More Than Just A Mascot

AMSONn ~ ,MiM I nEW L -uLrI.L.m Iw Ciy RuporIUr
Dr. Kevin Hawthorne, a veterinarian at the Lake City Animal Hospital, displays a glass bottle containing anticoagulant as he explains the
dog blood donor process. Deke, a 2-year-old yellow lab, is one of two of Hawthorne's pets that he uses as canine donors whenever there
is need. Hawthorne said that transfusions are 90 to 95 percent due to parasites like fleas or hook worms.

That canine you see in your vet's

office may just save your dog's life

ucked in a corner bf Lake
City Animal Hospital, two,
blood donors lie curled up,
sleeping on the floor. Tucker,
4, and Deke, 2, are Labrador
Retrievers who, whether they know it or
not, have saved the lives of many strug-
gling canines.
Cared for by Lake City Animal Hospital
owners and resident veterinarians, Dr.,
Tracy and Kevin Hawthorne, the dogs
spend the daytime in the clinic and at
night, like their owners, they go home.
'They do very well. They know that
when they give blood, they get ,a can of
dog food," said Kevin. "When they give
a transfusion they are looking for their
treat, cause they know what they've
According Dr. Kevin Hawthorne, the
biggest requirement for a blood donor
dog is a calm temperament The dogs
must be large, and patient enough to
endure being periodically stuck with a
large needle in the jugular vein while a
500 millileter bottle is filled with blood.
' Another option for animal transfusion
is to acquire the product from a blood
bank. Blood banks provide blood that
has been more thoroughly screened and

Dr. Tracy Hawthorne gets'a friendly lick from
Tucker, a 4-year-old lab who also serves as
a blood donor. She said the need for blood
arises several times a'year, and since they
do not store canine blood, their pets come
to work with them in case a transfusion is

typed than is typically done with in-house
blood donor dogs. This service allows
pet owners to give their pet a higher
quality substance.
"We have advanced. The pet has
become a more valued family member,"
said Dr. Amy Stone, Chief of the Primary
Care and Dentistry division of the
University of Florida Veterinary Hospital.

Stone helps care for the donor dogs at .
UF's animal blood bank.
While blood transfusions in animals
have been occurring since the early days
of veterinary medicine, blood banks are a
fairly new service. Specific guidelines for
transfusions in blood banks have not yet
been accepted, but Stone believes that a
governing body to regulate the substance
will emerge in the next five to ten years..
Though animal blood banks do exist,
most veterinarians use their own pets
for transfusions. The donors provide a
cheap, quick way to access blood for
animals -which are crucial' factors to
consider when an animal comes into the
clinic that is in need.
Recently, three white bulldog puppies
came into Lake City Animal Hospital suf-
fering from parasitism. The puppies were
unable to stand when they first arrived,
but after a blood transfusion from one
of the resident blood donor dogs, the
puppies regained their vigor. Within ten
minutes, they were barking at each other
and playing tug of war.
"These dogs come in here pale, almost
white-gummed and laterally recumbent
-which means they are lying down and
can't get up," said Kevin. "It makes a
huge difference."

Academy Awards big ratings winner

NEW YORK- Billed as
Hollywood's biggest night, the.
Academy Awards telecast was also
TV's biggest show last week, help-
ing crown ABC as overall prime-time
Sunday's Oscarcast was easily top-
ranked,-with an audience of nearly
40 million viewers.
Adding to the luster was the
90-minute preview, which ABC
shrewdly logged as three distinct
half-hours. The final segment of
"Oscar's Red Carpet" (airing just
before the Oscarcast began) drew
24 million viewers,
ranking second for
the week, while the
middle half-hour,
seen by nearly 17 mil-
lion viewers, ranked
fourth. The first
half-hour claimed a Crystal
healthy 14th place
with nearly 13 million viewers, the
Nielsen Co. said Tuesday.
For the week in prime time, ABC
averaged 10.68 million viewers (6.5
household rating, 11 share), edg-
ing out CBS, with 10.06 million (6.3
rating, 10 share). Far behind were
Fox with 6.84 million (4.1 rating, 6
share), NBC with 5.42 million (3.4
rating, 5 share), CW with 1.14 mil-
lion (0.8 rating, 1 share) and ION
Television with 1.11 million (0.7 rat-

New law could free up TV
airwaves for mobile use
, NEW YORK A new.law could
result in fewer TV stations on the air,
in exchange for faster wireless data
services for smartphones and tablet
Before you rush out to download

