Voters fired up over cold calls


Automated system succeeds in reminding,

MIKE WRIGHT

Chronicle
In recent weeks, both major political
parties have gotten their message out to
voters about the special June 26 gener-
al election.
Now voters have a message of their
own: Back off.
A plan by Democrats and
Republicans to remind voters of the
special election is backfiring with some
people who apparently have had


voters in the county

enough of political phone calls.
Both parties are making automated
cold calls to voters asking if they need
absentee ballots. If the voter wants a
ballot, the caller instructs him or her to
press a number on the phone pad, and
the voter is automatically patched
through to the Citrus County
Supervisor of Elections Office.
Problem is, many voters are confused
to find themselves on the line with an
elections worker.
"Some of these people don't know
they're being patched through and they

Susan Gill said. "We answer the phone,
'Can we help you?' And they say, 'Well,

Gill said several dozen voters were
so enraged they wanted to cancel their
registration. Gill said her office work-
ers talked most people out of doing
that, but 40 or 50 people switched polit-
ical party to no-party affiliation.
"Every election there's some new
wrinkle," Gill said. "People are really
getting upset with the political
process."
Party leaders in Citrus County say
the calls are the best way to remind vot-
ers - or, in many cases, outright
informing them - of the special elec-
tion for state Senate District 3 and state
representative District 43.

Anne Fusillo had wanderlust in her
veins.
It was nothing for her and her hus-
band, Frank, or daughter Marianne to
zip off to Venice, Portugal, Hawaii - or
to Africa for a safari.
To her, the world was meant to see
and experience. With every souvenir
she brought back, she also brought back
a dozen stories surrounding it.
"Wherever she went, there was
always something to love," said daigh-


ter Marianne Becktel. "She loved
getting into the native customs
and learning all she could."
Anne Fusillo died June 7. She
was 85.
Born in Lansford, Penn., to
Slavic parents, Anne grew up as
a coal miner's daughter. Her
grandfather and father were
both well known in the commu- A

errands for her grandfather.
One day she went to a coal-mining
executive's house and saw a beautifully

NASA: Shuttle's

shield will hold
Associated Press
HOUSTON - Atlantis was
cleared Saturday to return to
Earth this coming week after
the space shuttle's heat shield
was judged capable of surviv-
ing the intense heat of re-entry,
and a U.S. astronaut reached a
milestone with the longest sin-
gle spaceflight by any woman.
Atlantis is set to land at Cape
Canaveral on Thursday,
although NASA officials were
still deciding whether to keep
the shuttle at the international
space,station for an extra day
because of a failure of comput-
ers that control the station's
orientation and oxygen pro-
duction.
"That's great news," Atlantis
commander Rick Sturckow
said of the landing plan.
The shuttle's 11-day space
station construction mission
had already been extended to
13 days so a thermal-protec-
tion blanket could be fixed
during an unscheduled space-
walk NASA has been particu-
larly sensitive about the space
shuttles' heat shields since the
Columbia accident killed
seven astronauts in 2003.
Also Saturday, U.S. astro-
naut Sunita "Suni" Williams
set a record for the longest sin-
gle spaceflight by any woman.
Williams, who has lived at the
space station since December,
surpassed the record of 188
days set by astronaut Shannon
Lucid at the Mir space station
in 1996.
"It's just that I'm in the right
place at the right time,"
Williams, 41, said when
Mission Control in Houston
congratulated her on the
record. "Even when the station
has little problems, it's just a
beautiful, wonderful place to

Computer glitch causes
long airport lines
An eight-hour computer glitch
caused lengthy delays for pas-
sengers going through customs
at South Florida airports, author-
ities said Saturday.
The nationwide glitch in U.S.
Customs and Border
Protection's computer system
meant that everything normally
done by computer had to be
done manually.
The glitch lasted from about 6
a.m. to 2 p.m., U.S. Customs
and Border Protection
spokesman Zachary Mann said.
Lines for U.S. citizens were
more than two and a half hours
long. Lines for non U.S. citizens
were more than three hours.
The Broward County Aviation
Department and sheriff's office
brought in additional staff to
handle the delays, Fort
Lauderdale-Hollywood
International Airport spokesman
Greg Meyer said.
' "We were handing out bottled
water to keep people appeased
as best we could," Meyer said.
The long lines were exacer-
bated by poor weather and
large groups traveling together.
The problem has been fixed,
Mann said.
"We're processing everyone
as quickly as possible and we're
asking them to bear with us and
we certainly understand the
angst they might have had," he
said.
Miami International Airport
spokesman Marc Henderson
said he was not aware of any
delays.

Dolphin necropsy shows
no cause of death
Preliminary findings from a
necropsy performed on a calf
born to a deaf Atlantic bot-
tlenose dolphin show no appar-
ent cause of death, officials said
Saturday.
The nearly eight-hour animal
autopsy that began Friday was
performed by an independent
veterinarian selected by the
National Marine Fisheries
Service, Robert Lingenfelser,
president of the Marine Mammal
Conservancy, said.
"After a thorough and detailed
necropsy, we could not find an
apparent cause of death,"
Lingenfelser said. "There was
nothing obvious."
Multiple tissue samples and
major organs are being submit-
ted to several independent labs.
It could take months for tests to
be completed, he said.
The dolphin was only five
days old when it died Friday. His
mother, Castaway, appears to
be in good condition.
Castaway originally stranded
off Vero Beach in November
and was initially deemed healthy

Man gets three life
sentences in shooting
A man received three sen-
tences of life in prison for fatally
shooting a sandwich store clerk
and attempting to kill another
during a 2004 robbery.
Phillip Austin Jr. killed 22-
year-old Subway employee
Danielle Miller because she did-
n't open the cash drawer fast
enough, witnesses said. He also
shot Dorothy Hayes in the stom-
ach.
A judge on Friday sentenced
Austin to two life sentences for
the shootings and another life
sentence for two charges or rob-
bery with a firearm. He is not eli-
gible for parole,
Austin shot Miller twice and
Hayes once. Assistant State


Attorney Doug Covington said
he tried to shoot Hayes again,
but the gun jammed.
Hayes and two of Austin's
accomplices testified at the trial.

Volunteers track butterfly populations


Associated Press


MIAMI - The volunteers tote a butter-
fly net, binoculars and field guides around
the Miami Metrozoo grounds, scanning
the plants and flowers for fluttering wings.
But they aren't searching for a rare
species or collecting specimens for dis-
play - they're counting butterflies for the
Florida Butterfly Monitoring Network,
then leaving the insects to continue their
zigzagging flights through the humid air
As the summer butterfly watching sea-
son warms up, researchers hope similar
counts organized by the North American
Butterfly Association and a few separate
state monitoring networks will contribute
new data to help track butterfly popula-
tions and develop land management
strategies.
The counts turn butterfly enthusiasts
into citizen scientists who record butterfly
sightings in city and suburban parks, zoo-
owned conservation lands and other open
spaces-.across the L.S, Canada and
Mexico
Basic counting gives researchers a pic-
ture of where butterflies currently thrive,
and alerts them to population and habitat
changes, said Jaret Daniels, a researcher
at the University of Florida's McGuire
Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity
who modeled the Florida network in 2003
after similar networks in Illinois and Ohio.
The counts may help scientists prevent
any more butterflies from becoming as
rare as the Miami blue, a quarter-sized
species now found only on one island in
the Florida Keys, Daniels said. The Miami
blue was abundant throughout South
Florida a generation ago, and scientists
were slow to recognize the extent of its
decline.
"Once we have multiple years of data,
we can start looking at trends of these
species, and identify declining species
before they become so rare that they need
to be listed" as endangered species,


.. ; . " .



Adam Stern releases one of the captured
butterflies.
Daniels said.
All the counts follow roughly the same
protocol: Volunteers walk at a steady pace
along a fixed route through a predeter-
mined location, countLig the butterflies
within view. Butterflies can be briefly
caught for identification, but volunteers
can't chase butterflies too far from the des-
ignated path. All individual butterflies
seen during the count, along with the
weather, are noted on a data sheet later
submitted to NABA or one of the state net-
works.
At Miami Metrozoo, a monthly count is
split between the natural pine rockland
and a cultivated butterfly garden in the
children's zoo. Volunteers have been
trained to identify dozens of species
drawn to the wild and manmade habitats.
On a recent morning just after a rainfall,
a handful of tiny butterflies are spotted
from a gravel path through the rockland. A
pale blur no bigger than a quarter is easi-
ly identified mid-air as a common Florida
butterfly, the Cassius blue.
"The low-level flying, the erratic path,
then you can see the tinge of blue," said


volunteer Yvonne Leung, 55, of Miami.
A darker dot fluttering above the gravel
is harder to identify by flight pattern
alone. Adam Stern, the zoo's inverte-
brates expert, traps it in a butterfly net
and gingerly transfers it to a clear plastic
container so the volunteers can compare
its tawny-orange wings with pictures in
their field guides. After a minute, they
conclude it's a Baracoa skipper and
release it; Stern would have pho-
tographed it for identification later if the
group had not been able to name the
minuscule, fast-flying butterfly common
to South Florida lawns.
More butterflies are counted in the
walk through the gardens in the chil-
dren's zoo: Striped zebra longwings,
including one laying eggs, and bright
orange Julias float in the sunbeams
breaking through the clouds.
The diversity of butterflies flying
across the zoo's property has surprised
Stern since he began leading the
Metrozoo counts four years ago, with
some species differentiated only by sub-
tle markings.
"So what you thought was one type of
butterfly, once you stopped to look at it,
actually became four different butter-
flies that you'd been counting as one,"
he said.
About 3,000 people participated in 483
NABA counts across the continent last
year, according to the New Jersey-based
organization. While the participants are
mostly amateurs, they collect informa-
tion individual scientists cannot easily
access, such as large-scale surveys of
migratory species across multiple
states, said Leslie Ries, a postdoctoral
researcher at the University of
Maryland who is analyzing three
decades of NABA counts. She has found
the data matches results independently
compiled by the Illinois and Ohio but-
terfly monitoring networks from about
100 sites across each state.

been postponed from October
to February to give defense
attorneys additional time to
prepare. But Sanchez's attor-
ney, Michael Bruce Cohen,
told The Associated Press the
date could change again.
"We believe we probably
are looking at a trial date in
October of next year," Cohen
said Saturday
Prosecutor Steve Carlton


said he expects U.S. Attorney
R. Alexander Acosta to make
a recommendation to
Attorney General Alberto
Gonzales next week on the
use of the death penalty in the
case. Carlton said he hopes
Gonzales will reach a decision
by Labor Day.
Jose Luis Escobedo, 28; his
wife, Yessica, 25; and their
sons Luis Damian, 3, and Luis


Julian, 4, were found dead
Oct. 13 off a stretch of highway
near Port St. Lucie.
Following a federal indict-
ment charging two men in the
killings, St. Lucie County
Sheriff Ken Mascara said that
Jose Luis Escobedo and his
brother were part of a massive
drug trade operation and the
alleged killers worked for

still has legal jurisdiction of the
child, Mysinger said.
Lake County Detective Jim
Vachon began investigating the
whereabouts of Courtney in
January and notified Portage
Police on Thursday after he
learned that Sisk could be living
there, officials said.
"Basically what it boils down
to is his tenacious investigating,"
Mysinger said. "It panned Out
and the investigation uncovered
not only a missing child from our
county but most likely saved the
lives of the other children."



Car thief


shot after


spree


Man used

ex-girlfriend

as shield
Associated Press
PALATKA - A man shot his
ex-girlfriend, a 10-year-old
boy and a sheriff's deputy
during a three-hour crime
spree Saturday that ended
when he was fatally wounded
by officers, officials said.
Lawrence Michael Floyd,
19, of Palatka, was angered
over a failed relationship
with his ex-girlfriend when
he abducted her around mid-
night and held her hostage as
he fled in a stolen vehicle,
police said.
During the next three
hours, he would hold two chil-
dren hostage and shoot three
people, all of whom were in
stable condition and expect-
ed to recover fully, said Lt.
James Griffith, a spokesman
with the Palatka Police
Department.
"It's not an every day occur-
rence that we have people
kidnapped at gunpoint and
someone behave in this man-
ner," Griffith said.
After abducting the woman
in Palatka, a Putnam County
sheriff's deputy spotted the
suspect several miles to the
south, in the yard of a home,
police said. Floyd allegedly
held his ex-girlfriend as a
shield and fired on the
deputy before driving back to
Palatka in the stolen vehicle,
police said.
The suspect then drove to
an apartment a few blocks
away from where the abduc-
tion began and fired on law
enforcement there, hitting
Putnam County Sheriff's
Deputy David Ussery and; a
10-year-old boy, Griffith said.:
"The officers couldn't
return fire because there
were children present,"'
Griffith said.
The boy was rescued by offi-
cers, transported to Putnam
Community Hospital and then
to Shands Jacksonville
Medical Center, where he wa�
in stable condition, officials
said.
Ussery was struck in his bul-
let proof vest and was not seri-
ously hurt, officials said.
Floyd then returned to the
apartment, barricaded himself
inside and held hostage his
estranged girlfriend and two
small children, 1 and 6 years
old, Griffith said.
Hostage negotiators con-
vinced the suspect to release
the two children, but he
remained barricaded with his
ex-girlfriend in the apartment
for two hours, officials said.
The man exited the apart-
ment at 3 a.m. but held the
female hostage as a shield,
pointing his handgun at her,
Griffith said.
Floyd then fired a shot at his
ex-girlfriend, striking her in
the upper torso, police said.
Officers then returned fire,
fatally shooting Floyd, Griffith
said.
The female victim, who was
not identified, was in stable
condition at Putnam

And even though the

they would be patched into

bewildered when an elec-

Gangler said he could
understand why some people

"The whole thing that's
made the calls a lot more
intrusive is the Do Not Call

comfortable with the idea of

Gangler said. "These calls

elected, police and fire are
going to stay," he said.
"People need to be aware of
that"
Potential savings vs.
local control
Price, elected to office last
November, has pushed hard
for the city to turn fire servic-
es over to the county and to
contract police protection
with the sheriff's office.
His reasoning is simple:
saving money
For example, about one-
third of the volunteer fire
department's budget is set
aside for equipment replace-
ment, such as buying a new
fire truck.
Price believes it makes bet-
ter sense to merge the city fire
department with the county's
fire services, with city resi-
dents paying the special fire-
protection tax that other
county residents pay
That way, he said, the cost
of fire equipment is spread
across the county. Crystal
River, he said, could provide
regional fire coverage as part
of the county's overall system.
Farley said the problem
with that is the county could-
n't guarantee to continue
staffing the fire house in
downtown Crystal River.
Moving the fire department
out of the city would impact
response time and possibly
homeowners' insurance rates,
he said.
The larger debate centers
on police.
Price compared Crystal

Sheriff's Office.
He found that Crystal River
had the highest per capital
rate - $528 per every citizen
in the city. The Inverness per
capital cost, he said, is $152.
Price also insists that
Sheriff Jeff Dawsy said he
could operate police protec-
tion in Crystal River for
$800,000 a year less than what
the city now pays for its own
department.
City Manager Andy Houston
said he finds nothing in the
city files that shows the sher-
iff ever made such an offer.
Dawsy was unavailable for
comment.
Farley said he doubts the
cify would save much money
by contracting for police serv-
ices.
What it would lose, he said,
is local control and accounta-
bility.
"To maintain the same level
of service, I don't see that
Sheriff Dawsy could do that at
a cost less than what we pay
now," he said.
Gudis agrees.
"The bottom line is I don't
think there would be any sav-
ings," he said. "I think we've
spent enough time studying
it."
McNiff said she doesn't
know if she supports keeping
police or contracting it out
because no one has discussed
specific offers.
"I don't know the answer
because the current city coun-
cil has refused to allow the
people in to state their case,"
she said. "You've got to make
decisions based on facts, not
he-said, she-said."
Price said he believes
McNiff's approach is sensi-
ble.
"Maureen has said she'd
like to hear what the sheriff
has to say," Price said. "I think
that's a start."

She was in a parade one day,
as one of the pretty young
women "dolling up" the mili-
tary tanks. Frank was a soldier
walking near the tanks. They
met and fell in love, and then
Frank went overseas.
Because of her job, she was
able to keep track of Frank's
whereabouts - until he disap-
peared. He was in Africa and
contracted black water malar-
ia; the doctors told him it was
incurable.
Frank came home on leave to
surprise Anne. She was so sur-
prised that when she saw him,
she fainted.
After the war ended, the doc-
tors told Frank he had only

failure on the Russian side of
the station. Russian cosmo-
nauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and
Oleg Kotov got four of six
processors on two computers
working again on Friday, and
on Saturday they got the
remaining two on line.
Engineers in Moscow and
Houston had not yet conclu-
sively determined what caused
the failure, although the lead-
ing theory was changes to the
electrical system from the
space station's growth.
The cosmonauts started
turning on systems - such as
an oxygen machine, a water
processor and a carbon dioxide
remover - that had been
turned off while the computers
were down. On Sunday, they
planned to test the station's ori-
entation system, which will be
the final benchmark for decid-
ing whether the computers
work properly and whether the
shuttle needs to stay an extra
day.
"The bottom line is it
appears that the command and
control type computers are
functioning just fine," said
Mike Suffredini, NASAs space
station program manager.

three years to live and his
brothers told Anne to forget
about him.
"But she was stubborn - my
mother was very stubborn all
her life," Marianne said. "She
sought my dad out and insisted
they get married." They mar-
ried in 1947 and Frank lived for
more than 50 years after that.
Frank worked for U.S. Steel
in Gary, Ind., as an industrial
engineer until he took a dis-
ability retirement. Still in his
50s, he was too young to do
nothing, so he went to travel
agent school and then worked
for Costa Cruise Lines in
Chicago. That's when he and
Anne started traveling.
A few years later, the couple
opened their own travel agency
in Wheaton, Ill.
They lived in a two-bedroom
apartment on the 14th floor of a
16-floor building. It had four
balconies and on a clear day,
Anne could see the Chicago

scheduled undocking of the
shuttle, astronauts and cosmo-
nauts spent Saturday moving
supplies and trash between the
shuttle and station after sever-
al days of grueling work
Friday's tasks had included
spacewalks to repair the torn
thermal blanket on Atlantis
and to retract a 115-foot solar
energy wing that will be moved
to a different location on the
space station.
Williams' former crew mate
at the space station, astronaut
Michael Lopez-Alegria, holds
the U.S. record for longest con-


skyline. She loved that apart-
ment.
As travel agents, the Fusillos
defined themselves by making
each trip special for each
client, Marianne said.
"My dad was the researcher;
my mom was the arranger," she
said.
They traveled the world, usu-
ally on familiarization tours,
paid for by tour operators. But
they paid for many trips them-
selves, traveling at least twice a
month.
"They wanted to learn about
everything," Marianne said.
Anne once traveled to
China, and on her tour there
were photographers from
National Geographic maga-
zine there.
She loved wine from
Cinqueterre, Italy, and
Lemoncillo martinis. Her
favorite local restaurant was

tinuous stay in space with 215
days. The longest stay in space
was 437 days by Russian Valeri
Polyakov.
In February, Williams set
another record for the most
time spent spacewalking by a
woman, kicking off a year of
achievements by women in
space.
In October, U.S. astronaut
Peggy Whitson will become the
first woman to command the
space station. Later that
month, Air Force Col. Pam
Melroy will become only the
second woman to command a


the world. She played the
piano by ear, loved movies
about Africa, never tired of
watching "Law and Order," was
a cancer survivor.
She loved dressing up, yet
never paid full price for any-
thing.
"She loved Florida,"
Marianne said. "We would
come and spend summers with
my grandmother (in Winter
Park). She was a housekeeper
for a priest who opened a youth
camp and my mother and
grandmother would cook for
the camp."
The Fusillos moved to
Crystal River in 1997.
Anne Fusillo was a woman of
faith. She loved her church,
Our Lady of Grace Catholic
Church in Beverly Hills. She
sang in the choir and led a
small Christian community
group. She especially loved
"Father George," a priest from
Cameroon who spent several


space shuttle mission; Eileen
Collins was the first, in 1999.
If Whitson and Melroy's time
at the space station overlap, it
could be the first time there
are two female commanders in
space at the same time. "The
first time we have two female
commanders in orbit - that
will be neat," Whitson said.
Almost three decades after
the first women joined the
astronaut corps in 1978, only 17
of the 94 current active astro-
nauts are women.


My dad was the researcher; my
mom was the arranger.

ATV drivers invade forests


Associated Press
MOUNTAINTOWN, Ga. -
There once was a barrier at
the entrance to this corner of
the Mountaintown Roadless
Area, a red-and-white metal
fence that blocked all-terrain
vehicles from accessing the
rugged trail beyond.
It's been down for years
now, and the terrain behind it
has been turned into a play-
ground for ATV riders. A
sharp dip meant to deter driv-
ers is muddy and flattened,
and large stretches of the path
are worn by tire tracks, with a
grassy strip down the middle
that looks a lot like a forest
median.
There's even a faint splotch
of paint on a tree to mark the
entrance to the illegal trails.
"In one section, they were
running the trail so much, hik-
ers were following the ATV
trail rather than the official
trail," said George Owen, who
oversaw the hiking trail's con-
struction in the 1980s. "They
-want to run anywhere they
want."
Renegade ATV trails are
regarded as one of the biggest
threats to pristine wildlife by
foresters, but many struggle
with how to actually put an
end to the abuses.
In Mountaintown, a patch of
forest in northwest Georgia,
the traditional defenses
against ATVs haven't worked.
Tank traps, the bumpy dips
meant to deter drivers, have
been turned to playpens.
Strategically placed branches
or timber has been shorn by
machete-wielding drivers.
Gates and barriers have been
'quickly destroyed. And
rangers complain there's too
few patrolling officers to be
much of a deterrent.
"We've got eight officers -
that's almost a million acres
we're covering," sighed


Associated Press
A sign warns visitors to the Mountaintown Roadless Area near
Mountaintown, Ga., that all-terrain vehicles are not allowed. ATVs
and other off-road vehicles had almost unfettered access to fed-
eral lands until 1972, when President Nixon issued an executive
order that required agency heads to develop regulations.
President Carter expanded it five years later to allow agencies to
ban ATVs and other off-road vehicles on trails if they're damaging
the forests.


