"My intention is to try to open

other employees, was laid off

reopen the center in a more
cost-efficient manner; the cen-

Thorpe, who also is an ap-

The Early Learning Coalition of the
Nature Coast will receive funding
from United Way of Citrus County for
services after the organization sev-
ered ties with a fellow nonprofit
The Early Learning Coalition serves
Citrus, Dixie, Gilchrist, Levy, and
Sumter counties. There are about
1,760 children in child care centers

After a meeting with United Way of-
ficials, the Early Learning Coalition is
slated to receive $45,000 from United
Way - money-that used to be funneled
to the group through Childhood De-
velopment Services.
"We had a lot at stake," Early Learn-
ing executive director Sonja Bosanko
said. "We had a lot of families that
would have been impacted."
In an effort to save about $101,000,
leaders of the Early Learning Coali-
tion decided not to renew their con-
tract with Childhood Development
Services (CDS) as of July 1.
The contract with CDS was for
$898,000 for the agency to determine
and track the eligibility of children in
programs and pay providers. CDS
used to do more for the coalition, but
over the last few years, coalition offi-
cials have taken on more tasks, in-
cluding providing training and
inspecting early learning centers.
In previous years, United Way has
awarded CDS about $45,000 per year
to aid in providing child care and early
learning education to at-risk and low-
income families within the Early
Learning Coalition.
For every dollar donated by United
Way, $15.66 in federal money came to
Citrus County.
The Early Learning Coalition sub-
mitted an application to receive
$45,000 from United Way so it could
continue receiving the federal funds

'House passes insurance bill
�,'~ .

Associated Press

Florida House has passed a
bill that would increase in-
surance rates for more than
�t 1 million property insur-
ance policyholders.
The bill (HB 1495) limits
the annual rate increases to
San average of 10 percent for

customers of the state-
backed Citizens Property In-
surance Corp.
SThe measure passed Fri-
day on a 75-33 vote.
Without the legislation,'
policyholders could see pre-
miums increase more than
40 percent onJan. 1. Instead,
they'll pay the increase in
smaller increments.

NRC staffwill be available
to answer questions on the
safety performance of the
Crystal River plant, as well
as the NRC role in ensuring
safe plant operation.
A letter sent from the NRC,
Region II office to plant offi-
cials addresses the perform-
ance of the plant during 2008

and will serve as the basis
for the meeting discussion. It
is available on the NRC Web
site at: www.nrc.gov/NRR
TERS/cr 2008q4.pdf.
The NRC found that the
Crystal River plant met all
NRC safety objectives dur-
ing 2008, and performance at
the plant was at a level that
resulted in no additional
NRC oversight.

This year, the NRC plans
to continue to conduct the
very detailed inspections re-
quired at those plants oper-
ating well. Those inspections
are by NRC resident inspec-
tors assigned to the site sup-
plemented by more specific
inspections completed by re-
gion-based NRC inspectors.
In addition to the detailed
routine inspections, the
agency will complete some

generic inspections ranging
from operator licensing ex-
aminations to emergency re-
sponse to ground water
protection at Crystal River
in 2009.
Current performance in-
formation for the Crystal
River plant is available on

Inmates, families upset about snack prices

Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE - Having to pay
more for Honey Buns and other prison
snack shop items has made inmates at
Florida prisons and their families
The state, which has the nation's
third largest state prison system,
raised prices about three weeks ago
under a new contract with an outside
company. Since then, the department
has gotten approximately 60 phone
calls and letters from families com-
plaining about the increases.
"The prices have increased dramat-
ically," one inmate's family wrote in an
e-mail to the department signed "con-
cerned' family." "We have to send
money to our loved one and now he
can hardly buy anything sibstahtial:
Please can we fix this?"
Officials are working with the com-
pany that provides the goods and sets
the prices at Florida's about 130 pris-
ons to see if some prices can be low-
ered, Department of Corrections
spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said Fri-
day. Prices at the snack shops, called
canteens, were last changed in October
While it's not unusual to get complaints
when prices increase, Plessinger said
there seem to be more this time.
"Prices are going up everywhere,"
Plessinger said. "We're sympathetic to
them, but it's tough on everyone."
Prices went up March 30. Peanut
M&Ms and Snickers bars jumped from
66 cents to 89 cents. A can of Coke that
used to cost 57 cents now costs 89.
But the price increase that has
prompted the most outrage is on
Honey Buns. The old price for the cin-
namon pastry with icing was 66 cents.

What's going
to happen? There're
going to be more
fights. People are
going to (become)

Jill Lopez

Now it's 99 cents. A chocolate variety
of the sweet went from 61 cents to
The department is looking at possi-
bly substituting another less-expen-
sive brand, Plessinger said.
Also up: cigarettes. A pack of Marl-
boro cigarettes used to cost $3.70 but
is now $4.47 - an increase of 77 ients.
The increase is, in part, the result of
62-cent-per-pack federal sales tax in-
crease that went into effect April 1.
Prisons in other states also reported
increasing their prices on cigarettes
as a result
Money from canteen sales goes into
the state's general fund, about $30 mil-
lion last year according to the depart-
ment. The prices have to be in line
with what the general public pays for
The department contracts with Mis-
souri-based Keefe Commissary Net-
work to supply the commissaries.
Mark Jensen, senior vice president of
Centric Group, Keefe's parent com-
pany, said the nationwide supplier of
products to correctional facility com-
missaries doesn't comment on current

customers or contracts.
Inmates use a plastic ID card that
works like a debit card to buy items.
Some prisoners have jobs that pay a
small amount, but most money is de-
posited in an inmate's account by fam-
ily members.
Jill Lopez has two young children
and a fiance in prison in Raiford in
north Florida who she sends between
$20 and $40 a week
"I can't send him any more. There's
no way," said Lopez, 46, a Fort Pierce
secretary who makes $12 an hour
Lopez's fiance, Fred Whyms, 39, has
about two years left in prison for deal-
ing in stolen property. He told her in-
mates are extremely frustrated with
the price increases and that some
items are going missing.
"They're all freaking out," Lopez
said in a telephone interview. "You
have grown men that are hungry.
What's going to happen? There're
going to be more fights. People are
going to (become) crankier"
In some places that has already hap-
pened, according to Charles Norman,

He added: "That's very,

urer and co-chairman of the
St Raphael's used the
canning center last year for
the same purpose, putting
together 98 dozen pierogi for

realize that the pierogi
would be sold.
"They told me it was for a
church function and I failed
to ask what type of func-
tion," DeVries said. "I didn't
know it was a fundraiser."
The pierogi fundraiser
will not die, however.
"We're going to end up
making them," Chelovitz
said, "here in our house."

State budget deal elusive

Lawmakers still

hashing out details

Associated Press

Senate leaders failed to break a
deadlock Friday over key prelimi-
nary issues that must be resolved
before formal budget negotiations
can begin just a week away from the
scheduled close of the regular leg-
islative session.
Senate President Jeff Atwater
and House Speaker Larry Cretul
told their respective chambers to go
home for the weekend after a sev-
enth day of behind-the-scenes talks
without an agreement.
"We've certainly narrowed mat-
ters," said Atwater, R-North Palm

Beach. "But there are some gaps
that remain."
Atwater said he still held out
hope for an on-time finish a week
from Friday, but acknowledged that
would be tough. He declined to dis-
cuss details of his talks with Cretul,
To adjourn on schedule, joint
conference committees would have
only two days when lawmakers re-
turn Monday to complete formal
budget negotiations that usually
take a week or more, including
weekend meetings.
The budget must be settled,
printed and distributed to all mem-
bers and top state officials by mid-
night Tuesday. That's because the
Florida Constitution requires a 72-
hour cooling off period to permit
public review of the compromise
budget plan before a final vote.
If lawmakers cannot meet that

deadline, their options are to ex-
tend the session or meet in special
"The May 1 thing, we can talk
about it, but I don't think it's going
to happen," said Sen. Jim King, a
Jacksonville Republican and for-
mer Senate president.."I hope I'm
Cretul, Atwater and other top
leaders have been unable to agree
on how much and what kind of new
taxes and fees the budget should in-
clude and how much money should
be apportioned to each major
spending area such as education
and health and human services.
While the leaders talked in pri-
vate, both chambers tended to other
business and two groupfilled the
Capitol rotunda to hold budget
protests - state employees and
workers from a small Miami-based
cigarette company.

