.Wage hike could threaten jobs


By DIONNE WALKER
Associated Press
' ATLANTA-
Afederal mini-
mumn wage
increase that
takes effect
Friday could
prolong ,the recession,
,some economists say, by
forcing small businesses to
lay off the same workers
that the pay hike passed in
better times was meant to
help.
The increase to $7.25
means 70 cents more an
hour for the lowest-paid
workers in the 30 states
that don't have a higher
minimum. It also means
higher costs for employers
who feel they've already
trimmed all their operating
fat.
"How will they absorb
the increase?" said Rajeev
Dhawan, director of
Georgia State University's
Economic Forecasting
Center. "They will either
hire less people or they
will do less business."
More than in any period
before, businesses are like-
ly to lay off employees and
reduce hours, further fuel-
ing the economic slump in
states seeing double-digit
unemployment rates, fiscal
conservatives and some


economists say.
Minimum wage advo-
cates counter the wage
'bump will keep more work-
ing poor afloat, and say
more increases are needed
to help stimulate consumer
spending and strengthen
businesses in the long run.,
It's an old policy debate
that resurfaced when
Congress passed the

9-12: Members work to increase effectiveness
Continued From Page 1A


well as its voice.
Thursday night the group
met at the Vineyard Church,
with more than 100 people
in attendance, according to
an event organizer, to lis-
ten to and to discuss ways
its members could increase
their grassroots activities
to lower taxes, work for
smaller government and
increase the organization's
effectiveness.
Robert Smith, Greater
Saint Augustine Republican
Club president, gave a pre-


sensation on having an edu-
cated and active electorate
as he spoke to 9/12 mem-
bers about activism. Smith's
presentation included tips
on how to get people to
educate their neighbors to
vote.
Smith's 'presentation
was followed by keynote
address speaker Margie
Patchett, executive director
of LowerTaxesNow.org.
Patchett said the tax bur-
den on Florida's small busi-
nesses needs to be lowered


and spoke of how many
small businesses in the
state have had to go out of
business because of rising
property taxes.
"I am fed up with gov-
ernment as usual and with
the spending," she said.
"We have career politicians
and no public servants any-
more. This government has
gone wild and you know
what, this girl's gone wild,
too."
After Patchett's presenta-
tion, North Central Florida


9-12 Project president
Tawnya Means talked about
the organization spreading
its workload among the
members.
"We're going to set up
working committees in
the four different areas
- recruitment, educate,
act and communicate," she
said. 'We want to divide our
membership up into those
four groups and give people
jobs to do so they feel like

"Around 7 p.m. the
Gilchrist CouAty Sheriff's
Office called and requested
the dive team come to the
scene to help search for
the victim," said Columbia
County Sheriff's Office pub-
lic information officer Sgt.
Ed Seifert. "We did recover
a body, regrettably this was
not a rescue operation, but a
recovery operation."


Karen Parker, FloridaFish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission spokesperson,
said the FWC assisted with,
the initial drowning dis-
patch call.
"We had two officers, an
investigator and a lieuten-
ant on the scene," she said.
She said the investigation
has been turned over to the
Gilchrist 'County Sheriff's


Office.
"If it was a boating acci-
dent, we would have taken
charge of the investigation,
but drownings are gener-
ally handled by the sheriff's
offices," she said.
The Columbia County,
Sheriff's Office Dive team
recovered the body approxi-
mately two hours after being
called to the scene.


At least three members
of the Columbia County
Sheriff's Office dive team
participated in the recovery
operation.
Reports indicate Davis
may have jumped into the
river from a tree, and pos-
sibly hit his head before he
entered the water. His body
has been sent to the medi-
cal examiner's office for an
autopsy.

Haire is accused of rob-

on U.S. Highway 90 West
on June 3, 2008.
According to police
reports from June 2008,
Haire walked into the
bank, showed a firearm and
demanded money at the
height of the bank's lunch
hour before he fled with
an undetermined amount of
cash.
Haire earned his nick-
name, "The Limping Bandit"
from witness accounts that
described the robber as
limping while running away


from various bank robberies.
Haire's right, leg is shorter
than his left due to contract-
ing polio as a child.
Haire is accused of rob-

banks, three Alabama banks,
three Georgia banks and five
banks in Florida.

