that are close to home
for summer outdoor fun.
In Citrus County, that means
families are taking advantage
of city and county swimming
pools as well as beaches.

reasonably priced" depend-
ing on which facility you visit,
said Pati Smith, parks and
recreation director for the
city of Inverness, which has a
junior Olympic-size swim-
ming pool and a separate
water playground.
"They're using them more
often now because of the
economy," she said. "This is
when parks such as Whisper-
ing Pines and all the other
ones need to stay open be-
cause people need it"
Smith said more
than 24.000 vehicles
came into Whispering

Summer sun: Play it safe for your skin


While it's tempting to use the summer
sunshine to build a nice tan, health offi-
cials are urging you to do just the oppo-
site Suntanned skin might look good
when the tan is new, but that tan is actu-
ally just evidence of damaged skin.
Citrus County Health Department
spokeswoman Judith Tear said the two
most important things to remember in the
warm summer months are to
protect your skin in order to
prevent skin damage and can-

cer and to stay hydrated to avoid heat-re-
lated illness.
"People need to understand that tan skin
is damaged skin. You need to use sunscreen
and it needs to be SPF 15 or higher," she
Tear said it's also important to re-apply
sunscreen throughout the day.
"People think if they put it on one time
when they go out, they don't need to reapply
it. Eventually, it does wear off and you need
to keep reapplying."
Indoor tanning beds aren't any healthier,
she said.

ages your skin."

School board issue: A matter of choice

It's not about class size,
teacher pay or budgets.
Thomas Kennedy's candidacy
against two-term incumbent Lou
Miele for Citrus County School
Board hits closer to home.
Kennedy, a building contractor
in his first political race, wants
to serve on the school board be-
cause his children attend public
school and Miele's children do
"As a school board member,
you are making policy. You are
making decisions and you are
representing the public schools,"
Kennedy said. "Therefore, if you
are unwilling to support that by
putting your own children in that

environment, it's difficult 1
to know something as
simple as what it's like to
take the FCAT test"
Miele, whose son and
daughter attend Seven -o

strongly disagreed.
"That's garbage," he Lou

wrong. There are more ways to

only school board campaign on
the ballot, and this one will be

Oil spill's

threat to


turns real

Associated Press
The wildlife apocalypse along the
Gulf Coast that everyone has
feared for weeks is fast becoming
a terrible reality.
Pelicans struggle to free them-
selves from oil, thick as tar, that
gathers in hip-deep pools, while
others stretch out useless wings,

with crude. Dead 1 Related

ashore, coated in
the sludge. Seashells that once
glinted pearly white under the
hot June sun are stained crimson.
Scenes like this played out
along miles of shoreline Satur-
day, nearly seven weeks after a
BP rig exploded and the well-
head a mile below the surface
began belching millions of gal-
lons of oil.
"These waters are my back-
yard, my life," said boat captain
Dave Marino, a firefighter and
fishing guide from Myrtle Grove.
"I don't want to say heartbreak-
ing, because that's been said. It's
a nightmare. It looks like it's
going to be wave after wave of it
and nobody can stop it"
The oil has steadily spread
east, washing up in greater quan-
tities in recent days, even as a cap
placed by BP over the blown-out
well began to collect some of the
escaping crude. The cap, resem-
bling an upside-down funnel, has
captured about 252,000 gallons of
oil, according to Coast Guard
Adm. Thad Allen, the govern-
ment's point man for the crisis.
If earlier estimates are correct,
that means the cap is capturing
from a quarter to as much as half
the oil spewing from the blowout
each day. But that is a small frac-
tion of the roughly 24 million to 47
million gallons government offi-
cials estimate have leaked into
the Gulf since the April 20 explo-
sion that killed 11 workers, mak-
ing it the nation's largest oil spill
Allen, who said the goal is to
gradually raise the amount of the
oil being captured, compared the
process to stopping the flow of
water from a garden hose with a
finger: "You don't want to put
your finger down too quickly, or
let it off too quickly"
BP officials are trying to cap-
ture as much oil as possible with-
out creating too much pressure or
allowing the buildup of ice-like
hydrates, which form when water
and natural gas combine under
high pressure and low tempera-

Fire ravages Inverness home


A fire that broke out early
Saturday evening in the In-
verness Highlands has left
one family without a home.
Saturday's fire was the
second fire to occur at that
home, which had been re-
built after an electrical fire
years earlier, said the own-
ers' grandson, Manny Coim-
bre of Citrus Hills.
"They've been living
there for years a long
time," he said about the
house at 1226 Blue Bonnet
Terrace. His grandparents,
Gloria Garcia and Raul
Otero, and cousin, Abe
Coimbre, all lived there -
but they were outside when
the fire broke out. None of
them were injured, but one
of their dogs was killed in
the fire.
Abe Coimbre said he was
outside talking to his grand-
mother when he saw
"We were all outside. I
saw smoke and that's it. I
don't know how it hap-
pened," he said.

side that house."
The fire was reported at
6:33 p.m. and the first en-
gine arrived four minutes
later, said Craig Stevens, Cit-
rus County Fire Rescue as-
sistant fire chief of
operations and training.

Firefighters had the flames
knocked down by 6:48 p.m.
with the exception of a few
"hot spots" in the walls of
the approximately 1,300-
square foot home, he said.
Firefighters remained at the
scene through 8 p.m.; the

house was still standing but
it had been severely dam-
aged by flames and smoke.
The house was insured
and Stevens said the cause
of the fire was unknown.

LeMieux: Obama not

doing enough for Florida

Associated Press

U.S. Sen. George LeMieux
criticized President Barack
Obama's handling of the
Gulf oil spill Saturday, say-
ing he hasn't done enough to
help Florida and the other
affected states or their resi-
Obama visited Louisi-
ana's Gulf Coast on Friday,
hours after the first tar balls
began coming ashore in the
Florida Panhandle. It was
the president's third trip to
the Gulf since the crisis
began almost seven weeks
ago when a drilling rig oper-
ated by BP PLC exploded
off the Louisiana coast.
Eleven workers died and a
gusher of oil began spewing
into the Gulf.
"I don't want to just see
my president come down
here and be here for a cou-
ple hours and then go back
off to Chicago or go back off
to Washington, D.C.," the
Florida Republican said
while visiting Pensacola

"I want him on the ground
helping us work on the
ground, managing through
solutions, pushing people
for answers."
Tar balls continued to
come ashore on Pensacola
Beach and along the west-
ern Panhandle on Saturday
and the sea foam was tinged
a rusty orange, staining
driftwood, seashells and
skin. Tar mats and oil sheen
were reported within a mile
of the coast But the beaches
remained open and visitors
crowded the sands and frol-
icked in the water.
The pollution brought
LeMieux, Gov. Charlie Crist,
state environmental protec-
tion secretary Michael Sole
and Maj. Gen. Douglas Bur-
nett, the head of the Florida
National Guard, to Pen-
sacola Beach.
There are fears that
winds and currents will
spread the spill along
Florida's coasts. Up to 46
million gallons of oil have
spewed into the Gulf and
BP's efforts to cap the well
haven't been successful.


U.S. 19 repaving
work starts tonight
The resurfacing of U.S. 19
from Crystal River almost to the
Cross Florida Greenway Canal
is set to begin tonight. The proj-
ect is scheduled to take 255
days, finishing in eight months
in the spring of 2011.
The state's $4.7 million, 8.6-
mile project is being done by
local contractor D.A.B. Con-
structors. The resurfacing will be
done between Northeast First
Street in Crystal River and Comn-
flower Drive on north U.S. 19.
Other improvements in the
project include a traffic light at
Seven Rivers Regional Medical
Center at the Emerald Oaks
Drive intersection, and new
sidewalks between Snug Harbor
Road and the Crystal River Mall.
Work will be done during the
day and at night, and motorists
should expect delays while
traveling through the work
zone. FDOT said the project
will require lane closures, but
the closures will not be permit-
ted in the northbound lanes be-
tween 6:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
and in the southbound direction
between 9 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Lane closure times may,
however, be changed during
the project, and motorists
should watch for notices.

World-class heart care

just inches from home.

Undergoing open-heart surgery is a lot less stressful when you don't have to travel far from home.

Citrus Memorial Heart Center is located right here on the Nature Coast and we provide the same amazing

care as big-city hospitals. In fact, since January 2004, nearly 2,000 patients have trusted us for open-heart surgery.

It may be because we use the most sophisticated technology, or maybe it's because we have some of the most knowledgeable

cardiovascular physicians and staff. Whatever the reason, we're going to continue to grow and heal even more hearts.

To learn more about how we're healing hearts, call 352-344-6416

Yulee Sugar Mill reverie


Driving by the old sugar mill ruins
in Homosassa, it's easy to take the
historic site for granted.

Camp dates are June 14 to

The camp is open for
sixth- through 11th-grade
boys. It runs from 9 a.m. to

lic schools. That doesn't
mean I don't support public
education. There's more to
raising a child than reading,
writing and arithmetic. I
don't know why that should

Coincidentally, Kennedy
attended Seventh-day Ad-

Miele said he has an-

"There's more academic

said. "That's a Christian ed-

"So many people get sick," Tear
said. "One moment they're OK, then
they're sick. You can't drink enough
water You just have to keep drinking
Tear gives common-sense advice
when dealing with the heat: stay in-
doors as much as possible during the
hottest parts of the day Yard work is
better done in the morning before 10
a.m. or in the early evenings.
Health care providers are also used
to seeing people with suspicious spots
and moles on sun-damaged skin.
"We see a lot of older people with
spots on their arms where they had
gotten burnt when they were younger,
where the mole just doesn't look right
or there's a spot that won't heal.
They'll tell us, 'Oh yeah when I was lit-
tle I had sunburn there.' You just did-
n't know back then. The research is so
clear now."
Here are some more tips on keep-
ing skin protected from the sun's
harmful rays (from the Centers for
Disease Control):
The sun's ultraviolet rays can dam-
age your skin in as little as 15 minutes.
Put on sunscreen before you go out-
side, even on slightly cloudy or cool
days. Don't forget to put a thick layer on
all parts of exposed skin. Get help for

hard-to-reach places like your back
How sunscreen works: Most sun
protection products work by absorb-
ing, reflecting, or scattering sunlight.
They contain chemicals that interact
with the skin to protect it from UV
rays. All products do not have the
same ingredients; if your skin reacts
badly to one product, try another one
or call a doctor.
SPF: Sunscreens are assigned a sun
protection factor (SPF) number that
rates their effectiveness in blocking
UV rays. Higher numbers indicate
more protection. You should use a
sunscreen with at least SPF 15
Reapplication: Sunscreen wears
off. Put it on again if you stay out in
the sun for more than two hours, and
after you swim or do things that make
you sweat.
Expiration date: Check the sun-
screen's expiration date. Sunscreen
without an expiration date has a shelf
life of no more than three years, but
its shelf life is shorter if it has been ex-
posed to high temperatures.
Cosmetics: Some make-up and lip
balms contain some of the same
chemicals used in sunscreens. If they
do not have at least SPF 15, don't use
them by themselves.
Loose-fitting long-sleeved shirts
and long pants made from tightly
woven fabric offer the best protection
from the sun's UV rays. A wet T-shirt
offers much less UV protection than a
dry one. Darker colors may offer more
protection than lighter colors.
If wearing this type of clothing isn't

practical, at least try to wear a T-shirt
or a beach cover-up. Keep in mind
that a typical T-shirt has an SPF rat-
ing lower than 15, so use other types
of protection as well.
Hats: For the most protection, wear
a hat with a brim all the way around
that shades your face, ears, and the
back of your neck A tightly woven fab-
ric, such as canvas, works best to pro-
tect your skin from UV rays. Avoid
straw hats with holes that let sunlight
through. A darker hat may offer more
UV protection.
If you wear a baseball cap, you
should also protect your ears and the
back of your neck by wearing clothing
that covers those areas, using sun-
screen with at least SPF 15, or by stay-
ing in the shade.
Sunglasses: Sunglasses protect your
eyes from UV rays and reduce the risk
of cataracts. They also protect the ten-
der skin around your eyes from sun
Sunglasses that block both UVA and
UVB rays offer the best protection.
Most sunglasses sold in the United
States, regardless of cost, meet this
standard. Wrap-around sunglasses
work best because they block UV rays
from sneaking in from the side.
You can reduce your risk of skin
damage and skin cancer by seeking
shade under an umbrella, tree, or
shelter before you need relief from
the sun. Your best bet to protect your
skin is to use sunscreen or wear pro-
tective clothing when you're outside
- even when you're in the shade.

Wild whooping

crane chicks

hatch in Mich.

