Marines ambushed in Afghanistan


Eight civilians

kiIled" US., Afghan

accounts differ

The Washington Post
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - At least
eight Afghan civilians were killed
Sunday in eastern Afghanistan when


U.S. Marines traveling in a convoy
were hit by a car bomb and responded
by firing in a way that some witnesses
alleged was reckless.
The incident, which the U.S. mili-
tary said resulted from a "complex
ambush," was followed by angry
demonstrations in which hundreds of
Afghans took to the streets, many
chanting anti-government and anti-
American slogans.
According to Afghan and U.S.
accounts, the Marine convoy was


struck by a van packed with explo-
sives as it traveled along a roadway
connecting the eastern city of
Jalalabad to the Pakistani border, in
the district of Mohmand Dara. The
portion of the road where the explo-
sion occurred is flanked by shops and
was crowded at the time of the blast
Immediately afterward, the convoy
was attacked by "small-arms fire from
several directions," said Lt. Col.
David Accetta, a U.S. military
spokesman. "The coalition forces


returned fire in self-defense. It's
unclear whether the casualties were
from the car bomb blast or from the
small-arms fire."
Accetta said that allegations that
the Marines fired indiscriminately
would be investigated but that "at this
point we don't have any information
that there was any wrongdoing by the
coalition forces."
Noor Agha Zuwak, spokesman for
the provincial governor, said the road-
way was shut down for two hours by


the crowds of protesters that formed
after the incident. They were shout-
ing "Down with the U.S.!" he said, and
"Down with Karzai!" a reference to
Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
The U.S. military at one point said
16 civilians were killed, but later
changed that estimate to eight An
official at a local hospital said late
Sunday that 14 people had died. The
military said 35 people were wound-

Joe Silvestro offers reflections about his lifelong love for 'America's national pastime'


ALAN FESTO

Chronicle
Life is about passion and if
anyone has it, it's Joe
Silvestro.
Joe grew up on Staten Island, the
smallest of five New York City bor-
oughs, with about 250,000 resi-
dents. Sure, that may have been
considered small-town living by the
Big Apple's standards, but it was


still a world apart from the small
Citrus County town he and his wife
would eventually call home.
It was there in the big city that
his love for music began to grow.
Joe was a professional drummer
and would periodically venture to
Las Vegas to play his music in tele-
vision commercials and jazz clubs,
and would even fill in for the
drummer on the Johnny Carson
show on occasion.
However, all that would be


pushed aside in 1965 as the 40-
year-old Italian opened up his own
delicatessen, Joe's Deli, paving the
way for a new passion to emerge.
Baseball. Umpiring to be exact -
a passion that would eventually
take him to the pinnacle of volun-
teer umpiring.
It was for that passion Joe
received an award Saturday morn-
ing at the Happy Dayz Dinner.
- Surrounded by family and friends,
Joe was given a plaque thanking


him for all his years of support and
dedication to the Inverness Little
League.
"I can't think of words to express
my... I haven't seen some of these
guys in 20 years," Joe said. "For
some of these people to come, it's
just fantastic."
Joe grew up a diehard Yankees
fan, but he would soon come to
appreciate what being a fan could

MIAMI - Several investiga-
tors are expected to testify
today in the trial of John Couey
about what they found in his
house that they believe links
him to the slaying of 9-year-old
Jessica Lunsford two years
ago.
A Florida Department of
Law Enforcement agent who
was key to the search of
Couey's bedroom will testify
about what he found. Other
investigators will also take the
stand to talk about physical
evidence collected at 6647 W.
Snowbird Court in Homosassa.
The witnesses will mark the
near-completion of the prose-
cution's case against Couey, 48,
accused of raping and killing
the Homosassa Elementary
School third-grader in
February 2005. Couey has
pleaded not guilty to charges
of premeditated murder, kid-
napping, sexual battery and
burglary.
The state is seeking the
death penalty.
Today is the third day of tes-
timony in the trial since jury
selection began in the case
Feb. 12, at the Richard E.
Gerstein Justice Building. It
took nearly three weeks for a
12-person jury to be picked,
with attorneys having trouble
finding jurors who wouldn't
have troubles being
sequestered for up to three
weeks.
Prosecutors have around 15

'Hogs' rolls over competition


Associated Press

LOS ANGELES - The biker buddy
comedy "Wild Hogs" and its ensemble cast
of John Travolta, Martin Lawrence,
William H. Macy and Tim Allen was the
weekend box office champ with a $38 mil-
lion take, according to studio estimates
Sunday.
It was Walt Disney Co.'s biggest March
opening ever. It was also the largest-ever
debut for the 53-year-old Travolta, as well
as the best non-animated movie debut for
Allen, who is also 53. Macy turns 57 next
week and Lawrence turns 42 next month.
"It's so easy to see in the material how
much fun they were having together. The
audience was looking for that first great
comedy of the year," said Disney president
of distribution Chuck Viane.
"Wild Hogs" performed well beyond
expectations, said Paul Dergarabedian,
president of box-office tracker Media By
Numbers. It had been expected to be No. 1
with earnings in the $25 million range, he
said.


The No. 2 movie was the thriller
"Zodiac," which debuted with $13.1 mil-
lion. "Ghost Rider" fell to No. 3 in its third
week of release with $11.5 million, "Bridge
to Terabithia" was fourth with $8.6 mil-
lion, and "The Number 23" dropped to
fifth with $7.1 million in its second week.
Eddie Murphy's "Norbit" continued to
draw crowds, placing sixth in its fourth
week of release with a $6.4 million take
that boosted its cumulative tally to $83 mil-
lion.
"Music & Lyrics" was No. 7 with $4.9
million and the new movie "Black Snake
Moan," about an aging black man who
chains a young white woman to a radiator
to cure her of her demons, only took in $4
million for eighth place.
Rounding out the Top 10 was ninth
place "Reno 911!: Miami" with $3.8 million
and "Breach" with $3.5 million.
Estimated ticket sales for Friday
through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian the-
aters, according to Media By Numbers
LLC. Final figures will be released
Monday.

LONDON - If Kanye West
were to walk into the British
Raj's dining room and order
dinner, it would cost the rap-
per about $17.50. But since the
restaurant is delivering -
from Wales to New York - it's
going to cost a bit more.
For a feast of
onion bhajees,
chapati
breads, birya-
nis, pappad-
ums, a special-
ly prepared
fish dish and
vegetables on
the side, the Kanye
bill will top West
$3,900, plus
travel and accommodation for
the restaurant's head chef.
"I was horrified when I
heard about this request
because of the distance
involved," said the restau-
rant's head waiter, Tarik
Mohammed. "It's a long way,
and our reputation is on the
line."
The meal will be prepared,
cooled, shrink-wrapped and
packed in dry ice in the


British Raj's kitchens and -
along with head chef Kaysor
Ahmed - will be helicoptered
from Wales to London's
Heathrow Airport on Tuesday.
From there, the chef is to
hop a flight to New York -
monitoring the food's temper-
ature all the way - clear cus-
toms, and head for Manhattan,
where the meal is to be served
during a meeting Wednesday.

Grenier loves job
ASPEN, Colo. -Adrian
Grenier says he isn't having to
work hard playing Vince
Chase on the HBO,hit series
"Entourage."
"This show is about friend-
ship and.having the time of
your lives," Grenier said at the
U.S. Comedy Arts Festival.
"Every week we do a new
episode, we're in a new, excit-
ing location. All we have to do
is have fun all day long."
Grenier, who has appeared
in more than 20 films during
his short career, said he has
more in common with Chase
than differences.
"I always say I'm a 'B' actor
playing an A-list celebrity," he
said.


TOP MOVIES
1. "Wild Hogs," $38 million.
2. "Zodiac," $13.1 million.
3. "Ghost Rider," $11.5 million.
4. "Bridge to Terabithia," $8.6 million.
5. "The Number 23," $7.1 million.
6. "Norbit," $6.4 million.
7. "Music & Lyrics," $4.9 million.
8. "Black Snake Moan," $4 million.
9. "Reno 911!: Miami" $3.8 million.
10. "Breach," $3.5 million.

"It's just astonishing," Dergarabedian
said. "It was the perfect vehicle for these
four stars. A combination of star power,
great concept and great marketing was
responsible.
"This is not an Oscar contender, but it's
a fun time at the movies. You know, some-
times it's just about escapism."
No other films were even close.

Today in


Today is Monday, March 5, the
64th day of 2007. There are 301
days left in the year.
Today's Highlight in History:
On March 5,1946, Winston
Churchill delivered his famous
"Iron Curtain" speech at
Westminster College in Fulton,
Mo. Said Churchill: "From Stettin in
the Baltic, to Trieste in the Adriatic,
an 'iron curtain' has descended
across the continent, allowing
police governments to rule Eastern
Europe."
On this date:
In 1770, the Boston Massacre
took place as British soldiers
who'd been taunted by a crowd of
colonists opened fire, killing five
people.
. In 1933, in, German parliamen-
tary elections, the Nazi Party won
44 percent of the vote, enabling it
to join with the Nationalists to gain
a slender majority in the
Reichstag.
In 1953, Soviet dictator Josef
Stalin died at age 73 after 29 years
in power.
In 1963, country music perform-
ers Patsy Cline, "Cowboy" Copas
and "Hawkshaw" Hawkins died in
a plane crash near Camden, Tenn.
In 1982, comedian John Belushi
was found dead of a drug over-
dose in a rented bungalow in
Hollywood, Calif.; he was 33.
Ten years ago: The Ohio River
rose to its highest level in a gener-
ation, flooding the Louisville, Ky.,
area.
Five years ago: President Bush
slapped punishing tariffs of 8 per-
cent to 30 percent on several
types of imported steel in an effort
to aid the ailing U.S. industry.
One year ago: "Crash" won the
Best Picture Academy Award in an
upset over "Brokeback Mountain";
Philip Seymour Hoffman won Best
Actor for "Capote" and Reese
Witherspoon won Best Actress for
"Walk the Line."
Today's Birthdays: Actor Dean
Stockwell is 71. Actor Fred
Williamson is 69. Actor Michael
Warren is 61. Actor Eddie Hodges
is 60. Actress-comedian Marsha
Warfield is 53. Magician Penn
Jillette is 52. Actress Adriana
Barraza ("Babel") is 51. Rock
singer Charlie Reid is 45. Rock
singer Craig Reid is 45. Rock
musician John Frusciante (Red
Hot Chili Peppers) is 37. Singer
Rome is 37. Model Niki Taylor is
32. Actress Eva Mendes is 29.
SThought for Today: "More
tears have been shed over men's
lack of manners than their lack of
morals." - Helen Hathaway,
American writer (1893-1932).

Shuttle back at hangar


Associated Press

CAPE CANAVERAL - Space shuttle
Atlantis on Sunday was moved from the
launch pad back to a hangar so techni-
cians can inspect damage caused by an
hail storm and determine what kind of
repairs should be made.
The 3.4-mile journey aboard the mas-
sive crawler-transporter took about seven
hours.
It was the 17th time in the 26-year-old
shuttle program that one of the vehicles
had to be moved back to the Vehicle
Assembly Building from the launch pad.
Last week's hail storm caused thou-
sands of dings in the insulating foam cov-

Inside the hangar, technicians will be
able to assess whether the repairs to the
tank can be made at the Kennedy Space
Center or if the tank needs to be shipped
back to its manufacturer near New
Orleans, which likely would push back the
launch to June.
The insulating foam is of special con-
cern to NASA since a chunk of it flew off
during space shuttle Columbia's launch in
2003 and struck the orbiter. The damage
allowed fiery gases to penetrate Columbia

NASA redesigned the external tank,

Trailer fire kills 4
IMMOKALEE - Four people were killed and
six injured early Sunday when a suspicious fire
raced through a crowded trailer in this rural '
southwest Florida community, authorities said.
Collier County sheriff's detectives and the
State Fire Marshal's office called the fire arson,
but declined to release additional details, sher-

deputy director of the hospital

four patients were in critical

Accetta said the anger aimed

there would be civilian casual-

to 20 more items of evidence to
-be introduced before wrapping
up their case, State Attorney
-Brad King said Friday.
'Expected evidence will likely
include testimony that blood
found on a mattress taken from
Couey's bedroom matched
Jessica's.
Prosecutors could not say
'Friday how many witnesses are
left, but figured to wrap up tes-
timony by possibly Tuesday
Upcoming witnesses will
include Dr. Steven Cogswell,
the medical examiner that per-
-formed Jessica's autopsy.
' Cogswell said in a 2006 depo-
-sition it was his belief the girl
:.was alive when buried in a
,hole found behind Couey's
:home. He labeled her cause of
,death as asphyxiation.
Couey reportedly told Citrus
County Sheriff's detectives he
.'buried the girl alive in trash

i-mobile home he lived in. Her

spark public outrage over the
perception that foreign troops
are not taking enough precau-
tions to avoid civilian casual-
ties. Last May, for instance, a
U.S. military cargo truck lost
control and struck 12 vehicles,
killing one person and injuring
six. A riot ensued in Kabul, and
20 people died, 160 were
injured and dozens of build-
ings were damaged or
destroyed.


