El President: Bleakely wins emotional tourney


Multi-time champion rallies rom four strokes
down with seven holes to win 15th title


JOHN COSCIA
jcoscia@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
In the 42-year history of the Presiden-
tial Invitational the Seven Rivers Golf &
Country Club has been the stage for every
imaginable finish.


Or so it thought
On Sunday afternoon the tournament
wrote its most emotional conclusion to
date.
Trailing by four strokes with seven
holes to play, Bob Bleakley rallied to win
the tournament over Rick Powers. It was
the 15th time that Bleakley has hoisted


the trophy for the annual event But none
of his 14 previous victories could hold a
match to the heart-wrenching sentiments
that were bred on the golf course on this
day.
Bleakley was playing on his home
course in front of family and friends in
his first competitive rounds of golf since
the tragic events of last month when
Bleakley's son, Will, was tragically lost at
sea. No one knew how the multi-time
champion's nerves would hold up al-
though most were secretly, if not openly


cheering, for a Hollywood finish.
And Bleakley delivered.
Afterward it was Powers' words that
carried the greatest weight, capturing the
true essence of the moment
"I certainly wanted to win. But if I had
to lose a tournament I'm glad it was this
tournament, this weekend ...to Bob. Es-
pecially now," said Powers about his dear
friend. 'This was an emotional weekend.
And I'm glad Betty was riding along with
him. I know that meant a lot to him."

Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Airlines car-
ried fewer people last year, but
did a better job for those who did
fly
The rates of lost bags, late ar-
rivals, passengers bumped from
overbooked flights and consumer
complaints all declined, private
researchers say in their annual
study of airline quality, based on
government statistics.

Nevertheless, consumer com-

2007 to 1,15 in 2008. Southwest
Airlines had the best rate, only
0,25 complaints per 100,000 pas-
sengers; US Airways had the
worst rate, 2,25,
Half of all complaints involved
baggage or flight problems such
as cancellations, delays or other
schedule deviations,
The average on-time perform-
ance last year was 3 percent bet-

nearly one-quarter of all flights
were late. The study being re-

Scouts stage Spring Camporee


DAVE SIGLER/Chronicle
Joe Wilder from Boy Scout Troop 302 in Inverness carries Luke Rabon from Troop 442 in Spring Hill while learning to perform the fireman's carry from
William Adams from Citrus County Fire Rescue during the Spring Camporee at McGregor Scout Camp. The Boy Scouts must be able to perform the fire-
man's carry for one of the merit badges requirements.


Special escorts on duty


PAT FAHERTY/For the Chronicle
Roger Tyson stops traffic Wednesday on Marion County Road 484 In Dunnellon to make
sure this pair of sandhill cranes and their two chicks get safely across the highway.

Volunteers help sandhill cranes travel safely


Special to the Chronicle
Every evening sometime between 5 and
6 p.m., local volunteers stop traffic on
busy Marion County Road 484 (Pennsyl-
vania Avenue), Dunnellon's main street,
so a pair of sandhill cranes and their two
chicks can safely cross the highway.
The birds spend their day feeding on
the north side north of town, but have
their nests on the south side of the high-
way, and return home every evening
about the same time during rush hour
traffic.
Volunteers are in the process of making


signs to make sure motorists are aware of
the birds. Donna Hancock said they are
willing to serve as crossing guards as long
as necessary.
On Wednesday evening, Soren and
Merete Kragh and Roger Tyson stopped
traffic to make sure the cranes got safely
across. Evelyn Tyson, who keeps an eye
out every evening for the birds, said the
cranes have been coming through her
yard on Pennsylvania Avenue for years.
Helping the birds is not an exact sci-
ence, and sometimes the volunteers can-
not tell until the last possible minute just
where the cranes will cross the road.

Chronicle
Increasing fees to privately
rent some facilities at Whis-
pering Pines Park will be
considered Tuesday at the
Inverness City Council meet-
ing.
The increases are pro-
posed "to capture costs asso-
ciated with private rentals of
the junior Olympic swim-
ming pool, picnic pavilion,
the new water playground
and shade shelter, as well as
electric for non-city spon-
sored special event," Pati
Smith, parks director, stated
in a memo.
A full-day reservation for
the picnic pavilion would rise
to $75 from $60, according to
the proposal, and a two-hour
rental of the pool would rise
to $100 from $75.
The audit for the year end-
ing Sept 30,2008, will be pre-
sented.
"This is a critical review of
the inner workings of city
government that we take se-
riously," said City Manager
Frank DiGiovanni in a memo.
"In part, public entities are
measured by .how they col-
lect, appropriate, invest, ex-
pense and account for
resources."

BLEAKLEY
Continued from Page Al

Indeed it did. And not just
for all of the obvious reasons.
"He asked me (Saturday
riight) if I would come," Betty
Bleakley said. "And so I
came."
It was as simple as that
Ironically enough, however,
Betty's presence would prove
to provide more than moral
support
'"After I hit three bad drives
on the eighth, ninth and 10th
holes and a bad second shot
on 10 that went toward the
woods, I returned to the cart
and told Betty, 'That's it I've
lost my swing."'
What his wife said next,
Bleakley credits with his win-
ning the golf tournament
"She just turned to me and
said, 'you're slouching,"'
Bleakley explained. "That's
all she had to say."
Only a week earlier Bleak-
ley had given his wife the
same advice while the two
were playing together with
friends at Black Diamond.
"It was the first time we've
played any golf since every-
thing happened," Betty ex-
plained. '"And Bob told me
that I was slouching and that
when I addressed the ball I
should stand up straight (On
Sunday) I noticed he was
doing the same thing."
The simple adjustment
made all the difference in the
world and over the course of
the next six holes Bleakley de-
scribed his ball-striking as


"some of the best he's ever
had."
While Bleakley's game was
starting to get back on track,
Powers was about to com-
pletely unravel.
The first-day leader who
shot an even par 72 on the first
day was just as clean on the
front nine of Sunday's round.
And when he took the turn
with an even par 36 and a four
shot lead, it looked as if the
tournament was all but locked
up. But Powers, who has been
suffering from a severe cold
over the past few days admit-
ted that after his tee shot on
the 11th hole, "my body ran
out of gas."
Powers opened with back-
to-back bogeys on the back
nine. But when Bleakley did
the same, Powers lead re-
mained four with seven holes
to play
And then came the turning
point of the match... hole No.
12.
Powers tee shot went right
forcing him to lay up short of
the green. Meanwhile, listen-
ing to the advice of his caddie
and riding partner, Bleakley
laced a drive down the middle
of the fairway He then hit his
approach shot on the par 4,
388-yard hole, to within four
feet of the pin. His birdie cou-
pled with Powers bogey cut
the lead in half
Powers would go on to
bogey the next two holes and
Bleakley managed par. With
four holes left to play the
match was all tied.
On the par 315th hole, how-
ever, Powers would hit it in the
water and take h double bogey.


And when Bleakley saved par
to take a two-shot lead it
looked as if he had the tour-
nament won.
But in a round that had
seen it all by both golfers there
was still plenty of drama left to
unfold. Both players made par
on the 16th hole.. On the long
556-yard par 5 Bleakley hit an-
other picture-perfect drive.
Powers, on the other hand, hit
his drive right Blocked by the
woods he hit his next shot thru
the fairway to the left side
where it came to rest under a
tree.
Understanding his oppo-
nent's predicament, Bleakley
opted for a 3-iron shot that he
hoped "to just move safely up
the fairway."
Instead he shanked the shot
and it went left into the woods
forcing him to punch back out
for his third shot Meanwhile,
Powers, who had appeared
dead under the tree, took a 3-
iron and hit a beautiful shot
that landed just in front of the
green.
When Bleakley hit his
fourth shot short and it landed
in the bunker the door was of-
ficially back open for Powers.
Bleakley would go on to dou-
ble-bogey the hole but when
Powers missed his six-foot par
putt, his bogey -only allowed
him to gain one stroke.
"On my second shot,'I was
trying to guard against the
wind. Looking back I should
have used driver and just
topped it 90 to 100 yards down
the fairway," Bleakley ex-
plained. "My fourth shot was
just nerves. I should never
have left that shot short and


put it in the bunker"
On the 18th hole Bleakley
closed the tournament out
with a par to clinch his 15th
Presidential Invitational.
"I never expected to win,"
Bleakley admitted. '"Actually,
truth be told, I survived and
everybody else lost On the
front nine I worked hard to
stay around. I felt pretty good
about the way I closed it out"
Bleakley admitted that on
the 16th hole he was thinking
about his son. "I tried not to
let my emotions get the best
of me but that's when I prob-
ably welled up the most,"
Bleakley said. "(Saturday
night) Betty cried all night
and (Sunday) I cried all
morning. It's been tough. I
still keep just waiting for Will
to walk through the door. You
know it's not going to happen.
But you just keep hoping."
It's no wonder why that
when Bob Bleakley's score
was posted and his name an-
nounced as the 2009 Presi-
dential Invitational
champion all of the golfers
and gallery that had gathered
around erupted in applause.
Emotions flowed and Bleak-
ley received congratulatory
hugs from friends and fellow
golfers alike. And with that
the tournament that for years
he has done so much to pro-
mote and support was now
giving back to their 15-time
champion.
One golfer, after glancing
at the final scoreboard,
summed it up best. "If that
guy's not amazing, I don't
know who is."
Indeed he is.

