N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterBEVERLY HILLS awrence Laskorski remembers the day he heard the news of the attack on Pearl Harbor. He was 14, a boy from the Bronx, visiting Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn with his uncle, watching the men unload fish from the boats. They had eaten clams and drank wine for lunch and when they were done they heard the news. I remember I didnt like the clams, he said, but the news didnt mean anything to me because I was just a kid. But as time progressed, Laskorski began to realize the world was at war. My friends kept disappearing enlisting or getting drafted, he said. Not quite 17, he decided to join, too. Why the Navy? I wasnt big on walking, he said with a chuckle. I didnt want to go on long hikes with a pack on my back. The Navy sounded cleaner. He went to see the recruiter on Water Street in Manhattan. He had to wait until he turned 17 on May 27, 1944. Even then his father had to sign for him. On Sunday, Laskorski turned 85. As a birthday gift, his friends Arnold and Mary-Ann Virgilio were MAY 28, 2012 Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best Community VOLUME 117 ISSUE 295 50 CITRUS COUNTY Happy Memorial Day: Thank a veteran for his or her service SPORTS: Indy winner Dario Franchitti wins the Indianapolis 500, but the day belongs to Dan Wheldon./ Page B1www.chronicleonline.com LOCAL EFFORTS: Get food Area groups offer low-cost food options and free meals each week./ Page A7 INDEX Comics....................B9 Crossword................B8 Editorial....................A8 Entertainment..........B5 Horoscope................B5 Lottery Numbers......B4 Lottery Payouts........B5 Movies......................B9 Obituaries................A6 TV Listings................B8 Classifieds..............B10 ONLINE POLL: Your choice?Do you agree with the experts who say this year is going to be a normal hurricane season?

S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterAcross the country, sales of new homes increased last month, confirming the housing market is making a slow recovery. According to numbers released Wednesday by the U.S. Commerce Department, sales increased 3.3 percent from March to April to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 343,000, which followed a 7.3 percent decline in March. In Florida, while the number of home sales fell slightly in April, statistics from Florida Realtors showed the inventory of homes for sale shrunk as the median sales price and pending sales rose considerably. Nevertheless, Realtors Association of Citrus County President Sarah Spencer said Thursday that Citrus County is not doing as well as Florida as a whole, but the local market is moving in a positive direction. According to data from the Realtors Association of Citrus County, the median sales price for detached homes rose 5.4 percent, from $82,000 in March to a little more than $83,000 in April, up from $79,250 in April 2011. The number of pending sales jumped significantly, from 208 to 240 in April, though the number of closed sales dipped slightly in the same month. The trend in tightening inventory continues as the months of inventory dropped 32.2 percent for single-family units to 9.8 months, down from 14.5 in April 2011. Currently, Spencer said buyers, especially investors, are purchasing many of the homes priced less than $125,000. Anything more than $125,000 is moving slower. Local home sales slowly improve Investors purchase houses priced at less than $125,000 Chronicle file photo Realtors Association of Citrus County President Sarah Spencer said while Floridas inventory of homes for sale has shrunk, Citrus County is not doing as well as the state. But the local market is moving in a positive direction.

It is set to be heard for its final adoption at the June 12 meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners. Previously a long and cumbersome document, businesses, builders and developers found it full of layers of regulations and obstacles. Now it is more user-friendly. The Land Development Code, or LDC, sets rules for how a parcel of land can be used. Often it is called setting zones. Local governments regulate the size, type, structure and use of land to make districts for homes, businesses, agriculture, recreation and industry. Its the new, improved land development code, said Jenette Collins, director of the countys Land Development Division, speaking earlier this month before the Citrus County Council (CCC), a consortium of county civic clubs, homeowners association and environmental groups. Its essentially streamlined, Collins said. It brings in some of the ordinances that we oversee. The nifty thing about this code is that its going to be electronically designed. Youll be able to go online. Its got pictures and hyperlinks. Hyperlinks take users directly to a reference in the code. We encourage Florida Friendly Landscaping, Collins said.

TO HIS NAVY Laskorski shares his seafaring memories N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterAlthough every human grieves, veterans grieve uniquely, said Jonathan Beard, Hospice of Citrus County grief service manager. Days like Memorial Day bring grief to the forefront, both as veterans remember fellow service members who have died and as they face their own mortality. Beard said an estimated one in four of all Americans who die is a veteran. An average of 30 to 40 funerals for veterans or their spouses are conducted daily at the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell. At the end of life, thats when monsters often come out of the closet, especially with combat veterans, Beard said. One of the services Hospice offers is matching veterans under hospice care with volunteers who are military veterans. Its difficult to know what questions to ask, especially if youre not a veteran yourself like me, Beard said.

Around THE STATE Citrus County Missing man found in St. Pete HOMOSASSA A Homosassa man who went missing Saturday afternoon was recovered unharmed shortly before 3 a.m. Sunday in St. Petersburg. Randall Morton, 78, who suffers from early-onset dementia, picked up his dogs from a dog groomer about 3 p.m. in Homosassa. For the next 12 hours, Morton became the subject of a Silver Alert as law enforcement officials searched for him after he failed to return home. Mortons wife received a call from Morton around 6:30 p.m., when he told her he was all turned around, but was heading toward Bradenton on State Road 64. Citrus deputies tracked his cell phone to Myakka City in Manatee County (near Sarasota) at 9:09 p.m. A second time Morton phoned his wife, she told him to stay where he was. St. Petersburg authorities found him tired, but safe, and transported him halfway to Citrus deputies who took him home.

From staff and wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 MONDAY, MAY 28, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Local sheriffs captain wins state award Special to the ChronicleFollowing in the footsteps of Sheriff Jeff Dawsy, Capt. Buddy Grant was recently named Floridas law enforcement officer of the year by the Grand du Florida of La Societe des Quarante Hommes et Huit Chevaux. The society is an independent fraternal organization of U.S. veterans, more commonly known as the Forty and Eight. With members nationwide, the Forty and Eight established the Outstanding Law Officer of the Year award program in 1977. John C. Wodetzki, chief of police of Lincoln, Ill., was selected as the first national recipient of the award. Each year, the society selects a law enforcement officer of the year from the various Forty and Eight groups throughout the state. The winner is presented with a special plaque and then nominated at the national level. In 2012, Sheriff Jeff Dawsy won the national award. Grants law enforcement career began in 1994 when he became a deputy for the Polk County Sheriffs Office. Prior to joining Polk County, he served in the U.S. Army from 1988 to 1991, and the Florida Army National Guard from 2001 to 2004. During his time in the military, he received a number of awards, including the 7th Infantry Division Soldier of the Year, the Academic Achievement Award, Leadership Award and the Path Finder Award. In 1997, Grant joined the Citrus County Sheriffs Office as a deputy and quickly rose through the ranks because of his leadership qualities and innovative policing practices. He was promoted to sergeant, operational sergeant, lieutenant, operational lieutenant, district commander, then captain over a period of 10 years. At the CCSO, he has been responsible for a multitude of accomplishments, including saving the life of an infant and implementing various highimpact policing programs. Grant has a bachelors degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Central Florida and a masters degree in business administration from Saint Leo University. Grant will be presented with his award in early June at a ceremony honoring all state award recipients. He then becomes eligible for the societys same award at the national level. Former state award winners are: Cpl. Shannon Phillips, Hero of the Year 2008-2009; Deputy Juan Berrios, Hero of the Year 2009-2010; Sgt. Ryan Glaze, Law Officer of the Year 2009-2010; and Sheriff Jeff Dawsy, Law Officer of the Year 2010-2011. What an honor to be recognized, Grant said of his recent selection. Its such a privilege to do what I do every day. I never expected an award for it. Capt. Buddy Grant named Floridas law enforcement officer of the year Capt. Buddy Grant Sassy centenarian C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterAn Inverness woman who achieved the age of 100 on Sunday had a sharp comment about her accomplishment: I dont recommend it. Neighbors in Royal Oaks appreciate Alexandrine Mercedes Campbell Austin for her quick, if sometimes self-deprecating, wit. It feels the same as when I was 10 years old, Austin said about her centenary birthday. Same darn thing; Im a nuisance to everybody. But I was more so then than I am now. Austin was born May 27, 1912, in Lindsay, a community in the Kawartha Lakes region of southeastern Ontario, Canada, to Patrick John Campbell and Kathryn Downey Campbell, the last living of their 10 children. She was married to Fred R. Austin from Sept. 19, 1937, until his death Aug. 15, 1986. They came to Florida on June 21, 1978. I lived for 27 years in Beverly Hills, Austin said. But coming to Florida was not her idea. For 42 years, I listened to him (her husband) say: When I retire, Im going to go to Florida, Austin said. Not me. I wanted to go up to northern Michigan because I skated on speed skates until I was 65 up in the Toronto area. Austin and her husband became U.S. citizens together. We didnt get our American citizenship until 1950, Austin said. When we got home, at least 42 people were in our house. Great big table brought in with red, white and blue flowers and a flag to celebrate us becoming citizens. They were all three or four generations of cousins. Now they are all dead and gone, but me. I dont know enough to die. But Austin, in fact, knows quite a bit. Ive had all the tests to prove that my brains are good, she said. She keeps her mind well occupied, and explains how she spends her time. I play cards and watch the good-for-nothing television, Austin said. I used to read about five books a day, but I cant because I hurt my eyes and I dont read that much anymore. As the doorbell rang with another birthday party guest, Austin called out, Is that the white Cadillac I ordered? Even though shes hung up her skates, Austin still thinks on her feet.

