CRYSTAL RIVER Just off the beaten path of U.S. 19, inside the gates of Crystal River Preserve State Park and just down a jaw-rattling gravel road, sits one of Citrus County residents favorites for fishing. Its a fishing hole like no other, according to regulars. Locals call it the mullet hole because depending on the day, you can bring in a whole mess of them. And fancy it is not. It is a serene throwback to days of yore with its placid waters and an idyllic stand of vegetation on its banks. And, every now and again, an excited mullet will get airborne only to re-enter the dark depths of the Crystal River tributary Citrus Countys own secret garden. It is also on these banks you can find Curtis Washington and Therese Fairley perched with a fishing rod and line in hand. No artificial lures, no reels, just a bucket of homemade fish appetizer made of chicken feed, oatmeal and flour. This is like heaven, you know, Fairley said.

The law does not clear all the issues. Circuit Court Judge Jackie L. Fulford stated Monday in Tallahassee that a temporary injunction had been granted to the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation against the implementation of a law passed during this years Legislative Session, signed by Gov. Rick Scott on June 24 and set to take effect July 1. The law, from House Bill 1043, was sponsored by state Sen. Charles Dean, R-Inverness; state Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey; and state Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, R-Inverness. The effect of the law would be to shift control of the Inverness hospital from the foundation to the Citrus County Hospital Board of Trustees.

They are not pleasure boating or relaxing. They are towing their daughter, Leah, 19, behind their boat as she trains for her next wakeboarding competition. Leah has her goal set on being the next professional wakeboarding superstar, and her parents are right there with her to make that dream come true. James drives a consistent 22.2 mph as Rhonda watches and claps as Leah completes her next wakeboarding trick. You spin to win, Rhonda yelled out with much enthusiasm. James might drive the boat, but he and Rhonda agree that Leah is the one with the real drive. Pure passion and independence, Rhonda said as she described her daughters enthusiasm for the sport. She sees it as a way to get her independence some day through all kinds of avenues. All that combined, I think thats what drives her. Leah has kept her amateur status, as she is a sophomore at the University of West Florida. She is majoring in hospitality and resort management. We kept her amateur this year, Rhonda said. Dad wants her to keep her eye on the ball. We want her to get a college education. We want her to have it all. I dont want her distracted trying to be on a pro tour. Leah started wakeboarding when she was 7. She has been competing since she was 14. Last year, she finished third in the World in the World Wakeboarding Associations Junior Womens Amateur division. This year she will compete in the Womens Amateur division. She is working on advanced tricks like the scarecrow, toe and heel 360s, back rolls and inverts that will help her to win the world title. Leah said if she wins the world title, she could possibly get a commercial sponsorship, which would give her the tools, time and money to turn her amateur status into a professional one. You can become pro whenever you want, She said. I wouldnt really want to go pro unless I have a chance in being in the top 10. School is first for me. If I stick with wakeboarding throughout Spin CATHY KAPULKA /Chronicle Leah Gibney, 19, does a back roll as she practices her wakeboarding tricks on Lake Henderson in Inverness. She is working on two of her many goals, to become the World Wakeboarding Associations Womens Amateur divisions World champion and then to turn pro.

The retired casino worker from Connecticut moved to Citrus County four years ago and discovered the hole three years ago. I am here five, six and maybe seven days sometimes, she said. A Citrus County native, Washington, 60, said coming to the fishing spot is a form of relaxation. I have been coming here since I was a kid. We all knew where the hole was because it is really the only place around here that you can sit, relax and have fun just fishing, Washington said. He said in recent years more people have discovered the spot and it is not much of a secret anymore. They come from all over now, but its all right, most people are really nice, he said. Retiree Fairley said even though more people have found the hidden gem, it is still best place around. What more can you ask for? Another rumored hot spot for fishing enthusiasts is Kings Bay Park.

Page A3 MONDAY, JULY 25, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE C HERI H ARRIS Staff WriterBudgets and buildings will be on the minds of Citrus County School Board members at their next meeting. Board members will hit the road for a workshop Tuesday, traveling to Crystal River High School, Crystal River Primary School and Lecanto High Schools cafeteria to see the progress of construction projects at these sites. They will leave at 10 a.m. from the District Services Center in Inverness. Following the tour, the board will adjourn for lunch and regroup for an administrative hearing at 3 p.m. at the District Services Center followed by a budget workshop at 3:30 p.m., a special meeting at 4:30 p.m., and a public hearing at 5:30 p.m., after which the board is scheduled to adopt the tentative 20112012 budget, the tentative millage rates, and the tentative facilities work program. Following a state funding reduction of about $11.2 million for the 2011-2012 school year compared to this past school year, school board members and district leaders have been working to identify cuts that would have the least impact on students. Kenny Blocker, assistant superintendent of business services, said the Marine Science Station, which had appeared on a list of possible savings, remains funded on the tentative budget at a cost of about $200,000. He explained that $1.6 million in savings have come from staff reductions based on a projected decline in student enrollment, as well as a savings of about $270,000 from leaving some vacancies unfilled in the district office, plus about 60 other vacancies districtwide that could save about $2.1 million if they remain unfilled. Really, the plan we put in place back in May is the plan were using today to capture as much savings as we can this year, Blocker said. The district will compensate for some of the shortfall by dipping into $5 million in reserves, which is money we had set aside for this anyway, Blocker said. The final budget hearing will be at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13, after which the school board will vote on the final budget.

C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterA Dade City bank got word Wednesday that it will receive $8.8 million in federal funds to lend to small businesses. This funding will help break down barriers to credit for small businesses so they can invest, expand and create new jobs, said Treasurer of the United States Rosie Rios. Continuing to unlock access to capital for Main Street entrepreneurs is vital to strengthening economic growth and job creation in local communities across our country. The bank is Florida Traditions Bank. In addition to its Dade City branch, it has branches in Winter Haven, Zephyrhills and Spring Hill. Its website is www.fltraditionsbank.com. According to the U.S. department of the Treasury, the bank received the funds through the Small Business Lending Fund, which was established as part of the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 that President Obama signed into law to encourage community banks to increase their lending to small businesses. The Small Business Lending Fund holds $30 billion to provide capital to qualified community banks with assets of less than $10 billion. The U.S. economy relies heavily on small businesses because they employ about half of all Americans and create about 60 percent of jobs. But because they are small, these businesses faced heavier challenges than large corporations through and after the recession and credit crisis, including difficulty accessing capital. The way the lending fund works is that in addition to providing the capital to a qualified community bank, it reduces the dividend rate to the community bank as it increases its lending to small businesses to encourage new lending so that small businesses can expand and create jobs. For more details about the SBLFprogram, visit www.treasury.gov/ resource-center/sb-programs/Pages/ Small-Business-Lending-Fund.aspx.

C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterA Homosassa man hospitalized after exposure to tear gas fired into his doublewide mobile home by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office Special Weapons And Tactics team during a domestic disturbance has been released from hospital and taken into custody. Joachim Jack Schulz, 70, reportedly battered a woman on July 12, then barricaded himself in his home for nearly five hours. According to a report from the sheriffs office, neighbors reported hearing shots fired inside the home in a small, rural neighborhood south of West Green Acres Street off U.S. 19. Responding to the scene at 1 a.m., deputies found a 72-year-old woman who was reported to have been physically battered, but not shot. According to the arrest report, the woman had been thrown to the ground, beaten about the head and face with hands, choked multiple times, jumped on at the abdomen and chest, hit in the head with a firearm and had shots fired near her feet. The woman fled from the home when Schulz temporarily passed out, according to the report. Then she took shelter at a neighbors home. She was transported to Citrus Memorial Health System in Inverness, where she was treated and released within a few days. Schulz was reported to have been barricaded inside the home with multiple firearms on the premises. The SWAT and crisis negotiation teams tried to establish contact with Schulz, but he remained uncommunicative. At nearly 6 a.m. tear gas was deployed and SWAT members made entry. Schulz was transported to Seven Rivers Regional MedicalCenter in Crystal River for treatment of gas exposure. He was released Friday, and faces multiple charges. These charges include: attempted murder, aggravated battery on a person 65 or older with a firearm, felony battery (domestic) by strangulation, false imprisonment, aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony and shoot/throw a deadly missile into a dwelling/conveyance. He has no bond. Chronicle reporter Chris van Ormer can be reached at (352) 564-2916 or cvanormer @chronicleonline.com.

C HERI H ARRIS Staff WriterLECANTO Site work started recently on a new Dollar General store near the intersection of State Road 44 and County Road 491 in the area known as Cowboy Junction. Dollar General spokeswoman Emily Weiss said she did not have an anticipated opening date for the new store. Its a little bit too early to tell, she said. According to information on the Dollar General website, the Goodlettsville, Tenn.-based corporation is the nations largest smallbox discount retailer. Weiss said typical Dollar General stores have 7,100 square feet of selling space. With a total of 9,026 square feet, she said this store would be a little larger. Tina Gilson of the Citrus County Building Division said Cassida Construction is building the new store. When completed, Weiss said the store at 3525 W. Gulf-to-Lake Highway would have six to 10 employees, some part-time and some full-time. The new store will include a new floor plan for the showroom. Some of the highlights of the new store layout include seasonal products featured in the center of the store, Weiss said, coolers near the front of the store, and there is more visible department signage so when you walk into the store, each department of the store is more visible and easier to find as youre shopping. According to the Dollar General website, nationwide the company had $13 billion in sales in the fiscal year 2010, more than 9,500 stores in 35 states, nine distribution centers and 88,600 employees. The first Dollar General store opened June 1, 1955, in Springfield, Ky. Dollar General stock is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol DG.

Renovation yields prehistoric artifactsFORT LAUDERDALE Archaeologists have discovered evidence of prehistoric Indians and European explorers living in the Fort Lauderdale area hundreds of years ago. Among the items found so far: pieces of clay pottery; remnants of lead that had been melted for musket balls and conch cells used for food and tools. The archaeologists also uncovered indications of a small Tequesta Indian village near a parking lot being renovated near the Bahia Mar resort. Construction crews were planting trees and archaeologists working ahead of them found artifacts about a foot under the old pavement.

For the RECORD HOW YOUR LAWMAKERS VOTEDKey votes for the week ending: July 22 By Voterama in Congress Cut, Cap, Balance: Members voted, 234-190, to prohibit Congress from raising the national-debt ceiling until it has first passed a balanced-budget constitutional amendment. A yes vote was to pass a Republican cut, cap and balance bill (HR 2560) that also made deep spending cuts over 10 years while not raising taxes. Rich Nugent, Yes. Veterans' Benefits: Members defeated, 188-236, a bid by Democrats to protect veterans' benefits from being trimmed in the $5.8 trillion, 10year budget-cutting plan imposed by HR 2560 (above). A yes vote backed the motion over GOP arguments that the plan already protected veteran's benefits in full. Nugent, No. Consumer Protection Bureau: Members voted, 241-173, to make it easier for a Treasury oversight board to block actions by the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. A yes vote was to pass a bill (HR 1315) enabling the board to kill rules by majority votes instead of the two-thirds majorities now required. Nugent, Yes. Seniors' Consumer Protections: Members defeated,183-232, a stipulation by Democrats that HR 1315 (above) could not block Consumer Financial Protection Bureau rules to protect seniors' assets and benefits against those who prey on the elderly. A yes vote was to adopt the motion. Nugent, No. Veterans, Military Projects: Senators approved, 97-2, $58.6 billion in 2012 appropriations for the Department of Veterans Affairs, including $2.99 billion for medical care for 537,000 Iraq-Afghanistan veterans now in the VA health system. A yes vote was to pass HR 2055, which also appropriates $13.7 billion for military-construction projects. Bill Nelson, Yes; Marco Rubio, Yes. Cut, Cap, Balance: Senators voted, 51-46, to block a GOP cut, cap and balance bill to sharply reduce spending by 2021, prohibit tax increases over ten years and link any rise in the national-debt ceiling this year to Congress passing a balanced-budget constitutional amendment. A yes vote was to kill the bill (HR 2560). Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. Key votes ahead: In the week of July 25, both chambers will debate fiscal 2012 appropriations bills and may take up shortor long-term increases in the national-debt ceiling. 2011 Thomas Reports Inc. Call: (202) 667-9760. QUESTION: Would 500 rock trucks daily traversing U.S. 19, from and to the Tarmac King Road Mine in Levy County, create problems? Yes. But dont expect the DOT to require a bypass or the widening of U.S. 19 until after its a disaster. 13 percent (10 votes) No. People are overreacting. 29 percent (22 votes) Yes. And Citrus County should join the legal effort to halt the mine. 47 percent (35 votes) No. And it will actually be good for restaurants and stores along the route. 11 percent (8 votes) Total votes: 75.