Stewart Delugach, the patrol
captain of the sprawling
Chattahoochee-Oconee
National Forest, which
includes Mountaintown.
"There's no way they can be
everywhere at once."
Some environmentalists are
encouraging more drastic
steps.
A report released last


month by Wildlands CPR, a
Montana-based group that
aims to stop off-road vehicle,
abuse, encourages stiffer
patrols, tougher penalties and
electronic monitoring to deter
ATV drivers. It also suggests
encouraging more self-polic-
ing by closing the legal off-
road areas hit by repeat
offenders.


"Everyone has a right to
access our public lands, but
no one has the right to abuse
these lands or ruin the experi-
ence of others enjoying
America's great outdoors,"
said Jason Kiely, one of the
group's leaders.
ATVs and other off-road
vehicles had almost unfet-
tered access to federal lands
until 1972, when President
Nixon issued an executive
order that required agency
heads to develop regulations.
President Carter expanded it
five years later to allow agen-
cies to ban ATVs and other off-
road vehicles on trails if
they're damaging the forests.
Since then, illegal trails
have exploded. Rangers now
say that thousands of miles of
trails now crisscross federal
forestland. Many are disused
logging trails, but in some
cases ATV drivers armed with
axes, machetes and other tools
carve out their own paths.
The U.S. Forest Service has
tried to sate the demand by
setting aside vast tracts of land
for ATV use, but they're often
seeing those areas turned into
a hub for more illegal trails.
The agency now lists this
type of "unmanaged recre-
ation" as one of the greatest
threats to the federal forests.
They say the renegade drivers
disrupt wildlife, expose terrain
to invasive species, and endan-
ger hikers and others who use
the trails legally
"If the general public
decides they're going to ride
their ATVs across the forest,
there's nothing anyone can do
about it," said Mitch Cohen, a
spokesman with the Forest
Service.
"If the people don't see the
damage they're causing and
don't value they're national
resources enough, there's no
amount of law enforcement we
can put out there to stop it."

Mourners attend a memorial service for Ruth Graham, wife of evan-
gelist Billy Graham, Saturday in Montreat, N.C.Ruth Graham died
Thursday at age 87, following a lengthy illness that left her bedrid-
den for months.


Graham's wife 'had a

great reception in heaven'


Associated Press *


MONTREAT, N.C. - Ruth
Graham retained her beauty
even in death and surely "had a
great reception in heaven," an
ailing Billy Graham told a
packed auditorium of mourners
who gathered Saturday to
remember his beloved wife.
"I wish you could look in that
casket because she's so beauti-
ful," said Graham, clinging to his
walker "She was a wonderful
woman."
Ruth Graham died Thursday
at age 87 following a lengthy ill-
ness. Her husband's closest con-
fidant, she was remembered as a
spiritual stalwart and modest
mentor who provided a solid
foundation- both biblically and
geographically - for her globe-
trotting husband.
'The mama that we saw at
home was the mama that the
world saw," said her son,
Franklin, who is now the head of

mother's headstrong and quirky
nature, telling the crowd about
the time she overcame a locked
bedroom door by crawling on
the roof, throwing a cup of cold
water through his window to
wake him.
"I thank you mama for your

for all of it and I'm going to miss

spurred by the sight of his 19
grandchildren.

a pre-and post-fitting ques-
tionnaire, the participants
will earn the free use of this
hearing aid for thirty days. My
audiologists will provide the
exams and lab services at
no charge through the grant.
At the end of this thirty day
trial, participants will return
the aids to one of my clinics
or purchase the aids at a
discounted price.

Fatherly fibs Queen celebrates birthday



Dads'need to know results in well-intended white lies


The Washington Post

WASHINGTON - Doug
Hardy was barely inside the
door of the National Air and
Space Museum when he made
up his first "fact"
On a sunny morning a few
days before Father's Day, Hardy
and his son Andrei were hud-
dled under the Mercury cap-
sule. Like countless dads before
him, he was explaining rocket
science to his boy, in this case
how the mottled heat shield
protected John Glenn from a
fiery death as the craft plunged
through the atmosphere.
Then Andrei, 12, asked:
What are these dark disks
made of?
Again, like countless dads
before him, Hardy answered
confidently - even though he
didn't have a clue.
"Steel," he said.
(The shield is actually made
from a plastic-fiberglass com-
posite, said Michael Neufeld,
chairman of the museum's
space history division. The
disks are plugs left over from
post-flight analysis.)
If it didn't occur to Hardy to
say, "I don't know," he's not
alone. The phenomenon of the
"know-it-all dad" is a familiar
one to the docents, curators
and keepers of America's
museums and zoos.
'Just about every time I'm on
the floor, I hear a father say
something incorrect to his
kids," said Bobbe Dyke, who
has been a docent and tour
guide at Air and Space for 31
years. "You can't butt in and
correct them in front of the
kids. You just have to cringe."
Asked about the exchange a
few minutes later, Hardy, a
Boston-based writer, good-


naturedly admitted his lack of
metallurgical expertise.
Further, he confessed to wing-
ing it factwise more than once
during the museum-filled road
trip with his son.
"Now that I think about it, I
guess I make up stuff all the
time," he said. Only a few days
earlier, at the Vietnam
Veterans Memorial, Andrei
had asked how bronze statues
were made. Hardy finessed an
explanation based on half-
remembered notions of wax
molds and plaster.
"It was a total BS moment,"
Hardy said. "But you've got to
be the guy who has the
answers, right? It's a habit.
What should I say, that I'm 51
years old and I used to know
this 20 years ago? That's not
much of an answer."
Standing in the museum's
entrance hall, Dyke can attach
a bit of overheard blarney to
just about every icon on dis-
play:
* The Spirit of St Louis:
Charles Lindbergh was the
first person to fly across the
Atlantic. (He was the first to do
it solo and nonstop.)
* Friendship 7: John Glenn
flew the little capsule to the
moon. (He was the first
American to orbit the Earth.)
* Sputnik: The Russian
satellite carried a dog into
space. (The sphere - the one
at the museum is a replica of
the one that went into space -
is less than 23 inches in diame-
ter.)
* The Bell X-1: The sound-
barrier-busting aircraft was
built without landing gear to
make it faster. (The wheels are
just retracted.)
"I've heard a lot of fathers
tell a lot of sons that the rotat-_
ing litter chair in the Skylab


Orbital Workshop was the toi-
let," Dyke said. "It has a solid
metal seat."
It isn't just dads, of course.
Mothers are perfectly capable
of dispensing misinformation
in response to their children's
nonstop queries about the
world. But the howlers that get
repeated with glee in museum
break rooms seem to over-
whelmingly feature dads get-
ting it wrong.
"I think dads do it more
because they don't want to
admit it when they don't know
something," said Don Lopez,
the museum's deputy director.
'And they make a lot of mis-
takes."
The gaffes range from minor,
such as Hardy's misapplied
steel, to epic whoppers, such as
the forklift that went to the
moon.
"That's one we talk about a
lot," Lopez said.
Workers had put exhibit
ropes around a forklift on the
floor to keep kids from climb-
ing on it. Sure enough, Lopez
said, a boy was heard asking
whether it was a piece of space
equipment, and his father
answered that it had been to
the moon.
One area where kids often
have an edge on their parents
is wildlife biology, thanks to
endless critter shows on cable
TV and a steady stream of
Internet-researched animal
reports for school.
"I hear kids correcting their
dads all the time on the differ-
ence between insects and spi-
ders or great apes versus mon-
keys" said Alan Peters, curator
of the National Zoo's
Invertebrate House. '"As a par-
ent, you have to keep yourself
in check or you'll get yourself
in trouble."

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II rides Saturday in an open carriage at center, surrounded by members of
the Royal family after taking part in the annual Trooping the Colour ceremony in London.


Associated Press

LONDON - Soldiers in scar-
let tunics and bearskin hats
marched in formation
Saturday - a showcase of
Britain's best pomp and
pageantry - to celebrate the
birthday of Queen Elizabeth II.
The queen actually turned
81 on April 21. But one of the
many perks of wearing the
crown is a second, official
birthday in June, marked with
the annual Trooping the Color
parade.
The British monarch wore a
bright green coat and hat to
inspect the troops gathered in
her honor in central London.
Dignitaries, including former
Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher, outgoing Prime
Minister Tony Blair and
Foreign Secretary Margaret
Beckett also attended the event
The parade is a full-on dis-
play of British pageantry, with
more than 1,100 soldiers in full
regalia marching down the
Mall - the wide, leafy boule-
vard that runs from
Buckingham Palace toward
Trafalgar Square.
The queen inspected the
troops on Horse Guards
Parade, and then the royal
family returned to
Buckingham Palace, gathering
on the building's famous bal-


cony for a flypast of military
aircraft
The queen was joined on the
balcony by many family mem-
bers, including Prince William
- who was in military uniform
- Prince Charles and his wife
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
The event, which began as
traditional military prepara-
tions, is now a huge draw for
tourists, with thousands lining
the parade route to catch a
glimpse of Britain's royals.
Nine people were arrested
but were released without
charge after the ceremony
Police said they were respond-

Fatah gunmen storm
ministry, parliament
RAMALLAH, West Bank -
Hundreds of Fatah gunmen on
Saturday stormed Hamas-con-
trolled institutions in the West
Bank, including parliament and
government ministries, and told
staffers that those with ties to
Hamas will not be allowed to
return.
At the parliament, the Fatah sup-
porters chanted, "Hamas Out,"
climbed on the roof of the building
and fired in the air. They planted
Fatah and Palestinian flags on the
building, and also tried to seize the
deputy speaker but were stopped
by employees.
. Many government employees
tied to Hamas had not showed up
for work on Saturday, the start of
the work week in the West Bank,
after Hamas took control of Gaza
in a military campaign. Apparently,
the staffers feared reprisals.
At the parliament building, Fatah
gunmen entered the office of
Deputy Speaker Hassan Kreisheh
and tried to grab him, but Fatah
employees stopped them. Other
Fatah activists took over the
Education Ministry and the prime
minister's office.
In the West Bank city of Nablus,
Fatah gunmen took over the
Hamas-controlled city council and
planted the Fatah flag on the top of
the building. Fatah supporters also
kidnapped seven Hamas support-
ers, and deposed a senior member
of the Religious Affairs Ministry.
Bomber attacks U.S.
convoy; four dead
KABUL, Afghanistan -A sui-
cide car bomber attacked a convoy
of U.S. contract workers and mili-


tary personnel in Afghanistan's
capital city of Kabul on Saturday,
killing at least four civilians, officials
said. A soldier opened fire on the
crowd after the attack, killing one
civilian.
The suicide attack in western
Kabul also wounded four civilians
and a foreigner, said Gen. Ali Shah
Paktiawal. He said an international
military vehicle and seven civilian
vehicles were damaged in the
attack. The bomber also died.
Zabiullah Mujahid, who claims to
speak for the Taliban, claimed the
group's responsibility for the blast.
Data on 64,000 Ohio
workers stolen
COLUMBUS, Ohio - A 22-year-
old intern was given the responsi-
bility of safeguarding the personal
information of thousands of state
employees, a security procedure
that ended up backfiring.
The names and Social Security
numbers of all 64,000 Ohio state
employees were stolen last week-
end from a state agency intern
who left a backup data storage
device in his car, Gov. Ted
Strickland said Friday.
An additional review of data
revealed that the storage device
also may have held information
about participants in the state's
pharmacy benefits management
program and the names and Social
Security numbers of their depend-
ents. Strickland has asked Ohio
Inspector General Tom Charles to
investigate.
What officials don't know is
whether the thief is an unsuspect-
ing common car burglar or a com-
puter-literate opportunist with the
capability of unlocking the code
encrypting thousands of Social
Security numbers.

Father-son distiller teams part


of tradition in bourbon country


Associated Press


BARDSTOWN, Ky. - The
small group of men responsible
for making Kentucky bourbons
think of themselves as a frater-
nity, where friendships seem as
enduring as whiskey recipes. At
some distilleries, those bonds
are even tighter - connecting
fathers and sons.
At Heaven Hill Distilleries,
Craig Beam traces some of his
earliest memories to his care-
free days tagging along as his
father carried on the family tra-
dition.
His father, Parker Beam, had
the same boyhood indoctrina-
tion - learning at his dad's side.
Now, Parker and Craig Beam
share duties as co-master dis-
tillers at Bardstown-based
Heaven Hill, an independent
producer of distilled spirits
owned by the Shapira family.
The company's bourbon brands
include Evan Williams and
Elijah Craig.
In the heart of Kentucky,
where making whiskey has been
a way of life even before state-
hood, the craft has been passed
down from one generation to
the next. The Beam family
traces its Kentucky whiskey her-
itage to 1795, when family patri-
arch Jacob Beam set up a still.
"If you were a Beam, you sort
of were destined to follow in the
footsteps of either your father,
grandfathers, cousins or
uncles," said Parker Beam, a
grandnephew of Jim Beam.
There are other enduring
bloodlines among some distill-
eries churning out the smooth,
amber-hued whiskey in
Kentucky bourbon country.
While the bourbons are con-
trolled by large liquor compa-
nies, making the product
remains a quaint family tradi-
tion at some distilleries.
At the Pernod Ricard-owned
Wild. Turkey distillery at
Lawrenceburg, longtime master
distiller Jimmy Russell has
been grooming his son Eddie in

the ways of the craft.
Eddie Russell, 47, spent boy-
hood days playing in the distill-
ery and the cavernous ware-
houses where bourbon ages in
oak barrels. "Everything was
just so big," he recalled. "For a
little kid, it seemed like the
whole world was there.
As he reached adulthood, he
soon realized he wanted to fol-
low in his father's footsteps.
"It has to be something in your
blood or in your genes," he said.
"I came here for a summer job
and within two weeks I realized
this is where I wanted to spend
my career"
Now, in those same warehous-
es where he played as a boy,

2006 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

City of Inverness

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you
about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a
safe and dependable supply of drinking water.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers lakes, streams, ponds,
reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves
naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting
from the presence of animals or from human activity. We want you to understand the efforts we make to
continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to
ensuring the quality of your water.
Our water source is obtained from the Floridan Aquifer and is aerated, chlorinated for disinfection purposes
and a polyphosphate is fed for iron and corrosion control, then fluoride is added for dental health.
In 2004, The Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system.
The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the
vicinity of our wells. There is one potential source of contamination identified for this system with a moderate
susceptibility level from a petroleum storage tank. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source
WaterAssessment and Protection Program website at www.deo.state.fl.us/swapo or they can be obtained from
Russell Kreager, Director of Public Works for the City of Inverness, 820 Pleasant Grove Road, Inverness,
Florida, 34452.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact at (352) 726-2321.
For billing inquiries, please contact the Finance Department at (352) 726-5016. We encourage our valued
customers to be informed about their water utility or by calling the Public Works Department at 352-726-2321.
This report shows our water quality results and what they mean.
The City of Inverness routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State
laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our
monitoring for the period of January I to December 31, 2006. Data obtained before January 1, 2006, and
presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and
regulations.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these
terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking
water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment
technology.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other
requirements that a water system must follow.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water.
There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant'is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which
there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to
control microbial contaminants.
Non Applicable - (N/A): Does not apply.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance nas not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I) - one part by 3i eight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight
of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg 1) - one pan y. we gfIt of analyte to I bdlgin parts by is eight
of the water sample.
Parts per trillion (ppt) or Nanograms per liter (nanograms/1) - one part by weight of analyte to 1 trillion parts by
weight of the water sample.

New Technology Improves Hearing in Noise
The Acoustic Signature, available in Audibel's Virtue hearing instruments. is a sophisticated, technology-driven system
that detects and classifies listening situations and switches seamlessly between them, providing a totally natural hearing
experience and clearer, better sound quality than ever before.


The Virtue 12 offers four unique Signatures designed to Improve
your comfort in a variety of situations. The first Signature, "Quiet;
makes sure that when your surroundings are quiet, such as
when you're relaxing at home with a good book, soft noises like
a refrigerator or computer fan, are kept at a low level so as not to
disturb your quiet time. The 'Mechanical' signature helps to control
the loudness of steady mechanical or machinery-like sounds such as
vacuum cleaners, which can at times be overpowering. And for those
who spend a lot of time outdoors, Virtue has an Acoustic Signature
designed specifically for wind noise.This setting helps to control the
intense sound of wind often experienced on golf courses or other
outdoor activities. The fourth Virtue Acoustic Signature, "Other
Sounds' is active when speech and noise are together. It compares
the level of the speech to the level of the noise, then acts to preserve
speech as much as possible while minimizing background noise.

RAMALLAH, West Bank -
The U.S. strengthened its offer of

Abbas on Saturday, telling him
an international aid embargo

government without Hamas,
aides to Abbas said.
The United States and

Abbas in light of the upheaval
that has remade the Palestinian

expects Washington to lift the

"I expect that we are going to

Duke prosecutor loses license


Associated Press

RALEIGH, N.C. - District Attorney
Mike Nifong was disbarred Saturday
for his "selfish" rape prosecution of
three Duke University lacrosse players
- a politically motivated act, his judges
said, that he inexplicably allowed to
fester for months after it was clear the
defendants were innocent.
"This matter has been a fiasco.
There's no doubt about it," said F Lane
Williamson, the chairman of the three-
member disciplinary committee that
stripped the veteran prosecutor of his
state law license.
Even Nifong and his attorneys sup-
ported the decision, though the veteran


prosecutor refused to admit to the end
that no crime occurred at a March 2006
lacrosse team party.
The committee said Nifong manipu-
lated the investigation to boost his
chances of winning his first election for
Durham County district attorney. In
doing so, he committed "a clear case of
intentional prosecutorial misconduct"
that involved "dishonesty, fraud, deceit
and misrepresentation."
Williamson specifically cited
Nifong's comments in the early days of
the case, which included a proclama-
tion that he wouldn't allow Durham to
become known for "a bunch of lacrosse
players from Duke raping a black girl."
Appointed district attorney in 2005,


Nifong was in a tight race when a stripper
told police she was raped at the party.
One of the most serious ethics viola-
tions Nifong was found to have commit-
ted involved his failure to turn over
DNA test results that identified genetic
material from several men - but no
members of the lacrosse team - in the
accuser's underwear and body.
The committee found Nifong broke
the state's rules of professional conduct
more than two dozen times.
The players' defense attorneys have
pledged to seek criminal contempt
charges next week
Nifong declined to comment
Saturday while quietly slipping out of
the courthouse through a side door.


Baghdad '40 percent controlled'


Associated Press
People carry an image of radical anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr on Saturday during the funeral of 13 members of an Iraqi
tae kwon do team kidnapped last year in Anbar province in the Shiite enclave of Sadr City in Baghdad, Iraq. Members of the
Anbar Salvation Council, a group of Sunni tribal leaders who have partnered with U.S. and Iraqi officials to fight al-Qaida influ-
ence in Anbar, found the 13 bodies Friday west of Ramadi, near the main highway leading to Jordan, police said.


Associated Press

BAGHDAD - Security
forces in Baghdad have full
control in only 40 percent of
the city five months into the
pacification campaign, a top
American general .said
Saturday as U.S. troops began
an offensive against two al-
Qaida strongholds on the cap-
ital's southern outskirts.
The military, meanwhile,
reported that paratroopers
had found the ID cards of two
missing U.S. soldiers at an al-
Qaida safe house 100 miles
north of where they were
captured last month, but
there was no sign of the men.
The house contained com-
puters, video equipment and
weapons.
Lt. Gen. Raymond Odierno
said American troops
launched the offensive in
Baghdad's Arab Jabour and
Salman Pac neighborhoods
Friday night. It was the first
time in three years that U.S.
soldiers entered those areas,
where al-Qaida militants
build car bombs and launch
Katyusha rockets at
American bases and Shiite


Muslim neighborhoods.
Odierno said there was a
long way to go in retaking the
city from Shiite Muslim mili-
tias, Sunni Arab insurgents
and al-Qaida terrorists. He'
said only about "40 percent is
really very safe on a routine
basis" - with about 30 per-
cent lacking control and a
further 30 percent suffering
"a high level of violence."
"Those are the areas that
we consider to be the hot
spots, which usually have a
Sunni-Shiite fault line, and
also areas where al-Qaida has
decided to make a stand,"
Odierno said.
With Baghdad and Basra
under curfew, violent deaths
were down dramatically
Saturday. Only three people
were reported to have been
killed or found dead in sec-
tarian violence.
That did not include the
discovery of 13 bodies of a tae
kwon do team kidnapped last
year in western Iraq while
driving to a training camp in
neighboring Jordan. The bod-
ies were found 65 miles west
of Ramadi, police and hospi-
tal officials said.

hoods of Baghdad where al-Qaida

TSA looks


to Web to


diffuse


bad press

Associated Press

ARLINGTON, Va. - The
Transportation Security Admi-
nistration is denying allega-
tions an airport screener seized
a toddler's sippy cup and mis-
treated his mother, taking the
unusual step of posting security
camera footage on its Web site.
At issue is whether Monica
Emmerson, a former Secret
Service officer, was improper-
ly detained June 11 after she
spilled water out of her child's
sippy cup at Washington's
Reagan National Airport.
"I was distraught I opened
my son's sippy cup. I twisted
off the top. I wanted to drink
the water. It spilled out,"
Emmerson said Saturday.
Emmerson said an officer
threatened to arrest her after
the water spilled, telling her
she was "endangering the pub-
lic." She said there was no
place to dump the water near
the security area, and that she
was worried when her son start-
ed wandering away from her.
The story quickly spread on
the Internet this week after
blogger Bill Adler, a
Washington author, saw a note
Emmerson wrote on a Web site
for city parents. Adler inter-
viewed Emmerson and
relayed her account
Emmerson said she acciden-
tally spilled the water because
she was nervous and traveling
alone with a toddler.
TSA, however, said
Emmerson dumped, not
spilled, the water on the floor.
A TSA report said
Emmerson told an officer that
she was a Secret Service
agent, flashed her credentials
and said she was exempt from
the "stupid" policy restricting
liquids on planes.
But Emmerson denied that
she flashed her badge, saying
the video shows her digging in
her luggage for identification.
The video that TSA posted
on its Website Friday shows
Emmerson being escorted
from the security checkpoint
as she appears to take the top
off the sippy cup and shake it
upside down.
It shows that after she was
confronted by several officers,
she used paper towels fetched
by the TSA to clean up the spot
as other passengers stream by.

