Paving progress

Avon Park continues face-lift projects

ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK - The face-'
lift process continues in
Avon Park and Public Works
Director Julian Deleon has
set out his paving schedule
for the rest of the summer.
Deleon laid out an aggres-
sive plan'earlier this year to
resurface 26 roads within the
city, and city council has
approved that plan.
,"The City Council has-
taken bold steps by funding
and reconstructing the city's
roadway system. This infra-
structure investment
improves the level of service
and driving experience for
our residents,'" Deleon said
on Monday.
Deleon has been on the
job for just eight months, but


has pressed for consistent
maintenance of the city's
roadways and utilities
A total of 26 roads will be
resurfaced in Avon Park over
the next few months and
Deleon said that the city is
also repairing some of the


problem flood iniig areai-
inside the city limits as well.
"We are literally looking
at and touching every corner
in A-\ on Park," Deleon said.

SEURING - The U.S. Department
of Agriculture announced on Monday
its plan to buy 26,000 acres for ease-
ment along Fisheating Creek.
The 26,000-acre purchase makes it
one of the largest such acquisitions
by the federal agency through its
Wetlands Reserve Program.
The acquisition is part of the effort
to restore the upper reaches of the
Everglades ecosystem between
Orlando and Lake Okeechobee.


Highlands County Commissioner
Barbara Stewart was present at the
Department of Agriculture's (USDA)
announcement on Monday in
Kissimmee.
"This is a wonderful thing, and a
great preservation attempt. The lands
purchased will be hydrologically
restored, and 'preserved," Stewart
said at the county commission meet-
ing on Tuesday when she made the
announcement.

Officials have
more power,
administrative
fee now in place
By ED BALDRIDGE,
ed.baldridge@newssun.coin
SEBRING - County
Commissioners voted at their
meeting on Tuesday morning
to expand the powers of
county code enforcement
officers to include writing
more citations and added an
administrative fee
for anyone wishing
to contest those cita- f :-
tions.
In a revised docu-
ment handed to com-
missioners minutes
before just before the
meeting, Zoning B
Supervisor Linda
Conrad asked the
board to allow
enforcement officers
to actually write cita-
tions and assign fees.
Exact changes to
the code were not
available, at press Ste'
time, so it is not clear
exactly how many new items
could be cited.
"This morning staff placed
a revised ordinance in front
of each one of you," Conrad
said. "The proposed ordi-
nance is to revise the sched-
ule of violations to include
additional violations to
become part of the Highlands
County Code of Ordinances.
"Basically, most of the
code has not been changed.
All this does is to allow
enforcement officials to
enforce code by writing cita-
tions," Conrad informed
commissioners. "We are not


changing or adding any addi-
tional codes or regulations in
the code of ordinances, this is
just to allow the enforcing
official to write citations to
enforce our code."
The fines an enforcement
officer can levy now, range
from $50 to $500, and a new
chart classifies the fines in
individual classes.
'Commission Chairman
Don Bates showed some
concern about the proposed
changes, stating that the
impact to the public could be
significant, which
would generate a lot
of complaint calls to
commissioners.
- "Linda, you've
made a number of
changes throughout
the chart. You added
S some, deleted some,
and changed some of
the classifications to
the charts. Would you
in general go over and
point out some. of
those that are signifi-
cant because this does
impact the public,"
wart Bates asked.
Commissioner
Barbara Stewart interjected
that the changes to the code
was just hi-,- .; L -.ii.,', and
not significant.
"Mr. Chairman, before we
go on, I thought I heard
Linda say we are not coming
up with anything new. This is
just for more consistency, is
that correct?" Stewart direct-
ed at Conrad.
"That is correct," Conrad
answered.
"OK, so the law's the law.
And it's just that this chart
did not agree with what our

See CODE, page 7A


age amount of easements bought in
one year was 1,700 acres. This is
26,000 acres," Stewart said,.
The ground-breaking $89 million
sale of development rights included
land from five different families,
including a large part of the Blue
Head Ranch, which us owned by
Atlanticblue, a company run by Sen.
J.D. Alexander, R-Lake Wales.
Blue Head Ranch is the 68,000-
acre parcel that is slated for a new
12,000-unit planned community
which is located along State Road 70


nine miles west of Lake Placid.
Fisheating Creek is Okeechobee's
second-largest tributary, after the
Kissimmee River, and the only free-
flowing river emptying into the huge
lake.�
The deal does not buy the 26,000
acres outright, but it does place deed
restrictions on the land forever.
Under the plan, the South Florida
Water Management District would
borrow the money and pay it off with
property tax revenue. The district has
said it would not have to raise taxes.

Resentment washes ashore along with oil


Floridians upset over other'
states' role in drilling
By MATT SEDENSKY
Associated Press Writer
PENSACOLA BEACH - For decades, bil-
lions poured .into Gulf Coast states that
allowed oil drilling off their shores.
Economies grew, jobs were created and mil-
lionaires were born all along the waterfront.
Everywhere, that is, except Florida.
People of all political stripes largely band-
ed together in the Sunshine State. united in
opposition to offshore drilling and confident
the peninsula's $61 billion tourist-driven


economy hinged on a pristine environment.
Fearing the doomsday an accident could bring
- or simply the sight of rigs from beaches -
Florida rejected drilling.
But doomsday came anyway.
As Floridians see their white sand beaches
getting fouled by the spill, many are angry at
their Gulf Coast neighbors'
"They don't have a leg to stand on when it
comes to crying about the oil," said Gregg
Hall, a 48-year-old Pensacola Beach resident
who walks the shore daily looking for signs
of the spill's impact. "They contributed to it."

Prescribed

burns

planned in

Sun 'n Lake

Groundwork will
start this week in
Preserves area
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - At this time,
conditions are optimal for
prescription fire in the Sun 'n
Lake Preserve located at the
end of Sun 'n Lake
Boulevard.
Preparation for the upcom-
ing burns, including mainte-
nance, plowing of existing
fire lanes, some roller chop-
ping in high fuel areas and
other types of groundwork,
will. start this week.
The Sun 'n Lake Preserve
is'a 1,350-acre site composed
of a variety of plant commu-
nities.
Many of the areas within
the Preserve are fire depend-
ent, which means they need
occasional fire to survive and
reproduce. In addition, pre-
scribed fire reduces the threat
of wildfire by reducing fuels
that have built up on the for-
est floor.
Based on plant community
fire requirements and neces-
sary land management sched-
ules, the Preserve has beefi
divided into burn zones.
Those with the highest burn
priority are the units that are
scheduled for prescribed fire
n ithin the next few weeks.
The north\\est .corner and
some of the central portions
of the Preserve are on the
prescription for the planned
burn.
An easterly wind is expect-
ed and smoke should not
hamper residents in the area.
For additional information
please contact Corine
Burgess at 402-6545.

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The Stand Ups for the
Troops Comedy Tour wrapped up its stops
at comedy clubs in Florida this past week-
end to raise money for Lawyers for Warriors
and Duffer's Sports Grille is at the top.
Comedians Rene Bray, of Orlando, and
Johnny Mac, of Jacksonville, performed a
comedy show at Duffer's Sports Grille in
Sebring on July 14 and they were impressed
with the turnout.
"The crowd at Duffer's was by -far the
largest in all of the Florida stops," Bray,
said. "They also raised the most money. The
people in Sebring and at Duffer's are the
most friendliest and the best audience. I'm
not just saying that, I mean it. I love per-
forming in Sebring."
Some of the Florida clubs that were
included in the tour were at Atlantic Beach
near Jacksonville, Lakeland, Cocoa Beach
and St. Petersburg Beach.
"It's great to know that we did better than
any of the bigger cities," Duffer's general
manager Ross Vickers said. "People in
Highlands County really know how to show
their American pride and I am glad we
could do this for our military troops."

Contestants for the
Amazing Race benefiting
The Children's Museum
may have started out in the
city, at Highlands
Independent Bank's main
office, but the event had
them fanning out, through-
out Highlands County
Saturday.
Eight teams of two mem-
bers each had to find 11
clue stations and then
accomplish a task at each of
them.
Ageline DeShazo, a
deposit operations officer
with the bank, and Jennifer
Williams, a HIB bank man-
ager, who formed Team
Highlands Independent
Bank, were the first team to
finish the race.
That however, did not


ensure their win.
In fact, Greg'Harris, CEO
and president of the Greater
Sebring Chamber of
Commerce, and his wife
Janet, were the actual wrni
ners because their final time'"
was closer to the predeter*'
mined time it would take t&d;
complete the race. .
DeShazo said it was iron

largely because she anj
Williams are graduates of

Because of that e\prienence
each knows the area well.

