County budget down $2.25M


Reduction
proposal could
save 30 jobs.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia County offi-
cials began work on the
2009-2010 fiscal budget
by making reductions to
secure more than 30 posi-
tions which are threatened
by a $2.25 million reduction'
in funds from -last year's
budget.

Agency raises


Under a current propos-
al, county employees and
constitutional office staff
members will lose the rais-
es they earned last year .to
save those jobs.
Wednesday morning
county officials held the
first of at least three bud-
get workshops as they try'
to balance the 2009-2010
budget.
Columbia County man-
ager Dale William said the
meeting was scheduled so
he could get some direc-
tion from commissioners as


they attempted to balance
the budget with the more
than $2 million reduction.
Williams said the rev-
enue generated , through
ad valorem tax has been
tracking downward and the
value of the tax roll is also
going down.
He said the county will
only receive $295,000 ,in
.projected interest, which
is down from $1 million in
interest last year. In addi-
tion, the county received
$500,600 less than antici-
pated from the one-half


cent gas tax, as well as a
$500,000 decrease in the
small county surtax.
As officials discussed a
way to balance the budget,
they also suggested other
revenue alternatives': dou-
bling the court facility sur-
charge to $30 to generate
an additional $152,000;
and increasing the tourist
development tax 'from 2
cents to 3 cents to defray
landscape department
sports related costs.

By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
CARC-Advocates
for Citizens
with Disabilities
has become
a Columbia
County fixture over the
last three decades by pro-
viding a variety of services
for residents who have
developmental disabilities.
The agency's focus has
been to provide its clients
with employment skills'
and opportunities so they
can live a life as close to
normal as possible.
For the next two
months, the agency will
attempt to raise funds for
its programs during its
annual membership drive.
CARC executive direc-
tor Carol Jewett said the
annual membership drive
began July 1.
"This year our fundrais-
ing goal is $75,000," Jewett


said, noting last year's
fundraising goal was the
same amount.
CARC has a group home
where it provides residen-
tial services, an adult day
training program, employ-
ment training and employ-
ment opportunities and
companion services.
In addition, CARC


provides employment to
some of its clients through
its lawn service, House
of Bargains store and its
recycled greeting card
program.
CARC provides local
residents wh6 have physi-
cal and mental disabilities
an opportunity to work and
get training on life skills.


The organization currently
has about 50 clients, but
with the employees who
have disabilities, the orga-
nization serves about 75
people.
'"The membership
drive helps to support
the services," Jewett said.

Astronauts cut spacewalk short


By MARCIA DUNN
Associated Press
CAPE CANAVERAL
- Two astronauts cut short
their spacewalk and hur-
ried back to the safety of the
international space station
on Wednesday after a suit
problem resulted in rising


carbon dioxide levels for one
of the men.
Five hours into the space-
walk, Mission Control noti-
fied the crew that the canister
for removing carbon dioxide
from Christopher Cassidy's
suit did not seem to be work-
ing properly. Flight control-
lers wanted him back inside


quickly. That meant fellow
spacewalker David Wolf had
to go back in early, too.
Their battery replace-
ment work outside the space
station was left unfinished.
Only two of four new batter-
ies ended up being installed.
Cassidy .. immediately
headed for the hatch. '

doctor," she said. "I'm not
going to have it. I don't care
whether it's Democrats or
Republicans - they're all
alike. Never in my wild-
est dreams did I think our
country would come to
this."
Mehl said if they will
let her speak at the North
Florida 9/12 Project meet-

advantage, of it and speak


about the proposed bill.
The North Central
Florida 9/12 Project meet-
ing will take place 6 p.m.
tonight at The Vineyard
Church, 2091 SW Main

Mehl has written a two-
page letter which explains
why she 'doesn't like the
proposed bill. She said she
knows several other people
who agree with her and she
plans to have them write
letters, too.
"I am having people write


letters and I will deliver
them directly to Tallahassee
about the health care bill,"
she said, noting she will
take the letters to state
level officials.
"I'll make two trips and
do whatever I have to do,"
said, adding she planned to
hand deliver the letters to
Sen. Bill Nelson.

FORT MYERS BEACH
- A South Florida town
manager who married a
porn star last year was fired
at an emergency meeting
after the mayor and council
members learned about it.
Fort Myers Beach town
council voted 5-0 to fire
Scott Janke "without cause"
after Mayor Larry Kiker


called the Tuesday night
meeting.
Kiker said he learned that
afternoon that Janke's wife
is an adult film star, and the
elected officials took the
action a few hours later.
"At no time did we make a
judgment call on the activi-
ties of Mr. Janke or his wife,"
Kiker told The Associated
Press. "It's a matter of how
effective he becomes after


this situation. How much
disruption there is."
Adult Industry News
recently reported that
Janke's wife, Anabela Mota
Janke, goes by the stage
name Jazella Moore.
Kiker said a clause in
Janke's contract permitted
the council to fire him with
a majority vote. He said
he considers the Jankes
friends.

Briana Bracey, 18, 1468
NW Wayne Place, was
charged with child abuse
in connection with inci-
dent.
According to Lake City
Police Department reports,


at 1:24 a.m. Saturday offi-
cer Brian Bruenger was
dispatched to a call at.a SW
Zesty Circle address in ref-
erence to a possible child
abuse case.
When he arrived the
child's mother told him the
baby sitter had excessively
beat her child. She said
after she picked him up she
saw some bruises on his
hands, back and' legs. She
said she asked the child
what happened and he told
her the baby sitter spanked


him with a paddle, belt and
wet rag, reports said. .
The mother confronted
Bracey, who told her that
she had beaten the child
because he "used the rest-
room in his clothes."
Reports say Bracey also
told the child's mother that
the bruises on the child
"are what they are."
The child did not rneed
immediate medical atten-
tion, but the Department of
Children and Families was
notified about the incident.