Special to the Chronicle

The Whooping Crane
Eastern Partnership
(WCEP) is celebrating an-
other success in its efforts
to reintroduce a wild mi-
gratory whooping crane
population in eastern
North America. Two
whooping crane chicks
hatched Monday at
Necedah National Wildlife
Refuge (NWR) in Wiscon-
sin. This is only the third
time in over a century that
naturally produced whoop-
ing cranes have hatched in
the wild in the Midwest.
The chicks, #W1-10 and
#W2-10 (W = wild
hatched), are the offspring
of whooping crane pair #9-
03 and #3-04 from the ul-
tralight-led crane Classes
of 2003 and 2004.
"This is an exciting mo-
ment for the many dedi-
cated people contributing
to this project and another
sign of success for WCEP,"
said Necedah NWR man-
ager Doug Staller.
The chicks are the result
of re-nesting. Earlier this
spring, nine breeding pairs
of whooping cranes built
nests and laid eggs. All
nine nests failed. Four
pairs re-nested, including
#9-03 and #3-04. Two addi-
tional pairs of cranes are
incubating nests. All five
pairs currently remain on
their nests.
The nest abandonments
earlier this spring are sim-
ilar to what has been ob-
served in previous years.
WCEP is investigating the
cause of the abandonments
through analysis of data
collected throughout the
nesting period on crane be-
havior, temperature, and
black fly abundance and
In 2001, WCEP project
partner Operation Migra-
tion's pilots led the first
whooping crane chicks,
conditioned to follow their
ultralight aircraft surro-
gates, south from Necedah
NWR to Chassahowitzka
NWR in southwest Citrus
County. Each subsequent
year, WCEP biologists and
pilots have conditioned
and guided additional
groups of juvenile cranes
to Florida. Having been
shown the way once, the
young birds initiate their
return migration in the
spring, and in subsequent
years, continue to migrate
on their own. In 2008, St.
Marks NWR along
Florida's Gulf Coast was
added as an additional
wintering site for the juve-
nile cranes.
In addition to the ultra-
light-led birds, biologists
from the International
Crane Foundation and the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service rear whooping
crane chicks at Necedah
NWR and release them in
the company of older
cranes from whom the
young birds learn the mi-
gration route. This is the
sixth year WCEP has used
this Direct Autumn Re-
lease method.

In the spring and fall,
project staff from the Inter-
national Crane Foundation
and the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service track and
monitor the released
cranes in an effort to learn
as much as possible about
their unassisted journeys
and the habitat choices
they make both along the
way and on their summer-
ing and wintering grounds.
Most graduated classes
of whooping cranes spend
the summer in central Wis-
consin, where they use
areas on or near Necedah
NWR, as well as other pub-
lic and private lands.
Whooping cranes were
on the verge of extinction
in the 1940s. Today, there
are only about 550 birds in
existence, approximately
400 of them in the wild.
Aside from the 102 WCEP
birds, the only other mi-
grating population of
whooping cranes nests at
Wood Buffalo National
Park in the Northwest Ter-
ritories of Canada and win-
ters at Aransas NWR on
the Texas Gulf Coast. A
non-migrating flock of ap-
proximately 30 birds lives
year-round in the central
Florida/Kissimmee region.
Whooping cranes,
named for their loud and
penetrating unison calls,
live and breed in wetland
areas, where they feed on
crabs, clams, frogs and
aquatic plants. They are
distinctive animals, stand-
ing 5 feet tall, with white
bodies, black wing tips and
red crowns on their heads.
WCEP asks anyone who
encounters a whooping
crane in the wild to please
give them the respect and
distance they need. Do not
approach birds on foot
within 200 yards; remain in
your vehicle; do not ap-
proach in a vehicle within
100 yards.
Also, please remain con-
cealed and do not speak
loudly enough that the
birds can hear you. Finally,
do not trespass on private
property in an attempt to
view or photograph whoop-
ing cranes.

that would significantly in-

to protect Perdido Bay near
the Florida line.
Riley, who was angered by
a Coast Guard decision to

for him to be satisfied. Allen

The futility of their struggle

792 dead birds, sea turtles,
dolphins and other wildlife
have been collected from
the Gulf of Mexico and its
Yet scientists say the
wildlife death toll remains
relatively modest, well

below the tens of thousands
of birds, otters and other
creatures killed after the
Exxon Valdez ran aground
in Alaska's Prince William
Sound. The numbers have
stayed comparatively low
because the Deepwater
Horizon rig was 50 miles off
the coast and most of the oil
has stayed in the open sea.
The Valdez ran aground on
a reef close to land, in a

more enclosed setting.
Experts say the Gulf's
marshes, beaches and
coastal waters, which nur-
ture a dazzling array of life,
could be transformed into
killing fields, though the
die-off could take months or
years and unfold largely out
of sight. The damage could
be even greater beneath the
water's surface, where oil
and dispersants could dev-

state zooplankton and tiny
invertebrate communities
at the base of the aquatic
food chain.
"People naturally tend to
focus on things that are most
conspicuous, like oiled
birds, but in my opinion the
impacts on fisheries will be
much more severe," said
Rich Ambrose, director of
the environmental science
and engineering at program
at UCLA.
The Gulf is also home to
dolphins and species in-
cluding the endangered
sperm whale.
A government report
found that dolphins with
prolonged exposure to oil in
the 1990s experienced skin
injuries and bums, reduced
neurological functions and
lower hemoglobin levels in
their blood.
It concluded, though, that
the effects probably would-
n't be lethal because many
creatures would avoid the
oil. Yet dolphins in the Gulf
have been spotted swim-
ming through plumes of

Can't-do nation

Associated Press
President Barack Obama steps out of his limousine Friday as he walks toward Air Force One
at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., en route to the Louisiana Gulf Coast region to visit areas
affected by the BP oil spill. As the nation's leader, he is taking the most heat for all the prob-
lems that are plaguing the U.S., from the oil spill to the economy to an undefeated Taliban.

Multiple crises fay the country's

Associated Press

ica's vaunted can-do spirit is
badly frayed.
From the Gulf oil spill to
the war in Afghanistan, from
lost jobs to soaring budget
deficits, cascading crises are
defying easy resolution and
undermining faith in the fu-
Take the oil gushing from
a broken well headinto the
Gulf of Mexico for more
than six weeks despite all
efforts to stop it
That gusher, which can be
seen around the clock on live
video feeds from the ocean
floor, stands as a vivid image
of the limits of modern tech-
nology and governance. We
can fly through space and
walk on the moon but
can't stop a crude oil leak
that has grown into the na-
tion's worst environmental
Then there's the economy
Many months after the re-
cession was said to be over,
Friday's jobless figures
showed the nation still in the
grip of frighteningly high un-
employment, despite Obama
administration insistence
that no problem is getting
more attention.
Abroad, the U.S. still hasn't
defeated the Taliban in
Afghanistan after nearly 10
years of trying. We seem un-
able to slow the nuclear
march of Iran and North
Korea. And efforts to broker
peace in the Middle East
keep slipping from our grasp.
These aren't just problems
for President Barack
Obama. But as the nation's
leader, he is taking the most
"He's certainly moved
from seeming to walk on
water to really slogging in
the mud, the oil-filled mud if
you will," said Fred Green-
stein, a Princeton University
presidential scholar. "He is

For now, the disaster at
the top of the list is the oil
still spewing from the blown
BP well. It's hitting more
shores, and now coating
birds, as shown in sicken-
ingly vivid photos.
Obama visited the Gulf
Coast on Friday for the third
time since the April 20
blowout and fire on the
Deepwater Horizon rig that
killed 11 workers.The com-
pany said it was diverting
some oil up a pipe from a
cap it placed on the well but
it was not yet clear how
much. Obama cited signs of
apparent progress but said
it's "way to early to be opti-
mistic" about BP's latest at-
The nation's worst oil spill
has the president on the de-
fensive as he repeatedly in-
sists that he and his
administration have been
fully engaged from the start.
But it's a double-edged mes-
sage, since Obama also
wants it clear that the spill is
BP's fault and the London-
based oil giant's responsibil-
ity to get it under control.
Obama understands the
nation's frustration and says
he shares it.
"I would love to just spend
a lot of my time venting and
yelling at people. But that's
not the job I was hired to do.
My job is to solve this prob-
lem, and ultimately this isn't
about me and how angry I
am," he told CNN's Larry

A recent Gallup poll found
that more than half those
surveyed thought Obama
was handling the crisis
poorly With the spill threat-
ening to undermine his pres-
idency, Obama abruptly
scrapped a trip to Indonesia
and Australia for the second
time this year to focus on the
crisis at home.
It's hardly just about
Obama. Many Americans,
and people in other devel-
oped countries, too, have be-
come accustomed to
believing that technology
and smart thinking can bring
manmade calamities under
control and help guide a na-
tion's destiny
Yet, both domestically and
internationally, little the U.S.
has tried lately seems to be
Pocketbook problems
seem unceasing, in the face
of enormous efforts to get the
economy moving.
Friday's Labor Depart-
ment report said payrolls
rose by 431,000 jobs in May.
But all but about 40,000 of
them were temporary cen-
sus positions, and some
125,000 new jobs are needed
each month just to keep pace
with new entrants into the
labor force. Thirteen million
new ones will be needed to
bring the jobless rate down
to pre-recession rates of
around 6 percent, and econ-
omists don't see that for
years perhaps late 2013, at
the earliest
"We dug ourselves a very
deep hole," said Mark Zandi,
chief economist of Moody's
The nation may have tech-
nically survived the Great
Recession, but the stub-
bornly high jobless rate and
worries about Europe's
economy are fueling fears of
another recession. Mean-
while, the government's
budget deficit is soaring to
near-Greek proportions,
with no good plan to get it
under control.
"Greater realism is
needed about U.S. budget
challenges as the recovery
continues, or America will
join Europe down the
proverbial drain of financial
self abuse," said Peter
Morici, a business professor
at the University of Maryland
and former chief economist
at the U.S. International
Trade Commission.
Stocks in the U.S. plunged
after Friday's weak jobs re-
port and fears of a financial
meltdown in Hungary, with
the Dow industrials closing
down 324 points.
The overseas picture isn't
any brighter away from Eu-
Last week's botched Is-
raeli naval commando raid
on Turkish-flagged aid ships
bound for the Gaza Strip ap-
peared to dampen expecta-
tions of any breakthrough in
stalled Israeli-Palestinian
peace talks. The interna-
tional condemnation of Is-
rael that followed the bloody
raid also further complicates
U.S. efforts against Iran's nu-
clear program.
Likewise, the conclusion
by international investiga-
tors blaming the sinking of a
South Korean warship on a
torpedo from a North Ko-
rean submarine, and the re-
sulting increase in tensions
on the Korean Peninsula,
make it even less likely that
the North will agree to re-
turn to six-nation talks to
limit its nuclear program.
"Things are bad, getting

usual optimism

worse," said Doug Schoen, a
Democratic strategist who
was a pollster for former
President Bill Clinton.
Schoen said the weight of
big crises, plus smaller polit-
ical controversies did the
Obama administration offer
possible jobs to Senate can-
didates in Pennsylvania and
Colorado to tempt them to
drop challenges to White
House-favored candidates?
- can shake public confi-
dence in Obama.
"On each and every prob-
lem we are facing, he and his
administration have been
found wanting and have yet
to meet the challenge that
they themselves said they
were prepared to take on,"
Schoen said.
The White House, of
course, sees it differently
and views the oil spill as the
immediate major challenge.
"I think we're going to be
judged and the president
will be judged on our re-
sponse and our recovery ef-
forts to what we all know
now is the worst environ-
mental disaster in our na-
tion's history," said White
House spokesman Robert
Gibbs. "But pounding on a
podium isn't going to fix a
hole in the ocean."

Today's therapy for cancer is vastly
different than even a few years ago.
Now the most sophisticated form
of radiation delivery is Rapid Arc
by Varian. In roughly a minute and
a half, a beam of treatment can be
administered safely with one revolution
around the patient. Other treatment
methods, such as TomoTherapy, require
up to twenty minutes to accomplish
similar results. This technology
requires multiple revolutions to deliver
treatment, and raises concern over low
dose scatter radiation. Less radiation
beam time reduces unnecessary risk.
RapidArc technology is more expensive
to purchase than TomoTherapy,
but our concern is safety, not cost.


RapidArc is available at the Robert
Boissoneault Oncology Institute.
A sophisticated delivery system is
only part of getting optimal treatment.
Quality care comes from a dedicated
staff comprised of seven physicians,
three PhD physicists, and an array of
masters in radiation physics whose
education and experience exceed most
university centers in our country. The
treatment of the cancer patient with
radiation is not a side service we offer,
it is our profession. It is the sole focus
of our training and commitment.
To meet our staff and see RapidArc
firsthand ... schedule a tour.
Your life deserves the difference.

Indian-American streak continues in spelling bee

Eighth-grader Anamika Veeramani wins with the word 'stromuhr, 'a medical term

Associated Press

tanu Srivatsa and Anamika
Veeramani sat nervously,
side by side on stage.
Once again, an Indian-
American was going to win
the Scripps National
Spelling Bee. It was just a
matter of what word and
what time on Friday.
Shantanu, 13, an eighth-
grader from West Fargo,
N.D., stepped to the micro-
phone first and couldn't
spell "ochidore."
Anamika showing the
cool demeanor she kept
throughout kept her
hands behind her back and
rattled off the correct let-
ters for the medical term
"stromuhr." She didn't
crack a smile until the tro-
phy was presented.
"It was too surreal," she
said. "It was an amazing ex-
perience. I usually have a
poker face, so that's what
that was."
The 14-year-old girl from
North Royalton, Ohio, won
the 83rd bee, claiming the
trophy and more than
$40,000 in cash and prizes
- some of which she says
she intends to spend.
She also became the
third consecutive Indian-
American bee champion.
Indian-Americans com-
prise less than 1 percent of
the U.S. population accord-
ing to 2000 census data, but
they have an impressive
bee winning streak tak-
ing the trophy in eight of
the past 12 years.
"All of the past champi-
ons inspire me, they all
have something different
and they're all amazing
people," Anamika said
after the prime-time finals
on Friday.
She survived the round
by spelling "juvia" a
Brazil nut and then had
to sit through a tense 3 1/2-
minute commercial before
spelling the championship
"It was just really nerve-

racking," Anamika said.
"The commercial breaks
didn't really help."
The finals were preceded
by an unpopular move that
had some spellers and par-
ents claiming the bee was
unfair and had kowtowed
too much to television.
Concerned that there
wouldn't be enough
spellers left to fill the two-
hour slot on ABC, organiz-
ers stopped the semifinals
in the middle of a round
Friday afternoon and de-
clared that the 10 spellers
onstage would advance to
the prime-time broadcast,
including six who didn't
have to spell a word in the
interrupted round. Essen-
tially, the alphabetical
order of the U.S. states
helped determine which
spellers got to move on the
marquee event.
It's one of the pitfalls of
the growing popularity of
the bee, which has to yield
to the constraints of its tele-
vision partners. There were
19 spellers left at the start
of the round, which was too
many for prime-time. But
when the round turned out
to be brutal nine of the
first 13 misspelled ABC
was on the verge of having
too few.

