N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS In the July 11, 1957, edition of the Citrus County Chronicle the editorial read: This is a day to be remembered in Citrus County the day we dedicated our new hospital. New lives will begin there, the sick will be made well, and a haven will be waiting for the victims of sudden accidents. It is reassuring to know these things. Yes, it certainly is a day to remember. It was a day Joe Brannen remembers well.

He said he saw the shooter, Mark Davidson, 60, standing in the front yard of the home at 6439 Riverbend Road. I came out I saw him, but I didnt see any weapon, Thonen said. I saw him standing there arguing, yelling, so I went in and called 911. When I came out it was too late. Thonen said he saw three people laying in the front yard. He immediately went back inside his home to wake up his wife, who is a nurse. According to a Citrus County Sheriffs Office report, deputies arrived at the scene shortly afterward and found Davidson and Leona Field, 63, with fatal gunshot wounds and another man injured. A close friend, Steven Snowman, 66, of Inverness, was on the ground by the driveway of the home with wounds to the head. Emergency responders pronounced Davidson and Field dead at the scene. Field suffered two gunshot wounds to the head and neck area, according to the police report. Sheriffs detectives are investigating the incident as an apparent murder-suicide and said a handgun was recovered in the front yard of the couples home where Davidson had turned the gun on himself.

The former Inverness city councilwoman and member of the Citrus County Historical Society is one of the many residents and business owners in Inverness who see the communitys past as a vital part of its future. When she and her physician husband Gustavo Fonseca moved here in 1998, Diaz-Fonseca saw Inverness as a place with character and a respect for history and culture. I started working with the historical society, restoring the Old Courthouse, she said. She bought the Masonic Building in 2006 for $1.1 million. Her bandwagon is the restoration and not demolition of the old buildings around the area. Weve got Cracker style, Victorian style, Gothic Revival. What we need are incentives for people to take some of these old buildings and create commercial ventures. Things like that keep the character of a town, she said.

D AVIDE SPO AP Special CorrespondentWASHINGTON Ending a perilous stalemate, President Barack Obama and congressional leaders announced agreement Sunday night on an emergency deal to avert the nations first-ever financial default. The arrangement would cut more than $2 trillion from federal spending over a decade. The dramatic agreement, with scant time remaining before Tuesdays deadline, will allow us to avoid default and end the crisis that Washington imposed on the rest of America, Obama said. Default would have had a devastating effect on our economy, the president said at the White House, relaying the news to the nation and financial markets around the world. He thanked the leaders of both parties. House Speaker John Boehner telephoned Obama at mid-evening to say the agreement had been struck, officials said. No votes were expected in either house of Congress until Monday at the earliest, to give rank-and-file lawmakers time to review the package. But leaders in both parties were already beginning the work of rounding up votes.

Damage set at $75,500 C ATHYK APULKA Staff WriterA fire broke out Saturday evening at the home of Elizabeth Weeks at 9432 W. Yulee Drive in Homosassa. According to authorities, five engines and a rescue vehicle were dispatched to the single-story home where the fire was under control by 7:22 p.m. One firefighter was transported to Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center in Crystal River for heat related issues. No structural damage was reported, although there was moderate fire damage and significant smoke damage throughout the house. Damage was estimated at $75,000. Field very well, and the couple had been living together for the past two years and were not married. He said Field told him earlier in the day she was going to ask Davidson to leave. The relationship was over, he said. She had told us several times that she was going to get him out. The neighbor believed Davidson wanted to stay in the relationship with Field. I guess he went berserk, he said. Field worked as a land valuation specialist with the Citrus County Property Appraisers Office. Davidson previously worked for the same office but was let go in 2009 when Geoffe Greene won the election and took office. Former Citrus County Property Appraiser Melanie Hensley said Sunday night she knew the couple. She said Field was very good at what she did. She was a happy, likable person and she will sorely be missed, she said. Hensley said Davidson also was good at his job. He performed his job extremely well while I was there, she said. Avis Craig, director of public and governmental affairs with the appraisers office, said the entire office is in shock. It is very sad, she said. Just last week she returned from seeing her son and grandchildren in Texas and was showing us pictures of them. It is so tragic. Thonen said he and his family didnt associate with Davidson. We thought he was a little aggressive, he said. Our first impression was really, really bad. He wasnt a friendly type person. However, Thonen spoke highly of Field. She was more than just a neighbor to us, he added. She was a very nice lady. She was special to us. A sheriffs office report said Snowman was airlifted to Shands at the University of Florida hospital in Gainesville for treatment of a head injury and is expected to make a complete recovery. A spokesperson from the hospital said Sunday night Snowman was not listed as a patient. Chronicle Managing Editor Sandra Frederick contributed to this report.

Speaking last week to the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation Board of Directors, Ryan Beaty, the hospitals chief executive officer, said, One of the things youve asked us to look into is not necessarily cancer treatment, but better coordinating and working on organizing the cancer program among the various practices. The hospitals advisory board has been working on the program. It asked George Mavros, director of professional services, to lead it. Mavros reported the programs status to the directors. Mavros said two teams are working together. One team is focused on developing the actual program as it relates to physician practices. The other team would focus on constructing the building to accommodate the program the first team develops. During the past month, we have met with all the physician groups that are potentially involved in this project. All of them, except for one, have enthusiastically embraced the vision and one is considering it at the present time, Mavros said. The teams will meet in early August for the program that is being called the oncology center activities. It is to help the patient through the specialties, diagnostic studies and procedures. A large proponent of this is providing education at the individual level, the family level and the community in general, Mavros said. Organizers also have met with county staff. They are very, very excited about the project, Mavros said. Commissioner Dennis Damato would work with both groups. A meeting has been scheduled with the leaders of the Citrus County Economic Development Council and the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce for their support of the project. A topographic study has been completed for the design and construction phase for the building that would be constructed on the campus of the Allen Ridge Family Care Center. It would be built with money donated by members of the community specifically for an educational and resource center. The hospital would have to determine a way to fund its operation.

CMHS plans cancer resource center 2 groups to work on program and building facility School board tightens budget belt C HERI H ARRIS Staff WriterINVERNESS Helping local schools remain successful in spite of financial adversity is a challenge facing the Citrus County School Board. The tentative budget unanimously approved by board members is designed to cut costs without impacting student success. In a workshop before the vote Tuesday, July 26, Kenny Blocker, assistant superintendent of business and support services for the district, reviewed the budget proposed for the 2011-2012 fiscal year. The tentative $261,691,898 budget is about $32 million less than last years funding, reflecting a cut of nearly 11 percent. In the district budget, the largest fund is the general fund, which is funded through the Florida Education Finance Program (FEFP). The district is on track to receive about $95 million from this program used to pay for operations of the school district. This amount is about $11 million less than last years funding. The board approved the tentative budget as its current operating budget. Blocker told the Chronicle editorial board Wednesday savings on the tentative budget include a decrease of about $1.5 million because of a projected decrease in student enrollment about 200 from this year compared to last year. Blocker said about 60 additional unfilled district-wide vacancies will save about $2 million. Other cuts include about $2 million from measures such as restructuring bus routes, obtaining a new wide area network bid and shifting the cost of some teacher aides and custodians to food service. Weve cut a custodian at every school, Himmel told the editorial board. The district will also save $5 million from teacher contributions to state retirement. For the year ahead, the district will also dip into about $5 million in reserves. Were using that pot to make it through this transition year, Blocker said. FEFP has two sources of funding state and local. The state funding for the 2011-2012 fiscal year is about 36 percent and local funds comprise about 64 percent of FEFP Local dollars support local education two to one over the state budget, Blocker told school board members. Local sources come from property tax funds. Tentative millage rates are 5.5560 local required effort for operating purposes and .748 tentative discretionary millage rate for operating purposes. Combined, FEFP local tax dollars will raise more than $61 million for operations. The state sets the millage rates for these. Local taxes also support the capital fund, including a 1.5-mill capital outlay millage and a .25 critical capital needs millage that voters approved in November. Combined, these funds will raise about $17 million. The total tentative millage rate for schools for the 2011-2012 fiscal year is 8.0540 mills. One mill equals $1 for every $1,000 of taxable property value. A final budget hearing, including millage rates, is set for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13, at the District Services Center, 1007 W. Main St., Inverness. Chronicle reporter Cheri Harris can be reached at (352) 564-2926 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Tentative finance plan for 2011-12 school year OKd C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterHow is the best way to maneuver through the health care system? Stay as far away from it as you can, said Mickey Smith, chief executive officer of Oak Hill Hospital in Spring Hill. It will save you money and be safer. Smith was speaking Wednesday at a seminar in the hospitals community education series. His topic was How to effectively maneuver through the health care system, and his message was to adopt a healthy lifestyle. As an example, Smith said imagine everyone at age 16 got a free car, but that would be the only car youd ever get. Would you do all your oil changes? Smith asked. Would you speed? Run red lights? By the same token, you should maintain your good health with good choices. Smith admitted he needs $200 worth of medication a month to deal with hypertension and high cholesterol because of his lifestyle choice. I do not take great care of myself, he said. Because some people have not taken better care of themselves, costs for health care are high and are rising. The United States spends more on health care than any other country in the world, Smith said. But we get poor results because we pay for treatment whether we need it or not. We need to change the incentives of the system. When Medicare was introduced in 1965, it was a cost-based reimbursement system that gave the incentive of continually raising the costs, Smith said. In 1983, to save costs, payments came through a new system called diagnostic-related costs that identified a product, such as an appendectomy, and assigned a reimbursement. But with a fee schedule, physicians have to see more patients to earn more money. Either they give each patient less time, or they have other staff see the patients. Another way for physicians to increase income, Smith said, was to start their own imaging centers. But whether the imaging center used a cheaper, secondhand scanner or a state-of-the-art new scanner, Medicare paid the same fee for the imaging. The new scanner, however, likely would produce an accurate diagnosis, while the older scanner might offer three possibilities to test for, resulting in running more tests. Rather than hospitals getting paid for their own mistakes, Smith said the incentive should be changed to getting good results and cutting waste. Currently, Oak Hill Hospital costs $409,000 per day to operate, which is $17,000 an hour. In addition to taking better care of themselves, Smith urged patients to be the driver, not the passenger of their hospital care.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A recent study by a trio of economists showed a disproportionate number of Florida teachers left schools that got lower grades in 2002 after the state changed the way it evaluated them. Researchers call it accountability shock. Thats their term for unexpected results from shake-ups in the way students, teachers, administrators or schools are evaluated, graded, rewarded or punished. The study is timely advice because accountability changes are in the works across the nation due to President Barack Obamas Race to the Top school initiative. The program is providing $4.35 billion in federal stimulus money to Florida, 10 other states and the District of Columbia for innovative changes aimed at improving student achievement. Not a single Florida school had failed in 2001 before the grading change, but 63 received an F after the new procedure was adopted. It bases A-through-F grades on gains students make on standardized tests from year to year rather than simply on that years scores. The increased pressure probably produced some benefits but also led some teachers to move away from low-achieving schools, said Florida State University economist Tim Sass. The general lesson there is you have to be careful about potentially unintended consequences. A key provision in Floridas Race to the Top plan, as well as part of a new accountability law, is teacher merit pay that will be closely tied to how much students improve on the standardized tests. Besides the stigma, Floridas F schools miss out on financial rewards given to those that get an A or show significant improvement. Failing schools, though, do get other help such as additional reading coaches and they may undergo staffing changes. They also could face closure or conversion into charter schools. HOW YOUR LAWMAKERS VOTEDKey votes for the week ending: July 31 By Voterama in Congress U.S.-Canada Pipeline: Members voted, 279-147, to set a Nov. 1 deadline for President Obama to act on a Canadian firms application to build the Keystone XL pipeline for shipping crude oil from tar sands in Alberta to Texas refineries. A yes vote was to pass the non-binding bill (HR 1938). Rich Nugent, Yes. Oil-Spill Scenarios: Members refused, 168-260, to delay permits for a new U.S.Canada pipeline until the applicant, TransCanada Corp., shows how it would prevent oil spills or respond if they occur. A yes vote backed the amendment over arguments the company already has met that test. (HR 1938) Nugent, No. Endangered Species: Members upheld, 224-202, existing rules for listing plants, animals and habitats as candidates for Endangered Species Act protection. A yes vote was to keep HR 2584 from defunding a Fish and Wildlife Service program that designates species for potential protection. Nugent, No. Greenhouse-Gas Regulation: Members voted, 235-191, to halve the 2012 budget for the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program, under which power plants and refineries disclose emissions data to the Environmental Protection Agency. A yes vote was to cut the program's budget by $6.2 million and apply the savings to deficit reduction. (HR 2584) Nugent, Yes. FBI Director Mueller: Senators confirmed, 100-0, Robert S. Mueller III to lead the FBI for two more years. Mueller began a 10-year term on Sept. 4, 2001, as a George W. Bush appointee. President Obama is retaining him, although for a shorter term, to add continuity to his national-security team. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, Yes. Democratic Priorities: Voting 183 for and 244 against, the House on July 29 defeated a Democratic motion to S 627 (above) that called for giving spending for education programs priority over tax breaks for oil and gas companies and owners of corporate jets in future rounds of deficit-reduction. A yes vote backed the motion. Nugent, No. Speaker Boehners Debt Plan: Voting 218 for and 210 against, the House on July 29 passed a bill (S 627) authored by Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, to immediately raise the $14.3 trillion national debt ceiling by $917 billion and require both houses of Congress to soon pass a balanced-budget constitutional amendment. Under the plan, Congress would face another round of votes early next year to again raise the debt limit. A yes vote was to send the bill to the Senate. Nugent, Yes. John Boehners Debt Plan: Voting 59 for and 41 against, the Senate on July 29 tabled (killed) a House-passed bill (S 627) authored by Speaker John Boehner, ROhio, to cut spending by nearly $1 trillion over 10 years, immediately raise the national-debt ceiling by a comparab le sum and require Congress to send the states a balanced-budget constitutional amendment before the ceiling could be raised again. A yes vote was to kill the Boehner plan. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. Harry Reids Debt Plan: Voting 173 for and 246 against, the House on July 30 defeated a bill (HR 2693) that was an early version of a debt plan by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. The latest version of the Reid plan was to be voted on Sunday morning in the Senate. Republican leaders held this vote to show that Reids latest bill has no future in the House. The Reid plan would raise the national-debt limit by $2.7 trillion to about $17 trillion, a level sufficient to last into 2013. The Reid plan does not contain tax increases. A yes vote backed a bill similar to the Reid plan pending in the Senate. Nugent, No. Harry Reids Debt Plan: Voting 50 for and 49 against, the Senate on July 31 failed to reach 60 votes needed to advance a debt plan by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. This set the stage for Reid and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to present a new, bi-partisan bill that the Senate could pass and send to the House no later than Monday. A yes vote was to advance the Reid plan. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. Key votes ahead: In the week of Aug. 1, both chambers will take up fiscal 2012 appropriations bills and possibly measures to raise the national-debt ceiling. 2011 Thomas Reports Inc.

