Faculty at Niblack also energized By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comWorking to hit the ground running on the first day of school, the district’s two D schools presented their improvement plans Wednesday during State-of-the-School visits. Columbia County school board members and dis-trict administrators visited Richardson Middle School and Niblack Elementary School to show support for teachers and staff, and to see how the schools are working to improve. Teachers take students in every day and teach them, no matter what happened the night before in that child’s home or what walk of life they come from, said Superintendent Michael Millikin. “We serve families. We serve children.” “We want you to know we are behind Richardson Middle School,” said Steve Nelson, school board chair-man. Nelson said teachers work to make students suc-cessful from elementary to high school. “That’s the only reason we are here,” he said. Before dropping to a D last school year, Richardson was a C for nine years. Richardson Principal Lex Carswell said the grade drop is what happens when a school becomes compla-cent but the grading scale gets harder. “We do not want to be the school that drags the district numbers down,” he said. The school was lower than the district average for FCAT passing rates, but there was a tremendous jump in eighth grade read-ing, he said. District:Watershortageremainsin county From staff reportsThe Suwannee River Water Management District governing board voted Tuesday to remove the water shortage order for several area counties, but Columbia County remains under the order until Sept. 30. The board voted to rescind the water restrictions in Baker, Dixie, Hamilton, Lafayette, Putnam, Suwannee and Taylor counties. Water restrictions will remain in effect until Sept. 30 for the following counties for Alachua, Bradford, Columbia, Gilchrist, Jefferson, Levy, Madison and Union counties. “Although groundwater conditions have rebounded in many areas of the district following cumulative rainfall over the last couple of months, some areas are still facing low and extremely low conditions,” said Megan Wetherington, district senior professional engineer. The shortage order went into effect June 13 and limits residential watering to one day per week based on address. Home addresses ending in 0 or 1 may only water on Monday. Those ending in 2 or 3 may water on Tuesday; 4 or 5 on Wednesday; 6 or 7 on Thursday; and 8 or 9 on Friday. Watering with sprinklers and irrigations systems is prohibited between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. The Amend Order also extends the water restrictions to all unincorporated areas of Alachua County that are located in the St. Johns River Water Management District, in accordance with a delegation agreement between the two water management districts and the Alachua County Board of County Commissioners. “The district is lifting water restrictions in areas that have made significant improvements, but we would like to remind the public that year-round water conservation rules apply to all counties within District boundaries,” said district Executive Director Ann Shortelle.

Horace Thought for the Day MIAMI Young illegal immigrants throughout Florida have begun apply ing for the chance to avoid deportation and earn a work permit. Advocates and lawyers gathered Wednesday in Miami, Orlando and other cities around the state to help youths who may qualify. The new policy was announced by President Barack Obama in June. It allows immigrants who are 30 or younger and arrived in the United States before they turned 16 to apply. They must have been liv ing in the United States for at least five years and be in school or graduated or served in the military. They cannot have been convicted of certain crimes. Mauling victim relieved by vote MIAMI A woman mauled as a child by a pit bull says shes relieved that Miami-Dade County voters decided to keep banning the dogs. Melissa Moreiras inju ries prompted the ban in 1989. She said Wednesday that the ban protects peo ple from aggressive dogs. On Tuesday, 63 percent of voters chose to keep the ban. The Miami Coalition Against Breed Specific Legislation says the ban is too costly and vague. Director Dahlia Canes says the ballot question was confusing. The group will pursue legislative efforts against the ban. The wife of Miami Marlins pitcher Mark Buehrle also criticized the ban. Jamie Buehrle says education about pit bull breeds and responsible pet ownership must continue. Legislative races may get recounts TALLAHASSEE Three legislative races on Floridas primary ballot remain so close that they may be heading for auto matic recounts. The earliest that recounts could begin is Friday when county super visors of elections must submit their official results to the state. With nearly all ballots counted from Tuesdays election, Jeff Clemens led Mack Bernard by only 35 votes for the Democratic nomination in a Palm Beach County Senate dis trict. Both currently are House members. In a House race between two incumbent Democratic representatives, Barbara Watson of Miami Gardens led John Patrick Julien of North Miami Beach by 56 votes. Former Rep. Randy Johnson trailed Cary Pigman by 26 votes in the Republican primary for a House district cov ering parts of St. Lucie, Okeechobee, Highlands and Glades counties. FAMU names interim president TALLAHASSEE Florida A&M University trustees on Wednesday turned to a familiar face to lead the university as it con tinues to deal with the fall out from the hazing death of a marching band member. Trustees confirmed Larry Robinson, who spent time in President Barack Obamas administration, to serve as interim presi dent while the university embarks on a search for a permanent leader. Robinson had been serv ing the university as its number two official since last November the same month that drum major Robert Champion died. He takes the place of James Ammons, who abruptly resigned in July amid the ongoing scrutiny of the uni versity. FPL announces deal with groups TALLAHASSEE The states consumer advocate says hell oppose an agree ment that Floridas largest utility has made with groups representing business and federal agency customers. Florida Power & Light Co. announced the agree ment Wednesday. It would cut the utilitys request for a base rate increase from $690.4 million a year to $378 million beginning in January if approved by the Florida Public Service Commission. Public Counsel J.R. Kelly, though, says that includes additional base rate increas es as new power plants later come on line. Kelly said those increases werent part of the companys original request. FPL officials said much of the base rate increase would be offset at least initially by a reduction in fuel adjustment fees. They also acknowl edged those charges might go up in the future. Young illegal immigrants apply to stay in states n Associated Press LOS ANGELES Kim Kardashians divorce has engulfed her family and network, literally. Attorneys for her estranged husband sought detailed records Wednesday about her real ity shows and details of depositions with her moth er and current boyfriend Kanye West to prove her 72-day marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries was a fraud. The legal bickering means its unlikely the couple will be granted a divorce, or annulment, as Humphries desires, before next year, attorneys and a judge said during a testy hearing. Kardashians attorney Laura Wasser accused Humphries team of over reaching in the effort that has already resulted in $250,000 in legal fees for the model-actress. The acrimony over the breakup led lawyers for Humphries to recently try to serve West with a deposition subpoena disguised in a