-Travers of 1960s folk anthem.trio dies at 72


BOSTON

part of the folk trio
Peter, Paul and
Mary, which used
beautiful, tranquil
harmonies to convey the angst and
turmoil of the Vietnam anti-war
movement, racial discrimination and
more, died after a yearslong battle
with leukemia. She was 72.
The band's publicist, Heather
Lylis, said Travers died Wednesday
at Danbury Hospital in Connecticut.
Though their music sounded
serene, Peter, Paul and Mary repre-
sented the frustration and upheaval
of the 1960s, as a generation of liber-
al activists used their music not only
to protest political policies, but also
to spark social change. And even as
the issues changed, and the fiery
protests abated, the group remained
immersed in musical activism.
Bandmate Peter Yarrow said that
in her final months, Travers handled
her declining health with bravery
'and generosity, showing her love to
friends and family "with great dignity
and without restraint."

Women, spending and whipping up bills


There used to be a
water-cooler line the
gist of which was
that women had to
work twice as hard
as men to get half as far in the
workplace. Peggy Lee sang the
song, "I am a Woman" including
the lyrics, "I can bring home the
bacon, fry it up in a pan."
Even though both have
become ossified cliches because
women have proven themselves
over and over, a new study
seems to prove women are
still overachieving, this time in
Congress. A study released this
week by researchers at Stanford
University and the University of
Chicago says that, on average,
women in Congress whip up
more bills than their male coun-
terparts, arm-twist more mem-
bers of their own party and the
opposition to co-sponsor these
bills and (here comes the song
allusion) bring back more fed-.
eral pork.to their constituents
than their male counterparts.
The study traced two decades
of performance by House mem-
bers between 1984 and 2004,
and reports that female mem-
bers cook up some 9 percent
more discretionary spending
(Washington-speak for pork) for
their districts than men.
Politico.corn reports, "For
instance, during Rep. Judy
Bigger's first two-year term,;
Illinois's 13th District received
$382 million in federal funds,
$70 million more than it
received during the final term
of her predecessor, Rep. Harris

LETTERS TO
President needs,
deserves support
To the Editor:
I've just seen our president
give two of the most important
and informative speeches of
our times. I think it's time we
get over our election losses and
get behind our president to get
some things accomplished. I
am fed up with false rumors
and fear mongering about the
important issues our Congress
is supposed to be working on
for our benefit.
For instance, on the health
care issues, last year this time
I was hearing moaning and
groaning about all the injustices
and ever-increasing high cost of
our health system. Yet, since the
president and some of Congress
has tackled this issue, the whole
country seems to have exploded
in complaining, criticizing, and
out right rumoring and spread-
ing misconceptions, overlooking
facts and intelligent dialogue
altogether. This rhetoric and
falsehoods going on is showing
a lack of respect for the highest
office in our country, and also
for any rights and beliefs of oth-
ers.
And to the Republicans: The
presidential election was won
last year; we have a president -

his final term, the researchers
said.
And during then-Rep. Connie
Morella's first term, Maryland's
8th District received $780 mil-
lion, $183 million more than pre-
decessor Rep. Michael Barnes
brought in during his final term,
they said."
The Politico.com article also
sports a key paragraph discuss-
ing why female members seem
to be so much more productive
than their male counterparts. It
says, among other things, that
there may be strength in small
numbers, which runs contrary
to the cliche that large numbers
wield clout, but small numbers
do not.
Politico.com quotes research-
ers opining that women self-
select out. Therefore, only those
who are ambitious, talented and
hard working actually run for
and win office, more so than
men. Social Darwinism applies
to gender and politics as well.
The fittest survive and thrive.
But what the study does
not seem to tell us is whether
female members are more suc-
cessful in securing final passage
for their bills. Yes, we know
they "bring home the bacon."
That's tough, but not as tough
as securing final passage for
one's proposals.
All legislative successes


THE E-D I TO R
can we not get over it and move
on? Would we really rather push
for Obama's failure than trying
to work together for the good
of the country? It sure seems
that way to me. I've even experi-
enced this rhetoric in our funda-
mental evangelical churches. I
am a fundamentalist evangelical
born again Christian, and yet I'd
like to know that Obama and all
our elected officials was too. But
we are not in heaven yet, we are
in this world, so why wouldn't
we cooperate and work with our
earthly officials because God
can and is using them to accom-
plish His plan whether it always
suits our ideology and theology
or not I know of no crowns to
be earned for a contrary spirit
If I remember correctly, when
Medicare was started, we had
some of the same doomsday
rumors then, and today I know
of no senior that wants to give
up their Medicare. Just to be
partisan? Is this socialized medi-
cine?
If in the last six months the
Republicans would have worked
half as hard on worthy issues
as they have on "saying no to
everything," would we be the
hysterical and divided people
we are now? It appears they are
becoming the party of "only
white Southern people" and
that certainly is not the real-