WAGE: Hike stresses some employers

people who are out of work
and this is only going to
add to it."
Ryan Arfmann, who
owns a Jamba Juice shop in
Idaho Falls, Idaho, will be
cutting hours to his staff,
which is made up largely
of college students, high
schoolers and homemak-
ers who want to make a
few bucks.
"Am I going to fire
anybody, no," Arfmann
said. "But kids understand
there's going to be hours
cut."
Arfmann said he wishes
the increase was spread
out over a few more years,
to make it easier for him to
absorb the costs. He also


is concerned that he'll end
up having to give every-
body raises just to maintain
pay differentials between
employees.
"People who are already
getting paid above $7.25
are going to feel like they
need raises as well," he
said. "It's harder for me to
reward employees that are
doing well because of mini-
mum wage being so high."
Backers of the increase
say it's long overdue for
millions of the nation's
working poor. Rep. George
Miller, D-Calif., authored
the 2007 minimum
wage legislation, which
increased pay for the first
time in a decade.


"A higher minimum
wage helps working fami-
lies' budgets and results
in increased spending on
local business, which is
good for everyone," Miller
said in an e-mail.
That's a tough sell to
employers of minimum
wage workers. The effects
could be especially harsh
in the nine states -
Alabama, Florida, Georgia,
Indiana, Kentucky, North
Carolina, South Carolina,
Nevada and Tennessee
- where the pay increase
coincides with double-digit
unemployment. Fewer
workers employed, mean-
while, reduces the amount
of money in circulation.

Athletic

cuts must

be fair,

balanced

f a decision can't pass
the straight-face test, it
probably won't pass legal
muster either.
Members of the
Florida High School Athletic
Association seemed to come
to that realization, albeit belat-
edly,' last week when they beat
a hasty retreat from a previous
decision to make drastic cuts
in all high school varsity sports
except ... wait for it, football and
cheerleading.
The cutbacks were necessi-
tated by budget problems. But
in opting to wield a machete
instead of a scalpel, the FHSAA
seemed oblivious to the Title IX
implications of its decision.
Title IX being the federal law
that mandates gender equity in
school sport programs. Some
36,000 boys participate in high
school football in Florida. Just
3,000 girls are involved in com-
petitive cheerleading.
Not surprisingly, a lawsuit
was filed challenging the cut-
backs.
That's where the FHSAA
failed the straight-faced test:
It contended that football is
indeed a coed sport, because
three Florida girls played foot-
ball last year.
No, seriously.
Apparently that response
failed to impress the U.S.
Department of Justice, which
last week filed a brief support-
infig the lawsuit. Recognizing
the handwriting on the wall,
the FHSAA board held a spe- .
i4ll meeting Wednesday and
rescinded the decision on a
15-0 vote, ostensibly on the
ground that it's not worth the
cost and effort of defending the
decision in court
', Of course, the budget prob-
lems aren't going to go away.
This decision effectively leaves
it to individual school districts
to decide which sports to
reduce and which to maintain.
No doubt, football will still be
the last sport to go in most
cases.
But at least the FHSAA's
clumsy retreat may serve
notice to school superinten-
dents and principals as they
make their own decisions
regarding sports reductions.

Dearly departed - but not too far


You would think that
between the high
cost of land and the
vigilance of hom-
eowners' associa-
tions that this trend won't take
off, but The New York Times is
reporting that home burials are
a growing alternative to a con-
ventional funeral.
The paper cited the case of
a New Hampshire family who
buried their 93-year-old father
on his farm in a coffin they had
made themselves. It couldn't
have been at cost because
the old gentleman went to his
reward in a Harrods tweed jack-
et and Brooks Brothers tie.
Fewer and fewer of us have
farms and I'm sure agribiz
doesn't want us sneaking onto
their massive cornfields with
relatives whose time has come
but, really, a grave doesn't take
up all that much space.
I had friends who lived on
a street where an immigrant
family of some exotic ethnicity
buried a child in their postage
stamp of a front yard. They
weren't at all furtive about it.
The grave was topped by a-
neatly shaped mound about
three feet high and a cross
that had the boy's picture on
it. Eventually some official
came around and explained
gently that the city didn't really
allow this sort of thing and the
remains would have to be relo-
cated to a proper cemetery. But,


Dale McFeatters
mcfeattersd@shns.com
in retrospect, it was an instruc-
tive example of what could be
.done with very little space.
At one time every small town
and church had its own grave-
yard for residents and parishio-
ners, but small towns are disap-
pearing and the mega-churches
need the space for parking.
Perhaps garden apartment com-
plexes and townhouse subdivi-
sions could set aside land for
do-it-yourself burials rather than
the way they put aside allot-
ments for vegetable gardening.
Like so much else, home buri-
als may be driven by the reces-
sion. The Los Angeles Times
reports that more and more
bodies are going unclaimed in
the area because relatives can't
afford to give them a funeral.
Private cremations cost about
$1,000 and burial in a simple
grave an average of $7,300, the
paper said.
A simple burial in the back-
yard won't do much for the
resale value of the house, but
short term, it's much easier on
the wallet. And if you don't trust