In a conference call with his rank and file, Boehner said the agreement isnt the greatest deal in the world, but it shows how much weve changed the terms of the debate in this town. Obama underscored that point. He said, if enacted, the agreement would mean the lowest level of domestic spending since Dwight Eisenhower was president more than a half century ago. Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid provided the first word of the agreement. Sometimes it seems our two sides disagree on almost everything, he said. But in the end, reasonable people were able to agree on this: The United States could not take the chance of defaulting on our debt, risking a United States financial collapse and a worldwide depression. In his remarks, Obama said there will be no initial cuts to entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare. But he said both could be on the table along with changes in tax law as part of future cuts. That was a reference to a special joint committee of lawmakers that will be established to recommend a second round of deficit reductions, to be voted on by Congress before years end as part of an arrangement to raise the debt ceiling yet again. That is expected to be necessary early next year. Pending final passage, the agreement marked a dramatic reach across party lines that played out over six months and several rounds of negotiating, interspersed by periods of intense partisanship. A final stick point had concerned possible cuts in the nations defense budget in the next two years. Republicans wanted less. Democrats pressed for more in an attempt to shield domestic accounts from greater reductions. Details apparently included in the agreement provide that the federal debt limit would rise in two stages by at least $2.2 trillion, enough until after the 2012 elections. Big cuts in government spending would be phased in over a decade. Thousands of programs the Park Service, Labor Department and housing among them could be trimmed to levels last seen years ago. No Social Security or Medicare benefits would be cut, but the programs could be scoured for other savings. Taxes would be unlikely to rise. Without legislation in place by Tuesday, the Treasury will not be able to pay all its bills, raising the threat of a default that administration officials say could inflict catastrophic damage on the economy. If approved, though, a compromise would presumably preserve Americas sterling credit rating, reassure investors in financial markets across the globe and possibly reverse the losses that spread across Wall Street in recent days as the threat of a default grew. Officials familiar with the negotiations said McConnell had been in frequent contact with Vice President Joe Biden, who has played an influential role across months of negotiations. In the first stage under the agreement, the nations debt limit would rise immediately by nearly $1 trillion and spending would be cut by a slightly larger amount over a decade. That would be followed by creation of the new congressional committee that would have until the end of November to recommend $1.8 trillion or more in deficit cuts, targeting benefit programs such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, or overhauling the tax code. Those deficit cuts would allow a second increase in the debt limit. If the committee failed to reach its $1.8 trillion target, or Congress failed to approve its recommendations by the end of 2011, lawmakers would then have to vote on a proposed constitutional balanced-budget amendment. If that failed to pass, automatic spending cuts totaling $1.2 trillion would automatically take effect, and the debt limit would rise by an identical amount. Social Security, Medicaid and food stamps would be exempt from the automatic cuts, but payments to doctors, nursing homes and other Medicare providers could be trimmed, as could subsidies to insurance companies that offer an alternative to government-run Medicare. those assembled of his memories of being just a 7year-old boy walking through the construction site of the original Citrus Memorial Hospital with his dad, Inverness banker George Brannen Sr. Brannens father, along with Charles Fitzpatrick and a few other local businessmen knew that without a hospital, a community couldnt grow. I remember as a child being up at Dr. Gale Osterhouts house one Saturday and a young man was run over by a car in front of the Valerie Theater, Joe Brannen said. At that time, the nearest hospitals were in Ocala or Brooksville. It was events like that that convinced our daddy that we needed a hospital here. Not only would it save a lot of lives, but it would be good for the community. Beginning in the 1940s, Brannen and others got a certificate of need issued by the state of Florida to open a hospital, and by 1949 they formed a board of directors and began raising money. During World War II, we didnt have any doctors here, and Daddy was always looking for doctors to come here, and not having a hospital was a big minus, Brannen said. He helped recruit Dr. Osterhout and Dr. Claude Carter. Brannen said he remembers his dad coming home from working at the bank and then the two of them walking over to watch the slab being poured or the walls going up. Even as a kid I could tell he was so excited and so happy, Brannen said. It was like (watching) his own home being built. Brannens sister, Margaret Monkey Hagar, remembers getting to pick out the colors of the bathroom tiles and the bedspreads pink, yellow, blue and green. The day they put the surgical center together and unpacked everything, I said, These look like saws! she said. In 1957, George Brannen Sr. was chairman of the board for the communitys new $400,000 hospital, a converted school building. It had 17,000 square feet of open floorspace with 16 rooms for patients, 25 beds and six doctors: Dr. Alfred Brown, Dr. J.W. Kirpatrick and Dr. Gale Osterhout from Inverness and Dr. Conrad Ernst, Dr. P .J. Hudson and Dr. Sam Miller from Crystal River. Marjorie Arnold was the first supervisor of nursing services. Today, still a not-for-profit community hospital, CMHS is now a 198-bed in-patient facility with a top-rate cardiac care unit, a newly expanded emergency room, 301 physicians, 1,449 staff employees and 439 volunteers. In 54 years, it has grown into a health system with six satellite facilities, including two walk-in facilities in Lecanto and Homosassa. And its not without its problems. Currently, the hospital foundation board of directors and the board of trustees have been in conflict for the past two years about who governs the hospital. Theyre currently headed to court to find a resolution. Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at (352) 564-2927 or nkennedy @chronicleonline.com.

Look in the mirror. Americans gripe about cowardly, self-serving politicians, and Congress doubtlessly has its feckless moments and members. But voters are quick to overlook their own role in legislative impasses that keep the nation from resolving big, obvious, festering problems such as immigration, the long-term stability of Medicare, and now, the debt ceiling. Heres the truth: The overwhelming majority of senators and House members do what their constituents want them to do. Or, more to the point, they respond to people in their districts who bother to vote. Nothing is dearer to politicians than re-election, and most have a keen sense of when they are straying into dangerous waters. For a growing number of senators and representatives, the only risk is in their partys primary, not in the general election. Most voters, and many news outlets, ignore primaries. That gives control to a relative handful of motivated, hard-core liberals (in Democratic contests) and full-bore conservatives (in GOP primaries). In politically balanced districts, a hard-right or hard-left nominee may have trouble in the general election, when many independent and centrist voters turn out. But many House districts today arent balanced, thanks largely to legislative gerrymandering and Americans inclination to live and work near people who share their views and values. The result is districts so solidly conservative that no GOP nominee can possibly lose, or so firmly liberal that any Democratic nominee is certain to win. In these districts, the primary is the whole ball game. Republican lawmakers are under constant pressure to drift to the right, to make sure no firebreathing conservative outflanks them in a light-turnout primary dominated by ideologues. The same goes for Democrats on the left. So who turns up on Capitol Hill for freshman orientation? Democrats and Republicans who can barely comprehend each others political viewpoints, let alone embrace them enough to pursue a possible compromise on big issues. But what if a Republican and Democrat do decide to meet halfway in hopes of finding, say, a path to shore up Social Security for decades to come. What can they expect? In some states and districts, they can expect to be drummed out of their party for the crime of engaging with the enemy. Thats what happened last year to Bob Bennett of Utah, a mainstream conservative Republican senator. A relatively small number of conservative activists, led by tea partyers, bounced him from the ticket at a GOP convention. They taunted Bennett with chants of TARP TARP He had voted for the bipartisan bank bailout legislation pushed by Republican President George W. Bush. The Senates GOP leaders also voted for the bill. But it was an unacceptable compromise in the eyes of Utah Republicans picking their Senate nominee. In Alaska, GOP primary voters also kicked Sen. Lisa Murkowski off their ballot. She barely saved her seat with a scrappy write-in candidacy. Murkowski supported the bank bailout and, admittedly, is more moderate than the average congressional Republican. But her improbable write-in victory proved she is popular with Alaskans in general, even if her own party rejected her in the primary. Tea party leaders spell out a warning in their periodic Washington rallies. The message is that were watching, and we want you to vote based on our core values, Mark Meckler, a co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, said at one such event. When Democratic leaders were struggling earlier this year to strike a budget deal and avert a government shutdown, Phil Kerpen of the conservative group Americans for Prosperity said sharply, No Republican better help them. The crowd cheered loudly. Such threats are mainly aimed at Republicans for now, largely because of the tea partys rapid rise. But Democratic lawmakers also know liberal discontent might undo them if they stray too far to the center. Its astounding how often some Democratic leaders sacrifice principles when critical issues are at stake, said a writer for the liberal AmericaBlog. The column rebuked Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., for working with the bipartisan Gang of Six on a debt-reduction plan. A McClatchy-Marist poll this year found 71 percent of registered voters want political leaders in Washington to compromise to get things done. If those voters skip key primaries, however, they may have little say in the matter. Political enthusiasts, whether they wear peace signs or Dont Tread On Me T-shirts, will determine who gets elected in many districts before a wide swath of Americans even notice its an election year. Except for a recently appointed senator from Nevada, every member of Congress got there the same way: American voters elected them. People may bristle at the notion that we get the government we deserve. But theres no denying we get the government we elect.

