Officials rescue stuck manatees

Rescuers remove one of three manatees stranded on Friday in a Crystal River drainage ditch. The manatees swam in through a culvert during high tide
early in the morning and could not get out when the tide went out.

Officials rescued three manatees Friday that
found themselves stuck in a drainage ditch after
an extremely high tide the night before.
The two adult male manatees and female calf
were trapped in a ditch off Cutler Spur Boule-
vard in Crystal River, behind the Bank of Amer-
ica on U.S. 19.
At about 1 a.m. Friday, the tide rose so high
that various low-lying roadways were flooded
and needed to be closed, city of Crystal River
public works director John Lettow said.
As the water rose, the three manatees were
able to swim through a culvert and over a
. wooden barricade that separates the culvert
from the ditch. When the tide went out, the man-
atees were still underwater in the ditch, but ma-
rooned behind the barricade.


Dunnellon resident Peter Cecere Jr. was walk-
ing in the area with his 4-year-old, Paige, when
they spotted the animals in the ditch Friday af-
ternoon. The two were watching the manatees
when boat captain Stacy Dunn noticed them and
stopped to see what they were looking at. Dunn
knew the emergency Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) phone num-
ber to call and alerted officials.
FWC marine biologist Andy Garrett and a
crew were nearby in King's Bay taking a dead
and partially decomposed manatee from the
water when they responded to the stranded
manatees.
Volunteers to help rescue the manatees were
easy to come by as ,a U.S. Geological Survey
crew, made up of about 75 people from various

Associated Press
ST. PETERSBURG - Gov.
Charlie Crist became the first
sitting Florida governor to
wed in nearly 42 years, ex-
changing vows Friday
evening with New York so-
cialite Carole Rome in a
church ceremony.
Crist, 52, and Rome, 39, met
at a dinner in New York City
in September 2007 and the
romance took off quickly.
Less then 10 months later,
Crist proposed, giving the
millionaire socialite a sap-
phire engagement ring at his


rented condo in downtown
St Petersburg.
The wedding was at First
United Methodist Church, a
short walk from Crist's home,
followed by a reception at the
Renaissance Vinoy resort.
About 200 relatives and
friends were invited, a list
that included some of Crist's
closest staff and political sup-
porters.
"She's a beautiful first lady
I couldn't be more excited,"
Crist said after the 20-minute
ceremony, his bride at his

"Just fortuitously, we were
all here." USGS wildlife biol-
ogist Cathy Beck said.
The manatee health as-
sessments have been done
the last four years in Crystal
River to provide health data
on the West Indian manatees.
The assessments help deter-
mine the fitness, specifically
related to environmental is-
sues, of the mammals. Crews
take blood, size measure-
ments, and implant a tag so
officials have baseline data
for an animal if it's captured
again.
Once at the ditch, the vol-
unteer rescuers walked
through the chest-deep,
murky water to conral the
manatees and determine just
how many were in the ditch.

sporting events around Florida. She
even joined the governor backstage
at a Jimmy Buffett concert in
Tampa a little more than a month
after they met.
"I was taken with her right away,"
Crist said earlier this week "You
know how it is when you fall in love.
It's pretty overwhelming - a very
cool thing."
Both have been married before,
Crist to a college sweetheart in
1980, a marriage that ended less
than a year later. Rome was sepa-
rated from Blue Star Jets president


Todd Rome when she met Crist and
finalized her divorce earlier this
year. She has two daughters from
that marriage, aged 10 and 12.
Crist's father, Charles Crist, was
tapped to serve as best man, and
Rome's sister, Michele Oumano
Powell, as matron of honor.
Rome wore a floor-length classic
silk gown by a Spanish designer and
train-length veil. She purchased the
gown at the upscale Wedding Atel-
ier in Manhattan. Her 3-inch heels
were by British designer Filippa
Scott.


Rome, a socialite millionaire, is
president of Franco American Nov-
elty Co., her family's New York-area
Halloween costume company. She
stopped managing its daily business
when she moved to ritzy Fisher Is-
land near Miami in 2006.
Crist, who has never owned his
own home, earns $132,931.56 as gov-,
ernor.
He has spent much of his life in
public office, serving in the state
Senate, as education commissioner
and attorney general before being
elected governor.

Caylee Anthony's

Associated Press

ORLANDO - Evidence mounted
Friday that a child's skull discovered
near Caylee Anthony's home be-
longed to the missing toddler, al-
though investigators cautioned it
could be a week or more before they
have conclusive DNA evidence.
A day after a utility worker found
the remains of a child in a wooded
lot, a defense attorney said some
characteristics of the remains
matched 3-year-old Caylee, while the
county sheriff said clues linked the
remains to the child's nearby home.
Her mother, 22-year-old Casey An-
thony, was charged with first-degree


pearea in June and was not reported
missing until July.
One of her attorneys, Linda Ken-
ney Baden, said during a court hear-
ing Friday that "anthropological
measurements and hair color" of the
remains were said to match Caylee.
Orange County Sheriff Kevin Beary
said earlier Friday that a search of
the grandparents' home where the
mother and daughter lived had also
yielded links to the remains that he
would not reveal. There are no other
similar missing-child cases in the
area.
Asked if he believed it was Caylee,
Beary said: "My gut says yes, but I have
to wait seven to 14 days for the DNA
analysis to absolutely make sure."
The judge still denied a defense
motion to examine the remains, say-
ing they must wait for positive identi-
fication.

ing the remains and released on Fri-

When a utility employee told the

and warns them not to disturb any ev-
idence or call attention to the discov-

SAdministrative law judge rejects insurer


Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE - An adminis-
trative law judge on Friday rejected
a 47.1 percent average rate increase
sought by State Farm Florida, the
state's largest privately owned
property insurer, providing cover-
age for hurricanes, fires and other
perils.
The Florida-only affiliate of Illi-
nois-based State Farm Insurance
Co. failed to show its requested rate
was not excessive, inadequate or


unfairly discriminatory, Judge
Daniel Manry wrote in a recom-
mended order.
Florida Insurance Commissioner
Kevin McCarty now has 30 days to
issue a final order.
McCarty earlier this year rejected
the company's proposal, but State
Farm appealed. He found State
Farm failed to submit sufficient
data to support such a massive in-
crease. It would range from 23 per-
cent in inland areas to 86 percent
along Florida's coasts.


State Farm issued a statement
disputing the judge's findings, argu-
ing the increase is justified to stabi-
lize the company's deteriorating
financial condition and serve its
customers.
"We need to be able to pay our
customers' claims, particularly
those due to catastrophic events
such as hurricanes," company offi-
cials said.
"We acknowledge that this rate
increase poses a difficult situation
for our customers, especially in


light of these tough economic times;
however, it is the only responsible
choice."
McCarty declined comment be-
cause he is the final hearing officer.
If he again denies the increase,
State Farm could appeal in the
court system or submit a new re-
quest.
Last year, McCarty and State
Farm agreed on a 9 percent rate re-
duction after the company obtained
a 52.8 percent increase in 2006.
In September, he ordered State


Farm to issue credits and refunds
totaling $120 million to current and
former hurricane policyholders
who didn't receive or weren't told
they could get a discount for making
their homes more resistant to wind
damage.
State Farm is Florida's largest
privately owned homeowner in-
surer with approximately 1 million
customers. State-backed Citizens
Property Insurance Corp. is the
largest overall with 1.2 million pol-
icyholders.

Van Johnson dies at 92


M m m I ,Mm ' 1 a W . ,i
Associated Press
Van Johnson, right, and his wife, Eve Lynn Abbott, are shown in 1958 on board the liner
Queen Elizabeth as they arrive from Europe to New York. Family friend Wendy Bleiweiss
says Johnson died Friday at the Tappan Zee Manor, an assisted living center, in Nyack,
N.Y. He was 92.

Actor was popular in 1940s and 1950s


ADAM BERNSTEIN
The Washington Post


Van Johnson, a disarming and popular
Hollywood star of 1940s musicals and
comedies who later proved effective as a
G.I. grunt in-"Battleground"" tad addcon--
flicted Naval officer in "The Caine
Mutiny," has died. He was 92.
Johnson died Dec. 12 at Tappan Zee
Manor, a senior citizens home in Nyack,
N.Y. No cause of death was immediately.
reported.
Starting in the late 1940s, Johnson took
many viewers and reviewers by surprise
for his dramatic performances.
He was especially good as a presiden-
tial candidate's wily campaign manager
in Frank Capra's "State of the Union"
(1948) with Spencer Tracy as his client.
Johnson also portrayed a sneaky aide to a
general in "Command Decision" (1948);
and a cynical rifleman in William Well-
man's "Battleground" (1949), a film
praised for its. harrowing depiction-of
combat during the Battle of the Bulge.
Johnson was singled out by critics as
the executive officer who sells out the
paranoid Capt. Queeg (played by
Humphrey Bogart) in "The Caine Mutiny"
(1954), based on a best-selling novel by
Herman Wouk New York Times movie
reviewer Bosley Crowther praised John-
son for conveying the "distress and reso-
lution" required of the part
All of those films almost totally re-
versed the screen persona Metro-Gold-
wyn-Mayer studio chief Louis B. Mayer
first established for Johnson, a onetime
Broadway chorus boy elevated to imme-
diate stardom during World War II.
Injures from a car crash prevented
Johnson from being drafted during the
war. In the absence of many male rivals,
he was heavily promoted and became ex-
tremely popular.
Tall and freckled, with strawberry-
blond hair, he was dubbed "The Voiceless
Sinatra" because of his appeal among
bobbysoxers.
He was an easygoing fit for musicals
with Judy Garland ("In the Good Old
Summertime"), Esther Williams ("Easy to
Wed," "Thrill of a Romance," "Duchess of
Idaho") and June Allyson and Gloria De-
Haven ("Two Girls and a Sailor"), in
which they were the girls and he the
sailor.
He also played romantically inclined


wartime pilots in "A Guy Named Joe" and
"Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo," both dra-
mas in which he showed he could hold his
own against co-star Spencer Tracy,-_. _....
In the second - in which Johnson
played a pilot in the&Doolittle raid over
Japan - movie reviewer Crowther wrote
that Johnson gave "a warm and brave per-
formance and managed quite well to
achieve a moving tenderness in love
scenes and rigid strength in the action
field."
Charles Van Johnson, whose father was
a plumbing contractor, was born Aug. 25,
1916, in Newport, R.I.
His parents divorced, and he was
raised by a strict father who discouraged
his early interest in acting. His mother, an
alcoholic, disappeared from his life until
1946, when he got her a studio job. She
later sued him to increase her financial
support, and they settled out of court.
While starring with Spencer Tracy anid
Irene Dunne in' A Guy Named Joe"
-(1943), he was in a car accident that re-
sulted in a metal plate being inserted into
his head. He was left with a scar that was
often covered up, but which he let show
in some of his grittier films.
Johnson reportedly turned down the
role of Elliott Ness in the television crime
series "The Untouchables" in 1959. His
film work soon dwindled, but he returned
for a small role in Woody Allen's "The
Purple Rose of Cairo" (1985) as a patri-
cian 1930s film character who has trouble
improvising when one of the cast mem-
bers (Jeff Daniels) jumps offscreen into
reality.
Johnson began to call himself the King
of Dinner Theater, as he spent decades as
a fixture on the regional stage. He also be-
came a mainstay of guest spots on televi-
sion dramas, notably on "Murder, She
Wrote," which starred his old MGM col-
league Angela Lansbury.
Johnson had a famously difficult pri-
vate life. He married Evie Abbott Wynn in
Juarez in 1947 on the day her divorce be-
came final from actor Keenan Wynn, who
had been Johnson's best friend.
The Johnsons, who became known for
hosting sumptuous Hollywood parties,
were divorced in 1962 in a bitter pro-
ceeding. Their daughter, Schuyler, be-
came estranged from her father and
wrote a scathing first-person account of
him in 2005 that appeared in the Mail on
Sunday, a London newspaper.

Helen
Anders, 83
LAKE
PANASOFFKEE
Mrs. Helen Johanna An-
ders, age 83, of Lake Panasof-
fkee, Florida, died Friday,
December 5, 2008, in Inver-
ness. She was born Decem-
ber 28, 1924, in Allston,
Massachusetts, daughter of
the late Edward and Johanna
Favre. Helen lived for years
in Pensacola, Florida, with
her husband, Andy Anders,
before moving to Panasoffkee
in 1969 to be close to her
daughter, who was attending
the University of South
Florida at the time. Helen
loved to fish and found her
true home and haven in this
small community in Sumter
County. She established deep
roots in Panasoffkee, working
for years at Pana Vista Lodge
on the lake. Every non-work-
ing hour was spent in splen-
did pursuit of the art of fly
fishing. Her expertise earned
her a full-page feature story
in the sports section of the
Tampa Tribune. As her days
on the lake declined, Helen
applied her considerable
focus and commitment to
civic and community affairs.
As an avid reader, she was
surprised that Panasoffkee
had no public library so she
took an active role in a suc-
cessful grassroots effort to
create the Lake Panasoffkee
Public Library. She was also
a long-time, devout and gen-
�erous member of the Lake
Panasoffkee United
Methodist Church. In the
summer of 2007, Helen
moved to Crown Court, an as-
sisted-living facility in Inver-
.ness, .. Florida.: . She
considered this her home
and lived here happily until
passing peacefully sur-
rounded' by those who loved
her and cared for her at the
end of her life, including the
special people at Hernando-
Pasco-Citrus Hosl3ice. Helen
Anders was loved by many
and will be long remembered
and missed.
Helen was preceded in
death by her husband, Alney
(Andy) Austin Anders. She is
survived by her daughter,
Deborah Anders--of Santa
Barbara, CA; her sister, Bar-
bara Terry; and two brothers,
-Edward and George Favre.

