ENTERPRISE, Ala. - Presi-
dent Bush handed out hugs to
residents who survived killer
tornadoes that ripped through
Alabama and Georgia and
offered encouraging words


Saturday at Enterprise High
School where students grieved
the loss of eight classmates.
"Today I have walked
through devastation that is
hard to describe," Bush said,
standing with his arm around a
student who had a tear running
down her face. "Our thoughts,
of course, go out to the students
who perished. We thank God
for the hundreds who lived."


Bush made


the hastily


arranged trip to highlight his.
administration's stepped-up
efforts, especially by the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency, to provide imme-
diate help to disaster victims.
The White House came under
withering criticism for its
response to Hurricane Katrina
in 2005.
In all, 20 people were killed
by 31 tornadoes that struck the

Turnout for strawberries good until clouds unleashed torrents; Forecast better for today

Months of dry weather gave way to
an afternoon of heavy rain Saturday,
but the timing was less than perfect
for the 20th annual Floral City
Strawberry Festival.
People began streaming out of the
festival around 1 p.m. when it became
apparent the showers were not abat-
ing. The more hardy souls escaped


the early onslaught of showers under
the big entertainment tent and where
Sheila and Jim Harpin belted out
country tunes.
Bob Bitner's lemonade stand
attracted few customers in the chilly
rain, a drastic change from last year
when he said people were willing to
wait in long lines to buy a cool drink
in the sunny, warm weather.
John Ring, membership chairman
of the Citrus County Veterans
Coalition, signed up six new members


before the rain soaked the paper-
work Ring said the festival turnout
had been good, even while it was
sprinkling rain in the morning.
"They didn't mind a little rain, but
when it started coming down hard,
that was it," he said.
The coalition serves as an advocacy
group for veterans and has more than
3,000 members from all branches of
the service.
Suzanne Clemente, who organized
the festival for the Citrus County


Chamber of Commerce, said she had
predicted 10,000 people .would turn
out for the festival earlier in the day,
before the heavy rains. She was still
optimistic.
Chronicle volunteer Trina Murphy
pulled out her palm-sized portable
computer and showed Clemente a
radar image of the weather overhead.
It wasn't promising for the remainder
of Saturday.

Thursday. From his Marine
One helicopter, Bush got a
bird's eye view of damaged
areas of the two states where
trees stood without tops, roofs
were pockmarked with holes, a
steeple rested on the ground in
front of a church and wide
swaths of homes and business-
es lay in shambles.

Pat Gratton can do it.
That's been her attitude all
her life and the key that
opened doors for her, includ-
ing writing a daily newspaper
column for 10 years, hosting
her own radio and cable TV
program, writing three cook-
books, running a restaurant,
an ice cream stand and a cater-
ing company.
At 65, after trying retirement
for a few years, Gratton has
discovered she's not the retire-
ment type and is eager to work
again.
"I am more available now
than I ever have been in my
whole life," she said. "I'm in
excellent health and there's
nothing holding me back. I'm
not going to move away - and
I'm not going to get preg-
nant!"
But at 65,. she's not 30 any-
more, and she's finding that
employers aren't as eager to
hire her as she is eager to be
hired.
But that's not stopping her,
she said. She knows there's a
place for her; she just hasn't
found it yet
"You know that song, 'Is That
All There Is?' When I was 30,
that's where I was," she said.
That was the beginning of her
varied career in her town of
Franklin, Mass.

They first met Mark, Ruth

Jessica went missing from her

"Really, from Feb. 24 on, we
didn't leave," Prus said.
The Citrus County Sheriff's
Office victim advocates watched
as a distraught family tried to
deal with the fact that their 9-
year-old girl had disappeared.
They helped answer the
phone that didn't stop ringing
in the family's Homosassa

They reminded the family to
take care of basic needs - eat-

"Our main goal is to ensure

This may seem like a given,
but people involved with crime
cases each have a specific role.
Detectives are charged with
figuring out what happened.
Lawyers and judges are sup-

WINCHCOMBE, England -
Elizabeth Hurley married an
Indian businessman in a pri-

mony at a 15th
century castle,
and photogra-

guests including Elton John,
Kate Moss and Hurley's ex,
Hugh Grant.
Security guards on Saturday
patrolled the castle grounds,
set amid the Cotswold hills of
western England. A large tent
had been erected in the
grounds, and a covered walk-
way led to the building.
Several shopfronts in the
picturesque town were
adorned with signs and
notices wishing the couple
good luck
"Obviously, people are out
celebrity spotting - I don't
think they'll see any but they
are out at the thought - and
it's just a lot of excitement for
the small town of
Winchcombe," said butcher
Colin Pileher.
According to reports, the
couple will celebrate in India.

Charges expected in Polk fire


Crews remain on alert after blaze

torches six houses and several acres


Associated Press
FROSTPROOF - Fire offi-
cials on Saturday were moni-
toring the remnants of a brush
fire that destroyed six homes ,
as well as several other struc-
tures and prompted the
mandatory evacuation of hun-



Science


fairs


losing


luster
DENISE-MARIE BALONA
Orlando Sentinel
ORLANDO - Science fairs
used to be big deals - compe-
titions that exercised critical-
thinking, research and public
speaking.
But participation in county
science fairs has dropped dra-
matically among Florida high-
school students - ironically, at
the same time the state has
ordered teachers to focus
more intensely on biology,
chemistry and other sciences.
The new science portion of
the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test, in fact, is
helping fuel the trend because
teachers and students are so
occupied with the FCAT, they
don't spend as much time and
effort on science fairs, many
educators say.
"It doesn't free them up for
sustained- inquiry or creativi-
ty," said Dan McFarland,.a past
president of, the Florida
S Association of Science
Teachers.
For example, 97 teens from
seven Orange County high
schools entered projects in the
regional fair. That's 40 percent
fewer than last year.
Entries fell nearly as much
in nearby Volusia County,
organizers said. And in
Seminole County, only two of
10 public high schools signed
up. Of the two Seminole
schools, one submitted just
one project.
The downturn elsewhere in
the region is part of a trend
that started years ago, educa-
tors said.
It's troubling, they said, con-
sidering the nation is in dire
need of chemists, engineers
and others to replace those
retiring en masse from sci-
ence-heavy careers.
McFarland said teachers are
so focused on required class-
work that many no longer force
students to participate in sci-
ence fairs. Teens don't have
the same freedom to explore
and inquire, which is key to
building science skills.
Educators also blamed the
drop in interest on competi-
tion with other contests that
draw young science whizzes -
for example, robotics competi-
tions, the prestigious Intel
Science Talent Search and
Odyssey of the Mind.
Some educators think tough
standards encourage only the
smartest students - the ones
who already spend weekends
and summers working in can-
cer labs and university
research institutes. That
leaves a lot of students feeling
as if they can't compete.


dreds in the area, authorities
said.
No injuries were reported
after the blaze Friday in a
mostly rural area east of Lake
Wales.
The fire destroyed 14 struc-
tures including the homes and
several barns and sheds, coun-


ty spokeswoman Kristin Guira
said Saturday.
Officials estimates between
100 and 500 acres burned and
up to 100 homes were threat-
ened at one point, Guira said.
Between 100 and 200 homes
were evacuated, but residents
were allowed to return the
homes late Friday night.
"The Division of Forestry is
still on site monitoring the
scene to ensure, the flames
don't flare back up," Guira


said.
Wind gusts of 35 mph caused
the fire to spread quickly,
Guira said.
Smaller brush fires also
occurred Friday in Brevard
and Lake counties.
About 10 acres burned in
Palm Bay in Brevard County,
destroying two sheds and one
vehicle, and threatening as
many as 50 homes in the area,
officials said Saturday.
Authorities suspect foul play


and charges are expected, said
Yvonne Martinez, the city's
spokeswoman.
Downed power lines in Lake
County along the Florida
Turnpike also caused brush
fires, forcing authorities to
shut down the turnpike for sev-
eral hours, said Sgt. Christie
Mysinger, spokeswoman for the
Lake County Sheriff's Office.
No homes were damaged or
injuries reported, Mysinger
said.

Charitable move by movie star results in a key to the city


John Travolta donates $15,000

to central Florida tornado victims


Associated Press
OCALA - John Travolta
donated $15,000 to central
Florida tornado victims at the
hometown premiere of his new
film "Wild Hogs."
Travolta presented a person-
al check for $15,000 to Lady


Lake Mayor Max Pullen before
the film screening Friday night
in Ocala that raised an addi-
tional $15,000 in donations. A
string of tornadoes killed 21
people, many from Lady Lake,
and destroyed hundreds of
home as they skipped across
central Florida in the early


morning of Feb. 2.
"These things happen in
Florida and when they happen
we all have to do something to
help," said Travolta, who has
lived in Ocala for about four
years.
"I just felt the time was
right," he said. "We're promot-
ing a movie. I think the best
movie openings and promo-
tions are when you can do it for
charity and help people. I live
here. These are my people."


I live here. These are my people.

John Travolta
movie star and Ocala resident.


Pullen said he was moved by
Travolta's gesture, and Ocala
Mayor Randy Ewers presented
the actor with a key to the city.
"This means a lot and helps


lift the spirit of our people,"
Pullen said. "When they know
somebody as big a star as John
Travolta cares about them, it
makes a difference."

accompany victims to deposi-
tions, hearings and court pro-
ceedings. The advocates also
help set up services such as
counseling, funeral services
and understand what their
rights are.
For instance, victims can
request their names be with-
held from public record and
can request transportation for
court proceedings.
They may be entitled to
money to pay funeral services
and compensation for their
losses.
Basically, the advocates
make victims aware of what's
going on and the resources
available to them.
The Lunsford case
Initially, Prus and Bow-
ermaster weren't welcomed
by the Lunsfords with open
arms. The family was over-
whelmed by law enforcement
and the emotions of losing
Jessie when the advocates
stepped into the picture the
afternoon of the third-grader's
disappearance.
But after a few days, the
women slowly gained the trust
of the family.
The advocates answered the
never-ending phone calls.
They answered any questions
they could for the family.
The first week, the advocates
spent about 12 to 16 hours each
day with the family
During the past two years,
they've logged well over 1,000
hours.
"You can't spend that many'
hours with a family and not
develop a relationship,"
Bowermaster said.
Typically, each advocate has
about 20 cases at any time.
They deal with people who are
hurt - emotionally hurt, the
kind of hurt that can eat you
away Prus said that's why they
try to maintain an emotional
distance from the people they
work with.
But with the Lunsfords,
things are different.
Both women said they now
feel like members of the family.
The Lunsfords' dog, Corky,

Enterprise, a city of 22,000 in
the southeastern corner of the
state, was still standing. But
the nearby high school, scene
of the worst loss of life, looked
as if it had been smashed by a
wrecking ball.
Bush climbed over piles of
black roofing, concrete, broken
glass and math textbooks that
littered the remains of the
school for 1,200. He was taken
on a private tour of a hallway,
lined with blue lockers, where
the eight students died and
scores of others were trapped
when the ceiling and walls col-
lapsed.
'The biggest effect of the
storm is the shattered lives,"
Bush said. "We can rebuild
buildings."
Meg King, 18, was in the hall-
way, about a classroom away
from where her classmates
died.


doesn't even bark at them any-
more.
Either Prus or Bowermaster
are with them at every court
event.
Because the trial was moved
to Miami, the advocates made
arrangements for one of the
two of them to be with the fam-
ily throughout the duration.
"Basically, wherever they
will be, we will be," Prus said.
You could see the depth of
their relationship with Ruth on
Thursday when the grand-
mother took the stand.
Ruth Lunsford's testimony
was straightforward and well-
spoken. She didn't cry. She did-
n't get upset. But when she left
the stand, she went back to her
bench only to sit next to
Bowermaster, tightly clutching
her hand.
It's the type of thing friends
do for each other.
Prus and Bowermaster said
one of the harder things to deal
with is protecting the family.
Bowermaster recalls about a
year or two ago when a news
station worked out an agree-
ment to shoot video inside the
Lunsford household. The fami-
ly allowed a few media agen-
cies to do this, but one group in
particular rearranged the fur-
niture in the Lunsford's living
room - without permission -
and then left without moving
everything back to its proper
place.
Other times, reporters and
news producers have called in
the wee morning hours or late
into the evening - it's frustrat-
ing for the family who tries to
be media-friendly.
During the trial, Mark, Ruth
and Archie have requested
that media respect their priva-
cy until a verdict is reached.
They don't mind being pho-
tographed, but won't give inter-
views until the end.
Knowing Jessica
The Lunsfords' victim advo-
cates never met Jessica per-
sonally. The little girl who stole
the hearts of the nation with
her wide grin and pink hat has
done the same to the victim
advocates.
"I've seen as many baby pic-
tures of her as I have my own
kids," Bowermaster said.
"They are truly family for us."

"It was like a movie," said
King, who was soaking wet
from the rain and covered with
parts of the ceiling after the
tornado swept the campus.
"Everybody was confused and
it was just really chaotic. And
it was hard to walk through
and see people who were
hurt."
The president also saw a
wing of the school - now a pile
of rubble - where students
had hunkered down as the tor-
nado approached.
"A hundred kids got out of
here alive, which is a mira-
cle," the president said in dis-
belief.
On the second leg of his visit,
Bush toured Americus, Ga.,
about 120 miles south of
Atlanta, where storms killed
two people and destroyed
dozens of homes and business-
es. A tornado smashed into
Sumter Regional Hospital, fill-
ing it with glass, dirt and debris
and flooding two operating
rooms. It was deemed unsafe
for its 100 patients.

CITRus COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


WORK
Continued from Page 1A

:out of high school as most
'women of her generation had
:done. She hadn't gone to col-
lege. Her parents sent her
,brother, since eventually he
:would be the one to support a
:family and needed an educa-
,tion more than she did.
, With some secretarial
:skills, Gratton worked for
,three contractors while rais-
'ing her own family. Then she
,hit 30 and wondered if that
,was all there was to life. She
ihad creativity and a desire to
,use it. Then, while reading
:her local paper one day, she
,had a thought.
' She decided the paper
,needed something for women
:readers and that she could be
:the one to fill it. At the time,
:the Boston Globe ran a col-
,umn of household hints and
.recipes and she thought she
:could do something similar.
, So, she made an appoint-
ment with the editor at the
Woonsocket Call and present-
ed her proposal.
"From day one, I was into
'marketing," she said. "I
*walked into the paper like I
.knew exactly what I was
doing, even though I was mar-
keting a column that no one
'ever heard of."
Her column, "Among
*Ourselves," answered read-
ers' household questions,
:from recipes and stain
.removal to party planning
,and sewing tips.
"In the beginning, I was
writing letters to me from
,me," she said with a laugh,
"'but they were very nice let-
ters."
As the column caught on,
-the letters poured in and
readers would write in with
their household hints.
Gratton was paid $25 per col-
umn, five days a week.
Eventually, the column ran in
five different newspapers.


MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle
Pat Gratton has held a variety of jobs in her 65 years. No longer
wanting to be retired and on a fixed income, the Citrus Hills resi-
dent says finding work is a difficult process.


The newspaper also owned
a radio station, and one day
Gratton was the guest on a
call-in show. Callers were
invited to call in and "Ask
Pat" anything they wanted.
"The phones never quit,"
she said, and when the show
ended, the station manager
offered Gratton her own daily
half-hour show.
She had never written a col-
umn before, and she did.
Now, with no radio experi-
ence, she did that, too - for
25 years.
'Here's Pat Gratton!'
"I'll never forget my first
show," she said. "My jingle
came on and (the announcer
said), 'Here's Pat Gratton!' I
was in a room with no win-
dows and a telephone in front
of me and I said, 'Good morn-
ing, everyone. This is a first

looking around and I'm think-

there's nobody to talk to. My
mother always told me that if
I talk to myself it meant I had
money in the bank or I was
crazy. Well, I don't have any
money and I don't think I'm
crazy, so please call.'"
They called steadily for 25
years, even after she went to
another radio station.
"It was a competitor's sta-
tion," she said. "It meant giv-
ing up my column, but they
offered cable TV At that time,
women were going back to
work and they didn't have
time to write their lovely let-
ters to me anyway."
With radio and TV, Gratton
had to get her own advertis-
ers, so she continually mar-
keted herself. In' addition, she
wrote ad copy and produced
the commercials.
Meanwhile, she became a
celebrity in her hometown.


