BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comTALLAHASSEE Â— FloridaÂ’s counties may reconsider a law-suit over disputed Medicaid fees because the state has slashed $171.4 million from their bills, according to a spokeswoman for their statewide association. That cut the disputed amount by more than half Â— from $316 million to $146.4 million. Florida Association of Counties spokeswoman Cragin Mosteller called the reduction Â“exception-al.Â” She said the organization is still talking with its members about its next move but is Â“tak-ing everything under consider-ation.Â” That includes the pos-sibility of dropping the lawsuit thatÂ’s pending in a Tallahassee court. Columbia CountyÂ’s Medicaid fees were expected to total some-where around $1.2 million, said county manager Dale Williams.

BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comT wenty-one dogs were taken from a farm in Columbia County and transported to foster homes all around the state this week. Rescue groups rejoiced, while owner Pamela Porter feels she was treated unfairly. Animal control volunteer Holli Miller said the dogs were emaci-ated and infested with parasites when she first saw them. Â“Their gums were so pale,Â” she said. Miller said the dogs were living in very poor conditions: Some chained up, their drinking water covered in Â“green slimeÂ” and eat-ing donkey feces. Miller contacted a Sarasotabased organization called Aussie and Me Animal Rescue when she spotted two rescues from the property at Columbia County Animal Control. She said she arranged to have the animals taken to North Florida Animal Rescue in Wellborn, where they were treated for parasites, vacci-nated and given nourishment. Miller said the condition of the dogs was so poor, they would have been euthanized at the ani-mal shelter. Â“They would have euthanized them on intake or pretty close to it,Â” she said. Porter said it was her idea to bring the animals in to animal control to begin with. With a disabled husband in a wheelchair, a mother who recent-ly suffered a massive stroke and unpaid funds owed to her, Porter said she had recently come upon hard times. Â“When they got to the point that they were small and scrawny, I turned myself in,Â” Porter said.

Psalm 119:30 NIV Thought for the Day I have always considered marriage as the most interesting event of ones life, the foundation of happiness or misery. George Washington LONDON The athletes and the Olympic torch have arrived in London and so has the party. For those keener on celebrity-spot ting or dancing the night away than medal counting, the British host city has plenty of action to offer during games time. Away from the track and field, Hollywood royalty such as Brangelina and Nicole Kidman will be rubbing shoulders with diplomats and businessmen at the citys glitzi est clubs and grandest historic build ings. Meanwhile, Dizzy Rascal, Snow Patrol and other musicians will keep crowds entertained at outdoor con certs across the capital though there wont be cocktails and canapes. The party vibe kicks off Saturday with the sold-out River of Music festival, which features six stages along the Thames, each named for a different continent. Musicians from the Americas, for example, are tak ing over Londons iconic Tower of London, headlined by a gig by the Scissor Sisters. Other performers from across the globe include Baaba Maal, Wynton Marsalis and the Kronos Quartet. One of the most glamorous bashes in town will be a charity gala dinner at the Victoria & Albert Museum on Wednesday, two days before the Olympic opening cer emony. Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Christopher Lee and Bob Geldof are expected to attend the black-tie event, which is organized by the charity Sports for Peace and held in honor of boxing great Muhammad Ali. Others reportedly attending include Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Prince Harry. The organizers did not immediately con firm the reports, but judging from the list of celebs sitting on the char itys committee George Clooney, Catherine Deneuve and Hilary Swank, to name a few there will definitely be no shortage of VIPs. In Soho, Londons buzzing res taurant and nightlife district, luxury watchmaker Omega, the Olympics official time-keeper, will be hosting its own A-list soirees in a speciallyrefurbished townhouse until the end of the games on Aug 12. Kidman is expected at a launch party on July 28, while a space-themed bash on Aug. 2 will feature American astro nauts Buzz Aldrin, Gene Cernan and Tom Stafford. A publicist said other guests will include swimmer Michael Phelps and Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan. Other celebrities will make appear ances during the games but only on video. Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, actress Helen Mirren and boxing star Amir Khan are among those who record ed a goodbye video that will be played on screens as fans leave the Olympic venues at the end of each sports session. Its not just the celebrities who know how to party. The Russians are planning to bring Moscow nightlife to a VIP pavilion in Kensington Gardens, which for the duration of the Olympics will be home to all things Russian. Not on the guest list? Russia Park, as it is called, will be free to enter during the day, and the public can enjoy the countrys food, music, or have a go at ice curling. Dozens of other countries will set up their own national hospitality houses across London, and several are open to the public. Casa Brasil at Somerset House will showcase Brazilian culture and sport and promote Rios hosting of the 2016 Summer Games. Beer lovers should focus on the German Houses party held on the cruise liner MS Deutschland, the Irish House at a pub at Kings Cross, and the Netherlands Heineken House at north Londons Alexandra Palace. Russian quits Bayreuth festival over tattoos BERLIN A Russian baritone who was due to sing the lead role in Richard Wagners The Flying Dutchman when the Bayreuth opera festival opens next week with drew from the event Saturday after it emerged that he once had Nazi-relat ed symbols tattooed on his body. A German television program broadcast Friday showed old foot age of a bare-chested Evgeny Nikitin playing drums in a rock band, in which a swastika tattoo partly cov ered by another symbol could be seen. The festival said Nikitin made his decision amid questions from a German newspaper about the signifi cance of some of his tattoos. Organizers made Nikitin, 38, aware of the connotations of these symbols in connection with German history, said a statement from the festival in Bayreuth, in the southeast ern state of Bavaria. It added that his decision to pull out is in line with the festival leaderships consistent rejection of any form of Nazi ideas. The festival is currently led by the composers great-granddaughters, Eva Wagner-Pasquier and Katharina Wagner. The Nazi past is a sensitive issue for the Bayreuth festival, which was founded by Richard Wagner in 1872. 21 treated for burns after Robbins event SAN JOSE, Calif.

Authorities responded to what they thought was a crime scene Friday morn ing after a man mysteri ously called 911, said hos pital, gave his address and hung up. The door was unlocked but no one was at the Spring Hill residence when paramedics arrived at the residence. Authorities would not elaborate what paramedics found at the home. Deputies said evi dence raised suspicion that someone inside the house had been seriously injured. They released bulletins with the homeowners information. Tampa Police said 47year-old Michael Medina tried to kill himself at the home, but survived and convinced his roommate to drive him to the hos pital. Authorities did not describe Medinas injuries, but said he likely hid them from his roommate, cover ing them with a cloth or towel. While on their way to the hospital, Medina refused to be taken to the nearest location and insist ed on going to a hospital farther away in Tampa. Medina began struggling with his roommate, forc ing the driver to stop the car abruptly on the Howard Frankland Bridge. Authorities said witnesses corroborated the drivers story. Medina jumped out of the car and into the bay. His body was recovered and transported to the medical examiner, authori ties said. Parents charged after sons death PORT CHARLOTTE A Port Charlotte couple has been arrested after authorities say their tod dler swallowed prescrip tion painkillers.

A medical examiner said the infant had toxic levels of Oxycodone in his blood. Charlotte County Sheriffs detectives said the couple was snorting Oxycodone the night before the boys death. Authorities found empty prescription bottles of Oxycodone and metha done at their home. Child welfare officials removed two other chil dren from the home. The 2-year-olds urine tested positive for drugs. The children were placed in their grandparents care.

Police: 17-year-old burglarized vehicles By HANNAH O. BROWN firstname.lastname@example.org Seventeen-year-old Austin Lee Roberts was booked on a felony charge of burglary after stealing prop erty from unlocked vehicles, accord ing to a report from the Lake City Police Department. Roberts was spotted on Ermine Street at 2:10 a.m. on Friday carrying a speaker box and wearing a back pack, say police. According to an LCPD report, officer Ivan Useche approached Roberts and asked to look in his back pack. Roberts consented. Inside the backpack, Useche discovered three GPS units, three cell phones, three knives, an XM radio and a flashlight. Useche question Roberts as to where he got the equipment. Roberts confessed that he stole it from unlocked vehicles, the report said. Useche arrested Roberts and returned the prop erty to three different owners. Roberts was booked in Columbia County Jail on a felony charge of burglary of an occupied struc ture/conveyance and three counts of misdemeanor charges of burglary of a unoccupied structure/con veyance. Roberts HOMES: Sales in Columbia County rise in June Continued From Page 1A MEDICAID: County bill, in dispute, is cut by half Continued From 1A due amount on Wednesday, an amount of roughly $600,000. Williams said he was proud of county staff for their contributions toward faciliatating the reduction. I think it says two things: One it says that cer tain people in Tallahassee kept t heir promise when they said that they would work with the existing staff and agencies to help us and they did. Secondly, I think it says a lot about the staff of the county because that would not have been adjusted had there not been sufficient paperwork and documen tation to show that it was a non-resident, a double bill, a miscoded bill, all of the things that go wrong in medical billing, Williams said. Commissioner Ron Williams expressed his gratitude toward Gov. Rick Scott for the reduction. The govenor kept his word and I really appreciate him for doing so, Williams said. We didnt win in the legislature but we won with the governor keeping his word and saying, you dont have to pay for bills you dont owe and he put the staff together to do it. Mosteller also praised Scott for keeping his prom ise to ensure counties are dunned only for what they actually owe. Scott made that pledge in March when he signed a law withholding state rev enue sharing from coun ties that fail to pay disputed charges going back several years. The association and 47 individual counties out of Floridas 67 then sued in state Circuit Court chal lenging the new law. No hearing has yet been set in the case. Counties are billed for a portion of the services their residents receive from the state-federal health care program for low-income and disabled patients. The lawsuit alleges the counties are being over charged because of mis takes made by the states electronic billing system. It cites such examples as Alachua County being billed for applications that failed to list a billing code because its first on the alphabetical list of counties and various counties being billed for nonresidents. That includes Escambia County getting bills for residents of neighboring Escambia County, Ala. Lawmakers who support ed the law, which passed on largely partisan votes in the Republican-controlled Legislature, contend the counties are simply refus ing to pay their fair share because their budgets are pinched in tough economic times. The association on Friday sent its members a memo urging them to share your appreciation to Scott, not ing the governor and other state officials have spent the past three months reviewing the backlog of county Medicaid bills. Agency for Health Care Administration Deputy Director Karen Zeiler vis ited all 67 counties and rec ommended an administra tive rule, which the associa tion says will provide a fair way to implement the law. A hearing on the proposal is set for July 26. The agency oversees Floridas Medicaid pro gram and is a defendant in the lawsuit. It argues in part that the law violates the Florida Constitution because it did not pass by a two-thirds majority in each legislative chamber as required for unfunded mandates and revenue sharing reduc tions. The legislation met the super majority require ment in the House but fell four votes short in the Senate. The Associated Press con tributed to this article. tom. Theres a very good likelihood that prices will start to go up next year, Curry said. Even if prices dont go up, if interest rates go up its the same thing. Curry said interest rates are cur rently very low, some listed as afford able as 4 percent. Interest rates are the lowest weve seen in 60 years, he said. Curry said he believes consumer confidence is also on the rise. Jobless figure jumps to 8.4% By HANNAH O. BROWN email@example.com The number of jobless Columbia County residents has increased since last month. Unemployment in Columbia County rose to 8.4 percent in June from 7.9 percent in May. The county was ranked as the 43rd highest out of 67 counties in the state. The percentage of jobless in Florida stalled in June, remaining at 8.6 per cent for a second straight month. The seasonally adjusted rate for June was unchanged from the May figure and nearly 800,000 Floridians remain jobless, the Department of Economic Opportunity reported Friday. Floridas unemployment remains above the national average of 8.2 percent and 15 of 67 counties reported double-figure unemploy ment, compared to eight counties a month ago. Republican Gov. Rick Scott has made creating jobs the centerpiece of his administration. Scott campaigned on a pledge to create 700,000 new jobs in seven years and claimed Friday that 127,000 private-sector jobs have been created in the past 18 months. Scott touted 9,000 jobs were added in June, although it wasnt enough to move the needle percentage wise. The June increases included 3,300 in the public sector. State economists said earlier this week that the states unemploy ment rate had improved statistically because so many people have retired or given up on finding employment, not because more are landing jobs. They said the states unemployment rate would be 9.5 percent if the num ber of workers in Florida had held steady jobs since December. Scott argues the states dropping unemployment rate is because of changes he has been pushing such as removing regulations he believes only slows down job expansion. As companies are choosing to grow and expand in our state, we are continuing to see Florida experi ence a positive economic recovery, Scott said Friday during a visit to a Zephyrhills job placement agen cy. Floridians have more and more opportunities to get back to work. Construction continues to be the big soft spot in the Florida economy. The Virginia-based Associated General Contractors of America noted Friday that Florida has lost the most construction jobs of any state in the country between June 2011 and June 2012. Ongoing cuts to vital infrastruc ture, school and university invest ments are hurting the overall econo my ... causing hardship for too many construction workers, said Stephen Sandherr, the associations chief executive officer. Monroe County, which benefits from a high proportion of govern ment jobs, had the states strongest job numbers with 5 percent unem ployment. Hendry County in southwest Florida reported the highest unem ployment with one of seven potential workers looking for a job. The Associated Press contributed to this article.

