Dennis pounds Panhandle


Impact less

than Ivan's

Associated Press

PENSACOLA Hurricane
Dennis roared quickly through
the Florida Panhandle and
Alabama coast Sunday with a
120-mph bluster of blinding
squalls and crashing waves,
but shellshocked residents
emerged to find far less dam-
age than when Ivan took near-
ly the same path 10 months
ago.
The tightly wound Dennis,
which had been a Category 4,
145-mph monster as it march-
ed up the Gulf of Mexico,
weakened just before it struck
less than 50 miles east of Ivan's
landfall. And despite downed
power lines and outages to
more than 200,000, early
reports indicated no deaths
and relatively modest structur-
al damage.
"We're really happy it was
compact and that it lasted only
so long," said Mike Decker,
who lost only some shingles
and a privacy fence at his
home near where the storm
came ashore. "It was more of a
show for the kids."
The storm indeed put on a
show as it blew ashore at 3:25
p.m. midway. between the
western Panhandle towns of
Pensacola Beach and Navarre
Beach.
White-capped waves spew-
ed four-story geysers over sea
walls. Sideways, blinding rain
mixed with seawater blew in
sheets, toppling roadside signs
for hotels and gas stations.
Waves offshore exceeded 30
feet, and in downtown Pensa-
cola, the gulf spilled over side-
walks eight blocks inland.
Boats broken loose and
bobbed like toys in the roiling
ocean.
"It sounds like the prover-
bial freight train," said Mari
Darr Welch, riding out the
storm at home in Fort Walton
Beach. "I stepped out on the
front porch and got slammed
against the house by a big
gust."
But Dennis, which was
responsible for at least 20
deaths in Caribbean, helped
those in its path by its relative-
ly small size and fast pace.
Hurricane-force winds
stretched only 40 miles from
the center, compared with 105
miles for Ivan, and it tore
* through at nearly 20 mph.
Rainfall was measured at 8

'Hoover' Boothe:


Man of adventure


NANCY KENNEDY

Chronicle

Although William "Hoover"
Boothe grew up poor, he lived a
rich life.
The father and stepfather of
nine, husband of Candace
Boothe and friend and hunting
buddy of the late Dessie Smith'
Prescott, Bill had everything a
man could want, and then
some. He was happiest with
either a fishing pole or a rifle
in his hand.
Bill Boothe, of Crystal River,
died July 2. He was 76.
"He had many names," said
Candace, his wife of 25 years.
"Most people called him Bill,
but his other names were
Daddy, Dad, Papa Bill, Pa,


Hoover and Carrot Man."
He was called Hoover by the
doctor who delivered him. It
was during Herbert Hoover's
day and to indicate that the
baby was a boy, the doctor
announced, "We got a little
Hoover here."
He was called Carrot Man by
the people at the horse farms
and at the Hits Horse Show in
Ocala. As a carrot vendor, Bill
would go up to Georgia and
load up on carrots, then make
his deliveries.
Sherri and Buck McCul-
lough, who worked for the
Boothes and also Prescott,
called him Old Bear and Boss

Nelson outpaces



even himself


Associated Press


NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
Willie Nelson is so prolific
that sometimes even he for-
gets he has another record
coming out.
At a recent Nashville show
with Bob Dylan, Nelson per-
formed a long list of hits, but
not a single song from his new
long-awaited reggae album.
"I keep for-

getting,"o
Nelson said a
few days later
by telephone
from the road,
which he's
called home
for most of the
last 30 years.
"The set is so Willie
short." Nelson
Nelson's reg-
gae album, "Countryman," is
due out Tuesday, and, at least
sporadically, he's been work-
ing some of the songs into his
shows.
At 72, Nelson continues to
record and perform at a break-'
neck pace. He believes his best
record is still ahead of him.
"I feel like we're doing one


now that's going to be better
than anything else we've ever
done," he said.

Brooke back as Roxie
NEW YORK Brooke
Shields is coming back to
Broadway to play Roxie Hart
in the long-running revival of
"Chicago."
Shields, currently starring
in the London production of
the Kander and Ebb musical,
joins the New York company
Sept 6 at the Ambassador
Theatre. The show is in its
ninth year on Broadway.
Shields also has appeared
on Broadway as Rizzo in the
revival of "Grease!" and as
Sally Bowles in "Cabaret."

McKnight to perform
DETROIT R&B artist
Brian McKnight will perform
the national anthem before
the All-Star game at Comerica
Park on Tuesday.
The Canadian All-Star
Choir, a combination of three
choirs from Windsor, Ontario,
located across the Detroit
River from the city, will per-
form the Canadian national


anthem before the game.
Members of the Grammy-
winning Winans gospel family
will join McKnight to perform
"God Bless America" during
the seventh-inning stretch,
organizers said Saturday

Way gets vertical
LOS ANGELES Skate-
boarder Danny Way rolled
down a massive ramp at near-
ly 50 mph and jumped across
the Great Wall of China on
Saturday, becoming the first
person to clear the wall with-
out motorized aid.
Way botched the landing on
his first attempt but then suc-


released the film, had expected a debut
"in the high 30s," said Bruce Snyder, the
studio's head of distribution.
Based on the Marvel Comics series that
debuted in the early 1960s, "Fantastic
Four" stars loan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba,
Michael Chiklis and Chris Evans as astro-
nauts who gain superpowers after expo-
sure to a cosmic storm. If Sunday's esti-
mate holds, it would come in ahead of the
opening weekend of fellow Marvel adap-
tation "X-Men," which debuted in 2000
with $54.5 million. Marvel's first "Spider-
Man" movie had a record opening week-
end of $114.8 million in 2002.
Unlike the well-reviewed "Spider-Man"
and "X-Men" films, "Fantastic Four" over-
came a.drubbing by critics, with some call-
ing it a lightweight tale with a sitcom tone.
While Hollywood appeared to have
ended its downturn of 19-straight week-
ends, movie revenues remain in the dol-
drums. Revenues this year are running 7
percent behind last year's, and factoring
in higher ticket prices, admissions are off
10 percent.


cessfully completed the jump
across the 61-foot gap four
times, adding 360 degree spins
on his last three tries, accord-
ing to sponsor Quiksilver Inc.
"I was aware of the dangers
and my heart was pumping in
my chest the whole time, but I
managed to pull it off with the
help of my team, and I'm hon-
ored to have my visions
embraced by the people of
China," Way said.
Several thousand people,
including China's ministers of
extreme sports and culture,
gathered at the Ju Yong Guan
Gate, about a 40-minute drive
from Beijing.


LOS ANGELES The latest superhero
movie may have been just fantastic
enough to snap Hollywood's longest mod-
ern losing streak at the box office.
The comic-book adaptation "Fantastic
Four" raked in $56 million during its first
three days, apparently helping to end a
swoon in which domestic movie revenues
34 had been down 19 weekends in a row com-
pared to last year's.
The top 12 films took in $141. million, up
2.25 percent from the same weekend in
2004, according to industry estimates
30 Sunday. Numbers often drop slightly when
76.67 studios release final figures Monday, but
this past weekend still should come in
ahead of last year's, said Paul
Dergarabedian, president of box-office
million tracker Exhibitor Relations.
7.50 "It took four superheroes to end this
slump, and Hollywood is grateful,"
Dergarabedian said. "Comic-book movies,
if properly marketed, are exactly what
mainstream audiences want to see in their

Associated Press
Florida Department of Law En-
forcement analyst Eva Rhody uses
the Matrix system to research crimi-
nal cases July 6 in Tallahassee.
Florida, Ohio, Connecticut and
Pennsylvania use software that lets
investigators quickly cull through
much of the data about people that
reside in cyberspace.


Matrix: Too useful to give up?


ment officials working with a one-time
drug-running pilot-turned-millionaire
computer whiz named Hank Asher, it
was conceived as a way for states to
combine data they have on people -
driving records and criminal histo-
ries, for example with similar
records from other states.
The company that Asher founded
but no longer works for, Seisint Inc.,
also added to Matrix information gath-
ered in the private sector, including
some of what credit card companies
collect, such as names, addresses and
Social Security numbers though
actual credit histories were not
included.
Together, the program would give
states a powerful tool that could link
someone to several addresses or vehi-
cles, and possibly to other people who
lived at those same houses or drove
the same car.
Those links could help thwart ter-
rorism or solve crimes in which wit-
nesses could provide only partial
information, like half of a license
plate and the make of a car. The tech-


nology is credited in part with helping
police crack the Washington, D.C.,
sniper case in 2002.
Matrix impressed federal officials
enough that the program was seeded
with $12 million from the Depart-
ments of Justice and Homeland
Security. Thirteen states eventually
signed ,on or expressed interest in
feeding their data into the system, rep-
resenting half the U.S. population.
Several states pulled out, partly
because of concerns about the cost or
laws governing the transfer of data out
of state. California's attorney general
decided Matrix "offends fundamental
rights of privacy"
Those objections were nothing com-
pared to the criticism Matrix encoun-
tered from the right and the left,
including from the American Civil
Liberties Union.
"It is essentially an electronic file
on everyone whether they are sus-
pected of criminal activity or not,"
said Howard Simon, executive direc-
tor of the ACLU in Florida. "I can't
think of anything more un-American."


Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE When the federal
government in April stopped funding a
database that lets police quickly see
public records and commercially col-
lected information about Americans,
privacy advocates celebrated what
they saw as a victory against overzeal-
ousness in the fight against terrorism.
But a few states are pressing for-
ward with a similar system, continu-
ing to look for ways to quickly search
through a trove of data from dri-
ver's license photos to phone numbers
to information about people's cars.
Their argument in seeking to keep the
Matrix database alive in some form:
It's too important for solving crimes to
give up.
Florida, Ohio, Connecticut and
Pennsylvania still use software that
lets investigators quickly cull through
much of the data about people that
reside in cyberspace. However, with-


out the federal grant for the Matrix
data-sharing system, they won't be
routinely searching through digital
files from other states at least for
now.
Privacy advocates still don't like the
idea, saying government shouldn't
have easy access to so much informa-
tion about people who haven't done
anything wrong.
But law officers bent on keeping the
Matrix alive say the information is
already out there anyway for compa-
nies to use for less noble purposes.
Law enforcement has always used
such information; it just never had a
big computer search tool to quickly
find links between people and places.
Matrix the ominous name is
shorthand for Multistate Anti-
Terrorism Information Exchange -
was born as an anti-terrorism tool in
the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist
attacks.

Heather Scull tries to enjoy her first look at the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday at the nearly deserted Fort Island Gulf Beach in Crystal
River. A New Jersey transplant, Scull and her family moved to Levy County four months ago and decided to take their first trip
to the Gulf before Hurricane Dennis became a possible threat. "When they said hurricane I was ready to go, New Jersey is only
19 hours," she said. But her family decided to hit the beach when they found out the storm was bypassing the area. "It's just

Man arrested after parking lot tussle


AMY SHANNON

Chronicle
A classic parking tiff turned
ugly Sunday evening, ending
with sheriff's deputies arrest-
ing an Inverness man they said
got out of his vehicle and
shoved another man in a
Publix parking lot.
Allen Monteferante, 65, 6797
E. Anna Jo Drive, told sheriff's
deputies the verbal argument
began after a man honked and
yelled obscenities at him after


he pulled out of a parking spot,
according to an arrest report.
The man who got shoved told
deputies Monteferante's vehi-
cle nearly hit his vehicle as
Monteferante was attempting
to pull out of a parking spot and
he was pulling into the parking
lot, according to the report.
The man said he started to
honk his horn to get
Monteferante's attention. He
said Monteferante stopped so
he could pass. After the man
parked, he said, he yelled at
Monteferante as he drove by,
according to the report.


