Commission launches
campaign about Gulf
sturgeon in Suwannee.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission has
launched a public safety awareness
campaign alerting Suwannee River
boaters about the dangers of jumping
sturgeons.
FWC officials report that Gulf
sturgeon are returning to the
Suwannee River and boaters and
personal watercraft operators
should be aware of the possible dan-
gers posed by jumping sturgeons.
Last year eight people were
injured in direct sturgeon colli-
sions, while two other boaters suf-
fered injuries when they swerved
to avoid jumping sturgeon and hit a
bridge support in the river.
"We certainly don't want a repeat
of last year," said Maj. Bruce
Hamlin, regional commander for
the FWC's North Central region in
a prepared statement. "Just one
person getting hurt is too many.
We want people to be aware that
sturgeon are returning and the risk
of injury to boaters does exist."
Karen Parker, public information
coordinator for the FWC's North
Central region, said FWC officers
who patrol the Suwannee River
regularly have reported that stur-
geons are jumping now.

Defiant Democrats inch
closer to confrontation,
veto from president
By DAVID ESPO
AP Special Correspondent
WASHINGTON - A defiant,
Democratic-controlled Senate
approved legislation Thursday call-
ing for the withdrawal of U.S. com-
bat troops from Iraq within a year,
propelling Congress closer to an
epic, wartime veto confrontation
with President Bush.
The 51-47 vote was largely along
party lines, and like House passage
of a separate, more sweeping chal-
lenge to the administration's war
policies a week ago, fell far short of
the two-thirds margin needed to
overturn the president's threat-
ened veto. It came not long after
Bush and House Republicans made
a show of unity at the White House.
"With passage of
this bill, the Senate
sends a clear
message to the
president that we
must take the war
in Iraq in a new
direction."
- Sen. Robert C. Byrd,
D-W.Va.
"With passage of this bill, the
Senate sends a clear message to
the president that we must take the
war in Iraq in a new direction.
Setting a goal for getting most of
our troops out of Iraq is not - not,
not - cutting and running," said
Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va.,
shortly before the vote. Passage
cleared the way for negotiations on
a compromise with the House.
Senate Republican leader Mitch
McConnell of Kentucky rebutted
quickly. "Nothing good can come
from this bill," he said. "It's loaded
with pork that has no relation to our
efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan, and
it includes a deadline for evacuation
that amounts to sending a 'Save the
Date' card to al-Qaida."
Several blocks away, the com-
mander in chief stood with
Republican House members and
told reporters they were united.
"We expect there to be no strings
on our commanders and that we
expect the Congress to be wise
aboit how they spend the people's

In private, Bush was at least as
emphatic, according to participants
at a closed-door session in the
White House East Room with the
GOP rank and file. "He said he will

too much spending," said one offi-

SDetectives ponder actions of serial killer


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Investigators with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Fort
Myers Police Department sift through dirt earlier this week that was found
with the remains of eight bodies found in Fort Myers.


Authorities trying to
determine if skeletons
were left in Fort Myers.
By BRIAN SKOLOFF
Associated Press
FORT MYERS - The discovery of
eight human skeletons in a remote,
wooded area just east of downtown has
authorities quietly wondering whether a
serial killer might be at work.
Using wire screens and keen eyes,
forensics experts are sifting through
dirt and debris for clues. The investi-
gation has taken on the look of a "CSI"-
like television crime mystery - only it
won't be solved in an hour.


A forensic anthropologist is studying
the bones and reconstructing them like
pieces of a puzzle. A botanist and an
entomologist will examine plant growth
and insects at the site to determine how
long the remains have been there. And
detectives wait for answers.
Who are they? Were they mur-
dered? And if so, is there a mass killer
on the loose?
Theories abound from a shady crema-
torium dumping bodies to an old
cemetery, but the most obvious,
and frightening, is at the forefront of
investigators' minds.
"If it was a body dump by a funeral
home, they probably would have
dumped them all in one place, and
these are not on top of each other.


They're spread around," said Karen
Cooper, supervisor of the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement's
Fort Myers crime lab. "I think we're
more likely dealing with a serial killer
or something of that nature ... That's
what's on the top of people's minds."
The skeletons were found down a
dirt road in an area covered in scrub
and brush in an industrial section
just a few miles from downtown and
several miles from Interstate 75.
The first was found last Friday by a
surveyor checking the land for poten-
tial development. Authorities were
called, and soon seven other skeletons
were discovered in a 200-yard radius.
No clothing or personal items were
found; no flesh remained, just bones.

Sales tax

Voters nearly split
even on sales-property
tax swap in recent poll.
By BILL KACZOR
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - An' over-
whelming majority of Florida vot-.
ers say sales tax is fairer than
property tax,.yet they are reluc-
tant to lower tax bills on their
homes in exchange for an
increase in sales tax, according to
a poll released Thursday.
That result, though, wasn't sur-
prising to Peter Brown, assistant
director of the Quinnipiac
University Polling Institute, which
questioned 1,061 Florida voters
March 21-27.
'"They are skeptical when gov-
ernment talks about raising their
taxes in any way even as part of a
deal," Brown said.
The deal that pollsters from the
Hamden, Conn., school asked vot-
ers about is in a proposed state

Bono becomes a knight


DUBLIN, Ireland - Irish rock star
and global humanitarian Bono became
a knight of the British empire Thursday
- and joked that his youngest son
thought he was about to become a Jedi
instead.
Bono, 46, was named a Knight
Commander of the Most Excellent
Order of the British Empire in an
informal, laugh-filled ceremony in the
Dublin home of British Ambassador
David Reddaway.

afterward.
Because he is an Irish citizen, Bono
won't have the title of "sir" before his
name. That honor is reserved for
citizens of the United Kingdom or
British Commonwealth countries.
Ireland left the Commonwealth when
it became a republic in 1949.
Reddaway paid tribute to Bono's
work as a campaigner against poverty
and disease in Africa - but first asked
whether he was disappointed that
becoming a knight no longer involves
a sword or kneeling.

'Wait a second. There's a guy
in the audience - striped

somebody check him out?"'
said Cali Haas, 20, of

Mother not fit
to stand trial
MIAMI - A woman was
found incompetent to stand
trial on charges she killed
her 3-year-old son by slashing
his throat.
Danqiong Yang, 33, had
been charged with
first-degree murder, but
prosecutors and public
defenders agreed Tuesday
that she was mentally
incompetent.
Circuit Judge Jorge Perez
ordered her taken for
treatment and evaluation. If
she is later found competent,
she can be brought to trial.
Police found her son,
Alexander Ma, stabbed in
their apartment in December.
Police said Yang called 911
and told the operator she had
stabbed the baby, and there
was blood on her.

Deputy arrested
on drug charges
DEERFIELD BEACH - A
Broward County sheriff's
deputy took cocaine and
prescription painkillers from
what he thought was an
abandoned car and then used
the cocaine while on duty,
authorities said.
An investigation into
Robert Delaney Jr., 41, began
after a confidential informant
told the sheriff's office in
February that Delaney had
been buying and using
cocaine, according to an
arrest report.
Detectives staged an
abandoned vehicle as a sting.
They put 4 grams of cocaine
and six oxycodone pills in a
car and set up a surveillance
unit across the street. Then
Delaney was dispatched to
investigate the car.
According to the report,
Delaney took the drugs and
left without reporting them.
Detectives later confronted
Delaney, and he admitted
using some of the cocaine
after leaving the abandoned
car.


Detectives found no
'evidence that Delaney's
illegal activities went beyond'
personal drug use.
"The tip only focused on
the fact he was using and
purchasing drugs," sheriff's
spokesman Elliot .Cohen said.


ST. PETERSBURG - A
tanker truck crashed and
exploded, killing the driver
and closing part of a highway
indefinitely, authorities said.
The tanker truck
overturned on a single-lane
overpass connecting 1-275, to
1-375 in St. Petersburg at
approximately 10:45 p.m.
Wednesday night, police
spokesman Pete
Hoambrecker said.
'"The truck is pretty much
gone, and a lot of fuel spilled
out onto a city maintenance
lot below," Hoambrecker
said. 'The fire destroyed
about a half dozen pieces of
equipment."
The blaze took about three
or four hours to put out. Fuel
also spilled down into the
storm sewers, causing fires to
erupt down there,
Hoambrecker said.
Authorities don't know
what caused the crash yet,
and they haven't identified
the truck driver.

Former deputy
faces perjury charge
ORLANDO -- A former
Orange County deputy lied to
conceal the identity of an
informant, causing a
drug-trafficking case to be
dismissed, authorities said.
Jeffrey Lane, 39, had
arrested Samuel Tanner, 32,
of Sanford, in a
drug-trafficking sting in
February 2004 with help
from informant Horace L.
Clark, 32, of Orlando.
But Lane denied knowing
Clark during a deposition in
Tanner's case, which caused
the case to be dismissed,


according to a report
released Wednesday.
Lane admitted to an
investigator with the sheriff's
professional-standards
division that he did not tell the
truth during the deposition,
according to the report.


CLEARWATER - A Circuit
Court judge said Wednesday a
woman's sex change operation
does not free her ex-husband
from his alimony obligation.
Attorneys for Lawrence
Roach, 48, had argued his
55-year-old ex-wife's decision
to switch genders and change
her name from Julia to Julio
Roberto Silverwolf voided
their 2004 divorce agreement
because a man cannot legally
pay alimony to a man.
But Circuit Judge Jack R. St.
Arnold ruled the language of
the agreement was clear and
that in the eyes of the law
nothing changed significantly
enough to free Roach from the
$1,250 a month alimony
obligation. The judge said
since Florida courts have
ruled sex-change surgery
cannot legally change a
person's birth gender, Roach
technically is not paying
alimony to a man.

