By The Tampa Tribune
It is a reflection of how deeply the Florida Legislature
is in the pockets of special interests that lawmakers
have continually sought to eliminate protections
for assisted-living facility residents, though abuse is
widespread. Earlier this year an investigative series by
The Miami Herald found state regulators repeatedly
caught homes violating assisted living regulations but
virtually never closed or even sanctioned the offenders,
even when there was deadly abuse. It reported the state
Agency for Health Care Administration could have shut
down 70 homes in 2008 and 2009 for such violations
as abuse and neglect leading to death. It closed only
Seventy people have died from abuse or neglect in
assisted living homes since 2002. Causes included
starvation, gangrene, scalding bums and overdoses of
powerful narcotics. These are only the documented
cases. More than 200 have died under questionable
Since 2002, 1,732 homes were caught using illegal
restraints, locking patients in closets or tranquilizing
them with drugs. The state has caught homes falsifying
records 181 times since 2005.
Nevertheless, throughout this period, lawmakers
continually attacked residents' protections. The Herald
recently documented the slackening of standards.
Two years ago the Legislature dropped the require-
ment that regulators must provide lawmakers the
number of cases of abuse, neglect or other problems.
Out of sight, out of mind, seemed to be what lawmakers
wanted. Even more troubling, the same measure elimi-
nated the state's authority to bring in medical teams to
decide whether a sick resident should be.removed from
a home. The law left that decision to ALF operators.
The Herald reports, "Over the next two years, hundreds
of residents were found languishing in homes unable
to provide for their needs, nearly twice the rate it was
before the protection was cut."
The Legislature also demanded the Agency for Health
Care Administration streamline regulations and reduce
paperwork. Investigations of serious incidents dropped
by almost 90 percent.
This year some lawmakers tried to jettison the state's
ability to revoke the licenses of homes with two or more
serious violations and remove a Resident Bill of Rights
provision that allows residents to report wrongdoing
to state regulators without fear of retaliation. But the
Herald's revelations chilled such efforts.
Lawmakers did pass a measure that would have
denied public access to the list of troubled facilities, but
Gov. Rick Scott, to his credit, vetoed it.
Scott also appointed 14 members to a task force on
the assisted living facilities after the Herald series was
published. Perhaps it will do some good. At the first
meeting the other day of Scott's Assisted LivingWork-
group, Hillsborough Sen. Ronda Storms, a reliable
advocate for ALF residents, warned she wasn't buying
the industry's claim that only a few "bad actors" were
causing all the problems.
Pasco Sen. Mike Fasano also is a defender ofAFL
residents. But they likely won't get much help in their
effort to bolster oversight. Senate President Mike Hari-
dopolos even appointed an industry-friendly lawmaker
to oversee AFL legislative reforms. Storms and.Fasano
are small-government Republicans who hate red tape,
but they understand citizens shouldn't have to give up
their rights or dignity when they enter an assisted living
Sadly, too many of their colleagues cynically do what-
ever industry contributors want. Other lawmakers see
a threat in any government regulation, no matter how
justified. As Fasano, who was attacked by some fellow
lawmakers for wanting homes to have lifesaving medi-
cal devices, summed up the situation to the Herald: "It's
outrageous. I shake my head in disbelief. The'cost is
minimal to what the cost of a life is."

