As to becoming a Realtor
and making a ton of money
because of the booming
sales market, he said, it's
still the old 20/80 rule of

people are doing 80 percent

in a high attrition rate.

Judge vents about cooling


County says possible solution in place


DAvE PIEKLIK

The air-conditioning system at the
county courthouse is now equipped
with an alarm to alert repair crews of
potential problems, following a series of
letters from a judge alarmed at hot
courtrooms.
Citrus County Commission Chair-
woman Vicki Phillips said Friday that
workers from Carrier Corp. arrived ear-
lier in the week at the courthouse to
install an alarm on the air-conditioning
system to page a mechanic if problems


arise. The measure was put in place
after she received letters from Circuit
Judge Ric 'Howard complaining about
what he perceived to be air-condition-
ing problems.
However, she said she thinks the air
conditioning is working properly at the
2 1/2-year-old courthouse.
"We just have a highly sensitive sys-
tem," Phillips said. "It's operating
exactly as it was intended to operate."
Phillips said the system is designed to
shut down if it experiences power
surges, which she said happened in this
case. She said that prevents the system
from being damaged.

room B. The judge
wrote a letter to Phillips
on July 6 that said, in part, "I do not
know the mechanics of cooling a gov-
ernmental building ... I do know that if
this kept happening in a private office
building of similar size and configura-
tion, the persons responsible for the
maintenance would have been fired
long ago."

Reserves hot



topic at workshop


Tax rate worries

Crystal River

JIM HUNTER

Chronicle
The Crystal River City Council
will have a budget workshop today,
and one of the big topics will be the
ratio of uncommitted, reserves to
the general fund. The meeting
starts at 6 p.m. at city hall.
The city has. held a robust
reserve in recent years, and,
because of a loan and money yet to
be reimbursed from the federal
government for last year's storm
cleanup, the city staff is worried
that next year's tax rate will have
to go up to maintain the ratio of
reserves.
Council members have already
held a number of workshops, but
the staff said, under the circum-
stances, it needed some direction
before submitting its tentative
budget.
While that tentative budget
aimed at about an 11 percent
increase from 5.6 mills this year
to 6.19 mills, the staff said that to
keep the ratio of reserves the
council might want to consider set-
ting the tentative millage at 7 or 8

mills just to give the leeway for
increasing the rate if they wanted
to hold the ratio of reserves.
One mill equals $1,000 of taxable
value on property.
Once a tentative city or county
millage rate is set, it can be
reduced, but not raised. The coun-
cil will send out Truth in Millage
(TRIM) notices based on the tenta-
tive budget and hold public hear-
ings on a final budget, which has to
be adopted in September for the
Oct. 1 beginning of the new fiscal
year
New Crystal River Finance
Director Mark Thiele noted that
since tentative budget rates cannot
be increased once adopted, some
cities, such as Brooksville, routine-
ly set their tentative millage above
the target tax rate to give councils
leg room in developing the final
budget

LOS ANGELES Willy Wonka gave
movi'e-goers their sugar fix for the week-
end.
"Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,"
starring Johnny Depp as candyman
Wonka, had a sweet debut of $55.4 million,
helping Hollywood make a dent in a box-
office downturn that has lingered most of
3 the year.
Opening as a solid No. 2 was Owen
Wilson and Vince Vaughn's comedy "Wed-
ding Crashers," which took in $32.2 mil-
lion, according to studio estimates Sunday.
The two new movies bumped the previ-
ous weekend's No. 1 flick, "Fantastic
Four," which slipped to third place with
$22.7 million, lifting its 10-day total to
$100.1 million.
Overall business was up solidly, the sec-
ond-straight weekend Hollywood rev-
enues rose after a slump that had lasted
since late February.
After a slight uptick at the box office the
previous weekend, the top 12 movies took


TOP MOVIES
1. "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,"
$55.4 million.
2. "Wedding Crashers," $32.2 million.
3. "Fantastic Four," $22.7 million.
4. "War of the Worlds," $15 million.
5. "Batman Begins," $5.6 million.
6. "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," $5.05'million.
7. "Dark Water," $4.4 million.
8. "Herbie: Fully Loaded," $3.4 million.
9. "Bewitched," $2.4 million.
10. "Madagascar," $2.1 million.

in $151.4 million, a rise of 7.5 percent from
the same weekend last year, when "I,
Robot" premiered as the No. 1 movie.
"People are just waiting for the right
kinds of movies to come along, and they
will show up in big numbers," said Paul
Dergarabedian, president of box-office
tracker Exhibitor Relations.


Director Tim Burton's "Charlie and the
Chocolate Factory" is the second adapta-
tion of Roald Dahl's beloved children's
book, following Gene Wilder's 1971 ver-
sion "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate
Factory."
For Depp, whose earlier collaborations
with Burton include "Edward Scissor-
hands" and "Ed Wood," "Charlie" marked
his biggest opening ever, surpassing the
$46.6 million debut for his 2003 block-
buster "Pirates of the Caribbean: The
Curse of the Black Pearl."
The movie received high marks from
critics for Burton's fanciful visuals and
Depp's quirky rendition of the anti-social
Wonka, backed by a roster that includes
Freddie Highmore, Helena Bonham
Carter, Noah Taylor and James Fox.
While "Charlie and the Chocolate
Factory" locked up the family audience,
the R-rated "Wedding Crashers" gave
adult crowds a dose of raunchier humor.
The movie stars Wilson and Vaughn as
men who crash strangers' weddings to
pick up women.

Sex offenders face more limitations


Racy reading may

Associated Press

MIAMI Authorities are sending
convicted sex offenders to jail on pro-
bation violations for having racy mag-
azines such as Maxim, or sex manuals
such as the Kama Sutra, in the latest
crackdown on probationers in the


violate probation

state.
Officers searched the Miami home
of Andrew Calderon on May 18 and
found a sexy calendar, a racy poster,
and a few copies of Maxim magazine.
Calderon, 23, was jailed for six days
before a judge ordered his release.
Corrections officials said Calderon.


who was on probation for the sexual
battery of a mentally disabled rela-
tive, committed a violation by having
"sexually stimulating" material.
But in court papers, Calderon's
lawyer, Mel Black, described Maxim
as far from obscene. The men's maga-
zine contains no nudity, nor does it
depict sexual acts.
"This is beyond schoolmarmism
here. It's really mind-blowing," Black


said.
Circuit Judge Jacqueline Hogan
Scola will decide next month whether
Calderon's probation should be revoked
or extended, or whether the magazines,
calendar and poster were innocent
In another case, sex offender
Joseph Conte was arrested on a pro-
bation violation when authorities
found a copy of a sex manual in a
drawer next to the bed the former


schoolteacher shares with his wife.
Conte, 56, who had pleaded guilty to
lewd assault on two teenagers, said
his wife bought the book years ago.
Judge Rosa Rodriguez dismissed
the probation complaint over Conte's
copy of the Kama Sutra.
The state Department of Correc-
tions said it is enforcing existing court
orders as part of its "zero tolerance"
policy

New county offices delayed

by 2004 hurricanes
TERRY WITT

Chronicle

Katherine Allen is thrilled with her new office
complex on the hill overlooking the Lecanto
Government Center building, even though it
remained littered with homeless boxes and files
after last week's move.
The 11,500 square foot building will house
Allen's growing Citrus County Extension Service
program on one end, and the Health Department's
Environmental Service staff on the other.
And the building will officially open for business
at 8 a.m. today. The challenge for Allen is finding
space for all the boxes and filing cabinets. Every
square inch of the building will be filled.
"We're making dents. I can see progress in here,"
Allen chirped.
The building has been three years in the making.
Construction delays, caused in part by two hurri-
canes last year, moved the completion date back six
months. The structure is not completely finished,
even now.
R.E. Graham Contracting, the builder, finished
enough of the building to obtain a certificate of
occupancy, but the company hasn't paid some of its
subcontractors and has not finished some items
needed to wrap up the $974,000 project.
"The problem is getting Graham to the table,"
said Public Works Director Ken Frink "My concern
is many of the subs have not been paid and they did
great work on this project.
The county has withheld enough of Graham's
money to pay the subcontractors if Graham doesn't,
but the county wants Graham to make the pay-
ments.
Community Services Director Brad Thorpe said
the building was originally conceived as a way of
moving the Environmental Services people out of
their cramped first floor offices of the Lecanto
Government Building. But county officials realized
the extension service was also in cramped quar-
ters.
Thorpe said the size of the building was based on
the needs of the two agencies, the county's avail-

able funding the health department also provid-
ed funding and the size of the lot. He knows
there is limited space for both agencies in the
building, but he said there is room for some expan-
sion at the back
Allen has 3,950 square feet of space. Jim Rashley,
director of Environmental Services, has a tight
2,354 square feet for his office complex. Adjoining
Rashley's office is a 1,760-square-foot storage room
used mainly by the health department, but Frink
said it could be converted to office space if needed.
The building has 3,100 feet of common space
used by both agencies.
"It's tight, but it was based on the budget we had.
We felt that's how much we could build with the
funds we had and the land we had," he said.
The building has a drive-up entrance for rainy


weather. The front door opens into a lobby serving
both government agencies.
Allen is especially happy about the large multi-
purpose classroom space for the extension service.
A curtain can be drawn to create two large class-
rooms for educational presentations. Thorpe said
Allen considered the room of more importance
than more office space and was willing to make the
trade-off.
Extension agents have been added since the
building was first conceived, and Allen said region-
al extension agents also work out of the building.
Those are some of the reasons why she doesn't
complain about space.
"You know how it is, you never have enough," she
said.
But Allen happens to love the building, too.


Postal worker goes above and beyond for cancer


ASHLEY SORRELL

A small post. office in
Hernando is making a big dif-
ference in finding a cure for
breast cancer.
That difference is visible
upon entering the office where
the walls are decorated from
floor to ceiling with what may
seem like just small pink cir-
cles. But the significance of
these circles goes way beyond
appearances.


The Hernando Post Office
participated in a contest
among North Florida post
offices to promote and sell the
U.S. Postal Service's semi-
postal breast cancer stamp.
Those who purchased book-
lets of 20 breast cancer stamps
signed their names or the
name of a loved on a "Circle of
Hope."
The breast cancer stamp
costs 8 cents more than a regu-
lar stamp. The rate difference,
which is $1.60 from every book
sold, went to fund breast can-


cer research.
Hernando Postmaster Mark
Kelsay said the office generat-
ed in excess of $3,000 to fund
breast cancer research and is
ranked No. 7 among the 237
offices in the North Florida
district.
"I never imagined we would
sell the amount of stamps we
did," Kelsay said. "I thought
that we would do good to sell
some stamps."
Kelsay said the office would
not have sold as many if it
weren't for one postal worker


who went above and beyond
the call of duty by selling hun-
dreds of books of stamps.
"It is absolutely amazing
what Cathy (Ellas) has done,"
Kelsay said. "You never know
what an employee is capable of
until you challenge them. It
makes me proud."
Ellas said selling hundreds
of stamps was about finding a
cure for breast cancer and
funding the fight.
"It makes people feel good to
be a part of this," she said. "It
was as simple as asking people


if they want to buy the stamp."
Kelsay said the office sold
approximately 350 books dur-
ing a two-month period.
"We're just little big
Hernando," Ellas said.
Kelsay said the competition
ended June 30, but the office is
.continuing to sell stamps.
Since the breast cancer
stamps' release July 29, 1998, it,
has generated more the $45
million for research from the
sale of 606.8 million stamps
nationwide, according to a
Postal Service news release.