New mood, new votes from new citizens


The Washington Post

MIAMI BEACH - As a Cuban who
fled Fidel Castro's communist rule for a
new life in the United States, Julio
Izquierdo would seem a natural
Republican voter - a sure bet to adopt
the same political lineage that has long
guided most of his countrymen who
resettled in south Florida.
But moments after taking his oath
this week to become a U.S. citizen
and registering to vote, the
grocery store employee said he felt
no such allegiance.
"I don't know whether (President)
Bush is a Democrat or a Republican,
but whatever he is, I'm voting the other


way," Izquierdo, 20, said Thursday as he
waited for a taxi after a mass natural-
ization ceremony at the Miami Beach
Convention Center.
Izquierdo said he did not like Bush's
handling of the Iraq war and was miffed
at politicians, most of them Republican,
who seem to dislike immigrants.
That sentiment, expressed by several
of the 6,000 new citizens who took their
oaths Thursday in group ceremonies
that take place regularly in immigrant-
heavy cities nationwide, underscored
the troubled environment facing the
GOP in the buildup to next year's pres-
idential election.
Surveys show that among Hispanic
voters - a bloc Bush had hoped to woo


into the Republican camp - negative
views about the party are growing amid
a bitter debate over immigration policy.
Republicans in Congress have led the
fight against a controversial Senate bill
that would provide a pathway for mil-
lions of illegal immigrants to eventually
become citizens. All but one of the
GOP's leading White House hopefuls
oppose the measure.
Many Hispanic leaders, including
Republicans, have said the tone of
some critics in attacking the bill has
been culturally insensitive. They say
that has alienated some Hispanics from
the GOP
How this eventually plays out at the
voting booth remains hard to predict,


and that is especially the case concern-
ing newly naturalized Hispanics. Even
if they register to vote, it is uncertain
how many of these new citizens would
actually turn out on election day.
And although 2006 election results
showed a steep drop off in Hispanic
support for Republicans, polls suggest
that there is little, if any, growing enthu-
siasm for Democrats.
Though naturalized citizens are a
small fraction of the Hispanic vote, they
have been a focus of voter registration
efforts by various groups since last
year's mass demonstrations in U.S.
cities protesting legislation pushed by
House Republicans that would have
made illegal immigration a felony.

Your Birthday: There is a good chance you could
find yourself involved on the sidelines just for the fun of
it. With time, however, it could become a major source
of earnings for you.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) - If you're putting
together something you'd like to sell, think in broader
terms of the market, instead of limited sales.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) - Focus your attention
on your personal interests, because it looks like you
could clear up things you haven't had time to get to
without a bunch of disruptions from others.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -Along with your sharp log-
ical attributes, your intuitive powers will be quite strong.
By combining the two, your abilities to make excellent
critical judgment calls will be quite good.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - The day will prove to be
more enjoyable if you spend a portion of your time with
some friends or family with whom you have strong
emotional bonds and whose interests parallel yours.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Let those with whom you
have dealings know that your virtues are unassailable,
especially if they are trying to cut corners that involve
you in ways you totally disapprove of.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - One of your greatest
assets is your ability to keep everything in proper per-

spective. By following your natural instincts, you're not
likely to take yourself or others too seriously.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Although you
might feel obligated to help someone resolve a prob-
lem, you will do so without expecting anything back in
return. This person will still find a way to reciprocate.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - There is nothing
wrong with your reasoning powers, but your mate's
could be even superior. When making an important
decision, include him or her in the analysis of it.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - It may be vital for you
to find some kind of practical outlet in which to engage,
or you could end up feeling out of sorts the entire day.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) - By simply reorganiz-
ing something that's been disturbing you, you should
be able to take all the invisible kinks out of it.
Aries (March 21-April 19) - This is an excellent
day to clear up many unfinished jobs or chores around
the house you may have left hanging. Get the whole
family involved in working together on a project.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) - Your mental faculties,
including your imagination, could be much keener at
this time, so this is an excellent day to apply them
toward constructively laying out some plans for the
future.

Associated Press
Two models play in fake snow descending from the ceiling in Qua's Arctic Ice Room at the Caesars
Palace hotel-casino in Las Vegas. Some people come to Las Vegas to enjoy the clear skies and warm
days, but at a new spa that opened at Caesars Palace, there is a treatment room where it snows all
year long.


"People want to be adventur-
ous," said Sandy Zanella,
spokeswoman for MGM Mirage
Inc., whose Spa Bellagio offers
the only "watsu" treatment on.
the Strip. "They want something
new and different and do some-
thing they can't get at home."
Qua's ice room, the only one of
its kind in the United States,
comes from the millennia-old
European bathing tradition of
using snow to cleanse the body,
said Don Genders, a partner of
Eurospa Technologies LLC, the
room's creator. Ice is available in
the room for those who want to
rub it on steaming skin.
"They built these wooden cab-
ins, heated them up with logs
and rocks and would sit in them
to sweat to actually cleanse their
skin," Genders said.
"The whole idea was that
you'd get too hot sitting in the lit-
tle cabin and you'd use the snow
on the ground to wipe your body.
That process of wiping the dirty
sweat off your body with snow
gets you cold again. So you go
back in."
Cold rooms in Europe dip well
below freezing, touting benefits
to the immune and circulatory
systems.
The Grand Hotel Bellevue &
Spa's Ice Grotto in Gstaad, Swit-
zerland, is a frigid 10 degrees.
The Schwaben Quellen spa and
waterpark in Stuttgart, Germany,
keeps a snow room at 2 degrees.

Dr Reinhard Fricke, a retired
professor at the University of
Muenster in Germany, said his
studies showed that people who
suffer from rheumatoid arthritis
got temporary relief when they
were put in chambers as cold as
minus 166 degrees for about
three minutes because the cold
temperature stunted the activity
of tissue-destroying enzymes
and cells.
Fricke said all one can hope
for in a room at 55 degrees is a
physical wake-up call as blood
from the skin rushes back to the
inner organs and the brain.
"It is not a treatment of a dis-
ease, but a treatment of a sleepy
body," he said. "It's just trying to
activate, stimulate some peo-
ple."
It's not so much the tempera-
ture that revives the body, but
the contrast of going from hot to
cold, Qua director Jennifer Lynn
said.
After baking in the 200-degree
dry sauna, and cooking in a 112-
degree steam room, the 55-
degree ice room will feel plenty
cold, she said.
"So 55 degrees may not sound
as cold as 32 degrees sounds.
However, that contrast is what
provides that physical relaxing
benefit," she said. It also allows
overheated patrons a chance to


dip back in. "Frequently, I have
guests that'll tell me, 'I went
through that full circuit three
times!"'
And the snow? Like so much
of Las Vegas, it's fake.
It's made from 98 percent
water and 2 percent chemical
solution that is harmless. The
concoction, similar to that used
in movie sets, isn't at all cold. It
dissolves within a couple min-
utes after being churned out by a
machine manufactured by an
Anderson, Ala.-based company
called SnowMasters.
Like other fads in Las Vegas,
success stories are often repeat-
ed.
Genders says his company
already is building two more ice
rooms, which will operate at
about 45 degrees, and two snow
rooms - this time with real
snow - which will be run at 32
degrees, at another, as yet unan-
nounced, location on the Strip.
Chris McQuade, a 24-year-old
researcher from Clearwater,
Fla., said the. not-so-cold cold
room at Qua was "refreshing, but
it wasn't invigorating" He also
partook of an herbal steam,
drank green tea, read newspa-
pers and watched ESPN.
'The (fake) snow was kitschy,"
he said. "But overall, it was a lot
of fun."

Hilton child-rearing guide


H ire the Right Nanny: A lot of peo' 'e
think a nanny should be trains d in clh.d
care, child psychology, nursing and
nutrition. But we found that the prettiest blonde
with the biggest chest works just as well, even if'
she can't speak English. It keeps Dad happy
And when he's happy, everybody's happy
Tough Love: Children are always testing you.
Give them an inch and they'll take a mile. That's
why it's so important to put your foot down. But
you have to be creative; you have to make the
punishment fit the crime. Once, I told Paris that
I'd fire her maid if she wouldn't let her in to clean
her room. And I did, too. Paris cried for almost
five minutes, but she learned a big les-
son - don't become too attached to the
help.
Names: Give your children a
unique name, something that is theirs
alone. Like naming them after the city
they were conceived in. There's noth-
ing quite like the look on an 11-year-
old's face when she figures out how
she got her name. I can't tell you the .
emotions that will run through you --
the first time you hear your child say, J
"Ewww, that's so gross! What if my
friends find out?" Priceless. MUw
Set Limits: We suggest 3 or 4 million
a year. If you give children more than that,
they'll think money grows on trees, when we all
know it really comes from Granddaddy
. Respect Your Children's Privacy: Don't go
snooping around You Tube trying to find sex
videos starring your children. Those videos are
extremely private and meant only for their
friends and hundreds of millions of people
around the world, the Russian mafia and lonely
men on oil-drilling platforms in the North Sea.
Emphasize the Value of an Education:
Explain to children that if they don't learn math,
they'll never figure out how much to tip. If they
don't study geography, they'll never know the dif-
ference between a vacation in Capri and one in
'Majorca. If they don't study history, they won't
-know how Columbus discovered Plymouth Rock.
Communication: Communication between


I
L


parents and children is crucial. Many problems
are caused by simple misunderstandings.
Whenever we're going to be globetrotting for
more than a couple of months, we almost always
leave the kids a note on the fridge door. "See you
next March," or something like that, so they'll
know how much we miss them.
Set Boundaries: Your rules may be different,
but we always make sure that the Middle East
and North Korea are "off limits" for our chil-
dren, unless they're with someone we know or
someone really famous.
Know Their Friends: Are your children hang-
ing around with the wrong crowd, picking up
bad habits? All too often we run into
parents who don't realize that a
child's friends have more influence
on them than their parents. All our
: children's friends have been to the
best drug and alcohol rehab centers
in the country. They are top-notch. It
just makes common sense; they're
,.N our children, we owe them the very
best
SPick Your Battles: Does every con-
M versation with your child turn into a
fight? Why not do what we do? Go
LEN shopping - Milan or Tokyo. There's
nothing like a spending spree to
cheer everyone up. Or go to a spa together for a
week or two. Take a break from all of life's little
ups and downs.
Discipline: Sometimes, you have to lay down
the law. Which is why we have a lawyer on
retainer just for that reason. We call him when-
ever the children misbehave and he gives them
a good talking to. Then we send them to the
house in Cabo to let them think about what

Raising happy, well-adjusted children isn't
easy; you'll have some sleepless nights, but in
the end, remember, if you do it right, it's you
they'll call first for bail.

A father is a thing that growls when it feels
good - and laughs very loud when it's scared
half to death.
A father never feels entirely worthy of the
worship in a child's eyes. He's never quite the
hero his daughter thinks, never quite the man
his son believes him to be - and this worries
him, sometimes.-
So he works too hard to try and smooth the
rough places in the road for those of his own

Dear Father, We know divorce can create dif-
ficulty in the relationships with the children,
especially if there is no joint custody and one
parent sees the children much less often than
the other. Too often, divorced parents cannot
separate their anger and bitterness from the
child's best interests, and actively foster an
estrangement that only harms the child. The
important thing to remember is not to give up on
your children because the ex makes contact dif-
ficult. They need to know you will keep making
the effort to see them, because to those chil-
dren, it means you love them, and they will not
forget it.

County resident signs


Willis to playfor

D-IAlabama State
ALAN FESTO
afesto@chronicleonline.com
: Chronicle
!:'Long time Citrus County resident
'Robert Willis tou nd out dreams really can
come true.
Willis recently attained one of his life-
long goals by signing a National Letter of
Intent to play Division I baseball for the
Alabama State University Hornets.
"It was something I've been wanting
for a long time," Willis said of signing a
D-I scholarship.
Willis has spent the past three years


commuting from Lecanto to Trinity
Catholic High School in Ocala where he
has been an outstanding catcher for the
Celtics. Willis made the move after his
freshman year at Lecanto High School,
after deciding he wasn't being provided
everything he needed to be successful.
"It was one of the greatest moves I
could have ever made going there
(Trinity Catholic)," he said.
Willis batted .311 with 19 hits and 10
RBIs during his senior campaign, and his
play behind the plate caught the atten-
tion of several schools before Alabama
State's offer came out of nowhere.
'After the hospitality they showed me
and my family from the coaching staff
and team players at Alabama State, I felt
right at home and that helped me make
my decision," Willis said. The attention


given to his family was an extremely
strong selling point
"They want to talk to my parents
more than me," he said.
Before Willis made the visit to
Montgomery he called and asked if he
needed to bring his gear for a work
out but coach Larry Watkins and
his staff had all they needed;
scouting reports from the
Detroit Tigers and the San
Francisco Giants.
"It felt pretty cool to know ,
you have Major League teams
looking at you," Willis said.
It's safe to say Willis has come
a long way since his days in the
Central Citrus Little League.
Willis will get the unique
opportunity to make a con-


Scholarship

tribution to the Hornets as a freshman.
The Alabama State coaching staff assured Willis
that he will see a minimum of 30 games behind the
plate during the upcoming season and will also
make appearances as a designated hitter.
"I think I'll be a great addition to the their line-,
up," he said.
Trinity Catholic coach and former University of
Florida pitcher Tommy Bond believes Willis'
biggest adjustment will have to come on offense.
"'The pitching is just that much better," Bond:
said. "Defensively, Robert won't have to;
adjust too much."
- illis will try to help improve a,
Robert Will *. Hornets' team that finished 14-24 in
2007. He will also attempt to sure up
, a defense that allowed its' oppo-
nents to steal 88-of-111 (76 per-
cent) bases and gave up over
. eight runs per game.

OAKMONT, Pa. - Aaron
Baddeley teetered on the edge of a
collapse, staring at bogeys on the
golf course and Tiger Woods" name
high on the leaderboard.
He showed he might be up to the
challenge.
Baddeley escaped with an amaz-
ing par from deep rough at the base
of a bunker on the 17th hole. fin-
ished strong with a birdie for an
even-par 70 and wound up with a
two-shot lead over Woods after

Woods was nearly perfect fro

regulation until he had to lay up
from the rough on the 18th hole and
took his only bogey for a 69. one of
only two rounds under par even
though Oakmont's fearsome greens
showed a softer side.
Woods, who has never won a
major when trailing going into the
final round, will be playing in the
last group at a major for the second
time this year. He was one shot
behind at the Masters and tied for
second.
"I've been there before, and I
know what it takes," Woods said.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Landon
Donovan had another big goal. Now
it's time for the U.S. soccer team to
work on its defense.
The Americans beat Panama 2-1 on
Saturday to advance to the CONCA-
CAF Gold Cup semifi-
nals despite some
sloppy defense late in
the game that led to a
goal in the 84th
minute.
"They scored and
made the last two min- ,
utes crazy," U.S. coach
Bob Bradley said. * Landon

certainly will talk Scored on a

Those discussions the 60th minute
will take place before
Thursday night's semifinal at Soldier
Field in Chicago against Canada,
which was impressive in beating
Guatemala 3-0 in Saturday's first
quarterfinal at Gillette Stadium.
"I thought they were very organized
today," Bradley said.
In Sunday's quarterfinals at
Houston, Honduras plays
Guadeloupe and Mexico meets Costa
Rica.
Donovan scored on a penalty kick
in the 60th minute and Carlos
Bocanegra connected in the 62nd.
With 32 goals, Donovan moved within
two of Eric Wynalda's U.S. career
record. It was the 10th Gold Cup goal
for Donovan, who moved ahead of
Wynalda into second place in the
tournament's history, two behind,
Mexico's Luis Roberto Alves.
"I don't want to downplay it
because, obviously, it's cool,"
Donovan said, "but in the context of
what's going on with the team, it pales
in comparison."
Donovan also scored on a penalty
kick in injury time in last Tuesday's 4-
0 win over El Salvador in group play.

Let's go to the videotape: Wimbledon adds replay


Associated Press
LONDON - Host since 1877 to one
of the most tradition-laden of sporting
events, from the grass courts to the all-
white attire, the All England Lawn
Tennis Club has been doing its best
lately to keep up with the changing
times.
Obligatory curtsies are gone, a
retractable roof is on its way, and men
and women will earn equal prize
money this year. Another update real-
ly could affect the outcome of match-
es: Yes, it's true, instant replay is com-
ing to Wimbledon, video screens and
all.
When action begins June 25 at the
Grand Slam tournament, Centre
Court and Court 1 will be equipped
with technology for the "Hawk-Eye"
challenge system, allowing for elec-
tronic reviews of close calls.
It could make official-baiting,
McEnroe-esque cries of "You can't be
serious!" a thing of the past To some,
such as 2003 U.S. Open champion and
two-time Wimbledon runner-up Andy
Roddick, that's quite all right.
"Everybody's kind of making a big
deal over Wimbledon. Well, I hate to


Associated Press
Technicians prepare the tennis court for calibration of 'Hawk-Eye' video line call
system on Number One Court at Wimbledon All England Tennis Club on Friday in
London. When action begins on June 25 at the Grand Slam tournament, Centre
*Court and Number One Court will be equipped with technology for the Hawk-Eye
challenge system, allowing for electronic views of close calls.


tell you: Wimbledon's getting a roof,
Wimbledon's getting 'Hawk-Eye,"'
Roddick said. "The tradition's always
going to be there, with the whites and
with kind of the old school feel
around and stuff, but at the same


time, if you feel you can improve your
event, I think you have to do it"
The "Hawk-Eye" system made its
Grand Slam debut at the U.S. Open
last year, and the Australian Open fol-
lowed suit in January. It's not likely to


be tried at the other major, the French
Open, because balls leave marks in
the red clay that can be checked.
When a player questions a call,
screens show a graphic rendering of
the ball's flight, in slow motion, with a
black spot indicating where the ball
landed. That spot either touches a
white line (the ball was in) or it does-
n't (the ball was out).
At the U.S. Open and Australian
Open, players were allowed two
incorrect challenges per set- if a call
is overturned, the player keeps that
challenge - plus an extra one if a
there's a tiebreaker. At Wimbledon,
players will be given three per set,
plus an extra one for a tiebreaker; in
a fifth set for men or a third set for
women, where there is no tiebreaker,
the number of challenges will be reset
if the game score reaches 6-6.
Part of the reason for the extra chal-
lenge at Wimbledon is that on the two
courts that will have "Hawk-Eye,"
they're removing the Cyclops system
that monitored the service lines and
let out a "Beep!" on faults.
It might be odd not to hear those
beeps. Even odder: Seeing replays on
16'/2-by-10-foot screens at Wimbledon,


where some courts still use hand-
operated scoreboards.
"We're all very keen on keeping tra-
dition," All England Club Chief
Executive Ian Ritchie said, "but we've
always got to look to move forward."
That's part of a recent pattern at
Wimbledon, where modernity has
managed to creep in more and more
during this millennium.
In 2003, it was decided players no
longer would need to bow or curtsy to
the Royal Box behind one of the
Centre Court baselines. Instead, play-
ers only are required to pay homage if
Queen Elizabeth II or Prince Charles
is present - and neither has stopped
by to watch tennis at Wimbledon since
the 1970s.
Also, construction has started on a
roof for Centre Court, expected to be
fully operational in 2009. That will
consign to history, at least on
Wimbledon's most hallowed court,
one of the tournament's grandest tra-
ditions: rain delays.
And then there's the prize money.

