'safest place to be'


Security chiefdiffers with terrorist scenario


JIM HUNTER
jhunter@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
A June 20 Time magazine article
about nuclear plant security, which
began with a picture of cooling towers
similar to the ones county residents


are familiar with, may have unnerved
those residents who read it.
The article begins with a terrorists'
assault scenario out of a made-for-TV
drama, replete with "shadows flitting
through the darkness" outside a
nuclear reactor and black-clad
snipers taking out guard tower sen-


tries with shield-penetrating .50-cal-
iber sniper rifles.
Saboteurs get through fences with
bolt cutters and Bangalore torpedoes,
and breach outer walls with directed
explosives, the article said, "giving
them access to the heart of the plant"
The terrorists use lasers and infrared
equipment to blind cameras, and
electronic jammers to disrupt the
defenders' communications.


Then armed with maps and draw-
ings provided by an insider, they force
their way to the control room. Many
die on the suicide mission, the article
said, but once inside, "the terrorists'
hard work would be over. Then, sur-
prisingly, would come the easy part:
triggering a nuclear meltdown."
It might make a TV script, but it
bears little resemblance to reality,
according to the Crystal River nuclear


plant's security chief.
Scott Young, superintendent of
security at the Progress Energy plant,
said he couldn't speak for all other
plants, but given what he has seen and
what he knows, he rather doubts such
a scenario is possible. He thinks it
certainly isn't even remotely likely at
the Crystal River plant.

Tiffini Tamme, 24, sits on
her couch cradling her 7-
month-old son, Evan, in one
arm and stroking the bright
red hair of her oldest son.
Looking at Tamme and her
children, no one could guess
the struggles and triumphs
she has endured.
Tamme got pregnant with
her first child, Gavin, 8, when
she was 15, and was not pre-
pared for the shock she would
receive when she had an
amniocentesis.
Doctors discovered Gavin
had Down syndrome and
immediately offered Tamme
a free abortion. But Tamme
would not consider it.
"It was something that was
meant to be," Tamme said.
"There was a reason God
gave me Gavin."
Tamme said Gavin motivat-
ed her to stay in school and
further her education.
She received her General
Education Diploma when she
was 15 after dropping out of
school in eighth grade to take
care of Gavin.
After receiving her GED,
Tamme went to a health insti-
tute in Crystal River for eight
months and received her cer-
tified nurse assistant degree
at 17.

Senatepoised

to vote this week

Associated Press
WASHINGTON Senate
Republicans will push for a
vote this week on permanently
repealing the estate tax even
though the GOP appears to
lack enough support to get past
Democrats' objections.
The tax has fallen as a result
of gradually escalating exemp-
tions and decreasing rates
since President Bush's tax cut
in 2001.
In 2010, the tax will disap-
pear But without action by
Congress, it will return with a
vengeance in 2011, when the
top tax rate on estates reverts
to 55 percent and the. exemp-
tion shrinks to $675,000.
This year the top rate is 47
percent and the first $1.5 mil-
lion left to heirs is not taxed at
all.
A small group of
Republicans and Democrats
has worked for months on a
compromise that would limit
the tax, called the "death tax"
by its critics, to only the
wealthiest families.
Farming, ranching and busi-
ness organizations that want
the tax removed are keeping
close watch. They want Senate

Joan Holzmann was just
plain fun -- that's what her
family and friends agreed
unanimously when more than
20 of them crowded into her
living room last week.
So fun, in fact, that
Joan made all her chil-
dren promise that
when she died, they
wouldn't mourn in
black, but rather throw
a party.
"That's ,why we're
having a luau," her Jo
daughter Joan Slack Holzi
said, smiling through
tears.
Joan Holzmann, 76, died
Friday, July 15, 2005, after bat-
tling cancer.
She was the kind of woman
who loved being surrounded
by her friends and family, going
on adventures and caring for
everyone she knew.
Joan moved from New York
into a house off Turner Camp

She applied for a job
as a special education

total to $80.9 million. "Wedding Crashers"
held up strongly, its revenues off just 23
percent from opening weekend, compared
to a 50 percent drop on "Charlie and the
Chocolate Factory."
Michael Bay's cloning thriller "The
Island" and the remake of the baseball
comedy "The Bad News Bears" both


debuted weakly.
"The Island," starring Ewan McGregor
and Scarlett Johansson as clones on the
run from a facility that has raised them as
spare body parts, took in $12.1 million to
finish at No. 4. It came in just behind
"Fantastic Four," which grossed $12.3 mil-
lion to lift its 17-day haul to $122.6 million.
Never a critics' darling, director Bay
('"Armageddon," "Pearl Harbor") actually
earned somewhat better reviews than
usual for "The Island." Distributor
DreamWorks was puzzled why Bay's
action fans failed to turn up.
"I don't know. Clearly, it's a disappoint-
ing opening," said Jim Tharp, Dream
Works' head of distribution. "We can only
hope the film finds its audience in the
next few weeks."
"Bad New Bears," featuring Billy Bob
Thornton as a washed-up ballplayer
coaching a team of Little League misfits,
came in fifth with $11.5 million.
The acclaimed independent film
"Hustle & Flow," starring Terrence
Howard as a pimp trying to become a rap
singer, debuted at No. 7 with $8.1 million.

LOS ANGELES "Charlie and the
Chocolate Factory" and "Wedding
Crashers" held off a rush of new releases
to retain the top two spots at the weekend
box office.
But after two straight weekends of rising
revenue, Hollywood slid back into the
slump that has lingered most of the year.
The top 12 movies took in $128.9 million,
down 7 percent from the same weekend in
2004.
"The business was there. It just got
spread pretty thin among a lot of movies,"
said Bruce Snyder, head of distribution for
20th Century Fox, whose films include
"Fantastic Four."
"Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,"
starring Johnny Depp as candyman Willy
Wonka, remained the top movie with $28.3
million, bringing its 10-day total to $114.1
million, according to studio estimates
Sunday.

Franklin helps blast state with heat

MIAMI Tropical Storm Gert

eastern Mexico as it neared landfall,
while another storm system weakened

Florida was spared the threat of dam-

TALLAHASSEE State leg-

agency responsible for assisting
the disabled ended up with a
$62 million surplus while thou-
sands of people who needed .
help remained on a waiting list
The inquiry began just after
the Agency for Persons with
Disabilities ended the budget
year June 30 with extra money
that reverted back to the state.
House and Senate staffers have
been dispatched to talk to rep-
resentatives from the agency.
"We need to understand why
it happened, because it's *
another year of anguish for

of the state.
There is a tropical storm warning for
Mexico's Gulf Coast, stretching from
Palma Sola northward to La Pesca an
area .that received some rains from
Hurricane Emily's powerful arrival in
that region last week.
"The primary threat with this, system
is rainfall," said Richard Pasch, a hur-
ricane specialist at the National
Hurricane Center in Miami.
Pasch said Gert could bring 4 to 8
inches of rain in some areas, with iso-
lated mountain regions receiving up to
12 inches.
At 8 p.m., Gert was centered about 35


miles south-southeast of Tampico,
Mexico, and moving toward the west-
northwest at 10 mph. The system had
sustained winds of 45 mph and it could
strengthen slightly before landfall.
Meanwhile, Franklin weakened in
the open Atlantic and was expected to
begin losing its tropical characteristics.
With top sustained winds down to 50
mph, it was centered 365 miles west of
Bermuda, and moving toward the east-
northeast at 10 mph.
"Given the unfavorable factors in the
environment, weakening is forecast,"
Pasch said.
Still, Franklin was helping blast


Florida with intense, hot conditions.
Many parts of the state, from South
Florida to the extreme western tip of
the Florida Panhandle, endured heat-
index readings of 105 degrees or more
on Saturday.
A heat advisory was posted for north-
west portions of the Panhandle through
today, and forecasters warned that lit-
tle, if any, of the state would soon see
much relief from the oppressively hot,
sticky temperatures.
At 4 p.m. Sunday, the heat index was
110 at Tyndall Air Force Base, 108 in
Orlando and 105 in Miami Beach.

Allowing schools to tweak
times just a little, Super-
intendent of Schools Sandra
"Sam" Himmel has approved
the new school start and end
times for the upcoming
school year.
After Himmel announced
elementary, middle and high
schools start and end times
would be condensed for both
safety and efficiency reasons
last year, she and her staff
have been working to find
just the right time.
The new times will help


keep elementary school
pupils from waiting for
school buses in the dark,
Marilyn Farmer, transporta-
tion director, said.
Condensing the times will
also give drivers more time
in between routes, which
means drivers will not have
to rush as much. If a bus is
running late, a driver might
have as few as 20 minutes in
between routes. The new
times ensure bus drivers
have at least an hour, Farmer
said.
The new times are also
expected to save the district

While Gallagher didn't throw
any political punches at his
main rival, he did have a jab
for Crist. He said he has not
changed his issues since he
began campaigning, saying he
has "pretty strong principles"
and stands by them, something,
he said, is a difference
between him and his opponent.
Following the talk, Gallagher
acknowledged he would have
to square off against the well-
respected Crist, but that "we
should always recognize we
should keep it to the issues."
Citrus County Republican
Party Chairman Bill Grant said


afterward keeping things civil
between opponents would be
important in an important
race, adding that when the
election is over, "this party will
stand united."
Saying that diverse opinions
are healthy and allow for a bet-
ter democratic process, Grant
said Gallagher's talk is one of
many that would occur before
next year's primary. He said
Crist and Gallagher would
attend at least one gathering
together to allow voters the
chance to choose who they
think is best.
"You will see a lot of people,"
Grant said, "who will withhold
their opinion until Tom and
Charlie engage in debate."

"I was really surprised to get
Ms. Tampa, but I needed to get
that in order to do Ms.
Florida," she said.
The Ms. Tampa pageant was
not nerve-wracking for
Tamme. But when she came
away from the 2005 pageant
victorious, she was worried
about the 2005 Ms. Florida U.S.
Continental pageant.
"It was nerve-wracking
because everyone had pageant
coaches," she said.
Tamme overcame her nerves


and, much to her surprise, won
first runner-up and Ms.
Congeniality.
"We didn't expect for me to
come out in any sort of place,"
she said.
Tamme is looking forward to
next year's pageant.
"I definitely want to do it
again next year," she said. "All
of the girls were really nice."
Despite her weight-loss suc-
cess story and beauty pageant
win, Tamme said she regrets
having a gastric bypass
because she has not been able
to really eat for two years and
is easily dehydrated.
"I don't want to be a poster-
child for gastric bypass," she
said.
Tamme said the pageant was
just something extra to do. She
said she enjoys being at home
and spending time with her
children.
Tamme works a lot with
Gavin in teaching him how to
use sign language and a pic-
ture system to communicate.
She also visits homes that have
children with disabilities to
educate them about Down syn-
drome.
"Being a single parent, I
really don't know what I'd do
without my family," she said.
"My life is around them, so
they are my life."