Stocks advance


Associated Press

NEW YORK - Wall Street
put on another impressive
show of resilience Friday, re-
bounding from an early sell-
off to end higher after the
government said it would as-
sist troubled U.S. automakers.
The market, which just a
week earlier withstood a ter-
rible November employment
report, managed its advance
after the Treasury Depart-
ment said it was prepared to.
assist the nation's Big Three
automakers. The Dow Jones
industrial average had fallen
more than 200 points in early
trading after the Senate had
killed a $14. billion bailout
package for the companies.
"It's hard to say if this is in-
deed the beginning of a recov-
ery, but it could be," said Matt
King, chief investment officer
of Bell Investment Advisors.
"It seems like the past few Fri-
days we've ended the week on
a positive note."
A week ago, the market
shook off the Labor Depart-
ment's report that the econ-
omy lost a larger than
expected 533,000 jobs in No-
vember Investors are showing
a greater tolerance for bad.

economic and corporate
news, and many analysts be-
lieve that the market may
have reached a bottom after
the horrific selling of the past
three months.
Since its Nov. 20 low, the
Dow is up 14.3 percent, the


Standard & Poor's 500 is up
16.9 percent and the Nasdaq
composite index has seen a
gain of 17.1 percent Still, from
their October 2007 highs, the
Dow remains down by 39.1
percent and the S&P 500
index is down 44 percent The
Nasdaq, which peaked at the
start of the decade, is down
46.1 percent from its recent
top.
Many analysts believe Wall
Street is growing more confi-
dent that the government's
steps to stimulate the econ-
omy, including its $700 billion
bank bailout program, will
work And so news that the
Treasury Department could
help prevent bankruptcy fil-
ings and job losses in the auto
industry helped turn the mar-
ket around Friday.
"Things are looking a little
bit brighter after they made
those announcements," said
Anthony Conroy, managing di-
rector and head trader for
BNY ConvergEx Group.
Overseas, Japan's Nikkei
stock average fell 5.56 per-
cent. Britain's FTSE 100 fell
2.47 percent, Germany's DAX
index slid 2.18 percent, and
France's CAC-40 declined 2.80
percent


Retail sales fall
again in November
WASHINGTON - Consumers
reduced their spending at retail
stores again in November while
the costs of goods before they
reach store shelves also contin-
ued to drop, more bad signs in a
recession that appears to be
deepening.
Businesses also cut their in-
ventories by the largest amount in
five years, the government said
Friday, a sign the recession will
force further cuts in production.

Oil sinks with poor
economic news
UNDATED - Oil prices rallied
from a sharp drop Friday as the
president and the Treasury De-
partment said they were pre-
pared to act if needed to save
the U.S. auto industry from col-
lapse.
The price for a barrel of oil,
however, finished lower on an-
other round of poor economic
news that showed consumers
cutting back on spending for a
record fifth straight month. Light,
sweet crude fell $1.70 to settle at
$46.28 on the New York Mercan-
tile Exchange.
SEC seeks to

salvage assets
NEW YORK - The implosidn
of a Wall Street firm whose
owner is accused in a $50 billion
swindle left regulators scram-
bling to seize control of its assets
Friday as dozens of investors
worried that they had gone from
rich to poor overnight.
The collapse of Bernard L.
Madoffs company came just
hours before his arrest Thursday
on a single securities fraud
count. Madoff, who allegedly told
his employees he was running a
"giant Ponzi scheme," was freed
on $10 million bail.


Feds shut
Georgia bank
NEW YORK - Regulators on
Friday closed Haven Trust Bank,
marking the 24th U.S. bank fail-
ure this year, and the fifth in
Georgia.
The Federal Deposit Insur-
ance Corp. was appointed re-
ceiver of the Duluth, Ga.-based
bank, which had'total assets of
$572 million and deposits of
$515 million as of Dec. 8.
The FDIC said BB&T Corp.
has agreed to assume all of the
A - ' f k


company to profitability, but
shares slumped as investors
were hoping for a bolder shift in
business strategy.
The Paris-based maker of net-
working equipment for fixed and
mobile telecommunications oper-
ators also intends to get rid of
half of the 10,000 contractors it
employs in measures aimed at
saving $991 million by the fourth

SORRY, KIDS



Santa ensnarled



by red tape of



government


H hopefully the recent
scurry over Santa's
transportation in local
parades didn't put Citrus County
on the naughty list.
The jolly CEO of the North
Pole was absent from his usual
position at the fi-
nale of last Satur- THE I|
day's Beverly Hills
Christmas Parade Santa go
due to a series of from loce
unfortunate cir-
cumstances, most OUR OF
centering around "Here
his mode of trans- Santa C
portation. anta
Children expect
to see Santa in any and all holi-
day parades and they really
don't care if he's riding in a fire
truck, on a Harley or on roller
skates. It doesn't matter if the
jolly holiday icon's vehicle is
provided by a government
agency, a car dealership or an
antique car club. And they cer-
tainly don't care whether or not
a county policy is possibly being
violated.
They just want their red-
suited hero to wave to them, belt
out the cherished "ho, ho, ho"
and allow the wonderment of
childhood fantasy to continue
along its merry way.
But sometimes adults just
have a way of getting so caught
up in details that the joy of the
season gets lost in the fine print.
Bureaucratic regulations are no-
torious for putting the brakes on
what appears to be a simple
process. However, regulations
deemed by the public as nit-
picky to the nth degree have
more than likely been put into
place to ensure someone's
health and well being. Certainly
they have come into being for


reasons other than making
Christmas parade procedures
ridiculously difficult.
Verifying employment creden-
tials of a red-nosed, overweight,
elderly man who claims to have
hundreds of little people from a
far-off land working
SSUE: for him warrants
close scrutiny, for
)es AWOL sure. And we
al parade, should be apprecia-
tive of any policy
PINION: that protects St.
Coes Nick from a
lomes whiplash or a neck-
"aus." breaking free fall
from a fire truck
going 5 mph that could have se-
rious impact on his demanding
duties on Dec. 24.
It is unfortunate that a solu-
tion could not be forthcoming
prior to the launching of the
Beverly Hills parade. No one
ever intended thecontroversy
would eventually lead to Santa's
no-show.
But we do have it from very
good sources that Santa will
most definitely be appearing in
today's Inverness parade and in
tomorrow's Citrus Springs pa-
rade!
And he will also be showing up
in various other events in Citrus
County - on land and on sea;
stationary and moving; day and
night; sitting and standing; with
Mrs. Claus or solo. It still re-
mains in the best interest for all
who welcome St. Nick to their
joyous occasions that he be of-
fered safe accommodations and
provisions and that all existing
local policies regarding appro-
priate transportation of elves
are adhered to. (And some cook-
ies and a glass of milk wouldn't
be a bad idea, either.)


Time for creative


Lawmakers busy drafting the
big jobs bill for President
Obama's signature early next
year need to stay focused on two
things - fairness and creativity -
to think beyond the kind of tradi-
tional public-works program Presi-
dent-elect Obama has talked about,
even with his 21st-century addition
of "green" jobs. That kind
of stimulus package
would do hardly anything
for the 46 percent of the
labor force that is female.
That's- where fairness " .7
comes in. A bill centered
on construction projects
also does nothing about a .
major economic issue *
facing many families - Cokii
the price of health care. Steven
Congress can fix both of
those problems by look- ,--" *'
ing to a bill passed dur- VO1
ing another - dire
economic downturn 25 years ago.
After the 1982 election, with un-
employment topping 10 percent, a
lame-duck Congress convened to
pass an economic-stimulus plan.
While the House Appropriations
Committee penned provisions for
highways and bridges, plus a whole
lot of pork, the women in Congress
(and there were only 21 of them)
rose up to remind their colleagues
of the recent results. More women
had voted than men that November,
and it was their votes that had bol-
stered the House Democratic num-
bers for the next Congress, and
chipped away at the Republican
majority in the Senate.
A jobs bill would have to include
more than public works, the women
insisted, public service would have
to be in there as well. The women
also saw the congressional willing-
ness to spend money as an opportu-
nity to address another problem -
the growing numbers of homeless

and hungry people in the country,
many of them children. The Appro-
priations Committee responded by
writing a bill funding child care
centers and home health care work-
ers, among other measures, and es-
tablishing the Emergency Food and
Shelter Program.
When President Reagan threat-
ened a veto, the House
shelved the stimulus bill
until early the next year
when the new, more
- Democratic Congress
W S passed it handily Not
only was the package fair
- putting both men and
women to work in the
short run - but 25 years
and later the food and shelter
Roberts program can be counted
as a federal success story.
* .f Distressed families in
'ES more than 2,500 cities
and counties have turned
to it when they find themselves tem-
porarily without homes or food as a
result of natural disasters or eco-
nomic downturns. The program
also prevents homelessness by step-
ping in to pay a month's rent or
mortgage, or utility bills, in order to
tide a family over a rough economic
spot.
The creativity comes in the pri-
vate/public mix that runs the proT
gram. It's governed by a board made
up of nonprofit organizations like
the Red Cross and the United Way,
with a representative of the Federal
Emergency Management Agency as
its chair. Originally funded with $50
million in 1983, the food and shelter
program has now handed out more
than $3 billion directly to families
- with minimal administrative
costs and no bulky bureaucracy.
The new stimulus package could
serve as a similar lifeline for the 47
million Americans without health
insurance. As unemployment


thinking
grows, the problem of health cover-
age will grow with it, and women
will be affected worse than men. A
healthy woman who loses her in-
surance when she's laid off from a
job is likely to face bills up to 48 per-
cent more than a man of the same
age if she tries to buy private insur-
ance. That discrimination is still.
legal in most states.
Universal health coverage advo-
cates should jump on this opportu-
nity. A Congress willing to spend
money should send an infusion to
states struggling to pay for health.
services for lower-income families
and children. Those families would
then have more money to spend to
boost the economy, and states not
saddled with huge medical bills
could use their funds for other pro-
grams.
To cut down on costs, state health
care reformers have promoted dis-
ease prevention and increased pri-
mary care, to stave off the expense
of sophisticated procedures or hos-
pital stays. And that means jobs for
women, since nurse practitioners
and physicians' assistants often
provide first-line care.
Including health care in the eco-
nomic-stimulus package would go a
long way toward remedying the sex
bias that is inherent in a pure pub-
lic-works bill - it would help solve
the fairness problem. And it could
be an important first step toward
the goal of assuring every American
adequate medical care. All it takes
is some creativity. Let's see if the
Congress and the new president
can provide it.

Circling
I just finished watching the news
about the bailout of the Big Three
automakers. I also noticed that any
senator or representative who had a
foreign automaker in their state, they
don't want to vote for it. They want to
call bankruptcy. Who would buy any-
thing from a bankrupt company? And
besides that, when we need our bat-
tle tanks the next war, who's going to
make them? The automakers are the
only ones that can make them. If we
lose them, we're lost down the drain.
Call early, call often
Sounds like the majority of the
people out here, especially in Citrus
County, are dead set against the
bailout for the Big Three. There's an
easy way to try to handle that, and
that is to call your senator and con-
gressman. Their phone numbers are
in the front of the telephone book.
their Washington, D.C., number and
their local number's in there. But the
most important thing you can do,
which is to call those guys up and
really pitch a fit and tell them. And
they will take the message and
they'll get it to that person. We've


got to contact these people and
show them. If nobody contacts
them to discuss this issue, why
would they think there's a real issue
here in Citrus County? We've got to
drive them nuts with phone calls. So
if you want to really help and do the
job, this is the best way to handle it.
Call them up and call them up sev-
eral times if you have to, but raise
Cain with them so maybe they can
get the message and do something.
What about us?
I'm really amazed at the people in
this country, especially the au-
toworker unions. As I'm watching on
TV, they're picketing because they've
lost their jobs and they demand to be
bailed out and have their jobs back.
Well, you know what? What about
every one of us that have lost our
jobs due to the economy? We're not
getting bailed out. I'm just wondering
why I have to, when; I do go back to
work, why I'm going to have to pay
taxes for years to come that are
going to go help bail out just these
labor union guys. Excuse me, if the
government's going to bail out one
group of people, they'd better bail
,out everybody in the country.


Corrective action
In your Nov. 13 issue, I read a
letter from Armand Goulet of Her-
nando, complaining about the ex-
orbitant increase in sewer and
water fees. In agreeing with Mr.
Goulet's outrage, I would like to
add some additional information
about the insensitivity of the com-
missioners and the water and.
sewage department in enacting
these increases.
In September 2005,1 I attended a
budget hearing at which time the
rate increases were presented.
They were to be increased by steps
over five yeais. The net effect of
the increases would be a 34 per-
cent increase in water rates plus a
step-rate increase as usage in-
creased and an unbelievable 159
percent increase in sewage rates.
The only concession that the board
of commissioners made to those of
us who protested the severity of
the increase was to call for a re-
view of rates after three years.
Upon receiving the third year's
notice, I contacted the water de-
partment to determine whether the
review would be held. Their public
relations person had no knowledge
of this agreement but promised to
check and get back to me. Two
weeks later, with no response, I
wrote to the Board of County Com-
missioners and was referred to Mr.
Knight, director of water and
sewer resources. In the course of
several communications with Mr.
Knight in which I questioned why
present users should pay for the
expansion of the system, his re-
sponse was, "All investments must

come from existing customers."
It was finally agreed that a re-
view would be held at a budget
meeting this past summer. The
total review amounted to a brief
presentation by myself and another
Meadowcrest resident There was
no further discussion by the Board
of County Commissioners, and they
took no further action. This whole
process flies in the face of sup-
posed board policy that expansion
be paid for mainly by those benefit-
ing from the expansion.
It is my hope that the new com-
missioners will take some correc-
tive action before the fifth of these
increases is enacted next year, and
hopefully roll back the increases
that were enacted this year, since
three years of annual 5 percent
water and 21 percent sewage rate
increases should be more than


enough if, as Mr Goulet suggested,
appropriate departmental
economies are instituted.