Life and soul of the party States gopher tortoise management plan ready for input Special to the ChronicleA new draft of the fiveyear update to the Gopher Tortoise Management Plan for the state is available for review. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is asking for public input. The threatened gopher tortoise is classified as a keystone species, because its extensive burrows offer shelter to more than 350 other species such as the federally threatened eastern indigo snake. Gopher tortoises were identified more than 235 years ago by naturalist William Bartram as he explored Florida. Gopher tortoise burrows average 6.5 feet deep and 15 feet long, provide a home for hundreds of other species and offer great amenities: constant temperature, refuge from fires and bad weather, and protection from predators, said Deborah Burr, the FWCs gopher tortoise plan coordinator. When gopher tortoises decline, so do the occupants of their burrows, such as indigo snakes, gopher frogs and burrowing owls. The revised draft Gopher Tortoise Management Plan for the first time addresses the total picture of the tortoise and its tenants, Burr said. The draft plan and link to comment on the plan are available at MyFWC.com/Gopher Tortoise. Public comment will be accepted on the draft plan through June 25. More than 100 individuals and stakeholders already have made suggestions on improving the original 2007 plan, through written input and a public meeting. Draft revisions to the Gopher Tortoise Management Plan are scheduled to go before the FWCs Commissioners at their meeting Sept. 5 and 6. Goals include: Minimizing loss of gopher tortoises by ensuring humane, responsible relocation from lands slated for development; Increasing and improving species habitat; Enhancing and restoring populations where the species no longer occurs or has been severely depleted; Maintaining its function as a keystone species by also conserving commensal species. Floridas first Gopher Tortoise Management Plan was approved by the FWC in 2007 and was scheduled to be updated five years later. Under the original plan, Florida has made progress in slowing the decline of gopher tortoises by providing options to move tortoises off lands slated for development as well as opportunities for homeowners and landowners interested in conserving tortoises on their property. Since 2007, the plan has restored and managed an annual average of 36,000 acres of gopher tortoise habitat, expanded protected tortoise habitat by more than 6,500 acres, and humanely relocated more than 4,000 gopher tortoises from development sites to public and private properties that afford the species long-term conservation. Stakeholders in the Gopher Tortoise Technical Assistance Group were instrumental in the development and implementation of the Gopher Tortoise Management Plan and continue to provide input during the plans revision process. Assistance group representatives come from a wide range of interests: industry, conservation, land development, state and local government, universities and research, commercial services, private landowners, large federal and state land managers, animal advocacy and the general public. In Florida, it is illegal to harm gopher tortoises or their burrows.

Dietary supplements: Senators tabled (killed), 77-20, an amendment to S 3187 (above) requiring firms that market dietary supplements to register their products and ingredients with the Food and Drug Administration. A yes vote opposed the bid to increase what is now minimal federal oversight of these products. Bill Nelson, Yes; Marco Rubio, Yes. Genetically altered salmon: Senators refused, 46-50, to give the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration joint authority with the Food and Drug Administration over a firms application to market genetically engineered salmon as a safe food. A yes vote was to expand the review and thus slow the application. Bill Nelson, Yes; Marco Rubio, No. Democrats interest plan: Senators failed, 51-43, to reach 60 votes for passing a Democratic bill to prevent interest rates on student loans from doubling to 6.8 percent on July 1 and paying for the bill by ending a tax break for certain owners of Subchapter S corporations.

Bill Nelson, Yes; Marco Rubio, No. Republican interest plan: Senators defeated, 34-62, a Republican version of S 2343 (above) that also sought to avert a doubling of Stafford student-loan interest rates on July 1.

The LDC rewrite brings it into compliance with the countys Comprehensive Plan, a frame of reference for long-term decision making, and with the rules of other entities, such as the state and water districts. Once the new LDC is adopted, it can be challenged for up to a year, according to Kerry Parsons, assistant county attorney, who advised members of the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission about it at a regular meeting this month. There are rules and regulations, Parsons said. That is what the Land Development Code is. They govern all the unincorporated areas in this county, and that is what people need to follow in regards to anything they are doing in regard to land development. Through Florida statutes, there is a one-year window of opportunity for anyone to come up and challenge any of those rules and regulations once they have been passed. Once the window of opportunity shuts, Its a lot harder to challenge a rule for consistency with the comprehensive plan. After the LDC is adopted June 12, it will be sent to the state. Once its received by the secretary of state, it becomes effective, Parsons said. That is when the one year of challenges can begin. Those challenges can carry legal expenses with them. Speaking up beforehand is the better answer, as many individuals have done during the two years the rewrite has been in the works. As an example, the requirement for biological assessments on the land had been removed as being repetitious because such assessments already were required by the Southwest Florida Water Management District. But several county residents alerted officials about the need to reinstate the requirement, particularly as the countys website states the LDC not only promotes orderly development, but preserves natural resources. Among those residents was Michael Czerwinski, a Lecanto-based environmental consultant. Czerwinski said he, Theodora Rusnak and Pat Wade, who are members of the CCC, and a few other people who sat on the Stakeholders Advisory Group (SAG), noticed the absence of the biological assessment requirement in a draft. A discussion ensued at SAG before it was disbanded, Czerwinski said. When we were talking about biological assessments, when it got out that it wasnt in the Land Development Code, the initial drafts, the building component said the water management district requires that, so we did a little research. The research paid off. The water management district only requires biological assessments on sites that have wetlands on them, Czerwinski said. So if you have an uplands site, or it comes under their permitting authority, if its a small exempt project, a minimal impacting project, if its all uplands and theres no wetlands, then the water management district does not require a biological assessment. Czerwinski said Vince Cautero, director of the Department of Planning and Development, worked through the research with his staff and presented information to county commissioners, who concurred the requirement for a biological assessment was needed for development of sites larger than 5 acres. Biological assessments chart the presence of threatened or endangered plant and animal species on parcels of land. Permits and relocation may be required before the property can be developed.

have never talked about their experiences in the service, and often even under-report their physical or emotional pain and fear. Some dont even admit that they are veterans, their trauma is so deep. Although they never advise forcing a veteran to talk, Beard said they try to provide non-judgmental, gentle acceptance, a safe place for men and women to find peace of mind in their final days. He said the greatest gift anyone can give a veteran who wants to talk is a listening ear. Another, especially with Vietnam veterans, is a sincere apology for the way they were treated when they returned home and for Korean War veterans an acknowledgment of their forgotten service. One of the keys is forgiveness and healing, Beard said. Many times veterans are looking for forgiveness for themselves for killing; theyre angry or hold resentment for the enemy, the government, even God for allowing the world to be as it is. It can get harsh as they work through their memories and feelings. He said as veterans work through their demons from their war experiences, it often helps to have them think in terms of a peacefulness scale and help them think of ways to increase their sense of peace and serenity. We tell them, You cant change the past, but you can change forgiveness to the past, Beard said. Its not too late to heal our nation, one soldier at a time. For information about the Unique Grief of Our Veterans, call Jonathan Beard at 352-527-2020. able to obtain Laskorskis long-deserved military service medals to present to him. Aboard USS RankinAlthough his memory is not as sharp as it used to be, Laskorski remembers his ship, the USS Rankin. It was an attack cargo ship and Laskorski was part of the amphibious forces, a radioman. The ship, constructed in Wilmington, N.C., was launched Dec. 22, 1944, and commissioned Feb. 25, 1945, in Charleston, S.C. After that, we went on a shakedown cruise to make sure it didnt fall apart, he said. Eventually, they drove it eight hours through the Panama Canal, stopped in San Francisco then on to Hawaii to pick up a load of Howitzer ammunition for their destination: Okinawa. Most of his time was spent 75 feet in the air perched on a small platform with a pair of binoculars. On the way to Okinawa from Ulithi, on the radio we got the word that there were Japanese submarines in the area, but our radar and sonar couldnt pick them up, he said. A bigger danger was a tanker filled with gasoline traveling next to the Rankin. There was so much gasoline in the air they couldnt even scrape the deck. One spark could set everything on fire, even before they reached their destination. Off Japans shoreBy the time they arrived, the infamously ferocious battle that killed thousands was starting to quiet down. Laskorski said there were more than 100 kamikaze raids going on while they unloaded ammunition, although none hit his ship and he was deep inside its belly and not on deck. Still, sirens went off and orders barked: Man your battle stations! My assigned station was the after-ammunition shack, he said. I had to put on my headphones and a big, big helmet and listen to what was going on. He said they used to listen to Tokyo Rose on the radio. She played good music, he said, but she also talked in such a way as to discourage the Americans and the Allies. One morning she announced that my ship and a Dutch ship were sunk the night before, he said. I was eating my breakfast and I didnt feel too wet. But for other people who heard that, they didnt know if we were sunk or not. He said mail from home was rare. In two years, he received only one V-letter, a microfilmed letter that took up less space than regular mail, from his mom. You had to read them with a magnifying glass, he said. They got rid of my dog. After the war When Laskorski first joined the Navy, he earned $52 a month $78 with sea pay. He got out in 1946. They were in Oregon loading the ship with ammunition for a raid on Tokyo when he heard the news the war had ended. Everyone in town was celebrating in the street. They had to go back and unload the ammo. It was no longer needed. When his time in service was up, Laskorski took a train back to New York. After a series of various jobs, he spent 40 years with the New York Transit Authority. He and his second wife, Carmen, moved to Florida 10 years ago. Loyal veteran Concerning Memorial Day and patriotism in general, Laskorski said he doesnt see the same degree of observance as when he was younger, except shortly after 9/11. He still holds the U.S. military dear. Hes active with the VFW and American Legion. A photo of his ship hangs on his den wall. He still has his uniform, his military I.D. cards, the leathersheathed KA-BAR knife he was issued in boot camp. And now he has his medals: He is a loyal veteran, and Im so proud of him, Mrs. Laskorski said. He thinks highly of the military. It matured me, Laskorski said. I went in a kid and came out a man.

SALUTE Continued from Page A1 UPCOMING COVERAGE America has a new generation of veterans. More than 1.6 million troops are back from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and they are unlike any other group of veterans the nation has ever seen. More of them are Reserves and National Guard. More are women. They have different injuries than those who fought before them. And nearly half of them are seeking benefits for service-related disabilities. Claims are being filed faster than the government can process them. The average wait to get a new claim handled is about eight months. See Tuesdays Chronicle. HOSPICE Continued from Page A1 To further galvanize the housing market, Spencer, who recently returned from a Realtor rally hosted by the National Association of Realtors in Washington, D.C., said banks are speeding up the short-sale process. The Federal Housing Finance Agency, the conservator of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, imposed new federal rules, which start in June, requiringbanks to review and respond to short-sale offers within 30 days, with a final decision taking no more than 60 days. According to the National Association of Realtors, a short sale is a sales transaction in which the sellers mortgage lender agrees to accept a payoff of less than the balance due on the loan. While in Washington, Spencer said Realtors also called to extend the Mortgage Debt Relief Act of 2007, which offers relief to homeowners who would normally have to pay taxes on forgiven mortgage debt after facing foreclosure or a short sale. Extending it would keep people from being forced to file bankruptcy and endure further financial ruin. People, in one way or another, know someone who endured hardships caused by the rough economy. Nevertheless, Spencer said she is seeing bits of improvement peeking through the still-murky economic fabric. Baby boomers, retirees and snowbirds are buying many of the newer and older homes in the county, as well as condominiums. Vacant land sales are up, she said. Wayne Bardsley, president of the Citrus County Builders Association and owner of Quality Crafted Builders, said there are signs of revitalization for builders. While he hasnt built a new home in more than two years, another builder with the association, Gold Crest Homes, signed to do three homes, with a possible fourth in the works. Were seeing movement, he said. But its still important to be cautious, Bardsley said. For example, he believes builders shouldnt be running out to build spec homes. A spec home is a home a builder constructs with the faith someone will eventually purchase it. However, he said it is time to start dipping back into the waters in different ways. For example, Bardsley said he purchased a number of foreclosed homes and has had a 25 percent return on his investments. In addition, many builders had to learn to diversify and get into commercial construction, renovations and remodeling work. Because there is some progress in the market, Bardsley said he would be re-opening his office in Beverly Hills The tide is starting to change a little bit, he said. The survivors ... will benefit. There are also a number of first-time homebuyers combing the housing market because of the low interest rates and some real estate agents, who left the profession when the market crashed, are returning because they can make a living again. Additionally, there is an influx of new agents. Spencer said about a third of the homes in many neighborhoods in the county are vacant, but real estate agents are working hard to fill them.Its just going to take some time. Right now, were slow and steady, she said. Information from the News Service of Florida was used in this report.