NUKE
Continued from Page 1A

At his plant, given the elabo-
rate defenses in place, he said
he is very sure it's more about
imagination than possibility.
He wasn't the only one.
David McIntyre is a spokes-
man for the Nuclear
Regulatory Commission (NRC),
which oversees the private
nuclear industry in the U.S.
McIntyre said last week that,
given the security measures
instituted in the past few years
at nuclear plants, and given the
information supplied to the
reporters, NRC officials also
found themselves scratching
their heads about the attack
scenario depicted in the arti-
cle.
The NRC has mandated a
number of security measures
at private nuclear facilities
since 9/11.
Young said the plant's
defenses and strategies to stop
such attacks are considerable
and constantly revised and
improved as a result of repeat-
ed drills and exercises. The
plant has more guards, more
frequent patrols, more surveil-
lance, security checks and
increased setbacks than it did
before. So first of all, he said
defensive forces can pick up
anyone before they get a
chance to set up outside the
plant.
"We basically are killing the
bad guys sooner," he said.
Defensive barriers
are many
Though for security reasons
he must be vague, Young said
that attackers would have to go
through a series of physically
defensive barriers, each of
which would be an operation
in itself.
The plant's team practices
its own quarterly drills, but
then it also has to defend
against an NRC national team
of commandos in a mock
attack. The mock attackers are
highly skilled, 'special forces-
caliber professionals who are
trained to go after nuclear
facilities, Young said.
These "force-on-force" exer-
cises must take place at least


once every three years at every
nuclear facility. Aided with
inside information about their
targets, the mock-attackers' try
to probe potential weaknesses.
Their goal is to try to reach and
simulate destroying enough
safety equipment to set in
motion an accident that would
damage the reactor's core or
spent fuel pool and potentially
cause a release of'radiation.
While the NRC has long
required all plants to have
emergency procedures for
potential accidental releases
of radiation, not all imaginable
scenarios of hostile attack are
also simulated, Young said.
The use of weapons and
explosives is simulated during
exercises using electronic
equipment and other means.
Any deficiency discovered is
immediately reviewed and
addressed, he said.
"They've done a jam-up job,"
he said of the NRC mock
attacks.
Young said that while the
national team of attackers is
very good at what it does, the
Crystal River plant defense
team came through its exercis-
es very successfully, as it has in
all its drills.
With its hardened positions,
early detection and advanced
engagement abilities and
defenses in depth, Young said,
the truth is that the Crystal
River nuclear plant is really a
hardened target that would
make terrorists look for more
easy prey to accomplish its
goal.
The Time article didn't take
any of that into account, he
said, adding that it would be
very difficult for, say, even a
team of 19, the number of ter-
rorists involved in total in the
various 9/11 attacks, to get very
far through the series of
defenses while various fields
of fire were raining down on
their heads.
Plus, he said of the article's
scenario, "They'd 'have you
believe we were oblivious to
what was going on around our
border."
Young said the attack strate-
gies envisioned include the ter-
rorists' use of explosives and
heavy and automatic weapons,
as well as jamming equipment.

Given the security
measures of the
past few years at
nuclear plants,
and information
supplied to
reporters, NRC
officials also
scratched
their heads.

"I can't imagine a scenario
we haven't come up with and
practiced," he said.
Even if some attackers could
actually get through some ini-
tial defenses, he said, they
wouldn't just be able to waltz
into a control room by using
what the article called "direct-
ed explosives." And no one
would be able to just throw a
few switches at that point to
cause a meltdown, he said.
As for an insider who would
help attackers, Young said, the
NRC and industry work togeth-
er through a number of pro-
grams concerning key person-
nel to make sure that possibili-
ty is extremely remote. As to
the possibility of a "sleeper,"
for example, Young said that
given the backgrounding, the


screening and continual
behavior observation pro-
grams utilized, "I don't think
that's real plausible.
He added, "We vet our folks
very well."
While the plant's defenders
are highly trained, motivated
and drilled, Young said, they
also have an extra motivation.
They know that it's their own
families too that they are
defending from any would-be
radiological saboteurs.
"I can say in my heart of
hearts, the plant is very well
protected," he said. In fact, he
added, in a terrorist attack, "In
Citrus County, this is the safest
place to be."
While the Time article said it
was based on a "tightly held"
Nuclear Regulatory Com-
mission document reviewed by
the magazine about whether
the government has set the
security bar too low for nuclear
plants, NRC Commission
Chairman Nils J. Diaz wrote in
a rebuttal letter that the report
was "an out-of-date study"
He said it had been conduct-
ed for other purposes that did-
n't reflect present knowledge
of capabilities in nuclear
plants, which he said were well
protected with multiple layers
of defenses.


TAX
Continued from Page 1A

GOP leaders to gauge support
for repealing the tax perma-
nently before moving ahead
with any compromise.
"We believe it would be a
serious mistake, and excep-
tionally difficult to again
explain to small business, if a
compromise is advanced with-
out first giving the small busi-
ness community the opportuni-
ty to actively put their
resources to the task of deliv-
ering the votes for full repeal,"
a coalition of groups wrote
Senate Majority Leader Bill
Frist, R-Tenn.
Lobbyists and lawmakers
acknowledge they are several
votes short of the 60 needed in
the Senate to clear potential
Democratic obstacles to a per-
manent repeal.
The House passed a bill in
April that would abolish the
tax.
Republican Sen. Jon Kyl of
Arizona and Democratic Sen.
Max Baucus of Montana, calcu-
lating where the votes are,
have been negotiating with
other senators in hopes of
striking a deal.
Groups that are seeking a

repeal say it has been difficult
to pin senators to a position on.
the tax while they talk compro-
mise.
"If you're trying to have it a
little bit of both ways, then you
won't commit unless you have
to commit. That's just how it
works," said Dan Danner, exec-
utive vice president at the
National Federation of
Independent Business. "That's
why we'd like to see a vote."
Most estates already are
exempt from the tax. The most
recent statistics from the
Internal Revenue Service
show just over 2 percent of
people who died in 2001 left
estates subject to taxation.
Those who want to leave the
-tax in place say its repeal gives
billions of dollars to wealthy
families at the expense of oth-
ers who might be helped
through government programs
or other tax breaks paid for
with money from the inheri-
tance tax.
Farm, ranch and business
owners say the tax can ruin
enterprises they want to pass
to their families and force
them into expensive and dis,
tracting estate planning.

Deerfield Beach man


wins Hemingway contest


Associated Press

KEY WEST A cream-col-
ored turtleneck sweater, a ruddy
complexion and a white beard
earned a 61-year-old Florida let-
ter carrier top honors at the
"Papa" Hemingway Look-Alike
Contest, a highlight event of the
25th annual Hemingway Days
festival that ended Sunday.
Entering the event for the
13th time, Bob Doughty of
Deerfield Beach beat 146 oth-
ers in the staged Saturday
night at Sloppy Joe's Bar -
Ernest Hemingway's favorite
watering hole when he lived in
Key West during the 1930s.
The annual look-alike chal-
lenge attracted national and
international entrants, dressed
in Hemingway-esque safari
garb, wool fishermen's turtle-
necks and other sporting attire,
who attempted to emulate
Hemingway's "Papa" persona.
The contest was judged by
former winners, including 2004
winner John Stubbings of Kill
Devil Hills, N.C.
Doughty said he favors
Hemingway's "The Old Man
and the Sea" but has never tried
writing. He shares the author's
legendary passion for sportfish-
ing, and for 35 years has been
visiting the Florida Keys where
Hemingway roamed and wrote.
And one benefit of winning
was immediately apparent.
"It means I can forget the
sweater," said a flushed and
perspiring Doughty.
Hemingway Days' 25th year
also included the debut of a
museum exhibit showcasing
the author's Key West years
that is to continue through the
remainder of 2005.
Highlighting literary events
was the 25th annual Lorian
Hemingway Short Story
Competition, directed by
Hemingway's granddaughter, a
critically acclaimed author.
Naomi Benaron of Tucson,
Ariz., earned first place and'
$1,000 for "The Chemical
Nature of Things," detailing
the pain and compassion of a
young medical student recall-

ing- her mother's mental ill-
ness.
Lorian Hemingway also intro-
duced Richard Steel Hem-
ingway who believes he is
Ernest Hemingway's illegiti-
mate son, born late in the
author's life.
Lorian Hemingway believes
he is credible.


"I know that Richard is com-
pletely sincere and guileless in
his quest for his father, and I do
believe his father is Ernest
Hemingway," she said. "Rich-
ard is so determined to have an
answer that he is having DNA
testing, and a male member of
our family is going to .give
blood for the testing."


FAMU president: School will be OK


Associated Press

ORLANDO Florida A&M
University's interim president
promised greater financial
oversight and requested more
donations to prop up the trou-
bled school at a weekend alum-
ni gathering.
In an address delivered
Saturday, Castell Bryant said
FAMU will not be just the "best
black school," but the "best
institution in the country."
However, she also warned
that further challenges lay
ahead.
More than 250 alumni from

across the country gathered at
the Renaissance Orlando Resort
for an all-class convention that
focused on health issues, but
was often overshadowed by the
school's financial scandals.
Bryant, a former FAMU
trustee, became the interim
president in January after
Fred Gainous was fired amid
several administrative and
financial missteps. So far, she's
taken drastic steps to right the
books, running an audit that

teams and scholarships by $1.7
million, and closed the univer-
sity's Institute on Urban Policy

CITRUS COUNTY (F1.) CHRONICL.vu

Paramilitary moose
FORT CARSON, Colo. -
Soldiers captured an intruder in a
secure area of a Colorado military
base, but the intruder was no crimi-
nal just a loose moose.
Soldiers and state wildlife offi-
cers managed to corral the 500-
pound female moose, which had
wandered into the part of Fort
Carson reserved for equipment
returning from Iraq.
Steve Cooley, a wildlife manager
for the state, said the location was
less than ideal for a moose. The
animal was tranquilized and loaded
into a trailer packed with 600
pounds of ice to keep it cool during
the record heat wave.
Officials said the military moose
will be released into the wild in
Western Colorado.
Confidential dilemma
SOUTHINGTON, Conn. -


