Homosassa businessman dies Sunday in boat accident A man identified as Rob Phillips, owner of Eagle Buick GMC Inc. in Homosassa, died Sunday afternoon in a boating accident in the Homosassa River that involved eight other people. Sometime around 4 p.m., the Citrus County Sheriffs Office responded to the incident near Marker 19. A command center was set up at River Haven Marina off Halls River Road. Heather Yates, spokeswoman for the sheriffs office, said one man, aged between 45 and 47 years, had died. Sheriff Jeff Dawsy later said, We are the supporting agency, assisting the state on this matter, but I did talk with the operational lieutenant on scene and can confirm that the person killed in a boating accident today was in fact Mr. Rob Phillips. Eight other people were rescued, several of whom were injured, Yates said. One of those had severe injuries requiring being flown out for treatment. Yates said the cause of the accident was under investigation. The craft was some type of speedboat with three large outboard motors. Its a real tragedy, Dawsy said. Rob was a wonderful guy who did a lot of good things in his life. He was a real community-minded person who loved this county and donated his time and money in many ways. He is going to be truly missed. The sheriffs office notified the Coast Guard and Florida Fish and Wildlife. Associated PressTRIPOLI, Libya Libyan rebels raced into Tripoli in a lighting advance Sunday that met little resistance as Moammar Gadhafis defenders melted away and his 40-year rule appeared to rapidly crumble. The euphoric fighters celebrated with residents of the capital in the citys main square, the symbolic heart of the regime. Opposition fighters captured Gadhafis son and one-time heir apparent, Seif al-Islam. The prosecutor at the International Criminal Court in the Netherlands said he would contact the rebels to discuss his handover for trial on charges of crimes against humanity. Associated Press reporters with the rebels said the fighters easily advanced 20 miles on Sunday from the west, took town after town welcomed by residents overwhelmed a major military base, then swept into the capital in a stunning turning of the tide in the 6-month-old Libyan civil war. The fighters and Tripoli residents who support them flooded Green Square, shooting in the air in celebration, clapping and waving the rebels tri-color flag, according to television footage of the scene. Some set fire to the green flag of Gadhafis regime and shot holes in a poster with his image. Now we dont call it the Green Square, but we call it the Martyrs Square, said Nour Eddin Shatouni, a 50year-old engineer who was among the residents who flowed out of their homes to join the celebrations. We were waiting for the signal and it happened. All mosques chanted God is great all at once. We smelled a good scent, it is the smell of victory. We know it is the time.

Social Security disability on verge of insolvency Associated PressWASHINGTON Laidoff workers and aging baby boomers are flooding Social Securitys disability program with benefit claims, pushing the financially strapped system toward the brink of insolvency. Applications are up nearly 50 percent over a decade ago as people with disabilities lose their jobs and cant find new ones in an economy that has shed nearly 7 million jobs. The stampede for benefits is adding to a growing backlog of applicants many wait two years or more before their cases are resolved and worsening the financial problems of a program thats been running in the red for years. New congressional estimates say the trust fund that supports Social Security disability will run out of money by 2017, leaving the program unable to pay full benefits, unless Congress acts. About two decades later, Social Securitys much larger retirement fund is projected to run dry as well. Much of the focus in Washington has been on fixing Social Securitys retirement system. Proposals range from raising the retirement age to means-testing benefits for wealthy retirees. But the disability system is in much worse shape and its problems defy easy solutions. The trustees who oversee Social Security are urging Congress to shore up the disability system by reSee SECURITY / Page A9 See KINDERGARTEN / Page A9 Libyan rebels enter Tripoli INSIDE NEWS BRIEF ONLINE POLL: Your choice?Who stands the best chance of being nominated by the GOP for president?

Green Square holds profound symbolic value. The regime has held pro-Gadhafi rallies there nearly every night since the revolt began in February, and the historic Red Fort that overlooks the square is a favorite scenic spot for the Libyan leader to deliver speeches to his loyalists. Thousands of Libyans also celebrated in the streets of Benghazi, the rebels de facto capital in the east. Firing guns into the air and shooting fireworks, they cheered and waved the rebel tricolor flags, dancing and singing in the citys main square. Gadhafis whereabouts Sunday were unknown. But he delivered a series of angry and defiant audio messages broadcast on state television, calling on his supporters to march in the streets of the capital and purify it from the rats. He was not shown in the messages. His defiance raised the possibility of a last-ditch fight over the capital, home to 2 million people. Government spokesman Moussa Ibrahim claimed the regime has thousands and thousands of fighters and vowed: We will fight. We have whole cities on our sides. They are coming en masse to protect Tripoli to join the fight. But it appeared that key parts of Gadhafis military were peeling away. The rebels way into Tripoli was opened when the military unit in charge of protecting Gadhafi and the capital surrendered, ordering his troops to drop their weapons, the rebel information minister Mahmoud Shammam said. In a sign of the coordination among rebels, as the main force moved into the city from the west, a second force of 200 opposition fighters from the city of Misrata further east landed by boat in the capital, bringing weapons and ammunition for Tripoli residents who join the rebellion, said Munir Ramzi of the rebels military council in Misrata. The rebels speedy leap forward over just a few dramatic hours was a stunning reversal for Gadhafi, who earlier this month had seemed to have a firm grip on his stronghold in the western part of Libya, despite months of NATO airstrikes on his military. Rebels had been unable to make any advances for weeks, bogged down on the main fronts with regime troops in the east and center of the country. NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Gadhafis regime was clearly crumbling and the time to create a new democratic Libya has arrived. The sooner Gadhafi realizes that he cannot win the battle against his own people, the better, he said in a statement, adding that NATO will continue to strike his troops if they make any threatening moves toward the Libyan people. Gadhafi is the Arab worlds longest-ruling, most erratic, most grimly fascinating leader presiding for 42 years over this North African desert republic with vast oil reserves and just 6 million people. For years, he was an international pariah blamed for the 1988 bombing of a Pan Am jumbo jet over Lockerbie, Scotland, that killed 270 people. After years of denial, Gadhafis Libya acknowledged responsibility, agreed to pay up to $10 million to relatives of each victim, and declared he would dismantle all weapons of mass destruction. That eased him back into the international community.A2 M ONDAY, A UGUST 22, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE 0009259 458-0822-MCRN NOTICE OF INTENT TO CONSIDER A DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT Gulf to Lakes Associates, Ltd The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) proposes to consider the following development agreement: DA-11-01 Gulf to Lakes Associates, Ltd.

On Tuesday morning, the school board will hear how some of those programs are faring. The school board has a 9 a.m. workshop at the district administrative office in Inverness. The agenda includes a State of the District report on educational services. Staffers will report on such topics as FCAT results, student data and graduation results. Reports will also include updates on several specialized programs designed to keep students in school or working toward diplomas. Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel said the updates let school board members know how programs are performing. Board members can then discuss whether to continue the programs as is or change them. Were trying to take a proactive approach than a reactive, Himmel said. The goal is to keep them in school. Also Tuesday, Sheriff Jeff Dawsy will provide board members with an update on incorporating fire training classes with the public safety courses now provided at Withlacoochee Technical Institute. The school district and the sheriffs office already team up for classes and training at the WTI campus in Inverness. Training of firefighters would be an extension of that, Himmel said.

Board to review education programs State of the District report released on Tuesday S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterMoving across the parking lot like two bright rays of sunshine, 12-year-old Sydni Waters and her little sister, 7-year-old Harley, are greeted at the Citrus County Resource Center in Lecanto with hugs and smiles. Hi! Sydni says with a giant grin and an enthusiastic wave to every person she sees. The girls and their mother, Stefanie Waters, volunteer for the local home-delivered meals program every Friday. Their route takes them through a small portion of Beverly Hills to the homes of 11 to 13 homebound seniors. The home-delivered meals program serves 370 meals a day Monday through Friday. Those ages 60 and older who are unable to leave home without assistance are eligible for the program. While the program is free, those who can pay are encouraged to make a donation. For four years, Stefanie has been bringing her daughters, who are home schooled, with her to deliver the meals. However, Stefanie said, she was first introduced to the program when she worked with a home health care company and she did it for her job. After becoming a stay-athome mom, she said she really began to miss volunteering. So, she decided to return to the homedelivered meals program and bring her girls along to teach them about the importance of giving back to their community. I just think this is a really good thing to teach my kids, she said. Moreover, she said the elderly people they visit truly enjoy seeing the girls. A majority of them live alone and there are a few who have caregivers, but they rarely ever have the opportunity to be around children. They light up when they see my kids, she said. On this particular delivery day, the girls eagerly grabbed their trays to load them up with food before making a mad dash to the front door of Mr. Donalds home. Once inside, Mr. Donald hugged the girls and instructed them to pick out a calendar to take home while he struck up a conversation with Stefani. Several minutes later, Stefani, Sydni and Harley said goodbye and piled back into their SUV to make their next delivery. Down the street, the girls rushed to bring food to Patty Simmons, who was waiting outside to intercept the meals because she had more dogs in her house than usual. Stealing a few quick hugs from her adopted grandchildren, Simmons sung the praises of Stefani and her THE G IFTOFG IVING Mother teaches children with meal-delivery program daughters. This lady and her children bring so much sunshine into my life, she said. It really makes a difference, especially when youre a widow and you live alone. It takes Stefani and her daughters about an hour to complete their route. A few times they hand off the meals to caregivers. Other times, they take the time to hold brief conversations with those who rarely ever get visitors. You take it for granted sometimes, Stefani said. When asked why they liked volunteering, Sydni and Harley agreed it makes them feel good to know they have made a difference. Its a lot of fun and it helps other people, Harley said.

Associated PressASHEVILLE, N.C. The South has a shortage of workers to fill middle-skills jobs such as medical technicians and computer support workers, even as many four-year graduates struggle to repay student loans, according to a study released Sunday. The report released by the National Skills Coalition during the Southern Governors Association meeting in Asheville shows 51 percent of all jobs in the American South fall into the middleskills category, requiring education and training beyond high school but less than a four-year degree. Highly skilled jobs make up 29 percent of the job market; low-skill occupations make up 20 percent. What we are calling middle skills can actually be high-level skills, with some jobs paying $50 an hour, North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue said. Thats why I prefer to call them careerskill sets. In North Carolina, 51 percent of available jobs fall into the middle-skills category. The study says 43 percent of job seekers are able to meet those qualifications. Panelist James Wiseman, of Toyota Motors Corp., said his company struggles to find qualified workers for jobs as electricians, maintenance and tool and die technicians jobs that often pay between $50,000 and $75,000 a year. The regions average among all jobs for annual full-time pay is $38,900, according to the report. Gov. Jay Nixon of Missouri decried the expense of higher education, saying it forces many students to take on large student loans. Nixon said many college graduates spend five to 10 years repaying loans, and as a result cannot buy cars, homes or consumer goods. A report last fall indicated student debt in America had reached $850 billion, nearly $25 billion more than the nations consumer credit card debt load. Its hurting our economy, he said. Weve got to make sure that a students graduation gift is not debt. Several speakers at the governors business session Sunday debated the value of job-specific training versus a more liberal approach to post-secondary education. There is something to be said for learning for learnings sake, without regard to how it relates specifically to a job, said Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe. We have heard that what companies want is not necessarily someone with a specific skill, but somebody who can think and change directions from job to job and year to year. The study looked at 16 southern states plus Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. It shows 52 percent of employers in 2011 reported difficulty filling specific jobs within their operations, compared with 14 percent just a year earlier. Middleskill level occupations were named frequently among the top 10 hardest-to-fill jobs. Among those rising fastest were heating and air conditioning technicians, dental hygienists, environmental engineering technicians, firefighters and medical technologists. The study showed highly educated job seekers in North Carolina outnumbered available job openings, while middle-skill job openings exceeded the number of qualified workers. The study also indicates the shortage will continue to rise unless efforts are made to promote more training and education programs at the two-year colleges and technical schools. Perdue said North Carolina is working to identify business clusters where job demand is highest and partnering with public and private schools to train workers to gain those specific skills. The report to the governors group noted nearly two-thirds of the projected workforce in 2025 are already working today, underlining a need to retrain adults long past high school age. Sundays sessions concluded the three-day Southern Governors Association meeting. Puerto Rico Gov. Luis G. Fortuno assumed chairmanship of the group from Perdue. Next years meeting will take place in Puerto Rico. patriotism. Baltimore Sun columnist Luke Broadwater at the time presented Crystal River with the Wile E. Cayote Anvil of Reason award. If flying several patriotic flags on the side of a standalone is illegal, then the law needs to be changed, he wrote. One could even argue some flags should be encouraged by local governments, not discouraged. But city officials said it was a permitting rule aimed at keeping businesses from displaying too many flags to attract attention, and charges of lack of patriotism were unfounded and untrue. As a veteran, it angered me, too. So, we had the planning commission look at it, and they recommended retaining the rule as it is. I didnt like that, Farley said. Instead, he proposed this new ordinance, which would remove flags from the category of signs, where the law resides now, and make it stand alone. With the new ordinance, they can have an unlimited number (flags) as long as they display them properly, he said. The final public hearing on the issue will happen Sept. 12. The council also will consider an ordinance about the voluntary annexation into the city limits outparcels of the Plantation and changes in watering regulations. Chronicle reporter A.B.