Lunsford describes
need for funding
ORLANDO - The father of
slain 9-year-old Jessica
Lunsford reminisced about his
daughter's life and the need for
more funding for child protec-
tion organizations Saturday at
the Florida Associated Press
Broadcasters Awards.
Lunsford recalled when his
daughter would playfully pluck
raisins from his cereal bowl. But
a tearful Lunsford also de-
scribed the need for more fund-
ing for agencies like the U.S.
Marshals, the Florida Depart-
ment of Children and Families
and groups that target Internet
crimes against children.
He spoke two weeks ago in


Congress to plead for funding
for such programs.
Jessica Lunsford was kid-
napped, raped and buried alive
in 2005 by a convicted sex of-
fender in Homosassa.
8-year-old girl
shot, killed
ST. PETERSBURG -An 8-
year-old girl has died after police
say she was caught in a spray
of bullets while sleeping inside
her home.
St. Petersburg Police say the
death of Paris Hamilton appears
to be an act of retaliation and
not a random act of violence.
Hamilton was sleeping in the
front of the house Sunday mom-
ing at 2:24 a.m. when someone
outside fired multiple shots from

one of the bullets entered the
house and struck the girl.
She was taken to a hospital
and pronounced dead a short
time later. Several adults and
one other child were also home
at the time of the shooting. They
were not injured.
Kottkamp's plane
usage questioned
TALLAHASSEE - Lt. Gov.
Jeff Kottkamp's says he used a
state plane to travel for official
business, but records on some
occasions show he may have
used the plane for personal trips.
Kottkamp reimbursed the


state more than $10,000 for
flights his wife and son took
aboard state planes.
But records show he used the
plane to fly to St. Augustine in
2007 for a federal Small Busi-
ness Administration event. SBA
officials said they had no events
during Kottkamp's visit.
On Thanksgiving weekend
2008, Kottkamp and his wife
flew to Tallahassee for a football
game. Records show he at-
tended a jazz brunch at a lobby-
ist's home before flying home to
Fort Myers.
Kottkamp says "not everything
I do is on the calendar."

died. He was 92.
Braden died Friday of

Detroit police
halt pillow fight
DETROIT - Police in Detroit
have ruffled some feathers after
they cracked down on an or-
ganized pillow fight at a down-
town park.
The Detroit News reports
that police at Campus Martius
Park prevented the feathery
fight Saturday by disarming pil-
low-toting participants. The bout
was part of a worldwide event
organized on social networking
Web sites.
Michael Davis of Hamtramck
says police confiscated the 32-
year-old man's pillows but re-
turned their cases. He says he
was told that he needed a per-
mit.
Scott Harris of Ferndale told
the News that it's "not illegal to
own a pillow."
Detroit police spokesman
James Tate says cleanup was
the issue.
NYU accepts grad
students by mistake
NEW YORK - New York
University officials weren't
laughing when hundreds of
people mistakenly received
word that they'd been accepted
to grad school on April Fools'
Day.
NYU says it sent out accept-
ance e-mails April 1 to 489 ap-
plicants to the Robert F.
Wagner Graduate School of
Public Service. Those appli-
cants should have received re-
jection letters instead.
The school sent out a sec-
ond e-mail about an hour later
to the applicants, saying they


hadn't been accepted after all.
NYU spokesman Robert Pol-
ner blamed the mixup on a cler-
ical error. He says the school
apologizes for the mistaken e-
mails and is looking into it to
prevent it from happening
again.
Colorado man
coughs up nail
COLORADO SPRINGS,
Colo. - Prax Sanchez says he
doesn't recall any serious ham-
mer-and-nail mishaps in his
past.
Yet doctors administering an
MRI on the 72-year-old Col-
orado man last month abruptly
stopped the exam to tell him
there seemed to be something
metallic in his face.
Right after the MRI, Sanchez
coughed up an inch-long nail.
His doctor, Jamieson
Kennedy, told television station
KKTV in Colorado Springs that
the nail might have been em-
bedded there as long as 30
years. The MRI's magnetic
force apparently dislodged the
nail, causing Sanchez to cough
it up.
Sanchez says he can't re-
member ever using a nail like it.
"I'll probably frame it," he said
Friday.

Police say an FBI bomb

Boy runs away
to rodeo grounds
JETERSVILLE, Va. -A 13-
year-old Virginia boy apparently
loaded his family's pickup truck
with food, clothes and his dog,
hitched up a trailer with two
horses in tow and drove nearly
1,300 miles to Texas, police
said. The teen's parents found
him safe Friday.
Police are unsure why the
boy ran away Wednesday
morning from his Jetersville-
area home. He apparently was
well-prepared, even bringing
extra propane tanks along.
Wyatt E. McLaughlin was
found about 2 p.m. Friday on a
rodeo grounds near Weather-
ford, Texas, where he had per-
formed several times before.
His parents looked for him
there on a hunch, said Sgt. Tom
Cunningham, a Virginia State
Police spokesman.
"These all don't turn out
well," Cunningham said Friday
night. "We're pleased to report
the outcome was positive."
Surveillance video from a
gas station in Mount Pleasant,
Texas, appeared to show the
boy pumping gas Thursday into
his family's pickup truck. The

parents flew to Texas to view
the video and believed the boy
on the tape was their son, Cun-
ningham said.
"Then (they) took the initia-
tive and went to places they
thought the boy might be," Cun-
ningham said.
The rodeo grounds are at
least two hours away from the
gas station, but "is a place the
family had been to on several
occasions and Wyatt had par-
ticipated in rodeos."
Cunningham said he wasn't
sure how the family found out
about the video but said they
made several phone calls to
Texas rodeo connections.

Ginsu Way helps cut
drivers' commute
WARWICK, R.I. - For more
than 30 years Ginsu knives
have been cutting through
plump tomatoes, radiator hoses
- even nails.
Now Rhode Island drivers
can use the Ginsu to cut their
commute times.
A stretch of road in Warwick
is now called Ginsu Way, in
honor of the men whose televi-
sion commercials turned a
cheap, serrated knife into a pop
icon so famous it was parodied
on "Saturday Night Live."
Ginsu Way connects two
major roadways and passes
the office of Ed Valenti, who
began marketing the knives in
1978 with then-partner Barry
Becher.
Valenti and Becher slapped a
Japanese-sounding name on
their knives and marketed them
in now-famous TV spots. The

jobs as waiters and bank

In the past, controllers

AirTran Airways did the
best job, with 2.87 mishan-
dled bags per 1,000 passen-
gers; American Eagle
Airlines did the worst, at
9.89.
The study, compiled an-
nually since 1991, is based
on Transportation Depart-
ment statistics for airlines
that carry at least 1 percent
of the passengers who flew
domestically last year. The
research is sponsored by
the Aviation Institute at the
University of Nebraska at
Omaha and by Wichita
State University in Kansas.
An overall ranking of the
17 airlines based on their


combined performance in
four categories was to be
released Monday.
The improved perform-
ance was not surprising be-
cause 2007 was the worst
year for airlines in the
study, said co-author Dean
Headley, an associate pro-
fessor of marketing at Wi-
chita State.
The aviation system suf-
fered close to a meltdown
in 2007 as domestic carriers
reported 770 million pas-
sengers in the busiest year
for air travel since before
the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Aviation experts said the
air transport system had
reached capacity.

airport have five years or
less experience.
"Safety is our primary
concern," said Craig Chan-
dler, North Florida man-
ager for the FAA, which
operates the towers and em-
ploys controllers. "We
would not do anything to
jeopardize the safety of the
flying public."
U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and
13 members of Congress
signed a letter in December
asking the FAA to further
study Orlando's training
split instead of implement-
ing it in the final weeks of
the Bush administration.


There were 741 million
passengers in 2008, and air-
lines are reporting weak
travel demand through the
first quarter of this year,
"We're now in a time
when the system is con-
stricting and performing
reasonably well," Headley
said. He urged Congress to
take advantage of this
"breathing room" to move
forward on a system that
would replace decades-old
radar technology with
satellite-based technology.
That new system is fore-
cast to increase air trans-
portation system capacity
by enabling planes to fly
closer together and more
directly to their destina-
tions, saving time and fuel.
"It's crazy to think we can
keep going the way we were
going with the volume of
planes we have in the air,"
Headley said.

Letters to THE EDITOR


Fine organizations
In recent weeks, my hus-
band and I found our-
selves needing help with
transportation.
Two organizations and
their volunteers reached
out and helped: The Skill
Bank in Beverly Hills and
Doctor Ride. My husband
had just started dialysis
three times per week when
I unexpectedly found my-
self in the hospital. One
daughter was here at the
time with another arriving
to help.
They were so concerned
with how we would get
along being on our own.
They began calling organi-
zations to see what kind of
services we had in Citrus
County. They were re-
ferred to these fine organi-
zations for help in
transportation, which was
going to be the main factor.
I called Doctor Ride and
The Skill Bank and found
that dreading to ask for
help wasn't necessary
Both put me at ease imme-
diately and took the infor-
mation for when drivers
were needed, and very
soon afterward, I started
receiving calls that the
rides would be here for us.
Thank you from the bot-
tom of our hearts to both
organizations and to their
wonderful volunteers for
the help we received.
Never one time were we
let down and the friendly
smile when they arrived
was an added gift.
The Skill Bank has an of-
fice that is operated by vol-
unteers Monday through
Friday from 9 a.m. until
noon. If you have need for
such things as doctor ap-
pointment rides, or to the


pharmacy or grocery store
in Beverly Hills, or many
other services that you
might need as a senior citi-
zen over the age of 60 liv-
ing in Beverly Hills, call
these nice people and see
if they can help you. The
number is 746-5001.
The Doctor Ride pro-
gram is run by a nice cou-
ple named Mary and John;
I do not know them per-
sonally, only through ask-
ing for their help, but I can
tell you that my admira-
tion for a couple who will
organize and run a needed
program such as this is
larger than I can say. The
Doctor Ride number is
746-3796. You need to give
them three days lead time
for requests.
I would like for any of
you reading this to con-
sider calling one of these
organizations to volunteer
in these needed programs.
There is always some
small task that you can
help with, I am sure.
Mary and Bob Cargell

Bad water bill
(This is a letter sent re-
cently to several state law-
makers, as well as the
Senate Policy and Steering
Committee on Energy, En-
vironment, and Land Use,
regarding 2009 S 2424/H
1111 Relating to Water
Supply:)
Most of our 1,000 mem-
bers could tell you about
TOO FAR (and others)
going to Tallahassee on
buses trailing our "big
pipe" to fight against
water transfers. Many
would show you their pho-
tos. We remain proud of


our part leading to "local
sources first." We continue
to honor Nancy Argen-
ziano's accomplishment.
Some of you certainly re-
member and were a big
help.
You may well under-
stand how we react when
we read in the referenced
105 page bill: "...the Legis-
lature realizes that, under
certain circumstances, the
need to transport water
from distant sources may
be necessary for environ-
mental, technical, or eco-
nomic reasons."
Numerous citations of the
nebulous hurdle "reason-
able-beneficial" to legit-
imize future water needs
and potentially turn on
"transport water from dis-
tant sources," extend our
discomfort.
We see the anxiety
caused by the current
drought. Temporary help
for those in need is part of
our heritage but is not an
appropriate reason or ex-
cuse for the state to usurp
local control of water re-
sources.
We will fight again if
necessary, but with your
help it should not be nec-
essary. Please reject this
bill - S. 2424/H 1111 Re-
lating to Water Supply
Al Grubman, president
TOO FAR Inc.

