rial service, which was attended by
a total of more than 17,000 fans and
watched by tens of millions of people
around the world.
Matt Szabo, a spokesman for
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, hailed
the tally a success. He said it was
"far less" than the initial estimate of
$4 million.

the Year honors


Associated Press
ORLANDO - A Tampa
elementary school teach-
er was named Florida's
2010. Teacher of the Year
at a ceremony in Orlando
Thursday.
Megan Allen, who teach-
es at Cleveland Elementary
School, was chosen from
more than 180,000 teachers
statewide.
A teary Allen thanked
her family, friends, co-work-
ers and students after being
announced as the winner.
In videos shown earlier in
the evening profiling each
finalist, she said she was
on a different career path
but decided to become a
teacher after her mother
died of pancreatic cancer.
"I decided to follow in
my mom's footsteps," Allen
said. "I get so much joy out
of being a teacher. I learn
so much from my students
everyday."
Allen, 30, has taught five
years and teaches fourth
grade. She will receive
$10,000, a $1,000 wardrobe


and a free trip for four to
New York to see this year's
Macy's Thanksgiving Day
Parade.
The other finalists
were Patricia Fairclough,
of Miami-Dade County;
Emily Barbacci, of Leon
County; Melissa Reiker,
of Orange County; and
Marilynn Pedek, of Palm
Beach County. Each finalist,
including Allen, received
$5,000, a Macy's $500 gift
card and a $1,000 grant for
their schools.
"You represent legions of
teachers throughout Florida
who do amazing work every-
day," Florida Education
Commissioner Eric Smith
said before an audience of
several hundred. "It is so
energizing to spend time
with teachers. Where does
your energy and dedication
come from?"

"We took those down

Lower ISO

rating a

result of

group effort


T hat Lake City now
boasts a Class 3
Insurance Services
Office rating is wel-
come news for many
homeowners. That designation
shows a progressive drop from
a Class 5 two years ago to a
Class 4 in 2008, and could mean
savings on insurance premiums
for those residents whose carri-
ers take the rating into account
when adjusting premiums.
On the surface, it appears
that this improvement is
driven by the Lake City Fire
Department. It is undeniable
that upgrades there in response
times, personnel numbers and
equipment factored largely in
the rating adjustment.
But a low ISO rating is not
based on local fire department
criteria alone. A city also earns
or subtracts points for its water
distribution and collection, its
911 resources and the avail-
ability of ancillary emergency
resources - or in Lake City's
case, the Columbia County Fire
Department.
Overarching all of these
things is a city governing body
prescient enough to fund such
vital resources.
Like the response to any
emergency situation, it was
through a group effort that
Lake City achieved this recent
milestone. A well-done is
deserved by all involved for
crafting a safer, more fiscally
conservative community.

HIGHLIGHTS
IN HISTORY
Today is Friday, July 10,
the 191st day of 2009.
There are 174 days left in
the year. Five hundred years
ago, on July 10, 1509, French
theologian John Calvin, a
key figure of the Protestant
Reformation, was born Jean
Cauvin in Noyon, Picardy,
France.
On this date:
* In 1890, Wyoming became
the 44th state.
* In 1919, President
Woodrow Wilson person-
ally delivered the Treaty
of Versailles to the Senate,
and urged its ratification.

GOP should back off on Sotomayor


Message to GOP:
On Sotomayor,
give it up.
With
Judge Sonia
Sotomayor's Senate confirma-
tion hearings set to begin next
week, Republicans are still
peering under every pillow in
Washington, seeking desper-
ately to uncover controversial
issues she has supported and
stands she has taken to use
against her during those hear-
ings. Most of the media atten-
tion on Sotomayor's record has
been on her decision in a civil
rights case the Supreme Court
recently overturned.
The justices ruled in favor of
white New Haven firefighters
who lost promotions when the
city threw out a test it used on
which to base promotions. The
test was thrown 6ut because
only one Hispanic and 19 whites
(the plaintiffs in the case)
scored well enough to merit
promotions. No blacks did.
Sotomayor, as a member of
a U.S. Court of Appeals panel,
ruled the other way. But that
ruling, controversial as it may
have been a'decade or more
ago, has not stirred up a fire-
storm of criticism from white
men who believe they're being
denied equality in promotions
due to affirmative action. The
potency of that issue has wilted
over time.
Wily GOP strategists are real-
izing her position in that case is
a nonstarter and are moving on,
recognizing they stand to lose
more than they may gain if they
take on a well-liked Latina nomi-
nee -- one who is politically
moderate to boot.
In the 1990s, President
George Bush made inroads
into the Latino vote by backing
a form of amnesty for illegal
immigrants. Then last year,
i

President Obama did a thor-
ough job of wooing Hispanic
voters back into the Democratic
fold. When GOP leaders do the
numbers, they realize they can
ill afford to lose more Hispanics
to the Democratic Party than
they already have. They are
finally realizing that attacking
Sotomayor, especially on her
ruling in a race case, will cost
additional Hispanic support in
the next election.
Other GOP senators have
faulted Sotomayor for her
stance on gun rights - she sup-
ports certain restrictions on gun
ownership and has stated that
the Second Amendment bars
the federal government from
passing gun control legislation
but not the states. With many
Democrats having caved on gun
control, the president included,
that, too, is not the hot button
issue it was several elections
ago.
In addition, while Sotomayor
was not exactly a household
name before Obama nominated
her to the Supreme Court, the
more Americans learn about
her, the more they seem to like
her. A McClatchy Newspapers
poll released last month ques-
tioned voters on their feeling
about Sotomayor and the GOP
effort to block her nomination.
While 55 percent remained
unsure of their feelings toward
Sotomayor as a nominee (prob-


