Theres something about Chick-Fil-A that doesnt appeal to me. Renee Drennan What is the worst fast-food restaurant? Why? Taco Bell. Because I really dont care for their food, and I dont eat beef. Julianne Grant Whataburger because they are the most expensive. David Walker John Reble is the chief of the Milton Fire Department. Q: What brought you to Santa Rosa County? A: My family and I moved here from Naples, Fla., in 1996 when I took the job as fire chief of the City of Milton Fire Department. Q: What fictional character would you say you are the most like? A: I try to be like Captain Jack Aubrey of the HMS Surprise. He is able to consistently lead his crew to victory and success, always looking out for their welfare, while also striving to balance a strong family life. Q: What was your most embarrassing moment you now laugh about? A: Getting a brand new 4WD Rescue Vehicle stuck in the mud while taking photos for the local paper.

In 1775, the First Continental Congress declared a National Day of Prayer, but it was not established into federal law until 1952, when then-President Harry Truman signed a joint resolution with the United States Congress to make the day ofcial. In 1988, the law was amended and signed by President Ronald Reagan, who designated the rst Thursday of May as the ofcial National Day of Prayer. During the ceremony, the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government are represented as well as military and local government bodies. This years day of prayer will run until 12:35 a.m. Immanuel Baptist Church will host a separate celebration at 6:30 p.m. in honor of the National Day of Prayer.

Longer comments are better suited as a letter to the editor.Sunday, 10:43 a.m. Hi, this is Patricia. I live off Garcon Point Road south of the interstate. I would like to shop at Wal-Mart in Gulf Breeze, which is much closer to me than the WalMart in Pace. I want to take the new bridge, but I dont want a SunPass or pay $3.75 a trip. If I could buy a trip ticket, say 20 trips for $40, and punch the ticket every time I go it would be much better. It would be great if they could do that. They need to consider another marketing trick than a SunPass or toll. Thank you.Sunday, 6:52 p.m. This is Robin. The editorial page looked so good and I read all of it today. Taking out Pro and Con is one of the smartest things you have ever done.Saturday, 6:22 p.m. Pete here. CJ, when I want to know whats going on, Fox News is absolutely the LAST station Id watch. Its not called Faux News and Fantasy News for no reason! Studies have shown that Fox viewers are consistently the most uninformed/misinformed of all cable news viewers.Saturday, 2:37 p.m. Hi, this is Jay. No disrespect to women, but to the one who is an elder in her church, I guess you have not read or chose to ignore the verse in I Corinthians 14:34-35. Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in church. I just thought I would refresh your memory.Saturday, 2:30 p.m. Hi, this is Paul. In the April 28 issue of the Press Gazette it seems like Bob Cole is the only county commissioner with any sense when it comes to the 12 acres plus three acres. That is a lot of property and it is dirt-cheap. The roads are already four laned, turn lanes are in place, streetlights are there and it certainly is centrally located. It will be 15-20 years before Highway 90 is fourlaned to Highway 87. I live in East Milton off Ward Basin Road and it can be a pain to get there. If Highway 90 is backed up, the interstate is backed up. Come on people, get some sense. This is a great suggestion by Bob Cole. I hope everybody goes with it.Saturday, 12:03 p.m. Hi, this is Joyce from Milton. I would like to commend Commissioner Bob Cole on recommending the 12 acres of property on Dogwood Drive for the Courthouse. It is about time someone makes a decision that has sense to it. It seems the best place for the courthouse. It is about time someone makes a common sense decision. Okay people; lets vote to get the 12 acres for a courthouse on Dogwood Drive. Thursday, 9:44 p.m. My name is Jane. I want to thank the gentleman in the tax ofce for saying to me, Thank you for serving. It was so nice. I was shocked. Thursday, 5:39 p.m. Yes this is A.W. Hello seniors in Santa Rosa. The Medical Center has started a wonderful program for us called Senior Extra. Our rst meeting was April 26. The meetings focused on health and wellness. Come join us next month. This means we dont have to go over the bridge to enjoy our senior benets. All seniors are welcome and thank you for allowing me to call. Thursday, 2:37 p.m. Hi, this is Mary. I live off of Oak Ridge Lane, which is off Avalon Boulevard. There are a lot of abandoned trailers that people are living in that should not be living there. I dont know whom these trailers belong to. I wish the Sheriff would check into this. It seems very dangerous. We walk our dogs and the area is not feel safe due to the abandoned mobile homes. Thank you. Please provide a color photograph if possible. All information must be typed. Wednesdays paper please submit by Friday at 3pm.

