Consent sought for Maidhof job


Commissioners will meet Tuesday


MIKE WRIGHT

Chronicle
Citrus County Commission-
ers are divided on whether to
approve a new job that is pro-
posed on Tuesday's board
agenda, but they all agree on


one thing:
They're not sure what it is.
That's because interim ad-
ministrator Eber Brown hadn't
completed the job description
for "organizational planning
director" by Friday afternoon.
County spokesman Jiin Hunter
said Brown hoped to have the


job description finished by
Monday, though it might not be
ready until Tuesday's board
meeting.
"I don't have an opinion one
way or another," Commis-
sioner Gary Bartell said. "I
don't know what this position
is going to do. I've got a lot of
questions, let's put it that way."
County officials said last
week that Development Serv-


ices Director Gary Maidhof is
the likely prospect to fill the
position. Tuesday's agenda
item is to establish the position
only; the person hired for it is
Brown's call.
Maidhof earns $98,000 annu-
ally as development director.
The pay range of the new posi-
tion is $57,719 to $82,080,
Hunter said.

Every morning at Luigi's
Restaurant in Homosassa, Larry
Shearin and the rest of the unof-
ficial "breakfast club" solved the
world's problems.
"Larry would give you his opin-
ion whether you wanted it or not
- and his'opinion was always
right, at least in his mind," said
Henry Mitchell.
His opinion reached farther
than just Homosassa. He kept in
constant contact with elected
representatives and government
officials, from local politicians to
the White House.
He just knew how things
should be, and that was that
Larry Shearin died April 8. He
was 83.
On most mornings, Larry and
his wife, Jan, started the day at
Luigi's, the men facing the plate
glass window so they could rate
the women walking by, one to 10.
The women of the breakfast
club would put on lipstick and
plant kisses on Larry's forehead,
which he loved - and wouldn't
wipe off, much to his wife's cha-
grin.
But that was Larry
For breakfast he'd order his
usual: one egg over easy, bacon
("very crisp") and dark toast.
Sugar and half and half in his cof-
fee - and it had to be half and
half.
"You never saw anyone cut up
an egg like Larry did," Mitchell
said. "He was like a Japanese
chef- chop, chop, chop - cutting
it in tiny pieces. One day I brought
him in a potato masher and said,
'Here, this will be better"'

Two deputies fatally shot


Suspect later killed by police , "'


CRESTVIEW - Two
north Florida sheriff's
deputies were shot and
killed Saturday by a suspect
who was later fatally shot by
deputies, authorities said.
The shooting occurred
around 1 p.m. Saturday when
the two Okaloosa County
deputies went to Shoal River
Sporting Clays and Shooting
Center in response to a call,
said Michele Nicholson, a
sheriff's spokeswoman.
Authorities said the sus-
pect shot both deputies and
took off toward neighboring
Walton County, where he
was shot and killed by sher-
iff's deputies.
A man who answered the
telephone at the shooting
center near Crestview said
he had no comment on the
shooting.


Deputies Burt Lopez and
Deputy Warren "Skip" York
were pronounced dead
after being airlifted to Sa-
cred Heart Hospital in Pen-
sacola, about 45 miles away,
the sheriff's office said.
A news release from the
sheriff's office identified their
killer as Joshua Cartwright,
28, of Fort Walton Beach.
Mark Illich was near the
DeFuniak Springs intersec-
tion where deputies shot
and killed Cartwright and
witnessed the shooting.
"It must have been like 30
or 40 shots," Illich told The
Northwest Florida Daily
News.
Illich said he saw one of-
ficer putting down spikes at
the intersection and knew
"something's about to hap-
pen."

Polo team vet grief-stricken after deaths


'lam not living,'

veterinarian says

Associated Press

WELLINGTON - When Argentine
veterinarian Felix Crespo injected 21
elite polo horses with a vitamin sup-
plement shortly before a championship
match in Florida, he never imagined
they would all be dead the next day.
A week later, with the horses felled
by a mysterious poison, the grief in Cre-
spo's eyes speaks volumes. Deep pain
lurks beneath the brim of his ball cap.
"I am not living," Crespo told The
Associated Press on Saturday in his
first interview since the horses died
last Sunday "I wouldn't wish this on
my worst enemy."
Crespo stroked his mustache, his
head slightly hung. His eyes drooped
from a lack of sleep. He said he
spends more time with the horses
than his family
"They are part of our family," said
Crespo, a father of four.
At the Lechuza Caracas polo team's
sprawling 60-acre ranch in South
Florida's polo capital about 15 miles
from the Atlantic Coast, Crespo was
somber and soft-spoken. He sat with
team manager Esteban Scott on a brown
leather couch in a room decorated with
horse pictures, just feet from the stables.
Both men are still in shock
"For me, it's really a tragedy," said
Crespo, who has spent his life around
horses and breeds them in his home
country "It's going to be very tough to
recover... I don't know if I am going to
be back to the same person."
A Florida pharmacy that prepared
the supplement for the team on order
from their local veterinarian said
Thursday the strength of an ingredi-
ent was incorrect. The pharmacy
would not say what the ingredient was
or if the mix-up was in the prescrip-
tion that came from the veterinarian.
Investigations into the horses' deaths
continue, but an exact cause has not
been pinpointed. Necropsies of the bod-
ies discovered bleeding in their lungs.
Crespo, 53, has a license to practice in
Argentina, but not in the U.S., so he serves
as the team's training supervisor here.
He can administer shots, but can't
prescribe medication. The team
turned to a Florida veterinarian it
has used for nine years to place the

The prized ponies from the Venezue-
lan-owned team began collapsing last
Sunday as they were unloaded from
trailers at the International Polo Club
Palm Beach, with some dying at the
scene and others hours later
They were set to compete in the
sport's U.S. Open tournament and
were seen as top contenders. Twelve
of the dead horses belonged to promi-
nent Venezuelan banker Victor Var-
gas, the team's owner. The rest were
owned by players.
The match day began like any other
- grooming, feeding, exercise, rest.
The 21 most elite of the 38 horses that
were headed to the field were given the
supplement that was supposed to be a
mixture of vitamin B, potassium, mag-
nesium and selenium to help the fa-
tigued animals recover after the match.
But something went wrong. Two of
the horses - 7-year-old Turca and 6-
year-old Pelusa - fell ill with shakes,
fever and sweats, Crespo said.
They were kept behind at the sta-

CAPE CANAVERAL - The '
U.S. Coast Guard rescued four
boaters found sitting atop a
capsized vessel just off Port
Canaveral.
Petty Officer Ken Christian
said the Coast Guard dis-
patched two boats to search for
the stranded party on Saturday.
Aboutan hour later, rescue
boats found the people, along with
someone who was in another
boat trying to help. The boaters
were sitting atop their overturned
24-foot recreational boat.
The Coast Guard escorted
the boaters, who had been fish-
ing, back to shore. They did not
want their names released.
Man arrested for
impersonating officer
GAINESVILLE - Authorities
said they arrested a man ac-
cused of impersonating an offi-
cer in north Florida.
The Alachua County Sheriffs
Office said 58-year-old Dennis
Brady, who was a traffic guide
at a school, was arrested Fri-
day on charges of impersonat-
ing an officer and carrying a
prohibitive weapon. Ajail official
said he has been released on a
$100,000 bond.
Authorities said Brady had a
can of pepper spray that is only
supposed to be available to offi-
cers. Officials said Brady also
had a white Crown Victoria with a
cage for the back seat, a German
shepherd and a spotlight like
those on a real police vehicle.
The complaint originated
from a confrontation with a par-
ent involving parking.

states 14-year-veteran Gerald
Zito, who was responsible for
firearms training with the depart-
ment, was alone in a training
room March 11 when he shot
himself in the lower abdomen

was considering buying the
firearm for his personal use.

termined that Zito violated de-

bles, while the 36 others were sent to
the polo field.
"They were showing signs of some
kind of allergic reaction that we did-
n't know what it was," said Scott, the
team manager.
The horses arrived at the field and
Scott, 39, got a frantic call. Something
was wrong.
"What I find is that when they opened
the gate of the trailer, one more mare
had collapsed and died on the trip," he
said. "Within a few minutes, three more
horses started showing signs of dizzi-
ness, sweating and heavy breathing."
The sick horses were sent back to
the barn. But it didn't stop there.
The horses began dropping beside
the field.
People were "crying, hugging
them," Scott said. "We didn't know
what was wrong."
Then the unimaginable happened.
"The horses started passing away
one by one," Scott said.
By the next day, all 21 horses that
got the shots were dead.
The team, a tight-knit group of
about 50 people that work together 11
months a year, is now mourning.
"You're very connected with the
horses. You learn to care about them
and love them," Scott said. "This is a
day that is going to be in our minds for
the rest of our lives."
The team heads to England in a
month, where they stable about 50
horses, for another match.
"Those horses will never be re-
placed," Scott said. "But we're going to
get over this ... We are a tough team."

Closing arguments in terror trial end


Associated Press

MIAMI - Closing arguments
ended Friday in the third trial for six
South Florida men facing terrorism
charges.
A 12-member jury heard 15 hours
worth of closing arguments from
prosecution and defense attorneys
over two days. The jury is scheduled
to begin deliberations Monday.
Prosecutors said the Haitian-born
men known as the Liberty City Six
pledged allegiance to al-Qaida and
Osama bin Laden and planned to
blow up Chicago's Sears Tower, New
York City's Empire State Building,
Miami's U.S. courthouses and FBI
offices and courthouses in a mission
to destroy the United States.
But defense attorneys said they
were just "dirt poor" men who pre-
tended to be terrorists or supporters
to scam $50,000 from two men they
thought were working for bin Laden.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard
Gregorie played on TV screens for
the jurors the wiretapped pictures
and words in which alleged ring-
leader Narseal Baptiste declared he
wanted to blow up buildings, shoot
survivors, cause chaos and destroy
the United States.


"Look at these pictures, members
of the jury," he said in the govern-
ment's final argument. "The confi-
dential informant (who wore a body
wire) has just left the building. The
guard has closed the door and the
others are standing at attention like
soldiers. Do you see anyone with
their lips moving asking Baptiste
'What's this about, what are you
doing?"'
Or is the case as Albert Levin, de-
fense lawyer for Patrick Abram said,
"a manufactured crime, written,
produced, directed and choreo-
graphed by the FBI."
His voice rising almost to a shout,
Levin told the jurors, "Your mission
is to do justice to these men. Be fair
... and send all these brothers
home."
As the jurors exited, Baptiste's
lawyer, an angry Ana Jones, asked
Judge Lenard to declare a mistrial.
The judge denied it.
She castigated Gregorie, saying
comments he made were "nothing
short of outrageous."
She said the defendants constitu-
tional rights were violated because
the FBI continued to tape the meet-
ing after the confidential informant,
Elie Assad, had left the group's


building known as the Embassy. It is
located in Miami's Liberty City
neighborhood.
She accused Gregory and the gov-
ernment of having and not turned
over to the defense "exculpatory
tapes" which would prove that the
defendants retracted their threats to
blow up buildings and talked only of
scamming $50,000. Gregorie said
there are no such tapes.
Judge Lenard, in denying Jone's
motion, pointing out that she and a
magistrate had both held hearings
in which prosecutors swore there
were no exculpatory tapes.
Two previous juries after weeks of
deliberation were unable to agree
which side had proved its case and
Judge Lenard declared mistrials.
However the second jury acquitted
one man of what originally was the
"Liberty City Seven," all of whom
were arrested June 22, 2006.
The third trial began in January
with three weeks spent selecting a
12-member jury and five alternates
to hear the four-count case charging
the six with conspiracy to commit
terrorism and offering to provide
"material support" to terrorists. The
trial began Feb. 17 with opening
statements.

NEW ORLEANS - Big
Sam's Funky Nation, one of
New Orleans' most ener-
getic brass bands, had a
crowd of thousands on its
feet at the New Orleans
Jazz and Heritage Festival
on Saturday, the second day
of the outdoor music fest.
Fans danced and clapped
to the music under a sunny
sky. On another stage, The
Imagination Movers, a chil-
dren's band with a televi-
sion show on the Disney
Channel by the same name,
had parents and their little
ones dancing.
"We love the Movers,"
said New Orleans resident
Dan Pellerito, 35, as he
bobbed and clapped with
his kids, 4-year-old Sophia
and 2-year-old Henry.
In all, the festival fea-
tures hundreds of acts on
12 stages this weekend and
next. The festival will con-
tinue today and pick up
again on Thursday. Among
this year's headline acts
are Bon Jovi, Neil Young,
Kings of Leon and Sugar-
land.
Neo-soul artist Erykah
Badu was scheduled as one
of Saturday's closing acts.
Badu, in a phone inter-
view before the start of the
festival, said she was
thrilled to be coming to Jazz
Fest, an event she said she
has been a fan of for years.
She performed at Jazz Fest
once, before Hurricane Ka-
trina struck in 2005.
"I'm super excited," she
said.


Other headline acts Sat-
urday include guitarist
James Taylor, the rockgroup
Wilco, jazz clarinetist Pete
Fountain and trumpeter
and composer Wynton
Marsalis, who will perform
with The Jazz at Lincoln
Center, the New York-based
orchestra he directs.
Marsalis performed with the
orchestra on Friday as well.
Earlier Saturday, festival
organizers held a news con-
ference to thank Jazz Fest
sponsors, the biggest ofwhich
is Shell Oil Co. Shell stepped
in to help the festival finan-
cially after Katrina flooded
80 percent ofthe city With the
recent economic downturn,
the festival lost three other
sponsors, but Shell stayed.
"We're very fortunate for
that," said Jazz Fest pro-
ducer Quint Davis.
At the news conference
was Jazz Fest founder
George Wein, who first
started the event in 1970
and hired Davis.
With this year marking
the 40th anniversary of the
festival, Wein told reporters -
he was overwhelmed to see
"a piece of my life's x o.rk"
still alive and well aftetaia
these years.
"I get very emotional
about it," he said.
Wein is scheduled to per-
form on piano with his band,
the Newport All-Stars, next
weekend. Other acts slated
for next weekend include the
rock group Bon Jovi, country
singer Emmylou Harris, the
country group Sugarland
and the fest's closing day act,
The Neville Brothers.

U1I UUOCIOVIUiLU



pic of Obama


Associated Press


Here's the part that's
NOT in debate about the
May cover of Washington-
ian magazine: Barack
Obama looks pretty darned
good in a swimsuit - espe-
cially for a president.
What IS being debated
are issues of propriety and
ethics. Was it disrespectful
to display the presidential
pecs - alongside a head-
line calling the chief exec-
utive "hot?" And, in a
separate journalistic flap,
was it wrong
to alter the
color of his
swimsuit
from black
(or dark
navy) to a
bright red?
Before you `
ask the obvi- u
ous - why
would they
WANT to
change the
color? -
let's first re-
call the This Washing
photo, one of shows Presi
those pa- Obama shirtle
those pa-
parazzi shots that surfaced
on the Web in December
during Obama's preinau-
gural trip to Hawaii. The
president-elect wore dark
sunglasses as he strolled in
his swimsuit
At the time, some
thought the photos from
the Bauer-Griffin agency
unseemly - and wondered
how the photographer
managed to get them. But
there was also plenty of
praise for, well, the state of
the presidential bod. This
wasn't exactly the rotund
William Howard Taft.
On Thursday, when news
spread that the photo
graced Washingtonian, a
monthly geared to affluent
residents of the capital, the
chatter bubbled anew.
"I don't care to see my
President in his swim trunks,
any more than I would care
to see my Senators or my
doctor," wrote one reader,
Amy, on the magazine's Web
site. "I think it's inappropri-
ate, and disrespectful to
President Obama," wrote an-
other, Kathleen.
"I think the photo is
great," wrote another, Sum-
mer, from Germany "More-
over it has to be mentioned
that it looks sexy!"
The magazine's pub-
lisher said the whole thing
was meant as a compli-
ment - and to capture a


feeling that, she said, is
sweeping Washington.
"Washington's in a golden
age," Catherine Merrill
Williams said in a tele-
phone interview. "We
thought this cover captured
the energy this president
has brought to the city."
And as for that altered
swimsuit color? "We
changed it so it would show
up against our dark back-.
ground," Williams said.
"Also, we were trying to
convey the concept of love,
and red is the color of love.
And it's hot!"
That didn't
hold water,
hot or cold,
with some
commenta-
tors and aca-
demics, who
felt the maga-
zine should
have adhered
to a central
tenet of pho-
tojournalism:
You don't
Assocaited Press alter photos:

dent Barack "There
ess. needsto berin-
tegrity to a photo," said Kath-
leen Hall Jamieson, director
of the Annenberg Public Pol-
icy Center atthe University of
Pennsylvania. "Otherwise,
what are your boundaries?
Where do you stop?"