Reports say Jones con- with robbery by sudden
fessed that he robbed the snatching and grand theft
store and sold the ring in Levy County, where he
from Chastain Jewelers to is being held in the Levy
someone he didn't know. County Detention Center
Jones has been charged on a $100,000 bond.


Local authorities plan
to file robbery by sad-
den' snatching charges
against Jones with the local
state attorney's office as
well.

"Government funding does
not cover the total cost for
providing services. The
membership drive also
helps support individuals
who don't have funding
because we have a scholar-
ship program that helps
those individuals."
CARC has been provid-
ing services to Columbia
County residents for 35


years and the agency has
held it's annual member-
ship drive for more than 20
years. First Federal Bank
of Florida has agreed to
match contributions dollar-

new and increased mem-
berships as part of this
year's fundraiser.
"It's important to have
the annual membership


drive because the annual
membership drive is our.
main fundraiser," Jewett' .
said. '"Without those funds
we couldn't provide all the
services we provide."
The organization's

OUR
OPINION


Replanting

the signs of

our times

Florida's draw as the
nation's top tourist
destination means
billboards along
its highways, and
especially the 1-75 corridor, are
as endemic as the Live Oaks
and Slash Pines with which
they share common ground. In
some cases, those billboards
are actually older than some of
their native neighbors.
It is undeniable that the pro-
liferation of signage along this
and other roadways distracts
from the natural scenery oth-
erwise available to traveling
motorists.
Left unchecked, as it seems
much of the north end of.this
corridor has been, a day looms
when it is not unforeseeable
that billboard signage could
supplant the rural beauty of our
state.
It is wise that the Florida
Department of Transportation
is now reviewing this situation.
A public meeting held in Lake
City's FDOT District Office
Wednesday was a good first
step.
But we wonder what can be
done at this late date. While we
may question the need for simi-
lar signage drawing us to the
same theme park every eighth
of a mile, these are not the bill-
boards under review. At issue
today are non-conforming out-
door advertising billboards that
have sprung up faster than the
natural vegetation they choke.
This raises the obvious ques-
tion - do we need a formal dis-
cussion to review signage that
is not in compliance with FDOT
standards?
Or is the issue that those
standards have been margin-
alized and have as a result
allowed a billboard creep along
this roadway.
FDOT is on the right path,
but it seems the correct course
on this outdoor signage would
be to solidify a position on code
and enforcement and use these
measures to protect our natural
corridor.

Will we say yes to a collectivist future?


Despite occasional
talk of pragma-
tism - of simply
doing what works
and is necessary
- the Obama administration
has veered to the far left with
a hang-the-expenses, collectiv-
ist agenda that will turn our
society upside down while likely
wrecking its economy, and here
comes the big question.
Is America going to say yes?
The issue of the moment
is health care legislation
that, according to a survey of
Democratic proposals by the
Congressional Budget Office,
would dramatically increase
health costs instead of lower-
ing them at a time when we are
clearly headed for a fiscal apoca-
lypse fostered by entitlements.
Health insurance for everyone
would be another entitlement
- a "right" extended.to every-
one by a coercive government
abusing the real rights of many
citizens in order to bring about
calamity.
But the rush to this cliff's
edge - let's pass bills by
August, shouts our president
- is hardly the only sign of a
socialist agenda. Clues have
included the federal takeover
of auto companies and banks, a
regulatory scheme that would
allow no corporate hiccup to go
unregistered, unabashed busi-
ness bashing, other plans to
extend the welfare state, spend-
ing to equal and then surpass
what you find in Europe and a
nanny-state aggressiveness that
would render us all children
answering to Big Daddy in D.C.
The excuse has been an eco-
nomic emergeficy that required
extreme but temporary mea-

sures. The facts are that the
$800 billion stimulus bill was
not needed, at least not in its ill-
considered, politically instruct-
ed, non-stimulating form; that
it's far from certain just how
temporary some actions will be
and that administration ambi-
tions far exceed recovery from
the recession. Take a look at
cap-and-trade, an industry-crip-
pling, prices-increasing idea that
will accomplish nothing without
international cooperation about
as likely as ice cubes in biblical
hell. .
The enthusiasm for all
things leftist does not end with
domestic affairs, but extends to
foreign affairs, as in assuming
that the United Nations is actu-
ally a strong, positive, reliable
force in the world, in giving
mea-culpa speeches in Europe
and elsewhere, in a presidential
presentation to Russian students
that seemed to sum up the Cold
War as two sides failing to see
things the same way, in weap-
ons negotiations that would give'
up too much, in failing to be the
least bit reflective about what's
at stake in Honduras's difficul-
ties, and even in plans for a
diminution of defense at a time
of danger. I
Buttwhen the economy is in
turmoil, that's what people focus
on - will they have a job next


week, can they pay the mort-
gage, will their health insurance
lapse? And when a president is
brand new - especially if he
is as brilliantly articulate and
as everlastingly reassuring as
Barack Obama - they give
him the benefit of the doubt.
Polls nevertheless do show the
public is beginning to have at
least some trepidation about
the direction we're headed even
though the adversarial political
reporting they must rely on has
been a whole lot less adversarial
than once it was.
If enough people get worried
enough, maybe at least some
parts of the Obama program
can be derailed before they
become permanent fixtures of
the American scene, transform-
ing us from a generally thriv-
ing, individualist, self-reliant,
liberty-loving nation to one that
supposes the extraordinary
accomplishments of free-enter-
prise could have been centrally
planned, that you can get some-
thing for nothing and that there
is no price, no oppression to be
paid for governmental extrava--
gance.
The opinion rebellion - if
there is to be one - must start
on health care reform, not
with a stance that nothing can
be done to fix a system that
malfunctions in manifold ways,
but with a determination that
Congress will work out solu-
tions slowly, carefully and in
keeping with principles that
have served the nation well.

