Bush swmgs




into Uruguay


President signals

Associated Press
MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay -
President Bush claimed pro-
gress on trade with Uruguay's
president Saturday, courting
another leftist leader on
his Latin American tour
"We care about the
human condition," Bush
said, trying to co-opt the
populism of one influen-
tial leftist rival he won't
meet: Venezuela's fire-
brand, Hugo Chavez.
In a part of the world Tat
where the U.S. invasion V--
of Iraq is particularly presi
unpopular, Bush is not Urugu
talking much about the with B
global war on terror And Satu
while he won't mention
Chavez by name, his soft-sell
pitch clearly is intended to
counter the Venezuelan leader's
rising stature and rants that
blame Latin America's poverty
on U.S.-style capitalism.
"I would call our diplomacy
quiet and effective diplomacy -
diplomacy all aimed at helping
people, aimed at elevating the
human condition, aimed at
expressing the great compassion
of the American people," Bush
said at a joint news conference
with Uruguayan President
Tabare Vazquez. As he has on
other stops, he mentions
increases in U.S. aid programs
during his presidency.
The two met at the Uruguayan
presidential retreat in
Anchorena Park, a riverside
ranch and national park about
- 120 miles west of here. Bush
traveled by helicopter.
The Bush administration is
trying to strike a freer-trade deal
with Uruguay. But the efforts are
complicated by the country's
membership in a rival South
American trading bloc.
Uruguay, a tiny coastal nation
overshadowed by neighboring
Brazil and Argentina, wants to
sell more beef and textiles to the
United States, its biggest trading
partner.
The two discussed U.S. re-
strictions on Uruguayan im-
ports. Vazquez also said he want-


disdain for Chavez

ed to expand scientific, techni-
cal and cultural exchanges - all
to establish "a better standard of
living for our people."
Both agreed to talk more.
Said Vazquez, "We have creat-
ed a plan starting with
this meeting" in which
trade and agriculture
experts from both coun-
tries will meet to iron
out differences.
Bush said the United
States is "fully prepared
to reduce agricultural
bare subsidies" but first
-. wants to make sure
dent of "there is market access
lay met for our products."
Bush on Vazquez also pressed
urday. for a more liberal immi-
gration policy in the
United States. Bush said he
would work for a "compassion-
ate and rationale immigration
law" that recognizes the United
States cannot grant automatic
citizenship to undocumented
immigrants or "kick people out"
Bush reported talking with
the president about the poten-
tial of ethanol as an alternate
fuel. He praised Vazquez's
efforts to improve his coun-
try's economy, which is grow-
ing at an estimated rate of 7
percent.
The day before, Bush struck a.
deal on ethanol promotion with
Brazil's left-wing leader, Luiz
Inacio Lula de Silva.
Bush is seeking to shore up
relations with democratically
elected leaders of both the left
and the right in Latin America.
He took in a traditional barbe-
cue known as an asado-with
Vazquez. The leaders also went
for about a 25-minute boat ride
on the Plate River Earlier, Bush
extended to Silva a rare invita-
tion to visit the presidential
retreat at Camp David, Md.
He heads next for more con-
servative country, visiting
Colombia on Sunday, Guate-
mala on Monday and Mexico on
Tuesday and Wednesday. All
are now headed by right-wing
politicians countering the
region's recent trend toward
leftists.

The Halls River Road central sewer
line project will reach its second birth-
day next month, but no one is ready to
break out the candles and kazoos to cel-
ebrate. .
The $3.5-million project is more than
a year past its original completion date.
During that time, quiet neighborhoods
have evolved into noisy construction
zones and narrow paved side streets
have been transformed into dusty dirt,
roads.
Neighbors blame Danella National
Inc., the contractor, for not finishing the
project on time, but also point the finger
at the county for not forcing the compa-
ny to complete the work sooner.
The county says the final work prod-
uct must meet its standards, but the con-
tract gives Danella sole responsibility
for performing the work The delays,
county officials say, were largely self-
inflicted on Danella's part and the con-
tract requires the company to correct
what went wrong.
"It's becoming embarrassing," said
County Commissioner Gary Bartell,
who advocated installing central sewer
lines to eliminate septic tank pollution
from'the Homosassa River valley. 'Just
imagine what those residents have
endured'with those pads tore up." The
project is 1i Bartel,l's district.
County officials are predicting the
project will be completed by April if the
contractor makes good on predictions.
The county says the project is 98 per-
cent complete. But the construction

"I didn't make mistakes. I
didn't misapply funds," he said.
"I may have seen a slowdown
or had a lien here or there. But
I'm surely not going to pack up

Gage made those comments
to a reporter during a Feb. 21
interview at his Floral City
office.
"There are some liens out
there," he said. "By Tuesday,
Wednesday, every single one of
them will be gone."
He then agreed to meet with
the reporter two days later to

Today in


Today is Sunday, March 11, the
70th day of 2007. There are 295
days left in the year.
Today's Highlight in History:
On March 11, 1942, as
Japanese forces continued to
advance in the Pacific during
World War II, Gen. Douglas
MacArthur left the Philippines for
Australia, vowing: "I shall return."
(He kept that promise nearly three
years later.)
On this date:
In 1861, the Confederate con-
vention in Montgomery, Ala.,
adopted a constitution.
In 1941, President Roosevelt
signed into law the Lend-Lease
Bill, providing war supplies to
countries fighting the Axis.
In 1957, Charles Van Doren's
14-week run on the rigged NBC
game show "Twenty-One" ended":
as he was "defeated" by attorney
Vivienne Nearing.
In 1965, the Rev. James J.
Reeb, a white minister from
Boston, died after being beaten by,,
whites during civil rights distur-
bances in Selma, Ala.
In 1977, more than 130
hostages held in Washington,
D.C., by Hanafi Muslims were
freed after ambassadors from
three Islamic nations joined talks.
In 2004, 10 bombs exploded In
quick succession across the com-
muter rail network in Madrid,
Spain, killing 191 people in an
attack linked to al-Qaida.
Ten years ago: In a startling
turnaround, Senate Republicans
agreed to a broader investigation
of campaign financing that would
include a look at huge "soft .
money" donations.
Five years ago: Two columns
of light soared skyward from
ground zero in New York as a tem-
porary memorial to the victims of
the Sept. 11 attacks.
One year ago: Former Serbi
leader Slobodan Milosevic was
found dead of a heart attack in his
prison cell in the Netherlands,
abruptly ending his four-year U.N.
war crimes trial.
Today's Birthdays: Media
mogul Rupert Murdoch is 76. ABC
News correspondent Sam ;
Donaldson is 73. Supreme Court
Justice Antonin Scalia is 71.
Singer Bobby McFerrin is 57.
Country singer Jimmy Fortune is
52. Actor Johnny Knoxville is 36;
Singer LeToya is 26.
Thought for Today: "There are
some people who leave impres-
sions not so lasting as the imprint
of an oar upon the water." - Kate
Chopin, American writer (1851-,
1904).

Crist serious about sunshine


Governor says each state agency

must process records request quickly


Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - Florida
already has strong laws ensur-
ing that people have access to
government records and meet-
ings, and now it has a strong
advocate in the state's highest
office who says he wants them
followed.
Florida's Sunshine laws are
often violated, usually out of
ignorance. There are other
times officials ignore or try to
get around laws that require
government business be dis-


cussed in the open. Records
requests are . sometimes
denied, or exorbitant costs and
delays serve as barriers to
records requests.
Crist's first act as governor
was an order creating the
Office of Open Government to
train state officials and
employees about open govern-
ment and public records laws
and to ensure compliance. The
order he signed his second day
in office is a message about
how important open govern-
ment is for Florida's residents,


Crist said.
"I feel very strongly about it
because it is their government.
They paid for it, they elected it,
they supported it and they have
a right to know how it's work-
ing for them," Crist said.
"Florida's the national leader
with this stuff. It's great. We are
the Sunshine State and we let
the sunshine in to our govern-
ment like no other state in our
country."
As part of Crist's order creat-
ing the Office of Open
Government, state agencies
under his control must desig-
nate someone to oversee pub-
lic records requests and
ensure the agency complies
with Sunshine laws. He direct-
ed that records requests be


filled quickly and completely
"You couldn't get us to say
anything bad about Gov. Crist
right now," said Adria Harper,
executive director of the First
Amendment Foundation, an
open government watchdog
group. "He's showing that this
is a serious priority and he has
a huge commitment to open
government. It's certainly a
great thing for us."
Crist, whose reputation as an
open government advocate was
built during his four years as
attorney general, is leading by
example.
Florida doesn't allow pre-
arranged meetings between
three or more lawmakers to
discuss legislation. That also
applies to prearranged meet-

Crist is providing plenty of
notice to those meetings. He
even invited a pool reporter on
the state plane when flying
with a group of lawmakers so
the discussion could be docu-
mented.
By contrast, Gov. Jeb Bush's
office provided little advance
notice of meetings with law-
makers, sometimes sending an
e-mail to reporters as the meet-

meant they were usually over

Cody Davis, 22, who was con-
victed in October of robbery
and sentenced to three years
in prison, spent more than four
months incarcerated, but on
FIidayecame a free man, the
South "o'fidda Sun-Sentinel

Two witnesses identified
Davis. .and a jury convicted

was not worn by the burglar
during the crime, ChiefAssistant
State Attorney Al Johnson.
Test results came back with
DNA matching another man in
the DNA database and a Palm
Beach County Sheriff's detec-

had similar characteristics.
Investigators visited the
other man in prison where he
confessed to three robberies,
Johnson said. Prosecutors
immediately asked to have
Davis released.

Do not be alarmed: Warning sirens scheduled for tests


Sounds will be louder and longer

during four-week testing phase


For the Chronicle
The Citrus County Sheriff's
Office is in the process of
upgrading the emergency
warning sirens.
Next week and for the next
four Fridays, Citrus County's
old and brand-new siren warn-
ing systems will undergo exten-
siye testing in the county's
coastal communities, as well as
in southwestern Levy County.
To ensure an eventual, seam-
less transition to the 40 new
siren units, the weekly tests
i-
l


will evaluate all 80 units on
March 16, 23 and 30 and April
6.
The sirens are tested every
Friday (except on holidays) at
noon. A siren test typically lasts
for 15 to 30 seconds, and no
action on the part of the public
is required in these instances.
Because both systems, totaling
80 units, will be tested simulta-
neously during the next four
weeks, the audio level may
seem unusually high to those
living or working nearby.
From Tuesday through


Saturday, the siren vendor will
be in Citrus and Levy to. sound
the new sirens individually
and in groups for short bursts.
The units' public address capa-
bility also will be tested. These
tests will be conducted during
daylight hours.
The first combined weekly
test scheduled for Friday at the
normal noontime hour will be
of longer duration. The old
siren system will stop after
about 15 seconds; however, the
new sirens will continue for a
full three minutes, just like a
real alert. Because the 80 units
will be tested at the same time,
audible levels are expected to
be louder and longer than
usual.
For the remaining three


Friday noontime tests, all 80 of
the sirens will sound for the
standard 15 to 30 seconds.
Should the area ever experi-
ence hazardous weather, an
event at the Crystal River
Nuclear Plant or any emer-
gency that threatens life or
property, the sirens will sound
continuously for three to five
minutes, letting residents know
that officials have important
information to disseminate. In
response, residents should
tune their televisions or radios
to one of the Emergency Alert
System (EAS) stations for the
latest information from emer-
gency management officials. If
protective actions are neces-
sary, residents will be provided
with these instructions as well.


The new siren warning sys-
tem was in the discussion
phase as- early as November
2005, but was only recently
installed. Through a coopera-
tive effort by Progress Energy
and the Sheriff's Office
Emergency Management
Section, 40 new state-of-the-art
sirens were positioned to
replace the existing units.
Twenty-eight sirens were
placed in Citrus County, with
the remaining 12 sirens in Levy
County.
While Progress Energy fund-
ed the purchase of all 40 sirens,
plus their maintenance costs,
for close to $1 million, the
Citrus County Sheriff's Office
actually owns and oversees the
new system.

State BRIEF

Stenographer jailed
for late transcript
FORT LAUDERDALE -A
stenographer who failed to
deliver a transcript needed for
an appeal was sentenced to jail
for contempt of court.
Circuit Judge Charles Greene
said he will release stenogra-
pherAnn Margaret Smith, 44,
when she finishes the transcript,
The Miami Herald reported.
Smith's equipment and notes
will be sent to the jail and the
Broward Sheriff's Office will pro-
vide her a place to work,
according to the judge's orders.
"You have a person in cus-
tody," Greene said. "No one can
do a thing because you don't
have a transcript."
An appeals court had asked
the judge for a transcript from
the trial of a man sentenced to
three consecutive life terms for
kidnapping a toddler from his
bed, wrapping the boy's head
with duct tape, and raping him,
Greene said. He said the appeal
can't move forward without the
transcript.
In a contempt hearing on


Feb. 9, the judge ordered Smith
to finish the transcript by Feb.
28 and not to take on any more
trials until then. She was jailed
when she failed to comply.

Residents' e-mails express frustration


Editor's note: The level of
frustration felt by residents is
illustrated in this sampling of
e-mails sent to county offi-
cials during the course of the
nearly two-year central sewer
project. A portion of one let-
ter is included with the e-
mails.

Gary Bartell
"Hi Gary, congrats. My

dirt that Danella has been

and wanted to contact you so I

try
Residents grew weary of the
endless cycle of street closings
and openings during the con-
struction project. The dumping
of crushed limerock on the
street Feb. 20 stirred up more
bad feelings.
Retired architect Harold
Seckinger said Danella left
large chunks of limerock on
Taylor Terrace, and he doubts
it was an accident.
"I'm absolutely irritated.
They left most of Taylor
Terrace covered by rock and
gravel. It's crushed rock, but
it's a large size," Seckinger
said. "I just have the feeling,
because everyone has been
upset with them, they just left it
like this."
The road has since been lev-
eled and appears ready for
paving.
Seckinger can lay claim to
one of the worst construction-
related incidents on Taylor
Terrace. His wife Sheila was
stricken by an attack of
appendicitis one morning.
The street was closed for con-
struction work. Many resi-
dents had parked their cars
and trucks on Halls River
Road a half mile away in
anticipation of the street
being closed, the Seckingers
included.
When his wife fell ill,
Seckinger was forced to row
her across the Homosassa
River in a boat to reach a ramp

native would have .been to
carry his wife on his back down
Taylor Terrace.


ficult time. We have had to
deal with disruption and
sometimes chaos. Personally
speaking, some of the damage
to my property was corrected;
however, the destroyed plants
along with some
pavers/stones at the end of-
the driveway have not been
corrected. I have lost two sago
palms, a beautiful hibiscus
and a lush honeysuckle vine
is on its last legs. And this is
just my property. Many trees
on our street have been
marred terribly.
"We are still waiting for the
last section of the road to be
repaved and do not understand
not only why it is taking so long,
but why they didn't finish it in
the first place. And the
entrance to our subdivision is a
mess, the plants are wrecked,
the road is uneven, unpaved
and we have had to deal with
mini-sinkholes."

Retired resident Robert
Castleman and his next door
neighbor Geraldine "Geri"
Lewis, a senior human
resources representative at the
Crystal River nuclear power
plant, say they have begun see-
ing settlement cracks develop
in the ceilings and walls of-
their homes. The cracks were
not present before the sewer
line construction work began.
They say the heavy construc-
tion equipment rattled and
vibrated their homes.
"I could be laying in bed and
the bed would vibrate from the
work out there," said Lewis,
who has submitted an insur-
ance claim for damage to her
home.
Castleman said he saw an
ashtray vibrating on a table one
day and tracked the source to
the heavy machinery working
on the street outside his home.
He said the sewer project
has gone on far too long. The
biggest inconvenience has
been the dust and dirt, he said.
But he has notified the county
about the settlement cracks
and has not received a satisfac-
tory answer.
He concedes the work has
been difficult for Danella.
Some of the pipeline had to be
installed in water 6 to 7 feet
deep, he said, and Taylor
Terrace is a narrow, dead-end
street. But he said there also
have been mistakes. Castle-
man, who is retired, has kept a
daily log since last July of what
happened on Taylor Terrace in
front of his home.
"It's really been a farce the
way these people are working,"
he said.
Castleman's log says work-
crews finished connecting the
sewer line to his property on
Aug. 2 last year, but broke the
pipe and spent all day repair-
ing it. He said the crews broke
the pipe again on Oct. 13, and

broke it a third time on Jan. 8
this year, repairing it the same
day
He said they also broke the
lawn sprinklers at a neighbor's
home.
"What's going on here? I
realize they have a problem
.with the water, but they've
been doing this over and over-
again. What's going on?" he
said.
Castleman said neither
Danella nor the county have
responded to his complaints
about settlement cracks in his
home. He said his last three
letters discussed the problem,
but he was ignored. Castleman
said he doesn't care who
repairs the damage, as long as
it is repaired.
Danella officials refused to
talk to the Chronicle about the
project, but they did tell a
reporter that the county's
right-of-way extends 25 feet
from either side of the center
line on Taylor Terrace. That
means some of the crushed
sprinklers may have been on
county right-of-way, even
though they were installed on
private lawns.
Danella had the legal right to
work on county right-of-way
and park its vehicles on the
right-of-way. The street right-
of-way was considered part of
the work site, and the company
controlled the work site.
The inconvenience of having
Taylor Terrace closed during
daylight hours was one of the
big complaints among resi-
dents, along with the dust and
dirt associated with having the
street torn up.
Allie and Ed Lockman said
people parked their cars on
Halls River Road during the
day to avoid being trapped in
their homes.
Lockman also questioned
the competence of Danella. He
said the company halted work


Glenn McCracken
"My patience is gone waiting
for satisfaction. My complaints
regarding damage to my prop-
erty as a result of the sewer
project have been ignored by
all.
"In mid-July, I met with
-county people regarding my
damages. This meeting was a
waste of my time and nothing
was resolved. Later that same
day, Danella came to my house
and took photos and told me it
would be turned over to their
insurance. I never heard from
them, so I contacted their corp.
headquarters on 10-6-06. On 10-
10-06, a person from Danella
came over and took additional
photos. Prior to this on 9-28-06,
I hand-carried photos with
additional damages into
Danella office. As of this writ-
ing I have not heard from any-
one.
"Citrus County Engineering
DiVision requested a list of
damages. I hand-carried the
list into the office on Sept. 19,
2006. Again, as of this email, I
am still being ignored.
'"At this time, I am requesting
something in writing by some-
one in authority that my dam-
ages be repaired before I move
on to my next step."

weather, apparently not realiz-
ing the groundwater is always

face of the street and the soils

Lockman said he blamed the
company for the approach to
the project
-.Living on a dirt road that was
once paved has been an-aggra-
vation, according to Allie
Lockman. She said their cars
are rarely free of the dirt and
dust. She said the constant irri-
tating backup warning beeps of
construction vehicles have
been an added annoyance.
Seckinger has warned the
county that the gravity sewer
line installed by Danella could
fail and allow sewage to back
up into homes along Taylor
Terrace. He wrested two con-
cessions from the county com-
mission to deal with that pos-
sibility. Commissioners reject-
ed his redesign of the sewer
on Taylor Terrace to make it
safer.
Commissioners gave resi-
dents, one year from the date
the central sewer line begins
operating to deactivate their
septic tanks. That will give
residents a year to determine
if the system works before
they actually dismantle the
tanks. The board also gave
residents permission to
install cut-off valves at their
own expense. The valves
would prevent sewage from
backing into homes if the
gravity sewer system failed
for any reason.
Seckinger, who once sup-
ported the idea of extending
central sewer into his neigh-
borhood, is now staunchly
opposed.
"I've been for the sewer all
along," Seckinger said. "My
argument is the way it's been
done; it's been a disaster from
the beginning."

Seckinger's letter warned
the any failure of the gravity
sewer line could result in
sewage backup into 17 resi-
dences, along with all the man-
holes from Marva Court to
Halls River Road. He suggest-
ed a different design for the
sewer, but the county rejected
the idea.

The original project director
also left the company. A third
superintendent is now on the
job.
Company cites issues
The company refused to talk
about the project when con-
tacted by the Chronicle, but in
a Jan. 15 letter to McCracken,
Danella Vice President John
Bass outlined some of the rea-
sons he believes the project
has been delayed.
Among other things, Bass
said Danella encountered
55,000 cubic yards of unsuit-
able soil that had to be
removed and replaced. The
company had estimated the
amount of unsuitable material
would be 8,000 cubic yards. It
used the smaller number to
calculate its bid..
Danella also encountered in
excess of 5,000 cubic yards of
limestone rock that required
removal and replacement,
Bass said.
"This excessive amount of
material has had a significant
cost and time impact on per-
formance of the contract
work," he said.
The company piled a small
mountain of excess dirt near
the entrance to Riverhaven,
resulting in complaints from
Riverhaven residents. The
dirt has been transported by
trucks to an alpaca farm off
Grover Cleveland Boulevard,


according to McCracken. The
property has an abandoned
mine pit.
McLaurin said the problem
with unsuitable dirt once
again resulted from a miscal-
culation by Danella. He said
the company discovered too
late that the limestone rock it
dug from streets could not be
reused to backfill the trench-
es. McLaurin said the rock
doesn't compact well after it
has been excavated. He said
Danella had to purchase
clean fill dirt and limestone at
its own expense from local
mines to replace what was
taken out.
Bass complained in his let-
ter that the company was
being held responsible for
conditions caused by sink-
holes and other unusual sub-
surface conditions that devel-

oped as the project wore on.
"When removal of subsur-
face items such as trees lying
on their side, pockets of debris
and unusual items resulted in
excavation required outside of
the normal trench line,
Danella has been expected to
fill and restore the entire
affected area," Bass wrote.
"All of these conditions have
occurred and have had a sig-
nificant cost and time impact
on performance of the con-
tract work."
Getting burned
McLaurin said the letter
from Bass asked the county
for a break, but he said the
company was responsible
under the terms of its con-
tract to assess the ground and
water conditions before it
started work. He said the
company made assumptions
that proved to be incorrect.
"He has every right to make
that argument, but the con-
tract says he is supposed to
look at the site," McLaurin
said. "You can't come back 18
months later and say we had a
hard time and we've never
run into these problems

before."
Bass is scheduled to meet
with McLaurin and
McCracken on March 21 to
discuss the new schedule for
the project. McLaurin said
the project won't be complet-
ed before April.
The company's tardiness
with the project has resulted
in the company being fined
$1,000 a day for liquidated
damages. The county esti-
mates more than $200,000 in
liquidated damages has
accrued, but the exact num-
ber won't be known until the
project is judged to be com-
plete.
McLaurin said Danella is
losing money on the project,
but he has no idea how much
and doesn't want to ask. He
said it would be unprofes-
sional to rub salt in the
wound. The company knows it
is losing money and there is
no point underlining the obvi-
ous.
"They made calculated
assumptions and got burned,"
McLaurin said. "It's really a
tragedy. You hate to see it
happen, and it can happen to
the best companies."