OLD DAYS OF

We should all serve our country
BY BILL MAXWELL
St. Petersurg Times
or the second time during his
presidency, Barack Obama
traveled to Dover Air Force
Base to salute the remains of U.S.
troops. This time, the remains
were those of the 30 troops killed
when their helicopter was shot
down recently in Afghanistan. The
president's words, as they always
are at such times, were solemn and
full of praise, underscoring the sac-
rifices and selflessness of the dead
warriors and the pain their loved
These ceremonies are impressive
for their dignity, but they always
leave me feeling empty, even a
little angry. While the sacrifices and
selflessness and pain of the dead
and their loved ones are lauded, no
mention is made of what the rest
of us owe these Americans who
volunteer to protect us.
What do we sacrifice for our
fallen troops and their families? I
take this issue personally. To critics,
let me point out that in 1966, as the
Vietnam War raged, I gave up defer-
ment as a college student to vol-
unteer for the U.S. Marine Corps.
The nation had the military draft
at that time. I volunteered because
I believed I had a duty to serve the
nation. I owed the United States.
I believe that our great free-
doms, which are the envy of most
other nations, are not free at all.
They were, and are, earned for us
to enjoy. If we are to keep these
freedoms name those important
to you we must work hard to
.protect and nurture them.
I am not calling for reinstatement
of the draft. I am, however, calling
for the implementation of manda-
tory national service. This may
never happen, but it is a debate
the nation should have. Every
able-bodied, mentally fit American
citizen should be required to serve
the nation in some capacity. I leave
the logistics to the experts.
Here is one idea: More than a
million young adults begin attend-
ing four-year colleges each year.
As a condition of admission tola
public college or to receive federal
funds to attend a private college,
students could be required to serve
their country for up to two years, in
civilian national service programs
such as AmeriCorps or the Peace
Corps or homeland security efforts
such as guarding nuclear plants or
in the military. Some would choose
the military, especially if they were
to receive more GI Bill-type college
aid ag a reward for more dangerous
I know medical professionals,
lawyers, building contractors and
journalists who financed their
educations with federal loans,
scholarships and fellowships. As a
condition of receiving these funds,
they could be required to perform
two years of national service. Doc-
tors could, for example, serve in
veteran's hospitals or agree to treat
a specific number of veterans in
their private offices at no cost. This
service would be a boon to VA hos-
pitals with long waiting lists.
Given the high number of brain
traumas resulting from our current
wars, thousands of troops need and
will need critical care. Psychologists
and psychiatrists and social work-
ers can serve for two years.
Like health care professionals,
lawyers who receive federal funds
could serve for two years in many
capacities. Each day, the VA at-
tempts to deal with thousands of
troop benefit claims. Lawyers who
are doing their two-year national
service could help streamline an
otherwise dysfunctional process.
Journalists can serve. We tend to
be patient researchers, keen ob-
servers and writers of clear prose.
Countless federal agencies could
use our talents for two years.
Again, all able-bodied, mentally
fit citizens could and should serve.
We should earn the right to enjoy
our great freedoms and amenities
that others have died for fnd will
continue to die for.
Inevitably, our president will
return to Dover Air Force Base to
salute more flag-draped cases con-
taining the remains of our fallen
warriors. The president again will
praise the sacrifices, the selfless-
ness and the courageous service of
And again, the president will not
call bn all Americans to honor our
warriors by sacrificing and serv-
ing. As a people, we should be