Local church
begins crusade
The Olivet Missionary Baptist
Church will host a Men's Crusade
focusing on building unity by
strengthening men and boys in
the community this weekend.
The program is scheduled to
take place Friday and Saturday
at Olivet Missionary Baptist
Church, 541 NE Davis Ave.
The title of the program is
"Restoring the Man in Manhood".
The program will begin tonight at
7 p.m. and will end Saturday with
a prayer breakfast at 8:30 a.m.
'The overall aim is to try to
tackle issues that men
sometimes don't communicate,
be it relationship issues, medical
issues, communication issues
and more importantly
understanding their place in the
family structure, but also being
more visible in the community,"
said Ronald Walters, Olivet
Missionary Baptist Church
S pastor.
Pastor Earnest Berrian, of
Jacksonville's Light Of The World
Christian Church, will be the
facilitator for the Friday evening
session beginning at 7 p.m. and
the Saturday morning facilitator at
the 8:30 a.m. prayer breakfast.
The event is free, open to all
community men groups, men's
choirs, boys and community
organizations.

Lawmakers push to
replace state song
TALLAHASSEE - Florida
may be home to the highest
percentage of retirees of any
state, but it's preparing to dump
Stephen Foster's fabled "Old
Folks at Home" as the official
state song.
The tune, also known as
"Swanee River," has long been
considered racially insensitive
and Florida lawmakers have
twice before considered
changing it. Now some of the
state's music teachers are
lining up with legislators to
replace the song written 156
years ago with another that
better represents 21st century
Florida.
The original song lyrics fondly
recall life on "de old plantation"
and the friendly sounds of "de
banjo strumming." When
performed at official state
functions, the song is sung in
standard English and one line-
"Oh, darkeys, how my heart
grows weary" - has been
changed to"Oh, brothers, how
my heart grows weary" since
1978.
Gov. Charlie Crist scrapped
the tune at his Jan. 2 inaugural,
concerned about the racial
overtones of the piece that was
formally adopted as the state
song in 1935.
Instead, Crist chose "Florida's
Song," a tune written by a.
62-year-old blind Tallahassee
entertainer, Charles Atkins.

Lunsford: May run
for state HOuse
HOMOSASSA - After his
9-year-old daughter's slaying-two
years ago, Mark Lunsford
became a highly visible national
advocate for tougher child
protection laws. Now he says he
may run for state office.
Lunsford said he is
considering running for the state
House of Representatives if his
district seat opens up soon.
An opening will depend on
whether Gov. Charlie Crist picks
state Sen. Nancy Argenziano for
one of two seats on the Public
Service Commission. If that
happens and Argenziano resigns
from the Senate, state Rep.
Charlie Dean, R-Invemess, said
he will run for the vacant Senate
seat, which would open up
Dean's House seat if he wins.

Chocolate Jesus
on display in NYC
NEW YORK - The Easter
season unveiling of an
anatomically correct chocolate
sculpture of Jesus Christ, dubbed
"My Sweet Lord" by its creator,
has infuriated Catholics preparing
to observe some of their holiest
days of the year.
The 6-foot sculpture by
Cosimo Cavallaro was to debut
Monday evening, four days
before Christians mark the
crucifixion of Jesus Christ on


Good Friday. The final day of the
exhibit at the Lab Gallery inside
Manhattan's Roger Smith Hotel
was planned for Easter Sunday.
'This is one of the worst
assaults on Christian sensibilities
ever," said Bill Donohue, head of
the Catholic League, a watchdog
group. "It's not just the ugliness
of the portrayal, but the timing -
to choose Holy Week is
astounding."

Ex-presidents hope industry

can help developing nations


By JIM ELLIS
Associated Press
ORLANDO - The wireless
industry will play a role in
spreading ,democracy and
providing education, health
care and economic prosperity
to developing countries in the
years ahead, former
Presidents Bush and Clinton
said Thursday.
Information technology
enables people around the
world to understand cultures
different than. their own,
Clinton told a crowd of more
than 3,000 attendees at the
2007 CTIA Wireless conven-
tion in Orlando.
"Our common humanity is
more important than our
interests and differences,"
said.Clinton, who began work-
ing with Bush on disaster
relief after a tsunami killed
tens of thousands in 'South
Asia in 2004.
The two former political
rivals continued relief efforts
for Hurricane Katrina victims


the following year and now
have what they say is a part-
nership that transcends indi-
vidual politics. Indeed, refer-
ences to the current presi-
dent, George W. Bush, or. the
aspiring one, Sen. Hillary
Rodham Clinton, were few.
"We're getting something
out there that's bigger than
our own politics," said Bush,
who took the stage first. "I
really believe there can be no
definition of a successful life
that does not include serving
others and that's what
(Cinton) and I are trying to
do."
Bush credited television for
helping to end the Cold War
and said wireless communica-
tion would pick up where TV
left off in spreading ideas of
freedom and democracy to
countries such as China.
"Thanks to technology, the
genie is already out of the bot-
tle," he said. "There are more
human rights (in China).
There is more experimenta-


tion with market economy
and capitalism (in China) than
anybody ever -dreamed
possible."
Clinton spent his time urg-
ing the wireless industry to
do more in developing
countries.
. The United States has pro-
gressed in education, health
care and economic develop-
ment due in part to technolog-
ical advances and other coun-
tries could benefit also,
Clinton said.
Just 7 percent of employ-
ment in the United States was
related to information tech-
nology from 1996 to 2000,
however, the industry
accounted for 28 percent of
the nation's economic growth
during that same period, said
Clinton.
A World Bank study
showed that an increase in
cell phone penetration in the
world's poorest countries
increases their gross domes-
tic product, Clinton said.

Council calls for 'early resolution' to

faceoff over Iran's capture of Britons


By EDITH M. LEDERER
Associated Press
UNITED NATIONS - The
U.N. Security Council
expressed "grave concern"
Thursday over Iran's seizure of
15 British sailors and marines
and called for an early resolu-
tion of the escalating dispute,
but Iran's chief international
negotiator suggested the cap-
tives might be put on trial.
The council's statement was-
n't as tough as Britain had
hoped, though, and the divide
seemed to deepen.
As the standoff drove world
oil prices to new six-month
highs, Turkey, NATO's only
Muslim member, reportedly
sought to calm tensions by urg-
ing Iran to let a Turkish diplo-
mat meet with the detainees
and to free the lone woman
among the Britons.
Tensions had seemed to be
cooling a day earlier, but after
Iran offended leaders by airing
a video of the prisoners and
Britain touched a nerve in
Tehran by seeking U.N. help,

positions hardened even more
Thursday.
Iran retreated from a pledge
by Iranian Foreign Minister
Mottaki that the female sailor,
Faye Turney, would be
released soon. Mottaki then
repeated that the matter could
be resolved if Britain admitted
its sailors mistakenly entered
Iranian territorial waters last


Friday.
Britain's Foreign Office
insisted again that the sailors
and marines were seized in an
Iraqi-controlled area while
searching merchant ships
under a U.N. mandate and said
no admission of error would be
made.
With Britain taking its case
to the United Nations, Ali
Larijani, the top Iranian nego-
tiator in all his country's for-
eign dealings, went on Iranian
state radio to issue a warning.
He said that if Britain contin-
ued its current approach, "this
case may face a legal path" - a
clear reference to Iran prose-
cuting the sailors and marines
in court "British leaders have
miscalculated this issue," he
said.
Gen. Ali Reza Afshar, Iran's
military chief, blamed the
backtracking on releasing the
British woman on "wrong
behavior" by her government.
"The release of a female British
soldier has been suspended,"
the semiofficial Iranian news
agency Mehr said.

Perbtani


deserving


of award

Congratulations to Ali
Perbtani for being named
the Columbia County
Sheriff's Office Law
Enforcement Officer of the
Year. Perbtani was selected for the
honor by a vote of his colleagues in the
department for his outstanding work
and dedication to the county's law
enforcement provider.
Perbtani has been with the CCSO for
five years and serves as a road deputy
for the agency - arguably one of the
toughest jobs in public safety.
Other top honors from the
department went to Ken Lee, civilian
employee of the year; Dep. John Snipes
earned the detention deputy of the year
award; and Sarah Wheeler was named
the communications officer of the year
for her work at the dispatch center.
All of these public servants do their
job without hesitation and they do it
because they are dedicated to helping
others.
There are many men and women
who help the sheriff's office function
efficiently. It's good to see a few of
these individuals singled out for special
commendations from the department.