"Bad Teacher" from iTunes, though,
keep in mind that several things need
to happen over the next few years
before people start seeing faster wire-
less speeds.
The law, part of a payroll tax pack-
age signed by President Barack
Obama last week, gives the Federal
Communications Commission author-
ity to explore such an exchange. The
FCC will have to write the rules for it
in the coming months.
The idea is to squeeze over-the-air
television, which has few viewers,
into a smaller slice of the airwaves.
Anything freed would be available for
bidding by companies, including wire-
less carriers such as AT&T Inc. and
Verizon Wireless.
Broadcasters will need to decide
whether they want to give up their
frequencies. Those that do could con-
tinue to operate as cable-only chan-
nels if they don't want to go out of
busiriess. Bidding for freed airwaves
likely won't begin until late 2013 or
early 2014, partly to give bidders time
to raise money to pay for any spec-
trum they win.

Sony says it has sold 1.2
million of PlayStation Vitas
NEW YORK Sony says it has
sold 1.2 million PlayStation Vitas
worldwide, exceeding the company's
expectations amid stiff competition
from mobile devices and Nintendo.
The handheld game system
launched last week in North
America, Latin America, Europe
and elsewhere. It went on sale in
December in Japan and other parts
of Asia.
Sony Corp. did not break out
figures by region, so it's not known
how many of the sales came from
last week's launch. The sales figures
were through Sunday.

Jackson Health cuts
10 percent of workers
MIAMI Miami-based
Jackson Health System,
which is one of South
Florida's largest healthcare
providers, is cutting about
10 percent of its work
Chief Executive Carlos
Migoya said at a news con-
ference Tuesday that they
would be cutting 1,115
jobs. The Miami Herald
reports that the cuts are
expected to create a net
savings of $69 million. The
struggling public hospitals
have lost $420 million the
past three years.
Migoya says the cuts
will mean 920 people will
be laid off, while another
195 vacant positions will be
eliminated. The system is
adding 350 part-time posi-
tions, which those being
laid off will be allowed to
apply for.

Board approves school

unnecessary failures while
leading to more public

Robinson agreed to drop

ic "F" to a school if less than
a fourth of its students read
at grade level regardless of
how well they do on other

Behind Act, but the board

Volunteers hold up signs behind Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney as he takes
questions from reporters while visiting a campaign call center in Livonia, Mich. on Tuesday.

Romney, Santorum collide

Associated Press
presidential rivals Mitt Romney and
Rick Santorum collided Tuesday in
a rancorous Michigan primary that
tested the ctout of the GOP estab-
lishment against conservative and tea
party rebels as well as the candidates
Arizona Republicans voted in the
second primary of the night, and
Romney was favored by far in that race
that drew scant attention.
As Romney's home state, Michigan
held outsized importance in the cam-
paign to pick a Republican presidential
candidate, a place -where he won the
primary in 2008 and could ill afford to
lose this year.
Not even the opening of polls around
the state brought an end to the squab-
bling. Romney accused Santorum of
trying to hijack a victory by courting
Democratic votes through automated
telephone calls and suggested his rival
was appealing to Michigan conserva-
tives by making the kind of "incendi-

ary" statements he would not
"I'm not willing to light my hair on
fire to try and get support," Romney
said. "I am what I am."
Santorum brushed aside the allega-
tions of hijacking, saying Romney had
appealed for, support from indepen-
dents in earlier states.
"We're going to get voters that we
'need to be able to win this election.
And we're going to do that here in
Michigan today," Santorum said, refer-
ring to blue collarvoters with a history
of swinging between the parties.
If nothing else, the unexpected clash
on Romney's home field dramatized
that two months into the campaign
season after nearly a dozen prima-
ries and caucuses the GOP race to
pick an opponent for President Barack
Obama was as unsettled as the day it
Two other candidates in the race,
Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul, made lit-
tle effort in either Michigan or Arizona,
pointing instead to next week's 10-state
collection of Super Tuesday primaries
and caucuses.
Michigan loomed as a key test for
Romney as he struggled to reclaim his

early standing as front-runner in the
race. The first of the industrial battle-
ground states to vote in the nominating
campaign, it is also the place where
the former Massachusetts governor
was born and where he won a primary
when he first ran for the party nomina-
tion four years ago.
ButSantorum, aformerPennsylvania
senator,.rolled into the state on the
strength of surprising victories on
Feb. 7 in caucuses in Minnesota and
Colorado plus a non-binding prima-
ry in Missouri. He quickly sought to
stitch together the same coalition of
conservatives and tea party activists
that carried him to a narrow victory
in the Iowa caucuses that opened the
campaign nearly two months ago.
The Michigan primary was open to
Republicans or any voter who declared
they were Republican for the purpose
of voting, and there was precedent for
an influx of outsiders influencing the