At that point, Monteferante
jumped out of his vehicle and
began to argue with the other
man, according to the report.
The man said Monteferante
used both of his hands to shove
him in the chest causing him to
fall backward a feW steps.
The man said Monteferante
threatened to kill him, and
then walked back to his vehi-
cle, opened up its trunk and
reached for an unknown item,
according to the report.
Monteferante's girlfriend
then grabbed Monteferante,
pushed him into the passenger


seat, and they fled.
The man, who got shoved,
along with some witnesses,
gave deputies a description of
Monteferante, his vehicle and
his girlfriend, according to the
report Deputies met up with
Monteferante at his home,.
where he admitted to pushing'
the man, but denied threaten-
ing him and pushing him hard
enough to fall, according to the
report
Monteferante was arrested
on a battery charge. He was
released later Sunday on a
$500 bond.

ner in the company said the
wire was put up to stop the ram-
pant illegal dumping and party-
ing that has been going on for
years in the undeveloped subdi-
vision, and to contain cattle that
are being run on the big pastures
of the property under an agricul-
tural exemption until the lots
can be developed.
County Development Services
Director Gary Maidhof acknowl-
edged this past week that, after a
series of meetings, Marpad has
agreed to apply for an after-the-
fact conditional-use permit and
a right of way utilization for the
barbed wire and cattle on the
property He said the applica-
tions came in Friday.
The original developer never
built roads and had deeded the
road rights of way to the county.
Maidhof said the county and
Marpad also agreed about a spe-
cial assessment district for pay-.
ing for construction of the roads.
The district will be created
and presented to the county
commission for approval. It is
anticipated that a $143,600 bond
forfeited to the county by the
original developer in 1976 will

be applied to the cost of building
the roads, but that has not yet
been formally agreed.
The county has said it did take
the money, but, other than it
being put into the road and
bridge fund, there is no indica-
tion what it was used for at the
time. The company has said it's
only right to put the .money
toward the roads.
Because of the width of the
rights of way, Maidhof said, curb
and gutter street designs will
have to be used, which are more
expensive. Once the special
assessment district is approved
and the streets designed and
engineered, the cost of the
assessments for lot owners will
be determined.
The county also will supply
water to the project The original
lots had been less than a half-
acre, which would have disal-
lowed septic tanks by today's
standards, but Marpad replatted
the subdivision so the lots can
utilize septic.
The development covers a few
hundred acres on the east side of
the north half of Independence
Highway, just west of Inverness.
Marpad owns about 485 of the
600 lots in the development, an
area of pastures and woods.
The company is finishing four
of its five models on Arlington


Street Van Der Valk Construc-
tion is building the homes. Van
Der Valk interests include the
Lakeside development on the
other side of U.S. 41, and the new
Tradewinds development on the
Homosassa River, as well as
other interests in the state.
The three- and four-bedroom
homes in Inverness Village run
from 1,447 to 2,553 square feet,
and will range in price from
around $200,000 to $400,000,
Adams said. He expects models
to be open around Aug. 1. The
houses come standard with
characteristic red tile roofs.
Adams said the lots are selling
so well and the interest in the
homes so intense, that the com-
pany has had to slow down to
catch up, though with the agree-.
ment with the county, things can
now go forward.
In addition to the problem
with the fencing and cows, the
county had cited Marpad for
clearing trees without a permit
Adams said there was no clear-

cutting, and the trees cut were
part of a selective logging opera-
tion. He and Maidhof felt the
conditional use permit would
agreeably address that issue.
As to a $24,000 fine the compa-
ny could face as a result of being
out of compliance on the fence
and rights of way issues, Maidhof
said the company could show
the Code Enforcement Board a
conditional use permit and ask
for forgiveness. The matter
would be up to the board, but he
said the board usually strives for
compliance rather than punitive
measures when possible.
Adams said the agreements
with the county were a win for
everyone because the chronic
dumping in the area has been
stopped and now the county will
get a high-quality subdivision,
which will add significantly to its
tax base. It also will get many
new water customers.
"I think it can be a good part-
nership with the county," he
said.

inches, rather than the expect-
ed foot.
"With Ivan, the damage area
was probably more spread out
and wider than it was for
Dennis," National Hurricane
Center meteorologist Michelle
Mainelli said.
Ivan, which had identical top
winds of 120 mph, killed 29
people in the Panhandle and
caused more than $7 billion
damage in the Southeast.
Mindful of the experience,

"I jumped up from my
couch," Turner said. "It just
woke me right up."
Concerned but fascinated,
Turner peered outside to see
the halves of two of her neigh-
bor's 50-foot oak trees sheared
across her front lawn on East
Arbor Street.
"They twisted right off,"
Turner said. "It was quite
nasty."
Turner and her husband,
John, moved to Inverness from
Massachusetts in the midst of
Tropical Storm Jeanne in
September 2004, and knew to
expect something out of
Hurricane Dennis, but not this.
"I'm waiting to see the fate of,
my palm tree," Turner said
about her favorite tree, now,
partially crushed by the large
oak. "We bought our home
because of allthe the trees. We
hate to see them toppling."


coastal residents fled in
advance of Dennis, leaving
streets in Pensacola Beach,
Fort Walton Beach and Gulf
Shores nearly deserted.
Even Mark Sigler of Pensa-
cola Beach, who owns a dome-
shaped, steel-reinforced house
built to withstand 200-mph
winds, decided to evacuate.
"The house is hurricane-
resistant," he said, "not hurri-
cane-proof."
But hours after Dennis' land-
fall, Florida emergency opera-
tions officials said they had no
reports of storm-related
deaths. In Alabama, Gulf
Shores and Orange Beach offi-

The Turners are not alone in
their tree tumbling woes.
Citrus County Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman Gail
Tierney said the agency
received numerous reports of
downed trees Saturday after
the gut of Hurricane Dennis
missed the Gulf Coast, but
delivered arms of rain and
wind.
National Hurricane Center
forecasters said the Weakened
Category 3 hurricane's eye
came ashore at 3:25 p.m.
Sunday about halfway between
the Santa Rosa Island towns of
Navarre Beach and Pensacola
Beach. The hurricane brought
120-mph winds and torrential
rain to the panhandle still
recovering from last year's dev-
astation of Hurricane Ivan.
Locally, Citrus County
received wind gusts of up to 50
to 60 mph on Saturday and
between 4 to 6 inches of rain
throughout the weekend,
according to National Weather
Service meteorologist Rick
Davis.


cials said they had no reports
of significant damage.
A scan of the area between
Navarre Beach and Pensacola
Beach showed relatively little
damage, with the expected
ripped-apart gas station awn-
ings and overturned sheds but
few downed power lines and
trees.
The normally placid blue
Gulf was still churned into a
tea-colored froth, but few
homes, even along the shore,
appeared to have sustained
extensive flooding. Neighbor-
hoods along the Gulf showed
only intermittent debris. The

Davis said multiple tornado
watches and a warning were
issued Saturday afternoon and
Sunday morning in parts of the
county, including areas south-
west of Inverness.
At 2:40 p.m. Saturday, a sher-
iff's deputy reported seeing a
tornado moving west along
County Road 486 about three
miles north of Lecanto, Davis
said. Soon after, another
deputy reported damage
caused by a tornado just east of
Crystal River near County
Road 486, he said.
Later that same day,
Inverness resident Jean Moore
returned to her Inverness
home from Wal-Mart to find a
large oak tree fallen across her
property.
"It went right over the chain-
link fence," the Penrow Street


roofs along U.S. 98 had blue
tarps on them, and appeared to
be left over damage from last
year's hurricane Ivan.
Escambia County Commis-
siorner Mike Whitehead said
initial reports indicate some
broken windows, trees and
power lines down, minor flood-
ing in downtown Pensacola
and a few trees falling on hous-
es.
"Because of where it went in,
we missed a real close shot. It
went into a relatively unpopu-
lated area," Whitehead said.
"If that thing had shifted 20
miles to the west, we'd have
been in trouble, but we got real

resident said. "It hit a neigh-
bor's fence. I'm glad I wasn't
home."
Moore spent Sunday arrang-
ing to have the tree removed
and the gaping hole where its
roots were uprooted filled in,
so a neighboring oak tree does-
n't blow down, too.
Crystal River resident Paula
Smith became all too familiar
with uprooted trees Saturday
night when she awoke to hear a
70-foot gum tree collapsing on
her home on Hiawatha
Terrace.
"I had gone to sleep after a
grueling day of preparing for
the hurricane that never
came," Smith said. "My hus-
band said it sounded like a
bomb.
"I went to the front porch
and didn't see anything, so we


lucky."
In Alabama's coastal
Baldwin County, which was
ground zero for Ivan last year,
officials also breathed a sigh of
relief.
"We dodged a bullet," said
emergency management direc-
tor Leigh Anne Ryals, whose
pastor husband led a prayer at
a news conference hours
before the storm.
The biggest problem was
power outages, which affected
more than 140,000 homes and
businesses in Florida, mostly
in the Panhandle, and 80,000 in
coastal Alabama. Gulf Power
Co., the main power utility for

went around to the back. We
were about to turn on the porch
light and there it was, staring
me in the face. Now we have a
skylight."
Smith said she thinks the
large amount of precipitation
is what caused her neighbor's
tree to uproot, causing damage
to the porch screen and other
structure.
Sunday evening, sheriff's
emergency officials fielded
reports of flooding in flood-
prone areas on the west side of
the county, particularly Ozello
Trail and at the end of Fort
Island Trail.

customers should be prepared
to do without electricity for
three weeks or more.
Dennis became the fifth hur-
ricane to strike Florida in less
than 11 months, and President
Bush soon declared the state a
major federal disaster along
with Alabama and Mississippi.
By 7 p.m., Dennis was in
southwest Alabama and its
dropped to a Category 1, 80-
mph hurricane. As it moved
inland the hurricane's next-
biggest threat tornadoes -
took over. Tornado watches and
warnings were posted as far
north as Atlanta.

Sunday night as high tide
passed.
Sandbag locations reopened
Sunday afternoon at 7490 Gulf-
to-Lake Highway, 4508 Grand
March Ave. and the Crystal
River Fire Station off of U.S.
19, although Tierney said it was
unlikely they'd be open today.
Progress Energy representa-
tive Aaron Perlut said the com-
pany, which serves 43,306 cus-
tomers in Citrus County,
recorded 7,200 outages
between midnight Friday and
early Sunday. By 7 a.m. Sunday,
most outages had been
restored, Perlut said.
Anyone with questions or

Linda Cullen, broker associate at Coldwell Banker Residential Real
Estate, stands outside a home July 6 in Royal Palm Beach. Prices
in the West Palm Beach market have soared to the ninth-highest

rageous, including San Francisco, New York, Boston and

cent to $291,000.
Real estate experts warn
that housing prices are far out-
pacing the incomes of most
workers. In Florida, the medi-
an family income of $43,982 fell
26 percent short of the amount
needed to finance an average
home in 2004, according to a
study by the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corp. The gap is
even larger in Nevada, Hawaii,
Washington, D.C., Maryland
and Rhode Island.
And in California, the situa-
tion has long been the worst:
Only 17 percent of households
could afford a home with a
median price tag in April,
according to the California
Association of Realtors.
By May, the median home
price in California climbed to
$522,590 more than double
the price in Florida and other
states. To buy the typical home
with monthly payments of
$3,067, a California family
would need to earn about
$122,700 to qualify for a con-
ventional loan.

many areas cannot get a loan
for any home on the market.
"It's really, really tough for
the first-time buyer The only
way to just get in the door is to
take advantage of the low-inter-
est rates and the riskier mort-
gage instruments like the inter-
est-only loans," said Leslie
Appleton-Young, the chief econ-
omist for the California
Association of Realtors.
In Florida, Kim said she
feels the skyrocketing housing
prices have left her and many
others behind, and that they
have no chance of catching up.
When she received her job
offer, she and her husband

ing at pictures of bungalows

imagined their three young
children would play. But since


they moved into the apartment,
they have not even tried to look
at any homes for sale.

house. Once you have the first
house, it's easier to move up to
a bigger house," said Kim, an
assistant professor of political
science at Florida Atlantic
University in nearby Boca
Raton.
Much of the disappointment
for Kim and others new to
Florida came from a decades-
old belief that the Sunshine
State was an affordable retire-
ment destination, particularly
compared to other warm-
weather destinations like
California or Hawaii.
That idea might stem from
the 1960s land boom when
developers sold small lots of
former swampland for $10
down and $10 a month. But as
demand multiplied, housing
prices followed. Florida's
ample coastlines, international
culture and recreational
opportunities now draw 1,000
new residents a day. Many are
willing to pay prices on par
with those in California and
other large cities.
"There are people in other
sections of the country that
think Florida is the holy grail
in terms of weather and
lifestyle," said Linda Cullen, a
broker associate at Coldwell
Banker Residential Real
Estate here.
The high prices are not only
catching buyers by surprise.
Those who are selling their
homes at the height of the
boom are reaping an unexpect-
ed cushion for retirement ,or
investment.