depend more on seniority, party
status, personal relationships
with congressional leaders and
the ability to wheel and deal
more than they do on one's
gender. With a female speaker
in the U.S. House who is a pro-
woman woman if ever there
were one, Democratic female
House members are in an even
better position to be effective
than they were during the two
decades this study covered.
My hope and suspicion is,
however, that the current reces-
sion coupled with a record defi-
cit will change the landmarks
by which we measure members'
efficiency and productivity. Both
parties have paid lip service to
the deficit. Neither has done
much to cut ballooning spend
and "unsustainable" debt (in
the words of the Congressional.
Budget Office.)
My hope is in the near future,
members' efficacy will be
measured by how much they
cut federal spending, not by
how much they bring home or
how many bills they pass that
add to the deficit During her
early tenure, House Speaker
Nancy Pelosi pushed her "pay
as you go" or Pay-Go mantra,
which forced every increase
in spending to be coupled with
a cut somewhere else. Even
President Barack Obama signed
on for a while. Then the reces-
sion hit and deficit worries were
trumped by economic woes.
Will we see members, male
and female, start to pay serious
attention to the deficit? Not a
chance - not in the near term
anyway. But a woman can hope.

also appears that they are fast
becoming the minority party.
Could their behavior be con-

numbers?
And yes, I have voted
Republican through the years
more than Democrat But I cer-
tainly don't approve of the way
they're acting now and would�
not want to be one of them now.
My husband just switched his
registration from Republican to
Independent because he was
ashamed to be in their camp.
Any adults that questioned
their children hearing the
president speak to them had the
opportunity to read the speech
and make their own decision.
After reading it and then object-
ing, I think is bordering on
being nothing but partisan and
bull-headed. All our children
could have benefited from hear-
ing that speech. And it was a
perfect time to teach respect for
the office and any differences
in our beliefs and why they are
there.
From listening to the far-right

we have some very childish
simple-minded adults thinking
of themselves more than any-

Puff goes

the nation's

courtesy

M y dear readers,
I am striving to
be extra polite
today because
ill-mannered
jerks appear to have taken over
America and someone has to
set a higher standard. In every
field - particularly politics
- rudeness rules.
I know what you are think-
ing: If I am the one to set the
standards for politeness, we
are all doomed. That is just the
sort of discourteous thought
that I seek to banish.
But how to restore good
manners to America? The
easiest way might be to bring
back smoking as a fashionable
pastime. Yes, it is a disgusting
habit that can lead to horrible
death, but on the upside, it has
a sedative effect on users.
Native Americans smoked
peace pipes for this reason,
although it is also possible that
they wanted to have a quiet
smoke just to get out of hunt-
ing and gathering, as office
workers do today next to the
"no smoking" signs outside
their buildings.
Back in the day, courtesy
drifted in the air like rings.
"Would you care for a ciga-
rette?" "Why, I don't mind if I
do, thank you." "You are most
welcome." Then, according
to the.etiquette of the time,
smoke would be blown into the
other person's face as a sign of
good cheer.
When the smoker had the
traditional three-martini lunch,
he or she would become a
stumbling and coughing repli-
ca of Emily Post But I suppose
the golden - read, nicotine-
stained - age of politeness
can never be revived.
The political will to promote
smoking as a social anesthetic
is just not there, and the three-
martini lunch has heard strike
three called. What a shame!
The result is that jerks are.
living longer and making our
lives a misery. They go to tea
parties with no intention of
holding up tea cups with one
pinky extended but instead
employ another finger to make
a coarse point This is not
good.
That's is why I am writing
a book of political etiquette
for those who support family
values but might want to be
acquainted with a fundamen-
tal one - good manners. I
call it: "Liar, Liar, Politics on
Fire: Strain the Tea, Not Our
Country."
It will be in a question-and-
answer format I will field ques-
tions from imaginary friends,
which is OK because my target
audience has imaginary ene-
mies. Here is a sample:
Dear Mr. Politeness Czar:
Even though you hold an
unconstitutional position, can
you tell me if it is OK to hold
up a sign at a tea party that
says "Obama Is a Marxist
Muslim"? My wife says that's
an oxymoron but I told her she
was an oxymoron.
Dear Sir: In our age, this is
a perfectly acceptable sign. It
shows people exactly where
you are coming from, although
admittedly not the name of the
institution. But our Founding
Fathers fought for the right
to free speech and for the
right to be stupid. But do
not call your wife vile names
such as oxymoron or liberal.
Remember that liberals got the
Constitution changed so that
women can vote and she may
take her secret revenge later
and cut off your ticket .
This is just a sample, dear
readers, and I hope it gave
you a laugh and something to
think about it. If not, thank you
for your interest and, with the
greatest respect, to heck with
you.

