Hundreds of Shiite pilgrims were

same risks.
The pilgrims riding back in the
truck - about 70 men and boys -
passed through the most dangerous

County to discuss land acquisition program


Nonprofit group to

speak at Tuesda's

commission meeting

TERRY WITT

Chronicle
Citrus County has never had a land
acquisition program, but citizens hale
urged the county to move in that direc-
tion and the county commission is
interested.
On Tuesday, staff for the Florida
Trust for Public Lands will speak to


CITRUS COUNTY
COMMISSION
* The Citrus County Commission
meeting begins at 1 p.m. Tuesday
on the first floor of the Citrus
County Courthouse. The presenta-
tion by the Florida Trust for Public
Lands begins at 1:45 p.m.

county commissioners about opportuni-
ties that exist to apply for state recre-
ational and conservation land funding.
County staff has recommended using
the expertise of TPL, a private non-
profit land conservation organization,
to request funding through a state grant
program known as the Florida
Communities Trust (FCT).


During the past 15 years, FCT has
awarded more than $500 million in
grants for local conservation projects.
FCT receives about $66 million annu-
ally to fund park and recreation pur-
chases, according to materials provided
in the county commission agenda.
Florida Forever is the statewide con-
servation lands acquisition program.
The program is the successor to
Preservation 2000. Florida Forever was
approved as an amendment to the state
constitution in 1998. Amendment 5
passed by a 73 percent margin.
The program has $300 million to dis-
tribute annually through the following
programs and agencies:
* $105 million to the Florida
Department of Environmental


Protection for natural areas land con-
servation, as approved by the governor
and cabinet
* $105 million to the five water man-
agement districts.
* $66 million for the Florida
Communities Trust
* $6 million to DEP for the Florida
Recreation Development Assistance
Programs (FRDAP), which makes
grants to communities for the develop-
ment of local park and recreation facil-
ities.
* $4.5 million for DEP inholdings and
additions to state parks, $4.5 million to
the state Division of Forestry, $4.5 mil-
lion to the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission and $4.5 mil-
lion to DEP for greenways and trails.


Pat Waybright: Friends, family say 'she did it her way'


NANCY 41 % E.; .:.:4 Y

Chronicle
In a competitive, sometimes cut-
throat business, Pat Waybright
showed rare compassion, especially
with those just starting out.
"My husband and I called her my
'real estate mom,"' said Hope Corona.
"It's hard to be new in this business,
but Pat was generous with her knowl-
edge of real estate and willing to
share techniques that made her so
successful.


, L - I ij 7


"She did everything in her power to
make my job easy. Other people would
see me as a competing broker, but she
didn't," she said. "Any question I had,
I knew I could call Pat"
Pat Waybright, owner of Pat
Waybright Real Estate of Crystal
River, died Feb. 17. She was 70.
Her daughters, Stephanie Price
and Melanie Bartley, are now follow-


ing in their mom's footsteps, continu-
ing the business she started in 1984.
"My mom was a multi-faceted indi-
vidual and a pioneer as a woman in
real estate in Citrus County," said
Price. "She prided herself in staying
independent She was going to do it
her way, and she was very successful.
She had a personality that attracted
people and she made people feel
comfortable. That was a huge part of
her success."
Pat grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and
later in St Petersburg. She attended
St. Petersburg High School and met


her husband, Melvin, at a baseball
game. They married in 1953 and were
married for 54 years.
They dreamed of owning land. Pat
loved horses and animals. They want-
ed to own a ranch and raise a close-
knit family When their daughters
were young, they started driving all
over, searching for the perfect home-
stead - Brooksville, Chiefland,
Floral City. They fell in love with their
25 acres on County Road 480 in
Homosassa and cleared the land
themselves.
Experienced ranchers would drive


by and watch the family work and
comment, "That's not how you do
that," or "You're planting that at the
wrong time," but somehow it always
worked out, Price said.
Before long, those same ranchers
would be asking for their secrets, like
how they got the pasture so green.
"My dad built the house himself and
we did the horse shows together and
my parents were involved in the
Cattlemen's Association and they
started a horse show club," Price said.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
Country music queen Loretta
Lynn, the coal miner's daugh-
ter, is getting an honorary doc-
torate from Boston's Berklee
College of Music.
Berklee President Roger H.
Brown will make the presenta-
tion on the stage of the Grand
Ole Opry on Saturday for
Lynn's contributions to con-
temporary
music and

life situations
faced by many
women.
Lynn, 72,
was one of the
best-known
female vocal- Loretta
ists of the Lynn
1960s and
1970s, tackling women's issues
before feminism came in
vogue. Her 1969 hit the "Coal

Jackie Chan recruits
for LA Sheriff
MONTEREY PARK, Calif.
- Martial arts expert and
actor Jackie Chan has taken
on a new role promoting the
Los Angeles County Sheriff's
Department to Asian-
Americans in a public service
ad.
The Chinese star and stunt
man will step out of a squad
car dressed in a sheriff's
deputy uniform in the ad and
will urge potential recruits to
join the force.
The department hopes the
commercial, which will be
shown during recruitment
fairs, will help boost the low
number of Asian-Americans in
their ranks.
"I'm the police ambassador
in Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong,

LOS ANGELES - The ancient battle of
Thermopylae was the stuff of 2007's first
certified blockbuster as the bloody action
tale "300" debuted with ticket sales of $70
million during its opening weekend,
according to studio estimates Sunday
That's about $233,000 for every one of
the legendary 300 Spartan soldiers who
fought off a much larger Persian force in
the epic battle.
"On a Spartan-by-Spartan basis, that's a
lot of money," said Paul Dergarabedian,
president of box-office tracker Media By
Numbers. "Summer came a little early,
because this is a summer-style opening."
The number of movie-goers for the
Warner Bros. epic "300" outnumbered
crowds for the rest of the top-10 movies
combined. If the estimate holds when final
numbers are released Monday, "300"
would break the record for best March
debut ever, topping the $68 million haul
for "Ice Age: The Meltdown" last year.
"300" played in 3,103 theaters, about 850

Today in


Today is Monday, March 12, the
71st day of 2007. There are 294
days left in the year.
Today's Highlight in History:
On March 12, 1933, President
Roosevelt delivered the first of his
radio "fireside chats," telling
Americans what was being done
to deal with the nation's economic
crisis.
On this date:
In 1664, England's King Charles
II granted land in the New World
known as New Netherland to his
brother James, the Duke of York.
In 1864, Ulysses S. Grant
became commander in chief of the
Unionr armies in the Civil War.
In 1912, Juliette Gordon Low
founded the Girl Guides, which
later became the Girl Scouts of
America.
In 1947, President Truman
established what became known
as the "Truman Doctrine" to help
Greece and Turkey resist
Communism.
In 1980, a Chicago jury found
John Wayne Gacy Jr. guilty of the
murders of 33 men and boys. (The
next day, Gacy was sentenced to
death; after years on death row, he
was executed in May 1994.)
Ten years ago: Authorities in ,
Los Angeles arrested Mikhail
Markhasev as a suspect in the
shooting death of Bill Cosby's son,
Ennis. (Markhasev, who later
admitted his guilt, is serving a life
sentence without possibility of "
parole.) U
Five years ago: Houston '
homemaker Andrea Yates was
convicted of murder in the drow'n-
ing deaths of her five children in'
the family bathtub. (Yates was ;b
later retried and found not guiltyby
reason of insanity.)
One year ago: Bombers blew',
apart two markets in a Baghdad
Shiite slum, killing nearly 60 peo-
ple and wounding more than 200.
Today's Birthdays: Former',
astronaut Wally Schirra is 84. -'

Bike Week fatality


Deaths down from

record-high in '06

Associated Press
DAYTONA BEACH - A
motorcycle passenger who was
struck by an oncoming truckwas
the seventh Bike Week-related
fatality in central Florida,
authorities said.
Michelle Owens, 32, of Palm
Coast, was riding on the back of
a motorcycle Saturday driven by
Anthony Carissimo, 34, of
Freehold, N.J., when the truck
struck the bike, ejecting both
riders, the Florida Highway
Patrol said.
They were transported to


Halifax Medical Center, where
Owens later died. Carissimo was
taken in serious condition.
Neither wore helmets, authori-
ties said.
The truck driver, Richard
Datz, 25, of Jensen Beach, was
charged with failure to keep to
the right and passing in the
opposite direction.
Six others also died during the
festivities, but Florida Highway
Patrol Trooper Kim Miller said
while the number of deaths may
seem high, it is a significant
reduction from last year's
record 21 deaths. She credited a
safety campaign that advised
motorists to look out for riders.
"I think everybody is pretty
pleased," Miller said. "It was a
very successful campaign."

WAYBRIGHT
Continued from Page 1A

She raised orchids and
miniature horses and dogs.
She frequented estate and
yard sales, looking for antiques
- and clients. One of her
"secrets," which she shared
freely, was to make use of every
opportunity and never be
afraid to let people know who
you were and what you did.
"Hi. I'm Pat Waybright," she
would say "Can I help you with
any real estate needs?"
"She got lots of listings that
way," Price said. "She figured
people (at yard or estate sales)
might be getting ready to move,
either sell their house or buy a
new one."
Her career in real estate
began after a short time work-
ing for Punta Gorda, the mother
company of Sug-
armill Woods. She
was a head secretary,
making $75 a week.
She knew she need- didn't
ed to do something
different, and was a clu
hired by Black and
Cannon Realty as to sel
their first associate.
"She didn't have a she le
clue how to sell, but
she learned fast," fast.
Price said.
Then one day she -
called her husband
and asked him to describing
help her move her her's gift
desk the next day - with
she was starting her
own company. That's the way
Pat Waybright did things. No
fear. She just did it.
It wasn't uncommon for her
to call home and tell her hus-
band, "Oh by the way I bought
another house today."
She bought huge tracts of land
and sold the lots. To celebrate a
closing, she would buy a case of
lobster tails, a couple of orchids
- or another piece of land.
"She was her own person,
fiercely independent," Price
said. 'And the most unusual
things happened to her."
One time she came home
from work and a helicopter
landed in her pasture. A movie
producer got out and asked if
he could use her ranch in his
movie and could the star ride a
horse in the pasture.
Another time a monkey
showed up at the house. Stuff
like that happened all the time.
"My mom's life was a huge
adventure," Price said.


CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE.


She called herself and her
daughters "super chicks" and
her four granddaughters
"super chicks in the making."
She told Corona that her
daughters were wonderful and
that she was proud of them,
that their combined skills
made the prefect broker.
"It takes Melanie and I
together to do my mom's job,"
Price said.
"There are always agents
that you look up to because of
their integrity, their ethics and
their skills in this profession,"
said Steve Varnadoe of
RE/MAX Realty One. "One of
these agents was Pat Waybright
. It was a pleasure to have
known her and our (Realtors)
Association is much better
because of her influence."
Bonnie Rosenberger, execu-
tive officer of the Realtors
Association of Citrus County,
called Pat a "lovely lady who will
be missed by every-
one in the real estate
She industry." Retired ex-
ecutive officer Erna
have Stanton recalled Pat
as an unbiased and
how informed member of
the association's pro-
I, but fessional standards
committee.
earned She added, "I
could count on Pat to
be there if needed
and to be a profes-
sional, compassion-
ate Realtor and
her moth- friend."

Melanie Bartley


"She taught me everything
from animal veterinary care to
gardening to business and
homemaking. She never wor-
ried about not knowing how to
do something; she just did it
"Her legacy was her strength
and she passed that down to us.
There are a lot of strong
women in our family and it was
because of her strong founda-
tion," Bartley said.
"She was an honor to her pro-
fession and an excellent
teacher," said longtime associ-
ate Valerie Reynolds. "It's a
privilege to have known her and
to have called her my friend."
She was the consummate
Realtor, said her friend Rose
Strawn. "Pat has left a real
legacy with her third-genera-
tional real estate office (and)
her daughters, Melanie and
Stephanie, and granddaughter
Kimberly left to continue her
good works. She will be missed,
' but she will be remembered."

Sultan, a 38-year-old Trans-
portation Ministry worker, said
he watched people thrash
helplessly in the inferno.
Police and hospital officials
said at least 32 people died and
24 were injured.
"I blame the government,"
said Moussawi. "They didn't
provide a safe route for us even
though they knew we were tar-
gets for attack."
In the past two years, the
Shiite militia Mahdi Army pro-
vided security for the pilgrim-
age - marking the end of 40
days mourning for the 7th cen-
tury battlefield death of the
Prophet Muhammad's grand-
son. Shiites consider him the
rightful heir of Islam's leader-
ship, which helps cement the
rift with Sunni Muslims.
This year, however, the
Mahdi militiamen has been
sent to the wings under a deal
between its leader, radical
cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, and the
government to ease the way for
the Baghdad security sweeps.
The pact has apparently led
to a decrease in execution-style
slaying blamed on Shiite
death squads. It also made the
pilgrims easier prey.
Shortly before the truck was
attacked, a bomb-rigged car in
central Baghdad killed at least
five pilgrims and injured six.
In another part of the city, a
suicide bomber detonated a
belt packed with metal frag-
ments inside a minibus head-
ing to a mostly Shiite area,
killing at least 10 people and
wounding five.
Brig. Gen. Dana Pittard, who
commands U.S. units training
Iraqi forces, said nearly 80 per-
cent of Iraqi military divisions
are under full local control, but
getting the forces fully outfitted
with "logistical support" - such
as communications and state-
of-the art equipment - "is
going to take much more time."
He also encouraged Iraqi
government efforts to bring

security personnel from
Saddam Hussein's regime -
who were part of wholesale
dismissals to clear away mem-

"It's what a person's talents

who noted complaints that the
past Baath purges "went way,
way too far."

The one-day meeting was
highlighted by rare direct
exchanges between Iran and the
United States - which report-
edly grew testy in the closed-
door session with other envoys.

for a withdrawal of U.S.-led
forces from Iraq, and the U.S.
delegation reasserted claims
that Shiite militia receive
weapons and aid from Iranian
sources.
But the gathering also ended
with both sides leaving open the
possibility of further contacts to
discuss Iraq - where they
share interests as Baghdad's
top allies. Iraq's foreign minis-
ter, Hoshyar Zebari, called the
conference "an icebreaking
attempt to provide an atmos-
phere for some discussions."
Zebari also repeated the
fears that Iraq could be the
breeding ground for a wider
Mideast meltdown.


"No country will be immune
from Iraq's failure and the con-
sequences that they will suf-
fer," he told CNN.
A senior member of Iraq's
biggest Shiite political bloc -
which maintains very close ties
to Iran - applauded the inter-
action between Iran and the
United States.
"We hope that this confer-
ence would represent a good
start to establish a kind of
understanding between Ameri-
can and Iran regarding the
accusations and counteraccu-
sations about Iraq," said
Humman Hamoudi, who heads
the group's external affairs
committee.

Political deadlocks constrain Iraqi government


Associated Press
Army Pfc. Anthony Yount, 19, from Fairview, La., of Bravo
.Company, 1st Battalion, 23rd Infantry Regiment, stands guard
Sunday during a joint patrol with Iraqi policemen and the Iraqi army
in a Shiite enclave of Baghdad, Iraq.


RUNOFF
Continued from Page 1A

runoff elections.
Reed wrote that the only rea-
son the charter committee
majority wants the change is


that both Mayor Ron Kitchen
and Councilman Phil Price
were elected in 2006 with less
than 50 percent of the vote.
Both Kitchen, who was re-
elected, and Price would have
had a runoff under the plan
proposed by the charter review
committee.


Brown said in her report that
the cost of a runoff is minimal
since both the primary and
general election exist anyway.
Any substantial changes to
the charter require voter
approval.
Today's council meeting
begins at 7 p.m. at city hall.


Associated Press
BAGHDAD - Iraq's frag-
mented 'leadership is strug-
gling to meet the major bench-
marks that it has pledged to
the United States to achieve
soon, with political wrangling
and a chaotic legislature
standing in the way.
The issue took on new
urgency last week when House
Democrats drafted legislation
that would require President
Bush to certify by July 1 and
again by Oct. 1 whether the Iraqi
government is making progress
on security, an oil plan and con-
stitutional amendments.
Even if the Democratic pro-
posals never make it through
Congress, pressure is mounting
for the Iraqis to meet a
timetable or risk losing U.S.
troops and support.
But the Iraqis face a host of
stumbling blocks that go to the
heart of the crisis.
And recent talk of changes in
Prime Minister Nouri al-
Maliki's government may just
increase the paralysis as
groups maneuver for power.
Iraq missed the Dec. 31 tar-
get dates to enact laws estab-
lishing provincial elections,
regulating distribution of the
country's oil wealth and
reversing measures that have
excluded many Sunnis from
jobs and government positions
because they belonged to
Saddam Hussein's Baath party.
The U.S. is also pushing for
constitutional amendments to


remove articles which the
Sunnis believe discriminate in
favor of the Shiites and Kurds.
U.S officials also want Iraqis
to pass a bill to set new elec-
tions for provincial govern-
ments to encourage greater
public participation at the
grass roots level.
So far, the only success has
been a new oil law, which al-
Maliki's Cabinet endorsed on
Feb. 26 and sent to parliament
for approval. Leaders of all
main political blocs have
pledged to support the bill,
which lays down rules for
negotiating contracts and dis-
tributing the revenues among
Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds.
But parliament has not taken
up the measure yet, and the
deputy speaker told The
Associated Press that the draft
may have to be sent back to the
Cabinet because al-Maliki's
staff skipped some legal steps
in endorsing it the first time.

Likewise, the bill on provin-
cial elections is bogged down
in procedural matters. The
measure is designed to redress
problems caused when the
Sunnis boycotted the January
2005 election, which provincial
councils were chosen.
That resulted in Shiites win-
ning power in some areas with
Sunni majorities. Shiite law-
makers are not anxious to give
up those gains.
Legislation to relax the ban*
on former Baath party mem-
bers holding government jobs
or elective office faces an even
tougher road. Shiites and
Kurds, who suffered the most
under Saddam's Sunni-domi-
nated regime, are reluctant to
reinstate thousands of mem-
bers of the party responsible.
The government provides
most jobs here, and the ban
effectively deprives thousands
of former Baath members of a
livelihood.

The main Sunni bloc in par-
liament wants the rules loos-
ened so that thousands of
lower-ranking party members
can get their jobs back.
Ali al-Lami, executive-secre-
tary of the government commit-
tee that screens former party
members, told the AP that the
factions reached a broad com-
promise during a meeting Feb.
28, whereby the number of
Baath members under the ban
would be cut by more than half.
Other former party members
would be-offered reinstatement
or retirement with pensions, he
said. Al-Lami said al-Maliki
had endorsed the compromise.
But that's no guarantee of
swift passage. Many Shiite and
Kurdish lawmakers hold strong
personal views on the issue,
and most of the 275 parliament
members have not seen details
of the compromise since the
legislature adjourned for a
month in early February

