The supply drive, School Tools for Cool Kids, runs until Aug. 20 at Publix, off U.S. Highway 90 in Lake City. Pre-made packages of supplies can be purchased at the store or supplies can be dropped into a donation bin in the front of the store. School supply donations from the community allow the school districtÂ’s homeless education program to stretch its budget, which is mostly spent on tutoring for home-less students, Huggins said.

Matthew 5:14,16 NIV TALLAHASSEE Floridas top health official says closing the states only tuberculosis sanitari um will improve treatment of the disease. Surgeon General John Armstrong on Monday also announced revised procedures that focus on community care and mea suring performance. Armstrong said Floridas infection rate continues to decline despite a recent outbreak among homeless people in the Jacksonville area. The former Army doc tor took over the state Department of Health in May. He said the proce dural changes are not a response to that outbreak. Armstrong said they are the result, instead, of the July 2 closure of A.G. Holley State Hospital in South Florida and his plans for revamping the states public health system. Public hospitals in Miami and Jacksonville will take patients formerly treated at Holley but the priority will be on commu nity care. Judge steps aside in burning case FORT LAUDERDALE The judge presiding over the case of a Florida teenager set on fire by middle school classmates has stepped aside from the case. Defense attorneys asked Broward Circuit Judge Michael Robinson to recuse himself, and he did so last week. It wasnt immediately clear why on Monday, but now the case has been assigned to a dif ferent judge. Robinson had been plan ning next month to inter view jurors who convicted 17-year-old Matthew Bent of aggravated battery in the 2009 attack on Michael Brewer. Brewer was doused with alcohol and set on fire. One juror had com plained about possible mis conduct during delibera tions and said she didnt understand the judges instructions. State appeals ruling voiding law MIAMI Gov. Rick Scott says the state is appealing a federal judges ruling striking down a Florida law that restricted doctors from talking with patients about gun owner ship. Scott announced the appeal Monday of U.S. District Judge Marcia Cookes ruling earlier this month in the case known as Docs vs. Glocks. Cooke agreed with physi cians who contended the law violates free speech rights. The state will take its case to the Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Scott says he believes the law is consti tutional and will continue to defend it. Floridas Republicancontrolled Legislature adopted the Firearm Owners Privacy Act in 2011 after an Ocala couple complained that a doctor had asked them about guns. The couple says they refused to answer and the physician refused to see them again. Abduction of girl ruled a hoax PORT ST. LUCIE Police say a report of two girls being abducted at gunpoint in St. Lucie County was a hoax. A Port St. Lucie boy has been arrested for making the false report, which prompted a police search on ground and in the air. A police spokesman says the boy reported his sisters were taken Sunday afternoon by six masked individuals, one wielding a gun. A search ensued and surveillance tape at the site the girls were supposedly abduct ed from was reviewed, but the boy eventually confessed no kidnapping took place. Group pans disclosure TALLAHASSEE An ethics research group says Florida doesnt require public officials to disclose enough about their personal finances. Integrity Florida released a report Monday urging Florida to follow the lead of Louisiana by requiring officials to dis close more details that could show if they have conflicts of interest or are profiting from their public service. The organization also is calling for Florida to join 27 other states that post financial disclosure statements online to truly make them public. Hospital closure to improve TB treatment n Associated Press LOS ANGELES The Dark Knight Rises stayed atop the box office for the second straight weekend, making just over $64 million. But its lagging behind the staggering numbers of its predeces sor, 2008s The Dark Knight. The final piece in Christopher Nolans Batman trilogy has now grossed more than $289 million in its first 10 days in theaters. It dropped 60 percent from its opening weekend of $160.9 million. By comparison, The Dark Knight took a 53 percent drop in its second weekend with a gross of nearly $75.2 million and a 10-day cumulative gross of $313.8 million. Dan Fellman, head of distribution for Warner Bros., declined to com ment on the Sunday estimates again out of respect for the victims of the Aurora, Colo., shooting that left 12 people dead and another 58 injured at a midnight showing of the film on opening night. But people are still going to the movies, and they did so even last weekend, said Hollywood. com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. If anything hurt the numbers for all movies this weekend, he said, it was Friday nights opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, which drew a record-setting 40.7 mil lion viewers in the United States. For a film that opened as big as this did, consider ing the situation and what happened last weekend and all that, I would say this is a very strong show ing, Dergarabedian said. Its made almost $300 mil lion in North America and its mid-week (attendance) is very strong. It made $19 million last Monday. Author fakes Dylan quotes, resigns NEW YORK A staff writer for The New Yorker has resigned and his latest book has been halted after he acknowledged invent ing quotes by Bob Dylan. Jonah Lehrer released a statement Monday through his publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, saying that some Dylan quotes appear ing in his book Imagine: How Creativity Works did not exist. Others were unintentional mis quotations, or represented improper combinations of previously existing quotes. Lehrer said he acknowl edged his actions after being contacted by Michael Moynihan of the online publication Tablet Magazine, which earlier Monday released an indepth story on the Dylan passages in Imagine I told Mr. Moynihan that they (the quotes in question) were from archival interview foot age provided to me by Dylans representatives. This was a lie spoken in a moment of panic. When Mr. Moynihan followed up, I continued to lie, and say things I should not have said, Lehrer wrote in his statement. The lies are over now. I understand the gravity of my position. I want to apologize to everyone I have let down, especially my editors and readers. Houghton Mifflin said in a statement that Lehrer had committed a serious misuse. Listings for the ebook edition of Imagine will be removed and ship ments of the physical book have been stopped. Imagine was published in March and had been selling well, ranking No. 105 on Amazon.com as of midday Monday. The 31-year-old Lehrer, once a rising star at The New Yorker, was already in trouble with the maga zine after he acknowl edged last month that he had recycled passages he had written for previ ous publications. Some recycled passages also appeared in Imagine, the latest of three books by Lehrer, who is known for his explorations of science and literature and how the mind works.