The March 17, 2005, state-
ments Couey gave were ruled
inadmissible for the trial, with
a judge saying detectives vio-
lated his rights by ignoring his
repeated requests for an attor-
ney.
However, some of the last
witnesses expected to testify
for the prosecution are guards
at the Citrus County jail where
Couey has been housed since
his arrest Couey is said to have
made incriminating state-
ments to Corrections Officer
John Read. He reportedly said
he kept Jessica in his closet
before burying her and clean-
ing his room with bleach to
conceal evidence.
According to court docu-
ments, Couey also reportedly
told guard Kenneth Slanker he
didn't mean to kill her, during a
March 8, 2006, conversation at
the jail.
Defense plans
Couey's public defenders are
expected to bring just a few
witnesses to the stand, includ-
ing Dr. Robert Berland, a psy-
chologist from Brandon.
Berland will likely testify the
guards took advantage of
Couey's isolation in the jail

He'll also likely talk about
Couey's mental state, which he
previously claimed includes a
longstanding psychotic distur-
bance caused by abuse when
he was a child, and other fac-
tors.
Berland also believes Couey
is mildly retarded, according to
testimony at a recent hearing
to allow the statements Couey
is said to have made to Read
and others.
If Couey is convicted of the
charges, Berland would testify
again during the penalty
phase, when the jury would
determine if Couey should
receive death by lethal injec-
tion. The defense would be
able to present mitigating evi-
dence it believes shows Couey
should not be executed.
If the defense convinces
jurors Couey suffers from men-
tal illness, he could avoid the
death penalty.

never do: Make him part of the
game. That realization came on
the day he watched his nephew
play in a baseball game. The
game was one umpire short, so
Joe decided to jump in and
help out.
"They'd be short of umpires,
so I volunteered and I liked it,"
he said.
The rest, as they say, is histo-
ry.
He had been bitten by the
bug, and for Joe there was no
turning back. Seven years later,
when he and his wife decided
to pick up and head south to
Florida, where they had a
daughter attending St. Leo
College, his passion for umpir-
ing caught fire.
"I was held up twice, I was
broken into three times and I
said to my wife, 'it's time to get
the hell out of here,'" Joe said
with a laugh.
And that's exactly what they
did, leaving the Big Apple for
the Sunshine State in 1972,
where they landed in the small
town of Inverness.
"Why did we pick Inverness?
Honestly, we don't know," Joe
said.
That decision would have an
impact on many lives in and
around Citrus County.
"He had a great impact on
my son, who went on to play
college ball," said Citrus assis-
tant principal Rick Darby.
"He's absolutely great to
adults; he's even greater to
kids."
Joe brought two things with
him from New York: his deli-
catessen, which is. now run by
his son-in-law, and his love for
baseball.
One day Joe decided to
attend a local Little League
game, and of course they were
short an umpire. And so he was
asked to fill in. He quickly


C i- k 1 -


obliged despite not being
dressed for the occasion.
"I went out and I got
involved, that's the story," he
said.
That story took a turn for the
worse a few years later when
Joe suffered a heart attack.
After that, umpiring was cer-
tainly out of the question - at
least it would be for most peo-
ple.
"It hurt really bad because I
really loved the game," he said.
Joe managed a quick recov-
ery and after a couple of years
off, he was back behind the
plate. He even ran the conces-
sion stand sometimes. However,
from that point forward he
would have to carry nitroglyc-
erin pills in his right jacket
pocket in case of future attacks.
"He would tell us, 'if I'm on
the field and I go down I keep
my nitros in my right pocket, put
them under my tongue,"' said
his good friend, Inverness City
Manager Frank DiGiovanni.
Most people would probably
laugh at the idea of risking
your life on a baseball dia-
mond with no paycheck at the
end of theweek. But not Joe -
not for the game he loved.
"The pay you get is 'thank
you' from some of the parents;
that means so much" he said.
"When a kid comes up and
says, 'Thank you Mr. Joe for
umpiring,' you feel 20 feet tall."
The love of the game can
only keep someone around for
so long. Joe spent more than 20
years of his life devoting his
time and energy to not just the
game, but more importantly
the kids.

cult, but Joe still got them to
the ball park.
"That guy talked guys in this
community into not only
umpiring, but into buying the
uniform and the shoes,"
DiGiovanni said.
Umpires always want to get
the calls on the field right, and
in Little League, parents will
always be the first to tell them
when they think they've
screwed up - especially when
it involves their own child.
"They could lose by 15 runs,
but they're still going to blame
you for calling a ball instead of
a strike," Joe said.
Judging by the call Joe got in
1983, he must have got most of
them right.
Joe was asked to umpire the
Little League World Series in
Williamsport, Pa., that year
after being nominated by his
district manager.
"I was very, very nervous,"
Joe said. "But once you get on
the field, if you're doing the
plate ... after that first pitch,
then you're OK"
He was also asked to umpire
the Senior League World
Series in Gary, Ind. and the 13-
year-old division in South
Florida.
Joe retired from umpiring in
the late 1980s - he wasn't sure
exactly when - but would still
hold umpire clinics around the
state.
"Anything to be involved," he
said.
He was finally forced to slow
down a couple of years ago
when he suffered a "bad" heart
attack and was warned by his
doctors to take it easy from now
on.
Today, the 82-year-old has
slowed down, but the passion
clearly remains.
"When you're doing some-
thing you enjoy, time is of no
essence. You can go on and on
and on," he said of sports and
music. "I never got tired of
doing either one."

Senator says he talked to prosecutor


Attorney believes

he was fired for

political reasons

Associated Press

WASHINGTON - New Mexico Sen.
Pete *Domenici acknowledged Sunday
that he called a federal prosecutor to
ask about a criminal investigation, but
insisted he never pressured nor threat-
ened his state's U.S. attorney
The prosecutor, David Iglesias, was
fired by the Justice Department in
December. Iglesias says he believes he
was dismissed for resisting pressure
from two members of Congress before
last year's election to rush indictments


in a Democratic kickback investigation.
Ethics experts said Domenici's con-
duct may have violated Senate rules,
which generally bar communications
between members of Congress and fed-
eral prosecutors about ongoing crimi-
nal investigations.
Iglesias, a Republican, has said he
would not name the lawmakers unless
asked under oath.
A House Judiciary subcommittee
subpoenaed the prosecutor last week to
appear Tuesday and testify under oath.
He also was scheduled to appear before
a Senate committee the same day.
Domenici refused last week to say if he
had contacted Iglesias, insisting in a
brief interview with the Associated
Press, "I have no idea what he's talking
about."
But in his statement Sunday, the
Republican senator said he called


Iglesias last year and asked "if he could
tell me what was going on in that inves-
tigation and give me an idea of what
time frame we were looking at.
"It was a very brief conversation,
which concluded when I was told that
the courthouse investigation would be
continuing for a lengthy period,"
Domenici said in the statement.
"In retrospect, I regret making that
call and I apologize," Domenici said.
"However, at no time in that conversa-
tion or any other conversation with Mr.
Iglesias did I ever tell him what course
of action I thought he should take on
any legal matter. I have never pres-
sured him nor threatened him in any
way."
Kenneth Gross, a Washington lawyer
who specializes in congressional ethics
rules, said Domenici's phone call to
Iglesias could have violated Senate


ethics rules if there was an element'of
pressure or coercion to his inquiry.
"It doesn't sound very good to me,"
Gross said. "But requests for the status
of cases are generally considered per-
missible."
Punishment for such violations rang6
from a warning and reprimand t6
expulsion from office.
Abbe D. Lowell, a criminal defense
lawyer who served as special assistant
to the attorney general during the
Carter Administration, said it was hard
to determine if there was a violation
without knowing what Domenici kneNw
about the investigation when he made
the call and what exactly he said. ,
But Lowell added, "The safest course
of a member of Congress is not to make
inquiries of prosecutors about pending
matters so their motives and actions
cannot be misunderstood."


Treasury secretary upbeat about economy.


Paulson says

China not an

economic enemy

Associated Press

WASHINGTON - Treasury
Secretary Henry Paulson says
the economy is healthy, inflation
seems under control and the Un-
ited States should not perceive
China as an economic enemy
After a week in which the
Dow Jones industrials posted
their worst weekly perform-
ance in more than four years,
Paulson said in a television
interview broadcast Sunday he
felt good about the economy
and discounted the chance of
an economic downtown.
"Markets never move in any
one direction forever in a
straight line. And so I look at it
and put it in perspective and


say, over the last year, the
Dow's up almost 11 percent,
the S&P's (the Standard &
Poor's 500 index) up 9 percent,
and I'll take it," Paulson said.
U.S. stocks dropped 416 points
last Tuesday after big declines in
China and other countries. Wall
Street's tumble rattled investor
confidence about the state of the
U.S. economy
The sell-off followed com-
ments a day earlier by former
Federal Reserve Chairman
Alan Greenspan that the econ-
omy might slip into recession
by year's end.
"Clearly, no one's got a crys-
tal ball. So there's always a pos-
sibility that there will be a
downturn, always a possibili-
ty," Paulson said. "But I don't
see it I think we have a healthy
economy in the U.S.
"You know, a year ago, when
the growth rates were much
higher, I was concerned. I said,
'Is this going to be sustainable?
Now I'm looking at it and I'm


seeing a situation where it
looks like we're successfully
making the transition.
"The consumer's strong.
Exports have been greater
than imports for quarters run-
ning, and they're adding to our
growth," the secretary said in
an interview taped Friday for
"This Week" on ABC.
"We've got a very healthy
labor market. ... Inflation
seems to be contained. And
what really makes a difference
to me is the average worker is
now beginning to feel the bene-
fits. Real income is up 2.1 per-
cent for the average American


worker over the last year. So
I'm feeling good about the U.S.
economy"
Paulson, who this week makes
his third visit to China as treas-
ury secretary, said it is essential
that both countries have strong
economic ties. The former head
of the investment company
Goldman Sachs has said China
is moving too slowly in over-
hauling its currency system and
cracking down on copyright
piracy U.S. businesses blame
these factors for the soaring U.S.
trade deficit with China.
"I would say that our rela-
tionship with China is multifac-

eted and it's a very important
relationship for the U.S. And I
don't believe we need to make
China an enemy," Paulson said.
"I think China is - this rela-
tionship is an important rela-
tionship, and the economic
relationship is an important
part of the overall relation-
ship," he said.
'"And if we manage that rela-
tionship properly on a long-
term basis, and if we manage
the relationship - the overall
relationship - with China
properly, it's going to benefit
both of our countries for a long
time to come."

Spelling bee participant out


Associated Press

CHIEFLAND - Disappointment: that's one
word a fifth grade spelling bee participant
knows after a spelling mistake by organizers
ousted him from competition.
Justin Ivey, 10, a fifth-grader at Chiefland
Elementary School was eliminated from a
regional spelling bee in Tallahassee after a
word he was given to spell by organizers was
misspelled on materials given to him.
Ivey advanced to the regional bee after win-
ning spelling bees in his class, school and coun-
ty. To prepare for the Tallahassee competition,
he received a booklet containing 700 words like-
ly to appear in the event. Like other partici-.
pants, he also got a letter a few days before the
contest with his first word. And he got a card
With the same word when he arrived at the com-
petition.


The problem: the word printed on Ivey's let-
ter and card was "RESTROSPECTIVE" instead
of the properly spelled "RETROSPECTIVE."
Ivey and his parents said that although the
word appeared misspelled to them they thought
it was what the judges would be expecting him
to spell. Instead, when he recited the mis-
spelled word, he was eliminated. The word does
appear correctly in the booklet the contestants
received.
"We made a mistake and sent a misspelled
word. We regretted the error, but the bee is done
and cannot be done over," said Thomas Tomasi,
market development director for the
Tallahassee Democrat, which sponsored the
bee.
Ivey's hoping that as a result of the mix-up he
might be allowed to return to the regional bee
next year without having to go through the other
elimination rounds.

Weeki Wachee Springs still


struggling to stay afloat


Associated Press

WEEK WACHEE - Nostal-
gia and a timely flood of dona-
tions saved the tails of the Weeki
Wachee Springs mermaids a
few years ago when the vintage
Florida roadside attraction
nearly succumbed to age and
indifference.
The mermaids are still swim-
ming for appreciative audi-
ences in this tiny town an hour
north of Tampa, but the waters
are far from calm.
The newly spruced up theme
park remains embroiled in a
distasteful dispute about its
lease with a state agency that
Weeki Wachee Springs' owners
say could spell the end for one of
the remaining tourist gems of
old Florida, celebrating its 60th
anniversary this year
But the agency, the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District, which owns the spring
and surrounding land and leas-
es it to the attraction, says Weeki
Wachee Springs owners are the
ones being obstinate and denies
that it wants the place shut
down.
Lawsuits have flown back and
forth. Mediation hasn't worked,
so now it's left to a judge to sort
out at a trial scheduled for
August.
The owners of the attraction
- actually the nine or so resi-
dents of the 1-square-mile city of
Weeki Wachee - say they're dig-
ging in for another go-round
with the state agency that nearly
did away with the mermaids in
2003.
That time, the international
media took note of the park's
financial plight, money poured
in from around the world and
big-box retailers donated con-
struction materials. People then
started coming back to see the
animal shows, swim in
Buccaneer Bay and, of course,
marvel at the comely young
women in sequined mermaid
tails performing choreographed
routines in the shimmering
spring.
But the park's owners and the
water management agency have
continued to butt heads over
issues ranging from the wording
and amount of the lease to the
unauthorized dredging of the
spring and whether the little
city is even allowed by law to
own the attraction.
Weeki Wachee Springs own-
ers say a ruling against them on
any one of several issues would
allow the water board to revoke
the lease. They believe the
intent is to close the park and

After surviving a closing scare three years ago with tails intact,
the future of the live mermaids of Weeki Wachee Springs, shown
in this September 2003 file photo, is in question again.


turn the spring and surrounding
land into a state park, an idea
that has been floated before by
agency board members.
Robyn Anderson, a former
Weeki Wachee mermaid who
now performs the dual role of
town mayor and park general
manager, says the continuing
legal challenges amount to sabo-
tage.
"It's this big agency beating up
on the little guy," she says. 'And
we're not going to back down."
But water management
agency spokesman Michael Mol-
ligan says it has been Anderson
and her attorney who have
blocked efforts to resolve the
issues and suggested they're
using the continuing dispute to
generate another wave of pub-
licity for the attraction.
Molligan said the conflict has
been just as frustrating for the
agency. Its goal is to make sure
the environmentally fragile
spring remains healthy and that
the attraction is being run prop-
erly
"We recognize the historic
nature of this park," he said.
"It's not our goal to shut down
Weeki Wachee. Our prime goal
is to make sure it's operating
safely."
Before the Orlando theme-
park empire was even a glim-
mer in Walt Disney's eye, the
live mermaids made Weeki
Wachee Springs one of Florida's
top tourist stops.
Situated along U.S. 19 - a
major tourist trail in the days
before Interstate 75 - Weeki
Wachee Springs debuted its
underwater show in 1947, fea-
turing young women in fish tails
breathing compressed air
through hoses as they somer-
saulted arid back-flipped
through choreographed rou-
tines.
In the park's heyday, as many
as 1 million visitors a year

From single ship to industry giant


Carnival prepares to celebrate 35

years in the cruise line business


Associated Press
MIAMI - Micky Arison says
it's probably time to start look-
ing ahead, like his father did
before him, to the moment
when he must find the next
chairman of Carnival Corp.
'At this stage, I'm 57, and I
have to start thinking about
those kinds of things," Arison
told The Associated Press in an
interview for Carnival's 35th
anniversary "We have a lot of
very talented executives around
the world. And over time, we'll
see how that all plays out"
Carnival Corp. is the world's
largest cruise operator, ferry-
ing 7 million passengers to
ports of call around the world
last year. The company, which
controls 12 brands, reported a
net income of $2.28 billion last
year.
Ted Arison started Carnival
Cruise Lines in 1972 with one
ship that ran aground on its
maiden voyage. The father
named the son president in
1979, and over the next 28 years,
Micky Arison and his employ-
ees have built Carnival through
aggressive expansion and
visionary marketing strategies.
On Sunday, Carnival held a
naming ceremony for the cor-
poration's 82nd ship, the
110,000-gross ton Carnival
Freedom, in Venice, Italy. The
1,487-cabin vessel will be offer-
ing a 12-day cruise through the
Mediterranean and Greek
Islands until it comes to
Florida in November.
The ship is one of 20 being
delivered to Carnival's brands
through 2011 - representing
an investment of billions of dol-
lars which will significantly


increase the amount of passen-
gers the cruise line can carry
Clearly, much has changed
since the first Carnival sailing
of the TSS Mardi Gras.
Ted Arison founded Carnival
Cruise Lines as part of a sub-
sidiary of American Inter-
national Travel Service of
Boston. But as the Mardi Gras
first set out from the Port of
Miami, it hit a sandbar. Micky
Arison was on the ship's bridge.
Two years later, Ted Arison
bought Carnival for $1 and the
assumption of $5 million in
AITS debt. Five years after
that, Micky Arison - who had
filled several jobs in the com-
pany - got called to his dad's
office for his promotion to
president
That's when Ted Arison left
the building.
"We butted heads a lot when
he was president and I was
vice president," Micky Arison
said. "He decided it was better
for the family's sake and oth-
ers' sake that, either he does it
his way or I do it my way, but
that butting of heads shouldn't
continue forever. He actually at
the time he did just walk away
from the company and did
other things."
Arison said he felt awkward
at the beginning.
"The issue was more, I would
say, pressure from executives
that I wasn't deserving to be
there and the nepotism issue
and all those kind of things,"
Arison said. "At times it was dif-
ficult, on the other hand there
was great opportunity."
By 1982, the company had
added three ships, including
the Tropicale, the first new
ship in the cruise industry in


several years.
In 1984, Carnival embarked
on a groundbreaking advertis-
ing blitz featuring "The Fun
Ships" slogan and the "Ain't We
Got Fun" television campaign.
Kathie Lee Johnson - who
would later become Kathie Lee
Gifford - sang in the television
commercial. Other actresses
considered included Berna-
dette Peters and Joyce DeWitt.
The buzz generated by the
ads led to the introduction of
three more ships by 1987, with
marketing targeted at a mid-
dle-income demographic.
"Those three ships doubled
the size of the company in
about 22 months," said Bob
Dickinson, 64, president and
CEO of Carnival Cruise Lines.
"Being on television, getting
the name out, creating funda-
mental demand was very criti-
cal to the success of that."
After its initial public offer-
ing in 1987, Carnival began to
expand. Carnival Corp. was
eventually created to encom-
pass acquisitions of Holland
America Line, Costa Cruises,
Princess Cruises, P&O Cruises
and others.
But such growth leads to
more problems.
Today, Carnival and other
cruise lines face scrutiny over
the effect of pollution from
their operations have on the
world's oceans. Increasing fuel
prices are hurting operating
costs, and the threat of hurri-
canes and chaotic world events
threaten the entire tourism
industry.
Another challenge for cruise
lines is maintaining or increas-
ing demand among a new gen-
eration of travelers.
"The hospitality industry in
general has to be aware that
just because they realize sub-
stantial profits from this gener-
ation, that doesn't mean the
next generation is going to