Homeowners, lawmakers will

gain from GOP tax reform


Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - The
Republican House leadership
says its proposal to eliminate
taxes on homesteaded properties
while increasing the sales tax
from 6 percent to 8.5 percent is a
bold attempt to address
inequities dogging the current
system.
Critics say the proposal would
hurt the poor, renters and others,
but an Associated Press check of
property records shows one of
the groups that would do well:
the Republican House leader-
ship. Most would save thousands
unless they are exorbitant
spenders.
House Speaker Marco Rubio
wouldn't have to pay the roughly
$13,100 he paid in property taxes
on his half-million-dollar West
Miami home last year, for exam-
ple. To make up for that hit to
local government coffers, Rubio
would have to spend about
$525,000 a year on taxable goods
under the higher sales tax, which
would continue the exemption
for food and medicine. His gov-
ernment salary is about $30,000
and he has a $300,000 a year job
with the law firm Broad and
Cassel.
When asked about his savings,
Rubio said he is in tune with the
problem because he is a home-
owner himself: "That's the point
of having a representative
democracy You want elected
representatives that live in the
same world as the people they
represent"
Many agree that Florida's tax
system needs retooling and it is
probably the biggest issue con-
fronting the Legislature during
its current session.
Currently, taxes on homestead-
ed properties can only go up 3
percent a year, no matter how
fast their value rises. The proper-
ties are then reassessed when
they are sold. That means a long-'
time resident's property taxes
may be a fraction of their newly
arrived neighbor's. It makes it
impossible for some to afford
homes, while keeping some older
residents from downsizing
because they can't afford the tax
hike that would come with their
move.
Taxes on rental, business and
vacation properties rise with
their value, another source of
friction.
There have been several pro-
posals aimed at fixing the system,
including Gov. Charlie Crist's
plan to double the homestead
exemption to $50,000 and make

the 3 percent cap portable so
homeowners no longer feel
trapped in their homes. The
Senate is putting together its pro-
posal, which will include having
property assessors assess prop-
erty based on its current use,
instead of on its highest and best
use as they do currently.
But the House leadership's
proposal is the most radical and
has drawn the most criticism.
Renters across the state are
balking at what they see is an
unfair distribution of tax respon-
sibilities - a boon for middle-
and upper-class homeowners,
and an elbow to the face of lower-
class renters.
"I'm not getting a break, and
that money that they use for the
property taxes goes into our com-
munities," said Tamecka Pierce,
a mother of three and state board
chair for ACORN, a community
organization that advocates for
lower-class families. She's a
renter, paying $1,005 a month in
Orlando. "No playgrounds, no
library funding. There's no bene-
fits for low- to moderate-income
people."
Rubio said the proposal would
enable many renters to become
homeowners.
"The current system punishes
renters more than it does own-
ers," he said. "How many renters
can't be buyers because they
can't afford $13,000 a year in
property taxes?"
House lawmakers, according
to property records, pay a range
of property taxes. While Rep.
Carl Domino, R-Jupiter, pays
about $37,200 in taxes on his
Palm Beach County home, which
has a taxable value of roughly
$1.9 million. Rep. Dick Kravitz, a
Jacksonville Republican, pays
about $1,800 in taxes on a home
with a taxable value of about
$99,076 and a market value of
$192,500.
One of Rubio's Republican col-
leagues in the House, Rep.
Anitere Flores of Miami, is a sup-
porter of the idea. She's also a
unique member of the House
because she rents her primary
residence.
"One of the primary reasons
we chose to rent was because of
the property tax situation,"
Flores said. 'The major immedi-
ate benefit that I will have is that

my husband and I will immedi-
ately be in the market to buy a
home. I'm looking forward to the
bill passing so that maybe I can
buy a home before the end of the
year."
But Pierce said there are plen-
ty of people a financial step
below Flores who would be hurt
Pierce's rent payment is equal to
what many homeowners pay on
their mortgage. What keeps peo-
ple like her from becoming
homeowners can be barriers
such as credit, which won't be
changed by eliminating home-
stead property taxes, she said.
Bill Newton, a Tampa renter
and the executive director of the
Florida Consumer Action
Network, said he doesn't believe
the trickle-down arguments,
made by some, that a tax break
for his landlord would translate
into savings for himself.
"It's shifting the tax burden
from Marco Rubio to renters and
low-income people like myself,"
said Newton. "I think he can bet-
ter afford to pay the tax than
renters."
Along with many renters, the
House plan is also inciting the
wrath of local government offi-
cials, whom House Republicans
have criticized for overseeing
out-of-control spending.
But Rep. Dan Gelber, the
House Democratic leader, said
state lawmakers are the ones
overseeing the bulk of spending,
even while they scapegoat local
governments. Much of the cost of
education, he said, has been
passed down from Tallahassee to
local governments.
"It has serious implications
that they are ignoring at
Florida's peril," said Gelber, who
wouldn't have to pay roughly
$7,700 in property taxes if the
plan passes. His Miami Beach
house has a taxable value of
$316,864, but is worth $950,800,
which means a new buyer would
have to pay triple the amount in
taxes. "It's ironic that my col-
leagues are railing on local gov-
ernment when they are the ones
who have increased local taxes
as much as anyone."
If the House plan is passed by
the Legislature - which will be a
challenge because of opposition
from Democrats and skepticism
from the Florida Senate - it
must still be approved by 60 per-
cent of voters.

Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - Regard-
less of the party in power,
Florida lawmakers try to make
it harder for to figure out what's
happening in state government.
And 2007 is no different, says
a nonprofit group formed in
1984 by Florida newspaper
editors and broadcasters to
advocate open government.
"We are tracking close to 100
bills already, over 20 of those
bills are new exemptions -
exceptions to our constitutional
right of access," said Adria
Harper, director of the Talla-
hassee-based First Amendment
Foundation. "We had higher
hopes for open government in
the legislative process this year.
But it seems like we are once
again in the same position,
open government is under
assault"
One troublesome measure,
Harper said, is a proposal that
would close the process for
selecting top executives at pub-
lic hospitals. Rep. Larry
Cretul, R-Ocala, is sponsoring
the measure in the House (H.B.
467) and Sen. Steve Oelrich, R-
Cross Creek, is pushing it in the

Senate (S.B. 2624).
"If this one passed, it could
open the door to closing the
selection process of any top
public official," Harper said.
"Presumably they could do it
for university presidents,
school board members."
There is, however, some
good news for those fighting for
openness in government A few
bills would allow for the cre-
ation of paper records for vot-
ing systems. Another proposal
would establish custodians to
ensure timely responses to
public records requests.
And there's Gov. Charlie
Crist, who was honored with
the foundation's "Friend of the
First Amendment" award in
2005 when serving as attorney
general for his long-standing
advocacy for the state's
Sunshine Laws. He then creat-
ed an Office of Open
Government in his first act as
governor
"He's got to get his veto pen


ready," Harper said.
Some of the measures that
could possibly reach the new
Republican governor's desk
may come from Speaker Marco
Rubio's "100 Innovative Ideas
for Florida's Future" - some
that appear designed to
impede public access, though
the West Miami Republican
insists that's not the goal.
"I can't emphasize strongly
enough just how bad these bills
are and the devastating effect
they'll have on our rights of
access," said Barbara Petersen,
the foundation's president.
Perhaps the most egregious
proposal is in a House meas-
ure (H.B. 1213) that would in
effect reverse the public
records access by allowing citi-
zens to give permission to the
government to release infor-
mation about them, closing
down information now avail-
able to the public. It seems to
stem from Idea No. 53 in
Rubio's book of 100 initiatives.

Suspected meteorite
BLOOMINGTON, III.- When
Dee Riddle heard the breaking
glass, she thought her bathroom
mirror must have shattered.
What she found was quite differ-
ent: A grayish metallic object about
the size of a deck of cards had
crashed through a bedroom win-
dow and into a computer table.
Intrigued scientists from nearby
Illinois State University said it was
likely a meteorite.
"In my 36 years of investigating
meteorite calls, this looks like the
real thing," said Robert Nelson, a
geology professor at ISU. The last
confirmed meteorite to strike
Bloomington was in the '30s, he
said.
Nelson and other experts ruled
out the possibility that it had been
thrown by someone near the
house, and they said it wasn't likely
to have been space junk from a
satellite or spacecraft. The U.S.
Geological Survey's meteorite cen-
ter in Flagstaff, Ariz., will take part
in trying to positively identify the
object, Nelson said.
The object hit around 9:30 a.m.
March 5, Riddle said.
"We were just lucky no one was
sitting at the computer when it hap-
pened," she said.
Typo finally fixed
HAGERSTOWN, Md. - The city
of Hagerstown corrected a munici-
pal spelling error Thursday, 20
years after committing it.
A sign directing drivers to
"Municpal Stadium" was replaced
with one displaying the proper
spelling, said Erik Kline, city traffic.
control supervisor.
The sign was erected in the mid-
to late 1980s, but the error went
uncorrected until The (Hagerstown)
Herald-Mail brought it to City Hall's
attention this week, prompted by a
reader's complaint.
Kline said the longtime tolerance
for the misspelled sign shouldn't

be conclusive.


reflect poorly on the western

"I think it was a mistake that was
made. I don't know that it neces-
sarily makes us look bad," Kline
said.
'Simpsons' contest
SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -
Springfield, the Oregon one, is on
a list of like-named towns compet-
ing for the big-screen debut of
Homer, Bart and the rest of the TV
Simpson family this summer.
City officials accepted an invita-
tion from 20th Century Fox to com-


pete for the honor of hosting the
premiere screening of "The Simp-
sons Movie" in July.
Fox publicist Gwyne Ortiz said
Fox has asked 16 Springfields from
Oregon to Massachusetts to partic-
ipate. Fox will pick the winner after
reviewing short film entries show-
casing the community's positive as-
pects and links to the Simpsons,
who live in their own fictional
Springfield.

created by Oregon-born Matt
Groening is now in its 18th season.

to talk about, but this is something
that we might as well try to have a
little fun with," Springfield Mayor
Sid Leiken told the Register-Guard
newspaper.
Newsweek once called the
Simpsons' Springfield "America's
Crud Bucket," hardly an honor
worth fighting over.
The cartoon Springfield has a
nuclear power plant and several
prisons, amenities Oregon's
Springfield lacks.
Groening has said he chose
"Springfield" because it's one of the
more common city names in the
United States.
Weight-loss challenge
TALLAHASSEE - Pork in gov-
ernment isn't a good thing. Neither
are too many ham sandwiches and
pork chops, says the chairman of
the state House's health care
council.
Rep. Aaron Bean has chal-
lenged the chamber to see which
member can lose the most weight
by the end of the session. Weigh-
ins will be held this week and dur-
ing the final week of the session in
early May.
The friendly competition is
meant to promote healthier diets
and lifestyles, and the House is
challenging the Senate to lighten
the load as well.
"We need to set an example for
all Floridians," Bean said.