Nordstroms box at Kardashians home. Humphries attorney Marshall Waller said the lack of cooperation from Wests attorneys and companies that work on Kardashians reality show were delaying the case. He said it could take a twoweek trial if Humphries keeps pursuing an annul ment based on fraud. Waller said at the hear ing that he wanted to prove Kardashian had no inten tion of proceeding with this marriage. That it was basi cally a contrivance for the benefit of her show and to make money, he said. Wasser said the tactic was slowing the legal pro cess and she intended to bill Humphries for her legal fees. To say that Im frustrat ed would be an understate ment, Wasser said in the packed courtroom where 18 other cases were to be called. I am at a loss to fig ure out what the holdup is. ... Its dragging on, its clog ging resources. Jimmy Kimmel to wed shows writer NEW YORK Jimmy Kimmel didnt have to look too far for his new bride. The ABC funnyman is newly engaged to girl friend Molly McNearney. His spokesman, Lewis Kay, said Wednesday that Kimmel popped the question during a recent vacation in South Africas Kruger National Park. McNearney is the co-head writer for the networks Jimmy Kimmel Live. They started dating in 2009, after Kimmels breakup with comic Sarah Silverman. Kimmel is 44 10 years older than his bride. The engagement was first reported by People maga zine. Price is Right seeks male model LOS ANGELES Men, do you have what it takes to be a model on The Price is Right? CBS said Wednesday that the game show known for its female models will add a male one for a week. The Price is Right will hold its first-ever search for the right man in an online competition, the network said. Viewers will choose the winner in October. Hell get a weeklong stint on the show hosted by Drew Carey. The daytime show was long known for its Barkers Beauties, a title that hon ored longtime host Bob Barker, who retired in 2007. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries attend a party thrown in their honor at Capitale in New York. The couples divorce is unlikely to be concluded before the end of the year, with Humphries attorneys seeking detailed records from compa nies that handle the reality starlets shows and the deposi tions of her mother-manager Kris Jenner and current boy friend Kanye West.

BROWN County resident Pamela Porters remaining three dogs were seized by Lake City Humane Society when Porter was issued a citation for animal neglect, accord ing to Executive Director Terry Marques. Formerly the owner of 24 dogs on a small farm in Columbia County, Porter approached animal control several months ago to find new homes for her dogs. The majority of the dogs were underweight and were found to have issues with parasites and, in some cases, infection. Porter had difficulty choosing which dogs to release to the shelter and had decided she wanted to keep several of the dogs. Animal shelter volun teers, employees and Karen Kroll owner of Aussie and Me Rescue -a rescue organization out of South Florida -pushed to have all of the animals collected. We were trying to work with her, Marques said. She assured us that she would be able to care for those dogs. We gave her an allotted amount of time and she failed to do that. Marques said more than the allotted amount of time was given for Porter to get care for her animals before the shelter took action. Were confident that they are being care for now, Marques said of the dogs. The dogs are currently being cared for at a local vet office. They cannot be released for adoption until the case accompany ing the citation has con cluded. Among the three dogs, medical complications exist such as blindness, physical disability and pregnancy. She would just have been starting all over again, Marques said. Volunteer Holli Miller said it was quite a scene when the animals were col lected from Porters home. Its been really frustrat ing, Miller said. The envi ronment is not good for any dog. Miller said Porter initial ly refused to surrender the dogs. She said Columbia County Sheriffs Office was called in to assist. The citation, issued over two weeks ago, will be heard in court on Aug. 21, Miller said. We feel that we have a pretty good case, Marques said. The court will see that she or he [Porters husband] are unable to care for the animals. Porter did not respond to repeated attempts for comment. Humane Society seizes remaining dogs from local woman From staff reports Two residents were arrested and a child taken to medical facil ity for evaluation Tuesday after authorities busted a suspected methamphetamine lab. Lisa Johnson, 27, and Rodney Roga, 27, both of 167 SW Fantasy Glen, were charged with posses sion of meth amphetamine, manufacture of methamphet amine, posses sion of listed chemicals, pos session of drug paraphernalia and cruelty towards a child. Johnson was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $77,500 bond and Roga was booked into jail on $77,000 bond. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, Columbia County MultiJurisdictional Task Force agents went to the Fantasy Glen home shortly after midnight Tuesday to execute a search warrant and encountered very strong chemical odors when they entered the home. Authorities believed that an active or very recent clandestine metham phetamine laboratory was in the home. A young child was found sleeping in the living room of the house and authorities imme diately called for EMS to evalu ate the child for exposure to the hazardous chemicals. Detectives also found a man in the kitchen and an adult female suspect hiding in the garage. Everyone was evacuated from the home until detectives could determine if it was safe to be inside. When the investigation resumed, detectives report edly found materials that were actively processing metham phetamine. One of the vessels was found in the childrens play area of the home. Detectives also seized multiple items of paraphernalia that are commonly used to manufacture methamphetamine. In addition, finished methamphetamine was also seized. Johnson and Roga were arrest ed without incident and taken to jail. The child found in the home was taken to a local hospital for evaluation and released to the custody of a family member, reports said. Two arrested in connection with local meth lab Johnson Roga By TONY BRITT City officials certified Tuesday nights city election results dur ing a city council canvassing board meeting Wednesday after noon. The meeting lasted about 15 minutes and city officials adopt ed resolutions declaring Stephen M. Witt, as the winner of the mayors race, Melinda Moses as the winner of the District 13 council post race and Zack Paulk as the winner of the District 12 council post race. The candidates who won coun cil posts during the election will be sworn in during the November 19 city council meeting, which was established during the last city charter commission review. The focus of the canvassing board meeting was to accept the returns as submitted by the Columbia County Supervisor of Elections Office, said Audrey Sikes, city clerk, who noted pre viously city council post winners were sworn-in to their positions in August the day following the election. The candidates were elected to serve a four year term, but if the tradition continued were winners were sworn in the day following the August election, candidates would only be serving a 3 year, nine-month term, if they did not win their re-election bid. When we realized that was an issue we went ahead backed the swearing in to November, so everyone would get to serve their full four years Sikes. In 2010, city voters by refer endum vote, amended the City Charter Commission, allowing the swearing-in to take place in November.

