Senate passes teacher merit pay replacement


New legislation would
do away with one-year
STAR program.
By BILL KACZOR
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - Confrontation
and acrimony over performance pay
for teachers that has distracted
school districts for more than a year
neared an end Wednesday when the
Senate passed a bill to repeal and
replace Florida's existing program.
The bill (SB 1226) would do

Segregation protesters
would have easier

By STEPHEN MAJORS
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - A law-abid-
ing citizen and a teacher for
decades, JoAnn Martin Hughes
went to her mailbox and reopened
a painful era.
In a letter from the Manatee
County school district, Hughes dis-
covered she had a criminal record
- a more than 30-year-old misde-
meanor from a famous lie-in at a St.
Augustine pharmacy that helped
spur the passage of the 1964 Civil
Rights Act. Hughes was told shortly
after her arrest she wouldn't have a
record, but the fingerprints she had
supplied to the school district in
new background checks in 1996
told a different story.
"It was the worst day of my life
when I took this letter out of the
mailbox," Hughes said. "I was in a
state of shock because I didn't
know I had a record."
Florida lawmakers want to make
it easier for segregation protesters
like Hughes to clear their records of
crimes borne of a determination to
end racial discrimination. Proposed
legislation would speed applications
to erase such convictions past other
pardon requests to the governor

Sen. Tony Hill, D-Jacksonville

civil rights era.


away with the Special Teachers
are Rewarded, or STAR, program
the Legislature passed last year.
Instead, it would create the Merit
Awards Program that will give
local unions and school districts
more flexibility in developing per-
formance pay plans tailored to
their needs.
"This gets closer to what we
believe would be a true workable
compensation reward system,"
said Florida Education Association
president Andy Ford, whose union
includes locals across the state.
"The STAR program has really


torn school districts apart."
Critics complained STAR has
been too rigid, puts too much
reliance on standardized student
tests to determine which teachers
would get bonuses and gave dis-
tricts too little time to develop local
plans. Teachers and their unions
filed administrative and legal chal-
lenges, and some districts refused
to participate even thought it would
cost them millions of state dollars
allocated for the bonuses.
A 39-0 roll call sent the compro-
mise legislation to the House for a
final vote scheduled Thursday. It


is supported by House leaders,
the statewide teachers union and
associations representing school
boards and superintendents.
Ford said bill should remove a
wedge that STAR has placed
between school boards and
unions. That could have been
avoided if lawmakers and other
state officials, including former
Gov. Jeb Bush, had seriously con-
sidered what teachers and their
unions were saying before STAR
passed, Ford said.

Firefighters face a far greater
risk of dying of heart problems
while battling a blaze than was
thought, suggests a large U.S.
study that offers more evidence of
their need to stay in shape.
The risk of a heart-related death
while putting out a fire was up to 100
times higher than the risk during
down time, Harvard researchers
found, even though fighting fires
accounts for only a small percentage
of these workers' time.
About 100 firefighters die in the
line of duty each year and previous
research has shown that nearly half
of the deaths are due to heart dis-
ease. The vast majority - about 70
percent - of the nation's roughly 1

Experts say diet and exercise

"You may not be able to prevent
all these deaths, but to the degree
you can prevent some deaths by
paying attention to underlying risk
factors and better fitness programs,
that's the. goal," said Dr. Linda
Rosenstock, dean of the UCLA

not involved in the study.
The study, published in
Thursday's New England Journal of

'firefighters have an overall higher
risk of dying from heart disease

could do more to improve health by
requiring annual physical and fit-

Grandmother
charged in death
GAINESVILLE - A
grandmother caused her
2-month-old grandson's death
by failing to take him to
doctors appointments that
could have saved his life,
police say.
Schwana Renae Smith, 34,
has been charged with
manslaughter for the death of
Rueben Alvin Manning III.
She had been caring for
the baby after her 16-year-old
daughter - the child's
mother - was arrested
Jan. 25 on a charge of
violation of probation, police
said. He died Jan. 31.
The child had an enlarged
head that an exam after his
death showed was caused by
fluid on the brain, a buildup
that caused the skull to swell.
Following a Jan. 23
appointment with a
pediatrician, an ultrasound
had been scheduled for the
child to determine the cause
of the swelling. But the boy
was not taken to the Jan. 26
appointment or to another
Jan. 30, police said.
Authorities were searching
for the child's father, Reuben
Manning, who they said
knew about the
appointments.

Soto easily wins
Democratic primary
TALLAHASSEE - Darren
Soto easily won a Democratic
primary for an open House
seat in central Florida, and
will face Republican Tony
Suarez in the general election
April 24.
Soto, an attorney, won with
46 percent of the vote
Tuesday in a six-way primary,
beating out former
Massachusetts lawmaker Bill
McManus.
The race is for the Orange
and Osceola County seat that
had been held by former Rep.
John Quinones, a Republican
who quit to run for a new
seat on the Osceola County


Commission. Quinones easily
won the GOP primary for
that seat on Tuesday.

Peyton elected
for another term
JACKSONVILLE - Mayor
John Peyton easily defeated
his Democratic opponent to
win a second four-year term.
The Republican captured
76 percent of the vote to
defeat contractor Jackie
Brown in Tuesday's election.
"I'm humbled to have this
level of support in the city,"
Peyton told the Florida
Times-Union. "I think we've
worked very hard this first
four years to earn the
privilege to serve a second
four years."
Also Tuesday, incumbent
Jerry Holland took
71 percent of the vote to beat
former City Councilwoman
Suzanne Jenkins for
supervisor of elections. John
Rutherford was re-elected
sheriff with 60 percent of the
votes, defeating Dale Carson
and Reginald Davis.

Dog found in
shipping container
PORT EVERGLADES -
Dockworkers at Port
� Everglades found a stowaway
in a shipping container from
Venezuela, but immigration
services won't be getting
involved.
The stowaway was a
3-month-old, caramel-colored
dog. She was found Thursday
in a trailer-sized container
among a shipment of tiles.
The puppy had apparently
survived a six-day trip from
Maracaibo.
'"We opened the container
and the dog started running
out," dock supervisor Rene
Pedraza told the South
Florida Sun-Sentinel. "Just
started looking for food and
water."
Workers fed the emaciated
canine and contacted
Broward County's Animal
Care & Regulation Division,


which took it to a shelter.
Bobbi Miller, who works
for a West Palm Beach animal
rescue group, took the dog to
a Palm Beach County vet,
who administered
intravenous feeding Tuesday.

Cop charged with
kidnapping woman
MIAMI - A Miami police
officer kidnapped a woman in
his patrol car and tried to
rape her, authorities said.
Michael P. Ragusa, who
has been with the Miami
Police Department for three
years, was stripped of his
badge and gun and charged
with kidnapping and
attempted sexual battery by a
law enforcement officer.
"It's difficult for us anytime
one of our own gets in
trouble for anything," Miami
Lt. Bill Schwartz said. "But
something like this boggles
the mind."
Ragusa, 31, was not on
duty when the alleged
kidnapping happened in
Miami Beach Monday
morning.
Ragusa pulled up to a
31-year-old woman who had
just left work, police
reported. She stepped off a
county bus, and he called her
over.
Ragusa grabbed her by
the arm and pulled her
toward his cruiser,
according to a police report.
The woman later told
police she had never seen
Ragusa before. She also told
police he smelled of alcohol.
Ragusa tried to rape her
but stopped when the
woman claimed she had a
venereal disease, police said.
Ragusa agreed to take her
home but demanded she
give him her cell ph6ne
number, police said. When
he called her later that
morning to invite her to
lunch, the woman told her
boyfriend, who immediately
called the Miami Beach
Police.

Group hopes its 'five o'clock


somewhere' in Fort White


By JOHNNA PINHOLSTER
jpinholster@lakecityreporter.comrn
FORT WHITE - Lake City seems a
little more tropical when this group
comes to town.
The Fort White Parrot Head Club is a
die-hard group of Jimmy Buffet fans.
Scott O'Quinn, one of the founding
members of the Fort White group, said
the Parrot Head organization began in
1996 in Atlanta.
'These two guys were tailgating at the
concerts and decided, 'hey man let's
start a club,'" O'Quinn said.
Now 496 clubs across the country are
part of Parrot Heads in Paradise, Inc.,
O'Quinn said.
The Fort White group launched in
October 2006 and already has 46
members.
O'Quinn and Cheryl Ward started the
group, both being members of other
clubs in the state.
"I was a member in New Symrna
Beach when I lived down there,"
O'Quinn said. "Cheryl was a member
in Ocala because that was the


closest group."
The group meets twice a month. The
main meeting spot is Beef O'Brady's in
Lake City. O'Quinn said Phish Heads of
Lake City and member's homes also
serve as meeting places.
"At meetings, we have a good time and
party," O'Quinn said.
But the club also makes a difference in
the area.
Before Christmas, the club hosted a
fundraiser at the Lake City Mall to raise
money for the Christmas Dream
Machine. The tricycle race around the
mall raised over $1,300 for kids that
would not be able to celebrate Christmas.
The Parrot Heads have also adopted
part of CR 18 near Fort White, cleaning
up the roadway and walkway.
Clubs earn points for the various
fundraisers they perform, O'Quinn said,
and are able to buy tickets for a Jimmy
Buffet concert in the area three weeks in
advance and at a discounted price.
O'Quinn said that members vary in
age, the oldest turning 60 this week and
the youngest being 4-years-old.
"The younger members, 21 on down,


we call kets, because that's what little
pari-ots are called," O'Quinn said.
Membership fees are yearly and are
$20 for a couple and $15 for a single
member. O'Quinn said people interested
in joining the club can pick up an appli-
cation at a meeting.
O'Quinn said the club's next big event
will be June 2 at Spirit of the Suwannee
Music Park in Live Oak. The event is
called Tropical Night Rocks the
Suwannee and will feature bands, food
and a new beer being distributed by
Margaritaville - Landshark.
"We figured we would throw one big
party and draw attention to the club and
the new beer," O'Quinn said.
The music starts at 11 a.m. Tickets are
$20 and can be purchased at The Money
Man in Lake City, Smitty's Western Wear
in Lake City, The Brown Lantern restau-
rant in Live Oak and Spirit of the
Suwannee Music Park.
O'Quinn said the club's new banner
will be up at Beef O'Brady's sometime
this week and they are
also on the Internet at www.ftwhiteparrot-

Man OK after wreck


By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.com
A Lake City man suffered
minor injuries Tuesday after-
noon after his motorcycle was
hit by a car driving across
West U.S. Highway 90.
Johnny Mack Wright, 53, of
Lake City, was injured and
taken to Lake City Medical
Center where he was treated
and later released, according
to hospital officials.
Reports from the Lake City
Police Department indicate
Wright was traveling east on
U.S. Highway 90 East and
approaching Ermine Avenue
on his 1994 Harley-Davidson
motorcycle. The wreck
occurred at approximately
1:41 p.m.
A 1994 Pontiac car driven
by Karen Scippio Graves, 45,
of Lake City, was stopped on
Ermine Avenue at a stop sign
at its intersection with U.S. 90,
next to the Lake City Church


of God.
According to the police
department, Graves attempt-
ed to enter the flowing traffic
on U.S. Highway 90, but did
not allow enough time for
Wright to pass on his motor-
cycle. Graves' car struck the
front of the motorcycle and
caused the rider to be pro-
pelled from his bike.
Wright was not wearing a
helmet at the time of the
wreck, police said.
Officers from the police
department and Columbia
County Sheriff's Office
responded to the scene, as did
units from the Lake City Fire
Department.
Wright was taken by
Columbia County EMS to
Lake City Medical Center.
According to reports,
Graves was not injured in the
crash. She was cited by the
police department for failing
to yield to a left turn and hav-
ing no proof of insurance.