February it would give men and

for-4. It was the llth time a
Marlins batter had gone 5-for-5.
In 27 games against Kansas
City for Seattle, the Chicago
White Sox and the Marlins,
he's hitting .416 (37-for-89) with
22 RBIs. His teams are 20-7
against the Royals.
Brewers 5, Twins 2
MINNEAPOLIS - Dave Bush
stopped a personal six-start win-
less streak, pitching the Milwaukee
Brewers past the Minnesota Twins
5-2 on Saturday night.
Bush (4-6) baffled the Twins with
his slow curveballs into the seventh
inning, Bill Hall hit an RBI double,
and Corey Hart broke the game
open with a two-run single. The
bullpen preserved the Brewers'
fourth straight victory since Justin
Verlander threw his no-hitter
against them for the Detroit Tigers.
That delighted the delegation of

Phillies 6, Tigers 3
PHILADELPHIA-- Soft-tossing
Jamie Moyer outpitched a prospect
half his age and Aaron Rowand
homered and singled in the go-
ahead run to lead the Philadelphia
Phillies over the Detroit Tigers 6-3
on Saturday night.
Shane Victorino had three hits,
including a solo homer, for the
Phillies, who closed within two
games of the NL East-leading New
York Mets. They were 81� games
behind just two weeks ago.
Carlos Guillen and Curtis
Granderson homered for the
Tigers. Placido Polanco hit an RBI
double off Antonio Alfonseca in the
ninth and Detroit put two runners
on before Alfonseca struck out


Guillen and Ivan Rodriguez
grounded out to end the game.
Diamondbacks 8, Orioles 4
BALTIMORE - Scott Hairston
hit the first of Arizona's three home
runs off Daniel Cabrera, and the
Diamondbacks dealt the Baltimore
Orioles their seventh straight loss,
8-4 on Saturday night.
Chris Young and Chad Tracy
also connected for the
Diamondbacks, who built a 5-0
lead in the third inning. Hairston
nearly hit another homer in the
sixth, but Orioles center fielder
Corey Patterson leaped and
reached over the 7-foot wall to
snare the ball..
Astros 9, Mariners 4
HOUSTON - Craig Biggio hit a
three-run homer to back Woody
Williams' strong outing and the


Houston Astros beat the Seattle
Mariners 9-4 on Saturday night.
It was the fourth straight loss for
the Mariners after a season-high
five-game win streak.
Williams (3-9) went 6 2-3
innings and allowed four runs and
eight hits, striking out four and
walking none. Williams retired 12
of the first 14 batters he faced.
Reds 8, Rangers 4
CINCINNATI - Ken Griffey Jr.
homered twice Saturday night,
snatching the spotlight from
Sammy Sosa's quest for No. 600
and leading the Cincinnati Reds to
an 8-4 victory over the Texas
Rangers.
Slumping David Ross also
homered twice for Cincinnati,
which scored all its runs off five
homers.
Sosa came into the game one
homer shy of becoming the fifth
player to reach 600. His grand
slam on Friday night led the
Rangers to a 9-7 win in the inter-
league series opener.
White Sox 6, Pirates 1
PITTSBURGH - Mark Buehrle
scattered nine hits over eight
innings, Josh Fields hit a two-run
homer and the Chicago White Sox
beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-1
Saturday night to snap a four-
game losing streak.
Buehrle (4-3) struck out four
and issued an intentional walk. He
won his 101st career game and
has won consecutive starts after
not earning a win since April 23 -
the start just after his no-hitter
April 18.

Arizona St.


Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. - Arizona
State's Ike Davis was expecting
a fastball. He got a change-up
instead - and sent it 10 rows
up in the right-field bleachers.
Davis hit a tie-breaking
home run leading off the bot-
tom of the eighth inning
Saturday to give the Sun Devils
a 5-4 victory over UC Irvine in
the College World Series.
"That last one by Davis, I
threw probably one of the best
change-ups I had thrown all
day, and he was sitting on it,"
Anteaters pitcher Scott Gorgen
said. "I have no doubt in my
.mind that he knew that pitch
was coming."
Well, Ike?
"No. I was sitting on a fast-
ball. He left the change-up over
the middle," Davis said.
The Sun Devils (49-13)
advanced to a Monday game
against Oregon State. UC
Irvine (45-16-1), a first-time
CWS participant, will play Cal
State Fullerton in an elimina-
tion contest Monday.
The Sun Devils got solid
pitching from Mike Leake and
Jason Jarvis. Leake settled
.down after giving up four runs
in the fourth inning. He and
Jarvis (2-2) held the Anteaters
scoreless over the last five
innings. Jarvis, who took over
in the eighth, allowed one walk
'and struck out three.
"Our pitching staff is pretty
,underrated," ASU coach Pat
Murphy said.


Arizona State's CJ Retherford, right, is greeted
Brett Wallace after Retherford hit a home run again
the fifth inning of a College World Series basel
Saturday in Omaha.


Arizona State's pitching is
overshadowed by an offense
that came in with 75 home
runs in 61 games.
As usual, the Sun Devils
relied on their power to win
the first game of its 20th CWS,


scoring all their
balls. Matt Spenc

Gorgen (12-3), who was bid-
ding for his fifth straight com-
plete game.
"They were able to lift some
balls over the fence and we
weren't," UC Irvine coach
Dave Serrano said. "That's
kind of their M.O. as a team.
Their guys got some pitches to
hit, and we paid for it."
ASU, unbeaten in six NCAA
tournament games, ended
Gorgen's 17-inning shutout
streak in the second when
Spencer homered to right for a
3-0 lead.
The at-bat was in stark con-
_- trast to Spencer's previous
one at the CWS. Playing for
�.- North Carolina last year,
Spencer struck out looking as
a pinch-hitter in the fifth
inning of a 3-2 loss to Oregon
State in the championship
. game.
Leake held the Anteaters
scoreless on one hit through
three innings before running
. . . into trouble in the fourth.

UC Irvine


Associated Press
UC Irvine's Cody Cipriano (5) tags out Arizona State's Eric Sogard,
caught stealing second base in the third inning of a College World
Series baseball game on Saturday in Omaha, Neb.


"What can you say about
CJ?" Murphy said. "If we
played in our park, he would
have had three home runs
today."
For Gorgen, it was his worst
outing in five starts, since he
gave up six runs in five
innings against Pacific on May
11.
"Scott would admit he was a
little out of character,"
Serrano said. "He said to me
in the fourth inning that he
was having a hard time
breathing and getting relaxed.
There is a lot of excitement
when you're playing in
Rosenblatt Stadium. That was
probably the least amount of
stuff he's had in the last six
weeks, and he still kept a great


hitting team to five runs."
Gorgen wasn't the only one
who struggled.
ASU first baseman Brett
Wallace, the Pacific-10 player
of the year, was 0-for-4 with two
strikeouts. He had come into
the game with hits in nine of
his last 18 at-bats.
UC Irvine first baseman
Taylor Holiday went 0-for-3,
ending his 22-game hitting
streak
"We still have life left,"
Serrano said. "No matter who
we play Monday, you'll see us
back in character. We've got the
first game out of the way. This
team, when it has had its back
against the wall, has come out
swinging. I would expect noth-
ing different"


Beavers hang on for 3-2 win over Titans


Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. - Scott
'Santschi hit his first homer of
the season and had two RBIs,
'and defending champion
Oregon State survived some
nervous moments to defeat Cal
State Fullerton 3-2 in the
College World Series on
Saturday night.
OSU pitchers Jorge Reyes,
Joe Paterson and Eddie Kunz
combined to allow six hits as
the Beavers began their bid to
:become the first repeat cham-
pion since LSU in 1996-97.
Fullerton's Wes Roemer
struck out seven to become the
school's career leader.
Otherwise, it was another dis-
appointing CWS start for the
Arizona Diamondbacks' first-
round draft pick.
Oregon State (45-18) moves


to a Monday game against
Arizona State (49-13), which
defeated UC Irvine 5-4 on
Saturday The Titans (38-24)
will play UC Irvine (45-16-1) in
an elimination game Monday.
Mike Lissman homered in
the first and Santschi singled
in a run in the second to put
the Beavers up 2-0.
Roemer retired the next 13
in a row and 15 of 17 before
Santschi homered to right with
one out in the seventh to make
it 3-1.
It was Santschi's first home
run since. June 11, 2006, the
day the Beavers swept a super
regional against Stanford to
set the stage for their first
championship run in Omaha.
The Beavers, holding a
one-run lead, got two quick
outs to start the ninth before
the Titans made things inter-
esting.


Evan McArthur hit a short
fly, and shortstop Darwin
Barney and left fielder John
Wallace couldn't decide who
would catch it. Barney peeled
off at the last moment, leaving
Wallace in an awkward posi-
tion to make the play. Wallace
took a step left, then lunged to
his right, with the ball popping
out of his glove.
Kunz came on and gave up a
single to pinch-hitter Jon
Wilhite, putting runners at the
corners. Kunz then got pinch-
hitter Joel Weeks to ground out
to end the game.
The Titans, who got a home
run from Nick Mahin in the
third, were set up for a big
inning in the eighth after Joe
Scott singled and moved to
third when Clark Hardman's
hard hit up the middle deflect-
ed off Paterson's foot into right
field.


With runners on first and
third and none out, the Titans
tried a safety squeeze play.
Paterson fielded Josh
Fellhauer's bunt and caught
Scott in a rundown between
third and home. Hardman and
Fellhauer moved up to second
and third on the play before
Mahin's sacrifice fly pulled the
Titans to 3-2. Paterson got John
Curtis to fly out to end the
inning.
Reyes (6-3) allowed three
hits and one run in six innings
before giving way to Paterson
to start the seventh. Kunz
earned his 12th save.
Roemer (11-7), who came
into the CWS off three straight
complete games, worked eight
innings.
He struck out seven to run
his career total to 365, one
more than Adam Johnson
(1998-2000).

Tiger leaves a lot of other players feeling blue Sorenstam beats Ochoa


O AKMONT, Pa. - It was
blue shirt day at the U.S.
Open, or so it looked.
Tiger Woods set the fashion as
usual, but it seemed like half
the players got the same memo
from Nike on just what to wear
They must have
gotten the memo on
whining too,
because there was-
n't as much of that
going on. A day after -
the since-departed
Phil Mickelson
declared the course . ,
dangerous to the
health of golfers
everywhere, the Time D
USGA poured so Ap
much water on the
greens that COLUI
Oakmont Country
Club played less than its usual
snarly self.
Woods led all the blue shirts
with a 1-under 69 that could
have been a whole lot better
Most golf rounds can, of course,
-but it was especially true on this
day for Woods, who had one
eagle putt and 17 attempts at
birdie on a course that played to
an average of nearly 7 over par
the day before.
He didn't flinch until the 18th
hole, when a wayward tee shot
cost him his only bogey and left
him muttering unmentionables
to himself. No big deal, though,
because almost everyone else
except Aaron Baddeley was
spitting it up around him.
It wasn't enough to put him in
the lead, just enough to get him
in the final group. He'll tee off
Sunday in his traditional red
shirt knowing he's swinging
sweeter than ever, secure in the
knowledge that he's already
won a full dozen major champi-
onships.
That by itself has to have the
people on the leaderboard
alongside him feeling more
than just a bit blue.
"Tee to green, he's just awe-
some," playing partner Nick
Dougherty said. "He's the
man."


Actually, Baddeley is the
man, at least for now. The
Aussie best known for his com-
mercials with a car full of
blondes used a miracle shot on
the 17th hole and a finishing
birdie to craft a two-stroke lead
over Woods.
Listening to
Baddeley talk after-
H ward about how his
life is now calm and
complete, you
. .-:.S almost wanted to
' hand him the U.S.
Open trophy right
then. He seems
Unflappable, with-
ahlberg out the deer-caught-
orsT in-the-headlights
look that most play-
MINIST ers chasing their
first major champi-
onship against Woods usually
have.
And don't forget that the most
surprising statistic among all
the great ones Woods has
amassed is that he has never
come from behind in the final
round to win a major champi-
onship.
No matter Woods may not
think the average 10-handicap-
per can break 100 at Oakmont
this week, but the average 10-
handicapper surely believes
Woods will be the one standing
on the 18th green Sunday with
his third Open championship
well in hand.
With good reason, because
they've watched him do too
many unbelievable things
before not to believe he'll win
an Open once again.
And this time they're right
Now if only Baddeley plays
along. He doesn't always get the
message. He wore white on
Saturday, after all.
If ever Woods had a major
championship just there for the
pickings, though, it's this one.
He's not only the 500-pound
gorilla on a leaderboard filled
with wannabes, but the effort-
less way he played Saturday
showed he was in command of
all parts of his game.


Associated Press
Tiger Woods chips onto the 17th green during the third round of
the 107th U.S. Open Golf Championship at the Oakmont Country
Club on Saturday in Oakmont, Pa.


He shot a 69, but it just as eas-
ily could have been a 64. Woods
hit the first 17 greens, rolled the
ball beautifully with his putter
and with any luck at all would
already be leading this Open.
The 3-wood stingers off the
tee were center cut, his irons
rarely left the pin, and the putts
were always just the right
speed. He felt so good he even
pulled out the driver on the two
short par-4s and blasted away at
the green.
"I hit it crisp and clean,"
Woods said. "I controlled my
trajectory and was able to move
the ball both ways."
In other words, the best play-
er of his era is playing as good
as he can, which has to be about
as frightening to other players
as the Oakmont rough was to
Mickelson. The crowd sur-
rounding the ninth tee loved it
so much that it gave Woods two
ovations, one after he hit a 3-
wood down the middle and the
second when he emerged from
a Port-a-Potty to go hit his ball
again.
Baddeley noted, quite cor-
rectly and quite bravely, that he
has played with Woods in two
Masters and understands what


goes with the circus that sur-
rounds him. But those were
early rounds and he's never
seen anything like he'll see
midafternoon Sunday when the
sun-soaked and beer-drenched
crowd of some 45,000 starts
roaring for Woods the moment
he leaves the practice green
and heads for the first tee.
Add in the pressure of play-
ing for a major championship,
and this has the potential to get
ugly for a group of contenders
who haven't won majors before.
"They're going to deal with
emotions they probably haven't
dealt with before," Woods
warned. "I've been there
before. I know what it takes."
Those aren't just fighting
words.
Woods may not have come
from behind in the final to win
a major before, but a big rea-
son behind that is that when
he's playing well he's usually
leading after Saturday
He's a finisher like the game
has never seen, and the evi-
dence is the 12 major titles he
already has stashed away.
Don't be surprised on Sunday
when he makes it a baker's
dozen.


in Acapulco skms game


Associated Press

ACAPULCO, Mexico -
Annika Sorenstam edged top-
ranked Lorena Ochoa on
Saturday in a $15,000-a-hole
skins competition at the ocean-
side Tres Vidas course, taking
home $165,000 to Ochoa's
$105,000.
It was the second time in less
than a year that Sorenstam has
defeated the Mexican star on
her home turf: In September,
the Swede took the first
$270,000 skins event between
the two at the same windswept
course - and for the same
amount: $165,000.
Ochoa, who overtook
Sorenstam as the world's top
female golfer in April, did well
on the fairways, but struggled
on the greens, losing to
Sorenstam on the fourth extra
hole with the final $45,000 at
stake.
Pressure mounted at the
start, with the players halving
the first five holes with pars.
Sorenstam, who returned to
competition three weeks ago
after neck and back injuries,
was steady and confident,
pulling ahead on the 157-yard
sixth hole, at the ocean's edge,
with a par for $90,000.
Ochoa, who had played neck-
and-neck with Sorenstam, fell
apart on the windswept green,
overshooting a long putt and
narrowly missing a drop onto
the beach below. She missed a
second, shorter putt and settled
for a bogey
Sorenstam took the next
hole, a par 4, with a birdie.
Then Ochoa came back with a
birdie on the par-4 ninth to take
$30,000.
Yet Sorenstam seemed des-
tined for victory at the start of
the back nine, winning a total
of $120,000 by the 10th hole on a
birdie. But Ochoa rallied after
that, winning with birdies on
the 13th and 15th holes for a

total of $105,000.
Sorenstam struggled, landing
on the beach just short of the
waves on the 12th hole and put-
ting her ball in the water on the
next
The event came down to the
18th hole, a 395-yard, par 4
pocked with bunkers. The two
were forced to replay the hole
four times, each making par
The fifth time seemed to be
headed for another halve, but
Ochoa missed a short putt, her
ball circling the hole before
popping out for a bogey.
Despite the intense competi-
tion, the two former University
of Arizona players acted like
old friends, sometimes chatting
as they walked the fairway and
complimenting each other's
play at the end of the game.
Sorenstam played down her
win, saying "anything can hap-
pen" in skins.
"It was very, very close," she
said, adding that it was "tough
to keep up with Lorena."

He won the Australian Open

1999 by holding off Greg
Norman and Colin
Montgomerie, saying then that
his goal was to become better
than Woods. He won the
Australian Open a year later as

America, struggling to get his

PGA Tour only last year.
But he showed impressive

As the leaders began to lose
ground, Baddeley surged
ahead. He made three birdies
in a four-hole stretch, culmi-
nating with a 6-foot putt on the
13th hole that stretched his
lead to three. But he took

Paul Hawkins, Managing Director of Hawk-Eye poses for photog-
raphers as he takes a break from calibrating the 'Hawk-Eye' video
line call system on Number One Court at Wimbledon All England
Tennis Club on Friday in London.


Another past Wimbledon
champion, Lleyton Hewitt,
noted, "I'm not the biggest fan
of it," before adding, "It does
bring the public and the fans
into it" - pointing to a big rea-
son why major tournaments
went this route.
At events large and small,
spectators clap or shout when
players challenge calls, then
become even more enthusias-
tic when replays are shown,
getting as animated about the
video as any volley.
Through the first three days
of the Queen's Club tourna-
ment, there were 25 chal-
lenges, and eight calls were
overturned, a 32 percent suc-
cess rate. That's similar to last
year's U.S. Open, where 72 of

green, Baddeley's ball tum-
bled down the slope of a
bunker and stayed in the thick
grass just above the sand.
Gripping the club almost to the
shaft, the ball up to his shins,
he somehow hit wedge onto
the fringe and walked off with
a par.
Then came the birdie on No.
18, one more shot between him
and Woods.
"I've played with Tiger in
two Masters," said Baddeley,
who also played with him in
2000. "It's not abnormal to play
with Tiger in the majors. Tiger
is the best player in the world,
but I feel like I'm playing nice-
ly."
Woods finally looked like he
was on his game, too, on the
verge of the first bogey-free
round at Oakmont until his tee
shot found the right fairway
bunker and he couldn't reach
the green. Even so, he couldn't
argue with his position.
"Right in the mix," Woods
said.
Oakmont was on the edge of
being close to impossible
Friday afternoon, and the
USGA responded by twice
watering the greens overnight,
then again two hours before
the third round.

Too much? Well, how about

One in particular.
Woods was close to perfect
from tee-to-green, giving him-
self realistic birdie chances on
every hole and rarely having to
work for par. An 8-iron stopped
8 feet away on No. 3 for birdie,'
and he followed that with a 3-
iron into 20 feet on the par-5
fourth and a chance at eagle.
He dropped his putter and
placed his hands on his knees
when it broke in front of the.
cup, something Woods got used
to seeing.
He had putts inside 15 feet
on the fifth and seventh that he
barely touched because they
were above the hole, longer
putts on the eighth and ninth
that tickled the edge of the
cup.
Most impressive of all was
his control, hitting every green
in regulation until the final
hole.
"If he'd putted like I did,
he'd have shot 6 under," said
first-round leader Nick
Dougherty, who played with
Woods and shot 74. "Tee to
green, he's just awesome. It's
going to take something pretty
special to beat him tomorrow.
If he plays like that tomorrow,
nobody's going to beat him."
But just like Saturday at the
Masters, Woods didn't quite
finish it off.
He was atop the leader-
board at Augusta National
until a bogey-bogey finish put
him one shot behind Stuart
Appleby.

Rivals not running scared


NASCAR not afraid of soon to be

Hendrick Dream Team in 2008


Associated Press

BROOKLYN, Mich. - Rick
Hendrick has two series cham-
pions in his stable, lucrative
sponsorship, seemingly end-
less resources and an unwaver-
ing commitment to his organi-
zation.
It's given him the most domi-
nant team in NASCAR, which
enters Sunday's race at
Michigan International
Speedway seeking its 11th vic-
tory of the season.
Now Dale Earnhardt Jr. is to
join the team next season, cre-
ating a lineup likened to
NASCAR's version of the New
York Yankees. Just how power-
ful it makes the team remains
to be seen. Right now, however,
rival owners aren't too con-
cerned with Hendrick's assem-
bly of a Murderer's Row on
wheels.
"We were going to have to
race Junior in a Chevrolet
somewhere, so for him to be
with Hendrick is just fine with
me," said Jack Roush, who
fields a five-car team that
includes 2003 series champion
Matt Kenseth.
"Certainly I didn't have a say
in it They didn't ask me for
approval or permission. But I


wouldn't trade my lineup of
drivers for any I see out there."
Roush was the best of
NASCAR just two seasons ago,
when he put all five of his cars
in the Chase for the champi-
onship. Hendrick had just one
- Jimmie Johnson - as four-
time series champion Jeff
Gordon failed to make the
field.
The cyclical nature of
NASCAR has been evident in
the 50 races since, with
Hendrick replacing Roush at
the top of the sport.
Hendrick did it by spending
lavishly on research, develop-
ment and dedicated test teams.
He was rewarded last season
with three cars in the Chase
and Johnson's first champi-
onship. The momentum car-
ried into this season, and
Hendrick is close to unbeat-
able with 10 wins through 14
races.
"Rick's a powerhouse team.
He's got great stuff, great driv-
ers," said Ray Evernham, who
won three championships as a
crew chief for Hendrick "It's a
free country and fair trade. We
all have the same opportunity
that Rick Hendrick has. Right
now he's built the place to go.
But that's not to say somebody


Associated Press
Hendricks Motorsports driver Jimmie Johnson enters his car at Michigan International Speedway
Saturday in Brooklyn, Mich. With a pair of superstar drivers in Johnson and Jeff Gordon and an unbe-
lievable winning percentage this season, Hendrick Motorsports was already the best in NASCAR. The
addition of Dale Earnhardt Jr. next season will make the team a Murder's Row on wheels, and make
beating them even harder.


else can't do it.
"Jack Roush had it a number
of years ago. Rick's got it right
now. You can't begrudge some-
body and say it's good for the
sport or bad for the sport. But
this sport is cyclical. It comes
and goes."