BY E-MAIL: Q The Orange County Register Q The Washington Times OPINION Thursday, August 16, 2012 4A4AOPINION ANOTHER VIEW E ven as Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan were undergoing their official unveiling Saturday, the TV and social-media talking heads were all atwitter about how this means the new 2012 controversy will be what happens to Medicare. Next, the Republican Dream Duo sucked it up for its first big test: a joint interview on CBS News’ iconic “60 Minutes,” the show famous for tough inter-views revealing bottom-line truths. Perhaps you tuned in, too, seeking a first whiff about the healthcare fate awaiting your family’s senior citizens. But 60 minutes later, you were still waiting. That’s because, to get even a whiff of the day’s only Medicare news, CBS needed to rename the show “61 Minutes and 11 Seconds.” Because CBS cut a one-minute-11-second snippet from Bob Schieffer’s interview of Romney and Ryan -yes, the part that con-tained the Medicare Q&A. Here, courtesy of CBS News, is the snippet you missed: SCHIEFFER: “I have to tell you, the Miami Herald has a ban-ner headline across the front of it this morning that says, ‘Ryan Could Hurt in Florida,’ because they’re talking about Medicare and what you’re talking about -the cuts -“ ROMNEY: “Think about that, by the way. There’s only one president that I know of in history that robbed Medicare, $716 billion to pay for a new risky program of his own that we call Obamacare. Think of that. What Paul Ryan and I have talked about is saving Medicare, is pro-viding people greater choice in Medicare, making sure it’s there for current seniors. No changes, by the way, for current seniors or those nearing retirement. But looking for young people down the road and saying, ‘We’re going to give you a bigger choice. In America, the nature of this coun-try has been giving people more freedom, more choices. That’s how we make Medicare work down the road --” SCHIEFFER: “But you must concede you’re going to have to do a little selling on that and a little explaining.” RYAN: “Our point is we need to preserve their benefits, because government made prom-ises that they organized their retirements around. In order to make sure we can do that, you must reform it for those of us who are younger. And we think these reforms are good reforms that have bipartisan origin. They started from the Clinton Commission in the late ‘90s.” At least someone at CBS News thought that the new Republican team’s Medicare comments were newsworthy. CBS News used that Medicare Q&A on its Sunday evening news to pro-mote its upcoming “60 Minutes.” CBS News spokesman Kevin Tedesco said the network felt “it was important enough to go out as fast as we could get it out.” So, why didn’t it run on “60 Minutes”? “It’s just what we do,” he said. Romney’s accusation that Obama “robbed Medicare” of more than $700 billion and that he was the only president to ever do such a thing merited several follow-ups. Yet there were none, as my old friend Schieffer, whom I’ve always considered the gold standard of TV journalists, con-ducted a courtly introductory interview but didn’t seem to have at his fingertips all the info he needed. Here at the intersection of the news media, policy and politics, we must rise to the challenge of covering politicians who seem determined to weave together facts and falsehoods as a cam-paign comforter. Our thin but vital fact-check resources deserve to be upgraded to Page One and prime-time prominence. T here is a meta-phor so popular in Washington, D.C., that it has become a cliche. The “fiscal cliff.”The cliff is one of Congress’ self-introduced pitfalls that would be the stuff of low com-edy if the consequences weren’t so severe for the country. The Bush tax cuts are set to expire Jan. 1 and across-the-board budget cuts of $110 billion are set to go into effect automatically Jan. 2 if Congress can’t agree on a long-term spending-reduction plan. The combination of largescale tax increases and meat-ax cuts in federal spending could easily send the country back into recession, just as the econ-omy is picking up steam and world confidence in our fiscal house is returning. Congress passed the automatic cuts last year as a way of getting itself out of another self-applied bind. Last year, Congress needed to increase the country’s bor-rowing power by raising the statutory debt ceiling, usually a routine congressional chore. But a Tea Party-led faction in the House said it was willing to wreck America’s creditworthi-ness unless its members got massive spending cuts beyond those already agreed to. The deal Congress inflicted on itself was that harsh auto-matic spending cuts, technically called a “sequester,” would go into effect if a select congres-sional panel could not agree on long-term spending cuts. Few believed that the panel would come up with an accept-able plan or that Congress would approve the plan if it did. The plan did buy time, but it’s running out. In any event, everything is on hold for the duration of the campaign. For the general public, these possible cuts, especially in domestic programs, are still an abstraction. But when they take effect, to name a few examples, there will be massive tie-ups at the bor-ders as customs and immigra-tion personnel are furloughed. Expect similar delays at air-ports, as flights are canceled because of a lack of air-traffic controllers and Transportation Security Administration inspec-tors. Meat prices will rise with-out enough officials to do the required inspections. Federal parks will close for a lack of rangers, and the federal court system will slow to a crawl. If an irate citizen calls to complain about a missing check or a delayed permit, nobody will be there to take the call. Washington is counting on the lawmakers to come back and make this right in a lame-duck session after the elec-tions. But lame-duck sessions are notoriously erratic and, in effect, the parties may find that they have joined hands and jumped over that fiscal cliff. V ice President Joe Biden told a racially mixed audience Wednesday that if Republicans take back the White House, “They’re going to put y’all back in chains.” It’s hard to say what is more offensive: Mr. Biden’s overt use of inflammatory racial symbolism, or someone from Delaware saying “y’all.” Stephanie Cutter, the Obama campaign’s apply-named hatch-et man, claimed Mr. Biden was “using a metaphor to talk about what’s going to happen” and that “the bottom line is that we have no problem with those comments.” That makes sense. There’s no reason for the Obama campaign to apolo-gize because hacking at the raw wound of racism is critical to the Democrats’ reelection strategy. This race is about race because if it were about issues, Democrats would lose. Mr. Obama’s moribund economic record would guarantee that. Democrats haven’t fared well with majority white voters generally at the presidential level. According to Gallup, the only Democratic presidential nominee to win a majority of the white vote in the last 60 years was Lyndon Johnson in 1964. Currently, white men favor Mr. Romney by a 24-point margin, and white women by 7 percent, according to Gallup. White voters are still an overwhelming majority, but Democrats calculate there are enough self-loathing liberals of pallor who will vote for Mr. Obama even as they are being castigated for their ethnicity. Victor Davis Hanson wrote in National Review that the campaign is trying to convince independent white voters that voting for Mitt Romney will mean “becoming socially unac-ceptable; it will be tantamount to embracing a Neanderthal sort of mindset that opposes Obama not on his disastrous economic policies but simply because of his race.” Racial code language and anti-white statements are being tolerated, even lauded, in ways that would spark a firestorm of indignation if directed at any other ethnic group. Def Jam Records co-founder Russell Simmons wrote that Mr. Romney and his running-mate Rep. Paul Ryan are “two men who will destroy our people and laugh all the way to the bank with their rich friends.” MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry quipped that Mr. Ryan quoting the Declaration of Independence, “is a lovely thing to say as a wealthy white man.” She accused him of “misusing” Jefferson’s words by downplay-ing what she “as an African-American woman” sees as the central role of government in the “pursuit of happiness.” Mrs. Harris-Perry echoed a key Obama campaign theme, tying identity politics to gov-ernment handouts. What black leaders once denounced as racism namely the implica-tion that minorities must be dependent on government to survive the Obama White House embraces as a symbol of dignity. This racial jiu-jitsu can backfire. Democrats have abandoned what was prom-ised to be one of Mr. Obama’s strengths in 2008: his alleged ability to rise above the racial divide. Now the president has given up pretending to usher in a post-racial America because his political future depends on exacerbating racial tensions. Mr. Obama no longer seeks to heal the breach but to rub salt in the wound. O peration Fast and Furious is one of the worst law-enforcement scan-dals in American history. It began with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, a branch of the Justice Department, using a “gun walk-ing” scheme to entice U.S. gun dealers – who are licensed by the government – to sell weap-ons to illegal buyers connected to Mexican drug cartels. The guns then were supposed to be tracked to the cartels’ top leader-ship. But the scheme backfired when guns sold during the oper-ation were used to kill Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in 2010 and untold numbers of innocent Mexicans. Attorney General Eric Holder has refused to turn over crucial documents for an inves-tigation by the House Oversight Committee, headed by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Vista. Mr. Holder and President Barack Obama contend the docu-ments are protected by executive privilege. That position, how-ever, doesn’t make sense, John Eastman told us; he’s a professor at Chapman University’s law school. The House is asking for Justice Department communica-tions. “But the White House is adamant it had no involvement in those communications,” he said. “Which makes claiming executive privilege odd. They’re claiming executive privilege for something they weren’t involved in.” Mr. Eastman added that the matter could be decided quickly “because this is purely a legal issue that would not require extensive legal arguments.” However, if the judge assigned to the case was so inclined, delays could push the matter beyond the Nov. 6 election. “If the judge rules for the House, then the documents have to be released,” Mr. Eastman said. “Otherwise, there would be judicial contempt on top of contempt, which could be an impeachable offense.” We hope the judge either settles this mat-ter quickly, or Holder follows the law and releases the documents.Fast,furiousand fatal Q Martin Schram writes political analysis for Scripps Howard News Service.

Also every Richardson student who took the Algebra 1 End of Course Assessment passed last year, compared to 98 per cent districtwide, he said. The data here at Richardson Middle School is not bad, but its not good, he said. To improve, the school will increase instruction time in all classes, have regular meetings to talk about individual students ability to master skills and teach students how to take notes and study effectively, Carswell said. Its important for stu dents to master core stan dards, not just make an A in class, he said. The school will also borrow math and science coaches from Columbia High School and use criti cal thinking classes. It is not a competition, but Richardson wants chil dren zoned for the school to attend, not go to another school, he said. It is a thought process in the community that has to shift, Carswell said. School board member Linard Johnson asked how the school will handle disci pline issues this year. Carswell said the school is focused on being positive and every student will start school with a fresh slate Monday. I feel good right now in the direction this school is going, said Glenn Hunter, school board member. Keith Hudson, school board member, said he appreciated the enthusi asm at the meeting. You are the ones that get it done in the classroom, he told teachers. Charles Maxwell, school board member, said improvement is difficult, but the boards job is to remove obstacles for teach ers. Carswell said the visit was helpful for teachers as its important for them to them to feel supported by the school board. Niblack encouraged Later in the morning at Niblack, first-year principal Marilyn Gassett laid out her plan to improve the school, which earned an A as recently as 2009. An educator for 27 years, Gassett was a classroom teacher at Fort White Elementary before mov ing to Niblack. A National Board Certified teacher and doctoral student, she was also a behavior resource teacher and a physical edu cation teacher. Achievement levels fluc tuated widely the past sev eral years at the school, but the school will work to improve and maintain achievement this year, she said. Research shows low-per forming students needs progress monitoring, so instruction will be driven by data, Gassett said. Data speaks volumes, she said. Teachers will hold regu lar data meetings, maintain notebooks on student pro gression and add several proven learning programs and systems, she said. We are going to have to believe in ourselves, Gassett said. Our commu nity, our school, our babies, they deserve our best, she said. With a new extended day, students will have an inten sive reading lab with direct teacher instruction, small groups and state-adopted, research-based programs, she said. It will make a difference in these childrens educa tion, Gassett said. I believe that today was important to let our teach ers know we believe in Niblack, she said. Improvement will take time and consistency, she said, but hard work pays off. These babies can learn, Gassett said. Im glad to be here and I welcome the challenge, she said. Board member Johnson said he was impressed with Gassetts leadership and enthusiasm. Im excited about what Ive heard, he said. Johnson called on par ents and the community to support the school and get kids to school on time, every day. Several teach ers in the audience nodded their heads in agreement. Glenel Bowden, Lake City resident and former city council member, attended both State-ofthe-School visits to show community support for the schools. Bowden said he has three grandchildren who attend Niblack and Richardson, schools he and his wife went to growing up in Lake City. The schools have high poverty levels, but it is not the childrens fault, he said. The schools have improved before and they can again, Bowden said. I really want to see the schools turn around, he said. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, AUGUST 16, 2012 Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 6A They are solely working overtime, Campbell said. The TDC plans to hire a number of part-time employees to staff need ed tournament positions. Campbell said five employ ees have already been hired for that purpose and the TDC intends to hire several more. Well be paying $10 an hour which should signifi cantly decrease our labor costs in the new year, Campbell said. The county commission has approved the termina tion of the TDCs contract to care for median islands or stretches of greenway in the middle of the road on US-90. The landscaping of the islands was previously sponsored by local busi nesses such as Texas Roadhouse, Wal-Mart and Hampton Inn. The TDC will cease its responsibility for the islands Dec. 31. The city will have control over the islands after that date. The large electronic sign controlled by TDC locat ed west of I-75 has been repaired after previous complications arose in con trolling the sign. It was discovered that the data cable connected to the sign had been chewed through by a squirrel, caus ing the sign to malfunction. The wire was replaced and the sign is operational. The wires need to be put in conduit to avoid another squirrel issue, Campbell said.