Associated PressThe cost of prescription medicines used by millions of people every day is about to plummet. The next 14 months will bring generic versions of seven of the worlds 20 bestselling drugs, including the top two: cholesterol fighter Lipitor and blood thinner Plavix. The magnitude of this wave of expiring drugs patents is unprecedented. Between now and 2016, blockbusters with about $255 billion in global annual sales are set to go off patent, notes EvaluatePharma Ltd., a London research firm. Generic competition will decimate sales of the brandname drugs and slash the cost to patients and companies that provide health benefits. Top drugs getting generic competition by September 2012 are taken by millions every day: Lipitor alone is taken by about 4.3 million Americans and Plavix by 1.4 million. Generic versions of big-selling drugs for blood pressure, asthma, diabetes, depression, high triglycerides, HIV and bipolar disorder also are coming by then. The flood of generics will continue for the next decade or so, as about 120 brand-name prescription drugs lose market exclusivity, according to prescription benefit manager Medco Health Solutions Inc. My estimation is at least 15 percent of the population is currently using one of the drugs whose patents will expire in 2011 or 2012, says Joel Owerbach, chief pharmacy officer for Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield, which serves most of upstate New York. Those patients, along with businesses and taxpayers who help pay for prescription drugs through corporate and government prescription plans, collectively will save a small fortune. Thats because generic drugs typically cost 20 percent to 80 percent less than the brand names. Doctors hope the lower prices will significantly reduce the number of people jeopardizing their health because they cant afford medicines they need. Dr. Nieca Goldberg, director of The Womens Heart Program at NYU Langone Medical Center in Manhattan, worries about patients who are skipping checkups and halving pills to pare costs. You can pretty much tell by the numbers when I check the patients blood pressure or cholesterol levels, that theyve not taken their medications as often as prescribed, she says. Even people with private insurance or Medicare arent filling all their prescriptions, studies show, particularly for cancer drugs with copays of hundreds of dollars or more. The new generics will slice copayments of those with insurance. For the uninsured, who have been paying full price, the savings will be much bigger. Daly Powers, 25, an uninsured student who works two part-time jobs at low wages, says he often cant afford the $220 a month for his depression and attention deficit disorder pills. He couldnt buy either drug in June and says hes struggling with his Spanish class and his emotions. He looks forward to his antidepressant, Lexapro, going generic early next year. Itd make all the difference in the world, says Powers, of Bryan, Texas. Generic medicines are chemically equivalent to the original brand-name drugs and work just as well for nearly all patients. When a drug loses patent protection, often only one generic version is on sale for the first six months, so the price falls a little bit initially. Then, several other generic makers typically jump in, driving prices down dramatically. Last year, the average generic prescription cost $72, versus $198 for the average brand-name drug, according to consulting firm Wolters Kluwer Pharma Solutions. Average copayments last year were $6 for generics, compared with $24 for brandname drugs given preferred status by an insurer and $35 for nonpreferred brands, according to IMS Health. Among the drugs that recently went off patent, Protonix, for severe heartburn, now costs just $16 a month for the generic, versus about $170 for the brand name. And of the top sellers that soon will have competition, Lipitor retails for about $150 a month, Plavix costs almost $200 a month and blood pressure drug Diovan costs about $125 a month. For those with drug coverage, their out-of-pocket costs for each of those drugs could drop below $10 a month. Generic Lipitor should hit pharmacies Nov. 30 and cost around $10 each a month. For people with no prescription coverage, the coming savings on some drugs could be much bigger. Many discount retailers and grocery chains sell the most popular generics for $5 a month or less to draw in shoppers. The impact of the coming wave of generics will be widespread and swift. The looming revenue drop is changing the economics of the industry. In the 1990s, big pharmaceutical companies were wildly successful at creating pills that millions of people take every day for common conditions, from heart disease and diabetes to osteoporosis and chronic pain. Double-digit quarterly profit increases became the norm. But the patents on those blockbusters, which were filed years before the drugs went on sale, last for 20 years at most, and many expire soon. In recent years, many drug companies have struggled to develop new blockbuster drugs, despite multibilliondollar research budgets and more partnerships with scientists at universities and biotech companies. The dearth of successes, partly because the easy treatments have already been found, has turned the shortterm prognosis for big pharma anemic. For patients, its a godsend. Douglas Torok, 59, of Erie, Pa., now spends nearly $290 every three months for insulin for his Type 2 diabetes, plus four daily pills, including Lipitor, Plavix and two generics, for his blood pressure and cholesterol problems. The $40,000-a-year foundry supervisor fears not being able to cover the out-ofpocket costs when he retires and doesnt have a generous prescription plan. In the meantime, once Lipitor and Plavix get generic competition his copayment will plunge from the current $1 per day for each. I will pay $16 for 90 days for both, says Torok, who hopes to travel more. Its a big deal for me on my income. Lynden LaVere, 63INVERNESS Lynden Denny LaVere, 63, Inverness, died July 22, 2011.

Associated PressWASHINGTON The FBI is just cranking up a preliminary review of whether alleged phone hacking and bribery by Rupert Murdochs media empire violated U.S. laws, but any resolution may well have to await the outcome of British investigations. The FBIs early fact-gathering could turn into a long saga that tests or reinforces the long-standing cooperation between U.S. and British law enforcement. Most of the records and witnesses to prove or disprove the allegations are in the hands of British investigators. The problem for Murdoch is that his business, not just his now-shuttered British tabloid News of the World, faces investigations on two continents. That includes a nascent FBI probe. Depending upon what turns up, it could head in unexpected directions, perhaps threatening other Murdoch properties, which include the Fox television network. News Corp., Murdochs New York-headquartered parent company, is assembling a gold-plated roster of lawyers to deal with any U.S. legal action. According to published reports, the company has signed up Brendan Sullivan, the high-priced Washington criminal defense attorney, and Mark Mendelsohn, an acknowledged expert on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Sullivan is famous for defending Oliver North against Iran-Contra scandal charges and Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, against corruption counts. Mendelsohn ran the Justice Department unit that enforced the anti-foreign-bribery statute from 2005 to 2010. News Corp., Sullivan and Mendelsohnwould not confirm the hirings. For now, U.S. investigators are not only looking at the phone hacking and bribery allegations, but also kicking the tires on any other allegations against Murdoch entities that appear in print or even old court records. That includes reviewing old allegations from a civil lawsuit that a unit of News Corp. hacked into computers of a small advertising competitor in New Jersey and obtained confidential information it used lure away clients. Separately, the FBI plans to question actor Jude Law about allegations his phone was hacked while he was in the U.S., according to the BBC. Law has sued the Murdochowned Sun tabloid for allegedly hacking into Laws voicemail for stories about his private life. The allegation about phone hacking in the U.S. rests on a single news story in the Daily Mirror a London tabloid rival to Murdochs The Sun A former New York police officerturned-private investigator, not identified by name, said hed been contacted by News of the Worldjournalists who offered to him to retrieve private phone records of victims in the Sept. 11 attacks in the U.S. According to the story, the ex-officer claimed reporters wanted the victims phone numbers and details of calls they had made and received in the days before the 2001 attacks, particularly those of British victims. The U.S.-based parent company of Murdochs operations, News Corp., said that we have not seen any evidence to suggest there was any hacking of 9/11 victims phones, nor has anybody corroborated what are clearly very serious allegations. The story arose when an unidentified person speculated to the Daily Mirror about whether it happened. That paper printed the anonymous speculation, which has since mushroomed in the broader media with no substantiation. Though reports of British journalists paying police for tips and information go back years, the practice is a crime in that country and British police are promising a crackdown. That investigation would be an exclusively British matter, except for the long reach of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. That postWatergate U.S. law has been used to prosecute U.S. companies that pay bribes to foreign officials to win business, usually foreign government contracts. News Corp. has its headquarters in New York. In a statement Friday, News Corp. said that it had not seen any indication of a connection or similarity between the events, allegations and practices being investigated in the U.K. and News Corps U.S. properties. If the U.S. financial records of News Corp. concealed payoffs by News of the World to police and someone at the U.S. parent company condoned it, that could well be a crime under the law, and one the British arent pursuing. That part of the law is designed to protect U.S. stockholders and investors, but any U.S. prosecution would have to wait until the British had first proved there were bribes.

Associated PressGRAND PRAIRIE, Texas The owner of a Texas skating rink said Sunday he pushed children out of harms way when a parent suddenly opened fire on his estranged wife and her relatives at their sons birthday party. The Saturday night shootings that left six dead, including the gunman, lasted just moments, said Forum Roller World owner Walt Hedrick. Kids were having fun and all of a sudden: Bang! Bang! Bang! Hedrick said. It was out of the clear blue. ... I didnt know what was going on. The gunman, whose son was celebrating his 11th birthday, ordered the children to leave the snack area before he began shooting, said Grand Prairie detective John Brimmer. No children were killed, but four people were wounded in addition to the adults who died, he said. Police said Tan Do, 35, of Grand Prairie and his wife were having ongoing marriage problems that investigators believe led to the shootings about 7 p.m. Saturday at the skating rink in Grand Prairie, about 20 miles west of Dallas. Some people at nearby businesses said they watched as some adults and children spilled from the rink in horror, some wearing roller skates. They just looked terrified, Cody Poston, a witness, told WFAA-TV, outside the rink that was festooned with birthday decorations inside. Theres several people crying. The kids were just kind of oblivious. Dos son and his other child are safe and with other relatives, Brimmer said. Police identified those killed as Dos estranged wife Trini Do, 29, of Grand Prairie; her sisters Lynn Ta, 16, and Michelle Ta, 28; her brother, Hien Ta, 21; and her sister-in-law, Thuy Nguyen, 25. Brimmer said about 30 friends and relatives were attending the birthday party, some from out of town. B EN F ELLER AP White House CorrespondentWASHINGTON With bipartisan talks stalled, House Republicans and Senate Democrats readied rival debt-limit emergency fallback plans in hopes of reassuring world financial markets on Monday the U.S. government will avoid an unprecedented default in barely a week. House Speaker John Boehner summoned rank-and-file conservative lawmakers in a Sunday-afternoon conference call to be ready for compromise that is going to require some of you to make some sacrifices. He said the new legislation, expected to be unveiled as early as Monday morning, would cut federal spending, raise the governments borrowing authority and be able to clear both houses of Congress, according to one official familiar with his remarks on the call. Officials said that plan was likely to provide for an immediate increase in the debt limit of $1 trillion, while making somewhat larger cuts in federal spending. Additional spending reductions and greater borrowing authority would depend on future action by Congress a two-step process that Obama has ruled out. Across the Capitol, Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid worked on an alternative to cut spending by $2.7 trillion and increase the debt limit by $2.4 trillion enough to satisfy Obamas demand that the current crisis not recur before the 2012 elections. Reid said the plan meets Republicans two main criteria spending cuts greater in size than the increase in borrowing authority and no new revenue. The events unfolded in a crisis atmosphere in a sweltering city swarming with summertime tourists a little more than a week before an Aug. 2 deadline for action by Congress to raise the governments $14.3 trillion debt limit. Without action by that date, the Treasury will be unable to pay all its bills, possibly triggering a default that could have severe consequences for the U.S. economy and the worlds, too. Officials and many stockholders were holding their breath to see how the uncertain situation would affect financial markets in the U.S. and around the world as they opened after the weekend of crisis negotiations. Early results from Asian markets showed no major swings. Obama spoke with Boehner by phone during the day, then met with Reid and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi at the White House. At the same time, several officials said leadership aides spent Sunday trying to produce a compromise that could quickly clear both houses. One official, speaking on condition of anonymity, portrayed the Democrats White House meeting as an unsuccessful attempt to persuade Obama to accept a two-step he has said he wont agree to. There were numerous suggestions of progress both Boehner and Reid now support plans without immediate increases in government revenue but no announced compromise. Similarly, the precise elements of the rival fallback plans were sketchy. Boehners revised measure would fall far short of a House-passed bill that was rejected in the Senate late last week. It had called for raising the debt limit on condition of $6 trillion in spending cuts and congressional approval of a constitutional balanced budget amendment for state ratification. Reids office declined to provide any details of his alternative, except to say it would cut $2.7 trillion in spending over a decade without any tax increases. Any sum that large would require either cuts to benefit programs that aides said Reid preferred to leave untouched, or savings from the Pentagon, possibly by assuming the end of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It appeared the White House was largely consigned to a spectators role. Asked what the administrations plan was to avoid default, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said, Our plan is to get Congress to raise the debt ceiling on time. The state of play veered between bipartisanship and brinkmanship on an issue of immense economic consequences. Despite hours of compromise talks in the Capitol, lawmakers aides had so far been unable to agree on a two-step plan that would satisfy Obamas demand for a large enough increase in the debt limit to tide the Treasury over until after the 2012 elections. White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley said anything short of that would be a gimmick and prompt the world to say: These people just cant get their act together.N ATIONC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, J ULY25, 2011 A7 To place your Bingo ads, call 563-3231 648072 0008L3Y Eihab H Tawfik, MD Board Certified in Internal Medicine Anita Grabowski, ARNP What is an Insulin Pump?