OUR OPINION The fatal dilemma of the lone-wolf killer LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Thank you for the opportunity to respond to Mr. AdkinsÂ’ letter on July 20 regarding the Republican Executive CommitteeÂ’s Political Rally on July 17 at the Lake City Shrine Club. There are numerous assumptions made that are simply incorrect. My hope is that I can inform him of the facts and clear this issue up once and for all. First, Mr. Adkins needs to understand that these rallies are planned and executed by the Columbia County Republican Executive Committee. The CCREC operates solely at the pleasure of the Republican Party of Florida. Therefore, we are obligated to follow rules estab-lished by RPOF. Next, Mr. Adkins needs to understand that Columbia County is a Â“charterÂ” county. As such, all county offices are non-partisan. This includes the school superintendent, the sher-iff, all constitutional officers, school board members and county commissioners. None of these candidates are even per-mitted to mention their political party on any campaign literature or signs. However, most multi-county offices are still partisan. These include state represen-tatives, state senators, state attorney and public defender. The only exception is for circuit judges. RPOF regulations are very clear. Local cxecutive commit-tees exist for the purpose of pro-moting and electing Republican candidates. IÂ’m sure that local Democrats follow similar rules. In non-partisan races, the local chairperson has the discretion to allow non-Republican can-didates to participate in local rallies. As chairman, I have elected to include Democrats in our events. As a committee, we believe this is the right decision for Columbia County. The regu-lations are not as flexible for partisan races. In our planning for this yearÂ’s rallies, we simply overlooked the fact that the state attorney was indeed a partisan race. This was an honest oversight on my part as chair. My assumption was that this office was identical to the circuit judges, and thus, nonpartisan. Moments prior to the start of our first rally in Fort White, I was informed by a state com-mittee member that this race was partisan. With only a few moments to make a decision, I decided to permit Mr. Jarvis to participate, and follow up with RPOF the following day and make a determination for subse-quent rallies. I believe this was the correct decision to make. Over the course of the next week, numerous discussions were held with RPOF officials. The determination from these discussions was that this was a violation of party regulations. Therefore, we had no option other than to notify Mr. Jarvis that he would not be able to speak at the Shrine Club rally. That was not my preference, but this was the decision I was given to carry out. In the days following the Shrine Club rally, I continued to plead our case to RPOF for an exception for Columbia County. Ultimately, and with the efforts of many, we were given an option that allowed us to permit Mr. Jarvis to participate in the remaining rallies. I believe this compromise serves the best interest of all involved.Alton Â“BuddyÂ” HinesChairmanColumbia County Republican Executive Committee Political rally exclusion explained Lake City Reporter Serving Columbia County Since 1874 The Lake City Reporter is published with pride for residents of Columbia and surrounding counties by Community Newspapers Inc.

BY E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org C olumbia County will face another revenue decline in fiscal year 2013 and thatÂ’s not surprising. Property values have not rebounded to former levels, so the tax on that value is less. The county will collect about $459,000 less on which to oper-ate in the coming year. County commissioners did not raise the millage rate and that was the right move. Residents currently cannot afford to pay higher taxes. That means county government, like every household it serves, must continue to cut back and pinch pennies. This is not a new exercise. Consider the damage to property and structures left behind by Tropical Storm Debby and some values possibly will change again for the following year. We donÂ’t see a problem with scaling back county govern-ment. Government operates from the funds is collects through tax avenues from the population it serves. We say tighten the belt one more notch and do whatÂ’s necessary. We also urge county officials to be smart in their cutbacks and trim it where it has the least negative impact on residents. In turn, residents need to realize this may mean you stand in line a few minutes longer because there are fewer county employees to assist customers. It may mean a non-emergency response from a county department takes a little longer. It may mean your road Â— which most residents say never gets enough attention Â— remains passable, but rough. We realize we get what we pay for. The county has done a solid job in recent years provid-ing services while facing the reality of less income from tax revenue. ThereÂ’s still room to carve more on the expense side. Officials need to step up and do it. Tighten your belts Â– again Q The Washington Times OPINION Sunday, July 22, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AEDIT ANOTHER VIEW T he Aurora, Colo., theater shootings represent one of law enforcementÂ’s worst nightmares: a Â“lone wolfÂ” killer acting with no accomplices and with no discernible motive other than a sense of burning resentment and persecution, opening fire in a public place. The instant judgment is that the attack came without warn-ings. But evidence of impending violence will turn up as police delve into the background of James Holmes, 24, a dropout from a University of Colorado-Denver doctoral program being held for killing 12 and wounding nearly 60 more, at last report. The signs were there in the 1999 Columbine high School kill-ings -law enforcement knew that one of the two young shooters was deeply troubled -if anybody had bothered to follow up on them. A report on Army Maj. Nidal Hasan -who in 2009 murdered 13 soldiers and civilians at Fort Hood, Texas -concluded that the FBI could have known, should have known, Hasan was a threat but, through a series of gaffes and gaps in the system, failed to act. The report coinci-dentally was released the day before the Aurora murders. Even when the signs are detected, U.S. legal and health-care systems are poorly set up to deal with troubled individuals deemed only potential threats. Seung-Hui Cho, 23, a sullen loner who killed 32 classmates and himself at Virginia Tech in 2007, had been so identified and referred for psychiatric counsel-ing for which he failed to show up. ChoÂ’s case demonstrates that the search for a rational motive in these killings is futile. In his suicide video, he incoherently absolved himself and blamed society. Â“You had a hundred bil-lion chances and ways to have avoided today,Â” Cho said in one. Â“But ... you forced me into a corner and gave me only one option. The decision was yours.Â” Inevitably, amateur social and political theorists will link the Aurora killings to some deep flaw in American culture. Indeed, only a few hours after the killings, various ideological websites were shamelessly bent on exploiting the killings for political advantage. Some even linked the killings to the movie playing at the time, the much-anticipated Batman sequel, Â“The Dark Knight Rises.Â” But except for easy access to high-powered semiauto-matic weapons, there is nothing unique to the United States about lone-wolf mass killers. A compilation by The Associated Press shows that in the last 10 years there have been similar killings in Norway, Azerbaijan, Finland twice -and Germany. If you factor in mass killings where there is some semblance of motive -race, religions, eth-nicity -the United States is not even close to being dangerous. It is of no comfort to the victimsÂ’ families and to the survivors. But these lone-wolf killings come as such a horren-dous shock because statistically they are so rare. What frightens us is that we donÂ’t understand the killers and their crimes -and given the complexities of human nature and the dark recesses of the mind and heart perhaps they are incapable of Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service. Dale McFeattersmcfeattersd@shns.com T he midnight mas-sacre at a screening of Â“The Dark Knight RisesÂ” in Aurora, Colo., has put the issue of gun control back at center stage. Leftist lawmak-ers and TV anchors jumped the gun with the usual calls to restrict the Second Amendment. Propaganda aside, preventing tragedies like this in the future involves giving citizens the abil-ity to fight back, not just be sit-ting ducks. Invariably when a tragedy like this occurs, politicians and pundits seek quickly to spin it to their advantage. ABC News rushed out a report linking the shooter to the Colorado Tea Party, apparently based on a few seconds of Internet research that yielded the name Â“Jim HolmesÂ” on a Tea Party web-site. Predictably, it turned out that this Jim Holmes is not the 24-year-old alleged shooter but a 52-year-old Hispanic conserva-tive, whose ethnicity doesnÂ’t fit the dominant mainstream media narrative. ABC News later apologized for Â“disseminat-ing that information before it was properly vetted.Â” This was a particularly egregious breach of journalistic discipline consider-ing that the suspect was already in custody and many details regarding his life and motives would soon be made public. Gun-control advocates wasted no time before using the trag-edy to highlight their pet issue. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg offered a useless policy prescription for gun violence: Â“ItÂ’s just gotta stop.Â” CNN host Piers Morgan took to the Twittersphere to advise, Â“America has got to do some-thing about its gun lawsÂ” and fret that Â“more Americans will buy guns after this, to defend themselves, and so the danger-ous spiral descends.Â” Mr. MorganÂ’s implied moral equivalency between violent psychopaths and responsible gun owners is shameful. The contrast is well-illustrated by a recent event in Ocala in which 71-year-old Samuel Williams broke up an armed robbery attempt at an Internet cafe using a legal, concealed handgun. The event was vividly captured on store security cameras and became an Internet sensation. There was no return fire at the theater in Aurora because apparently no one other than the shooter was armed. While Colorado has good concealed-carry laws, Cinemark cinemas donÂ’t allow guns on their prem-ises. The Cinemark massacre illustrates the ineffectiveness of this private gun-control policy. Granted, the circumstances of the two events were differ-ent. The cafe robbers came to steal, not slaughter. They were teenage punks, not psychopaths. The Batman shooter was wear-ing body armor, and the scene in the theater was dark and chaotic. An armed audience member may have shot another patron by mistake. But he may also have found his mark, and the shooting rampage could have been ended with far fewer casualties. Those who argue that tighter gun control would have prevented this tragedy should consider the possibility that gun control made it as quite deadly. The Aurora mass murder and similar tragedies prove that super villains exist, but there is no real-life Batman who will swoop to the rescue with a fancy gadget and ensure a happy ending. In a culture that increas-ingly glorifies violence, citizens Â— more than ever Â— need to have the means to exercise their right to self defense.The darkestnight