State workers' chants of "Enough
is enough" could be heard in the
legislative chambers. They're angry

Court: State can

overrule doctors

in Medicaid cases

Advocates fret

decision could

limit care
Associated Press

MIAMI - State-run in-
surance plans for the poor
and disabled can't be
forced to pay for a treat-
ment if they disagree with
a doctor over whether it's
necessary, a federal ap-
peals court ruled Friday.
The decision from the
llth U.S. Circuit Court of
Appeals said state Medi-
caid officials can't be ex-
cluded from determining
the care of a 14-year-old
Georgia girl who suffers
from near-daily seizures.
Her mother filed a lawsuit
after the state cut the num-
ber of hours the girl was
seen by a home nurse.
The ruling applies to Ala-
bama, Florida and Georgia,
where health care advo-
cates fear it could allow
state health agencies to
overrule doctors' reco-
mendations. They also wor-
ry it would allow for-profit
Medicaid contractors to de-
cide on treatments based
cost instead of health needs.
Anna Moore's mother,
Pamela Moore, sued Geor-
gia Medicaid in 2007 after
she was told they were cut-
ting the number of home
nursing hours from 94 to 84
a week The teen, who suf-
fered a stroke in utero, at-
tends school occasionally,
but often requires medical
intervention because of
the strokes and frequent
breathing problems, At-
lanta Legal Aid Society at-

torney David Webster said.
Florida and Alabama
joined Georgia in fighting
the lawsuit, citing a federal
regulation which allows
them to limit service based
on "medical necessity."
The states were con-
cerned that if the decision
of medical necessity is left
solely in the hands of doc-
tors, they would be forced
to pay for "unproven, dan-
gerous, ineffective, cos-
metic, unnecessary, bizarre,
and controversial treat-
ments," according to court
The appeals court ruled
Friday states can't be ex-
cluded from determining
what care Medicaid pays
"Both the state and
Moore's physician have
roles in determining what
medical measures are nec-
essary to "correct or ame-
liorate" Moore's medical
conditions," according to
the ruling. The case was
returned to district court
for a rehearing.
More than a dozen other
agencies filed friend-of-the-
court briefs for the Moores,
including Florida Pediatric
Society, Voices for Georgia's
Children and some chap-
ters of Easter Seals.
"It's disappointing when
a doctor's decision based
on his or her judgment
can't be the final say in a
matter," said Katy Neas,
vice president of govern-
ment relations for Easter
Seals. "The state has an
obligation to control costs,
but we think people are
healthiest when they and
their doctors can make de-
cisions about what inter-
ventions are best."

Robber hits Floral City store


Authorities are searching
for a man who robbed a
Floral City convenience
store Friday afternoon.
Citrus County Sheriff's
deputies were dispatched to
the Citgo, at 7810 S. Florida
Avenue, shortly before 3 p.m.
Witnesses said a lone
white male entered the
store and took an undis-
closed amount of cash out
of the clerk's drawer. While
the man said he had a gun,
he never showed a weapon.
The suspect is believed to
have left in a tan or beige-
colored Chrysler Sebring,
with a partial Florida tag
number of 871, heading

southbound on U.S. 41.
In the meantime, the
Marion County Sheriff's Of-
fice advised the CCSO that
a tan Chrysler Sebring,
Florida tag number 871
KZK, had been stolen from
their county by a person
wearing a yellow shirt
The Citgo robber is said
to be 35 to 45 years old, 5
feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall,
approximately 175 pounds,
with a medium build. He
was wearing a yellow shirt
with a green design, and
what.appeared to be a red
and yellow bandana tied
around his head.
Anyone with information
is asked to immediately call
911 or 726-1121.


Lawmakers consider
offshore oil drilling
The House is ready to vote
on a bill that would let the gov-
ernor and Cabinet approve oil
drilling as close as three miles
off Florida's coast after Democ
rats spent more than an hour
raising concers that the pro-
posal could hurt the environ-
ment and tourism.
Democrats also questioned
why the proposal came up so
late in the 60-day annual leg-
islative session and whether
there's even enough oil off the
state's coast to make explo-
ration for it and natural gas
Rep. Charles Van Zant de-
fended his measure (H.B.
1219) that could allow drilling
between three and 10.5 miles
off the coast in waters con-
trolled by the state. He said
new technology would keep al
drilling equipment below the
water line and virtually assure
no spills.
"Are you saying that oil spills
are a thing of the past?" Rep.
Leonard Bembry, D-Greenville

asked skeptically.
"Will I give you a 100 per-
Scent?" VanZant, R-Keystone
Heights, responded. "No sir,
but I can tell you it is very, very
Van Zant said the proposal
could bring Florida more than
$6 billion a year and create
more than 16,000 jobs.
"What we're trying to do here
is to get ourselves off foreign
oil," Van Zant said.
State could get
religious license plates.
Florida would issue a license
plate with the image of Jesus
and another with a cross if law-
makers pass a bill now in the
The Senate on Friday
amended a bill to add the two
plates and others. The House
did the same to a similar bill,
but later reconsidered and the
sponsor withdrew his amend-
I ment.
The cross tag was proposed
last year but did not pass.

Approved an identical plate, be-
coming the first state to promi-
,nently feature a religious

symbol on a vehicle tag.

dered South Carolina to stop

tionality is resolved.

10-foot guitar statue
stolen in Orlando
Gibson Guitar is offering a
$1,000 reward for the return of
a 10-foot guitar sculpture miss-
ing in Orlando.
The company said Friday
the sculpture was supposed to
be part of a charity auction.
Gibson says no charges will be
pressed if the sculpture is re-
turned by midnight on Saturday
to either the restaurant from
which it was stolen, or a Gib-
son showroom.
The company says the guitar
would have been auctioned for
thousands of dollars, with the
proceeds going to a local char-

Appeals court

revokes order

of deportation

Associated Press

ATLANTA - A federal
appeals court has revoked a
deportation order for a
woman who pleaded no
contest to taking a pair of
shoes from a store in
Florida, then was pre-
sumed by immigration offi-
cials to have committed a
crime of moral turpitude.
A three-judge panel of
the 11th U.S. Circuit Court
of Appeals ruled Friday
that the Board of Immigra-
tion Appeals made a mis-
take "in going beyond the
record of conviction" of
Kristina Zorba Remon. The
panel returned the case to
the BIA for further review.
Remon's lawyer; Tania
Galloni of the Immigrant
Advocacy Center in Miami,
said it is an important case
because the BIA should go
by the facts "instead of bas-
ing its decision on a pre-
Remon is a Macedonian
native and lawful perma-
nent resident of the United
States, married to a U.S. cit-
izen, the attorney said.
Her dilemma began, Gal-
loni said, when she was ac-
cused of taking the shoes
and was offered a plea of no
contest - which doesn't
admit guilt - to a Florida
charge of general theft.
That charge covers both an
intentional or uninten-
tional taking, Galloni said.
"She had no intent to take
them at all," Galloni said,
but it was easier to plead no

risk a more serious convic-
"It's a trick area for peo-
ple who don't understand
all the consequences," the
attorney said.
In Remon's case, when
she returned to the country
after a trip abroad, immi-
gration officials interpreted
the general theft conviction
as intentional taking, which
under the law is a crime of
moral turpitude. That can
lead to deportation.
An immigration judge or-
dered Remon's removal
from the country, and the
BIA affirmed the order.
Galloni said Remon has
continued to live in the
United States pending the

Murphy wins N.Y. House race after concession

Associated Press
Democrat Scott Murphy cam-
paigns for the 20th Congressional
District seat in Albany, N.Y. Almost
a month after an election that was
expected to be a referendum on
President Barack Obama's stimulus
plan, Murphy won the race after Re-
publican James Tedisco conceded.

Associated Press

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. -Almost a
month after a special election in a
heavily Republican congressional
district, the Democratic candidate
claimed victory Friday when his
GOP opponent conceded in a race
that focused attention on President
Barack Obama's stimulus plan.
After the March 31 election in
New York's 20th District, Democrat
Scott Murphy and Republican Jim
Tedisco were separated by a hand-
ful of votes with thousands of ab-
sentee ballots to be counted. For
nearly four weeks, the lead flipped
back and forth but Murphy's advan-
tage started to grow this week and
was more than 400 votes on Thurs-
Murphy is a venture capitalist
multimillionaire from Missouri
who has lived in New York for more
than a decade. He replaces Democ-
rat Kirsten Gillibrand, who suc-
ceeded Hillary Rodham Clinton in
the U.S. Senate after Clinton was

chosen to be Obama's secretary of
Surrounded by friends and fam-
ily, Murphy discussed his victory as
he stood outdoors in the business
district of Glens Falls, 45 miles
north of Albany, during rush hour
Friday evening. He grinned as cars
honked as they drove through a
nearby roundabout and people
yelled "We love you, Scott."
Murphy said he expects to be
sworn in next week, and that he's
looking forward to getting to Wash-
ington where "the work's piled up."
He said he received calls of con-
gratulations from Obama and Gilli-
brand, both of whom had endorsed
Obama's $787 billion stimulus
plan was an issue on the campaign
trail. Tedisco attacked Murphy for
supporting the plan, while Murphy
criticized Tedisco for refusing to
take a stance on the stimulus for
most of the campaign, a misstep
that ultimately hurt the veteran as-

In a statement, Tedisco congratu-
lated Murphy and said he'd work
with him in his role as a state as-
"It became clear that the num-
bers were not going our way and
that the time had come to step aside
and ensure that the next Congress-
man be seated as quickly as possi-
ble," he said. "In the interest of the
citizens of the 20th Congressional
District and our nation, I wish Scott
the very best"
Murphy said he was grateful for
Tedisco's offer for help in the dis-
trict He declined to talk about the
frequently negative overtones of the
campaign, including political ads.
The diverse district stretches
from the rural Adirondack Moun-
tains, south of the Canadian border,
to the mid-Hudson Valley, north of
New York City. It has more than
196,000 registered Republicans
compared with about 125,000 De-
Nationwide, Republicans have
taken a pounding in the past two

election cycles and in New York, the
pain has been acute. They lost three
congressional seats in 2006 and
three more last year, leaving just
three Republicans in the 29-seat
state delegation. They also lost the
state Senate for the first time in four
decades last November, and every
statewide elected office is held by a
Early on, Republican Party
Chairman Michael Steele declared
the 20th a top priority for 2009. For
Republicans, victory would have
given them a claim in the heavily
Democratic Northeast
Still, National Republican Con-
gressional Committee Chairman
Pete Sessions described the race as
a symbolic victory for Republicans.
"We should not ignore some of
the encouraging signs that came out
of this race," Sessions said in a
statement 'Just a few short months
ago, President Obama carried this
district and Kirsten Gillibrand won
by an overwhelming margin against
a well-funded challenger."