Damage control
Excerpts from a letter to
Gov. Charlie Crist: The
Chronicle (recently) ran a
story about the raids your
ABT pulled on our local
Moose, Eagles and Veter-
ans of Foreign Wars
(groups) because they
were enjoying 50/50 draw-


ings at their meetings. Ac-
cording to this article,
(they) seized thousands of
dollars and when the com-
mander of the VFW asked
what was going on, they
waved handcuffs at him
and threatened him with
"a ride."
These are American vet-
erans at the VFW! They
served in combat - put
their lives on the line for
this great nation. You need
to do some major damage
control. These are all de-
cent, charitable organiza-
tions that do good things
for our community and
who doesn't have 50/50 at
their monthly meetings? I
was with Rotary and we al-
ways had 50/50 at the meet-
ing. I was an officer with
the U.S. Coast Guard Aux-
iliary and we had 50/50 at
each meeting. I was
founder and president of
our local Corvette sports
car club and we did the
same - and we donated
$1,000 per year to CUB, the
local food bank. There is a
50/50 at the local stock car
track and, well, let's just
say that almost every or-
ganization has a 50/50 to
help their own organiza-
tion and to help the com-
munity.
To invade the VFW and
threaten American combat
veterans with handcuffs
and "a ride" goes way be-
yond shameful.
I met you many years
ago at our local Republi-
can dinner and I think you
are a good man and an in-
telligent man - and you
sure are smart enough to
know that you are going to
have a major debacle here
if you don't pull the fat out
the fire, and fast!


You have done a great
job so far and most Florid-
ians like the job you are
doing, but this will sour
thousands of Floridians
and you might as well start
packing up your office now
if you don't act properly
and fast. We can forgive a
lot of things, but this is so
far over the top that it
must be corrected quickly.

Hernando

Thanks, Chris
The St. Timothy's Boat-
ing and Fishing Club would
like to express its most sin-
cere thanks to the profes-
sional folks at Homosassa
Marine for the fine presen-
tation given by Chris
Flounders. Although the


program had very short no-
tice, we appreciated the
fine work he did on March
24. Chris stepped in after
the scheduled speaker can-
celed at the last minute.
I would also like to thank
Homosassa Marine for the
cooperation that that we
have received in the past.
Vito Palazzolo, their serv-
ice manager, gave a semi-
nar to our club on
"Outboard Motor Mainte-
nance." Homosassa Ma-
rine's continued support is
a shining example of peo-
ple and a local dealership
that really care enough to
take the time to work with
folks.

Big Three bailout
The United States
should not spend a dollar
more to shore up the auto
industry. The Big Three
have been "in bed" with
oil companies for
decades, insuring that the
American auto be depend-
ent on their product. All
you have to do is see the
rise and marketing of the
Hummer and other ineffi-
cient vehicles as petro-
leum discoveries decline.
Throughout the 1970s
and 1980s, there were fuel-
efficient vehicles on the
roads, but now even the
small cars don't get better
gas mileage than my hus-
band's 1985 Chevy Sprint
(55 mpg). My 1997 Saturn
gets 42 miles to a gallon on
the highway with a simple
gas combustion engine.
Since the international
oil companies pushed for
vehicles that used fuel in-
efficiently, let them pay for
the retooling of the facto-
ries to make vehicles that
will meet the needs of a
world demanding alterna-
tive energy use.
This would benefit the
oil companies also be-
cause the petroleum reser-
voirs created in the time of
the dinosaurs are quickly
being depleted, sucked dry
by decades of misuse.
There must be alternative
fuels in place and in use
before the wells run dry,
and that time is quickly
coming.
Petroleum is a finite
product. One day all the
petroleum reserves will be
gone. There are no more
dinosaurs roaming the
earth to create more petro-
leum.
Let Mobile-Exxon,
Chevron, BP, Shell and oth-
ers invest the billions of
windfall profits made over
the past decades. Let this
money go for a better,
cleaner world instead of
squandering it looking for
the last drop of petroleum


on earth or fighting im-
moral and illegal wars.

Save Beverly Hills
After attending the
March general meeting of
the Beverly Hills Civic As-
sociation and being a mem-
ber for more than 10 years,
the association that is -
according to its by-laws -
the object of which is to
promote the goodwill, in-
terests and welfare of Bev-
erly Hills, is no longer
such.
An association that is let-
ting a community deterio-
rate at a rapid pace due to
the so-called lack of funds
needed to continue legally
enforce deed restrictions is
no longer viable to its
members. The substantial
amount of past and present
dues paid by its members
is being held in CDs. This
money should be used for
the benefit of the entire
community and when
legally needed, be used for


that purpose. The ex-
penses of an attorney and
court costs are justified.
After this meeting, many
longtime members decided
not to renew their dues. If
this decision holds true,
the civic association will
no longer be. Is it really
worth any amount of
money to disband an or-
ganization which has been
in existence for 46 years?
The civic association was
once the backbone of the
community but for reasons
unknown to many, has fal-
tered on its responsibili-
ties to its members. This
has only been for approxi-
mately the past two years.
Whether it's a win or
lose situation, it's worth
the dues money of its mem-
bers to try to get our com-
munity back to its original
state. Money placed in a
bank account will indeed
earn interest, but what
good will interest do to
benefit the community?

Bad judgment
Reading about the
budget deficit here in
Florida just confirms to
me that the policies of the
last 10 years have failed
us and left our state in the
worst economic crisis
since the Depression
years. The Bush-Crist eco-
nomic policies just have
not worked and they need
to be reformed.
The Republicans' fiscal
mismanagement has
placed many of our work-
ing families in fear of job
loss because instead of
eliminating wasteful
spending, it appears they
would rather clean up
their mess by laying off
thousands of our police,
firefighters and teachers.
I do not understand why
we need to spend $2 mil-
lion on TV ads to promote
Attorney General Bill Mc-
Collum at the expense of
public safety, or why we
need to waste money pro-


viding the governor FHP
planes to go.on vacations
or sporting events. This
just appears to be an
abuse in government
spending, nothing else.
I do not understand why
the Republicans could not
have avoided much of this
financial mess by closing
tax loopholes that are
used by large corpora-
tions. It seems unfair for
corporations like Wendy's
to be allowed to shift their
reported income from our
state to one that does not
have a corporate income
tax.
I believe closing this
loophole would rightly
make corporations pay
their fair share, and bring
an additional $400 million
of much-needed tax dol-
lars to our state.
If the Republicans
would eliminate sales tax
exemptions that are used
by special interests - this
one action could bring bil-
lions of dollars into our

state. Exemptions such as

The Republicans lost
control of Congress in
Washington, D.C., because
the voters tired of their
bad judgment and irre-
sponsibility in performing
their service. It appears to
me that the Republicans
in our state legislature are
doing the same.

Nine years



later, man



faces charges


Nine years ago today, a
car wreck on Gospel Is-
land Road in Inverness
killed a '17-year-old and in-
jured three others, including
the driver.
When the investigation of the
crash was completed over a
year later, a warrant was is-
sued for the driver, charging
him with driving under the in-
fluence with
manslaughter and
serious injury.
But by the time THE I
the warrant was is-
sued, the driver, Man ch
Joshua Wayne An- fatal
derson, was no extradite
longer in Citrus Co
County. His father,
a former Citrus OUR 0
County sheriff's Tir
deputy, had taken rth
a law enforcement
job in Wyoming,
and Anderson had


gone with his parents to
Wyoming.
It took five months for Ander-
son to be arrested in Wyoming.
After he was arrested, Citrus
County authorities asked that
bail be denied, but a Wyoming
judge disagreed and set a
$5,000 bond. Prosecutors from'
Citrus County filed extradition
papers, but doctors in Wyoming
concluded that Anderson was


Greenbelt groaner
On Tuesday, March 24, some-
one wrote in to the Sound Off say-
ing they had a problem with the
Sugarmill Woods Greenbelt. If
that person would like to call my
number, which is 382-1486, I'll
see what I can do to help them.
Illegal support
This is in reference to f N3
the baby that was given . '
away down there in Plant
City. Nice to see that the
baby was recovered, but
the lady had given up the
baby because the other
woman was posing herself
as an immigration officer.
So, obviously, I would think C -. -
that those parents are ille-
gal immigrants and they U,
were at the health care
center. So people in America really
need to realize how much money
the illegal immigrants are costing
us, the American taxpayers. They're
taking our jobs. They're taking our
tax money because they're getting
free health care. We would be a
whole lot better off if we weren't
supporting the illegal immigrants.
We need to do something.
Routes for all
I'm complaining about the pilot
program on the fixed bus route.
How about the people that live off
(County Road) 486? There is no
bus route here. We would like
that, too.


Is

e


medically unable to be extra-
dited due to injuries from the
crash, and a Wyoming judge
ruled that he could not be ex-
tradited until his condition im-
proved.
Anderson and his family later
moved to Michigan, and efforts
by Citrus County prosecutors to
return him to face charges ap-
peared at a standstill. Finally,
in January of this
year, authorities
in Michigan
SSUE: served the war-
rant on Anderson,
arged in who now lives in
crash the very small,
Ito Citrus town of Black
nty. River, in the
upper Michigan
PINION: peninsula. In late
e to March, he arrived
ca-se. in Citrus County.
He faces arraign-
ment on April 24.
There is an old
adage that "justice delayed is
justice denied." In this case,
justice has certainly been de-
layed. Regardless, he is now
here and he deserves a fair
trial on the merits of the case.
We can hope that this trial
will begin without undue delay
so that justice in this case will
be served. Whatever the final
decision of the trial, it is long
past time for it to be held.