Prayer group brings Christianity to the catwalk


Associated Press

MIAMI BEACH - The bodies
at this Saturday night gathering
are sculpted, the locks of hair
full and wavy, the faces made for
the covers of magazines.
It's heavenly
Such physical perfection is a
South Beach staple, on its sandy,
sun-kissed shoreline, and in its
thumping, velvet-roped dance
clubs. But these young men and
women, blessed with camera-
ready exteriors, are here not to
find a weekend hookup or to
imbibe a $15 drink They're here
for God.
Since its 1984 founding in New
York, Models for Christ has
sought to bring faith to fashion -
spirituality and sanctity to an


industry driven by sex and self-
ishness. The non-denomination-
al organization has since
expanded to 19 other major fash-
ion centers, including Los
Angeles, London, Paris, Milan,
Tokyo. Hundreds participate.
"This work can lead anyone
away from the Lord," said
Jeremiah Johnson, a former
model who leads the group's
Miami Beach chapter "But it
doesn't have to."
About a dozen people - not
just models themselves but also
photographers and agents and
others in the industry - gather
in a circle of maroon chairs in
the simple worship space for
Calvary Chapel Miami Beach.
They sing church songs, read
from bright blue paperback


Bibles and share their struggles
of remaining Christian in the
fashion business.
Most come dressed casually in
jeans and T-shirts. They are as
young as 17 and come from all
parts of the country during the
peak season for modeling work
They bow their heads in prayer
Many talk about their bound-
aries - refusing to do overtly
sexual advertisements, or those
for alcohol and cigarettes. But
they also talk about resisting a
professional culture they feel
often encourages rampant par-
tying and sex.
"There's a lot of pressure to
do the alcohol ad or get in your
underwear or do whatever pub-
lication you don't want to do.
But we don't need to bow down


in order to be blessed in what
we do," said Roman Watson, a
29-year-old model who has
done work for Ralph Lauren,
Nike and Macys. "I want to
encourage everyone to be a
Christian first and a model sec-
ond."
Watson said models are often
afraid to reveal their moral
boundaries on shoots for fear
that it could end their careers.
But he urged those gathered at
Models for Christ to follow their
hearts and they would ultimate-
ly be rewarded with work

State supreme court rejects

disabled man's drug appeal


Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE - The Flori-
da Supreme Court will not hear
an appeal by a wheelchair-bound
man convicted of drug trafficking
for obtaining large amounts of
prescription drugs he said were
to control severe pain.
Richard Paey, now serving a
25-year minimum mandatory
prison sentence, had previously
said an appellate court misap-
plied the state's drug trafficking
law when it upheld his convic-
tion in December, even though

Gage didn't show for that inter-
view. His office then scheduled
another interview for the after-
noon of March 7 at his place of
business, but Gage didn't show
up. He did not return several
phone messages left at his
office.
Two customers filed com-
plaints with the Citrus County
Sheriff s Office after they
received notices of lien from
subcontractors or suppliers.
Sheriff's spokeswoman Gail
Tierney said a detective's
investigation includes review-
ing Gage's bank records to
determine what he did with
payments received by cus-
tomers.
County records show sub-
contractors or suppliers have
liens against eight Gage cus-
tomers in Citrus County. Most
total less than $30,000 per cus-
tomer.
James Faircloth of Hudson
contracted with Gage in July to
build a $359,547 home on
Emerald Terrace in Lecanto,
county records show. Faircloth,


there was no evidence he ever
sold or distributed the pain-
killers.
The state Supreme Court
announced Friday it would not
hear the case.
A former lawyer and father of
three, Paey injured his back in a
1985 car crash and suffers from
multiple sclerosis. He said only
large amounts of strong narcotics
calmed his pain.
Prosecutors alleged that using
forged prescriptions to obtain so
many pills meant he had to be
selling them.


who was the first to make a
complaint to the sheriff's
office, has four liens on the
house; the most recent county
inspection on the construction
was Jan. 22, according to the
Citrus County Building
Division Web page.
Faircloth declined to com-
ment for this story.
Most of the Gage homes in
question are valued in the mid-
$200,000 to high-$300,000
range. The contract on Philip
Bomhoff's ranch house on
County Road 491 in Lecanto is
$679,097, according to county
records.
Bomhoff, a Brooksville attor-
ney, said several subcontrac-
tors and suppliers told him
that Gage hasn't paid them,
although they haven't filed for-
mal court liens.
"The first inkling of trouble
was in August when the
framers came to the house and
said their checks from Gage
had bounced," Bomhoff said.
In the Feb. 21 interview,
Gage suggested he had the
resources to pay the liens off
quickly.
"I have the capacity," he
said, " of getting a hundred
grand pretty fast."

Bill would toughen predators' sentences


Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE - During a
month of online conversations
with a 12-year-old girl, the mid-
dle-aged man asks personal
questions and grooms her into
feeling comfortable with him.
He arranges to meet her in a
mall parking lot for sex. But
when the man drives up, police
pounce - the 12-year-old girl
was actually a law enforcement
agent
It may seem like a crime wor-
thy of a decade or more in
prison, but current Florida law
only allows a predator who
travels to meet a minor for sex
to be charged, if no contact
occurs, with online solicitation
- a third-degree felony pun-
ishable by up to five years in
prison.
"We don't have any greater
punishment for that, and that's
not very much of a comfort,"
said Attorney General Bill
McCollum, who is pushing to
change the law. "But for our
intervention, you are right on
the cusp of doing something
horrendous."
The Legislature is on the
verge of passing a bill that


would make traveling
to meet a minor for sex
after initiating contact
on the Internet a sec-
ond-degree felony, pun-
ishable by up to 15
years in prison. By also
increasing penalties for
the possession and dis-
tribution of child
pornography, the legis-
lation would severely
punish offenders at


Bill
McCollum
attorney
general.


every step of their transforma-
tion from voyeur to predator:
It would also allow every
online conversation to be treat-
ed as a separate crime, and
would require sexual preda-
tors to register their e-mail
addresses and instant messag-
ing names with authorities.
That information would then
be provided to the social net-
working sites, such as
MySpace.com, that have
become so popular with chil-
dren in the last few years. The
bill is all-but-certain to become
law in the coming weeks after
the House and Senate work out
a technical difference.
All states can classify the
online enticement of a minor
as a felony, according to the


National Center for
Missing and Exploited
Children. Currently,
Florida is one of 19
states that enable
judges to sentence
offenders to less than a
year in prison. Its five-
year maximum penalty
is less than many other
states, and the federal
statute requires a mini-
mum of 10 years in


prison.
Florida is charting relatively
new ground by creating the
new crime of traveling to meet
a minor
"It's probably one of the most
intelligent ways to tackle the
problem," said Charles Rose, a
professor at Stetson University
College of Law, who recalled
only Texas as having a similar
measure. "The goal by doing
that is if you make every step of
the process criminal activity,
you hope it deters people, and
if it doesn't deter, it allows you
to punish at a greater level."
The new law would enable
offenders to be punished
severely for their demonstrat-
ed intent without actual con-
tact with a child. It also pro-


vides for a more severe penalty
if there isn't enough evidence
to prove a crime such as
attempted sexual assault
The impetus behind the bill
comes from the publicity sur-
rounding shows like Dateline
NBC's "To Catch a Predator,"
Rose said. The network teams
up with law enforcement in
exposing a predator who has
traveled to the home of a minor
after initiating contact online.
Maureen Horkan, director of
Florida's child predator cyber-
crime unit in Jacksonville, told
lawmakers during the commit-
tee process of an example
where she was almost ham-
strung by current law.
Authorities were tracking a
man in Jacksonville who was
using a public library comput-
er to chat online with what he
thought was a 13-year-old girl.
After two online conversations,
Horkan said, the man arranged


to meet the girl. When he
showed up, he had a hunting
knife between his car's front
seats. Because the man turned
out to be a seven-time convict-
ed felon from New York,
Horkan said she was able to get
him a long prison sentence.
But without that criminal
history, she would have only
been able to charge him under
the existing solicitation law at
a maximum of five years in
prison.
"He would have had to take
action (to receive more)," said
Horkan, who told lawmakers
she had no doubt that the man's
intention was to harm. the
child.
But the new penalty might
have a similar glitch to other
legislation combatting sexual
predators - it may entangle
people it wasn't designed to
catch.
Unlike some other states,


Florida's existing online solici-
tation law, as well as the new
measure set to be passed, do
not provide penalties or guide-
lines specific to victims or per-
petrators of certain ages. The
spirit of the law is to catch
predators preying on young
children, not the 18-year-old
having a consensual conversa-
tion with, or traveling to the
home of, a 16-year-old.
"That's always the danger
with dealing with crimes, of
human sexuality," Rose said.
"These particular crimes are
so emotionally charged, that
they can lead to abuses on the
part of the government."
How Florida's law is imple-
mented will depend on the dis-
cretion of the prosecutor.
"We're adjusting to the
impact that the change in tech-
nology has had on the ability of
offenders to acquire victims,"
Rose said.

Black Washingtonians make chess their own


The Washington Post
WASHINGTON - It's 9
o'clock on a Fliday night at a
Starbucks in Forestville, Md.,
and Robb Peterbark is glaring
across the chessboard at his
opponent
"You better take Barbaro
while you got the chance. If not,
he's gonna get you," Peterbark
snarls, referring to a knight he
has named after the Kentucky
Derby winner
Across the board, Dwight
Dawson frowns as he contem-
plates his next move.
'"This game was supposed to
be over a half-hour go,"
Peterbark exclaims, sighing
loudly. "Can I get you to consider
making this move sometime
today? How about just sometime
this side of eternity?"
Dawson snatches up the
knight Peterbark grabs his
chest
"You took Barbaro!" he said.
"That's all right! Secretariat is
still gonna get you!"
It's three hours into the
Forestville Chess Club's weekly
chess binge that starts every
Friday afternoon at Starbucks,
then moves down the block to
the International House of
Pancakes, where players com-
pete until sunup. It picks up the
next afternoon at Borders book-
store in Largo, Md., often fol-
lowed by hours playing at one
another's homes.
Many consider the
Washington area a hub of black
chess: Two of the first African
American men to achieve the
rank of chess master came from
here, and Dupont Circle offers a
classic chess scene, with players
ringing the park and men in suits
competing with street hustlers.
Thousands more gather to play


from Potomac Mills to Anacostia
to Columbia Mall. It's not Bobby
Fischer's brand, either
"Black chess is not like
European chess, where every-
body sits there all quiet and
doesn't say anything," said play-
er Nathan Saunders, 42, general
vice president of the Washington
Teachers Union. "Black folks
talk trash. You gotta have that
sass to go along with the game.
As a matter of fact, a lot of guys
will ask each other as they sit
down, 'Are we going to play
European chess or chess from
the .'hood?'"
Many of them play speed
chess - on a timer - and bet
"That's how a lot of the park
players make their living," said
Eugene Brown, 60, founder of
the Big Chair Chess Club in
Deanwood, Md. "They call it
'fishing in the park"
It's not lost on some players
that white moves first, Brown
said; in fact, it's a life lesson.
"You've got to take the initia-
tive, no matter that someone else
has it first," said Brown, who is
producing a documentary on the
region's black chess scene. 'All
that 'white moves first, white
people do this and white people
do that' - that is only an excuse,
and if you give a chess player an
excuse, they are more likely to
fail. That's the same in life."
Whether drawn by the philo-
sophical or by the pure strategic
challenge of the game, the play-
ers are as varied as the venues.
The Forestville and Largo clubs
have teachers, IT specialists,
musicians, business owners and
a court commissioner Despite
his busy schedule in Annapolis,
State Sen. Ulysses Currie turned
out for a Saturday game at
Borders.

U.S. and Iran join in Iraq talks

In a row

security conference, while the country's Foreign Minister Hoshyar
Zebari looks on Saturday in Baghdad, Iraq.


Climate


report


bears

warning


Associated Press

WASHINGTON - The harm-
ful effects of global warming on
daily life are already showing
up, and within a couple of
decades hundreds of millions of
people won't have enough water,
top scientists will say next
month at a meeting in Belgium.
At the same time, tens of mil-
lions of others will be flooded
out of their homes each year as
the Earth reels from rising tem-
peratures and sea levels,
according to portions of a draft
of an international scientific
report obtained by The
Associated Press.
Tropical diseases like malar-
ia will spread. By 2050, polar
bears will mostly be fouid in
zoos, their habitats gone. Pests
like fire ants will thrive.
For a time, food will be plenti-
ful because of the longer grow-
ing season in northern regions.
But by 2080, hundreds of mil-
lions of people could face star-
vation, according to the report,
which is still being revised.
The draft document by
the authoritative Inter-
governmental Panel on Climate
Change focuses on global warm-
ing's effects and is the second in
a series of four being issued this
year Written and reviewed by
more than 1,000 scientists from
dozens of countries, it still must
be edited by government offi-
cials.
But some scientists said the
overall message is not likely to
change when it's issued in early
April in Brussels, the same city
where European Union leaders
agreed this past week to drasti-
cally cut greenhouse gas emis-
sions by 2020. Their plan will be
presented to rPresident Bush
and other world leaders at a
summit in June.
The report offers some hope if
nations slow and then reduce
their greenhouse gas emissions,
but it notes that what's happen-
ing now isn't encouraging.
"Changes in climate are now
affecting physical and biological
systems on every continent," the
report says, in marked contrast
to a 2001 report by the same
international group that said the
effects of global warming were
coming. But that report only
mentioned scattered regional
effects.

BAGHDAD - In their first
direct talks since the Iraq war
began, U.S. and Iranian envoys
traded harsh words and blamed
each other for the country's cri-
sis Saturday at a one-day inter-
national conference that some
hoped would help end their 27-
year diplomatic freeze.
Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-
Maliki opened the conference
with an appeal for all partici-
pants to help ease his country's
plight and prevent the violent
conflict here from spilling over
into the entire Middle East
But the conference under-
scored the wide gulf between
American and Iranian views
about the nature of the crisis and


the ways to end it
During the talks, U.S. envoy
David Satterfield pointed to his
briefcase which he said con-
tained documents proving Iran
was arming Shiite Muslim mili-
tias in Iraq.
"Your accusations are merely
a cover for your failures in Iraq,"
Iran's chief envoy Abbas
Araghchi shot back, according to
an official familiar to the discus-
sions who spoke on condition of
anonymity because he was not
authorized to release the infor-
mation.
The U.S. ambassador to Iraq,
Zalmay Khalilzad, only said that
American delegates exchanged
views with the Iranians "directly
and in the presence of others"
during talks, which he described


as "constructive and busi-
nesslike."
But Labid Abbawi, a senior
Iraqi Foreign Ministry official
who attended the meeting, con-
firmed that an argument broke
out between the Iranian and
American envoys. He would not
elaborate.
Before the talks, U.S. officials
said the Baghdad conference
would allow all sides to spell out
their positions frankly and pave
the way for more substantive dis-
cussions on resolving the Iraq
crisis.
Al-Maliki, a Shiite, appealed
for international help to sever
networks aiding extremists and
warned that Iraq's growing sec-
tarian bloodshed could spill
across the Middle East

Struggle to ensure public spending is


helping U.S. prepare for bioterrorism


Associated Press

WASHINGTON - More than five years
after the Sept 11 attacks, the government
cannot show how the $5 billion given to
public health departments has better pre-
pared the country for a bioterrorism
attack or flu pandemic.
Congress responded to the 2001 strikes
and anthrax-tainted letters sent to law-
makers by putting much more money
toward emergency preparedness. State
health departments typically get tens of
millions of dollars per year to prepare for
bioterrorism; it was in the hundreds of
thousands before Sept 11.
The money came with a catch:
Washington had to set criteria to evaluate
how well the dollars were spent That
assignment fell to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, which has strug-
gled with the task
"We're not able to demonstrate
accountability," said Craig Thomas, chief
of the CDC office that evaluates and mon-
itors public health departments. "It's not
just accountability to the CDC. It's
accountability to your community. It's
accountability to your local stakeholders
and the people who fund you as well."
Thomas was speaking to public health
leaders at a recent conference in
Washington. His candid assessment does
not mean local departments have squan-
dered the money Indeed, health- officials


say the departments are much better able
to respond to major threats than they
were five years to 10 years ago.

Mexican president says threats won't stop drug crackdown


Associated Press

MEXICO CITY - Mexican
President Felipe Calderon
said Saturday that drug traf-
fickers' threats against his gov-
ernment would not stop a mili-
tary crackdown against them,
and he demanded that the
United States do more to fight
the sale and consumption of
drugs domestically
In an exclusive interview
with The Associated Press
aboard his presidential plane,
Calderon said he would push
President Bush to respect
migrant rights and do more


against drugs in the U.S. when
the two meet on Tuesday in the
colonial city ofMerida, Mexico.
"We are, at the end of the day,
putting our lives on the line in
this battle, and the United
States has to come up with
something that is more than
symbolic gestures, much
more," Calderon said.
Calderon said members of
the federal government have
received threats from traffick-
ers.
"There have been a lot of
threats - whether they have
been false or real - but they
won't stop us from taking


action," he said, returning from
a visit to southern Chiapas
state, where he celebrated his
first 100 days in office.
Since taking office on Dec. 1,
Calderon has sent thousands of
troops and federal police to
areas controlled by drug traf-
fickers, including Mexican
cities along the U.S. border, his
home state of Michoacan, and
the Pacific coast resort of
Acapulco.
He also began extraditing
major drug lords to face justice
north of the border, something
that the United States had
urged Mexico to do for years.

ors returning to closets and the emer-
gence of the bright, sunshine colors that
are so typical of our Florida lifestyle.
Which leads us to mention one of the
biggest upcoming events for

Kaylor's management Newcomer mod-
els will show new fashion trends and
colors, as well as new clothing lines and
sizes now available at the boutique.
La Ti Da, under Kaylor's direction,
has begun to change the type of clothing
the boutique carries. One of the newest
introductions at La Ti Da is petite fash-
ion sizes for those of "diminutive stature
and sizes to women's 16. Overall, the
styles in the shop have become more
"dressy casual" in nature and less
"trendy" "Special Occasion" clothing is
also available. We are looking forward


to seeing what the new fashions and col-
ors for spring 2007 will be.
This month, Citrus Newcomers Club
had its New Member Coffee, inviting 50

RUTH A. HAWN
Special to the Chronicle
In October 2005, the
Homosassa River Garden Club
chose Stage Stand Cemetery as
its community project and had
several meetings with Brad
Thorpe, director of Citrus
County Department of
Community Services, and Bob
Glancy of Parks and
Recreation. They listened to
the ideas and worked with the
club to make this beautifica-
tion project happen.
The Homosassa River
Garden Club has been in exis-
tence for 25 years and has done
many community projects in
that time. The HRGC applied
for a grant from the Principal
Financial group, and in
January 2006, was awarded a
$500 matching grant. On
Florida Arbor Day 2006, the
club planted two magnolias in
the entry area. On Earth Day
2006, it held a community
cleanup. HRGC planted 45
Knock Out roses along the
entrance fence, cleared brush,
trimmed trees, weeded and
repaired three benches. The


club has now planted two trees
at the entrance and a garden
around the flagpole. The gar-
den will also have a historical
plaque telling about the ceme-
tery. With the county's help, an
irrigation system waters the
gardens and the flag is lit at
night, traveling along U.S. 19 in
Homosassa.
Stage Stand Cemetery is
traced to the times when stage
coaches delivered the mail.
Many early settlers were
buried here and family plots
still exist and are used. HRGC
invites you to visit the ceme-
tery; much history can be
learned from reading the
markers, which includes veter-
ans of many wars and fisher-
men whose livelihoods
depended on the catches from
the rivers and Gulf of Mexico.
The club will now move to
Phase 2 of the project, the
cemetery itself. It plans to
plant trees and shrubs and add
benches to this area.
HRGC thanks Brad Thorpe,
Bob Glancy and Rick Sims; the
partnership with the county
has led to wonderful results


and more to come with Phase
2. Thanks also go to Jim Evans,
Evans Nursery, Massimo and
Home Depot of Crystal River,
Wal-Mart, Sweetwater Homes,
Helen's Nursery, Boy Scout
Troop; 302 of Inverness, Gary
Maidhof, American Legion
Post 155 of Crystal River,
Homosassa Springs Wildlife
State Park, Jamie Brown
Landscaping, husbands and
friends, and last but not least
Garden Angels - private citi-
zens who have given their
approval and donations to help
the project.
Saturday, March 31, at 9 a.m.
is a community cleanup of the
cemetery - planting, trimming
and weeding. Bring gardening
tools and join the HRGC.
The club welcomes informa-
tion and comments about the
cemetery. Send to Homosassa
River Garden Club, PO. Box
4293, Homosassa, FL 34447-
4293.
Ruth Hawn and Mim
Brockett are the Civic
Development co-chairwomen
of the Homosassa River
Garden Club.

TRAVEL CirRus COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


On the road in Cameroon *


After we took our baby
steps into "the real
Africa," we were
deemed ready to go deeper. We
hit the road (or what
passes for one) on
the-road to Kumba.
A sad fact of life .
in'Cameroon is that
if:a road is of no
economic impor-
tance, such as the
road from the refin-
ery or to the tourist
area, chances are
that it has been neg- Anne
elected. Seriously In MEM
a tropical climate OF A 1
where it rains heav-
ily eight months a COUN
year, it is hard to
keep a road in good shape.
Many of the roads into the vil-
lages are not even paved, or
tarred, as they refer to it.
We ventured onto the infa-
mous "Buea Road" which is a


IF


Is


major road through the
province. It appeared to be
paved in some places, and cov-
ered with crushed limestone in
others, but mostly it
was rut after pot-
hole. One of the
questions we get
asked is which side
.... Is of the road they
Drive on? Our
' answer is "yes." The
drivers weave from
one side of the road
to the other, trying
Fusillo to avoid the worst of
OIRS the holes. A four-
RAVEL wheel drive is a
EL necessity, and every
�ELOR car goes slow. After
several days of trav-
eling through the country, we
realized that distances are not
measured in miles or kilome-
ters, but rather, in time. How
far is it to Kumba? About three
hours.


