Filibua er


Sandra Day
O'Connor
Bush may
consider
"gender
factor."


Associated Press
WASHINGTON Senate Judi-
ciary Committee members crystal-
ized the debate about Justice
Sandra Day O'Connor's replace-
ment on Sunday, making clear that
a hard-line conservative would
trigger a furious battle on Capitol
Hill that could touch off a
Democratic filibuster.


The division emerged amid a
conservative lobbying campaign
against one possible pick, Attorney
General Alberto Gonzales, a long-
time Texas friend of President
Bush who is considered too mod-
erate by right-wing Republicans.
"I don't think the social conser-
vatives ought to prejudge Attorney
General Gonzales. Attorney Gener-
al Gonzales may not even be in the


picture," Senate Judiciary Com-
mittee Chairman Arlen Specter, R-
Pa., said on ABC's "This Week"
Specter said he thinks Bush will
consider "the gender factor" in
making a selection, and the fact
that O'Connor was a pivotal swing
vote.
However, it is unclear what the
president will consider.
Bush has said in the past that


conservative Justices Antonin
Scalia and Clarence Thomas are
the kind of people he admires on
the Supreme Court
Bush was at Camp David
mulling over his options, while
Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer
of New York was urging a summit
between senators from both par-
ties and the president.
Asked whether he would sup-
port a filibuster if a hard-liner is
chosen, the judiciary committee's
ranking Democrat, Sen. Patrick


Leahy, said, "I would hope that we
don't reach that point."
"That's why we're going to meet
with the president in about a week,
going to urge that he put somebody
who would unite the country, not
divide the country," said Leahy of
Vermont.
"I have no intention of filibuster-
ing, but it depends on who the
president sends," said Democratic
Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware.

It's official. Inverness'
beloved reptilian is no
longer just another name-
less cooter it's Sunny
Cooter.
Selected by a panel of
judges from about 226 pro-
posed names, "Sunny'" had
the best ring to it along with a
twist ofFloridian lair: City of
Inverness Parks and Recrea-
tion assistant director Laura
Moin5 said
The news became public
at 7 p.m. Sunday at the annu-
al Patriotic Evening at Liber-
ty Park. City officials estimat-
ed 3,000 to 4,000 attendees at
the event, which lasted well
into the evening as a host of
fireworks created quite the
spectacle.
Once an avid fisherman
Otis Dees, 69, entered the
name "-Suiny" into the city's


contest sponsored by the
Inverness Pioneer under the
notion that cooters are well
known for basking in the
Florida sun.
"I've always seen cooters
sunning on rocks or in the
water," Dees said. 'And that's
just a normal thing for coot-
ers to do. You see a 10-foot
log and they'll be 10 cooters
on it."

Spending his Fourth of July
in a place where fireworks are
deadly and a hot meal is a lux-
ury, 22-year-old Austin Roth is
serving his country.
Roth is an Army specialist in
Iraq and agreed to be inter-
viewed via e-mail about his


experiences.
Roth graduated from Seven
Rivers Christian School in
2001 and immediately began at
the University of Central
Florida with an ROTC scholar-
ship.
His family said he always
talked about joining the mili-
tary, but after the Sept. 11 ter-
rorist attacks, he couldn't wait
until he graduated from col-
lege in 2006 to begin serving
his country.

A Sheriff's deputy searching for the
home of a 2-year-old boy roaming a Crystal,
River street Sunday afternoon found more
than just the toddler's guardians.
Stephanie Berger, 18, 10101 W Pamon-
deho Circle, and her boyfriend, Jeremy
Ryan Parker, 18, 12185 W Checkerberry
Drive, Crystal River, were arrested after
the deputy found marijuana and various
drug paraphernalia in her home, accord-
ing to an arrest report.
The deputy found the 2-year-old boy's
home after knocking on several doors
along West Pamondeho Circle. A motorist
called authorities after spotting the bare-
foot boy, wearing only a T-shirt and a dia-
per, walking down the street alone.
Upon entering Berger's home, the
deputy saw a clear plastic bag filled with
marijuana out in the open on top of a desk
next to the living room, according to the.
report. The deputy also found a black-and-
blue pipe, a green-striped water pipe, a
brown-and-black pipe, a fish-shaped pipe,
rolling papers and Endocet pills.
Parker told the deputy he bought the
marijuana the night before and smoked it,
according to the report He said the black-
and-blue pipe belongs to Berger, the green-
striped water pipe is his and the brown-
and-black pipe is Berger's mother's, who
also smokes marijuana with them. ;:::.
Berger and Parker iw eie aitested and
released on their own recognizance.
Constructive possession of marijuana
and constructive possession of.parapher-
nalia charges are possible against Ber-
ger's mother, according to the report.
These charges would be based on a check-
book and pay stub with her name on it
found in the same drawer as one of the
pipes, the pills and various paraphernalia,
according to the report.
A representative with the Department of
Children and Families responded to
Berger's home and said the boy could be
turned over to his mother.


Veterans receive honors

The Veterans of Foreign Wars
Post 4252 in Hernando filled with
folks many wearing Old Glory's
hues Sunday as 28 veterans
received medals and commemora-
tive coins for their service and
dedication.
U.S. Rep Ginny Brown-Waite did
the honors, shaking hands and
posing for photographs.
"As we sit and we watch the.fire-
works, think about our young men
and woman serving in Iraq,"
Brown-Waite said. "Think about
the fireworks they see everyday.
Think about the fear that each and
every one has.
"When you see the fireworks
and when you see the cars, please
think for a minute to remember
the men and women serving in
Iraq and all over the world."
More than 230 veterans, friends
and family gathered at the post for
the appreciation ceremony and for
a Fourth of July barbecue.
From Leesburg to Dunnellon to
Brooksville and everywhere in
between, Brown-Waite presented
the service honors to veterans liv-
ing in Citrus County and neighbor-
ing counties in the Fifth District.
Post 4252 Cmdr. Bob Prive said
the post hosts similar ceremonies
throughout the year in admiration
and appreciation for the county's
and neighboring counties' numer-
ous veterans.
"They mean a lot to the veter-
ans," Prive said, "especially the
World War II vets."

It's easy to forget, but we
can't.
That's the message Laurel
Varilek wants America to hear
as we celebrate our country's
freedom. Her son, Staff Sgt.
Todd E. Pennington, is current-
ly in Iraq, serving with the
467th Engineering Battalion,
based in Millington, Tenn.
Recently, Pennington sent an
American flag that had been
flown in HealthSouth's honor in
Baqubah, Iraq, on June 12 to his
mother and the staff at Health-
South Citrus Surgery Center in
Lecanto where she works.
Baquabah is about 35 miles
northeast of Baghdad.
"My son spent 10 years as
active Army and almost three
years as,a reservist," Varilek said.
'"When the war in Iraq started he
said, 'I need to get back in."'
His job as a combat engineer


is to go out looking for IEDs,
improvised explosive devices,
such as roadside bombs and
the explosives that suicide
bombers strap to themselves.
"Before he was even de-
ployed, we at HealthSouth
were sponsoring soldiers, send-
ing (care) packages with food,
phone cards, footballs any-
thing to keep their spirits up,"
Varilek said. "Everybody here
is eager to support the mission.
We've got some ex-military
here, and every day they ask
about (my son) and his unit."
Some of the items they sent'
include remote-control cars,
which have been used to set off
mines, and, compliments of Dr.
Grillo, one of HealthSouth's
doctors, a bug zapper. Pen-
nington called the mosquitoes
and sand flies "an enemy in
their own right, putting
Florida's bugs to shame."
A letter written by Maj.
Michael Bellenoit, commander
of Pennington's unit, com-
mended the staff at Health-

South for their support.
"Letters, gifts and packages
from home remind us of what it
is we are fighting for and those
things that make our nation
great," he wrote. "The sense of
pride and support we receive
from your mailings helps to
keep our motivation and spirits
up in the face of all those dan-
gers America's soldiers face
overseas. Although the days are
long and many times tedious,
the fighting spirit and morale of
the men remains high.
"I contribute much of this to
the fact that they feel support-
ed by men and women like you,
that the American people have
not forgotten them and that
their safe return is both prayed
and wished for by the general
public," he wrote.
Varilek said her son has
often remarked about the ded-
ication of the people serving in
Iraq, that when they had the
election it was a "wonderful

most of us take for granted."
She said the reason she con-
tacted the Chronicle about
receiving the flag was not to
trumpet HealthSouth, but to
draw attention to the waning
sense of patriotism and troop


support across the nation.
"I feel sad that so many peo-
ple aren't supportive of the
war," she said. "People are
tired of it; they're not flying
flags like they used to, but we
still have men and women over
there fighting for freedom."


Topless woman protests law


Associated Press
DAYTONA BEACH -
A stay-at-home mother
was arrested when she
exposed her breasts to
protest laws that bar
women from publicly
going topless.
Elizabeth Book, of
Ormond Beach, pulled
down her top Saturday at
a city auditorium, where
she stood near four


Grecian muse sculptures
that are nude from the
waist up.
Book, who had spread
word of the protest days
in advance, was arrested
on a charge of disorderly
conduct.
The police report said
Book's actions caused a
traffic jam and that
pedestrians blocked the
city sidewalk as they
watched her.