Local Santa Rosas Press Gazette| A3 Wednesday, May 2, 2012 By BILL GAMBLIN 377-4611 | @SRPG_Bill news@srpressgazette.com It took Bill Hanson almost eight years to accomplish some thing he had on his heart for a solider he had only read about until 2012. In 2004, Northwest Florida had an outpouring of support for U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Dustin Tuller, who was seriously wounded in Iraq. Two days before Christmas Eve 2003, Tuller received mul tiple gunshots to his legs and pelvis, which led to the eventual amputation of both his legs. Many residents jumped in to help build a home for Tuller and his children, but Hanson wanted to do more. Recently, he (and many oth ers) had that chance as Tuller and his wife, Cheryl, were shop ping for a swimming pool. I spoke to my chaplain (Jef fery Jencks) about this after learning about Dustin and his situation, but I didnt want to go directly to the family, Hanson said. Then we got a call from Cheryl Tuller about estimates for a pool, and I asked my sec retary to hold them off a couple of days so I could check on a few things. Hanson, who owns Gulf Coast Pool and Spa in Pensacola, called his suppliers. They jumped on board and not only installed the pool, but lined up others to help landscape and nish the para dise for the Tullers. Hanson even talked to a business he works with (Compass Solar) to install a solar system, which keeps the pool at a constant 85 degrees. We were talking about a pool, but we werent really sold on the idea, Dustin said. To make it happen, we would have to get a home equity loan, and we werent too keen on the idea of doing that from the start. Hanson then went out to the Tuller home and, while looking at how he would get his equipment up to the property, he told Cheryl Tuller the news. I asked her how I would get my equipment up to the house, and she showed me the service road, Hanson said. That is when I told her they would have a pool and it would not cost them a dime. I told her I was here to make sure Dustin got what he wanted and needed. Cheryl was overcome with emotion, and then they both went to share the news with Dustin. We had been talking about the pool and the size and every thing, Cheryl recalled. Dustin even had me get a tape mea sure so Bill could measure him to make sure he could stand in the shallow end and the water be about chest high. Dustin, who said he is appre ciative of the support he has re ceived since coming home from Iraq, said he was overwhelmed with the news of a pool. When I rst learned about what was happening, the rst thing I did was ask myself if I have accomplished enough to re ceive this, Tuller said. If I am not giving back, then I dont de serve something like this. For ve years, Tuller was on the road every other week. He was visiting military hospitals, working with disabled young adults and even participated in 20 marathons. I remember when some thing came on the news about a person in a situation like this, I would turn the channel, Tuller confessed. Then one day it was me on television and being asked questions. I am wanting to live as nor mal a life as I can, and that is all you can ask for. I have ran marathons, gone down ski slopes hundreds of times and more, Tuller said. I can teach you now how to ski, play tennis, basketball and help you get a feeling of accomplishment. That is the biggest reward for me. When the pool was completed, Cheryl and Dustin surprised the kids with it. We kept this secret from them, Dustin and Cheryl said. We watched every thing happen and helped do things. Now you will nd Dustin en joying the large shallow end, where he plans to spend most of his time. This was kind of hands-on for me, as I helped the work crews make sure things were wide enough for me and my chair, Dustin said. This is just an amazing thing to have hap pen when you think of what all the businesses are going though these days. I am just overwhelmed.

S HARE YOUR OPINIONS www.srpressgazette.com Wednesday, May 2, 2012 A Section O PINION ROSEMARY BEACH As John Stossel points out in his great new book, No They Cant, Why Government Fails but Individuals Succeed, we are convinced by liberal academia and the mainstream media that politicians are somehow heroic. In annual Harris Interactive polls, people were asked to name their heroes. In 2001 Jesus Christ won. In 2009, Obama won, followed closely by Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. When former U.S. Sen. Edwin Muskie died, newspapers and TV stations ran long and solemn tributes to the Democrat operative. For its maudlin tribute, The New York Times tapped Bill Clinton for his testimonial that Generations to come will bene t from Muskies work. Stossel points out that David Packard, founder of Hewlett Packard, died on the same day; the papers ran much smaller obituaries. Laser printers, 60 million PCs, hundreds of useful products and thousands of jobs existed because of David Packard, Stossel points out. He created thousands of millionaires and a $5 billion foundation that helps children. With his management style from the computer company he founded, Packard reordered corporate America. He got rid of executive suites so all workers could communicate better. He came up with the pro t sharing plan, extime for workers and many other innovations that made Americans lives better. Today his company, founded in a garage, employs 340,000 people. Yet Edwin Muskie was viewed by the media as amazing. David Packard was just a greedy, evil businessman. Those who believe government has magical transformative powers also seek to convince us all of our ills can be blamed on someone else. That was the whole hope and change shell game Obama played on the country in 2008. Just vote for me, and all your problems will go away. If government could make you feel better about yourself, it would be a bar. Obama believes corporations are inherently evil and are out to destroy workers. Mr. President needs to put down the John Grisham novels and read the work of Nobel Prizewinning economist Milton Friedman. U.S. enterprises have done more to better the lives of Americans than any politician. The best we can hope for in our elected of cials is that they will get out of the way, taking their regulations and graft with them, so American ingenuity and enterprise can lift the standard of living of all our citizens. The real reason politicians ght so hard to get re-elected, at all costs, is that they fear having to live under the laws and regulations they created. Obama spent the past week giving teleprompter speeches about his vision of fairness and how, if only we passed his Buffet Rule, all would be right with the world. Never mind that both liberal and conservative economists scored it as a political game of conjured-up envy. The bill raises only $5 billion. Its simple math: Obama has run up $5 trillion in de cit spending, so $5 billion divided by $5 trillion is one-tenth of one percent (.001). It was another class envy ploy, not a real proposal. He even lined up a few millionaire donors, mostly Democrat fundraisers, to stand behind him while he made his pitch to the nation for raising taxes. They had confessed to Obama, the high priest of taxation, that they did not pay their fair share and should be ashamed. It is an article of faith among the few still-rich liberals that being rich is OK as long as you feel guilty about it. This Democrat Kabuki theater has all the substance of a WWF match between Obama, the defender of the people, and the evil Darth Vader (a political rival to be named later). I trust the average voter sees this for what it is: unsubstantive