Vine Academy of the Arts vol untary requested to defer open ing until the 2013-14 school year.

Associated Press CANBERRA, Australia Australias highest court upheld the worlds toughest law on cigarette promotion Wednesday, prohibiting tobacco com pany logos on cigarette packs that will instead show cancer-riddled mouths, blinded eyeballs and sickly children. The High Court reject ed a challenge by tobacco companies who argued the value of their trade marks will be destroyed if they are no longer able to display their distinctive colors, brand designs and logos on packs of ciga rettes. Starting in December, packs will instead come in a uniformly drab shade of olive and fea ture dire health warnings and graphic photographs of smokings health effects. The government, which has urged other countries to adopt simi lar rules, hopes the new packs will make smoking as unglamorous as pos sible. Many countries mandate that packages display photos or text describing smokings health effects, and some limit the size of the branding or ban certain slogans, but Australias dual approach would be the strictest globally. Many other countries around the world ... will take heart from the suc cess of this decision today, Attorney General Nicola Roxon told report ers after the court ruling. Governments can take on big tobacco and win and its worth countries looking again at what the next appropriate step is for them, she added. British American Tobacco, Philip Morris International, Imperial Tobacco and Japan Tobacco International worry the law will set a global precedent that could slash billions of dollars from the values of their brands. They chal lenged the new rules on the grounds that they vio late intellectual property rights and devalue their trademarks. The cigarette makers argued that the govern ment would unfairly benefit from the law by using cigarette packs as a platform to promote its own message, without compensating the tobac co companies. Australias constitution says the gov ernment can only acquire the property of others on just terms. The court also ordered the tobacco companies to pay the governments legal fees, but its reasons for the judgment wont be released until later this year. Philip Morris said it would continue to pursue compensation through the terms of a bilat eral investment treaty between Australia and Hong Kong. There is still a long way to go before all the legal questions about plain packaging are fully explored and answered, company spokesman Chris Argent said in a statement. British American Tobacco spokesman Scott McIntyre said the com pany was disappointed but would comply with the law. Although the (law) passed the constitutional test, its still a bad law that will only benefit organized crime groups which sell illegal tobacco on our streets. ... The illegal cigarette black market will grow further when all packs look the same and are easier to copy, McIntyre said in a statement. Imperial Tobacco echoed that argument. Plain packaging will simply provide counter Associated Press CLEVELAND John Wise watched a tear roll down his wifes face as he stood along side her bed in the intensive care unit. Shed been unable to speak after suffering a stroke and seemed to be blinking to acknowledge him, Wise confided to a friend who had driven him to the hospital. The couple had been married 45 years and Wise told his friend that they had agreed long ago they didnt want to live out their years bedridden and disabled. So a week after Barbara Wises stroke, investigators say, her husband fired a single round into her head. She died the next day, leading prosecutors to charge the 66-year-old man with aggravated murder Wednesday in what police suspect was a mercy killing. The shooting leaves authori ties in a dilemma some experts say will happen with greater frequency in coming years as the baby boom generation ages what is the appropriate pun ishment when a relative kills a loved one to end their suffering? More often than not, a hus band who kills an ailing wife never goes to trial and lands a plea deal with a sentence that carries no more than a few years in prison, research has shown. In some instances, there are no charges. Its a tragedy all around that the law really isnt designed to address, said Mike Benza, who teaches law at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. A New York man in March was sentenced to six months in jail after suffocating his 98-yearold disabled mother and slitting his own wrists. He told authori ties he had just been told he had cancer and believed he was going to die soon, and feared no one would care for his mom. A Washington state man accused of shooting his terminally ill wife this year told investigators she had begged him to kill her; he is free on bail while prosecutors weigh charges. Almost always, there are deeper issues involved with the accused, including depres sion, their own health problems and the stress of taking care of a dying spouse, said Donna Cohen, head of the Violence and Injury Prevention Program at the University of South Florida. Seeing a dying or disabled spouse suffering can be enough to push someone over the edge, said Cohen, who is writing a book called Caregivers Who Kill. Men will hit a wall when they cant do anything else, she said. Thats usually a trigger. She worries this will hap pen more often with longer life expectancies and a continuing shortage of mental health ser vices for older people. In the early 2000s, testifying a Florida legislative committee, Cohen cited research showing that two in five homicide-sui cides in the state involved people 55 and older. The number of cases grew among older people while staying the same with those under 55. Police say Wise took a taxi from his home in Massillon, calmly walked into his 65-yearold wifes room on Aug. 4 at Akron General Medical Center without drawing any attention, and shot her. Juries are often sympathetic to those who kill a spouse out of what is portrayed to be love and compassion, but the mes sage that sends is unclear, said Wesley J. Smith, a California lawyer who wrote a 2006 book Forced Exit: Euthanasia, Assisted Suicide and the New Duty to Die. Wheres the stopping point? he said. There almost comes to become a cultural acceptance that certain people are better off dead than alive. Those who kill a loved one to end the suffering are acting out of their interests, he said. Were really putting Grandpa out of our misery, Smith said. Wises lawyer has said that he was a good man who was devoted to his wife. I am absolutely confident that everything that hes ever done for his wife has been done out of deep love, including the events that just recently transpired, said attorney Paul Adamson. The former welder also suf fered from nerve damage that made his hands and feet numb, survived bladder cancer and had diabetes, said Terry Henderson, a 30-year steel plant co-worker. Those issues could help his case if it goes to trial. The facts surrounding her death are sym pathetic and may actually foster a plea before trial, said Jeff Laybourne, a prominent Akron defense attorney. But just because his wife may have been suffering isnt a valid defense under the law, Laybourne said. Other factors that could deter mine whether the case goes to trial include the timing of the shooting and that it happened in such a public place. Henderson thinks Wise may have snapped under the weight of both of their health concerns. He never dreamed, given his his tory of medical problems, that this would happen to her before hed go, Henderson said. That kind of situation can be deeply depressing for a person dependent on the care of a spouse who suddenly is disabled, said Dr. Peter DeGolia, a physician spe cializing in care for the aging at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland. If this man was dependent on his wife for care and basic wellbeing, and suddenly shes gone, hes going to feel very vulnerable, highly at risk, he said. Older white males are the highest risk group for carrying out suicide plans. Its a scenario that DeGolia said can be defused with help from social workers and hospice care for the dying. There are lots of options, he said, aside from going and shooting them. Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, AUGUST 16, 2012 7A 7AHEALTH Mercy killing or murder?

