Church hosting 9/11 tribute


Event will be Tuesday evening at

It was the defining event of
our nation's recent history and
the day that should never be for-


gotten, say the organizers of the
annual Sept 11 remembrance
service.
Beginning at 7 p.m. Tuesday
at Heritage Baptist Church in
Beverly Hills, the community is
invited to participate in a patri-


otic program thanking local
emergency first responders and
saluting local military veterans
and active duty members.
This year, the featured guest
speaker will be Chaplain Maj.
Ken Stone, USAE
"He's back from Iraq and now
lives in Atlanta," said the Rev.
David Hamilton, pastor of
Heritage Baptist Church. "He
spoke at our first program and
people remember him."


The program will also include
the patriotic musical, "The Land
of the Free," as well as the pres-
entation of a plaque to Wayne
Martin, chief of Nature Coast
Emergency Medical Services,
on behalf of all local EMS per-
sonnel.
In years past, the community
has honored Sheriff Jeff Dawsy
and Fire Chief Richard Stover.
"We present them with a
plaque and they explain what


they do (on the job)," Hamilton
said.
A moving part of the service
each year is a tribute to those
who are currently serving or
have served in the military. As
the different military hymns
play and the corresponding
emblem from that branch of the
service is shown on a video
screen, military members fill

Rapist wants life sentence reduced


TERRY WITT

Chronicle
A twice-convicted rapist who spent
much of life in state prison will appear
today in Citrus County Circuit Court to
plead for his freedom.
Randy Ray Arnett, 43, has filed a


motion asking Circuit Judge Ric
Howard to correct an illegal life sen-
tence imposed on him in 1991 for.the
rapes.
Arnett argues in his motion for re-
sentencing that he was unaware in 1991
that if he had been sentenced under
1983 state guidelines he would have
received a lighter sentence.


He is asking Howard to give him 12
years in prison with credit for time
served, a sentence he believes would
result' in his release from prison.
Arnett was convicted in 1980 of rap-

It's the last call for public input about
the 2007-08 Citrus County school budget
and millage rate.
At 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, a public hearing
will take place at the District Services
Center in Inverness. Citrus County citi-
zens will have the chance to voice their
opinions to school board members
before they adopt the final tax rate and
budget,

Numbers cloud debate as Congress awaits Iraq commander


Testimony before Congress begins today


Associated Press
WASHINGTON - In vertical
bars of blue, green, gray and
red, a briefing chart prepared
by the Defense Intelligence
Agency says what Gen. David
Petraeus won't.
Insurgent attacks against
Iraqi civilians, their security


forces and U.S. troops remain
high, according to the docu-
ment obtained by The
Associated Press. It is a conclu-
sion that the well-regarded
Army officer who is the top U.S.
commander in Iraq is expected
to try to counter when he and
Ryan Crocker, the U.S. ambas-
sador in Baghdad, testify before


Congress today and Tuesday.
More than four years into a
conflict initially thought to be a
cakewalk, the war has become a
battle of statistics, graphs and
conflicting assessments of
progress in a country of more
than 27 million people.
The defense intelligence
chart makes the point, with fig-
ures from Petraeus' command

Council members


attend conference


Inverness officials

praise event

Special to the Chronicle
,,All five Inverness City
Council recently attended the
Florida League of Cities annu-
al educational conference in
Orlando.
Council members volun-
teered to attend the Aug. 16 to
1 conference at the Orlando
:World Center Marriot. They
were joined by Mayor Bob
.plaisted, City Manager Frank
DiGiovanni and City Clerk
Debbie Davis.
.. The conference provided a
networkingg opportunity to
interact with city leaders and
planners to gain more skills
and knowledge toward improv-
ing government operations. It
was a new experience for sev-
eral recently elected council
members.
; Fred Ramlow, who was
unanimously picked by the
council June 5 to fill a council
vacancy, said he came away
with ideas that can help
improve the lives of local citi-
zens. He attended workshops
that dealt with such critical
issues as reclaimable water
usage and the future of proper-


ty taxes.
Ramlow said local concerns
must be known in Tallahassee.
"The local people's voices
have to be heard because we're
the ones closest to the people
in our city," he added.
Councilwoman Marti
Consuegra said she came away
with a greater understanding
of laws, management and how
she, as a woman, can be an
effective leader in the commu-
nity.
She added, "Strides are
being made to make sure that
the voices of the citizens of
Inverness are heard in
Tallahassee on taxes, insur-
ance and property values."
Jacquie Hepfer, elected last
November to serve the remain-
ing two years of a four-year
term for an open council seat,
also valued information on
reclaimed water, as well as dis-
cussions about county seats
and city revitalizations.
"The Inverness community
is greatly benefited when elect-
ed officials take time away
from work to voluntarily attend
a situation where they interact
with leaders of every corner of
the state," DiGiovanni said, "to
share ideas, discuss concerns,
and develop responsible solu-
tions to best position Inverness
for its future."

Judge: Truant kids'
parents could face jail
Parents of kids who habitually
skip school could find them-
selves locked up under an
aggressive plan to curb truancy
in this Florida Panhandle com-
munity.
Parents who ignore several
warnings and offers of help will
have to explain to a judge why
they shouldn't face jail time for
misdemeanor charges.
Escambia County school offi-
cials worked with Circuit Judge
Ross Goodman to toughen the
consequences.
"If the parent is not sending
the child to school, then I can
send the parent to jail,"
Goodman said.
Truancy, defined as 10 unex-
cused absences in 90 days, is a
misdemeanor. But Escambia
County school officials said it
rarely results in arrests.
The program will first focus on
elementary students because
the problems and learning
deficits are harder to overcome
,as the children get older.
School officials said 177 of
the district's roughly 40,000 stu-
dents already have missed at
least five days in the first two
weeks of school.

Miami

County officials trying to
account for missing art
Auditors are trying find out
why dozens of pieces of art are
missing from Miami-Dade
County's extensive collection.
The county collected more
than 700 pieces of notable
works over three decades to
display in courthouses, libraries
and other public buildings. The
program cost about $33 million.
A review found administrators
lost track of 87 pieces - includ-
ing works by Romare Bearden
and Robert Rauschenberg -
and that recordkeeping was
often inadequate. Other works
have deteriorated and there is
no money or plans to restore
them.
"Disappearance and neglect
was never a part of the vision of
the program," says Ruth Shack,
a former county commissioner
who helped set up the Art in
Public Places program in 1973.
Officials said many of the
missing pieces may have been
lost in 1993's Hurricane Andrew.
"We have it under control
now," said Cindi Nash, chair-
woman of the independent
Public Art Trust, which oversees
expenditures. "Whatever is
missing was missing a long time
ago, and things haven't gone
missing in a lot of years."

Noriega's


release


halted

Battle continues

over ex-leader's

extradition

Associated Press
MIAMI - Manuel Noriega's
drug racketeering prison sen-
tence ended Sunday, but the for-
mer Panamanian dictator
remained in the same institu-
tion he has called home the past
15 years awaiting the outcome
of a legal fight over his possible
extradition to France.
Noriega, 73, hopes to return
to Panama, where his lawyers
say he wants to live quietly and
has no interest in politics. But
the U.S and France want hirim
sent to Paris, where he would
face trial for allegedly launder*-
ing drug proceeds through
French banks.
The legal arena shifted
Friday to the 11th U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals in Atlanta
after Senior U.S. District Judge
William Hoeveler rejected 4
second attempt by Noreiga's
lawyers to block the extradition
They claim Noriega is entitled
to return to Panama because lie
was previously declared a pris-
oner of war by Hoeveler
Noriega's attorneys filed
notice of an expected appeal
with the Atlanta-based couit
and said Noriega will stay in tlhe
U.S. at a minimum-security
prison near Miami for the time
being. The appeals process
could take several weeks.
"The government has agreed
to keep General Noriega here
until all appeals are exhaust-
ed," said Noriega attorney
Frank Rubi no. "It's going to be a
slo%% and orderly process."
The final decision on the
French extradition request
rests ' with the State
Department, which has said it
will delay issuing an order until
Noriega's legal appeals are
exhausted. But officials left no
doubt that they expect Noriega
eventually to be flown to Paris.
"I would suspect that once
the legal barriers are removed
and the documentation is pre-
sented to us that you'll see some
pretty quick action on the
department's part," said deputy
State Department spokesman
Tom Casey on Friday.
Noriega was tried and con-
victed in 1992 on drug racket-
eering charges for essentially
allowing Panama to become a
transit point and money laun-
dering, center for Colbmbian
drug cartels.
Hoeveler declared him a
POW shortly after that because
Noriega was captured by U.S.
forces following a 1989 inva-
sion of Panama intended to
drive him from power.
Since then, Noriega -:pris-
oner No. 38699-079 - has
served his time in an apart-
mentlike cell in the Miami
prison, complete with exercise
equipment, television and tele-
phone. He's also been allowed
to wear his military uniform
and insignia, with the
International Committee of the
Red Cross monitoring his treat-
ment as required for POWs
under the Geneva
Conventions.
France has agreed to contin-
ue treating Noriega as a POW,
according to U.S. officials.

raping a teenage Floral City
girl at knifepoint. He received
life sentences in both cases, but
was re-sentenced in 1991.
His case is a complicated
one, filling six thick files at the
Citrus County Clerk of Circuit
Court The case is so old that
some of the files were on micro-
film and had to be copied to
paper.
Arnett has been re-sentenced
more than once, making his
case even more complex.
Assistant State Attorney Rich
Buxman responded in writing
to Arnett's motion to correct an
illegal sentence by explaining
Arnett's complicated history in
.a 15-page brief.
2 Buxman disagreed with
Arnett's claim that the sentence
was illegal, noting that Arnett is
not disputing the fact he com-
Imitted the crime of sexual bat-
tery while armed, a crime pun-
ishable by life in prison.
Buxman said because the
sentence does not exceed the
state maximum under 1983
guidelines, it cannot be consid-
ered an illegal sentence,
according to the Florida
Supreme Court.
"Defendant's motion should
be denied based on this argu-
ment alone," Buxman wrote.
This is Arnett's history in
brief.
On April 9, 1980, Arnett was
sentenced to 15 years in prison

represented by an attorney,
chose to receive a "non-guide-
lines sentence," according to
Buxman's brief. The judge gave
him life in prison for the 1984
rape case of the 15-year-old girl.
But Arnett said because of a
recent change in law, he is
aware that if he had chosen in
1991 to be sentenced under 1983
sentencing guidelines, a life
sentence would not have been
possible, unless
se is a the judge depart-
ed from the
cated guidelines and
imposed a harsh-
ing six er sentence. He
said the circum-
's at the stances resulted
in an illegal sen-
COunty tence.
iHe is claiming,
Circuit Buxman wrote,
irt. that had he
known better, he
would have not
have chosen the route that left
him open to a life sentence. But
Buxman said Arnett was repre-
sented by an attorney and was
specifically asked by the judge
if he wanted a guidelines or
non-guidelines sentence. Arnett
chose the non-guidelines sen-
tence.
Buxman said he believes
Arnett chose a non-guidelines
sentence because it gave him a
chance to be paroled at some
point, an option that would not
have been available to him if he
had chosen to be sentenced
under state guidelines.
The hearing is set for 9 a.m.
today.