Authorities have learned that Gee and Goodman came over to the apartment of Horace Powell, 35, 1442 NW Wayne Dr. Williams and Tarvares Livingston, 30, 13707 92nd Trace, Live Oak, were in Powells apart ment. Shortly after the arriv al of Gee and Goodman, an argument started. The argument escalated and gunfire erupted. Multiple rounds were fired. One of the rounds went through a wall, ricocheted and struck Livingston in the area of his eyebrow. Livingston was in the kitch en area during the inci dent. Livingston received a gunshot wound to the eyebrow and sought medi cal advice on his own at Shands at Live Oak, said Steve Shaw, Lake City Police Department public information officer, noting Livingston was not taken to the hospital by emer gency personnel. He was in stable condition when we left him. Powell suffered injuries to the back of his head dur ing the incident as a result of being struck with the butt of a gun. He had lacerations and abrasions, Shaw said, not ing Powell did not request emergency care from per sonnel on the scene. Williams, 31, was taken from the scene by a Lifeguard Ambulance res cue unit. However, due to injuries he suffered from multiple gun shot wounds, he was pronounced dead by medical staff at Lake City Medical Center. Gee and Goodman fled the apartment after the shooting. They ran to the neighboring apart ment complex, Greentree Apartments, and at gun point carjacked a white Acura and fled the area. Sgt. Larry Shallar, responding to the call at Wayne Drive Apartments, saw the suspects leaving the area and a vehicle pur suit ensued. The suspects traveled at speeds of 40 mph through the city. As the vehicle approached the city limits Shallar contact ed the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, who took the lead position in the pur suit at the city limits. The suspects continued to travel about 40 mph into the county and out on Old Country Club Road. The suspect tuned on Southeast Lanvale Street and slowed to approximate ly 20 mph but continued to flee.

Abbie Chasteen will join the Chamber starting Wednesday to coordinate commu nity outreach events, carry out marketing and public relations goals and manage the Chambers exposure in print, electronic and social media. The Chamber partnered with The Ichetucknee Partnership earlier this month to serve as the marketing arm for the water-resource protection and edu cation nonprofit. Chasteen will play an important role in TIP marketing. Abbie believes in the Chamber of Commerces mission to enhance our busi ness community and our way of life here, said Todd Wilson, Chamber president and Lake City Reporter publisher. She has leadership traits and a work ethic that fit perfectly with our strategic plan to grow the Chamber and enhance TIP initiatives throughout Columbia County. She is a great complement to our current staff. Chasteen holds a bach elors degree from St. Leo University and comes to the Chamber after six years of teaching first grade in Columbia County. She has strong customer service, graphic design and communica tion skills, said Dennille Decker, Chamber executive director. The Chamber feels fortunate to have someone of Abbies caliber to our team, Decker said. She has a dedication to Lake City and Columbia County and its citizens. We are looking forward to watching the Chamber grow and strengthen member ship with Abbies assistance. We have been laying the foundation for growth over the past several years, with the addition of such a talented new employee the sky is the limit for the Chamber, Decker said. Chasteen Johnsons resignations at a city council meeting last week. A history of racial discrimination within the police department as well as a photo of Gilmore at the Olustee Festival parade with a group that the NAACP claimed were affiliates of the Ku Klux Klan were the primary reasons outlined for Gilmores resig nation. Local NAACP president John Mayo unexpectedly did not call for the chiefs resignation at the meeting, but instead told the public to attend the town hall meeting to discuss the issue. NAACP special counsel David Honig called the case against Gilmore unique and massive. NAACP very seldom calls for some one to be terminated, Honig said. Honig said the Lake City Police Department has discriminated and harassed members of the public because of their race. He said Gilmore has exercised bad judgment. You cant operate law enforcement without the consent of the people, Honig said. Bea Coker of Lake City, mem ber of the SCLC, told local NAACP branch president John Mayo that she applauded his efforts in seeking Gilmores resignation. We dont just need black people in places, we need the right people in places, Coker said. Renee Smith spoke during the pub lic hearing, saying she had formerly worked for the city of Lake City but was laid off for reasons undisclosed to her. Smith said the community as a whole needs to be taken under con sideration. Whats the real plan? she asked NAACP members. Adora Obi Nweze, President of the Florida state conference NAACP, said the organization has five game chang ers or issues of key interest to the group. Education, health, economic devel opment, criminal justice and civic engagement were outlined as the five areas the NAACP is committed to addressing. Former LCPD captain Rudolph Davis told the crowd of about a hun dred to look at the evidence. Davis was lambasted by Gilmore during the city council meeting last week for orchestrating the contro versy surrounding the chief. Im doing this because I dont want it to happen to nobody else, Davis said. Nweze said the next step of the process is in the hands of the local branch. The branch will make a decision as to what its position will be in reference to the Chief Gilmore case. The