"The defendant's
actions further induced,
corrupted the public
morals and outraged the
sense of public decency...
in a tourist area," the
report states. "The defen-
dant's actions constituted
a breach of the peace."
Book, who is in her
early 40s, said she
planned to fight the
charge, which is a sec-
ond-degree misde-


meanor punishable by up
to 60 days in jail and a
$500 fine.
The city passed the
rule barring women from
being topless in public in
2002 to curb indecency at
special events.
Last week, a judge
threw out nudity charges
lodged by Daytona Beach
police against Book for
going topless during Bike
Week in March 2004.

Floridian leads FBI
to stolen stamps
MIDLAND, Mich. A Florida
Sman with an eye for detail led
the FBI to part of a stamp col-
lection that showed up on eBay
more than two decades after
being stolen from the home of a
collector.
Stamp collector Michael
Perlman, of Fort Lauderdale,
had pored over the black-and-
white records of Charles J.
Starnes' collection. The original
collection, with distinct pen
marks and imperfections, was
taken from Starnes' home in
1983.
Starnes died in 1993.
After spotting the eBay listing
May 21, Perlman called authori-
ties and was in touch with the
FBI the next day. The FBI
seized the stamps that were in
the possession of the widow of
a deceased coin collector.
FBI spokeswoman Sarah
Oates in Tampa said she was
told the collection could be
worth nearly $1 million.

Specter to joke, "I heard the

The experience has provid-
ed several 690th soldiers with a
unique perspective on a coun-
try far different than their own.
"You hear people tell you
stories of what to expect, but
you have to actually be there to
know what it's like," said Spc.
Graciela Raffler, of Orlando.
There's the dust, which she
said covers you like baby pow-
der and gets on everything.
What little rain the area gets
does little to help.
"Once it stops raining, every-
thing's immediately dry again,"
Raffler said.
There's no air-conditioning
to battle the heat, which was
about 106 degrees last
Thursday around 7 p.m., when
Raffler spoke with the
Chronicle.
Hours before family mem-
bers in the United States would

head to work, the unit was


O'Connor's swing position on

move that would risk alienat-
ing the president's far-right

cal war.
Schumer provided this
description of his proposed
summit aimed at avoiding a
bruising battle that interest
groups on left and right are
girding for: "We roll up our
sleeves, let down our tie and
discuss things all day long.
Would that help? Who knows."
He added, "It can't hurt."
Republicans are looking for
less consultation, not more.
"It's not our job to deter-


already busy with an important
job.
Sgt. Douglas Lofreddo of
Homosassa said the unit pro-
vided security for a convoy,
making a mid-morning stop in
Sayad, a small farming village
northwest of the capital of
Kabul, to drop off much-need-
ed supplies for villagers.
'"A lot of us got to see first-
hand how the locals lived,"
said SgL Adam Wood of Spring
Hill. "It was pretty eye-opening
to see what they need and how
much they appreciate us."
For many missions, the unit
has worked alongside the Civil
Affairs Division to help, hand-
ing out supplies like clothing,
medicine, pencils, shoes and
other items.
"They allow us to jump into
the mix and hand out needed
supplies like food and water,"
Lofreddo said.

tee.
Republicans urged Demo-
crats to accept the idea that
Democratic nominees histori-
cally had been given ample lee-
way, and that Republican nom-
inees should be given the same
consideration.
"Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a

ingly confirmed," said Sen.

Defense. Raffler, who has been
with the 690th for 15 months,
said the visit gave her a greater
appreciation of where she
lives.
"That made me realize how
much we have compared to
what they have," she said. '"A
pencil is gold to them."
Though being away from
home is tough, this July Fourth
means more to the soldiers
because, like those before
them, the unit members are
ensuring freedom is shared
with others.
"I feel like I'm part of the
holiday now," Raffler said. "It's
an accomplishment."
"It's hard to be away from
our loved ones, but we have a
job to do," Wood said.
While Wood talked of seeing
his children again and Raffler
described a steak dinner as
being the perfect holiday treat,

tions to honor their loved ones.


ning prostitution were uncon-
stitutional."
Still a powerful memory for
the Senate is the 18-year-old
fight that ended in defeat for
Republican Supreme Court
nominee Robert Bork, who was
seen as too extreme in his con-
servative views.
"I wish we could drop these
political terms for the court,
because the court is all too
political now," Bork said.
Leahy appeared on NBC's
"Meet the Press," Schumer and
Cornyn on ABC's "This Week,"
Biden on CBS's "Face the
Nation," McConnell on Fox
News Sunday and Bork on
CNN's "Late Edition."


Julie Lofreddo, Douglas'
wife, said she and her family,
including her 18-month-old
son, Robert, would be hanging
yellow ribbons around trees in
her neighborhood. Though
she's had to make sacrifices -
including celebrating her sec-
ond wedding anniversary
alone she said the holiday
has now taken on a deeper
meaning.
"My whole wardrobe, I think
90 percent of it, is red, white
and blue now ... even my kids,"
she said.
Tammie Griffin, of
Homosassa, the wife of unit
member Staff Sgt. Kenneth
Griffin, said the holiday's dif-
ferent without him around, but
she's proud of what he and the
others are doing.
"To know if it weren't for
people like my husband" she
said, "there wouldn't be more
countries that would have free-
dom."

for Iraq in Januazy. Our job is
twofold. To put it simply, we
are trying to put an end to the
insurgency by killing or captur-
ing AIF (Anti-Iraqi Forces,)
and winning the hearts and
minds of the Iraqi people.
Throughout a day, we do both
of these missions, many times
within an hour of each other.
"Sometimes we patrol the
city in search ofAIF, or look for
weapons caches inside the
city.

"Almost a month ago, we
were attacked by two VBIEDs
(Vehicle-Borne Improvised
Explosive Devices), and a sui-
cide bomber. Our Patrol Base
is the only one of its kind in
Iraq, in that we live literally in
the middle of the city in an
abandoned school.
"The VBIEDs exploded first
thing in the morning and
knocked most of us out of bed.
The barricades that protect our
patrol base are only about 50
meters from the building.
"The explosions from the
cars knocked some of them
down and a suicide bomber
tried to run in. However, a
machine-gunner on the roof
was able to stop him. He deto-

nated after being hit
"Luckily, no soldiers were
killed, or even seriously
wounded, for that matter.
"Unfortunately, several
homes next to our Patrol Base
were destroyed or seriously
damaged and a couple of civil-
ians were killed. We are shot at
by mortars or RPGs on a daily
basis and have become pretty
accustomed to them, but that
was definitely the most inter-
esting experience. It was quite
an alarm clock One of the cars
left a crater six feet deep in the
street, to give you some idea of
the magnitude of the ,explo-
sion."
Roth's family knows he pro-
tects them by not telling them
all of what he's involved in.
His wife and high school
sweetheart, Julie Roth, is
attending school at Florida
State University. She said he
calls and e-mails her as often
as he can to make the distance


not seem as far.
"I had trouble with the mili-
tary thing. I wanted a husband
with a 9 to 5 job," Mrs. Roth
said. "But the things that make
him want to serve and go over
there are probably the things I
love most about him."
Recently, Austin was called
to Baghdad, as a standby wit-
ness to an Iraqi insurgent.
"We detained this particular
guy when he tried to run from
us in his car after we tried to
stop him. In his car, we found
several AK-47s, a medium
machine gun, a suicide vest,
grenades, Rocket Propelled
Grenade launchers, and sever-
al sacks full of rifle ammuni-
tion. He tried to tell us that he
was a taxi driver, and later that
he had stolen that vehicle. We
didn't believe' him either.
Unfortunately, they didn't even
need my testimony to convict
him.
"However, it was interesting


to see the new Iraqi govern-
ment at work It is great to see
that they are making strides
toward being a free and demo-
cratic government, and a
reformed legal system is a
great sign of that. Needless to
say, I am proud of being able to
take part of what is going on
over here. I truly believe that
this cause is a worthy endeav-
or."
Roth's mother, Janice Roth,
said like Julie, she's struggled
with her son's decision to join
the military. Her Christian
faith has taught her killing is
wrong, and she couldn't figure
out how justifying death in
warfare is any different.
However, she has come to
believe God is leading and car-
ing for her son.
"He was concerned that his
mother wouldn't be proud of
him, but I'm very proud of my
son," his mother said.
His brother Chris Roth, 20,
said his brother is a role model.
"I'm proud of him for going
over there and doing it," Chris
said. "But I can't help but
worry about him."