Scott signs death warrant

for serial killer Gore

Associated Press
Rick Scott on Tuesday
ordered the execution of a
central Florida serial killer
who raped and dismembered
five women before raping
and murdering a teenager
he picked up hitchhiking in
Indian River County almost
30 years ago.
David Alan Gore, 58, is
scheduled to be .executed
April 12 for the murder of
17-year-old Lynn Elliott on
July 26, 1983. Gore's death
warrant was the fourth
signed by Scott since he
took office last year.
After Gore was arrested
for Elliott's murder, he led
authorities to the remains of

Gore and his cousin, Fred
Waterfield, picked up Elliott

along the side of a road.
Gore pulled a gun on the
girls and threatened to kill

cated he would eventually

led teachers to lock down their class-
rooms as they had practiced doing so
many times during drills.
Both King and Parmertor were stu-
dents at the Auburn Careei Center, a
vocational school, and were waiting in
the Chardon High cafeteria for a bus
for their daily 15-minute ride when they
were shot.
The'police chief would shed no light
on a motive.
"I feel sorry not only for that family but
all the families that are affected by this,"
McKenna said. Characterizing himself as
a "hometown boy," he added: "Chardon
will take care of Chardon."
A student who saw the attack up close

said it appeared that the gunman tar-
geted a group of students sitting together
and that.one of the dead was shot while
trying to duck under the cafeteria table.
Lane's family is mourning "this terrible
loss for their community," attorney Robert
Farnacci said in a statement
Lane did not go to Chardon High, instead
attending nearby Lake Academy, which' is
for students with academic or behavioral
Fifteen-year-old Danny Komertz, who
witnessed the shooting, said Lane was
known as an outcast who had apparently
been bullied. But others disputed that.
"Even though he was quiet, he still had

Farinacci,. representing Lane and his
family, told WKYC-TV that Lane "pretty
much sticks to himself but does have some
friends and has never been in trouble over
anything that we know about."
Student Nate Mueller said that he was
at the table in the cafeteria where the
victims were shot, and a bullet grazed
his ear. k
"My friends were crawling on the floor,
and one of my friends was bent over the
table, and he was shot," Mueller told
The Plain -Dealer. "It was almost like a
firecracker went off. I turned around and
saw (Lane) standing with a gun and I saw
him take a shot."
Mueller told the Cleveland newspaper
that Lane would wait at the school to take

a bus to Lake Academy. Mueller said that
King one of those killed had recently
started dating Lane's ex-girlfriend.
Lane "was silent the whole time," Mueller
said. 'That's what made it so random."
Frank Hall, an assistant high school
football coach who students say chased
the suspected gunman out of the cafeteria,
told a Cleveland TV station that he couldn't
discuss what happened, but added: "I just
want to say that I'm sorry for the fami-

DOGS: More than just a mascot

Continued From Page 1A

Most of the transfu-
sion cases that the
Hawthornes treat are
from preventable cir-
cumstances, such as
parasitism from fleas
and hookworms.
Usually, animals
are only treated with
a transfusion once in
their lives, which makes
the in-house blood
donor system possible.
However, once an ani-
mal is given a second
transfusion it becomes
more important for the
veterinarian to match
the dog with a specific
blood type, since the
dog's body has become
accustomed to the inva-
sive blood cells at that
"Blood cells on
average live about 28
days in a dog," said
Dr. Tracy Hawthorne.
"Transfusion ones never
live as long because
they are not your own
and your body knows
they are not your own
and so they will remove
them more rapidly than
normal. But if you can

just get a couple of
weeks out of it, it gives
that puppy a chance to
start making his own
red blood cells so that
he can survive."
Potential for disease
transmission from a
transfusion is possible,
but less likely than in
human cases.
"There's always a risk
of disease transmis-
sion, but most of the
diseases that dogs have,
they have symptoms.
It's not like dogs have
HIV or hepatitis that we
wouldn't know about.
You wouldn't use that
dog. That's why I use
my own dogs, because I
know they are healthy,"
said Kevin.
According to Stone,
donor dogs at blood
banks "are the most well
cared for dogs ever." The
dogs recieve consistent
preventative care and
screening for disease.
She also believes
that the dogs are given
a choice of being
involved in the donor
program when the