Potter book 'flying off shelves'


AMY SHANNON

Chronicle

Spellbound by the captivat-
ing lives of maturing wizards
and witches, hundreds of Harry
Potter fans got their imagina-
tion fix this weekend, picking
up a copy of the newest book in
J.K Rowling's popular series.
"Harry Potter and the Half-
Blood Prince" is author
Rowling's sixth book in the
Harry Potter series, which has
made publishing history, build-
ing a solid fan base with chil-
dren and adults since its intro-
duction in 1997.
"(Saturday) was so huge,"
Crystal River Mall's Walden-
books manager Nancy Chytka
said Sunday morning. "It was a
grand day. (Now) it's pretty
picked clean."
Chytka said the store decid-
ed to open at 8 a.m. Saturday
instead midnight when


copies of the book were
allowed to be released -
because some Harry Potter
fans they surveyed said they
wouldn't be up at midnight
But by 8 a.m. Saturday, a line
of about two dozen people,
anxious to buy the book, had
formed outside the store's gate.
"(Saturday), there was a girl
standing with her mother just
flipping through it in line ... all
of a sudden, she yells 'Oh, my
God,"' Chytka said. "Then her
mom said, 'Don't tell me.' I
guess there was something that
just stood out and caught her
by surprise."
And hundreds of local fans
already had the deal sealed -
some reserved it as long as two
years ago when the fifth Harry
Potter book went on sale,
Chytka said.
Chytka said she couldn't
reveal how much extra busi-
ness the store has done with
the book's release, but said
they were very busy Saturday,


selling "hundreds" of copies of
"Half-Blood Prince."
As of Sunday, the store still
had some copies available,
though Chytka said Walden-
books plans to replenish its
supply of the book as early as
today.
Worldwide, Harry Potter
books have become a global
phenomenon, selling 270 mil-
lion copies in 62 languages and
inspiring a series of movies,
according to the Associated
Press.
Chytka said she thinks the
series' popularity is rooted not
only in the fact that it's well
written, but also in Rowling's
ability to connect readers to
the characters.
"Everybody can relate,"
Chytka said. "You follow them
through their maturations. You
see them grow as wizards and
witches. It's about people ... their
hopes, dreams and tragedies.
And it's written for children, but
adults are reading it"

Sasada said. "Currently, there
are three to four hotels being
booked and Dairy Queen was

Paul Coleman, owner of
Dairy Queen near Bicenten-
nial Park in Crystal River, said
his business has picked up
during the weekend, but he
thinks it's about location.
"Dairy Queen is the first and
last restaurant they see when
they enter and exit the park,"

chauffeured around to look at

He said Realtors today have
to be willing to invest in tech-
nology and they have to basi-
cally fund and run their own
business. Annual and monthly
fees, dues and marketing
costs, not to mention routine
mandatory continuing educa-
tion, are expensive, he noted.
As the prices of land and
homes have skyrocketed in the
past year and a half to two
years, a number of things have
happened as the sales activity
has picked up, Wade said.
First, there are more
Realtors. Second, about 10 to
12 new brokerages have been
set up in the county, and local
brokerages have expanded.
Third, the Board of Realtors
has seen an influx in new
members from out-of-county
brokerages, for example, from
South Florida, who want
access to the board's county

Kelly and Steve Cutter came
to Crystal River from Pinellas
County to watch their daugh-
ter play in the tournament.
During their three-day stay
in town, they said they
enjoyed eating at ABC Pizza
and were thinking about rent-
ing a pontoon boat.
"It's pretty here," Kelly
Cutter said. "I like the area
and would like to buy property
here."
Kelly Cutter said she likes
that there are fewer people
and it's more "country" than
Pinellas County.
"It's not bad, but there's not
a whole lot to do," Steve Cutter
said.
Linda Miller came for the

That's because they see a
hot market with a supply of
lots and homes at reasonable
prices compared to such
places as Port St. Lucie or
Hialeah, where there is little
developable land left and
where prices are extremely
high. They have investors who
want to tap into the Citrus
market.
There are several hundred
out-of-county members of the
board now, and they are active
in buying and selling for
investor clients, especially
lots.
"This land is being bought
and sold time and time again,"
he said. Lots sit on the market
a month or less, he added.
This "flipping" of lots by
investors, as it is called, gets so
intense that sometimes the lot
is basically sold before it's
closed on.
Wade said he estimates
about 40 percent of lot buying
is coming from South Florida
interests.
He subscribes to a "limited
bursting bubble" theory of
real estate. By that, he means
there are pockets across the
nation that may see the real

doesn't see that in most of
Florida, particularly in Citrus.
While he said the bubble
may break in some places that
have gotten extreme, like San
Francisco Bay, for example,
where a regular home sells -
only with very creative financ-
ing for $750,000 after only
an hour on the market, he
doesn't see that happening
here where the baby boomers
are expected to keep buying


for retirement.
Still, it's not easy money, as
some may think, he said. As for
advice for any prospective
Realtors, Wade said they bet-
ter be ready to invest a lot of
time and money and to work
very hard if they want to suc-
ceed, because it's very com-
petitive.
"There's a limited amount

BUDGET
Continued from Page 1A

week that before the staff actu-
ally submitted the tentative
budget, it needed some direc-
tion about whether the council
wanted to keep the ratio of
reserves to general fund budg-
et
About $475,000 in federal
reimbursement for storm
cleanup and about half a
$424,000 loan to the
Community Redevelopment
Agency for purchase of the
Conklin property are yet to be
repaid back into the reserve
funds, and that would affect
the ration of reserves.



BOMBERS
Continued from Page 1A

Another suicide car bomber
missed a U.S. convoy but blast-
ed two minibuses, killing six
civilians and wounding nine
in Mahmoudiya, about 20
miles south of Baghdad, police
Capt Rashid al-Samarie said.
The U.S. command said in a
statement Sunday that the two
Americans were killed in
bombings the day before -
one in Iskandariyah, 30 miles
southeast of Baghdad, and the
other near Kirkuk, 180 miles
north of the capital. Two sol-
diers were wounded in the
Kirkuk attack, the military
said.
In Baghdad, the head of
Iraq's Special Tribunal
announced the first criminal
case has been filed against
Saddam Hussein, stemming
from the 1982 massacre of an
estimated 150 Shiites in retali-
ation for a failed assassination
attempt.
Raid Juhi, chief judge of the
Iraq Special Tribunal, said the
investigation into the July 8,
1982, massacre in Dujail, 50
miles north of Baghdad, has
been completed, and the case
was referred to the courts for
trial. The step roughly corre-
sponds to an indictment in the
U.S. legal system.
The date for the trial of
Saddam and three others was
expected to be determined in


This year's audit of the city
finances noted that the uncom-
mitted reserves were $3.7 mil-
lion, or 85 percent of the gener-
al fund spending.
That has gotten the attention
of Crystal River CPA Phil
Price, who served on the coun-
cil in the mid 1990s. He thinks
the ratio is way too high.
"They could go 10 months
without spending a dollar," he
said of this year's uncommitted
reserve amount.
Price said 20 percent is
about the average reserve for
most cities and that keeping a
30 percent reserve would still
let the council spend $2 million
to give taxpayers some relief in
their tax rate. He said the
council used reserves to offset


"the coming days," Juhi said.
If convicted, the four could
face the death penalty.
Some U.S. officials have qui-
etly urged the Iraqis to pro-
ceed carefully in prosecuting
Saddam for fear a trial could
further enflame tensions at a
time the Shiite-led govern-
ment is trying to lure Sunnis
away from the insurgency.
Those overtures have been
impeded by a sharp rise in sui-
cide bombings, which have
taken a toll on Iraqi civilians.
More than 60 people have died
in Baghdad alone since Friday.
The weekend's most devas-
tating attack occurred in
Musayyib, 40 miles south of
Baghdad, where a suicide
bombing ignited a fuel truck in
front of a Shiite mosque as
thousands were strolling
through nearby markets in the
cool of the evening or heading
for sunset prayers.
The Iraqi government
reported Sunday that the
death toll stood at "more than
90," and hospital officials said
more than 150 were injured. It
was the second deadliest sin-
gle bombing strike since the
Saddam Hussein was driven
from power in April 2003 -
exceeded only by a Feb. 28 sui-
cide car bombing in Hillah
that killed 125.
An Aug. 29,- 2003, car bomb
outside a mosque in Najaf
killed more than 85, but a
definitive death toll was never
released.


the tax rate when he was on the
council.
"It's been a contentious
issue," he allowed, adding,
"but 85 percent is too much."
Price, who is on the commit-
tee working to put dissolution
of the city to a referendum,
said, "They don't need a tax
increase. They need a tax cut."
Thiele noted that the city
had lost about $173,000 in tax
revenue with the recently
annexed area being lost in a
court challenge.
The increase in total valua-
tion of property in the city was
about 6 percent, or $133,000 in
tax revenue.
City Manager Phil Deaton
was on vacation and unavail-
able for comment.

attacker detonated

"The enemies of freedom
and humanity in Iraq hav6
committed a new ugly crime
that shows their bankruptcy as
they target our innocent civil-
ians in the Mussayib district
killing more than 90 people,"
the government said in a state-
ment Sunday.
"The Iraqi government con-
demns this brutal attack and
promises the Iraqi people it
will continue to tighten the
grip on the terrorist organiza-
tion by improving our armed
forces and regaining control of
security."

JUDGE
Continued from Page 1A

In her July 8 letter to Howard,
Phillips apologized for the
inconvenience, while explain-
ing that the air conditioners
shut down if surges occur dur-
ing storms.
'As you know, we do not have
a staff presence in the court-
house over the weekend and no
one would have knowledge of
such failures until personnel
begin coming into the court-
house on Monday mornings."
Phillips wrote that she would
have County Administrator
Richard Wesch look at any tech-


tims. One weeping man struck
himself in the head as a sign of
grief. A woman shrouded in
black screamed as she walked
by the bombing site.
Several men carried wood-
en coffins on their shoulders,
leaving the scene where near-
ly all building fronts had been
damaged. One charred shoe
was left in the street, near a
pool of dried blood mixed with
ashes. A blackened bicycle
also lay abandoned close to a
truck hitched to a fuel tanker
that may have fed the blaze.
In a message of condolence,

nology to "lessen potential air-
conditioning system failures"
that might occur.
In a follow-up letter dated
July 11, Howard suggested an
automatic control or gauge for
"remote monitoring" of the air-
conditioning system. He sug-
gested having a meeting to dis-
cuss the matter, indicating he
would ask several questions at
that meeting, including if other
government buildings experi-


said that "after running out of
their pretexts of resisting the
occupation," the insurgents
"have been targeting religious
places, children, oil and water
facilities and Iraqi soldiers."
Witnesses and police gave
conflicting accounts of the
bombing since many of those
who were close by doubtless
perished in the inferno. Most
said a fuel tanker was moving
slowly in the center of the
town when the blast occurred,
but a tanker truck in the area
was mostly intact Sunday.

While Phillips said she had
not prepared a response letter

meeting was being considered
with Howard.

ty was going to try to answer his
questions "as best as we can."

Death
ELSEWHERE

Pietro Consagra
SCULPTOR
ROME Pietro Consagra,
an Italian abstract sculptor
known for his works in iron
and bronze, died Saturday at
his home in Milan. He was 84.
Gabriella di Milia, the sculp-
tor's wife, said he died in his
sleep.
Consagra was best known for
metal or bronze sculptures in
abstract shapes, often reliefs
suggesting the encounter of
several figures. He also worked
with wood and stone.
He was among "those great
artists who successfully sought
to modernize Italian art,"
Gianni Borgna, Rome's top cul-
ture official, told the ANSA
news agency.
Born in Mazara del Vallo, a
small town in western Sicily,
Consagra moved to Rome in
the mid-1940s and co-founded
a group named "Forma," or
"Shape," which promoted
abstract art. Consagra's sculp-
tures can be seen in many
European plazas, including in
Rome and Strasbourg.