Paying it forward
HOLLAND, Mich. Their mis-
sions are vastly different, but Gay
Bos feels the same gratitude
toward the troops in Iraq that she
had when American GIs liberated
her small town in the Netherlands
during World War II.
Now 75, she is showing her
appreciation by baking cookies and
sending them to soldiers abroad -
at least 148 dozen since
December, including the eight
dozen fruit-and-nut cookies she
made Monday morning.
"I'm doing something for my lib-
erators' grandchildren," said Bos, a
retired bank employee and seam-
stress who came to the United
States in 1948. "I'm a very grateful
immigrant. I wanted to do some-
thing in return for what I have in
this country, for what we all have in
this country."
Bos got the idea after seeing a
newspaper photo of a friend's son
who had returned on leave from
Iraq. After learning he had to return
to the war in two weeks, she decid-
ed to send him cookies.
"I knew there were many more
boys out there, so I started asking
around at church," Bos said. She
also collected names of strangers
given to her by friends from her
Monday night Bible study.
Included in the packages of
cookies is money for the soldiers to
call home. "I tell them they don't
have to call me, but they better call
their mothers and their wives," Bos
said.

head out the car window any more
if an 11-year-old boy gets his wish.
Marc McCann came up with the
idea of ensuring that dogs are
restrained while in cars as part of
state Rep. Tom Stevenson's annual
"There Ought to be a Law" contest.
Stevenson submitted a bill to the
House Transportation Committee in
June that would require drivers to
keep their dogs' heads inside the
vehicle at all times. Stevenson also
wants animals restrained, either
with some kind of modified seat
belt or in a crate or carrier box.
"I never did like dogs sticking
their heads out the window," said
McCann, one of more than 500
students from his legislative district
who proposed laws. "Maybe a sign
might have been too close to the
road and they'd get hit. Maybe
they'd jump out the window on a
highway."
Stevenson said the bill will pro-
tect "not only human lives, but pet
lives. I think it's going to be a great
idea because it's going to cut down
on driver distractions."
Sweet revenge
RALEIGH, N.C. When Jackie
L. Eley's pickup truck was repos-
sessed, more than just her ride
was taken away. The 130 water-
melons in the truck bed also were
repossessed.
Revenge, though, has been


sweet.
The state Court of Appeals has
ruled that the repo firm, Mid-East
Acceptance Corp., must pay Eley
$1,365 three times the melons'
value, as well as legal fees.
Eley's truck was repossessed
July 29, 2002, a day when the tem-
perature would reach 98 degrees
with 89 percent humidity. She had
missed two payments.
The men refused to let her
unload the produce. And their boss
refused to let Eley retrieve her mel-
ons later that day from the yard.
Two days later, the company
had second thoughts.
"The watermelons are rotting,
and the smell is polluting the stor-
age lot," the company wrote to
Eley, demanding that she take her
melons or pay the cost of removing
them.
Eley refused.
As she testified, "The melons
were spoiled. They wouldn't do me
any good. They took the truck, they
took the melons. They were their
melons then."
Drag bandit
COLUMBIA, S.C. It didn't
take long for deputies to realize
they had the right man in a bank
robbery. The black dress with red
flowers, red straw hat and little
black mustache gave him away.

Learn to build for bluebirds


CCESprogram workshop

slated for July 26

Special to the Chronicle

The Florida Yards and Neighborhoods pro-
gram as part of the Citrus County Extension
Service is pleased to announce the next
"Bluebird House Workshop," will be from 6 to 8
p.m. Tuesday, July 26.
he workshop will be at the Citrus County
Canning Center at 3405 W. Southern St.,


Lecanto, which is off County Road 491 just north
of State Road 44. The cost of the workshop is $8,
and includes all materials needed for the work-
shop. For registration, call 726-2141.
The deadline for registration is Tuesday, July
19. The workshop will be based on one of the
nine principles of the Florida Yards &
Neighborhoods (FY&N) program.
Come join us and learn what makes a soft,
cup-like nest out of grasses and pine needles.
Most often they nest in March through July
They keep their same mate. Their natural habi-
tat can be meadows, fields, open pine woods,
parklands, cemeteries and even golf courses.
Their population has decreased because of


loss of habitat and competition from other
species.
They eat mostly insects, but like some seeds
and berries. At times blowflies, ants and para-
sites invade their nests.
Participants will build a house for bluebirds
to nest in and learn where to install it for the
best advantage of this fine-feathered friend.
Programs and activities offered by the
Extension Service are available to all persons
without regard to race, color, handicap, sex, reli-
gion, or national origin.
For persons with disabilities requiring spe-
cial accommodations, contact our office at least
five working days prior to the program so that


proper consideration may be given to the
request.
Our phone number is (325) 726-2141. For the
hearing impaired, contact the Florida Relay
Center Service at (800) 955-8771.
The FY&N program of the Citrus County
Extension Service is a public education and out-
reach program of the University of Florida,
funded jointly by the Citrus County Board of
County Commissioners, Department of
Environmental Protection and the Southwest
Florida Water Management District.
The Program is a "Florida-friendly" approach
to an attractive, healthy landscape that helps to
sustain our environment.

Man.
"We loved him very much,"
Sherri said.
Along with his many names,
Bill had many jobs. He was
mostly a peddler batteries,
produce, you name it, he'd sell
it to you. Folks who knew him
said he could sell a refrigerator
to an Eskimo.
"If he saw a car for sale on
the side of the road well, he
was a 'U-turn' man," Candace
said. "He was always looking
for a bargain, and he could
make money, too."
Although Bill lived much of
his life in Florida, he never for-
got his poor West Virginia
roots, which forged his strong
character.
"He was a man of integrity,"
Candace said. He wasted noth-
ing and taught that to all his
children. If it's on your plate,
you eat it, he would say. Keep it
simple. Let's get it done.
"At the end of every conver-
sation, he'd always say he was
proud of you," recalled stepson
Scott Newell. "He was the only
dad I knew."

Candace shared with Dessie
Smith Prescott.
Currently, the house and
property are being considered
as a historical site and educa-
tional center for freshwater
boating and hunting for stu-
dents, which is something Bill
wanted to see happen,
Candace said.
"Growing up with him was
like growing up in the old
days," said his oldest son, Bill


Boothe Jr. "You didn't stand
around with your hands in your
pockets."
He was disciplined. He read
his Bible every night, loved the
gospel of John, chapter 15. He
was modest, conservative,
proper but, boy, did he love
to have fun! Like the time
shortly after he and Candace
had gotten married and he had
cooked up a big pot of squirrel
stew he loved squirrel gravy.
However, he had told Candace
he was making chicken and
dumplings.
The rest of the family all
knew what was in the pot on
the stove. They had sat down
and had a great meal together
when Candace, who had
worked late, came in. As she
scooped up a spoonful of

Is there a lesson



10 years later?


As recently reviewed in a
10-year retrospective in
the Chronicle, the overall
effects of the Florida net ban
are still undetermined, which is
unfortunate.
The prime promulgator of the
ban, Karl Wickstrom publish-
er of Florida Sportsman maga-
zine believes the results of the
ban have been spectacular. He
said the effect on black mullet
recovery is an example.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute has pointed
out, however, that the increase
in that population is not entirely
the result of the net
ban and is at least
in part the result of THE I1
changes in commer- The rn
cial fishing regula-
tions that began in OUR OF
the 1980s, although
the ban did acceler- Objective
ate the recovery. I nee
Ironically, the
most documented -data on the
effects of the ban are concerning
the financial hardship on the
fishermen who used the gill nets
that were outlawed in 1995.
i What happened in the fishery
is less understood. Events in the
state's economy and in the natu-
ral environment, plus the chang-
ing marine resource regulatory
process and increasing recre-
ational fishing pressures, have
all affected the fishery.
In short, there are many vari-
ables and the results of the ban
on various segments of the fish-
ery are mixed, and so opinions
on the effects depend on who is
speaking. While data seems to
show fewer turtle deaths, for
instance, the sea trout popula-
tion in Southwest Florida has
stayed fairly steady. Is that
because of the increasing pres-
sure of recreational fishing or
other reasons? We don't know.
Some ask the nagging ques-
tion, "Did we just move fish from


Parrot manners S 0l
The person who called in
about all service dogs
being allowed inside stores
didn't understand what
was meant by the call
about the parrot allowed in J
a grocery store. A parrot
and a dog are two com- cAL
pletely different creatures.
Dogs wouldn't do their 563-
poop while sitting on your
lap or shoulder. They'd
bark to go outside. A parrot would
defecate anytime, anyplace, espe-
cially around the unwrapped foods.
They also aren't used as a service
bird. Read the paragraph again. It
was complaining about the parrot's
poop going on our food.
Watch the road
In Tuesday's (July 5) paper, "The
speed limit's too low." The man who
wrote in that article, or lady, that
says 45 and 55 mph is too low
coming into Citrus County, is way
off. It is not a speed trap. Speed
traps are when they go from 55 to
25, like they do on (U.S.) 301. When
you enter the county where there's
sidewalks, you go from 55 to 45
because there's pedestrians walking
and there are houses. This man
says now he can't watch the road
and the speedometer both, so he
watches the speedometer because
the police are giving tickets.
If he can't watch both, he better
give up his license. Because the
police are there and they're sup-
posed to give tickets when you


commercial yield to recreational
yield?" Do smaller net openings
mandated to keep larger fish
from being entangled in the nets
catch younger fish that weren't
caught before, affecting the
stocks? There are a lot of unan-
swered questions.
The problem is that the data is
not sufficient to make a defini-
tive judgment on the overall
effect. And that was part of the
problem in the original propos-
al. It was not based on enough
science. It was a political deci-
sion pushed and financed by
recreational fishing interests
and backed by con-
servation groups
SSUE: with good environ-
't ban. mental intentions,
which acted to give
PINION: the movement a lot
of clout with well-
analysis meaning voters who
ded. really didn't have
enough scientific
data to make an informed deci-
sion.
But like a lingering bad taste,
the question remains: is the fish-
ery as a whole better off? Who
knows? Reducing pressure on it
by reducing some commercial
yield might lead one think so,
but 10 years later, the reality is
that we can't definitively say
that's so.
The lesson here is that con-
ducting fishery management by
ballot initiative or any other
environmental management by
ballot initiative is probably
not a good idea, no matter how
altruistic it seems. Fishery man-
agement should be based on
comprehensive scientific evalu-
ation. But that evaluation has to
be based on comprehensive
data. That was not the case when
the net ban was made law.
Today, looking back, it sure
would be nice to at least now
have comprehensive data on the
effects of the ban.

I was just wondering. I haven't
seen any hurricane charts in the
papers lately. Now we've got four so
far this month. Are they going to
come out with some hurricane
charts so we can track them?
Biased sentence
Well, I was absolutely right. The
judge gives the schoolteacher in
Inverness a special privilege. She
only got three years for her sexual
molestation of teenagers, the judge
ruled, because the boys were willing
participants. I've seen men come in
front of these courts and the girls
were willing participants and they
got the book thrown at them. After
Jessica (Lunsford), haven't we
learned that we have to get these
animals off the streets forever and
quit worrying about if they're
women or men? Let's get these sex-
ual predators and put in jail where
they belong. -

she had it. right when she
sided with the majority this
year in ruling that it's uncon-
stitutional to put a framed
,... copy of the Ten Command-
ments on a courthouse wall.
Yet I think she could hardly
have been more wrong than
when she joined the majori-
ty in rejecting a 1987 chal-
lenge to the death penalty on
d Pitts grounds of racial discrimi-
nation.
But again, the point isn't
an individual vote. It is,
rather, the sense one gets in
her body of votes that there's a mind at
work here. That her decisions were
based not simply on ideology, but also
on intellect.
O'Connor was named to the court by
the conservative icon, Ronald Reagan.
She herself is usually described as a
moderate conservative, a term that has
grown oxymoronic through the years.
But even putting that aside, I question
the word "moderate," implying as it does
a lack of passion or conviction. I prefer
to regard O'Connor as a conservative
with an independent mind. And I'd
argue that we could use a few more inde-
pendent minds of whatever ideology.
Maybe then, we could have less of
the nasty shouting match that passes
for political dialogue in this country.
Maybe then there would be less
emphasis on winning the argument
and more on solving the problem.
Maybe then, judgment would be less
situational and people more willing to


S o now we say goodbye
to Sandra Day ,
O'Connor. -
In the process, we say
goodbye to the one justice
on the Supreme Court who
did not belong body and I
soul to either the liberal or N
conservative wings, who
could not be considered in
the pocket of either politi-
cal extreme. In other Leonar
words, she was willing to
listen to the facts before
making up her mind, as
opposed to the other way
around. Imagine that.
As a result, her votes hacked off con-
servatives, vexed liberals and not
coincidentally, gave encouragement
to those of us who find those labels ...
constraining.
In a 2004 profile, Washington Post
reporter Charles Lane said all this in
an elegant phrase that has been echo-
ing in my head ever since. O'Connor,
he wrote, is possessed of a "persuad-
-able mind."
I suspect the phrase made an impact
upon me simply because one does not
encounter persuadable minds that
often these days not in courtrooms,
not in Congress, not in the White
House, not at the water cooler down
the hall. Minds these days are made up
like a drill sergeant's bed. They are
impervious to inconvenient or contra-
dictory information.
It's not that I have always agreed with
Justice O'Connor's votes. Yes, I think