Roth's dad, Steven Roth, is a
doctor in Inverness. He's
always known about his son's
passion to serve his country.
Recently, he put up a flag-
pole in his front yard in honor
of his son.
"I think about Austin every
time I see it," Dr. Roth said.
While Roth's family said this
Fourth of July holds a deeper
meaning for them with Roth
being in Iraq but for him,
he'd forgotten about the holi-
day
"That may seem unpatriotic,
but I assure you that it is not. If
anything, it should show the
monotonous nature of war, or

The first meal at Eglin for
most Cubans was a box lunch,

who pulled duty at both camps.
"Apparently at that time
Cuba did not have apples. or

have thought we were giving
them a million dollars."
However, Nguyen's favorite -

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


Special to the Chronicle
The Florida Yards and
Neighborhoods (FY&N) pro-
gram, as part of the Citrus
County Extension Service, is
pleased to announce the next
"Butterflies and Bats" class
from 9 to 11 a.m., Friday, July
15.
The class will be at the
Citrus County Canning Center
at 3405 W Southern St.,
Lecanto, which is off of County
Road 491 just north of State
Road 44. The cost of the class is
$6, which includes all materi-
als needed for the class. For
registration, call 726-2141. The
deadline for registration is
Friday
The class will be based on
one of the nine principles of
the FY&N program. You can
reward yourself with the beau-
ty of color in your Florida-
friendly yard filled with butter-


flies. Butterfly gardening is an
easy and fun outdoor activity.
Learn how to attract butterflies
to your garden habitat.
Butterfly gardening is based on
butterfly preferences, but luck-
ily butterfly and human prefer-
ences are compatible.
Bats are also a beautiful part
of nature. Bats eat a large num-
ber of insects in the Florida
environment, but, like blue-
birds, their numbers are on the
decline because of lack of
places to live. Join the class to
discover the benefits and won-
der of attracting these fascinat-
ing mammals to your Florida-
friendly yard.
Programs and activities
offered by the Extension
Service are available to all per-
sons without regard to race,
color, handicap, sex, religion or
national origin. For persons
with disabilities requiring spe-
cial accommodations, call the

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


Buzz off
TIPPERARY, Ireland -An Irish
man tried to break a world record
and create a little buzz by coaxing
more than 350,000 bees to land on
his body. Alas, the bees just would-
n't behave.
During nearly two hours June
25, Philip McCabe, 59, got only
200,000 black bees or 60
pounds of them to cover him.
The record is 350,000 yellow bees
on the body, or 87.5 pounds.
'We had bees flying around so
much, we couldn't get them to
land," McCabe said. He blamed
the 63-degree Fahrenheit weather
in Tipperary. Had it been warmer,
the bees would have followed their
docile queen bee, which McCabe
had on his chin.
Also, McCabe said his feet fell
asleep after about two hours, forc-
ing him to get rid of the swarm
before he fell over.
Seven bees stung McCabe's
arms as he jumped from the scale,
but he said he is used to stings
and they didn't bother him.
He wore only underwear, a back
brace and goggles.
A key challenge was remaining
calm.
"If I was giving off a strong smell
of aggression or anxiety, they'd
sting me," McCabe said. "I hadn't a
fear in the world."
McCabe, who heads the Irish
Beekeeper Association, said his
attempt was part of his campaign
to raise money to help fight poverty
in Africa. He said he planned to try
for the record again next year.
High cuisine
LONDON British balloonist
and explorer David Hempleman-
Adams has done his most bizarre
feat to date staging the world's
highest formal dinner party.
Clad in formal evening wear,
Hempleman-Adams, along with fel-
low explorer Bear Grylls and Lt.
Commander Alan Veal, ascended
to a height of 24,262 feet on June
23 in a balloon above Bath in
southwest England.
Grylls, 30, and Veal, 34, then
climbed 40 feet down to a platform
with a formally laid dinner table,
where they dined on asparagus
spears followed by poached
salmon and a terrine of summer
fruits,, all served in specially
designed warm boxes.
After a salute to Queen
Elizabeth II, the pair parachuted to
earth. -* .. -. . -- .. .
'Without doubt, this is the
strafigest record I have ever
attempted," Hempleman-Adams,
44, said Thursday.
The trio faced temperatures of
minus-58 degrees and risked con-
tracting the life-threatening condi-
tion of hypoxia, in which the body
is starved of oxygen.
Project director Alex Rayner said
the stunt had been verified by offi-
cials from the Guinness Book of
World Records.
The previous record for a high-
altitude dinner party was held by
adventurer Henry Shelford, who
staged his event 22,326 feet up a
Tibetan mountain in 2004.
Whoops!
CORNWALL, Vt. A rare
whooping crane is spending the
summer in Vermont after mysteri-


ously veering 800 miles off course
on its migration toward the
Midwest.
One of only about 400 such
birds in the world, the 4 1/2-foot-tall
female has been in a river flood-
plain in the Lake Champlain valley
since at least June 9, spending
most of its time on farmer Randy
Quesnel's land.
"It is kind of neat, although I
would be a lot more interested if it
was a deer out there," Quesnel
said.
Whooping cranes have been a
federally endangered species since
1967 and are subject of an intense
restoration project among U.S.,
Canadian and state wildlife agen-
cies.
The Vermont bird is part of that
project and is fitted with a tracking
device.
The bird was expected to spend
the summer at Necedah National
Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin, about
180 miles southeast of
Minneapolis, where it spent the first
few months of its life.
Joe Duff, co-founder of
Operation Migration, an Ontario-
based nonprofit that it is part of the
Whooping Crane Eastern
Partnership program, cannot
explain why the bird landed in
Vermont this summer.
'We're not sure what she's doing
there, but she seems to be select-
ing proper habitat for whoopers,"
Duff said. 'We want to leave her
there as long as possible and see
if she can figure out her way back."

His wife, Robin, who was partici-

program, was a passenger. Both
were taken to the University of
Tennessee Medical Center for
injuries. She was treated and
released. He was kept a little
longer.
Deputy Nathan Brown picked up
Nations around 7 a.m. Sunday.
While driving him home, Brown,

and crashed.
"We are thankful that no one

Sheriff Bill White said.
While the cars were lost, White

Traffic light rule C 0
I was calling regarding a A
power outage that we had off
(State Road) 44 and Rock
Crusher, all the way down to
(County Road) 486. My prob-
lem is the fact that when the
power goes out, the (traffic)
lights are out, and we're sup- CALL
posed to treat all lights as a 563
four-way stop. And I wanted tJ ."
to know why people insisted,
on the main road, (S.R.) 44, and also on
the main road of the intersection of
(S.R.) 44 and (C.R.) 486, why they
insisted on just driving through there at
50 mph and not stopping at the light and
having consideration for other people,
and treating it as a four-way stop like
we're supposed to, especially when
there is a hurricane and the power is
out.
Hits the mark
This is about the editorial today, which
is June 29, on the (Jessica) Lunsford
case. I'd like to say that that article was
right on target and Ginny Brown-Waite
and Bill' Grant are seeming like they're
just running their mouths about a case
they know nothing about, all for political
gain.
Responsible parents
This is in regard to "Blaming others,"
in the Tuesday, June 28, column. To the
person who wrote regarding the child
who shot Johnny Masukovitch: Don't
they think that parents are responsible
for an 11-year-old child? An 11-year-old
is not old enough to understand respon-
sibility. If they put a code or a combina-
tion somewhere where the child could
find it, even if it was in a hidden place,
.the responsibility falls on the parents.
This should not be anywhere a child
could find it.
Up to speed
I'm calling in reference to the article in
the paper, "Save fuel," where the guy
says everybody's going 60 to 70 mph
and he or she tries to keep it under 55.
When you're going 55 mph in a 70-mph
zone, that's the reason there are so
many accidents in the state of Florida.
You need to try to keep it up to the
speed limit and keep the flow of traffic

Bike races
I'm very thrilled about the
boat races' this year during
the Fourth of July on our
lakes. I think next year we
ought to have motorcycle rac-
ing on the golf courses in
0579 Citrus County. I think it will be
fun to see motorcycles going
up to 100 mph back and forth
across the golf courses for eight hours
during the holiday weekend, don't you?
Not a new idea
You know, in Wednesday's (June 29)
Sound Off section in the paper, it's really
funny to read what some of these peo-
ple put in there in Sound Off. Here's a
guy talking about "Build a toll road," and
he's wondering why somebody hasn't
come up with an idea that would bypass
(U.S.) 19 with all the traffic and build a
toll road, it's really needed. I think this
guy must have just moved into the coun-
ty ... I guess he doesn't know about the
Suncoast Parkway idea, huh?
Search and seizure
President George ... Bush has suc-
cessfully created the Patriot Act, an act
that has removed our constitutional right
to protection against illegal search. The
Supreme Court of the United States has
removed our constitutional protection
against illegal seizure. Congress is pro-
viding nothing more than lip service for
these issues and in the end will do noth-
ing. It has become obvious that all three
branches of government no longer exist
to serve America or Americans.
Changing reasons
Do you know what George Bush said
in his speech? What he said is, he can
tell us anything and expect us to believe
him. Remember he said we went into
Iraq because of weapons of mass
destruction? Then he said we were
there to remove Saddam Hussein. Now,
we're there to stop terrorism. He also
said Iraq would pay for the war with oil.
Well, we must be getting it in the form of
Vaseline. All Americans need to read the
Downing Street memos. It's time we
hear the truth about Iraq.