Tropical Storm Debby settled over North Florida for 4 days in late June, dumping more than 25 inches of rain in some areas of Suwannee, Hamilton and Columbia Counties. The Suwannee River rose to near record flood levels and dozens of sinkholes developed around those counties, destroying many businesses and homes while making roads impassible. Fifteen hundred families were flooded out of their homes many left without shelter, cars, clothes, food or any worldly possessions. The flood affected more than 10,000 other people throughout the tri-county area. More than 25 bands, including Music Park favorites Peter Rowan, The Lee Boys, Jamie Davis, The Swingin Johnsons, The Heavy Pets, The Legendary JCs, Donna the Buffalo and many more will fill up the special Suwannee Valley Flood Jam line-up. Two-Day Tickets are $45 in advance, $65 at the gate, and include primitive camping. Single-Day tickets cost $20 per day and are available only at the gate. Day tickets do not include primitive camping. An on-line charitable auction will also be available to those not able to attend. Whether in person or not, folks will have the opportunity to bid on a variety of great items, including artist memorabilia, diamond and gold jewelry, music instru ments, collectible items and much more. Stay connected to www.musicliveshere.com for updates, to view the online auc tion and to purchase tickets. One hundred percent of net profits from the Suwannee Valley Flood Jam will be donated to locally based charities Love INC, based in Live Oak, and The United Way, based in Lake City. Since the flood, the Suwannee Music Foundation and the Spirit of Suwannee Music Park have partnered with Love INC to deliver supplies and provide relief to affected house holds. These charitable efforts by music lovers everywhere have helped hundreds of people who have virtually nothing in this desperate time in their lives. Volunteers at both agen cies, along with many others throughout the three counties, have donated thousands of hours to help family, friends and complete strangers, wading in waist deep, contami nated water, bring out precious personal belongings, prized childrens toys and helping families find suitable temporary homes.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the ongoing investigation into the shoot ing rampage that killed 12 people and wounded 58. Holmes apartment appears to have three types of explosives jars filled with accelerants, chemicals that would explode when mixed together and more than 30 improvised gre nades, the official said. Oates said Holmes has been pre paring the attack for months. Weve become aware that he had a high volume of deliveries to both his work and home address. We think this explains how he got his hands on the magazine, ammunition, he said. We also think it begins to explain how he got the materials he had in his apartment. What were seeing here is evi dence of some calculation and delib eration, Oates added. FBI Special agent James Yacone said that while most of the explosives had been rendered safe in Holmes apartment, the threat has not been completely eliminated. It was an extremely dangerous environment, Yacone said. Makeshift memorials sprang up for the victims, including a 6-year-old girl, an aspiring sportscaster and a man celebrating his 27th birthday, after police grimly went door to door with a list of those killed in the worst mass shooting in recent U.S. history. Holmes, 24, was arrested early Friday outside the Aurora theater after wit nesses say he unleashed gunfire and gas canisters on a crowd of moviego ers watching the midnight showing of the new Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises. Federal officials said in a bulletin obtained by The Associated Press that they still hadnt determined a motive for the suspect as families grieved and others waited at hospitals, where seven of the wounded remained in critical condition on Saturday. In his Saturday radio address, President Barack Obama urged Americans to pray for the victims of this terrible tragedy, for the people who knew them and loved them, for those who are still struggling to recover. Details of the dead began to emerge Saturday, including the shootings youngest victim, 6-year-old Veronica Moser. Veronica had gone to the movies with her mother, who was drifting in and out of consciousness in a hospital intensive care unit, bullets lodged in her throat and abdomen. Nobody can tell her about it, Annie Dalton said of her aunt, Ashley Moser. She is in critical condition, but all shes asking about is her daughter. Veronica had just started swimming lessons on Tuesday, Dalton said. She was excited about life as she should be. Shes a 6-year-old girl, her great aunt said. Another victim, 27-year-old Matt McQuinn, was killed after diving in front of his girlfriend and her older brother to shield them from the gun fire, said his familys attorney, Rob Scott of Dayton, Ohio. Alex Sullivan had planned a week end of fun, to ring in his 27th birthday with friends at the special midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises and then celebrate his first wedding anniversary on Sunday. Late Friday, Sullivans family con firmed that police told them he was among those killed. He was a very, very good young man, said Sullivans uncle, Joe Loewenguth. He always had a smile, always made you laugh. He had a little bit of comic in him. Oates said Holmes used a militarystyle semi-automatic rifle, a shotgun and a pistol to open fire on the unsus pecting theater-goers. He had bought the weapons at local gun stores within the last two months. He also recently purchased 6,000 rounds of ammuni tion over the Internet, the chief said. The suspects stellar academic record, apparent shy demeanor and lack of a criminal background made the attack even more difficult to fath om. It also wasnt known why the sus pect chose a movie theater to stage the assault, or whether he intended some twisted, symbolic link to the films violent scenes. The Batman movie, the last in the trilogy starring Christian Bale, opened worldwide Friday with mid night showings in the U.S. The plot has the villain Bane facing Bales Caped Crusader with a nuclear weap on that could destroy all of fictional Gotham.
ent stages of life. Donkeys, pigs and a cow also roam the property, which spans over grasslands in the southwestern part of the county. When Porter first moved there, she had a poodle named Elvis and an Australian shepard mix named Bo. That was my boy, Bo, Porter said. After Elvis died unex pectedly, Porter bought two German Shepherd puppies to keep Bo com pany. Then she found a puppy on the side of the road one day. She took the puppy home and named her Sandy. Sandy got pregnant with Bos puppies and soon after, Bo died. Bo ended up dead and it broke my heart, Porter remembered, her eyes glossy with tears. I thought Id never get over it. But Sandy had gotten pregnant and had eight puppies and it was like that was my way of hanging on to Bo. Porter cherished the puppies, feeding them vitamins and helping them grow strong. When they were two months old, they looked like they were about six months old, she said. They were just big and nice but not overweight. Then those puppies bred with each other and even more puppies came. Soon Porter had too many dogs to handle, many of them descendants of her beloved Bo. It kind of got to the point where I had to accept Bo was gone ... you know, let them go, she said. Shes always had good intent, Supervisor of Animal Control Dale Griffin said of Porter. Shes just got too much going on. Griffin said in the past animal control only had to address minor issues on Porters property, while the dogs appeared to be in good health. When Porter began to take them in to animal con trol, Griffin said the dogs were very thin. Some had parasites, heartworms and infections from dog bite wounds. Karen Kroll, founder of Aussie and Me Animal Rescue, said the situation was worse than Porter realized. Kroll said each dog needed hundreds if not thousands of dollars of treatment. She is not looking at a realistic situation, Kroll said of Porter. It became a hoarding case without her knowing it was a hoarding case. Porter admits the dogs were in poor shape, but asserts it was her decision to find them new homes. Every dog was not underweight but I did have some underweight dogs and I am not going to deny that and that under weight is what pushed me to take them to animal control on my own free will, Porter said. Kroll said Columbia County Animal Control and other rescue groups have been working with Porter for weeks to come up with a plan for the res cue of the dogs. Weve been trying to work with her to under stand the magnitude of whats going on, Kroll said. We did not go in there like gangsters. It was no seizure at all, Griffin said. Initially, Porter was tak ing the dogs in to animal control in small groups. She had issues with let ting them go, Griffin said. She had them for a long time. When Kroll and Miller witnessed the condition of the dogs, they tried to speed up the process. They started making calls, getting local shelters and vet clinics on board for the effort. A Facebook page was even created to garner support. With rescue, the mon eys not always available so you have to move when the money is available, Griffin said. On Monday, a massive undertaking took place in which 17 of the dogs were taken from the property. Miller said volunteers were driving around the state, delivering them to foster homes and vet clin ics that day. Miller is currently fos tering two of the dogs. She says the first thing the new family did on their freedom ride home was order plain double cheese burgers. Twenty-one of the dogs were taken off the prop erty, leaving three dogs (one disabled) living with Porter. But Kroll hopes to have the other dogs removed as well. I believe she will use those for breeding and shell start all over, Kroll said. Porter hoped to keep the two German shep herds, but said Kroll insisted on taking them from the property. Miller said the German shepherds were in the worst shape. A video of the dogs shows protrud ing ribs and hip bones. She did everything over the phone, Porter said of Kroll. At the end of the day, they mentioned that they would really prefer that I kept no dogs. I was like, Excuse me? I do need some dogs. I have animals. It only makes sense to me. I am giving away all of these animals from the goodness of my heart for you to do the right thing and then you dont want me to keep four. Come on. Griffin agreed that Porter would be able to take care of four dogs. Its just a matter of what she can afford, Griffin said. Executive Director of Lake City Humane Society Terry Marques said the shelter is still trying to determine if Porter can take care of the animals. If she is able to provide care, then we can definite ly work with her to keep those pets, Marques said. Porter believes the atti tude taken against her was unjust. I was wrongly treated, Porter said. They are try ing to make me look out to be a bad person against animals and I am not like that, I am far from that.

NAACP revival set for Wednesday to Friday DOGS: 21 animals taken from Columbia County farm, given new homes Continued From 1A Skunkie Acres no longer a nuisance By HANNAH O. BROWN firstname.lastname@example.org The Department of Health concluded that nuisances formerly found at Skunkie Acres are no longer an issue. During a surprise inspection in June by Code Enforcement, Building and Zoning and the county DOH, the DOH document ed excessive flies and animal waste odors as violations of the county health code on Skunkie Acres property. The DOH conducted a re-inspection on July 10 and found that both issues had been corrected. They put out fly traps and they found the problem, Environmental Health Director Sallie Ford said. Ford said boxes with rotten food had previously been causing the violations. With the boxes gone, the problem was corrected. Ford said no further actions are antici pated concerning Skunkie Acres at this time. They wont hear any problems with us if they keep it just they way they had it on the 10th, Ford said. County senior staff assistant David Kraus said no code enforcement violations were documented for Skunkie Acres from recent inspections. Kraus said a letter was recently deliv ered to Skunkie Acres that detailed recom mendations for the property. Maintenance of the trash pile and dumpsters were the main issues addressed. If they work on these housekeeping issues, they will not be in violation, Kraus said. Kraus said the county generally takes a friendly, cooperative approach before adopting a strict enforcement strategy.

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comDELAND Â— After three days, more than 10 games and over 300 plays, Columbia High feels ahead of the game. The Tigers return with much more experience after the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Football Camp in Deland this weekend. Score wasnÂ’t kept throughout the games as part of the Christian theme in the camp, but it was easy to tell which teams were coming out on top. It was also a good measuring stick for the teams on top of the competition. Â“ThatÂ’s the reason we came to the camp,Â” Columbia offensive coor-dinator Mitch Shoup said. Â“ItÂ’s an advantage to our team to take a look and see where we are at after the summer. It put us to the test and we got to see how we progressed.Â” For the Tigers and head coach Brian Allen, the feel-ing is Columbia is ready to compete in 2012. Â“The camp went well,Â” Allen said. Â“The first two days were pretty good, but we kind of wore out toward the end. Still, we are more prepared than we would have been without it. I abso-lutely feel like we are right there (with the stateÂ’s top schools). IÂ’m comfortable with the kids and theyÂ’re playing well.Â” Columbia was able to stack up against some of the stateÂ’s best teams including Gainesville, Bartram Trail, Vero Beach, Apopka and other high schools. Allen said itÂ’s a good way to gauge which teams will make runs this season. Â“You can tell which teams are up and which teams are down,Â” he said. Â“You look at Bartram Trail, which had four or five Division-I By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comFort White High will make the trip down to Deland in coach Demetric JacksonÂ’s sixth season in a test to see where the Indians stack up this season beginning today. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes Football Camp begins for the Indians today and runs through Tuesday. Â“The biggest benefit really is for us to grow together as a team,Â” Jackson said. Â“We get to practice against other teams and consistent-ly get to see other looks. We take pride in our team being a family and this helps bring us closer together.Â” Among the schools that will compete against Fort White are Hernando, Taylor County, Williston and Union County high schools. Â“The good news is that weÂ’re going against schools with similar size,Â” Jackson said. Â“The bad part is we donÂ’t want to go against teams that we will see in the regular season.Â” Still, Jackson appreciates the opportunity to see dif-ferent systems. Â“ThatÂ’s the biggest advantage,Â” he said. Â“We see our-selves all summer. We know what offense and defense weÂ’re going to run and can only simulate other teams. At FCA, you can actually play a team that runs a 3-4 in one game and turn around the next game and be playing against a 4-3.Â” The opportunity to play against other teams over the next three days is one Jackson cherishes and hopes brings the Indians together. Â“We want to go down and gel,Â” he said. Â“ThatÂ’s one thing that separates the good teams from the play-off teams. How well can we play together.Â”