relief team finally reached them after a 200plus-kilometer snowmobile dash over the ice. Merely a major annoyance, she says today of that episode. Ice queen legend In 2003, Queen Elizabeth honored the intrepid Morris with a Polar Medal, given in recognition of distinguished service in Arctic and Antarctic exploration. Three years earlier the monarch inducted her into the Order of the British Empire. This may be her last traverse, at least in Greenland, Morris said. Too many trips over familiar territory dull the travelers sharpness. Shes still sharp enough, she said, but thats how Id like to bow out. And how does her accumulated polar mileage compare with Robert Falcon Scotts, Britains legendary Antarctic explorer? She scoffed at the impertinent question: He did it walking, for goodness sake! Might they likewise say of Liz Morris someday, Think of it, she traversed the ice by snowmobile? After all, young American engineers were already testing an instrumentladen robot here to replace human researchers on the ice. C HARLES J. HANLEY AP Special CorrespondentSUMMIT STATION, Greenland Friends sometimes catch her gazing, entranced, at the wind ripples forming in the snow, or at the diamond dust glint of crystals delicately drifting down the Arctic air. Her queen, Elizabeth II, may have hung the greatest honor, a Polar Medal, around her neck. But this Elizabeths greatest joy, despite ominous brushes with hungry polar bears and dying snowmobiles, still comes from skimming across a frozen landscape in search of the ground truth of ice and science. Travel, scientists blithely call their risky research expeditions into the polar emptiness. And here once again Liz Morris was set to travel, a petite Englishwoman on the cusp of age 65 about to undertake a demanding, monthlong traverse down the 3,050-meterhigh spine of the vast Greenland ice sheet with a single assistant, two heavyduty Ski-Doos and three wooden sleds piled with supplies and scientific gear. I think the big question is what is happening over the interior of the ice sheet, Morris said before setting off southward July 17 from this remote Arctic research station, which sits atop ice 3.2 kilometers thick in the frigid heart of the worlds largest island, 500 kilometers from the coast and nearest settlement. Drilling for answers On her 800-kilometer round trip with assistant John Sweeny seventh in a Greenland series begun in 2004 and totaling 3,200 kilometers Morris is to do just one thing, but an essential one: measure the density of the top layers of snow in 10meter-deep bore holes drilled at 12 sites. That on-the-ground data will then be used to validate and calibrate the readings of the high-flying European Cryosat-2 satellite, a new eye in the sky for tracking the depth of snow and ice and thereby the melting trend in the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets. The project led by Morris, of Cambridge Universitys Scott Polar Research Institute, is funded by Britains National Environmental Research Council and was mounted with the U.S. National Science Foundations cooperation. Its an example of the painstakingly detailed work by scores of researchers trying to assess how fast Greenlands melt may raise sea levels as the world warms. We could always tell you the day before the ice sheet disappears, Yes, its going. What were trying to do is get ahead of the game, Morris said as she prepared for the over-the-ice trek, checking her snowmobiles soundness, sleeping in a tent under the midnight sun in minus-12-degree-Celsius temperatures, readying her trademark all-orange traveling outfit. Arctic landscapeWith her Dutch boy-cut blonde hair, 1.55-meter (on a good day) stature and 54 kilograms, Morris fits no ones image of a polar trailblazer. But in a way, thats what brought her to glaciology four decades ago, when she earned her doctorate in physics from the University of Bristol. If shed been born with a very tough, agile physical body, she said, she would have been a mountaineer. Ice was a suitable substitute. Still, rock climbing around Britain helps keep her in shape, although for such Arctic traverses she must fatten myself up for the cold and the hard driving, for weeks of subsisting on dried food cooked in melted snow. What draws her to the ice? I like the solitude, she said. Its very beautiful. You look at it on two different scales on the really detailed, centimeter scale, and then you can see hundreds of kilometers and big skies. Career travelsHer field work in daunting polar conditions dates back to the 1980s and an Antarctica where the British Antarctic Survey, then her employer, still traveled with dog teams pulling sleds, and where Morris became the first female regular on the research treks. Shes a veteran of five Antarctic traverses and others elsewhere, including the scariest in Norways Arctic islands of Svalbard, when she and Norwegian researchers shut themselves up in protective wooden crates to sleep. Voracious polar bears came around often, clawing her door. We were always sitting up in our sleeping bags with a rifle between us, looking at the door, and wondering, Is this bastard coming in or not? she recalled. Then here in Greenland, on a two-snowmobile traverse, one of the machines broke down, stranding them in the deep freeze of autumn 2006. For three days she and her assistant struggled futilely to find and remedy the problem, until a A6 M ONDAY, A UGUST 1, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE 0008UQR 1624 N.

When he was just a high school kid hawking balloons with Mickey Mouses picture on them, Treb Heining never imagined that his affection for those little helium-filled orbs would blow up into anything more than a fun summertime job. That was before Heining became The Balloon Man, the go-to guy for anyone who wanted to rain balloons by the millions on Super Bowls, presidential nominating conventions, Olympic Games or any other public event where such a sight invariably reduces thousands to spontaneously shouting ohhhh and ahhhh. I guess you can say I didnt come very far. Im still in balloons, the same thing I was when I was 15, Heining said while sitting amid the colorful spheroids in a windowless office on the backside of a sprawling shopping mall near Disneyland. But weve kind of pushed the boundaries a little bit, the 57-year-old added with a mischievous chuckle. Those bulbous, earshaped balloons of Mickey Mouse that bob magically for weeks inside the even bigger, round-shaped balloons? Those were Heinings idea. So was the balloon that lights up at the touch of a switch placed near the knot. It took him years of waiting for the technology to develop so he could fit the little bulb inside and keep it glowing for 48 hours without melting the balloon. More recently he came up with pet balloons, those Mylar jobs you see kids proudly walking on leashes all over shopping malls. Along the way, the friendly, bespectacled kid from Southern Californias suburban Orange County also picked up a variety of odd skills, including the ability to inflate and tie more than 1,000 balloons an hour. It takes me awhile to warm up but I can still tie balloons faster than anybody in the world. And I dont make that claim lightly, Heining said, laughing. Doubt that boast, will you? Out comes a bag of balloons from one of numerous drawers lining a wall, each labeled by color, and suddenly a balloon is being inflated about every three seconds. Theres the familiar thhhhfft sound of helium being dispersed from tank to balloon, followed by that fingernails-on-blackboard noise of balloon being twisted and tied shut. All the while, Heining dressed in suit and tie is keeping up a running commentary on the fine points of balloon inflation. Im not watching the balloon, he said at one point as he peers through brown horn-rimmed glasses at the pile of uninflated balloons. One mans career inflates with balloons Californian turns summer job into career Im looking at the one Im going to grab next. While most inflaters use equipment that measures out set increments of helium, Heining controls the tank himself without ever checking the balloon to see if hes putting in too much or too little. He does so by counting out the amount in his head in 4-4 time, just as he once did when he played the trumpet in his high school band. Music, after all, was going to be his real career when he landed that temporary balloon-hawking gig at Disneyland in the summer of 1969. I realized at a certain point, I think, that what I wanted to do, playing professionally, I probably wasnt good enough to do it, he said now. Fortunately, he had a day job by then, putting on elaborate balloon displays for celebrity parties around Southern California. Associated Press Treb Heining poses with balloons in his office in Costa Mesa, Calif.
Arab unrest, high food prices cast pall T AREK E L -T ABLAWY AP Business WriterCAIRO From Syria to Libya and Egypt, the uprisings and unrest gripping the Arab world have cast a pall on the start of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month when the traditional focus on piety will likely be eclipsed by more unrest. Food prices part of the economic hardships that catalyzed the ouster of the Egyptian and Tunisian leaders are still climbing. And protesters have shown little patience for conciliatory gestures by governments after decades of empty promises. With momentum strong to drive out authoritarian regimes, there is no sign that opposition forces will ease up on protests even with the difficulties of the month of dawn-to-dusk fasting that begins Monday. Predictions of a tense Ramadan have already started to be realized. Libyan rebels are turning their weapons on each other, dimming hopes for the overthrow of longtime leader Moammar Gadhafi. Syrian security forces escalated their crackdown on protesters the day before Ramadan on Sunday, killing more than 70 people. And the violence in Syria is only expected to intensify throughout the holy month. In Egypt, Cairos Tahrir Square is once again a tent encampment and the joyous celebrations that accompanied Hosni Mubaraks fall on Feb. 11 have given way to anger and impatience over the slow pace of change. In response to the pressure from a new round of protests, the judiciary is promising to put Mubarak, his security chief and his two sons on trial this week for a range of charges from corruption to ordering the killing of protesters during the uprising. The hearings are to be carried live on state television, broadcasts that could easily outshine the Ramadan television serials that Egyptians love to watch during the month. Ramadan falls this year during the scorching summer, when tempers already running hot could easily boil over, especially as Egyptians complain about the continued rise in food prices and the general economic malaise after the uprising. Food prices typically spike during Ramadan, and the extravagant dinners many put on to break the daily fast drive a deep hole in household budgets. Before the revolution, Egyptians were like kindling waiting for a match, said Mahmoud El-Askalany with the consumer group Citizens Against the High Cost of Living. He was talking about the sense of frustration over soaring prices of food and consumer goods, as well as the gross income inequality and nepotism that prevailed before the Arab uprisings. If anyone thinks that this has changed, theyd be wrong, El-Askalany said. The same rage we saw then can surface again, and worse. Still, Egyptians have not lost their sense of humor. In the annual tradition of naming dates after celebrities, they have dubbed the cheapest, least desirable variety of the fruit Hosni Mubarak this year. Theyre the lousiest of them all, said date vendor Sherif Ramadan, flicking one of the shriveled brown pellets back into a burlap sack with the others. Even though they sell for 40 cents per kilogram (2.2 pounds), and dates are a traditional food for Ramadan, theres no demand for them, he said. In Syria, protests and the governments violent crackdown on them are expected to escalate during the month ahead, deepening a spiral of violence that has already killed at least 1,600 people since the uprising began in mid-March. Libyas civil war remains mired in a stalemate, and across the oil-rich OPEC member, the fighting has battered what was once an economy on the cusp of sharp growth. While Libyans in government-held Tripoli grapple with dayslong gasoline lines and food and cash shortages, rebels in the east have clashed with a rogue faction while battling forces loyal to Gadhafi. In addition, one of the rebels chief commanders was killed in yet unexplained circumstances after the rebels themselves arrested him. W AYNEP ARRY Associated PressPATERSON, N.J. As the rubble of ground zero smoldered in the months after the Sept. 11 terror attacks, the investigation was just as hot across the Hudson River in New Jersey. More than 1,100 Arabs and Muslims most of them from New York and northern New Jersey were rounded up and detained as the FBI feverishly searched for additional terrorists. In few places was the spotlight as whitehot as in Paterson, where as many as six of the 9/11 hijackers lived or spent time in the weeks before the attacks. As agents went knocking on doors, asking questions about religious practices, finances and acquaintances, many Muslims were cowering on the other side, terrified of being thrown in jail for crimes they knew nothing about. A young, soft-spoken Muslim immigration attorney named Sohail Mohammed represented many people rounded up in New Jersey in the post-9/11 dragnet. Along the way, he gained the respect and friendship of many top law enforcement officials for his efforts to build bridges between the Muslim community and law enforcement and to help defuse tensions in those incredibly tense days. He won over one official whose favor would prove crucial nearly a decade later: the U.S. attorney for New Jersey, Chris Christie. Christie, now the states governor and a darling of the Republican party, nominated Mohammed to a Superior Court judgeship. Mohammed was sworn into office last week, becoming New Jerseys second Muslim judge. Mohammed, 47, says his religion has nothing to do with how hell perform his new job. My faith, my ethnicity: that means nothing here, he said. Its not an issue. Not everyone agreed. After Christie nominated Mohammed in January for the judgeship, the tough-talking, crime-busting former federal prosecutor found himself accused of cozying up to Islamic radicals. Governor Christies Dirty Islamist Ties, one of the kinder Internet headlines read. Christie, whom GOP loyalists are now begging to run for president, stuck with Mohammed despite a vicious campaign by conservative bloggers who denounced Christie and raised fears Mohammed would introduce Islamic Sharia law into the courts. Sohail Mohammed is an extraordinary American who is an outstanding lawyer who played an integral role post-9/11 in building bridges between the Muslim community and law enforcement, Christie said. I was there; I saw it. Sharia law has nothing to do with this. Its crazy, Christie said. This Sharia law business is crap; its crazy and Im tired of dealing with crazies. Im happy hes willing to serve after all this baloney. The fallout from the terror attacks was quick and extreme in Paterson, home to the nations second-largest Arab-American community after Dearborn, Mich. Carloads of people descended on the citys Arab quarter, screaming obscenities and throwing things at veiled women on the sidewalk. Some radio hosts broadcast falsely that Arabs were dancing in the streets and on rooftops when the World Trade Centers towers fell. Robert Passero, Passaic Countys Superior Court assignment judge at the time, was feeling the pressure as well. They were recommending I close the courthouse because tempers were high, he said. There were people from out of town riding through south Paterson making threats. It was very tense. Passero had known Mohammed for years, taking an interest in him after the young man sat through one of his cases as a juror, then implausibly called the judges office the following week to say he loved jury duty so much he wanted to do it again. Seeing the makings of a future lawyer, the judge encouraged Mohammed to go to law school, then mentored him along the way, even as Mohammed started a solo practice concentrating on immigration law. Mohammed would get numerous calls each week from worried Muslims saying FBI agents had knocked on their doors and asked for personal information, including where they worshipped, the names of others who attended the mosque and whether they had ever declared bankruptcy. After 9/11 we wanted to forge a better relationship with the Muslim community, we wanted to understand them better, we wanted them to understand us better, explain our job, and that we are there to protect them, too, said Charles McKenna, an assistant U.S. attorney at the time and now head of New Jerseys Office of Homeland Security. But we didnt have many entrees into that community. Through Sohail, we were able to go in and meet with a lot of the elders of the community. I think that community was a little afraid of the government at that time. A person with his gravitas gave us a foot in the door. Mohammed undertook several initiatives that eased the mistrust and increased understanding between both sides. He and other leaders of New Jerseys Muslim community met with FBI and other law enforcement agencies to educate them on Islam and Muslim culture. He helped arrange a job fair at a mosque in which the agencies recruited Muslims for law enforcement jobs. At the time, none of the more than 300 FBI agents assigned to New Jersey spoke Arabic. Not long afterward, Mohammed and others offered to speak to law enforcement to explain Islam and Muslim culture. By all accounts, the sessions went well. They eventually were expanded beyond the FBI to other agencies, including the Joint Terrorism Task Force.N ATION/W ORLD C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, A UGUST 1, 2011 A7 0008VLC Also Diamonds, Silver & Coins, and Entire Estates OPEN Mon-Fri 9-6 Sat 9-3 Occasionally Sundays Call First 341-GUNS (4867) Hwy. 44 West (next to Sherwin Williams) Inverness Nobody Pays More For Your Gold & Guns Period 0 0 0 8 V 5 G 0008V5G Citrus Counties Largest Gold Buyer!