Changes coming
Although your editorial board's
political endorsements were not
helpful, it was gratifying to learn
that 31,428 Citrus County residents
voted for a change. One wonders
with so many illiterates in our
midst how many were swayed by
your preference of the "status quo."
Are Citrus County people really
satisfied with the Republican legis-
lature's unfunded school mandates
and their anti-consumer House Bill
7135, which allow utility companies
to charge us up front for something
that may not come to pass?
While you clamored for the Legis-
lature to amend the anti-consumer
House Bill, perhaps you could have
asked them to do away with closed
primaries. The draconian system
discriminates against all people who
wish to vote for the best-qualified
candidate, rather than a party pick
Suzan Franks did well against
the well-funded special-interests
candidate, as did John Russell and
Carl Levine. As a past lawman, I
was encouraged to see Sandy
Hawkins' selection to replace the
retiring Circuit Court Judge Bar-
bara Gurrola. We still have a long
way to go battling bigotry, igno-
rance and religious zealots.
Changes are coming, like it or not!

BGC thanks
I would like to take this time to
thank the kids who are members of the
Boys & Girls Clubs and their families
for going above and beyond in the ef-
fort to collect much-needed food for
Citrus United Basket Through their ef-.
forts, we collected approximately 700
cans of food to give to families who
need it during these challenging times.
Part of what we want to accomplish
is that our kids come away with a sense
of belonging and a sense of usefulness.
Their efforts prove that we are on tar-
get to accomplish these goals.
Thank you, BGC members, for your
donation to the community at large
and for being a part of the solution.
Lori Pender
executive director, BGC of Citrus County

Hot Corner: COMMISSIONERS


Resign, resign, resign
I just read the Wednesday,
Dec. 10, editorial which says
the county needs deep
thinkers as commissioners. I
totally agree. Unfortunately,
with the exception of Gary
Bartell, all the other commis-
sioners can't think deep
enough to get past the build,
build, build model. They are
a shallow-thinking bunch. So
is the Chronicle, which touts
build, build, build. Where is
the water going to come
from, should be answered
first before developers are al-
lowed to build, build, build,
as your editorials continu-
ously espouse. And having a
facilitator at $100 an hour is
ridiculous. Four of them
should resign immediately.
Too busy to help?
I wonder if the commis-
sioner who's in District 1
needs to call a facilitator to


get those railroad tracks on
Dunklin Street in Citronelle
fixed. They've been that way
since every term he's served.
I tried calling his office and
he and his secretary are
never there. Maybe he's too
busy celebrating his re-elec-
tion or too busy with his con-
struction business.

Gutless'
Boy, do we have a gutless
county commission. Unbe-
lievable that they're going to
take a quick buck and de-
stroy the environment.
They're going to destroy
seven acres of coastal wet-
lands for what - another
big-box.store? Have they no-
ticed all the empty commer-
cial storefronts in this
county? Do we need another
big-box store at the cost of
our coastal wetlands and the
pollution of our rivers and
our drinking water? Our only


hope is the state will come in
and set these people
straight. They could have
their big-box store, just don't
destroy the wetlands. They
didn't have the guts to tell
the developer that, so now
the developer wins, the citi-
zens lose.

Corner store
Goodness, here it is, I'm
reading it again; another
super Wal-Mart. I just can't
believe that Sam Walton
would have wanted super
Wal-Mart to become what it
has become...There's one on
every corner. Why in the
world don't the commission-
ers of Citrus County try to
get something for an anchor
store like Costco or BJ's -
something that the citizens
of Citrus County would really
use and would be proud to
have. These commissioners
need to grow up.


No nitpicking
What's the hullabaloo? The
commissioners voted to hire
a facilitator for a few hundred
dollars. Sounds democratic
to me. We elected new com-
missioners to represent us,
knowing full well they had no
government experience. Any-
one in a new environment
needs to.gain a sense of di-
rection, sooner rather than
later, to be a solid contribu-
tor to the board. They worked
hard to win the people's vote
and are sincere about seeing
Citrus grow in the right direc-
tion. The couple hundred dol-
lars is well spent and could
well result in better vision
and good results for the
county. So give the commis-
sioners your support.
Derogatory comments will
only dampen their enthusi-
asm. You live in the best
country on Earth. Stop pick-
ing on the petty stuff.


Sound OFF


Free flag
This is in reference to the
family who had their flag
stolen. The Fleet Reserve As-
sociation would like to re-
place it without charge. Such
a patriotic family who have
served and are still serving
their country, certainly does-
n't deserve that kind of de-
grading action. Please call
344-0727 and we will deliver
a new one. Thanks for your
service to our country.
Baby daddys
I'd just like to say that if I
was in charge, I would change
the whole Welfare system and
just figure to make it rule that
every baby has a father.
These people shouldn't be
able to collect a dime until
they put a father's name on
that birth certificate: No baby
daddy's name, no Welfare
check. That would put a big
stop to it all. See how quick a
baby daddy's found.
Caution on bikes
Watched a man the other
day in Hernando on his bicy-
cle pull into the middle of
traffic in the middle lane and
wait for the light. He was
coming out of Chicken King.
As the light changed, this
man, he didn't want to go
right or left or straight; he
wanted to go to the other cor-
ner of the street. Instead of
just crossing the street with
his bike on foot, he decided
to sit in the traffic, tie up two
lanes of traffic, sitting out in
the middle of the intersec-
tion, endangering his life.
What are these bicyclists
thinking? Something needs to
be done about some of these
bicyclists who travel in the
middle of the street. They're
not licensed and they're not
supposed to be there ...
Important flight
Regarding the sheriff's heli-
copters flying over Pine
Ridge recently: That was in
response to a call that was
made to citizens to state that
a woman who was mentally
disabled was lost in an area
where there have been sight-
ings of panthers and black
bears. So this was very, very
justified for the woman's
safety. This is done normally
when somebody is lost, espe-
cially in the evenings.
Rubbish!
It's all about the code en-
forcer. I have a neighbor who
put all his brush in my other
neighbor's yard, even a gar-
den hose. We called the


county. The code enforcer
told us my neighbor can do
it. No wonder we have so
much rubbish laying around.
We used to have a clean
county. What is happening?
Just because there are snow-
birds, don't mean you can
dump on their property. And
nothing is being done, but
you harass the lady about
her ostrich.
Free cards
Please help. I have about
100 assorted greeting cards
collected over the years.
Someone may have use for
them. Call 344-2221 for free
pick-up. Free, it's free.
Big Four
I'd just like to say one
thing: NASA is the same way
the three automakers are.
They don't know how to man-
age. The spaceship could
have stayed up there another
day or come back a day
early. But, no, we're using
taxpayers' money. We've got
$2 million to spend to bring,
it back to Florida.
It's a ploy
This is a response to the
economic woes in the coun-
try. I think it's a ploy by big
business and the Republican
government to divide this
country into a two-class citi-
zenry and to put more jobs
overseas and to put more
money in the stockholders'
and CEOs' pockets and the
Republican congressmen's.
It's nothing but a ploy, O1K?
When are we going to wake
up and start bringing jobs
back to, this country and our
economic woes will go away.
There's so many jobs over-
seas, it's not even'funny. Like
Obama says, the people who
have jobs in this country will
get tax breaks, and the com-
panies that don't won't.


Stop stealing
To the person who is steal-
ing mail from the mailboxes
on Palmer Avenue: I hope
they know it's a federal of-
fense.
Pie in the face
I had the misfortune to
order a Thanksgiving pie -
two weeks in advance, mind
you - from a very famous
restaurant ... who's been in
business for years. When I
went there to pick up the pie,
they had sold it to someone
else, which I couldn't believe.
Then she offers me a blue-
berry pie, which I didn't want.
I said, "Fine, I'll take it," and
then she wants to charge me
for it. So-not only did she sell
my pie, but she wants to
charge me for the one I don't
even want. In the interest of
good business, you would
think she would let me have
the pie for nothing. Long story
short, she sells me a blue-
berry pie and we go to
Thanksgiving dinner, go to
serve the pie, and it's a cherry
pie, which three out of the 11
people are allergic to cherries.
Getting cold
It's cold out here. Is there
somebody in the county that
is collecting blankets or
coats or hats, maybe even
gloves? It's getting awful cold
out here and I'm looking for
something and I just can't
seem to find it. Most of the
places that I've tried have run
out of blankets and coats. Is
somebody else collecting
them?
Want to work
This is to the person who's
being sarcastic and thanking
Gov. Crist for spending all the
money: If you really needed
a job, there's jobs out there.
And you're probably the
same person who goes and


buys "made in China" items
from Wal-Mart and Kmart
and such, So you lead to the
problem. There's many of us
who have jobs because we
want to work and we care
about the environment, too,
and like to see the beauty,
and it all goes together.

Getting even
The developer of Brent-
wood, Who happens to be the
developer of Terra Vista, Cit-
rus Hills, is not getting even
with anybody by putting a
traffic light on a dead-end
street. What he's doing is
putting a traffic light where
his 100-plus million-dollar
homes are being built so they
won't have any trouble get-
ting onto (County Road) 486.
But the rest of us poor'suck-
ers living in Brentwood and
elsewhere will have trouble
getting onto (C.R.) 486, but
we didn't buy million-dollar-
plus homes, so he doesn't re-
ally care. That's in answer to
the question about the
builder of Brentwood getting
even with the homeowners of
Brentwood. Yes, he is getting
even with us.

Keeping the games
I'm a 17-year-old senior at
Lecanto High School. The
topic I have brought up
today is cutting high school
athletic games. I play bas-
ketball for the high school
team and the past two years
we have been getting cut
games every year. When I
was a freshman, we played
26 regular season games and
now it's down to 20 this sea-
son.
The state of Florida had
cut school budgets $355 mil-
lion statewide this year. The
cut is equal to $310 less for
each child. They are cutting
teachers, as well, because
our state just can't afford it
anymore. Our county (Cit-
rus) hasn't just cut teachers,
but they have also cut on our
basketball and other athletic
games. They said, "We don't
have the money to travel as
much."
My opinion is that we
shouldn't have to cut down
on our athletic games. Ath-
letes want to play games
more and not less. Some stu-
dents do better in school just
to play a sport they want to,
and if the games get cut,
that's going to make them
not want to do well anymore
after the season is over. So,
we should play as many
games as we can.
I think we should keep the
same amount of games, but
try and have more home
games. If we play more
home games, then that will
reduce the amount of travel-
ing. If that doesn't work,
then athletes and their
coaches should think of
some sort of fundraiser or
something.

Ensure proper care
As a teen, I believe that
__beingtreated for any reason
at a health department with-
out guardian consent should
not be allowed. Like many
other places, Citrus County
has health department
branches located in several
different areas. At these
branches, teens can go to
them without parental con-,
sent for any health reason.
For example, teens can go to
take pregnancy tests, get
checked for diseases, secure
birth control and many other
problems or services that
they would like to keep se-
cretafrom their legal
guardians.
My problem is that a par-
ent or guardian has the right
to know about the health
concerns of his or her son or
daughter. My concern is
when teens go to the health
department, they ask ques-
tions about any allergies,
shots received, injuries or
surgeries iri childhood and

School students as part

many other sensitive ques-
tions. In many cases, a teen
may be ignorant of the an-
swers to these questions. Al-
though not everyone will
agree with me, every teen
who goes to the health de-
partment must receive the
right prescription for his or
her needs, according to his
or her body.
To correct this problem, I
think that before any teen
under the age of 18 goes to
the health department, he or
she should have a parent's
signature or a guardian
present before he or she can
be examined. This will help
the teen receive theproper
advice and treatment. The
more information health de-
partment officials have, the
better care the patient will
receive.

Reduce gas taxes
Gas prices in the United
States are outrageous. I feel
that gas is way too expen-
sive. The gas prices affect
drivers in many ways. Some
effects are that people can't
drive wherever they need to
go, like work and the gro-
cery store without paying a
lot of money to fill up their
gas tanks. Another thing is
that people spend a lot of
their money on gas and can't
afford to buy other impor-
tant things like food and
housing.
I feel that some causes of
the gas prices are due to the
oil prices rising and the gas
taxes being so high. Unfortu-
nately, we cannot control the
price of oil produced over-
seas. However, we can con-
trol the taxes that we in this
country place on each gal-
lon. The federal gas tax is
18.4 cents per gallon, the
state gas tax is 14.5 cehts per
gallon and the local gas tax
is 6 cents per gallon. I think
a way to help drivers save
money on gas is to reduce or
eliminate gas taxes.
Rising gas prices will con-
tinue to hurt families, which
in return will continue to
hurt our economy. For all
the proposed stimulus pack-
ages our government is of-
fering businesses and banks,
the one true stimulus pack-
age which will help most
Americans is to reduce the
gasoline taxes on all levels.