Venison for troops
FARGO, N.D. - U.S. troops in
Iraq may soon be getting a deer-ly
beloved taste of home.
A Veterans of Foreign Wars post
here is sending venison jerky donat-
ed by hunters.
Mark Wagemann, commander of
VFW Post 762, said he got the idea
for "Jerky Worth Fighting For" from
a magazine article.
The article told of a couple who
made venison jerky and shipped it
to their son who was serving in Iraq.
"I thought we could do the same
thing for troops from North Dakota
and Minnesota who are in Iraq,"
Wagemann said.
With hunters able to draw more
than one deer tag, Wagemann fig-
ured many hunters would be willing
to donate one or more of their deer
to the project.
"I thought we could do this on a
larger scale," he said. "Nobody eats
four deer a year, so I figured there
would be plenty available."
More than 1,000 pounds of jerky
and venison sticks have been
shipped to more than 40 soldiers
from North Dakota and Minnesota,
and new addresses arrive every
week.
"I was hoping we'd get 30 deer
donated when we started this proj-
ect," Wagemann said. "It's been
successful beyond my wildest
dreams."

Credit for bail
MISSOULA, Mont. - Hauled to
the pokey here and need to post
bail? Put it on plastic.
The Missoula County Detention
Center intends to accept credit-
card payments for bail, as part of
an effort to get people out of the
building sooner and control jail
crowding. For that reason, officials
also want to expand telephone
service for bail seekers, making it
easier to call for help.
Acceptance of credit cards is set
to begin today.
"The credit card machine is now
installed at the jail, so if you get
arrested and want to bail yourself
out, you can put it on your credit
card," said Margaret Borg, a former
chief public defender here.
The Missoula County Sheriffs
Department says that before long,
people in custody also likely will
have the option of calling cell-
phone numbers. The jail telephone
system now available to them
allows only collect calls.
Consequently, only calls to conven-
tional phones may be placed.
Officials also have raised the
amount for which inmates can write
checks to cover bail. Checks for
defendants in city court will be
accepted in sums up to. $250. In
Justice Court cases, the new limit
is $2,000.

Oregon rethinks

easing land-use limits


The Washington Post
SALEM, Ore. - Cities in Ore-
gon have suburbs that come to a
sudden and seemingly arbitrary
stop. They slammed into an
"urban growth boundary," which
for decades prevented town-
houses and strip malls from
invading the state's farmland
and forests.
A voter initiative in 2004, how-
ever, undermined the state's
land-use law. With the over-
whelming approval of Measure
37, which has been upheld in the
courts and is shredding the anti-
sprawl status quo, Oregonians
unwittingly replaced land-use
quirkiness with land-use chaos.
Many here are now suffering
from voter's remorse and want
the law fixed, according to opin-
ion polls, newspaper pundits
and a number of powerful state
politicians.
Measure 37 was sold to voters
as a common-sense tool that Ma
and Pa could use to cut through
red tape. It would, proponents
argued, allow property owners
to build homes for their children
and grandchildren on their


rural land. But timber compa-
nies and developers, which
largely bankrolled the campaign
for Measure 37, are also using it,
proposing large subdivisions
and commercial construction.
The law compels the govern-
ment to pay cash to longtime
landowners when land-use rules
reduce the value of their proper-
ty - or, if the government cannot
pay, to allow owners to develop
their land as they see fit
The Oregon Department of
Agriculture has warned that
claims filed under the law
threaten 132,000 acres of prime
farmland in the Willamette
Valley If Measure 37 stands -
and most land-development
claims under it are likely to be
granted to owners, because the
state cannot afford to compen-
sate for lost value - Oregon
could quickly lose 2 1/2 times as

Watts from the sea: Firms study wave power


Los Angeles Times
Off the western coast of Scotland, on the
Isle of Islay, science teacher Ray Husth-
waite turns on the light in his classroom.
The electricity comes from a power
cable that runs to the mainland.
But it also comes from the ocean.
A few miles from the school, wave action
compresses and decompresses air in a
chamber. The moving air powers a turbine,
which generates electricity.
"It is pleasant, on a choppy but sunny
day, to sit beside the gray, concrete struc-
ture and listen to the rising and falling of
the waves, driving air through the turbines
like the -breath of a great sea monster,"
Husthwaite said. "It seems insane to me to
be investing in nuclear power stations and
gas turbines when there are endless, free
energy resources in the rivers, oceans and
the wind."
In a world addicted to fossil fuel, turning
waves into watts might seem far-fetched.
But as the United States and other coun-
tries look for alternatives to oil, natural gas
and coal and try to curb global warming,
ocean power gradually is joining the ranks
of wind and solar power as a source of


renewable energy
Pacific Gas & Electric Co. caught the
wave last month when it became the first
California utility to file for permits to study
the promise of sea power; a non-polluting
but expensive and mostly untested way to
take energy from the ocean.
PG&E's proposed projects could provide
electricity for tens of thousands of homes,
said Keely Wachs, spokesman for the San
Francisco-based utility. "More importantly,
it's clean and totally renewable."
PG&E joins a global list of organizations
experimenting with harnessing ocean
power. In less than three years, U.S. energy
regulators have received nearly five dozen
applications for water-related energy proj-
ects from South Florida to Washington
state.
Islay's wave-power converter, the
Limpet 500, has been operating since 2000.
In Hawaii, the Navy has been churning up
electrons with the help of a floating buoy.
And in Portugal, engineers are installing
snakelike tubes designed to convert the
sea's motion into electricity.
"We're going to decide one way or anoth-
er to displace the use of fossil fuel by clean
fuel," said Roger Bedard, ocean energy

leader at the Electric Power Research
Institute, a utility industry think tank in
Palo Alto, Calif.
Anyone who has ever been slammed to
the sand by a wave can attest that the
ocean packs tremendous power.
Technology can harness that energy in sev-
eral ways. Some designs, like the Limpet,
use waves to push air through a column.
Others convert the sea's up-and-down
motion into mechanical energy
While U.S. regulators categorize wave
power as hydropower, it differs from other
methods of generating energy from water
Tidal power, for instance, relies on the
gravitational force of the sun and the moon
to provide energy. Wave power is less pre-
dictable than tidal power, but experts con-
sider it more potent.
The California Energy Commission esti-
mates that the state's 1,100-mile coastline
could generate seven to 17 megawatts a
mile, enough power per mile to serve as
many as 13,000 average homes. One wave-
power company executive told a congres-
sional committee last year that several
hundred square miles off the California
coast could supply the electrical needs of
all of the homes in the state.

SCIE iCE MATTERS




Science fairs


need school,




parental support


Science fairs, the competi-
tions that have encour-.
aged young minds since
the 1950s, seem to be losing
some of their luster. Reports
from many school districts indi-
cate the number of participants
is declining.
Some of the reasons given for
the decline in interest include
focus on the FCAT,
demanding paper- THE I1

son, at a time when ,rr.n.:ieor
technology and sci- , ornmertr a
ence are playing an ' "I ' l
.increaing role in_
daily life, it is unfortunate that
interest has declined in the
learning opportunities offered
by science fairs.
While Citrus County has seen
some reduction in the number of
participants, the decline here
seems to be less than in some
other counties. Credit for main-
taining interest goes to dedicat-
ed personnel in the school sys-
tem and to our local businesses,
which provide outstanding sup-
port to the local science fair.
Our science fair attracts stu-
dents from the elementary
grades through high school, with
projects from the relatively sim-
ple to the highly sophisticated.
Clearly, some of the more sophis-
ticated projects involve consid-
erable investment of time and

But the ultimate value of a sci-

sophistication of the project, or
whether it wins a prize. The real
value is learning how to conduct

Within days after the

photo of a visitor enjoying

to all those who reside beyond walk-

antagonize visitors and make them
feel unwelcome, the plan is success-

well to remember the great impact
of visitors upon the local economy
in Crystal River.
Bringing in God
I hate to burst your bubble about
this being founded as a Christian
country, but "In God We Trust" did
not appear on our paper money until
the 1950s. It was on coins back dur-
ing the Civil War because a preacher
didn't want archeologists looking in
our cities and finding out that we did-
n't have God mentioned somewhere
officially. In the beginning, post
offices were open on Sunday and
there was a big fight about that.
There was a big fight to pass all the
Sunday blue laws that have now been
undone, I might add. Thanksgiving
wasn't a holiday officially until quite a
while into our history. So, no, we
weren't founded as a Christian coun.
try, no matter how many times you
repeat the propaganda.


Captain America dies ... or does he?


W hen your time
comes to die, pray
the Maker grants .
you a Marvel Comics death.
Because death in the comic
book universe, unlike
death in the real world, has
a way of being only tempo-
rary.
Spider-Man's Aunt May
died, but it turned out she
was being held hostage and Leonai
the dead woman was an OTI
imposter. Vol
The Vision died, but his
operating system was downloaded into
a new body.
The Thing died, but his partners in
the Fantastic Four stormed heaven to
retrieve his soul.
In comic books, casket lids have
handles on the inside. So I was initial-
ly amused last week at the outpouring
of attention generated by Marvel's lat-
est death, the assassination of Captain
America on the steps of the federal
courthouse in New York City It made
"CNN," for goodness sake! And Fox
News. It also made international head-
lines, covered in newspapers from
New York to Los Angeles to Ottawa to
London to Sydney.
On reflection, r suspect there are
two reasons the world took notice. The
first: the graphic nature of the murder.
Captain America - Steve Rogers - is
shot by a sniper Then a sometime girl-
friend, acting under post-hypnotic sug-
gestion, finishes the job by pumping
three bullets into his stomach at close
range. Even in comic books, there's a

world than his. Meaning
terrorism, war and this
creeping sense some of us
have that our country is
being stolen.
d Pitts Captain America's shoot-
IER ing culminates an allegori-
CES cal post 9/11 storyline that
has seen him leading the
Resistance against an edict requiring
people with super powers to register
with, and. be regulated by, the federal
government. Those who refuse are
designated "unlawful combatants"
and disappeared without trial into
secret prisons. "Am I even in
America?" gasps one young hero as he
is being led away.
That's something many of us have
asked in these last years of govern-
ment sanctioned torture, secret sur-
veillance and Patriot actions.
Captain America has, since his cre-
ation in 1941, served as a mirror of
American moods, fears and aspira-
tions. In the '40s, he reflected
American determination to defeat the
Axis powers, in the '50s, American pre-
occupation with communism, in the
'70s, American disillusionment.
It is a stark sign of our times, then, to
see him led to court for defying the
federal government. For 66 years,
Captain America has been the con-