The new Carnival Freedom arrives Saturday in Venice, Italy, following a short voyage from its Italian
shipyard. The 22nd vessel for Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines is 952 feet long, has 1,487 state-

Arison seems confident in
Carnival's future once it's his
turn to step down. But will he
be in the same office five years

CITRUS CouTIY (FL.) CHRONICLE


Teens play role in defining



Boys & Girls Clubs events


Teenagers have very dehite
opinions. In that reject,
teenage members of thB3oys .
& Girls Clubs of Citrus Countyre no
different than any other kids 'that ' -
age. Teenage BGCCC memberthink
of their club sites as their own)ecial ,j
place to go after school and ctainly
not as "after school care."
The Crystal River and Irerness
sites have the largest teenageopula- Lane
tions, but the teenage popution at W^'
the Homosassa Club is growig fast GgIRLS
Teens are busy with parties fund-
raising events, such as eating
"haunted houses" at Halloven or having car
washes to fund special actives like swimming
with the manatees. They dosmmunity service
projects such as collecting !t supplies for the
Citrus County Humane Ceiety or forming
clean-up brigades in club nghborhoods. Their
activities are separate fromiose of the younger
members at club sites wii teenagers having
their own "teen rooms" ansupervising staff.
Teenager Matilda Brocht the Inverness site
describes her club as ar'awesome place to
come and hang out wit your friends after
school." She says, "The tings that make the
club rock are the staff arithe teen room" and


the fact that their room is only for
older kids.
Tim Robbins, another Inverness
' teen, describes the club as a "really
cool place." He says there are plenty
of things to do at the club, including
/ .^ , "surfing the internet, eating, watch-
: ing television, and playing outside."
Audrey Krollman adds that there is
time to do homework during Power
Vick Hour. Kaitlin Kirby tells us that every
.; & day when she walks into her
."L." --, Inverness club, there is a different
schedule with new activities and fun
things to do.
A new program at each site allows teens to
earn money for community service, maintaining
or raising grades, participating in club events
and having exceptionally good behavior.
Teenage members will also have special roles in
Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County summer
camps with their own activities and plans. More
information about BGCCC programs for teens
may be had by calling individual club sites or
the administrative office at 621-9225.


Lane Vick is a staffmember of the
Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County.

Backseat driver
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Emily
Lineberger missed her gymnastics
class this week, but thanks to the
11-year-old's heroics, she and her
mother survived what could have
been a tragic car wreck.
Emily was riding in the back seat
of the family car Tuesday when her
mother, Dayna Lineberger, started
feeling lightheaded.
Ulcerative colitis had caused
Lineberger to feel faint before, so
she decided to get food at a near-
by restaurant.
"Then it just hit me," said
Lineberger, 40. "The last thing I
remember is screaming to her, 'Tell
me where to turn,' because I could-
n't see...."
While heading into the restau-
rant parking lot, Lineberger's head
rolled back and she passed out,
Emily said.
"I just screamed like crazy,"
Emily said.
She leaned forward and grabbed
the wheel.
Her mother's foot was still on the
gas pedal, but Emily steered to
avoid a car before their car hit a
telephone pole and stopped -
unharmed.
Doctors later said Lineberger

Emily Lineberger, 11, sits at home with her mother Thursday in
Mathews, N.C. Emily was riding in the back seat of the family car
Tuesday when her mom passed out. The girl was able to steer the
car into a telephone pole and come to a stop. They were both
unharmed.


was dehydrated from the colitis.
"It was just her instinct and God
riding on her shoulders," Lineber-
ger said.


Change of heart
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -
Burglars who stole thousands of


dollars of equipment from the
Guyandotte United Methodist
Church apparently had a change of
heart, breaking in the following
night to return what they stole.
Thieves first jimmied the
church's door locks Monday night
and stole about $5,000 worth of
sound and office equipment,
church treasurer Rocky Frazier
said. Then, they broke back the
next night and returned everything.
"They taketh and the Lord giveth
back," Frazier said Friday. "It's like
there's a higher power at work."
The only thing the thieves didn't
return was about $22 in change,
Frazier said.
No loafers here
BROOKVILLE, Pa. - Jefferson
County's jail warden got a little tired
of inmates throwing food despite
repeated warnings not to, so he
fought back.
Warden David Riley recently
started feeding misbehaving in-
mates a food loaf, made up of all
the offerings at mealtime mixed
together and formed into a loaf.
"We microwave the food loaf
before it is served," Riley said. "It's
really not that bad."
Jails across the country com-


only serve food loafs as punish-
ment for bad behavior. Some jails
don't use the daily meal offerings,
but instead use a recipe that
includes ingredients like wheat
bread, beans, other vegetables
and cheeses in order to make sure
the inmate's diet meets daily nutri-
tional guidelines.
Five days after offering the
unique concoction, Riley said all
food throwing stopped at his jail.
"I had one inmate tell me, 'Well
warden, you broke me,'" Riley said.
"It has had the desired effect."
Something fishy
MELBOURNE, Australia -An
Australian woman was sentenced
Friday to nine months of communi-
ty service work for smuggling pro-
tected fish from Asia in her dress.

MONDAY, MARCH 5, 2007 11A

in the southern city of Melbourne
after cusjpms officers heard "flip-
ping" noises coming from her
clothes and conducted a search,
Australian Customs said.
In a specially made apron under
her dress, they found 15 plastic ,
bags filled with water and fish: one
rare Asian arowana that customs
said was worth tens of thousands
of dollars, and 14 catfish.
Naismith, who had arrived from
Singapore, pleaded guilty to a
charge of attempting to import reg-
ulated wildlife.
"Wildlife smuggling is a cruel
practice, as many offenders ignore
the health and well being of the
animals," said Australian Customs
senior officer Doug Nicoll.
"Such animals can also be
potential carriers of disease and
harm the Australian fish industry."

Property access
I'd like to know why the code
enforcement officer doesn't
have the authority to walk onto
somebody's property when
somebody made a complaint
about them being a slob neigh-
bbr, and the gates are open all
the time. And then when they
say they're going to come back
and see me and talk to me
about garbage in people's
yards, nobody ever shows up. I
mean isn't there a law that the
code enforcement officer is
authorized to walk on some-
body's property if a formal
cpmplaint is made and the
gate is wide open? Now I'd like
to know what the answer is to
this. People tell me they can't
dp it. I think the law is that
they're allowed to walk on that
property. Now let's get some-
thing done.
Plant's property
In reference to the article on
lthe loilins family ana the clash
over the mine's expansion in
your Feb. 11i edition: There's a
Statement there that when
Hollins -- Maurice Hollins,
they're speaking of - died in
-'91. the estate tax had forced
.-the family to seli off much of
the land, according to his son,
Dixie Hollins. Some of the land
-that was sold to Florida Power
,Company is now the site of the
'Crystal River Energy Complex,
which includes the nuclear
power plant and four coal-fired
:generating plants. When I
moved to Citrus County in
-1981, Florida Power had the
-nuclear power plant in opera-
;tion at that time. So my ques-
:tion, I guess, would be: Were
:they leasing the land from
,Maurice Hollins or is this arti-
cle incorrect?
Landfill number
To all the people who cannot
find the telephone number for
-the Citrus County Landfill,
which is also commonly known
:as the dump: The telephone
number is 527-7670. It is list-
ed in the phone book in the
QCivic Government table of con-
"tents defined by the turquoise
;edges on the pages. You will

states "Landfill Solid Waste,"

Made in China
Can somebody explain to me
why everything is made in
China? ... Whatever happened
*to the good old United States.
I'm sick and tired. Everything
is made in China, and you
know what? It's crap.
Vegas or VFWs
Hey, who needs to go to
Vegas to gamble when all you
have to do is go to the VFWs in
Hernando or Floral City and
win a pocketful of money if
you're lucky? What happened to
your no gambling iaws, sheriff?
Get these home.wrecking,

chines out of our county. Oh,
incidentally, if by some chance
these cash machines are now
legal, I would like to apologize
to all parties involved, but I cer-
tainly would like the Chronicle
to advise us of this change.
Upward Bound
This is in regard to the per-
son who called Sound Off
about no pictures of Upward
Bound. I know, it's pretty sad
when they can put garbage in
the newspaper, but we can't
put our children's pictures in
there. ... They stood up there
for 15 or 20 minutes to have
their picture taken and you
know what? My child was not
recognized, either, and I think
this is a disgrace. We can put
garbage in the newspaper, but
we can't put children that have
really done well. There were a
lot of kids at that program and
a lot of kids were not recog-
nized by the Citrus County
Chronicle. You guys did a very
poor job.

Close encounter
I'm calling about the Sound
Off with the "Sky flash" that
was today in the paper. I live in
Beverly Hills and saw it, also;
so did my best friend in Inver-
ness. She was afraid to men-
tion it in case people thought
she was, cuckoo. I called my
son in Homosassa to see if he
could see it. He didn't. I'm
curious what it was and wanted
an explanation. You can't erase
what you're seeing, just so peo-
ple don't think you are weird.
The next morning when I
checked my e-mail, my son
wanted to see if I'm still here
or I was beamed up.
Alcohol sales
This is in response to the
Crystal River City Council, about
limiting alcohol sales 'til mid-
night. Boy, that's going to do a
whole lot of good when they can
go to Ozello Road Circle K or
they could just drive out of city
limits and buy it. Why doesn't
the city council get with the pro-
gram and worry about the good


stuff that they can do for the
city instead of this stupid stuff. I
mean it's just a waste of time.
The taxpayers are paying them
for wasting our time.

Phoning for funds
I just got a call from the
paramedics of Citrus County
trying to solicit donations for
their group, and I'm wondering
if that's not a private company
that's under the administration
of the county. Does anybody
know anything about this? Is it'
a charitable organization that
we should have to give to?
Top 1 percent
You have to admire liberals.
They don't mind rewriting histo-
ry to fit their cause. In today's
paper, Monday, a lady wrote in
about Ronald Reagan raising the
Social Security tax and then not
keeping the money in the lock-
box. There was no lockbox when
Reagan was president because
Lyndon Johnson and the
Democrats took the Social
Security money and put it in the


Behind the walls, the floors, and inside the ceilings of offices, schools,
hospitals, homes and other facilities there may be mold spores multiplying,
and contaminating surfaces and air systems.
HEALTH COMPROMISED Ongoing sinus infections, asthma, respiratory
irritations and recurring skin rashes are some of the ways our health is put at risk
when we're exposed to unsanitary indoor environments. Absenteeism. Productivity
losses, costly structural repairs or lawsuits are a risk of destructive contaminants.
Air quality is impossible to diagnose without proper investigation, equipment,
and expertise. Often you can't see, smell or otherwise tell if anything has
compromised indoor air quality.
EFFICIENT. EFFECTIVE & ECONOMICAL Protection from these
microscopic threats doesn't have to be expensive, time-consuming or intrusive.
Inspections and treatment can be implemented with minimal disruption to the
home or facility, depending on the level of contamination.
DETECTION Samples are collected by certified mold investigation specialists
and examined by a third party laboratory for identification and analysis of signs of
mold propagation.
RItMEDIATION. POST TREATMENT TESTING After remediation and
treatment, post decontamination verification tests are conducted to confirm that
the decontamination process was successful.

general fund to be spent as they
well pleased. The entire time
Reagan was president, the Dem-
ocrats controlled the House and
the Senate - that's who spends
your money. The president does-
n't spend any money. It has to
be approved by the Congress.
Isn't it amazing? Then this indi-
vidual was so naive. She thinks
the money went to give the top
1 percent tax breaks. The top 1
percent don't pay tax because,
after all, John Kerry and his wife
made $5.1 million and only
paid 12 percent. Believe me,
I'm at middle income and I'd
sign up to pay 12 percent right
now, but I don't have expensive
tax returns. So don't live in the
illusion that the top 1 percent
pays their taxes.

Flying fruitcakes
Living down here in Florida, it
doesn't matter if you're a good

n't matter what kind of driver
you are because there's always
some fruitcake that's going to
run into you running a stop

It's totally stressed out when
you have to be on the road
down here all the time. You
know the funny thing about it?
These people down here, they
run right through the stop sign
and then when you blow the

when you blow the horn at
them, like you're doing some-
thing wrong. I don't know what
kind of mentality or where they

happened today over there in

right through the stop sign. I
slammed the brakes on ... He
had no expression on his face.