Goats paid to picnic
at park canyon
LOS ANGELES The latest
workers at San Pedro's Peck Park
Canyon may have spent most of
their time on the job eating, but offi-
cials were pleased with the end
results.
For the past two weeks, goats
have been grazing on 12 acres of
brush at the canyon, reducing the
threat of wildfires.
'The goats were happy, the city
was happy and the park looks
beautiful. We look forward to wel-
coming them back," Councilwoman
Janice Hahn said.
The animals didn't work for free,
either.
The city's pilot program brought
in 143 goats last month to clear
away the brush. Oregon-based
Nanny & Billy's Vegetative
Management was paid $11,500 to
clear the park's Hernandez Ranch
area in advance of the wildfire sea-
son.
"Basically, the department likes


the goat idea," area recreation and
parks superintendent Ron
Berkowitz said.
Duct tape goes
to the prom
FORREST CITY, Ark. It took
25 rolls of duct tape and more than
four weeks of work, but two high
school students earned $2,500 col-
lege scholarships after donning for-
mal wear made from the adhesive
to their prom.
Krystal Long and Casey
Isringhouse, both 18, won the 2005
Stuck at Prom scholarship contest.
The award goes to a couple who
attends the prom dressed entirely
in duct tape.
Long's dress, a two-piece
design, was inspired by Pablo
Picasso's "Girl Before a Mirror"
painting. Isringhouse wore a tuxe-
do with similar patterns.
The couple said the outfits were
extremely hot and heavy, but the
crowd's reaction was worth the
trouble.
"Everyone loved the outfits and


couldn't believe they were actually
made of duct tape," Long said.
The pair from Forrest City was
selected as best dressed from
more than 260 couples from 44
states and Canada. The contest
was run by Duck brand tape.
April Fool not
humming
LOS ANGELES Shannon
Castillo was less than pleased
when she took possession of the
new Hummer she won in a radio
contest.
Instead of the muscular Hummer
H2 vehicle she expected, Castillo
got a radio-controlled toy model.
It was an April Fool's Day prank.
"I just couldn't believe that they
would actually humiliate someone
like that," Castillo said.
Castillo, 25, has sued radio sta-
tion KBDS over the weeklong "con-
test" in which listeners were sup-
posed to track the number of miles
two H2s traveled around town.
She said she hired a baby sitter
for her two children so she could


arrive at the station at 6 a.m. on
the day of the giveaway, April 1.
After she waited for two hours, she
said, a DJ pulled up in the back of
a truck and handed her and anoth-
er listener the toys.
The station did not return a call
for comment Wednesday.
The lawsuit, filed June 21, seeks
$60,000 about the cost of a real
H2.
Tellers bust robber's
fifth attempt
OAKLAND, Calif. Stephen
Holloday has a familiar face at
least to tellers at one downtown
Oakland bank.
Police say he robbed the same
bank four times between March 9
and May 23, but on his fifth attempt
this month, a teller recognized him
and alerted another co-worker who
had been robbed previously by
Holloday.


I David Ditchfield
Audioprosthologist

Inverness 726


The two confronted the man,
who panicked and fled, according
to Oakland police Sgt. George
Phillips. He was arrested a short
time later on a street not far from
the Summit Bank, the evidence -
a demand note still in his pock-
et.
"He was a creature of habit,"
Phillips said. "He had a penchant
for doing the same bank over and
over."
Holloday also is a suspect in at
least seven San Francisco bank
robberies, including one branch he
allegedly hit five times, authorities
said.
Utility bills woman

MONDAY, JULY 18, 2005 7A

The city's utility department
claimed Cook used 10 million gal-
lons of water last month, charging
her $29,787 for water, $43,581 for
sewer, plus $893 for municipal tax.
"Luckily, when I opened the bill, I
was sitting down," Cook said. "I
could have filled every pool in
southern Illinois and still not used
that much water."
Cook presented the bill to a pub-
lic works employee at City Hall.
Officials quickly determined the
whopping fee was the result of a
broken meter and issued a correct-
ed bill for $32.66 waiving Cook's
monthly water and sewer charges
for her troubles.
"My daughter asked me if I was
hoarding water during the drought,"
Cook said. "I told her I would, but I
don't know where I would find 10
million gallon jugs."

BUI arrests an


indicator of need



for more patrols


Five partying boat opera-
tors learned the error of
their ways this past July
Fourth weekend. Their drinking
earned them arrests for boating
under the influence in Citrus
County waters.
Those five arrests earned
Citrus the dubious distinction of
being No. 1 in the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's 17-
country North Cen- THE i
tral Region when it
comes to BUI's that Boating
weekend. influx
Water is an unfor-
giving environment. OUR 0
Adding more than a Boater
modest amount of exercise
booze to an on-the- law enf(
water excursion can must be
and does spell
calamity for cap-
tains, passengers and those in
their path.
It's understandable that the
combination of recreational
activities boating and drink-
ing would be likely allies for
some, but it's dangerous.
Captains must accept their

Votes for victims S 0
Whether you like Bill or
Hillary Clinton, you have to
admit there is nobody
smarter when it comes to
campaigning for office,
There is a book out, criti-
cizing Hillary Clinton, writ-
ten by an author who is CALL
very liberal. The book is
printed by the most liberal 563"
printing house in the coun-
try. This book will make
Ms. Clinton look like a victim. You
know that they know the Americans
and that we love the-un/derdog and,
we will vote for the victim.
Government approval
According to the U.S. Department
of Education, Oral Roberts
University has no accredited pro-
grams, such that any student would
be eligible for federal aid and
grants. Therefore, Oral Roberts does
not have official, 100 percent
accreditation. They may have it
from some little society, but not
from the U.S. government, which
oversees secondary school educa.
tion.
One culprit
It's about time President Bush
gets off his ego trip, and gets out of
Iraq and other places that don't
mean a darn to us. They aren't the
ones causing the trouble; it is only
one person, let them go after him.
Time to unite
We are led by the president we
have, let us unite behind him. The
British people now (understand) the
quote, "We are fighting them over
there, so we don't have to fight
them over here." If you'think al-
Qaida is not going to strike us hard,
for the personal hatred they have of
our president, before he leaves
office, then I will sell you the bridge
I've got in Arizona.
Wait till it's over
I am going to try and sound off
one more time to the Chronicle. I
am reading the Hot Corner about
Iraq, and I cannot believe all the
idiots that think they would rather
fight the terrorists here at home
rather than in Iraq. We don't need
to bring our soldiers home until it is
over, over there.


responsibility and keep their
wits about them.
While the Citrus County July
Fourth weekend BUI's did not
involve accident or injury, two
others in the FWC North Central
Region did both serious.
Those at the helm must be
mindful that they are responsi-
ble for all on board and all in
their path. It goes without say-
ing, there are no
SSUE: brakes on boats.
While the FWC
under the arrests sent a mes-
Aence. sage loud and clear,
other local law
PINION: enforcement agen-
s should cies should step up
* caution; efforts to minimize
orcement BUI's and, in gener-
vigilant. al, irresponsible
boating. All agen-
cies that share in
the responsibility for the safety
of Citrus County waterways
should coordinate efforts and do
their part, with particular
emphasis on popular boating
holidays and other times when
the high volume of water traffic
increases the odds for tragedy.

S Front page news
Yes, I would like to say
that I enjoy the Chronicle
very much. However, I no-
tice that when Americans
are killed, in is on the back
'^ page of the 'A' section of
i" the paper. But when some-
one from overseas gets
0(579 killed, it is on the front
page. I think our own peo-
ple deserve to be on the
front as much as others.
End the war
May God bless all you people that
call the Sound Off, in reference to
President Bush to stop this terrible
war. I am 75 years old, and I have
never seen our country in such a
mess. Please, I beg all you people
out there to speak up, and let it be
known, we will not stop complaining
until this war comes to an end.
Boil water warning
I think that the city of Inverness
should be held liable for anyone
who gets sick from the bad water. I
feel that they should have used the
reverse 911 to let their customers
know about the "boil your water
until further notice" warning. By the
time it was read in the paper, much
of the contaminated water was
being consumed.
Spanish instructions
My wife bought a closet shelf
from Lowes. I tried to install it, but
the instructions were in Spanish. I
only had first-year Spanish in
school, so the shelf ended up being
upside down. I went to the
Inverness Library, and they correct-
ed it. Is this the USA?
Gas prices up
Friday, July 8, on my way to work
in the morning, taking State Road 44
West to south on U.S. 19, the gas
prices ranged from $2.18 to $2.21 a
gallon. On my way back home, about
nine hours later, the gas prices went
up between 10 and 12 cents a gal-
lon. I believe that is called price
gouging, because of the hurricane.
Arafat's money
Nine billion dollars to the
Palestinians, and they are not a
nation. Are they blackmailing us?
What has happened to all the
money given to Arafat?


Real men don't beat their sons,


onnie Paris and I
had the same father.
At least, that's the
way it felt reading the news '.
reports out of Tampa last
week. They told of how
Ronnie's dad his name is
also Ronnie Paris used to
hit the boy, throw him
around, bang him up.
According to testimony
from the man's wife and sis- Leona
ter-in-law, he did this to OTI
toughen the boy up, make a VOI
man out of him. Paris' fear
was that otherwise, his son
would grow up to be "soft," a "sissy."
Or gay
There are only three differences
between this little boy's experience
and mine.
One, the word "gay" wasn't a com-
mon synonym for homosexual when I
was a child. My dad's word was
"punk," which meant the same thing.
Two, in all fairness to my old man;, he
was nowhere near as harsh to me as
Ronnie Paris was to his son. My dad
never left me with broken bones, inter-
nal bruising or brain swelling.
The third difference is the most
important. I am alive. Little Ronnie
Paris is not. He died on Jan. 28, 3 years
old.
Last week, a Tampa jury found the
toddler's 21-year-old father guilty of
second-degree manslaughter and
aggravated child abuse. Afterward,
Ronald Paris Sr. father of the killer,
grandfather of the victim protested
his own blamelessness to a reporter


> from the Tampa Tribune. "I
raised my son in the right
way," he said. "We played
.. football, went fishing, went
to wrestling matches, box-
ing, all that."
.It's one of those Lord-
give-me-strength quotes,
because it manages to be
earnest, self-justifying and
clueless all at the same
rd Pitts time. To put it another way,
HIER it's telling what the eldest
CES Ronald Paris doesn't say
about raising his boy right.
He doesn't say he ever
talked to him. Doesn't say he ever
hugged him. Doesn't say he ever taught
him.
Don't get me wrong. There is nothing
wrong with fishing, football and other
"manly" pursuits. But while you're
tossing the pigskin around, maybe you
should explain to a son that the meas-
ure of a man is more than the ability to
summon or endure violence. And the
strength of a man has to include the
strength to be tender sometimes, espe-
cially when confronted with a tiny life
that looks to you for protection and
guidance.
Maybe it's not too much to ask also
that a father teach his son that "gay" is
not something you can knock out of a
child. Nor should you want to.
A story by way of illustration: I have
a younger brother. By the time he was
a toddler, my father had given up on
me, resigned himself that his bookish
and unathletic oldest child was
doomed to punkdom. So Dad decided


he'd save my brother from that fate. He
took him under his wing and taught
him every manly heterosexual art and
vice he could.
I'll give you one guess which of my
father's sons -went to the gay pride
beach party a few years back.
It's probably a sign of God's mercy
that our father did not live long
enough to learn.
Too bad there wasn't a little mercy
for the youngest Ronnie Paris. Too bad
his mother now facing charges of
felony child neglect did not call
authorities. Too bad the state, which
took the child out of the home in 2002,
did not leave him with the foster moth-
er who loved him. Too bad he was
returned to his birth parents in mid'-
December. Too bad he was in a coma
by Jan. 22. /
It is said the Parises could not wake
him that day after he fell asleep on the
couch in a neighbor's home. His folks
had gone there for Bible study
Apparently, "Thou shalt not kill" was
not among the verses on the agenda. Y
Maybe you can tell that I take this
one personally. It's hard not to. Ronnie
Paris was terrified his child would
grow up gay. Now the boy won't grow
up at all. I
And I'm left to choke on the irony
Paris thought he was going to teach hig
boy how to be a man when, clearly, he
didn't know himself.

No more Couey!
Re: Thursday, June 9, edition, do
you think a full page, color photo of
Couey was such a good idea? Do we
need to honor this man ... ? (A color
shot, no less? And front page?)
What kind of a message are we
sending to our youth? They look to us
as role models our chance to fill
their inquisitive minds with good,
solid morals. That front page picture
of Couey does anything but that.
Children learn by how they live,
what they perceive around them.
Raise a child honoring violence, and
an aggressive child will result.
I have been a pre-K teacher up
north for 10 years. I can attest to the
fact that children who are allowed to
watch violent TV shows, such as,
"Cops," communicate with their peers
and teachers in a negative, physical
manner.
Yes, crime and violence sells (news-
papers). But let's practice good judg-
ment. Don't help glorify the crime by
such front-page spreads for our
children's sake!

