Buyout talks heat up on Elvis brand


MEMPHIS, Tenn.


Elvis Presley is in play.
CKx Inc., owner of the
"American Idol" televi-
sion program and 85
percent of Elvis Presley
Enterprises, is mulling at least two
offers to buy the company. At the
same time, thousands of Elvis fans
have descended on Memphis for
Elvis Week, the annual commemora-
tion of the American music icon's life
and death.
CKx owns rights to the name,
image and likeness of Elvis Presley
and the operations of Graceland,
Presley's Memphis mansion. While
the "American Idol" franchise is the
company's main money maker, the
Elvis brand is still an earner. Elvis,
who died in 1977, generated more
than $60 million last year in rev-
enue from royalties, licensing and
Graceland's operations.
Two faces familiar to CKx have
offered to buy it Robert Sillerman,
the company's former CEO, and
Simon Fuller, the British media
mogul who created the "Idol" fran-
chise before selling his company,
19 Entertainment, to CKx in 2005.
Sillerman's offer, made public
Wednesday, values the company at
between $512 million and $535 mil-
lion.

Man gets jail time
for killing 2 dogs
VIERA A Brevard
County man has been sen-
tenced to a year in jail for
killing two of his dogs after
they attacked another dog.
Rusty Lewark also
received nine years pro-
bation Thursday, during
which time he will not be
allowed to own pets. The
26-year-old pleaded guilty
in June to animal cruelty
charges.
Rockledge police
arrested Lewark in
February after investiga-
tors say he struck one of
his dogs repeatedly on
the head until it died and
then put a noose around
the neck of the other dog-
and strangled it The pit
bulls, named Pestilence
and Chaos, had reportedly
attacked one of his mixed-
breed dogs.
A family member report-
ed Lewark to authorities.
Investigators reported
finding the carcasses of
the dogs in a trash bin.

Couple charged
with abusing kids
ALTAMONTE SPRINGS
- A central Florida couple -
has been charged with
beating their newly adopt-
ed children with a wooden
spoon, a belt and a paddle,
forcing them to do push-
ups and jumping jacks and
denying them food as pun-
ishment.
Dwayne and Pamela
Hardy were arrested
Wednesday on two counts
each of cruelty toward
a child involving torture
or punishment. They
were released from the
Seminole County Jail after
each posted a $7,100 bond.

pregnant woman's forced
hospitalization, ruling that
her right to refuse medi-
cal treatment had been
violated.
A Tallahassee judge
had issued the order after
Samantha Burton's doctor
argued the woman, who
was six months pregnant,
was risking a miscarriage
if she didn't quit smoking
and stay in the hospital on
bed rest
A three-judge panel
of the 1st District Court
of Appeal ruled 2-1 in
Burton's favor. The opin-
ion is grounded in the
state constitution's strong
privacy right, although it's
also in line with similar
decisions outside Florida.
"A patient's fundamen-
tal constitutional right to
refuse medical interven-
tion 'can only be overcome
if the state has a compel-'
ling state interest great
enough to override this
constitutional right," wrote
District Judge Nikki Ann
Clark, quoting from a 1994
ruling by another Florida
appeal court.

Man gets death
for double killing
DAYTONA BEACH A
man convicted of a 2008


fatal stabbing has been
sentenced to death.
A Volusia County judge
handed down 28-year-old
Doug Blaine Matthews'
sentence Thursday, fol-
lowing a jury's recom-
mendation. Matthews
was convicted in May of
first-degree murder for the
death of Kirk Zoeller and
manslaughter for the death
of Donna Trujillo.

Economists see
uptick in revenue
TALLAHASSEE State
economists Thursday
made a slight upward
revision in the estimate of
Florida's general revenue
for current and future bud-
get years, but they did not
include anticipated losses
from the Gulf of Mexico
oil spill.
The economists
increased the forecast for
general revenue, which
comes mostly from sales
tax collections, by $260
million, or 1.1 percent, for
the current budget year
that began July 1.
They also added nearly
$334 million, a 1.4 percent
increase, to next year's
projected revenue.

The band has broken
its drill record for the
number of sets the
number of times the band
has to move during the
show learned during
camp, moving from 16
sets in 2008 to 22 sets as
of Thursday.
"It's a lot of hard work
and it's very tiring," said
Andrew Jordan, 17, drum
major.
While the practices are
long and grueling, they
pay off in the end, band
members say.
Sarah Reichert, 18, also
a drum major, said help-

newer bandmates has
been rewarding.
"Maybe they can grow

"Our biggest reward is

The band has received
superior ratings the past
15 years, the highest rat-

They were also named
grand champion of the

2008 and were invited

and died.
The names of the four
victims weren't immediate-
ly released, but the sher-
iff's office says they were
visiting from Tampa.

said at a news conference
that an earlier effort to
temporarily plug the well
may have had the unin-
tended effect of creating a
permanent seal.
However, he cautioned
it's more likely that drill-
ing will continue on two
relief wells, which have
long been said to be the
only way to ensure the
blown-out well doesn't


leak again. That work has
been delayed because of
bad weather and .wouldn't
resume for about another
four days, if testing shows
' it's needed.
Last month, after a cap
meant to be temporary
was fitted on top of the
broken well and halted
the oil flow, crews pumped
in mud and cement from
above in a so-called "static
kill." Some of the cement
may have gone down into
the reservoir, come back
up and plugged the space


between the inner pip-
ing and the outer casing
- which is what engineers
were hoping to do with the
bottom kill, Allen said.
"A bottom kill finishes
this well. The question is
whether it's already been
done with the static kill,"
he said.
Officials are testing
pressure levels in that
space between the inner
piping and outer casing.
Rising pressure means
the bottom kill still needs
to be done, Allen said..

flow from

Gulf spill


The Deepwater
Horizon oil spill may
not produce the
environmental apoc-
alypse in the Gulf
of Mexico that many initially
feared. Nevertheless, those
millions of gallons of crude still
did plenty of damage, not only
to the ecosystem but also to
coastal economies.
There is no question that
those responsible for the disas-
ter primarily BP must
compensate those who suffered
its effects. So far, BP says it has
paid $303 million in claims to
more than 40,000 businesses
and individuals affected by the
oil spill.
The question, though, is
what'constitutes a victim.
As can be expected, when-
ever there's a pool of money
to be distributed, a lot of out-
stretched hands appear.
Where do you draw the line
on who deserves recompense?
The process already is
:becoming a game of six
degrees of separation.
There are of course the easy,
- obvious cases, such as people
whose property was directly
damaged by "petroleum prod-
ucts" and fishermen who could
not earn a living because areas
of the Gulf were closed to
fishing. Then there are tour-
ist-related businesses that
saw marked declines in sales
over previous years because
vacationers avoided what they
feared would be oil-stained
beaches.
However, each step back
from a tangible harm invites
questions of just how many
links the responsibility chain
holds.
As with any downturn in a
market economy, its ripples
radiate far and wide. The Oil
Pollution Act of 1990, passed
after the Exxon Valdez disaster
'in Alaska, allows for indirect
Economic damages. But the
dark crude of the Gulf spill
"has created a vast gray area.
The Obama administrations
claims czar, Kenneth Feinberg,
Recently testified to Congress
'that figuring indirect damages
will be his toughest task.
Where he draws that line will
itself create ripple effects, set-
ting a standard for future disas-
Ster claims.