Sto the Editor


Playing blame game
I was speechless for the first time
in my life when I read the top dog
Republican Jeb Bush call the Demo-
crats pathetic for an accounting error.
It has since been corrected by our
leader, Karen Thurman. Jeb, when
you leave office, your dirty laundry
will surface, as well.
Then I read the St. Pete Times arti-
cle that Bill Grant wrote about our
Sheriff Jeff Dawsy today You crossed
the line. I am very close to the Luns-
ford family Ruth and Archie Lunsford
even remarked they have adopted me
as their son.
How could you insinuate that it was
amateur hour at the sheriff's office?
They put in 23 hours out of a 24-hour
day trying to find little Jessie. What
about the Lunsford family? Have you
no respect for them? Do not even try
to say you wrote this article in de-
fense of the Lilnsfords. They read the
paper too. So does Sheriff Dawsy He

Jessie home, and you crucify every-

searching for her. Where were you?
You have enraged even your own
party. My phone has been ringing off
the wall since 6 a.m., and guess who
it was Democrats and Republicans
alike in disbelief.

izen of Citrus County: You are your
harshest critic. Do not let this awful
article tarnish you or your depart-

studies like the one done last year by
Drew Westen, professor of psychology
at Emory University. In asking people
to respond to a fake scenario a sol-
dier accused of brutality- at Abu
Ghraib he found that most, whether
liberal or conservative, based their
opinions not on the facts he presented
them, but on political ideology.
Something to consider as the noise
machines of left and right gear up for
Armageddon, otherwise known as the
battle over O'Connor's replacement.
President Bush has asked interest
groups to dial down their rhetoric and
has promised a nominee of great intel-
lect and integrity. Given the president's
hard-right politics and his stated admi-
ration for ultraconservative jurists
Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas,
there is, let us say, room for skepticism.
So the battles of recent years red
versus blue versus right versus left
versus conservative versus liberal -
come to a boil again. And as you brace
for what's ahead, it's hard to escape a
wistfulness for what's passing. Harder
still to escape a sense that what we see
in Sandra Day O'Connor's retirement
is a microcosm of what we see in the
nation at large.
A hello to rancor. And a farewell to

Missile defense

on hold for now

Associated Press
WASHINGTON Flight tests of the nation's
missile defense system will not resume until
this fall at the earliest as the military revamps
,the program following two failures in the past
seven months, a military official says.
The military may conduct two tests by year's
end, with the earliest possibly this fall, said the
official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
It is uncertain whether the military will have a
target missile ready for launch, however, and the
first test may not involve an attempt to hit a target
The delay further protracts Pentagon efforts
to validate a multibillion-dollar program that
supporters say will help protect the nation from
intercontinental ballistic missiles. Critics say
,that claim remains unproven. Even though the
military occasionally activates interceptor
bases in Alaska and California, they are not yet
on around-the-clock alert as envisioned. The
system has not had a successful intercept of a
Target since October 2002. Three tests have


MISSILE DEFENSE
ON HOLD: The U.S. military won't resume
testing its missile defense system until at
least this fall because of two recent failures.
NOT RELIABLE: An independent review of
the system, which has not had a successful
test since 2002, said a rush to deploy it has
led to inadequate quality control.
PLUNGING AHEAD: Despite the problems,
the Pentagon will install 10 new interceptor
missiles at a base in Alaska this summer.


ended in failure.
President Bush is seeking $9 billion for the
program in the upcoming budget year, $1 billion
less than previously planned.
Since 1983, the government has spent $92 bil-
lion to develop a system to shield the United
States from attack by ballistic missiles.
In the two most recent tests, each costing $85
million, the interceptors failed to get out of their
silos. Last Dec. 15, the test missile did not
launch because of a problem with communica-
tions software. The second test, on Feb. 14,
failed because an arm that holds up the inter-
ceptor did not fully retract in the moments
before it launched, officials said. The intercep-
tor shut down automatically

WASHINGTON The three-

August recesses is typically one
its most productive. That could
be even more so this year as law-
makers try to clear the decks for
a Supreme Court battle
Just this week, the Senate

sidering a measure to increase
federal support of embryonic
stem cell research.
Incessant chatter may fill the
24-hour cable news networks

undoubtedly will feel the irre-
sistible pull of television cam-
eras and news conferences.
But the wheels that drive the
passage of bills will grind on.
"The confirmation battle is
not going to slow things down,"
said Eric Ueland, chief of staff
to Senate Majority Leader Bill
Frist, R-Tenn. "Whatever hap-
pens on the Supreme Court is
not going to effect the floor."
That should hold true for
July, when the Senate debates
a defense policy bill and a
defense spending measure.
The chairman of the Senate
Appropriations Committee,
Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., is
pressing for time for as many
additional spending bills as
possible. The Senate also may
vote on a constitutional amend-


ment on flag burning.
"There may be a bump in the
road here and there, but my
guess is it will be pretty much
business as usual," said former
Senate Republican leader Bob
Dole.
During debates on Ruth
Bader Ginsburg and Steven G.
Breyer, the two most recent
nominees to join the Supreme
Court, "I don't think we missed
a beat," Dole said.
The House is expected to
take up a Central America
trade bill. That assumes
Republican leaders and the
Bush administration can pick
up from GOP lawmakers
who are leaning against the
pact or are undecided more
than a dozen votes needed for
its passage.

British mourn

their dead,

police arrest,

then release

three men

Associated Press
LONDON Britons gath-
ered in churches Sunday and
piled bouquets of flowers at
an underground station to
mourn victims of last week's
bomb attacks on London's
transport system as police
sorted through hundreds of
tips from the public.
Three men arrested at
Heathrow airport Sunday
under anti-terrorist laws
were released later in the day
without charge, police said.
Police had cautioned ag-
ainst linking the detentions of
the men all Britons to the
Thursday explosions three
subway trains and a double-
decker bus in which at least 49
people were killed and 700
wounded. Sixty victims re-
mained in hospitals Sunday.
Deep underground, police
continued the hot, filthy work
of searching for bodies from
the worst of the subway
bombings. Twenty-one bodies
have been recovered so far in
the tunnel between Russell
Square and King's Cross sta-
tions, said Andy Trotter,
assistant chief constable of
British Transport Police.
Those victims.are part of the
total death count of 49.
Authorities have said they
expected the death toll to
increase.
In an interview with Fox
News, Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice said the
attacks bore an "eerie famil-
iarity"'to the Madrid railway
bombings that killed 191 peo-
ple in March 2004.
"And so we're trying to help
the British in any way we
can," Rice said from Beijing.

Madrid. ,
London police refused to
comment, but Fran Townsend,
President Bush's homeland
security adviser, told "Fox



:


News Sunday" that both
nations were trying to locate
Nasar.
As police studied 1,700 tips
that have flooded in from the
public so far, they also pored
over surveillance camera
recordings and appealed for
more help from anyone with
amateur video or images from
camera-equipped cell phones
taken near the four blasts.
"I would ask people across
London to think very careful-
ly about anyone they know
whole behavior has changed
suddenly," said Deputy
Assistant Commissioner Pe-
ter Clarke, head of the
Metropolitan's Anti-Terrorist
Branch. "Tell us what you see.
and what you know, and let us
decide if the information you
have is valuable or not."

A personal note is pasted to
a floral tribute laid outside
King's Cross Station on
Sunday in memory of those
who died or were injured in
the London bombings
Thursday. One of the four
bombs exploded on the
underground line between
the Russell Square and
King's Cross underground
stations.


A former London police
chief, meanwhile, said the
bombers were "almost cer-
tainly" British subjects,
though investigators did not
endorse the theory.
"I'm afraid there's a suffi-
cient number of people in this
country willing to be Islamic
terrorists that they don't have
to be drafted in from abroad,"
said John Stevens, who head-
ed London's Metropolitan
Police for five years until
retiring in January
Brian Paddick, deputy
assistant commissioner 'of
Metropolitan Police, cau-
tioned that police had drawn
no conclusions about the
nationality of the attackers.
Stevens, writing in the
News of the World, said "we
have already convicted two
British shoe-bombers, Rich-
ard Reid and Saajid Badat,
and there were the two
British suicide bombers, Asif
Hanif and Omar Sharif, who
killed themselves in Israel."
Hanif was identified as the
suicide bomber who killed
three people and injured 60
on April 30, 2004, at a Tel Aviv
nightspot, while Sharif alleg-
edly fled from the scene and
was later found dead.


Israel moves ahead on barrier; Palestinians protest


Associated Press


JERUSALEM Israel's Cabinet on
Sunday affirmed a plan to surround
Jerusalem with a barrier, despite protests
by Palestinians, who say the Israelis are
unilaterally redrawing the disputed city's
boundaries and shifting its demographic
balance in favor of Jews.
The Israeli ministers acknowledged
about 55,000 Palestinian residents in four
neighborhoods will eventually be cut off
from their city by the separation barrier,
meant to stop Palestinian bombers, and
promised to come up with a plan by Sept 1


on how to alleviate some of the hardships.
Critics warned that despite the new pro-
visions, tens of thousands of Palestinians,
who have Jerusalem residency rights and
pay municipal taxes, would probably face
major delays in crossing through 11 gates
in the barrier every day on their way to
jobs and schools.
Palestinian officials rejected the Israeli
Cabinet decision.
"Israel is not serving the peace process
nor its security well with such acts, but
rather places more obstacles in the path to
peace," Palestinian leader Mahmoud
Abbas said.


The 40-mile Jerusalem barrier one o1
the most sensitive sections of a larger West
Bank complex also was expected tc
include the largest West Bank settlement
Maaleh Adumim, on the Jerusalem side
further tilting the demographic scale.
Currently, about one-third of the city's
700,000 residents are Arabs, who live in
east Jerusalem, captured by Israel from
Jordan in the 1967 Mideast war.
The Palestinians hope to establish their
capital in east Jerusalem, a traditional
Arab commercial, religious and social
center. Israel claims all the city as its cap.

Bombers


kill 48


in Iraq

Associated Press

BAGHDAD, Iraq A man
strapped with explosives blew
himself up Sunday at an Iraqi
military recruiting center in
Baghdad, one of a series of sui-
cide attacks that killed at least
48 people and ended a relative
lull in violence in recent days.
Prime Minister Ibrahim al-
Jaafari criticized U.S. and
multinational forces for shoot-
ing at Iraqi civilians who act
suspiciously near patrols or
military areas, but a spokes-
man for the. U.S. command
blamed the problem on the
growing use of suicide car
bombs as an insurgent weapon.
"Terrorists, through use of
suicide (vehicles), have caused
this predicament," said Lt. Col.
Steven Boylan. "They have
affected the normal level of
trust that people have for one
another and have made it diffi-
cult to distinguish between
normal traffic and a grave
potential threat."
Al-Jaafari said such cases
should be handled in a "civi-
lized" way, such as shooting at
tires instead of passengers.
But the attacks Sunday high-
lighted the American com-
plaint. The deadliest bombing
hit the army recruiting center
at Muthana airfield in central
Baghdad 'when a man dressed
in civilian clothes detonated
two explosive-laden belts am-
,:ne a crowd of recruits, killing
25 others and wounding nearly
50. Li S and hospital officials
sa id Most of the dead were
belie% ed to have been recruits.
Suicide bombers struck else-
where across the country:
At the \Valid border cross-
ing into Syria, t\xo suicide car
bombers killed at least seen
Iraqi customs officials.
Near the northern city ot'
Mosul, a suicide car bomber
rammed into a police com o.
carrying an Iraqi brigadier
general, killing five policemen,
the IU.S. military and police
said. The senior officer was
not injured.
A suicide car bomb in
Kirkuk killed at least four
civilians, according to police.
A second car bomb was rigged
to explode as rescuers rushed
to the scene, but it was found
and detonated by American
troops, police reported.
Two other suicide car
bombers struck near Fallujah,
killing an Iraqi civilian and
wounding a Marine, the U.S.
Marines said.