Magnitude of dirty VA

medical equipment unknown

Associated Press

- Thousands of veterans
were. at first shocked to
learn they should get blood
tests for HIV and hepatitis
because three hospitals
might have treated them
with unsterile equipment.
Now, just a couple of
months after the Depart-
ment of Veterans Affairs is-
sued the dire warnings,
veterans are growing frus-
trated by the lack of infor-
mation from the tightlipped
federal agency
Nearly 11,000 former
sailors, soldiers, airmen and
Marines could have been
exposed to infectious dis-
eases because three VA hos-
pitals in the Southeast did
not properly clean endo-
scopic equipment between
patients. On Friday, the VA
revealed that another pa-
tient had tested positive for
HIV bringing the total to
four such cases among pa-
tients who got endoscope
procedures at hospitals in
Miami, Murfreesboro,
Tenn., andAugusta, Ga.
The agency also said a
new hepatitis case had been
discovered, increasing the
number of positive tests to
26. More than 4,270 veterans
still have yet to get test re-
Beyond those skimpy
facts, the VA has said little
else, citing an ongoing in-
It hasn't answered ques-
tions from The Associated
Press about why problems
with cleaning the equip-
ment - and possibly co-
mingling infectious body
fluids - went on for five
years at the Miami and
Murfreesboro hospitals and
about a year in Augusta.
The VA also refuses to say if
it found similar problems at
its other 150 hospitals or if
more patients should get
blood tests.
The VA has stressed that
the positive tests are "not
necessarily linked" to med-
ical treatment at its hospi-
tals, and infections don't
always cause symptoms and
can go undetected for years.
Still, veterans are calling
on the agency to release
more information.
"This effort must involve
continual updates on what
the VA is learning about the
extent of this situation,"
Vietnam Veterans of Amer-
ica President John Rowan
said in a statement Thurs-
More facts are little com-
fort, though, to those who
are already infected - and
those that don't know.

eran who had a

tal last year got an unimag-
inable phone call recently

The Alvin C. York Campus of the Veterans Affairs Depart-
ment in Murfreesboro, Tenn., is seen Thursday. The VA first
shocked veterans when it warned thousands of its patients
to get blood tests for HIV and hepatitis because they might
have been treated with dirty equipment at facilities in-
cluding the one in Murfreesboro.

now, the Tennessee man
doesn't know what to think
"I screamed out loud,
'No' and wentover and held
my wife and told her what
happened," said the vet-
eran, who spoke.to The As-
sociated Press on the
condition of anonymity be-
cause he was afraid of
repercussions against him-
self and his employer. "We
had a nice, good cry. The
things that go through your
mind. You think your whole
world is going to end. Her
world could end, too."
It was not clear whether
the Tennessee man was
counted as a positive HIV
test by the VA.
The VA said the problems
with the endoscopic equip-
ment had gone on for years,
but were discovered in De-
cember when it learned the
Murfreesboro facility was-
n't following cleaning pro-
cedures the manufacturer
recommended. It issued an
internal alert for hospitals
to check their procedures,
and the problem at Augusta
was discovered in January.
On Feb. 9, the VA an-
nounced a nationwide
safety check of endoscopic
equipment used in colono-
scopies and ear, nose and
throat treatments. The pro-
cedure involves a narrow,
flexible tube fitted with a
fiber-optic device such as a
telescope or magnifying
lens that is inserted into the

warned in February to get
tested, and more were
alerted in March when the

that it didn't have a prob-
The day after the first
HIV infection became pub-
lic April 6, the VA an-
nounced that its top
medical official, Dr.

reached for comment. VA
spokeswoman Katie
Roberts said there was "no

American Inc., and the

ommended cleaning proce-
dures are clear.
The VA and its inspector
general have started inves-
tigations, and congressional
members of the Veterans
Affairs Committee have
asked for a hearing in late
May to discuss how the VA
has been handling the prob-
U.S. Rep. Steve Buyer, R-
Ind. and ranking member of
the committee, said in a
statement he and his staff
have been briefed weekly
by senior VA officials. His
office declined to release
more information.
Private hospitals have
also spread infectious dis-
eases with unsterile equip-
ment, but requirements to
report such problems vary
by state and there's no na-
tional regulation requiring
disclosure, according to
Barbara Rudolph, director
of The Leapfrog Group,
which advocates for quality
health care.
The VA is providing a hot
line for veterans and their
families and posts the infor-
mation it is releasing on its
Web site. Because the VA
hasn't ruled out other hos-
pitals having had problems,
some veterans are wonder-
ing if its more widespread.
In Cedar Rapids, Iowa,
former Marine Allen Lusk
had several colonoscopies
at the VA hospital in Iowa
City and tested positive for
hepatitis B in December.
"I never had it till I
started going to the VA,"
said Lusk, 51.
He started using the VA
in 2006 after he was injured
when a car fell on him and
he didn't have health insur-
ance. After seeing news re-
ports about the
contaminated equipment
problems elsewhere, Lusk
went to his county health
department for an HIV test
He tested negative.

Little stress

in 'stress tests'

Associated Press

NEW YORK - Investors
set aside some of their wor-
ries about banks and the
economy Friday after the
government unveiled its
methods for testing the
health of banks.
The Federal Reserve re-
port was light on details, but
didn't bring any bad news.
Investors were also pleased
about quarterly results from
Ford Motor Co., American
Express Co. and Microsoft
Those developments
cleared the way fbr a 119-
point gain in the Dow Jones
industrial average, leaving
it down slightly for the
week The Dow and the S&P
500 broke their six-week
winning streak, but the Nas-
daq extended its string of
weekly gains to seven.
' The Fed, in outlining the
tests' methodology, said the
19 companies that hold one-
half of the loans in the U.S.
banking system won't be al-
lowed to fail - even if they
fared poorly on the stress
Separately, bank execu-

"There are no major
shocks in here. That's why
the market's holding up
well," said Scott Fullman,
director of derivatives in-
vestment strategy for WJB
Capital Group. "It's been
hanging over the market for
the last few days."
The day was not without
volatility, however. After the
Fed's release, the stock mar-
ket at times gave up huge

ward reaching deals before the
Thursday deadline, according
to a dealer who listened to the
call. The dealer requested
anonymity because the call
was private.

Honeywell 1Q falls

38 percent

well International Inc.'s quar-
terly profit dropped 38 percent
as battered aircraft and au-
tomakers pulled back spending
on the company's turbo charg-
ers and jet electronics. Honey-
well also cut its profit forecast,
saying it underestimated the
severity of the economic down-

office supplies, prompting the
company to lower its 2009 out-
look again.
Weak demand by U.S. cus-

Madoff investors to

return false profits

NEW YORK - The trustee
trying to unravel Bernard Mad-
off's massive Ponzi scheme is
threatening legal action to re-
cover $735 million from in-
vestors who unwittingly m2de
money off the swindle.
For decades, Madoff paid out
steady profits to his clients,
telling them the money had
been earned in the stock mar-
ket. The gains, though, were
fictitious, and Madoff pleaded
guilty last month to stes!ng
funds from some investors to
pay bogus profits to others.

Ford posts $1.4B 1Q Volvo earnings weak

loss, uses less cash

DEARBORN, Mich. - Ford
Motor Co. reported a first-quar-
ter loss of $1.4 billion Friday
and said it depleted less of its
cash, emphasizing that it does-
n't expect to seek any of the
government assistance that is
keeping the rest of the Detroit
Three alive.
The nation's second-largest
automaker said it spent $3.7
billion more than it took in dur-
ing the first three months of the
year, far less than the $7.2 bil-
lion it spent in the fourth quarter
of 2008.
Chief Financial Officer Lewis
Booth said the company is con-
fident that it will slow the drain
on its cash even further this
year, and he said Ford will
make it through 2009 without
needing government aid. He
would not speculate, however,
about 2010.

Treasury lends

$2B more to GM

WASHINGTON - Taxpayers
invested another $2 billion in
General Motors Corp. this week
as the struggling auto giant
continued efforts to restructure
and avoid bankruptcy court.
The Treasury Department
said Friday it lent the additional
money to GM on Wednesday to
provide working capital. The
loan pushes the total amount of
GM's government aid to $15.4
billion after the company said it
would need more money in the
second quarter to stay afloat.

Associated Pregt
Volvo Chief Executive Leif Johansson speaks Friday during d
news conference in Gothenburg. Johansson called it a "his-

Friday posted a worse-than-expected first-quarter net loss of

demand in its markets, which it expects to continue to
shrink due to the global financial turmoil.

to the tenacious efforts of Sen.

