Former CMHS director drops whistleblower lawsuit

Staff Writer
Citrus Memorial Health Sys-
tem business manager who
sued in federal court accus-
ing the hospital of Medicare
fraud quietly dismissed the
lawsuit in January
Randy Stein dropped the
lawsuit just two months
after it became public, ac-
cording to court records.
Citrus Memorial officials
said they learned last week
the lawsuit was dismissed.
"It means that any allega-
tions of fraudulent behavior
are not true," CMHS chief
executive officer Ryan
Beaty said. "That's certainly

no surprise to me."
Members of the Citrus
County Hospital Board of
Trustees, who are locked
with the CMHS foundation
over control of the hospital,
learned of the lawsuit's dis-
missal in recent weeks but
didn't publicize it.
That's a contrast to De-
cember, when Stein's law-
suit became public. Trustees
responded with a full-page
ad in the Sunday Chronicle,
quoting portions of the law-
suit and emphasizing that
the hospital was being sued
for Medicare fraud.
It also included a promise
from CCHB chairman
Michael Smallridge to "co-
operate fully" with federal

and state law enforcement
agencies to guarantee trans-
parency of the foundation.
Smallridge and Bill
Grant, general counsel to
the CCHB, said they saw no
reason to announce the law-
suit's conclusion in a simi-
lar fashion.
"That's the foundation's
lawsuit," Smallridge said.
"It's their responsibility. We
had nothing to do with the
Stein served as director
of business services less
than two years after being
hired in October 2008. He
was fired for writing off his
own medical expenses, ac-
cording to CMHS personnel

In November 2010, he
filed a whistleblower law-
suit in federal court accus-
ing the hospital of billing
Medicare for "observation"
services even if those serv-
ices occurred outside a 48-
hour observation period
when patients had not been
discharged or formally ad-
mitted to the hospital.
His lawsuit claimed he
brought the allegations to
his superiors and was ig-
nored. Hospital officials,
however, hired an account-
ant to investigate the claims
and the report concluded no
wrongdoing had occurred.
The Florida Department
of Law Enforcement also in-
terviewed Stein, at Grant's

suggestion, and concluded
no state laws were broken.
Stein's federal lawsuit re-
mained sealed until Decem-
ber. He sought $7 million in
damages that would have
been split between him and
the government, according
to the lawsuit.
His attorneys filed a no-
tice of dismissal on January,
saying the government had
agreed to Stein's decision.
Grant said he was happy
the lawsuit was dropped.
"I think it's fantastic," he
said. "Who wouldn't be?
We're thrilled."

ing by the number of
hits that local stories
received on Chroni-
cleonline.com this
past week, readers
have a hunger for
places to eat and shop
and a thirst to learn
about those in trouble
with the law. Top local
stories included:
Fun at C.R. Mall
despite value fall
New ownership of the Crystal
River Mall has generated ex-
citement in the community and
a spark of optimism for mall
merchants who have struggled
through tough times.
Mall manager Brett Low and
mall merchants hosted Cus-
tomer Appreciation Day last
weekend and found a curious
public. Questions were an-
swered and suggestions were
While it didn't dampen the
occasion, it piqued the interest
of many that the mall, valued at
$12.9 million for tax purposes,
sold for a modest $3 million.
County prepares
to wield budget ax
The dreary economy has a
fierce grip on county govern-
ment's coffers. With property
values in the pits, officials are
pondering plans to whack $7
million in services from the
2012-13 fiscal budget.
"What do we mean by re-
duced services?" Assistant
County Administrator Cathy
Pearson said at a meeting of
the Citrus County Council. "I will
tell you one of them is eliminat-
ing the extension services. We
have eliminated Bicentennial
pool, We have closed Coastal
Region Library. We have the
closing of two senior centers,"
she said in identifying areas
eyed for the chopping block.
Other expense reductions
being considered include the
Old Courthouse and the
Canning Center.

ices may be considered for

you in a ditch.
Two guys, in separate inci-
dents, deemed it appropriate to
defy the law last weekend.
One fellow, a Spring Hill-
ian, was distraught and, in his
state of mind, reportedly used
his vehicle to try to ram a squad
car. Ignoring commands to
stop, he apparently attempted
to speed off but only got as far
as a nearby ditch, where he
crashed and was subsequently

when lawmen found some
weed and were told he'd been
boozing it up earlier and maybe
gobbled a bit of Xanax.
Another man, a Crystal
River-ite, was ordered to get
out of his vehicle by authorities.
While deputies were sizing up
the situation, they reportedly
noticed a pot pipe in the
When deputies unlocked the
vehicle door, the suspect re-
portedly began flailing about,
resulting in a charge of batter-
ing a law enforcement officer.
Some additional flailing after
being handcuffed prompted
deputies to zap the suspect
with a Taser.

Walmart in Homosassa;
Wal-Mart in Chronicle
Enthusiasm toward new
business exploded in Ho-
mosassa, starting on Wednes-
day. That's when the new
Wal-Mart opened its doors to
the public. People packed the
Editor's note: If it seemed
funny that the sign on the store
read "Walmart" yet the Chroni-

read "Wal-Mart," there's a rea-
son for that. It may elude logic,
but it's a reason nonetheless.
The company is Wal-Mart
Stores Inc. The store signs say
Walmart. The Associated Press
- which previously advised to
use the two different styles -
recently said the heck with it;
let's go with one or the other.
Be it through a think tank or by
flipping a coin, the fine folks at

references. Chronicle veteran

lodge a beef with the AP so
things could change yet again.

Nonprofit store to help disabled veterans find jobs

Staff Writer

Jamey Clovis, it's all about
helping disabled veterans
and veterans in need.
That's the idea behind his
opening Patriot Sporting
Goods, 760 W Hampshire
Blvd., Citrus Springs, a non-
profit retail store that sells
guns, ammunition and fish-
ing equipment.
"One hundred percent of
the profits go toward jobs
for disabled vets," Clovis
Clovis, himself a former
Marine veteran and retired
law enforcement from
Pennsylvania, said the idea
came to him as he was talk-
ing to some Vietnam veter-
ans, friends of his dad.
"They were talking about

how we're ending up with
another generation, Iraqi
and Afghanistan war vets,
who are being left behind,"
he said. "They're coming
back to no jobs for them. So,
that's what this is about -
creating jobs."
He said not only does he
hire veterans to work in the
store, but he helps find
them jobs in the community
If the store, which has
been open less than two
months, succeeds, he has
plans for an ammunition
loading, weapons construc-
tion and water bottling
"The only requirement is
for veterans to have been
honorably discharged and
able to pass a criminal back-
ground check," Clovis said.
Since opening five weeks
ago, Clovis said the store is

doing well.
"We've had $3,600 days in
here and we're not selling
online," he said.
Some of his firearms in-
clude a 1880 Stevens tip up
rifle, an 1888 Quackenbush
"bicycle gun," a custom-
built rifle crafted in the
1970s by a Vietnam veteran,
an 1885 Remmington dou-
ble-barreled shotgun and a
1930s savage model 99, some
of the guns from his own
"It's been the same tem-
plate from the beginning of
our country Veterans come
home from war with psycho-
logical and physical prob-
lems, the marriage goes bad
and it's a downward spiral
from there," he said. "Then
they end up homeless and
jobless. This is a way to stop
that from happening."

Jamey Clovis recently opened Patriot Sporting Goods, a non-
profit retail store benefiting disabled veterans.

Man faces sex charges

Staff Writer

INVERNESS Deputies arrested an
Inverness man Friday after he allegedly
performed lewd sex acts over the Inter-
net and sent child pornography to who
he thought were two juveniles.
Dale Eugene Heath Jr., 33, was
charged with six counts of transmit-
ting child pornography; one count of
using a computer to seduce, solicit or
lure a child; one count of possession
of child pornography; one count of
lewd and lascivious exhibition; and
one count of introducing contraband
into a detention facility. He was trans-
ported to the Citrus County Detention
Facility where his bond was set at
According to Heath's arrest report,
a Citrus County detective with the In-
ternet Crimes Against Children unit
was contacted during the week of
March 16 by a detective with the Osce-
ola County Sheriff's Office. The Osce-
ola County detective stated he was

detective tried to talk to Heath cha
again, and Heath replied. He
reportedly invited the detective to
view his webcam.
Heath also allegedly asked the de-
tective, who was posing as a 12-year-
old boy, how old she was and the
detective stated 12.
According to the report, Heath per-
formed sexual acts on his webcam and
asked if the boy's sister wanted to
watch. He then began to instruct who
he thought was a young boy and his sis-
ter on how to perform sex acts on each
other and sent approximately a dozen
pictures showing child pornography.
Following the conversation, the de-



tective immediately went to
Heath's house. Initially,
Heath, who was home, denied
the incident, the report stated.
However, after being shown a

cam, he reportedly admitted

ges. Officials also state Heath ac-
knowledged he sent child
pornography and had "quite a bit" of
it on his computer, since he has been
trading child pornography online for
the past two years.
Heath also stated he had talked to a
juvenile girl the night before, and he
had been chatting with other children
on the Internet for the past two years,
the arrest report stated.
After Heath was transported to the
county jail, a corrections officer found
marijuana in Heath's pants pocket.

Monument board of direc-
tors and son of the late Pete
DeRosa, who founded the
Fallen Heroes Memorial in
2003 opened Friday's
somber service by welcom-
ing both Mahr's family and
those in attendance to
honor Mahr, 26, who died
March 22,2011, when enemy
forces attacked his combat
unit in Afghanistan. Pfc.
Mahr lived in Homosassa,
but spent his teenage years
in Bushnell, graduating in
2003 from South Sumter
High School.
Gathered closely, Mahr's
family looked on as the Rev.
Dennis Jacobson of North
Oak Baptist Church in Cit-
rus Springs gave the invoca-
tion, followed by the Pledge
of Allegiance and "God
Bless America."
Surber guest speaker
for the service and mother of
Sgt Robert A. Surber, whose
name also appears on the
monument spoke openly
about Mahr and reflected on
how reading his story was
like looking in a mirror.
Mahr enjoyed the activities
young boys do growing up,
like fishing and playing foot-
ball. Then he grew into a
young man who still took
pleasure in his childhood in-
terests, but discovered new
pursuits like women, video
games and the military.
Surber also read remarks
from Mahr's stepfather,
James Albury
"Our soldiers are a special
breed. Being a soldier is
about duty, honor, selfless-
ness, bravery, heart, compas-
sion, about wanting to be a
part of something greater
than yourself," Albury wrote.
"Michael gave his all even in
the face of adversity. Even in
his final moments, he did his
duty, and he did it well."
By giving the ultimate sac-
rifice, Mahr gave "all he had
to give," Surber said.
Therefore, he can leap
tall buildings, and he is
more powerful than any lo-
comotive, she added.

ican soldiers. They are our
superheroes," she said.
As Kathy Garlock played
'"Amazing Grace" on the bag-
pipe, Mahr's immediate
family, including his wife
Stephanie and their young
son Jadon, placed flowers
next to a photo of Mahr
dressed in army fatigues
and wearing sunglasses
with a slight grin on his face.
Firmly cradling her son in
her arms, Stephanie Mahr
sobbed wistfully as she
wiped away tears while Kar-
lynn Willoughby crooned
"My Heart Will Go On" and
Jackie Stevio belted out
"Wind Beneath My Wings."
The Rev Ken Blythe of
Good Shepard Lutheran
Church in Hernando gave
the closing benediction
prayer Marine Corps League
Detachment No. 819 gave a
fitting gun salute, followed by
the playing of "Taps."

3 years later, what's become of the tea party?

AP National Writer
years ago, he was merely a
face in a very large crowd,
standing outside the Alamo
on Tax Day as Glenn Beck
spoke of drawing a line in
the sand.
A businessman, husband,
father of five and grandfa-
ther of 14, Bruce Baillio
bought a miniature "Don't
Tread on Me" flag and
watched, a little sheepishly
and mostly silently, as a
movement was born before
his eyes. Like most of Amer-
ica, he didn't know then
what the tea party was.
Today, he is part of what it
is morphing into.
Twice a month at the Jim's
Restaurant not far from his
home, Baillio unloads tea
party T-shirts and baseball
caps, sets an American flag
on a Formica table and
leads his neighborhood tea
party group one of 23 in
the San Antonio area in a
discussion. They talk about
the Obama administration's
policies regarding insur-
ance for birth control, about
how to become a delegate to
the conventions that help
determine the Texas GOP's
leaders and platform.
He does this every first
and third Tuesday of the
month, even though he
knows some are already
writing the tea party's obit-
uary In this, the first presi-
dential campaign since the
dawn of the movement, no
single contender has been
christened the "tea party
candidate." And what was
once the boisterous focus of
American politics is now the
butt of Internet insult: "Ding
Dong the Tea Party is
dead!" wrote one blogger.
"Are we dead?" Baillio
asked several of his mem-
bers on a recent Tuesday
About 15 had gathered on
this night, including retired
military men, grandmoth-
ers, a few real estate bro-
kers, a city utility worker, a
high school Spanish teacher
and a photographer.
Their responses were
steeped in the kind of confi-
dence that comes with clout,
and the San Antonio Tea
Party has gained some of

Associated Press
Pat Denzer holds a copy of the U.S. Constitution to his chest March 23 as he attends a Re-
ligious Freedom protest in downtown San Antonio. Following the tide-turning elections of
2010, when the tea party revolution sent new conservatives to governors' mansions, state-
houses and, of course, Congress, what's the group's role now? The tea party has changed,
but it's very much alive.

"We're persistent and
keep driving the issues
home," said one member.
"We communicate with
each other and ... when it
comes time to vote, we'll
definitely pull the ballot
lever," replied another.
And there was this, from an
ex-Air Force man wearing a
"Vote. Declare Yourself"
shirt: "We're becoming active
in things that we
didn't even think about be-
fore this all began ... and we
are finding that our differ-
ence is very, very tall. All
they're doing when they call
us dead is creating something
called silent resentment"
Dead the tea party is not.
Changed? Perhaps. But still
very much alive, in the back
room of a Jim's Restaurant
in San Antonio and many
other places across the land.
It screamed onto the
scene with a memorable
rant by a reporter on the
floor of the Chicago Mercan-
tile Exchange. Then came
the giant Tax Day rallies.
The jeers at town hall meet-
ings about a still fledging na-
tional health care proposal.
Protests in Washington, D.C.,
with Beck, and bus tours fea-
turing Sarah Palin.
It all culminated with the
tide-turning elections of

2010, when the tea party
revolution sent new conser-
vatives to governors' man-
sions, statehouses and, of
course, Congress helping
to fuel the largest turnover
in the U.S. House in more
than 70 years.
But where has the tea
party been since? It's a com-
mon question, especially as
many saw the GOP presi-
dential campaign unfolding
without any meaningful tea
party influence. Sure, there
was a Tea Party Express
rally last fall in New Hamp-
shire, featuring most of the
Republican presidential
hopefuls. And, later, that
same group co-sponsored a
debate with CNN.
Still, so-called "umbrella"
organizations such as the
Tea Party Express, the Tea
Party Patriots, Freedom-
Works and others haven't, to
date, put their names be-
hind any one candidate. And
only in recent weeks have
tea party darlings such as
U.S. senators Marco Rubio
of Florida and Mike Lee of
Utah finally weighed in -
endorsing likely nominee
Mitt Romney, the former
Massachusetts governor
whom some see as un-tea-
party-like as one could be, in
part because of his state's
own health care reform law.

