United Way fundraiser draws dancers, fans Staff Report CITRUS SPRINGS he Citrus Springs Community Center was the place to be Saturday night, as more than 400 turned out to cheer their choice of five dancing couples competing in the So You Think You Can Dance Like a Star competition. By the time the night ended, $16,222 was raised for the United Way of Citrus County via contributions that accompanied votes in the Peoples Choice category. Thanks to the expertise of dancing partner Vickie Humphrey, Sheriffs Lt. Phil Royal overcame a self-acknowledge lack of rhythm, giving the couple first place in both the Peoples Choice and the Judges Choice categories. The ratio of attendees was heavy on sheriffs office and school personnel, with those groups cheering in force for their couples for choice which, in the case of the school system, included Superintendent Sandra Sam Himmel and Patrick Simon, DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Boots were scooting and costume dresses were flailing Saturday evening at the So You Think You Can Dance ... Like a Star fundraiser for United Way at the Citrus Springs Auditorium. Phil Royal and Vickie Humphrey boogied it up to take first place on the judges ballots, also winning the Peoples Choice award for their efforts. More than $16,000 was raised by people voting for their favorites during the event. S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterDuring a time when some industries are struggling, one quirky business is booming, easily becoming a favorite among anglers and construction workers looking for a way to keep things cool during the hot summer months. Ice vending machines are popping up all over the place and in some most unusual locations. Whether its sitting in the middle of a barren parking lot or hiding in the shade next to a local business, these machines are proving to be a good way to make money. Rex Rusaw, a real estate appraiser and Crystal River resident, is co-owner of an ice vending machine on State Road 44 located in the Taylor Rental parking lot. He and his two business partners have had the machine for three years. Rusaw said it was the third machine installed in the county. As an appraiser of commercial properties, Rusaw said he has seen the ice vending business take off, spotting machines from Gainesville all the way to Tampa Bay and as far east as Orlando. Theyre everywhere, he said. The idea to buy the machine came from his brother-in-law, Rusaw said INSIDE AUGUST 15, 2011 Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best Community VOLUME 117 ISSUE 8 50 CITRUS COUNTY Instant classic: Rookie wins PGA in dramatic fashion /B1 ENTERTAINMENT: HBO show Feminist icon Gloria Steinem, now 77, appears in an HBO documentary./ Page GLOBAL CLIMATE: Ice puzzle Researchers measure the movement and internal cracking of Jakobshavn Glacier in Greenland./ Page A7 INDEX Comics....................B7 Crossword................B6 Editorial....................A8 Entertainment..........B5 Horoscope................B5 Lottery Numbers......B4 Lottery Payouts........B5 Movies......................B7 Obituaries................A6 TV Listings................B6 Classifieds................B8 ONLINE POLL: Your choice?How are you responding to the volatile stock market?

Beginning Sunday, Oct. 2, through Sunday, Oct. 9, all veterans, their family and friends and the public are invited to the inaugural Nature Coast All Veterans Reunion at the former Dixie Hollins property north of Crystal River. Sponsored by the American Legion Post 225 in Floral City, with the Aaron Weaver Chapter 776 Order of the Purple Heart, this event features four separate memorials: Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall, Purple Heart Mural Memorial, Korean War Memorial and The Moving Tribute, a list of all who have fallen in the global war on terror. The purpose is to bring veterans together and bring awareness to what veterans have done, said Richard Nuclear plant delays rankle residents Associated PressST. PETERSBURG A state office that represents consumers in utility matters will argue that because of uncertainty over the future of a proposed Levy County nuclear plant, customers advance payments should be cut in half. The St. Petersburg Timesreported Sunday that since 2009, customers of North Carolina-based Progress Energy have been paying for a nuclear plant that will not generate a kilowatt for years. State consumer advocates say they have evidence the plant wont open until 2027. The state Office of Public Counsel will argue that customers should get some of their money back. Theyve spent enough money, said deputy public counsel Charles Rehwinkel. The company said it is sticking to its estimated timeline for opening in 2021. The companys interest in the Levy project remains steady, spokeswoman Suzanne Grant said. Advance payments for the average Progress customer are expected to reach $50 a month by 2020. The current fee for the average Progress customer is $4.99 a month, but that is expected to rise significantly in coming years. The Public Service Commission will decide the dispute after listening to evidence this week in the regulatory equivalent of a trial. Because of the law, Progress customers may not want to get their hopes up too soon. Florida lawmakers in spring 2006 passed a law allowing advance charges as a way to meet increasing power needs and speed up the process of getting a plant online. By comparison, North Carolina, where Progress also operates, doesnt allow advance charges for nuclear plants. The initial plans for the nuclear plant called for a $4 billion project on a 3,000acre site in Levy County about 8 miles north of the utilitys Crystal River nuclear and coal energy complex. The initial target was for the plant to be ready by 2016. Regulatory and other issues have caused delays. And the latest cost projection has soared to around $20 billion. There has been some good news recently for plant supporters. The Westinghouse AP1000 reactor that will be installed at the Levy plant cleared a crucial safety review from regulators. However, a group of public interest and environmental groups have challenged the review, saying it was inadequate in light of the disaster in Japan.

The TRIM Notice contains important information including two proposed tax scenarios for this year compared to last years actual taxes, proposed millage rates by taxing authorities, dates and time of budget public hearings where the final millage rates are set, certain non-ad valorem assessments and, on the reverse side, the breakdown of value information. This is the second year for a twopage format for the TRIM notice. Page one presents three tax scenarios to our citizens, Greene said, while page two provides a complete explanation of values, exemptions, classifications and other factors affecting value under the provisions of state law. Many people focus only on page one, the bottom line, their taxes, and go no further provided they like what they see. Property taxes are computed by two factors: the taxable value multiplied times the applicable millage rates for the given location. The property appraisers office only controls the market value, and state law dictates the assessed and taxable values in that equation. With the number of variables available under Florida law affecting assessed and taxable values today such as caps, exemptions, classifications and portability transfers, values for similar properties can vary significantly. This makes the explanation of values all the more complicated. Floridas recapture rule affects those homeowners whose assessed value has been capped under Save Our Homes, and that assessed value is lower than the market value. For such properties, the assessed value will increase by 1.5 percent this year as required by state law. This happens even though their market value may be dropping. The public is often frustrated by recapture, but it only happens in a down market. This remains the single most common question we receive in my office, Greene said. The voters will have an opportunity to weigh in on this practice of recapture, when a constitutional amendment appears on the 2012 ballot. They will get to decide whether or not to continue recapture, Greene said. This does not alter or affect the cap protection of 3 percent under Save Our Homes. In 2011, almost 19,000 homesteaded properties are still subject to recapture, where the capped assessed value is lower than the market value. More than 28,000 properties are no longer seeing the effects of recapture. The majority of homesteads in Citrus County now have values dictated directly by the market, so this provides the opportunity to see tax relief based upon the value side of the tax equation. The property appraisers staff stands ready to answer the publics questions on values. Millage rates are the responsibility of each of the taxing authorities. Detailed value questions can be answered by the appraiser for the location in question by calling the phone number located midway on page two of the TRIM Notice. For 25 days from the issuance of the TRIM notice, values can be discussed and any issues resolved informally. On or before Sept. 6, if one still has a difference of opinion, a citizen may file a petition to the Value Adjustment Board. Greene said, My philosophy and approach is to encourage people to get in early and work with us to resolve questions before it becomes necessary to pursue a formal application. We wont agree in every case, but at least let us take the time to try to work things out. Geoffrey Greene Citrus County property appraiser. States grocery stores recall beef products ON THE NET USDAs Meat and Poultry site: Ask Karen, the FSIS virtual representative: Blood DRIVES Three arrested in killing after partyFORT PIERCE The St. Lucie County Sheriffs Office said three people were arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of a 22-year-old man.