EDITORIAL


It's never


too late to


chase your


dreams

Non-traditional students
make up a healthy portion
of the student population at
Lake City Community
College. It's another
example of how the college provides a
much-needed service for our Columbia
County community.
With evening classes and flexible
programs, LCCC provides an
opportunity for many non-traditional
students to better themselves and
pursue an associate's degree in one of
many fields of their choice.
We all know the statistics: More
education usually means a better
job with better pay and a better quality
of life.
People who pursue higher education
normally set high goals for themselves
and go out and achieve their dreams.
LCCC's eagerness to assist and
accommodate non-traditional students
also helps solidify its place as a great
community partner.
For a multitude of reasons, many
members of our community and our
quickly growing regional population did
not have the opportunity to attend
college immediately after high school.
Some went to work. Some got married
and started families. Some had other
interests and weren't motivated to seek
a college education.
LCCC gives people who may have
missed their first chance at furthering
their education another shot at
classroom success. It is good to see
these programs.for nontraditional

COMMENTARY


No apologies necessary


A ad fact of
American politics
is that it is nigh
onto impossible to
succeed without
lying. Politics provokes and
promotes prevarication. But
no group of politicians in
recent memory seems to lie
with the ease or the inability
to admit error, as the
administration currently in
office. I had my first personal
brush with this administration's
less-than-honest approach to
the record this past week.
Former President Bill
Clinton lied about having sex
with White House intern
Monica Lewinsky. But at least
when he got caught lying or
badly misjudging the facts (to
wit, the meaning of "is"), he
had the guts to admit error.
In February 1999, CNN ran
the following story: "An
acquitted President Bill
Clinton apologized to the
American people again Friday,
saying he was 'profoundly
sorry' for what he did that
led to his impeachment and
the Senate trial."
Whoever thought we might
remember a return to that
discomfiting era with
fondness? After six years of
former Defense Secretary
Donald Rumsfeld and Vice
President Dick Cheney and
even President Bush telling us
things aren't so bad in Iraq,
this crowd's systemic inability
to admit error or to apologize
for past wrongs is getting
very, very old. The U.S
attorney firing scandal,
currently depleting whatever
small reserve of trust some
Americans still harbor for the
president, is yet another
example.
Last week in this space
I wrote about the Bush
administration's quiet
disassembling of federal
support systems for women
and girls: in sports (Title IX),
on the family front (Family

Bonnie Erbe
bonnieerbe@compuserve.com


and Medical Leave Act), in
women's health (the Office of
Women's Health at the FDA)
and in the area of government
contracts for women-owned
small businesses.
The relevant part of my
column read as follows, "On
government contracting with
women-owned small
businesses, again the
administration's tenure has
brought bad news for women.
The rate of growth of federal
contracts offered to this group
has slowed during this
administration."
The next day, Christine
Mangi, press secretary, U.S.
Small Business Administration,
cc'd me on an e-mail response
to my column, signed by SBA
Administrator Steven Preston.
It said in relevant part, "Dear
Editor: Bonnie Erbe got her
facts wrong regarding
women-owned small
businesses under the Bush
Administration ("How women
have fared under President
Bush," 3/15/07). Erbe claimed
that under this President, the
rate of federal contracts to
women-owned businesses has
slowed. In fact, the growthbhas
increased at a healthy pace."
I fired off the following
response to Mangi and one of
my editors, '"Thank you for
your e-mail as below, but
please understand my facts
were entirely correct and you
misquoted me. You said below
I claimed in my column that
'the rate of federal contracts to
women-owned businesses has
slowed.' In fact ... what I wrote
was ... the RATE of GROWTH


of federal contracts to WOSB's
has slowed which is correct.
I did not say the RATE'of
federal contracts to WOSB's
has slowed, which is
incorrect, but which you
quoted me as saying. Please
send me an e-mail correcting
your mistake and showing me
you cc'd any and all editors to
whom you may have sent the
original e-mail."
The next day I received
another e-mail with the lead
paragraph changed to: "I write
in response to Bonnie Erbe's
misleading article regarding
women-owned small
businesses under the Bush
Administration ("How women
have fared under President
Bush," 3/14/07)."
Note that the publication
dates were changed in her
e-mails.
This small example of the
administration's fatal allergy to
self-correction or apology
pales in importance when
compared to, say, Cheney's
claim four years ago that the
war in Iraq would be over in a
matter of weeks or months,
or Bush's shameless
flight-suit-clad strut across the
deck of the USS Abraham
Lincoln under a banner
declaring "Mission
Accomplished." But it shows
the pervasive nature of the
administration's approach to
error, whether on matters
major or minor, of great
import or none at all.
Perhaps some
administration higher-up
is a fan of Baroness Orczy
Emmuska, the Hungarian-
born British novelist and
playwright who is credited
with saying, "An apology?
Bah! Disgusting! Cowardly!
Beneath the dignity of any
gentleman, however wrong he
might be."

* Bonnie Erbe is a TV host and
writes this column for Scripps
Howard News Service.


The best thing that
can be said of the
House Democratic
leadership's bill
funding the wars
in Iraq and Afghanistan is that
it is unlikely to pass the
Senate, and in the improbable
event that it does, President
Bush will veto it.
The bill aims to do indirectly
what its Democratic authors
don't have the support or
political will to do directly -
pull U.S. troops out of Iraq. It
would accomplish that goal by
micromanaging the war and
imposing on the Iraqis a series
of difficult-to-meet deadlines -
the preferred euphemism is
"benchmarks" - that could
have us out as early as the end
of the year and gone in any
case by August 2008.


And what is so magical about
August of that year? It is the
start of the presidential election
campaign and, as the
corruption and incompetence
of the old Republican Congress
fade in the public's memory,
the war is the one reliable issue
the Democrats have.
They won Congress last fall
on an anti-war platform, and
this bill would allow them to go
to the voters in 2008 and say
they delivered on what they
promised. But there's nothing
very honorable about how they
plan to get to that point.
Bush asked Congress for
$100 billion to fight the wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan plus
$3 billion in standby disaster
relief. The House bill proposes
to give him $126.4 billion.
And the extra money? Much


of it is pork to buy support for
the bill from reluctant
lawmakers. There is money for
Gulf Coast cleanup and levee
repair, for spinach growers, for
restoring freeze-damaged
farmland, for peanut storage,
for rice farmers, for wildfire
suppression, for shrimp and
menhaden fishermen.
Whatever one thinks of the
war, we've created a situation
that we can't just walk away
from, as simple and attractive
as that option might sound.
There has to be consideration
of what we leave behind.
Abandoning both the Iraqis
who stood up for us and our
geopolitical interests in the
Persian Gulf should not be an
option, but that is the choice
this bill would make.

The olden,


golden days


of aviation

IAthough I appear antique, I am not
yet a grandfather, which is
something to look forward to.
If I am ever blessed with
grandchildren, I intend to regale
them with stories of life in the olden days,
which is what grandfathers do.
Of course, the olden days are not what they
used to be. To be precise, they are not as olden.
That's because, if you are a kid, the olden
days consist of any time before you were
born. According to this innocent theory, the
late '90s can be the olden days, which is a
scary thought.
As my life
covers many
olden days even
older, I will be
well-placed

grandfather to
w talk about the Reg Henry
times when we rhenry@post-gazette.com
wore leisure
suits, bell-bottomed jeans and generally looked
like clowns. But I don't think I will go do that
immediately because children's bodies can only
stand so much convulsive laughter. Instead, I
will talk about aviation.
And why not? Kids like planes and, more to
the point, I like planes. Indeed, I can see myself
now with the grandkids, talking about the
golden age of aviation back in the olden days.
"Pops!" one moppet will say, "Did you have
to ride on the back of a pterodactyl when you
were flying back in the olden days?"
"Why, no, darling. We had actual airplanes."
"Pops!" another cute one will then ask. "Did
you have to wear goggles and have,to sit
outside in the wind like Snoopy - and is that
how your hair blew away?"
"No, darling. My hair blew away walking on
the tarniac to the plaie, bit then we sat'inside
in comfy seats and the beautiful ladies who
were the flight attendants served us meals,
which we criticized because we didn't know
they might disappear one day. But here's the
most amazing thing, kids. Are you ready for a
shock? These planes often got you where you
wanted to go!"
"You mean, Pops, they weren't cancelled
all the time? Ohhh! Ahhh!" a chorus of
incredulous little voices would say.
Perhaps the olden days were not so golden.
Still, the airlines had to be better than now.
A recent story in The New York Times
described the situation this way: "After a
spate of nightmarish service disruptions,
American Airlines, JetBlue Airways and
others are sending out more apologies,
hoping to head off consumer complaints and
quell talk of new consumer-protection
regulations from Congress."
Apologies? Yes, I reckon a few are due,
especially after last weekend, when a winter
storm hit the Northeast.
As it happens, I was caught up in it. I had
intended to visit my two adult, single children
in New York City, the ones who will give us
our grandchildren if only they get their acts
together, not to pressure them.
I ha edbooked on Continental Airlines (I hate
to call it out in my new grandfatherly persona,
but all airlines seem to have their problems
these days). I was to take an 8:40 a.m. flight to
Newark, but, of course, it was canceled.
Fair enough. In every life, a little snow must
fall and planes must be canceled in every
storm. By checking on the Web, I knew the
flight was canceled so I didn't go to the airport.
That was a mistake, because they have human
beings at the airport to talk about other options.
At home, frustrated with the airline's Web
site in my old-fashioned way, all I could get was
a busy signal on the phone and then robot voice
prompts when I finally got through. The robot
voices, in turn, directed my calls to other
extensions, which were then busy.
As misfortunes go, it wasn't the worst. I
didn't have to sleep in an airport, as some did.
Well, maybe a little chorus. In February,
while waiting to return from Jacksonville on a
United Express flight, the incoming flight
struck a bird and was grounded. My wife and
I waited hours before we got information. I
suspect the gate staff contacted the bird's
next of kin before they told the passengers,
what was going on.
I know the airline industry has had its
problems since Sept. 11, and beforethe dead
hand of Congress tries to make things worse,
let me suggest that the airlines try to hire
fewer apology makers and more human
beings who can be easily reached to make
apologies less necessary. Some contingency
planning might also help.