Associated PressTropical Storm Beryl was wrecking some Memorial Day weekend plans Sunday, causing shoreline campers to pack up and head inland and leading to the cancellation of some events as the storm approached the southeastern U.S. Beryl was still well offshore, but officials in Georgia and Florida were bracing for drenching rains and driving winds. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said late Sunday afternoon Beryl would make landfall in several hours, and tropical storm conditions were already near the coasts of northeastern Florida and southeastern Georgia. Gusts are possible late Sunday and early Monday. Beryl is expected to bring 4 to 8 inches of rain, with some areas getting as much as 12 inches. Forecasters predict the storm surge and tide will cause some coastal flooding in northeastern Florida, Georgia and southern South Carolina. Campers at Cumberland Island, Fla., which is accessible only by boat, were told to leave by 4:45 p.m. The island has a number of undeveloped beaches and forests popular with campers. However, many people seemed determined to make the best of the soggy forecast. At Greyfield Inn, a 19thcentury mansion and the only private inn on Cumberland Island, the rooms were nearly full Sunday and everyone was planning to stay put through the wet Florida, Georgia officials brace for heavy rain, wind weather, said Dawn Drake, who answered the phone at the inns office on the Florida coast. In Jacksonville, Fla., Sundays jazz festival and Memorial Day ceremony were canceled. Workers were also out clearing tree limbs and debris that could be tossed about by the storms winds, which had reached 65 mph late Sunday afternoon. Winds had already knocked down tree limbs and power lines in parts of coastal Georgia, leaving hundreds without electricity. But business was booming at the Red Dog Surf Shop in New Smyrna Beach, Fla., where customers flocked to buy boards and wax in anticipation of the storms high waves. Officials all along the coast warned of rip currents, waves and high tides all of which can be dangerous but also tend to attract adventurous surfers. The waters had already become dangerous in South Carolina, where rescuers were searching for a missing swimmer. Associated Press Memorial Day vacationers pack Wrightsville Beach coastline as red flags fly above lifeguard stands warning swimmers of dangerous conditions and rip currents due to sub-tropical storm Beryl that was moving up the Eastern coast Sunday in Wilmington, N.C.

LOUIS A streaker who ran naked onto the field during a Cardinals game said he did so because he lost a bet. Collin Grundstrom, 22, of Jefferson City, was captured at Busch Stadium after shedding his clothes before the start of the seventh inning Thursday night. Officers retrieved his shorts from the stands and made him put them back on before leading him away. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Grundstrom is charged with violating two city ordinances being a spectator running on the playing field, and lewd and lascivious behavior. He was jailed overnight. The head of security at the stadium, Joe Walsh, said Grundstrom appeared to have been drinking. Quality Used Cars belonged to juniors JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. Would you buy a used car from these seniors? A sign propped under the raised hood promised Quality Used Cars. But the signs, the balloons and the streamers OK, toilet paper were in the sophomore and junior parking lot at Science Hill High School on Thursday. It was the Class of 2012 senior prank. The seniors may have undersold their idea to Principal Melanie Riden-Bacon. The Johnson City Press reported administrators approved the signs, but didnt hear anything about cars being decorated or the prank being done during school hours. She said the matter will be handled administratively, but said she wont stop participants from receiving their diplomas at the schools commencement exercise June 2. Senior Brennon Ricker said next years senior prank cant be as good. N.M. man stole chickens from kidsALBUQUERQUE, N.M. An Albuquerque man is facing charges after police said he stole chickens from Montessori schoolchildren. KOB-TV reports Harvey Aragon Jr. was arrested this week and was found hiding in a downtown Albuquerque apartment closet with smudges of chicken manure on his jeans. Police also said they found three chickens in the backseat of his Buick Skylark. Next door is the chicken coop belonging to Escuela Del Sol Montessori School. The arrest comes after a school caretaker called police about a possible break-in early Thursday morning. School director Friedge van Gil said the chickens are used to educate students about chicken care. Aragon is charged with commercial burglary and possession of stolen property more than $500. It was unclear if he had hired an attorney. From wire reports
W e are gathered here today to memorialize a man who revolutionized our lives. So what did Eugene J. Polley do? What was the nature of his great leap forward? Did he invent the PC? Did he invent the cellphone? Did he invent the Internet? No. Eugene J. Polley invented the wireless remote. You younguns wont remember this, but back in the day, when you wanted to change channels you had to actually get up from the couch and embark upon an arduous trip five, six, sometimes even seven feet across the living room where you would manually turn a dial until the desired channel sprang into view in all its black-and-white glory. While you were up, someone would always ask you to adjust the rabbit ears (ask your dad about the rabbit ears) to get rid of the snow (ask your dad about the snow). Then it was a long trudge back across the living room to the couch where your evil sister had taken your seat and wouldnt give it back no matter how nicely you threatened to drop her Chatty Cathy (ask your mother about Chatty Cathy) down the sewer, leaving you no choice but to shove her and then she punched you and then mom started yelling and didnt want to hear how it wasnt your fault, and next thing you know, youd been sent to bed early and you didnt even get to see Gilligans Island that night. Not that your humble correspondent is holding a grudge or anything. Anyway, Polley who died of pneumonia last Sunday, May 20, at 96 was an engineer for Zenith Electronics. In 1950, the company had released a remote control that attached to the set by a cord. One can only guess how many customers twisted how many ankles before Zenith decided this was not a great idea. Five years later, Polley fixed this. His remote, which looked like a glorified hair dryer, operated by sending light beams to receptors on the set. Now, the idea of a set that changed channels by responding to light had its own flaws. It was not uncommon to open the blinds and suddenly find Huntley and Brinkley on the screen where Cronkite had been a moment before (ask ... well, you know). Plus, the wireless remote was initially a luxury item. Only those with an extra $100 to spend could enjoy the convenience of sampling all their entertainment options (CBS, NBC, ABC) from the comfort of their chair. Kids whose parents were not made of money were stuck at the mercy of their evil sisters and had to figure out ingenious ways of changing channels without surrendering their prized seat on the couch. Little brothers were good for this. Eventually, of course, the wireless remote became ubiquitous. Polley (along with whomever had the bright idea to build a minifridge into a reclining chair) ushered us into a world where it became possible, depending on bladder strength, to watch hours and hours and hours and hours of television without ever leaving the couch to sit zombie-like, spouse and family ignored, switching channels, searching for that holy grail of modern existence, something good to watch, by sampling ones entertainment options (still CBS, NBC, and ABC and about 500 more). Convenience has long been the watchword of technological innovation, the promise implicit in every new dishwasher, ice maker, word processor and Roomba: it will make our lives easier. Eugene J. Polleys device did make our lives easier too much so, a diabetes specialist might say. Polley himself would have agreed. As he once groused to the Palm Beach Post, Everything has to be done remotely now or forget it. Nobody wants to get off their fat and flabby to control these electronic devices. As true as that is, one still cannot help but be grateful to Polley for his device. Granted, ones evil sister might disagree.

O PINION Page A8 MONDAY, MAY 28, 2012 Focus on development The Chronicle on May 23 and 24 quoted Commissioner Dennis Damato as saying the SBDC (Small Business Development Center) should take a more active role in retaining business rather than helping startups. It seems to me an organization whose title specifically says development is pledged to startup activity rather than retention activity. I would think the job of business retention belongs to the commissioners. The challenge is not to either develop new business or retain existing business, but to do both. Look around, commissioners. There are empty storefronts throughout the county. Commissioner Damato wants to argue with the unemployment numbers for Citrus County, as though something different would be done to reduce unemployment if the rate were 12 percent rather than 10 percent. I think spending $32,500 to fund the SBDC is a small price to pay to get people back to work given the way government spends money.Ken Yates Homosassa Budget bewilders A recent editorial by County Administrator Brad Thorpe raises more questions about the county budget rather than providing answers. He goes to great lengths to explain many controversial expenditures like the Ottawa purchase came from funds other than property taxes. He apparently fails to understand many of us do understand where the money comes from; that is not the issue. We are concerned that the expenditure of these funds is questionable and the dollars could be spent in other areas that would be more beneficial to all county residents. As far as Ottawa goes, one might think $2 million might have been better spent on the completion of County Road 491. Secondly, he explains all he has done to reduce the county budget, but fails to mention that all elected officials except the sheriff have also had to reduce their budgets. The county continues to refuse to implement a performance-based budget on all agencies that are recipients of county tax dollars. All agencies must be part of the budget-reduction process before there is any thought of curtailing county services. The county commissioners decided to relinquish their budget authority over fire services and animal control and give it to the sheriff. Historically, this sheriff does not even understand the basic concept of budget constraint. Now that the commissioners have given him these two additional agencies, they have lost more control. The easiest answer to sound budgeting is a performancebased budget and trained staff to review and monitor spending. The other requirement is a county commission willing to make the tough decisions on all agencies regardless of how much political pressure they can generate. Until that occurs, the commissioners are only acting as robotic signatories. Roger B. Krieger Beverly Hills Teachable momentWhat a pleasant Chronicle article on May 19 (Help for seahorses, Page A1) regarding a recent project by the fifthgraders of Homosassa Elementary School: Protecting what student Makenna Lenoir said are just little creatures that cannot talk for themselves seahorses! I was not aware that seahorses even existed in this area. Thanks to Makenna and her fellow classmates, we can be aware that they exist and need our protection. Makenna and her mother, Lori, met with a biologist at the Florida Aquarium in Tampa to talk about protection for seahorses. The class wanted to let the public know it should not handle seahorses, so a local bait shop owner, Gator MacRae, pitched in and raised enough money for professional signs to be made. This project is great and the grownups of Citrus County could learn from this little Homosassa Elementary class about how real community spirit works!

HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member SOLEMN HOLIDAY Reflect on true meaning of holiday T he strength of our nation, the enormity of its ideals and the totality of its freedoms came at a tremendous price, purchased in part with the lives of American servicemen and women. On Memorial Day, we as a nation and individuals attempt to understand more personally that sacrifice by honoring those Americans who died while defending our nation and its values. This holiday weekend, Americans have been celebrating the unofficial beginning of summer. Along the thousands of miles of coastline, our beaches are packed with families enjoying a recreational break from the daily grind. The smells from backyard barbecues fill the air of neighborhoods with the scent of hotdogs and hamburgers on the grill. Our lakes, rivers and gulf become floating playgrounds for boaters. Memorial Day is seen as a well-deserved holiday for everyone. But what is often forgotten is the real reason why we have a day off. More than an unofficial let summer begin three-day weekend, this national holiday has a history stretching as far back as the Civil War. This solemn holiday is a tribute to our nations fallen soldiers who have fought for the freedom we enjoy every day. Our pledge today and hereafter should be to not only appreciate the importance of this national holiday but to ensure our children and our grandchildren understand the message as well. There are many opportunities to participate in this memorial tribute: Place flags or flowers on graves of fallen heroes. Visit memorials. Participate in local commemoration services. Fly U.S. flags at half-staff until noon. From the early days of the American Revolution to the war on terrorism, the number of deaths in battle speaks to the sacrifices our soldiers and their families have made. The markers on their graves signal a duty that goes through generations to honor them in our thoughts, words and actions. Whether in public ceremony or in quiet reflection, celebrate this Memorial Day in remembrance and honor those who have given their lives in the protection of and service to our country. Wave that flag. Wave it wide and high. THE ISSUE: Memorial Day.OUR OPINION: Remember the sacrifices made for our country.

I remember that when President Bush went over there someplace where it turns out there were no weapons of mass destruction, they were never found, but there was a wonderful cache unearthed of millions of dollars in gold somewhere in the war-torn area. Our president said at the time, all that money could be used to help rebuild Iraq, but where is the money? What happened to it? Also, when the government used the funds that (were) supposed to be for Social Security, whatever they took out of there, they used it up didnt they? for something else, but they never returned it. So where is the money that they took away that they never returned? Thats all I have to say about that Social Security thing. All I know is they got my money. I worked until I was 72 years old.Thrift-store woesWhat do you do? Youve had an estate sale. You got rid of some good items. You made a few bucks. Now youve got to clean out the rest of the house. Do you call a roll-off Dumpster? Do you call a service to take it away? No, you call a thrift store and you expect them to take all your junk away. Guess what? Thats not what theyre in business for. Theyre in business to make money for their organization, not be taken advantage of. THE CHRONICLEinvites you to call Sound Off with your opinions about any subject.

I disagree with the editorial about the sheriffs office being better at child cases than DCF It used to be a trained social worker coming with an empathetic heart, and now its a sheriffs officer, a detective or a policeman, whatever you want to call it, or a sheriff. Why cant a social worker and a sheriff (go)? But I just think its wrong to take this out from under DCF and put it under the sheriff. I understand your opinion. I disagree.Deans decision Reference your editorial of Monday, May 21, concerning the decision to return child protective investigations to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office: I certainly agree with that. However, may I point out that Sen. Deans heart is in Citrus County, but he represents a large portion of this state. Now perhaps you have inside information that Sen. Dean has officially endorsed Winn Webb for sheriff. I think as editor, you have the right to endorse anyone for public office. But to state that Charlie Deans decision, as you quote, was obviously political, was not only wrong, but I think it was not really ethical. C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE
All the facts I read George Pratts letter of May 18 accusing the president of squandering taxpayer monies on two new expeditionary airlift squadrons. I then decided to check the facts he used and found them to be correct but very incomplete. He fails to note that the 305th and 306th Expeditionary Airlift Squadrons are part of Air Mobility Command under their 89th Airlift Wing and funded by the Department of Defense budget. If he had wanted to be fair, he could have mentioned that the mission of the 89th Airlift Wing is to transport our nations civilian and military leaders to locations around the globe ... during peace, crisis and conflict ... and to employ a wide range of current and emerging command, control and communications capabilities, to keep them connected and able to make and transmit timely decisions that further United States interests, as the Wing Fact Sheet states. He forgot to refer to the fact that the operations provide Air Reserve Component members with the opportunity to maintain proficiency by performing an important stateside mission while lessening the need for generating routine training/proficiency sorties. AMC officials said, We typically operate in this fashion during a presidential election season. History has shown an increased demand for airlift during presidential election years when the incumbent is running for a second term. Operating from locations close to the National Capital Region (NCR), rather than tasking aircraft from other units across the nation, saves fuel costs. Could this be during Republican administrations as well, do you think? Mr. Pratt certainly never mentions that federal regulations establish reimbursement requirements that political campaigns must abide by for travel related to campaign events. If Mr. Pratt has a problem with understanding where and why tax dollars are spent, he should fully research what is actually happening; if he disagrees, he is entitled to this opinion but not his own facts. When he makes the accusation that President Obama just thinks of himself as a king wanting to travel first-class, he places himself into a same ol same group that will manipulate any facts to match preexisting opinions. Roz Odell Lecanto Setting priorities Obama says (he supports) new cheap student-loan policies. Obama says he supports gay marriage. Obama says he will improve the life of everyone, if people will just give him another term. These kinds of promises are nothing new for anyone holding public office. There is no difference in what they say or promise. But the scary part is with all the serious things that need urgent attention in this country, these divertive tactics sway the less-thanintelligent voters. Yes, divertive is the word, as they work so well at getting the masses to look the other way as we slip deeper and deeper into our self-made grave! I cannot believe anyone with a real brain cannot see the very serious position the uncontrolled spending and borrowing has placed our future and us in. So what does the news report? What does the president address in his speeches? Hot-button and silly subjects that work so well to divert the masses from the real issues at hand! It has been said this tactic was the method used in all government collapses. And I think history will support that! The people gobble it up, and it well seems they will actually cast their votes based upon gay marriage or cheap student loans or another free government program! We are doomed to face what Greece is facing. And yes, the masses of Greece voted out fiscal control for another round of Socialist promises for all the great and free things that the government should provide. They are in for mass riots, and civil war is my prediction for their future and for ours if we do not start to turn this train around soon! Vote for the real issues that will perhaps keep the United States alive. Gay marriage or cheap student loans will never mean a thing when it all comes down in a heap. John Cassell Homosassa Man without a plan A few months ago, current Economic Development Council Executive Director John Si e fert was the guest speaker at the monthly Citrus County Council meeting. Mr. Sie fert was asked the question, What is your plan to assist and prevent many of the local businesses in the Homosassa area from closing when the new WalMart opens on (U.S.) 19? Mr. Sie fert said he was working on a plan to address this issue. Mr. Sie fert returned to address the CCCs May meeting. Mr. Sie fert was asked the same question and asked to present his plan. Mr. Sie fert dodged the question, and it was posed again, What is your plan, Mr. Seifert? Mr. Sie fert, visibly upset, shrugged his shoulders, and said, maybe they could go work at Wal-Mart. Those is attendance were stunned by his reply. Small businesses are the backbone of our American economic system. Apparently, Mr. Sie fert does not grasp the importance of maintaining the structure we have in place and is only concerned about bringing new businesses into the area. What message does this send to those prospective businesses wishing to come to Citrus County? Once you are here, you will be on your own, with no assistance from county government. Apparently, Citrus County is not becoming as business-friendly as it claims to be. Small business owners are a special breed. They invest their life savings to live the American dream of business ownership, working countless hours to make a better life for their families. It is a tragedy when a small business must close its doors. Fear not; if your small business fails, Mr. Sie fert will recommend you for a job at Wal-Mart. It is this type of mentality and shallow leadership that has plagued the EDC for decades. Hopefully, our county commissioners will see the light and begin moving Citrus forward. Perhaps Mr. Sie ferts next job should be at Wal-Mart.Bernie Leven Citrus Springs Potential sheriffs Although it was Law Enforcement Appreciation Week, and we do appreciate law enforcement, featuring Sheriff Dawsy with articles and big pictures on the front page every day is blatant campaigning with free publicity in an election year. There are three qualified Republican candidates running for the office of sheriff. They are Steve Burch, Hank Hemrick and Winn Webb. I recently had the opportunity to listen to two of these candidates, Steve Burch and Winn Webb. They have some very good ideas on how to spend (or not spend) our tax dollars. I hope all the voters of Citrus County will take the time and effort to meet and listen to these candidates. Its time for a change. Catherine Whynot Inverness Pharmaceutical boons It was with great interest and even greater consternation that I read the three-part series on Obamacare (a health care act passed by a partisan vote of Democrats in Congress). The articles demonized pharmaceutical companies, of which I was a part of for 35 years, and which I always considered to be part of our health care solution rather than part of the problem. The articles were so biased that I dont know where to begin. But permit me to point out two things. Pharmaceutical costs are now 10 percent of all health care spending, much less than hospital costs at 31 percent and physician costs at 18 percent. And not coincidentally, the life spans of Americans have been extended dramatically from what our ancestors experienced. Why? Have hospitals and physicians changed that much in the past 34 years? Probably not. Have advances in medications in the past 34 years been more responsible? Certainly! Think of the medications now used to treat diabetes, heart disease and cancers. The newer drugs have paid dividends to the American health care system that far exceed their costs. Costs of Obamacare have been debated ad nauseum. The Congressional Budget Office had scored it early on as being revenueneutral. Since then, its cost estimates have grown. While the CBO is neutral, that does not mean it is now correct, nor rarely has been. Its estimates of Social Security funding, Medicare and Medicaid have been abysmal at best. The only program recently to come in at a lower cost than CBO projected was Part D because it had a caveat called the donut hole that controlled prices and prevented the explosion of costs in the pharmaceutical program. Its cost projections of Obamacare will certainly increase and reality will dictate that you cannot add millions to health care rolls and cover all patients with pre-existing conditions and have this program be revenueneutral on a national level. There is no such thing as a free lunch in health care!