How religious do you want the president?
BY JOHN M. CRISP
Scripps Howard News Service
Ordinarily we hold our
presidents to a very low bar
when it comes to religion.
Of course, we require that they
be nominally "Christian," and
we're unforgiving on this essential
criterion. No atheist or agnostic
(or non-Christian) has a chance of
being elected much of anything in
But once they clear that first low
hurdle, our presidents are pretty
much free to practice their religions
with whatever level of devotion
suits them. John E Kennedy's Ca-
tholicism threatened to be a factor
during his 1960 campaign, but only
in retrospect did we discover how
little did Kennedy, whatever his
virtues, bind himself by his church's
strictest standards of personal
Lyndon B. Johnson was a mem-
ber of the Disciples of Christ and
Richard Nixon was a Quaker. It's
not.our place to judge their piety,
but neither was famous for practic-
ing the Christian values that we
esteem: humility, patience, hon-
esty and charity: In fact, both were
liars, connivers and practitioners
of some of the most profane, un-
Christian utterances ever recorded
in the Oval Office.
It's odd: we demand that presi-
dents be Christians, but we're
not particularly upset or even
surprised when they don't make
much of an effort to live up to tradi-
tional Christian values.
What if our presidents began to
hew more closely to the principles
that Jesus actually taught? I wonder
how we would feel about a presi-
dent who actually followed Christ's
directive to avoid resisting an evil
person, to "turn the other cheek,"
rather than demanding "an eye for
an eye." Jesus said that if someone
demands your tunic, let him have
your cloak, as well. Come to think
of it, President Obama's acquies-
cence to the Republicans over the
debt limit may have been the most
Christian act we've seen from the
White House in some time.
What if a president took the
phrase "Blessed are the meek"
seriously and therefore had trouble
embracing the concept of Ameri-
Jesus used a whip to drive the
moneychangers from the temple,
but modern America is all about
money changing. No American
president can be very interested
in laying up treasures in Heaven;
Americans demand treasures a
little closer to home, in the stock
market, low taxes, and low inter-
est rates. The poor? Jesus said sell
all that you have and give it to the
poor. Taxes? Jesus said "Render
unto Caesar the things that are
And God help the president who
remembers that the early Chris-
tians held all things in common.
But in general our Christian presi-
dents don't pay much attention to
the finer points of Christianity. In
fact, about the only Christian prin-
ciple that politicians of both parties
have taken seriously duringthe last
couple of decades is articulated
by Christ himself in Matthew 4:25:
"For he that hath, to him shall be
given: and he that hath not, from
him shall be taken even that which
he hath." So much for the middle
If the past is any indication,
we probably don't need to worry
too much about the impact any
candidate's religion will have on his
or her presidency, not even Texas
Governor Rick Perry's, who this
past weekend shook up the race
by declaring his candidacy. Perry's'
evangelicalism reaches out to his
party's right, and so far he's played
the religion card well. Last April
in the middle of a severe drought
Perry encouraged Texans to pray
for rain. The rain falls on the just
and the unjust we have plenty of
both in Texas. The fact that it hasn't
fallen on either hasn't seemed to
hurt Perry so far.
Perry believes that our nation
has some problems that can be
solved only by Jesus. This position
will resonate with some citizens,
but just in case Jesus lets us down,
I hope voters will be interested in
whether Perry has a Plan B.

Bringing smiles, help in midst of grief
Former resident to help raise money for mother, son killed in accident
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
A former Jackson County resi-
dent will represent his old com-
munity at a fundraiser being
held hundreds of miles away
on Aug. 27 to help the family of
a Kentucky woman and child
killed in a traffic crash here ear-
lier this month.
Tom Peurifoy Jr. said honor-
ing Carolyn Phillips and her son,
Devin Miller, may be one of the
most important things he has
ever done as a volunteer.
"I love Jackson County, and if I
can represent it there in a loving,
caring way, I'm happy to do it,"
Peurifoy said. "I felt like it was a
way to help Jackson County em-
brace this family, to tell them
that we love them and we mourn
their loved ones who died down
Peurifoy is the son of a former
Jackson Countyroad department
employee. He lived here from
1976-1990 and worked in the
construction trades; he helped
build the Federal Correctional
Institution in Marianna. He has
lived in Kentucky for several
years, and mourned along with
the rest of the Shelbyville com-
munity when he heard that Phil-
lips and Miller had been killed.
Carolyn Jean Miller. Phillips
died at the scene of the Aug. 6
crash on State Road 73, and son
Devin Anthony Miller died the
following Monday, Aug. 8.
A joint funeral for the moth-
er and son is planned for this
Phillips was a teacher's assis-
tant who also did a lot of volun-
teer work on behalf of children
throughout the Shelbyville area.
Her community is putting on
a big yard sale on Saturday, Aug.
27, to help the family financially;
Phillips leaves behind a hus-
band, 10-year-old twin sons and
a daughter. Her husband, Victor
Phillips, and the 10-year-olds
were hurt in the accident.
Sources in Kentucky say the
husband and children have now
all returned to Kentucky after
extended hospital stays in Talla-
hassee and Pensacola.
Tom Peurifoy didn't know the
family, but said he will try to
bring a message of encourage-
ment to his Kentucky communi-
ty by volunteering to perform his
roving "Christian clown" routine
at the yard sale. Peurifoy makes
balloon animals and does other
things to amuse youngsters at
various functions in this sideline
Peurifoy said his character is
called "Earnest Encouragement,"
a name that speaks the purpose
of the character. He said while
the yard sale was made neces-
sary because of a tragedy, he and
the organizers believe his char-
acter can help bring an appro-
priate and needed sense of hope
and lightheartedness to the day.
In fact, those who knew Phillips
say she would be pleased at his
effort to bring a smile to the fac-
es of children on that day.
Some people who still live in
Jackson County are stepping up
to help in another way.
A trust fund for the family has
been set up at American Found-
ers Bank in Shelbyville, and con-
tributions have been made there
by local people as well as those
in the Phillips' community.
The Phillips Trust Fund is
managed by bank official Lisa
Hood. She can be reached at