Religious authorities in most of the Middle East declared Monday will be the start of the holy month of Ramadan, a period devoted to dawn-to-dusk fasting, prayers and spiritual introspection. Ramadan begins around 11 days earlier each year. Its start is calculated based on the sighting of the new moon, which marks the beginning of the Muslim lunar month that varies between 29 or 30 days.

Only a few hundred feet away stands a newly built camp with a police station, toilet blocks and schools. Neat thornbush fences in the camp separate residential areas for families to move into. But all the facilities are empty. The Kenyan government is refusing to open the new Ifo 2 facility as part of the worlds biggest refugee camp, Dadaab, saying the desperate Somali refugees flowing into the country are a security risk. But for the women and children who fled war and famine and are now forced to build their shelters farther and farther away from the center of the camps, the extension would be a refuge from the armed men who prowl the bush at night. Some may be deserters from Somali forces across the border; others are Kenyan bandits who rob and gangrape the stream of refugees fleeing the famine in Somalia. The contrast between the squalid, insecure outskirts of the sprawling camp and the empty, silent facilities shows how regional politics can interfere with aid efforts, causing millions of dollars to be wasted and leaving women and children vulnerable to attack. What can we do? Mohamud asked. Our neighbors have been raped at night. We are afraid. Some boys are helping watch at night in case of trouble but they also work during the day. Mohamud and eight other women and girls share their rickety shelter on the outskirts of Dadaab, a camp designed for 90,000 people which now houses around 440,000 refugees. Almost all are from warravaged Somalia. Some have been here for more than 20 years, when the country first collapsed into anarchy. But now more than 1,000 are arriving daily, fleeing fighting or hunger. The U.N. said this month that at least two regions in Somalia are suffering from famine and 11.3 million people in the Horn of Africa need aid. To help ease the overcrowding, international donors including the U.S. and European Union spent $16 million building the Ifo 2 extension, which could house 40,000 people. But it is still unclear when or if the Kenyan government will open it. Research shows that women are often attacked when they leave their families to go to the bathroom or gather firewood. When Mohamuds three young daughters need to relieve themselves, she insists on going with them, and takes the only torch the nine women share between them. She has no shoes, so she walks barefoot over the thorny ground. Women express a lot of fear about going to the bush. They say there are men with guns there, said Sinead Murray, an aid worker with the International Rescue Committee. Her organization has recorded a spike in rapes and attempted rape. Since the beginning of June, they have had double the number of attacks reported from January-May. More and more women are coming forward who have been raped, said Murray, who said consultations with communities show the vast majority of rapes go unreported. Women may not know where to seek help, or fear ostracism by their community. They are women like Sahan, who was on a bus coming over from Somalia when four gunmen stopped the vehicle. The women were ordered off and raped in the bush for three hours. She has not reported the rape because she was living far away from any medical services on the outskirts of the camp and did not want to leave her family. She asked her last name not be used to protect her privacy. A reporter for The Associated Press drove around the newly constructed area in Dadaab and found rows of new toilet blocks standing amid the rows of empty lots, where women could more safely go to the bathroom and easily walk to police or medical services if they were attacked. The Ifo 2 camp also houses a freshly painted primary and secondary school, police station, and headquarters for aid organizations ranging from Handicap International to the Norwegian Refugee Council padlocked shut. A medical facility for Doctors Without Borders lay half-built after aid workers said they were told to stop building early this year. The group now treats people in nearby tents instead. More than two weeks ago, Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga visited Dadaab and said the Ifo 2 extension would open in 10 days. On Saturday, Kenyan government spokesman Alfred Mutua said that no decision had yet been reached. Kenyan officials have said that they consider the influx of Somalis a security risk because part of the country is held by al-Qaida linked rebels. They also fear that if they provide the schools and medical care lacking in Somalia, families will simply move to Kenya to get better services. The Kenyans want aid agencies to deliver food in Somalia instead but charities face attack by bandits and harassment by Kenyan officials at the border. But Somalis say they have no other choice than to flee their homes because they will be killed by gunmen or starve to death if they stay at home. In the meantime, the refugees keep coming as the hunger crisis worsens but there is nowhere for them to go. The camps are full to bursting, and medical staff are setting up tents to treat new arrivals. Women and their children are being forced farther out, away from services and security. Aid agencies are appealing for more donations, unable to use the facilities they built. And Mohamud, whose door is only a blanket draped on a stick, keeps her daughters close and dreads each sunset. We are afraid, she said again, as her 13-year-old daughter played in the dirt in front of her. Maybe they will come back. But we have nowhere else to go. Somali refugee women fear for lives Bandits attack, rape females living near outskirts of camp Associated Press A family walks away after being handed food at a World Food Programme compound in a displacement camp Sunday in Dadaab, Kenya. Dadaab, a camp designed for 90,000 people, now houses around 440,000 refugees. Almost all are from war-ravaged Somalia. A child with its mother after they were handed food stuff at WFP. Now more than 1,000 refugees are arriving daily, fleeing fighting or hunger. Judge promises quick Mubarak trial Associated PressCAIRO Egypts Hosni Mubarak will receive a speedy trial with all hearings broadcast live on state television, the judge who will try the ousted leader pledged Sunday. The trial is scheduled to begin Wednesday in the countrys national police academy in a Cairo suburb. Mubarak, his security chief Habib el-Adly and six top police officers face possible death sentences if found guilty on charges they ordered the use of lethal force against protesters during Egypts 18day uprising. Some 850 were killed. A public trial for Mubarak and his top aides is a main demand of protesters who toppled his regime. Weekly demonstrations continue in Cairo, reflecting demands for a quick public trial for the deposed strongman. Judge Ahmed Rifaat told a news conference that he would allow 600 people to attend the trial, including defense lawyers, relatives, victims families and journalists. It is the right of the Egyptian people to be assured that what takes place in the courtroom conforms to the law, said the silver-haired Rifaat. Mubaraks sons Gamal and Alaa will also be tried along with their father and a close associate on charges of corruption. The associate, businessman Hussein Salem, is a fugitive and will be tried in absentia. The tough-talking judge read a prepared statement and left the news conference in a courthouse in downtown Cairo without answering any questions. The statement frequently cited verses from the Quran, the Muslim holy book, and made repeated pledges to ensure that the entire process would be transparent, orderly and in conformity with the law. Rifaat did not say whether Mubarak would physically be present in Wednesdays hearing, but he vowed to place the trial on a fast track, with daily hearings. After his Feb. 11 overthrow, Mubarak left Cairo for the Red Sea resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh. He was later admitted to a local hospital for treatment for heart problems. He has remained at the hospital in police custody. All hearings broadcast live Ahmed Rifaat will preside over trial against Hosni Mubarak. Suicide bomber strikes, killing 11 people KANDAHAR, Afghanistan A suicide bomber blew himself up Sunday at the main gate of a provincial police headquarters in southern Afghanistan, killing at least 11 people in a city where Afghans have recently taken control of security. Separately, five international service members were killed Sunday. The suicide bombing in Lashkar Gah was the latest in a string of attacks in the south in recent weeks that have included assassinations of high-level government officials in neighboring Kandahar and a coordinated attack against government buildings in Uruzgan province that killed 19 people last week. The high-profile attacks have provoked a growing sense of insecurity in the very region where international military commanders say security has improved since the surge of U.S. troops last year. Lashkar Gah, the capital of Helmand province, in particular has been touted as a success story from the offensive by international forces one reason it was one of seven areas handed over to Afghan forces earlier this month. The attack early Sunday, which ripped a gaping hole in the station compounds wall, killed 10 police officers and a child, and wounded as least 12 people, said Helmand provincial spokesman Daoud Ahmadi.Plan sought in Oct. for US exit from AfghanistanKABUL, Afghanistan The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan has been ordered to submit a plan by mid-October for the initial withdrawal of American troops, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Sunday. That plan may hinge in part on whether the latest surge in attacks continues through the holy month of Ramadan. Commanders are hearing that Taliban leaders might leave their fighters in the country to try to regain lost ground during the Islamic holy period which begins Monday, rather than crossing the border to Pakistan, said Adm. Mike Mullen, the Joint Chiefs chairman. Mullen, who visited U.S. outposts along Afghanistans eastern border on Sunday, also said U.S. troops are making progress in their renewed campaign against Haqqani network insurgents in havens in Pakistan. And he issued another warning that Islamabad must step up its efforts to root out those militants. Speaking to reporters traveling with him in Afghanistan, Mullen said Marine Gen. John Allen, who has just taken over as top U.S. commander here, needs time to evaluate the combat, training and other requirements before presenting a detailed withdrawal plan. Mullens comments for the first time laid out a deadline for Allen to structure the planned withdrawal of 10,000 U.S. troops by the end of the year, as announced by President Barack Obama. The next month will be very telling, said Mullen, noting that often the Taliban leaders will travel back to Pakistan for Ramadan. Its unclear at this point what they will do, or if there will be any decline in the fighting. Strong earthquake strikes off Papua New GuineaSYDNEY A strong earthquake has struck off the coast of the Pacific island nation of Papua New Guinea. There are no immediate reports of damage or injuries and no tsunami alert has been issued. The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-6.8 quake struck Monday 81 miles east of the town of Wewak at a depth of 10 miles. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not issue a tsunami alert. Papua New Guinea lies on the Ring of Fire. The region is an arc of earthquake and volcanic zones that stretches around the Pacific Rim and where about 90 percent of the worlds quakes occur.