yourself to build a coffin that
will hold together from, say, the
living room to just beyond the
patio, there's a solution for that,
too.
The New York Times reports
that coffins can be ordered
from woodworkers on a pre-
need basis and, pending that
unhappy time, "they double as
bookcases, entertainment cen-
ters and coffee tables until they
need to be used." Not to be too
macabre about it, but do think
twice before calling a coffin a
"home entertainment center,"
especially in the presence of an.
ailing loved one..
The thing about a profes-.
sional funeral director is that
you pretty much know what
you're getting - coffin, flowers,
hearse, etc. But with a home
burial you're relying on family,
and if your relatives can't pull
off Thanksgiving or Christmas
without feuds and recrimina-
tions you might want to think
twice about leaving yourself
in their hands. They may fight
over your corpse or, worse,
dump you on some distant
kinfolk's porch in the middle of
the night.
With home burials as with so
much else, if you want it done
right, you're best off doing it
yourself.

OTHER OPINION

Reintroducing religion in Russia's schools


ussia, which was
officially atheist for
most of the 20th
century, is about
to introduce reli-
gious instruction in the public
schools.
Students can choose among
four religions - the Russian
Orthodox Church, Islam,
Buddhism or Judaism. Or they
can take a survey course of all
four or opt for a course in secu-
lar ethics. Conspicuously absent
are Roman Catholicism and the
Protestant faiths.
The courses will initially be
offered in 12,000 schools in
18 regions and then expanded
nationwide in 2012.
Since the Soviet Unidn col-
lapsed in 1991, the Russian


Orthodox Church has vigor-
ously lobbied to have its religion
in the public schools. Former
President Vladimir Putin period-
ically appeared to embrace the
church; particularly its national-
ist associations.
The governments of Putin
and his successor, Dmitry
Medvedev, have stressed the
importance of a singular identi-
ty. One Orwellian aspect of that
is a move to make it a crime
to deny or distort the Soviet
Union's role in winning World
War II; in other words, to depart
from official history.
Teaching religion in the
schools is not without con-
troversy in Russia. While the
majority of Russians are nomi-
nally Orthodox, the Associated


Press says only about 5 percent
are observant believers.
In announcing the plan,
Medvedev seemed to acknowl-
edge the sensitivity of the issue.
Addressing a group of religious
leaders at his residence, he
stressed the "fundamental
importance" of the principle of
separation of state and religion,
and added, "Any coercion, pres-
sure will be absolutely unaccept-
able and counterproductive."
These classes will be a test
of just how much damage
communism's desire to drive it
completely out of public life did
to organized religion, and in rec-
onciling competing claims, the
classes will be a tricky balanc-
ing act for the schools.

America

losing the

long war

n 1993, R. James
Woolsey, about to
become President Bill
Clinton's first director
of Central Intelligence,
remarked to a Senate commit-
tee on the defeat of interna-
tional communism: "We have
slain a large dragon." He then
added: "But we live now in a
jungle filled with a bewildering
variety of poisonous snakes.
And in many ways, the dragon
was easier to keep track of."
Years later, we still seem
bewildered. America's military
has demonstrated astonish-
ing ingenuity and adaptability.
But have other instruments of
government power risen to the
challenges posed by interna-
tional jihadism?
In his new book, 'Winning
the Long War," Ilan Berman,
vice president for policy at
the American Foreign Policy
Council, makes a persuasive
case that they have not, that
the United States instead has
lost "the initiative on the domi-
nant battlefields of today's con-
flict ideology, strategic com-
munications, economics, law
and development." Regaining
the initiative, he urges, should
be among the highest priori-
ties of the new administration.
A large part of the problem
may stem from a failure of
imagination as Woolsey also
has suggested. Hezbollah uses
a truck bomb to attack the U.S.
Marine barracks in Beirut in
1983 but no American official
imagines - or takes serious
steps to prevent - terrorists
from using passenger planes
to inflict damage on a grander
scale.
Another example: In 1979,
Iran's revolutionary rulers
promised "Death to America."
Nevertheless, throughout
the 1980s, Iranian students '
were welcomed to American
universities where they were,
taught the skills necessary
to build nuclear weapons and
the missiles to deliver them.
Technolytics Institute, a U.S.-
based think tank specializing
*in cyber security, ranks Iran
as one of the top five cyber-
threats in the world. In many
instances, these experts, too,
were trained in the United
States.
One former American offi-
cial told me: "I'd guess that
about a third' of all the Iraniahs
I gave visas to in the '80s were
destined for a career in com-
puter sciences. Add in those
doing physics, math, chemis-
try, and other hard sciences,
you had another third. And
many of these folks were going
to really good universities."
And neither have American
policymakers fought well on
the battlefield of ideas. Berman
observes that since the end of
the Cold War, U.S. strategic
communications has "suffered
death by a thousand cuts,"
and that the current system is
plagued by "systemic dysfunc-
tions."
"If we are to stem the tide
of Islamic radicalism, then
we must do more than simply
continue down the path we are
currently on," notes former
House Speaker Newt Gingrich
in the foreword to Berman's
book. First and foremost, win-
ning the long war will require
re-thinking the conflict being
waged against the West, and
learning how to utilize non-mil-
itary instruments of national
power much more effectively
than we have done to date.