political pandering and grandstanding. Obama made $900,000 less last year than he did in the previous year. So even he is suffering under his own economic policies. This is a man whose entire wealth has come from writing two books about himself before he had actually done anything. Harvard now offers a class called Understanding Obama a class I doubt even Obama could teach. Our country is great because of good people who pursue their own self-interests in business. Businesses power our country, and citizens power innovation. People like David Packard and their vision make us great, not opportunistic politicians who create nothing of economic or moral value. Ron Hart, a libertarian syndicated op-ed humorist, awardwinning author and TV/radio commentator can be reached at Ron@ RonaldHart.com or visit www.RonaldHart.com Political season is again upon us. With it comes the bevy of signs, speeches and phone calls. As Santa Rosa County Supervisor of Elections Ann Bodenstein certi es candidates, there will be a host of questions directed at us, the Press Gazette. To help lessen the number of calls, we want to let everyone know some guidelines about the upcoming political season. First, we allow every candidate one opportunity to announce his or her candidacy and tell readers a little about themselves along with the of ce he is seeking. This single shot is offered free of charge and can be accompanied by a mugshot photo. For these to be printed, they must be received by the paper no later than June 16. None will be printed after June 30. This is a way for the candidates to tell you a little about themselves. Secondly, we do not endorse or support any candidates. Some papers might do this, but we do not and have not for decades. We feel that if you are old enough to vote, then you are old enough and mature enough to make your own decisions at the voting booth. In keeping with this feeling, we will not publish or print letters to the editor espousing one candidate over another. In years past, weve seen this turn into a letter-writing campaign much like yard signs turn into a race to see who can get the most along the roadways. If you feel strongly about a candidate and you want to offer an endorsement for everyone to see, we have ways to share the messages in the Press Gazette and we would be happy to talk to you about advertising. You are welcome to talk about the problems you feel we are facing as a community or nation, but keep candidates and party af liation out of it. We will be going to area debates and candidate forums and will take photos of the event, but that is only to document what is going on. Finally, we will be putting together a list of potential questions for candidates to answer and will, in late July, run the candidates responses. These answers also will be limited in length because this is a big election year. Political seasons like this always prove interesting, and the best way for you to get informed is to participate and vote. Ironically, we nd those who grumble the most are often the same people who vote the least. We have a long time to decide. Early voting for the primary doesnt start until Aug. 4. You make the process work. It takes only a few minutes. Let your vote be heard. Stump for your candidate OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Be a good American and vote Less than half of eligible voters are taking the time to vote. Thats a shame in our democracy form of government. Voting in the United States has not always been easy and free. I remember my father was forced to pay poll taxes before he was allowed to vote during the Great Depression. Money was not plentiful during those years people were paid 50 cents per day for a 12-hour workday in Tennessee. Without funds for my father to pay his poll taxes, he worked on a nearby county dirt road with pick and shovel for three days of which he would receive poll tax credit to vote. If he brought his wagon and team of mules to transport the dirt from one place to another, one day would do it. This was before tractors and bulldozers. AfricanAmericans could not vote until the 15th Amendment was passed and rati ed. Women could not vote until the 19th Amendment was passed and rati ed. The 24th Amendment was passed in 1962 declaring poll tax unconstitutional, and it was rati ed by the states on Jan. 23, 1964. After ghting the Japanese for almost three years during World War II as a member of the First Marine Division and nely reaching voting age of 21, I voted for Harry S Truman. I have voted in all elections since that time. Be a good American and vote. Noah Belew Gulf Breeze Do you see what I see? Mr. George Zimmerman and friends set up an Internet legal defense fund before he was charged with a crime. This fund has reported collecting only $200,004. But they have raised more than reported, up to $1 million, but after he was charged, he said he was broke. Did race play a part in those that support Zimmermans action in killing an unarmed 17-year-old boy because he looked like he might be up to something no good? Frederick Henderson Milton Who are the real heroes? McDonalds probably because thats always where the kids want to go. They just love it. Rene Grosjean I would have to say Taco Bell because I dont really like Mexican that much. Gerald Hillman All of them because they are disgusting. Brittany Bradford McDonalds because its not good quality. Sue Petterson WORD from page A1 Page 8 What is the worst fast-food restaurant and why? McDonalds, because my kids always want to go there, and it gets old after a while. Holley McCall HART TALK Ron Hart When former U.S. Sen. Edwin Muskie died, newspapers and TV stations ran long and solemn tributes to the Democrat operative. David Packard, founder of Hewlett Packard, died on the same day; the papers ran much smaller obituaries. Packard came up with the pro t sharing plan, ex-time for workers and many other innovations that made Americans lives better. Today his company, founded in a garage, employs 340,000 people.

Many of those students are stuck inside or forced to watch as their classmates have fun. Because of that, S.S. Dixon put on a special day for those set of children on Friday at their second annual Patriot Games. The mock Field Day is held for special needs children who are enrolled in adaptive Physical Education at their schools rather than regular Physical Education. April Martin, the principal at S.S. Dixon Intermediate School, invited ten North Santa Rosa schools this year, almost double the amount she had out last year to partake in the events. Its a day catered to them and their abilities, said Liz Williamson, S.S. Dixons ESE teacher and chairperson for the Patriot Games. This is a day that they get to be themselves. Williamson said that almost 200 children and faculty came out to participate and help out in the Patriot Games. Pace High Schools Student Government Association was also on hand to help out during the morning event. Every day these children have to learn how to adapt, and today they can just be them, Williamson said. The children participated in activities that challenged their balance, their motor skills and even had a few side activities for fun. Martin said the Patriot Games would not be a success without the volunteers and the donors from around the community. Martin said that lunch and drinks were provided from area donors along with the T-shirts. Every school had their own color T-shirt. Most of these children just cant participate in Field Day, Martin said. This is a day to help them feel good about themselves and a day that they can take pride in their own ability.