The loophole quickly be-
came a lucrative gaming of the
state pension system, with
elected officials and public
employees retiring for a month
to trigger a substantial lump
sum DROP payment and then
returning to their public jobs to
collect both a state pension
and salary.
With the gaming exploding to
where some 225 elected offi-

Fasano and Rep. Hill intro-
duced bills in their respective
chambers during the previous
and current legislative ses-
sions to end this legalized scam
of the state retirement system.
Despite past promises by
lawmakers to close the loop-
hole, last year's effort failed,
and this year's effort appeared
doomed. Arguing it would hurt
lower-paid employees who re-
tire and return to their old jobs
to boost their retirement in-

to table Sen. Fasano's bill.

A question for the county

Dick," in today's
paper's headlines (April 0I

denies any wrongdoing,
why did the county pay
anything and not go to
court and win the case?
It would have cost the
taxpayers nothing. I bet
it was because they CAL
knew full well they were
wrong. Now let's see
what our county com-
missioners have cost us
lately - Fisher, for one thing,
Tony, and now Dick. It all adds
up ... and if Tom Dick wasn't
the person he is, he could have
easily gone to court and got a
lot more than he did in this
mere settlement. Remember,

I'm calling the Chronicle in ref-
erence to your article today on
S (April 14) about the DUI
UNLD driver who got 10 years
Probation. It's ludicrous.
That's why so many other
people drive. Point is, you
give DUIs mandatory jail
time, no plea bargain, pe-
riod. Jail time-that's
the only way to stop it.
S Another life lost because
of a DUI.
0579 Crooked politics
Here we go again.
Seems like d6ja vu. Instead of
Chicago, it's in Florida. The situa-
tion with Sansom - isn't it amaz-
ing? Another crooked politician
who says, "I will be vindicated at
trial." I'm so sick of listening to
all these crooked politicians. Put
them in jail where they belong. I
am sick and tired of it and I'm
sure many other people are, too.
And pretty soon we're going to do
something about it.

Reality si,

President Obama actually
thinks he should talk to the
leaders of a nation only 90
miles from Florida. He also
thinks that American citizens
who emigrated from Cuba should
be able to visit their homeland
and send money to their rela-
tives. Score one for rationality
and common sense.
For decades, American policy
toward Cuba has been
frozen in time, dic-
tated by a small but
fervent band of exiles
who demanded that
Washington take the
hardest possible line ' -
against Havana. No ,
talk, no trade, no
travel. Nada.
The policy was
straight out of a fairy Cokie
tale. Close your eyes, Steven

Think how truly crazy that ap-
proach really was. President
Nixon went to China-37 years ago.
President Reagan traveled to
Moscow and saw the "Evil Em-
pire" for himself in 1988. Only
Cuba was off-limits, only Fidel
Castro was a nonperson.
The policy persisted for only
one reason. Cuban exiles clus-
tered in South Florida could
command total loyalty from Re-
publican presidents on the one
issue they cared about. Bill Clin-
ton wanted to improve ties to
Cuba, but his efforts ended in
1996 after Castro's forces shot
down two planes searching for
rafters fleeing the island.
Obama knew the Republicans
were on the wrong side of history
and campaigned for a change in
Cuba policy Now he has taken a few
small steps in that direction. Exiles
will be able to travel more freely,
and send money and humanitarian
aid more easily Telecommunica-
tions companies would be free to
seek business in Cuba as well.

Better hours
Well, here we go again. Offices
of Citrus County not doing any-
thing about complaints.
About 4:15 p.m. today, I see a
man walking a dog on my street.
This dog is not leashed and is
going on other people's property
to do its business.
I go outside and excuse myself
and I ask the man to put his dog
on a leash. The man shakes a
plastic bag at me then turns
around, facing away from me.
I call Animal Control and they
tell me that they can't do any-
thing right now because they're
getting ready to go home at 5
p.m. They may be out tomorrow.
Well, tomorrow is Saturday; they
don't work on weekends, either.
This is all you get from a lot of
Citrus County offices: nothing.
You call because someone is
breaking the law and nothing is
ever done. When somebody calls
to try to get something done, the
county comes down on you with
everything they have and the
person breaking the law gets
away with nothing, only "we'll
talk to them."

Thanks to Hospice
On behalf of the Citrus County
Veterans Coalitior, I would like
to thank Hernando-Pasco Hos-
pice of Citrus County for the in-
tervention of care and
equipment supplied to Mrs.
Phyllis Lebert. She was the
widow of Robert Lebert, a World
War II veteran and a client of the
Veterans Coalition food pantry.
Yours truly dearly loved Mrs.
Lebert, and I appreciate knowing
that this organization of care-
givers was genuine and caring for
this dear lady
My wife contacted other home
health organizations, and after
interviewing each of them, con-
tacted (Hernando-Pasco Hos-
pice). The care and concern
during the time Mrs. Lebert was
under their care at her home
and later at the hospice facility,
was notable and gratefully ac-
knowledged by the family.
Again, the care provided was
very nice and accepted with
gratitude. Thank you for a great
caring attitude.

Justice needed
I can't help but wonder how many
William Thorntons are out there -
good people, and sometimes juve-
niles, as in William's case - who
have been handed long prison sen-
tences.by an out-of-touch judge and
a judicial system run amok
One such person happens to be
William Thornton's father, Michael
Thornton. He was also given a 30-year
sentence five years ago by Judge Ric
Howard, the same judge who sent
William to prison. Michael was con-
victed for an alleged minor theft The
Thorntons do not have the resources
to hire an attorney, and they were not
well served by the state-appointed de-
fense. Fortunately for William, after 3
1/2 years of the 30-year sentence im-
posed by Judge Howard, a concerned
Tampa attorney took on his case pro
bono and was able to get Howard off
of it by subpoenaing the judge as a
6 witness. At William's new hearing, the
truth surfaced about how shoddily the
trial was handled by the judge, prose-
cuting attorney and the two public de-
fenders. As a result, William was
freed following a second hearing and
is currently out on probation, all
felony charges dropped.
I'm sure many other people accused
of nonviolent and/or minor crimes are
locked up for long periods of time,
most of whom not possessing the re- .
sources to properly defendcthemselves.

As for Michael Thornton, I hope a pro
bono attorney will come forward to help
him so he can rejoin his family soon.

Energy outrage,
While rustling through the Florida
Constitution, I came across this little
gem: The Florida Legislature will
not enact any statute granting a priv-
ilege to a private corporation. (Arti-
cle 3, Section 11, Sub-section 12.)
Upon reading the statute enacted
by the Florida Legislature in 2007,
(Florida Statute 366.93) I find that
many privileges are granted to
Progress Energy of Florida, a pri-
vate corporation. The right granting
them the privilege of demanding
that the customers using their elec-
tric energy are required to pay the
construction costs of a nuclear
power plant by adding a monthly
charge onto our power bill is one of
the most blatantly and unfair sec-
tions. They have exercised that right
and began mandatory collection ex-
ceeding $44,000,000 since Jan 1.
Another section permits them to
collect this money with no accounting
to the users, gives the users no rights
to demand payment in stock or trans-
fer warrants, the money will not be
placed into a trust account and this
money will not revert back to us in the
event that the plant is never built It

even grants Progress the right to
charge the users any costs relative to
the retirement and dismantling of any
other power plant on their system.
I am furious over this betrayal of
our elected politicians to give away
our hard-earned money to a wealthy
private corporation and disgrace our
Constitution so blatantly. The stock-
holders and bondholders of Progress

I have written each state senator
asking them to please repeal this un-
fair statute. The only response from
that effort was a form letter telling
me they are much too busy to read
their mail. A letter to the governor re-
questing information was never per-
sonally answered. Conversations with
Rep. Cretul and Sen. Mike Fasano re-
sulted in no action or positive re-
sponse. There is too much evidence
of influence being taken by our
elected officials. During these days of
bad economic news, the American
people are'being dismantled of their
livelihood and constitutional guaran-

When the average Floridian is strug-

Someone needs to ask

Eduardo Manuitt, a former

.Manuitt broke with Chavez
last year, after the presi-

nance officials from the

Meeting three weeks after
an economic summit of
world leaders in London,
the finance ministers did
not put forward any sweep-
ing new proposals but
stressed the need for indi-

through on commitments.
Treasury Secretary Timo-

terparts from the world's

joint statement to provide
the necessary fiscal tonic -

before the global economy
can rebound.
"We are committed to act
together to restore jobs and
growth and to prevent a cri-

occurring again," the fi-
nance officials said. "We
will take whatever actions
are necessary" to bring that
about, they said.

The task at hand is for in-

their pledges and for finan-

pressure on each other so
that momentum is not lost.

