Volunteers spruce up Chassahowitzka River


Tarpon Springs diving group offers

assistance in cleanup project


TAYLOR PROVOST
Chronicle
Volunteers of all ages met Sun-
day at the Chassahowitzka Boat
Ramp to clean the shoreline and
river bed as part of the annual
shoreline cleanup week
Members of SCUBAnaut, Boy
Scout Troop 302 from Inverness
and volunteers from the Florida
Water Management District and
Citrus County Parks and Recre-
ation arrived at 9 a.m. with div-
ing equipment, canoes and


kayaks to pick up trash and de-
bris from the river's banks.
"It's a beautiful river and we
want to keep it beautiful," said
Regina Epple, wife of Scoutmas-
ter Steve Epple. About 13 scouts
and five adults canoed along a
half-mile stretch of the river,
picking up trash as they went.
They then sorted the trash to be
taken to the county landfill.
The Tarpon Springs chapter of
SCUBAnauts brought 30 kids
and adults to assist in the clean-
up from under the water. The


dive was also a chance for the
SCUBAnauts to learn about the
river's ecosystem as part of their
training.

Passport rule goes

into effect today
Associated Press
BLAINE, Wash. - New rules re-
quiring passports or new high-tech
documents to cross the United
States' northern and southern bor-
ders are taking effect today, as
some rue the tightening of security
and others hail it as long overdue.
The rules are being imple-
mented nearly eight years after
the Sept 11 attacks and long after
the 9/11 Commission recom-
mended the changes. They were
delayed by complaints'from state
officials who worried the restric-
tions would hinder the flow of peo-
ple and commerce and affect
border towns dependent on inter-
national crossings.
In 2001 a driver's license and an
oral' declaration of citizenship
were enough to cross the Cana-
dian and Mexican borders; today's
changes are the last step in a grad-
ual ratcheting up ofthe rules. Now
thousands of Americans are
preparing by applying for pass-
ports or obtaining special driver's
licenses that can also be used to
cross the border.
In one Texas border community,
long lines were reported at a local
courthouse as people rushed to
apply for the required documents.
But it remains to be seen if the
new requirement will cause traffic
backups at points of entry and
headaches for people unaware of
the looming change.
U.S. Customs and Border Pro-
tection officials say they're confi-
dent the transition will be smooth.

Online poll
Do you agree with the new law
that allows police to stop and
ticket motorists solely for
S@ not wearing seatbelts?
A. Yes. The new law
will cut down on in-
juries and insurance
claims.
B. No. If motorcyclists don't
have to wear helmets, why
should seatbelts be mandatory?
C. Yes. The increased ability to
stop people will result in in-
creased arrests for criminal ac-
tivity.
D. [No. It treads on civil liberties.

Disaster volunteers to train


Reception Center exercise drillJune 17


Special to the Chronicle


Volunteers who want to respond
and assist during disaster events are
invited to a Volunteer Reception
Center drill training from 9 a.m. to 3
p.m. Wednesday, June 17, at the Cit-
rus County Resource Center in
Lecanto.
The training exercise is being co-
ordinated by the Homeland Security
Volunteer Team of Citrus County
and is sponsored by the RSVP pro-
gram (Retired and Senior Volunteer
Program) of the Nature Coast Volun-
teer Center
The Nature Coast Volunteer Cen-


ter, which is the lead agency for vol-
unteers and donations in Citrus
County emergency activations, hosts
the drill annually to prepare for any
type of disaster - natural or man-
made - which might require the
use of volunteers.
According to the statewide organ-
ization, Volunteer Florida, "As surely
as disasters happen, volunteers will
come. Tens of thousands of volun-
teers with no disaster training or ex-
perience have been referred by
volunteer centers or Disaster Volun-
teer Reception Centers to provide a
variety of disaster services. Coordi-
nation between volunteer centers


and community organizations before
a disaster prepares the region for
the impacts of the event and enables
agencies to effectively utilize spon-
taneous volunteers in the relief ef-
fort."
At the opening of this training ses-
sion, all participants will be briefed
on the different roles that volunteers
may serve in a real local disaster.
Then a simulated disaster scenario,
usually weather related, sets in mo-
tion the role-play activity where
"spontaneous" volunteers go
through the processing procedure.
All participants will receive a cer-
tificate of attendance and have the
option of registering with the Volun-
teer Center so they may be/called
upon to serve in a real disaster acti-

BRIAN LaPETER/Chronicle
Mito the police dog is now retired and living with Deputy Jim Davis, after recovering from a knife wound the
dog suffered during an incident in March.


K-9 wounded in action joins family of Citrus County deputy


TAYLOR PROVOST
Chronicle


It wasn't supposed to be Mito's
last night as a K-9 police dog.
When the 4-year-old German
shepherd's handler, Citrus County
, Sheriff's Deputy Jim Davis, set him
loose to apprehend an armed at-
tacker on March 23, Mito did what
he was trained to do, and was met
with a knife to the chest
Deputy Davis rushed Mito to
Dunnellon Animal Hospital as
soon as he could leave the crime
scene.
The man who stabbed Mito and
charged law enforcement with the
knife was shot and killed.
Mito's knife wound went 6 to 8
inches deep into his chest. Some-
how it had missed Mito's heart by
inches. After a 2 1/2-hour surgery
he was expected to be off duty for
six to eight weeks.
But when it was time for Mito to
get back to work, Davis noticed a
change in the dog's behavior.
"Once he got released, we took


him out and noticed he wasn't as
aggressive as he used to be," Davis
said. He had been Mito's handler
for a little more than a year after
taking over for the previous han-
dler, Deputy Phil Martin.
As part of a training exercise
known as the "passive decoy," Mito
had been taught to apprehend a
person standing still when re-
leased. This time, though, he ran
the other way.
"He should be able to apprehend
the decoy and he didn't He had no
interest because of the injury,"
Davis said.
Davis said he felt disappointed
when he witnessed Mito's aversion
to a task at which he-used to excel.
"It's like watching your child get
up to walk for the first time and he
falls down," he said. As a result of
his change in behavior, Mito was
relieved of his duties as a member
of the Citrus County Sheriff's Of-
fice K-9 Unit
And like any retired profes-
sional, he is enjoying his newfound
free time. Mito now lives with


Davis, his family and Davis' three
personal German shepherds. Even
though Mito is an alpha dog, which
conflicts with another alpha dog
living at Davis' home, Mito seems
to be settling in fine to his new
home, with plenty of room for the
two to remain 'apart. After just a
few days as a civilian dog, Davis
said, Mito began doing something
working K-9's don't have time to do:
digging in the yard.
"He's becoming a dog," he said.
"He's learning what treats are all
about"
Meanwhile, the K-9 unit is not
suffering without Mito. Davis was
issued a new dog last week, an 18-
month-old German shepherd from
Shallow Creek Kennels in Pennsyl-
vania that Davis estimated to be
worth about $6,200.
Mito came to Citrus County in
2006 when the K-9 unit acquired
five new dogs as part of a commu-
nity fundraising effort that in-
cluded a donation by Major League
Baseball pitcher Mike Hampton, a
Homosassa native.


vation. Refreshments and lunch will
be served, and at the end of the ex-
ercise there will be a discussion and
evaluation period.
, "This training event should give
volunteers a clear idea of their roles
in the event of an actual disaster
happening in Citruis County," said
Heidi Blanchette, supervisor of the
Nature Coast Volunteer Center "The
information in this training will help
area volunteers properly respond."
The training will be at the Citrus
County Resource Center, 2804 Marc

County Road 491. For registration

Immune


therapies


fighting


cancer

Associated Press
ORLANDO - First there
was surgery, then
chemotherapy and radia-
tion. Now, doctors have
overcome 30 years of false
starts and found success
with a fourth way to fight
cancer: using the body's nat-
ural defender, the immune
system.
The approach is called a
cancer vaccine, although it
treats the disease rather
than prevents it
At a cancer conference
Sunday, researchers said
one such vaccine kept a
common form of lymphoma
from worsening for more
than a year. That's huge in
this field, where progress is
glacial and success with-a
new- treatment is often
measured in weeks or even
days.
Experimental vaccines
against three other cancers
- prostate, the deadly skin
disease melanoma and an
often fatal childhood tumor
called neuroblastoma -
also gave positive results in
late-stage testing in recent
weeks, after decades of
struggles in, the lab.
"I don't know what we did
differently to make the
breakthrough," said Dr. Len
Lichtenfeld of the Ameri-
can Cancer Society.
Instead of a single "A-
Ha!" moment, there have
been many "ah, so" discov-
eries about the immune sys-
tem that now seem to be
paying off, said Dr. John
Niederhuber, director of
the National Cancer Insti-
tute.
It's way too soon to de-
clare victory. No one knows
how long the benefits will
last, whether people will
need "boosters" to keep
their disease in check, or
whether vaccines will ever
be a cure. Many vaccines
must be custom-made for
each patient How practical
will that be, and what will it
cost? "
Those are all good ques-
tions - but there are no an-
swers yet, said Dr Richard
Schilsky, a University of
Chicago cancer specialist
who is president of the
American Society of Clini-
cal Oncology.
Several vaccine studies
were reported during the
weekend at the oncology
group's annual meeting in
Florida.
A big problem has been
getting the immune system
to "see" cancer as a threat,
said Dr. Patrick Hwu,
melanoma chief at the Uni-
versity of Texas M.D. Ander-
son Cancer Center. Viruses
like the flu or polio are eas-
ily spotted by the immune
system because. they look
different from human cells.
"But cancer comes from
our own cells. And so it's
more like guerrilla warfare
- the immune system has
trouble distinguishing the
normal cells from the can-
cer cells," he said.
Doctors unconnected
with these experiments are
cautiously optimistic.

Cemetery squirrel
wraps nest in flags
PORT HURON, Mich. -
Squirrel. Thief. Patriot.
A brazen squirrel has been
grabbing small American flags
placed in a Port Huron. Mich.,
cemetery and carrying them up
to its nest, which now looks as
if it's bedecked in bunting.
Every Memorial Day, volun-
teers place the flags next to the
graves of nearly 1,000 veterans
buried at Mount Hope Ceme-
tery about 55 miles northeast of
Detroit. The flags were undis-
turbed during a Mass on May
25. -
The Times'Herald reports
that workers at the cemetery
the next day noticed several
flags had been torn 6ff their
wooden staffs, which were still
in the ground.
The mystery was solved in
front of superintendent Ron
Ceglarek's eyes. He watched a
squirrel detach a flag stapled to
a staff and carry it up a tree to
the nest.
Wild turkey crashes
into Wis. home
MISHICOT, Wis.-A Wis-
consin woman and her 5-year-
old daughter got a fowl visitor
when an unwelcome wild
turkey crashed through a bed-
room window.
Heidi Herrera said she was
watching television with her
daughter Thursday when the
bird quickly charged into the liv-
ing room of their home in the
eastem Wisconsin town of
Mishicot. Herrera got her
daughter and their pet Chi-.
huahua to safety in another
bedroom. The mother then ven-
tured out and found the turkey
in the kitchen.
When she walked toward it,
the bird ran out the open front
door and down the street, leav-
ing behind feathers, blood and
glass scattered throughout the
'house.
Wildlife biologist Aaron Buch-
holz of the state Department of
Natural Resources said turkeys
can't see windows and the bird
probably thought it could fly
through the bedroom.