Police: Key Largo motel clerk robbedKEY LARGO The Monroe County Sheriffs Office said a Key Largo motel clerk was robbed at gunpoint, and the suspect got away. Investigators said the victim reported he was in a back office of the Key West Inn on Ocean Drive doing paperwork at 3 a.m. Sunday when he heard a noise near the front desk. When he walked up front, he saw a man with a gun. The man said, give me all your money. The sheriffs office said the clerk handed the suspect the cash drawer. Investigators said the suspect then tore the phone from the wall and fled on foot, after stuffing the money into a black bag. Deputies searched the area, but did not catch the suspect.

The correct answer for the puzzle appeared in the correction box on Page G2 of the Sunday Comics section; however, it was incorrectly labeled as the answer to the July 31 Jumble. The correct answer to the Jumble is below. The Chronicle regrets the errors. Answer : Viewing the solar explosions through the telescope became difficult when PIRACY DEDUCT FLINCH ENSURE EMBLEM WAIVERTEMPERS FLARED Oh no! My phone took a bath now what? Editors note: Today, the Chronicle begins the monthly column Stuff You Should Know written by staff writer Nancy Kennedy. In it she will be talking to local people about topics of interest about a variety of stuff, from how to raise chickens at home to what to do with pets in an emergency. Look for Stuff every third Monday.T he simple answer: Dont get your cell phone wet. Dont take it in the pool or use it while in the tub. Dont take it with you in a steamy sauna. Check your pockets before you do a load of laundry. Tattoo it on your brain: Cell phones + moisture = almost certain mayhem, death and destruction for any electronic device. But what if youve discovered your phone has already gone through the rinse and spin cycle what do you do? Dont do anything dont try to turn it on, warned Tom Johnson, Verizon corporate executive at the Verizon office in Inverness. If you turn it on immediately, it may burn it up. Although the phone most likely will be DOA, your cell phone company customer service representative may be able to save your contacts and photos. Johnson said cell phones, other than the waterproof models, are extremely sensitive to moisture and heat, even from being held by hot, sweaty hands for a long period of time, such as while playing games with the device. Even dampness or sweat will either ruin the contacts inside the phone or cause the battery to swell. A lot of times moisture will get into the screen and cause it to be inoperable. Smartphones produce a lot of heat, just like laptop computers, and need air, he said. One home remedy that may work with a wet phone is putting it in a zipper-lock plastic bag filled with dry, uncooked rice and letting it sit for at least three or four days. The rice may draw out moisture. A few local victims of cell phone immersion shared their thoughts via Facebook: Both times I dropped a phone in water they died. Dead. Deceased. Defunct. But the first time was a really crazy story involving a bathhouse at a state park in South Carolina, a commode and a whole bunch of park maintenance men. Linda Caward, Inverness Kendall (daughter) took my Blackberry into the bathtub once to clean it off for you, Mommy, and it survived for at least 6 months after. Meredith Linley, Crystal River Actually I washed my husbands cell phone in the laundry. We dried it out in front of the air return for a month. No luck. We put it in rice for a few weeks. No luck. I gave up and put it in the drawer. More than a month later I was getting ready for work and I hear the Verizon music coming from the drawer. Its been fine ever since!

Juvenile jails probe continues Associated PressWEST PALM BEACH Further scrutiny of Floridas juvenile justice system is underway following published reports that powerful anti-psychotic drugs were flowing freely into state jails for kids. The Palm Beach Post reported Sunday that the juvenile justice departments inspector general is focusing on whether department doctors are prescribing an excessive amount of mind-altering drugs to kids, whether the department can adequately track prescriptions, and whether department doctors have taken payments from drugmakers. A document obtained by the newspaper said the probe will pay special attention to whether theres a pattern of prescribing anti-psychotics and other drugs among specific companies hired by the state to run programs. A department spokesman said the probe still is active and ongoing. State Attorney General Pam Bondis office said months ago it was looking into the Medicaid billing habits of doctors who worked in Floridas juvenile jails. As it turns out, most children in state custody are eligible for Medicaid coverage, a circumstance the Department of Juvenile Justice is eyeing as its own, in-house probe enters its fourth month. The drugs at issue are very powerful, and can have harmful side effects. Drugmaker AstraZeneca in June added a new warning to the label for the anti-psychotic drug Seroquel that cautions that the drug can cause serious heart problems. The move came at the urging of the Food and Drug Administration. The Postreported that during a two-year period it reviewed, Floridas juvenile justice department bought more than 215,000 tablets of Seroquel for juvenile jails and programs that can house no more than 2,300 kids on a given day. There are no easy answers in terms of the questions raised by the investigation, DJJ spokesman C.J. Drake said. Its a case where there are numerous sources of information and documentation that require careful analysis. There are a lot of moving parts to this issue. Miami-Dade kindergartners lack full immunizations Associated PressMIAMI More than 23 percent of kindergartners in Miami-Dade County lacked complete immunizations in the previous school year, the highest percentage of Floridas 67 counties. Thats according to a report in The Miami Herald on Sunday that also noted that kids without the required vaccinations are allowed to go to class under a provisional status. The newspaper reported that in Miami-Dade, only 76.7 percent of kindergartners had complete immunizations in 2010-11. Statewide, 91.1 percent of public school children began kindergarten in the last school year with complete immunizations. Officials in Miami-Dade are concerned that the low rate puts students and their communities at higher risk of catching measles, mumps and whooping cough. And, they are aware that the numbers have worsened significantly from just five years ago, when 92.8 percent of kindergarteners in MiamiDade schools had their immunizations completed. Were not dismissing this, said Lillian Rivera, administrator with the Miami-Dade County Health Department. Were worried about it. There have been 156 cases of measles so far this year in the U.S., the most since 1997. Most of the cases involved unvaccinated children. Florida has had seven measles cases all in unvaccinated kids. On March 7, Dr. Shairi Turner, deputy secretary for health of the Florida Department of Health, sent a memo to all county health departments asking for action to decrease the occurrence of vaccineprevent able diseases by increasing immunization coverage levels among school-age children. The goal for kindergartens, she reminded them, is at least 95 percent. To be able to attend school in Florida, a child is expected to show proof of a series of vaccinations or an acceptable exemption. A small portion of those unvaccinated are given permanent exemptions on religious grounds, or because of allergies or because they have a weakened immune system. The rest are allowed in under temporary medical exemptions. Last year, 21.9 percent of Miami-Dade kindergarteners more than one in five had such an exemption, which students can get if they received the first dose of every required shot. School suppliers West Nile virus close to county C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterEvidence of West Nile virus just one mile south of the Citrus County boundary with Hernando County was announced Friday Dr. Guangye Hu, Hernando County Mosquito Control director, said one of Hernando Countys sentinel chickens in the Royal Highlands area on Nuthatch Road has tested positive for the West Nile virus, a mosquito-borne illness. This means that mosquitoes carrying the virus are present in northwestern Hernando County. Five flocks of chickens maintained throughout Hernando County are tested periodically to determine if they are carrying a mosquito-borne virus. The viruses are not harmful to chickens, but they can be deadly to humans and horses. West Nile virus is a rare disease that can cause inflammation of the brain and is serious in humans. No human cases have been reported in Hernando County, but anyone in the area where the virus is circulating could get infected. The risk for infection is highest for people who live in or visit woodland habitats and people who work outside or participate in outdoor recreational activities because of greater exposure to potentially infected mosquitoes. Symptoms appear four to 10 days after the bite of an infected mosquito occurs. Symptoms include sudden onset of headache, high fever, chills and vomiting. Anyone who has been bitten by mosquitoes and is experiencing these symptoms should seek treatment from a medical provider. Citrus County Mosquito Control District performs a number of surveillance and monitoring functions to control its mosquito populations. It has at least 11 sentinel chicken sites around the county. Each site has six chickens. Blood is drawn weekly and tested for eastern equine encephalitis and St. Louis encephalitis in addition to West Nile virus. For information, call (352) 527-7478. Residents should follow these steps: Use insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535 or oil of lemon eucalyptus. Wear long sleeves and pants from dusk to dawn when mosquitoes are feeding. Have secure, intact screens on windows and doors. Eliminate mosquitobreeding sites by emptying standing water from containers. Horse owners are encouraged to have their horses vaccinated every six months. Its a case where there are numerous sources of information and documentation that require careful analysis. There are a lot of moving parts to this issue. C.J. Drake spokesman, Florida .Department of Juvenile Justice Jimmie Smith R-Inverness.