NEW YORK - Satellite
radio customers will get the
option to pay a lower price for
just the channels they want if
the industry's two big
providers are allowed to
merge, Sirius Satellite Radio
Inc. said Wednesday in a secu-
rities filing of its bid to buy XM
Satellite Radio Holdings Inc.
The statement comes as
Sirius with XM seek to assuage
regulatory concerns that their
deal, to be paid for with stock
valued at $4.7 billion when it
was announced Feb. 19, will
create a monopoly that would
harm consumers.
The Sirius filing said the
deal would generate cost sav-
ings from efficiencies that
could allow the company to
offer "a la carte" program-
ming at a price below the
current $12.95 per month
subscription fee.
An a la carte option would
allow customers to pay only
for the channels they want to
receive. Combined, Sirius and
XM currently offer more than
300 channels of program-
ming. But some of those sta-
tions are identical and many
more feature similar formats
and genres.
"Customers may elect to
receive fewer channels at a

Interest rates hold steady


By JEANNINE AVERSA
AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON - The
Federal Reserve held interest
rates steady on Wednesday
and raised the possibility they
could be cut in the months
ahead, igniting a rally on Wall
Street where investors are
thirsting for a reduction.
Fed Chairman Ben
Bernanke and his central
bank colleagues left an impor-
tant interest rate unchanged
at 5.25 percent, the sixth
straight meeting without
budging the rate. The
decision was unanimous.
On Wall Street, stocks rose
sharply. The Dow Jones indus-
trials were up nearly 140
points in late afternoon
trading.
The Fed's decision means
that commercial banks' prime
interest rate - for certain
credit cards, home equity
lines of credit and other
loans- stays at 8.25 percent.
The Fed has left rates alone
since August, giving borrow-
ers time to catch their breath
after two years of steadily
rising rates.
In an important shift, Fed
policymakers got rid of lan-
guage from previous policy
statements that suggested
their next move could be a
rate increase. Instead, the Fed
is now widening its options
and raising the possibility that

rates could go down.
Investors are betting the
Fed will cut rates later this
year to guard against any
undue economic weakness.
Many economists predict
the central bank will probably
start cutting rates early next
year.
The Fed is still sticking to
its forecast that inflation
should recede over time and
the economy should grow
strains from the housing
slump and troubles facing
lenders and borrowers of
risky mortgages - should log
moderate growth over the
coming quarters.
That being said, the Fed did
slightly downgrade its assess-
ment of current economic
conditions, saying recent
barometers "have been
mixed."


BRIEFS


Wall Street shakes
concerns of selloff
NEW YORK - Wall Street
rallied sharply Wednesday after
an economic assessment by the
Federal Reserve ignited hopes
that the central bank has
warmed to the idea of lowering
short-term interest rates.
Largely thanks to
Wednesday's triple-digit gains,
the Dow Jones industrials have
surged 337 points this week,
the best three-day performance
for the blue chip average since
November 2004.
Investors had nervously
awaited the economic statement
that accompanied the Fed's
decision to leave short-term
interest rates unchanged at
5.25 percent, and were
encouraged that the central
bank didn't refer to the
possibility of "additional firming"
of rates as it did in January.
Policymakers said "future policy
adjustments" will depend on
inflation and growth.

Biotech to reach
increasing demand
SAN FRANCISCO -
Biotechnology was first applied
in medicine, then farming.
Today, dozens of lifesaving
drugs are on the market, while


many crops are genetically
engineered to withstand weed
killers.
Now, a 2-year-old push to
develop alternative fuels is
driving biotechnology's growth
into the industrial sector.
Thousands of corporate
executives and scientists gather
this weekend in Orlando for an
industry trade show specifically
aimed at touting biotechnology's
so-called third wave, industrial
applications. The word on
everyone's lips: ethanol.

Morgan Stanley
1Q profits soar
NEW YORK - Morgan
Stanley Inc., the second-biggest
investment bank on Wall Street,
said Wednesday its fiscal
first-quarter profit soared 69
percent on robust trading and
strong advisory fees from stock
and bond underwriting.
Its shares rose nearly
3 percent in morning trading.
Profit after paying preferred
dividends rose to $2.66 billion,
or $2.51 per share, in the three
months ended Feb. 28 from
$1.57 billion, or $1.48 per
share, in the year-ago period.
Excluding a gain on the sale of
Quilter Holdings, the company
posted profit.

BRIEFS

Soldier pleads
guilty in rape case
FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. - A
Fort Campbell soldier pleaded
guilty Wednesday to being an
accessory to the rape and
murder of an Iraqi girl and the
slaying of her family.
Pfc. Bryan Howard, 20, also
pleaded guilty to conspiracy to
obstruct justice by lying to his
superior officers about the
attack last year in Mahmoudiya,
20 miles south of Baghdad. It
was one of the most shocking
atrocities in the Iraq war.
Howard could get up to 15
years in prison at a sentencing
hearing expected to begin later
Wednesday.
Howard told the judge he was
left behind at a checkpoint while
four other,soldiers went to rape
the girl. Howard said he
overheard the four planning the
attack.

Judge pleads guilty
to transporting beer
BELLEVILLE, III. - A judge
accused of trying to hide a beer
after a drunk colleague he was
riding with got into a car crash
has pleaded guilty to illegally
transporting alcohol.
St. Clair County Judge Jan
Fiss entered his plea Tuesday
and was sentenced to two
months under court supervision
and ordered to pay a $500 fine.
Fiss, 64, and Circuit Judge
Patrick Young, 58, were
returning to Belleville from a St.
Louis Rams football game in
December when Young's
sport-utility vehicle collided with
a pickup truck, injuring the
pickup driver.
Young was convicted earlier
this month of drunken driving.
He was sentenced to two years
of court supervision and ordered
to pay $1,500 in fines.

Fire boat sinks
before first run
NEWPORT NEWS, Va -
The city's $385,000,
state-of-the-art fire boat sank
Wednesday, still tied up at a
dock and without ever being put
to use.
The boat, moored at a marina
by the James River-Bridge, was
discovered with its stern sitting
on the river bottom and the bow
sticking up out of the water.
Investigators had not yet
determined the cause of the
sinking.
The fire department had not
even taken ownership of the
33-foot boat because it was
waiting for the manufacturer,
MetalCraft Marine of Canada, to
finish installing electronic
equipment, department
spokeswoman Dana Perry said.
Perry said the department
has two other boats that can be
used to fight fires on the water,
but they don't have the
capabilities or technology of the
new vessel.

Suspect's ex-lover testifies


about their relationship


By REBECCA SANTANA
Associated Press
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J.
- The former lover of a
woman accused of killing her
husband and stuffing his
remains into luggage testified
Wednesday that they had
both planned to leave their
spouses and start a life
together.
.The affair between Dr.
Bradley Miller and Melanie
McGuire had started with a
birthday cake and flirting at
Miller's infertility clinic,
where McGuire worked as a
nurse. Miller said the two had
planned to move in together
and possibly have kids.
"She was going to divorce
Bill, and a while later I was
going to divorce Charlotte,"
he testified at McGuire's
murder trial.
In May 2004, suitcases con-
taining parts of Bill McGuire's
body began washing up on
the shore of Chesapeake Bay
in Virginia.
Melanie McGuire, a 34-


year-old
mother of
two, main-
S tains that
Sshe didn't
kill her hus-
band and
McGuire says the
real killer
tried to frame her. Her
defense lawyers have not said
if McGuire will testify during
the trial, now in its third week.
She is charged with first-
degree murder in the killing
of her husband, a 39-year-old
state computer analyst.
Miller said he agreed to let
authorities record telephone
conversations he had with
McGuire in May 2005 while a
grand jury was hearing testi-
mony in the case. At no point
during the taped conversa-
tions played in court
Wednesday did McGuire con-
fess or indicate that she was
guilty..
Miller said that although he
was cooperating with police
he still believed in his lover's
innocence.


"I was still very much in
love with her and I still
believed that she had nothing
to do with this," Miller
testified.
Prosecutors allege that
McGuire used the Internet to
research gun laws, pesticides
and ways to kill. They say her
husband was drugged with a
sedative, shot in the head and
chest, cut into pieces in the
couple's apartment and then
put into three suitcases that
were thrown into the bay.
McGuire's lawyer, Stephen
Turano, has said his client's
husband had a gambling
problem and could have got-
ten into trouble and borrowed
money from the wrong
people.
Miller, who has cooperated
with police in the case, testi-
fied that McGuire was crying
when she told him her hus-
band's body had washed up
on the shore in Kenneth Cole
suitcases.
"She was very upset,"
Miller said.


Family charged with kidnapping


By DAN NEPHIN
Associated Press
GREENSBURG, Pa. - A
couple and their three teenage
children held a woman captive
for six months, referring to
her as their "slave" as they
beat her, forced her to do
chores and threatened her life
and the lives of her relatives,
police said Wednesday.
All five members of the fam-
ily, ranging in age from 43 to
16, were arrested on charges
of kidnapping and making ter-
roristic threats. They had not
yet entered pleas Wednesday
but denied wrongdoing.
The accuser, Emily Nicely,
19, said she went to live with
the family voluntarily but
alleges that she had been
forced to stay with them since
September, authorities said.
Police were called March 10
after a man whose newspaper
was delivered by the family
reported seeing bruises on
the young woman.
"She had injuries on every
part of her body," said police
Capt. George Seranko. A
hospital examination also

Attorney opposes closed

jury selection in old case


By JACK ELLIOTT JR.
Associated Press
JACKSON, Miss. -
Attorneys for a reputed Ku
Klux Klansman charged with
kidnapping in the 1964 slay-
ings of two black men are
opposing the government's
efforts to keep jury selection
secret and to sequester jurors
during trial.
James Ford Seale, 71, has
pleaded innocent to federal
kidnapping and conspiracy
charges in the May 2, 1964,
abduction of Henry Hezekiah
Dee and Charles Eddie
Moore.
The teenagers were hitch-
hiking in Meadville when they
were grabbed and beaten -
allegedly by Klansmen - and


then drowned in the
Mississippi River, according
to FBI reports.
One of Seale's public
defenders, Dennis Joiner,
responded in court papers last
week to requests from prose-
cutors that potential jurors be
questioned individually, that
the final phases of jury selec-
tion be closed to the public,
that jurors names be kept
secret and that the jury be
sequestered for the duration
of the trial.
Joiner said allowing such
"extreme measures" would
prejudice jurors and violate
Seale's right to a fair trial.
U.S. District Judge Henry T.
Wingate scheduled a hearing
on those issues for Thursday.