ably because they didn't know
who she was or weren't closely
following her judicial record)
37 percent said they would
feel "less favorable" toward
Republican senators if they
"overwhelmingly oppose" the
president's Supreme Court pick.
As I've mentioned, much has
been written and said about
Sotomayor's support among
Hispanics. Less has been writ-
ten and said about an even
larger, more important group
of voters who could also see
an attack on Sotomayor as an
attack on themselves. Census
data reveal women represent
50.7 percent of the U.S. popula-
tion. Hispanics comprise one in
six Americans or just fewer than
47 million, versus more than
150 million women.
Not only will Sotomayor
be the first Hispanic on the
Supreme Court, if she is con-
firmed. She will also be the
second woman, replacing
retired Justice Sandra Day
O'Connor,.whose seat former
President Bush filled with a
man. She would be joining,
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
,'who was appointed after
Justice O'Connor, but who has
remained on the bench and
been quite vocal about her dis-
pleasure being the only female
justice. If Republicans wage
war on Sotomayor's nomina-
tion, they reinforce their base.
- white males and Christian
Evangelicals who tend to be
quite conservative politically.
But they lose an opportunity to'
open the tent and lure in more
voters whose support they
sorely need.

People love Sarah Palin
or they love to hate
her. Now the lovers
and the haters dis-
agree on her future,
since she's said she'll step down
as governor of Alaska: Either
she's finished in politics or she
is shrewdly preparing for a
comeback.
Palin rode into national
politics with grit and brass and
shot some life into the strug-
gling presidential campaign of
Republican John McCain. Love
her or hate her, you can't say
she didn't liven up the race. The
mainstream media didn't think
she was ready for Washington
and they let her know. Her
limited experience and lack of
knowledge about national and
international issues gave pause


even to people who liked her.
Conservatives admired her
gumption and values, even if
they wished she had benefited
from a little more seasoning
before running for vice presi-
dent.
The attacks on her and her
family didn't let up even after
she and McCain lost. In some
cases they got meaner. Sift
through the Internet sludge if
you want to see the really ugly
stuff. It wasn't fair and it wasn't
right what happened to her.
The ugliness matched what
was hurled at Hillary Rodham
Clinton when she arrived in
Washington.
But if Palin wants to remain
an influential person on a
national level, she will have to
stop taking the personal attacks


so personally. Easy to say, of
course, but there is no alterna-
tive for those who want to be
'out front.
Now she is going to have
another name thrown in her
face: quitter. She is walking
away from a job she begged vot-
ers to give her.
Still, Palin isn't likely to disap-
pear like an Alaskan wildflower
with the first snow. She could
make another run at politics,
go on a speaking tour to make
money or launch her own talk
show. A political comeback
won't be easy. Then again, just
the other day, she was a hockey.

Bringing

morality to

the bench

I n September 2001, Judge
Sonia Sotomayor, now
a nominee to the U.S.
Supreme Court, intro-
duced Justice Antonin
Scalia at a conference on legal
ethics at Hofstra Law School in
New York.
Sotomayor repeated an
often-told tale about a meeting
between Justice Oliver Wendell
Holmes and Judge Learned
Hand, the leading legal minds
in the early part of the 20th
century. After lunch, Holmes
started to drive off. Hand,
realizing Holmes had left his
umbrella, ran after him calling,
"Do justice, Sir, do justice!" in
that peculiar manner of speech
a century ago.
Holmes, hearing this,
stopped his carriage, respond-
ing: "That is not my job. My
job is to apply the law."
The quip illustrated the bal-
ancing act between morality
and justice. Judges, to do their'
jobs well, she commented,
need moral insight into under-
standing how to apply the law.
'Lately, she has been at the
receiving end of criticism for
not buying into a myth that
personal experience doesn't
account for anything when it
comes to judging. In the old
fashioned way of thinking,
everyone is just an object. Your
personal stort really doesn't
matter that much. It's like her
MP3 doesn't play on their 78-
rpm player.
Consequently she has been
dogged' by some gotTcha criti-
cisms when someone else's
personal perspective .doesn't
match hers.
It seems that her detractors
- excluding misogynists and
xenophobes - are the ones
who dream of ideological puri-
ty, as if the law is like a Betty
Crocker recipe book. All of the
answers are already known; ifs
just a matter of coming up with
new appetites.
But, as we know, most
things are not like that. Take,
for example, the 54 Supreme
Court split on the New Haven
firefighters case.
New Haven was in a
damned-if-you-do (nullify a
civil service exam which had
an unfair testing method) and
damned-if-you-don't. When
the case reached the Second
Circuit Court, Sotomayor
voted with the majority that
the city had the right to nullify
the exam. The U.S. Supreme
Court reversed that decision
and voted for damned-if-you-
don't.
Economist Teresa
Ghilarducci says a flaw in the
Supreme Court decision is the
assumption that New Haven's
testing is an objective way to
determine competency. Justice
Ruth Bader Ginsberg even
pointed out in her dissent from
the majority that New Haven
ignored "substantial evidence
of multiple flaws in (the) tests."
Better tests are known, as
for instance in neighboring
Bridgeport, Conn.
But when it comes to
Sotomayor, portraying her as
if she was on the "losing" side,
applies a very juvenile mea-
sure for sizing up a formidable
person.
Little is gained playing
that zero-sum game where
something in her disfavor is a
. detractor's gain. The judiciary
is about the muscle behind the
quality of the ideas going into
decision-making.