HIGHLIGHTS

An archive that surely

n a former SS barracks
in the small central
German town of Bad -
Arolsen stands one of
World War II's largest
archives - 50 million files on
16 miles of shelves recording
the fate of 17 million people.
And it is closed to
historians, researchers, family
members and other Holocaust
archives and has been since
the Allies consolidated
records there they had swept
up from Nazi Germany's
concentration camps and
slave-labor factories.
Last May, after Germany
dropped lingering objections,
the 11 nations that oversee the
archives agreed to open the
archive, after having agreed in
principle eight years earlier
that it should be opened. It is
still closed.
The United States, Britain,
Israel, Poland and the
Netherlands have all approved
amending the treaty to allow
open access. Germany and
Luxembourg have said
they will do sobefore the 11
nations meet again in May.
Still to be heard from are
France, Italy, Belgium
and Greece.
The usual reason offered
for keeping the archives
sealed was to protect privacy,

LETTER


Kudos to exposure
of sheriff's spending

To the Editor:
I would like to highly
commend you for examining
the excessive spending of the
Columbia County Sheriff.
For over two years now we
have watched Sheriff Bill
Gootee spend taxpayers money
at an unprecedented rate.
Those of us who have lived in
Columbia County for any
length of time can remember
how former Sheriff Frank
Owens operated the
department on a shoestring
budget. I cannot understand
where Sheriff Gootee is getting
the money to buy new
equipment for the Sheriff's
Office but I can assure you it is
being spent very quickly and
on unnecessary items.
First of all, since we were
recently exposed to the
Sheriff's spending on vehicles,
maybe we should count the
three new vehicles he has
purchased and outfitted for
himself. It is important to note
that these vehicle were not the
standard $25,000 patrol vehicle
which he mentioned in an
earlier letter to this newspaper,
the vehicles were much more
expensive Ford Expeditions.
Former Sheriff's would have
been lucky to have had the

years since the war, that's a
diminishing consideration,
and open archives have
well-established standards to
protect privacy.
Right now, the only access
to the archive is through the
International Tracing Agency,
a Red Cross agency that
processes requests from
survivors and family members
seeking information on the
dead and missing. But the
agency is swamped with a
four-year, 400,000-request


backlog and, meanwhile, the
actuarial clock is ticking.
The suspicion is that
approval is being slow-walked
because it is embarrassing
and painful to the nations
involved, and in a broader
sense embarrassing to the
human race.
The Nazis kept meticulous
records on the people they
enslaved, down to such trivia
as head-lice counts, and on the
people they murdered. One
file records how a camp
commandant celebrated
Hitler's birthday by executing
a Russian prisoner every two"
minutes. Their cause of death
was listed as "shrapnel from
bombs."
A House Foreign Affairs
subcommittee held a hearing
this past week to try to speed
the process of opening the
archive, and the State
Department testified that if it
isn't done this year, the United
States will seek other means.
Why wait that long? If, after
the May meeting of the 11
nations, the archive is still not
open, then the nations that
have voted aye should break
the treaty and thus break the
seal on the archive.

TO T.HE EDITOR


budget to afford one of these
vehicles, much less three.
In the recent months the
Sheriff has spent county funds
on expensive trips for
personnel and even on new
badges. Somehow, the old
badges were serving their
purpose quite well and did not
appear to need replacing. I'm
sure I could remember more
frivolous spending on the part
of Sheriff Gootee but I just do
not have that much time.
I would like to take another
brief moment to mention the
limited amount of training that
the Sheriff provides for his
officers, reportedly because
the funding is just not there.
Officers in the Columbia
County Sheriff's Office
perform a very limited
firearms qualification only
once a year. In addition, many
advanced training classes
are not permitted for the
rank-and-file officers who are
told that there is no money for
them to attend. Aside from the
money problems experienced
in training, the officers are
normally not permitted to
attend because there are not
enough Deputies to cover their
absence. Maybe personnel
would be an excellent area in
which to spend the county's
funds.
I commend your questioning
in the recent editorial on the


spending of $400,000 from the
future jail funds. The Sheriff
speaks as though this is free
money for the Sheriff's Office
to spend when the truth of the
matter is that this money will
need to be replaced. If and
when the county begins
construction of the new jail will
the Sheriff replace the $400,000
into the jail funds from his own,
budget? Shouldn't we really
be asking why the regular
operating budget for the
Sheriff's Office is never
enough. I repeatedly see the
Columbia County Commission
approving additional funds for
the Sheriff's pet projects.
I hope that each and every
citizen of Columbia County can
understand how critical it is that
their officers have the proper
equipment to be able to do their
jobs safely. However, the
citizens of the county and
especially their elected
representatives should examine
the waste and frivolous
spending by the Columbia
County Sheriff. Maybe it is time
for an independent audit of the
Sheriffs Office so that the
public may know the truth.
Sheriff Gootee certainly wasted
no time in being critical of
former Sheriff Frank Owens'
spending when he first took
office. Fair is fair.

Semper Fi,


only minus


the tattoos

WASHINGTON
t is now routine to ask candidates about
personal habits such as boxers or briefs,
extramarital affairs and illegal drug use.
So, sometime during the never-ending
presidential campaign we find ourselves
in, someone is certain to ask the politician on
the dais if he/she has any tattoos, what he/she
thinks of tattoos and if the government has a
right to tell someone he/she can't have tattoos.
As of April 1 (and this is no joke), the
Marines (yes, the few and the proud who
painfully and permanently have tattoos inked on
their bodies) have a new policy, as stated in
MARADMIN 198/07.
Marines no longer may get tattoos on the
head or neck. They no longer may have a "very
large" tattoo or a "collection of smaller" tattoos
that cover an entire arm or leg. There are to be
no new tattoos that are visible if a marine is
wearing shorts
and a T-shirt.
Tattoos on the
hands have p
long been
banned but
others on the
body, especially
slavish, maudlin Ann McFeatters
ones pledging amcfeatters@hotmail.com
fealty forever to
the principle of Semper Fi, have been a
Marine's badge of honor.
Obviously, the new decree led to long lines
circling tattoo parlors near Marine bases before
the order took effect Although Marines sporting
tattoos before April 1 can keep them, the official
Marine Corps Web site shows a Marine with the
tattoo "never again" on his left ring finger, noting
he is going through a "series of painful and
expensive procedures" of tattoo removal.
The new strictures on bodily inking have
come about because the Marine commandant,
Gen. James Conway, wants to put his brand, so'
to speak, on the Corps by clarifying what has
been a confusing, much debated issue. ; . a
His policy warns: 'Tattoos or brands that "
are prejudicial to good order, discipline and
morale, or are of a nature to bring discredit
upon the Marine Corps" are prohibited,
including those that are "sexist, racist, vulgar,
anti-America, anti-social, gang related, or
extremist group or organization related." Fair
enough. Then Conway somewhat smugly
decided to ban any tattoos that are visible if a
Marine is in exercise clothes.
"I understand many tattoos are in good taste,
and many represent pride for our Corps or
remembrance of fallen comrades. However, I
believe tattoos of an excessive nature do not
represent our traditional values," he insisted.
Some Marines are grumbling they resent
being told what they can and can't do with their
own bodies, although one might argue they
should have thought of that before they signed
up with an outfit that can order them to kill or
be killed. Also, employers legally can impose
dress codes on employees.
But in this case disobeying the order by adding
a new tattoo (believe it or not, the Marines may
take photographs to prove whether a tattoo is new
or not) can be punishable by dishonorable
discharge or up to two years in prison.
In case you are wondering (and for candidates
who will be asked this on the campaign trail),

unless they are "extremist, indecent, sexist or
racist" and permitl.no head or face tattoos unless
they are "permanent" but not trendy make-up.




gang affiliation.
And Air Force Instruction 36-2903, which
apparently took a "tiger team of first sergeants,
commanders, social action people and
representatives from medical and legal offices"
19 months to formulate, requires tattoos to be
covered if they are bigger than one-fourth the
size of the exposed body part. (The Air Force
Academy advises applicants that pictures of
their tattoos and body art are required and that
reviewers are of "an older generation" who may
not think body art is cool.)
The new Marine rule is the equivalent of
telling a politician, "no labored jokes, no posing
with babies and no boasting of what you have
done/will do" for constituents.
Thus, here's an opportunity for the next
president to get the youth vote. Stand up,
ridicule the new order, roll back a sleeve and
proudly display a U.S. flag/soaring eagle, bigger
than a hand or.larger than one-fourth the
exposed arm. (A venal pol could use one of those


temporary tattoos that washes off although
explaining its absence later could be tricky.)
Next week: Politicians and body piercing.

Audit finds
accounting errors
DALLAS - Dell Inc., one of
the world's largest PC makers,
said Thursday that an internal
audit committee has found a
number of accounting errors
and evidence of misconduct in
its monthslong review of
previous earnings statements.
Dell also said it would miss
an April 18 deadline to file its
annual 10K financial report to
the Securities and Exchange
Commission until the internal
review is completed.
Dell shares fell in electronic
trading after the market
closed, when the news was
released.
In a short news release, the
Round Rock, Texas, company
said the internal audit had
"identified a number of
accounting errors, evidence of
misconduct, and deficiencies
in the financial control
environment."

Slump leads to
slow economy
WASHINGTON -After
ending 2006 lethargically, the
economy is expected to
remain sluggish most of this
year as businesses and
consumers cope with fallout
from the painful housing
slump.
The broadest barometer of
the country's economic health,
gross domestic product, grew
at a 2.5 percent annual rate in
the final three months of last
year, the Commerce
Department reported
Thursday.
It was a small improvement
from the 2.2 percent pace
previously estimated for the
fourth quarter and a 2 percent
growth rate logged in the third
quarter. However, the new
reading still marked a
lackluster showing that
reinforced economists'
predictions for similarly listless
activity in the coming quarters.

plans purchase
PITTSBURGH - United
States Steel Corp. plans to
buy Lone Star Technologies
Inc., a maker of welded pipe,
used in oil fields, in a
$2.1 billion cash deal-that will .

largest producer of tubular
steel.
The Pittsburgh-based
company said Thursday the
transaction will combine its
largely seamless tubular
business with Lone Star's
welded tubular operation,
broadening its line of energy
sector products.
U.S. Steel will be able to'
produce about 2.8 million tons
of tubular steel in North
America annually after the
transaction is completed, the
company said. The deal is
expected to close in the
second or third quarter of
2007.