Swine flu deaths spur global epidemic fears

More than l 1,00people in Merico sickened

Associated Press

MEXICO CITY - A unique strain
of swine flu is the suspected killer of
dozens of people in Mexico, where
authorities closed schools, museums,
libraries and theaters in the'capital
on Friday to try to contain an out-
break that has spurred concerns of a
global flu epidemic.
The worrisome new virus - which
combines genetic material from pigs,
birds and humans in a way re-
searchers have not seen before -
also sickened at least eight people in
Texas and California, though there
have been no deaths in the U.S.
S"We are very, very concerned,"

World Health Organization
spokesman Thomas Abraham said.
"We have what appears to be a novel
virus and it has spread from human
to human... It's all hands on deck at
the moment"
The outbreak caused alarm in
Mexico, where more than 1,000 peo-
ple have been sickened. Residents of
the capital donned surgical masks
-and authorities ordered the most
sweeping shutdown of public gather-
ing places in a quarter century. Pres-
ident Felipe Calderon met with his
Cabinet Friday to coordinate Mex-
ico's response.
The WHO was convening an expert
panel to consider whether to raise

the pandemic alert level or issue
travel advisories.
It might already be too late to con-
tain the outbreak, a prominent U.S.
pandemic flu expert said late Friday.
Given how quickly flu can spread
around the globe, if these are the first
signs of a pandemic, then there are
probably cases incubating around the
world already, said Dr Michael Os-
terholm at the University of Min-
In Mexico City, "literally hundreds
and thousands of travelers come in
and out every day," Osterholm said.
"You'd have to believe there's been
more unrecognized transmission
that's occurred."
There is no vaccine that specifi-
cally protects against swine flu, and it
was unclear how much protection

current human flu vaccines might
offer A "seed stock" genetically
matched to the new swine flu virus
has been created by the U.S. Centers
for Disease Control, said Dr Richard
Besser, the agency's acting director If
the government decides vaccine pro-
duction is necessary, manufacturers
would need that stock to get started.
Authorities in Mexico urged peo-
ple to avoid hospitals unless they had
a medical emergency, since hospitals
are centers of infection. They also
said Mexicans should refrain from
customary greetings such as shaking
hands or kissing cheeks. At Mexico
City's international airport, passen-
gers were questioned to try to pre-
vent anyone with flu symptoms from
boarding airplanes and spreading
the disease.

Picks and trades: Let the
intrigue sunounding
the NFL draft begin
Associated Press
NEW YORK - Let's forget, for now, who
will wind up in Detroit as the top pick in
Saturday's NFL draft. And what team will
get star receiver Michael Crabtree. And
where the six offensive tackles likely to go
in the first round will land.

Sure, the draft is all about grabbing new
talent, plugging holes or beefing up a pro
team's depth. It's also about the intrigue be-
yond the actual selections.
Such as the trades and the trends.
Will Cleveland deal Braylon Edwards to
the Giants or the Eagles or the Titans or an-
other receiver-needy club? Don't expect
any hints coming out of Browns camp,
where new coach Eric Mangini is more se-
cretive than the CIA.
How about the Cardinals, tired of dealing
with Anquan Boldin's contract demands,
sending him to one of those teams?
"I didn't say a trade was necessary,"
Boldin has said. "I just want something to

get resolved. It's something
that's gone on long enough."
Both wideouts would carry a hefty
price. including at least a first-round se-
lection Saturday.
What about Julius Peppers? Carolina
franchised the standout defensive end and
would get two first-rounders as compen-
sation if anyone signs him. But the Pan-
thers likely would settle for less in a
trade, albeit not less than at least one

Tony Gonzalez, left, and Atlanta head coach Mike Smith listen to-questions from the media
during a press conference in which the Falcons announced the acquisition of Gonzalez in a
trade with the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday. In exchange for the record-breaking NFL tight
end, the Falcons gave the Chiefs their second round selection in the 2010 NFL football draft.

The bird is the word


dealfor TE


Associated Press

ATLANTA - Tony Gonza-
lez announced his Super goal
on his first full day as a mem-
ber of the Atlanta Falcons.
"I'm here for one reason,
and that's to win the Super
Bowl," the All-Pro tight end
said Friday. "I haven't won a
playoff game in my whole
career. I want to come here,
go to the playoffs and win
playoff games. I want to go
to the Super Bowl and win
the Super Bowl."
Acquired in a trade Thurs-
day from Kansas City, Gonza-
lez reiterated that he will
always keep the Chiefs first
in his heart, but the five-time
All-Pro quickly acknowl-
edged that Atlanta offered
him a better chance to com-
pete for a championship.
"The feeling is mutual,"
Gonzalez said. "Kansas City
is where I grew up. I'd just
turned 21 when I got there.
The last 12 years, it's just
been great I'm going to miss

it, but I'm looking forward to
being a part of what's hap-
pening here."
Atlanta, which last year
had a rookie quarterback in
Matt Ryan, a first-time head
coach in Mike Smith and a
first-time general manager
in Thomas Dimitroff, is
coming off an 11-6 season
that ended with a wild-card
loss at Arizona.
Meanwhile, Kansas City
finished 2-14, lost founding
owner Lamar Hunt to can-
cer, accepted the abrupt res-
ignation of longtime GM
Carl Peterson and fired
coach Herman Edwards.
Todd Haley, the new
Chiefs coach whom Gonza-
lez never played for, called
last weekend while the tight
end was vacationing with
his wife in New York City.
Haley was relaying the mes-
sage from new general man-
ager Scott Pioli, once
Dimitroff's boss, that the
Falcons had agreed to trade
Kansas City a 2010 second-
round pick
For Gonzalez, the time
was right to move.
Nearly everything went
Atlanta's way last year after
a 2007 disaster that in-
cluded the federal impris-
onment of quarterback

Michael Vick and the sud-
den resignation of first-year
coach Bobby Petrino with
three games remaining.
Dimitroff signed Michael
Turner to a lavish contract,
and the former San Diego
backup finished second in
the NFL in rushing. Re-
ceiver Roddy White earned
his first Pro Bowl selection,
and defensive end John
Abraham his fourth.
Smith's staff helped nur-
ture Ryan, the No. 3 overall
draft, to become the NFEs
offensive rookie of the year.
After the trade for Gonzalez
was completed Thursday,
Smith called Ryan and
asked him to call his new
"We've traded messages,
but we haven't spoken yet,"
Gonzalez said. "We will really
soon, I'm sure. I can't wait to
meet my new teammates."
On the field, Gonzalez's
production and durability
are impressive. Yes, his 96
receptions covered 1,058
yards and 10 touchdowns
last year. And he's the
league's career leader
among tight ends with 916
catches, 10,940 yards receiv-
ing, 76 TDs receiving and 26
games of at least 100 yards

Detroit coach Michael
Curry said the Pistons
needed both Rasheed Wal-
lace and Tayshaun Prince to
play well to have a chance to
win, and neither did.

Cardinals 4, Cubs 3
ST. LOUIS -Albert Pujols
used his legs rather than his big
bat to help the St. Louis Cardinals
beat the Chicago Cubs, stealing
second after a base hit and scor-
ing the go-ahead run in the eighth
inning for a 4-3 victory Friday
Kyle McClellan (1-0) allowed a
hit in' the eighth and Ryan
Franklin worked around a two-out
walk to pinch hitter Milton Bradley
in the ninth for his fifth save in five
chances as St. Louis won its
eighth in a row at home. The
opener of a three-game series
against their NL Central rival at-
tracted a sellout crowd of 45,812,
only the second of the season.
The Cubs'Alfonso Soriano
batted third for the first time since
May 2007 and extended his hit-
ting streak to 11 games with a
double to start the eighth.
Cubs manager Lou Piniella's
lineup shakeup following a pair of
games in which the Cubs totaled
one run wasn't a huge success,
although Mike Fontenot and
Reed Johnson each drove in a
run during a three-run seventh.

off Boston Red Sox pitcher Hideki Okajima in the seventh
inning Friday at Fenway Park In Boston. The Yankees and
Red Sox were tied 4-4 in the 10th Inning at press time.

Selig: Yanks, Mets to
discuss ticket situation
NEW YORK - Bud Selig
has noticed those empty seats
at the new ballparks in New
York, too. Should the Yankees
and Mets lower their tickets
prices? The commissioner said
that's up to them.
-- Selig said Thursday the
teams will discuss the ticket sit-
uation. The Yankees declined
comment, and the Mets said
they weren't thinking about
making changes.
Speaking to the Associated
Press Sports Editors, Selig said
it was not an issue for Major
League Baseball to decide, and
added he wouldn't make any
'They're going to discuss it,
and whatever adjustments they
want to make, they should
make," Selig said. "I wouldn't be
presumptuous talking about what
they should or shouldn't do."
The Yankees are charging
$500-$2,625 for Legends Suite
tickets in 25 sections at the new
Yankee Stadium in the first nine
rows around the infield, an area
that contains 1,8.95 seats.
While those seats were filled
for the April 16 opener, they
were more than half-empty for

Braves 4, Reds 3
coeur hit a solo homer for one
of Atlanta's four hits, and the
Braves took advantage of the
wildest performance in Edinson
Volquez's career Friday night,
walking their way to a 4-3 vic-
tory over the Cincinnati Reds.
Javier Vazquez (2-1) went six
innings for the slumping Braves,
who had lost seven of nine
heading into the weekend se-
ries. They emerged from their
rut with a lot of help from
Volquez (2-2), who gave up only
one hit in five innings - Fran-
coeur's homer - but couldn't
throw a strike when he needed.
The right-hander has strug-
gled with his control since
spring training, and reached a
new low against Atlanta. He
walked a career-high seven
batters and hit another in only
five innings, helping the Braves
pull ahead 3-2.
The crowd booed last year's
All-Star as he walked the bases
loaded with two outs in the fourth.

the remaining five games on
the hornestand. Some entire
sections were unfilled, but it's
possible tickets for other seats
were bought by people who
didn't attend or spent much
time in the three exclusive
restaurants and lounges.
The Mets have fewer pre-
miurr seats near home plate
and far lower prices. They are
charging an average of $175-
$495 for 1,567 seats in the
Delta Club, which includes 20
rows between the dugouts.
"Hal Steinbrenner did say a
couple of weeks ago that he
thought that, you know, they
may have overpriced tickets
and they'll look at it. Well, good
for him," Selig said of the Yan-
kees managing general partner.
"And I know the Wilpons.
They're very sensitive about all
this," he added of the family
that owns the Mets.
Yankees spokeswoman Alice
McGillion wouldn't discuss
Selig's remarks, saying: "We're

Mets spokesman David
Newman said his team wouldn't
revisit what it is charging.
"Ticket prices start at $11. In-

Citi Field is strong."