Madeleine Stern, 95
SCHOLAR
Madeleine Stern, a rare book
dealer, writer and scholar who
uncovered a trove of Gothic
thrillers by Louisa May Alcott,
the author best known for her
wholesome domestic saga,
"Little Women," has died. She
was 95.
, Stern, who with her partner
Leona Rostenberg owned
Rostenberg & Stern Rare Books,
died Aug. 18 at her home in New
York City after a brief illness,
according to a statement by Eric
Holzenberg, director of the
Grolier Club for graphic arts in
New York City.
She got started in the business
in the mid-1940s after helping
launch Rostenberg's career in
rare books. Stern gave up a
teaching job and formed a part-
nership with Rostenberg in
1945. Four years later she
became a founding member of
the Antiquarian Booksellers
Association of America&
"Madeleine did more to fur-
ther the association and estab-
lish its prestige than anyone I
can think of," said Bernard M.
Rosenthal, a rare book dealer in
Berkeley, Calif, and a longtime
colleague of Stern. "She was very
dynamic; she got things done."
Stem's critically acclaimed
biography, "Louisa May Alcott"
was published in 1950. She went
on to edit or co-edit a number of
books on her subject including,
"Louisa May Alcott Unmasked:
Collected Thrillers," and 'The
Lost Stories of Louisa May
Alcott" both published in 1995.
Stern and Rostenberg were
co-authors of several memoirs,
including "Old & Rare, Thirty
Years in the Book Business"
(1974), "Old Books, Rare
Friends, Two Literary Sleuths
and Their Shared Passion"
(1997) and "Bookends, Two
Women, One Enduring
Friendship" (2001). They insist-
ed that they were not lesbians
and included a chapter in their
last memoir titled, "The Men We
Didn't Marry."
Stern has no immediate sur-
vivors.

Associated Press
Personnel confer in a room at the National Targeting Center of the Customs and Border Protection at an undisclosed location in the
Washington suburbs of Northern Virginia. Rejecting most criticisms, the government has decided to continue to subject every American
who travels abroad to a computerized risk assessment of whether he or she is a potential terrorist.

Only modest changes in computerized rating of travelers for terrorism potential


Associated Press

WASHINGTON - Rejecting a
wave of criticisms, the govern-
ment has agreed to only modest
changes in the computerized
system that assesses whether
each American who travels
abroad poses a terrorist threat
The Homeland Security
Department decided to keep the
risk assessments for 15 years
instead of 40 years and no longer
will share them with federal,
state and local officials who are
deciding whether a person gets a
job, a security clearance, a
license to do business or a gov-
ernment contract
Nevertheless, travelers still
will not be allowed to see their
actual assessments or the rea-
sons for them. Federal agents
still will be looking at an array of
information about international
travelers - Americans and for-
eigners; this includes even meal
choices, the names of traveling
companions and the number of
hotel beds requested.
"The revisions are useful, but
they don't go to the heart of the
matter," said James Dempsey,
policy director of the Center for
Democracy and Technology, a
civil liberties group. "Why
should the government keep
massive databases about people
it has decided are innocent?"
Privacy advocates and civil
libertarians also condemn the
remedies for people who believe
they were wrongly detained,
delayed or even denied the right
to travel.
The department's decision to
continue the Automated
Targeting System with few
changes took effect last
Thursday It was announced in
advance by an August notice in
the Federal Register, a daily cat-
alog of federal regulations that is
read mostly by lawyers and lob-
byists.
The computerized system is
used by Customs and Border
Protection officers to screen 400
million passengers a year who
arrive from or depart for foreign
locations by air, sea or rail. A sep-
arate part of the system is used
for vehicles crossing the border
Members of Congress, busi-
ness travel associations, privacy
and civil liberties groups and
even European legislators
protested after Homeland
Security disclosed details of the
system last fall for the first time;

it had gone in service in 1999.
Some critics said the entire
program was illegal; others
wanted parts of it changed.
But the department said the
system was crucial to preventing
terrorists and other criminal
from entering the United States,
and helps border officers decide
which travelers to pull aside for
further scrutiny.
The department acknowl-
edges the risk that "a negative
Customs and Border Protection
action could be taken" when
relying on "computer generated
information, in ATS that has
been skewed by inaccurate
data." But the department
emphasizes that it is agents who'
decide whether to release or
detain people after interviews.
'"ATS does not replace human
decision-making," said Hugo
Teufel III, , the department's
chief privacy officer
Program computers can com-
pare travel information -
known as Passenger Name
Records obtained from airlines,
cruise lines, and Amtrak - with
government watchlists of known
and suspected terrorists and
other wanted or barred individ-
uals.
Beyond that, Teufel said, the
system tries "to identify other
high risk travelers previously
unknown to law enforcement"
This is done by comparing the
passenger's data with a secret
list of "rules" - theories con-
ceived by department analysts
based on intelligence reports
and past terrorist attacks -
describing behavior that might
indicate someone is a terrorist
or other type of criminal.
The government will not
release these rules because that
would tip off terrorists and crim-
inals to what agents look for The

rules are believed to include
scenarios such as young men
without baggage on one-way
tickets paid in cash and with a
history of travel to Pakistan and
Afghanistan, where al-Qaida
trains.
A department report provides
this carefully selected example
of a risk assessment rule: "If an
individual sponsors more than
one fiancee for immigration at
the same time, there is likeli-
hood of immigration fraud."
Privacy advocate David Sobel,
counsel at Electronic Frontier
Foundation, said the rules "are
nothing more than the agency's
best guess about what behavior
might indicate a risk of terrorist
activity."
The passenger name records
contain the passenger's name
and usually address and tele-
phone number, but there is no
fixed standard. Most of the
records include payment data,
baggage information, seat
assignment and whether special
meals for Hindus, Muslims or
Jews were requested.
Ed Hasbrouck, a travel agent
and privacy advocate, said many
travel agents, including Expedia
or Travelocity online, can add to
those records the names of trav-
eling companions and hotel
reservations, including the num-
ber of rooms and beds request-


ed. A different section can
include remarks by the ticket
seller like "difficult customer -
always changing his mind,"
Hasbrouck said.
Some innocent decisions
could look suspicious. For
instance, bombers are thought to
prefer certain seats.
Homeland Security said only
'in exceptional circumstances"
does it use some terms in the
passenger name records that
indicate race, ethnic origin,
political or religious beliefs,
health conditions or sex life. The
department did not define those
circumstances.
Backing off a policy of keeping
risk assessments 40 years, the
department said it still needs to
keep them 15 years because
"potential terrorists may make
multiple visits to the United
States in advance of performing
an attack" Over time, "a poten-
tial risk becomes clearer."
After seven years, agents will
need high-level permission to
see the passenger name records
unless those records have been
associated with active lookouts,
investigations or travel "routes
of. concern," according to the
department

NUMBERS
Continued from Page 1A

in Baghdad, the Multinational
Force-Iraq. Congressional audi-
tors used the same numbers to
conclude that Iraqis are as
unsafe now as they were six
months ago; the Bush adminis-
tration and military officials
also using those figures say that
finding is flawed.
With so much depending on
how the statistics are collected
and interpreted, policymakers
in Washington are confused.
Rep. Ike Skelton, chairman
of the House Armed Services
Committee, summed up the sit-
uation during a hearing last
week oh the report by congres-
sional auditors at the
Government Accountability
Office.
"What is really going on?
What standards should we look
at? Where do we go from
here?" asked Skelton, D-Mo.
For every positive step, a
negative one follows.
Progress by the Iraqi army is
offset by the failures of the
national police, which an inde-
pendent assessment rates as
"operationally ineffective."
Nearly 77 percent of Iraqis
want the militias in Iraq to be
dissolved, according to the
GAO, yet their government has
not written legislation to do so.
While the rights of Iraq's
minority political parties are
protected in the legislature,
the GAO said violence against
minority religious and ethnic
groups continues "unabated"
in most areas of Iraq.
The report used the defense
intelligence's countrywide fig-
ures to conclude that the aver-
age number of daily attacks
against civilians has remained
"about the same" during the
past six months.
The auditors could not deter-
mine if sectarian violence had
declined since the start of the
president's troop increase.
The agency's findings are
contentious because the Bush
administration and military
officials in Iraq have said secu-
rity has improved over the
same period due to the addi-
tional 30,000 U.S. troops in
Baghdad and other trouble
spots.
In July, the White House, cit-
ing "trends data" from
Petraeus' command, said sec-
tarian violence, particularly in
Baghdad, had declined since
the troop increase began in
February.

opinion - a strong difference

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Rep. Ike Skelton, D-
Mo., speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington in this July 27 file photo.
"What is really going on? What standards should we look at?
Where do we go from here?" asked Skelton in a later hearing -
questioning which statistical analysis about Iraq to believe.


of opinion - as to whether or
not sectarian violence has
decreased," David Walker, who
heads the auditing agency, said
last week.
In a letter to his troops
Friday, Petraeus acknowledged
progress has been "uneven,"
but said sectarian violence has
fallen considerably The num-
ber of attacks across the coun-
try has declined in eight of the
past 11 weeks, he said. The let-
ter from Petraeus does not pro-
vide any figures.
According to the DIA chart,
there were 897 attacks against
Iraqi civilians in January and
808 in July. There were 946
attacks against Iraqi security
forces in January and 850 in
July
An attack is defined as a vio-
lent act that may or may not
produce casualties.
Coalition forces, . which
include more than 160,000 U.S.
troops, were attacked the most
Slightly more than 3,300
attacks were recorded in
January and 3,143 were report-
ed in July, the DIA said.
Charts from the
Multinational Corps-Iraq, the
war-fighting unit headed by
Army Lt. Gen. Raymond
Odierno, tell a different story
with bar graphs and arrows.
The charts contain no numbers
and they focus on Baghdad,
where the bulk of the addition-
al U.S. troops went.
The number of roadside
explosions in the Iraqi capital
dropped sharply between June
and the beginning of August,
according to one chart; so, too,
have monthly car bomb
attacks.

One chart shows a decline in
monthly casualties in Baghdad,
a trend that U.S. military offi-
cials attribute to the "diminish-
ing effectiveness on the part of
the enemy," according to the
chart.
Telephone and e-mail mes-
sages left with Odierno's unit
seeking more clarity about the
charts were not immediately
returned.
Critics say those gains
amount to "cherry-picking" the
most favorable data. But U.S.
officials, including the head of
U.S. Central Command, which
oversees military operations in
the Middle East and Central
Asia, cite the gains as evidence
Iraq is moving in the right
direction.
"In the less than six months
I've been in this job, I have
seen a substantial change and
it gives me some significant
optimism that this place may
just. work out the way we had
envisioned, or some had envi-
sioned, when the tasks were
undertaken," Adm. William
Fallon told the Commonwealth
Club of California, a public
affairs forum, last week.
Fallon took over in March as
head of the command.


Gordon Adams, a former
Clinton administration official
who specializes in defense
issues, said all the statistics
coming from Iraq need to be
questioned.
"When you really care about
something, you're really tempt-
ed to use the numbers that look
best to you," said Adams, a pro-
fessor at American University's
School of International
Service.
Adams drew a parallel to
Vietnam, when body counts
became a measure of success.
"There have been too many
claims of victory. Too many
claims of progress. No one
trusts it anymore," he said.
An independent panel led by
former Marine Corps Gen.
James Jones found much to
criticize in a report it released
last week.
Jones and other retired mili-
tary and law enforcement offi-
cials concluded that Iraqi secu-
rity forces would be unable to
take control of their country in
the next 18 months.
Among the shortcomings are
a national police force that is
so flawed it should be disband-
ed and reorganized, and a cor-
rupt border patrol that leaves
Iraq's boundaries "porous and
poorly defended."
The tension and violence is
"fed by the slow and disap-
pointing pace" of political rec-
onciliation, according to the 20-
member panel, which spent
three weeks in Iraq.
Nonetheless, they said there
are "signs of encouraging tacti-
cal success" in and around
Baghdad.
Michael Heidingsfield, a
member of the panel, said he
does not expect Petraeus to tell
Congress he is satisfied with
the current level of violence in
Baghdad. It is, however, lower
than it has been since 2004 due
to the infusion of troops,
Heidingsfield said.
"That process works," said
Heidingsfield, who spent 14
months in Iraq as a police
adviser. "The challenge is, can
you sustain it?"