And unlike Ronald Rea-

Bill Clinton, who often

BEIRUT' - Mohammed
Saleh is convinced: If he
builds it, Lebanese expatri-
ates will come.
The Beirut-based devel-
oper envisions a 3.3-square-
kilometer, artificial island
shaped like a cedar tree as a
major attraction off
Lebanon's coast
The massive chunk of
dredged seabed or trans-
ported earth - converted
into an $8 billion paradise
with luxury villas, apart-
ments, shops, restaurants,
white-sand beaches, parks,
schools and hospitals -
would nurture national pride,
says Saleh, chairman ofNoor
International Holding.
It's the kind of splashy
megaproject that gave Arab
boomtown Dubai its out-
sized profile but left it
drowning in debt. And in
Lebanon, a tiny country-
known more for war than
tourism, critics see the proj-
ect as folly
But Saleh says Cedar Is-
land is the kind of self-fi-
nanced gamble the nation
needs to lure back wealthy
Lebanese who moved
abroad as they grew weary
of conflict.
"I am not worried about
the global crisis, because my
main target is Lebanese ex-
patriates who have nostalgia
for their country and would
like to invest in it," said
Saleh. "Unlike foreign in-
vestors, these people are
used to Lebanon's system, its
ups and downs."

projects boast outsized

LARRY
Continued from Page Al

Born with a fishing rod in
one hand, a hunting rifle in
the other and a gift for sales,
Larry grew up in Murfrees-
boro, Tenn.
The famous story in his
family has Larry as a little
boy emptying out his toy box,
filling it with vegetables from
the family garden and going
door to door selling them.
He spent his career as a
manufacturer's representa-
tive and owner of S&H Sales
Company, Inc., in Orlando.
"Daddy seemed to always
enjoy his work and gave it
110 percent," said daughter
Malynda Keefner. "He trav-
eled almost all of my child-
hood and was only home on
weekends, which meant
quality time was a pre-
mium."
He still found time to hunt
and fish, including hunting
quail in Sugarmill Woods
with his son before the area
became a residential devel-
opment
"Larry found Homosassa
while on a fishing trip here
with one of his customers,"
said Mrs. Shearin. "When he
came home he said, 'This
place is fantastic!' After that,
we bought property in Old
Homosassa and built a vaca-
tion home."
The couple met in
Murfreesboro, having grown
up together. Mrs. Shearin
called her husband a "brass
band" and she was the back-
ground music.
"He was a go-getter," she
said.
When they moved full-
time to Homosassa in 1992
after Larry retired, he con-
tinued "go-getting," this time
as a volunteer at the Ho-
mosassa Springs Wildlife
State Park
"He called them and said
he wanted to drive the
boats," Mrs. Shearin said.
"He had his own spiel for
wheh he drove down the
Pepper Creek He used to say
that this state (Florida) has
been so good to us and we
need to give back to it, so we
both started volunteering."
For 14 years, Larry was at
the park as often as he could
be. His two biggest contribu-
tions, aside from all the vol-
unteer hours and his service
as two-time past president of
the Friends of Homosassa
Springs Wildlife Park, were
getting the artist Wyland to
come and paint a mural on

lunch out of the backs of
their cars, and he didn't think
that was right," Mrs. Shearin

fought for that for years."
Wherever he went, Larry
carried passes to the park to

He was shameless about

on vacation in Acapulco.
He loved Homosassa.
"The main thing that sticks
in my mind about my dad
was his integrity and love for
our country," Malynda

handshake was as binding as

said. "The over-pouring of

Professor sought in slaying


Three killed two injured

nationwide manhunt underway


Associated Press
ATHENS, Ga. - Authori-
ties were on a nationwide
manhunt for a University of
Georgia professor in the
shooting deaths of three
people, including his ex-
wife, Saturday at a commu-
nity theater near campus.
Athens-Clarke County Po-
lice Capt Clarence Hole-
man said authorities were
searching for a suspect, 57-
year-old George Zinkhan,
who has been a marketing


professor at the university
in Athens since the 1990s,
and lived about seven miles
from campus.
Killed were Zinkhan's ex-
wife, Marie Bruce, 47, Tom
Tanner, 40, and Ben Teague,
63, Holeman said. Both men
were involved with the the-
ater group in Athens, about
70 miles east of Atlanta.
The shooting happened
outside the Athens Commu-
nity Theater during a mid-
day gathering of Town &
Gown Players Inc., a local


theater group. Holeman
said the shooter left his two
young children in the car
when he opened fire on the
group. A neighbor of
Zinkhan's in nearby Bogart
said the professor later
dropped off the children
with him next door and left
after saying there was an
emergency The children.
were with police.

Coroner Sonny Wilson said
the three victims were shot
multiple times. Two other
people were injured by

Investigators searched
Zinkhan's house in a suburb

Mortar rounds


miss Somalian


parliament, hit


nearby houses
Associated Press

MOGADISHU, Somalia - Mortars fired
toward Somalia's parliament missed the
building but hit a police unit inside the
compound as well as a residential neigh-
borhood, killing at least seven people, ac-
cording to witnesses and officials.
Parliament was in session at the time of
the attack, though the prime minister and
speaker had just left, Deputy Parliament
Speaker Osman Ilmi Boqore said.
"The mortars started to land near the
parliament building when the session
ended and the MPs had just passed a na-
tional budget," Boqore said. No one has yet
claimed responsibility for the attack.
The mortars that exploded at the police
unit killed one officer, Mogadishu Police
Commander Col. Yusuf Dumaal said.
Most of the mortars landed on a Shibis
District neighborhood north of the capital
around noqn, Mogadishu,Police C'h et'Abd i
Hassan Awale said.
Witnesses in the neighborhood counted
at least six dead. Resident Abdirahman
Hassan described how "mortars started to
rain down on our village." The explosions
flattened a home in another part of the
neighborhood, killing an 11-year-old boy in-
side, relative Abdirahman Shikeh Isse said.
Isse and Hassan counted 17 injured,
while Dumaal said at least four police offi-
cers had also been injured, bringing the
number of injured to at least 21.
Somalia, an arid country on the Horn of
Africa, has not had an effective central gov-
ernment in nearly 20 years since warlords de-
posed dictator Mohamed Siad Barre in 1991.
Until January, the parliament had been
based in the southwest town of Baidoa
while Islamic insurgents controlled most of
Mogadishu. Lawmakers were forced to re-
turn to the capital after Baidoa was cap-
tured on Jan. 26 by Al-Shabab, a hardline
Islamic group which is on Washington's list
of terror organizations.


Swine flu fears grip Mexico


Associated Press
MEXICO CITY -As Mexico
struggled against the odds Sat-
urday to contain a strange new
flu that has killed 68 and per-
haps sickened more than 1,000,
it was becoming clearer that
the government hasn't moved
quickly enough to head off

zation said has the potential to
Become a global epidemic.
The World Health Organiza-
tion said the outbreak has be-
come a "public health
emergency of international
concern" and asked countries
around the world to step up re-
porting and surveillance of the
disease and implement a coor-
dinated response to contain it.
But Mexicans were dying for
weeks at least before U.S. sci-
entists identified the strain - a
combination of swine, bird and
human influenza that people
may have no natural immunity

Five police die in attack on Afghan governor's compound


Associated Press

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan
- Three Taliban suicide
bombers evaded tight secu-
rity to attack a governor's
compound in southern
Afghanistan, killing at least
five police officers Saturday,
authorities said.
The multi-pronged as-
sault was the latest bold at-
tack in Kandahar, the
country's largest southern


city and the Taliban's spiri-
tual birthplace.
The three bombers were
able to get past a first secu-
rity checkpoint in the Kan-
dahar governor's compound,
and one bomber set off his
explosives at a second
checkpoint, said Ahmad
Wali Karzai, the president's
brother and the head of the
provincial council.
The two other bombers
moved deeper into the com-


pound before police fired on
them and their explosives
detonated, Karzai said.
At least five police died in
the attack and nine people
were wounded, hospital of-
ficials said.
The Kandahar governor
was not harmed, but offi-
cials were searching for a
possible fourth suicide
bomber, Karzai said.
A Taliban spokesman,
Qari Yousef Ahmadi,


claimed responsibility later
Saturday for the attack
Kandahar province is the
spiritual birthplace of the
Taliban, the hard-line Is-
lamic militiamen who ruled
Afghanistan from 1996 to
2001 and are now waging an
insurgency against President
Hamid Karzai's government
Earlierthis month, four Tal-
iban suicide bombers dis-
guised in army uniforms
detonated a car bomb and


stormed a government office
in Kandahar, killing 13 people.
Last summer, Taliban
fighters attacked Kandahar's
prison in a multi-pronged as-
sault that included a suicide
truck bomb, a suicide
bomber on foot and gunmen
freeing the prisoners. About
870 prisoners escaped, in-
cluding roughly 400 jailed in-
surgents.
Taliban fighters have made
a bloody comeback in the last


three years after what ap-
peared to be an initial defeat
following the 2001 U.S.-led in-
vasion. President Barack
Obama has ordered 21,000
more troops to Afghanistan
this year to bolster the record
38,000 American forces al-
ready in the country.
Analysts say the Taliban are
carrying out more sophisti-
cated attacks because oftheir
alliance and training with al-
Qaida and Pakistani militants.


North Korea says it has
restarted nuclear facilities
SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea said
Saturday it has begun harvesting plutonium from
spent fuel rods at its main nuclear plant to build
up its atomic arsenal.
Saturday's announcement, which could not be
independently verified, came just hours after the
U.N. imposed new sanctions on three North Ko-
rean companies in response to the country's
controversial April 5 rocket launch.
North Korea retaliated by quitting the disarma-
ment talks and vowing to restart its atomic facili-
ties. Last week, Pyongyang expelled international
nuclear monitors from the main nuclear site at
Yongbyon, north of the capital. With eight of 11
steps toward disablement complete at Yongbyon,
outside experts have said it could take months
for the North to get the plant fully restarted.
Kim Yong-hyun, a professor at Seoul's Dongguk
University, called the newest move a bluff designed
to pressure Washington into holding direct talks
with Pyongyang outside of the six-party process.

Two swine flu cases in Kansas; Kalamazoo College receives
U.S. total 11; eight likely in NY $2M from anonymous donor


NEW YORK- At least two cases of the
human swine influenza have been confirmed in
Kansas, bringing the U.S. total to 11. At least
eight more are suspected in students at a New
York City high school, but health officials said
they don't know whether they have the same
virus that has killed scores of people in Mexico.
A strain of the flu has killed as many as 68
people and sickened more than 1,000 across
Mexico. The World Health Organization chief
said the strain has "pandemic potential" and it
may be too late to contain a sudden outbreak.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention in Atlanta said besides the two con-
firmed cases in Kansas, there are nine in Califor-
nia and Texas.
Samples from New York have been sent to the
CDC for more testing. Results are expected today.


KALAMAZOO, Mich. - Kalamazoo College
said its windfall from a mystery donor was $2 mil-
lion - twice the amount it previously disclosed.
The private school in Michigan announced
earlier this month that it received a $1 million gift
for student aid from a donor who wished to re-
main anonymous. This week, it disclosed a sec-
ond check.
School President Eileen B. Wilson-Oyelaran said
the second check was designated for any purpose,
and the school planned to delay announcing it until
it determined how to use the money.
Recent media coverage of other donations led
to the change.
At least a dozen schools received donations in
a similar fashion. The recipient colleges seem to
have almost nothing in common except this: So
far, all are led by women.


U.S. Navy: Pirates seize
German ship near Somalia
NAIROBI, Kenya - Pirates have seized a
German-owned ship in the pirate-infested waters
between Somalia and Yemen, a U.S. Navy
spokesman said Saturday.
Pirates captured the Maltese-flagged MV Pa-
triot early on Saturday in the Gulf of Aden about
150 nautical miles southeast of the coastal
Yemeni city of Muqalla, said U.S. Navy 5th Fleet
spokesman Lt. Nathan Christensen.
An official from the German Foreign Ministry
could not immediately confirm the ship's capture
on Saturday.
Andrew Mwangura of the Mombasa, Kenya-
based East African Seafarers' Assistance Pro-
gram, a group that monitors pirate activity off the
African coast, said the ship has.17 crew mem-
bers but could not name their nationalities. He
said the large cargo vessel is designed to carry
grain, but said he did not know what cargo it
contained when it was captured.

with a souvenir to savor, sip by sip, as
she sported a bottle of Maker's Mark
bourbon topped with her own personal

After a quick lesson, the woman from
Reading, Pa., grabbed the bottle and
dunked the top in a tub of wax, swirled
the bottle, then pulled it out. She then
signed and dated her bottle.
"It's .pretty cool," Busch said after
completing her visit to the bucolic dis-
tillery nestled in the hills of central Ken-
tucky, where whiskey-making has been
a tradition for more than two centuries.
Kentuckians like to brag about their

ROSEVILLE, Calif. -Choo
choo, tweet tweet!
That's the sound of a his-
toric train trip being tracked on
Twitter.
Steam Locomotive No. 844,
which was Union Pacific Rail-
road's last steam locomotive,
is on a 32-day four-state tour
from Roseville, Calif., to
Ogden, Utah. Dispatches
about the joumey are being
posted to Twitter.
The tour started April 11
and continues through May
12, when it arrives in Utah to
help mark the 140th anniver-
sary of the driving of the
Golden Spike. The Golden
Spike was driven on May 10,
1869, in Utah to connect the
Union Pacific and Central Pa-
cific lines in the nation's first
transcontinental railroad.
Visitors to www.up.com can
access route maps and track
the historic steam engine's lo-
cation by GPS. The GPS from
the train will also "tweet" the
location of the locomotive on
Twitter. Check out the updates
at twitter.com/UP-Steam or
click on the map to see where
the train is.
No. 844 was delivered to


Union Pacific in 1944. A high-
speed passenger engine, it
pulled widely known trains like
the Overland Limited, Los An-
geles Limited, Portland Rose
and Challenger.
When diesels took over all
of the passenger train duties,
No. 844 was placed into
freight service in Nebraska be-
tween 1957 and 1959. It was
saved from being scrapped in
1960 and is now used for spe-
cial events and excursion
runs.