Earnhardt wins in

JOLIET, Ill. The roar from
the crowd told the story after
Sunday's NASCAR Nextel Cup
race at Chicagoland Speedway:
Dale Earnhardt Jr. is back
The fan favorite finally
appears to have broken out of a
nearly season-long slump.
A sellout crowd of about
100,000 at the suburban
Chicago track was howling its
approval as the jubilant
Earnhardt celebrated his first
win of the season by smoking
the tires of his No. 8 Chevrolet
and hugging crew members in
the infield grass.
"I was worried I was going to


go winless this year;" the
relieved Earnhardt said after
taking the 16th victory of his
career and his first since,last
November in Phoenix. "Now,
let's go out and do it again, win

To get this whin,

Ordonez leads

Detroit past

Tampa Bay 9-4

Associated Press
ST. PETERSBURG -
Magglio Ordonez and Dmitri
Young have the Detroit Tigers
feeling upbeat about the sec-
ond half of the season.
Ordonez drove in three runs
and Young hit a two-run homer
to lead the Tigers past the
Tampa Bay Devil Rays 9-4 on
Sunday.
"We're doing what
we're capable
of doing,"
Detroit man-
ager Alan
Trammell
said. "We know we can score
some runs on a regular basis."
Ordonez had a two-run dou-
ble in a three-run seventh that
put Detroit ahead 9-4. He has
11 RBIs in nine games since
his return from a hernia on
July 1.
"I'm starting to swing the bat
well," Ordonez said. "I feel like
the season starts over in the
second half."
Young keyed a four-run third
with his second homer in two
days and 15th overall. Rondell
White had a pair of run-scor-
ing singles.
Mike Maroth (7-9) allowed
four runs and 10 hits in 5 1-3
innings. The Tigers have won
five of six, reaching the All-
Star break at 42-44.
"It's too bad we're going to
the break," White said with a
laugh. "Hopefully we can pick
it up, keep working hard and
keep that confidence."

Armstrong gives up overall lead


Associated Press
MULHOUSE, France -
Lance Armstrong is content to
let someone else wear the yel-
low jersey at the Tour de
France for now.
He surrendered the overall
lead in the ninth stage Sunday,
taking the pressure off his
team as the Alps await and
challenges with key rivals
could begin in earnest
Armstrong's ultimate goal,
however, remains unchanged:
a seventh straight title at the
finish in Paris on July 24 before
he retires.
"We don't need the yellow
jersey," said Armstrong, who is
in third place, 2 minutes, 18
seconds behind the leader. "We
don't need to keep it in the
Alps, we need to have it at the
end."
Germany's Jens Voigt not a
contender to win in Paris -
took the jersey by finishing
three minutes ahead of the six-
time champion.


Denmark's Mickael
Rasmussen won the stage with
a gutsy solo ride. He was first
over the six climbs, covering
the 106.3-mile route from
Gerardmer to Mulhouse in
eastern France in 4 hours, 8
minutes, 20 seconds.
Voigt finished 3:04 later, just
behind France's Christophe
Moreau. Armstrong, who had
worn yellow for five days, fin-
ished in 28th place, crossing
the line comfortably in a pack
with his main rivals.
"I felt like today might be the
day when the jersey would be
given away and it turned out it
was," Armstrong said.
The riders rest Monday
before the first of three Alpine
stages from Grenoble to the
ski station of Courchevel. The
route has two major climbs..
Wednesday's stage is one of
the hardest this year, with
three ascents in quick succes-
sion peaking with the mon-
strous Col du Galibier, the
Tour's highest point at 8,677


feet.
The good news for
Armstrong is that his Discovery
Channel teammates appeared
to have recovered quickly from
their collapse on a climb
Saturday, when all eight aban-
doned him, unable to match
the quick uphill pace. That left
Armstrong alone to fend off his
rivals.
"We were better," Armstrong
said. "That's good going into
the rest day: regroup and get
ready for the big climbs."
Rivals said Discovery's
blowout probably was nothing
more than a temporary bout of
fatigue after a fast first week of
racing, and Armstrong remains
the man to beat
"Don't sell the bear's skin
before you've killed the bear,"
Moreau said.
"That won't happen again,"
U.S. rider Bobby Julich of
Team CSC said. "You can
maybe disappoint Lance once,
but it's better not to disappoint
him twice."


Discovery rode hard Sunday
at the front of the main pack,
strategically allowing
Rasmussen and then Voigt and
Moreau to pedal off ahead,
confident they cannot chal-
lenge Armstrong for the overall
Tour title.
Armstrong teammate George
Hincapie, the only Discovery
racer to have ridden with the
American for all of his six Tour
wins, said the squad has
become a victim of its own suc-
cess.
When it wins events like the
team time trial, which it did
again this year, "nobody even
says congratulations any
more," he said.
Hincapie said the only news
is if the team has a bad day.
"Then everybody loves that,"
he said.
"The important thing is just
put it behind us," he added.
"By time we get to the Alps
hopefully we'll be back to nor-

games, 94 over the Cleveland Indians on

Beyond the Alps come the
Pyrenees, followed by a time

the Tour an event at which
Armstrong excels. In short, he
has plenty of opportunities to
retake the yellow jersey.
Voigt of Team CSC does not
expect to keep the lead.



RAYS

Jorge Cantu hit a two-run
homer for the Devil Rays, who
have lost 14 of 16. Tampa Bay, at
28-61, has its second-worst
record at the All-Star break in
eight years of existence. The
Devil Rays were 27-61 at the
2001 break
"We don't have a choice. If we
want to move forward, we've got
to put it behind us and keep
moving forward," Tampa Bay
outfielder Carl Crawford said.
Tampa Bay has allowed a
major league-high 533 runs,
which is tied for third most ever
at the All-Star break Manager
Lou Piniella didn't rule out
some roster changes before the
resumption of play Thursday at
Toronto.
"Let's see what happens here
with the makeup of the team
over the break," Piniella said.
"See if we add anybody, or
make some moves."
The Tigers went ahead 6-3 in
the third. Chris Shelton had a
run-scoring double, and White
hit an RBI single before

Earnhardt said. "But 'there
were two or three laps when he
didn't catch up much on us and
I just drove it as fast as I could,
and it was enough."
Earnhardt crew chief Steve
Hmiel made the two-tire calls
on the last two stops.
"It was just one of those no-
brainer decisions," Hmiel said.
"Junior just got up on the
wheel like I know he can and
he won the race."
Jimmie Johnson, the series
points leader, came back from a
lap down to finish third, fol-
lowed by Vickers and Stewart.
"It's been a long time coming,
man," said Earnhardt "It's a lot
of emotion, more than I can han-
dle right now. For these guys, all
the darts they've had thrown at
them this year. It's just awesome.
"I thought we had a top-10,
maybe a top-five car," he added.
"My guys on pit road won the
race for me. Got me out front
with two tires."
Kenseth, who has not won
since March 2004 at Las Vegas,
was bitterly disappointed.
"Our car was awesome," he
said. "I'm trying to be a gra-
cious loser, but it's a tough
one."
The call to take on four tires
was made by his crew chief,
Robbie Reiser, but Kenseth
wouldn't criticize him.
"I can't really blame Robby.
We were kind of a sitting duck
A lot of guys were going to
either stay out or take two
tires," Kenseth said. "Overall,
it was a great day, just a tough
one to lose."

"Today was my very last
chance to take the jersey," he
said.
Moreau 'is second overall,
1:50 behind Voigt. Because
they finished together in a
group, the time differences
between Armstrong and his
main rivals Jan Ullrich, Ivan
Basso and Alexandre
Vinokourov remained
unchanged.
Ullrich finished 29th,
Vinokourov was 35th and
Basso 39th.


Young's two-run shot
Tampa Bay starter Mark
Hendrickson (3-6) departed
after Young's homer. He
allowed six runs and eight hits
in 2 2-3 innings.
Young. went 6-for-18 in the
four-game series. He snapped
an 0-for-18 slide in the series
opener Thursday.
"Dmitri seems like this series
he started to come out of it,"
Trammell said.
After Julio Lugo hit an RBI
double, Cantu snapped an 0-for-
11 slide with his two-run homer
as the Devil Rays took a 3-1 lead
in the first. Cantu has eight
homers and 25 RBIs over his
last 23 games.
Detroit opened the scoring in
the first on Ordonez's RBI
grounder. Craig Monroe's sacri-
fice fly one inning later got the
Tigers within 3-2. Monroe has,
53 RBIs, the most by a Detroit
outfielder at the All-Star break
since Kirk Gibson had 63 in
1985.
Nick Green ended Maroth's
day with his sixth-inning RBI
single that made it 64.
"I'm really excited about the
second half," Maroth said. "If
we're healthy, it will be fun."


Stewart, still aching from a
crash on Friday that forced
him to go to a backup car and
start from the rear of the 43-car
field, was also disappointed
that he couldn't pull off a third
straight victory and defend his
win here last year.
"If we'd have stayed out like
I wanted to, we'd have won the
race," said Stewart, who has
now finished third, second,
first and fifth in his last four
starts at Chicagoland.
Greg Biffle, second in the
season standings, finished 11th
Sunday and fell from 73 to 108
points behind Johnson. The
victory moved Earnhardt up to
13th place, 115 points behind
10th-place Kurt Busch and 491
points behind Johnson.
The top 10 drivers and any
others within 400 points of the
leader following the 26th race
of the season will be eligible to
race for the series champi-
onship over the final 10 events.
For four-time series champi-
on Gordon, who finished 33rd,
it was his sixth finish of 30th or
lower in the last eight races.
He fell to 15th place in the
standings, 502 points behind
Johnson, his Hendrick
Motorsports teammate.

Hurricane means surf's up!


Associated Sports

PANAMA CITY BEACH -
J.C. Smith spent nearly as
much time on his cell phone as
his surfboard while Hurricane
Dennis approached.
He was calling friends, fami-
ly members and fellow surfers,
alerting them to conditions at
Panama City Beach in the
Florida Panhandle.
"Surf's up and it's getting
better by the minute," he said
Saturday
Indeed. With Dennis churn-
ing in the Gulf of Mexico,
surfers up and down the
Florida coast took to their
boards to catch some of the
most radical waves of the year.
This was their hurricane
party.
"The bigger the better, and it
doesn't get any better around
here than just before a hurri-
cane," said Smith, a 27-year-old
bartender who surfed
Hurricanes Frances and Ivan
last year.
The area surrounding the
pier at Panama City Beach was
filled with thrillseekers
Saturday, all of them looking
for the perfect wave in less
than ideal conditions. Nearly
50 surfers were spotted in "the
spot" at one time.
Some young, some old. Some
expert, some novice. Some
men, some women. In surfing
lingo, there were Bennys,
Barneys and Bettys.


"It's a good adrenaline rush',"
said Kevin Faoutas, a 42-year-
old father of two who lives in
nearby Destin. "We don't get
the Laird Hamilton-Hawaii-
type waves here in the Gulf
Coast, so we have to take what
we can get when we can get it.
That means coming out during
a hurricane."
Faoutas tweaked an ankle on
"the smallest wave out there"
and spent most of the after-
noon watching from the beach.
But for others, Hurricane
Dennis had plenty to offer.
The conditions were fairly
calm early Saturday, but by
mid-afternoon, the waves
were just right for the locals.
At first, only a few had
arrived. But after a dozen or
so phone calls from Smith and
others, the water was filled
with surfers.
Three, four and sometimes
five surfers shared the same
wave. There were some gnarly
moves, but more often than
not, the unusually large waves
- about 5 to 7 feet had arms
flailing, feet flying and boards
flipping. In surfing lingo,
there was plenty of launching,
dumping and pasting.
"There's always small-wave
heroes," said Charles Pettit, a
50-year-old former profession-
al surfer who now lives in
Panama City Beach. "It could
be worse."
There is inherent danger in
surfing during hurricane con-
ditions. Not only are some

surfers too unskilled for the
waves, but the bigger surf usu-
ally causes stronger undertow
- rip currents that can quick-
ly pull swimmers into deep
water faster than they can
swim back to shore.
But the only problem


surfers faced Saturday was
sudden changes in weather.
After spending several
hours lined up and waiting for
juicy waves, surfers at Panama
City Beach found themselves
in the midst of heavy rain
bands associated with


Hurricane Dennis. Officials
estimated it dumped about 2
inches of rain on the area in
just a few minutes.
Surfers who had been jock-
eying for swells were now rac-
ing for shore, and garish surf-
boards became protective bar-


riers from pelting rain and
swirling sand.
"People think we're crazy,
but as you can see, no one
wants to surf in a hurricane,"
said Fritz Brugge, 45. "Onge
it's gets really ugly, we're
done."