Man given death sentence goes free


By BRENT KALLESTAD
Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE - The
Florida Supreme Court on
Thursday threw out the con-
viction and death sentence
in a .1994 Broward County
robbery-slaying, meaning
the defendant will go free.
The justices ruled that
evidence presented at the
trial of Herman Lindsey was


legally insufficient to sup-
port his conviction and that
the case was totally based
on circumstantial evidence.
"The state failed to pro-
duce any evidence in this
case placing Lindsey at the
scene of the crime at the
time of the murder," the high
court wrote in a unanimous
opinion. 'The evidence here
is equally consistent with
a reasonable hypothesis of


innocence."
The 36-year-old Lindsey
was charged with killing
Joanne Mazollo in, an April
1994 pawn shop robbery.The
woman's body was found in
the back room of the store
where she worked.
Lindsey was charged with
Mazollo's death in 2006, 12
year after the crime and 11
years after he had given a
taped statement to police


in which he implicated an
acquaintance in Mazollo's
death.
After his conviction,
Lindsey sought to persuade
jurors to spare him from the
death penalty. The prosecu-
tor should have cross-exam-
ined Lindsey about his child-
hood during that phase of
the case, but instead asked
him about the details of the
crime.

search for plane crash


Associated Press

PORT RICHEY - The
Coast Guard ended its
search Thursday for five
people aboard a small plane
that crashed off Florida's
Gulf Coast, saying it
believes all are dead.
The search ended 24
hours after the Coast Guard
began looking for a twin-
engine Cessna that dropped
off the radar en route to
Tampa on Wednesday
afternoon. Rescuers had
searched throughout the
night for survivors, find-
ing human remains among
a two-mile debris field.
Petty Officer Rob Simpson
described it as a "fairly cata-
strophic wreck."
The remains were taken
to the Pinellas County
Medical Examiner's
Office for identification.
Authorities could not say
whether remains from all
five people were found.
The plane was flying
from McKinney, Texas, to
Tampa when it went down


about 20 miles west of Port
Richey.
The Federal Aviation
Administration said air traf-
fic controllersinJacksonville
lost radio and radar contact
with the plane at 1:52 p.m.
after it reported turbulence.
A forecaster at the National
Weather Service said there
were thunderstorms and
lightning in the area at the
time, which can create tur-
bulence.
"It wasn't blue sky.
There were some storms
out there," forecaster Ryan
Sharp said. .
A statement from Quality
Powder Coating LP said
Thursday that that two of
its employees and mem-
bers of their families were
on board the plane. The
company said officials have
not gotten confirmation
from the NTSB on.the sta-
tus of those on the plane,
who included company
president Roland Schurrer
and company pilot and mar-
keting representative Steve
Barrows.

Patient's guardian

sues hospital


By LAURA WIDES-MUNOZ
Associated Press

STUART - The guardian
of a Guatemalan man with
serious brain damage is suing
a South Florida hospital,
alleging that the facility ille-
gally deported the uninsured
patient to his native country
after he racked up more than
$2 million in medical bills.
The hospital says Luis
Alberto Jimenez, an illegal
immigrant who suffered
severe brain trauma after
a February 2000 accident
caused by a drunk driver,
repeatedly said he wanted to
go home to Guatemala. The
guardian says Jimenez object-
ed to being sent back.
The trial opened quiet-
ly this week in the sleepy
coastal town of Stuart, but
the six-member jury's verdict
could influence how hospitals
across the U.S. handle long-
term care for illegal immi-
grants. Hospitals are strug-
gling under the staggering
costs of treating the nation's


roughly 47 million uninsured,
and illegal immigrants make
up an estimated 15 percent of
this group.
Jimenez's relatives in the
U.S. are seeking unspecified
damages.
On Thursday, their attor-
ney William King showed
e-mails documenting Martin
MemorialMedical Center offi-
cials' plans for returning the
patient during the summer
of 2003. None of them had
been shared with Jimenez's
cousin Gaspar Montejo, who
had become his legal guard-
ian because Jimenez was
deemed too brain damaged
to make his own decisions.
"It is not worth the risk to
send him on a commercial
flight," wrote hospital attor-
ney Rob Lord, at one point.
"I can envision really bad
publicity if things don't go
according to plan."
Montejo accuses the hos-
pital of secretly spiriting
Jimenez back to Guatemala
on a private plane accompa-
nied by staff. Meanwhile,
Montejo said the family's
attorney was frantically seek-
ing an emergency order
to halt the deportation and
appealing an earlier ruling in
favor of the move. That rul-
ing was later overturned on
appeal, laying the grounds
for the family's lawsuit The
case is before Martin County
Senior Circuit Judge James
Midelis.

round table meeting at the G8 summit in L'Aquila, Italy on


By NICOLE WINFIELD
Associated Press

L'AQUILA, Italy -. The
chasm between rich and
poor on how to address
climate change burst into
the open at the G-8 summit,
Thursday, showing how dif-
ficult it will be to persuade
the v.orld to make lifestyle
and economic sacrifices.
needcl:! to mI0 v, the planet:
from global '.\ u'iring
Presidk:nt Baracl Obania
urged emerging -ctoiii iniie
to do in:ioe to clilrb) global
warming, while the U.N.
chief' demanded developed
countries set an example and:
take more concrete steps to
redu e pollution.
Especially reluctant to'
commit to change were two
budding powers that are
just :now getting comfort-
able economically: India and
China.
Obama said industrialized
countries, the United States
included, had a "historic
responsibility" to take the


lead in emissions reduction
efforts because they have a
larger carbon footprint than
developing nations.
"And I know that in the
past, the United States has
sometimes fallen short of
meeting our responsibilities.
So, let me be clear: Those
days are over," he said.
But he said developing
nations have to do their part,
as well.
'"With most of the growth
in projected emissions com-
ing from these countries,
their active participation is a
prerequisite for ;4 solution,"
Obama said.
Two days of negotiations
between the world's major
industrial polluters and devel-
oping nations failed to make
any major breakthrough
on firm commitments to
reduce carbon emissions.
While both sides said for the
first time that global average
temperatures shouldn't rise
over 2 degrees Celsius, they
didn't set any joint targets to
reach that goal.