Thats something you might hear out of Melissa Gills mouth. The Milton mother whose son, Corey, was struck and killed by a Milton man in January 2011, said she doesnt want others to mourn over her son, because he wouldnt want them to. He didnt like sadness, Gill said. Corey was killed by a driver who then ed the scene and was found a day later at a nearby hotel. On what would have been Coreys 18th birthday, Melissa was in court staring at the man who struck her son. This year, Gill didnt want to look back a year after her sons death and hold a memorial; instead, she wanted to do it on his birthday. This year, Coreys birthday falls on the same night of the Milton High School prom. These kids dont understand that he wouldnt want them to be upset about what happened, Gill said. Its incredibly hard to put a positive spin on this. Im not getting me through this. God is getting me through this. Corey was a member of the Milton High School NJROTC, and his teacher, Lt. Commander Jeff Dyer, said he had dreams of becoming a U.S. Marine. Melissa Gill said many of Coreys friends still are mourning his death a year after the incident. She said since the accident, she has done a lot of research and a lot of forgiving. She even attempted to give the hitand-run driver a Bible while he was in jail. I just wanted to know what happened and why it happened, and lay this all to rest, Gill said. The mother of a 24year-old Marine son and a daughter has gone through police records, on-scene photos and even listened to 911 calls from the night of her sons death. She said the research has put her mind at ease about the situation. A few months after Corey was killed, I felt Him (God) pushing me to talk to the driver, Gill said. I went to his girlfriends house, and sent them a box of cookies and plants from the funeral. When she went to the house, Gill was told the woman had been receiving death threats and had been in hiding with the drivers two sons since the accident. I went and let her know I dont hold her responsible, Gill said. My heart was crushed, but I asked her What can I do for you? I just told her my family was just as destroyed as hers was. Since the accident, Gill said the man who killed her son has apologized to her in court, never in person. I just want to look him in the eye and ask him why he drove off that night, Gill said. But two weeks after he apologized to me in court, he led for an appeal. It showed me he was not ready to man up. Gill said many of her sons friends did not want to go to prom this year because it fell on Coreys birthday. I told them, No, youre going to prom whether I have to drag you there or not, Gill said. Gill is planning on holding a memorial service thanking the re ghters, local law enforcement and friends for the courage they showed the night of her sons death. The ceremony will take place May 5 from 3-8 p.m. at the Hickory Hammock pavilion next to the Hickory Hammock Baptist Church in Milton. After prom, Gill said, she is inviting Coreys friends over to share their intimate moments and stories they had with the 17-year-old. He wanted to be a father so bad, Gill said. But I told him, not until you get your (high school) diploma. He used to joke with me all the time and said he already had his kindergarten diploma. She said unlike a lot of parents who go through an event like she did, she doesnt look at the glass as half empty. Yes, it was my worst nightmare, Gill said. But I went and did my research and looked at what happened, how it happened, and I was able to lay him to rest. People always say to me Look at what you missed, look at what you missed. But I always tell them, Look at what I got. Milton High student remembered a year later scene and was found a day SPECIAL TO THE PRESS GAZETTE Corey Gill was killed in a hit and run in January 2011.

BIDDEFORD, Maine (AP) When Sister Elaine Lachance devoted herself to a religious life straight out of high school in 1959, her religious order had more than a dozen convents in the U.S. with nearly 260 sisters. Today, the Good Shepherd Sisters of Quebec, based in Canada, has just ve convents in Maine and Massachusetts with 56 sisters. The youngest is 64 years old, and its been more than 20 years since a new member joined. Rather than leave the future of the convents to prayer and chance, Lachance has turned to the Internet. Shes using social media and blogging to attract women who feel the calling to serve God and their community. She says she had her awkward moments when she began using Facebook and writing blog posts. But I knew I had to go there, that I had to do it, said Lachance, who recently turned 70. You have to go where the young people are. And thats where they are. The number of nuns and sisters has plunged through the decades as more career opportunities for women opened, parochial schools closed and sisterhood became less visible. Generally, a nun lives a cloistered, contemplative life in a monastery, while sisters live and work within their communities. In the U.S., the count has fallen from about 180,000 in 1965 to 55,000 last year, a drop of nearly 70 percent, according to the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate. In 2009, their median age was 73, with 91 percent of them 60 and older. At one time, women would join the sisterhood through word of mouth or their personal interactions with sisters, said Lachance, vocation director for the Good Shepherd Sisters. But now, many younger women arent even aware its a choice. For years, Lachance has visited Catholic schools, placed ads in religious publications and attended job fairs to recruit sisters. Shes still doing those things, but she has also turned to Facebook, her blog and YouTube. The order also updated its website and hired a public relations company. Its hard to sell somebody on committing to a religious life, with its vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, in todays world of slick technology, fast cash and material goods, Sister Dorina Chasse said on a recent day at St. Joseph Convent, a home along the Saco River in Biddeford where elderly and sick sisters are taken care of. Its hard for them to leave that, Chasse said. Still, theres been an uptick among women showing an interest in pursuing a religious life, said Patrice Tuohy of the National Religious Vocation Council, a Chicago-based group representing vocation directors for religious organizations. The NRVC launched a website called VocationMatch.com seven years ago that links young people interested in leading religious lives to religious communities. The site gets about 6,000 inquiries a year. The Internet is useful for such questions because it offers instant information and is anonymous, Tuohy said. For a 20-year-old to think about joining a religious community is an unusual decision, not to mention countercultural, she said. Someone whos thinking about taking a vow of poverty and chastity goes counter to a culture that promotes sex and money and power. The Internet has made a huge difference in how religious communities are recruiting, Tuohy said. Besides websites and Facebook pages, some are using podcasts, YouTube videos and chat rooms. According to a 2009 study commissioned by NRVC, 87 percent of religious institutes had used the Internet for vocation promotion in the past ve years.