Dumping debris
The city or county should check
on whoever is cutting the lawn and
doing the tree service for the Arbor
Trail Rehab Center there on Turner
Camp Road. They are, instead of
hauling the debris away to the
county dump, they are dumping
the leaves across the street, think-


ND


0579


ing that they're doing the
people that park there a
favor, but all we do is track
all those leaves into the
car. And the city should
make them pick them up
and take it away. And if
they're the ones that trim
the palm trees, they're
dumping those branches
across the street, also,
and somebody else will
have to pick them up.

Open office


Love him or hate him, Barack
Obama, our president, has opened
up the Oval Office and the goings-
on in Washington more than any
president I have ever witnessed in
my 86 years. At least we know what
is going on. It is very nice not to
have these closed-door meetings ...
We really should get behind this
president because I think he has us
on the road to recovery, It's going to
take a while and it's going to be not
an easy job, but it can be done if
we get behind this man, who I be-
lieve is the first honest president
we've had in there in my memory.

On torture and fool's gold


ur story so far: In the wake
of the Sept. 11, 2001, ter-
rorist attacks, hundreds of
men identified as members of al-
Qaida were captured and impris-
oned at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
There, they were ,_
subjected to sexual
humiliation, sleep
deprivation, dehy-
dration, extreme -.
temperatures, water-
boarding, being
chained to the floor
for hours in their
own waste, and other
so-called "enhanced
interrogation" tech- Leonard
niques, even as the OTHI
president was assur- VOIC
ing the world that we
don't torture because
we are America and America
doesn't do that sort of thing.
The president was, of course,
lying. And having thus sold our
national honor, you might won-
der what we received in ex-
change.
The answer: nothing.
At least, not if the case .of one
Abu Zubaida is in any way repre-
sentative. According to a March
29 report in the Washington Post,
U.S. officials were convinced
they had themselves a real, live
al-Qaida leader in Zubaida, who
was captured in Pakistan in 2002.
Under pressure from the Bush
White House to get something
out of him, they resorted to wa-
terboarding and other coercive
measures.
Out came a flood of names and
plots and details. Security was
tightened, millions were spent
chasing it all down and all of it


I
]


was for nothing. Every investiga-
tion launched as a result of Abu
Zubaida's revelations fizzled. It
turned out that, far from being an
al-Qaida leader, he was a mid-
level associate. The Post says
most of the information
he gave that proved in
any way useful came
during ordinary interro-
gation. The things he
said while being tor-
tured by the nation that
does not torture were
apparently just to make
the pain stop.
The Post report is but
Pitts the latest in a litany of
ER revelations all suggest-
ES ing the same thing: that
in the wake of Sept. 11,
a frightened nation be-
trayed one of its core principles
- the rule of law - for the fool's
gold of security.
We tortured and then rational-
ized with stark illogic. Indeed, it's
worth remembering that when
this debate was at its zenith, pro-
ponents, including columnist Cal
Thomas, Congressman Tom Tan-
credo and Supreme Court Justice
Antonin Scalia, defended torture
by pointing out how well it seems
to work for counterterrorism ex-
pert Jack Bauer. One wondered
sometimes if they were aware
that Jack Bauer is a character on
a TV show, "24."
And it occurs to me that if
we're going to use TV characters
to frame this debate, "M-A-S-H"
might be a better choice. Our
Bush-era policy on torture, after
all, suggests nothing so much as a
White House run by Frank
Burns, the supercilious super-pa-


triot who saw enemies of Amer-
ica's goodness behind every mess
hall and latrine and chased them
with a spectacular zealotry
unimpinged by logic, common
sense or simple decency.
Burns was, of course, a carica-
ture of the Red Scare America of
the 1950s where forces of para-
noia and fear led by Sen. Joe Mc-
Carthy fought supposed
"commie" infiltration by sur-
veilling, blacklisting, haranguing
and harassing countless innocent
Americans, ruining their liveli-
hoods and lives while doing little
harm to any actual communists.
And if, 20 years later, that mind-
set had become a recognizable
comic "type" played for laughs,
that doesn't mean the nation's ca-
pacity to again lose its mind to
fear and paranoia had lessened
in the slightest.
That is what we are learning
here, as revelations of Bush-era
excesses continue to drip like
water upon the stone of public
conscience. People came out of
the McCarthy era marveling at
how easily fear and paranoia had
stampeded us into surrendering,
principles that are supposed to
define us. Mark my words: We
will look back on this era the'
same way.
Once again, we have sold our.
national honor for fool's gold.
And once again, we will live to
rue the deal as fools usually do.

LETTERS to the Editor


Parkway benefits
It was shocking news for citi-
zens of Citrus and Hernando
counties to hear that the work
on remaining 27-mile stretch of
Suncoast Parkway in Citrus
County has been suspended by
state government. The official
reason was the economic diffi-
culty of the state. Florida state
government seemed to be say-
ing it has never heard about
federal stimulation plan.
Since February, President
Obama and Congress have ap-
propriated $787 billion for eco-
nomic stimulus plan. Over the
next 18 months, the government
is expected to spend nearly $30
billion for nation's highway in-
frastructure in order to create
jobs.
National jobless rate, 8 per-
cent as of March 7, was the high-
est in 26 years. Yet, jobless rate
in Citrus County and Hernando
County has been far worse than
that: it has been 11.4 percent
and 12.4 percent, respectively
Unemployed workers in both
counties are mostly people who
lost jobs through no perform-
ance fault of their own. What is
more, getting a decent job in
above two counties are as diffi-
cult as a camel to go through an
eye of needle.
To get the federal funds for
$140 million for the final design
work and land acquisition for
the Suncoast Parkway, Citrus
County commissioners must
write to the governor and Ray-
mond Ashe, director of govern-
ment affairs for turnpike
enterprise, Florida state gov-
ernment, so that state govern-
ment would submit a grant


proposal to the federal govern-
ment for construction of Sun-
coast Parkway as soon as
possible.
Construction of Suncoast
Parkway in Citrus County will
not only create much-needed
jobs in the county but also miti-
gate the hectic traffic conges-
tion of U.S. 19. The real benefits
will be bringing more business
into the county and more kids
will go to bed without hunger.

American hero
It is quite an honor Cohn and
Clift in their March 15 "Other
Voices" column bestowed on
Rush Limbaugh by comparing
him to the great patriot of yes-
teryear, Sen. Joe McCarthy.
Limbaugh is a loud voice sup-
porting conservatism, but he is
basically a salesman. His week-
day three-hour offerings are
riddled with commercials. He
sells everything from mat-
tresses to automobiles. It's hard
to take him seriously.
On the other hand, McCarthy
spent his entire tenure in the
U.S. Senate outing communists
hell bent on subverting the U.S.
government. Federal depart-
ments, especially the State De-
partment, were riddled with
people like Alger Hiss, Lauch-
lin Currie, Owen Lattimore and
scores more identified as com-
munist foot soldiers in service
of the Soviet Union. Conceiv-
ably, if it weren't for McCarthy,
we would be a Russian satellite
today.
Reference is made in the


Cohn-Clift article to McCarthy's
criticism of Gen. George Mar-
shall (Dwight D. Eisenhower's
mentor) for allowing the com-
munists to take control of main-,
land China. The argument can
be made that had Marshall not
pulled the rug out from under
Gen. Chiang Kai-shek, who
commanded the nationalist
forces against the communists,
China would not have aided the
North Koreans in that "forgot-
ten war" waged against South
Korea. That war was all but
won by U.S. forces, who pushed
the North Koreans out of Seoul
and all the way back to the Yulu
River in the north. When the
Chinese communists entered
the war, the U.S. suffered huge
casualties (along with the South
Koreans) and we had to settle
for an armed truce, which is
still in place today.
Yes, McCarthy is a national
hero though his detractors
slimed him when he was alive
and ever since his death. It was
not so much political as per-
sonal. Because of his dogged
determination to cleanse the
government of communists, he
incurred the scorn of politi-
cians of the day who felt up-
staged in the political arena -
Millard Tydings, Stuart Syming-
ton and Harry Truman to name
a few.
The Cohn-Clift article had
two purposes in mind: to set up
Rush Limbaugh as a target to
be defamed publicly by the ul-
traleft and to continue the
smear of the honorable Joseph
McCarthy, an American hero.

Deaths drop on U.S. highways


Fatalities at lowest levels since 1961


Associated Press


WASHINGTON -An ec
downturn can have a brig
U.S. highway deaths in 200
their lowest level since
Kennedy was president
The recession and $4 pe
gas meant people drove
save more. Experts alsi
record high seat belt use,
enforcement of drunken
laws and the work of ac
groups that encourage saf
ing habits.
Preliminary figures be


leased by the government today
show that 37,313 people died in
onomic motor vehicle traffic crashes last
ht side: year. That's 9.1 percent lower than
)8 fell to the year before, when 41,059 died,
John F and the fewest since 1961, when
there were 36,285 deaths.
r gallon A different measure, also offer-
less to ing good news, was the fatality
o cited rate, the number of deaths per 100
tighter million vehicle miles traveled. It
driving was 1.28 in 2008, the lowest on
advocacy record. A year earlier it was 1.36.
er driv- "The silver lining in a bad econ-
omy is that people drive less, and
*ing re- so the number of deaths go down,"


said Adrian Lund, president of the
Insurance Institute for Highway
Safety. "Not only do they drive less
but the kinds of driving they do
tend to be less risky - there's less
discretionary driving."
Fatalities fell by more than 14
percent in New England, and by
10 percent or more in many states
along the Atlantic seaboard, parts
of the Upper Midwest and the
West Coast, according to the Na-
tional Highway Traffic Safety Ad-
ministration.
"Americans should really be
pleased that everyone has
stepped up here in order to make
driving safer and that people are
paying attention to that," Trans-


portation Secretary Ray LaHood
said. "
In the past, tough economic
times have brought similar de-
clines in roadway deaths. Fatali-
ties fell more than 16 percent from
1973 to 1974 as the nation dealt
with the oil crisis and inflation.
Highway deaths dropped nearly
11 percent from 1981 to 1982 as
President Ronald Reagan battled
a recession.
The government said vehicle
miles traveled in 2008 fell by about
3.6 percent, to 2.92 trillion miles,
indicating many people adjusted
their driving habits as gas prices
fluctuated and the economy tum-
bled. The number of miles driven


by motorists had risen steadily
over the past three decades.
The figures are preliminary;'
final numbers and state-by-state
totals are expected later in the
year.
Several states have pushed for
tougher seat belt laws that allow
law enforcement officers to stop
motorists whose sole offense was
failing to buckle up. In 27 states
and the District of Columbia,
there are such enforcement laws.