The legislation will make the counterfeiters job both cheaper and eas ier by mandating exactly how a pack must look. Australias Health Minister Tanya Plibersek dismissed those claims, saying there are still mea sures to prevent counter feiting, such as the use of alphanumeric codes on legitimate cigarette packs. Australia faces a potential challenge to its laws through the World Trade Organization, with three tobacco growing countries Ukraine, Honduras and the Dominican Republic making official requests for consultation on plain packaging. Consultations are the first stage of the WTOs dispute resolution process. These countries argue that the laws contravene Australias international obligations in respect to trade-related aspects of intellectual property. Roxon said while coun tries had raised with Australia the trade impli cations of the laws, her government would fight to maintain them. Its never been assert ed successfully around the world in any trade dispute that governments are not allowed to take public health measures to protect their community, she said. Ross McKenzie, a Macquarie University lecturer on health stud ies, said it was likely that the tobacco industry was behind the WTO chal lenge. From everything Ive read, the challenges wont be particularly strong, McKenzie said. The trademarks arent being expropriated; theyre being restricted in their use, which is quite different. Therere lots of trademarks that are restricted by lots of gov ernments, he added. Tobacco advertis ing was banned from Australian television and radio in 1976. Restrictions on advertising have tightened over the years to include print ads, the Internet and retail outlets. Smokers account for 17 percent of Australias population, compared with around 20 percent of American adults. With high taxes aimed at dissuading smokers, a pack of 25 cigarettes retails in Australia for about 16 Australian dol lars ($17). BAN: Cigarette packs will show damage.

Indians making strides toward two-platoon plan. INDIANS continued on 2BCountdown on JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High assistant coach Dennis Dotson helps Zedri ck Woods stretch out during Wednesday’s practice. Allen speaks highly of his new playersBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comThe final countdown is on with just over a week remaining until Columbia High football straps on the pads for the first time this season. The Tigers will host Santa Fe High at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 24 at Tiger Stadium. While the defense looks to be a strength again this year, head coach Brian Allen said the Tigers are breaking in a few new starters to replace graduating seniors. Still, the coach expects big things out of his young players. “We have a young secondary with Rock (Battle) and Zedrick Woods,” Allen said. “I’m not concerned with them. Rock is a heck of an athlete and Zedrick can be as good as any to come through our system.” The biggest challenge for Battle will be learning the new position after switching from running back during his first two season. “He has to have his responsibility,” Allen mentioned as one of Battle’s biggest keys to succeeding at corner. For Woods, it’s just a matter of playing time. “He’s young with the defense and just has to get comfortable with what we do, but he has the potential,” Allen said. The Tigers also look to keep freshman Roger Cray with the varsity — one of two freshman that could start with the varsity this fall — and he’ll get some playing time in the secondary. “He’s in ninth grade, but has the ability to be one of the best,” Allen said. Jake Thomas will serve as a backup quarterback and is the other freshman on the varsity squad. As far as the rest of the defense goes, Allen is also pleased with his key returnees. “Javere Smith missed the first day and I had to get on him a little about that, but he’s been consistent ever since,” Allen said. “Trey Marshall has worked hard and he’s one we’re counting on. Tyrone Sands has done well. All the main guys, we’ll be counting on.” By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Fort White High football had its only two-a-day practice on Tuesday and it took most of the day. “We had to dodge the rain this afternoon,” Jackson told the Fort White Quarterback Club on Tuesday. “We prac-ticed in the morning, but when we went out in the afternoon we saw lightning. We went to the gym and came back out to finish up. The guys are a little exhausted, but we got some good work out of them.” Jackson said the practice on Tuesday was vid-eoed from the back of a truck, and players were able to watch the film after practice. “We are headed in the right direction,” Jackson said. “We have still got work to do, especially on the offensive and defensive lines.” Jackson said the Indians were carrying 27 players on the varsity. It includes three transfers from Santa Fe High at the beginning of fall practice and two oth-ers joined this week — one from Columbia High and one from Eastside High. Transfers, in and out, come with the territory. “Every one that has come to Fort White has Perfect game! All hail the KingBy TIM BOOTHAssociated PressSEATTLE — King Felix now has a crowning achievement. Felix Hernandez pitched the Seattle Mariners’ first perfect game and the 23rd in baseball history, over-powering the Tampa Bay Rays in a brilliant 1-0 vic-tory Wednesday. The Mariners’ ace and former AL Cy Young Award winner has long talked of his desire to achieve pitch-ing perfection. He finally accomplished it against the Rays, striking out the side twice and finishing with 12 strikeouts. It was the third perfect game in baseball this season — a first — joining gems by Chicago’s Philip Humber against the Mariners in April and San Francisco’s Matt Cain against Houston in June, and it was the sixth no-hitter. “I don’t have any words to explain this,” Hernandez said to the crowd, speaking on the field after the final out. “I’ve been working so hard to throw one and today is for you guys.” Desmond Jennings pinch hit for Jose Lobaton to open the ninth. Hernandez got ahead 1-2 before Jennings fouled off two straight and Hernandez fanned him on a 92 mph fastball down in the zone. Jeff Keppinger bat-ted for Elliot Johnson and grounded out to shortstop on a 1-2 pitch. With one out to go, Sean Rodriguez got ahead of Hernandez 2-0. Hernandez came back with two straight breaking balls for strikes and ended perfection with a called third strike. Hernandez (11-5) threw his arms up to the sky and was mobbed by his teammates at the pitch-er’s mound. He embraced catcher John Jaso for a few seconds and then shared hugs with the rest of his teammates. “It was in my mind, the whole game, it was in my mind,” Hernandez said. It was the second no-hitter this season for the Mariners — doubling the franchise’s total enter-ing the year — and third total at Safeco Field after the park went more than a dozen years without one. After Humber’s perfect game, a six-pack of Seattle pitchers tossed a combined ASSOCIATED PRESSSeattle Mariners starting pitcher Felix Hernandez throws a gainst the Tampa Bay Rays in the fourth inning of a baseb all game on Wednesday in Seattle.