Obama bobbleheads
stalled in Customs
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -
President Barack Obama bob-
bleheads that are supposed to
be given away at a minor-
league baseball game appar-
ently haven'tgotten the nod
from customs officials..
The West Virginia Power
Class A baseball team said
Thursday that 1,000 of the fig-
ures have been held up at a
U.S. Custom's and Border Pro-
tection warehouse in Los Ange-
les since May 20. A U.S.
Customs spokeswoman in Los
Angeles said she didn't have
more information on why they
were stalled.
The bobbleheads are a like-
ness of Obama in his'high
school basketball uniform and
are part of Saturday's theme of
fitness and healthy lifestyles.
It's unclear when the bobble-
heads will be released, but it's
unlikely they'll arrive in time for.
the giveaway, said Kristin Call,
director of marketing for the
Pittsburgh Pirates' South At-
lantic League affiliate.
Fans will be given vouchers
to pick up the bobbleheads
once they arrive, Call said.
Orange juice 911
lands man in jail
ALOHA, Ore. -An Oregon"
man spent Memorial Day in jail
after dialing 911 to complain
that a McDonald's worker was
rude and didn't give him an or-


ange juice he ordered.
Raibin Osman of Aloha is ac-
cused of improper use of the
emergency telephone number.
The Oregonian newspaper
reports that the 20-year-old
bailed out of the Washington
County Jail on May 26 and
could not be reached for com-
ment.
Sheriff's Sgt. David Thomp-
son says Osman ignored
deputies who told him the .
emergency number isn't to be
used for straightening out fast-
food orders.
A McDonald's employee also
called 911 during the incident to
complain that Osman and the
people with him Were blocking
the drive-through lane and
knocking on the windows.

Connor Waugh, 15, and Morgan Liston, 17, divers with SCUBAnaut, don their diving gear Sunday. The SCUBAnauts joined
volunteers from Boy Scout Troop 302 from Inverness, Rorida Water Management District and Citrus County Parks and
Recreation to clean up the Chassahowitzka River.


RIVER
Continued from Page Al

SCUBAnauts and their accompanying
parents about the river. Chris Moses,
who regularly dives with the group, said
he hoped the day would begin a lasting


relationship between the group and the
river
"What-we're doing today is just taking
care of the spot It's important (for them)
from a standpoint of learning to take
care of the environment," said Moses.
"We look forward to monitoring differ-
ent indicators of the health (of the site)."
SCUBAnauts was started in 2001 in


Palm Harbor by retired Navy Capt.
Dave Olson. The nonprofit organization
is for 12- through 18-year-olds interested
in learning about marine science.
through diving exploration. The organ-
ization, which has three chapters in the
state, have explored in the Bahamas
and Hawaii in the past, and run entirely
on donations and grants.


PASS
Continued from Page Al

"Our research indicates
approximately 80 percent of
the individuals coming in
now, U.S. and Canadians,
are compliant," and are
crossing with proof of citi-
zenship, said Thomas
Winkowski, assistant com-
missioner for field opera-
tions at Customs and Border
Protection.
The higher noncompli-
ance areas, he said, are pri-
marily U.S. citizens in the
southern border region.
Travelers who do not
comply with the new re-
quirements will get a warn-
ing and be allowed to enter
the U.S. after a background
check, said Michele James,
director of field operations
for the northern border that
covers Washington state.
The new rule, which also
affects sea crossings, is the
final implementation of the
Western Hemisphere Travel
Initiative, a security meas-
ure crafted from recom-
mendations from the 9/11
Commission.
It's part of a gradual boost
in security along the north-
ern border that has featured
millions of dollars in up-
grades and the hiring of
hundreds of more customs
officers and U.S. Border Pa-
trol agents.
Before the new rule, trav-
elers only needed to show
identification, such as a dri-
ver's license, and orally de-
clare their citizenship. In
2008, the federal govern-
ment changed that rule to
require proof of citizenship,
such as a birth certificate or
a passport.
Winkowski said people
expected delays at points of
entry in 2008 after proof of
citizenship became a re-
quirement, but. no serious
backlogs appeared.
He said U.S. Customs and
Border Protection will con-
tinue its outreach campaign
through the summer to in-
form Americans of the new
passport requirement
Under the new rule, trav-
elers also can use a passport
card issued by the U.S. State
Department to cross land


borders. The card does not
work for air travel. At $45 for
first-time applicants, it's a
more affordable alternative
to the traditional passport,
which costs $100. More than
1 million passport cards
have been issued since last
year
Identification documents
available under the
"Trusted Traveler" pro-
grams are also accepted.
Those require fees ranging
from $50 to more than $100.
These programs, developed
by the U.S; Canadian and
Mexican governments,
allow vetted travelers faster
access to the border In some
cases, members in these
programs have their own
lanes at border crossings.
Enhanced driver's li-
censes, which use a mi-
crochip to store a person's
information, also can be
used to cross the northern
and southern borders.
Washington state, Vermont,
New York, and Michigan are
the only states that offer
them so far An application
process and interview are
required for these licenses.
There will be some excep-
tions. Children under 16
traveling with family, people
under 19 traveling in youth
groups, Native Americans
and members of the military
will be able to use different
forms of identification. Also,
travelers in cruises that de-
part from a U.S. port, sail
only within the Western
Hemisphere and return to
the same port do not have to
comply.
The U.S. State Depart-
ment said there has been no
spike in passport applica-
tions because of today's
deadline. The increase
came in 2007 when it be-
came required to show a
passport for. air travel to
Canada, Mexico and the
Caribbean. That year a
backlog of applications ac-
cumulated, affecting travel-
ers nationwide.
The number of U.S. pass-
port card applications, how-
ever, has increased as today
approaches, .said Brenda
Sprague, head of the pass-
port division of the depart-
ment's Bureau of Consular
Affairs.

destined to be razed.
"We needed a place and
went to Good Shepherd
Lutheran and also to House
of Power looking for space,",
said John Bourdeaux, one of
the ministry members from
Shepherd of the Hills. Nei-
ther church had space, but
both churches had a desire
to help."
"We had been getting calls
from people asking (about)
the food pantry, and for the
longest time I couldn't figure
it out," said the Rev. Ken-
neth Blyth, pastor at Good


Shepherd. "They were get-
ting the names of the
churches mixed up. So we'd
tell them to try Shepherd of
the Hills, but at the same
time at Good Shepherd we
started asking ourselves,
'Why don't we have a food
pantry?' But that sparks the
conversation, 'Why dupli-
cate the effort?"'
The same conversation
had been going on at the
House of Power Church,
said Teresa Banks, daughter
of the church's pastor,
Bishop George Dehn. The
three churches decided to
form a multi-church ven-
ture.
But they still needed a
place to house the much-
needed ministry to provide
food for the hungry.

from members of the three

People needing food are
eligible to come every other

25 6r 30 pounds of food, in-
cluding meat.
Bourdeaux said Shep-
herd of the Hills also has


$31,000 in their operating
budget this year to purchase
food.
"We also got a donation
from the Black Diamond
Foundation of $4,000," he
said.
They can always use more
- more money and/or nutri-
tious food donations, he
said.
"People who come here
also go to other places for
food," Bourdeaux said.
"Most have food stamps, too.
We can't give people enough
(food). But they have to eat"
Blyth said right now Good
Shepherd is mid-year in
their budget and can't com-
mit monetarily, but they
plan to next year. They same
goes for House of Power,
Banks said.


Both churches are ;sup-
plying volunteers. Many
hands make light work
"It's nice to see denomi-/
national labels be unimpor-
tant, and it's not just the
three churches, but the or-
ganizations where we get
the food," Blyth said. "The
two things that are exciting
- to be able to help the peo-
ple in need and also the ex-
citement that comes with
being able to work with
other Christians and putting
our labels to one said."

BAD TIMING


OK of interim



rate hike



questioned


n 1887; the Public Service
Commission was created
to regulate railroads. Over
the years, it has regulated the
rates charged by telegraph
companies, motor carriers,
airlines, electric utilities and
local phone service. No
longer does anyone worry
about telegraph rates. Our
electric bills are another mat-
ter.
On May 19, the PSC granted
Progress Energy two interim
rate increases. One was a
base rate increase of 41 cents
per 1,000-kilowatt hours.
Progress Energy requested
this increase, as its return on
equity, as measured by a
March report.
The 2009 state-
ment of earnings
fell below 10 per- THE I!
cent to 9.59 per- Progress
cent , , rate, inc
The Office of
Public Counsel OUR OF
argued against
the increase and Prema
said that
Progress Energy
had negotiated away the abil-
ity to seek interim rate in-
creases based solely on
earnings, as a result of a 2005
stipulation that covered the
period of January 2006 to De-
cember 2009. This debate be-
tween parties lasted several
hours and can be viewed on
the PSC's Web site for anyone
who has trouble sleeping.
As a . regulated utility,
Progress Energy can charge
rates that provide a fair. and
reasonable return on equity,
which is set at 10 percent.
PSC Commissioner Nancy Ar-
genziano questioned some of
the PSC staff's reasoning and
cast the lone dissenting vote
against the increase.
We, too, question the timing
of this rate increase when
public hearings and a fuller
examination of all aspects
surrounding rate increases
will be done in September.
Progress Energy received a
second interim rate increase
of $4.11 per 1,000 kilowatt
hours for switching four'
1950s-era oil plants to mod-
ern, natural gas-powered
plants.
The Office of Public Coun-
sel stated this type of cost re-


cover was more in line with
what was allowed for interim
increases. .
However, since the amount
was significant, $130 million,
and came without public
hearings, it was questioned
whether it would have been
better decided at the Septem-
ber hearings when fuller dis-
closure and public hearings
are conducted.
Progress Energy stated that
if there were any overcharges
on any rate increases, cus-
tomers would be refunded the
difference. Therefore,. cus-
tomers were being protected.
Progress Energy further ar-
gued, that since the Bartow

plants were com-
ing on line in
June, that
Progress Energy
would incur a
permanent loss of
revenues for six
months if it did
not begin collect-
ing in July.
In a state so de-
pendent on air


conditioning, electric rates
will always be a hot topic.
Electric bills are a major ex-
pense for many Floridians.,
We applaud the efforts of
the Office of Public Counsel
as iit monitors Progress En-
ergy. It appears to be more
sensitive toward the needs of
the public than some mem-
bers of the PSC.
Utility rates will undoubt-
edly go higher and Progress
Energy has every right to re-
cover the costs it will need to
build modern and efficient
energy delivery .plants. How-
ever, seeking a base rate in-
crease of 41 cents just before
hearings in September be-
cause its rate of return
dropped to 9.59 percent
seems a bit out of touch with a
customer base that would love
to get a 10 percent return.
SHowever, -Progress Energy
has a responsibility to its
shareholders to maximize its
return. And all of us must rec-
ognize.that when we waste en-
ergy, by not insulating our
homes properly, or maintain-
ing our air conditioners, we
avoid prudent steps that can
lower our electric bills de-
spite these rate increases.

No new era
Chronicle says "New era begins
in county leadership." There's no
new era beginning in county lead-
ership. This is the same old good-
ol'-boy system at its best with
Brad Thorpe as the administra-
tor...Same old, same old. It's a
joke ...
Too much money
I was reading today in the
Chronicle, in the newspaper, about
Brad Thorpe, the new county ad-
ministrator that was just selected
to be. I just can't believe it ... It's
just hard to understand how a
man can get paid $123,000 a
year. That's near $11,000 a
month, 12 months out of the
year, of course. Anybody could do


that math. What could he possibly
be doing to be worth that kind of
money that the taxpayers are pay-
ing $11,000 a month? What kind
of knowledge does he have? I
mean, what kind of words of wis-
dom where he's getting twice the
pay of a commissioner that's run-
ning a district? ... Taxpayers bet-
ter wake up and smell the coffee.
Who needs this kind of expense?
Unbelievable..

Just another day
Here we go again. Excess pay
and benefits for the new adminis-
trator on top of the high salaries
for part-time commissioners. Em-
ployees who actually perform are
not valued. Just another day in
Citrus. .