Bad decision
I am writing to express my disgust
and disbelief at the Florida Supreme
Court's recent ruling that anyone,
anywhere can wear a shirt that would
imply that they are a law enforcement
officer.
In light of the recent child abduc-
tions and murders, I cannot believe
that the lawmakers would act in such
an irresponsible manner. We teach
our children to trust law enforcement
officers, and to seek them if they need
help. Now every pervert and creep in

the state can wear shirts that say
"Police," etc.
It is my opinion that the Supreme
Court has just declared an "open sea-
son" on our children and grandchil-
dren.
The media jumped on the eminent
domain bandwagon, that's all we
heard all weekend. Where is the out-
cry over this irresponsible ruling? A
ruling that stemmed from some indi-
vidual's "right" to wear misleading
clothing. One person's rights are more
important than our children's safety?
Am I missing something here? What
has happened to common sense?
Come on parents, grandparents,
everyone, let's not let this slip by
nearly unnoticed. Our children, our

Rude cartoon
I think "Family Circus" is being dis-
respectful in making fun of the "Pledge
of Allegiance." I think it is being disre-
spectful, rude and unpatriotic.
Especially since Flag Day... and the
Fourth of July (occurred recently), but
really that makes no difference, it
would be rude and disrespectful any-
ways. I know that sometimes comics
come from real life situations, and if -
that is true here I really think that Bill
Keane (the writer of "Family Circus")
needs to teach his kids how to say the
"Pledge of Allegiance" correctly.
I would also like to say that I haven't
found "Family Circus" to be funny for i
the past couple of months, and I really
think we should replace it with anoth-;
er comic in the comics page.

'Minuteman Project' has wide-ranging impact


Associated Press
MORRISTOWN, Tenn. A
volunteer movement that vows
to guard America from a wave
of illegal immigration has
spread from the dusty U.S.-
Mexican border to the verdant
hollows of Appalachia.
At least 40 anti-immigration
groups have popped up nation-
ally, inspired by the Minute-
man Project that rallied hun-

"It's like O'Leary's cow has
kicked over the lantern. The
fire has just started now," said
Carl "Two Feathers" Whitaker,
referring to the fabled start of
the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.
Whitaker, an American Indian
activist and perennial guberna-
torial candidate, runs the
Tennessee Volunteer Minute-
men, aimed at exposing those
who employ illegals.
* Critics call the movement
vigilantism, and some hear in
the words of the Minutemen a
vitriol similar to what hate
groups like the Ku Klux Klan
used against Southern blacks
in the 1960s.
The Minuteman Project has
generated chapters in 18 states
-- from California to states far
from Mexico, like Utah,
Minnesota and Maine. The
Tennessee group and others
like it have no direct affilia-
tion, but share a common goal.
"I struck the mother lode of
patriotism or nationalism or
whatever you want to call it,"
said Jim Gilchrist, a Vietnam
veteran and retired CPA who
co-founded the Minuteman
[Project 10 months ago. "That
common nerve that was bother-
ing a lot of people, but due to
politically correct paralysis ...
everyone was afraid to bring up
I-the lack of law enforcement"
At the Department of
Homeland Security, whose
authority includes patrolling
[borders and enforcing immi-
!gration laws, response to
!Minuteman-type activism is
guarded.

!shared responsibility, and the

cal role in helping to defend
the homeland," agency
spokesman Jarrod Agen said
from Washington. "But as far
doing an investigation or any-
thing beyond giving us a heads-
up, that should be handled by
trained law enforcement"
A group leading patrols of
the California border raised
concerns from the U.S. Border
Patrol last week when they
urged volunteers to bring base-
ball bats, mace, pepper spray
and machetes to patrol the bor-
der. They backed off the recom-
mendation, but insisted on
another weapon when they
started patrols Saturday: guns.
"The guns are for one reason

Associated Press

BIRMINGHAM, England Ten days
after Islamic radicals carried out dead-
ly attacks on the London transport sys-
tem, Britain's largest Sunni Muslim
group on Sunday issued a binding reli-
gious edict, a fatwa, condemning the
July 7 suicide bombings as the work of a
"perverted ideology."
The Sunni Council denounced the
bombings as anti-Islamic and said the
Quran forbade suicide attacks.
"Who has given anyone the right to kill
others? It is a sin. Anyone who commits
suicide will be sent to Hell," said Mufti
Muhammad Gul Rehman Qadri, the

md mortar attacks ahead of Israel's

rime Minister Ariel Sharon said all
traints are off and thousands of
aeli troops have massed along the

most serious threat yet to a 5-month-
truce that had drastically reduced
estinian-Israeli violence.

ry in the last four days. Hamas lead-
say they are retaliating for Israeli

wounded seriously in a Palestinian
mortar strike on a Gaza settlement
Soldiers and tanks were poised to
cross the Gaza border fence. Large-
scale raids often have followed rocket
and mortar barrages but not since the
truce took effect Feb. 8.
Sharon told his ministers at the start


that one suspected bomber, 30-year-old
Mohammad Sidique Khan, was investi-
gated last year by MI5, Britain's domes-
tic intelligence service, but was not
regarded as a threat to national security
or subsequently put under surveillance.
MI5 began evaluating Khan, a Briton
of Pakistani ancestry, during an inquiry
that focused on an alleged plot to
explode a large truck bomb outside a
target in London thought to be a night-
club in Soho, the newspaper said. The
private inquiry reportedly evaluated
hundreds of potential suspects.
The Metropolitan Police and a
spokesman for Prime Minister Tony
Blair declined comment.
The bombings have prompted the
government to propose new legislation
outlawing "indirect incitement" of ter-
rorism including public praise for


those who carry out attacks.
Nevertheless, Charles Falconer, the
Secretary for Constitutional Affairs and
Lord Chancellor, denied that the govern-
ment had not been diligent in screening
political refugees from Muslim countries,
making Britain a fertile recruiting
ground for Islamic terrorism.
"In terms of asylum, our policy is: If
you are in fear of persecution, you are
entitled to come here," the minister
said on BBC television. "Obviously, if
you then seek to attack the very state
that you come to, that gives rise to dif-
ferent questions.
"But I don't think we have been ultra-
liberal. ... What we have got to do now is
unify all the forces in our society, in
particular in the Muslim community,
against those people who are funda-
mentally at odds with our values."


of a weekly Cabinet meeting: "I spoke to
the heads of the defense establishment
... arid informed them that there are to
be no restraints on our operations."
Despite the tough talk, there were signs
both sides want to maintain the truce.
Abbas publicly called on militant groups
like Hm-as and Islamic Jihad to stop
their attacks. Israelis said they are reluc-
tant to launch a strike for fear of being
bogged down before the evacuation.
"We are going to do our utmost to stop
these rockets," Abbas told a news con-
ference in Gaza. "I cannot promise how
much time it will take me."
The Palestinian leader blamed Israel
for the tension.
"Israel does not want peace or securi-
ty, but we don't want to be dragged to
their playground," he said. "Maybe they
are looking for an excuse to delay the
withdrawal."
Egyptian mediators were meeting
Sunday with Hamas in an attempt to
reconstitute the truce, and Secretary of
State Condoleezza Rice was planning a
quick trip to the region to try to salvage
the cease-fire.


Gas prices have tourists cutting back ... just a little bit


Associated Press
WASHINGTON Vacation-
ers coping with surging energy.
prices this summer could take
shorter trips or pass up that
extra souvenir or fancy dinner.
But most people do not seem to
be cutting back dramatically on
their spending or skipping hol-
iday travel altogether.
That helps explain why the
tourism business in the United
States is holding up well,
industry experts and econo-
mists suggest.
A recent survey by the
Federal Reserve found that
reports from the tourism and
hospitality sectors were mostly
positive. Tourism was "excep-
tionally strong" in New York
City. Atlanta, St. Louis and San
Francisco all saw brisk activity.
Money spent on air fares,
lodging, dining, souvenirs and


other tourism components rose
to $571.3 billion, at a seasonally
adjusted annual rate, in the
first three months of 2005.
,The most recent figures avail-
able from the Commerce
Department's Bureau of Ec-
onomic Analysis also show that
spending from January through
March was 6.6 percent higher
than the same period in 2004.
Overall economic activity
also is expanding solidly
despite high energy costs.
Oil prices reached record
territory in March and set a
closing high of $61.28 a barrel
in early July Gasoline prices
last week set a record of $2.33 a
gallon nationwide, the Energy
Department reported.
"There is clearly sticker
shock when you drive past a
gasoline station and see prices
above $2 a gallon. It concerns
travelers and justifiably so,"


said Allen Kay, a spokesman
for the Travel Industry Assoc-
iation of America.
"People will make some
changes to their travel plans.
They may not stay as long or
travel as far. But they almost
certainly will not cancel," Kay
said.
The association estimates
that people in the U.S. will
spend around seven nights
away from home on vacation
this summer, down from 7.6
nights last summer.
Travelers plan on spending
an average of $1,019 on their
longest leisure trip this sum-
mer, which would be 7 percent
less than in the summer of 2004.
Vacation spending is being
supported by an improved job
market, income gains and a
rekindling of home mortgage
refinancing, which is leaving
people with extra cash.

Another win for Stewart


Associated Press

LOUDON, N.H. Tony
Stewart climbed the fence in
front of the grandstand in what
has become his trademark vic-
tory celebration.
And a crowd of 100,000 at
New Hampshire International
Speedway roared its approval
Sunday as he grabbed the
checkered flag and pumped his
fist in the air just as he did
two weeks earlier after a victo-
ry at Daytona. He called him-
self fat then, and this time
heaped on more self-deprecat-
ing humor
"Trust me, I'll be glad to be
panting like a dog when I get
up there," he said. "It's some-
thing they like and I'll keep
doing it for them."
Stewart said he needs a per-
sonal trainer
"Yes, I'm still too old and too
fat to be doing that stuff," the
34-year-old driver said. "I'm
probably going to fall and bust


my butt before its over. I'm glad
they let me go through the gate
instead of climbing back
down."
Stewart started 13th and
wound up winning for the third
time in four races, passing at
will inside and outside in a
dominant performance in the
New England 300.
"It was as good as I thought,"
Stewart said of his car "This
thing was awesome from the
start As soon we got to the
front, I knew we had a great
car, but you don't know what
they're showing."
The win was his second on
this track and 22nd of Stewart's
career. He also won in Sonoma,
Calif., and Daytona, and has
posted finishes of second and
fifth in his last five starts.
"We feel like we're on top of
the world," crew chief Greg
Zipadelli said.
Stewart began a run of domi-
nance after passing Ryan
Newman on the 51st lap. But


Kurt Busch, trying to become
the only driver to win three
times on the track after sweep-
ing the races last year, got by
with 60 laps to go.
Zipadelli was asked whether
he thought Stewart had taken
too much out of his car
"He just told me to relax, that
he'd get back up there,"
Zipadelli said.
Stewart did just that,
reclaiming the lead after he
and Kurt Busch banged twice
five laps later. But he said he
wasn't as dominant late in the
race because the other teams
began adjusting and closing
the gap.
"I played with them for a
while," he said, alluding to the
first half of the event.
But he knew he had his
hands full with the Busch
Brothers later on.
"Kyle Busch was able to stay
with us longer," Stewart said.
"Kyle was almost good enough
to get by and Kurt did get by.