Nadal tops Swedish Open


Associated Press

BASTAD, Sweden French Open
champion Rafael Nadal captured his sev-
enth title of the year Sunday, overcoming a
sluggish start to beat Tomas Berdych of the
Czech Republic 2-6, 6-2, 64 in the Swedish
Open final.
Only top-ranked Roger Federer with
eight titles has won more tournaments in
2005. Nadal, seeded first and ranked third,
has won 29 straight matches on clay, his last
loss coming in April. He is 54-8 overall this
year and 43-2 on clay
"It's incredible to have won seven clay-
court titles this year," Nadal said.
He won this tournament for the first
time, having lost in the quarterfinals in
2003 and '04. He became the eighth
Spanish winner of the Swedish Open, one
of the oldest on the tour
Berdych's biggest victory came in the
Olympics last year when he beat Federer
Ranked 42nd, his only title came on clay
last year in Palermo, Sicily He was playing
in his second ATP Tour final.
"I played quite good," Berdych said. "But
he is so good on clay It's his best surface. If
we play on another surface, a faster court,

Hollywood stars Ben Affleck
James Woods, Tobey Maguire,
David Schwimmer, Jennifer
Tilly, Mimi Rogers and the many
who have played on Celebrity
Poker Showdown have given the
game a cool cachet. Woods
seemed to be everywhere in the
runup to the World Series cham-
pionship, his hair white, his
dark suits pressed, his sunglass-
es always on. He-stacked two
chairs together to raise himself
above the other players and
emanated at once high energy
and calm.
"I play every single day pri-
vate games, casinos, online,"
said Woods, who lasted 11/2
hours in the first round of the
main event before his chips
dwindled and he exited
Saturday night when his pocket
fives lost to pocket queens. "I
read about it I'm very commit-
ted to it I'm passionate about it
One of the things I like about it
is, it's a challenge to your mind,
your soul. You've got to be an
artist and scientist to play poker
well. I'm a little of both."
Woods said his style reflects
his personality.
"I'm a very thoughtful, con-
scious, analytical person, capa-
ble of aggression, but I'm very,
very careful about it," he said. "I
don't want to go to a gunfight
with a knife. When I go to a gun-
fight I want a howitzer I have a
great deal of patience and disci-
pline. Once in a while I'll play a
marginal hand and if I hit it then
I can be a real killer"
Asked if his acting skills help
him bluff, Woods said: "It's more
how I read other people. I know
if they're telling me the truth.
I'm a director, too, so when I
watch people I can tell when
they're lying. It's one of my
strengths."


my chances are much better"
Nadal and Berdych are 19, the youngest
finalists in an ATP Tour event this season.
It was the first time teenagers played for
the title since Delray Beach, in 1999 when
Lleyton Hewitt beat Xavier Malisse--both
were 18.
Nadal finished with 15 unforced to 43 for
Berdych. The Spaniard struggled early
and lost a set for the first time in the tour-
nament He was broken three times and
made just 36 percent of his first serves. But
Nadal broke his hard-hitting opponent at
the start of the second set and had little
trouble the rest of the way
"I didn't play well today," Nadal said. "In
the first set, I couldn't do so much. He made
few mistakes. It was tough for me."
, After trading early service breaks in the
decisive set, Nadal capitalized on
Berdych's unforced errors to lead 3-2. The
Spaniard then held serve, starting with a
love game to go ahead 4-2.
"I played more aggressive in the second
set and hit the balls deeper," Nadal said.

Texas Hold 'em is a game of
skill, judgment, luck and
endurance, the days lasting 14
or 15 hours. There are two cards
down, a round of bets, the flop of
three community cards and
more bets, checks or raises.
Then there's fourth street, oth-
erwise known as the turn card,
then fifth street or the river
card, chances to bet after each
one, the best five cards out of all
seven taking the pot The blinds

two players to the left of the

as the day goes on, raising the
stakes and the pressure.
It takes mental acuity, not
physical agility to play the game.
Portly defending champion
Greg Raymer is the best exam-
ple that fitness, isn't required in
a sport where the greatest exer-
tion is flipping cards, stacking
chips and lifting drinks. But the
long days do take their toll, and
more young players are hitting
the gym.
"You have to have a tremen-
dous amount of mental and
physical stamina," said Robert
Williamson III, a 34-year-old pro
who proudly says he's half the
man he used to be, down from
400 pounds to 200 after gastric
bypass surgery three years ago
and a lot of workouts since.
"There's an extreme amount
of pressure on your body at the
highest level and there's so
much money at stake. So it turns
out that we really are athletes.
You really do have to train and
be in a lot better shape than
what people think More players
are working out than ever
before. It's kind of like when
Tiger Woods got on the PGA
Tour. Players at the time didn't
really work out They took their
skills for granted. I swim about
every other day, play basketball,
go for a lot of fast walks. Antonio

Annie Duke works out religious-
ly Phil Ivey and Phil Gordon are
in great shape."


ing Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka 6-4, 6-4 for
his fourth title this year.
Gaudio, seeded second, had lost the final of
this tournament in 2002 and lost in the semifinals
in 2000 and 2003.
"It's great to finally win this title," he said. "I'd
come close so many times."
Gaudio, the 2004 French Open champion,
has seven career tiles. His other titles this year
were at Vina del Mar, Buenos Aires and Estoril.
The 20-year-old Wawrinka, who had never
reached a semifinal before, was looking to
become only the third Swiss in the Open Era to
win the Swiss Open, following Heinz Guenthardt
(1980) and Roger Federer (2004).
"I am 26 so I have the advantage of experi-
ence," Gaudio said. "I am always nervous in any
final and it must be even worse for him because
it was his home crowd and his first final. The final
is where you have to know how to bring out your
best game."
Gaudio took the opening set as Wawrinka
struggled to find his rhythm. But Wawrinka then
cut down on his unforced errors. He broke to
lead 4-2 in the second set, but Gaudio broke
right back. Wawrinka then called for a three-
minute medical break to treat an ankle injury.

World team blanks U.S. squad


Associated Press

DETROIT Justin Huber has been
to the All-Star Futures game three
times, and he's not real interested in
coming back
'Although it's a tremendous honor,
there is another side to it and that side
is we're all pushing to get to the major
leagues," the hard-hitting Kansas City
prospect said. "This is not the high-
light of your career."
Huber hit a two-run double that
earned him MVP honors, and Texas'
Edison Volquez, nicknamed "Little
Pedro," led a parade of dazzling pitch-
ers that sent the World team to a 4-0
victory Sunday over the U.S. squad.

ing in this minor league showcase for
the third time, hit the only home run at
spacious Comerica Park to spark a
World squad managed by former
Detroit Tigers reliever Guillermo
Hernandez, the 1984 AL MVP and Cy
Young Award winner.
Hernandez's counterpart, Royals
Hall of Famer George Brett, was espe-
cially proud of Huber, even though he
beat Brett's team.


The Australian first baseman, who
spent 11 days in the big leagues last
month when All-Star Mike Sweeney
went on the disabled list, gave his
team a 3-0 lead with a fifth-inning dou-
ble off the base of the right-field fence.
"Good for him. I worked with him all
spring and was happy to see him do
that," said Brett, the Royals' vice pres-
ident of baseball operations. "I hope
he keeps it up."
The Rangers surely hope the same
for Volquez, the spitting image of Mets
ace Pedro Martinez on the mound.
With long fingers, nasty stuff and No.
45 on his back- all just like his idol -
the 22-year-old right-hander from the
Dominican Republic earned the win
by tossing a scoreless inning.
Volquez's delivery is strikingly simi-
lar to that of Martinez, who won't
appear at Tuesday's All-Star game
because he pitched Sunday, leading
New York past Pittsburgh 6-1 for his
10th win.
And it's no wonder. Volquez, slightly
built and just 2 inches taller than
Martinez, makes it a point to study his
hero on TV and in video games, earn-
ing him his catchy monicker back


home.
"I like it, I like it," Volquez said. "Not
only is he a good player, but he's a good
person."
In fact, just after Volquez threw his
first pitch Sunday, a Washington
Nationals scout sitting behind home
plate jotted down: "Looks like Pedro."
Connected by a mutual friend,
Volquez recently chatted with
Martinez on the phone.
"I heard someone said to him,
'There's this kid who's imitating you,'
and he said, 'It's OK, we're both
Dominicans,"' Volquez said. "When I
started, everyone said I had some-
thing similar to him. Then my pitching
coaches said to me, 'OK, you want to
be like Pedro? Let's pitch like him."'
Choo, a left-handed hitting outfield-
er for Triple-A Tacoma, connected in
the third off Blue Jays lefty Zach
Jackson, the losing pitcher. Choo, who
had a rough day in right field during
last year's Futures game in Houston,
went 1-for-3 with an RBI in a brief
callup to the Mariners earlier this sea-
son.
Another Seattle prospect, shortstop
Yuniesky Betancourt, made a gor-


geous play to rob B.J. Upton of a hit
Detroit fans got a peek at two hard-
throwing Tigers prospects: Justin
Verlander and Joel Zumaya each
flashed fastballs in the upper 90s.
Nine World team pitchers combined
to allow only four hits in the seven-
inning game, including two singles by
Dodgers third base prospect Andy
LaRoche, the younger brother of
Atlanta first baseman Adam and son of
former major league pitcher Dave.
Baltimore lefty Adam Loewen
entered with two on and got three outs
for the save. With the bases loaded, he
retired San Francisco's Kevin
Fransden on a 1-2-3 double play to end
the game.
Huber's pinch-hit double off
Pittsburgh's Paul Maholm with the
bases loaded was his first hit in four
career Futures game at-bats and it
capped a wild year for the 22-year-old
slugger.
He was traded by the Mets to
Pittsburgh and then Kansas City last
July for Futures game teammate Jose
Bautista as part of the three-team deal
that netted pitcher Kris Benson for
New York


"It really did rock my world for a lit-
tle bit," Huber said before signing hel-
mets and posing for pictures in the
clubhouse. "It took me a whole offsea-
son to get hungry to play baseball
again."
And in his final game in the Mets'
system, Huber tore up his left knee in
a home-plate collision, costing him a
chance to play for the Australian team
that won a silver medal at the 2004
Olympics in Athens.
But the injury also prompted the
Royals to move him to first base,
which probably is helping his offense.
Now at Double-A Wichita, he's hitting
.332 with nine homers and 50 RBIs.
And Huber knows that winning the
Futures game MVP is a good sign. All
six previous winners are flourishing
in the majors: Alfonso Soriano, Sean
Burroughs, Toby Hall, Jose Reyes,
Grady Sizemore and Aaron Hill.
"It's definitely a boost of confi-
dence," Huber said. "It's a definite
honor to be thrown in the mix with
those names. Hopefully, things work
out in the big leagues, as well as it has
for those guys."


Wilson gets first Champ Car


Associated Press

TORONTO Justin Wilson briefly
admired the trophy he earned for his
first Champ Car victory, then the
'Englishman quickly dedicated his win
to fellow Britons still reeling from last
week's bomb attacks in London.
"I'd like to say about the bombing,
everyone is thinking about the people
back home," Wilson said Sunday from
the top of the podium at the Toronto
Molson Indy.
"It's great to get this and dedicate it to
that."
Later, he said the attacks on London's
transportation system had made it an
emotional week for him.
"Obviously it was very sad news to
hear about the bombings, especially
after the celebration of the Olympics,"
he said. "It's important that we just
carry on."
Wilson passed Oriol Servia with 11
laps to go and held on after the race
ended under caution.
A.J. Allmendinger, Wilson's teammate
for the upstart RuSport team, crashed
as he was closing in on Servia for sec-
ond place. Allmendinger brushed the
wall then careened across the track into
a tire barrier.
Mario Dominguez then slammed into
Allmendinger's stopped car to bring out
a caution with seven laps to go. The race
ended when officials were unable to get
the track cleaned during the allotted
time the series had to finish the event.
"I was a bit nervous they might get the
wreck cleaned up and get one more shot
at losing the win,"' Wilson said.
Servia, who was seeking his first
career victory, was disappointed not to
get a final chance to pass Wilson.
"The yellow was just I wanted," he
said. "But unfortunately we didn't get
another restart."
Alex Tagliani finished third and was
followed by Jimmy Vasser and
Sebastian Bourdais, who overcame an
early accident with Paul Tracy to finish
fifth and reclaim the lead in the Champ
Car series standings.
Bourdais came into the race trailing
Tracy by one point in the standings.
Both started on the front row and were
poised to battle for the win. But they
wrecked into each other in a drag race
off pit road following the first round of
stops.
Bourdais cut his tire when he sliced
across the top of Tracy's car and had to
make a second stop that eliminated him
from contention. Tracy continued on
without his left front wing and was lead-
ing until he ran out of gas and quit the
race.
Bourdais now has a 15-point lead over

Justin Wilson, from England, pumps his fist as he takes a victory lap after winning
the Champ Car World Series race in Toronto.


