and any refer-ences to your new lifestyle. Otherwise, they will be perceived as bragging, and the comparisons may be painful to her. Be prepared to be sensitive to that, or move on. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am the owner of a small boutique for women. My only full-time employee is every-thing an employer could ask for. However, she often comes in looking like she just crawled out of bed and doesnÂ’t own an iron. What can I say to help her become more aware of her appearance? I donÂ’t want to hurt her feelings. Please help. Thank you. -ANNE IN MISSOURI DEAR ANNE: Because your employee didnÂ’t take the hint, you must be more direct with her. Explain that you expect her to dress more carefully for work because: 1. Her attire repre-sents the image of the shop, and 2. a salesperson who is sharply dressed inspires customers to shop. Then tell her EXACTLY what you expect from her, and offer to help her coordinate some acceptable outfits -perhaps by giving her a discount on some items from the store. If that doesnÂ’t work, consider putting together a Â“uniformÂ” for her to wear when sheÂ’s working. ItÂ’s what some of the top designers have done in their stores. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your changing attitude will encourage you to take on an unusual task. Fixing something you can put to good use now will save you money. An idea you have will entice someone you want to spend more time with to get involved. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You are prone to make a poor decision. Hard work and discipline are what you will need to advance. A problem at home will make it difficult to concentrate on important work mat-ters. A change of scenery will do you good. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Think big, and you will encourage someone to get involved in your plan. High energy and lots of interaction with oth-ers will lead to success. Suggestions will be worth considering. A profitable venture is apparent. Love is highlighted. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Dealing with institu-tions, agencies or authority figures will present prob-lems. DonÂ’t get angry with the wrong person. Size up your situation calmly and youÂ’ll find a better way to handle whatever you face. Secret activities will cause uncertainty. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You will invite change and excitement into your life if you participate in an activ-ity or organization that offers mental or physical stimulation. Exposure to different cultures or ideas will help broaden your viewpoint. Love is in the stars. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): DonÂ’t push your luck at work or where your reputation is concerned. Someone will want to make you look bad, and given the chance, it can affect your ability to advance. Honesty will be necessary. Keep talks short, simple and succinct. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): YouÂ’ll be very enter-taining. People will want to be part of whatever you do. Travel plans are encouraged, even if it is a short trip that will take you somewhere youÂ’ve never been. New experiences will stimulate fresh ideas. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): When money is involved, you are best to take a pass. Keep your assets, possessions and cash in a safe place. Not everyone will be forth-right regarding intentions. Moving forward with proj-ects on your own will bring higher returns. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): DonÂ’t alter or embellish any information you are passing along. Clear and concise talks will bring all sorts of benefits in the end. A partnership with someone who thinks big and is determined to excel will lead to greater prosperity. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Listen, but donÂ’t make a move until you are positive you have all the facts and figures straight. You stand to lose if you are too gullible. Impulsive moves or rash statements will cost you emotionally or financially. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Spend more time at home or interacting with the people you know and love most. Working toward a greater goal or your own small enterprise will bring you rewards. Cut your costs by making changes to your living arrange-ments. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Be careful not to go after something or some-one for the wrong reasons. Your motives have to be geared toward a positive outcome for everyone involved if you are going to be successful. Strive for equality in any partnership you form. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

By JAMEY KEATEN Associated Press ROUEN, France With British rival Mark Cavendish downed by a late crash, Germanys Andre Greipel led a final dash among the remaining top Tour de France sprinters to win the fourth stage into Normandy on Wednesday. Swiss rider Fabian Cancellara avoided the trouble and retained the overall lead for a fifth day after the 133-mile trek along side the English Channel from Abbeville to Rouen. The top standings didnt change: The Swiss leads second-place Bradley Wiggins, who hopes to be Britains first Tour winner, by seven seconds. Defending champion Cadel Evans of Australia was 17 seconds off the pace in seventh. With less than two miles left, Cavendish went down in a crash, scraping up his rainbow-colored jersey of world champion. He got back on his bicycle and rode gingerly to finish the stage. His Team Sky said he was banged up, but appeared to have no serious injuries. Greipel burst out of the depleted group of sprinters, and sped to the straight away finish, a split-second ahead of Italys Alessandro Petacchi and Dutch rider Tom Veelers. This is what we wanted. Its a good victory, said Greipel. Greipel wins 4th stage Pavilion, which is at the southeastern corner of the Sportsplex. State tournament direc tor Lisa Tscheider will review playing rules and answer questions. At least one member of each teams coaching staff is required to attend. Tournament play begins with two games at 11 a.m. Lake City vs. Atlantic Beach on Field 2 and Meridian Park vs. Marietta Bullsbay on Field 3. The 1:30 p.m. games are Madison vs. Santa Fe and Julington Creek vs. OPAA. The winners play each other at 9 a.m. Friday, while elimination games follow at 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. The championship final is 9 a.m. Sunday with the ifneeded game at 11:30 a.m. No pets, food, drinks or coolers are allowed into the park.