to build Coast Guard ships, referred all questions about the program to the Coast Guard. Keith Little, a Lockheed spokesman, said the company is fulfilling existing contracts and has completed upgrades for several aircraft, along with building several others. We continue to meet delivery and performance milestones for existing Coast Guard contracts and are prepared to continue supporting the U.S. Coast Guard in its critical national security mission, said Little, whose companys work has focused on aircraft and technology. The program, known as Deepwater, appeared in trouble almost from the beginning. Early government audits criticized Coast Guard officials for a lack of oversight, which invariably led to early delays and cost increases. In essence the contractors were overseeing themselves, said Thompson, D-Miss. Hurricanes, including Katrina in 2005, led to delays at the Pascagoula, Miss., shipyard where many new ships are being built. In the early 2000s, the Coast Guard awarded a contract to Bollinger Shipyards Inc. to convert its 110-foot patrol boats to 123-foot vessels. Starting with eight ships, the contractor attached new steel to extend the hulls of the ships by 13 feet. The results were disastrous. What we found out was when you put new steel on old steel, it flexes, Papp said. Those patrol boats were unusable afterward and there was a chance of a catastrophic failure. Last month the Justice Department sued Bollinger Shipyards, accusing the Lockport, La., company of making material false statements to the Coast Guard about the hull strength of the converted ships. In a written statement, Bollinger said it has been open and cooperative with the government, and we remain committed to providing the government all necessary information and assistance to bring this matter to a close. The statement added the company was prepared to defend our good name aggressively in a court of law. The upgrades in question cost about $95 million and the eight boats had to be decommissioned. The Coast Guard took over management of the Deepwater program in 2007. By then, the new estimated price had risen from $17 billion to $24.2 billion. Cmdr. Matthew Lake, who works in the Coast Guards Office of Budget and Programs, insists the Coast Guard has learned from those earlier challenges and weve made significant improvements. The most recent Government Accountability Office report, published in July, concluded that while the Coast Guard has done a better job with oversight, the $24.2 billion program as envisioned in 2007 is no longer feasible, in terms of cost and schedule. The Coast Guard must address the weaknesses that auditors identified if the program is to move ahead, Thompson said. I think to come to Congress with an incomplete program will only push the improvements required that much father back, he said. LoBiondo said the Coast Guard needs to provide Congress with an accurate estimate and start meeting long-promised increased operational capabilities. Papp said the criticism was fair, but wishes auditors and legislators would focus more on whats been accomplished.

Edenzon, right, in Pascagoula, Miss. Papp said he envisions fully modern ships built in this century that dont require constant heavy maintenance. But he said he knows significant roadblocks remain. 2 new ships for $7B Associated PressPASCAGOULA, Miss. Nearly a decade into a 25-year, $24.2 billion overhaul intended to add or upgrade more than 250 vessels to its aging fleet, the Coast Guard has two new ships to show after spending $7 billion-plus. Now its facing an uphill battle persuading a budget-conscious Congress to keep pouring money into a project plagued by management problems and cost overruns. Congress wants to work with the Coast Guard to meet their needs for its myriad missions, but will not simply supply a blank check, said GOP Rep. Frank LoBiondo of New Jersey, chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure subcommittee that oversees the Coast Guard. By now the Coast Guard was supposed to have at least eight new ships four 418-foot national security cutters and four 154-foot cutters either in the water or about to be delivered. Instead it has only two of the largest ships already in use, with two ships more on the way. LoBiondo and others in Congress, including Rep. Bennie Thompson, the top Democrat on the House Homeland Security Committee, repeatedly have questioned the progress and scope of the fleet overhaul. Government auditors have concluded the Coast Guard still doesnt know the answers to those questions. The two completed ships and two more under production have cost about $2 billion. Much of the remaining $5 billion has been spent on new contracts for at least 10 more ships and improvements to more than two dozen older ships. The Coast Guard also used some of the money to buy and upgrade aircraft, though vessels were the programs primary focus. The modernization effort that began in earnest in 2002 was designed to replace ships from World War II, Korea and Vietnam. But within the first year, as Congress started to dole out billions of dollars for new-found homeland security concerns after the Sept. 11 attacks, Coast Guard officials realized their blueprint wasnt exactly what was needed. Ill be the first to admit, we werent prepared to start spending this money and supervising a project this big, said Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Robert Papp. Budget-cutting in the 1990s had left the service with few experts on buying new ships and other equipment. So the Coast Guard turned the project over to a joint venture between Northrup Grumman and Lockheed Martin. Huntington Ingalls Industries, a Northrup Grumman spin-off thats continuing

Heinz Pistoll Inverness Donate to decency Recently the Chronicle had a beautiful story concerning one dedicated and compassionate ladys mission with helping feral cats. As an animal lover and advocate, I applaud the Chronicles coverage to help the public be more aware of such an important undertaking, and certainly this wonderful effort in helping the feral cats. Any very devoted work of helping all creatures so deserving is absolutely vital in a society that has become so selfish, insensitive and nave. As humans, we are all tasked with the responsibility to care for all creatures so dependent. The amount of neglect, abuse, and lack of appreciation for their value is beyond our comprehension. Their entire existence relative to quality of life is so reliant on our awareness and concern to foster care and love. Our small personal sacrifices of time and money are so necessary and essential. We must understand this as simply the right thing to do. Our deeds in helping and sharing some of our own fortune bring real personal satisfaction. Keeping the animal population manageable through spaying and neutering is critically important. There are several agencies that provide that service to animal owners at reasonable costs, one being the Humane Society of Florida (humanesocietyofflorida.org). This hardworking rescue operation in Floral City on (U.S.) 41 offers this vet service on site by appointment. There are others (who) can be easily identified and located. Pet owners who allow uncontrolled breeding just to make a few dollars as well as the greedy commercial puppy mills must simply stop from adding to the problem. As was mentioned, animals do not choose to enter this world and have so little control over their destiny and well-being. We all must step up. The task of animal welfare is too great for one person to do it along. We are all living in difficult times, more for animals than for us. Please understand this need and participate in this cause by volunteering at rescues, making donations, and whatever else is necessary for their care and survival.Robert W. Peacock Hernando Marguerita Grill I am from Wyoming, and the first place I ate was Marguerita Grill. What a beautiful place, right on the water. Could not believe the water! It is so dry in Wyoming.

Dont miss a moment of the high fashion, high drama and hijinks as Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns for Season 2. Join the pampered princesses of the worlds most famous ZIP code as they struggle with questions all the money in the world cannot answer. Can sisters Kim and Kyle repair their broken relationship after last seasons fight? Can Camille find happiness in her new life without Kelsey? And, what will Taylor do when she finds out her estranged husband committed suicide after seeing his private life played out as a cheesy soap opera to sell hemorrhoid medicine and feminine hygiene products to a mass audience? Maybe you find the foregoing an unsuitably cynical response to last weeks news that a fellow named Russell Armstrong hanged himself and that people around him blame it on the pressures of seeing his wife, reality star Taylor Russell, file for divorce as his finances crumbled (the Los Angeles Times calls him a struggling entrepreneur with a $12 million debt) and an audience looked on. But it seems to me the real cynicism is embodied in a TV shows decision to treat peoples actual lives and misfortunes as entertainment. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I think, was (Russells) downfall, a friend named William Ratner told the Los Angeles Times The TV show put a lot of pressure on him to produce financially. Youre on a show with a couple like the Maloofs, who are verifiable billionaires, and youre not. The reference was to Housewife Adrienne Maloof, whose family owns the Sacramento Kings basketball team. The program itself, Russells mother, John Ann Hotchkiss, told CNNs Headline News, just really brought him down. She said her son was constantly bashed on the show and could do nothing about it because the conflict generated ratings. All the network cares about are ratings, she said. They dont care how people feel. Nor is Russell reality TVs first meltdown. Jon and Kate Gosselin got divorced. Singer Fantasia Barrino tried to commit suicide. Danielle Staub thought about it. I was very close to taking my own life not just on one occasion its been several times, the former cast member of Real Housewives of New Jersey recently told Entertainment Tonight. I dont have words to describe how alone you feel when everybodys coming at you and judging you and they dont even know you. Now theres this. And you wonder if, even at this price, we will finally realize that other peoples lives are not a car crash we slow down to watch on the freeway. This brand of television is the moral equivalent of those bum fight videos where homeless men are paid to scrap on camera and the video is posted online. There is something similarly predatory in searching out these troubled people, these drunks and narcissists, these self-centered, superficial plastic surgery junkies, these screechers and whiners and perpetual adolescents with daddy, esteem or anger management issues, and paying them to let us watch as they implode. There is something reprehensible in the watching, too. Reality, they call it. Well, a man is dead and it looks like TV played a part. Is that real enough?

Government began testing nearly 700 wells in the northwest portion of the county when it was discovered a woman in the area tested positive for arsenic in her hair a sign of long-term exposure. The state, through its Drinking Water Toxics program, partners with other government agencies to provide testing and filtering to affected wells. The tests do not reveal the source of the arsenic, which can be caused by manmade activities such as cattle dipping or the dumping of toxic materials; or can be naturally occurring. Arsenic can be cancer-causing and should be taken seriously. Government is doing the right thing by providing free testing within the problem area, but we would ask it expand the initiative if it discovers other locations with high concentrations of arsenic in the soil. Although there are some who believe naturally occurring deposits are the culprit, those in the area can recount the dumping of hazardous materials in the Yankeetown area and are quite familiar with the practice of cattle dipping back when our region was known for its open ranges. It is a primary responsibility of government to provide for the safety of its residents, and the occurrence of harmful materials in the drinking water falls within that realm of responsibility. So you know, the Environmental Health Section samples water for free if the well is in the problem area it is investigating; or, if Department of Environmental Protection officials ask for a sample; or, if a doctor asks for a sample as part of diagnostic testing. Environmental Health also offers a sampling kit for residents to have their well tested for bacteria or toxic substances for a fee. For information on the Drinking Water Toxics program or the regular well water test kit, call (352) 527-5283.

the lunch line, making sure each has her milk and doesnt drop his tray. One boy is distraught because he accidentally switched lunches with his third-grade brother. Mrs. Reyes quickly assesses the problem and assures her young charge that she will take care of it. She takes his lunch and walks briskly to a thirdgrade classroom down a long hallway. Mrs. Reyes explains to the teacher the mix-up, makes the lunch switch and returns a hero to the lunchroom. Then its a quick walk back to her classroom. Children have 25 minutes for lunch. Teachers, more like 10. We inhale lunch in the hallways, she jokes. Mrs. Reyes is married with two children, ages 3 and 8. She has taught kindergarten for 10 years. The goal at years end, she says, is independence. Mrs. Reyes wants children to begin thinking for themselves, to use the numbers and sight words attached to classroom walls to answer their questions, rather than constantly asking the teacher. By the middle of the year, theyll be going to the dictionary, she says. This is a learning environment. If they feel real good about themselves, theyre going to learn. One of her pupils is painfully shy. Mrs. Reyes notices every improvement, no matter how slight. We want to make a difference in her life, Mrs. Reyes says. Im getting her to feel comfortable. I hope I can connect to her. Shes looking at me now, sitting next to me. These little steps mean so much. Mrs. Reyes loves teaching kindergarten. You see the most growth, she says.

