Smentary-age students in
the district
That project: Building stanton
and using power houses
small houses that have alternative
energy sources like solar power or wind
power --- for multiple classroom experi-
ments to .explore renewable energy.
Students working with the power houses
will then write an elementary-style book
with both fiction and non-fiction co~m-
ponents based on renewable energy;to
.share wcith elementary students, Stanton
said

chase the power houses, a purchase

Warrant needed
for 'sniff test'
TALIAHASSEE The
Flonida Supreme Court
has ruled that police mixst
get a warrant before they
can do a "sniff test"' ly a
.drug-detection dog at the
front door of a hon~ie.
The court released its
5-2 opinion on Thursday.
Police went to a Miami-
Dade home in-2006 with
a drug-sniffing dog after
getting an unverified tip
that marijuana was being
grown inside. They later
arrested the resident and
seized marijuana plants
and growing equipment. .
The court's majority
said police should have
gotten a warrant before
showing up. Those justices
said a drug dog's sniff
test at a private residence
is a search under the
Constitution.

solve the crime, he said.
'"I know it will help,"
Williams said. "$5,000 is
a lot of money. It's going
to come to the point that
somebody's going to say,
especially with the econo-
my like it is now, that 'I can
use $5,000 for doing what'S
right,' and doing what's
right is turning in the ones
that did this.
Residents with informa-
tion to the crime can anony-
mously call Crime Stoppers
of Columbia County at
(386) 754-7099.
Hopefully Evans' dona-
tion will spur others to
contribute to the reward,
Williams said. To make a
donation, call the Coluinbia
County Sheriff's Office at
(386) 752-9212 or Williams
at the county office at (386)
758-1005.
Evans said she hopes'
her match will encourage
someone to come forward
with the information.
"Hopefully increasing
the reward will make some-
body change their mind,"
she said. "Maybe it'll give
somebody a reason to come
on ahead and help us find
out who did this."

said Jacob James, founder
and lead investigator of the
team. .
"So many people were
interested and a lot have not

"A lot of people were asking
when we going to bring the

Williams said the value of the tax

Evans, owner of Dees-

main cash crop in Columbia
County and the park's barn
was one of more than 1,100
tobacco barns that stood

Evans' family, along with

To the editor:
Last year, the Florida
Legislature passed SB 550, which
mandated septic tank inspec-
tions for all Floridians with sep-
tic tanks. This was to take effect
Jan. 1, 2011. As word began to
get out, public outcry became
huge and during the election
season many of our elected of~fi-
cials admitted that this had been
a terrible mistake and promised
full repeal in the 2011 session.
On Nov. 16, 2010, while in
Tallahassee to be sworn in, the
legislators held a quick session
to delay the implementation date
to July 1, 2011, again with a
promise to do a full repeal when
they went into regular session.
Since they went mnto session
in Marach, the House has gotten
a bill through committee (HB
13) which appears to be a good
repeal of SB 550. The Senate, on
the other hand, has a perfectly
good bill, SB 168, but they won't
let it go mnto committee because
they say it cannot pass. Sen.
('harles Dean proposed another
'repeal" bill, SB 1698, and it has
been allowed to go through the
committees. SBl698 started out
as a mediocre repeal bill, but has
now been watered down in com
mittee so badly that it caused me
to write Sen. Dean a letter and
ask why he is ev~n bothering
with it. It originally had an "opt
out" provision which would allow
our local governments to deter-
mine whether an inspection pro-
gram was even needed.
One of the first things put
back in are counties that have
fist magnitude springs will not
be allowed to opt out. This takes
in 12 of the 13 counties in Sen.