Race: Mexico doesn't get it,


W hat is it with
Mexico lately?
When did it hire
David Duke as an image
consultant?
I can't imagine what else
might explain that nation's
recent blundering into not
just one but two racially
charged controversies. The
first, of course, was
President Vicente Fox's
remark in May that
Mexican immigrants in the
United States take. work
"not even blacks" are will-

ing to do. Fox's comment outraged
many in this country and bestirred the
readily bestirrable Al Sharpton and
Jesse Jackson to go down and show
him the error of his ways.
For what it's worth, I thought the
anger was pitched a little high. Fox's
larger point, after all, was unassail-
able: Mexican immigrants do grimy,
low-paying work that most Americans
of whatever ancestry consider beneath
them. His mistake was those three lit-
tle words, "not even blacks," which
suggest blacks are the gold standard
for wretchedness and desperation.
Not correct, not terribly sensitive but
also, I thought, not worthy of more
than a few sharp words of correction.
One can't be as sanguine about
Mexico's latest faux pas. It seems the
country is issuing a series of postage
stamps in honor of Memin Pinguin, a
Mexican cartoon character created in
the 1940s. He is a black boy with
swollen lips, simian features and a


propensity for ineptness
and trouble. In other words,
he is a classic pickaninny,
albeit one said to be much
beloved in Mexico.
Which tells you some-
thing about Mexico.
Its response to the latest
controversy is even more
revealing. While Memin
Pinguin is such an obvious
affront that even the White
House felt compelled to
denounce it, a spokesman
for Fox told Reuters he


couldn't understand what
all the fuss was about. Come to think of
it, Fox himself seemed surprised by
the response to his ill-chosen words in
May.
Our friends down south need to get
out more often.
I'm reminded of the controversy over
"Darkie," a popular toothpaste that
was sold in China until well into the
'80s. Carried a picture of a blackface
figure in a top hat. The Chinese could-
n't understand why anybody was upset
It can hardly be immaterial that
China, like Mexico, is a homogeneous
society where people of African her-
itage have little visibility or voice. But
insularity and ignorance are no
excuse. China is not the world. Mexico
is not the world. And if even homoge-
nous nations wish to do business in the
world, they should, at a minimum, be
able to conduct themselves without
giving gratuitous offense to citizens of
the world.
It's worth noting that in decades


past, Americans who came here fromio
China and Mexico protested popular
and beloved American cultural iconsls
based on ugly stereotypes and droveig
them to extinction. When's the last
time you saw Charlie Chan or the Frito
Bandito? w
Memin Pinguin should join them inot
obscurity. He is a reminder of a painful b
time in U.S. history, a time whenid
"Nigger Head" stove polish was sold in
stores, pickaninnies cavorted in ais
Disney movie, Mickey Rooney acted in b
blackface and black actors could actA
only as servants, criminals andio
layabouts with an unnatural attractiorLq
to fried chicken. A time when "strange g
fruit" hung in the poplar trees. ,T
Mexico never had Jim Crow, so
maybe Memin Pinguin cannot have
the same resonance there as it does3{
here. But a stereotype is a stereotype,9'
no matter its country of origin. Mexico
must recognize that it is hurtful and a
sign of stunted character to blithel
undermine the worth and dignity of
people racial minorities emphati-
cally included.
It feels strange to have to say this at
a time when Mexico's president is
seeking respect for the contributions
Mexican immigrants make to
American life. Apparently, he doesn't-
understand that respect is a two-way
street.
You've got to give some to get some.'

LETTERS / to the Editor'


Rename park
It is my understanding that the
Crystal River Council has indicated it,
plans to consider changing the name
of Southeast Eighth Avenue to Martin
Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.
Surely there are more prominent
places than a small street behind a
grocery store that can be used to
honor this great American. Why not
change the name of Copeland Park or
Bicentennial Park to Martin Luther
King, Jr. Memorial Park?
Another alternative might be to
place an "honorary" sign on an exist-
ing street We have two names for
State Road 44 (Gulf to Lake) and U.S.
19 (Suncoast). Why not do the same
for one of the main streets in Crystal
River perhaps Citrus Avenue? My
personal choice would be to make
Bicentennial Park and the area hous-
ing the Crystal River City Hall the
Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial
Plaza.
By selecting a more prominent site
for honoring Dr. King, the Crystal
River City Council would show the
importance of this man in our history
and would not require that 300+ resi-
-dents and businesses who have a
mailing address on Southeast Eighth
Avenue be inconvenienced with the
financial burden, of having to change
their city, county, state and federal
legal documents and databases, as
well as bank and credit records, sub-
scriptions, letterheads, business
cards, service contracts, notification
to family and friends, etc.
I hope the- council will rethink their
selection of a site to honor Dr. King.
He deserves to be honored in an
important part of the city, not a street
behind a shopping center.

that begs a few questions, doesn't it?
Do Democrats think the attack on
9/11 that killed 3,000 Americans was a
"legal" act? Do they think it was justi-
fied? When the Iraqi dictator refused
to obey the U.N. sanctions that led to
the war on terrorism, was he acting
"legally"?
When the terrorists attacked the
Trade Center in '93, the American
Embassy in Africa, the battleship
Cole, then planned and implemented
the horrific events on 9/11, were they
acting "legally"? Did they conduct
those attacks because they "like us"
or want us to like them? Such naivete
(or blind partisanship) defies logic.
The people who hate America will
not suddenly "like us" simply because
we turn our collective cheeks when
they execute mass murder on our citi-
zens (or their own citizens). I chal-
lenge those who condemn Bush to
offer some solutions, to tell us exactly
how they would defeat those who
want to destroy us. Instead, they con-
tinually snipe like children, claiming
to be the only ones with the "facts,"
and the only ones who know and tell
the truth. The fact is, if they offered


some real, viable solutions and ideas
for defeating the terrorists and keep-
ing America:safe, they would win
elections. Until then, they simply
spew sour grapes. Although destruc-
tive and childish, it's not likely to -
change anytime soon.

Divisive Durbin
I certainly hope that all you "Blame
America Firsters" and "Pro-Islamo-
Fascist cheerleaders" are heartened
by the words of wisdom uttered by
Dick Durbin recently.
After all, was he not merely stating
the ideology of the left that would
gladly raise a white flag to Al Qaida
so we could understand the reason
they like to kill us? His statements..
should not be dignified by comment,
but it presses the boundaries of
restraint to do less.
His half-hearted apology was just as:
insulting to our veterans, active ser-
vicemen and thinking Ameicans as
the septic venom he spewed in regard'
to America's gulags, death camps and'
killing fields. The man is as obviously-
as insane as Howard Dean ...(To my
knowledge, there have been no aerial
photos of skull racks, mass graves or
crematory ovens on American hold-
ings in Cuba.)
Durbin and Dean have done a com- a
mendable job of giving terrorists who
are eager to "kill the infidel" hope, v
and have both proven to be sorry -
excuses for statesmen.
They have shown to be glaringly '
unfit to represent the American pub- '
lic they were elected and sworn to
represent. Both Durbin and Dean
should, by rights, be removed from 2
office poste haste.
One need to only look at their meth-,
ods and agenda to see why a divided
nation is exactly the goal they and
their lemmings aspire to!

Bush pushes aid for Africa


Associated Press

WASHINGTON Africa has
received intermittent U.S.
attention through the decades,
with periods of neglect inter-
spersed with spasms of activity.
To the surprise of many,
President Bush has been very
much in the latter camp.
As he heads into the Group
of Eight summit meeting this
week in Scotland, Bush seems
almost to have a fixation with
getting the troubled continent
on the right track
The administration said two
weeks ago that aid to Africa has
tripled since 2001; it plans to
double the 2004 level to $8.6
billion by 2010.
"Helping those who suffer
and preventing the senseless
death of millions of people in
Africa is a central commitment
of my administration's foreign
policy," Bush said recently,
with British Prime Minister
Tony Blair at his side.
Blair has pushed the presi-
dent to join with other G-8
leaders to attack Africa's suf-
fering. The Blair-led Com-


mission for Africa issued a
report in March that called for
doubling foreign aid from
wealthy nations to Africa to $50
billion per year by 2010,
increasing to $75 billion annu-
ally by 2015.
Bush has rejected the pro-
posals, saying an incumbent
government cannot tell a
future government how to
spend money Blair's proposal,
he said last month, "doesn't fit
our budgetary process."
Nonetheless, Bush's own
Africa aid targets are far high-
er than any previous adminis-
tration's.
Generosity toward the less
fortunate in Africa appears to
play well among some impor-
tant domestic constituencies; it
is particularly welcomed by
some conservative Christian
allies of the president.
But there is a strategic com-
ponent to the policy as well.
The Sept. 11 attacks called
attention to the way in which
terrorists can thrive in unsta-
ble environments on any conti-
nent, and none has a greater
stability problem than Africa.


Money alone will not elimi-
nate poverty in Africa, said
Andrew Natsios, administrator
for the U.S. Agency for
International Development.
Changes in how programs are
managed and the rule of law
also are needed, he said, citing
corruption as an impediment
to economic development.
"If you don't have those other
conditions, you can put huge
amounts of money into aid pro-
grams and they'll be ineffec-
tive," Natsios told CNN's "Late
Edition" on Sunday
Conflict throughout Africa
has created suffering on a mass
scale, as well as the need for
costly U.N. peacekeeping oper-
ations.
Six of the world's seven most
at-risk countries are in Africa,
according to a recent study by
the Fund for Peace and
Foreign Policy magazine.
Among them was Sudan,
where tens of thousands have
died and more than 2 million
have been displaced since
2003, mostly as a result of a bru-
tal counterinsurgency cam-
paign waged by government-

troubling question: What happened to
her 9-year-old brother?
"Dylan is our Number One priority at
this point," Kootenai County Sheriff's
Capt Ben Wolfinger said at a Sunday
news conference.
There was no sign of the boy whAen
Shasta was found Saturday with Josehl
Edward Duncan III of Fargo, N.D.
Wolfinger said investigators fear he met
the same fate as the three people found
bludgeoned to death in the family's
home.
Other questions, he said, are "Where'
have Duncan and Shasta and Dylan
been the last six weeks? Was Duncan
involved in the triple homicide? Were
other people involved? If so, who and
where are .they?"
Across the country, officials faced
another tough question: Why was the
man accused of kidnapping Shasta
released on bail?
Duncan, 42, had been released a
month before the children disappeared.
He was facing charges of molesting a 6-
year-old boy at a middle-school play-
ground in Minnesota and had spent
more than a decade in prison for raping
a 14-year-old boy "
Prosecutors in Becker County, Minn.,
where Duncan was released, did not
return calls seeking comment. Police in
Fargo said they had been looking for
Duncan since May, but had no indica-
tion he had fled to Idaho.
"Why did this crime occur?"
Wolfinger said. "I think why is probably
the biggest question we have."
The Groene children were reported
missing May 16, when officials found
their mother, Brenda Groene, 40; their
brother, Slade Groene, 13; and Mark
McKenzie, 37, bludgeoned to death in
the family home.
Wolfinger said Duncan invoked his
right to an attorney, but will not have
one appointed until his first court
appearance Tuesday. He was charged
with kidnapping and being held without
bond.
Days before the children disap-
peared, an ominous message was post-
ed on a Web. site that officials said
Duncan maintained.