Proposed tax relief amendment under attack


By BILL KACZOR
Associated Press Writer
TALLAHASSEE - Labor
unions and a taxpayer are
challenging a proposed state
constitutional amendment
that would give an extra
property tax break to some
home buyers.
A Tallahassee judge has
scheduled a final hearing
Thursday in the lawsuit seek-
ing to remove Amendment 3
from Florida's November
ballot.
The proposal, which the,
Legislature approved last
year, would give people who
have not owned a home for
at least eight years an added
- but temporary - home-
stead exemption on primary
residences purchased on or
after Jan. 1, 2010.
The Florida AFL-CIO and
Jacksonville resident Brian
K. Doyle say in their lawsuit
that the title and summary
are flawed because they
don't mention the purchase
date.
The plaintiffs also argue
the title says the added
exemption is for "new home-
stead owners" and the sum-
mary refers to "a first-time
homestead" despite the
eight-year provision that
allows previous homeowners
to qualify.
Doyle would not qualify
for the tax break and many
union members are- govern-
ment employees paid from
property taxes that would be
cut by the amendment.
In a written response, the
state says the title and sum-
mary accurately describe the
proposal's chief purpose and
that the purchase date is the
kind of detail not required by
law.
The state also contends the
terms "new homestead own-
ers" and "first-time home-
stead" are commonly under-
stood and that the eight-year
provision is cited in the sum-
mary so it's clear who can
qualify for the tax break.
The amendment would
give those homeowners an
additional exemption of at
least 25 percent in the first


year. It would continue for
four more years but be
reduced incrementally each
of those years.
The purpose is to reduce
some of the disparity in taxes
paid by recent purchasers and
longtime homeowners who
get more benefit from the
Save Our Homes
Amendment.
That 1992 constitutional


provision caps annual assess-
ment increases at 3 percent
for owners of primary homes,
also known as homesteads.
The disparity ' only
increased after voters
approved another tax relief
amendment in 2008 that lets
homeowners take at least part
of their Save Our Homes
benefits with them when they
move.


Another provision in
Amendment 3 would lower a
cap on annual assessment
increases for businesses and
other non-homestead proper-
ties from 10 percent to 5 per-
cent.
It is one of five proposed
constitutional amendments,
out of nine slated for the Nov.
2 ballot, that are being chal-
lenged.

/ grew up on the Gulf Coast. I know these waters. And I'm
doing everything I can to clean them up.
- Fred Lemond, BP Cleanup Operations

BP has taken full responsibility forthe cleanup in the Gulf. And that includes .,
keeping you informed,

Searching For And Cleaning Up The Oil
Every morning, over 50 spotter planes and helicopters search for oil off the ..
coast, heading to areas previously mapped with satellite imagery and infrared
photography. Once oil is found, they radio down to the 6,000 ships and boats'
of all sizes that are supporting the cleanup effort and working to collect the
oil. These are thousands of local shrimping and fishing boats organized into
task forces and strike teams, plus specialized skimmers mobilized from as far
as the .Netherlands.

We have recovered more than 27 million gallons of oil-water mixture from
the Gulf. Other methods have also helped remove millions of additional
gallons of oil from the water. We've deployed more than 8 million feet of
boom to protect beaches and sensitive wildlife areas.

Hurricane Preparedness
In the event of a hurricane, our first priority is keeping people safe. In
coordination with the Coast Guard and local officials, we may suspend
operations temporarily but have organized to resume them as soon as possible.

Our Responsibility
We have already spent more than $3.2 billion responding to the spill and on
the cleanup, and none of this will be paid by taxpayers. We will work in the
Gulf as long as it takes to get this done. We may not always be perfect but
we will do everything we can to make this right.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


It takes a village to balance a budget


S bring City Council's July 15 budget workshop
proved to be an educational and worthwhile
process. We commend all council members for a
thoughtful discussion that considered the city's short-
term fiscal situation in depth.


The first, and perhaps most important
point, is the need to be honest when bal-
ancing a budget.
c We are not talking about embezzle-
ment here - rather the need for a clear
eye and firm grasp of reality.
L For example, city council members
, John Clark and Scott Stanley repeatedly
. said that using rainy day funds to bal-
[ ance the budget did not in fact balance
the budget, because the city winds up
. with fewer funds even though its bills
. are paid.
On the other hand, as council mem-
bers Margie Rhoades and John Griffin
repeatedly said, with the city at a point
in the process where further cuts would
not come close to balancing the budget
this year - the shortfall being $700,000
- the city had no' recourse but to reach
into the rainy day fund.
After all, Rhoades and Griffin said,
given the economic storm drenching
everyone, using the rainy day fund to
pay bills or keep employees on the job
full time not only made sense, it was
using the funds for the very reason they
were created - surviving a rainy day.



Scott, nor Rubio, deserve a
bumper sticker
Editor:
It was shocking to see a "Rick Scott"
bumper sticker in Highlands County
today. After the excellent coverage of
* his visit by your newspaper, it is unbe-
lievable that anyone in Highlands
-County can relate this message.
Mr. Scott believes that health care
should be a commodity. That means
"buyer beware" and businesses get to
* profit on your health or lack of it. Do
'you want industry gambling on your
health, betting on it, for better'or
worse, and trying to make profits on
whether you live or die?
"''Mr. Scott's company became a con-
glomerate that perpetrated the largest
Medicaid/Medicare fraud on our feder-
al government in history. That fraud
was upon you and me anfd our tax dol-
lars. $1.7 billion was paid in the settle-
re" Ient to our government. He got off
"Scott free" and is no.w using his for-
tune to hack his tarnished goods to the
state of Florida.
Anyone making less that $250,000 a
Year and without significant invest-
g ments in pharmaceuticals, insurance
- and hospital stocks has no business vot-
;3 ing for the likes of Mr. Scott, or Mr.
r Rubio for that matter. They both want
less responsibility and less taxes for the
rich, and more burdens to the poor.
There are very few in this county who
qualify to benefit from this kind of pol-
icy.
They couch their special interests in
anti-government slogans. Well,
Medicare and Medicaid work quite
well. Neither private industry nor Mr.
Scott have contributed to that, and Mr.
Scott's interest has bilked these pro-
grams for private profit. He is a huck-
ster and Rubio offers as his policy the
same recipe that got us into this m6ss.
Neither deserves a bumper sticker, let
alone a vote.

Is harmony on the back
burner?
Editor:
There has been a. lot of debate about
the separation of church and state, but
missing from the debate is civilization.
But what is civilization? According
. to Webster, 1. Civilizing or being civi-
lized 2. The total culture of a people,
period etc. 3. The peoples considered to
have reached a high social develop-
ment. Civility; 1.politeness 2. Courtesy
3. A civil or polite act.
Are we really civilized? If you said
yes you haven't read the newspaper or '
listened to the radio or watched TV for
a while.
In order to solve any problem, the
cause of the problem must be found. I