Case building in Patz murderNEW YORK For prosecutors, the work is just beginning after the astonishing arrest last week of a man who police said confessed to strangling a 6-year-old New York City boy 33 years ago in one of the nations most bewildering missing childrens cases. Pedro Hernandez, 51, was charged with second-degree murder in the 1979 death of Etan Patz, based largely on a signed confession he gave after he spoke voluntarily to detectives for hours, according to police. But to convince a jury beyond a reasonable doubt, prosecutors need more than the confession, even though corroboration isnt necessarily required by law, legal experts said. Piecing together that supporting evidence may be difficult: Theres no body and no physical evidence, plus a history of famous false confessions in other high-profile cases. We live in a day of CSI, fingerprinting, DNA, hand samples, and footprints and treads on bottoms of shoes and boots. Theres going to be none of that here, and thats tough, said Arthur Aidala, a former prosecutor who is now a criminal defense attorney. Youre essentially relying on this guys own words, and whether hes credible. Airborn Associated Press An unidentified freestyle motocross rider performs Sunday during celebrations marking the 309th anniversary of the city in St. Petersburg, Russia, with a statue of Russian Tsar Nicolas I and the St. Isaaks Cathedral in the background. Afghan airstrike deaths disputed KABUL, Afghanistan The U.S.-led coalition on Sunday disputed reports that eight civilians, including children, were killed in a NATO airstrike in a remote part of eastern Afghanistan. Afghan officials said an airstrike Saturday night killed eight members of a family, but a senior NATO official said so far, there is no evidence of any civilian casualties. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to disclose the information. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A10 MONDAY, MAY 28, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Gay marriage polls not reflected in votes Associated PressNEW YORK Poll after poll shows public support for same-sex marriage steadily increasing, to the point where its now a majority viewpoint. Yet in all 32 states where gay marriage has been on the ballot, voters have rejected it. Its possible the streak could end in November, when Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington state are likely to have closely contested gay marriage measures on their ballots. For now, however, there remains a gap between the national polling results and the way states have voted. Its a paradox with multiple explanations, from political geography to the likelihood some conflicted voters tell pollsters one thing and then vote differently. Its not that people are lying. Its an intensely emotional issue, said Amy Simon, a pollster based in Oakland, Calif. People can report to you how they feel at the moment theyre answering the polls, but they can change their mind. California experienced that phenomenon in November 2008, when voters, by a 52-48 margin, approved a ban on same-sex marriage in the state constitution. A statewide Field Poll in September indicated Proposition 8 would lose decisively; an updated poll a week before the vote still showed it trailing by 5 percentage points. California is an unusual case. Its one of a few reliably Democratic states that have had a statewide vote rebuffing same-sex marriage. The vast majority of the referendums have been in more conservative states, which have a greater predilection for using ballot measures to set social policy. The 32 states that have rejected gay marriage at the polls make up more than 60 percent of the U.S. population. Voters in liberal states such as Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York, where gay marriage was legalized by judges or legislators, might vote to affirm those decisions but havent had the opportunity. Most of the states that voted against gay marriage did so between 2004 and 2008. Since then, only Maine in 2009 and North Carolina on May 8 have rebuffed same-sex marriage in referendums, while legislatures in Washington state, Maryland, New Jersey, Hawaii, New York, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Illinois and Delaware have voted for same-sex marriage or civil unions. In all, there are now six states with legal same-sex marriage and nine more granting gay and lesbian couples broad marriagestyle rights via civil unions or domestic partnerships. Together, those 15 states account for 35 percent of the U.S. population. Over the past year, theres been a stream of major national polls indicating a majority of people support same-sex marriage. According to a Washington PostABC News poll released Wednesday, 53 percent of those questioned say gay marriage should be legal, a new high for the poll, while 39 percent, a new low, say it should be illegal. Associated Press Ali Vanderzanden, political director for Equality Maine, hugs a friend before a news conference Jan. 26 at the State House in Augusta, Maine. Dozens of boxes in the background contain more than 105,000 signatures collected by supporters of gay marriage to force a second referendum on the issue. Fueling obsession Associated PressNEW YORK Its Memorial Day and our national obsession with the price of gasoline is in focus once again. Well spend a little less at the pump than a few weeks ago, but that wont stop us from muttering to ourselves, griping to friends and pointing fingers in many directions. Our rants about gasoline and the oil industry may not always be based on facts, but one thing is undeniable: Americans are obsessed with the price of gasoline. More than any other good or service we buy. In the language of economists, the price of gasoline is salient. That means it sticks in our brains. Heres why: Were reminded of the price every time we pass a gas station and see those huge, numbered signs. We buy gas every week, unlike bills we pay monthly or a couple times a year. Milk is $4 a gallon, but we buy only one. When we fill up with gas, we spend $50 or more. And the biggest frustration, which comes into focus as the numbers spin ever higher at the pump: There is no alternative. The oil companies have cornered the market and they are squeezing us for everything we have, said Bob Simpson, 62, of Lodi, N.J., who pays close to $60 to fill up his Ford Escape. Cheap gas makes the wide open spaces of America seem full of possibility and adventure. When its expensive, we think twice before setting out. Driving is a symbol of freedom in the U.S., said Shanjun Li, an economist who studies consumer behavior at Cornell Universitys Dyson School of Applied Economics. At a nationwide average Friday of $3.67 per gallon, gasoline is far cheaper in the U.S. than much of the rest of the world, thanks to relatively low taxes. In Japan, gas costs more than $7 a gallon; in Britain, nearly $9. Yet Americans consider cheap gas a birthright, so its a shock when factors beyond our control drive up the price. People understand why a big TV costs more than a small one, or why tickets to a playoff game are more expensive than a regular season game. But its harder to appreciate why a local gas station charges more because of high oil demand in China or a remark by an official in Iran. It must be, we reason, that someone is taking advantage of us. Its not the case, of course: The market for oil and gasoline is global, so rising demand anywhere can push up prices everywhere. And world oil demand is forecast to rise to a record this year. Also, oil and gasoline are priced on financial exchanges, not by oil companies. Investors can buy oil and gasoline futures contracts and push up prices if they fear supplies could be disrupted in the future. But they also can bet prices will go down. When President Barack Obama promised stricter oversight of oil markets and a crackdown on speculators last month, he stopped short of saying market manipulation was responsible for the current high prices. Driving season begins, as does griping about gas prices Associated Press Gasoline prices greet motorists April 15 at the Midway Plaza on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Bedford, Pa. With the arrival of the long Memorial Day weekend, our obsession with the price of gasoline is in focus again. Millions in global aid for Iraq still sits unspent Associated PressBAQOUBA, Iraq Millions of dollars in international aid to build and repair Iraqs dilapidated schools have for years gone unspent. Now, Iraqs government risks losing the funding as the World Bank weighs whether some of it would be better used elsewhere. The spending delays have left buildings like the scruffy al-Min elementary school in the former insurgent stronghold of Baqouba, 35 miles northeast of Baghdad, in limbo. The education aid is a slice of $1.3 billion in grants and loans the World Bank and its donor nations have given Iraq since 2004 to fund efforts initially to help rebuild the country after the 2003 U.S.-led invasion ousted Saddam Hussein. More than one-third of the overall assistance has yet to be spent and the World Bank must decide soon whether to extend grant deadlines to help schools. Associated PressBEIRUT Syria on Sunday strongly denied allegations that its forces killed scores of people including women and children in one of the deadliest days of the countrys uprising, but the U.N. Security Council, after an emergency session condemned government forces for shelling residential areas. The killing of more than 100 people in the westcentral area of Houla on Friday brought widespread international criticism of the regime of President Bashar Assad, although differences emerged from world powers over whether his forces were exclusively to blame. The Security Council issued a press statement Sunday that condemned in the strongest possible terms the killings in Houla. It blamed Syrian forces for artillery and tank shelling of residential areas. It also condemned the killings of civilians by shooting at close range and by severe physical abuse, but avoided saying who was responsible for these attacks. The councils statement said the outrageous use of force against civilians violated international law and Syrian government commitments under previous U.N. resolutions to stop all violence, including the use of heavy weapons in populated areas. It said those responsible for acts of violence must be held accountable, and asked the U.N. observer mission in Syria and Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to investigate the attacks and report back to the council. Britain and France had proposed issuing a statement condemning the attack on civilians and pointing the finger at the Syrian government for Fridays massacre. But Russia called for an emergency council meeting, saying it first wanted a briefing by Gen. Robert Mood, the head of the unarmed U.N. observer mission. The massacre in Houla on Friday cast fresh doubts on the ability of an international peace plan put forward by U.N.-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan to end Syrias 14-month-old crisis. The brutality of the killings became clear in amateur videos posted online, showing scores of bodies, many of them young children, in neat rows and covered with blood and deep wounds. Mood told the Security Council that U.N. observers at the scene now estimate 108 people were killed in Houla, U.N. peacekeeping chief Herve Ladsous told reporters outside the council chamber. The U.N. counted 49 children and 34 women among the dead.

Webber is the sixth different driver to win in the opening six races of the season, a first for the series. Drivers favored a onestop tire strategy on the most difficult track for overtaking. Webber, in effect, needed to make it to the first corner in front and then negotiate a clean pit stop. The 35-year-old Australian did just that to stay ahead of Nico Rosberg and Alonso for his eighth career win. It was his second victory in three years at Monaco for Red Bull, which has won the last three at this track from the pole position. Alonso, who is bidding for his third F1 title, headed into the race tied with twotime defending champion Sebastian Vettel with 61 points. He now leads Vettel and Webber by three points.Phillies Halladay leaves with sore shoulder ST. LOUIS Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay left his start against the St. Louis Cardinals after two innings as a precaution due to right shoulder soreness, matching the second-shortest outing of his career. A team spokesman Sunday said Halladay, a twotime Cy Young winner who was runner-up last year, would be re-evaluated in the next few days. It was 90 degrees at game time, which may have been a contributing factor. Halladay left a start after four innings in Chicago last summer because he was having trouble dealing with the heat. Orioles Jones inks six-year, $85.5M contract BALTIMORE Adam Jones signed a six-year, $85.5 million contract with the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, ensuring that the 26-year-old center fielder will stay with the team through 2018.