T OM K RISHER AP Business WriterDETROIT A little good news could bring some stability back to Wall Street this week as investors look for bargains amid chaos. Then again, bad news could lead to continued volatility. It all depends on the news of the day. The Dow Jones industrial average swung more than 400 points four days in a row last week, and jittery investors are looking to economic data for clues about where its headed next. Coming up this week are a raft of earnings from retailers, statistics on housing starts, jobless claims and industrial production, and a meeting between German and French leaders on worries about European government debt. Walmart Stores Inc. and Target Corp. report earnings on Tuesday and Wednesday and could provide a healing balm to investors. The retail chain results will be a key indicator because the stock market has frightened consumers and their spending is essential for the economy to recover, said Mark Luschini, chief investment strategist with Janney Montgomery Scott in Philadelphia. (Those results) will be telling as to whether the consumer is in a position to help power the economy forward, he said. The recent sharp decline in the market means there are bargains to be had. Since the markets highs of April 29, the Dow is down 12 percent. The Standard & Poors 500 index has fallen 9 percent since Aug. 1, mostly on worries about the U.S. economy and debt crisis in Europe. Market pros likely will be hunting for bargains Monday, especially in stocks that pay relatively high dividends since the Federal Reserve has said interest rates will stay low for the next two years, Luschini said. Citrus County Sheriffs OfficeDUI arrest Terrence Edward Sullivan 50, of 9636 Monica Court, Inverness, at 6:15 p.m. Friday, on a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence, following a traffic stop on State Road 44 for driving erratically.

Emergency medical services responded and advised that Sullivans vital signs were within acceptable limits, but he appeared to be impaired.

Quite a catch KALISPELL, Mont. A 10year-old Montana boy fishing with a rubber worm caught a largemouth bass that state wildlife officials say could be nearly twice as old as he is. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks biologist Mark Deleray said the largemouth bass caught and released in a Flathead River slough by Garrett Frost could be as much as 19 years old. Deleray says that may be the oldest largemouth bass on record for Montana. The Kalispell boy caught the fish July 16 in Rose Creek Slough. Deleray says the fish was 20 to 22 inches long and weighed about 3.5 pounds. Garrett removed a tag that had been placed on the fish in 1997 before releasing it. Biologists estimate the fish was 5 years old when it was tagged, based on the fact it was just over 14 inches long and weighed 1.5 pounds. Classical solution COLUMBUS, Ohio Shoppers and employees say an Ohio convenience store has fewer people hanging around and hassling customers since the business started blaring classical music. Customers tells WBNS-TV that loitering has declined quickly outside the United Dairy Farmers location in the Columbus Short North neighborhood. Workers whove also noticed a change say the new music went on earlier this week as part of upgrades at the store. Shopper Allie Beck said the classical music is loud she can hear it all the way down the street. But she said its an improvement over all the people who used to ask for change or bother passers-by outside the store. Not lobster NEW YORK New York seafood lovers have been schooled. Due to the keen eye of a New Orleans writer, a famous destination for Manhattan foodies is now changing the name of its Lobster Salad. The upscale Zabars deli had used that term for 20 years, but it turns out there was no lobster. During a recent visit, the New Orleans food writer read the ingredients. The label read: wild fresh water crayfish. Owner Saul Zabar reasoned that crayfish, while not Maine lobster, is a distant cousin. Then he got a call from the Maine Lobster Council, which begged to differ. The salad goes for $16.95 a pound. Zabar said using actual lobster would make it even more expensive. Its now renamed Seafare Salad. Pterodactyl prankCARDIFF-BY-THE-SEA, Calif. A bronze surfer statue near San Diego thats been the target of many gags has been hit again. Unknown pre-dawn prank sters on Saturday constructed an elaborate scene of a pterodactyl seemingly about to pluck the sculpture of a young surfer off his board. The pranksters placed a painted backdrop of a volcanic eruption behind the surfer statue. The Los Angeles Times reports crowds of gawkers and photographers gathered around the 16-foot creation after the sun rose. Last year someone surrounded the roadside statue in Cardiff-by-the-Sea with a papier mache model of a great white shark that appeared to be swallowing it whole. The $120,000 sculpture called Magic Carpet Ride has been derided by local surfers who criticize the boys pose as too awkward. Saddle up LOUISVILLE, Ky. Louisville police have added small, portable computers to the equipment used by mounted officers riding horseback patrols. The computers, known as Mobile Data Terminals, are fastened to the breast collars and lie on the horses backs. Lt. Dan Assef, who oversees the mounted patrol unit, told The Courier-Journal the computers give horseback officers access to emergency dispatch and the police departments records management system instead of having to call in for information.

Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO For gold sellers on eBay, the recent stock market turmoil has been a boon for business. Gold and silver sales on eBay had already been rising steadily over the past several years so much so that eBay Inc. created a special area in May to make it easier for buyers to find sellers. Now, activity on that part of the site, the Bullion Center, is intensifying as consumers unnerved by the economic uncertainty flock to gold in hopes it will be a stable investment. When people are coming down to the question, Do they want to have cash in the bank or gold in their hands? the answer is theyd rather have gold or silver, said Jacob Chandler, CEO of Great Southern Coins, the largest seller of precious metals on eBay. The stock market just ended one of its most volatile weeks in years, prompted in part by a downgrade in the nations credit rating and fears of another recession. The Dow Jones industrial average fell nearly 6 percent on Monday, its worst one-day drop since December 2008. Then the index rose Tuesday, fell Wednesday and rose Thursday and Friday to end the week 2 percent lower than a week ago. Through most of last week, the average selling price increased for gold bullion bars or coins stamped with their weight and level of purity. According to the most recent data available from eBay, sales of 1-ounce gold American Eagle coins and 1-ounce gold Pamp Suisse bars rose steadily from Aug. 5 to Wednesday, before dipping slightly on Thursday. On Aug. 5, when Standard & Poors lowered the nations credit rating, American Eagle coins were selling for an average of $1,800 among eBays featured sellers. The average price of the coins, produced by the U.S. Mint, rose more than 8 percent to $1,952 on Wednesday, before dropping to $1,915 on Thursday. The Pamp Suisse brand of gold bars sold for an average of $1,787 on Aug. 5 and climbed nearly 8 percent to $1,927 by Wednesday. On Thursday, the bars dropped slightly to $1,890. Even before last weeks market turbulence, investors were cautious because economic signals in the U.S. and overseas pointed toward trouble. The Dow index fell 6 percent in the week ending Aug. 6. That week, the number of gold buyers on eBay rose 11 percent compared with the years weekly average. The number of gold sellers rose 14 percent. EBay would not provide the total number of buyers and sellers. With all the turmoil in the markets, this is seen as a way to diversify, said Anthony Delvecchio, eBays vice president of business management and strategy for eBays North America business. EBay, which is based in San Jose, Calif., does not impose minimum purchase amounts for bullion. Sellers offer gold both through auctions and Buy It Now fixed-price sales. The increased popularity of gold on eBay echoes whats happening in the broader gold market, where prices have spiked during the past two years. Gold traded at about $900 per ounce in the summer of 2008, before the financial crisis unfolded that year. It passed $1,600 in late May and briefly rose above $1,800 for the first time on Wednesday before pulling back to $1,784. On Friday, gold fell to $1,740.60 per ounce, still nearly twice the summer 2008 prices. Great Southern Coins has benefited from this uptick. Chandler said the company is selling more gold lately, and its silver sales remain strong, too. Chandler estimated his business has nearly quadrupled in the past 45 days, and he said it appeared to be up about five or six times during the past week, with most of this growth coming from sales on eBay. Daniel Hirsch, a New York-based statistician who recently purchased more than a dozen gold coins on eBay from Great Southern Coins, said he started buying gold less than a year ago in an effort to expand his investment portfolio. Its kind of a safe haven and a hedge against low interest rates, he said.