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JULY 22, 2012 3B%632576Scott takes 4-shot lead into OpenÂ’s final round By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressLYTHAM ST. ANNES, England Â— Adam Scott has never had a better chance to end that long wait for a major championship Â— mostly because of that long putter. Scott stayed in the game early with two key par saves, pulled away with three bird-ies around the turn and was solid at the end Saturday for a 2-under 68 that gave him a four-shot lead going into the final round at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. Â“It was all pretty solid stuff, considering the cir-cumstances and how much trouble there is on this golf course,Â” Scott said. The golf course, even without wind for three days, swallowed up Brandt Snedeker during a 10-hole stretch in the middle of the round and nearly knocked him out of contention. This is the fourth time in the last nine majors that someone took at least a four-shot lead into the final round. The only player who failed to win was Rory McIlroy at the Masters in 2011. But this Open was far from over. Scott narrowly missed a 20-foot birdie putt on the final hole that would have given him a share of the 54-hole Open scoring record. He settled for 11-under 199 and will play in the final group with Graeme McDowell, who had a 67 to get into the final group for the second straight time at a major. Snedeker birdied two of his last three holes to sal-vage a 73 and was tied with McDowell. Right behind them were three major champions, starting with the guy who has won 14 of them. Tiger Woods recovered from a sloppy start and was within three shots of the lead on the front nine until Scott pulled away. Woods missed a short par putt on the 15th and didnÂ’t give himself many good looks at bird-ie on the back nine for a 70, leaving him five shots behind. Woods has never won a major when trailing going into the last round. Three-time major champion Ernie Els was solid in his round of 68 and was six back, along with former Masters champion Zach Johnson, who had a 66. Even so, the biggest challenge might be the weather. If the forecast holds true Â— and thereÂ’s been no reason to believe that Â— the greatest defense of links golf could finally arrive with wind projected to gust up to 25 mph. Â“It will be in AdamÂ’s hands tomorrow if the con-ditions are as straightfor-ward as they have been the last few days,Â” McDowell said. Â“Throw a bit of wind across this course like per-haps they are forecasting, he will have to go and work a lot harder and he will have to go win it. Â“HeÂ’s going to have to go win it anyway, for sure.Â” McDowell was seven shots behind as he walked up to the 13th green and found three birdies coming in to get into the last group, just as he was at Olympic Club last month in the U.S. Open, where he was one putt away from forcing a playoff. Snedeker opened this championship by playing 40 holes without a bogey, and then he couldnÂ’t buy a par. He had to blast back-ward out of a bunker, chun-ked a pitch shot from the fairway, missed short putts and was reeling. He started with a one-shot lead and was six shots behind after only 11 holes. Snedeker rolled in a birdie on the 16th and stretched out his arms in mock wonder, and then finished with a birdie that could bode well for Sunday. Â“ItÂ’s just one of those things where youÂ’ve got to find out if you have some guts or donÂ’t,Â” he said. Â“I could have packed up and gone home today, but I didnÂ’t.Â” Scott was becoming a forgotten star until he switched to the long putter in February of last year, and it has been the big-gest reason for the turn-around Â— his runner-up at the Masters last year, win-ning his first World Golf Championship at Firestone, and now on the cusp of his first major. It certainly was the key to his third round. Showing nerves on the opening tee, he hit into a bunker and played a beauti-ful shot from the back of the wet sand to 8 feet, hol-ing the putt for par. Scott made another par putt from the same distance on the third hole. And in the mid-dle of his run of birdies Â— including a 30-foot putt on the eighth Â— he escaped with par on the 10th hole by making one from 18 feet. Â“To make a nice putt like that on the first and make par is obviously very settling,Â” Scott said. Â“And then to do the same thing on 3, thatÂ’s been a hole that I havenÂ’t parred this week. From there on, I was very settled into the round and started hitting fairways and greens.Â” He played it safe on the back nine, giving himself a few good looks, but most-ly making sure he didnÂ’t get into position for big numbers. The lone scare came on the 17th, when he pushed his approach into a bunker. Scott looked at the lie and figured he might have a chance to make it. He told his caddie, Steve Williams, Â“I can handle this one.Â” The shot came out pure, trickled by the cup and settled a foot away. Scott said Williams told him, Â“I thought you were going to handle it?Â” It was one of several light moments between a player searching for his first major and a caddie who has been around for 13 of them Â— all with Woods. The anticipa-tion in the final hour was whether Woods could get into the final group for another reunion with Williams, whom he fired last summer. McDowell took care of that with a late surge, start-ing with birdies on the 13th and 14th holes, and a 15-foot birdie putt on the 17th. Â“I kind of felt the tournament perhaps slipping away from me a little bit and really had to dig deep for some patience,Â” McDowell said. Â“From about the 14th tee onwards, itÂ’s probably about as good as IÂ’ve swung the club all week.Â” SnedekerÂ’s bogey-free streak Â— the longest to start a major championship since at least 1995 Â— ended with a three-putt from just short of the fifth green, and it spiraled from there. With his ball a foot away from a 4-foot bunker wall, he played back toward the fairway and hit a superb pitch from 40 yards to escape with bogey on the sixth. After that, nothing went his way until the end of the round. He will be in the penultimate group with Woods, who has rallied to win from five shots behind Â— but never in a major. It probably would help for the wind to arrive, although Woods is skeptical about the forecast. Perhaps his best chance is for Scott to struggle with his nerves while going for his first major. Â“HeÂ’s been out here a long time,Â” said Woods, who once shared a coach (Butch Harmon) with Scott. Â“And heÂ’s won a Players Championship. I donÂ’t think heÂ’s really done probably as well as heÂ’d like to in major championships. But I think that heÂ’s maturing in his game, and I think over the last year or so heÂ’s really improved his game.Â” ASSOCIATED PRESSAdam Scott plays a shot out of the bunker on the 17th hole at Royal Lytham & St Annes golf club during the third rou nd of the British Open Golf Championship, Lytham St Annes, England, on Saturday.ASSOCIATED PRESSTiger Woods lifts his hat on the 18th green at Royal Lytha m & St Annes golf club after his third round of the British O pen Golf Championship, Lytham St Annes, England, on Saturday.Wiggins all but clinches Tour de FranceBy JAMEY KEATENAssociated PressCHARTRES, France Â— Bradley Wiggins all but sealed the Tour de France title Saturday, capturing the final time trial with a com-manding show of authority. The Team Sky leader obliterated the pack in the 33-mile ride from Bonneval to Chartres and punched the air as he crossed the Stage 19 finish line. He is set to become the first Briton to win cyclingÂ’s most presti-gious race when the three-week ride ends Sunday in Paris with a largely ceremo-nial ride onto the Champs-Elysees. Wiggins sighed and looked skyward as he hoist-ed the winnerÂ’s bouquet. Â“I have a lot of emotion right now,Â” he said. Â“ItÂ’s the stuff of dreams to win the final time-trial and seal the Tour.Â” Wiggins was timed in 1 hour, 4 minutes, 13 sec-onds, for his second stage win of this Tour and second in a time trial. Countryman and teammate Christopher Froome was second, 1:16 behind. Luis Leon Sanchez of Spain was third, 1:50 back. Overall, Wiggins has a 3:21 lead over Froome, who is second. ItalyÂ’s Vincenzo Nibali is third, 6:19 back. The mostly flat course passed fields of corn and wheat into Chartres, known for its towering cathedral with asymmetrical spires. The route presented few challenges other than the breeze. Riders set off one-byone in the race against the clock in reverse order of the standings, and WigginsÂ’ dominance was evident from the first time check. He was 12 seconds ahead of Froome after 8 1/2 miles. Wiggins had a formidable lead coming into the stage. His only threat of any kind was from Froome, a suc-cessful time-trial rider, and less so from Nibali, who is not quite as strong in this discipline. Despite rumblings about behind-the-scenes competi-tion between them, Froome proved a faithful teammate to the end. Â“As we saw today, heÂ’s stronger than me,Â” Froome told French TV. Â“IÂ’m very happy. The (Sky) goal this year was to win the Tour with Bradley. To be second (for me) is an added plus.Â” The standings below them were the biggest question mark: Whether young American Tejay Van Garderen could overtake Jurgen Van Den Broeck for fourth Â— he didnÂ’t Â— or whether Frenchman Pierre Rolland, a strong climber but not a time-trialer, would stay in the top 10. He did. The main change at the top concerned defending champion Cadel Evans of Australia. He was passed by BMC teammate Van Garderen despite a three-minute head start and fell one spot to seventh in the overall standings. Wiggins has been the odds-on favorite to win after showing dazzling form with three stage-race victories this season. He was fourth in the 2009 Tour and 24th in 2010. He crashed out last year. This Tour has been about as favorable as it comes for Wiggins: the three-time Olympic track champion is among the worldÂ’s best time-trial riders. ASSOCIATED PRESSBradley Wiggins of Britain, wearing the overall leaderÂ’ s yellow jersey, bows to cheering spectators on the podi um of the 19th stage of the the Tour de France cycling race, an indi vidual time trial over 33.2 miles with start in Bonneval and finish in Chartres, France on Saturday.

By TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressCORAL GABLES Â— Miami coach Al GoldenÂ’s second season at the school is beginning much like his first one, with new accu-sations of rule breaking, the looming threat of seri-ous NCAA sanctions and no apparent end in sight for the long probe into the HurricanesÂ’ compliance practices. Citing unidentified sources, Yahoo Sports reported Friday that former Miami football employee Sean Allen Â— who has been linked to one-time booster and now convicted Ponzi scheme architect Nevin Shapiro through the improperbenefits scandal that broke last year Â— assisted mem-bers of GoldenÂ’s coaching staff with recruiting. If true, that could be a major NCAA violation by the troubled program, despite GoldenÂ’s repeated insistence that he wants to Â“get it fixed.Â” Â“The inferences and suggestions in the Yahoo Sports story that my con-duct was anything but ethical are simply false.Â” Golden also said that he has been a college foot-ball coach for more than 18 years and stands by his record of compliance. Earlier Friday, two people with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that NCAA investigators visited Miami for sev-eral days earlier this month, just the latest round of the lengthy inquiry into the HurricanesÂ’ athletic depart-ment. The people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because infor-mation about the probe has not been publicly released. ShapiroÂ’s claims that he provided dozens of Miami athletes and recruits with extra benefits over an eight-year span were published by Yahoo Sports last August. Golden is scheduled to discuss the coming sea-son at the Atlantic Coast Conference media days in North Carolina next week. A significant portion of ShapiroÂ’s allegations from last year revolved around Allen, who was an assis-tant football equipment manager until leaving the program last year. Shapiro said he gave Allen more than $200,000, most alleg-edly spent on players and recruits, as well as a luxu-ry car. Allen denied those claims to Yahoo Sports in 2011, and has not respond-ed to interview requests from the AP ShapiroÂ’s attorney, Maria Elena Perez, also did not immediately respond to requests for comment Friday. She deposed Allen late last year, shortly before court records showed Miami entered into an agreement with a bankruptcy trustee to return $83,000 it said it received Â“directly and indi-rectlyÂ” from Shapiro. Miami has been bracing for additional allegations, and was aware earlier this week that they were com-ing. In an e-mail obtained by AP university President Donna Shalala told trustees Thursday that Â“someone who had a low level position at one timeÂ” was expected to allege that Miami assis-tant coach and former NFL player Micheal Barrow committed recruiting viola-tions. Shalala said it has already been investigated. Yahoo Sports reported Friday that Allen tried to aid both Barrow and assis-tant Aubrey Hill, now wide receivers coach and recruit-ing coordinator at Florida.Special to the ReporterThe Lake City Tigers won the annual Goodwill Games basketball championship at Richardson Community Center on June 29-July 1. Lake City went 3-0 in pool play with wins over Live Oak, Gainesville High and Santa Fe High. In the championship semifinal, Lake City faced Eastside High and pulled out a two-point win. Lake City came from behind to beat Palataka in the championship game. The Tigers struggled in the first half, mainly because of the physical play of Palatka on defense. PalatkaÂ’s defense forced the Tigers to turn the ball over and take a lot of bad shots on offense. Â“At halftime I told the guys that we had to take control of the game, relax more on offense and make sure we take care of the basketball and not have as many turnovers,Â” coach VC Coppock said. Down by nine with five minutes left in the game, Lake City played aggressive defense and forced Palatka to turn the ball over. The Tigers took the lead and went on to claim a five-point win. Lake City scorers: Morris Marshall 19, Akeem Williams 13, Tae Foster 11, Dakarry Rossin 10, Melton Sanders 8, Tre Simmons 3. The Lake City-Eastside game went back and forth in the first half. The Tigers would go on a run, then Eastside would counter with its own run. Eastside led 38-36 at the half. The tempo didnÂ’t slow down in the second half. Both teams traded baskets, until the Tigers took a two-point lead with one minute left to play and held on. Â“This game had to be the best of the tournament, with the physical play from both teams and the fast-paced offense,Â” Coppock said. Lake City scorers: Sanders 17, Simmons 13, Marshall 13, Foster 11, Williams 4, Rossin 4, Michael Fluellen 2. On day two of the tournament, Lake City got a 20-point victory over Gainesville and a 30-point win over Santa Fe. Â“The guys really played great, almost like they were playing perfect team basketball,Â” Coppock said. Â“They executed all our offensive sets really well, and applied great pressure on the defensive end that forced our opponents to turn the ball over a lot. Â“The addition of Morris really helped the team. He showed why heÂ’s ranked in the top 20 in the state in the class of 2013.Â” Lake City scorers against Santa Fe: Marshall 16, Sanders 15, Fluellen 12, Rossin 10, Simmons 9, Williams 7, Marquise Harrell 7, Foster 2. Lake City faced rival Live Oak in FridayÂ’s opening round. The Tigers started on a 15-4 run in the first half, but the game took a turn after that. Live OakÂ’s Jimmy Taylor, possibly the best player in the area, kicked it into another gear and went on a scoring spree to cut the TigersÂ’ lead to 26-24 at the half. The game stayed close in the second half, but at the end critical rebounds by Rossin after a couple of misses at the free-throw line helped the Tigers hold on to a 61-60 victory. Â“The guys played hard, but we were trying as a team to get the chemistry together with the addition of Morris Marshall to the team,Â” Coppock said. The Goodwill Games champions are coaches by Coppock, Justin Rayford and Chris Carodine. Â“The guys showed me how much they matured during the season in this tournament,Â” Coppock said. Â“I was so proud of the play-ers for winning this tourna-ment and showing me how confident and determine they were to win. Â“I would like to thank the players and coaches for all their hard work and dedica-tion this summer. Special thanks to the parents and Deidra Rossin for putting this team together and making everything possi-ble to travel and participate in many tournaments this summer.Â” Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JULY 22, 2012 5B%6SRUWV Lake City wins Goodwill Games COURTESY PHOTOThe Lake City Tigers won the Goodwill Games basketball championship hosted by Richardson Community Center.

BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City Reporter Columbia High broke into an impromptu conditioning session after a scrimmage against Bartram Trail on Friday. guys last year and while theyre still well coached, theyre probably not going to be quite as good this year. Then you look at Gainesville and they left a good impression from what we saw. They look good and were going to prepare for a tough game. Shoup enjoyed seeing where his offense was after a summer during his first year as the teams offensive coordinator. Its nice to play against Lakeland and Bartram Trail, he said. It kind of tells us how we stack. Were right with everyone. I feel we were able to move the ball successfully. Theres definitely areas that I think we need to improve on, but we werent outclassed by anybody. The defense played solid all week and I expect them to help us win every Friday. You could hear from the coaches on other teams that they felt like CHS was back on the right track and were mak ing drastic improvements. Shoup was most impressed with his running game during this weeks camp. We had a very good run game behind (Braxton) Stockton, (Ronald) Timmons and (Lonnie) Underwood, Shoup said. We also had (Rakeem) Battle and (Trey) Marshall coming over from the defense to give us a few carries. With four of our five guys returning along the offensive line, the run ning game is going to show up. We should see a huge improvement with our run ning game. While Allen feels like the receiving corps may be one of the teams stronger units this year after struggling last season, Shoup says he can still see some areas the group has to improve upon. Theyre coming along, he said. We still have to improve. But both coaches had high praise for quarterback Jayce Barber and new No. 2 quarterback Jake Thomas an incoming freshman. Hes grew a lot, Shoup said. Hes a bright spot along with our running game. Shoup credited Darren Birch with opening holes all week. On the defensive side, it was the usual suspects gaining praise, starting with Marshall. He was solid all week, Allen said. A lot of people were up and down, but he was consistent. Felix Woods was also consistent. And Allen saw plenty of things he like with Shoups offense as well. Timmons and Underwood ran the ball real well, he said. Jayce was throwing well. Weve got to get better along the offensive line a big, but we have a solid running game. Were solid at running back and tackle. We just have to build up some help around the tackles.
By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comT he Columbia County Tourist Development Council is recommending a one percent increase to the local bed tax to generate additional funds for capital improve-ments at the Southside Recreation Complex. Columbia County currently assesses a three-percent bed tax, where three cents from each dollar paid by a hotel and campground proprietor goes to the TDC. The increase would make it a four percent bed tax for Columbia County. The TDC is proposing to pay $1,704,355 from bed tax revenue to make capital improvements at Southside Recreation Complex. The Board of County Commissioners may contribute $1,123,352 towards the improve-ments. There are 30 fields at the Southside Recreation Sports Complex: 13 base-ball fields, eight baseball fields, four adult softball fields and five soccer fields. In addition to local league and recreation play, the complex hosts 22-25 sports tournaments annually. Harvey Campbell, Columbia County Tourist Development Council director of tourism, said the proposed one percent increase in the bed tax would generate an esti-mated $200,000 annually. Â“The largest portion of the funding would be used to cover the TDCÂ’s obligations of improve-ments at the Southside Recreation Complex,Â” Campbell said. According to the Columbia County Tourist Development Tax Collections report from the Florida Department of Revenue, Columbia County collected $612,607 in bed tax rev-enue in 2011. The county began levying a two percent bed tax Dec. 1, 1984. An addition-al one percent levy was added to the bed tax May 1, 1991. The tax expired July 31, 1994, but was re-imposed April 1, 2010. The tax currently doesnÂ’t have an expiration date. Bed tax revenue is primarily generated by visitors to the area, people who stay in local hotels and motels, camp-grounds and potentially people who rent property for less than six months. The TDC is proposing to upgrade lights at the complex in the amount of $615,000 and upgrade concession stands and restrooms with Split Face Block at a cost of $4,500 for each combination rest-room/concession stand building. The upgrades also call for a potential change from shingle roof on three buildings at a cost of $7,200 each for a screw-down metal roof and an additional $12,500 for a standing seam metal roof. Safety netting, shade systems for the bleachers and a new parking lot is also included in the list of capital improvements for the facility. The county commission has budgeted an estimated $237,000 in its 2012-2013 fiscal budget for the lighting with the TDC to pay the remaining $388,000 for the purchase of Musco Lighting at the fields. Â“The ballfields are good, but this (funding) takes it to the next level,Â” Campbell said. Â“Even without the tournaments, we need additional con-cession stands and restrooms, ADA compliant sidewalks and most of the bleachers over there are older donÂ’t have guard-rails.Â” County officials are scheduled to vote on the TDC recommendation in the near future.