BEUING - A moder-
ate earthquake rocked
southwest China Thursday
evening, injuring at least
336 people and collapsing
10,000 homes, state media
said.
The magnitude-6.0 tem-
blor, centered, in "Yunnan
province's Ya6'an county,
damaged another 30,000
homes, the Xinhua News
Agency said.
Thirty people suffered
severe injuries, while the
other 305 were slightly
injured, Xinhua said.
The quake was followed
by eight aftershocks and
the provincial civil affairs
department was sending
4,500 tents, 3,000 quilts and
other relief materials to


Yao'an, Xinhua said.
Hundreds of police were
dispatched to the disaster
zone, it said.
Yunnan is a quake-prone,
mountainous region that
lies on China's southern
border with Thailand and
Myanmar. It also borders
Sichuan province, where a,
magnitude-7.9 quake last'
year left almost 90,000 peo-
ple dead or missing.
In 1988, a 7.1-magni-
tude quake in Yunnan near
Myanmar killed more than
930 people. More than
15,000 people died after a
magnitude-7.7 earthquake
in the province in 1970,
though authorities at the
time covered up informa-
tion on casualties and dam-
age amid the chaos of the
Cultural Revolution.

Busch calls out Stewart


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Kyle Busch puts in ear plugs as he gets ready to practice for
the NASCAR LifeLock.com 400 auto race at Chicagoland
Speedway in Joliet, IIl. on Thursday.


Driver upset
about last-lap
wreck at Daytona.

JOLIET, ILL. - Kyle
Busch hasn't mellowed fol-
lowing his last-lap accident
at Daytona that sent him
into the wall, and then the
infield care center- even as
points leader Tony Stewart
says all is fine between the
two former teammates.
Busch claimed Stewart
"dumped him," or, caused


him to wreck, and ques-
tioned if drivers should be
allowed to win if they cause
an accident that lets them
take the lead.
"I think NASCAR can
take a step in looking at
it, and if the. second-place
driver bumps the leader,
then black-flag (him),"
Busch said Thursday at
Chicagoland Speedway. "He
doesn't get the win."
At Daytona, Busch took
the lead on the next-to-last
lap and tried to fend off
a hard-charging Stewart.
He successfully blocked
Stewart once, but when he


tried to do it again Stewart
hooked Busch's right rear,
fender instead, sending
Busch into the wall a few
hundred yards from the fin-
ish.
Busch had no problems
with a driver bumping the
one ahead of him out of the
way if it doesn't cause an
accident.
"I gathered my stuff up
and tried to block high and,
it was too late," Busch said.
'Tony was already along-
side."

A star at Columbia High,
where he graduated in .
2001, Carter was offered
a scholarship by, Florida
State. He went through a
tough process to qualify
academically, then his
football career took off.
"I know the things I
went through to get where
I am," Carter said. "If I
had listened to things
some people said, I would


not have had the success
I have. Kids get caught
. up in not being their own
person.
'"There are people out
there who had it way
harder than I have, but
I can only speak from
my experience. There
are goals you have and it
doesn't even have to be
about football."


Armstrong is

off lead as the'

Pyrenees loom


Cancellara, of
Switzerland, leads
after Thursday.
By JAMEY KEATEN
Associated Press
BARCELONA, Spain -
A split second off the lead
with the mighty Pyrenees
looming, Lance Armstrong
now gets to see what his
rivals can throw at him.
After mostly flat, wind-
swept stages along the
Mediterranean rim this
week, the Tour de France
enters mountainous terrain
that has long belonged to
climbers.


Armstrong remained just
a fraction behind overall
leader Fabian Cancellara
of Switzerland on Thursday
after a treacherous, rain-
soaked ride filled with
crashes. Thor Hushovd of
Norway led a mass sprint
finish to capture the 113-
mile sixth stage from
Gerona to Barcelona.
The field faces a 139-
mile haul from Barcelona
to Andorra on Friday with a
grueling uphill finish - the
first and hardest of three
days in the Pyrenees.
'Tomorrow is an impor-
tant day," Armstrong said.

Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland, wearing the overall
leader's yellow jersey, stretches his back as he waits to
take the start of the sixth stage of the Tour de France
cycling race over 112.7 miles with start in Girona and finish
in Barcelona, Spain, on Thursday.


Carter hopes to bring
in a couple of NFL or FSUt
players for the camp. He,'"
will help with T-shirts and
there is a meal planned for
Friday.
'Thursday will be meet-

Michael Phelps swims in a preliminary heat in the men's 100-meter butterfly at the U.S.
national swimming championships in Indianapolis on Thursday.