Physically, mentally, its all there. allocating money from the retirement program, just as lawmakers did in 1994. That would provide only shortterm relief at the expense of weakening the retirement program. Claims for disability benefits typically increase in a bad economy because many disabled people get laid off and cant find a new job. This year, about 3.3 million people are expected to apply for federal disability benefits. Thats 700,000 more than in 2008 and 1 million more than a decade ago. Its primarily economic desperation, Social Security Commissioner Michael Astrue said in an interview. People on the margins who get bad news in terms of a layoff and have no other place to go and they take a shot at disability, The disability program is also being hit by an aging population disability rates rise as people get older as well as a system that encourages people to apply for more generous disability benefits rather than waiting until they qualify for retirement. Retirees can get full Social Security benefits at age 66, a threshold gradually rising to 67. Early retirees can get reduced benefits at 62. However, if you qualify for disability, you can get full benefits, based on your work history, even before 62. Also, people who qualify for Social Security disability automatically get Medicare after two years, even if they are younger than 65, the age when other retirees qualify for the government-run health insurance program. Congress tried to rein in the disability program in the late 1970s by making it tougher to qualify. The number of people receiving benefits declined for a few years, even during a recession in the early 1980s. Congress, however, reversed course and loosened the criteria, and the rolls were growing again by 1984. The disability program got into trouble first because of liberalization of eligibility standards in the 1980s, said Charles Blahous, one of the public trustees who oversee Social Security. Then it got another shove into bigger trouble during the recent recession. Today, about 13.6 million people receive disability benefits through Social Security or Supplemental Security Income. Social Security is for people with substantial work histories, and monthly disability payments average $927. Supplemental Security Income does not require a work history, but it has strict limits on income and assets. Monthly SSI payments average $500. As policymakers work to improve the disability system, they are faced with two major issues: Legitimate applicants often have to wait years to get benefits while many others get payments they dont deserve. Last year, Social Security detected $1.4 billion in overpayments to disability beneficiaries, mostly to people who got jobs and no longer qualified, according to a recent report by the Government Accountability Office, the investigative arm of Congress. Congress is targeting overpayments. The deficit reduction package enacted this month would allow Congress to boost Social Securitys budget by about $4 billion over the next decade to invest in programs that identify people who no longer qualify for disability benefits. The Congressional Budget Office estimates increased enforcement would save nearly $12 billion over the next decade. At the same time, the application process can be a nightmare for legitimate applicants. About two-thirds of initial applications are rejected. Most of these people drop their claims, but for those willing go through an appeals process that can take two years or more, chances are good they eventually will get benefits. Astrue has pledged to reduce processing times for applicants appeals, and he has had some success, even as the number of claims skyrockets. The number of people waiting for decisions has increased, but their wait times are going down. Its ludicrous to say that the backlog problem is getting worse, Astrue said. The backlog problem has gotten dramatically better.C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, A UGUST 22, 2011 A9 B 10 I 19 For a Day or Night of Fun and to Meet New Friends. Come and Play!

Both the company and the union say they have agreed to narrow the issues in dispute and have set up a process to negotiate a new contract. But the talks are likely to be contentious. The two sides still disagree on touchy subjects such as health care benefits, pensions and work rules. About 45,000 employees went on strike Aug. 7, after their previous contract expired. They work in the companys landline division in nine states from Massachusetts to Virginia. Verizon says it needs to cut costs in the traditional landline phone business.

From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEF N ATION & W ORLD Page A10 MONDAY, AUGUST 22, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressNEW YORK The stock market is starting to feed economic fear, not just reflect it. Stocks have fallen four weeks in a row. Some on Wall Street worry the resulting blow to confidence, not to mention 401(k) statements, has set off a spiral of fear that could push prices even lower, cause people and businesses to pull back and tip the economy into a new recession. Im nervous that fear will lead companies to stop hiring and people to stop spending, said Jim Paulsen, chief investment strategist of Wells Capital Management, famous for his usually bullish take on the markets. A home sales report this past week showed more sales than usual fell apart at the last minute, which suggests plunging stocks and dismal economic news gave buyers cold feet. At least 16 percent of deals were canceled ahead of closings last month, four times the rate in May. Beth Ann Bovino, senior economist at Standard & Poors, said another big plunge in stocks could push us closer to the brink. The Standard & Poors 500 stock index ended Friday at 1,123.53, down 5 percent for the week. The average is down 16 percent during the four-week losing streak. One reason for the drop is fear another recession, if not certain, is more likely now. The run of bad economic news started last month when the government said the economy grew much more weakly in the first half of this year than thought. Growth, at an annual rate of 0.8 percent, was the slowest since the Great Recession ended in June 2009. The economic weakness has made investors more likely to sell stocks at the first hint things are getting worse. And last week, they got signs aplenty. A regional survey by the Federal Reserve said manufacturing had slowed in the mid-Atlantic states by the most in more than two years. Existing home sales fell in July for the third time in four months. Another report showed exports from Japan, the worlds third-biggest economy, had slumped for the fifth straight month. Japan is still reeling from the effects of an earthquake and tsunami in March. The housing market, which usually helps lead an economic recovery, keeps getting worse. The plunging stock market and scary economic news wont make it any better. What youre seeing with the economy, on the job front its scaring a lot of people, said Brian Fine, a loan manager at Mortgage Master in Rockville, Md. He says the housing market will languish until buyers and sellers feel more secure about the economy. People are really motivated by larger economic trends. Its all about if you feel confident enough to buy a home right now, he said.

Impossible, right? GOP lawmakers are so virulently anti-tax, surely they will fight to prevent a payroll tax increase on virtually every wage-earner starting Jan. 1, right? Apparently not. Many of the same Republicans who fought hammerand-tong to keep the George W. Bush-era income tax cuts from expiring on schedule are now saying a different temporary tax cut should end as planned. By their own definition, that amounts to a tax increase. The tax-break extension they oppose is sought by President Barack Obama. Unlike proposed changes in the income tax, this policy helps the 46 percent of all Americans who owe no federal income taxes but who pay a payroll tax on practically every dime they earn. There are other differences as well, and Republicans say their stand is consistent with their goal of long-term tax policies that will spur employment and lend greater certainty to the economy. Its always a net positive to let taxpayers keep more of what they earn, said Rep. Jeb Hensarling, but not all tax relief is created equal for the purposes of helping to get the economy moving again. The Texas lawmaker is on the House GOP leadership team. The debate is likely to boil up in coming weeks as a special bipartisan committee seeks big deficit reductions and weighs which tax cuts are sacrosanct. At issue is a tax the vast majority of workers pay, but many dont recognize because they dont read, or dont understand their pay stubs. Workers normally pay 6.2 percent of their wages toward a tax designated for Social Security. Their employer pays an equal amount, for a total of 12.4 percent per worker. As part of a bipartisan spending deal last December, Congress approved Obamas request to reduce the workers share to 4.2 percent for one year; employers rate did not change. Obama wants Congress to extend the reduction for an additional year. If not, the rate will return to 6.2 percent Jan. 1. Lawmakers to debate payroll tax increase soon Associated PressOSLO, Norway Norways prime minister urged his countrymen to look after each other and be vigilant for intolerance, as the nation concluded a monthlong mourning period with a candlelit memorial service Sunday to the 77 people killed by a right-wing extremist. Speaking at the ceremony in Oslo, Jens Stoltenberg said we need you. No matter where you live, no matter which god you worship, each and every one of us can take responsibility and can guard freedom. Anders Behring Breivik, a 32-yearold Norwegian, has admitted to carrying out the July 22 killings first detonating a car bomb that killed eight people outside government offices in Oslo, and then shooting dead 69 others at a youth camp on the island of Utoya, about 25 miles away. The prime minister, who received standing ovations from the 6,700 relatives, survivors and officials in the audience during his speech, said together we are an unbreakable chain of care, democracy and safety that is our protection against violence. Today time stops in order to remember those who died, Stoltenberg added. We do it as one nation. Every candle has warmed, every thought has comforted, every rose has given hope. We are a small country, but we are a large people. Norwegian singer-songwriter Susanne Sundfoer opened the memorial service with a heartfelt performance of a popular Norwegian song My Little Country, which has taken on special significance since the terror attacks, and left many in the audience quietly wiping away tears. Addressing the somber gathering, Norways King Harald said he felt for each person in the country, but that he was certain Norway would surmount its pain. I firmly believe that we will uphold our ability to live freely and securely in our country, he said. 77 killed in Norway massacre remembered Aiming to serve Associated Press Survivors and relatives of those killed in the Utoya shooting massacre on July 22 visit Utoya island on Friday. Associated PressNORTHRIDGE, Calif. Keith Nolan spent a decade applying repeatedly to the Armys Reserve Officers Training Corps program before the deaf mans tenacity paid off and a commander finally let him audit the classes. Nolan became a top performer in the ROTC programs Bravo Company at California State University at Northridge, and his instructors were so impressed they let him wear a uniform. He was distraught when he turned it back in and said goodbye to the other cadets in May. He could advance no further under the militarys current policy that requires cadets pass a hearing test to be commissioned by the Army. It was a stinging moment that burned in the soul of the bespectacled 29-year-old teacher, who is determined to break that barrier and achieve his lifetime dream of working in military intelligence. All I really want to do is join the Army, said Nolan, a confident, clean-cut man with a boyish face who signed to an interpreter in an interview at the universitys ROTC office. He was flanked by posters with inspirational messages urging people to join. I want to do my duty, serve my country and experience that camaraderie, and I cant, owed to the fact that Im deaf. Soldiers with disabilities have been returning to active duty in increasing numbers due largely to the fact that medical advances today are ensuring more people survive serious war injuries. All branches of the U.S. armed forces over the past decade have started offering the opportunity for seriously wounded or disabled service members to remain on active duty by finding them jobs they can perform. Today about 300 seriously wounded service members some of whom have been blinded by blasts, lost their limbs or have severe head injuries work in a variety of Army positions, and their work has been vital, especially in aiding other recovering troops, said Erich Langer, a spokesman with the Armys Warrior Transition Command in Alexandria, Va.