Detroit Lions Fairley arrested on DUI chargeTILLMANS CORNER Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley was arrested in Alabama on charges of driving under the influence and attempting to elude police, his second arrest in his home state in two months. Alabama state troopers said the 24-year-old passed a state trooper early Sunday morning at 100 mph in his Cadillac Escalade in unincorporated Mobile County. After initially refusing to stop for the troopers emergency lights and siren, Fairley pulled over and seemed impaired. He was arrested without incident. Fairly was also cited for reckless driving, no proof of insurance and open container. Fairley also was arrested April 3 in Mobile on a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge. Fairley was a standout at Auburn University and the Lions first-round draft pick.From wire reports Dario Franchitti waves to fans with his wife, actress Ashley Judd, center, and Susie Wheldon on Sunday after winning the Indianapolis 500.

Associated PressBOSTON Sean Rodriguez hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning off Boston closer Alfredo Aceves, and the Tampa Bay Rays rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Red Sox on Sunday afternoon, a day after losing in the final inning. Will Rhymes went 3 for 3 with three singles and an RBI for the Rays, who lost Saturday night on a pinch-hit, two-run homer by Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the ninth off closer Fernando Rodney. Clay Buchholz had his best start of the season and Adrian Gonzalez hit a three-run homer for Boston, which was about to move above .500 for the first time this season until Rodriguez hit a drive off Aceves (0-2) over the Green Monster with one out and one on. Boston lost for just the fifth time in 16 games, but dropped two of three in the weekend series that was highlighted by a benchesclearing incident on Friday. Jake McGee (2-1) retired Gonzalez, the only batter he faced, on a grounder to short to end the eighth with the bases loaded to earn the win. Rodney pitched the ninth for his 16th save. Its the latest the Red Sox (2324) havent been over .500 since late August of 1996. Buchholz, who entered with a major league-high 7.84 ERA, scattered eight hits and allowed two runs over seven innings, walking one and striking out six in matching his season high with 111 pitches. The Red Sox had given Buchholz a major league-best 8.76 runs in his starts, but they were unable to put together any sustained offense against Jeremy Hellickson until rallying in the seventh. Trailing 2-0, David Ortiz drew a leadoff walk and Kevin Youkilis singled before Gonzalez lofted a fly ball down the leftfield line that hooked into the first row of Green Monster seats just inside the pole.

But this was not about Franchitti: It was all for Dan Wheldon. Franchitti won a wheel-towheel, last-lap battle Sunday with Takuma Sato, their tires briefly touching to send Sato spinning hard into the wall. Franchitti sailed away to the checkered flag, with Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Scott Dixon crossing the finish line right behind the Scotsman. Third went to Tony Kanaan, making it a podium sweep for Wheldons three closest friends in the IndyCar series. Wheldon, the defending race winner and a two-time champ, was killed in the October season finale, and the entire day was in honor of D-dub, their fallen friend. Everybody up there was a friend of Dans, and that about sums it up. Everybody loved him, said Franchitti as bagpipes played over the public address system. What a race! What a race! Franchitti said. I think D-dub would be proud of that one. Kanaan, who used a bold move on a late restart to dart from fifth to first, couldnt hold off Franchitti and Dixon on the last restart. It left him winless in 11 career attempts at Indy, but he was OK with the final result. The glory goes to Dario Franchitti, but the day belongs to Dan Wheldon See INDY / Page B4 Associated Press Kasey Kahne drives Sunday during the NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 in Concord, N.C.

The Rays broke up a scoreless game with a run in the fourth. Matt Joyce had a one-out double and advanced on the play when right fielder Gonzalezs throw missed the cutoff, hitting off the top of Dustin Pedroias lunging attempt in short right and rolling about 20 feet away. Zobrist then bounced to first, scoring Joyce. The benches cleared Friday when Boston reliever Franklin Morales threw behind Luke Scott before hitting him in the right leg. Rhymes two-out RBI single made it 2-0 in the seventh after Rodriguez reached on a double, barely beating Pedroias tag with a headfirst slide. Hellickson, who had his worst start of the season against the Red Sox in Fenway on April 14, allowed just four singles in the first six innings and only one runner to second base. That came when Scott Podsednik reached with one out in the third and advanced on a ground out, but Pedroia ended the inning with a fly out. Hellickson gave up five runs in five innings in Bostons second home game of the season in April. B.J. Upton extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a single. Buchholz had double plays turned behind him to end the fifth and sixth. RAYSContinued from Page B1

Johnson was assessed a two-stroke penalty for failing to replace his ball to its original position after marking it on the 18th hole. That left him with a 2-over 72 and a one-stroke victory. Im going to focus on the positives, because I hit a really solid putt and its a good thing I made it, Johnson said. No harm, no foul. It was my fault. Johnson moved his original ball mark out of the line of Dufners putt on the 18th green, but forgot to move it back before his final 5-foot putt. Even with the penalty assessed before signing his scorecard, Johnsons 12under 268 total was enough to edge Dufner, who closed with a 74. Tommy Gainey was a distant third at 7 under after a 67. In what was essentially a match-play final round for the winners plaid jacket, Johnson took command at the 414-yard 15th hole. Dufners approach hit the left side of that green then rolled into a ditch, leading to a triple bogey that put him four strokes back after Johnsons par. It was the eighth PGA Tour victory for Johnson, who won $1,152,000. The 2007 Masters champions record streak of 15 consecutive under-par rounds at Colonial ended. Dufners only two PGA Tour victories came in the last four weeks, a stretch when he also got married. After winning at the Byron Nelson Championship, he was trying to match Ben Hogan, his hero, as the only players to win both PGA Tour events in the DallasFort Worth area in the same year. Hogan did it in 1946, when the tournaments werent played consecutively. Pretty good run, today obviously a little disappointing to play that poorly and not kind of a chance there at the end, said Dufner, insisting fatigue didnt come into play. Dufner and Johnson were tied at 14 under going to the back nine after Dufners double bogey at the 386-yard par 4 ninth hole, where his approach from 103 yards hit just short of the green and rolled back into the water. In a rare and still slight show of frustration, Dufner slapped his hands together when the ball came up short before his first double bogey in 147 holes. It looked as if Johnson was the one in trouble at the ninth, when his drive settled in the rough. He had an awkward stance, with one foot in the bunker the ball just missed, when he hit his approach to 15 feet. And he almost made birdie, but the putt lipped the cup and rolled away. After both started with disappointing pars at the easiest hole on the course, the opening par 5, there was a two-stroke swing at the 382-yard second hole that cost Dufner his lead. Dufner drove into a fairway bunker on the left side, then three-putted from 28 feet for his first bogey on any of the first eight holes all week. Johnson made a 28-foot birdie putt to go in front by a stroke. Johnson trailed by two strokes when his tee shot at the 188-yard eighth was way left before his short pitch shot missed the green and he bogeyed. Associated Press Zach Johnson hits out of the sand Sunday on the 18th hole during the final round of the PGA Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas. Associated Press Englands Luke Donald poses with the trophy Sunday after winning the PGA Championship at the Wentworth Club, Virginia Water, England. Associated PressVIRGINIA WATER, England Luke Donald replaced Rory McIlroy at No. 1 in the rankings for the third time in 10 weeks by winning his second straight BMW PGA Championship. It was also a victory that lifted his hopes of finally capturing a major at the U.S. Open next month. Displaying his trademark consistency with his driver and putter, Donald won the biggest event on the European tour by four strokes. He shot a 4-under 68 at Wentworth on Sunday for his fourth straight round under 70, leaving him at 15 under. This was Donalds second victory of the year following the one at the Transitions Championship in March. He overtook McIlroy at the same course 12 months ago when he assured himself a No. 1 ranking after a playoff win over Lee Westwood. Theres something sweet about going 12 months and still being No. 1, Donald said. Its an indication that Im doing the right things. Donald held a two-shot lead over Justin Rose when he began his final round in sunny conditions and said he felt tense in the opening stretch of holes, culminating in a bogey 6 on the long fourth hole. A birdie for Rose at the same hole drew the players even at 10 under. With Peter Lawrie and Paul Lawrie within two shots at that stage, a tight finish seemed likely. Donald made sure that didnt happen. He rediscovered his putting touch to birdie four of the next seven holes, including a 30-footer on No. 10 that drew cries of Luuuuke from the gallery and left Rose three shots behind. Donald had the luxury of strolling down No. 18 with a four-shot cushion. He suddenly had the aura of the best player in the world. Not only did a sixth victory in 15 months earn Donald $950,000, it also gave him a big boost before the U.S. Open in San Francisco. Associated PressBENTON HARBOR, Mich. Roger Chapman won the Senior PGA Championship, holding on for a two-stroke victory after leadingcomfortably throughout the final round Sunday. Chapman led by five after 54 holes and was never really threatened Sunday. His closing 1-over 72 was his worst score of the tournament but it was enough to give the Englishman a win at the major championship. Chapman, who had never won on the Champions Tour, finished at 13 under. He bogeyed three of the last five holes but had enough of a cushion that it didnt matter. John Cook was at 11 under after a 69. Hale Irwin shot 68 to finish another stroke back. Kenny Perry had a tournament-record 62 at Harbor Shores to finish five shots behind in ninth place. Before this week, the only real highlight of Chapmans pro career was a win in Brazil at a European Tour event in 2000. The European Senior Tour has held only one tournament this year, so Chapman hadnt played many competitive rounds before coming to Harbor Shores. He became the first player since Hale Irwin in 2004 to win the Senior PGA Championship after holding at least a share of the lead following each round. Chapmans thirdround 64 helped him pull away, and he extended his lead on the front nine Sunday. Chapman birdied Nos. 4 and 6, and after another birdie on the par-4 seventh, he led by nine strokes. Cook made birdies on Nos. 9, 13 and 14, and trailed by only four after Chapman bogeyed the par-4 14th. But Cook missed a birdie putt at No. 15, a par 5 that was the easiest hole on the course. On an emotional walk to the 18th green, Chapman took his hat off to acknowledge the crowd, then gathered himself and calmly finished with a bogey to win by two. Chapman wins Senior PGA by 2 strokes Associated PressPARIS Easy to understand why Andy Roddick never enjoyed playing on red clay all that much. First and foremost, the footing is tricky as can be. The soft courts take his booming serves and forehands down a notch, too. Put simply, his game is built for hard or grass courts. As if that werent enough, he arrived at this French Open having played only 16 matches in a season interrupted by injuries to his right hamstring and right ankle. If Roddick was tempted to sit out Roland Garros altogether or to use his health or rust as an excuse for playing poorly he did not. The 26thseeded American, once ranked No. 1 and once a Grand Slam champion, gave it a shot and came up short Sunday, exiting in a major tournaments opening round for the first time since 2007, and at the same venue. His 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 loss to 88thranked Nicolas Mahut at the French Open dropped Roddicks record to 7-10 this season, 0-4 on clay. Of the seven previous major title winners in action on Day 1, only Roddick was beaten. Like Roddick, and for much the same reasons, Williams is not nearly as comfortable on clay as faster surfaces. Shes also dealing with the difficult process of learning to live with Sjogrens syndrome, a condition that can cause fatigue and joint pain. But the 31-year-old Williams, a seven-time major champion, overcame a slow start Sunday to beat 19-year-old Paula Ormaechea of Argentina 4-6, 6-1, 6-3. The other past major champions who won Sunday were Juan Martin del Potro, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Sam Stosur, Ana Ivanovic and Svetlana Kuznetsova. Mondays schedule includes Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Victoria Azarenka and Li Na. Mahut hit more aces than Roddick, 13-8, and broke him seven times. Roddick only once made it as far as the fourth round in 10 trips to Roland Garros, in 2009. Hes lost in the first round five times now. And theres a reason the guy never saw success at the French Open the way he did at the U.S. Open (champion), Wimbledon (runner-up three times) or Australian Open (semifinalist four times). I just feel like I get exposed too easily out here. I feel like Im not set on most shots. If youre not set, its tough to get much of a flow going. When you dont have much of a flow going, it lends itself to sporadic play. It all adds up, Roddick said.