Whether or not music soothes the
soul may be put to the test in
Southington Town Hall.
In an effort to protect against
eavesdropping during closed-door
executive sessions, the Town
Council decided to install a $1,200
sound system to pipe music into
hallways outside Town Council
chambers.
The measure, however, was left
in limbo when the finance board
deadlocked last week. Town offi-
cials were uncertain how the
finance board's action would affect.
the council's plan.
Details about confidential execu-
tive sessions have occasionally
appeared in newspapers, leading
to suspicion that an unidentified
reporter was eavesdropping.
But Councilman Arthur Secondo
said drowning out conversation
with music was unnecessary.
"All you have td'do is ask people


to move away from the door when
executive sessions are being held,"
he said. "A little common sense,
not flooding the hallways with
music, is the answer."
Hippo birthday
EVANSVILLE, Ind. Let them
eat cake. At least this party's guest
of honor seemed content with
sticking to her diet.
Hundreds of visitors enjoyed
birthday cake Saturday at the
Mesker Park Zoo & Botanic
Garden while Donna the hippo ate
frozen fruit to celebrate the 3,500-
pound animal's 54th birthday.
Zoo keeper John W. Stuteville
said Donna is considered one of
the world's oldest living Nile hip-
pos. She has already outlived her
mate and all eight of their offspring.
Stuteville said that in the wild,
hippos usually live to be only 30 to
45 years old.
Arthritis, which afflicts Donna,


usually brings them down because
they carry too much weight on their
short stubby legs and knees.
Stuteville attributes Donna's
longevity to the care she has received
at the zoo and to her surroundings,
including inclines she must climb out
of her enclosure's pools a design
that keeps her active.
Mesker obtained Donna from a
zoo in Memphis in 1954, three years
after she was bom. Stuteville greets
the hippo each morning with a vari-
ety of food that usually includes two
oranges, a tomato, a sweet potato,
an apple and two bananas.
"I have a banana also, and usu-
ally give her half of it," he said.
Stolen gnomes found
GREELEY, Colo. The mystery
of the missing garden gnomes may


prove harder to solve after all.
Police found about 80 of the
stolen pint-sized figurines stashed
in black plastic bags and surround-
ed by youngsters Saturday, but
investigators don't think the chil-
dren stole them.
In fact, Sgt. Dave Adams said
the children most likely found them,
so it's back to square one.
Adams said police will call peo-
ple who reported their gnomes
stolen to come identify the decora-
tive yard items.
Elsie Schnorr, who had 30
gnomes stolen from her front lawn
more than a month ago, will be
among the first to retrieve her prop-
erty.
"I could identify every one of
them. My name isn't on them, but I
know which ones are mine. Most of

Suicide bomber kills 22 in Iraq


Associated Press
BAGHDAD, Iraq A suicide
bomber detonated a truck
packed with explosives outside
a Baghdad police station
Sunday, killing at least 22 peo-
ple in the country's deadliest
attack in a week. Separate
attacks killed a U.S. soldier and
a Marine, the U.S. military said.
The attack on the Rashad
police station in the eastern
neighborhood of Mashtal came
during a blinding sandstorm.
Security barricades prevented
the bomber from reaching the
station, but the huge blast
destroyed two dozen cars and
damaged nearby shops.
Police and hospital officials
said 22 people most of them
civilians were killed and
about 30 were injured. The
U.S. military, citing initial Iraqi
police reports, said 40 people
were killed, but police said


they were uncertain where
that figure came from.
It was the deadliest attack in
Iraq since a suicide bomber
blew himself up July 16 near a
Shiite mosque in the central
city of Musayyib, igniting a fuel
tanker and killing nearly 100
people.
Elsewhere, gunmen killed
the leader of the city council in
the insurgent-riddled city of
Samarra, 60 miles north of
Baghdad, police said. Council
chairman Taha al-Hinderah
and a companion were gunned
down as they walked in the
Albu Rahman neighborhood
Sunday evening, police Capt.
Laith Mohammed said.
In Mosul, Iraq's third-largest
city, insurgents emptied fuel
from two tanker trucks on the
Muthanna Bridge across the
Tigris River and set it on fire,
police said. Two people were
wounded in clashes that fol-


lowed. Six policemen also
were killed Sunday in scat-
tered attacks in Baghdad and
Kirkuk, officials reported.
Gunmen in Kirkuk also killed
an Iraqi soldier and wounded
six people, police said.
The Marine was killed Sat-
urday when a roadside bomb
exploded near the desert town
of Rutbah, 220 miles west of
Baghdad. The U.S. command
said the Marine was assigned to
Regimental Combat Team-2 of
the 2nd Marine Division, but the
victim's name was not released.
On Sunday, one U.S. soldier
was killed and two were wound-
ed in a mortar attack near Balad
north of Baghdad, the U.S. mili-

Lane changing S o
I travel from Inverness to
Crystal River every day on
'(State Road) 44. I have
never seen so many drivers
go in and out of the lanes,
turning into side streets,
coming out of streets,, who
can't use a directional sig- CALL
nal. Those things are on 563
your car for a reason. You
drivers and you know
who you are who don't
use those directional signals should
learn how to use them and when to
use them. It would prevent a lot of
accidents, instead of just coming
over into the next lane when you're
going in and out.
Thomas on target
Thank you very much for publish-
ing Cal Thomas. It's too bad that he
doesn't have more articles. He
seems to be one of the only people
who can really get things correct,
but I sure do appreciate his
columns.
Trailer hitch
I was calling about the guy who's
looking for an answer about weigh-
ing his trailer. I have some informa-
tion that would help him. Have him
call me at 464-1412. I know how he
can do it.
Belly dancing
This is in response to the person
looking for belly dance classes.
They're offered at Whispering Pines
Recreational Center, City of
Inverness. We will have new classes
starting in September for beginners.
The number at Whispering Pines is
726-3913.
Dotcom not common
Nobody has consideration for the
underprivileged. They start talking
about something on TV and then
when you get interested, they say,
"Go to blah-blah-blah dotcom for
more information." Then they show
a product "Oh boy, I sure would
like a free sample." "Call blah-blah-
blah dotcom for free samples, free
coupons." That's great, but we can't
afford it. Dot don't come to our
house and we can't afford a comput-
er. I wish they would at least give us
a phone number so we could call ...
Key coverage
I wonder why the runners that's
running for the Key Center don't get
more publicity than they're getting.
They're getting very sparse publicity
and yet you put a big picture on the
front page of somebody diving in
(Lake) Henderson with four feet
showing. The runners don't even get
a picture and they're way on the
inside of the paper in the second
section. I think they should get more
publicity. We have (Sheriff) Dawsy


development. As a result, the
commission set standards that
will be mandatory for businesses
and optional for residences.

integrity of this his-

protection for

ose the also a reinforce-
rm. ment for all of

balloon. It will be difficult to
keep Citrus County beautiful,
but with the combined efforts of
concerned citizens and a proac-
tive county commission, it can
happen.

Stunning and different peo-
ple of importance running
... We need more in the
Chronicle about the run-
ners.
Editor's note: The Key

on the front page on
io' Tuesday, July 19, Saturday,
July 23, and Sunday, July 24.

ries July 19 to 23 on page
3A, detailing Key Center clients who
would be helped with funds raised from
the event.
Lacking refinement
Does it make you sick like it does
me the way these news media peo-
ple refer to the horrible perpetrators
in our news as gentlemen?
Poor delivery
Recently I've been wondering, why
do I have a delivery box for my
Citrus County Chronicle? It has
become pretty much useless since
the delivery person never uses it.
Instead he feels it is better to throw
my paper not on my driveway, which
I could handle, but he or she feels
like it should be thrown into the
middle of my drenching wet lawn.
What's the secret? How do I get my
paper so it is not dripping as I bring
it into my house? Let me know.
School hours
Reading today about the changes
of school hours for primary elemen-
tary students seems logical. It
should help working parents and
high-schoolers who have jobs.
Primary students will get more
sleep and high-schoolers will need
to get to bed earlier, which will pre-
pare them for their work hours in
the future. All in all, it should be
given a full year trial of those hours.
Protect borders
It continues to dumbfound nme
that so many uninformed people
think that fighting in Iraq will stop
terrorists from killing on our soil.
There are 193 countries in the
world and fighting terrorism in one
of them is not going to protect the
United States against terrorists.
Besides, it was not Iraq that
attacked us on our soil in the first
place.. Our soldiers would be better
utilized here protecting our borders.
According to U.S. reports, (more
than) 2 million illegal aliens have
entered our country since Jan. 1, or
(more than) 8,000 a day. How many
of these may be potential terrorists?
Wake up, America.
Whole new focus
This is the grandfather who said
the Lions Club would not help get
glasses for his 17-year-old grandson.
I made a mistake. I was misinformed.
Lions Club is great. I am so sorry.

>Flip-flops as in those
ratty rubber sandals you
wear to the beach. Except
: that these days, they are no

even at that, aren't they still,

Apparently not, in the
d Pitts judgment of several mem-
IER bers of the Northwestern
CES University women's
lacrosse team. They wore
flip-flops recently when
they were invited for a photo op with
President Bush to celebrate their
championship season. The fashion
police set up a howl that could be
heard from here to Bergdorf
Goodman, the young women's choice
of footwear making headlines every-
where from the Chicago Tribune to the
Washington Post to the Los Angeles
Times to the Boston Globe to ye olde
Miami Herald. Finally, several of the
women had to go on NBC's "Today
Show" and swear they meant no harm.
As near as I can tell, about the only
person who didn't raise an eyebrow
was President Bush. I'm thinking this
is because he has daughters roughly
the age of the Northwestern students.
So he's just glad they didn't drop by
wearing low-rise jeans that showed off
thong underwear and tattoos across
their tailbones.
At this point, I must confess that I'm

Paying for growth
Re: FGUA assessments on Pine
Ridge and Citrus Springs property
owners for expansion of facilities.
The rapid growth in the county is
bound to require huge capital expen-
ditures, but to require newcomers to
bear most of this cost is unfair and
will ultimately stymie further growth.
It is not right to require newcomers to
bear an inequitable share of the cost
of an expenditure that is expected to
have a service life of 40 to 50 years.
Most public-owned utilities finance
large capital expenditures by selling
bonds. The utility annualizes the rev-
enue requirements to cover its cost
for interest on those bonds, operating
and maintenance cost, depreciation
and the return on investment. For
public-owned (nonprofit) utilities,
there is no tax component and the
rate of return is low. This enables the
utility to distribute costs more equi-
tably to the customers obtaining serv-
ice during the life of the facility
Certain equipment and facilities
are needed to provide basic service,
i.e. the water mains, pumping sta-
tions, etc. Fire hydrants and larger
water mains should be provided to
the communities and paid for by the
communities annually (as a rental)
based on the annual cost to the utility.
Only the connection cost to the cus-
tomers' property should be borne by
the property owner. It makes no sense
for FGUA to charge a property owner
for a service or product it is not pro-
viding even though they may have a
water main in the street that passes
the property. Does the power compa-
ny charge the property owner
because it has a distribution line
down the street? If we do not allow
the power company to apply such
charges, why should we allow FGUA?
It is time the county and state regu-
latory bodies got involved in this dis-

Who will fight?
The Liberal-Democrats, not content
with taking away our rights to defend
ourselves in our own homes by deny-
ing us gun rights as in the major liber-
al states like New York, California,
etc., are now intent on denying us the
right to defend our country against
terrorists. They defend the killer-ter-
rorists in detention at Guantanamo,
and complain that they are not being
treated well as our soldiers try to


place, I was born in Southern
California. Then, as if that weren't bad
enough, I moved to South Florida. So
you see, any fashion sense I might
have had was ruthlessly beaten out of
me by years of exposure to black-tie T-
shirts, pre-stressed blue jeans, Casual
Friday (always preceded by Relaxed
Monday, Informal Tuesdays,
Indifferent Wednesdays and Sloppy
Thursday) and beach shirts loud
enough to drown out the landing of a
jumbo jet.
Hence, I consider it a victory when I
manage to wear socks that match ...
anything. But even I know you don't
wear flip-flops at the White House.
That a perfectly decent group of
young women does not kind of says it
all about the informality of the age. We
have elevated personal comfort to vir-
tually the status of a constitutional
right. But in the process, maybe we
have lost the capacity for a sense of
moment, a sense of occasion, a sense
that there are things you respect. And
that one of the ways you show respect
is by dressing up.
Wait. I just read back that last para-
graph and I'm trying to figure out
when I turned into my mother.
I guess there are worse fates.
It's just that people keep telling me
this is a more laidback era. And that's
all well and good. But I find myself
wondering: how far back can you lay
before you fall over completely?