DEAR ABBY: Wouldn’t it make sense if grade school teachers set aside time, weekly or monthly, to go over some very generic information that kids need to learn? I’m talking about things like how important it is to have pets neutered and why, how to manage money, and show them what the average dad earns and what it costs to run a household and support a family. It might help kids to grow up understanding that money isn’t free and get them past the “gimmes.” There are so many topics that ought to be introduced to youngsters at an early age -how to groom them-selves properly, be exposed to a variety of music genres, teach them how grandpar-ents can use help even from small children. They could be taught to be aware of their surroundings, to real-ize that foul language isn’t an attribute and why it’s important to be pleasant. There are so many topics. Ten minutes a week on different topics would suf-fice. Why not? -CHAPLIN, CONN., READER DEAR READER: Why not? Because teachers are so overwhelmed trying to get their students to learn enough basic curriculum to pass the state mandated tests that they don’t have time! Reading your letter I couldn’t help but wonder whose children you are describing. All of the topics you mentioned are things children should learn from their parents. DEAR ABBY: I have just started back into the dating scene after my divorce and being single for five years. I had a vasectomy when I was married, and I’m wonder-ing at what point I should tell prospective dates this information. -SNIPPED IN ONTARIO, CANADA DEAR SNIPPED: Raise the subject as soon as a woman mentions the idea of wanting children. It should certainly be discussed before you have sex. P.S. Because vasectomies have been known to fail, and won’t prevent someone from picking up an STD, you should always make sure you and your partner are protected. Use a con-dom. DEAR ABBY: Several years ago we bought a used sofa at a garage sale. It is now falling apart. A friend of mine in the hotel business offered me an almost new sofa bed from a room that was being redecorated. It matches the colors in our game room perfectly. My wife said, “You can’t bring hotel furniture into the house. Yuck!” My logic is this: Why can’t our kids sleep on a hotel bed in our house if our other houseguests are using the kids’ rooms? We would use our clean sheets, and they sleep on the sofa beds in the hotels we stay in. My wife will sleep in a hotel bed that 100 percent of the guests sleep in, but she doesn’t want a bug-free sofa bed that about 5 percent of hotel guests have used in our home for occasional use. Am I cheap, or am I married to a clean freak? -WHO’S BEEN SLEEPING IN MY BED? DEAR WHO’S BEEN SLEEPING: Not knowing you better, I can’t say wheth-er or not you’re cheap. But your wife should know that many people buy used hotel furniture, and selling it is big business. The sofa bed could be cleaned and sanitized and the mattress replaced. (Inquire about it at any furniture store that sells sofa beds.) But don’t push your wife into taking it or the person who winds up sleeping on it could be you. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Network, share your interests and expand your friendships and business relationships. Take care of your health and avoid making decisions based on incomplete evidence. Time is on your side, so relax and focus on what’s best for you. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t make choices based on hearsay. It’s important to find out first-hand what is expected and what you can do to keep the peace. Schedule a meeting with someone you feel has the experience or knowledge you require. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll learn a lot from a friend or relative if you discuss your options. Alternative choices can be implemented simply, if you are open to trying something new. A work relationship will grow if you inspire one another to be more creative. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t let the past hold you back. Take care of matters that will make you look bad if not addressed. A change of plan or direc-tion will cause stress. Try to continue moving for-ward regardless of what someone else chooses to do. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Finish what you start or you will send out a nega-tive signal. Emotions may surface, but if you let your feelings deter you from reaching your goals, you will lose confidence and the support of individuals you need on your team. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Deliver what you promise. It will be difficult to maintain a good reputa-tion if you keep changing your mind. Your best efforts will develop by put-ting your experience and efficiency to work. Grant favors and win support. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Do your own thing and you’ll attract positive attention. A change in your relationships can be expected. Learn from your past mistakes and rekindle friendships you miss. Love may hold you back if you are stuck in a stagnant relationship. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Being secretive will save you from loss. Focus your attention on personal changes that show your skills in an unusual way. Keeping up with the times while holding on to tradi-tion and cultural beliefs will pay off. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take care of important matters before you move on to pleasur-able pastimes. A financial gain will result if you are conscientious and indus-trious. You are overdue for a personal change that will ease stress and improve your romantic life. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Keep a tight grip on your money. A partnership based on give-and-take can turn into a lifelong relationship. Don’t be afraid to use unusual tactics to get your way. Catching someone off guard will help you gain control. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Put greater faith in a partnership. You stand to gain personally and pro-fessionally if you are easy to get along with. You can gain much from expanding your interests and respect-ing others. Sign contracts and deal with pending settlements. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Keep on top of the way you feel and how you affect others. Love is high-lighted, and special plans will be well-received. A change at work may lead to uncertainty, but the outcome will benefit you in the end. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