Some local tea party
groups (in Massachusetts,
for example) have divided
over divergent priorities -
whether to make conserva-
tive economic principles or
conservative social issues
paramount. Others, such as
the Tennessee Tea Party,
have disbanded altogether.
In researching her recent
book, "The Tea Party and
the Remaking of Republican
Conservatism," Harvard
professor Theda Skocpol
found that about 1,000 local
tea party groups formed in
2009-2010. Today, she esti-
mates there are about 600. A
declining number, yes, but
still what Skocpol, an expert
on civic engagement, calls "a
very good survival rate."
"They're not dressing up
and going to demonstrations
in the street. They're meet-
ing. They're poring over the
legislative records of these

Republicans that they've
elected. They're contacting
their representatives, and
they're keeping the pres-
sure on. They're following
the debates, and they're
going and they're voting.
"They're determined,"
she says, "and they haven't
gone away."
To weigh the continuing
success or influence of the
tea party by inside-the-
Beltway measures en-
dorsements, numbers of
chapters and "constituents,"
dollars or even wins or
losses at the polls is to
miss the point and ignore
the power of the movement
today, says Skocpol. That
stems from a fundamental
misunderstanding of what
the tea party was and is.
It was never an "it," a
party with a capital "P" in
the sense of a third political
party, though at one point
some tea party insiders may
have toyed with the idea
and outsiders treated it al-
most as such. (Consider
CNN's decision to televise
the tea party response to
President Obama's 2011
State of the Union address.)
Rather, it is an ideology
and a style of politics one
that "has been in the busi-
ness of pulling the Republi-
can Party away from the
possibility of compromising
with Democrats and further
toward the hard right," says
Skocpol. '"And they've been
very successful. ... They've
taken over the Republican
Party, lock, stock and barrel."
Elizabeth Price Foley, a
constitutional law professor
and author of "The Tea
Party: Three Principles,"
calls the tea party "the new
Republican base." "That
causes a lot of people who
want to dismiss the tea party
to characterize them as pup-
pets of some great wealthy
conservative puppet mas-

ters," she says. "If anything,
the tea party is the one who
is moving the mountain. The
mountain being the Repub-
lican Party"
This was on full display
during last summer's con-
gressional debt debate,
when House tea partyers
forced Republican Speaker
John Boehner to postpone a
vote on legislation to raise
the debt ceiling and hastily
revise it to add a balanced-
budget provision, pushing
the government to the brink
of default. It was just one ex-
ample of the strength ex-
erted by newly elected tea
party Republicans advocat-
ing a tough no-compromise
mantra. Earlier, they drove
House Republican leader-
ship to rewrite a budget bill
to find more spending cuts.
Today, tea party activists
are still hard at work pro-
moting a conservative ideol-
ogy at all levels of
government, in part by tar-
geting longtime GOP incum-
bents deemed not
conservative enough. Take
this year's congressional
races. Though no one ex-
pects the type of gains seen
in 2010, national tea party-
related groups are backing
candidates in vital races as
part of an effort to not only
keep GOP control of the
House but possibly gain con-
trol of the Senate and move
Congress more to the right
Already, in what some
have dubbed the first upset
of 2012, an incumbent con-
gresswoman in Ohio has
fallen to a tea party-backed
challenger in that state's pri-
mary. Still to come are the
two high-profile primaries
featuring tea party targets
Orrin Hatch of Utah and
Richard Lugar of Indiana,
the two most senior Repub-
lican members of the Senate.

A12 SUNDAY, APRIL 15, 2012

Continued from Page A8

FreedomWorks, a Wash-
ington, D.C.-based group that
provides both money and
training for tea party ac-
tivists and candidates, has
spent some $650,000 oppos-
ing Hatch, whom the group
calls "the consummate
Washington insider" with a
record that "is decidedly op-
posed to the goals of the tea
party" in part because he
voted for the Wall Street
bailout in 2008.
The 78-year-old Hatch,
first elected in 1976, faces
several challengers at an
April 21 GOP state conven-
tion. It was at that meeting
two years ago that tea party-
ers notched their first con-
gressional victory, defeating
three-term Republican Sen.
Bob Bennett.
Lugar, who like Hatch is
seeking a seventh term, may
face a bigger threat in his
May 8 primary State Treas-
urer Richard Mourdock has
been endorsed by a coali-
tion of Indiana tea party
groups called Hoosiers for a
Conservative Senate but
also by national organiza-
tions including Freedom-
Works, the anti-tax Club for
Growth and the Tea Party
Express, some of which
have spent several hundred
thousands of dollars sup-
porting Lugar's opponent.
There is evidence of the
tea party's influence, too, in
the campaign of Romney,
even if many harbor deep
suspicions that he is a Mas-
sachusetts moderate. He has
begun promoting some tea
party-friendly positions, in-
cluding a plan to partially
privatize Medicare. And his
stump speeches are sprin-
kled with lines that play to
the tea party crowd, whether
he's denouncing "career
politicians" or imparting the
virtues of the Constitution
and the founding fathers or
accusing President Barack
Obama of wanting to "funda-
mentally transform" Amer-
ica and turn it into a
"European-style entitlement
society" with "burdensome
regulations" that expand the
role of government.
"To be successful in poli-
tics you have to be connected
to the zeitgeist of the times.
The tenor of the times today
... is opposition to the in-
creasing size, cost and intru-

siveness of the federal gov-
ernment," says Sal Russo, a
veteran GOP political strate-
gist who runs the Tea Party
Express political action
committee. 'All of the candi-
dates have successfully ad-
dressed the primary tea
party issue in a way that tea
party people would like. I
hear people say (the GOP
primary was) a titanic strug-
gle between the tea party
and the non-tea partyers.
That's silly"
Perhaps nowhere is the
persistent power of the tea
party more at work today
than at the local and state
level, where many grassroots
activists have decided to
shift the focus of their ef-
forts. More tea party-backed
candidates are running for
county and state Republican
leadership positions, with
the aim of having a bigger
say in the party's agenda and
It's happened in South
Carolina, Florida, Arizona,
Minnesota and Ohio, where
the head of the state GOP re-
signed this month after a
much-publicized battle be-
tween him and the governor,
as well as tea party groups
that aligned against him.
Another notable example
is New Hampshire, where
tea party organizer and for-
mer gubernatorial candidate
Jack Kimball was elected
GOP chairman in January
2011 by conservatives. Soon,

GOP presidential hopefuls
were reaching out to Kim-
ball in that first-in-the-
nation primary state. But
Kimball stepped down eight
months later amid infighting
with the state's top Republi-
can elected leaders, who
questioned his ability to
manage the organization
and raise funds.
There have been other
signs of backlash against the
tea party, both within the
GOP establishment and
among the public at large. In
New Hampshire, where Re-
publicans in 2010 won su-
permajorities in both the
state House and Senate, a re-
cent poll of GOP primary
voters found most saying
they no longer support the
tea party movement. That
echoes a November Pew Re-
search Center poll, which
found waning support na-
tionwide for the tea party but
also in those congressional
districts now represented by
members of the House Tea
Party Caucus.
In Indiana, a video
popped up on YouTube urg-
ing voters to reject tea party
candidates to the Madison
County Republican Party in
that state's upcoming May
primary, telling viewers: "If
you care about the real Re-
publican Party, you must act
now before it's too late,"
The Herald Bulletin news-
paper reported.
In Florida, the state GOP

chair removed the local
head of the Volusia County
Republican Executive Com-
mittee after a battle be-
tween him and more
conservative Republicans. A
tea party activist is now in
charge, and that prompted
one GOP political consultant
to write a scathing online
column urging Republicans
to "resist the temptations
and blind allegiance to ...
any group that would be so
arrogant as to want to
change the party by disrupt-
ing it and destroying it."
Still, tea party observers
such as Foley and Skocpol
say the movement may be
here to stay The tea party,
says Foley, is "in the fabric of
every community You may
not see it, because they're
not holding signs. But they're
And, she adds, "They're in
it for the long haul."
To better grasp the evolu-
tion of the movement, sim-

ply follow the journeys of its
In March 2010, Hildy
Angius, a retired public rela-
tions specialist, drove from
her condo in Bullhead City,
Ariz., to the huge tea party
rally in Searchlight, Nev -
what some called the Wood-
stock of conservatism. Then,
she was president of her
local Republican women's
club. Now, she serves as vice
chair of the Mohave County
Republican Party and is run-
ning for county supervisor
"I think we realized that
just getting together ... and
yelling and screaming
wasn't going to do anything,"
says the 52-year-old Angius.
"The best thing is to get in-
volved at the local level in
the party Move the local
party to the right... and then
the local party will move the
state and then the state
moves the national.
"The tea party was an idea
that people like me, who
came from nowhere, could
get involved ... and you can
really make a difference."
In San Antonio, 60-year-
old Bruce Baillio now feels
the same.
After the Tax Day rally of
2009, he went home, set his
tea party flag aside and went
on with life, keeping up with
politics but not getting in-
volved. Then he read about a
Houston tea party group's
call for poll watchers to pre-
vent what they considered
possible election fraud. He
was trained as an election
judge and, urged on by a fel-
low church member who
now serves as head of the
San Antonio Tea Party,
began attending his neigh-
borhood tea party meetings.
Soon enough, he was leading
the group.
Today, he and other tea
party members have the
clout to meet privately with
elected officials and press
them to hold the line on city
projects, including a pro-
posal to spend millions to


build new housing in the
downtown core.
"We are showing up at city
council meetings on a regu-
lar basis, showing up at
county commission meetings
on a regular basis. We have
organized neighborhood
groups to attend town hall
meetings," says San Antonio
Tea Party president George
Rodriguez. "It is at those
meetings that we bring up
the issues of: How are you
using our money?"
Political candidates are
also coming to them, seeking
votes and volunteers.
That Tuesday night in San
Antonio, three candidates
showed up to court Baillio's
members, including Matt
Beebe, a conservative new-
comer taking on the speaker
of the Texas House in the
state's May 29 primary.
Beebe credited tea party
groups like Baillio's for
paving the way for more
conservative candidates to
seek office.
"The tea party ... has pro-
vided a backdrop where the
opportunity to beat an en-
trenched incumbent ex-
ists," he says. "They're
putting their money where
their mouth is. They're put-
ting their time and effort
where their mouth is, and
so I feel like they are ab-
solutely significant."
This, Baillio says, is "the
new normal" his group of
citizen activists who may
not dress up in revolution-
ary garb, make signs and
converge on large rallies,
but instead work behind the
scenes to influence their
democracy in myriad ways.
"We have definitely
changed the dialogue. Peo-
ple now have to consider
the tea party," he says. 'Are
we a paper tiger? I think
that's our biggest fear. And
the answer to that question
is in our own hands. We get
to decide. It's about who
else can we educate. Who
else can we wake up?"

A shift to more aggressive

tactics against heroin

Associated Press
ST LOUIS With heroin becoming
cheaper than a six-pack and as easy to ob-
tain as pot, police and prosecutors are turn-
ing to more aggressive tactics against the
drug, dusting off little-used laws to seek
murder charges against suspected dealers
and provide for longer prison sentences.
Angry suburban parents are joining the
effort, too. They've organized anti-drug ral-
lies and founded organizations to spread
the word about heroin in affluent areas
where it is usually considered a distant, un-
likely threat.
The more assertive approach is not en-
tirely new to the drug war, but it's being
adopted more widely and in more areas
that have rarely been so bold comfort-
able residential communities.
"We are going to treat every overdose
scene like a crime scene. We are going to
treat every overdose as a potential homi-
cide," said Stephen Wigginton, U.S. attorney
for southern Illinois. "Heroin is the bullet."
Once associated with rock stars and
inner-city junkies, heroin has become far
more dangerous and accessible in recent
years. Mexican cartels a half-decade ago
created a form of the drug so pure it can be
snorted or swallowed instead of injected,
making heroin more appealing to teenagers
and suburbanites who don't want the
stigma of shooting up.
The extreme purity often 50 percent or
higher-- means today's heroin is far dead-
lier than in the past. As a result, heroin
deaths have spiked over the past few years
in some parts of the country
Few places have been as devastated as
the St. Louis area, where the city and
county reported 116 heroin deaths in 2010
and 194 last year. The increase was even
more pronounced across the Mississippi
River in Illinois' Madison County, where
the death toll has climbed from just five in
2008 to 26 last year.
Part of the problem is availability.
"Heroin is easier to get than marijuana
now," said Jim Shroba, the Drug Enforce-
mentAdministration agent in charge of the
St. Louis office.
It's also cheap: A "button" of heroin -
enough for one person to get high can
cost as little as $6.
In the St Louis suburb of Troy, Ill., young
Shannon Gaddis finished off a snow day
last year by snorting heroin. The overdose
killed her.
The death of the animal-loving high school
cheerleader "put this issue sharply into
focus," said Madison County State's Attorney
Tom Gibbons. "It showed us this was really
happening in a way that would have the most
serious and unfortunate consequences."

Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek holds
up a package of heroin recovered by law en-
forcement officers during a news conference
Thursday in Minneapolis. Heroin-related
deaths nearly tripled in three Minnesota
counties in 2011, prompting sheriffs in the
Twin Cities area on Thursday to issue a pub-
lic plea for help in combating growing use of
the drug in the area.
About a year ago, St. Louis County police
began warning of the drug's risks at heroin
town hall forums, which were held in small
meeting rooms. The response was so great
that the gatherings now fill high school au-
ditoriums. Similar meetings are being con-
ducted throughout the region.
Authorities are also redoubling their ef-
forts to get users into rehab. St. Louis
County officers now provide a small card to
everyone arrested for heroin with a 24-hour
phone help number on one side and police
contacts on the other in case they want
to turn in their dealer.
But the most intense efforts are focused
on heroin dealers such as Tavis Doyle of
East St. Louis, who was sentenced to life in
prison in August for providing the heroin
that killed a man. Prosecutors say Doyle re-
fused to let anyone call 911 after the victim
collapsed and instead tried to revive him by
putting frozen meat in his pants.
In the five years before Gibbons became
state's attorney, Madison County filed just
one case of drug-induced homicide. In the
15 months since, Gibbons has filed six.
Among those charged was 20-year-old
Taylor Kennedy, who is accused of supply-
ing the heroin that killed Gaddis. He's
awaiting trial.