Hendrick is the first to admit
his time at the top might be.
fleeting, and fully expects his
teams to struggle at some point
this season. And while 10 wins
early in the season are tremen-
dous, he'd rather win the last
10 races of the year - when


the championship is on the
line.
"We have been very fortu-
nate this year," he said. "I have
to check the horseshoe to
make sure it hasn't fallen com-
pletely out every morning
because we've had some races


this year that we could (have
lost). And you're going to be
asking me probably 10 races
from now, 'Hey, what hap-
pened?' And we're going to be
doing the same thing."
Adding Earnhardt to the sta-
ble guarantees nothing in
terms of wins or champi-
onships, and Hendrick admits
to already feeling the pressure
of needing to help Junior
achieve his goal of winning a
title.
The Hendrick drivers aren't
sure yet just what Earnhardt
will add to the mix because
until he gets into one of their
cars and starts sitting in on
meetings everything is
unknown.
But Gordon is certain the
organization didn't need to
sign NASCAR's most popular
driver to make it a dream
team.
"I felt that way before Junior
was coming," he said. "I feel
like we have a great organiza-
tion.
I will put this on the record:
I'm pretty sure this will be the
last person he ever drives for
because I know what kind of
person Rick Hendrick is and
what kind of organization we
have and once you come here,
you don't want to go anywhere
else.
"It's just that good of an
organization and that good of
people."


Waltrip makes another change


Driver will

replace David

Reutimann

next weekend
Associated Press

BROOKLYN, Mich. -
Michael Waltrip again juggled
his roles as team owner and
driver Saturday, replacing
David Reutimann for next
weekend's race at Infineon
Raceway.
PJ. Jones will drive on the
road course while Reutiianna
will concentrate on the Biuch
Series race in Milwaukee
Reutimann is fou rth in the
Busch standings.
Reutimann, who is 43rd in
the Cup standings. i, not
assured a spot in the field and
Waltrip believed Jones had a
better chance of qualifying the
car.
"It just wasn't fair to David,"
Waltrip said. "He has no expe-
rience at Sonoma and we need-
ed to put the car in the show,"
Waltrip said. "It's nothing
against David at all, he's going
to focus on the Busch car and
we're going to see if PJ. can get
the car in the race."
Earlier this week, Waltrip
said he would step out of his
own car to let Terry Labonte
race it at Sonoma. Waltrip has
missed 12 of the 14 races this
season, but he did make the
field for Sunday's event at
Michigan International
Speedway.
COURTING KYLE: Kevin
Harvick isn't interested in hav-
ing Kyle Busch as a teammate.
Asked if he could envision
Busch at Richard Childress
Racing, Harvick said "no"
without elaborating. That
doesn't mean car owner
Richard Childress isn't inter-
ested in the 22-year-old Busch.
"Anybody would look at Kyle
right now - any team in here,"
Childress said. "Kyle's a really
talented young driver and I
just think he'd be the future of
any team that he went to."
Childress has a history of
working with untamed drivers
- and Harvick was one him-
self during the early part of his
Cup career And in the case of
Busch, he thinks the driver
may be being judged unfairly.
"You have to remember his
age, I can name you eight or 10

LEAVING HENDRICK:
Brian Vickers wasn't surprised
Kyle Busch became the odd
man out at Hendrick
Motorsports when the team
signed Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Vickers spent four seasons
in a Cup car at Hendrick but
asked out of his contract last
summer when he grew frus-
trated with his performance.
Stuck in the shadow of Jeff
Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and
Busch at Hendrick, Vickers is
now the lead driver at Team
Red Bull.
He was replaced by Casey
Mears at Hendrick

NOT GOING ANYWHERE:
Alan Gustafson won't be leav-
ing Hendrick Motorsports,
even if it means accepting a
new role after Kyle Busch is
gone.
Busch's crew chief said he's
loyal to team owner Rick
Hendrick, and those personal
ties will keep him in the organ-
ization.
"I expect to be a crew chief
at Hendrick MQtorsports, but 1
will make the statement that I
will be at Hendrick
Motorsports next year regard-
less," Gustafson said. "I'd
rather sweep floors for Rick
Hendrick than be a crew chief
for someone else."
Hendrick has built an
empire through that kind of
employee loyalty, and it played
a part in Dale Earnhardt Jr's
decision to drive for the owner
beginning next season.
Earnhardt will replace Busch,
who has been released from
his contract.
Earnhardt hasn't been
assigned a car or crew just yet.
If his current crew chief can
get out of his contract at DEI,
there's a chance he and Tony
Eury Jr could be reunited at
Hendrick

raced under the No. 8 and
Junior has used it since enter-
ing the Cup series in 1999. But
Dale Earnhardt Inc. holds the
rights to the number, which is
leased each season from
NASCAR.
He's yet to formally ask his
stepmother, Teresa, to relin-
quish the number and wasn't
sure he has a realistic chance
of obtaining it.
"Regardless if we do or we
don't, it would be great to keep
the eight," he said. "I'm sure
my fans would appreciate that.
You kind of have to keep the
mind-set that you might have to
change numbers, so you start
looking at other numbers and
other things that might be
interesting to you.
"There are a lot of numbers
out there that I could use or
would use or would like to use.
It would be kind of cool."
Asked if he already had a
contingency plan, Earnhardt
said nothing sticks out.
"You've got to look at every-
thing," he said. "I'd like to
design the cars myself and get
into how the cars look them-
selves. So I'd like to be a big
part of not only the decision of
what number we are but how
the number itself and how the
car itself looks with regards to
how the sponsor feels about
that.
"They might not like my
ideas, so we'll have to see."

Kvapil scores first


win in three years


Associated Press

BROOKLYN, Mich. - 0
patiently stalked Kyle
Busch around Michigan
International Speedway,
finally passing him with
one lap to go Saturday to
score his first Craftsman
Truck Series win since
2004.
Busch led four times for
38 laps, but was struggling
to control his Chevrolet
when Kvapil closed in on
him over the final 10 laps.
Kvapil, the 2003 series
champion, made several
peeks around him, only to
scoot back in line behind
Busch.
He finally attempted a
pass in the fourth turn, slid-
ing ahead of Busch as they
closed in on the start/finsh
line with the white flag wav-
ing above them. Kvapil then
pulled away on the final lap
to win for the first time
since Sept 18, 2004.
"I knew I was a little bet-
ter than Kyle, but I just did-
n't want to get out there too
soon," said Kvapil, who
started from the pole.
It was Kvapil's second
win at Michigan, sixth of his
career, but first since he
joined Roush Fenway
Racing at the start of this
season. He replaced Mark
Martin, who won six times
in the truck last season.
"It feels like it's been for-
ever," said Kvapil. "There
were big shoes to fill after
Mark Martin left this team."
Crew chief Mike Beam
said the team had been
feeling the heat to get back
to Victory Lane. They took
pride in finally doing it at
MIS, which is team owner
Jack Roush's home track
"We've struggled all year,
we felt we've really let
Travis down," Beam said. "I

knew Travis could do this,
we've got all the confidence
in him. And it's good to win
here for Jack in Michigan,
they've been putting the
heat on us - this is our
Daytona 500."
Busch said his truck was
too loose to hold offKvapil's
charge.
"I was all over the place,
the middle, the bottom, the
top," Busch said. "I just
could never find a place
that would let me get a good
run off the corner. Our
truck was good enough,
solid enough to win the
race, but just not quite good
enough to get where I need-
ed to be off the corner"
Brendan Gaughan fin-
ished third and was fol-
lowed by Mike Skinner, Ted
Musgrave, Rick Crawford
and Todd Bodine. Kevin

rounded out the top 10.
Skinner extended his
lead in the standings to 113
points over Hornaday.

,I ..M .. .. Mor..t" . ,,Long tte'ry:


DB rKZIK IVIUUKOORE
AP television writer

When it comes to art, Simon Schama
isn't so interested in prettiness as in
another P-word: power.
"Power of Art," the new PBS series from
this noted writer-scholar, explores power-
ful turning points in the lives of eight
artists and the masterpieces that resulted
- defining their careers and forever
changing the way the world sees art
Each artist was facing a crisis. Each art-
work clashed with a hostile or indifferent
public. But art stood its ground.
"Power of Art" melds dramatic re-enact-
ments, location shooting and Schama's
spirited narration to return immortal art-
works to their moment of creation, and
restore them to the living world we all
share.
"This is not a series about things that
hang on walls; it is not about decor or pret-
tiness," Schama says. "It is a series about
the force, the need, the passion of art"
Monday at 9 p.m. EDT (check local list-
ings), this cinematic journey begins with
Vincent van Gogh. In "Wheatfield with
Crows" (painted in July 1890, the last
month of his troubled life) he sought to
convey a lush landscape in a non-literal
way that captures its essence beyond the
simply visual.
"It's the painting that begins modern
art," Schama says.
Then, at 10 p.m., the focus turns to Pablo
Picasso and "Guernica," the giant mural
memorializing Nazi Germany's 1937 aerial
obliteration of a small Basque village.
Considered one of modern art's most pow-
erful anti-war statements, "it can instruct
us on the obligations of being human,"
Schama says.
Future episodes range from investiga-
tions of Michelangelo Merisi da
Caravaggio (1571-1610) and his "David
With the Head of Goliath," to Mark Rothko
(1903-1970) and his Seagram murals.
- Other shows this week to look out for:
* Was Titanic a doomed ship, plagued
with design flaws even before it set off on
its single, fatal voyage? Would structural
problems have caused it to break apart in
the churning Atlantic waters even if it had-
n't struck an iceberg? Was a cover-up
arranged in the aftermath of the disaster
to hide the ship's flaws from investigators
and the public? A History Channel film,
"Titanic's Achilles Heel," explores these
questions, picking up from last year's
"Titanic: Missing Pieces" to examine why
the ship may have broken apart earlier
than previously thought as it sank. The
new film also probes further into whether

the ship's builders were aware of its prob-
lems even as its thousands of passengers
were boarding. The documentary airs
Sunday at 8 p.m.
* An upscale subdivision, Meadowlands
is full of unusual residents who are full of
secrets. Now the neighborhood is about to
increase by four when the Brogan family
moves into their lovely new home. Here's
patriarch Danny (David Morrissey), a
dreamer with too many failures in his
past. He's married to Evelyn (Lucy Cohu),
who's wearying of Danny's mad scramble
for success. The kids are Zoe (Felicity
Jones), a precocious 17-year-old, and her
twin brother Mark (Harry Treadaway),
who never speaks. What are they doing
there? You find out soon enough when
"Meadowlands," an unusual drama series,
premieres Sunday at 10 p.m. on Showtime.
But there are lots more questions after
that, as you follow the offbeat Brogans set-
tling into their equally offbeat community
- and trying to preserve the secrets that
sent them there.
* Nearly a decade ago, Jemaine
Clement joined his fellow New Zealander
Bret McKenzie in an act initially meant as
a way for these bourgeoning entertainers
to develop their guitar skills. One thing led
to another, and the partners made a name
for themselves in Australia and England
as a comedy act called Flight of the


Conchords. Now they've come to HBO, and
brought their characters - callow, nerdy
but hoping for the big time - to New York
to become singing stars. The new half-
hour comedy series, "Flight of the
Conchords," tracks their adventures, with
a special bonus: The lads have a way of
bursting into song in mid-scene, comically
embroidering the action with music and
lyrics. The series premieres Sunday at
10:30 p.m.
E At Pittsburgh's St. Jude Regional
Transplant Center, Dr. Nathaniel Grant is
driven, domineering, ready to take risks,
kind of cranky. In short, he's just the kind
of guy you want when you need an organ
transplant done good and fast. But the
human element can be as complicated as
the surgery on this new TNT drama,
"Heartland." Treat Williams
("Everwood," "Brothers & Sisters") plays
Grant, who on the premiere implants a
teenage girl with the heart of a woman
fatally injured in a car accident Then the
donor's husband demands to see the girl
who received his wife's heart, despite
strict protocols against the donor's family
getting any information about an organ
recipient. The cast also includes Kari
Matchett ("24," "Invasion"), Rockmond
Dunbar, Chris William Martin and Dabney
Coleman. "Heartland" airs Monday at 10
p.m.


Barker takes home Daytime Emmy


Associated Press


LOS ANGELES - After 35 years of giv-
ing away prizes, newly retired Bob Barker
picked up one of his own at the Daytime
Emmy Awards on Friday night.
The 83-year-old former emcee of "The
Price Is Right" won his 19th trophy as
game-show host, beating a field that
included last year's winner, Alex Trebek
of'Jeopardy!"
"Come on down!" presenter Ellen
DeGeneres shouted.
Barker received his second of three
standing ovations of the night, having got-
ten his first when he introduced the
evening's first presenters while on the
arms of "Barker's Beauties," models from
his show.
"This proves that the judges had sympa-
thy for an old man who doesn't have a job,"
quipped Barker, who retired last week
after 35 years on "The Price Is Right" and
50 years in television.
"I want to thank the television viewers
across the country for inviting me into
their homes for 50 years," he said, before
concluding with his signature signoff.
"And remember, help control the pet pop-
ulation. Have your pet spayed or
neutered."
Barker came into the show already a
winner. He earned his 18th trophy at
Thursday night's ceremony for craft cate-
gories as executive producer of "The Price
Is Right"
Barker's career was honored during the
ceremony, which aired live on CBS from
the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles follow-
ing the network's prime-time rebroadcast
of Barker's last "Price" show.
His early victory keyed a big night for
CBS, which won nine trophies to go with
its seven creative arts awards Thursday,
giving the network a leading 16 wins.
"Guiding Light," which came in with a
leading 17 nominations, tied another CBS
soap opera, "The Young and the Restless,"
for drama series honors.
PBS was second with 15 awards, includ-
ing 13 creative arts trophies. Syndicated
shows earned 11 trophies, including six by
DeGeneres and "The Ellen DeGeneres
Show." ABC was fourth with nine wins,
while NBC earned five.
DeGeneres scored her fourth consecu-
tive victory for talk show and third win in
a row for talk show host, keeping "The
View" co-hosts Barbara Walters, Joy

recently departed Rosie O'Donnell win-
less.
"I really am shocked," DeGeneres said
before acknowledging "The View" ladies
and O'Donnell's controversial yearlong
stint. "I thought Rosie brought a lot of new
viewers to daytime television and it was
interesting."
DeGeneres joked that she planned to
take a page from "The View" on her show.
"And I want to just start with something
controversial right now to kick it off and I
know this might not be popular and I don't
care because that's what I'm doing," she
said. "I just want to say it - I think Bob
Barker is a quitter."
Barker laughed along with the rest of
the audience.
CBS also swept the lead acting cate-

gories, with victories for Maura West of "As
the World Turns" and Christian LeBlanc
of "The Young and the Restless," day-
time's No. 1 rated show.
West picked up her first Daytime Emmy
for playing Carly, whose emotional
breakup with husband Jack was a major
storyline. She defeated four-time winner
Kim Zimmer of "Guiding Light" in a cate-
gory where all five nominees star on CBS
soaps.
"It's so much heavier than I thought,"
said West, who began watching the soap
opera in high school and met her real-life
husband on the show. "I feel like I'm going
to throw up. I'm just thrilled to bits and
pieces."
LeBlanc won his first trophy in 2005.
This time, he upset a field that included
co-star Peter Bergman, last year's winner
Anthony Geary of "General Hospital,"
Michael Park of "As the World Turns," and
Ricky Paull Goldin of "Guiding Light."
Genie Francis of "General Hospital"
claimed her first Daytime Emmy for sup-
porting actress in a drama series. Francis
returned to the soap opera last year as
Laura Spencer, a role she began playing at
age 14.
"Oh my goodness!" she said. "Thank you
so much. I am overwhelmed. I've waited
31 years for this moment"
Francis and co-star Geary were part of
the most watched event in daytime televi-
sion history when their characters mar-
ried 26 years ago.
Francis' "General Hospital" co-star,
Rick Hearst, won supporting actor honors.
Jennifer Landon of "As the World
Turns" won her second consecutive award
for younger actress in a drama series. She
thanked her late father, actor Michael
Landon.
There was a tie for performer in a chil-
dren's series between "Sesame Street's"
Kevin Clash, who plays Elmo, and Caroll
Spinney, who plays Oscar the Grouch.
"I started watching this show when I
was 10 years old," said Clash, who also
won last year and had a tuxedoed Elmo on
his arm. "My mom thought I would go
blind watching it trying to figure out how
to build these things. I just love living on
the street of 'Sesame Street."'
A Lifetime Achievement Award went to
Lee Phillip Bell, who co-created "The
Young and the Restless" and "The Bold
and the Beautiful" with late husband
William J. Bell.

opinion, the original issue was "much
to do about nothing."
If my memory is correct, the original
law was passed because of leaks of the
identity in newspapers of real CIA
covert agents overseas. As a result of
those leaks some of the U.S. cells were
rolled up and people working for us
were executed. This case involved a
CIA agent who worked almost every
day at Langley behind a desk. If you
were interested in what she did, all you
had to do was follow her to work.
Libby's problem was lying to the
grand jury. The Bush Administration
has enough going wrong in Iraq and, of
course, self-inflicted wounds resulting
from the dismissal of U.S. Attorneys


and the calls for Attorney Gen. Alberto
Gonzales' resignation, and the
Immigration Bill. The only offsetting
news is that the grand jury indicted
Congressman William Jefferson (D-La.)
on multiple charges. Republicans in
the House have called for his ouster
from the House and, of course, the
Democrats are going to be forced to
take action. It appears that the culture
of corruption is not just a one-party
problem.

Impact of

hero's death

hard to gauge
This time, I'm glad peo-
ple were upset. Even
the calls chastising the
Chronicle were appreciated.
Here's a typical call - this
one to our Sound Off line -
expressing frustration that the
time of the procession for the
late Sgt. Robert Surber from
Brooksville Airport to Floral
City wasn't publicized - or,
more accurately, that it was
canceled.
"I'm calling on behalf of the
residents of Tarawood in
Floral City. We had intended to
line up for the procession for
Sgt Surber, and, due to your
paper that said the procession
was canceled, we could not
pay our respects to this hero.
We are so disappointed ... I'm
very, very disgusted."
Not to belabor the details,
but Friday, June 8, Chas. E.
Davis Funeral Home and
members of our news staff
were in contact to keep the
public apprised of details of
the return of the fallen hero.

Illness parity
Do you think mental illness should
be treated like any other illness, i.e.,
insurance coverage while someone is
ill? Statistics show this illness does
not cost more than any other, and yet
insurers are afraid that parity will be
made law nationally. (Parity: A $10-
word meaning equal treatment finan-
cially in the realm of insurance.)
Our local NAMI-Citrus group has a
great friend in Dr. David Shern, now
president and CEO of Mental Health
America, formerly known as The
National Mental Health Association.
He has advised us that bills to pro-
vide parity are before three commit-
tees, with the Senate versions seem-
ingly OK, but much work still needing
to be done. Other mental health
organizations are working with MHA
on this project, including national
NAMI.
It is time to stop thinking this is
something that happens "to someone
else." Statistics show one out of every
five persons will experience some
type or degree of mental illness in
their lifetime. It is time to stop think-
ing the brain is not attached to the
body, as mental illness is a bona fide
illness of the body, the body part being
a brain with a chemistry disorder.
Mental Health America is in the
midst of a campaign for a Vision for
Change in the field of mental health
care, with the first challenge to elimi-
nate discrimination in access to men-
tal health care. They are asking for
funds to "Bring Wellness Home." You
could reach them at www.mental-
healthamerica.net for ways to help
end what amounts to a national dis-
grace.
Florida ranks 48th of all the states
in spending on mental health issues.
Here in Citrus county, we, along with
four other counties, are in District 13
of Department of Children and
Families, which not too long ago
ranked at the bottom of funding.

displeasure with how he was treated,
and the dire consequences of policies
he disagreed with.
He's even putting out word that he
would be open to serving in a future
administration, ignoring the obvious
hubris of such an offer. Candidates in
both parties, notably Democrat Barack
Obama and Republican John McCain,
have sought his advice. He remains an
icon in many quarters, a tribute to his
larger-than-life presence and the
decency and honor he projects as a
soldier for whom politics is a footnote
in a distinguished military career.
Powell was among those who coun-
seled against going to Baghdad during
the first Gulf War in 1991, and again in
2002, during the run-up to the Iraq
invasion. He invoked the Pottery Barn
rule, "Break it and you own it"
He disagrees with the assessment
that if he had spoken out more force-
fully and publicly about his opposition
to the war that he could have prevent-
ed Bush from launching the invasion.
We'll never know if that's true. What
we do know is that Powell made a
series of bad judgments that collec-
tively must pain him, as they do his
many admirers. He didn't check out
vigorously enough the administra-
tion's assertions about what Saddam
had, and what he was up to. When he
realized he had been duped, he didn't


correct the error. He sat back and did,
nothing while Bush was reelected. If.
he had such profound differences with",
the administration, as he now express-n
es, the honorable course would have
been to resign. Instead he served until
the end of Bush's first term and would;>:
have stayed on as Secretary of State :
Bush hadn't effectively forced him oui4,

Powell had an obligation to reveal,
what he knew.
Associating with Powell and receiv-
ing his blessing is viewed by Powell as
an electoral plus for a presidential
candidate in either party. But closer
scrutiny of Powell and his record in
the Bush administration should give
pause to those who court him for polit-
ical advantage. His moment in history
flamed and flickered at the UN only to
vanish in his subsequent silence.