We think both points of view are cor-
rect.
Clark and Scott are absolutely right
- the city is going to have to find cre-
ative ways to live within its means,
especially now that the city has less
means at its disposal.
But with a reserve available, it was
the wise choice to provide short-term
continuity.
As we move on, however, we need to
remember we are in much the same sit-
uation as any two earner family is when
one of the earners loses their job.
We have to adapt to reduced circum-
stances.
This is more complicated for a city
than a family, however, what with feder-
al, state and county mandates.
Regardless of conservative or liberal
points of view, there is a solemn social
contract between a government and its
electors. Issues of safety - from police
protection against crime to stable road
beds to the removal of garbage from city
streets - have to be fulfilled.
.Then there are those tax payers who
demand their money's worth in the form

have chosen to start with our ancestors
before they became civilized.'
If we look at today's wild animals,
we find that anything goes. They are
selfish, greedy, deceitful, and anything
else that promotes their survival. They
also use violence to establish a "peck-
ing order or their attempt to become the
alpha male. Is human behavior any dif-
ferent?
Today's humans have a great imagi-
nation. Look at all the stories that have
been written such as "Harry' Potter,"
"Wizarq of Oz," "Star Trek,", and many,
many more. Did our ancestors possess
that trait?
When and how did civilization
begin?
Some form of communication had to
be in place so as to transmit the belief
of one generation to the next. Just how
did the beliefs get started? Thunder and
lighting can be pretty menacing, and
not understanding nature, assumed that.
a spirit had caused it and that it was
because of their action that displeased
the spirit. As time went on more and
more phenomenon's were seen as
caused by spirits which modified their
actions. Because of their beliefs, "a
crude form of religion" civilization was
started..
By the time recorded history was
started religion was well established.
And each nation had their own religion.
With the same ideology the people had
no problem with celebrating religious
holidays. There was no one to complain
that it was held on government proper-
ty.,
When Christianity first appeared
there was little tolerance for the new
religion. As a matter of fact there was
little tolerance for any thing new. Up to


of services and infrastructure - like
well-trained employees at the utility
office or a lakeside public beach.
It made sense this year to reach into
the rainy day fund to stay within the law
- a "balanced" budget being mandated
- but we need to remember the budget
was not truly balanced. For that we need
to do more, including sacrifice.
While still a year away, it is already
time to be thinking about the 2011-2012
budget. By then we have to find a way
to make expenditures match revenues.
Some creative ideas have already
been introduced for discussion, coinci-
dentally both having to do with the fire
department - shutting down an
overnight shift or stopping the fire
department from responding to medical
calls - but much more needs to be
done.
We strongly feel savings can be found
without resorting to cutting jobs or
hours.
But finding ways to economize will
take all of us, not just our elected repre-
sentatives. Ideas of how to do things
more efficiently and for less money are
what is needed now. Of course, the final
decisions have to be made by the indi-
vidual council members, but the more
suggestions from which to choose, the
better the chance for fair and workable
solutions.


this time, religion was government
sponsored and would continued until.
our constitution. Our founding fathers
took the government out of religion
while allowing religion in government. .
"Congress shall make no laws respect-
ing an establishment of religion or pro-
hibiting the free exercise thereof;"
Even today, religions are keeping
civil in civilization that is most reli-
gions. After all, what we believe in
guides our lives. Civilization hasn't
been around long enough that we can
not eliminate intensive training of the
young to subdue our animal instincts.
Multi-culture and diversity are fine if
we develop a thick skin. Our country is
a republic where the majority rule with
protection of the minority. Sometimes
the minority rule through the misread-
ing of the constitution. When the
minority wants the majority to stop a
pageantry etc. and the only reason is
that i, taxes their sensitivity, then har-
mony is put on the back burner.

I formerly thought that the
primary qualification neces-
sary for serving in President
Obama's Cabinet was a
refusal to pay taxes.
Treasury Secretary
Geithner--the most notori-
ous of a string of tax
scoundrels-cheated on his
income, taxes for four con-
secutive years.
It now appears that there
is an equally important, crite-
rion for Cabinet positions-
an inability or refusal to read
the law, especially if that
law concerns the relevant
Department, and especially
if the Cabinet member criti-
cizes the law..
Homeland Security
Secretary Janet Napolitano
said she would have vetoed
the new Arizona immigration
law, pronounced it "a
shame," and then admitted
she had not read it. Attorney
General Eric Holder said
that the Justice Department
was considering a federal
lawsuit against the law, and
then admitted he had not
read it. Perhaps he actually
read it prior to filing suit
against Arizona.
Of course, those criticisms
are tepid compared to some
of the more bizarre accusa-
tions. Cardinal Roger
Mahony-the moral arbiter
best known for his efforts at
covering up the rapes of
altar boys-accused Arizona
of "reverting to German
Nazi and Russian
Communist techniques."
The provisions that have
drawn the most attention and
vituperation are those requir-
ing aliens to carry identifica-
tion with them and authoriz-
ing police officers to stop
those whom they have a
"reasonable suspicion" of
being in the country illegal-,
ly. Since both the Attorney
General and DHS Secretary
cannot be troubled to read
the law, allow me to explain
it to them.
Under current law, for-
eigners in this country must
carry identification with
them, and law enforcement
officers are able to ask the
status of anyone whom they
have a reasonable suspicion
of being in this country ille-
gally. If the Arizona law
takes effect, foreigners in
this country must carry iden-
tificatioh with them, and law
enforcement officers will be
able to ask the status of any-
one whom they have a rea-
sonable suspicion of being in
this country illegally. Do
you see the difference?
The difference is that the
decades-old standards of
federal law will now be part
of state law. Aliens have
been required to carry identi-
fication for over half a cen-
tury. In fact, the Arizona law
imposes no new require-
ment; it simply authorizes
state officers to determine


Guest
Column
Ric Oberlink
"whether the person is in
compliance with the federal
registration laws."
While the term "reason-
able suspicion" may sound
like an arbitrary, contrived
phrase to the uninitiated, it
is a term familiar to any
first-year law student-even
if it perplexes Attorney
General Holder. Reasonable
suspicion to detain a suspect
is something police use on a
daily basis, and the Supreme
Court adopted it as the
appropriate legal standard in
1968 in Terry v. Ohio.
The reasonable suspicion
standard applies to illegal
immigration just as it applies
to other illegal acts, and
there is a plethora of court
cases reviewing the actions
of law enforcement officers.
In U.S. v. Brignoni-Ponce,
the Supreme Court ruled that
officers could not stop a car
just because its occupants
appeared to be of Mexican
descent, but "any number of
factors may be taken into
account in deciding whether
there is reasonable suspicion
to stop a car...."
Since the Arizona law
merely incorporates federal
standards, one might reason-
ably expect that entities that
have announced a boycott of
the state-such as Los
Angeles, San Francisco, and
San Diego-will also boy-
cott the federal government
.and refuse to accept any fed-
eral funds... but do not hold
your breath. Arizona's critics
do not really want enforce-
ment of immigration laws.
Since it is difficult to con-
vince a beleaguered public
that local officers should not
enforce the law, especially
when the federal government
has failed miserably in its
obligation to do so, it is eas-
ier to rant about racial pro-
filing.
Alas, for Arizona's detrac-
tors, American citizens are
not so easily fooled. They
realize that it makes no more
sense to ignore violation of
our laws against illegal
immigration because of spu-
rious charges of racial profil-
ing than it does to ignore
violation of our laws against
rape because of spurious
charges of gender profiling.
In spite of all the outlandish
invective, the Associated
Press poll found almost
twice as many people sup-
port the Arizona law as
oppose it.

AP-Univision Poll: US

Hispanics mix hopes, strains


By ALAN FRAM and
CHRISTINE ARMARIO
Associated Press Writers
MIAMI - Hispanics
worry more than most
Americans about losing
jobs and paying bills. But
they place a high impor-
tance on education and
expect their children to go
to college - even if most
of them don't expect the
United States to elect a
Latino president in the next
20 years.
An Associated Press-
Univision poll of more than
1,500 Latinos shows them
eager to blend into
American society while
still holding onto their cul-
tural identity. They are
likewise torn between
hopes for tomorrow and
daily doses of financial
stress.
"The situation is bad
now, but I have faith that
this is going to change,"
says Yadilka Aramboles, a
32-year-old Miamian from
the Dominican Republic.
She eyes her three young
children playing on the
sidewalk and sees college
in their future - even
though her husband's mod-
est accountant's income
barely covers fhe family's
most basic expenses.
"For me and my chil-
dren, I aspire to something
more," Aramboles says.


America's 47 million
Hispanics face acute eco-
nomic and political pres-
sures.
The recession that erased
millions of jobs has taken
an especially heavy toll on
Latinos, whose average
income is lower than many
other groups. And the
Hispanic community has
been jolted by election-sea-
son debate over the coun-
try's estimated 11 million
illegal immigrants, a debate
that has increased in inten-
sity following Arizona's
enactment of a law that
,requires police, while
enforcing other laws, to
question a person's immi-
gration status if officers
have a reasonable suspicion
he or she is in the country
illegally.,
About three-quarters of
the nation's illegal immi-
grants are Hispanic,
according to the nonparti-
san Pew Hispanic Center.
The poll, also sponsored
by The Nielsen Company
and Stanford University,
shows that Hispanics have
complex beliefs about how
best to fit into America.
Just over half, 54 per-
cent, say it is important that
they change to assimilate
into society, yet about 66
percent, say Latinos should
maintain their distinct cul-
ture.