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate Khairat el-Shater talks to reporters during a press conference

ex-spy chief, were disqualified from the race. Farouk Sultan, the head of the Supreme Presidential Election Com-

Egypt keeps three front-runners from presidential race

Associated Press

CAIRO Egypt's election com-
mission disqualified 10 presiden-
tial hopefuls, including Hosni
Mubarak's former spy chief and
fundamentalist Islamists, from
running Saturday in a surprise de-
cision that left a field of moderates
in the race for the country's first
post-revolutionary leader.
The elimination of the three most
powerful and controversial candi-
dates could go in two directions
with just weeks to go before the
vote, observers said. It could plunge

the Arab world's most populous na-
tion into a new political crisis, or
just the opposite, defuse it
Farouk Sultan, the head of the
Supreme Presidential Election
Commission that was appointed by
Egypt's military rulers to oversee
the vote, said that those barred
from the contest included
Mubarak-era strongman Omar
Suleiman, Muslim Brotherhood
chief strategist Khairat el-Shater
and hard-line Islamist Hazem Abu
Ismail. He did not give reasons.
Disqualified candidates have 48
hours to appeal the decision, ac-

cording to election rules. The final
list of candidates will be an-
nounced April 26.
The announcement came as a
shock to many Egyptians as three
of the 10 excluded were consid-
ered among the front-runners in a
highly polarized campaign that
has left the nation divided behind
two strong camps: Islamists and
former regime insiders who are al-
legedly supported by the ruling
Thirteen others had their candi-
dacy approved, including former

curity Council voted unani-
mously Saturday to dispatch
a first team of monitors to
Syria to shore up a brittle
cease-fire as escalating
fighting between regime
and rebel forces threatened
the truce at the heart of spe-
cial envoy Kofi Annan's
peace plan.
Syrian troops shelled res-
idential neighborhoods and
rebel gunmen fired rocket-
propelled grenades in the
central city of Homs in the
first use of heavy weapons
since the cease-fire offi-
cially took effect Thursday
Loud booms echoed across
the city as smoke rose above
badly damaged apartment
blocs. In other parts of
Syria, both sides described
several deadly shootings
and ambushes, and re-
ported at least 14 people
were killed.

Council its first united front

tween the regime and the
opposition on Syria's politi-
cal future.
The plan is widely seen as
the only remaining chance
for diplomacy, mainly be-
cause it has the backing of
Syria allies Russia and
China which shielded Assad
from Security Council con-
demnation in the past.
Annan said in Geneva
that he was "very relieved
and happy" about the coun-
cil vote.
France's U.N. ambassa-
dor, Gerard Araud, said he
hoped the vote "will open
the way to a cessation of
brutal violence, and we
hope that we'll be able to
say to the Syrian people that
the time of indiscriminate
violence is finally behind
it." The latest attacks in
Homs "lead to some doubts
about the reality of the com-
mitment of the Syrian
regime," he added.
Western powers and oppo-
sition leaders remain skepti-
cal about Assad's willingness
to ease his tight grip on the
country, ruled by his family
for four decades. The regime
appears to have complied
with parts of the Annan plan,
while flouting others.
With the exception of
Homs, the military has
halted random shelling and
mortar attacks on rebel-
held residential areas,
which were the daily norm
in recent weeks. However, it
has maintained an intimi-
dating presence of troops,
tanks and plainclothes secu-
rity agents in the streets and

Dear Annie: I have
been married to
"Ellen" for seven
years, and we recently
moved back to her home-
town. Apparently, she left
behind an old boyfriend.
They were teenagers "in
love." Ellen was repeatedly
unfaithful, and the
boyfriend tried to
break things off.
But Ellen always
manipulated him
into saying he
would love her
forever. At some
point, he gave
her a promise
She continued
cheating on him
and never took
responsibility, in-
stead blaming ANN
her parents or MAIL
drugs. I knew
about the drugs,
but the game-playing was
only recently revealed to me
by Ellen's friends and rela-
tives. Had I been aware of
that side of her personality, I
probably wouldn't have
married her But three kids
later, I love her dearly
Ellen has some insecurity
issues, and I am constantly
reminding her how much
she means to me. But what
really bothers me is that she
sought out the ex-boyfriend
and has started correspon-
ding with him. Her emails
are full of lies. The ex tried
to extricate himself when
his wife became concerned,
but Ellen turned into her
old vindictive, manipulative
When I confronted her,
she insisted that she loves
me, and that she ended the
emails, but now there are
strange numbers on our cell
phones and her computer.
I feel betrayed. Do I give

up on my marriage? Do I
confront the other guy and
let him know how deceitful
Ellen has been?
She has emotional prob-
lems, and I fear this will
send her back into the drug
world. I am afraid to leave
my kids home with her, so I
have asked friends and fam-
ily to stop by
Ellen refuses
counseling, so
now I'm seeing a
^4 therapist behind
her back.
People online
can be whoever
they want you to
think they are,
but you really
have no clue. -
Tired of Losing to

BOX Dear Tired:
Ellen sounds
emotionally un-
stable, not to mention un-
trustworthy Leave the
boyfriend out of it, and con-
centrate on your wife. She's
a mess and needs help.
Please don't wait until
your children suffer. Insist
that Ellen see a therapist,
not only to save your mar-
riage, but to save herself.

Wild, starving animals
were brought from Africa
and caged in the bowels of
the Colosseum, awaiting
their second chance at life. It
is this underground maze
that is most fascinating: Hun-
dreds of animals were
housed here to eventually be

brought by one of 80 elevators
to the arena floor above. Trap
doors in the floor would
allow the animals to "escape"
randomly, as the gladiator
had no prior knowledge of
what animal or from which
trap door the beast would ap-
pear. Surprise was the ele-
ment of the day.
The arena was often em-
bellished with scenes and
trappings of Africa, a temple,
or simply left bare as if a
desert. Theater stages of

Rock 'n' rolling stoned

Some say the Rolling
Stones are the best
rock band in the
world. That's a little extrav-
agant; it's like calling Earth
the best planet in the uni-
verse. How do you know un-
less you've seen them all?
That said, the Stones are
certainly one of the most in-
teresting bands in the
world, and guitarist Keith
Richards may be
the band's most
interesting mem-
Keef, as fans
call him, has,
against all odds, i
reached age 68, ;
and in 2010 he
released his au-
"Life." When you J
read about the
copious drugs he MUL
and his band-
mates took for many years
(Richards swears he's been
off junk for 30 years), it
makes you wonder why
you're paying extra for or-
ganic free-range chicken,
soy milk and other things
that are supposed to be so
good for you.
The parts of "Life" that
are not about taking drugs,
scoring drugs or being
busted for drugs are about
his many trips to rehab to
get off drugs. The thing is, it
wasn't just the boys in the
band smoking, snorting and
shooting dope. The roadies,
the groupies, the record
execs, the studio musicians,
the agents and their famous
friends were all doing it, too.
Richards would get out of
rehab, and the next day a
"friend" would lay some
smack on him.
By the way, he still drinks.
He writes that while record-
ing in Canada not long ago
(in Rolling Stone years, any-
way), the band and its en-
tourage cleaned the Jim


Beam out of every liquor
store within 50 miles by the
end of the first week. When
Keef heard about it, he put
down his elf-booted foot.
"That's it," he said. "From
now on, we're drinking
One of the oddest things
about successful musicians
is that they are workaholics.
It's hard to tell if Richards is
bragging or com-
plaining when he
says that in its
first five years,
the band didn't
take one day off.
None of the
Stones ever had a
job other than
playing in a band.
If they weren't
M playing or record-
ing, they were
LEN writing songs,
doing photo
shoots or appearing on TV
That's what it takes to stay
on top. You can never stop.
Keef can be as charming
as Capt. Jack Sparrow, the
"Pirates of the Caribbean"
character that Johnny Depp
modeled on Richards. But
not always.
Throughout the book
Richards casually refers to
women by the b-word,
sleeps with a gun under his
pillow, and seems to be
under the delusion that he
is a large, black Jamaican
rastaman. Then it starts to
get weird.
He and Mick Jagger
haven't spoken in 20 years
except to write songs when-
ever they needed to raise
some quick cash. Incidental
tidbit: It seems that most of
the time, Richards writes
the music and Jagger writes
the lyrics.
What else? They all hated
Brian Jones because he was
a girlfriend-beating, needy,
selfish, egotistical piece of
goose dropping. No one in

the band seemed surprised
or upset when Jones turned
up dead in his swimming
pool a month after quitting
the band in 1969.
Bassist Bill Wyman quit
because he was afraid of fly-
ing. Richards left longtime
girlfriend Anita Pallenberg
because she was doing
"more drugs than he was."
How is that even possible?
As for the music,
Richards gives a blow-by-
blow account of recording
the songs for "Exile on Main
St." That album was
recorded in the basement of
a seaside villa he'd rented
in southern France so that
he and the rest of the group
wouldn't have to pay confis-
catory British income taxes.
For months the band mem-
bers recorded in a hot,
sweaty root cellar until they
got what they wanted. Then
in one line, Richards says
something like, "Then we
took the masters to LA and
added the vocals and over-
dubbing." Wait, what? That
could have been fleshed out
a little more.
Depp and Richards read
some of the chapters of the
audiobook version, and it is
hard not to laugh when you
hear a Capt. Jack voice say,
"I don't have a drug prob-
lem; I have a police prob-
I saw the Stones in 1972,
figuring it would be the
band's last tour because all
the bandmates would be
dead of pop-star excesses in
a year or two, Keef being the
first to go. It seems he may
outlive us all.

CRYSTAL RIVER It's old, as
adages go, but its truth still res-

Sometimes, however, it's difficult
to discern where that practice
may lead.
Case in point: On Friday

the first round of the 45th
annual Presidential Tournament

RIC BUSH/For the Chronicle

evening, Bob Bleakley and his
houseguest, Rick Powers, were
practicing their putting after din-
ner in Bleakley's living room. It
was a final adjustment prior to
the start of the Presidential Tour-
nament, one of Citrus County's
largest men's golf tournaments,
hosted this weekend by Seven
Rivers Golf and Country Club.
The primary adjustment, ac-
cording to Bleakley the de-
fending Presidential champion -
was supposed to be for Powers, al-
though Bleakley did say he'd
"been struggling with my putting."
After a few strokes in the living
room, the two longtime friends
came to a solution that would
help them both.
"We traded putters," Bleakley
said. "Just like that."
Good idea, although it seems to
have aided Bleakley more than

After spring game, Miami still has work to do

Eyes on QB

for Hurricanes

Associated Press

MIAMI For the past year,
Miami quarterback Ryan Williams
has been watching, studying and
waiting. Whether that will trans-
late into actually starting for Hur-
ricanes this fall remains unknown.
Williams completed 15 of 27
passes for 169 yards on Saturday
in Miami's spring game, where the
lone touchdown came on a 5-yard

run by Mike James with 4:19 left in
the Orange's 7-6 victory over
Green. Williams set up the win-
ning score with a 44-yard pass to
Phillip Dorsett about a minute
earlier, maybe the biggest play in a
mistake-filled afternoon.
Williams sat out last season after
transferring from Memphis, and as-
sumed the role of go-to quarterback
after Stephen Morris was ruled out
for the spring after back surgery
Morris and Williams will resume
their competition in training camp
this summer, and Williams said he
didn't think a shaky offensive show-
ing in the spring game should be
considered all that disappointing

heading into 2012.
"It's more of what we do in the
summer and fall," Williams said.
"It's not how we finished this. It's
how we continue to improve head-
ing into the season."
There's clearly plenty of work
left to do. Miami had five
turnovers in the game, two inter-
ceptions from both Williams and
Gray Crow, plus a lost fumble by
receiver Rashawn Scott after a 36-
yard reception.
The work-in-progress feel was
expected. The Hurricanes were
6-6 last season, are still awaiting
sanctions from the NCAA over
the extra-benefits scandal that

remains under investigation, and
lost a slew of their best players
from a year ago including
four-year quarterback Jacory
Harris, linebacker Sean Spence,
running back Lamar Miller and
the top two receivers from 2011,
Tommy Streeter and Travis
"I know it wasn't perfect today,"
Miami coach Al Golden said. "It
certainly wasn't spectacular from
a fan standpoint or viewing stand-
point But we came out of it clean.
We came out of it healthy. I'm as
pleased about that as anything. I
don't think we'll have anything lin-
gering in terms of our team past

June. I'm pleased with those
young guys.... Since Jan. 17, I think
we've accomplished a lot."
With Morris out, Williams had
his chance to make a statement
this spring.
Williams played high school
football at nearby Miramar High,
helping it win the 2009 state cham-
pionship in Florida's biggest en-
rollment class. As a freshman at
Memphis in 2010, Williams com-
pleted 57 percent of his passes for
2,075 yards, 13 touchdowns and 10
interceptions, before deciding to
come back closer to home prima-
rily for family reasons.

Laughing way to lead

Pettersson overtakes

Knost at RBC

Heritage tourney

Associated Press

Carl Pettersson couldn't have had a
better time with Colt Knost at the
RBC Heritage. He hopes to have as
much fun when the two play again
on Sunday
Pettersson had a run of five
straight birdies on the front nine
and finished with a birdie on the
18th hole for a 66 and a one-stroke
lead over Knost heading into the
final round of the RBC Heritage on
Pettersson and Knost chatted
and laughed throughout the round,
looking more like a pair of duffers
at the local muni out for a weekend
round rather than pro golfers chas-
ing a PGA Tour title.
"Two fat guys played in three
hours, 48 minutes," Pettersson said
with a smile. "That was pretty good.
But we had a good time."
Especially Pettersson who used
his birdie streak to overtake a nerv-
ous Knost and build a three-shot
lead through 10 holes. Knost tamed
the butterflies enough to find the
game that had him in the lead here
after Thursday and Friday, tying for
the top after Pettersson's bogey on
the par-5 15th hole.
Pettersson moved in front at the
end with a stunning approach that
slid by the cup on No. 18 for a closing
birdie. The two will match up once
again in the final pairing Sunday
"I'm going to try tomorrow to
have fun," said Knost, seeking his
first win on the PGA Tour
Zach Johnson, the 2007 Masters
winner, shot a 66 to move to third at
8 under, three behind the leaders.
Two-time RBC Heritage champion
Boo Weekley had a 70 and was in
fourth another shot behind. De-
fending champ Brandt Snedeker

rigus (70) were next at 6 under.
World No. 1 Luke Donald failed
to make a move toward keeping the
top spot, his even-par 71 leaving
him at 2 over and tied for 52nd.
Donald needs to finish eighth or
better to fend off No. 2 Rory McIl-
roy, who like Masters champion
Bubba Watson and most other top
golfers, was taking the week off.
Knost's roller coaster of a round
included a 190-yard drive off No. 1
to take bogey followed by an eagle
on No. 2. And there were plenty of
missed fairways on the tight holes
of Harbour Town Golf Links. Still,
he kept close enough with a 69.
"I could have got rattled pretty
easy after that start," Knost said.
"But like I said, I'm really proud of
the way I hung in."
Pettersson threatened to turn the
tournament into a runaway with
his early birdie streak. Knost
would not let that happen, over-

coming some unsteady play to keep
close to his playing partner
It sure wasn't easy for Knost.
He came to the first tee with a two-
stroke lead, then knocked his open-
ing tee shot into some pine straw
right of the fairway and took bogey
He followed that by rolling in a 48-
foot eagle putt from the left fringe on
No. 2 and flashed a wide smile that
even had Pettersson grinning.
Knost's up-and-down ride con-
tinued through the front nine.
There was the lipout on No. 3 for
bogey, the layup and chip to 10 feet
on the par-5 fifth for birdie, and
solid par saves from the bunker on
No. 7 and from some more pine
straw on No. 8.
Then on the ninth after another
wayward drive, Knost punched it to
10 feet and made the birdie to stay
one behind Pettersson.
Things swung Pettersson's way
once more on the 10th, his lead

growing to three shots after he
made birdie and Knost was short
on his approach and missed an 8-
foot attempt at par
Allen takes 5-shot lead
at TPC Tampa Bay
LUTZ, Fla. Michael Allen shot a 4-
under 67 on Saturday to take a five-
stroke lead after the second round of
the Champions Tour's Encompass In-
surance Pro-Am.
Allen played the front nine in even par,
then birdied the par-3 11th and made a
40-foot eagle putt on the par-5 12th. He
finished with a birdie on the par-4 18th to
reach 9 under at TPC Tampa Bay.
Allen won the 2009 Senior PGA
Championship for his lone victory on
the 50-and-over tour.
Bernhard Langer, Sandy Lyle, Corey
Pavin and Olin Browne were tied for
second. Langer and Pavin shot 71, Lyle
had a 69, and Brown a 66.