The foundation alleges that the special law is unconstitutional because it retroactively impairs the foundations contractual rights in violation of Florida Constitution and the due process clause of the Florida Constitution, Fulford wrote at the beginning of the order to explain the foundations basis for seeking the injunction. The order outlined the background of the dispute. The hospital board of trustees is a special district set up in 1949 to operate the hospital. However, in 1987, the foundation became incorporated as a private, notfor-profit entity under Chapter 617 of the Florida Statutes, to raise charitable contributions and to enter into joint ventures that the trustees, as a public entity, could not do. The foundation filed articles of incorporation, adopted bylaws, filed annual reports, maintained corporate records, filed tax returns and otherwise complied with Florida Statutes. Under the original articles of incorporation, the trustees had majority control on the foundations board of directors. But the articles provided that they could be amended only by the foundation. On a date, Nov. 27, 1989, when the trustees had majority control of the foundation, all members unani mously approved an amendment to the articles of incorporation to establish that the trustees no longer were entitled to constitute a majority on the foundations board of directors. The foundation made this amendment before it leased the hospital from the board. Three of the five trustees were present at the Nov. 27, 1989, meeting, and all three voted in favor to cede their majority. The other two trustees were not present. Since that time, the trustees have not had the right to sit as a majority on the foundations board. After ceding their control, the trustees leased the hospital to the foundation on March 1, 1990. The foundation and the trustees also executed an agreement for hospital care. The trustees reasons for doing this were to allow the foundation to achieve cost savings by opting out of the public retirement program and to give the foundation greater flexibility when competing with private hospitals by providing an array of services through joint ventures under one corporate umbrella. The trustees are obliged to fund a portion of the foundations operational and capital needs, according to the lease and the agreement. These contracts also govern the procedures for financial review and oversight by the trustees and the restrictions on the foundations use of tax funding provided by the trustees. The lease and agreement do not expire until 2033. The foundation then has a 45year renewal option. The trustees can terminate these contracts only if certain specified events of default take place. The contracts can be amended only by mutual agreement. The hospital care agreement places no limitation on the foundations use of funds generated from the operation of the hospital and sources other than the trustees. According to the foundations argument, Section 16 of the new law overrides the provisions of its existing contracts with the trustees. The new law would provide that the trustees would constitute the majority on the foundations board. The trustees, under the new law, would approve all current foundation directors, bylaws and articles of incorporation. In essence, these new provisions grant (the trustees) control over all the foundations revenues, not just (the trustees) taxfunded appropriations, the order stated. In contrast, the agreement places no limitation on the foundations use of funds generated from the operation of the hospital and sources other than the (trustees). Funds from such other sources constitute the majority of the foundations budget. To enter a temporary injunction, a court would consider the likelihood of success on the merits, the likelihood of irreparable harm, whether the requested injunction would serve the public interest and the availability of an adequate remedy at law. These four criteria were covered. According to the judges order, The foundation has a substantial likelihood of success on the merits. Florida courts have faithfully enforced constitutional prohibition against impairment of contract. Second, The foundation will suffer irreparable harm in the absence of an injunction, without adequate remedy at law. The status quo would be dramatically altered when the new law takes effect, because the foundation would lose its existing right to have a majority of directors on the foundation board. It would lose the operation flexibility under Florida Statute that similar hospitals enjoy. Third, A temporary injunction serves the public interest. The requested temporary injunction would serve the public interest by promoting the sanctity of contracts with public entities. According to the judges order, If the Legislature can step in to alter the contractual arrangement in this case in favor of (the trustees), it can step in to alter or abrogate any number of public contracts with private entities throughout a variety of industries. This would discourage private entities from contracting with the government for a variety of services that are valuable to the public. Fourth, seeking an adequate remedy, the matter is set for trial at 7:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 27, in Tallahassee. Section 16 of the new law would not yet take effect. The foundation was ordered to post a bond in cash or surety in the amount of $1 million. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at (352) 564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com.

Associated PressHARTFORD, Conn. For Ensign Peggy LeGrand, the biggest concern about serving on a submarine is not spending weeks at a time in tight quarters with an entirely male crew. What worries her is the scrutiny that comes with breaking one of the last gender barriers in the U.S. military. I have a feeling more people will be focused on us. Our mistakes and successes will be magnified more than they deserve, said LeGrand, a 25-year-old Naval Academy graduate from Amarillo, Texas. LeGrand is among a small group of female officers who are training at sites including Groton, Conn., to join the elite submarine force beginning later this year. While the Navy says it is not treating them any differently from their male counterparts, officials have been working to prepare the submarine crews and the sailors wives for one of the most dramatic changes in the 111-year history of the Navys silent service. The initial class of 24 women will be divided among four submarines, where they will be outnumbered by men by a ratio of roughly 1 to 25. The enlisted ranks, which make up about 90 percent of a subs 160-sailor crew, are not open to women although the Navy is exploring modifications to create separate bunks for men and women. The female officers, many of them engineering graduates from Annapolis, are accustomed to being in the minority, and so far they say they hardly feel like outsiders. The nuclear power school that is part of their training, for example, has been open to women for years because the Navy in 1994 reversed a ban on females serving on its surface ships, including nuclear-powered vessels. At the U.S. Navys submarine school in Groton, where eight women were among dozens who recently completed the 10-week officer basic course, Ensign Kristin Lyles said the presence of the first class of females bound for submarine duty was not even remarked upon at this months graduation ceremony. I understand the reason why. It was never explained but it was kind of implied that while were going through training, as soon as they started calling attention to it in that way, its singling us out, said Lyles, 23, of Fairfax Station, Va. In my experience, I am no different from the guy sitting next to me in all my classes. A submarine group spokesman, Lt. Brian Wierzbicki, said the Navy would not facilitate photographs or interviews with the female submariners because it does not want to distract them from training or make them feel different from their male peers. The female officers will report to their submarines starting in late November or early December. All of the vessels are guided-missile attack submarines or ballisticmissile submarines, which are relatively large by submarine standards. They are the USS Wyoming and USS Georgia, based in Kings Bay, Ga., and the USS Maine and USS Ohio, with their home port in Bangor, Wash. On submarines with corridors barely wide enough for sailors to brush past one another, the six female officers on board will all share a stateroom. Their shifts will be divided so that women are assigned to each subs two rotating crews. The lone bathroom for officers will have a reversible sign, letting men know that its in use by women and vice versa. LeGrand said she is not concerned about being outnumbered. Space is at a premium and everyone has no space. You just get over it and do your job, she said in a phone interview. She said she is thrilled at the opportunity to join the close-knit submarine community, but she does not dwell on being a barrierbreaker. Every now and then I think about it and yeah, its pretty cool, but ultimately Im just happy I get chance to serve on a sub, she said. The change is a source of anxiety for others, including the wives of submariners, who worry the close contact at sea could lead to sailors cheating. The issue really has to do with the creation of a relationship that becomes very close and then results in further relations ashore. That is, of course, what bothers the wives. They know the kind of relationships that happen between the shipmates, said retired Navy Rear Adm. W.J. Holland Jr., a former submarine commander. Although Holland said commanders would be reluctant to have women on their subs, he said the Navy pulled off a more daunting challenge last year by outlawing smoking on submarines. The crews can adapt, he said. The Navy reversed the ban on women in submarines in April 2010. In the fall, when officials announced the first subs selected to take on female officers, senior leaders held town hall meetings with the crews and their families to address their concerns. Wierz bicki, the Navy spokesman, said training has been provided to the crews and commanding officers to prepare them for the change. Submarines had been the last class of military vessel off-limits to women. Navy officials say one lesson they learned from integrating surface ships is to make the transition gradually. The Navy wants to make sure it is aware of any potential issues that might arise, according to Lt. Cmdr. Jean Sullivan, chief of the naval personnels office of womens policy. There are going to be leadership challenges and maturity challenges anyone would face in their first job. There is just a spotlight on it because theyre the first on submarines, Sullivan said. The chairwoman of the Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services, retired Army Lt. Gen. Claudia Kennedy, told a committee meeting last month that one risk is that men could feel constrained and resent the presence of women. One of the issues around women being integrated is this thought that, Oh, now because youre here, we cant do XYZ, Kennedy said. And that creates a greater sense of isolation and exclusion for women. The Navy is looking into bringing women aboard the smaller, Virginia-class attack subs, which would require reconfigurations to accommodate men and women together. LeGrand said the diverse missions of the attack subs would be appealing, but the larger submarines are just fine with her. As a semi-professional cyclist, shes hoping to serve on a sub large enough to bring aboard a stationary bike.

Associated PressHAVANA Each morning before the sun rises too high, Cubans gather at a shaded corner in central Havana, mingling as though at a cocktail party. The icebreaker is always the same: What are you offering? This is Cubas informal real-estate bazaar, where a chronic housing shortage brings everyone from newlyweds to retirees together to strike deals that often involve thousands of dollars in under-the-table payments. Theyre breaking not just the law but communist doctrine by trading and profiting in property, and now their government is about to get in on the action. President Raul Castro has pledged to legalize the purchase and sale of homes by the end of the year, bringing this informal market out of the shadows as part of an economic reform package under which Cuba is already letting islanders go into business for themselves in 178 designated activities, as restaurateurs, wedding planners, plumbers, carpenters. An aboveboard housing market promises multiple benefits for the cash-strapped island: It would help ease a housing crunch, stimulate construction employment and generate badly needed tax revenue. It would attack corruption by officials who accept bribes to sign off on illicit deals, and give people options to seek peaceful resolutions to black-market disputes that occasionally erupt into violence. Its also likely to suck up more hard currency from Cubans abroad who can be counted on to send their families cash to buy, expand and remodel homes, especially since President Barack Obama relaxed the 50-year-old economic embargo to allow unlimited remittances by Cuban-Americans. All these things are tied in, said Sergio Diaz-Briquets, a U.S.-based demography expert. They want expatriate Cubans to contribute money to the Cuban state, and this is one big incentive for people who want to help their families. But few changes are likely to be as complex and hard to implement as real estate reform. From the earliest days of the revolution, Fidel Castro railed against exploitative, absentee landlords, and enacted a reform that gave property ownership to whoever lived in a home, regardless of who held title. Most who have left the island forfeited their properties to the state. The government, Castro preached, would provide everything a citizen could need: employment, food, education and housing, all for little or no money at all. But the housing stock, already run down before the revolution, continued to deteriorate, the U.S. embargo choked off the supply of building materials, and new construction failed to keep pace with demand. Meanwhile, cyclones and salty air can start eating through metal bars in a year and have decimated rural shanties and older quarters of Havana. Empty lots dot the capitals seaside Malecon boulevard as oncestately mansions regularly collapse following heavy rains. Many of those still standing are merely facades or are propped up by scaffolding and wooden beams. While they wait for the new law to be enacted and the specifics to be announced, Cubans have few legal options. They can enroll in cooperative construction projects, build on existing properties or join the long waiting list for government housing. Or they can head to the open-air real-estate market in hopes of negotiating a permuta, which officially is a swap of equal-value properties but in reality usually involves illegal cash on the side. Some Cubans enter into sham marriages to make deed transfers easier. Others move into homes ostensibly to care for an elderly person living there. They register at the address and, after enough time passes, can legally claim the inherited title. Nowhere is there an official record of the money changing hands.

Page A10 MONDAY, JULY 25, 2011 Cut legislators payCome August, it will be interesting to see what lies will come from our leadership, to not default. Perhaps in their thinking, parents will not send their children to school and maybe make them work, since school funds are going to be cut. Possibly they hope the elderly will go back in the workforce. Social Security recipients did make this country rich, back when. All these baby boomers working, making all those tax dollars to continue supporting our leaderships perks, salaries, health insurance, auto insurance, life insurance, traveling expenses and parties, special interest groups, and the wealthiest! Yea, our government seems to think We the People dont know who really caused this huge deficit, so they cut every program like Social Security, Medicare, maybe even the militarys paychecks, crying poverty to the most venerable individuals and families, but they still give out grants, send aid to Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Libya and continue searches for weapons of mass destruction? Sure, we still have immigrant programs, hand out money to many who have never worked, paid taxes or supported any community, but government thinks its important to threaten the very true Americans that contributed the most wealth to this country. I would like to know how much deduction representatives have had in their salaries since the recession. There should be a cost of living reduction for everyone based on a certain percentage of minimum wages. We have a cost of living raise, for most, when things are great, so why not a diminution, when things arent so dandy? Instead, unemployment, interest rates, transportation costs, food prices and this list of rising items are exhausting. If government is going to set this country back to the 1950s, then its income should match the declining wealth, as it has for everyone else. The same goes for large companies, and the buck shouldnt stop for just the stock room workers. If we are to survive the manufactured debt announced by elected officials, we need to let government know we will not stand for any more lies and demand the first cut to avoid default should come out of their paychecks.