Ihab al-Sherif, 51, chief of the
Egyptian diplomatic mission in
Baghdad, was kidnapped
Saturday night by about eight
gunmen after he stopped to buy

One of Iraq's most prominent

napping and demanded al-
Sherif's "immediate release."
Al-Sherif was the highest-

kidnapped in Iraq, although a
lower-ranking Egyptian diplo-

A weathered banner hangs outside Sunday at the home where three people were
killed six weeks ago, near Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. More than six weeks after she dis-
appeared from a home where family members were bludgeoned to death, the 8-year-
old girl was found safe Saturday, sharing a meal with a registered sex offender at a
Denny's restaurant In her hometown. Shasta Groene was being reunited with her
father, but her 9-year-old brother, Dylan, remained missing and was feared dead,
Kootenai County Sheriff's Capt. Ben Wolfinger said. Brenda Groene, 40, Slade
Groene, 13, and Mark McKenzie, 37, were killed in the home.


"I am scared, alone and confused, and
my reaction is to strike out toward the
perceived source of my misery, society,"
the May 11 entry said. "My intent is to
harm society as much as I can, then
die."
Forty investigators were working the
case Sunday, with the FBI and Idaho
State Patrol backing up city and county
police.
A search of the stolen Jeep Duncan
was driving has been completed, and
the evidence was forwarded to the FBI,


Wolfinger said. He declined to describe
that evidence.
The astonishing emergence of Shasta
more than six weeks after she disap-
peared, countered by her brother's con-
tinued, ominous absence, created
mixed emotions here.
"We're happy about Shasta," Bill
Todd, owner of Davis Donuts, said
Sunday. "But I'm sad there's no good
news on Dylan yet"
"There can be happy endings,"
employee Darcy Furey said hopefully.


Saudi security forces kill top al-Qaida militant

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia In
a swift and telling victory,
Saudi anti-terror forces killed
the country's top al-Qaida
leader in a gunbattle Sunday,
but experts warn the kingdom
still faces a surge in attacks
despite its two-year crackdown
on militants.
The 90-minute battle in the
eastern Rawdah district, an
upscale neighborhood in the
capital Riyadh, was the latest
blow dealt to Osama bin

whose leaders have either been
killed or captured since author-

he wanted to convey to Iraqis
the U.S. commitment to their

He told U.S. troops and

ORANJESTAD, Aruba -
She's been a regular on "Larry
King Live," "Today" and many
other U.S. television shows
since her teenage daughter
disappeared five weeks ago
during a high school gradua-
tion trip to Aruba.
Nearly every day, Beth
Holloway Twitty takes her
daughter's case to an Ameri-
can hews media eager to
bvoadoat bhd latest hopes and
frustratidh siw ct he; official
investigation. it ..
Armed with graceful charm
and a gripping story, the 44-
year-old speech therapist has
played a major role in making
her 18-year-old daughter's dis-
appearance one of the most
closely watched news stories
in the United States for more
than a month.
Along the way, she has man-
aged to focus international
attention on this tiny Dutch
Caribbean island, putting
tremendous pressure on its
leaders to produce answers.
"By bringing attention to it,
she has been able to apply a
good deal of scrutiny to her
cause," said Wally Dean of the
Washington, D.C.-based Pro-
ject for Excellence in Jour-
nalism. "She has certainly got-
ten the attention of Aruban
authorities."
Prime Minister Nelson
Oduber declared finding Nat-
alee Holloway a "national pri-
ority."
"This case is under a micro-
scope and the world is watch-
ing," government spokesman
Ruben Trapenberg said.
Three young men have been
detained in the Alabama
honor student's May 30 disap-
pearance, but no one has been
charged. Aruban police, the
FBI, Dutch Marines and a
group of Texas volunteers
have conducted extensive
searches throughout the
island. But they have found no
trace of the young woman.
But Holloway Twitty, contin-
uously flanked by family and
friends, says she won't go home
without answers.
Aruba, a protectorate of the
Netherlands, on two different
occasions called in Dutch
Marines for assistance. At one
point Oduber gave public
employees days off so thou-
sands ofArubans could help in
the searches.
Trapenberg said he's never
seen an investigation that has
received so many resources. A
total of 21 police detectives
have been assigned to the case
compared to an average of
three or four for most other
investigations, he said.
On Sunday, police briefly
took each of the three suspects
to separate locations on the
island to analyze their stories
and gather new information,
said Attorney General Karin


Janssen.

Offense carries All-Stars


JON-MICHAEL SORACCHI

For the Chronicle
While people are told to
make a good first impression or
to finish strong, two teams at
Whispering Pines Park in
Inverness showed why a solid
showing in the middle innings
can be just as crucial.
The 11-year-old Inverness
All-Star team improved to 2-0
by breaking out of a heavily
contested game against Central
Citrus and scoring six runs
combined in the third and
fourth innings on their way to
an eventual 7-3 win.
'"At first, we didn't come out
in the right mindset," said
Inverness baseball manager
Pat Martin. "But we've had two
great games in a row and got


great pitching in both games."
Similarly, the 9-10 year-old
Dunnellon softball team upped
their record to 1-1 in pool play
by scoring 10 runs total in three
consecutive innings before tak-
ing a 12-6 win over Inverness.
"It was a really well-played,
exciting game," said Dunnellon
softball manager Mike Marino.
"We want our players to play to
the best of their abilities."
After Nathan Damron
helped pitch his team to a 10-1
win over Crystal River on
Saturday, Inverness got anoth-
er solid pitching performance
from Patrick Martin.
Patrick Martin pitched a
complete game, giving up three
runs while striking out five and
walking two.
Offensively, Garrett
Wilkerson went 3-for-3 with a


triple and two RBIs and substi-
tute John Smith delivered a
key triple to lead Inverness.
Though early on, Central
Citrus put up a fight.
Inverness got on the board in
the top of the first when
Central Citrus pitcher Edward
Kongquee walked Brett Kelsey
with the bases loaded to score
Camron Copas for a 1-0 lead.
But the first frame belonged
to Central Citrus when Kirk
Osbourne and Patrick Rizzo,
the first two batters, reached
base and later came home on a
two-run single up the middle
by Josh Howell .to give Central
Citrus a 2-1 lead.
Central Citrus then took a 3-1
lead in the second inning after
Kongquee reached on a two-
base error, advanced to third
on a sacrifice bunt and scored


off the bat of Colby Frowick's
fielder's choice.
"We were right there," said
Central Citrus coach Richard
Good, whose team fell to the
loser's bracket and will face
West Hernando 6 p.m. Tuesday
in an elimination game. "This
is a game of errors. Whoever
makes the least amount has a
good chance of winning."
In that respect, Central
Citrus made five errors to
Inverness' four and one of
those led to Inverness' second
run.
Copas and Wilkerson led off
the third with back-to-back sin-
gles. A wild pitch put the run-
ners on second and third just
before trouble struck for
Central Citrus.
Kongquee had problems

Roddick fr third

Wimbledon title

Associated Press

WIMBLEDON, England -
Roger Federer felt tense
before facing Andy Roddick
in the Wimbledon final and
jittery during it, his right arm
shaking, his heartbeat rising.
Or so Federer says.
We'll have to take his word
for it because there wasn't a
hint of anything but cool con-
fidence from Federer while
crafting a 6-2, 7-6 (2), 6-4 vic-
tory over Roddick on Sunday
to become just the thbirdana
since 1936 twfiwirthree con-
secutive titless at the All
England Club.
In a rematch of the 2004
Wimbledon final, Federer
used a full assortment of cre-
ative strokes to paint his lat-
est tennis masterpiece on the
sport's most prestigious can-
vas and claim his fifth title in
the last nine Grand Slams.
"It's hard for him because I
really played a fantastic
match one of the best of my
life," said *Federer, the first
man in 50 years to win his
first five major finals.
"Today it seemed liked I
was playing flawless.
Everything was working."
He finished with 49 win-
ners and 12 unforced errors,
an unheard-of ratio. He out-
aced Roddick 11-7. He broke
Roddick four times.
Roddick charged the net
early, coming in behind sec-
ond serves, chipping and
charging, using deep
approach shots. But it didn't
take long for the No. 1-ranked
Federer to calibrate his pass-
ing shots, and he finished
with 16.
"I'm not going to sit around
and sulk and cry. I did every-
thing I could," the second-
seeded Roddick said. "I tried
going to his forehand and
coming in. He passed me. I
tried going to his backhand
and coming in. He passed

figured out a way to pass me,
even though I was at the
baseline."
Federer's performance,
filled with "How'd he do
that?" moments, left every-
one gushing. Even Federer
made reference to how he's:
"dominating the game."
Three-time Wimbledon
champion Boris Becker said:
"We are watching greatness
unfold."
John McEnroe breathlessly
told NBC's viewers: "People


think I'm kidding or that I'm
just talking him up when I
say he's the greatest talent of
all time, but I believe that"
Playing the best brings out
Federer's best. He's 9-1
against Roddick and has won
eight straight matches
against Lleyton Hewitt,
including Friday's semifi-,
nals.
Federer is at a level where
his competition lies not with
the Roddicks and Hewitts,
but the greats of the past,/The
Swiss star joined Bjorn/Borg


(1976-80), -Pete Sampras
(1993-95, 1997-00) and Fred
Perry (1934-36) as the only
men in the last 90 years to tri-
umph at Wimbledon three
years in a row.
Federer's grass-court win-
ning streak is 36 matches,
second only to Borg's 41.

coach, Tony Roche, "espe-
cially on grass."'