Phelps erases world record

in 100 meter butterfly


By BETH HARRIS
Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS -
Michael Phelps has bro-
ken the world record in
the 100-meter butterfly at
the U.S. national champi-
onships.
The 14-time Olympic
gold medalist swam
the two-lap final in 50.22
seconds at the Indiana
University Natatorium on
Thursday night He low-
ered Ian Crocker's mark
of 50.40 set. at the 2005
world championships in
Montreal.
Phelps led at 50 meters


with a split of 23.83, just
three-tenths off world-
record pace. Known for his
strong finishes, he pulled
clear down the stretch to
beat Tyler McGill, who
touched in 51.06. Aaron
Peirsol was third in 51.30.
Phelps had once owned
the 100 fly mark for a day
at the 2003 world meet in
Barcelona. But Crocker
took it' from him a day
later, then lowered it twice
more.
"I still remember the day
at worlds when I broke it
and the next day Crock
broke it and Crock's had
it ever since," he said. "To


finally be able to get it
tonight means a lot."
Phelps' victory gave him
a spot in the event at the
world championships later
this month in Rome. He
already qualified in the 200
fly and 200 freestyle as he
continues his transforma-
tion from swimming mid-
dle distances to sprints.
Rebecca Soni, the
Olympic silver medalist,
won the 100 breaststroke
in an American-record time
of 1:05.34.
She erased the mark
of 1:06.20 set by Jessica
Hardy at the 2005 world
championships.

closed silvery-gray casket
topped with white lilies
next to a portrait of the
former Titans star. A heli-
copter provided live TV
footage as McNair's body
was taken by hearse to his
church for a memorial ser-
vice planned for Thursday
night
Jean Ryan got in line
nearly two hours before
doors opened at Mount
Zion Baptist Church for
a three-hour visitation to
say goodbye to the man
she had followed since the
NFL team moved to town
in 1997.
"I love him, and he was
a beautiful man and I will
remember not the circum-
stances of his death but
the great things he did for
the Titans and the com-
munity," she said, wearing
a Titans' pin and crying at
what she called the "utter
sadness."
Titans owner Bud
Adams, Tennessee Gov.
Phil Bredesen, and many
of McNair's current and
former teammates were
expected to attend the
memorial service.
Derrick Mason, who
played with McNair in both
Tennessee and Baltimore,
was scheduled to speak
along with Titans coach
Jeff Fisher.
Attorney Roger May,
who represented McNair


in his two drunk driving
arrests, said he didn't
anticipate anyone from the
McNair family making any
statements Thursday. With
people lined up on a hill
beside the church behind
him, the attorney said peo-
ple responded to McNair.
"They not only respect
what he did on the field but
what he did in the commu-
nity," May said.
Church officials antici-
pated up to 5,500 attending
the memorial service and
opened up overflow areas
for seating.
The Titans estimated
approximately 9,000 peo-
ple had visited LP Field,
where fans could reminisce
about his career, between
Wednesday and midday
Thursday. A couple of radio
stations were broadcasting
from the stadium where
the shop had sold out all
of its McNair merchandise
except for a few children's
shirts.
Derrick Lewis said
McNair "put the Titans on
the map.".
Lewis, wearing a Titans
jersey, said he and his fam-
ily were devastated when
they learned of McNair's
death.
Police have said McNair,
36, was shot four times
July 4 by ,a girlfriend who
then killed herself in a
condo McNair shared with


a friend.
"Myself and my family
were completely shocked
and some of us were cry-
ing because you almost
feel like you are related,"
Lewis said.
But Lewis said the
details of the killing haven't
changed his opinion of
McNair.
"I will always remember
him for the good things that
he did for the community
and the Tennessee Titans,"
Lewis said. "Nobody's per-
fect."
Arinetta 'Moore brought
her grandson, Darrien
James, 9, and granddaugh-
ter Olivia Cole, 11, to the
funeral home and said she
planned to take them to
LP Field for another pub-
lic memorial Thursday and
visit his restaurant
Moore said it wasn't
uncommon to see McNair
hanging out around town.
"I think he just blended
right in with everybody,"
Moore said.
Loretta Lang said the
details of the death should
be a private family issue
and shouldn't take away
from his charitable work.
"He's definitely going to
be missed because he gave
back like many of the orig-
inal Houston Oilers that
became the. Tennessee
Titans," she said after view-
ing the casket.

dent a part of racing and
said the two often-fiery
drivers were on the same
page following a 30-minute
conversation about the cir-
cumstances of the wreck
earlier this week.
Same page? Busch came
out Thursday and made it
seem like he wasn't even in
the same book.
Stewart declined to
address Busch's com-
ments, and said he only
was going to judge Busch's
view of the incident based
on their earlier conversa-
tion. When Stewart was
asked if his maneuver was
considered a "dump," he
said, "I'm not biting."
"Nobody wants what


happened on the last lap
to happen," Stewart said.
"Nobody wants to be in
that situation because we
all respect each other as
drivers so much."
Other drivers came to
Snioke's defense.
"I certainly would not
say that he got dumped,"
four-time Cup champion
Jeff Gordon said. "If Carl
Edwards would have said
that, I would have said the
same thing. It's not getting
dumped when the guy has
got a fender or bumper
inside you and you turn
and come across."
Added Kasey Kahne:
"It was a long way from
a dump in my mind. I'd


say they were both battling
for the win. It's Daytona,
Talladega, those kinds of
tracks you do that stuff."
It marked the second
time a crash has marred
the end of a restrictor plate
race this season.,
Edwards went flying
into the catch fence at
Talladega this spring
while trying to block Brad
Keselowski in a mad dash
to the finish.
"This isn't something
that's new to this sport,
it's more frequent because
guys are getting better at
the aspect of it and instead
of having two cars up in a
pack, now there's 32 cars
in the pack," Stewart said.