Body found likely


missing student,


authorities say


Associated Press

PROVO, Utah - A woman's
body believed to be missing
Brigham Young University stu-
dent Camille Cleverley was
found Sunday, authorities said.
The body was found in Provo
Canyon, said sheriff's
spokesman Sgt. Spencer
Cannon. Authorities were try-
ing to confirm the woman's
identity, but Cannon said inves-
tigators believed it was
Cleverley, a 22-year-old senior
from Boise, Idaho.
Cleverley was last seen Aug.
30, and her mountain bike also
was gone. Authorities had been
searching mountain trails and
the Provo River for her, believ-
ing she may have parked her
bike and hiked one of the many
trails leading into the Wasatch
Mountains.


Her bike was turned in by
two people who admitted they
had snatched it after finding it
locked to a rack at Bridal Veil
Falls along the Provo River,
officials have said. The area is
popular for hiking, but can also
be treacherous with sheer
drop-offs of hundreds of feet.
Cleverly's debit card was
used the day after she van-
ished to buy doughnuts and
fruit drinks at a Provo store.
Police have said the buyer was
a young woman but they could-
n't confirm it was Cleverley.
Police gave her boyfriend a
lie-detector test, which he vol-
unteered to take and passed,
although an FBI regional
supervisor was to review the
polygraph results.
Provo, home to BYU, is
about 40 miles south of Salt
Lake City.

Wing winner
BUFFALO, N.Y. -When it
comes to wolfing wings, Sonya
Thomas is a wiz.
The 105-pound competitive
eater known as "The Black Widow"
bested a dozen beefy rivals Sept.
1, scarfing 173 wings in 12 minutes
to win the wing-eating contest at
'the National Buffalo Wing Festival.
"That's 5.17 pounds of wings,"
said Brian Kahle, spokesman for
the annual Labor Day weekend
event in the city where Buffalo
wings were born.
Thomas, 40, of Alexandria, Va.,
also held the festival's previous
record of 161 wings in 12 minutes,
set in 2004.
"She's the crowd favorite," Kahle
said. "It was 12 huge guys and
her."
Thomas has set numerous rec-
ords in competitive eating events,
including 37 hot dogs in 12 min-
utes; 35 bratwursts in 10 minutes;
11 pounds of cheesecake in 9 min-
utes; 44 lobsters in 12 minutes;
and 250 Tater Tots in 5 minutes.
She is ranked No. 5 by the
International Federation of Com-
petitive Eating. According to the
federation's Web site, No. 1-ranked
Joey Chestnut holds the 12-minute
record for chicken wings, downing
7.5 pounds of them May 21.
Cat extortion
NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. -A
man has been charged with extort-
ing more than $20,000 from his el-
derly mother by repeatedly threat-
ening to kidnap her beloved cat and
demanding ransom, police said.
Garry Lamar, 47, was arrested
Aug. 31 and released on $200 bail.
He has been ordered to stay away
from his 78-year-old mother, Mary
Lamar Grancher.
He started threatening to kidnap
the cat just over a year ago, after
his mother kicked him out of her
home, accusing him of abuse,

"This isn't just a family cat,"
Ormond said. "She actually called
this cat her companion since she
lived alone."
Rolling roadblock
BIGGS, Ore. - Three commer-
cial truck drivers put on the brakes
to help police stop a man who led
authorities on a high-speed chase
for more than 50 miles.
The truckers pulled alongside
each other and slowed to about 5
mph, forming a rolling roadblock.
The fleeing driver stopped and fled
on foot but was quickly captured,
authorities said.
Trucker Edwin Beach said he
heard police radio traffic and said,


"OK, where's the high-speed chase
at?" He coordinated with two other
drivers over CB and placed his
truck in the middle on Interstate 84.
The chase began Sept. 1 near
Boardman and ended near the
John Day Dam on the Columbia
River about 100 miles east of
Portland, police said. Speeds dur-
ing the chase exceeded 100 mph.
The fleeing car had been report-
ed to have been involved in a hit-
and-run.
Castle quarrel
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.- The
man who currently holds the
world's record for the tallest sand
castle is pouring cold sea water on
Myrtle Beach's attempt to dethrone


him.
Ed Jarrett, from Casco, Maine,
said the 43-foot castle built in June
in Myrtle Beach failed to follow
Guinness World Records guide-
lines that ban using machinery and
require the structure to be taller
than it is wide.
"Myrtle Beach doesn't meet the
criteria," Jarrett said. "You can't just
pile up a bunch of sand, build a
small castle on top of that pile, and
call it a record."
He said his nearly 32-foot tall
castle, completed last weekend in
Maine, should be the new record
holder.
Myrtle Beach officials had per-
mission from Guinness to stray
from the guidelines, said Holly
McMillan, a spokeswoman for the
Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of
Commerce.
"It's unsafe to have a structure
that tall without a base to support
it, and Guinness recognized that,"
McMillan said. "We also told Guin-
ness that the city would not allow
us to hand deliver the sand, and
they said it would be OK to use
machinery to bring the sand castle
in."
The Guinness organization has-
n't yet decided whether the Myrtle
Beach castle should be considered
an official record.
For Jarrett, the world record is a
personal crusade. His 29-foot cas-
tle is the current record holder and
he spent about two months build-
ing the 32-foot tall castle with the
help of 1,500 volunteers to raise
money for a retreat for children
with life-threatening illnesses.

Exacting donors reshape giving Some college gifts


Geri Cecil loved Randolph-Macon
Woman's College from the moment she
met people on the Lynchburg, Va., campus,
and every year after she graduated in 1968
she gave the school money She believed in
its system of education, made lifelong
friends, even served on the board of
trustees for several years.
That's all over now.
Last year, Cecil felt blindsided by a
major change at the college: plans to
admit men. She said she didn't hear of the
proposal until shortly before it was
approved and saw alumnae such as her-
self stonewalled when they objected. So
she stopped donating-- forever, she said.
When she drives by campus, Cecil, a
boarding-school teacher who still lives in
Lynchburg, tries not to look. It feels like
she has lost a close friend, she said.
"I certainly have learned one thing,"
Cecil said. "I will never make an unre-
stricted pledge to anyone, ever again."
Cecil is part of a new generation of col-
lege donors - savvy, activist and willing to
stop giving if they don't like the way their
money is being used.
Donating "has become a much more
engaged process," said Stephen Joel
Trachtenberg, who just stepped down
from his long presidency at George
Washington University. "Increasingly, peo-
ple have points of view. The put-the-
money-on-the-stump-and-run benefactors
of earlier days are diminishing."
Alumni now are far more likely to give to
specific projects rather than the operating
funds that keep universities running and
to expect detailed reports on how the
money is spent.
Some ask to meet the students who win
the scholarships, select the professors;
who get the chair, scrutinize financial
reports, weigh competing construction
bids, choose the paintings for the gallery
walls.


an unrestricted pledge to
anyone, ever again.

Gern t.:-: ,a
former donor to Randolph-Macon Woman's
College in Lynchburg, Va.
And if the donors are dead, their heirs
are intervening in how the money is spent,
said Joe Bull, who recently stepped down
as director of planned giving at Ohio State
University.
"That's a wave that is coming and com-
ing fast. I think in general we're a much
more distrusting society than we used to
be - and some of these gifts are so large,
they should be scrutinized."
One closely watched case that sends
chills down administrators' spines is play-
ing out at Princeton University, where
school officials have spent years tussling
with donors' heirs over a fund that has
grown to more than $840 million.
The Robertson Foundation started in
1961 with $35 million of stock in the A&P
supermarket company given to the
Woodrow Wilson School of Public and
International Affairs - at the time, one of
the largest gifts ever to higher education.
Marie Robertson was clear about her
intent: "to establish ... a Graduate School,
where men and women dedicated to pub-
lic service may prepare themselves for
careers in government service," particu-
larly international relations. They set up a
foundation to administer the gift and gave
three of seven seats on the board to family
members.
Five years ago, several Robertson fami-
ly members filed suit, pointing out that
very few Wilson graduates were going into,
government service, and seeking to sever
the foundation's relationship with
Princeton.
During the years of the lawsuit, they


SUSAN KINZIE
The Washington Post I will never make


turn (JL futl Ltoi) L


have claimed that Princeton has improp-
erly spent more than $207 million and has
hidden spending from family members
and that between 1990 and 2003, only
about 10 percent of the graduates funded
by the foundation went into international
affairs jobs with the federal government.
The Robertsons say the money should
go to other institutions that do a better job
of sending people into government. *
Princeton has so far failed to get the suit
dismissed, and this spring it repaid nearly
$800,000 to the foundation, money it said
had been used for graduate students in
departments related to, but outside of, the
Wilson school.
The university has portrayed the battle
as being about academic freedom, arguing
that the plaintiffs want to limit the Wilson
school to a kind of vocational program for
a few federal agencies.
As years have passed and legal fees
have mounted, unusually sharp language
has erupted on both sides. "This case is
about the descendants of a donor trying,
46 years after a gift was made, to seize con-
trol of funds that their parents chose to
give to Princeton and not to them," said
Princeton spokeswoman Cass Cliatt.
Meanwhile, family spokesman Bill
Robertson, a Princeton graduate like his
father, described administrators of his
alma mater as "really no better than your
typical con artist."
He says evidence shows Princeton
"intended to disregard my parents' wishes
all along."
Cliatt said Princeton has a long history
of honoring donors' wishes. Yet some of
the arguments made by its attorneys have
drawn attention.
The Robertson case "is being watched
by institutions with grave concern," said
Sheldon Steinbach, a lawyer specializing
in higher education. 'An adverse determi-
nation could lead to litigation by a variety
of donors across the nation."
It's also being watched by prospective
donors.

The Washington Post
Sometimes, it's the donor
who lets the school down
rather than the other way
around. Schools have chipped
donors' names off buildings
after a conviction or a scandal.
This summer, Roger
Williams University in Rhode
Island renamed its law school,
dropping a donor's name after
he made a racist comment at a
board meeting.
At the University of Missouri
at Columbia, the Kenneth L.
Lay Chair in Economics,
named after the Enron execu-
tive, is still open.
Some schools are wary of
gifts such as antiques and col-
lections that could become a
burden to maintain, especially
years down the road.
Tulane University in New
Orleans is facing a lawsuit over
a wooden sailboat, donated
along with cash in 1956 by
Albert Baldwin Wood, an alum-
nus who invented the pump
system that drains New
Orleans; he died on board.
The money was unrestricted,
but the gift stipulated that the
boat be maintained and dis-
played on campus.
His heirs claim that it was
neglected - which the school
denies - and they are asking
Tulane to return both the boat
and the cash.