A more agile travel option is
a light motorcycle. These not
only are a cheaper form of get-
ting around, but also a major
form. of public transportation.
In the towns and cities, they
share services with taxi cabs,
but in the more rural areas,
they are the major vehicles for
hire. It's not unusual to see one
with two passengers and bun-
dles zipping around the cars.
With older ladies on the back!
And if you haven't guessed, hel-
mets are virtually non-existent
For longer trips, there are jit-
ney buses. They run from town
to town with no strict schedule.
In the larger towns, the driver
might wait until the vehicle is
full to make it worth his while.
It doesn't really matter. Time
itself is a different concept in
Cameroon. Things happen
when they happen there. We
soon realized that we rarely
were where we said we'd be at


the time promised. No prob-
lem, we're on Cameroon time.
No stress.
Of course the most common
form of transportation is by
foot. The Cameroonian people
can walk miles either barefoot
or in sandaled feet with babies
on their backs and heavy pack-
ages on their heads. That is the
major way they get their goods
home from the markets, which
seem to line every major road.
They look mystified when
asked if they get tired or hot.
That is the way they live; chil-
dren grow up walking miles to
school, women to market, men
to get supplies. We heard sto-
ries of how in the past Father
George's credibility rose
markedly during construction
at a new parish he was assist-
ing. When he grabbed some
boards, loaded them on his
head, and headed uphill, the
villagers cheered, and went to

work alongside him.
We finally arrived Kumba, a
large town on the other side of
Mt Cameroon. You don't recall
us talking about Mount
Cameroon, the second largest
peak in sub-Saharan (south of
the Sahara Desert) Africa, and
an active volcano to boot? Well,
it was easy for us to forget
because we never saw it! We
once spied the outline of a foot
hill, but due to the heavy haze,
it was simply not visible all the
time we were there. But we
saw it on a map, so we trust
' they are not pulling our legs.
Kumba is where we would


establish a second headquar-
ters at St. Francis College. We
took several trips out from
there, as well as enjoyed a cel-
ebration of excellence to honor
the retired teachers of the dio-
cese. More about that next

Today HOROSCOPE


Your Birthday: Your financial
prospects look quite encouraging
and hopeful in the year ahead.
However, ironically, enterprises that
initially might not appear to be too
hopeful could end up yielding the
greatest returns. Don't:dismiss
anything.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) - It
appears you may get an opportuni-
ty to recoup your losses in a matter
that didn't work out too well for you
recently. This time, make the right
moves so that you come out
ahead.
Aries (March 21-April 19).- A
close friend could have some
inside information you're seeking,
but might feel he or she must hold
it back from you, thinking you may
not take it too well. Even if that's
so, it still would help you.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) -
Rather than attempt to follow the
way another does something,
operate in ways that come instinc-
tively to you. You'll have far greater
success doing things in your own
manner.


Gemini (May 21-June 20) -
You may discover persons who
have old memories of some things
you'd hoped they had forgotten.
You can make up for past ills by
operating at your best.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) -
Multiple responsibilities dumped in
your lap might be more than you
desire to, but once you get into
them, you'll be able to handle sev-
eral projects simultaneously and do
a bang-up job.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) - It's all
a matter of attitude: If you
approach learning with the frame
of mind that it is fun and valuable,
it'll be a pleasant experience, and
knowledge acquired now could
have an instant use.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - You
might put out only nominal effort on
projects that matter to you person-
ally, but when it comes to things
that would benefit loved ones, your
input will be much more vigorous
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - One
of your greatest assets is your abil-
ity to be able to smooth over condi-


tions that are a bit testy to others.
You may find more uses for this
natural talent than you would like.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -
Your normal channels of revenue
might yield greater returns than
usual. However, this is not a good
enough reason to go out and blow
the money on frivolous spending.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
- Although you may prefer things
to be different, projects or situa-
tions that require a fair amount of
tenacity and boldness are likely to
be the ones you'll perform the best
at this time.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -
Situations that require confidentiali-
ty must be respected and protect-
ed at all cost. Should you let some-
thing slip out that shouldn't, it could
cause a great deal of trouble.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -
Conversational exchanges could
turn out to be extremely beneficial,
because even if you hear some-
thing distasteful, what you learn
can turn out to be of great value in
the long run.

Meryl Streep is a pussycat


Meryl Streep nearly got an Academy
Award this year for playing a willful,
demanding boss who rules her fashion
magazine domain with an iron fist in "The Devil
Wears Prada." Many reviewers called her the
"boss from Hell" or the "world's worst boss." In
the movie, she makes employees pick
up her dry cleaning and deliver it to
her house at 10 p.m. She calls her
assistant at night and on weekends.
She changes long-set schedules at the
last minute. Bad boss? Nightmare
boss? Hardly She's a cupcake com-
pared to many of the bosses who've
fired me.
I walked past an editor's desk years
ago while he was screaming into the
phone, swearing oath upon oath, his J
face contorted in rage. I'd been on the MUI
receiving end of that phone call more
than once and had nothing but pity
for the poor miserable victim on the other end
of that line. The last thing he screamed before
he slammed down the phone was, "If you ever
call here again, I'll come over there and stick my
fist down your mouth and pull your heart out
through your throat!"
"Who was that?" I whispered to his secretary.
"His Mom," she whispered back I went back
to my desk and started updating my resume.
In "The Devil Wears Prada," Streep expects
her assistants to bring her coffee morning, noon
and night This is how we know she is evil.
Apparently, it's OK for waiters and waitresses to
bring you coffee and for airline attendants to
bring you coffee and for the host of a dinner
party to bring you coffee, but if you ask your 22-

year-old, clueless assistant on her first job to get
you coffee, you are Satan's evil twin.
"What do you think I am, some kind of ser-
vant?" Well ... yes. I had one boss who hired an
assistant just to fill out his extensive expense
account reports. Because every moment he
spent doing his expense account was
a minute he could not be out spend-
ing even more of the company's
money. The entire time I worked for
him, I never filed one expense
report. It was highly discouraged.
They eventually had an Enron
moment, but Mr. Expense Account
landed another job the same day All
the business lunches he had expens-
ing had been job interviews with
M other companies.
LEN One division head I worked for
would leave the office for lunch and
loudly tell his secretary that he'd be
back at 1:30. At 1:30 he'd call her and say he'd be
back at 2:30. At 3, he'd call and schedule a
department head meeting for 4:15. At 4:30 he'd
call and say he was tied up and reschedule the
meeting for tomorrow morning at 9. He usually
pulled this stunt on Friday afternoons, but
sometimes he'd do it on other days of the week.
And every now and then, he really would come
back to the office. Because his employees
believed he was coming back, he kept the entire
office from slacking off, even though he was
gone for the day. It was always an Academy
Award performance.

Talk to brother before



reporting to authorities


ear Annie: For a year, my brother has
lived with a girl I think is underage.
"Eydie" looks like she's 14, and she has a
ar-old who also lives with them. My brother
vague about how they met - not sure
other it was at a video store or cof-
house. Eydie, too, seems unclear,
ch makes me think something is ' .

y brother is wealthy, and his
le is luxurious. He treats the baby
his own, and I wonder if he's
ig Eydie as his bed partner in
Lange for giving her a roof over
head. From what he says, the
y isn't his, but it looks a lot like
family. I get the distinct feeling
got this underage girl pregnant,
ed her into his house, and pre- ANN
s it's not his baby to avoid trou- MAIL
with the law. Should I report
? To whom? They do seem per-
y happy --N.Y. Sister
ear N.Y.: Let us start by saying that a girl
looks 14 could easily be 18, or even 22. You
e no way of knowing, just as you don't know
er toddler is a blood relative, no matter the
mblance. Your brother may have met Eydie,
at a strip club, which could be one reason
are "vague" about the circumstances.
ill, the situation may not be totally benign. If
.e is indeed underage, you have an obliga-
to speak up. You can report your suspicions
le police, who may or may not choose to do
investigation, but we think you should first
coach your brother and tell him of your con-
s. Make sure he is aware of the state law
rding underage girls. You might also speak
ydie and see if you can glean any additional
rmation.
ear Annie: My son was married last year.
y of our friends hosted showers for the
e. His wife's family put out tons of money,
the wedding was extraordinary.
nce the wedding, numerous people have
ed to ask whether the newlyweds received
r wedding gifts. We found out no thank-you
s were sent to anyone (including us). We
asked our son to write the notes, but he
his wife thinks it would be "tacky" at this


late date. We think the truth is, they're just too
lazy
How long after receiving a wedding gift is it
too late to send a thank-you note? Is it inappro-
priate for the husband's parents to send a thank-
you note? Our daughter-in-law talks
, a lot about who has class and who
doesn't We think failing to send out
thank-you notes is insulting to those
who did so much for them. What do
you think? - P. in Pennsylvania
Dear P.: While thank-you notes
should be sent as soon as possible, it
is better to write them a year late
than not at all. Your son and his wife
are extremely rude to ignore the
thoughtfulness of others. Do not
write the notes for them, but when
NIE'S your friends ask if the gifts were
BOX received, be sure to give them your
son's phone number so they can ask
him directly. (For shame.)
Dear Annie: When I received my report card,
I got straight As, while my friends earned grades
that were a lot lower. The problem is, I'm
embarrassed to show my report card to people,
because I'm afraid they're going to think I'm a
nerd or a smart aleck Any idea of how to help a
13-year-old girl gain confidence to show off her
grades? (Well, you know what I. mean.) -
Embarrassed by a Good Thing
Dear Embarrassed: You should be really
proud of yourself, but actually, it's not good man-
ners to show your grades to anyone but your
family. If friends ask how you did, just say,
"Fine," and change the subject You only tell
them more if they insist, and then only reluc-
tantly, so they can't accuse you of showing off.

Gators cruise into SEC final


Arkansas takes down

Mississippi St, 81-72

Associated Press
ATLANTA - They stayed in school
because there were more champi-
onships to be won. Now, Florida's jun-
iors are one victory away from a
three-peat at the Southeastern
Conference tournament.
Corey Brewer scored 22 points, Lee
Humphrey added 17 and the sixth-
ranked Gators put on another domi-
nating display to beat Mississippi 80-


59 in the SEC semifinals Saturday.
Florida (28-5) jumped out to a quick
11-point lead and was never seriously
challenged by the Rebels (20-12), who
likely cost themselves a chance to slip
into the NCAA field.
After winning the national champi-
onship last season, Gator stars
Brewer, Al Horford and Joakim Noah
were projected as first-round NBA
draft picks. Instead, they defied
expectations by returning together for
their junior season.
"Here's a group of kids that chose
the University of Florida, one anoth-
er, playing with each other, and hap-
piness over all the materialistic
things that are out there," coach Billy


Donovan said. "To me, it's an unbe-
lievable story. Personally, I don't think
it's been told enough."
Florida has won its first two games
in the tournament by an average of 19
points to reach its fourth straight SEC
final. The Gators won the last two
championships and have a chance to
be the first team since Kentucky in
1997-99 to win three straight tourna-
ment titles.
"I think we play our best basketball
when tournament season starts,"
Brewer said.
Florida advanced to play Arkansas
in Sunday's championship game. The

With players making chatter in the
dugout and the crowd exhorting its
team to a win, it was hard to imagine
you were at a Lecanto baseball game.
But there both things were
Saturday night against Belleview in a
District 4A-6 matchup and the home
team didn't.disappoint, pulling out a
come-from-behind 4-3 victory in eight
innings.
Stephen Lofaro's fielder's choice
with one out, scored Patrick Meseroll
and proved to be the decid-
Si rig blow for the Panthers
in a back-and-forth
Contest.
SLecanto is now 2-6
overall and 1-5 in district
while Belleview fell to 6-2 and 2-2.
"Obviously, it feels good," said
Panthers coach Jim Manos. "But we
have to continue to get better and bet-
ter."
Meseroll led'dff with a walk, Nate
Richards' sacrifice bunt was mis-
played and John Crabtree was issued
an intentional walk to load the bases
with no outs.
After a strikeout, Lofaro strolled up
to the plate and hammered a 2-1 offer-
ing from Belleview pitcher Nick
Radkowski into the ground -to first
base.
Jake Sivola fielded the ball to get
the out at first, but his return throw
home wasn't in time as Meseroll slid
in to end the game.
Meseroll in particular sparked the
Panthers' offense, going 2-for-4 with a
double, home run, three runs scored
and an RBI while playing errorless
defense at shortstop.
"We worked too hard tonight to
come up short," Meseroll said. "It's
going to set the tone for the rest of the
season for sure."
Pitcher Jon Barr gave an equally
important effort on the mound for
Lecanto, tossing seven innings -of
three-hit ball.
Barr struck out six while walking
two, hitting three batters and giving
up three runs.
While that line may not seem all
that impressive, Barr kept the
Rattlers off-balance for the first five
innings and, for the most part, wasn't
hit hard.

Pirates' Rash throws


no-hitter in 1-0 victory


JON-MICHAEL SORACCHI
jmsoracchi@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
In a rare Saturday afternoon soft-
ball game, Cassidy Rash smiled,
laughed and generally looked to be
having a good time in the pitcher's
circle.
In contrast, Belleview, Rash's oppo-
nent, wasn't having any fun at all.
The Crystal River junior hurler
overpowered the Rattlers with 10
strikeouts and, more importantly, no
hits over the course of a dominating 1-
0 Pirates victory in 55 minutes during
District 4A-6 action.
"I felt really comfortable because I
put in the work beforehand," said
Rash of her second career no-hitter
"We had a good workout on Friday to
< get ready for this game."
Crystal River improved to 9-3 over-
all and is now 7-0 in district play;
Belleview dropped to 8-4 and 5-3. The


Pirates swept the regular season
against the Rattlers.
Rash also scored the game's only
run after tripling and coming home
on batterymate Quincy Wilson's RBI
single in the fourth inning.
"We played good ball," said Crystal
River coach Justin Wentworth. "We
didn't have any mental breakdowns."
For three-and-a-half innings it was
conceivable that the two teams would
be there all day.
Rash and her Belleview counter-
part Montanna McKibbin each baf-
fled the opposing batters but after the
Rattler batters went three up, three
down in the fourth, Crystal River
finally provided some offensive high-
lights.
And it was fitting, perhaps, that
Rash would be the one to break up
McKibbin's no-hit bid.
McKibbin quickly set down the first
two batters she faced. Yet, with two

Calcavecchia ties record round in PODS


Associated Press
Mark Calcavecchia pumps his fist after
making a birdie on the 18th green dur-
ing the third round of the PODS
Championship golf tournament
Saturday in Palm Harbor.


Associated Press
PALM HARBOR - Mark
Calcavecchia felt confident about his
game and fell in love with his putter.
That's a rare combination for him, so
he had a hunch that Saturday would
bring him a good round in the PODS
Championship.
He never could have imagined this..
The 46-year-old Calcavecchia made
10 birdies and tied the Copperhead
course record at Innisbrook with a 9-
under 62, going from the middle of the
pack to a share of the lead with Heath
Slocum, who birdied the last hole for
a 67.
KJ. Choi shot 67 and was another
shot behind.
"I don't see any reason why I can't
finish it off," Calcavecchia said.
After the way his week started, it
was still hard to believe he was in this
position.
Coming off a missed cut at the
Honda Classic, Calcavecchia opened
with a 75 by taking 36 putts, then
packed his bags that evening expect-
ing to miss the cut But he tried out a


new putter that he bought over the
weekend - that's right, he paid for it
himself - and has been knocking in
putts from everywhere.
He has taken only 46 putts over the
last two days, and he finished the
third round strong.
Calcavecchia hit a 3-iron into about
6 feet on the par-3 17th, then hit a
sweeping hooking with a 7-iron out of
a fairway bunker on the 18th and
made a 20-foot birdie to tie the course
record set by Jeff Sluman in the first
round in 2004.
He and Slocum were at 9-under 204,
but there work was far from finished.
Five players were within three shots
of the lead, including Lucas Glover
(67) and Chris DiMarco (69), and a
dozen others were within five shots.

ACC tourney final set in Tampa


IVA rw ein/an rBoston CA lke -Cinderella N. C State rides into fina


, Associated Press
TAMPA - Roy Williams
. angrily pounded the scorer's
table hoping to get the atten-
tion of his players - not the ref-
eree.
North Carolina never trailed
Saturday during their 71-56 vic-
t1 ,,Wry. over Boston College in the
, sefinals of the Atlantic Coast
.,nfie.xnce tournament. But
Williams is never content when
, TeTar, Heels are playing slop-
Evenv with a big lead.
"I hit it with my hand. The
referee told me I couldn't do
that I said, 'I'm not mad at you.
You know that,"' Williams said
after North Carolina moved a
step closer to its first ACC tour-
nament title in nine years.
"He said, 'But the percep-
tion.' I said, 'You don't referee
on perception. There's 8,000
people at least that think you
make a mistake on every call."'
Williams said he was upset
because of a miscommunica-
tion on the Tar Heels bench.
One possession after taking a
bad shot, the team nearly didn't
get. a shot off because coaches
f"',-�lwre screaming and a play call
',x wasn't heard.
i- ; lThat's about all the Tar Heels
,"-sdid wrong.
*" - Brandan Wright scored 20
':!M'points 'on -10-of-12 shooting -
most of them dunks - and the
conference regular-season co-
champions weathered a Boston
College spurt that trimmed a
20-point deficit to nine before
- pulling away again.
Wayne Ellington. and Ty
Lawson scored 10 each and
Tyler Hansbrough grabbed 13
rebounds for the Tar Heels (27-
6), who will face either No. 3


seed Virginia Tech or 10th-
seeded North Carolina State in
Sunday's championship game.
"We haven't won an ACC
championship, so we basically
wanted to come out strong
against BC and not have them
be in the game," Lawson said.
'"Just get out strong and get
ahead, so we don't have to fight
back the whole game."
. Sean Marshall led Boston
College with 23 points. ACC
Player of the Year Jared
Dudley bounced back from a
subpar first half to finish with
20. The fourth-seeded Eagles
(20-11) trailed 48-28 before
Marshall scored eight during a
13-2 run that trimmed BC's
deficit to 50-41.
Reyshawn Terry made a long
3-pointer and Wright followed
with a dunk as North Carolina
regained control. The Tar Heels
rebuilt the advantage to 18, and
Boston College never got closer
than 13 the rest of the way.
Boston College has lost five
of its last seven, but is still
hopeful of receiving an at-large
berth in the NCAA tournament
"Let's understand some-
thing. The ACC is the best con-
ference in the country. I think
it's proven that this weekend,"
BC coach Al Skinner said. '"As I
told my guys, once we get out of
this freaking ACC, we're going
to do OK."
North Carolina is back in the
championship game for the
first time since 2001. The Tar
Heels haven't won the ACC
tournament since 1998, and
their current streak of eight
consecutive years without a
title is their longest since 1958-
66 - the year before Dean
Smith won his first conference
tourney.

Associated Press

TAMPA - First-year coach
Sidney Lowe, his red jacket
and North Carolina State are
headed to the Atlantic Coast
Conference championship
game.
Gavin Grant scored 20
points, Courtney Fells added
16 and the Wolfpack beat
Virginia Tech 72-64 on
Saturday for their third upset
in as many days at the league's
signature event.
Grant was 4-of-9 from the
field, but perfect (11-of-ll)
from the free throw line. And
free throw shooting proved to
be the difference in this one.
The 10th-seeded Wolfpack
(18-14) made 24 of 28 free
throws, while the third-seeded
Hokies (21-11) were 8-of-19
from the stripe.
North Carolina State
advanced to face eighth-
ranked and top-seeded North
Carolina in the title game
Sunday.
The teams split their two
regular-season meetings, but
the Wolfpack have been on a
roll since losing six of eight
games to close out the regular
season.
Maybe it was the jacket -
the red blazer Lowe first
donned in a win against rival
North Carolina in early
February.He broke it out
again in the tournament, and
his team followed with wins
against Duke and Virginia in
the first two rounds. This one
might have been even more
impressive, especially since
they were playing a third
straight day.
State led by as many as 10


points late in the first half, but
looked like it might fade early
in the second half. Virginia
Tech used a 10-4 run coming
out of the locker room to tie
the game at 35.
But Grant - much like he
did against Virginia when he
scored nine points in the final
2 minutes - took over. The 6-
foot-7 forward touched the
ball nearly every time down
the floor, drove inside, drew
fouls and got to the free throw
line.
His impressive shooting
from the stripe was somewhat
surprising since he entered
the game as a 74-percent free
throw shooter.
Fells helped out, too. He
made a baseline jumper with
about 6 minutes remaining that
doubled a two-point lead. His 3-
pointer with 1:33 to play was
even bigger, making it 61-52.
Tech could have kept it
close, but Coleman Collins
and Jamon Gordon missed the
front end of a one-and-one
from the free throw line.
Collins did it twice.
Gordon led Tech with 12
points, 11 rebounds, four
assists and three steals.
The Wolfpack were nearly
perfect from the stripe down
the stretch - Grant made six
in row in the final 3 minutes,
and Ben McCauley sank all
four of his.
The winners shot 53 percent
from the game and were 6-of-
13 from the 3-point line.
hey overcame 17 turnovers
and no offensive rebounds
with the hot shooting - from
the floor and the free throw
line.

Julian Wright added 12
points, including a jumper with
1:05 left that put the game out
of reach, and Sherron Collins
had 10 points and six assists for
the top-seeded Jayhawks.
Chalmers hit consecutive 3-
pointers to give Kansas its first
double-digit lead of the game
at 43-31 in the opening minutes
of the second half, and the
Jayhawks eventually pushed
ahead by 14 on a 3-pointer by
Brandon Rush.
The Wildcats stayed in it,
though, by preventing Kansas
from extending its dominance
on the boards. The Jayhawks
'had outrebounded Kansas
'State by 43 in sweeping the

Buckeyes pull away late


Wisconsin wil

meet OSUin final
Associated Press.