Korean


rocket


fizzles

Obama urges

quick action
Associated Press
UNITED NATIONS - The
U.S. and its allies sought pun-
ishment Sunday for North
Korea's defiant launch of a
rocket that apparently fizzled
into the Pacific, holding an
emergency U.N. meeting in
response to concerns the
country was testing long-
range missile technology
President Barack Obama,
faced with his first global se-
curity crisis, called for an in-
ternational response and
condemned North Korea for
threatening the peace and
stability of nations "near and
far" Minutes after liftoff,
Japan requested the emer-
gency Security Council ses-
sion in New York,
U.S. and South Korean of-
ficials' claim the entire
rocket, including whatever
payload it carried, ended up
in the ocean but many world
leaders fear the launch indi-
cates the capacity to fire a
long-range missile, Py-
ongyang claims it launched
an experimental common i-
cations satellite into orbit
Sunday and that it's transmit-
ting data and patriotic songs.
"North Korea broke the
rules, once again, by testing a
rocket that could be used for
long-range missiles," Obama
said in Prague, "It creates in-
stability in their region,
around the world, This
provocation underscores the
need for action, not just this
afternoon in the UN, Secu-
rity Council, but in our deter-
mination to prevent the
spread of these weapons."
Using a possible loophole
in U.N. sanctions imposed
after the 2006 nuclear test
that barred the North from
ballistic missile activity, the
Pyongyang government
claimed it was exercising its
right to peaceful space devel-

Storm hits Corn Belt with heavy snow, strong wind


Associated Press
OMAHA, Neb. - A storm sys-
tem brought strong wind and
more than a foot of snow to the
Corn Belt states over the week-
end, creating snow drifts several
feet high and knocking out power
to thousands in Nebraska.
The spring storm hit hardest in


western Nebraska, where the Na-
tional Weather Service reported
16 inches of snow and wind gust-
ing 50 mph.
The Nebraska Public Power
District said about 3,000 cus-
tomers were without electricity
at the height of the storm, but
power had been restored to all
but 300 by Sunday


The system dumped 11 inches
of snow on Mullen, Neb,, and
winds created drifts up to 7 feet
high.
The storm was expected later
Sunday to move into Iowa, where
up to 10 inches of snow was ex-
pected near Webster City and up
to 7 inches in northern parts of
the state.

Treasury chief

speaks out

Associated Press
WASHINGTON - The
government may require
new faces in executive
suites at banks requiring
'exceptional assistance" in
the future, Treasury Secre-
tary Timothy Geithner said
Sunday.
Critics of the Obama ad!-
ministration's move last
weekend to force out the
chairman of General Motors
Corp., Rick Wagoner, as a
condition for possible addi-
tional federal loans say that
strong government interven-
tion contrasts with measures
placed on the financial in-
dustry in return for billions
in infusions,
Geithner denied there
was a double standard and
put banks on notice that they
may need to change leader-
ship teams in exchange for
accepting more money in
the future,
"If, in the future, banks
need exceptional assistance
in order to get through this,
then we'll make sure that as-
sistance comes with condil-
tions, not just to protect the
taxpayer but to make sure
this is the kind ofrestructur-
ing necessary for them to
emerge stronger," he told
**F'ace the Nation" on CBS,
"And where that requires a
change of management of
the board, we'll do that." ,
The treasury chief said
that is what has happened at
some big institutions that
are getting large amounts of
government aid. They in-
clude the mortgage compa-
nies Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac, which were
placed into conservatorship
by the government last Sep-
tember, and insurer Ameri-
can International Group
Inc., the recipient of more
than $170 billion in help

Obama outlines sweeping goal of nuclear-free world


Associated Press
PRAGUE - Declaring
the future of mankind at
stake, President Barack
Obama on Sunday said all
nations must strive to rid
the world of nuclear arms
and that the U.S. had a
"moral responsibility" to
lead because no other coun-
try has used one.
A North Korean rocket
launch upstaged Obama's
idealistic call to action, de-
livered in the capital of the
Czech Republic, a former
satellite of the Soviet Union.
But Obama dismissed those
who say the spread of nu-
clear weapons, "the most
dangerous legacy of the
Cold War," cannot be
checked.


"This goal will not be
reached quickly - perhaps
not in my lifetime," he told a
cheering crowd of more
than 20,000 in the historic
square outside the Prague
Castle gates. We "must ig-
nore the voices who tell us
that the world cannot
change. We have to insist,
'Yes, we can."'
Few experts think it's pos-
sible to completely eradi-
cate nuclear weapons, and
many say it wouldn't be a
good idea even if it could be
done. Even backward na-
tions such as North Korea
have shown they can de-
velop bombs, given enough
time.
But a program to drasti-
cally cut the world atomic
arsenal carries support

President Barack Obama walks with first lady Michelle
Obama on Sunday before delivering a public speech to thou-
sands of people on the Hradcany Square In Prague, Czech
Republic.
from scientists and lions of the venue for his address a
the foreign policy world, nation that peacefully threw
Obama embraced that step off communism and helped
as his first goal and chose as topple the Soviet Union, de-


spite its nuclear power.
But he said his own coun-
try, with its huge arsenal and
its history using two atomic
bombs against Japan in 1945,
had to lead the world. He
said the U.S. has a "moral re-
sponsibility" to start taking
steps now,
"To reduce our warheads
and stockpiles, we will nego-
tiate a new Strategic Arms
Reduction Treaty with the
Russians this year," he
promised.
The nuclear-free cause is
more potent in Europe than
in the United States, where
even Democratic politicians
such as Obama must avoid
being labeled as soft or naive
if they endorse it. Still,
Obama said he would resub-
mit a proposed Comprehen-
sive Test Ban Treaty to the
Senate for ratification. The
pact was signed by President


Bill Clinton but rejected by
the Senate in 1999.
While espousing long-
term goals, Obama took care
to promise that America
would not lower its defenses
while others are pursuing a
nuclear threat He warned
both North Korea, which has
tested a nuclear weapon,
and Iran, which the West
says is developing one, that
the world was against them.
Obama gave his most un-
equivocal pledge yet to pro-
ceed with building a missile
defense system in Europe, so
long as Iran pursues nuclear
weapons, a charge it denies.
That shield is to be based in
the Czech Republic and
Poland. Those countries are
on Russia's doorstep, and
the missile shield has con-
tributed to a significant de-
cline in US.-Russia
relations.

Lincicome's eagle claims LPGA major

on Sunday, capturing her first vic-
tory in a major.
Never worse than three strokes
behind in the final round, Linci-
come stayed close as McPherson
and Cristie Kerr traded the lead
back and forth on a perfect day at
Mission Hills.
Trailing by one, the 23-year-old
Lincicome broke through with an
amazing sequence of shots on the
par-5 18th. After hitting a boom-
ing drive down the middle of the
fairway, she launched her ap-
proach shot across the water and
onto the upper part of the green,
with the ball curling down just
above the hole.
"Please be good," Lincicome
said as she watched the ball fly
through the desert air, then smiled
when it was.
She then calmly sank the putt to
finish with a 3-under 69, pumped


her fist and hugged McPherson,
who finished tied for second with
Kerr one shot back
It was the third career victory
for Lincicome, whose previous
best finish in a major was a tie for
second at this tournament in 2007.
Playing in the all-American
final threesome, she became the
first U.S. winner in the last six
women's majors. Kerr was the last
to do so in the 2007 U.S. Open.
After receiving her trophy, Lin-
cicome joined hands with her cad-
die and father and jumped into
the lake surrounding the 18th.
Lincicome, who took the first-
round lead Thursday with a 66,
finished with a 9-under 279.

ABOVE: Jeff Gordon (24) passes Reed Sorenson as they come out of turn four Sunday during the Sprint Cup Samsung 500 at Texas
Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas. 1W: Gordon celebrates his first victory in 18 months by donning a cowboy hat.


Gordon nabs 1st

win in 18 months

Associated Press
FORT WORTH, Texas -
Jeff Gordon ended the longest
winless drought of his career,
beating Hendrick Motorsports
teammate Jimmie Johnson to
finally win at Texas.
Gordon won for the first time
in 48 races Sunday at the 1V2_-
mile, high-banked Texas Motor
Speedway, one of only two ac-
tive tracks where the four-time
NASCAR Sprint Cup cham-
pion had never won a race.
It was the 17th Cup race at
Texas, the track where Gor-
don has the only two last-place
finishes in his 552 career
starts. One of the 43rd-place
finishes came last spring be-
fore he was the runner-up to
Carl Edwards in the fall race
after winning the pole.
"How ironic is this that
when we go into this streak
and we end it here in Texas, a
place that's just eluded us for
so long," Gordon said. "Incred-
ible team effort. This whole
year has been amazing. What a
great car. I've never had a car
like this at Texas. We finally
had one and put it in position."