Tiger, from wire to wire


Associated Press
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland
- For Tiger Woods, there
was no time to pause and
pose when he reached the
top of Swilcan Bridge on
Sunday. A second British
Open title awaited.
Woods strode swiftly across
the stone arch, then removed
his cap as he walked up the
18th fairway and onto his
10th major championship, a
five-shot victory that marked
a defiant return to domi-
nance.
He never trailed over the
final 63 holes at St. Andrews
and turned in the first wire-
to-wire victory at the Open in
32 years. Anyone who ques-
tioned his swing changes
only had to look at his green
jacket from the Masters and
the claret jug he held aloft for
all to admire.
"I've been criticized for the
last couple of years. 'Why
would I change my game?'
This is why," Woods said.
"First, second and first in the

Earlier in the week, Jack
Nicklaus bid the majors
goodbye, stopping oi the
Swilcan Bridge for several
minutes in an emotional;
farewell.
Woods' crossing was also a:
goodbye to the competiJ
tion.
"He never looked like
there was a chance for him to
lose," Nicklaus said from his
home in North Palm Beach,
where he watched the final
round. "It was a pretty awe-
some performance."
With a strong cast of con-
tenders lined up behind him,
Woods played some of his
best golf of the week He was
the only player to break par
in the final seven groups. He
closed with a 2-under 70 for
the largest margin of victory

more indelible links to

o much for all that talk
about a "Big Five" in
golf.
It's still Tiger Woods and
everyone else.
At least until Jack Nicklaus
comes walking back over the
Swilcan Bridge through the
mist like a fugitive out of
"Brigadoon." And even then,
there are no guarantees.
"It's exciting to look forward
to some good years in my 30s,"
said Woods, who doesn't cross
that threshold until the end of
S December, "and hopefully into
my 40s."
With the same mastery he
displayed over the Old Course
five years ago, Woods finished
on the lead lap alone again.
And if not for two loose shots
over the final three holes at
the U.S. Open last month, he
might very well be zooming
toward the Grand Slam. Again.

Hampton struggles


Associated Press

NEW YORK Pedro
Martinez made quick work of
the Atlanta Braves.
Martinez threw an economi-
cal six innings Sunday, allow-
ing Atlanta just two hits on 61
pitches and then turned a com-
fortable six-run lead over to
the New York bullpen in what
became an 8-1 victory for the
Mets over the Braves.
"I had an easy day and I
deserved it, didn't I?" Martinez
said. "It was an easy day at the
office."
With Martinez coasting, man-
ager Willie Randolph short-
ened the ace right-hander's
outing, lifting him after six and
using three relievers to finish
off the Braves.
"I just wanted to get the
bullpen some work," he said.
"Even though he had a low
pitch count, anytime I can take
Pedro out leading 6-0, I'll do it
and that's what I did."
That was fine with Martinez
(11-3).
"I agree with everything they
do," he said. "I trust them com-
pletely. They know what
they're doing. I could use the
rest for the future so I can be
healthy for August and
September, when they need
me."


Mike Hampton didn't fare well in his first start sin
allowing five runs in just two innings.


Martinez had the Braves baf-
fled, throwing a variety of
pitches and changing speeds.
Atlanta manager Bobby Cox
was suitably impressed.
"Pedro touched 85 (mph)

Neither did the Mets, who
earned a split of the four-game
weekend series.
-_ They broke the game open
with a four-run second inning
against Mike Hampton (4-2),
and Martinez was on the way to
his ninth win in 11 decisions.
He struck out five and lifted his
National League-leading total
to 143. The only hits he allowed
were a second-inning single by
Adam LaRoche and a two-out
double in the fourth by Andruw
Jones. By then, New York had a
5-0 advantage.
It was the ninth time this sea-
son that Martinez allowed one
run or fewer.
Hampton was activated from
the disabled list before the
game and made his first start
since May 31. He lasted just
two innings allowing five runs

rescued from the scrap heap, pitch-
ing three-hit ball into the seventh
inning to help the Yankees pull with-
in a half-game of the Red Sox in the
AL East.
With four starters on the disabled
list, New York bought Leiter from the
Florida Marlins and he responded
with eight strikeouts and three walks
in 6 1-3 innings, allowing just one
run in his first AL start since 1995.
Johnny Damon doubled in the
eighth to extend his hitting streak to
29 games the longest in the
majors since Albert Pujols went 30
games in 2003.

NL: Cards sweep past Astros


Associated Press

ST LOUIS All-Star starter
Chris Carpenter outpitched
Roger Clemens to become the
NEs first 14-game winner.
The St. Louis right-hander
tossed a three-hitter and inad-
vertently played a major role in
his team's big inning, leading
the Cardinals to a 3-0 victory
Sunday that completed a three-
game sweep of the Houston
Astros.
In his last eight starts, begin-
ning with a victory at Houston
on June 3, Carpenter (14-4) has
allowed only five runs in 64 2-3
innings for a microscopic 0.70
ERA.
Reds 9, Rockies 4
CINCINNATI Javier Valentin
hit his first career grand slam and a
three-run homer, connecting from
both sides of the plate, and Sean
Casey and Ken Griffey Jr. also con-
nected as the Reds completed a
three-game sweep.
The Reds scored all nine runs
with two outs, all off'four homers.
Casey and Griffey Jr. homered
on consecutive pitches, starting a
six-run rally in the sixth off a
stunned Jamey Wright (5-10). The
right-hander had allowed only one


hit to that point.
Phillies 8, Marlins 4
PHILADELPHIA- Vicente
Padilla allowed two hits in seven
scoreless innings and hit a two-run
triple off struggling Dontrelle Willis.
Mike Lieberthal homered and
Tomas Perez doubled in two runs
off Willis (13-5), who had his second
straight poor outing and failed to
join St. Louis' Chris Carpenter as
the NL's only 14-game winners.
The All-Star left-hander allowed
eight runs matching his season
high and 10 hits in 5 2-3 innings.
Brewers 5, Nationals 3
MILWAUKEE Tomo Ohka
pitched seven strong innings
against his former Washington
teammates.
Ohka (6-4), acquired by
Milwaukee for infielder Junior
Spivey on June 10, picked up his
first win since he defeated Tampa
Bay in his Brewers' debut on June
14 a span of five starts. He
allowed four hits and three runs,
struck out six and did not walk a
batter.
Cubs 8, Pirates 2
CHICAGO Derrek Lee and
Aramis Ramirez hit solo home runs,
Carlos Zambrano pitched eight solid


innings and the Cubs beat
Pittsburgh.
Ramirez had three hits for the
Cubs, who took three of four from
the Pirates during the four-game
series and have won six of their last
seven games.
Lee's homer was his 28th, break-
ing a tie with Atlanta's Andruw
Jones for the NL lead. Jeromy
Bumitz had three of Chicago's 15
hits and also homered for Chicago.
Giants 4, Dodgers 1
LOS ANGELES Michael
Tucker hit a three-run homer with
two outs in the ninth inning, Ray
Durham also homered and San
Francisco beat the Dodgers to take
three of four from the defending NL
West champs.
Dodgers closer Yhency Brazoban
(2-4) gave up the homer to Tucker.
Diamondbacks 6, Padres 1
SAN DIEGO Chad Tracy had
the first two homer game of his
career and Brad Halsey pitched six
strong innings to lead Arizona over
the Padres.
Tracy hit a solo homer in the third
inning off Tim Stauffer (3-5) and
connected against Chris Hammond
with a two-run shot that gave
Arizona a 4-1 lead in the seventh.

back to second after the ball
rolled underneath the fence
and out of play. Roberson
moved to third on a fielder's
choice and scored on a passed
ball.
Seminole made it a 3-2 game
in the top of third after
Williams had struck out the
first two batters in the inning.
Ashlee Kling and Alex Barshel
each drove in a run with a dou-
ble and single, respectively.
Dunnellon made sure that
Seminole wouldn't get any clos-
er than that


In the bottom of the inning,
Dunnellon broke the game
open by scoring five runs on
three hits, one error, two wild
pitches and a passed ball.
Sami Fagan led off the
inning with a single to left and
then stole her way to third. She
scored later on a booted play in
the infield. Molly Sumners and
Kylie Fagan both scored on
wild pitches, while Caylee
Underwood crossed the plate
on an infield single by Murray.
Murray scored on a passed ball
to make it an 8-2 ballgame.
Seminole's Erinn Camp
scored a run in the fourth, but
it didn't matter as Dunnellon
notched three more runs in the
bottom of the inning. Williams


started things off with a triple
to right before scoring on an
errant throw. Sami and Haley
Fagan each drew walks and
both scored on a pair of field-
er's choices to put Dunnellon
up 11-2.
Sami Fagan capped the win
by driving in Jillian Morrow
with a single in the fifth.
Dunnellon and Seminole
were originally scheduled to
play last Friday, but inclement
weather forced a Sunday meet-
ing. On Saturday Dunnellon
split its two first games, falling
to Bayshore/West Tampa 11-1
and beating Oldsmar 6-3.
Bayshore/West Tampa won
the section by topping Oldsmar
1-0 on Sunday.

Dirt tracks upgrading for fans


Associated Press

ROSSBURG, Ohio -An elec-
tronic scoreboard and splashy
billboards have sprouted at
Eldora Speedway, a dirt race-
track in rural western Ohio that
has operated for more than 50
years with few bells and whis-
tles.
A track in Missouri is sport-
ing spacious state-of-the-art
bathrooms, fans at an Indiana
raceway can watch the action
behind glass as they wait in line
for food and a track in New
Jersey is selling roast chicken
and spaghetti dinners at a new
pavilion.
Traditionally known for hard
wooden benches, spartan rest-
rooms and take-it-or-leave-it
surroundings, auto dirt racing
tracks have tried to become
more fan friendly in the past
few years. Increasing competi-
tion for the entertainment dol-
lar from minor league base-
ball to cineplexes is forcing
the change.
"This industry has just taken
for granted people will show up
on Friday and Saturday nights,"
said Guy Webb, president of the
All-Star Circuit of Champions, a


Champaign, Ill.-based group
that organizes sprint-car races
in 18 states. "If we don't
upgrade, we're obsolete."
Dirt tracks began popping up
in the 1920s, but really took off
after World War II when veter-
ans returned from overseas.
Some races were held on horse
tracks at county fairgrounds.
Others were run in more primi-
tive rural surroundings.
"You basically plowed up
some dirt and invited the neigh-
bors," said Larry Boos, director
of operations for Eldora
Speedway.
Earsplitting engine noise and
flying dirt were part of the deal.
"Old-timers say you've never
really been to a dirt race until
you've got mud in your beer,"
said Bill Holder, who has trav-
eled to numerous tracks and
written books and magazine
articles on the sport.
Yet people in search of enter-
tainment have become accus-
tomed to clean, modern, com-
fortable facilities.
"You don't want to go into a
john that has moss growing in
it," Holder said.

Busch enjoyed


finishing second


Associated Press


LOUDON, N.H. Kurt
Busch was trying to became
the first driver to win three
consecutive races at New
Hampshire International
Speedway, but Tony Stewart
relegated him to second
Sunday in the New England
300.
Still, Busch enjoyed his late-
race battle with Stewart.
"If we ran up front for most
of the race, the two of us prob-
ably would have wore each
other out for quite some time,
and who knows what would
have happened," Busch said.
It was a great day for him,
however. The reigning
NASCAR Nextel Cup champi-
on move from 10th to fifth in
the standings. Last September,
in the first event of the 10-race
Chase for the Championship,
Busch moved from seventh to
second in the points by win-
ning here.
"I like to make the car versa-
tile here," Busch said of his
formula for success on The
Magic Mile. "You have to have
a car that can maneuver
underneath in the center of the
covers, and it's fun to race
like that."
Busch realizes Stewart, who
had bad luck early in last
year's NASCAR playoffs, prob-
ably will be a major factor at
the end.
"They've run into something
as of late," he said after
Stewart's third victory in four
races. "He's on a roll, and it's
hard to beat a guy when he's in
that zone."
The other Busch
Rookie Kyle Busch was hoping
to get the first victory of his
NASCAR Nextel Cup career, but
had to settle for a fourth-place fin-
ish.
He nearly passed Tony Stewart
at one point in the race, but wasn't
up to the task.
But it wasn't the give and take
with the race winner that Busch will
remember. It was the beating and
banging with Greg Biffle.
"He knocked me up the race
track a little bit," Busch said.

a half-lap later.
His Joe Gibbs Racing
Chevrolet led 232 of 300 laps
and beat the Ford of Kurt
Busch by 0.851 seconds on The
Magic Mile. It was the eighth
top-10 finish in the last 11 races
for Stewart, third in the
NASCAR Nextel Cup stand-
ings.
"Tony was just too strong
today," said Kurt Busch, who
overcame a spinout on the 35th
lap. "It's good we had a car that
could come back"
Points leader Jimmie
Johnson, twice a winner here
in 2003, finished 13th. He leads
fifth-place finisher Greg Biffle
by 77 points in the series stand-
ings. Stewart is 85 points back.
"They're on a tear right
now," Biffle said. "This is
Tony's kind of track."
Series champion Kurt Busch