The F-22 Raptor
fighter is expensive,
$143 million each
to buy and $44,000
an hour to operate,
so expensive that it sucks the
financial oxygen out of other,
badly needed weapons systems.
As Defense secretary Robert
Gates said, "The more they buy
of stuff we don't need, the less
we have available for the stuff
we do need."
And we don't need the F-
22. As Gates pointed out in an
extraordinarily tough speech in
Chicago, that's the opinion of
two presidents, two secretaries
of Defense, two chairmen of the
Joint Chiefs and the current top
Air Force brass.
The F-22 was conceived at the'
end of the Cold War to counter
an advanced fighter that the
Soviet Union and later Russia
never got around to building.
And the Chinese are about 15
years away firomb hiili iiione


and by then more than 1,700 of
the newer, Pentakon-preferred .
F-35s will have been deployed.
Gates wants to do the sen-
sible thing and stop produc-
,tion of the F-22, which has not
seen service in either Iraq or
Afghanistan, at the 187 already
built and spend the savings on
more pressing needs.
1ut some members of
Congress have other ideas. In
planned defense spending that
is already well north of $600
billion, a House subcommittee
plans to add $369 million as
a down payment for 12 more
F-22s, and some senators are
agitating to spend $1.75 billion
to buy seven more.
There was no better example
of how bloated and inefficient
our defense procurement has
become than the inability to get
up-armored Humvees and their
stronger and safer successors,
the MRAPs, to Iraq on a timely
basis. The F-22 is emblematic of


that inefficiency: Once it takes
root in dozens of states and con-
gressional districts it becomes
almost impossible to kill.
Gates' critics, of course,
accused him of gutting our
military preparedness but Gates,
shot back: "By one estimate, our
budget adds up to what the rest.
of the world spends on defense.
Only in the parallel universe of
Washington, D.C., would that be
considered gutting defense."
President Obama has backed
his defense chief by promising
to veto a defense bill that con-
tains money for more F-22s, as
well as several other unneeded
big ticket programs. If wd're
ever to break the cycle of spend
and waste, spend and waste, it's
vital that Gates win this battle.
Or, as he put it, "If we can't
get this right, what on Earth can
we get right?"

Sotomayor

and the

difference

this time
HOUSTON, Texas -
T he three days of
confirmation hear-
ings before the
Senate Judiciary
Committee on'
the nomination of Judge
Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S.
Supreme Court came down to
just a handful of utterances,
most notably the one about
"empathy."
A Case Western Reserve
University law professor went
so far as to say the conser-
vative sway in the majority
Democratic committee sug-
gests they "are winning the
larger war over the judiciary,
even if losing the battle over
this nomination."
To her credit, while back-
ing down on the wording,
Sotomayor did not do so on
the intended meaning of her
famous belabored statement at
Berkeley Law referring to as
"the wise Latina." She acknowl-
edged her words could be mis-
interpreted./
Yet, Sotomayor, defined by
her 17-year body of work on
the bench, is a centrist with
the value-added of someone
who has a feel for a new,
uniquely 21st century concept
that is entering all levels of
thinking.
Understanding (or not
understanding) empathy is
key, and time will tell if that
is what will make thesehear-
ings different. Unfortunately,
when it comes to the law,
with its twists and turns and
seeming contradictions, to say
nothing about the tortured
language used to explain it, is
not an easy path to follow. But
there is some enlightenment,
to glean, especially by those
who think the law is only about
rational thinking.
Antonio Damasio, pro-
fessor of neuroscience at
the University of Southern
California and head of its Brain
and Creativity Institute, says
in his 1994 book, "Descarte's
Error," that emotion and rea-
son are not separate but are
dependent upon one another.
He argues that rationality
stems from our emotions, and.
that our emotions stem from
our bodily senses.
A critical moment came in
the hearings when Sotomayor
rejected President Obama's
view that empathy could often
guide judicial decision-mak-
ing. And that is true because
few know what the practical,
journeyman applications of
this new knowledge are. We
only know that it will have
an important role to play this
century.
. Answering Sen. Jon Kyl (R-
Ariz.), she said the President
should explain for himself
"what he meant by judging" in
the context of "empathy." And
that is fair but ought not to be
interpreted as impeaching the
concept.
Perhaps she understands
what Kyle and others possibly
don't (maybe never will) that
our institutions are not per-
fectly rational in the 17th cen-
tury sense of the term and that
affects how judging takes place
in the mind and in the modern
court on key decisions.
And the reason this should
have gotten more play is
because this could become a
central focus that distinguishes
U.S. courts this century. The
one Judge Sonia Sotomayor
will be in the thick of.