TRAIL
Continued from Page A9
bon makers featured on the
decades-old Bourbon Trail
are Buffalo Trace at Frank-
fort, Wild Turkey and Four
Roses near Lawrenceburg,
Heaven Hill and Tom Moore
at Bardstown, Jim Beam at
Clermont and Woodford Re-
serve near Versailles. Each
has its own distinctive fea-
tures.
At Heaven Hill's Bourbon
Heritage Center, visitors sip
bourbon in an eye-catching
barrel-shaped tasting room.
Four Roses Distillery fea-
tures Spanish Mission-style
architecture. Wild Turkey
sits on a hillcrest overlook-
ing the Kentucky River At
Jim Beam, visitors trace the
rise and influence of the
"First Family of Bourbon."
Buffalo Trace is on a site
settled by surveyors where
the Kentucky River inter-
sected a buffalo trail. Tom
Moore offers an interesting
behind-the-scenes tour
No single road connects
the distilleries, spread out
across several counties in
central Kentucky.
Spring is a popular time
for tours, with visitors
treated to Kentucky land-
scapes bursting in color
from budding trees and
flowers. Bourbon tours mix
well with another signature
Kentucky industry for a day
of bluegrass bliss. Some
people combine bourbon
tours with visits to area
thoroughbred farms or
spend an afternoon at horse
races. Keeneland race track
at Lexington has live racing
for most of April, followed
by the spring meet at
Churchill Downs in
Louisville, home of the Ken-
tucky Derby.
Bourbon and horses ma-
ture near one another at the
Woodford Reserve Distill-
ery, nestled in Kentucky's
Bluegi'ass region. Visitors
heading to the distillery on
country back roads drive
past picturesque horse
farms bounded by miles of
black wood fence snaking
along the countryside.
The distillery is a collec-
tion of stone buildings on a
site where bourbon has
been made since 1812.
The visitor center fea-


tures an inviting front porch
with a row of rocking chairs.
Inside, there's memorabilia
and a gift shop featuring re-
gionally produced foods,
gifts, apparel and stocks of
Woodford Reserve. A popu-
lar local restaurant offers
catered lunches that can be
eaten on the back porch.
The tour takes about an
hour and gives visitors an
inside look at bourbon mak-
ing.
They peer into cypress
fermentation tanks in which
cooked grains and water -
forming a bubbling, brown-
ish mash resembling oat-
meal - are combined with
yeast, which transforms
sugar into alcohol.
In a rackhouse teaming
with barrels from top to bot-
tom, tour guide Dave Saly-
ers described how aging
whiskey is sampled to de-
termine if it has reached
maturity.
Tasters drill into the bot-
tom of the barrel to extract
whiskey. They sniff the
bourbon - called "nosing"
- and check its color. They
put a small amount in their
mouths, swish it around and
spit it out.
Why spit rather than swal-
low? Salyers said they take
multiple samples each day
"I wouldn't be much good
after about two or three
samples," he said.
The return to the visitor
center means it's sampling
time. Salyers offered sug-
gestions on how to taste test
Woodford Reserve, a super-
premium, small-batch bour-
bon.
"Now if you're the John
Wayne-type, down it," he
said, drawing laughter. "I
had a guy did that one day
last week. It really shocked
me. We suggest that you sip
a little bit on your tongue,
let it sit, swallow and get
ready for it. And then do a
little bit more sipping."
Adding water and ice was
optional. Adding a splash of
cola wasn't, though.
"Now after you've pur-
chased a bottle, you may do
whatever you like with it,"
Salyers said.
At Maker's Mark, visitors
are encouraged to dip their
fingers into two fermenta-
tion tanks for a taste. In the
first tank, the grainy mash is
sweet. In the second tank,
the mash is bitter, having

cooked for three days.
In the rackhouse, there
are chuckles when tour
guide Herb Stucker tells vis-
itors about the "angel's
share," the portion of bour-
bon lost to evaporation
while in the barrel.
Bourbon-inspired foods
are popular at the Toll Gate
Cafe on the distillery's
grounds.
The eatery, on the site of a
former toll house, seats
about 15 people, with addi-
tional space on an outdoor
patio. Favorite dishes in-
clude bourbon barbecue
pulled pork and chicken
breast.
The most popular stop on
the Maker's Mark tour is the
bottling line. Cameras click
as five workers methodi-
cally dunk bottle tops into
tubs of hot red wax. It's the
last stage before the bottles
are boxed.
Visitors then sidle up to a
bar next to the gift shop.
Two glasses are placed in
front of each guest - one
glass containing a small
amount of clear, new
whiskey. The other has ma-
ture Maker's Mark
One woman laughs, say-
ing she choked after tasting
the stiff, clear whiskey
"You can choke, whatever
you want to on this one,"
Stucker replied. "Just the
next one, you've got to
smile."
The group then sniffs the
mature bourbon, followed
by tastes.
"See I told you, nothing
but smiles," Stucker said.
The tour might have
made a convert out of David
Smith, who favors premium
beers.
"I liked it," the St. Clair,
Mich., man said.

B The garden I'm eating'


ere's how I raised a wonderful,
healthy, fresh vegetable garden
working on it only 10 minutes a day.
I'd spend 10 minutes a day telling Sue
what to do and then I'd go play golf. It
couldn't have been easier. Some guys say
they haven't got the time to spend 10 min-
utes telling their wives how to garden, but
I say, "Make the time," and sure enough,
fresh fruit and vegetables will be yours all
summer long.
But then I learned my system
had a flaw. Sue doesn't listen to
me and does her gardening
without my help.
"In spite of it," she said when
I told her, that, like everyone
else in these hard times, I will
be growing my own garden this
year. Why should I give my
hard-earned money to a grocery
store when I can give it to
Burpee for seeds, the Home Jl
Depot for fencing, Lowe's for MUL
fertilizer, the garden supply
store for hoes, rakes, trowels,
dandelion pullers, tomato stakes, Japan-
ese beetle traps, hoses and 1,000 other
tools of the trade. Suddenly, grocery store
produce was starting to look like a bargain.
And I was already off schedule. The shop-
ping that day took two hours, not 10 min-
utes.
Sue showed me how to use the rototiller:
a complicated, dangerous, nasty-looking
bit of machinery. It would be easy to lose a
toe or break a collarbone if I wasn't care-
ful. After 10 minutes of hanging on for dear
life while the machine kicked and bucked,
I had one square foot of garden tilled and
ready to go. I was also missing my wallet
and my sunglasses. The rototiller had
shaken them out of my pocket and then
plowed them under. It took the better part
of 20 minutes to find both halves of my wal-
let. The sunglasses were a mangled knot of
metal and glass. Once again, I was off my
10-minutes-a-day schedule, and several
hundred dollars in the hole. At least I'm
not throwing my money down a rat hole.
I'm throwing it down a gopher hole.
After a few weeks of tilling 10 minutes a
day, I was missing my car keys, several fill-


ings, my lucky silver dollar, my Medic Alert
bracelet and my cell phone. But at last, the
garden was ready for planting. Let the sav-
ings begin.
Over the next week, I spent 10 minutes a
day planting bell peppers, tomatoes,
cilantro, zucchinis, cukes and six different
kinds of squash. Squash keeps for a long
time, you can eat it all winter long. The
weather was great. I planted and played
golf every day.This is so easy. I don't know
why everyone doesn't do it.
Plus, I'm getting close to nature,
seeing where our food comes
from, the earth and the sun.
Being out in the fresh air - it's
wonderful, it's living out loud. I
didn't know what I'd been miss-
ing all these years.
Suddenly, my garden took off.
The plants seemed to double in
size overnight The bigger they
M got, the more water they
LEN needed. Now, I was spending 30
minutes in the morning and 30
minutes in the evening water-
ing. That still left plenty of time to play
golf.
Sue has long hated golf. "Are you goof-
ing off again, today?" she'll ask.
"No, I'm playing golf."
She says, "That's what I just asked you."
The next week, the plants once again
doubled in size. Except, this time, the
things that doubled in size were weeds. It
was taking two hours a day watering and
two hours a day weeding to keep the gar-
den in shape. That still left plenty of time
for golf, but my back hurt, and I was tired
all the time. I had to cut back. Why did I
plant so many tomato's? Who will eat all
this cilantro? What am I going to do with a
few hundred bell peppers? The zucchinis
are like magic beans, they grow from an
inch to a baseball bat overnight. Why'did I
plant 10 of them? One plant could feed a
family of six for three months. I can't play
golf anymore with this back pain. I can't af-
ford the membership anyway.

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


A14 SUNDAY, APRIL 26, 2009


Wife caught up in fantasy


D ear Annie: I am experiencing first-
hand how damaging certain social
networking Web sites can be. My
wife and I have been married for 18 years.
Six months ago, I found out she was hav-
ing inappropriate contact with a man
through one of these Web sites. Since then,
there have been several other men, and
she has been communicating
with the latest one for nearly
three months,
When I approached her about
what was going on, I was accused
of spying and invading her pri-
vacy, both of which are true.
Since I found out what she is
doing, it has become all-consum-
ing. I have developed insecuri-
ties I didn't have before.
We have three children whom
I love dearly. I want to keep our
family intact, but my world has
been shattered. The girl I loved ANO
has turned into someone I do not MAII
know. I am willing to go for coun-
seling, but she is not. What help
is there for me? - Crash the Internet
Dear Crash: Your wife is living a fantasy
over the computer, and she doesn't want to
let it go. She hasn't quite grasped what she
risks losing in the process - her marriage,
her husband, her children and her self-re-
spect Go for counseling without her. It will
help you decide what your next step will
be and how to protect your children. You
cannot force your wife to face reality, but it
certainly sounds like she could use a
major wake-up call.
Dear Annie: I am 35 years old and sin-
gle. My mother passed away a year ago,
and I am not in contact with my father. I
don't have a lot of family My older sister
lives in another state with my teenage
niece. I do not have a will because there's
no real property or valuables to speak of. I
have a $50,000 life insurance policy, and
my niece and a close friend are the bene-
ficiaries.
If something were to happen to me, who
would take care of my burial arrange-
ments and memorial service? Do I create
a will for this purpose only and designate
my friend to use his share of the life in-
surance policyto pay for my burial ex-
penses? Or do I designate a mortuary as
the beneficiary?
I am sure I cannot be the only young per-
son wondering what happens to me after I
am gone. I know my sister and niece can-


I

I


not afford to take care of these expenses,
nor do I want them to. - Still Single in Cal-
ifornia
Dear California: Putting funeral in-
structions in the will is pointless. By the
time your will is read, it will be too late. In-
stead, consider a prepaid funeral where
you select and pay for the arrangements in
advance. (Make sure you use a
reputable funeral home and
keep copies of your receipts
and contracts.) Put your wishes
for a memorial service in writ-
ing, and give copies to your at-
torney, your friend and your
sister, along with the details of
the prepaid funeral arrange-
ments. Rest easy.
Dear Annie: This is in re-
sponse to "30-year Alcoholic,"
who can't seem to stay sober. I,
too, had a problem with alco-
IIE'S hol. I cleaned up my act briefly
LBOX when I was pregnant, but
- shortly after, I wanted to drink
again. I also suffered from
postpartum depression.
At the time, I had no insurance, so I went
to a local counseling center where my care
was based on my income. The doctor pre-
.scribed medication to get me through the
postpartum depression. It helped me so
much that I started seeing a therapist. She
told me alcohol was masking my anxiety
and depression. Further therapy uncov-
ered adult ADHD. The therapist put me on
an antidepressant and a nonstimulant
ADHD medication. I no longer have the
desire to drink at all. You gave her great
advice. I hope this letter gives her hope. -
10-Year Alcoholic
Dear Alcoholic: Thanks so much for
sharing your story. You can be sure it will
help many others.

established. Sticking to what
you know will improve your
chances for a major success.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)-
Today could be one of those
unusual times where it is wiser
to trust almost anyone else's
judgment over your own.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
-A joint venture in which
you're presently engaged could
be severely damaged if you
allow doubt to enter the picture
and cause dissension.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
- Fear of failure could be more
damaging to a joint endeavor
than anything anyone else
might do.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)-


Make sure that co-workers who
equally share the work equally
share the benefits as well. Di-
vide things according to effort.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)-
Avoid risks today. Don't take
chances when doing anything
dangerous or critical, even if it
means doing things the hard way.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)-
Think twice before making a
commitment that could mean dis-
appointing someone who is plan-
ning to spend the day with you.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)-
If you hope to gamer support
from a co-worker or an associ-
ate, treat him or her as you
would a close friend.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec.
21) - Disappointment can
occur if your expectations for
material gain are unreasonable
or simply don't live up to reality.

Astros' Hampton can't get a decision


Chronicle
Houston Astros pitcher Mike
Hampton gave up four earned
runs over the course of six innings
and earned a second straight no-
decision Saturday night against
the Milwaukee Brewers.
The Brewers led the Astros, 9-8,
in the 11th inning at press time.
The former Crystal River High
School standout and Homosassa
native gave up eight hits and three
walks while striking out four and
yielding a solo home run to Prince
Fielder in the fourth inning and a
three-run shot in the sixth inning
to the Brewers' Bill Hall.
Hampton left with the score tied
4-4 and saw his ERA in 2009 rise to
3.86.


Hammerin' Hank gets own
Hall of Fame exhibit
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. - More
than three decades after his final big-
league game, Hank Aaron Is still
thrilling baseball fans.
An overflow crowd at the National
Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum
watched Saturday as the 75-year-old
Aaron helped dedicate the museum's
newest exhibit, "Hank Aaron: Chas-
ing the Dream."
Aaron, who attended the ceremony
with his wife Billye and Atlanta Braves
chairman emeritus Bill Bartholomay,
officially opened an exhibit that fea-
tures many items Aaron has donated
to the Hall of Fame.
"No matter what you accomplish,
what you achieve, you don't go down


the path by yourself," Aaron said, "I
want to thank everyone who helped
me along that path."
"Chasing the Dream" features four
topical explorations of Aaron's life,
from his early days as a youngster in
Mobile, Ala., through his present en-
deavors with the Chasing the Dream
Foundation, The exhibit details his
climb to excellence in his major league
career, along with an entire section
dedicated to chasing Babe Ruth's his-
toric home run record in 1974.
The exhibit features the bat and ball
Aaron used to hit home run No. 714.

Associated Press
NEW YORK - Matthew
Stafford's mission is daunting:
Lead the Detroit Lions back
from the only 0-16 season in
NFL history. Mark Sanchez has
nearly as big a challenge: He'll
compete to replace Brett Favre.
The Lions found the center-
piece for one of the biggest re-
building jobs in league history,
taking Georgia quarterback
Matthew Stafford with the over-
all No. 1 pick in the draft Satur-
day. Detroit already had signed
the 21-year-old Stafford to a six-
year deal with $41.7 million in
guarantees and a maximum
value of $78 million.
Stafford, who left school a
year early, is not expected to
start immediately.
"I'm a competitive guy,"
Stafford said. "I'm going to try to
get ready as quick as I can.
"I put a lot of pressure on my-
self to be great anyway."

pound in event
LARRY BUGG
For the Chronicle
NEW PORT RICHEY -
Miles Underhill wasn't
thrilled with his effort at
state.
The Citrus High heavy-
weight had a 330-pound
bench press and a 290-
pound clean and jerk for a
620-pound total. He fin-
ished 12th overall in the
Class 1A FHSAA Boys State
Weightlifting Meet at River
Ridge High School.
Citrus High teammate
Nick Tarr had a 255-pound
bench press but scratched
all three attempts at the
clean and jerk
Crystal River High's lone
lifter, Zack Marshall, had a
365-pound bench press but
also scratched his clean and
jerk attempts.
There was plenty of pres-
sure on lifters Saturday at
the Jim Valentine Athletic
Complex gym. One school,
Baker County, even had a
large cheering section, a
rare thing at a weightlifting
meet
"I did way better at re-
gionals," Underhill said.
"My total was so much
higher. I have been working
out and I was tired. Last
year, I scratched out at
sectionals."
"I was pretty disap-
pointed at scratching out,"
said Tarr, although he was
able to smile not long after
that "I was disappointed in
the lifts I had on the bench
but I try not to get down
about it"
The Citrus High coach
was proud of his lifters get-
ting to state.
"They are both great
kids," said coach Jim
Haeser. "Over Spring
Break, I had to come back
from my vacation because
they wanted to work out.
They are self-motivated. I
am proud of both of them
getting to state."


Ragan claims first-ever win on Nationwide circuit


Associated Press
TALLADEGA, Ala. -
David Ragan earned his
first NASCAR victory by
passing Ryan Newman right
before the finish line in the
Nationwide Series race Sat-
urday at Talladega Super-
speedway,
Ragan won for the first
time in 196 starts - 85 in Na-
tionwide - spanning all
three of NASCAR's top series,
"We've been waiting for
this for a long time," Ragan


said. "I didn't know if it
would come this weekend or
not A lot of fun. A lot of emo-
tions. We've got 500 miles to
do it again tomorrow."
Newman started from the
pole and led the field on a
final restart for a two-lap
sprint to the finish. He had
his hands full with Dale
Earnhardt Jr., who followed
him bumper-to-bumper as he
looked for a chance to pass.
But Newman and Earn-
hardt made contact when
Earnhardt tried to dart


around him on the final lap.
Ragan used some momen-
tum off a push from Joey
Logano and squeezed by
Newman for the win.
Earnhardt, who was shuf-
fled back to fifth, waited for
Ragan on pit road to con-
gratulate him on the win.
Newman finished second,
Logano was third. Tony
Raines and Earnhardt
rounded out the top five.
"It's cool to get David that
win," Logano said. "He's
been trying for a while now."