Mosque opponents not alwaysbigots


A merica is awash
coast-to-coast in
fights over the
building of new
mosques. The
most well-known current dust
up is in New York where for
some unfathomable reason, the
City's Landmarks Preservation
Commission cleared the way to
take down a historic 160-year-
old building to build a mosque.
In its place backers propose a
building as high as 15 stories
called Park 51 that will house
a mosque and an Islamic cen-
ter, according to the New York
Times.
I will address opposition to
Islamic religious institutions
in a moment. My opposition
to, Park 51 is based on the fact
that no historic building remain-
ing in Manhattan (or any other
major city anywhere) should
be completely torn down to
make way for new development.
Instead, as is frequently done
here in Washington, D.C., and
other places, historic facades
should be preserved. Any his-
toric building should be allowed
to live on at least in part as a
landmark to teach city dwellers
about the great history of their
towns.
Historic preservation motives
aside, most opposition to Park
51 has to do with its location
about two blocks from Ground
Zero. With nerves still raw,
the stunning insensitivity of
the developers and backers of
the development (New York
Mayor Michael Bloomberg and
the Jewish Anti-Defamation
League included) are suffering
a severe bout of verbal pistol-
whipping from opponents of
the new mosque. A new Marist
poll shows 53 'percent of New
Yorkers oppose the mosque at
its proposed location.
Opposition would undoubted-
ly be lower if the mosque were

built uptown or in another bor-
ough. There are 1,900 mosques
in the United States according
to the New York Times, many of
them in New York City. But pro-
tests against proposed mosques
are growing more vocal from -
Temecula, Calif. to Sheboygan,
Wis., to Murfreesboro, Tenn.
And the question is being
increasingly asked and argued:
do Muslims have the same
rights as members of other reli-
gious orders to build houses of
worship?
Civil libertarians and liber-
als believe that anti-Islamic
protesters are bigots who
have no right to deny Muslims
equal protection or freedom
of religious expression under
the Constitution. Students
of American history say bias
existed against the nation's
early Catholics, Baptists and
Jews, but ultimately we all
assimilated into one big, happy
(if not dysfunctional) family.
They hope the same will happen
as immigrant Muslims assimi-
late into American society. But
I think there is much more to
'the debate over Middle Eastern
Islam that needs to be consid-
ered.
It goes without saying that
Islam, like Christianity and even
Judaism, comes in different
forms. Muslims, like Christians
and Jews, are for the most part
peace-loving people.
But if one refers to the Bible's


Old and New Testaments, one
will not find anywhere near
the number of solicitations to
violence that one finds in the
Koran. According to the web-
site, faithfacts.org:
"While violence in the Quran
is sometimes for self-defense;
at other times it is open-ended.
Many passages in the Quran
exhort Muslims to hate or
kill or terrorize infidels (non-
Muslims) wherever they find
them. Yes, the Bible has its
share of violence as well, par-
ticularly in the Old Testament
... but ... (incitements to vio-
lence) in the Bible are each a
particular limited circumstance
in time, for a particular purpose
established by God. But in the
Quran, we encounter general
commands to kill and destroy
the enemies of Islam that are
applicable for all times and
places and people groups."
As a matter of national secu-
rity, the United States has no
practical way to distinguish
between the majority of peace-
loving Muslims and the minor-
ity who see it.as their God-given
mission to kill "the enemy." Nor
do we have the resources, quite.
frankly, to spend a lot more time
trying to distinguish between
them. Given that we are fund-
ing two major anti-terrorism
wars and driving ourselves to
bankruptcy in the process, I
believe, people who fear the
establishment of mosques in
their neighborhoods have valid
concerns that civil libertarians
are ignoring. I am not saying in
any way, shape or form that I
would join their protest march-
es. But I think to dismiss them
as a bunch of misguided bigots
is an act we could easily live to
regret.

Rangel: House will have to expel him


Speaker Nancy Pelosi
summoned the House
back to Washington
for what was supposed
to be a showcase days
for the Democrats, approving
billions to save the jobs of teach-
ers and cops and hundreds of
millions to secure the border. '
Instead, the Democrats heard
from someone they'd rather not
hear from their embattled
colleague Charles Rangel, who
is facing a trial-like hearing
before the House ethics com-
mittee on 13 counts of violating
House ethical standards, the
most serious of which are abus-
ing his office and committee
chairmanship to raise money
and misreporting or failing to
report hundreds of thousands of
dollars in income and assets.
Those charges forced him to
step aside as chairman of the
tax-writing Ways and Means
Committee, one of the most
powerful and sought after posts


in the House, and it left his fel-
low lawmakers wondering what
combination of inattention and
sense of entitlement got him
into this mess.
Rangel, .of New York, remains
personally popular and still
respected for his nearly 40-year
career but his colleagues wish
he would reach a deal with the
committee to accept a simple
reprimand or, failing that, qui-
etly resign. Even President
Barack Obama offered a not-
so-gentle hint that he "end his
career with dignity."
But in a meandering, squirm-
inducing 37-minute speech
given under a rarely invoked
point of privilege Rangel made
it clear he was having none
of it. "Hey, if I was you, I may
want me to go awvay too. I am
not going away. I am here," he
said. The only way he was leav-
ing before he was ready was if
his fellow members threw him
out. "Are you going to expel me


from this body?" he challenged.
Rangel only asked that he
not be left "twisting in the wind
until November," but the ethics
panel took two years to get this
far, no date has been set for his
hearing and the Republicans,
given their own checkered past,
would be delighted to see a
Democratic ethics scandal drag
on through the elections.
Rangel, 80, is a decorated
Korean War veteran, honored
by the Army for fighting out of
a Chinese encirclement in sub-
zero weather. Since that battle
he likes to say he's never had a
bad day and, indeed, the title of
his 2007 autobiography was "....
And I Haven't Had a Bad Day
Since."
Now, he said, "I may have to
reassess that statement." Maybe
not exactly bad days ahead for
the venerable lawmaker but cer-
tainly some unpleasant ones.