Special thanks to: Barbara Rosenblatt, Hazel, Heather, Karen, Rosalie and the girls and guys from the 24-7 hospice care. We love each and every one of you. The Cotton Family Homosassa A few words on what Fox News is. The question has, of course, been debated forever. Fox says it is, as the name would suggest, a news network. Its critics say it is actually the propaganda arm of the Republican Party and that its highest loyalty is not to accuracy, fairness or other journalistic values but to the furtherance of the party line. Not that any sentient life form should need the help, but events have recently arranged themselves such as to make painfully obvious which view is truth and which is tripe. As it happens, one of the biggest news stories of the past few weeks has been the phone-hacking scandal that now ensnares media baron Rupert Murdoch. For those who somehow missed it, it involves revelations that reporters at Murdochs News of the WorldBritish tabloid routinely paid police sources for information and hacked into peoples cellphones, including that of a murdered 13-year-old girl. Thats led to the shutdown of the 168-year-old newspaper, a spate of resignations and arrests, hearings in Parliament, rumored hearings in Congress and criminal investigations here and in the UK. This story is a gift from the news gods, and any news organization worthy of the name would jump on it like a trampoline. Most have. Fox has not. The Pew Research Centers Project for Excellence in Journalism just surveyed reportage of the story in two time frames: July 6 to 8 and 11 to 15. In that period, according to Pew, CNN devoted almost 170 minutes to the story, MSNBC about 145. Fox? About 30. That bears repeating: One of the biggest stories of the summer gets, over the course of six days, a half-hour of attention from Fox News. Now, let us be fair and balanced here. Fox is owned by Murdoch, and the last thing any news organization wants is to be in the awkward position of reporting on itself. To have to air that which might embarrass or damage colleagues or bosses is the definition of a no-win situation, especially since there will always be doubts, from within and without, about your ability to do so fairly. But when professionalism demands, this is what you do. When CBS News report on President George W. Bushs service in the Texas Air National Guard turned out not to be credible, CBS reported it. When Jayson Blair hoodwinked and humiliated the New York Times, the New York Timesreported it. When NPR was mortified by a deceptively edited hidden camera sting, NPR reported it. Foxs failure to report and allow viewers to decide speaks volumes and offers a definitive answer to the question of what Fox is. It is the nations leading manufacturer of false outrage and fake fury War on Christmas! War on Christmas! the top supplier of bogeymen for those who need to feel terrorized in order to feel alive. It is Americas No. 1 distributor of misinformation (Hide Nana! The death panels are coming!), a warehouse of conspiracy theories, junk history and dubious facts given credit by virtually no one who does not watch Fox. It is a noisemaker, a box of cacophony from which reason will seldom emerge unscathed. And it is a bovine excreta machine. But a news organization? No. That is a designation you have to earn.

HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member Loaned money not the way to fund our wars P oliticians from both sides of the aisle are standing in the way of a deal to raise the debt ceiling and cut the deficit, which if not done by next week could be disastrous for Wall Street. The United States government begins defaulting on its obligations on Aug. 2 and if that happens, the stock market and its investors could face a disastrous turn; possibly prolonging the current economic malaise. The deal-making has been pushed behind closed doors because of the rancorous nature of the battle for some middle ground. Republicans and Democrats have each participated in their fair share of ideological trench warfare and fingerpointing. Recent polls show Americans want a deal done before Aug. 2, fearing an economic crisis if it doesnt happen. Those same polls show a high number between 58 percent and 77 percent blame both parties for the impasse and want the bickering to stop. Many now believe politicians in Washington are more concerned about re-election than the welfare of the country. Our current deficit crisis is a direct result of the changing sense of American fiscal responsibility buy now, pay later. Our country entered into, and continues, two wars with no plan on how to pay except to borrow money from China. Because of this, we politicians and American citizens have not felt the economic crunch nor have we experienced the sacrifice war exacts. The only sacrifice paid by this country has been the loss of lives that only a small percentage of families across the United States have had to face. Everyone wants something for nothing these days. It is time for all to pay the sacrifice in dollars for those wars. If that means deep spending cuts coupled with raising taxes and restructuring the corrupt tax code, then so be it. It is time those in Washington step up and make the tough decisions they were elected to make and stop passing the buck to the next generation. Americans are tired of partisan bickering and the self-centered nature of Washington politics. It is time our representatives in Congress stop worrying about self-preservation and started worrying about what is best for the country.

A thousand lives savedOn behalf of the blood drive ministry of Our Lady of Grace church and the Knights of Columbus Abbot Francis Sadlier Council #6168, we wish to thank everyone who participated in our Help One Another blood drive which was Saturday, July 16. We collected 69 pints of blood, which was our third-largest drive beaten only by our Matt Curley Memorial Blood Drive in September 2010, with 72 pints, and 70 pints at the Abbot Fidelis drive in the 1990s. The grand total for our six drives of the year (one every two months) was 351 pints an average of 58.5 pints per drive. Based on the statistics supplied by LifeSouth Community Blood Center, one pint of blood saves three lives. This means that our 351 pints helped to save 1,053 lives. We hope that you are as proud of yourselves as we are of you. You are definitely a caring community! We didnt do it alone. We got great support from everyone at the Citrus County Chronicle at the Visitor, radio station WRZN-720 AM, Our Lady of Grace staff and church bulletin, Laurel Ridge Leaf Publication as well as the 3rd degree Knights and 4th degree Knights monthly newsletters and all of the caring members of both Our Lady of Grace parish and our own Knights of Columbus Council #6168. Don Irwin Blood Drive Ministry of Our Lady of Grace and Knights of Columbus #6168 Keep government close The best governance is closest to the people and the issues. When representatives make a decision where all the stakeholders have been heard from, the result is the most representative law. Enforcement, while necessary, becomes less of an issue, as enforcement will come through peer pressure and common practice. When you are an appointed, local representative of a national bureaucracy, or an elected official, you have to wake up in the morning to come face-to-face with your neighbor and constituency.Bob Mercer Crystal River A private rightThe right to bear arms is important to every American, though many will never choose to own firearms. William C. Young (July 12) believes physicians/health care professionals should be allowed to delve into the private lives of patients in their care. This is ludicrous and a major privacy invasion. If I was to be asked about personal ownership of a gun by someone I do not know, I doubt I would answer honestly and I would go elsewhere for medical treatment. Mr. Young, do you actually believe that people considering suicide would use only a firearm to end their lives? Should physicians also ask about ownership of drugs, prescription or otherwise? Vehicles that could be driven off a cliff or into trees? Knives? Razors to slash wrists? Ropes to hang oneself? Sadly, I have been close to several people who have taken their own lives while under the care of medical professionals. These now-deceased individuals used various means to put an end to their unbearable strife without pulling a trigger. As far as the AK-47, AR-15, UZI, handguns, rifles and shotguns, I believe none of these weapons should be banned or restricted. Criminals do not purchase registered firearms. They will obtain their guns as always, black-marketed or stolen. A legally owned firearm by a patient is not the doctors business, nor is it your or my business. Hunters, shootists (competitors), collectors, dealers it matters not. I will defend my right to bear arms because I am a proud American and this is my personal and most private right.

Gineo won the Papa Hemingway LookAlike contest late Saturday at Sloppy Joes Bar. It was the 12th try for Gineo, a 64-year-old Jensen Beach biomedical engineer who bested 120 other entrants. Chickenpox deaths plummet post-vaccine ATLANTA Chickenpox vaccine has dramatically cut deaths from the disease, especially in children, states a new government study proclaiming an important public health victory. Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that chickenpox deaths fell from an average of 105 per year to 14 after the vaccine had been available for a dozen years. The report was released online Monday by the journal Pediatrics. In 1995, the government first recommended that all children get a dose of chickenpox vaccine. One dose turned out to be about 86 percent effective. A second dose is now recommended. Wreckage removal Associated Press A derailed train car is removed from a bridge Sunday as workers clear up the wreckage after a train accident in Wenzhou in east Chinas Zhejiang province. A bullet train crashed into another high-speed train Saturday, killing dozens of people and again raising safety concerns about the countrys fast-expanding rail network. Strong earthquake jolts N.E. Japan NEW YORK The U.S. Geological Survey reported a strong earthquake jolted northeast Japan, the same region devastated by Marchs quake and tsunami. There were no immediate re ports of injuries or damage, andno tsunami warning was in effect. The USGS said the magnitude 6.2-quake struck at 3:51 a.m. Monday and was centered at a depth of 22.1 miles in the Pacific Ocean, 59 miles east of Fukushima prefecture. The epicenter is 175 miles northeast of Tokyo. On Saturday afternoon, a magnitude-6.4 quake struck in the same area off the east coast of Honshu. About 23,000 people died or were left missing across wide swaths of Japans northeast coastline after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. Another 80,000 have been forced to evacuate their homes because of the radiation threat from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS Associated PressNEW YORK Hundreds of gay couples dressed in formal suits and striped trousers, gowns and T-shirts recited vows in emotionchoked voices and triumphantly hoisted their long-awaited marriage certificates on Sunday as New York became the sixth and largest state to recognize same-sex weddings. Couples began saying I do at midnight from Niagara Falls to Long Island, though New York City became the sometimes raucous center of action by daybreak Sunday as couples waited on a sweltering day for the chance to exchange vows at the city clerks office. Thousands of protesters rallied in several cities around the state, a signal the long fight for recognition may not be over just yet. But a party atmosphere reigned in the lobby of the Manhattan clerks office, with cheers and applause breaking out whenever a couple was handed their white-and-blue wedding certificate. Balloons floated overhead. One couple wore matching kilts; another wore sparkly crowns. Children scurried up and down the lobby; workers with bullhorns called out the numbers of each couple. Poignant signs of pent-up emotion were common from couples who had in some cases waited for years to wed. Couples cried and voices quavered. Newlywed Douglas Robinson exclaimed, You bet your life I do! when asked if he would take Michael Elsasser as his spouse. The first couple to marry in Manhattan were Phyllis Siegel, 77, and Connie Kopelov, 85, who have been together for 23 years. Kopelov arrived in a wheelchair and stood with the assistance of a walker. During the service, Siegel wrapped her hand in Kopelovs hand and they both grasped the walker. Witnesses cheered and wiped away tears after the two women vowed to honor and cherish each other as spouses and then kissed. I am breathless. I almost couldnt breathe, Siegel said after the ceremony. Its mind-boggling. The fact thats its happening to us that we are finally legal and can do this like everyone else. Outside afterward, Siegel raised her arms exultantly as Kopelov, in the wheelchair, held out a marriage certificate. Associated Press Phyllis Siegel, 76, left, and Connie Kopelov, 84, both of New York, embrace Sunday after becoming the first same-sex couple to get married at the Manhattan City Clerks office. Hundreds of same-sex couples say I do in N.Y. Associated PressSIRAQULA, Afghanistan Shortly after the call to prayer resounded over the harvested poppy fields near Salaam Bazaar, two Taliban commanders were heard on their radios asking how their forces are doing. The number of Taliban fighters who respond varies, but in the last month a squad of U.S. Marines at a small patrol base here in northern Helmand province counted 80 to 100 different radio call signs. The fighters usually thank God for their fortunes, report their casualties and track movements by the Marines. Then, using secret numerical codes, the commanders deploy fighters to the mudwalled farming compounds surrounding the Marines base. Radio chatter picks up whenever Marines go on their daily patrols. On one recent day, the sound of men speaking in Pashto crackled over the Marines scanner five minutes after the troops left the base to conduct a patrol. As Helmands provincial capital of Lashkar Gah marked the official start of its transition from NATO to Afghan control on Wednesday, the fierce fighting in the market town of Siraqula served as a reminder the war is still on in what remains the countrys deadliest province for coalition forces. Lashkar Gah is one of five provincial capitals and two provinces that President Hamid Karzai deemed ready for Afghan control in the next several months. The transition to Afghan control will allow international military forces to slowly start withdrawing from Afghanistan. NATO intends these transition areas to be the leading edge of an emergent sovereign state capable of quelling the insurgency and providing for its citizens by the time the coalition completes the withdrawal of combat troops in 2014. It remains unclear, however, whether the modest security gains achieved in the provincial capital will expand to Taliban strongholds in northern Helmand, where U.S. Marines are still trying to pacify poppygrowing areas that are the insurgencys profit center. Residents routinely tell the Marines that they detest the insurgency but fear retribution if they cooperate with NATO forces. And all of them are aware the Taliban will be around long after the coalition leaves. Of the 30,000 coalition troops in Helmand, a number of Marines stationed in the province will leave by the end of the year, and others may shift to eastern Afghanistan where NATO officials say more international terrorists are based. Afghan handoff hampered by attacks Associated Press People pay tribute Sunday to victims of the twin attacks outside Oslo Cathedral. Associated PressOSLO, Norway The man blamed for killing at least 93 people during terrorist attacks on Norways government headquarters and an island retreat for young people wanted to trigger an anti-Muslim revolution in Norwegian society, his lawyer said Sunday. A chief surgeon treating the wounded from Fridays mass shooting, meanwhile, said he believes the attacker used special dum-dum bullets that cause massive internal injuries. The doctor told The Associated Press that the killers chosen ammo exploded inside the body. The manifesto that 32-year-old suspect Anders Behring Breivik published online ranted against Muslim immigration to Europe and vowed revenge on those indigenous Europeans whom he deemed had betrayed their heritage. The document said they would be punished for their treasonous acts. Police said they were analyzing the approximately 1,500-page document. They said it was published Friday shortly before the back-toback bomb and gun attacks. Breiviks lawyer, Geir Lippestad, said his client wrote the document alone. But parts of it were taken almost word for word from the writings of Unabomber Ted Kaczynski, who is serving a life sentence in federal prison in Colorado for mail bombs that killed three people and injured 23 others across the U.S. from the 1970s to the 1990s. The passages copied by Breivik appear in the first few pages of Kaczynskis manifesto. Breivik changed a Kaczynski screed on leftism and what he considered to be leftists feelings of inferiority mainly by substituting the words multiculturalism or cultural Marxism for leftism. Breivik did not cite Kaczynski. Police in Norway said they were investigating reports of a second assailant on the island, but the lawyer said Breivik claims no one helped him. Breiviks treatise detailed plans to acquire firearms and explosives, and even appeared to describe a test explosion: BOOM! The detonation was successful!!! It ends with a note dated 12:51 p.m. on July 22: I believe this will be my last entry. That day, a bomb killed seven people in downtown Oslo and, about 90 minutes later, a gunman opened fire on about 600 young people at a retreat on Utoya Island. Police said the death toll in the shooting rose by one Sunday to 86. That brings total fatalities to 93, with more than 90 wounded. People remain missing at both scenes. Police have not released the names of any victims. Officials at the lakeside scene of the island shooting spent Sunday continuing to account for the dead. In a chilling allusion to the fact that the tragedy could have even been greater, police said Sunday that Breivik still had a considerable amount of ammunition for both his guns a pistol and an automatic rifle when he surrendered. Breivik has been charged with terrorism and will be arraigned Monday. European security officials said they were aware of increased Internet chatter from individuals claiming they belonged to the Knights Templar group Breivik describes, in fantastical terms, in the manifesto. The two officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about the investigation. As authorities pursued the suspects motives, Oslo mourned the victims. Norways King Harald V and his wife Queen Sonja and Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg crowded into Oslo Cathedral, where the pews were packed, and people spilled into the plaza outside. The area was strewn with flowers and candles, and people who could not fit inside the grand church huddled under umbrellas amid drizzling rain. Afterward, people sobbed and hugged one another in the streets. Many lingered over the flowers and candles. The attacker picked targets linked to Norways left-wing Labor Party. Breiviks manifesto pilloried the political correctness of liberals and warned that their work would end in the colonization of Europe by Muslims. A boy throws a rose Sunday into the lake opposite to the island of Utoya in Norway. The man blamed for the terrorist attacks on Norways government headquarters and an island retreat for young people that left scores dead was motivated by a desire to bring about a revolution in Norwegian society, his lawyer said Sunday.