O PINION Page A10 MONDAY, AUGUST 1, 2011 U.S. self-destruction Our nation is witnessing one of the most dangerous games weve ever encountered. We have both political parties playing a game of poker, and each is drawing to an inside straight. It may very well be that there will be no winner. I am reminded of what President Abraham Lincoln had to say many years ago, and I quote: America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. Earl Herring Beverly Hills Credit card fraud In talking with a neighboryesterday, I was told that someone had fraudulently charged $1,200 dollars to her credit card. In conversations with a few other neighbors in thissmall community, a number of othershad become aware that they, too,had theircards inappropriatelyused. Two weeks ago, I received a new credit card, and just to be sure that I, too, was not a victim, I called the company credit card and lo and behold there was $400 unauthorized on mybalance. A customer service representative indicated that many of the numbers stolen were related to a local restaurant purchase. It may well be time to revert to a tried and true method of paying for service and items purchased with a check in order to keep a check on mycash balance.William C. Young Crystal River Government promises There has been much written and discussed over the past several weeks regarding our debt ceiling situation. The Republicans now seem to be entrenched in the philosophy that the debt must be reduced at a cost to some. They argue that, as a country, we must have a sit-down talk around the kitchen table. I guess that is a folksy way of saying we need to decide how to handle our current debt and future costs. I agree; however, the Republicans appear to be a bit onesided. First, they want to get the budget straightened out by just cuts. After a family cuts all they can, they will most likely find they still are unable to meet all expenses. The second part of the discussion is, then, how they bring in additional revenue. Possibly mom gets a job, dad gets a second job or looks for a better paying job. Government needs to reduce expenses like a much bloated military, possibly end foreign aid, and do national projects based on sound bidding processes, and only after there is legitimate justification for the cost. The president has made it clear he is not going to cut Social Security or Medicare even though the Republicans clearly want that. When I first started working, I was told the government required me to pay into Social Security. In later years I was told the government requires me to pay into Medicare. Neither was a choice. I viewed these as paying into an annuity that I could start collecting on when I retired. It was government-backed. Now people in our government want to renege on this investment program because government has poorly handled the program. I feel the government should not be allowed to destroy these programs and should be held accountable. These programs can be run efficiently if our Congress would stop playing games with our money and act like intelligent and rational statesmen instead of mean-spirited children. Roger B. Krieger Beverly Hills T here was a quake last week, but you likely didnt feel it. See, this particular quake was not of the Earth, involved no shifting of the planetary crust. No, what shifted was a paradigm, and the implications are hopeful and profound. On Tuesday, you see, the NAACP passed a resolution calling for an end to the War on Drugs. NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous said in a written statement, These flawed drug policies that have been mostly enforced in African-American communities must be stopped and replaced with evidencebased practices that address the root causes of drug use and abuse in America. Heres why this matters. Or, more to the point, why it matters more than if such a statement came from Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. The NAACP is not just the nations oldest and largest civil rights organization. It is also its most conservative. That word is used here not in the modern sense of tea party antics or Fox News rantings but, rather, in the original sense, denoting a propensity toward caution and a distrust of the bold, the risky, the new. And thats the NAACP all over. Let the Universal Negro Improvement Association go back to Africa. Let the Nation of Islam preach black supremacy. Let the Congress of Racial Equality launch Freedom Rides. The NAACP went to court. Yes, the comparison is simplistic, but its essentially apt. Nor is the point of it to disparage after all, going to court produced a landmark ruling in 1954. No, its only to say there has always been something determinedly middle class and cautious about the NAACP This is the group whose then-leader, Roy Wilkins, famously detested Martin Luther King for his street theatrics. For that group, then, to demand an end to the Drug War represents a monumental sea change. Interestingly, a number of other conservative again, in the old, intelligent sense of the word observers have also questioned U.S. drug policy. That includes George Schultz, Ronald Reagans secretary of state; Kathleen Parker, a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist; and the late William F. Buckley Jr., founder of the National Review. And why not? By now, two things should be neon obvious where the Drug War is concerned. The first is that it failed. Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, an advocacy group, reports after 40 million arrests and a trillion dollars spent to fight drug use, the number of those who have used drugs is up 2,800 percent since 1970. The second is that it has come down like a hammer on the African-American community while leaving the white community, which does most of the buying, selling and using of drugs in this country, unscathed. The Sentencing Project, another advocacy group, reports while two-thirds of regular crack users are white or Latino, better than 80 percent of those sentenced in federal court for crack-related crimes are black. That is absurd, obscene and unjust. It is time to concede what has long been apparent: you cannot jail people out of wanting what they want. But, you just might be able to treat and educate them to that purpose. Granted, that will require a paradigm shift some of us will find difficult to get our heads around. But if the NAACP can do it, you and I have no excuse. Write to Leonard Pitts Jr. at 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132 or email@example.com. In faith and hope the world will disagree But all mankinds concern is charity. Alexander Pope, An Essay on Man 1733-34 NAACP calls for end to drug war CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M.

Volunteers have huge impact T hey mentor our children, drive patients to doctor appointments, build homes for needy families, put out fires, clean our waterways, raise money for library programs, plant trees, rescue pets and feed our homeless. They hammer, file, sing, cook, clean, listen, shovel, coach and watch. They are advocates for those who cannot speak out, comforts in time of grief, tour guides for our historical landmarks, keepers of the reptiles at our park and clowns on a mission. Their contribution to our community is priceless; their paycheck is $0. As individuals, the contributions of a Citrus County volunteer may not appear to be heroic or highly financial in scope. But collectively, the men, women and even children who we call volunteers are vital to the growth and wellbeing of this community, especially in difficult and financially uncertain times. With deep budget cuts in all levels of public and private services, the help that comes through all levels of volunteerism is quite often the glue that holds us all together. Without faithful volunteers, most nonprofit and charitable organizations would not be able to provide the level of service and/or reach the people who are in need. Without advisory boards, friends organizations and assistance that comes from all levels of knowhow and experience at no charge, the dayto-day processes of major service providers in our community would be stripped and gutted. Schools, law enforcement, hospitals, libraries, parks, chambers of commerce and most recreational opportunities would find themselves severely limited on what they could provide if they had to do it without their volunteers. In its strictest definition, volunteeringis the practice of people working on behalf of others or a particular cause without payment for their time and services. But most will argue the personal rewards are as meaningful as any payment or recognition. While some volunteer roles may also give people the opportunity to promote a specific issue or cause, most volunteers just want to make a difference in their community. Volunteers who step forward to generously augment the economic, cultural and public safety in Citrus County continue to make that difference every day and, for that, we are blessed and indeed thankful. Our volunteers are yet another reminder as to what makes Citrus County a special place to call home. THE ISSUE: The blessing of volunteers.OUR OPINION: A superior workforce for all economic seasons.

Everybody should pay something and that 48 percent should pay something toward their upkeep and to all the programs that are provided for them. Its not right for the rest of us to carry all of them on our backs.Big piece of pie In the s, the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans owned about 9 percent of our countrys total income. In the intervening years, that percentage has grown to considerab ly over 20 percent. The middle class and working poor have gotten less of the economic pie. They have not gotten their share. Sadly, the tea party legislators in Congress seem dedicated to preserving, or even increasing, the wealth of the rich among us and putting even more burdens on the working class. At this point, they appear willing to destroy our countrys economy in order to further their political agenda. No more aidAsk yourself: Are you better off today than you are when Obama took over? Everybody in my family would say no. Theyve all lost their jobs, and the people that do have some savings are scared that theyre going to lose it. Its not a good time, but Obama is trying to scare people. And you need to call your congressmen and just tell them how you feel. It would be a lot better if they would quit giving money to the foreign countries, if they would stop all foreign aid, stop paying all the politicians and let the government shut down and just see if you miss anything. I dont really think you will, but people are scared they wont get their checks, but tell them to quit sending checks to other countries first.Rays announcer Im sorry that person doesnt like the announcers for the Rays ball team.

not just in the restoration she has done inside, but the Subway expansion into the glass-walled storefront on the corner of Pine and Main Street. Once a town starts to look like every place else, you lose your character, she said. When that happens, why should anybody come to visit or open a business here if theres nothing special? For people who want to restore historic buildings, theres money out there, she said. There are tax incentives, and thats something people need to know. Weve already lost too many historic buildings, and once theyre gone, theyre gone. Sen. Charlie Dean is another one who believes Inverness past is its future. He recalls growing up in Inverness where his dad was the sheriff and later the chief of police. He recalls peeking into the old jail where the new courthouse is now just to see what was going on and seeing a movie at the Valerie Theater for nine cents. When I think of Inverness, I hope we never lose the culture of a small town community, he said. Like Dean, Winn Webb grew up in the area. Now a county commissioner representing Inverness, he said he remembers running the movie projector at the Valerie Theater when he was young. People love nostalgia, and I think Inverness is doing a good job, especially the way theyre beautifying the city, he said. Its the whole, If you build it, they will come. If you beautify it, they will come. Inverness is on good footing, he said. John Sullivan, like DiazFonseca, came from someplace else, but embraced Inverness right away. A grocer for 25 years at the former Kash n Karry, he served on the city council from 1996 to 2007. Sullivan sees the future of Inverness as an ideal retirement area for baby boomers. Weve got lakes and the gulf not too far away. Weve got the trail and lots of churches, restaurants, law offices its a great place to live, he said. Even the chain restaurants that have been going in up (State Road) 44, its all part of the infrastructure. If theyre not here, people will drive elsewhere to go to them, so I dont see them as a negative at all. He added its a strong infrastructure and a place with character that attracts people. People dont move to Disney World to live, he said. Theyll go to visit there, but they want to live in a strong area that has schools and libraries and churches and a good government. Those things are important. For Inverness business owners Winston and Andrea Perry, theyre excited. They recently sold the Valerie Theater to the city of Inverness and that couldnt be happier with the citys plans to restore and revive it. Using grant money, the plans call for the theater to be used as a movie theater, also for meetings, cultural events, concerts, plays, etc. According to Inverness City manager Frank DiGiovanni, the theater restoration project includes a plaza connected to the theater. When its completed, it will fit into the vibrancy of the existing downtown, DiGiovanni said. As we move in that direction, it speaks well to the future. Our vision and planning arent just for today. We keep looking out, 10, 20, 50 years. Our projects are long term. Two doors down from the theater, in a storefront the Perrys own, a pub will be opening in the fall. Although there are already two pubs and a martini bar nearby, the Perrys believe the more the merrier. Wed like to see a good mix of retail stores on the square, because that makes it interesting, Winston Perry said. Mrs. Perry added, Id love to see another shop just like ours. They own Ritzy Rags and Glitzy Jewels, a gift shop and vintage store. The more like shops you have in an area, the better it is for everyone. Just like the Courtside Pub, the more places you have to congregate, the better it is for everyone. Although the Perrys live in Homosassa, they said Inverness is the place they chose to do business. Our business is up every year, Mrs. Perry said. People still stand in line to get into Stumpknockers and the Deco Caf is always busy when they do their Friday night thing, and Little Italy Inverness is special. The Perrys give much of the credit to DiGiovanni, his vision and leadership. We had some battles with him a long time ago, but thats over, Winston Perry said. His insight into whats going on and whats going to happen hes done a superb job. For Lace Blue-McLean, local business owner and chairwoman of Citrus 20/20, the sky is the limit when it comes to the future of Inverness. In an act of faith and optimism, shes opening Inverness Yoga and Wellness Center on Pine Avenue in a week or two. One of the things that excites me about Inverness is that they do have a vision and a strategic plan, and not just the city, but theres so much going on in the outskirts, she said. The Inverness Old Towne Association we have members as far out as Walmart and up (U.S.) 41 South. She envisions Inverness as being ripe for growth, but not necessarily sprawl. She sees people investing in the old and making it new, of restoring the places in Inverness that hold its history within their walls. It may be pie in the sky, but you never know, she said. If grants come along and when opportunity presents itself, we should be ready to jump on it. Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at (352) 564-2927 or nkennedy @chronicleonline.com.

Doctoring in a small town N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS From the front porch of his family practice office on Osceola Avenue, Dr. Robert Holstein can sit in one of his white rocking chairs and look out onto Main Street to his right and watch cars go by. Hes surrounded by other doctors offices and medical facilities, including Citrus Memorial Heath System where hes on staff. Some of the nearby facilities are high-tech and modern; some, like his, are converted old Inverness private homes. Although Holstein doesnt know the history of the house that a previous physician, Dr. Weiss, had also used as a medical office, he knows it has a history. It also has a country charm and a small-town feel. It makes him think about West Virginia where hes from. It keeps him grounded and reminds him of his core values and the reason he became a doctor. At a time when doctors across the nation are increasingly focused on volume and getting as many patients in and out so they can make a profit, Holstein has opted to follow a different model. Im a country doctor at heart, he said. I believe in the family concept; thats why Im in family practice. I like to know my patients to where we can feel like family. With each patient, Holstein will sit down and chat. Theyll talk about much more than the illness or condition that prompted the visit. Theyll talk about whats going on at home, whats going on at work. My mentors and those who I studied under, that was a philosophy they carried through in their family practice, he said. It became natural to me to want to be a family physician and to have a broad medical practice and experience. Holstein came to Inverness in 1996 after 12 years in Sumter County. That was very rural, he said. We didnt have a hospital and I made a lot of house calls. He said he worked with a lot of AIDS patients, many whom had come from other places and who had come back to their families to die. Citrus Memorial assumed my practices from Lake Panasoffkee and Wildwood and moved me to Inverness to work for Citrus Primary Care, and I was an employee of the hospital for three years, he said. In 2000, I came to this office with my own practice. Before that I had an office on Pine Avenue for about a year. Across the highway in one of the oldest sections of Inverness sits the historic Warnock house at 227 Ella Ave. Dr. Warnock was one of the first doctors in Inverness and the house belonged to his son. When family practice physician Dr. Jill Adera saw the house, she fell in love with it. It was falling apart, and that broke my heart, she said. She and her husband, Habtu Adera, also a family physician, bought it and started restoring it. As they worked on the house, Jill Adera, who worked at the health department in Inverness at the time, starting thinking, This would be a perfect place for an exam room, and Wouldnt it be great to make this a waiting room where on cold winter days I could actually have a fire going? When they bought the house in 2008, they didnt know what they would do with it. They thought it could be a home for Habtu Aderas parents or they might turn it into a bed and breakfast. As we began to scrape the floors and rebuild the porches we decided I would create a practice a practice where my patients would consist of faces I saw at the food store, my childrens school, my community, she said. I decided it would be a perfect place for the practice I had always dreamed of. So in a sense the house built my practice. She hung her shingle in September 2009. Its neat to think that the first doctor of Inverness walked on these floors and now this beautiful piece of history is being used as doctors office, she said. Her husband, the former medical director at the health department, joined his wifes practice in September 2010. Both board-certified family physicians, she focuses on general medicine and he focuses on dermatology and wound care. Adera said their practice is all they believe to be good about being family physicians. My husband and I are from New Jersey and completed our family practice residencies together, she said. In fact, every job we have either accepted or taken has been as a couple, thus our working together in this cozy house is what we cherish and what we always hoped for. Regarding practicing in Inverness, Holstein said he appreciates all of the surrounding medical community. Despite all the negativity were hearing about in medicine and government intrusion and things that can have a negative impact on the practice of medicine, Im still optimistic because the doctors I work with every day, I truly see dedication, he said. I still see that doctors care and its demonstrated in the way they practice here and at the hospital. As a primary care physician and a family physician, I can call on any consultant and theyre always there, giving the same care to every patient, regardless of their ability to pay or their social status. Adera, too, said she loves having a practice in the community where she is raising her family and where she can truly know her patients. We decorated the house like a home because its about hospitality and making patients comfortable, she said. Thats why we wanted to make it pretty and why we love coming to work every day.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at (352) 564-2927 or nkennedy@chronicle online.com.