confer ence wont make that decision. Weve already made that decision. Weve con curred on it. But we dont influence the branch, the branch has a right to make its own decision, Nweze said. Nweze advised the branch to get to know the policy of the NAACP, for the policy is what ultimately must be fol lowed, she said. No unit of NAACP can stand in opposition to policy, period, Landry said. Gilmore, who did not attend the meeting, was not immediately avail able for comment. NAACP: Calls for resignation of Lake City Police Chief Argatha Gilmore Continued From Page 1A By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org A Fort White man faces multiple charges after he led authorities on a pursuit while he had an unrestrained four-yearold child in his vehicle Saturday afternoon. Christopher John Abbott Jr., 26, 252 SW McKinney Ave., Fort White, was charged with resisting an officer with out violence, fleeing and eluding, and child neglect in the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Center on $22,000 bond. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, Cpl. Caleb Douglas was traveling on County Road 238 observ ing traffic speeds and pat terns when he saw a silver Dodge extended cab pick up truck traveling at a fast pace. Authorities reported Abbott was traveling 60 mph in a 45 mph zone. Reports said Abbott began to slow when he saw the police cruiser. As the officer passed he recognized Abbott, who appeared to be the vehicles sole occupant. Douglas reported that he knew Abbott did not have a valid drivers license, so he turned around and attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but Abbott sped away. Douglas reportedly turned on his emergen cy lights and siren, but it appeared that Abbott was not going to stop and he was driving toward a residential area, so he used a maneuver to force Abbotts truck from the roadway. Abbotts vehicle spun coun ter clock wise and came to rest in a ditch on the south side of County Road 238 after Douglas used the PIT maneuver to force it from the roadway. Abbott was taken into custody and a search of the vehi cle revealed a four-yearold boy in the front seat. Abbott and the child were both checked at the scene and declared injury free by EMS personnel. Abbott was asked where the child was riding and he and the boy confirmed the child was riding in the front passenger seat, unrestrained. Abbott was arrested and the child was released to a family friend, reports said.

REPORT: Arrest made Continued From Page 1A Andrew Alexander Brown, 19, homeless, was charged with fraud in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $1,000 bond. According to Lake City Police Department reports, police officers and Columbia County Sheriffs Office deputies were dis patched to the area of North Marion Avenue and Northeast Franklin Street around 11:45 p.m. Sunday for an armed robbery. Brown called police using a false name to report a robbery by knifepoint and gave his physical descrip tion as the suspect, who he reported was now fleeing north on Marion Avenue. Brown later admitted he lied to police and said he did not rob anyone. He just wanted to be arrested due to being homeless.

Both were reported flushed and had stopped sweating. One of the victims was taken to the VA medical center because of a rapid heart rate. The female victim said Eskilson had locked them out of the house and refused to let them back inside. When Stratton entered the home he noted the resi dence smelled of urine and had clothes strewn all about the house. The residence was not in a livable condition due to the smell and the condi tion, Stratton wrote in his arrest report. Both victims had soiled and urinated on themselves. ABUSE Continued From 1A
ONE OPINION P erhaps it was a farewell gesture to Ron Paul, who, after serving in Congress three different times and running for president three times, is retiring at age 76. The House finally approved legislation long sought by the libertarian Republican, a bill calling for a comprehensive audit of the Federal Reserve and its 12 regional banks. Paul has been a longtime proponent of dismantling the central bank, saying in a state-ment, Â“If Congress were really serious about limiting the size of government, it would elimi-nate the most important enabler of government profligacy by ending the Fed.Â” Basically, the Fed is in charge of the nationÂ’s monetary policy, playing a central role in control-ling the money supply and set-ting interest rates and keeping the dollar competitive against other currencies. PaulÂ’s measure easily passed, 327-98, but the Senate, even though Ron PaulÂ’s son, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., introduced a companion measure, is unlikely to take it up this year, meaning advocates of a full-scale audit of the Fed will have to start all over again. The Fed is already subject to a number of annual audits and the minutes of the delibera-tions of its board of governors are a matter of public record, although on a delayed basis. The Fed doesnÂ’t object generally to the audit but it objects vehemently to audits that would demand documents by Fed policy makers on the pros and cons of supporting changes in interest rates, decisions that affect everything from home mortgages to car loans to sav-ing accounts. Chairman Ben Bernanke said it would be a Â“nightmare scenarioÂ” that could open up the FedÂ’s deliberations to political interference from Congress and the White House. Being able to open a spigot of cash would be a powerful political tool but one dangerous to the health of the economy. However far the Paul bill goes, Congress must insure that nothing jeopardizes the inde-pendence of the Fed and or is even seen as an encroachment on its economic impartiality.