New jobless claims up, total rolls fall June home sales rise


By CHRISTOPHER RUGABER
AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON - The
number of newly laid-off
workers seeking jobless
benefits rose last week,
though the government
said its report again was
distorted by the timing of
auto plant shutdowns.
Unemployment insurance
claims have declined steadi-
ly since the spring, but most
private economists and the
Federal Reserve expect
jobs to remain scarce and
the unemployment rate to
top 10 percent by year-end.
Elsewhere, the housing
market showed more signs
of life as sales of previously
occupied homes rose for
the third straight month
in June, according to the
National Association of
Realtors. That helped push
the Dow Jones industrials
above 9,000 for the first
time since early January.
The Labor Department
said Thursday that its tally

the timing of auto plant shutdowns.


ployment insurance rose
by 30,000 to a seasonally
adjusted 554,000. That' was
above analysts' estimates of
550,000.
The increase follows two


straight weeks of sharp
drops largely because auto-
makers didn't lay off as
many workers as expected
in early July. General Motors
and Chrysler temporarily


shut down many of their
plants earlier than usual
this year, in May and June,
after filing for bankruptcy
protection and restructur-
ing their companies.
A department analyst said
the government's seasonal
adjustment process expect-
ed claims to drop sharply
last week, after the normal
pattern of auto layoffs was
complete. But that didn't
happen, causing seasonally-
* adjusted claims to rise.
Still, some economists
saw positive sighs in the
report. The four-week
average of claims, which
smooths out fluctuations,
dropped to 566,000, its low-
est level since January. :
'The trend in jobless
claims is still downward,"
Joseph Lavornga, chief
U.S. economist at Deutsche
Bank, wrote in a note to
clients.
But Lavornga also said
the unemployment rate
likely will keep rising as
long as initial claims remain
above 400,000.


Dems show division as health care bill stalls


By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR
Associated Press

WASHINGTON , -
Democratic divisions in
Congress stalled President
Barack Obama's health
care overhaul Thursday,
with one frustrated sena-
tor urging his colleagues
to move faster and a mem-
ber of the House leadership
suggesting lawmakers can-
cel their August vacation to
finish a bill.
"It's time for them
to fish or cut bait," Sen.
Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, said
of members of the Senate
Finance Committee, which
has struggled to come up
with a bipartisan bill to ful-
fill Obama's goal of expand-
ing coverage to millions
who lack it and containing
rising costs.
Harkin said the panel has
waited too long and should
push out a bill with as much
support as it can get.
The second-ranking
Democrat in the Senate,
Dick Durbin of Illinois,


hinted it would be tough to
complete the work before
August.
"Count the days," he
said. "Either we're going to
go into overtime or face the
prospect of doing it after
August."
In the House, Democratic
leaders struggled to win
over rebellious moderates
and conservative rank-and-
file party menibers who are
demanding changes to the
bill. The dispute has forced
Energy and Commerce
Committee Chairman
Henry Waxman, D-Calif.,
to postpone work on the
legislation for three straight
days while he negotiates.
Waxman's committee
is the last of three House
panels trying to finish the
legislation.
Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C.,
the third-ranking House
Democrat, said a Thursday
morning, 90-minute meet-
ing of the leadership
was particularly conten-
tious. He said lawmakers
should abandon plans for


their monthlong break if
the House hasn't passed a
health care bill.
"We must stay here and
get this thing done," he said
at a news conference. "I feel
very strongly, about that.
... I think it will affect our
standing with the American
people if we don't do this."
Obama's ambitious time-
table of votes in the House
and Senate before the
August recess continues to
slip.
The president traveled to
Ohio Thursday to deliver
a fresh appeal for revamp-
ing the nation's $2.4 tril-