extract deadly information from
them. They'd rather we mollycoddle
them and risk terrible disaster on our
own country.
The fact they hate America being
strong is weakness, and dangerous.
The Clintons are on record saying
they hate the military. Sen. (Richard)
Durbin on the Senate floor accuses
soldiers of acting like Nazis and
Communists, people who killed hun-
dreds of millions; and the rest of the
Democrats support and defend him in
these traitorous accusations. I never
knew of any such liberals during
World War II, thank God.
Have liberals thought who will
defend us when the few men who vol-
unteer to fight and die finally get the
message the Liberal-Democrats are
spewing and decide "the hell with the
whole thing, you go fight"? Will they
bring back the draft? Don't bet on it!
The schools don't teach patriotism as
the NEA (Liberal-Democrat favorite)
wouldn't want to hurt the feelings of
the United Nations, so they teach
"political correctness" and multicul-
turalism instead of "patriotism." After
all, the first syllable of the word
means father. The liberal feminists
hate the word as it is.
Do you think the liberal secular
mothers of today would allow the
draft? Hey, we're not living in 1940s
any more, when mothers and fathers
and their sons were full of pride in
their country Who do the Liberal-
Democrats want to lead in these trou-
bled times? They want as.
"Commander and Chief" none other
than Hillary Clinton.
Volunteering for service is down
now. It will be nonexistent if that ever
happens, as liberal boys do not want
to fight for the good old USA They go
to Canada!

W hat would you .
wear if you were
invited to the .'
White House?
My daughter, all of 14, got
this look on her face like I'd
threatened to take her to a
Motown concert. "Ew," she
said, "do we have to go to
the White House?"
No, I said. I just want to
know what you'd wear if Leonar
you did go. OTI
"Well," she said, "I'd want VO4
to be comfortable, so I'd
probably wear jeans and a
T-shirt."
Figuring she didn't quite get the
question, I pressed her. "Let's say they
were honoring you. What would you
wear?"
In that case, she said, she'd dress up
a bit. A nice skirt and blouse, maybe. I
sighed in relief that I had not raised a
Philistine. At which point she men-
tioned that she would top off her
ensemble with these cool new shoes
they have that look like high heels, but
they're really sneakers. Or maybe she
said they look like sneakers, but
they're really high heels I was busy
cringing at the time. Anyway, my point
is, there are fates worse than flip-flops.
And if you're going, "Huh?" well, it's
obvious you missed one of the biggest
news stories of the last couple weeks.
Sure, you read about the bombings in
London, Karl Rove roasting on an
open fire, and "Scotty" from "Star
Trek" getting beamed up to that big
transporter room in the sky. But did
you hear about the flip-flop flap?

Biggest union bolts from AFL-CIO


Associated Press
From right, AFL-CIO president John Sweeney, secretary/treasurer
Rich Trumka and executive vice president Linda Chavez-Thompson
cheer Sunday at an AFL-CIO solidarity rally in Chicago. Organized
labor split into warring factions yesterday as four major unions
staged a boycott of the AFL-CIO convention, poised to sever ties
to the 50-year-old federation in a dispute about how to reverse the
decades-long decline of union membership.


Differinggoals

at heart of

labor dispute

Associated Press
CHICAGO The Teamsters
and a massive service employ-
ees' union decided Sunday to
bolt the AFL-CIO, paving way
for two other labor groups to
sever ties in the biggest rift in
organized labor since the'
1930s.
The four dissident unions,
representing nearly one-third
of the AFL-CIO's 13 million
members, announced' they
were boycotting the federa-
tion's convention that begins
Monday, a step that was widely


considered to be a precursor to
leaving the federation.
They are part of the Change
to Win Coalition, a group of
seven unions vowing to accom-
plish what the AFL-CIO has
failed to do: Reverse the
decades-long decline in union
membership. But many union
presidents, labor experts and
Democratic Party leaders fear
the split will weaken the move-
ment politically and hurt
unionized workers who need a
united and powerful ally
against business interests and
global competition.
The Service Employees
International Union, the largest
AFL-CIO affiliate with 1.8 mil-
lion members, has spearheaded
the exodus and will announce
Monday that it is' leaving the
AFL-CIO, said several labor
officials who spoke on condi-


tion of anonymity because they
are not authorized to discuss
the developments.
The Teamsters will declare
their departure at the same
"Change to Win" news confer-
ence, officials said.
Two other boycotting unions
signaled similar intentions:
United Food and Commercial
Workers and UNITE HERE, a
group of textile and hotel work-
ers. But they were not sched-
uled to take part in Monday's
news conference, officials said.
"Our differences are so fun-
damental and so principled
that at this point I don't think
there is a chance there will be
a change of course," said
UFCW President Joe Hansen.
AFL-CIO President John
Sweeney, expected to easily
win re-election over the objec-
tions of the dissidents, suggest-


ed the dissidents were spoiled
sports, leaving after their
demands were not met.
"It's a shame for working
people that before the first vote
has been cast, four unions have
decided that if they can't win,
they won't show up for the
game," Sweeney said. The rhet-
oric was unusually personal, in
part because dissident leader
Andy Stern of the SEIU is a for-
mer protege of Sweeney's.
Leaders of the dissident
unions say the AFL-CIO lead-.
ership has failed to stop the
steep decline in union mem-
bership. In addition to seeking
the ouster of Sweeney, they
have demanded more money
for organizing, power to force
mergers of smaller unions and
other changes they say are key
to adapting to vast changes in
society and the economy.


Not all


Roberts


records


will be


released

Associated Press
WASHINGTON Citing pri-
vacy and precedent, the Bush
administration indicated Sun-
day it does not intend to
release all memos and other
documents written by Sup-
remte Court nominee John
Roberts when he worked for
two Republican presidents.
The lead ing Democrat on the
Senate Judiciary Committee
disputed the assertion that pri-
vacy was at stake and called
such a position a "red herring."
Roberts worked in the
Reagan White House counsel's
office from 1982-86. He also
was principal deputy solicitor
general in the administration
of the first President Bush.
Fred D. Thompson, the for-
mer Tennessee senator who is
guiding Roberts through the
nomination process on behalf
of the White House, said mate-
rial that would come under
attorney-client privilege would
be withheld. He contended that
previous administrations, both
Republican and Democrat,.
have followed that principle.
"We hope we don't get into a
situation where documents
are asked for that folks know
will not be forthcoming and we
get all hung up on that,"
Thompson told NBC's "Meet
the Press."
Attorney General Alberto
Gonzales appeared more open
to considering such requests,
but he also cited concerns
about "very sensitive, very
deliberative information" that
could be involved.
"Generally, that's not some-
thing that the administration
or any White House would be
inclined to share because it is
so sensitive and does, in my
judgment, does chill communi-
cations between line attorneys
and their superiors within the
Department of Justice," Gon-
zales said on "Fox News
Sunday."
"That would be something
that we'd have to look at very,
very carefully," he said.
"Rather than prejudge the
issue, let's wait for the
Judiciary Committee to make
its requests, and then we can
evaluate the requests and
hopefully reach an appropri-
ate accommodation."
The committee has yet to ask
for such material. But some
Democrats, including Sen.
John Kerry of Massachusetts,
have urged the White House to
release "in their entirety" any
documents written by Roberts.
Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy,
the senior Democrat on the
Judiciary Committee, said
other nominees, including
Chief Justice William H.
Rehnquist, have provided
material they wrote in confi-
dence while working in the
Justice Department.


Egypt: Attacks well-planned


Associated Press
Demonstrators protest Sunday in front of the blown-up Ghazala Gardens Hotel in Sharm el-Sheik, Egypt. A rapid series of car
bombs and another blast in this Egyptian Red Sea resort Saturday devastated a luxury hotel and a coffee shop and killed at least
88 people.

Attackers removed engine serial numbers to hamper investigators


Associated Press
SHARM EL-SHEIK, Egypt
- The bombers who carried
out Egypt's worst-ever terror-
ist attack appear to have
entered this Red Sea resort
in pickup trucks loaded with
explosives that were hidden
under vegetables, security
officials said Sunday. Police
were searching for three sus-
pects believed to have sur-
vived the bombings.
One truck headed for the
luxury Ghazala Gardens
hotel. There, one man planted
a bomb in a suitcase in a park-
ing lot, while another
slammed the vehicle into the
Ghazala hotel's reception
area, the security officials
said, speaking on condition of
anonymity because of the sen-
sitivity of the investigation.


As people fled the Ghazala
attack, the suitcase exploded
and killed at least seven peo-
ple, said the officials.
A second truck, on a road
leading to another major
hotel, got stuck in traffic in
the Old Market an area fre-
quented by Egyptian workers
in the resort area on the
southern tip of the Sinai
Peninsula. Two militants
inside abandoned the vehi-
cle, apparently setting a
timer, and the blast detonat-
ed soon after, the officials
said.
Before the attacks, the mil-
itants rubbed serial numbers
off the trucks' engines, the
officials said.
Such serial numbers had
been a key clue Egyptian
investigators had used to
track down those behind sim-


ilar vehicle bombings last
October against two resorts
further north in the Sinai
Peninsula, Taba and Ras
Shitan.
According to local hospi-
tals, Saturday's pre-dawn
bombings killed at least 88
people both Egyptians and
foreigners; Egypt's Health
Ministry put the death toll at
.64. Hospitals said the min-
istry count does not include a
number of sets of body parts.
One official said he
believed the man who plant-
ed the suitcase came sepa-
rately, not in the attack truck,
and he said police were look-
ing for more than three peo-
ple, though he would not
elaborate.
Investigators were also
examining whether the sui-
cide bomber who set off the


blast at the Ghazala was one
of five suspects still at large
from the October bombings.
Police took DNA samples
from the parents of the five
Taba suspects to compare
with bodies found at the
Ghazala, a police official said
in el-Arish, where the par-
ents were briefly detained.
With. fears the attacks will
devastate one of the strongest
engines of the vital tourism
industry, some 1,000 foreign-
ers and Egyptians who work
in Sharm el-Sheik marched
down its main hotel strip
chanting slogans against ter-
rorism in English, Arabic,
Italian and German.
Decked out in surf trunks,
dive-shop T-shirts and hotel
uniforms, they vowed the
long-flourishing resort would
survive.