CHICAGO - Greg Oden put
together a highlight package
for NBA scouts and helped No.
1 Ohio State move to the finals
of the Big Ten tournament and
a step closer to a top seed in
the NCAA tournament.
Oden had 17 points, a tour-
nament-record 19 rebounds
and four blocks Saturday and
the Buckeyes (29-3) pulled
away late from scrappy Purdue
for a 63-52 victory.
Carl Landry scored 24 points
for the Boilermakers, who
managed just four baskets in
the final 10 minutes - three by
Landry - cooling off at the
wrong time against the talent-
ed Buckeyes.
With Oden on the bench
after getting his third foul mid-
way through the second half,
the Buckeyes got a driving
layup from Jamar Butler after
a Boilermakers' turnover and
then a 3-pointer from Ron
Lewis to take a 50-45 lead with
7:40 to go.
Oden returned and swatted
away two shots to add to Purdue's
struggle to score, and when Lewis
made two free throws it was 53-45
with 5:29 to go.
Landry broke a nearly five-


minute Purdue scoring
drought with a jumper, but
after another Boilermakers
turnover, Mike Conley Jr.
swished a 3-pointer from the
corner and the Buckeyes were
up nine.
Moments later, Oden went
crashing through the lane high
over Landry and David Teague
to slam in a missed shot, giving
the Buckeyes an 11-point lead
and all but punctuating the vic-
tory - Ohio State's 16th
straight
The Buckeyes will meet the
winner of the other semifinal
between Illinois and No. 3
Wisconsin for the tournament
title Sunday at the United
Center
Purdue (21-11), losing for the
third time this season to the
Buckeyes, will have to wait until
Sunday's selection announce-
ment to see if they will make the
NCAA tournament
Oden, who hasn't decided if
he's going to go pro or return to
Columbus for a second season,
was 8-for-13 from the field and
nine of his rebounds were on
the offensive end.
Oden's 19 rebounds broke
the previous single-game
tournament record of 18 set by
Iowa's Reggie Evans, who hit
that mark twice, in 2001 and
2002.
Ohio State finished with a 49-
33 rebounding edge, 21-9 on the
offensive end. Lewis added 13


points, Conley Jr. had 11 and
Ivan Harris 10 for the
Buckeyes.
No. 3 Wisconsin 53,
Illinois 41
CHICAGO -Alando Tucker
showed why he is the Big Ten's
player of the year, setting the
school's career scoring record and
finishing with 21 points to lead No.
3 Wisconsin past Illinois 53-41 in
the semifinals of the conference
tournament Saturday.
Kammron Taylor did his part,
too, scoring all but two of his 16
points in the second half to help
set up a championship matchup
with No. 1 Ohio State, which beat
Purdue 63-52 behind a superb
effort from freshman center Greg
Oden.
Tucker and Taylor were impres-
sive, too.
Tucker carried over the momen-
tum from Friday's quarterfinal win
over Michigan State, when he
scored 18 of his 21 points in'the
second half, and asserted himself
immediately.
He began the day with 2,146
points - one shy of Michael Finley
- and set the record on his first
attempt, when he pulled up in the
lane less than two minutes into the
game. Tucker hit his first four shots
and was 10-of-17.
Taylor got going midway through
the second half, after Illinois pulled
within 39-34.


==========Pac 10 TOURNAMENT



Oregon wins Pac 10 tourney


Associated Press

LOS ANGELES - Bryce
Taylor scored a career-high 32
points, making every shot he
'tok,'and'No. 16 Oregon routed
�S Southern California 81-57
�''Saturday' to win the Pac-10
.H1 tournament title.
'taij ,The:'Ducks (26-7) head into
, the NCAA tournament on a six-
game winning streak. They
haven't been there since 2003,
:also the last time they won the
conference tourney.
Taylor went 11-for-ll from
the field, 7-for-7 from 3-point
range and 3-for-3 from the line
- before being removed with
6V2 minutes left and the Ducks
ahead by 40 points.
Taylor electrified the crowd
with each shot he made. The
sophomore from nearby
Encino broke the tourney field-
goal percentage game record
of .917 set by Arizona's Anthony
Cook in 1989.


His seven 3-pointers tied the
mark set by Arizona's Salim
Stoudamire in 2005, and Taylor
tied the 3-point percentage
record shared by several oth-
ers.
Taj Porter added 16 points
and Aaron Brooks 15 for the
Ducks, who shot 54 percent for
the game.
Porter was named the tour-
ney MVP Taylor and Brooks
joined him on the all-tourney
team, along with USC team-
mates Taj Gibson and Gabe
Pruitt and Cal's Ryan
Anderson.
Lodrick Stewart led the
Trojans with 12 points, Nick
Young added 10 and Gibson
grabbed 10 rebounds.
USC erased some of its 40-
point deficit only after Oregon
went to its bench. The Trojans
would have set a record for the
largest title-game loss in the
tourney's 10-year history, but a
late scoring spurt saved them


the embarrassment by two
points.
The Trojans (23-11) were the
only Pac-10 team to sweep the
Ducks this season, shooting 57
percent in both games.
They never came close
Saturday.
USC shot 38 percent for the
game. Except for a five-point
lead early, the Trojans played
catchup the rest of the way.
Taylor dominated the start of
the second half, scoring the
Ducks' first eight points on two
3-pointers sandwiched around
a jumper that extended their
lead to 45-24.
During one stretch, the
Ducks hit six consecutive 3-
pointers, including three by
Taylor and two by Brooks.
Taylor put on a clinic, hitting
from everywhere on a variety
of shots, including a runner
after slipping by USC's Daniel
Hackett and a fast-break dunk

'Jon Barr was a flat-out war-
rior tonight," Manos said. "I
can't say enough about the per-
formance he gaye us."
Radkowski wasn't bad either.
The Rattlers right-hander gave
up just three hits and struck
out eight batters in 7 2-3
innings. However, Belleview
committed six errors and gave
its pitcher scant run support.
Lecanto led 2-0 after five
complete innings before
Belleview answered with three
in the top of the sixth.
Barr hit the first batter and
issued a walk to put runners on
with one out Chris King fol-
lowed with a double to plate
Michael Phipps to cut
Lecanto's lead in half, then
Radkowski's single scored
Wayne Hatcher and King for a
3-2 advantage.
A Panther team of the past
might have folded under com-
parable circumstances, yet
Lecanto immediately
answered to tie the game.
Chris Holland's only hit led

outs in the bottom of the fourth,
Rash roped the first pitch she
saw to the wall in centerfield.
Belleview centerfielder Alicia
Wiley couldn't quite get there
and Rash slid into third for the
triple.
"When I got in the box,"
Rash said, "Quincy looked at
me and said, 'Hey kid, two-out
hits win ball games.'
"When I got on, I had confi-
dence Quincy would bring me
around," Rash added.
Wilson followed her own
advice one at bat later, lining a
single into left field to plate
Rash for the only run the
Pirates would need.
"This game definitely had a
little more on the line,"
Wentworth said. "For Cassidy
as a pitcher, the best thing you
can do is be your own run sup-
port."
McKibbin, to her credit,
pitched a great game, going six
innings, walking none and
striking out two while yielding
a single run.
McKibbin herself is a power
pitcher but, according to
Belleview coach Gary Greer,

the distance (and found out
later it was 4 feet, 2 inches).
"That was the longest of the
week," he said.
, After missing the cut, he
went to a golf retail store look-
ing for a long-handled putter,
didn't like the choices and set-
tled on a conventional Ping
model that suited his eye and
cost him $256.18. It's probably a
good thing that he paid for it,
because that would be less
incentive to break it. That goes
into his decision on which put-
ter to use.
"I just kind of look at .it and
see which 'one looks less ugly to
me," he said. "Or which one I
really wouldn't mind breaking
some time during the course of
the round."
He also made a slight change
in his stroke, pulling more with
his left hand.
Either way, he started pour-
ing in putts from everywhere,
climbing the leaderboard and
getting everyone's attention.
"When everyone saw him get
hot, they started to chase,"
Glover said. "When I looked up
at the board on 12, I said, 'Man,
I've gotta go if I want to be
there.' I think everyone got
aggressive."
Slocum pecked away on the
back nine, making birdie on
the tough 16th and following
that with a 10-footer on the
18th. He will be in the final
group, with one eye over his
shoulder.
"It's so crammed at the top,"
Slocum said. "Calc proved
today you can shoot a low num-
ber, although I didn't think any-
one could shoot that low. Wow."


It figures to change slight
Sunday, with tougher h6le
locations and the pressure of
the final round.
Calcavecchia surely will feel
some of that
He is a 12-time winner on
the PGA Tour, including a
British Open, but at age 46,
these chances don't come


off the bottom of the sixth.
Holland stole second before
Meseroll reached on a
dropped pop fly near first base.
After Radkowski recorded
the inning's second out on a
popup, John Crabtree hit a
chopper to third base. The ball
was fielded cleanly, but the
resulting throw skipped by first
base, allowing Holland to come
around with the tying run.
Lecanto looked sharp in get-
ting out to its 2-0 lead to start
the game. Meseroll doubled
into the gap to start the second
inning and later scored on a
fielder's choice by Crabtree for
a 1-0 margin.
Meseroll made his mark
again in the fourth inning, this
time by way of baseball's most
exciting play.
In the hole with an 0-2 0ount.
against him after taking a pair
of curves, Radkowski came
back with a high fastball.
Manos admitted the pitch
was a good call, but Meseroll
crushed the offering over the
wall in dead centerfield to put
Lecanto up 2-0.
"I was much more relaxed
today," Meseroll said. "I was
seeing the ball a lot better."

the Rattlers had a specific
gameplan against Crystal
River.
"We sacrificed her strikeouts
to keep the ball on the ground,"
Greer said. "I thought
(Montanna) did a great job."
The Pirates' Amber Wilson
got the only other hit of the
game, leading off the fifth with
a single up the middle and
after a sacrifice bunt by Becca
Reynolds, stood on second
with one out
McKibbin and the Rattlers
buckled down though, getting
the last two batters on a
groundout and fly ball to cen-
ter.
Menawhile, Rash was
untouchable and only missed
out on a perfect game due to a
two-out error at shortstop in
the sixth inning.
Rash struck out two each in
the first three innings and
then, almost to prove she was-
n't tiring in the later frames,
struck out the side in the fifth.
During the course of the game
just one ball off of a Rattler bat
left the infield.
"She did a good job of hitting
her spots," Greer said of Rash.
"We were never really comfort-
able up there"
Crystal River plays 6:30 p.m.

along very often.
He is not the model of fitness
in golf, and his body creaks so
much that he started taking
pills of glucose and other
herbal extracts that have
helped soothe his joints.
Foremost is his putting.
"The older you get, the hard-
er it gets," he said. "Chances
aren't as readily available as
they used to be for me. So I'm
sure I'll be nervous tomorrow
just like everybody was last
week, and everybody was the
week before. I'll give it my best
shot"
.It's also a big week for Eric
Larson, his caddie.
Calcavecchia already told him
this would be there last week
for a while because he likes to
give several caddies a chance
to work for him.
Larson, one of the most lik-
able loopers on tour, spent 11
years in prison after he was
convicted of being the middle
man in a small-time drug ring.
When he got out, Calcavecchia
wanted to help him with his
second chance.
"I paid him fairly well for
our two top 10s," he said. "That
really got him out of a bind. I
felt good about that I would
like to write him an extra big
check This would be a nice
way to enjoy next week and
give Eric a month of two off."
Divots: Slocum played on the
same high school golf team as
Boo Weekley, who played in
the final group last week at the
Honda Classic and lost in a
four-man playoff.
Calcavecchia said the USGA's
proposal to limit the amount of
spin produced by grooves in
the irons was "ridiculous." It
was his 8-iron out of the rough
in the '87 Honda Classic that
spun back on the green that


first got the USGA's attention,
leading to lawsuits that were
settled out of court. "It's not the
grooves," he said. "It's the ball."
... Two of the more promising
young players on tour - 24-
year-old Ryan Moore and 21-
year-old Anthony Kim - were
paired Saturday. Both shot 68
and were at 5-under 208.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Pau
Gasol had 31 points and 15
rebounds, and the Memphis
Grizzlies snapped a six-game
losing streak with a 115-107
victory over the Charlotte
Bobcats on Saturday night.
Hakim Warrick had 18
points for Memphis and Rudy
Gay added 16 points and 10
boards. Mike Miller also had
16 points. The Grizzlies, who
own the worst record in the
league, won for only the fifth
time in 33 road games.
Raymond Felton scored a
season-high 24 points on 10-
of-19 shooting, while Gerald
Wallace added 24 points and
13 rebounds for Charlotte.
Even the return of forward
Sean May couldn't prevent the
Bobcats from losing their
eighth straight game. May,
who had missed the last 20
games with a knee injury,
played 22 minutes and scored
13 points and grabbed three
rebounds. He hadn't played
since Jan. 26 against the Los
Angeles Lakers.
Derek Anderson had 16

ATLANTA - Josh Smith scored
a career-high 32 points, going 12-
of-15 from the field and helping
the Atlanta Hawks beat the
Minnesota Timberwolves 99-93
on Saturday night for their third
straight victory.
Kevin Garnett had 32 points, 11
rebounds and five assists for the


Timberwolves, who have lost
eight straight and 11 of 12 on the
road.
The lead changed hands seven
times in the second half, but
Atlanta never trailed after Salim
Stoudamire fed Smith for a dunk
that made it 84-83 with 5:58
remaining.
Minnesota was ahead 66-57 on
Ricky Davis' dunk midway
through the third quarter, but the
Hawks went on an 11-0 run that
ended with Smith's 3-pointer to
give Atlanta its first lead since the
first minute of the second quarter.
The Hawks are missing leading
scorer Joe Johnson, whose 25-
point average was tied for 10th in
the NBA when the game began.
Zaza Pachulia and Josh
Childress each scored 16 for
Atlanta.

night with 77 more than San
Antonio's Tim Duncan during that
stretch.
Davis, who finished with 19
points, hit a pair of free throws to
end the scoring for Minnesota
with 1:01 left. He missed two 3s
and Troy Hudson misfired beyond
the arc on the Timberwolves' final
three possessions.
Garnett's 8-footer midway
through the second ended a 25-8
run that gave the Timberwolves a

opened since March 4-6, 2006.
His 15 first-quarter points
Friday were his most in a peri-
od since April 2005. His foot-
work is better, keeping him out
.of foul trouble, and he's con-
trolling games by finding open
shooters when opponents dou-
ble-team him.
"Shaq's leadership right now
is at an all-time high," Heat for-
ward Antoine Walker said. "He
wants the ball. He's demanding
it, he's aggressive and when he
gets double-teamed he passes
it out and hits guys for open
shots. We can't ask for any more
than that."
When O'Neal came to Miami
nearly three years ago, one of
the first things he did was call
Wade and tell him that the
Heat was his team, an effort to
defuse any power struggle
before one could start.
. With Wade being the go-to
guy on offense since, the Heat
made the Eastern Conference
finals in 2005, then won last
season's NBA title. But now
with Wade out indefinitely
because of a dislocated left
shoulder, O'Neal finds himself
back in the primary scorer role
- and clearly hasn't forgotten
how to operate.
"I have all that in my game.
It's just been dormant the last
couple years," O'Neal said.
"Wasn't really my role to be
scoring a lot of points. But you
ask me to do something, I'll do
it.... Our No. 1 guy's down and
I'm just stepping my game up,
because when I was down, he
really stepped his game up and
played well."
Wade, who is rehabbing the
shoulder and will determine in
the next couple of weeks if he
can try to play again this sea-
son, said it is "very joyous" for
him to see the Heat playing
their best basketball of the
year.


He credited many players -
singling out Walker, Eddie
Jones, Jason Williams, Alonzo
Mourning and James Posey -
but saved his highest praise for
the Heat's biggest man.
"Shaq has really looked
great," Wade said. "He's mak-
ing the offense."
Heat coach Pat Riley said he
expects upcoming opponents
to begin changing the way they
defend O'Neal; by putting two
players around him at all
times, someone on the Miami
offensive end will invariably be


seventh straight Saturday night
with a 100-96 victory over the
Indiana Pacers, who have lost
eight in a row.
Willie Green scored 18 points
and Andre Miller added 16 for the
76ers.
Danny Granger and Troy
Murphy each scored 18 points,
while Mike Dunleavy and Ike
Diogu added 17 apiece for the
undermanned Pacers, who have
their longest losing streak since
the 1988-1989 season.
Point guard Jamaal Tinsley was
suspended for the game for con-
duct detrimental to the team.
Jermaine O'Neal, Indiana's lead-
ing scorer, rebounder and shot
blocker, sat out with a sprained
left knee and Marquis Daniels, a
key reserve, sat out with a sore
left knee.
Philadelphia took a 92-86 lead
on an alley-oop dunk by Samuel
Dalembert on an assist from
Iguodala with 1:37 left.
Dunleavy countered with a 3-
pointer, but Miller came back with
a short jumper to make it 94-89
with 50 seconds left.
Granger made one of two free
throws with 12 seconds left to cut
Philadelphia's lead to 94-90, but
Philadelphia's Kyle Korver made
two free throws at the other end
with 11 seconds left.
Granger made a 3-pointer with
8 seconds left and another with
1.5 seconds to play, but Korver
finally clinched the game by mak-
ing two free throws with 0.9 sec-
onds to play. He scored all of his
14 points in the second half.
Knicks 90, Wizards 89
WASHINGTON - Steve
Francis took a page from Gilbert
Arenas' playbook.
Francis swished a 3-pointer at
the buzzer Saturday night to com-
plete a late comeback and lift New
York to a 90-89 victory over
Arenas' Washington Wizards, mov-
ing the Knicks into a tie for eighth
place in the Eastern Conference.
Francis, who finished with 26
points and seven rebounds, drib-
bled behind his back to get space
away from defender Antonio
Daniels and released the ball with
about a second on the clock.
When the ball went through, he
hopped on the scorers' table,
crossed his arms and nodded at
the crowd, before teammates
mobbed him. After Francis got
down, Nate Robinson jumped on
the guard's back for a ride across
the court.
Arenas finished with 25 points,
but he never had a chance to take
the sort of last-second shot he's
been making this season. The

open, almost creating a 4-on-3
scenario, which clearly bene-
fits the Heat shooters.
"We have no problem with
that," Walker said.
Neither would O'Neal.
He's repeatedly said stats no
longer matter, and that his sin-
gular driving force-"The way
I look My legacy," O'Neal said
- is more important than his
line in the box score.
"Just winning," O'Neal said.
"It's all about winning, winning
games, winning champi-
onships, just winning."

Wizards were up 82-76 with about
3% minutes to go, but New York
kept whittling that, and Arenas
missed a layup with 40 seconds
left and Washington ahead 86-84'
By that point, though, the game
had devolved into a display of poor
free-throw shooting by both teams
- and Francis even appeared to
blow a chance to send it to over-
time with 7.1 seconds left.
With Washington up 88-85,
Francis drove and was fouled by
Caron Butler.
Francis' shot went in, but with a
three-point play in the offing, he
'clanged the foul shot.
Washington's Andray Blatche
grabbed the rebound and was
immediately fouled, but he went
only 1-for-2 from the line, setting
up Francis' final flourish.
Before that, the Knicks seem-
ingly went 1-for-2 every time they
had foul shots in the fourth quarter,
and they finished 16-for-28 from
the line - 57.1 percent.
But the visitors held a 44-35


rebounding advantage. Plus, low-
scoring games are rarely to
Washington's liking; both teams
shot worse than 42 percent.
New York's Eddy Curry had 19
points and nine rebounds, and
Stephon Marbury scored 15 points
- well off the 37.3 he averaged
over the previous three games.
Quentin Richardson was a late
scratch with a sore lower back,
and the Knicks already were with-
out Jamal Crawford and David
Lee.
So for Southeast Division-lead-
ing Washington, it was the latest
example of having trouble against
an undermanned opponent, includ-
ing losses to Denver without
Carmelo Anthony, Memphis with-
out Pau Gasol, and - in its previ-
ous game - to Atlanta without Joe
Johnson and Marvin Williams.
Washington led by as many as
nine in the first half but was up
only 41-39 at the break, led by
Arenas' 14 points on 3-for-6 shoot-
ing - all 3-point attempts.

Burton beats Bush 'in wild fnish


Las Vegas track

has a record 12

cautions jar 58 laps

Associated Press

LAS VEGAS - Jeff Burton
nudged a spinning Kyle Busch
across the finish line Saturday
to win a chaotic, caution-
marred Busch Series race at
Las Vegas Motor Speedway
Complaints about the recon-
figured track and the hard tires
Goodyear has provided then

versation, 'as drivers warned

could be a disaster.
"The race will suck," said
Kevin Harvick, who finished
seventh. "The paving is awful.

that pave parking lots out there

I Las Vegas officials repaved

from 12 degrees to 20 as track
owner Bruton Smith sought to
improve the competition. But it
made speeds extremely high,
forcing Goodyear to bring a

called "treacherous" to the
track
. Greg Biffle said it felt like he
was driving on black ice, and
Kasey Kahne said every lap is
a fight to keep the car from

The race winner said they
were all right, but also defend-

"They are all right I am not
disagreeing with any of them,"
Burton said. "The question is,
'What would you do different?'
We don't live in a perfect world.


Jeff Burton crosses the finish line to win the NASCAR Busch Series' Sam's Town 300 auto race as Kyle Busch spins out

I am not saying the tires are
perfect. They are not. It is
treacherous. Restarts are a
mess. Driving underneath

"But what. are you going to

lem. They had to come here
with a tire that could run a
whole race without having a

Track changes confuse drivers in Las Vegas


Associated Press

LAS VEGAS - A major reno-
vation at. Las Vegas Motor.
Speedway has turned the mon-
strous track in the desert into a
glistening palace that shames
almost every other NASCAR
facility.
The facelift sure made Las
Vegas pretty, but the verdict is
out on what it did for the racing.
Track owner Bruton Smith is
confident the Nextel Cup event
will be a thriller, but the drivers
aren't so sure what they'll get
on Sunday.
"To a certain degree, you've
got to give them credit for trying
to make it better," two-time
series champion Tony Stewart
said. "I'm not sure they did."
S tewart has been extremely
vccal in his displeasure of the
L4s Vegas changes, which cost
Sriith an estimated $30 million.
Stewart dislikes the reconfig-
uration, which increased cor-


ner banking to 20 degrees from
12. The new banking produced
speeds that hovered around 200
mph during a January test ses-
sion, leading Goodyear to
develop a very hard tire for use
this weekend.
And Stewart really doesn't
like that
"You would think a company
like Goodyear could do a lot
better job than what they're
doing, especially a company
that has been in this business
for so long," Stewart fumed
after qualifying. "They don't
care about the competition.
They don't care about the driv-
ers. They don't care about the
teams. All they care about is not
having bad publicity' and not
blowing tires out and getting
bad publicity because of that
"I would give half my salary
to get Hoosier Tire to be mak-
ing the tires instead of the
(junk) we've got to run on right
now."


Associated Press
Jeff Gordon drives his car during practice for today's NASCAR
UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 auto race at Las Vegas Motor
Speedway Friday in Las Vegas.