NEW YORK (AP) If you think youre a picky hotel guest, check out the pet peeves of Anthony Melchiorri, who critiques hotels for a living and hosts a new show called Hotel Impossible on the Travel Channel. Melchiorri is freaked out by dirty grout, hates Internet fees and always checks hotel rooms for something he almost cant bear to name. On the show, which airs Monday nights at 9 p.m., Melchiorri advises hotels on how to improve everything from facilities to service to decor with a goal of increasing sales. Hes brought his in-your-face, can-do assessments to properties ranging from Gurneys, a historic beachfront inn in Montauk, N.Y., in the Hamptons, to a boutique hotel, The New Yorker, in Miamis artsy MiMo district. Here is his process: THE LOBBY: When I walk into a hotel, I want the illusion that my stay is going to be perfect. I want to see the bellman greet me. I want to see that the paint isnt chipping. I want the front desk to engage me, treat me like a person, so that I know any problem I may have, they will take care of me. BIGGEST FEAR: As soon as I walk in the room, I put my luggage in the bathroom because thats the safest place away from any insects. ... Now I inspect the bed. Im looking at the seams of the mattress and headboard, end tables, the side of the bed. Let me be clear: Most hotels dont have bed bugs. I have never found a bed bug in a hotel. But I never put my luggage on the bed, ever. And once I realize theres nothing living in the bed, I look for a metal luggage rack and put my luggage on that. (Metal repels bed bugs; they prefer wood.) THE ROUTINE: I bolt the door to the room, and if theres an adjoining room, I check the door to make sure that room is locked. I cannot tell you how many times people have walked in on me. I also look in the shower, sink and tiles for dirty grout. I cant get in a shower with dirty grout, not even in my own house. It freaks me out. THE EXHALE: Now that I know my room is clean, I can forget that Im a germaphobe. I can forget that I didnt want to touch the remote control. If the hotel does its job, and gives me the illusion that its perfect, then my defenses go down. PET PEEVES: Rooms that dont have enough electrical outlets; alarm clocks that go off at 4 a.m. because the maid didnt turn off the previous guests setting; hotels that charge for Internet. The Algonquin Hotel was famous for hosting a lot of writers. When Dorothy Parker was sitting there at the Algonquin Round Table, and she needed a pen, she got a pen for free. Today we write using the Internet. Why should I charge somebody for the Internet if I dont charge them for a pen? THE PHONE CALL : I once implemented a policy at a hotel that every single guest be called by the front desk within 10 minutes of being in the room to make sure they didnt need anything. But then I started getting complaints from people. I just got in my room, I was in the bathroom, I thought my wife was calling! If I need you, Ill call you! So I stopped the phone calls to guests. NOTHING FANCY: I really enjoy three-star, limited service hotels like Holiday Inn Express. ... You get your free Internet, your mini-mart, your free breakfast, the room has a beautiful mattress. Its everything I need. Looking for A NEW ERA HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Less than a year after NASA ended its shuttle program, players in Americas space business are casting around for new direction. United Technologies Corp. is the most recent company to announce it will sharply scale back its role in space exploration. Its selling Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne, a manufacturer of rocket engines and liquid-propulsion systems that its owned for seven years. The sale of Rocketdyne and other businesses are intended to raise $3 billion to nance United Technologies purchase of aerospace parts maker Goodrich Corp. Greg Hayes, chief nancial of cer at United Technologies, rapped U.S. space policy when he announced the decision in mid-March to sell Rocketdyne. Growth will be limited at Rocketdyne, Hayes told investor analysts. Its still a very good business. Its a national asset ... but unfortunately, without a national space policy, growth will be limited for some time. Rocketdyne dates to early rocketry, working with pioneers such as Wernher von Braun and contributing to propulsion on Apollo spacecraft in the 1960s and s that brought astronauts to the moon. The company has a future with NASA even if the space agencys path is unclear, said Rocketdyne President Jim Maser. Three of four companies vying to take crew to the space station would use Rocketdyne propulsion, he said. Still, he said, NASAs path is unclear. There is an ofcial space policy and I cant cite it, to be honest, Maser said. NASAs 30-year shuttle program ended last July with the voyage of Atlantis. The space shuttle Discovery has become a museum piece, turned over by NASA in midApril to the Smithsonian Institution. Other companies have shifted some business from space exploration. Lockheed Martin Corp. closed its shuttle tank production line in New Orleans in 2010, ending the jobs of about 1,400 workers. A year later, NASA chose that site in New Orleans to build components of its new heavy-lift rocket, but only if Congress funds the project. ATK Space SystemsTech has laid off hundreds of workers in Utah, citing the phase-out of the space shuttle and the Minuteman III ballistic missile programs. And Floridas Space Coast, once the center of rocket launches, has lost thousands of jobs. NASA is still using companies such as Boeing, SpaceX and others to ferry cargo and astronauts to and from the International Space Station in three to ve years. Until then, the space agency will spend tens of millions of dollars per seat on Russian Soyuz spacecraft. With shuttles end, space rms seek new direction AP This photo provided by NASA shows Space shuttle Enterprise, riding on the back of the NASA 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft as it ies near the Statue of Liberty on Friday in New York.