Information
stolen from TJX
BOSTON - Information
from at least 45.7 million credit
and debit cards was stolen by
hackers who accessed TJX's
customer information in a
security breach that the
discount retailer disclosed
more than two months ago.
TJX Cos., the owner of
about 2,500 stores, said in a
regulatory filing late
Wednesday that about
three-quarters of those cards
had either expired at the time
of the theft, or data from their
magnetic strips had been
masked - stored as asterisks
rather than numbers.
But TJX acknowledged it
still knows little about the full
scope of the breach, in part
because the hacker or hackers
accessed TJX's encryption
software and could have
known how to unscramble the
information.

Oil prices reach
new six-month high
NEW YORK - Crude oil
prices surged above $66 a
barrel Thursday, driven to a
new six-month high by


concerns that strained relations
between Iran and the West
could put oil exports in jeopardy '
as U.S. gasoline supplies wane
and demand swells.
Pump prices kept rising as
well: The average U.S. retail
price of unleaded regular
gasoline was $2.62 a gallon
Thursday, 12 cents higher than
a year ago, according to AAA.

Chrysler, Sirius to offer


satellite TV in some vehicles


By TOM KRISHER
AP Business Writer
DETROIT - Soon your
kids will be able to watch
Nickelodeon while you drive.
DaimlerChrysler AG's
Chrysler Group on Thursday
announced limited satellite
television service for its 2008
Dodge and Chrysler minivans
and several other models,
continuing its plan to turn the
vans into family rooms on
wheels.
The company, which
invented the minivan, is team-
ing with Sirius Satellite Radio
Inc. to bring three channels
- Nickelodeon, Disney
Channel and Cartoon
Network - to the next gener-
ation of minivans, as well as
the 2008 Chrysler 300, Dodge
Charger, Dodge Magnum,
Jeep Commander and Jeep


Grand Cherokee.
Chrysler said it has the
channels exclusively through
the 2008 model year, after
which Sirius can offer it to
other partners,
The feature comes with a
price tag, though. It costs
$470 and will be packaged
with Chrysler's rear seat
entertainment system and
Sirius Satellite Radio. The
cost includes the first year of
service, after which the TV
channels will cost $7 per
month, plus the satellite radio
fee of $12.95 per month.
It's possible that in the
future, more channels and
even full satellite service
could become available, but
for now, it's limited by band-
width allocated to satellite
radio, said Frank Klegon,
executive vice president of


product development for
Chrysler.
Sirius, he said, has figured
out how to send a limited TV
signal within the airwaves
allocated to satellite radio.
"I think there's certainly
some potential in the future
for expansion of additional
channels," he said.
Klegon also said satellite
TV is the latest step in a con-
tinuation of information tech-
nology moving from home to
vehicle.
The system, being unveiled
Thursday in New York, oper-.
ates with an in-vehicle satel-
lite video receiver and two
small roof-mounted antennae.
The satellite TV also will show
up -on a front-seat television
screen, although for safety
reasons, will air only while the
vehicle is in park.


Qwest, AT&T, Verizon win


government telecom contract


By DIBYA SARKAR
AP Business Writer
WASHINGTON - Dealing,
a significant blow to Sprint
Nextel,- the government on
Thursday awarded the largest-
ever federal' telecommunica-
tions contract - a 10-year deal
worth up to $48 billion - to its
rivals AT&T, Qwest
Communications and Verizon.
The three contract winners
will split $525 million, but
beyond that they will have to
compete with each other for
the business of dozens of fed-
eral agencies needing to
enhance the quality and securi-
ty of voice, video and data tech-
nologies, the General Services
Administration announced.
Among the products federal
agencies will choose from are
Internet-based voice and video
systems, wireless and satellite
communications services
and updated network
infrastructure.
Several major departments,
including Homeland Security


and Treasury, have already
signed onto the contract,
though no specific deals are
anticipated before summer.
While AT&T Inc., Qwest
Communications International
Inc. and . Verizon
Communications Inc. gained
an important and deep-pocket-
ed client, the announcement
was a serious loss to Sprint
Nextel Corp., analysts said, not
least because the Reston, Va.-
based company has been pro-
viding telecom services to the
federal government for nearly
20 years.
Earlier this year, Sprint
announced thousands of job
cuts amid service troubles, a
dwindling customer base and
difficulty assimilating Nextel
Communications, which it
acquired in December 2004.
Sprint shares are down rough-
ly 20 percent from a year ago
and the company is forecasting
near-flat operating revenue and
earnings this year.
"It's terrible for Sprint," said
technology consultant Warren


Suss of Jenkintown, Pa. "The
federal government was
Springs first major customer
since the company started."
While current GSA officials
would not say why Sprint lost
out, Bob Woods, a former offi-
cial at the agency who now
works as a consultant, sur-
mised that Sprint .could not
meet the low prices of its com-
petitors. Woods estimated that
Sprint could lose roughly
$200 million to $250 million
annually in existing
government business.
Executives from Sprint plan
to meet with GSA officials next
week to discuss why their con-
tract proposal fell short, and
the company will decide after-
ward whether to file a protest,
spokeswoman Sukhi Sahni
said in an e-mail.
For the winners, Thursday's
announcement was perhaps
most significant for Qwest, the
smallest among them. Suss
said Qwest can now leverage
its government business to
gain more corporate clients.


New Apple iTunes feature gives

customers credits for full albums


By MAY WONG
AP Technology Writer
SAN JOSE, Calif. - Apple
Inc., the company that popular-
ized selling songs online for 99
cents apiece, now hopes to
buoy interest in albums, giving
customers credit for purchases
of full albums from which they
have bought individual tracks.
Apple introduced the
"Complete My Album" feature
Thursday on its iTunes Store.
It now gives a full credit of 99
cents for every track the user
previously purchased and
applies it toward the purchase
of the complete album.
For instance, most albums
on iTunes cost $9.99 so a cus-
tomer who already bought
three tracks can download the
rest of the album for $7.02.
Previously, users who
bought singles and later opted
to buy the album had to pay the
full price of the album and
ended up with duplicates of
those songs.
The album price reduction is
good for only 180 days after the
initial purchase of individual
tracks.
Eddy Cue, Apple's vice pres-
ident of iTunes, said the new


feature should help eliminate
the resistance that customers,
including himself, may have
felt in buying an album after
they had already bought a sin-
gle from it.
"Once we bought a song, we
wondered why we had to buy it
again if we wanted the album,"
Cue said. "We hope it helps us
sell more songs ultimately, and
from the customer point of the
view, we think ift's the right
thing to do."
About 45 percent of the near-
ly 2.5 billion songs sold on
iTunes were purchased as
albums, Cue said.
For a limited period of 90
days, Apple said it will make
the "Complete My Album"
offer retroactive to users who

Improve
Health 9-


purchased tracks dating back
to the launch of the iTunes
Store four years ago.
Apple dominates the online
music market and is a leading
music retailer worldwide
behind only Wal-Mart Stores
Inc., Best Buy Co. and Target
Corp.
Some record label execu-
tives have. complained about
Apple's one-size-fits-all model
of 99 cents a track; they would
prefer flexible pricing, such as
charging more for new releas-
es. Some also contend today's
easy access to single song
downloads - versus the more
lucrative method of
selling albums - hasn't
helped the industry's declining
sales.

'GRAW' sequel is refined but short


Troy Roberts
Phone: (386) 754-0427
troberts@Jakecityreporter.com

Breathing

life into

classics
What is old
is new
again.
It
amazes me
sometimes to see how far
entertainment has evolved
when music, television
shows and movies of 20
years ago make a
comeback today.
With music, there is no
better example of this than
the Rolling Stones and
Aerosmith, two bands that
had nearly fallen off the
face of the earth for a
number of years only to
make huge comebacks in
the late '90s. Of course,
both bands are much older
than just 20 years, which is
even more of a testament
to their longevity based on
album and concert ticket
sales. Several generations
have heard their music,
and considering the
members of those bands
have the lifespans of sea
turtles, future generations
will be able to as well.
With the recent trend in
movies being to recreate
something nostalgic, you
don't have to look any
further than last weekend's
new Teenage Mutant Ninja
Turtles movie, "TMNT,"
and this summer's
'Transformers."
Now, I'll admit, I haven't
seen "TMNT" yet. I plan to.
I'm going to see
'Transformers" on its first
day.
But, you have to think, I
grew up with these shows.
I invested a lot of tinie into
their, albeit linear,
storylines and became
attached to the characters.
And while I am sure
there will be many people
like me in theaters for the
S'Transformers" movie, a
lot of children who don't
remember these giant
robots the way I do will be
there as well. Well, maybe
some of the offshoots
during the '90s, but not the
Transformers I remember.
Nostalgia aside, there
are some things that just
have a mass appeal that,
won't die. Look at the
"Super Mario Bros." video
games. Look at the "Star
Wars" movies.
"Star Trek" has been on
the air in some form for
more than 40 years now.
Even shows like '"The
Flintstones" and '"The
Jetsons" later appeared as
movies. My wife, who
teaches elementary
school, tells me all the
time about how her
students are talking about
an episode of "Full House"
they watched the night
before, a show that was on
well before they were
even born.
Each show or movie has
a unique appeal to it.
It's weird to think that
shows I watched as a child
are still being watched by
today's children, in one
form or another. And it
makes me wonder if, 20
years from now, will there
be a resurgence of "G.I.
Joe"?
And 40 years from now,
will "He-Man" still be
around?
It'll be interesting to see
and only time will tell.