New homes for sale are shown in Tigard, Ore., Wednesday. Housing construction rose in August to the highest level in nine
months as a big surge in apartment building offset a decline in single-family activity.

Housing data points to a fragile recovery


By CHRISTOPHER S.
RUGABER and MARTIN
CRUTSINGER
AP Economics Writers
WASHINGTON -
Housing construction rose
in August and the number
of newly laid-off workers
seeking unemployment
aid fell unexpectedly last
week, adding to signs the
recession has ended.
Still, the reports sug-
gested a slow and frag-
ile economic recovery. In
part, that's because the


increased housing starts
were due solely to a surge
in construction of apart-
mentbuildings-while the
much larger single-family
homes sector fell for the
first time in six months.
And jobless claims remain
far above the levels associ-
ated with a healthy econ-
omy. Even as the housing
industry begins to recover
from its worst downturn in
decades, a glut of unsold
homes and record levels
of home foreclosures are
weighing on the industry.


Construction of multi-
family homes and apart-
ments rose 1.5 percent
to an annual rate of
598,000 units, the highest
level since November, the
Commerce Department
said Thursday. That was
slightly, lower than ,the
600,000-unit pace econo-
mists had expected.
I And it remains more
than 70 percent below the
peak rate hit in 2006.The
tentative improvements in
housing are most likely
a rebound "from unsus-


tainably weak results ...
reinforced by a temporary
boost to demand" from
the $8,000 first-time home-
buyer tax credit that ends
Dec. 1, Joshua Shapiro,
chief economist at MFR
Inc., wrote in a note to
clients.
"Gains from here on will
probably be much more
difficult to achieve," due to
high unemployment, tight
credit and a large number
of new and existing homes
already on the market, he
said.


House bill would boost Pell Grants for students
* * . '


By LIBBY QUAID
AP-Education Writer
WASHINGTON - The
House voted Thursday in
favor of the biggest over-
haul of college aid pro-
grams since their creation
in the 1960s - a bill to
oust private lenders from
the student loan business
and put the government in
charge. '
The vote was 253-171
in favor of a bill that ful-
fills nearly all of President
Barack' Obama's campaign
promises for higher edu-
cation. The measure ends
subsidies for private lend-
ers, boosts Pell Grants for
needy students and cre-
ates a grant program to
improve community col-
leges, among other things.
"These are reforms that
have been talked about for
years, but they're always
blocked by special inter-
ests and their lobbyists,"
Obama said'Thursday dur-
ing a rally at the University
of Maryland.
"Well, because you voted


for change in November,
we're going to bring
change in the House of
Representatives today," the
president said.
Ending loan subsidies
and turning control over
to the government would
save taxpayers an esti-
mated $87 billion, accord-
ing to the Congressional
Budget Office. Lawmakers
would use that money to
help make college more
affordable, increasing the
maximum,, Pell Grant by
$1,400 to. $6,900 over the
next decade.... .....
"The choice before us is
clear. We can either .keep
sending these subsidies to
banks or we can start send-
ing them directly to stu-
dents," said the bill's spon-
sor, California Democratic
Rep. George Miller, chair-
man of the House Education
and Labor Committee.,
Yet the money also
would be spent on things
that don't'help pay for col-
lege, such as construction
at K-12 schools and new
preschool programs.


And while the measure
would increase Pell Grants,
it would do nothing to
curb college costs, which
rise much faster than Pell
Grants do.
In addition, the CBO
says that when adminis-
trative costs and market*
conditions are considered,
the savings from switch-
ing to direct government
lending could. be much
lower, $47 billion instead of
$87 billion.
Republicans warned
that instead of saving the'
government 'money, as:
Democrats promise, the
bill could wind up cost-
ing the government -more
money.
"Unfortunately, the num-
bers just don't add up," said
Minnesota Rep. John Kline,
senior Republican on the
Education Committee.
Lawmakers split largely
along party lines on the bill,
with only six Republicans in
favor and three Democrats
against. The measure goes
next to the Senate, where
its fate -is a little less cer-


tain.
Obama didn't get his way
on one thing: The presi-
dent proposed earlier this
year to take Pell Grants out
of lawmakers' hands entire-
ly, making the program
an entitlement like Social
Security and Medicare,
which would have cost an
estimated $117 billion -
more than lawmakers have,
to spend.
Under the measure,
Pell Grants would rise
slightly more than infla-
tion over the next decade,
increasing-on average by
about 2.6 percent yearly,
according to the bill's
sponsors. However, the
grants would still depend
on annual spending bills
and could rise less than
promised, as has happened
in the past.
Lawmakers met him
halfway on the labyrinthine
college aid form; Obama
proposed to eliminate it
altogether when he ran'
for president, but the bill
would keep the, form and
shorten it.