Free agent puzzle



begins to fill out


Associated Press


TORONTO - The
Toronto Raptors have con-
firmed their acquisition of
forward Hedo Turkoglu,
perhaps the most signifi-
cant free agent addition in
the team's history.
The 6-foot-10 forward was
one of the most coveted free
agents available, coming off
a season in which he helped
the Orlando Magic reach
the NBA finals.
The nine-year NBA vet-
eran appeared poised to
sign with the Portland Trail
Blazers last Friday before
Raptors general manager
Bryan Colangelo swooped
in and nabbed the Turkish
forward.
Turkoglu's agent Lon


Babby said the player
and his wife Banu were
intrigued by Toronto's eth-
nic diversity.
Turkoglu opted out of his
contract in Orlando when
the team acquired Vince
Carter from New Jersey.
Turkoglu was due $7.3 mil-
lion next season, the final
year of a $36-million, six-
year deal.


DALLAS - Shawn
Marion is headed to the
Dallas Mavericks, Jerry
Stackhouse is going to the
Memphis Grizzlies and
Hedo Turkoglu is going to
Toronto Raptors in a com-
plex deal involving four
teams.


The deal, announced
Thursday, involves five
other players, a draft pick
and cash.
Among the other pieces:
Forward Kris Humphries
and center Nathan Jawai
are going from Toronto to
Dallas; guard Greg Buckner
is going from Memphis
to Dallas; and swingmeh
Antoine Wright and Devean
George are going from
Dallas to Toronto.


CLEVELAND - The
Cleveland Cavaliers and
Anderson Varejao report-
edly have agreed on a six-
year contract that could
be worth as much as $50
million.

six miles - one involving
Yukiya Arashiro of Japan,
another involving for-
mer world champion Tom
Boonen of Belgium, one of
Hushovd's sprinting rivals.
Cancellara, a time trial
specialist, acknowledges
he's not the best climber
and his six-day run in the
front may soon end.
"What do I have to do
tomorrow? It's a good ques-
tion," he said. "It's been a
beautiful week to be in this
yellow jersey. ... I'm going
to try to defend it but I don't
know how well I can do."
Carlos Sastre, the 2008
Tour champion and one
of the world's top climb-
ers, clearly is on the radar
screen, of both Armstrong
and Astana teammate and
rival Alberto Contador. The
37-year-old Texan says the
burden falls on riders like
Sastre.
"I think the others will
attack," Armstrong said.
"We are in a position where


we can wait and watch the
others."
His Astana team is rich
with talent, holding four of
the top five spots behind
Cancellara. Contador, the
2007 Tour champion and
a world-class climber, is a
close third, 19 seconds off
the lead.
During his long champi-
onship reign on the Tour,
Armstrong always made his
mark by the first big moun-
tains - methodically gain-
ing on competitors while
keeping an eye over his
rear wheel.
Armstrong says' the
riders to watch are Andy
Schleck, who is 1 minute,
41 seconds back; his broth-
er and Saxo Bank teammate
Frank Schleck, 2:17 behind;
and Cervelo's Sastre, trail-
ing by 2:44.
"I expect Carlos to
make some accelerations,"
Armstrong said. -
Such comments are sure-
ly part of a psychological
game.
The wild card is that
Armstrong will also have
to watch Contador, who
was considered the favorite
before the Tpur began.
"I know Alberto wants to
assert himself in the race. I
don't need a team meeting


to know that," Armstrongi
said.
"If he goes and nobody
can hang with him, I'll just
stay with the other leaders,"
he added. "But I'll show up
tomorrow morning, try to
do my best,, get to -the top
as quick as I can, and well
see."
The mountains figure to
play a bigger role in this
Tour. Friday's jaunt fea-
tures the Serra Seca pass
and a finish into Artalis in
Andorra that's so tough
it's beyond classification in
cycling's ranking system.
The granddaddy - stage..
comes the day before the
July 26 finale in Paris, with
an uphill finish on Mont
Ventoux, one of cycling's
most legendary climbs.
So far in his comeback
year after 31/2 years in retire-
ment, Armstrong has
proved he can hold his own
in time trials, like the one
on opening day in Monaco,
and gain time in the flats.
The biggest question is
whether he still has the legs
to climb.
"I feel good, I feel strong,
recovering well, relaxed,"
he said. "It's been a while
since I've ridden at the front
of a big mountain stage, but
Ill be ready."


CARTER: Expecting second child

and working hard to
achieve goals.
Possibly we will sign
some autographs.
Friday will be drills day
with the campers splint
into age groups 8-12 and
13-15.
Saturday will be a fun
day with flag football
games.
"I hope we have a good
turnout," Carter said.

Carter had a year of
trials with football, but
landed on his feet.
After an injury he
returned to St. Louis, but
was released by the Rams.
He had workouts with
Tennessee, Dallas and
Cincinnati, with the first
two teams showing great
interest.
Because he played three
seasons for the Rams,
league rules prohibited
him from being placed
on a development squad
and he had to hope for
an opening on the active
roster.
'Tennessee kept calling
and updating me and my
agent," Carter said. "Dallas
tried to sign me in Week
15 and called during the
playoffs. I flew out there
for a physical and signed in
January."
Carter attended OTAs
and mini-camp with Dallas
from late March to the
middle of June. He reports
for training camp the end
of this month.
"I checked out the
new stadium and it
is nice," Carter said.