By MATT SLAGLE
AP Technology Writer
We've taken a sniper's aim at 'Tom
Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced
Warfighter 2," the newest installment
in squad-based warfare from publish-
er tbiSoft and a sequel to one of last
year's best games.
It's a definite step up from the origi-
nal - and that's saying a lot. The
game has a refined interface, even bet-
ter graphics and an engaging multi-
player experience that balances out
the extremely short single-player
mode.
Called "GRAW2" for short, this new
title (Rated E, $59.99 for Xbox 360,
$49.99 for Windo*s PCs) picks up in
the year 2014 with Capt. Scott
Mitchell.
He leads the U.S. military's elite
Ghost Recon unit and arrives at Fort
Bliss, Texas, near El Paso, just in time
to deal with a civil war in Mexico that'
threatens to boil over into the United
States.
The resulting action makes for
some of the best tactical squad-based
gameplay around.
The single-player game is incredi-
bly short - I wrapped it up in an after-
noon - but at least it provides a quick
rundown of the many improvements
over the original.
The real game exists in the deep,
varied multiplayer modes, which
include online matches with others
on Xbox Live as well in-person games
with up to four people.
You'll have to make some basic
decisions before each game - who

do you want to accompany you on
the battlefield? In single-player
mode, you will be the one giving
orders with a few well-considered
button presses.
The basic mix of gunner, rifleman
and medic unit works' well for most
fights, but there will be times when
you'll want to swap out those spots
for more specialized combatants like
the grenadier, who can expertly


destroy armored vehicles.
Different units make for different
tactics, too. It takes longer, but
sneaking from one cover spot to
another, shooting only when neces-
sary, is often the best approach.
There will be times when explosive
Rambo-style romps are required, so
be ready to switch from sneak mode
to combat mode when necessary.
The game packs sharp, detailed


graphics with explosions that fill the
screen and outdoor environments
across Central America that come
alive with realistically rendered build-
ings, trees and vehicles.
Fans of the original game will love
this sequel. It may not be long but
what you get is extremely polished
and fun to play. And the multiplayer
modes are about as good as online
action gaming gets on the Xbox 360.

2 3-D effects but a 2-D story

pose for a portrait in Studio City,.Calif. recently.

Good Charlotte looks for

revival with new album


By MELINDA NEWMAN
For The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES - Many
acts avoid reading reviews of
their albums for fear one, sour
critic will reduce their noble
efforts to rubble. Good
Charlotte's Benji Madden is
not one of those artists.
"I read all the reviews," he
says. "I remember the first
review I ever read about our
band was They'll be gone
tomorrow; they'll be gone
quicker than they came."'
Seven years and more than 9
million albums later, pop
punkers Good Charlotte are
not only still standing, but
proudly proclaiming a return
three years after the release ;of
2004's '"The Chronicles of Life
& Death."
"Ben said something a cou-
ple of weeks ago that I thought
was really interesting," says
vocalist Joel of Benji, his twin
brother and the group's gui-
tarist. "It was, 'I don't know if
we're the most rock 'n' roll
band in pop or the most pop
band in rock 'n' roll."'
Indeed, Good Charlotte
straddles the line. The Madden
brothers have all the requisite
rocker markings: they sport
multiple tattoos and piercings,
they dress in all black, they
chain smoke Camels; but their
music and unfailing politeness
give away their pop leanings.
"You couldn't really put us in a
category right now, we're kind
of out there on our own," says
Joel.
"Good Morning Revival" cel-
ebrates that refusal to be
pigeonholed. The first single,
'The River," is straight-ahead
rock, while "Dance Floor
Anthem" is an instantly infec-
tious toe-tapper and "Keep


Your Hands Off My Girl"
would sound at home on the
latest album from the Killers or
the Gorillaz. With "Revival,"
the twins felt a small reinven-
tion was in order "to keep our-
selves interested," says Benji.
"We've been in this band since
we were 16."
Additionally, Good
Charlotte; which also includes
bassist Paul Thomas, guitarist
Billy Martin, and drummer
Dean Butterworth, needed to
right itself after "Chronicles"
sold only 1.1 'million copies in
the United States, well below
the 3.4 million units moved by
2002's 'The, Young and the
Hopeless." But the Maddens
say. they never felt
"Chronicles" was anything
other than a success since it
expanded the band's interna-
tional audience.
"The only time I was disap-
pointed was when someone
told me it ,was a failure," Joel
says dryly as they sit at a local
Starbucks at the very un-rock
star time of 8 a.m. (Joel was
heading to Disneyland to cele-
brate their 28th birthday a day
early).
Paradoxically, in order to
move forward the band looked
to its past by enlisting Don
Gilmore, who produced their
self-titled 2000 debut.

There's been such . an
onslaught of animated movies
over the past year or so, it
only feels like they're coming
at you in 3-D.
"Meet the Robinsons" actu-
ally does, and it's one of the
more tolerable of the genre in
recent memory.
Thankfully, it doesn't con-
sist of smart-alecky talking
animals spewing one-liners
and pop culture references.
And the digital three-dimen-
sional effects are pretty spec-
tacular.,A lot of times with this
technology, it's too easy to
zing and fling things at the
audience, simply because 1you
can. It's gratuitous - and yes,
we're talking to you, Robert
Rodriguez. The most recent
"Spy Kids" movie is a prime
example of this.
The script itself, however
- credited to seven people -
is strictly two-dimensional.
Based on the book "A Day
With Wilbur Robinson" by
William Joyce, the film fol-
lows the adventures of young
Lewis (voiced by Daniel

Hansen), a bespectacled boy
whose mother left him at an
orphanage when he was an
infant. Being the science geek
and aspiring inventor that he
is, he creates a memory scan-
ner in with the hope of going
back and finding his mother.
Instead, Lewis winds up in
the future, having been
whisked away by his new
friend, Wilbur Robinson.
There, Wilbur's family of mis-
fits and weirdoes offers to
take him in.
So what's the central con-
flict 'here? Well, Lewis still
wants to find his mom, of


course. There's also an overly
zealous, mustache-twirling
guy in a bowler hat, named
Bowler Hat Guy, who's after
him for his device. Plus there
are all those pesky time-travel
issues regarding changing
history, and so forth.
It's hard to feel too emo-
tionally engaged by any of
this, but easy to watch. Kids
will probably be sufficiently
entertained, and adults can
just sit back and enjoy the eye
candy. Plus you get these
cool, dark glasses that make
anyone who wears them look
like Roy Orbison.

and more people get out on the
river, the risk of injury from
colliding with the sturgeon
increases.
"We're extremely con-
cerned," Parker said. "We had
eight people injured, some of
them very seriously, last year
and we want to just make sure
everyone is aware that the
sturgeon are out there in the
river and the possibility of col-
liding with one does exist.
We'll monitor the situation this
summer until the sturgeon
leave this fall."
FWC reports indicate some
areas of the river have had
more sturgeon-related colli-
sions that others.
'"The majority of the strikes
seemed to occur in the middle
river in Gilchrist County,"
Parker said. "Sturgeon can be
found anywhere in the
Suwannee, but that area seems
to be the most prevalent place
for collisions."
Last year FWC officials post-
ed signs along the river at boat
ramps alerting boaters
about the potential collision
hazards caused by the
jumping sturgeons.
"We posted signs along the
Suwannee at each boat ramp,
explaining the risk of impacts
with these fish," Hamlin said.
"We recommend boaters
reduce their speed to reduce
the risk of impact and to give
people more time to react if
they do encounter a jumping
sturgeon. We will be checking
each boat ramp on the
Suwannee this month to ensure
all the signs are still in place."
"We ordered 200 signs and I
have about 100 signs left,"
added Parker. "We put about
100 signs out at boat ramps
and at some of the local estab-
lishments along the river."
In the Suwannee River, which
appears to support the most
viable population of Gulf stur-
geon in the United States, biolo-
gists estimate the annual popu-
lation at between 2,250 and
3,000 fish, averaging about 40
pounds. Gulf sturgeon can grow
to,� feet in length and weighup
to 200 pounds. Sturgeon are a
protected species and may not
be harvested.
Adult fish spend eight to
nine months each year in the
river spawning and three to
four of the coolest months in
Gulf waters. Adult sturgeon
frequent areas near the
mouths of springs during the
summer months. They tend to
congregate in deeper waters
with moderate currents and
sand and rocky bottoms.
Biologists are unsure why
sturgeon jump.
"I have seen these collisions
referred to as 'attacks', however,
these fish are in no way 'attack-
ing' when they jump," said Jerry
'Krummrich, FWC regional
freshwater fish biologist. "They
are simply doing what they have
been doing for millions of yeas
- jumping. They aren't target-
ing the boaters."