Community Center. Cost is $5
per class.
The low-impact class is easy,
fun with good benefits. Stretch-
ing helps to make you more
flexible and regular stretching
will help mobility and balance.
This helps to slow down the
onset of common degenerative
conditions, such as osteoarthri-
tis. Stretching increases physi-
cal and mental relaxation and

reduces the risk of joint sprain,
muscle strain or back problems.
Low-impact exercises can im-
prove health and fitness without
harming weight-bearing joints.
Research suggests that moder-
ate-intensity, low-impact activity
is just as effective as high-im-
pact activity in lowering the risk
of heart disease.

Rays rocked by Red Sox, two days running

Associated Press
Tampa Bay Rays starter Jeremy Hellickson pitches in the first inning Saturday against the Boston Red Sox in Boston.

Boston's huge rally sinks TB

Associated Press

BOSTON David Ortiz drove in
five runs and hit one of Boston's five
home runs as the Red Sox pounded
the Tampa Bay Rays for the second
straight day, 13-5 on Saturday
The game was tied 5-all until Mike
Aviles homered after replacing an in-
jured Jacoby Ellsbury as the leadoff
hitter, starting a three-run seventh
inning. The Red Sox added five runs
in the eighth one day after scoring
eight in that inning.
The outburst was more remark-
able because Boston had scored a
total of just 57 runs in 18 games
against Tampa Bay last season.
The Red Sox rallied from a 4-0
deficit in the first inning as Clay
Buchholz (1-0) settled down after that
rough start.
Ellsbury, last year's runner-up in
the AL MVP voting, went on the 15-
day disabled list before the game
with a partially dislocated right
shoulder He was hurt trying to break
up a double play on Friday
Jeremy Hellickson struggled in his
first start since being hit in the head
with a ball during batting practice on
Wednesday He gave up five runs on
seven hits in five innings.
Angels 7, Yankees 1
NEW YORK-- C.J. Wilson beat the
Yankees for the first time in his career, Al-
bert Pujols and his teammates teed off
and the Los Angeles Angels romped past
New York 7-1.
Howie Kendrick, Chris lannetta and
Vernon Wells homered as the Angels
ended their three-game skid and stopped
New York's winning streak at four.
Pujols got in the swing, too, after a
quiet start with his new club. He singled
sharply his first time up, then hit an RBI
double that one-hopped the center-field
wall. He later lined out twice and flied out
to the fence in left.
Wilson (2-0) effectively pitched inside
and worked out of frequent trouble, allow-
ing only one run in six innings.
Rangers 6, Twins 2
MINNEAPOLIS Yu Darvish kept
wriggling out of trouble in five-plus in-
nings, Josh Hamilton homered among his
three hits and the Texas Rangers beat
the Minnesota Twins 6-2.
Adrian Beltre drove in two runs and put
Texas ahead with a single in the seventh
that scored Brandon Snyder, who had a
career-high three hits.
The Rangers won their third straight
and for the sixth time in seven games.
Denard Span led the Twins with three
hits and an RBI double that tied the game
at 2 in the sixth.
But the Twins failed to score with the
bases loaded on three occasions, and
lost for the sixth time in their first eight
Darvish, making his second start, was
removed after hitting Jamey Carroll and
walking Justin Morneau to load the bases
with two outs in the sixth. He allowed two
runs one earned on nine hits, strik-
ing out four and walking four.

Braves 2, Brewers 1
ATLANTA- Mike Minor pitched two-

hit ball into the eighth inning to give At-
lanta's rotation a lift and the Braves sur-
vived a ninth-inning scare to beat Shaun
Marcum and the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1
for their fourth straight victory.
Craig Kimbrel pitched out of a bases-
loaded jam in the ninth, striking out pinch-
hitter George Kottaras and Mat Gamel for
his fourth save.
Minor (1-1) recorded 18 consecutive
outs after hitting Corey Hart with a pitch
to open the second inning. The left-han-
der did not allow an earned run in 7 1-3
innings, becoming the first Braves starter
this season to get an out after the fifth.

Mets 5, Phillies 0
PHILADELPHIA- Jonathon Niese
and two relievers combined on a six-hit-
ter, David Wright homered despite a bro-
ken finger and the New York Mets beat
the Philadelphia Phillies 5-0.
Niese (2-0) allowed five hits and struck
out five in 6 2-3 innings. Bobby Parnell got
four outs and Jon Rauch pitched the ninth.
Wright was 3 for 5, including a long
homer on the first pitch he saw after miss-
ing three games with a broken right
pinkie. Lucas Duda also connected for the
Mets, who are off to a surprising 6-2 start.
Cardinals 5, Cubs 1
ST. LOUIS Lance Lynn pitched ef-
fectively into the sixth inning and Yadier
Molina had two hits and two RBIs, lead-
ing the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-1 win
over the Chicago Cubs.
The Cardinals snapped a two-game
skid with their fourth win in six games.
Chicago, which lost five of its first six, had
won two in a row.
Lynn (2-0) gave up four hits and one
run in 5 1-3 innings. He struck out five,
walked two and lowered his ERA to 1.50.
Nationals 4, Reds 1
WASHINGTON Edwin Jackson
threw a two-hitter for his fifth career com-
plete game and Adam LaRoche added to
his unusually strong start with a tiebreak-
ing two-run double, helping the Washing-
ton Nationals win their fifth game in a row,
4-1 over the Cincinnati Reds.
Other than a rocky second inning,
Jackson (1-0) was as efficient and effec-
tive as can be, striking out nine. He re-
tired 16 consecutive batters in one
stretch, until walking Chris Heisey leading
off the eighth. After a visit from pitching
coach Steve McCatty, Jackson got back
in gear, striking out the side. And he fin-
ished with the flourish of a 1-2-3 ninth.
Astros 5, Marlins 4
MIAMI Carlos Lee drove in the tying
run with a two-out single in the ninth inning,
and an error by left fielder Logan Morrison
allowed the go-ahead run to score as the
Houston Astros rallied to beat closer Heath
Bell and the Miami Marlins 5-4.
Bell, one of the Marlins' All-Star acqui-
sitions this offseason, took the mound
with a 4-1 lead to start the ninth but had a
shaky performance for the third time in as
many outings this season.
The Astros had four hits in the inning
and scored four times, taking advantage
of three Miami errors.
The last miscue was by Morrison,
who misjudged a slicing fly hit by Brian

Giants' Wilson likely
needs surgery
closer Brian Wilson is likely
headed for surgery on his right
elbow after an MRI revealed
structural damage and an issue
with the ligament, and his sea-
son could be in jeopardy.
Manager Bruce Bochy and
athletic trainer Dave
Groeschner said Saturday the
club will seek at least one other
opinion and probably two, in-
cluding from the renowned or-
thopedist Dr. James Andrews,
who performs Tommy John
elbow-reconstruction surgeries.
"There's definitely some is-
sues there," Bochy said. "Ini-
tially I was just being optimistic
he would be fine, but after the
test done yesterday it doesn't
look very good right now....
Likely he's looking at surgery."
The 30-year-old Wilson, who
led the majors with 48 saves in
2010, already had one Tommy
John surgery during college.

BOSTON Nicklas
Backstrom scored 2:56 into
the second overtime Satur-
day to give the Washington
Capitals a 2-1 victory over
the Boston Bruins and tie
the first-round playoff se-
ries at a game apiece.
Braden Holtby stopped
43 shots for Washington in
his second career postsea-
son game.
Tim Thomas made 37
saves for the defending
Stanley Cup champions.
Troy Brouwer opened
the scoring for the Capitals
in the second period, and
Benoit Pouliot tied it with
7:47 left in regulation.
Early in the second over-
time, Washington won a
faceoff in the Boston zone
and Marcus Johansson got
the puck from behind the
net. He passed it to Back-
strom at the left faceoff cir-
cle and he wristed it past
Thomas on his stick side.
Thomas barely moved as
the puck sailed by his
blocker. As soon as it hit the
back of the net, he quickly
headed for the locker room
while the Capitals congratu-
lated each other in the same
corner of the rink where
Boston celebrated its single-
overtime Game 1 victory
Game 3 is Monday night

in regulation.
The Capitals took their
first lead of the series when
Brouwer poked a puck out
of the crease and under
Thomas, who was blocked
by Bruins defenseman Greg
Zanon. That ended Thomas'
postseason shutout streak
at 161:41 a span that in-
cluded shutouts in Game 7
of the Stanley Cup finals
and Game 1 of this series.
Senators 3,
Rangers 2, OT
NEW YORK Chris Neil
scored 1:17 into overtime, and
the Ottawa Senators rallied for
a wild 3-2 victory over the New
York Rangers in Game 2 to
even the first-round Eastern
Conference series.
Neil got to a loose puck in
front off a rebound and back-
handed the puck past goalie
Henrik Lundqvist.
The top-seeded Rangers

seemed poised to grab a 2-0
series lead when Brian Boyle
scored in the third period, but
Nick Foligno tied it with 4:37
left in regulation.
Erik Karlsson also scored for
the Senators, who exacted
some revenge on Boyle for
some shots he took at Karls-
son during Game 1. A brawl
led to the ejections of Ottawa
defenseman Matt Carkner and
New York forward Brandon Du-
binsky just 2:15 in.
Anton Stralman had the
other goal for the Rangers.
Game 3 of the best-of-seven
series is Monday night in Ot-
tawa, followed by Game 4 on
Wednesday night. The series
will return to New York for
Game 5 next Saturday.
Blues 3, Sharks 0
ST. LOUIS Brian Elliott and
Jaroslav Halak combined for a
shutout, the San Jose Sharks
put themselves in an early hole

when Marc-Edouard Vlasic
tapped the puck into his own net
and the St. Louis Blues evened
the first-round series at a game
apiece with a 3-0 victory.
Vladimir Sobotka was cred-
ited with a goal on the first shot
of the game after Vlasic's gaffe.
David Backes and David Per-
ron also scored, and T.J. Oshie
had two assists in the Blues'
first playoff victory since 2004.
Halak and Elliott combined
for 15 shutouts in the regular
season, tying a modern NHL
record, and won the Jennings
Trophy for the fewest goals al-
lowed. Elliott was quite the lux-
ury as a backup after setting a
modern NHL record with a
1.56 goals-against average
and nine of the shutouts.
Antti Niemi made 29 saves
for the seventh-seeded
Sharks, who were shut out in
both regular-season meetings
in St. Louis, with Halak and El-
liott getting one apiece.

Jack Roush at the 11/2-mile,
high-banked track after
Stenhouse regained the
lead with 23 laps to go and
then held on after Friday
night's last restart.

under caution praying for a
good restart," Stenhouse
said. "Everything worked out
for us. It was fun racing those
guys. I had to drive it into
Turn 3 wide open. ... I man-

After the restart with six
laps left, Stenhouse pushed
his Ford out in front before
Denny Hamlin came from
behind to get side-by-side

at the start-finish line.
Stenhouse was ahead by
only .001 seconds after that
first lap before pulling
away for his second victory
this season.
Biffle pulls away from
Johnson for victory
Greg Biffle regained the lead
when he charged under Jimmie
Johnson with 30 laps left Satur-
day night, then pulled away to
end his 49-race winless streak
while giving owner Jack Roush
another NASCAR Sprint Cup
victory in Texas.
Johnson led 156 of the 334
laps while going for owner Rick
Hendrick's 200th career victory.
But he never recovered, even
scraping hard into the wall try-
ing to catch up after Biffle
drove under him in Turn 3 and
completed the pass before the
start-finish line.
Biffle, the season points
leader, went on to win the
fastest Cup race at the 1 1/2-
mile, high-banked Texas track.
His average speed of 160.575
mph put him 3.2 seconds

Saluting rockers

Associated Press
Billie Joe Armstong and drummer Tre Cool of Green Day perform to open the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
induction ceremonies Saturday in Cleveland. Green Day introduced Guns N' Roses for induction into the Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame.