ALTRUSA: Honored during women's tea


Continued From Page 1A
during events like the
Revolutionary and Civil Wars,
the outcomes for each might
have been different.
"Every month should be
Women's History Month as far
the content of classes goes,"
McMahon said. "But the cele-
bration of one month lets
people recognize the contribu-
tions from women here and
abroad."
Dr. Athena Randolph, pedia-
trician, was the keynote speak-
er for the event. Randolph is
the owner of Randolph
Medical Practices.
Randolph began by telling


the audience the advice her
sons gave her about the speech.
"They said make it brief,"
Randolph said.
Randolph's speech incorpo-
rated LCCC's theme of
Generations of Women
Moving History Forward.
Randolph said that all
women moving forward are
making footsteps for future
generations of women to
follow in.
Randolph spoke of prominent
women in history making foot-
steps toward equality for all peo-
ple, no matter race or gender.
"These are the footsteps of


bravery and courage, these
are the footsteps of determina-
tion, these are the footsteps of
innovation," Randolph said.
"We must provide footsteps to
expand the endless possibili-
ties for generations to come."
After the awards presenta-
tion, all guests were invited to
tea by Women's History Month
Committee Chairperson Toni
Briley.
LCCC celebrated women's
history throughout the month
by showcasing movies about
women from all over the world.
The movies can be checked out
at the LCCC library.


MEETING: Mental Health Court discussed
Continued From Page 1A


Health Court take. place in
August in Columbia County
and expanding to the other
seven counties in the Third
Judicial Court next year.
He said the Mental Health
Cburt could prevent crime and
stop the jail.from serving as a
revolving door for some crimi-
nals who repeatedly are arrest-
ed for similar crimes.
'This works well in counties
using this method," Douglas
said.
Similar to .the county's cur-
rent working drug court, the
Mental Health Court will be
designed for people charged
with a crime that have been
diagnosed with a mental illness.
Starnes said if the defendants
agree to go through the treat-


ment, they may have their
charges dropped. This is a vol-
untary program, not something
that is required of the person
charged with the crime.
Starnes said the person will
enter into a contract and go
through the programrn.,which
usually takes about six months
to complete, all the while hav-
ing their status reviewed
weekly by the Mental Health
Court judge.
In some cases, it may just be
that the person charged with
the crime refused to take a
required medication. The pro-
gram would ensure that the
medication prescribed to them
is being taken in an orderly
fashion.
Starnes said the program


began in 2002 in the Fort
Myers area, where he pre-
sides, and the program has
seen more than 200 people. Of
those 200, 61 percent of those
completed the program, and of
those that completed the pro-
gr� , 66 percent have had no
new criminal offenses.
The program originally began
with only non-violent misde-
meanor cases, but has expanded
to include more serious crimes,
such as battery on a law enforce-
ment officer and some felony
domestic violence cases.
He said the courts system
has received a positive
response from the community
in the Fort Myers area since
its implementation.


CIVIL: Rights addressed by lawmakers
Continued From Page 1A


and state Clemency Board.
"What you will notice is a lot
of states are asking for an apol-
ogy," said state Sen. Tony Hill,
D-Jacksonville, a sponsor of
Florida's bill. "This is one of
our apologies right here."
Virginia lawmakers recently
passed a resolution expressing
"profound regret" for slavery,
and Maryland, Missouri and
Georgia are considering
similar measures.
The Florida bill, similar to a


high blood pressure, she said.
Firefighting is a physically
demanding job that involves
heavy lifting of equipment and
exposure to toxic chemicals.
Recruits are generally healthy
and physically fit, but their
health can decline over time
because many firehouses don't
require regular exercise or
yearly medical exams. Also, the
health requirements are usually
less stringent for volunteers,
who tend to continue firefight-
ing as they age, a time when
most heart problems occur.
In the Harvard study,
researchers examined a federal
registry of 1,144 on-duty fire-
fighter deaths between 1994 and
2004. Excluded were the 343
firefighters who perished in the
Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Nearly 40 percent - or 449
- of the on-duty deaths dur-
ing that period were due to
heart disease. Thirty-two per-
cent of the heart-related


law passed in Alabama last year
following the death of civil-
rights hero Rosa Parks, is
another approach to addressing
an ugly chapter in U.S. history.
When Parks died at the age of
92 in 2005, her conviction for
failing to move to the back of a
Montgomery, Ala., bus was still
on her record.
The Florida bill says the state
Clemency Board should
"strongly consider granting" an
automatic pardon to those con-


deaths occurred while fighting
blazes; 13 percent responding
to an alarm; 17 percent return-
ing from a call and 13 percent
during physical training.
The researchers also calculat-
ed the odds of dying from a heart
attack by taking into account the
estimated amount of tire spent
performing different duties.
They found the risk of death
from heart disease was highest
during active firefighting - up
to 100 times greater than the
risk of dying during administra-
tive work - though firefighting
made up no more than 5 percent
of a firefighters' time. Increased
risk of death was also found for
other emergency duties such as
responding to a call and return-
ing from the scene of a fire.
Researchers believe mental
stress and overexertion com-
bined with factors such as
being overweight and in poor
shape may increase the risk of
dying from heart disease.


victed of civil disobedience
crimes against segregation laws
or ordinances once an applica-

Commission. The legislation
cannot require the pardon
because the Clemency Board,
headed by the governor, has
the final say. State attorneys can
object, within 60 days of an
application's filing, that the con-
viction did not come from vio-
lating a discriminatory law,
leading to a hearing.

MERIT: Senate
Continued From Page 1A

The bill's sponsor, Senate
Prekindergarten-12
Committee Chairman Don
Gaetz, agreed with many of
the STAR critics although he is
a staunch supporter of merit
pay. He said it's important to
reward teachers and in-school
administrators who are most
successful in helping students
learn.
"STAR has been not only a
deeply flawed experiment by
the Department of Education,
but I think it's also been a real
distraction," Gaetz, R-Niceville,
said in an interview.
Gaetz was involved in the
controversy on the local level
as Okaloosa County's school
superintendent before he was
elected to the Legislature in
November. He said he
resigned from the Department
of Education's STAR advisory
committee because the agency
was "not interested in the
advice of people who were


passes alternate measure


actually affected."
One of teachers' biggest
problems with STAR is a
strict requirement that 5 per-
cent bonuses be paid to at
least 25 percent of teachers.
The new program would give
school districts leeway to
award bonuses ranging from
5 percent to 10 percent of dis-
trict average salaries. The
number of teachers getting
bonuses would be limited
mainly by the amount of


money appropriated.
The bill would reallocate a
$147.5 million STAR appropria-
tion, which has not yet been dis-
tributed to districts, to the new
program. For the current
school year, districts would
have the option of sticking with
their STAR plans,
conforming to the new law or
reverting to local pre-STAR
plans. Next school year,
though, all would have to com-
ply with the new program.

Are you hot enough? Dating Web site targets 'fit, good-looking' people


By DANIELA FLORES
Associated Press
TRENTON, NJ. - Jason
Pellegrino (an 8.2 on the
attractiveness scale) says the
problem with Internet dating
services is not enough really
hot-looking people.
So he and a business partner
have created HotEnough.org, a
sort of online version of Studio
54, the exclusive '70s disco
where gaining admission was a
pitiless Darwinian exercise.
HotEnough.org is for "fit,
good-looking" people.
Prospective members must
submit pictures and must be
rated an 8 or higher by people
already in the club. Once
they're in, they are permitted
to e-mail other "hotties" for
$9.95 a month.
"It's definitely hard to get
through that rope, but once
you're in, you're in and you're
part of the party," Pellegrino
said. "But you know there's
going to be a lot of people out-
side waiting."
The 33-year-old Nutley resi-
dent said he and his partner,
Sean . Cohen of Fort
Lauderdale, created the site
after concluding that Internet
dating sites attract a lot of
brave and desperate people but
not particularly attractive ones.
A few months after its
launch, membership is just
under 1,000, Pellegrino said.
In the beginning, only 8 per-
cent of those who applied
made the grade, but now
about 25 percent of applicants
do, he said.
Candidates must send in
three pictures, including one
full-body shot. Active mem-


hair and goes to the gym four
to five times a week.
Using HotEnough.org
"saves time and it does the
searching for you, narrows it
down to the people that you
are interested in meeting,"
he said.
Among those who didn't
make the cut was Jeanette
Ponder, a 28-year-old Internet
blogger from East Orange
who considered herself an 8
or 9. She said she applied
because she thought it would
make a good story.


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Jason Pellegrino, 33, who runs a dating web site called
'HotEnough.org' poses with the site's home page in South Orange,
N.J. recently. Prospective members of the web site must submit
pictures and must be rated an 8 or higher by people already in the
club. Once they're in, they are permitted to e-mail other 'hotties' for
$9.95 a month.


bers rate the pictures online
without knowing anything
else about the people in them.
"People can say that the site
is shallow, they can say it's
superficial, but I think we're all
a bit superficial when it comes
to dating," Pellegrino said.


One of the "hotties" accept-
ed into the club is Jimmy
Ziomek, a 29-year-old from
New York City who rated an
8.2. Ziomek, who said his job
in real estate keeps him from
going out much, is 5-foot-1l,
has blue eyes and light brown


"I got rated at like 5.7," she
said. "When you put yourself
out there in any situation,
even if it's one which you're
not taking seriously, it's going
to sting."
But she also reasoned: "You
cannot make a relationship by
being arm candy."
Like it or not, HotEnough.org
operates according to a princi-
ple that watchers of the singles
scene have long recognized:
"People tend to end up with
partners who match them in
physical attractiveness," said


Margaret Clark, a professor of
psychology at Yale University.
Pellegrino, whose day job
as a project manager for a
construction company in
Maplewood leaves little time
for dating, is 5-foot-10 and 180
pounds, has brown eyes and a
bright smile, goes to the gym
at least three times a week
and gets his stylish haircut
touched up every two weeks.
He was happy to make it onto
his own Web site.
"I see myself more in like
the 7.5 range," he said.


"Haven Hospice helped us keep our commitment to Mom. She
wanted to be at home, and we wanted to make sure that her
wishes were carried out. Haven Hospice allowed us to do
that. They were just so wonderful."