Then there are gifts that are
just a little weird. Land that
needs environmental cleanup,
decaying buildings in rundown
neighborhoods, art that isn't
quite what the donor said it
was.
At George Washington
University, former President
Stephen Joel Trachtenberg
said, administrators have at
times asked, "Oh boy, do we
want to be associated with
that?"
Such as the offer of a pet
cemetery. His initial reaction
was no.
"Then a year or two goes by,
and I read of other universities
which have built cemeteries
adjacent to campus for bene-
factors and alumni who want to
spend their eternity back on
campus."
He visited the site. "It's a
very interesting pet cemetery.
It's got J. Edgar Hoover's dog
and ..." He sounds wistful.
"You can imagine a lot of
people in Washington, alumni,
who have pets they're fond of,
would want to inter their pet. If

Ultimately, Trachtenberg

Digital Home Advantage by Echostar available now!!!
A new cable service is now available to all Florida residents and its called {Digital Home Advantage} by Echostar
Corporation. The announcement at Echostar's Team Summit in Dallas, Texas May 3rd, 2007 was well received by all
attendees and stockholders. Echostar's executives made it known that Digital Home Advantage will continue to offer
consumers the lowest cost digital service pay TV service well into the future and wants to expand its service in the Florida
markets. With 15 satellites and 13 million customers nation wide no other provider has the capacity to offer consumers the
choice of high quality pay TV service at such low prices.


The world of communications is changing at an alarming rate and cable prices keep rising. With satellite to home
transmissions now available to Florida residents there is no longer the need to depend on cable companies that have over
priced service.

current providers. For as little as $24.99 per month customers can get a great selection of channels like A&E, ABC Family,

SCI FI Channel, Spike T/V, The Travel Channel, TBN, TBS Atlanta, The Learning Channel, TV Land, USA Network,
QVC, The Weather channel (now with live radar for any zip code in the US) and many other great channels including 30
wonderful music channels. Also the most watched local channels like ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, CW, UPN, PBS, and others
are included. Over 100 channels for about a dollar a day.


BUT WAIT IT GETS EVEN BETTER
For about a $11.00 upgrade a consumer can double the pleasure to 200 channels. Check out what's on Americas Movie
Classics, Animal Planet, BBC America, Bravo, Court T/V, Discovery Health, ESPN CLASSIC, The Fox News Network,
FX, Fox Florida, Hallmark, Independent Film Channel, Military/Wings Channel, Noggin, Oxygen, SOAPnet, Speed
Channel, Sun Sports, Turner Classic Movies, Women's Entertainment, WGN and more.

equipment to buy or maintain and you can lower your bill by referring your friends and neighbors.

Arabic and German are just a few of the foreign language channels available.

Taxpayer's money
The Federal Reserve (Fed)
pumped $62 billion into the
financial markets the second
week of August. The money
was used for repurchase
agreements reposs), a transac-
tion in which the Fed buys
securities from the dealers
who agree to buy them back in
a few days. The beneficiaries
are the dealers' clients.
The "Plunge Protection
Team" (a term coined in a
1997 Washington Post article
by reporter Brett Fromson),
comprising key government
agencies, stock exchange and
large Wall Street firms, was a
group formed supposedly in
the prevention of destabilizing
stock market decline.
In the 1970s, prior to taking
the oath of office as supervisor
and chief financial officer of
an upstate New York munici-
pality, I did extensive research.
in the financial markets.
Our municipality had $2.5
million in checking accounts,
a procedure that was not ben-
eficial to the taxpayers.. I rec-
ommended to our governing
board the three banks that
would work with our munici-
pality to help implement
sound financial policies; the
recommendation was
approved.
Municipal employees were
paid bimonthly; working with
our comptroller, we formulat-
ed a plan whereby employees
were paid on schedule and
creditors on a different date .,
within 30 days of the obliga-
tion, withdrawing funds from
the interest bearing accounts
only as needed. Certificates of
deposit were used for longer-
term investments, repurchase
agreements reposs), which
paid slightly less interest than
a CD, for shorter term. A one-
month financial obligation was
maintained in a savings
account. This permitted main-
taining minimum funds


deposited in checking
accounts.
Repos can be a high-risk
transaction if safeguards are
not implemented. To safe-
guard our municipality, we
required the banks to secure
our investment with govern-
ment bonds. When one bank
informed us they would not
continue to secure our repos,
we stopped doing business
with that bank.
This raises a very interest-
ing question about the $62 bil-
lion that the Fed pumped in
the financial markets to be
used for repurchase agree-
ments. If there is a failure on
Wall Street and the dealers
cannot buy back the repos,
how will the Fed recover the
funds? Only one place, the tax-
payers.

Chief's duties
Re: Ms. Day's letter,
"Treasonous presidency," Aug
28.
Congrats to Marilyn Day for
getting it right that the presi-
dent's power is to protect the
Constitution, not from all ene-
mies. However, there is much
room as to what the duties of
Commander-in-Chief are and
what his or her responsibility
would be versus Congress. The
War Powers Resolution leaves
room to argue one way or the
other
I also congratulate Day for
her soothsayer abilities in her
comment: "Had we not invad-
ed Iraq, Iraq would have exist-
ed just as it had been - no
danger to us or neighboring
countries." Maybe she could
sell that trash to Kuwait. Her
prophetic powers continued in
her statement, "that we would
have stabilized Afghanistan
and captured Osama bin
Laden."
Maybe she should talk to
Bill Clinton about Osama. And


' :' :'" " " " " " "."19


that she believes what
Saddam's son-in-law said only
goes to prove that she is still
writing half-truths or fabrica-
tions. Shame! Shame!

Churning the muck
I myself use an ATV and
have run from Gospel Island
to Turner Camp using the
existing airboat trails. Four
years ago, I took a group of
SWFWMD wetland biologists
on a tour using the same trails.
We drove 4x4s! It was astound-
ing to witness a transforma-
tion of wetland species give
way to upland plants and ani-
mals.
I live on a dry canal and
welcome the ATV riders. They
blazed trails through forests of
dog fennel, a prolific noxious
weed that will thrive until the
water returns. There they will
stand as ugly dead stems cre-
ating a navigational nightmare
and ultimately create more
muck! The ATVs churn the
muck and expose it to aerobic
processes that ultimately con-
sume muck!
If people took notice, they


would have found a healthy
population of yellow flies
these past two years. Muck is
the breeding ground for those
bloodsuckers!
Let the ATVs ride and enjoy
the outdoors. There is no last-
ing harm. A tropical storm
will change the existing use
and give rise to airboats and
the whiners will scream and
shout once again.

Local focus
While I was as horrified as
everyone else to learn of the
poor conditions of our nation's
bridges, I think the people
who criticized the Chronicle
for not carrying it on the front
page were slightly out of line.
I especially have a problem
with people who are upset
that the Chronicle, a local
newspaper, places so much
emphasis on Citrus County
news. That happens to be the


Letters to the EDITOR


major reason I subscribe to
the Chronicle. It's important to
be informed of what is going
on close to home due to the
fact that local politics, taxes,
crime and weather forecasts
are really what affect every-
day life, no matter what county
one lives in.
I feel there was plenty of
coverage regarding the bridge
collapse, including the fact
that there are hundreds of
bridges that should have been
repaired or replaced years
ago, via television and the
Internet.
People who simply must
have a daily fix of all the blood
and gore associated with all
disasters, worldwide, and
expect to be able to indulge
their addiction to other peo-
ple's misery, should be able to
get enough without expecting
the Chronicle, or any other
local newspaper, to keep it on
the front page.
As for those of us out here
concerned with what effects
us in our real day-to-day lives,
I say keep up the good work by
keeping all the local news in
the Chronicle. Thank you.

Bus service
We spent an enlightening
few hours at the county com-
missioners meeting Aug. 17.
We wish a lot of Citrus County
voters would do the same.
This was about the bus serv-
ice, or lack thereof. They final-
ly appointed a committee to
report back on Nov. 2. There
were several people complain-
ing, as we were, that they
could not get service or had
been put off. We were told

ical calls primarily
There are five senior cen-
ters that are supported by the
county that offer available
computers, entertainment,
games and other programs.
Food also is supplied every
day for these people at a nomi-
nal fee, but they cannot get
there unless they have a ride.
What is wrong with this
county? Citrus County is grow-
ing and the bus service should
grow with it, not lie down and
die. I was appalled when
someone said, "This is a pub-
lic service," and the comment
was made, "No this is a busi-
ness." Then it should be run
as a business, and we voters of
Citrus County should get
behind it and see that they do
their job.
I am a resident of a nursing
home, and in the past we had
always had good bus service
and it is still desperately need-
ed.

Sound OFF


Gap in new road
I don't know if I should be
calling county commissioners
regarding this, but they just
paved, I guess, U.S. 19 in front
of Homosassa, in front of
Publix in Homosassa. When you
cross the highway, there's a very
big lip where you're going up
Halls River Road, and it's just
tearing our tires apart. It's like a
5-inch gap that nobody has
bothered to mend. You'd think
any person driving across there
would feel that and know to file
a little bit more out to cushion
the blow of the tires. I'm sur-
prised it hasn't been fixed up 'til
now. It's been at least eight or
nine days and I was just won-
dering if somebody could look
into fixing that bump at Halls
River Road and U.S. 19.
Glorified pond
Wow, another article in print
about the glorified retention
pond called Cooter Pond. Just .
who is it who considers it to be
the crown jewel of Inverness or
the gateway to Inverness? Cer-
tainly not the residents or the
visitors to Inverness, that's for
sure. Lake Tsala Apopka is
what brings people here and
keeps people here. That's a
fact. But they ignore the big
lake as if it doesn't exist. The
sinkholes in Morrison Pool keep
draining the lake water.
Nothing is done, Why? Because
of Cooter Pond, that's why. If
they used the money they
spent on boardwalks, landscap-.
ing and weed removal in Cooter
Pond on repairing the sinkholes
in Morrison pond permanently,
they'd have enough money left
over to fill Morrison pond with
bottled spring water. Wake up
to reality. We all care about our
lake system, not an irrelevant
retention pond.

to have cleanup on our road,
OK? Two years ago, when we
first had the first hurricane, my
lines were hanging from my
cable and from my telephone. I
have called them 20 times. The
line is still hanging and the
cable is still hanging. What is
wrong with this picture? We
have to pay the taxes. We pay
the taxes, but who does the
work? And if they're not going
to work, then get somebody
else to do it for them.
Eatery closed
This is in response to the
"What happened" Sound Off in
(a recent) paper. Due to irrec-
oncilable differences, Nicole's
Fine Dining had to close its
doors. I would like to thank my
customers for their loyalty and
was flattered by the inquiry.
Maybe Nicole's will resurface in
the future. Thanks again.
Just as powerless
You don't live in Sugarmill
Woods, but you need power.
Three weeks ago on two con-
secutive Fridays, our power was
out from 8 'til midnight. We
had no storms or even the po-
tential of one. Only approxi-
mately 40 to 50 homes were
blacked out. So your problem
is what?
Highest points
I hate to dispute the editor
who thought the highest eleva-
tion iri the county was 90 .feet
over in Pine Ridge. My own
house here in Kensington
Estates sits at 130 feet, and
the topography map shows
nearby elevations up to 155
feet. I've heard from several
people over the years that the
water tower over at Beverly
Hills sits on the third highest
elevation in the state. However,
I couldn't Google the confirma-
tion on that.

Hurricane experts
Since I've lived in Florida, the
so-called hurricane experts
always forecast an active hurri-
cane season and are always
wrong. Their forecasts scare
people who might consider liv-
ing here and the people who
already do, unnecessarily.
People should be prepared and
there is always plenty of time
to get ready as the hurricane
slowly makes its way from
Africa to wherever. Since weath-
ermen can't -predict the track
of a known storm perfectly,
how can they come up with a
forecasted number and then
when they are wrong, claim
they were more accurate than
"last year"? They may own
stock in plywood or generator
companies. Ha, ha.