She did public speaking and
judged pie contests. She
wrote three cookbooks and
had her own cooking show
and real estate show on TV
In the middle of all that, she
owned an ice cream stand
and a restaurant, Pat
Gratton's Town Chef.
"One day, a customer said,
'Will you please tell your wife
not to advertise airplanes on
her show, because if she did,
my wife would buy one,"
Gratton's husband Bill said.
"Whatever she advertised,
people bought."
The restaurant, however,
was Gratton's least favorite
endeavor, she said, .because it
consumed too much time. She
sold it after three and a half
years and bought a catering
company, which she kept
until moving to Citrus Hills
seven years ago.
"Citrus Hills was one of my
advertisers," she said.
Not one to sit still, upon
retirement she jumped into
volunteering; she played
bunco, got into sewing, craft-
ing and painting.
"Then I thought, 'This is
ridiculous - I want to go back
to work,' " she said. She took
classes at Central Florida
Community College and pol-
ished her resume. Currently,
she tutors and takes notes for
hearing-impaired students at
the college.
.And she's out marketing
herself again, although it's
not the same as when she was
younger. The first three job
rejections she took personal-
ly, but that hasn't discouraged
her.
"Every time I planned
something and there was an
opportunity, I took it," she
said. "I knew I could do it,
even if I hadn't done it before.
It's a positive attitude I've
had all my life. I know I can
do it.
"Now I've come full circle,"
she said, "and I'm ready to go
around again."

Young voters are a fickle force


Associated Press

WASHINGTON - Ah, youth,
that fickle force in politics.
Young people bring energy, pas-
sion, creativity and technical
wizardry to the presidential
campaign - everything, it
seems, except impact on
Election Day.
With their Web logs,
Facebook profiles and college
rallies, the 2008 presidential
candidates are lavishing atten-
tion on a group that displays
unbridled enthusiasm early in
the campaign but tends to lose
interest when the voting starts.
For all the star-studded voter
registration drives featuring the
likes of Madonna and Sean
"Diddy" Combs, more than.half
of the people in the United
States age 18 to 24 who are eli-
gible to vote typically are no-
shows on Election Day. By com-
parison, some 70 percent of

was not aware that he had a pro-
file on Facebookcom, the social
networking Web site with some
10 million users; an aide
assured him that he did.
The profile highlights the for-
mer Massachusetts governor's
interests (skiing, running,
spending time with family, espe-
cially grandchildren) and
favorite music (Roy Orbison, the
Beatles, the Eagles).
The profile has encouraged
supporters to form their own
groups, "My Man Mitt," "College
Students for Mitt Romney," and
"Mitt for Michigan," among oth-
ers.
One Facebook group backing
Democratic Sen. Barack Obama
has more than 300,000 mem-
bers. It was Facebook that
helped turn out several thou-
sand people at a rally for the
Illinois senator at George
Mason University in Virginia
several weeks ago.
Joe Trippi, the Internet savvy
campaign manager of Democrat
Howard Dean's 2004 White
House bid, said there was no
way the Obama campaign alone
could have organized an event
that drew 3,000 at such an early
stage in the campaign.


Obama spokesman Dan
Pfeiffer said much interest in
the 45-year-old candidate
among younger voters, particu-
larly the activity on the Internet,
has sprung up independent of
the campaign.
"Our task as a campaign is to

Republican John McCain's
outreach to younger voters
includes establishing an online
social network called

ers can create their own pages
and connect with one another.

Anarchists flock to Copenhagen to join riots


Associated Press
COPENHAGEN, Denmark-
Anarchists from across north-
ern Europe flocked to join pro-
testers in the Danish capital on
Saturday after two nights of
riots sparked by the eviction of
squatters from an abandoned
building that had been a center
for young leftists and punk


rockers.
More than
including
scores of for-
eigners, have
been arrested
since the riots
started
Thursday.

cobblestones and set fire to
cars.
A school was also vandalized
and several buildings damaged
by fire early Saturday. One pro-
tester was reportedly wounded
in the violence, while 25 were
injured the night before in
what police have called
Denmark's worst riots in a
decade.
More scuffles were reported
in various parts of the city
Saturday night after a day of
relative calm. Dozens of police
vans patrolled the streets and
broke up gatherings of protest-
ers to prevent larger mobs from
forming. Police said several of
those arrested were carrying
Molotov cocktails or firecrack-
ers, but that no major violence
was reported.
Police said activists from
Sweden, Norway and Germany
had joined hundreds of Danish
youth in the protests. Sympathy
protests were held in Germany,
Norway, Sweden and Finland.
Peter Vesterheden, the head
of Copenhagen's prisons, said
25 foreigners had been arrest-
ed.
Critics said the demonstra-
tions were misguided because
they target a Scandinavian wel-
fare state that ranks among the
world's most egalitarian coun-


tries.
"The spoiled kids in the
Youth House woke up to reality
in Danish society where you
have a job and pay rent,"
Anders Fredrik Mihle of the
governing Liberal Party's youth
wing said, referring to the
building where the squatters
had been evicted.
Like its neighbors, Denmark
has a generous welfare system


supported by high taxes.
Education is
free and health

ing the retire-

The protest-
ers see their fight to keep the
"Youth House," a four-story
building used by young squatters
since the 1980s, as symbolic of a
wider struggle against a capital-
ist establishment

of struggle to keep what is ours,"
said Jan, a 22-year-old activist
who has been coming to the
building for the last 10 years. He
declined to give his last name,
saying that was the norm among
people frequenting the building.
The riots were sparked when
an anti-terror squad on
Thursday evicted the squatters
from the red brick building with
graffiti-covered' walls. Built in
1897, it was a community theater
for the labor movement and a
culture and conference center;
Vladimir Lenin was among its
visitors. In recent years, it has
hosted concerts with performers
like Australian Nick Cave and
Icelandic singer Bjork
As news of the riots spread,
sympathizers around Europe
rallied support for the protest-
ers. The Danes warned like-
minded foreigners Saturday that
the borders were tightening
after two nights of clashes had
turned the normally quiet
streets of Copenhagen into a bat-
tle zone.
"Solidarity among people has
no borders, just like the Spanish
civil war ,or the youth rebellion
in the late 1960s. People recog-
nize themselves in such causes,"
said Rene Karpantschof, a soci-
ology lecturer at the University
of Copenhagen and former
squatter.

SGeorgia bus crash

survivors remember

'the final slam'


Associated Press
ATLANTA-- Tony Moore and
Pis college baseball teammates
vere jolted awake when their
bus slammed against a concrete
barrier and dropped off an over-
)ass. Two students were trapped,
,ne player had already died and
Diesel fuel was leaking, survivors
and family members said.
It would be hours before the
eam, and those left behind at
heir tight-knit Ohio campus,
would know the toll: Four
Pluffton University teammates
ead, plus the driver and his
kwife. Twenty-nine were injured,
Although only eight remained in
'a hospital on Saturday. Seven
.vere in serious or critical condi-
tion, and the eighth was in fair
condition.
Moore said he fell asleep on
the bus floor after a late night of
watching movies, listening to
pusic and chatting about the
eagerly anticipated spring train-
ing.
' The next thing the 21-year-old
Junior remembers is hitting the
rail on an Atlanta interstate over-
,pass early Friday, rolling around
pnd "the final slam in the
ground."
' The bus was traveling to
Florida for the team's annual








I Ib'


spring training trip when the
driver apparently mistook an
exit ramp for a lane and went off
the side of an overpass spanning
Interstate 75. Investigators said
there were no skid marks.
The National Transportation
Safety Board was investigating
and planned to release more
details later Saturday, board
member Kitty Higgins said.
Moore was trapped between
bus seats until his teammates
pulled him out For a long
moment, they stood looking at
each other in the pre-dawn dark-
ness inside the bus that had fall-
en 30 feet
The legs of Mike Ramthun and
Chris Bauman were pinned
beneath the bus. Moore and
other teammates tried to calm
them, telling them help would be
on the way. They got the roof
escape hatch open and stum-
bling out on the freeway.
"We were trying to get every-
body loose off," Moore said.
"Everybody was still in shock"
Timothy Kay, a pitcher, and
others tried to lift the bus and
pull the pinned players out
"They were very worried
about all the diesel fuel on the
ground," Ed Kay said of his son.
Rescue teams later freed the
pair

But the forecast for today
was a high of 66 and sunshine.
Clemente could hardly wait.
"Tomorrow will be a better
day," she predicted.
'On the positive side, the
crowd at the festival seemed
hungry for strawberries. Ferris
Farms sent two truckloads of
strawberries from its office on
US. 41 in Floral City. Clemente
was still debating whether she
wanted a third load, given the
weather
Two miles north of the festi-

store sold strawberries at a
steady pace to travelers who
braved the rain to visit the
store.

who was working at his office
behind the store, said the com-
pany ships out about 200,000 to
300,000 flats of strawberries
annually all over the United
States.
But Herndon said the rainy
weather was not favorable for
the strawberry harvest. Straw-
berries have to be hand picked,
and they can be more easily
bruised in wet weather. But
there was one other considera-
tion, he said.
"You can't stand out there in
this weather or you'll get pneu-
monia," he said.
Ferris Farms is situated on
Duval Island about a mile from
its highway store. The compa-
ny grows about 85 acres of
strawberries on its 423 acres of
land. The farm produces,
among other things, blueber-
ries, oranges, grapefruit and
tangelos.


Each strawberry plant will
generate about 25 to 30 straw-
berries during the course of
the growing season. The har-
vest begins around Nov. 10 and
lasts through Easter. The same
bush will be picked every two
to three days.
Ferris Farms was founded 65
years ago and was originally
called Ferris Groves until a
series of bad freezes in 1983-85
killed the citrus trees.
"That's what put us in the
strawberry business,"
Herndon said.
It was no accident that Ferris
Farms was built on the island
in the Tsala Apopka Chain of
Lakes. Herndon said water in
the lake is warmer than air
temperatures during a freeze.
A gentle westerly breeze across
the lake water can raise the air
temperatures just enough to
protect the citrus.

If you or someone you know is one of over 10 million
women in America who suffer from loss of bladder control,
or urinary incontinence, we may have good news for you.
Until now, many thousands of people have relied on
absorbent or sanitary products to avoid situations where
embarrassing leakage may occur. Unfortunately, though,
these products only help control the symptoms rather than
solve the problem.

Today, we can offer a new outpatient treatment that may
provide an important new solution to certain types of
female urinary incontinence. Talk with us to find out if this
remarkable new treatment is right for you. It could be the
most important call you'll ever make to restore an active,

Dreading socialism, Venezuelans flee to Florida


Associated Press
DORAL - They call it "Plan
' B."
As Venezuelan President
Hugo Chavez further tightens
control of the South American
country's economy, wealthy
Venezuelans who once thought
they could live with his social-
ist edicts are turning to their
backup plan - flight to the
United States, particularly
Florida.
Venezuelans have long gob-
bled up condos and pre-con-
struction deals in Florida as
investments, but the latest buy-
ers want homes where they can
live and business properties
that will help them earn a
green card.
"First the people who come
are the businessmen in the
highest circles, then the losing'
politicians, then the military
and then the professionals,"
said Miami-based immigration


attorney Oscar Levin. "You're
beginning to see the
(Venezuelan) professionals."
This latest and largest poten-
tial group of emigrants say they
fear the effect Chavez's social-
ist policies will have on the
economy and on proposed edu-
cational reforms that could
mirror the ideologically
imbued education of Chavez
ally and mentor, Cuba's Fidel
Castro.
"There is so much insecurity,
political insecurity, economic
insecurity," said Venezuelan
Miguel Medina, a business
executive who moved to the
Miami in August. "You don't
know if a contract you signed
today will be honored by the
government in the
future....This was definitely my
plan B, but it was time to do the
plan B."
Between 2000 - a year after
Chavez took office - and 2005,
the number of Venezuelans liv-


You don't know if a contract you
signed today will be honored by the
government in the future.

Venezuelan businessman who moved to Miami in August.


ing in the U.S. doubled to about
160,000, according to the latest
U.S. Census numbers. Nearly
half live in Florida.
But those numbers are
deceptive.
. In 2005, 10,645 Venezuelans
received their green cards
allowing them to live in the
United States, almost doubling
the 6,222 who received them in
2004, according to the latest
Department of Homeland
Security statistics. And another
400,000 Venezuelans came to
the United States in 2005 on
business and tourism visas. It is


unclear how many stayed.
Colombia, with nearly twice
Venezuela's roughly 27 million
residents, sent the same num-
ber that year.
Anecdotal evidence suggests
even more are seeking to come
here since Chavez's recent
nationalization of Venezuela's
largest telecommunications
company and the electricity
sector. The Venezuelan
Congress also recently gave
him special powers to decree
laws for 18 months, and Chavez
is threatening to expropriate
supermarkets, stores and other


businesses caught hoarding
food or speculating on prices.
Medina said six family mem-
bers visited him in the last two
months seeking ways to relo-
cate to the U.S. Unlike previ-
ous cycles, those seeking to
leave and bring their money to
the U.S. now are coming from
around Venezuela, not just
from Caracas, said Medina, an
account executive for the cred-
it group ExpoCredit.
Meanwhile Ralph Gomez,
who heads the Miami area
Tower Investments group and
has long specialized in real
estate for South American
clients, said he's received more
than two dozen calls since the
year began from people inter-
ested in coming to the U.S.,
Other agents report a similar
spike.


Upper-class Venezuelans
and their money flowed out of
the country after Chavez was
elected in 1998 and again when
he quashed an unsuccessful
coup against his government in
2002, but many professionals
still hoped the climate would
remain friendly to business.
Then came the latest national-
izations. Chavez still pledges to
maintain a business-friendly
climate, and analysts say the
government has paid fair mar-
ket prices to nationalize the
electric and phone companies.
Yet, with 17 percent inflation
pushing the Bolivar to more
than 4,000 per dollar on the
black market, compared to the
official rate of 2,150 Bolivars
per dollar, many Venezuelans
are looking to move their busi-
nesses to the U.S.

Stolen painting


found in


Spielberg's


collection


Los Angeles Times
LOS ANGELES - A Norman
Rockwell painting stolen from
a Missouri gallery 34 years ago
was recovered and authenti-
cated Friday in the collection
of movie mogul Steven
Spielberg.
Spielberg's spokesman,
Marvin Levy, said the direc-
tor's staff contacted the FBI
several weeks ago after seeing
a bulletin from the agency's Art
Crime Team seeking clues
about the theft of the "Russian
Schoolroom" oil painting.
"The second anybody said, 'I
think we have that painting,'
(our) office got a hold of the
FBI," Levy said.
Special Agent Chris Calarco
of the FBI's Art Crime Team
and Jessica Todd Smith, cura-
tor of American art for the
Huntington Library, inspected
the painting Friday afternoon
at Spielberg's offices on the
Universal Studios lot.
The filmmaker was not pres-
ent.
"He's an absolutely unknow-
ing victim in this," Calarco said
of Spielberg.
Calarco declined to specu-
late on the painting's value, but
two sources close to the inves-
tigation said it is worth
between $700,000 and $1 mil-
lion.
The painting, depicting
schoolchildren in a classroom
looking at a bust of Soviet
leader Vladimir Lenin, was
stolen during an exhibit at a
small art gallery in Clayton,
Mo., in June 1973.
According to the FBI, its
whereabouts were unknown
until 1988, when it was sold at
an auction in New Orleans for
about $70,000.


Spielberg bought the paint-
ing from an art dealer in 1989
for an undisclosed sum,
Calarco said.
The director is a high-profile
Rockwell collector who helped
found the Norman Rockwell
Museum in Stockbridge, Mass.
As of last fall, he was listed
as the museum's third vice
president and a member of its
board of trustees.
"He's certainly one of the
collectors of Rockwell," said
Levy, who wasn't sure how
many Rockwell paintings
Spielberg owns or where he
kept "Russian Schoolroom."
"We have a few in our office on
the Universal lot"
The probe into the original
theft lay dormant until 2004,
when art crime investigators
determined that the painting
had been advertised for sale at
a Norman Rockwell exhibit in
New York in 1989.
Agents in the New York and
Los Angeles field offices began
putting out bulletins in art cir-
cles and tracking down known
Rockwell collectors.
"We were basically just
about to figure it out when the
Spielberg people made the
connection," Calarco said.
Linda Pero, curator of the
Norman Rockwell Museum in
Stockbridge, Mass., said: "I
think it's really wonderful."
The FBI made the Spielberg
link public late Friday, after an
earlier notice - published in
Saturday's Calendar section -
.that the painting may have
been found.
For now, the painting will
remain in Spielberg's posses-
sion.
"I just advised them to hold
on to it. It's safe there," Calarco
said.


=== Nation BRIEF-


Obama: Senate will
pass union measure
CHICAGO - Democratic
presidential candidate Barack
Obama said Saturday the
Senate would pass legislation
making it easier for workers to
start unions against companies'
wishes. Getting it past President
Bush is another matter, he said.
"We may have to wait for the
next president to sign it, but we
will pass it," the. Illinois senator
told a cheering crowd of more
than 1,000 people at a labor
rally. "We will get this thing
done."
Despite Obama's optimism,
the Senate's Republican leader,
Kentucky's Mitch McConnell, has


said he will block the measure
and the White House says Bush
will veto it if it gets to him.
The House passed the
Employee Free Choice Act on
Thursday.
Obama headlined a rally that
included national and local labor
leaders, and state politicians.
The event was sponsored by the
American Federation of State,
County and Municipal
Employees Council 31, which
has 100,000 active and retired
members in Illinois.
It was Obama's second major
public appearance in his home-
town in as many days. The
state's junior senator did not take
questions from reporters at
either event.