Cleveland's Rock Hall welcomes new class

Associated Press

CLEVELAND The Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame ceremony didn't
miss Axl Rose at all.
The rowdy celebration, which in
past years has included awkward
moments, touching tributes and un-
forgettable performances, rocked
on without Rose, the Guns N' Roses
frontman who may one day regret
skipping a night when 6,000 fans,
1,400 guests and many of music's
biggest stars partied in Public Hall
with the class of 2012.
Hard rockers Guns N' Roses -
minus Rose -headlined this year's
eclectic group of inductees. Others
being enshrined are the Red Hot
Chili Peppers, the Beastie Boys,
folk icon Donovan, late singer-
songwriter Laura Nyro and British
bands the Small Faces and Faces.
Before the ceremony started with
a blistering performance by Green
Day, Chili Peppers lead singer An-
thony Kiedis said it was strange to
be enshrined while on tour
"We're going somewhere," Kiedis
said. "How can we stop and take an
award when really we're just
halfway there? But it is nice to be
together with people that we spent
some incredible years along the
way writing songs and playing
shows in little theaters and sweaty
little transvestite clubs and having
the time of our lives."
As Rose was somewhere else,
Cleveland rocked without him.
Green Day, which was scheduled
to induct Guns N' Roses, got things
started by tearing into "Letterbomb"
with Billie Joe Armstrong leading
the sold-out room of fans and
celebrities in an "Ayy-ooh" chorus.
The first mention of Rose's name
drew a smattering of boos that were
soon drowned out by the music.
Rose, the screeching frontman
and ringmaster of the G N' R travel-
ing circus of dysfunction for
decades, said earlier this week that
he didn't want to be part of the cer-
emony because it "doesn't appear to
be somewhere I'm actually wanted
or respected."
He cited a continuing rift with his
former band mates as the main rea-
son for not attending. His decision
disappointed fans and ended
months of speculation about
whether the original Guns N' Roses
lineup would unite for the first time
since 1993 and perform any of their
classic hits like "Welcome to the
Jungle" or "Sweet Child O' Mine."
As the ceremony approached,
fans gathered on the sidewalks out-

Today's birthday: The possibility for some significant
achievements in the year ahead are much better than they
have been for quite some time. However, nothing will come
about by itself it'll be up to you to make the magic happen.
Aries (March 21-April 19) Most of your companions will
prove to be fun, but there might be one who rubs you the
wrong way. If you're smart, you'll ignore his or her shenani-
gans and enjoy everyone else's company.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) -You'll be reasonably consci-
entious about your duties and responsibilities, with the ex-
ception of one you find to be distasteful. You'll sweep it
under the rug.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) Someone who doesn't seem
to get along with any of your other friends is likely to rain on
your parade. There is no reason why she or he should be
included in a get-together.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) If you find yourself to be

side the historic venue, which
hosted the Beatles in 1964, for a
peek at some of rock's royalty.
Alice Cooper was the fan favorite
on the red carpet, signing auto-
graphs, telling printable stories and
waving in response to cheers of
"Alice, Alice!"
"New York is glitz, Cleveland is
the nuts and bolts," said Cooper,
comparing the cities that share the
rock hall induction ceremonies,
which are held at New York's Wal-
dorf-Astoria and come to Cleveland
every third year
Cooper, standing under a canvas
canopy protecting against threaten-
ing skies, marveled at the scene and
said he was glad to be around.
"It's our version of the Academy
awards," he said. "If you can stay
alive to 27 that seems to be the
expiration date for rock stars."
Funk icon George Clinton made a
splashy entrance, arriving in a sil-
ver bullet-shaped vehicle familiar
to amusement park thrill riders.
Wearing a gray herringbone coat
and black fedora, he stood and
waved from the back seat
Rose isn't the only lead singer
Rod Stewart, who was to be in-
ducted and perform with Faces,
came down with the flu this week.
Faces will be joined for a short
set of songs by Simply Red's lead
singer Mick Hucknall, a friend of
the band.
Like Guns N' Roses, the Red Hot
Chili Peppers emerged from Los
Angeles during the 1980s when Sun-
set Strip's rock scene was domi-
nated by "hair" bands more


more easily distracted than usual, you'll need to take con-
trol. Keep your primary objectives in focus and don't let
emotional issues throw you off course.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) When everything is going your
way, you'll be a delightful person to be around. However, if
not, the ogre within you might suddenly emerge and tarnish
your image.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Be extremely careful when
participating in an endeavor that requires an investment.
What you put up could turn out to be just the opener for
something far more financially demanding.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Watch out if you take the idea
of a co-worker today and transform it into something better
without giving him/her any credit. Regardless of how differ-
ent you make it, don't ignore his/her input.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Even if certain persons are in
the position to be helpful, they still might not be able to alle-

concerned with their tight lycra
pants and eyeliner than their
sound. Not the Chili Peppers, who
found their unique groove by blend-
ing funky hooks and a punk ethos.
While their lineup has undergone
some changes founding guitarist
Hillel Slovak died of a heroin over-
dose in 1988 Kiedis and bassist
Flea have survived personal highs
and lows and the band remains one
of music's top live acts.
Kiedis said Slovak would have
loved the honor
"I think that he would have a
good laugh," Kiedis said. "Yeah, it
would certainly mean something to
him as he cared deeply about music
and the love of the brotherhood of
being in a band and being a creative
force in the universe, which he is
and always will be a brother in
everything we do."
Three white middle-class smart
alecks from New York, the Beastie
Boys were initially dismissed as
beer-swilling frat boys following
their 1986 debut album "License To
Ill," which featured songs like "(You
Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To
Party!)" and "Girls." But their fol-
low-up, "Paul's Boutique," was ac-
claimed by critics and brought the
Beasties credibility in the black
hip-hop community.
During a speech that was at times
comical but heartfelt throughout,
John Mellencamp inducted Dono-
van, a balladeer from the flower-

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Don't alter anything in a
critical work-related situation that is moving along quite
well, regardless of how much better you think you can
make it. If it doesn't work, it'll be your posterior.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) It isn't likely that you'll re-
ceive any help from friends if you make demands of them.
However, ask in a gentle manner and they'll knock them-
selves out for you.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) -All commercial involve-
ments must be carefully scrutinized if you hope to come out
on the plus side of the ledger. Some of your ideas might be
good, but only up to a point.

Today in

Today is Sunday, April 15,
the 106th day of 2012. There
are 260 days left in the year.
Today's Highlight:
On April 15, 1912, the
British luxury liner RMS Ti-
tanic sank in the North At-
lantic off Newfoundland at
2:20 a.m. ship's time, more
than 22 hours after striking
an iceberg; 1,514 people
died, while less than half as
many survived.
On this date:
In 1817, the first permanent
American school for the deaf
opened in Hartford, Conn.

ham Lincoln died, nine hours
after being shot the night be-
fore by John Wilkes Booth at
Ford's Theater in Washing-
ton. Andrew Johnson be-
came the nation's 17th
In 1992, hotel magnate
Leona Helmsley began serv-
ing a prison sentence for tax
evasion (she was released
from prison after 18 months).
Ten years ago: Four U.S.
soldiers were killed in
Afghanistan when rockets
they were trying to destroy
blew up.
Five years ago: Riot po-

dozens of anti-Kremlin
demonstrators in St. Peters-
burg, Russia, on a second
day of protests against the
government of President
Vladimir Putin.
One year ago: The first of
three days of tornadoes to

Planning stages

Finalists emerge to

redesign three sites

at National Mall
Associated Press
Lakeside gardens, dining
rooms hovering over water,
grassy new amphitheaters
and underground pavil-
ions at the foot of the Washington
Monument have emerged as final-
ists in a design competition to
overhaul neglected sites on the
National Mall.
Designers and architects are
dreaming big for a chance to im-
prove the place sometimes called
America's front yard. One vision
calls for a garden "museum with-
out walls" in part of the mall
called Constitution Gardens. An-
other would "peel up" the land-
scape of the Washington
Monument to reveal a theater and
visitor amenities below ground.
The Associated Press had an
exclusive early look at the results
of a competition conducted by the
nonprofit Trust for the National
Mall. The finalists' concepts were
on display this past week at the
Smithsonian Castle and National
Museum of American History
Since last September, architects
and designers have been compet-
ing for the chance to make over
areas near the Capitol, Washing-
ton Monument and Constitution
Gardens, which was once imag-
ined as a pastoral park near the
Lincoln Memorial. It has since
been left as a fetid pool with
crumbling edges, surrounded by
broken sidewalks. Each of the de-
signs would bring major changes,
adding amenities including food
options and restrooms.
"The face of the mall is going to
change quite dramatically," said
Donald Stastny, an architect hired
to oversee the competition. "If
you're in Constitution Gardens,
it's going to be cool, as opposed to
'How did I end up in this place?"'
The nonprofit National Mall
group aims to raise $350 million
to help restore the mall, begin-
ning with one of these sites. For-
mer first lady Laura Bush joined
the fundraising effort last year,
and the group committed $875,000
to the design competition.
After sifting through entries
from 32 teams, a jury picked four
finalists for each of the three
sites. Organizers are seeking pub-
lic comment to help select a win-
ner for each site in May The
group aims to build one of the de-
signs, overhauling either Consti-
tution Gardens or the Washington
Monument grounds by 2016.
Midway through the competi-
tion, Congress voted to remove
the third site from the National
Park Service's property, citing se-
curity concerns. Union Square,
which includes the Capitol Re-
flecting Pool and a memorial to
Ulysses S. Grant, had been envi-
sioned as a space for demonstra-
tions or protests, but Congress
placed it under control of the Ar-
chitect of the Capitol and Capitol
Police instead.
Still, a winning design for it will
be sent to congressional over-
seers. One option calls for a new
reflecting pool that would send
ripples from the House and Sen-
ate sides of Congress. On the
other side, a visitor could speak

Russia and the rise of Vladimir Putin

Special to the Chronicle
Masha Gessen, "The Man
Without a Face: The Un-
likely Rise of Vladimir
Putin" (New York: River-
head Books, 2012,314 pages)
From the end of World
War II until the collapse of
the Union of Soviet Socialist
Republics in the late 1980s,
Russia was seen by the
United States as a military
giant that threatened our
way of life. Then suddenly
the USSR was gone. It
turned out that its dysfunc-

tional economic system and
its military had never been
as powerful as we imagined
it was. This collapse com-
pletely changed the global
balance of power.
In the case of Washing-
ton's global priorities, today
more focus is placed on two
issues: the ever-growing
economic and military
might of China with its pop-
ulation four times that of the
United States; and the in-
stability in the Middle East,
including the threat of Is-
lamic extremism.
But Russia cannot be ig-
nored. It has important min-
eral reserves, a literate

population, an important
geographical position link-
ing Europe and the Middle
East and an economy that is
supposedly moving away
from state planning to a
competitive open capitalis-
tic system.
This book by Russian
journalist Masha Gessen
helps us understand the
events during the past two
decades and the unpre-
dictability of Russia's fu-
ture. Her focus is on Putin
and the system he heads,
but in the process of laying
that out, she tells us much
about today's Russia.
She begins with an ac-

count of the rise and fall of
Mikhail Gorbachev, which
left Boris Yeltsin, a man of
great limitations, in charge.
Most Russians favored
opening up the economy to
allow competition and free
enterprise, but there was no
consensus on how to do it.
Nor was it clear what kind
of democratic political sys-
tem could be constructed to
replace the old communist
institutions. But, lurking be-
neath the surface, one pow-
erful group remained
relatively untouched the
KGB, the ruthless internal
secret police. Bewildered
by events, Yeltsin in 1999

turned to the head of the
KGB (now FSB) and named
Vladimir Putin, a relatively
little-known figure, as prime
While this was going on,
economic reforms were tak-
ing place to break up the
state industrial monopolies
- most of which were inef-
ficient. They were sold off to
insider groups and persons
from the private sector who
had access to capital. It was
a gold rush and many who
moved quickly made for-
tunes. But then it became
clear that the Russian legal

the county's budget

terms if the millage rate re-

is one of three op-
tions the BOCC will consider as
a solution to its budget woes.
Commissioners can either
raise the millage rate to gener-
ate more tax revenue, cut re-
serves, or cut services to
citizens. The millage rate is the
level of taxes charged on each
dollar of taxable property. The
level of taxes the county col-
lects is determined by applying
the millage rate to the value of
taxable property. Raising or
lowering either of these affects
the level of taxes levied.

I'm calling in regards to our
ridiculous gas prices. Why are all
the gas companies, the prices of

other? It's all the same from
county to county. I drive all the
way from here, Citrus County, to
Lakeland. (Don't) they all,
the counties, have differ- 0

Why the tax?
I've called before and I
can't seem to get any an-

tax. But if you buy it in CAL

tax and if they don't have a sta-
ple, there's no tax. Is there some
way you can itemize things and
let the people know what we're
supposed to pay taxes on and
what we don't?

Flying our turbulent skies

From his office window,
Thomas W Horton, in his
fifth month as CEO of
American Airlines, can see in the
distance the Manhattan-size foot-
print of Dallas-Fort
Worth airport, where
American has 85 per-
cent market share; it
also has 68 percent in
Miami, gateway to
South America's
booming market. In /
the foreground, how- C
ever, he can see one j
reason why, neverthe-
less, his company re- Georg
cently entered OTI
bankruptcy the cor-
porate headquarters VOI
of Southwest Airlines.
Southwest, the most successful
of the "low-cost" carriers that
proliferated after the 1978 dereg-
ulation of the industry, has been
profitable for 39 consecutive
years, while the rest of the indus-
try was losing $60 billion between
deregulation and 2009. South-
west, JetBlue and the others have
30 percent of the domestic mar-
ket, up from 10 percent in 1999.
The "two tier" airline industry is,
however, becoming a thing of the
past. All carriers are going to
have low costs because of what
Horton calls "fear-based disci-
pline," aka competition.
In the last three decades there
have been 192 airline bankrupt-
cies. Not coincidentally, fares, ad-
justed for inflation, are 18
percent lower than in 2000. Forty
years ago, a majority of Ameri-
cans had never taken an airplane
trip. Now everyone is more free
than ever to move about the coun-
try, air travel having been democ-
ratized by liberating it from
In 1938, the Civil Aeronautics
Act codified a government-

Eastern's from 14.9 to 11.6 and
TWAs from 15.1 to 11.9. Why this
bureaucrat's dream of near sta-
sis? Because between 1950 and
1974, the Civil Aeronautics Board
received 79 applications for
startup airlines and re-
jected them all, believ-
ing that if even one
passenger would be
taken from an existing
carrier, competition
would be excessive.
Intellectuals are
often the last to learn
things, so John Ken-
E neth Galbraith, Har-
e Will vard's celebrity
IER economist and one of
liberalism's pinups in
DES the 1950s and 1960s, ar-
gued in his 1958 book
"The Affluent Society" that mod-
ern marketing advertising and
other supposedly dark arts is
so powerful that big corporations
could manufacture demand for
whatever they manufactured. In
1958, Ford put all its marketing
muscle behind the Edsel.
Undiscouraged by evidence, in
1967 Galbraith, full of the pro-
gressive's enthusiasm for the ad-
ministrative state, asserted in
"The New Industrial State" that
the U.S. economy would soon be
dominated by large corporations
essentially immune from compe-
tition and hence from market tur-
bulence. Four years later,
Southwest launched its first
flight. The "legacy carriers" -
those that had operated under
the CAB regime were in for
heavy weather
American bought TWA shortly
before 9/11, adding capacity just
when less capacity was suddenly
required. American is the last of
the six legacy carriers to enter
bankruptcy The other five are
United and Continental, now
merged, Delta and Northwest, also
merged, and US Airways, which
entered bankruptcy twice before
merging with America West
Airlines have resembled those
local governments that have

given unsustainable contracts to
unionized public employees and
now are contemplating bank-
ruptcy (Watch Stockton, Calif.,
which may soon be the biggest
municipal bankruptcy since the
Depression.) Bankruptcy has
been a management tool for air-
lines that cannot stand strikes -
there has been no strike at a
major airline since 2005 be-
cause they must amortize their
aircraft even when not flying.
Bankruptcy has enabled carriers
to shred improvident contracts
entered into to purchase labor
If American's pilots had the
work rules covering Continental
pilots before the merger with
United, American could have
hundreds fewer pilots, and more
earnings: A senior captain flying
a wide-body plane makes more
than $200,000 a year and has rich
pension and medical plans.
Horton has done taxpayers a
favor by deciding not to turn
American's non-pilot pensions
over to the Pension Benefit Guar-
anty Corp., the deeply under-
funded federal agency that would
pay only a portion of what em-
ployees were expecting. Ameri-
can will pay benefits already
accrued, but henceforth employ-
ees will have defined contribution
rather than defined benefit plans.
Airline bankruptcies are pecu-
liar: Just last July, American bought
$38 billion worth of new fuel-effi-
cient aircraft. It takes money to
save money and an airline.
Horton is imperturbably non-
committal about the possibility
that the industry's next consoli-
dation will meld American with
perhaps US Airways or Delta:
"Our plan is to create the best
outcome for our stakeholders."
Which is a nice way of saying,
"Please leave your seatbelts fas-
tened." Turbulence is normal,
and normally good for travelers.