Katherine Martin EBay gold sales up on market turmoil Govt denies request despite judges order Associated PressLONDON, Ky. For more than two decades, a pair of sisters in rural Kentucky have lived without Social Security numbers, doing odd jobs like bartending and making jewelry to earn cash under the table. One of them even posed as their mother to gain employment. Now Raechel and Stephanie Schultz want steady, legitimate work, yet the federal government has refused to issue numbers to the women, saying they need more proof the pair were born in the U.S. The predicament prompted the women, who have lived for years on societys fringes, to sue. Im proud to be American, but they dont want me, 23-year-old Stephanie Schultz told The Associated Press in an interview at their lawyers office in southeastern Kentucky. The earliest years for the Schultz sisters were nomadic. The family traveled through 42 states, never staying too long in one place. Their father found occasional work in construction or at restaurants and the children picked up cans to make a few bucks. They didnt have no life plan, 29-year-old Raechel Schultz said of her parents, now in their 50s. It was just all like free hippie style, do what you can to get by. Gypsies. Raechel was born at a home in Madison County, Ky., near where the family lives now; Stephanie was delivered in the back of a Dodge van in southern Alabama. The births were recorded in a family Bible but were otherwise undocumented. Their mercurial parents settled into a hardscrabble existence about 14 years ago along the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, where the family car broke down. The girls were home schooled by their collegeeducated parents. The sisters still live with their parents in a weatherworn mobile home in the tiny enclave of Lily. It wasnt until five years ago that they tried to register with the Social Security system. They waited until Stephanie turned 18 because their parents feared truancy charges, Raechel said. The first couple years of our life, Dad didnt get our Social Security numbers, and he said once you dont do that right off the bat, they wont let you do it, Raechel said. So they just went on with it. This isnt the first time the sisters have gone to court over personal documents. In 2009, the women sued to get birth certificates, took a DNA test to prove they were born to their parents and a judges order won them the records. The Court has no reason to not believe the testimony and finds no reason to suggest the plaintiffs are seeking this relief for an illegal or immoral purpose, Circuit Judge John Knox Mills wrote in his 2010 order. Despite their lack of Social Security numbers, the sisters have found ways to supplement their familys meager income. Stephanie makes jewelry and paints old furniture to sell at a flea market. Raechel held down work at a couple of area restaurants by posing as her mother. She was at one eatery for seven years, rising to associate manager, but eventually quit out of fear her supervisors would discover her secret. According to their lawsuit, the Social Security Administration indicated it denied the womens request for numbers because they have not given us documents we need to show U.S. citizenship. The agency has declined to comment. Two Ky. sisters suing for SSNs Associated Press Stephanie, left, and Raechel Schultz sit outside their home Aug. 12, in London, Ky. The women have been unable to acquire Social Security numbers from the government and have filed a lawsuit to make it happen.