Storm leaves 1.25M
without power
CONCORD, N.H.- An ice
storm to compare with some
of the Northeast's worst made
a mess of the region Friday,
leaving 1.25 million homes
and businesses in seven
states without power as it
forced schools to close and
toppled ice-laden trees and
power lines onto slippery
roads.
More than half of New
Hampshire's homes and busi-
nesses lost power, and it was
expected to take several days
to completely restore electric-
ity there and in other states.
The storm wreaked havoc
from Maine to Pennsylvania,
leaving a sparkling, ice-cov-
ered landscape that was too
destructive for many to find
beautiful.
"This is pathetic," said Bob
Cott of Portland, Maine, who
lost power. "I'm already sick of
winter and we have nine days
to go before it officially be-
gins."
SEC seeks to
salvage assets
NEW YORK - Federal reg-
ulators reached a deal Friday
with the Wall Street financier
accused of a $50 billion swin-
dle to freeze his company's
assets and appoint a receiver
to manage the firm's financial
affairs. The agreement came
as some investors feared their
life savings were wiped out.
The deal, agreed to sepa-
rately by Bernard L. Madoff
and his company, was ap-
proved later in the day by a
federal judge, said Alexander
Vasilescu, trial chief of the fed-
eral Securities and Exchange
Commission.

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico
- Soldiers shot to death a
pregnant 35-year-old woman
after she reportedly failed to
stop at a highway checkpoint
in the northern state of Chi-

day.
Silvia Arzate died after sol-

near the capital of Chihuahua,
which is experiencing a surge
of violence as drug gangs bat-
tle each other and authorities,
said the state prosecutors'
spokesman, Eduardo Es-
parza.
The circumstances sur-
rounding Thursday's shooting
remain unclear.
Esparza said Arzate, who
died of several gunshot
wounds, had been carrying a
cousin in her vehicle who had
been wounded in an earlier
gunbattle. Her mother was
also aboard, but was not in-
jured.
It was unclear if the cousin
had been a participant in the
earlier gunfight. Initial reports
suggested Arzate may have
been speeding in a bid to es-
cape.from another vehicle that
was following her.

Bush promises last-ditch rescue


GMto close

21 factories
Associated Press

WASHINGTON - With
Congress gridlocked and the
economy floundering, the
Bush administration de-
clared Friday it would step in
to prevent the "precipitous
collapse" of the U.S. auto in-
dustry and the disastrous loss
of hundreds of thousands of
jobs sure to follow.
A day after the sudden de-
mise of rescue legislation in
Congress, carmakers were
talking with the administra-
tion and the Federal Reserve
about how they could still get
the billions of dollars they say
they need to survive. The


talks included condi-
tions that automakers
would have to meet,
said GM spokesman !
Greg Martin.
The administration
said no decisions had 10C
been made on the size
or duration of the new Pres
bailout plan, or what Bu
type of concessions wants
might be demanded autorr
from the struggling
automakers, their workers,
stockholders or others.
In a reversal, the most
likely rescue option under
consideration involved bil-
lions of dollars originally tick-
eted for the bailout of the
financial industry. President
George W Bush had earlier
declared that money off-lim-
its to the beleaguered au-
tomakers.

Underlining its difficulties,
GM announced Friday it
would cut another 250,000 ve-
hicles from its first-quarter
production schedule - a
third of its normal output -
by temporarily closing 21 fac-
tories across North America.
The move affects most plants
in the U.S., Canada and Mex-
ico. Many will be shut the
whole month of January.


A short-term shock to the economy
Estimates show about 3 million jobs and $151 billion in personal
income would be lost in the first year if all three Detroit automakers
were to fail. Gradual increases in domestic production from interna-
tional automakers would lessen the impact over time.

Anti-smoking groups hope Obama will kick habit


President-elect could be role model


Associated Press

WASHINGTON - Of all
the things President-elect
Barack Obama needs right
now, one of them surely isn't
a new set of lofty expecta-
tions on his well-burdened
shoulders.
But recent attention to
Obama's on-and-off smoking
habit has pinned a new kind
of audacious hope to him.
Anti-smoking advocates are
counting on Obama as a role
model for others trying to
kick the habit, showing them
- and himself - that while
it's hard, all things are in-
deed possible in America.
More pressure? One imag-
ines the very thought might
send Obama back to the pri-
vacy of his yard to light up. In
seriousness, though, his fa-
miliar plight - a former
smoker who says he's quit,
but admittedly falls off the
wagon - is potentially "the
ultimate teachable mo-
ment," as one anti-smoking
advocate puts it.
"It's a wonderful opportu-
nity," says Cheryl Healton,
president of the American
Legacy Foundation, a Wash-


ington-based group that
seeks to prevent smoking
among young people. "The
president-elect is in a posi-
tion to help people under-
stand that it's difficult to
quit, and to encourage the 43
million adult Americans who
smoke to join him in his ef-
forts."
Obama can perhaps thank
Tom Brokaw for renewing
the chatter about his smok-
ing habit. On NBC's "Meet
the Press," Brokaw noted
Obama had "ducked" the
smoking question previously,
and asked if he'd indeed
quit, noting the White House
is a no-smoking zone.
"I have," Obama said.
"What I said was that there
are times where I have
fallen off the wagon."
"Wait a minute," said
Brokaw, "that means you
haven't stopped."
"Fair enough," Obama
said. "What I would say is
that I have done a terrific job
under the circumstances of
making myself much health-
ier. And I think that you will
not see any violations of
these rules in the White
House."


Hmm. Immediately his re- tion list, the nation's smokers

Plan an

example

for the world

Associated Press

BRUSSELS, Belgium -
European nations on Friday
dared the United States, Rus-
sia and China to follow their
lead on global warming after
agreeing on a plan to meet the
so-called "20-20-20" targets:
reducing greenhouse emis-
.. sins by 20 percent and en-
suring that 20 percent of
energy comes from wind, sun
and other renewable sources
by 2020.
But activists said the plan
was fatally weakened by a raft
ofconcessioans to eastern Eu-
rope and heavy industry at a
time of worldwide economic
crisis.
Stavros Dimas, the Euro-
pean environment commis-
sioner, said the package put
the 27-nation European Union
on a path to a low-carbon
economy
"We are the only region in
the world that is reducing
emissions," Dimas said on the
sidelines of a U.N. climate
conference in Poznan, Poland,
calling the bloc an example
that others should follow.
Environmentalists said the
concessions made the plan in-
effective.
"The deal is a disaster, it's
disgraceful," said Stephen
Singer, a climate specialist for
WWF International. "If the
world follows the example of
the EU, it is on a trajectory to
disastrous climate change."
The plan increased the
amount of emissions Euro-
peans could offset by sponsor-
ing green projects in
developing countries. Armed
with that opt-out, Singer said
Europe's actual emissions re-
ductions would be a mere 4
percent, not the 20 percent
the EU claims.
The Brussels summit coin-
cided with the end of a two-
week, 190-nation U.N.
conference in Poznan that
worked on a global climate
treaty to be adopted next year
in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The treaty would replace the
expiring Kyoto Protocol,
which required the EU and
other industrial countries to
cut carbon emissions by an av-
erage 5 percent by 2012.
The EU leaders held out an
inducement to the Poznan ne-
gotiators: If a global climate
deal can be reached in Copen-
hagen, the EU will go even
further, cutting its greenhouse
gases by 30 percent by 2020.
President George W. Bush
has refused to accept manda-
tory restrictions on the U.S.
economy intended to cut car-
bon emissions, both as out-
lined in the Kyoto accord
and those now being consid-
ered.

Heisman race finally has some suspense


No clear winner inpack-ofQBs


Associated Press
NEW YORK - In recent
years, the Heisman Trophy
ceremony has been about as
suspenseful as Florida vs.
The Citadel. Even before it
started, the outcome was
never in doubt.
Southern California's Reg-
gie Bush in 2005 and Ohio
State's Troy Smith in 2006
took home their Heismans
after two of the biggest land-
slides in the award's 73-year
history. And it was no shock
last year when Florida quar-


terback Tim Tebow became
the first sophomore to win
the big bronze statue.
Tebow's back in Manhattan
for another Heisman handout,
looking to make it two in a row
on Saturday night, but this
time if his name - or Sam
Bradford's or Colt McCoy's -
is called, he won't have to pre-
tend to be surprised.
"I think this year, no one
really knows," said Bradford,
Oklahoma's prolific passer.
"It's going to be a close race."
Bradford, who leads the na-
tion in passer rating (186.3)


and TD passes (48), is
the slight favorite
going into the festivi-
ties at the Nokia The-
atre in Times Square,
according to Stif- \
fArmTrophy.com, a
Web site that polls_
some of the 925 Heis- T
man voters and has Tel
successfully predicted
the last six winners.
Most of those have been
pretty easy, though the site
also boasts of getting within
2.9 percentage points of the
winning vote, on average.
As of Friday afternoon, the
site had Bradford projected
to receive 1,687 points,


McCoy 171

Tebow 1,446.

Associated Press
TAMPA - Tampa Bay quarter-
back Jeff Garcia was limited dur-
ing practice Friday because of a
right calf strain and is listed as
questionable for Sunday's game at
Atlanta.

cerned that Garcia
has been limited in practice this
week
"The guy's a veteran player. We
never like to see a guy not prac-
tice, particularly at that position,
but he's an experienced guy,"
Gruden said. "He did take some
reps (Thursday) and the day be-
fore, so he has participated to a
degree. This is just a tough situa-
tion right now, but we're hopeful
he can play"
Garcia was benched following a
season-opening loss at New Or-
leans. He regained the starting job
when Griese was injured in Week 5
and has led the Bucs to a 6-2 record
since. Last Monday's 38-23 loss to
Carolina dropped Tampa Bay (9-4)
out of a tie, for first place in the
NFC South.
Griese hasn't played since hurt-
ing his elbow on Oct 5. However he
practiced this week and is throw-
ing the ball well.
"In my opinion he was full-go.
He looked sharp today and I'm re-
ally encouraged to have him back,"
Gruden said of Griese. "He's a
good quarterback and Luke Mc-
Cown's a player, too. We're hoping
Jeff's ready to go, and I'll be opti-
mistic on that."

Burned, Yankees reach 5-year deal


B2 s TURDAYDECEMB 8


Associated Press

NEW YORK - The New
York Yankees reeled in an-
other pitcher with a rich
offer, reaching agreement
with free agent A.J. Burnett
on $82.5 million, five-year
contract Friday
CC Sabathia and the Yan-
kees made a deal for $161
million over seven years on
Wednesday during the winter
meetings. After missing the
playoffs following a 13-year
run, the Yankees again
showed they were more than
willing to shell out big bucks
for pitching.
Burnett's agreement, was
confirmed by the office of his
agent, Darek Braunecker.
The pitcher still needs to
take a physical before the
deal is completed.
"I can sense the excitement
and the confidence that's
spreading around the entire
organization about what
we're getting done and what
we may get done still," Yan-
kees co-chairman Hank
Steinbrenner said earlier
Friday, before Burnett's deci-
sion became known. '"A rising
tide lifts all boats, and the
confidence and the excite-
ment right now among the
team and the organization is
contagious."
Burnett joins a rotation
that also includes holders

titte and has looked at Ben
Sheets as an alternative.
"I think it has the makings
of a great offseason, and
clearly our players do, too,"
Steinbrenner said.
Burnett won 10 of his last
12 decisions and finished 18-
10 with a 4.07 ERA for
Toronto. He set career highs
in- wins, strikeouts (231) and
innings (221 1-3).
After the season, the 31-
year-old righty opted out of
his $55 million, five-year con-
tract with the Blue Jays and
became a free agent. He had
two years and $24 million left
on his deal with Toronto.
Burnett has done espe-
cially well against AL East ri-
vals Boston and the Yankees.