A few words about identity
politics: That's the knock
on Sonia Sotomayor, who
was nominated to the U.S.
Supreme Court last
week by President
Obama, If confirmed,
Sotomayor, who is
Puerto Rican, will be
the first Hispanic to
sit on the nation's -
highest tribunal.,
That has trauma-
tized some titans of -
the right. George Will,
for instance, com- Leonard
plains that "she em- OTH
braces identity VOIC
politics, including the
idea of categorical
representation: A person is what
his or her race, ethnicity, gender
or sexual preference is, and
members of a particular category
can be represented, understood,
empathized with only by persons
of the same identity." Some go
further, alleging that Sotomayor's
ethnicity carried greater weight
with Obama than her qualifica-
tions.
That argument would be a lot
more persuasive if the right (Will,
to his credit, was the exception
that proved the rule) had raised
it when John McCain chose
Sarah Palin as his running mate,
on the basis of her chromosomal
makeup. Sotomayor, at least, has
the aforementioned qualifica-
tions. Palin, not so much.
Point being, so-called "identity
politics" are practiced at both
ends of the political spectrum.
And I'm not at all convinced
that's a bad thing - particularly
where the high court is con-
cerned.


I intend no endorsement of So-
tomayor. Let's wait and see how
she does before the Senate Judi-
ciary Committee. I'm particularly
interested in hearing
how she explains her
quoted remark that "a
wise Latina woman
with the richness of her
Mt*. experience" will usu-
ally have better judg-
ment than "a white man
S who hasn't lived that
life." Rush Limbaugh
and Newt Gingrich
I Pitts have thundered with
ER simulated indignation
that the comment
makes her a racist. It
sounds more like at-
tempted irreverence fallen flat,
but she needs to address it.
Assuming she ascends to the
court, Sotomayor will be the
113th person to do so. Of her 112
predecessors, 108 have been
white men. Folks who profess
concern about identity politics
would do well to keep those num-
bers in mind, illustrating as they
do that race and gender have,
never previously been absent
from decisions about who sits on
the court.
That a point so blazingly obvi-
ous even needs making speaks to
the myopia afflicting many white
people when the subject is race
(and men when the subject is
gender). It is a stark illustration
of white and male privilege: in
this case, the privilege of ques-
tioning the role someone's iden-
tity plays in their promotion only
when that identity diverges from
the perceived norm, i.e., yours.
Contrary to What some would
argue, it is a net good when the


LETTERS to the Editor


Worker, visionary
A longtime economic devel-
oper and workforce visionary
has left us. Brett Wattles, whose
role in economic development
originated in his hometown of
Lake City, traveled to Tallahas-
see and then found root in Mar-
ion and Citrus counties, passed
away Thursday, May 28.
Those of us who have worked
with Brett have known his pas-
sion arid his vision, as they relate
to both economic development
and workforce development The
two were inseparable in his
mind. As a champion of both, he
served as the chair of local work-
force policy boards while provid-
ing professional leadership to
economic development in both
Marion County and, most re-
cently, Citrus County. As a con-
sultant, he carried that message
and vision to other communities.
In April, Workforce Connec-
tion honored Brett for more than
20 years of dedicated leadership
in the workforce area. Brett ar-
gued for close ties between eco-
nomic and workforce
development when it was not
popular on the workforce side.
His was a vision of a community
that, by working to expand its
business base and recruit new
industry, would provide high-
paying jobs for its citizens -

Remember families
Well, last Monday was Memo-
rial Day - a time to remember
our vets.
I am a 23-year veteran. I was
not in World War I or World War
II. I was too young for Korea. But
I certainly spent my time in
Southeast Asia: Laos, Cambodia
and Vietnam.
Vietnam veterans still don't
get their share of credit for the
50,000-plus who gave their all for
a stupid war. We are losing our
people now for another stupid .
war. We are at about 10 percent
of the loss that we had in 'Nam,
but if you are one of those, or if
you are a father or mother or son
or daughter, those figures don't
mean much.
.Remember all our vets, and
remember the dead vets don't
suffer anymore. It's the families
of the vets that should also be re-
membered.

well-served in 1896 had someone,
likely to be impacted by the rul-
ing been there to offer a counter-
balancing interpretation? If the
court is debating an issue of im-
portance to women, is not the
quality of its deliberation im-
proved if someone in the room is
in possession of a uterus?
. Yes, emphatically, to both.
Ensuring the presence of di-
verse people in the deliberation
chamber betrays no American
principles. Rather, it affirms a
core American promise: Liberty
and justice.
For all.

CITRUS CouNTs' (FL) CHRONICLE OPiNIoN MONDAY, JUNE 1, 2009 A9


Sotomayor status
With all the news shows and all the inter-
views, I still don't know whether Judge So-
tomayor is married or single. Does anybody
know that? I don't know it and I don't think
the people on TV know it because they
haven't shown it. So if anybody knows
whether she's married or single, it would be
interesting to know. Put it in the newspaper
as soon as possible.
Editor's note: Judge Sonia Sotomayor is sin-
gle; she and her husband were divorced in
1983.
Swine scam
I just got a phone call from somebody
trying to sell me pills for $300 that will
keep you from getting swine flu. I think this
is another scam. I just thought I'd like to
warn people about it. Don't buy it.
Editor's note: Yes, it's a scam.
Hot tip
I don't know about you rich folks, but us
poor people keep the hot water heater in
the closet next to the bathroom so when
you turn on the hot water, it doesn't take
long at all for the water to get hot. Think
about that. Why don't you stick your hot
water heater in your master bedroom
closet. That's all I've got to say today.
No need for private number
The way the sheriff spends money on Cit-
rus County, I don't know why he has to use a
private number to solicit funds to support
the sheriff's department...I just tried to get
something done about it and they said that's
the way they do it...
Burn ban
What's going on with the burn ban? I-still
don't see anything where they lifted the burn
here in the Chronicle newspaper. What's
going on here with these people? They put
this burn ban into effect. Is it that they don't
know how-to get out of it or something and
they're all bumping heads? "No, you do it,"
"No, maybe you should do it." I mean, come
on. Is there any leadership in this county be-
tween the board of county commissioners,
especially the chairman? What is he doing?
And how about this marshal, this fire mar-
shal? What is he doing? Are they, you know,
kind of saying, "No, maybe you should do
it," "'No, no, no, you do it," and going back
and forth like a couple of little kids? I can't
believe it. It's just ridiculous.
Editor's note: The burn ban has been lifted.
CREST comment
I would like to make a comment about
the teacher the school board fired. Thank
you so much. Our children deserve better.
I'd also like to say that the finest man in
education today is at CREST. His name is
Paul Hines. My grandson went to school at
CREST and he was wonderful not only to
my grandson, but all of these children who
deserve special attention and compassion.

What crimes?
To the person who thinks Dick Cheney
should be jailed for 50 years: What are his
crimes? What was done against the taxpay-
ers? What was said and done behind closed
doors? How do you know what was said be-
hind and done behind closed doors? See if

Belts vs. helmets
I see that they finally passed the seatbelt
law in your car or you'll get a ticket from a
police officer. I don't know, I think it's re-
ally, really ridiculous. I'd rather take my
chances with no seatbelt on in the car in a
crash rather than crashing off a motorcycle
with no helmet. You tell me.
Sophie's success
At the Blood, Sweat and Tears concert at
the Speedway May 15, 9-year-old Sophie
sang the most beautiful, perfect rendition
of the "Star Spangled Banner," that I have
ever heard. Thank you.
Thanks from a driver
This is to the certain few teachers,
coaches and schools in Citrus County who
in some way, either by buying meals, pay-
ing entrance fees, tipping, etc., who have
shown their appreciation to their Citrus
County School Board field trip driver. We
humbly thank you and truly appreciate the
showing of your gratitude and respect.
Reasons for leaving
I'm calling about Gerry Mulligan's article
about Citrus Memorial. They lose money
every year and it doesn't help that people
from other counties come here and use our
facilities and don't pay the bill. We should
bill the co.inty that they come from for these
services. Citrus Memorial's loss should be
spread evenly to all homeowners, but, as
usual, it's added to your tax bill and you are
assessed by the value of your home. A large
percent of the people in Citrus County are
paying less than $50 a year toward Citrus
Memorial in their taxes. The people who
came here in the last five years are picking
up 80 percent of the tab. When I built here
five years ago, they assessed my home for
25 percent more-than it cost me to build.
People on my street are paying one-third the "
taxes I am paying for the same-sized home. I
questioned why I should pay over $30,000
more than them in taxes over a 10-year pe-
riod. This is one reason why I am leaving
Florida. It's a combination of your unfair tax
practices, Citrus Memorial and, as you've
added Progress Energy and other things to
this dilemma, I will be leaving Florida as
soon as I sell my home.'
Purse plea
Please, whoever found my black purse
from the shopping cart at Publix before
noon today, Wednesday (May 27), please
don't throw the purse away. I will give you
some cash for all the paperwork and pic-
tures in it. Everything else was canceled. The
paper and pictures and the old cards and
stuff are the only valuables, and I need to,
have them back. So please call me at 726-
0637 or drop it at Publix for them to call me.
I really would appreciate it.
Freedom restrained
We should have a lot of freedom here in
America, but that is slowly being taken away
, - even forcing people to wear seatbelts.
Don't have one on, an instant ticket. More
money for the county. Our choice to wear
one should be ours. Another freedom of
choice down the tubes.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in
drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The City of Crystal
River is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing
components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your
tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you
may wish to have your watei tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize
exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and
wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some
cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff,
industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and
residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial
processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised
persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with
HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people
should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the
risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline
(800-426-4791).

We at the City of Crystal River would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment
process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or
concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

2008 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
City of Crystal River
PWS 6090317

We're very pleased to provide you with this years Annual Water Quality Report. We want to keep you informed about the
excellent water and services we have delivered to you over the past year. Our goal is and always has been, to provide to you a
safe and dependable supply of drinking water. Our water is obtained from the Floridan Aquifer by three wells. We use
chlorination for disinfection and fluoridation for treatment.

In 2008 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was
conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are 11
potential sources of contamination identified for this system with moderate susceptibility levels. The assessment results are
available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.

* This report shows our water quality results and what they mean.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Keith Mullins (Project Manager) at
Utilities Operations - (352) 795-3199. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want
to learn more, please contact our office during normal business hours, Monday through Friday - 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

The City of Crystal River routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules,
and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the.period of January
1 to December 31, 2008.

As authorized and approved by EPA, the State has reduced monitoring requirements for certain contaminants to less often than
once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from year to year. Some of
our data [e.g., for organic contaminants], though representative, is more than one year old.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants
in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for
contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants.
The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about
contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water
Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided
the following definitions:

Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL): The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as
close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.

Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG): The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or
expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.

Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is
convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control ofmicrobial contaminants.

Maximum residual disinfectant level goal orMRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known
or expected risk to health. MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.

Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water
system must follow.
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The
IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of
trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their
Stage I DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l): One part by weight of analyte to I million parts by weight of the water
sample.

Parts per billion (ppb) orMicrogramsper liter (pg/l): One part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water
sample.

"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.