For some fliers, trading miles is way to go

DALLAS - Scott Hintz
needed more miles with
American Airlines to book
a free trip to Morocco this
spring, and he had several
thousand miles from anoth-
er carrier that he thought
might be just the ticket.
The San Francisco trav-
el executive went online,
found a willing trader for
his Alaska Airlines miles
and made.a swap. In May
he was roaming North
Africa.
"I took miles out of
some. programs I don't
use and got some value
out of them," says Hintz,

Report leads to gas price drop


By CHRIS KAHN
Associated Press

NEW YORK - Oil
prices dipped Wednesday
after a government report
showed U.S. fuel sup-
plies are growing, with
American consumers buy-
ing less gas even at a huge
discounts to last year.
Benchmark crude
for September delivery
dropped 21 cents to set-
tle at $65.40 a barrel on
the New York Mercantile
Exchange after falling as
low as $63.76. In London,
Brent prices added 34


cents to settle at $67.21 a
barrel on the ICE Futures
exchange.
Energy prices got a
boost this past week as
Federal Reserve Chairman
Ben Bernanke said the
economy was improving
and companies reported
strong second-quarter
earnings.
But Wednesday, trad-
ers focused on a report
by the Energy Information
Administration's that
showed bulging supplies
of motor gasoline and dis-
tillate fuel.
The report said the


country has 215.4 million
barrels of motor gasoline
in storage, about 3 percent
more than last year. And
that was when $4 gasoline
had more people leaving
cars parked in the drive-
way. Distillates, which
include heating oil, are ris-
ing to their highest level
since the mid-1980s.
Both illustrate how
much consumers have cut
back on energy consump-
tion this year.
Retail sales for gasoline
are falling, even though
a gallon costs 36 percent
less than last year.


swaps of frequent-flier
miles - it's still in the
fine print of many loyalty
programs. But now some
are perfectly fine with
exchanges like the one that
Hintz made - they collect
a fee on every trade.
Hintz used one of the
little-known swap .Web
sites, Points.com, which
operates like a crude stock
exchange or commodities
trading floor.
Users list what they've
got - the number of miles
and in which airline - and
the number of miles they
want in another airline.
There is no charge for list-
ing, but consumers on both
ends of a completed swap
pay a fee, most of which
goes to the airlines.
. Some trades are straight-
up - 10,000 miles in one
airline for 10,000 at anoth-
er. But some traders put
a higher value on some


carriers, such as Delta and
American, the two largest.
Another site,
LoyaltyMatch.com, lets
members sell miles or use
them to buy merchandise.
Travelers say mileage
trades are a quick and con-
venient way to add miles in
a snap.
But others say they're, a
bad deal for consumers.-
Tim Winship, publisher.
of frequentflier.com, a Web
site dedicated to the use of
airline miles, says at cur-.
rent fares travelers get less
than 2 cents per mile when
they redeem their collec-
tion for a flight.
"Keep that per-mile value:
in mind," Winship says,
If you're paying a fee for
the exchange, "then you're
kidding yourself. Usually
when I look at these things,'
it ends up being a pretty-
questionable value for the'
consumer."

Votes line up to
oppose Sotomayor
WASHINGTON -
Republican Sen. Jon Kyl's
office says he'll vote against
Supreme Court nominee
Sonia Sotomayor, the latest
of his party's conservative
leaders to announce he'll
oppose President Barack
Obama's choice to be the
first Hispanic justice.
The Arizonan, the Senate's
second-ranking Republican,
announced his opposition in a
midday speech on the Senate
floor. He expressed serious
concerns about Sotomayor's
writings and rulings during �
her confirmation hearings last
week.

New health plan

S'WASHINGTON -After
more than a week of tire-

health care.
Instead of votes in the
House and Senate by August,
the best Democrats may be
able to hope for this summer
- 'is' action by the full House
by the end of the month and

bipartisan plan in the Senate

Scientists may have found HIV's 'missing link'


By SETH BORENSTEIN
AP Science Writer

WASHINGTON -
Scientists believe they have
found a "missing link" in
the evolution of the virus
that causes AIDS. It bridges
the gap between the infec-
tion that does no harm to
most monkeys and the one
that kills millions of people.
That link is a virus that is
killing chimpanzees in the
wild at a disturbingly high
rate, according to a study in
Thursday's journal Nature.
Chimpanzees are the first
primate besides man shown
to get sick in the wild in
significant numbers from a
virus related to HIV. Chimps
are also man's closest rela-
tive among primates.
And chimps are already


endangered.
But the discovery of the
.disease killing chimps may
help doctors come up with
better treatments or a work-
able vaccine for humans,
experts said.
The monkey version of
the virus that causes AIDS
is called simian immuno-
deficiency virus (SIV), but
most apes and monkeys
that have it show no symp-
toms or illness. So "if we
could figure out why the
monkeys don't get sick,
perhaps we could apply
that to people," said study
lead author Beatrice Hahn,
a professor of medicine at
the University of Alabama
in Birmingham.
The nine-year study of
chimps in their natural wild
habitat at Gombe National


Park in Tanzania found
chimps infected with SIV
had a death rate 10 to 16
times higher than uninfect-
ed chimps. And necropsies
of dead infected chimps
showed unusually low
counts of T-cell white blood
-proteins that are just like
the levels found in humans
with AIDS, Hahn said in a
phone interview.
And when scientists
looked at the particular
strain, they found that it
was the closest relative pos-
sible to the virus that first
infected humans.
"From an evolutionary
and epidemiological point
of view, these data can be
regarded as a 'missing link'
in the history of the HIV
pandemic," AIDS research-
er Dr. Daniel Douek of the