For car owner Jack
Roush, it was his second
consecutive Nationwide Se-
ries win. Greg Biffle's vic-
tory in Phoenix last
weekend was Roush's 100th
in the Nationwide Series.

utive bogey-free 65s, she had eight
birdies, two bogeys and a double

Wade leads Heat to win


Miami star's 29

pts. gives team 2-1

lead over Hawks

Associated Press

MIAMI - Dwyane Wade
swished a 3-pointer, then turned
and shook his hand like it was
burning.
Yep, Wade and the Miami Heat
are that hot right now.
Wade finished with 29 points
and eight assists, Jermaine
O'Neal added 22 points and 10
rebounds, and the Heat extended
Atlanta's decade-plus road play-
off drought, beating the Hawks
107-78 Saturday night in Game 3
of their Eastern Conference first-
round matchup.
It was over early: Atlanta
missed 17 of its first 19 shots, and
a 25-6 Heat run to end the first
half pushed the lead to 50-29.
"We knew there would be a lot
of energy in the building, so we
played off that early," Wade said.
"And defensively we came out
very tough."
Josh Smith, Al Horford and
Mike Bibby scored 13 apiece for
Atlanta, which is 0-12 in road
playoff games since May 8, 1997,
losing all but one by at least 10
points.
The Heat lead the series 2-1
and host Game 4 Monday night.
"No more excuses," Horford
said. "We're going to have to
bring it fuego on Monday"
When teams split the first two
games of an NBA series, the
Game 3 winner advances 76 per-
cent of the time. And in recent
years, the edge has been even
more pronounced - of the last 27
series that were tied at 1-1, the
Game 3 winner ultimately pre-
vailed on 22 occasions.
That's a bad sign for the
Hawks.
Mavs 99, Spurs 90
DALLAS - Josh Howard scored
28 points, seven in an early second-
half spurt that put the Dallas Maver-
icks ahead to stay in a 99-90 victory
over the San Antonio Spurs on Satur-
day that gave them a 3-1 lead in their
first-round series.

him. He won it by 6 feet at Talladega.
He did it with a little bit of help, and
it wasn't even his teammate."
Ragan knew he was fortunate to
have Logano's help and to get
drenched in soda by his crew in Vic-
tory Lane. He just couldn't believe
his dry spell had lasted from his
trucks and Nationwide debuts in
2004. His first two Cup starts were

been disappointed at times, but a
lot of people have come up and said
don't force this thing."
The race was marred late by cau-
tions that made the overtime finish
necessary.
Matt Kenseth was in a scary acci-
dent with 12 laps left when he lost
control of the No. 16 car. The car
skidded on its roof, flipped three
times and caught fire before it set-
tled in the grass. He made a quick
escape from the car, as his pregnant
wife watched, put on his hat and
hopped in the ambulance.
Kenseth went to block Kyle
Busch, and when he moved back to
his line, Kenseth took a shot from
his Roush Fenway Racing team-
mate Ragan to spark the wreck
Kenseth was able to smile after
the accident
"I was really just hanging on hop-
ing I ended up rightside' up,"
Kenseth said.

Boston Red Sox's Mike Lowell,
run homer as New York Yankee
In the seventh Inning Saturday

Red Sox 16, Yankees 11
BOSTON - Jason Varitek hit
a grand slam, Mike Lowell
drove in six runs and the Boston
Red Sox eamed their biggest
comeback victory against the -
Yankees since 1968, beating
New York 16-11 Saturday for
their ninth straight win.
Boston was trailing 6-0 be-
fore its offense got untracked
with five runs in the fourth in-
ning. Lowell hit a three-run
homer in the seventh to put the
Red Sox ahead for good, then
added a three-run double in the
eighth after the Yankees again
walked Friday night's star
Jason Bay in front of him.
Hideki Okajima (1-0) got two
outs for the win, then Ramon
Ramirez got out of the eighth
after putting runners on second
and third with one out. Dustin
Pedroia had three hits and Ja-
coby Ellsbury hit his first homer
of the year for Boston.
Robinson Cano homered
twice and drove in five for the
! Yankees, and Jonathan Al-
baladejo (1-1) - the fourth of
seven New York pitchers -
took the loss.
In all, 12 pitchers threw 385
pitches in a 4 hour, 21 minute
game and managed to retire
the side in order just twice -

ChiSox 10, Blue Jays 2
CHICAGO - Alexei
Ramirez hit his fifth grand slam
and drove in a career-high five
RBIs, and Jermaine Dye
added a two-run homer for the
Chicago White Sox in a 10-2
victory over the Toronto Blue
Jays on Saturday night.
Ramirez capped off a six-run
fifth inning with a slam to left
on a 3-2 pitch off Toronto re-
liever Shawn Camp to put the
White Sox up 8-2. He needed
just 152 games to reach five
grand slams, second fastest in
major league history. Rudy
York with the Detroit Tigers did
it in 139 games in the 1938
season, according to Elias
Sports Bureau.
It was just what the strug-
gling shortstop needed.
Ramirez came into the game
with a .167 average and had
White Sox manager Ozzie
Guillen concerned after falter-
ing at the plate and in the field
in a 14-0 loss to the Blue Jays
on Friday. It was Ramirez's
first home run of the season.
Paul Konerko put the White
Sox ahead with an RBI single
in the fifth off Toronto starter
Brian Burres.

Braves 10, Reds 2
CINCINNATI -Atlanta
Braves third baseman Chipper
Jones already had an impres-
sive track record against Reds
right-hander Bronson Arroyo.
Yunel Escobar got angry
enough to start building his own.
Escobar, who was hit by a
pitch Friday, drove in two runs
with a double and a single in
the first two innings against Ar-
royo and finished a triple short
of the cycle with a career-high
four RBIs as Atlanta beat
Cincinnati 10-2 on Saturday.
Just in time, said manager
Bobby Cox, who saw outfielder
Garrett Anderson and catcher
Brian McCann go on the dis-
abled list Friday and Saturday.
Jones hit a three-run homer
and also drove in four runs
while improving to 11-for-23
(.478) with three homers and
10 RBIs in his career against
Arroyo. The Braves jumped on
the right-hander for six runs in
the first two innings and
handed him his first loss in

Mets 8, Nationals 2
NEW YORK - Mike Pelfrey
gave the Mets a healthy and ef-
fective start, Ryan Church drove
in three runs and New York took
advantage of sloppy play by the.
stumbling Washington Nationals
in an 8-2 victory Saturday.
Still struggling to get the big
hit, New York scored four un-
earned runs off Daniel Cabrera
to build an early cushion for
Pelfrey, who missed his previ-
ous turn in the rotation due to
forearm tendinitis.
Mets manager Jerry Manuel,
recently critical of his starting
pitchers besides Johan San-
tana, said before the game that
he was most concerned about
seeing quality stuff and velocity
from Pelfrey, rather than sharp
command.
But the big right-hander had
his sinker working, generating
14 consecutive outs on
grounders before Elijah Dukes'
RBI triple chased him with two
down.in the sixth.

Associated Press
St. Louis Cardinals' Albert Pujols, right, acknowledges the
crowd after hitting his seventh-inning grand slam.against the
Chicago Cubs on Saturday in St. Louis.


Cardinals 8, Cubs 2
ST. LOUIS -Albert Pujols
put everything he could into the
pitch from Cubs rookie reliever
David Patton, and the result
was hardly a surprise.
Pujols hit his second grand
slam of the season and sur-
passed 1,000 career RBIs,
sending St. Louis to an 8-2 vic-
tory over the Chicago Cubs on
Saturday and giving the surging
Cardinals their ninth straight
home win.
The Cardinals have won 10
of their 12 home games this
season and are 13-5 overall,
good for first place in the NL
Central.
Pujols drove the first pitch from
Patton in the seventh inning to
left field an estimated 441 feet. It
was the eighth career grand
slam for Pujols, who is hitting
.348 with 25 RBIs and seven
homers already this season.
Patton gave up a single and
two walks around a sacrifice
bunt to set up Pujols.
Patton pitched the past two
seasons for Class-A Modesto
before being acquired last De-
cember by the Cubs from
Cincinnati. He said he wanted
to throw a strike to Pujols to try
and get ahead in the count.
St. Louis manager Tony La


RLissa certainly did - and he's
been seeing it 2001.
"What a player," La Russa
said. "It's a pleasure to watch
him play. Actually, it's a pleas-
ure to watch him practice. It's a
pleasure to watch him in the
clubhouse."

Down three goals and facing

moved up two spots in the
draft order, swapping
places with the Cleveland
Browns, who also received
Tampa Bay's sixth-round
pick (No. 191 overall).
"He's a long-term deci-
sion. He's the direction
we're going," said Morris,
though the Bucs aren't nec-
essarily expecting Freeman
to be the starter right away.
"I don't want to hold him
back," the coach added.
"Also, I don't want to rush
him into the process."
The move was a bit sur-
prising because the Bucs
have spent most of the off-
season bolstering the of-
fense - placing the
franchise tag on leading re-
ceiver Antonio Bryant, trad-
ing for tight .end. Kellen
Winslow and signing free
agent running back Derrick
Ward.
Although landing a quar-
-terback of the future was
considered a need, many
felt a defensive selection
made more sense, espe-
cially after general man-
ager Mark Dominik signed
veteran Byron Leftwich to
compete with Brian Griese,
Luke McCown and second-
year pro Josh Johnson for
'the starting job.
The Bucs have had one of
the stingiest defenses in the
league the past decade. But
the unit became a liability
in 2008 and was one of the
reasons the team lost four
straight after a 9-3 start to
miss the playoffs.

The Jets took the other pre-
mier quarterback in the draft,
Sanchez of Southern Califor-
na.
"I learned how to compete
and deal with pressure at 'SC
and in a large media market
in Los Angeles," Sanchez said
of stepping in for the retired
Favre, "and things are only
going to bigger and better It's
a very exciting time, a special
time in my life, so I'm excited
to get things going."
Oddly, both drew plenty of
boos and chants of "OVER-
RATED" to go with the many
cheers.
The Lions, whose poor
draft history this decade
under Matt Millen eventually'
led to the winless season,
have veteran Daunte Culpep-
per as the projected starter
this year under new coach
Jim Schwartz. That should
give the 21-year-old Stafford a
chance to watch and lear..
"Now, it's up to us to de-
velop him and get good play-
ers around him," Detroit
general manager Martin May-
hew said.
The Lions drafted tight end
Brandon Pettigrew of Okla-
homa State with the 20th pick
overall, which they acquired
from Dallas in the trade that
sent wide receiver Roy
Williams to the Cowboys.
Nine of the last 12 top over-
all picks have been quarter-
backs. They have included
the likes of Peyton and Eli
Manning. And Tim Couch,
David Carr and Alex Smith.
The massive trade saw
Cleveland send its pick to
New York, prompting wild
cheering in the arena. When
the Jets chose Sanchez, the


fans had equally vociferous
positive and negative reac-
tions.
Sanchez started for just one
season at USC, leading the
Trojans to a 12-1 record and a
Rose Bowl victory. He had six

by Morris and Dominik,
who decided against re-
signing quarterback Jeff
Garcia and released start-
ing linebackers Derrick
Brooks and Cato June, as
well as running back War-
rick Dunn and receiver Ike
Hilliard.
Freeman, the third quar-
terback selected Saturday,
threw for a school-record
8,078 yards and 44 touch-
downs in three seasons at
Kansas State, where Morris
was the defensive coordina-
tor for one season in 2006.

level - you go get him,"
Morris said. "Those other
needs, we'll address them."

pounds, Freeman has a
strong, accurate arm and
feels he's every bit the
prospect as Matthew

Detroit Lions, and Mark

the New York Jets.
"I feel like I'm the better

Freeman said, adding that

"With Mark, I think he's a
special guy," Jets coach Rex
Ryan said.
New York sent the No. 17
and No. 52 overall choices,
plus defensive end Kenyon
Coleman, safety Abram Elam
and quarterbackBrett Ratliff,
to Cleveland.
The Browns pulled off two
more trades to keep moving
down in the opening round
and adding later-roultd picks.
At No. 21, the Browns finally
stopped dealingand took cen-
ter Alex Mackof California.
Before that, Baylor offen-
sive tackle Jason Smith was
the second pick, by the St
Louis Rams. The 6-foot-4, 306-
pound former tight end
should be used to playing for
a weak team: Baylor was 18-
31 in his four years there.
Kansas City, like St Louis,
used nearly all 10 of its min-
utes seeking a trade before
selecting LSU defensive end
Tyson Jackson. He will join
college teammate Glenn
Dorsey on the Chiefs' defen-
sive line.
Wake Forest linebacker
Aaron Curry, who had spoken
with Detroit about being the
top overall pick, landed in
Seattle at No. 4. Curry is con-
sidered capable of playing in-
side or outside in the pros.
Cincinnati went for Ala-
bama tackle Andre Smith, the
first AP All-American se-
lected, at No. 6. Smith had
some issues that included
leaving the NFL combine
early without notifying any-
one, but the Bengals were
unswayed.
Another tackle, Virginia's
Eugene Monroe, went eighth
overall to Jacksonville, one
spot after Oakland - no sur-
prise here - was seduced by
the speed of Maryland's Dar-
rius Heyward-Bey. The
Raiders grabbed the player
who had the fast 40-yard


time in workouts, even
though many projected him
to go far later.

tackle B.J. Raji to Green Bay

Jags nab potential franchise tackle


ax beef up

offensive line with

Virginias Monroe

Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE - The Jack-
sonville Jaguars started their fran-
chise 14 years ago by drafting left
tackle Tony Boselli.
The team's rebuilding process
began in similar fashion Saturday.
The Jaguars upgraded their of-
fensive line by selecting left tackle
Eugene Monroe with the eighth
pick in the NFL draft, hoping the
6-foot-5, 316-pounder from Vir-
ginia will be a cornerstone for a
team retooling its roster after
cleaning house this offseason.
"When you add that kind of tal-
ent to your group, you're better as
a unit, you're better as a football
team," offensive line coach Andy
Heck said. "I'm excited because
he is a young player, because he's
talented, because he's a guy that
we would anticipate being a


starter here for a long time.
"To have a guy with that kind of
talent at left tackle, I think we're
going to be in good shape there."
Monroe is the first offensive
linemen drafted by Jacksonville in
the first round since Boselli in
1995. Boselli turned out to be a
five-time Pro Bowl selection.
The Jaguars can only hope for
the same from Monroe, who is ex-
pected to step in for KhalifBarnes
at left tackle. Jacksonville parted
ways with Barnes after last season,
then signed three-time Pro Bowl
left tackle Tra Thomas last month.
Now, the 34-year-old Thomas
likely will move to right tackle or
serve as a mentor for Monroe..
"I expect to go to (minicamp)
this weekend and work and learn
the system and work my way into a
starting position and being able to
contribute to the team," said Mon-
roe, one of nine players in New
York for the draft.
The Jaguars had considered
trading down from the No. 8 spot,
especially if quarterback Mark
Sanchez was available. They knew
several teams were interested in
moving up to grab Sanchez. But


when the Southern California
quarterback went to the New York
Jets at No. 5, new general man-
ager Gene Smith figured he would
end up selecting a player
But Smith never expected Mon-
roe to be around. Smith, as well as
many mock drafts, had Monroe
going in the top five picks.
"We never anticipated this guy
coming down this far," Smith said.
"We're very happy that he came to
us like that. It doesn't always hap-
pen like that. I think we're very
fortunate."
The Jaguars are confident Mon-
roe fits all three of their require-
ments for the first round:
outstanding ability, no character
concerns and no medical issues.
Monroe allowed just two sacks
after moving into the starting
lineup as a sophomore in college.