President Barack Obama stops for breakfast with small business owners at Rausch's Cafe in
Guttenberg, Iowa, on Tuesday, during his three-day economic bus tour.
Obamahas a bigbullhorn
for the 2012 political trail
The Associated Press
PEOSTA, Iowa It's the biggest bull-
horn in the political world.
The presidency and all the attention it
commands are giving Barack Obama a
chance to frame the national story line
this week, to try to put his imprint and
spin on the economic and political wind
shear that has been battering him.
His bus tour through three Midwest-
ern states, complete with a blocks-long
motorcade, is giving Obama the oppor-
tunity to attract the front-page head-
lines that a White House occupant can
generate even with modest or rehashed
proposals. A marvel of logistics, commu-
nications and transport that few orga-
nizations are equipped to execute, it's a
welcome advantage as he fights back in
a noxious political environment and in
the face of weakening public approval.
Wrapping up a forum on rural econo-
mies at Northeast Iowa Community
College on Tuesday, Olama sounded a
sentimental note about the appeal of the
"As I was driving down those little
towns in my big bus, we slowed down
and I'm standing in the front and I'm
waving," he said softly. "I'm seeing little
kids with American flags, grandparents
in their lawn chairs and folks outside a
machine shop, and passing churches
and cemeteries, corner stores and farms.
I'm reminded about why I wanted to get
into public service in the first place."
He's not the first and won't be the last
president to employ all the trappings
of power to seek a connection with the
public. Presidents get credit in the hin-
terlands just for showing up, even from
those who don't support them.
"I wish him well," said Jim Pape, a 78-
year-old retiree in Guttenberg, Iowa,
who was havingbreakfast at a caf6 when
Obama and his entourage swooped in.
"He isn't all bad, but I'd prefer a different
That's praise from a man with this view
of Washington: "They ought to plow it
under and plant corn."
The Des Moines Register, an influen-
tial paper in the region, ran two photo-
graphs and an article on the front page
following Obama's first day on the road.
Nationally, the president also com-
manded prominent headlines and cable
and network coverage.
Obama hit the road with slipping poll
numbers, an up-and-down stock mar-
ket,.a downgrade of U.S. credit by Stan-
dard & Poor's and the hangover of a bit-
terly fought debt ceiling deal. And he still
managed to step all over the GOP presi-
dential field, just as the Republicans
were commanding attention with their
Iowa straw poll, a big debate and the en-
try of Texas Gov. Rick Perry into the race.
Obama's tour put all the trappings of
power on full display. He boarded his
Marine One helicopter on the White
House lawn to fly to nearby Joint Base
Andrews in Maryland. From there he
flew on Air Force One to Minneapolis-St.
Paul, Minn. There he boarded his new
$1.1 million Secret Service armored bus,
joined a motorcade of up to 30 vehicles
and rambled 260 miles through Min-
nesota and Iowa corn fields and small
towns. The trip was to end Wednesday
in western Illinois before the president
and his family head off for a summer
The locales for two outdoor town halls
Monday were selected by White House
aides for maximum photographic ap-
peal. The Cannon River provided the
backdrop in Cannon Falls, Minn., and
hay bales and a photogenic red barn,
lit by late afternoon sun, framed his ap-
pearance in Decorah, Iowa.
Aides also chose road stops, arrang-
ing lunches and breakfasts with groups
that help drive the president's message.
On Monday he lunched with veterans at
a delicatessen in Cannon Falls; on Tues-
day he had breakfast with businessmen
at a cafe in Guttenberg.
Local police provide security and shut
down roads well in advance of the first
sight of his imposingly dark, state-of-the
art bus. Secret Service agents provide a
protective circle at every moment.
News camera crews, photographers
and reporters in his entourage run to
capture every moment of public interac-
tion, hoping for an impromptu moment.
The press corps follows Obama on char-
tered buses and a plane a luxury that
none of the Republican candidates have
There was enough of a campaign feel
to the trip that Republican National
Committee Chairman Reince Priebus
called on Obama to use his campaign's
money to finance the trip. The White
House dismissed such calls, arguing the
trip fell within the demands of the pres-
ident's job as chief executive. Yet Obama
has criticized congressional Republicans
and GOP presidential candidates.