Tracy, who finished 16th.
Wilson, an Englishman who-spent the
2003 season racing in Formula One,
qualified third and was having an
uneventful race. But after Servia inher-
ited the lead when Tracy retired, Wilson
focused on reeling Servia in.
He made his pass on the inside of the
third turn on the 1.775-mile, temporary
street course.
Wilson's victory moved him into third
in the series standings, 22 points behind
Bourdais.
Servia, meanwhile, continued the
career resurgence that began four races
ago.
Hired by Newman-Haas Racing after
Bruno Junqueira broke his back in the
Indianapolis 500, Servia has been a ter-
rific injury replacement for a team that
was eyeing a championship for
Junqueira.
They have hardly missed a beat in the
four races with Servia, who now has a
second-place finish and a pair of thirds
since joining the team. He moved into
fifth place in the standings.


Servia drives wearing a sticker on his
helmet in honor of his friend Junqueira,
who made his first public appearance
this weekend since the accident when
he traveled to this race.
He watched it from the Newman-
Haas pits, cheering on Servia, who was
poised to win his first career race until
Wilson snatched it away from him.
Wilson has come close before, earn-
ing the pole last month in Portland and
leading 43 of the first 45 laps before
retiring with mechanical problems.
His weekend got off to a slow start
when he struggled in the early practice
sessions and was seventh in the first
qualifying session.
But he posted the second-fastest lap
during Saturday's qualifying session
arid missed out on the pole, which went
to Bourdais.
"It seems hard to believe, but I am
very excited for RuSport and very excit-
ed for myself," Wilson said. "I think this
is something that has been in the cards
for the last few races."


Montoya gets his



first win of season


Associated Press

SILVERSTONE, England -
Juan Pablo Montoya took a risk
to win the British Grand Prix,
one of the few moves that's
worked this season for the for-
mer Indy 500 champion.
He beat Fernando Alonso,
who finished second to extend
his Formula One points lead.
This was Montoya's first victory
of the season and first with
McLaren-Mercedes. The
Colombian's previous win came
in Brazil in the last race of 2004.
Montoya started third on the
grid behind Alonso, who was on
the pole. Montoya nearly
brushed Alonso going through
the first turn. Seconds later at
the next corner, he swept by as
the Spaniard slowed to avoid a
crash.
"One of us was going to back
off, or we were going to go off,"
Montoya said after his fifth
career ..victory. .."And. the
chances are he was going to
" back off before me. He has got a
fight for the championship, and
I just wanted to win the race."
Alonso had no intention of
challenging Montoya on the
first two corners.
"It was not the time to risk for
me in the first two corners of a
60-lap race," he said. "I knew
that Juan Pablo was not going to
back off, so better to back off
than crash."
Alonso improved to 77 points
after 11 of 19 races. Raikkonen,
who finished third, stayed sec-
ond with 51. Michael
Schumacher, who was sixth,
remained third with 43.
Montoya moved up to sixth with
26 points going into the July 24
German GP at Hockenheim.
Montoya's victory came
before a sellout crowd of
100,000 at the former World War
II airfield in central England.
Fans paused for a minute's
silence before the start in trib-
ute to the victims of the bomb-
ings in London.
Montoya never trailed and
finished in 1 hour, 24 minutes,
29.588 seconds and averaged
136.089 mph. Alonso was 2.7
seconds back with McLaren's
Kimi Raikkonen 15 seconds
behind the winner.

Renault was fourth and Jenson

Colombia's Juan Pablo Montoya
lifts the trophy in celebration
after winning the British Grand
Prix.
Button of BAR-Honda was fifth.
Button, yet to win an F1 race in
five seasons, was trying to
become the first British winner
at Silverstone since David
Coulthard in 2000.
Montoya has had a frustrat-
ing season. He missed the third
and fourth races with a shoul-
der injury he said he picked up
in a fall playing tennis. He did-
n't take part in the next three
races. In Canada, he was
kicked out for ignoring a red
stoplight in the pit lane.
Like 14 other drivers using
Michelin tires, he sat out the
next race at Indianapolis with
concerns over tire safety. Last
weekend in France, he went
out with a blown engine.
"My first few races back, I
could hardly really drive the
car," Montoya said. "I had quite
a few injections to get through
the pain, and you're not really
driving 100 percent.
Everything that could go
wrong, was going wrong."
With five wins in 11 races,
Alonso almost won on a track
he says is not suited for
Renaults. With eight races
remaining, the 23-year-old
driver is moving closer to his
first title. He's been quick and
consistent. His two challengers
- Raikkonen and Schumacher,
the seven-time series champi-
on have been neither.


Milbrett's 100th goal highlights U.S. 7-0 triumph


Associated Press

PORTLAND Ore. Tiffeny
Milbrett cradled the soccer ball
wrapped in tape and inscribed
simply in magic marker: "Tiff.
100."
One of Milbrett's teammates
had retrieved the ball for her
after she became just the sixth
woman to score 100 interna-
tional goals, helping the U.S.
national team beat Ukraine 7-0
on Sunday.
Milbrett joyously raised her
arms to the cheering home-
town crowd at the University of
Portland's Merlo Field after
her shot went over Ukraine
goalie Veronika Shulha's head
in the 57th minute.
"It's indescribable. I've been
thinking that if I did it, it
wouldn't be a big deal,"
Milbrett said. "But it was unbe-
lievable."
The game was the second of
three exhibition matches for


the team in the United States
this summer. The national
team beat Canada 2-0 on June
26 in Virginia Beach, Va.
The-U.S. women are 6-0 this
year and have not allowed a
goal. They won all four of their
games at the Algarve Cup in
Portugal, including a 1-0 victo-
ry over Germany in the cham-
pionship game.
Ukraine went 2-1-5 in quali-
fying play for the 2005
European Women's
Championships, which
Germany won last month.
Mia Hamm, who has retired
from the national team, leads
all women with 158 career
goals. Milbrett's teammate,
captain Kristine Lilly, scored
her 104th against Ukraine.
Milbrett played at the
University of Portland under
the late Clive Charles. Before
the game Sunday she was hon-
ored for her 200th career cap,
which she earned against


Canada, in a ceremony that
included Charles' widow.
Milbrett returned this year to
the team that she left early last
year because of differences
with then-coach April
Heinrichs. Greg Ryan, an assis-
tant under Heinrichs, formally
took over the team before the
match against Canada.
With her return, Milbrett
becomes one of the more rec-
ognizable faces on the women's
team. Veteran stars Hamm,
Julie Foudy and Joy Fawcett
retired from the national team
at the end of last year.
Defender Brandi Chastain was
not invited to rejoin the team
this year.
Milbrett's teammates kept
feeding her the ball Sunday,
but she said she kept trying to
force it. The United States
already had a 4-0 lead against
the clearly outmatched
Ukranians when she finally
broke through.


"It's a very young team, not
in regards to age, but to experi-
ence," Ukraine coach
Volodymyr Kulayev said of his
team through a translator.
Christie Welsh rushed
Ukraine defender Inesa Titova
and Shulha, then leapt over
them when they collided and
fell, to score in the 31st minute.
It was Welsh's seventh goal this
year.
In the 36th minute, Lilly's
goal went left of Shulha. Lilly's
pass to Aly Wagner out in front
put the U.S. up 3-0 in the 48th
minute. Moments later,
Milbrett fooled two defenders
with her footwork but Shulha
made a dramatic diving save.
U.S. reserve Danielle
Fotopoulos scored her first
goal in the 51st minute to make
it 4-0 before Milbrett's goal put
the crowd on its feet Coach
Ryan called the shot "incredi-
ble" and said it showed why
Milbrett is one of the best.

O'Hair rules Deere


Associated Press

SILVIS, Ill. Sitting behind
a trophy, his wife and in-laws in
front of him, Sean O'Hair was
very much a man at peace.
He's having the success his
father demanded, winning the
John Deere Classic on Sunday
for his first victory in just his
18th career start, a day before
his 23rd birthday But he's
found a way to win and be
happy, a balance that didn't
seem possible when he was
growing up.
"That's really the main thing
why I think I've succeeded so
quickly, is that I'm in such a
great situation with my family
I'm happy and I've got a great
relationship with my father-in-
law and mother-in-law, and my
wife is my best friend," he said
after shooting a 6-under 65
Sunday.
"I had a tough situation
when I was a kid. That's the
easiest way to put it," he added.
"It just was not a happy situa-
tion, and there was a lot of
pressure there. I just think now
it's the exact opposite. How
can you not succeed?"
Starting the day five strokes
back, O'Hair climbed into con-
tention quickly with three
birdies on his first nine. He got
to the top of the leaderboard
with a 14-foot putt on No. 14,,
and his victory looked secure
when he blasted out to within 2
feet for another birdie on 17.
But after being so steady all
day, O'Hair made things inter-
esting.
"(On) 18, especially a guy in
my situation who never won
before,-you're definitely almost
puking," he said, laughing. "My
hands were so sweaty, I was
more concerned about keeping
my hands dry than anything."
He nearly put his second
shot in the water, forcing him to
scramble to make par. With his
ball on the hazard line, O'Hair
took a "baseball swing" with
his 8-iron and chipped within
10 feet
But with Hank Kuehne and
J.L. Lewis still two groups
behind him at 15 under, O'Hair
had to wait If either made
birdie on 18, it was going to a
playoff.
Lewis folded first, putting his
second shot in the water.
Kuehne hit a monster drive,
leaving him 94 yards to the
hole. He flew the green on his
second shot, but could still

Classic. O'Hair birdied the hole and went on to win the tournament by one stroke at 16-under par.


make birdie with a 24-foot putt.
"Hank is the type of player
that performs his best under
pressure. Whenever you put
something in front of Hank,
he's pretty much going to do it,"
O'Hair said. "I was really
sweating it put."
Kuehne left his putt 2 feet
short, though, and O'Hair
embraced his wife, Jackie. The
victory also earned him a spot
in the British Open.
O'Hair, who earned $720,000,
had a 16-under 268 total on the
TPC at Deere Run. He opened
with rounds of 66, 69 and 68.
Kuehne (68) and Robert
Damron (67) finished one
stroke behind O'Hair, and
Lewis (72), defending champi-
on Mark Hensby (64) and Wes
Short (66) were another shot
back
"Unfortunately I wasn't able
to win," Kuehne said. "But if I
had to get beat by somebody,
he's a great guy and a solid kid
and a very, very good player. So
I'm very happy for him."
The tournament had lost
much of its buzz after Michelle
Wie failed in her attempt to
become the first woman to
make a PGA Tour cut in 60
years, missing by two strokes.
But some of the electricity was
back Sunday thanks to O'Hair,
a one-time prodigy with a story
of his own.
O'Hair may look like he's


still in high school, but his per-
sonality. and game are well
beyond his years, forged by a
childhood that was anything
but. His father, Marc, pushed
him relentlessly, seemingly
more interested in raising a
pro golfer than a son.
O'Hair was up running every
day at 5 a.m., and on the course
from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. For every
bogey on his scorecard, his
father made him run a mile. He
was pushed to turn pro at 17,
before he'd even graduated
from high school.
"What am I supposed to do
- say, 'Oh, Seany boy, you don't
have to get up early today?'.
The military, they know how to
build a champion," Marc
O'Hair told The Orlando
Sentinel in December.
"Somebody who slacks off,
that's a loser. The typical high
school kid is hanging out at the
mall. That's a loser."
"My turning pro, a lot of peo-
ple wouldn't agree with it at 17.
I don't even know if I agree
with it, to be honest with you,"
O'Hair said. "Some of the
experiences I've had have
made my game better and in
other ways, they've made my
game worse."
And one of those experi-
ences turned his life around.
O'Hair was 19 when he met
Jackie, a junior playing at
Florida Atlantic, on a practice


range. Their first date hardly
had the makings of a great
relationship; he sat on one end
of the couch, she on the other,
neither of them talking while
they watched a movie.
But O'Hair found love with
Jackie, whom he calls his
"guardian angel." More impor-
tantly, he found a life with her
family
"That was the best thing that
ever happened to me," O'Hair
said. "The great thing is, no
matter what my situation is as
far as career-wise would be,
meeting them I would be
happy as a clam."
Jackie and Molly, their 5-
month-old daughter, travel
with O'Hair wherever he goes.
So do his in-laws; Cathy Lucas
walks the course with Jackie,
helping with the baby. Steve
Lucas is O'Hair's caddie and
the father figure he's never
had.
"I've got," O'Hair said,
"everything I need."
The only thing missing is his
father. The two haven't spoken
since Dec. 28, 2002, O'Hair's
wedding day.
"I don't really know, to be
honest with you," O'Hair said
when asked what he'd say to
his father. "I haven't really
thought about that. I'm just
enjoying it with my family
here, and hello to my mom
back home."