Majority of GM

bondholders accept

swap offer

Associated Press
DETROIT- More than 50 percent
of General Motors Corp. bondholders
said Sunday they would support a
sweetened deal to swap the com-


pany's $27 billion debt for stock in a
restructured, leaner GM.
According to a statement from a
group of ad hoc institutional bond-
holders, 54 percent of GM bondhold-
0 ers met a 5 p.m. Saturday deadline to
exchange their unsecured bonds for
a 10 percent stake in a newly restruc-
tured company and warrants to pur-
chase a greater share of the new GM
at a later date.
That agreement should make the
automaker's reorganization go more
smoothly after it enters bankruptcy


protection, as is expected today in
New York The move is seen as one of
the critical last steps in GM's path to
enter bankruptcy protection and
quickly exit a slimmer, more effective
automaker. The company has been
working through the weekend to
make its final decisions on how to
proceed with a court filing. It has a
government-imposed June 1 dead-
line to finalize those plans.
Last week, bondholders resound-
ingly rejected an exchange offer that
did not include warrants to purchase


Offensive winding down


Associated Press
A displaced Pakistani girl eats a sweet next to her tent Sunday in Jalala Refugees camp in Mardan, Pakistan.
Pakistan says It is close to beating the Taliban in the Swat Valley, but battlefield success alone does not equal
victory: militant commanders are still on the run, local governments and police forces have been decimated and
millions of residents are displaced from their homes. :

Trapped residents emerge, seek food in Swat community


Associated Press
MINGORA, Pakistan - People
trapped at home for weeks
emerged in search of food at bar-
ren shops while corpses lay ex-
posed in the Swat Valley's main
city Sunday, as a Pakistani official
suggested the army offensive
against the Taliban in the region
could end in days.
Elsewhere along the Afghan
border area, dozens of militants
died in clashes with soldiers in a
tribal region, fighting that could
nudge the military to expand its
offensive beyond Swat.
An Associated Press reporter


who visited Mingora a day after
the army declared it was secured
saw many damaged buildings.
Two decomposing bodies, appar-
ently those of insurgents, lay un-
buried in a cemetery; a third,
charred corpse lay near a shop-
ping mall.
The smell of explosives hung in
the air.
"We have been starving for
many days; We have been cooking
tree leaves to keep ourselves
alive. Thank God, it is over," said
Afzal Khan. "We need food. We
need help. We want peace."
Pakistan launched an offensive
against militants in Swat and sur-


rounding districts last month after
they violated the terms of a cease-
fire and advanced into a region
close to the capital, Islamabad.
Speaking in Singapore, Pak-
istan's defense secretary pre-
dicted the army would clear
remaining militant strongholds in
the valley in "two to three days."
Pakistan's military spokesman
said that assessment was overly
optimistic.
The Swat offensive has earned
U.S. praise as troops have re-
gained large swaths of the region
from an estimated 4,000 militants.
The fighting has forced up to 3
million people to evacuate.


U.S. unsure how many troops will stay


Commanders mull role in Iraq


Associated Press
BAGHDAD - Thirty
days before the deadline to
withdraw U.S. combat
forces from Iraq's urban
areas, it is still unknown
how many troops will re-
main in cities as command-
ers determine their new
roles, a U.S. general said
Sunday.
The U.S. military has re-
peatedly said it will abide
by the requirements of an
U.S.-Iraqi security agree-
.ment, but has released lit-


tle publicly about .how it
will meet the June 30 dead-
line or what the new distri-
bution of its forces in Iraq
will look like.
"It remains to be seen
what the numbers will be,"
Army Brig. Gen. Keith
Walker, commander of the
Iraqi Assistance Group,
told reporters during a
briefing in Baghdad.
Under the security pact,
American troops who train
and advise Iraq's security
forces will stay in the cities.
Walker said commanders


were working to determine
the number of additional
forces, including some
combat troops, that would
be added to training teams
working in Iraq's urban
areas.
Walker dismissed any
suggestion the U.S. military
was just renaming its com-
bat units as trainers to get
around the pact.
"It's truly not a shell
game," he said.
The security agreement
also calls for all U.S. troops
to be out of Iraq by the end
of 2011. President Barack
Obama has announced
plans to withdraw Ameri-


can combat forces from
Iraq by Aug. 31, 2010, leav-
ing 30,000 to 50,000 U.S.
troops in advising afid
training roles until the end
or2011.
U.S. troops have been
training Iraqi forces since
2003, a slow process that
has produced mixed re-
sults. But the training has
taken on new urgency with
a timetable for the U.S.
withdrawal.
With the clock ticking, it
also remains unclear how
and when American troops
will leave cities where in-
surgents continue to battle
U.S. and Iraqi forces.


Efforts to engage Cuba face big test


Associated Press
SAN SALVADOR, El Sal-
vador-A diplomatic tug-of-
war over Cuba's outcast
status in the Organization of
American States takes cen-
ter stage atthe group's meet-
ing this week in Honduras,
testing U.S. efforts to engage
the communist nation.
Numerous Latin Ameri-
can countries are pushing to
reverse the 1962 expulsion of
Cuba from the 34-country
group, although the Cuban
government insists it has no


interest in returning.
An OAS official said a de-
cision on clearing the way
for Cuba to rejoin the group
could be postponed unless
there is a consensus. In that
case, Tuesday's meeting
could produce a statement
supporting efforts to find a
solution. Secretary of State
Hillary Rodham Clinton,
who arrived in El Salvador
on Sunday, is set to attend.
In a positive development
in U.S.-Cuban relations, a
State Department official
said Sunday that Cuba has


agreed to resume talks with
the administration on legal
immigration of Cubans to the
United States and on direct
mail service.
U.S. officials say they are
ready to support lifting the
resolution that suspended
Cuba from the OAS, but want
to tie readmission to demo-
cratic reforms. Nicaragua,
backed by Venezuela, Bolivia
and others, favors an ap-
proach to declare Cuba's
expulsion an error and re-
move all legal hurdles to it
regaining its membership.

The ad hoc committee, which said
last week it would support the deal,
made up 20 percent of the accept-
ance. The 15 percent of bondholders
who accepted the original offer sup-
ported the new one, and "approxi-
mately 19 percent more indicated
their support over the last few days,"
said the group's spokesman in an e-
mail. He also said that "975 institu-
tions either sent support letters or
gave us indications of support."

The threat boosts the
level of bitterness and re-
criminations between Ah-
madinejad and the
challengers, who have ham-
mered the president on
Iran's economic woes that
include rising inflation and
unemployment. They also
alleged his fiery rhetoric
and other stands - such as
questioning the extent of
the Holocaust - have left
Iran more diplomatically
isolated.
It also comes amid a spike
in violence and insecurity
that has raised fears that
this election could bring lev-
els,of unrest that have been
mostly absent from recent
races.
Clashes erupted Sunday
in the southeastern city of
Zahedan, where a Sunni
militant faction claimed re-
sponsibility for the bombing
of a Shiite mosque last week
that killed 25 people and in-
jured 80.

Bomb discovery
forces return of
Iranian plane
TEHRAN, Iran -An
Iranian airliner was forced
to return to a southem air-
port minutes after takeoff
when a homemade bomb
was found aboard, said
state television, in an inci-
dent a security official called
a "sabotage operation."
The report said the bomb
was found in a toilet, but
gave no other details on the
device. The incident took
place late Saturday night.
The plane, carrying 140
passengers, returned to an
airport in the southwestern
city of Ahvaz 15 minutes
after takeoff Saturday after
a passenger reported a sus-
picious package. The plane
belongs to one of Iran's
commercial airlines, Kish

No. 1 Nadal stunned at French Open


Spaniard was 31-0

playing in Paris
Associated Press
PARIS - For 31 matches,
Rafael Nadal ruled the red clay of
Roland Garros, boasting an un-
beaten record and an unbreak-
able will.
Spain's Rafael Nadal serves to
Sweden's Robin Soderling during
their fourth round match of the

For 31 matches,
this was his sur-

ment, his time.
For 31 matches,

lowing him to win
four consecutive
titles and close in on becoming
the first player in history with five
in a row.
Until Sunday. Until the fourth
round of the 2009 French Open.


Until Robin Soderling, a 24-year-
old from Sweden with a bit of an
attitude and 6-foot-3 worth of
power, transformed Nadal's ca-
reer mark at Roland Garros from
a best-ever 31-0 to 31-1 with 3 1/2
hours of assertive, and some-
times spectacular, play.
"Well, that's the end of the
road, and I have to accept it,"
Nadal said. "I have to accept my
defeat as I accepted my victories:
with calm."
Simply put, Soderling's 6-2, 6-7
(2), 6-4, 7-6 (2) victory over the No.
1-seeded Nadal rates as one of the
biggest upsets in tennis history.

Hampton picks up victory after seven strong innings


Former CR hurler

is 12-3 lifetime

against Pittsburgh
Associated Press
PITTSBURGH - If only Mike
Hampton could face the Pitts-
burgh Pirates in every start, he
might regain the form that al-
lowed him to be one of the Na-
tional League's best pitchers a
decade ago.
Hampton continued his mas-
tery over Pittsburgh, allowing only
one run in seven innings in Hous-
ton's 2-1 win on Sunday afternoon.
He became only the second
pitcher to win eight in a row
against the Pirates since 1954,
improving to 12-3 lifetime against
Pittsburgh. Only the Braves' Tom
Glavine has had a streak that


long against the Pirates in the
past 55 years.
"I've played for so many teams
and faced so many different line-
ups," Hampton said. "It'd been so
long since I faced them (prior to
his previous start against Pitts-
burgh in April) and the lineup
turned over and there's a lot of
new guys. I don't think there's any-
thing to it other than I was fortu-
nate enough today to make quality
pitches and the defense played
great behind me."
Miguel Tejada and Humberto
Quintero each went 2-for-4 with
an RBI for the Astros, who took
two of three from Pittsburgh after
arriving in here on a seven-game
losing streak.
"Hampton was very good
today," Quintero said. "He threw
everything for strikes. He threw
sinkers, fastballs inside, sliders
and changeups for strikes. I give
credit to Hampton today. He won
the game for us."


. Chris Sampson retired the side
in order in the eighth and LaTroy
Hawkins pitched the ninth for his
sixth save and first since May 14.
Nate McLouth homered for the
Pirates, who have lost four of five.
Tejada - who extended his hit-
ting streak to 14 games with a
first-inning double - drove in the
winning run with a bloop single
into shallow right-center in the
seventh. It was the third consec-
utive single of the inning for
Houston, scoring. Hampton to
break a 1-1 tie.
McLouth led off the bottom of
the first with a homer to right, his
team-high ninth of the season and
fourth time in his career he led off
the first with a home run.
But from that point on, Hampton
(3-4) outdueled Paul Maholm by al-
lowing only three baserunners.

Johnson wins at Dover


Associated Press

DOVER, Del. - Jimmie
Johnson nosed past Tony
Stewart with two laps left in
a thrilling battle-to the fin-
ish and won the Sprint Cup
Series race at Dover Inter-
national Speedway
Johnson pushed Stewart
over the final few laps Sun-
day on the concrete and fi-
nally caught him with an
outside pass. Johnson won
his second race of the sea-
son and got his fourth ca-
reer Cup victory at Dover.
"We just couldn't hold off
Jimmie," Stewart said. "He
was like a freight train
coming."
Johnson dominated most
of the race and led 298 total
laps after leading only 12
laps combined in the last six
races. The three-time de-
fending Cup champion had
a slow pit stop with 36 laps
left that dropped him from
the lead. With crew chief
Chad Knaus telling Johnson
he would catch Stewart,
Johnson pulled out his 42nd
career win.
"I just had to .go," John-
son said. "I had one heck of,
a race with Tony. That's
how racing's supposed to
be done."
He was followed by Stew-
art, Greg Biffle, Matt
Kenseth and Kurt Busch.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. fin-
ished 12th in his first race
with crew chief Lance
McGrew.
Stewart passed Jeff Gor-
don for the Cup points
lead and became the first
owner/driver to sit atop
the standings since Alan
Kulwicki won the Cup title
in 1992.
Gordon ran two laps down
in his backup car most of the
race and finished 26th to fall
46 points behind Stewart.
Johnson appeared to have
the race under control and
was never really challenged
for most of the 400-mile
race. When he came in for a
four-tire pit stop with 36
laps, a faulty exchange by
his crew slowed him down
and dropped him back into
traffic in ninth place.
Johnson was far from
sunk.
"It was a small hiccup,"


Associated Press

auto race on Sunday at Dover International Speedway in Dover, Del.