Mortgage rates down,

still above record lows


By ALAN ZIBEL
AP Real Estate Writer
WASHINGTON - Rates
for 30-year home loans
edged down for the third-
straight week and are close
to record lows reached
over the spring.
The average rate for a,
30-year fixed mortgage
was 5.04 percent, down
from 5.07 percent a week
earlier, mortgage com-
pany Freddie Mac said
Thursday.
Rates, -while above the
record low of 4.78 percent
hit in the spring, are still
attractive for people look-
ing to buy a home or refi-
nance.
It was the lowest weekly
average since the week of
May 28, when rates aver-
aeed 4.91 percent.


To prop up the hous-
ing market and help the
economy revive from the
worst recession since the
1930s, the Federal Reserve
is spending $1.25 trillion
on mortgage-backed secu-
rities, which has driven
down rates on home loans.
That money is set to run
out by winter, though some
analysts expect the central
bank to add more money
to the program or allow it
to last longer by gradually
reducing its purchases.
Despite government
efforts to prop up the
mortgage market, qualify-
ing for a loan is still tough.
Lenders have tightened
their standards dramati-
cally, so the best rates
are available to those with
solid credit and a 20 per-
cent down payment.-

By MATT SEDENSKY
Associated Press
MIAMI - Seniors who
for years have made flu
shots a fall ritual are being
sent to the end of the line
for the swine flu vaccine.
And the reason - their
age group seems to have a
bit of immunity - appears
to have warded off most
potential grumbling.
"I don't worry about get-
ting it," said 89-year-old
Robert Goodman, a Boca
Raton retiree. "At this age,
who ... cares? You take it as
it comes."


Across Florida, a retire-
ment dreamland that is
home to about 3.2 million
people 65 and older, seniors
who are typically plagued
by nearly any spreadable
illness are just happy they
appear to have been given
a reprieve from the new flu
. virus that has run rampant
through schools, colleges
and campsites.
In an Associated Press-
GfK poll, released last
week, 82 percent of seniors,
said they're likely to seek
a swine flu shot. That's
higher than any other age
group surveyed. But in


interview after interview,
they also expressed wide
acceptance of the govern-
ment's orders to put other,
more at-risk people ahead
of them.
"We've been exposed
to so many illnesses in
our lifetime that if there's
anything out there to
* be exposed to, we've
probably already been
exposed to it," said Jill
Svoboda, a 68-year-old
retired teacher from
Bushnell. "I've had a ...
good life. I'd like it to
continue, but if it doesn't,
them's the breaks."


PIPELINE: Prohibited from use of river
Continued From Page 1A


by requesting that water
bottling plants be prohib-
ited from taking water from
the Suwannee River or any
of its tributaries.
Thursday night, county
officials unanimously voted
in favor or denying a pro-
posal which requested the
use of county property
for a pipeline from Santa
Springs LLC owner Stephen
Cheeseman. The pipeline
would carry water from the
Santa Fe River to a proposed
water bottling facility in the
town of Fort White.
During the meeting
Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson,
president of the Our Santa
Fe River environmental
group, gave a presenta-


tion detailing how the local
water tables have dropped
in recent years and noted
why she felt the commission
should deny Cheeseman's
request
Jipson wasn't the only per-
son at the meeting speak-
ing against the proposal, as
Levy County resident Barry
Cannon and his wife Renada
also spoke against the pro-
posal.
"Don't ever allow anyone
to get your water because
you can't get it back," he
told commissioners.
Following remarks by the
Cannons and Fort White
residents, Loye Barnard
of the' Save Our Suwannee
environmental 'group and


Stewart Lilker, both of
whom spoke against the
proposal, commissioners
unanimously voted in favor
of denying the request.
"I will never, ever sup-
port a private pipeline
going down that road," said
Columbia County District
II Commissioner Dewey
Weaver. "Ifs just not going
to happen. It's not going to
happen to Fry Road."
Commissioners then
reached a consensus and
decided to send a letter to
the Suwannee River Water
Management District reaf-
firming the county's posi-
tion of prohibiting water
withdrawal by bottling plant
from the local rivers.