The Associated Press Bob Baffert is happy to be anywhere these days, considering a heart attack attened him in Dubai last month. After it was over, it felt like, Man, I just, I got a second chance here. ... It was just a weird scare, the Hall of Fame trainer said. Ive got to redo, change my lifestyle for the best. Ive got to take care of myself like I take care of my horses. Life is good right now. Hes got the likely favorite in the Ken tucky Derby with Bodemeister, a talented colt named after his son, Bode, who is named after Dads ski pal, Bode Miller. Bodemeister stamped himself as a standout with his 9 1-2-length win in the Arkansas Derby, the most impressive performance in a season of prep races that have done little to clarify a muddled Derby picture. A full eld of 20 horses is expected for the 1 1-4-mile race, and it will be one of the deepest and most tal ented when they break from the gate at Churchill Downs on May 5. All 20 horses are stronger than I can remember in years, said Dr. Kendall Hansen, whose light gray colt, Hansen, carries the family name and will be bet heavily. Theres no horse thats setting the world on re yet. Its nice that youre not running against a Northern Dancer or a Secretariat. Theres a lot of horses that have a chance going into the Derby. Injuries that derailed favorites I Want Revenge and Quality Road in 2009; Esk endereya in 2010; and Uncle Mo last year have not been a problem this time around. Rather its been inconsistency among the top 3-year-olds that has opened the door for a handful of colts to wear the garland of red roses next in the winners circle. Bodemeister is arguably the most talented 3-year-old this year, although he lacks seasoning, never having raced as a 2-year-old. Baffert had him playing catch-up, with the colt making four starts in the run-up to the Derby. The only other Derby candidate to race that much is Prospective. I just took my time with him, Baffert said. He was just immature. I wasnt in a big hurry with him, so Im glad I did. It made him a better horse. Baffert spaced out Bodemeis ters races, giving the colt plenty of rest between starts. Now, hell be asked to win the Derby off a three-week turnaround from his dominant win in Arkansas. Baffert, who has won the Der by three times but not since 2002, also will saddle Liaison. Hes getting better with each and every start, so if he runs his same race back that puts him right there, said Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, who will be aboard Bodemeister in the Derby for just the second time. We all know many things can change awful quick on Derby day. Baffert demurs on Bodemeister as the likely favorite, suggesting Union Rags or Hansen could claim such high-prole sta tus. Still, Baffert thrives on coming to the Derby with a real shot and hes simply grateful to be around at all. The last four Derby winners had just two prep races as 3-year-olds, including Super Saver in 2010. Among this years top contenders, Union Rags was 3-1 as a 2-year-old; Creative Cause was 3-2; and Gemologist was 3-0 and has won both of his starts this year. Well continue to see winners of the Kentucky Derby come from all different angles with various prep programs. Its all about everything going just right on that particular day and liking the sur face on however its playing that day, said Todd Pletcher, who won his rst Derby with Super Saver and trains Gemologist. Theres so many variables that I dont think theres an exact science to it. Weve seen all those things change, and a lot of the so-called rules of having to win the Kentucky Derby a certain way have sort of all been shattered in the last 10 years or so. The 138th edition of the Derby prom ises speed in the form of Breeders Cup Juvenile winner Hansen and Trinniberg, winner of the Swale and Bay Shore in his last two starts but who has never run far ther than seven furlongs. Hansen led all the way in beating Union Rags in last years BC Juvenile. Each of the previous four Juvenile win ners never made it to the Derby starting gate, but this year eight Juvenile starters are likely to run. Five of those eight were the top ve nishers Hansen, Union Rags, Creative Cause, Dullahan and Take Charge Indy and all of them have run impressively this year. Michael Matz is back at the Derby with Union Rags, six years after he trained Barbaro to victory. Barbaro stunningly broke down in the Preakness, leaving fans crying at the track. His subsequent battle to overcome those injuries won him a huge following that continued even af ter his death months later. He can run close to the pace, he can run off the pace, he can do whatever you ask him to do, he said of Union Rags. It all depends on how the race unfolds. His mind is that good that I dont think it re ally matters. Talented eld ready for 138th Kentucky Derby Exercise rider George Alvarez gallops Kentucky Derby hopeful Bodemeister. AP BOSTON (AP) Boston Red Sox slug ger Ted Williams 1949 MVP plaque sold april 28 for nearly $300,000 at the rst major auction of his sports, military and personal memorabilia. Nearly 800 items sold at Fenway Park, the worlds oldest baseball park and home eld of the only team that Wil liams played for during his 1939-1960 ma jor league career. Some of the proceeds from the auction will benet The Jimmy Fund, a charity afliated with Bostons Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for which the slugger helped raise money during his lifetime. A baseball in pristine condition that Babe Ruth autographed for Williams sold for $195,500. The ball, which had the inscription: To my pal Ted Williams, From Babe Ruth, set a record sale for a baseball signed by Ruth that wasnt used in a game, Hunt Auctions Inc. said. The ball was stolen from the Williams fami lys Florida home in the 1970s and wasnt recovered until 2005. Williams 1957 Babe Ruth Sultan of Swat Award for outstanding batting achievement sold for $230,000. Other top items included his 1949 American League MVP plaque, which fetched $299,000, a used Red Sox road jersey from 1955 that sold for $126,500 and Wil liams Hall of Fame induction ring, which went for nearly $110,000. An 8-year-old Texas boy and his parents were the winning bidders on Williams 1957 Sil ver Bat award, which sold for nearly $195,500, and Williams 1960 All-Star game bat, which went for $80,500. Williams, the last ma jor league hitter to bat .400 posting a .406 average in 1941 enjoyed a diverse life, including as a U.S. Marine in World War II and the Korean War, a member of the sh ing hall of fame and a skilled hunter. He ew 39 combat missions in Korea and took enemy re three times, in cluding during an encoun ter that forced him to land his stricken jet on its belly. Therere not many ele ments of his life that did not exude the same excellence as he did on the baseball eld, said Da vid Hunt, whose company sold the mem orabilia on behalf of Williams daughter, Claudia Williams, of Hernando, Fla. And that is really unique ... Hes sort of like the John Wayne