Gordon, already the season
points leader with four top-five
finishes in the first six races,
did a few burnouts on the
frontstretch before grabbing
the checkered flag and taking
his No. 24 Chevrolet for a long-
awaited victory lap - his first
since October 2007 at Lowe's
Motor Speedway in Charlotte.
The only track he now has-
n't won at is Homestead. He'll
have to wait until the season
finale in November for a
chance to change that.
During interviews in Vic-
tory Lane at Texas, before fir-
ing the celebratory
six-shooters, Gordon had to
sneak a peek at the logos on
his car to remind himself of
everybody he needed to thank.
It had been a long time, espe-
cially by his standards.
Rick Hendrick wasn't there,
so Gordon tried to talked to
him by cell phone from Vic-
tory Lane. Also missing were
his wife and daughter.
"I'm just thrilled. I can't
wait to get home to Ingrid and
Ella," Gordon said. "I know
(Ella) was saying 'Go poppy go'
all day long. I hate that they
couldn't come."
Gordon won by 0.542 sec-
onds over Johnson with an av-
erage speed of 146.372 mph for
his 82nd career victory, one


behind Cale Yarborough for
fifth on the all-time list. Bobby
Allison and Darrell Waltrip
are tied for third on that list
with 84 victories.
Edwards, going for his third
consecutive Cup victory at
Texas, was leading when the
final caution came out be-
cause David Stremme got
loose and spun coming out of
the third turn with 30 laps to


go in the 334-lap race.
But Edwards' crew had
problems changing tires and
he dropped 10 spots to 11th
coming off pit row. Gordon
had a flawless stop, moving
from third to first and staying
ahead the rest of the race.

only got his ride

dyCar win. "This place has been
bad to me. It feels so good to fi-
nally get to the end of this race.
"And it's great to start off the
year like this."
Hunter-Reay, who lost his ride
with Rahal Letterman Racing at
the end of last season when the
team lost its sponsorship, was
signed for 2009 at the last minute
by the team owned by Indy Racing
League founder TonyGeorge.
He made the most of his oppor-
tunity, giving George his best fin-
ish as a car owner.
"It's unreal how the last few
days have gone," Hunter-Reay
said. "I met with the team for the
first time on Sunday and showed
up here Friday and they were still
trimming down my seat."
Hunter-Reay, who won on the
road course at Watkins Glen last
year, said he didn't want to take
any big chances as he chased
Briscoe on the treacherous track
in the waning laps.


UNC, Michigan State set to meet for NCAA title


Heels, Spartansfind

themselves in more

than just a game

Associated Press
DETROIT - The bracket says North
Carolina vs. Michigan State.
At times, though, the Tar Heels may
feel like they're going up against
something more than just another
basketball team.
From the coach on down, the Spar-


tans (31-6) know a win in the NCAA title
game on a court 90 miles from their
campus won't fix the state's economic
freefall, won't put anybody back to
work But there will be 72,000 people in
Ford Field, site of the Final Four, come
Monday night. Most will be rooting for
Michigan State.
And winning, as they say, can be con-
tagious.
"When you go through hard times,
you pray for something to get you out,"
Spartans guard Travis Walton said. "I'm
sure they didn't pray for Michigan State
to get to the Final Four or the national
championship game, but they probably


have been praying to have things to
take their mind off of it."
Michigan ranks 51st out of 50 states
(and District of Columbia) in the latest
unemployment figures. Detroit is the
hub of an auto industry on life support,
a civic symbol of an economic system
that has come off the tracks.

Rays trade Hammel to
Rockies for Rodriguez
BOSTON - Tampa Bay
traded pitcher Jason Hammel
to the Colorado Rockies for
minor league pitcher Aneury
Rodriguez on Sunday, meaning
Jeff Niemann becomes the
Rays' fifth starter.
Niemann, who is 6-foot-9,
was the No. 4 overall draft pick
in 2004.
Hammel went 4-4 with two
saves and a 4.60 ERA in 40
games last season. The 26-
year-old righty made five starts
in April for the AL champions
while Scott Kazmir was on the
disabled list.
Rodriguez, a 21-year-old
righty, was 9-10 with a 3.74
ERA for Class A Modesto last
year. He was an All-Star in the
California League and ranked
second with 139 strikeouts.

It will be the just the sec-

the Red Sox, who traveled
to Tokyo last year and had a
3-4 record by the time they

"No one is going to take the

Rocco Baldelli, who played
the first five years of his ca-
reer in Tampa Bay "It's really
a top-notch team. Everyone is
prepared for them to be in it

Red Sox pitcher John
Smoltz, who was on the At-
lanta Braves in 1991, when
they went to the World Se-
ries a year after finishing in
last place with a 65-97
record, said "Tampa Bay
showed last year "it was the
real deal."
"It's rare that you have a
club go from where they
were to where they're an
elite club," said Smoltz,
who spent his first 20 years
in Atlanta before coming to
the AL as a free agent. "In
this division and this
league, that's going to be
harder to do."
Although Smoltz will start
the season on the disabled
list to recover from right
shoulder surgery, he's look-
ing forward to the tradi-
tional introductions and his
first taste of playing for the
Red Sox.

Mavericks drop 140 points on eclipsed Suns


Associated Press

DALLAS - The Phoenix
Suns might as well get
started on their offseason
plans. Jason Kidd made
sure of it
Kidd had 19 points, a sea-
son-high 20 assists and a
major career milestone - all
in just three quarters - send-
ing Dallas to a 140-116 victory
over Phoenix on Sunday, vir-
tually assuring the Mavericks
of grabbing no worse than the
final playoff spot in the West-
ern Conference.
Dallas owns a four-game
lead with five games left. Be-
cause the Mavs won the sea-
son series, they hold the
tiebreaker over the Suns, so
Phoenix must finish 5-0 and
Dallas 0-5 for the teams to
trade places in the standings.
Kidd's 14th assist gave
him 10,142 for his career,
passing Magic Johnson for
No. 3. on the NBA's list.


Among those who gave him
a standing ovation was
broadcaster Mark Jackson,
who is second with 10,334.
Cavaliers 101, Spurs 81
CLEVELAND - LeBron
James scored 38 points, Mo
Williams and Delonte West
added 22 apiece and the NBA's
best home team avoided its first
three-game losing streak.
Embarrassed in a 29-point
loss in Orlando, a humbling de-
feat that came one day after a
humiliating loss at lowly Wash-
ington, Cleveland played with
purpose at both ends and im-"
proved to 37-1 at home.
Tony Parker scored 24 for
San Antonio but got no help
from Manu Ginobili (four points)
or Tim Duncan, who had just
six and didn't score after the
2:56 mark of the first quarter.
Pistons 104, Bobcats 97
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -
Will Bynum scored a franchise-


record 26 points in the fourth
quarter to lead Detroit past the
Charlotte Bobcats and putting
the Pistons a step closer to
locking up the final playoff spot
in the Eastern Conference.
Bynum scored the final 13
points for the Pistons and fin-
ished with a career-high 32
points, and also had seven as-
sists. He made all six of his
field-goal attempts and went
14-for-16 from the free-throw
line in the fourth quarter.
Knicks 112, Raptors 103
TORONTO - Wilson Chan-
dler scored 17 points, David
Lee added 16 points and 10 re-
bounds and the New York
Knicks beat the Raptors, elimi-
nating Toronto from the playoffs.
It came one day after the
Knicks saw their postseason
hopes eni with a 102-95 home
loss to the Raptors.
Chris Bosh had 31 points
and 14 rebounds for Toronto,


whose season-high six-game
winning streak came to an end.
Jazz 108, Hornets 94
NEW ORLEANS - Ronnie
Brewer scored 23 points and
the Utah Jazz completed a con-
vincing season sweep of the
New Orleans Hornets.
Deron Williams had 21 points
and 11-assists for Utah.
David West had 23 points
and 12 rebounds for New Or-
leans, which could have
clinched a playoff spot with a
victory, but inXtead lost its sec-
ond straight game. Chris Paul
had 19 points and 12 assists for
the Hornets.
Nuggets 110,
T-wolves 87
MINNEAPOLIS - Carmelo
Anthony scored 23 points and
the Denver Nuggets easily won
their seventh in a row, beating
the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Nuggets extended their
lead to two games over San


Antonio for the No. 2 seed in
the Western Conference after
the Spurs lost to Cleveland ear-
lier in the day.
Rockets 102,
Trail Blazers 88
HOUSTON - Yao Ming had
21 points and 12 rebounds to
lead Houston past Portland,
just hours after the Trail Blazers
got their first playoff berth since
2003 when Dallas beat Phoenix
140-116.
With their playoff spot as-
sured, the Trail Blazers didn't
lead after early in the first quar-
ter, but wouldn't go away. They
made a run each time Houston
got a comfortable lead until the
Rockets finally put it away in
the fourth quarter.
Nets 96, 76ers 67
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.
- Vince Carter scored 15
points and the New Jersey


Nets kept their playoff hopes
alive for a couple more days by
handing the Philadelphia 76ers
their worst loss of the season.
The Nets (32-45) were
pushed to the brink of elimina-
tion while their game was being
contested when the Detroit Pis-
tons (37-40) beat the Charlotte
Hornets 104-97, but they
stayed mathematically alive by�
getting double figures from
seven players.
Pacers 117, Thunder 99
OKLAHOMA CITY - Danny
Granger scored 24 points, Troy
Murphy added 22 points and
nine rebounds, and the Indiana
Pacers kept their slim playoff
hopes alive.
Indiana shot 50 percent or
better for the fifth time in seven
games and put the game away
by outscoring Oklahoma City
33-19 in the third quarter.
Roy Hibbert added 17 points,
Jarrett Jack scored 14 and
Brandon Rush had 13 points.


Long road to Skyview Charity Championship


T he 2009 Skyview
Charity Tennis Tour-
nament is history
again. It is nice to have a
large draw and this event
actually had two of them;
the Open (18 teams) as well
as the B division (16 teams).