"I don't feel bad at all for
giving these children the
opportunity," bee director
Paige Kimble said. "Do I
wish we could give it to 19?
Yes, certainly, but that's not
practical in a two-hour
broadcast window. We
know it's unpopular and we
don't like to do it, but some-
times you can get into a po-
sition where that's exactly
what you have to do."
The Indian-American
winning streak began with
Nupur Lala, a 2007 gradu-
ate of the University of
Michigan, who became fa-
mous for her 1999 win after
the 2002 release of the
Academy Award-nominated
documentary "Spellbound."
By then, George Abraham
Thampy had won in 2000.
Pratyush Buddiga took the

title two years later. The
streak continued through
the decade: Sai Gunturi
won in 2003, Anurag
Kashyap in 2005, Sameer
Mishra in 2008 and Kavya
Shivashankar in 2009.
Kavya, now 14, returned
this year to watch her sister
Vanya, 8, compete in her
first national bee. She was
eliminated before the tele-
vised semifinals.
After Kavya congratu-
lated Anamika onstage, she
said winning the bee has
less to do with nationality
and more to do with a pas-
sion for words.
"I can't really speak for
other people, but, for me, it
was just enjoying spelling,"
Kavya said.
Kavya's father, Mirle
Shivashankar, was hesitant

there are a lot of girls who

Anamika's father, Ala-
gaiya Veeramani, a civil en-

why Indian-Americans
seem to do so well at the
competition. He guessed it
has something to do with a
hard-work ethic.

time. It's been a family

as 16 hours on some days. "I

and writing.

Drug boosts survival in skin cancer study

Associated Press

CHICAGO Researchers
have scored the first big win
against melanoma, the
deadliest form of skin can-
cer. An experimental drug
significantly improved sur-
vival in a major study of
people with very advanced
The results, reported Sat-
urday at a cancer confer-
ence, left doctors elated.
"We have not had any
therapy that has prolonged
survival" until now, said Dr.
Lynn Schuchter of the
Abramson Cancer Center at
the University of Pennsylva-
nia, a skin cancer specialist
with no role in the study or
ties to the drug's maker.
The drug, ipilimumab,

(ip-ee-LIM-uh-mab), works
by helping the immune sys-
tem fight tumors. The fed-
eral Food and Drug
Administration has pledged
a quick review, and doctors
think the drug could be
available by the end of this
"People are going to have
a lot of hope and want this
drug, and it's not on their
doctors' shelves," although
some may be able to get it
through special programs
directly from its maker,
Bristol-Myers Squibb Co.,
Schuchter said.
Melanoma is the most se-
rious form of skin cancer.
Last year in the United
States, there were about
68,720 new cases and 8,650
deaths from the disease.

Early detection equals
a better outcome
Melanoma is a cancer that starts
in a certain kind of skin cell and,
over time, spreads throughout
the body. It can almost always be
cured in its early stages.

Worldwide, more than
50,000 people die of
melanoma each year.
"The incidence is rising
faster than any other can-
cer," said one of the study's

leaders, Dr. Stephen Hodi of
Dana-Farber Cancer Insti-
tute in Boston. "When it
spreads to vital organs, it's
almost always fatal."
Doctors also reported Sat-
urday at the conference that
an experimental drug for
lung cancer patients with a
certain gene showed ex-
traordinary promise in
early testing. The drug,
Pfizer Inc.'s crizotinib, tar-
gets a gene that promotes
tumor growth and is found
in about 4 percent of lung
cancers, especially among
younger, non-smokers.
Nearly 220,000 new cases
of lung cancer are diag-
nosed each year in the
United States alone, and it
is the world's top cancer
killer. Two other gene-tar-

geted treatments, Tarceva
and Iressa, help about

annually in the U.S.

After six months of unem-
ployment, your chances of

The proportion of people
jobless for six months or
more has accelerated in the
past year and now makes up
46 percent of the unem-
ployed. That's the highest
percentage on records dat-
ing to 1948. By late summer
or early fall, they are ex-
pected to make up half of all
jobless Americans.
Economists say those out
of work for six months or
more risk becoming less and
less employable. Their skills
can erode, their confidence
falter, their contacts dry up.
Their growing ranks also will
keep pressure on Congress
to keep extending jobless
benefits, which now run for

Italy's Schiavone win French Open;

brings first women s major to nation

Associated Press

PARIS For more than a
decade as a professional tennis
player, and nearly 30 years as a
person, Francesca Schiavone
waited and worked to reach this
particular moment on this partic-
ular court, and there was no way
she was going to conceal her ex-
citement about arriving.
As Schiavone moved closer,
point by important point, to win-
ning the French Open title, and to
giving Italy its first female cham-

pion at a Grand Slam tournament,
she let everyone watching share
in the sheer joy.
At 2-all in the second-set
tiebreaker of Saturday's taut final
against Samantha Stosur of Aus-
tralia, Schiavone hit a forehand
volley winner and raised a fist,
well aware she was four points
from victory.
Schiavone next smacked a vol-
ley to end a nine-stroke exchange
and jumped to celebrate. Three
points away. A forehand winner
followed, and Schiavone

screamed, Two points away. She
slid through the red clay and,
lunging, poked yet another volley
winner. She yelled again, hopping
in place. One point away.
And then, after delivering a
spin-laden backhand from the
baseline, Schiavone watched the
ball glance off Stosur's racket
frame and deflect harmlessly in
the wrong direction. Zero points

Stunning gallop


pulls upset in

Belmont Stakes

Associated Press
NEW YORK An under-
achiever finally came through in
the $1 million Belmont Stakes
and gave Hall of Famers Bill Mott
and Mike Smith milestones
they've been seeking for decades.
Drosselmeyer, left out of the
Kentucky Derby because he
failed to earn enough money,
outlasted a couple of Dudes and
held off Fly Down by three-quar-
ters of a length to win the final
leg of the Triple Crown.
The win by the gleaming 3-year-
old chestnut colt ended Smith's 0
for 12 riding record in the Bel-
mont, and gave Mott his first
victory in a Triple Crown race.
"To finally win this one," said
Smith, "unbelievable."
With neither Derby winner
Super Saver nor Preakness win-
ner Lookin At Lucky in the field,
the 1/2-mile Belmont looked to
be a matchup of classic runner-
ups Ice Box from the Derby vs.
First Dude from the Preakness.
First Dude took the lead, but
couldn't hold off Drosselmeyer in
the stretch and finished third
after giving way to Fly Down in
the final strides.
Ice Box, the 9-5 favorite trained
by Nick Zito, was never in con-
tention and finished ninth in the
12-horse field. Zito's Fly Down
ended up as the 5-1 second choice.
The victory reaffirmed
Drosselmeyer's talent Purchased
by WinStar Farm for $600,000, the
colt started his career on turf,
won two races on dirt, then went 0
for 3 in the Risen Star, Louisiana
Derby and the Dwyer, where he
was beaten by six lengths by Fly
Down on May 8.
"It all came together," said
Mott, best known as the trainer of
the great Cigar in 1995-96. "I think
it was just a matter of time with
some of the good horses I get to
train that it was going to happen."
One reason it happened may
have been a jockey switch to
Smith from Kent Desormeaux,
who was aboard Drosselmeyer
for seven of his eight starts.
"I felt like the horse needed a
little change in routine," said
WinStar racing manager Elliott
Walden. "We went to Mike be-
cause we felt he would get him
in a rhythm and keep him run-

ning. This horse really kicked
hard turning for home and fin-
ished strong."
WinStar seems to be making
all the right calls these days, and
closed out the Triple Crown with
wins in two races they also
own Derby winner Super Saver.
On a hot, sunny Saturday in
front of 45,243 at Belmont Park,
Drosselmeyer was sent off at odds
of 13-1. It was Smith who made a
key decision to keep his long-
striding colt in the clear He eased
the horse to the outside for the
run down the backstretch, always
keeping First Dude within range.

Drosselmeyer made a five
wide move on the final turn and
continued widest of all, eventu-
ally reeling in Game on Dude,
then First Dude before holding
off a late charge from Fly Down.
The winning time was 2:31.57,
the slowest since Thunder Gulch
won in 2:32 in 1995.
Game on Dude was fourth, fol-
lowed by Uptowncharlybrown,
Stay Put, Interactif, Stately Vic-
tor, Ice Box, Make Music for Me,
Dave In Dixie and Spangled Star
Drosselmeyer returned $28,
$11.60 and $7.70. Fly Down, with
John Velazquez aboard, paid

$6.80 and $5.10. First Dude re-
turned $4.90 to show.
After the race, Uptowncharly-
brown was disqualified and un-
placed after a weight violation.
The horse lost his lead weight
pad during the race and failed to
carry the required 126 pounds.
Zito had mixed emotions about
his favorites.
"I'm obviously disappointed in
Ice Box," Zito said. "He was
ready to go the last couple of
days, but I guess he just left his
race somewhere. He certainly

Wilkes answered his phone a

Warren's voice urging him to

recent years, but this time, it
was different
Warren told Wilkes that
Wooden might be nearing the

"There were lots of people
coming through," said Keith
Erickson, who starred on the
1964 and '65 national title
teams. "Everybody wanted to
give their last regards to him
and let him know for sure that
we had been there and how
much we loved him."
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar,
known as Lew Alcindor in his
college days, rushed back from
Europe, reaching Wooden's

Rays reeling after 6-1 loss to Texas

Tampa Bay loses

to Rangers for 2nd

night in a row

Associated Press
ARLINGTON, Texas Tommy
Hunter needed to beat the heat
before he could beat the Tampa
Bay Rays.
Hunter pitched a five-hitter in
his season debut, and Josh Hamil-
ton homered in the Rangers' 6-1
victory over the Rays on Saturday.

Hunter (1-0), called up from
Triple-A Oklahoma earlier in the
day, struck out four and didn't
issue a walk. He retired 14 of the
last 16 batters he faced for his sec-
ond career complete game.
On an afternoon when field tem-
peratures were over 100 degrees,
Hunter threw 117 pitches, keeping
the Rays off-balance with an effec-
tive cutter and breaking balls.
"It was hot," Hunter said.
"There's nothing else to say. It was
hot. They made sure I was OK.
They asked me, 'Are you all right?'
I said I'm good. They let me go out
and finish the job."
Hunter began the season on the

15-day DL because of a left oblique
strain he sustained in spring train-
ing, and he began a minor league
rehab stint on April 28.
After going 1-2 with a 4.05 ERA
in six starts for Oklahoma City,
Hunter on Saturday assumed the
rotation spot of left-hander Derek
Holland, placed on the 15-day dis-
abled list last Tuesday due to left
rotator cuff inflammation.
Hunter's other complete game
came against Seattle on Sept. 13,
Hunter's ability to work fast and
get ahead of hitters is appreciated

Africa The dress rehearsal
could not have gone much
better for the United States.
In a small stadium near
an open field in a suburb
west of Johannesburg, the
Americans beat Australia
for the first time, a 3-1 vic-
tory Saturday on a sun-
splashed autumn afternoon
that filled the U.S. players
with confidence.
Next up is the game the
Americans have been wait-
ing six months for, their
high-profile World Cup
opener against England on
June 12.
"We don't fear them,"
Landon Donovan said. "We
feel they're a team we can

compete with."
Edson Buddle, not even in
the national team picture a
few months ago, scored in
the fourth and 31st minutes
for his first two interna-
tional goals. Herculez
Gomez, another player not
expected to make the World
Cup roster, entered in the
82nd minute and scored
against the Socceroos in
second-half injury time, his
second national team goal
in 12 days.
"It seems like everything
Edson touches is a goal," goal-
keeper Tim Howard said.