AP Real Estate Writer

WASHINGTON - The
U.S. housing market has
started to recover from the
most far-reaching crisis
since the Great Depression,
data released Thursday
shows.
Sales of previously occu-
pied homes rose for the
third month in a row in June,
the National Association
of Realtors reported. That
hasn't happened since early
2004, during the boom.
"The turnaround in the
housing market appears
finally to be here and
indeed may be gaining
some speed," wrote Joel
Naroff, president of Naroff
Economic Advisors Inc.
Stocks jumped on the
news, with the Dow Jones


industrial average rising
above 9,000 for the first
time since early January. *
Home sales rose 3.6 per-
cent to a seasonally adjusted
annual rate of 4.89 million
last month, from a down-
wardly revised pace of 4.72
million in May. Sales were
up in all four regions of the
country.
It was the highest level of
*sales since last October and
beat economists' expecta-
tions. Sales had been expect-
ed to rise to an annual pace'
of 4.84 million units, accord-
ing to Thomson Reuters.- In
another encouraging sigi,
the share of foreclosures
on the market is shrink-
ing. About one out of three
homes sold in June was
foreclosure-related, down
from nearly half earlier this
year.

Hurricane season off to slow start


Associated Press
HOUSTON - The 2009
hurricane season has been
off to a slow start, but
experts say the real activity

overall season.
A maturing El Nino in the
Pacific Ocean, which tends
to depress storm activity by
20 to 40 percent, makes the
outlook for the rest of the
season look promising.
But forecasters say it's no
time to relax and El Nino
years can still produce
destructive storms.

Bank-burn is like a sunburn, only worse. Customers are experiencing
the burn and turning red all over town. It starts when you open an
account with branches from a big, out of town bank. At first,
everything seems warm and friendly, just like a day at the beach. But
in just a short time they will start raising fees, boosting loan rates,
and implementing user fees on everything except breathing the air.

Stay out of the heat and do your banking with Peoples State Bank.
The people here are not only helpful and friendly, but you see the
same faces every time you visit and that's.pretty "cool." You won't
get bank burned here. Now That's Banking!

, Analysis: Neglected National Mall languishes


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif. (right) watches as Rep. Mike
Ross, D-Ark. (left) speaks to the media, with Rep. Bart
Gordon, D-Tenn., after a Blue Dog Democrats meeting
Tuesday with President Barack Obama at the White House.


Blue Dogs show teeth


By LAURIE KELLMAN
Associated Press
. WASHINOTON -
Conservative-leaning Blue
Dog Democrats are enjoy-
ing a power surge like no
other in their 15 years,
forcing President Barack
Obama and their own party
leaders to deal with their.
demands for cost cuts and
tax restraints in overhaul-
ing health care.


The evidence is every-
where these days: Polls
show the public shares
their concerns about the
cost of Obama's plan to
insure all Americans who
seek coverage.
Obama himself has spent
valuable presidential time
in private talks with these
Democrats and in near-daily
appeals for the public to
prod Congress into action.


By BRIAN WESTLEY and
BRETT ZONGKER
Associated Press
WASHINGTON -
Crumbling sidewalks near
the Jefferson Memorial
are sinking into. the Tidal
Basin. Reflecting pools are
filled with green, smelly
water. And millions of visi-
tors have trampled the soil
into virtual concrete where
grass can't grow.
The National Mall is
in danger of becoming a
national disgrace.
"It does not deserve
the name 'National Mall,'"
said Del. Eleanor Holmes
Norton, the city's nonvoting
member of Congress. "We
ought to call it something
else until it looks decent."
The Obama Administra-
tion recently steered $55
million in economic stimu-
lus money toward repairs,
but Interior Secretary Ken
Salazar says that's only a
down payment on the near-
ly $400 million needed to
fix up a national park that

In this photo from May 9, a group of people do yoga on the
National Mall near the Washington Monument in Washington.
The mall is often referred to as America's 'front yard.'
Crumbling sidewalks near the Jefferson Memorial are sinking

draws more visitors than
Yellowstone, the Grand
Canyon and Yosemite com-
bined.
An Associated Press analy-
sis of congressional spend-
ing since 2005 found the


mall has been at a disad-
vantage in competing for
extra funds doled out by
lawmakers, compared with
sites that are represented
by powerful members of
Congress. The mall is in


Washington, D.C., which
has no vote in the House or
Senate.
Last year, when dozens of
ducks and ducklings died of
avian botulism because the
water in a mall pool near
the Capitol was so fetid,
and as urgent repairs were
needed to stop the Jefferson
Memorial's sea wall from
sinking into the mud, the
Senate killed a $3.5 million
earmark for the mall.
Instead, funding went
to projects back home. All
told, Congress sent home
more than $181 million
in earmarks through the
park service budget last
year - an election year -
according to data compiled
by the group Taxpayers for
Common Sense and ana-
lyzed by the AP? Nearly half
that money was driven by
lawmakers who were on the
House and Senate appro-
priations committees.
Government watchdogs
say earmarks corrupt the
budget process.