Dean's district. Then they put in
no opt-out for counties that have
an "impaired watershed" (this
is a river, stream or other body
of water that the Environmen'tal
Protection Agency people have
determined to be somewhat pol-
luted). Now we are up to 57 out
of 67 counties that will have man-
clatory septic tank inspections.
I spoke to one of the aides in
Sen. Dean's office, who told me
that Sen. Dean wants repeal and
was one of the biggest oppo-
nents last year of SB 550. I went
back and looked at some of the
history of SB 550 and to my
surprise Sen. Dean voted yes
for this bill! How can you be an
opponent of something and vote
yes for it? How can you say you
are for repeal and then allow all
of these amendments which take
away the repeal of the bill?
Several of us have asked to
sit down with Sen. Dean and
discuss this issue. All have been
told that he didn't have time to sit
down with us (his constituents).
In the committee hearing on
Monday, April 11, several groups
(Sierra Club, Onsite Wastewater
Assoc., Florida Realtors, Nature
Conservancy, etc.) got up in sup-
port of the bill as it is now and
thanked Sen. Dean for sitting
down with them to discuss this
legislation. '
I am extremely upset that he
is willing to sit down with them,
but not with his own constitu-
ents.
Floridians need to realize
what a gross overreach of power
SB550 is. It violates our fourth
amendment guaranteed right
to be "secure in our persons,
houses ... against unreasonable


searches." It opens the door
for all kinds of fraud and abuse
by both government and septic
tank companies, it requires what
most likely will be an unneces-
sary expense by people who may
not be able to afford this. Most
of us are responsible people who
would not do anything to harm
their own water supply, nor the
water supply of others. If there
are areas in Florida where there
are problems, let the local offi
cials handle it. If for any reason it
isn't handled locally, then let the
state step in. Don't require all
of us to undergo this ridiculous
inspection program.
I asked for an appointment
with the Senator and was told
that I really don't need to come to
Tallahassee obviously, some-
one needs to go to Tallahassee
to watch what is being done to
us each and every year. I intend
to become much more vigilant
in looking for a good candidate
for each elected office as they
come up for election. It is more
and more important that we put
people' in office whoa re first
and foremost, constitutionally
grounded, and people who real-
ize that they work for us, not the
other way around. Unfortunately,
I did not get this impression for
Sen. Dean's office.
I urge all of you who are inter-
ested in this issue to go to www.
fl~senate.gov; type in SB 1698 and
read the bill as it stands now. It is
only 22 pages long and will open
your eyes. Then please let your
senator and representative know
how you feel on this issue.

analogy. English majors and
others equally unemployable
will grasp that the farmer's
mule is like our government
- stubborn, hungry, stupid
and forever baying in working
for the nation. The hay is like
the revenue.
Although mules may resem-
ble Democratic donkeys, what
is described here is the basic
Republican attitude toward
taxation.
Rep. I aul Ryan, the
Wisconsin Republican who is
chairman of the House Budget
Committee, recently came out
with his party's vision of what
a budget should look like. It
had more razor cuts than were
ever dealt by Sweeney Todd,
the demon barber of Fleet
Street.
As for new revenue, Ryan
would not only keep the
Bush tax cuts for the richest
Americans but also give them<
further breaks because, you
know, they are so needy. His
party's standard fairy tale view
is that cutting taxes always
produces more revenue.
Sometimes, not always. There
eventually comes a point when
it won't work. Just ask the
1ue
mln short, Ryan's plan is a new
version of Marie Antoinette's
old idea the rich get to eat
more cake, the poor get to
eat such crumbs as are left in
Medicare and Medicaid. And


all because the GOP believes
that "~Thou Shalt Not Tax" is an
actual commandment.

HOLBROOK MOHR
Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS -With
everything Big Oil and the
government have learned
in the year since the Gulf
of Mexico disaster, could it
happen again? Absolutely,
according to an Associated
Press examination of the
industry and interviews
with experts.0n the perils
of deep-sea drilling.
The government has
given the K I for oil explo-
ration in treacherously
deep waters to resume,
saying it is confident such
drilling can be done safely.
The industry has given
similar assurances. But
there are still serious ques-
tions in some quarters
about whether the lessons
of the BP oil spill have
been applied.
The industry "is ill-pre-
pared at the least," said
Charles Perrowl, a Yale
University professor spe-
cializing in accidents involv-
ing high-risk technologies.
"I have seen no evidence
that they have marshaled
containment efforts that
are sufficient to deal with
another major spill. I don't
think they have found ways
to change the corporate
culture sufficiently to pre-
vent future accidents."
He added: "There are
so many opportunities for
things to -go wrong that
major spills ai e unavoid-
able."
The worst offshore oil
spill in U.S. history began
with an explosion April 20,
2010, that killed 11 work-
ers aboard the Deepwater
Horizon rig.:M~ore than 200
million gallons of crude
spewed from the well a
mile beneath the sea.
Since then, new drilling
rules have been imposed,
a high-tech system for cap-
ping a blown-out well and
containing the oil has been
built, and regulators have
taken' steps to ramp up
oversight of thie industry.
But deep-sea drilling