National Institute of Allergy
and Infectious Diseases
wrote in an e-mail. Douek
was not involved in the
Nature study.
Monkeys and apes
except for chimps seem to
survive the virus because of
some kind of evolutionary
adaptation, probably on the
cell receptors, Douek wrote.
The infection of chimps is
more recent so'they haven't
adapted, he wrote.
Hahn said. chimps and
people probably caught
the virus the same way, by
eating infected monkeys.
And they both spread it the
same way, through sexual
activity.
Many factors are caus-
ing Africa's chimp popula-
tion to dwindle, said study
co-author Michael Wilson,


a professor of anthropol-
ogy at the University of
Minnesota and former
director of field research at
the Jane Goodall Institute
in Tanzania. Hunting, loss
of habitat and disease are
decreasing chimp numbers
and it's hard to figure out
how much of a factor SIV is,
he said.
"It is a concern," Wilson
said. "The last thing these
chimps need is another
source of mortality."
Wilson, who spent
years observing chimps
in Tanzania as part of
the study, said that when
researchers realized the
virus was fatal and they
knew which chimps were
infected, it became hard to
watch some of their activi-
ties in the wild.


'Pay as you go' budget


bill passed by House


By ANDREW TAYLOR
Associated Press

WASHINGTON - With
the deficitsmashingrecords,
the Democratic-controlled
House passed legislation
Wednesday designed to
:.make it more difficult to
pass tax cuts or new spend-
ing programs that would
pile even more billions .of
dollars onto it.
; The legislation, passed by
a:265-166 vote, would rein-
state a "pay-as-you-go" stat-
ute that requires tax cuts
or new benefit programs be
paid for with tax increases
or cuts to other programs.
If.the "pay-go" law is broken
and new legislation adds to
the deficit, automatic spend-
ing cuts would kick in to
make up the difference.
By itself, pay-go does
nothing to address the gov-
ernment's deficit woes. The
deficit for the current year
Sis, estimated to top $1.8 tril-
lion, and the Congressional
Budget Office projects
unsustainable deficits over
the coming decade. The
pay-go measure wouldn't
force lawmakers to find
the courage to actually do
anything to stanch the flow
of red ink; it instead seeks
to prevent lawmakers from
making it even worse.
* "By insisting on offsets
and deficit neutrality, pay-go
buffers the bottom line," said
SHouse Budget Committee
Chairman John SprattJr., D-
S.C. "It is a common-sense
rule that everyone can
understand: when you are
in a hole, stop digging."
If new spending or tax
reductions are not offset,
there would be automatic
cuts in so-called mandatory
programs - although Social
Security payments, food


stamps and the Medicaid
health care program for the
poor and disabled would
be exempt and cuts to
Medicare would be sharply
limited.
The idea is that the threat
of such so-called seques-
ters would ensure lawmak-
ers wouldn't violate pay-go.
Existing rules are routinely
waived. But even if pay-go
has the force of law, it can
be waived.
The bill contains loop-
holes. For example, it allows
lawmakers to renew most
of former President George
W. Bush's tax cuts - which
many Democrats for years
have said are unfair and
unaffordable - without
raising taxes elsewhere.
Despite active support
from House Speaker Nancy
Pelosi, D-Calif., and Obama,
the measure faces difficult
prospects. Several power-
ful Democratic senators are
against it.
"Let me be clear: all new
mandatory initiatives and
all new tax cuts must be
paid, for," Obama said in
a statement following the
vote. "It is time to stop the


practice of passing today's
costs onto future genera-
tions. Pay-go was a driving
principle behind the move
from deficit to surplus in:the
1990s, and must be so again
today."
Republicans were scath-
ing in their critiques of the
plan, noting that the rules
don't apply to the appro-
priations bills that Congress
passes each year as they did
under a law in place from
1990-2002. And existing pay-
go rules aimed at blocking
the House from being able
to vote on bills that balloon
the deficit have been waived
a dozen times.
In fact, the bill is weaker
than the pay-go regime that
was put in place under a
bipartisan 1990 budget
agreement and renewed
twice. It is not accompanied
by statutory "caps" on appro-
priations that Democrats,
supported in the 1990s and
it comes as the House is
wrapping up floor action on
a set of 12 remarkably gen-
erous appropriations bills
and just months after a $787
billion stimulus package and
other deficit spending.

Solar eclipse in India captivates, frightens


By INDRAJIT KUMAR SINGH
Associated Press

TAREGNA, India - The
longest solar eclipse of
the 21st century pitched
a swath of Asia into near-,
darkness after dawn, as mil-
lions gathered to watch the
once-in-a-lifetime phenom-
enon Wednesday. A woman
was killed in a stampede at
the Ganges river in India,
where devout Hindus had
gathered to watch the
eclipse.
Millions of others,
gripped by fear, shuttered
themselves indoors. India
abounds in superstitions
and fables based on Hindu
mythology, one of which
says an eclipse is caused
when a dragon-demon swal-
lows the sun, while another
myth is that 'sun rays dur-
ing an eclipse can harm
unborn children.
Thick cloud cover over
India and China obscured
the sun when the eclipse
began at dawn. But the
clouds parted in several
Indian cities minutes before
the total eclipse took place
at 6:24 a.m. (8:54 p.m. EDT)
before moving to Nepal,


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Sadhus, or Hindu holy men, watch the solar eclipse through specially-designed viewing glasses in Allahabad, India, on
Wednesday. The longest solar eclipse of the 21st century pitched a swath of Asia from India to China into near darkness
Wednesday as millions gathered to watch the phenomenon.