"Coming down the straightaway,
I'm not normally a dirty driver, but I
decide to be that time.
"I don't think Biffle raced me as
clean as I want to be raced. I hit
him in the door going back down
the front straight."
But Busch said he won't hold a
grudge against Biffle.
"He's going for a championship,
and I don't want to screw him up,"
Busch said.
Angry McMurray
Jamie McMurray had some
angry words for Matt Kenseth,
claiming the former Cup champion
spun him into the wall between the
third and fourth turns on the 27th
lap.
'Where he wrecked me was
pretty deliberate," McMurray said.
"Matt must have been mad about
something earlier in the year."
McMurray said his Dodge was
considerably faster and that
Kenseth should have conceded
the position. McMurray said he
was nearly clear of Kenseth and
on the inside when contact was
made.
The carbon fiber seat and huge
headrest developed by Hendrick
Motorsports drew praise from
McMurray, who said the hard hit
hurt but that he was not injured.
Still, he was livid about Kenseth.
"I was just trying to be careful,"
McMurray said. "I didn't want to get
loose up underneath him and
wreck him. As it turned out, maybe
I should have."
Kenseth had no comment.
Pit Stops
Scott Riggs, Carl Long, Ted
Christopher and Kevin Lepage fell
to the rear of the field at the start
for making post-qualifying adjust-
ments to their cars. It really wasn't
a penalty for Lepage, who was
43rd on the 43-car grid ... The start
of the race was delayed for 24
minutes by rain, and the first six
laps were run under caution. It also
was put under caution for a shower
between laps 58 and 68 ... Rusty
Wallace extended to 32 the num-
ber consecutive races in which he
has been running at the end. The
streak began last August in Bristol.

moved from 10th to fifth in the
points race.
"I would have loved to have
won today," he said. "But we're
not on our last thread."
Stewart, the 2002 Cup cham-
pion, got his sixth career victo-
ry here in July 2000. A year ear-
lier while seeking the first
win of his career rookie
Stewart ran out of gas while
holding a substantial lead with
less than three laps remaining.
Third in the $5.1 million race
was Stewart's teammate,
Bobby Labonte. Next came the
Chevy of Kyle Busch and
Biffle's Ford.
Stewart averaged 102.608
mph in a race slowed 10 times
by 49 laps of caution includ-
ing once for rain, which also
delayed the start by 24 min-
utes. There were 14 lead
changes among nine drivers.
Kasey Kahne, Newman,
Rusty Wallace, Dale Earnhardt
Jr. and Matt Kenseth complet-
ed the top 10.


Cancerpatients

bittersweet over

Lance's last race

Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas Audra
Outlaw wakes up each day
with the infant son doctors
told her she'd never be able
to have.
She scoops up 3-month-old
Gage, clicks on the TV, and
mother and son settle back
into bed to watch for Lance
Armstrong's yellow jersey
streaking across the French
countryside.
"He's such an inspiration,"
said Outlaw, who has closely
followed Armstrong's career
since she was diagnosed and
treated for breast cancer.
"We're nervous, but confi-
dent he will win."
A cancer survivor,
Armstrong has inspired mil-
lions of patients with his six
straight Tour de France titles.
But for the 34-year-old
Outlaw and others,
Armstrong's quest for a sev-
enth is bittersweet: this Tour
de France will be his last
race.
"It will be interesting to see
what he does next," Outlaw
said. "It's fun to watch the
Tour, but I don't see us neces-
sarily watching with as much
enthusiasm as we do now."
Outlaw was diagnosed with
breast cancer in 2002. She
knew Armstrong's story, but
had not taken a keen interest
in the race itself until that
summer spent on the couch
laboring through chemothera-
py.
Every day, she turned on
the TV to watch each stage of
Armstrong's fourth Tour victo-
ry. She's been a dedicated fan
ever since.
"I could barely get up and
my hair was falling out,"
Outlaw said. "To get that little
bit of inspiration every morn-
ing .... That makes you say
'Yes, I can get out of bed
today."'

win an individual Tour stage.
At the finish, the two riders -
friends since they were teenagers
- hugged and Armstrong gave a
thumbs-up.
"This is a dream for me," the
32-year-old Hincapie said. "I'm
really in a state of shock"
The 33-year-old Armstrong
called Hincapie "my biggest guy,
my biggest friend on the team."
"We've been riding together
since we were 17," said the six-
time Tour champion, who fin-
ished seventh. "The guy is one of
the best riders in cycling. Period.
I'm so proud of him."
Usually, Armstrong's team-
mates devote themselves entirely
to making sure that he wins, and
have few chances for Tour glory
of their own. Their only wins
have been collective ones in
team time trials that Armstrong's
squad won for the third consecu-

Lance Armstrong overcame cancer and went on to become the
greatest bicycle racer in Tour de France history.


Outlaw's husband Blake,
also relied on Armstrong's
story to help him cope with
his wife's illness. Before
Audra Outlaw's diagnosis,
both had read Armstrong's
book that chronicled his can-
cer fight. Both reread the
book after her diagnosis.
"The first time I read it, it
was all about bicycle racing.
The second time I read it, it
was all about his fight," said
Blake Outlaw, who also
turned to the Lance


tive time this year.
But in the sun-baked 127.7-
mile trek up six mountain climbs,
Hincapie joined a group of riders
that broke away from the main
pack, which included Armstrong.
Hincapie said he went with
that group thinking that
Armstrong would catch up to him
later in the stage. But the break-
away group built a lead of more
than 18 minutes. At that point,
Armstrong's team manager gave
Hincapie the green light to ride
for himself.
"I just started thinking about
the win," Hincapie said. "For it to
work out is just a dream come
true."
Hincapie and Oscar Pereiro,
having shaken offthe rest of their
group, fought for the victory
alone on the final and hardest
climb to the Pla d'Adet ski station
above the Pyrenean town of
Saint-Lary-Soulan.
There, Hincapie beat the
Spaniard with a sprint finish,
shaking his head in disbelief as
he crossed the line.

One of those closest to
Armstrong's bout with cancer
continues to be amazed at his
ability to inspire patients.
Lawrence Einhorn, a pro-
fessor at the Indiana
University Medical Center in
Indianapolis, was one of the
doctors who treated
Armstrong in 1996. He is a for-
mer president of the
American Society of Clinical
Oncology and an expert in tes-


Hincapie is the only one of
Armstrong's eight teammates to
have been with the Texan for all
of his six Tour victories. The last
time the Tour visited Pla d'Adet,
in 2001, Armstrong won on the
way to his third Tour title.
Armstrong said Hincapie's vic-
tory capped a "perfect day."
"To win a stage in the Tour de
France is special, but to win a
stage like this which is arguably
the hardest stage of the Tour is a
big, big accomplishment He
deserves it," he said.
Hincapie's time was 6 hours, 6
minutes, 38 seconds. Pereiro was
6 seconds back Three other
members of their breakaway
group placed third, fourth and
fifth.
Behind them, Armstrong again
held off his strongest rivals -
Italian Ivan Basso and German
Jan Ullrich.
Basso was sixth, with
Armstrong right behind. They
both finished 5 minutes and 4 sec-

Lee gets first LPGA win


Associated Press

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia Meena
Lee patiently waited on the ninth tee
when play was held up for several
minutes while four ducks slowly wad-
dled across the fairway to one of the
large lakes on the picturesque Glen
Arbour course.
SThe 23-year-old South Korean rook-
ie was a lot more antsy a few minutes
later when she realized she was in
position to win the Canadian Women's
Open.
'"I didn't think about winning at the
start, so I felt very free," Lee said
through a translator. "Later, I was get-
ting nervous and very intense."
'After nearly winning twice earlier
this season, Lee overcame her back-
nine nerves to become the LPGA
Tour's record-tying fourth straight
first-time winner Sunday. She closed
with a 3-under 69 for a one-stroke vic-
tory over playing partner Katherine
Hull.
.Lee couldn't relax until Janice
Moodie finished. Moodie, the leader
after each of the first three rounds,
had a chance to force a playoff with a
birdie on the par-5 18th, but three-
putted for a double bogey that left her
three strokes back
"I couldn't watch her," Lee said. "I
was very nervous."
Lee finished at 9-under 279 and
earned $195,000 to jump from 13th to
seventh on the money list with
$643,933. The top player on the money
list in the field, she opened with
rounds of 73, 68 and 69 on the hilly
course.
"She played well all day and
deserved to win," Hull said.
Lee nearly won the LPGA Coming
Classic and HSBC Women's World
Match Play Championship earlier this
season. She tied for second in Coming
in late May, closing with a double
bogey to finish two strokes behind
Jimin Kang, and lost 1-up to Marisa
Baena two weeks ago in the match-
play final in New Jersey.
"I felt confident I look forward to
the future," Lee said.

"The golf ball was hit so flush all

one of those rounds that I will be
thinking about for a long time."
And he is not the only one.
"He's very complete," said Jose
Maria Olazabal, who played alongside
Woods on Sunday and was fortunate to
get his two Masters wins out of the way
before Woods hit his stride the first
time. "Right now, there is no competi-
tion."

player to make this tournament his first tri-
umph.
Bohn, in only his second year on tour,
had six birdies in a bogey-free round and
edged J.P. Hayes (66), John Rollins (66),
Ryan Palmer (67) and Australian rookie
Brendan Jones (68). Jones, who held a
one-shot lead entering the day, rallied with
four straight birdies on the back nine but
his erratic play early cost him a shot at the
title.
Ben Crane (64), Michael Allen (64) and
Mathias Gronberg (66) of Sweden were in
a group at 266.
The previous tournament record in rela-


cial Singh and Els claimed one each
to total three, Goosen added his sec-
ond and Mickelson won his first and
only.
Of the six players who slipped into
the trophy presentations while Woods
was off remaking his swing and getting
married, only two were well known
outside their own households: Jim
Fliryk and Mike Weir. For the record,
it's worth listing the others Rich
Beem, Ben Curtis, Shaun Micheel and
Todd Hamilton since odds are we
won't hear from any of them again.
So when a BBC TV interviewer
asked afterward what Woods thought
about all those pronouncements he
would never dominate again, he
should have said, "Who are you going
to believe, me or your lying eyes?"
Instead, Woods smiled broadly and
replied, "I can't say it on the air."
Still, he couldn't resist saying some-
thing.
"This is one reason why I made the
changes. This is the reason why I did
it."
Yet, as recently as the Masters this
year, Woods still had his doubts.
Coming down the stretch at Augusta,
Chris DiMarco turned the tables and
began stalking Woods. Tiger aban-
doned just about everything he and
swing coach Hank Haney had worked
on, and bogeyed the last two before
winning in a playoff. At Pinehurst, a
poor chip shot and a balky putter left
the door open for Michael Campbell.
He ironed out both those problems
before he arrived here.


tion to par was 22 under, set in 2001 by
Jeff Sluman and Paul Gow. The tourna-
ment record score was 265 by.Calvin
Peete in 1982. He finished 19 under when
the course at the En-Joie Golf Club played
to a par of 71.
Nine of the previous 10 B.C. Opens had
been decided by one shot three in play-
offs and this one figured to follow form
at the soft course, which allowed for plenty
of birdies.
A dozen players began the day within
four shots of the lead, and by mid-after-
noon six players were at 20 under and four
more were just a shot back.


It's small consolation for his shot at
the Grand Slam slipping away. But
Woods has now put together his own
"Nicklaus Slam," having won every
major from which Jack officially
retired. And his long-range goal sur-
passing the record 18 professional
majors Nicklaus owns is closer now
that the halfway point is in Woods'
rearview mirror.
"You know that it's going to take an
entire career," he said. "It's not going
to happen overnight. Jack took 25
years, I believe it was, to win all of
his."
Twenty-four years, actually, but
Woods might need the extra time.
History likely will show that the four
other great golfers who spanned
Nicklaus' era were tougher and a lot
more accomplished than the quartet
currently arrayed against Woods.
Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary
Player formed the original "Big
Three," but Jack squared off against
Tom Watson and Lee Trevino in their
primes, too. But the fields Woods faces
most weeks are deeper, and the pool of
talent includes players from the far-
thest-flung corners of the world.
"The drive is always to get better,"
Woods said, a statement he's made so
often it could serve as his mantra.
"You can always get better, no matter
what."