Westinghouse were enthusiastic at
first, but later refused to go nuclear
because the insurance companies
said that the risks were so great that i
they were not insurable. Insurance
actuaries calculated that a bad
nuclear accident in 1954 dollars could
cost more than $17 billion in property:
damage (probably 10 times that now),
could kill 45,000 people, and contami-
nate an area the size of Pennsylvania.
Thus, Congress passed a unique
piece of legislation in 1957 called the
Price-Anderson Act that limits the lia-
bility of industry to $560 million, most
of which would be paid for by the gov.
ernment (the taxpayers/victims), not
utilities. Congress not only passed thi.
legislation, but renewed it in 1965 and
again in 1974 and so on up to the
present
In a large reactor, the wastes that
accumulate each year are equal to
the fallout of 1,000 Hiroshima bombs.;
Cesium and strontium, two of the
wastes, remain deadly radioactive for!
700 years. Plutonium remains deadly
for more than 100,000 years. The peri-
od of years necessary to contain safe-,
ly these wastes is longer than the his-:
tory of civilization!
Would you want to buy property
next to the old Three Mile Island site
or Chernobyl? If your property is
damaged by a nuclear plant accident,
will it be restored or you receive com-i
pensation to rebuild somewhere else?
Under the Price-Anderson Act, we
will all be out of luck.
You can make a difference by vot-
ing, by contacting your representa-
tives about this and by talking about
this with your neighbors. Let's look at
ecology as more than, as L.C. Heller
said, '"A science which warns people
who won't listen, about ways they
won't follow, of saving an environment
they don't appreciate."

feel sorry for the people that live
in that area. I feel sorry for the
people that have to ride by
there. Has anyone else smelled
this smell? Yuck, it stinks.
Technology needed
Wednesday, Feb. 28,
"Fighting crime": It's time for
you to get out your dinosaur
and throw away your slingshot.
Today, without technology, there
would be more than one officer
killed in the line of duty every
53 hours. We need every piece
of equipment for all officers
and deputies, to keep them and
us safe. Without technology
they could and would allow
criminals to slip through their
fingers, and maybe that one
that got away would end up on
your doorstep or harm one of
your loved ones. After an officer
gets out of the academy, it
takes at least two years before
he is fully trained and groomed
as a deputy or a police officer.
They need all the equipment
possible to keep them and us
safe. You need to know that
your tax money that goes to the
sheriff's office or police depart-
ments is for your safety along
with theirs. Could you imagine

this country without policing?
Next time you need a cop, try
calling a crook.
Trail of stupidity
Has anybody laughed as
hard as I did when they saw
the new walkway along (U.S.)
19? First of all, it's so wide.
When is the last time you saw
10 people walking side by side?
At the most, you see two. And
if it wasn't so wide, then they
wouldn't have to put 37 signs
telling you "No motor vehicles."
Don't you think that we here in
Citrus County, it sounds like
we're fat and stupid to have it
that wide and 37 signs to tell
us no motor vehicles?
Somebody spent a lot of our
money and it was very, very
stupid.
Clinton's surplus
In regards to President
Clinton's so-called budget sur-
plus in his last year in office:
This surplus was an anticipated
surplus - that is expected, not
really real. In other words, a
surplus that was there but not
really there. "Anticipated" is the
word. Ha, ha.


Cypress Village
On Jan. 17, I attended the
Cypress Village Property
Owners Association board
meeting at the Sugarmill
Country Club. They said the
next meeting would be held on
Tuesday, Feb. 20 ... So we went
there and there was no meet-
ing. Today, Feb. 26, I read in
the paper that they held it on
Feb. 19 at Southern Woods
Country Club. What goes with
this bunch of board members?
They want our money, but they
don't want us to know what
they are doing. Vote no on your
ballot for the so-called office
building. They want to build it
in a flood area.
Reducing standard
When I was growing up, the
world looked to the United
States because of its high
standard of living. Today, the
United States sends jobs and
money outside of the country.
This is to reduce our standard
of living. Is there any reason
for this? When you find the
answer, please let me know.


ATV risk
This is to the parents in
Timberlane Estates who allow
their children to illegally oper-
ate ATVs on the streets of the
development: This is unlawful
and dangerous. It should be
stopped before someone gets
hurt or worse.
Disused dam
I'd like to know why the
Wysong Dam is not in the
upright position and is allowing
all the water to flow out into
the Gulf. It's been scientifically
proven that it keeps the water
levels higher, yet it's not being
used. This is wrong and needs
to be corrected.
Sewage rates
The water and sewage rates
in Inverness are being raised
again. They're already higher
than a lot of the surrounding
towns and areas. It seems like


the council doesn't get it. Well,
maybe they'll get it when we
boot them out at the next elec-
tion.
Weedy pond
Cooter Pond is a disgrace.
City officials are forever talking
about beautiful downtown
Inverness. They must be blind.
Cooter Pond is overrun with
weeds and you can see very lit-
tle water. This is what people
see when they come into our
city. Let us be proud of our city.
Low-end rag
In a recent paper, you pub-
lished a picture of Bill Gates
making an announcement of a
new Microsoft product. Why
did you put a caption on it that
said "Hi, I'm rich"? Things like
that make the difference
between a good newspaper and
a low-end rag. Unfortunately,
you fall into the latter category
when you do things like that.

Bush briefly in Colombia


Nation .: :,:.

Fire


President speaks about Iran, Syria


Associated Press

BOGOTA, Colombia - Presi-
dent Bush said Sunday that Iran
and Syria need to follow through
on pledges to help Iraq, but left
the door open to additional con-
tacts between Washington and
its chief Mideast foes.
"If they really want to help sta-
bilize Iraq, there are things for
them to do, such as cutting off
weapons flows and/or the flow of
suicide bombers into Iraq,"
Bush said during an appearance
here with Colombian President
Alvaro Uribe.
The president's cautious as-
sessment came on a six-hour
stop designed as a show of confi-
dence in Uribe and the battle
against narcoterrorists in this
strong but drug- and violence-


plagued U.S. ally It was his first
public comment about Satur-
day's international conference
held in Baghdad with Iraq, its
neighbors and other key coun-
tries, such as the United States.
The one-day, closed-door
meeting featured rare direct
communication between Iran
and the United States. Envoys
from the two countries did not
meet outside the larger meeting,
and each blamed the other for
Iraq's security crisis.
Reports of testy exchanges
aside, Bush praised the session
as constructive. He said he
hoped momentum from this con-
ference will carry over to the
next, which is expected to be
held next month in Turkey.
As a sign of the U.S. commit-
ment, he said, Secretary of State


Condoleezza Rice will be the
nation's representative next
time.
"People are now committed
publicly to helping Iraq, which I
thought was very positive. The
other benefit from the confer-
ence was that the government
gained some confidence," he
said. "In terms of the expecta-
tions of the next meetings, we'll
see."
Iran said it was ready to sup-
port any plan that would help
end the bloodshed in its neigh-
bor.
Responded Bush: "Those are
nice statements, and now they
can act on them."
Bush also sought to assure
Americans that 4,700 additional
U.S. troops being sent into Iraq
are slated for support roles only.
He said they are needed to help
the extra 21,500 combat troops
he ordered in January do their

jobs.
The president did not directly
respond to a question from a
reporter asking whether Ameri-
cans should expect more troop
increases.
Bush asked Congress on
Friday for $3.2 billion to pay for


the new Iraq troops, as well as
for 3,500 new U.S. troops to
expand training of local police
and army units in Afghanistan.
That money is to come out of
his request for nearly $100 bil-
lion to finance this year's war op-
erations in Iraq and Afghanistan.


Political pardons: Relief for recipient, grief for president


Associated Press

WASHINGTON - Richard
Nixon. Mark Felt. Caspar
Weinberger. Marc Rich.
Is President Bush willing to
risk - on behalf of ex-White
House aide I. Lewis "Scooter"
Libby - the kind of political
grief that pardons for those
four men brought the presi-
dents who granted them?
Nixon resigned the presi-
dency over the Watergate
scandal. Felt was the FBI man
convicted of ordering illegal
break-ins. Weinberger was the
defense secretary charged in
the Iran-Contra scandal. Rich
was a fugitive financier.
All received presidential
pardons processed outside
normal channels.,
As in those cases, Bush
would have to bypass the reg-
ular clemency process to par-
don Libby for the four felonies
he was convicted of on
Tuesday
Such pardons historically
have gotten presidents into
political trouble.
A number of conservative
politicians, bloggers and com-
mentators, including National
Review and Wall Street
Journal editorial writers,
want Libby pardoned -
preferably now. Top Dem-
ocrats have demanded that
Bush pledge not to pardon
Vice President Dick Cheney's
former chief of staff.
William Jeffress, one of
Libby's lawyers, said, "I
believed a pardon for Scooter
was appropriate last sum-
mer" when it came out that a
State Department official, not
Libby, was the initial source
for a newspaper column dis-
closing the classified CIA job
of Valerie Plame, wife of Iraq
war critic Joseph Wilson.
Bush's spokesman Tony
Snow has tried to dampen
speculation. Snow said Bush
is "careful" about pardons
and takes the process very
seriously. "He wants to make
sure that anybody who
receives one - that it's war-
ranted," Snow said.