What's the buzz?
I'd like to know if someone
could please find out whatever
happened to mosquito control.
There's no one coming around
for several years in downtown
Inverness, and the mosquitoes
are just terrible. Do they have to
wait for people to start getting
sick before they do something?
Also, Inverness is getting so
dirty. It used to be the cleanest
town around Central Florida. It
was so beautiful and now you
can't even go for a walk. There's
broken beer bottles and shat-
tered glass and garbage all over
the place. It's terrible. How
about getting some kind of a
campaign going to clean up our
beautiful city?

No 9/11 tribute? Is this true?
It has come to my attention (a
funeral home) will not be host-
ing a 9/11 tribute this year.
The 9/11 tribute not only re-
members those who lost their
lives in the World Trade Center,
Pentagon and those on the
planes, but those rescuers who
continue to die from lung dis-
eases from our World Trade
Center fallout, and our boys

Croft property
Toward the end of Wooten's
term in office, the county com-
missioners released informa-
tion about property being pur-

want to find Citrus County. Just
drive north through Hernando

Glass-top stoves
In Thursday, Sept. 6's paper,
you have a delicious recipe for
skillet cakes, and I know it
makes a difference if you cook
it in a cast-iron skillet because
it does taste better and the
sugar browns better. But peo-
ple with glass-top stoves can't
use an iron skillet, so that
recipe is completely worthless
to a lot of people.

SThe,.most efficient and effec-
tive way to make a charitable
contribution in Citrus County is
through the local United Way
organization.

thousands of area 527 889-

theory behind or pa, tici
United Way is that your emn-p
the nonprofit agen- pay.rill di

spend all of their
time trying to raise money. The
agencies need to provide servic-
es to people in need. If they
�pend all their volunteer time
put searching for money, it's the
people in need who end up suf-
fering.
' United Way manages to have
access to the tens of thousands of
employees at most of the caring,
companies in our community
and asks employees to use pay-"
roll deductions to help support
those in need. Those efforts
raised more 'than $600',000 in
contributions last year.
'While many businesses make
direct contributions of their

is profiting from this ... M

Who's the victim?
I would like to know why
people who call animal
control are made the vic-
tims. I have a pit bull run-
ning loose in my neighbor-
hood. He's harassing my
cats that are in a fenced-in
yard.
They will not take a com-
plaint unless you give
them your name, address,
phone number, etc., which
is then made available to
the public, and then who-
ever you made the com-
plaint on can harass you.
Who's the victim here?


Save water
I think it's about time to close
these golf courses around here and
some of these car washes. They
take an awful lot of water. It's time
to save our water. Let's close some
of them.


Sept. 11: Six years later ...


S ept. 11 falls on a
Tuesday this year. It
will be the first time
since that other Sept. 11, six
years ago.
Do you remember? Can
you recall how difficult it
was to even conceive of
going forward from that
moment? The events of that
day had, so thoroughly lac-
erated us that it seemed as Leonar
if, in some small corner-of . OT"r
our collective soul, the V-1i
clock had stopped. In that
corner, it would forever be
8:46 EDT on the morning of
September 11, 2001.
Do you remember? If so, then the
world as it stands six years later must
come as something of a shock.
Six years ago, we saw people rush-
ing to the World Trade Center site to
search for survivors and recover bod-
ies. Heroes, we said. Six years later,
largely removed from public attention,
many of those same heroes are sick
and even dying, poisoned by the soot
and dirt they breathed.
Six years ago, appalled and infuriat-
ed, the world rallied to our side.
Candles and cards were left at our
eembass-ies The French newspaper Le'.
Monde declared "We Are All
Americans Now." The Masai, a tribe in
rural Kenya, sent us 14 cows, a gift
regarded by their culture as sacred.
Six years later, angry demonstrators
trail our president wherever he trav-
els; and it is headline news when he is
actually cheered in Albania.


Thanks for help
I would like top take this opportuni-
ty to thank the following organizations
and businesses for their participation
in the recent Predator Awareness
Expo that was held June 16.
If not for their help, the day would
not have been possible: Antonelli
Martial Arts, CASA, Citrus County
School Board, Citrus County Sheriff's
Office, Dignity Memorial Escape
School, FDLE, Global Radio, Girl
Scouts Heart of Florida, Head Start,
Isaiah's Place, Jessie's Place, KIDS
Foundation, National Center for
Missing and Exploited Children, rad
KIDS, Chuck Everidge State Farm,
and Mr. Winn Webb.
Also Terri's Taxi, Buddy's Home
Furnishings, Donut Town, WOW 104.3,
Bay News 9, American Speedy
Printing, All About Promotions,
Extreme Fun, Publix and the IR-RU
Social Club of Floral City. Special
thanks to Mr. Mark Lunsford and the
Jessica Marie Lunsford Foundation:
I appreciate everyone's assistance
in making this day a rewarding expe-
rience, as well as a resource for all
that attended.

Gabrielle washed ashore and crawled
slowly along the North Carolina's
Outer Banks Sunday, but caused few
problems and failed even to chase
vacationers away from the beach.
Warnings of gusty wind and rain did-
n't stop Derek Creekmore, 32, who
with surfing buddy Mark Carter drove
to Cape Hatteras from Chesapeake,
Va., to ride the tall, breaking waves
brought in by the storm.
"It's a lot rougher out there, but this
is what we look forward to every year,"
Creekmore said. "We plan to stay out
here until we get tired."
Officials said that there had been no
requests for assistance, and that
Gabrielle likely would be remembered
mostly as an inconvenience.
"We'll be glad to help out if anybody
needs it, but right now, we're not hear-
ing anything. It's been kind of quiet,"
said Julia Jarema, a spokeswoman for
the state Department of Crime Control
and Public Safety.
Gabrielle brought gusty winds that
howled at 50 mph, churning up the
Atlantic surf to the delight of surfers
and kiteboarders. Despite that, the
storm failed to dump much rain
inland, where much of North Carolina
is experiencing severe drought
"We're glad we didn't have any flood-
ing or wind damage, but the rain
would have been nice," Jarema said.
"The coast got some rain, but they
were the ones with the least problems
from the drought."
At 5 p.m., the center ofthe storm was
about 30 miles southwest of Kill Devil
Hills, headed north near 12 mph. Its
maximum sustained winds were close
to 50 mph, with stronger gusts, and it
was expected to weaken slightly in the
next 12 hours.
Forecasters expected it to pass over
the Outer Banks near Nags Head on
Sunday night on its way back out to
sea.
Forecasters kept a tropical storm


nations.
Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari
said bordering countries had been slow
to fulfill promises to stem the flow of
fighters and weapons into Iraq.
"There is movement but it has not
reached the level we want or hope." he
said.
He urged Syria and Jordan to ease
restrictions on Iraqis trying to enter
those countries.
"Iraq's failure means the failure of
the whole region and no one, in my
opinion, will win as a result of this,"
Zebari warned. "What is happening in
Iraq and what will happen in Iraq will
decide the future of this region."
The conference occurred a day
before congressional hearings were to
begin in Washington with the U.S.


Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker and
top commander Gen. David Petraeus to
deliver reports on Iraq's progress amid
a debate over calls to start bringing
American troops home.
The two are expected to point to
.some improvements in security since
this year's troop buildup but say that
progress toward power-sharing agree-
ments among Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds
has lagged.
Government spokesman Ali al-
Dabbagh said Iraqi security forces have
come far but need more time 'to prepare
before they can take over their own
security. He pointed to a decrease in
the number of kidnapping and other
sectarian attacks but gave no figures.
"We feel that there is progress on the
security side, particularly in Baghdad,"


he said. When things get better and the
security situation gets better the Iraqi
government will be able to talk about a
timetable," al-Dabbagh told reporters.
The U.S. military, meanwhile, report-
ed that an American soldier was killed
Sunday in fighting in western Baghdad.'
A Marine died Friday in Iraq's Anbar,
province in a non-combat related inci-!
dent, the command said.
At least 35 Iraqis also were reported
killed or found dead on Sunday, includ-
ing 12 bullet-riddled bodies that were
handcuffed Aind blindfolded and
showed signs of torture.
The deadliest attack was a raid by
gunmen against a police station that
killed at least nine people in the pre-
dominantly Sunni village of Hajaj,
some 155 miles north of Baghdad.

Waves crash against the Oceanna Pier at Atlantic Beach on Sunday as Tropical Storm Gabrielle makes landfall in Atlantic
Beach, N.C. Gabrielle made landfall on North Carolina's Outer Banks, packing 50 mph winds and rain, but it wasn't enough
of a threat to scare vacationers from the shore and surfers from the beach.

Officials preached caution through-
out the day as Gabrielle moved
through the vacation hotspot They
closed campgrounds on the Cape
Hatteras National Seashore and put
swift water rescue teams and National
Guard units on standby. But no one
was ordered to evacuate, and officials


said the greatest danger was posed by
rip ciiirents threatening swimmers
who ventured into the ocean.
"We had heavy surf, but you could
tell from looking at it the currents
were strong." said Dare County
spokes% oman Dorothy Toolan.
"People took the advice and stayed out
of it today."
Officials in Dare, Hyde and
Currituck counties, which cover most
of the Outer Banks, said Sunday they
had no reports of any water rescues
tied to Gabrielle.
While some spots did get some
decent rain - nearly 5 inches in
Harlow in rural Carteret County, and
about an inch in nearbyNew Bern and
Beaufort - the storm was mostly a
tease.
Gabrielle spun into the storm late
Friday after wandering in the Atlantic
for several days, caught along an old
frontal boundary that stalled about
midway between the Southeast coast
and Bermuda. Forecasters first
labeled it a subtropical storm - a
hybrid system that takes power from
warm ocean waters but also forms
from warm and cold fronts colliding-
before classifying it a tropical system.

Reconstituted al-Qaida proves an elusive foe


The Washington Post
PESHAWAR, Pakistan - When
Osama bin Laden resurfaced Friday in
a 26-minute videotaped speech, his
most important message was one left
unsaid: We have survived.
The last time bin Laden showed his
face to the world was three years ago, in
October 2004. Since then, al-Qaida's
core leadership - dubbed al-Qaida
Central by intelligence analysts - has
grown stronger, rebuilding the organi-
zational framework that was badly
damaged after the U.S.-led invasion of
Afghanistan, according to counterter-
rorism officials in Pakistan, the United
States and Europe.
It.has accomplished this revival, the
officials said in interviews, by drawing
on lessons learned during 15 years of
failed campaigns to destroy it In that
period, bin Laden and his followers
have outfoxed powerful enemies from
the Soviet army to the Saudi royal fam-
ily to the CIA.


Dodging the U.S. military in
Afghanistan after the Sept 11,
2001, attacks, al-Qaida Central
reconstituted itself across the
Pakistani border, returning to
the rugged tribal areas sur-
rounding the organization's
birthplace, the dusty frontier
city of Peshawar.
In the first few years,
Pakistani and U.S. authorities
captured many senior leaders;
in the past 18 months, no major
figure has been killed or caught
in Pakistan.


Osa
bin La
appeal
video F
after
abse


Al-Qaida Central moved quickly to
overcome extensive leadership losses
by promotirig loyalists who had served
alongside bin Laden for years. It
restarted fundraising, recruiting and
training. And it expanded its media
arm into perhaps the most effective
propaganda machine ever assembled
by a terrorist or insurgent network.
Today, al-Qaida operates much the
way it did before 2001. The network is


governed by a shura, or leader-
ship council, that meets regular-
ly and reports to bin Laden, who
continues to approve some
major decisions, according to a
senior U.S. intelligence official.
About 200 people belong to
the core group and many
receive regular salaries, anoth-
ma er senior U.S. intelligence offi-
aden cial said.
Friday in "They do appear to meet with
long a frequency that enables them
nce. to act as an organization and not
just as a loose bunch of guys,"
the second official said.
Operatives are organized into cells
with separate missions, such as
fundraising or logistics, and may know
the identities of only a few individuals
in their circle to prevent infiltration,
Pakistani officials said. Most leaders
are based in Pakistan, although many
travel to Afghanistan and occasionally
farther afield, to Iraq, Turkey, Iran, the
Caucasus region and North Africa.