care overhaul, strengthen-
ing the Legislature's hand
in redrawing cdongressio-
nal and legislative districts
and giving home buyers an
extra property tax exemp'
tion if they hadn't owned
a house for at least eight
years.
'"The way to solve the
problem is not by changing
the fundamental character
and independence of our
judiciary," Graham added.
He also mentioned that
the new civil division would
likely consider a lawsuit he
is involved in over who has
authority to set tuition for
the state's public universi-
ties. Graham sued to estab-
lish the state university sys-
tem's Board of Governors
as the body responsible for
setting tuition, intending
to curtail political interfer-
ence.
Charles Hobbs, former
general counsel for the
Florida State Conference of
the NAACP, said he was
concerned over plans to
change the state's judicial
nominating commssions.
One measure would
remove The Florida Bar
from the'process of recom-
mending people to serve
on those commissions and
replace it with the attorney
general's office, currently
held by Republican -Pam
Bondi.
Hobbs said his concern
is that many blacks and
non-Cubain Hispanics aren't
Republicans, and would be
shut out of the process. As
general counsel, he repre-
sented the state's chapter
of the National Association
for the Advancement of
Colored People. .
The change to the
Supreme Court requires
amending the state consti-
tution. It would have to be
approved by 60 percent of
voters on the November
2012 ballot before becom-
ing effective.


By JAMES L. ROSICA
Associated Press

TALIAHASSEE Bob
Graham, a former gover-
nor and U.S. senator from
Florida, said on Thursday
that a legislative plan to
overhaul Florida's courts is
a "solution seeking to find a
problem."
The retired Democrat
spoke during a confer-
ence call with reporters on
Thursday. He joined with
retired Supreme Court
justices including those
appointed by Republican
governors and other
legal figures to denounce
the plan. They've formed a
bipartisan coalition called
Floridians for Fair and
Impartial Courts.
House Speaker Dean
Cannon supports the
overhaul package, includ-
ing proposal to split the
Supreme Court into sepa-
rate divisions for crimi-
nal and civil appeals. It is
scheduled for a House floor
vote on Friday.
Graham, who served in
the U.S. Senate from 1987-
2005, suggested that the
changes were political pay-
back for the high court's
5-2 rejection of three consti-
tutional-amendment ques-
tions. .
Those questions all
backed by the Republican-
controlled Legislative -
were tossed from the 2010.
ballot because of confusing
or misleading ballot sum-
maries.
"If t'.e Legislature is
upset, then the approach
they ought to take is to
put another constitutional
amendment on the ballot
and let the people decide
if they made a mistake in
their earlier action,". said
Graham, who also served
as governor in the 1980s.
The amendments con-
cerned letting voters voice
opposition~to tie U.S. health

This Sunday picture shows a rig and supply vessel in the Gulf of Mexico, off the coast of
Louisiana. With everything Big Oil and the govemmenit have learned in the year since the Gulf of
Mexico disaster, could it happen again? Absolutely, according to an Associated Press examina-
tion of the industry and interviews with experts on the perils of deep-sea drilling.