There has been much printed
regarding Sen. Charlie Dean's
stand on the Department of Chil-
dren and Families' contract for
child protective services with
the sheriff's office. At first
glance it appears to be a politi-
cal rift, yet the senator has main-
tained it is a financial issue for
the state. The senator has not re-
sponded with an explanation to
the Chronicle Editorial Board to
elaborate on his stance. The
Chronicle appears very enam-
ored with Sheriff Jeff Dawsy and
has a long history of not favoring
the senator
Commissioner Meek and the
sheriff state there will be posi-

ice will not be up to current
standards. At the same time,
they insist that DCF states the
cost will be the same whether
the sheriff or the state provide
the service. That is not
Contrary to what might be
thought, DCF likes contracts be-
cause it takes a responsibility
and liability away from them.

sues. Contracts are not reduced

ment budgets get adjusted

throughout the year Often when
working for Juvenile Justice, we
would see cuts and position
freezes if revenues were not
coming in quickly enough or if
there were situations where
other departments needed more
funds. DCF cannot guarantee
the current funding without a
contract. It is very possible the
state feels it can provide the
service, which it is providing in
60 other counties, for less than
the sheriff.
Recently Bill Grant, a taxpay-
ing citizen, was critical of the
county commission's support of
the sheriff. His approach was di-
rect and not sugarcoated, but as
a citizen he had a right to that
opinion. He did not deserve to
be chastised by the Chronicle.
Likewise, Commissioner Meek's
response to Mr Grant did not
warrant the praise he got from
the Chronicle. The senator and
all commissioners are Republi-
cans. One would think the issues
between them could be worked
out without the negative envi-
ronment the commission and the
Chronicle appear to be fueling.

sulted in wars, but did not, the Ger-

A portion became American
Samoa, which is now the southern-
most official U.S. territory It con-
tains 77 square miles about the
size of Washington, D.C., and one-
tenth the size of Citrus County -
and it has a population of approxi-
mately 60,000 souls.
Our visit was to Pago Pago and

the surrounding area on the island
of Tutuila.
As was explained in the excur-
sion brochures, American Samoa is
very much like Hawaii was 75 years
ago, that is, it's primitive by today's
standards. Our tour vehicle was not
an air-conditioned bus with bath-
room facilities. No, it was a brightly
painted, remodeled commercial
truck with plywood seats.
But what the tour lacked in com-
fort, it made up for with authentic-
ity. So often, what is touted as a
"village life" visit at such locales is
a performance produced in a the-
ater with little if any true local color
Not so in Samoa.
We arrived at a small village in
which the occupants were all re-
lated; the family performed native
dances and rituals for us in an out-
door setting, complete with hot sun-

shine and comforting rain; and,
they even allowed us to sample
their home-cooked cuisine!
By coincidence, it was Feb. 14,
and that evening back on the boat,
Cheryl and I were decked out in our
St. Valentine's Day Ball finery -
she was ever so lovely in a red
evening dress and I managed to

As we were served by waiters
wearing white gloves, we talked
about the events of the day and
agreed that such pampered
pageantry is nice, but so is the
simple joy we'd witnessed in the
daily life of the Samoans.

U.S. economic woes

put in perspective

To many Americans, things are looking
bleak just now. The U.S. economy is in
a shambles. If we get rapid inflation as
the result of the Federal Reserve's printing
money coupled with continued high unem-
ployment and slow or no growth in the econ-
omy, we could see what was called
"stagflation" in the 1980s or a de-
flationary depression. Everyone
but the super rich would suffer
Many believe the Chinese are
overtaking us economically They
believe the Chinese can control us
because we have borrowed more
than $1 trillion from them. The
Chinese are hacking into our tech-
nology and stealing information to
support their economy and their
military They have become more Dr. Willia
aggressive in trying to control the OTI
oceans in the Far East VOI
Actually, things may not be so
bad as they might seem.
Our economy is bigger than those of China,
Japan and Russia combined. China's eco-
nomic output is less than 40 percent of ours.
If they continued to grow at current rates
(they won't), it would take them more than a
decade to equal us.
The Chinese population, four times ours, is
decreasing and getting older due to the "one
child" policy Within 10 years they will feel
the absence of young people to replace and
support retirees. Their natural resources are
exhausted. They have no clean water Their
economy is held back by inefficient govern-
ment-owned industries and by a corrupt po-
litical system that will not guarantee private
property rights. The military owns factories
and other productive resources. Would-be
entrepreneurs are restricted by having to
have political connections and by lack of
patent protection. There are small insurrec-
tions occurring every day, particularly in the
western regions, against the local bureaucra-
cies. China is slowly failing.
True, China holds over $1 trillion of our
bonds and could sell them at a loss. That
would drive interest rates to the sky world-
wide, but doing that would cripple their own
export-driven economy As for having to pay
them back, the bonds are payable in dollars
- something the Fed seems to be able to
print at will.

times what they do on defense, and we are

cost of providing services is

Because the economy is so
rough, most working people
have gone years without get-
ting a raise. Most are just glad
they have a job.
And retirees dependent on
interest income have found
in recent years that getting 1

By comparison, our population and our

Integrity Florida, a welcome

new crusader for ethics reform

As my last session in the Florida Sen-
ate came to a close, I hoped against
hope that the Florida Legislature
would finally get serious about meaning-
ful ethics reform.
For five years, I'd tried to
pass a bill that would ban law-
makers from sponsoring, voting
or lobbying for items that would
financially benefit themselves
or a family member. But de-
spite a grand jury's call for
ethics reform and public per-
ception of elected officials at an
all-time low, it was clear the
Senate's leadership had no de- Paula D
sire to address conflicts of in- FLOF
terest. VOl(
Florida, so you know, led the
country in federal public cor-
ruption convictions from 2000-2010, ac-
cording to the U.S. Department of
Justice. Since 1976, nearly 1,800 people
have been convicted of public corruption
in Florida's federal courts. That's an aver-
age of 49 public corruption convictions a
year, or about one a week for 35 years.
Public corruption is the reason Forbes
magazine ranked several Florida cities on
its list of America's Most Miserable
Cities. And a recent report by the Center
for Public Integrity gave Florida a C-
minus for corruption risk, as well as fail-
ing marks for enforcing ethics in
The demand for ethical behavior must
come from the voters, who need to be ed-
ucated and engaged about the influence of
money in politics. So it's good news that a
new organization, called Integrity Florida,
has formed to shine a light on the problem
of public corruption.
Integrity Florida is a nonpartisan, non-
profit research institute whose mission is
to promote integrity in government and ex-
pose public corruption. Upcoming re-
search reports will focus on state and local
ethics violations, campaign finance revela-
tions and government transparency issues.
Leading the organization is Dan Krass-
ner, who is no stranger to the intersection
of money and politics, having served in
senior management positions with the
Florida Chamber of Commerce and
Florida TaxWatch.
Dan shares my concern about the legis-
lature refusing to adopt conflict-of-
interest rules that prevent lawmakers
from personally benefitting from their
votes. He points out that legislators may


receive income from lobbying firms, yet
they only have to declare the conflict
within 14 days of their vote. Integrity
Florida wants state government to operate
with at least the same level of
integrity and transparency as
local governments, which oper-
ate under much stronger con-
1, flict-of-interest rules.
One of the organization's
board members, Marty Rogol,
. led Palm Beach County's ethics
reform initiative in 2010. Today,
Palm Beach has an ethics com-
mission that has the power to
ockery launch an investigation, some-
IDA thing the Florida Ethics Com-
'ES mission cannot do, absent a
citizen's complaint Palm Beach
also has an independent in-
spector general whose office has a secure
funding source. And it has a local ethics
code stronger than what is expected of
state officials.
Ben Wilcox, who formerly led Common
Cause in Florida, has joined Integrity
Florida as research director because he
believes we need an ethics watchdog.
"Surveys of corruption in the states have
all indicated Florida's at the top of the
list." It's an economic development issue,
he adds. After all, what business wants to
do business in a state known for public
The group's strategy for accomplishing
statewide reform starts with a grassroots,
local-level approach. The organization has
engaged Tea Party chapters, the League of
Women Voters and other civic groups as
partners willing to take its research and
policy recommendations to their local gov-
ernments. By addressing government in-
tegrity at a local level, the organization
hopes to inspire a statewide movement.
Rather than accept the reality that
elected officials will use their positions to
benefit themselves and well-connected
friends, we, the people, must now try to
change the mindset from the outside.
Since no high-ranking elected official is
willing to carry the banner, Integrity
Florida is best positioned to get the grass-
roots effort started.

Letter to the EDITOR

Electric fact check
One of our more prolific letter-writers
here in Citrus County is WC. Young of
Crystal River He has claimed that elec-
tric cars cost more to operate than gas-
powered cars, even going so far as to
imply General Motors may be hiding
some facts.
Mr Young also claims to have tried
very hard to gather information regard-
ing the cost of charging batteries. I
merely "Googled" Chevy-Volt-Mileage
and had any number of links at my dis-
posal. The mpg suggested in most links is
35-40 mpg if you run out the battery and
the gas all in one ride. This, however, was
never the intent of an electric car It is
not an over-the-road vehicle.
If you use the Volt less than 35 miles
per day, you can skip the gas station most
of the time. This brings us to the cost of
charging batteries. Mr. Young claims a
cost of $18.56 based on a 16-hour charge
at $1.16/kwh. Even though he states the
charge was only for 10 hours, 10 hours

ously managed design se-

The concept here is that if electricity
did cost $1.16/kwh ais claimed, the aver-
age home using 1000 kwh per month
would have a $1,160 electric bill. This is
not an acceptable solution. Well, it seems
he put the decimal point in the wrong
place. Electric is generally around 10 to
11 cents per kwh (Progress charges a lit-
tle over 12 cents including taxes and
fees.) My usage last month was 843 kwh
and my bill was $103 which is 12-plus
cents per kwh.

tinues, but because it is based on the
same voodoo math, all credibility is lost I

New this year, the major-
ity of these tests will now be
taken on a computer in-
stead of by paper and pen-
cil. This comes with its own
set of issues from not having
enough computers, Internet
failure due to overload
caused by the large number
of students taking the test at
the same time, reliance on
multiple choice questions
and the fact that not every-
one does well without hav-
ing the ability to scribble
out their problems to solve
or make notes.
What the tests seemingly
do not measure are creative
thinking, problem-solving
and collaboration abilities
- all skills often cited as
the most essential abilities
necessary for workers in
the 21st century. I don't
know of any employer who
is really interested in a po-
tential employee's FCAT
scores or how well they can
answer a multiple-choice
How did we get here in
the first place? Many years
ago, at the beginning of the
"accountability" movement,
most of us were supportive
of ways to measure student
learning and provide re-
ports to the public about the
effectiveness of our schools.
But then the mission
started to change. Test
scores were used to create
school grades with reward

money for schools that did
well. And then more tests
were added.
Now the targets of the
tests are also the teachers
themselves. Laws were
passed that require the stu-
dents' test scores to not only
evaluate their teacher's ef-
fectiveness but also to de-
termine the teacher's pay
and whether or not they
would keep their job next
year regardless of the abili-
ties of students or the chal-
lenges they faced. Even
when the teacher taught
her heart out all year long,
one 80-minute test could
determine her or his fate
and future career path. Is
this going too far? Most of us
involved in education be-
lieve it is.
But despite the fairness
or relevance of these test
scores, our students must do
well to ensure they move on
to the next level of educa-
tion whether it be the next
grade or the college of their
choice because, in the end,
they are the only ones who
are actually being tested
and they must do their best
for their own sake.
There is much parents
can do to help their chil-
dren be successful on test
Be positive and sup-
portive of their efforts; help
dispel anxiety
Make sure they get a
good night's sleep.

Feed students a good
breakfast and have them
wear comfortable clothes.
Explain that finishing
first is not the goal, as well
as finishing last is not a
crime or anything to be em-
barrassed about. Slowing
down produces more right
answers; speeding up leads
to guessing.
Talk about test taking
skills such as reading each
question thoroughly -
there could be tricks in the
wording if they skip over
parts of the question. The
advice is to read each ques-
tion more than three times.
Talk about the impor-
tance of doing well, not giv-
ing up in frustration.
Knowing that some stu-
dents believe they cannot
pass the test, challenge
them to prove themselves
Send them off to
school with kisses and
To our students and
teachers: We are 100 per-
cent behind you. We know
you have worked hard; we
know the pressure is on. We

and are cheering for our
students whom we have
faith in.
You can do it!