Good cause
To answer Sound Off com-
plaints in today's Chronicle
paper, which is March 1, about
the Harley event on Feb. 24
and the motorcycles: If people
would read the paper, the event
was for a very good cause -
Jessica Lunsford, whom God
took too soon. Cyclists are real-
ly good people. Other people
should try to help out at an
event like this, not complain all
the time.
One day only
This is in response to a March
1 Sound Off, "Median parking."
To the person who wrote in that
they need to examine why the
motorcycles were parked in the
median: There was a fundrais-
ing event for Jessica Lunsford.
There were more than 5,000
bikers from different counties
participating. The parking in the
median was sanctioned by the
sheriff's (office) for that day
only, between those particular
hours that they showed up at
the Harley-Davidson shop. If
you're going to criticize parking
in medians for fundraisers such
as that, you ought to be
ashamed of yourself. It was to a
good cause and I applaud the


sheriff's (office) for taking care
of the traffic situation and
allowing, temporarily, those bik-
ers to park in the medians so
they could participate in that
function.
Read newspaper
I'm calling in regards to the
people writing in about the
Harley shop having that big
event on Saturday, Feb. 24.
They should know that
that was for Jessica
Lunsford, who was kid-
napped and murdered
and, subsequently, you
know, her poor father,
you know, founding a j
bike run for her memo- S
ry. They wouldn't need
to worry about parking CA.L
in the median and 563"
everything else. I do
believe that if they
would read the newspaper, they
would have known what the
cause was for and, hopefully,
they wouldn't be writing about
worrying about motorcycles
parked in the median and, you
know, how there was a lot of
traffic on (U.S.) 19 for one day
for a good cause, for an event
that was in memory of some-
one's daughter who was mur-
dered, a 9-year-old child. I


I


guess they can call Sound Off,
but maybe they didn't read the
newspaper to see what the
cause was. Hopefully, if they
would have, they wouldn't have
put these kind of remarks in
the newspaper about it.
Passing laws
I read the Sound Off this
morning about people com-
plaining about the run for
Jessica Lunsford. I
think it's totally ridicu-
lous. These old people
in this county need to
realize what this was
for. It was a good
cause. That little girl
was murdered here in
"*** our county. We're try-
ing to get laws passed
0579 and they're complain-
ing about noise ... I
think the Chronicle
should run a big write-up about
this thing. I think it's totally,
totally ridiculous.
Editor's note: See the Sunday,
Feb. 25 edition for "Jessie's rid-
ers." It is a big write-up.
Show sorrow
It's March 1, Thursday. I'm
reading Sound Off regarding
the motorcycles over at Harley
the other day. I want to tell


- - - - - - - - - - - - -


people complaining about it to
read the front page, as well as
Sound Off, because that was a
memorial for Jessica Lunsford.
They need to get a life and
read and have some sorrow.
Show support
... The motorcycles and the
noise from the support we
were giving for a child from our
county who had been hurt was
a wonderful thing. To the peo-
ple that were annoyed by it:
Get over it. It had nothing to do
with you. It had to do with sup-
porting one of our own. We are
from Citrus County and we
were proud that so many peo-
ple were involved. I'm not a
motorcycle person myself and
I'm proud that that many peo-
ple supported Jessica, who was
from Citrus County and was
treated badly....

Slap on wrists
I'm reading Friday morning's
paper about this teenager that
got abused by some of her girl-
friends, and the mother was
home that was hosting the
sleepover party. Now why isn't
the mother charged for some
kind of a crime? And put those
girls in jail where they can
learn-a lesson. Never mind a
slap on the wrists. Never mind
turning them back to their par-
ents. This is disgusting the way
these teenagers get away with
something wrong in this town.
Jail the parents
This incident where
teenagers in high school ...
girls, as well as guys, seem to
get big status out of fighting
and do some fights, like that
girl in Inverness that was


coerced into a fight. That is
totally ridiculous. Where are
the parents of these kids?
These people take no respons-i
ability for raising their children.
They let them go out and about
and learn from the street. Then
they wonder why their kids are
in jail or killed someday
because they get into more
serious crimes. I think the
biggest thing we can do in this'
community is wake the parents
up and make the parents
responsible and liable for any-
thing that happens, not the
children. Arresting the children
is one thing. Putting them in
house arrest is another thing.'
Putting the parents in jail for
six months, that might wake a.
few people up. It's about time '
the judicial system in this "
county and state wake up and
realize this is 2007, not 1777.

Citrus County's Home
>Delivered Meals Program, op-

:the Citrus County Community
Support Services, has been
-delivering meals to the home-
bound since 1979. This much-
needed program has grown from
serving 13 clients at its inception
to now providing more than 400
meals on a daily basis.
An additional benefit of this
program continues to be the per-
sonal contact and support
received through the local vol-
unteers and staff. The dedicated
volunteers who deliver the
meals also provide a support sys-
tem and a daily check on each
client's well-being. This short
visit is often the highlight of an
isolated and lonely man or
woman's day.
But the need has outgrown the
funding. County officials have
reported that there is a waiting

makes you want to gag.
We really don't like that
kind of attitude ...

list, now at 32, for those who
qualify for this service, but the
funds are not there to provide
the meals.
The program is funded by an
Older Americans Act grant,
which is matched 10 percent to
20 percent with
local funds from the
SUE: county commission.
The giant pays for
nd meals the home-delivered

ION: Go to teers who use their

ut to 's receive 44 cents per

ment, many of them
returning this stipend back to
the program.
The grant has not been
increased in four years and can
no longer feed the need of this
community's homebound who
are in need of food. So, Commun-
ity Support Services is rallying
the troops and focusing on addi-
tional fundraisers and appeals
for donations from individuals,
businesses and civic groups. An
example of the effort is
Tuesday's Spring Fling dance at
the Citrus Springs Community
Center. The big band sounds of
Center Stage are hoped to draw
300 or more to the event, with
tickets at $12 each. For ticket
information, call 527-5957.
The Home Delivered Meals
Program has proven its worth.
The processes are in place and
the volunteers are ready and
willing. But the dollars must be
found to provide for those who
are in need of this service.

eggs out in the yard didn't die. I
bought this over-the-counter flea
stuff ... and put it on my cat. Well,
my cat is now dead. I had
to have it put to sleep. The
toxins and poisons that
they put in this stuff kills
your animal. So this is for
anybody out there who has
fleas. Do not buy any kind
of flea control from any-
body unless its something
from your local veterinari-
an. I have one dead cat
now ... Thanks to
J0579 Inverness Animal Hospital,
who saved my other cat.
But the one I had to put
down because the toxins and poi-
sons got into her blood and got her
very sick and shut down her organs.
So please ask your veterinarian
before you put anything on your ani-
mals.
Crowded signs
I would like to comment on the
new sidewalk that's on the east side
of (U.S.) 19 in Crystal River
between Kash 'n Karry shopping
center and Cody's Restaurant. My
car measures it a about a half a
mile. In that half a mile on the side-
walk, there are 52 signs that were
installed. Do we really need 52
signs on a sidewalk? I don't know
and I'm looking forward to getting
another 50 or 60 on the west side
of the highway the next time they're
done. Is this part of the beautifica-
tion process or is this just govern-
ment at work? Don't know, do you?

says Sharpton is guilty of
"overreaction" about her
father. "In spite of being a
segregationist, he did many
.-itt wonderful things for black
people," she said.
- i Too bad those wonderful
things did not include
renouncing his hateful
views or publicly acknowl-
edging his black daughter.
d Pitts William Faulkner was
IER right: "The past is not dead.
DES It's not even past."
It's a truth from which
many of us instinctively
recoil where slavery, is concerned. We
reject anything that threatens to bring
us in too close or make too plain the
connections between then and now,
that and this.
A man asked me just the other day
how much longer I intend to make
"excuses" for the problems of black
kids. Racial oppression is in the past,
he said. We've been pumping money
into "minority programs" for more
than 40 years, he said. Where's the
progress, he said.
And I'm thinking to myself, Lord,
give me strength.
Surely I have not been derelict in
pointing out the failures of and the
need for the black community to be
active and proactive in its own salva-
tion. But if it's true that black folk have
work to do, it's also true that the need
for that work did not spring from
nowhere but, rather, from a 350-year
epoch of physical and - this is impor-
tant - emotional brutalization. And

Zero-based budget
As a concerned taxpayer and resi-
dent of Citrus County, I was surprised
and mystified at Commissioner Gary
Bartell's guest column in the St
Petersburg Times (Feb. 26).. He has
attempted to take credit for suggest-
ing implementation of the zero-based
budget process.
This is and will be a process to save
taxpayers money, improve services,
increase restraint in budgets and cost
increases.
The person and the group that has
been advocating and pushing for a
zero-based budget process for several
years - and I emphasize several
years - is Morris Harvey and his Fis-
cal Watch Committee that is a division
of the Citrus County Council. Bartell
should have noted that in his column.
Taxpayers in Citrus County should
be aware that Harvey is the recog-
nized ombudsman for the citizens of
Citrus County. He has always advocat-
ed fiscal restraint and savings in all
Citrus County departments.
Commissioners Joyce Valentino and
Vicki Phillips have been very helpful
to the Fiscal Watch Committee. They
recognized the value of zero-based
budgeting long ago.

Vote no building
My last letter to the editor led to
responses from members of Cypress
Village Property Owners Association.
I met with one member and asked
questions regarding two projects.
* Cypress Boulevard. Each lot
owner was assessed $18 to accumu-
late $88,000 for sod, sprinklers, trees
and plants. This is county property
and we do not own it. When asked:
"Did you collect $18 from all lot and
home owners?" the answer was "No."

"Would the $88,000 be enough for the
project?" "No." "What is the hold-
up?" "County permits." "What about
uncollected assessment fees?" "We
are placing liens on lot and home
owners who did not pay,"
I did not find out how many did not
pay.
* New building at entrance. The
actual cost is $481,000. Each lot and
home owner will be assessed if
passed. This cost does not make
sense. Go to the media wall, and you
will see what I mean. If you do not go
to look this over, the only time you
will see this information is when they
mail it with the ballot to vote on it,
allowing no time for questions.
CVPOA met Feb. 19, but only 35 out
of more than 4,000 owners attended.
Owners have received their ballot
and proxy package in the mail. The
deadline for returning it by mail is
March 24, or owners can hand it in


some of us are impatient that 40 years
of mostly half-hearted attempts at a
remedy have not made things hunky
dory? Oh, please.
Of course, by this point, maybe he
has stopped listening. Maybe you have,
too. Mention of that 350 years tends to
have that effect
Hence the ambivalence - "nervous
chuckles," reported the Orlando
Sentinel of a visit to Thurmond's home-
town - that greeted last week's news
in some quarters. Small wonder. It
removed the shield of abstract. It put a
face on the thing. And the danger is
that if we can imagine that face, we can
imagine others.
Condoleezza Rice purchased as
breeding stock
Oprah Winfrey raped on a nightly
basis.
Will Smith, his back split open by a
whip.
Sen. Barack Obama living with the
same rights under the law, the same
expectation of dignity, as a horse or a
chair.
We spend a lot of time running from
this. But we never escape. That's the
lesson of Sharpton's experience, the
reason for nervous chuckles and
ambivalent shrugs. It's an unwelcome
reminder that some stains don't wash
out; some dead things do not rest.
And we live in the presence of the
past

between 6 and 6:45 p.m. the night of
the annual meeting at 7 p.m. March 28
at the Elks Club.
If the vote passes and lot owners
who did not pay last time do not pay
again, where will the money come
from to pay the mortgage?
What makes CVPOA think this is
going to work?
Will they dig deeper into our pock-
ets for the difference of the assess-
ments they could not collect? If you
add up all the figures at the media
wall, they will make a profit on the
assessment if everyone pays.
If the county passes the new impact
fee, will this add $100,000 or more to
the project?
Go to the meeting and ask ques-
tions. Vote no build.

Juvenile injustice
"One of the greatest obstacles to
reversing violent crime across the
state is fixing a broken juvenile jus-
tice system..." ('Juvenile justice sys-
tem key to reversing violent crime,"
Associated Press, Jan. 23, Chronicle).
What about the parents of these
juvenile offenders? Not only have we
lost our children to the system, but
some of us have also fallen victim to
domestic violence, loss of work from
court and related appointments, plus
we pay for cost of care and fines.
Probation is another joke. The par-
ents are really on probation.
Juveniles skate! Parents pay for all
costs. Parents lose time off work.
Even the judge points the finger at
the parents.
I am mourning the loss of my
daughter to this broken system.

somewhere, the gods
of irony are laughing.
Can you blame
them? Last week came
news that ancestry com, a
genealogical Web site, had
documented a startling link
between two very unalike
men. It turns out an ances-
tor of the late South
Carolina Sen. Strom
Thurmond once owned an Leonai
ancestor of the Rev. Al OTH
Sharpton. Two icons of 20th- VOI
century racial politics -
the one a strident foe of
integration, the other regarded by
some as a boogeyman of racial activism
- linked by ownership.
Somewhere, the gods are amused.
Sharpton is not. He has pronounced
himself torn by conflicting emotion:
humiliation, anger, pride, and, above
all, shock
The reaction from Thurmond's fami-
ly, meanwhile, has been characterized
by that curious shrug of shoulders, that
ambivalence and eagerness to change
the subject, one often finds in white
people when slavery gets personal.
"I don't feel one way or the other,"
Thurmond's 74-year-old niece, Doris
Strom Costner, told the Washington
Post
"I have no comment," Paul
Thurmond, the senator's youngest son,
told the New York Daily News.
And then there's Essie Mae
Washington-Williams, product of a liai-
son Thurmond had with a 16-year-old

Wrong information
Sen. Hillary Clinton has yet
to say that her vote for the war
was a mistake, although she
has said that given what she
knows now, she would not have
voted for the war. To me, that's
as good as saying, "My vote was
a mistake." What she knows
now, what we all know now, is
that there was both misinfor-
mation presented to Congress
and good information sup-
pressed from Congress.
However, if one were to read
her Oct 10, 2002, Senate floor
speech given before the joint
Congressional resolution on
Iraq, one could see that no
apology is necessary
Here are some excerpts:
"... Even though the resolu-
tion before the Senate is not as
strong as I would like in requir-
ing the diplomatic route first
and placing highest priority on
a simple, clear requirement for
unlimited inspections, I will
take the president at his word
that he will try hard to pass a
U.N. resolution and will seek
to avoid war, if at all possible.
"... I want to insure that
Saddam Hussein makes no
mistake about our national
- unity and for our support for
the president's efforts to wage
America's war against terror-
ists and weapons of mass
destruction.... I want the men
and women in our Armed
Forces to know that if they
should be called upon to act
against Iraq, our country will
stand resolutely behind them.
"So it is with conviction that
I support this resolution as
being in the best interest of our
nation. A vote for it is not a
vote to rush to war; it is a vote
that puts awesome responsibil-
ity in the hands of our presi-
dent and we say to him - use
these powers wisely and as a
last resort"
Clinton was not looking for
war. Her first choice was the
diplomatic route, but she want-
ed all to know that the United
States stood united against the
evils of terrorism and trusted
the president to "use these
powers wisely and as a last
resort"

er and point fingers at those
who want to save the lives of as
many American G.I.s as possi-
ble. He fought in the last good
war America fought Then they
knew the reason for the war
and what victory looked like.
It's real easy to fight and win
a war when the enemy wears a
uniform with a big red bulls-
eye or swastika target on it
You knew the cities, factories,
ships and planes of the enemy,
we knew who to shoot, when to
shoot, what to shoot Now, no
such luck
Not so in Vietnam nor this
civil war in Iraq. Could Mr.
Ryan tell a Sunni from a
Shiite? An Iraqi from a Kurd?
A woman from a man, if they're
wearing a burqa? How would
he handle spending a day talk-
ing to a civilian and the next
day have that same civilian sig-
naling to snipers the location
of his squad? No. This is a very
different war then the one he
served in.
This is not a "war" we can
win; there is no enemy as he
understands it in Iraq. There
are only individuals that one
day may like you, the next day
hate you and the third day like
you again; if he hasn't blown
himself and countless others to
bits the day before.
Terrorists are individuals or
small groups of individuals and
the FBI, CIA and local police
are far better equipped to deal
with individuals in their di-
verse locations then any stand-
ing army could ever be.