but I would say in the nex~t
five years we should have
at least one major blow-
out,"P~errow said. "Even if
everybody tries very hard,
there is going to be an acci-
dent caused by cost-cutting
and pressure on workers.
These are moneymaking
machines and they make
money by pushing things
to the limit."
After the 1Deepwater
Horizon explosion, oil pro-
ducers including BP were
criticized for errors in their
federally required oil-spill
response plans, such as
severely underestimating
the time it takes oil to reach
shore.
Several of the biggest oil
producers told the AP they
have updated their response
plans but are still waiitin~g for
them to be approved. The
Bureau of Ocean Energy
Management, Regulation
and .Enforcement said it is
operating under a2002 fed-
eral regulation that allows
two years to approve such
plans,


remains highly risky. The
effectiveness of the mulch-
touted containment sys-
tem is being questioned
because it hasn't been
tested on the sea floor. A
design flaw in the blow-
out preventers widely
used across the industry
has been identified but not
corrected. And regulators
are allowing companies
to obtain drilling permits
before approving their
updated oil-spill response
plans.
After a monthslong mor-
atorium, the Obama admin-
istration resumed issuing
drilling permits earlier this
year amid great pressure
from the industry and law-
makers seeking to protect
communities and workers
whose livelihoods depend
on drilling.
A petroleum industry
group is creating a cen-
ter for offshore safety in
Houston to address man-
agement practices and
improve industry commu-
nication. And the agency


that oversees offshore
drilling now' bars irispeo-
tors from regulating a
company that employs a
family member or friend.
Also, inspectors who join
the agency from the oil
industry cannot perform
inspections of their former
employers for two years.
BP says it is poised to
become a much safer com-
pany. It ousted several key
figures during the disas-
ter -.-including CEO Tony
Hayward -- and created a
powerful unit to police com-
pany safety. BP spokesman
Daren Beaudo said that
because of advances made
during the crisis, "the capa-
bility exists to respond to a
deep-water well blowout."
Similarly,-Chevron spokes-
man Russell A. Johnson
said his company is "con-
fident of our ability to pre-
vent an incident similar" to
the Gulf oil spill. -
SWhether any of that ti-ans-
lates into better protection
remains to be seen,
"I'm not an oddsmaker,

By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter. com

Columbia High's
only senior was hon-
ored Thursday as Jordan
Williams was honored for
her four-years as a varsity
player.
Williams would come
through foi the Lady Tigers
with a hit and RBI, but
Columbia came up short,
4-3, against P.K. Yonge.
"Shehadahitforustonight
and she's going to be a hard
one to replace," Columbia
coach Jimmy W~illiams said.


"Unfortunately we just ran
ourselves out of somein-
nings tonight. We just didn't
have good base running."
Columbia fell behind 2-0
in the first inning before
Michaela Burton's single
scored Holly Boris to cut
the -lead to 2-1. It would
stay that way until the sixth
when the Blue Wave added
two more scores.
Columbia entered the
bottom of the sixth trailing
4-1 and nearly got all the
runs back.
Hollianne Dohrn's hit
up the middle scored Kayli
Kvistad to make it 4-2 and
Dohrn came in off a sacri-
fice fly by Williams to cut
the lead to one.
Columbia was called out


for leaving early later in the
inning, however, and would
fall 4-3.
Columbia revenged an
early-season loss against
Keystone Heights on the
road Tuesday, 3-1, however,
to salvage the week. Jessica
Keene picked up win No.
.20 on the season in a com-
plete-gamme performance.
Burton scored in the fist
after reaching on a double
when Dohrn knocked in
her fist batter of the game.
Keene's base hit brought in
Stephanie Pilkiington, who
reached on a walk for a 2-0
. lead.
The Lady Tigers' final
run came off a Dohrn RBI
after Kvistad reached on a
triple in the second inning.

"I had a great time today,"
Harvick said.
It is the fist year that
Harvick's Richard Childress
Racing team has carried the
brand of Ainheuser-Busch's
signature brew. And so far,
if~s been a winning asso-
ciation that Harvick hopes
to continue at Talladega
Superspeedway in Sunday's
Aaron's 499.
Harvick's won at
California and Martinsville
and, with NASCAR's new
points system, has just
about locked up a spot in
the series end-of-season
championship chase. This
season, NASCAR will give
two wildcard spots to rac-


ers with the most wins who
aren't already in the top 10
qualifiers.
Harvick told the 100-or-
so invited guests that the
early success lets him try
things at tracks that may
help during the 10 chase
races. Piling up the points
now doesn't always help,
he said.
"~We proved that last year
when w'e had a 300-point
lead and didn't win the
chase," he said.
Harvick is prepared for
the same old Talladega-type
racing, despite the two-car
pods seen at the season's
first restrictor-plate race in
Daytona two months back.
"You have to play the
game," Harvick said.