NBA


He went 3-1 with a 1.64 ERA
in five starts against the Yan-
kees this year; he is 5-0 life-
time vs. the Red Sox.
Burnett, however, has been
plagued by injuries over the
years and has made several
trips to the disabled list with
elbow and shoulder troubles.
He was fine this season and
made a career-best 35 starts.
Atlanta was among the
teams that also pursued Bur-
nett. With the Yankees and
their $1 billion-plus new ball-
park, he would join a rotation
that includes Sabathia,
Chien-Ming Wang and Joba
Chamberlain.
Wang was hurt for most of
this season and Mike Mussina
retired after winning 20


games. Andy Pettitte remains
in the mix, if he and the Yan-
kees want to work out a deal
for him to return. Ben Sheets
and Jake Peavy were among
the other aces that drew in-
terest from the Yankees.
Burnett began his major
league career with Florida in
1999 and joined Toronto as a
free agent for the 2006 sea-
son. He is 87-76 overall with a
3.81 ERA.
Phillies reach
deal with Ibanez
PHILADELPHIA -The
Philadelphia Phillies reached a
preliminary agreement with out-
fielder Raul Ibanez on a $31.5
million, three-year contract.
The agreement is subject to
,Ibanez passing a physical, two
people familiar with negotiations
said Friday, speaking to The As-
sociated Press on condition of
anonymity because the contract
was not yet finalized.
The 36-year-old Ibanez, who
takes over in left field from Pat
Burrell, batted .293 last season
for Seattle with 43 doubles, 23
homers and 110 RBIs.
A left-handed hitter, Ibanez
batted .305 against lefty pitchers
last season and .288 against
righties.
He was selected by the
Mariners in the 36th round of the
1992 amateur draft and was
signed by the Kansas City Roy-
als as a free agent before the
2001 season. He returned to the


Mariners in 2004.
Ibanez drove in 100 or more
runs during each of the last three
seasons in Seattle.
Matt Clemens
signs with Jays
TORONTO - Former All-Star
right-hander Matt Clement
agreed Friday to a minor league
contract with the Toronto Blue
Jays and was invited to spring
training.
He went 13-6 with a 4.57 ERA
in 32 starts in his All-Star season
in 2005 with the Boston Red
Sox. Clement has not pitched in
the majors since 2006 because
of shoulder problems.
The 34-year-old Clement is
87-86 with a 4.47 ERA in nine
major league seasons with San
Diego, Florida, the Chicago
Cubs and Boston.
Clement signed a one-year,
$1.5 million deal with St. Louis
last winter, but was released
after 16 minor league appear-
ances, including four starts.
Gaudin, Cotts
agree with Cubs
CHICAGO - Right-hander
Chad Gaudin agreed Friday to a
$2 million, one-year contract with
Chicago Cubs and left-hander
Neal Cotts accepted a $1.1 mil-
lion, one-year deal.
The pitchers avoided salary
arbitration with the agreements,
which were announced on the
day teams had to decide


whether to offer 2009 contracts
to players.
Gaudin was acquired from
Oakland as part of a six-player
deal on July 8 that also brought
Rich Harden to Chicago. Gaudin
went 9-5 with a 4.40 ERA in 50
games, including 4-2 with a 6.26
ERA in 24 relief appearances for
the Cubs.
The 26-year-old has also
pitched for Tampa Bay and
Toronto. He has a 28-25 career
record with a 4.45 ERA.
Cotts went 0-2 with a 4.29
ERA in 50 relief appearances
last season - his second with
the Cubs.
D-Backs acquire
Schoeneweis
NEW YORK - The New York
Mets traded left-hander Scott
Schoeneweis to the Arizona Dia-
mondbacks on Friday, cutting
loose one of the most maligned
members of last season's shaky
bullpen.
Schoeneweis went 0-3 with a
blown save and a 5.40 ERA in
September as the Mets col-
lapsed down the stretch for the
second straight year. New York,
which had 29 blown saves in 72
chances last season, overhauled
its bullpen at the winter meetings
by signing free-agent closer
Francisco Rodriguez and acquir-
ing J.J. Putz from Seattle.
Schoeneweis was 2-6 with a
3.34 ERA in 73 games - includ-
ing 1-4 with a 4.66 ERA after the
All-Star break.

the Pistons forced 12 turnovers on
their way to a 63-57 halftime lead.
Celtics 94, Hornets 82
BOSTON - Paul Pierce
scored 28 points and Kevin Gar-
nett had 19 points and 10 re-
bounds on Friday night to lead
the Boston Celtics to their 14th
consecutive victory, 94-82 over
the New Orleans Hornets.
The defending NBA champions
took the lead with a 17-4 run early
in the third quarter and never
trailed again while improving to a
league-best 22-2 this season.


Chris Paul had 20 points and
14 assists for the Hornets, while
David West had 23 points and
14 rebounds.
After trailing by as many as 14
points in the fourth quarter, New
Orleans cut it to 89-82 before the
Celtics put it away, thanks in part
to an alley-oop from Ray Allen to
Garnett that made it an 11-point
game with 1:43 left.
Grizzlies 103, Bulls 96
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Rudy Gay
scored 29 points and Hakim War-
rick added 21, both matching their
season highs, as the Memphis
Grizzlies won their third straight
with a 103-96 victory over the
Chicago Bulls on Friday night.
Warrick's 12 points in the
fourth quarter kept the Bulls at
bay, snapping Chicago's two-
game winning streak. The win
marked the first time the Griz-
zlies won three straight under
Marc lavaroni, in his second sea-
son as their coach.
The game featured the top two
rookie scorers, O.J. Mayo of
Memphis with a 20.8 average,
while Chicago's Derrick Rose
was averaging 18.3. Both were
kept under those numbers, as
Mayo scored 14 points and Rose
finished with 12 points and a
season-high 11 assists.

NEWARK, N.J. - Patrik
Elias scored with 8:31 left to
rescue the New Jersey Dev-
ils, who squandered a four-
goal lead yet managed to
finally beat the New York
Rangers, 8-5 on Friday night.
Just 11 seconds after Ryan
Callahan got the Rangers
even at 5, Elias put the Devils
in front again. Brian Gionta
built the lead back up to two
goals just 1:35 later and gave
New Jersey its first regular-
season win over the Rangers
in 12 tries.
The Devils' second on-
slaught of the game culmi-
nated with Jamie
Langenbrunner's goal with
4:53 remaining, capping a
spurt in which they scored
three times in 3:38.
New Jersey appeared to
have things well in hand with
a three-goal second period
that created a 5-1 lead. The
Devils stormed in front by
taking advantage of the
Rangers' putrid power play
that generated two short-
handed goals for New Jersey
and nothing for New York in
nine opportunities.
Travis Zajac scored twice,
Gionta had a goal and three
assists, Dainius Zubrus and
Elias both added a goal and
two assists, Langenbrunner
had one of each, and Zach
Parise set up four goals in the
Devils' highest-scoring game
this season.
Nikolai Zherdev had a goal
and three assists for the
Rangers.
Capitals 5, Senators 1
WASHINGTON - Inspired by
the return of Sergei Fedorov and
Mike Green - or perhaps by the
presence of a 6-foot-7 Web site
producer sitting on the bench an
emergency backup goalie - the
Washington Capitals maintained
their home-ice dominance Friday
night with a 5-1 victory over the


Ottawa Senators:
Alexander Semin, Brooks Laich
and Green all scored for the first
time this month, Alex Ovechkin
got his 16th and 17th goals of the
season, and Brent Johnson made
32 saves for the Capitals. John-
son won his fourth straight deci-
sion as Washington improved to
an Eastern Conference-best 12-1-
1 at the Verizon Center,. : .: :!

BUFFALO, N.Y. - lan White
broke a tie with 7:56 left in the
third period, and Vesa Toskala
made 24 saves in the Toronto
Maple Leafs' 2-1 victory over the
Buffalo Sabres on Friday night.
Jeremy Williams also scored
to help Toronto improve to 11-12-
6 with its second straight victory.
Toni Lydman scored for the
Sabres, and Ryan Miller made
31 saves. The loss snapped the
Sabres' winning streak at three.
White gave the Maple Leafs
their first lead of the game with
his fifth of the season, letting go
a harmless-looking wrist shot
from the left point that wound up
bouncing off the ice and over
Miller's left shoulder.
Bruins 7, Thrashers 3
ATLANTA- Phil Kessel had a
goal and two assists to extend
his NHL-best points streak to 14
games, and the Boston Bruins
scored four times on their first
five shots in a 7-3 victory over
the Atlanta Thrashers on Friday
night.
Kessel had an assist in the
first-period spree, then added a
power-play goal and another as-
sist in the third period. He leads
Boston with 18 goals and has 11
assists.
Defenseman Mark Stuart had
two goals for the Bruins, scoring
the first and last goals to help
Boston match its highest-scoring
game of the season. Zdeno
Chara, Michael Ryder, Stephane
Yelle and Milan Lucic also
scored.

Saints stop talking playoffs


Associated Press
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees looks down Thurs-
day as he walks on the field during the first quarter against the
Chicago Bears in Chicago. The Saints lost, 27-24, in overtime.


Chicago downs

New Orleans

on Thursday

Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS - The
New Orleans Saints re-
mained consistent in at least
one regard.
After asserting they would
have to win their last four
games to make the playoffs,
Saints players starting talk-
ing as if they had been elimi-
nated following a 27-24
overtime loss in Chicago.
"We don't have a chance,
but we're still going to play
like it in the last two games
because that's the makeup of
the team," linebacker Scott
Shanle said.
Technically, the Saints (7-7)
remained alive for the post-
season following Thursday
night's loss. But they find
themselves on the brink of
elimination because they've
struggled with consistency on
the field. Despite having one
of the NFEs top offenses,
ranked first in yards per
game (401.6), New Orleans
has found it agonizingly
tough to string together wins.
Only once this season have
the Saints won two straight-
their longest winning streak
A general pattern of alternat-
ing wins and losses left them
hovering around .500 in a
year when the NFC appears


too tough for a team with
fewer than 10 victories to
make the playoffs.
Injuries to numerous regu-
lars may be partly to blame.
Reggie Bush sprained his
knee during the loss in
Chicago while being bumped
out of bounds. Bush already
had missed four games earlier
this season with a knee injury.
Marques Colston, the
Saints' top receiver the pre-
vious two seasons, missed
five games with a thumb in-
jury and has only recently
begun to regain his old form.
Tight end Jeremy Shockey
missed three games because
of sports hernia surgery. He
has been playing in pain all
season and does not have a
touchdown.
Recovering from a second
major knee surgery, Saints
all-time rusher Deuce McAl-
lister hasn't been effective
enough - at least in coach
Sean Payton's mind - to
merit more than a reserve
role behind Bush and Pierre
Thomas. After dressing for
the first 13 games, McAllister
missed the Chicago game fol-
lowing a death in his family
On defense, season-ending
injuries took out four starters:
defensive end Charles Grant,
safety Kevin Kaesviharn and
cornerbacks Tracy Porter and
Mike McKenzie.
The kicking game was an-
other problem. Martin Gra-
matica, currently on injured
reserve (groin), missed a late
field goal that would have
given New Orleans the lead


in a two-point loss at Denver.
He missed another late field
goal in a three-point loss to
Minnesota.
Four of the Saints' seven
losses have been by three
points or less. They also
squandered a nine-point,
fourth-quarter lead in a 29-24
loss at Washington.
After all those blown
chances, the Saints remain
technically alive in the play-
off hunt. Yet they need so
much help that they don't
seem interested in contem-
plating such scenarios.
When asked about the
prospect of missing the play-
offs a second straight season,
linebacker Scott Fujita re-
sponded, "Yeah, that's very
frustrating."
"We're still professionals,
we get paid to do a job and
we'll play these last two
games," he added.
The Saints had seen the
Chicago game as a launching
pad back into the playoff con-
versation. Coincidentally,
their season had ended in
Chicago the past two years.
Their 2006 season ended
with a loss there in the NFC
championship game. The
Saints were formally elimi-
nated from the 2007 playoffs
with another loss in Chicago
in their regular-eason finale.
New Orleans nearly broke
the streak Thursday night,
taking a late lead on Drew
Brees' touchdown pass to
Colston, Kyle Orton drove the
Bears for a tying field goal in
the final seconds. Chicago


won the overtime coin toss,
then safety Roman Harper
was flagged for interference
on a deep, third-down incom-
pletion, putting Chicago in
position for a field goal.
After Robbie Gould's kick
split the uprights, the Saints
again left a frigid Soldier
Field with their playoff hopes
dashed.
"It's frustrating that it has
worked out like that for three
years in a row," Shanle said.
"It's disheartening to feel this
way again in this locker room."
Three results in particular
this weekend could make
what's left of New Orleans'
season a little more interest-
ing: the Giants beating Dallas
(8-5), Tampa Bay beating At-
lanta (8-5) and Cleveland win-
ning Monday night against
Philadelphia (7-5-1). If those
results play out, the Saints
would trail Chicago (8-6), Dal-
las, Atlanta and possibly
Washington (7-6) by one game
in the standings with two
games to play for the last
wild-card berth.
The Saints then would
have a potentially meaning-
ful game at Detroit, which
might still be winless, adding
further intrigue. Either way,
tight end Billy Miller said the
Saints have no business let-
ting up.
"I don't care who you play
for or what your record is,
you're playing to win,"
Miller said. "The playoff sit-
uation may be out of our
hands, but we're still playing
to win games."