In the two previous
warmups since gathering in
mid-May, the U.S. lost to the
Czech Republic 4-2 using

mostly second-stringers,
then rallied for a 2-1 win
over Turkey in last week-
end's sendoff.
This was the team's first

game since arriving in
South Africa on Monday,
and the first it used with the
much-criticized Adidas Jab-
ulani ball.
"I think the majority of
the problems today were
due to the flight of the ball,"
Donovan said. "I think a lot
of times the ball doesn't fly
true, and it puts your de-
fenders under a lot of pres-
sure. So we're going to have
to do some work this week
just judging the ball better."
In the next six days, U.S.
coach Bob Bradley will
watch injured forward Jozy
Altidore, who didn't play
after spraining his right
ankle during training
Wednesday. In his absence,
Bradley started Buddle,
Major League Soccer's scor-
ing leader, as his target for-
ward and paired him with
speedy Robbie Findley.
Findley went wide with
an open shot in the 15th

minute that could have
made it 2-0. But his speed
stretched the defense.
"They worked great to-
gether," said midfielder
Michael Bradley, son of the
coach. "The movement was
good. They were a real
handful to play against"
Bradley also must decide
on the fitness of central de-
fender Oguchi Onyewu. Ap-
pearing in his third match
since knee surgery on Oct.
21, Onyewu entered in the
61st minute for Clarence
Goodson, who was paired
with Jay DeMerit
"I'm feeling good,"
Onyewu said. "Everyone's
starting to jell together."
Howard played the first
half, and backup Marcus
Hahnemann the second. He
made a point-blank stop on
Mark Bresciano in the 59th

Blue Jays 3, Yankees 2,
14 innings
TORONTO Aaron Hill singled
home the winning run in the 14th inning
and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the
New York Yankees 3-2 on Saturday.
Facing right-hander Chad Gaudin
(0-3), New York's sixth pitcher of the
game, Edwin Encarnacion led off
the bottom of the 14th with a walk,
then took second on Fred Lewis'
sacrifice bunt.
Hill followed with a single to center,
scoring Encarnacion without a throw.
Vernon Wells and Alex Gonzalez hit
solo home runs for the Blue Jays, who
lead the major leagues with 96 homers.
Casey Janssen (4-0) pitched two in-
nings for the win.
New York has dropped two
straight, while the Blue Jays have
won six of eight.
The Yankees used a single and two
walks to load the bases in the second,"-.
but ninth hitter Kevin Russo ended the
threat by grounding out to short.
Wells put the Blue Jays in front with
a leadoff homer to right in the bottom
half, his 14th of the season.
Derek Jeter put New York on top
with a two-run home run to right in the
fifth, his sixth. The homer gave him
1,101 career RBIs, moving him past
Don Mattingly into ninth place on the
Yankees' all time list .. .., ,
Jeter had a chance to add to the
lead in the seventh. Batting with men
at second and third and one out, he
lined out to Hill at second base, who
doubled Francisco Cervelli off third to
end the inning.

Cardinals 5, Brewers 4,
11 innings
ST. LOUIS Colby Rasmus singled
home the winning run in the 11th inning
to lift the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-4
victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Newly acquired Aaron Miles singled
with one out in the 11th and advanced
to second on Yadier Molina's base hit
to center. Rasmus, who had three hits
and three RBIs, laced a shot just in
front of outfielder Jim Edmonds. Ed-
monds held on to the ball with Miles al-
ready around third.
The Brewers failed to take advan-
tage of two errors, including one that
allowed Edmonds to reach second to
start the 11th. But with runners on first
and second and one out, reliever
Mitchell Boggs got Carlos Gomez to fly
out, and Rickie Weeks grounded out to
end the inning.

Angels 11, Mariners 2
ATTLE.-Torii Hunter had three
hit1rired RBIs and keyed a decisive
six-run sixth inning to lead the surging
Los Angeles Angels to an 11-2 rout of
the.Seattle Mariners on Saturday.
The Angels won for the ninth time in
11 games, and improved to 5-1 on a
14-game road trip the team's
longest trek in eight years.
Ervin Santana (6-3) won his fifth.
consecutive start, allowing one run
and seven hits in six innings, and Los
Angeles moved a season-high two
games over .500.
The Mariners wore aqua-green jer-
seys while "turning back the clock" to
their first playoff season of 1995. But it
felt more like their dreadful days of
1970s and'80s.
Three Seattle relievers allowed 10
earned runs, seven hits and seven
walks before they got their fifth out fol-
lowing fill-in starter Ryan Rowland-
Smith's outing.
The Mariners have hit into five double
plays, three by former Angel Chone Fig-
gins, while losing the first two games of
this series to fall 11 games under .500.
It was the 23rd time in 55 games
Seattle scored two or fewer runs.

Red Sox 8, Orioles 2
BALTIMORE Kevin Youkilis
homered in the seventh inning to break
open a scoreless game, and the
Boston Red Sox beat Baltimore 8-2
Saturday night to extend the Orioles'
losing streak to 10 games.
Jon Lester (7-2) gave up four hits
and three walks in 61-3 innings to win
his seventh straight decision, matching
the longest unbeaten run of his career.
The left-hander is 11-0 with a 2.06
ERA lifetime against the Orioles.
Jeremy Guthrie (3-6) was nearly as
effective for Baltimore. But after allowing
only two hits through six innings, his first
pitch of the seventh inning was driven
by Youkilis into the left-field seats.
Boston added a run against Guthrie
in the eighth when newcomer Josh
Reddick tripled and scored on a single
by Marco Scutaro. .,.
The Red Sox broke it open in the
ninth, using two-run doubles by pinch-
hitter Darnell McDonald, Bill Hall and
Youkilis to go up 8-0.
Baltimore ended a run of 19 straight
scoreless innings in the bottom half
when Scott Moore hit a two-run dou-
ble, but that was perhaps the lone flaw
in Boston's seventh straight road win
- its longest such run since June

Ryan Howard went 2 for 4 with a

The kid's still on top

Rickle Fowler tees off on the par-4 second hole during the third round of the Memorial golf tournament Saturday at Muir-
field Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio. Fowler parred the hole and leads the event by three strokes with a 16-under total.

up birdies, even if there was
none on his card as he ap-
proached the turn Saturday
with his lead dwindling.
He pounced with a shot
that showed his age 21 -

him apart.
From a distance in the
ninth fairway that typically.
called for a pitching wedge
- 125 yards, slightly down-
hill to a front pin just beyond
the water Fowler opted
for a punch 9-iron that would
keep the ball from spinning
too much and possibly going
into the water. ,
"I wasn't going (t' throw a
pitching wedge and have the
ball spinning very much,"
Fowler said. "It was like a
cut-off9, start the ball left, try
to hit it down and had a little
cut in there." -
It stopped 6 feet behind
the hole for his first birdie,
and he was on his way.
Unfazed by six hours of
rain delays or the 62 that
Ricky Barnes shot- playing
with Tiger Woods, no less -
Fowler completed another
round without a bogey and
shot 3-under 69 to build a
three-shot lead over Barnes

and Tim Petrovic.
Now, he is one round away
from joining the recent
youth movement on the PGA
,"I'm hitting the ball well,"
Fowler said. "I kept it out of
trouble, and I knew opportu-

Fowler was at 16-under

hole lead at the Memorial
since Woods led by six shots
in 2000.
Patience doesn't seem to
fit with the trend toward
youth. Fowler will try Sun-
day to become the third PGA
Tour winner in the last six

ing Rory McIlroy, who won
Quail Hollow two days be-
fore his 21st birthday, and
Jason Day, who was 22 when
he won the Byron Nelson
Experience might not be a
factor in this case. The five
players separated by five
shots going into the final

one PGA Tour victory, by
Petrovic in New Orleans in
five years ago.

his birdie putt was about to

holed out a 9-iron for eagle
on No. 11 to reach 7 under for
the day, and he kept right on
going until he had the lowest
round of his career, and the
best score of the week
"I think it probably got no-

Barnes said. "Obviously, the
cameras were probably al-

For the first time since
Woods returned to competi-
tion, he refused to speak to
the media. "I'm done,", he
said to a PGA Tour official
before walking over a bridge
toward the locker room,
stopping to sign a few auto-
graphs at the top of a hill.
Woods had a 69, which in-
cluded a double bogey on the
10th hole when his tee shot
went 45 degrees to the right
and out-of-bounds, much
like his tee shot on the 14th

hole of The Players Champi-
onship that went into a pond
on the adjacent hole.
He was at 6-under 210, tied
for 20th, well out of con-
tention. A four-time winner
at the Memorial, Woods has
not been this far out of the
lead since he finished 17
shots behind in 1998.

- Nick Price topped the sec-
ond-round leaderboard again
in the Principal Charity Classic,

Tommy Armour III at 10-under

Price lost the two years after
holding at least a share of the
second-round lead in the
event. He three-putted the final
hole in 2008 to hand the title to
Jay Haas, then lost to Mark
McNulty last year in a three-
man playoff.
Armour followed his opening
63 with a 69.
Don Pooley, the 2003 win-
ner, was 9 under after a 65.
Bruce Vaughan (66), Dan
Forsman (68) and Russ
Cochran (68) were another
shot back. Fred Couples, a
three-time winner in seven
senior starts, was 2 under after
his second straight 70.

Chicago looks to bounce back

'Hawks try to

regroup after

losses in Philly

Associated Press

CHICAGO When they
won the first two games of
the Stanley Cup finals, the
Chicago Blackhawks were
soaring. A trip to Philadel-
phia brought them back to
reality in a hurry.
After two wins by the gritty
Flyers on their home ice tied
the series, the championship
round is now a best-of-3.

Before Sunday night's
Game 5 back at the United
Center, the Blackhawks
know they have adjust to
the Flyers' speed, to Philly's
rugged defense led by vet-
eran Chris Pronger, to their
own inability to get scoring
from their top players or
risk losing what they've
come this far to achieve.
Coach Joel Quenneville is
expected to mix some lines,
and Chicago's defense
hopes to give goalie Antti
Niemi more support against
a balanced Flyers' attack
that has shown to be the
Blackhawks' equal.
To re-establish them-
selves, the Blackhawks know

they can't repeat their mis-
takes from Games 3-4. De-
fenseman Niklas
Hjalmarsson's poor puck
handling near the net led to
a pair of first-period goals by
the Flyers en route to a 5-3
And Chicago was too slow
with a line change in Game 3,
helping set up Philly's game-
winning goal in overtime that
produced a 4-3 victory.
Niemi, whose stellar play
in the final period of Game
2 preserved a Chicago vic-
tory, gave up eight goals in
the two games at the Wa-
chovia Center.
"He's played well for us
all season.... We're not wor-

ried at all," Chicago's Brent
Sopel said Saturday. "We left
him high and dry as
Philadelphia's Michael
Leighton, meanwhile, ran
his record to 8-2 with the vic-
tory Friday night The for-
mer Blackhawk has a .924
save percentage and a 2.14
goals-against average. And
his defense gave him great
support in Game 4 with 28
blocked shots.
One of the Flyers' big ad-
vantages in the series has
been on special teams.
Chicago's power play is just
1-for-9 after converting a 5-
on-3 Friday night, while
Philadelphia is 5-for-16.

Bret Michaels: I don't want my legacy to be that I was sick

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES No groupies.
No after-parties. No stage diving.
These aren't typical doctor's or-
ders, but bandana-clad Poison
frontman Bret Michaels is no aver-
age patient Despite suffering sev-
eral medical maladies over the past
two months, the "Celebrity Appren-
tice" champion is moving forward
with his tour, album and a new VH1
reality series that promises to show
the rocker in a new light
"I think this is good for my soul,"
Michaels said in a phone interview
Thursday from his latest concert
stop in Minneapolis. "Honestly, I'm
taking every precaution. I'm not
doing anything stupid. I'm going on

week later, he resumed his "Cus-

suffering his hemorrhage. Martin
said the chances of another hemor-

won't be complicated.
"I think as long he monitors him-

as his doctors have given him the
green light to go back to work, I
think he should be OK," said Mar-

Production on Michaels' new

"Of course it's disappointing.

Birthday Today: Your involvements in the year ahead might
lead you into partaking in some arrangement orsituation that
has political overtones. The role you play could turn out to be
quite exciting, which you'll greatly enjoy.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) -Take care about recommending
to a friend someone you just met without knowing about that
person's business ethics. You may be held accountable if they
aren't aboveboard.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) It's admirable to be open-
minded and receptive to the bizarre ways of another, but don't
carry it too far. You could be judged by this person's ways just
because you accept them.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -Adopting a poor attitude about some
work that is thrown at you is likely to only hurt you further. If all
you do is complain about it, chances are it will create additional
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept 22) Be extremely cautious about

doing something that is highly speculative. If you're not well
trained or knowledgeable about being able to handle it, you
could get badly hurt.
Ubra (Sept 23-Oct. 23) -An old, disruptive issue might rear
its ugly head again and affect the entire household. Remember
past missteps and be much smarter about how you handle
things this time around.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Take care not to say anything
about a co-worker that you wouldn't say to his/her face, be-
cause anything you tell another will be repeated verbatim to the
person in question.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Its good to be careful about
handling your hard-eamed funds, but not to the point of being
labeled a miser. Conversely, being extravagant can be waste-
ful. Find the middle ground.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If you're too insistent about
doing everything your way, you'll invite some major objections

as well as problems with cohorts, and end up impeding your
progress. Be more open-minded.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Unless you think your moves
through carefully before acting on anything, you could become
a victim of your own ineptitude. Above all, don't do anything out
of spite or anger.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Be optimistic and positive about
your material interests, but not to the point to where you ignore
all wamings. Actions must be based upon realistic premises.
Aries (March 21-April 19) Not setting any goals will lead to
an aimless day that could even include a lack of interest in so-
cial activities. Chances are the only way you'll do anything of
substance is to be pushed into it.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) Poking your nose into the affairs
of another is likely to lead to a misinterpretation about some-
thing you think s/he is keeping from you. It's best not to pry too
deeply into what's none of your business.