president absolute power to

Donations pooled online getting attention of candidates


The Washington Post

In a political fundraising
world traditionally dominated
by lobbyists and wealthy busi-
ness executives, small-dollar
donor Hrishi Karthikeyan
found a way to make his own
splash, right from his desk.
With tools offered free on
Barack Obama's Internet site,
Karthikeyan, 28, created his
own "South Asians for Obama"
Web portal to gather money
from friends who were inspired
to support his favorite candi-
date. Within days, he was able
to forward to Obama's presi-
dential campaign $1,600 -
more than he ever planned to
give on his own - in bundled
contributions from those who
saw the targeted site.
"I started hearing from peo-


ple I never met," he said in
wonderment.
Karthikeyan is part of a
movement that political strate-
gists hope will transform
Internet fund raising from a
spigot, capable of providing
candidates quick spurts of cash
here and there, into an around-
the-clock supplier of major dol-
lars.
Doug Kelly, a consultant who
served as the Democratic
National Committee's technol-
ogy director, said he believes
that by November 2008, "the
Internet will be the single
largest source of revenue for
most presidential campaigns -
far outdoing direct mail and
other sources."
The growth in online fund
raising has been dramatic since
1994, when candidates' Web


sites offered only a mailing
address where visitors could
send checks.
Just last week, Sen. John
McCain, R-Ariz., invited every-
one who had registered on his
Web site to buy a $100 e-ticket to
an upcoming fund-raiser they
could "attend" online.
Earlier this month, the cam-
paign manager for former Sen.
John Edwards, D-N.C., tried to
tap into an impulsive online-
donor world by relaying to sup-
porters a conservative pundit's
inflammatory remark about the
candidate.
And Sen. Hillary Rodham
Clinton, D-N.Y, announced
that e-mailed entreaties from
her husband, former President
Clinton, raked in $1 million
from 15,000 donors in a single
week


In 2000, McCain stunned
competitors by raising more
than $6 million in Internet
donations before his campaign
shut down. Four years later,
Democrat Howard Dean
hauled in nearly $30 million
online.
Even then, Dean campaign
manager Joe Trippi says, they
were just scratching the sur-
face.
"We were pioneering across
the great prairie in a covered
wagon," he says of the 2004
campaign. "We didn't have
YouTube or Facebook or
MySpace the way we do now."
And now come Web sites
such as ActBlue, which aims to
combine the power and passion
of political blogging with the
ability to instantly contribute to
Democratic candidates.


Streams of small donations
are bundled into larger sums
that are certain to grab the
attention of candidates - not
unlike lobbyists who might
arrive at a candidate breakfast
carrying an envelope of checks
from clients and partners.
The Pew Internet and
American Life Project found
last year that 73 percent of
Americans - about 147 million
adults - now use the Internet
To tap that audience, presiden-
tial contenders have invested
hundreds of thousands of dol-
lars in innovations such as e-
mail solicitations tailored to a
supporter's interests; install-
ment plans that let donors
make small, monthly contribu-
tions; blogs to help turn sup-
porters into donors; and the
bundling technology.

Gators get top

billing in repeat bid
Associated Press


Si INDIANAPOLIS - So much for the little
guy Big boys like defending champion
Florida and No. 1-ranked Ohio State are
among the top-seeded favorites, while the dar-
ling mid-major teams get surprisingly few
,LAAS chances to turn the NCAA tournament into a free-
for-all for underdogs.
March Madness officially began Sunday when the
pairings were announced, kicking off office and
online pools and triggering debate about seedings,
who went where and who didn't make it at all.
Florida will try to become the first team since 1992
to repeat as champion - and the first ever with the
same five starters - and the Gators will do it with their
first overall top seed in the tournament, leapfrogging
Ohio State courtesy of three straight routs in the
Southeastern Conference tournament. North Carolina and
Kansas were the other No. 1 seeds, rounding out a group that
all won both their regular-season and conference tournament
championships.
"It's a compliment to our season as a body of work," said
Florida coach Billy Donovan, whose team rebounded to finish 29-
5 after losing three games at the end of the regular season.
Still, it's hardly a guarantee the Gators will be in Atlanta for the
Final Four on March 31. Last season, they won it all as a No. 3 seed,
and not a single top-seeded school made it to the Final Four for the
first time since 1980.
Falling to a No. 2 was last year's national runner-up, UCLA, which
looked headed for a No. 1 seed until losing its last two games, including
the quarterfinals of the Pac-10 tournament
But the real surprise came in the meager number of at-large bids hand-
ed out to mid-major teams. Only six of 34 spots went to the little guys,
down from eight last year and 12 in 2004.
It means fewer opportunities for a repeat of last year, when 11th-seeded
George Mason - the commuter college in Virginia - struck a blow for the

INDIANAPOLIS - Syracuse.
figured 22 victories and a winning
S conference record would earn it an
NCAA tournament bid.
Surprise.
Not this year. . -
With a record - 104 20-win
teams under consideration for
the 65-team field and upsets
everywhere in the conference
B ' tournaments, the Orange (22-10) were
flthbbergasted when Sunday's pairings
: ere announced.
"You look at the numbers, and it's hard
to believe. But it's done. There's no use in
talking about it," coach Jim Boeheim said.
"I'm very disappointed. It doesn't do any good
to get angry"
Until Sunday, Syracuse had made the field every year
since winning the 2003 national title. This year, they must set-
tle for a No. 2 seed in the NIT and a date with South Alabama.
Part of the problem for the selection committee, chairman Gary
Walters said, was deciphering the Big East's conference schedule
- teams play some teams only once and others not at all during
the regular season. Walters said that hurt Syracuse's case, while
teams playing natural round-robins in league play had a stronger S
resume because they played each of their conference's best teams \
twice.
"One of the things that complicates things was the unbalanced
schedule in conference play," Walters said. "Outside the league,
there were also some people scrutinizing the nonconference schedule
in a very intense way."
His 10-member committee took only six Big East teams, including a
Villanova squad that matched Syracuse's 22-10 record but finished a
game behind the Orange in conference play at 9-7.

top in points by 6

Associated Press

LAS VEGAS - New track
configuration, same old results
for Jimmie Johnson.
The defending series cham-
pion beat teammate Jeff
Gordon on Sunday to win his
third straight Nextel Cup race
at Las Vegas Motor Speedway
Johnson had few problems
navigating his way around the
track that was under intense
scrutiny all weekend because
of changes owner Bruton
Smith made to the 1.5-mile
speedway. It included an
increase in the banking from 12
degrees to 20, and a curved pit
lane unlike anything the driv-
ers had seen before.
Because the new surface
produced such fast speeds,
Goodyear had to bring a very
hard left-side tire that was
capable of withstanding the
loads. The drivers didn't like
that, either, and spent the
entire weekend complaining
about the conditions.
But it didn't bother Johnson,
who overcame a pit-road
penalty and a minor brush with
the wall to lead 89 of the 267
laps en route to the 150th
NASCAR victory for Hendrick
Motorsports.
It came at Gordon's expense,
though.
Gordon dominated the race
by leading 111 laps, and
appeared poised to tie the late

Dale Earnhardt for sixth place

ing a late round of pit stops,
and gave up the lead with 32
laps to go when Jeff Burton

passed him.
Johnson got by both of them
five laps later and held on after
a final restart with 11 to go.
Gordon finished second for a 1-
2 finish for Hendrick
"I thought we had, this won
here," Gordon said. "We just
got beat We keep bringing cars
like this, we'll win some."
Denny Hamlin finished third
and was followed by Matt
Kenseth, Mark Martin and Carl
Edwards.
Martin is still on top of the
points standings, up six over
Gordon. Martin, who has never
won a Nextel Cup title, is plan-
ning to run only 23 races this
season and is expected to sit
out of the race at Bristol later
this month.
"The plans haven't changed,"
Martin said, "Yet"


Tony Stewart, the most vocal
critic of the track and the tires,
finished seventh.
He was followed by Ryan
Newman, Las Vegas native
Kyle Busch and Jamie
McMurray.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. wound up
a disappointing 11th after a
mental error cost him a top-
five finish.
He was in fifth when Kasey
Kahne's wreck brought out the
final caution, and didn't notice
that pit road was closed when
he mistakenly followed Jeff
Burton down it.
"I followed the 31. I followed
the 31. I wasn't even looking at
the (pit road) light," he radioed
his team.
The penalty dropped him to
13th on the restart.
He picked up two spots in
the finishing order and 12 in
the points - he's now 28th
overall.
Even without the mistake,
Earnhardt wouldn't have chal-
lenged the Hendrick tandem of
Johnson and Gordon, who had
the field covered for most of
the race.
But it was Johnson who
wound up in Victory. Lane,
even after a tire rolled loose on
pit road earlier in the race.
The penalty dropped
Johnson to 25th, but he wasted
little time moving back to the
front.
He also brushed the wall at
some pqint to make for an
eventful race.
"I got into the wall and
thought I had messed up the
car," he said. "We overcame a
lot of adversity."
The race was marred by nine
cautions, most of them prod-
ucts of the new configuration
and tough tire. David Ragan
spun on the opening lap, and
Casey Mears, Robby Gordon
and Ward Burton were in a
three-car accident 10 laps in.
Joe Nemechek and Dave
Blaney wrecked eight laps
after that
"There's just no grip at all,"
said Mears, who blamed
Gordon for the accident.
"Everybody is having a hard
time getting a hold of their
cars."

Bill Self cut down the nets to com-

Big 12 tournament title, a shout
came from the crowd: "And now a

After surviving another stellar

"Our confidence level is pretty

Brandon Rush said. "Just making

"I hope they enjoyed the feel-
ing of cutting down the nets and
getting those trophies. Winning
championships is not easy,"
Williams said. "I told them that
at maybe the 4-minute timeout
1 said, 'Hey, I'm not concerned
about State making a run.
Winning championships is not
supposed to be easy."
N.C. State (18-15) reached
the title game with an improb-
able run that included upsets
of second-seeded Virginia,
third-seeded Virginia Tech and
defending champion Duke,
which had won seven of the
previous eight ACC titles.
But winning four games in
four days was too much to ask
of the 10th-seeded Wolfpack,
especially against a team as
balanced as top-seeded North
Carolina.
Williams used 11 players,
substituting as many as five at a
time, while building a 16-point
lead. Brandon Costner, Gavin
Grant and Courtney Fells led a
29-14 run that trimmed N.C.
State's deficit to 70-69 but the
Wolfpack ran out of gas in the
last five minutes.
Terry scored eight straight for
North Carolina, then the Tar
Heels made nine of 10 free throws
in the final 1:14 to stay ahead.