On the play, Kongquee then
had Copas in a pickle between

After Komgquee got a strike-
out, Smith came to the plate for
Inverness and faked a bunt
before slapping a hard line

The ball reached the fence and
allowed Wilkinson and

and finishing the Yankees' first
1-0 victory since July 22, 2004,
against the Blue Jays.
"I left the pitch up and Pudge
took advantage of it," Rivera
said. "After that, I just wanted to
get home as soon as possible."
Rivera got a strikeout and two
weak grounders to end the
game.
'After that double, it was over
and out," Torre said. "Mo was


unhittable."
Nate Robertson (3-7) took
another tough loss, allowing
just nine hits in his second
complete game in three starts.
Robertson is 0-4 at home this
season despite a 2.56 ERA.
"A 1-0 game against the
Yankees is a hell of a game,"
Rodriguez said. "We don't
score too many runs for him,
but that's going to change. He

did a tremendous job today,
and we're going to back him
up."
The Tigers went 1-5 on their
homestand and have lost eight
of 10 overall.
"This was a big week for us,
and we didn't actually do very
well," Tigers manager Alan
Trammell said. "As tough as it
is, we have to move on."
Both teams missed several
scoring opportunities.
Detroit had two runners on
in the first two innings, while
the Yankees had runners on
the corners with none out in
the third, only to see Flaherty
pop out and Derek Jeter
ground into a double play.
New York finally broke
through in the fourth, but
could have had more than one
run.
Robinson Cano led off with a
double and scored on
Sheffield's single. After a
strikeout, Sheffield was
thrown out stealing, which cost
the Yankees a run when
Bernie Williams and Hideki
Matsui followed with hits.
Placido Polanco tripled with
two outs in the fifth, but Carlos
Guillen flew out. Wang got out
of the sixth after walking
Magglio Ordonez and hitting
Rodriguez to start the inning.
Torre was pleased with his
rookie's poise, but Wang said it
wasn't complicated.
"I just try to think about the
next hitter and try to slow
myself down," he said. "I try to
make sure to keep the ball
down."

the Texas Rangers 2-1 Sunday.
Jamie Moyer (7-3) won a
matchup of starters in their 40s as
Rogers (9-4) allowed two runs and
six hits in 7 2-3 innings.
Rogers broke a bone in his right
hand when he punched a water ,
cooler June 17 and gave up six
runs in his next start, June 22 at
the Los Angeles Angels. He then
was skipped over for a turn, and
last Wednesday threw an angry fit
that sent a television cameraman
to a hospital and prompted a police
investigation.
Rogers was suspended for 20


games and fined $50,000 Friday
by baseball commissioner Bud
Selig. The players' association
appealed the penalty, allowing
Rogers to continue playing until
after a hearing and a decision.
Blue Jays 5, Red Sox 2
BOSTON Roy Halladay
pitched eight strong innings for his
12th win, leading Toronto to its
eighth win in 11 meetings this sea-
son with first-place Boston.
Halladay (12-4) escaped jams in
the fifth and sixth to hold the high-
est-scoring team in the major
leagues to one run and five hits.


He walked two and struck out six in
lowering his AL-leading ERA to
2.33. Halladay's 12 wins are one
behind Chicago's Jon Garland and
Florida's Dontrelle Willis for the
major league lead.
Scott Schoeneweis earned his
first save since Aug. 30, 2002, for
the Angels against Baltimore.
Boston's Johnny Damon extend-
ed his hitting streak to a career-best
19 games with a first-inning single.
Bronson Arroyo (6-5) took the
loss, giving up three runs and eight
hits in eight innings.
Athletics 7, White Sox 2
OAKLAND, Calif. Barry Zito
pitched eight solid innings, and
Oakland sent Mark Buehrle to his
first loss in nearly three months.
Jason Kendall drove in the go-
ahead run with a single for the A's,
who won for the ninth time in 10
games.
Buehrle (10-2) hadn't lost in 15
starts since April 10, but Chicago's
star left-hander never got comfort-
able in the Coliseum, where he's
winless in 10 career appearances.
He allowed a season-high 14 hits
and the A's snapped his career-
best nine-game winning streak.
Zito (5-8) gave up early solo
homers to Frank Thomas and
Jermaine Dye, but mostly stayed in
control during his third win in five
starts.

mine home-field advantage in
the World Series.
All three NL outfielders
were elected to start for the
first time Philadelphia's
Bobby Abreu, the New York
Mets' Carlos Beltran and St
Louis' Jim Edmonds as was
Cardinals shortstop David
Eckstein. *
Piazza was elected to his
11th start, surpassing Johnny
Bench and Ivan Rodriguez for
the most among catchers. It
will be Piazza's 12th trip over-
all.
Dodgers second baseman
Jeff Kent and St. Louis third
baseman Scott Rolen also were
chosen to start for the NL.
Lee, who leads the NL with a
.383 average, overtook Pujols
in the final week and won by
105,000 votes. Eckstein trailed
the Dodgers' Cesar Izturis by
44,000 in totals released June
29 and won by 570,000.
Damon won the final AL out-
field spot by 57,000 over
Seattle's Ichiro Suzuki, who
was 14,000 ahead of him in


pitched all but 1/3 of an inning.
However, she earned the loss.
Inverness' offensive standout
was Amber Atkinson, who went
3-for-3 with two RBIs and two
runs scored.
For Inverness, the game was a
bit of a letdown after opening
Saturday with a 16-4 win over
Central Citrus.
"We played well in both
games," said Inverness softball
manager Michelle Wolf.
"Dunnellon played a good game.
But we need to be more aggres-
sive at the plate. I think that is
what hurt us the most"
Inverness struck first when
Allison Green walked and then
scored on Atkinson's two-out
triple for a 1-0 lead.
Yet Dunnellon found an
early weakness in the top of
the third after laying down
three straight bunts. The first
two fell for singles and the
third was a sacrifice bunt by
Kelsie Tomaine which scored
Dania Clark for a 1-all game.
Wright followed with her
homer to score Tomaine and
herself for a 3-1 lead.
Inverness came back in the
bottom of the third as
Samantha Kennedy scored on
an Atkinson single over the
shortstop to cut the lead to
one.

earlier drawn a walk, and

team as Roger Clemens,"
Martinez said.

"Danielle Prinz and

PHAN
Continued from Page 1B

I figured I had the one thing
we could all agree wasn't a
sport when I found about com-
petitive eating. The name itself
defies reason. Competitive eat-
ing, that's like saying hardcore
polka or speed crawling.
In the most basic explana-
tion I can muster, competitive
eating is a race to see how
much food you can cram down
your gullet in an allotted
amount of time. When I first
came across it, I thought of it as
a glorified version of a carnival
pie-eating contest, an attrac-
tion best served on the midway.
If we're going to make this a
sport, then why not other: car-
nival-based activities such as
competitive throw a ping pong
ball and win a goldfish, or com-
petitive guess a person's
weight
I had an even more difficult
time wrapping my brain
around this whole thing when I
visited the International
Federation of Competitive
Eating's Web site. (I wouldn't
dare lie about something like
this.) The IFOCE sanctions
events and lists on its Web site
a multitude of things including
records and eater profiles.
When I think of sports
records, I think of things like
scoring 92 goals in a hockey
season or hitting 755 career
homeruns, feats that speak of
prodigious athletic skill.
Competitive eating touts the
following records:
Butter: 7 quarter-pound
sticks, unsalted, 5 minutes by
Donald Lerman.
Baked Beans, Long
Course: 8.4 pounds, 2 minutes,
47 seconds by Sonya Thomas.
(Thomas is the first lady of eat-
ing. She holds numerous
records, yet somehow main-
tains a weight of 105 pounds.)
9 Sweet corn: 33 / 2'ears, 12
minutes by Cookie Jarvis.
The eaters themselves are
just as interesting. No. 4
ranked Eric "Badlands"
Booker is debuting his new rap
album titled "Hungry &
Focused," which is yet another
example of the old adage: All
athletes want to go into enter-
tainment, and all entertainers
want to learn how shovel a ton
of food into their stomachs.
The sport's crowning event,
it's Super Bowl if you will, is
the annual Nathan's Famous
Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating
Contest, held in Coney Island,
N.Y. The IFOCE's top-ranked
eater, Japan's Takeru
Kobayashi, will look to contin-
ue his hold on the event's cov-
eted Mustard Yellow
International Belt The event
will be televised live at noon
on ESPN.
The 134-pound Kobayashi is
considered the Michael Jordan
of his sport and set a new world
record in last year's contest by
downing 53 1/2 hot dogs AND
buns in 12 minutes! (Kobayashi
also holds the cow brains
record, eating 57 of them, or
17.7 pounds, in 15 minutes. His
loss of any significance
occurred when he was
trumped by a Kodiak bear
named Diamond in a hot dog
contest on a show televised by
Fox titled "Man vs. Beast")