would raise the statewide
sales tax from 6 percent to 8.5
percent in return for eliminat-
ing property taxes on primary
homes, known as homesteads.
Voters opposed that idea 48
percent to 44 percent - a sta-
tistical dead heat because that's
within the poll's 3 percent
plus-or-minus margin of error.
However, voters also said
they found sales tax fairer than
property tax by a whopping 63
percent to 28 percent.
House Speaker Marco
Rubio, R-West Miami, said he
found the poll results encour-
aging for the tax swap idea
that he and other Republicans
in his chamber are pushing.
House Democratic Leader
Dan Gelber of Miami Beach


interpreted the results
differently.
"Voters want relief, and they
don't want us to exchange one
crisis for another crisis,"
Gelber said.
Critics say sales tax is
regressive because it takes a
bigger percentage from the
incomes of poorer people than
wealthier residents. An argu-
ment on the other side is that
sales tax is fair because it
makes tourists pay for servic-
v;- they use while in Florida.

tion, bulletin boards will also be
placed at other public locations
around the city, including: The
Lake City Girls Club, The Boy's
Club, Recreation Department,
Richardson Community Center
and Epiphany Catholic School.
"We plan on putting them in
more schools as additional
sponsors come in," Wilson
said. "We're going to change
out the posters in it about
three or four times during the
school year."
The bulletin board cases are
aluminum, 22x28 inches with a
clear, Plexiglas cover. They are
built for indoor and outdoor
applications and are capable of
being locked.
'"We thought it was impor-
tant to get the message out
through the use of bulletin
boards just to save lives,"
Wilson said.
The fire department' cur-.
rently has 17 posters that they
plan to place in the bulletin
boards and Wilson said he also


has two more posters that
need sponsors.
The posters in the fire
department's bulletin boards
contain fire safety tips, prom
awareness messages and grad-
uation awareness.
"We're not just going to use
fire safety tips, but just safety
tips in general," Wilson said.
"We're hoping to help the chil-
dren be a little bit safer and get
them to think about stuff."
So far, Wilson said the bul-
letin board concept has drawn
a positive response from the
community.
"They all thought it was
great," Wilson said. "They did-
n't have any trouble and didn't
hesitate to tell. us to bring
them on it."
The fire department also
plans to sponsor fire safety
poster contests, where local
students can compete and the
winner will have their poster
placed in one 6f the bulletin
boards.


Anyone interested in spon-
soring one of the bulletin
boards can e-mail Wilson at
dcwilson@se.rr.com or call him
at the Lake City Fire
Department at 752-3312.
Each bulletin board will
have the sponsor's name
attached to it. Sponsorship
prices are $125 for a single bul-
letin board and $100 for each
additional board.
"We thank the sponsors for
making this possible, because
without them we wouldn't be
able to do it," Wilson said.
The fire department bulletin
boards will be installed in area
schools next week when
school resumes following
spring break.
"We've asked for the bulletin
boards to be in the lunchroom,
because that's where children
stay an extended period iof
time," Wilson said. "Hopefully
withinn the next week we cdan
start getting some posters up."


SHOWDOWN: Bush to veto
Continued From Page 1A


While both sides have spo-
ken positively about a need for
compromise, there also was
strong political pressure with-
in both parties for a veto fight.
Democrats are under pres-
sure to challenge Bush on the
war following their victories in
*last fall's elections. At the
same time, Republicans say
Bush will blame anti-war law-
makers if money begins to run
short for the troops in the field
and will accuse them in any
event for ceding ground to the
terrorists in the Middle East.
Gen. Peter. Pace, chairman of
the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the
House Defense Appropriations
Committee during the day that
a delay in funding would have a
chain reaction that could keep
units in Iraq longer than
planned. He said if the bill is not
passed by May 15, the Army
will have to cut back on reserve
training and equipment repairs,
and possibly delay the forma-
tion of units needed to relieve
those deployed.
The House-passed measure
requires the withdrawal of com-
bat troops by Sept. 1, 2008. The
Senate bill mandates the begin-
ning of. a withdrawal within
120 days, and sets a nonbinding
goal of March 2008, for its
completion.
Both bills contain more than
$90 billion for the military to con-
tinue operations in Afghanistan
as well as Iraq, where more than
3,200 U.S. troops have lost their
lives in four years of combat
Money for domestic programs
pushes the measures' totals
above $120 billion.
If anything, it is more likely
that House and Senate
Democrats will have trouble in
forging a compromise among
themselves than that they will


flinch from a confrontation with
the White House. Mindful of
the need to assure a flow of
funds, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa.,
said Congress may consider
passing monthlong spending
bills while it challenges Bush
over his war policy.
There is a strong reluctance
among the rank and file to
approve money for the war
without attaching conditions to
force a change in policy, and
lawmakers said that situation
portended a House-Senate
compromise that would include
provisions Bush has rejected.
"I don't think the leadership
will give in. I don't think they
can give in," said Rep. Jim
Moran, D-Va. '"We have very
strong feelings among mem-
bers. And the real strong push-
back would come from voters."
"I'm not willing not to have
input," said Murtha, who has
emerged in the past year as
one of the Democrats' most
vocal critics of the war.
Both bills contain in excess
of $20 billion in domestic
spending that the president
wants stripped out, including
large amounts for politically
popular programs such as dis-
aster aid to farmers and
money for victims of hurri-
canes Katrina and Rita.
House GOP Leader John
Boehner of Ohio addressed the
same issue in the meeting with
Bush. According to one partici-
pant, Boehner said there might
be a perception among White
House officials that the House
would not sustain a veto based
solely on spending. Boehner
said he thought that fear was
ungrounded, and the rank and
file responded with a standing
ovation, according to this
participant.

Billy is


our kid

Sator football
didn't start with
Steve Spurrier,
and there was
basketball at
the University of Florida
prior to the arrival of Billy
Donovan.
Norm Sloan, in his
second stint at Gainesville,
took the Gators to the
Sweet 19 in 1987 and won
the first SEC title at the
school. Sloan won a
national championship at
North Carolina State in
1974, derailing the
seven-year reign of UCLA
in the process.
Lon Kruger led Florida to
the Final four in 1994..
Kruger is now with UNLV
and the Running Rebels
advanced through two
rounds in this year's
tournament.
But, it was Billy the Kid
who brought the glory to
the Orange and Blue.
Florida has made nine
consecutive NCAA
tournament appearances
starting in 1999. The Gators
were runners-up in 2000,
beating Duke and North
Carolina along the way.
Florida's title run in 2006
was remarkable from a
team that lost three stars.
This year, the Gators won
another SEC title and a
third straight conference
tournament championship.
With probable one-year
players made mercenaries
by the new NBA age rule,
the Gators' return to the
Final Four with the same
starting five is the feel-good
story of the season.
Wanting to enjoy another
season of college has to
start with the coach.
Lake City fans will
remember the early years
of Donovan when he made
trips to the old Holiday Inn
to eat breakfast and talk
basketball. He doesn't have
to do that any more, but the
gesture solidified him with
local Gators.
Repeats are unlikely, but
the dream of this Florida
starting five deserves all
the praise. As does their
coach.
So, it's the 11th Annual
Old Timers event at
Ichetucknee State Park on
Saturday. Park employees
want to hear what it was
like back when.
One day won't hold the
charm because we will have
to burn tires on the bank of
the springs so we can swim
at night. We will have to
build a rickety old high
diving platform and put up
a rope swing or two.
We will have to pour
concrete around the bank
at the springs and bring our
boats upriver so we can
leak gas into the water. We
will have to float down the
river and leave beer cans all
along the way.
We will have to bust a
few heads jumping off the
bridge at U.S. 27. We will
have to dynamite the river
to divert it by our cabins.
Yeah, boy. Talk about the
good old days before the
state messed everything up.

end of the first half to take con-
trol of the game. The Tigers
(25-11) trailed by double digits
for the entire second half


before a late spurt cut it to five
with 3 seconds left.
K.C. Rivers scored 18
points and Vernon Hamilton
added 16 for Clemson, which
completed one of the most
up-and-down seasons in


school history. The Tigers
started out 17-0 before losing
nine of their next 11 games.
They turned things around in
late February winning five of
six before falling to Florida
State in the first round of the


Atlantic Coast Conference
tournament.
Clemson finished tied with
the 1986-87 team - led by
Horace Grant - for most
victories in school history.
The Tigers were trying to
become the third straight
team from South Carolina to
win the NIT. The University of
South Carolina had won the
last two titles.
The Tigers advanced to the
championship by holding off
Air Force; 68-67, in the other

West Virginia led 26-24 with
3:56 left in the first half before
hitting four straight 3-pointers
to take a 38-24 lead. Young,
who averaged 13.7 points in

to start the spurt.
Rivers' layup with 41.9
seconds left ended the 12-0
run. West Virginia was
8-for-14 (57 percent) from