HOUSTON - Yovani Gal-
lardo pitched his first career
complete game, Prince Fielder
drove in the go-ahead run in a
four-run fifth inning and the Mil-
waukee Brewers won their third
straight game, 5-2 over the
Houston Astros on Friday night.
Gallardo (2-1) gave up a two-
run homer to Carlos Lee in the
fourth inning, but the Brewers
offense gave him all the runs
he needed. Gallardo allowed
five hits and surpassed his pre-
vious longest start, eight in-
nings against Houston in 2007.
Gallardo was still bewildering

homer off George Sherrill in the
ninth inning, giving the Texas

Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins throws out a
Florida Marlin during the second inning Friday in Miami.

Phillies 7, Marlins 3
MIAMI - Shane Victorino hit
his first career grand slam to
highlight a seven-run rally in the
ninth inning against closer Matt
Lindstrom, and the Philadelphia
Phillies beat the Florida Marlins
7-3 on Friday night.
The Marlins took a three-hit-
ter into the ninth and were two
outs from a 3-0 victory when
pinch hitter Matt Stairs singled
home the Phillies' first run. Lind-
strom walked in a run before
Victorino hit his second homer
of the year on a 2-1 pitch.
Five pitches later, Chase
Utley hit his fifth homer.
The rally cost Florida's Josh
Johnson a victory. He allowed
three hits in seven innings,
struck out eight and lowered his
ERA to 2.20.
The Marlins still own the best
record in the NLat 11-5, but
they have lost four games in a
row and fell to 8-1 when they
score first.

Gordon's ailing back still bothering him

Driver still plans

on chasing Sprint

Cup crown in '09
Associated Press

TALLADEGA, Ala. - Jeff Gor-
don will chase his fifth Sprint Cup
title with a bad back
Gordon expects to drive with
some discomfort this season and
the pain he felt last week at
Phoenix International Raceway
has not entirely subsided. The
four-time Cup champ said the
tracks in Richmond, Va.; Mar-
tinsville, Va.; Bristol, Tenn.; and
the road courses could affect him
later this year.
The short tracks would affect

Gordon the most because they tend
to be more physically grueling.
"I'm getting stronger and I don't
expect it to happen overnight and
go away," Gordon said Friday at
Talladega Superspeedway
"It's going to take time."
The aches, pains and spasms
haven't affected Gordon's per-
formance. He snapped a 47-race
winless streak at Texas, has six
top-10 finishes and holds an 85-
point lead over Hendrick Motor-
sports teammate Jimmie Johnson
in the Sprint Cup standings.
Gordon said his creaky back
made it difficult to communicate
with his team last week, and he
couldn't really give crew chief
Steve Letarte information and
feedback He refused to use his
health as an excuse for a poor per-
formance at Phoenix.
A mistake by his pit crew, he was

forced back into the pits for leav-
ing pit row without a lug nut on his
left front, helped drop him to a
season-worst 25th place finish.
"We had some trouble there," he
said. "All the way around, it
seemed like we underperformed
and it's a good wake-up call for us."
Gordon, Johnson and Mark Mar-
tin have won the last three Cup
races for Hendrick Motorsports.
Dale Earnhardt Jr., the fourth
Hendrick driver, has yet to win this
year but has five career Cup wins
at Talladega Superspeedway. Gor-
don also has six wins at Talladega.
"I think there is a great oppor-
tunity for a Hendrick car to win
again this weekend and keep that
streak alive," Gordon said; "I think
on a personal note for Rick (Hen-
drick), I think the ultimate would
be for Junior to win this weekend
and have four different drivers
win four straight races."

UT women excel

at Penn Relays

Associated Press
Sarah Bowman's speedy
anchor leg led Tennessee
to a world record in a sel-
dom-run event Friday,
moving the Lady Vols
within a victory of a rare
Penn Relays triple.
Bowman rallied from
fourth place with a blister-
ing time of 4 minutes, 10.2
seconds on the last leg, and
the Vols won the 6,000-
meter relay in 17:08.34,
besting the previous mark
of 17:09.75, set by Australia
in London nine.years ago.
Now, Tennessee, which
won the distance medley
Thursday, will attempt to
become the sixth women's
team in the 115-year history
of the meet to win the three
major distance relays on
Saturday in the 1,600 relay.
Tennessee didn't find out
it set a world record until
after leaving Franklin
Field on the University of
Pennsylvania campus.
"When you' find 'some-
thing like this out, it just
makes the win all that
r'lhich sweeter," Bowman
said. "You race just to
compete and you can't
concern yourself with
records, but after the race
is completed all those
other accolades make it
that much more special."
Tennessee head coach JJ
Clark tried to put the

record performance in an
event run primarily at
relay meets in the U.S. into
"It's always a good thing
when you accomplish
something that no one else
ever has," Clark said.
"Every time you set a
record, you have accom-
plished something. But to
set a record that a country
held, we broke a record set
by Australia, that's some-
thing to really be proud of.
It's never been done before.
"It's not an event that's
run a lot, but it is (a part of
the Penn Relays), so, of
course, you want to do as
well as you can." *
Bowman, who anchored
three second-place fin-
ishes at last year's Relays,
took the baton from
Rolanda Bell in fourth
place and moved into sec-
,ond on the third lap. She
squared off against George-
town's Maggie Infield for
the second straight day,
taking the lead for .good
just before the final turn.
Bowman held off the
Georgetown anchor on the.
final leg of- Thursday's'
DMR for the Vols' first win.
"I don't mean to sound
cocky, but as soon as she
took the baton I knew we
had it won," Clark said.
"These other three girls
did a great job. They kept
Sarah in position to do
what she had to do."

Tennessee's Sarah Bowman charges down the back stretch
to finish first Friday in the College Women's 4x1500 meter

Singing sensation gets dye job, makeover .

Associated Press
LONDON - The economy is
scary, jobs are disappearing and
taxes are going up. But Britain is
buzzing over something else -
Susan Boyle's new hairdo.
Some say the overnight singing
sensation who rocketed to fame
after a phenomenal performance
on "Britain's Got Talent" has every
right to upgrade her dowdy appear-
ance. Others fear she may lose her
authenticity - and her amazing
connection with the TV audience -
if she goes too far in the image
makeover department.
The change is startling. Gone is
the fusty woman with graying, frizzy
hair and a jowly face who joked on
air that she had never been kissed,
replaced by a stylish, freshly-coiffed
la'dy in fashionable leather jacket
and what looks to be a Burberry
scarf. The dark, unkempt eyebrows
have been shaped and colored.
""MIAM""~MMMM a~ItriE""!~,- (.EW5WE MERAMMA

Fashion experts say she's taken
years off her looks, but should think
twice about making more improve-
ments, particularly if they go be-
yond styling and involve artificial
"She looks 10 years younger," said
Toni Jones, assistant fashion editor
at The Sun tabloid newspaper,
which featured the new look Boyle
on its cover Friday.
"Compared to what she had, it's a
200 percent improvement. But our
readers think this is as far as she
should go. We want her to stay one
of us."
Jones said Boyle's decision to dye
her hair brown was causing some
consternation among the powers-
that-be at "Britain's Got Talent" by
stoking fears that she may no longer
seem real.
"It's got massive implications for
her because the people above her
want her to look ordinary," said
Jones, who praised Boyle for spend-

ing 35 pounds ($51) at a salon near
her home in Scotland rather than
trekking to London for a 200 pound
($295) cut at a celebrity salon.
Jones said she was amazed at the
interest generated by Boyle's new
do and warned the singer against
going too far by adding, for exam-
ple, the hair extensions and fake
tans favored by England's WAGs, as
the pampered wives and girlfriends
of Britain's elite professional ath-
letes are known.
Max Clifford, Britain's most
prominent publicist, said the
makeover was risky because it
could jeopardize the singer's emo-
tional connection to her audience.

Susan Boyle, whose performance
on television show "Britain's Got Tal-
ent" sparked global Interest, re-
veales a new look Friday outside her
home In Blackburn, Scotland.

Grace and Wilbur Thrush, better known as Aunt Grace and Uncle Wilbur, have special programs lined up for children of all ages in their Children's
Gospel Puppet Revival.