Harvick jumped out

Talladega is good place
tO get things moving in the
right direction.
Richard Childress Racing
Swept the two events at the
Alabama track last season,
with Kevin Harvick win-
11111 ill the spring, then
Clint BOwyer nipping
Harvick in the fall. And the
RCR cars have established
themselves as consistent
COntenders at restrictor-
plate races, a trend they
continued at Daytona.
Burton won an exhibition
TrCe at Speedweeks leading
into the Daytona 500, and
BOwyer and Harvick were
ill COntention in every race
leading into the season-
opener. Harvick and Burton
both suffered early engine
failureS RneXtremely race
miSfire for RCR while
BOwyer and Menard stayed
ill COntention for the win
down to the final laps.
BurtOn expects to be in
the mix Sunday if he's
HOt in an accident.
"I feel like we have
really fast. restrictor-plate
cars. We have had plenty
of speed," Burton said. .
"URIOrtunately, I think
we have, maybe in almost
eVery Testrictor-plate race


last year, we ended up in
a wreck. But. going mnto
Talladega, what we are
thinking about is getting
to the end of the race. We
have had the speed, we
have led the laps.
"We hdve done the things
we needed to do, but we just
hadn'tfinished races. I think
it~s about putting ourselves
in the right position and get-
ting to the end of the race
and seeing if we can make it
happen on the last lap.
It could be the turn he
needs.
Harvick has rebounded
since the Daytona 500 with
two wins, and a climb from
36th to ninth in the stanid-
ings. Burton, meanwhile,
hasn't been able to catch
a break.
one mishap after anoth-
er has Burton searching
for his first top-10 finish of
the year seven races into
the season. His 11th last
weekend at Texas was his
best finish to date, but he
refuses to blamnebad luck
for his misfortunes.
"What we have to guard
against is looking: and say-
ing, 'Wrell, we have had bad
luck,' he said. "That, to
me, is an excuse. That, to


me, is knocking it off and
saying, 'It's some other
power making us either be
successful or not success-
ful,' and' I just don't buy
into that.
"I think it rests on our
shoulders. You can certain-
ly have had luck and you
can certainly have things
go a way, that you didn't
want to, but at the same
time, those things equalize
themselves out. Its been
my experience, whatever
bad luck you have, you also
have that much good luck.
So at the end of the day, its
on our shoulders to go fix
it, and I think we can."
Childress, however,
thinks good finishes have
to be headed Burton's way.
As he celebrated Harvick's
win earlier this month at
Martinsville, a race where
Burton's Chevrolet suf-
fered damage when he was
stacked in traffic, leading
to a 24th-place finish.
"I told Jeff after the race
was over, it will turn,"
Childress said. "He's hav-
ing some tough breaks
right now, but it can turn
the other way just as quick
and as good as what yoxi're
going through right now."

able and won't be changing
anytime soon. Of the play-
ers in this 16-team playoff
field, James ranks No. 1 in
postseason scoring average
at 29.3 points per game,
Wade is No. 2 at 26.3 per
game.
Bosh may be the No. 3
option, but he's no fallback.
The Heat were 21-7 when
he had at least 10 points
and 10 rebounds this sea-
son.
"I think some people
might look past them, but
it's hard to say thatwhen you
have those three players,"
Minnesota Timberwolves
forward Kevin Love said.
"On that team, that's really
all they talk about. They
have a lot of good players
on their. team. They're well
coached. I think they'll turn
it up come playoff time."
Bosh expects that to hap-
pen.
The last time he won a
championship was high
school. With the Raptors,
he never even got to know
what leading a series felt
like. Toronto lost Game
1 to New Jersey in 2007,
then dropped the opening
game of the 2008 playoffs
in Orlando.
He's waited a long time
to change his playoff for-
tunes.
"W~e know the challenge
in front of us," Bosh said.
"W~e have the type of team
that does whatever it takes
to win. If we need to be
more physical, we're going
to rebound more, we're going
to- do that. More paint
points, we're going to do
that."