Johnson said.
One by one, he picked off
the drivers in front of him.
He charged past Kasey
Kahne and Kurt Busch until
only Biffle and Stewart
were ahead of the 1No. 48
Chevrolet with 10 laps left
Johnson passed Biffle and
that set up the frantic finish
that rivaled Talladega for
the most dramatic end so far
this season.
"I don't know how it gets
much more exciting than
'that," Stewart said.
Earnhardt posted his best


finish since Talladega in his
first race without longtime
crew chief Tony Eury Jr.
Hendrick Motorsports made
the decision to give McGrew
a shot at calling the race a
week earlier than expected.
He ran in the top 10 for a
portion of the'first half of
the race, and has to hope
this kind of finish can start
to turn his season around.
"One of the things I liked
about Lance is I felt like I
was in the pit box with him
all day, and I felt like he was
riding with me all day,"


Earnhardt said. "That was a
good feeling. Hopefully we
can keep that up."
Johnson took the lead for
the first time on the 49th lap
and twice held the lead for
67 laps. He thrashed the rest
of the field about as soundly
as any driver had in a race
this season.
Hendrick driver Mark
Martin was 10th.
'"As dominant as Jimmie
was, it looked like the rest of.
our drivers were driving for
second," team owner Rick
Hendrick said.


Dixon takes Milwaukee Mile


SCastroneves


finishes 11th

Associated Press

WEST ALLIS, Wis. -
Scott Dixon was stuck in
traffic with what he knew
was the best car on the Mil-
waukee Mile.
Less than 100 laps from
the end of Sunday's A.J. Foyt
225, the reigning IndyCar
Series champion found
himself behind both Target
Chip Ganassi Racing team-
mate Dario Franchitti and.
defending race winner
Ryan Briscoe, as well as
having to deal with lots of
lapped cars on the flat oval.
"I knew we had a better
car than both of them,"
Dixon said. "It was just a
question of- getting past
them. And, at this place, it's
tough enough to be out there
by yourself. It's really tough
to be out there with all that
traffic."
But Dixon, who said he
likes to be "quietly aggres-
sive" on the track, exercised
plenty of patience.
Franchitti took the lead
during a series of green flag
pit stops just past halfway.
The 2007 series champion,
back in IndyCar after an
aborted shot at NASCAR
last year, built leads of more
than 2 seconds over Briscoe
and Dixon before he got
held up in traffic and both of
his competitors got past on
lap 154.
A duel between those two
ensued the rest of the way,
with Dixon finally getting
past the Penske Racing
entry when the lapped car of
Tomas Scheckter briefly
held up Briscoe 25 laps from
the end.
It turned out to be a three-
wide pass, with'Scheckter
against the wall, Briscoe in
the middle and Dixon fear-
lessly zooming by under-
neath them both as the trio
drove toward the third turn.
"I was working.on Briscoe

for a good majority of the
race," Dixon said. "He and I
and everybody get caught up
(in traffic) some times. I ac-
tually had a run on him sev-
eral times and he kind of ran
me to the bottom theie. We
didn't get caught up, luckily
"That's how I got him. He
tried to go below (me), then I
got a run high and I got un-
derneath him going into
(turn) three."
Dixon went on to win by
2.125 seconds, nearly half
the, main straightaway on
the one-mile oval.
"It was tough," said Dixon,
who also took the series
points lead with his second
victory ofthe.season and the
18th of his career. "Man,
what a long race. Traffic was
(the) key today."
It was a great result for
Dixon, frustrated after fin-
ishing second to Briscoe
here last year.
"We've come a long way,
man," Dixon said, grinning.


"This place has always been
so tough. I remember crash-
ing two cars in four laps at
this place in 2005 --one in
practice and one in qualify-
ing. That's probably a record
of some kind. So I'm stoked
that the Target car was so
fast today. I'm just so happy
to win at this place."
Dixon will head into next
Saturday night's race at
Texas Motor Speedway with
a four-point lead over
Briscoe and Franchitti in
the season standings.
Briscoe, who led a race-
high 154 laps, was happy
enough with his runner-up
finish.
"It was a great day- until,
whatever it was, 40 laps to go
when Scott got me," the Aus-
tralian driver said. "But it
was hard work out there,
and traffic was a huge factor,
very difficult at times.
"Once he got the lead, he
was ,fast. I couldn't really
keep up. But it was exciting


and I love this place."
Franchitti finished third,
followed by Graham Rahal,
the 20-year-old son of long-
time racing star Bobby
Rahal, and fan favorite Dan-
ica Patrick, earning her
fourth top-five finish in the
last five races. IndyCar's
glamour girl moved into
fourth place in the stand-
ings, a career high.
"We have been really con-
sistent so far this year, and
that's what important when
you are working towards the
championship," Patrick
said. "I'm looking forward to
Texas and hope to keep the
momentum going."
It wasn't a good weekend
for Brazilian stars Helio
Castroneves and Tony
Kanaan.
Castroneves, riding a high
after winning last Sunday's
Indianapolis 500 crashed in
qualifying on Saturday, had
to start last in the 20-car field
and never was able to get
into contention. He wound
up two laps off the pace in
11th and fell from second to
sixth in the season points,
but seemed more concerned
about his Penske teammate.
"Unfortunately, we were
never able to find a good di-
rection," Castroneves said.
"Ryan seemed to be very
comfortable at this track,
and it's a shame that he
didn't finish first, because
certainly he had a winning
car here."
. Kanaan was in pain all
week after crashing hard
during the Indy race. He
managed to qualify third
and jump into the lead at
the start, but his car got
steadily worse and eventu-
ally caught fire in the pits,
relegating Kanaan to a 19th-
place finish.
"We can't afford to lose
races like this," the frus-
trated Kanaan said. "It's
going to cost us in the cham-
pionship."
He fell from fifth to sev-
enth in the standings, trail-
ing Dixon by 39 points after
five of 17 races.

Associated Press
Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist, top, watches
his throw to first base in an attempt to complete a double play
after being taken down by the slide of Minnesota Twins' Car-
los Gomez during the seventh Inning Sunday in St. Petersburg.


Twins 3, Rays 2
ST. PETERSBURG - Brendan.
Harris homered and Justin Morneau
and Carlos Gomez also drove in runs
Sunday to help the Minnesota Twins
avoid a weekend sweep with a 3-2 vic-
tory over the Tampa Bay Rays.
. Nick Blackburn (5-2) pitched six
strong innings, allowing two runs and
seven hits, and the Twins scored all
their runs off Matt Garza (4-4) to beat
their former teammate.and end a three-
game losing streak.
Caros Pena hit his AL-leading 17th
homer for the Rays. Matt Joyce also
homered off Blackburn, however Garza
- facing his former team for the first
time - was unable to hold a 2-1 lead
after limiting the Twins to two hits over
the first five innings.
Twins reliever Jose Mijares pitched
out of a jam with the tying run on third
base in the eighth. Joe Nathan worked
a perfect ninth for his ninth save in 11
opportunities.
Garza was acquired in the Novem-
ber 2007 trade that also brought short-'
stop Jason Bartlett to the Rays as part
of a six-player transaction that sent
Harris and outfielder Delmon Young to
Minnesota. .
The 25-year-old right-hander was an
11-game winner last season, and beat
Boston in Games 3 and 7 to claim MVP
honors in the AL Championship Series.
He has been Tampa Bay's most consis-
tent pitcher this year, flirting with a no-
hitter against the Red Sox on April 30,


when Jacoby Ellsbury's infield single
leading off the seventh inning spoiled a
bid for a perfect game.
' Harris and Young had the first two
hits off Garza Sunday, with Harris hit-
ting a two-out solo homer in the second
and Young leading off the fourth with a
single. Denard Sapn legged out a bunt
and later scored on Justin Morneau's
RBI single that,made it 2-2 in the sixth.

Red Sox 8, Blue Jays 2
TORONTO - Kevin Youkilis home-
red twice, Dustin Pedroia hit a three-run
shot and Jon Lester struck out a career-
high 12 as the Boston Red Sox beat the
Toronto Blue Jays 8-2 on Sunday.
Jason Bay also homered for the Red
Sox, who used a new-look lineup to
shake themselves out of a recent offen-
sive slump. Nine of Boston's 11 hits
were for extra-bases.
Batting leadoff for the first time this
season, Pedroia homered off the left-
field foul screen in the fourth inning, his
second.
Pedroia was bumped up from and
outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury dropped to
eighth as manager Terry Francona tried
to boost the offense after watching his
team score just 13 runs in its previous
five games.
The moves paid off as every Boston
starter except Jason Varitek had at least
one hit, helping the Red Sox score-more
than three runs for just the second time
in seven games and improve to 3-4 on
their current 10-game trip.
. Lester (4-5) allowed one run, three
hits and three walks in six innings, low-
ering his ERA to 5.65. His 12 strikeouts
were the most by a Red Sox pitcher
this season.

Indians 5, Yankees 4
CLEVELAND - Jhonny Peralta
drove in three runs with three hits, in-
cluding the game-winning single with
one out in the ninth inning as the
Cleveland Indians defeated the New
York Yankees 5-4 Sunday.
Peralta lined a 3-1 pitch from David
Robertson past diving third baseman
Alex Rodriguez on the backhand side
to score Trevor Crowe from second
base.
Mark Teixeira extended his season-
high hitting streak to 13 games and
had four RBIs for New York. He hit a
two-run homer, his 16th, in the sixth off
former Yankees right-hander Carl Pa-
vano. His two-run double off Matt
Herges in the eighth tied it at 4.
New York played its 17th straight er-
rorless game, tying the major league
record set by Boston in June 2006, but
lost for only the fourth time in 18
games.
Kerry Wood (2-2) pitched one
scoreless inning for the win. He got
Jorge Posada to bounce into an inning-
ending double play to end the top of
the ninth. :

Tigers 3, Orioles 0
BALTIMORE - Edwin Jackson al-
lowed two hits over eight innings, Cur-
tis Granderson homered, and the
Detroit Tigers beat the Baltimore Ori-
oles 3-0 Sunday to earn a split of the
four-game series.
Jackson (5-3) permitted only three
baserunners and faced only two bat-
ters over the minimum. Nick Markakis
hit a fourth-inning single; Robert
Andino walked in the sixth and was
caught stealing; and Ty Wigginton dou-
bled in the eighth.
Jackson, who struck out seven,
came within an inning of his second
career complete game. He was pulled
by manager Jim Leyland after throwing
101 pitches.
Fernando Rodney allowed a two-
out walk but got three outs to complete
the two-hitter and earn his 10th save in
10 tries. It was Detroit's major-league
high seventh shutout of the season.
Making his second big-league start,
Baltimore rookie Jason Berken (1-1)
gave up one run, four hits and two
walks in seven innings. The only glar-
ing flaw in his outing was a fourth-in-
ning solo shot by Granderson.
Starting in the cleanup soot for the
first time in his career, Granderson hit
his team-high 13th homer to provide
Jackson with all the offense he
needed.

PHILADELPHIA- Jamie Moyer
went six strong innings to win his 250th
career game, and the Philadelphia
Phillies won their third straight, 4-2 over
the bumbling Washington Nationals on
Sunday.'
The 46-year-old Moyer is the 44th
player to win 250 games, and only the
11 th left-hander to join the exclusive
list. It was his sixth try at 250 after
going winless in his last five outings
while allowing 38'hits and 26 earned
runs in 24'1-3 innings.
But Moyer (4-5) had one his best
starts of the season Sunday, striking
out four and walking none while regis-
tering a season-low hits allowed. It was
Moyer's first win since April 26.
Brad Lidge pitched a scoreless
ninth to record his 12th save.
The Phillies (28-20) have-won
seven straight against Washington and
10 of 12 this season against major
league baseball's worst team.
Josh Willingham homered twice for
the Nationals (13-36), who have lost
six in a row ahd 15 of their last 17.
Philadelphia took a 1-0 lead in the
first on Chase Utley's double that
scored Shane Victorino.