ASSOCIATED PRESS New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow warms up prior to an NFL preseason football game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday in Cincinnati. Tebow balancing faith, fame and football with Jets By DENNIS WASZAK Jr. Associated Press CORTLAND, N.Y. The most important call of Tim Tebows day comes far away from the huddle. Its usually sometime at night, when football is the furthest thing on the New York Jets backup quarter backs mind. Thats a rare moment these days for Tebow, particularly during training camp. But one of his closest friends an accountability partner, as he describes him is always a phone call away to keep his priorities in order. For No. 15, that means God is No. 1. Family comes second. Football is a distant third. Hes someone I pray with, Tebow said in a recent sit-down with The Associated Press prefer ring to keep his friends identity private. Hell ask me: Hey, did you get in the Word today? Were you praying today? I have him because I need someone who is always investing in me, you know? You dont ever want to become complacent. Thats very easy to do because life gets in the way. Especially when youre one of the most popular people on the planet. Tebows every move on the field is scrutinized, from how he throws to how he runs or, as was the case early in camp, how he jogs shirtless through the rain after practice. Off the field, hes easily rec ognized by even the most casual of football fans. Being on the cover of GQ magazines latest issue that hit newsstands Tuesday the quarterbacks 25th birthday with a photo of a bare-chested Tebow in a Jesus-like pose from a few years ago accompany ing the story helps. It all makes things predictably tough when youre just try ing to be normal. Deep down, he under stands that hes anything but. Thats why Tebow, a devout Christian, leans on his faith constantly, even during the dog days of training camp when prayers and playbooks could get muddled in his mind. Theres football, wanting to get in an extra workout, wanting to go to an extra meeting, said Tebow, who is expected to be used in a variety of ways by the Jets this season. Thats when your priorities get jumbled, maybe for an hour, maybe for a day, maybe for a week or maybe for a year. I dont want that to happen to me. Its a constant battle. Its non-stop. Thats why its always good to have people around you who hold you accountable. My friend doesnt tell me what I want to hear. He tells me what I need to hear, and thats important. Florida QB Driskel has bruised shoulder blade By MARK LONG Associated Press GAINESVILLE Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel has a bruised shoulder blade, but coach Will Muschamp says the sophomore wont miss any playing time. There had been reports Tuesday that the nations top quarterback recruit in 2011 broke his left, non-throwing shoulder and would be out indefinitely. Muschamp said that is not the case. I dont know how some of these things get caught like wildfire travel, the coach said. Muschamp said Driskel injured his shoulder during practice Sunday, the first day QBs did not wear red, non-contact jerseys. Driskel iced it Sunday night and Monday, and then partici pated in a walk-through and meetings before going to the teams athletic trainer. Driskel told the trainer his shoulder was still sore and that he thought he should get it checked. Tests revealed a bruised scapula, Muschamp said. Driskel is still able to prac tice and throw, but is being held out of contact drills. The QBs are back to wear ing red, non-contact jerseys in practice. It was not like it was some big-time blow that occurred or he went down and 14 guys fell on top of him, Muschamp said. It was nothing like that. He didnt go to the ground. He will not miss one rep that he would normally take. Muschamp said Driskel will be re-evaluated Monday and again Aug. 27, and the injury hasnt affected the competition between Driskel and Jacoby Brissett to earn the starting job for the season opener against Bowling Green. The coach also said he did not regret allowing the quarterbacks to be full-contact Sunday and Monday the only stipu lation was they werent to be taken to the ground because he felt they needed the live repetitions. That was something we needed to do, Muschamp said. It was very produc tive for them and for our football team. Driskel saw action in five games last season, completing 16 of 34 pass es for 148 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions. no-hitter against the Dodgers in June. After the six Seattle pitchers Kevin Millwood, Charlie Furbush, Brandon League, Tom Wilhelmsen, Stephen Pryor and Lucas Luetge. He never did struggle. He kept making good pitch es the whole way through, Jaso said. The last at-bat of the game, falling down 2-0, he just kept his confidence. It was great. Unlike Cains perfect game in June, Hernandez didnt need the help of a career-high in strikeouts or spectacular catches. Hernandez cruised through the first five innings with little trouble. The most concerning moment may have been Sam Fulds deep fly ball to right center lead ing off the game that Eric Thames tracked down on the edge of the warning track. Evan Longorias line drive leading off the fifth eluded Hernandezs glove but was directly at second baseman Dustin Ackley. Hernandez struck out the side in the sixth, retir ing Rodriguez on a check swing to finish the inning and ending the frame hav ing thrown just 69 pitches. Fuld tapped out to second to open the seventh and B.J. Upton grounded out to shortstop for the second out. Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon was then ejected for arguing balls and strikes. Maddon became incensed when plate umpire Rob Drake called strike one on Matt Joyce on a fastball that appeared outside. Maddon argued for a couple of min utes before returning to the Rays clubhouse. Joyce worked the count to 3-2, the third three-ball count Hernandez reached, before hitting an inning-ending groundout. Seattle didnt do much in the bottom of the seventh, but it was a long inning for Hernandez on the bench, extended even further by Ryans nine-pitch at-bat that culminated in an inningending grounder. The wait didnt hamper Hernandez, who struck out Longoria on a biting breaking ball to start the eighth. With chants of Lets Go Felix! from the crowd, Hernandez struck out Ben Zobrist. The chant grew in volume as Hernandez got ahead 1-2 to Carlos Pena and he fin ished off his second inning striking out the side with a punchout of Pena. It was the fifth time this season Hernandez has struck out 10 or more. Most of his outs were on the infield with only five fly ball outs.