animals are tested for
temperament. If they
don't want to partici-
pate, she said, they will
show a sign of disinter-
est at that point.
"I feel priveleged
to be on the team
who takes care of our
group," said Stone.
Tucker and Deke are
also well cared for ani-
mals living a full life.
They provide other ser-
vices at the hospital as
well as at home. They
have been used to help
socialize new-to-the-
world puppies and on
occasion, Kevin will
take the dogs out duck

to retire



President Barack
Obama is "a snob."
And why is he a snob?
Because he wants
everybody in America to have
the opportunity to go to college.
Obama, 50, was deserted by
his father, was raised mostly by
his 'single mother and grand-
parents and attended one of
Hawaii's better private schools
on a scholarship.
Santorum, 53, grew up in
a stable, educated family. His
father was a clinical psycholo-.
gist; his mother was an admin-
istrative nurse. He attended a
-Catholic high school.
Santorum may chafe at
Obama's Ivy League pedigree,
Columbia and Harvard, but he
seemed to have no objections
to a similar pedigree when
George W. Bush, Yale and
Harvard, was president
Santorum attended Penn
State for both his undergradu-
ate and law degrees, and he has
one more diploma than Obama,
an MBA from the University of
Pittsburgh. He practiced law
briefly and then got into politics
and did quite well, until his
intemperate rhetoric caused his
constituents to cut his career
short after his second term in
the Senate by an embarrassing
18 percentage points.
Santorum entered the House
in part by attacking opponents
for living in Washington.
Santorum himself ended up
buying in 2001 a $641,000
house outside Washington in
Loudoun County, Va., which
the Census Bureau deems the
nation's richest county.
After his defeat in 2006, and
finding far more remunerative
work as a lobbyist, consultant
and commentator, he bought
a $2 million home in Great
Falls, Va., one of Washington's
priciest suburbs and part of
Fairfax County, the nation's
Maybe now would be a good
time for Santorum to quietly
retire the charge of "snob."

Hillary Clinton vs. Jeb Bush

a faint possibility

T he other day, a
good friend came
up with an interest-
ing scenario for the
ultimate result of the
chaotic race for the Republican
presidential nomination.
But first, let me say that
my friend has broad political
experience on local, state and
national stages, having worked
as an adviser on several presi-
dential campaigns. I must add
that he is a gifted raconteur
with a well-defined sense of
humor as well as the bizarre.
The other night at dinner,
after a rousing debate over
which candidate the GOP ulti-
mately would select to oppose
President Barack Obama, my
friend, with a glint in his eye,
announced he had the solution.
He said because former
Massachusetts Gov. Mitt
Romney seems incapable
of exciting a clear-cut fol-
lowing and because main-
stream Republican leaders
consider former U.S. Sen.
Rick Santorum, currently
Romney's chief opponent, to be
unelectable, the party's pow-
ers must ultimately look to a
more acceptable candidate with
broad voter appeal to enter the

Aml- ..

Dan K. Thomasson

But who, we asked?
Easy, he replied: That most
likely would be Jeb Bush, who
many are convinced should
have been the son picked to
run for the White House in
2000 instead of his brother
George W. The former Florida
governor, my friend noted, has
a strong following among inde-
pendents and some Democrats
as well as all elements of the
GOP faithful. He also has con-
siderable ties to the nation's
Hispanic voters because of his
Latin wife. Bush, he argued,
would accept the task of sav-
ing the party and the election
and then would immediately
announce that he has asked
highly regarded Indiana Gov.
Mitch Daniels, who rejected
pleas to seek the presidential
nomination, to be his running
mate. Daniel's financial exper-
tise and basic conservatism

would entice much of the
Republican base.
Faced with such a fearsome
heavyweight ticket, Obama would
suddenly decide not to seek re-
election. He would propose that
Democrats nominate Secretary
of State Hillary Rodham Clinton,
whom he defeated in 2008 for the
nomination and who has earned
high marks as the nation's chief
While this scenario produced
some hearty guffaws and hoots
from around our table, obvi-
ously only part of it was in
jest. It clearly pointed up the
dilemma facing Republicans. It
is not difficult to imagine that
the party's mainline leaders are
beginning to see their hopes of
defeating Obama slip away in
the divisive primary fight for
the nomination, which has pro-
duced no clear leader. Obama,
meanwhile, is benefiting from
an improving economy and a
lack of enthusiasm among the
general electorate for the GOP
wannabes. Although it would
be difficult to unseat Romney
or Santorum at this stage,
stranger things have occurred.