It does mean

order to win the

have to play at
least four times.
That is a long

the national semifinals Sunday
night and end Courtney Paris'
stellar career.
Down 12 points at halftime,
Louisville got back into the
game with a 15-1 run while the
Sooners' shooting went south
-just 26.9 percent in the sec-
ond half. Still, Oklahoma had a
chance to win it in the final sec-
onds with Nyeshia Stevenson's
good look on a 3-point attempt,
but it rattled out.
"We have not one high
school All-American on this
team, but these guys have
worked so hard," McCoughtry
said. "I'm so proud of them."
Keshia Hines added 10 re-
bounds and nine points for the
Cardinals (34-4), who'll face un-
beaten and top-ranked Con-
necticut or Stanford in
Tuesday's final.
The four-time All-American
Paris had promised to pay back
the cost of her four-year schol-
arship if the Sooners failed to
win the title. She had 14 points
and 16lebounds, and left the
court in tears after exchanging
hugs with McCoughtry and
huddling with'her team for a
final time.
Ashley Paris, Courtney's twin
sister, had 16 points and seven
rebounds for Oklahoma.
Louisville looked nervous
while enduring an awful first
half. The Cardinals fell behind
16-2 after 7Y minutes and fin-
ished the half down by 12 after
season-worst 22-percent field-
goal shooting.

when he got caught in traf-
fic and Edwards slid under
him into first. Tony Stewart
got past Gordon a few laps
later and that was the run-
ning order when Stremme
spun out.
Greg Biffle finished third,
followed by Stewart and
Matt Kenseth. Edwards fin-
ished 10th, a spot ahead of
polesitter David Reutimann.
Reutimann, driving a No.
00 Toyota for Michael Wal-
trip, didn't even lead the first
lap. Gordon did, passing him
as they crossed the start-fin-
ish-line for the first time.

clearing a wall onto Gerald
Ford Drive.
Lindsey Wright (70) was
fourth at 6 under, while
Suzann Pettersen (66) and
Meaghan Francella (69) tied
for fifth at 5 under
Defending champion
Lorena Ochoa shot a 66 for
her best round of the tourna-
ment and finished in a tie for
12th at 1 under.
Lincicome opened the final
round with seven straight
pars before two straight
birdies put her in contention.
Kerr started the round one
shot behind McPherson, but
had a three-shot lead after
five holes despite some way-
ward driving.
Kerr jumped into the lead
on the par-5 second hole, de-
spite driving into the rough
and failing to extricate her-
self with her second shot She
had a nice approach shot and

rematch of a game North
Carolina won 98-63 on Dec. 3
in the same building. Anyone
who turned the channel, or
turned the page, on that one
gets a pass. Izzo certainly has.
Michigan State was ex-
hausted (fourth game in
seven nights), injured (Goran
Suton was out and Delvon
Roe was hurting) and not
playing near its current level
back then, though the coach
figures if the Spartans had
been in better shape, they
still would have lost by 20.
"If we play good and they
play good, we're losing. That's
the way I look at it," Izzo said.
"I mean, I don't look at that in
the negative. They are the
best team in the country and
have earned that ranking
probably over the last year
and a half."
And, as both coaches ac-
knowledge, the Spartans
have a knack for taking oppo-
nents out of their 'A' game.

heading to No. 18, was trying
to hold on for her first LPGA
Tour victory when Linci-
come broke through.
McPherson calls Linci-
come "Bam-Bam" because of
the length of her drives, and
Lincicome lived up to it on
the 18th, where her drive left
her just 210 to the pin.
McPherson had a seesaw
day.
She lost her overnight lead
to Kerr on the second hole,
pulled into a tie by making
three birdies in four holes
spanning the turn, dropped
back when Kerr birdied the
par-3 14th, then jumped back
into the lead on the 15th when
Kerr took a double-bogey
after losing her ball out of
bounds, hitting it through


NCAA
Continued from Page B1

That's the backdrop for a
game in which Michigan
State finds itself a 7V2-point
underdog against a Carolina
team that has "national
champs" practically inked
across its uniforms.
Remember, this is the team
that some thought could go
undefeated this season when
Tyler -Hansbrough, Ty Law-
son, Wayne Ellington and
Danny Green all decided to
return after a bad loss to
Kansas at last year's Final
Four
Undefeated was never on
coach Roy Williams' list of
goals. Winning a champi-
onship, though? Always.
"If you thought it was easy,
you don't know what you're
talking about," Williams said.
"It's college basketball. There
hasn't been an undefeated
team since '76, and there
have been some really, really
good teams. I think this year
there were eight or 10 teams
or 12, I1 haven't studied it, that
could be playing Monday
night"
But it will be North Car-
olina (33-4), the preseason
No. 1 and top seed in the
South Regional, against
Michigan State, a less-hyped
and more overlooked No. 2
seed out of the Midwest
Though Michigan State
coach Tom Izzo won't sell his
team short - "you don't get
this far on grit," he said - he
also knows the deal. This is a


Gordon led six times for
105 laps in a race that fea-
tured 28 lead changes, nine
more than any other Cup
race this season and one
short of the Texas record.
Gordon led the first seven
laps, but gave up the lead be-
cause of some handling is-
sues with his car But he was
never too far from the front,
never out of the top 10.
Biffle, led three times for
93 laps and his Roush Fen-
way teammate Kenseth had
three leads for 55 laps. Ed-
wards one time in front
lasted nine laps.

sank an 18-foot birdie putt
while McPherson had a bogey
after her sand shot was short
of the green.
Kerr saved par on No. 3 de-
spite driving into the left
rough, getting a break when
her lie was in grass that had
been trampled by the gallery
Kerr birdied No. 4 with a
tricky 10-foot downhill putt,
then took a three-stroke lead
when McPherson bogeyed
the par-3 fifth hole by hitting
her tee shot into the water
McPherson's ball splashed
into the lake, popped out but
then rolled back into the
water A rules official said it
wasn't conclusive whether
the ball crossed the. hazard
line before rolling back into
the water McPherson had to
go back to the tee box rather
than the drop zone, and this
time hit the green and
helped herself by making a
25-foot putt

Duke at Cameron Indoor Sta-
dium. He's 5-2 in other road
games in the state of North
Carolina, 3-0 in Maui, 6-0 in
Florida and, yes, 1-0 at Ford
Field.
"I've tried to forget that
whole week," Izzo said. "In
fact, if you ask me, 2008 never
happened. I'm trying to move
ahead to 2009."
Led by Kalin Lucas, the Big
Ten player of the year, Wal-
ton, the Big Ten defensive
player of the year, and
steadily improving Raymar
Morgan (18 points, nine re-
bounds in the win over Con-
necticut on Saturday), the
Spartans are trying to close
out 2009 with a flourish.
The game comes 30 years
after Magic Johnson led MSU
to its first championship in
that historic meeting against
Indiana State and Larry Bird.
Like North Carolina, Michi-
gan State is also going for its
second title of the 2000s.
Mateen Cleaves led the
2000 title team. Though Izzo
has been back to the Final
Four three times since - for
a total of five in 11 years -
the Spartans haven't won an-
other championship.
Getting this group a title is
the real mission that con-
cerns the coach.
"I mean, the state, this city,
is very important to me," he
said. "But the cause right
now is for the Michigan State
players to win a champi-
onship, and hopefully the
repercussions from that will
help a lot of people. It's a feel-
good for a lot of people."


win over Connecticut on Sat-
urday.
"I mean, they're not exactly
Charlie's Donut Team,"
Williams said.
Williams figures if North
Carolina plays poorly in the
rematch, it won't be because
of the crowd.
This is a team that loves
playing in hostile environ-
ments and succeeds at it, too.
The Tar Heels have gone
67-14 away from home in the
four years since Hansbrough
and the seniors arrived in
2005, the season after Car-
olina's last championship.

Murray defeats
Djokovic for Sony crown
KEY BISCAYNE -Andy
Murray hit second serves for
aces, slipped passing shots
through the narrowest openings
and rarely made a mistake.
It was a performance worthy
of a trophy, and Murray became
the first Brit to win the Sony Eric-
sson Open by defeating Novak
Djokovic 6-2, 7-5 Sunday.
The Scotsman used his vast
repertoire of shots and took ad-
vantage of two wobbly stretches
by Djokovic, who struggled with
the 85-degree heat.
Djokovic rushed his strokes at
the start and fell behind 4-love.
In the second set, Murray rallied
from a break down at 1-4, over-
came two set points and won 10
of the final 11 points.
The No. 4-seeded Murray
committed only 19 unforced er-
rors, patiently mixing the pace
and direction of his shots to
keep the No. 3-seeded Djokovic
off balance.
"It's my way of dictating how
the match is getting played,"
Murray said. "A lot of people
might not necessarily think my
game looks the most aggressive
or offensive, but very few times
will I not have the points played
how I like them to be played."
Twice Murray hit second
serves for aces, and he threw in
several effective change-up first
serves, including a 76 mph ace.
He mixed in some power, too,
finishing one point with a leaping
overhead a la Pete Sampras.

Brian Aldiss, an English science-
fiction writer, said, "Why had I be-
come a writer in the first place?
Because I wasn't fit for society; I
didn't fit into the system."
At the bridge table, some hands
fit well together; others misfit.
There is a simple rule: Fits are
fantastic; misfits are miserable.
We try to find an eight-card
major-suit fit. But nine trumps are
much better than eight.
Why?
Take a 5-3 fit. If you draw trumps,
there will be none left on the board,
so there will be no ruff in the
shorter trump hand.
With a 5-4 fit, 90 percent of the
time you will have a trump or two
left and have a chance of a ruff in
the dummy to produce an extra

trump trick This deal is an exam-
ple.
When South opens two clubs,
North immediately thinks about a
slam.
However, if he starts with a two-
diamond "waiting" response,
which is so popular in certain quar-
ters these days, South must worry
that his partner has a Yarborough.
At least when North gives a posi-
tive response, both partners know
it is a slam deal if they can find a fit.
West leads a trump against seven
spades. South has 12 top tricks: five
spades, two hearts, two diamonds
and three clubs. And he has a two-
step routine to a 13th winner.
He can discard a heart on his
third club, then ruff the heart three
on the board. Before doing that,
though, he must draw trumps.
It is lucky that dummy has the
fourth trump.


Dear Annie: I recently
learned that during my
entire marriage my hus-
band has visited strip clubs,
touched other women and had
lap dances. He says he's sorry.
"Andy" has never
been the best husband
or father, but I thought
we had a good sex life.
I have been an inter-
ested and enthusiastic
sex partner Now that I
know about his past
activities, however, I
no longer enjoy sex
with him and just go
through the motions.
Andy and I have been
to counseling, but my ANN
trust has been shat- MARI
tered. I get plenty of at-
tention from men and
now find myself flirting back I just
want to warn others that this kind
of cheating behavior can ruin a

marriage. -Wife of a Sneak
Dear Wife: They know that.
What are you going to do about
your situation? You can remain
angry and keep punishing him.
You can get a divorce and start
over Or you can find a
way to forgive him so
you can work on your
marriage and make it
better. What you are
doing now is only
going to make you
both bitter and miser-
able.
Andy betrayed you.
Is he willing to take
his lumps and follow
the counselor's sug-
IE'S gestions? Can he do
.BOX anything to regain
your trust? His actions
must be completely
transparent, and you must be
willing to move forward. Other-
wise, sorry to say, it's over.