Nuke agency says Iran can make bomb


Associated Press


VIENNA - Experts
at the world's top atomic
watchdog are in agree-
ment that Tehran has the
ability to make a nuclear
bomb and is on the way to
developing a missile sys-
tem able to carry an atomic
warhead, according to a


secret report seen by The
Associated Press.
The document drafted
by senior officials at the
InternationalAtomicEnergy
Agency is the clearest indi-
cation yet that the agency's
leaders share Washington's
views on Iran's weapon-
making capabilities.
It appears to be the so-


called "secret annex" 'on
Iran's nuclear program,-liat
Washington says is beiig
withheld by the IAEA's
chief. : :
The document says Iran
has "sufficient information"
to build a bomb. It says
Iran is likely to "overcome
problems" on developing a
delivery system. -:

steps that would have to be
taken before Iraq could call
a referendum to alter the
so-called "status of forces"
agreement.
The agreement currently
calls for the withdrawal of
American combat forces by
the end of August 2010 and
all U.S. troops by the end of
the following year.
Parliament approved the
agreement in November on
condition that it is put to
a vote in a national refer-
endum. The Iraqi govern-
ment has agreed to hold


the referendum in conjunc-
tion with parliamentary
elections in January. If vot-
ers reject the agreement
in the referendum, U.S.
forces would have a year to
withdraw instead of by the
end of 2011.
Biden, the White House's
point'man in Iraq, said upon
his arrival in Baghdad on
Tuesday that Iraqi leaders
had indicated to him that
the referendum was "likely
to happen," but added the
caveat, "I'm not sure it's
settled yet"


House votes to


defund ACORN


By JIM ABRAMS
Associated Press

WASHINGTON - The
House voted Thursday' to
deny all .federal funds for
ACORN in a GOP-led strike
against the scandal-tainted
community organizing
group that comes just three
days after the Senate took
similar action.
S"ACORN has violated
-serious federal laws, anid
today the House voted to
ensure that taxpayer dol-
lars would no longer be
used to fund this corrupt
organization," said second-
ranked House Republican
Eric 'Cantor of Virginia.
The vote, on a provi-
sion attached to a student
aid bill, was 345-75, with
Democrats supplying all
the "no" votes.
On Monday the Senate
voted 83-7 to deny hous-
ing and community grant
funding to ACORN, which


stands for the Association of
Community Organizations
for Reform Now.
Republicans accelerated
their attacks on the liberal-
leaning group a year ago
when ACORN, in conduct-
ing a massive voter regis-
tration drive, was accused
of submitting some false
registration forms.
On a hidden-camera
video released on Monday,
two ACORN employees are
seen apparently advising a
couple that was posing as
a prostitute and her pimp
to lie about her profession
and launder her earnings.
The video was the latest in
a series that has already led
to the firing of four ACORN
employees 'in Baltimore
and Washington. It was
created by James O'Keefe
and Hannah .Giles and

Born

into the

business
erry Odom has
been around a lot
of football before
settling in as coach
at Suwannee High.
Most recently, Odom
left Coffee County High
in Georgia to join friend
Bret Munsey as his
assistant head coach
for the Philadelphia
Soul Arena Football
League team. Owner
Jon Bon Jovi's team won
the ArenaBowl in 2008
before the league was put
on hold and Odom went
back on the market.
"I enjoyed my time at
Coffee and might have
stayed there if I hadn't
got a three-year contract
worth a lot of money,"
Odom said. "Obviously
I grew up in high school
football and I liked it. My
kids are at the age where
this was the right
situation and it was
possibly a way to go."
Odom's dad, Gerald
Odom, was a long-time
coach at Merritt Island
High, where he made 12
trips to the playoffs and
won the Class 4A state
championship ip 1978-79.
He coached his son
during the tenure.
"I have known I
wanted to do this a long
time," Odom said. "When
I was a kid I would sit
in on the film study and
write down the
breakdowns. He was
successful and you could
see the community get
behind something
special."
Odom signed with
Florida, where he played
from 1987-90. His senior
season was the first for
Steve Spurrier and began
the Gator dominance.
"We had a really good
defense the whole time
I was in school," Odom
said. "The one thing we
said was, if they got an
offensive guy to come in,
we would hold our own
on defense. The program
had kind of a hangover
and I think it was the
saving grace.
"I am proud to be a
part of what the program
has become."
Odom said he was
born to coach. He's not
good fixing things, can't
play golf and is not much
of a fisherman.
He spent a couple of
years at Florida, coached
at TCU, and was
defensive coordinator at
East Carolina. He was
head coach at Apopka
and led New Smyrna
Beach to four playoffs
and was 94 in the
postseason. At Coffee,
Odom was '4-6, 9-3 and
10-3 with two wins over
Madison County.
"I don't see it as
working, it's a passion,"
Odom said. "Out on that
practice field is my
favorite time of day. I
don't have to worry
about anything. Getting
through to these kids
and seeing them develop,
that is the fun part."