Queen Ann's Revenger lead conservator, Sarah Watklns-Kenney, center, pours water over a cannon brought up May 17, 2006,
in Atlantic Beach, N.C. Underwater archaeologists raised the cannon Wednesday from what's presumed to be the pirate
Blackbeard's sunken flagship and put it on display, for an hour.


Excavating ship that may have been


Blackboard's could take 3 years


Associated Press


RALEIGH, N.C. -A shipwreck off the
North Carolina coast believed to be that
of notorious pirate Blackbeard could be
fully excavated in three years, officials
working on the project said.
"That's really our target," Steve
Claggett, the state archaeologist, said
Friday while discussing 10 years of
research that has been conducted since
the shipwreck was found just off
Atlantic Beach.
The ship ran aground in 1718, and
some researchers believe it was a
French slave ship Blackbeard captured
in 1717 and renamed Queen Anne's
Revenge.
Several officials said historical data
and coral-covered artifacts recovered
from the site - including 25 cannons,
which experts said was an uncommonly
large number to find on a ship in the
region' in the early 18th century -


remove any doubt the wreckage
belonged to Blackbeard.
Three university professors, includ-
ing two from East Carolina University,
have challenged the findings. But offi-
cials working on the excavation said
Friday that the more they find, the
stronger their case becomes.
"Historians have really looked- at it
thoroughly and don't feel that there's
any possibility anything else is in there
that was not recorded," said Mark
Wilde-Ramsing, director of the Queen
Anne's Revenge Project. "And the arti-
facts continue to support it."
Wilde-Ramsing said a coin weight
recovered last fall bearing a likeness of
Britain's Queen Anne and a King
George cup, both dated before the ship-
wreck, further bolster their position.
So far, about 15 percent of the ship-
wreck has been recovered including
jewelry, dishes and thousands of other
artifacts. The items are being preserved


and studied at a lab at East Carolina
University, and eventually more will
become available for the public to view,
Claggett said.
Nearly 2 million people have viewed
shipwreck artifacts since 1998, includ-
ing at a permanent exhibit at the North
Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort
and at a maritime museum in Paris,
project officials said.
Researchers shared some of their
findings Friday at the North Carolina
Museum of History. They said studying
the artifacts will provide insight into the
era's naval technology, slave trade and
pirate life.
Blackbeard, whose real name was
widely believed to be Edward Teach or
Edward Thatch, settled in Bath and
received a governor's pardon. Some
experts believe he grew bored with land
life and returned to piracy.
He was killed by volunteers from the
Royal Navy in November 1718.

The Hartford Courant . .


HARTFORD, Conn. - Georges
Zidi is the real frugal gourmet.
Zidi is executive chef at the vener-
able and private Hartford Club,
where members dine in style in a
Georgian-revival townhouse.
But Zidi lives in Yorktown, in
Westchester County, N.Y., and
endures a round-trip commute of
180 miles daily to whip up dishes
like roasted duck with raspberry
sauce.
His gasoline bill was running $700
a month until he discovered he
. could raid the restaurant's deep-fat
fryer - arid the fryers in several
restaurants back home, too.
Zidi is among a comparative hand-.
ful of people who have converted a
diesel-engine car or truck to burn
vegetable oil. It can be done, and it
works, and it can save a lot of money.
"Now I spend a maximum of $80 to
$120 a month," he said.
The chef took his Mercedes sedan
to Votech Vegetable Oil Fuel Systems
in Mahopac, N.Y., where co-owner
Wally Little installed a conversion

etable oil.
There's a little bit of a hassle
involved to burn restaurant waste
oils, but not much. Little says the oil
must be dewatered and filtered to
remove any particles larger than 1
micron.
Materials for a home-filtering sys-
tem are available for less than $200,
he said.
Restaurants are happy to give
away the tired oil in their fryers
because otherwise they would have
to pay to get rid of it. Zidi, of course,

oil.
The only other wrinkle is that a
diesel engine does not start well
with vegetable oil in winter. Drivers
like Zidi start the engine with petro-
leum diesel fuel and then flip a
switch to burn vegetable oil once the
engine warms. For that reason,
Little says the system is not for peo-
ple who make a lot of short trips
around town. For people with long
commutes, however, the system can
pay for itself in no time.


Zidi's conversion cost $2,200.
Little said a new proprietary system
he is selling and for which he has a
patent pending runs $3,000 to $5,000.
"The initial outlay - sure, it
hurts," Little said. "but once you
have reached your break-even point,
it becomes, 'Why didn't I do this
years ago?'"
As for Zidi, he's waiting for sum-
mer, when he won't even need the
petroleum diesel. fuel to start the
car. "Then I run free for any miles I
have to drive," he said.

Body parts wrongly
delivered to home
CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich.
- You've got body parts!
Two packages containing
human body parts - including a
liver and part of a head - meant
for a medical research lab instead
were delivered to a home.
A DHL express driver who
believed the bubble-wrapped items
were pieces to a table mistakenly
dropped the body parts, sent from
China, off Thursday at Franck and
LudMne Larmande's home.
"My husband started to unwrap
one and said, 'This is strange, it

Sky-gazers watch first total lunar eclipse in 3 years


Associated Press


LONDON - A dark red shadow
crept across the moon, leaving only
a silver, crescent-shaped sliver as a
total lunar eclipse began late yes-
terday.
Around the world, amateur
stargazers and astronomers
watched the first total lunar
eclipse in three years. Partly visi-
ble on every continent, residents of
Europe, Africa and the Middle
East will have the best view, weath-
er permitting.
About a dozen people gathered
at the Croydon Observatory, in
southeast London, to watch the
start of the phenomenon.
"It's starting to go!" said Alex
Gikas, 8, a Cub Scout who was
studying for his astronomy badge.
"I've never seen anything like it
before. I'm really excited."
The eclipse was clearly visible,


thanks to clear, crisp weather in
southern England.
Lunar eclipses occur when
Earth passes between the sun
and the moon, an uncommon
event because the moon spends
most of its time either above or
below the plane of Earth's orbit.
Sunlight still reaches the moon
during total eclipses, but it is
refracted through Earth's atmos-
phere, bathing the moon in an
eerie reddish light.
Despite cloudy conditions over
much of Europe, a variety of
Webcasts were carrying the event
live, and astronomers urged the
public not to miss out on the spec-
tacle.
"It's not an event that has any
scientific value, but it's some-
thing everybody can enjoy," said
Robert Massey, of Britain's Royal
Astronomical Society.
Earth's shadow began moving


across the moon at 3:18
p.m.Saturday, with the total
eclipse occurring at 5:44 p.m. and
lasting more than an hour..
Residents of east Asia will see
the eclipse cut short by moonset,
while those in the eastern parts of
North and South America will
find the moon already partially or
totally eclipsed by the time it
rises over the horizon in the
evening.

The partially eclipsed moon was
seen Saturday at an English
Premiership soccer match in
Portsmouth, southern England.The
first total lunar eclipse in three
years gave every continent at least
a partial view when the moon
turned a shade of crimson as light
reaching it from the sun was
blotted out by the Earth.

Will daylight-saving time's early arrival produce confusion?


The Washington Post


WASHINGTON - Perhaps the worst
that will happen in millions of offices on
the second Monday in March is that caf-
feine-deprived workers will wonder why
their automatic coffeemakers failed to
perk on schedule. In less-lucky work-
places, however, employees might miss
meetings, overbook conference rooms or
inaccurately record the time or date of
important financial transactions.
For the first time in 20 years, daylight-
saving time will not start on the first
Sunday in April. Instead, it will begin
three weeks earlier, at 2 a.m. on the sec-
ond Sunday in March, the 11th.
Devices from the tiniest BlackBerry
to the largest mainframe computer


must be updated to ensure their inter-
nal clocks "spring forward" by one hour
at the right moment rather than on the
old date, which has been written into
countless programs. Similarly, they
must be reprogrammed to revert to
standard time a week later than usual,
on Nov. 4. Congress decided in 2005 to
expand daylight-saving time by four
weeks, starting this year, in hopes of
conserving energy by pushing more
human activity into sunlit hours.
Throughout the country, technicians
for businesses and governments have
been working with vendors or software
providers to make sure the fixes are
made on time.
Many workplaces reported confi-
dence that the situation is under con-


trol. "We've had a team together for
some time," said Shirley Norton, a
spokeswoman for Bank of America.
"We should be ready." Airlines, which
rely on accurate takeoff and landing
schedules, said
they were pre- SPRING I
pared.
Some organiza- 0 Daylight saving-

have hit bumps.
At T. Rowe Price, about two dozen
information-technology staffers have
been coordinating with more than 160
vendors to make sure the 200 comput-
er applications used in the Baltimore
brokerage firm's offices will operate
seamlessly March 11 and beyond.
The firm's chief technology officer,


James Mazarakis, said that about 75
percent of the vendors told him noth-
ing needed to be done. Some were
mistaken, however.
"We didn't think we were the ones
who would be
"ORWARD reminding them
of what they had
time will begin at to do," Mazarakis
11. said. "It seems to
me that this is
one of those changes that caught peo-
ple flat-footed."
Some vendor-supplied software
fixes needed tweaking, he said,
including those for MeetingPlace, a
program provided by Cisco Systems
that schedules meeting times and
locations.

'Real Africa' means cold showers - or not


MARIANNE BECKTEL
Special to the Chronicle

In the last article, we were
ready to start our journey into
the "real Africa." Our first taste
of it came right at the Procure,
when we learned that there
was no hot water. Ever.
Showers are cold. Of course,
we later realized that a cold
shower was quite welcome
during a typical day, as near
the equator as we were, and it
was a waste of resources to
keep a supply of water hot. It
just struck us as a bit invigorat-
ing right before bed. However,
we did not realize how much
we are spoiled and take things
for granted. The next morning,
there was no water available at
all. This is typical during the
dry season. Fr George sent the
house man, Elvis, to get some,
which he had to
hand pump and
carry up the stairs.
We washed up with
bottled water and
wet wipes.
Breakfast was
wonderful. We had
bread and pre-
serves (they don't
have much butter
there, but the mar- Anne ]
garine tastes good), MEM
fresh pineapple, OF A T1
watermelon, pa- COUNS
paya, and bananas,
which are right off
the trees. Being grown natural-
ly, they have a wonderful flavor
that surpasses anything we've
tasted here. And speaking of
natural, the plain omelets we
were served were amazing.
The chickens are easy keepers,
and scratch for a living, so the
eggs have a wonderful flavor.
We were served coffee and tea
grown in Cameroon, as well as
other drinks.
One blessing in Cameroon is
that nobody starves. In their
volcanic soil, everything grows
easily and there is always
something ripe. People can
grow their own food and trade
what they have extra. And fruit
trees also grow wild. Chickens

about the world. It's drawn on part of the wall painted black, but
the paint is chipping in the humidity of the tropics.


and goats are easy to keep, and
the ocean and rivers have good
fish.
During our visit, Fr. George
was able to combine business
and pleasure. Upon his return
to Cameroon, he was
named Secretary of
Education for the
diocese of Buea. As
we travelled
a' . through the area vil-
" lages, we were able
' to visit the schools
P: and talk with the
students. What a
great way to get to
Tusillo know the country
OIRS The schools will
RAVEL make the difference
MELOR in Cameroon's fu-
ture. The govern-
ment runs public
schools, and the religious
schools are privately run.
Education starts with nursery
school, followed by five years
of primary school. Then comes
secondary school, which is also
five years. If the student wants
to attend University, then
another two years, called "high
school" is required before
gaining admission. If the sec-
ondary and high school classes
are combined as a boarding
school, the school is referred to
as a "college." No level of
school is mandatory, and
schools are not free.
Another thing we learned is
that each school has a standard
uniform. Catholic schools wear


light blue, others wear differ-
ent colors. And hair on both
girls and boys must be close
cropped, in order to stop any
competition of hair styles. It
was a bit disconcerting at first,
but we quickly grew accus-
tomed to it. Actually, a majority
of Cameroonians wear their
hair very short.
Our first visit was to an ele-
mentary school. The school
buildings themselves gave us
pause. We learned that in the
tropics, priorities differ.
Schools simply need a floor,
walls with plenty of windows
for ventilation, but no screens
or glass. A sturdy zinc roof to
keep out the rain that falls
daily for eight months. And in
the tropics, upkeep is difficult,
so the paint is faded and the
finish may be crumbly, and
there may not be shutters on
the windows. That is not impor-
tant to them. What happens
inside the classroom is what
counts. Parents realize the
value of education now that
they see the successful gradu-
ates of several generations in
good positions, and will sacri-
fice to send their children to
school.
This part of Africa has an
oral tradition, which is good
because books are few and far
between. In the classrooms,
there are rarely blackboards,
but some walls may be painted
black. Almost every wall has
chalk writing, from things .to

with us as gifts.


remember to maps of the
world. In one classroom, we
saw this: "You .should know
these people: Otto von
Bismark, Vasco da Gama,
Vespucci Americus, and
Heroditus." And this was in an
elementary school.
We brought a number of
inflatable globes with us as
gifts for the schools. Little did
we know how much they will
be appreciated. However, after
the first several; we left it for
the schools to blow up by them-
selves. Whew!
We enjoyed our first tiptoe
into Africa, and our interaction
with the students and their
teachers. Next time, we hit the
road (or what passes for one) to
the interior and more discover-
ies.

on the wall: Bismark was the

World War I; da Gamma was

Today' Ii . . -


Your Birthday: You may find
'yourself being a bit more selective
:where your objectives and ambi-
tions are concerned. However, by
narrowing your focus in one or two
particular areas, you'll weed out the
time wasters.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) -
It's to your benefit to be a bit more
cooperative than usual when it
comes to your important one-on-
one relationships.
Aries (March 21-April 19) -
Even though- this may be a day of
rest for some, you're not likely to
devote your time to simply fooling
around. You'll feel industrious.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) - It'll
do you a lot of good if you don't take
yourself or anything in which you
get involved too seriously.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) -
This is a good day to put the finish-
ing touches on all those little things
you've left dangling for much to
long.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) -
Attitude is extremely important, so if
you'd like to have a pleasant day,
adopt a positive outlook on all you
do. Negative thoughts will do noth-
ing but thwart your abilities and
prospects.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) - One of
your more promising areas encom-

you follow.your practical and logical
instincts, they'll promote good deci-
sion making of value and growth.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -
Sometimes it is essential to put your
own self-interests at the forefront.
Concentrate on matters or projects
that are important to you personally
instead of spending time on others.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -
Although you generally like to dis-
cuss things with others, you really
don't need anybody to help guide
your thinking. All you require is a pri-
vate, quiet environment to sort
things out.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -
Because you'll treat all you
encounter in a warm and friendly
manner, you do as much for your-
self as you do for others.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -
Don't make the mistake of thinking of
yourself as an underdog when it
comes to competitive match-ups.
You'll have a surprising amount of
strength to draw upon when needed.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -
The magic formula you'll put into
play with whatever it is you take on
is, 'Yes, I can!"
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -A
serious matter, which means a lot to
you personally, will take a turn for
the better. It won't happen by acci-
dent, you'll have brought it about.

Time for tarmac timeshare


Big, big decisions. Sue and I don't get that
much time off, so we spend a lot of time
planning which tarmac we want to spend
our vacation on this year.
I like O'Hare, but Sue prefers Atlanta for
some reason. Maybe we could compromise.
Who doesn't love Newark? It's easy to get to, and
it's got that nifty monorail that you can watch
from your seat in the plane.
"What about Dulles?" I ask.
"Remember that time we spent nine
hours out there that Memorial Day
weekend? It was only 92 F outside,
but inside it must have 108 E It was
like being in the Sahara. Too bad the
pictures didn't come out. The image
of the flight attendants holding down V
that guy who was missing his moth-
er's funeral was pretty dramatic. And
entertaining. Better than anything
you'd see in Cancun. They gave us MUL
two free tickets to the LAX tarmac,
which we should use before the airline goes
belly up, by the way They'll be no good then."
"I know," says Sue, "But sitting on the tarmac
in California scares me. What if there's an
earthquake? It could shake the overflowing toi-
lets into the cabin and spoil everyone's fun."
"What about Paris? Or Barcelona? I hear
great things about their airports."
"There's a problem. I don't think they let their
planes sit on the tarmac for nine or ten hours.
Once you leave this country, you're pretty much
at the mercy of those radical, overseas govern-
ments. I don't even think they allow overbook-
ing."
"The Commies."
"You know the great thing about tarmac vaca-
tions? You don't have to pack any luggage, you
don't have to rent a car, you don't have to reserve
a hotel room. It's all right there for us in one lit-
tle package. About the only expense is bribing
the flight attendants for food and water."
"Yeah, I kept expecting to see Jeff Probst from
"Survivor" come down the aisles and separate
us into tribes. That's part of the fun, when peo-
ple start to go stir crazy."
"If only we could buy some coach airline seats
for our lanai."