Martins 3-hit shutout clinches state championship R ICK H ARMON Sports correspondentNICEVILLE Sometimes a manager plays percentages. Sometimes, its just a gut feeling. For Crystal River Little League senior softball manager J.J. Gomez, it was the latter heading into Sundays state tournament final against Palm Bay. Following the teams semifinal win Saturday, Gomez said he planned to start his daughter, Danielle, in the championship game. But overnight, he changed his mind and went with Breanna Martin. It was the right decision as the right-hander threw a 3-hit shutout and retired the last 13 batters she faced as Crystal River won the game 3-0 and advances to the Southeast Region tournament later this week in Fort Myers. I just had a gut feeling, manager Gomez said. We had four other pitchers available but we decided to go with Breanna. Martin gave up back-to-back singles in the second with two outs but got out of the jam. Martin would yield a one-out bunt single in the third but catcher Ashley Meiman threw the runner out stealing. That would be the last runner Palm Bay would get. I tried to keep the ball low so they would hit fly balls, Martin said. I knew my defense would back me up. Martin only faced two over the minimum 21 batters. She didnt walk a hitter and only had three balls on two Palm Bay hitters. She forced 12 fly-ball outs and 8 ground outs. She threw 68 pitches 48 for strikes. As for the Crystal River offense, a two-out triple by Meagan McMichen in the fifth inning, followed by a walk to Cheyenne Phelps and a single by Meiman gave Crystal River a 1-0 lead. I really didnt think one run would be enough, Gomez said. But as it turned out, it was. Prior to finally getting on the board, Crystal River had left five runners on base. Twice they had second and third with no outs and couldnt score.

SWIMMING Phelps qualifies 5th in 200 free at worldsSHANGHAI American Ryan Lochte posted the fastest qualifying time in the 200-meter freestyle at the world championships, inserting himself into the rivalry between Michael Phelps and Paul Biedermann. Lochte was timed in 1 minute, 46.34 seconds to win his heat against Phelps on Monday. Im a little shaky, Lochte said. I kind of just wanted to have an easy swim but Michael was next to me and we were pushing each other. It was rough. Phelps advanced to the evening semifinals in fifth at 1:46.98 4.2 seconds off his best time. Ryan and I are going to be in the second heat tonight, so well see what its going to take to get top eight, Phelps said. I told him this morning, We have to go 47 to make it back. Phelps finished third in his heat behind Lochte and Sebastiaan Verschuren of the Netherlands, who was secondquickest overall in 1:46.53. Phelps led off the Americans 400 freestyle relay that earned a bronze on Sunday. I didnt think I was going that fast, he said. Im happy with that though, feeling how I did. Biedermann, the defending champion from Germany, qualified third at 1:46.56, followed by 400 free champion Park Tae-hwan of South Korea at 1:46.63. Phelps has a score to settle with Biedermann, who stunned the two-time world champion two years ago in Rome while wearing the now-banned high-tech bodysuit. The German also took away the 14-time Olympic gold medalists world record. Lochte didnt swim the event in Rome. In the first event of the morning prelims, American Natalie Coughlin qualified fastest in the 100 backstroke.

Associated Press See COCHRAN / Page B4 Associated Press Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Alex Cobb throws in the first inning Sunday against the Kansas City Royals in Kansas City, Mo. Cobb, Rays shut out Royals Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. A finger blister, not the Kansas City Royals, knocked Tampa Bay rookie Alex Cobb out of the game Sunday. He curbed the Royals on six singles in seven scoreless innings and Ben Zobrist had three hits and drove in two runs to help the Rays beat Kansas City 5-0 on Sunday. Cobb threw 65 strikes in 81 pitches, but developed a small blister in the seventh inning that led to Rays manager Joe Maddon going to his bullpen. Its unfortunate because his pitch limit was in great shape, Maddon said. He had plenty left in the tank. Cobb (3-0) struck out two and walked none to pick up the victory and lowered his earned run average to 2.57. He has allowed one earned run in 13 innings in two starts since being recalled July 18.

On Sunday, their impressive ride came to an end at the hands of an extremely talented Largo team who earned a 13-1 victory over Inverness. Inverness accomplishments this summer are ones that will remain with them for years to come. As for Largo, they finished the Section 7 tournament undefeated and will now move on to represent the section in next weeks state tournament. Largo was the better team today and theyll represent the section very well. They have 1314 players in that dugout and theyre all unselfish and play for the team first and thats what it takes to be a champion, Inverness manager J.L McKinley admitted. We had our heart (Sunday), we just didnt bring our bats. You cant expect to beat a team the caliber of Largo, who is greatly coached and plays solid fundamental baseball, if you only get two hits in the game, McKinley added. But what happened today doesnt take away anything from what our team has accomplished this year. The star of the show for Largo on this day was Colin Lonsberry, who belted two monster home runs over the center field fence. His first blast was a two-run shot in the first inning that capped off a five-run frame for the home team. In the second inning the No. 6 hitter in the lineup launched his second home run in as many innings, this time a grand slam that gave Largo an insurmountable 10-0 lead. A testament to a teams character is easily measured by how it faces up to adversity. By that standard Ryan Dolan proved what he was made of in the top of the third inning.

Jhonny Peralta, Wilson Betemit and Ramon Santiago each had an RBI, and the Tigers extended their lead in the AL Central to two games for the first time this season. Victor Martinez added three hits for Detroit and Jose Valverde converted his 26th consecutive save opportunity. Delmon Young had two hits for the Twins, who finished a 12-game homestand 6-6 and lost a half-game in the standings as they try to keep pace with the Tigers, Indians and White Sox in the division. Minnesota is now seven games back in the AL Central. Forced to sit through several long stretches while his teammates were hitting, Porcello (10-6) managed to stay loose and continue his July success. The right-hander allowed two runs on five hits in six innings and improved to 4-0 this month. Porcello also improved to 4-1 with a 2.30 ERA in his last six starts against the Twins. Red Sox 12, Mariners 8 BOSTON Jarrod Saltalamacchia drove in four runs, Kevin Youkilis hit a two-run homer and the Boston Red Sox extended the Seattle Mariners franchise-worst losing streak to 15 games with a 12-8 win on Sunday. Tim Wakefield (6-3) joined Roger Clemens as the only pitchers to strike out 2,000 batters with Boston and moved one win away from his 200th victory. But the 44-year-old knuckleballer left after giving up Brendan Ryans grand slam that cut the lead to 11-7 with one out in the seventh. Bostons powerhouse lineup had 17 hits with Saltalamacchia, Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford getting three each. Michael Pineda (8-7) allowed five runs in the first after Seattle took a 2-0 lead and gave up seven runs in 4 1-3 innings. The Red Sox kept their three-game lead in the AL East over the New York Yankees, who beat the Oakland Athletics 7-5. Baseballs best hitting team scored at least 11 runs for the fourth time in Wakefields last eight starts. The Red Sox swept the three-game series with their 17th win in 20 games. The loss broke Seattles record for its longest losing streak, set in 1992. It is the longest in the majors since Kansas City lost 19 in a row in 2005. Wakefield struggled in the first, giving up a two-run homer to Miguel Olivo, his 14th of the season. But the Red Sox took the lead after sending just four batters to the plate.

Phillies 5, Padres 3PHILADELPHIA Roy Halladay bounced back from his shortest stint of the season to strike out eight in eight innings and lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 5-3 win over the San Diego Padres on Sunday. Raul Ibanez and Carlos Ruiz each had two RBIs to lead the Phillies to their fifth straight win. Halladay (12-4) had trouble pitching in the heat and humidity in his last start at Chicago and left after four-plus innings. It was 94 degrees for the first pitch Sunday, and Halladay allowed three runs and eight hits and didnt get the side in order until the sixth. He labored through the first five innings, then retired the last 10 batters. Padres center fielder Chris Denorfia robbed Raul Ibanez of a home run with a leaping catch over the wall. Halladay felt ill against the Cubs and had little explanation for why he was so affected by the heat. The temperature hit the mid-90s in the first when he gave up a quick run to the Padres. Halladay gave up a pair of runs in the fourth that cut Philadelphias lead to 5-3. Thats the way it stayed the rest of the game because Halladay only got better the deeper he went. He fanned Kyle Phillips to end the fifth and didnt allow another runner. He threw 116 pitches and is tied for the NL lead in victories.

Paul legged out an infield hit with one out against St. Louis reliever Jason Motte (3-2), then stole second and advanced to third when catcher Gerald Lairds throw rolled into center field. DArnaud lined to center and the speedy Paul easily beat the throw from centerfielder Colby Rasmus as the Pirates snapped a three-game losing streak. Joe Beimel (1-1) retired the Cardinals in order to pick up his first victory as a Pirate in more than eight years. Ronny Cedeno and Eric Fryer had two hits apiece for Pittsburgh. Rasmus had two hits, including his 10th homer of the season for the Cardinals, who blew their 18th save of the season to fall into a virtual tie with the Pirates in the NL Central standings.

Marlins 5, Mets 4 MIAMI John Buck doubled for his first career pinch-hit RBI to drive in the go-ahead run with two out in the eighth inning, and the Florida Marlins rallied past the New York Mets 5-4 on Sunday. The Marlins trailed 4-3 going into the eighth against Bobby Parnell (3-2). Logan Morrison led off with a gametying homer, and Mike Stanton singled. A sacrifice advanced the runner, and Buck put Florida ahead. Buck, the Marlins regular catcher, was pinch-hitting for only the third time this season. Floridas Emilio Bonifacio singled leading off the first inning to extend his career-best hitting streak to 23 games, the longest active streak in the majors. Stanton hit his 22nd home run. The Mets David Wright homered for the first time since his return from a back injury that sidelined him for two months. He added a double and a single, and he has had two RBIs in all three of his games since being activated. Randy Choate (1-1) retired the only batter he faced. Leo Nunez pitched a perfect ninth with two strikeouts for his 28th save in 31 chances.

Giants 2, Brewers 1SAN FRANCISCO Madison Bumgarner was more animated about a day at the White House than he was about his third straight decision. Bumgarner will certainly enjoy his day in Washington after pitching into the eighth inning, helping the San Francisco Giants survive another onerun game, a 2-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday. I just go out and pitch, said the 21year-old, who owns a World Series ring. I just felt like I did a good job of just making pitches. Bumgarner and the Giants will be guests of President Barack Obama at the White House on Monday before beginning a series in Philadelphia the next day. It will be fun to see that place, Bumgarner said. Giants manager Bruce Bochy was slightly more effusive about the side trip. It is going to be an honor, Bochy said. When were there, well think about why were there. We get the chance to meet the President. Its going to be a fun trip. After we see the President well jump on a train, like the old days, and go on to Philly. Mike Fontenot and Jeff Keppinger each drove in runs for the Giants, who have won seven of 10 games since the All-Star break. Aubrey Huff had three hits and Brandon Belt added two hits.