Hostile house


Fort White faces the
noisy structure known
as Langford Stadium.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.comrn
FORT WHITE - Coach
Demetric Jackson, wants his foot-
ball team to experience playoff
type atmospheres. Langford
Stadium should fill the bill.
Fort White High (1-1) plays at
Suwannee High (1-1) at 7:30 p.m.
today.
Suwannee's Langford Stadium
is a tough venue under any cir-
cumstance. Throw in the fact
that it is the home-opener for the
Bulldogs under new head coach
Jerry Odom and the problem for
visiting teams is compounded.
"It is their first home game,
so we will come into a hostile
environment," Jackson said. "They
will be looking at us as a mUst-win
game since we are a smaller classi-
fication. We are definitely looking
forward to the challenge."
Not only were Suwannee's first
two games away, the kickoff clas-
sic was at Chiefland High.
"It feels like we have been on
the road forever," Odom said.
'The kids are excited and we hope
to get a decent crowd. We have
been working hard, but we have a
long way to go to be a good foot-
ball team."
It will be Fort White's first game


against Suwannee. Jackson said
he told his team it doesn't get
any more hostile than Boot Hill
at Madison County High, and
the Indians have already played
there.
One difference is you can see out
into the field south of the Madison
County stadium. At Langford, you
are looking at a high block wall,
which keeps in the sound. Also at
Langford, both sets of stands are
right near the field.
"You can tell them about it,
but it is a different atmosphere,"
Jackson said. "It is really enclosed
and can get loud. That is what I
want, to give players that experi-
ence. We can help our chances if
we do what we are supposed to
and get the crowd out of it."
Fort White will also play road
games against defending Class
1A state champion North Florida
Christian School, East Gadsden
High and Bradford High.
Suwannee has made 15 state
playoff appearances and won four
consecutive state titles in 1987-90.
The Bulldogs also were state run-
ners-up once, but have not been in
the playoffs since 2003. Coming off
a 2-8 season, the team is hungry.
"That is why we schedule teams
like that," Jackson said. "It is still
football - blocking, tackling,
catching and running.
Directions: Take U.S. 90 west
to downtown Live Oak; go past
U.S. 129 and stadium is three
-blocks to the south.

NASCAR Chase

drivers take New

York by storm


By JENNA FRYER
Associated Press

NEW YORK - Three-
time defending NASCAR
champion Jimmie Johnson's
whirlwind day came to a
close when four Knicks City
Dancers presented him with
a cake to celebrate his 34th
birthday.
In between, there was
a pie-throwing contest at
"Live! with Regis and Kelly,"
fashion advice from Brian
Vickers to Kurt Busch, and
Ryan Newman's attempt to
toss popcorn across a room
and into someone's open
mouth.
It was the last pressure-
free day for NASCAR's
12 championship driv-
ers, who 'pumped up the
Chase for the champion-
ship across New York City
on Thursday before head-
ing to New Hampshire for
what's expected to be the
most competitive title-race
to date.
"It's definitely 'the tight-
est field I've ever been a
part of," said Greg Biffle,
seeded 12th in his third
Chase appearance. "The
competition is pretty close,
and I think anyone could
win it this year."
The field includes four
champions, two first-
timers and 50-year-old Mark
Martin, who earned the
top seed with a Sprint Cup
'Series-high four "regular
season" victories. Widely
considered the best driver
* to never win a champion-
ship, Martin isn't setting
any expectations in his first
Chase since 2006.
"I learned *a long time
ago it's easier to not be dis-
appointed when you don't
have high expectations,"
Martin said. ,
Martin, a health nut who
carefully watches his diet,
snacked on a cookie and
a cream puff as he threw
himself into NASCAR's
marathon day of Chase
promotions.
As usual, putting all 12
drivers together provided
for an entertaining day.
Vickers, who earned his
first Chase berth in the final
qualifying race, began his
day with a 6 a.m. wake-up
call for an appearance on
the CW "Morning Show."
Several others got to
sleep in - their first sched-
uled event was at Regis,
where they met up with
Vickers. Once all in the
green room, they quickly
deduced that Johnson and
Kasey Kahne were wearing
the exact same shirt, while