Is experimental well cap making disaster worse?


By COLLEEN LONG and MATTHEW
DALY
Associated Press Writers
NEW ORLEANS - Scientists hud-
dled Tuesday to analyze data from the
ocean floor as they weigh whether a
leaking well cap is a sign BP's broken
oil well is buckling.
Oil and gas started seeping into the
Gulf of Mexico again Sunday night, but
this time more slowly, and scientists
aren't sure whether the leaks mean the
cap that stopped the flow last week is
making things worse.
The government's point man on the
disaster, retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad
Allen, will decide again later Tuesday
whether to continue the test of the
experimental cap - meaning the oil
would stay blocked in.
He said Monday the amount of oil
leaking was so far inconsequential. But
ever since the flow of oil was closed off
Thursday, engineers have been glued to
underwater cameras and pressure and
seismic readings, trying to determine
whether the cap is displacing pressure
and causing leaks underground, which
could make the sea bed unstable and
cause the well to collapse.
"As a condition of moving forward
with the well-integrity test, BP has to
report to us any anomalies and act on
those within four hours," Allen said
Monday.
Seepage from the sea floor also was
detected over the weekend less than two
miles away, but Allen said it probably
has nothing to do with the well. Oil and
gas are known to ooze naturally from
fissures in the bottom of the Gulf of
Mexico.
At a Monday afternoon briefing in
Washington, Allen said BP could keep


the cap closed at least another 24 hours,
as long as the company remained alert
for leaks.
For those whose livelihood depends
on clean waters, worries about the cap
were tempered by relief that the oil
stopped gushing.
"I'm for anything that will stop the oil
from coming," said Capt. Ty Fleming,
who runs charter fishing trips in Orange
Beach, Ala. said Tuesday. "I guess when
you've got how many million gallons
pouring out before, and now you have
less, it's like comparing a coconut hit-
ting you in the head with a raisin. The
raisin would be insignificant."
BP and the government had been at
odds over the company's desire to sim-
ply leave the cap in place and employ it
like a giant cork in a bottle until a relief
well being drilled deep underground can
be used to plug up the well permanently.
Allen initially said his preference was
to pipe oil through the cap to tankers on
the surface to reduce the slight chance
that the buildup of pressure inside the
well would cause a new blowout. That
plan would require releasing millions
more gallons of oil into the ocean for a
few days during the transition - a spec-
tacle BP apparently wants to avoid.
On Monday, Allen budged a bit, say-
ing unless larger problems develop, he's
not inclined to open the cap.
Also on the table: Pumping drilling
mud through the top of the cap and into
the well bore to stop up the oil flow. The
idea is similar to the failed top kill plan
that couldn't overcome the pressure of
the geyser pushing up.
BP said it could work -now because
there's less oil to fight against, but it
wasn't clear how such a method would
affect the cap's stability. Allen said the


relief well was still the plan for a perma-
nent fix.
BP and the government are still trying
to understand why pressure readings
from the well are lower than expected.
Allen offered two possible explanations:
The reservoir the oil is gushing from is
dwindling, or there is an undiscovered
leak somewhere down in the well.
Work on a permanent plug is moving
steadily, with crews drilling into the side
of the ruptured well from deep under-
ground. By next week, they could start
blasting in mud and cement to block off
the well for good. Killing the well deep
underground works more reliably than
bottling it up with a cap.
Somewhere between 94 million and
184 million gallons have gushed into the
Gulf over the past three months in one
of America's worst environmental
crises.
BP PLC said the cost of dealing with
the spill has now reached nearly $4 bil-
lion. The company said it has made pay-
ments totaling $207 million to settle
claims for damages. Almost 116,000
claims have been submitted and more
than 67,500 payments have been made.
BP stock was down slightly Monday.
"I'm hoping that they'll get every-
thing cleanup with the next one to two
years. Let's things will get back to nor-
mal," said Terry Lash, manager of Doc's
Seafood Shack & Oyster Bar in Orange
Beach, Ala. "We're hurting really bad,
but there are other restaurants that are
worst than we are."

Daly reported from Washington. Associated
Press writers Erica Werner in Washington,
David Dishneau in New Orleans and
Phuong Le in Orange Beach, Ala., con-
tributed to this report.

Stewart asked.
"Thit's correct." Conrad
again answered "Basically, it
corrects some of the items with
just changes in the title. Now
we have different class num-
bers from one to four. A first
offense would now be $50, a
second offense would now be
$100, third offense would be
$250 and a fourth offense
would be $500," Conrad
explained.
"If you have a particular
item, basically these are in the
new code ... I would be happy
to answer any questions, unless
you want to go through each
item," Conrad said.
Bates asked why the
changes concerning commer-
cial aspects were now differ-
ent.
Conrad explained that cur-
rently, code enforcement offi-
cers could not write citations or
levy fines.
"I would suggest that this
does make a difference as far
as residents are concerned,"
Bate responded.


Stewart insisted that the new
citations were not changes, but
just clarification.
"These were always
enforced, just enforced differ-
ently," Stewart stated.
Ramon Gavarette,
Highlands County engineer,
told commissioners that the
changes would' now allow the
county to pressure local busi-
nesses to come into compli-
ance with county enforcement.
"Section 12 of your code is
basically part of your Land
Development Regulations. For
example, the landscaping at
Home Depot has basically
been allowed to go away. We
have not been successful in
bringing that site into compli-
ance. We were not able to
enforce them to do it. All we
could do was send them letters
and ask them to do it. Now we
will be able to enforce them to
do it," Gavarette said.
"Eventually, this could allow
us to bring that site into com-
pliance, and there are other
sites that need to be brought
into compliance."

Oil spill leads to resentment from Floridians


Continued from page 1A
Panhandle over slumping tourist dollars.
a fishing industry that has been ham-
strung, and the possibility of plunging
property values. And while much of it is
aimed at BP and the government, there
is recognition that the decisions made
by neighboring states have hurt Florida.
"I love Alabama and Mississippi and
Louisiana, but it's Florida first for me,"
said Gov. Charlie Crist, who has ordered
a special legislative session to consider
a constitutional amendment that would
let voters decide whether to permanent-
ly ban offshore drilling in state waters.
"Here is the single loudest wake-up call
ever as to why we've done that in
Florida: Because it is not risk free."
Grover Robinson, a commissioner in
Escambia County, home to Pensacola,
said Florida should get any aid first
because it had no role in the catastrophe.
"I know we're all in it together," he
said.."But Florida's injuries are greater
because we don't do this stuff."
All the other Gulf Coast states -
Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and
Texas - have drilling operations off
their coasts. Louisiana, which produces
the vast majority of oil in the Gulf, has
allowed drilling since 1947.
"They made that decision to do what
they've done over the years," said P.C.
Wu, a city councilman, in Pensacola,
where oil has washed onto the beaches,
causing some tourists to flee. "What's
happened here is going to cost a lot of
money but it's something that we were
completely opposed to."
Tourism is Florida's top industry,
drawing about 81 million visitors a year,
employing more than 1 million people
and accounting for 21 percent of sales
tax revenues in a state that has. no
income tax.
Beaches in the Florida Panhandle, the
only ones so far affected by the spill,
have long drawn visitors to their sugary
white sands.
Tourism is important to the other Gulf
states hit by the spill, but it's not the
dominant industry, as it is in Florida.
Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana
drew a combined 63 million tourists last
year, according to state figures, generat-
ing $23.2 billion in spending. '
State and federal laws govern who
controls different parts of the Gulf. In

A boom lies in place at Mexico Beach in the Panhandle as bathers still enjoy the
waters of the Gulf of Mexico.


