Shumaker will have an ex-
hibit and about 30 plants to be
judged. As he was showing off his
plants, Shumaker was judging
his own plants: A knick on the
bloom here, a yellow leaf there,
all things he worried the judges
would knock off points for.
"The flower has to be better
than anything they've judged
before," he said.
Still, Shumaker believes he
has a good chance of coming
home with some prizes. The
last time he competed, he came
home-with some ribbons, and he
learned from that experience.
The goal prize for this weekend
will be the first class certificate

The exhibit will have a tropi-

From The Tampa Tribune
Concerned about rampant tax fraud, U.S. Sen.
strengthen IRS enforcement and look for ap-
propriate ways to include local police in federal cases
of ID theft.
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor is also calling for hearings on
how best to crack down on fraud and save the govern-
ment billions of dollars. It's a timely response to the
announcement last week that Tarnpa.police had discov-
ered local tax thieves are stealing hundreds of millions a
year from the U.S. Treasury.
Nelson wants to make identity theft in tax fraud a
felony punishable by up to five years in prison. A more
useful part of his bill would increase IRS resources.
In Senate testimony earlier this year, it was reported
that 95 percent of the identity thieves prosecuted last
year by the Department of Justice for collecting fraudu-
lent taxtrefunds wenteto pniseoi lax pnshmen doesn't
prison sentences been no deterrent?
The answer is found in other statistics. Last year, the
IRS identified more than 245,000 incidents of tax-re-
lated identity theft. But there were only 4,706 criminal
investigations of any type. What Tampa police found is
substantiated by these numbers. Criminals involved in
this scam don't worry much about getting caught.
From the IRS, perspective, it's hard enough to catch
the major thieves while sorting through honest mis-
takes and minor cheating. Making sure everyone is who
they say they are is daunting. *
From the perspective of the identity thieves, as long
as the IRS doesn't know who they are, they don't worry
about having to explain blatant lies and phonyW-2
The IRS makes sure names match Social Security
numbers, but if a taxpayer is dead and a thief is using
that name and number, the IRS might not catch it,
One approach is to try to keep secret the~numbers of
the dead, but a better approach is being tried by the
IRS in a pilot program. It is experimenting with auto-
matically flagging a return filed in the name of a dead
But instead of simply rejecting the return, the IRS
should work with local police to run down the perpetra-
tor. It would also seem possible to link Social Security
numbers to ages, to prevent thieves from using.the
identities of babies to collect low-income tax credits.
When a 2-year-old claims dependents, alarms should
One concern in such a crackdown is that innocent
taxpayers are sure to be inconvenienced. An investiga-
tion by Scripps Howard News Service discovered that
in the past 13 years, the Social Security death index
has incorrectly listed 31,931 people who were in fact
alive. The Social Security Administration explained it as
"inadvertent keying errors."
Despite the challenges, identity theft must be brought
under control. A major review of IRS enforcement pro-
cedures is overdue. ..
Some taxpayer concerns could be answered by setting
up an agency to advocate for taxpayers and help them
correct the official record in cases of error or outright
Taxpayers who think their identity may have been sto-
len should alert the IRS right away. Already, 378,000 tax-
payers have identity-theft indicators on their accounts,
and it only seems a matter of time until we all do.
We commend Nelson and Castor for looking into how
to protect us taxpayers from thieves who are using the
confidential tax system against us. Just as intelligence
agencies are cooperating to stop terrorists, the IRS
should better work with other law- enforcement agen-
cies to stop this major drain.of tax dollars.

Yes, even politicians can have it.

that Texas girls going into the sixth
grade be inoculated against the

former governor of Massachusetts,
perhaps seeing his own vulner-
abilities records can be a biting
reality didn't take the bait.
Whatever the motivation, it was
one of many pander-free zones in
the. Reagan Library debate.

of similarly gigantic propor-
tions to those of Sept. 11, 2001, but
it is not enough. That's because
the decade we look back on is
marked by a specifically Islamic
brand of security from jihad. It was
a security bought by the Bush and
Obama administrations' policies -
of appeasement based in apology
for, and irrational denial of, Islam's
war doctrine, its anti-liberty laws
and its non-Western customs. As
a result of this policy of appease-
ment submission we now
stand poised on the brink of a
golden age. .
Tragically for freedom of speech,
conscience and equality before the
law, however, it is an Islamic golden
age. It's not just the post-9/11 rush
into Western society of Islamic
tenets and traditions on everything
from law to finance to diet that has
heralded this golden age, although
that's part of it. More important is
the fact that our central institutions
have actively primed themselves
for it, having absorbed and imple-
mented the central codes of Islam
in the years since the 9/11 attacks,
exactly as the jihadists hoped and
Take the U.S. military, symbol
plus enforcer of American security.
In Afghanistan, our forces are
now "trained on the sanctity of the
holy book (the Quran) and go to
significant steps to protect it," as
the official International Security
Assistance Force (ISAF) website
reported last year.
Are they similarly trained to take
"significant steps" to "!protect"
other books? Hardly. It's reckless
and irresponsible to demand that
troops make the protection of any
book a priority in a war zone. But
it's not merely the case that U.S.
troops have become protectors of
the Quran in the decade follow-
ing 9/11. "Never talk badly about
the Quran or its contents," ISAF
ordered troops earlier this year.
Did the Pentagon restrict language
about "Mein Kampf" or the "Com-
munist Manifesto"? They, too, were
blueprints for world conquest
that the United States opposed. Of
But the Quran is different. It is
protected by Islamic law, and that's
enough for the Pentagon. Not
incidentally, ISAF further cautioned
troops to direct suspects to re-
move any Qurans from the vicinity
before troops conduct a search
- no doubt for the unstated fear
that infidel troops might defile the
protected book. .
None may "touch the Quran
except in the state of ritual purity,"
the Islamic law book Reliance of
the Traveller declares. And "ritual
purity," naturally, is a state a non-
Muslim can never, ever achieve