Many U.S., Pakistani and European:
intelligence officials now agree that al-:
Qaida's ability to launch operations
around the globe did not diminish after
the invasion of Afghanistan as much asi
previously thought
Further investigation has shown, for
example, that al-Qaida's leadership,
with bin Laden's direct blessing, made
the decision to activate sleeper cells in
Saudi Arabia in 2003, prompting a wave
of car bombings and assassination
attempts that the Saudi government has
only recently brought under control.
From hideouts in Pakistan, according
to court testimony and interviews, bin
Laden's deputies ordered attacks on a
Tunisian synagogue in 2002, a British!
consulate and bank in Istanbul in 2003,
and the London transit system in 2005.
U.S intelligence officials also blame
the al-Qaida brain trust for orchestrat-
ing dozens of other failed plots, includ-
ing a plan to blow up transatlantic
flights from Britain in August 2006.

LEMONT, Ill. - Playing next to
Tiger Woods for two days was daunt-
ing enough. It was when Steve
Stricker watched him from 200 yards
away on an elevated tee that he real-
ized how tough it would be to beat
him Sunday in the BMW

He arrived on the

Not so, Woods replied.
"I didn't do a Sergio," Woods said
with a smile, referring to when Sergio
Garcia stared him down at nearby
Medinah eight years ago in a fruitless
chase at the PGA Championship.
Woods only cared about making
birdies, and he got enough oF them at
Cog Hill to close with an 8-under 63
for a two-shot victoryy over Aaron
Baddele. Along tile way. Wood n shat-
tered the tournament scoring record,
collected his 60th career victory on
the PGA Tour and inmoed atop the

"If you wanted to win this tourna-
ment, you had to make putts," Woods
said. '"And I just happened to make

Federer erased all of those, show-

In Djokovic, Federer was facing the

Bulls knock off

Auburn in OT but

can't crack Top 25

Associated Press

AUBURN, Ala. - It was just another
South Florida upset special and one
more September stumble for Auburn.
Taking advantage of numerous blun-
ders by the Tigers and overcoming a
few of their own, the Bulls made a grab
for more national respect with
Saturday night's 26-23 overtime win.
But coach Jim Leavitt was more con-
cerned with another benefit besides
the ranking and the latest entry into
the Bulls' growing reputation for
knocking off more well-known pro-
grams.
"It's going to give us confidence,"


said Leavitt, whose team had been 0-4
against the Southeastern Conference.
"We've got the toughest schedule we've
ever had this season. We've got North
Carolina coming to our place and'
they're going to be an outstanding
team. We'll have to play just as well
against them."
And Auburn will have to play con-
siderably better to avoid a disappoint-
ing season. The Tigers committed five
turnovers and managed just 290 yards
- a measly two in their overtime pos-
session, which ended with Wes
Byrum's third field goal arid sixth in
two games. The freshman has been
the biggest weapon for an offense that
has managed just three touchdowns in
two games.
The Tigers fell out of the Associated
Press Top 25 poll from a No. 17 ranking.
South Florida hosts North Carolina
and No. 4 West Virginia in the next two

JOLIET, Ill. - Dario Franchitti

unlikely victory Sunday at

first IndyCar Series title in what
might be his farewell to open-wheel

Franchitti, who nearly saw the

the season finale, could hardly

LT, Chargers sink Bears


Associated Press

SAN DIEGO - LaDainian
Tomlinson and San Diego
finally took control of a sloppy
season opener, with the reign-
ing NFL MVP throwing for one
touchdown and rushing for
another in a 14-3 win over
Chicago.
The Bears, who topped the
NFC last year at 13-3 before
losing in the Super Bowl to
Indianapolis, were nothing
short of brutal with four
turnovers. Two of them set up
the game's only two touch-
downs.
The Chargers, an NFL-best
14-2 in 2006 before their playoff
pratfall against New England
had two turnovers and allowed
three sacks. Still, Norv Turner
came away a winner in his
debut as Chargers head coach,
raising his overall head coach-
ing record with three teams to
59-82-1.
Tomlinson threw a 17-yard
TD pass to All-Pro tight end
Antonio Gates with 45 seconds
left in the third quarter, then
scored on a 7-yard run with
9:09 left to play.
Packers 16, Eagles 13
GREEN BAY, Wis. - Rookie
kicker Mason Crosby's 42-yard
field goal with 2 seconds left gave
the Green Bay Packers a 16-13
victory over the Philadelphia
Eagles on Sunday.
The Packers benefited from a
second major mistake by the
Eagles' special teams, when J.R.
Reed bobbled a punt with 59 sec-
onds remaining. Green Bay's
Jarrett Bush recovered at the
Philadelphia 31.
Reed had replaced returned
Greg Lewis, whose muffed punt
led to a Packers touchdown in the
first quarter. .
Brett Favre struggled with a
young supporting cast on offense
for most of the afternoon, but still
was able to tie John Elway's record
with his 148th career victory as a
starting quarterback. Favre was
23-of-42 for 206 yards.
It was a so-so return for Eagles
quarterback Donovan McNabb,
who tore a knee ligament last'
November and finished the regular
season on the sideline for the sec-
ond straight year. McNabb was 15-
of-33 for 184 yards with a touch- .
down and an interception.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.
- Randy Moss, who missed
most of camp with a hamstring
injury, caught nine passes from
Tom Brady for 183 yards and a
touchdown in his New England
debut during a 38-14 victory
over the Jets.
Ellis Hobbs set an NFL
record by taking the second-
half kickoff 108 yards for a
score.
Moss, obtained for a fourth-
round choice in a draft-day
trade with Oakland had two
miserable years with the
Raiders after being a perenni-
al Pro Bowl receiver with
Minnesota. He and Brady
established an immediate con-
nection, even with the receiv-
er's missed time in training
camp. Moss' 51-yard touch-
down catch in the third quarter
gave the Patriots a 28-7 lead.
Brady, who faced little pres-
sure from the Jets, was 22-of-28
for 297 yards and three touch-
downs, including a 5-yarder to
Benjamin Watson. He is 7-0
against the Jets at Giants
Stadium, and 11-2 overall in
starts against New York
Uons 36, Raiders 21
OAKLAND Calif. - Jon Kitna
threw a go-ahead, 32-yard touch-
down pass to Shaun McDonald
with 4:15 remaining and Dewayne
White forced two late turnovers that
helped Detroit rally to beat Oakland
after blowing a 17-point lead.
The matchup between the NFL's


two worst teams from a year ago
turned highly entertaining in the
second half when former Lions
backup quarterback Josh McCown
led the Raiders on three touch-
down drives to turn a 17-0 deficit
into a 21-20 Oakland lead with
7:43 to go.
Then Kitna took over and
spoiled Lane Kiffin's coaching


Associated Press
San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson (21) beats Chicago's Charles Tillman (33) for
a seven-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter Sunday in San Diego. The Chargers won 14-3.


Broncos 15, Bills 14
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - Jason
Elam hit a 42-yard field goal just
before time expired to lift Denver.
Elam, who missed two field-goal
attempts earlier, almost didn't have
a chance to make up for those. The
Broncos were out of timeouts when
Jay Cutler hit Javon Walker for an
11-yard catch with 14 seconds left.
Rather than spiking the ball to
stop the clock, the Broncos' field-
goal unit rushed onto the field and
got the snap off just in time. It
spoiled what had been a remark-
ably poised effort for a young Bills
defense that lost three starters dur-.
ing the game.


The Broncos had 470 yards of
offense, including Travis Henry's
139 yards rushing, but managed
only three field goals and a touch-
down in eight trips into Bills territory.
Cutler produced on the winning
drive, twice converting fourth-down
situations.
Buffalo had 184 yards of
offense. Rookie Marshawn Lynch
ran for 90 yards, including a 23-
yard touchdown in which he bulled
Denver's Jeff Shoate backward for,
the final 3 yards, to put the Bills up.
14-6 midway through the third
quarter.
Redskints 16, Dolphins 13
LANDOVER, Md. - Shaun


Suisham kicked a 39-yard field
goal 5:36 into overtime to spoil the
NFL head coaching debut of
Miami's Cam Cameron.
The Redskins won the coin
toss to start overtime and drove
58 yards in 10 plays, all but two
runs by Clinton Portis and Ladell
Betts. Portis, who missed the
entire preseason with knee ten-
dinitis, ran 9 yards to Miami's 22
to.set up Suisham's kick, which
camie on first down.
,'Antwaan Randle El, promoted
O6No. 2 receiver this year, had
five catches for a career-high
162 yards arid had a hand in
every Redskins score in
regulation.

four of five passes for 67 yards on
the game-winning drive, capping it
with his third touchdown pass of
the game.
Titans 13, Jaguars 10
JACKSONVILLE - Chris Brown
ran for 175 yards, Vince Young and
LenDale White combined for
another 88 on the ground and
Tennessee ran roughshod over
Jacksonville.
Brown found big holes in
Jacksonville's vaunted defense.
Most of his big runs came up the
middle as Tennessee's offensive
line manhandled Pro Bowl tackles
Marcus Stroud and John
Henderson.
Tennessee finished with 282
yards rushing, a franchise record
for both teams. Jacksonville's pre-
vious high allowed was 246 yards
against Seattle in 2005.
Tennessee's previous best was
279 against Miami in 1967.
Fred Taylor ran six times for 16
yards. Maurice Jones-Drew had 32
yards on seven carries for the
Jaguars. QB David Garrard, who
was supposed to give the team a
better chance to win in the wake of
Byron Leftwich's departure, made
several big plays. He finished 17-of-
30 for 204 yards and a touchdown.

Steelers 34, Browns 7
CLEVELAND - Ben
Roethlisberger threw a career-high
four touchdown passes and
Pittsburgh cruised in Mike Tomlin's
NFL coaching debut.
Willie Parker rushed for 109
yards as the Steelers started the
Tomlin Era with the kind of bruising
victory that typified former coach Bill
Cowher's tenure in the Steel City.
The Steelers pounced on mis-
takes by the bumbling Browns to
open a 17-0 lead in the first quarter.
Roethlisberger went 12-of-23 for
161 yards. He threw two TD pass-
es in the first quarter and two more
in the third period for the Steelers.
Vikings 24, Falcons 3
MINNEAPOLIS - Somewhere,
Michael Vick must have been
shaking his head.
The Minnesota defense over-
whelmed Atlanta's Joey Harrington
with six sacks and two interception
returns for touchdowns, and rookie
running back Adrian Peterson fin-
ished off the Falcons.
Kevin Williams returned an inter-
ception 54 yards for a first-quarter
score, and Antoine Winfield ran one
back 14 yards in the fourth quarter
for Minnesota. Peterson made an
amazing catch out of the backfield


lUOIIIIIT un i z ji IIv I areIIs OL Ite I
Chester Taylor hurt his hip.
Harrington? He certainly didn't
do anything to make Atlanta forget
about Vick, whose indefinite sus-
pension and possible jail time for
his role in a dogfighting ring -
stunned the Falcons this summer.
Harrington finished 23-for-32 for
199 yards, but without a score and
the two interceptions.
Texans 20, Chiefs 3
HOUSTON - Mario Williams,
last year's No. 1 draft pick,
returned a fumble for a touchdown,
had five tackles including two
sacks to help Houston over
Kansas City.
Matt Schaub had a successful, if
a bit inconsistent debut in Houston,
going 16-of-22 for 225 yards with a
touchdown and an interception.
The Texans led 10-0 when
Jamar Fletcher knocked the ball
out of Kris Wilson's hands that
Williams recovered. The 6-foot-7,
285-pound defensive end got up
and rumbled 38 yards for the
touchdown.
Both of Williams' sacks came
after halftime, the second a 6-yard
loss inside the 20 that forced the
Chiefs to settle for a field goal.
Justin Medlock's 27-yarder made it
17-3 in the third quarter.
Panthers 27, Rams 13
ST. LOUIS - Steve Smith out-
sprinted Tye Hill on a 68-yard catch
for the go-ahead play in Carolina's
win. As Smith eased into the end
zone, Hill stumbled and then slid on
his stomach for several yards. Smith
had seven catches for 118 yards.
The Rams' decision to give fea-
tured back Steven Jackson the
preseason off backfired. Jackson
lost two fumbles on consecutive
carries in the third quarter, equaling
his season total from last season.
The first fumble negated a scor-
ing opportunity, with Julius Peppers
recovering at the Carolina 26. The
Rams' defense saved Jackson on
the second fumble, with hits by
Brandon Chillar and Corey
Chavous stripping DeShaun Foster
at the St. Louis 3.