Alabama control an area extending
about 3.5 miles off their shores while
Texas and Florida claim about 10.4
miles off their coastlines.
In Florida, some companies had leas-
es to drill off the Panhandle before a
1981 federal moratorium on new off-
shore drilling. They were grandfathered
in and continued their activity off and
on into the early 1990s. -
But by and large, Florida's leaders
have stood against drilling in the last
several decades, regardless of their
political party affiliation.
"People really value our beaches and
our coastal economy," said Eric Draper,
executive director of Audubon of
Florida. "It just .was considered a
mandatory for political leadership here
to be against oil drilling off Florida's
-coast."
That began to change two years ago
as gas prices reached $4 a gallon. Crist,
who in his 2006 gubernatorial run
opposed any drilling off the coast, said
in 2008 he was more open to the idea as
he campaigned with ,the Republican
presidential nominee, Sen., John
McCain. A year later, he shifted even
further, saying he was "open minded"
about a bill that would have allowed-rigs
within a few miles of beaches.
But then the Deepwater Horizon
explosi6p happened April 20. Now,

Will tourists return to

Panhandle when oil stops?


By MATT SEDENSKY
Associated Press Writer
PENSACOLA BEACH
- Efforts to cap the oil
well. are under way. But
even if they are successful
at stopping the gusher, the
tourist-dependent Florida
.Panhandle now faces the
hurdle of luring visitors
back to a coastline that still
could see tar balls wash
ashore.
Businesses along the
emerald-water coast fear
the technical know-how
being used to plug the run-
away Gulf of Mexico well
won't be enough to salvage
its peak tourist season, with
images of oily beaches still
fresh in travelers' minds.
The entire Panhandle has
reported sluggish business
even though its exposure to
the. spill has mostly been
limited to its western end,
near Pensacola. Even there,
beaches have' been mostly
clean for the last two
weeks, with scattered
reports of tar balls and
other oil.
But even with the flow
stopped, cleanup remains,
and winds and currents
could still bring the mess
back to Florida.
"To try and inject confi-
dence into the market
between now and the
remaining 45 days of sum-
mer will be almost impossi-
ble," said Julian
MacQueen, owner of a
Hilton and a Hampton Inn
-on Pensacola Beach.
MacQueen estimates he's
lost $3 million so far.
between his Pensacola
Beach hotels and two oth-
ers in Orange Beach, Ala.
He says he'd like to think
that once the massive leak
is fully stopped, tourists
will return in force, but he
doesn't believe it will hap-
pen.
Even though recent
reports, of oil activity on
Pensacola's -coastline have
been relatively minor, visi-


tors are still subjected to
backhoes and bulldozers
parked on beaches, workers
in hazmat suits taking
water samples, and, at night,
crews with headlamps
scouring the sands with.
shovels and sifters, looking
for tar balls.
Farther east, at the
Sandestin Golf and Beach
Resort, marketing manager
Laurie Hobbs said it will be
impossible to make up the
loss of business, but that
she's optimistic loyal cus-
tomers will return.
"We had a very success-
ful spring and we would
have- continued that
momentum, but we will
never see the full momen-
tum that we saw going into
spring. We'll never see it
this summer," she said.
"But we'll just turn our
marketing engines to try
and regroup. We can get
people back to the beach
and we can get people back
to where they love."
Destin and' Fort Walton
Beach tourism officials
have been appealing to the
families that *visit summer
after summer to continue
their traditions. The

paign highlights the

along with golf, back-bay

drilling in the state.
Florida's long-standing wariness of
offshore drilling has allowed a feeling
of martyrdom to creep in to this state
where, in hindsight, the decision to keep
oil rigs away from the shoreline seems
. pretty smart.
"When something goes wrong with
one of those oil rigs it doesn't just affect
those states that have basically been
selling out to the oil industry," said
Kenneth Welch, a commissioner in
Pinellas County, farther south along the
Gulf Coast on the Tampa Bay. "We
won't know for years, I think, what the
real impact is, not only to tourism and
to our, tourism-based economy, but the
impact of a million gallons of disper-
sant."
Dave Rauschkolb founded the anti-
drilling group Hands Across The Sand,
after .the issue came up in the state
,Legislature. He owns three Panhandle
restaurants along the beach, is a lifelong
. surfer and an avid fisherman. The deci-
sions of other Gulf states, he says, are
motivated by money, but have a far
wider effect.
"There are some things that we need
to see not only in economic terms. The
soul of America is being lost because of
things being seen only in economic
terms," he said. "They'd have to be
blind and deaf to not see how their
actions affect the other Gulf states."

show helps troops

back into perspective," Bray
said.
Inside one representative
from1 Duffer's welcomed
everyone at the door dressed
in an Uncle Sam outfit and
handed out American flags
and patriotic beads. It set the
mood for everyone.
Several retired military
personnel attended the show
and met with Bray afterward
to thank her for her efforts to
help the troops.
Bray explained to the audi-
ence that the comedians are
raising money to help with
legal services for the men
and women who are fighting
for this country. Some of
them are experiencing legal
battles back home, like fore-
closures, while they are in
combat. Although there are
several attorneys donating
their time and doing the work
pro bono, 'there are certain
court costs that cannot be
donated. The non-profit
group Lawyers for Warriors
is helping to raise money for
those court costs.
So far, Bray reported that
more than $1,000 has been
raised and the tour has just
begun. They started July 13
and will now be flying across
the country to places in
Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio
and , Minnesota. Overall,

Miller expecting plenty of



open shots with Heat


By TIM REYNOLDS
Associated Press
MIAMI - With just
about every Miami Heat
Acquisition this summer,
another recruiting story
seems to emerge.
Dwyane Wade helped lure
LeBron James and Chris
Bosh.
James played a big role in
talking Zydrunas Ilgauskas
and Mike.Miller into coming
to Miami.
And now, it's Miller tak-
ing a turn.
Only days after signing
with Miami himself, Miller
is talking to close pal Jason
Williams about reuniting
with the team he started at
point guard for during
Miami's championship sea-
son in 2006.
"I'd love to have him,"
said Miller, who spoke
Sunday to Williams.
'Obviously, it has to work
out 'on both sides. J-Will
would have to want to come
back and Miami would have
to be good with that. I just
talked to him more as a
friend, just to see how he's

Newly acquired Mike Miller knows he'll see plenty of open shots with the Heat in the
upcoming season.


doing and what he's thinking
about doing. I'm just excited
for him. He had an unbeliev-
able year last year and we'll
see what happens in the
future here."
It- might be a long shot,
getting Williams back to


Miami.
Fortunately for the Heat,
Miller didn't need much
convincing.
He agreed to a deal with
Miami shortly after James
said he was coming to join
Wade and Bosh.


Like at least four other
placer- - James, \\ade,
Bosh and Udonis Haslem -

With the just completed
dual state tournaments held
at the Max Long Recreational
Complex, itmight seem that
local Dixie Bawseball action
has come to an end. -
But it's not just the young-
sters who still had some
baseball life left in the sum-
mer, as the Sebring Ozone
team prepares for its' trip to
the Dixie World Series in
South Carolina less than two
weeks off.
The Sebring Pre-Majors
(16-under) squad and the
Avon Park Majors (19-under)
team took .part in their
respective state tournaments
this past weekend at the
Chain O'Lakes complex in
Winter Haven.
The Streaks had a tougher
go of it, dropping their open-
er Saturday to Citrus to fall
into the consolation bracket
and then getting bounced by
Springstead in Monday's
elimination contest.
Avon Park, meanwhile,
was having a better time of it,
winning Saturday over Ridge
Manor and then edging
Hernando by a 7-5 score
Sunday to set up a Monday
affair with Polk County.
And while Polk had
topped Marion County in
Saturday's opener, they had-
n't exactly torn the cover off
the ball in the 1-0 win.
But Highlands' neighbors
to the north came with their
hitting shoes Monday in a
12-1 win over the Devils.
Seven doubles highlighted
their 12 hits on the day with
Kyle Chastain driving in

P Yes. NASCAR officials have
encouraged rivalries both in
meetings - we hesitate to call
them "town meetings" because
the term implies public access
- and with rule changes. But
each driver is responsible for
his own actions.
P Rivalries can be produc-
tive or destructive. The Carl
Edwards Brad Keselowski spat
appears to have crossed the
line from the former to the
latter.
[ D Edwards and Keselowski
are young men in a hurry. Each
stands in the other's way, and
therein lies the rub.
D Chairman Brian France
says NASCAR is considering
limitations on Sprint Cup drivers
competing in Nationwide Series
races. Is It really positive when a
Cup regular wins the Nationwide
title every year?
0 The NASCAR version of
"Sink the BismarcK," for the
next seven races, is "Make the
Chase." Perhaps at the end, the
equivalent of a victory cry will
be, "We're No. 121"
0 Two drivers have combined
to win the past five Sprint Cup
races at Indianapolis Motor
Speedway. Jimmie Johnson has
won three and Tony Stewart two.
Johnson has won the past two.
� A speeding penalty
prevented Juan Pablo Montova
from winning last year's race.
One of NASCAR's major myster-
ies is why Montoya has won only
once and not since 2007.
0 Hoosiers Jeff Gordon and
Tony Stewart have combined to
win six of the 16 NASCAR races
at Indy. That probably makes an-
other, Ryan Newman, envious.
P No official estimate was
announced when NASCAR first
raced at Indy in 1994, but
many stories listed the crowd
at 300.000 or more. The 2009
estimate was 180.000. Some
track sources have suggested
they will be pleased with a
crowd in the 150.000 range this
year.
� Out of the season's first 19
races, only five have boasted
higher TV ratings than their
2009 equivalents: Phoenix.,
Talladega, Darlington. Charlotte
and the second Daytona race.