BY DOUGLAS COHN AND
ELEANOR CLIFT
WASHINGTON - It was one of
those quick news flashes: Colin Powell
says he may not support a Republican
in '08. He's looking for the best person
for the job regardless of party. If only
Powell had made this statement in
2004, he could have swung the election
and spared us from four more years of
George W Bush.
Powell knew in '04 that he had been
used by the Bush administration to
advance a case for war that was mis-
leading. He put his considerable credi-
bility on the line when he went before
the United Nations and painted
Saddam Hussein as a grave and imme-
diate threat with the capability and the
intent to launch weapons of mass
destruction. Powell's speech was cred-
ited at the time with mustering the sup-
port Bush needed at home and abroad
to carry out the invasion of Iraq.
After a lifetime of service to the
nation, Powell will be remembered
most for that infamous U.N. speech
almost five years ago. Why did it take
him so long to stand up and say that he
had been misled and manipulated?
Unlike CIA director George Tenet,
Powell wasn't even saving his mea
culpa for a book He's already written
his autobiography and is apparently
not prepared to do a tell-all on the
Bush administration. Instead, he
drops hints every now and then of his

Changes for worse
Citizens of Beverly Hills, it is
time for us to take back our
neighborhood. We moved here
three years ago and we rented
a home in the older section of
tpwn to become acquainted
with the area. Within a few
rhonths, we knew that north of
Roosevelt was overrun by feral
dats, drug houses and run-
down, dirty and unsightly
rental houses. So we started
looking for a house to buy
siquth of Regina. We thought
ve would be safe. We bought a
iome and started landscaping
arid remooelnng We even put
up a 4-foot chain-link fence for
c!,ir dog. Now, two years later,
dor quiet, beautiful street has
tWo sex offenders living nearby,
three drug houses that we
know of, and, worst of all,
rental houses with trash all
around the property, high
weeds and grass, three and


four vehicles in the yard. Some
of these houses are owned by
Realtors. Others, the landlords
are out of state. What is the
worst now is large, vicious dogs
that are running loose chasing
myself and my neighbors into
their houses and trying to jump
my 4-foot fence while I'm in
the yard working. We have
called the sheriff's office and
animal control several times
just this week. I can't believe
the change in our neighbor-
hood in just three short years.
Take action
In regards to the "What hap-
pened to Beverly Hills" Sound
Off on June 10: The conditions
you speak of are happening
because the community and its
institutions are allowing it to
happen. Landlords get away
with shoddy houses and lousy
tenants because there is no
county oversight or accounta-


ability in this area. There are
dogs and cats running loose
because most people turn a
blind eye and don't turn in the
people with unlicensed ani-
mals. The drug houses, by and
large, are here because most
people complain but make
excuses not to call the sheriff's
tip lines anonymously. The
cops can't help you if they
aren't aware of the problem.
The county can't enforce codes
that they are unaware of. The
vegetation 2 foot tall in the
back yard is a breeding ground
for rats. I personally know
these situations and I hear
nothing but complaints but no
action. Until people start
standing up for their rights, the
landlords, renters, dope deal-
ers, stray dogs and cats will
continue to take the neighbor-
hood down while the Civic
Association and the county
commissioners play the fiddle.

Michael Moore was in Cuba. He

There was a gentleman at
Lowe's this morning who had
one of the large movers that
you put lumber on and he had
a pit bull and a boxer on one
side and the other and took

new homes and businesses.
Talk about being out of
touch.
The Legislature is going to
force counties and cities to roll
back the tax rate. It most likely
will figure out a way for home-
owners to have portable home-
stead protection so the
increased valuation of homes
doesn't kill them. And it will
extend some type of tax rate
protection to small businesses.
All of this will mean less
money for local government
And while your local elected
officials will tell you otherwise,

entered Citrus County were
unable to do so.
It's very unfortunate. No one
deserves to be honored more
than a soldier who has given
his life for our country.

After two major droughts in
six years, the people of
Florida, in particular on the
Nature Coast, ought to be con-
cerned about the quantity,
quality, allocation and manage-
ment of our most precious nat-
ural resource, water.
At a recent Water Summit
sponsored by the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District (SWFWMD), Executive
Director David Moore told par-
ticipants that Conservation is
the quickest, most effective
and most inexpensive way to
grow water supply. We can do it
today; every gallon saved stays
in the water pipe; and it costs
absolutely nothing - no new
infrastructure, no regulation,
no increased taxes. Everyone
in the room agreed.
In the northwest portion of
Citrus County, citizens, their
elected representatives and
regional water managers have
an opportunity to put this con-
servation strategy to work. At
present, there is an 8,000-acre
expanse of land between U.S.
19 and the Gulf of Mexico, an
area roughly the size of
Inverness and Crystal River
combined, zoned for destruc-
tion by mining. The aquifer will
be opened and laid bare. It
doesn't take a hydrologist to
understand that when acre
after acre of water is exposed to
sun and wind, immense quanti-


most anything that helps an
actual citizen in need. You'll
hear a lot of threats about fir-
ing police officers and firemen.
They will want you to share
their pain.
But let's remember our
recent history. During the past
two years, the assessed value of
land and property in Citrus
County has increased by 55
percent That means by hold-
ing the millage rate steady,
spending of local tax dollars
would increase by 55 percent
Now local government was
forced to back off those

stopped to get a bottle of water.
The customer in front of me
asked the cashier what all the
squad cars were doing at the
surrounding street corners.
The cashier's assumption was
that lawmen were searching
for a crime suspect.
As I continued my short hike,
I thought I was ahead of sched-
ule and that veterans, school-
aged children, housewives and
working people would emerge
from their homes and offices to
pay their respects.
To my surprise, the moment I
reached the intersection, the


ties will be lost to evaporation.
At this latitude, open water
evaporates at a rate of 48 inch-
es (4 feet) per year. Each 1,000
acres of aquifer exposed will
result in a loss of more than 3.5
million gallons per day (mgd),
enough water to cover 11 acres
to a depth of one foot - water
that is lost every day of every
year, forever, traded for a one-
time supply of rock.
Citrus County's Future Land
Use Plan, through its land allo-
cation to surface mining, paves
the way for the eventual loss of
28 mgd (million gallons per
day); more water than is slated
to be produced at a cost of $140
million dollars by the trouble-
plagued desalinization plant in
Tampa Bay; more water than is
required to meet the needs of
the entire 2007 population of
Citrus County.
When the land has been
stripped of everything valu-
able, including our water, the
miners from Mexico (CEMEX)
and Switzerland (HOLCIM)
will move on. They would have
you believe that this loss of
water is not important, that this
is "only water on its way to the
Gulf." However, data compiled
by our state agencies show that
the height of the fresh water
column in the vicinity of the
Cemex mine is steadily dimin-
ishing. When that column is
lowered to the level of the Gulf,
salt water will flow into the
fresh water aquifer. In fact,
measurements taken in late


increases some, but the overall
increase in spending has been
in the double-digit zone for the
past three years.
My bet is that your paycheck
or Social Security payment has
not been experiencing double-
digit increases. And while the
stock market has shown good
growth, most fixed investments
have not risen much from
about 5 percent
So the bottom line is that
local government has made it
more expensive to live here.
And if you combine that with
hurricanes, insurance, gas

seemed to be one of bewilder-
ment; bewilderment as to why
throngs of people didn't come
out to pay last respects to a
local soldier who made the


2005 and 2006 indicate that this
already may have begun.
Five hundred acres of
aquifer have already been
exposed. The Inglis Cemex
mine uncovered 20 additional
acres last year. Evaporation
stands now at 1.75 million gal-
lons per day, a quarter of a mil-
lion gallons more than th*
combined water use permits
for Crystal River, Inglis and
Yankeetown, and it is growing
with each dragline bucketful.
Digging continues day and
night, and yet no one in govern-
ment has dared suggest that
what they are doing is not in
the public interest and must be

In the face of this avoidable,
encroaching disaster, we are

Department of Environmental
Protection as the defender o0
our environment, to heed the
advice of The Southwest
Florida Water Management
District to conserve, to plant'

Price gouging shows swing in market


I was unable to get a good
definition of price gouging
from the dictionary, but I
think it refers to charging a
higher price for something
than what it is worth or what it
usually sells for.
OK, but how do I determine
what something is worth? A
beer may be worth $2 to me on
one occasion and $5 on anoth-
er, depending on how thirsty I
am and whether I am in a
supermarket or a fancy club.
How would I determine the
price beer usually sells for
without describing the circum-
stances surrounding its sale?
Obviously, I can't
The best way to determine
what any product is worth at
any period in time is to see
what a willing buyer will pay


for it For example,
one ticket for the
Masters golf tourna-
ment in Augusta, Ga.,
costs $175 from the
sponsors, but can be
sold on the open mar-
ket for 10 times that i.
amount. So, is the
ticket worth $175 or
$2,000? Is the seller Willia
price gouging? GU
If a local homeown-
er sold his house in COL
the recent boom for
$400,000 when it would usually
sell for $200,000, would he be
considered a price gouger?
Probably not.
Perhaps price gouging is
only to be applied to the sale of
vital necessities like food, gaso-
line, shelter and medicine.

After hurricane
Katrina devastated
South Florida and
overwhelmed
FEMAs capacity to
supply assistance,
an army of country
boys in pickup
trucks poured out
of Georgia and
m Dixon North Carolina
EST bringing water, ice,
lumber and tarps.
IJMN They may have
been good-hearted
folk, but it was the possibility of
making exorbitant profits on
the goods they sold that moti-
vated them to make the trip
and make those needed goods
available.
Immediately the price goug-
ing cry went up from home-


owners. Our wise legislators
decried the high prices and
threatened fines and jail for
the heartless perps who
brought the lumber and tarps.
Sure enough, the pickup trucks
quit coming and no one was
able to buy supplies at any
price.
For lack of lumber and tarps
and supplies, many a home sus-
tained additional damages
from exposure to the weather.
But we sure showed those
gougers that profiteering on
that scale will not be tolerated
in Florida!
My point is that laws punish-
ing suppliers for charging high-
er prices for vital necessities
when they are in short supply
in the aftermath of a storm ben-
efits no one. Those who could


not or would not pay the higher
prices get no supplies either
way. Those who thought the
supplies worth the higher
prices are deprived of the
opportunity to buy the supplies
they wanted. Would-be sellers
are deprived of a profit
Had we in Florida let the
market work, we would have
had more pickup trucks carry-
ing supplies than we had room
to park. And competition
would have quickly driven the
prices down to what most
would be willing to pay
This past week, the U.S.
House of Representatives
passed a bill punishing owners
of gas stations for raising their
prices excessively, threatening
them with prison time! What
that means is that if storms cut


our gasoline supplies again;a
you will not have to pay an
excessive price for gasoline.
But you will not be able to buy
what you need anywhere.
Time and again, I have to
wonder whether politicians
ignore economics or whether
only those ignorant of econon�-
ics stand for elected office. "

Enjoying an evening




out with the dogs


BY K.C. NAYFIELD
Guest column

Recently, there have been
some pretty harsh comments
about the Crystal River Doggie
Dining ordinance published in
the newspaper. As usual, the
detractors are speaking out
before they have a complete
understanding of the topic.
Please allow me to enlighten
you dissenters with the facts.
Dogs will not be allowed
inside restaurants under the
ordinance. Dogs will be
allowed only in outside areas,
not inside.
Restaurants with outside
dining facilities will not have
to admit dogs to these areas.
This is an "opt in" ordinance.
Any restaurant that legally
wants to allow Doggie Dining
has to apply for a permit
through the city.
There are other stipulations.
The animals must be leashed
at all times. Accidents must be
immediately cleaned and the


area disinfected. Dogs are not
allowed to contact the tables,
plates or utensils. Servers must
wash hands after touching a
dog and hand sanitizers must
be available to the public.
As a veterinarian, I realize
that there are certain people
who do not appreciate the
bond between man and dog.
Most pet dog owners consider
these animals as beloved fami-
ly members and sometimes
surrogate children. Some of us
would enjoy taking the dogs on
a boat ride, stopping at a water-
front restaurant for dinner and
drinks and then cruising out
the see the sunset Other pet
owners might enjoy walks to
the restaurants with their dogs
as company for a pleasant
afternoon. There also are trav-
elers staying in dog friendly
hotels that may prefer to have
their pets accompany them to
dinner instead of being locked
up in a room.
There is at least one local
restaurant that has expressed


an interest in applying for a per-
mit Others may soon follow,
since it has been reported that
business increases in those
restaurants with Doggie Dining.
My personal conversations
with restaurant owners in
other cities with Doggie Dining
have been overwhelmingly
positive. There have been very
few problems. Dogs have not
overrun the premises. As one
restaurant manager put it,
"The dogs are better behaved
than most of the people."
Far too many laws are restric-
tive. This one allows a restau-
rant owner the option to choose
what they prefer to do. I sincere-
ly hope the county commission
and the Inverness City Council
will adopt similar ordinances.
Isn't it about time we put a
little more "freedom" in the
free enterprise system?

Speak up in court
I was very glad to see that
the judge the other day send
somebody out and tell them to
go get some proper clothes. I
think that they should respect
the judge in his robe for the
position he's in and come into
court properly dressed. And I
don't think women should
come in carrying a baby, think-
ing they're going to get a better
break, either. I think somebody
else should take care of the
baby while they go in there. I
don't think that should be
allowed, either. And I would like
to see, if possible, a speaker
where the prosecutors speak,
because when the women get
up and speak, several people
I've talked to, we can't hear
what they're saying. You know,
you can hear the mic but
there's no mic on the desk
where they talk. I'd like to see a
mic there so that we could
hear what they're saying
because we miss half of what
they're being prosecuted for ...
We really enjoy the court. We
wish it was for an hour.
Weeds in sidewalk
I'm concerned about the new
highway that they put in on
(U.S.) 41. I travel it quite often
from Floral City to Inverness
and I'm really shocked at the
upkeep that they are not doing.


OFF-


The middle island is not
mowed and grass - or weeds,
I should say - are growing up
on the sidewalk all the way
down on both sides. Why put a
sidewalk in that you're going to
have weeds growing out of?
This is ridiculous. I think that
maybe the county commission-
ers or something should take a
look at this and make sure that
it's getting mowed and taken
care of properly, because it
certainly does not look nice. I
mean Florida is a beautiful
state and we're not doing any-
thing to improve it by letting
things go like this. So let's get
on the ball there and do some
good here and make Florida
beautiful again.
Outsourced aliens
I just wonder, since Dick
Cheney has moved all of
Halliburton to India, is he now
an illegal alien or just the peo-
ple that are operating the com-
pany in India?
Vote is crucial
On June 26, are you going to
let a handful of people decide
your fate or are you going to
get off your butt and vote? It's
important.
Where are parents?
I was just reading about the
article, this "Gazebo hangout,"
with all the kids hanging out.


Must be the same kids that are
hanging out in front of
McDonald's and the Movie
Gallery...There's 10 or 12 kids,
10, 15 kids hanging out, riding
skateboards, running into peo-
ple. I mean they scare me....Do
the parents know where the
kids are? I don't think the par-
ents even care. They don't even
care where their kids are. I see
them hanging out there at 8 in
the morning. I think it's very
sad.
Happy story
It was so good on
Wednesday morning to read
something really happy in the
paper, "Mom wins chat with
celebrity for daughters." I wish
every day I could open the
paper and see a happy event
here in Citrus County. (It
would) be wonderful. Please,
please make more happy
things happen. The paper has
so many sad things in it.
Thank you, thank you, Chronicle.
Pricey landscaping
Give me a break -
$570,000 for a half of mile of
median landscaping on
(County Road) 486? Who on
earth in county planning came
up with this waste of taxpay-
ers' money? FDOT gets
$77,000 back, but this is
county money down the
drain...

bers of the Spokane
Ministerial Association in 1909
to enlist their aid in pushing
for the holiday
The association quickly
agreed, and decided the day
would be in June, when Dodd's
father was born.
The plaque, on a grassy strip
next to the falls of the Spokane
River, was largely ignored by
people walking near it on a
recent sunny day.
And Dodd's home, a
Craftsman bungalow where
she lived with her husband
and son, also still stands, but is
a private residence.
Dodd was honored for her

* The first Father's Day cel-
ebration was held on June 19,
1910, in Spokane. Young men
from the YMCA wore roses to
church, with a red rose honor-
ing a living father and a white
rose a deceased one. Dodd
rode through town in a horse-
drawn carriage and distrib-
uted gifts to shut-in fathers.
* In 1916, President
Woodrow Wilson came to
Spokane to speak at Father's
Day services. But Congress,
fearing commercialization,

From the Democratic side it
is somewhat surprising how
well Barack Obama has done

with Hillary Clinton. The Iraq

it remains to be seen if Obama
can keep up the momentum he
presently has.
Finally, it appears that John
McCain has gone back to his
roots and has decided that "Mr
Nice Guy" is no more. He has
articulated his positions well
even though his positions on
Iraq and Immigration are diffi-
cult to sell to many in the
Republican Party.

* President Lyndon
Johnson issued the first presi-
dential proclamation honor-
ing fathers in 1966, and desig-
nated the third Sunday in
June as Father's Day In 1972,
President Nixon signed the
law that made it permanent.
Today, more than 30 countries
reserve a special day each
year for fathers.
* Mother's Day, first
observed in 1908, won a much
quicker acceptance; Congress
designated the second Sunday
in May as Mother's Day in
1914. Maybe that's because-
there are more mothers, 80
million, than fathers, 64 mil-
lion, in the U.S., according to
the Census Bureau.
* People tend to spend
more on mom: The National
Retail Federation estimated
that sales on Father's Day
items will total $9.9 billion this
year, compared to $15.7 billion
for Mother's Day items. The
average spending on gifts for
mom is $139.14, compared to
$98.34 for dad, the federation
said.
* After greeting cards, the
most popular gifts for dads are
clothing, gift cards and books
or CDs. Flowers and gift cards
top the list for mom.

Hands off Paris
"One must not ever forget

disgrace; not because they

Appeasement then ...
During the recent Balkan
war, President Bill Clinton
ordered our air power to
strike Serbian forces in
Kosovo, the sacred province of
the Serbian nation. The 1390s
Turkish invasion of Kosovo
resulted in hundreds of thou-
sands of Serbs being slain by
the Moslem marauders. The
Moslem Albanians moved in
and occupied the land. Now
they are the majority demand-
ing independence.
While President Bush
stopped the other day in
Albania he promised that soon
Kosovo will belong to the
Moslem usurpers. Have either
of our presidents learned any-
thing from history?
I painfully remember the
similar scenario when in
September 1938
Czechoslovakia was betrayed
by the British and the French
to appease Hitler The false
hue by the ethnic Germans,
the Sudets, who claimed
oppression while living in our
borderlands was the cause.
This deception was orchestrat-
ed by Hitler's bloody hench-
man S.S. Security leader
Reinhard Heydrich, who also
staged the Polish Incident,
sending Nazi armies into
Poland.


On Aug. 1, 1942, 177 B-24D
U.S. Army Air Corps bombers

at Ploesti in Rumania. Fifty-
four bombers and their crews
were lost Some managed to
fly their crippled aircraft to

tected our men, the Croats and

Much to my dismay, I once
again found my mailbox
destroyed this morning. On
checking the entire street, I
counted another 18 boxes
damaged to various degrees
and sadly, this has become
commonplace.
Those who are entertaining
themselves redundantly during
the darkened hours by vandal-
izing property belonging to
unknowns, beware. Your luck
of escape will not last forever
and, when you are arrested,
there will be many victims who
will gladly bring charges to see
that you are justly punished.
If you are intelligent enough
to think at least vaguely, per-
haps you'll evaluate your crim-
inal behavior before this asi-
nine rampage against innocent
neighbors decides your fate
and marks you permanently.


How were these young men
raised? Obviously, they have
no respect for anyone, mostly
themselves, and feel they must
hurt others to feel good and
find pleasure. What a shame
and shame on the parents who
failed to teach their kids
honor, responsibility and a
sense of decency!
Our prisons are overcrowd-
ed but these delinquent mis-
fits are destined to become
members of the elite crowd
behind bars... and, they
deserve it

Poor decisions
Your Sunday Editorial
refers to County Administrator
June Fisher's lack of leader-
ship. You left off one more
work "ability." In tracking the
saga of the Tom Dick firing, it
shows that Fisher lacks the
ability to make sound adminis-
trative decisions for which she
is being paid a handsome
salary
Let's look again at what has
happened to date: She fired a
long-term county employee for
violating the state's Sunshine
Law, though she was told by a
state attorney that this did not
happen. Fisher bulled ahead
with the bogus charge that the
Assistant County
Commissioner (Dick,) her
deputy, whom she appointed
'Acting County Administrator"
in her stead, violated the "let-
ter and intent" of the law.
Fisher should have set


things straight in a private
meeting with Dick in which
she could have issued a writ-
ten reprimand to be included
in Dick's personnel file and let
it go at that.
Now she has embroiled the
county in a legal battle that
will cost thousands of dollars
and, more than likely, the
county will end up paying
Dick damages and reinstating
him to his former position ... if
he would want it back
The question is: Should
Fisher be reprimanded or pos-
sibly fired for what she has
done? Also, how about County
Attorney Robert Battista who
backed her misdeeds? Should
he be dumped?
The county owes Tom Dick
an apology and he should be
reinstated, post haste. He tried
to save the taxpayers, potential-
ly, thousands of dollars and was
rewarded with a termination.