of baseball and sports of that time period and I think that New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who bid by phone, bought Williams World War II and Korean War ight log books for $35,600 and planned to send them to The National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Hunt Auc tions said. The Woolworth building in New York was New Yorks tallest from 1913-30. NEW YORK (AP) One World Trade Center, the giant monolith being built to replace the twin tow ers destroyed in the Sept. 11 attacks, will lay claim to the title of New York Citys tallest skyscraper on Mon day. Workers will erect steel columns that will make its unnished skeleton a little over 1,250 feet high, just enough to peak over the roof of the observation deck on the Empire State Building. The milestone is a pre liminary one. Workers are still adding oors to the so-called Freedom Tow er and it isnt expected to reach its full height for at least another year, at which point it is likely to be declared the tallest building in the U.S., and third tallest in the world. Those bragging rights, though, will carry an asterisk. Crowning the worlds tallest buildings is a little like pick ing the heavyweight champion in boxing. There is often dis agreement about who deserves the belt. In this case, the issue involves the 408-foot-tall needle that will sit on the towers roof. Count it, and the World Trade Center is back on top. Oth erwise, it will have to settle for No. 2, after the Willis Tower in Chicago. Height is complicated, said Nathaniel Hollister, a spokesman for The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitats, a Chicago-based organization considered an au thority on such records. Experts and architects have long disagreed about where to stop measuring super-tall buildings outtted with masts, spires and antennas that extend far above the roof. Consider the case of the Empire State Building: Mea sured from the sidewalk to the tip of its needle-like antenna, the granddaddy of all super-tall skyscrapers actually stands 1,454 feet high, well above the mark being sur passed by One World Trade Center. Purists, though, say antennas shouldnt count when determining building height. An antenna, they say, is more like furniture than a piece of architecture. Like a chair sitting on a rooftop, an antenna can be attached or re moved. The Empire State Building didnt even get its distinctive antenna until 1952. The record books, as the argument goes, shouldnt change every time someone installs a new satellite dish. Excluding the antenna brings the Empire State Buildings total height to 1,250 feet. That was still high enough to make the skyscraper the worlds tallest from 1931 until 1972. From that height, the Empire State seems to tower over the second tallest completed build ing in New York, the Bank of America Tower. Yet, in many record books, the two sky scrapers are separated by just 50 feet. Thats because the tall, thin mast on top of the Bank of America building isnt an antenna, but a decorative spire.

Developer looking to sell south Georgia town TOOMSBORO, Ga. (AP) A developer in south Georgia is looking for someone to buy a small town. Toomsboro, a small community with about 700 residents, has one convenience store, a orist, a custom cabinet shop and a post ofce. The Coastal Courier reports that developer David Bumgardner, who owns many of the properties in town, is putting them on the market. Bumgardner bought some of the properties from preservationist Bill Lucado and snagged others at auction about a decade ago with the intention of turning Toomsboro into a quaint tourist town. But his plans changed. Now Bumgardner and Lucado are putting the town up for sale again. Lucado thinks it would be a perfect t for a movie production company seeking a set or a music company looking for a great venue. Vt. House in resolution: Thanks for the M&Ms MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) The Vermont House has passed a resolution thanking one of its members for the peanut M&Ms. Rep. Ken Atkins, a Winooski Democrat, has carried on a tradition since 1999 in which every time theres a pause in legislative action for a House roll call, he dumps a bunch of M&Ms into a glass jar on his desk and other House members gather around for a snack. The retired teacher says he likes a snack during House action, and he used to tell his students not to bring a snack to class without enough to share. Atkins says he tried putting out plain M&Ms with the peanut ones once, but no one took the plain ones.

Great Lake lampreys destined for queens pie DETROIT (AP) A few unwanted, invasive sea lampreys from the Great Lakes have been shipped to England for use in a traditional pie for Queen Elizabeth II. The Detroit Free Press reports the City of Gloucester, which has given the pie as a gift to the monarch since the Middle Ages, requested the eel-like creatures from the Great Lakes Fishery Commission because theyre a protected species in England. The pie is for Junes Diamond Jubilee, the 60th anniversary of the queens ascent to the throne. Commission spokesman Marc Gaden shipped 2 pounds of frozen lamprey from Lake Huron. He says Great Lakes ofcials would prefer to send them truckloads of lamprey. Lampreys got into the Great Lakes through Atlantic shipping canals in the 1920s and have threatened native sh since. Video: Say no to crack, yes to roller rink RENO, Nev. (AP) A commercial going viral on YouTube tells kids to say no to crack and yes to a Nevada roller rink. The 90-second spot was developed for Roller Kingdom in Reno by comedy duo Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal. It had nearly 240,000 views on YouTube by midday Friday, four days after it was posted online. The campy video features a drug dealer offering pills to a boy, a man trying to lure children into a van with candy, and gang members inviting kids to spray paint bridges. The children tell the bad guys theyd rather be roller skating. Roller Kingdom owner Brad Armstrong tells KRNVTV that the duo offered to produce the commercial for free so they could show it on their cable TV show, Rhett and Link: Commercial Kings. Puppy on runway delays ights at airport NEW YORK (AP) A puppy named Byrdie delayed several ights at New Yorks LaGuardia Airport when she escaped from her crate and frolicked around a busy runway. The Port Authority says the 30-pound Rhodesian ridgeback scampered around the runway for about 10 minutes on Wednesday while authorities unsuccessfully tried to collar her. The agency says they had to nd the poochs owner aboard the Memphis-bound Delta Air Lines Airbus to help catch it. The owner was brought out on to the runway. She called out to the 14-month-old pup and she came running to her. Odd NEWS BURBANK, Calif. (AP) A miracle. Thats the word Al Jardine not-so-jokingly uses to describe the latest Beach Boys reunion this one consisting of himself and fellow founding Beach Boys Brian Wilson and Mike Love, as well as longtime players Bruce