NFL, MLB/ B2 MLB Baseball/ B3 Lottery, TV/B4 Scoreboard/ B4 Entertainment/ B5 Classifieds/ B8 S PORTS Section B MONDAY, AUGUST 22, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressMASON, Ohio Novak Djokovics remarkable winning streak ended with a grimace, one that puts a new spin on the U.S. Open. The worlds top-ranked player was forced to retire in the second set Sunday because of a sore right shoulder, giving Andy Murray the championship at the Western & Southern Open. It was the Serbs first bad moment in his 57-2 season. Djokovic had won 16 consecutive matches since his only previous loss of the season in the semifinals against Roger Federer on June 3 at Roland Garros. The winning streak has taken a toll. Djokovic talked about feeling exhausted in Cincinnati, coming off his record fifth Masters series title in Montreal last week. He said his serving shoulder had bothered him for about the last 10 days, but hed been able to manage the soreness and keep winning. On Sunday, he couldnt go on. There is no good loss, thats for sure, Djokovic. The good thing is theres a week, eight days to the start of the Open. Im confident I can recover and be ready for the U.S. Open. He was completely off his game against the fourthseeded Murray, won the first set 6-4 and was ahead 3-0 in the second when Djokovic decided just before the rain came that he couldnt continue. Djokovic got his shoulder treated after he lost the first set, grimacing at one point. With his serve registering only in double-digits and his forehand limited by the pain, Djokovic realized he couldnt compete. He said he would have retired even if the rain had temporarily stopped the match. I could have maybe played another couple of games, but what for? he said. I cannot beat a player like Murray today with one stroke. It was Murrays second title this season. The 24year-old Scotsman also won at the Queens Club. He lost his other final match to Djokovic at the Australian Open. Djokovic felt worn-down heading into the final, the strain of all those recent matches catching up with him. He said his loathing for losing was pulling him through matches. It wasnt enough on Sunday. Djokovic was off his game at the outset, repeatedly hitting forehands, backhands and volleys everywhere but in the court. Murray broke his serve to open the match and won 10 of the first 12 points. Could Djokovic win another one while running on fumes and playing with a bum shoulder? By the end of the first set, he knew the answer. I was generally exhausted playing many matches, but the exhaustion is not the reason, Djokovic said. The reason is shoulder pain. I just could not serve. Murray was more rested, though not by choice. He lost in the opening round at Montreal a week ago, giving him unwanted time to relax and work on his game. The break seemed to help he didnt lose a set all week in Cincinnati. I had five or six days to get ready here, said Murray, who won his first Masters series championship in Cincinnati in 2008. Ive always played well on this court. With the crowd behind him, Djokovic got back into the match by breaking Murray to tie the first set at 3. Murray broke him right back, ending a long baseline rally by coming to the net for a put-away volley. Djokovic walked around the court with a blank expression, his mouth open. His demeanor said he was in trouble. Djokovic made 20 unforced errors in the first set, which ended when he dumped a routine forehand into the net. Djokovic squatted in disappointment, then went to his chair and took a timeout to have a trainer stretch his right arm and shoulder.Before Miamis mess, there was SMUs death penalty Associated PressIf you think the emerging scandal at Miami is the worst college football has ever endured, you might not remember SMU. Even now, what happened at Southern Methodist University in the 1980s casts a shadow over the Miami case, the most startling to come from college footballs assembly line of embarrassments in recent years. A former University of Miami booster and convicted Ponzi scheme artist says he provided Hurricanes players with cash, prostitutes, cars and other gifts from 2002 to 2010, and that several coaches knew and even participated as improper benefits were handed out. The Yahoo Sports story about Nevin Shapiros self-described misdeeds has many fans asking whether Miami if the allegations are found to be true could be in danger of having its football program shut down by the NCAA. The so-called death penalty has only been handed down once, to SMU. SMU players had been getting paid with funds provided by boosters for years, and top school officials not just coaches were involved. In the nine years I served on the (NCAA) committee on infractions I never saw another one that was even close to what occurred in the SMU case, said University of Oklahoma law professor David Swank, a former NCAA vice president. As serious as the Miami case See DEATH / Page B4 Sharapova survives letdown, wins Cincy Associated PressCINCINNATI No meltdown for Maria Sharapova in this Cincinnati final. She put five sterling points together, and that was enough. Sharapova overcame a firstset letdown on Sunday, rallying to beat Jelena Jankovic 4-6, 7-6 (3), 6-3 for the championship of the Western & Southern Open. The fourthseeded Russian survived a match full of service breaks 16 in all, seven in the final set alone for her second title of the season. Sharapovas best moments came in the tiebreaker, when she won the last five points to even the match. Thats pretty much it, putting five points together that were well-played, she said. Such stretches were rare in a ragged match that lasted 2 hours, 49 minutes and had a pair of brief rain delays. The 14th-ranked Jankovic extended her streak of 17 months without a singles title. She won in Cincinnati in 2009, but hasnt gotten a championship since Indian Wells on March 21 last year. This match could have gone either way, she said. I had my chances. It showed the match is not over until you shake the hand. Jankovic shook hands and then sat in her chair after the match, biting a white towel while staring straight ahead, thinking about what had just happened. The match ended when her baseline forehand sailed wide. Despite the loss, Jankovic was upbeat. She came to Cincinnati feeling rusty and lacking confidence after playing few matches lately and having little success. Im pretty unpredictable, she said. If somebody told me I was going to play a final here, I would right away sign the paper. It was a sweet about-face for Sharapova, who reached the finals in Cincinnati last year against Kim Clijsters. Associated PressGREENSBORO, N.C. Webb Simpson grew up in North Carolina, and his favorite memory of the Wyndham Championship was caddying for Neal Lancaster as a teenager during a pro-am. That might change now that hes won the tournament. Simpson claimed his first PGA Tour title Sunday, shooting a 3-under 67 to win by three strokes. The 26-year-old Raleigh native finished at 18-under 262 and collected $936,000 in the tournament about a 30mile drive from the Wake Forest campus where he was a college star. I really couldnt think of a better place to win than here in Greensboro, Simpson said. George McNeill (64) was at 15 under, with Tommy Gainey (69) another stroke back in the final event before the PGA Tour playoffs. Carl Pettersson (69), Vijay Singh (65), Jerry Kelly (65), Kyung-tae Kim (66) and Charles Howell III (67) finished at 13 under at Sedgefield Country Club. Simpson said his first visit to the Greensboro-based tournament came when he was 16. His father brought him to the events former home across town at Forest Oaks Country Club to caddie for Lancaster during the Wednesday pro-am. That was probably the most fun 18 holes Ive ever been a part of, Simpson said. His final 18 of this tournament were marked by steady, bogey-free play and a strong finish marked by consecutive birdies on Nos. 15 and 16. After taking the lead during Round 3 with a late five-hole stretch of four birdies and an eagle, Simpson opened his final round with eight straight pars before moving to 16 under with a birdie on the par-4 ninth. He stayed there until late in the day. Birdies on the par-5 15th and the par-3 16th gave him a three-shot lead with two holes to go. When I made the putt on 15, I asked my caddie for the first time all day, Where do we stand? and he said, Were two ahead right now, Simpson said. I knew I needed to play solid golf on the last three holes, and to birdie 16 was so huge. ... I knew I had a threeshot lead on 18, and as soon as I hit the ball in play, I knew it was probably over. McNeill made a late charge, with the former Florida State player moving to 15 under with a birdie on No. 17, his sixth birdie of the round. But all he could do after that was hope for a few late bogeys from Simpson. Honestly, I thought it was going to be a lot lower, McNeill said of the winning score. I can only control myself. I cant control what everybody else does. Im very happy with the way I hit it, the way I played, the way I putted.

Kyle Busch won his 23rd race on NASCARs Sprint Cup circuit, pulling even with brother Kurt in career victories. Now, Kyle would like to match another of Kurts accomplishments winning a series title. Hes always still got that carrot over me, Kyle Busch said. Certainly, being the younger brother, Ive had a little bit shorter time being here, but still, its great to see both of us be as competitive as weve been and as successful as weve been. Kyle Busch outlasted Jimmie Johnson on Sunday in a greenwhite-checkered finish at Michigan International Speedway, winning his fourth Cup race of the year. Busch leads the series standings by 10 points over Johnson and is assured of a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Kurt Busch won the series championship in 2004. Now, his 26-year-old brother might be the driver with the best chance of ending Johnsons five-year hold on the title. There are three races remaining before the 10race Chase begins. Certainly weve built ourselves into championship contenders this year, Kyle Busch said. Theres a great opportunity for us to win three more races before the Chase starts. Wed love nothing more than to see that, and of course carry on our strong runs through the final 10 weeks. Its just a matter of being consistent. Kyle Busch passed Johnson with about a dozen laps remaining and was opening up a comfortable margin when Kurt Busch scraped a wall, forcing a caution from laps 198-201. The yellow flag erased much of Kyle Buschs lead, but he was able to fight off a quick move from Johnson after the restart and pull away. It was Buschs first Cup win at Michigan.