"Who would ever bother to fly if you could sit
in those things at home?"
"Of course, not every tarmac vacation is fun.
Remember that time we got the chatty pilot?
'Ladies and gentlemen, there's been a weather
delay in Albany, we should be off the ground in
about 20 minutes.' What's up with that? Who
wants to know all that stuff? I swear, that guy
would not stop talking. I'll bet you he
N made a so-called 'important'
announcement at least once an hour.
"Thank goodness most pilots don't
bother you with all that stuff. Nine,
ten hours without a word about why
we're sitting here. That's the way it
should be."
"What I like is that parents get to
spend some quality time with their
M kids. Especially the babies. If you
can't bond with your children after
.LEN nine hours locked in a 747, well,
you're just not trying."
'"And it's a great way to meet people. Like
what's-her-name who was sitting in the window
seat next to us on the tarmac at Dallas Fort
Worth. It's too bad she missed her connecting
flight to her fantasy vacation in Greece that
she's been saving for and planning for years, but
that's the thing about Club Tarmac. It's always a
surprise."
"Some people just can't deal with spontaneity.
I get enough rules and regulations at work.
When I'm on vacation I like to go with the flow,
let other people make all the decisions for a
change."
"Yes, I don't get all the complaining. What is it
about 'Buy one tarmac vacation and get one
free,' that people don't understand? The air-
lines now want to pay you for every hour you sit
on the tarmac - you can't get a better deal than
that Unless you're one of those people who
actually wants to fly somewhere specific. But if
you really wanted to get somewhere, why would
you use an airline?"

Father's careless actions


while driving could kill child


Dear Annie: I am a 27-year-old mother,
and I have a nephew, by marriage, who
is 24. We'll call him "Brandon." He is a
wonderful person with two small children.
The problem is, Brandon lives 40 minutes
away, and every time he visits, his 3-year-old
child is sitting on his lap in the car - in the dri-
ver's seat. I've never seen either of
the children buckled in. His live-in
girlfriend, who is the mother of these i
children, usually holds the younger
one in her lap.
I don't understand how they can-
not see the harm in this. It only takes
one little accident and the children
would be dead. I've told Brandon
that he must put them in car seats
and buckle them up, but he doesn't
listen. They do have a car seat for the
baby, but it's not strapped into the
vehicle, so what good is that? ANN
How can I protect my great-niece MAIL
and great-nephew? I'm infuriated
and scared to death at the same time.
I know they would never forgive themselves if
their children were hurt when it could have
been prevented. Please help. -Angry Auntie in
Kentucky
Dear Angry Auntie: We are shocked by your
nephew's lack of interest in his children's wel-
fare. He is not only foolish but guilty of child
endangerment. It is not safe for Dad to hold a
child on his lap while driving, even if Dad is
belted in. In even a minor crash, the child would
be crushed between Dad and the steering
wheel. It is not safe for Mom to hold a child on
her lap, either, because at impact, that child
could be crushed or thrown.
According to the National Safety Belt
Coalition, even after the child's body comes to a
complete stop, their internal organs are still
moving forward. This can cause serious or fatal
injuries. If this information doesn't wake up
your nephew, we'd report him to the police the
next time he drives off. Better angry than griev-
ing.
Dear Annie: I just started high school, and my
brother is in kindergarten. I have calmly and
maturely tried to convince my parents to let our
family get a dog, but they just say, "Not yet."
Several years ago, we had to put both of our


cats to sleep, and since then, we have only
owned pond fish. My parents constantly remind
me that pets interfere with traveling, they can
be expensive and that our family is not ready to
be responsible for an animal. I have stated that
I would be able to handle a lot of responsibility
in caring for the dog, but still Mom and Dad
have told me to wait.
H How can I prove to my parents
that our time as a family together is
slipping away, and sooner is better
than later to get a dog? - Lonely
Teen Lacking a Dog
Dear Teen: We suspect %your par-
ents worry that your enthusiasm will
wear off after a few weeks and they
- will be stuck walking the dog in the
early hours of a cold morning. We
think dogs are great, so ask your
grandparents., uncles, aunts and
IHE'S family friends to intercede for you,
BOX but ultipiatel. it's your parents' deci-
sion.
Dear Annie: I read the letter from
"Confused in California," who thinks her hus-
band may be gay. You told her to get checked for
STDs, "just in case he's been playing both sides
of the fence."
If the man or woman were only playing one
side of the fence, would you tell the person to
get checked for STDs? The subtext to your mes-
sage seems to be that only gay men have STDs.
- Jamaica Plain, Mass.
Dear Jamaica Plain: You weren't the only
reader angry with us about this, and the misun-
derstanding is entirely our fault. We wanted the
wife to know her husband was probably gay, but
obviously, you can get STDs no matter which
side of the fence you are on. Here's what we
should have said: Get checked for STDs, in case
your husband is cheating. Period.

Texas' freshman sensation
Kevin Durant, a top candidate
for national player of the year,
hit all but four of his first 14
shots and scored 25 points in the
first half and the Longhorns
seized a 54-42 halftime lead.
But Durant, who leads the Big
12 in scoring, rebounding and
blocked shots, injured his ankle
with about 11 minutes left in the
second half and was not the
same after he returned from the
locker room a few minutes later
Hitting only 3-of-8 from the
field in the second half, Durant
finished with 32 points for Texas
(22-8, 12-4).
* Kansas (27-4, 14-2) trailed 51-
35 late in the first half and the
normally deafening Allen
Fieldhouse crowd fell silent
But then Chalmers, Julian
Wright and Russell Robinson
sparked a 24-7 run, capped by
Wright's putback with 16:01 left
for a 59-58 Kansas lead.
With a minute to play,
Robinson's two free throws put
Kansas on top .88-80. But then
.Durant and AJ. Abrams drained
quick 3-pointers and it was only
88-86.
Wright's free throw stretched
the lead to 89-86, and then the 6-
8 sophomore made the defen-
sive play of the game. Seeming
to come out of nowhere, he
blocked D.J. Augustin's 3-point
attempt with 5 seconds to go and
Kansas raced back down the
court with the ball.
Augustin had 19 points and
Abrams had 18 for the
Longhorns, who fell just short of
a Big 12 title despite starting
four freshmen and a sophomore
all season long.
No. 1 Ohio St. 65,
Michigan 61
ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Greg
'Oden scored 12 of his 16 points in
the second half to help No. 1 Ohio
State beat Michigan 65-61 on
Saturday.
After trailing by six, the Buckeyes
(27-3, 15-1) held the Wolverines (20-
11, 8-8) scoreless for the final 3:54
to win their 14th straight game and
their first as a top-ranked team since
1962.
Michigan had chances to pull off
the upset and boost its chances for
an NCAA tournament bid, but could-
n't make the shots or stops in the
final minutes in the regular-season
finale for both teams.

Texas forward Damion James (5) pressures Kansas center Sasha Kaun (24) during the second half
of a basketball game, Saturday in Lawrence, Kan.


Ohio State's Ron Lewis scored 12
of his 16 points in the first half and
Mike Conley Jr. had nine of his 11 in
the second.
Dion Harris scored 19 points for
Michigan, Brent Petway and
Courtney Sims each had 11, and
Jerret Smith added 10.
Washington 61,
No. 2 UCLA 51
SEATTLE --Jon Brockman and
Spencer Hawes combined for 33
points and 28 rebounds and led
Washington to its biggest win of the
season, a 61-51 upset of No. 2
UCLA on Saturday.
The Huskies (18-12, 8-10 Pac-
10), physically matched the Bruins'
grind-it-out style. UCLA (26-4, 15-3),
already the Pac-10 champions, saw
its five-game win streak end.
Brockman, a 6-foot-7 forward that
relishes rugged play, hit four free
throws in the final 37 seconds as the
Huskies picked up their most
impressive win of the season and
built some needed momentum for
next week's Pac-10 tournament.
Winning the tournament is likely
Washington's only shot at getting
into the NCAA tournament


Josh Shipp led UCLA with 13
points, but the Bruins could not over-
come a season-low 20 first-half
points and having three stretches of
5 minutes or more without scoring.
Arron Afflalo added 12, but guard
Darren Collison missed on 13 of 15
shots and finished with five points,
seven under his season average.
No. 4 Wisconsin 52,
Michigan State 50
MADISON, Wis. - Kammron
Taylor's 3-pointer with 4 seconds
remaining lifted No. 4 Wisconsin to a
52-50 victory over Michigan State on
Saturday.
Michigan State's Drew Neitzel hit
a long jump shot to give the
Spartans a one-point lead, 50-49,
with 1:31 remaining. Taylor then
missed a jump shot with 57 seconds
left, but Michigan State's Travis
Walton missed a jumper on the
other end to give the ball back to the
Badgers, who called timeout with
11.7 seconds left.
Taylor got the ball after an
inbounds pass to Marcus Landry,
and hit the 3-pointer to give the
Badgers a two-point lead. Neitzel
ran the length of the floor and tried


to answer with a desperation 3-
pointer at the final hom, but it fell
short.
The Badgers (27-4,13-3 Big Ten)
were back in action for the first time
since losing at Ohio State last
Sunday. Wisconsin was ranked No.
1 for the first time in school history.a
week ago, but came into Saturday's
game trying to avoid going into the
postseason with three straight loss-
es - and trying to avoid its second
loss to the Spartans (21-10, 8-8) in
less than two weeks.
The Badgers lost at Michigan
State on Feb. 20, one day after gain-
ing the top spot in the Associated
Press poll.
Wisconsin also was playing its
first game without leading rebounder
Brian Butch, who dislocated his right
elbow in the Ohio State game and is
expected to miss at least a month.
Alando Tucker led Wisconsin with
26 points in his final home game..
No. 7 Texas A&M 94,
Missouri 78
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -
Antanas Kavaliauskas scored a
career-high 26 points to lead No. 7
Texas A&M to a 94-78 win over


Missouri on Saturday in the regular-
season finale for both teams.
Texas A&M (25-5, 13-3) clinched
the No. 2 seed in next week's Big 12
tournament with the win.
It was a special day for
Kavaliauskas, whose performance
came in front of his mother Birute
Kavaliauskiene, who traveled from
Lithuania to watch him play college
basketball for the first time.
Kavaliauskas scored nine of the
Aggies first 12 points in the second
half to erase a two-point deficit and
give A&M a 54-46 lead with 13:54
remaining. He capped that spurt
when he was fouled making a nifty
reverse layup and .then sunk the free
throw.
His mother beamed as she
watched the play from her fourth-row
seat. The big man also made A&M's
first seven points of the game.
No. 9 Georgetown 59,
Connecticut 46
WASHINGTON - Roy Hibbert
had 18 points and 12 rebounds, and
No. 9 Georgetown ended a'decade
of frustration against Connecticut
and clinched a least a share of the
Big East regular season champi-
onship Saturday with a 59-46 victory
over the Huskies.
The win assured the Hoyas (23-6,
13-3) at least a first-place tie with
Pittsburgh and possibly the No. 1
seed in next week's conference tour-
nament, pending the outcome of
other games this weekend under the
conference's complex tiebreaking
rules. Georgetown hasn't been the
No. 1 seed since 1989.
The victory was also the first for
Georgetown over UConn since a
52-51 win on Feb. 3, 1997, a streak
that spanned 11 games.
The Huskies couldn't make it 12
because they couldn't contain
Hibbert, and because they couldn't
penetrate Georgetown's defense.
UConn (17-13, 6-10)shot 36 per-
cent and fell apart in the opening
minutes of the second half, missing
seven straight shots in a 15-1 run by
the Hoyas.
Hibbert shot 7-for-13 from the field
and had three blocks and three


steals. Jeff Green, who this week
said his goal was to not only beat
the Huskies but to blow them out,
added 14 points. Patrick Ewing Jr.
scored 12 for the Hoyas, who
bounced back after their 11-game
winning streak was snapped at
Syracuse on Monday night.
No. 11 S. Illinois 53,
Bradley 51
ST. LOUIS - Matt Shaw's tip-in
with 3.2 seconds remaining gave
No. 11 Southern Illinois a 53-51 vic-
tory over Bradley in the semifinals of
the Missouri Valley Conference tour-
nament Saturday.
Jamaal Tatum had 20 points and,
was 4-for-5 from 3-point range for
the Salukis (27-5), who have won 13
straight. Southern Illinois will play the
winner of the Creighton-Missouri
State semifinal Sunday, with a
chance to become the first Valley
regular-season champion since
1998 to also win the conference
tournament.
Southern Illinois has won the reg-
ular-season title in five of the last six
years, and won the conference tour-
nament last March as the No. 2
seed. Shaw, who had 11 points,
gave the Salukis a chance to end
that trend when he tipped in Tatum's
too-strong bid for a layup.
Arkansas 82,
No. 19 Vanderbilt 67
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Gary Ervin
scored 21 points, and Arkansas
upset 19th-ranked Vanderbilt 82-67
Saturday to keep the Razorbacks'
slim NCAA tournament hopes alive.
The Commodores (20-10,10-6),
who came in looking to go undefeat-
ed at home in the Southeastern
Conference for the first time since
1993, had their 13-game home win-
ning streak snapped. The winning
streak had been Vanderbilt's longest
under Kevin Stallings.
Arkansas (18-12, 7-9) now needs
Mississippi State to beat Alabama on
Sunday to clinch the No. 3 seed in
the Western Division. That would let
the Razorbacks play South Carolina
in the second game of the SEC tour-
nament on Thursday.

Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -
Eighty-two teams and about
1,000 howling dogs lined up
Saturday in downtown
Anchorage for the ceremonial
start of the 35th Iditarod Trail
Sled Dog Race - the longest
sled dog race in the world.
Defending champion and
four-time winner Jeff King
looked relaxed, sending his
daughter to the coffee shop
around the corner to get him a
latte as he waited for his turn to
let his dogs loose on the
Iditarod trail.
Given the tough trail condi-
tions this year - hard-packed
snow and bare ground - King
said he expects a bumpy ride.
That's not a problem, he said.
"The Iditarod trail will never
be easy," the 51-year-old King
said.
Too little fresh snow short-
ened the ceremonial start to an
11-mile run ending in
Anchorage. The restart, where
the mushers get serious about
racing, begins Sunday in
Willow, about 50 miles north-
west of Anchorage.
This year's race carries a
$795,000 purse for the top 30
finishers. The winner will get

approximately $69,000 and a
new pickup truck worth about
$41,000. The mushers who fin-
ish out of the money will
receive about $1,000 each to
help with the cost of flying
their dogs home.
King finished the 1,100-mile
race last year in 9 days, 14
hours and 11 minutes. Four-
time winner Martin Buser
holds the 2002 race record of 8
days, 22 hours and 46 minutes.
Almost half of the mushers
this year are rookies.
The field includes three,
four-time winners who hope to


join Rick Swenson as the
race's only five-time winner.
Doug Swingley, 53, the other
four-time winner, placed sec-
ond last year.
Swenson, 55, said he's not
afraid.
"They're not going to get it.
I'm going to get six," said
Swenson, who last won in
1991.
The ceremonial start is a
festive affair where thousands
of people line up to get auto-
graphs and cheer on their
favorite mushers. The elite
racers garner most of the


attention, as crowds gather
around their trucks embla-
zoned with their names on the
side. Some of the top mushers
have teams of dog handlers
who wear coordinated snow-
suits.
Tim O'Leary, a retired insur-
ance salesman from Merrill,
Wis., and his wife, Chuckie,
are spending a week in
Anchorage for the start of the
race. Their friends don't quite
understand their idea of a
good vacation, he said.
"They are all going to
Florida," O'Leary said. "They
think we're nuts because we
go north." -
This year's field includes
two-time champion Robert
Sorlie from Norway. The 48-
year-old firefighter has won
the race two out of three times
he's raced.
"I think I have the best team
in the world. I will try to do it
again," he said.
Lance Mackey, 36, is coming
off three consecutive wins in
the 1,000-mile Yukon Quest
International Sled Dog Race,
but has yet to win the Iditarod.
Mackey is wearing bib No.
13 - the same number his
father, Dick, and his brother,
Rick, wore when they won the
Iditarod in 1978 and 1983,

Celtics cut down



Nets in OT, 96-88


Associated Press

. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.
- Paul Pierce atoned for a
woeful shooting effort with a 3-
pointer late in regulation and
two jumpers in overtime to lift
the Boston Celtics to a 96-88
victory over the New Jersey
Nets on Saturday.
Al Jefferson scored a career-
high 32 points and added 18
rebounds in helping Boston
rally from an 11-point fourth-
quarter deficit and post their
third straight win. The Celtics
recently lost a franchise-
record 18 in a row.
Pierce shot just 8-of-28 from
the floor and finished with 17
points. Delonte West added 15,
including a 3-pointer with 4
seconds left in regulation to
send the game to overtime.