In July, Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton announced a collaborative
effort between the United States
and the OIC, newly repackaged as
Organization of the Islamic Coop-
eration. (It used to be "C" for Con-
ference.) The get-together planned
for Washington, D.C., is supposed
to implement a non-binding
resolution against religious "stereo-
typing" (read: Islamic "ste'reotyp-
ing") that passed last March at the
U.N. Human Rights Council. Such
"stereotyping," of course, includes
everything from honest assess-
ments of the links between Islamic
doctrine and Islamic terrorism
to political cartoons. This makes
this U.S.-led international effort
nothing short of a sinister attempt
to snuff free speech about Islam.
And that sure sounds like a U.S.-co-
chaired assault on the First Amend-
ment. Not only is this treachery on
the part of the U.S. government, it
also happens to be part and parcel
of the OIC's official 10-year-plan.
Since when did Uncle Sam get in
the business of doing the bidding
of the OIC?
This is just a snapshot of what
the rush toward Islamization as a
goal of national policy looks like,
10 years since the Twin Towers col-

PEMBROKE PINES The me-
morial started with a steel beam
salvaged from the World Trade Cen-
ter a small piece of the terrorist
attacks that the city of Pembroke
Pines, Fla., was determined to hon-
or mn as own way.
Nobody from this Fort Lauderdale
suburb died on Sept. 11. But plans
for its memorial grew ever more
elaborate at one point projected
to cost more than $1 million as
the years passed.
"It was a glass-enclosed, air-con-
ditioned house," recalled the city's
mayor, Frank Ortis. "With a reflec-
tion pool and water running down,
hurricane-resistant glass. Obviously
we couldn't do that."
Hundreds of small memorials to
Sept. 11 have bloomed across the
country in the 10 years since the at-
-tacks. But in inany towns, what be-
gan as a simple tribute to the dead
turned into an expensive headache
as the cost of building such memo-
rials ballooned and the economy
Still short of funds, some cit-
les dramatically scaled down the
scope of the projects, paid the out-
standing bill with public money or
abandoned a memorial altogether,
Others remain unfinished with no
completion date in sight.
The numbers are minuscule com-
pared with what it cost to build the
major national memorials: $700
million for the National September
11 Memorial & Museum in New
York City and at least $60 milion for
the Flight 93 memorial near Shanks-
ville, Pa. .
But like these small towns, even
the Flight 93 memorial is still strug-
gling to raise enough money to
build its original design organiz-
ers need to raise about $10 million
fo finish the memorial's first phase
and maintain it in the future.
Jerry Sanford, a former New York
City firefighter, has been soliciting
money since 2004 for a granite-me-
naorial in the shape of an American
flag to be displayed in North Naples,
Fla. Through private donations, he
has raised about $600,000 but he
still needs $800,000 more to pay for
the granite. .
Sanford had been hoping to unveil
the memorial in time for the 10th
anmiversary, but nobw he doesn't
knoyr when; it will be completed.

There was a nationwide rush to

about 400 memorials to 9/11 while

wanted to do it, but it became more
and more difficult."
It's impossible to say how much
money has been spent on the pro-
liferation of memorials of all kinds
across the U.S. from makeshift
crosses on the side of the road to
massive monuments because
most are funded through a combi-
nation of pi~ivate and public money.

in this country, though. In fact, af-
ter World War II, monuments were
eschewed in favor of "living memo-

ming pools.named in memory' of

boom began in the 1980s when the
Vietnam Veterans Memorial opened

be represented by a memorial in the
public sphere," she said. "People

Stout, then the district attorney in
San Bernardino County, Calif., be-
gan an effort to build a pair of me-
morials to the victims, one east of
Los Angeles and a twin in New York.
His nonprofit group, called the
Freedom's Flame Sept. 11 Memo-
rial, had a solid start, raising more
than $200,000 in its first two years.
It picked a design, which depicts
people escaping down a staircase at
the twin towers while rescuers climb
up. They paid for renderings.
But when Stout failed to win re-
election, the donations dried up.
Now, nearly a decade after the effort
began, there is still no memorial.
The money is largely gone, too, spent
partly on organizing a temporary,
traveling memorial exhibit made up
of limestone cladding from the Pen-
tagon, a damaged FDNY fire truck
and World Trade Center steel. Today
they have only around $20,000 left

Rep. Ron Paul's claim that he had

Illegal immigrationwas a tough-

to grant in-state college tuition to
illegal immigrants seeking U.S.