Myanmar, Bangladesh,
Bhutan and China.-
The eclipse - caused
when the moon moves


directly between the sun
and the earth, covering it
completely to cast a shadow
on earth - lasted almost 4


minutes in India. In some
parts of Asia it lasted as
long as 6 minutes and 39
seconds.


In Beijing, a thick blan-
ket of grayish smog blotted
out the sky and virtually
obscured all high-rises in


the downtown area of the
Chinese capital.
In coastal Shanghai,
eclipse watchers were dis-
appointed by a light drizzle
.in the morning. Dozens
of people had gathered at
one hotel rooftop with tele-
scopes and special glasses.
But as the sky darkened
fully for about five minutes,
watchers became excited
again.
Holding a big green
umbrella and wearing spe-
cial glasses, Song Chfin
Yun was prepared to, cel-
ebrate the occasion in a
new white dress.
"Although the rain came,
I don't want to screvw up
the mood. I want to enjoy
the special day,", she said
before dancing and singing
in the rain with her two
sisters. "I don't want to.wait
until the next 300.years to
see this again."
In Bangladesh too, p5eo-
ple came out in droves.
"It's a rare moment, I
never thought I would
see this in my life," ,said
Abdullah Sayeed, a college
student who traveled .to
Panchagarh town from the
capital Dhaka to view it.

N. Korea: Clinton
fights weapons
PHUKET, Thailand -
North Korea must completely
and irreversibly end its
nuclear weapons program
or face further isolation and
"the unrelenting pressure"
of international sanctions,
U.S. Secretary of State
Hillary Rodham Clinton said
Wednesday.
After consulting at this
seaside resort with her
counterparts from China,
Russia, Japan and South
Korea on a strategy for
enforcing the latest U.N.


Security Council sanctions
against North Korea, Clinton
said there is a more positive
way ahead
if the North
chooses.
"We h ave
made it
very clear
to the North
Koreans
Clinton that if they
will agree to irreversible
denuclearization that the
United States, as well as our
partners, will move forward
on a package of incentive
and opportunities - including
normalizing relations


- that will give the people
of North Korea a better
future," she told a news
conference. Washington has
no diplomatic relations with
Pyongyang.

Zelaya supporters
rethink sanctions
TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras
- Supporters of ousted
President Manuel Zelaya are
advocating targeted economic
sanctions to pressure the
interim government to
allow his return rather than
broader measures that might
harm the Central American


country's poorest citizens.

Israel: 'Catastrophe'
removed from texts
JERUSALEM - The
Israeli government will
remove references to
what Palestinians call the
"catastrophe" of israel's
creation from textbooks for
Arab schoolchildren, the
education minister said
Wednesday. "
The reference to "al-
naqba," the Arabic'wQrd
catastrophe, as Palestinians
call their defeat and exile in


the war over Israel's 1948
creation, was inserted by
a dovish Israeli education
minister in 2007.

US troops killed in
Afghanistan blast
KABUL - A military
spokesman says a bomb
blast in Afghanistan has killed
two American troops.
Tech Sgt. Chuck Marsh
says the explosion happened
in southern Afghanistan.
Officials released no other
details, including what branch.
the troops served in or where


the blast occurred.
Southern Helmand prov-
ince is the site of the largest
U.S. Marine operation since
the 2001 invasion to oustthe
Taliban regime. Some 4,000-
Marines are taking part. They
have met little resistance'
from Taliban fighters but have
had to contend with dozens
of roadside bombs hidderi in
the region's dirt roads. . -
July has been the deadli-
est month for U.S. forces in
the almost eight-year war.
Thirty-four have now died.

'Self-inflicted
wounds' must be
avoided in league.
By JOHN ZENOR
Associated Press
HOOVER, Ala. -
Southeastern Conference
commissioner Mike Slive
says the league won't be
able to sustain recent suc-
cess without avoiding "self-
inflicted wounds," such as
NCAA sanctions and coach-
es taking aim at each other
with verbal barbs.
At SEC Media Days in
Hoover Wednesday, Slive
said he has told conference
coaches it is time to recom-
mit to following the rules.
Five years ago, the league
adopted a policy requiring
coaches to report concerns
about other SEC schools to
their athletic directors, who
then could forward them to
the SEC.
. "We have many new
coaches and this spring it
was time for a wake-up call,
a time to renew vows by
reasserting our commit-
ment to compliance," Slive
said. "Each of our coaches
and every person associ-
ated with our programs,
including fans and boost-

Armstrong falls

latest stage.

LE - GRAND -
BORNAND, France -
Alberto Contador moved
closer to victory in the
Tour de France with a sec-
ond-place finish in the 17th
stage, while teammate and
rival Lance Armstrong
dropped to fourth overall.
Contador, the overall
leader since Sunday, fin-
ished the 105-mile ride
from Bourg-Saint-Maurice
to Le Grand-Bornand
behind stage-winner Frank
Schleck of Luxembourg as
the race left the Alps.
Armstrong was more
than two minutes behind
and finished fifth in the


stage considered the
toughest on the Tour.
Armstrong now trails
Astana teammate and rival
Contador by 3:55.
Schleck led Contador
and younger brother Andy
Schleck, in third place,
across the line in their
three-man breakaway at
the end of the stage.
Overall, Andy Schleck
vaulted over the Texan
and is 2:26 back of the
Spanish race leader, and
Frank Schleck is third,
3:25 behind.
Armstrong trails
Contador by 3:55.
Armstrong is a stronger
time-trial rider than the
Schlecks, and could make
up ground in Thursday's
25.17-mile race against the
clock in Annecy.
The Tour ends Sunday
in Paris.