Immigration:

Why Mexico

stands apart
The biggest problem
with immigration
reform proposals
is how they fail to
treat Mexico as sep-
arate and distinct in the search
for blueprint solutions.
Pragmatists hardly ever take
North American geography
into account. Mexico, the only
Latin American nation in North
America, is the leading origi-
nating country of U.S. immi-
grants. Mexicans form a third
of all foreign-born residents
and two-thirds of Hispanic
immigrants. Nearly all people
'emigrating from Mexico have
a U.S. destination. About one-
in-10 persons born in Mexico
currently live in the U.S,
according to the authoritative
Pew Hispanic Center.
Mexico needs to be thought
about as distinct for these rea-
sons.
Yet, the zero-sum logic
among public intellectuals
basically looks at how one
country's loss is another's
gain. Darrell M. West of
the Brookings Institution
does that in his recent book,
"Brain Gain: Rethinking U.S.
Immigration Policy." He
reasons that for the sake of
U.S. economic-development
interests, our policy should
cherry-pick top-flight foreign-
ers for citizenship. It's like tak-
ing all the marbles, if you' can,
but it actually leads to North
American underdevelopment
In the 1992 debates lead-
ing up to the North American
Free Trade Agreement, labor
and migration issues were
verboten, done as a concession
to labor and the anti-NAFTA
political assault by H. Ross
Perot during the presidential
election that year. There was
no approach to harmonize
the North American econo-
mies. Perot claimed U.S. jobs
would flee to Mexico. Instead
they ended up in China and
other low-wage countries as
well. Our national failure was,
finally, to crack down and form
the long-promised, highly
educated, competitive popula-
tion through public schools to
compete for the top end, not
the middle range, jobs of the
world's economy.
Meanwhile, in the 15 years
since NAFTA passed, trade
with Mexico has increased 400
percent. The giant sucking
sound Perot talked about was
not from north to south but
the reverse, with many people
coming to participate in a U.S.
economy paying six times
theirs.
U.S. agriculture subsidies
have contributed to the folding
of Mexican farms, hence push-
ing surplus farm labor north.
Cross-border trucking remains
inoperative in an unfriendly
free-trade practice.
The lack of progress toward
better living standards, after
there was such great promise,
was one of those tipping-point
factors that has probably
- along with corruption
and lack of judicial reform in
Mexico, arms to gang syndi-
cates from the U.S. and con-
sumer demand for a lot of dope
- contributed significantly to
the terroristic organized crime
spree that's brought havoc to
portions of our neighbor coun-
try.
This is no small matter for
the future of North American.
But getting our house in
order begins with immigration
reform, complemented with
fulfilling NAFTA's promise.
The two go together.
Public opinion has been
deflected by Perot-like isola-
tionist slogans, which if you
think about it, ought to give
you the heebie-jeebies.

Hiring weak: Unemployment claims rise


By CHRISTOPHER RUGABER
AP Economics Writer
WASHINGTON The
economy is looking bleak-
er as new applications for
jobless benefits rose last
week to the highest level in
almost six months.
It's a sign that hiring
remains weak and employ-
ers may be going back to
cutting their staffs. Analysts
say the increase suggests
companies won't be adding
enough workers in August
to lower the 9.5 percent
unemployment rate.
First-time claims for
jobless benefits edged up
by 2,000 to a seasonally
adjusted 484,000, the Labor
Department said Thursday.
That's the highest total
since February. Analysts
had expected claims to fall.
Initial claims have now
risen in three of the last
four weeks and are close
to their high point for the
year of 490,000, reached in
late January. The four-week
average, which smooths
volatility, soared by 14,250
to 473,500, also the highest
since late February.
The report "represents
a very adverse turn in the
labor market, threatening
income growth and con-
sumer spending," Pierre
Ellis, an economist at
Decision Economics, wrote
in a note to clients.
Even the lowest mort-
gage rates in decades are

War-crimes trial opens for youngest Gitmo inmate


By MIKE MELIA
Associated Press

GUANTANAMO BAY
NAVAL BASE, Cuba
- A war-crimes trial for
Guantanamo's youngest
detainee opened Thursday
with prosecutors showing
an al-Qaida video of him
making and apparent-
ly planting bombs in
Afghanistan.
Prosecutors and defense
lawyers offered competing
views of whether Omar
Khadr, who was 15 when
he was captured in 2002,
was capable of acting inde-
pendefitly from the Islamic
extremist father who took
him to Afghanistan.
In the video found in
an al-Qaida compound,
Khadr showed only the
faint beginnings of a mus-
tache. Now a broad-shoul-
dered, full-bearded man of
23, he sat before a military
jury charged with crimes
including spying, support-
ing terrorism and murder
for allegedly throwing a
grenade that killed a U.S.
Special Forces soldier.
Khadr has pleaded not
guilty to all charges.
Prosecutor Jeff
Groharing accused Khadr
ofembracing terrorist ideol-
ogy as his own and describ-
ing operations against U.S.


forces with pride even after
his capture.
"'I am a terrorist trained
by al-Qaida.' Those are
Omar Khadr's own words,"
Groharing said, describ-
ing one of the detainee's
first interrogations at
Guantanamo. "Omar Khadr
decided to conspire with
al-Qaida so he could kill
as many Americans as pos-
sible."
But a Pentagon-appoint-
ed defense lawyer said
Khadr was a victim him-
self, pushed into war as
an impressionable child by
his father, alleged al-Qaida
financier Ahmed Said
Khadr.
"He was there because
his father told him to go
there," Army Lt. Col. Jon
Jackson said. "He was there
because Ahmed Khadr
hated his 'enemies more
than he loved his son."
The first day of testi-
mony adjourned early after
Jackson collapsed while
questioning a witness.
He was hospitalized and
receiving morphine for a
complication related to gall
bladder surgery he under-
went six weeks ago, said
Bryan Broyles, the tribu-
nals' deputy chief defense
counsel.-
Broyles said it was
unclear whether Jackson,


the only attorney autho-
rized to represent Khadr,
would require surgery or
whether he might need
to be flown to the United
States for treatment
The case has been
delayed for years by legal
wrangling and a series of
challenges to the system of
war-crimes trials, known as
military commissions, that
was set up during the Bush
administration and has
been criticized by human
rights groups for not includ-
ing the same protections as
federal courts or traditional
courts-martial.
The Khadr trial is now
the first under the adminis-
tration of President Barack
Obama, who revised the
system to offer more pro-
tections to defendants