BCS: Get ready, get set... wait Orange

Meyer, Stoops face month ofhype

before battling for title in Miami


Associated Press

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -
Flanking either side of the
Bowl Championship Series
trophy, Bob Stoops and Urban
Meyer shook hands for more
than a minute Wednesday af-
ternoon as more than two
dozen photographers clicked
and commanded away.
"Coach, over here!"
"Bigger smiles, coaches!"
'"A little closer, gentlemen!"
Finally, someone decided
the photo op had lasted long
enough, and Stoops and
Meyer quickly made their
way out a side door. The BCS
championship game might
still be four weeks away, but
the hype for the matchup be-
tween Stoops' Oklahoma
Sooners and Meyer's Florida
Gators is already starting in
earnest in South Florida.
"It's a four-week buildup,"
Meyer said. "How do you in-
sulate your team? I wish we
could, but it's not going to
happen."
Every other coach in major
college football would love to
have that problem, of course.
But it'll only be Oklahoma
and Florida in Miami on Jan.
8, where only one coach will
be photographed next to that
crystal football at night's end,
and in either case that coach
will be celebrating his second
national title.
Florida finished the regular
season ranked No. 1, one spot
ahead of Oklahoma, in the
final Associated Press poll,
which does not factor into the
BCS formula. Oklahoma was
No. 1 in the final BCS rank-
ings, with Florida No. 2.
"I'm just really honored
and excited to be here,"
Stoops said. "Everybody in-
volved with this bowl game is
just first-class and coming to
the city of Miami is always a
fantastic experience. We're
excited about it... it's exciting
for the competition and chal-
lenge of it."
Stoops has recruited South


Florida heavily before, al-
though his current team has
only one player from the Sun-
shine State.
Meanwhile, Florida has 13
players from the greater
Miami area alone, and Meyer
said the same number were
part of high school state cham-
pionship victories at Dolphin
Stadium, where the BCS title
will be decided this year.
"I hope it's a home-field
advantage," Meyer said. "I'd
be disappointed if it wasn't a
tremendous showing, but I
know Oklahoma has a great
tradition of traveling fans; as
well. In the back of our
minds, even in the front of
some of our minds, this was
our target to get to Miami -
because it's our home state,
because of recruiting, be-
cause of all of the above."
Even as his plane landed at
the airport near Fort Laud-
erdale after the quick flight
south from Gainesville, Meyer
had his first official problem
of bowl season: He's losing his
offensive coordinator
Dan Mullen was named as
the new coach at Mississippi
State on Wednesday. Meyer
said he isn't sure what
Mullen's availability for the,
championship game will be.
"It complicates things a lit-
tle bit," Meyer said.
Mullen's hiring comes as
good news to Stoops. His offen-
sive coordinator, Kevin Wilson,
was also presumed to be very
high on Mississippi State's list
of potential replacements for
Sylvester Croom.
So there's another tie that
binds these two coaches
whose hometowns are about
an hour apart in Ohio.
"We had to come down
here to enjoy the weather,"
Stoops said. "It's a lot better
than going up to northern
Ohio right now."
Stoops was Florida's
choice to replace Steve
Spurrier when the ol' ball
coach left Gainesville, but the
former Gators assistant

tions Wednesday about the upcoming BCS championship game during a press conference in Hol-

wound up declining, saying
he had everything he wanted
at Oklahoma.
Three years later, when
Florida began courting
Meyer, Stoops got another
phone call.
It was Meyer, asking for an
unbiased opinion of the uni-
versity and the program.
Meyer took the job, won a na-
tional championship in his
second season, and now is


looking for his second crystal
football in three years.
"Unfortunately, I helped
get him there," Stoops said.
Ohio roots are not the only
similarity with Stoops and
Meyer.
Both are among the win-
ningest active coaches, in
terms of percentage, in the
game. Both are leading two of
the nation's power programs,
and both used the phrase


"staying in the moment"
when describing how they'll
ask their teams to handle a
month of BCS buildup.
"It's keeping your focus on
this game, on the challenge of
playing Florida," Stoops said.
"And be at your best, whether
it's in practice, attention to
detail in meetings, and keep-
ing yourself in the present
time as opposed to what
comes next."


JoePa eases back at Penn St., preps for Rose Bowl


Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -
The brown khakis were
slightly rumpled, and the
Nike sneakers were the
trademark jet black A cane,
however, was nowhere in
'sight when Joe Paterno
walked into the auditorium
with nary a limp.
Nearly three weeks after
hip replacement surgery,
the Hall of Famer is easing
back into his old routine at
the job he's had 43 years:


coaching No. 6 Penn
State (11-1).
And there's quite a
workload awaiting:
preparing the Nittany
Lions for a glitzy New
Year's Day matchup
against No. 5 South-
ern California at the Joe P
Rose Bowl.
He'd like to coach that
game from the sideline,
where he hasn't been able to
work since the Sept. 27 win
over Illinois because of the
injury. Paterno said he won't


* make that decision
until he tests his legs
on the practice field
closer to the game.

turns 82 on Dec. 21.

I really do," he said
Friday. "It's tough when you're

He has been back on his


feet at times at practice,
though on Friday he spent
the first 20 minutes in a golf
cart with a cane close by, of-
fering soft advice.
He pitched a walker two
days after surgery. The cane
only comes out if he's going to
be on his feet for too long, he
said.
Away' from the constant
prodding and poking of doc-
tors, Paterno can concentrate
once again on coaching,
though one of the biggest is-
sues this week has been a


player who won't be with the
team in Pasadena.
Pat Devlin's decision to
transfer left the Nittany
Lions with just one scholar-
ship quarterback, senior Paul
Cianciolo, behind Daryll
Clark headed into the bowl
game. Clark has turned into a
topflight starter in the tough
Big Ten.
Receiver Derrick Williams
has also lined up at quarter-
back a few times this season
on running plays.

With 4.4 seconds remain-
ing, the pressure now shifted
to Scott to convert a one-and-
one from the charity stripe
and he met the challenge in
draining both ends to give
West Port a four-point lead.
Connors' three narrowed
the gap to a single point, yet
Citrus shot just 2-of-12 before
that moment in the last eight
minutes.
"We went cold in the fourth
quarter," Densmore said.
"They did a nice job (on de-
fense) and they're big. It's
hard to get anything offen-
sively against them."
The first three quarters
were as evenly matched as a
contest could be. Although it
was a low-scoring affair, the
two teams kept matching
each other score for score.
The Wolfpack held a three-
point advantage at halftime,
which the Hurricanes closed
in the third frame.
Jason Pimental, a 6-foot-7
swingman, led all players in
scoring by dropping 20 points
for West Port. Although Pi-
mental was the tallest player

River coach Steve Feldman
said. 'As soon as they (Seven
Rivers) got into that bonus,
they were money from the
line."
Seven Rivers was forced to
adjust as well, as it loosened
its pressure defense. As a re-
sult, the Pirates got better
looks on the offensive end'
and shot a slightly better per-
centage than the Warriors in
the first half but made nine
less free throws and trailed
by seven at the break

"I feel for him. Obviously,
they have a great argument
for being in the champi-
onship game," Bradford
said.
"McCoy, who set a major
college record by complet-
ing 77 percent of his passes
this season, said the Long-
horns have put the BCS
mess behind them, thanks to
coach Mack Brown. His
message to the Longhorns:
"Let's play the best game
we've played all year," in
the Fiesta Bowl against
Ohio State.
The impending meeting
between Bradford's Sooners
and Tebow's Gators on Jan.
8 in Miami was also not a
topic of conversation.
"Definitely pleasure, no
business at all," Bradford
said.
Or business as usual for
Tebow.
He can become the only
the second two-time winner

on the court, he did his dam-
age almost exclusively from
the perimeter.
Pimental nailed six jump
shots from the 15-18 foot
range over the course of the
evening and finished 9-of-16
from the floor.
"Jason is a big 6-7 kid but
he's awfully skilled," Liven-
good said. "He's really devel-
oped his perimeter game and
because he's so big, people
don't close in on him the way
they should."
A one-handed dunk by Pi-
mental opened the third
quarter for West Port and
gave the team a 27-22 lead.
Citrus, however, made the
next seven-and-a half min-
utes theirs.
Geoffrey Labrador scored
a bucket on a goaltending call
on the Wolfpack and Trent
Shelton dropped in a bank
shot after a spin move toward
the basket and then hit
Labrador with a no-look pass
for a wide-open layup to give
the Hurricanes a 28-27 ad-
vantage.
Pimental hit a jumper from
15 feet to regain the lead but
Citrus fired off an 8-2 run (all
on jump shots) to grab the ad-
vantage at 36-31.
West Port tied the game at
38 on a 24-foot 3-pointer by
John McNair with two sec-


dling our press tonight,"
Ervin said.
The Warriors (5-2 overall)
extended their lead by two
points in the third quarter
despite two 3-pointers by the
Pirates' Travaughn Brooks,
who finished with 13 points
in the game.
Crystal River (0-6 overall)
quickly got its deficit down to
six in the fourth quarter fol-
lowing a 3-pointer from Brian
Hammerle. Brooks later hit
another three to cut it to five
but that's as close as the Pi-
rates ever got. Gage and Ty

"It seems like we expend a

contest only to see our energy

of the Heisman Trophy, join-
ing Ohio State's Archie Grif-
fin, who did it in 1974-75.
Tebow has spoken to Grif-
fin a couple of times about
handling the Heisman spot-
light, but said he hasn't
mulled over what it would
mean to become a member
of college football's most ex-
clusive club.
"That's not even some-
thing I think about," he said.
The 240-pound junior,
who has thrown 28 touch-
downs and only two inter-
ceptions, also tried to pass
along some advice to his fel-
low finalists about the Heis-
man experience.
"Just enjoy it, relax and
have fun," was Tebow's sug-
gestion, McCoy said. "What's
going to happen is going to
happen."
And for a change, we're
not sure what's going to
happen with the Heisman

onds left in the third. The
Wolfpack then dropped in the
first four points of the fourth
quarter to take a 42-38 lead it
would never yield.
Pullen, who led Citrus with
14 points and 12 rebounds,
hit a long shot from the.left
wing to pull the Hurricanes
within 42-40. Pullen's basket,
however, would be the last
time Citrus scored over the
next four minutes.
"What we start talking
about at the start of the fourth
quarter are stops," Liven-
good said. "If we got two or
three stops in a row, we'd
have a chance to win the
game."
The Wolfpack held a 46-40
margin before Pullen
dropped in two free throws
and Carter banked in a
bucket from short range. Cit-
rus trailed 46-44 with 41 ticks
left on the clock, but couldn't
get close enough in the end.
"I thought, certainly, the ef-
fort was there and we kept
ourselves in a position to
win," Densmore said. "If
(Scott) misses even one of
those free throws, we're
going to overtime."
Both teams play again at
7:30 p.m. on Tuesday: Citrus
travels to South Sumter while
West Port hosts Lecanto.

Growing up


'PK'


DAVE SIGLER/Chronicle
Larry Powers has been pastor of Inverness Church of God for more than 30 years. He, along with two of his children - Jon and Chara Celano -
shared some of the trials and tribulations facing pastors and their children growing up in the church.


Children talk about


living with pastor parents

Chronicle

T hey live in a fishbowl,
under a microscope, on top of a
pedestal.
They're assumed to be either
superhumanly religious or incorrigibly
rebellious - anything but normal, healthy kids.


"People definitely look at you different
when they find out you're a pastor's kid,"
said Jon Powers. "I had a boss say I'm
probably either a Jesus freak or a drug
addict."
Recently, the Chronicle asked local
PKs (pastors' kids) to come clean about
what life growing up in the parsonage is
really like.
Jon Powers, 34, and his sister Chara
Celano, 31, children of the Rev. Larry
Powers, pastor of Inverness Church of
God for the past 30 years, agreed to sit
down with their dad and tell all.
Another brother, Lance Powers, 36,
lives in Ocala.
"You hear the jokes," Celano said.


"PKs have the reputation of being trou-
ble."
"That would definitely be me," her
brother Jon said.
Pastor Powers told the story of Jon at
age 8 or 9 playing in the water fountain
outside the church when a church mem-
ber scolded him.
"You can't tell me what to do," the boy
told him. "I own this church."
Another time, when he was a teenager,
someone dared Jon to moon some of the
girls - so he did.
"That was by far the worst whipping
Jon ever got," his dad said.


Other PKs


speak out

The Chronicle recently asked local
"PKs" about their experiences growing
up as pastors' kids. Here's what three of
them had to say about the best and the
most challenging aspects of growing up in
the parsonage.
Barry Millet. 61, from Floral City, him-
self an ordained Seventh-day Adventist
minister, grew up the son of an evangelist.
He said the most difficult challenges in-
cluded: moving all the time and having to
make new friends and leaving old ones.
being held to a higher standard than
other kids, not having dad home on a
daily basis (and when he did come home,
the accumulated need for discipline had
to be administered) and being shipped off
to boarding school.
"'When I was about 5 or 6 we had to re-
cite a memory verse in front of the whole
church," Millet said. "I was the last one
on the program and when it came my
turn, I went as blank as a white sheet of
paper. No matter how hard I tried, that

NOTES


Me and

my potty

mouthli
Sitting at the table be-
hind my husband and
me, a young woman at a
local restaurant got my atten-
tion by dropping loud F-
bombs.
I know some Christians
would have cleared their
throats and announced,
"Young lady, as a Christian, I
find your language offen-
sive."
However, I tend to think
that's not helpful and makes
Christians look like fragile
weenies.
Besides, with the freedom
she used this word it obvi-
ously didn't mean anything to
her. What was once socially
taboo is increasingly becom-
ing mainstream and accept-
able. If you're surrounded by
coarse and profane language
it loses its power to shock and
offend.
Maybe her preferred word
of choice was the same as
saying "muddy" or "crunchy."
Just another adjective.
A few months ago, Chris-
tian writer and church youth
worker Holly Vicente
Robaina confessed her own
use of potty language on her
blogsite, www.
h-n-t.blogspot.com.
"Seems my generation con-
siders many naughty words to

numbers

,Editor's note: This is the
first of two columns on teens
ahd ethics.
Take comfort in this:
The items on the fol-
lowing "to do" list do
not apply to all teens today.
* Lie to your parents about
those wild weekend plans -
check
* Steal that scarf you want
at the mall - check
M Download that term
paper off the Internet and
add a few mistakes to confuse
the teacher-- check
* Inflate your volunteer
hours at your church's soup
kitchen to pump up that col-
lege application - check
The problem with the
Josephson Institute's latest
survey - the 2008 Report
Card on the Ethics of Ameri-
can Youth - is that it con-
tained so many bad numbers
that many readers were
tempted to pin an "all of the
above" verdict on most teens.
Consider the numbers on
stealing. Nearly a third of the
students surveyed - 29,760
in 100 randomly selected
.public and private high
schools - admitted stealing
from a store during the previ-
ous year. Also, 23 percent
said they stole from a parent
or relative. The numbers
were lower for honors stu-
dents and those who at-
tended religious schools, but
around 20 percent of them

Special Events
M The Nativity of Christ is a
feast day second only to Pascha
(Easter) in the Orthodox Church.
In contrast to the American way
of celebrating with parties before
the holiday, those days are a
time of fasting for Orthodox
Christians. The fast ends on
Christmas Eve. Christmas is
when we begin the celebration
for 12 days, ending with
Epiphany. This year St. Raphael
Orthodox Church will conduct a
Molieben service at 4 p.m. The
service will be followed by the
Holy Supper at 5 p.m. and Nativ-
ity Compline at 6:30. If you wish
to join us on Christmas Eve,


Places of worship that


offer love, peace


and harmony to all.