Uncharted waters

Associated Press
A worker leaves the beach May 30 as storm clouds approach in Grand Isle, La. Six weeks after the catastrophe began, oil giant BP PLC is
still casting about for at least a temporary fix to the spewing well underneath the Gulf of Mexico that's fouling beaches, wildlife and marshland.
A relief well that's currently being drilled, which is supposed to be a better long-term solution, won't be done for at least two months. That
would be in the middle of the Atlantic hurricane season, which began Tuesday.

Gulfoil spill complicating hurricane season forecasts

Associated Press

VENICE, La. With hurricane season
under way, the giant oil spill in the Gulf of
Mexico takes weather forecasters into
nearly uncharted waters.
The Gulf is a superhighway for hurri-
canes that form or explode over pools of
hot water, then usually move north or west
toward the coast. The site of the sunken rig
is along the general path of some of the
worst storms ever recorded, including Hur-
ricane Camille, which wiped out the Mis-
sissippi coast in 1969, and Hurricane
Katrina in 2005.
The season officially started Tuesday,
and while scientists seem to agree that the
sprawling slick isn't likely to affect the for-
mation of a storm, the real worry is that a
hurricane might turn the millions of gal-
lons of floating crude into a crashing black
Some fear a horrific combination of dam-
aging winds and large waves pushing oil
deeper into estuaries and wetlands and
coating miles of debris-littered coastline in
a pungent, sticky mess.
And the worst effects of an oil-soaked
storm surge might not be felt for years: If
oil is pushed deep into coastal marshes
that act as a natural speed bump for storm
surges, areas including New Orleans could
be more vulnerable to bad storms for a
long time.
Experts say there are few, if any, studies
on such a scenario.
In this "untreaded water ... it's tough to
theorize about what would happen," said
Joe Bastardi, chief long-range hurricane
forecaster with AccuWeather.com.
The lone precedent, experts agree, is the
summer of 1979, when storms hampered ef-
forts to contain a spill from a Mexican rig
called Ixtoc 1 that eventually dumped 140
million gallons off the Yucatan Peninsula.
Hurricane Henri, a Category 1 storm, dam-
aged a 310-ton steel cap designed to stop
the leak that would become the worst
peacetime spill in history.
Still, while oil from that spill coated
miles of beaches in Texas and Mexico,
tropical storms and unseasonable cold
fronts that year helped reverse offshore
currents earlier than normal and drive oil
away from the coast. Storms also helped
disperse some of the oil, Bastardi said.

W 1

Gov. Charlie Crist, right, listens as Florida Emergency Management Director Dave Halestead
speaks to the media Thursday about hurricane season at the annual Governor's Hurricane
Conference In Fort Lauderdale. He also spoke about the Gulf oil spill and how it's affecting Florida.

"That's what I think would happen this
time," he said. "I'm sure a hurricane would
do a great deal of diluting the oil, spread-
ing it out where the concentrations would
be much less damaging."
At least 19 million gallons, according to
the latest estimates, have leaked from the
seabottom 5,000 feet below the surface
since the April 20 explosion of BP PLC's
Deepwater Horizon rig, which killed 11.
Syrupy oil has crept into Louisiana's
marshes, coating plants, killing some birds
and threatening wetlands.
The threat to the marshes could have im-
plications lasting well beyond this hurricane
season. Louisiana already has lost huge
swaths of coastal wetlands in recent decades,
and the oil is a major threat to the long-term
viability of that delicate ecosystem.
If the plants that hold the marshes to-
gether were to die at the roots, the base
would wash away, leaving deeper water
and less of a buffer for hurricanes, said
Joseph Suhayda, director of the Louisiana
State University Hurricane Center.
"That would increase the amount of
surge inland," Suhayda said.

Even without considering hurricanes,
there is uncertainty about whether marsh
cane and other plants will die to the roots
or just above the surface from this oil spill.
If the plants' roots survive, they could
come back over time. If not, the results
could be catastrophic.
"I don't think anybody is going to know
precisely It depends on the quantity of the
oil," said David White, a biological sci-
ences professor at Loyola University New
There is a chance that a hurricane or
tropical storm could offer wetlands a re-
prieve from the oil, at the expense of areas
farther inland. A storm surge of several
feet, even if it is carrying oil, would pass
over the top of the outer, low-lying marshes
and disperse the mess in less toxic
amounts, Suhayda said.
But such a storm could also push oil into
freshwater marshes where ducks and
geese thrive, White said.
Experts are predicting a busy hurricane
season with powerful storms. Bastardi pre-

A woman

of force

for over 4

In the late 1970s I
started working at the
Chronicle while it
was owned by David
Arthurs of Inverness. We
were a weekly newspaper
in a fast-growing town and
there was a lot of fun in-
volved in covering the
There weren't many
i Chronicle employees at
the time, but one of them
was this very forceful
woman in accounting
named Linda Miller.
Linda seemed to know
everyone in Inverness and
she managed to introduce
me to half the town.
Fast-forward to Friday
30-something years
later and a long journey of
side trips Linda worked
her final day at our com-
pany. She was serving as
the office manager at the
Riverland News, our sis-
ter paper in Dunnellon.
For the last four
decades Linda has been a
behind-the-scenes person
in Citrus County who used
her organizational skills
and blunt force to make
good things happen. She
didn't do all of that while
working for our newspa-
per company.
When she first left the
Chronicle, she went to
work for U.S. Rep. Richard
Kelly, who then served the
5th District of Florida.
Linda became his aide
and went to Washington to
help run his office.
It would be an under-
statement to say that
Richard Kelly was the
most colorful congress-
man that Citrus County
ever helped elect. He was
a judge from Zephyrhills
in Pasco County before he
ran for Congress. At one
point while serving on the
bench, Kelly was accused
by an opponent of being
(well, how do I say this
nicely) absolutely crazy.
The state held hearings
to determine if Kelly was
fit to sit on the judicial
bench and he was eventu-
ally cleared. When he ran
for Congress, Kelly cam-
paigned as the only candi-
date that the state of
Florida had ruled to be

Praise and advice for the class of 2010

South Marion Citizen
T his is a big month for many
"'. young people in our area,
as they leave high school
and move on to the next phase of
their lives.
Graduation ceremonies have
taken place at local high schools
a landmark day for thousands
of young adults who are ready to
venture out into the world.
This graduating class has been
through a little more than many of
us. These young people were
fourth-graders on Sept. 11, 2001,

when two planes smashed into the
World Trade Center in New York,
one hit the Pentagon and another
crashed in Pennsylvania, chang-
ing the face of America forever.
They are venturing into an un-
certain world, one filled with fear
of terrorism, one filled with eroding
freedoms in the name of security.
Those of us who have lived
through many years of strife and
conflict- and many years of pros-
perity and peace can give some
words of advice to the young grad-
uates. Whether they pay attention
is up to them, and whether they
agree is also up to them. But at

least it's a point of view that they
can use to steer them in whatever
direction they want to go.
1. If you have a chance to con-
tinue your education, by all means
do so. In this era, it is almost im-
possible to advance yourself in the
job market without some sort of
post-secondary education. It can
be college, junior college, trade
school or specialized classes, but
make sure you learn as much as
you can. You've made it through
one important period you've got
your high school diploma. Now
look to see what else you can do to
learn. Your brains are still relatively

young; you have a better capacity
to learn than many of us old dogs
who find it hard to learn new tricks.
2. If you go to college, learn the
difference between opinion and
fact from your professors. The
good ones will make it clear for
you, but there are some who will
ram their thoughts down your
throat without making it clear that
it's what they think, not what the
world accepts as truth.
3. If you haven't already, develop
a good work ethic. When it comes
to studying and school assign-
ments, the days of someone look-
ing over your shoulder to make

sure you are doing what you are
supposed to are over. You're on
your own. Your education, or your
job, are what you make it Take a
look at employment ads in almost
every major field. They'll say
things like "self-starter" or "must
work well without supervision."
Managers in the business world
don't want to have to watch every
step that you take. Learn to work
by yourself with maximum effort
Remember, the world doesn't owe
you a living; you have to go out and
make your own mark.

Government needs

a plan to deal with

illegal immigrants

C itrus County sheriff's
deputies recently

was the lone person jailed in
the incident.

The story prompted Sound

angry with the federal govern-
ment for not having a good plan.
The federal government has
struggled to develop a decent
plan. President Bush had
wanted to grant total amnesty.
Others in government favor

want to stop the flow of illegal
immigrants, stop the incentive
to come here. Although, that
can be easier said than done.
Many of the illegal immigrants
are used as cheap labor for the
agricultural industry and U.S.
citizens are not likely to work



for such low wages.
Americans could commit to
paying higher prices for pro-
duce so higher wages could be
paid, but again is the desire to
keep others out of the country
worth the cost?

Flag frustrations
Today is Memorial Day. I went

put out by my curb, like my neigh-
bors have. I could not find any. I
looked all over the store. So when
I got to the checkout, I asked the
clerk where they were. She said,
"Oh, I don't know, I'll ask some-

in the face on Memorial Day when
he doesn't show up at Arlington
Cemetery, like every other presi-
dent in the past, and put a
wreath. This is a real slap in the
face to all veterans and active-
duty military.
Few flags
I am appalled at the lack of
flags flying on Memorial Day. I
drove from my house on Yuma
Lane and only saw no more than
six or seven flags between here
and Beverly Hills. One house on
Pine Ridge had two. You can get a
flag, pole and bracket for about
$10. Show some respect for our
vets. Fly your flag. My flag flies
365 days a year, 24 hours a day
and is lit at night. For shame.
Forget flags
I'd just like to say, instead of
wasting money on a stupid little
flag that are probably made in
China to stick on every single
grave in Arlington, why don't they
buy the soldiers that's alive and
send them a calling card so they
can call home in memory of a sol-
dier that died so he can make
that phone call.

More cuts
Excellent letter by Joseph Ryan about federal budget
cuts. I'd like to add a few more. In addition to ending
the taxpayer-funded federal pensions, we need to cut
the salaries of all our representatives and have term
limits. But another thingis.the NationalInstitute of '
Health, all these studies that they do. There's so many.
I've looked into it and there's so many projects and they
spend billions of dollars researching stupid things, as
well as just, you know, a multitude of projects and stud-
ies and research on, you know, left-handed people with
blue eyes. It's just silly. We need to cut all the waste.

Big-picture lessons

B P CEO Tony Hayward
recently complained
he wanted his life
back As my family and friends
back home in Louisiana put it,
that's a gobsmack He wants his
life back? The 11 people need-
lessly killed in the BP oil spill
would like their lives back, Mr.
Hayward. In the sense you mean,
so would those injured, and so
would the millions in the Gulf re-

gion whose health is
threatened and liveli-
hood crippled by your
company's negligence.
We want our lives
back, sir. How will you
rectify the damage of
an estimated 798,000
gallons of oil a day
spewing into the deli-
cate but vital ecosys-
tem that is the Gulf of
Mexico? And don't you
dare call the explosion
an accident when, as
The Times-Picayune


reported, hours before your com-
pany sent home a team of experts
hired to test the well's cement lin-
ing without letting them per-
form the test that would have
prevented the spill.
Of the many lessons Hurricane
Katrina taught me, two stand out
First, while infrastructure dam-
age can be quickly and easily
measured, measuring the true
economic impact of a disaster is
a complex, often years-long
Second, in time even the
strongest entity (be it the federal
government, nonprofit agencies,
or, in this case, BP) wearies of its
responsibility for a disaster and
begins to shift blame and mini-
mize damages.
Taken in combination, these
two truths delivered a knockout
punch to businesses in Gulf
coastal areas. When, post-Kat-
rina, Congress considered legis-
lation that would compensate for
business and other losses the
"soft cost" of a catastrophe it
gave people hope. But Congress
required solid, statistical infor-
mation, and the information gath-
ered was always anecdotal,
piecemeal and unorganized. This


lack of information, combined
with the growing "Katrina fa-
tigue" inside the Washington belt-
way (truth No. 2), disheartened
those whose livelihoods had been
destroyed or placed on hold.
Many Gulf residents believe BP
will do what Washington did im-
mediately after Katrina stop
writing checks or, worse, write
one big one and skip town. As a
former member of the Louisiana
Recovery Authority-
the state's agency re-
sponsible for the re-
covery and rebuilding
- j plans post Katrina, I
saw it happen. Trust
I-.- me, their fears are jus-
This time, though,
the Greater New Or-
leans Foundation
mna (GNO, Inc.) has al-
zile ready startedogather-
IER ing the empirical data
CES needed to provide a
comprehensive, func-
tional overview of the full eco-
nomic impact of this disaster. The
information will come from
everyone affected: the fishermen,
the charter boat captains, the
seafood processors, the restau-
rants, hotels and cab drivers -
every business and wage earner
that has been or will be harmed
by the largest oil spill in Ameri-
can history.
GNO has also promised to en-
gage a third party to create an as-
sessment procedure. This
procedure should prevent any re-
sponsible party, be it BP or the
federal government, from deny-
ing economic damages, regard-
less of how long it takes for the
impact to fully play out
The more we can avoid anec-
dote and broad economic model-
ing in favor of hard data acquired
as the impact unfolds, the better
chance we have to ensure that
people are truly "made whole" or
compensated for their losses, as
has been promised by BP officials.
In a recent press release, GNO
President and CEO Michael
Hecht made important observa-
tions that bear repeating here:
For slow-moving events like
an oil leak, "it is important to


start measuring early, when the
impacts and evidence are fresh,
to gather empirical as opposed to
just theoretical data."
It is important to consider
not only losses to date but also the
net present value of future losses;
for example, future tourism
losses due to damage to the New
Orleans brand.
Data is important in ground-
ing requests for assistance. (As a
counter example, Louisiana's re-
quest for $200 billion in post-Kat-
rina federal aid was big on ideas
but lacked financial underpinning).
Estimating loss is complex.
For the oil leak, challenges in-
clude understanding the exact
amount of oil leaked, the toxicity
and effects of oil dispersants, and
the persistence of the oil and oil
residues in the marshes and on
the beaches, which may not be
known for years.
Financial compensation is"
difficult Providing financial
compensation that is fair, expedi-
tious and ultimately helps the in-
tended recipient become
financially whole and "restored"
is a challenge. Moreover, finan-
cial assistance must often be cou-
pled with other business
technical assistance as well as
psychological assistance.
State officials should partner
with GNO, gaining a handle on
the full dimensions of the catas-
trophe. Only then will they have
the information needed to seek
fair compensation and prioritize
where to focus assistance efforts.
And of course, President Obama
must hold BP responsible for the
financial toll on the region and
None of us will ever forget the
devastation, the horror and the
humiliation of hurricane Katrina.
We all want our lives to return to
normal. As a first step, BP can
help ensure we can foot the bills
for the losses we have suffered.