OPEN,

the impossible? He's on his
way."
Montgomerie provided the
oply serious challenge to
WVoods. He was only one shot
behind after a two-putt birdie
on, the ninth, and the frenzied,
flag-waving Scottish fans tried
to will him to an improbable vic-
tory
Woods was never fazed.
~0i a breezy afternoon, in con-
ditions so dry that the fairways
were faster than the greens,
Woods didn't miss a shot until
S his lead was up to six and his
name was being engraved on
the silver jug.
"My only bad shot was on 13 ...
and, I pulled it 10 feet," Woods
said. 'And that was it. I mean, I
hit the ball so solidly today, all
day.' It was one of those rounds
that I will be thinking about for
* alng time. I'm very thankful it
happened at the right time."
'With a 1-2-1 start in the
niajors, Woods regained an aura


about his play in the majors.
Even after he won the Masters
in a playoff, there were ques-
tions whether he could blow
away the competition the way
he did when he captured seven
out of 11 majors.
But that's exactly what hap-
pened on the Old Course.
He finished at 14-under 274,
and even though Montgomerie
and Jose Maria Olazabal each
got within one shot during the
final round, there was a sense of
inevitability.
Montgomerie shot 72 to finish
second at 9-under 279, his best
finish at a major since he was
runner-up at the 1997 U.S. Open
at Congressional.
"There is no disgrace finish-
ing second to the best player in
the world," Montgomerie said.
Olazabal lost his way in the
gorse and pot bunkers and
wound up with a 74, making a
birdie on the last hole to tie for
third at 280 with Fred Couples,
who finished his 68 before the
leaders reached the turn.
"It's hard, but I don't think it's
impossible," Olazabal said


about trying to make up a two-
shot deficit against Woods. "But
it's close to impossible."
Nicklaus won his 10th major
when he was 32, so the 29-year-
old Woods is ahead of pace in
his pursuit of a standard that
few expected ever would be
touched. Next up is the PGA
Championship in four weeks at
Baltusrol, where Nicklaus twice
won the U.S. Open.
"When I first started playing
the tour, I didn't think I'd have
this many majors before the age
of 30," Woods said. "No one ever
has. Usually, the golden years
are in your 30s for a golfer.
Hopefully, that will be the case."
The final round was hardly a
nail-biter.
Woods twice turned away
threats by making two-putt
birdies, then marched along as
a strong cast of contenders -
either major champions or
players who have been ranked
in the top 10 collapsed
around him.
Just think if Woods had not
missed those two putts on the
back nine at Pinehurst No. 2


last month, when he finished
two shots behind Michael
Campbell in the U.S. Open.
"He's awesome," Campbell
said. "I think these were reper-
cussions from a month ago
where I knocked him off his
pedestal for a week, which was
quite nice to do. He's come back
a stronger player and a better
player."
It was Woods' fourth victory
this year, and 44th in his PGA
Tour career. He is tied for sev-
enth with Walter Hagen on the
all-time list, and Hagen's 11
career majors is his next imme-
diate goal.
"It's just hard to tell what
Tiger Woods is capable of," said
swing coach Hank Haney, who
also felt some measure of vindi-
cation from a year of scrutiny.
"He's obviously a special play-
er."
Vijay Singh was in a large
group of players at 7-under 281.
He and Woods are the only play-
ers to finish in the top 10 in all
three majors this year But a
year that began with talk about
the "Big Five" is now focused on


No. 1.
"He's setting the bar so high
and he's so strong," Couples
said. "He's always the guy to
beat"
Monty turned in a gallant
effort to win his first major He
twice had eagle putts from 20
feet on the front nine that would
have tied for the lead. When he
tapped in the second one for
birdie at No. 9, he was only one
shot out of the lead and the
Scottish gallery began to
believe.
Woods was cast as the villain,
dressed in black pants and a
black vest over his traditional
red shirt.
Equipped with a two-shot
lead he now is 32-3 on the
PGA Tour and 10-0 in the
majors with a 54-hole Woods
played to the middle of the
green and was satisfied with
pars.
But even as Olazabal and
Montgomerie each got to within
one shot, everyone seemed to
know what was coming. None of
the 18 players who began the
day within six shots of the lead,


could make a charge, and
Woods knew it
Then came the decisive
blows.
Ahead of him, Montgomerie
just. went over the par-3 11th
green, chipped to 7 feet and
missed to make bogey. Monty
also missed a 6-foot par putt on
the 13th to fall back to 10 under
Olazabal drove into a cluster
of gorse bushes left of the easy
12th hole and made bogey,
while Woods' tee shot came up
just short of the green. He
pitched perfectly to 4 feet for
birdie.
Just like that, his lead was at
four shots with six to play.
There was no defining
moment, like his U-turn chip for
birdie at the Masters, nor was
there a late meltdown. Woods
was simply relentless to the
end.
More than halfway to
Nicklaus' benchmark, Woods
sounded as though he was just
getting started.
"No matter how good you
play, you can always play bet-
ter," he said.

The new


Taylor open to

idea of rematch

with Hopkins

Associated Press

LAS VEGAS After taking
away Bernard Hopkins' undis-
puted middleweight title with
a split decision, Jermain
Taylor wants a rematch as
much as Hopkins does.
For Taylor, who turns 27 in
August, there are many other
options. Yet he has no qualms
about getting back into the
ring with the 40-year-old
Hopkins, who plans to fight
only two more times and
now desperately wants one of
those bouts to be for the belts
he surrendered Saturday
night.
"He deserves that rematch
and the same thing is going to
happen," Taylor said. "It's
just going to be easier."
It couldn't be much more
difficult Taylor began well,
but Hopkins came on in the
middle rounds and dominat-
ed the late portions of the
bout Had judge Duane Ford
given the final round to
Hopkins instead of Taylor, it
would have been a draw; the
other two judges scored the
12th for Hopkins.
"I didn't win the fight like I
wanted to win the fight," said
Taylor, the 2000 Olympic
bronze medalist who is now
24-0 as a pro. "He's a smart
fighter In the rematch, I've
got to plan for that."
With a clause in the con-
tract guaranteeing a
rematch, both boxers can
begin planning pretty soon.
Hopkins, whose record
streak of 20 straight success-
ful title defenses was
snapped, is urging everyone
to watch the tape from
Saturday's match. HBO will
replay the bout this Saturday
at 10:15 p.m.
"Technology today can give
you the benefit of the doubt to
go back and reflect," Hopkins
said. "One thing about video-
tape is that it don't lie."
What Hopkins claims view-
ers will see is a dominant
performance by him in the


champ


Associated Press
Jermain Taylor, of Little Rock, Ark., raises his arm in victory after defeating Bernard Hopkins, of
Philadelphia, by decision after 12 rounds in their undisputed world middleweight championship
bout on Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.


second half of the fight.
Though Taylor admits
Hopkins came on strongly, he
scoffs at the notion that the
veteran won.
' "Bernard took his time, he
came on late. I feel I did
enough in those early rounds
to win the fight," Taylor said.
"I should have cut the ring off
a lot more, I should have.
thrown a lot more body shots.
I'll do those things more the
next time. I learned a lot in
the ring."
The crowd, loaded with
folks from Arkansas Taylor
is a Little Rock native was
in the challenger's favor,
especially early Chants of
"JT, JT" drown out support
for Hopkins until the closing
rounds, when Hopkins' fol-


lowers came to life as their
boxer did.
Oscar De La Hoya, who
promoted the fight, men-
tioned Oct. 1 as a potential
date for a rematch, but that
seems a bit soon. Taylor
needs time to heal from a cut
on the top of the head caused
by an accidental head butt. It'
bled for the second half of the
fight and seemed to bother
him at times.
In fact, it probably both-
ered him more than Hopkins
did until the second half of
the bout.
But when Hopkins got
rolling, he did some damage
- just not enough to over-
come Taylor's big lead.
"I don't think that was a
mistake," Hopkins said of his


slow start. "You only got 12
rounds in a fight, and if
Jermain Taylor won four
rounds and I won from
rounds six to 12, when one
round could easily been a
two-point round, do the
math. I don't believe Jermain
Taylor won a round from six
to 12. To make my point even
stronger, I believe that is one
of the two times he was back
in no man's land hurt and
bleeding."
Hopkins, of course, has the
most to gain from a rematch
after his first loss in 12 years.
The Philadelphian also
believes his sport will profit
from Hopkins-Taylor II.
"I'm not going to say deci-
sions are good for boxing," he
said, "but rivalries are."


Recruiting 'one-year' ball players


Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS Roy
Williams spent three years
recruiting Marvin Williams,
but coached him for just one
season before the freshman
forward left Chapel Hill, N.C.,
for the NBA.
The North Carolina coach
considers himself lucky to have
coached Williams at all. In
Marvin Williams' only college
season, he helped the Tar
Heels win a national champi-
onship and went on to become
the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft
"If you ask Roy Williams or
our staff or our fans, they're
glad Marvin came to school for
one year," Roy Williams said.
"I'm sure if you asked the same
people at Syracuse, they'd tell
you the same thing about
Carmelo Anthony."
One-year college players
such as Marvin Williams and
Anthony, who went to Denver
with the third pick in the 2003
draft after leading the Orange
to an NCAA title, could become
more common under the NBA's
new minimum age limit. The
rule requires prep players to
wait at least one season after
their high school class gradu-
ates before entering the draft.
Proponents say the new age
limit will help prevent young
players such as Indianapolis'
Greg Oden, widely touted as
the No. 1 college recruit this
year, from making poor deci-
sions and give them a chance to
experience college before
turning pro. He will attend
Ohio State.
But some aren't convinced a
short-timer is worth the invest-
ment, even for a team that
needs to rebuild quickly
"Some coaches would say
they would take a kid for one
year," said Arizona coach Lute
Olson, who lost four starters,
including three underclass-
men, after falling to Duke in
the 2001 national champi-
onship game. "But it's really
difficult to do that for a pro-
gram. I look at the program as
being more important than one
person."


Associated Press
Lawrence North's Greg Oden puts up a shot over Muncie Central's
Andrew Brown in the fourth quarter of the IHSAA Class 4A state
championship in Indianapolis on this March 26. Proponents say
the NBA's new age limit will help prevent young players such as
Indianapolis' Greg Oden, widely touted as the No. I college recruit
this year, from making poor decisions and give them a chance to
experience college before turning pro. He will attend Ohio State.


Critics say the new rule has
potential pitfalls.
Not all high school players
will go to college. Players could
opt for prep school, where
their weaknesses may not be
exposed; the NBDL, the NBA's
developmental league where
they would earn less money; or
even European basketball,
where they could sign lucrative
contracts and endorsement
deals.
And one-year players might
lack academic dedication,
which could affect a program's


annual academic progress.
The NCAAs new academic
measuring stick awards pro-
grams one point per semester
for each player who is academ-
ically eligible and another
point each semester for those
who remain in school. A player
who skips classes could cost
the program points; a program
that falls below the cut line for
two consecutive years risks los-
ing scholarships.
That's one reason the
National Association of
Basketball Coaches wanted a


rule requiring players to com-
mit for three years.
"We felt that if you had to
make a commitment for three
years that you'd take advantage
of your academic opportunity
and that if it was less than
three, your chances of return-
ing would disintegrate," said
Jim Haney, the NABC's execu-
tive director. "I think the aca-
demic part will hurt more kids
than we'll ever know."
Ramar Smith, a standout
from Mt. Clemens, Mich., who
participated in last week's
Nike All-America Camp in
Indianapolis, says some coach-
es have used the new rules to
ask for multiyear commit-
ments.
"That's really what it's all
about. They try to get you,"
Smith said.
Illinois coach Bruce Weber,
whose team was ranked No. 1
most of last season and lost the
national title game in March,
thinks the new age limit will
help college coaches retain
players.
'"A lot of kids think they're
going (to the NBA) and their
parents think they're going.
Someone in their neighbor-
hood told them they could go,
then they get to college and
find out they're not ready,"
Weber said. "Some elite kids
have that chance. But how
many, nine or 10? It's a small
number"
Roy Williams accepts that'
the lure of the NBA is too
strong for some players to
resist. He lost his top seven
scorers from this year's cham-
pionship team, including four
underclassmen Williams,
Sean May, Raymond Felton
and Rashad McCants who
declared for the draft
He'll take whatever time he
can get from future North
Carolina recruits.
"The NBA is not going to do
something to help college bas-
ketball. It's going to do some-
thing to help the NBA, and
we've got to understand that,"
he said. "I didn't know if we'd
get Marvin for one year, but I'm
glad we did."