You, Mr. President, did not build that!Ricky RegisterLake City A renewed reces-sion continues to stalk the economy, possibly leading to intervention by the Federal Reserve. New numbers, due Friday, on gross domestic product for the April-June quarter could show the economy dipping back toward negative territory. Although sales of new homes were up 15 percent in June from a year before, Â“signed contracts to buy new homes fell 8.4 percent from the previ-ous month,Â” CNBC reported. Although the Dow Jones indus-trial average rose 0.8 percent Wednesday, the index was still down nearly 3 percent from a week ago. Even Apple Inc. is suffering. On Tuesday, it reported $35 bil-lion in sales for the April-June quarter, lower than the $37 billion analysts has expected. Investors werenÂ’t palliated by speculation that consumers were delaying purchases until the new iPhone 5 comes out in September or October. AppleÂ’s stock had dropped 5 percent in the previous week. Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve Board widely was expected to soon launch Â“QE3Â” Â– a third round of quantitative easing. Essentially, it means the Fed will just print more money, hoping it jump-starts the economy; although nowadays the Â“printingÂ” mostly amounts to electronically crediting the Fed accounts of big banks. And it will keep interest rates low. Or will it? Â“QE3 wonÂ’t do much,Â” Esmael Adibi told us; heÂ’s director of the A. Gary Anderson Center for Economic Research at Chapman University. Â“The slowdown is from a combination of these four factors,Â” Mr. Adibi said. There isnÂ’t much Americans can do about the problems in foreign countries. Â“But address-ing the issues we have on tax-ing and spending will have to wait for the election.Â” So this is an intermediate period, with people hauling up and waiting to see what happens. M ilitary justice is an oxymo-ron when it comes to women in the armed forces. When a woman volunteers to serve in the military, it doesnÂ’t mean that she volunteers to be sexually assaulted by enlisted men or officers. But as the eighth Department of Defense Annual Report on Sexual Assault in the Military reports, all too often thatÂ’s what happens. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said earlier this year that as many as 19,000 ser-vice members may have been the victims of sexual assault in 2011. Of that number, only 3,200 victims reported the attacks and only 191 cases resulted in court-martial convictions. Those numbers are shameful.It appears that the Pentagon is trying to get a handle on the problem through training programs, greater efforts to encourage reporting, improving responses to sexual assaults, a 24/7 hotline for victims, better education for case workers and other initiatives. But those efforts Â— and the messages they send Â— were undercut by the inadequate sentence handed down Saturday by a military court to Air Force Staff Sgt. Luis Walker. He was found guilty of 28 charges of rape, aggravated sexual contact and multiple counts of aggra-vated sexual assault. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Twenty years sounds like a long sentence. But it amounts to less than a year for each count. Walker was the face of a sex scandal at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, where every airman and woman in our country goes for basic training. He was among 12 instructors investigated in con-nection with sexual misconduct involving at least 31 female train-ees. Six of the instructors have been charged with crimes that include rape and sexual assault. Walker was the first to stand trial. U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, DCalif., summed up the case this way: Â“The military jury con-firmed what we already knew, Walker is a sexual predator who used his position in the military to rape and sexually assault young recruits at Lackland. But a sentence of 20 years in confinement is inadequate for a man who abused 10 victims.... The only way to end rape in the military is prosecute, convict, and punish perpetrators to the full extent of military law.... The widespread sex abuse scandal at Lackland demands a Congressional investigation. We need to know how this behavior was permitted at Lackland for so long and by so many.Â” The excuse Â— explanation? rationalization? Â— for raping and assaulting women in the military is pitiful. YouÂ’ve heard it before. About one in five recruits at Lackland is female. Ninety percent of the 475 instructors are male. Are we supposed to accept that because women are outnumbered and in the vicinity of men they become prey? We can reel off the high-profile military sexual assault scan-dals Â— the Tailhook Association meetings in 1991, Aberdeen Proving Ground in 1996, the Air Force Academy in 2003 and Lackland. How can this continue? Is this Jerry Sandusky raping little boys and Joe Paterno ignoring it? Is this the Catholic Church with well-oiled machinery in place to hide predators and buy off victims? HavenÂ’t we learned anything?Protecting women who are protecting their country is the least we owe them. Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service. Dale McFeattersmcfeattersd@shns.com D riving across the Midwest a few days ago, I was heartsick to see what the worst drought in half a century has done to once-gorgeous corn fields. In county after county, crops are withered, stunted and pathetic. The ramifications for a nation struggling to avoid falling back into recession will be devastating. And, as usual, politics is gumming up the works. It is astounding how many products contain corn, from ani-mal feed to wallpaper paste. Thus, higher corn prices will be passed on to consumers in thousands of items and drive up food prices from milk to meat. Three thousand counties already have been declared disas-ter areas because of drought or storms or heat. (The federal gov-ernment says this year is the hot-test on record.) Many farmers say they are facing fiscal disaster if they donÂ’t get government help but many programs designed to help farmers after periods of bad weather expired at the end of 2011. About 16 million jobs are dependent on agriculture. Drought is also damaging infrastructure as the dry soil under highways causes cracks and hot concrete expands and pops. The New York Times documented extreme damage to roads, bridg-es, tarmac and power lines from high temperatures, storms and drought. In the past Congress would have raced to pass farm aid to avoid angering farmers. Not this year. If there is no bill by September 30, farm advocates say farm-ers would be devastated. Also, Congress will be in recess for most of August. Those who donÂ’t want the farm bill passed argue that farmers should have bought crop insur-ance. This is just another example of what has been clear for some time: Congress is broken because the American people have become so polarized that compromise is a dirty word and politicians are afraid of it. Unless we relearn that politics is the art of compromise, government will not work. And our country will suffer. Mix drought with politics and we all suffer Ann McFeattersamcfeatters@nationalpress.com Q Scripps Howard columnist Ann McFeatters has covered the White House and national politics since 1986.