B2 M ONDAY, A UGUST 22, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S PORTS Police seek witnesses after SF stadium shootings Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO Police interviewed witnesses and looked for suspects Sunday after two men were shot and wounded following a San Francisco 49ers-Oakland Raiders preseason game, while the NFL and the mayors of the two cities jointly called for an end to intimidation and acts of violence at sporting events. Saturday nights shooting in the parking lot at Candlestick Park evoked memories of another recent disturbing act of post-game violence involving two rival California pro sports teams the nearfatal beating this spring of a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium. In Saturdays attacks, a 24-year-old man, who reportedly was wearing a F the Niners T-shirt, remained hospitalized in serious condition Sunday after being shot several times in the stomach. He managed to stumble to Candlestick Park stadium security for help despite the severe injuries, police said. A second victim, a 20year-old man, was treated for less serious wounds in a separate shooting, also after the game. Sgt. Mike Andraychak said no arrests have been made and that police are looking for a person of interest connected to at least one of the shootings. He would not specify which shooting. A motive for either attack including whether either was influenced by emotions surrounding a game involving fiercely rival teams also wasnt known. Apart from the shootings, a third victim, a 26-year-old man, was also hospitalized in serious condition Sunday after he was knocked unconscious in a stadium bathroom during the game. That attack appeared unrelated to the other two, police said. The victims names have not been released as the violent spree overshadowed the 49ers 17-3 victory over the Raiders. The crimes prompted San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and Oakland Mayor Jean Quan to issue a joint statement saying that violence at stadiums in both cities will not be tolerated. The incidents ... are completely unacceptable and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, the mayors said. Fans come to our stadiums to enjoy an afternoon of football, not to be subjected to intimidation or violence. These games are family events and the types of images we witnessed last night have no place in our arenas. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello echoed similar comments, saying we deplore the activities of a handful of fans at last nights game and pledge our full support to Mayors Lee and Quan and to state and local law enforcement agencies. 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, who once was a coach in the Raiders organization, said he was saddened to hear about the violence. I didnt know anything was going on during the game. I wasnt aware of that, Harbaugh said. I feel bad for the people who got injured and the people who had to see that, for those who had to witness it. The team said that these kinds of events are disquieting to everyone in the Bay Area community. We are working to assist the San Francisco Police Department in any way possible to understand how and why this happened. Raiders CEO Amy Trask said in a statement that the incidents at last nights game are not acceptable to the Raiders or to any National Football League team and our thoughts are with all affected. Head Coach Hue Jackson also shared his desire for a safe fan-friendly environment where we wish that people come out and enjoy a game and hopefully that those things dont happen. On Saturday, Sgt. Frank Harrell said the man shot wearing the T-shirt drove his truck to a gate and stumbled to stadium security. A second man shot before that in the parking lot and had superficial face injuries, Harrell said. Associated PressSOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. The boys from Billings have the perfect excuse to miss the start of school Wednesday back home in Montana they keep winning at the Little League World Series. Patrick Zimmer tossed five shutout innings and Ben Askelson hit a twoout, two-run single in a 3-1 win over Lafayette, La., on Sunday that kept the Northwest region champs undefeated in South Williamsport. Its not a bad start for the first team from Montana to qualify for youth baseballs biggest tournament, even though the players didnt think they would get here. We were just kind of hoping to make it to the regional tournament, said Ian Leatherberry, 12, who added an insurance run in the sixth with a two-out, RBI double. That was our ultimate goal, and then we got even farther. School begins this week, and if everything breaks right, they might miss even more classes if they advance to the championship game Aug. 28. Are the players disappointed they wont be in school? Zimmer, Askelson, Leatherberry and closer Sean Jones immediately responded in unison with an emphatic No! In the other early game Sunday, Yonny Hernandez hit two homers and three pitchers combined for a shutout to help Maracay, Venezuela, stay unbeaten with an 8-0 win over Langley, British Columbia. Huntington Beach, Calif., pounded out 12 hits in routing LaGrange, Ky., 10-0 later Sunday, with Mexicali, Mexico beating Hamamatsu City, Japan, 3-2 in seven innings in the nightcap on Bruno Ruizs two-out RBI single. Hagen Danner and Nick Pratto combined to two-hit Kentucky over four innings before the game was called due to Little Leagues 10-run rule. Pratto and Ryo Takeda each knocked in two runs to lead the way. Jacob Bates and Zach Nicholas had Kentuckys hits, but afterward Kentucky manager Brad Bates was impressed by Californias minimashers. They put the ball in the gaps and put the ball in play. Thats baseball, said the skipper, Jacobs father. Weve done the same thing to the other teams in the regionals. Its baseball. California moves next to face Montana on Wednesday night in a matchup of the last two undefeated U.S. teams. California won the West region, while Montana won the Northwest though both tournaments are played in San Bernardino, Calif. The teams stayed in the same dorm during regionals and the players bonded. Im excited to play Montana. Of course we want to win, Pratto said. Well be talking to each other out there. Whatever happens, well still be friends. Effective pitching, clutch hitting and timely defense have carried them through to make them the most successful Little League team to come out of Montana. Even manager Gene Carlson said he was a little surprised his team started 2-0 at the World Series. But once we got here, we knew we belonged, Carlson said before turning to his players. They can play with anybody. Zimmer struck out four before Jones came on to pitch the sixth and immediately got into trouble. Louisianas Nick Fruge reached on a three-base error, then scored on a wild pitch. Later Cain Castille, who finished 3 for 3, doubled with two outs to put the tying run at the plate, but Jones got a fielders choice to end the game. We hit the ball, not as well as we wanted us to, but we hit at people, too, Louisiana manager Leland Padgett said. Thats baseball, theres nothing you can do about that. Louisiana lost for the first time in tournament play, though Padgett not too upset about it. The most important thing if youre 12 years old is learning how to lose, not win. Winning is easy, the skipper said. Its how you lose that makes the character of a man, and thats what were trying to teach these kids, though were trying to teach a little baseball, too. Venezuela 8, Canada 0The 5-foot-6 Hernandez, 13, has become one of tournaments most feared hitters with five hits and six RBIs over his first two games. After a slow start at the plate for Venezuela, Hernandez hit a two-run blast in the fifth before adding his second tworun shot in the sixth off Canada. Venezuela manager Gustavo Narvaez said his squad was anxious the first few innings. My mind was telling myself that I needed to make the adjustments and look at the details of the pitcher, Hernandez said through an interpreter about adjusting to Canada starter Yi-Fan Pan. I knew he was opening with curveball and then a fastball. I had a confidence ... that I was going to see one of those pitches. Ian Burns had two hits for Canada, while first baseman Riley Ens made a defensive gem with an over-theshoulder catch in shallow right to prevent a potential extra-base hit in the first. Mexico 3, Japan 2 Yes we can! Yes we can, Mexicos fans chanted in Spanish after Jorge Jacobo trotted home with the winning run. He scored after Ruizs grounder bounced through the hole into left field. A jubilant Ruiz, 13, couldnt stop smiling after he reached first, mobbed by teammates along the first-base line after the hit kept Mexico unbeaten in the tournament. Two of the tournaments top international teams matched each other for six-plus innings, with Japan starter Yoshiki Suzuki striking out seven and Mexico counterpart Alonso Garcia fanning six. Move to SEC could separate Aggies from state Associated PressCOLLEGE STATION, Texas Texas A&M always has been in a league with a solid foothold in Texas since joining the Southwest Conference in 1914. The Junction Boys, the 12th Man and the Aggies military culture are all part of the rich and storied tradition Texas A&M has built while playing in a conference with several other teams in the Lone Star State. Now that A&M is looking to ride away from the Big 12 and its longtime rivals and into the Southeastern Conference, questions abound about what this would mean for the university and the Texas teams left in its wake. Some worry that a departure by the Aggies would jeopardize the future of the Big 12, which already is down to 10 teams. Texas A&M moved to the Big 12 after 82 years in the Southwest Conference, but always has competed in a conference with rival Texas and Baylor. The Aggies have played against fellow state school Texas Tech since the Red Raiders joined the SWC in 1958. In this football crazy state, many are worried about what a departure by Texas A&M would mean for the annual football game, now held on Thanksgiving night, between the Aggies and Texas. The teams first met in football in 1894 and the rivalry is one of the oldest and most spirited in college football. Its a highlight of the season in the state and a tradition those in Texas and beyond would hate to lose. Countless football memories are linked to the annual meeting. Coach Paul Bear Bryants 1954 team, which survived his grueling and now storied camp in Junction, Texas, played the Longhorns. Texas A&Ms only Heisman Trophy winner, John David Crow, was a member of the first Aggie team to beat Texas at Memorial Stadium in 1956. It was against the Aggies in 1998 that the Longhorns Ricky Williams broke the Division I-A career rushing record in a 26-24 win. The Aggies want to figure out a way to keep the game on the schedule, even if they bolt. But with so many variables, theres a chance it could be eliminated. If we were to negotiate with another conference SEC or anybody else a primary criterion would be our ability to continue a nonconference contest each year and hopefully on Thanksgiving Day or thereabouts with our friends at UT-Austin, Texas A&M President R. Bowen Loftin said last week. Thats a historic rivalry. We see no reason why it could not continue under a different conference arrangement if they chose to do so. Even if the schools were able to work out a deal to meet for a nonconference football game each season, it would be nearly impossible to guarantee that other sports such as mens and womens basketball and baseball would be able to meet their arch rivals. Burress TD grab helps lead Jets past Bengals Associated PressEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. With one terrific touchdown catch and a few bows to the crowd, Plaxico Burress NFL comeback was complete. The wide receiver caught three passes for 66 yards, including an over-the-shoulder 26-yarder for a touchdown, in his first game in nearly three years to help the New York Jets beat the Cincinnati Bengals 27-7 in a preseason game Sunday night. Burress, signed last month after serving 20 months in prison on a gun charge, made his debut with the Jets (1-1) a memorable one. He caught a 20-yard pass from Mark Sanchez on the Jets first offensive play and another 20-yard grab in the second quarter, but the highlight came on New Yorks last offensive play of the first half. Burress took off down the left sideline, drew separation from defensive back Fred Bennett and hauled in a pass from Sanchez and fell into the end zone to put New York up 17-7. The receiver got up and bowed a few times to the raindrenched crowd, which cheered wildly. The play was reviewed by officials and upheld. I felt like I was moving in slow motion a bit, Burress said. I was looking up and at the end of the play, I was right there where I was supposed to be. Burress recently turned 34 and has acknowledged that many people doubt he can return to the elite level he was playing at before he accidentally shot himself in the leg at a Manhattan nightclub in 2008. But the former Super Bowl star with the Giants has insisted all throughout training camp even while he was hobbled by a sprained left ankle that he expects to be a game-changing receiver again. After missing the preseason opener at Houston because of the ankle injury, Burress backed up his bold words against the Bengals (0-2). Venezuela wins big, Mexico needs extra innnings Associated Press Mexicali, Mexicos Bruco Ruiz, center, celebrates with his team after hitting the game-winning walk-off single, scoring Jorge Jacobo, in the seventh inning of their game against Hamamatsu City, Japan, during international pool play at the Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pa. on Sunday. Mexico won 3-2 in seven innings. Rivers sharper than Romo, Chargers beat CowboysARLINGTON, Texas Tony Romo was sharp. Philip Rivers was sharper. And the most accurate guy of all was San Diego coach Norv Turner. Rivers led San Diego to scores on two of three drives, then Turner earned his club score another touchdown with two successful challenges on a single series in the Chargers 20-7 preseason victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. Rivers went 8 of 11 for 92 yards, with a 7-yard touchdown pass to Randy McMichael. Romo was 8 of 12 for 58 yards, with a 6-yard touchdown pass to Jason Witten. Romo also threw an interception on an ill-advised pass. Turner got an interception by Billy Volek overturned, and got a touchdown for Ryan Mathews on a play officials declared him out of bounds inside the 1.