Johnston and David Marks. After decades of prolonged separations, legal spats and near reunions, the core Beach Boys are together, both on stage and for an upcoming new album. Their rebirth, which became a reality earlier this year when the group performed Good Vibra tions with Maroon 5 and Foster the People at the Grammys, has reawakened musical memories for 69-year-old Jardine. When Im rehearsing over there, Im hearing stuff I havent performed for many years, Jardine said during a recent break from rehearsals for the iconic bands 50th anniversary tour, which kicked off last week in Tucson, Ariz. Its wonderful to rediscover the music that way. When youre recording three albums a year, as we did in the early days, its yesterdays news, he said. Youre on to the next thing. Boom. That stuff gets parked somewhere though, and now its becoming unveiled again. When the Beach Boys formed in 1961, it was mostly a family affair: school pal Jardine established the group with Wil son and his late brothers, Carl and Dennis, and their cousin, Love. Their breezy tunes and embodiment of freewheeling West Coast sensibilities cap tured the nations attention just before the Beatles invaded the United States, and continued for much of the 1960s with time less songs like I Get Around Surn USA and many more. Following the 1998 death of Carl Wilson, the group frac tured and began moving in different directions. Over the past 20 years, the Beach Boys legacy has been mired in messy conicts that the groups mem bers agreed to squash in honor of their fans and the bands 50th anniversary, a hallmark occa sion even in this jaded age of reboots and comebacks. They sense that we love each other and that we really want to share that love with them (the fans), said 69-yearold Wilson, the visionary song writer of such classics as Help Me Rhonda, Surn USA and California Girls. Wilson, who has released solo albums in re cent years and now speaks with a slight slur, had a turbulent tenure with the Beach Boys, no toriously leaving then returning to the band at one point as he battled mental illness and drug abuse. When it comes to the mu sic, all the pretensions are aside, said 71-year-old Love, who reached a settlement with Jardine in 2008 after launching a lawsuit against him in 2003 over his usage of the Beach Boys name (he also has sued Wilson on more than one occa sion, most recently in 2005). All the egos are aside. Its just all about those group har monies, he added. The effect that it has on ourselves and oth er people is just fantastic. Love said the Beach Boys, who will be supported by a back ing band composed of members from the groups various tour ing entities, have rehearsed more than 50 songs spanning all their albums, including Pet Sounds and Smile. The band noted the biggest challenge has been guring out who is singing lead on which songs, not recap turing their chemistry. The chemistry is there, said 63-year-old Marks, who recorded four Beach Boys al bums and has moved between the bands camps. We pick up right where we left off, especial ly the ve of us together. The magic bubble comes around us. Its the chemistry thats behind all successful bands, like the Beatles and the Stones. It has to be there. Its special for us. The 40-city tour will take the bands members to bigger ven ues than in recent years, includ ing headlining performances at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. To honor Carl and Dennis Wilsons contributions (Dennis died in 1983), the band will play alongside videos of the late founding Beach Boys dur ing a tribute in the show.

After decades of prolonged separations, legal spats and near reunions, the core Beach Boys are back together, both on stage and for an upcoming new album. Good vibes Beach Boys put past differences aside WASHINGTON (AP) This years primaries, the 2008 primaries, the General Ser vices Administration scan dal, even the Secret Service and Donald Trump were targets for President Barack Obamas scattershot humor at Saturday nights celebrity studded White House Cor respondents Dinner. Even the entrance to his speech was part of his schtick. The president walked off stage just before he took the podium with an alleged hot mic, making fun of getting caught last month on an open micro phone with Russian Presi dent Dmitry Medvedev. What am I doing here, he asks off stage. Im open ing for Jimmy Kimmel and telling knock-knock jokes to Kim Kardashian. Once on stage, the presi dent revisited last years dinner, which took place as Navy SEALS were dis patched to capture and kill Osama bin Laden. Last year at this time, this very weekend, we nal ly delivered justice to one of the worlds most notorious individuals, Obama said. Then a picture of real estate mogul Donald Trump ap peared on the rooms tele vision monitors. The presi dent last year delivered a scathing roast of Trump, who irted with running for the Republican nomination and claimed he had solved the mystery of Obamas birth certicate. Obama also took a shot at the Republican congres sional leadership, whom he thanked for taking time from their exhausting schedule of not passing any laws to attend the dinner. Four years ago, Obama recalled, he was locked in a tough primary ght with Hillary Rodham Clinton, now his secretary of state. She cant stop drunk tex ting me from Cartagena, he said, referring to their recent trip to the Summit of the Americas in Colombia, where Clinton was photo graphed drinking a beer and dancing. This year, Obama is the incumbent, but the dinner was far from a campaignfree zone. The president pointed out his similarities with the presumed Republi can nominee, Mitt Romney. We both think of our wives as our better halves, and the American people agree to an insulting ex tent, the president said. We both have degrees from Harvard. I have one, he has two. What a snob. The crack drew a thumbs up from former Pennsyl vania Sen. Rick Santorum, who was in the audience. Santorum dropped out of the presidential primary campaign earlier this month. He had called Obama a snob for encourag ing young Americans to at tend college. But Obama touched on serious themes as well, re membering The New York Times Anthony Shadid and Marie Colvin of the Sunday Times of London who died while covering the uprising in Syria. Never forget that our country depends on you to help protect our freedom, our democracy and our way of life, Obama said. Then he returned to the lighter side: I have to get the Secret Service home in time for their new curfew. Kimmel, the nights fea tured entertainer, picked up on the Secret Service prostitution scandal in Co lombia, saying he told the Secret Service that for $800 he wouldnt joke about them, but they only offered 30. If this had happened on President Clintons watch, you can damn well bet those Secret Service agents would have been disciplined with a very serious high ve, Kim mel said. Obama brings out jokes for Correspondents I have to get the Secret Service home in time for their new curfew.