Beauty business

Avon hoping to get a

makeover with new CEO
AP Business Writers

Avon is hoping a new CEO can give it a
much-needed makeover.
The struggling cosmetics seller on
Monday tapped long-time Johnson & John-
son executive Sherilyn S. McCoy as its new
chief executive. The announcement ended a
four-month search to replace embattled
CEO Andrea Jung, who had come under fire
for failing to stem the company's declines
and wrap up a bribery investigation.
Avon Products Inc. said Jung the first
female CEO of the 126-year-old company-
will remain executive chairman after
McCoy takes over later this month. Shares
of the New York-based company fell more
than 3 percent Monday
McCoy's emergence at Avon comes less
than two months after she was passed over
for the top spot at Johnson & Johnson,
which in February announced that Alex
Gorsky would take over as CEO. Bill Wel-
don, who has served as J&J's chief execu-
tive for the past decade, plans to step down
at the company's annual shareholder meet-
ing April 26.
The announcement from Avon comes just
a week after the company rejected a $10 bil-
lion takeover offer from the smaller beauty
products maker Coty Inc.
Founded in 1886, Avon became a fixture
in households across the country as its le-
gions of "Avon ladies" went door to door
selling makeup to family, friends and ac-
quaintances. Its brands include Avon Color,
Skin-So-Soft and mark.
The company markets its products in
more than 100 countries through about 6.4
million independent sales representatives.
Its annual revenue is more than $11 billion.
But North American sales have dropped
off over the years and about 80 percent of
Avon's $11 billion in annual revenue now
comes from overseas. The company has fre-
quently missed analysts' earnings expecta-
tions and posted weak sales in some of its
largest markets.
Meanwhile, Avon's stock has taken a beat-
ing. The company's shares fell 73 cents, or
3.1 percent, to close at $22.69 Monday
Through the end of last week, its stock was
down about 26 percent from its 52-week
high of $31.60 last May Its shares now are
worth a little less than half of their all-time
high of $46.11 in 2004.
The Securities and Exchange Commis-
sion also is investigating Avon's contact with
financial analysts in 2010 and 2011 as part of
a bribery investigation.
There are outside pressures as well. Last
week the company rejected Coty's $23.25
per share takeover bid, dismissing it as a
low-ball offer. At the time, that was a 20 per-
cent premium to Avon's previous closing
stock price. Coty said it won't pursue a hos-
tile takeover offer
Jung, 53, joined Avon in 1994 as president
of product marketing. She rose through the
ranks to become CEO in 1999 and added the

This undated photo provided by Avon Products Inc. via PR Newswire shows Sherilyn S. McCoy.
Avon Products Inc. says it has tapped one-time Johnson & Johnson executive McCoy as its new
CEO as the struggling beauty products company looks to regain its past luster, according to
reports Monday, April 9. McCoy will take over the post from Andrea Jung, who will stay on as
executive chairman.

chairman title in 2001. When Avon an-
nounced its search for a new CEO this past
December, the company said it would sepa-
rate the CEO and chairman roles.
Expectations will be high when McCoy
becomes Avon's CEO and a board member
on April 23. McCoy has 30 years of experi-
ence with Johnson & Johnson, where she
served as vice chairman of the executive
committee and a member of the office of the
chairman, with responsibility for brands in-
cluding Neutrogena, Aveeno and
Prior to that, she was worldwide chair-
man of pharmaceuticals.
"Sheri has a unique combination of

strategic and finely-honed operational
skills, a significant turnaround track record,
global experience and people leadership,"
Fred Hassan, lead director of Avon's board,
said in a statement on Monday
McCoy's resignation from Johnson &
Johnson, which is effective April 18, will
mean she won't have to sit through that
Gorsky, who heads the medical devices
and diagnostics unit, and McCoy, who heads
the pharmaceutical and consumer busi-
nesses, had been considered the most likely
successors to Weldon after both were
named company vice chairmen in January
of last year.

Workshops help prepare for job interviews

Linda Keyton, one of our
Human Resources recruit-
ment specialists who works
in the nearby Chiefland office, was
recently a guest panelist at a career
day talking to high-
schoolers about what to
expect out there in the
real world when it comes
to landing a job. She was
mightily impressed by a
question posed by fellow
panelist Desmond
Knight, HR director for
Central Florida Electric c
Cooperative and a mem- L
ber of the Workforce aura

rectors. CONNI
The question, put to
job candidates, is "How
did you prepare for this interview?"

view, did you nail it? Were you con-
In her blog Come Recommended,
Heather R. Huhman writes, "We all
know the best way to prepare is to
over-prepare. Review your resume
and be comfortable talking about
everything on it, look through lists
of interview questions and come up
with answers. It's important to think
of tricky questions and come up
with answers that will make you
Topping the list of Huhman's four
trickiest questions: "How did you
prepare for this interview?"
It seems to me that the question
isn't "tricky" at all if by tricky
we're talking about sneaky or diffi-
cult. After all, if you have truly pre-
pared for the interview, you'll have



no problem answering the question
- being able to do so goes deeper
than simply ticking off items on
your preparation punch list.

edge about the industry,

Byrnes with assignments.
FORCE That effort is a critical
CTION step in your journey to-
ward employment. If
your starting point is
landing an interview, and your final
destination is a job offer, what you
do along the way will definitely in-
fluence where you end up.
That concept is explored deeper
in Jenna Goudreau's recent Forbes
article, "Watch out! Ten interview
questions designed to trick you"
which shared interview questions
culled from Joyce Lain Kennedy's
"Job Interviews for Dummies."
Again, I would argue these are not
designed to trick you but to get to
the heart of what the hiring man-
ager needs to know about you as a
potential employee.
Toward that end, you obviously
have a serious interest in helping
them reach a positive conclusion
about who you are and how you will
fit in. Goudreau notes this is your
opportunity to impress by going be-
yond explaining how you've done

your homework to showing it: "Re-
veal your knowledge of the industry,
company or department by asking
informed questions and comment-
ing on recent developments."
Workforce Connection has a vari-
ety of workshops and hands-on clin-
ics available to help you get ready
for your next opportunity to shine.
Each month, we offer "Nail That
Interview" as well as "Navigating
the New World of Work" sessions at
the Resource Center in Inverness.
The interview workshops in Citrus
County are booked through April,
but check for any last-minute open-
ings or offerings for May by contact-
ing the center at 352-637-2223 the
"Nail That Interview" workshop
also takes place April 26 in Ocala.

center takes place from 1:15 to 5

various fields that hire candidates
with college degrees, certifications

with Employ Florida and apply for
live job openings.
Those interested in attending
should dress professionally, bring at
least 10 printed copies of your re-
sume and be ready to learn as much
as possible about the employers.
After all, the next time you meet,
you may just be asked how you pre-
pared for the interview.

recently decided to pay off
our mortgage, since in my

presently available.
We have a total net

this is just how we live. We
believe in promptly pay-

odd: "Not enough debt ex-

of satisfactory accounts is
too few in proportion to
total number of accounts."

about applying for credit

live debt-free. However,

proving market"

Uses for hydrogen peroxide

H hydrogen peroxide
has many uses. You
probably have a
dusty brown bottle in the
back of your cabinet. Pull it
off the shelf, check if it's 3-
percent grade and use it
around your home. If you
don't have any, it's cheap to
buy and great to have on Sara
hand. Sar
Here are a few ways to FRU
use it: LIV
Laundry: Works well as a
bleach alternative and to remove
stains. For bloodstains, wet the stain
with hydrogen peroxide and sprinkle
baking soda on it You can apply the
hydrogen peroxide and baking soda a
few times until the stain lifts. One
reader, Karen, shares: "I use this all
the time as a stain remover on light-
colored clothes and it works great. I
dab it on with a Q-tip or cotton ball,
depending on how large the stain is,


and rub gently Hydrogen
peroxide is a mild bleach-
ing agent, so you might not
want to use it on darker-
colored clothing unless
you test first in a discreet
spot to make sure it doesn't
fade the color. If the
stained area is really large,
I would soak it in water
with 1/4 cup or so of hydro-
gen peroxide added and
see if that loosens the

De-skunk a pet: Combine one quart
hydrogen peroxide, 1/2 cup baking
soda and two teaspoons Dawn dish-
washing liquid. Wet your pet's fur and
lather the mixture like shampoo.
Leave the mixture in for 10 to 15 min-
utes and rinse.
Sanitize surfaces: Mix one part per-
oxide with one part water and pour
into a spray bottle. Clean countertops,
mirrors, bathroom and cutting

boards, or use as a vegetable wash.
Works well to clean insulated lunch
bags, too. Don't store mixture. Only
mix what you'll use that day Another
reader, Jeannie from Pennsylvania,
shares: "For mold or mildew in the
bathroom, mix one cup peroxide, one
cup white vinegar and two table-
spoons baking soda. Mix ingredients
and pour into a spray bottle. Be care-
ful when pouring into bottle, as it will
foam up."
Seedlings: Using one teaspoon of
peroxide to one cup of water in a
spray bottle, spray your flats to speed
germination and prevent damping off.
Another reader, Kim from New York,
shares: "Peppers are notoriously
tricky to get started because they re-
quire continuous warmth and humid-

under my cupboards to provide light
to my seedlings. I moistened a paper

then folded it and put it into a little
plastic container with a lid, which I
placed on TOP of the light fixture. It is
just the right temperature to get the
seeds started, and boy, do they grow
quickly! This can also be done in plas-

sure they are still moist and to make
sure there is no fungus or anything on

solution on my seedlings. Once they
have sprouted, pull them out of the
filter and plant them. I went from no
peppers to more peppers than I need
with that one little trick. Works great
for all sorts of seeds, and I've even let
some seedlings grow like this all the
way to leaves without any ill effects.
You can do this with flowers, too, and
if you want them very closely spaced
(small plants or ground cover), just
plant the filter along with the seeds.
Also works with paper towels, but I
prefer the filters as I like to remove
the seedlings and the filters don't
come apart as easily"

Place mats are plentiful at thrift
stores and garage sales, or you can
find them on sale after holidays. If
you find the heavier two-layered
place mats (typically print on one side
and solid colored back), you can rip
the seam at one end and stuff each
place mat with polyester fiberfill, sew
it closed and make quick and easy pil-
lows. The first reader tip shares her

Grow more food

with less work

Perennial vegetables add

beauty, diversity to garden

From Mother Earth News

Suppose a new agricul-
tural breakthrough prom-
ised higher yields, a longer
growing season and much
less work. These claims can
become real benefits for
those willing to make a
change to a way of garden-
ing that more closely mim-
ics nature.
Nature's ecosystems al-
ways include not only an-
nual vegetables, but also
perennials edible roots,
shoots, leaves, flowers and
fruits that produce year
after year. Besides fruit-
bearing trees and shrubs,
more than 100 species of
perennial vegetables grow
well in North America.
By growing perennials,
you'll create a more diverse
garden that ultimately
needs less from you: You'll
spend less time working and
more time harvesting.
"It's as close to zero-work
gardening as you can get,"
says Eric Toensmeier, au-
thor of Perennial Vegeta-
bles. "Our perennial
vegetable beds planted 11
years ago still bear food, and
all we do is add compost
and mulch once a year"
Three ways
to incorporate
garden perennials
Push the Envelope.
"One method to begin
perennial edible gardening
is to expand the edges of an
already established gar-
den," says Bethann Weick,
garden educator at D Acres,
an organic permaculture
farm and educational home-
stead in Dorchester, N.H.
Perennial vegetables do
well in beds devoted only to
perennials because their
extensive root systems grow

undisturbed by digging and
cultivating. However, inter-
planting with annuals can
also be a successful strategy
and one way to control ero-
sion in your perennial
If space or conditions
won't allow you to expand
your garden's edges, you can
experiment and create a
perennial vegetable border
within the bounds of your
existing vegetable garden.
Dive into Edible Land-
scaping. If you already grow
a perennial ornamental bor-
der or foundation shrubs,
consider integrating some
perennial vegetables, such
as sea kale or sorrel. Many
have attractive leaves or
flowers, and they won't be-
come so aggressive that they
overtake ornamentals. If
your gardening space is lim-
ited, try growing perennial
vegetables especially
greens in containers.
Take advantage of cur-
rently unused areas of your
landscape, matching the
conditions to the appropri-
ate perennial edibles.
Pioneer a Plant Commu-
nity. If you're already grow-
ing perennial vegetables and
want to take garden diversi-
fication to the next level,
consider permaculture gar-
dening. Like nature's ecosys-
tems, this approach
promotes greater partner-
ships between plants, soil,
insects and wildlife. In per-
maculture designs, edible
vegetables, herbs, fruiting
shrubs and vines grow as an
understory to taller fruit and
nut trees. The technique is
sometimes called "layering."

mendations, the following

Designing HVAC systems for Florida's climate

Special to the Chronicle

The challenges of designing
HVAC systems in Florida are
unique and frequently misunder-
stood. The need to keep excess heat
and moisture out of our homes and
at the same time keep dry, cool air
inside the home imposes demands
that are often contradictory Effec-
tive techniques that work in other
parts of the country do not apply in
Florida's hot, humid climate. The
often-used answer of upsizing the
air conditioning system leads to a
host of health and environmental
problems that are a focus of in-
creasing media and legal attention.
Poor system design can lead to ex-
pensive lawsuits.
There is no simple solution to
these problems. Instead, the system
designer must approach the situa-

tion as a balancing act between the
opposing forces of new energy
goals and building envelope im-
provement Customers are getting
used to paying reduced energy bills
that are the result of energy-effi-
cient construction. Building enve-
lope R-values the ability to stop
energy transfer through building
materials are going up, and win-
dows are getting better Those two
factors result in lower sensible heat
ratios for the cooling equipment.
Before a house design is finalized,
the HVAC contractor, builder, and
homeowner need to get together to
ensure that all the common issues
affecting indoor environmental
quality, energy costs, and comfort
are addressed. There are four is-
sues that need to be agreed on be-
fore construction starts:
What the design conditions
are, including summer, winter tem-

peratures, and indoor thermostat
House siting determines the
location of buffer rooms, like bed-
rooms and garages on east and
west sides.
Low E selective surface win-
dows or dynamic glazing to mini-
mize solar loads on the home.
The consideration of south-
facing windows and two-foot eaves
or overhangs limiting solar expo-
sure should be thought about too.
Does the house plan allow for
the air handler and the duct work
be placed in a conditioned space?
The access to utilities is important,
because you need to know if the
utilities are all electric or if natu-
ral gas is available.
The A/C unit must be sized, ac-
cording to the Florida Building
Code, using the Manual J computer
software. With a properly sized cool-

ing system, humidity is removed
from the indoor environment to
eliminate mold issues and increase
inside comfort of the inhabitants.
Locating the ductwork in condi-
tioned space provides a more effi-
cient delivery system because all of
the cool air generated in the air han-
dler is delivered into the living
space. The duct system, to work
properly, should be sized with the
Manual D or other sizing software to
ensure even airflow with no drafts
and hot and cold spots in the home.
Homeowner comfort should be
the prime concern for any contrac-
tor and future homebuyer. Energy
cost and energy demand are going
up. Taking into consideration cost
and demand, homeowner comfort
should not have to be sacrificed to
reach our energy efficiency goals.
If you have questions or want ad-
ditional information please call

your local utility, energy rater, or
HVAC contractor

Reduce wildfire risk

Don t get burned' because ofpoor site design

any Citrus County residents
choose to live in wooded areas to
be closer to nature, escape urban
stress, enjoy wildlife viewing, to have pri-
vacy, and to create cooling shade. Life in
the wildland-urban interface
(areas where homes are adja-
cent to or intermixed with
forests or agricultural land)
provides multiple benefits for
those that choose to live there.
However, along with the ben- .
efits comes a degree of risk. The
risk of wildfire may be particu-
larly high during times of
drought. The landscape sur- Joan B]
rounding a home or other struc- FLOI
ture can become fuel for a FRIE
wildfire, contributing greatly to
the risk of damage. LIV
Vegetation that is overgrown,
continuous, and close to a home may im-
prove wildlife habitat and conserve en-
ergy, but it also increases the home's
vulnerability to wildfire. One way to re-
duce fire risk to homes and other struc-
tures is to incorporate fire-wise practices.
Being fire-wise means living safely near
natural habitats. Through careful land-
scape design and vegetation management,



actions can be taken to protect your home.
The first step in creating a fire-wise
landscape is to consider the local fire his-
tory, site location, and overall terrain of
your yard. Are you surrounded by a more
urban or natural landscape?
Are there other firebreaks (wa-
terways, roads, etc.) between
your yard and the natural areas
Fire-wise landscaping incor-
porates fire safety into land-
scape design. A key principle
when landscaping to reduce
wildfire risk is to create an area
adshaw of defensible space that ex-
IDA- tends at least 30 feet outward
I DLY from the house in all directions.
Within this defensible space,
NG vegetation should be trimmed
to break up the continuity of
plants. Through ongoing maintenance,
highly flammable plants should be verti-
cally and horizontally separated or re-
moved. Vertical separation should be
maintained between plants and plant
groups by removing all ladder fuels from
this area and pruning lower branches on