PHOENIX - Chipper Jones home-
red and drove in four runs, Garrett An-
derson hit his first home run with the
Braves, and Atlanta routed the Arizona
Diamondbacks 9-3 on Sunday.
Kris Medlen (1-2) was dominant for
Atlanta, allowing one run over six in-
nings for his first career win. Medlen
struck out eight and retired 14 of the
first 16 batters he faced.
Reed Johnson and Yunel Escobar
each had three doubles for the Braves,
who won for the second time on their
seven-game road trip.

against Diamondbacks starter Max
Scherzer (2-4), scoring two runs on the
game's first seven pitches.
Johnson doubled down the left-field
line on the second and Escobar dou-
bled to the left-field wall on the first
pitch he saw for a 1-0 lead. Jones fol-
lowed with a single to center, scoring
Escobar to make it 2-0.
Escobar doubled again leading off
the third, and Jones homered into the
left-field stands to extend Atlanta's lead
to 4-0 in the fourth.

NeW York Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez follows through
after striking out Florida Marlins pinch hitter Ronny Paulino for
the final out In the Mets' 3-2 victory on Sunday In New York.


Mets 3, Marlins 2
NEWYORK- John Maine shut
down Florida again before becoming
the latest Mets player sidelined by sick-
ness or injury, and New York held off
the Marlins 3-2 on Sunday to cap a
highly successful month.
David Wright made a diving grab to,
start a rally-killing double play, and the
Mets completed a 5-1 homestand to
finish 19-9 in May. After taking two of
three from Florida, they have won 11 of
the past 14 games at their new home,
Citi Field.
Bobby Parnell escaped an eighth-
inning jam and Francisco Rodriguez
struck out three in a hitless ninth for his
14th save in 14 chances.
Missing injured regulars Jose
Reyes, Carlos Delgado and Ryan
Church, New York got RBI doubles
from Omir Santos, Fernando Martinez
and Angel Pagan - who left in the
fourth inning with discomfort in his right
groin.
Pagan started in center field for All-
Star Carlos Beltran, who sat out with a
stomach virus.

GAINESVILLE - Pre-
ston Tucker and Matt den
Dekker drove in three runs
apiece and Florida used
two big innings to beat rival
Miami 16-5 on Sunday night
and advance to the super re-
gionals.
It marked the first time in
11 tries that the.Gators (42-20)
advanced in regional play
when grouped with the four-
time national champions.
Tucker and Josh Adams
homered for No. 8 na-
tional seed Florida, which
will host the winner of the
Atlanta regional next
weekend.
The Hurricanes (38-22)
struggled at the plate in all
four games, then really
came apart when their
pitching broke down.
Florida's first eight bat-
ters either scored or drove
in a run, staking the Gators

final 10.
"I just told myself to wipe
the slate clean (after the
McLouth homer) and, 'Let's
go. There's nothing you can
do about it,'" said Hampton,
who was 63-31 from 1997-
2000 but has generally strug-
gled and battled injuries
since. "That's the-way I ap-
proached the rest of the
game."
Hampton threw 90
pitches in his seven innings
- the longest he had gone
in a game since Sept. 18 of
last season. He hadn't
pitched seven innings and
earned a win since Aug. 5.
"I'd like to sit here and
say we struggled offensively
and didn't get hits," Pirates
manager John Russell said.
"And we didn't. But the guy
threw a good game at us. If
you can locate your offspeed
in and out, it's tough to hit"
Houston's first run came
in the second, when Quin-
tero singled in Lance Berk-
man.
Maholm (3-2) was charged
with both Houston runs -
one earned - on eight hits
and two walks in seven in-
nings, striking out four.
He hasn't won since April
22 and lost at home for the
first time since Aug. 30.

seven more in the fifth,
turning the game into a rout
Florida St. 37, Ohio St. 6
TALLAHASSEE - Stephen
Cardullo set a tournament
record with seven hits, includ-
ing three of Florida State's
NCAA-record 15 doubles, as
the Seminoles routed Ohio
State 37-6 on Sunday and ad-
vanced to the super regionals.
Florida State (45-16) set ,
NCAA postseason records with
37 runs, 38 hits and 66 total
bases, while Cardullo set the
school mark for hits in an offen-
sive performance the football
team would've been proud of.
Jason Stidham, the re-
gional's most outstanding
prayer, hit a two-run double as
the Seminoles scored eight
times in the first and cruised
past the pitching-depleted
Buckeyes (42-19), who trailed
32-0 in the fifth.

"It's good to get deep into
the game," Maholm said.
"There were some ground-
balls that got through. I
-think I battled and gave the
team a chance to win, but it
seems that those 1-2-3 in-
nings just aren't there.
"It was one of those days
where... Hampton had it It
was tough to get something
going against him."

Dramatic victory


Walk-off grand slam propels Florida into first-everNCAA title series


Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY - Ali
Gardiner was in a pro-
longed slump, her team was
in a tough spot and she had-
n't been on the best terms
with her father lately.
All in one swing, all her
worries were gone.
Gardiner hit the first
walk-off grand slam in
Women's College World Se-
ries history, lifting top-
seeded Florida into the
championship round with a
6-5 victory against Alabama
on Sunday night
It was enough to make her
father cry.
"His dream was always to
see me in a Gator uniform,
and I was here and I was
able to push our team to
where we wanted to go,"
Gardiner said, teaming up
herself. "It means a lot. To
see my dad, who doesn't
show much emotion - and
the last few days we haven't
talked much - it meant a
lot to me."
Gardiner sent a 2-1 pitch
from Alabama ace Kelsi
Dunne (28-5) the opposite
way, clearing the left-field
fence as Whitney Larsen fell
over the top as she tried to
make a game-saving catch.
It was her first hit in 16
at-bats and followed a
swing adjustment she made
during Florida's day off on
Saturday.
"I've been working to try
to get out of my own head
all week. I felt like I've
never had to work harder to
just get a base hit," said
Gardiner, who'd seen her
average drop from .438 to
.298 over the last three
months. "My last at-bat, I
just went up there, cleared
my mind and was just try-
ing to make good contact
and find a way on."
The Gators (63-3) won for
the 29th straight time and
will face either third-seeded
Washington or sixth-seeded

Wings take commanding

Associated Press
~r~j~w a '.


DETROIT - The Red
Wings found a perfect way to
move halfway to a repeat -
beat the Pittsburgh Penguins
back-to-back.
So much for Detroit being
old, beaten down and need-
ing a break. The Red Wings
topped the Penguins 3-1 in
Game 2 of the finals Sunday
night and are two wins from
holding onto the Stanley
Cup.
Just as they did a year ago
in winning the title for the
11th time and fourth in 11
seasons, the Red Wings took
the first two games from the
Penguins at home. This year
posed a new challenge,
sweeping a pair on consecu-
tive nights three days after
finishing the Western Con-
ference finals.
Rookie defenseman
Jonathan Ericsson, who
watched that series clincher
Wednesday night in the dress-
ing room hours after having
his appendix removed,
scored the tying goal for De-
troit in the second period.

center Valtteri Filppula against the Pittsburgh Penguins in
the second period of Game 2 on Sunday in Detroit.


scored his second of the se-
ries in the third. The Red
Wings left the ice in front of
their cheering, towel-waving
fans and headed for Pitts-
burgh with another com-
manding lead.
Game 3 is Tuesday night,
and the odds favor the Red
Wings' quest to become the
NHEs first repeat champion
since they did it in 1997 and
'98. Teams that win Games 1


and 2 at home have captured
the Cup 31 of 32 times.
Frustration boiled over for
Pittsburgh with 18.2 seconds
left, when Max Talbot stuck
his stick in goalie Chris Os-
good's midsection after he
made his 31st save. That led
to a fight between Evgeni
Malkin and Red Wings for-
ward Henrik Zetterberg that
left both players' jerseys torn
on the ice.


Alabama (54-11) had ral-
lied for four runs with two
outs in the fourth inning to
chase Stacey Nelson, who
leads the nation with an 0.39.
ERA. Nelson had allowed
only three hits in back-to-
back shutouts to start the
World Series, but allowed
an unearned run in the
third before Kelsey
Bruder's two-run home run
put the Gators back ahead.
Stephanie Brombacher
(22-0) threw two innings of
scoreless relief to keep
Florida within striking dis-
tance.


2-0 lead

The Penguins, who
dropped the opener 3-1 on
Saturday night, played bet-
ter in this two-game set com-
pared to a year ago when
virtually the whole roster ex-
perienced the finals for the
first time.
Malkin had a strong first
period and staked Pitts-
burgh to an early 1-0 lead. It
just wasn't enough'as Detroit
- especially Zetterberg -
bottled up captain Sidney
Crosby and kept him point-
less for the second straight
night
. Crosby sent a perfect feed
from behind the net to Bill
Guerin, whose bid to tie the
game in the second period
was foiled when the puck
struck the inside-of the left
post Crosby was denied by
the left post at the other end,
less than 2 minutes into the
third, a no-goal confirmed by
video replay.
Crosby let out a disgusted
spit from the bench as the
announcementwas made.
Just over a minute later,
Abdelkader sealed the win
with his second NHL goal
and second in two nights.
Not bad for a rookie who
hails from Michigan.


CHAMP
Continued from Page B1

the case so often, there
was a father-figure coach
in his life that took an in-
terest in the young man's
life. In Barker's case his
difference-maker was Cit-
rus wrestling coach Mike
Porcelli.
Right from the start Por-
celli noticed the amazing
agility, strength and determi-
nation of his young fresh-
man. He was, however, also
very well aware of the
youngsters baggage.
"When Craig first came to
us he was a kid that wouldn't
stick with something for 30
seconds back in middle
school," Porcelli said. "He
was always rough around
the edges but if you looked
beyond that you could tell
that he was somebody that
wanted to be successful.
Wrestling has been a great
partner with Craig's per-


sonal life in developing him
into the fine young man he
has become."
It's one thing to be good, or
even great, but to taste the
state title apple, that takes a
whole lot of commitment,
tremendous dedication and
loads of talent
And as Barker is very well
aware, even when you have
all of that going for you,
there's someone on the other
side of the mat just as com-
mitted to making the state
title their own. In Barker's
case, his last opponent of his
prep wrestling career wasn't
just great... he was perfect
Simmons entered the title
match an undefeated 39-0.
He would leave 39-1.
Tied at zero after two peri-
ods, Barker took the bottom,
position to start the third and
managed a quick escape, tak-
ing a 1-0 lead. Shortly after,
the official called Barker for
stalling and awarded a point
to Simmons. With 30 seconds
remaining, Barker made his
move, going for a double leg


takedown and maneuvering
Simmons to the-mat for two
points that would win him
the state title in the last
match of his high-school ca-
reer- a 3-1 victory.
"He came out banging
hard, so I started banging on
him a little bit," Barker said
of Simmons. "I felt him lift up
.. and I was there.
"I had it in my head all year
I was going to win it," he said.
That might sound a bit
cocky. But it would be a mis-
take to misunderstand
Barker's confidence as being
stuck on himself. Truth is,
nothing could be further
from the truth. It was in-
stead, Barker's humility that
was immediately noticeable
in the minutes following the
biggest victory of his life.
"I'm the first wrestling
champion from Citrus," he
said, "but I should be the
second."
The reference was di-
rected toward Barker's for-
mer teammate Bryant
Fisher, who took his 119-


pound state final to overtime
before losing under contro-
versial circumstances.
Barker admitted he was
sparked in his quest for a
title partly by revenge for
Fisher's loss.
While others may have
picked Barker's opponent,
the heavy favorite to capture
yet another state title, Por-
celli never backed off his as-
sertion that Barker, who
placed fourth in the state last
year at 112, would take home
a first-place ribbon this time
around.
When his prediction came
true, Porcelli gushed with
pride but also knew it meant
the end of Barker's time with
the program.
"We always had that syn-
ergy together," Porcelli said.
"And it was very emotional
because, hey, I'm not going to
be his coach anymore. I've
been coaching for a long,
long time, and he may be one
of the slickest, most com-
plete wrestlers I've ever
had," he said. "He has a


great passion for the sport,
and all the great champions
have that
"To put something up on
that (wrestling room) wall
where it was blank is really
a wonderful thing for the
program. But the great
thing about Craig is that he
hasn't just taken from the
program. He's been giving
back in big ways, especially
this year., That's when you
know a kid getsit...when he
starts giving back."
Barker, who finished his
senior season with a record
of 43-1, will now be continu-
ing his wrestling career at
the collegiate level when he
enters the Division I pro-
gram of Bloomsburg College
in Pennsylvania.
"They've got a proud
wrestling tradition at the
school with a bright, young
coach. They are right in the
heartbeat of the wrestling
world," Porcelli said.
"Ci-aig's first match of his
college life is on Nov. 15 at
Penn State in Happy Valley


in front of 10,000 people.
He's getting thrown into the
fire but I have no doubt in
my mind that he'll be able to
handle it
"He can do it, he has a big
upside," Porcelli said. "It's
just the tip of the iceberg."
Four years ago few would
have imagined this future
for Barker. Few that is ex-
cept a dedicated coach who
never stopped believing.
He, and a determined young
man who was intent on mak-
ing a better life for himself.
For this Citrus Hurri-
cane his unbridled passion
to never give up on his
dream has done more than
just earn him a state title ...
it's bought him a new lease
on life.
It is therefore under-
standable that as Craig
Barker puts the final period
on this chapter of his life
and starts a new one, you
can't help but wonder what
winning moments are yet to
be written in the life story of
this great state champion.