NFL: Titans plagued


with off-the-field


problems, headaches


Associated Press
Jeff Fisher probably has
gone through a case of aspirin
during the offseason.
The Titans coach has had to
deal with one off-the-field
headache after another in
2005. The most recent came
.when top draft pick Adam
"Pacman" Jones surrendered
to police Wednesday on
charges of assault and felony
vandalism following a night-
club fight.
Jones' agent, Michael
Huyghue, wants people to
believe Jones is being picked
on because he is a celebrity,
saying, "There are certain indi-
viduals out there who are
opportunists, who prey on pro-
fessional athletes for financial
gain, and unfortunately, this is
one of those incidents."
But the Titans must think
there is something substantial
to the matter. In a statement,
the team said Jones "is going to
have to conduct himself
responsibly in all aspects of his
life on a consistent basis."
They have reason to be con-
cerned about the sixth overall
pick out of West Virginia.
Club owner Robert Gaddy
said in a court appearance that
Jones hit him and broke his
necklace after Gaddy asked
three of Jones' friends to leave
the club. Gaddy told police
Jones' friends "were smoking
drugs."
In April, Georgia authorities
investigated a report that
Jones was involved in a night-
club fight near Atlanta, but no
charges were filed.
His was just the latest mess
Fisher and the Titans have had
on their minds. Three other
Titans have gotten into trouble
during the offseason: receiver
Tyrone Calico, left tackle Brad
Hopkins and safety Tank
Williams.
Former Titans cornerback
Samari Rolle also was arrested
on a domestic violence charge
in February, while he was still
with the team. Rolle signed
with Baltimore after the Titans
cut him in a salary-cap move.
Calico, in his third season
with the Titans, was cited for
public indecency for having
sex with a woman in his sport
utility vehicle. Hopkins plead-
ed guilty to assaulting his wife,
and Williams was charged with
driving under the influence.
Though there always are a
few players who get into trou-
ble every year, the Titans have
had more than their share in
just a few months. They cannot
afford to have early troubles
with Jones, in whom the Titans
will invest not only money but
the future of their secondary.
Add this to everything else
the rebuilding Titans have
gone through surgery for
quarterback Steve McNair, hir-
ing Norm Chow to replace
offensive coordinator Mike
Heimerdinger, cutting high-
priced veterans in a salary-cap
purge and this year hasn't
started too well for Tennessee.
Go Girls
Israel now can boast about a
flag football champion. A team of
mostly Orthodox Jewish women
won the Flag Oceane tournament
last week, qualifying for the
European Federation of American
Football Championships.
The victory marked the first time
an Israeli team has won an inter-


national flag football tournament.
The team, with women ranging in
age from 14 to 26, was organized
in October 2003 after referee SteVe'
Leibowitz noticed a group of high
school girls watching a game at
which he was working.
Leibowitz, president and founder
of American Football in Israel,
asked them if they wanted to form
a women's team. They agreed.
The women on the team are
largely Israeli-born children of
Jewish immigrants and are highly.
religious. They wear shorts and T-
shirts over or under their traditional
garb, and some wear specially
designed skirts for modesty.
They also ensured there were '
no games on Saturday at the Flag
Oceane so they could observe the
Sabbath.
Over 100 teams traveled to Le
Havre, France, for the Flag ::
Oceane the largest and most
important open tournament in
Europe. The Israeli team beat *
Pygargues, France, 33-32 in over -
time to advance to the EFAF
championships, Sept. 16-18 in
Helsinki, Finland.
The team is a part of American -
Football in Israel, an organization.'
sponsored by Myra Kraft, wife of -
New England Patriots owner
Robert Kraft. ,
FBI Time
Any idea how it feels to be an
FBI agent? Ask Houston Texans'
long snapper Bryan Pittman.
Several Texans visited the FBt
Firearms Training Center near
Houston earlier this week, hoping -
to spend a few hours with the
agents and express gratitude for -
their service. Pittman, who owns-- -
two guns, took a few shots on th ,
shooting range.
"I didn't do, as well as I should
have," Pittman told the Texans' _
Web site. 'That was my first time
shooting an assault rifle. I was kind-
of nervous being in front of the FBI -,
team."
Steve McKinney, Chad Stanley,"
Seth Wand Jarrod Baxter, Fred
Weary and Todd Washington
joined Pittman at the center.
The FBI SWAT team presented
the players with a classroom brief-
ing and video presentation, then
conducted a demonstration.
Players watched as FBI agents
used live rounds to break up a
simulated hostage situation within -
30 seconds.
Alworth's Tribute
The San Diego Chargers will
retire receiver Lance Alworth's
number during a halftime ceremo-
ny Nov. 20.
Alworth, the first American
Football League player inducted
into the Hall of Fame, is still one of
the most popular athletes in San
Diego history. His No. 19 joins Dan
Fouts' No. 14 as the only two
retired numbers in the team's 46-
year history. Fouts' number was
retired in 1988.
"Lance Alworth played a signifi-
cant role in the initial success of
the Chargers and the American
Football League," said team presi-
dent and CEO Dean Spanos. "His
play on the field became a trade-
mark for this team and an entire
league. I can't think of anyone
more deserving of this honor."
Alworth, nicknamed "Bambi" for
his speed and graceful leaping
ability, embodied the old wide-open'
attack of the AFL that is the basis -
of the West Coast offense.

S Jumbles: CLOUT HABIT BALLAD JAILED
Saturday's Answer: What he ended up with when he finished his
short story A "'TALL" TALE


Bridge


PHILLIP ALDER
Newspaper Enterprise Assn.
British journalist Katharine
Whitehorn wrote, "Hats divide.
generally into three classes: offen-
sive hats, defensive hats, and
shrapnel." Weird!
At the bridge table, there are
three classes of card-play hat:
offense declarerr), defense, and
dummy. In today's deal, the key hat
is being worn by East How should
he plan the defense against three
no-trump after his partner has led
the spade seven and South has
called for dummy's four?
East's overcall is a minimum,
but one should always strain to bid
spades because the opponents, if
unable to mention no-trump, must
go up a level to compete.
It would be normal for East to put
in the spade nine, driving out the
king and setting up his suit Maybe
he would win a trick with the dia-
mond ace in time. But before doing
that, East should take a tally of
declarer's tricks. He should see
that South would have at least nine
tricks: one spade (trick one), two
hearts (the finesse is working if he
needs it) and six clubs.
Matters are desperate. East
should win with the spade ace and
shift to the diamond two, the low
card guaranteeing an honor in that

suit and telling West, "I am trying
to win tricks in this suit." West
should take the trick as cheaply as
possible and return his diamond
three. East, after winning with his
ace, plays a third round of dia-
monds, which gives the defenders
the first five tricks.
At trick one, third hand should
always pause to consider matters.
(This gives his partner a few
moments also.) If third hand feels
rushed by declarer, he should, say
that he wishes to think

Mother-in-law's stray comment causes tension


Dear Annie: During a recent fam-
ily gathering, my mother-in-law
referred to me as an "out-law"
instead of an in-law. This comment was
toitly out of the blue. Not only was I
er#barrassed, but I have never felt so
unwanted and hurt in my entire life.
With that one statement, she
has completely destroyed
ow relationship.
Iy in-laws and I never
h e had any disagreements
inhe past. My husband says
tht I should just get over it
an&m ove on, because it is a
waste of time to confront her.
In $~"- mind, she is right and
alw4s will be right.
,-v I am very uncomfort-
ab teeing around her, but I
doj itf for my husband and ANN
children. If I confront her, MAIL
she is the type of person who MAIL
wifl make her son choose between us.
Please help. This is eating me alive. -
Heartbroken
1Iear Heartbroken: Take a giant step
back. You are making mountains out of
m6jehills. In some families, calling the
in-iw children "out-laws" is an endear-
ment.
While this may not be the case with
your mother-in-law, it's also likely that
sh4 simply has a sarcastic sense of
hu jor and did not intend to cause a
major rift.
You don't need to "confront" her. You


need to talk to her, calmly and with as
much affection as you can muster Say
that you want so much to be a close
member of your husband's family, and
you know she couldn't possibly have
intended to hurt your feelings like that
Then, for the sake of your marriage, let
it go.
Dear Annie: My fianed and
SI will be married at the end
of the summer. We are plan-
ning a small, backyard wed-
ding with family and a few
close friends.
My fiance has an ex-wife
with whom he has main-
tained a good relationship.
They have an 18-year-old son
together. While I am glad
they get along, this woman is
IE'S not really my cup of tea, and
DBOX I don't see myself as her
"friend." My fianed wants to
invite the ex and her new husband to
our wedding.
Although the ex is around regularly
for birthdays and holidays, I really don't
want her there on our special day. She
never does anything horribly wrong, but
she throws out little comments like,
"We'll always be family," and gets bossy
to me in my own home. Any advice? -
New Bride
Dear Bride: It would be nice if your
groom chose to exclude his bossy ex-
wife at your wedding. It's your day, and
you shouldn't have to worry about her


Tell him you would appreciate it if
the ex were left off the invitation list.
However, if your groom is inviting her
for his son's sake, please try to put up
with it Developing a tougher hide and a
gracious attitude will serve you well in
the long run.
Dear Annie: I am a teenager who's
always been told that if I have a prob-
lem, to talk to my parents. I did that
recently, and before I could even finish,
they started yelling about how stressed
out they are and stuff like that Now I'm
afraid to tell them anything.
How can I talk to my parents without
being one more problem for them to
deal with? Troubled Teen Near
Toronto
Dear Troubled: You may have caught
your parents at a particularly stressful
moment, and they probably have no
idea how alienating that was for you.
Don't give up. Try again, perhaps after
dinner or just before bed, when they are
more relaxed.
If you still can't get through to the
folks, is there an adult relative or neigh-
bor with whom you feel comfortable
discussing your problems? If not, when
school starts up again, please talk to the
school counselor, who also can let your
parents know that they need to be more
attentive. And, of course, you always
can write to us.

"THE LAST TW& MOM WOULD
DO VERY MIGHT WA6 WIUD
THAT CLOCK,,"


Your Birthday: Several substantial opportunities
could be in the offing for you in the year ahead. One in
particular may be something you bring into being
through hard work.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) Make a career objec-
tive your primary focal point today, because there are
chances for either advancement or some kind of bene-
fits to come your way through any concerted effort.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) There's a definite market
today for special knowledge that you possess, so start
getting in touch with those who could use your talents.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) A joint endeavor in
which you are presently involved could begin to look
more promising starting today, owing to some new
changes that are now taking place. Be hopeful.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Any arrangements you
negotiate today, such as contracts or written agree-
ments, should work out well when put into practice.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) You're in a better-
than-average financial trend for work or services you
personally perform for another today, even if there's an
intermediary of sorts in the background.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Opportunities that
develop for you today should be acted on as promptly


as possible. Don't procrastinate if something fortuitous
suddenly pops up.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) A situation that has
been a bit frustrating to you can now be worked out if
you mastermind all the moves yourself today.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Several hopes and t
dreams you are presently entertaining are not flights of 3
fancy, but realistic measures must be taken in order for
them to become realities. Do so today.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Take a hard second
look at any profitable possibilities that present them-
selves today, because you're in a cycle where things
could be much better than you may believe them to be.
Aries (March 21-April 19) If you have been con-
sidering launching a new project or venture, conditions
are quite favorable at this time for getting it under way.
Start today.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) Today's happenings
could be instrumental in opening the door for you to
achieve a secret ambition you have been harboring.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) You could do very well '
today in any arrangement where close friends or asso-
ciates are directly involved. Many good things could
happen for you right now through people who like you.