Although the mid-majors
earned just six at-large bids,
the big conferences also
endured big losses.
Pac-10 team Washington
reached the regional semifi-
nals last year but struggled late
this season. And the Big East's
West Virginia (22-9) also was
denied a bid.
Air Force (23-8), which had
an RPI rating of 30, couldn't
overcome a late-season swoon
that included six losses in its
last seven games. And Kansas
State (22-11) was left out, in
part, because it came from the
Big 12's weaker north division.
In a telephone interview
with ESPN, coach Bob
Huggins said the Wildcats can't

underdog in a stirring trip to
the Final Four.
"Last year, the impression
was that the tournament com-
mittee had gone overboard in
selecting mid-majors," selec-
tion committee chairman Gary
Walters said. "But when we
start the process, we throw
conference affiliation out the
window ... and it shakes out
where it shakes out."
While their sheer quantity
wasn't impressive, some .mid-
majors thrived in other ways.
Southern Illinois earned a
fourth seed and Butler a fifth.
Meanwhile, Big South champi-
on Winthrop and America East
champion Albany were seeded
unusually high at 11th and
13th, respectively.
Parity reigned this year with
a record 104 teams winning 20
games or more, raising the pos-
sibility of a mid-major revolu-
tion when the brackets came
out
It wasn't to be. Instead, the
final five bubble spots went to
Arkansas, Illinois, Stanford,
Purdue and Texas Tech - all
from power conferences.
The Atlantic Coast
Conference placed the most
teams in the tournament with
seven, while the Big East, Pac-
10 and Big Ten had six each,
the SEC five and the Big 12
four. No mid-major had more
than two.
Old Dominion of the
Colonial Athletic Conference
did get an at-large bid, but
Missouri State (0-5 against the
top two teams in its league), Air
Force (season-ending four-
game losing streak) and, maybe
most stunningly, Drexel (fin-
ished behind Old Dominion
and Hofstra in the CAA), were
left out
"It's very disappointing, not
just that you didn't get in, but
when you look at some of the
teams that did," said coach
Bruiser Flint of Drexel, which
went 23-8 with 13 road wins.
Little guys weren't the only
ones disappointed.
Kansas State looked safe in
Bob Huggins' first year as
coach but didn't make it.
Neither did Florida State. And
the biggest surprise of all
might have been to bypass
Syracuse, 22-10 and winner of
seven of its last 10.
"I have no way of under-
standing why we're not in the
tournament," coach Jim
Boeheim said. "You look at the
numbers and it's hard to
believe. But it's done. There's
no use in talking about it"
Other notables from
Selection Sunday included:
- Lute Olson of Arizona
making his 23rd straight
appearance in the tournament,
tying the record held by Dean
Smith at North Carolina.
- Louisville getting a nice
break, earning only a sixth
seed, but having to travel only
an hour down Interstate 64 to
play in Lexington's Rupp
Arena, home of rival Kentucky.
- A very angry Niagara
team, relegated to Tuesday
night's, play-in game against
Florida A&M despite a 22-11
record that included an 11-



OMISSIONS

Continued from Page 1B

Some thought the Big East
might get eight bids. The way
things played out, there was no
chance. When schools such as
Butler and Nevada lost in their
conference tournaments, some
of those precious 34 at-large
bids that could have helped
schools such as Syracuse
slipped away.
"Jim Boeheim is a .good
friend of mine," Walters said.
"I hope he still is. It was a very,
very difficult call, but we had
some difficult calls among the
last five or six teams."
Syracuse wasn't the only
team complaining Sunday
Among the other big surpris-
es left out of the tournament
were Kansas State, Air Force,
West Virginia, Washington and
Drexel.


schedule that hurt Syracuse
helped Stanford, who went 3-6
over the final four weeks of the
season.
The Cardinal had non-con-
ference wins against Texas
Tech and Virginia and split
Pac-10 games against UCLA,
Washington State, USC and
Oregon. But there were also
losses to Gonzaga and Air
Force.
The Cardinal (18-12) drew an
11th seed in the 'South
Regional and will play No. 6

round game Thursday in

"Nothing makes sense to
me," coach Joe Mihalich said.
"Let me be diplomatic here -
I'm confused."
- A first-round matchup
between Marquette and
Michigan State pitting former
Spartans assistant Tom Crean
against his old boss, Tom Izzo.
A possible second-round
matchup between Illinois
coach Bruce Weber and his for-
mer assistant at Southern
Illinois, Chris Lowry, who
moved into Weber's spot a year
after he left
"I don't think it's a coinci-
dence, no," Weber said.
- A possible Pittsburgh-
UCLA matchup in the Wdst
Regional that would match
Bruins coach Ben Howlafid
against the team he lift.
UCLA's first-round matchuPfis
against Weber State,
Howland's alma mater.
- Top-seeded Florida, Ifest
team in the South, moved to
the Midwest Regional, where it
would have to play in St. Louis;
Ohio State, best team in .the
Midwest, placed in the South
Regional, where it would have
to go through San Antonio.
"When we looked at the
mileage, it was a little bit of a
push," Walters said. "St. Louis
seemed like a more natural
area for Florida to go."
The Gators defeated Ohio
State 86-60 back in December,
but that was before sensational
freshman, Greg Oden, was 'a
factor for the Buckeyes; he was
just coming back from a broken
wrist. Walters said it wasn't so
much that victory, as Florida's
overall performance this sea-
son, that led the committee to
list the Gators as the top team.
"That was a decisive victo-
ry," Walters said. "But one has
to acknowledge that Ohio State
was, at that time, just getting
Oden into the mix. I think Billy
Donovan would be the first to
concede that Ohio State is a
very worthy first-line team."
At first glance, the East
Regional seems to be the
toughest. There, North
Carolina earned its record 11th
top seed, but second-seeded
Georgetown has won 15 of 16
and fourth-seeded Texas is led
by freshman Kevin Durant,
who might be the best player in
the country.
"We should have some confi-
dence from winning the ACC
tournament, but as I've always
said, you build your momen-
tum in the NCAA tournament,"
Tar Heels coach Roy Williams
said.
The easiest path? Maybe its
Florida in the Midwest, though
nobody would relish that possi-
ble second-round matchup
against Olson and Arizona.
All that's debatable, as was
the committee's decision -to
offer so few spots to the under-
dog teams that have put so
much of the madness into
Marches past.
"It would be the height of
arrogance to say we get every-
thing 100 percent right all the
time," Walters said. "I'm not
suggesting that not selecting
Drexel isn't the right decision.
But I am suggesting if you put
10 people around a table, pjpe
could come up with different
results."

put all the blame on the selec-
tion committee. ,,
"The reality is, we. should
have won more games," he
said. "If we win more games,
we don't have to worry abooit
any of this."..
Nearly as surprising as, tle
committee's omissions wete

Calcavecchia hangs on in PODS


Slocum misses

S4-foot putt to tie

- PALM HARBOR - Mark
Calcavecchia might have to
"unpack his bags again, this
time to make room for an
Unlikely trophy
_" Calcavecchia, ready to leave
IJnnisbrook after opening with
a .75, survived a wild swing in
Sdemotions Sunday and won the
,PODS Championship when
'Jj'eath Slocum missed a 4-foot
,p/ar putt on the final hole.
' Calcavecchia closed with a 1-
under 70 and never lost the
,Jad, but his stomach was
^churning the whole way
around. He had a two-shot lead
and stood over a 4-foot birdie
putt on the 15th hole that he
missed, then had to hang on for
dear life.
With Calcavecchia ahead by
one shot, his 8-iron came up
short of the 18th green and he
'missed a 7-foot par putt.


Associated Press
Mark Calcavecchia holds the
trophy after winning the PODS
Championship golf tournament
Sunday in Palm Harbor.


Slocum needed only to make
par from 4 feet to force a play-
off. The putt dipped in and out
of the cup on the left side, and
Calcavecchia bowed his head
and cupped his cap.
"I was all over the place," he
said. "I never expected him to
miss that"
Calcavecchia won for the
13th time in his career and with
$954,000 went over $20 million
for his career He finished at 10-
under 274.
Getting a nice cut of that pay-
check is his caddie, Eric
Larson, who got caught up in a
small-time drug operation and
was sent to prison for 11 years.
Calcavecchia said he would put
him back to work when he got
out of jail, and they've been
together the last year.
"He's been a great friend
throughout the whole ordeal,"
said Larson, one of the most lik-
able loopers on tour. "I'm
thankful and grateful for my
friends who stood by me."
It was a big blow for Slocum,
who rallied from a wretched
start to close with a 71. He
played on the same Milton High
School team in the Florida
Panhandle as Boo Weekley,
who last week missed a 3-foot
par putt to win the Honda
Classic.
Slocum and John Senden,
who closed with a 66, shared
second at 275.
Lucas Glover, among five play-
ers who had a share of the lead
at some point on a sunny after-
noon, three-putted the 18th in a
bold bid to make birdie to keep
alive his hopes. He wound up
with a 69 and tied for fourth with
Brian Gay (69). Charles Howell
III shot 65 and was another shot
behind with defending champi-
on KJ. Choi (72).
It was a wild week for
Calcavecchia, a streaky player
who showed both sides in the
final round.


Associated Press
John Senden blasts from the sand trap on the 17th hole during the final round of the PODS
Championship golf tournament Sunday in Palm Harbor. Senden finished tied for second place, one
shot behind winner Mark Calcavecchia.