C HARLES J. HANLEY AP Special CorrespondentON JAKOBSHAVN GLACIER, Greenland The pilot eased his five-ton helicopter toward the glaciers rumpled surface, aiming for the lightest of setdowns atop one of the fastest-flowing ice streams on Earth. David Hollands voice suddenly broke in on the intercom. Carl doesnt like this! the scientist shouted. Carl says its snow bridges! drifts that can hide a deep crevasse. The chopper pulled up sharply and veered off over the chaotic icescape of white knobs and pinnacles and bluish glints of meltwater, on to another, safer landing spot where Carl Gladish, Hollands lanky, ponytailed assistant, stepped cautiously off the skid and onto the ice, under the thudding rotor blades, to swiftly carry out his assigned task. It was one of eight 2minute touchdowns on which the New York University research team positioned instruments to measure the movement and internal cracking of Jakobshavn Glacier, a risky operation meant to shed light on one more tiny piece of the giant puzzle called Greenland. Other scientists elsewhere were working on their own pieces, on demanding and often dangerous missions, sometimes in subfreezing temperatures and high winds, sleeping in tents on the ice, isolated for weeks at a time, linked tenuously by satellite phone. On this same July day, Alun Hubbard was on a solitary trek to the north coasts spectacular, remote Petermann Glacier. Liz Morris was in the first hours of a monthlong research traverse along the hump of Greenlands vast, 2mile-thick ice sheet. Asa Rennermalm and her colleagues, at the ices western fringe, were in their fourth summer of meticulous, tedious sampling of the meltwater flow from the interior. Scattered across the worlds largest island, as big as Alaska and California combined and 80 percent covered by ice, small bands of specialists tended to GPS sites and automatic weather stations, drilled down into the islands frozen cap, and analyzed the air and clouds overhead, working long hours under the midnight sun. All this is to help begin answering a crucial question: How much of Greenlands ice will melt, and how quickly, in a world growing warmer and warming fastest in the Arctic? If all the ice eventually slipped into the ocean, it would be enough to raise global sea levels by 23 feet. Even a fraction of that would inundate Bangladesh and south Florida, drown small islands, threaten cities as widely dispersed as Shanghai and New York. But as temperatures rise from greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, the answer isnt coming easily. The challenge scientific, logistical appears greater than the resources devoted to it. This Greenland puzzle, and uncertainty over Antarcticas ice, led the U.N.-sponsored Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to essentially disregard the impact on oceans of an accelerating polar melt. In its 2007 global warming report, the IPCC projected a sea-level rise of only 7 to 23 inches this century, mostly from water expanding when warmed. But researchers have since determined that Greenland lost ice in the 2004-09 period four times faster than in 1995-2000. This May, the eight-nation Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program forecast a much higher global sea-level rise of 35 to 63 inches by 2100. To those best informed, like Cambridge Universitys Morris, a polar research veteran, melt is inevitable in a place where temperatures over the ice sheet have risen 4 degrees F in just 20 years. Theres no way that you put greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and it wont warm and the ice wont melt, she said before setting out on her snowmobile expedition. The uncertainty is when. The when hinges on a web of variables in what Morris called Greenlands massively complex ice system. When and where, for example, are warmer southern waters reaching Greenlands fjords, spreading under their glaciers? How effectively is meltwater percolating from the ice sheets inland surface to its base, lubricating movement toward the sea? How much does snowfall water drawn from the oceans offset the melted ice? Researchers long focused on southern outlet glaciers like the west coasts Jakobshavn, an awesome iceberg producer 4 miles wide, believed to be the Northern Hemispheres biggest single contributor to ocean rise. The ice where doctoral candidate Gladish did his quick work is streaming toward the sea at a rate of 100 feet a day, twice as fast as in the 1990s. The big melt is now moving northwest. Last year, U.S. and Danish scientists reported that crustal uplift, the rising of land as the weight of ice melts away, was detected far up the coast of Greenland. There are big red zones, big thinning rates going on in the far northwest, and thats bizarre because its meant to be very cold up there, said Hubbard, of Wales Aberystwyth University. The ruggedly built British glaciologist spoke with a reporter at Kangerlussuaq, a southern research hub, hours before helicoptering off on a one-man mission to collect GPS and other data from Petermann Glacier, just 600 miles from the North Pole. A year ago, a 110-squaremile ice piece broke off giant Petermann and into the sea a chunk of ice three times the size of Manhattan island. But Hubbard, like others, said intensive research is now most needed deeper in the interior, to learn how the main body of ice is reacting to longer, warmer summers, and particularly whether meltwater pouring down to its base might cause runaway instability in the ice sheet. He said the melt has moved inland up Greenlands icy dome to 5,000 feet elevation, some 75 miles in from the ice caps edge. This summer a U.S.-Swiss team was drilling boreholes into the ice sheet northeast of Jakobshavn Glacier to better understand how ice movement detected by GPS stations relates to the plumbing, the under-ice meltwater system the boreholes find below. Far up the slope, at the 10,500-foot-high frigid heart of the ice sheet, the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) maintains its remote Summit Station research site, serviced by big New York Air National Guard LC130 transport planes equipped with ski landing gear for the ice runway. In small labs bristling with rooftop sensors, American researchers at Summit upgraded their instruments this summer to better study cloud formation and thickness, precipitation, the reflectivity of the snow and ice, and the presence of black carbon falling soot that would dim that reflectivity and absorb warming sunlight. Snowfall is key, but we know so little detail about Greenland, said Summit visitor Erica Key, an Arctic program manager for the NSF, a major funder of Greenland research. Most models computer climate simulations block out Greenland as a black box, she said. It was in Summits thin air that 64-year-old Morris, her 5-foot-1 frame bundled in orange cold-weather gear, set out with assistant John Sweeny on a one-month, twosnowmobile mission to supply her piece of the puzzle: measuring the snow density along a 250-mile route, to give the new European Cryosat 2 satellite some ground truth data to compare and calibrate with its own remote readings of ice thickness. Those readings are badly needed. The European Unions first ice-surveying satellite failed on launch in 2005, and NASAs ICESAT orbiter stopped working in 2009, not to be replaced until at least 2015. Any hard-won data emerging on the ice sheets dynamics would help refine computer models for a better fix on how a warmer Greenland will produce higher seas. But modelers are short not only on satellite readings, but also on ground observations from a too-thin corps of scientists. Below its gravelly fringe, near Kangerlussuaq, Rennermalms team was measuring the volume of meltwater gushing down stream beds from the ice sheet at up to 7.5 feet per second. But this was only one spot on a huge white map. I want to understand how much water is coming from the ice sheet, said the Danish researcher, a leader of the Rutgers-UCLA project. But there are very few measurements like this in Greenland. This is a difficult place to do science, a logistical challenge. Back up at Summit, two young Dartmouth College engineering graduates put one potential answer on display, testing the tiny, tractorlike Yeti autonomous robot over the ice. Like humans, Yeti could deploy groundpenetrating radar, meteorological gear and other research tools, say its designers, who envision hundreds crisscrossing Greenland offering up-tothe-minute data. Someday. For now, NYUs Holland has opted for ringed seals, two sea mammals he fitted with instruments for recording temperature and depth in a southeastern fjord of interest researchers whose findings were transmitted by satellite back to his NYU lab. But two seals against 27,000 miles of Greenland coastline still come up short. Solving the problem, said the veteran glaciologist, means accurately forecasting sea-level rise for particular regions over particular time periods. And we dont have that capability yet. He sees gaping holes: a need for new technology to comprehensively measure ocean temperatures; a need for an icebreaker dedicated to research in colder seasons. We are making a really noble effort, Holland said. But if you ask me whether we are making adequate progress at an adequate pace, Id say no. The authoritative Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program, in its May report, seemed to agree. Greenlands ice sheet is expected to melt faster and faster, but the impact remains highly uncertain, it said, and only more robust observational networks can change that. The Fate of Greenland, a new book co-authored by glaciologist Richard Alley and other leading U.S. scientists, offers stunning photos of an extraordinary white world, and dark words of warning. Our lack of fundamental understanding of ice-sheet behavior leaves open the possibility that we could be greatly underestimating the rate of response to warming, with potentially major implications, they write.

Page A8 MONDAY, AUGUST 15, 2011 Vote for responsibilityThe debt ceiling has been raised. Everyone can breathe a sigh of relief: Social Security checks will go out this month. I thought Congress would go after the deficit during the budget approval process; instead it waited until the money was spent. I guess I was nave enough to think both houses of Congress had to approve our federal budget. It appears competing estimates (not budgets) are submitted and promptly ignored or picked to pieces. The pundits on TV are now trying to decide who won this fiasco. When you see a drop of 800 points in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, someone lost $210 billion. Do you think taxpayers will go out and spend money now? They have lost all the equity they thought they had in their homes, now another chunk of their IRA or 401(k) is gone and finally, they are afraid their jobs will be lost next. With food and fuel cost increases, they have no disposable income left. The interest on the total national debt is about $415 billion, thanks to a very low interest rate (average of debt is about 3 percent). If the credit rating of the United States is reduced, we could reasonably expect to see the rate rise to 6 percent, which would require $940 billion in interest or 42 percent of U.S. government revenue. If our credit rating pushes the interest rate to 13.4 percent, the interest on the debt will equal the total U.S. revenue, $2.22 trillion. If we allow it to go that far, the tax increases and spending cuts will be lethal. What can be done? Maybe we could declare Grover Norquist public enemy No. 1. We didnt have this problem during World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the first 45 years of Social Security or the first 15 years of Medicare. It took root during the Reagan administration when Congress reduced the tax rates (from a max. of 70 percent to 28 percent) and increased spending, which has continued by both parties until today. We must elect a fiscally responsible Congress and president. R.M. Sprott Crystal River Stock market speaks The stock market gave its view of Standard & Poors downgrading the nations debt rating. In spite of what politicians have told us, raising the debt ceiling is not the answer. The market spoke clearly. We must reduce deficit spending. The drop clearly shows what the rating agency thinks of Washingtons agreement to raise the debt limit. What a joke! Neither party can bear the thought of really cutting government spending. A balanced-budget amendment with teeth is the only way to keep these pigs from the trough. When the cost of the interest on our debt and giveaway programs to those who do not want to work or are not legally in this country reaches the point we can no longer pay Social Security or Medicare, maybe those who have been listening to the distortions and outright lies will finally hear what the tea party has been saying. It sees the need to really cut national spending and bring this country back to the Constitution. Yes, the same Constitution which made the United States the greatest country this planet has ever or will ever see. The progressive Democrats are like the boy with the Golden Goose. They will kill the goose due to their blind attempt to create the paradise they are so sure will come with borrowing and spending enough money. Go ahead and slap all the politicians on the back for the great job they are doing. When it all collapses, I am confident those in Washington will not miss a paycheck or any of their special privileges. I sincerely hope America wakes up to what Washington is doing before it is too late for our children and grandchildren. The debt limit agreement, along with this administrations failed economic policies, will result in a lot more than a change in our debt rating. Gary T. Lawrence Inverness C heer up. Not everything went down over the last two weeks. Granted, most things did. The stock market tanked, governments approval numbers fell, Americas credit rating slipped as if on a cosmic banana peel. All of which is predictable any time the worlds largest economy is driven to the rim of ruin while leaders bicker like kids in the back seat of the family car on a road trip across Texas. In August. With a busted air conditioner. But in the midst of that bleak litany of decline, there was a bright spot. Indeed, one leading indicator registered a sharp uptick. For the first time, it seems, more than half the American electorate now holds a negative view of the tea party movement. If youre wondering what that is a leading indicator of, the answer is simple: common sense. The noteworthy thing about the CNN/ORC poll, which was conducted Aug. 5 to 7, is not simply that it found 51 percent of Americans now regard the tea party unfavorably, up from 26 percent when they first started asking this question in January 2010. No, whats telling is where the dislike is coming from. You see, the spike does not reflect a change of mind from the tea party faithful. Approval numbers have remained relatively stable over the 19month history of the survey, starting out at 33 percent, peaking to 38 percent twice, falling back to 31 percent this month. Once one drinks the tea, apparently, the tea stays drunk. No, the fluctuation has come from those who previously knew nothing about the party. Twenty-four percent of Americans said in January of last year they had never heard of it. Only 5 percent say that now. As that number has fallen, tea party disfavor has risen. To put that more simply: The more Americans learn about this movement, the more they dislike it. That is good news for those who had taken to muttering that famous old axiom about the birthrate of suckers, a hopeful sign for those who had resigned themselves to the fact that they lived in a nation where she who yells the most simplistic thing in the loudest voice wins the debate. It is a godsend for those who were ready to write an epitaph for American intelligence. Not that one can afford to be sanguine about the fact that only one American in three supports the tea party. Still, there is something reassuring in the realization that we have not completely lost our national mind. Yet. As the world grows larger and more fiendishly complex there is, make no mistake, something seductive about loud voices and simplistic answers. Especially when they demand nothing more of you than your capacity to feel frightened, angry and put upon. Government is the enemy! Taxes are unpatriotic! Re-education camps are being built! Death panels are raiding senior centers! Obama wants to destroy the economy! It is distressing to see that such obvious, asinine fear-mongering holds sway with a large number of Americans, amazing to know those fear mongers all but control a major political party, disheartening to realize they would rather wreck the economy than ding their ideological purity. At the same time, it is encouraging to see evidence that some of us most of us yet retain the common sense for which Americans are renowned. Maybe there is hope for us after all.Leonard Pitts is a columnist for the Miami Herald, 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL, 33132.