Gore implores Congress to save the planet


By NEDRA PICKLER
Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Al Gore,
who has reversed his political
fortunes to become a potential
contender in the 2008 presi-
dential race, made an emo-
tional return to Congress
Wednesday in an appeal for an
even more dramatic rescue -
saving the planet.
Gore - who is one of vot-
ers' top choices for the
Democratic presidential nomi-
nation even though he says
he's not running - implored
lawmakers to adopt a list of
policy prescriptions to stop
global warming.
Fresh off a triumphant
Academy Awards appearance
in which his climate change
documentary "An Incon-
venient Truth" won two
Oscars, Gore drew overflow
crowds as he testified before
House and Senate panels about
a "true planetary emergency" if
Congress fails to act He said
addressing the problem is a
moral issue and should not be
a partisan or political.
But Gore faced a more
skeptical reception than the
warm embrace he received
from Hollywood as
Republicans questioned the
science behind his testimony.
"You're not just off a little,
you're totally wrong," said


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Former Vice President Al Gore testifies on Capitol Hill in
Washington, Wednesday, before a joint hearing of the House
Energy and Commerce, and Science and Technology
subcommittees on climate change.


Texas Rep. Joe Barton, the
leading Republican on the
House Energy and Commerce
Committee, as he challenged
Gore's conclusion that carbon
dioxide emissions cause ris-
ing global temperatures.
Barton and Gore's exchange
grew testy at one point -
Barton demanding that Gore
get to the point and Gore
responding that he would like
time to answer without being
interrupted.
"Global warming science
is uneven and evolving,"
Barton said.
Gore insisted that the link is


beyond dispute and is the
source of broad agreement in
the scientific community.
"The planet has a fever,"
Gore said. "If your baby has a
fever, you go to the doctor. If
the doctor says you need to
intervene here, you don't say,
'Well, I read a science fiction
novel that told me it's not a
problem.' If the crib's on fire,
you don't speculate that the
baby is flame retardant. You
take action."
Gore appeared before a
joint hearing by two House
committees, with his wife,
Tipper, sitting behind him.

BRIEFS

Geese eggs to
be scrambled
CHICAGO - The city needs
a flock of volunteers - for
goose egg patrol.
Park District officials are
enlisting people to help locate
nests of goose eggs as part of
an expanded program aimed at
downsizing the population of
the aggressive park-fouling
birds.
The patrols will search 11 city
parks for goose eggs during the
birds' nesting season, which
begins at the end of the month
and lasts through April:
The volunteers will be taught
about geese habitats and life
cycles, but they won't be
allowed to handle the eggs.
That task will be reserved for
employees of La Grange-based
Wild Goose Chase, who will
shake the eggs to destroy the
embryo or coat them with corn
oil to suffocate the developing
chick.
"I can't stress enough, this is
not an Easter egg hunt," said
Susan Hagberg, president of
Wild Goose Chase. 'This is
very regulated. If people think
they can do this on their own,
they can't."

Society finds a pair
of antique safes
MONROE, Conn. - Monroe
Historical Society members
delighted in the recent
discovery of two antique safes
on their property. What they need
now is an antique safe cracker.
The 300-pound safes might
hold treasures that help shed
light on the 184-year-old town's
rich history,
Or, they could be empty.
It'll remain a mystery until the
historical society finds someone
who can coax open the old
locks, because the combinations
seem to be lost to the ages.
Officials found the safes about
two months ago behind a
furnace in an old farmhouse
owned by the society. The
farmhouse was also full of old
theatrical costumes and other
vintage artifacts.
Now, they are putting out a
call for a skilled volunteer
locksmith capable of opening the
Victorian-era safes without
damaging them or their contents.

Two plead guilty in
corruption case
ROANOKE, Va. - A former
sheriff's deputy and a former
probation officer charged with
taking part in a scheme to sell
drugs seized from criminals
pleaded guilty Tuesday under
agreements with prosecutors.
Steven Preston, 37, the
former Henry County sheriff's
deputy, pleaded guilty in U.S.
District Court to one charge of
racketeering conspiracy,
according to a news release
from the U.S. Attorney's Office.
He faces up to 20 years in
prison and a $250,000 fine.
Former probation officer
Carlton Riley, 42, faces a
minimum five years in prison
for attempted drug distribution.
The maximum penalty is 40
years in prison and a $2 million
fine.
The pair were among 20
people, including former sheriff
H. Franklin Cassell and 12 other
members of the department,
indicted last fall in the Henry
County corruption case.

Nowak developing
training courses
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas -
The former astronaut fired by
NASA after she was charged
with trying to kidnap a romantic
rival will develop flight lesson
plans as part of her new military
assignment.
Navy Capt. Lisa Nowak will
work on developing curriculum
and training programs when
she joins the staff of the Chief
of Naval Air Training Command
in Corpus Christi next month,
said a Navy spokesman, Lt.
Sean Robertson.
She was originally expected
to report for work this week, but
Robertson said Nowak will start
her new job in April.
Nowak was arrested Feb. 5


on suspicion of confronting a
romantic rival in a parking lot at
the airport in Orlando, Fla.
Police said Nowak
pepper-sprayed Air Force Capt.
Colleen Shipman, the girlfriend
of astronaut Bill Oefelein, and
had in her possession a BB
gun, steel mallet, knife and
rubber tubing.
NASA fired Nowak a month
later, and the Navy said she
would be transferred to the
Corpus Christi command. She
is free on bail.

Man pleads not guilty

in terrorism case


By JOHN SEEWER
Associated Press
TOLEDO, Ohio - A
Chicago man pleaded not
guilty Wednesday to federal
charges that he plotted to
recruit and train terrorists to
attack U.S. and allied troops.
Khaleel Ahmed is charged
with conspiring with his
cousin and three Ohio men
between June 2004 and
February 2006 to kill or maim
Americans overseas, includ-
ing those in Iraq.
Ahmed, 26, and his cousin
Zubair A. Ahmed, 27, were
arrested last month; Zubair
Ahmed has yet to enter a plea.
Three Toledo-area men -
Mohammad Zaki Amawi,
Marwan Othman El-Hindi,
and Wassim I. Mazloum -
were charged in the same
case early last year and have
pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors allege the con-
spiracy included finding
recruits to commit terrorist
acts and seeking out sites for
training in firearms, hand-to-
hand combat and the use of
explosives. The men also
allegedly agreed to raise funds

Prosecutors said that in
2004 the Ahmed cousins met
with El-Hindi and a former
U.S. military man who federal
prosecutors say helped foil the
plot.
Khaleel Ahmed's attorney,
Brian Sieve, said after the
hearing that he has not
received any additional infor-
mation from the government
about why his client was
charged.
Ahmed, through his attor-
ney, asked to be released on
electronic monitoring and
home confinement because
he has no prior convictions. A
hearing on -the request was
set for April 9.

Indonesian militants found guilty in schoolgirl beheadings


By IRWAN FIRDAUS
Associated Press
JAKARTA, Indonesia -
Three Islamic militants were
found guilty Wednesday of
decapitating three Christian
schoolgirls in Indonesia and
dumping their bloodied heads
in nearby villages, judges
said. They were sentenced to
between 14 and 20 years.
The alleged members of


the al Qaida-linked Jemaah
Islamiyah network left a hand-
written note close to the bod-
ies of the teenagers, vowing
more killings to avenge the
deaths of Muslims in earlier
sectarian violence on Sulawesi
island.
"Wanted - 100 more
heads," said Judge Lilik
Mulyadi, reciting the letter's
text. "Blood must be paid with
blood, lives with lives, heads


with heads."
Hasanuddin, 34, who goes
by a single name, was sen-
tenced to 20 years for master-
minding the 2005 attack, and
co-conspirators Lilik
Purnomo, 28, and Irwanto
Irano, 29, each got 14 years,
he said.
Indonesia, the world's most
populous Muslim nation, has
been hit by a string of terror-
ist attacks in recent years tar-


getting local Christians and
nightclubs, restaurants and
foreign embassies.
But the grisly nature of the
beheadings, which occurred
as the girls were cutting
through a cocoa plantation on
their way to school, gave fresh
impetus to the country's war
on terrorism and was followed
by scores of arrests.
The three militants had
faced a maximum penalty of


death by firing squad, but
judges ruled that they
deserved some leniency for
cooperating with authorities,
confessing and showing
remorse.
Siregar told the Central
Jakarta District Court that
Hasanuddin ordered the slay-
ings and helped dumped their
girls' heads in three Christian-
dominated villages. Purnomo
and Irano were found guilty of


"ambushing and beheading"
the teens, he said.
It was not immediately
clear if the three convicts
would appeal.
More than 90 percent of
Indonesia's 220 million people
are Muslims, but Central
Sulawesi province - the
scene of religious clashes that
left at least 1,000 people dead
from 1998 to 2002. A peace
agreement ended the worst.

Siberian mine
explosion kills 108
NOVOKUZNETSK, Russia -
Flooded caverns and flammable
gas hampered the search
Wednesday for two workers
missing after an explosion at a
Siberian coal mine, as Russia
held a day of mourning for the
108 miners killed in the
country's worst mining disaster
in more than a decade.
Flags flew at half-staff,
church services were held
nationwide and TV stations took
entertainment programs off the
air Wednesday to mourn the
victims of the mining disaster as
well as for two other tragedies
- a nursing home fire that left
63 dead and a weekend plane
crash that.killed six.
President Vladimir Putin led
televised minutes-of-silence
with his Cabinet, the head of
the Russian Orthodox Church
broadcast condolences and
lawmakers called for a full
investigation of the disasters.

Iranian leader talks
of 'illegal' steps
TEHRAN, Iran - Iran's top
leader warned Wednesday his
country will pursue "illegal
actions" if the U.N. Security
Council insists it halt uranium
enrichment, an apparent
reference to nuclear activities
outside international
regulations.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei also
warned the United States that
Iran would fight back with "all its
capacities" if attacked.
Iran says it will never give up
its right under the treaty to
enrich uranium and produce
nuclear fuel. But it has offered
to provide guarantees that its
nuclear program won't be
diverted toward weapons - as
the U.S. and some of its allies
fear.

Foreign militants
killed in Pakistan
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -
Pakistan's government said
Wednesday that fighting this
week between local and foreign
militants near the Afghan
border, which has killed about
100 people, is testament to the
success of efforts to get
tribesmen to root out al-Qaida
fighters.
But the bloodshed also
underscores the government's
inability to police the region and
could unleash a cycle of
violence between the warring
factions, experts warned.
At least two children were
killed and around 20 wounded
when a stray mortar round hit
their school bus after the
fighting broke out Monday in
South Waziristan, where
international humanitarian
agencies have no access.

North Korea's
nuclear plan stalled
BEIJING - Stalled six-nation
talks on the nuclear
disarmament of North Korea are
being extended for at least a
day, Japan's envoy to the
negotiations said Wednesday.
The negotiations were
supposed to end Wednesday
but have made no progress
since Monday because of a
dispute over $25 million in North
Korean funds that were frozen
in a Macau bank under.
pressure from the United
States.
U.S. officials announced this
week that the money would be
transferred to the North
Koreans, saying it was up to the
Monetary Authority of Macau, a
Chinese territory, to release the
funds. The authority has refused
to say when the money would
be released.Russian envoy
Alexander Losyukov told the
ITAR-Tass news agency that the
Bank of China had refused to
accept the transfer because of
worries about coming under
U.S. financial sanctions.
Telephones at the Bank of
China rang unanswered.