Remembering Chester
Who says a pet isn't a mem-
ber of the family?
About 10 years ago, I adopted
a large, dark gray cat (or he
adopted me) from the Citrus
County Animal Shelter. We
eyed each other through the
cages, and when I opened it, he
came to check me out, and by
mutual agreement, Chester
became part of our family
Through the years, Dr
Gwynneth Hall and the staff of
Suncoast Animal Clinic in
Homosassa also have become
r part of our family, providing
loving, professional care to
Chester.
Recently, the time came that
all pet owners dread. Chester's
quality of life had deteriorated

Iraq's oil
For four years, President
Bush has insisted that the war
in Iraq was not for its oil. How-
ever, recently in his speeches,
President Bush has been urg-
ing the Iraqi Parliament to
pass the oil law. Details of that
law have finally come out
According to the New York
Daily News, in a Feb. 21 arti-
cle, the proposed law does not
open the Iraqi oil and gas to
foreign exploration and invest-
ment, as was expected. Instead,
the proposed law sets up a
Federal Oil and Gas Council
that would control Iraq's oil
reserves. Members of the coun-
cil would consist of executives
from Chevron, ExxonMobil,
British Petroleum, and other
western oil giants. The pro-
posed law would grant the Oil
Council absolute power over
Iraqi oil.
In most countries, oil is con-
trolled by national oil compa-
nies that may enter into agree-
ments with foreign investors.
Antonia Juhasz of an oil
industry watchdog group said:
"Iraq's economic security and
development will be thrown
into question with this law. It's
a radical departure, not only
from Iraq's existing structure,
but from how oil is managed in
most of the world today"
Before we invaded Iraq,
Hussein had signed contracts
with France, China, Russia,
Korea, Italy and Spain to de-
velop the Iraqi oil fields once
sanctions were lifted. The
American and British compa-
nies were shut out due to 10
years of U.S. sanctions.
So now the Oily Truth is out
We invaded and broke Iraq to
enrich US corporations.
Daily, U.S. troops and Iraqi
civilians die for corporate
greed with the cooperation of
this administration.

Forces enter Sadr City


Nation BRIEFS


Troops go into Shiite

stronghold in sweep

* Associated Press

BAGHDAD, Iraq - U.S. and Iraqi
troops poured into Baghdad's main
Shiite militia stronghold Sunday,
encountering no resistance in the
one-time Sadr City combat zones but
testing the Shiites' commitment to the
U.S.-promoted campaign to drive mil-
itants from the capital.
Outside Baghdad, U.S. soldiers
described a raid last week that uncov-
ered a suspected Sunni "torture site"
and the rescue of two Iraqi captives,
who apparently had been spared
immediate execution because the
militants' video camera broke and
they wanted to film the killing.
The quiet but dramatic advance in
Sadr City - involving nearly 1,200
U.S. and Iraqi forces who didn't fire a
shot - marked one of the most signif-
icant developments in the security
clampdown in Baghdad since it took
effect nearly three weeks ago.
But it only received the green light
after drawn-out talks between U.S.
commanders and political allies of
radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr
and his powerful Mahdi Army. Both
sides are watching each other for any
wrong moves on the same streets
where they battled in the past, includ-
ing intense urban warfare in 2004.
Al-Sadr's militiamen lowered their
profile under intense government
pressure to give the security opera-
tion a chance to root out both Sunni
and Shiite extremists. U.S. military
leaders, however, must walk a fine
line as part of the tacit truce. They are
seeking suspected Shiite death
squads leaders, but must keep from
squeezing al-Sadr's militia too hard -
and risk collapsing the entire drive to


Gang's



clout



grows

Associated Press

BUENA PARK, Calif - The
white supremacist gang Public
Enemy No. 1 began two decades
ago as a group of teenage punk-
rock fans from upper-middle
class bedroom communities in
Southern California.
Now, the violent gang that
deals in drugs, guns and identity
theft is gaining clout across the
West after forging an alliance
with the notorious Aryan
Brotherhood, authorities say.
Police say the gang has com-
piled a "hit list" targeting five
officers and a gang prosecutor -
a sign of just how brazen Public
Enemy has become.
"They make police officers
very, very nervous," said Cpl.
Nate Booth, a gang detective
with the Buena Park Police
Department in Orange County.
Law enforcement officials
trace the gang's rise to shifts in
the power structure inside pris-
ons.
The Aryan Brotherhood has
long been the dominant white
supremacist gang behind bars,
with the Nazi Low Riders acting
as its foot soldiers on the outside
for drug dealing and identity
theft
In 2000, officials reclassified
the Low Riders as a prison-
based gang and began sending
its members to solitary confine-
ment as soon as they were

Gang's influence
crosses state lines
The gang Public Enemy No. 1 began
in Long Beach, Calif., in the 1980s,
before moving to Orange County. In
the past few years, authorities have
seen recruiting and found gang
members outside the county.

imprisoned.
The crackdown hurt the
gang's ability to interact with the
Aryan Brotherhood, which
turned to Public Enemy, author-
ities say. The alliance was
cemented in 2005 when Donald
Reed "Popeye" Mazza, an
alleged leader of Public Enemy,
was inducted into the Aryan
Brotherhood.
The pact has increased Public
Enemy's wealth and recruiting
power, said Steve Slaten, a spe-
cial agent for the California
Department of Corrections.
In the past three years, its
ranks have doubled to at least
400, but authorities suspect
there could be hundreds of other
members operating under the
radar. They said heavy recruit-
ing is taking place throughout
California and Arizona, and
members have been picked up
by police in Nevada and Idaho.


"They move around. We find
them everywhere," said Lowell
Smith of the Orange County
Probation Department
The gang traces its roots to the
punk rock subculture in Long
Beach in the 1980s. It soon shift-
ed its base to nearby Orange
County and in the 1990s began
recruiting what police call
"bored latchkey kids" - white
teenagers from upper-middle
class neighborhoods.
Public Enemy is now involved
in identity theft. Booth said the
gang has gone from swiping per-
sonal information from mailbox-
es and trash to stealing entire
credit profiles with the help of
girlfriends and wives who take
jobs at banks, mortgage compa-
nies and even state motor vehi-
cle departments.
Money from those operations
is used to fuel its methampheta-
mine business, he said.


Last week, U.S. and Iraqi forces
began pinpoint raids into Sadr City
seeking suspected leaders of Shiite
death squads blamed for thousands of
execution-style slaying of Sunni
rivals in recent years.
Since Friday, military planners
have worked inside a Sadr City police
station in apparent preparations to
create a permanent outpost, police
said.


Unpaid federal taxes amount

to $2,680 per household


Associated Press


WASHINGTON - Think of
the uses of $300 billion, the
annual gap between what tax-
payers owe and what they pay.
It would more than cover the
federal deficit for a year or the
extra money President Bush
wants in 2007 and 2008 for Iraq
and Afghanistan.
It would pay for the $125 bil-
lion that Congress has agreed
to spend on Hurricane Katrina
relief, with enough left for
three years worth of federal
education programs.
Such are the dreams of law-
makers pressing the Internal
Revenue Service to get more
aggressive about reducing
what is known throughout
Washington as "the tax gap."
Skeptics, however, scoff at
the notion there is a pot of gold
waiting to be claimed. They say
it is an illusion as long as noth-
ing is done about the hopeless-
ly complicated tax system.
An IRS study last year con-
cluded that the tax gap in 2001
was $345 billion. Of that, $197
billion came from underre-
porting on individual income
tax returns and $88 billion
from underreporting by corpo-
rations and the self-employed.
The rest came from those not
filing or not paying the proper
amount.
That gap narrowed to $290
billion after enforcement
efforts and late payments were
factored in. Still, that left the
government collecting only 86
percent of the more than $2
trillion it was owed in 2001.
That translated into a "sur-
tax" of about $2,680 per house-


Billions owed

hold in 2001, the national tax-
payer advocate said at a recent
hearing of the House Budget
Committee. "That is an extra-
ordinary burden to ask our
nation's compliant taxpayers to
bear every year," Nina E. Olson
said.
"It's not just a budgetary
problem," the committee
chairman, Rep. John Spratt, D-
S.C., said at the hearing. "It
raises fundamental issues of
moral fairness."

Clintons, Obama pay homage to civil rights activists


Associated Press


SELMA, Ala. - Presidential candi-
dates Barack Obama and Hillary
Clinton crossed campaign paths for the
first time Sunday as they paid homage
to civil rights activists who they said
helped give them the chance to break
barriers to the White House.
The two candidates and former
President Clinton, making his first
appearance with his wife since her
campaign began, linked arms with


activists who 42 years ago were
attacked by police with billyclubs dur-
ing a peaceful voting rights march.
"Bloody Sunday" shocked the nation
and helped bring attention to the racist
voting practices that kept blacks from
the polls.
"I'm here because somebody
marched for our freedom," Obama, who
would become the first black president,
said from the Brown Chapel AME
Church where the march began on
March 7, 1965. "I'm here because you all


sacrificed for me. I stand on the shoul-
ders of giants."
Not to be outdone in the hunt for
black votes, Hillary Clinton also spoke
in Selma at a church three blocks away
and brought a secret weapon - her
husband. Three days before the march
anniversary, her campaign announced
that the former president, who is so
popular among blacks, would accompa-
ny her for his induction into Selma's
Voting Rights Hall of Fame.
Sen. Clinton said the Voting Rights


Act and the Selma march made possi-
ble her presidential campaign, as well
as those of Obama and New Mexico
Gov. Bill Richardson, who would be the
first Hispanic to occupy the Oval Office.
'After all the hard work getting rid of
literacy tests and poll taxes, we've got to
stay awake because we've got a march
to continue," Clinton said in a speech
interrupted numerous times by
applause and shouts of approval. "How
can we rest while poverty and inequali-
ty continue to rise?"


Suspect in slaying
arrested in Michigan
MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. -
A man suspected of killing and
dismembering his wife was cap-
tured Sunday as he fled from
searchers through the snow in a
wooded area of northern
Michigan, police said.
Stephen Grant had been the
subject of a manhunt since po-
lice discovered what they be-
lieve to be the torso and other
body parts of his wife, Tara Lynn
Grant, in and around the cou-
ple's house in a suburb of
Detroit.
Grant was arrested in Bliss
Township in northern Michigan,
some 225 miles from his home,
after an air and ground search
by local, state and federal agen-
cies, according to the Emmet

China plans increase
in military spending
BEIJING - China announced
Sunday that it will increase mili-
tary spending at a sharply high-
er rate this year, budgeting a
rise of nearly 18 percent, and a
senior U.S. official immediately
called for clarity on the planned
* expenditures.
China's declared military ex-

to $44.94 billion.
According to Pentagon esti-
mates, that declared total repre-
sents about a third of actual mili-
tary spending if equipment pur-
chases are taken into account.
But even that would amount to
only a fraction of the U.S. mili-
tary budget, which rose to about
$623 billion for fiscal 2008.

Florida isfirst SEC

team to win 6

straight over Wildcats

Associated Press
GAINESVILLE - Joakim Noah
was thumping his chest, screaming at
the top of lungs and pumping up
teammates with his hustle and tena-
cious defense.
Noah was back to his usual self -
and so was Florida.


Noah broke out of a slump with 17
points and 10 rebounds, played with
the kind of passion missing in recent
games and helped the fifth-ranked
Gators rebound from consecutive
losses and make history with an 85-72
victory against Kentucky on Sunday.
Florida became the first
Southeastern Conference team to win
six in a row against the Wildcats. Only
Notre Dame has won seven straight
against the storied program.
"We've come a long way," said cen-
ter Al Horford, who added 14 points
and 10 boards. "We're all about setting
records, and that's what we did."
It started with Noah, the 6-foot-10


son of tennis star Yannick Noah.
Noah - who had his father, mother,
two sisters and brother on hand for
what might have been his last home
game - had scored 18 points the last
three games and was admittedly play-
ing without his usual energy. He had
plenty of it against the "Kitty Cats,"
the nickname Noah playfully gave
Kentucky (20-10, 9-7) this week.

the good that we've gone through, you
have to know how to deal with some
bad," Noah said. "We knew that it

RUN TO THE ROSES

In this photo provided by Benoit Photo, Great Hunter, ridden by jockey Corey Nakatani, hits the head of the stretch and goes on to win the Grade II,
$200,000 Robert B. Lewis Stakes horse race Saturday at Santa Anita in Arcadia, Calif.

Great Hunter moves atop Run to the Roses Top 10 list


Associated Press


After a great day at the racetrack,
trainers Doug O'Neill and Todd
Pletcher find themselves with the
leading contenders for the
Kentucky Derby just two months
away.
On the West Coast, O'Neill sent
out Great Hunter to an impressive
1�-length victory in Saturday's
Robert B. Lewis Stakes at Santa
Anita. The colt's winning 3-year-old
debut moved him atop this week's
Associated Press' Run to the Roses
Top 10 list
Pletcher, meanwhile, had win-
ners galore at Gulfstream Park in
Florida. Scat Daddy's nose victory


over Stormello in the Fountain of
Youth Stakes moved the colt to No. 2
on the weekly list of contenders.
Nobiz Like Shobiz, the No. 1
prospect entering the weekend, was
third in the Fountain of Youth and
dropped to No. 5 this week Trainer
Barclay Tagg said the colt showed
he still has some growing up to do.
"He made the race tough on him-
self," Tagg said Sunday. "He blew
the first turn and then tried to duck
in and slipped back on the other
turn. He lost about a length each
time and he gets beat only half a
length. We have to try to get him to
come out of his shenanigans soon."
Next stop for 'Nobiz' is the Wood
Memorial at Aqueduct on April 7, a


final prep before the May 5 Derby.
So far, Pletcher and O'Neill have
owned the road to the Derby -
Pletcher trains five of this week's
Top 10 and O'Neill trains two -
with two more bucking to get in.
Pletcher won five races on
Gulfstream's card Saturday, also
taking Hutcheson Stakes with King
of the Roxy, who moves onto the
Derby trail at No. 9.
Looking for his first Derby win,
Pletcher's other Top-10 horses are
Ravel (No. 6) Circular Quay (No. 8)
and Any Given Saturday (No. 10).
O'Neill, looking for his first Derby
starter, also trains Notional (No. 7),
and two rising stars in Liquidity and
Cobalt Blue. He capped his day by


saddling Lava Man to a second
straight victory in the Santa Anita
Handicap.
Merv Griffin owns Cobalt Blue,
and J. Paul Reddam owns O'Neill's
three other Derby prospects.
"We don't really know which one
is the best one yet, which is kind of
exciting," Reddam said.
Two important Derby preps are
set for Saturday - the Louisiana
Derby at the Fair Grounds and the
Gotham Stakes at Aqueduct.
Circular Quay and Liquidity are set
for the 1 1/16-mile Louisiana Derby.
New in this week's Top 10 are
Stormello and King of the Roxy.

takes win



in Mexico

Associated Press
MEXICO CITY - Juan Pablo
Montoya spun teammate Scott Pruett
to take the lead with eight laps left,
then held off Denny Hamlin to win
the Busch Series race on Sunday for
his first NASCAR victory.
Montoya, the Colombian star who
jumped from Formula One to
NASCAR late last season, recovered
from a bad pit stop to aggressively
move from .19th to first, taking the
lead when he sent Pruett's car spin-
ning on the 72nd lap of the Telcel-
Motorola 200.
"I'm very sorry about what hap-
pened with Scott," Montoya said. "I
thought he saw me and when he came
across I had no room to go."
Montoya said he would personally
apologize to Pruett
"Of all the people to take out--your
teammate," Pruett said. "That was
just lowdown, nasty, dirty driving."
Hamlin, right behind the two Chip
Ganassi Racing drivers at the time,
said it was a tough call.
"I wouldn't call it dirty driving, but
it was a bit aggressive," Hamlin said.
"Juan had the fastest car and he
would have taken the lead sooner or
later. He was overzealous."
Hamlin, the winner last year, pres-
sured Montoya in the closing laps, but
couldn't pass on the 2.518-mile
Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez
road course's s-curves.