The Miami Dolphins selected Illinois corerback Vontae Davis (1) with the No. 25 overall pick during the 2009 NFL Draft in New York City on Saturday.

Miami attempts to bolster defense-bypicking Illinois DB Davis at No. 25 overall


Associated Press


DAVIE - The Miami Dolphins
came up with an answer Saturday
for Tom Brady, Terrell Owens and
Mark Sanchez.
They hope it's the correct one.
Illinois cornerback Vontae Davis
was taken with the 25th pick in the
NFL draft by the Dolphins, mind-
ful that their AFC East rivals ex-
pect to have upgraded passing
attacks this year.
Davis figures he can make a dif-
ference even as a rookie.
"My expectations will be to be
the defensive player of the year in
the National Football League," he
said.
The Dolphins expect Davis to


upgrade a secondary that ranked
25th in the league against the
pass last year and lost starting
cornerback Andre Goodman in
free agency.
Solid pass defense will be a ne-
cessity in the AFC East, where the
Dolphins are defending division
champions. Brady is expected to
return for New England, Buffalo
signed Pro Bowl receiver Owens
and the New York Jets used their
top draft pick to select Southern
Cal quarterback Sanchez.
Miami devoted its top pick to a
cornerback for the first time since
selecting draft bust Jamar
Fletcher in 2001.
Davis worked out for the Dol-
phins and said he received favor-


able feedback from the team's foot-
ball czar, Bill Parcells.
"(He said) I fit the style of their
defense with physical play and
being aggressive," Davis said. "I
consider myself a complete cor-
ner. My strength is coming up to
tackle and being physical in run
support."
Davis would have been drafted
higher if not for concerns about his
attitude and work ethic. Illinois
coach Ron Zook briefly demoted
Davis to second string last year but
touts him as an excellent NFL
prospect.
"People have their opinions,"
Davis said. "Everybody who knows
Vontae knows I'm a great person
and a great player. Bill Parcells


speaks louder than words. For him
to draft me, he knows the type of
person I am."
A three-year starter who turned
pro after his junior season, Davis
is durable, tackles well and has
good bloodlines. His brother. tight
end Vernon Davis, was taken with
the sixth overall pick in 2006 by
San Francisco.
Davis was at a restaurant with
family and friends in hi home-
town of W.ih;,il,,. lD.'.,. when
Dolphins general manager Jel 'h'e-
land phoned with the news he had
been drafted.
So is he ready to cover Owens
and Randy Moss'?
"Oh yeah." Davis said. "I'm
ready"


Harvin

Associated Press

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -
The Minnesota Vikings went
with big-play threat Percy
Harvin with the 22nd overall
draft choice Saturday, choos-
ing the Florida receiver de-
spite reports of a failed drug
test at the NFL combine and
Durability questions.
"When we evaluated him
just on football between the
lines, he was definitely a top-
10 pick," said Rick Spielman,
the Vikings' vice president for
player personnel.
The 5-foot-ll Harvin split
time between running back
and receiver in.three seasons
at Florida. He racked up
nearly 3,900 total yards to help_
the Gators:.to two; national ti-
ties. But several publishidi'i''
ports said Harvin failed a drug
test at the February combine.
Spielman raved about
Harvin's ability and insisted
the team was satisfied with
his character after several vis-
its with the 184-pound native
of Virginia Beach, Va., who
skipped his final season of el-
igibility at Florida. Spielman
and wide receivers coach
George Stewart, who once
worked with Terrell Owens
with the San Francisco 49ers,
talked to Harvin after his
workout for scouts on campus.
Coach Brad Childress made a
personal visit to Florida,
which Spielman said helped
seal the deal.
Team officials also dis-
cussed Harvin in depth on
Friday with owner Zygi Wilf
and president Mark Wilf,
Spielman said, once the pos-
sibility he would be available
at No. 22 became clear.
"We feel we have a very
strong locker room, a very
strong support staff here,"
Spielman said, adding: "We felt
comfortable enough that he
was just too explosive of a play-
maker and too hard to pass up
when we were picking."

Flaming Ups band mem-
bers Wayne Coyne, Kliph
Scurlock and Michael Ivins
celebrate Senate Joint Res-
olution 24 that names "Do
You Realize??" by the
Flaming Lips as the Official
Oklahoma Rock song in
Oklahoma City.

Gov. intervenes in
Flaming Lips flap
OKLAHOMA CITY -
Oklahoma lawmakers who
voted against making a
Flaming Lips tune the offi-
cial state rock song repre-
sent a minority of
"small-minded religious
wackos," the band's lead
singer says.
Most state House mem-
bers voted for a resolution
recognizing 2002's "Do
You Realize??," but con-
servatives who said they
were offended by the
band's clothing and lan-
guage mustered enough
votes to keep it from being
adopted.
"Me, I just say look, it's a
little minority of some
small-minded religious
wackos who think they can
tell people what kind of
T-shirts and what kind of
music they can listen to,
and the smart, rational,
reasonable people of Okla-
homa are never going to
buy into that" frontman
Wayne Coyne told Tulsa
World in an interview Fri-
day.
Gov. Brad Henry re-
solved the issue by an-
nouncing he would sign an
executive order proclaim-
ing "Do You Realize??"
the official rock song of
Oklahoma. The song
earned more than half of
the 21,000 votes cast in an
online contest
The Grammy-winning
group, formed in Norman
in 1983, is known for its
psychedelic rock and
lyrics.
Rep. Corey Holland, R-
Marlow, was offended
when band member
Michael Ivins wore a red
T-shirt with a yellow ham-
mer-and-sickle emblem, a
traditional symbol of the
Communist Party, during a
visit to the Capitol last
month.
"The great thing about
this country is he has the
right to make whatever
statement he wants to
make," Holland said. "I
have the right to be of-
fended by that"
The shirt was a Christ-
mas present to Ivins from
Coyne's wife, and he wore
it to a rehearsal earlier
that day, said Coyne, who
was offended by Holland's
implication that the band
is un-American.

The interplay among the four
women and their relations with men
fueled the comedy, and the show
amassed a big audience and 10
Emmys, including two as best comedy
series and individual awards for each
ofthe-stars.
McClanahan said Arthur felt con-
strained by the show during its later
years and in 1992 she announced she
was leaving "Golden Girls."
"Bea liked to be the star of the show,
she didn't really like to do that ensem-
ble playing," McClanahan said.
McClanahan first worked with
Arthur on "Maude," playing her best
friend, Vivian. The women quickly be-
came close friends in real life. Mc-
Clanahan recalled Arthur as a kind
and caring person with a no-nonsense
edge.
The three other stars returned in
"The Golden Palace," but it lasted only
one season.
Arthur was born Bernice Frankel in
New York City in 1922. When she was
11, her family moved to Cambridge,
Md., where her father opened a cloth-
ing store. At 12 she had grown to full
height, and she dreamed of being a pe-
tite blond movie star like June Allyson.
There was one advantage of being tall
and deep-voiced: She was chosen for
the male roles in school plays.
Bernice - she hated the name and
adopted her mother's nickname of
Bea - overcame shyness about her
size by winning over her classmates
with wisecracks. She was elected the
wittiest girl in her class. After two
years at a junior college in Virginia,
she earned a degree as a medical lab
technician, but she "loathed" doing
lab work at a hospital.
Acting held more appeal, and she
enrolled in a drama course at the
New School of Social Re-

OR BUST

COLOMA, CALIF. - THERE'S STILL GOLD IN CALIFORNIA'S
Sierra Nevada foothills, and a new rush to find it.
Not since the Great Depression have so many hard-
luck people been lured by prospecting, hoping to
find their fortune tumbling down a mountain stream.
The recession and high gold prices are helping to
fuel the latest gold craze, especially among workers
who have lost jobs.
"I guess there's always hope. At home, I don't have
any right now," said Steve Biorck, a concrete finisher
who headed west because construction work dried
up in Tennessee. Now he spends days standing knee-
deep in an icy creek coaxing gold flakes from a
swirling pan of gravel. I CONTINUED ON PAGE C3

According to the radio

this is contributing to
global warming. Pigs also
produce gas - which I be-

supposed to eat them on
Earth Day, either. The
Earth Day folks sent out
messages that cows are

be avoided.
I am not making this up.
In Brazil, cows con-

and thus are said to be the
country's major cause of

Symposium brings together allpolitical stripes


On Wednesday, April 15,
The Lou Frey Institute
of Politics and Govern-
ment at the University of Cen-
tral Florida sponsored its 13th
semiannual symposium, "The
First 100 Days: Policies and
Approaches for the New Ad-
ministration." More than 500
students attended the daytime
session, and close to 600 at-
tended the evening session,
which featured Larry Wilmore
from "The Daily Show."


The symposium was also
seen over the Internet by sev-
eral thousand students. The
symposium is available on
DVD; please contact
Wvww.loufrey.org.
Let me try to give you some
highlights from the various
morning speakers to hope-
fully whet your appetite. For-
mer U.S. Rep. Bill Zeliff,
R-N.H., started out by saying
that he thought President
Obama had done some great


things for the country. Zeliff
feels that President Obama's
ability to communicate, to-
gether with the fact that the
voters had given him total
control of the House and Sen-
ate, has given him momen-
tum. However, as usual, the
devil is in the details.
This bailout of more than
$2.4 trillion is immense com-
pared to the bailout some
years ago of the savings and
loan industry, which was ap-


proximately $120 billion. He
noted that one of the key is-
sues for Congress is trying to
get Medicare, Medicaid and
Social Security under control.
If nothing changes, these three
items will eat up 70 percent of
the budget in about 30 years.
Former U.S. Rep. Jim Slat-
tery, D-Kan., pointed out that
President Obama has cap-
tured the spirit of the mo-
ment, like President Ronald

It caught me by sur-
prise. It was an e-mail
this past week from
former county commis-
sioner Joyce Valentino,
who simply wrote,
"Thought you might be in-
terested."
Below that was an arti-
cle that opened with:
"Gun-toting granny Ava
Estelle, 81, was so ticked-
off when two thugs raped
her 18-year-old grand-
daughter that she tracked
the unsuspecting ex-cons
down - and shot off their
testicles.
"The old lady spent a
week hunting those men
down - and, when she
found them, she took re-
venge on them in her own
special way, said Mel-
bourne (Australia) police
investigator Evan Delp.
"Then she took a taxi to
the nearest police sta-
tion, laid the gun on the
sergeant's desk and told
him as calm as could be:
'Those bas***** will never
rape anybody again, by
God."'
It was an entertaining
read, and my gut reaction
was, "Go, Granny, go!"
That reaction was fol-
lowed by, "Boy, hope she
got the right guys."
I then crossed my legs,
for some reason.
It surprised me that

THE BOTTOM LINE



County job cuts



are never easy


These are tough days in
local government
The realities of our
country's economic downturn
hit home recently when In-
terim Citrus County Adminis-
trator Eber Brown announced
that 40 county positions were
being eliminated. Twenty-two
of those positions were empty
because of employee turnover,
but 18 current employees were
notified on April 17 that their
jobs were being
eliminated.
Each employee THE I
was given two
weeks' severance County
pay and told to
clean out their OUR 01
work areas.
The reduction Reduced
in the county is the on
workforce was in-
evitable, as tax
revenues are declining at an
alarming rate. The decrease in
tax dollars is coming from the
decreased valuation of homes
and land throughout the
county.
In truth, further reductions
will probably be necessary in
the months to come if the
county commission is going to
stick to its plan of holding the
millage rate steady. The only
way to avoid further reductions
would be to increase the tax
rate - a decision that would-be
highly unpopular with taxpay-
ers.
The job eliminations were
extraordinarily awkward be-
cause the county does not cur-
rently have a permanent
county administrator. Commis-
sioners booted administrator
Anthony Schembri earlier in
the year and Brown was asked
to serve in the top post until a
new administrator could be se-
lected.
While there may be some
second-guessing going on
about Brown's decision to
move ahead with a staff-reduc-

Tea Party' purpose,
The purpose of the grassroots
tea parties is for what seems to
be the compromise of our Consti-
tutional form of government Gov-
ernment appears to be planning
to take over the banking industry,
auto industry, energy develop-
ment and delivery (cap and
trade) and possibly health care.
The $800 billion stimulus bill
was forced through without re-
view or comments. Most, if not
all, of the representatives did
not have time to read the bill be-
fore a vote was forced.
Table'S4 fromthe-White_..
House budget shows the un-
heard-of spending plans for the
next 10 years.
(Here is a list of 2008 and) the
first three years, in billions of
dollars: 2008 - 2,534 receipts,
2,983 expenses, 459 deficit; 2009
- 2,186 receipts, 3,938 expenses,
1,752 deficit; 2010 - 2,381 re-
ceipts, 3,552 expenses, 1,171
deficit;. and 2011 - 2,713 receipts,
3,625 expenses, 912 deficit'(For a. .
total deficit of $4,294 billion.)
It is obvious that fiscal respon-
sibility is riot part of the budget
plan. Keep in mind that the
TARP bill and 2008 budget
deficit are part of the current
$1.2 trillion deficit that the 2009-
11 deficits will be added to.
The Heritage Foundation pre-
dicts that the publicly held debt
will be $12.5 trillion by 2019. They
note that this budget expands
government spending 25 percent
at a time when we should be cut-
ting costs to pay down our debt or
at least balance our budget

This 2009 budget includes
8,570 earmarks and $634 billion
for expanded health care.
The government forced AIG
managers to return bonuses they
received for work performed, but
none of the politicians returned
any of the canipaign contribu-
tions they received from AIG.
The proposed taxes on energy
will obviously be passed down to
the users at a time when unem-
ployment is high and household
incomes are decreasing.


The grassroots Tea Party
movement believes the politi-
cians from both parties are more
interested in re-election and
power than representing the
people of America. Running up
debt like this is totally irrespon-
sible, un-American and uncon-
stitutional.
To support these expenses
would require a person to have
no knowledge of economics,-no
understanding of mathematics,
and no understanding of our con-
stitutional form of government

Special interests
I want to commend CNN for fi-
nally coming out of the closet
On April 15, they sent a counter-
demonstrator with a CNN micro-
phone to a tea party rally in
Chicago. I believe the clip which
CNN played as news is on
YouTube.
The young lady who was the
counter-demonstrator argued
CNN's point that big government
and socialism is best and that
the person she argued with
should be happy that Illinois is
getting $50 billion of the new
money that the government is
printing.
I congratulate CNN for finally
demonstrating what most people
already knew. CNN is not a news
organization, but rather a spe-
cial-interest group that promotes
socialism and big government

Debt day
If you somehow managed to spend and
pre-spend every dollar of your salary
for the year by the end of April, money
you haven't even earned yet, would you be
able to fully fund your life for the rest of the
year? Maybe by racking up massive credit
cards debt? No way, you wouldn't even have
money to pay the minimum on the ever-in-
creasing balance. Somehow, however, that is
how it works with this administration.
April 26 is "Debt Day" for the fiscal year
2009. Debt Day is the day the government
starts paying for federal spending by bor-
rowing money rather than using its rev-
enue. This means that all of the money
spent from Washington the rest of this year
will either be borrowed from other coun-
tries or borrowed
from future genera-
S tions, in turn increas-
Sing our federal debt
, i dramatically.
S" Deficits are noth-
ing new in Washing-
tion and it is not a
S one-party disease.
Many of my con-
Rep. Ginny stituents from both
Brown-Waite parties were dis-
traught over Presi-
GUEST dent Bush's
COLUMN spending. More and
more of my con-
stituents are beginning to realize President
Obama's spending is much more reckless
than his predecessor's. However, the Amer-
ican people are facing a very tough eco-
nomic climate. Families and small
businesses are tightening.ftheir belts, mil-
lions ofAmerieans ha~e lost their jobs, and
retirement accounts are declining at an
alarming rate.
President Obama and my Democratic col-
leaguesyresponded to this fiscal crisis with
astonishing spending of taxpayers' dollars.
The stimulus package that passed in Feb-
ruary increased debt by $1 trillion. Using
the administration's own numbers, the Re-
publican alternative would have provided
twice as many jobs at half the cost. Instead,
Congress and the president saddled our
children and grandchildren with unfath-
omable new debt levels as the economy con-
tinues to sputter.
On top of this, the president proposed a
budget that will again dramatically increase
the amount of debt in America, According
to the Congressional Budget Office, the
president's budget will produce almost $10
trillion in deficits over the next 10 years.
The national debt will double in eight years,
and by 2012, the American people will be
paying $1 billion per day in net interest.
How is that possibly sustainable? It's not.
This money will have to be repaid either
through dramatically higher taxes and/or
currency devaluation.
Sadly, I fear the debt being racked up by
Congress and the administration will crip-
ple America's future. Our children and
grandchildren will be forced to bear an un-
precedented burden as a result of the De-
mocrats' policies.
The American people know that we can't
borrow and spend our way back to economic
health. The path to our economic recovery
starts with fiscal responsibility in Washing-
ton. I believe that the federal government
should follow the example set by our na-
tion's families - tighten the budget and elim-
inate unneeded and excessive spending. We
have to if we want our grandchildren's
America to look anything like ours.