ATLANTA - Stephon Marbury
scored 11 of his 38 points in over-
time and the New York Knicks
made up a late 15-point deficit to
beat Atlanta 104-100 on Saturday
night, the Hawks' fifth straight loss.
Steve Francis added six of his
season-high 26 points in the over-
time. Marbury and Francis scored
all of New York's 17 points in the
extra period and 33 of the Knicks'
last 35 points.
I Marbury hit on a three-point play
to give the Knicks the lead for
good in OT at 93-90 with 3:44 left
and added a 3-pointer 37 seconds
later for a 96-90 lead.
The Hawks, who have lost
seven of eight, got within 103-100
on a basket by Joe Johnson with
31 seconds left. Johnson led the
Hawks with 32 points.

Bucs trade for Plummer, sign Garcia


Associated Press

TAMPA - The Tampa Bay
Buccaneers signed free-agent
quarterback Jeff Garcia and
potentially nabbed even more
competition for incumbent
starter Chris Simms by obtain-
ing the rights to Jake Plummer
from Denver on Saturday
Garcia, a three-time Pro
Bowl selection who nearly
signed with the Bucs as a free
agent in 2004, agreed to a two-
year deal he hopes will give
him a chance to finally get to
the Super Bowl.
A championship is missing
from Plummer's resume, too,
but its unclear if it remains a
personal goal because the 32-
year-old is said to be consider-
ing retirement after losing his
starting job with the Broncos
last season.
Stepping away from the
game couldn't be farther from
the 37-year-old Garcia's mind.
"Throw age out the window
because that's not how I play.
That's not how I focus. That's
not how I mentally prepare.
That's not who I am," Garcia
said during a news conference.

ed about this opportunity,

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed free-agent quarterback Jeff
Garcia on Saturday and obtained the rights to Jake Plummer from
Denver, adding two quarterbacks to compete with Chris Simms
next season.


guys and bring a good mix of
leadership and drive and will
and perseverance - all those
things you need in order to
turn the corner and get back
that winning feeling, that win-
ning tradition."
The Bucs won the Super


Bowl four seasons ago, but
have had losing records and
*missed the playoffs three of the
past four years.
A tight salary-cap situation
has prevented the Bucs from
being real players in free
agency since coach Jon Gruden


took over in 2002. However, the
team began this year's signing
period with about $25 million
in space.
General manager Bruce
Allen acknowledged the Bucs
traded a conditional pick in the
2008 draft for Plummer, even
though they were aware the
quarterback is thinking about
not playing again. ,
Plummer, who has
three years left on his
contract and is due $5.3
million in 2007, led
Denver to the AFC .

two seasons ago but was
benched after 11 games
last season for rookie
Jay Cutler. His .722 win- Jeff C
ning percentage with
the Broncos from 2003-06 is the
fourth-best in the NFL behind
Tom Brady, Peyton Manning
and Ben Roethlisberger.
While Allen said he expects
Plummer to play again, he
would not speculate on
whether it would be with
Tampa Bay. The GM also said
the Bucs did not acquire the
quarterback's rights with the
idea of trading him.
"I think right now, he's just
taking time to think about it,
which is fine," Allen said,


I
I

I<


adding it's not uncommon for
players ponder or even
announce their retirement
before changing their minds.
Garcia, who last year led
Philadelphia to the playoffs
filling in for the injured
Donovan McNabb, agreed to
terms a day after talking with
the Oakland Raiders. The Bucs
pursued him in free
agency three years ago
but were unable to
match a more lucrative
deal Garcia signed with
the Cleveland Browns.
"I'm happy for him,"
- 7 McNabb, who watched
Garcia win five of six
starts to help the
marcia Eagles win the NFC
East, said during the
Syracuse-Villanova basketball
game in Philadelphia. "I think
it will be a good fit. I think he'll
be fine."
As coach of the Oakland
Raiders, Gruden also passed
on opportunity to sign Garcia
when the quarterback was
coming out of the Canadian
Football League in 1999.
Garcia wound up with San
Francisco and made the Pro
Bowl three of five seasons
there.
While playing with the 49ers,


Gruden and Garcia became
friends.
"It's unfortunate we weren't
able to come together three
years ago and maybe have cre-
ated some great bond and great
situations on the field," Garcia
said of his decision to sign with
Cleveland in 2004. "But I think
he's getting a more focused,
more motivated, more excited
player now than he would have
gotten at that point."
Simms, who missed the final
13 games of last season after
having his spleen removed,
signed a two-year contract
extension in December. He led
the Bucs to the playoffs after
replacing the injured Brian
Griese two years ago, but was 0-
3 as a starter in 2006.
Garcia said Gruden, who was
not available on Saturday, has
given him no assurances about
playing time.
"I do want to start. ... But I
don't expect it to come without
competition. I think competi-
tion is healthy," Garcia said,
adding that he can also help
with the 26-year-old Simms'
development
"And if Jake Plummer were
to show up here after I did, I
welcome it. It's not a situation
I'm fearful of."


Dielman returns



to San Diego


Associated.Press

SAN DIEGO - Kris Dielman
seemed all but gone from the
San Diego Chargers once free
agency opened, with big bucks
beckoning elsewhere for the
left guard.
Hours after being wooed by
the Seattle Seahawks, though,
Dielman agreed to return to
the Chargers on Saturday in a
surprise move that took one of
the most sought-after offensive
linemen off the market.
The deal is worth $39 million
over six years, with $17 million
guaranteed in the first two
years, according to a person
with knowledge of the terms.
He spoke on condition of
anonymity because the deal
had yet to be finalized.
Dielman wasn't immediately
available for comment He was
scheduled to attend a late-
afternoon news conference.
Pro Bowl center Nick.
Hardwick said he was
"pumped up, man," after get-
ting a call from Dielman.
"I thought he was gone,"
Hardwick said. "I didn't think
we were going to get him back.
He called me and said, 'Are you
ready to make a run at the
Super Bowl?' He was pretty
excited."
The deal apparently came
together quickly Saturday
morning. General manager A.J.
Smith didn't immediately
return a call seeking comment
Dielman, who made a trip to
Seattle when free agency
began, had said all along that
he would like to return to block
for LaDainian Tomlinson.
Dielman's agent and - the
Chargers had last spoken in
November. Smith had said the
team wanted to see what kind
of offers the 310-pounder
would get from other teams.
"I want to stay here,"
Dielman said Wednesday.
"They gave me my opportunity.


I want to be loyal. But they've
had a year to do it"
Dielman joined the Chargers
in 2003 as an undrafted defen-
sive lineman from Indiana. He
was converted to guard in his
rookie season and became a
starter early in the 2005 sea-
son. He has quickly blossomed
into a top offensive lineman.
Along Eric Steinbach, who
left Cincinnati and signed with
Cleveland, Dielman was con-
sidered one of the two top
guards on the market Leonard
Davis of Arizona is thought to
be the premier tackle.
Dielman's reputation was
enhanced by the MVP perform-
ance of Tomlinson, who set
league records with 31 touch-
dow n and 186 pbints.'He also'i
won his first rushing title with
1,815 yards.
Coach Marty
Schottenheimer, who was fired
Feb. 12 despite the team going
an NFL-best 14-2, described
the Chargers' line last season
as "snarly."
Dielman certainly added to
that image.
"He's the enforcer,"
Hardwick said. "He's our
intimidator. No one really
wants to mess with him too
much. We're glad to have him
back"
Lining up between
Hardwick and rookie tackle
Marcus McNeill, Dielman said
he was proud when Tomlinson
ran behind the left side of the
line.
"Oh yeah. That's football.
You against me. Let's go," he
said.
Dielman has watched as sev-
eral teammates have received
long-term contracts, including
center Nick Hardwick and
right tackle Shane Olivea.
"Those guys are my friends
and I'm happy for them,"
Dielman said this week "I fig-
ured I did everything I needed
to do."


Patriots sign LB Adalius Thomas


New England

picks up TEBrady
Associated Press

BOSTON - Linebacker
Adalius Thomas, one of the
most sought-after free
agents, signed Saturday
with the New England
Patriots, giving the three-
time Super Bowl winners a
player in the mold of the
departed Willie McGinest.
The 29-year-old Pro
Bowler, one of the keys to
the Baltimore's defense
last season, can play sever-
al positions, including out-
side linebacker and defen-
sive end - as McGinest did
until he left last season for
Cleveland.. .. .
Thomas, at,6-foot-2-inth-,
es and 270 pounds, said he
even lined up at corner-
back in a defensive pack-
age designed to handle
Pittsburgh's physical
receivers, matching wide-
outs stride-for-stride.
"I'm a football player. I
don't play a position.
Whatever is needed for me
to do here, I'm going to do,"
he said.
"That's why the Patriots
have been so successful
here because they don't
look at it as position. They
look at it as football."
The Patriots also
announced the signing of
two other veterans: tight
end Kyle Brady from
Jacksonville and back up
running back Sammy
Morris from division-rival
Miami.
"Personally and profes-
sionally, we are very
impressed with Adalius
Thomas," Patriots coach
Bill Belichick said.
"His playmaking, tough-

agents, signed Saturday with the New England Patriots, giving

ness, intelligence, versatili-
ty and character were all
factors in our decision to
pursue him."
Many professional scouts
had considered Thomas
the post talented free
agent on the market, com-
ing off an 11-sack and 106-
tackle season as one of the
anchors on Baltimore's
stout defense that gave up
an NFL-low average of 12.6
points per game.
The signing period for
free agents was fewer than
36 hours old when Thomas
signed his deal.


He said he did not want
to test the market after
receiving a phone call from
New England - a team he
said is primed to compete
for its fourth Super Bowl
win in seven seasons.
"We don't want to come
here and play games," he
said.
"There's no need to go
looking around for the best,
when you start with the
best;
My first offer was here
and there was no need to go
anywhere else."
Thomas cited a motto
that he learned from his


father in Alabama - "Be
humble or get humble" -
when reflecting on his
steady rise from a sixth-
round draft pick out of
Southern Mississippi in
2000 to a special teams Pro
Bowl pick in 2003 to one of
the league's top lineback-
ers.
He has five career defen-
sive touchdowns, 38.5
sacks, six interceptions and
six fumble recoveries.
He said Belichick has a
penchant for molding a sys-
tem around versatile line-
backers, drawing a compar-
ison to Mike Vrabel, anoth-
er linebacker known for
lining up in other positions,
notably as a goal-line tight
end.
"I think I fit their pedi-
gree of linebackers - guys
that can run, big strong
guys that play different
things from Vrabel to
Bruschi to Colvin," he said.
"You have all these guys
that are here that are great
players. Again, I just try to
come in and add to what
they already have because
they have a great lineback-
ing corps here."
The signing of veterans at
tight end and running back
fill offensive needs for the
Patriots after the team
released running back
Corey Dillon on Friday.
Tight end Daniel Graham is
an unrestricted free agent
expected to leave New
England.
Brady, 35, played four
seasons with the New York
Jets and eight with
Jacksonville. He has played
in 183 games and caught
334 passes for 3,449 yards
and 23 touchdowns.
Morris, 29, is a seven-
year veteran who has
played for both Buffalo and
Miami.

Associate Press

DUNEDIN - Coming off a shoul-
der injury last year, Scott Kazmir
struggled in his first start of spring
training.
Tampa Bay's All-Star pitcher got
only four outs Saturday and gave up a
two-run homer to Troy Glaus, but the
Devil Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays
5-4 in a game shortened to six innings
because of rain.
Kazmir, who had his 2006 season
cut short by left shoulder inflamma-
tion, allowed three runs and two hits
in 11-3 innings. He walked two, struck
out one and threw 22 of his 41 pitches
for strikes.
"I felt like I was hitting my spots,"
Kazmir said, "but it sure didn't show
it"
Johnny Gomes homered twice and
drove in three runs for Tampa Bay.
Both of his homers were opposite-


Tomo Ohka.
Burnett went two innings, allowing
one hit and striking out two. He threw
25 pitches, 16 for strikes.
"I was up and down, in and out with
a handful of changeups," Burnett
said. "I'll bring the curveball in next
time."
Ohka gave up four runs and five hits
in two innings of relief.
"That first inning he was missing
out over the plate a little bit on a cou-
ple of pitches and they were able to
get good wood on them," Toronto
catcher Gregg Zaun said. "He settled
down the next inning and started to
hit his spots."
Glaus finished 2-for-2 with a double
and two RBIs.
Brendan Harris had a two-run dou-
ble for the Devil Rays.

JUPITER - Kip Wells'debut for St.
Louis was exactly what the Cardinals were
looking for.

team's No. 2 starter behind Chris


Florida Marlins on Saturday.
"Next time, I'll try to get some quick outs
early in the count," said Wells, who threw
33 pitches, 18 for strikes. "Hopefully, have
one or two of my innings in less than 10
pitches."
Cardinals manager Tony La Russa
thinks Wells has a chance to make a lot of
quality starts.
"I see him as a guy who can get deep
into the last third of the game," La Russa
said.
Wells was signed as a free agent to
help lessen the losses of Jeff Suppan, Jeff
Weaver and Jason Marquis. Wells split the
2006 season between Pittsburgh and
Texas, making just nine starts. He broke
his left foot after being traded to the
Rangers and missed the last seven weeks
of the season.
"At this stage of my career, you recog-
nize the value of having quick innings and
what it does for your arm strength and
your ability to pitch deep into the games,"
Wells said. "I'm realizing what my inade-
quacies are."

how this would be the case,
saying that Williams' fans and

the ballpark and that having

league baseball park will reap
many benefits. For example,
the museum will now be acces-

this dream has not just become
a reality, it's grown into some-
thing that even he may not
have dreamed. On Thursday,
March 13, the museum will
open a new 7,000-square-foot
upstairs wing that will high-'
light Williams' life by decade. It
will also be a home for the
Hitters Hall of Fame, which
was an integral part of
Williams' dream.
As you walk in the main
entrance, you can't help but
notice the bronze statue of
Williams standing in the on-
deck circle. There are several
self-explanatory dedication
cases on the first floor, but
when you walk up the stairway
and enter the new wing you are
greeted by rows of memorable
cases that will without ques-
tion keep the most avid of base-
ball enthusiasts entertained
for hours while still piquing the


greatness of Williams might
never have come to fruition.
While fighting in World War
II, Williams' plane was hit by
enemy fire. As the plane
smoked, Williams apparently
became disoriented and con-
tinued to fly deeper into North
Korea - enemy territory. An
alert and brave Hawkins
chased down Williams plane,
pulled up alongside his plane
and signaled for Williams to
follow him. Williams did, sav-
ing himself from what other-
wise would have been a most
certain death.
Every year at the Hitters
Hall of Fame induction cere-
mony, someone also receives
the Military Achievement
award. The recipient of that
award a few years ago was
Citrus County's own Aaron
Weaver, who died during active
duty in the Army.
As you walk the hallways
upstairs, you quickly realize
that this museum has grown
into much more than just a Ted
Williams museum. You'll soon
notice that there's a plush 50-
seat auditorium that continu-
ously shows baseball movies


The corridor is lined with pictures that still need to be placed in showcases in the museum's new wing.

recently recovered ball was
stolen 27 years ago and will be
on display for the first time
ever, thanks to Ted's daughter


Claudia, who has decided to
put the ball on permanent dis-

said George Katis, a member of

"Gerry is still very active in the

the cooperation and help

in Ted's own words, quoted on

"Through the Ted Williams

single most difficult thing in all
of sports; hitting a baseball. We
hope the Museum will become
a place millions of baseball
fans will visit and enjoy for
generations to come. I hope
you'll join us as we transform
our dreams into reality."

doubt be proud of the fact that

"This is the only Japanese
display in any museum that
resides inside of a major

McCarthy as he pointed to a

Key to understanding


Education brings positive changes in society's attitude toward mental retardation


H historically,
societal
attitudes
toward people
with disabilities
have presented
significant prob-
lems. People have
a natural tenden-
cy to be uneasy
around those they
think of as "differ-
ent" from them-
selves, and such
uneasiness often


leads to misconceptions or
even fear.
While these attitudes are
changing, and education
about disabilities is becom-
ing more available, the
problem still makes it diffi-
cult for people who have
mental retardation or other
developmental disabilities.
The Key Training Center, a
nonprofit organization pro-
viding services to develop-
mentally disabled adults,
joins in the efforts to bring
awareness and understand-
ing during March -
National Mental Retar-
dation and Developmental
Disabilities Awareness
Month.
People with developmen-
tal disabilities are often
painted with a broad brush.
Typical perceptions often
include unwarranted
beliefs that people with
developmental disabilities
are sick, stupid or that they
pose a danger to one's self
or others. Psychological, his-
torical and cultural influ-


ences can con-
tribute to these
misconceptions.
with fear of the
unknown as a
common factor.
When people are
unfamiliar with
the social and
medical aspects
of a disability
they may feel
frightened or
threatened by a
person or situa-
they don't under-


including mentally chal-
lenged, physically chal-
lenged or a cognitive, intel-
lectual and developmental
disability.
What is mental retarda-
tion?
Mental retardation is not
a disease. It cannot be cured
and should not be confused
with mental illness. An indi-
vidual is considered to have
mental retardation based on
the following three criteria:
intellectual functioning
level (IQ) of 70 or below:
with the condition being
present from childhood (18
years of age or less): and sig-
nificant limitations in twoor
more adaptive skills, such
as communication, self-
care. home living, social
skills, academics, leisure
and work activities. The
degree of impairment from
mental retardation has a
wide range, from profound-
ly impaired to mild or bor-
derline retardation.
How prevalent is mental
retardation?
About 3 percent of the
United States population -
or more than 7.5 million
people have mental retarda-
tion. This condition is 10
times more prevalent than
cerebral palsy, 25 times
more prevalent than blind-
ness and 35 times more
prevalent than muscular
dystrophy. One out of 10
American families is direct-
ly affected by mental retar-
dation. It cuts across the