Abortion pill deaths puzzle health officials


Four California

women die after taking

controversial drug

Associated Press
LOS ANGELES Federal health inves-
tigators are baffled: Why have four
California women died from a blood-
stream infection after using a controver-
sial abortion pill?
"On the surface, this appears unusual,"
said Dr. Marc Fischer, a medical epidemi-
ologist at the federal Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention in Atlanta. "That's
why we're investigating."
Two of the deaths one this year and


one last year were reported last week by
the Food and Drug Administration. The
other two deaths occurred in 2003. All
were caused by sepsis, a bloodstream
infection, although the women didn't have
all the usual symptoms for sepsis.
Only one other U.S. death linked to the
drug has been reported since it went on
the market in 2000, and the cause of death
in that case was different.
Sold as Mifeprex, and also known as
RU-486 or mifepristone, it is taken as two
pills at different times. None of the women
who died followed FDA-approved instruc-
tions for taking the drug, and authorities
are looking into whether that may have
played a role in their deaths.
The FDA said it believes Mifeprex is
safe enough to stay on the market and that
there is no proof it caused the deaths.
However, the label will be updated to alert


women and doctors in more detail to
unusual, dangerous infections that are not
always accompanied by fever.
More than 460,000 women in the United
States have used Mifeprex since it was
invented in France in the 1980s. The pill
already contains a "black-box" warning
highlighting the risk of bacterial infection,
sepsis and death.
The drug's maker, New York-based
Danco Laboratories, has defended the
pill's record, saying there is -no evidence
Mifeprex caused bacterial infection and
sepsis. However, the company agreed to
change the warning label.
Mifeprex is approved to end a pregnan-
cy up to 49 days after the start of a woman's
last menstrual cycle. It is a two-part treat-
ment one drug blocks a hormone
required to sustain a pregnancy and the
other, taken days later, ends the pregnancy.


Accused molester
was writing memoir
SAN JOSE, Calif. -A man
who authorities say could be the
nation's most prolific child
molester was crafting a lengthy
memoir about his sexual
exploits with boys when he was
arrested, police said.
Authorities also said they
have cracked "99 percent" of the
code that Dean Schwartzmiller
used in notebooks he kept,
apparently to chronicle crimes
both real and imagined.
Schwartzmiller was arrested
in May after investigators dis-
covered notebooks with 36,700
handwritten entries of boys'
names, descriptions of their
anatomy and codes for suspect-
ed sex acts.

with a triumph

PARIS Lance Armstrong
closed out his amazing career
with a seventh consecutive
Tour de France victory Sunday
and did it a little earlier than
expected.
Because of wet conditions,
race organizers stopped the
clock as Armstrong and the
main pack entered Paris.
Although riders were still rac-
ing, with eight laps of the
Champs-Elysees to complete,
organizers said that Armstrong
had officially won.
The stage started as it has
done for the past six years -


with Armstrong wearing the
race leader's yellow jersey. It
ended the same way, too -
with him celebrating, this time
by a comfortable margin of
more than 4V/2 minutes.
One hand on his handlebars,
the other holding a flute of
champagne, Armstrong toasted
his teammates as he pedaled
into Paris to collect his crown.
He held up seven fingers -
one for each win and a piece
of paper with the number 7 on
it
When it was over, Armstrong
saluted the race he's made his

said.

LONG POND, Pa. Kurt Busch
kept his poise with NASCAR's two
grizzled veterans pushing hard
down the stretch.
Rusty Wallace and Mark Martin
were both determined to leave
Pocono for good as winners.
Instead, Busch spoiled the going
away party and kept moving
toward another Nextel Cup title.

ning, surged back to the lead late
and raced to his second win of the
season Sunday in the

Raceway.
"To see the (No.) 2 and the 6 back
there is reminiscent of old times,"
said Busch, who earned his 13th
career victory.
Wallace, who will retire at the
end of the season, finished second
in the No. 2 Dodge and fell just
short of matching Bill Elliott's
record of five career wins at
Pocono.
Perhaps driving his last race at
Pocono, Mark Martin finished
third in the No. 6 Ford and Carl
Edwards followed his win here in
June with a fourth-place finish.
While Wallace is firm in his com-
mitment to retire, Martin may have
his farewell tour extended another
year because Jack Roush is with-
out a driver for the Ford next year.


"I still have my decision," Martin
said. "I don't even like talking

on trucks."

NL: Astros down Nationals in 14


Associated Press

WASHINGTON Eric
Bruntlett hit a three-run
homer with two outs in the
top of the 14th inning Sunday
to give the Houston Astros a
4-1 victory over the
Washington Nationals. .
Bruntlett fouled off three
straight pitches before
pulling Hector Carrasco's 3-2
pitch over the left-field fence
and into the Nationals
bullpen to give the Astros
their seventh win in eight
games.
Russ Springer (3-3) pitched
two innings for the victory,
and Brad Lidge pitched the
bottom of the 14th for his
23rd save. The Astros won
three of four in the series.
The Nationals have lost
four of five and 13 of 18. They
wasted a stellar starting per-
formance by John Patterson,
whose effort was matched by
Astros rookie starter Wandy
Rodriguez.
Bruntlett, who had entered
the game in the 10th inning,
connected for his second
homer of the year off
Carrasco (3-3) and his sixth,
seventh and eighth RBIs.
Marlins 4, Giants 1
SAN FRANCISCO A.J.
Burnett homered and pitched
into the eighth inning, and Miguel
Cabrera connected for the third
straight game to lead Florida.
Juan Encarnacion added a
two-run shot as Florida took two
of three to win its first series in
San Francisco since 1997, when
the Marlins earned the NL wild
card and won the World Series.
Carlos Delgado singled in the
eighth to extend his hitting streak
to 11 games as the Marlins con-
cluded a 10-game road trip in
impressive fashion. Cabrera was
7-for-10 with five RBIs and six
runs in the series.
Burnett (7-6), whose name
has come up in trade talk for
weeks, won his second straight
start in his first outing at SBC
Park since 2001. He hit his third
career homer on the first pitch he
saw from Kevin Correia (1-2)
with one out in the third.

NEW YORK Kris Benson
pitched four-hit ball for eight
innings, and Mike Piazza hit a
two-run homer and drove in
three runs for New York.
Carlos Beltran tripled, Cliff
Floyd had an RBI double and
Piazza had three hits as the
Mets won for the sixth tjme in
seven games and moved four
over .500 (51-47) to match a
season high. Los Angeles
dropped to 7-13 in July.
Benson (7-3) didn't allow a
baserunner until Cesar Izturis
bunted for a single with one out in
the fourth. He scattered four sin-
gles two didn't make it out of
the infield and struck out five.


Brad Penny (5-6) gave up four
runs and eight hits in six innings.
It was the first time he has
allowed more than three runs in
a start since June 10.
Phillies 5, Padres 1
PHILADELPHIA- Brett
Myers (8-5) allowed one run in
six innings and delivered an RBI
double as Philadelphia complet-
ed a three-game sweep of
slumping San Diego.
Ryan Howard had three hits,
including an RBI double, for
Philadelphia, which went 9-4 on
its homestand and has won 26 of
its last 39 home games.
Ramon Hernandez had three
hits for San Diego, which went 0-
6 on a road trip to New York and
Philadelphia and has lost a sea-
son-high seven in a row overall.
Third baseman Joe Randa,
acquired Saturday from
Cincinnati, made his Padres
debut with a pinch-hit single in
the seventh inning.
Philadelphia, which was last in
the NL with 148 doubles, jumped
on starter Brian Lawrence (5-10)
for three two-base hits and four
runs in the fourth inning.
Reds 3, Brewers 2
CINCINNATI Adam Dunn
led off the ninth inning with his
28th home run as Cincinnati beat
Milwaukee.
Dunn hit a 2-2 pitch from Julio
Santana (2-4) into the right-field


seats to give the Reds their ninth
victory in 13 games. David
Weathers (6-1) pitched a score-
less inning for the win.
Milwaukee starter Doug Davis
set a career high with 11 strike-
outs, but was left with his fifth no-
decision in five starts. He allowed
six hits and two runs with one
intentional walk in eight innings.
Cincinnati's Luke Hudson, who
was 0-5 with a 10.72 ERA in his
previous six starts, lasted six
innings for the first time since his
first start this season on June 9.
He allowed six hits and two runs.
Pirates 3, Rockies 0
PITTSBURGH Mark
Redman (5-10) ended a six-week
winless streak by allowing six hits
over eight innings and Pittsburgh
won its first series since the All-
Star break.
The Pirates turned Tike
Redman's bloop double to short
left field that should have been
caught and Jack Wilson's ground-
ball triple down the first-base line
into a gift two-run second inning
against Shawn Chacon (1-7).
Jose Castillo homered to start the
fourth, his eighth.
Pittsburgh had lost nine of 12
games since last winning a series
by taking two of three from the
Mets from July 8-10. Jose Mesa
got his 24th save in 27 appear-
ances, pitching the ninth inning in
his third consecutive appearance.,

NEW YORK Knicks
owner James Dolan of
Cablevision met Sunday night
with prospective coach Larry
Brown, who had wanted to
speak first with interim coach
Herb Williams.
The visit to Brown's home in
East Hampton, N.Y, by Dolan
and team president Isiah
Thomas represented the next
step in the Knicks' wooing of
Brown, a pursuit that figures to
draw to a conclusion in the
next few days.
"I'm not going to comment on
how it went," Brown said after-
ward.
The Knicks had not formally
offered the job to Brown as of
Saturday, but the implied mes-
sage from Thomas was clear:
The job is Brown's if he wants
it.
Brown had said he wanted to
speak to Williams before

Racing which had three of
the top-four finishers Busch,
Martin and Edwards.
The result was particularly
impressive for Edwards, who
was forced to start at the back
of the field because he skipped
qualifying to compete in
Saturday's Busch Series race.
Somehow, he made it near the
front of the pack just not far
enough.
Jimmie Johnson maintained
his overall points lead with a
12th place finish. Tony Stewart
moved to second in the stand-
ings with a seventh-place fin-
ish, Greg Biffle (17th) is third
followed by Wallace.
Busch had the strongest car
from the beginning, taking the
lead from polestitter Jamie
McMurray on the first turn of
the first lap.
Busch started second in his
No. 97 Ford and needed just
113 laps to clinch the five
bonus points awarded for lead-
ing the most laps. With 90 laps
remaining, Busch pitted to fix
a loose lugnut on the left front.
and had a 17.5-second stop,
which slowed him down and
allowed some of NASCAR's old
dogs to make a run.
"You always have to bounce
back You can't get hard on
your team," Busch said. "I kept
quiet and I kept conservative."
Wallace and Martin came on
at the end, though. Wallace
even led most of the last few
laps and made it seem possible
he could win for the fifth time
at Pocono.
"I'm really stepping on the
edge and trying to keep up
with the competition," Wallace
said.
Busch pushed Wallace hard
and seemed poised to take the

speaking to Dolan, but
Williams was out of town for
the weekend and Dolan was in
the Hamptons. Those logistics
made Dolan the second Knicks
official to get a private audi-
ence with Brown.
"We're going to go to dinner
tomorrow somewhere in New
York with Herb Williams,"
Brown told The Associated
Press in a telephone interview.
"It's important for me to talk to
him."
Williams, who has been
asked by the Knicks to stay
publicly silent, did not return a
call to his cell phone.
Williams has been accepting
of his tenuous job status
throughout the spring and
summer, first when the Knicks
made a pitch to Phil Jackson,
and now during their serenad-
ing of Brown.
Williams spent 18 years in
the NBA, including seven with
the Knicks.