Plane crash site work nearly done


By BECKY BOHRER
Associated Press

JUNEAU, Alaska -
Federal investigators have
finished much of their work
at the site of the Alaska
plane crash that killed for-
mer U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens
and four others and has now
shifted focus to interview-
ing survivors and hoisting
the wreckage from a steep
mountainside.
National Transportation
Safety Board Chairwoman
Deborah Hersman said the
focus now turns to inter-
views; tightening the time-
line for details on depar-
ture, recognition the plane
was missing and search
and rescue activities; and
bringing the wrecked plane
down to a hangar for fur-
ther inspection.
There remain plenty of
unanswered questions, with
investigators receiving con-
flicting information as to
when the float plane left a
corporate-owned, lodge for
a fishing camp and when
the wreckage was discov-
ered.
Hersman said some of
that may be due to people's
memories and to the "fog of
an accident." Investigators
hoped that interviews with
those involved includ-
ing with the four survivors
- would help fill in the
blanks. They also request-
ed tapes from the Federal
Aviation Administration to
help nail down the search
and discovery time, and
they were looking to see
if there were any weather
cameras or pilots who were
flying in the area to help
shed light on conditions.

Congressman
misused stationery
WASHINGTON Rep.
Nick Rahall says he
improperly used congres-
sional stationery to ask
a judge for leniency for
his son in a 2005 robbery
case.
The West Virginia
Democrat said in a state-
ment that he should have
used personal stationery
when writing about his son
Nick Joe Rahall.
The elder Rahall says
in the emotion of the
moment, he may have
used the wrong stack of
paper, but that his mes-
sage was "100 percent

Thursday that close to
103,000 service members
Shave completed the sur-
vey, which asks questions
, like how they would react
if assigned to a room with
a gay person.
The Defense
Department had delivered
400,000 surveys to troops
as part of its study on how
it could lift the ban without

Border security

bill worth $600M

ready for Obama


~~ym


By JIM ABRAMS
Associated Press
WASHINGTON -
Determined to show a com-
mitment to stopping the
flow of illegal immigrants,
the Senate convened a spe-
cial session Thursday and
passed a $600 million bill to
put more agents and equip-
ment along the Mexican
border.
The voice vote in the
nearly empty Senate cham-
ber sends the legislation to
President Barack Obama,
who planned to sign it into
law on Friday. Obama had
urged Congress to channel
more money toward border
security amid complaints
from states besieged by
undocumented immigrants'
and illegal drug trafficking.
Sen. Charles Schumer, D-
N.Y., the chief sponsor, said
the measure would provide
Obama and Homeland
Security Secretary Janet
Napolitano "with the boots
on the ground and the
resources necessary to
combat the crime and vio-
lence."
Obama said the bill would
help protect communities
along the Southwest border
and across the country.
"And this new law will
also strengthen our part-
nership with Mexico in
targeting the gangs and


criminal organizations that
operate on both sides of our
shared border," he said in a
statement.
House Democrats had
also called a special ses-
sion, summoning lawmak-
ers back
from their
summer
Tuesday
to pass
the, bor-
der secu-
Obama rity bill
and a $26
billion aid
bill to keep teachers and
other public workers from
being laid off. Both issues
- jobs and border security
- are among those expect-
ed to be on voters' minds
when they go to the polls in
November.
Senate historian Donald
Ritchie said it was only
the second time since the
August break became offi-
cial policy in 1970 that the
Senate had reconvened.
The first time was after
Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
The border security mea-
sure would fund the hiring
of 1,000 new Border Patrol
agents to be deployed at
critical areas along the bor-
der, 250 more Immigration
and Customs Enforcement
agents, and 250 more
Customs and Border
Protection officers.


Senators complete

framework for bill

on US food safety


By KEVIN FREKING
Associated Press
WASHINGTON A
bipartisan, group of sena-
tors said Thursday they
have reached agreement
on legislation designed to
enhance the safety of the
nation's food supply, setting
the stage for the full Senate
to take up the measure later
this year.
The bill would give
the Food and Drug
Administration the power
to order a food recall rather
than merely request one.
The agency would also
increase the frequency
of inspections at process-
ing plants and other facili-
ties. The food industry
itself would help pay for
the increased inspections
through additional fees.
Each year, more than
300,000 Americans are hos-
pitalized and 5,000 die after
consuming contaminated
foods and beverages. Large
recalls involving spinach,
tomatoes, peppers and


lettfice led lawmakers to
attempt to strengthen food
safety laws.
The bill does not contain
a proposal by Sen. Dianne
Feinstein,
D-Calif.,
to ban a
chemical
widely
w, used to
line .food
cans, but
she plans
Feinstein to offer
an amend-
mH e n t
when the bill goes to the
Senate floor that would
ban Bisphenol A from
baby bottles, baby food
and infant formula. The
chemical has been linked
in animal studies to repro-
ductive and neurological
disorders.
The House has already
approved a food safety bill.
Supporters are lobbying
Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid to hold a vote
on the Senate version next
month.

Law enforcement place Michael Mara, 53 (second from
right), the so-called 'Grandad Bandit,' in the back of a police
car Wednesday, after he was arrested at his home in Baton
Rouge La. Mara is wanted in the robberies of at least 25
banks in 13 states since December 2008.