Goodyear officials defended
the tire.
"He's one that's pretty vocal
about not liking too much of
anything this weekend," said
Greg Stucker of Goodyear. "I
don't think he likes the race-
track I don't think he likes the
harder setup. There's no ques-
tion it is a harder setup, we
acknowledge that But again,
we've got to make sure that it's
right for everybody. We were
concerned about the heat, the
blistering, when we came back
here and tested and we've got
to make sure we address all of
those problems.
"Certain guys are going to
adapt to it and other guys will
eventually get a handle on it"
Because the durability of the
tires is so unknown, NASCAR
mandated the use of a smaller
fuel tank to equalize it By using
a 13-gallon tank instead of the
normal 17-gallon tank, teams
will pit more often and proba-
bly change their tires more
often.
Drivers seemed to have a bet-
ter feel for the situation during
two quiet Saturday practice
sessions - a stark change from
a chaotic Friday that saw sever-
al Busch and Cup cars
destroyed in crashes.
"There's more wrecks and
more stuff happening now that
they've made the tire harder,"
David Stremme said. "It's hard
to get a feel. When the car starts
to break loose, you're done."
It's been an annoyance for
many of the drivers, who are
frustrated that most of the data
accrued after two days of test-
ing was negated by the changes.,
"It's been a real challenge,",

Workers paint the track at the start/finish line at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas on
Thursday, as they prepare for a weekend of NASCAR auto racing.


four-time series champion Jeff.
Gordon said. "They slowed us
down over a second from when
we were here testing. It's been
one of those things where
everybody's real frustrated
with trying to get the grip and
trying to get some comfort back
in the car."
Smith insists it will all be
worth it Sunday, when every-
one is rewarded with side-by-
side racing, lead changes and a
battle to the checkered flag.
S"Bruton Smith puts the race
fans first, and that's what he
was doing with this new config-
uration - looking for better


competition and more side-by-
side racing," track general
manager Chris Powell said.
But it might not happen on
Sunday.
Drivers generally prefer
older tracks, where the asphalt
is worn' and not very slick It
gives them more grip and
allows the use of a softer tire,
which all fits into their comfort
zone. A brand new track sur-
face wreaks havoc on every-
thing they know.
"The racetrack is going to be
a challenge," Mark Martin said.
"The greatest thing that we can
hope for is that these brutal


summers out here in Las Vegas
will weather this asphalt really
quickly, and take some of the
edge off it It's a real challenge
for Goodyear and the teams to
handle the speeds it's produc-
ing and the loads it's putting on
the tires.
"It's going to make things dif-
ficult for the teams this week-
end."
But there are other issues, as
well.
The curved entrance to pit
road could be problematic, and
since the smaller fuel cells will
require frequent visits, the driv-
ers must get acclimated to it

bi ied the Rebels by going 10-

; ar, Humphrey was especially
accurate, making 5-of-8 outside

u]the rest of his versatile
game.
":'\hen I'm making my out-
sile shots, teams have to pres-
sure me and I can drive to the
basket," Brewer said.
:>'As usual, everyone chipped
ipfor the Gators. Horford had 9
p. ints, 13 rebounds and two
btpcks. Noah grabbed 12
rebounds, scored 8 points and


swatted away three shots.
After blowing out Georgia in
the quarterfinals with the first
17 points of the game, Florida
got off to another quick start.
Brewer and Green connected
from 3-point range and Al
Horford scored on the inside to
make it 13-2 with the game
barely five minutes old.
"We're a team, and I think
that's what they've thrived on,
that's what they've bought into,
that's what they think their
identity is, and that's the way
they enjoy playing," Donovan
said.
Ole Miss called a quick time-
out and pulled itself together,
making a game of it by late in
the first half despite abysmal
shooting. The Rebels whittled
Florida's lead to 30-22 and had
the ball with less than two min-
utes remaining, but the Gators
needed no time at all to restore
a comfortable margin.
Humphrey connected on his
third 3-pointer of the half,
Green made a couple of free
throws and Walter Hodge burst
to the basket for a layin after an


Ole Miss turnover, sending
Florida to the locker room with
its biggest lead to that point, 37-
22.
Ole Miss coach Andy
Kennedy actually came up with
a new word - "spurtability" -
to describe Florida's quick
strikes.
"Their athleticism in the
open floor is as good as we've
faced all year," he said. "They
ran out, got in the open floor
and finished the half on a very
strong note. It certainly took a
little wind out of our sails, and
built what ended up being an
insurmountable lead."
A similar run in the second
half finished off the Rebels.
After Sanders missed a jumper
that could have closed the gap
to single digits, Brewer and
Humphrey swished 3s, then
Green drove for a layup that
capped a 13-2 run with 9V2 min-
utes to go.
That gave Florida a 62-41
lead and the Gators stretched
the margin as high as 25 points
before letting up at the end.
Even with 20 wins, Ole Miss


doesn't expect to hear its name
called when the NCAA field is
announced. The Rebels, are
resigned to being in the
National Invitation
Tournament
"I'm a realist," Kennery said.
"We'll play in a tournament,
but it won't be the four-letter
one."
Clearly, the Gators have got-
ten past that little hiccup at the
end of February, when they lost
three of four games. Now,
they're a legitimate contender
for a No. 1 seed.
"We went through a tough
stretch," Humphrey said. "We
weren't executing on offense
and defense. But we're starting
to put it together."
Arkansas 81,

game.
Arkansas (21-12) may have
played its way into the NCAA tour-
nament field with the win. The
Arkansas pep band chanted
"Going to the show" in the final
seconds.
Ervin, who played his first two
seasons at Mississippi State before
transferring to Arkansas, was in the
spotlight for the Razorbacks for the
second straight day.,
Ervin hit the game-winning driv-
ing jumper for Arkansas in its 72-71
win over Vanderbilt on Friday, and
on Saturday he helped push the
Razorbacks into their first SEC
tournament final since 2000.
Mississippi State (18-13) shot
only 41.7 percent from the field.
Jamont Gordon made only 3 of 13
shots for 11 points. Ben
Hansbrough led the Bulldogs with
12 points. Dietric Slater had 11 and


Reginald Delk added 10.
Slater, bothered by sore toes
and wearing a splint on his injured
left middle finger, was considered
questionable to start. The senior
swingman showed no sign of being
slowed by the injuries as he had
nine first-half points.
Following a 33-33 tie, a driving
basket by Slater gave the Bulldogs
the lead. Mississippi State made
six 3-pointers in the half, including
one by Reginald Delk with 18 sec-
onds left for a 40-39 lead at the
break.
Slater and 3-point specialist
Barry Stewart each had three fouls
in the half. Slater had to sit after
drawing his fourth foul about six
minutes into the second half;
Stewart's fourth came only six sec-
onds later, and he followed Slater
to the bench.
Slater wasn't the only member of
the Mississippi State team who
was dealing with an injury. Coach
Rick Stansbury wore white sneak-
ers with extra cushion after bruising
his heels stomping on the sideline
in Friday's overtime win over
Kentucky.

Flyers take down

Bruins, 4-1
Associated Press
PITTSBURGH - Sidney
Crosby scored a milestone
game-tying goal but was relegat-
ed to hearing the crowd roar for
the game winner from the lock-
er room.
Colby Armstrong scored 1:19
into overtime and the Pittsburgh
Penguins came back from a two-
goal, third-period deficit to beat
the New York Rangers 3-2 on
Saturday
Crosby had tied the game at 2
for his 100th point of the season
with 13:04 to play, becoming the
youngest player in NHL history
with two 100-point seasons. But
equipment problems sent him to
:the locker room after regula-
tion.
"It sucks," Crosby said of hav-
ing to miss overtime. "I have a
lot of trust in the guys, but I want

to be out there, especially in
overtime ... and I'm just sitting
there. It's hard just watching."
Armstrong made it a pleasant
watch, however, by scoring his
third overtime goal this season,
tying a team record. Evgeni
Malkin added a goal and an
assist for Pittsburgh, which has
come-froin-behind in each of its
past five victories.
Flyers 4, Bruins 1
PHILADELPHIA- Martin Biron is
doing his best to make the worst
team in the league respectable.
The Flyers' goalie picked up his
third victory since being acquired by
Philadelphia, stopping 26 shots in a
4-1 win over the Boston Bruins on
Saturday.
Biron came over from Buffalo on
Feb. 27 for a second-round draft
pick. He's 3-1-1 since the deal,
though the Flyers are still last in the
league with 49 points.
"It wasn't like we didn't have any


chances," Bruins No. 2 goalie Joey
MacDonald, who made 25 saves.
"Biron just made some great saves.
We just have to keep battling. We're
working really hard. We're.just not
getting the breaks."
Mike Richards took advantage of a
Boston turnover to score the tie-
breaking goal early in the third period.
"I think everyone was kind of up
to the challenge today," Richards
said. "It seems like we played a
good sound physical game. We did
a good job getting after the defense
and tried to tum pucks over."
Devils 3, Sabres 2
BUFFALO, N.Y. - Martin
Brodeur made 31 saves to help
give the New Jersey Devils a 3-2
win over the Buffalo Sabres in a
matchup of the top two teams in the
Eastern Conference on Saturday
night.
With the win, the Devils moved
within a point of the Sabres for the
top spot in the conference.
Dainius Zubrus and Daniel Briere
scored for the Sabres, who have
lost three straight, matching a sea-
son high.
Travis Zajac, Michael Rupp and
Brian Rafalski scored for the Devils,
who have won two consecutive
games. New Jersey has beaten the
Sabres in two of the first three
meetings.
Brodeur won his league-leading
41st game.
The Devils were without forward
Brian Gionta (groin) and defense-
man Colin White (hand), and
dressed 17 skaters - one fewer
than the norm - including five
defensemen. Also, forward Erik
Rasmussen missed most of the
game after he was hit in the face
with the puck following Rafalski's
clearing attempt seven minutes in.
Zubrus opened the scoring with
his first goal for Buffalo since being
acquired from Washington at the
trade deadline, snapping a shot
from the outer edge of the right cir-
cle past Brodeur at 3:23 of the first.
New Jersey tied it on Zajac's goal
2�1/2 minutes later. Zajac deflected
Jamie L.angenbrunner's shot in mid-
air past goalie Ryan Miller.
The Devils took a 2-1 lead on
Rupp's goal 33 seconds into the
second, but Buffalo tied it when
Briere netted his28th goal after
deflecting Nathan Paetsch's shot

from the left point.
New Jersey went ahead 3-2 on
Rafalski's short-handed goal with 28
seconds left in the second. With
Sergei Brylin in the penalty box after
being handed a double-minor
penalty for high-sticking Buffalo's
Derek Roy, Rafalski wristed a shot
that beat Miller between the legs.
The Sabres have allowed a
short-handed goal in three straight
games, and only Boston (15) has
given up more short-handed goals
than Buffalo's 13.
Miller finished with 23 saves.
Panthems 3, Thrashers 2
SUNRISE - Jay Bouwmeester
scored the game-winning goal as
the Florida Panthers defeated the
Atlanta Thrashers 3-2 on Saturday
night.
It was the first victory for Florida
over Atlanta in seven games this
season.
The loss snapped a five-game
win streak for the Thrashers.,,,
Olli Jokinen and Nathan Horton
also scored goals for Florida and Ed
Belfour stopped 28 shots for the
Panthers.
Marian Hossa and Keith Tkachuk
scored for Atlanta. KadrLehtonen
had 36 saves for Atlanta.
With the teams skating 4-on-4,
the Panthers stretched their lead to
3-1 on Bouwmeester's goal at 3:52
of the third period. His shot from just
inside the blue line went through
Lehtonen's legs.
Tkachuk closed the gap to 3-2 at
15:29 of the third. Belfour blocked a
shot by Hossa but the puck stayed


in the crease. Tkachuk poked it past
Belfour on the glove side.
Senators 4, Maple Leafs 3, OT
TORONTO - Darcy Tucker's
second goal of the game 3:11 into
overtime lifted the Toronto Maple
Leafs to a 4-3 win over the rival
Ottawa Senators on Saturday night.
Tucker one-timed a shot over
goalie Ray Emery's left shoulder, as
the Maple Leafs erased a pair of
two-goal deficits as they kept pace'.;,.
in the Eastern Conference playoff
chase. The Maple Leafs moved into
a tie for the eighth and final playoff
spot with Carolina at 75 points.
Nik Antropov and Boyd
Devereaux had third-period goals
for the Maple Leafs.
Emery made 41 saves for the
Senators.
Daniel Afredsson, Mike Fisher and
Dany Heatley scored for the Senators,
who won the season series 5-1-2.


Islanders 5, Capitals 2
UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Marc-
Andre Bergeron and Andy Hilbert
each had a goal and assist, and the
New York Islanders got back on the
winning track with a 5-2 victory over
the slumping Washington Capitals
on Saturday night.
The Islanders, playing their first
game without suspended forward
Chris Simon, rebounded from a pair
of 2-1 losses to the rival New York
Rangers and sent the Capitals to
their fifth regulation loss in seven
games (0-5-2).
Mike Sillinger and Jason Blake
also scored for the Islanders, who
moved three points ahead of .
Carolina and the playoff cutoff in the
Eastern Conference. Rick DiPietro
stopped 26 shots to reach 30 wins
for the second straight season. He
made his 17th consecutive start and
played in his 200th NHL game.

made the statement that the Navy

public school one day and
I don't need to be judged
like that. So, Citrus
County, please do riot
judge us Renaissance
Center students.
Basket cases
I think something needs
to be done about these old
people on these three-


wheel bicycles. They drive
by my house all day and all
night long, making all kinds of noise
with the radio playing in their front
basket, or they've got a little yipping,
barking dog in the front basket, or
maybe 50 pounds of groceries. They
turn around in my driveway. They.
constantly run over my grass and
they're going to run over me some
morning when I'm taking my walk.
Something needs to be done about
these crazy three-wheeled bicycles.
Better yet, maybe we ought to buy
three or four of them for the sheriff's
(office) and spend $30,000 a year
for each officer's pay so they can ride
around on these three-wheeled bicy-
cles and patrol the roads and keep
these old people off. Sounds pretty
dumb, doesn't it?
Bring back Hunter
The press should bring back Jim
Hunter to your staff. His contacts
and his compassion for organiza-
tions in Citrus County and his help
for individuals ... are legendary. Just
thought I'd let you know.
Beyond compare
The person who compares Las
Vegas with local VFWs apparently has
never been to Vegas. It's about as
ridiculous as comparing Saks Fifth
Avenue with Bealls Outlet. Get a life.
Cheney to Reed
Why don't we send Vice President
Cheney to Walter Reed Hospital to
recuperate? Give him the same serv-
ice as our soldiers receive, then he
can report back to his boss as to
the conditions there.


Remembering Rand's rants


T he Christian Science
Monitor recently
noted the 50th
anniversary of the publica-
tion of Ayn Rand's novel
'"Atlas Shrugged." If you've
never read it, you should,
though it's about as long as
"War and Peace" and is -.
more a polemic than litera-
ture.
Nevertheless, it's fair to Charle"
say that it resurrected lib- OTi
ertarianism, which had just VO1
about shrunk to pea size in
our garden of ideologies.
The novel was a merciless attack
against altruism and collectivism at a
time when both were dominating the
American culture. It celebrated unre-
strained capitalism, individualism,
selfishness and sound money. None of
Rand's economic ideas were original.
She just borrowed the ideas of the
Austrian School of Economics and was
careful never to give the economists
credit She became a cult figure.
Like all ideologies, however, Ayn
Rand's philosophy, which she called
objectivismm," was false to the facts.
Her vision of heroic industrialists was
a far cry from the real robber barons
who exploited labor and the environ-
ment and corrupted government right
and left They often resorted to vio-
lence. Her claim that reason was the
salvation and only rule for living as


y

C


people should live was too
stem even for her own life.
Human beings, who can use
reason, are not always rea-
sonable people. As one man
put it, a scientist is a scien-
" tist for only a few hours of
the day; the rest of the time,
he's a human being, with all
the emotions and preju-
dices that most humans
Reese carry around.
IER Her portrayal of the col-
DES lectivists was more accu-
rate. She knew them well,
having -survived the
Bolshevik Revolution before coming
to the United States in 1926. From a lit-
erary standpoint, I've always thought
her first novel, "We the Living," set in
communist Russia, is her best work
Don't get me wrong. Rand said many
valuable things. I "discovered" her at
about age 24 and for a number of years
devoured everything she wrote. One of
her followers, by the way, was Alan.
Greenspan, later chairman of the
Federal Reserve.
The problem with Rand's philoso-
phy is that, like pure libertarianism, it
is in the final analysis cruel and heart-
less. She was an atheist, and, as she
put it on a national talk show, those
people who couldn't cut it on their own
"will perish." This is the logical out-
come of libertarianism, as Harry
Browne so eloquently pointed out, just


as Nazism is the logical outcome of.
modern liberalism with its current,
trend toward a "therapeutic" society. *
I prefer Wendell Berry's ideal of a,
healthy community to the extreme :
individualism that characterizes liber-
tarianism. Man is, after all, a herd ani-
mal, and all human progress has
resulted from cooperation. Rand's pihi-
losophy, in the final analysis, is an
oversimplification of human exis-
tence, which is incredibly complex. It's
very appealing to the young, who are
always arrogant, but it simply doesn't
wear well with experience.
I'm not willing to ignore human suf-,
fering even if it's the fault of those who
suffer. I'm not willing to step over dead
bodies on my way to the supermarket.
I'm not willing to see anyone perish for.
lack of food or medical care in a land
of such enormous wealth and,
resources.
Rand believed that one's own happi-
ness was the only goal worth pursuing,.
but I've never in my life met a self-cen-.

Greenhouse gases
Re: Global warming Feb. 26 and 27.
Both authors, Charley Reese and
William Rusher, made a joke of the
movement to bring about an aware-
ness of the phenomenon of long-term
global warming.
The earth's ice is melting at an
alarming rate. This is a fact (National
Geographic Society - "Glacial
Meltdown"), and hence it is assumed
that global warming is the cause, most
people can agree with this.
However, the reason for this long-
term global warming is the real ques-
tion and few agree. The general con-
sensus is greenhouse gases from
years of coal-fired industrial manu-
facturing. These gases and their
accompanying elements, such as mer-
cury, should be the concern for the
health of the human race, not global
warming.
One small example is Citrus
County's contribution for 20 years or
more (reported by local papers) -
2005 total emissions: 102,653 tons of
sulfur dioxide, 36,753 tons of nitrogen
oxide, 17.35 million tons of carbon
dioxide, and 520 pounds of mercury.
Since 1977, this is more than 5 tons of
mercury that has gone into the food
supply of the Gulf of Mexico.

who have no regard for others,

Some of the things I've seen are dis-
turbing and need to be corrected, but,
as much time as I spend on the water,
most of these stories seem to happen
when I'm not on the water.
Part of the problem is education
and I don't know anyone who is doing
more to educate the public than the
tour operators.
Thousands of people each year are
being taught about these gentle crea-
tures and the efforts that are being
made to ensure that they survive.
Documenting abuse without identi-
fying the source appears to be sensa-
tionalism aimed at swaying public
opinion to coincide with one group
whose stated goal is to see that all
interaction between humans and
manatees is no longer an option.
We are all in favor of seeing that the
rules, which exist today, are being fol-
lowed.
I also think that most of us are in
favor of education rather than
enforcement as much of the so-called


(crossing of physical and ethical
boundaries) seems to be from igno-
rance rather than a lack of respect or
intentional abuse.
If additional enforcement is ;
required and funding is needed to ,
support it, then it is up to the powers -
that be to come up with those funds. r
If that source is taxing an industry
that is bringing in thousands of dol-
lars in the form of tourist dollars for
food, lodging, fuel and other forms of
entertainment, then so be i. Ifthe ,h
tour operators go out of business,
then we all lose.

Paying multiples
I just paid my phone bills, all three
of them. ' '
I have a cell phone for emergency
contact ability when away from home.
The other two phones are the usual; -
local and long-distance.
The cell phone is the cheapest one
I could find. Total phone bills for this i
month: $78.90. I never go over my ,
minutes on the cell and almost never *
use the long distance. Of that month
cost, $20.90 is for surcharges and
taxes and those are multiples of each
other.
In other words, I pay the same
taxes and surcharges more than once
each month. Included also is some-
thing called a Storm Recovery
Charge.
This I pay to aid the phone compa-
ny in recovering their costs for dam-
ages to their lines caused by the hfir-'
ricanes.
What kind of deal is this? If a bad "
storm damages my house, will any of :
the phone companies pay for my
repairs? I think not So, my question �
is: Is there a way to fight these ridcu-
lous charges?

her, there is a gap between
COBRA coverage and

It get's even more disconcert-

John Couey.
The second trail that helped
renew my faith happened in
the Citrus County Circuit Court
on Thursday, where I ended up
as a member of a six-person
jury
I spent the good part of a day
listening to the state of Florida
make an argument against two
defendants. An equal amount
of time was spent by a defense
attorney who argued that his
clients were innocent
After listening to all the tes-
timony, the jury went back into
a room to make a decision.
It's an interesting time when
you're asked to debate a set of
facts with a group of people
you don't know.
I'm used to debating with my
wife and I'm always wrong.
When you discuss facts with
people you don't really know,
you end up being much more
polite. And you listen.
The bottom line was that all
six members of the jury agreed
- the state did not prove the
two defendants were guilty of
the nine charges lodged
against them.
The defendants were ruled
not guilty of all charges.
The significance of the situa-
tion hit me later that day.
The state of Florida spent
millions of dollars gathering
information against John
Couey, and then they rested the
final decision in the" hands bf
12 regular citizens.
It wasn't the politicians or
the sheriff or the prosecutor or
theaktowneys who got to make
the' final decision about
Couey's guilt or innocence.
It was just 12 regular people.

And later that same week,
there I was with five other reg-
ular citizens who were asked to
make a decision on another
case. And our decision was that
those defendants were not
guilty.
Our government really does
place the ultimate trust of fair-
ness in the hands of regular
people.
It is an amazing constitution-
al honor that every citizen in
this country has.
People try to get out of jury
duty all the time and I must
admit, I was kind of hoping
that I wasn't selected for the
job. Regular life gets in the way
of doing something like jury
duty.
But as a regular citizen, I
don't think I can get any closer
to ideals of Thomas Jefferson,
John Hancock and the 54 other
patriots who signed our
Declaration of Independence
as I did when I sat on this jury.
The. jury system does not
guarantee that justice will
always be realized.
Juries are made up of people
and people have been known
to make poor decisions.
But the brilliance of our sys-
tem is that it is truly committed
to regular citizens making the
final decision. That is the ulti-
mate sign of respect that a gov-
ernment can grant to its citi-
zens.
If you get the opportunity to
serve on a jury, I'd urge you not
to pass up the experience.
It will help remind you why
our form of government is the
best one ever developed.