Hell be the first to tell anyone that the save really belongs to Tigers centerfielder Austin Jackson. Jackson threw out Kosuke Fukudome at the plate to complete a game-ending double play and Detroit held on to beat the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in a wild game Sunday. When the ball was hit, I just started running to cover home plate, Valverde said. I looked back, saw the throw and the tag and just yelled Thank you! Valverde had walked Fukudome to start the inning and then hit Jason Donald on an 02 pitch. This really wasnt my day my pitches were going all over the place, Valverde said. That was the hardest save of my career. Jack Hannahan bunted the runners over, before pinch-hitter Matt LaPorta lined to centerfield and Jackson threw a perfect strike to the plate to get Fukudome by a step. It wasnt hit that hard, so I was just trying to get lined up, Jackson said. I knew I had to get it there on the fly, but I didnt know if I even had a chance until I saw Alex (Avila) put on the tag. The play ended Detroits weekend sweep of the Indians in the most-attended threegame series in Comerica Parks 12-season history. That throw is going to be on our highlight reel, for sure, Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. Not just because of being a great play, but because of the situation and the crowd. Delmon Young and Victor Martinez homered in a sevenrun third inning, but starter Rick Porcello lasted just 3 2-3 innings despite the big lead. We really needed a good outing from Rick, but he didnt give us one, Leyland said. Padres 4, Marlins 3SAN DIEGO Nick Hundley tripled leading off the bottom of the ninth and scored on Will Venables bases-loaded single to give the San Diego Padres a 4-3 win on Sunday and a fourgame sweep of the Florida Marlins. The Padres swept the sevengame season series. Overall, San Diego has won eight straight against the Marlins. On the day the Padres honored all-time saves leader Trevor Hoffman by retiring his No. 51, Heath Bell blew (3-4) the save by allowing Mike Camerons solo homer with two outs in the ninth. Hundley started the winning rally in the bottom of the inning with a triple off the bottom of the center field wall against Edward Mujica (8-5). It was the fourth triple in the last six games for Hundley, the Padres catcher. The Marlins then intentionally walked Logan Forsythe and Alberto Gonzalez before Mike Dunn relieved Mujica. The Marlins deployed a five-man infield, with center fielder Cameron playing just to the right of second base. It didnt help, though, as Venable lofted a single over the head of right fielder Mike Stanton. San Diego, which moved past Los Angeles into fourth in the NL West, has won six of eight. The Marlins, last in the NL East, have dropped 15 of 17. The Marlins were swept in a four-game series for the fourth time this season, a club record. Trying for a four-out save, Bell retired the first two batters in the ninth before Cameron, a former Padres player, homered into the balcony on the third level of the Western Metal Supply Co. brick warehouse in the left-field corner. It was his fourth. Cory Luebke struck out eight in six innings for the Padres. The Padres handed Luebke a 3-0 lead in the first. Venable homered to right on a 2-0 pitch from Anibal Sanchez. White Sox 10, Rangers 0 CHICAGO To White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, Brent Lillibridges power is a bonus. Gavin Floyd pitched shutout ball into the eighth inning, Lillibridge and Alex Rios hit two-run homers and Chicago romped past the Texas Rangers 10-0 Sunday. After Juan Pierre reached on an infield single in the third, Lillibridge followed with his shot to left field. It was Lillibridges 11th home run, matching slumping slugger Adam Dunns output in 197 fewer at-bats. Dunn has been sitting against left-handers in favor of Lillibridge. I think this kid is a very strong kid. I never thought hed hit 11 because I didnt think hed have that much opportunity to play, Guillen said. Im more impressed the way he helps us every time we need him. Right field, infield, and first base now, he said. Chicago took two of three from the AL-West leading Rangers and finished a nine-game homestand at 54. The White Sox had their first winning homestand since June 3-12. Floyd (11-10) coasted with a big lead. He allowed just three hits, struck out six and walked one. He left after giving up a leadoff hit in the eighth. The Rangers have dropped three of four after winning the first six games on their 10game road trip. We had a good road trip. Didnt end the way we wanted it to end, but we had a good road trip. Thats a pretty good team over there, too. Their record may not show it, but theres days they can go out there and play baseball as well as anybody, and today they played better than we did, Rangers manager Ron Washington said. Derek Holland (11-5) lost for the first time in five decisions since the All-Star break. The left-hander gave up five runs and eight hits in 3 1-3 innings. Angels 7, Orioles 1 ANAHEIM, Calif. Itd been a long time since Jerome Williams started a game in the major leagues, even longer since hed won one. Williams pitched seven stellar innings to get his first big league victory in almost six years, Peter Bourjos homered for the third straight game and Howie Kendrick also connected, leading the Los Angeles Angels over the Baltimore Orioles 7-1 Sunday for a threegame sweep. I feel like crying, Williams said while his 2-year-old son, Ty, sat perched in a folding chair next to him with the game ball in his hands. Its been a long road. Im just speechless. There was so much emotion out there. Being away from the game for a long time, I dedicated this to my mother and my family. Williams, a first-round draft pick by San Francisco in 1999, hadnt started a game in the majors since May 15, 2007. Rays 8, Mariners 7 ST. PETERSBURG There was no doubt about where Johnny Damons last drive landed. Damon lost a grand slam to a video review in the seventh inning, then hit a game-ending home run in the ninth that lifted the Rays over the Seattle Mariners 8-7 Sunday. It feels good, Damon said. It was a great team effort, again. Damon connected for a leadoff shot in the ninth on the first pitch from Dan Cortes (0-2), sending his 11th homer of the season into the right-field seats. The first pitch I was going to look to drive something, Damon said. But after that I was going to think about bunting, maybe, and getting on base and set the table. Fortunately I hit it far enough. The Rays trailed 5-4 in the seventh when Damon launched a deep fly to rightcenter field. It was first ruled a home run, but the umpires changed the call to a three-run double after 2-minute, 45-second video review. TV relays showed the reversal was correct and that the ball hit off the top of the wall. They were right on with that call, Rays manager Joe Maddon said. Actually, we got the ball back and it had yellow paint on it. Damon also came up with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the eighth, but the inning ended when catcher Josh Bard chased down a pitch that went to the backstop and threw the ball to Cortes, who tagged out Matt Joyce attempting to score from third. After blowing an early fourrun lead, Seattle tied it at 7 during the eighth when Wily Mo Pena hit a long two-run homer to center off James Shields. We were in position to win two out of the three games here and ended up losing both late, Seattle manager Eric Wedge said. We just have to keep plugging. Yankees 3, Twins 0MINNEAPOLIS Even with Alex Rodriguez back in the lineup for the first time in more than six weeks, the New York Yankees still found themselves needing an offensive spark in the later innings against Minnesota. Manager Joe Girardi wasnt surprised in the least that Curtis Granderson was the one to provide it. Granderson flew around the bases for an inside-the-park home run to help the New York Yankees to a 3-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday, A-Rods first game back since July 7. Nothing he does really surprises me anymore, Girardi said. You just kind of expect him to do something great every day. Rodriguez went 0 for 5 in the cleanup spot, but Mark Teixeira followed Grandersons seventhinning speed show with a more conventional homer and Ivan Nova (13-4) pitched seven shutout innings as the Yankees took three of four from the Twins. Nova allowed five hits and struck out five to rebound from a poor start in Kansas City and Mariano Rivera picked up his 33rd save in 38 tries. Joe Mauer had three hits for the Twins, who lost starter Nick Blackburn in the second inning because of a strained right forearm. Phil Dumatrait (1-2) got the loss in two innings of relief. In a breakout season in the Bronx, Granderson has launched 34 balls into the seats to help the Yankees weather Rodriguezs long absence. The powerful Yankees offense left the bases loaded twice in the first five innings and seemed to be slogging through the final game of a seven-day road trip when Granderson stepped to the plate against Jose Mijares in the seventh. His drive hit high off the outof-town scoreboard in right-center field and got away from both center fielder Ben Revere and right fielder Jason Kubel. Braves 1, DBacks 0 ATLANTA Two rookies came through in key situations to help Atlantas Tim Hudson beat Arizonas Josh Collmenter. Backed by a key defensive play by first baseman Freddie Freeman and two ninth-inning strikeouts by closer Craig Kimbrel with a runner on third, Hudson and the Braves beat Collmenter and the Diamondbacks 1-0 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep. Hudson combined with Jonny Venters and Kimbrel on a five-hit shutout. Alex Gonzalez homered for the games only run. Hudson (13-7) allowed only three hits with three walks and seven strikeouts in seven innings. He was outstanding, said Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez. Wow. What a performance. He got out of a couple of jams and gave us the opportunity to win. Giants 6, Astros 4, (11)HOUSTON The San Francisco Giants had several good chances to beat the Houston Astros. It took them until the 11th inning to find one that worked. Pablo Sandoval hit a tiebreaking two-run homer with two out in the 11th inning to lead the Giants to a 6-4 victory Sunday. The score had been tied 4-4 since the fourth inning and the Giants missed a few opportunities to take the lead until Sandovals 15th homer off Mark Melancon (6-4). Its been tough for the Giants lately. Theyve lost 17 of their last 23 games. The Astros made two outstanding defensive plays to keep the score tied. Its frustrating, especially when youve been in a streak like weve been in and lost two straight here, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. Blue Jays 1, Athletics 0 OAKLAND, Calif. So confident in his sinkerball starter, Toronto manager John Farrell left Luis Perez in the game to get out of his own bases-loaded jam with the game on the line. Perez calmly took care of it composed, as if hed done this many times before. Perez pitched six brilliant innings in his first big league start and combined with Casey Janssen on a one-hitter, and Jose Bautista connected for his majors-best 36th home run to send the Blue Jays over the Oakland Athletics 1-0 on Sunday. I felt great. I wasnt feeling tired, Perez said through his translator, Blue Jays coach Luis Rivera. I was happy he had the confidence in me to pitch and finish the inning with the bases loaded. Bautista broke up a scoreless game with a deep drive into the left-field bleachers on the 10th pitch he saw from Guillermo Moscoso. Reds 5, Pirates 4 PITTSBURGH The Cincinnati Reds have found a way to do something few other teams have done this season: Solve Pittsburgh Pirates closer Joel Hanrahan. Ramon Hernandez hit an RBIsingle to tie the game with one out in the top of the ninth and Dave Sappelt scored on Brandon Phillips fielders choice two batters later as the Reds rallied for a 5-4 victory on Sunday. Joey Votto added a three-run homer for the Reds. Jose Arredondo (3-3) pitched two perfect innings of relief while closer Francisco Cordero survived an eventful ninth to pick up his 26th save as Cincinnati beat Hanrahan (0-3) for the second time in three days. Hes one of the best closers around, said Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker. Theres the theory about the third day in a row being tough on a pitcher but sometimes youve got to do what youve got to do. Rockies 5, Dodgers 3 DENVER After an irritating stretch of futility on Sundays, the Colorado Rockies put the pesky streak to rest. Kevin Millwood pitched seven strong innings for his first big league win in nearly a year and Seth Smith hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the seventh, leading the Rockies past the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 and snapping a string of 17 consecutive Sunday losses. It was their first win on a Sunday since beating the Chicago Cubs 9-5 on April 17 but the Rockies remain eight games below .500 with five weeks remaining in the regular season. The worst part was talking about it all the time, said Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who drove in an insurance run with an eighth inning sacrifice fly. Then you start to think about it. Obviously, were out there playing and its in the back of our heads. Brewers 6, Mets 2NEW YORK Prince Fielder had just struck out on a sneaky 84 mph fastball from R.A. Dickey after fouling off six straight knuckleballs. His reaction: a big grin. Hey, why not? The Mets could do very little to slow the Brewers burly RBI machine this weekend. Fielder got the best of Dickey in the sixth inning, driving in a run with a single, then drove in the go-ahead run on a botched potential double-play grounder in the eighth, leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-2 victory Sunday for their first series sweep in New York. It was hilarious, Fielder said. Im not a fan of his knuckleball at all. Yovani Gallardo shut down the Mets for seven innings, Casey McGehee homered off Dickey and Ryan Braun had three hits, an RBI and scored twice after stealing bases for the Brewers. Milwaukee won three straight in Queens to send the Mets six games under .500 for the first time since May 4 with a thorough display of superior baseball this weekend. Shaun Marcum stifled New York on Friday in a 6-1 win. Fielder and the Brewers rallied Saturday after blowing a late six-run lead for an 11-9 victory, and Gallardo (14-8) gave up six hits in the finale to match a career high for wins. The NL Central-leading Brewers have won eight of nine on the road to improve to 29-36 away from home and are winners in 22 of 25 overall. Should the Cardinals lose the Cubs on Sunday night, Milwaukees fans will wake Monday morning to see its club with the biggest division lead in franchise history, 9 games. Were playing like we do at home, manager Ron Roenicke said of Milwaukee, which is a major league-best 47-16 at Miller Park. Nats 5, Phillies 4, (10) WASHINGTON The Philadelphia Phillies are sick of wet weather, tired of waiting around and not terribly happy about losing. After nearly six hours of rain delays in the past four games, the Phillies lost in improbable fashion for the second time this weekend. Ian Desmond hit a tying homer with two strikes and two outs in the ninth inning, then Jonny Gomes was nicked by a pitch from Brad Lidge with the bases loaded in the 10th Sunday, giving the Washington Nationals an unlikely 5-4 win over Philadelphia. The Phillies have the best record in the majors. The Nationals, however, topped them with a six-run rally in the ninth Friday and came back to win again. It was kind of a soggy week, but you still got to go out there and get people out, Lidge said. An RBI single by Michael Martinez put the Phillies ahead 4-3 in the ninth this time. Philadelphia reliever Antonio Bastardo struck out the first two batters in the bottom half before Desmond connected on a 1-2 pitch for his fifth homer. Ryan Zimmerman, who hit a game-ending grand slam on Friday night, started the 10th with a leadoff double against Lidge (0-1). Michael Morse was walked intentionally and Jayson Werth, after striking out three times, singled to load the bases. Danny Espinosa fanned for the first out. Gomes was 0 for 4 before getting plunked on his left elbow by a 1-0 pitch to win it. In a 162-game schedule, youre going to give it up every now and then, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. Sean Burnett (4-5), the sixth Washington pitcher, pitched a scoreless 10th. The win broke a streak of eight straight winning road series by Philadelphia. Red Sox 6, Royals 1 KANSAS CITY, Mo. Jon Lester loves to face the Kansas City Royals. Lester curbed the Royals on three hits for six-plus innings and Jason Varitek tripled for the first time in more than four years as the Boston Red Sox won 6-1 on Sunday. My stuff at times was good and at other times I was trying to do too much, overthrowing the ball a little bit, Lester said. Lester (13-7) has allowed two runs and six hits in 13 innings in his past two starts to beat Kansas City and Tampa Bay. He is 5-1 with a 1.30 ERA in seven career starts against the Royals, including a no-hitter on May 19, 2008. Carl Crawford and Darnell McDonald hit solo home runs for the Red Sox. McDonald replaced Jacoby Ellsbury, who missed his second straight game with a contusion in his back after being hit by a pitch Friday. The Red Sox took 3 of 4 from the Royals although other starters David Ortiz, Kevin Youkilis and J.D. Drew were also out with injuries. Its nice to know when those guys are out you have other guys to fill in and do a good job, Lester said. Thats big for us, a confidence-booster definitely. Guys that filled in those spots did a good job. Variteks two-out triple rolled to the right-center fence, allowing Jed Lowrie to score in the fifth to break a scoreless deadlock. Lowrie led off the inning with a single and moved to second on a Crawford ground out. Variteks triple was his first since June 24, 2007 at San Diego off Jake Peavy. How did it feel? Not so good, said Varitek, who was icing both knees at his clubhouse stall. Im just spacing them out. With two outs, it didnt look like its something I shouldnt have any problem getting to (third). Red Sox manager Terry Francona joked speed never takes a day off. DUE TO COMPUTER PROBLEMS WE WERE UNABLE TO INCLUDE THE BOX SCORES. THE CHRONICLE REGRETS THE INCONVENIENCE.
looks, Swank said the violations Shapiro claims to have been a part of are not severe enough to warrant the Hurricanes being treated the same way as the Mustangs. In that case you had the involvement of basically members of the board of trustees and the regents, he said. And it was repeat violations which made it a very serious case. SMU had been sanctioned multiple times in the 10 years leading up to receiving the death penalty for recruiting violations, including being placed on three years probation in 1985. But the money kept flowing because school officials, including former Texas Gov. Bill Clements, the head of SMUs board, were afraid that players already on the payroll would expose the cheating if they were cut off. Miami football was hit with NCAA sanctions in 1995 after a financial aid scandal involving at least 50 players. The Hurricanes received three-years probation, a one-season bowl ban and were stripped of 24 scholarships. But that involved an entirely different administration at Miami. At SMU, there was systematic cheating that had been going on for years. You had an infractions case and then very shortly thereafter you had a second infractions case involving many of the same people, Swank said. At Miami ... it looks like it focuses on one outlaw. Much like the Miami case, the SMU scandal came to a head at a time when NCAA investigations were rampant in college football. Some SMU supporters claimed the Mustangs were merely trying to keep up with Southwest Conference rivals Texas, Texas A&M, Houston, Texas Tech, Baylor, TCU and Arkansas. Every school had been investigated, said Bo Carter, the former longtime sports information director of the Southwest Conference and Big 12. In the s, no one had very strong compliance programs. The conferences were trying to enforce things through self-policing. The result, Carter said, was a lawless mentality. ESPN analyst Craig James, who with fellow tailback Eric Dickerson formed the famed Pony Express backfield for SMU from 1979-82 but says he wasnt aware of the rampant rulebreaking, said back then boosters had far more access to players and recruits. tions posed to players since the scandal broke was not entirely coincidental. Not only are they among the most expressive Hurricanes, but neither is among the current players implicated in the report. Life is easy regardless, James said. We just know we dont pay attention to outside things. We just focus on us, and thats about it. Horn and James were the only two speakers before Miamis practice Friday morning. Coach Al Golden opted to take a day off from briefing reporters, clearly weary of discussing the scandal. Golden was not implicated in the story, since all the events Shapiro detailed to Yahoo Sports allegedly took place between 2002 and 2010. Golden was hired in December, months after Shapiro was placed into custody for masterminding a $930 million Ponzi scheme. Larry Coker, now the coach at Texas-San Antonio, was coaching the Hurricanes when Shapiro first became a booster at Miami. Coker said Friday he was distraught over the situation and he was not involved in what Shapiro alleges. Its really very hurtful, Coker said. It really is. Ill be quite honest about that. The scandal broke just days after NCAA President Mark Emmert led a group of university presidents including Miamis Donna Shalala in drafting an outline for change in college sports. Shes been a terrific leader in higher education, and I have great respect for her, Emmert told The Associated Press on Friday. I can only imagine how much shes struggling with this, like I would have been if this had happened on my watch. Shalala released a statement earlier this week, as did Miami athletic director Shawn Eichorst, but neither has fielded questions on the ongoing investigations. In an interview that was posted online Friday by Miamis student newspaper, The Miami Hurricane, Shalala said she plans to remain at the school for a long time. Shapiro is serving a 20year prison sentence. He has also been ordered to pay more than $82 million to bilked investors. He was in the midst of being transported by federal officials from Atlanta to a still-undisclosed final destination possibly South Florida on Friday, according to his attorney, Maria Elena Perez. Neither Horn nor James would say if they spoke to any of the current players who were implicated by Shapiro about the scandal. Shapiro claims he threw lavish parties at his home and on his yacht, provided cash to recruits and paid for 39 players to have sex with prostitutes. Among those named by Shapiro include NFL stars Jon Beason, Frank Gore, Devin Hester, Andre Johnson, Kenny Phillips, Antrel Rolle, Jon Vilma and Vince Wilfork. Most of the NFL players named in the story have either declined comment or denied the claims made by Shapiro. I am concerned, Rolle said this week. I am concerned because this is bringing unnecessary drama to the program that doesnt need to be. I am a Miami guy at heart and I always will be a Miami guy at heart. I just want these players to have the same fortunate career as I had and other people had. But right now there is a lot of drama going on and its all caused by one guy, one angry guy. The current Hurricanes listed in the story include quarterback Jacory Harris, safeties Vaughn Telemaque and Ray Ray Armstrong, receivers Travis Benjamin and Aldarius Johnson, defensive linemen Marcus Forston, Olivier Vernon, Marcus Robinson and Adewale Ojomo, tight end Dyron Dye, defensive back JoJo Nicholas and linebacker Sean Spence many of whom are expected to play key roles for the team in 2011. sive recently despite breaking his left ankle earlier this month during a test session. Hes now 12th in the standings, and with two victories, he looks likely to make the Chase as a wild card. The top 10 drivers and the two drivers ranked 11th to 20th with the most victories earn spots for the Chase. I would like to make the top 10 on our own merits, if for no other reason than to push away all the naysayers of the wild-card system, Keselowski said. Its going to be good either way. Im a big fan of the wild card. Its going to be something thats going to reward me. I think its a great way of showing a commitment to our fans to rewarding those who can win races. Denny Hamlin, Kyle Buschs teammate with Joe Gibbs Racing, would be the other wild card if the regular season ended now, but he did little to help himself Sunday with a 35th-place showing. Hamlin, who had to stop in at the garage about two thirds of the way through the race, is in 14th place with one win at Michigan back in June. Pole-sitter Greg Biffle led for 86 of the first 100 laps Sunday, but it didnt last. Kyle Busch passed him around the midway point of the planned 200-lap, 400mile race. Jeff Gordon took the lead not long after that, and Johnson appeared to be in great shape when he made a pit stop just before a caution that started on lap 169. Johnson was able to stay out on the track while other cars made pit stops under the yellow flag, and he led on the restart. But Kyle Busch was lurking back in third place in his No. 18 Toyota and eventually passed Johnson. Wish I could have hung on, Johnson said. I got away from Kyle, but as I was pulling away, I was sliding the car pretty bad. ... Eventually, he got to me. With that last restart I had a shot once again, got a good restart next to him, but couldnt make it happen. Busch has three straight top-three showings. He was second to Keselowski at Pocono and third at Watkins Glen. Busch came up short at Watkins Glen in a two-lap dash to the finish. He led the field to the green flag for those final two laps, but couldnt hold off Keselowski or winner Marcos Ambrose. This ending was much more satisfying, and Busch got the better of Johnson for now. Johnson, the five-time defending Cup champion, has only one victory in the series this year but is performing consistently enough to be second in the standings. Ryan Newman finished fifth Sunday, followed by Gordon, Kasey Kahne, Clint Bowyer, Tony Stewart and Matt Kenseth. Biffle settled for 20th. Carl Edwards ended up 36th after having to stop at the garage early on. I dont know what was wrong with it. ... It felt like it was running on seven cylinders, Edwards said. We changed a bunch of stuff and then it was fixed. It wasnt something mechanical, it was probably something with some electrical connection or a coil or something. college-centric region where school ties run deep. Simpson was the ACCs player of the year for the Demon Deacons in 2008. McNeill was an all-conference player for the Seminoles in the late 1990s. And Pettersson grew up in Greensboro, played at North Carolina State, serves on this tournaments board of directors, won it in 2008 and made the daily 70-mile commute from his home in Raleigh. Im disappointed. Im a competitor, Pettersson said. I wanted to win this one badly, but Webb outplayed us all. Pettersson turned in perhaps the most remarkable birdie of the tournament on the par-4 first hole. After sending his drive well wide of the fairway and into a flower pot, he wound up chipping in from about 55 feet. Gainey, a South Carolina native known as Tommy Two Gloves because he wears them on both hands, led or shared the lead after each of the first two rounds. After falling off the pace with two bogeys and a double bogey midway through the round, he reeled off four consecutive birdies on Nos. 12-15 to climb back in it. The focus this week wasnt solely on the leaders, but on the names moving up and down the FedEx Cup points list. The Wyndham annually marks the last chance for players to claim spots in the playoffs, and some big names came to Greensboro hoping to play their way in. Padraig Harrington, who called off a family vacation so he could try to escape the playoff bubble, finished at 6 under and jumped from No. 130 to No. 124. The top 125 qualify for The Barclays later this week in New Jersey. Ernie Els, who entered at No. 126, made it into the playoff field despite shooting a final-round 72. His 8 under finish pushed him to 118th. You dont know in these playoffs, Els said. Ive got to play good golf though. I played really good the first two days. Id like to get that back. Among those who didnt make it: Justin Leonard missed a 13-foot putt on the 18th, and that left him at No. 126. To try and wait until this week to make it through is just you know, Leonard said. I mean, come on. I had 25 other weeks to play like this. Senior Championship HARRISON, N.Y Fred Couples made a 3-foot birdie putt on the third hole of a playoff with John Cook to win the Seniors Players Championship for his first major victory on the Champions Tour. Couples finished with an even-even par 71 to match Cook (70) at 11-under on Westchester Country Clubs West Course. Peter Senior (71) was third at 10 under. Couples, the 1992 Masters champion, won for the first time this season after winning four times last year in his first season on the 50and-over tour.Czech Open CELADNA, Czech Republic Englands Oliver Fisher won the Czech Open for his first European Tour victory, closing with a 3under 69 for a two-stroke victory over Swedens Mikael Lundberg.