Capitalism run amok
Not much attention was given
to thousands of workers, political
activists, unemployed, homeowners
and union members who marched
on Wall Street to express their
anger over government bailouts
of financial institutions on April
29. National televised news car-
ried three-minute segments of
the march. Most newspapers
gave no indication that a march
even occurred. The New York
Times and Washington Post gave
front-page coverage of the event.
This definitely is a story that
should have gotten more space.
The demonstrators earlier in the
day marched on Manhattan banks
in midtown New York They jus-
tifiably blamed the banks for
homeowner foreclosures, high
unemployment, they were angry
over the greedy Wall Street busi-
nesses who give themselves huge
bonuses at the expanse of the
taxpayers. The demonstrators
demanded financial reforms,
breaking up the large banks,
consumer protection from banks
and credit card companies.
A few days later, marchers
protested against Washington's

These lobbyists often write bills
favoring their corporations and
pay legislatures to submit them.
Some of the rally crowd even
demonstrated in front of the
homes of CEOs.
Capitalism has run amok
within the past 10 years. Corpo-
rations such as oil, banking, min-
ing, manufacturing and
agribusiness have a death grip
on the middle class. Today's
workers are being paid lower
wages, shorter working hours
and no retirement pensions.

The most important place
demonstrations should have
gone to, but didn't was the U.S.
Capitol. Both political parties
have their hands out to be
greased by corporations, thus
letting corporations run America.

Church culpability
Why is it when cases of pe-
dophile priests were reported to
the police, and these allegations
were investigated and some
proven true, the district attor-
neys didn't prosecute those
guilty and also the church hier-
archy covering this up?
Luckily, our area has had no
such problems. What happened
to those children will stay with
them for the rest of their lives.
The church should be responsi-
ble for psychiatric care for the
victims financially.
Also, what is sad is that the
very many decent, caring priests
have been given a black eye in
the public in general because
they practice celibacy.

The fellow with a 'sucker' sign on his forehead

Before I retired, I'd
worked in the busi-
ness of banking all of
my adult life, some 47 years.
I liked some banking duties
better than others. One of
the jobs I didn't particularly
like was lending money. The
lending part wasn't so bad,
but collecting when folks
didn't pay wasn't any fun at
all and I had to deal with it
much too often because I
was a soft touch. It was al-
most as though I had a neon
sign affixed to my forehead
which continually flashed
the word "sucker" in bright
red letters.

Helping the homeless
I agree with "Cruel Reality" that
it is time we do something about
the homeless. School is soon to be

out and who will feed the chil-
dren? Who will take care of the
children if the single parent can
get a job? Homeless do not get the
newspaper, so how can they find
out where there is help?
I hope each and every church
has a committee to address this
problem. I know they feed them
every week, but how do the home-
less get there?
I am sure there are enough vol-
unteers if they knew what to do
and where. Could we have some
phone numbers?
The old school in Hernando
does a lot, but what? Tell the pub-
lic what they do and what they
need. Mostly housing is needed.
How many shelters? Where does a
young couple with kids go when
they have no house?
Please do not put this on hold. It
has been on hold for too long.
Believe it or not, there are peo-
ple in houses who have no food.
Some people need help to get on
food stamps or to get to food
Tell the public what kind of help

people like this in our gov-
ernment who can listen? I
think we should put them
all out and just go around
and get people average,
everyday working people,
not politicians to be put
up in the White House and
into our state, also. We'd all
be better off because no-
body else has any common
sense, none of the politi-
cians. So let's try this.
Work together
Even scarier than the
problem of illegal immigra-
tion are the bitter and angry
hearts of Americans who all
seem to be losing their
minds. This country will suf-
fer until people start work-
ing together, respecting our
government and having

Why doesn't anyone see
that the Arizona immigra-

something very scary? The
law allows people who are

what America is all
about. While illegal

the solution. What

South of the border
I was reading Sound Off
this morning (June 1).
There are still several peo-
ple concerned about the
Mexican immigration to the
southern states. I would
point out that the number
of unemployed people in
America is 9.9 percent and
Mexico 4.8 percent, as re-
ported in "The Economist."
Why are they coming to
America when obviously
there must be several more

The reason the unemploy-

they said they could not

know why the sheriff's office
could not transport them to

tired law enforcement officer
and he transported many
people when they weren't
available to come and pick
them up. I think something
needs to be done about that.

4. Choose your friends
wisely. Hang around with
people who have good
goals, who want to make a
decent mark in this world.
There was a great com-
mercial on TV (I can't re-
member what product it
was for) where one guy in
a group of wild young peo-
ple gets a suit-and-tie job,
so the others always want
him to buy dinner, because
they aren't doing a thing.
You will undoubtedly en-
counter some of these stu-
dents steer clear and be
your own person. Some
years later, these will be
the students who will come
to you begging for a job.
5. Stay active. There will

chance that a major hurri-
cane will hit the Gulf Coast.
On Thursday, the Na-
tional Oceanic and Atmos-
pheric Administration
predicted 14 to 23 tropical
storms this year, including
up to seven major hurri-
canes. "This season could
be one of the more active on
record," agency Administra-
tor Jane Lubchenco said.
Hurricane season began
June 1 and runs through
November. Early season
storms are uncommon; the

come a time in your life
when you can't exercise
like you used to but that
day isn't here yet for most
of you. I'm afraid that we
are producing a genera-
tion of computer-chair po-
tatoes (as opposed to
couch potatoes), those who
do nothing but sit in front
of a computer screen for
all their free time. Get out
and do something. You can
walk, you can run, you can
play a sport, you can swim
- just do something. It's
good for your mind and
your body.
6. Volunteer in the com-
munity. There are all sorts
of things that need doing.
Some involve some physi-
cal work; others involve
using your brains to help
people. Give something
back to the community -
show that you care. You

August through October.
Stronger storms typically
form during this time, like
Katrina did in August of
A hurricane like Katrina
"would be a worst-case sce-
nario" with oil pushed far
ashore, said National
Wildlife Federation scien-
tist Doug Inkley.

birds and other animals,"
Inkley said. "It's virtually

It could well be August
before the current leak is
stanched. After several
failed attempts to contain it,
BP has been siphoning
some of the oil through a
mile-long tube, but more
continues to escape. BP is
drilling another well to re-
lieve pressure from the leak
in hopes of a permanent fix,
but that could take weeks.
And oil rigs are often
evacuated ahead of hurri-
canes, which would interrupt

return. And don't do it for
the glory and the recogni-
tion. The best volunteers
are those who work behind
the scenes, who get noth-
ing out of it but personal

those containment efforts.
"It wouldn't take a hurri-
cane to create a mess, even
a tropical storm could cause
problems," said William
Hawkins, director the Uni-
versity of Southern Missis-
sippi's Gulf Coast research
A hurricane could also push
the oil in a new direction.
"I think what worries us
most is the hurricane taking
oil to areas that probably
wouldn't be hit hard other-

7. Finally, keep the faith,
and not just religious faith.
If you are a religious per-
son, you will be tested.
Most of those who are reli-
gious find great solace in
that faith, so don't let your-
self get tempted away from
it. But there is another
kind of faith; faith in your
fellow human beings, faith
in the country. Be aware of
the times you live in, for
sure, but realize there are
so many places in the
world that are worse off
than we are.
While we live in the fear
that there could be another
attack on us somewhere in
the U.S., there are people
who live with the very real
fear of being blown up
every day. While we have
medical care available to
us when we get sick, there
are people who succumb to

handle and Texas," said
Gregory Stone, director of
the Coastal Studies Institute
at LSU.
Bastardi said that in the
near term at least, the
storms themselves remain
the chief threat
"If a Category 3 hurricane
is headed to the Texas Gulf
Coast and this is simply
theoretical I wouldn't be
worried as much about
damage from the oil, as the
damage from the hurri-
cane," Bastardi said.

what they do, but almost

Brown-Waite's seat: And now there are two

Those who follow local
politics have proba-
bly heard by now the
manner in which U.S. Rep.
Ginny Brown-Waite, R-
Spring Hill, announced she
would not seek re-election.
On the final day for an in-
dividual to qualify to run for
Congress, minutes before
the official deadline, she
made the announcement on
April 30 citing health con-
cerns, and also threw her
support behind Hernando
County Sheriff Richard Nu-
Brooksville resident
Jason Sager had entered the
race a few days earlier to
represent the 5th District of
Florida by garnering the re-
quired petition signatures

instead of paying the $10,000
fee. So instead of Republi-
can incumbent vs. upstart
tea party activist, he will
square off against Brown-
Waite's handpicked heir ap-
Sager recently stopped by
the Chronicle to chat about
his campaign. He graduated
from Hernando High
School in Brooksville in '92,
joined the Navy and went
on to a career as an
audio/video engineer. He
said he is taking a break
from that right now to be a
full-time candidate.
Sager said he is proud to
have qualified by petition,
and that more than 50 per-
cent of those signatures
came from Citrus County.

He said he had a trying
time dealing with political
leadership in the area and
that entering the race was a
politically incor-
rect move.
"I believe peo-
ple should al-
ways have a
choice," he said.
Since Brown-
Waite an-
nounced her
support for Nu-
gent, Sager said Cheri
he has gained GUI
more friends
and fundraising COL
has increased.
"I think a lot of people are
now pleased," he said.

King's Bay cannot be used as a dumping ground

Special to the Chronicle
I just want the chance to
say something about the
hard work my husband,
Capt. Mike Dunn, did to
make sure that removal of
the derelict boats on May 27
went smoothly. It's unfortu-
nate that many who did so
little got so much of the at-
tention and thanks, but
there were two individuals
who were the backbone for
this project: Capt. Mike
Dunn and Sheriff's Deputy
Andy Cox. These two men
worked diligently to make
sure that all "i's" were dot-
ted and "t's" crossed, and
that the boats were able to
be removed without harm to
the environment
Years back my husband
used to say to me, "These
abandoned boats make the
bay look so littered, they

need to be removed."
Other areas of Florida
that we've lived and trav-
eled in by boat did not have
these kinds of problems.
One day as he complained
to me again I simply turned
to him and said, "Well get
started." And he did.
His many years back in
Georgia doing search and
recovery and salvage jobs
including bringing to the
surface boats, helicopters
and the unfortunate corpse,
gave him the expertise to
talk to the Crystal River City
Council and push to get our
bay cleaned up.
These derelict boats have
been in our bay for years
and have become an eye-
sore as the weather and sun
slowly deteriorated them. A
third boat, which no one
mentioned and a real eye-
sore, was also removed fi-
nally by the owner, the

special to the Chronicle

trimaran. Its holes on the
outside were large enough a
body could fit through and
might have become another
boat to be raised and sal-
vaged if the county and city
hadn't taken proper chan-
nels and had it removed.