R responsible
citizenship is
at the heart of
American democra-
cy. In penning the
immortal words of
the Declaration of
Independence,
Thomas Jefferson
argued for a new and
radical vision. Lou
Government in
America was not to OTI
be based on the arbi- VON
trary exercise of
power. It was to be a contract; a
contract between publicly cho-
sen leaders and ordinary citi-
zens.
The terms of that contract
have now been clear for more
than 200 years. Leaders have
the right to govern only insofar
as citizens give their consent to
be governed. Citizens, in turn,
.have a responsibility: a respon-
sibility to exercise informed
judgment in giving -their con-
sent
Jefferson underscored the
fundamental importance of
informed citizenship when he
wrote that the "objects of pri-
mary education" are to
"instruct the mass of our citi-
zens in these, their rights,
interests and duties as men
and citizens." One of these
objects, Jefferson argued, was
"To understand his duties to his
neighbors and country, and to
discharge with competence the
functions confided to him by
either..."
The education of responsible
citizens was, in the view of the
nation's founders, to be a pri-
mary purpose of a systeimn of
public ' education. In his
farewell address, George
Washington called for the cre-
ation of "institutions for the


tions or burglaries and rob-
beries during a one-month

CES unique challenge
of preparing young
people to meet the critically
important responsibilities of
America's democratic contract.
As we approach the close of
the first decade of the 21st
Century, there is cause for con-
cern about the quality of
American citizenship. For
more than a decade now, schol-
ars have pointed to a discon-
nect between citizens - particu-
larly young citizens - and the
civic world around them. We
have one of the lowest voter
turnout rates in the world.
Participation in virtually all
forms of civic life appears to
have declined during the past
half century. School reforms
appear to be reshaping the
civic mission of public schools.
As the "Greatest Generation"
passes from the scene, there
are real questions about how
we will replace their commit-
ment to the common good.
With these concerns in mind,
we .(Graham and Frey) asked
the Lou Frey Institute at the
University of Central Florida
and the Bob Graham Center at
the University of Florida to
work with others across the
stale to review the major issues
affecting civic education in
Florida. This report reflects
the results of that review. As

the report's recommendations
will make clear, there is a com-
pelling need to take near-term
actions to strengthen civic edu-
cation in the state.
Having said that, however,
we view this report as only a
point of departure; the chal-
lenges of building and main-
taining the enlightened discre-
tion of Florida's citizens will
require the combined talents
and long-term commitment of
all of those who care deeply
about the state's future.
From the perspective of
Florida's civic future, the big
story of the 2006 elections was
not that Democrats captured
control of Congress, or that Bill
Nelson was re-elected to the
United States Senate, or even
that Charlie Crist became our
state's 44th governor - but that
the significance of these politi-
cal developments may be lost
on many Floridians. For all of
the hundreds of millions of dol-
lars spent on political adver-
tisements and thousands of
news stories aired or written
about the candidates, too many
Floridians still have little or no
idea who represents their
interests in Washington,
Tallahassee or even their own
local communities - and even
less idea how those interests
are represented, or how they
as citizens can influence and
shape that representation.
The numbers tell a troubling
story about Floridians' lack of
engagement with civic leaders,
institutions and culture.
Eligible Floridians exercise
their vote far less often than .
citizens in. other states.
According to a 2006 report.
Florida ranked 39th in average
voter turnout for the 2002 and
2004 general elections.

For the November 2006 gen-
eral election, turnout in

46.8 percent. In September
2006, primary election turnout
was an abysmal 19.6 percent.
Both figures were nearly 20
percent less than the historical
average between 1954 and
2004.
According to the 2006 report
cited above, the same Florida
that ranks fourth in population
size rates a woeful 49th in rates
of volunteering.
A 2005 University of Central
Florida survey of more than
1,600 Central Floridians found
that two-thirds could not name
either of Florida's two United
States Senators - both of whom
reside in Central Florida.
A 2005 statewide Florida Bar
survey revealed that more than
40 percent of Floridians could
not correctly identify the three
branches of American govern-
ment - and that nearly 40 per-
cent could not define the con-
cept of "checks and balances."
These statistics and others
like them suggest two disturb-
ing trends that threaten
Florida's civic future: first, that
many Floridians are not moti-
vated .to participate either in
the political process or other
aspects of our state's civic life;
and second, that even if they
had the necessary desire to
participate, many Floridians
would not know where or how
to begin.

Simplistic response will not solve a complex problem


Unless they've spent the
past couple of years on
Mars, anyone reading
this has felt the impact of
recent events on their wallets.
Insurance companies have
deserted Florida in droves,
leaving those that remain to
charge sky-high premiums for
coverage. Fuel costs have
climbed to unprecedented lev-
els in the face of Mideast
unrest and the demand for oil
by developing countries. And,
most significantly for home-
owners, property taxes have
soared in response to unparal-
leled increases in real estate
values.
In a recent issue of the
COystal River Current, Mayor
Ron Kitchen's answer to rising
property taxes would be to cap
city spending based on an
undefined formula of inflation
(presumably pegged to the
Consumer Price Index) and
population growth. He cites
Hillsborough County as an
example of this approach.
This is a deceptively simplis-


tic answer that
ignores some of the
fundamental eco-
nomic realities that
small cities face.
Like individuals,
Crystal River must

erage, fuel, elec-
tricity and consum-
able supplies.

River does not enjoy the
economies of scale that allow it
to negotiate the same level of'
price discounts from vendors.
The cost increases for goods
and services that the city sees
from year to year are much
closer to those faced by the
average consumer - that's you
and me.
According to the U.S. Bureau
of Labor Statistics, the
Consumer Price Index rose by
4 percent between 2005 and
2007. Has your cost of living
increased by only 4 percent in


the past two years?
Mine neither Nor has
Crystal River's.
That's because the
CPI is an indicator
that looks at the
entire country, not
just Florida. Con-
sequently, it does not
adequately consider
Kirk the impact of the dra-
ST matic price increases
that affect only
MN Florida residents
since it is an average
value diluted by lower costs
elsewhere in the nation.
The CPI also does not direct-
ly measure real estate prices
and resulting property taxes.
Finally, the CPI is a backward-
looking indicator It can tell us
what has happened in the past,
but it cannot predict the future.
The CPI is a poor tool for meas-
uring costs locally and a totally
ineffective one for predicting
costs in the future.
Crystal River's budget
process must look to the future
to Ibe effective. As individuals


putting together our household
budgets, we make our best
guess at future costs to balance
our needs against our wants.
Developing the city's budget is
no different The council and
city staff must make realistic
cost projections based on real-
world, objective information
and not be shackled by arbi-
trary limits - like the
Consumer Price Index'- of lit-
tle validity.
Crystal River's budget prob-
lems involve complex issues
that won't be solved by glib,
simplistic fixes. There is no sil-
ver bullet. I believe that
answer lies in thinking outside
the box for a variety of innova-
tive measures.
In his article, Mayor Kitchen
remarked that several council
members have considered a
city sales tax. And he's correct
... well, sort of.
What he failed to mention
was that this sales tax - no
more than one-half to 1 cent-
would have offset ad valorem
taxes and resulted in a reduc-


tion of the millage rate.
So what would be the advan-
tage to the residents of Crystal
River? Consider that 40,000-
50,000 non-residents travel
through our city each day. Of
these, a significant percentage
purchase fuel, eat in our
restaurants, sleep in our hotels
and shop in our stores. Each
transaction would help offset
the costs of city services
(streets, police protection,
effect on water quality, etc.)
that these visitors enjoy, but at
present do not pay for.
The benefits of this plan are
a drop in ad valorem taxes cou-
pled with a more equitable
cost-sharing of city services by
all of the people who use them.
This is only one example of a
creative approach to address-
ing our budget issues.
Mayor Kitchen also noted
that the city should only tax its
residents for what is needed to
run the city and to supply the
services that the residents
request In this statement of'
the obvious, I agree with him


completely. Platitudes aside,
the hard part of the process, as
in household budgeting, is sep-
arating the needs from the
wants because they are so intri-
cately intertwined.
In eating this elephant, we
have to take it one bite at a
time. The council has the
responsibility to examine each
budget line item critically in
making "need vs. want" deci-
sions.
But, the council cannot oper-
ate effectively in a vacuum. It
relies on input from city resi-
dents to tell it what level of
service they want and what
they are willing to pay for.
I cannot overemphasize the
importance of citizen partici-
pation at budget workshops
and council meetings. It is,
after all, your money.

Life at CFCC: The story of a proud alumnus


When I first moved from
my home in the great
white north, to the
small town of Inverness, I was
19 years of age, newly married,
and uncertain as to which
career I would ultimately find
myself in.
It was the summer of 1994. I
already had spent one year at a
large university with a major of
"undecided," and found myself
in a new state and in unfamil-
iar territory. I always knew I
wanted to go to college, but
where and for what I did not
know.
I must admit, my one year of
experience at the university
was less than positive. I attend-
ed high school in a small town
where just over 100 students
were in my graduating class. I

sizes in high school to huge lec-

they're going to literally kill
him by firing him. This is a
hate crime and I think they
should be told so.


ture halls that easily
could have held my
high school graduat-
ing class in the one
room. Because the
class sizes were so
large, the instructors
used microphones to
be heard, and stu-
dent participation in
the classroom was Jei
limited to the one App:
hour a week break-
out sessions conduct- GU
ed by student assis; COL
tants to the professor.
I quickly committed my Social
Security number to memory, as
it seemed everyone I came in
contact with was more interest-
ed in my number than my
name.
Shortly after I had settled
into my -new home in
Inverness, I was discussing col-


.1


lege with a friend of
mine. I mentioned
that I wanted to con-
tinue my education,
but was uncertain
where I would
attend. My friend
suggested Central
Florida Community
College. The con-
emy cept of a community
egate college was foreign
to me. Where I came
EST from, the choices for
UMN post-secondary edu-.4
cation were limited
to either the university or a
vocational institute. A commu-
nity college was never an
option. After learning about
the close proximity of the
Lecanto campus of CFCC, I was
very interested to see what
CFCC was all about.
Upon doing research into


CFCC and its campuses in
Lecanto and Ocala, I decided
to enroll. It turned out to be a
life-changing decision. After
just a few classes, I came to,
realize that CFCC was offering
me a formula for success: small
class sizes coupled with a car-
ing faculty that knew me by
name rather than by number.
The one-on-one interaction
with CFCC professors allowed
for me to learn in a way that
was not possible for me at the
-university. The counselors
assisted me in focusing on a
major and a course of study,
and by the time I finished my
AA degree from CFCC, I was
ready to go back to a university
to complete my undergraduate
and graduate degrees.
A few years ago, I moved
back to Citrus County and
decided to take a drive to visit


Thanks? No thanks .................. Sound OFF ----


I get a thank you from one of
my two newspaper carriers. I
don't remember which one and
I don't care. I don't get written
thank yous from the trash col-
lectors who happen to be on
the truck when I hand out holi-
day money, and I don't care.
Get a-life.
Fiat-tire help
Tuesday, Feb. 28, two very
nice young men came to our
rescue in Wal-Mart's parking
lot. They saw that we had a flat
tire and they had it changed in
no time at all. We can't thank
you enough. God's blessings -
you're both in our prayers.
Thank you.
Well-known scam
This is in response to "Watch
out for scam": Thanks for tip-


ping us off to the big scam,
Kojak. They've been doing that
since the Internet was invented.
Cold turkey
In response to the person
who asks what happens when a
drug user is arrested and taken
to jail: People on drugs are not
weaned off drugs when they
get to jail. They are completely
cut off from their former
source of- drugs. If they can't-
make bail bond right away,
they are held 'til arraignment,
which often is about four weeks
later. If they can't make bond
at that point, they're held per-
haps for another date.
Sometimes, they're held until
the case is resolved. There are
programs, such as drug pre-
trial extension, that allow the
user to get treatment, and


.there's a wonderful drug court
in town. But often people who
have committed serious crimes
are not allowed to participate
in those programs ... Some
very serious drug users simply
get time in Department of
Corrections instead of an
opportunity to heal. The most
serious drug users - those who
have been using for many years
in this addiction and are very
serious - are not given a sec-
ond chance or a third chance.
They often simply go directly to
Department of Corrections for
a long, long sentence.
Good work
The contractors on (county
road) 491 and 486 should take
a journey down to Crystal River
and observe that contractor
there. What a glorious job he's


my old community college. I
was amazed to find out that the
Lecanto campus where I
attended most of my classes
now has its own 100-acre facili-
ty, no longer sharing its campus
with the high school. The Ocala
campus also looked different
with new buildings such as the
Ewers Century Center and a
new road layout that ties the
entire campus together.
After telling some friends at
work about my drive, they men-
tioned similar experiences of
how the campus has changed
since they attended CFCC. In
fact, I was surprised to find out
that nearly a third of my
coworkers attended CFCC, and
it is through them that I was
introduced to the CFCC
Alumni Association.
What a great network of
friends and graduates that

doing. I don't know why he
doesn't get more contracts in
this county or state.
Wanted to not be here
I wish my mother had had
the love and intelligence to
abort me more than 50 years .
ago. Instead, I lived a life of
physical, mental, sexual and
verbal abuse heaped upon an
unwanted child. Every child has
the right to be wanted. If that
right isn't there during gesta-
tion, then the fetus should be
terminated. It's better for all.
Unwieldy Inverness
What is the attraction that
the county has to put their
offices in Inverness? Inverness
is hard to get around. It always
was, probably always will be.
They buy these old buildings,
have to work them over, and
then they're trapped into that.


CFCC has through its alumni
association. I welcomed the
invitation to join and have
been an active member ever
since. Through the alumni
association, I have been given
the opportunity to develop
relationships with fellow alum-
ni at events such as the annual
alumni fall luncheon and
spring homecoming barbecue.
I also have been given the
opportunity to assist the col-
lege by volunteering in major
fundraisers such as the Taste of
Ocala and the Equine Expo. It,
is truly a joy to giving back to
the college that gave me so
much.

You still can't get in and out of
them. Look at that courthouse
over there. It's almost impossi-
ble to get in there.
Seeking therapist
Now that Dr. Janet Martin's
chiropractic office is closed,
does anyone know where the
licensed massage therapist is
practicing? I'd appreciate any
help in finding her.

power corrupts. It seems
appropriate to give officials the
benefit of the doubt but you'd
have to be in first-degree
denial to think all are beyond
reproach. History is ripe with
juicy political scandals.
The federal Freedom of
Information Act and Florida's
Sunshine Laws play a central
role in providing access to
information that, if hidden,
could undermine our way of
life.
Granted, public information
and corrupt politicians are two
different animals, but with our
laws that stipulate public


access to information and
meetings, politicians are held
more accountable and are less
likely to listen to that little
devil sitting on their left shoul-
der.
On a local level here in
Florida, the Sunshine Law as it
applies to public meetings is a
special area of concern.
Elected officials who sit on
the same board (county com-
mission or city council mem-
bers, for example) can be
together in public but can only
discuss business to be acted ,on
by the board in public meetings
that are advertised.
What's troubling, though, is
that some officials are so bone-
headed as to flaunt the
Sunshine Law.
As a young reporter covering


the Punta Gorda City Council, I
flat-out asked a council mem-
ber how a decision before the
board could have been made so
quickly and with minimal dis-
cussion.
Being an annoying reporter,
as sometimes reporters need to
be, I tagged along with one
councilman as he headed for
his car after the meeting. When
I asked him about the hasty
decision with minimal discus-
sion, of which he voted with the
majority, he had the audacity to
turn to me and say, "Haven't
you ever heard of the tele-
phone?"
He was a likeable eoibugh
guy but, based on his comment,
he was not ethically suited to
serve the public.
Why should the public care?


.Well....
At one time in the past cen-
tury, a citizen of that city to our
south donated a stretch of
shoreline to Punta Gorda with
the provision that it forever be
kept as parkland.
A developer who owned
some abutting property asked
the city to rezone the parkland
and let him-develop the area.
There was an uproar of opposi-
tion from the public.
Not so mysteriously, but
stealthily and out of the public
eye, the ownership of the land
was passed from the city to the
,developer and a condo soon
stood by the place intended for
public enjoyment
That was long ago and far
away.
What should be of concern to


people in and around Citrus
County are semi-frequent calls
we receive at the newspaper
expressing concern that mem-
bers of an elected body (or two)
are coordinating efforts on
public issues out of the sun-
shine. The common belief is
that a non-board member com-
municates with certain elected,
officials to build consensus
and, later, agreements are
reached with minimal discus-
sion at board meetings.
I have no proof of this but the
rumors are out there.,
That's really no more ethical
than picking up the phone and
directly violating the Sunshine
Law, We don't need public offi-
cials who have such low regard
for those who put them in posi-
tions of power.


Unless newspaper-types and
First Amendment advocates
can somehow change Sunshine
Sunday to a Sunshine Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
or Friday and have it declared
a national holiday where folks
can enjoy a day off work, I
doubt the masses will rise up ,
and carry the freedom-of-infor-
mation flag to new heights.
Still, Sunshine Sunday is a
day worth observing - but it'd
be nice to get a day off work to
fully reflect on the wonders of
freedom of information.

CRIST
Continued from Page 1C

are committed to making sure
that they have access in fact to
their government.
Q.: What would you like to
see the office accomplish?
Crist: The goals of the office
are to make sure there is a
clear, I should say a crystal
clear, window for the citizens
to the state of Florida to view,
observe, monitor and watch
their government in action.
And having an office that is
dedicated to that purpose with-
in the Office of the Governor, I
think, ensures that. That is the
hope, that is the desire and I
think that's going to be the
result.
Q.: The Office of Open
Government will ensure com-
pliance with Florida's sun-
shine laws by all executive
branch agencies subject to


your control and is a great first
step, but how will this affect
other state and local govern-
mental entities not under your
control? In other words, how
do you think the Office of Open
Government can help ensure
compliance at all levels of gov-
ernment so that our next
statewide compliance audit
will show marked improve-
ment during the past few
years?
Crist: No. 1, I think it sets a
good example. I certainly hope
so. No. 2,1 I think that in working
in conjunction with the attor-
ney general's office, other
agencies within the executive
branch of government, having
an Office of Open Government
gives them a ready-made place
to go to if they have any ques-
tions about interpretation of
Florida's sunshine law. Raising
the visibility, if you will, I think
will have a positive impact on
all agencies in state govern-
ment and local government


throughout Florida, so that our
citizens have a better opportu-
nity to watch it.
Q.: Do you plan on coordinat-
ing with the attorney general's
office in this area?
Crist: I do. And I think that,
you know, having been attorney
general and been exposed to
the enforcement of the laws
from the executive branch in
the attorney general's office,
now as governor, it gives you
even that much more of an
opportunity to project from the
"bully pulpit" that the governor
has to re-emphasize, if you will,
the importance of open govern-
ment, the importance of our
democratic process, the access
that should be granted to all of'
our citizens, and to work with
others, including the attorney
general, to make sure that that
happens.
Q.: Each year the legislature
considers, and all too frequent-
ly passes, numerous exceptions
to our constitutional right of


access to the records and meet-
ings of government Will the
Office of Open Government
take part in the legislative
process by reviewing the pro-
posed exemptions? Will that be
left to your legislative liaison?
Crist: I think we will utilize
both; both the legislative liai-
son and the Office of Open
Government I think it is impor-
tant to have all hands on deck,
if you will, to make sure that
these laws that are so precious
to the people of Florida are
protected; and that we are
mindful and watchful to make
sure that their interest is, in
fact, protected; that they have
the continuing ability to watch
their government in action
always.
Q.: What sorts of factors will
you consider when deciding
whether to sign into law or veto
open government exemptions?
Crist: The area that has
changed, frankly, in the history
of our country, the history of


the world now, is the area of
security, particularly as it
relates to a post 9/11 world. And
so issues of security would be
the factors that I would be most
amenable to, if you can count
that as an area where I think
it's an important factor to con-
sider and probably the only
important factor to consider in
any further exemptions that
might be granted. I would
rather not have to review any,
but I would rather our world
was more secure than it is
today. And so being mindful of
that, I want to make sure that
we protect our citizens first,
not reveal information that
might put them in harm's way,
and hopefully we won't have a
whole lot of those to even
review.
Q.: What do you think you
and other government officials
can do to emphasize that open
government laws are for the
public, not just the media? Is
there a way to encourage the


average citizen to make use of
the law?
Crist: I am sure there is. I
think some of the most useful
applications of the law have
frankly been done by the
media. I mean, we get
requests continuously, you
know, for different kinds of
records, reports, information,
and we gladly provide it. And I
think the example sets a good
one, a good tone, if you will, as
to how we ought to comport
ourselves as elected officials,
as public officials, as servants
of the people to have those
records, continue to' go for-
ward. But citizens themselves
can certainly avail themselves
of that opportunity as well for,.
you know, for city council:
meetings, county commission
meetings throughout the state
of Florida. And I would hope
that they would continue to do
so and I would encourage
them to do so.

governments and state agen-
cies, I want to remind them and
I will be reminding them of the
fact that there is a compliance
requirement I also have some
ideas to go along with in the
future to further open up some
of the things that are not as eas-
ily found today, and that may
require some legislation down
the road. But I believe that
those are the kinds of things we
can do to advocate a good open
government
Q.: The Office of Open
Government will ensure com-
pliance with all executive
branch agencies subject to the
governor's control, but that
leaves a huge gap, other state
and local government entities
not under the Office of Open
Government. What steps will
you take to help ensure compli-
ance at all levels of government


so that our next state-wide
compliance audit will show a
marked improvement over the
past few years?
McCollum: First of all, you
and I, that is, the First
Amendment Foundation and I,
have a manual that is pub-
lished every year. And this
manual is going to continue to
be published with your assis-
tance, and this is designed
largely for local governments.
It was distributed there, to
cities, to counties, to other
local entities. We are not only
going to distribute it, we are
going to try to continue and set
up an education program. It's
right now we are trying to
determine, because of the open
government office that the gov-
ernor has opened, how much of
that work is done by his office
and how much of it is done by
ours. But I can assure you we
are going to reach out and we
are going to literally go over
meetings and seminars and
communicate with local gov-


ernments to remind them regu-
larly that is what they need to
be looking to. And where
they're not complying, then I
think they're going to need to
step up and do it And we also
want to let them know, of
course, we are a resource for
that, but we want them to be
reminded that they've got
responsibilities just -like the
state does to hold their meet-
ings in public.
Q.: Florida arguably has the
most progressive open govern-
ment laws in the country. But
there is always room for
improvement and reform.
Would you support an initiative
to thoroughly review Florida's
famed open government laws
with an eye toward reform?
McCollum: I would and I
have some ideas about that I
know that Sen. Rhonda Storms,
for example, has a bill that has-
n't been introduced that she
has been working on. I talked
to her about it I would like to
work with her and others on to


provide a requirement that all
contracts of the state and local
governments are put up on a
Web site, that they're posted.
That people can actually see
and know how to look at their
government from the stand-
point of what kind of business
we are doing. Perhaps, there
could be something done with
regard to payments that are
made, too; checks that are writ-
ten, things that are open in
public. In my own office, we
have been considering some-
thing I think would be impor-
tant, and that is, for us to post
the contracts voluntarily that
we make. with outside law
firms. I thihk that would be a
very good thing for all attor-
neys generals of the states to do
and perhaps we could provide
incentives to others to do that,
too. There is no reason why
people can't go to my Web site,
which they do right now, look-
ing for issues on a child preda-
tor and where they can report
scams, but they can't go there


and find out how we are con-
ducting our business. There is
nothing that should be secret
about any of this.
Q.: It's Sunshine Week, a
week designated by the nation-
al media to bring attention to
the importance of these issues
and the public's ability to over-
see its government and hold it
accountable. Why is it do you
think public officials some-
times have a hard time remem-
bering that government serves
the people best when it oper-
ates in the sunshine?
McCollum: I think there is
always a tendency to want to
get a deal done, do something,
you know, especially in the leg-
islative arena, but sometimes
in other arenas. But in the leg-
islature we think of the state
legislature, but you are really
talking about local city councils
and commissions and authori-
ties like expressway authori-
ties, and they're always -
there is a fear that if they are
discussing this where the


media is there, the public is
there, that somebody won't
speak as frankly as they
would otherwise. Now there
is some truth to that. I have
been a congressman, I have
been a legislator, and we
don't always have the degree
of open government in
Washington that you have
here in Florida. But I think
that for the most part people
are better served by the open
government part of it, partic-
ularly the Public Records Act
part. I really like that fea-
ture. I can understand why
somebody might want to run
off in a huddle in a corner to
say, hey, Joe, will you cut this
deal with me? I also under-
stand why we would like to
see that open because you
don't want them cutting a
deal that is going to involve
some special interest. But
when it comes to public
records, there is absolutely
no reason why that shouldn't
be always open.