CHAMBER BUSINESS Dennille Deckerdennille@lakecitychamber.com CHAMBER continued on 2CSouthside rec upgrades may come courtesy bed tax hikeBy RODRIQUE NGOWIAssociated PressBOSTON Â— The next time your car hits a pothole, a new technology could help you immediately tell someone who can do some-thing about it. Boston officials are testing an app called Street Bump that allows drivers to automati-cally report the road hazards to the city as soon as they hear that unfortunate Â“thud,Â” with their smartphones doing all the work. The appÂ’s developers say their work has already sparked interest from other cities in the U.S., Europe, Africa and elsewhere that are imagining other ways to harness the tech-nology. Before they even start their trip, drivers using Street Bump fire up the app, then set their smartphones either on the dashboard or in a cup holder. The app takes care of the rest, using the phoneÂ’s accelerometer Â— a motion-detector Â— to sense when a bump is hit. GPS records the location, and the phone transmits it to a remote servers hosted by Amazon Inc.Â’s Web services division. The system filters out things like manhole covers and speed bump using a series of algorithms Â— including one that can tell if the initial motion is up over a speed bump, as opposed to down into a pothole. If at least three people hit a bump in the same spot, the system recognizes it as a pothole. As in many northern cities, potholes are a POTHOLES continued on 2C App detects potholes, alerts officials JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterXenia Davidoff (right), the front desk clerk, assists Peggy Baker, of Destin, with her luggage as Baker checks in.

real problem for Boston, where crews patch about 19,000 of them a year fol-lowing the annual freeze-thaw cycle, according to Matthew Mayrl, chief of staff in the cityÂ’s public works department. Â“So you can imagine that driving 806 miles of roadway and getting an accurate count of where every pothole is a gigantic task,Â” he said. City officials hope the app might eventually allow them to save money by creating a real-time map of potholes that need to be fixed and eliminating the need to send out city trucks or contract an engi-neering company to troll hundreds of miles of road-ways looking for damage. Â“What this technology allows us to do Â— because we imagine dozens and hundreds and possibly thousands of people using it Â— it essentially creates a new way for people to donate their data in solv-ing public-good challeng-es,Â” said Nigel Jacob, co-chairman of the Boston MayorÂ’s Office of New Urban Mechanics, which manages the project. Street Bump is different from BostonÂ’s first app, Citizen Connect, which required users to actively send a text of tweet, visit a website or call a 24-hour hotline to report a pot-hole or other nuisances. Other cities, including Honolulu, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Columbus, Ohio, have encouraged residents to report potholes using Facebook, Twitter, or spe-cial apps that allow resi-dents to request city ser-vices using their smart-phones. Street Bump became available for free in the iTunes store in June, and experts are working on the Android version. Jacob said Â“a couple of hundredÂ” of users have downloaded the app so far, and developers are still trying to figure out how many will be needed to make the software more useful. The projectÂ’s next big phase, he said, will be expanding the app to other cities in a couple of months and beginning to analyze the data to figure out ways to refine the app Authorities intend to launch a campaign on social and other media to encourage more people to use the app, Jacob said, adding that the details have yet to be worked out. Street Bump, which cost a total of $45,000 from Boston city cof-fers and insurer Liberty Mutual Group Inc. to develop the prototype and award experts a prize to craft ways filter out false positives, was conceived by JacobÂ’s office and developed by Worcester Polytechnic Institute pro-fessor Fabio Carrera, with help from a group heÂ’s working with at the Santa Fe Complex, a commu-nity organization in New Mexico. The first version collected lots of data but couldnÂ’t differentiate between pot-holes and other bumps. So InnoCentive Inc., a Waltham, Mass., crowd-sourcing firm, threw the challenge out to a net-work of 400,000 experts and offered them a share of $25,000 in prize money donated by Liberty Mutual. In the end, ideas were incorporated from three places Â— a group of hack-ers in Somerville, Mass., that promotes community education and research; the head of the mathemat-ics department at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Mich.; and a software engineer who did not want to be identi-fied. There has been so much interest from other cities in the U.S. and abroad that Boston is prepar-ing to release the code to the public by the end of the summer so others can tweak the software for their needs. Proposals include using it for early detection of earthquakes and creating a Â“black boxÂ” for police cruisers that could show whether a vehicle was stationary or moving before a crash to stop people who hit parked police cars from claiming officers crashed into them. Â“I think people are really interested in the concept,Â” Jacob said. Â“Right now, the feedback weÂ’ve gotten is ... Â‘Very interesting app, how do we use it in our city?Â’Â” 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 22, 2012 2CBIZ/MOTLEY Within a marriage, a man and a womanÂ’s QDQFLDOFLUFXPVWDQFHVDUHJHQHUDOO\SUHWW\PXFKHTXDO%XWLIDGLYRUFHRFFXUVWKHZRPDQVVLWXDWLRQWHQGVWREHVRPHZKDWPRUHFKDOOHQJLQJWKDQWKDWRIKHUH[VSRXVH$QGWKDWVZK\GXULQJWKLVPDMRUOLIHWUDQVLWLRQ\RXPD\ZDQWWRPHHWZLWKDSURIHVVLRQDOQDQFLDODGYLVRUWRJRRYHU\RXUVSHQGLQJQHHGVDQG\RXUFDVKRZVRWKDW\RXNQRZZKDW\RXDEVROXWHO\QHHGWRGD\DQGKRZ\RXFDQSODQIRUWRPRUURZ%XWEHIRUHZHJHWLQWRVRPHSRVVLEOHVWHSV\RXFDQWDNHOHWVORRNDWVRPHRIWKHUHDVRQVWKDWZRPHQPD\IDUHZRUVHWKDQPHQQDQFLDOO\VSHDNLQJIROORZLQJDGLYRUFH Â• Lower income 7KHDYHUDJHZRPDQV IDPLO\LQFRPHGURSVE\DIWHUGLYRUFHDFFRUGLQJWRWKH86&HQVXV%XUHDX$QGLQPDQ\FDVHVGLYRUFHH[DFHUEDWHVDVLWXDWLRQLQZKLFKZRPHQZHUHDOUHDG\WUDLOLQJPHQLQHDUQLQJV,QIDFWZRPHQVWLOORQO\HDUQFHQWVIRUHDFKGROODUHDUQHGE\PHQDFFRUGLQJWRWKH86%XUHDXRI/DERU6WDWLVWLFV Â• Smaller retirement accounts 7KHDYHUDJH EDODQFHRQZRPHQVGHQHGFRQWULEXWLRQSODQVVXFKDVNSODQVLVRQO\SHUFHQWRIPHQVDYHUDJHEDODQFHVDFFRUGLQJWR/,05$DQDQFLDOVHUYLFHVUHVHDUFKRUJDQL]DWLRQ2IFRXUVHDYHUDJHVDUHMXVWWKDWDYHUDJHV%XWZKHWKHU\RXUHFRJQL]H\RXUVHOILQWKHDERYHQXPEHUVRUQRWFRQVLGHUWKHVHVXJJHVWLRQV Create an emergency fund. 7U\WRSXWVL[ PRQWKVWRD\HDUVZRUWKRIOLYLQJH[SHQVHVLQDOLTXLGDFFRXQW2QFH\RXYHHVWDEOLVKHGWKLVHPHUJHQF\IXQG\RXZRQWKDYHWRGLSLQWRORQJWHUPLQYHVWPHQWVWRSD\IRUXQH[SHFWHGFRVWVVXFKDVDQH[SHQVLYHFDUUHSDLUDQHZIXUQDFHRUDODUJHPHGLFDOELOO Contribute as much as you can afford to your retirement accounts.

Â“trading at a multiple of 10.Â”) You can calculate P/E ratios based on EPS for last year, this year or future years. Published P/E ratios generally reflect past performance. Intelligent investors should really focus on future prospects by calcu-lating forward-looking P/E ratios. Simply divide the current stock price by the coming yearsÂ’ expected EPS. Compare a companyÂ’s current P/E to its historical range, too. Many investors seek stocks with low P/E ratios, as they can indicate beaten-down companies that may rebound. But remember that a low-P/E stock can always fall further. And donÂ’t just fall for a seemingly low P/E, as P/Es vary by industry. Car manufactur-ers and banks typically have low P/Es (often in the single digits), while software and Internet-related companies command higher ones (often north of 30). DonÂ’t stop your research with a stockÂ’s P/E. There are many other numbers to examine when study-ing a stock Â— such as its sales and earnings growth rates, debt level and profit margins. Compare com-panies to their competitors, too. K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ Investing in 3-DIf youÂ’re seeking stocks that offer more risk and possible reward than a typical blue-chip, consider 3-D printing pioneer 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD). ItÂ’s a market leader in an emerging technology, with only one serious competitor at the moment, Stratasys (Nasdaq: SSYS), which recently merged with Objet, 3-D printingÂ’s third major player. 3DÂ’s revenue, net income and free cash flow have all been trending solidly upward. 3D Systems is making a major push for the home user. Its plug-and-play printer and community model is the first of its kind. The Cube (and its Cubify.com commu-nity) is similar to Hewlett-PackardÂ’s successful razor-and-blade-style printers-and-ink model. Scale mat-ters with such a model, though, so 3D Systems will need to appeal to more than the hobbyists. The companyÂ’s other products and services encompass medical uses, aerospace applications and more, and its service revenues are increasing at a rapid clip. With big potential comes big risks, and 3D Systems is not risk-free. Profit margin has been shrink-ing recently, and the company remains largely dependent on cor-porate clients such as automakers or defense contractors, which are fac-ing tough times of their own. 3D Systems isnÂ’t cheap, but it might reward long-term investors. (The Fool owns shares of 3D Sys-tems, and its newsletters have rec-ommended it and Stratasys.)