lead when the caution came
out for debris from Matt
Kenseth's car, so Wallace kept
his spot up front with 33 laps
left.
His car just didn't have
enough left.
"We put the hammer down
and we went for it," Busch said.
"It's just a great tribute to what
my team gave me in my car."
Busch, who also won this
year at Phoenix, had his sev-
enth top-five finish and suc-
cessfully navigated a Pocono
track that was sharply criti-
cized by drivers this weekend.
NASCAR had the track
patched near the treacherous
tunnel turn before the race
after it was damaged in
Saturday's ARCA stock-car
race, causing some pre-race
concern from a few drivers.
The track's reputation already
took a hit after June's race
when drivers were victimized
by blown or cut tires.
While some drivers said it
was mostly the result of overag-
gressive driving, NASCAR
tried another approach by
installing a curb inside Turn
two that seemed to give 9me
drivers and theirtires fit$r,
Gordon and Wallace were
among'the drivers who"it ill
blasted the track's condiJon
even after the alterations,
though the curb and the small,
patched turn failed to give the
drivers any serious problems
on Sunday.
'"A little pavement job would-
n't hurt," Wallace said. "I
wouldn't complain, but hey I'm
never coming back so I don't
care."
When Kyle Busch slammed
into the turn one wall with 50
laps left, it was the first major
accident of the race and
brought out the caution. There
were few tire woes though
there were five straight debris
cautions.

Phelps fails in quest


Eliminated in

400 freestyle

preliminaries

Associated Press

MONTREAL Michael
Phelps won't match his medal
haul from the Athens
Olympics at the world swim-
ming championships.
In his very first race in
Montreal, Phelps shockingly
failed to qualify for the final
of the 400-meter freestyle and
an expected showdown with
Australian star Grant
Hackett
Phelps faded badly in the
seventh of eight preliminary
heats on a warm, sunny morn-
ing at Parc Jean-Drapeau.
The 20-year-old American
was third at the final turn, but
dropped all the way to sev-
enth next-to-last when
he touched in 3 minutes, 50.53
seconds.
That wasn't even close to
putting him among the eight
fastest swimmers, who moved
on to the evening final.
Hackett, as expected, was the
top qualifier in 3:44.63 -
nearly six seconds ahead of
Phelps.
Hanging on a lane rope,
Phelps stared at the score-
board with a look of disbelief,
then slowly made his way out
of the pool. He wound up 18th
overall and more than one-
and-a-half seconds behind
the last qualifier.
"Not the way I wanted to
start off," Phelps said. "It's
pretty disappointing. I felt
good in the warmup, but then
in the race, it wasn't there."
Phelps was the biggest star
of the Athens Olympics, win-
ning six golds and eight
medals overall. He sought to
duplicate that feat in
Montreal, qualifying for five
individual events with the
expectation of swimming all
three relays.
But this was never going to
be Athens all over again.
Looking to take his program
in new directions leading up
to the 2008 Beijing Games,
Phelps dropped two of his
world-record events: the 200
butterfly and 400 individual
medley


Associated Press
Michael Phelps, winner of eight medals including six golds at the Athens Olympics, looks at
the clock and realizes he did not qualify for the finals in the 400-meter freestyle.


In their place, Phelps
picked up two events of less
accomplishment the 100
and 400 free but the gam-
ble backfired on his first
morning at the Montreal pool.
."I was shocked when they
came off the wall and left
him," said Bob Bowman,
Phelps' longtime coach.
Thinking back, Bowman
said it's probably been five
years \since Phelps failed to
advance from a preliminary
heat
"I don't think you can write
off a whole meet just because
of a preliminary swim," the
coach said. "He has a very
good perspective on this."
Hackett swam in the final
heat, stepping on the blocks
fully aware of Phelps' flop.
"I'm awfully surprised," the
Aussie said. "I thought about
it for the first 200 meters of
the race, how much of a shock
it was."
Phelps will get to swim in
the evening finals as part of
the 400 freestyle relay team.
He sat out the prelims, but
the U.S. still managed the top
time, 3:16.04.

The Thorpedo is sitting out

"Obviously, I wasn't ready,"
Phelps said. "I've got to step
up and hopefully be better
than this. I've got to put this
behind me."
While Phelps is one of the
world's best in the 200 free,
Hackett wondered if the
American was properly pre-
pared for the longer event
"The 400 is a very different
event than the 200," Hackett
said. "The 400 probably needs
a little bit more time to pre-
pare ... I was disappointed he
was not going to be in the
final."
Hackett didn't have a let-
down in the pool, posting his
fastest heat time ever in the
400. The lone American to


advance was Peter
Vanderkaay, whose time of
3:47.59 beat his personal best
by nearly two seconds.
"He's in medal contention
if he makes a little drop
tonight," Bowman said.
France's Laure Manaudou
barely avoided the same fate
as Phelps in the women's 400
free prelim. The defending
Olympic champion claimed
the eighth and last spot
in the final at 4:11.46.
Manaudou was more than
three seconds slower than the
top qualifier, Canada's
Brittany Reimer at 4:08.28.
The two Americans, Carly
Piper and Kelsey Ditto, did
not advance.
The men's 100 breaststroke
is shaping up as another
memorable showdown
between American world
record holder Brendan
Hansen and Japan's Kosuke
Kitajima, who beat Hansen
for the gold medal in Athens.
Kitajima set a meet record
in the prelims, his time of
59.71 edging the mark he set
two years ago in Barcelona
(59.78). Hansen was right
behind at 59.84.


In his final Tour de France, Lance Armstrong finished
of Ivan Basso of Italy.


On the April morning when
Armstrong ended months of spec-
ulation about his future by
announcing this would be his last
Tour, he talked about how he
hoped it would play out
"Whenever I watch sport,
whatever sport it may happen to
be, I love to see the guy go out on
top," he said at the time. "I would
love to do that"
On the day he turned that long-
ing into fact, Armstrong also
talked about being inspired by
champions from other sports -
Jordan, Tiger Woods, Wayne
Gretzky and Andre Agassi and
called them "guys that you look
up to, guys that have been at the
top of their game for a long time."
But in quieter moments, he's
mentioned Jordan's departure
and return the second time -
as a kind of cautionary tale. And
while Gretzky appeared on the
same OLN telecast of the race
back in States, saying, "the great-
est time to retire for a profession-

'He could have went another

Keenan's anxious



to get started



remaking Panthers


Payroll situation

favors Florida

Associated Press

SUNRISE Flashing an
irrepressible grin that clearly
displayed his feelings about
the NHEs lockout finally end-
ing, Mike Keenan said
Saturday he's looking forward
to the work that awaits him
and the Florida Panthers.
Keenan, the team's general
manager, has a $30 million
payroll budget for the
coming season. With
that money, the
Panthers need to
negotiate new deals
with star goalie
Roberto Luongo,
highly touted defense-
man Jay Bouwmeester
and team captain Olli
Jokinen all among the
team's 12 restricted free
agents.
Florida currently has just
$6.4 million committed for
next year, but that only
includes deals with seven
players. Still, Keenan believes
the Panthers who made
their last Stanley Cup playoffs
appearance in 2000 are in
position to improve right away.
"We're one of the best-posi-
tioned teams in the league
because we don't have the
commitments financially,"
Keenan said. "We've got the
flexibility to be patient and
wait for those opportunities as
they come about ... We've got a
payroll situation right now
that's advantageous, that most
teams would like to have."
On Friday, more than a year
after a lockout silenced the
game, the NHEs board of gov-
ernors voted 30-0 to pass the
salary-cap based collective
bargaining agreement that the
players' association over-
whelmingly approved
Thursday.

realities of the new NHL are

Hornish bumps way to IRL win


Wins battle to

the wire with

Franchitti

Associated Press

*WEST ALLIS, Wis. Sam
Hornish Jr. had to pass Dario
Franchitti twice in the waning
laps Sunday before pulling
away for a hard-earned victory
in the A.J. Foyt 225 at the
'Milwaukee Mile.
Hornish, a two-time Indy
Racing League champion,
dominated early in the race,
biit slipped back on a hot, slip-
jpery track before coming on
-strong at the end to grab his
second win of the season and
'the 14th of his career.
S-With temperatures soaring
-ihto the mid-90s, there were
,several crashes, including one
'by rookie sensation Danica
-Patrick, who came away unin-
jured.


During the caution period
after Buddy Rice crashed on
lap 167, Andretti Green Racing
chose to keep Franchitti and
reigning IndyCar Series cham-
pion Tony Kanaan on the track
while the rest of the leaders
pitted hoping one of them
would win by conserving fuel
to the end.
It appeared the strategy
might work for Franchitti, the
defending Milwaukee champi-
on and coming off a victory last
week at Nashville, when
Hornish touched wheels with
Marlboro Team Penske team-
mate Helio Castroneves, send-
ing the Brazilian driver into
the wall and bringing out
another caution flag on lap 186.
Hornish restarted fourth
when the green flag waved
again on lap 196, but he quickly
passed series points leader
Dan Wheldon for third place,
chased down and passed
Kanaan for second on lap 201
and bore down on Franchitti.
The two leaders touched
wheels once as Hornish tried


to get outside Franchitti on lap
208. He finally did get the lead
on lap 211 and began to pull
away But Hornish's work was
far from done as he slid high
into turn one on lap 213, barely
keeping from hitting the wall
and allowing Franchitti to
retake the lead.
But with Franchitti still try-
ing desperately to conserve
fuel, Hornish regrouped and
chased him down once more,
easily charging past on lap 217
and pulling away to win by
0.384 seconds about three
car lengths.
The winner led a race-high
123 laps, giving team owner
Roger Penske his sixth
Milwaukee victory.
"The car was a little bit of a
handful today with the heat
and the slippery conditions,"
Hornish said. "There were a lot
of close calls out there. It's
great to get a win for the team
but it's too bad that Helio and I
got together. We run each other

Alonso captures German GP


.o .Associated Press

Fernando Alonso celebrates after winning the German Grand Prix, which moved
him closer to the Formula One championship.


Associated Press

HOCKENHEIM, Germany The
German Grand Prix resembled so
many other races this season: a victory
for Fernando Alonso and a breakdown
for Kimi Raikkonen.
Raikkonen started from the pole
Sunday and led comfortably until the
36th lap when his McLaren-Mercedes
stopped on the track with hydraulic
problems, the third time this season
he's led only to be forced out by
mechanical failure.
Alonso picked up his sixth victory of
the season, keeping the Spaniard on
course to become Formula One's
youngest champion.
He turns 24 on Friday, but is still cau-
tious about claiming the season title.