But for Crystal River City Manager Andy Houston, its sometimes difficult to remember that the jolly good fellow they were singing about is him! The soft-spoken, mild-mannered man who is often credited with bringing civility back to Crystal River government was fully warned of the volatile arena he entered in 2006, one that made revolving door a common phrase in the community when referring to this citys management. But with little fanfare and a tremendous amount of tolerance and staying power, the atmosphere changed. The difference was not just in what was being done but rather how it was being done. Just as Houstons professional demeanor in City Hall became a catalyst for common sense and positive resolution, his genuine and enthusiastic visibility in the community has brought him closer to the city and the people he works for. Council members, concerned citizens and business leaders still occasionally have to be reminded to retract their claws; it doesnt take a whole lot of effort to transform the Crystal River City Council chambers into its former cantankerous combat zone. But the strong, consistent leadership of Houston has proven he can weather the battles that, unfortunately, come with the territory. And if the atta boys from the bleachers get muffled when the dialogue gets heated, Houston needs to be reminded that the day-today frustrations of small-town politics must always be flanked with the growing satisfaction that his presence continues to make a difference. Whether its flags, garbage, kayak launches, sewer projects, abandoned boats, river walks, annexation, mining ordinances, landscaping or manatees, the bumps will never go away, not in his line of work. But when you do it as well as Andy Houston, those bumps can be navigated with a minimum of casualties and a great deal of success.

Hunt, one of the event coordinators. Its modeled after something thats been done successfully in Melbourne for 24 years. Hunt added upwards of 80,000 people attend the Mel bourne event. He said locally, this event could see as many as 20,000 visitors to Citrus County. The memorials and other military displays serve as educational opportunities. Besides serving as a reunion site for military vets of all branches, Hunt said theres a lot of healing that takes place. I served as a counselor for 22 years in Melbourne, and I find that some veterans have come to Melbourne year after year, but they will NOT go to the memorial in Washington, D.C., he said. However, they will come to a reunion and find another veteran that they recognize. ... Its a time to come together for healing. Also, many veterans dont speak to their families about these things. But families learn from other veterans there. The Vietnam memorial costs $10,000 to bring to Citrus County. Hunt said that and other costs are being covered by private donations and grants. The weeklong event includes bands, the memorials and other displays and food and merchandise vendors. Currently, the organizers are looking for more vendors and also for motorcycle riders to serve as escorts for the Vietnam memorial on Sunday, Oct. 2 from the Citrus County fairgrounds to the reunion site.

The other high-profile competitors and their ballroom-dancing-expert partners were Connie Lobel of Capital City Bank and Butch Phillips; and Dr. Gus Fonseca and the Chronicles April Zay. The competition was interspersed with humor as emcee Josh Wooten, Chamber of Commerce president/CEO, and the judges, Supervisor of Elections Susan Gill and former commissioner Jim Fowler, had amusing observations about each other, the dancers and some of the more enthusiastic people in the crowd. Adding legitimacy to the judging, however, was Miriam Ellis, an Orlando resident who is one of only six Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing examiners in the country. Following a dinner catered by Codys Original Roadhouse, all dancers hit the floor, dressed in glitzy western wear and line dancing to Alan Jacksons Good Times. After that, the individual dance themes ranged from tango to disco. Selections included: Bonomo/Bonomo Hot Honey Rag. Humphrey/Royal Shake Your Groove Thing. Phillips/Lobel Dance With Me.

At the time, ice had gotten to be expensive at $3.99 for 7 pounds of ice. The cost of hauling the ice plus storing the ice once it got to a store caused the rise in prices. However, with the machines, Rusaw said it cuts out the middle man since the ice is made and stored right there on the premises just like the ones people have in their freezers. Therefore, people instead pay $2 for 20 pounds of ice. Every other day, Rusaw said, either he or one of his partners go to check on the machine to make sure it is working properly and is clean. He said he comes across a lot of boaters and construction workers who use the machine to fill up their coolers and on the weekends, he has seen the parking lot full. James Molloy, who was using an ice vending machine Saturday morning on U.S. 19 in Crystal River, said he uses the machine every weekend when he goes out on his boat, stating its cheaper than buying ice at a grocery store. While he agrees the ice business can be profitable, there are factors such as the general economy and competition that can make things a bit harder but he remains fascinated by the machine. It is a lot more complicated than it looks. It has three-phase electricity and a drainage system. Its connected to the city sewer and water. You have to be licensed for handling food and permitted with the county a state, he said. It is a lot of hassle to get things set up, but Rusaw said it was worth it in the end, even though he admits he probably wont set up another one. John Seifert, executive director of the Citrus County Economic Development Council, said he has noticed the boom in ice vending machines around the county. It started three years ago, catering to fishermen, construction and tourists, he said. It has grown. And while Seifert calls the machines a clean, healthy concept that doesnt require a lot of labor, he admits the EDC likes to concentrate on businesses that will hire people and help grow the economy.

The governor of Parwan, a relatively peaceful eastern province just 30 miles north of Kabul, survived. He said he picked up an assault rifle and shot at least one of the attackers dead from the waiting room of his office. Two other insurgents detonated their vests, causing most of the deaths and burning part of the governors offices. Several cars were wrecked by shrapnel and bullets. Broken glass and body parts littered a charred lawn. The bold daylight assault in Charikar follows a similar attack by suicide bombers at a major Kabul hotel in June, and the downing of a U.S. helicopter full of U.S. special operations troops only 35 miles away from Kabul. The attacks in and close to the capital raise more questions about Afghanistans ability to defend itself as the U.S.-led coalition hands more of the country over to its struggling forces. Police said Sundays assault began outside the front gate, where a car bomber set off an explosion that smashed through a wall of the compound, allowing five other insurgents toting assault rifles and rocket-propelled grenade launchers to enter. The attack interrupted a provincial security meeting attended by Parwan Gov. Abdul Basir Salangi, his police chief, intelligence director, a local army commander and at least two NATO advisers. All the attackers wore suicide vests, and at least three of them were dressed as police officers, police said. Two attackers made it across a courtyard and detonated their vests inside the governors headquarters building, but three others were killed before they could enter, police said. Sixteen of the dead were civilian Afghan government employees and six were policemen, according to the Afghan Interior Ministry. At least 37 other people were injured. Meanwhile, NATO announced that three service members were killed on Sunday in two separate improvised bomb attacks. The international coalition did not release any further details about the deaths.