US stocks fall on
The Associated Press
NEW YORK Worries
about Europe's economic
and debt problems sent
stocks Tuesday to their first.
loss in four days.
The major indexes
bounced up and down in
another volatile day. The
Dow Jones industrial av-
erage fell more than 120
points in the first half hour
of trading after a report
showed that Germany's
economy stalled last quar-
ter and dragged down
growth for Europe.
The Dow recovered and
had a slight advance at
midday, but resumed its
drop after the leaders of
France and Germany tried
to calm worries about Eu-
rope's debt problems by
pushing for long-term po-
litical solutions. Investors
were hoping for immedi-
ate financial measures
like the introduction of a
single bond jointly backed
by the eurozone's mem-
bers. The Dow fell as many
as 190 points in the early
afternoon before again
Atthe close, the Dow was
down 76.97, or 0.7 percent,
to 11,405.93. It was the first
time in seven trading days
that the Dow rose or fell by
less than 100 points. The
Standard & Poor's 500 in-
dex fell 11.73, or 1 percent,
to 1,192.76. The Nasdaq.
composite fell 31.75, or 1.2
percent, to 2,523.45.
"The real question the
market is trying to answer
is: Are we going to have
another recession or not?"
said John Burke, head of
Burke Financial Strategies
with $200 million in assets
under management. "To-
day, the answer is maybe
yes, because it doesn't look
like Europe has figured out
a solution to its debt."
A proposal for a Europe-
wide tax on financial trans-
actions also hurt stocks,
said Nick Kalivas, vice
president at broker MF
Global. "It's another slap
in the face to the banking
system" and would cut
into profits and limit trad-
ing, he said. "The path to-
ward economic growth still
looks pretty uncertain."
The day's trading showed
how critical economic
developments about Eu-
rope have become to U.S.
But Tuesday's losses were
moderate and pointed 'to
some stability in the mar-
ket after the selling that

In the U.S., economic re-
ports Tuesday were mixed:

Hornets look to rebound
BY DUSTIN KENT
After a disappointing 2010
season, the Cottondale Hornets
middle school squad will look
to turn things around in 2011
on the strength of a solid eighth-
grade class and a talented offen-
The Hornets went winless last
season, dropping all five games,
but they return a good core led
by running backs/linebackers
DaMychal Faulk and Chris Hall.
First-year Cottondale coach
Phillip Jones said that duo would
need to lead the way if the Hor-
nets are going to be successful
"They're both good, strong
kids, and good athletes," the
coach said. "They can really help
us solidify the middle of our de-
fense at linebacker.",
Hall was the Hornets' leading
rusher last year, and both he and
Faulk will be counted on to pro-
duce not just on defense, but on
offense as well.
"Chris Hall hada lot of produc-
tion last year, and is a real good
athlete. He should progress and
produce for us this year," Jones
said. "Faulk is a year older and
more physical, and he should
be able to run between the tack-
les more effectively this year.
Javonte Hall will also bring us
some speed at the wing-back
Eighth-grader Jesse Foran re-
turns as a starter on the offensive
and defensive lines to give the
Hornets four returning starters
on both sides of the ball.
Jones called Foran "very prom-
ising" as a right guard, with
eighth-grader Keyshawn Webb
set to start at right tackle after
starting off and on last year.
But of all the returning players,
the coach said it was Faulk who
had the potential to make the
biggest impact on the team.
"He's our best player. He's the
leader on the team," the coach
said. "He's intelligent, he knows