This was Deputy Cox's area
of expertise.
I also want to mention
that to salvage a sunken or
submerged boat is not easy
and not cheap. My husband,
who also works for TowBoa-
tUS in Crystal River, asked

TowboatUS owner Larry
Tieman (American Marine
Services) if he would donate
the use of the boat and
pumps to help in this event
Capt. Bob Bell, also with
TowboatUS/CR, donated his
time, too. I feel that there
was not enough said about
this donation which would
have cost approximately
$7,500 or more if it were a
paying job and that's just to
deliver the salvaged shrimp
boat to the pier for disposal.
My husband also spent
many days prior to this
event and volunteered many
hours to make this event run
smoothly He and Deputy
Cox worked very hard and
because of their hard work
and knowledge, this event
took place without any prob-
lems. My husband is not one
to toot his own horn, so I'm
doing it for him.
The city, county, Aquatics

Services, sheriff's officials
and many others already
mentioned in the articles
and pictures that first came
out also worked hard. But
this was a joint effort of
many and some got left out
or mentioned ever so slightly,
as far as I'm concerned.
Lastly, our bay cannot be
used as a boat dumping
ground. Boats abandoned
and left here to rot need to
be taken out as soon as pos-
sible and I believe now that
these first derelict boats
have been removed, it'll be
easier and quicker to take
care of any future boats that
may become derelict
More folks in the city of
Crystal River and Citrus
County need to step up to
the plate on issues needing
to be addressed and recti-
fied. Get involved.
Let's keep King's Bay


Letters to THE EDITOR

Government and religion
The old saying is that govern-
ment and religion don't mix, or
politics and religion don't mix.
But a closer look reveals just the
opposite is true. One look at our
current, corrupt political envi-
ronment shows the need for in-
If we can accept that religion
represents traditional moral val-
ues of honor, truth, honesty and,
more specifically, respecting oth-
ers, not lying, not bearing false
witness, honoring family, not
murdering physically or with
words, not coveting, and control-
ling your lusts and desires, why
would we not want our govern-
ment and politicians to honor
these values when they make de-
cisions? These are the things that
define integrity and character
When would we not want gov-
ernment and politicians to ex-
hibit this moral integrity and
Because the citizens and reli-
gious people have forgotten that
God ordained government to en-
force His commands for righteous
living and have not held their gov-
ernment and politicians account-
able to these moral values, our
government is more immoral
than moral and ever emboldened
by a lack of outrage or challenge

by the people. Because the reli-
gious community has abdicated
their mandate, we all lose. The re-
ligious leaders have accepted this
separation theory and do not
challenge immoral behavior by
government and politicians, thus
they become conformed to the
world by default and the world is
the worse for it
The liberals and progressives
have no base to determine moral
values because they consider
them a moving target. What was
immoral one day becomes moral
the next because it was wrong
when someone else was doing it
but OK when they are doing it.
The founding fathers clearly
stated that without a moral people,
the constitutional republic they
developed will not last We are now
at that point. If the people do not
vote their moral beliefs this No-
vember, our republic may be lost
Donald Holcomb

Declare emergency
Dear Sen. Nelson,
It's my opinion that we need to
declare a national emergency and
move enough manpower and
equipment onto the Gulf Coast,
Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Mis-
sissippi and Florida so that we

can effectively deal with the ex-
isting oil problem and stop this
half-hearted pussy-footing around!
It's sad to think that we can send
a man to the moon, and that BP
doesn't have the intelligence to cap
a well. I trust that you will not rest
until a thorough investigation has
been done and that the responsi-
ble parties are behind bars.

Amnesty is not a fix
The Arizona law properly em-
phasizes enforcement while up-
holding the Constitution and
basic principles of human de-
cency Washington has been ig-
noring the immigration issue for
decades. This ongoing invasion
has resulted in thousands of in-
nocent deaths per year in Ari-
zona and other border states.
Not all illegal immigrants are
criminals, but we cannot con-
tinue to ignore certain facts. The
Federal Bureau of Prisons be-
lieves that 30 percent of crimi-
nals in federal prisons are illegal
immigrants, costing Americans $3
million per day. Each day, ap-
proximately 93 sex offenders and
12 serial sex offenders cross the
U.S. border, according Deborah
Schurman-Kauflin, Ph.D., Violent

Crimes Institute. Nearly one mil-
lion sex crimes have been com-
mitted by illegal immigrants in
this country. Age doesn't seem to
matter Twelve to 14 Americans
die every day at the hands of an
illegal criminal, and half are chil-
dren. Murder, rape, violence and
kidnapping, while down in some
border states, are still occurring
at an alarming rate in others. Be-
cause of the promise of amnesty,
more criminals are coming here
courtesy of Obama, John McCain
and the bleeding hearts that want
to put everyone at risk with their
wailing about racial profiling.
American lives are being de-
stroyed because of this invasion
that remains unchecked. The
lack of enforcement is a serious
issue and it will help bring about
even more violence.
Open borders, the lack of strict
immigration policy and/or en-
forcement are devastating our
societal fabric, creating serious
national identity issues, weaken-
ing our national security, devas-
tating families, and costingtaxpayers
billions. We need to control our
borders and stop illegal immigra-
tion now. Our survival is at stake.
Amnesty should not be an option
because it doesn't fix the problem.

a bribe and thrown out of office.
One can only imagine how much
more trouble he would have got-
ten into if Linda hadn't been
there trying to control things.
When she came back to Citrus
County she worked at the Key
Training Center and it was
Linda who helped develop the
annual Run for the Money cam-
paign that still helps fund the fa-
cility today. She grew the Run
for the Money week and associ-
ated auction into the most im-
portant fund-raising activity of
the year in Citrus County. But
again, Linda did her work be-
hind the scenes and was always
bolstering the leadership of the
Key's Chet Cole.
When Pete Kelly got elected
superintendent of schools for
Citrus County, Linda went to work
as the director of the county's
newly created Education Foun-
dation. She helped raise hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars in
contributions for public educa-
tion and grew the annual
Teacher of the Year event into a
very big deal. The Education
Foundation still continues today
as an important organization.
Again, Linda used her forceful
personality to get the business
and professional community in-
volved in our schools. But Linda
did her work behind the scenes
in the name of Superintendent
Pete Kelly
When Pete Kelly lost his re-
election bid, Linda came back to
our newspaper company to
work. This time she located in
Dunnellon at the Riverland
News. While she never wrote a
news story for the paper, she was
the driving force behind the
paper. She kept the office organ-
ized and made lots of good
things happen in the community.
Funny thing is that I really
wanted Linda to come back and
work at the Chronicle, but she
was more comfortable working
in a small town and Dunnellon
fit the bill.
But she did things behind the
scenes, and she always did them
in my name and in the name of
our company.
Linda Miller was never elected
to public office or took a high-
profile public position. But for
the last four decades she has been
a woman of force in Citrus County,
Washington and Dunnellon.
Linda deserves her retire-
ment, but the winds will blow
with a little less force now that
she has stepped away.

... -.-7--- Sound OFF

Crist's true form
It gladdens my heart that the
real Charlie Crist has finally come
out to play. I only wonder how
much different and better a state
Florida would be if he stopped
kowtowing to the renegade right-
wing Legislature years earlier.
Politics does indeed make
strange bedfellows, but even bet-
ter divorces.

Bosses' bucks
At a recent social gathering, we
were discussing the views of the
members of Citrus County's
commissioners. When someone
asked if anyone knew the com-
missioners' salaries, we all drew
a blank. I checked the BOCC
website without success. Does
anyone know where I can find this

Do not ingest
About the mothballs: I called
the sheriff's department and they
told me that it's not illegal or un-
lawful to use mothballs. I called
the agriculture department and
wildlife; mothballs are not harm-
ful to animals. Humans, however,
they are harmful if you eat them.
So stay out of my back yard and
do not eat my mothballs.

To "Welcome Olive Garden":
How do you compare a sit-down
restaurant to a drive-through fast-
food place? Arby's, Chick-fil-A -
those are fast-food places. If you
want to be in paradise, have
some decent restaurants. Long-
horn? Yes, I agree with you.

Who will help?

and shrimp that come in, they're
going to be out of work. Then the
restaurants are going to be out of
work. Then the people who have
the motels are going to be out of
work and everyone else is going
to be out of work. Who else but
the government is going to help
them? You tell me. Will it be the
Tea Party? Who is going to do it
but the government? Wake up,

Where's it at?
This is in response to Sunday's

Who else but the government is Sound Off, "Gassing up," and
going to be there when all these they talked about the non-ethanol
fishermen are out of work? And gas being 20 cents more a gal-
when they're out of work, the Ion. Please tell me where you can
people that work the docks and find it. I would gladly pay 20
store all of the fish and oysters cents more a gallon to use it in

my boat and my small two-cycle
engines, like my tractor and weed
eater equipment. Maybe list a list
of gas stations that carry it.
Play nice
I'm calling in reference to the
editorial "Hospital boards wast-
ing time and money on dispute."
The foundation and the board of
trustees need to learn to get to-
gether, play along. They're spend-
ing all this money, $1.2 million in
legal fees, while the patients are
suffering, the staff is underpaid
and they are understaffed. Con-
centrate on the staff and the pa-
tients at the hospital rather than
concentrating on who is to win in
this situation. This is totally

Remember the living
They showed on TV soldiers
placing little flags on every single
of those white crosses in the na-
tional cemeteries. It doesn't do
the remembered any good. I
think they should have sent the
president or something out to the
soldiers that are in battle right
now, in memory of those that
we're remembering, that we
make someone's living life in the
war better in memory of some-
one who died for our country.

Higher prices
I was just wondering why the
gasoline prices, starting in Geor-
gia all the way up to Ohio, are
$2.45 a gallon and they're still

between $2.79 and $2.90 a gal-
lon here in Citrus County. Trust
me, commissioners, this will
come back to bite you during the
election not only this year, but
every year thereafter.
It's socialism
To the person who claimed So-
cial Security is not socialism: Do
you really think that you paid in
all you get back? The same with
Medicare. What was taken out of
your paycheck is so small com-
pared to what you get back, espe-
cially if you live many years after
you retire. Where do you think the
money comes from? Our govern-
ment. If everyone who gets So-
cial Security only got what they
paid into Social Security, the sys-
tem would not be in the trouble
that it is in. Maybe the solution is
to only give the people exactly
what they .paid in, of course with
some interest, because if you ac-
cept money from the government
that you did not pay in, this is so-
Help in hard times
What a change of venue. Bobby
Jindal, the governor of Louisiana,
and the other governors of the
coastal states all of those Re-
publicans have been screaming
and hollering, "Butt out, United
States, we don't want any part of
federal this or federal that, no
federal aid, no nothing." But now
that this disaster has happened,
they're pleading and begging on
their knees, "Please help us, we
need help, send troops, send
money, send food, send every-
thing." Yeah, those people, those
right-wing hardliners, they will
never ever learn until a disaster
hits them smack in the face.
Then maybe they will learn to
keep their mouths shut about the
federal government, because
without it, we would have noth-

Associated Press
This July 2007 photo shows a view of the Cathar city of Minerve in southern France. The picture-pretty town of Minerve with its stone houses and narrow alleys is part of
the "Plus Beaux Villages de France," a group of the country's most picturesque villages.

Car trip enjoyable through calmer, more pastoral parts of country

Associated Press
or anyone watching
the Tour de France
bike race on
television, the images
of mountain pastures,village
spires and monuments are
often as good as the race itself.

So, with all due respect to Lance Armstrong and
his fellow slaves of the road, my wife and I decided to
pack our kids in the car and make our own Tour de

France one that Armstrong can't have.
For three weeks in high summer, we made a huge
loop through France, from the east on down to Bur-
gundy and beyond, south along the Rhone wine val-
ley before crossing through the Midi, as southern
France is called. Slowly, we then made our way up
the Atlantic side to our final destination in
Fontevraud, among the opulent Loire castles of
France's kings.
We never missed the cities or traffic jams. We
craved neither overpriced parking tickets, nor the
surly city waiters serving meals where the only thing
resembling a Michelin-starred restaurant is the bill.
Yet sidestepping places like Paris and Bordeaux
robbed our trip of nothing French whatsoever au
One evening, for example, we finished a four-
course meal around the inner courtyard of the me-

Suddenly we found ourselves among actors rehears-
ing a church play, and otherwise had the vast Ro-
manesque treasure to ourselves. Soon we were
roving around towering pillars and the tombs of
Plantagenets Henry II, Richard the Lionheart and
Eleanor of Aquitaine.
Other days, we traveled pleasant tree-lined roads
to hotels or farm rentals in the villages of Provence,

These apps will help you

conquer fear of flying

Associated Press
As family, friends and that woman who
sat next to me on my last flight all know,
I'm a nervous flyer. My anxiety has gotten
better over the years I don't weep
openly anymore but I still get sweaty
palms and a racing heartbeat upon take-
off. When the engine noise changes, I go
on high alert. On long-haul flights, I rarely
So I'm always on the lookout for any-
thing that might ease my anxi-
ety. I've downloaded guided
meditations for my iPod,
brought along fear of flying self-
help books and tried to keep
myself occupied with a Game-
Boy Those have all worked,
with varying success.
But now that I travel with an
iPad, I've found a couple of apps
that help.
One is called "Flying Without Fear," pro-
duced by a company called Mental Work-
out in conjunction with Virgin Airlines.
(Mental Workout has several well-de-
signed lifestyle apps, many centered on
meditation and well-being).
Formatted for the iPhone, this $4.99 app
was easy to use on my iPad and even
looked snazzy. It's a condensed version of
Virgin's real-life "Fear of Flying" course.
Using videos, audio meditations and even
a Q-and-A with such queries as "What is
turbulence?" and "What happens if both
engines fail?" this app tries to allay a jit-
tery flyer's fear while in the air.
I tried it out on a recent flight once the

plane reached 10,000 feet and I could turn
on my iPad. There's an interesting video
narrated by a Virgin pilot which takes you
on a "tour" of a typical flight; there are
also various visualization, meditation and
breathing exercises for specific scenarios,
including links to tap if you are experi-
encing a panic attack at that moment
I listened to the visualization exercise
for the "turbulence" scenario when I was
actually going through turbulence; the
chirping bird-nature soundtrack and the
narrator's deep British accent were defi-
nitely soothing. Many of the
meditations would probably be
more effective if practiced sev-
eral days, or even months, be-
Sfore the flight
Mental Workout promises a
free update to this app soon.
If soothing meditations don't
work, there's another option for
nervous flyers: total distraction.
The iPad app "Tap Tap Radi-
ation" is a touch music game formatted for
the iPad, and it's completely absorbing
and addictive. I once passed an entire
hour on a flight and didn't even notice my
anxiety because I was so absorbed in this
Here's how it works: You tap bubbles in
time with music. Yes, it sounds totally sim-
ple and stupid, but it's really fun. And the
best part: It's free.
Mental Workout and Virgin have an-
other iPhone app worth checking out as
well. Called "Jet Lag Fighter" ($1.99), it
uses clinically proven techniques sleep

W e w ill m ake this right, andcollect most of theleak.