A tropical storm warning was in effect for Bermuda, though the National Hurricane Center in Miami said Gerts center was still about 255 miles south-southeast from the isolated island chain. Gert, the seventh tropical storm of this years Atlantic hurricane season, was moving north-northwest at 8 mph and had maximum sustained winds of 44 mph. The storm, which formed Sunday afternoon, could get stronger as it makes its way toward Bermuda. Were gearing up for a windy night and perhaps some showers, but we should fare pretty well up here, said Jeff Torgerson, a meteorologist with the Bermuda Weather Service. Most residents of Bermuda, where basic storm preparations are a familiar routine, were also taking it in stride. Right now its a baby. Were paying attention to it, but people here dont get worked up about storms this size, said Francis Mahoney of Bermuda Yacht Services, a provider of emergency marine services. Bermuda requires newly built houses to withstand sustained winds of 110 mph. It also has a sturdy infrastructure with many of its power and phone lines underground. Below Gert, a trough of low pressure located some 425 miles north-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands is generating some showers and thunderstorms. U.S. forecasters said Sunday afternoon that this system has about a 30 percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next two days. It was moving west-northwest at about 15 mph, according to the Hurricane Center. The sixth named storm of the Atlantic season Tropical Storm Franklin formed early Saturday, but soon lost its tropical characteristics, becoming posttropical cyclone Franklin as it raced over the North Atlantic. By early Sunday, it was no longer a named storm. Tropics roar to life over weekend Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS The summer evening at the Indiana State Fair turned strangely cold. The wind blew hard, then harder still, tearing the fabric from the roof of the wobbling grandstand stage. The crowd, waiting under a thunderous sky for the country duo Sugarland to perform Saturday, had just been told over the loudspeakers that severe weather was possible. They were told where to seek shelter if an evacuation was necessary, but none was ordered. The show, it seemed, was to go on. None of the phone calls workers had made to the National Weather Service prepared them for the 60 to 70 mph gust that blew a cloud of dirt, dust and rain down the fairgrounds main thoroughfare. The massive rigging and lighting system covering the stage tilted forward, then plummeted onto the front of the crowd in a sickening thump. Five people were killed, four at the scene, where dozens ran forward to help the injured while others ran for shelter. Dozens of people including several children remained hospitalized Sunday, some with life-threatening injuries. Women were crying. Children were crying. Men were crying, fairgoer Mike Zent said. The fair canceled all activities Sunday as officials began the long process of determining what happened and fielded difficult questions about whether the tragedy could have been prevented. The stage toppled at 8:49 p.m. A timeline released by Indiana State Police shows that fair staff contacted the weather service four times between 5:30 and 8 p.m. At 8 p.m., the weather service said a storm with hail and 40 mph winds was expected to hit the fairgrounds at 9:15 p.m. Meteorologist John Hendrickson said its not unusual for strong winds to precede a thunderstorm, and that Saturdays gust might have been channeled through the stage area by buildings on either side of the dirt track where the stage fell, at the bottom of the grandstand.

Bermuda hunkers down as Gert nears Associated PressThe 12-year-old Boy Scout was scared but he still knew what to do when he got lost during a Utah wilderness outing: He built a shelter made of tree branches and wood to get through a cold night and he also covered himself in dirt to stay warm. Jared Ropelatos lean-to a crude structure the Boy Scout manual advises Scouts to build if they become lost kept him warm enough so he could sleep after the overnight low in Ashley National Forest dipped to 31 degrees in the area, said Daggett County sheriffs spokeswoman Karen Peterson. The boy was wearing only jeans and a shirt, and had no food or water when he went missing around noon Friday. He had gotten lost while making his way by himself back to camp from a nearby lake, walking a total of eight or nine miles before searchers on ATVs found him Saturday morning some four miles from where he started, Peterson said. He did everything right last night, his mother, Dawn, said. We said he was smart, and hes smart. Peterson also praised the boy, saying building the lean-to was good thinking and it saved him from the elements. He told the Deseret News of Salt Lake City he learned to build the structure last year at Scout camp. Were just so glad that this story has a happy ending, Peterson told The Associated Press. Jareds mother told the Deseret News that her sons biggest scare came when he encountered a bull moose. He got cold during the night, but not too cold. He fell in a river Saturday morning, but hes still dirty, she said. Jared resumed walking Saturday morning before he was found at 8:40 a.m. in good health, ending a search effort that included about 200 people.