Jerome Carterholds son Jerome Carter III, 3, on Thursday.
Carter and wife Sheena (Wright) are expecting their second
child,


"That's America's Team.
Everybody knows I am
playing for them and that is
all they are talking about."

Carter and wife Sheena
(Wright) are expecting a
child to join Jerome III,
who is 3.
'Last year was a year
to bond with my family,"
Carter said.."It kind of got


me down a little bit, but
I used it for motivation.
There is more motivation
with another child on the
way and providing for my
family. If that's not enough'
to motivate a player, I don't
know what will.
"I kept in shape and. did
not get too down. I knew
that God would open a
door."

LPGA commissioner agreeable to buyout


By BOB LENTZ
Associated Press

BETHLEHEM, Pa.
- LPGA commissioner
Carolyn Bivens reportedly
is agreeable to a buyout
of the final two years of
her contract amid calls for
her resignation by key tour
players.
Sports Business Daily,
citing sources, reported on
its Web site Thursday that
the LPGA Tour board has
authorized a golf industry
executive to contact poten-
tial candidates to replace
Bivens.
The sports, trade daily
reported the tour's board
was not actively negotiat-
ing a buyout, but talks are
expected to begin soon.
Bivens is owed $500,000
per year for the final two
years of a three-year exten-


sion she signed in 2008, the
report said.
The LPGA Tour squab-
ble has overshadowed what
should be the biggest week
of the season in women's
golf, the U.S. Women's
Open, which kicked off
Thursday.
LPGA Tour spokesman
David Higdon reiterated his
statement from earlier in
the week, saying the tour
will not comment on inter-
nal matters.
He said the focus should
be on the U.S. Women's
Open and that the LPGA
players, staff and board are
working together to grow
the tour.
More than a dozen play-
ers, including top-ranked
Lorena Ochoa, sent a let-
ter to the board seeking
Bivens' resignation. In
the letter, the group said


the tour's problems can't
be blamed on the dismal
economy and a new leader
is needed, according to
GolfWeek Magazine, which
broke the story Monday.
The tour has lost seven
tournaments since 2007.
The talk in the days lead-
ing up to the start of the
championship at Saucon
Valley Country Club was as
much about the controversy
as it was course conditions.
Players at the Women's
Open have been peppered
with questions about the
letter, Bivens and the tour's
future.
Most have sidestepped
the issue, citing respect of
the USGA event.
Ochoa didn't hide her
concern for the future of
the tour and called for more
player participation in mov-
ing the organization for-


ward.
"We as players, we want
to be more involved in what
is happening and we want
to see the tour going in
a better direction," Ochoa
said Wednesday, on the eve
of the first round.
"There's not much we can
do. I believe they will do the
best for us, and hopefully
things will start, you know,
moving in a good direction,
because we are worried that
we're losing tournaments
and we want to get back on
a good track."
Suzann Pettersen
acknowledged signing the
letter calling for Bivens to
step down.
"All we are doing is
standing up for our tour,"
Pettersen told Golfweek
Magazine. "Now it's up
to. our leadership and our
board to find a solution."

South Korea's


Choi leads


Women's Open


By BOB LENTZ
Associated Press

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Na
Yeon Choi of South Korea
birdied her first three holes,
and four of her first five, on
the way to a 3-under 68
and a one-stroke lead after
the first round of the U.S.
Women's Open.
Top-ranked Lorena
Ochoa, 2007 champion
Cristie Kerr and qualifier
Jean Reynolds opened with
2-under 69s Thursday.
Hee Young Park, also of


South Korea, was another
stroke back after a 70.
Birdies were hard to
come by for nearly everyone
but the 21-year-old Choi, a
four-time international win-
ner. Only five players were
below par on the undulating
greens and narrow fairways
of Saucon Valley Country
Club.
Ochoa's round included a
birdie putt of more than 50
feet on the second hole, her
11th. Kerr hit 15 greens and
10 fairways in a round of
three birdies and a bogey.

Janzen, Stiles


share early


lead at Deere


By ANDREW SELIGMAN
Associated Press

SILVIS, Ill. - Lee Janzen
stirred some memories and
was tied with Darron Stiles
for the lead after firing a 7-
under 64 in the first round
of the John Deere Classic
on Thursday.
Janzen has not won on
the PGA Tour since he cap-
tured his second U.S. Open
in 1998, yet he's in position
after an impressive start at


TPC Deere Run.
The 44-year-old was 8
under after birdies on the
16th and 17th holes and
played bogey-free golf until
the 18th, when he hit a bun-
ker and missed an 8-foot
par putt. He was off the
course by the time Stiles
sunk a seven-foot putt for
birdie on the same hole to
forge the tie.
Kenny Perry opened with
a 68. U.S. Open champion
Lucas Glover shot 69.

DEAR ABBY


Co-workers do a double-take

at woman's radical new look


I

i


DEAR ABBY: Aco-worker,
"Marilyn," recently returned
from time off with a noticeably
different face. She said noth-
ing about it, so we didn't either
for a while. Finally, one woman
remarked to her that she ap-
peared to have had "some
work done." Abby, Marilyn
denied it!
What's considered proper
here? Should we have said
something initially about her
radically changed appearance?
We were afraid if we ignored
it she'd be disappointed. Hav-
ing spent that much money
and gone through that much
pain, wouldn't she have been
crushed if we hadn't? - IN-
QUIRING MINDS IN PAS-
ADENA
DEAR INQUIRING:
When someone has spent big
bucks on plastic surgery, the
one question that person does
NOT want to hear is, "Have
you had some work done?" If
someone has a good surgeon,
the results are subtle, not radi-
cal.
A more tactful way to have
approached your co-worker
would have been to say, "Mari-
lyn, you look wonderful - so
RESTED. That trip took years
off you ... " Then, if Marilyn
wanted to share her secret,
she could have - or just said
thank you.
DEARABBY: My husband
and I have always been active.
We're avid campers and certi-
fied scuba divers; we water-
ski and enjoy taking leisurely
rides along country roads on
our motorcycle.