Weather source
I have DISH Network in
Inverness. For the person who
wants to know where they get
the weather: They can go to
channel 10 at 6 o'clock and 11
o'clock at night. They can get
the weather news on channel
13 at 10 o'clock at night. Hope
this helps them.
Paying triple
I think it's a shame and a
crime that the insurance com-
panies are trying to triple insur-
ance. I called even the builder,
and the builder can build my
house, with all the appliances,
for $81,200. And the insurance
company says no, it takes
$150,000 to build my house
and I've been underinsured and
that's why they tripled it. Now
this is all wrong because I
know the builder and my house
is only six years old. I think it's
a shame because they're trying
to make us pay triple the
amount for our insurance and
then, how nice they are to tell
us, we can make the payments
in five payments and they only
charge 18 percent interest
each time on the total amount.
This is a crime and should be
stopped.
Weekly watering
We have deed restrictions in
Sugarmill Woods and we have
water restrictions now of
watering one day a week only.
But apparently it doesn't apply
to most people in Sugarmill
Woods because they water
every day, twice a day. And per-
sonally, I do it once a week,


just like it says, and the grass
looks healthy and fine this time
of year, in the fall, in the win-
ter. When the summer comes,
it might get a little hard to do.
But I mean I get by with once a
week, so why do the rest of
these people got to water two
or three times a day and two or
three times a week, every day
of the week? Including up on
the entrance of Sugarmill
Woods., I mean, up there they
water every day. I go by there
every time at night, late at
night, they water every single
day. Do they have a special per-
mit? Are they a special case?
Am I being made a fool of
because I water one day a
week and they don't have to? I
mean we've got water restric-
tions, so let's get with them.
Gas going up
The Sound Off section of the
Chronicle is a great tool ... The
Sound Off section's a great,
great tool. I would like to say
that recently, it's now March 1,
and the first three days
between last weekend and now,
in three days between the end
of February and the beginning
of March, gasoline has risen
30 cents a gallon. Isn't that
unreal? I mean come on, peo-
ple. Let's have some stuff in
the Sound Off about these gas
prices. And I see it's still going
up even more. I looked on the
TV today and the stock market
thing, and even though the
stock market fell 416 points in
one day, the gas went up.
Amazing. How can this hap-
pen? I mean, are these old peo-


pie just getting rich-
er and richer and O 0
richer? Maybe the
president don't care
about the public. It
seems that way any-
way. But gas prices
- let's hear about
them.
Shame on CALL
Largo 563-
Shame on the city
of Largo. If after 14
years of service they can't treat
their city manager any better
than this, I for one will never
spend another dime in that
city.
Word of mouth
This is for the person who
paid $437 for a kitchen faucet:
You certainly were taken advan-
tage of. You can purchase a
good American-made faucet for
less than $100 at more than
one supplier in Citrus County.
The labor could be as much as
one hour and that is also less
than $100. The only advice I
have for you is to tell all of
your friends, neighbors and rel-
atives who this plumber was
and what he did and what he
charged. One way to prevent
such tradesmen from taking
advantage of others is by word
of mouth.
Rising fast
I don't understand how gas
can go up so fast in a couple of
days. It was $2.40 two days
ago and now it's $2.49. That's
9 cents more a gallon. What in
the world is going on with this


.0579


country? We are the
foreigners, and the
foreigners are mak-
ing out like million-
aires. It's a darned
shame. They're ille-
gal, most of them.
They get away with
everything and we
have to suffer and
pay for them. It's a
disgrace.
Give from
heart


I'm calling about the person
who wants to be thanked for
giving a gift for the newspaper
carrier. I think that if they
wanted to be patted on the
shoulder and told how wonder-
ful they are, they should wait
outside when the guy delivers it
and hand it to him. I think
when you give a gift to some-
body, that is personal and they
don't have to send you a letter.
I think these people are being
very selfish. I don't understand
why they have to have a letter
to thank them for that. When
you give a gift, you give a gift
from your heart and you don't
want someone to pat you on
the shoulder and say, "Thank
you, you done a big deed."
That's not right.
Price of stamps
I'm calling in regard to the
post office wanting a new
increase for their postal
stamps, from 39 cents to 41
cents. I don't think they
deserve anything. I sent mail
express overnight and it took
six days. Unbelievable.


Road drops off
It's about time that the coun-
ty commissioners got off their
ruckus. Along (County Road)
486 there have been several
accidents due to the fact
there's a certain drop-off that
is even 6 inches deep. People
are going off it by accident but
they can't get back on. And if
they do get back on, they flip
their vehicle. How many more
accidents is going to happen?
And one of these days, it might
be one of their loved ones or
one of their children or their
grandchildren. I'm just trying to
make this clear; we need some-
thing done today, not tomorrow
and not yesterday.
Uve and let live
The more I read the Sound
Off section of the paper, the
more I am convinced that
Citrus County has a lot of old,
mouthy, busybody, unhappy
people with no lives living in it,
who want to make life miser-
able for everyone. They want
things their way and only their
way. They do not believe in live
and let live.
Bring back draft
I agree with the armchair
pseudo-patriot who says we
should not cut and run in Iraq.
We must stay until it's over and
the fat lady sings. The U.S.
casualties - 3,150-plus KIAs,
to date, and WIAs, who are sur-
viving at a greater percentage
thanks to our heroic medical
personnel - are all within mili-
tary casualty loss estimates.
There is no cause to worry.
Bush believes that things are


better than the press would
have us believe. Troop morale
is high and they are willing and
eager to fight ... We are, of
course, not winning. Each
insurgent terrorist/Iraqi patriot
we kill is replenished by two
others. Not to worry, there will '
be plenty to go around for
years to come. We need a draft
so millions of young people
can share in the experience of '
Iraq and the U.S. Army would
not have to recruit felons and
educationally challenged youth.;
Fight for PSC
This is in response to
Thursday, March 1, in regards
to the PSC spot for Nancy
Argenziano. Mrs. Argenziano:
Please do not pull your name.

Knee surgery
A sports injury necessitated
a partial knee replacement
which didn't solve the problem
and I still have pain. It's been
suggested a total knee
replacement is in order.
However, one surgeon stated
that may not help, either. Are
there any readers out there
with experience who can help
with my dilemma?

New service club targets young adults


CHERI HARRIS
charris@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle

Twenty-somethings in Citrus County
looking to network with their peers can
check out the new Rotaract of Citrus
,County.
The newly chartered club for the 18-
to- 30 set offers members the opportuni-
ty to get acquainted with other folks
their age while getting involved in com-
'munity service.,
Rotary Club of Crystal River Presi-
'dent Cliff Pierson said his club spon-
sored the new group in order to encour-
age younger people to get involved in
Rotary and the community.
' "I moved here when I was in my 20s
and there wasn't much for that age
group there, so it's always been some-
,thing I've been wanting to do, is create
,an orgaruzation for them."


The new Rotaract
club is the first in
West Central Flor-
ida, Pierson said,
though there are
about 8,000 Rotaract
clubs in about 200
countries.
Because Pierson
helped start the new
club here, he is now
the district chair-


man of Rotaract. He hopes to start
Rotaract clubs in St. Petersburg and
other areas.
Alan Monroe is president of the new
Rotaract club. His goal is to grow the
club to 40 members by the time his term
ends at the end of June. Currently, the
club has about 25 members.
He said one of the biggest obstacles to
building membership is getting the
word out about the new group.


The most effec-
tive method for
reaching potential
members, Monroe
said, is for commu-
nity business lead-
ers to identify
potential members
within their organi-
zations.
Annual fee to join
Rotaract is $60.


Membership requirements are to attend
60 percent of meetings, which are every
other week, and to attend one commu-
nity service or fundraising event a year.
"We want to keep it open so folks of
our age can kind of get out there,"
Monroe said.
Though young adults are allowed in
Rotary clubs, Pierson said Rotaract has
a less expensive annual fee and evening
meetings, which are often more conven-


ient for those with less flexible woi
schedules.
The new club's first fundraiser will b
a kickball tournament, Kick for a Caus
which will start at 9 a.m. May 19 on th
grounds of the Lecanto campus c
Central Florida Community Colleg
Early registration is $10 per perso
before 5 p.m. May 4. After that, register
tion cost is $15.
Proceeds will benefit the Citru
County Foster Parent Associatio
Monroe said the tournament is inten(
ed to become an annual event that ber
efits a different cause each year.
Monroe, 23, said he joined Rotarac
because the Rotary club in Inverne,
sponsored him to attend Seminar
Tomorrow's Leaders, a weeklong lead
ership training program.
"I knew that one day I'd be in Rotary
Monroe said, "and this is just the oppo.
tunity for a steppingstone."

Loves


job, not


the pay

DEAR BRUCE: I am 41,
single and work for a
small private company.
I have been in this business for
15 years. With my current job, I
have the potential of earning
an extra $10,000 a year in
bonuses. I love my job; howev-
er, other people in the same
field can earn $10,000 to
$20,000 more a year than me.
Do you think I should talk to
my boss? On one side, I should
just be happy. How many peo-
ple can actually say they love
their work? But my friends
keep telling me I should say
something or look for another
company to work for before I
am too old. - Barb, via e-mail
DEAR BARB: It seems to
me: "If it ain't broke, don't fix
it." If you are happy and enjoy
going to work every day, you
are blessed. Relatively few of
us experience that emotion.
Ask yourself: Would an addi-
tional $150 t&$200 a week after
taxes make that much of a dif-
ference in your life if you are
miserable or just not enthusi-
astic about your daily activi-
ties? I have always said the guy
who hates his job is underpaid
and, conversely, those who
love their work are well
rewarded with things other
than money.
DEAR BRUCE: I paid a
credit-card bill with a check
Shortly afterward, I received
some overdraft notices from
my bank that I knew were not
possible. As it turned out, the
check was honored at the bank
with an extra zero thrown in.
After pointing this out to my
bank, which accepted respon-
sibility and notified the credit-
card company, I was reim-
bursed and letters were sent to
each of the people whose
checks had bounced, letting
them know the mistake was
not mine. This is the kind of
thing that can't happen.
People think banks don't
. make mistakes; everyone
makes mistakes, including
credit-card companies and
banks. Please warn your read-
ers. - Reader, via e-mail
DEAR READER: You are
absolutely right. Everyone
makes ihistakes, and every-
one's pencils come with
erasers. When an institution
declares, "We never make a
mistake," you know they are
vulnerable.
DEAR BRUCE: We have fall-
en into the time-share trap,
and I hope you can help us.
Are we destined to pay $500 a
year (although the price goes
Sup annually) for maintenance
fees for the rest of our lives? Is
there any way we can get rid of
this condo? - F.T., via e-mail
DEAR F.T.:. You are a mem-
ber of a large fraternity, people
who have purchased time-
shares to their everlasting
rk regret.
Several things can be con-
me sidered. There are legitimate
e, companies that resell time-
le shares on a national basis,
of with the average being 15 per-
e. cent to 20 percent on the dol-
*n lar. Say, for example, you paid
a- $10,000; if you were very fortu-
nate, you would get $1,500 to
is $2,000. You might be able to
n. find a charity to which you
d- could donate the time-share
n- and then claim the entire
$10,000 as a gift.
ct Aside from that, the only
ss other alternative is just to stop
4 paying. The likelihood is that
d- they may fuss a little, but they
will foreclose and that might
," be the end of it. However, there

Circle of Fire, 1813 U.S. 41 N. in
Inverness, has very exciting news
this month. Due to the large
amount of Swarovski crystals we
purchase, we are being awarded
further discounts on our top quality,
direct-manufactured beads. This,
as always, will be reflected in our
store and will be passed on to all
our beading friends. These
reduced prices are already in effect

As Swarovski dealers we have *
unfortunately noticed many people
coming into the store with "online
fakes," as well as damaged crys-
tals from other places. We want
you to know that our crystals come
straight,from the factory untouched
and are the highest quality guaran-
teed. We will be happy to examine
any questionable crystals you may
have at no charge to you, as well
as weigh them for correct lead con-
tent and correct color. We also only
carry top quality gemstones, Czech
glass, seed beads and all other
materials. Call 344- 3473 (FIRE).

Diabetes program
merits ADA recognition
Citrus Memorial Health System's
Diabetes Self-Management
Education Center has received a
recognition certificate from the
American Diabetes Association.
ADA believes that high-quality edu-
cation is an essential component of
effective diabetes treatment and
assures that educational programs
meet the national standards for the
programs. These standards were
developed'and tested under the
auspices of the National Diabetes
Advisory Board in 1983 and were
revised by the diabetes community
in 1994 and 2000.
"The process gives professionals
a national standard by which to
measure the quality of services
they provide, comments Carol
McHugh, R.N., certified diabetic
educator and manager of the CMH
Diabetes Center. "And, of course, it
assures the consumer that he or
she will likely receive high-quality
service." The recognition status is
verified by an official certificate
from ADA and awarded for three
years.
According to the American
Diabetes Association, there are
20.8 million people or 7 percent of
the population in the United States
who have diabetes. While an esti-
mated 14.6 million have been diag-
nosed, unfortunately, 6.2 million
people are not aware that they
have this disease. Each day, about
4,110 people are diagnosed with
diabetes.
For information about Citrus
Memorial's Diabetes Self-Man-
agement Education Program and

Citrus Memorial Health System
is a 198-bed, not-for-profit commu-
nity hospital, providing care to
Citrus County and environs for a

ed by the Joint Commission, is

Noah's Ark
sails into Inverness
Building on the growing demand
of at home and group parties,
Noah's Ark Animal Workshop
arrives in Inverness.
"It is exciting to be able to offer
the Inverness community such fun,
unique products that really bring
out an individual's creative side,"
said Nicole Newhart, an independ-


ent crewmember for Noah's Ark.
"The fun and joy of creating your
own stuffed animal, from start to
finish, can't be matched."
Noah's Ark Animal Workshop is
a traveling "Stuff-N-Fluff" animal
workshop where children and par-
ents (grandparents, aunts or
uncles), come together to stuff,
name and love the animal of their
choice and personalize their new
friend with outfits, accessories and
sound chips.
The workshop is designed to
stimulate imagination, inspiration
and love in children of all ages by
providing a memorable, hands-on
activity. Because Noah's Ark is a
traveling "Stuff-N-Fluff' workshop, it
is convenient to "set up shop" at
home birthday parties, baby show-
ers and playgroups, and for groups
that would otherwise not have the
opportunity to participate in a
unique event like this - groups
such as preschool and day care
centers, scouting troops, summer
camps, children's hospitals and
boys and girls clubs.
In addition, Noah's Ark offers a
new traveling party concept: the
Bella Bee Workshop. The work-
,shop gives girls between the ages
of 8 and 12 years old the trendy
glitter and shine products they love
in an interactive party atmosphere,
while focusing on building confi-
dence and character.
"Everyone was having a great
time during the workshop, including
me, and I wanted to bring the fun
and excitement to families outside
of my reach," said Dina Amico-
Kriescher, founder and president of
Noah's Ark Animal Workshop. "I
know that there are a countless
number of kids. and families that
will gain a lifetime of warm memo-
ries by making, naming and loving
their own stuffed animal, not to
mention all the women throughout
the U.S. who will benefit from a
career that is fun, easy and
rewarding."

Ark Animal Workshop, call Nicole

Citrus Springs man a
face of TRIMSPA
NASSAU, BAHAMAS/WHIPPA-
NY, N.J. - Dale Bramall of Citrus
Springs earned the distinction of
being named Men's Grand
Champion at TRIMSPA's Million
Dollar Challenge held this week in
Nassau, Bahamas. Bramall, who
was tired of carrying 278 pounds
on his 6-foot frame, found his
weight loss inspiration in another
former "big person," the late Anna
Nicole Smith. Smith's success and
the opportunity to become a face
of TRIMSPA was just the motiva-
tion Bramall needed to become this
year's winning "loser."
Said Bramall of the late Anna
Nicole Smith, "I've known of her
since I was 19, 20 years old; I saw
her show. I tried (TRIMSPA) after
seeing the Anna Nicole Million
Dollar Challenge TV commercial. I
saw what if did for her and I want-
ed that for myself." Apparently, that
was enough to prompt Bramall's
weight loss regimen. "What I need
are goals," he confided, quietly
adding, "Having a new baby, I did-
n't want to leave her."
The 4'1-year-old Postal Service
clerk struggled with weight in the
past and admits he has tried other
programs - but without success.
After shedding 98 pounds during
the Challenge, Bramall found him-
self being stopped from throwing


the mail to talk with his supervisor's
girlfriend about his weight loss regi-
men: TRIMSPA X32, smaller meals
more often, and exercise. Bramall
recalled, "Instead of getting your
mail to you in a timely manner, I
was giving healthy living advice to
my bosses' squeeze." Advice,
according to Bramall, that is now
being followed by both.
Today, Bramall competes in bike
rides and triathlons and credits
TRIMSPA X32 with helping him
transition from a fat parent to a fit
parent. With his new 180-pound
body, the married father of three,
Courtney, 16, Kyle, 10, and Hailey,
2, says he is "thankful for the prod-
uct that helped him take back con-
trol of his life." He is also thankful
for the 2-year endorsement con-
tract earned with his Men's Grand
Champion title.
The 50 TRIMSPA Challenge
finalists, 25 women and 25 men,
lost a combined grand total of
2,551 pounds in the year-long
competition - the culmination of
which officially marked the "passing
of the torch that Anna lit more than
three years ago."

DEAR READER: A reverse
mortgage might very well serve
you and your wife. You both have
reached the age where reverse
mortgages have much to recom-
mend them. Simply, a reverse
mortgage is borrowing against
the equity in your home, and the
debt will be retired upon your
passing. The older the person
taking the loan (i.e., the lower the
life expectancy), the higher the
payout Since this is borrowed
money, there are no taxes on it
whatsoever. The lender will
charge a previously agreed-upon

rate of interest The largest argu-
ment against a reverse mortgage
is that it uses capital that some
people would like to leave to
their heirs. In my opinion, this is
no argument at all. You earned
the money; there is no reason
why you shouldn't enjoy it
DEAR BRUCE: I have
received one of those "you have
been approved" credit-card pro-
posals in the mail. When I filled
out the application and returned
it to the issuer, I was declined
because of one or two credit
items on my report How can
they say you are "preapproved"
and then not give you the credit
that you require? - Reader, via
e-mail
DEAR READER: If you read


the fine print carefully, you will
find some reference to "subject
to credit approval." There is no
force or effect on those pre-
arranged cards. They are in no
way universally prearranged. In
some of their mailings to a "very
qualified" list, it may well be that
the majority, if not all, are grant-
ed cards. If it says "preap-
proved," don't take it for granted
you will automatically receive

DEAR BRUCE: Recently, my
wife and I applied for refinanc-

years and have never once been

company with a letter of expla-

this bad information off our

The only redress you would hare
is to insert a letter into each of
your credit files with Equifax,
TransUnion and Experian,
explaining what happened.
Every entity that requests your
credit information will be pro-
vided with that letter of explana-
tion. It may not help a whole lot,
but it surely can't hurt This is
another example of why you
have to stay on top of your credit

have enormous repercussions&

JsUNDAY, MAERCH 11, 2007/


Bike crash
Two more people died in a
motorcycle accident. I suppose
their exhaust noise wasn't loud
enough to keep them awake.
Panic at pump
How can gas stations raise
the price of gas every day
when their underground tanks
have the same gas they paid
less for the day before? You're
being charged more for the
same gas that you paid for two
days before. They make us pay
in advance because they think
we are all drive-off-without-pay-
ing -iieies. The only thieves I
see here are the oil companies.
McDonald's welcome
We would like to see a fast
food restaurant come to
Beverly Hills, such as
McDonald's. Inverness has
three McDonald's. If we wanted
to have a breakfast or a sand-
wich and a drink during the
day or evening, we here in
Beverly Hills have to drive to
Inverness, spending $3 or $4
for gas, plus inconvenience.
Let's catch up with the times.
Home rules
I moved here from Pinellas
County four years ago. I was
under the assumption that
there was a county law requir-
ing all mobile homes to have
striating, no trash in the yard,
no illegal fires and no loose or
unlicensed dogs. It seems my
neighbors ... they are guilty of
all the above and no one seems
to want to do anything about it.
Part of problem
The person who moved here
years ago and was complaining
about people moving here now,
don't they realize they're part
of the problem? Have a good
day.
Guard's address
This is in reference to today's
Chro�icle, March 7, on the
Couey trial, in reference to the
correction officer who gave
John Couey his address so they
could write to each other back
and forth and discuss religion.
I don't know how things are run
down here in Florida. I. just
recently relocated from New
York. I was a New York City cor-
rections officer for 20 years,
which is a sworn police officer's
job in New York. I don't under-
stand how this gentleman can
give a known felon his address.
Isn't that a conflict of interests
and isn't that cause, where he's
known to be with a known
felon? I don't know how things
are done down here, but people
talk about northerners. You
would never see that upstate.
Lengthy project
This is in response to the
"Sidewalk superintendent,"
who wrote and was worried
about (County road) 486's
problems. Being retired for 20
years ought to make him wise
to the fact that sometimes
things happen on a job that
you cannot control. If he were
to take a little initiative and go
down to the county building
and find out why this project is
taking so long, he would see
that our stack of revisions is
twice as thick as the original
plans that came out. That rock
that we used was DOT
approved. So before he starts
pointing fingers and casting
blame, he needs to get all the
facts.
Real man's game
A person called in about
NASCAR and car racing and
golf. Said he didn't like golf
either, but it was better than
having somebody running
around trying to kill themselves.
SBut you must remember that,
again, racing is a real man's
game. This guy probably goes
and bowls on Sunday after-
noon. Excuse me while I yawn,
but that's quite boring. Another
guy calls in and said about
exercise on the golf course, that
someone needs to follow him
around on 18 holes for exercise.
Need I remind him that all he
does is sit on his duff in the
golf cart and rides around. The
only exercise he gets is when he
bends his arm at the 19th hole.
You all need to get a life.