Education is the key to

Small steps

In the newspaper business,
it's easy to get focused on
the negative stuff that goes

and it's sometimes easy to
overlook some of the positive
happenings. Let's spend a lit-
tle time this morning review-
ing the positive.
* The Crystal River City
Council is looking around for
some grant dollars in an effort
to purchase the property
around Three Sisters Springs.
That would certainly be a step
in the right direction. That
property should be preserved.
* Citrus County is consider-
ing following the city of Crystal
River's lead in passing an ordi-
nance banning fast-release fer-
tilizer from being sold. The
fast-release fertilizer that peo-
ple use on their lawns is a pol-

and underground water. For
years, the politicians have
talked about doing something
to slow our pollution levels
and now they are actually get-

Reduction



needed in the

A t least some folks in coun-
ty government appear to
be getting the message
that spending needs to be
slowed down.
County Commissioner Gary

in last Sunday's

cal year. chronicleon
While Bartell's comment at
comments are wel- Chronicle
come, it still
appears that other elected offi-
cials don't get the message.
There is continued complaining
by some in government that they
should not have responded to
the taxpayer revolt of 2006 that
forced the county commission to
lower the millage from 8.145 to
7.1450.
It's been suggested by some
that only greedy Realtors were
behind the protests. And that
demonstrates that some elected
officials are still missing the
point.
Even with the reduction of the
tax rate, Citrus County govern-
ment increased its spending by
17.5 percent from the 2005-06 fis-
cal year to 2006-07 year. County
government spending of local ad
valorem tax dollars went from
$70.5 million to $82.9 million.
Total county spending increased
from $185 million to $224 mil-

whole paper's Sports section was
about NASCAR racing.
Ill-mannered diners
This is in reference to loud, noisy,
rude diners. My husband and I were
dining at (a restaurant) in the back
room on Feb. 13 when a large group
-of people came in and were seated.
These people were rude beyond
belief. Loud and noisy does not
begin to describe the racket they
were making. We were the table
behind them and I had my hands
over my ears through most of the
meal - that should have been a clue,
but not so. The table behind my
husband finally asked that their
food be packed up to take home
and eat in peace and quiet. The
table behind me, they kept rolling
their eyes and giving these people
dirty looks to no avail. One woman
from one end of their table came
down to talk to two men at the
other end of the table. She kept

Because the total valuation of
county property increased by 33
percent, the county commission
got a huge increase in new tax
dollars while dropping the tax
rate. The county still increased
tax spending by 17.5
percent in a single

The county's popu-

much and the cost-of-living

Combined with the high cost of
insurance and rising gasoline
prices, the cost of living has got-

We're pleased that Bartell has
heard the complaints and now
wants to do something about it.
We urge the other commission-
ers to get on board.
Government spending increas-
es should reflect the rate of
growth in a community com-
bined with the rate of inflation.
In Citrus County's case, that
would be good for about a 4 per-
cent increase in spending.
Instead, county taxpayers got a
17.5 percent hike.
That's not holding the line on
taxes.
We have stronger expectations
for the 2007-08 budget year.

Good service
0579 I'd like to say that I
believe.the Crystal River
City Council is doing a
good job. I think that they consider
the best interests of the citizens of
Crystal River and the environment
and the infrastructure and how
things will be funded in their deci-
sion making. They do.a conscien-
tious job for very low pay. To me it
doesn't matter that there is debate
and disagreement on the council. At
times, . think that's why five people
are elected instead of one, so that
different opinions can be heard. We
only have to look as far as Inglis
and Brooksville to see examples of
truly dysfunctional local govern-
ment. I'd like to thank them for
their service.
Post takes cards
This is today's Sunday Chronicle.
It's headed "Old Christmas cards,"
and the person wants to know if
there. is an organization that uses
Christmas cards or other birthday
cards or any greetings or greeting
cards. Yes, I just delivered my greet-
ing cards to the VFW Post in
Hernando, which is on State Road

An excellent lack of interest


A bout 260 million
Americans decided
that they had better
things to do than to watch
the recent Academy
Awards show. That's a good
sign. It doesn't matter if
what they had better to do
actually wasn't any better
than watching the Oscars
show. It's the lack of inter-
est that counts. Charle
The Academy Awards is . OT
actually a trade show, and it VOi
used to be held in a night-
club. Newspapers used to
ignore it or bury it on an inside page.
After all, it makes no difference what-
soever in our lives who gets a trade-
show award. It makes no difference
what they wear Come to think of it, it
makes no difference what they say.
Another good sign is a poll conduct-
ed by CNN that asked the question
'Are you interested in the Anna Nicole
Smith story?" Much to the embarrass-
ment of Larry King, who had planned
yet another entire hour devoted to her
death, 80 percent of the poll respon-
dents said, "No."
. "I don't believe it," King huffed and
went right on with his show.
Television, which is in large part
owned by entertainment conglomer-
ates, has long blamed its own fascina-
tion with celebrity trivia on the public.
It's the old "We are only giving the stu-
pid public what they demand." The
truth is that the public has no say in
the matter and, I suspect, a great deal

better taste.
Could it be that this hys-
j. terical fascination with
celebrities is finally begin-
ning to fade? Well, not if the
., entertainment conglomer-
-' - ates can help it, but I sus-
pect more and more
Americans are losing inter-
est in the self-destructive
and vulgar behavior of tal-
Reese entless airheads - if peo-
IER ple ever had any interest in
CES it in the first place.
America naturally has
always had silly people with
vulgar interests. When Stonewall
Jackson's chaplain, R.L. Dabney,
observed that the only likely outcome
of universal education was to create a
mass market for trash literature, he
wasn't far off the mark
It's interesting to note that the
Federalist Papers, a collection of arti-
cles arguing in favor of ratification of
the U.S. Constitution, were written for
local newspapers at the time. In other
words, the authors saw no difficulty in
the then-literate public understanding
them: Some schools today defend the
practice of not requiring high-school
students to read them on the grounds
that they are "too difficult"
Having once helped my wife grade
the essays of a group of college fresh-
men, I don't doubt that they are too dif-
ficult for the modem mind. These col-
lege freshmen had somehow survived
Head Start, kindergarten and 12 years
of public education without learning


how to spell, punctuate or write an
intelligible sentence. Thank God I
never had to meet any of them, but I
suspect their conversation was equally
illiterate.
Many Americans seem to have lost
sight of the purpose of education. It is
not to get a diploma or a piece of
sheepskin. The purpose is to educate
citizens so that they can contribute to
running our complex society. I don't
know if teachers still say this, but my
first-grade teacher often reminded us
that while she taught, we had to learn.
And learning is hard work Since kids
have the same 24-hour day as adults,
the hours devoted to learning have to
be subtracted from hours spent on
other activities - and vice versa.
If I had my way, I'd segregate stu-
dents by sex, make them all wear uni-
forms and shave the heads of the boys.
Sex and competition in appearance
are distractions. I'd put them in a
monastic, drab setting so that the only
forms of entertainment were their
textbooks and their lectures.
Obviously, I wouldn't last a day in
public education, so we might as well
realize that one day we will wake up
and find that our high-tech society is
being run by Chinese, Muslims, Arabs
and others who still value education.
We will still have our Anna Nicole
Smith and Britney Spears types.

LETTERS to the Editor


BOCC duty
In regard to Debbie Ressler's letter
of Feb. 27, I agree with her issues. I -
also believe the voters of Citrus
County cannot afford to let Sheriff
Jeff Dawsy cover up a crime. I firmly
believe also that our five county com-
missioners should agree to investigate
all allegations pertaining to Dawsy,
whether they be past or present
I was under the impression that
one of the duties of our commission-
ers was to not only manage the finan-
cial affairs of the county and its sher-
iff's office, but also to regulate the
sheriff's office. The assistant county
attorney, Michele Lieberman, may
want to check this out with "Black's
Law."
If I am wrong, then I stand correct-
ed. But if I am right, then I request
that commissioners call for an investi-
gation of Dawsy's cover-up.

To some degree, I have followed the

votes that were not accounted for, is it
possible that these voters did this of
their own free will? I'm sure that this
has cost the taxpayers for the recount
and the court time, but the fact that
she raised some monies to help fund
her cause, we can sleep better.
When is she going to accept the fact
that she lost? One thing we can say
about some Democrats is how they
love to whine when they don't get
their way. May we suggest that if she
chooses to run for Congress at a later
date, possibly by then we will be back
to having paper ballots, avoiding con-
flicts in getting a better count So in
the future, when a person is declared
the winner, he or she can go home

Busting hurricanes
In reading Gerry Mulligan's column
last Sunday, I got to thinking that
Gerry may believe he is joking when
he says: "Those hurricanes better
watch out They might soon find
themselves officially banned from the
Sunshine State." Yet, he may not
know how close he is to the truth.
I can remember being stationed at
Miami Beach in 1943, and watching
our Navy shoot cannon balls over the
water at tornado-like waterspouts and
busting them up.
Gov. Crist might just position can-
nons along Florida's shoreline, and
shoot into threatening hurricanes to
bust them up. It could happen.

Sound OFF


Flea market thief
To whoever stole the back
light lens cover off my '86
Mustang at Howard's Flea
Market: You're the kind of peo-
ple who's making the world
how it is today. When you can't
even stroll around a flea mar-
ket without someone vandaliz-.
ing your car, it's terrible.
Sharing wealth
You know what's wrong in
this world today? The rich are
too rich and the poor are too
poor. Take, for instance, in the
newspaper today; they show a
Rooms To Go ad with Cindy
Crawford always advertising.
I'm sure she gets big bucks for
that and she's already got big
bucks from her modeling
career - like she needs extra
money. Some of these football
players that are doing some of
the TV (ads) ... A guy had mil-
lions from a football career. Let
some poor people advertise
and appear there. But I guess
you won't buy them if you're
poor and you're unknown.
There is an unequal share of
wealth in the United States
today. No wonder why every-
one's angry today.
Caretaker thief
You've got to watch what the
state does. The state assigned
a caretaker to take care of my
wife's aunt. When the aunt
passed away, the aunt had left
my wife all her jewelry, which
consisted of a couple of nice
diamond rings and a nice
watch and other things. And
the caretaker stole it all and is
no longer there and I don't
think we'll ever get it back. And
by the time we do get it back,
she'll have time enoughWto'have'1
the good diamonds taken out
and have junk put in it. So, you
know, if you ever have to have
caretakers, you're better off
giving your stuff away to your
family ahead of time ... It was
a state-assigned caretaker, too.
And she was supposed to.bring
the rings back today and she
didn't and she said, "Oh, it's
got to go through the attorney,"
which is a bunch of bunk
because she stole it all. If I
knew her full name, I would file
charges and have her arrested
for it.
Watering road
I'm calling about Citrus Hills
and Meadowcrest watering that


ground along (County Road)
486. Last night, Saturday
night, I drove down the road
and water was pouring down in
the road. They were watering
on the weekend. I thought we
had a water shortage, but they
don't seem to think about that
in Citrus Hills and
Meadowcrest.
Ending war
I've been listening to all
these politicians and political
pundits and they're all saying
exactly the same thing, verba-
tim. Nobody has a plan. It's
like you stick a key in their
back, wind them up and push
a button, and each one makes
the same speech in 20 words.
What the American people
have got to realize sooner or
later is, you can't have a war
and not kill people. If you real-
ly want to stop this war, what
you do is saturation bomb the
place for a week and then send
the artillery in at the south end
of Iraq and then you just send
the infantry through there and
anybody who gives you a bad
time, shoot them with a can-
non or a rifle, and by the end
of the middle of March you
won't have anymore trouble
over there.
Riding manatees
It's a shame to see what peo-
ple are doing to the manatees,
in terms of the videos that
were taken where people are
riding with them, waking and
harassing them. I volunteer at
the Wildlife Refuge Center in
Homosassa and I've been
exposed and around the mana-
tees. They are a beautiful crea-
ture. They bother nobody.
.They're just harmless and
they're just so much fun to
watch. They're a gift of nature.
Why do we have to allow these
-idiots that have no brains - the
manatee have more brains
than some of these people - go
out and abuse them? I think
these people need to be arrest-
ed and heavily fined. When this
state starts providing and
imposing heavy fines and jail
sentences for a lot of the vari-
ous crimes that goes on,
crimes will disappear or
lessen. As long as we treat
them so nice and we treat
potential prisoners as though
they're special guests, crimes
will never decrease, they'll only
increase.


Fred. I said, 'Why don't one of
you come up and sit beside
me?' And this is what the little
girls said,
"All together now, 1, 2,3, keep
your mind on your driving,
keep your hands on the wheel
and keep your snoopy eyes on
the road ahead, we're having
fun, sitting in the backseat,
hugging and kissing with
Fred."
At the time, in my pre-pubes-
cent state, I was still a little bit
concerned that girls might
have cooties. Even so, there


was something I liked about
the concept of being the one in
the backseat with the girls.
Adolescence arrived, slip-
ping up on me with the subtle-
ty of a freight train.
I found out kissing girls was
.more fun than fishing and I
began to fully understand what
it was I would have liked about
being the Fred in the backseat.
It never happened.
Nope, I never found myself
with a harem.
But, who needs a harem?
After I became an adult, I


was blessed with one girl, the
right girl, the one who after
more than 40 years is still the
love of my life. We married and
had two girls and a boy of our
own. The years have passed
and more girls and boys have
come along.
Let me see. How many girls
are there?
I have my sweetheart, Cheryl
a/k/a Sherry; daughters Beth
and Becky; and granddaugh-
ters Ariana, Emily, Kaylee,
Ashley and Joy-Joy. That's 1, 2,
3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and, oops, 8!


My, oh my!
I've bested ol' Fred who was
made famous in song. I have
seven little girls, along with
three boys; and (with a tip of
the hat to Frankie Valee and
the Four Seasons) I also have
my very own "Sherry, Sherry
Baby"!

About 87 percent will be

countries, this problem is com-
pounded by the lack of assimi-

in 75 percent of cases, the

What vocational opportuni-

People with mental retarda-
tion want to learn and be use-
ful. Vocational programs offer
an array of services to prepare
individuals for work Job-train-
ing workshops help individuals
function in a vocational setting
as independently as possible,
while receiving wages based
on their ability, productivity,
and the prevailing wage for
similar jobs.