;,: Associated Press
Russ Kurz, 77, carries up a bucket full of sand and gravel that he will use to demonstrate gold panning for a school group along
the American River on April 16 in Coloma, Calif. With the downturn in the economy, California's Sierra foothills have seen a rush
of new prospectors trying to strike it rich prospecting for gold.

Miners who locate an unclaimed area
can pay a $170 fee to the Bureau of Land
Management for access to the land. Most
claims are along the 120 miles of steep
granite outcrops and rushing riverbeds
that are part of California's Mother Lode,
a narrow band of gold-rich terrain.
When Don Wetter was in the Army, he
guarded Fort Knox in Kentucky, home of
the Treasury's Department's gold depos-
itory. Now that he's been discharged, Wet-
ter hopes to find some gold of his own
using a loan for a "grubstake," an old min-
ing term for money to sustain the search.
Wetter, a 22-year-old tree trimmer from
Troy, Mich., said he turned to gold be-
cause most of his customers lost their
jobs or moved away.
Many would-be gold planners are
drawn to the South Fork of the American
River, where the 1849 discovery of
nuggets at Sutter's Mill launched the
largest human migration in the Western
Hemisphere. The Depression brought
another wave of miners in the 1930s.
"It's hard to keep my equipment in stock,"
said Albert Fausel, the third-generation
owner of the nearby Old Placerville Hard-
ware store, which was founded to sell
sluices, picks and pans to the original'49ers.
Back then, the price of gold was $16 an
ounce. Today it hovers around $1,000.
The store's wood floors used to creak
under the weight of recreational rafters
and fisherman. Now prospectors are
some of the biggest shoppers.
Between October 2007 and September
2008, the Bureau of Land Management in
California issued gold miners 3,413 per-
mits, or claims, to search for gold on pub-
lic land. That figure compared with 1,986
claims in 2006. So far this fiscal year, the
agency has issued 1,444 claims.
Many miners believe that only 10 per-
cent of the gold in the Sierra Nevada was
discovered in the original gold rush.
They are also excited by the prospect of

stumbling onto buried treasure.
"A lady was walking over there, kicked
a stone with her toe and picked up a
nugget just like that," said Russ Kurz,
who at 77 with a bushy white beard looks
like a grizzled miner. He points to a sand-
bar on the American River near Coloma.
"I was walking my dog once and went to
pick up a rock and pulled a long nugget
straightoutofthe sand," he said. "Itwasworth
about $6,500- and thatwas 13 years ago."
Brent Shock of Jamestown now teaches
the newbies he calls "the bonanza people."
He says sandbars, cracks in bedrockand low-
pressure eddies behind boulders are prime
places to set up sluices, which are metal or
plastic channels designed to catch gold.
.The gold fields are becoming so popu-
lar that Todd Osborne has had to guard a
claim that has been in his family since
the 1960s near a remote mountain creek
A handmade sign with the image of a
rifle and the words "private claim" dis-
suades most intruders, but novices often


are unaware that miners can make a
stake on public land.
"A couple of years ago there'd be no-
body out here," said Osborne, 41, who
began prospecting full-time fast year
when his work as an arborist slowed.
Osborne, who says both of his grandfa-
thers turned to prospecting during the
Depression, knows the people who sold
supplies to miners are the ones who
stayed rich. One of the most notable ex-
amples is denim maker Levi Strauss.
Osborne owns the patent on the
Bazooka Gold Trap sluice that he builds
with his prospecting partner, Adam
Schiffner. The two can process up to 350
gallons ofstreambed gravel a day with it,
yielding $100 to $1,000 in gold flakes, with
an average of $150.
They are betting that the instability of the
dollar will drive gold prices even higher
and entice more people to his sluice.
"Whether they get rich or not," Osborne
said, "we've got part of their grubstake."

Reagan. Slattery feels that the sit-
uation we face today is much more
dangerous than the Great Depres-
sion years ago. We are involved in
two wars plus Pakistan. America's
standing in the world, he believes,
is at a low point.
There is a general feeling that
the government has failed us, that
there is a collapse of the formal fi-
nancial institutions. Despite this,
President Obama has responded
decisively on a broad front; that
President Obama has reached out
diplomatically to Islam and Rus-
sia, and feels that talking to Iran is
important. Slattery cautions that


we shouldn't get stuck in
Afghanistan or Pakistan. He gives
an "A" to President Obama in the
international area. However, he is
not as sure about the economy, as
we have to see what will happen.
He believes that the huge debt
that is being created is literally in-
tergenerational robbery.
He hopes that the decisive ac-
tion by President Obama on the
economy will make a difference
and we will come out of our finan-
cial problems relatively soon.
U.S. Rep. Allen Boyd, D-Fla.,
one of the leaders of the Demo-
cratic Blue Dog Coalition, also
serves on the House Budget and
Appropriations Committees. His
primary issue is the budget. He
said that under previous admin-
istrations we did not have an


honest budget.
We did not put all the expenses
and revenues on paper. However,
this new budget for the first time
in years puts everything down,
such as the cost of the wars,
Medicare, and the Alternative
Minimum Tax, plus including $75
billion for cleaning up disasters.
Congressman Boyd argues that
budgets in the past did not mean
anything. This budget isn't pretty,
but it lets us know what we are
dealing with. He believes that the
economy is in a freefall; it can't be
fixed overnight, and may take
years to fix. Boyd also pointed out
that health care cannot be ig-
nored. Forty-eight million Ameri-
cans today do not have access to
health care. This is approximately
15 percent of our population.


Fifteen to 16 percent of our
gross domestic product is going to
health care. President Obama
wants to create access to health
care, which Boyd feels is different
than universal health care. Boyd
pointed out that with 5 percent of
the world's population we con-
sume 25 percent of the world's en-
ergy. We have to find a new way to
produce energy.
U.S. Rep. Suzanne Kosmas, D-
Fla., said she agrees with Boyd's
assessment on the budget and
pointed out that Florida unem-
ployment is at an all-time high.
She hopes that the stimulus
package will create jobs, create
long-term investment and alter-
nate energy, and also help the
Florida education system, which
is hurting.


She pointed out that there is
$2.7 billion set aside for public ed-
ucation in Florida from the stim-
ulus package, but a waiver is
needed, as Florida is one of the
three states in the nation that did
not meet the 2006 spending for ed-
ucation criteria.
She told the students that the
federal government only provides
5 percent of funding for public
schools and the rest is up to the
state Legislature.

LETTERS to the Editor


Overextended
All the hype concerning the U.S.
bailout The stimulus package comes
with built in advantages and disadvan-
tages. Nowhere is anyone addressing
the cause of the current crisis. As a
matter of fact, is anyone interested?
There are too many unresolved issues
concerning our extremely complicated
economy.
The economy engine is affected by
many factors. This economic crisis is
cause for much concern, If we don't an-
alyze the basic fundamental cause of
the economic meltdown, you can't fix it
At the risk of sounding mundane, let
me say that the basic cause of the prob-
lem is extreme overuse of credit Exam-
ple: Years ago, Joe Consumer could buy a
new car and take three years to pay for it;
today some consumers can take five
years to pay for it Sounds appealing,
doesn't it? Let's take a look at Joe Con-
sumer, who with the five-year plan is pay-
ing for two cars, but he only owns one.
Years ago (in the '50s), interest paid by
banks on savings was 5 percent; today,
six decades later, the interest paid on
Joe Consumer's savings are a paltry 1
1/4 percent What's going on? The rich
get richerwhile the poor get poorer If
the banks are making so much money,
why then are.the banks struggling? It is
because the banks got caught up in their
own philosophy. In their greed, they
loaned to some consumers who could
not afford that house, car, vacation, etc.
Bottom line, many today are being
encouraged to bite off more than they
can chew. When you shop, use your
head as well as your eyes. When I was
young, in addition to my regular job, I
became a part-time salesman. As a
salesman I was told, motivated and in-
structed to sell to customers who did
not appear to be able to afford the
products, just so long as they had a
legal address.
Hence, the rich get richer and the
poor get poorer More importantly, this
dynamic of abuse of credit is suicide


for any economy, personal or national.

Whitewashing
I saw in the national news that
Hillary Clinton was trying to reduce
her multimillion dollar debt by raf-
fling off a date \% ith her husband Bill
Clinton. Take a chance for five bucks
and you can spend a date with Bill if
you will the lottery.'That's a great idea
...but wait, our local Eagle and Moose
lodges, plus the VFW Post, held lotter-
ies in the form of 50/50 drawings and
they were raided. Their money was
confiscated and the VFW was fined
two grand. This is really confusing. It
is OK for Hillary Clinton to raffle off a
date with Bill at five bucks a chance,
but decent American organizations
like the Moose, Eagles and VFW are
committing crimes for doing the same
thing. What's wrong with this picture?
I can't ask Gov. Charlie Crist about
this - I would just get the runaround.
I am president of a huge military his-
tory organization - about 7,500 mem-
bers - and I asked them to send their
e-mails of outrage to Gov. Crist when
our local organizations were raided.
Hundreds did and I forwarded dozens
more from members to Charlie Crist
Everyone got the same "robo-reply"
that Gov. Crist appreciates their e-
mail and he is looking into the matter,
and he gave a suggested contact at the
ABT. Can you spell whitewash? When
I and many members of my history or-
ganization e-mailed the ABT, we again
all received a "robo-reply" that the
agents did nothing wrong, that they
were "just following the law" and he,
whitewashed their actions. So once
again, can anyone tell me why it is
legal for Hillary Clinton to sell raffle
tickets for a date with Bill, yet it is il-


legal for great American organizations
to do exactly the same thing? Maybe it
is because Hillary will only be helping
Hillary while the Moose, Eagles, VFW
and others like them help the needy,
support their own local communities
and needy people. Maybe only the
government is allowed to help Ameri-
cans in need? Doesn't that just scare
the hell out of you?

Rule of the law
We like to think that we are a nation
that respects the law and human rights.
With the release of the torture memos,
we now know that not all of our officials
believe in the rule of the law.
Those who disregarded our ideals
and the law should be prosecuted to
the fullest extent of our laws.

A break
In today's Chronicle
there was a letter by a
Mr. John McFadden
about the Thornton inci-
dent. He mentioned how
high the hill was, how far
the sight distance was,
etc., and that's all very
good. Bottom line:
Thornton had no driver's
license. He had no busi-
ness behind the wheel.
Anything that occurred
after that was a crime,
and the parents of those
kids that got killed are
going to have to live with
the inequity of the jus-
tice system for the rest.
of their lives. Thornton
got a break he never
should have gotten.
Inspiring
To the person who
thinks the crosses and
flowers on the roadways
are a deterrent
and a hazard: I 0
must disagree.
You can say a
prayer for the
person who was
killed. Also, you
can thank God it
was not one of
your loved ones.
I find them very CAL
inspiring and I 563
think it's a won- 3
derful thing that
people can pray for them
as they drive. Have a
good day.
Tai chi, anyone?
Any other elderly
women out there who
would like to take tai chi?
I called the parks and
they canceled the one on
the west side of the
county because there's
Snot enough participa-
tion. Please, ladies, let's
get together and get
them to do- some at the
Westside Community
:Center. It's a great way
to relax and stretch with-
out having to do serious,
serious exercising. It's so
good for.you. Someone
else want to do it be-
sides me? Let's call the
Parks Department.
Sink a few
The maritime nations
of the world are going to
have to realize the pirate
situation isn't just going
to go away. I think I have
a solution: About 70
years ago, in the early
days of World War II, the
German navy used a
ship called "The Raider"
to intercept.and sink al-
lied shipping in the At-
lantic and Indian oceans.
It was a fast, well-armed
vessel disguised to look
like a freighter or a fish-
ing trawler, and could get
close to merchant ships
before they could escape
or sound the alarm. I be-
lieve you must fight fire
with fire, and if it would
take the combined effort
of all the maritime na-


I




(


tions to equip and man a
few of these gunboats,
I'm sure the movement
of mother ships - even
the ones made to look
like fishing boats -
could be monitored by
satellites. Sink a few of
these pirate ships ap-
proaching what they
think is easy prey, maybe
just enough to make
them think twice.
Patrol more
So let me get this
straight, crime has risen
in Citrus County because
people have become
more complacent? Give
me a break. This is typi-
cal of police today. It's
not the criminals' fault,
it's the victims' fault.
This reminds me of the
old commercial, "Lock
your car doors, don't
help a good kid go bad."
I've got news for
the police de-
)ND apartment. A
good.kid would
OFF never dream of
taking a car or
anything else
that doesn't be-
long to him.
S Here is one sta-
tistic for Sheriff
SDawsy: The
0579 presence of law
enforcement in
the neighbor-
hood deters crime. Start
patrolling more. You have
the cars and the man-
power - use them. To
prove my point on the
presence of law enforce-
ment, I guess you've no-
ticed that there's never
been a robbery at the
Subway in Homosassa.
Women and war
To the person who
called in about women
serving in the military
and in being in combat
areas: Women have
served in combat areas
for hundreds of years,
one way or another. For
the past 35 to 40 years,
women have screamed
for equal rights. Serving
in a combat zone under
combat conditions is as
equal as it gets.
Bins, boys
I would like to com-
ment on the new recy-
cling program that Citrus
Hills has instituted, $25
for 100 bags. I believe
they would get far more
cooperation on recycling
if they would do what is
done in other states and
issue each homeowner a
free recycling bin'. Then
you would get full coop-
eration.
Thrifty volunteers
If you've got nothing
to do ... now that the
snowbirds have gone
home, our thrift stores
are in desperate need of
(volunteers) to test and
price electronics and
things like that...

I am still not getting the
message.
Who is in charge of meas-
uring cow gas? Do you need
experience for that job?
How would you explain that
on your resume?
I recycle all of my plastics,
glass and newspapers. We
don't use fertilizer on our
lawn and we attempt to be


good stewards of the envi-
ronment. I even believe in
global warming.
But folks, I draw the line
when you tell me that we've
got to stop eating cheese-
burgers if we want to save
the planet
The theory is that cows
produce a lot of personal
gas. The calculations also in-
clude the amount of pollu-
tion that is created through
the production of cattle feed
and the transportation of the
beef to market.


According to the Scien-
tific American magazine,
cows produce 13 times more
pollution than your average
chicken. I have driven past
the chicken farm on 1-75 by
Bushnell and have a hard
time believing that any ani- /
mals produces less pollu-/
tion than chickens. /
Maybe Florida has above-
average chickens.
When's the last time you
drove past a cow and had to
roll up the window? It happens
all the time with chickens.