Richard Shea, who founded
and runs the organization"
referred me to the reigning
champion of our fair Sunshine
State, "Jammin'" Joe LaRue.
Joe, 44, hails front
Hollywood and looks like ia
pretty scary dude. He stands 6-
foot-8 and is a fairly solid 288
pounds. Ironically he works as
a chef and has been a compet-

Patric
Associated Press
KANSAS CITY, Kan.- Danica
Patrick's first Indy Racing
League pole proved to be the
only highlight of her day.
Patrick battled mechanical
problems and fell off the pace
early, and defending series
champion Tony Kanaan won a
late duel with Andretti Green
teammate Dan Wheldon to win
the Argent Mortgage Indy 300 on
Sunday. Patrick, just the second
woman to start from the pole,
finished ninth at Kansas
Speedway.
"The biggest nose won,"
Kanaan said after his first victo-

Stewart surges in Daytona


Associated Press
DAYTONA BEACH Tony
Stewart climbed from his car,
started scaling the fence and
didn't stop until he reached
the top. The unusual celebra-
tion capped an extraordinary
night at Daytona
International Speedway.
Stewart knew it, all his
rivals did, and so did anyone
else who stayed up to watch
one of the most dominating
NASCAR performances in
recent years.
He was never challenged
in Saturday night's rain-
delayed Pepsi 400, which
ended almost six hours after
its scheduled start. Stewart
led all butnine of the 160 laps
- a race record that not even
an Earnhardt has been able
to top.
"This was a night that won't
happen for a very, very, very
long time," Stewart said. "To
have a car that is that good to
where you can hold off every
challenge that came to us.
That's something hard to do.
"When you have a night
like that, I guess that is why I
was so emotional about it
when I got out of the car and
climbed the flag stand. You
just don't have nights like
that very often."
He started from the pole
and lost the lead only after
pit stops, allowing him to
break the record of 142 laps
led set by Cale Yarborough in
1968.
Stewart won his second
straight race, the first time a
driver from Joe Gibbs Racing
has won two in a row, and the
victory moved him to third in
the series points standings.
He's now 136 points behind
leader Jimmie Johnson and
in better shape at this point
of the season than he won his
only title in 2002.
"I feel like we're in a better
position and. better mode
than we were then," he said.
No other driver could
touch Stewart from the time
the race began, 2/2-hours
after its scheduled start
He pulled out to a comfort-
able lead and said he never
had to worry about the cars
behind him. Stewart only had
to focus on the open road in
front of him.
As third-place finisher
Dale Earnhardt Jr. was map-
ping out a plan to beat him,
Stewart had already used a
dramatic four-wide pass to
seal his victory.


Associated Press
Tony Stewart raises his arms after climbing the fence to the flag stand, in celebration of his win
in the NASCAR Pepsi 400 on Saturday.


"I thought the only way to
beat him was to get out in
front of him before he got to
the front," Earnhardt said.
"By the time that thought
even entered my mind, he
was already leading."
Stewart dropped back to
fifth after the final round of
pit stops with 16 laps to go.
But he reclaimed it one lap
later with the most daring
of moves: He tucked in next
to the wall and slid on the
outside past Matt Kenseth,
Kasey Kahne and Johnson,
who were all lined up door-
to-door across the track.
"I had a feeling that he


wasn't going to waste much
time," said crew chief Greg
Zipadelli. "That's one thing
that Tony's good at he
just goes for the opportuni-
ty. There was an opening,
he had a run."
Stewart's pass would
have been enough to seal
the victory, if not for one
last caution. The race
restarted with nine laps to
go, and Stewart was never
challenged as he pulled
away.
That's when he settled on
his celebration, which sent
him to the top of the flag
stand to grab the checkered


flag. It was a nod to open-
wheel star Helio
Castroneves, who famously
celebrated his two
Indianapolis 500 victories
by climbing the fence at the
Brickyard.
"I'm way too old and too
fat to be doing that," he
said after. "But once I start-
ed, I was committed and I
wasn't going to let the fans
down. But I think I'm unof-
ficially the first guy that's
gone all the way to the op
and over and onto the flag
stand.
"So Castroneves has
some work to do now."

of the Tour de France cycling race, between Challans and Les
Essarts, western France.


Associated Press
LES ESSARTS, France -
Lance Armstrong stuck to the
main pack and stayed out of
danger Sunday, finishing in
63rd place during the second
stage of the Tour de France
that was won by Belgium's
Tom Boonen.
Armstrong, going for a
record seventh straight Tour
victory before he retires, fin-
ished in the same time as
Boonen and kept his grip on
second place in the overall
standings. American David
Zabriskie retained the yellow
jersey as the leader.
Armstrong resumed his
strong pace after delivering an
early blow to his rivals
Saturday with a second-place
finish in the opening time
trial.
"My legs were terrible,"
Armstrong joked. 'Actually, I
feel pretty good. I figure the
faster I pedal, the faster I can
retire."
Although Armstrong wasn't
looking to win the stage, he


felt nervous about it. Flat
stages favor sprinters, mean-
ing there is often a mad rush
to the finish in which riders
can be involved in a crash.
"Everybody's a bit nervous,
everybody's cracking a little
bit," Armstrong said. "These
finishes still scare me. I won't
miss them."
Boonen won the 112.5-mile
ride from Challans to Les
Essarts in 3 hours, 51 minutes,
31 seconds, just ahead of
Norway's Thor Hushovd, who
posted the same time.
Australians Robbie McEwen
and Stuart O'Grady were third
and fourth, also with the same
time.
"It was a sprint for the
strong riders, so it was an
advantage for me," Boonen
said. "It was not a problem."
Armstrong's main rival, Jan
Ullrich, failed to gain any
ground on Armstrong but his
19th-place finish was an
improvement on Saturday's
time trial.
Although the German is still
feeling the effects of crashing


through his the rear window of

Friday, Armstrong believes
Ullrich remains a serious
threat.
"I talked to him today,".
Armstrong said. "If you go into

According to Tour race rules,
if a rider falls with less than 3
kilometers (1.9 miles) left,
those in the main pack are

Wade's stardom

goes beyond the

basketball court

Associated Press

MIAMI Just two years
ago, Dwyane Wade was bor-
rowing money for his son's
diapers.
Owning a waterside home
was beyond the realm of fan-
tasy for someone who didn't
always have birthday and
Christmas presents as a kid.
Forget gifts there were
times as a youngster when
his family went without food.
Everything's so different
now for the Miami Heat
guard.
His 3,190-square-foot, six-
bedroom house, bought in
October 2003, already seems
too small; Wade wants to
upgrade because he, only
half kiddingly, says it cannot
hold all his shoes. The
Chrysler he drove was
replaced by a customized
Range Rover after Wade

Like his on-court numbers,

some believe he's just getting

"When I sit down and think
that all this has come in two
years, it's amazing," Wade
says. "It's crazy"
After just two NBA sea-
sons, Wade is one of basket-
ball's hottest commodities,
with his list of off-the-court
deals growing all the time.
This week, he flew to New
York for one of the lucrative
side jobs enhancing his $2.85
million Heat salary: A photo
shoot for Sean John, the pop-
ular clothing line founded by
hip-hop mogul Sean "P
Diddy" Combs. Billboards
and magazine ads with Wade
wearing the fall-winter col-
lection will be released
nationwide shortly.
Soon, he'll be off to
Vancouver to work on EA

the player to grace the cover.
From there, he'll hit Chicago

Oh, and he'll spend plenty
of hours this summer work-

"I could say it's a dream

Olympic bids move


into full swing


Associated Press

SINGAPORE British
Prime Minister Tony Blair
came to lobby for London.
Spain's Queen Sofia flew in to
make the case for Madrid.
New York Mayor Michael
Bloomberg arrived to stump
for the Big Apple. Dignitaries
from Paris and Moscow cam-
paigned frenetically in the lob-
bies, hallways and bars.
With three days before the
vote, on the host city for the
2012 Olympics, the campaign-
ing went into overdrive
Sunday and the five-ring
show will only get more
intense in the next two days
and final hours of the most
prestigious race in Olympic
bid history.
By all accounts, Paris
remains the city to beat in
Wednesday's secret ballot of
the International Olympic
Committee. London is regard-
ed as the main challenger, with
Madrid and New York as upset
hopefuls, and Moscow a long
shot.
"There is no reason to
believe that Paris is still not
perceived as the front-run-
ner," senior Australian IOC
member Kevan Gosper said.
"You have to put London next
to them... My bottom line is it's
still between those two, and I
think it's close.
"But in this organization,
we're great at delivering sur-
prises. You never know."
Blair was the first head of
government to arrive for the
final push, praising London's
"very, very strong bid." He and
his wife, Cherie, are expected
to meet with many IOC mem-
bers before leaving to host the
G-8 summit starting
Wednesday in Gleneagles,
Scotland.
"I'm here, in a way, to say
that it's a bid that's got the
enthusiastic support of the
British people, of all the polit-
ical parties and the govern-
ment," Blair said. "The coun-
try is right behind it.
"It will be a great games for
the athletes. It will leave a
legacy not just for sport in the
UK but for the Olympic move-
ment as well, and that's impor-
tant."
French President Jacques
Chirac who has clashed
with Blair over European
Union issues and the war in
Iraq is due to arrive
Tuesday to boost the Paris bid.
Chirac will take part in
Wednesday's final presenta-
tions to the IOC before leaving
for Scotland.
Queen Sofia arrived Sunday
and will be joined by Spanish
Prime Minister Jose Luis
Rodriguez Zapatero. Also due
in Singapore are Russian
Prime Minister Mikhail
Fradkov, U.S. Sen. Hillary
Rodham Clinton and a slew of
sports stars, including
Muhammad Ali, David
Beckham and Tony Parker.
The influx of politicians and
celebrities has raised ques-
tions about how far the boost-
ers can go in selling the bids.
While it's OK for Blair or other