Associated Press Workers shuck oysters at Jeris Seafood in Smith Point, Texas. Any hope that Texas oysters were going to make up the productivity lost in Mississippi and Louisiana due to flooding and last years oil spill have been killed by the third-worst drought in Lone Star State history. Associated Press Ameneh Bahrami, who was blinded and disfigured by a man who poured acid on her face in 2004 for rejecting his marriage proposal, poses for a portrait March 4, 2009, at a hospital in Barcelona, Spain. Insanity ruling not likely in NorwayOSLO, Norway Its unlikely the right-wing extremist who admitted killing dozens in Norway last week will be declared legally insane because he appears to have been in control of his actions, the head of the panel that will review his psychiatric evaluation told The Associated Press. The decision on Anders Behring Breiviks mental state will determine whether he can be held criminally liable and punished with a prison sentence or sent to a psychiatric ward for treatment. The July 22 attacks were so carefully planned and executed that it would be difficult to argue they were the work of a delusional madman, said Dr. Tarjei Rygnestad, who heads the Norwegian Board of Forensic Medicine. In Norway, an insanity defense requires a defendant be in a state of psychosis while committing the crime with which he or she is charged. That means the defendant has lost contact with reality to the point that hes no longer in control of his own actions. Men accused of spying face verdict TEHRAN, Iran The lawyer for two Americans jailed in Iran on charges of espionage said Sunday the court will announce its verdict within a week, dashing hopes for their immediate release after a final hearing in the case. Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, both 29, have been held in Irans Evin Prison since shortly after their arrest along the border with Iraq exactly two years ago on Sunday. The case has added to tensions between the United States and Iran that were already high over issues like Tehrans disputed nuclear program. The Americans lawyer, Masoud Shafiei, had hoped Sundays final court session would result in their immediate release because it coincided with the two-year anniversary of their arrest and came near the start this week of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan, when pardons are traditionally handed down. From wire reports World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A12 MONDAY, AUGUST 1, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressBEIRUT Syrian security forces backed by tanks and snipers killed more than 70 people in a ferocious assault Sunday as the regime raced to crush dissent ahead of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month that could become a turning point in the nearly 5month-old uprising. President Barack Obama called the reports horrifying and said Assad is completely incapable and unwilling to respond to the legitimate grievances of the Syrian people. The worst carnage was in Hama, the scene of a 1982 massacre by President Bashar Assads late father and predecessor and a city with a history of defiance against 40 years of Assad family rule. On Sunday, corpses were scattered in the streets and hospitals were overwhelmed with bloodied casualties, suggesting the death toll could rise sharply, witnesses said. Ramadan, which begins Monday, will present a critical test for the government, which has unleashed deadly firepower since March but still has not put down the revolt. Daily demonstrations are expected to surge during the holy month, when crowds gather in mosques each evening after the dawn-to-dusk fast. Though the violence has so far failed to blunt the protests, the Syrian government appears to hope it can frighten people from taking to the streets during Ramadan. Protesters are promising to persevere. Having sealed off the main roads into Hama almost a month ago, army troops in tanks pushed into the city from four sides before daybreak. Residents shouted God is great! and threw firebombs, stones and sticks at the tanks, residents said. By mid-morning, the city looked like a war zone, residents said. The crackle of gunfire and thud of tank shells echoed across the city, and clouds of black smoke drifted over rooftops. It looks like Beirut, said Hama resident Saleh Abu Yaman, likening his hometown to the Lebanese capital that still bears the scars of nearly two decades of civil war. Syria has banned most foreign media and restricted coverage, making it difficult to confirm events on the ground. But interviews with witnesses, protesters and activists painted a grim picture Sunday of indiscriminate shelling and sniper fire as residents fought back by erecting barricades and throwing firebombs at their assailants. It appeared the regime was making an example of Hama, a religiously conservative city about 130 miles north of the capital, Damascus. The city has largely has fallen out of government control since June as residents turned on the regime and blockaded the streets against encroaching tanks. The United States and France enraged the government earlier this month when their ambassadors traveled to Hama in a trip designed to demonstrate solidarity with demonstrators. But Sundays deadly siege only ignited more calls for defiance among protesters.

Iranian woman pardons attacker Associated PressTEHRAN, Iran An Iranian woman blinded and disfigured by a man who threw acid into her face stood above her attacker Sunday in a hospital operating room as a doctor was about to put several drops of acid in one of his eyes in court-ordered retribution. The man waited on his knees and wept. What do you want to do now? the doctor asked the 34-year-old woman, whose own face was severely disfigured in the 2004 attack. I forgave him, I forgave him, she responded, asking the doctor to spare him at the last minute in a dramatic scene broadcast on Irans state television. Ameneh Bahrami lost her sight and suffered horrific burns to her face, scalp and body in the attack, carried out by a man who was angered that she refused his marriage proposal. Bahrami, whose face remains visibly burned, was a glimpse of her former self, wearing a touch of pink gloss on her lips and a loosely wrapped headscarf to the hospital where the sentence was to be carried out. She was helped into the building by two women who held both her hands. It is best to pardon when you are in a position of power, Bahrami said, explaining that she did not want revenge. The sobbing man, Majid Movahedi, said Bahrami was very generous. I couldnt imagine being blinded by acid, Movahedi said, as he wept against a wall. She spares man from being blinded by acid Associated PressMULHALL, Okla. The air is cool inside Ray Knights makeshift coffee shop on the main strip in this tiny northern Oklahoma farming community, but there arent many customers. With temperatures topping 100 degrees, the elderly farmers and retirees who Knight says like to gather and swap lies are nowhere to be seen. Theyre also probably not at their doctors appointments, shopping at the store or at their club meetings. Many are afraid to go outside. The heat wave scorching the Great Plains has turned many rural communities into virtual ghost towns for the last month, and also heightened a sense of isolation among the elderly residents who make up much of their population these days. The relentless stretch of 100-degree days, which began unusually early this year and could run for weeks longer, is making their way of life difficult and even dangerous, thwarting their routines for getting the supplies and health care they need. I cant hardly do nothing when its this hot, said Bryce Butler, an 86year-old World War II veteran who stays in his house every day in this town of 200 people. He usually drives to the county seat in Guthrie, about 15 miles away, for errands but now cant go out after noon. Im afraid if I had car trouble, Id have a heat stroke, said Mary Hasley, 79, who lives in nearby Cashion. She has cancelled her doctors appointments. Its just too dangerous. Its been over 100 for more than 30 days in a row in many parts of Oklahoma. In the town of Altus, the average high in June when the weather is normally mild was 105. In the many dozens of rural communities like Mulhall, where there are no longer any stores or other services, the elderly must drive other places for almost everything, and that has become daunting this summer.

Associated PressSMITH POINT, Texas Tracy Woody heaved a hemp bag filled with oysters across the deck of his boat and began inspecting his catch. One shell after another was empty. Its virtually official, Woody said: the third-worst drought in state history has killed any hope that Texas oysters would make up for the severe losses in Mississippi and Louisiana, where the shellfish suffered from last years oil spill and this years massive flooding. Theres no way, said Woody, a fifth-generation oyster fisherman who says he has never seen conditions this bad. Oysters are a $217 million industry on the Gulf Coast. Louisiana and Texas account for 70 percent of the eastern species found in the Gulf and along the East Coast. Pessimism about the harvest this season is growing, even though experts wont offer a specific projection. This year, the drought has made the water in Texas Galveston Bay, where most of the states oysters are harvested, so salty predators and disease are thriving. Conditions are so dire, the deadly dermo parasite has been found in two reefs where its never been seen before. Combined with the losses in the southeastern states, consumers may be hard-pressed to find Gulf Coast oysters this year. Theres not going to be enough oysters, the price is going to go through the roof and the consumers are not going to pay, Woody said, as workers threw hemp sacks of oysters onto wooden pallets. Shrimp and blue crabs may also be affected by the drought. Shrimp has the biggest share of Texas commercial fishing business, with $236 million in revenue in 2009; oysters are right behind, pulling in some $28 million in 2009, an offyear because of Hurricane Ike and other factors. Galveston Bay has not experienced such high salinity since at least the 1980s, said Lance Robinson, regional director of the coastal fisheries division of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

The 24-year-old right-hander held the Seattle Mariners to five hits and a run over seven-plus innings, becoming the first AL rookie with 10 wins as the Tampa Bay Rays rolled to an 8-1 victory Sunday. Hellickson (10-7) is the quickest Tampa Bay rookie to 10 wins since Rolando Arrojo reached the mark on June 27, 1998. He leads AL rookies in wins and is the first one with 10 before August since Bostons Daisuke Matsuzaka (12) in 2007. This all comes as no surprise to Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon. Hes been that guy his whole career, Maddon said. Even in the minor leagues hes been successful. In six minor league seasons, Hellickson was 49-16. He went 12-3 for Triple-A Durham last season before a brief period with the Rays in which he was 4-0 with a 3.47 ERA. Now, he is 14-7 in 23 career starts for the Rays. Sean Rodriguez had three hits, including his fifth home run, and three RBIs. Ben Zobrist added three hits and three RBIs for Tampa Bay. Jason Vargas (6-10) went 5 1-3 innings for the Mariners. He allowed nine hits and six runs, four earned. He walked one and struck out six. Hellickson carried a nohitter into the sixth but Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Jeremy Hellickson gave up just one run over seven innings against the Seattle Mariners on Sunday in Seattle.

Rex Ryan and the New York Jets are giving him that second chance. Im just grateful, a confident yet humble Burress said Sunday night. Im excited about the opportunity and Im going to give them everything Ive got because they put their trust in me to be able to come in and contribute and have an impact. The former Super Bowl star with the Giants signed a one-year deal with the Jets on Sunday after recently being released from prison after serving 20 months on a gun charge. Burress, who turns 34 on Aug. 12, caught the game-winning touchdown in the Giants upset of the unbeaten New England Patriots in the 2008 Super Bowl, before his career derailed after he accidentally shot himself in a New York nightclub later that year. When somethings taken away from you that you love, you know you love it more, he said. You learn that playing in this business is definitely a privilege. I definitely miss being away from the game and the guys and being able to compete every Sunday with the best athletes in the world. Now, the Jets are hoping Burress can revive his career the way Michael Vick did with the Eagles.

I wish him nothing but the best. I hope he goes on and proves us wrong and makes it happen.