"The worst was being
caught doing something bad,"
Celano said. "We were always
getting in trouble for climb-
ing on the buildings."
Or they'd be horsing
around in church and during
his sermon their dad would
flash a signal - one finger,
two fingers.' Three fingers
meant a spanking when they
got home.
"So all through church
you're sitting there praying,
'Please God, let him forget,"'
Celano said.
Pastor Powers said he
never thought of his children
as "PKs," only as his chil-
dren.
"I never said, 'You're the
pastor's son or daughter and
more is expected of you,"' he
said.
He may not have, but his
children sometimes felt
pressure from people other
than their parents. In a tele-
phone interview, Lance Pow-
ers said he felt forced to
behave a certain way just be-
cause of his dad's position.
"Your behavior is a reflec-
tion on your parents' abili-
ties to raise a family and
everybody sees it," he said.
Jon Powers said he felt
more pressure from people
at the church than from his
parents, especially from the
church youth pastors.
"They'd say, 'You're the
pastor's kid; everybody's
watching you.' I was always
doing stuff wrong, so they
were right," he said.
"In seventh grade I real-
ized there was a completely
different way of life outside
the church," he said. "Before
that I thought everybody
prayed before every meal.
But in seventh grade I met a
kid and found out you could
cuss in front of his parents
and he had a pet bobcat."
He said living in small-
town Inverness compounded
the fishbowl life. "I'd be at
Wal-Mart and before I even

stole something from some-
one.
It's easy to criticize the
young, but it's also important
to know that they're learning
these behaviors from the
adults around them, said
Michael Josephson, founder
of the Los Angeles-based
ethics center.
"Did you lie about your
child's age to save money?
Did you provide your child
with a false excuse for miss-
ing school? Did you lie about
your address to get your child
into a better school?" he
asked in a commentary about
the survey. "Most of us stray
from our highest ethical am-
bitions from time to time;, but
we usually do so selectively,
convincing ourselves that
we're justified and that occa-
sional departures from our
ethical principles are incon-
sequential when it comes to
our overall character.
"Most of us judge ourselves
by our best actions and inten-
tions, but the children who
watch everything we do may
be learning from our worst."
The sobering numbers
leaped into headlines nation-
wide, while the researchers
said the truth was almost cer-
tainly worse - since 26 per-
cent of the participants
admitted that they lied on at
least one or two of the prickly
questions. Students took part
in the survey during class
sessions, with guarantees of
anonymity
Other results noted by the.
institute included:
* More then eight in 10 stu-
dents - 83 percent - admit-
ted that they lied to a parent
about an issue of some im-
portance, while 43 percent of
the students in public and'
private schools said that they
have lied to save money.
* In a 2006 survey, 60 per-
cent of the students said they


cheated on at least one test
and 35 percent cheated two
or more times. This year, the
numbers rose to 64 percent
and 38 percent on the same


got home, Mom and Dad
would know about it," he
said.
He added that his rebel-
lious period turned out to
make him stronger in his
faith now as an adult.
Lance Powers said he
went through a rebellious
phase once he left high
school and Citrus County, al-
though it was short-lived.
"Being a PK turned out to
be a good foundation, espe-
cially now that I have my
own kids," he said. "I always
hated devotions and memo-
rizing Scriptures, but now I
appreciate it - I still re-
member those same Scrip-
tures I hated memorizing at
the timee"
"Growing up a PK is defi-
nitely a blessing," Jon Pow-
ers said. "The best part was
all the love we got from the
church. I remember spend-
ing all day at the church on
Sunday, playing kickball
after church, the dinners on
the ground with tons of peo-
ple.
"I still think about that,"
he said. "It was so much
fun."
Asked what he would
change as a pastor raising a
family if he could start over,
Pastor Powers said he would
be there more for them.
"My biggest failure - and
I thought I was doing right at
the time - I couldn't do
enough for the church," he
said. "I'd come home late. I
missed a lot of their activi-
ties. I wish I could change
that. So now I'm always glad
to be with their children,
and I value my time with my
own children now as adults.
"You can't go back," he
said, "but you can go for-
ward."
"It's all been a blessing,"
Jon Powers said. "The one
thing about Dad, he was the
same at home as he was at
church, and that's not true
about some families where
they're one way at church
and way different at home.
God definitely blessed .the
way we grew up."

issues.
* The Internet makes pla-
giarism easy, with 36 percent
of the students confessing
that vice - up from 33 per-
cent in 2004.
* Self-esteem is not a prob-
lem, since 93 percent of the
students reported that their
ethics and character were
satisfactory and, in a popular
quote from the survey, 77 per-
cent said that "when it comes
to doing what is right, I am
better than most people I
know."
Buried deep in the survey
form was another question
that would be of special in-
terest to clergy and other re-
ligious leaders who work
with the young. When asked
if they had done "things in vi-
olation of my religious be-
liefs" during the past year, 48
percent affirmed a simple
answer - never. Another 15
percent confessed to one vio-
lation of their personal reli-
gious beliefs.
This survey is more proof
that something has gone
wrong with the way Ameri-
cans are teaching their young
people the meaning of right
and wrong, said evangelical
activist Charles Colson.
"Instead of being rooted in
an objective moral order that
exists independently of our-
selves, right and wrong are
subjective - they're the
product of the person's val-
ues. In that case, it makes
perfect sense that people can
lie, cheat and steal and still
be satisfied with their
ethics," he said in a radio
commentary.
"After all, they are not an-
swerable to God or the com-
munity, only to themselves.
The question isn't, 'How shall
we live?' but, 'How do I feel
about it?'"
Next time: The theological
content of "whatever."

Continued from Page Cl
memory verse would not come to
mind. Ashamed and horrified, I bolted
from the platform as fast as my little
feet would carry me. When I reached
the entrance doors of the church
building, I never even broke stride,
nearly taking the doors off of their
hinges."
Sharon Stine, 63, grew up as a PK
and went on to marry a pastor and
raise her own PKs. Her husband is the
Rev. Nile Stine, pastor of Bethel Bap-
tist Church in Hernando.
She said one of the best parts of
growing up as a PK was sitting at the
dinner table with visiting missionar-


ies, evangelists and other guest speak-
ers and listening to their stories - in-
cluding a Japanese man who had led
the attack on Pearl Harbor and who
had dedicated his life to following
Christ after World War II.
The most difficult thing was moving
to new locations when her father was
called to a new church.
"One thing we taught our boys,
which my parents also taught me, was
that it was a privilege, not a punish-
ment to be raised in a pastor's home,"
she said. "We also wanted them to be
able to meet and talk to missionaries,
evangelists and other guest speakers
so that these could impact the lives of
our sons."
Gloria Schultz, 71, from Lecanto, re-
called the prestige of being a PK, es-


pecially among other Lutherans who
knew her family name, Schedler.
The most difficult thing was being
different, she said.
"Kids told each other things they
wouldn't share with us. They also
treated us as though we thought we
were better than others - not true,"
she said. "My father forbade us to
dance, which left us out of the fun
times at school."
She said she followed in her father's
footsteps as best she could by becom-
ing a parochial school teacher.
"I did decide that I wouldn't marry
a pastor, because I didn't want my chil-
dren to be raised in a parsonage," she
said. "My observation is that things are
different now and there is more nor-
malcy to the lives of PKs."

be everyday language," she wrote.
She said the words make her feel
cool, "on board with the latest foul,
edgy lingo."
She said she didn't use the
George Carlin seven words you can
never say on television, but their
cute substitutes.
Then she wrote, "But just be-
cause I can, doesn't mean I
should."
Mark Driscoll, infamously known
as the "cussing pastor" from Mars
Hill Church in Seattle, admitted in
2007 that although he believes
"strong language and a prophetic
edge is appropriate, shock-jock
language isn't," and that he


laments being known by his blue
foul mouth.
He's just part of a trend of Chris-
tians pushing the language enve-
lope, trying to be relevant to the
culture. Sadly, I've bought into it,
too.
Thirty years ago, within the first
few days of becoming a Christian, I
was talking to another Christian
and said something about "finally
getting my stuff together," only I
didn't say "stuff."
Barely audible, this other person
gasped and said, "That'll come in
time."
I know absolutely that she said it
to herself, but I heard it and
thought, "Hmmm, Christians don't
cuss."
After that, profanity just disap-
peared from my vocabulary with-


out any real effort on my part. One
day I talked dirty and the next day
I didn't.
My words stayed clean for
decades. When I turned 50 I no-
ticed that my mouth wasn't so clean
anymore.
I haven't crossed over into hard-
core profanity, but words that
would make my Aunt Gladys
cringe, blush or reach for a bar of
soap to stick in my mouth have
managed to exit my lips. If I'm con-
cerned with what my elderly aunt
thinks, you'd think I'd be more con-
cerned with what God thinks.
Clearly, he thinks (because he
says so in his Word) not to let any
unwholesome or worthless talk,
corrupt communication, foul or
polluting language come out of my
mouth, but only what is helpful


(Ephesians 4:29).
Using profanity, even the most
current faux-profane substitutions
in place of the really bad words,
isn't helpful. At 54, I should know
better.
Recently, I read an account of
John Piper, a well-respected Chris-
tian author and theologian, being
confronted for his use of inappro-
priate language. He had been
speaking at a conference and in-
stead of saying that God disciplines
his children he said God "kicks our
a**."
Piper said he was trying to make
a point to his cool, hip audience.
However, "it backfires if one be-
comes unholy to make people
holy," he wrote.
Piper's words, added to
Robaina's words, added to God's


Word brings me back 30 years to
that first revelation about what
should and shouldn't come out of a
Christian's mouth.
I'm not responsible ,for anyone
else's words, like the young woman
at the restaurant, but I am respon-
sible for mine. With God's help, I
renew my choice of using helpful
words over unwholesome. Anybody
have a bar of soap?

Inverness joins 200 communities nationwide in attempting to reduce cigarette litter


Special to the Chronicle

Members of Keep Citrus County
Beautiful (KCCB) presented the
first of a number of cigarette re-
ceptacles to the Inverness City
Council for use in the picturesque
central area of downtown Inver-
ness.
Established in 1953, Keep Amer-
ica Beautiful Inc. (KAB) is the na-
tion's largest volunteer-based
community action and education


organization with a network of
about 1,000 affiliate and participat-
ing organizations. They seek to form
public-private partnerships and
programs that engage individuals to
take greater responsibility for im-
proving their community environ-
ments, and Keep Citrus County
Beautiful is a certified affiliate.
The county seat of Citrus County,
Inverness, joins about 200 commu-
nities nationwide in kicking off the
annual KAB effort to reduce the


number of cigarette butts, the most
widely littered item in America. In
their first year with the program,
Inverness plans to significantly re-
duce this debris throughout the
downtown sector, a popular and
busy area that includes many "tran-
sition points" - places where peo-
ple must stop smoking before
entering public, places such as
restaurants, retail, government and
office buildings.

CCVC changes meeting this month


Special to the Chronicle.

The Citrus County Veter-
ans Coalition moved the busi-
ness meeting up to the third
Thursday. All honorably dis-
charged veterans and Vet-
eran's organizations are
invited to attend and join the
organization. Meetings are at
6 p.m. at the Citrus County
Resource Center in Lecanto
next to the VA. Clinic in the
County Veterans Officer's
classroom.
We are looking for veterans
who are dedicated to helping
with veterans affairs,
fundraising events, assisting
in picking up food for the Vet-
erans Food Bank and deliv-
ering food to needy veterans
and their families and work-


ing toward our re-education
activities. We have life mem-
bers and organizations from
most of the veterans' organi-
zations in Citrus County and
we are not attempting to take
you away from your parent
organization.
The final meeting for 2008
will be open to nomination of
officers for 2009. The monthly
veterans benefit yard sale
has been a great success and
the business meeting will be
dealing with the Coalition's
financial status, and we need
your input on how to distrib-
ute the funds to meet our ob-
ligations to needy veterans
and their families.
The Citrus County Veter-
ans Coalition Food Bank has
been of service to more than


185 veterans and their fami-
lies. Our hats are off to Bill
and Nancy Geden for their
creation and maintaining the
food bank, providing storage
and refrigeration for the non-
perishable food and qualify-
ing and delivering to those
families in need. The last
purchase was for more than
1,000 pounds. There-are non-
perishable food receptacles
at the two Superior Bank
buildings in Citrus County
and any help in providing
canned goods and non-per-
ishable foods would be most
appreciated, particularly
during the holidays.
Please accept our invita-
tion to get involved with the
Citrus County Veterans Coali-
tion.


arette Litter Prevention Program,
with support from Philip Morris
USA for the past six years, ad-
dresses the issue by integrating
four proven approaches: encourag-

ash receptacles at transition points
such as entrances to public build-
ings; and distributing pocket ash-
trays to adult smokers.