By TIM REYNOL)s
Associated Press

MIAMI Chris Bosh
stammered slightly when
trying to explain how NBA
playoff games are rougher
and tougher than ~ones in
the regular~season.
He had to really think
about his answer.
"Yeah, if~s been a while
for me," Bosh said.
Quite an understate-
ment.
It takes four, victories to
win a postseason series.
Bosh would say those four
wins are far fr-om easy to
get considering he's
been part of three playoff-
game triumphs in his entire
career, the last of those
coming in- 2008. That's one
of the many reasorts why
Bosh came to the' Miami
Heat, who expect a bit more
than just getting out of the
'first round.
Miami's postseason
starts Saturday, when the
Philadelphia 76ers visit
for Game 1 of the Eastern
Conference quarterfinals.
To say Bosh has been wait-
ing somewhat impatiently
for the playoff challenge to
arrive, well, that also would
be quite an understate-
ment.
"The past week felt like
a month," Bosh said as
the regular season wound
down. "It's gone by very
slow." -
.He's hardly the only Heat
player who feels that way.
On July 9, the night Bosh,
LeBron James and Dwyane
Wade all posed for the first
time in Heat uniforms at
a rock-concert-esque wel-

before the All-Star break
that he felt "unappreciat-
ed" by some around the
league.
"But my teammates here
appreciate me," Bosh said.
That was proven over
the season's final month.
When the Heat were' m
a five-game swoon after
the All-Star break, Bosh
publicly came ~out and
. asked for the ball more.
He got it, and it's no coinci-
dence his field-~goal shoot-
ing percentage rose 6 per-
cent over the season's final


five weeks. -
Now he's in the play-
offs for just the third time
in his eight seasons, with
Saturday set to be just the
12th postseason game of
his career. If the Heat are
going to capture that title,
Bosh almost certainly will
need to play a significant
role.
"We need Chris to step
up, just like we need me to
step up and LeBroli to step
up," Wade said. "That's why
we all came together, to do
this thing together."


Bosh finished the season
averaging 18.7 points and
8.3 rebounds per game.
IThe Heat were the only
team in the league with
three players ranked among
the NBA's top 25 scorers
this season, with James
second (26.7) and Wade
fourth (25.5). Bosh was
24th. .
. That makes him often
seen like Miami's forgot-
ten man. .
James and Wade get the
vast majority of thk atten-
tion, which is understand-


come party in Miami, they
became the league's vil-
lains, the team everybody
else loved to hate.
Bosh took that harder
than most at times.
He expressed his frustra-
tion with it several times
over the course of the sea-
son, was offended when
what he thought was a
harniless cominent about
the type of cable television

the courthouse. Pash said:
"The only way we're going
to~ get this whole set of
issues resolved is by nego-
tiating."
Eller said he was hopeful
of progress.
."I'm a fan, too. We would
like to ease their minds,"
Eller said.
The mediation is the fist
positive step in the dispute
in more than a month, but
the league and players
still must agree on how to
divide more than $9 billion
in annual revenue.
The owners initial-
ly wanted to double the
money they get off the top
for expenses ~from about $1
billion to about $2 billion,
but that number dropped
during the last round of
mediation. The players
have insisted on full finan-
cial disclosure from all
32 teams, and so far the
league has not opened the
books to their liking.
Other major issues
included benefits for
retired players and the
NFI's desire to stretch the
regular season from 16 to
18 games. The NFL also
wants to cut almost 60 per-
cent of guaranteed pay for
first-round draft picks, lock
them in for five years and
divert the savings to veter-
ans' salaries and benefits.
More than $525 million
went to first-rounderg in
guaranteed payments in
2010. The league wants
to decrease that figure by
$300 million, according to
documents obtained by
The Associated Press.