Stricker wins Colonial in playoff


Birdie sinks

Tim Clark on

2nd extra hole
Associated Press

FORT WORTH, Texas -
Steve Stricker has all sorts'
of top-10 finishes on the
PGA Tour this season. Now
he has the best one, too.
Stricker birdied the sec-
ond hole of a sudden-death
playoff to beat Tim Clark
and Steve Marino and win
'the Crowne Plaza Invita-
tional on Sunday. It was his
first title after being second,
third, fourth, sixth and sev-
enth at other tournaments
this year.
When the winning putt
fell, Stricker pumped his fist
twice, then gave a little
punch. It was pure relief.
"This means a lot," he told
CBS from the green, his
voice cracking and the
gallery chanting his last
name. "It's tough to win out
there. Feel fortunate, any
time you get a chance to."
Clark came in having won
the most money ($12.7 mil-
lion) without winning a
tournament in PGA Tour
history. His 0-for-183 skid
seemed likely to end when
he held a two-stroke lead
with five holes left to play.

Steve Stricker looks at the Leonard Trophy after winning the Colonial golf tournament with
a birdie putt on the second playoff hole Sunday in Fort Worth, Texas.


He was tied for the tourna-
ment record and was the
most accurate driver of the
week.
But he couldn't keep it up.
His next tee shot landed in
the rough, as' did his drive
on No. 18. He took bogeys on


both holes, coming up short
on his par putt on the final
hole to force the playoff -
the third in four years at the
Colonial Country Club. (The
exception was last year,
when Phil Mickelson made
a spectacular shot on No. 17,


leaving Clark in a tie for sec-
ond.)
On the first extra hole,
Clark put his approach 7
feet from the cup. Stricker
and Marino missed their
birdie tries, so the 33-year-
old South African had an-


other great chance at vic-
tory. He got the distance
right this time but rolled it
just to the left of the cup.
With his arms still on his
belly putter, he dropped his
head in disbelief, then
pulled his hat over his face
while the others made their
par puts.
On the second hole,
Stricker put his approach
within 4 feet and Clark al-
most matched it - but his
approach hit the stick and
rolled more than 20 feet
away. He missed his birdie
try and Stricker made his for
his fifth career victory.
Clark was left with his sev-
enth runner-up finish.
Marino was second for the
second time in his 81-tour-
nament career. It would've
been a sweet place for his
debut win considering his
mom grew up a few blocks
away and was in the gallery
with a group of her child-
hood friends.
Stricker and Marino shot a
final-round 68 and Clark an
even-par 70 to all finish at 17-
under 263.
Jason Day, a 21-year-old
Australian who recently be-
came a Colonial member,
shot 69 and finished- fourth
at 264. He shot 65 in the
other three rounds, but
started with a bogey and
wound up a stroke out of the
playoff.


"I missed too many greens
and I got a learning experi-
ence," he said.
Another stroke back was
Paul Casey, coming off a
prestigious win in Europe
that vaulted him to No. 3 in
the world rankings. He
opened the final round with
three straight birdies but
couldn't build on it much.
"I didn't find the middle of
the fairways and I didn't re-
ally put myself in position to
challenge the holes for
birdies, so it was a bit of a
grind," he said.
Woody Austin (68) and
Vijay Singh (69) tied for sixth.
Brian Gay had the lowest
final round, a 64 that jumped
him into a tie for 27th.
Stricker set the 36-hole
tournament record (126) and
was two strokes behind
Clark when the day began.
He birdied the fifth and
sixth holes to take the lead,
but gave it right back with
bogeys on the next two. He
missed a short par putt on
No. 16 for another bogey,
nearly ruining his chances,
especially when his ap-
proach to 17 landed in fluffy
grass behind the green. But
Stricker chipped it in from
there for a birdie, a good
omen considering the play-
off would return to that hole.
Counting the playoff,
Stricker birdied No. 17 four
times in five tries this week


McNulty edges



Funk in Iowa


Associated Press

WEST DES MOINES,
Iowa - Mark McNulty wonr
the Principal Charity Clas-
sic on Sunday for his sev-
enth Champions Tour
victory, beating Fred Funk
with a 30-foot birdie putt
on the fourth hole of a
playoff.
The 55-year-old McNulty
closed with a 5-under 66 to
match Funk (66) and sec-
ond-round leader Nick
Price (68) at 10-under 203
on the Glen Oaks Country
Club course. McNulty and
Funk birdied the second
extra hole to eliminate
Price.
McNulty, from Zim-
babwe, saved par on the
third playoff hole - on the
par-4 17th - after hitting
to the fringe of the green,
and Funk's birdie putt
lipped out.
Funk then couldn't con-
vert a tough birdie try on
the par-4 18th, and Mc-
Nulty made his putt for his
first win since the 2007
JELD-WEN Tradition.
McNulty rallied from
two strokes down in regu-
lation with birdies on 16
and 17. Price joined Funk
and McNulty in the playoff
with a birdie on 18. All
three players birdied the
18th to open the playoff,
and 18 also was used for
the second extra hole.
It was the Champions
Tour's longest playoff


since Tom Purtzer beat
Loren Roberts on the
fourth, extra hole in the
2007 AT&T Champions
Classic.
Mark Wiebe (69) finished
fourth at 8 under, and
David Eger (68) was fifth at
7 under. John Cook (64)
topped a six-player group
at 6 under.
Funk, coming off a fifth-
place tie in the Senior PGA
Championship, closed the
front nine with four birdies
in,six holes to take a one-
stroke lead over McNulty.
European Open
ASH, England - France's
Christian Cevaer won the Eu-
ropean Open for his second
career European tour win,
closing with a 2-over 74 for a
one-stroke victory.
'Cevaer, also the 2004
Spanish Open winner, had a
7-under 281 total on The Lon-
don Golf Club course. Scot-
land's Gary Orr (71),
England's Steve Webster (71)
and Spain's Alvaro Quiros
(72) tied for second.
Rex Hospital Open
RALEIGH, N.C. - Kevin
Johnson birdied the first hole
of a playoff with Jeff Gallagher
to win the Nationwide Tour's
Rex Hospital Open.
The 42-year-old Johnson, a
five-time winner on the Na-
tionwide Tour, finished with a
5-under 67 to match Gal-
lagher (64) at 18-under 277 at
TPC Wakefield Plantation.

Not sure? Set aside all of
Nadal's bona fides for a mo-
ment - the dominance on
clay; the six Grand Slam ti-
tles, including at Wimble-
don and Australian Open -
and focus on this: The 23rd-
seeded Soderling never had
won so much as a third-
round match at any major
tournament before this one.
S"I kept telling myself,
'This is just another
match,'" Soderling said.
Nadal won all three of
their previous meetings, in-
cluding a contentious match
at Wimbledon in 2007, and a
6-1, 6-0 rout on clay at Rome
in April. But this time,
Nadal was a half-step
slower than usual - he tum-
bled to the ground in the
third set, smearing clay all
over his pink shirt and char-
coal shorts - and Soderling
was lights-out good.
Soderling finished with 61
winners, 28 more than
Nadal, and won the point on
27 of 35 trips to the net
"One of those days,"
Nadal said. "I had some-
.one playing very well in
front of me."
The stunning result ren-


dered the rest of Sunday's
action around the grounds
mere footnotes, from reign-
ing French Open women's
champion Aria Ivanovic's
exit in a 6-2, 6-3 loss to No. 9
Victoria Azarenka of Be-
larus, to Maria Sharapova's
latest three-set victory, to
the Williams' sisters loss in
doubles.
All that really mattered
on this day was Nadal's
ouster. In the first round, he
,broke Bjorn Borg's record of
28 straight French Open
wins by a man. In the sec-
ond, he eclipsed Chris
Evert's overall tournament
record of 29.
"Everybody's in a state of
shock, I would think," said
Mats Wilander, a three-time
French Open champion
who works with Soderling
as Sweden's Davis Cup cap-
tain. "At some point, Nadal
was going to lose. But no-
body expected it to hap-
pen today, and maybe not
this year. Now it's a matter
of: There's a tournament
to be won."
The biggest beneficiary
might be Roger Federer, the
13-time major champion
whose resume is missing
only a French Open title,
Looked at another way, the
pressure on Federer to fi-
nally win the championship
at Roland Garros ratchets


far higher. Federer lost to
Nadal in each of the past
three finals at Roland Gar-
ros, and in the 2005 semifi-
nals, too.
"If one guy deserves it,"
Nadal said, "that's him."
Federer was the last
player to even take a set off
Nadal at the French Open
- all the way back in the
2007 final. Nadal's streak of
32 consecutive sets won at
Roland Garros, second only
to Borg's record of run 41
from 1978-81, did not last
long Sunday.
When Nadal missed a
backhand wide, then an-
other into the net, Soderling
broke him for the second
time to take the first set.
That, Soderling would say,
was key.
"I felt if I can win one
set," he said, "why not the
second one, and then the
third one?"
Soderling did come
within two points of winning
the second set, when he led
6-5 and Nadal was serving.
Nadal held there, though,
then ran away with the en-
suing tiebreaker, helped by
six unforced errors by
Soderling,
That was certainly a mo-
ment when Soderling could
have folded, Instead, he
showed fi' iiiitid
"11 la;iLks serious mind to


realize, that, 'Hey, listen, I
just lost the second set 7-6 to.
Nadal, but I am so much
better today, and I've just got
to stay with him.' And that's,
I think, what Robin exactly
did," Wilander said.
Nadal's high-bouncing
forehands didn't bother
Soderling. Soderling's deep
groutndstrokes and booming
serves - at up to 140 mph -
troubled Nadal, who stood
way behind the baseline.
When Soderling served out
the third set at love, Nadal
had lost two sets in a single
French Open match for the
first time.
As the fourth-set
tiebreaker began, spectators
at Court Philippe Chatrier
serenaded the underdog
with choruses of "Roh-
bean!" Others responded,
"Ra-fa!" Later, Nadal termed
the extra support for Soder-
ling "sad."
Soderling moved ahead 6-
1, but Nadal's forehand win-
ner erased the first match
point of his French Open ca-
reer On the second, Nadal's
volley landed wide, the final
point of his lone loss at
Roland Garros.
"We know that when we
walk on the court, we can ei-
ther win or lose," Nadal said.
"No one remembers defeats
in the long run. People re-
member victories. So I have


to move forward."
He turns 23 on Wednesday,
and noted he's accustomed
to celebrating his birthday at
Roland Garros.
Not this year. About 75
minutes after the match
ended, Nadal left the locker
room with a couple of gym
bags and a white plastic trash
bag with other belongings.
He paused at the tourna-


ment's player support desk
for goodbye kisses, then
walked past the transporta-
tion desk and said, "Ciao.
Merci." Nadal slid into a
black sedan that whisked
him through the complex's
green gate - departing one
week earlier than he ex-
pected, one week earlier
than every other year he's
been here.