Official's goal: Boost student achievement

appointed Glenton
Gilzean Jr. to the
Pinellas County
School Board last
month to fill the seat that had
been held by Lew Williams,
who died in December.
It didn't go over well in Pinellas.
Gilzean holds a master's degree
in business entrepreneurship from
the University of South Florida
and operates a nonprofit organiza-
tion that is qualified to distribute
privateschool vouchers to low-
income families. He is a 29year-
old African-American who moved
to St. Petersburg just weeks before
the death of Williams, who was 68,
the only African-American on the
school board and a former teacher,
principal and administrator with
deep roots in the community and
the school district
Gilzean met last week with lead-
ers from St Petersburg's black
community, who suggested he
learn about the county's black
leaders in education and its issues
regarding the achievement gap
between black and white students.
He has not said whether he will
seek election to the seat this fall,
and I spoke with him before that
Q: What was the evolution of
your appointment? Did you ask for
the job, and why did you accept it
when you never lived here?
A I moved to St Petersburg in
November, before Mr. Williams
died. I submitted an application

Bill Maxwell

just like all the other candidates.
I came to Pinellas to bring the
services that my organization,
Educate Today, offers to at-risk
and underprivileged children. I
don't think the fact that I haven't
lived in Pinellas for years dimin-
ishes what I bring to the table...
I will contribute everything I
can to increasing the academic
achievement of Pinellas County
children, whether it's as a school
board member or the founder of
Educate Today.
Q: You are a passionate sup-
porter of vouchers. How do you
justify using public funds for
private-school vouchers?
A I am a supporter of student
achievement I recognize that
each child is unique and not
every child's needs are met in
traditional public-school environ-
ments. I want every child to
achieve academic success regard-
less of what educational environ-
ment is necessary to accomplish
Q: Many Republicans would
privatize public schools if they
could. Are you one of them?

A I believe that every child
should have the opportunity to
attend a quality school that meets
their individual learning needs
and that starts with finding inno-
,vative ways within the system
and outside the system to turn
low-performing schools into high-
performing schools.
School districts in this state
have already begun to do this
through public-private partner-
ships of their own initiative. I think
we're all on board with the idea
that we can't solve the problem of
low-performing schools using the
same kind of thinking that took
place as the ... problem developed.
Q: What are your long-term

better place one student at a time.
Q: Why did so many African-
Americans oppose your appoint-
A I don't think it's right to
guess at why people think other
applicants ... should have been
appointed over me. Im sure
every applicant has strong sup-
porters who believe they were a
better candidate.... I hope I am
able to prove that I'm at least
equal to the task in every way
that matters. My No. 1 priority is
student achievement and ensur-
ing that every student in Pinellas
County receives a world-class

State lawmakers avoid meltdown; get deal on budget

Associated Press
the Republican-controlled House
and Senate cleared the way for
formal budget negotiations
on Tuesday only hours after it
appeared the process was bogged
down over differences on alloca-
tions for higher education.
The short-lived standoff came
when the Senate refused a House
offer to cut $200 million in annual
spending on higher education,
a "deal killer" that might have
delayed the Legislature in meet-
ing its March 9 adjournment.
But the fencing ended quickly
with a mid-afternoon joint state-
ment from Senate President Mike

Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island,
and House Speaker Dean Cannon,
R-Winter Park.
"We were able to produce bud-
get allocations that address a more
than $1 billion shortfall, increase
Pre-K 12 education funding by
more than $1 billion and set aside
ample reserves," Cannon said.
The Senate passed a budget (SB
7050) of nearly $71 billion on Feb.
15, two weeks after a $69.2 billion
budget passed in the House.
The House budget (HB 5001) is
about $1.6 billion less because the
Senate wants budget control over
two local expressway authorities.
The Seriate budget, which totals
nearly $70.8 billion, boosts funding
for road-building while'also estab-
lishing cuts for substance abuse

programs. Both target thousands
of state workers' jobs. The House
budget would raise the cost of col-
lege and cut health care programs
while the Senate's proposal cuts
spending on hospitals, and limits
emergency room visits for poor
The differences will be worked
out by the budget conferees that
were to be named later Tuesday.
The announcement from Cannon
and Haridopolos put a quick end to
a bit of the histrionics that seem to
frequent the final days of Florida's
annual nine-week legislative ses-
A similar agreement came last
year after a bit of name-calling
between the chambers and some
harsh words from negotiators.