British students expressed
interest and speculation about
who will be the 2008 presiden-
tial candidates. Most seemed to
feel that Sen. Hillary Clinton
(D-N.Y) would be the choice on
the Democrat side, while Sen.
John McCain (R-Ariz.) would
be the favorite on the
Republican side. This reflects
reports in the media.
Downey, who is a close friend
of most of the Democrat candi-
dates, especially former vice
president Al Gore and Sen.
Clinton, feels that the first four
primaries and caucuses on the
Democrat side might make it


until they become established
in the job. People with mental
retardation are very often
highly motivated, hard-work-
ing employees. Employers rate
them highly for reliability, loy-
alty, accuracy, punctuality and
job satisfaction. Many individu-
als work at grocery stores,
retail stores, assisted living
facilities and restaurants.
What residential opportuni-
ties are available for the men-
tally challenged?
As large public and private
institutions are scaled down or
closed, people with mental
retardation are moving into the
community living in varying
degrees of independence and
receiving support as needed.
People with mental retarda-
tion live with their families or
in small group homes and
supervised apartments in the
community where they are
learning to live more inde-


difficult for Clinton to win the
nomination.
Former Sen. John Edwards
(D-N.C.) has been working in
Iowa for several years, and has
a strong organization. Nevada
is a caucus state and has heavy
labor influence that could
favor Edwards. Clinton should
do well in New Hampshire, but
Edwards was born in South
Carolina and has a lot of ties
there. If Clinton loses any of
those first four, she will be in
big trouble.
The possible change by many
large states to early primary
dates could make these four
elections less important. There
are 40 percent of the voters in


pendently. Some live on their
own with little or no assistance.
.Can the mentally challenged
lead a fulfilling, independent
life?
People with mental retarda-
tion can .live meaningful, ful-
filling lives, as long as they are
in the right environment and
get the support they need. They
enjoy doing the same things as
everyone else, like watching
movies, going out for dinner
and spending time with
friends. They feel, think, hope,
live and work like everyone
else. They share loving rela-
tionships with friends and fam-
ily, and make significant contri-
butions to our society.
How can we as a community
be more inclusive of people
with mental retardation?
People with mental retarda-
tion are people first They have
the same needs and desires as
everyone else. Treat them as


the country who say they will
vote against Clinton under any
circumstances, a heavy burden
to carry. Downey would not be
surprised to see Edwards win
the nomination as the "com-
promise" candidate.
Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) is
the wild card. Very few sena--
tors make it from the Senate to
the White House. He is articu-
late, intelligent and, as he has-
n't been in the Senate long,
doesn't have a record that can
be attacked. This could be an
asset At the moment he is like
a rock star gathering large and

he goes. He could end up as the

Once people reach out
beyond their comfort zones,
they will experience the depth
of humanity and kindness
shown by people with mental
retardation. They are wells of

The same is not true for
Clinton or Edwards, who have
more pressure to win now or be

Don't count Al Gore out His
popularity is on the rebound.

ment and global warming have

are in terri-
ble shape on
Iraq. President - - -
Bush has totally -"
failed to convince
Americans that his
latest plan - adding |
more than 21,000
troops - will work.
In the latest ABC Cokie an
poll, two-thirds still V. R(
disapprove of his TI
war policy, and ..
more than half are '
strongly opposed.
But the Democrats could
screw this up. They could allow
their far left, virulently antiwar
faction to dictate the party's
Iraq policy
Just because most
Americans despise this war
does not mean, they are ready
to cut off funds or restrict the
president's options as com-
mander in chief. If the
Democrats go too far, they
immediately change the sub-
ject from one that favors them
- Bush's gross mishandling of


id Steven
oberts


the conflict - to far
less favorable ter-
rain - their own
role in dictating war
policy
There's an old
saying in
Washington: If
you're in on the
landing, you have to
be in on the takeoff.
This is George
Bush's war and his
policy is headed for
a crash. Why should
Democrats be


wrestling for control of the
pilot's chair?
But Democrats should not
remain silent. They were elect-
ed with a mandate to express
opposition to the war, and it's
despicable for Vice President
Cheney to be arguing that anti-
war critics "validate the strate-
gy of Al Qaeda."
The Democrats' non-binding
resolution, stating strong and
simple opposition to the
President's surge policy, com-
manded clear majorities in


both houses. It was an effective
way of crystallizing antiwar
sentiment and even Secretary
of State Condoleezza Rice
found it useful.
During her recent trip to
Baghdad, she used the resolu-
tion to apply pressure on the
Iraqi government to make
essential political reforms. "I
have made clear," she told
reporters, "that some of the
debate in Washington is, in fact,
indicative of the concerns that
the American people have
about the prospects for success
... if the Iraqi leadership does
not do what it needs to do."
But when Democrats go
beyond that resolution, and
contemplate writing restric-
tions into law, they must tread
very carefully. Bush has made
such a mess of Iraq that there is
no good way out As the Baker-
Hamilton commission learned,
any alternative policy can easi-
ly be ripped apart
Some Democrats feel they
have an obligation to support
measures that bring the troops


home, or restrict them to non-
combat roles, and given the
tragedy of this war, their moral
case is compelling. But politi-
cally, such a move could back-
fire, and hand the president an
excuse to blame others for his
failures.
Besides, such measures
would be purely symbolic. The
non-binding resolution got only
56 votes in the Senate, four
short of the number needed to
break a filibuster. For now,
that's probably the war oppo-
nents' high-water mark. If
Democrats really could end
American casualties, the politi-
cal risk of thwarting the presi-
dent might be worth it But they
can't. They would pay a large
price for little tangible benefit
on the ground.
Senate Democrats seem to
understand this. Sen. Carl
Levin, D-Mich., chairman of
the Armed Services
Committee, says that any
attempt to cut off funds would
never pass and only "strength-
en the president's hand." He


and others are moving to
rescind the initial authoriza-
tion for the war, but they're not
trying to "micro-manage" the
war effort. Their bill won't
become law, but at least it's a
sensible statement of policy.
The House is another matter.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.,
has made bipartisan gestures
on domestic issues, but when it
comes to Iraq, she seems
entranced by Rep. John
Murtha, D-Pa., a "folk hero" to
the antiwar left, as Tom Mattzie
of MoveOn.org put it Murtha, a
Marine veteran, advocates a
complex and ill-advised plan
that would effectively handcuff
Pentagon decision-makers.
Before she panders to the
party's left-wing, Pelosi should
listen to moderate Democrats
like Rep. Jim Matheson of
Utah, who told the Washington
Post "I'd be very concerned
about doing anything that
would hamstring resources
and commanders on the
ground."
In the last election only one


in five voters called themselves
liberals. They were not the
ones who elected a Democratic
majority. It was the moderates
and independents who did
that, and they're the voters who
will decide the next election as
well.
As Phil Bredeson, the
Democratic governor of
Tennessee told The New York
Times: "Democrats could cer-,
tainly not win in Tennessee
with a hard-nosed Nancy
Pelosi-style Democratic agen-,
da."
If the Democrats want to win
next year they have to oppose
the president's war, but not
take responsibility for it The
last time the party got- -
entranced by an antiwar "folk,
hero" his name was George.
McGovern. He lost 49 states.

Homework time
The news media, and per-
haps most American adults,


have a tendency to blame our
education system and teachers
for the deterioration in learn-
ing skills. As parents, have we
really been willing to admit
that we are not free from a
share in the blame?
How much time are
American students spending
on their studies after the end
of a formal school day?
In a recent newscast, it was
reported that according to a
survey of teenagers that teens
spend about eight hours per
day using electronic devices.
That got me to thinking about
the type of impact that this
may have on their education.
Some electronic devices
may be a good tool in the edu-
cation process if its use is
properly managed.
There are some reports that
a survey of teens indicates
they spend 72 hours per Week


on the electronic media such'
as cell phones, ipods, comput-
ers, watching TV and video
games.
"The Pew Charitable Trusts
serves the public interest by
providing information, advanc-
ing policy solutions and sup-
porting civic life." They
reported in 2005, "The number
of teenagers using the Internet
has grown 24 percent in the
past four years and 87 percent
of those between the ages of 12
and 17 are online. About 21
million teens use the Internet
and half of them say they go
online every day - 81 percent
of wired teens play games
online."
Whether teens spend 72
hours per week, or 8 hours per
day, it should raise some seri-
ous questions about the
amount of value time spent to
achieve things academically.
How much time do teens


spend after school on home-
work to advance their learn-
ing-skills, if they spend so
much of their time using elec-
tronic devices? Some non-pro-
ductive academic habits fol-
low some students when they
attend college.
Parents buy, or allow their
teens to buy, these types of
devices. As parents, if we do
not control the use of such
devices, or supervise the study
habits of our children, then we
must share in the blame for
the failure of our children
advancing their learning skills.

Historic answer
Here's a comment to Mr.
Harold C. Eichman and his
letter published Feb. 23 con-
cerning the conflict between


"justice," and "lawyers" inter-
fering with the remedy of "jus-
tice."
Our Forefathers answered
that problem on March 12,
1819, when the
Commonwealth of Virginia rat-
ified the 13th Amendment to
the Constitution of the United
States. Virginia was the last
required state necessary to
ratify the 13th Amendment,
which became part of the
Constitution as of that date.

Wonderful tribute
My fellow veterans, if you
did not attend the Aaron A.
Weaver Chapter 776 Purple
Heart Chapter program Feb.
17 at the park in Crystal River,
you missed out on an excellent
dedication not only to our war-


wounded veterans, but to all
military veterans past and
present
It was free, the weather
warmed up, the MC did an
outstanding job, the Citrus
Detachment of the Marine
Corps League did the rifle cer-
emony, the Young Marines, as
usual, did an excellent job of
presenting our Colors and it
was just a great, great pro-
gram.
A mother of a man killed in
Iraq brought tears to most of
us, not in sympathy but in
admiration. And when my per-
sonal friend Jonny Auble, a
IWO Marine, led us in the
pledge, and that wounded
police officer (what more to
say).
What a wonderful tribute.
This is what Americans are
made of.

C C NTY FL C ICLE










- CITRUS COUNTY (FL) GHRONICI E C~MMENTARY SUNDAY, MARCH 4, 2007 5C


.:.-: :-- --- Sound OFF::


Speed bump delay
I'm calling in concern to the
traffic going into Crystal River
High School. I drop my chil-
dren off there every day and
for the last six months since
school started, it's been fine.
We had no problems getting to
the school about 7:15 and hav-
ing them there on time. For the
past probably week we've been
having a problem with being
late, due to the new speed
bumps that they've put in. I've
called several times in concern
of this and they assure me that
they're going to be doing some-
thing about it. Traffic is backed
up all the way from the school
to (State Road) 44 every day.
Today we had a couple of alter-
cations with a couple of the
parents that were in line with
the crossing guard or the traf-
fic officer that's outside and
he's stating that he's doing
what he's told to do. But we
are having a really very bad
problem with traffic getting into
the school, so I just would like
to have this put in the paper.
Maybe we can get something
done about it. Again, it's due to
the speed bumps. Ever since
the speed bumps have been
put in, the traffic has been very
bad and very backed up.
Not always green
Why take the traffic signal
out at (State Road) 44 and
Gospel Island Road? This light
has made a safe intersection
out of a dangerous one. So you
have to stop for a few seconds.


The life it saves might be yours
or a loved one. All the lights in
life can't be green. Sometimes
we have to stop. I know there
are drivers out there who
should never have to stop and
everyone should get out of
their way. That's the reason we
have traffic signals. I guess if
enough people get killed there,
they will install a permanent
signal light.
Idle laborers
I have nothing against
builders, but when their work-
ers are opposite beside my
house and I have to clean up
their lunch and their bottles
and everything because it's
thrown on my property, or to
tell them to get off my basket-
ball hoop when they want to
play basketball when they
should be working, then you're
encroaching on my property.
So stay off my property.
Free rides
Why the free ride for the
elected representatives, Hillary
and others, traveling the coun-
try at our expense to bring
their message to the folks?
They will campaign for at least
two years, all expenses paid ...
while their offices in D.C. are
vacant. The politicians, fol- .
lowed closely by the lawyers,
will finally destroy this country
from within.
Weapons sale
You people want to bash
Bush all the time, saying he
lied about the war in Iraq. But


remember back when Clinton
was in office, he sold the
weapons to them. So this coun-
try's been lying to themselves.
This country sold him weapons
of mass destruction, so that
takes the burden off of Bush
being at fault for it. So wake
up, America. Start thinking
about whatever president did
wrong in this country.
Expensive building
As a former builder and con-
struction person, I know that
Cypress Village Property
Owners Association grossly
underestimated the value and
cost of this new building. If
they go ahead as planned, the
building will cost approximately
$180,000 more than they esti-
mate and what they're asking
money for. I know this, as being
a homebuilder and a contrac-
tor. I know they underestimat-
ed. I've looked at the figures. I
know the building costs are
way out of line. Please vote no
on this building.
Just say no
I am sure everyone residing
in Cypress Village has now
received their property owners
report. Wow! How can you have
any confidence in a report with
so very many errors? Even on
the front page! I notice next
year there will be an extra
assessment of $3 per property
owner for the upkeep of
Cypress Boulevard median as
that project was not costed
correctly. Doesn't that make
you wonder about the estimat-


ed cost of the proposed office
building? Is that underestimat-
ed also to get approval to be
re-bid later? We had better vote
"no" for this building project or
we may end up not being able
to afford to live in Cypress
Village.
Charge for credit
I wonder how many people
know that if you pay your elec-
tric company by a Visa card
over the telephone, they charge
you $4. No matter whether you
paid over the telephone, they
charge you $4. What crooks.
Double standard?
I live in Sugarmill Woods in
Cypress Village and I asked if I
can have a shed and I would
put it behind my house where
it couldn't be seen from the
road. And they said no, it's
against deed restrictions. But
recently when I was up by the
wall in the front entrance, I
noticed that the Cypress Village
Property Owners Association
had a really large, large shed
hidden behind that wall. Now
why can they have a shed and
the residents cannot have a
shed? Are they above the deed
restrictions in Sugarmill
Woods? Why can they have it
and we can't? I need to know
this. This is ridiculous. I mean I
was told no sheds are allowed
in Sugarmill Woods, but yet
they have one.
Car tent sale
I'm calling in response to
"Sky flash." That light in the


sky was a car tent sale up in
Beverly Hills. They had four of
those big skylights flashing
around up there like they used
to show when a carnival come
to town years ago. So that
answers your question.

Nothing is free
In the paper, regarding
"Really just rent," a call-in: You
are 1,000 percent correct and
the same applies to your car,
also. Don't pay your car insur-
ance and watch how fast your
car and your driver's license
go. Everything's about money
this day and age. Nothing is for
free, believe me, nothing.

Stay in Iraq
We have a new ally in the war
against terrorism; it is the
country of Iraq. We are over
there now and the terrorists are
over there with us.-We are
doing the best we can. I am all
for this war. We must stay there
and stop the terrorists. Let's
kill them over there, otherwise
they will be coming over here
to kill us. Do you understand
this? It is very clear.

Unfunded mandates
Several weeks ago I read an
article about unfunded man-
dates, by Susan Franks. I can-
not understand how
Tallahassee - or, better yet,
our representatives there -
have not done anything about
it. I would like to hear from ,
others that have read this arti-
cle.


Airport security
An interesting article in anoth-
er local paper discusses people
who own homes in Florida who
live in another foreign country.
Examples given were Scotland
and England. And these people
are complaining that when they
come to the United States once
or twice a year to stay in their
home down here, that they're
questioned at the airports like
they were, like the one guy put
it, "like we were something that
was wiped off the bottom of
their shoe." I don't understand
these people. Just because they
own another house here, did
they think all of a sudden
there's something stamped on
their forehead that said, "Hey
look, I'm one of the good guys.
I own property in the United
States. I've got money. Why are
you bothering me?" Ever since
9/11, I think this country's final-
ly taken a good stand, and
these people think that just
because they own property here
and that they may be legal and
not any problem, that we're
supposed to just forget who
they are and just open the door
and say, "Come on right in." I
still think we need to question
everybody that comes in that is
not a citizen of the United
States, and really look at them
to make sure there isn't some
(problem). Terrorism today is
even conducted by children, and
this is the thing that we've got
to be careful of and not let our
guards down. So good job, to
the people at the airports.

With false

promises,

reader

bought an

ailing home
DEAR BRUCE: We
recently purchased a 13-
year-old house. At the
closing, they gave us papers
saying the septic and water
were in satisfactory condition.
Shortly after moving in, we
had a heavy rain and water
entered the basement
They told us there was a
problem with water in only
one area. Several months later,
we had a water-softener serv-
ice test the water. They said it
should not be consumed
unless their service was
installed. We have been drink-
ing bottled water ever since.
The company came back and
tested it on several occasions
and they continue to say the
water should not be consumed.
Shortly after that, we had
problems with the septic sys-
tem. Digging down, we found
some of the pipes had been
crushed and some were not
even connected to the system.
Who is responsible for all of
these problems? - P.T., via e-
mail
DEAR P.T.: Hopefully, you
had an attorriey represent you
when this property was pur-
chased.
If representations were
made in writing that were
clearly in error, you may very
well have the ability to be
reimbursed by the seller
(assuming they still have
assets). Representations of
lack of fault are very important
in real transactions. Some
states require the information
be given gratuitously; in oth-
ers, it is only required if a
question is asked directly It is
wise to ask pertinent ques-
tions. Then, you have to
demonstrate the persons pro-
viding these warranties knew
of the flaw. For example, to
prove they knew the septic
tank was crushed might be
very difficult to do. The water
intrusion is another matter. It
is pretty hard to ignore that If,
in fact, I am correct in that
counsel represented you at the
closing, he is the guy to start
with. He can go back through
his files, see what representa-
tions have been made and act
appropriately against the sell-
er
DEAR BRUCE: We recently
had a garage built After pay-
ing one-third of the total cost
and getting the cement-slab
floor installed, the business
filed for bankruptcy. We were
able to get the garage finished
by another contractor for the
same price.
Now we find a mechanic's
lien filed against our property,
because the original builder
did not pay the concrete sup-
plier. We had paid him for the
concrete in our first install-
ment
I assume we can't come back
on him for the money because
he is in bankruptcy How can
we be held responsible for the
cement company extending
credit to someone? Is there
anything we can do? -
Reader, via e-mail
DEAR READER: When you
deal with contractors, you are
constantly in jeopardy, unless
you are extremely particular
to have each and every deliv-
ery made to your property
accompanied by a PAID-IN-
FULL receipt
Otherwise, in most jurisdic-
tions, the supplier is allowed
to file a mechanic's lien

CARLOS CHAVEZ/Los Angeles Times
Charlotte LeBaron, 2, at a Target store, reaches for a Polly Wheels. Whether the cars will lure the doll-playing set remains in question.