Marvelous mind
To Marilyn Day: You have
much too marvelous a mind to
be distracted by a few fleas.
You have nothing to say that
they are capable of learning.
Unfortunately, the executive
branch of our federal system
is saturated with just such
mental mediocrity as you have
encountered in print here, and
with such global prominence,
could we really expect silence
from the local "frog and fire-
cracker" brigade?

rStrngs, s .-w -- of numbers confuse -r - -.ader, computer
Strings of numbers confuse readers computer


ROB PEGORARO
The Washington Post


Q: Some of the spam I get doesn't
seem to advertise anything at all - it's
just meaningless strings of letters.
What's the point of that?
A Junk e-mail is annoying enough
when it's aimed at people gullible
enough to fall for its fraudulent pitch-
es. But now we have spam that may be
written only to confuse other comput-
ers.
These strings of gibberish can be an
attempt to jam spam-blocking soft-
ware, said two people who work in the


Help FILE


field. Miles Libbey, who directs
Yahoo's anti-spam efforts, and Adam
Swidler, a product manager for the e-
mail-security firm Postini, both sug-
gested that these nonsense e-mails are
written to confuse spam filters that
look for patterns of language distinct
to either spam or legitimate messages.
When one of these e-mails arrives,
the filter essentially gets clogged by
all the garbage text. It loses its grasp
of what to look for in future messages;
as a result, the next round of spam


can have an easier time sneaking
through.
Libbey also suggested that some of
these messages could be sent by
"bots" - computers hijacked by virus-
es to relay spam - that fail to include
the intended pitch of a message.
Swidler, however, disagreed with that
interpretation: "The spammer com-
munity has gotten pretty sophisticat-
ed" in its use of bots, he said.
If you do get one of these messages
and you use a mail program or Web-


mail site that lets you mark messages
as spam or safe, tag the gibberish e-
mail as junk; eventually, your filters
may catch up.
Whatever you do, don't reply to
these or any other junk messages,
even just to curse out the worthless
cretins responsible for them. Doing so
only tells spammers that you read
spam.
And, of course, keep your computer
safe from viruses, worms, spyware and
other intrusions. An attack that turns
your PC into a spam-relaying bot isn't
your misery alone; it's everybody's
problem.

they do not accept printed
coupons.
I recently had a conversation
with a coupon industry
spokesperson on this topic and
he suggested a very practical
approach to take with this
issue. Matthew Tilley of
Couponinfonow.com told me
that most stores have national
corporate policies that state
they do accept legitimate print-
ed grocery coupons that meet
stated requirements. However,
some of their stores may still
refuse to accept these legiti-
mate coupons. Most likely,
store personnel may not be
sure how to tell whether a
printed coupon is counterfeit


or not, so they refuse to accept
any home-printed coupons at
all.
Understandably, stores have
concerns about the potential
risk of accepting counterfeit
grocery coupons.
In 2003, some shoppers
redeemed several counterfeit
coupons at stores before stores
realized they were counterfeit,
costing the stores thousands of
dollars. However, the legiti-
mate printable coupon Web
sites now have security meas-
ures in place to help prevent
potential abuse or fraud.
What should you do if your
store won't accept your printed
coupons? Tilley suggests that


shoppers write or e-mail the
customer service contacts for
their stores, which are easily
found on the stores' Web sites.
Ask for a written statement of
the stores' printable coupon
policy. Assuming it is positive,
print that statement and show
it to your stores' managers to
reinforce their own companies'
policies.
I took Tilley's advice and e-
mailed Wal-Mart headquarters
since I frequently hear from
site users that Wal-Mart will
not accept their printed gro-
cery coupons. I was pleased to
receive this positive response.

at risk?
DEAR BRUCE: I just
discovered- my year-
end mortgage state-
ment for tax purposes never
arrived. I called the mortgage
company, and they said the
statement was mailed out but
they would mail me another. I
got it yesterday and noticed
both my Social Security num-
ber and my husband's were
listed. I am now in a panic
because the original is floating
out there somewhere. I am
well aware of the fact that it is
very easy to obtain someone's
Social Security number with-
out too much trouble. What
should I do? In the past, when
I've tried to get my credit
report online, I was unable to
do so. Can you advise how to
get the report? What should I
do about this problem? -MA,
via e-mail
DEAR MA: I really think
you are working up a sweat for
no reason. The fact is that
Social Security numbers are
very easy to come by, and the
strong likelihood is that the
first statement just disap-
peared into that undelivered
mailroom. Beyond that, I don't
understand why you shouldn't
be able to get your credit
report online. There are a
number of companies that will
deliver it for a fee.
Alternatively, you can write to
the credit-reporting compa-
nies and request a copy of your
report, and you may do so once
a year with no fee involved. If
you want to know what's hap-
pening immediately, you can
go online and get it done
instantly. Please don't worry.
DEAR BRUCE: I'm 48, sin-
gle, gainfully employed by a
terrific company for 18-plus
years. I have no plans of ever
leaving this company. My
annual salary is $110,000. I
have company stock options
and a pretty healthy 401(k) and
individual retirement pack-
age. I contribute 12 percent of
my salary to my company's
program, and they match 6
percent I have two homes. The
primary residence is valued at
$225,000, with a mortgage bal-
ance of $40,000. A second vaca-
tion home is valued at
$300,000, with a mortgage of
$90,000. No children, no
dependents. A salesman wants
me to purchase one of two
insurance plans: coverage of
up to $150 per day for an annu-
al premium of $2,237.43 or cov-
erage of up to $120 per day for
an annual premium of
$1,023.50. -J.M., via e-mail
DEAR J.M: Looks like to me
you are in fat city. You're 48,
making a very good salary, you
have good habits and a sub-
stantial savings. I wouldn't rec-
ommend long-term-care insur-
ance for a healthy person at
all. Some years down the line,
maybe, yes. In your case, you
haven't indicated your concern
about leaving a big estate. At
your present rate of earnings,
you will be able to pay for any
long-term care you may need. I
think it would be great for the
salesman but not in your best
interest In 15 years, I might
give you a different answer.
DEAR BRUCE: My mother
died with a will, and it went to
probate. She had three sons,
and each was to get a share.
One was to get the car, one the
trailer, one the savings. The
savings has a paper trail.
Before her death, she changed
executors from oldest son to

Dunnellon shop

Tara Lees-Groot of Citrus
Springs is pleased to announce the
relocation of her business and a
merger with "The Pet Bark'tique."
"Tara's," a fashion and home d6cor
gift shop has moved to 20625 W.
Pennsylvania Ave. in Dunnellon
(across from the firehouse). Mrs.
Lees-Groot initially rented space in
an antique shop. The success of
her small business encouraged
her to open her own shop. After
two years in the Walnut Street
location an opportunity arose to
expand her growing business and
partner with Kathleen Wallace,
owner of "The Pet Bark'tique." The
combination of stores allows
"Tara's" to offer a wide selection of
gifts, home decor, and fashions for
both you and your pet.

Movie toys risk consumer fatigue


LORENZA MUNOZ
Los Angeles Times

HOLLYWOOD - As movie studios
battle at the box office with their sum-
mer blockbusters, toy manufacturers
that have hooked their fortunes to these
films are facing a similar fight as they
vie for the attention of young boys.
Yet, with nine movies offering toy-
related items for sale during the three-
month summer window, consumers
could suffer from a form of attention
deficit disorder.
"It has become so crowded that kids
don't have the time to let that emotion
(for the movie) percolate," said Martin
Brochstein, executive editor of the
Licensing Letter, a monthly newsletter
that tracks toy licensing. "The retailers
are not looking to keep things on the
shelf for as long. It's become a business
of caution."
Toy industry analysts expect this year
to be strong in action figure sales
because of the number of summer
movies featuring swashbuckling heroes
or crime fighting characters including
"Spider-Man 3," "Pirates of the
Caribbean: At World's End" and
"Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver
Surfer." The biggest seller of the season,
however, could be Transformers, the


popular toy series that will be brought
to life by Michael Bay's upcoming action
film. "Transformers," which features
the heroic robot Optimus Prime and the
villainous Megatron, will be released
July 4 by Paramount Pictures. The toys
have been out since early June.
Sheliah Gilliland of the Internet toy
retailer EToys.com is betting on
Transformers.
"Transformers will be the biggest sell-
er -: it's a movie based on a line of toys
that has been popular since the
(19)'80s," she said. "They have always
been strong sellers but, because of the
movie, they are coming back in a huge
way."
Although last year's box office atten-
dance was up by about 5 percent, action
figure sales fell by 9 percent in 2006,
generating close to $1.25 billion of the
$22.6 billion in overall toy revenue,
according to NPD Group, a consumer
and retail information company. Action
figure sales fell partly because of a
robust 2005, which benefited from the
release of "Star Wars: Episode III
Revenge of the Sith" and its related
toys.
Toys can increase a franchise's popu-
larity and, in turn spur excitement for
the next installment of a movie.
"Toys are an extremely important cat-


egory for the 'Pirates of the Caribbean'
franchise given the natural pirates play
pattern for boys," said Eva Steortz, vice
president of Boys/Film Franchises, for
Walt Disney Co., which distributed the
movie. "Unique ships and action figures
represent the three-dimensional way
kids bring all of our characters like Jack
Sparrow and Davy Jones into their lives
to reimagine what they have seen in the
films."
The studios license the rights to toy
manufacturers and also receive royal-
ties of 7 percent to 15 percent of the
sales, said Chris Byrne, an independent
toy analyst and contributing editor of
Toy Wishes Magazine.
With so many sequels, toy manufac-
turers (, as well as the studios) must up
the ante to outdo the previous offering.
For instance, Zizzle, the manufactur-
er behind Disney's "Pirates" toys, has
stressed technological advances such as
Jack Sparrow's battery-operated
"Sensor Sword and Magic Ring," which
recognizes the sword-bearer if he is
wearing the ring and gives directions on
how to fend off enemies.
The "Spider-Man 3" blaster, manufac-
tured by Hasbro Inc., shoots out spirals
of webs made of goo - instead of squirt-.
ing straight shots of the stuff like last
year


Look on the bright side and give thanks online


JOANN KLIMKIEWICZ
The Hartford Courant

Why wait until Thanksgiving
to count our blessings?
That's the question asked by
the good people of the "good
news" Web site Gimundo.com,
kindly nudging folks to check
their day's grumbling at the
cyber door and consider,
instead, logging their day's
thanks on a newly launched
Journal of Gratitude.
They'd be especially thankful
if you could help them amass
one million expressions of grat-
itude by Thanksgiving 2007.
"If you've watched the news
lately, you know that not every-
thing is happy. Not everything is
great," says Keith Cohn,
Gimundo's founder and CEO.
"But at the same time, it's good
- to be alive, quite frankly, and we
Shave a lot to be grateful for
!every day."
Cohn is betting that gratitude
is contagious. A daily pause to
reflect on the richness of life, he
says, is an important exercise

not just for the individual. It
may also help to inspire.
Read, for example, in grati-
tude entry No. 99 that Rory G. is
thankful for "my son's recovery
from cancer."
Or that, in No.
3, Chris C. ON TI
finds gratitude on to
in "the sound Log on to
of my kids www. gimu
a u h ing upig ne
before I even
open my eyes in the morning."
And it kind of makes you
think, doesn't it?
Turns out that Gimundo has
science and research on its
side with this whole gratitude
thing. (Not to mention a long
list of the world's great philoso-
phers - the Dalai Lama,
Cicero and Nietzsche among
them.)
People who practice grati-
tude are generally happier and
healthier, according to a study
on the effects of thankfulness by
Robert A. Emmons of the
University of California and
Michael E. McCullough of the


I

n
W


University of Miami. One study
showed that people who kept
weekly gratitude journals
reported fewer physical symp-
toms, felt better about their
lives and were
more opti-
E NET mistic about
the coming
. week than
do.com for those who
/vS. chronicled
"hassles or
neutral life events."
Cohn says gratitude and
Gimundo are not about keeping
a Pollyanna-esque outlook at all
times. "Look, I get it. It's a tough
world out there," he says. "But
we need to find the good out
there to keep us going every
day."
That's the thinking that
launched the online "good news
supplement" earlier this year.
The site offers uplifting stories
written by local correspondents
and culled from the day's news.
Recent headlines: "Washington
Teen is Second Girl Ever to Win
Geography Bee" and "More U.S.

Households are Going Smoke-
Free."
Cohn says he doesn't advo-
cate folks shielding themselves
from the harsher realities of
war or corruption that are reg-
ularly reported in the news.
"What we're trying to do is
offer a respite, just for people
to take a deep breath and cele-
brate the positive."
And the positives, as
Gimundo's growing list of the
grateful shows, don't always
have to be precious or profound.
"I am thankful for the Boston
Red Sox," writes Dave E. in
entry No. 5, "because they give
me someone to root against"
In entry No. 117, Sara S.
makes us ponder the glories of
sunshine, tanning lotion and
"fanny-packs, because they are
both stylish and convenient."
And Laura S.?
"I am thankful for the sun, the
ocean and good red wine," she
writes in entry 20. "Oh, and my
Visa card."

This is the exact e-mail I
received from Wal-Mart's cus-
tomer service department
answering the question I
posed, "What is your policy
regarding the acceptance of
coupons printed from a home
computer?"
"Wal-Mart Stores can accept
coupons that are available on
the Internet for customers to
print from their home comput-
ers. The following are guide-
lines for the stores for accept-
ing Internet coupons:
* The coupon should be leg-
ible and say 'Manufacturer
Coupon.' There should be a
valid remit address for the
manufacturer, to ensure the
coupon can be processed for
payment
* The coupon should have a
scan-able bar code.
* The coupon should have
an expiration date.
* The coupon cannot be a
photocopy
* The limit is one coupon
per item, per customer.
* A salaried manager can
refuse to accept a coupon if it


MONEY

the middle son held the savings
account, and his lawyer
claimed he was entitled to the
savings because it was in her
name and his. Oldest son never
got what the will stated, the sav-
ings. Is there any hope of the
oldest son getting what he was
supposed to? - P.P., via e-mail
DEAR P.P.: Your mother had
a will that was filed with the
probate court. There's an
executor who is responsible to
the probate court, and, in this
case, it is the middle son. He is
legally required to do what the
will calls for. You, in turn, have
every right to go to the "probate
clerk" and ask that he check if
the will is being properly fol-
lowed. That is his job. He is the
stand-in for the person who
died. I can't sort out what your
brother has been doing, but
your friend in the court is the
clerk of the probate court By all
means, make an appointment
and go see him.
DEAR BRUCE: Through a
403(b) plan, I had mutual funds
with a balance totaling $51,000.
I am 47 years old and plan to
retire at 55. A financial planner
advised me to switch this
money to a variable annuity. I
asked few questions mostly
because many people I respect
have planned their retirements
with this man's assistance. I
have been reading more and
more about variable annuities,
and I am terrified I've made a
HUGE mistake that I cannot
correct I,will have a great pen-
sion, but if I am blessed with
good health, I will be retired for
many years. Am I stuck with a
poor investment that will not be
good for my retirement? -MlVG.,
via e-mail
DEAR M.G.: Why - other
than the fact that a variable
annuity can be a very good com-
mission generator - your
adviser would advise you to
take money out of a sheltered
fund where your investments
can be moved without penalty
is difficult for me to under-
stand. I have not been a fan of
annuities for most people, and I
believe that would include peo-
ple of your circumstance.
That said, at your age, you
could keep it where it is -
where it's likely to perform rea-
sonably well - and satisfy the
time requirements. One of the
main problems with annuities
is, if you need the money early
(less than seven years), there
are severe penalties. Leave it
where it is until the penalty
periods have passed. But unless
this guy can give you some
incredibly good reasons why
your particular situation would
benefit from the annuity, I
would be looking for another
adviser
DEAR BRUCE: My ex-hus-
band was involved in a severe
car accident in 1999, leaving
him in a coma. I had two minor
children at the time. He had a
business, savings and a house
he had just built I fought in
court for the house. They want-
ed it sold, and the proceeds to
go for my ex's care. What they
did was put the house in an
irrevocable trust, where, when
my youngest child turns 25, the
house will be sold and the pro-
ceeds divided between my chil-
dren. I had gotten ill and gone
on dialysis and could not keep
up with the taxes. The house
was sold, and the money has
gone into the trust with a court-
appointed trustee.
Is it possible to have a trustee
removed and replaced?
According to the trust, my chil-


does not meet any or all 6of
these guidelines." A

sites such as coolsavings.com,
e v e r s a v e . com ,o
smartSource.com, boodle.coml
and coupons.com all meet
these requirements, shoppers
should feel confident
approaching their Wal-Mart
store manager with theli
coupons and this column ifU
hand. To make it easiest for the
store manager to see that the.
coupons are from legitimate
Web sites, do not cut the-
coupon out from the piece -6
paper it prints on. Keep the
entire page intact so the man-
ager can see the Web site"
address at the top or bottom of
the page. Good luck!

The trustee doesn't return their||
calls, and we have no idea
where the money is. Is it invest-

dren are now 19 and 24. My sis-
ter has the credentials to do the
job. She would put my chili

plus 5 percent of the overall. My|
sister would make sure that,
when my youngest son turned
25, the two of them would have

DEAR S.N.: Since your chl

they clearly have a right to th
information from the trustee.
Since they can document thai
the trustee doesn't return calls

requests for withdrawal, the
have every right to petition th
court to replace the trustee.
Whether your sister would b
appointed is another matter. B
all means, I would advise the
to seek the services of an attor
ney to petition to have th
trustee replaced. This perso
may have a good reason not to
return calls (I don't know wha
that might be), and the mone
might be doing very well. Bui
with the absence of the appro
private communication, I would.
still want another person hani

n't bring ourselves to take good articles to the trash bin! Those days have passed but we still think the same way and know there is
a lot of you in Citrus County of like mind. Peddler's Post is YOUR arena to find bargains, give bargains and recycle great merchandise.

A stain treatment worth its salt


It was a lovely meal. The conversa-
tion was engaging, the entree
delightful and a good time was had
by all. The guests are long gone, and i
now you're stuck with an ugly red-winei I
stain on your prized tablecloth. Is this
linen destined for the ragbag? Not if
you know this simple solution.
* RED-WINE STAINS: If you get red
wine on a washable tablecloth or nap-
kin, spread the stained portion over a Mary
bowl and sprinkle salt on top of the EVER
stain. Then pour boiling water over the CHEAF
salt and through the cloth to take out
the stain. - Josie M., Texas
* CLEAN GROUT: I use a battery-powered
toothbrush to brush my teeth. After a few months,
instead of throwing the toothbrush head away, I
use it to remove the stains from my tile counters.
After using a sponge to wet down the grout, I sprin-
kle a little cleanser over the grout, let it sit for a
few minutes and then let the spinning, vibrating
toothbrush clean all the little nooks and crannies.
It requires very little elbow grease. Then I just
rinse off the counter and admire the white grout
again. - Sheila C., California
* CAKE DECORATIONS: My favorite way to
quickly decorate a frosted cake is to take a cookie
cutter, place it on top of the frosting and pour
sprinkles inside the cookie cutter When you lift
the cutter off, you will have a perfect sprinkle
design. - Nancy G., Iowa
* FLEA SOAP: Original blue Dawn dishwashing
liquid is good for getting rid of fleas on pets. Soap


r
fm


-;. up your pet and let sit about five min-
utes, then rinse. This works really well
on young pets that aren't old enough for
flea products. - Karen K., e-mail
E KIDS PALETTE: When your kids
'-' f want to do some painting, squeeze the
different color paints into a Styrofoam
Segg carton to keep them separate. The
lid of the carton is perfect for mixing
colors. - Heather Q., Tennessee
Hunt U SHAMPOO BAG: If you are going
YDAY on a short trip or an overnight stay, it
'SKATE can be a pain to pack your large bottles
of shampoo and conditioner. Just put a
small amount of each into plastic zipper-type bags.
That way you will be carrying only what you will
use, and you can toss the bag when you return. -
Tom Y, e-mail
* TOO MUCH SOAP: If you ever put too much
soap into your washer and it begins to overflow,
just throw in a capful of fabric softener, and the
suds will start to go down. - Beatrice R., Michigan
* WRINKLED CLOTHES: When I'm traveling, I
often open my suitcase to find all my clothes are
wrinkled, no matter how carefully I have packed
them. A quick way to get rid of the wrinkles is to
lightly dampen the piece of clothing with water
and then use a blow-dryer to get it dry again.
Provided the garment wasn't too wrinkled in the
first place, this should do the trick. - Vicki A.,
New York

ing information about "One
Man's Family" brought back
memories for me. Growing up
in North Dakota it was one of
my mother's favorite radio pro-
grams. Your letter writer can
find more information and pur-
chase CDs or old broadcasts by
Googling the name. The pro-
gram started in 1932 and
chronicled family life of the
Barbours in the San Francisco
Bay area. Henry Barbour was a
banker. Other historical infor-
mation can be found on the
Web site. Hope this helps the


writer to find the information
she sought - H.D., Internet
Dear H.D.: I am glad you took
the time to share your
Remember When about "One
Man's Family." Thank you for
the added information.
Dear John: I have the follow-
ing items and am curious if
there is any market for them. I
read your articles every
Sunday in the Chronicle and
they have raised my curiosity
relative to these articles which
were owned by my parents.
The articles are: Pages of


sheet music from the 1920s and
1930s and a music stand with
three pronged base. It has a
steel shaft and wooden frame
and two alligator clips to hold
the sheet music. Dad had them
in the 1920's. Thank you for
whatever assistance you may
be able to render - M.G.,
Beverly Hills
Dear M.G.: Sheet music is a
category of specific collector
interest. I suggest you contact
the specialty auction company