This week's drama came in the
form of a disagreement over a one-
time, $400 million sweep of univer-
sity reserves. The parties settled
for -$300 million, but the House
wanted a recurring $200 million
"That's a deal killer for us" Senate
budget negotiator JIT Alexander,
R-Lake Wales, said. "Its hard
enough to ask for some of the
excess cash back."
The Senate preferred to plug
any shortage with money from the
universities' reserves, or savings
"No progress has been made,
and I'm a little frustrated," Rep.
Denise Grimsley, R-Sebring, said
Tuesday, noting that things had
reached a stalemate sometime

The Senate said it would pre-
fer returning in a special session"
to resolve budget issues before,
giving way on higher education
"We made an accommodation
to them on health and human ser-
vices, we would expect the same
accommodation," Haridopolos
said. 'They (House) clearly under-
stand where we stand."
And it appeared they did as
agreement came only a couple
hours later.
Legislators now have seven
days left to bridge their differ-
ences and finish on time. State law
requires the final version of the
budget to be on lawmakers' desks
72 hours before a final vote.

Clothing lies in heaps in February at the site of a neighborhood destroyed by the 2011 earth-
quake and tsunami, in Rikuzentakata, Japan. Scientists believe ocean waves carried away
3-4 million tons of the 20 million tons of debris created by tsunamis nearly a year ago. One-
to-two million tons of it are still in the water. One to five percent of that may reach coastlines
in Hawaii, Alaska, Oregon and Washington states.

large buoys suspected to be

The buoys would have had
to travel faster than currents
to get to Alaska at that time
if they were set loose by the
March 11 tsunamis.
Similar buoys have washed
ashore in Alaska and the U.S.
West Coast before the tsu-
nami, she said.
Nicholas Mallos, a conser-
vation biologist and marine
debris specialist for the
Ocean Conservancy, said
many of the objects, in the
debris were expected to be
from Japan's fishing industry.
That could pose a risk for
wildlife, such as endangered
Hawaiian monk seals, if fish-
ing gear washes up on coral
reefs or beaches.
"The major question is
how much of that material
has sank since last year, and
how much of that remains
afloat or still in the water
column," Mallos said.
Maximenko said the dis-
persion of the debris makes
it more difficult'to track but
no less hazardous.

Seven accused of defrauding

Medicare, Medicaid of $375M

Associated Press
DALLAS A Texas doc-
tor has been charged with
running a massive health
fraud care scheme with
thousands of fraudulent
patients and intermediaries
allegedly offering cash, food
stamps or free groceries, to
bilk Medicare and Medicaid
of nearly $375 million.
A federal indictment

were not properly billed, not

authorities said.
U.S. Attorney Sarah

names and billed Medicare

Matt Kenseth (17) celebrates in Victory Lane after winning the NASCAR Daytona 500 auto
race in Daytona Beach on Monday.

Kenseth wins Daytona

500 after fire and rain

Associated Press.,

There was rain, fire, soap
suds and fog in the most
bizarre Daytona 500 in his-
tory. -
When it was all over,
Matt Kenseth was the only
sure thing.
It wasn't even close.
Kenseth capped a crazy
36 hours for NASCAR by
winning the first postponed
Daytona 500 in 55 editions
of the marquee event. He
held off Dale Earnhardt Jr.
and Roush Fenway Racing
teammate Greg Biffle over
a two-lap overtime finish in
a race that was scheduled to
begin Sunday afternoon but
ended in the early morning
hours Tuesday.
"We had a really fast car
and have fast cars in the
past, and I figured out a
way to mess it up," Kenseth
said. "I am glad it all worked
Rain at Daytona

forced NASCAR to push the
race to Monday afternoon,
then Monday night for the
first-ever 500 in primetime
television. Then a freak

race for two hours as safety
workers used Tide laundry
detergent to clean up the
In the end, the event will
be remembered not for the
actual racing, but all the
fluke things that plagued it
from start to finish.
"The thing that comes
into my mind is NASCAR
just can't catch a break,"
Earnhardt said. "We're try-
ing to deliver, and we just
have some unfortunate
things happen such as the
rain delay, potholes in the
track a couple' of years ago.
We're a good sport, and
we're trying to give a good
When racing resumed
after a 2-hour stoppage for
a freaky fuel fire, it was
obvious it was Kenseth's
to lose.
Biffle was the only driver
who could mount a chal-
lenge as the Fords were
the class of the field. Carl
Edwards, another Roush
driver, started from the pole