"(Raikkonen) has the best car and
we have to be careful," Alonso said,
"There are still 70 points to race but if
we keep finishing races, it will be diffi-
cult for him."
By collecting 10 points in the 67-lap
race, Alonso has 87 followed by
Raikkonen (51) and seven-time cham-
pion Michael Schumacher (47), who
finished fifth. Seven races remain.
Alonso was followed by McLaren-
Mercedes' Juan Pablo Montoya, who
started from the back of the grid but
charged back to finish second, ahead
of Jenson Button in a BAR-Honda.
Montoya started last after crashing in
Saturday's qualifying.
Giancarlo Fisichella, Alonso's team-
mate, was fourth ahead of defending
champion Michael Schumacher in a


Ferrari.
Schumacher acknowledged that his
chase is over.
"I don't think I can count myself in
this battle any more," he said.
Raikkonen may have the fastest car
in the field, but it hasn't been reliable.
"It's always terrible to retire from a
race, but to retire while in the lead
with a good gap to the No. 2 car is even
worse," Raikkonen said. "This is the
worst thing that could have happened
as it looked like the race was in the
bag.
"There is still a mathematical
chance that I can win the champi-
onship, but it's getting difficult," he
added.
Starting from dead-last, Montoya
treated second place like a victory.


Senior British title goes to Watson


Wins sudden-

,death playoff on

third extra hole

Associated Press

ABERDEEN, Scotland -
Tom Watson had already won
the British Open twice before he
figured out the nuances of links
golf. So there was no better
Jilace for him to end a two-year
drought on the Champions Tour.
"- In Scotland no less.
Watson matched Des Smyth
along the back nine at Royal
Aberdeen, then won a sudden-
death playoff with par on the
third extra hole Sunday to cap-
ture the Senior British Open for
his fourth senior major
- He also won the Senior
British Open two years ago at
Turnberry, and Watson won five
British Open titles during his
PGA Tour career, all but one of
them in Scotland.
"I really think that it goes back
'to my understanding of links

didn't particularly like links golf.
.I was an American golfer. I liked
it through the air, hit the ball
high, couldn't hit the ball low

(British Open).
After enduring a stormy three days that
included nearly 10 hours of rain delays, tor-

suspension on account of darkness, the
golfers slogged through a hot, humid final
day at Brown Deer Park, where the heat

kept the crowds down on Sunday, too.
Crane didn't mind the soggy course or the
sparse crowds.
His three-day total of 19-under-par 191 was
the best 54-hole start on tour this year and
just one stroke shy of the tournament record
set by Sluman in 2002. It was his first 54-hole
lead on tour, and his two-stroke advantage
over Verplank quickly doubled when
Verplank bogeyed No. 1 and Crane birdied
No. 2.
Crane holed out from 19 yards from the
first rough on No. 6 for an eagle to go to 21-
under and even though he bogeyed the next
hole, he made the turn with a four-shot lead
over Verplank, who, like the rest of the field,
never mounted a serious charge and shot a
71.

Rally in fourth

leads to a win

over East Lake

Chronicle

After a frustrating two-loss
Saturday destroyed their title
hopes, Crystal River's 11-
year-olds defended their


home turf aggressively
Sunday with an 8-3 win over
East Lake.
"They came out with a lot of
heart and pride, something
they didn't have yesterday,"
manager Mark Strifler said,
referring to a frustrating
opening day in which his
team was outscored 20-5 and
played poorly over two games.
Trailing 2-1, Crystal River
jumped ahead for good with a
two-run fourth. Sheldon
Baxter and Jacob Sanow each
singled to set the table with


one out. D.J. Layton walked to
load the bases and then East
Lake's wild pitch and throw-
ing error on the same play
allowed Baxter and pinch-
runner Adam Taylor to score.
The offensive surge contin-
ued an inning later with one
out when Jay Curry and
Donnie DeWees each singled
and advanced to second and
third on Baxter's groundout.
Baxter scored on a wild pitch,
Tyler Humphreys walked and
then Aaron Bertine cleared
the bases by ripping a


standup double deep into the
gap in right-center.
Armed with a four-run lead,
starting pitcher Humphreys
overcame some control prob-
lems to finish off a complete-
game two-hitter with five
strikeouts. Third baseman
Jeremy James bailed
Humphreys out of a bases-
loaded jam in the fifth by
snaring Nick Romary's sharp
liner and stepping on third
for the out.
Crystal River added two
insurance runs in the sixth


when Layton had a bunt sin-
gle, James reached on an
error, Nicolette Wunderly
advanced the runners with a
grounder to the right side,
Layton scored on a wild pitch
and Curry roped an RBI-dou-
ble.
Crystal River's other run
came in the second when
Baxter and Sanow drew walks
and Taylor singled to center to
drive in Baxter, who was beat-
en to home plate by the throw
by put on a nifty move to elude
the tag and slide in safely


East Lake rally stops Inverness SOFTBALL


STEVE WATERS

Chronicle

With their backs against the
wall, the Inverness Junior all-
stars knew that today's game
was a do-or-die situation. The
team lost both games Saturday
in the sectional tournament,
and they wanted to turn things
around with a win against an
undefeated East Lake team.
But despite strong defensive
play and several strong innings
on the mound, the potent East
Lake offense exploded late for
a 17-4 win in six innings Sunday
at Bicentennial Park.
: East Lake started strong in
the first with a two-run homer
to deep center hit by Kyle
Westwood. Inverness then set-


tled down on the field, striking
out two to end the inning with
only a small deficit.
Inverness then came back in
the bottom of the first on a two-
run single hit by Harlan Kelly,
scoring Kyle Blocker and Nick
Martone to tie the game at 2-all.
Blocker reached base off an
infield single, while Martone
reached on an error
The East Lake all-stars
responded in the third with two
runs scored from a pop-fly off
Lincoln Dinham, and a field-
er's choice hit by Martin Franco
that brought home Westwood,
who had reached base on a
double.
Inverness closed the gap in
the bottom of the inning, when
Martone hit into a fielder's
choice, allowing Cameron West


to sneak home to narrow the
lead to one.
In the fourth, East Lake
notched three runs to expand
the lead to 7-3. The first run
came on a passed ball that plat-
ed Chad Reiss, the other when
pinch-hitter Billy Nugent
scored after tagging up from
third. Ryan Hughes capped the
scoring by crossing the plate on
an error.
Though Inverness was still in
reach in the sixth, East Lake's
offense burst open with a mon-
ster inning, beginning with a
leadoff solo homerun from
Westwood, his second of the
day They then scored a run off
a stolen base, an RBI single, fol-
lowed by a two-run single and
another RBI base hit.
Later in the inning, East


Lake added four more runs,
including a two-run single from
Franco, making the score 17-3.
East lake finished the inning
scoring 10 runs off 10 hits.
Inverness tried to make a
comeback in the bottom of the
inning, getting both Geoffrey
Labrador and Logan Mails on
base. West later hit an RBI sin-
gle to bring Labrador home, but
East Lake held on for the win to
remain undefeated.
Adding to the losses, a 10-5
loss to Seminole and a 10-9 bat-
tle against Palma Ceia on
Saturday, Inverness also lost
leadoff hitter Steven Webb to
an ankle injury.
East Lake remained unde-
feated through the sectional
tournament at 3-0. Inverness
finished winless at 0-3.

Palm Harbor shuts out Central Citrus BASEBALL

For the Chronicle

It wasn't the weekend the Central Citrus
Major baseball team had hoped for, but one
positive shone through Sunday afternoon.
It was finally over.
Palm Harbor wrapped up an undefeated
campaign through the Section 7
Tournament by beating Central Citrus 13-0
in five innings at Bicentennial Park in
Crystal River.
The 'loss dropped District 15 winners
Central Citrus to 0-3 in pool play
Matt Kizer needed just one run of support
from his Palm Harbor teammates as the
pitcher spun a no-hitter Kizer finished one
batter short of a perfect game by issuing a
two-out walk in the second inning to
Christian Rodriguez.
"He threw a great game in the semi-finals
(of the district tournament)," said Palm


Harbor manager Marc Smith, whose team
finished 3-0 in pool play "But I never
expected him to throw a no-hitter"
Central Citrus never did look comfortable
at the plate, as Kizer finished the day with
six strikeouts.
The pitching on the other side wasn't the
same story. Steve Arcidipane went 1 1/3
innings in taking the loss.
Palm Harbor started off the game by plat-
ing a run on a fielder's choice that scored
Casey Turgeon to take a 1-0 lead after a half
inning of play
After Kizer sat down the side (two via
strikeouts) in the bottom half, Central Citrus
ran into more trouble. '
Forest Gibson reached on an infield sin-
gle. Kizer followed with a potential double-
play ball to shortstop but an error put run-
ners at first and second.
Arcidipane got a groundout by Mike Kelly
back to the pitcher for the first out and then
another ground ball by Mike Lipton to third.


Duke's Alexander


ready to get going

Associated Press just being able to do things.
Three months was taken


HOT SPRINGS, Va. -
Phillip Alexander's season
lasted five quarters in 2004.
The Duke defensive end
broke his leg early in the sec-
ond game against
Connecticut while blocking
as cornerback John Talley
was returning an intercep-
tion for a touchdown.
Another player rolled over
Alexander's leg and he was
done for the year
"I'm about 95 percent,"
Alexander said Sunday at the
Atlantic Coast Conference
Media Kickoff. "If the open-
ing game was today I'd be in
the starting lineup."
His work in the offseason
did more than simply rehab
the injury Alexander gained
about 25 pounds in the
weight room, and the extra
strength should be a big help
when the Blue Devils open
their season Sept 3 at East
Carolina. After a long wait to
even walk again, it can't come
soon enough.
"It's been a long time,"
Alexander said. "I really
gained an appreciation of
just walking, because I could-
n't get around. I've also got a
new appreciation for the
game, for being in college and


away from me."
Baker Takes Over
Quarterback Darian Durant left
North Carolina with a slew of
school records. Now Matt Baker
takes over.
In mopup duty last season,
Baker was impressive, complet-
ing 23 of 36 passes for 326
yards and a touchdown. He
doesn't expect any changes this
season with the offense, since
he's very familiar with the system
used by the Tar Heels. And he
isn't worried about replacing
Durant.
"It's not on my mind, it's on
everyone else's mind," Baker
said. "I'm not going to go out
and try to be Darian Durant."
Ball's Confidence
Reggie Ball burst on the
scene at Georgia Tech in 2003
and became the first true fresh-
man to start a season opener
for the Yellow Jackets.
He took a big step back last
season when he failed to com-
plete half his passes and threw
18 interceptions. Still, Georgia
Tech made a big splash with its
second consecutive bowl rout,
beating Syracuse 51-14 in the
Champs Sports Bowl.