BRIEFS


Obama steers new
health care focus
WASHINGTON -
President Barack Obama,
who has spent weeks urg-
ing lawmakers to embrace
his health care agenda at
White House meetings, is
focusing now on a broader
and more distant audience:
the American people, whose
qualms about his plan seem
to be growing.
In his comments
Wednesday and at sched-'
uled events Thursday in
Cleveland, the president is
speaking directly to fami-
lies about their pocketbook
and medical concerns, urg-
ing them to ignore political
opportunists and naysayers
in order to achieve sweep-
ing changes, which previous
administrations could not
attain.
"If we do not reform health
care, your premiums and out-
of-pocket costs will continue
to skyrocket," Obama said
Wednesday night, looking
past the dozens of report-
ers assembled for ,his White
House news conference and
peering straight into the TV
cameras. "If we do not act,
14,000 Americans will contin-
ue to lose their health insur-
ance every single day."

FDA offers flu
progress report
WASHINGTON -
Attention is shifting to the
world's five leading flu vac-
ciner makers: How fast are
thie' really producing swine
Ilu^vaccine, and just how
db:they plan to test that it
works?
A meeting Thursday
of the Food and Drug
Administration's scientific
advisers offers the first in-
depth public progress report
since U.S. scientists deliv-
ered the novel virus to manu-
facturers and asked them to
turn. it into usable vaccine.
- They've succeeded to
a degree. The National
Institutes of Health on
Wednesday called for a few
thousand volunteers, from
babies to the elderly, for stud
ies to see if pilot batches are
safe and protective. The first
shots should go into adult
volunteers' arms in early
August, with child studies
to follow quickly if there are
no signs of immediate side
effects.

6 shot, wounded
in drive-by attack
HOUSTON - Gunfire
on the Texas Southern
University campus wounded-
six people and scattered the
crowd at a community rally,
and police on Thursday were


investigating whether a gang
rivalry was behind the drive- :
by shooting.
People were gathered
at the event that included
a Houston rapper's perfor-
mance when a car drove by
and shots sprayed out from
the vehicle, school spokes-
woman Eva Pickens said, ,
citing witness statements to
police. The sound of gunfire
made people drop to the
pavement of the parking lot
where the rally was being
held to promote community
service and voter registration.

MUMBAI, India - An Mo

proceed anyway... ... . . .. .....
The young Pakistani gun-
man, Ajmal Kasab, unexpect-
edly confessed Monday to
taking part in the November
attack that paralyzed India's
financial capital and killed
166 people.
The court had delayed
a decision on whether to
accept his confession and
guilty plea, with prosecutors
arguing that his statement
was incomplete and accusing
Kasab of seeking clemency.
In response, Kasab said he
was willing to be hanged for
his actions.
Judge M.L. Tahiliyani
decided Thursday to accept
Kasab's confession, but he
ordered the trial to continue
because the accused did
not address all 86 charges
against him.
"The trial will proceed," he
said.

Tigers face early test during pool


play at Day One of National title


Columbia picks up
early win, but falters
late in Hoover, Ala.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.comrn
Day One of the National Select
7-on-7 Championship began in
Hoover, Ala., with pool play on
Thursday, but it was not a kind day
for the Columbia High Tigers.


Columbia started the day with a
victory over Patterson, La., 32-6, in
the first game of pool play.
It was Hoover, Ala., in the sec-
ond game of the day for the Tigers
though, and a few costly mistakes
handed Columbia a 36-23 loss.
"Boy, I tell you, you can't make a
mistake out here," Columbia head
coach Craig Howard said.- "Every
team that we're going against is a

Buehrle joins baseball's immortals


By ANDREW SELIGMAN
Associated Press
CHICAGO - Mark
Buehrle pitched the 18th
perfect game in major
league history, and
Chicago White Sox center
fielder DeWayne Wise got
the assist.
Just into the game as
a defensive replacement,
Wise robbed Gabe Kapler
of a leadoff home run in the
ninth inning and Buehrle
coolly closed out a 5-0
victory Thursday over the
Tampa Bay Rays.
Wise took over in center
field from Scott Podsednik,
who shifted to left. With