Children's Gospel Puppet Revival entertains, shares message with all ages

Seven the most jaded and sophisticated
5-year-old can't resist "Aunt" Grace
Thrush's fiery Bible.
During a children's revival crusade, which
she conducts with her husband, "Uncle"
Wilbur, she pulls out a Bible, and as she says;
"God's Word is powerful and it's for children
of all ages," she opens it - and it bursts into
When she closes it, the fire goes out - and
the pages don't get burned.
It's been a crowd pleaser for decades.
She also sets a handkerchief on fire, which
doesn't burn, either.
Beginning Sunday, Aunt Grace and Uncle
Wilbur Thrush will present their Children's
Gospel Puppet Revival, hosted by Calvary
Chapel of Inverness (formerly Vineyard
Christian Fellowship). Services are 10 a.m.
and 7 p.m. Sunday and 7 p.m. Monday, Tues-
day and Wednesday in the church sanctuary
at 960 S. U.S. 41, Inverness. For information,
call 726-1480.
With their old-fashioned puppets, flannel
board visual aids and stories, the couple has
been ministering to children (of all ages) for
45 years as state evangelists, licensed by the
Church of God.
Although kids have changed, their simple
stories and low-tech style of presenting time-
less truth haven't.
"I have a wand that instantly appears,"
Grace said recently as she and Wilbur and
their assistant, Dave Schirmer, practiced for
the upcoming crusade. "I have six visual sto-
ries, and as I'm telling a story, I'm setting up
a visual aid."
Wilbur, 76, mostly stays behind the scenes,
working the puppets. Grace, 74, is the "front
man," along with Schirmer.
"I still play 32 cowbells, but I'm not too
good at it anymore - I'm getting old in my
hands," Grace said.
"When we first started, we carried rabbits
and doves with us, and a skunk," Wilbur
said, "but not any more. When we first
started, puppets were taboo in (some)
churches. They were seen as evil --black

Tampa. They've been married 55 years.
At one time they traveled the nation, doing
children's crusades. They never advertised,
Grace said. They were often booked two
years in advance.
At the close of each crusade, they choose a
king and a queen who get a crown. On family
night, kids who bring their family members
get to visit the treasure chest filled with
It's all very 1950s - and all very new to
tech-savvy kids used to loud and fast-paced
computerized multi-media.

"It's different than what they're used to,"
Schirmer said. "They've never been exposed
to what Grace does, so it's new for them even
though it's not new."
Schirmer met the Thrushes in 1986 when
they came to a church, in Citrus Springs that
he belonged to prior to marrying his wife.
He had also worked in children's ministry.
After marrying and joining his wife's
church, Inverness Church of God, where the
Thrush's were children's pastors, he volun-
teered as a helper in children's church.
Then he started working behind the stage
with the puppets, and after five years joined
Grace out front telling stories. About four
years ago he started going on the road with
"I saw (Grace's) stories in 1986 and she
hasn't changed anything," he said. "Back
then she'd start a story and the kids would
all sit still and listen. I've noticed now that
it's still the story that grabs their attention.
They still sit and listen, and you can hear a
pin drop, just like it was 22 years ago."
Grace said today's kids generally don't
know the basic Bible stories, such as Jonah
and the great fish or David and Goliath. It's
all new to them.
She also said many of the kids who come
to their crusades are the children of those
they once taught in children's ministry.
"We sometimes have more adults than kids
in our meetings," she said. "They say, 'I re-
member that story from when I was a kid!"'
"There are several pastors in Florida with
their own churches who were saved in our
meetings," Wilbur said.
Grace is the first to say she's amazed at
how God has used her in children's ministry
all these years. Raised by her grandparents
who were quite poor, she moved a lot as a
child, working in the fields to earn money
Consequently, she has barely a grade school
Despite that, she has taught seminars at
her denomination's district level on how to
do children's ministry and in 1992, she and
Wilbur received the first Shepherd's Cup
Award for best children's evangelists in the
United States.
"What I've got comes from the Lord,"
Grace said. "You know someone like me
wouldn't be able to do anything like that un-
less they had the Lord on their side."

eating the HARDwood floor.
Party guests went home
crying while the junior
party hostess, with a fat lip
and a broken permanent
front tooth, cried all the way
to an emergency Saturday
night dental appointment.
She came home with a re-
tainer-like device on her
front teeth to help them
reattach to the bone and a
whole lot of tooth-colored
filling material added to the
broken tooth, which will be
sanded down later to look
more like a tooth and less
like a blob..Plus, she frac-
tured two teeth's roots and
faces a root canal.
Big ouch.
Alison went to school for
dental assisting so she knew
what was going on and that
everything would be OK.
But as a mom, she hurt for
her child. Oh, how well I
know that hurt!
She said sending Caro-
line's friends home was tor-
ture for Caroline who cried,
"But it's my first sleepover!"
Alison said that was tor-
ture for her to hear. It's
never easy to see your child
in any kind of pain, physical
or emotional. When your
baby cries, no matter how
old she may be, that's your
flesh, and when your flesh
cries, you cry, too.
When Caroline was 2 1/2,
her dad, who's in the Army,
left for a six-week training
assignment. As best they
could, my daughter and son-
in-law tried preparing Car-
oline, but how much does a
toddler understand?
One day Alison found
Caroline holding a framed
photo of herself and her
daddy, crying sadly and
softly, and talking to it say-
ing, "airplane" and "Al-
Alison said it was the first
time she had ever known
Caroline to cry from sad-
ness and that made her feel
helpless - and sad, which

others hold similar tenets

shiip w-\ith the Earth and
right relationship with thed
It took time, but ripples
from her address have
grown into waves of debate
about the health of many re-
ligious orders, especially in
light of reports that the Con-
gregation for the Doctrine of
the Faith is supervising a
"doctrinal assessment" of
the Leadership Conference
of Women Religious. The
.question is whether many
sisters have rejected doc-
trines stated in Vatican doc-
uments focusing on the
male priesthood, homosex-
uality and the Catholic
Church's role in the salva-
tion of souls. Cardinal
Joseph Ratzinger - now
Pope Benedict XVI -
played a crucial role in the
development of thes6 docu-
Catholic conservatives
are convinced that Brink
crossed an important line.
"Ifyou're going to be post-
"Christian, then be post-
Christian. I don't say that
with snark. It's just reality,"
argued Catholic blogger
Amy Welborn of Beliefnet.
"If you've moved on - move
on. Step out from the pro-
tective mantle of identity
that gives you cachet, that of
'Catholic nun.'"
However, it's important to
note that this "post-Christ-
ian," "sojourning" strategy
was only the third of four
strategies critiqued by
Brink in the printed text of
her presentation, titled '"A
Marginal Life: Pursuing Ho-
liness in the 21st Century."
Her goal was to urge leaders
of Catholic religious orders
to make clear - if painful
choices - in an age in
which "indecision" is the

proverbial elephant in the
living room.
Sister Laurie began with
this assumption: "Old con-
cepts of how to live the life
are no longer valid."
The first option, she said,
is "death with dignity and
grace," as.opposed to be-
coming a "zombie congrega-
tion" that staggers on with
no purpose. This option
Must be taken seriously

the United States is 69.

houses" are struggling with

made me feel sad.
As a fairly new mom, she
knew what I've known for
quite a while, that we can't
take away our children's
I remember years ago
when my other daughter
called to say her best friend
had moved away and she
was sad. I cried because I
couldn't make her friend
not move away and I could-
n't make her un-sad. No
matter how intense my de-
sire or how tireless my ef-
fort, I couldn't take away
her sadness.
Sometimes we parents
can help ease our child's
pain, but we can never
erase it. When Alison told
me about Caroline's teeth,
she said she wished she
could trade places with her.
Yeah, I thought, I know that
feeling, too.
You would give anything
to bear your child's pain. I
wished that I could bear Al-
ison's pain of wishing she
could bear Caroline's.
It's a reminder that this
world is broken and it hurts.
A lot.
On the other hand, this
feeling of wanting to trade
places is maybe God's way
of reminding us who he is as
an empathetic Father.
Can you imagine his
agony over watching his
Son die on a cross?
God knows our pain. He
has compassion for our suf-
fering. He's not uncaring or
uninterested or untouched
by the things that touch us.
He's right there with us as
we cry..
Yo! Dat's what up,

finances, while some con-
gregations no longer invite
or accept new candidates.
Meanwhile, Brink noted
with sadness, some orders
have chosen to turn back
the clock - thus winning
the favor of Rome. "They
are putting on the habit, or
continuing to wear the habit
with zest.... Some would cri-
tique that they are the nos-
talgic portrait of a time now
passed. But they are flour-
ishing. Young adults are
finding in these communi-
ties a living image of their
romantic view of religious
life. They are entering. And
they are staying," she said.
Finally, some women are
fighting on, hoping to
achieve reconciliation
someday with a changed,
egalitarian church hierar-
chy. Thus, the current con-
flicts in American
Catholicism cannot be hid-
den, she said.
"Theologians are denied
academic freedom. Reli-
gious and laywomen feel
scrutinized simply because
of their biology. Gays and
lesbians desire to partici-
pate as fully human, fully
sexual Catholics within
their parishes," said Brink
Many Catholics also oppose
the ecclesiall deafness that
refuses to hear the call of
the Spirit summoning not
only celibate males, but
married men and women to
serve" as priests.
These religious orders
will strive to recruit new sis-
ters and train them to con-
tinue the struggle against
the "men who control the

power in but not the Spirit
of the church," she said. If
reconciliation occurs, it will
take place in a reformed
Right now, she stressed,
the Catholic hierarchy is
"right to feel alarmed. What
is at stake is the very heart
of the church itself."