Johnson and Denny Hamlin
had similar military-style
jackets.
It surprised Kurt Busch,
who was in a full suit with tie
because "I want my grand-
mother to say I look dap-
per." But against his more
casually dressed contempo-
raries, he felt overdressed.
He tore off his tie moments
before they went on set,
and Vickers quickly helped
him adjust his outfit
"Unbutton those two top
buttons," Vickers told him.
"I can't, too many guns
will pop out," Busch replied.
"You need that top one
unbuttoned," Vickers
insisted.
"I'd unbutton mine, but
they all popped off," Hamlin
interrupted, showing off
the missing buttons from
his golf shirt.
"Which club was that?"
Busch wondered.
Hamlin, operating on just
four hours of sleep, only
smiled.
Then it was time to
change into full protective
gear for the pie-throwing
contest, which the drivers
reluctantly participated in.
It was the show's attempt
to break the Guinness World
Record for the largest cus-
tard pie-throwing contest.
The drivers were given full
rain suits - Busch prompt-
ly affixed a sponsor logo
to his - and protective
goggles.
As they made their way
out to the street, Chase
rookie Juan Pablo Montoya
issued a warning.
"I'll make you a deal,"
he told the others. "Anyone
gets me with a pie, I get you
back on Sunday."
Despite their ear-
lier grousing, the drivers
seemed to enjoy the contest
once the custard starting
flying. They xere all laugh-
ing after, even as they fruit-
lessly tried to clean custard
off their soiled shoes.
The day continued
through several more stops
and a four-hour session at
Hard Rock Cafe, where the
bantering continued during
down time in the "green
room."
But all the fun came to
a halt when the day ended
and drivers began the trip
to New Hampshire for
Sunday's first of 10 Chase
races.
"It's going to be tough,"
said two-time champion
Tony Stewart. "It's a good
field, and I don't think any-
one is a clear favorite right
now. It's going to be really
interesting."

"Well, anytime you get
all dressed up and ready
to play it's disappointing,"
coach Craig Howard said.
"The boys were ready to
play, and they were a little
disappointed that the game


didn't get in. They'll go
to bed tonight and they'll
wake up tomorrow and
it'll be game day all over
again.
"They'll be ready to
play. That's one of the


good things about having
this game down here on
Thursday night; it gives
you options if something
like this happens."
If the weather pattern
continues, the Tigers may


be forced to rely heavily
on the running game and
Tiger Powell.
The field conditions
could be sloppy as the
weather forecast calls for
more rain today.

Scores to settle


By RALPH D. RUSSO
Associated Press

Florida has a score to
settle. Texas, too, but for a
different reason.
Coach Urban Meyer and
his Gators welcome (sort
of) Tennessee coach Lane
Kiffin to Gainesville and the
Southeastern Conference
on Saturday.
Kiffin took aim at the
Mighty Gators in the off-
season, throwing a few ver-
bal jabs at Meyer and even
accusing the Florida coach
of breaking NCAA rules.
The Gators have gener-
ally played it cool publicly.
"It's an intense rivalry,"
Florida quarterback Tim
Tebow said. "People go out
there and play extremely
hard. It's one of the most
physical games we'll play
all year."
But Meyer, Tebow and
the Gators, have shown
they are not above holding
a grudge, having answered
some perceived slights in
the past with very real beat
downs.
Just ask Georgia. In
2007 against Florida, the
Bulldogs held a team party
in the end zone after their
first touchdown and went
on to beat the Gators.
Florida's response last
year: A 49-10 victory against
Georgia, in which Meyer
was calling late timeouts.
Kiffin's, first Tennessee
team doesn't appear ready
to compete against the-
defending national champi-
ons after a 19-15 home loss
to UCLA last week.
In Austin, Texas, the
Longhorns are looking for
revenge of a different kind
against Texas Tech.
Colt .McCoy and No. 2
Texas lost only once last
season, a 39-33 setback
in Lubbock. on Graham
Harrell's unforgettable last-
second touchdown pass to
Michael Crabtree. It was
one of the best games of the
season.
It also kept Texas from
playing for the national
title and vaulted the Red
Raiders into the champion-
ship chase.
Harrell and Crabtree are
gone now and coach Mike
Leach's Red Raiders aren't
even' ranked, though that
would change if they can
make it two straight over
the Longhorns.

Jamaal Montague (81) also celebrates.


Another Gainesville foe


C olumbia High
continues
its tour of
Gainesville this
week as it goes
on the road against the
Buchholz High Bobcats in
a special Thursday night.
kickoff at 7 p.m.
Buchholz had a taste
of the old-look Tigers last
week by taking on the
Orange Park High Raiders
and fell to an
0-2 regular season record
after losing to the Eastside


(Gainesville) High Rams in
week one.
The Bobcats will have
to figure out an all new
offense going from the
wing-T to the spread, and
- it could be a good sign as
the defense has been the
Buchholz Achilles' heel.
In the loss, the Bobcats
gave up 274 yards of rush-
ing. It was one more yard
than Tiger Powell gained
in a week one tie, 48-48, to
the Charlton County (Ga.)
High Indians.