COURTESY COURTESY Car wash raises an extra $700 for flood relief TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) An eth ics research and advocacy organization is calling for Florida to follow Louisianas lead by requiring public officials to make more detailed financial disclosures in a corruption risk report released Monday. That would help citizens determine if lawmakers and other state and local officeholders have conflicts of interests and whether they are serving them selves or the public, said Integrity Florida executive director Dan Krassner. Its time to take a look and see whos potentially involved in insider trading, Krassner said at a news conference. Do we have public officials that know where the roads going to be built and they get to buy up the land and make money and you cant? Integrity Floridas report, which cov ers disclosures that were due July 1, also urges Florida to join 27 other states that post their statements online to truly make them public. Theyre kept essentially in secret, Krassner said. We know in this day and age if somethings not online it doesnt exist. In the meantime, Integrity Florida has posted 600 disclosure documents on its website. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal made financial disclosure reform a prior ity and his state now ranks best in the nation, according to the Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit national investigative news organization. Florida ranks 26th. They tout ethics reform in Louisiana as a jobs attracter to employers and the results are there, Krassner said, noting Louisianas unemployment rate is lower than Floridas. Its on their economic development website. The report compares Jindals thick packet of financial disclosure documents with the much less detailed form that was filed by Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who has made attracting new business and jobs the cornerstone of his administration. Information required by Louisiana but not Florida includes all financial transac tions exceeding $1,000, detailed outside employment information, nonprofit board memberships, more extensive informa tion on spouses finances, income from government and gaming interests and greater details about clients from profes sional or consulting services. Also, Louisiana public employees, but not those in Florida, are required to dis close contributions theyve made to the campaigns of public officials who employ them. Other findings in the report are that the median net worth of Florida lawmak ers increased about 15 percent since a year ago, 11 legislators worked for lobby ing firms during the 2012 session and 12 senators and representatives disclosed 33 potential voting conflicts. Krassner said its good that lawmakers revealed voting conflicts and lobbying firm employment but that some disclosed more than others. He also noted a voting conflict can be disclosed up to 15 days after a vote. The report recommends such disclosures be made before a vote is cast. Other recommendations are for ran dom audits of disclosures by the state Ethics Commission and a reduction in the grace period for late filers from two months to one. More than 4,000 public officials and employees still had not filed as of Thursday, including four legislators. Anyone who fails to file by Sept. 4 will face an automatic fine of $25 a day up to a maximum of $1,500. The report raises some red flags but doesnt accuse anyone of unethical con duct in part because the disclosures dont contain the kind of detailed information that Louisiana requires, Krassner said. I wish we did, he said. Then we could fully connect any dots. Research group pans Florida financial disclosure NEW YORK (AP) The number of U.S. children in foster care has dropped for the sixth straight year, falling to about 400,000 compared to more than 520,000 a decade ago, according to new federal figures demonstrating the staying power of reforms even amid economic turbulence. The drop results pri marily from a shift in the policies and practices of state and county child wel fare agencies. Many have shortened stays in foster care, expedited adoptions and expanded preventive support for troubled fami lies so more children avoid being removed from home in the first place. The new figures released by the Department of Health and Human Services show there were 400,540 children in foster care as of Sept. 30. Thats down from 406,412 a year earlier and from about 523,000 in 2002. State by state, the pic ture was mixed with some states extending dramatic declines and the numbers in other states rising. In Pennsylvania, there were 14,161 children in foster care on Sept. 30, down from 15,346 a year earlier and from 21,500 in 2002. In New York, there were 21,473 children in foster care statewide on Dec. 31, down from 26,783 in September 2010. Both states have been pursuing multiple pro grams to reduce the numbers including increased placements of children with relatives in kinship care, greater investment in familypreservation programs so children can stay safely in their own homes, and speedier family reunifica tion if a child is placed in foster care. Florida implemented similar programs, and took advantage of a waiver that allowed broad flexibility in how it spends federal child-welfare funding. We dont want kids in foster care for any rea son for too long, Erin Gillespie, spokeswoman for the Department of Children and Families, said Monday. If they can go back home safely we want to get them home quickly and if not, we want to get them adopt ed. Florida privatized its foster care system nearly a decade ago, contracting out casework and other services, which experts said contributed to a dip in the ranks of kids in care. Its foster care num bers dropped from about 29,000 in 2006 to under 20,000 for the 2011 fiscal year. However, the figure has crept up in the past 18 months, from 18,240 in Jan. 2011 to 19,730 last month. State officials said high profile child abuse cases have resulted in more calls to the states abuse hotline and more abuse investiga tions. They also say sub stance abuse by parents is pushing more kids into foster care. In some areas as many as 70 percent of our inves tigations are related to prescription drug abuse, Gillespie said. One of the most belea guered child-welfare systems at present is Arizonas; the number of children in foster care there rose to 11,535 on Sept. 30 from 9,030 a year earlier. The states child-protection agency has reported difficulties hiring and retaining quali fied staff, and says the risk of child maltreatment has been heightened by economic stress on many families. In Arizonas Pima County, a government office was converted into a childrens shelter on a recent weekend because foster homes and group homes in the Tucson area were full, according to the Arizona Daily Star. Foster care population drops for 6th straight year Lake City Reporter
By STEVEN WINEAssociated PressWIMBLEDON, England Â— Four-time Olympian Venus Williams walked off WimbledonÂ’s Court 2 glee-fully waving her fist as fans chanted, Â“U-S-A! U-S-A!Â” Twenty minutes later, at the other end of the All England Club, Serena Williams departed Court 1 with a triumphant grin and a shout of Â“Wooo!Â” Ten minutes after that, Roger Federer closed out his latest Centre Court vic-tory in pursuit of his first career singles gold medal. A schedule backlog transformed the Olympics at Wimbledon into a parade of Grand Slam champions Monday, with the Williams sisters and Federer all playing at the same time. And all won.Â“What a good day for fans between me, Venus, Roger and all the other players,Â” Serena Williams said. Â“ItÂ’s such a great experience.Â” Venus Williams waited an extra day because of rain to begin her bid for a record fourth gold medal in Olympic tennis, then defeated recent French Open runner-up Sara Errani of Italy 6-3, 6-1. Serena completed a July sweep of PolandÂ’s Radwanska sisters by beat-ing Urszula in the second round, 6-2, 6-3. Federer also reached the third round, beating Julien Benneteau of France 6-2, 6-2. After winning in singles, the Williams sisters began a bid for their third Olympic doubles gold medal by elim-inating Sorana Cirstea and Simona Halep of Romania 6-3, 6-2. They won in 2000 and 2008. Other major champions to advance in singles includ-ed three-time Olympian Lleyton Hewitt, top-seeded Victoria Azarenka, Kim Clijsters, Petra Kvitova, Ana Ivanovic and three-time Wimbledon runner-up Andy Roddick.