By DAVE CAMPBELL


MINNEAPOLIS. The
NFL and its locked-out
players are talking again,
Commissioner Roger
Goodell, Carolina Panthers
owner Jerry Richardson
and New England Patriots
owner Robert Kraft arrived
at the federal courthouse in
Minneapolis on Thursday
for a court-ordered media-
tion session in front of a
judge.
NFLPA executive diree-
tor DeMaurice Smith was
joined by attorneys, line-
backers Ben Leber and
Mike Vrabel, as well as
Hall of Fame defensive end
Carl Eller. Smith greeted
reporters as he approached
the building, but he didn't
respond to questions.
Asked about his hope for
the session as he hustled
to the entrance, Vrabel
smiled and joked that he
just hoped he wasn't late.
It was the first meeting
between the two sides since
March 11, when the old col-
lective bargaining agree-
ment expired, the union
was dissolved to clear the
way for the court fight and
the lockout began-- the
NFL's first work stoppage
since the monthlong strike
in 1987.
With the lockout at 33
days and counting and the
2011 season in peril, U.S.
Magistrate Judge Arthur
Boylan is overseeing the
second round of media-
tion between the two sides.
Sixteen days of mediated
sessions in Washington
failed to secure a new labor
pact.
League officials, led
by executive vice presi-
dent Jeff Pash, met with
Boylan for about five hours
Wednesday. Lawyers for the
players met with Boylan for


obstruction of justice, but
even that charge may not
stand on further judicial
review. .
Technically, the` govern-
ment could retry him on
the perjury charges the
jury deadlocked on. But it's
doubtful prosecutors would
waste the time and money
to try him again, especially
after the jury foreman said
they should have done their
homework better if they
wanted to get convictions
on those charges.
Oh, and the chances of
him ever going to prison?
Well, don't start measur-
ing him for that extra-large
jumpsuit just yet. .
More than seven years in
the making, the case against
Bonds sputtered to an
inconclusive end that likely
satisfied no one. Bonds, of
course, would have pre-
ferred to have been acquit-
ted on all charges, while
prosecutors would have
been turning cartwheels
down the courthouse hall-
ways had they been able
to get the jury to convict
him on the accusations of
lying under oath that were
directly related to steroid
use.

Associated Press

Baseball never went after
Barry Bonds, despite a
failed asteroid test and cir-
cumstantial evidence that
fans in the outfield bleach-
ers could see every time he
went to the plate.
The federal government
did, and almost struck out
trying.
Bonds strolled out of the
federal courthouse in San
Francisco on Wednesday
and flashed a victory sign
to a few fans, which at first
glance might seem strange
behavior for a man just con-
victed of a felony.
Yet while he didn't walk
free on all four charges
against him, the slugger
and his multimillion-dollar
dream team of attorneys
had reason to smile.
Bonds survived the
BALCO investigation with-
out being convicted of any-
thing directly related to
steroids, quite a feat con-
sidering the government
did everything but show
pictures of his allegedly
shrinking private parts to
convince jurors Bonds was
juiced. He was convicted of

the dangers of purchasing
a pet rabbit for children at

MOSt pet stores didn't of-
fer them, and I was told it
WaS because of the large
number of rabbits found
dead or abandoned on the
streets because the self-
ish, inhumane people who
bought them for the holiday
disposed of them the next
day. These dear little ani-
mals deserve owners who
will love and'respect them.
Please don't waste their
lives. CAITLIN IN L.A.
DEAR CAITIN: I'm
happy to oblige. .The let-
ter you requested carries
an important message that
can't be repeated often
enough:
DEAR ABBY: Easter is
coming. Many families still
purchase live rabbits as pets
for their children. Parents
often think rabbits are good
'starter" pets and don't un-
derstand what they are get-
ting: into. As a result, many


e M


8. Do the adults want the
rabbit, too? A rabbit should
be a family pet.
SIf people have questions
about rabbits and their care,
please ask them to con-
tact my organization. We
are happy to answer qlues-
tions. Our website is www.
rabbitnetwork.org, and our
phone number is (781) 431-
1211.
Finally, if a rabbit is
right for you and your faml-
ily, please adopt one from
a shelter or rescue group.
You'll enrich your family
with a new member and also
teach your kids the value of
saving a life~. Thank you.