Â— B.A., Hilton Head Island, S.C. The Fool Responds: Those who bought GE in the $30s have indeed been burned, but if theyÂ’ve hung on, their losses (which are not yet realized, since they havenÂ’t sold) have shrunk. The stock was recently trading around $20. The companyÂ’s future is prom-ising, too, as it invests in alternative energies and its core businesses. Its GE Capital unit, which got whacked in the recent credit crisis, has turned itself around and will resume paying dividends to the parent company. GEÂ’s stock has sported a dividend yield above 3 percent lately, too. With GE and also with your setting sell limits too high, your errors might have been avoided if youÂ’d tried to determine what your various stocks were really worth. With overvalued ones, con-sider selling or not buying, or be prepared for a dip in the price. If youÂ’re planning to hold great com-panies for decades, simply expect temporary downturns.Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

LIFE Sunday, July 22, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Story ideas?ContactRobert BridgesEditor754email@example.com Lake City Reporter1DLIFE GARDEN TALK Nichelle Demorestdndemorest@ufl.edu R ecently accom-panied by Lydia Dudley from Richmond, Va. and Kimberlynne Norman, we took a drive to Alachua to visit an old favorite, Conestogas. Owned by Rick and Donna Robertson, Conestogas has been in Alachua for 24 years. It now takes up four store fronts and has that appealing western theme throughout. The dcor features old photos, horse collars, wagon parts, framed cowboy prints, sombreros and serapes. There is a wonderful large stained glass window by local artist, Linn Check, depicting an almost life size Â“Miss KittyÂ”. You definitely get in the mood for some good Â“grubÂ” by the time you sit down and peruse the menu. Conestogas cuts their own steaks and grinds their own hamburger meat and you can tell that they do. You can choose your favorite cut whether itÂ’s a sirloin, rib-eye, filet mignon or NY strip cooked to your desired doneness. Various seafood and chicken items are also offered but we stuck with the beef. Cooked to perfection at 400 degrees, the delectable steaks are sprinkled with garlic salt and black pepper during the grilling process. Just the smell alone, makes you want to add this restaurant to your Â“come back and visit soonÂ” list. There are interesting salads if you want a lighter choice. Be warned, they arenÂ’t small. Some of the choices are the Santa Fe Salad (sliced chicken breast of a bed of lettuce, loaded with veggies and corn strips) Taco Salad (a south of the border favorite), Wagoneer (let-tuce and veggies topped with sliced grilled sirloin), and RickÂ’s Cheeseburger Salad (seasoned ground beef and cheddar plus the usual salad fixinÂ’s. There are lots of chicken dishes, sandwiches, hoagies, mixed grill, and numer-ous side choices including sweet potato fries, Gator choker baked potato, broc-coli, green beans and our favoriteÂ… their own home fries. Now itÂ’s time to talk about the burgers. The one everyone talks about is the Stogie Burger. Fresh ground beef cooked to order on a large toasted bun with all the trimmings, it is so big that the burger hangs over the bun. Served with one side, it is $9.99 and if youÂ’ve got the appetite for it and the hands big enough to hold it, go for it! Our choice was the Jr. Stogie Burger ($7.99) which is the same but just a wee bit smaller. ItÂ’s hard to describe the taste other than to say, it tastes like hamburgers used to taste before fro-zen, mass produced discs became the norm for us. Just take it slow and easy and savor a good olÂ’ fash-ioned burger. Our favorite side of hash browns arenÂ’t your frozen kind. These are made there and are large chunks of potatoes browned with peppers and onions and are the best side choice you can make. Needless to say we had had Â“a sufficiencyÂ” but since we were going to write a review, we indulged in one of the homemade desserts. We chose the Black Magic Oreo pie to share. Oh my, it was won-derful. Chocolate crushed Oreo crust, topped with vanilla ice cream, topped with chocolate sauce, topped with crumbled Oreos then topped with whipped cream and driz-zled with chocolate sauce. Simple, yet absolutely delicious. Other dessert choices are Champagne cake, key lime pie, Milky Way pie, Snickers pie, etc. etc. Conestogas is open Monday Â– Saturday and opens at 11:00 a.m. Telephone number is 386 462-1294 and 1295. If you want to know what the Daily Specials are call 386 462-8133. They are located at 14920 Main St. Alachua, Fl. 32615. Once you get to Alachua, you canÂ’t miss it on Main St. There is a red half wagon wheel awning and cypress benches with wagon wheel out front. UPDATE: The recent Taste Buddy article, Odds and Ends, included update information regarding restaurant closures. BubÂ’s Hot Dogs was listed as closed. We received a call from BubÂ’s owner, Vernon, with updated information. BubÂ’s has moved to LoweÂ’s Tube Land in Ft. White for the summer. BubÂ’s will move back to Lake City after Labor Day and occupy the same location. The new phone number is (386) 628-1488. Genie Norman and Mary Kay HollingsworthTasteBuddiesLakeCity@gmail.com TASTE BUDDIES Taste Buddies check out Conestogas H ave you ever grown a flower-ing vine on a trellis or fence? This is called vertical gardening and peo-ple use this form of growing for a number of reasons. Maybe you were screening an undesirable view of your compost pile or a view of the neighborÂ’s trash cans. Making an unsightly fence or wall look nicer, or just hid-ing something ugly is often the job of the flowering vine in a landscape setting. There are other functions for vines that you may want to consider. Small outdoor spaces can use some upward movement, especially if there is no room for small trees or shrubs for vertical accent. Trellised flowering vines make great outdoor dividers, separating the play area from the dog run, for instance. Or you can use containerized Â‘living wallsÂ’ to create an outdoor dining room. Some of the vines that thrive in North Florida have such lovely flowers that you might just look for places to grow them to enjoy the flower show. Look around for appropriate vertical sur-faces to grow these beauties, surfaces such as poles or lamp posts, porch lattices or supports, fences, trellises, tree trunks, or bare walls. Many vines are evergreen which make them functional and pretty all year. Most flowering vines thrive in full sunlight or partial shade and donÂ’t tolerate soggy soils. Water is needed regularly until the roots are well estab-lished. Although these vines can tolerate drought, once per week watering is still recommended. Upkeep is minimal and even pruning is seldom needed except to keep growth in bounds. To grow upright in the landscape, vines need some type of support. Vines trail upward by climbing, twin-ing, or winding. By knowing how your new vine climbs, you can provide the proper support for it. Similarly, if you already have a particular support to be covered, pur-chase the plant best suited to do the job for you. Clinging vines have rootlets that will adhere to rough surfaces such as trees, bricks and wood. Care should be taken because these roots can damage painted and mortar surfaces. Several attractive native vines to consider are Coral Honeysuckle, Purple Passionflower, and Trumpet Creeper. These vines also provide food for butterflies and hummingbirds, and they look great when used with other native plants like grasses, perennials, saw pal-mettos and shrubs. If you are curious about these and other North Florida vines, read Â‘Flowering Vines for FloridaÂ’ at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/mg097 or call the UF Master Gardeners at 752-5384. Manyfunctionsfor vines Q D. Nichelle Demorest is a horticulture agent with the Columbia County Extension of the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.From staff reportsA Lake City teen was elected to a top party position during the 69th Florida American Legion Boys State July 8-13. Andrew Johnson, 2012 Boys State Delegate, was elected by his peers to serve as chairman of the Nationalist Party during mock legislative sessions on the campus of Florida State University in Tallahassee. Johnson is a rising senior at the Columbia High School and the son of Tyson and Kathy Johnson. Â“Boys State was an absolutely amazing experience,Â” Johnson said. Â“To be around the best and brightest of the state of Florida was not only extremely humbling but it led to friendships that can last a lifetime,Â” he said. At Boys State, delegates are assigned to one of two generic political parties: the Federalists and the Nationalists. Each party, once organized by county caucuses, meets in a statewide convention format to select nominees for statewide office, develop a party platform, and create an election strategy. Johnson was selected by the Nationalists to head-up their statewide effort which included serving as spokes-man for the party, organizing leadership, and shepherding the partyÂ’s platform toward a consensus. Â“Andrew is an awesome example of whatÂ’s right with todayÂ’s youth,Â” said Boys State Director and Lake City resident George Wehrli. Â“He represented Lake City and Columbia High School well in this session of Boys State and gained the respect of his peers, not just as the Nationalist Party Chair, but as a leader without labels,Â” Wehrli said. The Florida Department of the American Legion has sponsored Boys State since 1940. During the weeklong events associated with Boys State, 530 delegates can earn dual enrollment course credit through a partnership with Tallahassee Community College. Delegates are instructed in Florida law, history, and government. In addition, stu-dents create a 51st state with cities, coun-ties and a three-branch state government. They also publish a daily newspaper, pro-duce a television news program and learn leadership qualities through teamwork exercises. Hundreds of Boys State delegates from Columbia County have been sponsored by local American Legion posts since 1940. Lake City resident Kyle Keen, a 1993 Boys State graduate, served as coun-selor for the Federalist Party this year. In 1948, Tommy Ives was elected Boys State Governor, the only Columbia County citizen ever to hold the position. Local teen claims high honor Andrew Johnson will participate in the 69th Florida Amer ican Legion Boys State, July 8-13. COURTESY NEW YORK (AP) Â— BroadwayÂ’s newest Little Orphan Annie has found her Sandy. The award-winning animal trainer William Berloni on Thursday unveiled the pooch who is slated to star in the Broadway revival of the Tony Award-winning musical Â“AnnieÂ” Â— Sunny, a 2-year-old female terrier mix rescued from a city pound in Houston. Â“The most talented animals are right there under your nose,Â” said Berloni, who makes it a point of using shelter dogs in all his proj-ects. Â“The message is: Animals in shelters are not damaged, just unfortunate.Â” Sunny was only 24 hours away from being euthanized four months ago when Berloni spotted her photo online while conduct-ing a nationwide search for Sandy. She had been mislabeled as male and given the name Bruno. Touched, he forwarded her photo to one of the showÂ’s producers, Arielle Tepper Madover, who wrote back, Â“Save her. I donÂ’t care what it costs.Â” Â“So I adopted her sight-unseen,Â” said Berloni. Â“I didnÂ’t think she was a candidate for Sandy. Her description was so sweet and she looked very much like the original Sandy that we were just saving her to find her a home.Â” Sunny was shipped to New York and came muzzle-to-face with Berloni. Â“I met her and went, Â‘Wow, she could really be a candi-date,Â’Â” he said. Â“SheÂ’s going to be fantastic.Â” Â“Annie,Â” starring 11-year-old Lilla Crawford in the title role and Katie Finneran as Miss Hannigan, will begin previews on Oct. 3 at the Palace Theatre and will open on Nov. 8. Berloni, whose extensive Broadway credits include training animals for Â“Legally Blonde,Â” Â‘Â’Joe TurnerÂ’s Come and Gone,Â” Â‘Â’Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,Â” Â‘Â’Awake and SingÂ” and Â“The Wizard of Oz,Â” began working as an animal train-er when he plucked the original Sandy in Â“AnnieÂ” from a shelter in 1976 for $7 the day before it was to be euthanized. He chuckles that his career has come full circle with the new Pup to play in Â‘AnnieÂ’ revealed Lilla Crawford, who will play the role of Annie, and Â“Su nnyÂ” who will play the role of Sandy, in the new Broadway production of Annie. P reviews begin October 3 and opening night is November 8 at the Palace Theatre. ASSOCIATED PRESSANNIE continued on 6D
2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JULY 22, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 2DLIFE ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) Alaskans again this summer are wonder ing: Where are the king salmon? Some of Alaskas larg est and best rivers are closed to king fishing because state and federal fisheries managers have determined that the larg est of the salmon species, also called Chinook, arent showing up in enough numbers to ensure sustain able future runs. In western Alaska, people living in dozens of villages along the Yukon and Kuskokwim rivers are turning to less desirable salmon species fish with lower oil and fat con tent to fill their freezers for winter in what one official described as a sum mer of food insecurity. It is pretty scary, said Timothy Andrew, director of natural resources with the Association of Village Council Presidents in Bethel. Chinook salmon is probably the biggest species that people depend on for drying, salting and putting away in the freezer to feed the family through out the winter. Fishery managers pre dict that this years Yukon River king salmon run will be worse than last year, and that was the worst showing for Chinook in 30 years. Commercial fisher men on the Yukon and Kuskokwim are turning to less desirable but more plentiful species of salmon that sell for under $1 a pound. King salmon sells for more than $5 a pound. With gas costing $6.70 a gallon in Bethel, many fishing boats are sitting idle, he said. People living in the regions 56 villages are devastated, Andrew said. It is an incredibly stressful time, he said. In mid-July, the Kenai River considered by many to be Alaskas pre mier river for salmon fish ing is normally crowded and chaotic with fishing guides steering their boats to give their clients the best opportunity to catch a trophy king. But a ban on king fish ing on the Kenai and Kasilof rivers went into effect Thursday. Robert Begich, the Alaska Department of Fish and Games area manage ment biologist, said the Kenai king run looks to be the lowest on record going back to the 1980s. While the continued downward trend in kings isnt clear, Begich suspects a combination of factors, with researchers looking more closely at changes in the ocean environment. King salmon usually spend several years in the ocean before returning to rivers to spawn. Ray Beamesderfer, a consultant with Cramer Fish Sciences in Gresham, Ore., also suspects chang es in the marine environ ment. He thought he and his family would be fishing for king salmon on the Kenai River on Thursday. Instead, they were casting for rainbow trout or small er sockeye salmon. Beamesderfer said in the late 1970s, there was a change in ocean currents that favored Alaska salmon but contributed to poor salmon runs in the Pacific Northwest. That situation appears to be reversing, with a change in ocean currents, he said. We have seen some better runs in recent years, Beamesderfer said. But he said the per sistent downturn in king salmon cant be fully explained by a change in ocean currents, especially when other salmon species in Alaska are thriving. It doesnt seem to be that simple, Beamesderfer said. Jeff Regnert, director of the commercial fisher ies division for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, also said something different in the marine environment likely holds the answer to the down turn in kings. That is probably where we will see the change, he said. Fishermen crowd together as they jostle for position on the Kenai River in Kenai, Alaska. The state is shutting down king salmon fishing on the famed Kenai River. July 19 marked the end of salmon fishing on the river. Alaskans wonder where the king salmon have gone ASSOCIATED PRESS SEAL HARBOR, Maine (AP) Some of Maines most popular destinations are locat ed on Mount Desert Island, including Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. But the island is also home to several remarkable gardens, all connected to the renowned landscape architect Beatrix Farrand, whose philosophy of garden design emphasized native plants and using natural landscapes to define outdoor spaces. One of the gardens, the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Garden in Seal Harbor, is a private garden thats open to the public, by reservation only, just a few days a year. But the other two, Thuya Garden and Asticou Azalea Garden in Northeast Harbor, which contain plants from Farrands Bar Harbor home, welcome visitors daily for much of the spring, summer and fall. All three gardens use natural settings so artfully that its sometimes hard to tell where the landscaping ends and nature begins. Farrand, the sole woman among the founders of the American Society of Landscape Architects, was born in New York in 1872 and died in Bar Harbor in 1959. She designed gardens for the White House, consulted at Princeton and other institutions, and had many prominent pri vate clients, including John D. Rockefeller Jr. and his wife Abby. Farrand worked with Abby Rockefeller to design the private garden in Seal Harbor between 1926 and 1930. The prop erty is still owned by the Rockefeller fami ly. Each summer, the garden opens to the public one day a week, but reservations fill up fast. As of mid-July, only a handful of slots were left for late August and early September. And theres no sneaking in: To be admitted, your name must be on a checklist at the entrance, which is virtu ally unmarked and hard to find even with directions. Photos are permitted only for personal use. Once inside, most visitors head to the rectangular lawn, where the borders burst with colorful flowers and plants familiar to any backyard gardener, from bright purple clematis vines to gray-green dusty miller. But in some ways the Rockefeller garden is at its most stunning away from the sunny flower beds, where the landscaping melts into the woods. Forested paths are carpeted by velvety moss; giant hostas and feath ery ferns offer contrasting textures and a palette of greens. A stone wall punctuated by doorways shaped like the full moon or a bottle give the feeling of stepping into a secret garden hidden in a magical forest. The property also displays centuries-old Asian art, ranging from Buddhas to tall stone figures lining the walkways. David Bennett, a landscape architect in Washington D.C., has visited the Rockefeller garden as part of his research for restoration of Farrands kitchen garden at The Mount, the country estate in Lenox, Mass., created by Farrands aunt, writer Edith Wharton. Bennett says Farrand wanted her gardens to fit into their natural settings. She had a strong appreciation for the natural character of the land and the appropriate way of integrating a designed landscape with its natural context. She used plants to create impression istic effects of texture and color, and was also known for creating outdoor garden rooms, with the idea of moving through a landscape in a sequence, from one space to another, where each space has its own character, Bennett said. One space may be very shady and enclosed, and you pass through a hedge or a row of trees or through an actual gate in a wall to enter a very sunny and open space. The Thuya and Asticou gardens, easily found along Route 3 in the neighboring town of Northeast Harbor, both include plants from Farrands Bar Harbor estate, called Reef Point, which Farrand sold in the mid-1950s. The azaleas at Asticou are finished blooming by summer, but Asticous landscaped pond is a star attraction in all seasons. The garden was created in 1956 by Charles K. Savage, who owned the nearby Asticou Inn. The picture-perfect pond reflects the surrounding flowers and trees like a mirror, and the layers of greenery and contrasting shapes and textures look like a Japanese landscape painting. Savage also designed Thuya Garden, where the centerpiece consists of spectacular rows of colorful flowers, from towering blue larkspur to delicate pink and white snapdragons bordering a rectangular lawn. Those interested in learning more about Farrand can also visit Garland Farm on Route 3 near Bar Harbor, which this summer started offering regular visiting hours for the first time, Thursday afternoons through Sept. 13. Farrand retired to Garland Farm after dismantling Reef Point, bringing plants and ornaments with her and designing her last gardens there. Garland Farm is also home to the Beatrix Farrand Society, which just completed restoration of Farrands terrace garden at Garland Farm and is working on restoring other areas there. Alvion Kimball, who owns the Orland House Bed & Breakfast about 40 miles from Seal Harbor and is on the board of DownEast & Acadia Regional Tourism, says each of the gardens has its own charms. At the Rockefeller property, he likes the mossy garden best, while the impressive show of flowers at Thuya is like an English cottage garden. The garden at Garland Farm is a more personal garden, on a smaller, intimate scale, but Asticou with its pretty pond and walkways is his favorite, even without the azaleas in bloom. Its just so understated, peaceful and quiet, he said. Kimball notes that Farrands preference for indigenous plants and natural settings, rather than exotic specimens or rearranged landscapes, was ahead of her time. You look at whats happening today with native plants and ecology, he said, and to me, its almost an extension of what shed be doing if she were still here.

Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JULY 22, 2012 3D3DLIFEHOUSTON (AP) Â— Through a labyrinth of hallways deep inside a 1960s-era building that has housed research that dates back to the early years of U.S. space travel, a group of scientists in white coats is stirring, mixing, measuring, brushing and, most important, tasting the end result of their cooking. Their mission: Build a menu for a planned journey to Mars in the 2030s. The menu must sustain a group of six to eight astronauts, keep them healthy and happy and also offer a broad array of food. ThatÂ’s no simple feat considering it will likely take six months to get to the Red Planet, astronauts will have to stay there 18 months and then it will take another six months to return to Earth. Imagine having to shop for a familyÂ’s three-year supply of groceries all at once and hav-ing enough meals planned in advance for that length of time. Â“Mars is different just because itÂ’s so far away,Â” said Maya Cooper, senior research scien-tist with Lockheed Martin who is leading the efforts to build the menu. Â“We donÂ’t have the option to send a vehicle every six months and send more food as we do for International Space Station.Â” Astronauts who travel to the space station have a wide variety of food available to them, some 100 or so different options, in fact. But it is all pre-prepared and freeze-dried with a shelf life of at least two years. And while astronauts make up a panel that tastes the food and gives it a final OK on Earth before it blasts off, the lack of gravity means smell Â— and taste Â— is impaired. So the food is bland. On Mars though, there is a little gravity, allowing NASA to consider significant changes to the current space menu. ThatÂ’s where CooperÂ’s team comes in. Travel to Mars opens the pos-sibility that astronauts can do things like chop vegetables and do a little cooking of their own. Even though pressure levels are different than on Earth, sci-entists think it will be possible to boil water with a pressure cooker, too. One option Cooper and her staff in the Johnson Space Center in Houston are consid-ering is having the astronauts care for a Â“Martian green-house.Â” They would have a variety of fruits and vegetables Â— from carrots to bell peppers Â— in a hydroponic solution, meaning they would be planted in mineral-laced water instead of soil. The astronauts would care for their garden and then use those ingredients, com-bined with others, such as nuts and spices brought from Earth, to prepare their meals. Â“That menu is favorable because it allows the astronauts to actually have live plants that are growing, you have optimum nutrient delivery with fresh fruits and vegetables, and it actu-ally allows them to have freedom of choice when theyÂ’re actually cooking the menus because the food isnÂ’t already pre-prepared into a particular recipe,Â” Cooper said. The top priority is to ensure that the astronauts get the proper amount of nutrients, calories and minerals to maintain their physical health and perfor-mance for the life of the mission, Cooper said. The menu must also ensure the psychological health of the astronauts, Cooper explained, noting studies have shown that eating certain foods Â— such as meatloaf and mashed potatoes or turkey on Thanksgiving Â— improve peopleÂ’s mood and give them satisfaction. That Â“link to homeÂ” will be key for astronauts on the Mars mis-sion, and there are currently two academic studies look-ing further into the connection between mood and food. Lacking certain vitamins or minerals can also harm the brain, she said. Jerry Linenger, a retired astronaut who spent 132 days on the Russian Mir space station in 1997, said food is important for morale and the monotony of eat-ing the same thing day after day is difficult. Â“You just wanted something different. I didnÂ’t care if it was something I wouldnÂ’t eat in a million years on Earth. If it was different, I would eat it,Â” Linenger said, recalling with a laugh how he would even drink up a Russian sour milk-like con-coction for breakfast or drink up some borscht because it offered variety. Already, CooperÂ’s team of three has come up with about 100 recipes, all vegetarian because the astronauts will not have dairy or meat products available. It isnÂ’t possible to preserve those products long enough to take to Mars Â— and bringing a cow on the mission is not an option, Cooper jokes. To ensure the vegetarian diet packs the right amount of protein, the researchers are designing a variety of dishes that include tofu and nuts, including a Thai pizza that has no cheese but is covered with carrots, red peppers, mushrooms, scallions, peanuts and a homemade sauce that has a spicy kick. To keep this menu going, and get the most out of any research about food sustainability on Mars, Cooper says itÂ’s possible NASA will choose to have one astronaut solely dedicated to pre-paring the food Â— the Emeril of the Mars mission. Still, since it remains unclear how much time mission plan-ners will want to spend on food preparation, Cooper is also building an alternate pre-packaged menu, similar to how things are done for crews that do six-month stints on the International Space Station. For this option, though, the food will need to have a five-year shelf life compared with the two years available now. NASA, the Department of Defense and a variety of other agencies are researching ways to make that possible, Cooper said. The ideal, though, would be to combine the two options. Â“So they would have some fresh crop and some food that we would send from Earth,Â” Cooper said. One of the biggest obstacles, at the moment, may be the bud-getary constraints. President Barack ObamaÂ’s budget propos-al in February canceled a joint US-European robotic mission to Mars in 2016, and the rest of NASAÂ’s budget has also been chopped. At the moment, Michele Perchonok, advanced food technology project scientist at NASA, said about $1 million on average is spent annually on researching and building the Mars menu. NASAÂ’s overall budget in 2012 is more than $17 billion. She is hopeful that as the mission gets closer Â— about 10 to 15 years before launch Â— that the budget will grow, allowing for more in-depth, conclusive research. The mission is important: It will give scientists the chance for unique research on every-thing from looking for other life forms and for the origin of life on Earth to the effects of partial gravity on bone loss. It also will let food scientists examine the question of sustainability. Â“How do we sustain the crew, 100 percent recycling of everything for that two and a half years?Â” Perchonok said. But first things first: None of this will happen without food. WhatÂ’s on the menu for Mars? Lockeed Martin senior research scientist Maya Cooper s hows a vegan pizza developed at NASAÂ’s Advanced Food Technology Project at Johnson Space Center in Houston July 3. NASA is currently plann ing a mission to Mars, which has gravity, so more option s for food preparation, like chopping vegetables, are available as opposed to the dehydrated fa re of current space missions. ASSOCIATED PRESS VIENNA (AP) Â— A revolutionary discovery is rewriting the history of underwear: Some 600 years ago, women wore bras. The University of Innsbruck said Wednesday that archeologists found four linen bras dating from the Middle Ages in an Austrian castle. Fashion experts describe the find as surprising because the bra had commonly been thought to be only little more than 100 years old as women abandoned the tight corset. Instead, it appears the bra came first, followed by the corset, followed by the reinvented bra. One specimen in particular Â“looks exactly like a (modern) brassiere,Â” says Hilary Davidson, fashion curator for the London Museum. Â“These are amazing finds.Â” Although the linen garments were unearthed in 2008, they did not make news until now says Beatrix Nutz, the archaeologist responsible for the dis-covery. Researching the items and carbon dating them to make sure they were genuine took some time. She delivered a lecture on them last year but the information stayed within academic circles until a recent article in the BBC History Magazine. Â“We didnÂ’t believe it ourselves,Â” she said in a telephone call from the Tyrolean city of Innsbruck. Â“From what we knew, there was no such thing as bra-like garments in the 15th century.Â” The university said the four bras were among more than 2,700 textile fragments Â— some linen, others linen combined with cotton Â— that were found intermixed with dirt, wood, straw and pieces of leather. Â“Four linen textiles resemble modern-time brasÂ” with distinct cups and one in particular looks like todayÂ’s ver-sion, it said, with Â“two broad shoulder straps and a possible back strap, not preserved but indicated by partially torn edges of the cups onto which it was attached.Â” And the lingerie was not only functional. The bras were intricately decorated with lace and other ornamentation, the statement said, suggesting they were also meant to please a suitor. While paintings of the era show outerwear, they do not reveal what women wore beneath. Davidson, the fashion curator, described the finds as Â“kind of a missing linkÂ” in the history of wom-enÂ’s underwear. Women started experimenting with bra-like garments in the late 1800s and the first modern brassiere was patented in the early 19th century. It is thought to have been invented by New York socialite Mary Phelps Jacob, who was unhappy with the look of her gown over a stiff corset. Also found at Lemberg Castle in Tyrol was a linen undergarment that looks very much like a pair of panties. But Nutz said it is menÂ’s underwear Â— women did not wear anything under their flowing skirts back then. Â“Underpants were considered a symbol of male dominance and power,Â” she said. Medieval drawings often show a man and a woman fighting for a pair of underpants in a symbolic battle to see who Â“wears the trousersÂ” in the family. This undated picture publicly provided by the Archeolog ical Institute of the University of Innsbruck, shows a medieval bra. The bra is commonly thought to be little more than 100 years old as corseted women abandoned rigid fashions and opted for th e more natural look. But that timeline is about to be revised with the discovery of four brassie res from the Middle Ages in a debris-filled vault of an Austrian castle.