By CHRIS JENKINSAssociated PressINDIANAPOLIS Â— Startled awake by an ear-splitting fireworks blast at 6 a.m., then annoyed by an early morning sound check session by the band that was playing the pre-race show, Jimmie JohnsonÂ’s day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway didnÂ’t exactly get off to a winning start. It ended just fine, though Â— with Johnson making plenty of noise of his own. Johnson stamped another exclamation point on his racing resume Sunday, a dominant drive that ended with his fourth career Brickyard 400 victory. Afterward, Johnson was able to laugh about how annoyed he was by the aerial bomb blast that signaled to fans that the trackÂ’s gates were open Â— so annoyed, in fact, that he complained about it with a post on his Twitter account. Â“I thought the motor home next to me blew up,Â” Johnson said. Â“I was look-ing for a fire extinguisher to put out the fire. I guess getting up earlier than I wanted to let me prepare for the day and get ready.Â” Johnson said he got over it quickly, and that he respects that the big boom is part of the trackÂ’s tradition. And heÂ’d better respect Indy tradition, because heÂ’s now a big part of it. With the win, Johnson joined Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jeff Gordon as the only NASCAR drivers to win four times at the historic 2.5-mile track, which has hosted stock car racing since 1994. The victory also puts Johnson among some top names in the trackÂ’s record books. Only three drivers have won four Indianapolis 500s: A.J. Foyt, Rick Mears and Al Unser Sr. Formula One ace Michael Schumacher won the U.S. Grand Prix five times on IndyÂ’s road course configuration. Â“IÂ’m able to join racing legends, my heroes and people I looked up to my entire life,Â” Johnson said. Â“To join them was a huge, huge honor.Â” Johnson took it all in after the race, taking a victory lap in a pace car with his wife, his daughter and his crew guys all piled on board. Kyle Busch finished second, followed by Greg Biffle, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Gordon. Pole sitter Denny Hamlin was sixth. Nobody had a car capable of challenging Johnson, who led 99 of 160 laps. Â“It didnÂ’t really matter if you were in front of him or not, he was going to pass you in about four or five laps anyway,Â” Biffle said. Â“His car was just really, really good.Â” Team owner Rick Hendrick said the win was a testament to the combined talents of Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus. Â“I think the equipment is so equal today, but youÂ’ve got to look at the talent Jimmie has and the talent Chad has and the pit crew and everything else, the feedback, the communica-tions,Â” Hendrick said. Â“IÂ’ve never seen a guy that could drive a car as out of control and make it look in control as Jimmie can.Â” And as the No. 48 team celebrated a victory, anoth-er Hendrick driver solidi-fied his surprising status as a Sprint Cup championship front-runner. With his fourth-place run Sunday, Earnhardt Jr. took over the points lead Â— 14 points ahead of Matt Kenseth, whose day ended early in a crash with Joey Logano. Â“WeÂ’ve persevered all year, and weÂ’ve done good work all year,Â” Earnhardt said. Â“I think it is a bit of a confidence booster, some-thing IÂ’m proud of because weÂ’ve worked hard all year and weÂ’ve got something to show for it.Â” Earnhardt took the points lead at the expense of Kenseth, whose car was banged-up and smoldering after he tangled with Logano. Â“It is crazy there at the end,Â” Kenseth said. Â“You could see the wreck hap-pening and I was just hop-ing I wasnÂ’t going to be in it.Â” It also was a rough day for Carl Edwards, whose engine began losing power only a handful of laps into the race. By PAUL NEWBERRYAssociated PressLONDON Â— Michael Phelps has yet to win a gold medal, and Ryan LochteÂ’s star is fading. So along came Missy Franklin to restore American swim hopes with a gutty perfor-mance at the Olympics on Monday night. Coming back less than 14 minutes after swimming a semifinal heat, the Colorado teenager won the first gold medal of what figures to be a dazzling career, rallying to win the 100-meter backstroke. Â“Indescribable,Â” the 17-year-old Franklin said. Â“I still canÂ’t believe that hap-pened. I donÂ’t even know what to think. I saw my par-entsÂ’ reaction on the screen and I just started bawling. I canÂ’t even think right now.Â” Matt Grevers kept the gold medals coming in rat-a-tat fashion, following up FranklinÂ’s win with one of his own in the menÂ’s 100 back. For good measure, Nick Thoman made it a 1-2 finish for the red, white and blue by taking the silver. Rebecca Soni nearly pulled out a third U.S. gold, rallying furiously on the return leg of the 100 breaststroke. But she couldnÂ’t quite catch blazing Lithuanian Ruta Meilutyte, a gold medalist at the tender age of 15. Good thing for the U.S. that Franklin and the other Americans are coming through. Phelps missed the podium in his 2012 Olympic debut, and Lochte has turned two straight disappointing per-formances after opening the games with a dominant win in the 400 individual medley. He finished fourth and off the podium Monday night in the 200 freestyle, which FranceÂ’s Yannick Agnel won by a full body length against a field with gold medalists galore. On Sunday, Lochte anchored the U.S. in the 4x100 free relay, taking over with a seemingly comfort-able lead. But Agnel chased him down on the final leg, giving France the gold. Now, another defeat.