and finished eighth:
'The Roush cars are real-
ly strong; they showed that
all week," Earnhardt said.
Kenseth and Biffle took
over the lead following the
stoppage with 40 laps to go,
caused by the fire that began
when something broke
on Juan Pablo Montoya's
car. He was driving alone
under caution, spun hard
into a safety truck, and the
collision caused an instant
Jet fuel the safety
truck held 200 gallons of
kerosene poured down
the surface of Turn 3 at
Daytona International
Speedway after the acci-
dent, creating a fiery lasting
image of NASCAR's biggest
race of the year.
Journeyman driver Dave
Blaney was leading at that
time because he had not
pitted, and all the drivers
surrounded him as they lin-
gered outside their parked
cars during the clean-up. It
looked a little bit like a party
- and Brad Keselowski
nearly tripled his number
of Twitter followers by live
tweeting during the break
- as everyone discussed
just what had happened to
derail the race.
It was par for the course
for this Daytona 500
Montoya, who said his
helmet was singed in the
fire and his foot ached, said
he felt a vibration in his car
before the accident.
"'I've hit a lot of things
- but a jet dryer?" he said.
"It just felt really strange,
and as I was talking on the
radio, the car just turned

"About the time you think
you've seen about every-
thing, you see something
like this," NASCAR presi-
dent Mike Helton said.
Blaney's lead was short-
lived, however, as he had to
pit for gas, giving Kenseth
the lead.
The racing was aggres-
sive at the drop of the green
flag, and the first accident

occurred on just the sec-
ond lap, when Elliott Sadler
ran into the back of Jimmie
Johnson as they drafted
around the track.
The contact sent Johnson
into the wall, and as the five-
time NASCAR champion
slid back down across the
track, he was hit hard in the
door by David Ragan. The
accident collected six cars
total, including defending
Daytona 500 winner Trevor
Bayne and Danica Patrick.
"I'm just really, really
bummed to start the sea-
son this' way," Johnson
said. 'To work as hard as
everyone did at Hendrick
Motorsports to get this
Lowe's Chevrolet and to
have it barely complete two-
and-a-half miles of green
flag racing is pretty sad.
We'll just go on and go to
Phoenix and set our marks
on winning that race."
He may go to Phoenix
without anypoints: NASCAR
is expected to penalize
crew chief Chad Knaus this
week for failing the first
inspection of SpeedWeeks.
Knaus could be facing both
a suspension and a loss of

for Patrick's Stewart-Haas
Racing crew, to get her
back on the track, and she
returned 62 laps behind the

-time NASCAR champion
Terry Labonte had been run-
ning second and presumably
in position to make a move
for the cash, but he was spun
by Marcos Ambrose.
"Awe, man! Who would
turn the Ice Man around?"
Earnhardt shouted on his
team radio.
After a brief caution, the
leaders had a 10-lap sprint
to the halfway point, and
Martin Truex Jr. used a big
push from Denny Hamlin to
slide by Greg Biffle on the
deciding lap. Although he
was told over his team radio
to "go get the other half,"
history didn't bode well for
Truex: the last leader at
the halfway point to win
the Daytona 500 was Davey
Allison in 1992.

Disaster-filled Daytona

Associated Press

The Daytona 500 wasn't
just delayed. It was a flat-
out disaster.
Butif the folks atNASCAR
are as smart as they think,
they'll chalk up the fiery
explosion that made it an
unbearably long night to
bad luck, then forget about
the storm clouds that post-
poned the start by a day
- and look hard for a silver
lining. Because that's what

Monday night's race could
turn out to be.
Sure, five-time circuit
champion Jimmie Johnson
was out after two laps, side-
lined in the same wreck that
reduced glamour girl Danica
Patrick and defending champ
Trevor Bayne to also-rans for
the rest of the race. Even
the last lap was anticlimactic.
Matt Kenseth cruised com-
fortably to the win, in large
part because his teammate
Greg Biffle couldn't do much
with a late push from Dale

Earnhardt Jr. By the time it
ended, there were probably
more fans left in the stands
than still looking in on TV
across the land.
For all that, though,
"Monday Night Racing" is
an experiment that might
be worth trying again.
NASCARis still America's
No. 2 sport according to
Forbes magazine, 'but it's
struggling just to hold its
place and it's always going
to be stuck between a rock
and the NFL.

Student is shocked to spy

professor's feet of clay

19-year-old student taking
courses at a community
college. One of my classes
is taught by a great pro-
fessor who also works at
a state college teaching
other teachers.
After an evening class
with him one night, I
returned to the classroom
because I forgot some-
thing and ended up walk-
ing with him back to the
parking lot While putting
stuff into my car I saw him
get into another student's
car. I waited a while with-
out them realizing I was
there and ended up see-
ing my professor and this
student smoking weed and
fooling around.
I feel angry and
betrayed knowing he
would put his career in
danger. They are both con-
senting adults, but I don't
know whether I should
report it or not. What do
you think? BETRAYED
Unless you have
your professor was smoking
something other than tobac-
co, I think you should keep
your mouth shut As you
said, he was with another
consenting adult Are you
sure your feelings of anger
and betrayal aren't jealousy?
Because you asked what I
think, Ill tell you: Mind your
own business.