PHILLIP ADLER
Newspaper Enterprise Assn.
In yesterday's deal, I men-
tioned that inexperienced de-
fenders cost themselves
numerous tricks throughout the
year by winning tricks that they
ought to have ducked. Obviously,
though, sometimes the opposite
will be true, a defender not taking
a trick that he.should have won.
Examples are few and far be-
tween - but here- is one. After
West has led the heart king
against four spades, who should
win what and when to defeat the
contract?
Against many pairs, four spades
would make. At trick one, East
would signal enthusiastically
with his heart seven, and West
would play another heart. The
spade ace would be the third de-
fensive trick, but that would be
all.
At the end of the deal, East and
West would probably agree that
there was nothing they could
have done. Ha! Or East might say
that he should have played his
heart two at trick one, and then
West would have shifted to a dia-
mond, setting up the ruff. Semi-
ha!
West's heart-king lead promises
the queen. East has a singleton di-
amond and the trump ace as a

fast entry. East should overtake
his partner's heart king and shift
to his diamond. Then he should
grab the first trump, put his part-
ner on lead with a heart, and
await the diamond ruff to defeat
the contract And if West does not
give East his ruff, it would surely
be justifiable homicide!
When the dummy appears at
trick one, both defenders should
try to decide from where the nec-
essary number of tricks will
come. Here, East can immedi-
ately see three: one spade and
two hearts. Then, when he won-
ders about the fourth, a diamond
ruff should occur to him.

How to handle drama queen


D ear Annie: I'm having prob-
lems with my mother. For
her, the worst is always to
come: financial crises, prowlers in
the neighborhood, war, death,
famine. Yet if she calls and you
aren't all sunshiny, she berates you.
Mom has little contact with family
and runs hot and cold
with her friends. She
would probably benefit
from therapy if she were
open to it, but she's not .
The last time we talked
she insisted we were
going to lose our house
(not so), and when I tried
to steer the subject else-
where, she became agi-
tated. I tried to calm
things down and she hung
up on me. We haven't spo-
ken since. ANN
The strange thing is, I MAIL
don't miss her I don't want
to feud with my mother
and it's peaceful not hearing about
the end of the world or how stupid I
am. I've thought of calling to mend
things, but I have no idea what to say
and I'm not sure I want to reconcile.
If I contact her, Mom will expect
me to grovel and she'll list all my
"sins" against her I used to beat my-
self up over it, but after therapy I re-
alize I'm not so bad. I've taken care
of her when she was sick, given her
money, helped her with paperwork
and other matters, and listened to
her problems. But it's never enough.
How do I handle this? - Tired of
Groveling
Dear Tired: Your mother is a


drama queen who thrives on creat-
ing turmoil. You can maintain con-
tact without getting sucked into her
guilt vortex by setting boundaries
and disengaging when she becomes
difficult
Call her up and say hello as if no
time has passed. Don't grovel. If she
berates you in any way,
respond sweetly that
you're glad she's feeling
OK, say goodbye and hang
r f up. Do it again in a week
When she sees that she
can't ruffle your feathers,
she will adjust
Dear Annie: I am 60
years old and have been
dating "George" for more
than a year The problem
is, he lives like a cave-
man. His home is filthy
IE'S and piled with junk so he
.BOX spends most of his time at
my home, where he
leaves coffee spills every-
where, greasy fingerprints on cabi-
nets and so on. It's like I have to clean
up after a 2-year-old. He also has a
terrible habit of constantly picking
his nose and adjusting his male
parts. I think those may be nervous
habits.
I love George. We hold similar
views, like the same activities and
can talk easily But it would be too
embarrassing to introduce him to my
friends. Should I move on or work on
these problems so that we might be
happy together? - Perplexed
Dear Perplexed: You have nothing
to lose by being frank and telling
George that he needs to control his


nervous habits and learn about
cleanliness. Teach him what you can.
Remind him when he forgets. If he
won't work on this or doesn't im-
prove, decide what you are willing to
tolerate.
Dear Annie: I read the letter from
"Have Medicare but no Doctor,"
whose physician told her she was no
longer taking Medicare patients.
Your readers may be interested to
know that the Web site
www.medicare.gov offers a search
for physicians and other health care
professionals, including those who
participate in Medicare. Those who
don't have Internet access can call
(800) Medicare (1-800-633-4227). I
hope this helps her to find a doctor.

Jackman to host new-
look Oscars
LOS ANGELES - Hugh
Jackman will host the 81st
annual Oscars, the Acad-
emy of Motion Picture
Arts and Sciences con-
firmed Friday.
Telecast producers Lau-
rence
Mark and
Bill Con-
don called
the Aus-
tralian
actor "a
consum-
mate en-
Hqgh tertainer
Jackman and an in-
ternation-
ally renowned movie
star"
"He alsq has style, ele-
gance and a sense of occa-
sion," Mark and Condon
said in a joint statement.
"Hugh is the ideal choice
to host a celebration of
the year's movies - and
to have fun doing it"
Jackman, recently
named People magazine's
"Sexiest Man Alive," won
an Emmy in 2005 for host-
ing the 59th annual Tony
Awards in 2004. He also
took home a best-actor
Tony that year for his per-
formance in the musical
"The Boy From Oz."
Perhaps best known as
Wolverine.in the "X-Men"
movie franchise, Jackman
recently starred in Baz
Luhrmann's romantic ad-
venture film 'Australia"
with Nicole Kidman. He
was out of the country Fri-
day for a promotional tour
for the film and wasn't im-
mediately available for
comment, his representa-
tive, Alan Nierob, said.
Jackman has never
been an Oscar nominee,
but was nominated for a
Golden Globe for his role
in 2001's romantic film
"Kate & Leopold." His
other movie credits in-
clude 2006's "The Pres-
tige" and 2004's "Van
Helsing." Jackman also
served as a past presenter
on the Oscar show. :
The 40-year-old actor
and his wife, Deborra-Lee
Furness, have their own
Oscar - their 8-year-old
son Oscar Maximillian.
The couple also have a 3-
year-old daughter Ava.
Jackman's selection is a
departure from the Acad-
emy's standard of big-
name comedians. Jon
Stewart hosted the cere-
mony in 2008 and 2006;
Ellen DeGeneres was the
2007 host. Chris Rock,
Steve Martin, Billy Crystal
and Whoopi Goldberg
have also hosted the show
in recent years.

Man who offered
singer drugs jailed
LONDON -A judge on
Friday jailed a man who
sold a newspaper footage
that appeared to show
Amy Winehouse taking
drugs.

Blagrove
and his
girlfriend
Cara Btr-
ton admit-
ted
offering to
Amy supply
Winehouse drugs, in-
cluding co-
caine and ecstasy, to the
singer anrd other celebri-
ties.
Judge Tudor Owen or-
dered Blagrove, 34, jailed
for two years. Burton, 22,
received two years' com-
munity service.
Prosecutors say the pair
covertly filmed Wine-
house at a party and sold
the footage to The Sun
newspaper for 50,000
pounds ($75,000). In Janu-
ary the paper published
the images, which ap-
peared to show the singer
smoking crack cocaine


and snorting a substance
from a card.
Detectives decided
there was not enough evi-
dence to charge Wine-
house because it could
not be proved what the
substances were. But they
charged the couple with
offering to supply drugs.

1950s pinup model Bettie Page dies in L.A. at 85


Associated Press

LOS ANGELES -
, ettie Page, the 1950s secre-
tary-turned-model whose
controversial photographs in
skimpy attire or none at all helped
set the stage for the 1960s sexual
revolution, died Thursday. She was
85.
Page was placed on life support
last week after suffering a heart at-
tack in Los Angeles and never re-
gained consciousness, said her
agent, Mark Roesler He said he and
Page's family agreed to remove life
support Before the heart attack,
Page had been hospitalized for
three weeks with pneumonia.
"She captured the imagination of
a generation of men and women
with her free spirit and unabashed
sensuality," Roesler said.
"She is the embodiment of
beauty."
Page, who was also known as
Betty, attracted national attention
with magazine photographs of her
sensuous figure in biki-
nis and see-through
lingerie that were
quickly tacked
up on walls in
military bar-
racks, .


garages and elsewhere, where they
remained for years.
Her photos included a centerfold
in the January 1955 issue of then-
fledgling Playboy magazine, as well
as controversial sadomasochistic
poses.
"I think that she was a remark-
able lady, an iconic figure in pop
culture who influenced sexuality,
taste in fashion, someone who had a
tremendous impact on our society,"
Playboy founder Hugh Hefner told
The Associated Press on Thursday.
"She was a very dear person."
Page mysteriously disappeared
from the public eye for decades,
during which time she battled men-
tal illness and became a born-again
Christian.
After resurfacing in the 1990s, she
occasionally granted interviews but
refused to allow her picture to be
taken.
"I don't want to be photographed
in my old age," she told an inter-
viewer in 1998. "I feel the same way
with old movie stars.... It makes me
sad. We want to remember them
when they were young."
The 21st century indeed
had people remembering
her just as she was. She
became the subject of
songs, biographies, Web
sites, corn ic books.
en mo\ ies and documeln-
taries A new genera-
Lion of fans bought
thousands of copies of
her photos, and some
feminists hailed her as
a pioneer orf omen's
liberation.
Gretchen Mol por-
trayed her in 2005's "The
Notorious Bettie Page"
and Paige Richards had
_.- . the role in 2004's "Bettie
.'. Page. Dark Angel." Page
lierself'took pait in the
S1998 docu-

tary
"Betty Page: Pinup Queen."
Hefner said he last saw Page
when he held a screening of "The
Notorious Bettie Page" at the Play-
boy Mansion. He said she objected
to the fact that the film referred to
her as "notorious," but "we ex-
plained to her that it referred to the
troubled times she had and was a
good way to sell a movie."
Page's career began one day in Oc-
tober 1950 when she took a respite
from her job as a secretary in a New
York office for a walk along the
beach at Coney Island. An amateur
photographer named Jerry Tibbs ad-
mired the 27-year-old's firm, curvy
body and asked her to pose.
Looking back on the career that
followed, she told Playboy in 1998: "I
never thought it was shameful. I felt
normal. It's just that it was much bet-
ter than pounding a typewriter eight
hours a day, which gets monoto-
nous."
Nudity didn't bother her, she said,
explaining: "God approves of nudity.
Adam and Eve in the Garden of
Eden, they were naked as jaybirds."
In 1951, Page fell under the influ-
ence of a photographer and his sis-
ter who specialized in S&M. They
cut her hair into the dark bangs that
became her signature and posed her
in spiked heels and little else. Sh&
was photographed with a w hip in
her hand, and in one session she was
spread-eagled between two trees,
her feet dangling.
"I thought my arms and legs would
come out of their sockets." she said
later:
Moralists denounced the photos as
perversion, and Sen. Estes Kefauver
of Tennessee, Page's home state,
launched a congressional investiga-
tion.
Page quickly retreated from pub-
lic % iew, later saying she was
hounded by federal agents wlho
wa% ed her lnude photos in her face.
She also said she beiie ed that, at
age 34, her days as "the girl with the
perfect figure" were nearly over
She moved to Florida in 1957 and
, married a much .%0unger mant, as
an early marriage to her high
. school sweetheart had
ended in divorce.


Bettie Page, the 1950s secretary-turned-
model whose controverisal photographs
in skimpy attire or none at all helped set
the stage for the 1960s sexual revolu-
tion, died Thursday. She was 85.

Marvin Sapp (not Warren) leads top singles list


Associated Press

If you want to create a mix-
tape of the year's best songs,
here are the must-haves for
2008.
1. "Never Would Have
Made It," Marvin Sapp: Of
course, a gospel tome is in-
spirational - that's the
whole point, hello! - but
Sapp's stirring song was
more than that It moved the
listener to the core, which
few songs, even gospel tunes,
have the power to do.
3. "A Milli," Lil Wayne:
Sapp's song wasn't so power-
ful that it made us stop lis-
tening to '"A Milli," the No. 2
song on this list "A Milli" is
filled with a-bleep-a-second
verses and vulgar putdowns
- but oh-so-artfully done.
3. "Lollipop," Lil Wayne:
While Wayne may be rap's


top lyricist, this X-rated slow
jam highlighted his singing-
off-key but grimy and grip-
ping. His raspy voice draws
you in, but it's what he's say-
ing - and we can't repeat it
here - that keeps your ears
burning.
4. "Sensual Seduction,"
Snoop Dogg: We give this
song high marks for the mes-
sage alone (guys, take note).
But the '70s inspired-synths
plus Snoop's freaky crooning
made this an irresistible jam.
5. "Yes We Can," will.i.am:
While the lyrics were Barack
Obama's words, will.i.am's in-
genious composition gave the
inspirational speech even
more power by adding ap an-
themic musical background
and using celebrities like
John Legend, Scarlett Jo-
hansson and Ryan Phillippe
to recite Obama's message.


Even a Republican couldn't
deny the power of this gem.
6. "Love Song," Sara
Bareilles: This bouncy piano-
driven song was made popu-
lar because of its use in a
commercial, but it would
have stuck in people's minds
in any case: It's delightful
and catchy, and the kind of
song that wins fans across
genres.
7. "Love Lockdown," Kanye
West: The first salvo from
West's singing manifesto
"808s & Heartbreak" was
somber and almost mono-
tone, but the coolness of his
Auto-tune enhanced voice al-
most added more emotion to
this bitter breakup song. The
feverish drumming at the end
is the killer capper.
8. "The Way That I Love
You," Ashanti: No, that isn't a
misprint - Ashanti did actu-


ally make this list While her
vocal performance on this
woman-scorned ballad is
good, it's the dramatic music
accompanying her that is the
song's true star - it grabs you
from the opening, haunting
piano notes.
9. "Paper Planes," M.I.A.:
Admit it, most of you proba-
bly never understood what in
the world M.I.A. was singing
about and just grooved to the
breezy beat - which is
enough to get you hooked.
But it's when you realize that
she's expressing the frustra-
tion and anger of the illegal
immigrant that the song's
true power is revealed.
10. "Need You Bad,"
Jazmine Sullivan: This blend
of reggae and R&B, along
with Sullivan's pleading
voice, made this song an R&B
treasure.