Two-year search: h

'Grandad Bandit' I


suspect is caught


By MELINDA DESLATTE
Associated Press

BATON ROUGE, La.
- The so-called "Granddad
Bandit" suspected of rob-
bing banks in 13 states elud-
ed authorities for about two
years even as he stayed in
plain, unremarkable sight.
- Michael Francis Mara,
52, had recently moved into
a modest home in Baton
Rouge with his new wife,
a schoolteacher. She told
neighbors about his fre-
quent business trips around
the country.
But authorities say he
is connected to a string of
25 robberies beginning in
Richmond, Va., in 2008 and
passing through Alabama,
Texas, Georgia, Arkansas,
Kansas, New York, Florida,
Oklahoma, Mississippi,
Tennessee; Kentucky
and Missouri but. not
Louisiana.
The trail ended
Wednesday when police
and FBI agents acting on
a tip surrounded his home
and he surrendered peace-
fully after a six-hour stand-
off.
Last week, the FBI began
posting pictures of the
"Granddad Bandit" on bill-
boards across the country,
saying he was connected
to a string of robberies dat-
ing back to a 2008 hold-
up of a SunTrust Bank in
downtown Richmond. U.S.
Attorney Neil MacBride
in the Eastern District of
Virginia credited the bill-
oards with helping catch
Mara.
According to an FBI affi-
davit filed Friday in federal
court in Virginia, the FBI
received a tip last week
from someone who identi-
fied Mara as the robber
and gave authorities pho-
tographs to match to bank
surveillance videos.
. A hat, eyeglasses and
wristwatch were among the
items that appeared to be
identical between the pho-
tographs and surveillance
footage, officials said.
The documents say Mara
had worked and may
still work for a vehicle
transportation company,
giving him the ability to
easily travel to other states.
Earlier this year, Mara
rented a car for 52 days
and logged 9,669 miles, the
affidavit says. During that
time, three robberies in
three different states were
connected to the "Granddad


Bandit."
The rest of his back-
ground wasn't immediately
known.
Gerry Hunt, a 65-year-
old retiree who lives next
door, said Mara moved to
the pale yellow house with
the white trim when he
married his schoolteacher
wife, Patsy, just over a year
ago. Hunt said she didn't-
see Mara much because
he said he traveled for his
job, claiming' to work for
FEMA on disaster recovery
issues.
"We really didn't know
him. (His wife) would
always say he was going
out of town, and now that
I think about it, every-
where he went, banks were
robbed," Hunt said, list-
ing trips to Tennessee and
Arkansas among those she
was told about.
Hunt said Mara acted
as though he had a law
enforcement background,
and she insisted Mara's wife
couldn't have known about
the robberies her husband
allegedly committed.
"She absolutely knew
nothing," Hunt said. "I'm
sure she's just as baffled as,
everyone else is."
Officials said Mara would
be placed in the custody of
the U.S. Marshal's Service
and appear before a magis-
trate judge in Baton Rouge
before being transferred to
Virginia to face the federal
charges. If convicted of the
Virginia bank robbery, he
faces 20 years in prison.
It was unclear if the rob-
ber was actually a grand-
father. FBI agents said the
nickname was devised to
help law enforcement and
the public easily identify
the suspect. "He just looks
like everyone's granddad,"
FBI supervisory special
agent Amanda Moran said
last week.
The "Granddad Bandit"
was described as a 45-to-60-
year-old white man, about
6 feet tall and 230 pounds,
balding with short grayish
hair on the sides. He usually
wore wire-rimmed glasses,
short-sleeved collared shirts
and ball caps.
In the robberies, the sus-
pect waited patiently in
line and handed the teller
a note demanding a spe-
cific amount of money.
Sometimes, he made ges-
tures indicating he had a
weapon, although agents
said there was no indication
he ever actually used one.

'Brute' of

a coach
F ew bonds are
as strong as
that of player
and coach.
One that
has endured for almost
60 years is that of Stan
Anders and coach
Broughton Williams.
Williams came to
Columbia High in 1951
and inherited a team
that included future
college players Gene
Cox and Ralph Tyre, as
well as Anders. Williams
led the Tigers to a 10-0
record, the first perfect
season at the school
since 1932.
The following year
Columbia went 7-3, and
Williams left Columbia
and football. He returned
to Tampa and opened
the Broughton Williams
School for preschool
children which operated
for 12 years.
Anders recently spoke
with Williams, who will
be 88 in September and
still lives in Tampa..
Williams was born
in Milton and played at
Marianna High, before
moving to Plant High
where he played
football and basketball.
The Panthers won the
state championship in
basketball his senior
year of 1941.
Having committed to
Florida football while
at Marianna, Williams
played for the Gators. in
1941-42 before entering
the Army. Williams
landed on Normandy
Beach and was awarded
five battle stars.
Returning from the
service as a sergeant,
Williams again played
for Florida in 1946. The
Gators were 0-9 that
season, but Williams won
All-SEC recognition as an
end. He also caught the
eye of the pros,
including Bears' owner
George Halas.
Halas first contacted
Williams in December
1945, after the Bears
drafted him while he was
in the military.
Williams opted to
return to Florida and
was one of the few bright
spots before injuring
his knee in the seventh
game.
In January 1947,
Williams was offered a
pro contract for a salary
of $5,000 by the New
York Yankees Football
Club. Williams passed up
the offer to sign with the
Bears.
In college Broughton
Williams was tagged with
the nickname "Brute." At
6-foot-4 he was called a
giant, but Halas ordered
him to report to training
camp at a maximum of
208 pounds.
Williams was sent
letters from Halas
regarding training camp
and his summer fitness
regimen on May 29 and
June 17 of 1947.
One line: "But if you
haven't started (training),
get off that big, lazy duff
of yours and go to work."

Seminoles replace
legendary head
football coach.
By BRENT KALLESTAD

TALLAHASSEE Jimbo
Fisher has .an edge as he
kicks off a new era at Florida
State: The Seminoles' new
head coach helped recruit
most of his players the last
four years.
It won't take him long to
find out how good a job he's
done.
After a warmup against
lower-division Samford
(Ala.), the Seminoles
travel to Oklahoma and
then host Brigham Young
before beginning their 2010
Atlantic Coast Conference
schedule.
Fisher is replacing the
iconic Bobby Bowden, who
departed after chalking up


That also was the goal
under Leavitt, who start-
ed USF's program from
scratch in the 1990s and
presided over a meteoric
rise from a cluster of trail-
ers to BCS conference sta-
tus. The Leavitt era came
to an end after a messy
scandal cost him his job fol-
lowing the Bulls' fifth con-
secutive bowl appearance
last winter.
USF is the only BCS
school in the country to
begin each of the past three
seasons with at least five
straight victories. But the
Bulls also have been viewed
underachievers because
each of those strong starts
was followed by a midsea-
son slide dropping them
out of the Top 25 and con-
tention for a Big East title.
'Holtz led East Carolina,
which had lost 22 of its 25