For the record, I will do
my "share to fight global
warming. But I will not give
up cheeseburgers. And be-
fore you trip up the growing
/momentum to have a
greener lifestyle, I would
suggest the Earth Day peo-
ple enjoy their chicken and
lettuce wraps and give up
the burger assault
Speaking of agricultural
issues, my good friend Jim
Hunter - now the official
county spokesman - has as-
sured me that the Chronicle


was wrong when we re-
ported that the county's can-.
ning center was. closed
down.
The county employee at
the canning center may
have been terminated and
the doors to the Lecanto
canning center may have
been locked, but the can-
ning center wasn't closed.
It was temporarily un-
available to the taxpayers.
I guess it all depends on
which side of the keyhole
you're looking through.


The good news is that the
county, has pledged to figure
out a way to reopen the can-
ning center and make it
available to those of us who
have a green thumb.
So keep your corn on the
cob and your peas in their
pods, canning is still in our
future.

ent of a lot of lumps in
Chronicle editorials during
her time on the commission,
my imagination couldn't
help but drift into fear that
literary assaults of the past
could be perceived as cause
for vigilante justice. I won-
dered: "Could this be a
warning?"
Surely, that's not the case.
Whatever the reason, I'm
going to feel more comfort-
able about the whole situa-
tion if I pay Joyce Valentino
a compliment. Through all
the barbs and jabs from edi-
torials and some columns,
as commission chairwoman
Joyce Valentino made a
point of appearing monthly
at our editorial board meet-
ings.
She may have wanted to
strangle us, but come Hades
or high water, she was there,
along with the county ad-
ministrator.


During the present in-
terim period between
county administrators, dia-
logue between county gov-
ernment officials and the
editorial board has dissi-
pated. That's unfortunate,
because this is a critical
time for communication.
One official who used to
take a lot of lumps from the
Chronicle is Inverness City
Manager Frank DiGiovanni.
These days, his critics likely
feel he gets too much praise
from the newspaper.
His trick?
Communicating!
For several years now
he's visited with the edito-
rial board once a month.
While I'm sure he, too, has
wanted to strangle us, the
eight or so editorial board
members and he sit
around, discuss issues of
concern and the result -
agree or disagree - is that
we see where he's coming
from.
With that, I'm going to use
one of Mr. DiGiovanni's ob-
servations about the current


happenings in county gov-
ernment.
, Speaking in general terms
about who's behind staffing
cuts and the apparent cre-
ation of a new, lesser posi-
tion for Development
Services Director Gary
Maidhof- at a time when
we have an interim admin-
istrator who's not seeking
the top job (and during a
time when other positions
are being whacked) - he
said, "Something isn't con-
nected. I don't know that
you're ever going to get to
the truth. Something isn't
adding up."
After he'left the meeting,
speculative thoughts about
what's behind these
changes were shared.
One thought was that In-
terim Administrator Eber
Brown is the fall guy, cutting
positions now so whoever
gets the job doesn't have ter-
minations as his or her first
order of business.
Another thought is that
commissioners are flexing.
their muscle behind the


scenes during this interim
period.
Yet another thought is
that now-ex-administrator
Anthony Schembri had a
plan in mind that is now
being carried out
No one disputed that the
tight budget necessitates
cost-cutting measures, al-
though one does wonder
why the 18 terminated re-
cently couldn't have been
given more than two weeks'
severance or been given a
few more weeks on the job,
since their positions are
funded in the current
budget and the new budget
has yet to take shape.
We're able to report about
the changes in government,
but how these actions have
come to be remains a mys-
tery. I'll bet granny Ava Es-
telle could get to the bottom
of it.

COMMENTARY








CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE

Muddy situation
... Who decided to spend
over $30,000 for a boat
ramp built for airboats over
the dam on Turner Camp
Road? There isn't any water,
just mud on both sides. No
water for several years now.
Assistance idea
I believe this country
would be a better place if
we enacted a law such as
the following: Anyone who
did not complete 12 years
of taxpayer-funded school-
ing with a passing grade
would forever be denied any
kind of public assistance. If
they could not make the ef-
fort and put in the time to
learn a work ethic and a
marketable skill, they
should not be allowed to live
off their neighbors who did
work hard to get those
skills.
Armadillo actions
All these experts that
write in and tell you how to
get rid of armadillos, really
haven't done much research
or don't know much about
armadillos. The latest com-
ment was that if you kill off
all the grubs, that will get
rid of the armadillos. The
armadillos will keep digging
until they find grubs and
after they've dug up a
tremendous amount of lawn
and there's none there, they
.will leave. But just because
There's none in your yard
doesn't mean they're not
going to try to dig and find
them. The way that I've had
the best success is with live
traps, trapping them. They
like fresh fruits and some
.vegetables. Find their path
-and stake your trap out and
get a live trap and set them
-in. That's the only way I've


COMMENTARY


everbeen successful in get-
ting rid of armadillos. All
these other means that
they've come up with, just
doesn't work. They will dig
holes because they hide at
night if they're under inva-
sion by another animal. But
during the daybreak, they'll
go back to their basic den
where they came from.
Consider all facts
The person who continues
to complain about the long
sentence the 16-year-old got
for stealing beer keeps for-
getting to mention the 16-
year-old boy picked up a
gun while committing the
crime. In doing so, he gave


himself a manda- u
tory sentence as
required by the
Florida State Law
10-20-LIFE. It had
nothing to do with
Citrus County jus-
tice. He chose to
pick up the gun; he CAL
chose the length of
time he would 563-
spend in jail.
Are you kidding?
To the person who says
taxes on cigarettes are taxes
on the poorest people: I say
you have got to be kidding.
The poor need shelter and
clothing and food to survive.
Cigarettes are not included


0579


SUNDAY, APRIL 26, 2009 CS


jn the basic neces-
sities of life. Ciga-
rettes are a luxury.
The poor are not
being taxed. It's a
luxury tax on an ex-
travagant, self-in-
dulgent product.
And, yes, he could
also apply the tax
to alcohol and ice
cream.


Using up benefits
Regarding the article in
today's paper on unemploy-
ment decline: The reason
for this decline is that peo-
ple are using up their unem-
ployment benefits. I, for
one, will be off unemploy-


ment in two weeks, not be-
cause I found a job, but be-
cause it will not be
extended.
Signal, please
Please, sheriff, ask your
patrol cars to use their turn
signals. We have enough
problems to guess what the
pickup trucks are going to
do next.
Muck men
I want to thank the gen-
tleman and his son for
pulling me out of the muck
at the end of Mason Creek.
It was Saturday, April 18.
The day was beautiful, the
tide was out and I wanted


to pick up shells and I de-
cided to walk along the
beach and I got too close to
the muck and it sucked me
in. I was up to my knees for
about two hours. I got my
one leg out and couldn't get
Sthe other out. The gentle-
man had to use his boat
and it took him 15 minutes
to a half hour to get me
out. I tried to give him
money and he wouldn't
take it and they were really
great guys and I want to
thank them again. I'm old,
but I'm not ready to die.
Thank you again, guys.'
Kind concern
During the day on Satur-
day, April 18, my wife and I
were on a motorcycle on
(County Road) 486 near An-
napolis in Citrus Hills. When
my wife told me she was
cold, we stopped to get her
jacket from the motorcycle
compartment. A gentleman
in a blue minivan stopped
and asked if we needed as-
sistance. This is what this
area is all about; people car-
-ing about other people. We
wish to thank this fine gen-
tleman for his kind concern.
May God bless him.
Consider cuts
Instead of laying off
more hardworking Citrus
County employees, it would
be honorable for our county
commissioners to take a
cut in pay. Remember,
these are only part-time po-
sitions. Many of the com-
missioners are also
business owners.
Who's there again?
Somebody called in and
said all their phone conver-
sations were listened in on.
Listened in on by whom,
and how do you know?

Employed and overworked


ELAINE THOMPSON/Assodtd Press
Dan Prltchett, vice president of Marketing & Business Development for Logos Bible Software, stands behind a pair of computer monitors as
he works recently in his cluttered office In Belllngham, Wash. "hthr It M sans staying late at the office or working from home, we are
doing what it takes to pull together and work hard to keep ahead I this economy," Pritchett said.

Stressed-out employees cope with changes in the workplace


MEGAN K. SCOTT
Associated Press


NEW YORK -
Sure, you're grateful that you
still have a job.
But you're also feeling over-
worked, stressed out and anx-
ious about the future. Here's
what to do to keep your job and
your sanity:

Demonstrate your
added value
Ask yourself, "How do I con-
tribute to the company's bottom
line?" said Connie Podesta, au-
thor of "How To Be The Person
Successful Companies Fight To
Keep."
"How you respond says a lot
about how your company sees
you," said Podesta. "If you say,.
'I'm just a receptionist,' why


would your company see you dif-
ferently?','
Podesta said now is the time to
come up with ideas and action
plans that are tied to the finan-
cial stability and growth of the
company.
Be sure to blow your own horn,
she said. Some companies are so
big, your hard work could go un-
noticed.

Network inside the
company
The person making future lay-
off decisions may not be your im-
mediate manager, said Brad
Karsh ofJobBound.com.
To him or her, you may simply
be a name on a sheet of paper, he
said. Or that senior person may
have met you once and it was a
day you weren't looking your
best, he said.


Karsh suggests volunteering to
work on a project with someone
high up, or adjusting your day so
you can run into that person on
a regular basis.
"If you happen to know that
senior VE that could be the dif-
ference in you staying or going,"
he said.

Look for leadership
opportunities
That doesn't necessarily mean
asking the boss for a promotion,
said Podesta.
"A leader, regardless of'a title,
is someone others would notice,"
she said. '"I like their attitude. I
like their efficiency. I'd like to
learn from that person."'
Companies are really looking
for people who shine, said
Podesta. Show them that you are
a proactive, energized person


VEDC hopes to connect local vet-owned

businesses with government contracts


he Veterans Economic De-
velopment Council
(VEDC), under the auspice
ofAinerican Legion Post 155 is up
and ruruning The VEDC has se-
cured office space in the County
Resource Center thanks to the
diligent efforts of Citrus County
Commissioner Dennis Damato,
Cathy Pearson and J.J. Kenney

The mission


Bernie Leven
GUEST


The prime mission of the COL
VEDC is to create jobs through
government contracting to small
businesses that are already located in Citrus
County. The federal government contracts
distributed billions of dollars to small busi-
nesses last year. That included all types of
small businesses.

Functions
We do not do resumes, business plans or
job training. We do not pursue companies to
locate in Citrus County. There are other
agencies that are funded to do these func-
tions. Our objective is to secure a portion of
available federal monies for Citrus County
businesses and workers.

How it works
The program takes advantage of Public
Law 106-50, enforced by Executive Order


UMN


13360, which enables Disabled
American Veterans (DAV) busi-
nesses to receive a 3 percent set
aside of all government agency
contracts. This amounts to bil-
lions of dollars annually In ad-
dition, thanks to the efforts of
State Representative Charlie
Dean, DAV-owned businesses
now have a priority in obtaining
state contracts.

Non-veteran
owned business


The law also states that a DAV contrac-
tor may team with other small businesses.
The DAV contractor must perform a mini-
mum of 15 percent of all construction con-
tracts, and 51 percent of all service
contracts issued. This opens the door for
non-veteran owned businesses to com-
plete the remaining 85 percent of all con-
struction contracts, and the remaining 49
percent of all service contracts.

Phase one:
Recruiting
The VEDC is now in the recruiting stage
of our program. All veteran- and DAV-
owned businesses are urged to register by
calling the VEDC office. The VEDC staff

See VEDC/Page D4


who comes up with ideas that
will take them to new levels, she
said.

Be prepared
Don't wait until you are out of
work to update your resume,
said Deborah Brown-Volkman, a
career coach in East Moriches,
N.Y. Losing a job is a blow to
your self-confidence and you
may not be able to see your ac-
complishments clearly.
The first thing a future em-
ployer is going to ask you for is a
resume, she added.
Start networking online and
offline, said Karsh. Join the pro-
fessional organization or trade
association for your industry;
use LinkedIn and Facebook
"You don't have to be proac-
tively looking unless you know

Bruce Williams
SMART
MONEY


Can't


escape


the


taxes
DEAR BRUCE: My
son and I are in the
process of selling a
rental townhouse. I as-
sume that we will be pay-
ing taxes on the .gain. I
heard there are ways we
can avoid such taxes. I
have called several insti-
tutions, that have no
knowledge of how it can
be done. - Reader,.via e-
mail
DEAR READER: I don't
know of any direct method
to avoid the taxes. You
can, of course, reinvest
the money under the like
kind and exchange rule,
and thereby postpone
paying the taxes. The op-
erative term here is "post-
pone." When that
property is sold, the tax-
man will get his due.
Given the information
that you have provided, I
know of no other way for
you to avoid the taxes. Be
glad that you made- a
profit; it could have been
a loss.
DEAR BRUCE: Every-
where I turn they are ad-
vertising will kits. I can't
afford an attorney to write
up my will. Will I be se-
cure in getting a will kit
and doing it myself? -
PK. Kentucky
DEAR IK:. I guess I
need to say it one more
time: Spend the money to
hire an attorney. If your
estate is simple, it won't
cost that much. It's very
possible if you use one of
these kits that your will
would be valid. However,
it's also possible that it
won't, andthe only way to
find out it is not valid is
after your death, and it's
too late to make the cor-
rection then. You work
hard for what you have
and you would like the
people of your choice to
get the things that you
have allocated to them in
your will.
DEAR BRUCE: I have a
very close friend who has
been very kind to me. In
fact, she's been a better
friend to me than my fam-
ily members. I would like
to leave her something in
my will, but my husband
says that only relatives
can be named as benefici-
aries. Is this true? -
Sharon, via e-mail
DEAR SHARON: This
couldn't be further from
the truth. In some states,
the minimum amount that
you are obliged to leave to
anyone is your spouse,
and that's a third of your
estate. With the remain-
der, you can do with and
leave to whomever you
want. There is no prohibi-
tion from remembering
someone's kindnesses in
your will. Just make sure
you have a competent at-
torney draw up your will
so that all the "I"'s are dot-
ted and "T"'s crossed, this
way your wishes will be
carried out.
DEAR BRUCE: My
daughter, 25, has started
selling items at craft
shows. Her challenge is
the financial resource
needed to purchase the
items initially for resale
later. I am contemplating
investing in this in one of
two ways. I would either
lend her the money as a
loan, which she will repay

EMPLOYED
Continued from Page D1
your company is in really
big trouble," said Karsh..
"You should be prepared to
look."

Recognize that
times are tough
A company that is posting
quarterly losses is probably
not going to have the re-
sources to give you a raise,
said Michael Barr of The
Chicago School of Profes-,
sional Psychology.
Asking for one under
those circumstances would
show the bosses that you
don't know much about
business, he said.
However, he said if the
organization is doing "fairly
decently" and you can
demonstrate why you de-
serve a raise, it doesn't
hurt.
Don't use working extra
hours as justification. He
suggests making a business
case, finding salary infor-
mation for people with
equivalent backgrounds
doing similar jobs at simi-
lar companies to show you
are underpaid.

Work smarter, not
necessarily harder
Companies don't neces-
sarily fire slackers first,
said Barr. They are often
looking to cut positions
rather than people.
If you are feeling over-
worked, collaborate with
your supervisor to make
your duties more manage-
able. Perhaps there are


Therapy attended a two-day
course "Ezamination and Inter-
vention for the Lumbo-pelvic
Complex." Joshua Hayes, PT,
DPT, OCS, adjunct professor
for Winston-Salem State Uni-
versity was the instructor. He
completed his Doctor of Physi-
cal Therapy with a focus on
manual therapy and the lumbo-
pelvic complex.
Nottage reviewed functional
lumbo-pelvic complex anatomy
and its relation to sacroiliac
and lumbar dysfunction and
learned comprehensive evalu-
ation techniques.


Costs
There is not, or ever will be, a
charge to participate in the VEDC
program. The VEDC will operate
solely on donations and grants, and
will never charge a participating busi-
ness, or individual, a fee for the serv-
ices they provide.