- the count 2-2, Kapler, hit a
drive to deep left-center.
Wise sprinted, jumped and
got his glove above the
fence to rob Kapler of a
home run.
The ball almost came
out when Wise caromed
off the fence, stumbled, fell,
to the ground and .rolled.
But he bounced right up,
proudly displaying the ball
for the crowd in his bare
left hand.
"I was hoping it was
staying in there, give him
enough room to catch
it. I know the guys were
doing everything they
could to save the no-hit-
ter, the perfect game, what-

said.
Wise knew the stakes.
"I was with the Braves in
'04 and I was there when
Randy Johnson of the
Diamondbacks pitched a
perfect game. So I've been
on both sides of it," he
said. "It was probably the
best catch I've ever made
because of the circum-
stances.
"It was kind of crazy,
man, because when I
jumped, the ball hit my
glove at the same time I
was hitting the wall. So I
didn't realize I had caught
it until I fell down and the
ball was coming out of my


glove, so I reached out and
grabbed it."
White Sox manager
Ozzie Guillen was happy
he made the switch.
"I guess that's our job,"
he said.

Columbia took the late lead
before Lassiter prevailed with a

"We'll continue to get better,"
Howard said. "We won't have a
high seed, but this is the best
competition that we've faced. It's
great preparation for the fall. It's a

Favre

watch

goes on

Childress has
no expectations
about QB's future.
By JON KRAWCZYNSKI
Associated Press
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.
- When it comes to Brett
Favre, Minnesota Vikings
coach Brad. Childress
knows not to take anything
for granted.
A week before training
camp opens, Childress
is still waiting to hear if
Favre will join the Vikings
as their quarterback. With
Favre still working out , in
Mississippi and reports
coming daily on his intend-
ed announcement date, the
health of his arm and even
his state of mind, Childress
said he really doesn't know
what Favre will decide to
do.
"I don't have any allu-
sions as to whether it's 'I'm
in' or 'I'm out,"' Childress
told The Associated Press on
Thursday. '"You guys would
probably say it's not a mat-
ter of if, its when. But I've'
always said he's not going
to do it unless he can do it at
the level he wants to be able
to do it at. We'll see."
With such a potentially
season-changing decision
still hanging in the balance,
one would think the coach
would be on pins and nee-
dles waiting for an answer.
Will he have a three-time
MVP under center next
season or have to decide
between unproven veterans
Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris
Jackson?
But during a 30-min-
ute interview, Childress
appeared relaxed, at ease
and somewhat bemused by
the hysteria surrounding
Favre's second dalliance
with unretirement.

The pitcher had already

President Barack Obama

lowing the 16th perfect
game since the modern era
began in 19QO and the first
since Johnson's on May 18,
2004. . ,'
Buehrle (11-3), backed
by Josh .Fields' second-
inning grand slam, threw
76 of 116 pitches for strikes
and fanned six in his second
no-hitter, helping Chicago
move within a percentage
point of AL Central-leading
Detroit.
In a 6-0 win over Texas on
April 18, 2007, he also faced
the minimum 27 batters. He
walked Sammy Sosa in the
fifth inning of that game,
then picked him off two
pitches later.
"I bought everyone
watches after the last one.
That was an expensive no-
hitter," Buehrle said. "This
one will probably be more
expensive."
Before the ninth, Buehrle

NFL to start draft on


Thursday in prime time


Associated Press

NEW YORK - The NFL
is making its already'popu-
lar draft ever more tele-
vision-friendly, moving the
first round to Thursday
night.
Next year's draft will
switch from a two-day,
weekend format to a three-
day event with the opening
round in prime time for the
first time.
The NFL said Thursday
that the first round will
begin at 7:30 p.m. EDT on


April 22. The second and
third rounds will start at
6:30' p.m. on Friday, with
the last four rounds begin-
ning Saturday morning.
"Moving the first round
to prime time on Thursday
night will make the first
round of the draft available to
fans on what is typically the
most-watched night of televi-
sion," commissioner Roger
Goodell said in a release. -
The draft will continue to
be televised by ESPN and
NFL Network and held at
Radio City Music Hall.


Over the years, it has
evolved from a mostly
unnoticed affair to a major
TV event. The draft took
place on Saturday-Sunday
from 1995-2009 and Sunday-
Monday from 1988-94.
Before that, it was held on
one or two weekdays.
A total of 39 million view-
ers watched the draft this
year.
The NFL said the first
round lasted just under 3'/2
hours in 2009, which would
,fit in neatly into a prime-
time slot.