Â“I did my best,Â” Lochte said. Â“I guess sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. I gave it 110 percent. ThereÂ’s probably some things I messed up on, but you live and learn. (Agnel is) a great racer. ThereÂ’s no doubt about it. HeÂ’s quick and he showed it last night and tonight. IÂ’m happy for him. He did good.Â” Franklin, who was rattled less than two weeks before the Olympics by the Aurora theater shooting not far from her home, showed tremendous resiliency rac-ing with such a short break following the semis of the 200 freestyle. She barely advanced in the first race, qualifying for Tuesday nightÂ’s final with the eighth-fastest time, but she was clearly saving something for the one with a medal on the line. AustraliaÂ’s Emily Seebohm, the top qualifi-er, led at the turn and was under world-record pace, but Franklin showed a remarkable finishing kick. With her arms whirling, the 6-foot-1 swimmer passed the Aussie in the final 25 meters and lunged toward the wall for a winning time of 58.33 seconds.

One big par at the end made him a winner Sunday at the Canadian Open. Piercy closed with a 3-under 67, and William McGirt and Robert Garrigus stumbled on the closing stretch at Hamilton Golf & Country Club to finish a stroke back. McGirt, tied for the lead playing the 18th, put his approach into the bunker and blasted out to 18 feet, missing the par putt that would have forced a playoff. Garrigus, the 54-hole leader, missed six putts inside 8 feet. He missed a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th to force a play-off and had to settle for a 70. Pierce finished at 17-under 263 and tied the oldest 72-hole scor-ing record on the PGA Tour. Johnny Palmer had a 263 when he won in 1952 at St. Charles in Winnipeg, Manitoba.Senior British OpenTURNBERRY, Scotland Â— Fred Couples won the Senior British Open, birdieing the final two holes for a two-stroke victory over Gary Hallberg on TurnberryÂ’s Ailsa Course.Evian MastersEVIAN-LES-BAINS, France Â— South KoreaÂ’s Inbee Park won the Evian Masters. U.S. basketball: Pick your poison LONDON T he question was whether the U.S. Olympic basketball team could be beaten. Â“Sometimes a team wants to show that this is their tournament,Â” French coach Vincent Collet said Sunday, after getting blown out 98-71 in SundayÂ’s opener. Â“They did it today.Â” Those were the last two sentences of his answer. The first was how he hoped to have a chance to try again. The dozen or so in between were how Collet had hoped to accomplish it the first time around. All of them can be summarized by something heavyweight-turned-thespian Iron Mike Tyson once famously said: Â“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.Â” In ColletÂ’s case, his plan was to limit turnovers on one end by having his players protect the ball and second-chance points on the other by controlling the defensive boards. The French succeeded at neither, largely because their opponents played without much in the way of opening-night jitters and with way more defensive intensity than some of the packed-with-NBA-superstar squads that USA Basketball sent to the games in the past. That said, itÂ’s not as if the French didnÂ’t know what to expect. They boast a half-dozen NBA players of their own, the second-largest contingent in London, and were the darlings of the U.S.-can-be-beaten crowd. But after hanging tough early Â— France trailed by a point at the end of the first quarter Â— the opportunistic U.S. defense and their own frigid shooting from beyond the 3-point arc (2 of 22) doomed any hopes of an upset. Afterward, the same question put to Collet was put to a few of his players. Tony Parker pronounced the U.S. team would be Â“very, very tough to beat,Â” and none of his teammates objected very loudly. The most optimistic assessment, ultimately, came from the young and freshly minted Portland Trail Blazer millionaire Nicolas Batum. Â“You have to play a 40-minute game, continue to rebound. Take care of the ball and play good defenseÂ” he said. Besides his own team, Batum nominated Spain, Argentina and Brazil. ThatÂ’s no coincidence, since all three gave the U.S. side some trouble on the road to London. After one period Brazil was ahead by 10 and Spain by 1; Argentina cut a 20-point deficit to four. All three eventually got punched in the face. It might not take a perfect storm to sink the U.S. gold medal cruise. Maybe they get into foul trouble early, or fall in love with the three-point shot on a night theyÂ’re not falling. Maybe they run into a team with a point guard who doesnÂ’t turn the ball over and deftly finds his big guys underneath, where the U.S. team has no true center other than Tyson Chandler. Sounds a lot like Spain, when Jose Calderon is handling the ball smartly and feeding big men Pau and Marc Gasol. Â“ItÂ’s a case of ... of ...Â” Turiaf paused, looking for a phrase. He didnÂ’t look pleased, either. Â“A case of Â‘pick your poison?Â’Â” someone offered. Â“Exactly,Â’ he said, nodding gravely.