The Mountaineers last lost
to Louisville in double

No room for the little guys at


this year's NCAA tournament


Powerhouse conferences
dominate tournament,
fill out Final Four.
By NANCY ARMOUR
Associated Press
ATLANTA - There won't be any
warm and fuzzy scenes like when Jim
Valvano sprinted across the court
looking for somebody to hug. You
won't see any blubbering meltdowns a
la Rollie Massimino, either.
And the next George Mason? That
dream got squashed two weeks ago.
Nope, this year's Final Four is all
about the power conferences. There
may as well be a sign: "No Underdogs
Allowed."
"What we did last year as a group
was pretty amazing," George Mason
coach Jim Larranaga said. "This year
it's what the high-major teams have
been able to do, which is survive some
incredible scares and advance.
"I just think what makes March
Madness so special is its


unpredictability."
Not this season. A year after George
Mason delighted the country with its
improbable run to the Final Four and
the mid-majors elevated themselves
with eight of the 34 at-large bids, the
power has shifted back to, well, the
powers.
For the first time since 1993 - and
only the second time since the NCAA
began seeding the field in 1979 - a 2
is the "highest" seed in the Final Four.
Each game Friday night features a
No. 1 vs. a No. 2 - Florida vs. UCLA
and Ohio State vs. Georgetown.
Some underdogs, those Bruins and
Hoyas. UCLA returns almost the
entire team that lost to Florida in the
title game last year and was ranked
No. 1 for six weeks this season.
Georgetown has one of the biggest
guys in college basketball and has
won 19 of its last 20.
"Last year, everyone was talking
about the mid-majors. This year,
everyone's excited about four of the
top teams in the country - who were
in probably everybody's mind at the


beginning of the year," Larranaga
said.
"It's a battle of Goliaths. There is no
David."
That takes some of the fun out of it.
Part of the tournament's charm is that
there always seems to be some high
seed that knocks off a team it should
have no business
beating - Valparaiso stunning
Mississippi on Bryce Drew's shot
from just across the
half-court line in 1998. Princeton beat-
ing defending champ UCLA in 1996.
Valvano's N.C. State was hardly a
mid-major, being from the ACC. But
the Wolfpack were a sixth-seed in
1983, and they beat two No. 2 seeds
and two No. Is, including Houston
and the Phi Slama Jama boys in the
championship game.
Villanova wasn't an unknown,
either, in 1985,
coming out of the Big East. But the
Wildcats were a lowly eighth seed
when they upset Patrick Ewing and

NEXTEL CUP
Goody's 500
Site: MartinsvilleVa.
Schedule:Today, qualifying (Speed Channel,
3:30 p.m.); Sunday, race (FOX, 1:30 p.m.).
Track: Martinsville Speedway (oval, 0.526
miles, 12 degrees banking in turns)
Race distance: 263 miles, 500 laps.
Last race: Kyle Busch held off teammate
Jeff Gordon on a restart, then beat Jeff Burton
in a drag race to the finish line to win the first
Car of Tomorrow race at Bristol Motor
Speedway. Busch took the lead with 16 laps to
go on a smooth pass around Denny Hamlin in
thick traffic and stayed there through a pair of
cautions. Busch had driven away from the
competition when the 15th and final caution
set up overtime.
Last year:Tony Stewart banged on Jimmie
Johnrison's bumper for four laps, then finally
beat him out of the second turn on his way to
a surprisingly anticlimactic victory at
Martinsville Speedway. The victory was
Stewart's first in 20 races.
Fast facts: Sunday's win was the 600th for
manufacturer Chevrolet, which introduced
the Impala SS this weekend to coincide with
NASCAR's debut of the Car of Tomorrow.
The COT spent seven years in development
as NASCAR tried to build a uniform car that
would cut costs, improve safety and even the
competition. It will be used in 16 races this
season, including this week's, as NASCAR
phases it in through the 2009 season ...
Gordon is atop the standings for the first time
since winning the 2005 Daytona 500. He has
seven career wins at Martinsville, most among
active drivers and third behind Richard Petty
(15) and Darrell Waltrfp (11).... Stewart has a
win and three top-five finishes in the past
three years at Martinsville.... Brian Vickers suf-
fered second-degree burns to his feet when
an exhaust pipe broke midway through the
Bristol race. Team Red Bull officials said he
would be prepared to race this weekend.

Race distance: 131.5 miles, 250 laps.
Last race: Mike Skinner bumped past Clint
Bowyer to take the lead on a restart seven
laps from the finish and raced away to his
second straight victory on March 16. Todd


Bodine, last spring's winner at Atlanta,
followed Skinner past Bowyer to grab second
place on lap 124 of the 130-lap event, but the
leader was just too strong, pulling away to a
five-length victory.
Last year: David Starr held the lead
through eight restarts over the final' 121 laps
to win the Kroger 250.
Fast facts: Skinner will try to become the
first driver in series history to have two three-
race winning streaks. His first came in 1996,
when he won at Tucson, Denver and Topeka.
He also won at Martinsville that year....There
have been 15 different winners in 16 truck
events at Martinsville. Dennis Setzer
(2002-03) is the only repeat winner. ...Toyota
drivers have won all three races this season.
Last year, it became the first manufacturer to
sweep both Martinsville events.... No Kroger

championship that season.

Last race: DanWheldon fought off an early
challenge from Sam Hornish Jr. and easily
overcame a bad pit stop to drive away with his
third straight win at Homestead-Miami
Speedway. It's the first time in the 12-year
history of the IndyCar Series that a driver has
won three straight races at the same track.
Last year: Helio Castroneves turned his
luck around by winning the Grand Prix of
St. Petersburg when Scott Dixon's fuel
strategy came up just short. Castroneves had
not finished the three previous road races in
the series
Fast facts: The winner of the season-
opening race has gone on to win the title in
four of the last six years. ...Pablo Perez,
driving his first race for Target Chip Ganassi
Racing, was hospitalized after crashing at
Homestead: He had surgery to remove
shrapnel from his legs, which were injured
when his car hurtled into the catch-fencing
during a five-car wreck....The 2005 race was

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS FRIDAY, MARCH 30, 2007


Ochoa strong, Sorenstam


stumbles in first round


By DOUG FERGUSON
Associated Press

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif.
- Lorena Ochoa took the first
step toward overtaking
Annika Sorenstam at No. 1 in
the world.
Even though her putting
wasn't up to her standards,
Ochoa hit it close enough
Thursday at the Kraft Nabisco
Championship to make five
birdies and open with a
3-under 69 in tough
conditions, leaving her one
shot behind Shi Hyun Ahn in
the first major of the year.
"I feel good. I'm ready to
go," said Ochoa, who can
move to No. 1 with a victory.
Tough conditions at
Mission Hills kept Ochoa and
everyone else from going
anywhere too quick. Unlike a
year ago, when Ochoa tied an
LPGA major record with a 62,
the greens were too firm and
the rough too thick to allow
for that kind of scoring.
And as hard as she tried,
defending Karrie Webb
couldn't repeat her 18th hole
magic.
Webb holed a pitching
wedge from 116 yards for
,eagle on the final hole of the
fourth round last year to make
up a seven-shot deficit,
eventually beating Ochoa in a
playoff. She was only 82 yards
away Thursday, hit a full sand
wedge that rode the slope and
flirted with going into the
hole. It stopped a few inches
away.
Webb feigned disgust, slam-
ming her sand wedge to the

turf with a smile on her face.
The tap-in birdie gave her a
70, putting her in a group that
included Maria Hjorth of
Sweden and Catriona
Matthew of Scotland.
"I was just having some fun,
like, 'Damn. Didn't go in the
hole,"' Webb said.
Sorenstam, meanwhile,.
struggled.
Even after finishing with a
birdie, she jammed her putter
into the bag with disgust, then
stood behind the ninth green
with hands on her hips after
her worst start at a major in
seven years. She shot 75, a
score that could have been
higher-if not for a few par
saves.
"I'd like to forget this day,"


she said.
Ahn took the lead on a
sun-soaked day in the desert,
overcoming some jitters about
being in a major and staying
true to her plan of not taking
her golf so seriously. She
made six birdies in her round
of 4-under 68.
It was a strong round for
Ahn, the LPGA rookie of the
year in 2004, for Mission Hills
was tougher than ever. The
course was lengthened by 104
yards to measure 6,673 yards,
the rough was thick enough to
be a half-stroke penalty and
the greens were so firm that
Webb already noticed a sheen
on the putting surfaces.
"They're Sunday hard right
now," Webb said.


'WOLVES: Lose 5-3 lead in 7th inning

walks and four strikeouts.
Jessica led the Stars at the
plate, going 3-for-4 with a dou-
ble, two RBIs and three runs
scored. Kasey Fagan was 2-for-
3 with a double and three
RBIs.
Shannon Outman was the
winning pitcher.


The 'Wolves did not fare
much better in the second
game of the afternoon, falling
7-5 to FCCJ.
The Stars went ahead 2-0 at
the end of one inning and were
up 3-2 before Lake City rallied
to take a 5-3 going into the
seventh inning.


But the 'Wolves gave up four
runs in the top of the final
inning and could only punch in
one themselves.