Danny, wherever he is right now, I think hes extremely happy. His three best friends in the top three. Wheldons wife, Susie, went to Victory Lane to congratulate Franchitti, who hid his tears of joy behind a pair of white sunglasses worn in tribute because they were Wheldons preference. She then sat next to Franchittis wife, actress Ashley Judd, in the backseat of the convertible the same seat she had a year ago for Wheldons win for the victory lap around the 2.5-mile oval. The entire day was a tribute to Wheldon, beginning with car owner Bryan Herta driving a single parade lap around Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the car Wheldon drove to victory last year. Fans were given white sunglasses to wear on laps 26 and 98, marking the car numbers Wheldon used in his two wins. It was Susie Wheldons first trip to any race track since her husbands Oct. 16 death, and she watched from Dixons pit stand with his wife, Emma. It was the Dixons who relocated after the accident to St. Petersburg, Fla., to provide comfort and support for Susie and her two sons in the months after the accident. So it was fitting on this hot day the temperature hit 91 degrees, just one shy of the Indy 500 record that one of the most competitive races in history ended with a frantic push from Wheldons friends. Ten drivers swapped the lead 35 times, shattering the record of 29 in the 1960 race won by Jim Rathmann. Until the last lap, when Sato made his move for the win, the race was close but uneventful. The only multi-car accident came when a spin by Mike Conway collected Will Power, who came into the race as the series points leader and winner of the past three races this season. It was a somewhat frightening accident as Conway, who broke his front wing when he hit one of his crew members on pit road, hit the outside wall and his car tilted on its side before coming to rest. And Helio Castroneves had to deftly maneuver past a bouncing tire that still grazed one of his own wheels. Besides that, though, the race was slowed by just eight cautions including the one on the last lap for 39 of the 200 laps. Marco Andretti, who went into Sunday believing the race is mine to lose, was strong at the start, but a series of adjustments were not to his liking and he unraveled on his team radio before spinning to bring out the final caution with 13 laps remaining. Franchitti and Dixon battled back and forth in the final third of the race, with Sato consistently in the mix. Then came Kanaan, from nowhere it seemed, but he was unable to hang on to the lead on the restart after Marco Andrettis crash brought out the yellow with 13 laps to go. Andretti said the wreck definitely rang my bell. Everyone thought the race would go to a Chevrolet driver for either Andretti Autosport or Penske Racing, which won the first four races of the season and swept the front two rows in qualifying. But in the end, it was three Hondas fighting for their first win of the season. After the restart with six laps remaining, Franchitti pulled past Dixon for the final time. Sato went with him and slid in front of Dixon to split the Ganassi teammates. The Japanese then went for the lead going into the first turn, pulling even with Franchitti. But he went in too low, the cars touched, and the crash sent him into the outside wall. It looks like he didnt give me enough room to go there, Sato said. I was a little below the white line. I had nowhere to go. Satos car barely missed Franchitti, who coasted across the line under a yellow caution flag to become the 10th driver to win at least three Indy 500s. All three of Franchittis wins have ended under caution. It snaps a disappointing start to the season for Franchitti, who has won the last three championships but seemed stumped by IndyCars new car through the first four races. In breaking out Sunday for his 31st victory, hes now in a tie with Sebastien Bourdais and Paul Tracy on the all-time wins list. One more win will move Franchitti into seventh place in the record books. The only drivers ahead of him? The giants of openwheel racing: three Unsers, two Andrettis and A.J. Foyt, the all-time wins leader. INDY Continued from Page B1 Associated Press Oklahoma City Thunder guard James Harden shoots over San Antonio Spurs small forward Kawhi Leonard on Sunday during the first half of Game 1 of the Western Conference Final playoff series in San Antonio. when he left with his gas can still engaged, dragging his crew member along. NASCAR docked him with a stop-and-go penalty to end his chances. Danica Patrick, the first woman to drive in the race since Janet Guthrie in 1976, was five laps down in 30th. Still, it was her best finish in three career Sprint Cup races. Car owner Chip Ganassi flew to Charlotte after celebrating Dario Franchittis win at the Indianapolis 500 earlier Sunday. Ganassi, part of Earnhardt Ganassi Racing, had hoped to double up with drivers Jamie McMurray and Juan Pablo Montoya. But 250 laps in, McMurray was a lap down and Montoya two behind after needing an extra pit stop to tighten a loose wheel. The minute I walked into the garage, people were high-fiving me, Ganassi said. Right now, weve got to get our cars up the grid. It didnt happen as Montoya finished two laps down in 20th and McMurray right behind in 21st. For much of this race, it looked as if Biffle wouldnt be caught. He led 204 laps to dominate early and was clearly best as the race began in the hot, bright sunshine. Once the night cooled off the track, Biffle was no match for Kahne. Kaseys car was just better at night, Biffle said. An early crash took Patrick out of contention in the season-opening Daytona 500 and she finished 38th. Patrick returned to Sprint Cup two weeks ago at treacherous Darlington Raceway and lasted throughout at the track considered Too Tough to Tame and crossed the line in 31st. Patricks goals this week were simply to be running at the end and that she was. Starting 40th after a poor qualifying effort, Patrick quickly fell top laps down. But she held on throughout the long, long night. Patrick also kept her humor. When she was cautioned by her team to keep hydrating, Patrick cracked, Copy that. Every time you dont get an answer to a question, thats what Im doing. Patricks next Sprint Cup race will be at Bristol Motor Speedway on Aug. 25. Earnhardt had hoped to avenge last years heartbreaking loss when he ran out of fuel 700 feet from the finish line while leading. Earnhardt came as close to second and was drag-racing Hamlin for the lead on the final restart before as the large crowd at Charlotte Motor Speedway howled. Earnhardt, too, couldnt keep up with his teammate and his winless drought grew to 141 races. NASCARs king, career victory leader Richard Petty, had both his entries starting 1-2. But polesitter Aric Almirola quickly fell back and finished 16th. Marcos Ambrose, who started second, broke a wheel hub and ended up 32nd.