Pirates get physical
Sneads'Trent McDaniel hands the ball off during the Pirates practice Tuesday.
Increased weight training ushers in new attitude for Sneads
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Sneads Pirates are
heading into the 2011 season
with renewed optimism and
expectations for a turnaround
year after last season's disap-
pointing 1-9 campaign.
Part of that optimism comes
from the fact that Sneads
coach Don Dowling and his
staff believes the Pirates are
going to be a much more
physical team on both sides of
the ball in 2011.
Reason for that comes most-
ly from the revitalization of
the weight program at Sneads,
and an off-season that saw
heavy participation in it from
the returning Pirate players.
"We'll definitely be more
physical, if for no other reason
the off-season weight pro-
gram," Dowling said. "I can
already see the difference in
how we hit and everything like
that. They're physically stron-
ger, so that when they make
contact there's a little thump
The renewal of the weight
program was vital, but the dif-
ference wouldn't be felt if not
for the focus and will of the
players to make use of it, ac-
cording to Dowling.
"I can't say enough about it.
The kids jumped in with both
feet," the coach said. "They
bought into it, into everything
we're doing. I can tell the
The coach said he has no-
ticed not just a difference in
his players' physical makeup,
but their mental one as well.
"Because they're showing
so many gains (in the weight
room), they walk around with
their chest bowed out a little
more, like they feel they can
do something now," Dowling
said. "Add all that in to the
spring game that we had (wins
over Port St. Joe and Wewahi-
tchka), and they're bouncing
around pretty confident right
At 200 pounds, junior run-
ning back Tre Keys will give
the Pirates a more physical
running threat this season,
but Dowling said the key to a
powerful ground attack is in
the offensive line.
"We're so much stronger up
there," the coach said of his
offensive front. "We're talking
about them getting nastier at
the line, finishing the block
and putting guys on their
backs. I can tell we're better at
that right now."
Finishing plays has been a
theme of practice this week on
both sides of the ball, Dowling

As NCAAprobes, Miami coach says mistakes were made
The Associated Press
MIAMI Miami Hurricanes
coachAl Golden says some of his
player may have made mistakes
that prompted an NCAA inves-
tigation into convicted Ponzi
schemer Nevin Shapiro's role
with the program.
Golden, preparing for his first
season with the Hurricanes, said
he just became aware of the in-
vestigation into allegations that
Shapiro gave more than a dozen
former or current players gifts
"We're not going to let this
knock us backward," Golden
said Tuesday before a morning
practice. "We have great kids on
this team to the extent that they
may have made a mistake. OK,
that's fine. But that's also part
of growing up. What we have to
teach them now is if something
did occur, let's be honest and
NCAA investigators visited the
campus Monday in the wake of
Shapiro's allegations that he pro-
vided players with the use of a
yacht and other favors, said his
attorney, Maria Elena Perez. Sha-
piro and Perez have been talking
with the NCAA about the matter
for a couple of months and pro-
vided documentation, she said.
Golden said athletic director
Shawn Eichorst and president
Donna Shalala were meeting
with investigators, but the coach
didn't expect to be included in
"It's hard for me to stand up
here and defend something that
occurred three, four, five, six
years ago," Golden said. "I don't
know the extent of it. We're going
to look at it. We're disappointed,
but we're not discouraged."
Shapiro's relationship with the
program dates back about a de-
cade. Some of the alleged inci-
dents occurred in the past four
years, which would be within
the NCAA's statute of limitations
Miami officials said that when
Shapiro first made his allega-
tions nearly a year ago, he and
his attorneys refused to provide
any facts to the school.
"The university notified the
NCAA enforcement' officials of I
these allegations," the school
said in a statement. "We are
fully cooperating with the NCAA
and are conducting a joint in-
vestigation. The University of
Miami takes these matters very

in December after Randy Shan-
non was fired. Eichorst was
hired as athletic director in April
to replace Kirby Hocutt, who re-
signed to become athletic direc-
tor at Texas Tech.