DEAR SUZANNE:
The topic of burimies, baby
chicks and ducklings as
Easter gifts is one that re-
curs every year. I hear from
people who work in animal
shelters deploring th~e fact
that these helpless little
creatures are later dumped
when they cease to be nov-
elties. I hope readers will
take to heart what you have
written, particularly the
suggestion that if a rabbit is
going to be adopted, a shel-
ter or rescue group can be
an excellent resource.

of these poor creatures end
up in animal shelters, and
children learn that pets.are
disposable.
Before getting rabbits,
people should consider:
1. Are they willing to
make a seven-to-10-year
commitment? That is the
average lifespan of a rabbit.
2. What will happen
if tl eir child gets bored
with the bunny after six
months?
3. Is there a place in their
house for a rabbit cage?
4. Are they willing to pay
to get it spayed/neutered
and provide vet care?
5. Do they know that
most rabbits hate to be
held? Will their child accept
that?
6. Are they willing to
ensure that children under
7 won't pick up the rabbit
without supervision? Rab-
bits are fragile; their legs or
, spine will break if acciden-
tally dropped,
7. Can they provide three
hours of exercise every day
in an escape-proof area out-
side its cage?

TI-E LA~ST- WORD
Eugenia Last

LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): Travel, communica-
tions and getting to the
bottom of any situation
you face could. result in a
leadership position. ~Expect
competition to be fierce,
but don't underestimate the
power you have in the way
you express your ideas and
plans. JrAA
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept
22): Put effort into your
surroundings, your finan-
cial situation and your fam-
ily. You will have to spend
a little but you don't have
to go overboard. Love is in
the stars. Plan a fun-filled
evening. AAA~
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct
22): Someone may be
keeping secrets from you of
an emotional nature. Trying
not to upset anyone will be
a waste of time and will lead
to your anxiety and stress.
Ask specific questions so
you are kept in the loop and
are able to make decisions
beneficial to you. AAA~
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): Get involved in
something that interests
you; you will meet someone
you can relate to personally
and professionally. Com-
mon ground will put you at
ease so you can consider
the changes that will make


your life easier and your fu-
ture brighter. AAAA
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Take care
of promises and responsi-
bilities you have made to
the people you care about
most. Then you can move
on to more entertaining
and adventurous activities.
Changes at home will give
you a new lease on life. Srf
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): Rely on
past experience and old
acquaintances to help you
see things properly. Don't
let anyone add to your bur-
dens or make you feel guiltyr
about what you did or didn't
do. You'llbe prone to injury
and arguments. Proceed
with caution. AAAAAt~
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Memories are a
wonderful thilig and, right
now, will help you revive
some of your old goals. At-
tending a reunion or look-
ing up an old friend will be
good for your ego. A skill or
talent you have can turn a
profit if promoted properly.

PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Personal and
professional partnerships
may be'in question. Make
sure you have all the facts
required to make a judg-
ment call. Anger isn't the
answer and will lead to a
blowout that is impossible
to fix. AAA


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Diligence
and hard work will prove
you have leadership abil-
ity. Common sense, morals
and ethics will play a role in
.how you conduct business
and deal wi~th' friends and
colleagues. Uncertainties
should be dealt with diplo-
inatically. SAA
TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): Take care of
business and don't leave
anything undone. A good
effort will warrant added
respect,, with the possibility,
of more responsibility and
advancement. Get what you
want or whats being of-
fered in writing. -Sr-k ,
GEMINI (May 21-
June 20): Don't let your
emotions take over when
dealing with someone or
something you cannot
change. Your best recourse
is to do your own thing. Vol-
unteering to help a cause or
a friend will take your mind
.off your- troubles, allowing
you time to put things in
perspective. AA
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): Put all your time
and effort into home and
family. You will have added
responsibilities that must
be taken care of if you want
to be able to take part in
any form of entertainment.
Don't let someone's pushy
attitude stop you from pr-
ticipating. AAAA