Somali gunmen drag and burn


dead foes through capital streets

MOGADISHU, Somalia -
Masked gunmen dragged
slain soldiers through the
streets of Somalia's capital
Wednesday, then set the bod-
ies on fire as jeering crowds
threw rocks and kicked the
dead after a fierce battle in a
neighborhood loyal to Islamic
insurgents.
At least 16 people were
reported killed and dozens
were wounded in the hours-
long firefight, which was
some of the heaviest fighting
.in Mogadishu since a radical
Muslim militia was driven
from the city in December
after six months in power.
An Associated Press pho-
tographer saw six corpses -
all soldiers for the U.N.-
backed interim government
or their Ethiopian allies -
burned and mutilated while


Militants continue attacks on govemmen


The dragging of slain
government soldiers
through Mogadishu s
streets Wednesday was
reminiscent of the ,-..

pounded one charred body
with rocks.
A similar scene in
Mogadishu grabbed the
world's attention in 1993 when
militiamen shot down a U.S.
Black Hawk helicopter during
an attempt to capture a war-
lord and dragged around dead
American soldiers. The
Clinton administration pulled
out U.S. troops, and U.N.
peacekeepers soon followed
suit, leaving Somalia to years
of anarchy.
One masked man,
Abdinasir Hussein, said he
dragged a soldier's corpse
behind his motorbike. He told
AP he wanted to show that
Somalis will defeat the
"invaders," referring to the
troops from neighboring
Ethiopia that helped

Police: Children used as

decoy in car bombing


By KIM GAMEL
Associated Press

BAGHDAD - Police said
Wednesday that children were
used in a weekend car bomb-
ing in which the driver gained
permission to park in a busy
shopping area after he pointed
out that he was leaving his
children in the back seat.
The account appeared to
confirm one given Tuesday by
a U.S. general. He said chil-
dren were used in a Sunday
bombing in northern Baghdad
and labeled it a brutal new tac-
tic put to use by insurgents to
battle a five-week-old security
crackdown in the capital.
Maj. Gen. Michael Barbero,
deputy director for regional
operations on the Joint Staff,
said the vehicle used in the
attack was waved through a
U.S. military checkpoint
because two children were
visible in the back seat. He
said it was the first reported
use of children in a car bomb-
ing in Baghdad.


"Children in the back seat
lowered suspicion, (so) we let
it move through, they parked
the vehicle, the adults run out
and detonate it with the chil-
dren in the back," Barbero told
reporters in Washington.
Other U.S. officials said
later that three Iraqi
bystanders were killed in the
attack near a marketplace in
the northern Baghdad neigh-
borhood of Azamiyah, besides
the two children, and seven
people were injured. The offi-
cials had no other details,
including the estimated ages
of the children.
Lt. Col. Christopher Garver,
a U.S. military spokesman in
Baghdad, confirmed Barbero's
account but said he couldn't
provide more details.
Two policemen, speaking
on condition of anonymity
because of security concerns,
said the general was referring
to a car bomb Sunday that
killed eight Iraqis and wound-
ed 28 others in the predomi-
nantly Shiite district of Shaab.


SWIFT's trans-Atlantic transfer

Few people had heard of

But SWIFT CEO Leonard
H. Schrank dismisses the crit-
icism, saying there were cru-
cial security issues at stake.
"When you are dealing with
terrorism investigations you
don't exactly tell everybody
about it," he said in an
interview at the company's
headquarters, located on the
southern outskirts of
Brussels.
SWIFT, a consortium set up
by member banks, was found-
ed in 1973 and operates one of
the largest financial transfer
systems in the world. It is
responsible for the collection
and relay of over 11 million
financial transactions daily
between 7,800 banks and
other financial institutions in

Meyer begins rebuilding


with youthful Gators


Young Florida team
began spring drills
on Wednesday.
By MARK LONG
Associated Press
GAINESVILLE - Florida
coach Urban Meyer spent his
first spring evaluating and his
second one fine-tuning.
His third one is all about
rebuilding.
The defending national
champion Gators opened
spring practice Wednesday
with one , goal: finding
replacements for 14 starters,
including nine on defense,
from the team that dominated
Ohio State in the title game.
It could be a challenge,
especially with a small


number of upperclassmen
waiting in the wings. Meyer
will have seven seniors and
eight juniors to rely on for
leadership during spring
drills.
"We're not a good team,"
Meyer said last week. "We're
a little bit of a train wreck
right now. You can't have
seven seniors at the
University of Florida. It's not a
real positive right now."
The Gators lost every
starter on defense except for
end Derrick Harvey - the
defensive MVP of the title
game - and safety Tony
Joiner. End Jarvis Moss, safe-
ty Reggie Nelson, cornerback
Ryan Smith and linebacker
Brandon Siler could have
returned for another year, but
they decided to leave early for


the NFL.
"I wish I could say we're
going to make another run,"
Meyer said. "I have no idea.

Several young players will

expect Brandon Spikes and
Dustin Doe to step in without
much trouble.
The secondary and defen-

College baseball jumped on
FCCJ for four runs in the first
inning and rode them to a
9-4 win at home on
Wednesday.:
Manuel Garcia improved to
51, as he went. 7w ' innings
with three hits, one run, four
walks and six strikeouts.
Scott Mancauskas relieved
with one out in the eighth
inning and got out with one
walk and one strikeout.
Patrick Clysdale pitched
the ninth inning and was
roughed up for two hits and
three runs (two earned) with
one walk, two wild pitches
and one strikeout.
The stumbling finish left a
bad taste in coach Tom
Clark's mouth.
"If we can get out of here in
seven (mercy rule), we have
arms saved for the weekend,"
Clark said. "We tend to sit on
a lead. We did that at Santa Fe
and came home a loser. We
have talent, but we just have
these lapses."
After scoring the four runs
in the first inning, the
Timberwolves had runners
on first and second with no
outs and left them stranded.
Sam Testa and Jovan Rosa
walked, around Greg Blake
getting hit by a pitch. Stephen
Carr singled in a run and

Federer pays Woods a visit


during practice round


Tour officials asked
Federer to leave, but
Woods gave invite.
By DOUG FERGUSON
Associated Press
MIAMI - The No. 1 player
wasn't even the most popular
in his own group Wednesday,
and that was OK with Tiger
Woods.
Roger Federer came out to
watch him play Doral.
"It's pretty neat when you
have probably the most
dominant athlete on the planet
out there in your gallery,"
Woods said after his practice
round for the CA
Championship, where he is
the two-time defending


champion.
This is the first time Woods
and Federer, the top
players in their sports, have
competed the same week in
the same city. Federer's
opening tennis match is
Saturday night in the Sony
Ericsson Open at
Key Biscayne.
. Woods and Federer, both
IMG clients, struck up a
friendship last summer when
Woods sat in Federer's box
during the U.S. Open final.
Federer watched him play
in Shanghai during the
HSBC Champions last
November, and they were
together again in Dubai last
month.-
"I had never really seen live
golf from professionals up


until the last year," Federer
said. "It's different from
sitting in a stadium watching
soccer or a tennis match.
You've got to know where to
stand to see the ball. For me,
it was hard to follow the ball. I
lost it just because he hits it so
hard and so far."
The hardest part was
getting a view from inside the
ropes.
Dressed in blue jeans, an
untucked collared shirt and a
black cap, Federer showed up
on the back nine and was
swarmed by fans wanting
autographs. A tournament
official let him inside the
ropes, but PGA Tour officials
said he couldn't stay.
Only when Woods invited
him in did Federer get some


two-run double in the ninth
inning.
Craig Page was the losing
pitcher and both Kory
Benson and Justin Mauldin
pitched one inning.

GAINESVILLE - Tom
Jones, the longtime Florida
women's track and field coach
who tutored a handful of
Olympic athletes, died
Wednesday after battling
cancer, the school said. He
was 62.
Jones' coaching career
included 23 school records at
Florida, including the
American record in the 400
meter by future 1996 U.S.
gold medal participant
Maicel Malone. His team
also broke the American
record for the 1,600 meter
relay while Jones coached
at Arizona State in 1991.
He also coached at North
Carolina State and Texas-El
Paso.
Since his hire in 1992,
Jones led Florida's squads to
six Southeastern Conference
titles and was named the
NCAA Women's National
Indoor Coach of the Year in
1997 and 2002 and the NCAA
Outdoor Coach of the Year in
1997.
Jones is survived by his
wife, two sons and
grandchildren.

NORTH FLORIDA SPEEDWAY


Chance earns an W in B-Mods


By JON HARNEY
Special to the Reporter

Fifteen B-Modifieds took
the green at North Florida
Speedway on St. Patrick's Day.
Jamie Carter led the way
for the first five laps and was
pulling away when he spun
his car in the first turn on lap
six. This gave the lead to
Hollywood Owen who
slugged it out with Ronnie
Chance over the next five laps
until Chance wrestled the
lead away. From that point
Chance raced unchallenged
to the checkers to take his
second win in 2007.
Hollywood Owen held on
for second ahead of Gene
Owen, Vennis Pipkin and
John Timbie.
Kevin Mills and David
Ponton battled for Street Stock
supremacy for the first 10 laps
until Ponton lost the handle on
his car on the back stretch and
fell out of contention. Mills
was able to run the table in the
closing laps to take his first
win of the season.
Casey Murphy worked his
way into second ahead of Cliff


Crawford, Nick Reid and John
Coffey.
Heath Walker passed pole-
sitter Travis Barnes on the
third lap and led the 17-car
Hobby Stock field in the early
laps. Last week's feature
winner, Scotty Nolan, started
in eighth, but was not going
to be denied as he sliced into
second on lap six and needed
just four more laps to over-
take Walker and seize a lead
he would never relinquish.
Walker kept Nolan within
sight, but had nothing for the
No. 59 at the end. The top five
were Nolan, Walker, Michael
Havard, David Miller Jr. and
Barnes.
Another large field of Pure
Stocks gave the crowd plenty
of thrills and spills. The
20-something car field left no
position unchallenged.
At the top of the heap, Billy
Smith and Shane Taylor
waged war through open
track and through traffic.
Smith was stronger in the
open field while Taylor was
better in the trenches. A late
caution worked to Smith's
benefit as that guaranteed a


clear track ahead and played
to his advantage.
Smith raced to his first
victory and snapped Taylor's
winning streak. Behind the
lead duo Gerald Lewis
finished third ahead of Clay
McRae and Russ Moseley.
Kyle Van Sickle crushed
the Mini Stock field. Van
Sickle was in the process of
lapping the third- and fourth-
place cars before a yellow flag
with a handful of laps remain-
ing temporarily ended the
beatdown.
Van Sickle had no problem
resuming his dominance
when the green flag. came
back out and coasted to
victory. James Conway was a
distant ;second and was
followed in the standings by
Tonya Lewis, Jonathan
Rutledge and Denny Conway.
Winged Sprint cars make
their first 2007 appearance at
North Florida Speedway this
Saturday. The Modifieds,
Street Stocks, Hobby Stocks
and Pure Stocks will also race
heats and features. Gates
open at 4 p.m. and racing
begins at 7 p.m.