Now Browne and his wife, Pam, know. The 52-year-old journeyman captured the biggest victory of his life Sunday, holding off Mark OMeara down the stretch to win the U.S. Senior Open by three strokes. This goes back a long way for us, Browne said of the aspirations he and Pam had first considered some 30 years ago. Avoiding major mistakes, Browne had pars on the first seven holes. After a bogey dropped him into a tie with OMeara, he played the last 10 holes in 1 under, while OMeara made two costly bogeys. I guess from the middle of the back nine on it became a match-play situation, and Ive got zero experience in match play, Browne said, chuckling about his 0-1 record in headto-head competition. But its about putting your ball in play, keeping it out of the junk. The bottom line is minimize your mistakes, maximize your effort, and thats all you can do. After Browne rolled in an anticlimactic 30-foot birdie putt on the final hole to touch off a loud roar from the large gallery ringing the green, the usually stoic Browne raised his arms in triumph. Menard cruises at Brickyard Driver pulls off upset win at Indianapolis Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS Daddys Boy. Silver spoon with secure sponsorship. Talentless hack. Paul Menard has heard all the jealous jeering throughout his unremarkable racing career. On Sunday, he added a new name to that list: Brickyard 400 winner. Menard became NASCARs newest first-time winner Sunday with an upset victory at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a track steeped in tradition for his family. Yes, it came in a car sponsored by the hardware chain owned by his billionaire father. But nobody dared to deny that Menard earned the win and had worked hard to finally make it to Victory Lane in his 167th start at NASCARs highest level. True to his low-key and reserved personality even as he crossed the finish line, Menard had no desire to shove the win in the face of his critics. Were winners in Sprint Cup. Thats the big deal. To do it at Indy, even bigger deal, he said. Cant change peoples opinions. Theyre going to say what they want to say. Thats fine with me. Well celebrate this. Well enjoy it. Whatever they say, they say. Cant control it. I know what Im capable of. Menard has bounced around NASCAR the past few years as teams were eager to land John Menards sponsorship money but failed to spend it on winning race cars. Going into this year, Menards only victory was in 2006 in the secondtier Nationwide Series. CHUCK BALLARO /Special to the Chronicle Crystal River pitcher Rachel Roe delivers a pitch in the first inning Sunday of their game against Fair Play, S.C. at the Senior Little League softball tournament in Fort Myers. Roe allowed just three hits in a 5-0 Crystal River win. C HUCK B ALLARO Special to the ChronicleFORT MYERS Crystal River Senior Little League softball coach J.J. Gomez is growing weary of his squads habit of taking its foot off the accelerator when they have a chance to bury their opponent. On Saturday, in their second game of the Senior Little League softball regional tournament, they jumped to a 5-0 lead, only to watch it nearly evaporate before taking things put another notch. Sunday, in their second game of pool play against Fair Play, S.C., they again jumped out in the first inning before the bats went cold. Thankfully, pitcher Rachel Roe had everything under control, escaping a first-inning jam before dominating in a 5-0 victory at Fleishman Park. The win, coupled with Washington Countys 5-2 win over Moorefield, Va., puts Crystal River on top of its pool as the lone unbeaten team and, barring a catastrophe, should put them into the knockout stage. Roe allowed three hits and hit a batter in five innings with six strikeouts, redeeming herself after a subpar performance Saturday against Washington County, Va. She did good today. Everyone has their good and bad days, Gomez said. We had good defense behind her. Danielle Gomez finished up, allowing a walk in two innings. However, after scoring three in the first inning, Crystal Rivers offense died. We went flat again. Thats our Achilles heel, Gomez said.

Ubaldo Jimenez, Erik Bedard, Rafael Furcal and Mike Adams were also on the move at the end of a topsyturvy weekend, when the surprising Indians, Pirates and Diamondbacks made some of the boldest moves at baseballs trade deadline, shedding those longtime seller tags and shopping for immediate help. All in all, it was a relatively quiet deadline day as the non-waiver cutoff came and went Sunday. The biggest deals came days earlier when All-Star outfielders Carlos Beltran and Hunter Pence changed teams. Detroit made a move, too, getting right-hander Doug Fister from Seattle on Saturday and will add him to the rotation. The Tigers also received reliever David Pauley for two prospects and a player to be named. After a record 18 straight losing seasons, the Pirates are in the thick of it in the NL Central race, and they showed theyre serious in dealing for San Diego outfielder Ryan Ludwick a day after acquiring Baltimore first baseman Derrek Lee. The Diamondbacks bolstered their bullpen, adding Oakland submariner Brad Ziegler as they chase the World Series champion Giants in the NL West. On Saturday, Arizona obtained Jason Marquis from the Nationals. In other deals Sunday: The AL East-leading Red Sox picked up Bedard after a deal for Rich Harden fell through late Saturday. Six prospects were involved in a three-team, sevenplayer trade involving the Los Angeles Dodgers. The St. Louis Cardinals acquired Furcal, a two-time All-Star shortstop, from the Dodgers for Double-A outfielder Alex Castellanos. Texas further bolstered its bullpen a day after adding Baltimore right-hander Koji Uehara by dealing for Adams, San Diegos stellar setup man. Adams, who was 3-1 with a 1.13 ERA in 48 games for the Padres, will be under Texas control through next season. The Padres received minor league pitchers Robbie Erlin and Joe Wieland. that doesnt happen (today). Fair Play had its opportunity in the top of the first inning, loading the bases with one out. But Jordan Martin made a running catch to rob Fancy Nutter of a base hit and possibly two runs and Erin Donald lined out to Bridget Whitley at first to end the threat. In the bottom of the inning, Breanna Martin singled and Meagan McMichen doubled off Fair Play starter Meghan Glenn. Cheyenne Phelps singled home Martin to give Crystal River a 1-0 lead. Ashley Meiman drove home McMichen with a sacrifice fly to make it 2-0. Phelps scored by stealing home after a dropped third strike on Gomez to make it 3-0. Roe cruised, retiring 12 straight at one point while striking out the side in the second inning. I didnt feel well Saturday because of nerves. Today I just said it was another game, Roe said. I knew my defense had my back, so I got comfortable and in the groove. Crystal River upped its lead in the sixth. Danielle Gomez singled and got to third on an error. Martin singled her home to make it 4-0. Three batters later, Tiffany McDonald brought home Martin on a base hit to conclude the scoring. Breanna Martin, Jordan Martin and Whitley had two hits for the victors, who can win the pool with a win over Moorefield at 4:30 p.m. Were gonna do what we always do and hope its enough, Roe said. SENIORS Continued from Page B1 in a dogfighting ring before returning to football in 2009. He was eased back into things by the Eagles before taking over as the starting quarterback last year and capping a terrific season by being selected as the APs Comeback Player of the Year. Burress has a chance to make even more of an immediate mark for the Jets. Hell join the recently resigned Santonio Holmes as one of Mark Sanchezs top receivers. Ive never played with a guy on the other side of me who was that explosive, Burress said of Holmes. Its going to be fun. I think were going to drive some defensive coordinators crazy which way they want to roll their coverage in certain situations, in the red zone, so itll be interesting to see how teams match up against us. PLAX Continued from Page B1 Tseng wins Womens British Associated PressCARNOUSTIE, Scotland Judging by the record books, Yani Tseng is 10 years ahead of Annika Sorenstam. The 22-year-old Taiwanese won the Womens British Open for the second straight year Sunday, beating Brittany Lang by four strokes and becoming the youngest player male or female to capture a fifth major title. Sorenstam was 32 when she won the 2003 LPGA Championship for her fifth major. Tiger Woods was 24 when he won his fifth at the 2000 PGA Championship. Tseng, who is ranked No. 1 and won the LPGA Championship last month, became only the third player to win consecutive British titles, joining Sherri Steinhaurer (1998, 1999) and Debbie Massey (1980, 1981). Tseng shot a 3-under 69 to finish at 16-under 272. She trailed third-round leader Caroline Masson of Germany by two strokes entering the final round. Masson closed with a 78 and tied for fifth.PGA TourWHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. PGA Tour rookie Scott Stallings won the Greenbrier Classic, sinking a birdie putt on the first playoff hole to beat Bob Estes and Bill Haas. After watching Estes and Haas miss their birdie attempts on the 168-yard 18th hole, Stallings curled in a 7-footer for his first tour victory. He flipped his putter, then hugged and high-fived his caddie. Stallings made six birdies on the back nine to make the playoff, where he earned a winners check of $1.08 million and a spot in the Bridgestone Invitational. Estes shot 6-under 64 and was the clubhouse leader at 10 under, then watched as Haas birdied the par-5 17th six groups later to join him after a 67. Stallings, who shot 69, bogeyed the par-5 17th after his drive went out of bounds and he needed a birdie at No. 18 to make the playoff. He sank a 5footer to do it. Jimmy Walker (68), Andres Romero (65), Brendon de Jonge (66), Cameron Tringale (67) and Gary Woodland (69) finished at 9 under.

Maicer Izturis lined an RBI single to left field with two outs in the eighth for the Angels only hit. Verlander (15-5) was trying for his third career no-hitter and second this season. Weaver was ejected for throwing a pitch over Alex Avilas head in the seventh, right after Carlos Guillen showboated on a solo home run infuriating the right-hander. Guillen flipped his bat, posed at the plate and skipped a few steps sideways, prompting Weaver to yell at him before Guillen rounded the bases. Sensing trouble was coming, plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt warned both benches. But Weaver threw the next pitch near Avilas head and was quickly ejected along with Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia. Knowing he would be tossed, Weaver started walking off the field immediately, gesturing angrily and cursing in the direction of Detroits bench. Verlander was attempting to become the fourth pitcher since 1900 to throw three career no-hitters, joining Bob Feller (three), Sandy Koufax (four) and Nolan Ryan (seven). Verlander pitched a no-hitter at Toronto in May and has lost two more bids in the eighth inning this year. Marlins 3, Braves 1 ATLANTA Ricky Nolasco scattered 12 hits, Emilio Bonifacio homered and the Florida Marlins handed the Braves the 10,000th loss in franchise history, beating Atlanta 3-1 Sunday. The Braves began the day savoring a deadline trade for speedy outfielder Michael Bourn, acquired from Houston in a five-player deal. They couldve used him right away, especially when fill-in centerfielder Jose Constanza got thrown out twice on the basepaths. The Braves squandered numerous scoring chances to become only the second team in big league history with 10,000 losses. The Phillies reached that mark in 2007. Nolasco (8-7) lasted 6 2-3 innings. Leo Nunez came on in the ninth for his 30th save. Atlanta starter Tommy Hanson (116) gave up all three Florida runs in six innings. Bourn, a two-time Gold Glover who leads the NL in stolen bases, had to fly in from Milwaukee and wont join the Braves until they open at series at Washington on Monday. The Braves picked up their 10,000th win a couple of weeks ago, including their time in Boston and Milwaukee. Atlanta outhit the Marlins 13-7 but left 10 runners on base. The Braves jumped ahead in the first when Constanza led off with a double, moved to third on Martin Prados single and came home when Freddie Freeman grounded into a double play.

Red Sox 5, White Sox 3 CHICAGO Dustin Pedroia hit a go-ahead two-run single in the seventh, Jason Varitek homered and the Boston Red Sox beat the Chicago White Sox 5-3 Sunday to capture two of three games in their series at U.S. Cellular Field. Alfredo Aceves (7-1), who relieved starter Andrew Miller in the sixth, got the victory with one inning of relief. White Sox star Paul Konerko left the game with a bruised calf after being hit with a pitch by Boston starter Andrew Miller in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Freddy Garcia (10-7) struck out six in six innings and allowed two runs on five hits to send the Yankees 22 games over .500, their highest point of the season. Derek Jeter left after getting hit by a pitch, but X-rays only showed a bruised right middle finger. New York, which hadnt announced any deals by the time the non-waiver trade deadline passed at 4 p.m., improved its major league best record in day games to 31-7 and won for the 20th time in its last 26 home games. Yankees reliever David Robertson struck out the side in the eighth and pitched 1 1-3 innings of perfect relief overall before Mariano Rivera pitched the ninth for his 27th save in 31 chances. Baltimores Jake Arrieta (10-8) walked six batters in five innings, giving up five hits along with four runs. Only two of the runs were earned. The Orioles have lost six of their last seven and 18 times in 24 games. Adam Jones put the Orioles up early with an RBI single on a hit-andrun in the third inning.