Stepping out of the box

Special to the Chronicle
The women of Genesis Community Church met for lunch in February, bringing some new
hope for those in need. Thirteen women met to discuss reaching out to the area's home-
less. The nondenominational church, which meets in the Knights of Columbus Hall on
County Road 486, gathered together everything from Band-Aids to soap, hand warmers and
socks and boxed them up neatly into plastic shoe boxes, 34 in all for the men, women and
children in our area who could use an extra hand. Genesis Community Church services are
at 10 a.m.; 9:30 a.m. for muffins, coffee and fellowship, on Sundays. For more Information,

audience urged

to activism

Special to the Chronicle
On April 11, Public Serv-
ice Commissioner Nancy Ar-
genziano addressed a
bipartisan audience of
about 65 people at the
monthly meeting of the Cen-
tral Citrus Democratic Club.
In her hour-long presenta-
tion, Argenziano said she
was prohibited by law from
addressing the merits of the
recent Progress Energy rate
hike, but explained the func-
tion of the Public Service
Commission and its valuable
role in utility regulation.
In a free-flowing question-
and-answer session, she
cautioned that representa-
tive government, in general,
was under threat from com-
peting agendas and that it
behooved all citizens to be
continually involved in mon-
itoring the legislative pro-
cess. She urged activism
through a varying array of
correspondence to elected
officials, attendance at pub-
lic hearings and ultimately,
the voting booth.

East doesn't gain the lead; other-
wise, he will push a diamond
South plays a club to dummy's
king, then leads a club to his jack
Here, he has 10 top tricks and can
win an 11th by end-playing West.
However, even if West had queen-
doubleton of clubs, the contract
would still be safe.

Dear Annie: My best friend,
"Tammy," is on a self-de-
structive path. She is
bipolar, but rarely
takes her medication,
saying it makes her
feel like a zombie. She
often misses her doc-
tors' appointments.
Tammy has battled
with alcoholism
throughout her life
and has apparently
given up any thought
of staying sober. Many
days she just stays in
bed and drinks. Her ANN
apartment is a mess. MAII
Tammy is a well-ed-
ucated, extremely in-
telligent woman, and when she is
sober and on her meds, she is a
delight to be around. I want to re-
main her friend and help, but it
is getting discouraging. Tammy
has no family willing to step in,


and if she thinks people are try-
ing to boss her around, she be-
comes very angry Any
suggestions? - Con-
fused Eriend.
Dear Confused: Sug-
gest that Tammy talk
to her doctor about
changing or modifying
her medication so she
doesn't feel like a zom-
bie. Then please con-
tact the National
Alliance on Mental Ill-
ness (nami.org) at (800)
950-NAMI (1-800-950-
IE'S 6264) and ask if there

Dear Annie: "Total
Loss" said her wonderful vale-
dictorian son has become ad-
dicted to video games and
behaves irrationally It sounds
more like heroin to me. My son
had an athletic scholarship to

college, but instead, he dropped
out of high school and got his
GED. Why? Drugs! It started off
with weed and moved to pills at
parties and eventually heroin. All
the behavior she described could
have been my son.
She should go online and
check out the warning signs of
heroin use. It is a very popular
drug among high school and col-
lege students. It can happen to
your child no matter what kind of
family you have.'
It took getting caught by the po-
lice to make my son face his prob-
lem. Don't ask your son if he is
using drugs. He will just lie -
they always do. -Voice of Expe-

E-mail your questions to


Your birthday - Investment situations
in general should work out rather well
for you in the year ahead, with one ex-
ception - mixing money and friends.
You could end up broke.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) - Without
meaning to, you could put yourself in
the middle of two warring factions and
end up the target of both.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) - Leaving
important chores to the last minute will
put you in a tizzy and upset your plans
for doing what you want later in the
Cancer (June 21-July 22) - Don't try
to arrange a hard-core business deal in
a social setting; the two won't mix. The
deal will either be weak or unworkable.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) - No one

should have to tell you to keep in-laws,
relatives or even well-meaning friends
out of your private squabbles, but that's
what you might spontaneously do.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Don't turn
a good deed you should be doing out
of the goodness of your heart into a
deal-making episode. You're apt to
make an enemy.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Don't be
the treasurer for an extracurricular ac-
tivity with friends. When you count up
the funds you collect and come up
short, you'll have to make up the differ-
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Don't
discuss issues when you know you and
your mate hold opposing positions.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)- You

had better be sure that your skirts are
clean before finding fault with another.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Don't
build up your hopes about making a fi-
nancial killing when it comes to deal-
ings you're not handling personally.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Unless
you put your priorities in order before
starting your to-do list, little is likely to
be accomplished.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) - There's
a good chance you could rush to judg-
ment based solely upon hearsay infor-
mation and make a big mistake.
Aries (March 21-April 19) - If your
mind isn't on what you're doing when
handling money, it's likely that you'll
make an expensive mistake. Careless-
ness could be your undoing.

Kevin Roose managed to
blend in during his single
semester at Liberty Univer-
sity, attending lectures on
the myth of evolution and
the sin of homosexuality,
and joining fellow students
on a mission trip to evangel-
ize partyers on spring break
Roose had transferred to
the Virginia campus from
Brown University in Provi-
dence, a famously liberal
member of the Ivy League.
His Liberty classmates
knew about the switch, but
he kept something more im-
portant hidden: He planned
to write a book about his ex-
perience at the school
founded by fundamentalist
preacher Jerry Falwell.
Each conversation about
salvation or hand-wringing
debate about premarital sex
was unwitting fodder for
Roose's recently published

aguer 'i

book: "The Unlikely Disci-
ple: A Sinner's Semester at
America's Holiest Univer-
"As a responsible Ameri-
can citizen, I couldn't just ig-
nore the fact that there are
a lot of Christian college stu-
dents out there," said
Roose, 21, now a Brown sen-
ior. "If I wanted my educa-
tion to be well-rounded, I
had to branch out and in-
clude these people that I
just really had no exposure
Formed in 1971, Liberty
now enrolls more than
11,000 residential students,
along with thousands more
who study through Liberty's
distance-learning programs.
The university teaches cre-
ationism and that the Bible
is the inerrant word of God,
while pledging "a strong
commitment to political
conservatism" on campus
and a "total rejection of so-

nfiltrates' Falwell's university

Associated Press
Kevin Roose, Brown Univer-
sity senior and author of "The
Unlikely Disciple," a book
about his semester at Jerry
Falwell's Liberty University,
stands April 8 on the campus
of Brown University in Provi-
dence, R.I.

Roose's parents, liberal
Quakers who once worked
for Ralph Nader, were nerv-
ous about their son being
exposed to Falwell's views.
Still, Roose transferred to
Liberty for the spring. 2007

He was determined to not
mock the school, thinking it
would be too easy - and un-
fair. He aimed to immerse
himself in the culture, ex-
amine what conservative
Christians believe and see if
he could find some common
ground. He had less weighty
questions too: How did they
spend Friday nights? Did
they use Facebook? Did
they go on dates? Did they
watch "Gossip Girl?"
It wasn't an easy transi-
tion. Premarital sex is an
obvious no-no at Liberty. So
are smoking and drinking.
Cursing is also banned, so
he prepared by reading the
Christian self-help book, "30
Days to Taming Your
He lined up a publisher
-Grand Central Publishing
- and arrived at the Lynch-
burg campus prepared for
"hostile ideologues who
spent all their time plotting
abortion clinic protests and

sewing Hillary Clinton
voodoo dolls."
Instead, he found that
"not only are they not that,
but they're rigorously nor-
Roose researched the
school by joining as many
activities as possible. He ac-
companied classmates on a
spring break missionary
trip to Daytona Beach. He
visited a campus support
group for chronic masturba-
tors, where students were
taught to curb impure
thoughts. And he joined the
choir at Falwell's Thomas
Road Baptist Church.
Roose scored an inter-
view with the preacher for
the school newspaper, right
before Falwell died in May
of that year.
Roose decided against
confronting him over his
views on liberals, gays and
other hot-button topics, and
instead learned about the
man himself, discovering

among other things that the
pastor loved diet peach
Snapple and the TV show
Roose said his Liberty ex-
perience transformed him
in surprising ways.
When he first returned to
Brown, he'd be shocked by
the sight of a gay couple
holding hands - then be
shocked at his own reaction.
He remains stridently op-
posed to Falwell's world-
view, but he also came to
understand Falwell's ap-
Once ambivalent about
-faith, Roose now prays to
God regularly - for his own
well-being and on behalf of
others. He said he owns sev-
eral translations of the
Bible and has recently been
rereading meditations from
the letters.of John on using
love and compassion to
solve cultural conflicts.
He's even considering
joining a church.