DEAR ABBY: My nephew Â“GeorgeÂ” -who dumped his wife and children for a barmaid -died recently. He was dead broke, so my sister paid for his funeral. I didnÂ’t attend, but I was told that GeorgeÂ’s cremated remains were put in a whis-key bottle by the barmaid, and the bottle was going to be buried in my motherÂ’s grave. Why my sister, his siblings and his kids went along with this idea IÂ’ll never know. None of us were raised that way. I found out about it only after the service and put a stop to it. As far as IÂ’m concerned, they could have buried him in a condom, but NOT in my motherÂ’s grave! Was I wrong to put a stop to this travesty? -DISGUSTED UNCLE DEAR DISGUSTED UNCLE: No, you werenÂ’t. Your sister, nieces and nephews may have agreed because it seemed like a low-cost way to dispose of GeorgeÂ’s remains. But IÂ’ll bet they didnÂ’t know the cemetery would charge a hefty fee for a second inter-ment. Because your nephew spent his life with a woman who worked in a bar, thereÂ’s a certain symmetry to the idea of a whiskey bottle being used as his urn. I was told of a widow who did the same thing with her husbandÂ’s ashes -and then she had the bottle made into a lamp because her husband Â“lit up her life.Â” Someone should mention it to GeorgeÂ’s grieving lady friend as a way to keep him with her until they can be buried (or scattered) some-where together. DEAR ABBY: I exercise in the pool at a womenÂ’s health club. Several women there share personal infor-mation with each other in loud voices. One of them talks nonstop with anyone she can get to engage with her. By the way, these women are not exercising. They just stand in the pool socializing. Abby, IÂ’m a captive audi-ence! I canÂ’t escape from their chatter. I donÂ’t want to hear about their divorce, colonoscopy or aches and pains. I have mentioned this to the staff with no success. Could you please address voice volume and appro-priate sharing in confined spaces? -FRUSTRATED IN FLORIDA DEAR FRUSTRATED: The staff at the gym may be reluctant to speak to the women because theyÂ’re afraid it will cause them to cancel their memberships. ThatÂ’s why the person who should address the voice volume issue is YOU. The women may be unaware that you can hear every word they say. If asking the magpies to pipe down doesnÂ’t work, then youÂ’ll have to swim at a time when they are not around. DEAR ABBY: I was cleaning out my closets and IÂ’m wondering if there is any advice you can give on donating household items to charity. Is there a right way or wrong way to pack them up? -GAIL IN OSHKOSH, WIS. DEAR GAIL: Any items you decide to donate should be clean and in good working order. If you are getting rid of china or glass-ware, toss anything that is chipped and wrap the rest individually in newspaper so it arrives at its destination without breaking. Clothing should be clean, neatly fold-ed and free of stains. Before giving your things away, ask yourself if you were on the receiving end, would you want it? DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): You canÂ’t please everyone, but you must please yourself. Emotions will mount if you take on too much or you feel pres-sured by someone. Keep things simple and be gra-cious. Your strength of character will impress your greatest rival and critic. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Finish what you start and make a good impres-sion. Greater involvement in something that interests you will help you realize your potential and deter-mine your goals. Show your talent and ask for what you need to excel. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): DonÂ’t sit on the side-lines waiting for a turn. Connect with people who share your sentiments and can help you get ahead. A change in direction or the way you approach a project will spark renewed enthu-siasm. Love is in the stars. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): DonÂ’t let anyone bring you down. Embrace the positive side of life and it will help you get things done. Believe in your abili-ties and you will improve your prospects. ItÂ’s uncer-tainty that keeps you from getting ahead. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Being open and honest with professional and per-sonal partners will improve your chance to get what you want. Being tactful, sincere and understand-ing will work wonders. Keeping secrets will back-fire, leaving you in an awk-ward position. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Detail and precision will be necessary if you want to make a good impression. Set your priori-ties and donÂ’t let anyone talk you into cutting cor-ners that will make you look bad or limit how far you can advance. Network strategically. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Traveling and learning should be emphasized if you want to get ahead or make life changes. Love should not be ignored. Make special plans for two, or get out and mingle with other singles. Self-improve-ments will boost your con-fidence. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Listen carefully, but donÂ’t make decisions based on something that benefits someone else. There is money to be made if you choose to put greater emphasis on what you have to offer. Develop a plan or service that can potentially raise your income. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Share your thoughts, ideas and plans, and you will be offered guidance and hands-on help. A change to the way you live may be inevitable. DonÂ’t sweat it; do what has to be done and move on. Romance is mounting. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): DonÂ’t allow any-one to see your frustration. Invite people who have something to contribute to your plans, and you will make headway. Knowing who and what to let go of will be your key to suc-cess. DonÂ’t let emotions lead you astray. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Make changes that fit your financial situation. A budget will set you on the right path and ease your mind.