As they do that, BP will continue to take full responsibility for
cleaning up the spill.

We have organized the largest environmental response in this
country's history. More than three million feet of boom, 30 planes
and over 1,300 boats are working to protect the shoreline. When oil
reaches the shore, thousands of people are ready to clean it up.

Thirty teams of specialists are combing the shore along with US
Fish and Wildlife, NOAA and Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries. If
wildlife is affected, rescue stations have been set up to take care
of them. Experts have been flown in from around the country. And
BP has dedicated $500 million to watch over the long-term impact
on marine life and shoreline.

We will honor all legitimate claims. We will continue working
for as long as it takes. And our efforts will not come at any cost
to taxpayers.

We understand that it is our responsibility to keep you informed.
And to do everything we can so this never happens again.

We will get this done. We will make this right.

Vets eligible to win Sears Hometown Store

Special to the Chronicle
When the nation's military he-
roes return from overseas, they
bring with them a strong entre-
preneurial spirit. As a result of
their leadership skills and com-
mitted work ethic, many military
veterans succeed as entrepre-
neurs in the United States. In
light of this, Sears Hometown

Stores in partnership with Maytag
Brand Appliances, has an-
nounced the kick off of the first-
ever "Operation Stores & Stripes"
contest, where one deserving mil-
itary veteran will win his or her
own Sears Hometown Store.
Through June 25, qualified mili-
tary veterans can enter the con-
test online at

"We know that our country's
military veterans are hard work-
ing, committed to success and
have strong entrepreneurial
spirit," said Will Powell, senior
vice president, Hometown Stores.
"This initiative is yet another way
we can give back to our hometown
heroes and show gratitude to
those that have done so much for
us both at home and abroad."
Once the recruitment period
closes, all submissions will be

subject to a preliminary screen-
ing process and qualified candi-
dates will be notified that they
will continue on the second phase
of competition.
Sears Hometown Stores is a
unique retailing concept that
combines the value, selection and
services associated with larger re-
tail stores, but is owned and oper-
ated by a member of the local
community. Sears Hometown
Stores provide a wide assortment
of tools, appliances, electronics,

fitness equipment and lawn and
garden merchandise offered by
Sears Holdings' stores. This for-
mat allows customers in small
communities to have access to the
products and brands usually only
found in Sears stores.
The prize includes the store, li-
cense, merchandise, renovation
and merchandised location, the
first 90 days of lease, as well as 90
days of operating cash flow, in-
cluding several recruiting and
employment programs.

Do we all cheat at game of life? Mom wants girls home

Floyd Landis, the disqualified winner
of the 2006 Tour de France bicycle
race, has admitted that he was tak-
ing performance-enhancing drugs.
For those of you who don't follow the
sport, it's a three-week race with cyclists
biking more than 100 miles a day, many of
those stages taking place in the mountains.
It's a race that makes the Ironman compe-
titions seem like a lazy afternoon of lawn
darts and croquet.
Floyd Landis won the Tour
de France with, for all practi-
cal purposes, a broken hip. I
watched it the day he pulled
away from the lead group and
rode straight up a mountain. It
was one of the most astounding
feats of endurance ever seen.
Now that he's admitted tak-
ing drugs, I just have two ques-
tions. Where can I get some of
that stuff Floyd was taking, and J I
why aren't they giving it to MULL
everyone? What are we, stu-
pid? They keep saying it's bad
for you, that it will stunt your growth, make
you impotent Yet every night we can watch
athletes who have admitted taking PEDs
and Human Growth Hormones. They're
playing pro ball long after their peers have
dropped out, they're dating starlets, they're
making babies and tons of money Gee, I
hate to see them wreck their lives like that.
What were they thinking?
Whoever makes PEDs should be adver-
tising them every night on the news.
"Tired, sluggish, don't have the energy to
fill the dishwasher? Ask your doctor about
Makesmefeelgood. Warning, may cause high
energy levels, increased attention from the
opposite sex, a longer life span and a raise
in pay. Should you experience any of these
symptoms, call your doctor immediately
and ask for more." Isn't this the exact same
thing the "legal" drugs claim to do?
Calling something a performance-en-
hancing drug makes it sound unsportsman-
like. But isn't food a performance
enhancer? It would be hard to play football
if you weren't allowed to eat any protein for

a few weeks before the game. Food obvi-
ously boosts an athlete's performance, yet
the International Olympic Committee re-
fuses to ban it. Or should the athlete with
the healthier diet be banned while the one
who eats bacon-flavored ice cream gets to
play? What about water? Doesn't that up
your game? Yet they give it to all the ath-
letes. At marathons, runners are encour-
aged to drink performance-enhancing
water. Those good-for-nothing cheats.
Don't all the years Floyd Landis
trained and competed count for
something? You could shoot me
full of crack cocaine and ampheta-
mines and zap me with a cattle
prod and I still couldn't have done
what he did in the Tour de France.
I couldn't make it up that hill in a
car. Maybe he wouldn't have won
the race without the drugs, but it's
not like he coasted to the win.
While he was out there training
EN day after day, riding thousands of
miles a year, others sat around the
house eating snack chips and call-
ing sports radio talk shows to complain
about athletes on dope.
"I've lost all respect for them," says the
guy who can't climb a flight of stairs without
stopping to smoke another cigarette.
These are the same fans who go to base-
ball and football games and eat platefuls of
unhealthy nachos washed down with stag-
gering amounts of beer while sitting around
for four hours with no more exercise than
going to the bathroom. Wow, what a bunch
of health nuts they are. They would never
use dope. Except that stuff they take for
their cholesterol, the stuff they take for their
diabetes, the stuff they take for their lower-
back pain, the stuff they take for their gout
and the stuff they take for their ED. Isn't Vi-
agra a performance-enhancing drug? Isn't
that cheating?

In a home filled with
practicing nudists, it is not
unusual or abusive for chil-

naked. But in most homes,
this is not the case.
If Mom is uncomfortable
with the situation, she
should insist her husband

Associated Press
No money? No problem!
Pay with time, instead.
That's what Maria Villacreses
did when the economy put a
hitch in her wedding plans: She
used "time dollars" on everything
from a wedding-day makeover to
an elaborate seven-layer cake.
In a modern twist on the an-
cient practice of barter, people
like Villacreses are joining time
banks to help them get the things
they need or want without having
to spend cash.
In a time bank, members get
credit for services they provide to
other members, from cooking to
housekeeping to car rides to
home repair. For each hour of
work, one time dollar is de-
posited into a member's account,
good for services offered by other
Scores of time banks are being
started in hard-hit communities
around the nation and thou-
sands of devotees are helping
each other survive tough finan-
cial times.
"Even though we were plan-
ning to do something small and
simple, it takes a lot of money,
time and effort. Through time
banking, I got a lot of help," said
Villacreses, who belongs to Com-
munity Exchange, a 10-year-old
time bank in Allentown, where

said previous promotional gim-

Cadmium is a carcinogen that re-
search shows also can cause bone
softening and severe kidney prob-
lems. Research also suggests that it
can, like lead, hinder brain devel-
opment in the very young. The
CPSC said in its recall notice that
long-term exposure to the element
"can cause adverse health effects."
In the case of the Shrek-themed
glassware, the potential danger
would be long-term exposure to low
levels of cadmium, which could
leach onto a child's hand and enter
the body if the child puts that un-
washed hand to his or her mouth.
Michael Wilcox is among those
concerned about the recalled

Wilcox said.
He said the recall also makes him
"a little more curious" about other
McDonald's items such as the toys
in Happy Meals. "I don't know
what's going on with some of this
stuff," he said.
Arc is a French company with a
plant in New Jersey; its origins as a
glassmaker date to 1825. The com-
pany said that it has been making
glasses for McDonald's for 15 years

Fundraiser puts Gulf seafood on the menu

Associated Press

BERKELEY, Calif. Eat
a shrimp, support a Gulf of
Mexico fisherman. That's the
thinking behind the "Dine
Out for the Gulf Coast" cam-
paign in which restaurants
across the country will be
putting a little fish philan-
thropy on the menu.
During the event, sched-
uled for June 10-12, partici-
pating restaurants will be
donating to the Gulf Coast Oil
Spill Fund. Restaurants that
are able to, also will feature
seafood from the Gulf.
"It's good that we establish
a conversation on the mean-
ing of something like this,"
says chef and restaurateur
Jose Andres, who is partici-
pating in the event at all his
restaurants, including The
Bazaar in Los Angeles and
Jaleo in Washington.
The campaign was started
by Jimmy Galle, founder of
Gulfish LP, a small company
based in Sausalito that sup-
plies Gulf seafood to restau-
rants in Northern California.
Galle, a native of Texas,
said he "felt compelled to do
something. I spent my sum-
mers on those coastal shores.
It's where I'm from, so it's
very personal."

Unlike bartering, trans-
actions in time banking
are not usually reciprocal.
Instead, Jane baby-sits for
John, John fixes Mary's
leaky faucet, Mary drives
Tom to the doctor's office,
and so on, all of them earn-
ing and spending time dol-
lars. Their labor is valued
equally: One hour is al-
ways worth one time dol-
lar. (Time dollars are not
taxable, according to Time
Banks USA.)
People often join for
economic reasons but
wind up getting more out
of it. Among the benefits:
networking, getting to
know neighbors, building a
sense of community and
keeping skills sharp.
"Part of it is very practi-
cal," said Judith Lasker, a
professor at Lehigh Uni-
versity in Bethlehem who
is co-writing a book on
time banking. "There's an-
other part of it that's very
ideological. People be-
lieve the best way to sur-
vive in this crazy,
unpredictable world is to
forge local ties, support
local economies ... and
support local people in a
variety of ways."

are still being worked out.
Some restaurants will do-
nate a portion of overall prof-
its; others will donate based
on sales of specific dishes or
cocktails. And since fresh
seafood supplies fluctuate-
and not all the participating
restaurants specialize in
seafood it's not clear how
many will be serving food
from the Gulf.
The point, says Galle, is to
support the industry and let
diners know it's OK to eat
Gulf seafood.
"Those guys are facing so
much turmoil and such an
uncertain future," he said of
the region's seafood industry.
"If the consumer turns away
from consumption of Gulf
seafood, it's kind of like a
final nail in the coffin."
It's not clear what the oil
spill, which began following
an April 20 oil rig explosion
that also killed 11 workers,
will mean for the region's
fishing industry or for the
restaurant industry that re-
lies on it
Commercial fishermen in
the Gulf of Mexico caught
more than 1 billion pounds of
seafood in 2008 for about
$659 million in revenue, ac-
cording to the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration. Many esti-
mates put the Gulf Coast as

ethic, says Peternell, chef of
the restaurant's upstairs
cafe. Waters also has a close
tie to the area, having
founded one of her Edible
Schoolyards in New Orleans.

Peternell might be worried
about buying fish from the
Gulf these days if he weren't
using a trusted supplier,
Galle, who is keeping cus-
tomers informed about clo-
sures and sending maps
showing which fishing
grounds produced the fish
being sold.
Galle says he's "still seeing
beautiful product on a daily
basis." He hopes consumers
and restaurants will con-
tinue to support the industry
beyond the June campaign.
"They're all hard-working
fishermen and they just want
to keep living the life that
they love. It's not just about
fishing. That whole coast is
their social fabric," he says.
"It's where they work, it's
what they eat, it's where they
live, it's where they play. It's
kind of like their family jewel
that they really hold very
dearly and want to pass on to
future generations."
The Greater New Orleans
Foundation created the Gulf
Coast Oil Spill Fund to help
the communities hit hardest
by the spill. It also is meant to
help strengthen coastal com-
munities against future envi-
ronmental catastrophes. It is
estimated that there are
6,400 licensed commercial
fishermen in the region that
could be affected by the spill.

(Followed by an hour of individual counseling)

The seminar will be held at the Citrus
Campus College of Central Florida
in Lecanto, (building L4, room 103)

The Citrus County Chapter of SCORE is offering a free
seminar for individuals thinking about starting their
own business.
The two hour session will cover the main issues
involved in becoming an entrepreneur from the
business idea to the reality of owning your own
business. Following the seminar, interested participants
will have the opportunity to meet with seasoned
SCORE counselors to further discuss their ideas.
"R U Ready" is specifically designed for individuals
who are not business owners, but who are interested in
learning what is involved in becoming one. If you have
ever asked yourself "do I have what it takes to be an
entrepreneur?" then this seminar is for you!

A one hour counseling session will follow for those
interested in meeting with a SCORE counselor.
For more information and to register for the
seminar, please contact Jeremy Moyes at SCORE

cured by the owner's income
instead of the corporation's

cent years. I've made phone

- E.G., via e-mail
DEAR E.G.: There are lots
of credit card companies
looking for accounts such as
yours. I am not at all clear
why you are having a prob-
lem. It is true with the new
regulations credit issuers
are being more selective in
how a card is granted.
The one thing you did not
say was the volume on these
cards. I cannot imagine that
a company such as Ameri-
can Express, who advertises
vigorously for business ac-
counts, would not have a
number of suggestions as to
what would be appropriate
for your company. If you
have not contacted them, I

would give them a call, but
the volume here is going to
be a factor.
If you are only spending a
couple of hundred bucks a
month on each card and you
are paying it off, there is no
interest being generated.
The average credit card
company will have little or
no interest in you. Those that