Abigail Van Buren
ago my husband and I met
a nice couple on a cruise.
We had so much fun with
them we invited them to
our home for a visit
While they were here
I showed them the photo
album I had made with our
cruise pictures. They were
in most of them. It has been
three months since their
visit and we can't find the
album. A few weeks ago,
while talking to the wife
on the phone I mentioned
it She said we didn't show
the album to them but she
wished we had. Abby, we
know we did!
Should I mention it
again or just make a new
one and never invite them
appear to be seeing the
picture clearly now. While
the couple may have been
charming, they're not
nearly as "nice" as you
assumed. If you want a
record of your cruise, by
all means create a second
album. (Surely you don't
need me to advise you to
never invite them back.)
*k* **e .*

DEAR ABBY: My boy-
friend and I have been
together for 19 years. We
have three children and
from the outside looking
in, you would think we
have a wonderful life. But
my boyfriend has been
unfaithful numerous times,
which has caused me
to have trust issues and
insecurities. I took him
back because I wanted our
children to be raised in a
two-parent home, which is
hard to find these days.
The problem is, two years
ago I cheated on him. He
found out by tracking my
phone, bugging the house
and monitoring my calls
and emails. He "reminds"
me of it every day and we
argue constantly. I'm sorry
it happened, but I still have
trust issues because I can't
see what he has been up to.
I guess my question is is
this a relationship worth
saving? GOOD FOR THE
review your letter. Nineteen
years as a couple, three kids
and he's a serial cheater.
You cheated too, and your
complaint is that you can't
monitor your boyfriend's
activities the way he is scrui-
* tinizing yours?
This is not a relationship
worth saving in my book.

www.DearAbby.com or
P.O. Box 69440, Los
Angeles, CA 90069.







ARIES (March 21-April
19): Your spontaneity,
charm and imaginative
ideas will attract atten-
tion. Speaking freely will
encourage someone to
engage in a relationship
with you for personal or
professional reasons. Don't
let emotions stop you from
accepting an offer. ****-
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Keep your business
private and you will avoid
getting into a debate with
someone who doesn't
agree with the way you
are doing things. Offer a
helping hand to an orga-
nization in need and you
will raise ydur profile and
reputation. -***
GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Emotions will be diffi-
cult to control and can lead
to trouble if you are not
honest about the way you
feel or what you are doing.
Choose your battles wisely
and stick to the truth if
you don't want to ruin your
reputation. ***
CANCER (June 21-July
22): Ask questions if you
feel uncertain about a situ-
ation. You must be satisfied
with the answersbefore you
engage in a partnership or
project that will influence
your life. An unusual turn of
events will lead to a last-min-
ute change. ***
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
You'll feel compelled to

Eugenia Last

help others. Whether it is
to show off or out of the
goodness of your heart,
you must avoid being
taken advantage of. Love is
on the rise, and engaging
in such an encounter will
change your life. ****
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Handle whatever situ-
ation you face carefully.
An emotional matter will
cause anger and lead to a
conflict with someone you
are involved with finan-
cially. Protect your assets,
possessions and emotional
well-being, or you may end
up in a costly battle. **
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Qct
22): Do the best job pos-
sible or you will be criti-
cized. A change in position
or the environment in
which you are working can
be expected. Don't allow
a partnership to limit your
productivity. Romance is
highlighted. *****
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): Don't overspend on
unnecessary luxuries.
Protect what you have and
set up a budget that allows
you to save for the future.
Put together a unique plan
that will help you combine
what you have to offer with
someone else's expertise.

22-Dec. 21): Don't say any-
thing that may incriminate:
you. Someone will misin-
terpret you and make you
look bad. A relationship
may be exciting, but if it
has the potential to hinder
your reputation, you are
best to keep your distance.

Jan. 19): Avoid inplement-
ing change based on hear-
say. Impulsive moves will
lead to loss. Protect your
assets, home and family.
Let your intuition guide
you and you will bypass
someone taking advantage
of you and what you have
to offer. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Rely on the
people who have always
been there for you. A
favorable domestic change
will lead to greater stabil-
ity. Romance is in the
stars, and making special
plans to enhance your love
life will bring good results.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Be careful what you
share. Someone will take
advantage of your generos-
ity. Emotions will be dif-
ficult to control. You will
lack good judgment when
dealing with friends, rela-
tives and neighbors. Don't
make promises you won't
want to keep. **