377 career wins. That's sec-
ond most in major college
history behind Penn State's
Joe Paterno.
Rather than give Bowden
a chance to get back on
top one last time, former
Florida State president T.K.
Wetherell replaced him in
January to give Fisher a
shot at a fast start with a
team both coaches believe
could hit the jackpot in
2010.-
"We're recruiting good
players and getting guys to
do the right thing," Fisher
said. "The thing we've got
to understand is how to win,
how little things add up to
big things and you don't put
yourself behind the eight
ball all the time."
That's exactly where
Florida State was for much
of last season. Only a come-
from-behind Gator Bowl
victory over West Virginia
in Bowden's finale avoided


previous games prior to his
arrival in 2005, to the past
two Conference USA cham-
pionships.
The Bulls lured Holtz
away from the Pirates with
a $9.1 million, five-year con-
tract after Leavitt was fired
for mistreating a player
who had accused the for-
mer coach of grabbing him
by the throat and slapping
him in the face twice during
halftime of a game.
The 46-year-old welcomes
the challenge of stepping
into the Big East and try-
ing to transform the Bulls,
ranked as high as No. 2 in
the country in 3007, into an
elite program. .

techniques work for
defenses at all levels.
"Those are things, no
matter what level of foot-
ball you're at, you have to
do," he said.
Among the new players
he'll break in is true fresh-
man defensive end Ronald
Powell. Powell was one of
the highest regarded play-
ers in the country accord-
ing to multiple recruit-
ing sights, and he'll be
counted upon at a position
which lost two starters to
the NFL.
Powell doesn't see the
drop off.
'The defensive line looks
great," he said. "We're
working hard every day.
They're coaching us to go
hard every day."
Despite Austin being
new to the Florida coach-
ing stable, there are a host
of returning defensive
assistants for the Gators.
Among them is Powell's
defensive line coach, Dan
McCarney.
"I love him," Powell
said. "He's a great guy.
He pushes every guy the
same and doesn't have any
favorites. He's a go-go-go-
go type of guy."
It's that unrelenting atti-
tude that' has provided the
Gators with one of the top
pass rushes in the coun-
try under Strong. Austin
intends on having the
defense compete for play-
ing time throughout the fall
practice schedule.
"Every guy is competing
for starting cornerback, it
doesn't matter where you
line up or what 6rder,"


JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
University of Florida defensive coordinator Teryl Austin
answers questions from the media on Tuesday in
Gainesville.


Austin said. "We're trying
to find out who the best
guys are right now so we
have spirited competition.
What's really important
is how they're doing now
and what they're doing
now. We've got to have our
best guys on the field in a
month."
One player that Austin
has felt flew under-the-
radar for the Gators is
senior defensive end Duke
Lemmens. Lemmens was


behind Carlos Dunlap and
Jermaine Cunningham
for much of last season,
but with both in the NFL,
Austin feels like it can be
Duke's time.
"Duke, like a lot of our
players, was behind some
very talented football
players the past couple of
years," he said. "Duke is a
hard-nosed, hard-chargin,
very active football player. I
think he is going to do well
for us this season."

SAdding more weight to NFL


ASSOCIATED PRESS
In this July 29 file photo, Cincinnati Bengals guard Bobbie
Williams (63) looks on during football training camp in
Georgetown, Ky.


By EDDIE PELLS
Associated Press

Ten or 20 years ago, Nate
Newton and William "The
Refrigerator" Perry were on
a short list of larger-than-
life rarities in the NFL. The
300-plus-pound behemoths
made headlines simply for
existing. Their every move
shook the field and made
people take notice.
These days, though, play-
ers their size hardly make
a dent. Such is life in the
ever-expanding world of the
NFL. i
An analysis of league ros-
ters shows the number of
300-pounders has risen dra-
matically over the decades:
From a single player (Gene
Ferguson of the Chargers)
in 1970, to three in 1980, 94
in 1990, 301 in 2000 and 394
in 2009.
"Amazing, if you think
about it," said Michele
Macedonio, who has
worked -as a nutritionist for
the Cincinnati Bengals for
most of the past decade,
when told of that figure.
"The question they have
to ask is, 'How big is big
enough and when do we
stop getting bigger and
think more about getting
stronger and healthier and
better?"'
Like workers in any com-

petitive business, NFL line-
men know what they have
to. do to keep their jobs,
and in this case that means
staying big. So, this August
is once again littered with
scenes of 300-pounders
sweating through hot train-
ing camp practices. The
dangers of the combination
of heat, sweat and weight
were brought to the fore
in 2001, when 335-pound
Korey Stringer died of heat
stroke during camp. There
haven't been any heat-relat-
ed deaths in the NFL since,
which in turn has dulled
the debate. over whether
the NFL is becoming an
overweight league.
But the biggest players
never forget the perilous
edge they're on. They live
with it every day.

PGA: Woods opens with even par at 4th major


Continued From Page 11

times were pushed back
3 hours and 10 minutes
because of fog that shroud-
ed Whistling Straits.
"I played too good not
to shoot under par, and it
would have been very dis-
appointing and frustrating
to end up at even par as well
as I played today," Woods
said. 'To shoot under par
just feels like. less than I
should have shot for the
way I played today, and
that's a good feeling."
Seeing Woods atop the
leaderboard so early at a
tournament, even a major,
wouldn't ordinarily count
as big news.
But there is nothing ordi-
nary about Woods these
days.
His personal life has
started to "normalize" after
months of tawdry details
about his rampant infi-
delities. But he arrived at
Whistling Straits fresh off
the worst performance of
his career, shooting a whop-
ping 18-over 298 and beat-
ing only one player in the
80-man field at Firestone
- a course where he's
won seven times.
He's broken par in only
four of his last 20 rounds,
and is in danger of losing
the No. 1 ranking he's held
for a record 270 weeks in
a row.
When the fog cleared,
however, there was a
glimpse of the old Woods.


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Tiger Woods drops his club as he drives on the fifth hole during the first round of the PGA
Championship golf tournament Thursday, at Whistling Straits in Haven; Wis.