Although you know a close
friend has the information
you've been seeking, you
might be too reluctant to
call him or her on it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22) Avoid trying to imi-

something, because you
would be far more effective

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- Certain people with
whom you're involved will
have long memories. Thus,
whether you are coopera-
tive with them won't easily
- It will take a strong belief

your mindset as to wheth-
er or not learning will be a
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.

likely to put forth nomi-
nal effort on matters that'
should be of personal im-
portance, don't treat others
in the same manner.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Unless you try your
best to smooth over condi-
tions that are a bit abrasive,
you could find yourself in
the middle of a brouhaha.
PISCES (Feb.20-March 20)
- The only way your nor-

larger returns than usual

Dear Annie: "Elaine" has been married
to my brother for 45 years. She is critical,
opinionated and condescending, and
she loves to use her poison tongue to
point out our faults to her husband and
children. I do my best to remain cordial
for my brother's sake, but it is nearly
When they married, we welcomed
Elaine with open arms, but she made it
clear that we were never good enough.
When I was a teenager, she tried to plant
seeds of doubt in my mind, saying my
parents didn't love me.
When Elaine went back to college later
in life, she became worse. She analyzed
everything we said or did at family
gatherings, making all events stressful.
When confronted about her attitude, she
blamed others because, of course, she is
I now realize Elaine lacks self-confi-
dence and trashed our family in order to
eliminate competition for the affection
of her husband and children. She has
no respect for others. After my parents
died, Elaine told my daughter that her
grandparents didn't love her, and that
We have ducking plays in bridge. Sometimes
they are responsible, sometimes foolhardy.
Which is it in this deal? South gets to three no-
trump, and West leads the spade king. What
should declarer do?
In the auction, two spades was a transfer to
clubs, South's rebid saying that he liked clubs.
North's three-heart rebid showed a singleton
or void in that suit. South, with hearts well
guarded, bid three no-trump. North, after a lot
of staring at the ceiling, passed. Note that five
clubs is defeated ifWest is psychic and leads his
South starts with seven top tricks: one spade,
four hearts and two clubs. Assuming clubs
are 2-1, not 3-0, that suit appears to provide
seven winners, but there is a snag the suit
is blocked. Declarer must win the third round
in his hand and there will be no dummy entry
Did you see the trick, if you'll excuse the pun?
Declarer ducks the first trick. Then he ducks
West's spade continuation. And on the third
round, he discards his club nine. Finally, he
plays a club to his king, cashes his four heart
tricks, and runs the clubs for two overtricks.
their lives were one bitter feud that only
Elaine was smart enough to notice. My
confused daughter asked me about these
comments, which fortunately gave me
the opportunity to set the record straight.
I wish my brother would speak up, but
he has been dominated too long. It won't
do any good to tell Elaine what I think of
her. She can't see that she has alienated
everyone with her abrasive personality.
But she is now spreading her vile, delu-
sional untruths to the next generation.
How do I nip that in the bud?
SICK OF THE SHREW
Dear Sick: We're impressed that you've
tolerated this woman for 45 years. If
Elaine tells a lie in your presence, say
sweetly, "Now, Elaine, dear, you know
that isn't true. You simply must stop mak-
ing things up."
Unfortunately, you have little con-
trol over what she says to her children
behind your back. When you see the kids,
be sure to emphasize the good things
- how much the family loves them, and
how they should come to you if they ever
have any questions.