Mattel gears cars for girls


Parents race to the mal for Polly Whees


Los Angeles Times


They're small, fast and made for
racing. But they are also pink or
purple and sparkly, and come with a
- tiny doll. -
Girls are getting their own line of
$3 toy race cars this year from the
maker of Matchbox - half a centu-
ry after that brand, now owned by
Mattel Inc., introduced its classic
die-cast toy for boys.
Long after the
women's move-
ment prompted
equality in play- Girls
things, with receptive
sewing sets for
boys and tool kits interested
for girls, no
major toy compa- nongend
ny had endeav-
ored to create an things
entire line of
miniature die-
cast racers just Gerianne
for girls. psychologist and
"Sometimes
you just see
things that you look at, scratch your
head and say, 'Why didn't anybody
think of this before?'" said Jim
Silver, editor and co-publisher of
Toy Wishes magazine. "It's so obvi-
ous, but nobody has really done it"
As its new line hits store shelves,
El Segundo, Calif.-based Mattel is
trying to combine two of its best sell-
ers - dolls and cars.
The company recently introduced
its initial collection of 25 Polly
Wheels - cars driven by its Polly


Pocket dolls - at the American
International Toy Fair in New York
The question is whether today's.
doll-playing set - and the parents
who shop for them - will want
-them.- - .-.. . - :.
One expert in gender and devel-
opment, who has studied how boys
and girls choose toys, sees promise
in the idea.
By adding the doll and using
themes such as taking a trip to the
mall, Mattel
introduces a
social dimen-
s are more sion to the Polly
and more Wheels race
and more cars that is more
d in these likely to appeal
to girls, said psy-
er-typical c h o I o g i s t
Gerianne M.
; Alexander, an
associate pro-
fessor at Texas
M. Alexander A&M University.
associate professor at Studies have
Texas shown that as
many as 40 per-
cent of women recall playing with
toy cars and trucks, she said.
"They would have a harder time
selling baby dolls to boys,"
Alexander said of Mattel's mar-
keters. "Girls are more receptive
and more interested in these non-
* gender-typical things."
Elissa Barnes of Los Angeles said
her two daughters - particularly
her 5 1/2-year-old Polly fan - might
be interested in the cars as acces-
sories for their dolls.


In a shift from its Matchbox racers geared toward boys, Mattel's Polly
Wheels come with tiny removable Polly Pocket dolls and frosted plastic cov-
ering the metal chassis.


Still, she said she didn't think
Polly Wheels would have the same
staying power as a collectible that
Matchbox has had with her son.
"They'll play with it as long as
they're into Polly Pocket, but I don't
think it will go on longer than that,"
said Barnes, 37. "You always feel
bad making the stereotypes, but
boys and girls play differently"
The idea wasn't appealing to Los
Angeles resident Carolyn
Mahboubi, 39, who works in the lux-
ury goods industry and has a 7-year-
old daughter and a 5-year-old son.
"It's almost a cliched femininity,
sparkling and smelling and pink
and going to the mall," Mahboubi

Despite such skeptics, Mattel
seems to have history on its side.
Girls for decades have played
with bigger cars that could accom-

vertibles, music-blaring limos and
flower-adorned recreational vehi-
cles. And every year, $200-plus

Promotional information from the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce

Chamber benefits abound


Are you tired of the high cost of
'health insurance? Are you looking for
a way to attract and retain good
employees?
The Florida Legislature passed a
'law in 2005 allowing employers to pay-
roll deduct individual health insur-
ance for their employees at little or no
cost to the employer!
Your Citrus County Chamber of
Commerce, in association with
Affiliated Health Insurers, is offering
.an exclusive health- insurance and
.benefit plan for its members. It is
called the Citrus County Chamber
-Elite Benefit Plan. The following is an
endorsement from one of our
Chamber members who is enrolled in
,the Elite Benefit Plan:
"Thank you for your help in offering
affordable health insurance coverage
for our staffmembers. AS you know, it
is very difficult to find and retain
good, dependable employees. I am


lucky to have such a great staff-the one
issue that kept resurfacing, however,
was the fact that we did not have
health insurance available to our
employees. I was pleased to find your
insert in the Citrus County Chamber's
newsletter. The products available
were presented to the staff in a pro-
fessional manner that was easy to
understand. The coverage was afford-
able and the policies offered were
personalized to every individual's
needs. I am very pleased with the
variety of policies and coverage avail-
able to each individual. It would have
been difficult and time consuming to
pay each premium separately. One
bill, once a month makes the account-
ing simple. Thanks again for your
help. We look forward to working with
you in the future." - Teri Adkisson,
General Manager, Central Motel.
The Citrus County Chamber of
Commerce hopes that you, our

insurance available to our employees.

Teri Adkisson
general manager, Central Hotel


Chamber members, will take advan-
tage of this tremendous opportunity.
If your business is not currently a
member of the Citrus County
Chamber of Commerce, we encourage


you to call one of our three local offices
to find out more about the Elite
Benefit Plan and the many other bene-
fits the Chamber provides for its mem-
bers.

Social workers
celebrate in March
"What the Social Service Office
Does For You!"
We as Social Workers provide
a variety of services to our resi-
dents, family and staff members.
The Social Worker is the
Patient Advocate. We are "the
voice" for the resident, ensuring
Resident Rights are respected
and dignity maintained.
We are the "Complaint
Officers." Any concerns or griev-
ances are processed through the
Social Service office. We make
sure they are addressed and fol-
lowed within a timely manner.
Social Services provides coun-
seling for depression, adjustment
and anxiety. We also refer to out-
side counseling as needed.
We have a Family Support
Group the first Wednesday of
every month. The new time is 1
p.m. in the Conference Room.
We encourage family members to
attend and share their feeling and
experiences with others. Family
members often have difficulty
adjusting to placement of a
spouse or loved one in a Long
Term Care Facility, experiencing
a lot of guilt and anger.
Social Workers also assist with
discharge planning. This process
is with the interdisciplinary team
including recommendations from
the Doctor, Therapy Department,
Nursing, Social Services, family
and of course the resident. Social
Services orders the medical
equipment, home health, assists
with ordering "Meals on Wheels,"
and Guardian/Life Line as need-
ed, and many other community
resources. Our goal for each resi-
dent to discharge to a safe envi-
ronment with proper care and
sufficient services to maintain
them at home.

themselves, were ideas that

the Homosassa club. "We have
a chance to help so many peo-
ple at a time when the food
banks are lowest, while we
assist more women in reaching
their fitness and weight loss
goals. It's a win-win situation for
everyone, and we're very proud
to participate."

Fluorescent lights are

an incandescent issue


Los Angeles Times
A new light is about to burn
more brightly: the stubby,
squiggly. fluorescent bulb.
Environmentalists love it, Wal-
Mart is promoting it and
Australia is eyeing it as an
easy way to save energy and
curb global warming.
Now, California lawmakers
are considering banning the
sale of old-fashioned incan-
descent bulbs beginning in
2012.
The proposed switch repre-
sents a revolution in a lamp
shade, because incandescents
account for 95 percent of light-
bulb sales. But replacing each
descendant of Thomas A.
Edison's invention with a low-
energy, long-lasting, compact
fluorescent bulb would slash
electricity consumption by 75
percent, proponents say.
Retired aerospace engineer
Frank Vincent is sold. "I use
them. It saves me energy and it
saves me money on that ener-
gy," said Vincent, 63, who was
shopping Friday at a Wal-Mart
store.
Wal-Mart has thrown consid-


erable marketing might
behind the funny-looking
bulbs, urging its 100 million
customers to buy at least one,
which the world's largest
retailer says would save the
users $3 billion over the bulbs'
life.
The companies that make
traditional incandescent bulbs
aren't ready to accept the idea
that their wares, introduced by
Edison in 1879, will go the way
of the whale oil lamp, despite
talk of bans in California and
Britain, and Australia's
announcement this week that
it would unplug the bulbs over
the next three years.
General Electric Co., the
company founded by Edison
and the largest light bulb man-
ufacturer in the United States,
announced Friday that it's
developing a new generation
of incandescent bulbs that will
be twice as efficient as current
bulbs and will be ready for the
market in 2010: An even more
energy-stingy version - equal
to the compact fluorescents -
should be in stores by 2012
when California's proposed
prohibition would take effect

Understanding the fertilizer label?


H ave you ever spent the time to
thoroughly read a fertilizer label
before purchasing a specific
product? Or do you just read the brand
name, a few key numbers, or large print
words like "slow release" and then buy
that product? There is important infor-
mation on the fertilizer label that could
influence you purchasing decision. The :
following are a few key pieces of infor-
mation to note when examining a fertil- Ant
izer label: Cam
Beneath the brand name is the guar- YARS
anteed analysis represented by three
large numbers. The first number is the GARI
percent nitrogen called total nitrogen.
The second number is the percent phosphorus
referred to as available phosphate. The third num-
ber is the percent potassium which is called solu-
ble potash.
A common term you may see associated with the
nitrogen source is "organic." On a fertilizer label
the term "organic" does not indicate if a product is
natural or not Rather organic refers to the fact if
the nitrogen source contains carbon of not The
label should indicate if the nitrogen source is "nat-
ural organic" or "synthetic organic."
Secondary nutrients, sometimes called micro-
nutrients, are often present in. a fertilizer. This
information is listed after the total nitrogen, avail-
able phosphate, and soluble potash statement on
the label. The type and percent of secondary nutri-
ents will be stated in this portion of the label.
"Slow release" and "controlled release" are


h
e


terms that can be found as a footnote
near the bottom of the fertilizer label. In
order for a fertilizer product to carry
- the term "slow release," 15 percent of a
aw specific nutrient must be slow release.
For example, if a 10-10-10 fertilizer
carries the "slow release nitrogen"
term, at least 15 percent of the nitrogen
in the 10-10-10 fertilizer must be slow
release. It is important to note that vir-
.ony tually all commonly available slow
rino release fertilizer products also contain
S & quick release nitrogen.
ENS Taking the time to read and under-
stand the fertilizer label is a critical step
when deciding which fertilizer product
to buy. So before you decide to make a fertilizer
purchase at local garden center, make sure you
know what you are looking for in a fertilizer prod-
uct to achieve your goals with your landscape
plants. For more information, call 527-5700.

Marble with figure inside the 'Queen of Marbles'


Dear John: This marble
was one of my father's
toys when he grew up
near Henning, Min. He was
born May 30, 1906. The polar
bear inside the marble does not
have much detail, and what
detail it has seems difficult to
catch on camera.
That is really all I
know about it
It would be won-
derful to have it
written up in your
newspaper column.
Hopefully, there is a
picture you can use.
- G.P., Internet
Dear G.P.: John S
Marbles are a large S IKO
category of specific
collector interest. AT
The varieties of


R
1_


marbles are numerous and
were made of glass as well as
ceramic. Although marbles
have been produced since the
16th century, the game of mar-
bles did not become popular
until the mid-1800s.
I discovered a curious tidbit
about small, hapdmade glass
marbless' Opaque white-- ahd,
black marbles were once used
by fraternal organizations for


voting on potential members.
Each voter secretly took a mar-
ble from one side of the ballet
box and then placed it in the
other side, which was hidden
from view until opened in. front
of the entire voting members. A
white marble indicated a favor-
able vote; a black
indicated a negative
vote, hence the term
blackballed.
S Your marble with
a polar bear inside is
.. called .a sulfide,
often called the
"Queen of Marbles."
They were usually
ikorski made of clear glass
SKls'S with a figure inside
made of sulfide. The
TIC rarest are those with
colored figures
inside and of colored glass.
Potential dollar value of your
polar bear sulfide is $75 to $150.
Dear John: I enjoy your
Saturday morning program and
articles. I am not a camera buff
but I think the enclosed photo-
graph will give you an idea of
the item. .
It -is-a souvenir'brought' from
France in 1918 by my father who
was with the Motor Truck


Special to the Chronicle
Difficult to make out in this image, this clear-glass marble con-
tains the figure of a polar bear inside made of sulfide. Potential dol-
lar value is $75 to $150.


Corps. The item is a pink silk
purse with the flags of the Allies
embroidered on the front The
purse is edged with white fur
and is in-excellent'condition. I
am interested in selling it and I
need the value. - W.S.H.,


Internet
Dear W.S.H.: You have a nice
family heirloom. I think you
might consider passing it on in
the -family" wi thie' -story. It
would likely sell in the $50 to
$100 range.


This purse, a family heirloom
from France, would likely sell in
the $50 to $100 range.

Dear John: I have a musical
bottle. It is actually called a Mae
West Musical Bottle. It was
made by the Bols Company in
Amsterdam. I went to the Web
site and under collector items
they list the two musical bottles
made. One is the Ballerina
Bottle and the other the Mae
West Bottle. Their museum has

Dear MIB.: The photograph
is not very helpful. I am not
aware of any specific collector
interest Perhaps it was pro-
duced by a hobbyist. Potential
dollar value is catch-as-catch-
can.
Dear John: My husband had
some 33,1/3 and 78 rpm vinyl
records Some of them are
from artists popular in the
1940's and 50's like Jerry Vale
and Benny Goodman.
Is there anywhere I could
take them to see if they are of
any value or if I should just
throw them in the trash? -
ML., Internet
Dear M.L: Currently market
interest in the type of records
you ask about is practically
non-existent.
Most people that want to
enjoy the music for nostalgic
reasons can buy the music on
CD's. Rather th an trashing the
record-';- consider donating
them to a charitable organiza-
tion of your choice, perhaps
Hospice.

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE





trends


ARA Content

From exotic animal
prints to textures that
demand to be touched,
the hottest trend in tile
is to look like something it's
not
Today's tile manufacturers
are shattering the stereotypes
with vibrant colors, animal
prints, metal and wood effects
and dimensional textures.
Traditional floral motifs are
being reinvented and are as
much in demand as modern
motifs and graphic, circular
decorations.
"The trend is towards imitat-
ing fabrics and patterns already
welcomed in design, such as
leather, silk, damask and
denim, and leopard spots, tiger
stripes, alligator and snake skin
textures," says Tamara
Christian, CEO of National
Trade Productions (NTP), the
company that manages Cov-
erings, the premier internation-
al trade show and conference
dedicated exclusively to show-
casing the newest in ceramic
tile and natural stone. "Hot
motifs include circles, spheres
and abstract florals. And tex-
tured tile that invites tactile
experience is in high favor with
designers right now."
Coverings takes place April
17 to 20 in Chicago. Christian
predicts hot design trends will
include:
The sincerest form of flattery
Today's tile designers are
drawing inspiration from other
materials, using all the skills at
their disposal to create tiles
that imitate other well-loved
design elements. Today's tiles
can echo the beauty of such
diverse materials as fur, denim
and leather, natural wood or
metals. While they may look
like other, less durable materi-
als, these tiles, because they
are ceramic, offer unparal-
leled strength, flexibility and
endurance. Few materials per-
form as well on walls, floors or
countertops as ceramic tile.
Tactile tiles
If your idea of tile is a
hands-off, smooth, slick sur-
face, think again.
Manufacturers have started
putting as much touchability
as visual' appeal into. their tile
designs.. Grooves and reliefs


add visual appeal and turn tile
into a fashion statement.
Some draw their inspiration
from classic architecture, cre-
ating tile with vaults, domes
and pyramids. Others go play-
ful and modern with pentago-
nal shapes, circles, spheres
and pillow shapes.
"The idea is to create a tile
that appeals to your sense of
touch as much as your sense
of sight," says Christian.
It's hip to be circular
- and colorful
Color is back in interior
design. And according to
Christian, tile is following this
trend, offering designs saturat-
ed with color. Warm, neutral
tones share the stage with.
cool-water-inspired hues.
Round motifs are especially
hot, from simple circles to
more complex spherical
designs.
Grout is great
Grout has gone way beyond
its original function as the
simple adhesive that held the
tile in place. Today, grout can
be used as a decorative ele-
ment to enhance the design
message of virtually any tile.
"Homeowners are increas-
ingly demanding products
designed to turn their homes
into an oasis of relaxation,"
says Christian. "The tile indus-
try is meeting the demand
with products that add visual
and tactile appeal, as well as
dollars and cents value, to
their homes."
About coverings
Coverings, the premier int-
ernational trade show and
conference dedicated exclu-
sively to showcasing the new-
est in ceramic tile and natural
stone, has grown to be the
largest and most important
show of its kind.
Coverings features 1,200
exhibitors from more than 65
countries and attracts more
than 33,000 distributors, retail-
ers, fabricators, contractors
and specifiers, architectural
and design professionals,
builders and real estate devel-
opers, plus the press and jour-
nalists who cover this vital and
growing industry. Coverings is
the stage for introducing some
of the most innovative prod-
ucts in the world related to
tile and stone.


Special to the Chronicle
Inspired by the vaults, domes and pyramids of classic architecture, the Ecology Dimensions
Collection by Tres Estilos, a Tile of Spain branded manufacturer, appeals to the sense of touch as
well as sight.


AWHAT: Coverings ceramic
tile trade show.

WHERE: Chicago, III.
* CONTACT: Visit the Web

It may be "hip to be square," but in the tile world, circular is going
around. Italian' designer- Supergres+ employs a tri-color circular
motif in its Outline series.