leaders to take IOC members
to dinner, IOC ethics rules pro-
hibit "overt" public promo-
tional events, spokeswoman
Giselle Davies said.
"Let's not focus on celebri-
ties, let's concentrate on what
this is about, and that's the bid
file," she said.
Lobbying was in full swing
Sunday throughout the Raffles
Convention Center and adjoin-
ing hotels used by IOC mem-
bers, bid officials and the
media. IOC members began
trickling in from around the
world. About 100 delegates
will be voting Wednesday.
British Olympic Association
president and IOC member
Craig Reedie said as many as
30 members may not yet have
decided how they will vote.
Among the undecided mem-
bers is Australia's Phil Coles,
who said Wednesday's final 45-
minute presentations to the
IOC could be crucial.
"In the past, it was always
the feeling that the final pres-
entation was hardly likely to
win the bid but you could
always lose it on that," Coles
said. "Here, I think because of
the closeness of it, the presen-
tations might make a lot more
difference."
The IOC executive board
began meeting Sunday, and is
scheduled to consider New
York's revised Olympic stadi-
um plans Monday.
Last month, after New York
state officials rejected a pro-
posed $2 billion stadium on
Manhattan's West Side, the bid
team came up with an alterna-
tive stadium plan in Queens
for hosting the opening and
closing ceremonies, track and
field events and soccer.
The new 'plan has been
endorsed by the world govern-
ing bodies of soccer and track
and field, but still requires for-
mal approval by the IOC
board. There have been no
indications the proposals
won't be accepted.
Meanwhile, Paris and
London continued to pursue
campaigns of sharply different
styles. The French have been
more cautious and restrained,
while the British have been
more outspoken in talking up
their chances.
"I never considered we were
the favorites," Paris Mayor
Bertrand Delanoe said, chat-
ting with a small group of
reporters in his hotel suite. "I
know our chances are real. But
the others are also strong. I pre-
fer to focus on the performance
rather than the predictions."
Asked what his message for
the IOC was, Delanoe said:
"Paris needs the games. Paris
is ready Paris has Tamour des
jeux' (love of the games)."
London, led by former two-
time Olympic 1,500-meter
champion Sebastian Coe, held
two large news conferences to
promote its case as the hard-
charging finisher
"Our bid has had sizzle for
the last year," Coe said. "The
bid is commonly recognized as
the bid with momentum. We
are in very good shape."

The NFL held its ninth annual
rookie symposium this week in West
Palm Beach The four-day orientation
introduced the 2005 draft class to life
in the NFL before training camps
begin.
'This helps the rookies get off to a
good start with regard to the new
lifestyle they are about to enter," said
NFL vice president of player and
employee development Michael
Haynes, a Hall of Fame cornerback.
'The lessons learned at the rookie
symposium help players develop
personal and professional goals that
will sustain them during and beyond
their playing careers."
The agenda featured topics
including personal finance, life skills,
personal conduct, life as a rookie,
media policy, substances of abuse,
personal experiences, family issues,
player development, football opera-
tions, NFL security, success in the
NFL and life after football.

Not so fast
It is not so easy to get a quick
touchdown against the AFC East.
Since the start of the 2003 season,
the Buffalo Bills, New England
Patriots and New York Jets have
surrendered the fewest touchdowns
in the NFL on scoring drives of four
plays or less.
Each club has allowed only five
such touchdowns in the last two
years.
The Bills allowed an NFL-low one
touchdown on a drive of four plays
or less last season. The last team to
give up only one such touchdown in
a season was the 2001 Chicago
Bears.
,'We stress that we don't want to
give up any big plays early and that
we want to make offenses work to
get first downs," Bills defensive coor-
dinator Jerry Gray said. 'The longer
the opposing offense is on the field
and the more they have to work for
yards, the greater the chance that
they will make a mistake, which our
defense can capitalize on."

LEMONT, Ill. No way Jim
Furyk was letting go of this vic-

Tiger Woods.
After finishing second three
times this year, including a dev-
astating loss last weekend,
Furyk answered Woods' charge
with three straight birdies and
hung on to win the Western
Open on Sunday It was his first
victory since the 2003 Buick

After tapping in for a birdie,
Furyk took off his cap and
shook hands with third round
co-leader Ben Curtis. Furyk
then turned and pumped his
fists to the cheering crowd
before sharing a long hug with
caddie Fluff Cowan.
Furyk shot a 2-under 69, fin-
ishing the tournament at 14-
under 270. Woods (66) was two
strokes back at 272, though he
did go over the $50 million
mark for career earnings.
Curtis faltered in his attempt
to win for the first time since
the 2003 British Open, shooting
a 3-over 74. But he was still

finish since Royal St George's.

GLADSTONE, N.J. Marisa
Baena completed a surprising
run from 60th seed to first-time
LPGA Tour winner Sunday,
holding off South Korean rook-
ie Meena Lee 1-up in the HSBC
Women's World Match Play
Championship.
A year after seriously consid-
ering giving up tour play,
Baena beat six higher-seeded
opponents for the break-
through victory on Hamilton
Farm's hilly Highlands Course.
The 28-year-old Colombian
earned $500,000 for her first
victory in 152 career LPGA
Tour events and also received
a three-year tour exemption.
L "It has been a great week,"
Baena said. "I have no words."

Baena:,rallied to beat eighth-
,dseeded .Candie& Kung 2-up.
. Baena opened the- 64-player
. tournament with a victory over
fifth-seeded Natalie Gulbis
and also beat No. 37 Grace
Park, No. 21 Jennifer Rosales
and No. 29 Karrie Webb.
Baena closed out the 23-year-
old Lee with a conceded par on
the par-4 18th after rolling her
birdie try within 2 feet of the
cup.


Lee won the 15th and 16th
holes to pull within one and
halved the 17th to extend the
match. Lee made a 9-foot
birdie putt on the par-4 15th,
holed a 15-footer for par on the
par-4 16th and stayed alive
with a 10-foot par putt on the
par-3 17th.
They were even after seven
holes, with Baena winning the
par-4 first and fourth holes
with birdies and Lee taking the
par-3 third and par-4 sixth with
birdies.

Nationwide Tour in 1993, beat-
ing a then-24-year-old Chris
DiMarco in a playoff.
Sixteen players started the
final round within five shots of
the lead and the pack stayed


close for a while. Nine players
were tied at 10 under, two
strokes behind Streck through
seven holes.
That's when Streck ended a
run of pars with his first of four
birdies in the round. Streck,
who opened with a 9-under 62,
had just two bogeys in the tour-
nament, both in the second
round.
Ahern, who has one top-10
finish this year, was one stroke
behind Streck when he went to
the 18th tee. He pushed his
drive to the right near a bush on
the par-4 and couldn't get his
second shot to the green, the
first time all day he didn't reach
in regulation.
His chip from the front left
rough went well behind the
hole and he two-putted for his
only bogey in a round that had
seven birdies.
Ahern, playing three groups
ahead of Streck, tied Streck at
14 under with a 6-foot birdie
putt on the par-4 15th.
Streck took the lead for good
at the par-4 14th when he made
a 20-foot birdie putt to go 15
under. He kept the lead with a 7-
foot par putt on the par-3 16th
just minutes before Ahern's
closing bogey, then birdied the
par-5 17th.

PHILLIP ALDER
Newspaper Enterprise Assn.

Regular readers will know that
on July 4, 1776, after a certain sign-
ing ceremony, four of the signato-
ries repaired to a quiet room to
play a game remarkably similar to
present-day bridge. The first rub-
ber, for nine points, went to John
Adams and Thomas Jefferson. The
second rubber, worth 21 points,
was won by John Hancock and
Jefferson. This was the exciting
first deal of the third rubber.
Note South's takeout double.
Normally, he would have a hand
short in the opener's suit and long
in the other three suits. But with a
very strong hand, he could have
any distribution. After the respon-
der passes, the doubler's partner
(the advancer), unless bidding no-
trump, makes a simple bid in a suit
with 0-8 points, jumps in a suit
with 9-11 points, or cue-bids the
opener's suit with 12-plus points.
But what about North's three-dia-
mond double jump?
This shows a hand with a six- or
seven-card suit and some 4-7
points. South's leap to seven
hearts was optimistic, but he was
trying to recoup some of his losses.
West found the best lead, a.
trump (not that anything works
here).
Declarer could see one club

loser. But then he noticed that he
had three spades and dummy only
two. So South won the first trick in
his hand and played off his three
spade winners, discarding a club
from the board. Then he took the
club ace, ruffed his low club,
cashed the diamond ace and 'put
his remaining six higiftrumps face
up onto the table.
'And 150 honors, partner," said
Adams with a broad smile.