High Hopes For Jeff


Former Cup champ high in standings without a victory


By Monte Dutton
NASCAR This Week


Jeff Gordon's hometown could
be considered Vallejo, Calif., where
he was born, or Pittsboro, Ind.,
where he grew up.
Based on his record there, India-
napolis Motor Speedway is another
place where Gordon feels right at
home. He has won NASCAR's an-
nual visit to the Brickyard a record
four times. (As an aside, Gordon has
won five times at Infineon Raceway,
the track closest to his birthplace.)
The most recent Indy victory for
Gordon occurred in 2004. In the five
races since, Jimmie Johnson has
won three times and Tony Stew-
art twice. Forty-eight races have
passed since Gordon's most recent
victory anywhere. He won at Texas
Motor Speedway onApril 5,2009.


Still, a winless Gordon is better Waltrip and Cale Yarbrough - have

Keselowski Edwards
BRAD KESELOWSKI VS CARL EDWARDS
Has this gotten out of hand? Edwards won
the Nationwide Series event at Gateway
International Raceway at Keselowski's
expense, turning his Ford into Keselowski's
Dodge and touching off a huge crash on the
final lap. To Edwards, it was returning the..,
favor for being roughed up by Keselowski a
few moments earlier. Bob Keselowski, Brad's
father, threatened to take the matter into his
own hands and said Edwards was "trying to
kill my son."
NASCAR This Week's Monte Dutton
gives his take: "Rivalries can be functional;
but not when taken to this extreme. Edwards
and Keselowski need to resolve this, or it will ,
be destructive to both's careers."

Dear NASCAR This Week, %-'-
I am writing to ask three questions. I am an'
avid fan of NASCAR.
(1.) I am going to the race in Kansas City'
in October. I have an infield pass.to see the
cars. I was wondering if the drivers will be out .l':.
to see (the fans). We went to KC to the Truck
race in May. We could see the trucks (but)
there were no drivers out. . :, .
(2.) The drivers used to have a commercial
about a pin you could get It was for children's
funds. Anyway, I went online to order it, too.,..
I couldn't find them anywhere on any NASCAR
thing. Could you tell me how to get them?
(3.) Does Mark Martin have a fan club?
He's my favorite driver.
Linda Brown
lola, Kan. ,.

Most of the drivers reside in motor coaches
in the infield, but they don't often venture
"out to see the fans." They do often make
appearances at their souvenir trailers, other. '
track autograph sessions and at nearby
businesses. Check the area newspapers. We
think the pin you mention is associated with
NASCAR Day. For the pin, go to http://foun-
dation.nascar.com. We looked for information
about Mark Martin's fan club with conflicting
results. There's some question about whether
the club remains active. For more information,'
go to www.markmartin.com, his official site, or
an unofficial site, www.markmartin. org.

Burton: Driver's perspective not always the best


By Monte Dutton
NASCAR This Week-

Asked about changes that might
be on the horizon in both the Sprint
Cup schedule and the Chase for-
mat, Jeff Burton admitted that he
was a bit jaded.
"My perspective is different than
other people's perspective," he said.
"My perspective is that I'm a race-car
driver, and I care about the sport and
the well-being of the sport, but I don't-
view it from the same eyes as the fans.
"I have to be careful. When I
say that something is better for
the sport, a lot of times I'm think-
ing about it from a competitor's


I : [ 7" 1F-=::"; -r17.''"
standpoint because I'm not sitting
in the stands. I think by far, from a
quality-of-race standpoint, the dou-
ble-file restarts (and other changes)
have enhanced the sport."

Hefty share of the million - Leg-
ends racing originated at Charlotte
Motor Speedway, and racing the
miniaturized, entry-level vehicles
reached a crescendo with last week-
end's Legends Million, which CMS
touted as "the largest grass-roots
race in history."
The total purse was $1 million.
Daniel Hemric, of Kannapolis, N.C.,


won $250,000 for his victory in the
A-Feature on July 17 on the quarter-
mile track in the superspeedway's
tri-oval area.
Doug Stevens, the fastest quali-
fier, finished second, followed by
Steven Cantrell, Cup regular David
Ragan and Tyler Green.

Numero dos - Kyle Busch said
the Daytona 500 is NASCAR's most
important race but rated the Brick-
yard 400 second.
"It's number two; it's right there,"
he said. "Daytona is one, Indy is two
... they're both pretty close to each
other. Daytona pays a little bit more
because NASCAR has to do that.


"Indy is an important race track for a
lot of people. The history... has all been
Indy cars, but still... there's a lot there
that everyone always wants to win."

M
Wants it - Kevin Harvick, who
won Indy in 2003, said it's a race
every driver yearns to win.
"It's kind of the second place,
where you check off on the year,
where you want to try to win the
race, next to Daytona,"' said Har-
vick. "Growing up a fan of Indy cars
and really wanting to race open-
wheel cars ... to be able to win there
- and just to compete there - is
pretty cool."

LAS VEGAS - Floyd
Mayweather Jr. lives in
what he calls his Big Boy
house, a $9.5 million golf
course mansion he likes to
show off whenever HBO
trots out its "24/7" show to
promote his fights.
If you've ever spent
$59.95 for one of those
fights, you helped pay for it.;
Nothing wrong with that,
though it's not likely to get
you an invitation to the pool
parties out back that always
seem to get the neighbors
talking.
' But now it's time for
fMay weather to leave the
pool and head for the gym.
Time to drop all the
excuses and 'stop all the
procrastinating.
Time to finally fight
;,Manny Pacquiao.
The date is already set;
the money already there.
The issues that stopped
them from fighting in
March no longer seem to be
such big issues.
Yet Mayweather remains
a reluctant warrior at best.
And nobody can seem to
figure; out why.
"I'm as baffled as any-
one," promoter Bob Arum
said.
Mayweather hasn't
offered much insight him-
self, telling The Associated
Press on Sunday that he was
enjoying being on vacation
and enjoying hanging out
� with his family and friends.
Making another $40 mil-
lion or so, he said, would
have to wait.
"I'm not interested in
Rushing to do anything,"
Mayweather said.
SMaybe he ought to be.
Because it's beginning to
1 look to a lot of boxing fans
like Mayweather just does-
n't want to fight Pacquiao.
He certainly didn't want
to fight in Marchibut at
least then he had an excuse.
Mayweather wanted
Olympic-style blood testing
and refused all efforts to
compromise on the issue.


That excuse doesn't work
Anymore.
Arum, who is Pacquiao's
promoter, says his fighter
will accept any blood test-
ing Mayweather wants
done.
Still, the new congress-
man from the Philippines
cafl'tlget a commitment.
: So no\\ he's looking for a
new dance partner for Noy.