Obeying orders snarled by coach Gregg Popovich in a fourth-quarter timeout to play nasty, the Spurs erased a ninepoint deficit that stunned the Thunder, who had looked on their way to finally kicking the perception that theyre the underdog. Kevin Durant led the Thunder with 27 points. Russell Westbrook had 17. The 2001 Lakers are the only other team to carry a winning streak this long in the playoffs and they did so on their way to a championship. Game 2 is Tuesday night.
Memorial Day concert canceled WASHINGTON The National Memorial Day Concert was been canceled due to a line of thunderstorms that moved into the District of Columbia on Sunday night. About halfway into the concert, an annual event on the National Mall, host Gary Sinise told the audience there was a severe weather warning and advised concertgoers to leave and seek shelter. Mike Musher of the National Weather Service said the thunderstorms developed over Pennsylvania as part of the weather system that created record high temperatures in the Midwest on Sunday. The Memorial Day concert, broadcast by PBS, features songs from pop and country performers, patriotic music from military bands and stories of heroic acts by U.S. troops. Country singer Trace Adkins and rock band Daughtry had already performed before the plug was pulled Sunday. De Niro talks to Bates grads LEWISTON, Maine As he received an honorary doctorate Sunday, Oscarwinning actor Robert De Niro told Bates College graduates that despite his own lack of formal education, he made out OK. During a 15-minute address that was by turns sincere and irreverent, De Niro drew a steady stream of laughter from the 463 graduating seniors and more than 5,000 onlookers at the private, liberal arts colleges campus. De Niro, who quit high school to pursue an acting career, was one of three high-profile guests who received honorary degrees at the Bates commencement. PBS Newshour senior corres pondent Gwen Ifill and Princeton University molecular biologist Bonnie Bassler also were honored. But it was De Niro who stole the show. In many ways, leaving school when I did it was an advantage. I saved nearly $6,000 by not having to pay tuition and expenses for four years of education, he said. I feel a little foolish, because if I had waited until now not to go to college, I could have saved around a quarter of a million. Looking back, he said, it worked out just fine. I saved the money, and I got the degree. Associated PressLOS ANGELES HBOs Hemingway & Gellhorn is a vibrantly smart, sensual biopic due to its game stars, Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman, and in larger portion to filmmaker Philip Kaufman. Kaufman, the big-screen master behind The Unbearable Lightness of Being and The Right Stuff, is making his TV debut at 9 p.m. Monday with an account of the ill-fated romance of Ernest Hemingway and journalist Martha Gellhorn during the tumultuous 1930s and s. The films embrace of political, artistic and sexual passion is the result of Kaufmans own ardor especially for women, according to Kidman. I love him. I love that he loves women, and he really loves women, she said. He was the one (who) brought the sexuality to the piece. ... Hes made great movies, and for him to want to tell this love story thats his forte. Gellhorn, a leggy blonde who was as gifted and tough as she was beautiful, proved more than a match for the charismatic, driven novelist celebrated for works including The Sun Also Rises and For Whom the Bell Tolls. (Hes also mocked in some quarters for his he-man persona, the most recent jabs coming from Woody Allens Midnight in Paris.) Hemingway & Gellhorn depicts her transformation into a renowned and empathetic war correspondent under Hemingways tutelage, while he gradually descends into alcoholism and inertia that he blames in part on her growing independence. If they had lived together in a slightly different time, they might have stayed together, Kaufman said, perhaps wishfully. They might have found a way if thered been more breathing room. Setting its oversized characters on a vast historical stage that includes the Spanish Civil War and World War II, the film follows them from their sparks-fly first meeting in a Key West, Fla., bar to Gellhorns decision to choose her career over him and their marriage. In between, the pair dodge bombs and bullets that at times serve as a dangerous backdrop for their sexual encounters (played with gusto, and a fair amount of nudity, by the films stars). Its about storytelling, what was necessary to show the heat that existed between them and especially in the heat of war, said Kaufman. The veteran writer-director, now 75, knows how to make the screen smolder, bare skin or not, and how to portray strong women, including astronauts wives (in The Right Stuff) and writers like Gellhorn and Anais Nin (in his film Henry & June). Kaufmans age doesnt come into it, Owen said. His spirit is about 25. He knows how to put together a story. Its a big challenge to do a relationship, travel to all these places, and keep them in front of the epic backdrops of the Spanish Civil War, China, and do it effortlessly and fluidly, Owen said. The project also owes a debt to James Gandolfini (The Sopranos), who pulled out his checkbook to provide script development money, said Alexandra Ryan, one of the films executive producers. Making a grand drama on a TV budget (albeit a generous HBO one) required artful use of the San Francisco area as stand-in for Europe and elsewhere. Working with longtime collaborators including editor Walter Murch and production designer Geoffrey Kirkland, Kaufman also employed green screen technology to insert actors into period footage, adding further theatrical sweep. The Cannes Film Festival recognized the achievement, creating a rare berth this week for a TV movie. Its a great honor, said Kaufman, who first showed a film at the French festival nearly 50 years ago. Owen, who packed on weight to play Hemingway, was Kaufmans pick for the hypermasculine writer both because of the actors talent and his testosterone count. He definitely had it, Kaufman said. The British-born Owen was a bit wary of playing a famed American, but the script and Kaufmans reputation sold him. Owen immersed himself for months in all things Hemingway to capture the man and his relationship with Gellhorn, including their correspondence. If you read the letters, they were epic, romantic, beautiful, and they were pining for each other, Owen said, adding the films dialogue reflects both Hemingways work and the couples own intimate exchanges. Kidman, who plays Gellhorn as a young woman and in her later but still energetic years, said she finds appeal in women who push the boundaries. Im very attracted to them because we need them as role models. We were dedicated to giving her what we felt was the story she deserved, Kidman said. Shes very prickly at times, and had a strong sort of male side to her where she can exist physically in war. ... I loved that side of her, and Ive never done that on screen before. For Kaufman, the film provided an oblique way to pay tribute to his adventurous and outspoken wife of 52 years who died of cancer in 2009. That was Rose, a friend told Kaufman after seeing Kidmans portrayal. Kaufman laments that Gellhorns accomplishments and bravery, so celebrated in her life, have faded from view: She and Hemingway, two superb writers if mismatched or mistimed lovers, both deserve attention and respect, he said. The 89-year-old Gellhorn, beset by ill health, ended her life in 1998, long after the depression-afflicted Hemingway killed himself in 1962 at age 61. Who knows what Martha would really have thought (of the film), or Hemingway, mused Kaufman. But Im glad we could give this gift back to them. Gary Sinise Robert DeNiro Associated PressCANNES, France Actress Audrey Tautou, known for her sweet and light roles in such films as Amelie, praised the late director Claude Miller as a bright and passionate filmmaker who helped her turn in a darker direction in his final film. The French star plays a husband-poisoner in Millers Therese Desqueyroux, which closed the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday at a special screening celebrating the lauded New Wave filmmaker, who died last month of cancer at age 70. The contemporary of Francois Truffaut, whose large body of work includes 1998s Cannes Jury Prize winner Class Trip, helped Tautou to take on the role in the adaptation of Francois Mauriacs novel about a frustrated wife who slowly tries to kill her husband with arsenic to get freedom. The gritty role, and Millers acuity and patience, helped her unlock her inner dark side. It didnt exactly free me, but it did make more want to explore cinema even more, she said, in an interview with The Associated Press, wearing shades on a terrace overlooking the French Riviera. I really liked the experience ... I had to try to not be scared of Therese. I want to go to the darker side of humanity.Audrey Tautou grown up at Cannes finale Spotlight on PEOPLE E NTERTAINMENT Page B5 MONDAY, MAY 28, 2012 Storied romance C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Birthday There is a strong chance you will be quite restless and eager to explore as many new areas as possible in the year ahead. This opens the door for numerous exciting developments to occur, leading to some big surprises. Gemini (May 21-June 20) The best way to influence others is to lead by example. Plus, be sure all the directives you give are explicit and clear. If you fail in either area, you wont have any kind of following. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Just because you talk about doing something doesnt mean the job is now done. Adopting such a mindset will severely dilute your productiveness and put you far behind. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Be extremely careful regarding to whom you go for financial advice, especially if the matter involves a large sum of money. Make sure your counselor has an excellent track record. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Just because someone disagrees with your ideas or opinions doesnt mean he or she is the enemy. Be accepting of individuals with divergent views. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Your attitude will be the determining factor as to whether you succeed or fail. If you feel the world is against you, you will find ways to prove you are right. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If someone close to you doesnt want to discuss a certain matter, instead of badgering him or her, be respectful of what the person wants. She or he has valid reasons for being secret. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Be your own advocate instead of letting someone else speak for you, especially to an authority figure. No one can plead your case as well as you. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If you want something done a certain way, you should shoulder some of the burden to set the example. Dont expect others to read your mind and do things exactly as you want unless you show them through effort. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) When youre involved in an endeavor that includes other people, its smart not to make any changes without first consulting everyone else. The time it takes could save you a big headache. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Any disagreement between you and your mate should only be dealt with in private. Hold your tongue until youre alone, so onlookers dont lose respect for both of you. Aries (March 21-April 19) Dont cause needless problems by making mountains out of molehills or blowing a petty infraction way out of proportion. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Two things could happen to you if you make an impulse buy: First, you could end up with inferior merchandise if you dont do your research, and second, youre likely to spend far more than you should.

After they learned all of the basics, we concentrated on the bidding conventions that I thought they should know: weak two-bids, Stayman, transfers into the majors and negative doubles. And we covered leads and signals. Once they had those straight, they decided they would prefer to shuffle and deal so they would not know the themes of my prepared deals. And these guys really knew how to shuffle. There were four interesting deals, with which we will start the week. South bid one heart with a hand that is worth a two-club opening in trick-taking potential, but is relatively low in point-count terms. (The guideline here is to open two clubs with a one-suiter, but to open in a suit with a two-suiter unless both opponents are yawning and looking out of the window, making it plain that they will not come into the auction!) West might have doubled over one heart, but to double, then to bid two diamonds if partner advances with two clubs, traditionally shows a hand with 18 to 20 high-card points. North raised to two hearts, of course. East passed because his heart king wasnt looking good. And South took the sure plus by jumping to four hearts. How does one find six hearts if partner has the heart king instead of the diamond king? Goodness knows! A four-diamond splinter bid shows a void in this position because a slam is so unlikely otherwise. But my group has not met this gadget yet. Of course, six hearts is borderline, being on a finesse into the overcaller. Here, though, declarer had no trouble taking 12 tricks.

Please remember those servicemen and women who have died serving their country. You can honor our fallen heroes by visiting cemeteries and placing flags or flowers on the graves of veterans. It is also customary to fly the flag at half-staff until noon. Dear Annie: A few years ago, on Memorial Day, you printed the words to Taps. Very few people actually know the history of this melody. Until the Civil War, there was a bugle call known as Lights Out or Extinguish Lights. The melody was a variation of a common military tune called a tattoo and was written by Maj. Gen. Winfield Scott and first published in 1835. Union Gen. Daniel Butterfield, who could not read music, adapted the tune for his brigade in 1862 with the help of his brigade bugler, Oliver Norton. This adaptation became known as Taps. Later that year, Capt. John C. Tidball started the custom of playing Taps at a military funeral. A corporal in his unit died, and Tidball wanted to bury him with full honors, which included a three-gun salute, but his request was denied due to the closeness of the enemy positions. Instead, he decided to play Butterfields version of Taps. The new bugle call quickly spread to other units, and it became a standard component of U.S. military funerals in 1891. Butterfield died in 1901, and Taps was played at his funeral. No one knows who wrote the words, but Id appreciate it if you could print them again. New York History Buff Dear History Buff: We would be honored to do so: Taps Day is done, gone the sun, From the hills, from the lake, from the skies. All is well, safely rest, God is nigh. Go to sleep, peaceful sleep, May the soldier or sailor, our God keep. On the land or the deep, Safe in sleep. Love, good night, must thou go, When the day, and the night need thee so? All is well. Speedeth all To their rest. Fades the light; and afar, Goeth day, and the stars shineth bright, Fare thee well; day has gone, Night is on. Thanks and praise, for our days, Neath the sun, neath the stars, neath the sky, As we go, this we know, God is nigh. Dear Annie: You often print letters from older folks who complain about young people, but heres the flip side. I have noticed at family gatherings the older relatives tell horrifying stories about terrible things that happened, give a lot of detail about what physical ailments they or their friends are experiencing, or make comments that are racist or sexist, all of which my young daughters cannot help but hear. I frequently find myself balancing the need to be polite and respectful, while wishing they would use a G-rated filter on their conversation. We have worked hard to raise our children with little gratuitous exposure to violence and discriminatory remarks. To have our efforts derailed by their own sweet grandmother telling a story of the awful family next door or their grandfather making sweeping derogatory comments about a particular ethnic group is very frustrating. Please encourage your older readers to temper their stories and comments when young ones are around. Sandwiched in Vermont Dear Vermont: Thanks for the suggestion. Dont be reluctant to tell Grandma and Grandpa youd appreciate it if they would be more circumspect around the little ones. They probably have no idea that you object or why.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