NCAA: Mid-majors quiet this year


Continued From Page 1B
mighty Georgetown.
Last year, the mid-majors
ran amok. Besides George
Mason, Bradley, Gonzaga and
Wichita State all made the
round of 16.
'The parity in college
basketball is just so close
now," UCLA coach Ben
Howland said. "Anybody can
beat anybody on a given day. I
mean, I really believe that we
can beat anybody on a given
day. I still believe we can be
beaten by anybody on a given
day."
That the Final Four wound
up this way isn't really a
surprise, though. While the
regular season was a model of
equality - a record-tying 48
schools were ranked at some
point - the big schools have
dominated the NCAA
tournament.
It started with the selection
committee, which gave the
mid-majors two fewer at-large
bids than they had last year.
While that made for plenty of
howling, it looks now as if the
committee got it right.
Sure, teeny Winthrop
knocked off Notre Dame. But
that was in the first round, and
the 11th-seeded Eagles were
headed back to Rock Hill, S.C.,
by the time the first weekend
was over. Winthrop wasn't
exactly a typical underdog,
either, having been ranked the
final two weeks of the season.
Only one other double-digit
seed won its first-round game,
and neither Winthrop nor
Virginia Commonwealth were
around after the first weekend.
It's the first time since 1995
that no double-digit seeds
have advanced to at least the
third round.
There was such a dearth of
underdogs that the Oregon
players were asked last
weekend if they felt like this
year's George Mason.
"We take it personally,"


Oregon's Bryce Taylor said.
"We just use it as extra
motivation to prove that we
deserve being here."
Mind you, the Ducks were
seeded third. Third! There's
nothing underdog about that.
Not that there weren't
chances for upsets.
Top-seeded Ohio State was
two seconds away from losing
to ninth-seeded Xavier before
Ron Lewis hit a 3-pointer from
several feet beyond the arc to
force overtime in the second
round. The Buckeyes then
dominated overtime.
Kansas struggled with
Southern Illinois' grind-it-out
defense in the regional
semifinals and barely pre-
vailed. Granted, the Salukis
were a No. 4 seed. But a
Missouri Valley team is always


going to be an underdog
against a Big 12 school - or
anyone from the top seven
conferences.
"Last year there were quite a
few mid-major programs that
had the perfect ingredients for
pulling off some big upsets,"
Larranaga said. "This year,
some of those teams also got
very, very close to doing it
and, for one reason or another,
fell slightly short.
"It's always been difficult
(for underdogs). It'll continue
to be difficult," he added. "But
it's what makes the tourna-
ment so good and unpre-
dictable. In any given year,
somebody can get hot at the
right time and do some
amazing things."
Just not this year.


Cortesio calls exhibition game

just like the weather: flawless


By RICK GANO
Associated Press

MESA, Ariz. - Ria
Cortesio hustled all over the
infield and made her calls
with an emphatic fist pump.
Always in the right position,
she did what every umpire
hopes to do during a
ballgame: She blended in.
Cortesio became the first
female umpire to work a
major league exhibition game
since Pam Postema in 1989
when she made calls on the
bases Thursday as the
Chicago Cubs beat an
Arizona Diamondbacks split
squad 7-4.
Her performance before a
HoHoKam Park record
crowd of 12,917 was pretty
much like the sunny 64-
degree day. It was flawless.
"It was pretty uneventful. I
didn't have much," Cortesio
said.
At least not on the field.
Her phone started ringing
early Thursday morning as
the hype surrounding
her assignment began to
build.
"When I found out I had
this game, my plan was to
sneak in, .work the game and
sneak out and hope no one
noticed," she said. 'That
didn't happen."
Working with major league
umpire Mike Winters on the
bases while another minor
league ump, Jason Kiser,
handled the plate, Cortesio
was at first base for the first
two innings before she
switched across the diamond
to third and then back again
a couple of times. The
moving around from side to
side is standard for spring
training games.
With a dark blue hat, light
blue short-sleeved shirt and
gray slacks, Cortesio looked
very much like the other
two umps - just a bit
thinner.
Cortesio knew several
players in the game because
they were also in the minor
leagues where she worked.
"I got a lot of, 'Hey Ria
where are you going to be
this year?' That's the ques-
tion. As of right now, I'm

going back to the Southern
League, but that's subject to
change at any minute. As
soon as a spot opens up at
Triple-A, it's mine," she said.
Early in the game, she
reached down to tie her shoe
and minutes later was in
action when Donnie Sadler
dropped down a bunt and
raced to first. She signaled

safe as the throw from
Chicago's Mark DeRosa
sailed past first for an error.
Later on, positioned
between first and second, she
hurried across the basepath
to call Mark Reynolds out at
first on a grounder. There
were only three umps instead
of the usual four, so Cortesio
was forced to cover more
ground in the infield.
Cortesio is the only female
umpire in professional
baseball. At 30, she is starting
her ninth year overall and
fifth in Double-A.
Once she makes it to
Triple-A, she'll be evaluated
by major league umpire
supervisors.
If she's judged good
enough, she would be invited
to the Fall League, then to a
full schedule of major league
spring training games and
finally to a spot as a fill-in in
the majors.
No female umpire has ever
worked a regular-season
game in the majors. Cortesio
obviously hopes to be the
first. That's her plan.
"Absolute best-case sce-
nario, we're looking at 2009
to get a couple of games," she
said.

HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-April
19): Look to the future. This
is no time to live in the past.
-. Anyone who cannot keep up
will be left behind. Strive for
perfection and completion and
you will be noticed. Do what-
ever is required to. put your
ideas and intentions into play.

TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Challenge yourself and
you will raise your confidence
and prove how capable you
are. Deal with issues concern-
ing children or older relatives.
Love is on the rise, so put a lit-
tle time aside for romance.

GEMINI (May 21-June
20): Be careful how you han-
dle people today. Emotional
issues will arise if you have
been flirting or not giving
proper homage to the people
who count on you. Someone
from your past may be enticing
but probably not worth the
trouble it will cause. **
CANCER (June 21-July
22): You can accomplish a lot
if you communicate with peo-
ple who are experiencing simi-


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Word

lar situations. Attend a confer-
ence, tradeshow or surf the
net for information that will
help give you the answers you
need to move forward. ****-
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Finish what you start so you
can enjoy the weekend. You
can get involved in a money
deal but don't go overboard,
spending more than you can
afford. This is the day to be
conservative and conscien-
tious about saving. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Don't let anyone annoy
you or get your dander up.
Remain calm if you don't want
emotional situations to spin
out of control. Relationships
can be good but a change of
heart can be expected if you
don't keep things simple.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Don't overspend on luxu-
ry items or products that
promise to make you look 10
years younger. Instead, do


things that will really work like
exercise and proper eating
habits. Face your current bad
habits and correct them. ***
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): Trust in yourself, not
someone else. A chance oppor-
tunity to get your work pre-
sented or at least looked at is
likely if you attend an industry
event. Your love life is picking
up, so turn on the charm.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-
Dec. 21): You may think you
have everyone convinced or
fooled into doing as you say
but don't be too sure. Someone
will question you and your
motives. Be prepared to
answer confidently or you may
lose ground or even a deal you
thought you had in the bag.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19): Take a walk down
memory lane and you will find
answers to questions about a
financial deal or a health issue.
Romance is on the rise, so be
sure to make special plans for
two. *****w
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
18): Health issues may arise if
you haven't been taking good
care of yourself. You can rely
on someone who cares about
you to see you through any
upset you encounter. Someone
you trust and respect will
guide you positively. ***-
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Don't become jealous or
revengeful or let the past lead
you to distraction. It's time to
let go and move on. Past
regrets are a waste of time.
Gossip will come back to haunt
you. Honesty and kindness
will be the key. **


DEAR ABBY


Mom decides to support son's


decision to join the military


DEAR ABBY: I have a
son, 17, and a 14-year-old
daughter. Both have met with
military recruiters from
almost all the branches at
school. At first, I was furious.
However, my husband and I
decided to meet with each
recruiter and discuss the
options with our son. He
thought we'd oppose his join-
ing and wanted to shut us out.
As a mom, I don't want my
child to die in a war - no par-
ent does. As a citizen who val-
ues our soldiers defending
our nation, I couldn't be
prouder of our servicemen
and women.
Our children will do as they
choose. At 18, they can enlist.
Our choice is whether to be a
part of it. Personally, I want to
be a part of my son's life, so I
will support him in every way
possible and pray several
times a day. - SOON-TO-
BE MOM OF A SERVICE-
MAN AND POSSIBLY A
SERVICEWOMAN
DEAR MOM: Your idea of
meeting with the recruiters
who were talking to your chil-
dren was an excellent one,
and an option I - and I'll bet
many of my readers - did
not know was available.
DEAR ABBY: Our coun-
try needs dedicated,
informed young men and
women who know the risks
and consequences of their
voluntary service.
One option she should


Abigail Van
ww.deorobby.com


mention to her twins is to
attend college and participate
in the Reserve Officer
Training Corps (ROTC).
They would incur no obliga-
tion for the first two years.
This would give them the
chance to experience a little
of what military duty entails,
and make an informed deci-
sion whether or not to pursue
an active tour of duty' If, at
that point, they decide 'to join
the military, completing the
ROTC program would put
them inline for a commission
as an officer.
Having spent 32 years in
the Army as both an enlisted
man and as an officer, I've
served with or led some of
the finest young people this
country can offer. The best
ones were always those who
had the facts before deciding
to join. - COL., U.S.
ARMY (RET.)
DEAR ABBY: I'm a for-
mer Army recruiter. I under-
stand the fear that "Cleveland
Mom" and her husband are
facing. I faced it myself as I
enlisted young men and
women knowing that the
answer to, "Am I going to


Iraq?" was, in many cases,
"Yes." Regardless, our Army
is necessary and does not
'serve solely for the conflict in
Iraq. Our military is
equipped, trained and ready
to serve not only in combat,
but in humanitarian support
as well.
My recommendation to
your readers is not to dis-
courage youth who wish to
serve. Rather, assist them in
asking smart, pointed ques-
tions when they visit their
recruiter. A good recruiter
will answer honestly and to
the best of his or her ability. It
is also common for a family
member to request to accom-
pany their recruit as he or
she chooses a job at the
Military Entrance Processing
Station.
Some things to bear in
mind: Every service is differ-
ent in its job assignments and
contract length. Jobs are
based on the Armed Services
Vocational Aptitude Battery
score, physical ability, moral
background and availability.
Everyone signs up for eight
years of Military Service
Obligation (generally two to
four years active service, with
the remainder as an inactive
reservist), and only 15 per-
cent of the population ages 17
to 24 is qualified to serve. -