DEAR ABBY: IÂ’m married to the love of my life. My wife is a beautiful woman, 50 years old, in great shape and she looks 35. My problem is when-ever we go out, if I ask her to wear something sexy for me, she always says, Â“IÂ’m too old to dress like thatÂ” and refuses. However, when she dresses for work, she spends hours on her appearance and dresses very sexy. I have told her it bothers me, but she says IÂ’m being silly and she just wants to look good for her manage-ment job. SheÂ’s constantly buying new outfits for work. This morning she left wearing a sexy short miniskirt and boots. She is an independent woman who does what she wants. I donÂ’t spend my time trying to control her by any means. I trust her and seriously doubt thereÂ’s another man. But I feel this is a matter of her not respecting my feel-ings as her husband. Am I wrong? I need your help. -LIKES HER SEXY IN CONNECTICUT DEAR LIKES HER SEXY: ThereÂ’s something sad about the fact that your wife doesnÂ’t want to put the same amount of effort into looking as good when she goes out with you as she does when she leaves for work. Rather than turning this into a power struggle, the next time you want to take her out looking sexy, ask her to just Â“throw on some-thing she would wear to the officeÂ” and see if you have better luck. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am 18 and will be graduating in May of next year. Because I have always done well in school, my family expects me to go right off to a big-league college. Abby, I want to go to college, but not right away. I want to be a zoologist, and plan on going to school for it, but I feel that my family is rushing me into college because they expect it of me. When I tell them my other interest is hairstyl-ing, and I may want to take a year off to do that to save up money, they put me down and compare me to my successful college cousins. I want my family to be proud of me because I have worked hard in school. I only wish they would be just as proud of me if I maintained a nice job for a few years and then went to college. (I have been told if I choose that path, I will never go to college and IÂ’ll never make good money.) They also blame my not wanting to go to col-lege right away on my boyfriend of two years. I assure you, that is not the reason. I want to attend an in-state college, and I would still be able to see him. Do you have any advice? -SCHOOLED-OUT IN COLORADO DEAR SCHOOLEDOUT: The longer you delay college, the more distrac-tions there will be and the harder it will be for you to go back. Yes, people do it. But juggling a job and going to school is more difficult than going to school full-time, and it takes longer to get the degree. I urge you to listen to your parents. They have your best inter-ests at heart. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): DonÂ’t overdo it. Stick to the friends you have known longest, and donÂ’t be afraid to make last-min-ute changes. Your love life is on the rise, and meeting someone new or spending more time with your lover is in the stars. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Create a situation that will help you understand what happened in the past. You have to let go of emotional baggage if you are going to move forward or forgive and forget. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Fixing up your sur-roundings will help you overcome the restless-ness youÂ’ve been feeling. ItÂ’s important to look far enough ahead before you make a decision or move that will affect everyone around you. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Talk about emotional matters with someone you trust, and you will benefit from the advice given. Protect your assets from someone who is trying to take advantage of you. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): DonÂ’t flaunt what you have. You cannot buy friendship, love or happi-ness. Someone is likely to use you to get ahead if you are overly generous with your time, money or valu-able information. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Control your emotions when dealing with person-al or professional partners. Concentrate on getting good results without push-ing or pressuring anyone to get involved. The more you do on your own, the better it will be for you in the end. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take the initiative and organize events that inter-est you. Greater involve-ment with people from different backgrounds will lead you to incorporating changes to your lifestyle. An affectionate gesture will be well-received by someone you love. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Listen to whatÂ’s being asked of you, but donÂ’t make promises. DonÂ’t get involved in something you cannot afford. Set your budget and stick to your plans. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): DonÂ’t let your emotions take over and speak for you. Focus on the changes you can make at home that will be benefi-cial professionally and per-sonally. YouÂ’ll have good ideas that can turn into a lucrative endeavor. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): An old idea will come to mind. Before you decide to resurrect your plan, test the market and see if your timing is bet-ter. Money can be made, but you must invest in the right product, service or project. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): DonÂ’t let a mishap turn into an unfor-tunate affair. Honesty will help you avoid ongoing trouble. Speak your mind to find out where you stand. A better personal environment will help ease your stress. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Observe what every-one else does, but donÂ’t make a fuss. Size up your situation and counteract whatever isnÂ’t going your way with facts that back the way you feel. The more you know, the easier it will be to get your way. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 European spa site6 Non-fiction10 Clam (up)14 French pronoun17 Historic mission, ZLWKWKH 18 Borg rival19 Words before may and might 7KH\UHRIWHQVHHQ in banks 22 )RXUVWRSVRQ$ trip around theworld 26 Three more stops BBBEHDQKRQRU28 Flashes quickly29 Soft31 Three Stooges specialty 34 John who is half of a popular singingduo 35 McIntosh alternatives 36 Bert, to Ernie37 Lang. from which 8and 24-Down come 39 Mag mogul with a mansion 40 Moneymaking concern 41 Bikini part42 Like many an outof-towner in TimesSquare 44 Sci-fi drug46 Window-shopping purchase? 47 Manual contentsBBB2EVHUYDWRU\51 It comes and goes53 Wander54 Long-running PBS documentary filmseries 55 Three more stops 61 Three more stops 63 Three more stops 7KDWV\XFN\66 Former senator Stevens 67 Speaks, informally68 11-time N.B.A. AllStar Iverson 69 Bake, as an egg72 Works on74 Tostitos bowl?76 Channel choker77 Solo in the movies78 Hacks79 S.A. tin exporter82 Sealing wax ingredient 84 Woman in ProgressiveInsurancecommercials
6D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFESTYLE SUNDAY, JULY 22, 2012 6DLIFELONDON (AP) Â— As the world comes to Britain for the Olympics, Britain is celebrating arguably its greatest gift to the world Â— the plays of William Shakespeare. Anyone who doubts that accolade for the playwright dead almost 400 years might want to go to the new Â“Shakespeare: Staging the WorldÂ” exhibition at the British Museum, and look at the final exhibit, a well-worn, one-volume collection of ShakespeareÂ’s plays. The book is the property of Sonny Venkatrathnam, a former South African anti-apartheid prisoner. He secretly kept it the notorious Robben Island prison but shared it with other inmates, who underlined and autographed the passages that meant the most to them. The book lies open at lines from Â“Julius CaesarÂ” Â— Â“Cowards die many times before their deaths/The valiant never taste of death but onceÂ” Â— signed Â“N.R.D. Mandela.Â” Â“In a way, Nelson was the Caesar of the ANC,Â” said Venkatrathnam, who spent several years in the prison with African National Congress leader Mandela in the 1970s. Â“I think it resonated with his philosophy.Â” Mandela Â— now the revered 94-year-old former president of post-apartheid South Africa Â— is one of more than 30 inmates whom Venkatrathnam asked to sign the volume. It became known as the Â“Robben Island Bible,Â” because Venkatrathnam told prison warders Â— who had banned nonreligious books Â— that it was Â“the Bible by William Shakespeare.Â” He plastered its cover with cards celebrating the Hindu festival of Diwali in a successful bid to disguise the contents from guards. Â“They would come and say, Â‘WhatÂ’s that?Â’ IÂ’d say Â‘ItÂ’s my Bible,Â’Â” said Venkatrathnam, a dapper 76-year-old who traveled to London for the opening of the exhibition. Â“For all the years on the island they wouldnÂ’t touch it.Â” British Museum director Neil MacGregor said the book is Â“a wonderful symbol of what Shakespeare means to all of us.Â” The exhibition, which opens Thursday, is part of an outpour-ing of Shakespearean activity in Britain that includes the opening ceremony of the July 27-Aug. 12 Olympic Games. Director Danny BoyleÂ’s ceremony, entitled Â“Isles of Wonder,Â” is inspired by the strange and enchanted island of Â“The Tempest.Â” Other helpings of the Bard include a cycle of history plays, currently being shown on Saturday night prime-time BBC television, and the Royal Shakespeare CompanyÂ’s epic World Shakespeare Festival. Since April, the RSC, based in ShakespeareÂ’s home town of Stratford-upon-Avon, has been bringing companies from around the world to stage his plays in Britain. The productions, in more than 40 languages, have ranged from an Iraqi Â“Romeo and JulietÂ” to a Russian Â“Midsummer NightÂ’s DreamÂ” and a Brazilian circus Â“Richard III.Â” American director Peter Sellars, whose contribution to the festival is Â“DesdemonaÂ” Â— a reimagining of Â“OthelloÂ” by U.S. writer Toni Morrison and Malian singer Rokia Traore Â— said Shakespeare is truly a writer for the whole world. Â“He was a guy who Â— and not for reasons of branding Â— called his theater Â‘The Globe,Â’Â” Sellars said. The British Museum show, which runs through Nov. 25, combines artifacts from ShakespeareÂ’s time Â— including the only surviving manuscript in the playwrightÂ’s handwriting Â— with recorded readings by actors to evoke an era that seems both familiar and alien. In ShakespeareÂ’s day, London was just beginning to attract people from around the world, emerging as the center of a nascent empire. Â“As the world comes to London in 2012, this Olympic summer, we are going to look at how the world came to London and how London saw the world 400 years ago,Â” said Jonathan Bate, co-curator of the exhibi-tion. The exhibition roams through ShakespeareÂ’s influences, from the rural English landscapes of his youth to the countryÂ’s dynastic power struggles, the discoveries emerging from the New World, the arrival of visitors from abroad and the creation of Britain as a country with the union of the crowns of England and Scotland under James I. Some items suggest a cold, violent world a long way from our own. ThereÂ’s King Henry VÂ’s jousting helmet, a bear skull excavated from the site of an Elizabethan theater Â— where bear-baiting went on alongside drama Â— and an iron Â“witchÂ’s collarÂ” and metal gag used to punish women accused of sor-cery. But the parallels with our own era of migration, globaliza-tion and political uncertainty are ever-present. It is hard to nail down the secret of ShakespeareÂ’s genius. It rests on some combination of the exuberance of his language and the resonance of the human predicaments he depicts, from lovers battling family disapproval to kings struggling to live up to the bur-dens of power. Shakespeare set plays in Venice and Verona, Denmark and Egypt Â— places he had read about but never visited. His plays in turn helped create the world view of his audience, and have been influencing audi-ences around the world ever since. Â“He was genuinely a global figure Â— perhaps the greatest global export this country has ever produced,Â” Bate said. His ability to speak to audiences around the world is undimmed. Â“The great thing about Shakespeare is that he speaks to everyone,Â” Venkatrathnam said. Â“Regardless of your politi-cal or ideological position, you can find something that speaks directly to you. To me, he is the universal philosopher.Â” LondonÂ’s Olympic summer has a Shakespearean flavor ASSOCIATED PRESSPeople stand in front of a tapestry map of the county of Warw ickshire, where Shakespeare was brought up, dated about 1588, made for wealthy landowner Ralph Sheldon, during the press view of the Â“Shak espeare: staging the worldÂ” exhibition at the British Muse um in London, Wednesday, July 18, 2012.

Â“Well, I think IÂ’m the only guy who has a signature dog.Â” The original Sandy, also a terrier mix, went on to play almost all 2,377 perfor-mances of Â“AnnieÂ” and Berloni supplied shelter dogs for all four national tours of the show, as well as the 10th, 20th and 30th anniversary productions. SunnyÂ’s understudy, Casey, was rescued from a shelter in Nashville, Tenn. The revival of the musical, which features music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin and book by Thomas Meehan, will be directed by three-time Tony winner James Lapine and choreo-graphed by Andy Blankenbuehler. Its hit songs include Â“ItÂ’s the Hard-Knock LifeÂ” and Â“Tomorrow.Â” Lapine has yet to plan out exactly what he wants Sunny to do, other than not what any other Sandys have done in the past. Berloni is preparing a list of tricks, and has been told that creators may want the dog to dance. Â“I have to say, itÂ’s the first time IÂ’ve ever put a dog in a dance number,Â” he said. Â“ThatÂ’s going to be new and interesting.Â” The dog food company Pedigree has make the unprecedented step of partner-ing with the new Broadway production and will donate $2 for every ticket sold through Dec. 31, 2013 Â— up to $1 mil-lion Â— to a nonprofit dedicated to help-ing dogs find homes. All proceeds from co-branded merchandise will go to the effort. Pedigree Senior Brand Manager Lisa Campbell hopes the initiative will put a spotlight on the plight of homeless dogs. Â“Shelter dogs arenÂ’t broken Â— they just havenÂ’t been given the chance,Â” she said. Â“What a great vehicle to show people that you can find a star in a shelter. A dog that is now a Broadway star very easily could have been euthanized.Â” The journeys of Sunny and Casey from life in shelters to the bright lights of Times Square will be documented in a 30-minute TV special, Â“AnnieÂ’s Search for Sandy,Â” set to air on NBC in October. Though Berloni concentrates mostly on dogs, heÂ’s also trained cats, birds and rodents. He coached a cat in Â“The Lieutenant of Inishmore,Â” a rat in Â“The Woman in WhiteÂ” and 23 lambs for Bernadette PetersÂ’ run in Â“Gypsy.Â” He won a special 2011 Tony Award for his contribution to the theater and is a behavior consultant to the Humane Society of New York. After BerloniÂ’s ani-mals retire, they often spend their final years at his Connecticut farm. Â“I always say anybody could have gone into a shelter and adopted any one of the animals that IÂ’ve turned into Broadway stars the day before I did,Â” he said. Â“And they would have been great dogs in someoneÂ’s home. I just get the opportunity to show that theyÂ’re great dogs onstage.Â” To get Sunny used to Broadway, her diet will be carefully monitored, her routine formalized and sheÂ’ll get used to all the actors in the Â“AnnieÂ” revival to ensure everyone is comfortable. SheÂ’ll also be brought to current Broadway shows to get familiar with the roar of the crowd.