FAVRE: Remains silent on comeback

Continued From Page 1B


"We'll be a good football
team either way," Childress
said.
Jackson and Rosenfels
both have inconsistent
resumes, leading many to
say the Vikings are a quar-
terback away from being a
legitimate contender in the
wide-open NFC.
Shortly after the New
York Jets released Favre,
the Vikings started talking
to him about the possibility
of coming out of retirement
for a second straight sea-
son to help a team with a
stingy, veteran defense and
.star running back Adrian
Peterson take a run at the
Super Bowl.
There is plenty of incen-
tive for the former Packer,


who spent 16 seasons
in Green Bay as public
enemy No. 1 with the NFC
North-rival Vikings. After
an acrimonious split with
the Packers, joining the
Vikings would give Favre
two chances to exact direct
revenge on Green Bay for
moving ahead with Aaron
Rodgers and trading him to
the Jets.
But Favre had surgery,
in May to alleviate .a torn
biceps tendon and is still try-
ing to decide if that famous
rocket arm of his, which
will turn 40 in October, can
withstand a 19th season in
the NFL.
All the will-he-or-won't-he
drama has created a cir-
cus-like atmosphere around


Childress, who prides him-
self on what he calls a "flat-
line" temperament.
He said he is not con-
cerned about the story line
being a distraction to his
players or the coaches and
said he is fully prepared to
open camp with Favre or
without him.
When asked if the uncer-
tainty is hard on the players,
Childress said he thought
that was "overrated."
"Let's be. honest. One
position it's hard on," he
said, referring to the quar-
terbacks. "Is it any harder
on them than it is on the
receivers when you drafted
Percy Harvin?"
It would be hard to imag-
ine that it is not.

DEAR ABBY


Man's popularity with kids

is problematic for parents


DEAR ABBY: I'm a 38-
year-old man with no chil-
dren. For some reason I
tend to attract the attention
of children wherever I go.
Even though I make no at-
tempt to speak to them, they
often approach me. I know
when children talk to strang-
ers it makes their parents
uncomfortable, but I don't
want to be rude to the kids.
I was recently eating at
an outdoor restaurant when
a friendly little girl walked
up, sat herself down at my
table, and began asking me
questions. I was terse but
polite. She was soon joined
by several other kids, all of
whom seated themselves at
my table.
Their parents, who had
obviously not been paying
attention, shouted at them
to "get away from that man!"
It created an embarrassing
scene with the parents telling
me I had no business talking
to their kids. The other din-
ers looked at me as though I
was some kind of pervert.
I don't want to be rude to
children, but what can I do to
prevent things like this from
happening again? - CRY-
ING "UNCLE" IN TEXAS
DEAR "UNCLE": The
parents overreacted. The
next time a child approaches
and wants to talk, ask the
child, "Did your mother/fa-
ther say it was OK to talk to
a stranger?" If the answer is
no, then tell the child he/she
must first ask a parent for


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearobby.com
permission.
DEAR ABBY: My 35-
year-old daughter, "Rhonda,"
is intelligent and creative,
but her house is a disaster.
There are clothes, books,
magazines, etc. piled on
every surface. Dishes are
stacked on her bed; socks
and paper litter the floor.
How can she feel good
living like this? The place is
becoming a health hazard.
Rhonda is caring and attrac-
tive, but she rarely dates.
Could her mess be a symp-
tom of something more seri-
ous?
Abby, I'm worried about
my daughter's chances for
future happiness, but I have
no idea how to help her.
Or should I? - WORRIED
MOM IN OREGON
DEAR WORRIED
MOM: If you're the kind of
mother who always picked
up after her children, then
this is only more of the same.
If.your daughter's disorderli-
ness is something new, then
it might be a symptom of de-
pression or some other emo-
tional problem.
When you say you are
concerned about Rhonda's


chances forfuture happiness,
do you mean you're worried
that she's 35 and still single?
Not every woman needs a
man to complete her. Have a
heart-to-heart talk with your
daughter and explain your
concerns. You won't find out
what's going on in her head
until you do.
DEAR ABBY: My wife
and I have been involved
in an ongoing debate about
how to place-the pillows on
our king-size bed. Should
the opening of the pillowcase
face the outside of the bed or
the inside?
I place my pillows with
the opening facing the mid-
dle of the bed so the pillow
won't show, while my wife
does it the other way, and
the edge of the pillow can
be seen through the open-
ing. Can you please settle
this? - PILLOW TALK IN
ABILENE
DEAR PILLOW TAIK.
Hotels make up the beds with
the opening of the pillowcas-
es turned to the middle be-
cause the maids usually tuck
the edge of the pillowcase in-
ward. A specialist in the bed-
ding department of my local
department store says that
in most homes, the opening
of the pillowcase faces the
edge of the bed. But the bot-
tom line is - there is no right
or wrong way!