Gadhafi's troops use hospital as home base
The Associated Press
ZAWIYA, Libya-The day
Libyan rebels advanced
into the strategic city of Za-
wiya, Moammar Gadhafi's
forces clamped down on
the local hospital.
They forced doctors to
perform hours of consecu-
tive surgeries, put snipers
on the roof and an anti-
aircraft gun near the en-
trance, two doctors who
managed to escape said
As the Libyan regime's
grip on this coastal city of
200,000 is slipping, stories
are seeping out about the
reign of fear and intimida-
tion imposed here over the
past five months.
Residents interviewed in
rebel-controlled parts of
Zawiya gave accounts of
mass arrests in the preced-
ing months. A woman said
her son-in-law and two of
his relatives were arrest-
ed and killed by Gadhafi
agents. A rebel fighter said
he was subjected to beat-
ings and electric shocks.
Zawiya had risen up
forcefully against Gadhafi
when anti regime pro-
tests swept the country
in mid-February, but was
preoccupied in a brutal
crackdown in mid-March.
Rebels pushed into the city
on Saturday, but after four
days of fighting Gadhafi's
soldiers still cling to posi-
tions in eastern areas, in-
cluding the hospital.
Dr. Hamid al-Shawish, a
30-year-old surgeon, said
the regime had clamped
down hard op Zawiya since
March, arresting anyone
suspected of sympathizing
with-the rebels. At least 20
doctors and nurses were
seized from the hospital,
and some remain missing,
He and a colleague, gy-
al-Kum, said regime forces
were a constant presence
in the hospital, replac-
ing the director with one
of their own and ordering
medical staff around.
On Saturday morning,
there was an influx of dead
and wounded regime sol-
diers, and civilian patients
were ordered to leave the
hospital to make room, the
two doctors said. Troops.
closed down the pediat-
rics and gynecology wards,
The bodies of at least
30 Gadhafi soldiers were
brought in that day, along
with some 150 wounded,
said al-Shawish, who was
in charge of the emergen-
cy room. Rebels often al-
lege that most of Gadhafi's
troops are African mer-
cenaries, but al-Shawish
said there were many Liby-
ans among the wounded
The soldiers ordered
doctors and nurses to stay
on their jobs, according to
al-Shawish, who said he
performed 15 operations
between 11 a.m. Saturday
and 3 a.m. Sunday. He
said three more surgeons
worked on other floors.
Al-Shawish said that
while he was working,
armed soldiers wandered
in an out of the emergency
room. "Anyone who was
not operating was told to
operate," said al-Shawish,
but added that he did not
have guns pointed at him.
Gadhafi's men posted
snipers on the roof and an
anti-aircraft gun in a yard,
right outside the window
of the emergency room,
the doctor said. Gadhafi's
forces fired randomly at
nearby houses, but he did
not hear incoming rebel
fire, he said.
Al-Kum said he was able
to sneak out of the hospi-
tal on Sunday. Al-Shawish
said he recognized a sol-
dier guarding the hospi-
tal gate as the father of an

infant he had circumcised.
After initially refusing to
let the doctor go, the guard
relented and let al-Shawish
walk out Sunday, with a
promise that he would re-
turn shortly. Since their es-
cape, the two doctors have
been working at a clinic in
Bir Moammar, a rebel-con-
trolled village about eight
kilometers (five miles)
south of Zawiya.
European Financial Crisis

The Associated Press
PARIS France and

proposed a Europe-wide

$110.10, the third biggest
loser on the S&P.
Investors may be con-
cerned about how the euro

its leaders have suggested
and how a proposed tax

may affect demand for

He said the plan to form a
deeper fiscal union among
the 17 countries using the
euro "made the euro cred-

only tighter fiscal con-

partners, will resolve a
crisis that has dragged on
for nearly two years and
resulted in a string of sov-

Sarkozy and Merkel
stressed their commitment
to defending the common
currency, a cornerstone of
integration on this long-
fractured continent. They
presented their proposals
after meeting Tuesday in
Paris amid signs of eco-

an exceptionally turbulent
week on financial mar-

about Europe's financial
Sarkozy told reporters
that he and Merkel want a
"true European economic
government" that would
consist of the heads of
state and government of
all eurozone nations.
The new body would
meet twice a year and
more in times of crisis
- and be led initially by
EU President Herman Van
Rompuy for a 2/2-year
term. After that, Sarkozy
suggested, it could be
opened up to other heads
of states and government.