LPGA: Playoff battle won by Bowie


Associated Press

SYLVANIA, Ohio Heather Bowie won
her first LPGA Tour title Sunday, parring the
third hole of a playoff with Gloria Park in the
Jamie Farr Owens Coming Classic.
Park made things easy for Bowie, hitting a
low hook out of the rough and into a creek on
the par-5 18th hole. After hitting clutch putts
on the first two extra holes to extend the play-
off, Park triple-bogeyed the last hole.
Bowie, who earned $180,000 and a three-
year LPGA Tour exemption, closed with a 4-
under 67 to match Park at 10-under 274.
Fighting back tears, the winner hugged and
kissed her caddie after hitting a short putt to
clinch the victory.
Park finished with a 66 to force the playoff,


birdieing the 17th hole in regulation to pull
into a four-way tie.
Bowie has always been seen as a promising
star who never lived up to that promise, a two-
time NCAA champion at Texas who forgot
how to win in the pressure cooker of pro golf.
She faltered down the stretch in regulation
with a costly bogey at the 17th to drop into the
four-way tie, then plugged away while Sung
Ah Yim and Hee-Won Han posted late bogeys
to fall out of the logjam.
Han started the day with a two-shot advan-
tage and led by four shots with eight holes to
play before collapsing. She had three bogeys
and a double bogey in the final eight holes.
She fell from the four-way tie with a three-
putt bogey at 17, with Yim bogeying the clos-
ing hole. She charged a long putt that ran 6


feet past the hole, the missed the comebacker
Both Bowie and Park parred the first play-
off hole, Park saving par by rolling in a long
putt to send the players to the next tee.
On the second playoffhole -the same 17th
she had bogeyed less than an hour earlier -
Bowie hit a wedge that checked up just inch-
es from the cup. She tapped in for birdie, but
Park then matched her with a 20-footer
Park found the rough with her drive on the
third playoffhole, lashed her second shot into
the creek, took a drop and hit her fourth onto
a white towel well right ofthe green. She took
a free drop, chipped over the green, chipped
back on and two-putted her 8.
Bowie hit her first two shots into the fair-
way, then hit safely onto the green and two-
putted from 22 feet

Champions: Jacobsen holds off Irwin's charge


Associated Press

DEARBORN, Mich. -
Bouncing between the PGA
Tour and the Champions Tour
paid off for Peter Jacobsen.
Jacobsen made a birdie
putt out of a collection area
on the 16th where he had a
flashback to last month's U.S.
Open then outlasted Hale
Irwin by a stroke Sunday in
the final round of the Senior
Players Championship.
"It didn't scare me because
I did it all week at Pinehurst,"
said Jacobsen, who tied for
15th three weeks ago in the
U.S. Open.
The 51-year-old Jacobsen
won his second senior major
in less than year, finishing at
15 under after closing with a
6-under 66 on the TPC of
Michigan.
After Jacobsen's remark-
able putt, 14 feet up a steep
incline, he two-putted from 80
feet for birdie at the 17th to
surge past Irwin.
Jacobsen, who was three
groups ahead of Irwin, could
only wait and watch as the
three-time U.S. Open champi-
on tried to catch him.
Irwin came up inches short
on a 13-foot birdie try on No.
17. Then, after -a great


approach on the final hole,
the 60-year-old star narrowly
missed a 12-footer.
"I expected him to make
that putt, and we were going
to go back down 18 for a play-
off," Jacobsen said.
Irwin, who also lipped out a
4-footer for par on the 12th,
finished with a 70 after shoot-
ing three straight 68s. He fell
just short of his eighth senior
major, a victory that would've
tied Jack Nicklaus' record.
Irwin bemoaned missing
five key putts after making.
the turn, but especially the
near-misses on the last two
holes.
"Those putts were no-
brainers," he said.
"Unfortunately, I guess I don't
have a brain."
Five-time British Open
champion Tom Watson (68)
and Tom McKnight (71) tied
for third at 12 under.
Dana Quigley (73) was
among six players at 10 under
in perhaps the final event in
his ironman streak. Quigley,
playing his 264th consecutive
event and 278th straight in
events he has been eligible
for, will end the eight-year
run if his hip doesn't improve
because he doesn't want to sit
through a long flight to the


Senior British Open.
Jacobsen, who won the 2003
Greater Hartford Open for
the last of his seven PGA Tour
titles, won the U.S. Senior
Open early last August at
Bellerive for his only other
victory on the 50-and-over
tour.
Playing in just his 13th
Champions Tour event in two
years, he dropped to 9 under
with a bogey on No. 5 before
closing strong with six birdies
in a 12-hole stretch to take the
lead.
"I knew I had to be aggres-
sive, so I was aiming for the
pins," he said.
Jacobsen was proud about
outlasting Irwin.
"There's nobody you'd
rather beat than a great play-
er," he said. "Hale has domi-
nated the Champions Tour
like no one else will."
The fan favorite earned
$375,000 for his fourth top-six
finish in four appearances in
Champions Tour majors.
Jacobsen, Nicklaus and
Arnold Palmer are the only
players who won their first
two senior events in majors.
Jacobsen has played 10
PGA Tour events this year.
"I think that strengthens
the Champions Tour, to have


guys playing both tours," he
said.
The Senior Players was the
first of three straight
Champions Tour majors. The
Senior British Open is July
21-24 at Royal Aberdeen, fol-
lowed by the U.S. Senior
Open at NCR Country Club in
Kettering, Ohio.
"Those all come a distant
second to next week when I
walk my oldest daughter
down the aisle," he said.
Scottish Open
LUSS, Scotland Tim Clark
finally won outside his native
South Africa, surviving seven
lead changes in a wild scramble
among five players, then pulling
away for a 4-under 67 and a two-
shot victory in the Scottish Open.
Needing only two putts from 18
feet on the last hole, Clark made
the birdie putt to finish at 19-
under 265, tying the 72-hole
scoring record at Loch Lomond
set by Tom Lehman in 1997.
Darren Clarke (66) and Maarten
Lafeber (69) tied for second.
Lafeber, a 30-year-old
Dutchman with one European
tour victory, earned a spot in the
British Open as the low finisher
at Loch Lomond not already
exempt.

Saturday's Jumbles: GAILY EMERY LAWFUL MAINLY
Answer: What she got from the college jock in the
laundry room A "WRING"


Bridge


PHILLIP ALDER
Newspaper Enterprise Assn.

Self-proclaimed'bad-card hold-
ers are deluding themselves the
number of points each player is
dealt averages out. The key to suc-
cess at Chicago or rubber-bridge is
scoring up a game when your side
has 26 points. South in this deal
held great cards, but he had rea-
son to feel aggrieved.
South's sequence shows a bal-
anced 25-27 points. It is the worst
start to an auction because the
responder, with a weak hand
including a five-card major, does-
n't know whether to pass out three
no-trump or to transfer into his
major. Eric Kokish devised a solu-
tion. Over two diamonds, the open-
er rebids two hearts. This is either
25-plus balanced, or natural show-
ing a strong two-bid in hearts. The
responder relays with two spades,
then the opener bids a forcing two
no-trump when balanced, or any-
thing else when two hearts was
natural. It isn't a panacea for all
ills, but it is better than nothing.
Here, though, system makes no
difference.
Against three no-trump, West
led his fourth-highest spade.
Hoping that West had underled
the king and queen'i f spades,
declarer called for' dummy's jack,
but East covered with the queen.

South ducked, won the second
spade, and attacked clubs, but
East took his ace and returned his
remaining spade. Although'North
and South had 27 points, theywent
minus.
Note that if declarer calls for
dummy's spade -three at trick one,
East should put in his nine. When
dummy has one honor, third hand
holds a higher honor, and dummy
plays low,' (normally) third hand
saves his honor when he can insert
a nine or higher.

ear Annie: I am an African-
American female and have
never been faced with this prob-
lem, and I really do not know how to
handle it.
Recently, an older Caucasian lady
moved into our apartment
complex, and she has hung a
black-faced doll on her patio, -'
which faces the parking lot.
This doll is of the Al Jolson '
variety that was used in
times past to ridicule per-
sons of African descent. I
;have to pass her patio every
day and look at this atrocity.
"I feel dehumanized every
i time that I see this doll. To
me, this is the same as dis-
:-playing a Nazi swastika. My AN
:.question is, how do I ap-
: proach this woman and tell MAIL
her of my feelings? Upset
i in Louisville, Ky.
,- -Dear Louisville: Let's assume this
woman has no idea that this doll makes
her seem racist Knock on her door and
explain it to her, nicely. Tell her, "I'm
sure it isn't your intention to hurt any-
"one, so I though I'd let you know that the
doll on your patio is quite offensive.
, Would you mind putting it inside your
~;apartment?"
"If she refuses, talk to the landlord or
-l.the apartment manager You also can file
,a discrimination complaint with Ken-
tucky's Commission on Human Rights.


Dear Annie: My daughter, 'Alisha," is
going to be 5 in a couple of months. She
is advanced in reading (second-grade
level) and math. She also is good at
dance and piano.
I am struggling between putting her
in public school versus a pri-
vate school. I want the best
for my daughter and wish
her to have a lovely, memo-
rable -childhood. But I also
.,. want to keep some challenge
-. in her life.
What is your opinion on
Public schools and private
schools? Is there any special
after-school program for an
advanced kid her age in
California? Yi
IE'S Dear Yi: A private school
may give Alisha more indi-
BOX vidual attention and possibly
a more academically gifted
group of students in her classes.
However, she can miss out on some of
the diversity of a public school, not to
mention the various extracurricular
activities and elective courses that pri-
vate schools do not offer.
Most school districts around the
country offer after-school enrichment
programs. Ask about the GATE program
(Gifted and Talented Education), or
contact the California Department of
Education for more information
(cde.ca.gov).
Dear Annie: I read the letter from


"Caring Father," who thinks his son-in-
law may have ADD. I am a 50-year-old
female who. started taking medication
for ADD about two years ago. It hap-
pened when I started working again
after years as a stay-at-home mom, and
I discovered I couldn't stay focused on
one thing at a time. Within two months
of starting medication, my boss saw a
dramatic difference in my work
I can tell you now that I must have
had ADD when I was younger I couldn't
understand how school was so easy for
my sisters, while I struggled so much.
Now I know. My son has ADD and was-
n't diagnosed until he was 17 years old.
I couldn't believe that one little pill
could make that much difference in a
person. I think of all the fussing we did
all of his life and what an amazing dif-
ference medication made. He now is 30
years old and no longer seems to need
any medical help.
I would suggest "Caring Father" tell
his daughter to talk to her husband and
just see if he would talk to a doctor
about this possibility. A lot of people
with ADD or ADHD don't like to take
medication because it makes them feel
different than they are used to, but it's
worth a try, isn't it? Happy Cajun in
Louisiana with ADD
Dear Cajun: It can be quite difficult
for those with Attention Deficit to recog-
nize the problem and be willing to try
medication, but for many, the results can
be life-changing. Thanks for writing.

Times subject to change; call ahead,


Your Birthday: The year ahead could mark the
beginning of a good building cycle for you if you'll con-
centrate on laying a few good foundations for yourself.
Cancer (June 21 -July 22) It won't take a lot to be
successful today with objectives that can be accom-
plished with relative ease. However, it could be anoth-
er story for you when staying powers are called for.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Be careful to realize when
to stop selling today. You shouldn't have any trouble
talking your way into a good deal, but you could also
talk your way out of it.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Of course, be fair in
business matters today, but by the same token, don't
give anything away without first making sure there is
something of equal value in it for you.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Remember the saying,
"Pride goeth before destruction." Don't let pride get in
the way today and cause you to reject a good idea.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Try to handle impor-
tant business or family matters as early in the day as
possible, before you get tired.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) It's good that you
want to get matters cleared up today, but in your haste
to conclude important issues, you may have to be care-


ful not to leave any loose ends.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Look out for your-
self today, but do not do so in such a manner that things
are done at the expense of others.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Associates may be,
willing to go out of their way for you today, but you may,
not be willing to do so for them. What's good for the)
goose is good for the gander.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Where your majon
interests are concerned today, you might exercise two'
opposite extremes. You'll handle some situations mas-
terfully, while in others you'll make a mess of things.
Aries (March 21-April 19) Things will go quite
well for you today in involvements that include other,
but not when it comes to matters where your focus is
only on serving your interests.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) Both opportunities and
confusion are likely to be prevalent in your affairs today;
Do not let negative influences overpower the positive
things happening for you. I
Gemini (May 21-June 20) It may become nec-
essary to be tolerant and forgiving today with persons
who are important in your life. Should someone do-
something that displeases you, look the other way.