From war to war
To "Blair for president": I sug-
gest you get all of your facts
straight. Yes, Mr. Blair is pulling
his troops from Iraq, but they're
not going home, they're being
sent to Afghanistan. He's just
sending them from one war to
another. But you have just-
proven that the liberals' motto
should be, "Never let the facts
get in the way of a good story."

Plame game
Scooter Libby faces 25 years
in jail for lying to the FBI in the
case of their investigation of
who outed Valerie Plame.


Judith Miller, New York Times
reporter, spent 85 days in jail
over the investigation of who
outed Valerie Plame. Deputy
Secretary of State Richard
Armitage is actually the person
that outed Valerie Plame and
he's not being charged with
anything or brought to trial.
Now this doesn't make sense.
The person that actually outed
the covert CIA agent gets no
charges and everybody else
goes to jail. Make sense of
that.
Nothing owed
To "Asset to country": Do you
have any clue as to why the ille-_
gals will do these so-called jobs-
that no one else in this country
will do? It's because no one in
this country can live or raise a
family on $5 or less an hour.
Illegals take their money back
to Mexico where the money
goes a long way. Some
Americans need to get it into
their heads that we Americans
owe these people nothing. But
the American government
needs to make sure laws are
followed in order to protect our
people. There is many people
in our country who want to
make better lives for their fami-
lies, too. It's sad to me you
have more compassion for peo-
ple of another country-than- - -
you have for people of your
own country. And what is it
about the word "illegal" you do
not understand?
Feeling followed
I am getting awful tired of
people like Sen. John McCain
telling me that if we don't fight
them over there, they will just
follow us home. Well, did they
follow us home after Vietnam?
Sen. McCain, of all people,
should be most grateful for
people like President Nixon and
others for pulling us out of the
Vietnam terrible war.
Food good for years
To the person who's com-
plaining about out-of-date food
and asking about it: Most of
our canned goods and foods
that are nonperishable are
good for years and years. Years
ago, they only dated the perish-
able things. Now it's just a job-
making industry to date all
canned goods. The can, even if
it's dented, if doesn't have a
bulge where you can squeeze
it, it's fine to eat.

stuff on the way rather than
walk around their own yard and
clean up the mess there. Most
of them just walk them and
they dump on your yard. I have
a neighbor that stands and
looks at me every day while
their dog dumps on my yard.
They clean up the mess in their
yard, but never once step into
my yard and clean up the
dumps there. I have a neighbor
who lives behind me and has
three dogs. They go around my
fence line every morning and
kick the mess all over on my
-property. I asked the lady today
if she could have them do that
somewhere else on their prop-
erty because all I could smell
was the dog, and she said it's
too bad the wind blows that
way. So I guess we all do have
a dog.

Clark missed
I'm belatedly calling in to say
that I saw the obituary for Art
Clark and wanted to let his
family know I'm sorry for their
loss. I enjoyed his letters to the
editor immensely.
Brush with death
I want to say thank you very
much to the old woman in Old
Homosassa in a silver SUV that
did not kill me on my motorcy-
cle Wednesday, March 7. Thank
you very much. The other day
was my birthday. Thank you

much. Learn to drive.

for women in the Chronicle's

There's never women looking

Dog mess left
We all have dogs. This is
about all the people that have
the dogs. They walk them in
the morning and they go on
your lawn or they pick up the


have some fun and stop whining.
Taxing veterans
To the veteran who called in
to Sound Off saying that he
was complaining about them


taking taxes out of his retire-
ment pay. I'm 100 percent in
his favor. No veteran who
served in combat at all,
whether they're disabled or not
disabled, should pay one penny
if he stuck his life on the line
for this country. What is wrong
with this country anymore?
These people in Congress and
these people in the White
House, they are screwing the
veterans all the time. They're
taking more and more away
from us. We really better stick
together or they're going to
screw us altogether. Look
what's-happening in
Washington to the hospitals
that are treating the veterans.
We better get together or we're
going to be ruined altogether.
Deeds ignored
I moved to Sugarmill Woods
last year and I wish I hadn't. I
hate Sugarmill Woods. This
deed restriction they have is a�
joke. Last week, I went to the
A-frame and complained about
people putting their trash out
on Saturday for pickup on
Tuesday. So Saturday, Sunday,
Monday, Tuesday - four days
of trash out being blown all
over the road, being eaten by
birds, raccoons and what have
-you.-And I complained to the A-
frame. From my house to the A-
frame, I passed by five houses
with trash outside before the
garbage day. Went to the A-
frame and complained and
they did nothing. They said,
"Oh, they don't listen to their
deeds." I was waiting for them
to take the names, the address-
es, but they didn't do anything.
Today, I went and complained
about people watering their
lawns in the middle of the day.
I went to the A-frame told the
lady and she did nothing.
People park on vacant lots,
there's trash everywhere,
they're watering all times of
the day and people are not
-keeping their lawn up. I mean
Sugarmill Woods has these
deed restrictions and no one
pays attention to them. All that
A-frame is concerned about is
this stupid new building. So I
hope everyone votes "no" on
the ballet. And speaking of the
ballot, I never got my ballot. I
had to go to the office and ask
for my ballot.
Sound Off fan
I want to thank the Citrus
County Chronicle for putting
more Sound Offs in the news-
paper. I've noticed for the last
few days that your Sound Off
section has been a few pages
-tenger._Thank you. That's the
part of the newspaper I enjoy--
reading.
Reagan years
There seems to be a rash
recently on the exploits of
Ronald Reagan. Let me tell you
of my experiences with Ronny:
My first experiences were not so
positive. At the time, I had three
children in college just in time
for Reagan's massive student
loan cuts. Then the mother of all
massive cuts from our veterans
prescription drug program. Do
you remember when you could
deduct the interest on credit
cards, auto, boat, camper loans
and so forth? All gone under
-.Reagan's. presidency. Now don't
tell me the Democratic Congress
was totally responsible for these
cuts, because Reagan could eas-
ily veto any one of these meas-
ures. Then the e savings
and loan scandal that cost
American taxpayers billions.
Reagan's buddies Neil Bush and
John McCain were up to their
noses in this mess. This is
sometimes viewed as the great-
est robbery of all time. Then old
Ronny sent the Marines to Beirut
for some unknown reason and
over 240 body bags came home.
He then suddenly pulled them
out of that hellhole - some-
thing Bush doesn't know how to
do. By the way, Reagan wasn't
responsible for ending the Cold
War, as you'd like to believe.
That Berlin Wall came down two
years after Reagan left office.
The Polish-born pope and (Lech)
Walesa had more to do with that
subject than anyone. Not to
mention the Soviet Union went
bankrupt due to excessive mili-
tary spending - something that
Bush is doing to this country
right now...


Male interns
We would like to know, if
Hillary Clinton gets to be presi-
dent, will she have male interns?
Also, I understand she wants to
be called Mrs. Bill Clinton now.
Owning the street
I think Sheriff Dawsy should
kind of explain what this new
ordinance is in Eden Gardens,
that we can't have commercial
number plates in Eden
Gardens. We own the streets,
we pay to have them tarred, we


own the property, we own the
land around us and we pay for
our lights through the league.
Yet, they come to church and
tell a man he's got to move his
truck because he's got a com-
mercial plate. On my street,
there's three commercial vans
they bring home from work,
and then two people across the
street with pickups with com-
mercial plates on them from
New York, they're snowbirds.
You can't park in your own yard
or your own lot with a commer-
cial plate? I think it's ridiculous
to go to church and drag a
man out and make him move
his vehicle when he's visiting. I
think they ought to explain
what this commercial plate
business is on this new ordi-
nance.
Take off to Tampa
In response to "Go for the
runway," in March 6's Sound
Off: If you want to go for the
runway, go to Tampa. An exten-
sion is not needed for insur-
ance reasons. And how do you
figure noise and air pollution
from jet aircraft will be
reduced? Also, by the airport
manager's own statement
made at a recent aviation
board meeting, there will be
larger jets coming into Crystal
River Airport. Let's do the
math: Larger runway plus,larg-
er aircraft plus larger engines
equals more air and noise pol-
lution and the risk factor for an
accident increases 50 percent.
Residents of Seven Rivers golf
community and patrons of the
strip malls on U.S. 19, be
aware- you are in harm's
way.
Where were dogs?
On the Jessica Lunsford
case: I've been wondering ever
since it started, where were the
dogs, the sheriff's county dogs?
If they'd have had the dogs
out, they'd have found her the
first day. I'd like to know why
they didn't have the dogs out.
Hefty sentence
I'm calling in about "Put it to
rest"...You think a 10-year sen-
tence for a six-pack should be
dropped? What about that kid
that ... beat that man to death,
the homeless man, and all he
got was 17 years' probation ...
Four-wheel ride
I would like to respond to
"ATV drug dealers." Are you
kidding me? Are you really sug-
gesting that anybody who rides
a four-wheeler is a drug dealer
and they only ride Thursday
through Monday and only from
2:30 to 4:30 in the morning?
And in the next breath, you say
"from morning 'til night," so
.make up your mind. You proba-
bly also live in a rural area and
have moved here from some-
place else and now want things
to change because you have
blessed us with your presence.
Are there a few bad apples in a
bushel? Of course there are.
,But to generalize everybody
just shows how uneducated you
are. I'm a 36-year-old female
with a respectable job helping
to raise the children in this
county, and I enjoy riding my
' four-wheeler on dirt roads if for
no other reason but to go a mile
down the road to check my mail
or to a friend's house. And I
resent this county, who does not
maintain our roads or even bring
mail to our houses - the same
county that makes our children
walk a mile-long road to catch
the bus - now wanting to tell
us, the ones who never com-
plained about anything, that we
can't ride our four-wheelers on a
private road that we maintain.
Look at the direction of this
county and tell me that they have
nothing better to do. If you don't
like the four-wheelers, then move
into the city where there aren't
any. But don't try and take away
rights away from people because
you don't like something.
Sucking sound
I believe the most honest
words spoken by a politician in
years were spoken by Ross Perot
when he said there will be a giant
sucking sound of jobs leaving the
United States with the passing of
NAFTA. More and more jobs are
leaving this country to China,
Japan and Mexico. The United
States of Japan, China and


Mexico. Jobs, jobs, jobs - that's
the bottom line.
Check your pet
This is in response to Tuesday,
March 6's "Rescued dog sick." I
guess it's a "buyer beware" situa-
tion when you're dealing with ani-
mal agencies ... They're immune
from letting you adopt a sick dog.
Take them to the vet immediately
If they do not pass, return the
dog.
Right to ticket
With all the violations on the
roads in Beverly Hills, you would
think that surveillance should
have the authority to give out


tickets to the violators, especial-
ly the speeders and the noisy
pickup trucks. This is something
that Sheriff Dawsy should think
about real hard.
Cheney's old words
In April 1991, in an interview
with David Brinkley, our secretary
of defense said: "Once we get to
Baghdad, what would we do?
Who would we put in power?
What kind of government would
we have? Would it be a Sunni
government, a Shiite govern-
ment, a Kurdish government? I,
do not think the United Sates '
wants to have U.S. military forces
accept the casualties and accept
the responsibility of trying to
govern Iraq. I think it makes no
sense at all." And the name of--- -
that secretary of defense was -
you guessed it - Dick Cheney.
Hard to believe, isn't it?
Forgetting sticker
It's Tuesday, March 6.
Somebody called in about driv-
ing with stickers, especially the
lady who drives around with her
handicapped sticker in the win-
dow. If that's all he's got to
worry about or she's got to
worry about, they need to give it
up. I'm probably the guilty party.
I'm probably that lady, but we
got cancer. When you're worried
about dying, the last thing on
your mind sometimes is taking
that sticker out of the window.
Eighty-five percent of the time, I----
take that sticker out of the win-
dow. So sometimes when I get in
the car and I'm having a rough
day and I'm puking all day long
or not feeling good, yes, I forget
to take that sticker out of the
window. My car is almost five
years old and it's only got
30,000 miles on it. So maybe
you should know the circum,
stances before you start com-
plaining. There's a lot of other
things in the world to complain
about, you know - like the peo-
ple that are dying in Iraq and the
guys that are coming back all
maimed with only a leg and
some of them with no legs and
brain injuries. If that's all you've
got to worry about is a handi- -
capped sticker, you need to
mind your own business.
Major blunder
One thing President Reagan
and Clinton knew was to give
other countries aid and weapons
to fight our enemies. Iran's
greatest fear was the Iraqi army
and Saddam Hussein. They cele-
brated in the streets when we
took them down.Il don't approve
of everything that Israel does in
.the Middle East, but they would
come to our aid in a major con-
flict with Iran sooner than our
so-called North American and
Europe friends. The war in Iraq
is going to go down in history as_,_,..._
a major blunder on our part.
Former Secretary of State Colin-
Powell and CIA intelligence has
all said that Iraq was not behind
the 9/11 terrorist disaster.
Maybe that late-night talk show
host thought the intelligence of
the then-governor of Texas
before the 2000 election was
more factual than humorous.
Sound program
"Building bids." The new
Cypress Village building cost
estimate is based upon num-
bers from reliable sources. The
Cypress Board is not attempting
to put one over on its property'
owners. The building program is
sound and openly in the com- ...
munity interests. Also, the cart
is not in front of the horse -
there is no horse. A "yes" vote
buys us the horse, whereupon
we will advance the working
drawings and invite competitive
bids with one thought in mind:
beat the estimated cost. A "yes"
vote shows your support for your
community. Tony Schmidt is the
chairman of the Cypress Village
Building Committee.
Double exemption
This is very important. We
voted in the last election to dou-
ble the homestead exemption
and it passed. Are our county
commissioners going to let us
have it this year? This is the
second time since I've been in
the state that we voted on it,
but I never did see if we're
going to get it or not.

Bronze plate shows Tiffany's skill


D ear John: I have been reading
your column for many years
and find the things that people
write to you about most interesting. My
91-year-old mother has several items
she wants to know about, but there is
one item in particular that we would
like more information on.
I have attached some photos of a 9-
inch plate that feels a bit heavy for brass
and does not tarnish very much. It has John Si
almost a golden quality. There is a -92 .
design around the edge and little circles . ..
of mother of pearl are inlaid. On the
back on the edge, in very tiny letters, it
says "Tiffany." Below that it says "New York" and
below that are either the numbers 2738 or 1798.
I laiov\ that nLumbered Tiffany pieces can be
fairl Valitable andkte, of course, are wonde'Thg itf
this might be one of them. My mother got the plate
from her mother so it has been in our family for at
least 60 years. Thank you for any assistance you
may be able to provide. - S.M., Hernando
Dear S.M.: Charles L. Tiffany, 1812-1902, was the
founder of Tiffany & Company in New York City.
From the beginning, Tiffany's jewelry, gold, and
silver products were of the finest quality, this rep-
utation continues into current times. His son
Louis Comfort Tiffany, 1848-1933, founded Tiffany
Studios and became recognized internationally
for his lamps, stained glass and art glass that are
aggressively collected in today's marketplace.
The Tiffany & Company bowl you have was like-
ly produced during the 1920s. The numbers on the


bowl are relative to pattern or style.
From the photographs you included, it
looks like the pattern might be the
Modeled pattern. The material is
1- bronze and was likely originally gilded.
Potential dollar value is in the $150 to
> M $300 range.
Dear John: Can you tell us anything
about the items in the two pictures
attached? One looks like a creamer
korski with the inscription International Pew-
2 � _-. ter an eagle bird outline, Pewter 276 17.
.*.: The second is a small cup we were
told is a baby's cup from a hospital birth
in 1926, with the inscription Trademark
18 83 EB. Rogers Silver CO, Taunton, Mass. 107.
Any information you can give is appreciated.
Love your column by the way new to us since we
'rno.d -ref nd not,ook Tonrward to it eviy
week in the Citrus County Chronicle. It is inform-
ative, entertaining, and often humorous! - D.G.,
Crystal River
Dear D.G.: Thank you for the kind words. The
two items you have are of no specific collector
interest. The baby cup is silverplated and might
sell for $5 perhaps more on a good day. The cream-
er's value is catch-as-catch-can. You might try lis-
tening to Sikorski's Attic broadcast live every from

Latte, cappuccino or steamer: How to fake a great coffee drink


our feedback for a
recent column was as
enthusiastic as it was
voluminous. I'm happy to know
I'm not alone in my coffee
snobbery.
Many. of you
brought up interest- -
ing points - and 5
questions, too. Like
what to do with - .
brewed coffee that t
is no longer fresh
but too good to , .
throw down the
drain. Many of you
want to know how to Mary
make your own cap- EVER
puccinos, lattes and
even "steamers,"
made popular by Starbucks
and, surprisingly, containing
no coffee at all.
Short of purchasing an
expensive machine that uses
high-pressure steam to make
espresso and has a gizmo that
steams the milk, there are ways
we can improvise to create rea-
sonable facsimiles of our
favorite coffee drinks.
Both cappuccinos and lattes
are typically made with espres-
so. You can fake that by making
very strong brewed coffee. And


you can make "steamed" milk
complete with froth with your
microwave oven (or stovetop)
and a blender. Simply heat the
milk to about 205 F (just short
of boiling), pour into
a blender carefully
and blend on high
until foam forms.
LATTE: Your very
strong coffee mixed
, f about 50/50 with hot
milk and then
Stopped with foam
makes for a tasty
latte. Experiment as
Hunt necessary to find
YDAY your ideal propor-
tion of coffee to
milk
CAPPUCCINO: Making an
authentic cappuccino is a
somewhat complicated
process. But you can cut
through all of that simply by
making a mix that you store in
the pantry and adding just 3
teaspoons of it to a very strong
cup of coffee. You'll be amazed
at just how good this is.
Cappuccino Mix
E 11/2 cups coffee creamer
* 2 cups instant-chocolate-
drink mix
* 1 cup sugar


* 1 teaspoon ground cinna-
mon
* 1/2 teaspoon ground nut-
meg
Mix well; store in airtight
container. To use, stir about 3
teaspoons of mix into a cup of
hot, freshly brewed, strong cof-
fee. Top with whipped cream,
if desired.
STEAMER: A "steamer" is
simply steamed milk plus fla-
vored syrup. Heat milk in the
microwave or on the stovetop,
making sure it does not come to
a boil. Pour into a mug, and stir
in 2 to 3 tablespoons of flavored
syrup, to taste.
Tip: You can find Torani Ital-
ian syrups at a considerable
discount at Cost Plus World
Markets, now in 35 states.
Check www.worldmarket.com
for a store near you.
LEFTOVER COFFEE: It's
not easy to toss excellent coffee
down the drain simply because
it is no longer fresh - especial-
ly when it's made from beans
you've roasted yourself. Don't.
Pour it into ice-cube trays.
Once frozen, pop the cubes into
a zipper-type bag to be stored
in the freezer. Coffee cubes are
ideal in place of ice for iced


coffee and other summertime
blended coffee drinks. Coffee
cubes come in very handy
when a recipe calls for just a
small amount of brewed coffee,
too.
MEN
A few months ago, when we
were rushing to put the finish-
ing touches on our holiday cel-
ebrations, Congress was doing
a bit of its own scrambling to
get the Tax Relief and Health
Care Act of 2006 into law before
the year's end. They made it,
but not in time to get all 200-
plus tax changes into the IRS
forms. It's unlikely that even
tax-software providers were
able to incorporate all the
changes into their programs.
So do-it-yourself filers, beware:
It is quite likely you will need
to write in some of your deduc-
tions. Here are a few of the
changes most likely to affect
you.
* CLASSROOM SUPPLIES:
If you are a teacher, you can
deduct up to $250 of your out-
of-pocket expenses for class-
room supplies. To claim this,
write it on line 23 and cross out
"Archer MSA deduction."
* ALTERNATE MOTOR-


VEHICLE CREDIT: If you
bought a hybrid car in 2006 that
qualifies for tax credits, you
don't have to figure it out
because now it's a flat amount.
Just ask your car dealer or visit
the IRS Web site at
www.irs.gov.
m TELEPHONE EXCISE-
TAX REFUNDS: Anyone, indi-
viduals. and businesses, who
paid federal excise tax on their
long-distance phone bill up to
the middle of 2006 can claim a
refund. A single filer gets a $30
refund and a family gets $60.
Claim this on line 71 of the
1040. Or, if you have all of your
old phone bills for the specific
41 months, you can claim the
exact tax paid on Form 8913.
* SOLAR AND FUEL-CELL
CREDIT: If you installed ener-
gy-saving heating and air con-
ditioning, windows, insulation
or solar panels in 2006, you
may be entitled to a tax credit
of $50 to $2,000. Claim this on
line 52 of the 1040.
* CHARITY TRAPS: Rules
on deductions for clothing and
other used household items
have changed for 2006. It used