Framed page from hymnal makes nice decorative piece

Dear John: In 1968 my wife and I
were touring in Europe and came
across some people outside a
church or cathedral in Barcelona selling
pages from old hym-
nals. A half dozen or
so large hymnals
were laid out on two
or three tables and .
the folks were tear-
ing out pages and -
selling them to '-
passersby. We de-
cided to buy two of
them, perhaps pay- John Sikorski
ing the equivalent of
$10 or $20 each. We SIKORSKI'S
planned to keep one ATTIC
and give the other as
a gift to my sister. The seller told us that the
hymnals were centuries old, perhaps from
the 16th century, and were lambskin.
We had both framed several months
later in Taranto, Italy, and upon our return
to the U.S. gave the smaller one to my sis-
ter as a Christmas gift, keeping the larger
one for ourselves. It now hangs in our
home. I have attached two pictures, one of
the whole framed page which is approxi-

mately 23 inches by 33, and another of
some of the detail.
We have often wondered if the pages are
genuine, how old they might be, and if they
are valuable. We would appreciate your
opinion. -J.N.D., Internet
DearJ.N.D.: Hymnal pages from the 14th
to the 17th centuries typically sell in the
$150 to $300 range. They were originally
produced in large quantities and are not
considered rare. Although your piece does
not look that old, it is likely to be genuine
because of the low dollar values and little
collector interest. A nice Remember When
for you and your wife and a pretty good re-
turn on the money
Dear John: I have attached four pictures
of my entire shaving mug collection. I have
decided to sell the collection and would
like to dispose of the whole lot of 77, that is
94 pictured here, less 17 of the occupa-
tionals that are already spoken for. Can you
recommend someone who might be inter-
ested in buying the entire lot of 77 all to-
gether? I will be quite reasonable and fair
with regard to their value but, again, wish
to sell them all together, not individually
-JH., Internet
Dear J.H.: Shaving mugs have been a

specific category of collecting for a long
time. The hot spot within the category is
occupational mugs, with scenes depicting
various trades and occupations. They are
the most sellable portion of your collec-
tion. The rest will be difficult to sell as a
lot, except perhaps to a dealer or someone
looking for an instant starter collection.
Dear John: Thanks for your articles, they
are great. Here are some pictures of a cig-
arette music box. It measures 9 inches
long, 5 inches wide, and 4 1/2 inches high.
The exterior is inlaid wood, very colorful
and beautiful. Wind it up and it plays
"Santa Lucia."
On the bottom there are two labels. One
says, "Santa Lucia" and the other says
"Brevettato IL 1953." Can you give any in-
formation on this item? Keep up the good
work. -B., Homosassa
See ATTIC/Page E12
This page from an old European hymnal is
very likely genuine; however, since such
pieces are fairly common, they've
attracted little interest from collectors.
Most hymnal pages from the 14th to the
17th century sell in $150 to $300 range.

Second use for a place mat: I
use a red place mat as the
"naughty spot" for kids' time-
outs. It's perfect because I can
move it around the house.
We've even taken it on vacation
with us. CeCe, email
Pump dispensers: I pur-
chased shampoo and condi-
tioner with pump dispenser
tops, and I don't know how
many times I've refilled them.
Just one squirt is all I need, and
I never waste any Haven't
bought shampoo for months
now, and I'm not running out
nearly as fast! NicJean,
Fels-Naptha: I've used Fels-
Naptha soap to remove car
grease stains from my winter
jackets, and boy does it work! A
little elbow grease helps. I gave
a bar to a friend and her hus-
band used it to get pet accident

stains out of their carpets. He
was really impressed with the
product! -Mollie, Canada
Chalk paint: If any of you
hang around decor blogs and
are seeing all the rage about
Annie Sloan chalk paint, but
don't want to pay $50 a quart, I
have been making my own for
cheap. Just mix equal amounts
of artist gesso with acrylic or
flat paint. That's it. I use white
gesso mostly, but if you are
using dark paint like black,
blue, red or purple, you may
want to use grey gesso. Also, the
'no-sand' part of chalk paint is
true; chalk paint is paint plus
calcium carbonate. Gesso is
calcium carbonate and adhe-
sive or primer. If you go to
Hobby Lobby or Michaels you
can get the gesso in many sizes
(use your 40-50 percent off
coupons!). I've painted a
wooden chest in duck egg blue,
a six-drawer box and a HUGE
dresser in black. After you
paint it and distress it, be sure
to use the Minwax paste finish-

ing wax. You can get it online or
in the paint section at Home
Depot. C.L., Texas
Bread-tie labels for
wires/power strips: Use a plas-
tic bread-tie or clip to label
your power cords. Write on the
ties or clips with a fine-tip
Sharpie and wrap them around
the cords. This is especially
handy for power strips! -

ure out a way to get that last lit-
tle bit of wax out from the
bottom of my jar candles. I have
some jars that are tall and some
that are short and would like to
recycle or repurpose them ver-
sus throwing them out. Got any
tried-and-true ways to do this?

Dear Libby: You can use a

one, you can buy a new one for
less than $10. Use it to enjoy the

trees up to 10 feet from the ground.
Horizontal separation should be main-
tained by separating groups of plants or
landscape beds by nonflammable areas
(e.g. decorative gravel or stepping
stones) and keeping plants at least 2 to
5 feet out from the home. In some cases,
dense shrubs and flammable saw pal-
mettos that are close to the house
should be removed and replaced with
low-growing shrubs and groundcovers
that are low in flammability.
Dead plants and plant materials
(fallen leaves, dead branches) should
also be removed. These practices
help to disrupt the spread of fire
through the landscape, allowing the
home to better survive on its own and
providing firefighters with sufficient
room to operate. Lawns and walk-
ways create "firebreaks," which in-
terrupt the path of a fire.
When selecting plant materials for
a fire-prone area, choose less-flam-

mable plants, such as flowering dog-
wood, sycamore, beautyberry, red
maple, redbud, magnolia, oak trees,
sweet gum, hop hornbeam, or winged
elm. Many native plant species are
adapted to local fire conditions.
An effective management strategy
is to maintain your landscape, espe-
cially during times of drought Be sure
to keep your irrigation system well
maintained and free from debris.

style; they have a degree of
visual and functional truth
that makes people want to
live with them."
In period TV shows, light
fixtures are essential in de-
livering the right look. On
"Mad Men," they're practi-
cally characters in them-
selves. Tall, slender wood,
colorful opaque glass,
gleaming metal every set's
personality is punctuated by
one or two statement lamps.
Didul says the production
team favored vintage lamp-
shades despite their fragility.
"The slubbed silk on them is
just beautiful, and the light
through them is really
unique," she says.
Hers came from Los Ange-
les-area prop shops and vin-
tage stores.



You can find similar ver-
sions, such as Lamp Work's
walnut Tulip table and floor
lamps (from $224.89 to
$427.39 at www.wayfair.com),
and www.shadesoflight
come's long-necked turquoise
or orange ceramic table
lamps ($129 each).
Babette Holland's new
capsule-shaped Gemini and
Apollo lamp designs refer-
ence the '60s space missions.
She's done some of the bases
in solid hues, others in her
signature stripes, but the
palette is true to the era -
cranberry, gold, olive, sap-
phire ($450 each at
"We've been told that the
colors remind people of
those 1950s tumblers, so they
immediately love them," she
says, talking about the alu-
minum drinkware found in
many homes at the time. "So
much of the design of that
period is timeless. We did

I r-o


our best to tap into that and
bring it forward."
Most of the modem art on
"Mad Men" isn't actually vin-
tage. Didul has found great
pieces at rental galleries such
as Art Pic in Los Angeles, and
through artist friends.
The dramatic dot graphic
in the show's ad agency of-
fice was created by the art
department under Bishop's
guidance. The piece echoes
the work of English Op Art
proponent Bridget Riley
Similar posters are at
www.zazzle.com, starting at
about $100.
You can find reproduced
examples of one of that era's
most prolific designers,
George Nelson, known for
sunburst, asterisk, polygon
and ball wall clocks (Polygon
clock, $590 at wwwwayfair
com), as well as the molded
polypropylene Swag desk
chair and Marshmallow sofa
($499 and $3,299 respectively
at www.hivemodern.com).
Debra Kling, a New York-
based color consultant and
decorator, sees Mid-century
Modem style as grounded in
neutral hues. "Simple lines,
natural elements like stone
and stained wood, and earth
tones, punctuated by what I
call 'Diner Brights'- orange,
magenta and turquoise," she
says. To stay true to the style,
Kling advises mixing these
hues into a background of

neutrals, and keeping the
floor plan open.
Didul and her team have
done that on the "Mad Men"f
sets, incorporating colorful
throw pillows, ashtrays and
drinkware throughout the
Etsycom is a good source

Pucci prints, modem florals
and groovy graphics are a
fun way to add '60s style with
textile accents.
The offices of "Mad Men's"
advertising agency, Sterling
Cooper Draper Price, are
filled with cool furniture that
would work at home, in liv-
ing and work spaces alike.

Nesso mushroom table lamp

You can buy a tart mold (or
use a foil muffin pan) and
pour the wax into the mold
to make candle tarts. An-
other option to remove the
wax is to boil a saucepan of
water and place the jar in

Dear Sara: What do you
think about storing cloth-
ing for your children if
there are seven years of
age between them? My
daughter just had another
boy in January Her older
son is 7 years old. I feel
there are too many years
between them. Won't the
styles change before the
clothes can be put to use?
-Nini, Pennsylvania
Dear Nini: My boys are
seven years apart. I saved a
few clothes. Styles do
change a bit, and oftentimes
elastic doesn't hold up well,
but some clothes are fairly
classic, such as solid col-
ored shirts, t-shirts, winter
gear and jeans. We have
wonderful sources in my
area for secondhand
clothes, so I figured I had
access to cheap clothing. It' s
hard for me to store much of
anything for seven years, so
I limited it to one small tote
of clothing and toys.
Boys tend to be much
harder on clothes than
girls, so it's nice to at least
have some clothes saved
for play My kids have al-
ways had their nicer cloth-
ing for school and outings
and play clothes that I did-
n't care as much about if
they got stains or torn. My
girls are four years apart
and I saved almost every-

Now here's a funny
thing: I gave a neighbor a
lot of clothes for her son,
who was only four years
younger than my oldest.
She then gave me clothes
for my youngest son when
her son had outgrown
them. Some of the clothes
were originally my oldest
son's, but I didn't have
them taking up space at my
house for years. As for your
daughter, if the clothes are
good quality and just a lit-
tle dated, you could place
them on consignment, sell
them on eBay or at a yard
sale, or host a clothing
Dear Sara: I want to
make chocolate-covered
bananas. What kind of
chocolate sauce would you
use? -Dawn, Arkansas
Dear Dawn: You can use
chocolate chips, high qual-
ity chocolate bars, almond
bark or candy wafer melts.
I suggest you melt the
chocolate in a double
boiler. If you don't own a
double boiler, you can
place the chocolate in a
heat-proof bowl and place
it on top of a simmering
saucepan of water. You can
melt the chocolate in the
microwave, too. Be careful
that you don't bum it The
candy wafers have their
own microwave directions.
For chips or high quality
chocolate, place it in a mi-
crowave-safe bowl and mi-
crowave it for a minute on
medium. Stop the mi-
crowave to stir the choco-
late every 20 seconds.

April in Florida brings a bounty of flowers


Jane Weber

April in Florida is one
of the driest months,
yet many plants
flower naturally For biodi-
versity, every garden should
to have a variety of different
kinds of plant material:
cone-bearing cycads, flow-
ering palms, coniferous
evergreen trees, tall canopy
and shorter understory
trees, dense deciduous and
evergreen shrubs, flowering
herbaceous annuals and
perennials, ferns, grasses,
moss, lichens and vines. Un-
developed habitats natu-
rally contain all these types
of plants, and the creatures
that depend on undisturbed
ecosystems for food, shelter,
breeding sites and cover
from predators.
Native Coontie, a cone-
bearing cycad, is one of the
oldest types of plants on
Earth. Female cones are
fertilized in March locally
Cones swell in April as
seeds develop. Ripe seeds
will drop naturally from the
mother in December, but
not sprout until rains arrive
in June.
Several species of pine
trees finish fertilization.
Inch-long, pencil-thin male
cones can be seen littering
the ground beneath lon-
gleaf, slash, loblolly and
sand pines. Seeds fall from
ripe cones and germinate
from December to March.
Old cones are shed in April.
Flowering trees for April
include tulip poplar, oaks,
fringe tree and red buckeye.
They provide nectar for but-
terflies, pollen for other in-
sects and food for

caterpillars. Tall and stately
tulip poplar is at the south-
ern limit of its range in Cen-
tral Florida and is the host
plant for Eastern Tiger
Swallowtail caterpillars.
Native understory paw
paws reach full bloom as
March blends into April.
Paw paws are eaten by
caterpillars of the Zebra
Swallowtail butterfly
Well-planned gardens can
support both native and
non-invasive exotic plants.
While older forms of azalea
hybrids have finished their
flash of spectacular flowers,
in April the Encore Azaleas
continue their long-term re-
peat blooming from Sep-
tember through to May with
breaks after heavy winter
frosts. Orange 'Fashion'
Azaleas also repeat bloom
from March to April.
'Knock-Out' roses are an-
other long-term bloomer,

first flush of flowers in

Happy Returns From
Perennial Gardens
Keeping your perennial
plantings going isn't much
different from caring for an-
nual crops. In fact, after
they've been established,
perennial vegetables practi-
cally care for themselves.
"These plants have deeper

root systems, so they need
fewer outside resources -
such as fertilizer and water
- than annual crops usually
need," says Toensmeier
With its increased diver-
sity, your garden should
have fewer insect and dis-
ease problems. For added
insurance against pests,
Weick interplants calendula
and other flowering plants
to attract beneficial insects.
Otherwise, maintenance is
simple. Feed perennials an-
nually with compost or an-
other organic fertilizer,
replenish the mulch each
spring, and remove any
weeds that sneak in. Con-
sider these measures a
small investment, because
"planting perennial edibles
is planting for the future,"
Weick says. "Over time,
you'll put in less work and
harvest more food, while
building diversity and stew-
arding the land for future