:A colleague who writes a bridge
column for a British newspaper
suffered from careless typesetting
in January.The deal contained 16'
spades, 13 hearts (but with two
kings and two queens), 13 dia-
monds (but with two aces and two
threes) and 11 clubs (with two
queens and two fives),
I wondered what the correct dia-
gram should have been. Deducing
from the text that the 'West and
South hands were correct, I came
up with today's layout. I am confi-
dent about everything except the
North and East diamond spots.
Note East's two-spade overcall.
Against an opposing strong no-
trump, it is more important to have
good distribution and a long suit
than high-card points. You enter
the auction, hopefully find a fit, and
exit Also, intervening with two of a

South bid what he hoped he
could make, but many top pairs
would have jumped to four dia-
monds, a Texas transfer to hearts.
(Texas applies if it is a jump.)
Against four hearts, West took his
two top diamonds, then, to quote
the columnist, "confused by East's
signal in the suit," continued with
a third diamond, South gratefully
discarding his spade loser on
dummy's diamond queen.
Declarer ruffed a spade and led
the' heart queen, covered by the
king and ace. After a second spade
ruff, South took three club tricks
ending on the board and trumped
the last spade. Everyone had three
cards left. When declarer played
his final club, West had to ruff and
lead from his 10-8 of hearts into
South's J-9: four hearts doubled
and made.


Unscramble these four Jumbles,
one letter to each square,

Dear Annie: My husband,
"Jonas," and I own a small-
antique store that we have
successfully operated
for five years. We have
no kids and have al-
ways been very close.
However, for the past
two months our love.
life has been a little
rocky. Jonas has not
shown any interest in
sex even though I have
given him every oppor-
tunity. Of course, we
both have two full-time
jobs with. the antique ANN
shop on the side, so MAIL
there's not much time
for intimacy.
We recently hired extra help at
the shop so we'd have more time.
together. One day last week, I
walked in after hours and heard
noises coming from the upstairs
storage area. When I bravely in-


vestigated with a baseball bat, I
opened the door and, to my hor-
ror, saw my husband and the re-
cently hired stock boy
having sex. When
Jonas saw me standing
there, he had nothing
to say
Annie, I am dis-
traught but still in love
with him. Jonas and I
went for counseling,
but he stopped after
two sessions, saying
there was no problem.
I continued on my
IE'S own. I have .con-
BOX fronted him about the
incident, and he says
he doesn't know why
he did it. I recently moved into
our guest bedroom and have
been avoiding Jonas until I can
find a way to forgive him. In my
wildest dreams, I never would
have imagined this. We've been


married 20 years. Should I stay
with him or get a divorce? Could
this mean he is homosexual? -
Distraught and in Love
Dear Distraught: Yes, Jonas
could be homosexual. At the very
least, he's bisexual and his at-
traction to men is not likely to
disappear. Since you don't know
how many extramarital encoun-
ters Jonas has had, please get
checked for STDs. Then ask him
once again to go with you for
counseling, and if he refuses, we
hope you will keep seeking help.
You have some tough decisions
ahead.

Today's HOROSCOPE


Birthday: In the year ahead, things will
turnout more to your liking if you stick to
familiar subjects instead of trying to be a
trailblazer.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) - Lady Luck
isn't likely to be in your comer in a spec-
ulative involvement where the excite-
ment of winning big is at stake.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) - Your part-
ner or workmate might be more insistent
than usual about getting his or her way.
Rather than fight, give a little slack.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) - People should
not be treated with disdain, so don't be
haughty or smug when dealing with any-
one.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Conditions
are ripe for repeating the costly ill-con-
ceived handling of a previous affair.


Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Hold your
emotions in check so you don't lose your
temper just because companions aren't
doing things your way.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Unless
you carefully think out every step when
tackling an important undertaking, mak-
ing a costly mistake is quite likely.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Keep
your wits about you, because if you are
careless with your belongings, some-
thing you cherish might get lost or stolen.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Working
hard isn't always an assurance of getting
productive results. In fact, the more de-
tailed you make a job, the more likely
you are to trip over all the little things.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - The con-
fidential information offered by an "in-


sider" isn't likely to hold much weight.
Before acting on someone's tip, gather
facts from as many legitimate business
sources as possible.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) - Don't rec-
ommend to others something you
haven't verified. If your pals should get
ripped off, you may be held accountable.
Aries (March 21-April 19) - Be excep-
tionally careful about how to handle any
affairs that could have an effect on your
status in the workplace. Don't hurt your
reputation.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) - Try to sus-
tain a steady, productive pace. If you get
behind and then have to work under
pressure, you'll start to make mistake
after mistake, putting you even further
behind.

B.B. King, left, visits with
Fats Domino on Saturday
after King's performance
at The Domino Effect, a
tribute concert for Domino,
In New Orleans.

Domino makes
rare appearance
NEW ORLEANS -
Fats Domino rarely
emerges from his
Louisiana home - and
many wondered if he'd
show up for "The Domino
Effect," his namesake
concert that raises funds
to help rebuild schools
and playgrounds dam-
aged by Hurricane Kat-
rina.
Sure enough, the 81-
year-old New Orleans na -
tive smiled and waved
from his private suite to
more than 3,000 cheeri ng
people who attended Sat-
urday's concert to see two
of his old friends perform
- Little Richard and B.B.
King. Domino is an icon
in New Orleans, known
nearly as much for his
reclusiveness as for hits
like "Blueberry Hill" and
'"Ain't That a Shame."
Saturday's concert ra n
more than four hours and
included performances
by Chuck Berry, Wyclef
Jean, Keb' Mo' and Junior
Brown. Comedian-actor
Tracy Morgan, best
known for his work on
the TV shows "Sat-
urday Night Live"
and "30 Rock,"
also performed.
Proceeds from
the event are ear-
marked for "Opera-
tibi Kids," a program
run through Saints quar-
terback Drew Brees'
foundation to improve the
city's parks and schools.

Pixars'UP soars


Film hauls in

$68.2 million

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES - The ani-
mated action comedy "Up" took
flight with a $68.2 million open-
ing weekend, maintaining a
perfect box-office track record
for Pixar Animation, whose 10
films all have been commercial
and critical hits.
"Up" had the third-best
opening fora film from Disney-
owned Pixar, just behind the
$70 million debuts for"Finding
Nemo" and "The Incredibles."
Last summer's Disney-Pixar re-
lease, "WALL-E," debuted with
$63 1 million.
Like its Pixar predecessors,
which include the "Toy Story"
movies," "Finding Nemo" and
"Ratatouille." "Up" earned
glowing reviews from critics.
"Usually things that are very
popular with audiences don't
necessarily go over that well
with critics: These things do
both, and pretty much consis-
tently every time," said Holly-
wood.com box-office analyst
Paul Dergarabedian.
"The Disney-Pjxar
collaborqtipp is 4e
probably',ihe'e
closest
thing to box- ,
office perfec- -
tion out
there."


TICKET SALES
1. "Up," $68.2 million.
2. "Night at the Museum:
Battle of the Smithson-
ian," $25.5 million.
3. "Drag Me to Hell,"
$16.6 million.
4. "Terminator Salvation,"
$16.1 million.
5. "Star Trek,"
$12.8 million:
6. "Angels & Demons,"
$11.2 million.
7. "Dance Flick,"
$4.9 million.
8. "X-Men Origins: Wolver-
ine," $3.9 million.
9. 'Ghosts of Girlfriends
Past," $1.9 million.
10. "Obsessed," $665,000.

"Up" took over the No. I spot
from 20th Century Fox's "Night
at the Museum: Battle of the
Smithsonian." which slipped to
second-place with $25.5 mil-
lion. The "Museum" sequel
raised its .10-day total to $105.3
million.
The weekend's other new
wide release, Universal Pic-
tures' horror tale


'I.


Man" movies had blockbuster
opening weekends.
Paramount Pictures' "Star
Trek" steered a strong course,
coming in at No. 5 with $12.8
million and passing the com-
puter-animated "Monsters vs.
Aliens" as the year's top-gross-
ing movie so far.
"Star Trek" raised its domes-
tic total to $209.5 million, be-
coming the first 2009 release to
cross the $200 million mark
"Up" features the voice of Ed
Asner in the adventures of a
lonely widower who ties he-
lium balloons to his house and
flies to a South American ad-
venture with a 9-year-old stow-
away.
"An elderly gentleman and a
young boy traveling offlto South
America; it's not your typical an-
imated story and not necessar-
ily the easiest story to convey."
said Mark Zoradi, president of
Disney's motion-picture group.
"That's why I give a lot of credit
to the marketing team for taking
a movie that wasn't easy to con-
vey to the public and opening it
to the highest levels of anima-
tion that we've ever done for an
original story."
Factoring in higher admis-
sion prices, earlier Pixar
movies such as "Toy Story
2" and "Monsters, Inc."
X- sold more tickets than
"Up" over their first
. weekends.
" ' "Up" drew both fam-
ily crowds and adults
without children, and
' , the film's 3-D release ac-
^: counted for 51 percent
of the total gross, ac-
S cord ing to Disney.
Hollywood finished
the month with record rev-
7 enues of $1.02 billion, com-
ing in slightly ahead of the
previous high in May 2007. ac-
cording to Hollywood.com.
Momentum for the year
continued to slow from the
record pace set in the first
four months of 2009. While
May revenues came in 4.7 per-
cent above those of May 2008,
Hollywood has not yet had a
sky-high opening on the order'
of last year's action hits "Iron
Man" and "Indiana Jones and
the Kingdom of the Crystal
Skull," which both topped $300
million domestically.
Overall weekend revenues
were at $167 million, virtually
even with the same period last
year.
Total revenues for 2009 rose
to $4.1 billion, up 13.7 percent.
Movie attendance was about 11
percent ahead of last year's.


Carl Fredricksen, voiced by Ed Asner, Is shown In a scene
from "Up." The Disney/Pixar film was No. 1 at the box of-
fice, the third-best opening for a film from Disney-
owned Pixar. Overall, "Up" is the 10th PIxar film to
land at No. I In its opening weekend.

LOS ANGELES - Spencer
Pratt would like to see his new
bride get back to her roots. For-
fer "American Idol" contest-
ant Sanjaya Malakar wants to
be known as more than a mop
top. And former Illinois first
lady Patti Blagojevich says she
needs the paycheck
NBC, for its part, is fervently
hoping that TV viewers will be
.drawn to them as part of the
oddball casting mix concocted
for the reality series "I'm a
Celebrity ... Get Me Out of
Here!" debuting at 8 p.m. today.
The participants, dropped
into the Costa Rican jungle for
a month, will be put through
audience-dictated challenges
to gain food and other supplies.
The goal is to emerge as king-
or queen - of the jungle and
win most of prize money to do-
nate to charity
The amount of money for
charity hasn't been announced
and neither has the pay the
celebrities will get for them-
selves, network spokesman
Gary Mednick said Sunday


Associa
Celebrities, from left, John Salley, background, Janic
inson, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, leave the airpo
arriving in San Jose, Costa Rica, for the NBC reality
"I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here," which premieres


Others scrabbling for their
very survival - or at least pub-
lic images - are actors
Stephen Baldwin and Lou Di-
amond Phillips, model and TV
host Janice Dickinson, former
basketball player John Salley,
professional wrestler Torrie