You know it's wedding sea-
son when the invitations pile
up in your mailbox faster than
you can return the RSVPs. Who
doesn't love a wedding? (OK, I
see those hands, but you are
clearly in the minority.) The
challenge is buying gifts for
your betrothed friends and rel-
atives - or the kids of same -
that they'll appreciate but that
won't run up your credit cards
or make you look like a total
tightwad.
Before we get to the gifts,
let's review the etiquette. The
Emily Post Institute advises
that if you are invited to a
bridal shower and cannot
attend, all that is required is
your regrets to the hostess.
Etiquette does not require you
to send a gift. And if you are
invited to more than one show-
er for the same bride, Post says
you should not feel obligated to
attend more than one shower,
even if you are in the wedding
party.
Not so for an invitation to the
wedding. Even if you are
unable to attend, good man-
ners dictate sending a gift to
the home of the bride several
weeks before the big day if you
are close to the soon-to-be-
married.
So how can you give a great
gift without overspending?
* COUNT YOUR WAD: A
rule of life is that you do not go
into debt to buy a gift. There
are no rules, however, about

value for the music stand, I

how much you must spend on a
gift Figure out how much cash
you have to spend on this gift
and then stick to that amount
* CHECK THE REGISTRY:
These days, most couples are
registered with at least one
retailer, and usually that list is
available online. Sure, they
will know how much you spent
if you buy a gift from their reg-
istry, but so what? These are
items they have selected that
they really want They will not
be opening their gifts with a
calculator in one hand weigh-
ing the value of your gift by the
amount you spent
* GET A GROUP TOGETH-
ER: It is perfectly acceptable
for several people to pool their
resources to buy one gift.
Again, the registry is a good
place to find a gift that fits the
amount you have to spend. All


of you should sign the same
card.
* CREATE YOUR GIFT: If
you have artistic and creative
talents, making a gift for the
couple's new home is an excel-
lent idea. And smart, too.
That's one gift you know they
won't be returning. In Kip-
linger's Personal Finance mag-
azine, Cameron Huddleston
says the key to pulling off a
homemade gift is to personal-
ize it to match the bride or
groom's favorite things. If
you're not crafty, make a DVD
photo album of the couple's
shared interests. Or a scrap-
book of the great times you've
had together.
* BE LATE: It's not the best
idea, but certainly one to con-
sider if you are flat broke right

now. The Post Institute assures
us that we have up to three
months following the nuptials
to deliver a gift to the happy
couple. That means you get a
reprieve. Even if the wedding
is tomorrow, you still have at
least 90 days to save up, find a
great sale or make a gift If you
want your gift to stand out in
the crowd, having it show up
late is bound to do just that
mom
The world changed in 1950
when Frank McNamara invent-
ed the first multi-use credit
card, Diner's Club charge card.
Seven years later, at the age of
40, McNamara died having
seen his invention expand to
nearly 500,000 Diner's Club
cardholders. I'm sure even
McNamara would be shocked
if he knew where this thing has
gone in the 50 years since he
checked out.
* BUY A HOUSE: At least
one condominium develop-
ment in New York, N.Y., not
only accepted but encouraged
buyers to put their down pay-
ments of $120,000 or more on
their credit cards. Sure, the
reason was to get the miles and
member rewards. But I.just
wonder how many of those bal-
ances are still rolling from one
month to the next. Frankly, it
scares me to death.
* BUY A COKE: If a $120,000
down payment is at one
extreme, then surely $1.50 is at
the other. Yep, you guessed it
Coca-Cola is rolling out vend-
ing machines that accept cred-
it cards. Why would it do this?
Because it knows its sales will
jump by at least 30 percent
overnight People spend that
much more when they don't
have to scrounge for a couple
of bucks. Crazy, just plain
crazy!
* GET OUT OF JAIL: I am
not talking about buying a
game of Monopoly with a cred-
it card. I mean really getting
out of jail - paying for a bail
bond with a credit card. Can
you believe it? It's bad enough
to land in jail, but to pay on a
bail bond for the next decade
or longer? That is just plain
weird but certainly possible
these days.
* PAY FOR COLLEGE: I
have to say any student foolish
enough to pay for his or her
tuition with a credit card needs
to go back to math class.
Interest rates, minimum pay-
ments - come on, people! One
survey discovered 23 percent
of the sTuffuetuTsedT credit^


cards to pay for tuition and
books. I dare say that wasn't a
convenience action to earn
miles. I see "debt" written all
over such a foolish move.
* GAMBLE YOUR BRAINS
OUT: During its first six
months from launch, the new


Arriva card, designed to be
used in casinos, completed
more than $15 million in cash-
advance transactions. Its sup-
posed benefits include reward
points for cash advances, a true
grace period and cash
advances of the entire credit


*Home Finder*


line, and it can be used in more
than 800 casinos. And this is
supposed to be a good thing?
I don't know where all this is
going, but I don't think I'm
going to be surprised when we
hear about some new credit
card for the purpose of paying


a person's bankruptcy fees -
so they can escape all the debt
of having abused so many other
credit cards. It's not free to file,
you know. And if you're broke,
how can you afford to go bank-

D.C. offers nationwide tour of


gardening ideas, all in one spot


ADRIAN HIGGINS
The Washington Post

WASHINGTON - Some-
times, even the pros need
inspiration. So the gardeners
at the U.S. Botanic Garden
invited a dozen other public
gardens to show off their plant-
raising talents.
There is a didactic aspect to
the Botanic Garden's major
summer-long exhibit, namely
the importance of these institu-
tions to our culture. But we
already know that, so go
instead to find some fun and
creative ideas for your own lit-
tle patio or deck.
Who knew you could hide an
ugly black plastic pond without
burying it in the ground? In the
exhibit by the Sarah P Duke
Gardens in Durham, N.C., the
pond liner has been obscured
by simple pressure-treated
pine posts.
Here's the clever bit: Each
post is notched near the top,
and the lip of the pond slips in
the notch and is secured in
place. The posts are also con-
nected by hidden wire.
The rear of the pond is
enclosed by dry-laid granite
blocks, backfilled with earth
for plantings that soften the
edge of the pond and blend
with the aquatic plants, which
included a pretty, spiraled
rush, a hardy waterlily and a

brown. Uncover and continue
cooking on low for 1 hour
longer to thicken. The finished
product will be slightly chunky.
If you want a smoother apple
butter, stir with a whisk, use an
immersion blender or puree in
a blender. Remove to sterile
containers and refrigerate or
freeze. Note: This makes a very
sweet apple butter. You can
reduce sugars to taste, but you
need at least 3 cups total sugar
to reach desired consistency

tropical one. The tropical lily
spreads far by late summer but
is kept in bounds here by being
planted in a six-inch pot
The pond occupies about 10
square feet, and while it may
be too heavy for a deck or bal-
cony, it would be a good feature
for the city garden on terra
firma.
"You can still have a beauti-
ful garden in a small area,"

Sublime succulents


Beautiful plants also

low maintenance

DEAN Fos'- ''
For The Associated Press

Tired of blossoms in your flower gar-
den that dazzle and sizzle but are
quick to fade? Maybe it's time for some
dependable succulents - the enduring
plants that last through the good times
but also, especially, the bad.
More than 10,000 plant species have
been classified as succulents, includ-
ing the extensive cacti (Cactaceae)
family Some are tall and irregularly
shaped like living sculptures; many
remain small, making good ground
covers. Scores bloom, a few resemble
rocks. But most are tough-as-nails sur-
vivors - the so-called camels of the
plant world, capable of retaining water
in their fleshy leaves, stems or roots.
There's a growing appreciation
among gardeners of plants "for their
shape and their form and their geome-
try and the elegance that comes with
that, as opposed to the 'I just want to
grow annuals' or 'Give me my petunias
or roses,' "said Debra Lee Baldwin of
Escondido, Calif., author of "Designing
With Succulents" (Timber Press, 2007).
"That's especially the case down
here in the Southwest. It's a very prac-
tical plant for our homes and gardens
because of droughts."
What defines a succulent?
Succulents sometimes are referred to
as "fat plants" because they are able to
survive arid regions by storing water
internally, hence their "fleshy" look.
Many also developed hard outer layers
or skins to minimize evaporation.
Succulents are tough not to love.
They're easy to grow and easy to main-
tain. They do well indoors or out and
can survive dry desert sands or cold
Ontario winters. Some prefer partial
shade; the majority can handle full
sun.
Common easy-care examples
include aloe (ornamentals said to have
some medicinal qualities but that also
look good in pots), sedums (many of
which flower and make good ground
covers) and the blue agave, which pro-
vides the makings for tequila.
"It has been years since I gave some-
one a house key to come in and water
my potted plants when I'm away
because I've converted all my contain-
ers to succulents," Baldwin said in an
exchange of e-mail messages.
"I just water them before I go (if I
remember) and they're fine the entire
time, even if it's midsummer, they're
on the patio and I'm gone for three


DEAN FOSDICK/Associated Press
Succulents are enduring plants - hardy in dry desert or Canada cold. These "hens
and chicks" (Sempervivum), shown in this April 13 photo, survived for decades
inside bricks placed along a sun-baked, snow-swept driveway in Minnesota before
being picked up and transferred to a Virginia rock garden. Most succulents are
tough-as-nails survivors, the so-called camels of the plant world capable of retain-
ing water in their fleshy leaves, stems or roots.


weeks."
Succulents are also among the most
accommodating plants, generally will-
ing to be placed anywhere, from rocky
slopes to the simplest of containers
(think bricks and concrete blocks).
They're versatile enough to thrive in
trendy rooftop gardens, be shaped into
topiary or serve as blaze-resistant
fences around wildfire-prone residen-
tial areas. Certain kinds of cacti,
notably the prickly pear, can act as a
barrier plant for security-conscious
gardeners who don't mind working
around their many barbed spines.
"You can also cultivate succulents
very easily once you get them started,"
Baldwin said. "They're ideal for peo-
ple with brown thumbs. They don't
require a high degree of maintenance.


In fact, they kind of resent it if you fuss
with them too much. These are not
bonsai."
Succulents propagate readily from
the smaller "pups" or from cuttings,
the latter not unlike geraniums, she
said.
"Because the cuttings are viable for
weeks, they are well suited for ship-
ping, provided they're not exposed to
freezing temperatures. So thanks to
the Internet, a wide variety of succu-
lents - which used to be a regional
specialty - now are available to peo-
ple who live anywhere in the world."
Many people who specialize in suc-
culents favor cacti, with their enter-
taining shapes and spiky skins. While
all cacti are succulents, not all succu-
lents are cacti, Baldwin writes.


ON THE NET
E For more about growing succulents
* and cacti, see this University of
Rhode Island Cooperative Extension
fact sheet: www.uri.edu ce
factsheets sheets cacti.html.

"Unlike other succulents, cacti have
areoles - points from which spines
(which are modified leaves), pads,
flowers or new branches grow. Another
important distinction is that cacti are
indigenous to the Americas."
Cacti generally prefer more light
and less water than other succulents,
Baldwin said.
Succulents grow well in soil mix-
tures containing sand, peat moss and
wood chips - coarse combinations
that drain well. Moisture-retaining
clays, for example, simply won't do.
Succulents also prefer a soil pH low in
acids, or a growing medium augment-
ed with agricultural lime. Try for a pH
somewhere between 6 and 7, she said.
Baldwin's hillside garden in north
San Diego County is slowly evolving
into a succulent-rich setting. It's within
USDA hardiness Zone 9, a decom-
posed-granite and clay setting where
temperatures dip below freezing in
winter and top out above 100 F in sum-
mer. Rainfall averages about 12 inches
a year, so water is a constant concern,
she said.
"My focus initially was flowers, but
as sophistication with design and the
look of landscape grows, you realize
it's more about foliage and not with
flowers, which come and go. You want
some contrast year-round. Hardscape.
Some structure. A large plant with
dominant foliage.
"...My garden is now at its spring
peak," she said. "I still have about 40
rose bushes and everything is bloom-
ing. The rest of the year, though, the
succulents are the most interesting
and everything else is cut back.
Succulents add interest to your garden
nine months of the year."
For a long time people had the idea
that a garden had to consist of a grassy
lawn with flowers and annuals arrayed
around it, Baldwin said. "That was the
English style of gardening - some-
thing that required a lot of love and
maintenance.
"What do you see in the Southwest
and around San Diego? You see a lot
of Eastern gardens that have been
transferred westward. But that culture
is changing. Not only is aesthetic
appreciation changing, but lifestyles
are changing, too. People don't want
high maintenance (plants) anymore."

UF DVD dispels myth that


orchids are difficult to grow


CHUCK WOODS
Special to the Chronicle

GAINESVILLE - Growing
orchids just got easier, thanks
to a new University of Florida
DVD that provides a complete
guide to producing "the
world's most beautiful flow-
ers."
The "Growing Orchids:
Easier Than You Think" DVD,
featuring two orchid experts at
UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences,
includes interviews and hands-
on demonstrations. The disk
also has information on select-
ing appropriate containers,
plant media, fertilizers, water-
ing requirements and other
tips. Total run time of the DVD
is 54 minutes, with a 21-minute
segment on easy-to-grow
orchid varieties and a 33-
minute guide for growers.
"Once just a hobby for those
with the time, money and
patience to care for exotic
plants, orchids are now the
fastest growing segment of the
nation's $13 billion floriculture
industry, and Florida's warm,
humid climate is ideal for
these flowering plants," said
Tom Sheehan, a professor
emeritus in UF's environmen-
tal horticulture department
and one of the nation's leading
orchid experts.
He said the DVD, which dis-
pels the myth that orchids are
difficult to grow, was recorded
on location at the American
Orchid Society Visitors Center
and Botanical Garden in
Delray Beach.
When a few basic cultural
requirements are met, growing
orchids in the home environ-
ment can be a rewarding expe-
rience, Sheehan said. The
species and hybrids of six
orchid genera are the most
popular because they're easy
to grow and produce beautiful
flowers: Phalaenopsis, Den-
drobium, Vanda, Cattleya,
Oncidium and Epidendrum.
When it comes to habitat,
orchids can be terrestrial, epi-
phytic (those that grow on
other plants) or lithophytic
(those that grow on rocks). The
habitat dictates the type of
growing medium to be used,
Sheehan said.
Over the past few decades,
the popularity of orchids has
increased dramatically, thanks
to: new and improved cultiva-


UF/IFAS photo

Food and Agricultural Sciences, Tom Sheehan, left, and Bob Black

Society and the American Orchid Society.


tion and propagation tech-
niques that allow commercial
growers to produce large num-
bers of plants at affordable
prices for the consumer, he
said.
No longer a luxury item,
orchids can be purchased at
prices comparable to other
potted flowering plants,
Sheehan said. With more than
25,000 identified species and
120,000 registered hybrids,
they are the largest group of
flowering plants.
While orchids are common
in the tropics, they also grow
wild under different climatic
conditions on every continent
except Antarctica. In the
United States, orchid species
are native to every state -
including Alaska where "arctic
orchids" have been identified.
"Often described as the most
beautiful flowers in the world,
orchids have a distinct and
undeniable mystique," he said.
"Beauty alone cannot explain
our fascination with these
flowers. When it comes to vari-
ety, complexity and elegance,
orchid plants are unlike any
other."
Sheehan, who appears on
the DVD with Bob Black,
another professor emeritus in
the UF environmental horti-
culture department, said
orchids - next to poinsettias -
are now the leading potted
flowering -plant -produced -in.


Florida, generating more than
$23 million in annual farm
sales.
UF orchid research dates
back to 1957 when Sheehan
began studying proper fertil-
ization methods for using bark
as an orchid growing medium.
He also began using tissue cul-
ture to multiply clonal vari-
eties and tested foliar applica-
tion of fertilizer on orchids. He
remains active in national and
international organizations
and orchid societies.
"Orchid mania" has
spawned hundreds of orchid
societies across the nation,
Sheehan said. In South Florida
alone, more than 20 societies
meet every month. The
American Orchid Society has
nearly 20,000 members world-
wide. And there are orchid
shows throughout the year,
including the world famous
Miami International Orchid
Show sponsored by the South
Florida Orchid Society.
The DVD can be purchased
for $25.00 (plus tax, shipping
and handling) from the IFAS
Extension Bookstore at
http://ifasbooks.com. For more
information, call (352) 392-1764
or (800) 226-1764.
Sheehan and Black are also
the authors of a new book,
"Orchids to Know and Grow,"
that will be released later this
year by the University of
Florida.Press.. . - . --.-

plies? Even if you were able to
gather your belongings, could
you do it quickly? All of the
items need to be in a "drive-
away" kit
Another consideration is the
design and material selection
for the home itself. Water-resist-
ant floorings like tile, with area
rugs that can be removed before
the storm can help during
restoration. Soaked carpets
increased the mold and mildew,
especially considering that
there was no power to dry them.
Even water-resistant carpeting
(and padding) became dirty and
smelly after flooding. If a carpet
survives a flood, it should be
removed for cleaning and dry-
ing and to promote drying with-
in the home. In the 1960s, many
Florida homes had tile or ter-
razzo as their flooring. Both are
less susceptible to water dam-
age and cleanup is easier In
addition, during a power outage
with no A/C, the Florida Solar
Energy Center has conducted
research that shows tile floors
feel cooler than carpet because
they are installed on monolithic
slabs which are in direct contact


with the cooler ground under-
neath. One of the researchers
estimates this free cooling is
worth up to 1/2 ton ofA/C during
summer If you are used to A/C
and have ever gone through
weeks with no A/C, you'll appre-
ciate anything that can make
you cooler!
One more design considera-
tion was how the elevated
homes fared so much better
during the flood. Check to see
where your electric panel is
located, however. Many of the
homes survived and required
only cleaning, but had to have
electric panels replaced which
were located below flood level.
I read an article by Alex
Wilson, president of
BuildingGreen, who used the
term "passive survivability,"
which allows homeowners to
maintain livable conditions in
the event of electric or water
interruptions based on the
home's design. It makes sense
to rely on passive (non-mechan-
ical) measures should loss of
power occur For example, if a
home has been well-insulated,
is situated so the long sides of
the home are facing north and
south, has overhangs, has limit-
ed windows or has windows
with a high Solar Heat Gain Co-
Efficient (.40 or lower in


Florida) on the east and west
side, etc. there will be less heat
load to remove and thus occu-
pants will feel more comfort-
able in the space. The Citrus
County Extension office pro-
vides classes about rainbarrels,
a rain harvesting device used to
capture rainwater for irriga-
tion. In an interruption of the
water supply, this water can
provide water in an emergency
to be used for flushing the toi-
let, cleaning and after boiling
or treatment, for drinking or
cooking.
Here in Citrus County, you
should be aware that you will
need a re-entry tag to be allowed
to return to your home after a
disaster. You can pick them up
at the Citrus County Sheriff's
Office in Inverness (and all sub-
stations), the Department of
Development Services in
Lecanto and the Tax Collector's
Offices in Inverness and Crystal
River. Keep them in your car's
glove compartment These tags
not only help to prevent looting,
but they also allow you to return
to your home to assess the dam-
age and protect from further
damage.
Mold begins to grow on mate-
rials that stay wet longer than
two or three days. The longer it
grows, the greater the potential


health hazard and the more dif-
ficult to control. So as soon as it
is safe to return, it is imperative
to begin the cleanup. It is criti-
cal to take photos before begin-
ning to clean to use for insur-
ance purposes if you have flood
coverage. Then start drying and
cleaning the affected areas.
More information about hur-
ricane preparedness and recov-
ery is available at the UF/IFAS
Citrus County Extension office
in Lecanto, which brings
research-based information to
the citizens of Citrus County.

Cracks in plaster can be easy to repair - or ignore


D ear Mr.
HandyPer-
son: My 1947
California Bungalow-
style home has plas-
ter walls and ceilings .
that are in need of
fresh paint It has
been some time since
the last painting, and
now horizontal and Mark
vertical cracks are I
showing, even HANDY
through layers of
paint Can these cracks be safely
sanded smooth and painted? Or
should I hire a lath-and-plaster
guy? - Diane, Fresno, Calif.


F


Dear Diane: Mr.
HandyPerson sup-
poses this is probably
. * the one response
that people dread
more than any, but: It
depends...
In this case, how-
ever, all he means to
say is that you have a
Hetts range of choices. For
R. better or worse, you
�ERSON live in earthquake
country, as has Mr
HP for the past three decades.
Cracks in plaster in older homes
in California (and in many other
places due to settling and other


causes besides earthquake
tremors) are a fact of life. How
you approach them depends on
both the severity of the cracks
and the degree to which you
tend to seek perfection or near-
perfection.
For minor hairline cracks in
the plaster, a little scraping out
of the crack and then some
spackling, sanding and priming
the patches before painting will
yield satisfactory results for a
time. "For a time" could be the
rest of your life or until the next
minor tremor
Mr HP's experience has been
that some minor cracks in his


home's plaster that he patched
and painted 25 years ago are still
invisible, while others (especial-
ly the diagonal floor-to-ceiling
crack in his kitchen) open up
about every six months, tremors
or not
If one were a complete fanatic
about minor cracks in plaster,
one could tear out sections of old
plaster and replaster them every
time a new crack appears. Or
one could, as Mr. HP has, ignore
the hairline cracks, hang pic-
tures in front of them and do a
little patching the next time a
room gets painted, in full knowl-
edge that some cracks will


return sooner or later It's really
your call, Diane.
Of course, if you are seeing
major gaps opening up -
cracks with one side hanging
out a half-inch beyond the other
or a section of ceiling plaster
threatening to drop .- some
serious plaster repairs are
called for. Still, even with larger
cracks, it is seldom truly neces-
sary to rip out large sections of
the plaster and replace it
One can often remove -
carefully - a small segment of
the plaster and replace it with a

HANDY
Continued from Page 29E

piece of drywall screwed to the
lath and, preferably, the near-
est joists or studs. Then a little
drywall compound (and sand-
ing when dry) will make the
repair mostly invisible before
priming and repainting. If you
don't feel confident doing these
kinds of repairs, then you may
want to hire a professional.
Dear Mr. HandyPerson:
Earlier this spring, a reader
wrote to you about the continu-
al leaking of her home's flat
roof over a porch, even though
many layers of tar had been
added.
Our leaking roof was above
an add-on porch and was
tarred many times. Later on, we
had a contractor install a rub-
ber roof. Still, many a rainfall
had us using a child's wading


pool to collect water inside
(making us the only people in
our neighborhood with an
indoor pool).
Eventually, we realized we
needed a new roof on the main
house after my son walked on
the old roof and discovered a
soft area. It turns out that THAT
was where the problem was:
The water had been following a
joist down the main roof all the
way to the flat roof. Problem
finally solved. Oh happy days
again! - Betty, Rankin, Ill.
Dear Betty: As you now know
about leaks - in roofs, walls,
foundations, plumbing - the
place where the water appears
does not always correspond
with where it's coming from.
When tracking down leaks, it
helps to understand that water
can travel great distances over
plaster and drywall ceilings, or
through walls, before finding a
convenient place to show itself.
Mr. HandyPerson is also fond