Yankees 7, Athletics 5NEW YORK Bartolo Colon pitched seven effective innings to end a three-start losing streak and Curtis Granderson connected for a two-run homer, leading the New York Yankees over the Oakland Athletics 7-5 on Sunday. Eduardo Nunez hit a two-run double and catcher Russell Martin was in the middle of everything for the Yankees. They beat All-Star lefty Gio Gonzalez and returned to their winning ways against the As when Mariano Rivera staved off a rally in the ninth with a bit of good fortune. Hideki Matsuis fifth hit, which matched a career high, loaded the bases with one out in the ninth. Josh Willingham cut it to 7-5 with an RBI single, the only run Rivera has allowed in 22 outings at home this season. David DeJesus then hit a liner to first baseman Mark Teixeira, and pinchrunner Ryan Sweeney broke for second. Sweeney was easily trapped off the bag for a game-ending double play. A one-run loss Saturday snapped New Yorks 11-game winning streak against Oakland. But the Yankees rebounded behind Colon, taking two of three meetings over the weekend. The Athletics have lost 10 straight series to New York, an Oakland record against any club.

NFL Players committee to meet today Associated PressNEW YORK A vote on a settlement to the lockout is what every NFL fan wants. Nobody is sure when that might happen. The players executive committee will meet Monday in Washington after lawyers have worked through the weekend on issues that are holding up an agreement with the owners. Several people with knowledge of the meeting have told The Associated Press that no vote to recommend a deal is certain Monday. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the players association has not revealed its plans. Owners approved a tentative agreement to end the four-month lockout on Thursday. But the players said they need more information before they can vote, and took issue with portions of the proposal. Several players only saw that full proposal late Saturday. Should the players executive committee vote to accept the deal, it then would go to the 32 team representatives to approve. After that, some 1,900 players would need to vote, with a simple majority required for passage. The 10 named plaintiffs in the players lawsuit against the league including Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees must officially inform the court in Minneapolis of their approval of the pact, too. Players also will need to vote to re-establish the NFLPA as a union; only after that happens could a full collective bargaining agreement be reached. But training camps and preseason games could occur while the sides put the finishing touches on a deal. Only after the NFLPA is again a union can it negotiate such items as the leagues personal conduct policy and drug testing. But a person with knowledge of the executive committee meeting said it will be to understand where things stand after this weekends conversations. No talk of not voting, no talk of vote.

It was the fourth PGA Tour victory for OHair, who started three shots off the lead before shooting 68 to get into the playoff with Blanks (70) at 4-under 276. Argentinas Andres Romero (70) bogeyed the final hole to miss the playoff and finish alone in third at 277. Canadian Adam Hadwin, a local playing on a sponsors exemption, struggled early before bouncing back late to finish with a 72 and tied with Geoff Ogilvy (70) for fourth place at 2-under. John Daly (72) finish in a four-way tie for ninth, his first top-10 in six years. Miyazato beats Lewis at Evian Masters EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France Ai Miyazato won the Evian Masters on Sunday, shooting a 2-under 70 to protect her twoshot lead and clinch her first title of the year. Miyazato played with consistency throughout the tournament, dropping shots on just five of the 72 holes overall and finishing with a 15-under total of 273. Stacy Lewis of the United States also shot a 70 to finish two shots back in second, with a trio of players another stroke behind. Miyazato had not won a title since the Safeway Classic last August, and the 26-year-old Japanese player now has seven LPGA titles overall. She won her first LPGA title at Evian in 2009, and added five more last year. Miyazato raised both arms in the air after she sank her winning putt. Noren wins Nordea Masters despite finale STOCKHOLM Alexander Noren of Sweden relied on his huge overnight lead to clinch the Nordea Masters title on Sunday, finishing seven shots clear despite a disappointing 5-over 77 in the final round. Noren entered the day with an 11-shot lead after a courserecord 63 on Saturday, and was never threatened despite some shaky play. The Swede started and finished his round with a birdie but had five bogeys and a double-bogey in between. That meant little, however, as most other players also struggled in tough conditions at the Bro Hof Slott course. Richard Finch, who finished second, was the only player to break par in the final round with a 69. Niklas Lemke of Sweden was third, another three shots behind after a 73. Georgia amateur takes Nationwide event COLUMBUS, Ohio Harris English became the second amateur to win on the Nationwide Tour this year, rolling in a 10-foot birdie on the last hole for a 1-under 70 to capture the Nationwide Childrens Hospital Invitational. English, who just finished his senior year at Georgia, joined fellow Bulldog Russell Henley as Nationwide Tour winners this year. In what looked more like a college tournament on the Scarlet course at Ohio State, a two-shot swing on the last hole gave English a one-shot victory over another amateur, John Peterson of LSU, and Kyle Reifers.

OHair beat Kris Blanks in a playoff. Power takes checkered flag at Indys Edmonton race Driver jumps to early lead, cruises to win Associated PressEDMONTON, Alberta Australias Will Power held off a hard-charging Helio Castroneves to win the Edmonton Indy on Sunday and narrow the gap on points leader Dario Franchitti. Power started second, overtook polesitter and leader Takuma Sato a quarter of the way through the race, then held off his Team Penske teammate to win by eight-tenths of a second. It was exactly the day we needed, Power said. Franchitti finished third, 1.2 seconds off the pace in the 80-lap race, run under sunny skies on the road course at the 2.2mile, 13-turn City Centre Airport. Power has 350 points in the championship standings, cutting his deficit to Franchitti from 55 to 38 points with seven races remaining. Franchitti said he threw away a chance for the win near the midpoint of the race, when Mike Conway was leading the other cars on a double-file restart. Conway didnt accelerate as soon as the green flag came out. I didnt see the green flag, Conway said. Its just something Ive got to learn when up front. Franchitti said he thought he was supposed to wait until the end of the straightaway to accelerate. I screwed up. I lost a bunch of track position, the 38-year-old Scot said. Im disappointed in myself. The Target Chip Ganassi driver got caught up in the wash and fell back to 10th before working his way back up the field. I was catching Will and Helio really quickly, but unfortunately once I got there I couldnt do anything with them. But it was a nice recovery from the whole team. Will Power Parties hoping deal gets done soon
With his team down by 10 runs Dolan hit a slow roller down the third base line. Simply jogging down the baseline with a cavalier attitude is what a player that had already had packed it in would have done. Instead, Dolan hustled down the line in a fashion reminiscent of the reputation that Yankees captain Derek Jeter has become know for in his illustrious career. In fact Dolan even slid head first into the bag and beat the throw for an infield single. He would be forced out on the next play when Bobby Langley hit a ball to the short stop. But again, it was Langleys hustle that allowed them to stay out of the double play. Langley would go on to steal second and scored the only Inverness run of the game on Dylan Colemans RBI single. It wasnt much in the big scheme of things and certainly didnt alter the inevitable end result. But it spoke volumes as to the heart and fight that still remained in these district champions. And it was certainly a point not lost on McKinley. Ryan (Dolan) is our vocal leader in the dugout. Hes always working on his teammates, trying to keep their spirits up, McKinley explained. Hes a real team leader. He never gives up. He doesnt miss a beat back there behind the plate. Hes got a ton of heart and courage, Ryans got a great future in baseball because thats what it takes to play this game. Dolan literally left it all out there, catching all 18 innings of the tournament that his team competed in temperatures that soared into the mid-90s. And it was a fact even noticed by Friday nights home plate umpire, who described Dolans stamina level and performance as both remarkable and unbelievable. As for McKinley, his praise wasnt limited to just his catcher. In fact he made it a point to emphasize to his team as well as anyone else who would listen that, this team is a group of scrappers who were determined to fight until the final out. My guys fought through adversity all year. They gelled right from the very first inning they were together, McKinley continued.

Its a big hump Ive got over there, said Cochran, whose victory qualifies him for next years British Open at Royal Lytham. To do it in a major and on this golf course means so much. And to do it with the kids here, its even better. Cochran became the eighth player from the U.S. in the last nine years to win the Senior British Open. He achieved the biggest victory of his career by staying consistent on the tee and rolling in a series of pressure putts, closing the tournament at 12 under to claim a winners check of $310,000. He made six birdies in the first 10 holes two coming on the first two holes to open up a five-shot lead as Calcavecchia, who shared the overnight lead with Cochran and South Africas David Frost, dropped back by fourputting from 15 feet on the par-3 No. 9. Cochrans bogey on No. 14, combined with Calcavecchias birdies on Nos. 12 and 15, trimmed the lead to two shots. But the championelect parred his way home, looking completely unruffled. The 61-year-old Tom Watson, looking for a record fourth Open title, rolled back the years with a vintage 67 to finish tied for third with 2010 runner-up Corey Pavin at 9 under leaving the U.S. with the top four placings. Englands Barry Lane (70) was the highest-placed European, a shot back in fifth. Nothing more than a journeyman on the regular tour with only one victory to his name at the 1991 Centel Western Open when he overhauled Greg Norman in the final round Cochran has blossomed in his three seasons on the senior circuit. He won back-to-back tournaments in a threeweek span in September last year and has played himself into regular contention at the majors, finishing third at the Senior U.S. Open in 2009 for a key breakthrough and a check for $175,152. That qualified him for the tours high-profile events and he tied for third at last years Senior British Open at Carnoustie. Ive actually mentioned it to my boys on more than one occasion, that I felt that if I was going to do some damage in a major and win a major, it probably would be here, Cochran said. I enjoy the type of golf it is. I am more single-minded over here, and I just love the golf over here. His only previous British Open came in 1992, when he tied for 28th at Muirfield. Cochran was playing just his second tournament after injuring his wrist during the second round of the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf tournament in late April, keeping him out for two months. He returned at Pebble Beach two weeks ago for the Nature Valley First Tee Open, finishing tied for 10th. I liked him better when he was injured, Calcavecchia said, with a smile. The 51-year-old Calcavecchia was bidding to become the fourth player to achieve the British Open double, after his success as a regular-tour player at Troon in 1989, but stumbled with an all-too-familiar lapse in focus. He was at a loss to explain how he needed three putts from 2 feet on the short No. 9, shaking his head ruefully as he trudged off the green. A minute later, Cochran birdied No. 7 and that threeshot swing proved decisive. The four-whack on the ninth hole, those usually hurt you, Calcavecchia said. Frost shot 72 to finish sixth at 7 under, a stroke clear of Australias Peter Fowler (70) and American trio Fred Funk (66), Lee Rinker (71) and Goodes (71). Cochran heads to next weeks Senior U.S Open brimming with confidence and will look to emulate Bernhard Langer, who crossed the Atlantic last year to win back-to-back majors. Im certainly the kind of guy that carries those good feelings, Cochran said. All I can say is Im going to try to go there, do the research on getting my legs underneath me and my sleep patterns right, throw it in there and go from there. mistakes, Gomez said. Crystal River added two insurance runs in the sixth as Danielle Gomez, who was 3-for-3, led off the inning with a bunt single and was replaced by pinch runner Ashley Kovanda. Kovanda went to second on a wild pitch, to third on a bunt single by Jordan Martin and scored on an error. Bridget Whitley followed with a single, moving Jordan Martin to second and Courtney Striflers single drove in Martin with another single. The weekend has been all about goals. When Crystal River lost in last years state semifinals, its goal was to advance to the finals. With that accomplished Saturday, the new goal was to win the state tournament. That was achieved Sunday. The new goal? To win the Southeast Region tournament, Gomez said, and go to the World Series. Royals to one hit the final two innings to finish off the Rays eighth shutout of the season. It was a big disappointment, Cobb said of the blister. I wanted to throw at least eight innings, maybe nine. Were short in bullpen. I would have liked to have been able to help that out. It is uncertain whether the blister will prevent Cobb from making his start Saturday at Seattle. What is certain is he wont be going back to the minors. This is Cobbs third stint this season with the Rays. He said he used to sit at his locker wondering whether he would be tapped on the shoulder and told to report to Maddons office for another trip to Triple-A Durham. Ill keep a lookout after every outing, but seven shutout innings never hurts your cause, Cobb said. Cobb, a 2006 fourth-round pick, is unbeaten in his first seven major league starts, the first Rays pitcher to accomplish that. This is why we went to a six-man (rotation), Maddon said. This is the exact reason. You cant do it unless you have a pitcher that is that effective and big league-ready and Alex is. Theres no tapping on the shoulder. When Cobb gave up two singles to leadoff the sixth and seventh innings, he quickly worked out of the jams. No panic, Maddon said. He threw strikes, let the defense play. He made the hitters swing the bat, wasnt walking people and getting into bad counts. Thats why he was able to get through that relatively easy. The Rays scored two runs with two out in the sixth on one hit, a Sam Fuld single, three hit batters and a walk. After Fulds hit, Felipe Paulino hit Sean Rodriguez and Desmond Jennings with pitches to load the bases. Blake Wood replaced Paulino and walked Johnny Damon, scoring Fuld. Wood hit Zobrist with a pitch to bring home Rodriguez. Paulino (1-4), who lost for the fourth time in his past five starts, gave up four runs on seven hits, while walking two and striking out six. The Rays scored a pair of runs in the third with Evan Longoria driving in Damon with a single. Matt Joyces sacrifice fly scored Zobrist with the other run.