Dear Annie: You missed the
point with "Happy American
Bachelor." Many women out
there want a guy with a well-pay-
ing job. Sometimes, they flat-out
say you don't make enough
money Go to any online dating
site and you'll see women who
list income requirements much
higher than their own. And I re-
member a woman who was 4-
foot-10, yet her guy had to be
5-foot-9 or taller. They are too
picky.
It's not always the guys who are
doing something wrong. There
are so many unrealistic women
out there that I've - Given Up,
Too
Dear Given Up: Most women
want a man who isn't a freeload-
ing slacker. But for every woman
who insists on a 6-foot-tall mil-
lionaire, there are 10 others who
simply want a guy who is fun to
be with. Keep looking.


Toddy's HOROSCOPE


Your Birthday: Prudent management of
resources is always essential. Taking
chances might be quicker, but unsure.
Sensible handling is slower, but usually
guaranteed.
Aries (March 21-April 19) - Don't hesi-
tate to refuse to help another do some-
thing you know this person can handle
alone; be forthright.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) - Don't get
labeled a bad sport by acting in an unbe-
coming manner on the playing field -
keep your feelings in check.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) - Don't ex-
pect to get away with easy outs or taking
shortcuts when it comes to an important
project.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) - No matter
how tempting it is to blab about some


juicy, unflattering news you have, keep it
to yourself.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) - Beware of be-
having in a stingy manner when it comes
to sharing your resources or posses-
sions with someone who has always
treated you generously in the past.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Your traits
of fairness and objectivity could be ab-
sent owing to a hidden desire to see an-
other fail. It doesn't become you.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Don't be shy
about expressing your hidden needs
with someone who is sincerely inter-
ested in your welfare.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Be careful
not to put too much stock in the opinions
of negative friends. Nothing ventured,
nothing gained.


Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - When
you can laugh at your mistakes, you'll
find others will laugh with you, not at
you.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - People
aren't interested in hearing viewpoints
about which they are diametrically op-
posed, and they will stand up for their
position when challenged..
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Respect
another's privacy, and do not attempt to
pry information from anyone who is re-
luctant to make public certain personal
matters.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) - You can
either focus on the sunny side of life or
dwell on the negative; it's your choice.
Frankly, you do both well, so would you
rather be happy or sad?

Officials: Madonna
leaves Malawi
LILONGWE, Malawi -
Air traffic officials say
Madonna has left Malawi
after being rebuffed in
her attempt to adopt a
second
child
from the
poor
African
nation.
The of-
ficials say
the singer
Madonna left on
her private Gulfstream
jet Sunday morning
headed for London. Po-
lice roadblocks pre-
vented reporters from
approaching the airport
but one police officer
also says Madonna car-
ried David, her adopted
Malawian son, up the
steps to the plane.
All the officials spoke
on condition of
anonymity because they
were not authorized to
speak to journalists.
The singer's lawyer has
said that she will appeal
against a court ruling that
she is not eligible to
adopt a 3-year-old orphan
girl because she has not
lived in Malawi.

Redmond O'Neal was ar-
rested Sunday on suspi-
cion of bringing narcotics
into a jail facility after
admitting he was carry-
ing drugs. He is being
held on $25,000 bail.
Whitmore says a
deputy stopped O'Neal,
who was at the jail giving
a ride to a friend.
O'Neal was arrested in
September with Ryan
O'Neal and charged with
felony methampheta-
mine possession. He was
on probation for a previ-
ous drug conviction.

Choreographer
faces charges
LOS ANGELES - Los
Angeles police have ar-
rested a choreographer
featured on the FOX tele-
vision show "So You
Think You Can Dance" on
suspicion of sexually as-
saulting four of his dance
students.
Officer Jason Lee says
Alex Da Silva was taken
into custody Saturday and
held on $3.8 million bail.
Detectives say the al-
leged assaults occurred
between May 2003 and
March 28. The female ac-
cusers told police Da
Silva lured them to his
homes in North Holly-
wood and Van Nuys, used
a ruse to get them into his
bedroom and raped them.
It's not immediately

'Furious' sets pace at box office


Sequel accelerates

to $72.5M opening

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES - "Fast & Furious"
left the competition in the dust with a
$72.5 million opening weekend, the
best so far this year.
That topped last weekend's $59.3
million debut for DreamWorks Ani-
mation's "Monsters vs. Aliens," which
slipped to second place .with $33.5
million, raising its 10-day total to
$105.7 million, according to studio es-
timates Sunday.
Universal's "Fast & Furious" also
raced to a record for April debuts,
easily passing the previous best of
$42.2 million set in 2003 by "Anger
Management."
It was a blockbuster opening more
customary to summer. But Hollywood
has been extending its busy season
more and more by placing summer-
style flicks earlier in the year.
"It's summer time in April," said
Paul Dergarabedian, president of box
office tracker Media By Numbers.
"We've seen the summer season
stretch from what used to be Memo-
rial Day through Labor Day, then the
first of May through Labor Day Now
maybe with 'Fast & Furious,' it's going
to be early April as the beginning of
summer."


TICKET SALES
1. "Fast & Furious," $72.5 million.
2. "Monsters vs. Aliens,"
$33.5 million.
3. "The Haunting in Connecticut,"
$9.6 million.
4. "Knowing," $8.1 million.
5. "I Love You, Man," $7.9 million.
6. "Adventureland," $6 million.
7. "Duplicity," $4.3 million.
8. "Race to Witch Mountain,"
$3.4 million.
9. "12 Rounds," $2.3 million.
10. "Sunshine Cleaning,"
$1.9 million.

The weekend's other new wide re-
lease, Miramax's 1980s nostalgia com-
edy "Adventureland," debuted at No.
6 with $6 million. The movie stars
Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart
as summer workers at a second-rate
theme park in the late '80s.
The fourth installment of the "Fast
and the Furious" street-racing fran-
chise brings back the four stars of the
2001 original - Vin Diesel, Paul
Walker, Michelle Rodriguez and Jor-
dana Brewster. The new movie has
Diesel's fugitive driver and Walker's
undercover cop reteaming for more
illegal races as they take on a mur-
derous drug lord.
The reunion paid off for distributor


Universal, which also pulled in $30.1
million in 32 other countries where
"Fast & Furious" was playing.
The original was a surprise hit, but
the franchise was slowly running out
of gas after the sequel "2 Fast 2 Furi-
ous," which starred Walker. Part
three, "The Fast and the Furious:
Tokyo Drift," had a new cast and took
in a solid but unremarkable $62.5 mil-
lion over its entire run.
But "Tokyo Drift" ended with a
cameo by Diesel, sparking interest in
reviving the series with the "Fast &
Furious" reunion.
"The marketing campaign let
everyone know it's not what you've
seen before. It's the original cast,'
said Nikki Rocco, head of distribution
for Universal. "For the audience, the
first main reason to see the movie was
the action, then the car racing, then
Vin Diesel."
"Fast & Furious" paced Hollywood
to another huge weekend, with over-
all revenues at $160 million, up '68
percent from the same period last
year.
For the year, domestic revenues are
running at a record pace of $2.57 bil-
lion, up 14.5 percent from 2008's, ac-
cording to Media By Numbers.
Factoring in 2009's higher ticket
prices, movie attendance is running
12.8 percent ahead of last year's.
"The title of this movie perfectly
describes the box office year of 2009.
Fast and furious," Dergarabedian
said.

HISTORY

Today is Monday, April 6,
the 96th day of 2009. There
are 269 days left in the year.
Today's Highlight in His-
tory:
One hundred years ago, on
April 6,1909, American ex-
plorers Robert E. Peary and
Matthew A. Henson and four
Inuits became the first men to
reach the North Pole.
On this date:
In 1917, Cbngress ap-
proved a declaration of war
against Germany.
In 1954, after being criti-
cized by newsman Edward R.
Murrow on CBS' "See It Now,"
Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy, R-
Wis., was given the opportu-
nity to reply with a filmed
response in which he charged
that Murrow had in the past
"engaged in propaganda for
Communist causes."
In 1963, the United States
signed an agreement to sell
the Polaris missile system to
Britain.
In 1965, the United States
launched the Intelsat I, also
known as the "Early Bird"
communications satellite, into
orbit.
In 1983, rock 'roll' fans re-
acted with outrage and dis-
may to a published report in
The Washington Post that In-
terior Secretary James Watt
had decided to exclude
groups like the Beach Boys
from Washington's 4th of July
celebration - a stand he later
reversed.
Ten years ago: Yugoslav
President Slobodan Milosevic
declared a unilateral cease-
fire in his campaign to crush
rebels in Kosovo; Westem
leaders called the move a
sham and pledged to press
ahead with airstrikes.
Five years ago: Jordan's
military court convicted eight
Muslim militants and sen-
tenced them to death for the
2002 killing of U.S. aid official
Laurence Foley in a terror
conspiracy linked to al-Qaida.
One year ago: President
George W. Bush and Russian
President Vladimir Putin,
meeting at the Black Sea re-
sort of Sochi, failed to over-
come sharp differences over
a U.S. missile defense sys-
tem as they closed their
seven-year relationship.
Today's Birthdays: Coun-
try singer Merle Haggard is
72. Actor Billy Dee Williams is
72. Actor Roy Thinnes is 71.
Actor John Ratzenberger is


62. Author Vince Flynn is 43.
Actor Paul Rudd is 40. Actor
Zach Braff is 34.
Thought for Today: 'To be
really cosmopolitan, a man
must be at home even in his
own country." - Thomas
Wentworth Higginson, Ameri-
can clergyman-author (1823-
1911).