Starting on the back
nine, he birdied three of
his first four holes and
found himself in a share
of the lead. But he missed
three birdie chances
before he made the turn
and started spraying shots
around the course on his
back nine.
"It felt good to be a little
bit more steady today,"
Woods said.
. But he's still chasing
players he used to beat
routinely on his way to 14
major titles, four shy of
Jack Nicklaus' record.
The PGA has a history
of producing some unex-
pected winners this,


after all, is where John
Dialy went from alternate
to major champion but
everything seems to be
wide open these days. Five
of the last six major were
won by first-timers, includ-
ing the U.S. Open (Graeme
McDowell) and British
Open (Louis Oosthuizen).
'And, of course, last year's
'PGA, where Y.E. Yang
became the first player to
beat Woods when he held
the 54-hole lead at a major.
"You just look at the lea-
derboard, there's a lot of
different flavor up there,"
Day said.
Watson, who picked up
his first PGA Tour win


earlier' this year at the
Travelers Championship,
is one of the tour's lon-
gest hitters. But it was his
scrambling ability that paid
off on the long, links-style
course.
"It just keeps the
momentum," Watson said.
"If I don't get up-and-down
and up-and-down a couple
of times today, my momen-
tum could shift. It might
not, but it could shift and
not go the right direction
and I could be made the
rest of the day. So I just
held it together. I made
some key putts that I need-
ed to make, and now I'm
here."

magnified.... But that's the
arena you want to be in,"
Holtz said. "That's why I'm
here. That's the environ-
ment you want to play in,
coach in. Those are the
games you want to be in."
With 15 starters return-
ing from a team that had
five players selected in this
year's NFL draft, Holtz
inherits a much more tal-
ented team than he was
able to turn into a winner
at East Carolina.
Nine regulars are back
on offense, including quar-
terback B.J. Daniels, who
beat Florida State on the
road in his first college
start last season.
Daniels completed
nearly 54 percent of his
passes for 1,983 yards,
14 touchdowns and nine
interceptions while lead-
ing the Bulls to an 8-5 fin-
ish, including a win in the
International Bowl. The
sophomore also led the


team in rushing with 772
yards and nine TDs, which
will not happen again if
Holtz is able to get run-
ning back Moise Plancher
(581 yards, five TDs) more
involved.
"He is a young quar-
terback. A very talented
young quarterback, but
still a young quarterback,"
said Holtz, adding Daniels
has the talent to excell in
the Bulls' new offensive
system.
"When you look at the
teams that are competing
for conference champion-
ships, most of them are
being driven by junior and
senior quarterbacks that
have been in the programs
for four and five years and
had a chance to really
develop, not just physically
but mentally. ... B.J. is not
there. But what I feel com-
fortable about is he's going
to get there because of his
desire, attitude and work-


ing as hard as he can."
One of the biggest
questions Holtz has yet to
resolve is who Daniels will
be throwing to.
The Bulls lost leading
receiver Carlton Mitchell
to the NFL draft, and
injuries to A.J. Love and
Sterling Griffin have left
the team with a shortage
of experienced receiv-
ers heading into the
Sept. 4 season opener
against Stony Brook.
Another unknown is
how good the Bulls can
be on defense, especially
early, after replacing ends
Jason Pierre-Paul (first
round) and George Selvie
(seventh round), safety
Nate Allen (second round)
and cornerback Jerome
Murphy (third round).
Holtz, who's 72-50 in 1W)
seasons as a head coach,
isn't making any predic-
tions.
The conference sched-


ule includes home games
against conference pre-
season favorite Pittsburgh,
Syracuse, Rutgers and
Connecticut, as well as
road dates against West
Virginia, Cincinnati and
Louisville.
A long-range goal is ele-
vating USF to the level of
Florida, Florida State and
Miami. Road opportuni-
ties against the Gators in
September and Hurricanes
in November could provide
a barometer of where the
Bulls stand on that front.
Ready or not, !loltz is
excited about the new
beginning.
"It has been an abso-
lute whirlwind. A lot of
new faces, a lot of things
have changed," Holtz said
before the start of fall
practice. "We have a no
nonsense type of mental-
ity. They realize and under-
stand everything we've got
to get accomplished."


FSU: Fisher takes over
Continued From Page 1B


guard Rodney Hudson and
center Ryan McMahon,
both seniors. Juniors
Andrew Datko and David
Spurlock also return as
starters.
Christian Ponder, who
was playing as good as any
quarterback in the coun-
try when he went down
with a shoulder injury last
November, is back for his
senior year. Florida State is
promoting him as a Heisman
Trophy candidate.
Fisher also will try to find
playing time for redshirt
sophomore EJ Manuel. He
accounted for four touch-
downs and 1,013 yards
offense while leading the
Seminoles to a 3-1 record as
Ponder's replacement.
While the 6-2, 220-pound
Ponder's career numbers
are modest, NFL scoutsare
projecting him as a likely
first-round pick.
Fisher said Ponder's
character and academic
achievements besides an
undergraduate degree hole's
already earned a master's
in business administration
- make a statement.
"He does not want to
be average in anything he
does, and he's willing to
put the sweat in to 'get the
glory," Fisher said. "He
really doesn't look at it as
glory. I think he just looks
at it as who he is. That's his
DNA."
Ponder, though, has lost
one of his favorite targets.
FisheronSundayannounced
he had dismissed junior
Jarmon Fortson from the
team for an undisclosed pol-
icy violation but he's confi-
dent the receiving corps is
deep enough to withstand
the loss.
Junior Bert Reed, returns
after catching 60 passes
for 710 yards last season.
Rodney Smith, a 6-6, 220-
pound sophomore, likely
will slip into Fortson's
starting position, Fisher
said. Fortson's depar-
ture also will mean more
opportunities for junior
Taiwan Easterling, sopho-
more Willie Haulstead and
freshmen Kenny Shaw and
Christian Green.
Florida State looks just as
solid at running back. After
a spirited competition, 5-8,
186-pound ChrisThompson,
a sophomore, has gone to
the top of the depth chart at
tailback. He beat out 5-11,
190-pound junior Jermain
Thomas who started last
year, gaining 832 yards at
the rate of 5.1 yards per
carry. Thompson was just
as prolific in a backup role
at 5.2 yards per carry but
got the ball only 23 times.