Weekley misses chance to win suspended Honda Classic


Associated Press


Associated Press
Boo Weekley follows through after teeing off on the seventh hole during the final
round of the Honda Classic golf tournament Sunday in Palm Beach Gardens.
Weekley finished in a four-way tie with Jose Coceres, Mark Wilson, and Camilo
Villegas and will continue their playoff on Monday.


PALM BEACH GARDENS - Only 3
feet separated Boo Weekley from
everything he's spent the last decade
chasing. A PGA Tour victory, the big
winner's check, a two-year exemp-
tion, all of them a mere short putt
away.
He pulled his putter back in the fad-
ing light on the 72nd hole of the
Honda Classic, struck the ball and
waited for the cheers to rain down.
They never came.
And he had to wait until Monday
morning to get a shot at redeeming
himself.
Courtesy of Weekley's miss on the
final hole of regulation, he, Camilo
Villegas, Mark Wilson and Jose
Coceres - who all finished at 5-under
275 - went into a four-man playoff
Sunday night, one that they couldn't


finish before darkness fell on PGA
National.
"I was shaking," Weekley said. "I
ain't going to lie about it. I mean, I was
shaking like a leaf. ... I made a good
stroke. I just hit it way too hard."
Play was scheduled to resume at
8:30 a.m. Monday, with the foursome
on the par-4 10th hole.
With a 15-footer on the tourna-
ment's 71st hole, the par-3 17th,
Weekley took the lead and only need-
ed a par at the last to get that win and
the money. He reached the 18th green
in three shots, tipping his cap as he
walked up to acknowledge the long,
loud serenade of "Boo."
The gallery made a much different
sound moments later, when his putt
slid past the left edge.
"You've got to feel for Boo," Villegas
said. "But it's golf Those things happen."
Each player made par at the par-5


18th, the first playoff hole. Wilson's
was spectacular, coming after he
drove his tee shot into the mud and
scrambling to the green before mak-
ing a 30-foot putt to keep him in con-
tention.
Wilson, 0-for-110 in tour events, also
made a 45-footer to save par at the
16th hole - which, obviously, kept his
hopes afloat
And Coceres - who lost a playoff to
Fred Funk in Mexico at last week's
tour stop, the Mayakoba Golf Classic
- had a birdie try that would have
ended the tournament hit the lip and
roll away
"I'm old. I'm 43," said Coceres, who
is 1-1 in playoffs on tour, and is the
only member of the final foursome
here to go to extra holes in a tour
event "I couldn't see."

Ain the closing seconds of No. 8
:North Carolina's 86-72 victory
:over 14th-ranked Duke on
*Sunday, clinching the top seed
.in the Atlantic Coast

SSenior Reyshawn Terry
added 15 points in his final
home game for the Tar Heels
(25-6, 11-5), who swept the regu-
lar-season series with the Blue
Devils for the first time in 11
years, avoided their first three-
game slide under Roy Williams
and gave the homespun coach
his 100th victory at his alma
mater.
But perhaps the lasting
image of the latest renewal of
college basketball's most
intense rivalry will be
Hansbrough's bloodied face.
He leaped for a layup with 14.5
seconds left, but after the ball
left his hand he was struck in
the face by Gerald Henderson's

Hansbrough crumpled to the
ground, his nose bleeding pro-

his face, and he was restrained
from the Duke players as he

help Creighton upset No. 11
Southern Illinois 67-61 Sunday in
the championship game of the
Missouri Valley Conference tourna-
ment, earning the Bluejays their
seventh NCAA tournament appear-
ance in nine years.
Nate Funk added 19 points and
four assists and Nick Porter had 15
points and six assists for the sec-
ond-seeded Bluejays (22-10), who
won the conference tournament for
the sixth time in nine seasons.
Jamaal Tatum had 21 points for


Southern Illinois (27-6), which has
won the regular-season title five
times in the last six seasons but
has won only one tournament title
during that span. The loss ended a
13-game winning streak for the
Salukis.
The Valley's regular-season
champion hasn't won the confer-
ence tournament since 1998.
Creighton lost twice to Southern
Illinois by a total of five points dur-
ing the regular season. Sunday's
victory ended an eight-game losing


streak against the Salukis.
Tolliver earned his first double-
double in 10 games and sixth of
the season, taking advantage of a
poor game by Southern Illinois'
Randal Falker. Tolliver personally
outscored Southern Illinois 8-2 dur-
ing a 3-minute span to put the
Bluejays ahead 47-34 with 11:22 to
go.
Falker, who averages 12.8
points, scored only three on 1-for-5
shooting. He missed everything on
one free throw attempt, then barely


made it to the rim on two misses
with 2:36 to go and a chance to
narrow the gap to six. He fouled
out with 2:19 left.
Southern Illinois, which entered
the game with an RPI rating of 4,
cut the gap to five on Tatum's bas-
ket in the lane with 49 seconds to
go, but Creighton went 3-for-4 from
the line the rest of the way.
Creighton led 32-28 at halftime
and seized control in the opening
1:39 after the break, converting two
turnovers into five points while tak-
ing a 39-29 lead. Porter hit a pair of
layups during the early flurry, one
on a fast break and another off a
steal, and Dane Watts' layup off
another turnover resulted in a
three-point play and the largest
lead of the game to that point.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Edgar Sosa

Terrence Williams and David

Derrick Caracter added 13 and
Jerry Smith had 10 points for the

kind of intensity they'll likely need
in the NCAA Tournament, the
Cardinals answered every chal-
lenge the Pirates (13-16, 4-12)
threw at them.
Brian Laing scored a career-high
29 points and Eugene Harvey
added 16 points for the Pirates,
who hardly looked like a team play-
ing out the string.
Seton Hall matched Louisville


shot for shot - and nearly blow for
blow - during a physical game
that featured four technical fouls
and plenty of jawing. The Cardinals
finally put the game away with a
12-2 run over the final four minutes.
Seton Hall coach Bobby
Gonzalez's season ended a minute
earlier than his team's did. He was
ejected for picking up his second
technical foul with just under a
minute to play.
Clemson 75, No. 21 Virginia
Tech 74
BLACKSBURG, Va. - K.C.
Rivers scored 22 points, including
the decisive basket with 18 sec-
onds remaining, to lead Clemson
to a 75-74 victory Sunday over No.
21 Virginia Tech and prevent the
Hokies from capturing a share of
the Atlantic Coast Conference's
regular-season title.
Cliff Hammonds added 17 points
for the Tigers (21-9, 7-9) in the
ACC regular-season finale for both
teams.
Zabian Dowdell led Virginia Tech
(20-10, 10-6) with 25 points.
Jamon Gordon added 14 points.
Except at the very beginning, the
Hokies didn't lead until Dowdell
stole the ball and ran the length of
the court for a basket to make it
66-65 with 5:48 remaining.
Clemson took the lead back when
Hammonds hit a basket and a 3-
pointer, and led 70-66 with 3:10
left.
Dowdell then had four points as
the Hokies went on a 6-0 run to
regain the lead at 72-70. Rivers
made a 3-pointer to give Clemson
a one-point lead with 2:11 left, only
to have Dowdell respond with a.
jumper to give Virginia Tech a 74-
73 lead with 47 seconds left.
The Tigers built a 26-11 lead,
thanks to a 15-0 run, with 10:08 left
in the first half. But Dowdell then
got hot, scoring 15 points as the
Hokies narrowed the deficit to 35-
32 at halftime.

Michael Redd's 52 points for a 126-
121 overtime victory over the

for the Bulls.

Boston Celtics Brian Scalabrine, back, and Minnesota
Timberwolves Ricky Davis (31) battle for a loose ball during the


first quarter Sunday in Boston.
In the overtime, Redd hit a driving
layup with 39.7 seconds remaining to

Milwaukee's Mo Williams lost the
handle on the ball as he drove to
the basket with 17.8 seconds

remaining to put the game away.


Redd's 52 points is his second-
highest total this season, behind

Nov. 10 against Utah, also a loss. It
is the fourth-highest total in Bucks'
history. Ruben Patterson added 17

Wizards 107, Warriors 106
WASHINGTON - Gilbert
Arenas made three free throws with
one-tenth of a second remaining to
give the Washington Wizards a wild
107-106 victory over the Golden
State Warriors on Sunday.
With Washington trailing 106-104
with 2.9 seconds to go, Arenas
caught an inbounds pass near the
top of the key and drove to the bas-
ket. The horn sounded before
Arenas released a shot, but the offi-
cials ruled that Golden State's
Mickael Pietrus fouled Arenas with
time left on the clock.
Warriors coach Don Nelson was
issued a technical foul for arguing
the call, and Arenas was awarded a
total of three free throws.
With the crowd on its feet, Arenas
nailed the first two free throws
before Golden State called timeout.
He then calmly stepped back to the
line and sank the third shot.
Suns 99, Lakers 94
PHOENIX - Steve Nash scored
18 of his 23 points in the second


half - including two free throws
with 5.4 seconds to play, and the
Phoenix Suns held on to beat the
shorthanded Los Angeles Lakers
99-94 on Sunday.
Leandro Barbosa added 20
points and Amare Stoudemire 17
points and 11 rebounds, but the
Suns barely held off a Lakers team
without Lamar Odom, out indefinite-
ly after tearing his left labrum on
Friday.
Shawn Marion, who had missed
the two previous games with a
bruised right hand, had 13 points
and 12 rebounds before fouling out
with 22.8 seconds to play. Raja Bell
scored 14, including two that put
Phoenix ahead 97-92 with 18.1 sec-
onds to go.
Kobe Bryant scored 18 of his 30
points in the second half in the first
meeting of the teams since the sea-
son opener. The Lakers won that
one in Los Angeles without Bryant,
and they made it tough on Phoenix
this time, too.
The Suns, 7-1 since Nash
returned from a shoulder injury
after the All-star break, took the
lead for good early in the third
quarter but could build no more
than a 10-point advantage after
that.


GATORS
Continued from Page 1B

like to me it's like crazy how
,people can just be on your side
and all of a sudden, a couple
days later, the same people ...
just trash you. I've never expe-
.rienced that before. I realize
now that I can't let those people
affect who I am."
SThe Gators (26-5, 13-3) got
,behind early again and were
tied at halftime, but they used a
13-2 run to open the second half
and pulled away down the
:stretch to finish the season
unbeaten at home (18-0).
Noah, much like last year's
run through the NCAA tourna-
.ment, was the catalyst He had a
leaft-handed jam in the second-
half spurt, then threw down con-
secutive dunks that pushed the
ledd to 62-51 with about 10 min-
rites to play. He added seven
straight points in the closing
minutes that sealed the victory.
' Coach Billy Donovan said no
one really knows what kind of
pressure Noah has played
under this season, from getting
harassed by fans on the road to
being the media focal point to


getting double- and triple-
teamed nearly every time he
touches the ball.
"It's amazing to me how
everybody thinks they've got
everything figured out. They
know Joakim Noah. They know
what's wrong. And they have no
clue what they're talking about,"
Donovan said. "Nobody does.
"They all want to pump up
Joakim Noah, and when he
doesn't playwell, tear the kid
down. Unfortunately, that's the
way of the world. I think Jo has
finally realized, 'I've got to play
up to the expectation of my
coaches and my teammates and
do the very best I can.' It was
good to see him get back to that
energy level that he's had."
Noah's teammates seemed to
feed off his excitement
Taurean Green also broke out
of a shooting slump with 17
points. Green had hit 6 of 32
shots in the last four games -
Florida lost three of those -
but was 6-of-ll Sunday. He
added five assists.
Lee Humphrey, one of two
scholarship seniors honored
before their final home game,
finished with 11 points. Walter
Hodge was 5-of-5 from the field
and had 15 points.


"That's the way we need to
play," Green said. "We need to
play with that emotion and pas-
sion. As long as we play with
that and be smart with the ball
and play defense we'll be fine."
Bobby Perry led Kentucky
with 20 points, but 16 of them
came in the first half. Perry car-
ried the Wildcats in the opening
20 minutes, but Florida
clamped down on him after the
break, and no one else stepped
up to make shots for the
Wildcats.
Everybody made shots for the
Gators, who finished 32-of-50
from the field and had a 35-23
rebounding advantage.
"We gave up a lot of open
looks in the first half," Kentucky
coach Tubby Smith said. "We
thought we addressed it at half-
time, but obviously we didn't
because they shot better in the
second half."
It was just what the defending
national champions needed
after poor performances in
back-to-back losses at LSU and
Tennessee. Now, the Gators
have some much-needed
momentum heading into the
postseason.
And Noah might be back on
track