Tennessee aiming to


slow Oden, Buckeyes


By JAIME ARON
Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO -
Tennessee's Bruce Pearl is far
too good of a talker to frame
his team's upcoming game
against Ohio State in worn-out
coachspeak.
So when he essentially says
"it's not Greg Oden, it's the
rest of the Buckeyes" that he's
focused on containing
Thursday night, at least give
him the benefit of the doubt
and listen to his explanation.
Start with the background.
The Volunteers faced Ohio
State in Oden's 10th game of
the season, back in January,
when Oden was adjusting to
the college game and still
wearing a brace on the
surgically repaired right wrist
that delayed the start of his
college career.
Those things were sup-
posed to be holding him
down. Instead, he had his first
monster game: 24 points, 15
rebounds, perfect from the
foul line (6-for-6), four assists,
three blocks and a steal in 36
minutes.
Yet the Buckeyes, playing at
home, still needed what was

then a career-high in points
from freshman point guard
Mike Conley and a 3-pointer
from Ron Lewis with 11.2 sec-
onds left to beat the
Volunteers 68-66.
Ohio State (32-3) hasn't lost
since, a run of 19 in a row it
takes into a semifinal against
Tennessee (24-10) in the
NCAA tournament's South
Regional.
Pearl spent this week study-
ing his team's near-miss in
Columbus and most of the


other 18 games in the
Buckeyes' run. After conclud-
ing there's no stopping Oden
- "He's unlike anybody I've
ever gone up against," Pearl
said - he set his sights on
everyone else wearing red
and white.
And the part that scares
him the most?
"They've not broken out
yet," Pearl said. "They've not
had that breakout game that
we all know they're capable
of."


Gene Upshaw re-elected as

NFLPA executive director


Associated Press

WAILEA, Hawaii - Gene
Upshaw was re-elected
Wednesday for his ninth
consecutive three-year term
as executive director of the
NFL Players Association.
The 62-member board of
player representatives,
meeting here, voted
unanimously to re-elect the
former guard for the Raiders,
a member of the Pro Football
Hall of Fame. Upshaw, 61, was
first elected to the position in
1982, immediately after his
playing career ended.
The election was
considered a formality after


the union in February
extended Upshaw's contract
through 2010.
The NFL has had two work
stoppages, in 1982 and again
in 1987, but has had labor
peace for two decades:
Upshaw and former league
commissioner Paul Tagliabue
developed a strong
relationship that led to
generally amicable
negotiations and several
extensions of the collective
bargaining agreement.
Under Upshaw's
leadership, the players also
secured free agency, although
few contracts are guaranteed.
And although the NFLPA


agreed to a salary cap, it has
soared in the last two years
from $85.5 million to
$109 million. With it has come
huge contracts, even for
non-stars.
Upshaw's primary concern
recently has been
misbehavior off the field by
players. He addressed the
growing problem before the
Super Bowl.
"The last thing I tell every
team when I visit is that the
only thing that can mess up
the collective bargaining
agreement is the players
themselves," Upshaw said.
"We're very concerned about
that."


GATORS: Meyer aims to grow, not sustain

.Leak during his freshman
season. Tebow mostly ran in
short-yardage and goal-line
situations last season, so
Meyer hopes to hone his
passing skills in the spring.
The. Gators also lost center
Steve Rissler and receivers
Dallas Baker and Jemalle
Cornelius.
But after signing the
consensus No. 2 recruiting
class in 2006 and then adding
the top class last month,
Meyer has plenty of young
talent to help fill the void.
That's not always the best
situation, though.
"A lot of the younger guys
woke up on third base and
didn't hit the triple," Meyer
said. "That's a great way of
looking at it. All of a sudden

Woods said he would go to
Key Biscayne on Saturday
night to watch Federer.
They posed for pictures
beyond the 18th green, and
Federer walked through a
corridor of fans as they yelled
at Woods for an autograph.
Asked who gets more
attention, Woods said he
probably had a slight edge.
"I don't know if you'd call it
an advantage or disadvan-
tage," Woods said. "Globally, I
don't know. But certainly in
this country, I'm probably a
little bit more recognized than
he is."

already have enrolled at
Florida and will practice this
spring. The group includes
quarterbacks Bryan

Meyer signed three

said. "I think that's going to be
a great thing to watch as a
coach."
The rebuilding process
might not be nearly as
enjoyable.
"You watch the highlight
tapes, you watch the rerun (of
the title game) ... and you
realize that a lot of those guys
are gone," Meyer said. '"There
are so many positives from last
year that we have a heck of an
obligation or responsibility to
build upon that.
'There's no sustaining. If
you're sustaining, you're

Medlen undergoes 3-hour

surgery, critical after crash


Associated Press

GAINESVILLE - NHRA
driver Eric Medlen remained
in critical condition
Wednesday, days after a
test-session crash at
Gainesville Raceway.
Doctors at the University of
Florida medical center
performed a three-hour brain
surgery Tuesday night to
relieve pressure and
hemorrhaging, and Medlen
will be in a drug-induced coma
for two weeks, his racing team
said on its Web site.
University of Florida
medical center spokeswoman
Kim Jamerson declined
comment and referred calls
to the NHRA.
Medlen, a 33-year-old
California native, drives for
John Force Racing. He was
injured Monday when his
Funny Car crashed into a
guard wall.


Medlen


" W e
consider
ourselves
fortunate
that Eric is
in one of
the top hos-
pitals in the
world for


this type of injury and is get-
ting absolutely the best treat-
ment possible," John Medlen,
Eric's father and crew chief,
said in the statement.
John Medlen also thanked
the driver's fans, sponsors
and family members for their
support.
Gainesville Raceway
Executive General Manager
Don Robertson said Medlen
was driving in the left lane of
the track when his car
appeared to encounter a kind
of problem. Robertson said
the car then veered right and
hit the right guard wall, but
the specifics of the crash


have not been determined.
'"That's still up in the air
and their team, of course, is
going to have to evaluate all
of their stuff and see if they
can determine what exactly
went wrong," Robertson said.
NHRA spokesman Jerry
Archambeault said his organ-
ization will work with
Medlen's racing team to
figure out why the driver
crashed.
"Its important for us all to
look at what happens and
evaluate the cause," he said.
Archambeault said NHRA
has been in contact with the
team, but has been more
focused on Medlen, whom
Archambeault' called one of
"rising stars" of racing.
"Obviously our thoughts
and prayers are with Eric,
like everyone else in the
racing community, hoping he
has a speedy recovery,"
Archambeault said.


NFL prospects sweat through

first endorsement photo shoot


By TRAVIS REED
Associated Press

LAKE BUENA VISTA -
Former Cal running back
Marshawn Lynch was thrilled
with his pass - a tight 20-yard
spiral to former LSU quarter-
back JaMarcus Russell.
"Boy, I got it. I'm an
ex-quarterback," Lynch said,
cracking up.
Any time but Wednesday,
those roles would be reversed.
It felt like football season - or
at least training camp - as
Lynch, Russell and six other
top NFL draft picks ran speed
and agility drills on a 50-yard
practice field before lining up
for hours of pictures for a Nike
photo shoot.
Those two were joined by
former Georgia Tech WR
Calvin Johnson, Louisville DT
Amobi Okoye, Oklahoma RB


Adrian Peterson, Clemson
DE Gaines Adams, Michigan
CB Leon Hall and Miami TE
Greg Olsen.
The sweat was real, and so
was the barking coach
running drills to make 'the
players look game-ready.
"Olsen, lower to the
ground, spikes never come
off the grass," yelled Tom
Shaw, a former NFL strength
and conditioning assistant.
"Good, JaMarcus, good."
The pictures will be used on
magazine ads and a billboard.
Nike wouldn't say how much
the deals were worth.
Lynch, a junior who opted
out of his senior year, was the
biggest cutup. He had trouble
staying still - dancing and
baring his gold teeth in wide
grins. The photographer-had
to remind him to be quiet and
snapped a special shot of

"Just the experience out
here, my first time leaving
home besides going to Arizona
to train - it's a good feeling to
get out and kind of see the
world a little bit," Lynch said.
Notre Dame QB Brady
Quinn was supposed to be
there, but his pictures will be
shot later and edited in.
Replacing him was a 6-foot-4,
235-pound actor chosen
specifically for his profile.
Okoye, 6-foot-2 and 287
pounds, got caught yawning
when the rest of the players
were busy looking mean.
"It feels good, being out
here with all the guys, clown-
ing, taking pictures of our-
selves like we're models or
something," Okoye said.

DEAR ABBY

Student's college burnout may be

symptom of deeper problem


DEAR ABBY: You told
"Needs Help in Chicago"
(Feb. 10) to get back into col-
lege and see a counselor. I
wholeheartedly agree. I was
exactly like her. I avoided
other people, maintained
straight A's, had many offers
for scholarships, went to col-
lege and, shortly after, burned
out. I'm not sure about her,
but I had been raped and
molested at a young age, and
books became my escape
from the harsh reality of life.
There's a root. cause for
social avoidance, and it really
can leave you feeling lost and
adrift. I hope that girl will
seek mental health counsel-
ing before she goes back to
school. I'm sure it will change
many things for her for the
better. - T.B., JACK-
SONVILLE, FIA.
DEAR T.B.: Thank you for
reaching out to "Needs Help"
and sharing your personal
experience. I spotted the
same red flag in her letter,
which is why I hoped she'd
talk to a mental health profes-
sional. However, because I
was unsure of her financial sit-
uation, I felt she could most
easily find a therapist through
the school's student health
center. You are only one of
many readers who want to
help that young woman. Read
on:

counselor, I'm amazed at the
number of students who have

lives. Fortunately, there are
highly effective assessment
tools and counseling proto-
cols to help students identify
the kind of work they would
find fulfilling and rewarding,
and that would give meaning
to their lives. Helpful answers
are there if students get the
right counseling. - PATRI-
CIA BRESLIN,

DEAR ABBY: I am a col-
lege English professor. Far
too many students float
through my classes who go to
school only because their par-
ents expect them to. Their
attitude and grades often
reflect this.
I encourage my own chil-
dren (ages 17 and 20) to go
out and experience life before
going to college. I didn't start
college until my mid-30s, and
10 years later am working on a
Ph.D. As a result, I appreciat-
ed the experience much more
and got more value from my
tuition dollars. College right
out of high school is not the
answer for everyone. - CAR-
ING PROFESSOR, WASH-