Mexico "has clear and along re-

go to college can become produce

other methods to reduce the riumber of

TSA Administrator John Pistole .had
called for a more aggressive pat-down
for air travelers wheri he took over the
agency last year because he thought it

cording to the TSA.
"TSA anticipates these changes, which
will begin rolling out in select airports
this week, will continue to strengthen
and streamline the security screen-
ing process for travelers," said agency
spokesman, Greg Soule.
The government is expected to soon
begin testing a new airport screening
system on a small number of travelers
who volunteer personal information that
intelligence officials will vet. If cleared,
these travelers could go through security
faster, in some cases, because they won't
be asked to take their shoes off.
Removing shoes during checkpoint
screenings has been a common com-

operative tried to set off a bomb built
into his shoe on an American Airlines
flight in December 2001.

port security checkpoints, Homeland

Congress on Tuesday. The policjr also in-
cludes other ways to screen young chiil-
dren without resorting t~o a pat-down
that involves touching private areas on
Napolitano said during a Senate hear-
ing on the terror threat to the U.S. that
the changes would be rolled out ini the
coming months. But the Transportation
Security Administration later said the
changes would be rolled out iix weeks
rather than months.
Napolitano said there may be some ex-
ceptions to keep airport security unpre-
dictable. Terrorists have plotted to use
children as suicide bombers, and some
children still may be required to remove
their shoes to keep security random. -
"There will always be some unpredict-
ability built into the system, and there
will always be random checks even for
groups that we are looking at differently,
such as children," she said.
Many travelers have complained that
the TSA does not use common sense
when it screens all air travelers the same
way, including young children and.the
elderly. Criticism escalated last year
when the government began using a
pat-down more invasive than what had
been used in the past, one that involves
screeners feeling a traveler's genital and

days after the 10th anniversary of the

swers about potential food-related
threats and reports that the govern-
ment could have wasted money on
agriculture anti-terror programs.
"The unfortunate truth is that we,
as` a nation, lack effective surveil-

Dear Annie: A while back, I signed up for
Facebook in order to stay in touch with
friends and renew old acquaintances.
Several weeks ago, my husband's 35-
year-old daughter, "Sheila," sent me a
friend request. She has nof been in touch
with us since she turned 18, when my
husband no longer had to pay child sup- -
port. Obviously, they were never close.
I told my husband about the request,
.and he said to ignore it. But Sheila is now
married with a child, and I'd like to think
she has since matured and wants to
reconnect with her father. Of course, his
impression is that she wants something
fr~om us. Even though I have no desire to
be Facebools friends with my husband's
daughter, I feel stuck in the middle. I
think he should get to know her again .
and meet his grandchild. What should I
STUCK IN THE MIDDLE IN KANSAS
Dear Stuck: We hope your husband: re-
alizes that an 18-year-old girl is apt to be-
have much differently ~than a 35-year-old
married mother. As the adult during the
divorce, it was your husband s respon-
sibility to maintain a relationship with
his child and not allow her Adolescent
anger to get in the way.We think Sheila
deserves another chance, and so does
your husband. Encourage him to make
contact. He has a grandchild to think of.
And if she's only after money, he'll find
out soon enough.
Dear Annie: I sympathize with "Trired of
Wet B~eds," whose 14-year-old stepson
has enuresis. I went through the same
thing with my daughter, who wet the
bed until she was 11. I discovered that an
allergy to the lactose in milk can cause
bedwetting. After my daughter was off
whole milk for three days, she stopped
wetting the bed completely.
If the stepson has any sensitivity to
dairy products or if he was allergic to
milk as a baby, this could be the root

Here is another deal from my cruise to Nor-
way two months ago. Look at the West hand.
East opens one spade, West raises to two
spades, North makes a takeout double, and
South advances with three diamonds, which
ends the auction. What should West lead?
Note the disciplined -auction. East has a per-W
fectly respectable one-spade opening, but 6
when West can offer only a single raise, East
should not go higher, because he has no extra
values or spade length. Equally, West said his +
piece on the first round. &
When you have supported your partner's
suit, lead high from a low tripleton to deny an
honor. If West does this, East should find the
right defense. He must win with his spade king-
anld shift to the club king under which West
should signal enthusiastically with his nine to
show the jack. A moment later, when West gets
in with the heart ace, a club continuation gives
the defense five tricks: two spades, one heart
and two clubs.
Note that if West leads the spade three at trick
one, East will assume West has a spade honor,
which must be the jack. It would then be safe
for East to start with two spade winners before
switching to clubs. Here, though, that is fatal
because South discards a club from the dum-
my on his spade jack.