A triple bogey-bogey finish
Thursday that sent him to a 75
- with 36 putts, no less -
made him pack his bags so he
could get an early start on traf-
fic when he missed the cut the
next day But using a putter he
bought last weekend for
$256.18 - he knows the price
because he rarely buys any
club - he shot 67, then tied the
course record with a 62 in the
third round to share the lead.
The final 18 holes featured
long putts and short misses.
He figured the last one might
cost him. Having hit a beautiful


tee shot on the 18th, he hung
his head while his 8-iron was
still in the air, knowing it wasn't
enough. It came up a yard short
in grass so thick that Larson
had to show him where it was.
Calcavecchia chopped it out to
7 feet, and his par putt caught
the right lip.
Slocum had a 25-foot birdie
putt the was difficult because
the ball picks up speed around
the hole. He left it short, then
missed the most crucial one of
the day
The victory was the first for
the 46-year-old Calcavecchia


since the 2005 Canadian Open.
It put him into the World Golf
Championship at Doral in two
weeks, and gives him an out-
side shot of qualifying for the-
Masters. Calcavecchia moved
up to No. 7 on the money list,
and the top 10 after Doral get
into the Masters.
From the time he stuffed his
approach to 2 feet on the sec-
ond hole for birdie,
Calcavecchia never lost the
lead, and he built the margin to
three shots when he knocked
in a 10-foot birdie on the tough
sixth hole to reach 11 under


Four holes later, he was in a
three-way tie.
Calcavecchia missed the
eighth and 10th green to make
bogeys, while Senden and
Glover were quietly picking off
enough birdies to join him atop
the leaderboard at 9 under.
Calcavecchia regained the
lead by laying up on the par-5
11th and hitting wedge int: 3
feet, then holed a 30-foot birdie
putt from the fringe on the 13th
and a 20-foot birdie putt on the
14th to seize control - only to
lose momentum by missing a'4-
foot birdie on the 15th that
might have sealed the win.
Not many would have
guessed Slocum would be
there to battle him down the
stretch after his double bogey
on No. 2 He was four shots
behind going to the back nine.
But he didn't make any mis-
takes the rest of the way, firing
off three straight birdies to get
back into contention, and
pulling within one shot when
Calcavecchia bogeyed the 16th.
Divots:@ Chris DiMarco was
trying to' hit out of the trees on
No. 6 when his shot banged off
a pine, ricocheted into the
crowd and struck a boy in the
shin. The boy doubled over in
pain and eventually was taken
away in a cart, although he
appeared to be fine. DiMarco
chipped out and made double
bogey, then fired at the pin and
went over the green at No. 7 to
make bogey, and his day was
over. He closed with a 74 to fin-
ish in a tie for 19th, extending
his winless streak on the PGA
Tour to 134 events. ... Brad
Faxon made his first cut of the
year, closing with a 69. "That
was my best ball-striking
round. That was very nice.
Now if I can only do it in front
of somebody," said Faxon, who
was among the early starters
and played before about a
dozen fans.

Miller said troopers will use

to reconstruct the crash before
filing any charges. The investiga-
tion could take up to two months.
"Witnesses tell us they were
engaged in a street race," Miller
said. "They estimated speeds at

Atwal was the first Indian-

tured the 2002 Caltex Singapore

to PGA Tour qualifying school a
year later and earned his card.
He nearly won a PGA Tour
event two years ago. He was in
Bali on his honeymoon in
March 2005 when his parents
warned him of impending
storms, so he and his wife head-
ed for their Florida home.
Because the BellSouth Classic
in Atlanta began late that week,
he got into the tournament and
wound up in a five-man playoff.
Atwal was eliminated on the

ment, won by Phil Mickelson.
He struggled last year and

Rockets blast


Heat hold on,

beat Wzards by 2
Associated Press
HOUSTON - IfYao Ming still
isn't all the way back from his
leg injury, the Orlando Magic
couldn't tell.
Yao had 37 points and four
blocked shots in his biggest
game since returning to the
lineup, leading the Houston
Rockets to a 103-92 victory over
the Magic on Sunday.
Yao, who also had seven
rebounds, was playing his
fourth game since returning
from a broken right leg that
caused him to miss 32 games.
"Actually it's getting better
every day," said Yao, who had
four turnovers. "But my
turnovers are still too high and
my rebounds are still too low.
"I don't know how long it will
be before I make it all the way
back I don't have experience
with this kind of injury, so I
don't know how long to say."
The Rockets know he's get-
ting closer.
"Yao's doing great," said
Shane Battier, who had 12
points, eight rebounds and four
blocks. "It'll be a couple of
weeks before he's in great con-
dition. But his progress has
been good.

MIAMI- Udonis Haslem's 10-
footer in the lane with 0.3 seconds
left capped a wild back-and-forth
game and gave the Miami Heat a
106-104 victory over the
Washington Wizards on Sunday
night.
The Heat blew a 16-point first-half
lead, then rallied from a 12-point
second-half deficit to win their sixth
straight overall and 12th straight at


home - plus get within one game
of Washington in the Southeast
Division.
Eddie Jones had 18 points and
Gary Payton added a season-high
17 for the Heat, who had all eight
players in their rotation score in
double figures.
Gilbert Arenas scored 33 for the
Wizards, including three free throws

Grubby friend needs to clean up


ear Annie: I have a 50-year-old
single friend who visits us
three or four times a year.
"Sally" is a wonderful person and a
good houseguest, except for one thing.
The woman will not wash
her hands. She takes a very
quick shower in the morn-
ing, but for the rest of the
day, her hands never see
soap again. When she uses -
the bathroom, the most she
will do is rinse the tips. of
her fingers for about three
seconds.
After a day of shopping
and then dinner, she won't
.wash her hands. I've seen
Sally eat greasy burgers
and pizza, and she will still ANN
come home, use the bath- MAIL
room and go to bed. I've
offered her antibacterial wipes, but
she refuses. I know this sounds pretty
mean, but I don't want someone in my
kitchen handling food and putting ice
in drinks when her hands aren't clean.
My doorknobs are actually slick
from her dirty fingers. I'm sorry, but I
am just disgusted with this lack of
hygiene. What should I do? After she
leaves, I have to wipe down every sur-
face she's touched. I don't want her
germs all over my house and dishes.
Help. - Disgusted in Peoria, Ill.
Dear Peoria: This isn't just disgust-
ing, it's an infection waiting to hap-


L


pen. We assume you want to continue
inviting Sally to your home, so you
need to be more direct. Tell her that
thoroughly washing one's hands with
soap and water is the single most
effective way to prevent
colds and other viruses.
Ask that she wash before
preparing food or putting
ice in your drink, and
remind her. If she still
refuses, give her disinfec-
tant and paper towels and
ask her to wipe down every
surface she touches, or
you'll be happy to reserve a
room at a hotel for her.
Enough already.
Dear Annie: I was attend-
IIE'S ing my sister's funeral yes-
.BOX terday when a young lady
walked up to me at grave-
side and handed me an envelope.
When I got home, I opened it to find
an invitation to her wedding, which is
two months away. This girl has a col-
lege degree. I was rather shocked to
think someone with a good education
could be so rude and ignorant. Getting
my address would have been no prob-
lem.
Am I out of touch, or is this the lat-
est trend? - In Need of an Answer
Dear Need: Neither. A good educa-
tion does not preclude someone being
an ignorant boor. In case anyone else
out there doesn't know better, a funer-


al is a solemn occasion and not an
appropriate place to hand out party
invitations of any kind.
Dear Annie: I'm responding to the
letter from "Mrs. Robinson's
Husband," who wrote that his son's 22-
year-old friend was smitten with his
wife. Your advice was a little too gen-
tle. The young man was more than
smitten. He had propositioned the
wife. But then, the couple "just
laughed it off" - giving the guy per-
mission to keep trying.
The couple needs to firmly, but
kindly, confront the young man (when
he's sober) about his unacceptable
and unwelcome behavior. They need
to do this together, because this is not
only a transgression against the wife.
There also need to be immediate con-
sequences. New boundaries are nec-
essary, and the guy must commit to
honor their requests. Only then can
there be any chance of restoring the
friendship and helping this guy grow
up.
This may sound harsh, but it likely
will nip his behavior in the bud. It
could also save this guy a lot of future
grief if he should stupidly proposition
a woman with a jealous and danger-
ous husband. - Older and Wiser in
Kentucky
Dear Older and Wiser: We know a
lot of readers will agree that your
advice is better than ours. Thanks for
the suggestions.

Partner opens one of a suit How
many points do you need to
respond?
Next, look at the North hand.
Partner opens one diamond and
West passes. What would you do?
Traditional wisdom requires six
points to respond, but if you have a
fit for partner, adding shortage
points will "permit" you to bid with
fewer than six high-card points.
At the table, North responded
one spade - perhaps carrying the
"bid those majors" idea a tad too
far. A raise to two diamonds might
have been wiser.
South rebid three clubs, forcing
to game. North gave preference
with three diamonds. South
showed his three-card spade sup-
port. North, not holding five
spades, retreated to four dia-
monds. Then North's nightmare
continued - South employed
Blackwood. North bravely (and
correctly) admitted to one ace, and
South bid six diamonds. (South
might have opened two clubs, but
he knew he would run out of space
after a two-diamond response and
three-diamond rebid.)
West leads the heart queen to
dummy's ace. What should South
do?

Finally, East should not cover

Today's HOROSCOPE=


Your Birthday - There is a strong possibility that you
will establish not one, but two enviable associations.
They will be with individuals who are just as concerned
about advancing your dreams and wishes as you are
with them.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) - In situations where
you find yourself in an authority position, you'll do your-
self proud. You'll exhibit the right amount of firmness
without jeopardizing being fair and just at all times.
Aries (March 21-April 19) - Put your creative abili-
ties to work for you in matters that are important to your
future welfare. You're particularly original now and may
come up with something quite productive.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) - You're especially good
at being able to mastermind the affairs of others with
ways and means that could improve conditions for them.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) - Some changes in the
way you handle others will make you quite fortunate in
situations that require teamwork.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) - This could be the per-
fect day to do a little negotiating with the boss in order to
improve your working conditions. When you get an
opening, state your case.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -An important objective can


be achieved, but you might have to tackle it in a round-
about manner or go through an intermediary.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Most of the time we can
only get to the top by leaning on the arms of those we
have helped. Remember this if someone needs a favor;
it could be your means for reaching the summit.
Libra (Sept 23-Oct. 23) - What makes you an
extremely effective salesperson is that others will per-
ceive you as one who won't promote anything you do not
sincerely believe in. Sincerity will make your pitch.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Your imagination and
creative flair in handling financial matters could be par-
ticularly outstanding.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Persons who have
to deal with you on a one-on-one basis will intuitively
sense that you could be a person to be reckoned with.
Consequently, they're not likely to overstep the mark.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - The best formula for
getting others to go along with your plans and wishes is
to appeal to their emotions, especially those you are very
close to. They won't be able to resist your pleas.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Stronger bonds can
be established with a person in whom you're very inter-
ested but have yet to get close to.