Anid for that, the blame
rests directly on Money
Mayweather.
While he plays poolside,

Mayweather to fight Pacquiao


TIM DAHLBERG
Associated Press

While Mayweather con-
templates his future, boxing
fans may begin contemplat-
ing why they should keep
caring about what he does.
Arum thinks Mayweather
might be waiting to commit
until he sees what happens
to his uncle and longtime
trainer, Roger Mav weatherr .
who goes on trial next(:
month on assault charges in
Las Vegas.
Pacquiao fans undoubted-
ly think Mayweather is
scared of their man and
even more scared of the
possibility of losing for the'
first time in his career.
That's doubtful, if only
because he is a
Mayweather.
He, started throwing
punches before he learned
to walk, and fear isn't a part
of the family vocabulary.
But no one really, knows.
And Mayweather isn't say-
ing.
His silence prompted.
Arum to hold a midnight
conference call over the
weekend to say Pacquiao is
moving on and will either
fight Miguel Cotto on Nov.
13 in a rematch or take on
disgraced fighter Antonio.
Margarito.
Neither of those fights'
has much appeal, but Arum
controls both fighters.
Pacquiao is such a phe-
nomenon that he will do
decent pay-per-view num-
bers and make his millions.
Arum was trying to step
up the pressure on


SMCI photo,
Floyd Mayweather continues to seemingly dodge Manny
Pacquiao in what would be the top fight boxing has seen
in quite some time.


Mayweather, but his heart
doesn't seem into it.
He sounded Monday in a
phone interview like he was
resigned to moving on.
"What am I supposed to
do?" Arum asked. "The kid
is under no obligation to
fight again this year, and I
can't make him fight."
No, he can't.
And it's certainly
Mayweather's right to die-,
tate his own terms and not
follow Arum's timetables.
But fighting big fights is
what great fighters do.
And there's no bigger
fight than Mayweather and
Pacquiao.
There's also no better
way for Mayweather to
back up his somewhat
laughable claim that his
career will go down as the
greatest in boxing.
That career has taken off
ever since Mayweather
introduced his bad guy per-
sona to the world in the
lead-up to his fight with
Oscar De La Hoya in 2007.
With De La Hoya's ample


help they sold 2.4 million
pay-per-views, and
Mayweather 'was estab-
lished for the first time as a
box office attraction.,
But he went into retire-
ment after stopping Ricky
Hatton and has fought only
twice since returning from
his brief hiatus.
Impressive as he was in
beating Shane Mosley in
May, he was facing an.
aging boxer who seemed to
age even more with each
passing round.
The bottom line is if
Mayweather wants to claim
to be the greatest boxer ever,
he needs to fight Pacquiao.
And he needs to do it
now, when both fighters are
in their prime.
There will be plenty of
time to play in the pool later.
Now it's time to step up
and start acting like a Big
Boy.

Armstrong out for glory

in Tour mountain stage

Associated Press
B A GN E RES - D E -
LUCHON. France - Lance
Armstrong ,was making a
final bid for Tour de France
glory on; Tuesday, looking
for a win in a Pyrenees stage
that includes the legendary
Col du Tourmalet.
. The American seven-time.
champion, riding the Tour for
the last'time at the age of 38,
broke away in a small group,
right at the start of the 16th
stage from Bagneres-de-
Luchon to Pau, and was on
his own for a while.
SAs the riders started the
final ascent of the' day, the
long Col d'Aubisque,
Armstrong was riding in a
group of 10, more than six
minutes ahead of the main
field.
Armstrong, who also had
teammate Chris Horner in
the group, was taking the
largest share of time at the
front of the field.
The group also included
French veteran Christophe
Moreau and former Giro
d'Italia champion Damiano
Cunego.
Armstrong has no chance
of winning the overall title
but can hope for some glory
with a stage win.


Behind, in the main pack,
the Astana teammates of
defending champion Alberto
Contador were leading the
charge. as he rode in yellow
as overall leader for the first'
time in this year's race.
Earlier, the Spaniard apol-
ogized for the way he took
over the lead from rival Andy
Schleck.
On Monday, he,attacked as
Schleck suffered a mechani-
cal problem and holds an
eight-second lead over the
Luxembourg rider.
In a video posted on
YouTube, Contador said:
"Maybe I made a mistake.
I'm sorry. I don't like things
like what happened today,
I'm not like that and I hope
the relationship that I have
with Andy can go back 'to
being as good as it was
before this happened." ,
Tuesday's grueling 16th
stage is a 124-mile ride that
takes in four .major climbs,
including the Tourmalet.
The 172 riders will take on
the Tourmalet for a second
time on Thursday, finishing
.at the top. The race finishes

HOME IMPROVEMENT

,_, / d . Easy, cost-effective fixes for your concrete


ARA Content
Enerflex Radiant Barrier, which reflects up to 96 percent of the suti's radiant energy
and helps cool attic space up to 30 degrees, is easy to install and qualifies for a tax
credit for savings up to $1,500.

Lowering summer cooling costs is easy


ARA Content
When it comes to do-it-yourself projects
that will save money on energy .costs, many
new products on the market make it possi-
ble to save hundreds of dollars over time,
with just a few hours of easy installation.
Few of these products come close to the
long-term benefits of installing a radiant
barrier in your attic. There's even a federal
tax credit (available on your 2010 federal
tax return) to help you recoup a portion of
your purchase price, saving you up to
$1,500.
A radiant barrier works in your home
similar to the way a reflective foil car shade
works in your car. Just as a car shade keeps
the interior of an auto cooler when it's
parked in the sun, radiant barriers keep your
home's interior cooler when installed in
your attic where the sun's radiant energy is
absorbed.
The Florida Solar Energy Center has con-
ducted numerous studies on radiant barrier
installation and found that, under peak day-
time heat conditions, the total heat transfer
allowed down through attics can be reduced
by as much as 40 percent, which can signif-
icantly reduce a home air conditioning sys-
tem's cooling loads.
Of course the design of your home. makes
a difference: Whether it is a one-story or
two-story home, the home's age, the type of
roof, whether your roof has shade, your
HVAC system's efficiency, the type of insu-
lation installed and local energy rates all
contribute to your potential for individual
cost savings.


The warmer months provide a good time'
for consumers to take advantage of the
potential benefits of radiant barrier installa-
tion, according to Rick Jordan of EcoRite
Products, a major radiant barrier manufac-
turer.
'"I don't know of any product that is this
easy to install that does as much for reduc-
ing the stress on your heating or cooling
systems as a radiant barrier," Jordan says. ,
"On average, attics that have radiant barri-
ers installed are 30 degrees cooler than they
were before the product was installed. That
equates to a significant amount of heat that
is not baking down through the ceiling of a
home, causing the air conditioner to work
harder."
Experts say the use of radiant barriers
dates back at least 50 years;, with some of
the earlier concepts developed by NASA.
Home builders and scientists have known
for decades the benefits of foil-based radi-
ant barriers. In recent years, green builders
in particular have latched onto the concept,
routinely specifying and installing radiant
-barrier products in the attics of the homes
they build to'help reduce the overall carbon
footprint of the structures.
Universal Forest Products, one of the
nation's largest building products, compa-
nies, has created an entire divisioti dedicat-
ed to products for do-it-yourself consumers.
The company recently introduced an Energy
Star rated product, called Enerflex Radiant
Barrier, that is easy enough for almost any-
one to install, with no special tools
required.


ARA Content
Concrete is so durable and
dependable it's easy to take it
for granted. But like any
other surface around a home,
concrete needs maintenance
- In fact, performing simple.
upkeep on concrete surfaces
when problems are relatively
small can spare homeowners
the time drain, expense and
.aggravation of minor prob-
lems that have developed
into major issues.
Since economic conditions
have made homeowners
more vigilant about taking
care of their homes, preserv-
ing exterior concrete sur-
faces, such as driveways,
patios, steps and walkways,
is a worthwhile investment.
Fortunately, a number of the
most common repairs are
easy to do and can be accom-
plished in a weekend.
Surface renewal
Resurfacing old, worn or
spalled concrete is an eco-
nomical alternative to
removal and replacement.
Replacement can cost $3.50
or more per square foot
whereas resurfacing - using
a product such as Quikrete
Concrete Resurfacer - costs
25 to 30 cents per square
foot. To use:
* Thoroughly clean the
old concrete to ensure the
resurfacer will adhere prop-
erly. This can .be achieved
using a 3,500 psi high-duty
pressure washer to clear dirt,
debris, dust and any loose
materials from the concrete.
* Use weather stripping
to ensure the resurfacer does-
n't flow into the control .or
expansion joints. These are
the clean lines that were cut
into the concrete %when it was
poured to allow for the natu-
ral temperature-driPen
expansion and contraction of
the concrete. Without joints,
concrete will crack.
* Mix the resurfacing
compound and the recom-


ARA Content


mended amount of water in a
5-gallon bucket using a 1/2-
inch drill and paddle mixer.
The consistency should be
lump-free and flowable.
Sparingly add water to reach
the desired consistency.
* Saturate the concrete
surface and remove standing
water from low spots. Pour
the resurfacer and spread it
with a long-handled
squeegee. Use the squeegee
to scrub the material into the
surface.
Within five minutes of
completely covering the sur-
face with the resurfacer,
broom the surface, making
sure all broom strokes go in
the same direction.