Dont Miss Out On This GREAT DEAL! 0008KRB 352-563-5966 Ten-run outburst puts U.S. in World Cup final National softball team will play for 2011 title today Associated PressOKLAHOMA CITY First-year coach Ken Eriksen is starting to see his group of youngsters transform into the Team USA of old. Stacy May-Johnson hit a grand slam and Christi Orgeron had a three-run double in a 10-run fourth inning, and the United States advanced to the World Cup of Softball championship game by beating Great Britain 10-0 Sunday. The U.S. will face either 2008 Olympic gold medalist Japan or Canada, which beat the Americans 4-3 on Saturday. Orgeron broke a scoreless tie with a double that hopped to the wall in left field and cleared the bases, and the Americans (4-1) didnt let up until the game had ended because of the mercy rule. Just after Michelle Moultrie made a highlight-reel diving catch in left field to finish the top of the fourth, the American offense came alive just like in the days when Crystl Bustos, Jessica Mendoza and Stacey Nuveman filled the middle of the lineup. Orgeron scored when second baseman Naomi Jones misplayed Michelle Moultries grounder, and Rhea Taylor followed with a single to shallow center to load the bases again. May-Johnson homered to left, and Valerie Arioto and Brittany Schutte added back-to-back blasts to center to end the game. All of the Olympians from the Americans most dominant era are gone now, replaced by players with little to no international experience and some only halfway through college. The U.S. lost three out of four games against Japan, including the championship game, at the Canada Cup this month and also lost to Canada at this World Cup. But Eriksen saw his team start to turn the corner late in the 4-3 loss to Canada, which ended with the tying run on third.

FSUs Fisher welcomes higher expectations Noles picked to claim ACC and possibly more Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher heads to the annual Atlantic Coast Conferences football kickoff festivities embracing preseason predictions that have the Seminoles favored to win their first ACC title since 2005 and possibly contend for a national championship. Thats why you want to be at Florida State, Fisher said before traveling to Pinehurst, N.C. with two of his top players for the ACC meetings that started Sunday. You want the expectations that you can win. The secondyear head coach cant escape expectations at a school that put together one of the great runs in college football history between 1987 and 2000. The Seminoles won 10 games or more for 14 straight seasons and finished no lower than fifth in The Associated Press year-end rankings. Fisher is reminded every morning when he arrives at work of those dynasty years during predecessor Bobby Bowdens heyday. The lobby leading into the football offices overlooking Florida States 83,000-seat stadium is adorned with memorabilia encased in glassed-in mahogany cabinets. They house trophies for the 1993 and 1999 national championships, a dozen ACC titles and the Heisman statutes won by Charlie Ward and Chris Weinke. Fisher believes hes accumulated the talent, experience and now size to get back among the big boys. We like our players, Fisher said. Theyre players we wanted here. Theyre pretty danggummed good. He wont have to wait long this fall to find out. Oklahoma visits Tallahassee on Sept. 17, a date long etched into the calendars of Florida State fans hungry to get even for last seasons embarrassing 47-17 loss on the Sooners home turf the only real whipping Fisher suffered in his inaugural season. Its a measuring stick, Fisher said about the highly anticipated showdown. Its why you play those great nonconference games. The ebullient Fischer claims hes not looking past the Seminoles first two games against outmanned Louisiana-Monroe and Charleston Southern. He knows that the games that get a team into the postseason and a possible BCS bowl dont start until the following week when Florida State travels to Clemson to open ACC play in its first road test of the season. But he also realizes that some will see the Oklahoma game as the most serious test in his brief career as Bowdens successor. Well put our heart and soul into it, but win or lose its not the season, Fisher said. Thats where you can destroy teams by putting all your eggs in one basket, in one football game. After a decade of mediocrity, Florida State rekindled enthusiasm and raised those expectations with a 10-4 record in Fishers inaugural season. The Seminoles finished impressively with a pair of wins over Southeastern Conference powers Florida and South Carolina sandwiched around a disappointing loss to Virginia Tech in the ACC title game. Florida State returns all but a half dozen starters from last year. The key losses were quarterback Christian Ponder, the 12th player picked in the NFL draft by Minnesota, and guard Rodney Hudson, a second-round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs. The keys to the offense are being turned over to redshirt junior EJ Manuel, who was Fishers marquee recruit in his first season as Bowdens offensive coordinator. The 6-foot-4, 245pound Manuel effectively gives Fisher a veteran quarterback, having already accounted for more than 2,000 yards of offense and 11 touchdowns. Aussie delivery Evans first from Oz to triumph at Tour de France Associated PressPARIS After 2,100 miles and three weeks actually, more like a decade Cadel Evans was finally able to wrap himself in his national flag, tears in his eyes, and listen to the Australian national anthem from the top of the Tour de France podium Sunday. The 34-year-old took victory after crossing the finish line on the Champs-Elysee, as the massive crowd on Frances most famous thoroughfare cheered wildly. Later he bounded up the steps onto the podium, taking deep breaths, then appeared at the top looking calm and waved the bouquet he received in the air. Thank you to everyone. Its really incredible, he told the crowd. He was joined on the podium by the Schleck brothers of Luxembourg Andy, who finished second overall for the third straight year, and Frank. Australian singer Tina Arena sang Evans national anthem. Im very happy. Cadel was the best of the Tour and he deserved to win, said Andy Schleck. Second isnt bad, and my brother was on the podium too. Ill be back to win this Tour. We have a date for next year. Evans Italian wife Chiara stood beside him after the presentation ceremony. I think hes worked very hard, she said. This year was a far cry from the Tours de France of many recent years that were dominated almost from the start by Lance Armstrong or, later, Alberto Contador. This was a race that defied predictions, forced pundits to take back their words and was still hanging in the balance on the final weekend. Evans rarely made his presence known, but he was always there. Up every mountain he was never more than one bicycle length behind his rivals. With a small lead that hed picked up in the early stages of the race and a lot of strength in time-trialing, he knew that he didnt need to attack in order to win. Still, when Andy Schleck broke away from the field on the climb of the Galibier pass on Thursday, observers thought Evans BMC team had made a fatal mistake. But Evans remained calm. He went into the time-trial needing to make up almost a minute on Schleck; he made up more than two-and-a-half. Its been a long wait for Evans, who first showed himself as a challenger for major races in 2002, and twice came second in the Tour but couldnt quite make it to the top of the podium until now. He is the oldest winner of the Tour since World War II, narrowly eclipsing Gino Bartali of Italy who was also 34 but slightly younger when he won in 1948. The all-time record was set by 36year-old Firmin Lambot of Belgium in 1922. Sundays 21st and final stage the most prestigious for the races sprinters was won by Britains Mark Cavendish for the third year in a row, despite being forced to change his bike on the Champs-Elysees. He also took the green jersey for the overall best sprinter. Cavendish crossed the line holding out the green jersey he was wearing, and then kissed it. Despite his 20 Tour stage victories, the jersey had eluded him until now. Finally! he said. Second place in the stage went to Edvald Boasson Hagen of Norway, and third to Andre Greipel of Germany. The polka-dot jersey awarded to the best climber went to Olympic champion Samuel Sanchez of Spain, who brought his two children onto the podium with him. The best young rider was Pierre Rolland of France, who won the classic climb up the Alpe dHuez on Friday. Before setting off on Sunday, riders removed their helmets and observed a minute of silence in tribute to the victims of the attacks in Norway. When this kind of thing happens, everybody forgets about the sport, said Norwegian rider Thor Hushovd. Its not even important in comparison.

CR juniors victors, majors fall L ARRYB UGG Sports correspondentHOLIDAY The Crystal River Juniors ended their Section 7 efforts with a victory while the Majors finished with a loss Sunday afternoon in the finales of the Little League Baseball All Stars Section 7 Tournament at the Holiday Recreational Complex. Both teams ended up with 1-2 marks and third place in their classifications. The Juniors (13-14) picked up their first victory with a 5-3 win over Largo. The Majors (11-12) lost their last game 6-0 to Largo. It was the final game of coaching for Majors manager Benje Thomas. Juniors (13-14) Crystal River 5, Largo 3 Daylon Rogers was the winning pitcher. He had three hits including a double and two RBIs for Crystal River. Crystal River took the win with a four-run third inning. Shawn Frasier had two hits and scored a run. Tyler Voland and Derrick Rogers scored runs. Crystal River had eight hits and showed some heart on a sweltering summer day. It was a good game, said manager Chris Purnell. It was a fun game. We have had a great year. They are going on to high school. I am looking forward to seeing them out there. Majors (11-12) East Lake 6, Crystal River 0 In a movie, Thomas would have won his final game of managing. Unfortunately, his 14 years of coaching ended with this loss. Payton OCallaghan was the losing pitcher. Crystal River managed three hits. East Lakes Russell St. George blasted a three-run homer and Bryce Moecklin jacked a two-run shot. Thomas will remember the players as he leaves the field of competition. I have been at it a long time and was ready to let someone else handle it for awhile, said Thomas, who has coached all 14 years in Crystal River. I have watched some of the kids play at the high school level. It seemed like every year, we had a great bunch of kids. This was a great team. They came together and played with a lot of heart. We really prepared for seeing a lot of fastballs and this past two games, we saw a lot of breaking balls. It was a great bunch of kids. Its probably the best bunch of kids I have had the pleasure to coach.
Patrick Stewart gets birthday tune at Comic-Con SAN DIEGO ComicCon fans boldly went into singing mode to wish Patrick Stewart a happy birthday. A hall filled with about 6,000 people at the fan convention Saturday sang Happy Birthday to Stewart during a preview panel for the animated musical Dorothy of Oz. Stewart provides the voice of a wizened 900year-old tree in the movie, though in real life, he turned 71 on July 13. Voice co-star Megan Hilty a Broadway singer whose credits include the Oz musical Wicked, led the crowd in the song for Stewart, an idol among Comic-Con fans for his roles in Star Trek and X-Men. Due in theaters next summer, Dorothy of Oz features Glee star Lea Michele providing the voice of the Kansas girl who journeys to a colorful fantasy world. Producers: Kurt, Finn, Rachel not done with Glee SAN DIEGO Glee stars Lea Michele Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith will appear in future seasons of the hit show. Co-creator and executive producer Brad Falchuk told thousands of socalled Gleeks gathered at the Comic-Con fan convention on Sunday that Rachel, Kurt and Finn are not done with the show after this season. Reports surfaced last month the three stars may not return for season four of the musical Fox series. Their characters are high school seniors who are set to graduate at the end of season three. Theyre seniors, theyre graduating, but just because theyre graduating doesnt mean theyre leaving the show, Falchuk told fans. The three actors did not appear at the presentation at the San Diego Convention Center, where show writers and cast members Jenna Ushkowitz Darren Criss Dot Marie Jones and Harry Shum Jr. talked about the new season, which is set to return in the fall. The new season will be split into two mini-seasons that mimic school semesters, Falchuk said. Fans can expect a deeper look into the characters lives and posthigh-school aspirations. Broadway star Idina Menzel will return, and Sue Sylvester, the meanspirited cheerleading coach played by Jane Lynch (who won an Emmy last year for the role), will be running for Congress in season three in an attempt to destroy all glee clubs. Sue is running on a no-arts platform, Falchuk said. The presentation also included a peek at Glee: The 3D Concert Movie, set for release Aug. 12.

Grant was named General of the Army of the United States, the first officer to hold the rank. In 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt froze Japanese assets in the United States in retaliation for Japans occupation of southern Indochina. In 1946, the United States detonated an atomic bomb near Bikini Atoll in the Pacific in the first underwater test of the device. In 1956, the Italian liner Andrea Doria collided with the Swedish passenger ship Stockholm off the New England coast late at night and began sinking; at least 51 people were killed.

SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning numbers, Page B4 Patrick Stewart Associated Press Floral tributes and messages are seen Sunday outside the residence of singer Amy Winehouse in Camden Square, north London. Amy Winehouse, the beehived soul-jazz diva whose self-destructive habits overshadowed a distinctive musical talent, was found dead Saturday in her London home. She was 27. J AKE C OYLE Associated PressNEW YORK Amy Winehouse released only two albums in her life, one of which sold more than a million copies, won five Grammys and sparked a retro soul movement that hasnt yet stopped. The small output, in inverse relation to her outsized talent, made her death Saturday in London all the more tragic. Fans will only be able to imagine the unrecorded singles, the never-to-be concerts and the comeback album that didnt come. Its a sadly familiar script in pop music, the history of which is checkered with greats and wouldbe greats snuffed out too early in life. Almost as soon as news of Winehouses death broke and spread across social media, fans were inducting her into the unfortunate pantheon of music talents gone too soon. Many noted that Winehouse, 27, shared the same age at death as Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Brian Jones, Kurt Cobain and Jim Morrison. The British singer-songwriter Billy Bragg, though, realized that a meaningful commonality was being mistaken for coincidence. Its not age that Hendrix, Jones, Joplin, Morrison, Cobain & Amy have in common, wrote Bragg on Twitter. Its drug abuse, sadly. Those names were touted on the Web as the 27 Club, a ghoulish glamourizing of rock star death that makes it sound as though even in death VIPs remain behind a seductive velvet rope. Its a term, sometimes called the Forever 27 Club, that has spawned a Wikipedia entry, an independent 2008 movie (The 27 Club), numerous websites and at least one book (The 27s: The Greatest Myth of Rock & Roll). The causes of death vary. Jones, the Rolling Stones guitarist, was found dead at the bottom of his swimming pool in 1969 and was ruled dead by misadventure. Hendrix, having mixed sleeping pills and wine, died in 1970 in a London hotel room. Joplin, also in 1970, died at Los Angeles Landmark Hotel, with heroin the culprit. Morrison died of heart failure in 1971 in the bathtub of his Paris apartment. Cobain killed himself in 1994. Some have claimed Cobain was aware of the so-called 27 Club. After his death, his mother, Wendy OConnor, was understandably fed up with the concept, saying: I told him not to join that stupid club. The cause of Winehouses death is not yet known. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday. She long struggled with drug and alcohol abuse. Last month, she canceled her European comeback tour after she swayed and slurred her way through barely recognizable songs in her first show in the Serbian capital, Belgrade. She flew home, and her management said she would take time off to recover. Whats particular about Winehouses style of rock n roll excess is that it was chronicled thoroughly by the tabloids and news media and was eagerly consumed by readers. High-quality photographs captured her poor health, the scabs on her face and marks on her arms. Videos of her landed on the Internet, like one that showed her and Babyshambles singer Pete Doherty playing with newborn mice. Another showed her singing a racist ditty to the tune of a childrens song. One, published by a tabloid newspaper, appeared to show her smoking crack cocaine. Her run-ins with the law she was cautioned by the police in 2008 for assault and in 2010 pleaded guilty to assaulting a theater manager who asked her to leave a family Christmas show because shed had too much to drink found headlines. So did her romances, such as her brief marriage in 2007 to music industry hanger-on Blake Fielder-Civil. Rarely, though, were Winehouses troubles romantic or appealing. Though a thoroughly captivating presence all beehive and tattoos and candor Winehouse always cut a desperate figure. Her struggles with substances and bipolar disorder (she said she declined to take medication for it) were painfully evident. In death, her famous boast of no, no, no to rehab only sounds empty. The hard truths of addiction dont fit neatly into pop tunes or morbid 27 Clubs but play out over years of toil. Early death typically mythologizes pop stars, inflating their reputation. Pop culture writer Chuck Klosterman, in his book Killing Yourself to Live, wondered why the greatest career move any musician can make is to stop breathing. The posthumous releases from Winehouse will surely follow, and her legacy will grow. But hopefully mythologizing will be resisted. Winehouses death, an unfortunate but unsurprising end to a long, public decline, might be best remembered not just as another tragic loss but as a modern portrait of how untrue those rock myths really are.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, J ULY25, 2011 B7 Author Alfred A. Montapert wrote, Why are we Masters of our Fate, the captains of our souls? Because we have the power to control our thoughts, our attitudes. During the bidding of a bridge deal, sometimes one partner is the captain, the person who chooses the final contract. At other times, the discussion continues, with neither player sure of strain or level, or, sometimes, both. Lets look at these aspects this week. First, though, how should South plan the play in four hearts after West leads the spade king? North had a textbook game-invitational limit raise of three hearts, showing four-plus hearts, 10-12 support points (counting high-card and shortage points) and eight losers. Now South is the captain, deciding whether to pass, or to raise to four hearts, or to do anything else to suggest a slam. In four hearts, South has four losers: two spades, one heart and one club. If he takes the first or second spade trick and immediately leads a trump, he will lose those tricks. To eliminate one loser, declarer must take his three diamond winners, discarding one of dummys spades. Then it is time to play a trump. Later, South will ruff his third spade on the board. Finally, note that South, counting one extra point for his nice fivecard suit, might have opened one no-trump. (If, for example, North had responded one spade, South would have had an awkward rebid.) Then North might have jumped to three no-trump, which would be all right on a nonspade lead. (If West leads the spade king, declarer must guess to attack clubs before hearts.) Or North might have used Stayman, leading to four hearts.

I thought we had a good marriage, but my trust has been shaken recently. Don retired four years ago. He told me a former co-worker, Lulu, had e-mailed to ask to meet for lunch and catch up on the latest office gossip. It sounded pretty innocent to me, so I had no objection. Then my world turned upside down. Last week, I ran into another of Dons ex-coworkers, who informed me that Don and Lulu had been having lunch together a few times a week for the past four years. He said their obvious attraction was well known at the office. Annie, Don never once mentioned these lunches to me. When I asked him point blank, he became quite upset and said there was nothing going on. I said I wanted the lunches and e-mails to end. He replied that he wont initiate contact, but if Lulu emails him, he will respond. I find this unacceptable. Yesterday, Don said Lulu invited him to the office picnic. He plans to go, but said I shouldnt attend because Id be bored to tears. I told him if he attended this picnic without me, I would have to consider my next step. He thinks Im bluffing. My best friend says I didnt come down hard enough. She thinks I should move out and then tell our children, who have always admired their father. What is your take on all this, Annie? Nervous Wife Dear Nervous : Don doesnt want you at the picnic because he wants to be with Lulu (assuming there actually is a picnic). You should insist on going with him. Whether this is an affair or just a flirtation, Don is showing appalling disregard for you. Out of respect for your marriage, he needs to stop all contact with Lulu immediately. Try not to bring the children into this mess. Your next step should be counseling. Tell Don the marriage is in serious trouble, and ask him to come with you. If he refuses, go without him and figure out what is best for you. Dear Annie: A few weeks ago, my older sister invited my children and me on a day trip. She also invited a bunch of other people and family members. On the day of the outing, she stopped by my house and asked me not to come. She told me she had invited my ex-boyfriend, a guy I had dated for seven years. We split up two years ago because he didnt have the ability to remain faithful. My sister insists they are not dating, and that may be true, but it has really hurt me that she chose him over me. Knowing she had already invited my family, why would she ask him on the trip? She claims she did nothing wrong. My sister has always been my best friend. I am so upset about this. How does our relationship recover? Miss My Sis in Pennsylvania Dear Miss: Your sister was both rude and inconsiderate. Regardless of what she says about not dating your ex-boyfriend, she is definitely interested in him. That may not be a wise move on her part, but shell have to learn the hard way. Tell her you are hurt, ask her not to do this again, and then try to forgive her. Dear Annie: This is in response to Fed-Up Mom, whose 18-year-old son refuses to brush his teeth. We had a similar experience. The lack of hygiene turned out to be the first warning sign that our son had mental illness. It took several years for more symptoms to appear, and by then, he was over 21 and we could no longer force him to get treatment. I suggest these parents check with their local NAMI chapter about what to watch for.

Santas get physical COPENHAGEN, Denmark The Olympics have pentathlons and so does the World Santa Congress, sort of. Santas from all over the world lugged their overweight waistlines to this years 54th World Santa Claus Congress, throwing sacks of presents and firing canon balls in a new physical fitness contest. The five-discipline event is the latest addition to the threeday conference at the worlds oldest amusement park: Bakken, just outside the Danish capital of Copenhagen. Two teams of St. Nicks one from Denmark and the other from the United States, Sweden, Russia, Germany and other countries competed Wednesday for the coveted trophy of Best Santa Team. The Danish Santas won. Aside from throwing presents, they also had to master a Christmas obstacle course, ride bumper cars and compete in a horse race game. Beauty queen HOOVER, Ala. When Alabamas newest beauty queen is crowned this week, she might have more silver hair than your average beauty pageant contestant. The Ms. Alabama Nursing Home pageant comes to a close Monday at the Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover. The top 10 finalists from nursing homes across the state will compete for the crown. Contestants will have 15minute interviews with a panel of judges and then answer a question on stage. The event will be co-hosted by Courtney Porter, who is Miss Alabama. There were 75 contestants vying for the pageant. The finalists were named in April. The judges include the commissioner of the states Medicaid agency and Ms. Senior Alabama Frankie Cashion. Doughnut trap COOKSON, Okla. Oklahoma wildlife officials say nothing traps a black bear quite like a doughnut. Wildlife officers are studying the growing black bear population in the eastern part of the state, and they said theyve had the best success in trapping the animals when they use pastries as bait. Craig Endicott of the Wildlife Department told Tulsa television station KOTV the agency usually finds 300-pound male bears and 200-pound females in its traps. But on a recent day, a 50-pound cub got to the doughnut first. The bears are tagged and researchers take fur and tissue samples for DNA analysis. Some adult bears get tracking collars. Researchers also are setting up about 200 bait stations equipped with hair snares. DNA from the hair will help map bears movement.Jarhead bearNEWPORT, Tenn. A black bear is back in the woods in Tennessee after getting help with a problem a plastic jar stuck on its head. State wildlife officers looked for the bear for three weeks after reports he was caught in the jug. The Knoxville News Sentinel said the male bear was roaming around Newport, in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. On July 17, wildlife officer Shelly Hammonds was checking another report of the bear when the animal ran in front of her vehicle. Hammonds fired a tranquillizer dart and the bear collapsed in downtown Newport. The bear weighed just 115 pounds, about half its expected weight. It was released into the Cherokee National Forest. Wildlife officials believe the bear got into the jar while foraging through garbage. Duck duty MEMPHIS, Tenn. The Peabody hotel in Memphis is seeking an assistant duckmaster to help care for its five famed mallards. The assistant would help head Duckmaster Jason Sensat feed and care for the ducks. The new hire also would guide the four hens and one drake on their two daily walks from their penthouse suite to the marble fountain in the hotel lobby. The walk, a tradition for 78 years, draws hundreds of spectators every day. The new hire would also be a concierge when not helping with the ducks. Jailed bride JACKSON, Mich. A woman arrested on her wedding day and jailed while wearing a white gown and veil has been arraigned on identity theft charges. The Jackson Citizen Patriot reported Wednesday that 53year-old Tammy Lee Hinton is accused of using or trying to use her sons identification to get phone and utility service, and a credit card. Jackson District Court Magistrate Frederick Bishop ordered Hinton held on a $100,000 bond. The theft was reported in 2009 and a warrant was issued. Hinton told Bishop on Wednesday she didnt know any of those things. Police said shed been living in Florida. Tortoise on a rollSPOKANE, Wash. Watch out Mr. Hare, this tortoise has a wheel. A 12-year-old African tortoise that recently had its front left leg amputated due to injury is now moving just fine, thanks to a swiveling wheel attached to his shell by doctors at Washington State Universitys veterinary hospital. The 23-pound tortoise, named Gamera after the giant flying turtle of the old Japanese monster movies, is gaining weight and generally thriving with his new appendage. I dont know whether hed pass the hare, but he moves around very well, said Charlie Powell, spokesman for WSUs veterinary hospital in Pullman, Wash. The nearly teenage mutant turtle is particularly good at moving toward food, and has gained 3 pounds since the wheel was attached, Powell said. The caster-style wheel should last for years before it has to be replaced, he said. Powell said the caster-style allows Gamera to move well on both flat and lumpy surfaces like lawns. The African spur-thighed tortoise was brought to the WSU hospital in April by its owner, suffering from a severe leg injury with an unknown cause, WSU officials said. The injury was life-threatening, so the leg was amputated at the shoulder. Veterinarians attached the wheel to the tortoises shell using an epoxy adhesive, and the animal took to the new device immediately, WSU officials said. The tortoise is part of a larger group called sulcata tortoises that are popular as exotic pets in the United States. The largest such tortoise on record topped 232 pounds. The oldest known sulcata tortoise in captivity is 56 years old. C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, J ULY25, 2011 B9 Classifieds Classifieds Classifieds In Print and Online All The Time!

The World Santa Claus Congress has taken place in the Dyrehavsbakken amusement park north of Copenhagen in Denmark since 1957. In this undated photo provided by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, a bear with a jar stuck on its head is seen in Cocke County, Tenn.

In this image provided by Washington State University, Gamera, a 12-year-old, African spur-thighed tortoise, shows off his new front leg July 15 at Washington State University in Pullman, Wash. Gamera had to have his leg removed after an infection set in. To aid in the tortoises recovery, doctors at WSUs Veterinary Teaching Hospital replaced Gameras leg with a small swiveling ball-type caster attached to its shell with an epoxy adhesive.