How you can help
This program is a win-win situation
for the veterans, small businesses,
workers and residents of Citrus County.
The VEDC is also seeking volunteers to
assist in the current office functions. A
few hours a week would be very help-
ful at this time. We strongly urge all
business owners, whether they are
DAV-owned, veteran-owned or inde-
pendently owned to call today.

things you are doing that
are not adding value to the
organization, he said.
Be strategic about taking
on extra work
"If you are going to work
harder, do something that's
going to have an impact on
your career," he said.

Embrace change
Don't take change per-
sonally. Most companies
are not downsizing, restruc-
turing, or changing their
business models to make
your life miserable, said
Podesta.
They are trying to survive
and remain viable, which
means you will have a job,
she said. If your company
isn't changing, it may be out
of business in five years.
"This is not the time to
complain about change,"
she said. "This is the time
to say, 'Bring it on.'"

Remain positive
A bad attitude is one of
the top reasons a manager
lets someone go, said brand
marketing expert Robin
Fisher Roffer, author of
"The Fearless Fish Out of
Water: How to Succeed
When You're the Only One
Like You."
Pitch in, said Karsh. Don't
complain loudly, spread ru-
mors about layoffs, or con-
tribute to office politics. ,
Believe in what you can
do and what the company
can do, said Roffer.
"When the recession is
over, you're going to be seen
as a positive force, someone
who can be counted onto
rise to the occasion," she
said.

MONEY
Continued from Page D1
in installments until she
has enough capital to make
the purchases herself, or
put up the money for the
inventory each time, four
or five times a year, and
then take a percentage of
her take. Her investment is
the booth and rental time.
We are estimating that she
will make between $1,000
and $2,500. I thought 10
percent would be a good
percentage - S.W., via e-
mail
DEAR S.W.: Since the
amount of money is so
modest, a straight loan to
your daughter, under what-
ever terms you two agree
on, would be the easiest
and cleanest way to handle
this. You might wish to
make it open-ended and
assuming that your daugh-
ter is a responsible person,
that should work for both
of you. I would not get in-
volved in a percentage
deal.
DEAR BRUCE: I backed
out in my car and hit a lady
who was parked across the
street. I know that I am
wrong. I offered to have the
car fixed at my body shop.
They estimated the most it
would be was $400. She
agreed to get it done there.
Then all of a sudden she
decided to get two other es-
timates and they wanted
$700 and $1,100. Now she
says that she wants me to
pay her in cash the highest
amount. I told her that I
would settle and I would
take care of this myself as I
did not want to make a
claim against my insurance
company. She demands to
know my insurance com-
pany's name. Do I have to
give it to her? - Reader,
via e-mail
DEAR READER: You
are not obliged to tell her
about your insurance. You
must understand that you
have no-obligation to pay
her anything until such
time as a court of proper
jurisdiction orders you to
pay and then they would
set the number. When
someone is without ques-
tion, wrong, you make a


settlement but when the
other side gets unreason-
able and demands that you
pay the higher amount you
simply say you will pay this
amount or she will have to
go to court and have a
judge order that you pay
more.
The likelihood is that for
this kind of money she is
not going to make a trip to
court. The very basic un-
derstanding that you must

have is that until such time
as a court orders a pay-

The reality is though that
when you know you are
wrong, why go through all

I


Some flowers can be



treats for taste buds


Edible landscaping is one of the old-
est forms of gardening and incorpo-
rates the desire for fresh fruits and
vegetables into a beautiful de-
sign that accentuates the home. I
While fruit and vegetables are
edible crops frequently used in
the landscape, don't overlook
the culinary value of flowers.
The use of flowers dates back .-
thousands of years to the Chi-
nese, Greeks and Romans. Re- -
cently, there has been a
resurgence of interest in edible Joan Bi
flowers for their taste, color, FLOI
and fragrance. FRIE
Edible flowers can be used
fresh as a garnish or as an inte- LI
gral part of a dish, such as a
salad. Squash flowers can be fried in light
batter or cornmeal. Some flowers can be
stuffed or used in stir-fry dishes. Edible
flowers can be candied; frozen in ice
cubes and added to beverages; made into
jellies and jams; used to make teas or
wines; or minced and added to cheese
spreads, herbal butters, pancakes, crepes,
and waffles. Many flowers can be used to
make vinegars for cooking, marinades, or


I
r

J


dressings for salad. Herbal flowers nor-
mally have the same flavor as their leaves,
with the exceptions of chamomile and
lavender blossoms, where the
flavor is usually more subtle.
Before rushing out and nib-
bling on your flower bed, exer-
cise caution, as not all flowers
are edible. Some flowers may
S taste bad and some may be poi-
sonous. Eat flowers only if you
are certain they are edible.
Keep in mind that a flower is
adshaw not necessarily edible because
EDA- it is served with food.
NDLY A partial list of flowers that
are considered to be edible in-
ING cludes apple, arugula, basil,
calendula, chamomile, chives,
chrysanthemum, dill, elderberry, hibiscus,
lavender, lemon, marigold, mint, nastur-
tium, okra, orange, pansy, passion flower,
rose, strawberry, water lily and yucca. The
flowers of most culinary herbs are safe to
use. Remember to eat only flowers that
you are positive are edible. If in doubt,
don't eat it.

Background information about family's heirloom platter


Dear John: First let me say I
enjoy your column and look
forward to each article as do
many others I know. I was fortunate
enough to have inherited
this beautiful platter with
its own story, photo en-
closed. It is said to have
been part of my great-
great-grandmother's
trousseau when she came .
to the United States to
marry my ancestor in the
early 1890s. Is that possi- '
ble? J
It is 16 1/2 inches by 13 J
and has a very distinctive SIlKO
diamond mark on the AT
back What can you tell
me about its age, and
though I would not part with it, per-
haps its worth? I hope to keep pass-
ing it on in the family. - R.R.,
Internet
DearRR.: Wow, what a wonderful
family heirloom. Your platter is in
the Orientalist style with its lotus
pod and flower hand-colored, trans-
fer printed decoration and design.


'i


The platter was produced in the
Staffordshire district of England.
I am glad you sent good, clear pho-
tographs of the back stamp. The dia-
mond shape mark on the
Back is an English Reg-
istry Mark The Roman
S numeral 4 at the top indi-
cates ceramic category,
S the number 20 just below
S is the day of the month,
Sg the letter K is the date let-
ter for 1883 and the G at
the bottom is for Febru-
ary. The design was regis-
ikorski tered February 20, 1883.
ISKI'S Therefore the story can
TIC be true. Current potential
dollar value is $150 to
$300.
Dear John: I have two things I am
interested in finding out the value of
because I would like to sell them.
Can you help me? One is a bedroom
set I received as a child in 1950. It is
a vanity with bench and a chest of
drawers. It is solid maple, but it does
need refinishing. It has metal drawer
pulls. I can send you a picture.


The second thing is a set of blue
Currier and Ives dishes. It is an
eight-place setting plus some extra
plates and bowls to make nine or 10
of some sizes. It includes a complete
set of serving dishes and butter, salt
and pepper etc. - C., Internet
Dear C.: If the bedroom set is
Modernist in style it would be nec-
essary to see photographs of the set.
If the set is traditional in style, it
would be better kept rather than
sold. Without photographs, that is all
I can say
Currier and Ives lithograph prints
are of specific collector interest.
The company was in business from
1857 to 1907. The dinnerware with
transfer printed Currier and Ives
scenes has nothing to do with the
See. . Page E8
This platter bears an English reg-
istry mark and was produced in the
Staffordshire district of England,
possibly some time in the 1890s.
It might be worth between
$150 and $300.

Dear John: I am in possession of a
studio black and white photo of Char-
lie Chaplin, which is autographed by
him. It is signed "Yours truly, Charlie
Chaplin." It is presumably a 5 by 7 inch
photo from what we can see, but it is
matted. It has been museum mounted,
and is behind glass, in a black wooden
frame. I am pretty sure that it is from
the 1920s. What would be the potential
dollar value of it? I saw similar auto-
graphed Charlie Chaplin memorabilia
for $500 to $10,000 on eBay. I put it up
for $800 on eBay with no luck Thanks,
I look forward to hearing from you. -

Spring is time for cleaning


STEVEN SENNE/Associated Press
Professional organizer Standolyn Robertson, of Waltham,
Mass., center, speaks recently with client Fern Reiss, of
Newton, Mass., left, as they sort through piles of books at
Reiss' Newton home.


Tips for
clearing out

the clutter
MEGAN K. SCOTT
Associated Press
NEW YORK
Tosg, reuse, sell, recy-
cle. When it comes to
getting rid of stuff,
knowing what to throw out
is only part of the equation.
You also have to figure out
what to do with it
Here's a guide to getting
rid of the things you don't
use, need or even want:
Books
If books are overcrowd-
ing shelf or basket space,
it's time to reassess; said
certified professional or-
ganizer Erica Ecker, owner
of organizing company The
Specialist in New York City
Did the book change your
. life? Do you get nostalgic
when you see the binding?
Out-of-date paperbacks
can go into the mixed
paper bin at the recycling
center or at curbside if the
city or county picks up
paper, Ecker said.
Sell newer books on sites
like Amazon.com or
Half.com, an eBay com-
pany with fixed prices and
no listing fees.
If the book is auto-


graphed, a first edition or
was written by a high pro-
file author who has passed
away, consider listing it on
eBay, said Marsha Collier,
author of "eBay for Dum-
mies." (Starting in May,
Half.com sellers can
choose to have their list-
ings show up on.eBay prod-
uct pages at no extra cost)
You can also donate books
to a charity, such as an or-
ganization that promotes lit-
eracy, or take them to an
independentbookseller for
money or credit, said Stan-
dolyn Robertson, president
of the National Association
of Professional Organizers.
Camr
Do you need cash from
the car for another pur-
chase or expense? While
donating a car comes with
tax benefits, you won't see
them until the following tax
season, said Mark Scott,
spokesman for Auto-
Trader.com.
President Barack Obama
recently announced his
support of a plan to give
vouchers to people who
turn in old gas-guzzlers and
buy vehicles that get good
gas mileage.
Donate the car if it is a
clunker or your goal is sim-
ply to get it out of the drive-
way. Most charities that
accept car donations will
pick them up within days of
your call, Scott said.

WE WOULD LIKE TO HELP YOUR BOTTOM LINE!

Call us for a free market analysis or a chat about the market.


If you're donating your
car, make sure you keep a
good record of its condition
and any evidence you can
find for its market value,
Scott said. If you get au-
dited, the Internal Rev-
enue Service is going to
want you to prove you
didn't inflate the value for
the bigger tax break, he
said.
Clothes
Get rid of clothes that are
too small, especially if you
haven't been able to wear
them for more than a year,
said Yahoo! Shine's fashion
and beauty editor, Jennifer
Romolini.
"Your wardrobe needs to
be about practicality, not
hope," she said.
But if you think you will
drop the weight -if it's
pregnancy weight, for ex-
ample - Ecker suggests
keeping a limited amount
of the smaller clothes you
love and would wear again,
even if it's in a year.
If you're not sure
whether to keep something,
enlist the help of a friend
who knows you well and
will give you her honest
opinion, said Anne-Marie


O'Neill, deputy editor of
Real Simple.
Do not donate clothes
that are unwearable, Ro-
molini said.
"If something has a tiny
tear or button missing,
that's one thing; if a piece
is practically torn in two or
forever-stained, throw it in
the trash."
For consignment, most
shops only take high-end
pieces that are in excellent
condition, Romolini said.
While some take lesser
quality clothing, it might
not be worth the time. She
once received $11 for an
entire bag of clothes, which
barely covered her trans-
portation to the store.
Designer/name brand
and new or barely worn
items will fetch the highest
bids on eBay, Romolini
said.
Be honest about the con-
dition, be descriptive about
the color, size and fabric
and make sure you spell
the designer's name cor-
rectly, says Collier. Include
photos.
While people sell clothes
on Craigslist, Romolini says

process.
Short sales allow the cash-strapped seller
to repay the mortgage at the price that the
home sells for, even though it is lower than
what is owed on the property. With plum-
meting property values, this can save many
people from foreclosure and even bank-
ruptcy. More and more lenders are willing to
consider short sales because they are much
less costly than foreclosures.
In the Citrus County area, more than
700 homes are in danger of foreclosing. It


is happening in all price ranges. Local ex-
perts say that even high-
priced homes are not
immune. Call Broom at
795-2441.

Continued from Page E12

Protect the soil and root
zone with a few inches of
top mulch like pine needles
or natural leaf litter. Never
top dress with heat absorb-
ing, reflecting and radiating
dark rock or alkaline lime
rock around plants. Plants
may barely survive but
never thrive in such foreign
environments.
A little saucer or berm of
soil beyond the root ball will
contain water and direct ir-
rigation to the roots. A one-
half-inch micro irrigation
line with individual drip
emitters directly onto the
roots and regulated by a bat-
tery operated timer is an
ideal, laborsaving system
for newly planted beds.
A brown one-half gallon
per hour dripper is fine for


a plant from a 6-inch pot; a
black 1 gph for a bigger
grass or plant; a green 2 gph
for a pruned shrub from a
10-inch pot; and two emit-
ters at 2 gph or a black, ad-
justable 0 to 10 gph for
bigger trees grown in 14-
inch, No. 7 pots or larger.
Excellent, free booklets are
available in the plumbing
aisle of home improvement
stores.
Once plants are carefully
installed in good, rich soil,
flood the soil daily for the
first week in early evening.
The soil will stay moist
overnight and maybe until
noonish the next day. If the
plant shows signs of wilting,
mist the foliage during the
heat of the day You could
possibly shade the plant for
a few days with cut saw pal-

to reduce transpiration in a
hot situation.
After the first week, water
every other day for at least
two more weeks so the plant


can adapt to less frequent
watering and start to extend
new roots out into the
amended soil. Reset the
simple, battery-operated
timer as needed. Water
every third day for three
weeks, then twice a week for
a month. Wean two and a
half months for most plants


grown in 10-inch pots. It may
take up to a year for large
trees and mature palms to
become established. When
rains come in summer,
check to be sure the new
plants have enough water.
Wilting is a sure sign you
need to provide more water
and care to your new plants.

sional gardener and nurs-
ery owner She welcomes

to think twice.
"Do you really want a parade of peo-
pie coming through your house, de-
ciding whether or not they want what
you're selling?" she asked.
Electronics
Get rid of an old gadget or appliance
as soon you get a new one, said
Christopher Null, Yahoo! Tech colum-
nist. He said gadgets and tech prod-
ucts lose value quickly, so the longer
you wait, the more worthless they get.
Check eBay to see if the gadget is
worth something. Make sure to look at
actual sales, not listings with initial
prices that didn't get any bids, he said.
"You'll usually get a better price on
eBay rather than trying to sell it in a
more limited venue, like Craigslist,"
he said.
If you can't sell it, consider donating
or recycling it. Staples recycles used
computers, monitors, desktop printers
and fax machines even if the item was-
n't purchased there. There is a recy-
cling fee of $10 per large item.
GreenDisk (www.greendisk.com) ac-
cepts everything from cell phones to
laptop computers to iPods. Pack items


in your own box, print a label from the
site and ship. The cost for disposal of
up to 20 pounds is $6.95. GreenDisk
will also send you a collection box and
pick it up for an additional charge.
Entertainment
Check with your local library to see
if it wants old VHS tapes, said Vicki
Norris of Vicki Norris' Restoring
Order in Portland, Ore.
"Let the cassette tapes go unless you
have a tape player in your car, and can
and will listen to them while you're
commuting," she said. If you're not
sure, give yourself a month to "use
them or lose them."
Some game retailers like GameStop
will buy games for more recent video
consoles like Wii and Xbox 360, ac-
cording to Chris Kohler, Wired.com's

usually to control the height and the
spread of a tree. Actually, topping has
the opposite effect. The resulting
spurts (often called water sprouts) are
far more numerous than normal new
growth.
This new growth develops so rapidly
that the tree grows back to its normal


size or bigger, with a far denser crown.
There are other alternative methods to
reduce the size of tree without topping