DEAR ABBY


Dad deciphers son's secret

through keystroke recording


DEAR ABBY: My 16-
year-old son, "Derrick,"
recently stopped talking
to me. Frustrated about
not being able to open the
lines of communication, I
installed a keystroke re-
corder on our home com-
puter. It enabled me to see
what Derrick was writing in
his e-mails. I know it was a
violation of his privacy, but
I was afraid and didn't know
who else to ask what was
going on.
I learned that Derrick
has gotten his girlfriend
pregnant. They are discuss-
ing various options, and he
is thinking about running
away from-home.
How can I help my son
through this, having gained
this information in an un-
derhanded way? If I reveal
how I learned about this, I
will lose his trust forever.
But if I don't help him, I
don't know what will hap-
pen. Please help me. - SPY
DAD IN TEXAS
DEAR SPY DAD: You
may not have to tell Derrick
how you got the informa-
tion. You are his father. Sit
him down, tell him you love
him, that he's the most im-
portant thing in this world
to you and that you're wor-
ried sick because he has be-
come secretive and uncom-
municative. Tell him that if
he's in any sort of trouble
he won't be punished or
lectured to and that you will

do whatever it takes to help
him. And do not let him get
up until he has finally told
you what is wrong. '
DEAR ABBY: Why is
President Barack Obama
considered to be African-
American? Isn't he bi-ra-
cial? - WONDERING IN
GOLDSBORO, N.C.
DEAR WONDERING:
He is both. The term Af-
rican-American is used
in this country as a label
that describes skin color
- although in President
Obama's case he is literally
African-American because
his father was an African
from Kenya, and his moth-
er was an American from
Kansas. However, the term
bi-racial is equally accurate
because it describes mixed-
race ancestry.
DEAR ABBY: I have
been a professional musi-
cian for more than 25 years,
playing piano in restau-
rants, lounges, stores, etc.
My problem is I have never
been able to talk and play at
the same time. I must wait
until I'm through with a
song to talk to a customer.


I know that pianists ap-
pear to do this in movies,
but those are actors who
aren't really doing the play-
ing - someone else is.
When someone tries to
talk to me in the middle
of a song, I can either: (a)
stop playing and answer the
question, making the rest
of the audience unhappy, or
(b) struggle to answer and
end up making mistakes
and, perhaps, even losing
my job.
I can't be the only pianist
with this problem. Do you
have any advice for me - and
can you print, this so people
will be more respectful to
musicians? - WAIT 'TIL
IT'S OVER IN OHIO
DEAR WAIT: I have it
on good authority, as well
as personal experience in
piano bars years ago, that
many pianists can not only
play and talk, but also play
and sing. Having made
it through a quarter of a
century at the keyboard, I
doubt you need much ad-
vice, but I'll offer this tidbit:
Post a discreet sign atop
your piano asking listeners
to please refrain from mak-
ing requests while you're
playing. You might also
consider a small metal tray
upon which they can place
their "requests."

HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Treat yourself
to something special or get
involved in an activity that
allows you to put your skills
to work. You can accom-
plish anything you set your
mind to and should not hes-
itate to contact anyone with
the potential to help you ex-
cel. ***
TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): You have to be
patient, especially with
people who don't 'under-
stand what you are trying
to accomplish. Listen to any
advice being offered and it
may spare you a costly mis-
take. Don't make a move
just yet. **
GEMINI (May 21-
June 20): Don't sell your-
self short when you have so
many options. Take a clos-
er look at what's going on
and what's being offered. A
partnership looks promis-
ing and a career change or
advancement is apparent.
Follow through. ****
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): Scale down be-
fore you end up in a costly
situation. Someone may
push you to take on too
much but, if you stick to
your own agenda, you will
stay on the right track. Opt
for a video conference call
rather than a trip. ***


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Word

LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): Something will back-
fire if you don't see matters
through to the end. Forget
about being nice or gener-
ous with your time or mon-
ey. Look out for your own
interests and be a little self-
ish if you want to get things
accomplished. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Now is not the time to
fall short on your promises.
Be forthcoming. Someone
you thought you could trust
is not looking out for your
best interests. Overspend-
ing will not buy favors or
make a good impression.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): You always land on
your feet so go the extra
mile and actually get ahead
instead of just getting by.
You may feel like being lazy
but, with all you have to of-
fer, you should be present-
ing and promoting. ****
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): You have to stay
in control or someone will
take credit for your hard
work. You may be forced to
address your contribution
in a personal relationship
you have been neglecting


lately. **
SAGITrARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Don't give
in to your desires when you
know you have to take care
of business first. Do not lose
sight of your goals or give
in to pressure by someone
you love. A trip or confer-
ence call will help you clear
the air. **A**
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): You may not
be given all the information
you need to assess a situa-
tion. Don't be surprised if
someone strays from a plan
you put in motion: Ulterior
motives are- apparent. Be
ready to change your strat-
egy. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): If you have ques-
tions, ask, but don't expect
to be told everything you
want to hear. Take the bad
with the good. Remaining
positive, will show others
that you have more to offer
than meets the eye. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): A secret mat-
ter will be hard to hide. Put
your time and effort into
your home and family in-
stead of risking everything
you've worked so harc to
acquire. You will have to
manipulate whatever situ-
ation you face in order to
win. ***