Avalanche stop




Red Wings in OT


Penguins beat

Flyers, 4-3,

in Shootout

Associated Press

DETROIT - Scoring goals
isn't usually Brad Richardson's
biggest contribution, but he got
a big one on Sunday.
His effort 2:41 into overtime
lifted the Colorado Avalanche
past the Red Wings 4-3, the
team's second win in their last
10 against Detroit
Milan Hejduk had a goal and
an assist, and Tyler Arnason
and Brett McLean also scored
for Colorado. Paul Stastny had
two assists, and Peter Budaj
made 31 saves.
"I think over the last 5-10
games, he's playing his best
hockey of the season,"
Quenneville said of
Richardson. "He's got good
speed ... He's useful on the wing
and at center killing penalties.
His production is a little bit of a
bonus the way he can play One
of the reasons why he's got 10
(goals) is he has a real sneaky
shot"
Kris Draper had two goals,
and Valtteri Filppula also
scored for the Red Wings.
Mathieu Schneider added two
assists, and Chris Osgood
stopped 23 shots.
Richardson poked in his own
rebound just over the goal line
after taking a pass from Wojtek
Wolski on a 2-on-1.
"I backhanded it as hard as I


could, but he (Osgood) made a
great save," said Richardson. "It
was just laying there and I
poked it and it squeaked under
him."
Wolski had stolen the puck
from Schneider at the
Avalanche blue line.
The Red Wings outshot the
Avalanche 18-5 in the third peri-
od, tying the score twice.
Draper's first goal of the
game tied it at 2 early in the
third period. His second made
it 3-3 with 1:27 left in regulation.
"You can't just expect to play
20 or 25 minutes of a hockey
game and win," Draper said.
"And that's what we did
tonight"
Meanwhile, Colorado was
determined to play better than
it did the last time the
Avalanche visited Detroit. They
were outshot 41-12 in a 4-1 loss
on Feb. 7.
"The last game here was just
horrible. I remember we had
like 12 shots and they had
almost 50," Hejduk said. "So not
our best We said we had to
come out hard and definitely
we gave a better effort than we
did the last time here. We had a
decent first period."
McLean gave the Avalanche a
3-2 lead 8:41 into the third peri-
od when he took a pass from
Hejduk, broke in and put a
backhand shot past Osgood.
Hejduk opened the scoring
with 9:05 left in the second peri-
od when he tipped in .a pass
from Stastny for his 25th goal.
Arnason made it 2-0 with his
15th goal. He beat Osgood from
the inside edge of the left circle

od.
Penguins 4, Flyers 3, SO
PITTSBURGH - Erik
Christensen twice scored tying
goals in regulation, then teamed
with Sidney Crosby to win it in the
shootout as the Pittsburgh Penguins
swept a season series from
Philadelphia for the first time by win-
ning 4-3 Sunday.
Pittsburgh won all eight games
against a once-dominating oppo-
nent that has won an average of
nearly two of every three games
played in the last 40 years between
the Pennsylvania rivals. The
Penguins went unbeaten against
Philadelphia once previously, going
5-0-2 in 1992-93, but had never pre-
viously swept every game in a sea-
son:.'
They nearly didn't this time, falling
behind 2-0 in a sloppily played first
period in which Mike York and
Braydon Coburn scored. But Gary
Roberts scored once and set up the
Penguins' other two goals in regula-
tion as Pittsburgh won for only the
second time in five games after get-
ting points in 16 consecutive games
(14-0-2).
Crosby decided a shootout for the
second time in four days, following up
Christensen's successful shot against
goalie Martin Biron by stickhandling
the puck down the slot before going
to his backhand to end it.
Thrashers 3, Hurricanes 1
ATLANTA - Marian Hossa
scored two goals and Kari Lehtonen
made 35 saves to help the Atlanta
Thrashers beat the Carolina
Hurricanes 3-1 Sunday.
The Thrashers moved into a tie
with Tampa Bay for first place in the
Southeast Division. Carolina, which
had won the three previous games
with the Thrashers in Atlanta this
season, are five points behind the
division leaders and clinging to the
final playoff spot in the Eastern
Conference.
Rod Brind'Amour scored in the
closing seconds of the first period
for the defending Stanley Cup
champion Hurricanes
The Thrashers.bave won three
straight games since acquiring Keith
Tkachuk'and Alexei Zhitnik just
before the trade deadline.
Tkachuk got his first point with
Atlanta on Ilya Kovalchuk's power-
play goal that broke a tie in the sec-
ond period.
Hossa had a chance for three
goals, but missed an open net in
the final seconds after Carolina
pulled goalie John Grahame.

Blackhawks 4, Senators 3, SO
CHICAGO - Radim Vrbata and
Jeff Hamilton scored in the shootout
to give the Chicago Blackhawks a
4-3 win over the Ottawa Senators
on Sunday.
Vrbata and Mikael Holmqvist also
scored in regulation for the
Blackhawks, who snapped a three-
game losing streak. Chicago's
Patrick Lalime, who played five sea-
sons with Ottawa from 1999 to
2004, blocked 30 shots.
Chicago's Brent Seabrook scored
on a screened shot from the left
point during a 4-on-4 with 1:59 left
in the third period to set up over-
time, as Chicago rallied from a 3-1
deficit.
Daniel Alfredsson had a goal and
an assist for the Senators, who lost
their second straight.
Oleg Saprykin and Antoine
Vermette also scored for Ottawa,.:
which got 22 saves-fron, Martin .
Gerber.
Dany Heatley and Jason Spezza
both extended their point-scoring
streaks to 11 games when they
assisted on Alfredsson's power-play
goal early in the second.
Heatley scored in the shootout for
Ottawa but his goal-scoring streak
ended at six games, as he failed to
connect in regulation. He had scored
eight times .during the stretch.


Sharks 4, Stars 0
DALLAS - Evgeni Nabokov
stopped 26 shots for his 32nd
career shutout, Joe Pavelski scored
two goals, and the San Jose Sharks
snapped a season-long four-game
losing streak with a 4-0 victory over
the Dallas Stars on Sunday.
Curtis Brown set the tone with a
goal in the opening three minutes
and Ryane Clowe also scored to
help San Jose improve to 80 points,
one behind second-place Dallas in
the Pacific Division.
The Sharks had been 0-3-1 in
their previous four games and won
only two of the first seven meetings
with the Stars this season, but
Nabokov didn't have much trouble
earning his fifth shutout of the sea-
son.
San Jose had dropped its past
six games to the top eight teams in
the Western Conference and was in
a 2-6-1 slump before beating Dallas
in the teams' final regular-season
meeting.
Marty Turco had 14 saves for the
Stars, 12-3-4 in their previous 19
games including an 8-1-2 run at
home to jump past the Sharks in the
standings.
Turco saw Sharks parked in front
of the net for much of the game,
creating traffic and ready for
rebounds.

Devil R


Associated Press
ST. PETERSBURG - Jae
Kuk Ryu is having a surprising
spring.
The South Korean right-han-
der was preparing to report to
camp with the Chicago Cubs
last month when he learned he
had been traded to Tampa Bay
for a pair of minor leaguers.
Devil Rays pitching coach
Jim Hickey delivered the next
big surprise Friday'
morning, informing .
Ryu that he would start ,*
Sunday against
Toronto.
"I was like, 'You're L .
kidding,"' the 23-year- '
old Ryu said after limit-
ing the Blue Jays to a
single in two shutout J,
innings of Tampa Bay's Kulk
7-4 loss.
Ryu, who made nine of his 10
appearances for Chicago last
year out of the bullpen, said he
feels comfortable filling any
role the Devil Rays have for
him.
"Starter or reliever, same
thing," he said. "Closer, if they
want. I can do anything."
Veteran right-hander John
Thomson had similar success
in his debut for the Blue Jays,
who took advantage of six
Tampa Bay errors. Thomson
also allowed only a single in
two scoreless innings.
Non-roster invitee Curtis
Thigpen capped the Toronto
scoring with a two-run homer
off Tony Peguero in the ninth
inning. Tampa Bay scored


says, 7-4
twice in its final turn at bat, but
Evan Longoria grounded into a
game-ending double play with
the bases loaded.
Notes: Ryu is one of three
South Koreans on the spring
training roster for Tampa Bay.
The others are RHP Jae Seo
and 1B Hee-Seop Choi. ... The
Devil Rays had never commit-
ted six errors in a game -
spring training or otherwise....
Toronto RHP A.J.
J Burnett is scheduled to
pitch three innings in
his second start
Thursday against
Boston. ... The Blue
Jays returned C-1B
Erik Kratz to their
minor league camp. ...
Toronto OF Alex Rios
ae (right shoulder) is
SRyu expected to play in the
field later this week.
OF Reed Johnson (lower back
strain) is still taking it easy,
manager John Gibbons said....
Blue Jays LHP Jo Matumoto
became the first Brazilian to
appear in a major league game
of any type when he relieved in
the ninth. He allowed two runs,
walked three and got one out.
Johnson might miss at
least a month of season
MIAMI - Josh Johnson's sore
arm might be the result of nerve
damage that could force the
Florida Marlins' right-hander to
miss the first month of the season
or more.
Three MRI exams Friday
showed no ligament or rotator cuff

problems, and a bone scan was
normal, agent Matt Sosnick said.
"Tihey think it's probably a nerve
thing," Sosnick said. "The worst-
case scenario is probably that he
would be out eight to 12 weeks,
but they have to figure out what
this thing is."
More tests are planned,
Regardless of the results, Johnson
is likely to miss the start of the sea-
son April 2.
Johnson went 12-7 with a 3.10
ERA as a rookie in 2006. His armr


trouble first surfaced last
September, when he missed the
final three weeks of the season,
and the problem recurred during
throwing sessions shortly before
Johnson reported to spring training
last month.
He hasn't thrown from the
mound since camp opened.
Candidates to take Johnson's spot
in the rotation include right-handers
Yusmeiro Petit, Wes Obermueller,
Sergio Mitre and Jose Garcia, and
left-hander Chris George.


Cardinals have



easy time with


Marlins, win 12-3


Florida hadjust

one hit through

the first 8 innings

Associated Press

JUPITER - The defending
Grapefruit League champion
Florida Marlins are not only
having a tough time winning,
they're having a tough time get-
ting hits.
Two days after being one-hit
in a loss to Baltimore, the
Marlins had just one hit
through the first eight innings
Sunday before scoring two
runs in the ninth in a 12-3 loss
to the St. Louis Cardinals.
"I couldn't believe we only
had a one-hitter," Marlins man-
ager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We
hit the ball hard, I thought The
quality at-bats are there."
Part of Florida's problem
was Cardinals starter Anthony
Reyes. The right-hander made
a strong bid to break camp with
a rotation spot by throwing two
scoreless innings in his
Grapefruit League debut.
Reyes had a high pitch count
in the first inning, but escaped
with no runs after Hanley
Ramirez led off with a walk,
stole second and advanced to
third on Dan Uggla's roller to
the mound, Florida's first out


Reyes threw 18 pitches in
the inning, 12 for strikes, fochs-
ing on a two-seam fastball he is
trying to perfect this spring.-;
"I was keeping them low, in
the zone. I think starting off
this year, it's a little more effec-
tive than when I started off last
year," said Reyes, who threw 19
strikes in 32 pitches.
"I was just trying to get back
into game mode and trying to
control everything. I think
after that first inning, I calmed
down a little bit"
St. Louis also got a strong
performance from Brad
Thompson, who tossed three
perfect innings to bolster his
rotation bid. Albert Pujols and
Scott Rolen each went 2-for-3.
Marlins starter Scott Olsen
allowed three walks and three
runs in 2 1-3 innings, a per-
formance he blamed on a slow
tempo brought on by bad
mechanics.
"If you look at a tape from
me in July or August, my deliv-
ery is faster, my tempo is faster,
right now it's just real lack-
adaisical." he said. "The delvy-
ery is slow. I'm walking around,
taking too much time on the
mound."
Right-hander Chris Volst'ad,
the Marlins' top pick in the
2005 draft, allowed four runs,
two earned, in 2 2-3 innings.

that ended with a green-white-
checker finish after a late cau-
tion. Carl Edwards was fourth,
and Pruett finished fifth.
"I'm really glad we won, but
really upset that we took out a
teammate," said Brad Parrott,
Montoya's crew chief.
Montoya, who had the domi-
nant car for the entire race,
started in third but took the
lead from Pruett on -the third
lap.
Montoya made a green-flag
stop on the 45th lap, but a fuel
malfunction forced him to
return to the pits about 10 laps
later. After a caution, he start-
ed 19th and quickly moved his
way back to the front of the
field.
"The reason I came to
NASCAR is for the racing, and
we showed today it is a great
place for racing," Montoya
said.
His victory was celebrated
with deafening cheers from the
72,000-strong Mexican crowd.
Montoya gained a following in
Mexico with Formula N victo-
ries back in the 1990s.
The Mexican fans were hun-
gry for a fellow Latino to win a
NASCAR event in Mexico after
two years in which U.S. drivers
took the crown south of the
border.

"It's huge for the Latin com-
munity and for everybody who
supported me," Montoya said.
"Every time I'm out there I
want to shine.
To be able to convert this
into victory shows where the
Ganassi team is going.
Hopefully we can share a lot
more successes."
Two Mexican drivers fin-
ished in the top 10.
Jorge Goeters started fourth
and held the lead for three laps
before finishing seventh. It was
a personal best for the Mexico
City native who stunned the
field by winning the pole for
the 2005 race.
"I'm very excited," Goeters
said. "This is the kind of race
that everybody loves. Nobody
knows who's going to win until
the white flag is coming up.
Congratulations to Juan
Pablo."
Adrian Fernandez, Mexico's
best known driver, finished
ninth.
The course features eight
tight turns and was tough for
many Busch Series regulars
used to negotiating oval tracks.
David Reutiman, who fin-
ished 12th in a Toyota, said he
had never seen turns like these
in his life.
"I definitely learned a lot,"
he said. "We had to run off the
track one time but other than
that we stayed on course, and
they told me if I kept clean I
would come home with a top
15."

From basic .to spring training


Marine trying

to win minor

league pitchingjob

with San Diego

Associated 'Press

PEORIA, Ariz. - One by one,
more than 80 players seated on
a back field of the Padres'
spring training complex stood
and gave their names and
where they were last season.
"Jesus Lopez. Fort Wayne.
Eugene."
Class-A teammates laughed
and teased.
"Michael Johnson. Pittsburgh
Pirates. Indianapolis."
The group welcomed
Johnson into the organization.
Then a tall, broad-shoul-
dered and tanned No. 40 stood.
"Cooper Brannan. United
States Marine Corps."
No one said a word.
No one had to. They all knew
the story of the player unlike
any other in camp. Or in base-
ball this spring. Brannan, a 22-
year-old Marine infantryman
home from a second tour of
duty in Iraq because he lost a
finger to a grenade, is trying to
win a minor league pitching
job with San Diego.
"It's not every day a guy com-
ing out of the Marine Corps
gets to do this, you know?" a
beaming Corporal Brannan
said as he walked through the
Padres clubhouse after a
bullpen session.
"It was great!"
Earlier, the 6-foot-4, 235-


Associated Press
San Diego Padres minor league pitcher Cooper Brannan throws during a workout at baseball spring training, Sunday in Peoria, Ariz.
Brannan has faced improvised explosive devices, the threat of snipers and the loss of a finger during two tours of duty in Iraq. So one
suspects the Marine was not exactly fazed by his first pitching workout at the San Diego Padres' minor league camp.


pound squad leader who grew
up in nearby Gilbert, Ariz.,
threw his fastballs, two ver-
sions of a changeup and a split-
ter he wants to keep quiet.
He didn't show much of the
curveball the Padres say is
impressive - even though the
only time Brannan has used it
since high school four years
ago was last summer with the
All-Marine Corps team against
semipro squads.


Associated Press
San Diego Padres minor league pitcher Cooper Brannan rests his
hands on his hips before a workout at baseball spring training,
Sunday in Peoria, Ariz. Brannan lost his left little finger in a mishap
with an explosive device while on a tour of duty as a Marine in Iraq.