Cosmetic work
Minor blemishes like small
cracks can be repaired with-
Sout resurfacing. Instead, try
using a patching material
such the Quikrete Patching


Compound.
Available in a ready-to-
apply putty, the patching
compound is ideal for minor
repairs like small non-struc-
tural cracks and spelling less
than 1/4 inch think.
Homeowners also can find
polymer-modified com-
pounds that bond directly to
the concrete surface for a
smooth repair.
These compounds are self-
bonding and curing so no
additives are needed.
Another option for cracks
less than a half inch wide is
Quikrete Concrete Crack
Seal, which comes in a quart
bottle that makes it. easy to
pour directly into the crack.
Dry to the touch within 30
minutes, the sealant main-
tains adhesion through
freeze/thaw cycles.
Larger cracks may require
a more flexible polyurethane
sealant with increased bond-
ing power and durability.

SINCE


In today's economy, is there a

need for a wedding planner?


ARA Content
Weddings can be one of
life's biggest expenses. In the
current economic climate, it's
no surprise that couples are
looking for ways to cut down
the costs. ,
"Most people are so busy
that they don't have time to
plan an event with everything
else they have going on in
their lives," says Deborah
Wallace, instructor with the
Event Management Diploma
Program at The Art Institute
of Vancouver, who thinks it's
important to see time as a pre-
cious commodity.
Wallace reflects that it can
be difficult to explain the time
saving as a justification to
couples; for example, it's eas-
ier to explain to a company
how much they would save in
staff wages through hiring a
professional to plan an event.
"It's hard to make this clear
for, a bride and groom," she
says. "A company knows
what their employee's time is
worth, but what are your
friends' and family's time
worth?"
Wallace also questions the
wisdom of asking loved ones


to help out with those impor-
tant wedding responsibilities,
such as picking out linen or
choosing the flowers. "It can
turn a celebration into a
stressful experience for the
helpers, who feel like they're
working while everyone else
is enjoying the festivities,"
she says.
"People spend a huge
amount on weddings, and
often the Wedding Planner is
actually a fraction of the over-
all costs," says Amy Alto,
whose company, Clear the
Floor, organizes first dances
for wedding parties.. Wedding
Planners can actually help
couples save some much-
needed dollars, through dis-
counts with suppliers and
services they use regularly. In
Alto's experience, the
Wedding Planner will also
tend to get the best service
from vendors for their client.
"The planners give them a lot
of business, so you can feel
confident that your cake will
arrive on time and the flowers
will be fresh," she says.
Mike Granek (CSEP), aca-
demic director for the Event
Management Diploma


Program at The Art Institute
of Vancouver, suggests that
training as an event planner
can provide the skills needed
to plan weddings and leave
career options wider.
Transferable skills, such, as
project management, financial
management, customer serv-
ice and risk management, are
all used in planning a wed-
ding. For example, managing
a stressed or sensitive bride
takes customer service skills,
and financial planning helps
to keep all the wedding costs
within budget.
Richard Markel, director of
the Association for Wedding
Professionals International,
doesn't predict a slowdown in
the increasing numbers of
wedding planners anytime
soon. He estimates that there
are currently 60,000 piofes-
sionally registered wedding
planners in ihe US.
So is there a need for wed-
ding planners? "Absolutely,"
says Granek. "There are
always people wanting to get
married. As long as there are
people getting married, there
will be a need for wedding
planners."

Facades of perfectionism


My grandmother jaughit
me that if you couldn't say
anything nice then say noth-
ing at all. That is such a
wonderful adage to. live by. I
first wrote to love by and
that is probably the best way
to live.
� What happens to us that
makes us want or need to
criticize everything? Do we
learn this at our grandmoth-
er's knee or do we just pick
it up through osmosis from
our parents. How sad that the
adage that we should live by
is just words and not actions.
Or is it as we get older we
just say what we think with-
out thought to how someone
is going to react to it? In the
long run it doesn't matter
because whatever the reason
for our blunders, the hurt is
done. Do we become our
mothers or some other nega-
tive person in our. lives? Is
the programming so
engrained in us that we don't
stand a'chance of changing?
I pray not, but prayers are
not the only answer; we have
to dig deep to stop this
behavior in us because we
know how it feels to be criti-
cized. If we know how it


fejils then\,hi.dJo we do this.
I think it is perfectionism
plain and simple.'The truth is
that ne think we are better '
and therefore our opinion
should and must be shared.
Now that is a scary thought.
Perfectionism rears its ugly
head again and %\ e are deter-
mined to stick our foot in our
mouths just cause %Lere right.
When are we ever going to
learn? Not every thought in
our head should be %\oiced or
A written quickly and sent via
email. If someone had want-.
ed our opinion then don't
you.think they Lwould have
asked for it?
Even the closest people to
you don't need to hear your
every thought on a subject.
These people are allowed to6
have opinions of their own. .
They can make decisions on
their own. If they desire an
outside opinion they are'
smart enough to ask for it
and have enough courage to
listen to it. Just because they
asked does not mean they
have to take your opinion
and use it. If they ask for an.
opinion then when they don't
get the answer they were
looking for it will teach them


noLt.o ask again.
Opinions should be gien '
honestly when requested.
The old adage comes back
into play if you are not
asked: if you can't say any-
thing good then say nothing
at all. We can always' find
something nice to say if wee
will choose our words w ise-
ly.
Have you been hearing
your mother or fathers voice
coming out of your mouth?
You don't have allow this
behavior to hurt another per-
son. You can nip it in the bud
by letting the words fill your
head first and imagine how
someone might react. We can
also write it out to get the
full impact of the harshness
of the criticism. Then we can
tear it up. We 'can stop nega-
tivity from becoming a can-
cer in our lives.,
Has your perfectionism
caused you to put on the
facade of cattiness, gossip-
ing, whining, sarcasm, mar-
ty rdom, cynicism, snide
remarks, realism or I'm just
saying? Isn't it awful that
perfect can turn into such
ugliness? Watch yourself this
week. Put signs to up remind

yourself to stop this negative
behavior. Just because you.
think you are right doesn't
give you permission to rain
on someone's parade.

Sex and drug


education is needed


now more than ever


Dear Abby: When I was a
young teen, my mother gave
me a copy of your booklet
"What Every Teen Should
Know." She left it on my
bed for me to read at my
own pace, and let me know
that I could come to her if I
had any questions, when I
was ready to ask them.
For years that booklet
served as a reference guide
for me. I also lent it to many
of my friends whose parents
were not so forthcoming
with this important informa-
tion. Being informed and not
believing urban myths made
a big difference in our deci-
sions - and we're all'doing
well now.
A decade later, I often
work with teens who have
received no comprehensive
education about sex, drugs,
or the impact of decisions
they make during adoles-
cence. Your booklet remains
an important tool in these
kids' educations. I write to
encourage all parents, grand-
parents and relatives of teens.
to keep a c6py of this book-
let handy - and to thank
those who have already done
so.
- Kristen Woytonik,
Dover, N.H.
Dear Kristen: Thank you
for your endorsement of my
teen booklet. I am pleased
that you continue to find it
useful. Today many young
people engage in adult activ-
ities at a much earlier age
than the teenagers of previ-
ous generations. That's why
it is so important for parents
to take the initiative and dis-
cuss alcohol. drugs. sex and
FAMILY VALUES with their
children well before nature
takes over and they start.
.experimenting.
My teen booklet contains
answers to commonly asked
questions such as: How old
must a girl be before she can
get pregnant? Can a girl get.
pregnant the first time she
has sex? What time of the
month is a girl 100 percent
safe? How old must a boy be
before he can father a child?
Another important topic
co\ ered is "How To Avoid
Date Rape and What To Do
If It Happens." To order
"What Every Teen Should
Know," send your name and
address, plus check or