Columbia should be
focused on the run as
Powell has gained more
than 150 yards in both
contest this season, and
with a defense that has
given up as many yards as
it has against the run in
two games this year.
While Columbia will be
looking to keep the train
rolling after going 1-0-1 in
its first two regular season
games, the Bobcats will
just be looking to pull off
their first win.

Indians go after Bulldogs


Many football
players
from Fort
White have
mixed it up
against Suwannee High.
This week, the Indians get
to go to Langford Stadium
under their own banner.
Fort White visits
Suwannee for a 7:30 p.m.
kickoff on Friday. Both
teams are 1-1, with loses to
Madison County High.
Fort White is coming off
a 30-21 win over Newberry


High in the home-opener
for the Indians.
Suwannee has a new
head coach in Jerry Odom,
and the Bulldogs opened
the season with a 28-7 win
at Hamilton County High.
Fort White had a 9-2
playoff season in 2008,
while Suwannee fell on
hard tinies at 2-8.
In the Newberry win,
the Indians got another
two-touchdown game from
the combination of
quarterback Alex Gilmer


and receiver Alexis Blake.
This time,.Blake added a
safety on a tackle in the
end zone to give Fort-
White a two-point lead.
Gilmer was 12-of-18 for
133 yards, with one
interception. He scored a
touchdown on a
quarterback sneak. Alexis
Blake had five catches for
57 yards and Roy Blake
added four receptions for
52 yards. Montre Cray had
23 carries for 94 yards and
one touchdown.

DEAR ABBY


Woman discovers old beau

is her new friend's husband


DEAR ABBY: I recently
met a woman at a "Mommy
and Me" class. We hit it off
immediately and started
making plans for play dates,
etc. During one class we
started talking about our
husbands, and I realized that
her husband is someone I
had a casual relationship
with 10 years ago.
I have avoided getting
together with her ever since
because I don't know if it is
appropriate to tell her how
well I know her husband.
I have not had any contact
with him, and I don't know
how he would feel about my
friendship with his wife. If
we are to be friends, I feel
I must be honest with her.
I'd appreciate your advice.
- FEELING AWKWARD
IN MASSACHUSETITS
DEAR FEELING AWK-
WARD: If the situation were
reversed, how would you
feel about it? Would you feel
OK with it if she had rejected
your husband? If he rejected
her, would you care to rein-
troduce someone who might
be considered a "woman
scorned"? Qr are you all so-
phisticatedeenough to laugh
it off and let bygones be by-
gones? If the answer to that
last question is yes, then lev-
el with her. If not, then don't
go there.
DEAR ABBY: "Mary"
and I worked in the same
department for 20 years. We
would occasionally socialize
outside of work along with


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearobby.com
our husbands. They eventu-
ally divorced, but I stayed
friends with Mary. She re-
married, transferred out of
my department a few years
ago, and we now see each
other only at work-related
functions.
I recently heard that her
ex had passed away sud-
denly. I don't know whether
I should send her a condo-
lence card, call her or not
mention anything until we
bump into each other again.'
What is the proper proce-
dure for acknowledging
- or not - the death of an ex-
spouse?- ROCHELLE IN
HAMILTON, N.Y.
DEAR ROCHELLE: If
Mary's first marriage ended
in a bitter divorce, drop her
a line and let her know what
you heard. She may not
have heard the news. If the
divorce was a friendly one,
then give her a call and offer
condolences. Not only would
it be a gesture of support,
but also an opportunity for
the two of you to catch up.
DEAR ABBY: My friend,
"Jane," who lives in Califor-
nia, is going through a pain-'

ful divorce. She has recently
become obsessed with a ce-
lebrity and, through fan chat
rooms, found out where he
hangs out, goes shopping,
etc.
She is now attending his
church. She has spoken to
him casually twice and says
she "knows" they are meant
to be together.
I know Jane isn't violent,
and I'm sure she would do
him no harm, but when I
mentioned counseling she
accused me of being "jeal-
ous."

ers. Jane is a 43-year-old
woman. Mutual friends tell
me I should let her have her
fun. Am I right to be con-
cerned? - FRIEND OF A
STALKER
DEAR FRIEND: Yes,
to a degree, because your
friend may be setting herself
up for another disappoint-
ment. Sought-after celebri-
ties develop an'instinct for
detecting obsessed fans who
try to worm their way into
their.lives.
Right now, Jane's behav-
ior is on the outer perimeters
'of riormal. But if it escalates,
contact the clergyperson of
the church and let him or
her know what's going on so
he or she can take action or
the celebrity can be notified.