Bob Cluck, the former pitch-
ing coach for Detroit, Houston
and Oakland and now San
Diego's minor league pitching
consultant, watched closely
behind Brannan.
After Sunday's bullpen ses-
sion - Cluck told the broad-
shouldered Brannan he liked
what he saw. Brannan asked
"What's your name again?"
"Bob," Cluck answered.
"Nice to meet you, Bob,"
Brannan said.
There was no salute - or an
incoming mortar round or
sniper - to be found.
"Coming to this, it's just
amazing," he said. "From call-
ing your higher-ups 'Yes, sir'
and 'No, sir' to calling your
coaches by first name? It's a
pretty big difference."
So is Brannan's lifestyle.
"Yeah, it's definitely a huge
culture shock," he said, inside
a carpeted clubhouse with tel-
evisions, whirlpools. "You go
from living from the Bible
times to coming back living in
civilization, pretty much. You
really know what you've taken
for granted. You appreciate
the smaller things in life."
Such as?
"Being able to walk outside


your house without feeling
like a bomb is going to go off
on your frickin' street," he
said, chuckling, "Being able to
watch TV Being able to use a
toilet."
Brannan had all those
things when he graduated
from high school in May 2003,
as a three-year letterman in
football and baseball. He was-
n't fully sure he wanted to
commit to baseball career. But
he was sure he wanted to com-
mit to his country.
So he enlisted in the Marine
Corps. He graduated from
basic training as a platoon
honor man, completed
infantry school and was
deployed to Hitt, Iraq, in
February 2004.
He said he knew when he
signed up that he'd be in a war
almost immediately.
"I went to the Marine Corps
for a lot of different reasons,"
he said. "No. 1, 9-11. And No.
2, I thought it could help me
out with self-respect and the
core values: honor, courage,
commitment. I was able to
achieve that in the Marine
Corps."
His first eight-month tour in
Iraq ended and he returned to


his duty station in Twenty-
nine Palms, Calif. Eleven
months later, in September
2005, he was back with his
unit in Fallujah, Iraq, for a
second tour.
In November, Brannan was
conducting pre-combat
inspections of his 12-man
squad before a patrol. One of
his youngest, least-experi-
enced squad members didn't
have a flash-bang grenade. So
Brannan reached into the left-
side pocket of his flak jacket
to give him his. It malfunc-
tioned and exploded while
still in Brannan's left hand.
While drifting in and out of
consciousness, he thought his
entire hand was blown off. But
he had lost only his pinky.
While he was in a morphine
haze, doctors amputated what
remained of the finger and
the medial part of his hand,
well below the outside knuck-
le.
After being evacuated to the
Naval Medical Center in San
Diego for three follow-up sur-
geries, Brannan got married
to Lindsay Marie Wagener.
They now have a 3-week-old
daughter, Brooke, and the
family is staying two blocks


from the Padres camp.
During his recovery, he
began working on rekindling
his love for baseball, a love'he
had sustained by having tiis
parents mail gloves and bas'e-
balls to Iraq. He'd play catnh
with fellow Marines between
shifts of three days patrolling,
three days guarding and three
days as the quick reaction
force, ready to aid patrols
under fire.
"It's a challenge," he said.
"There was nothing really
sugarcoated about my job." ['
He is currently stationed at
the Marine Corps RecrUit
Depot in San Diego and pn
full recovery duty status. He
cannot sign a Padres contract
until after May 31, the last day
of his Marines commitment.
Until then, he is fulfilling
the most amazing military
order he can imagine. P
"Once I got the offer to come
out here, they gave me ordes
to come play baseball. Pretty
good deal, huh?" Brannan
said, beaming again. "It was
awesome."
He's definitely welcomed
here. Padres chief executive
officer Sandy Alderson served
four years as an officer in the
Mariners, including a tour'in
Vietnam. The team plays some
home games each season in
Marine camouflage jerseysfto
honor the thousands of Nivy
and Marine personnel sta-
tioned around San Diego. �,
The Padres insist this is not
a feel-good publicity stutnt,
that Brannan is a good
prospect with an above-avdr-
age curveball to go with 3is
far-above-average life experi-
ences.
Grady Fuson, San Diego's
vice president for scouting
and player development,
called Brannan "a young and
athletic Marine with a solid
build, a promising arm and a
great breaking ball.
"The Padres love taking
chances on athletic players
and we are excited about hav-
ing Cooper in the organiza-
tion."
Brannan doesn't want to be
a celebrity here, just a baSe-
ball player who has a gopd
story to tell, if asked.
"I did a job," he said. "And I
did what I was supposed to do,
what I was asked to do. And I
followed through and I did it.
Mission complete."


NFL 5 i


Bucs sign free agent
fullback B.J. Askew
TAMPA-- Free-agent fullback
B.J. Askew signed a contract with
the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on
Sunday.
Askew, drafted by the Jets in the
third round out of Michigan in 2003,
has played in 55 games in his four
NFL seasons, all with New York. In
2004, he and Jerald Sowell were
the lead blockers for running back
Curtis Martin, who led the league
with 1,697 yards rushing.
Askew has 102 yards rushing on
27 carries and 12 catches for 73
yards in four seasons while being
used mainly as a blocker. He was
also a standout on special teams.


Askew recently told The
Associated Press that he wanted a
chance to switch roles on the field,
from fullback to halfback - some-
thing he did while rushing for 1,580
yards and 17 touchdowns in col-
lege at Michigan.
He also caught 83 passes for
777 yards and six TDs with the'
Wolverines.
"B.J. enjoyed his time with the
Jets, but he wanted an opportunity
to utilize all of his talents," said
Askew's agent, Scott Smith. "He is
much more than a traditional block-
ing fullback, and now he will be
playing in a system that has pro-
duced one of the most prolific
power backs in history in Mike
Alstott."


Jags agree to 5-year
deal with Northcutt
JACKSONVILLE - The
Jacksonville Jaguars believe they
found a legitimate deep threat in
free agency, agreeing to a five-year
contract with former Cleveland
receiver Dennis Northcutt on
Sunday.
Northcutt was flying to
Jacksonville for a physical Sunday
and was expected to sign the deal
Monday.
The contract was reportedly worth
$17 million and included a $4.5-million
signing bonus.
Northcutt had 276 receptions for
3,438 yards and 11 touchdowns in
seven years with the Browns. He


caught 117 passes for 1,535 yards
and four touchdowns during the 2003-
04 seasons. His production dipped
the last two years with 64 receptions
for 669 yards and two scores.
But the Jaguars think he will
help spread the field for quarter-
back Byron Leftwich, receivers
Matt Jones and Reggie Williams
and the running game.
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound
Northcutt also could help the
Jaguars on special teams since he
ranked fourth in the league last
season in punt returns.
Northcutt would be the second
free agent signing for the Jaguars.
They signed former Baltimore right
tackle Tony Pashos to a five-year
contract worth $24 million Friday.


Texans agree to terms
wih Geen Bay RB Goen
HOUSTON - The Houston
Texans agreed to terms with free
agent running back Ahman Green
on Sunday.
The 30-year-old former Green Bay
Packer will likely become the starter
for a team that struggled at the posi-
tion last season after Domanick
Williams - formerly Davis - missed
the year with knee problems.
Green will be introduced at a 1
p.m. news conference in Houston
on Monday, said Texans vice presi-
dent of communications Tony
Wyllie. Terms of the contract were
not immediately available.
Houston also has a trio of inex-


perienced running backs in Wali
Lundy, Chris Taylor and fellow for-
mer Green Bay player Samkon ,
Gado. They also hope to re-sign'
free agent Ron Dayne, the 1999
Heisman Trophy winner, who
excelled late last season after
years of struggles.
Green had 266 carries for 1,059
yards last season after returning
from a torn right quadriceps in
2005. He missed two games last
season because of lingering effects
from the injury.
He has 8,491 yards and 54
touchdowns in his nine-year career
that began with Seattle. Before tPIe
injury two years ago, Green gained
more than 1,100 yards in each of
the previous five seasons.

Continued from Page 1B

Weekley then made a 3-footer
to earn his trip to the second
playoff hole, and Villegas fol-
lowed with a tap-in from
about 2 feet - the final shot
before play was suspended.
"We had no chance of play-
ing any more holes," Villegas
said. "It was real dark."
Villegas and Coceres closed
with 4-under 66s, while
Weekley and Wilson shot 71s.
Tripp Isenhour (67), Robert
Allenby (68) and Steve
Stricker (69) followed at 4
under, and Brett Wetterich
and Daniel Chopra (71) were
another shot back
The leaderboard was tight
at the start of the round, and
only got more congested dur-
ing the afternoon.
Coceres began his day with
five straight birdies; he'd had
five in his previous 41 holes
entering Sunday, yet was sim-
ply sizzling early and got with-
in one shot of Wilson. Allenby,
the field's best player on the
front side all week, went out
in 31 and got to 6 under before
fading with a 2-over 37 on the
back side, and Isenhour got
into the mix with three
straight birdies on Nos. 2-4.
Villegas wound up getting to
the crucial 5-under mark with
birdies at Nos. 16 and 17 -


the final two holes of PGA
National's famed "Bear
Trap," named in honor of
course redesigner Jack
Nicklaus.
"I've never been in a four-
man playoff," Villegas said.
"But you know what? I can
only control my game. I can
only control what I can do.
And when I come back tomor-
row morning, I'll be feeling
great."
Isenhour - who made a
costly bogey at the 15th hole,
the first of the three-hole
stretch named in Nicklaus'
honor - nearly joined the
final logjam at 5 under, but his
birdie putt at the final hole
slid just past the right edge.
"I kept giving myself
chances," Isenhour said. "I
got 'Bear Trapped.'"
It's the sixth time the Honda
has gone to a playoff; most
recently, Padraig Harrington
beat Vijay Singh and Joe
Ogilvie at Mirasol on the sec-
ond extra hole in 2005. It's
also the tour's first four-man
playoff since the 2004 Reno-
Tahoe Open, and the first
unscheduled Monday finish
since the 2005 PGA
Championship.
"If it's my time to win,"
Weekley said, "then I'll win."
Notes: Robert Garrigus'
final round started with a dou-
ble bogey, and got worse. He
took another double at No. 7,


then put three balls in the
water at the par-3 15th - mak-
ing 9 there and furthering his
spiral to a 14-over 84. He fin-
ished at 18 over. ... J.J. Henry
bogeyed the par-4 eighth hole,
ending a run of 26 straight

Woman, husband should seek counseling


Dear Annie: I am in my mid-50s
and have a very low libido. I'm
not a candidate for hormone
replacement therapy due to a family
history of breast cancer.
I thought men's libidos
waned as they aged, but not -7
so with my 63-year-old hus-
band. His libido has
increased, and he thinks
there's nothing better than a --
romp in the sack now that
he's retired and the kids are
out of the house - to heck
with daily responsibilities
and the fact that I still have a
full-time, high-stress job,
working long hours and com-
ing home exhausted.
My husband is always ANh
grabbing and pawing me, MAI
which, at times, is actually
painful. I've repeatedly asked him not
tb do this, because it seems very disre-
spectful, but he usually makes some
caustic remark like, "I have a marriage
license that gives me the right," or
"Baby, be thankful you still turn me on!"
He also tells me that my attitude toward
sex isn't normal.
,I dread socializing, because he
always brings up sex or makes crude
jokes and embarrasses me. Recently, at
a family gathering, with a leer on his
face, he blurted out that I didn't like sex
anymore. I was so humiliated, I wanted
to sink through the floor. Thankfully, a


I
L


relative put him in his place, saying this
was a private subject best kept between
the two of us.
I wholeheartedly believe in a loving
relationship between a husband and
wife, but everything is "sex"
to my husband, with no ten-
derness or caring. I'm totally
turned off by his attitude and
have told him so, but he
ignores my feelings. I finally
lost my temper and told him
to keep his hands off me for
good. So far he has, but not
without nasty, snotty remarks
slung my way.
Should I stand my ground
and have some sexual peace,
or just give in to keep him
IE'S. happy? - Frustrated in the
.BOX Mountains
Dear Frustrated: It sounds
as if your husband is trying to prove
something. We don't blame you for being
upset, but we don't think withholding
sex is the best approach. It might be a
good idea to get some joint counseling
and let him figure out why he's so inse-
cure that he needs to treat you this way
Dear Annie: My mom is moving into
an assisted living home, and she and I
are cleaning out her house. Mom has
quite a few photo albums. She would
like to return the old pictures of her
nieces and nephews to them or their
parents.
Is this appropriate, or would it hurt


their feelings? We are going to toss out
the rest of the pictures since we can't
identify them and no one is interested in
people or places they don't recognize.
Thanks for your help. - Archeological
Digger
Dear Digger: It is perfectly proper to
offer the pictures to your nieces and
nephews, explaining that Mom cher-
ished these photographs, but is now
unable to keep them. And thanks, too,
for the reminder to write the names and
dates of the subjects on the back of the
photos - and if you have digital pic-
tures, caption them.
Dear Annie: This is for "Tired of
Feeling Down." I, too, was diagnosed
with depression, and medication did lit-
tle to help me. I was also unable to sleep
and even felt tired on the days I did. I
was finally diagnosed with overactive
adrenal glands. The increased hormone
production caused me to feel anxious
even without cause. And because my
adrenaline levels increased at night,
they interfered with my ability to fall
asleep or engage in REM-stage sleep.
Tell "Tired" to see an endocrinologist
or a naturopathic physician. My treat-
ment lasted a mere three months, and I
am now fully functional without any
type of medication. -Feeling Rested
Dear Rested: Thanks for the sugges-
tion. Whenever a condition does not
seem to be improving, be sure to have a
complete physical to rule out other
causes.

Bridge


PHILLIP ALDER
Newspaper Enterprise Assn.

There have been lots of comments
about instant action and procrasti-
nation. Aaron Burr said, "Never do
today what you can put offtill tomor-
row. Delay may give clearer light as
to what is best to be done."
That may apply at the bridge
table, but not always. In this deal,
you reach our favorite three no-
trump. West leads his fourth-highest
heart and East puts up the queen.
What would be your plan?
The auction is as straightforward
as can be.
You start with seven top tricks:
two spades, one heart (trick one),
three diamonds and one club. The
extra tricks will come from the
clubs. But there is a snag - the club
finesse is into the East hand. He is
the defender who can return a heart
straight through your remaining
heart holding.
If you take trick one, the best line
is to lead the club queen to encour-
age West to cover if he has the king,
and to win with dummy's ace when
West plays low. You might drop a sin-
gleton king in the East hand. But if
that does not happen, you play
another club. Here, though, East
wins with his king and returns his
heart nine straight through your
jack-five. ,West takes four heart
tricks to defeat you.

The secret? Never do at trick one
what you can put off till trick two.
Play your heart five under East's
queen. Probably East will return his
second heart, but that cuts commu-
nication between the defenders. (If
hearts are 4-3, you can lose at most
three hearts and one club.)
Benjamin Franklin said, "You
may delay, but time will not" If you
delayed winning your heart trick in
this deal, you timed the play per-
fectly

-Today' s1O .SCOPE


Today's Birthday - There is a strong possibility
you may be given far greater responsibility in your cho-
sen field of endeavor.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) - A situation about
which you have been dubious will work out far better
than you may anticipate if you react positively to sud-
den developments instead of being fearful of them.
Aries (March 21-April 19) - Working in conjunc-
tion with another, who has skills you don't possess, will
enable you to pull off something you couldn't have
achieved otherwise.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) - Seek relief from your
everyday activities, because you'll feel far more fulfilled
functioning in ways that could produce some lively
results that will help you escape from dreary routines.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) - Try new methods of
handling a job you've tackled many times - even you
may be surprised by how it'll cut the task down to a
manageable size. You'll never go back to the old way.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) - Today could turn out
to be one of those days you can be extremely fortunate
in ways never experienced.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) - Good news is on its way
to you regarding something that could benefit you


materially.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Everyday patterns
may not satisfy you. As a result, you could gamble on
something you normally wouldn't. Much to everyone's
surprise, however, it'll turn out to favor you.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Sometimes it is neces-
sary to prime the pump a little in order to stimulate a
bit of excitement in your social life. Get your friends
involved by thinking of something fun to do.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - You're apt to fare far
better by letting events happen in their own way
instead of you trying to steer them.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Today is bn
extremely good day for making valuable contacts. -'
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - This could be one
of those unusual days where you may have a number
of people stepping forward to assist you without being
asked. Fortunately, they'll possess the edge you
need.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)- You'll have a better
chance of fulfilling your personal ambitions if you do
things out of the ordinary rather than performing in the
same old ho-hum way. Many good surprises can crop
up.