Johnson hits stride in win


Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. - Jimmie
Johnson hit his stride at exactly
the right time, winning two
straight races to roll into the
Chase for the championship.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. never had a
chance, the victim of five faulty
motors when his season was on
the line.
Now Johnson will run for a
second consecutive Nextel Cup
title, while Earnhardt watches
from the sidelines for the second


time in three years
Johnson easily raced to his
series-best sixth victory of the
season, winning. Saturday night
at Richmond International
Raceway to shore up the top
seed in the Chase. But
Earnhardt, the only driver math-
ematically eligible to race, his
way into contention, suffered hi'
third blown motor in the past
seven races to finish 30th.
"We broke another motor tnd
they seem to fall apart when they
plug 'em into my car," Earnhardt


said. "We deserve to be in the
Chase. We race hard. We don't
quit We love racing. That's what
we do.
"It's just disappointing, man.
These dang motors."
He's not likely to have those
problems when he joins
Hendrick Motorsports next
season.
Johnson and Co. have been
near flawless this season, and
the- defending seriestchampion
will start the 10-race title hunt on
top of the standings.

Robert De Niro sharing a box
with his parents in the stands.
Federer - dressed for an
evening on the town, he was all
in black, from headwrap and
,wristband to socks and shoes,
from shirt to shorts with tuxe-
do-like satin stripes down the
side - finished things under
the lights by breaking Djokovic
in the last game with the help
of a no-look, over-the-shoulder
volley winner.
It's the type of shot that has
prompted plenty of people to
call Federer the greatest to
ever swing a racket - and at
26, he's still in his prime.
Djokovic might be younger,
but he was the one breathing
heavily midway through the
first set, standing in place and
beckoning a ballkid to bring
him a towel so he could rest a
bit after a 16-shot point
Federer was hardly the
Federer everyone has to come
to expect, making 34 unforced
errors. When he double-fault-


ed, then sprayed two fore-
hands long, Djokovic had the
first break of the match, going
up 6-5. Perhaps thinking they'd
witness an upset, many in the
over-capacity crowd of 25,230
got on their feet, clapping and
screaming.
So Djokovic served for the
first set and raced out to a 40-
love edge.
Three set points. Three
chances to take a one-set lead
against Federer in the U.S.
Open final.
And just like that, they van-
ished: Federer hit a cross-
court forehand winner that
caught a line, and Djokovic
missed two backhands.
Then came a fourth set
point, but Djokovic sent a fore-
hand long.
Then a fifth, but Federer
smacked a forehand return
that landed right on the base-
line, drawing Djokovic's stab
backhand long.
After Djokovic missed yet
another backhand to give
Federer his first break point of
the match, the Serb's nerves
really got the better of him: He
double-faulted.

led 20-6.
On the series before Garcia
left, Patrick Kerney,, Brianr
Russell - two of Seattle's four
new starters on defense - plus
Lofa Tatupu crashed into
Williams at the end of a 4-yard
run. Williams, who had 60 yard
on 12 carries, walked into the
locker room with a rib injury. ,
"You don't want to see any-
one get hurt seriously,"
Peterson said. "But this Seattle
defense is different. We're
coming to hit We're coming t6
hurt. We want to get that repu-
tation around the rest of the
league, because that will help
our offense."
The Buccaneers, who scored
10 points or less in eight games
while sinking to 4-12 last sea-
son, fared no better in the 37-
year-old Garcia's first start.
Garcia was 12-for-19 for 152
yards, but was sacked three
times and hit six other times:
McCown was 1-for-4 for 9
yards with two sacks in his
two drives.
"When we get the chance to
deliver the punch, we are
,going to try to knock people
out," said new Seattle safety
Deon Grant.

WOODS

Continued from Page 1B

under 262 to break by five
shots the 72-hole record at
Cog Hill first set by Scott
Hoch in 2001 and matched
by Woods two years later.
And while his 60th tour
victory surprised him, the
amazement wore off when
he was reminded that it was
only 13 months ago at the
Buick Open that everyone
made a fuss out of Woods
winning No. 50.
Baddeley gave him a
good chase until he ran out
of birdies on the back nine
and settled for a 66.
Stricker was tied for the
lead until his 3-iron clipped
a tree and came up well
short on the 12th, leading to
a bogey no one could afford.
He wound up with a 68 to
finish alone in third,
enough for him to move up
to No. 2 in the FedEx Cup
standings.
"There isn't a lot you can
do," Stricker said. "I would
have had to shoot 63 today
to beat him. When you see
him ahead of us making the
birdies and hearing the
roars, you know that he's on
a roll and not making many
mistakes. It's tough."
It also might be tough to
catch him in the FedEx
Cup, which concludes next
week at the Tour
Championship.
Woods goes to East Lake
in Atlanta with a 3,133-point
lead over Stricker and a
4,120-point margin over
Phil Mickelson, who decid-
ed not to play this week
Mickelson, the Deutsche
Bank Championship win-
ner Monday, will have to
"win to have any hopes of
capturing the FedEx Cup
and the $10 million prize. If
Stricker does not win at
-East Lake, Woods could win
.the cup by finishing second.
Only two other players -
Rory Sabbatini and KJ.
Choi - have a mathemati-
cal chance.
"Winning takes care of
everything," Woods said,
whose best is a runner-up
at East Lake.
All that mattered at the
moment was winning at
Cog Hill for the fourth time.


It was Woods' sixth victory
of the year, and the $1.26
million pushed him over $9
million for the fourth time
in his career.


Ass
The Yankees' Alex Rodriguez watches the ball after hitting
home run during the first inning against the Kansas City I
Sunday. The blast was Rodriguez's MLB-leading 51st of the


Yankees 6, Royals 3
KANSAS CITY, Mo.- There's
just no stopping A-Rod.
Alex Rodriguez homered for the
fifth straight game, connecting for
the seventh time during that span
and sending the New York Yankees
beat the Kansas City Royals 6-3 on
Sunday for a three-game sweep.
Chien-Ming Wang earned his 18th
win to remain tied for the major
league lead, and Jorge Posada hit a
tiebreaking, two-run double that
helped New York extend its AL wild-
card lead to four games over Detroit.
Playing without Derek Jeter, held
out with a sore knee, the Yankees
stayed 5/� games back of first-place
Boston in the AL East. The Red Sox
beat Baltimore 3-2 behind Josh
Beckett, who also has 18 wins.
Wang (18-6) gave up a three-
run double to rookie Alex Gordon
but went seven innings to win his
fifth start in a row. Against the
Royals, the right-hander is 4-0 in
six career starts.


Phillies 8, Marlins 5
PHILADELPHIA- Pat Burrell
homered and drove in three runs,
and Jamie Moyer overcame one
awful inning to remain unbeaten
against Florida and lead the
Philadelphia Phillies to an 8-5 win
over the Marlins on Sunday.
Carlos Ruiz also homered for
the Phillies, who tagged Dontrelle
Willis and rebounded from a crush-
ing loss on Wednesday at Atlanta
to take two of three from the
Marlins. The Phillies open a four-
game set with Colorado on
Monday in a series that could shuf-
fle the National League wild-card
standings.
Hanley Ramirez, Jeremy
Hermida and Mike Jacobs homered
during a five-run sixth for the
Marlins.
Twice last week the Phillies blew
5-0 leads in stunning losses to
Florida and the Braves that
knocked them back in the NL East
and severely hindered their wild-
card run. They almost blew another
early lead again in this one.

Mets 4, Astros 1
NEW YORK - Pedro Martinez's
return to Shea Stadium was a huge
success.
Martinez tossed five shutout
innings in his first start at home this
season, outpitching Roy Oswalt and
leading the New York Mets past the
Houston Astros 4-1 Sunday for a
three-game sweep.
Martinez had shoulder surgery in
October and worked five innings in
his return to the majors last Monday
at Cincinnati, earning the win in New
York's 10-4 victory. He followed that
up with a more impressive outing,
scattering six hits and striking out four
against the skidding Astros.
Moises Alou hit a two-run homer
and Carlos Beltran drove in two runs
for New York, which has won eight of
nine since it was swept in a four-
game series at Philadelphia. The NL
East-leading Mets entered the day
with a six-game lead over the Phillies.
Luke Scott homered for Houston,
which has lost seven of eight and
went 2-7 on its nine-game road trip.
The Astros managed only five runs in


the series.

Red Sox 3, Orioles 2
BALTIMORE - Josh Beckett
allowed two runs in seven innings to
earn his 18th victory, and the Boston
Red Sox completed another suc-
cessful season at Camden Yards by
beating the Baltimore Orioles 3-2
Sunday.
Coco Crisp singled home the
tiebreaking run in the eighth inning,
Mike Lowell drove in two runs and

son since 1998, going 54-23 during
that span.
Beckett (18-6) yielded seven hits,
struck out eight - including Brian
Roberts three times - and walked
none. The right-hander is 4-1 life-
time against the Orioles, including 4-
0 with a 2.05 ERA in four starts at
Baltimore.

and Jonathan Papelbon got three
outs for his 35th save in 36
chances. The closer had retired 17

Indians 6, Angels 2
ANAHEIM, Calif. - Ryan Garko hit
a three-run homer, Asdrubal Cabrera

Indians beat the Los Angeles Angels
6-2 Sunday night to split a four-game
series between AL division leaders.
Cleveland's 13th victory in 16 tries
increased its AL Central lead to six
games over Detroit. The first-place
Angels, who played without ailing right
fielder Vladimir Guerrero again, have
an eight-game cushion over Seattle in
the AL West.
Aaron Laffey (3-1) pitched five
innings for the Indians, allowing two
runs and six hits while striking out
three in his sixth major league start.
One of the runs against the left-han-
der was unearned, the result of a
throwing error by shortstop Jhonny
Peralta.
Jensen Lewis, Rafael Perez and
Joe Borowski combined for four
scoreless innings of three-hit relief.
Jered Weaver (11-7) threw 97
pitches over five innings, allowing six
runs and nine hits - all in a span of
13 batters.
Mike Napoli made his first start
behind the plate for the Angels since
July 27, when he strained his right
hamstring on a steal of second base.
The Indians tested him the first two
times they put a runner on.