DEAR ABBY: "Needs
Help in Chicago," who doesn't


know what to do with her life,
might consider joining the
Peace Corps or becoming a
VISTA or AmeriCorps volun-
teer. It's a wonderful way to
spend a few years, provides
valuable experiences and
looks good on a resume. It
would give her a chance to see
the world in a new way and
learn about herself. Anyone, at
any time in life, can do this. It's
a rewarding experience. -

DEAR ABBY: I dropped

Everyone I knew was sure I
was making the wrong deci-

ever made.
During my 2k� years off, I
participated in a semester
program through NOLS, the
National Outdoor Leadership
School (www.nols.edu). NOLS
offers scholarships, financial
aid and college credit. I rec-
ommend it to anyone seeking
direction and challenge in life.
Eventually, when I was
ready, I returned to school
and graduated with honors. I
now own my own business
and attribute my successes to
NOLS. I hope "Needs Help"
will seriously consider this
alternative to college. -

... crossover

Supercross champion is jumpirig from bikes to cars,
from peak of one sport to obscurity in another


By RICK MINTER,
Cox News Service,
Atlanta
L ast week, the great mo-
torcycle champion
Ricky Carmichael
waged an epic battle in a
Supercross event at Orlando,
Fla., eventually finishing a
close second to the red-hot
James Stewart.
This week, the rider billed
as the "greatest of all time"
will be starting over at the
bottom in motorsports.
Carmichael, with 156 victo-
ries and 15 championships in
motorcycle racing, has gotten
off his bike while he's com-
petitive to become a stock-car
driver. He'll start out in a Late
Model car, far from the roar of
the Supercross crowds like
:. the 70,649 in attendance at a
.-:- recent event at the Georgia
Dome in Atlanta or the 42,991
at Orlando.
His first car race will be a
regular Saturday night fea-
ture at the relatively obscure
. . Columbia Motorsports Park, a
1/2-mile oval in Lake City,
Fla., where several thousand
would be a good crowd.
Unlike many aging champi-
ons in other forms of motor-
sports who have found it hard
to give up the glory,
Carmichael seems eager to
get on to the next phase of his
life, even though he's riding
well enough to have scored


two motorcycle victories in a
limited schedule this year.
"I'm happy with what I've
accomplished," he said after a
recent ride. "There's no rea-
son for me to keep on going
and put myself at risk.
"You have to know when to
say when and not be greedy.
Now is the time."
He explained that although
it may seem like he and other
motocross riders can sail
through the air with the
greatest of ease, it's not that
way at all. For every jump,
there's a hard landing. Bad
crashes often mean broken
bones, all of which is making
him eager to switch to a form
of racing in which he's
strapped to a safe seat and
surrounded by a steel roll
cage.
"I won't miss the days of
Supercross racing where I
have to bust my hump all the
time during the week," he
said. "It's pretty tough.
There's so much time re-
quired. Your body takes a
beating. I'm only 27, but I have
a pretty good inclination of
what 35 feels like."
But starting over in stock
cars comes without a guaran-
tee or glamour, which is just
fine with him.'
"I'm glad I have. to start at
the bottom,", he said. "I don't
deserve to be up at the top
level. I'm not even close to
being ready to do that."


jj 1


Carmichael
will do his
Late Model
racing under
the tutelage of
veteran
NASCAR driver
Mark Martin.
He'll drive a car
owned by Martin. \
with Martin's son.
Matt, as a team-
mate.
So far, all
Carmichael has done
is run test laps by h im
self.
"I've done quite a bit of
driving," he said. "I'm BI
ready to go racing. It's time to
go out and get bumped-and
banged around and see what
we can do in a real-racing sit-
uation."
Martin, who will take a
break from driving Ginn
Racing's No. 01 Chevrolet in
Cup to tutor Carmichael, said
he wants to bring his pupil,
who also is under contract
with Ginn, up to speed slowly
"The first race will be a
light, easy weekly show, low
car count," Martin said.
"Then we'll ramp up from
there to a Super Late Model
series. ... We'll graduate him
when we think he's ready'"
The big question is whether
Carmichael's skills on two
wheels will transfer to four-

wheeled vehicles.
Nextel Cup driver Clint
Bowyer, who raced against
Carmichael for years in the
amateur motorcycle ranks,
said riding skills help car
drivers.
"I really feel like you learn
a lot of throttle control in mo
tocross," Bowyer said. "That
helped me.
"And you have to have a lot
of balance to drive these cars
and be fast and be up front
and be on ragged edge."
Carmichael's goal is to
.move from Late Models to a
mix of ARCA and Busch or
Craftsman Truck Series race
next year, then be racing full
time in one of NASCAR's top
three divisions by 2009.

OBSERVATIONS
S Some key story lines as the Cup Series heads to Bristol.
Car of today
I NASCAR's "Car of Tomorrow" label for its new car won't be
appropriate anymore. Beginning this week at Bristol Motor
Speedway, the car will be the "Car of Today" - at least for the
Food City 500 and 15 other events this season..
Most drivers, even the car's most vocal critics, have resigned
themselves to the fact that the car is here to stay and they'd better
learn to work with it.
"The more I think about it, the more that the Car of Tomorrow
is a little bit like the Vegas race," Jeff Burton said, referring to
the concerns in the garage about racing on a reconfigured Las
Vegas Motor Speedway "Going into the Vegas race, the sky was
falling and the world is coming to an end and everything as we
know it is going to end today
"Of course somebody won the race,
and somebody finished fifth, and some- NEXTEL CUP

I '"As many things as they are trying to

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

Catching up with some of the people who shaped the sport


LaJoie turns focus to safety issues


By RICK MINTER
Cox News Service
After 350 Busch Series starts, 15 victo-
ries, Busch Series championships in
1996 and '97, Randy LaJoie's driving ca-
reer is all but over. At age 45, his phone
has stopped ringing.
Last year, he drove three races, all in
marginal equipment, with poor results.
He helped Kevin Harvick prepare the
cars he drove in events that weren't run.
in conjunction with Cup races and
begged Harvick's car owner, Richard
Childress, to let him drive a few times.
But sponsors aren't willing to spend the
money for a driver his age, so LaJoie is
going to put his emphasis on his other
passion - racing safety.
He's going to spend the years ahead
traveling to short tracks across the na-
tion to preach safety in what he calls his
"Safer Racer Tour."
LaJoie, who owns a company that
builds racing seats, said there's a
tremendous lack of knowledge about
safety at the Saturday night tracks that
dot the countryside. He estimates that
only 30 percent of the cars that run each
week are as safe as they should be.
"There's a problem there," he said. "I
want to educate the drivers and the car


builders. The
[short-track] in-
dustry doesn't
understand
what we know
in the top three
divisions of
NASCAR. I'm
going to show
them."
Nextel Cup
LAJOIE driver Ken
Schradei, who
also owns and promotes dirt tracks in
the Midwest, supports LaJoie's program.
He said short-track drivers just need to
be shown the latest technology.
"They just don't know," Schrader said.
"Even guys who are winning, making a
living at it, the guys you read about in
the paper every week don't know."
Schrader said he sometimes points
out deficiencies he sees at a short track.
"They'll say, 'Yeah, we've been meaning
to fix that.' And I'll say 'Yeah, maybe you
ought to.'"
But Schrader said a big hindrance to
safer race cars are that drivers tend to
think, "It won't happen to me." And driv-
ers with limited racing budgets will
choose performance-enhancing products
like tires and shocks over safety items.


LaJoie said a lot of improvements can
be made by changing the way seats and
. safety belts are mounted in the cars. He
estimates that 90 percent of seat belts in
short-track cars aren't properly mount-
ed.
"These guys aren't bolting their stuff
in their cars properly, and that's some-
thing I want to see to," he said.
He's also going to show videos to driv-
ers and their families to let them know
what can happen to them in a crash. As
part of that, he's going to offer informa-
tion on products he doesn't produce, in-
cluding head-and-neck restraints, which
are mandatory for drivers in NASCAR's
top touring divisions.
"I don't let my kids run without [head-
and-neck restraints]," he said. "We
should never have another basal neck in-
jury in this sport."
He points out that even drivers in the
lowest divisions at local dirt tracks risk
grave injury or worse when they race an
unsafe car.
"Racetracks don't have SAFER walls,"
he said, referring to the impact-absorb-
ing barriers now in place at all major
NASCAR tracks. "At 35 mph, you hit .
something the wrong way, you're going '
to be going home in a pine box ... I'vegot
to get that message across."


Toyota woes
The Nextel Cup race at Atlanta Motor Speedway provided an-
other disappointment for the seven-team Toyota camp.
Only four of the seven made the race, and one of them, Dale
Jarrett, had to use the fourth of the six past-champion's provi-
sionals that he's allotted this year.
The only bright spot in the race came on Lap 89 when Brian
Vickers led a lap, the first ever in Cup for Toyota. But once again,
the finishes were disappointing. Dave Blaney was best in class at
27th. Jarrett was 36th, David Reutimann and Vickers both
crashed, finishing 40th and 42nd, respectively
Only one Toyota team, Jarrett's, is now in the top 35 in this
year's owner points, which assures starting positions for races
after next week at Bristol. He's 33rd.
Bill Davis, who owns the Toyotas driven by Blaney and Jeremy
Mayfield - who has yet to qualify for a race - said all the Toyota
teamris need to work together more to reverse their fortunes. The
best finish to date has been a 10th by Vickers at California
Speedway
"You would hope that the guys would see that we're all in a
hole, that we're not getting done what we need to do and are not
using the equipment that Toyota has offered to us," Davis said.
"We need to work together to make the best of it."
Blaney said that as far as he's concerned, the Camry itself isn't
the problem. He said his car is better in many ways than the
Dodge he drove last year.
"I think we're better in every area this year with horsepower
and downforce numbers," he said. "Our suspension package is
better, too. I think we are really better in every area."
The duel
If you had to pick two drivers to run wheel-to-wheel with the
checkered flag in the balance, it would be hard to beat Jimmie
Johnson and Tony Stewart.
Fans at Atlanta Motor Speedway last week can attest to that.
The two, arguably the sport's top stars at this point, ran almost
door-to-door for several laps late in the Kobalt Tools 500 before
Johnson dove under Stewart in Turn 2 and won for the second
straight week.
The two now have a combined 54 victories and three champi-
onships since they entered the Nextel Cup Series - Stewart in
1999 and Johnson in 2002 - and appear poised to record many.
more.
What's the pointss?
Mark Martin's voluntary surrender of the points lead isn't un-
precedented. NASCAR statisticians point out that Cale
Yarborough won the Daytona 500 in 1983, taking the points lead,
but didn't run the next race, at Richmond. In the inaugural sea-
son Cup circuit, Jim Roper won the opener at Charlotte, then
skipped the next race. Red Byron won the second event, then
skipped the fifth, but still won the title.