He stole second, tagged and went to third on a flyout and came home on Mike Stantons single to center. In the third, the Marlins went ahead for good. Omar Infante reached on an infield single and sprinted all the way around to score when Greg Dobbs doubled into the right-field corner, the ball sticking against the wall. Reds 9, Giants 0 CINCINNATI Johnny Cueto pitched a three-hitter, Joey Votto added a three-run homer and tied his career high with five RBIs and the Cincinnati Reds completed a three-game sweep of the San Francisco Giants with a 9-0 win on Sunday. Todd Frazier hit his first career home run and Drew Stubbs had a career-high four hits as the Reds rebounded from being swept by the New York Mets in four games to post three consecutive wins for the first time since sweeping the Los Angeles Dodgers June 13-15. Cueto (7-4) missed the first month of the season with irritation in his right upper arm and needed 7 1-3 innings to qualify for the National League ERA lead. He went into the game with a 1.88 ERA and lowered it to 1.72 with his first shutout since beating Pittsburgh 9-0 with a one-hitter on May 11, 2010. The complete game was his third of the season, but he lost the other two. Cueto had one walk with six strikeouts while allowing just one baserunner past first base. San Francisco left-hander Barry Zito was handed his third straight after a stretch in which he won three in a row as the Giants were swept for the fifth time this season and first since losing three straight at Oakland June 17-19.

Hellickson retired the next three batters on a flyout and two foulouts. The fastball command was there, getting ahead of guys early and just throwing strikes, Hellickson said. When youre getting quick outs and throwing strikes it gives you a little more confidence. I just kept attacking the zone. It was a sloppy start for the Mariners, and the Rays took advantage. Desmond Jennings reached on a game-opening error by shortstop Brendan Ryan. Jennings made it to third on a steal of second and a throwing error by catcher Miguel Olivo. Evan Longoria then hit a sharp grounder to third baseman Figgins, who came home with it. Jennings, who broke on contact, scored with an evasive slide around Olivos tag attempt.

Distributor Warner Bros. said Sunday that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 crossed the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office. Its soon expected to pass Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which is this years top grossing movie at $1.03 billion. The last of the eight films about the young wizard is the first in the franchise to reach the billion dollar mark. The previous best global haul was $974.8 million for the original film, 2001s Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone. The 2009 film Avatar holds the record for the biggest worldwide box office haul, grossing $2.8 billion. Its followed by another James Cameron film, Titanic, which brought in $1.8 billion. Four shot, one dies after concert CLEVELAND A man fired several shots from a handgun during a large fight near an outdoor concert venue featuring funk music artist George Clinton killing one person and wounding three others, police said Sunday. The fight erupted before 10 p.m. Saturday at an intersection near Luke Easter Park, the venue for the eighth annual Unity in the Park festival. Police didnt have a description of the shooter, and no arrests had been made. It was unclear how long after Clinton or the other musicians performed that the shooting erupted or what prompted it. Associated PressLOS ANGELES Little blue Smurfs and not-so-little green men from space are in a photo finish for the No. 1 spot at the weekend box office. Daniel Craig and Harrison Fords sci-fi Western Cowboys & Aliens and the family adventure The Smurfs both opened with $36.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. That leaves Sonys Smurfs and Universals Cowboys & Aliens tied for the top spot. Figuring out the No. 1 movie will have to wait until final numbers are counted today. In all my years, Ive never really seen a race this close, said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com. Generally, in the world of movie box office, $1 million is a close call, so to have two films in a dollar-to-dollar tie is somewhat unprecedented. Studios often round off their Sunday numbers, which include Friday and Saturday totals plus an estimate of Sunday business based on how similar movies have done in the past. So Sunday figures typically are rounded off to the nearest $50,000 or $100,000, with more accurate, to-thedollar numbers generally coming in todays final tally. But Universal released an estimate of $36,206,250, which would have put Cowboys & Aliens a fraction ahead of The Smurfs in Sundays rankings. So Sony, which had reported a rounded-off figure of $36.2 million, matched that $36,206,250 estimate for The Smurfs. Were going with that extra $6,250, because its just too close to call, said Rory Bruer, head of distribution at Sony. It just seems like the most fair thing to do is call it a tie and let (today) sort it out. Studios jockey for the top box-office spot to earn No. 1 film in America bragging rights in advertising for the coming week. Going into the weekend, Cowboys & Aliens seemed to have the edge, with analysts figuring it might top $40 million, while The Smurfs might come in around $30 million. But the two movies met in the middle, Cowboys & Aliens doing worse than expected and The Smurfs doing better. This is truly a photo finish, said Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal. Nobody can call it. The truth of the matter is, its a tie, and with two totally different kinds of films. Cowboys & Aliens stars Craig as an amnesiac wanderer who teams with cattle baron Ford to take on hulking aliens that invade a town in the Old West. The Smurfs brings the blue cartoon creatures to the big screen, with a voice and live-action cast that includes Katy Perry, Hank Azaria, George Lopez and Neil Patrick Harris. Because it opened in fewer theaters, The Smurfs did more business on average at cinemas. Playing in 3,395 locations, The Smurfs averaged $10,665 a theater, compared to a $9,655 average in 3,750 cinemas for Cowboys & Aliens. The Smurfs had a ticket-price advantage with 3-D screenings, which cost a few dollars more and accounted for 45 percent of business. But 25 percent of its business came from children under 12, who get in at discount prices, while Cowboys & Aliens drew adult crowds paying full admission. So its tough to determine which movie actually sold more tickets. The weekends other new wide release, the Warner Bros. romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love, opened modestly at No. 5 with $19.3 million. The movie stars Steve Carell as a onewoman man who learns the art of seduction from a playboy (Ryan Gosling) after his marriage falls apart. The previous weekends top movie, Captain America: The First Avenger, slipped to No. 3 with $24.9 million and raised its domestic total to $116.8 million. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 pulled in $21.9 million to become the franchises top-grossing chapter at $318.5 million domestically. Katherine Hepburn Spotlight on PEOPLE E NTERTAINMENT Page B4 MONDAY, AUGUST 1, 2011 Tie at the box office C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Todays Birthday: On more than one occasion in the year ahead, you could find yourself in the position of being able to bring two dissenting parties together for a productive purpose. Each time you go out of you way to do so, itll benefit you as well. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Before turning down all of your ideas, you should put them to the test. A few of them that youve thought dubious will work out better than you think. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Although you can be a doubter more often than a believer, dont hesitate to follow the financial projections you and another have diligently researched and now believe can succeed. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If you hope to successfully sell your ideas, do not circumvent any of the issues. When you have an important point to make, be as direct as circumstances permit. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Have faith in being able to achieve positive fulfillments, and dont let doubt dash your hopes. Certain factors that arent obvious to you or others will be working out to your benefit. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Those who like you want good things to happen for you, so dont be fearful of imposing upon a good friend for a special favor. She or he will be delighted to help out. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Do what you can to achieve an important objective, because direct and strong action is the only way itll ever be accomplished. Delays will only lessen your chances. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Instead of weaving your way through subordinates who have no power and could actually end up being a hindrance, go straight to the head honcho for what you want. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) If you hold firmly to your beliefs about a commercial arrangement and what you expect from it, things could go rather well. Just remember to be fair, smart and patient. Aries (March 21-April 19) Although youll do well working on your own, you would do better teaming up with someone who has skills you dont possess. If you can ally with someone to achieve better results, do so. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Because youre someone who has had the patience to wait it out, seeds youve sown in the past should be ready for harvest, making for a profitable and productive day for you. Gemini (May 21-June 20) If you take the time to use your organizational skills, you will be able to control most developments that might arise with great efficacy. The one exception may be your own resources. Cancer (June 21-July 22) As long as you and your mate dont clash and get in each others way, your collective efforts will greatly please both of you. It pays to be supportive instead of combative.

Cowboys & Aliens, Smurfs both earn $36.2 million in ticket sales Aiello turns his grief into stage fuel Associated PressNEW YORK These days, Danny Aiello is pouring his personal tragedy into a national one. The Academy Awardnominated actor, still reeling from the death last year of his 53-year-old son from pancreatic cancer, has found solace in the strangest of places: Sept. 11, 2001. The star of such films as The Godfather, Part II and Do the Right Thing is currently appearing off-Broadway in The Shoemaker, an emotionally charged play about loss and grieving set on 9/11. Ive been looking for distractions, the 78-year-old actor said during an interview where he showed flashes of both his tenderness and his frustration. Ive found a vehicle that permits me the opportunity to vent my anger. His son, stuntman and stunt coordinator Danny Aiello III, died in May 2010. His parents are still shocked by how quickly the disease took him. My wife wont get out of bed, Aiello said. In the play, written by Susan Charlotte, Aiello plays an Italian-Jewish cobbler who worries about a young World Trade finance worker who became his customer when she brought in a pair of high heels to be mended. The shoemaker feels certain she must have just died at ground zero, a loss that reminds him of his strained relationship with his absent daughter, the memory of his long-deceased father and the Holocaust. It is a wrenching performance, leaving Aiello drenched in his own tears. He says he draws on his memories of the terrible day when he saw the twin towers fall and from the staggering loss of his son. I dont know why it happens. I dont bring him up, but he comes up and Im crying. Im not fake crying. The tears are coming out, he said. I dont draw on it. Its just there. Directed by Antony Marsellis, the two-act drama is being presented at the Acorn Theatre in Midtown, with Alma Cuervo and Lucy DeVito daughter of Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman in the supporting cast. Aiello first appeared in the original one-act version of The Shoemaker in 2001, which became the movie A Broken Sole, featuring Margaret Colin. Danny Aiello
E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, A UGUST 1, 2011 B5 Ben Franklin said, Do not anticipate trouble or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight. He would not have made a good bridge player, because you must anticipate trouble and worry about what might happen, presumably indoors, out of the sunlight. This deal is a tough example. You are in four spades. West leads the club king, cashes the club ace, and shifts to a diamond. You win with your ace and draw two rounds of trumps, West discarding a heart on the second round. How would you continue? North might have responded one no-trump because his hand is so unappealing. Wests first two plays showed that he started with ace-kingdoubleton of clubs. He did the reverse of his normal play. (It is the same for third hand. When partner leads a low card and third hand has A-K-x, he wins with the king, the bottom of touching honors. If instead he wins with the ace and cashes the king, he shows ace-kingdoubleton.) You have three top losers (one spade and two clubs), so must avoid a heart loser. It is no good cashing the king and leading low to dummys ace, because East will ruff and return his last trump. West will eventually take a heart trick for down one. You must play a heart to dummys ace and lead a heart toward your hand. It cannot help East to ruff, so you win in your hand and return to dummy with a club to the jack. (You did throw your queen under Wests ace, didnt you?) Then another heart through East makes the contract.

We have a toddler. The problem is, over the past few years, my wife has cut down sex to roughly once every couple of months. I do what I can to keep her happy and have even bargained with her to get sex by offering to take her out to eat at her favorite restaurant or giving back massages, but she wont discuss it. As soon as I bring it up, she gets angry, and it puts her in a bad mood. My wife doesnt seem to care about my needs at all, and I cant help but resent her for doing this to me. The rest of our marriage is solid, but this one issue has me considering divorce. I dont want to cheat on her, but I want to be with someone who cares about me. I can deal with sex as infrequently as once a month, but there are stretches where its been half a year. I could understand if she had a medical problem, but she doesnt. Im being pushed to the brink. My wife has no interest in talking to a counselor. She says no one else needs to know about our problems. Should I consider counseling on my own? Is there a different way of having this conversation so she can see my point of view? Sexually Frustrated Dear Frustrated: There could be any number of reasons for your wifes lack of interest in sex, including a drop in libido since the birth of her child, exhaustion, hormonal imbalance, resentment toward you if she does the majority of childcare and household chores, even an affair. But by refusing to discuss it, she is trying to sweep the problem under the rug, which wont work. Stop pressuring her for sex, either by asking or by bargaining, and get some counseling for yourself. There may be ways to improve your approach. Tell your wife you are doing it to save your marriage. Dear Annie: I live in a 32-unit townhouse association. The manager is also one of the residents. Recently, one familys dog accidentally bit a neighbor. The manager was not there when it happened, but he encouraged the victim to sue the dogs owner. Am I wrong to think that the manager should remain neutral and not pit one neighbor against another? J. Dear J.: While the manager should not escalate hostilities, the conversation may not have been encouragement. The victim may have asked the manager what to do, and one option was to sue the owner of the dog. If the association offers mediation, we hope both parties will make use of this service. Dear Annie: You printed a letter from Fed Up, who has lived across the street from her nosy, competitive sister-in-law for 20 years. I live across the street from my husbands sister and her husband. I had often said, I dont want to be so near them. Please tell Fed Up that you never know when youre going to need your family. I dont know what I would have done without those two last year. One morning, I woke up and dressed for a family outing. When I went in to wake my husband, he wasnt breathing. He had had a heart attack in his sleep. My brother-in-law was here in seconds, and though we were able to revive my husband with CPR, he died a few days later. Fed Up should think before complaining, because I can tell you, you dont appreciate what you have until its gone. Its not always perfect having my in-laws across the street, but you never know when you will need them. Take my word for that.