Bill Cosby talks
about school
LOS ANGELES - Bill
Cosby is getting behind
efforts to improve education.
Cosby announced last
week that his animated
series, "Little Bill," which is
aimed at getting preschool-
ers interested in learning, is
returning to
television on
cable's
Noggin net-
work It pre-
viously was
part of the
Nickelodeon
cable net-
Bill osby work's "Nick

ming bloc for
preschoolers.
In an era where the edu-
cation reform act No Child
Left Behind dominates edu-
cation, the comedian com-
plained recently, "The high
school dropout rate in some
cities is as high as 55 to 75
percent. While the behinds
are moving forward, some of
the minds are left behind."
Beginning today, Cosby's
show will air weekdays on
Noggin at 11 a.m. and 2:30
p.m. It will be broadcast at
1:30 p.m. on the weekends.

exceeded 2006 results.
The performance of "3:10 to Yuma,"
which paired Russell Crowe and
Christian Bale, thrilled Lionsgate exec-
utives, who chose this weekend to posi-
tion the film for Oscar consideration.
"We wanted to be the first Western
into the marketplace this fall, we want-
ed to be the first prestige film this fall
and we wanted to set ourselves up as
the first award-caliber picture of the
fall and I think we accomplished all of
those goals," president of Lionsgate
theatrical films Tom Ortenberg said.
Westerns, once a Hollywood staple,
are a tough sell these days. The last crit-
ically acclaimed film of note in that
genre was 1992's "Unforgiven," starring
Clint Eastwood.
This fall will see two Westerns con-
tending both for box office and awards
buzz. "The Assassination of Jesse James
by the Coward Robert Ford," starring
Brad Pitt, opens Sept. 21.


Lionsgate picked the weekend after
Labor Day to separate its film from the
slew of fall Oscar contenders that will
be released starting in the next few
weeks. Topping the box office gives the
film legitimacy with awards voters,
Ortenberg said.
"The genre films that have gone on to
win best picture - 'Gladiator,'
'Braveheart,' 'Unforgiven' - all of them
were commercial successes before they
were award winners," he said. "Voters
want to see a level of commercial suc-
cess before they grant you awards suc-
cess."
The weekend's other high profile
opener, "Shoot 'Em Up," starring Clive
Owen took in only $5.5 million, but it
was good enough to finish sixth in an
otherwise slow movie weekend.
The documentary about the Apollo
space program, "In the Shadow of the
Moon," did well in limited release. The
movie, from ThinkFilm, took in $41,200

Spears delivered what %ws a
destined to be the most it
talked about performance
of the MTV Video Music
Awards- but for all the a.rong
reasons.
Kicking off the show Sunda. night
with her new single, "Gimme More-,"
Britney Spears looked bleary and
unprepared, much like her recent
tabloid exploits on the streets ol Los
Angeles.
The MTV Video Music i
Awards was hoping to rein-
vent itself on Sunday.
After suffering poor
reviews and a decline
in ratings over the
last few years.
MTV moved the
show to Las
Vegas' Palms
Casino, short-
ened the show


from three hours to two, and changed the
show's setup to focus more on per-
formances than awards.
To that end, Justin
Ti mberlake and
Timbaland, Kanye
West, Fall Out Boy
and the .Foo
Fighters were
each hosting four
separate suite par-
ties, where much of
S the show's perform-
ances would be
held.

and a lukewarm

Sarah Silverman, the

forms. Before he accepted the Quadruple
Threat of the Year award at his suite, the
DJ summoned the partygoers to watch the
monitor and go crazy if Timberlake won.
He did, they did, and Timberlake said:
"I want to challenge MTV to play more
videos!" Then he was whisked away by
bodyguards and disappeared. He later
won male artist of the year.
Meanwhile, Rihanna won Monster
Single of the Year for her ubiquitous hit
"Umbrella," and Beyonce and Shakira
won Most Earthshattering Collaboration
for "Beautiful Liar." Beyonce's shimmer-
ing gold dress barely contained her top;
immediately after she picked up her tro-
phy, she asked an assistant backstage to
help fix her dress, apparently to prevent a
wardrobe malfunction.
Other performers were appearing on
the show's main stage, in front of an indus-
try-only audience seated at tables, like at
the Golden Globes. Chris Brown gave one
of the evening's most extravagant per-
formances - a dance-centric, eye-popping
spectacle that channeled Michael
Jackson, right down to a brief "Billie Jean"
imitation. Later, he was joined by
Rihanna, who performed her monster sin-
gle.
And Nicole Scherzinger, making her
solo debut from the Pussycat Dolls, gave a
performance for the gawking fans, per-
forming her new single with the rapper
Lil' Wayne.


Metroid Prime 3' brings

AP technology writer


Action heroine Samus gets to
face her evil twin in "Metroid
Prime 3: Corruption," the final
game in the science-fiction tril-
ogy and the first for Nintendo's
Wii.
The Wii's focus on casual
games has meant a bounty of
simple titles for the whole fam-
ily.
But there's been a dearth of
action for the hardcore gaming
set. "Corruption" finally pro-

meatier than bowling or tennis.
This $49.99, T-rated title
pushes the Wii to its limits.
The graphics - while not up
to Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3
standards - surpass anything
else available for the Wii,

Most importantly, the wire-

Mother should find new living arrangement


ear Annie: My 88-year-old mother
is living with my son and his wife.
Mom's mind is good and she is
very healthy, although she has used a
walker since her partial hip replacement
last year
The problem is, Mom has to
have everyone's attention on
her all the time. She thinks she
is the most important person
* in the family and we have to
accommodate her. But she's
impossible to please. She
bumped her back a while ago
and did nothing but complain
When she was alone in a room,
she was absolutely fine, but as
soon as anyone walked in, she
would start to moan and
groan. ANN
Mom complains endlessly MAIl
about my daughter-in-law, but
takes full advantage of her hospitality.
The other day, my daughter-in-law went to
check on her and saw through tle crack of
the door that Mom was sitting up in her
bed reading. As soon as my daughter-in-
law knocked, Mom stashed the book and
pretended to be asleep.
I have tried to talk to my mother about
her demanding behavior, but there is no
getting through her thick head. My son
doesn't know what to do with her any-
more, and no one else wants her to live
with them. What do you suggest? -
Burned Out in California
Dear Burned Out If Mom is financially


L


solvent and can get around with a walker,
she does not need to be living with her
grandson. It's time for the family to get
together and talk with Mom about an
apartment, retirement home or assisted-
living facility. She could be
much happier where she has
friends and activities - and a
whole new audience to
impress.
Dear Annie: Please settle a
dispute between my husband
and me. Several weeks ago, I
surprised him with a 50th
birthday party. It was very low
key and in our back yard.
Several of his friends gave
him gifts. I handed him the
addresses and thank-you
IE'S notes for him to write out He
.BOX stated that since he is now 50,
he doesn't need to write
thank-you notes, and furthermore, he did-
n't ask for any of the gifts. He said it was
enough that he thanked everyone in per-
son for coming.
I believe that you are never too old to
write a thank-you note, and since he did-
n't open the gifts in front of anyone, thank-
ing them for coming isn't sufficient 1 feel
bad about this since I initiated the party,
but I have no intention of writing his notes
myself. Please advise. -Wife of Stubborn
50-Year-Old
Dear Wife: Being gracious has no age
limit, and being 50 does not entitle your
husband to be rude. Of course he should


write notes to every person who was
thoughtful enough to bring him a present,
but your husband is lazy and doesn't want
to bother He's not 6 years old, even if he
acts like it, so say nothing more. His
friends will think he is lacking in man-
ners, and they will be right
DearAnnie: I am writing in response to
'Torn in Michigan," who couldn't deal
with her husband's children after her
own child had died. She was considering
divorce. Your answer - to stay put and
seek help - was right, but could have
been stronger.
Depression is an elusive enemy.
Remind your readers that the first thera-
pist and the first medications may not be
the right ones. Keep looking.
I suffer from recurring depression. The
first time, I worked for two years in thera-
py, rearranging the mixed-up furniture of
my life. The second time, anti-depres-
sants were available, but even five years
later, my daughter remembers how hard
it was to be mothered by a woman who
was so distant from grief. I am grateful I
knew where to find help so I could get
back to her -- and myself. - Been There
in Cambridge, Mass.
Dear Cambridge: Thank goodness you
recognized your illness and didn't give up.
We hope "Torn" is listening.

== Today HOROSCOPE


Your Birthday: Chance could play a
greater role than usual in the outcome of
events. However, if you do all that you possi-
bly can to achieve your purposes, you'll con-
siderably cut down any poor timing that could
upset things for you.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Be careful
that something you do doesn't thoughtlessly
inconvenience another, just so you can have
what you want.
Libra (Sept 23-Oct. 23) - You could be
tempted to exaggerate and stretch the truth a
bit in order to make yourself look good.
Scorpio (Oct 24-Nov. 22) - There are
indications in your chart that you could be a bit
wasteful where your resources are concerned
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Those
who have to share the day with you will resent
it if you're inconsiderate and too self-serv-
ing.Capricom (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Make
certain you are seeing your problems for what
they really are. Don't overreact or view them
through rose-colored glasses, or you'll have
no way of working things out.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Engaging
in the least expensive activities will prove to
be most gratifying for you.


Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) - Something
you're hoping to achieve depends a great
deal on timing and luck. Unfortunately, today
may not be the day that will offer you either,
and factors could work against you instead.
Aries (March 21-April 19) - You're too
smart to believe everything you hear, so don't
start now.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) - Subdue your
risk-taking urges, especially if they involve an
outlay of money in hopes of scoring unrealis-
tic gains.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) - Although
you know better, there is a strong possibility
you may make an unwise decision, similar to
one you made previously that didn't turn out
well.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) - Just
because a certain philosophy suits someone
else to a T doesn't mean it will fit your require-
ments. Be your own person and don't try to
imitate what is not right for you.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) - Remain as
thoughtful and gracious as you usually are in
your social involvements, regardless of how
another may be acting. Bad manners and
poor taste are never attractive.

Saturda'sI Jumbles: FETCH NOVEL AGHAST NAUGHT
y Answer: What she got when she dried her laundry
outdoors - THE "HANG" OF IT


....-. - .-B... Bridge


PHILLIP ALDER
Newspaper Enterprise Assn.

An opponent opens with four of
a suit. What does it mean if you
double?
Traditional wisdom treated a
double of four of a minor for take-
out, a double of four hearts also for
takeout but promised - nay, guar-
anteed - four spades, and a dou-
ble of four spades for penalty.
Any pure penalty is not a good
idea, because against normal play-
ers you,-will not have a trump
stack. A double of four of any suit
should just say that you have too
many points to pass and nothing
better to do. You have anywhere
from a classic takeout double - 4-
4-4-1 with a singleton in the open-
er's suit - to a balanced hand with
at least 15 points.
How should partner react? iHe
should pass with a balanced hand,
or bid a long suit if he has one, con-
fident that your dummy will con-
tain some useful cards.
In this deal, after West opens four
clubs, you (North) have no choice
but the double, hoping that partner
does not bid four hearts on a five-
card suit Here, South has a whop-
ping hand and bids what he thinks
he can make. Well, how should he
plan the play in six diamonds after
West leads the club king?

There are 12 top tricks: three
spades, one heart, seven diamonds
and one club. But if West has eight
clubs for his opening bid, East
must be void. So, South should
play a low club from the board at
trick one. And do the same at trick
two if West continues with another
club.
Note that, with this layout, play-
ing the club ace too early costs the
contract. East ruffs, and South has
an unavoidable heart loser.