Hamlin takes break to talk about teammates, slumps, Danica Patrick and luck


In an era when quality interviews with top Sprint Cup stars
are increasingly difficult to get, some drivers will just sur-
prise you. -
During a Goodyear tire test at Atlanta Motor Speedway last
week, two of the four participating drivers - Denny Hamlin
and Kurt Busch - voluntarily spent their lunch breaks visiting
with reporters. Tony Stewart and Jamie
McMurray declined.
Busch was cooperative, even though he "I don't w6
appeared reluctant to discuss his run-in
with Jimmie Johnson a couple of days g7/1; In h
before at Chicagoland Speedway He said .J l e -
he'd talk with Johnson this week at is a pain in
Indianapolis to try and work things out.
Hamlin seemed completely at ease as he end. I const
spoke on a variety of topics. He talked
about being the senior driver at Joe Gibbs. feedback an
Racing, a position that seems unlikely
given that he's just 28 years old. life a who0
"I'm trying," Hamlin said. "I'm con-
stantly talking to Joey'[Logano] and Kyle - Denr
[Busch], and texting then during the
week and encouraging them to keep push-
ing, keep digging at it because I know it'll
get better.
"We've got good enough people to make it better," he said. "I
don't know if it's a leadership role or a responsibility role."
The team could use a steadying influence as Busch has been
increasingly frustrated with the performance of his Cup cars
despite three wins earlier this season: Busch heads to
Indianapolis on the verge of dropping out of the top 12
in points. After blowing an engine at Chicago
he's just three points ahead of 12th-place
Matt Kenseth.
"Kyle's got some issues right
now within the team,"
Hamlin said. "But
it's a slump. I
went
through it
with my
team and
had
frustra-
tions
with my
cars. It
takes
time to
get through.
We're struggling as
a team and trying to get
through it together."
Hamlin said that in his efforts
to improve himself as a driver, he's
gone so far as seeking advice from his com-
petitors, which is understandable given that
there are no long-time drivers on his team.
"I like to get feedback from my competitors,"
Hamlin said. "I talk to Jeff Gordon, Tony
Stewart and Jimmie Johnson and ask them
what they expect from me as a competitor: 'How
can I make your job easier and how can I make
my job easier so when I come up on you I won't
dread racing you because you're going to race the
crap out of me?'
"I want them to feel the same way. I don't want
to be that guy in the garage area that is a pain in
everyone's rear end," he said. "I constantly try to get
feedback and it's made my life a whole lot easier."
He points out that getting along on the race track
doesn't mean giving breaks all the time. "We race


each other hard," he said. "We're the guys you have to beat to
win the race."
Hamlin also offered encouragement to Danica Patrick should
she decide to make the jump from Indy cars to NASCAR. He
pointed out that she has improved over time as a race driver,
which is what all good drivers do.

"I'm excited for her," Hamlin said. "It's
a big opportunity for her and for
NASCAR. It works both ways.
"Hopefully she's able to succeed. You
don't want to see a driver leave a good
thing and come over here and struggle,"
he said. "It'll take a little time but she's
smart enough to figure it out."
Hamlin also expressed confidence that
his No. 11 Toyota will be in Victory Lane
soon, based on his recent performances.
He has two third- and two fifth-place fin-
ishes in the past five weeks, and he's also a
believer in the theory that luck evens out
over time.
He almost got his first win of the season
at Chicagoland, but when he and Brian
Vickers bumped on a late-race restart, it


opened the door for Mark Martin to take the win.
'"I'm due," he said. "I tried to make my own luck last week and
force the issue a little bit, but it'll come. If we keep running top
-five it'll be there." .-


Mayfield's problems

persist with new

drug test results

The Jeremy Mayfield situation continues
to get uglier as time goes by Last week
NASCAR officials were back in court try-
ing to get Mayfield's temporary reinstate-
ment revoked. They said Mayfield tested
positive again for methamphetamines, and
the court documents presented contain a
statement from Mayfield's stepmother, Lisa
Mayfield, that she saw Mayfield make and
use drugs in the past.
Mayfield, who initially failed a drug test
at Richmond earlier this year and was sus-
pended from NASCAR, told several news
outlets that his stepmother is making it all
up and that he has his own drug test
results, which show no drug use.
A name to remember
Here's a name race fans likely will be
hearing more in the future - Parker
Kligerman.
The 18-year-old development driver for
Penske Racing originally was set to run a
limited schedule in ARCA this season. But
he's dominating the series, and his last-lap
win at Kentucky Speedway on Saturday
was his fourth straight victory and his
fifth in the past six races. He's also leading
the points-standings.
Kligerman's Kentucky victory came at
the expense of Alabama short tracker
Grant Enfinger, who was leading late in
the race even though his tires were more
worn that Kligerman's.
"I knew he was going to go high. I had to
go low, but I kept getting loose at the bot-
tom and I didn't want a repeat of last time
here (when I spun out and finished 17th),"
Kligerman told reporters afterward.
Busch praises new restart rules
NASCAR's new double-file restart rules
have teams adjusting their cars' set-ups to
capitalize on the opportunities they pro-
vide, according to Kurt Busch.
He said the restarts, where the leaders
start side-by-side with the lapped cars in
the back, offer the best chances to pick up
positions at many tracks.
"You're not necessarily focused on long
runs, you focus on short runs," Busch said.
"If you can gain spots early on in a short
run, you will move up in the standings."
He said he liked the new double-file
restart rules, even if it was just after one of
those restarts that he tangled with Jimmie
Johnson at Chicagoland Speedway, a con-
frontation that led to what could be the
start of a minor feud.
"It's been a win-win all the way around,"
he said.


Kurt Busch said he likes the new
double-file restart rules despite
recently being involved in a wreck
shortly after one of those restarts.