But the error bug bit once again as Lipton
reached safely and Gibson scored from
third to stake Palm Harbor to a two-run
advantage.
Turgeon followed with an RBI single to
right for a 3-0 lead. A passed ball and a wild
pitch during Connor Oliveri's at-bat plated
two more runs before Arcidipane was
pulled in favor of Andrew Gage.
The pitching wasn't Central Citrus' only
shortcoming in the loss. The team simply
did not play well in any area.
By the end of the second inning Palm
Harbor took an 8-0 lead and, behind Kizer's
performance, appeared to be in total con-
trol.
For the game, Palm Harbor took advan-
tage of 11 hits and four Central Citrus
errors to swing the game decidedly in its
favor
"It was just a team effort," Smith said.
"Every player contributed something in
every game throughout the tournament"


"We've got three really
strong pitchers on this team
and I was counting on those
guys to take us through it, and
they did," manager Mike
Roberson said. '"All three of
them pitched well. Our bats
came around too, which I've
been waiting on."
Hannah wasn't the only
Dunnellon player with impres-
sive offensive numbers. Bryan
Neal and Shane Williams each
had three hits and combined
for four runs scored and two
RBIs, while Nick Hooper also
scored three times. Ryan
Molloy doubled, scored twice
and drove in two.
Dunnellon scored three
times in the second to take a


ACC set for first champions


Associated Press

HOT SPRINGS, Va. Two
players from each Atlantic
Coast Conference school got
together Sunday for a group
picture at the annual media
kickoff, and the conversation
quickly turned to the new divi-
sional alignments.
There was one slight prob-
lem no one seemed to know
where his team fit.
With the ACC finally expand-
ed to its full 12 teams for the
upcoming season, the league
will split into the Atlantic and
Coastal divisions. The winners
meet in the first championship
game Dec. 3 in Jacksonville
"I don't think anybody
knows," North Carolina quar-
terback Matt Baker said. "We
were all tapping each other on
the shoulder and asking. It's the
first year and it's new, and no
one has played each other in
the division yet. I think by the
end of the season, people will
start checking out the stand-
ings, and that's when everybody
will know where they are."
The teams aren't divided geo-
graphically, so that led to the
somewhat ambiguous names of
the divisions. The conference
tried to come up with two equal
divisions and started the

process by separating longtime
powers Florida State and
Miami.
Each division has two of the
North Carolina schools, and
both Virginia and Virginia Tech
are in the Coastal with the
Hurricanes.
"I think it's pretty even,
everybody has a fair shot,"
North Carolina State wide
receiver Tramain Hall said.
"Whatever team comes out of
this deserves to be there,


because this ACC is not easy"
Boston College officially
joined the league July 1, ending
a bitter split with the Big East
and giving the ACC enough
teams to qualify for the lucra-
tive championship game.
Miami and Virginia Tech start-
ed play last season, and the
Hokies surprisingly won the
title by edging the Hurricanes
16-10 in the final regular season
game.
The Seminoles had dominat-
ed the conference since becom-
ing a member in 1992, finishing
with at least a share of first in
11 of the first 12 years. They fin-
ished a game behind Virginia
Tech a year ago, but equaling
that effort might be difficult in
2005.
Already, Florida State has
lost cornerback Antonio
Cromartie (knee injury) and
quarterback Wyatt Sexton
(Lyme disease) for the season,
and the status of linebackers
Ernie Sims and A.J. Nicholson
is in doubt after both had run-
ins with police.
Sims was arrested following
an early morning fight with his

versity residence hall, and
Nicholson had a pair or run-ins

misdemeanor DWI. Also, defen-

Despite his team's high1,
hopes fading into a 1-2 finish,
Strifler accentuated the po$-&
tive after the game.
"They need to take away-
from this the fact that they:
were all all-stars, for starters;'"
he said. "Not everybody gets:
to be an all-star. They weie;
district champs and they got,
to play in sectionals against
other district champs.
"Hopefully it will carry over,
to next year," he added. "It:
should be a good group of 12-
year-olds."

before he can be readmitted to]
the university. _
"I think we're the same
Florida State," defensive end
Kamerion Wimbley said. "I jusA
think other teams have gotteI
better in our conference. The
only thing that has kept us out
of the national championship
is a few plays here or there,
and if you switch those around,
we'd be right back where we've
always been."
Whether that's at the top of
the Atlantic division is another
question not that Wimbley
knows who the Seminoles have
to beat to get there.
"I don't know everybody
that's in our division, but I do
know everybody in the ACd,"
he said. "I know the teams thht
have just joined. But I think a
it goes on, everybody will leanr
who's in What division." '
While the players struggled
with how the conference wa
broken down, none had any
problems with why it was done.
"Bringing in more teams
brings in more moneg"
Virginia Tech defensive end
Darryl Tapp said. "I'm in matP

Woman tries to hide depression from family


Dear Annie: I'm a 35-year-old
mother of five. In January, I was
rushed to the hospital because I
thought I was having a heart attack. It
turned out to be a pulmonary embolism
(a blood clot in the lungs). After leaving
the hospital, I did everything
the doctor told me. I quit A'
makingg cold turkey after 20
years, and I changed my diet
, Physically, I feel fine, but
mentally, I'm losing it I cry -
E.}l the time. My husband and
.children have been wonder-
ful and supportive, but they
don't know how I really feel.
( tell them my eyes are puffy
from allergies.) Please help
mle. New York -
. ,Dear N.Y.: It is not unusu- ANN
"al for a life-threatening MAIL
vent to cause depression.
J~his is a natural reaction to stress and
fear. And for some people, giving up
smoking can cause depression' all by
itself Instead of feeling empowered by
your recent decisions, you are adrift.
,o Stop hiding from your family Let
4hem know you are depressed and you
Peed some short-term professional
help. Then go back to your doctor and
psk for a referral to a therapist.
0, Dear Annie: I read the letter from
"Needing to Know," who discovered that
pr husband, "Buddy," has been seeing
prostitutes. She asked why men do this.
.I did the same thing myself. It had


I


absolutely NOTHING to do with my wife
- she was a wonderful woman and a
passionate lover But I was selfish and
felt entitled to have whatever sex I want-
ed, anytime, anyplace. Did I compare
these prostitutes to my wife? Yes, and not
one of them could come close
-. to satisfying me the way she
did. The fact that I'm truly
sorry doesn't change my be-
trayal. Men, don't be stupid. If
you have a good wife, take
care of her Husband X
... Dear Husband X: We were
amazed at the number of
responses we received on
S this subject. Read on for
some enlightenment:
From Nevada: Most men
SE'S see escorts because we are
BOX willing and nonjudgmental.
He is never too old, too fat,
too ugly, too bald. He never has bad
breath, bad technique, bad manners.
They like that we don't ask for commit-
ments. Plus, we cater to fetishes. You'd
be amazed how many clients tell us they
love their wives. Some of us are mar-
ried ourselves. We are just doing our
jobs. I never heard of a husband who
ran off with a hooker. Please tell that
wife to relax.
California: After four years of living
together, the love of my life told me he
had been going to prostitutes since he
was 19. When I asked why, he said he
was a sex addict and that it had nothing


to do with me, my attractiveness or my
sexual ability.
Midwest: Buddy may have undiag-
nosed manic depression. Sexual devi-
ance is a common sign of mania. Coun-
seling and medication can help him.
Thailand: There is another reason
men wish to have sex with prostitutes:
ready sex without having to create a
relationship. Men have a sex drive that
is more lustful than the average
woman's, and can feel as casual about
intercourse as shaking hands with a
stranger.
Kansas: For me, it was the sure thing.
Even though I knew the ladies didn't
mean what they said, I still needed to
hear it. I liked the ability to talk sexual-
ly with them and how adventurous they
were. Simply put, for money, I could get
it when I wanted and as often as I want-
ed.
N.Y.: I am a (female) retired New
York state trooper. Most of the prosti-
tutes I arrested had missing teeth,
unhealthy stick-thin bodies from being
addicted to drugs and looked prema-
turely aged. I also agree "Needing"
should get tested for sexually transmit-
ted diseases, as a majority of the hook-
ers I arrested had at least one.
California: Buddy doesn't suffer, from
"low self-esteem." He suffers from a
lack of self-respect. I recommend coun-
seling not from a psychologist, but
from a pastor. Buddy is seeking redemp-
tion.

PHILLIP ALDER
Newspaper Enterprise Assn.

Sir Winston Churchill said,
"There is no finer investment for
any community than putting milk
into babies."
There is a vague "baby" segue
into this deal. How did East try to
defeat four spades after West led
the diamond king?
Although South had weak
spades, with a six-loser hand
(three spades, two hearts and one
diamond), he made a game-try
with three hearts. Perhaps his
partner was 3-5 in the majors.
North was happy to jump to game
because all of his honors were in
his partner's two bid suits.
Declarer thought that he need-
ed one major-suit finesse to work
So, he won with his diamond ace
and ran the spade 10.
If East, as most of us would have
done, had taken the trick with his
spade queen, declarer would have
driven a trump entry to the
dummy and relied successfully
- on the heart finesse.
Aided by the auction, East
sensed what was happening. He
took trick two with his spade ace.
Then he shifted to the heart two.
Now look at matters from
South's point of view. Surely West
had the spade queen. So, appar-
ently the contract was in danger

only if East had switched to a sin-
gleton heart.' Then, if declarer
finessed, West would win with the
king and give East a heart ruff.
Instead, South, thinking he was
safe, won with his heart ace and
played a spade to dummy's jack-
But East produced the queen out
of his back pocket, cashed the
heart king, and played a diamond
to his partner: one down,,s
Impolitely, the saying about tak-
ing candy from a baby crossed
East's mind.

Your Birthday: In the year ahead, you may find your
ambitions to be considerably enhanced and you won't
be afraid to take on several large endeavors you nor-
mally would not have undertaken.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Your concentration will
help you make some valuable judgment calls today
from what you observe happening around you.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) This is a propitious time
for embarking on a joint venture with someone who
possesses valuable experience you lack.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Something for which
you've been hoping, but had difficulty in attaining, can
be brought into being today.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) You won't be content
with mediocre objectives or projects today, so don't
waste your time on petty goals. Use your talents to
attain something that's substantial and meaningful.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)- If you can afford to
do so, change your customary routines today in ways
that will have a salutary effect upon you. Try to bring
some sunshine into your life through fun involvements.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your material
prospects look far more encouraging today for you than
usual.


Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Many times, it is fqr
wiser to proceed alone unencumbered by others, espe-
cially in your case. However, today you are likely to be
fortunate when doing things in tandem with others.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) This may be one of
those rare days where you could be blessed with the
Midas touch in all of your endeavors. Focus your efforts
and interests in fields that promise a financial harvest: '

in and take charge of a situation today that you feel is
being bungled by an associate. This person won't mind
a bit; in fact, he or she will welcome the assistance.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) When it comes to any
commercial dealings today, you're more likely to get
what you want if you soften your approach with a little
levity. Keep everything breezy right up to the close.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) Should you find your-
self getting the best of another in a competitive situation
today, try to leave your opponent a little room to sae
face. Praise his or her efforts and underplay your own.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) It won't be sheer luck
that contributes to a healthy growth of your holdings Or
material well being today, it will be prudence, persi-L
ence and endurance that advances your interests.