way, too much going on for
you to handle on your own.

you will receive. Your at-
titude will impress and in-
spire others to follow you
into the, darkest dilemma,
'ensuring that you come
through unscathed. ***

to answer questions if you
have been keeping a secret
that is revealed by mistake.

possible to avoid getting
anyone, including you, in
trouble. Focus on personal
change. ***

and had to have an X-ray of my
spine. Afterward, my doctor
informed me that the verte-
brae in my neck are positioned
in such a way that if I'm ever
in another accident, I would
probably become a paraplegic.
My husband now wants
to sell our motorcycle and do
everything possible to "pro-
tect" me. How do I tell this
wonderful man that I don't
want to change our lifestyle?
We do not do anything danger-
ous, but he insists that we now
have to watch out for "the fools
out there." - ADVENTURER
IN ALBANY, GA.
DEAR ADVENTURER:
Frankly, I agree with your
husband. There is no denying
that motorcycles can be dan-
gerous even when the riders
are taking every precaution.
However, because you feel so
strongly about this, perhaps
you should consider getting a
second medical opinion. If the
second doctor agrees with the
first, then you and your hus-
band must decide whether a
leisurely ride in the country is
worth the risk of a lifetime in
a wheelchair, because that out-
come would affect him, too.
DEAR ABBY: I live in a
small town in Alaska. A rela-


tionship with a woman I loved
more than I have ever loved
anyone has ended. I'm left
with only pain, misery and suf-
fering.
I keep-trying to move on,
but everything I do makbs
me think of her. I have asked
friends for advice; they all tell
me to "man up and get over
it!"
It's frustrating to be told to
"get over her" and accept what
is. I know brooding isn't help-
ful, but it's a natural byproduct
ofpain. What I need to ask you
is this: Is it worth putting your
heart and soul on the line with
the likely possibility of hav-
ing them crushed? I hope so,
because without hope, then
what is there to live for? That
thought scares me more than
anything I have ever experi-
enced. - HEARTBROKEN
UP NORTH
DEAR HEARTBRO-
KEN: Of course it's worth it,
because without risk there is
no reward. I am speaking with
the voice of. experience. You
have plenty to live' for. Falling
in love is like prospecting for
gold. Sometimes you strike
the mother lode on the first
try, but most times you have
to keep digging. I don't know
how small the community you
live in is, but if it's so small that
most of the eligible candidates
for romance have been elimi-
nated, then you should con-
sider relocating.

Repossessed



Cars To Be Sold

Responsible Parties Needed to

Make Payments on Over 100 Bank

Repossessions and Overage Inventory


Gainesville, FL


Transports of used cars and -trucks
seem to be arriving daily from across the
country. Their cargo is a sore subject for
many banks, but all is not gloom
and doom.
While these cars often represent huge
losses to banks, they are often sought -
after deals for bargain hunters. But
these bargains are often hard, if not
impossible, to find. Generally, used car
dealers buy these vehicles at huge
discounts and retail them to the public
- often selling these cars and trucks for
top dollar.
But that's all about to
change. Glenn Wood, "Banks ai
General Manager of
Gainesville Nissan, has trying to u
just announced what
may be a bargain- inventor
hunter's dream. before th
"The banks asked us to Clunker,
help," he explained,
"and I think we can." goes int

"This Friday, July 10th
and Saturday, July 11th
from 10am until 8pm, and Sunday, July
12th from 11am until 6pm, we will sell
these vehicles and pass the savings on
to our customers."
When pressed for examples, Wood
replied, "Well, here's a 2008 Kia
Rondo for $7,900. Your payments are
only $148 a month. Or, a 2008 Nissan
Titan for $13,800, or $258 month."
"The banks want to put these cars and
trucks on the road," said Chris Norton,
Used Car Director of Gainesville
Nissan, "and I think they'll do just about
anything to make this sale a success."
All the cars and trucks will be clearly

e


o


marked on the window with their dis-
counted prices.
"The payments will also be clearly
marked," added Wood. "This should
make shopping for these bargains even
easier. Customers can expect to find a
large selection of vehicles and prices,
from top-of-the-line luxury cars, 4X4s,
minivans' and sport utilities, to basic
transportation. We have it all!"
Chris Norton, Used Car Director, was
quoted as saying, "We want everyone
to know that this is a first-come, first-
served sale. At these prices, the really
great buys will go fast!"
"We're staffing up for

Surg"ently this event. Trade-ins
are not a problem,

load their either. Just' bring your
ofrepayment book and we'll
SofrepoS take car of the rest."
Cash for Norton went on to say,
Program "We are confident we
ror can arrange financing
i effect." for anyone with a job,
Glenn Wood even if they've had
credit problems in the
past, as long as they
have had no repos."
Wood said, "We have a little bit of
everything to offer. I think if it can be
driven, we have one!"
Each of these vehicles has been
inspected, serviced, and will be ready
to go. Immediate delivery!
All sale vehicles will be displayed at
Gainesville Nissan, located at the
corner of 39th and Main St. The sale
'is this Friday and Saturday from 10 am
until 8 pm, and Sunday from 11am
until 6 pm.