Besides the speedy
Thompson and Thomas,
the Seminoles have bulk
when they need it in 6-
0, 209 pound sophomore
Lonnie Pryor and 6-0, 235
pound junior college trans-
fer Debrale Smiley.
Albeit personable and
upbeat, the 44-year-old
Fisher's coaching style dif-
fers from the effervescent
Bowden's. His approach is
process driven and more
resembles another of his
old bosses, Alabama's Nick
Saban. Fisher, who was
Saban's offensive coordina-
tor at Louisiana State, calls
it "the. modernization of
the way things are being
done."
While Bowden built
Florida State with unusu-
al candor and openness,
Fisher seeks perfection
in secretive and selective
ways and has a more hands-
on approach.
A pair of sophomores,
cornerback Greg Reid
and place-kicker Dustin
Hopkins, anchor the special
teams. Reid led the nation
in punt returns a year ago.
Hopkins' booming kick-
offs and long-range field
goals invoked memories of
Scott Bentley and Sebastian
Janikowski, whose accurate
and powerful legs helped
propel the Seminoles to
national titles in 1993 and
1999.
Although only 5-8 and
170 pounds, Reid is being
looked to as a playmaker in
a defense woefully short of
them in recent seasons.
Florida State (7-6, 4-4
ACC) opens its league sea-
son Sept. 26 with a visit
from Wake Forest. The
Seminoles sandwich road
trips to Virgina, Miami
and North Carolina State
around a mid-October visit
from Boston College before
a brutal November. It fea-
tures home games against
North Carolina, Clemson
and a trip to Maryland
before hosting the tradition-
al non-conference rivalry
game with Florida.
"Your ultimate goal and
the first objective, if you
want to get back to' the
BCS, you've got to win your
conference," Fisher said.
Not an easy task urger
any circumstances, but
Fisher's trying it n th-
glare of Bowden's legacy
even though a decade has
passed since his last nation-
al title.
"The 90s are over,"
Fisher said. "Worry about
doing things right and the
direction you're going. If
that happens, winning will
come."

DEAR ABBY


Dog owners ignore warnings

of girl's allergy to their pets


DEAR ABBY: My 6-year-
old daughter, "Meg," has se-
vere eczema. She's highly al-
lergic to a long list of things,
including dogs. Recently,
at a basketball court and at
an outdoor restaurant, we
encountered some dog own-
ers who refused to pull their
dogs back after I informed
them about her allergy. Both
said, "It's a public place!" as
if my daughter should not be
in public. One man even ar-
gued that my child "couldn't
possibly" be allergic to. his
poodle.
I take my children out
in public often, and I never
allow them to touch other
people. Why can't dog own-
ers understand the concept?
Other than avoiding public
areas that are dog friendly,
and pulling my dauigh-
ter away whenever she's
touched by a dog, what can
I do? MOM KNOWS
BEST, IRVINE, CALIF.
DEAR MOM: The idea
that dog owners would fail
to pull their animals back
after being told someone
was highly allergic shocks
me. However, because you
can't make everyone behave
responsibly, you will have to
"dog proof' your daughter.
At 6, she's old enough to
understand the reason she's
broken out and itching is
because she came in con-
tact with one of the things to


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearobby.com
which she is allergic. Teach
her to stay out of reach and
to announce loudly, "Please
hold your dog back! I'm al-
lergic!" when the situation
calls for it. And if you are
with her and see someone
with an animal approach,
YOU should take the initia-
tive and say emphatically,
"My daughter is highly aller-
gic to dogs. PLEASE keep it
away from my child!"
And while I'm at it, no
child or adult should
ever touch a strange dog
without the owner's per-
mission because you never
know how the animal might
react.
DEAR ABBY: I work at
the front desk of a construc-
tion company. My work area
is located in the lobby. I'm
responsible for greeting visi-
tors, answering the phone,
typing letters and other ad-
ministrative tasks. The only
thing separating me from
the visitors is a 12-inch-high
counter that surrounds my
desk.
Quite often, visitors must


wait several minutes for the
person they're seeing to
come to the lobby. When
they do, they often plant
both arms on the counter,
drape themselves over the
top and scan every piece of
paper on the surface of my
desk; including what's show-
ing on my computer screen.
They also try to converse
with me while I'm trying to
work and answer the phone.
I find this rude, inappropri-
ate and an invasion of my
personal work space.
How can I convey this
to visitors without coming
across as rude and jeopar-
dizing the company's rela-.
tionship with them? Desk
modifications are not an
option. BITING MY
TONGUE IN UPSTATE
NEW YORK
DEAR BITING YOUR
TONGUE: Ask your boss
how sensitive the correspon-
dence you are handling is,
and explain that it is being
viewed by' clients who walk
in. Some offices handle the
problem by keeping docu-
ments face down when they
are not being worked on.
Also, consider tilting your
computer monitor and in-
stalling a privacy screen to
block the view.

HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Focus on the
ones you love and the things
you enjoy doing most. Take
care of your needs and de-
sires and plan something
romantic for late in the day.
When opportunity knocks,
be ready to take advantage.

TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): Don't .believe
everything you are told.
Ask questions and you will
avoid making a financial
mistake. The future looks
bright if you make changes
conducive to your advance-
ment. ***
GEMINI (May 21-
June 20): If you are fun to
be with and use diplomacy,
you will impress the people
who mean the most to you
and send a strong mes-
sage to anyone trying to
manipulate you. A physical
challenge or shopping for
something that will contrib-
ute to your looks will result
in compliments. *****
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): You will be able
to rationalize anything but,
the fact of the matter is that,
no one else will see things
your way. Expect to go it
alone or to face opposition
in family matters or work
that influences your house-
hold. Now is not the time
to make impulsive moves.


THE LAST WORD,
Eugenia Last


LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): A short trip will do you
good. Spending time with
friends or relatives or meet-
ing people who inspire you
will bring you greater en-
thusiasm to reach for your
goals. Someone from your
past will influence you now
if you reconnect. ****
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): One look at your per-
sonal papers and you will
know what needs to be
done. Extra money is with-
in reach via an investment,
payoff, contract, winning or
debt owed. ***
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct.
22): Sign up for something
that will allow you to ex-
press yourself creatively.
Sitting around home will
' lead to an unsavory situa-
tion with someone. A part-
nership with someone who
shares your concerns and
interests will lead to greater
prosperity. ***
SCORPIO (Oct 23-
Nov. 21): A little push will
enable you to meet new
friends and to find ways to
network, so be a partici-
. pant. Mixing business with
pleasure will get you closer
to your goals and lead you
to people who can help.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): You will
always face some opposi-
tion but, right now, you
will overrule the critical
onlooker who wants you to
fail. Stand tall and present
your ideas with gusto and
you will gain ground and
make new friends. ****
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): You are like-
ly to ruin your reputation if
you are bullheaded. Focus
on what you must do to
make life better financially,
emotionally and physically.
Spend less time traveling or
engaging in group endeav-
ors. **
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Money and per-
sonal gains should be on
your mind. Present what
you have to offer to the peo-
ple you have known forever
and you will get support
and a possible partnership
to help you move forward
fast. *****
PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Take a great-
er interest in what others
are doing. It's your care
of the people around you
and those in your past that
should grab your attention
now. Your insight and abil-
ity to listen will help rebuild
an old friendship. ***