In his first public appearance since the announcement, Lewis accepted a lifetime achievement award from the Nevada Broadcasters Association, saying he made his reputation in show business by saving lives. I made my reputation in this business caring for what I did, caring for the people that I did it for, said Lewis, who donned a red foam clown nose at one point during his speech in front of politicians and other entertainers. Let me tell you that saving lives is a very, very special project in the life of any man who wants to do that, but I have had the joy of ... extending my life by what I feel in my heart, he said. Lewis hinted during his brief speech that he could not explain why he is no longer the national chairman of the MDA after 45 years. He will also no longer host the groups annual Labor Day weekend telethon. Lewis said he was humbled to hear several congressmen and Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval describe watching Lewis host the MDAs annual Labor Day weekend telethon every year throughout their childhoods. It was as meaningful tonight as ever, the 85year-old said of his charitable work. And I dont think I can go into the why of that. D AVIDG ERMAIN AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES The Help continues to clean up at the box office, taking over the No. 1 spot with $20.5 million in its second weekend. The DreamWorks Pictures film starring Viola Davis, Emma Stone and Octavia Spencer in a drama about Southern black maids had debuted in second-place a week earlier. The Help raised its domestic total to $71.8 million and bumped 20th Century Foxs Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which slipped to No. 2 with $16.3 million after two weekends at the top, according to studio estimates Sunday. Rise of the Planet of the Apes remains a solid hit, lifting its domestic total to $133.8 million. Much as Kathryn Stocketts novel The Help became a bestseller through readers talking it up, the film is holding strong as audiences tell friends to go see it, said Dave Hollis, head of distribution for Disney, which releases DreamWorks films. While revenues often drop 50 percent or more in the second weekend for big studio films, receipts for The Help were down only 21 percent from opening weekend. It is a rare feat to see a film not open at No. 1 and then become No. 1, Hollis said. To me, its a testament of it being a great film, as well as the viral nature of the word of mouth about it. A rush of new movies had weak openings: the Weinstein Co. family sequel Spy Kids: All the Time in the World at No. 3 with $12 million; Lionsgates action remake Conan the Barbarian at No. 4 with $10 million; the DreamWorks-Disney horror-comedy remake Fright Night at No. 5 with $8.3 million; and Focus Features literary adaptation One Day at No. 9 with $5.1 million. Overall domestic revenues slid for the first time in five weekends. Receipts totaled $124 million, down 3 percent from the same weekend last year, when The Expendables led with $17 million, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com. Other than Fright Night, the new movies were panned by critics, and audiences were apathetic about all of the newcomers. This is the reason the term dog days of August was invented, said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Other than the The Help and to some extent Rise of the Planet of the Apes, everybody else got beat up this weekend. This was one of those really slow, turnmovie-theaters-into-a-ghost-town weekends. Three of the new movies Spy Kids, Conan the Barbarian and Fright Night had the benefit of higher-priced 3-D screenings, but none were able to capitalize. Robert Rodriguezs fourth Spy Kids, featuring Jessica Alba as an agent whose step-kids get in on the espionage action, also added odor to the picture with scratch-and-sniff cards handed out to viewers so they could smell what the characters were smelling. The gimmick failed to pack in crowds, though, with the sequels revenues coming in at barely a third of the $33.4 million debut for the last Spy Kids flick in 2003. Conan the Barbarian stars Jason Momoa as the fierce warrior played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1980s original. Fright Night features Colin Farrell as a vampire going after a neighbor (Anton Yelchin) who discovers hes a bloodsucker. Based on David Nicholls best-seller, One Day casts Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess as friends in a decades-long romantic dance that plays out on the same day each year. With solid reviews, Disney executives thought Fright Night would offer a good mix of scares and laughs for fans in their late teens and early 20s. Book REVIEW Spotlight on PEOPLE E NTERTAINMENT Page B5 MONDAY, AUGUST 22, 2011 Associated Press Emma Stone, left, and Viola Davis are shown in a scene from The Help. C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Todays Birthday: More than the usual amount of opportunities will be available to you in the year ahead, making it hard at times to choose just which ones you want to partake in. Each will be significant and shouldnt be taken for granted. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Be extremely selective regarding your companions. If you arent, there could be a troublemaker in the group who will be responsible for making everybody feel uncomfortable. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If you are unduly critical of others, it is likely because youre taking what they say out of context and misinterpreting innocent comments as intentional zappers. Think positively. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) By attempting to mix business with pleasure, you could unintentionally cause someone in the group to feel uneasy. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Its fine that your competitive instincts are easily aroused, as long as you dont get emotional over winning or losing and behave badly. Be a good sport about the outcome. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) When among friends, let sleeping dogs lie. Even if you bring up an old incident that you think funny, it could evoke a bitter reaction from the person involved. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) It isnt always too smart to impose unsolicited advice on another. If the situation fails to work out well, he or she may blame you even if your counsel wasnt the problem. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Avoid any situation in which you have to depend heavily on another or another has to rely on you. If you or the other person cant do what is promised, a bitter reaction might result. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Although youre someone who usually tries to be of help to others, you could easily feel put upon if another thinks you are always there for them, regardless of the situation. Aries (March 21-April 19) Even if you could make someone over in your own image, you wouldnt like the results. Its easiest to just accept everybody for who and what they are. Taurus (April 20-May 20) If everybody in the house seems to be walking around with an angry look on his or her face, make sure it wasnt put there by you. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Wanting everybody to respond to your edicts is untenable if you cant set the example by following orders yourself. Dont ask of others what you wont do. Cancer (June 21-July 22) When out with others, splitting the bill with them could be problematic unless you establish up front that everybody is willing to fork out. Dont assume something that might be rejected.

SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning numbers, Page B4 Vampire novel focuses on culture S UMMER M OORE Associated PressBloodlines (Razorbill), by Richelle Mead: Sydney doesnt have time to worry about pimples or a date to the prom. Instead, shes worried about the vampire princess shes sworn to protect to avoid a civil war that would likely cost human lives. Richelle Meads young adult Bloodlines is set in the same world of the Moroi, Strigoi and dhampirs (human-vampire hybrids) as her Vampire Academy Series, which she completed in December. Its a spinoff narrated by Sydney, a side character in the Vampire Academy books. Sydney is an alchemist who protects humans from the volatile world of vampires. Her father is important in the world of alchemists and has trained her since she was a child. Shes one of the best, though she recently lost her fathers trust because of a rogue operation. Alchemists use magic, mostly in the form of powerful gold tattoos that are kept secret. The tattoos are made with a mix of vampire blood that gives them superhuman strength and speed. Moroi Princess Jill Dragomir is being hunted by the Strigoi, a rival vampire race. To avoid civil war, Sydney takes Jill and her bodyguards to Palm Springs, Calif., to attend high school as human teenagers. As the line between vampires and humans begins to blur, Sydney has to decide whats more important: her family and her past or her new friends. Readers of the Vampire Academy Series will have no trouble following Bloodlines. But this is more than a spinoff, and those unfamiliar with the previous series wont be left behind. Bloodlines stands out from the crowded vampire genre because its not centered on a human-vampire romance, which is considered quite repulsive. Sydney is very clear on the subject: Humans and vampires cant be together! Its disgusting and wrong. Instead, Bloodlines is about the complications of an old culture centered on old beliefs that doesnt necessarily translate to a new generation. While there are a few love stories throughout the book, the focus on Sydneys internal struggle is quite refreshing. Bloodlines proves theres more to being a teenager caught in a complicated world of secrets and lies than cute boys.

B6 M ONDAY, A UGUST 22, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT Bridge these days is a bidders game. If it is your turn to call and you have 13 cards with length somewhere, you are expected to act. To pass risks being run out of town or having difficulty finding partners. However, what these bidat-all-costs players seem to ignore are the times when their bids help the opponents. This deal is an example. How should the play go in four spades after West leads the heart nine? Easts two-heart overcall was Cappelletti, showing a heart-minor two-suiter; South bid a competitive two spades; West raised to three hearts; North nudged to three spades (suggesting a maximum with four-card support); and South plowed on to game. West leads a top-of-nothing heart nine. East wins the first trick with his heart queen (bottom of touching cards when playing third hand high), cashes the heart ace (West drops a suit-preference eight), and shifts to a diamond. West takes his ace and leads back a diamond. Declarer has to play the trump suit without loss. That will be no problem if each opponent has honor-doubleton, but if the suit is 31, an opponent has to hold a singleton honor. Who will that be? Given Easts bid, clearly he is the candidate. So South leads a spade to his king, then plays a spade to dummys 10. When that holds, he cashes the spade ace and claims. East should have passed throughout. Then four spades would have been played by North after a transfer sequence. With less information, North might not have found the winning play.

Since that day, his family has refused to communicate with us. They claim my bridesmaids were out to get them and told Jake that I talk too much about my travels. Why would they lie about such things? Weve attempted to work it out, but they refuse our calls. Weve given up and are waiting for them to contact us. We recently found out that Jakes sister had a baby girl. I am thrilled to be an aunt, but they wont let me see the baby. Last week, we received an e-mail from Jakes brother, accusing my husband of trading families. Since when does spending time with your in-laws count as trading families? My family loves my husband, and since we live in the same town, we see one another frequently. My in-laws live three hours away. We used to see them once a month. His brother said they are no longer brothers and wished him good luck on the rest of his life. We responded that were more than willing to work things out, but its impossible if no one is truthful and no one talks to us. Ive never seen adults act this way. I want our future children to know their fathers family, but I dont want them subjected to such strange, negative people. Id rather show them photographs and let them hear good stories. The last time we spoke to them was seven months ago. Are we right to wait it out? Should we try talking to them again, or just write it off as a horrible loss? Lost Newlyweds Dear Newlyweds: We dont know what soured this relationship at the wedding, but there is little hope for reconciliation if the in-laws wont speak to you. Jake should try contacting his parents and siblings individually and ask if they would be willing to join the two of you for family counseling to work this out. If they refuse, sorry to say, theres not much else you can do. Dear Annie: I am a 15-year-old boy, and my mother is very protective. For about three years, Ive craved a longer leash and have asked Mom to give me more independence. Her only reply is, The world is too dangerous for my little bird. My mother says she wants to spend more time with me, give me more hugs and spoil me. Im trying to break away, not be smothered. All Im asking is to take bike rides and walks by myself. What can I do to convince her to let go a little? Craving Independence Dear Craving: Some overprotective parents think they are shielding their children from the cruel world, but in reality, they are simply preventing them from learning how to cope with life. She can still give you plenty of hugs, but responsible self-reliance should be encouraged. Show your Mom this letter, and tell her you wrote it. We hope she can loosen the apron strings a little. And if that doesnt help, please discuss the situation with your guidance counselor when school resumes. Dear Annie: Wondering About the Brew in Massachusetts asked if nonalcoholic beer could be harmful to recovering alcoholics. I disagree with your response that it could be for some. The amount of alcohol is miniscule. My husband was finally able to quit drinking, and non-alcoholic beer has been his key to success. It makes him feel less deprived and helps to satisfy him, and he knows he must always be vigilant. Our family is grateful every day that we have our husband and father back. We had forgotten what a nice person he is. Being around a mean, nasty person for 45 years was not easy. Mr. Nice Guys Wife in California Dear Wife: We will reiterate our original response: The smell (not the taste) of non-alcoholic beer can trigger a relapse in some alcoholics. Were glad that wasnt the case for your husband, but each reaction is individual, and one needs to be careful.

$50K hockey shot FARIBAULT, Minn. An 11year-old Minnesota boy made an astounding hockey shot sending a puck into a tiny hole 89 feet away. The shot at a charity game should be worth $50,000, but theres one problem: Nate Smith was standing in for his identical twin, Nick. Nick Smith said he was outside when his ticket was drawn to make the shot Thursday at the charity game in Faribault. So, his brother stepped in. Nate Smith said he was stunned when the puck went in. Their father told organizers Nate, not Nick, made the shot. Pat Smith said honesty is the best policy. The general manager of the company that insured the raffle said processing claims takes about three weeks, and he cant make a decision on payment until hes done.Mayor firedSODAVILLE, Ore. A small city in Oregon has kicked out its mayor for not showing up to work. The Albany Democrat-Herald reported Sodaville replaced 35year-old Brady Harrington with the city councils president. The newspaper said Harrington missed council meetings in June and July, along with skipping three budget meetings. The new mayor, Nick Heineck, said Harrington was occupied as a firefighter and student, but would not commit to returning to meetings when council members reached him by phone this week. Harrington declined to resign. He was elected to his second term as mayor in November.Billy goat grief AUSSERVILLGRATEN, Austria No buts about it this billy goat was a pain in the butt. Austrian state broadcaster ORF reported a German tourist couple had their hands full for three hours with a goat that wouldnt quit attacking them. To stop the butting, Steffen Prill was forced to grab the beast by the horns and hold on. Prill said he literally dragged it down the mountain slope they were hiking on toward the Tyrollean village of Ausservillgraten, near the Italian border. He and Anja Buder, his wife, said Thursday every time Prill let go, the horned assaults continued. Police called to the scene finally soothed the animal. There were no serious injuries but ORF, citing police, said the goats owner will have to pay for Buders ripped trousers.Cats for inmates NORTH PLATTE, Neb. A Nebraska jail has adopted two cats from a local animal shelter, and the sheriff said theyre helping lower tensions. Sheriff Jerome Kramer in Lincoln County decided to have his jail adopt Nemo and Sarge from a local animal shelter after inmates began volunteering there. Jerome told North Platte television station KNOP he thought the animals would help the inmates be less destructive. He noted studies show pets can help relieve stress. Jail officials put Nemo in the work-release cell block. Sarge moved to the minimum-security area. The cats have been a hit. Kramer said inmates eagerly await their turn to take care of the animals. Inmate Guy Meyers said the cats bring out the soft part in you, just like your kids do. Toilet-papered riverLEWISTON, Idaho A river in Idaho has finally run out of toilet paper. State environment officials say crews finished removing massive rolls of unprocessed toilet paper that fell off a truck and were lodged for weeks in the upper Lochsa River. Earlier attempts to pull out the paper was called off when it began disintegrating, creating an even bigger mess. Department of Environmental official John Cardwell said teams yanked out the remnants last weekend when lower river flows made the work more manageable. The Lewiston Tribune reported crews wrapped the rolls with a reinforced mesh before they were pulled out by a tow truck. The rolls landed in the water after the truck hauling the load along U.S. 12 slid into the river. The driver was cited for inattentive driving. Cemetery snakeHERSHEY, Pa. A six-foot boa constrictor that crashed a funeral a few months ago has been nursed back to health and is ready to be adopted. Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary tells The PatriotNews of Harrisburg the snake, Cocoa, is now healthy enough for a new home. Animal welfare workers took Cocoa into custody in May after people attending a memorial service at Hershey Cemetery spotted her. Police believe Cocoas owner dumped the snake after being unable to care for her. ThePatriot-News report Thursday said police never discovered who abandoned Cocoa. Cocoa is available for adoption on the sanctuarys site.Skeleton for sale STOCKHOLM A Swedish real estate agent has an unusual piece of property up for sale: a five-bedroom house, complete with medieval tomb and skeleton in the cellar. The central Visby town house on the Baltic Sea island of Gotland was built in 1750 on the foundations of a Russian church. The kitchen lies on the presbytery, and the tomb containing the skeleton visible through a glass panel is in the cellar. The real estate agencys owner Leif Bertwig said there is no reason to be afraid as the skeleton lies in consecrated soil and rests in peace. Bertwig said Wednesday the remains likely belong to a Russian man who died some 800 years ago. The starting price for the house all included is 4.1 million kronor ($640,000). Snake bites man DUNCANSVILLE, Pa. Police said a Pennsylvania man picked up more than he bargained for at a yard sale. Duncansville police Chief James Ott told the Altoona Mirror a small snake bit Donald Forshey on the leg Wednesday as he and his girlfriend were driving home from a yard sale. Ott said the snake likely slithered into a milk crate containing items the couple had purchased. The pair bailed out of the car on Interstate 99 and called 911. A state trooper was unable to help them find the snake, which Forshey tried to pin to the floor with a crutch he uses. An ambulance was called as a precaution, but Forshey was OK. Authorities believe it was either a garter snake or a copperhead that didnt inject any venom when it struck.