Associated PressThe Southeastern Conference is staying just at it is for now. However, the game of major college conference realignment appears far from finished. University of Florida President Bernie Machen, the chairman of the leagues presidents and chancellors committee, said the group met Sunday and reaffirmed our satisfaction with the present 12 institutional alignment. Machen said no action was taken regarding Texas A&M or any other schools. He didnt, however, close the door on change. We recognize, however, that future conditions may make it advantageous to expand the number of institutions in the league, Machen said in a statement. We discussed criteria and process associated with expansion. The Aggies reportedly are looking to leave the Big 12. The Texas A&M System board of regents is to meet Monday, and among the items on the agenda is conference alignment. A&M President R. Bowen Loftin said in a statement Sunday there is a considerable amount of misinformation regarding the school and the SEC. Loftin said he did not participate in Sundays meeting with the SEC, but would be authorized by the regents to take all actions related to athletic conference alignment. The schools first preference destination appears to have been the SEC. Arkansas Chancellor Dave Gearhart said that much was made clear at the SEC meeting on Sunday. (Texas A&M) did approach the SEC, not the other way around, Gearhart said. Im not really sure of all the reasons for that. Im sure that theres a lot of speculation on behalf of a lot of people that what caused them to do that. The bottom line is they did approach the SEC. Gearhart said the Aggies were among a number of topics discussed at the SEC meeting in Atlanta. It was really an open discussion, not just about A&M but about the future of the conference and the future of other conferences, Gearhart said. We did talk about Texas A&M. Its a great university, a great place. But I think the decision was to make no decision at this particular time. Gearhart said the SEC presidents and chancellors are very comfortable with the 12-team alignment, financially and competitively. But he, too, said they wouldnt rule out expansion. If some other conference is going to make changes, it behooves us to take a look at that, Gearhart said. He added: I think everybody will sort of be watching what happens in Texas and what they do. Gearhart said he didnt come away from the meeting with any clearer idea of what form future conferences might take. He said talk of four super conferences was just that talk. As for how any future alignment would affect the SEC, or if the conference would look actively look to add schools, Gearhart pointed to the leagues history of success Tennis, NFL/ B2 Auto racing/ B2 MLB Baseball/ B3 Lottery, TV/B4 Scoreboard/B4 Sports briefs/ B4 Entertainment/ B5 Classifieds/ B8 Wet and wild Indy finish/ B2 S PORTS Section B MONDAY, AUGUST 15, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressJOHNS CREEK, Ga. In a major with names hard to remember, Keegan Bradley delivered a comeback difficult to forget. Five shots behind with three holes to play in the PGA Championship, Bradley made back-toback birdies to begin his rally. Equally stunning was the collapse from Jason Dufner, who was flawless on the home stretch until Sunday, when he made three straight bogeys with the Wanamaker Trophy on the line. Bradley won a three-hole playoff, making him only the third player in at least 100 years to win a major in his first try. He also became the first player to win a major with a long putter a belly putter and it proved to be the most important club in his bag. Bradley rattled in a 35-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole in regulation to keep alive his chances, then showed the perfect touch with a two-putt across the 18th green for a par to close out a 2under 68. Dufner, now winless in 148 starts on the PGA Tour, stooped over on the 18th fairway in the playoff before hitting his final shot, knowing that he had thrown away his best chance at finally winning in a major, no less. And so ended the final major of the year a guy in a red shirt pumping his fists along the back nine of Atlanta Athletic Club, providing excitement that the PGA Championship had been missing until the final hour. Until then, this major had been remembered for Tiger Woods missing the cut by six shots and looking lost as ever, and for U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy hitting a tree root in the opening round and playing the rest of the week with his right wrist heavily taped. Bradley, best known until now as the nephew of LPGA great Pat Bradley, was No. 108 in the world after having won the Byron Nelson Championship earlier this year in a sudden-death playoff, again after the leaders had faded on the closing holes. This makes seven straight majors won by players who had never before captured a Grand Slam event, the longest streak in history. Hes got a good pedigree with Pat Bradley in the family, Dufner said. Im sure hes picked up a few things from her about winning, attitude and golf in general. Hes probably got a pretty strong future out here. Bradley now moves to No. 29 in the world, and ends the longest American drought in the majors at six tournaments. Phil Mickelson had been the last American at the 2010 Masters, and perhaps thats only fitting. Mickelson has been playing money games during practice rounds at the big tournaments with Bradley, wanting him to be prepared to play for something more prestigious than cash. The kid must have taken the lessons to heart. He never gave up when he had every reason to do just that. Bradley was two shots behind when he arrived at the pivotal stretch of the course. From left of the 15th green, he hit an aggressive chip that came out too hot and rolled into the water, leading to a triple bogey. That put him five shots behind with three to play. Dufner watched it all unfold from high on the hill as he waited on the 15th tee, his lead suddenly up to four shots over Anders Hansen, who was in the process of making bogey. Dufner, so unflappable all day, had played the ferocious four-hole closing stretch in a combined 3 under for the first three days without every making bogey. This was different. This was Sunday. Dufner, for the first time showing even a trace of emotion, winced slightly when he saw the flight of his tee shot. It found the pond to the right of the green, yet he poured in a 12-foot putt to at least escape with bogey. His lead was still four shots, and when he split the middle of the 16th fairway, he seemed to be on his way. Then came an unlikely chain of Associated Press Keegan Bradley holds up the Wanamaker Trophy on the 18th green after winning a three-hole playoff against Jason Dufner at the PGA Championship golf tournament on Sunday at the Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek, Ga. Bradley wins PGA in playoff after rousing comebackSEC decides it will stick with its 12 schools for now Bucs Morris pleased so far Associated PressTAMPA Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris found very little wrong in his teams preseason-opening win over the Kansas City Chiefs. The Bucs were back on the practice field for a twohour workout on Sunday, two days after a 25-0 victory. I liked the effort ... I liked the fact we played really hard, Morris said. We played fast. The guys did play consistent throughout the game. That was awesome. Josh Freeman put points on the board in three of the four series he played, finishing 9 of 13 for 73 yards. He also scored a rushing touchdown. Still, Morris sees the quarterback getting better. As good as he was for the first time, he was still a little rusty for Josh, Morris said. The Tampa Bay offense piled up 353 yards, and the Buccaneers young and rapidly improving defense held the explosive Kansas City offense to just 137 86 on the ground and 51 through the air. For the most part, man, really happy, really pleased with what we did and how we played, Morris said. It was just a pleasing day for the first time out of the box after a long layoff. It looked nice. Among the few negatives Morris found was the offensive play at times inside the Chiefs 20-yard line when the team settled for field goals. Were in the red zone there a couple times, youd like to score a touchdown, he said. Morris expects defensive linemen Gerald McCoy (shoulder) and Brian Price (pelvic) to play Thursday night against New England. Cornerback Aqib Talib (leg) might sit out, and safety Ahmad Black is week to week with a sprained right ankle.

Rory McIlroy headed for a tennis vacation. The U.S. Open winner finished up his PGA Championship on Sunday with a second straight 74, sending him to 11-over par and tied for 64thHe said his injured right wrist felt better and he was simply glad for a few days off. Though McIlroys not heading home to Northern Ireland, hes off to Cincinnati. I hear its nice up there this time of year, he said with a grin. Cincinnati is also site of a WTA tournament featuring McIlroys friend, world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki. The two have been the subject of gossip since they were photographed together a month ago. McIlroy, though, quickly turned the conversation back to his PGA performance. It was certainly a struggle, he said, since injuring his right wrist on an ill-considered shot, the ball up against a tree root. I basically played 70 holes of this tournament not at 100 percent, so its always going to be tough, he said. The wrist has felt better each day. He said the swelling has gone done although his muscle remains sore. Just a little bit of rest should be it, McIlroy said. McIlroy, 22, was proud of his drama-filled major season the Masters finalround collapse followed by the U.S. Open runaway at Congressional. He tied for 25tt at the British Open. Led by four going into the Masters, led by eight going into the U.S. Open, so theres been huge positives to take out of the majors this year, he said. Its nice to get one under my belt early and focus on getting more. Seminoles strong at critical running back position Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Atlantic Coast Conference preseason favorite Florida State heads into its 2011 season loaded at tailback with three talented veterans joining a pair of highly touted freshmen in the battle for playing time. Running backs coach Eddie Gran said during Florida States annual media day festivities Sunday that its a good feeling to have abundant depth at a position where players often miss a game or more with injuries. I have never, never had it when just one guy went the whole season, Gran said, noting the exception of Rudi Johnson at Auburn a decade ago. Its one of the hardest pounding positions that you have where they get beat up, said Gran, who also has the special teams responsibility for the Seminoles. Junior Chris Thompson and seniors Jermaine Thomas and Ty Jones combined to rush for 1,862 yards and 17 touchdowns last season with the 5-8, 185-pound Thompson finishing the year as the starter. Theyve totaled 3,646 rushing yards and 37 touchdowns in their Seminole careers. Freshmen James Wilder Jr. and Devonta Freeman between them ran for 48 touchdowns and nearly 4,000 yards as high school seniors. As a position coach you want competition, he said. The younger guys are pushing the older ones. Thompson, the MVP of the Chick-Fil-A Bowl, recorded three touchdown runs of 70 or more yards last season, including a 90-yard scoring dash at Miami. I have been blessed to coach some very good running backs and never have I had long runs like that, that many, Gran said. Hes been great for us. A year ago, it was Thomas who began the year as the starter, but a late-season knee injury and Thompsons emergence changed the depth chart. Chris Thompson won that position last year by paying attention to the details, Gran said Sunday. Thompson, however, wasnt sure at the beginning of the 2010 season if he could excel at the major college level after averaging fewer than two carries a game as a freshman. At first I had a little doubt, but at the same time, I know that if Im surrounded by a good group of guys theyre going to make me better, said Thompson, a soft spoken, yes-sir, no-sir young man. Thompson, whose size reminds many of former Florida State great Warrick Dunn, said hes looking for bigger things this season. I know that I can be better than what I was last year, Thompson said.


B2 M ONDAY, A UGUST 15, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S PORTS Giants DE Umenyiora ends stalemate, will practice Associated PressEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Osi Umenyiora is returning to work for the New York Giants without a new contract. In an email to the AP on Sunday evening, Umenyiora said he plans to practice on Monday at training camp, and that he will play this season under the terms of his current contract. Umenyiora said the Giants offered to put incentives in his contact, which will pay him $7.1 million over the next two seasons, but he rejected them. No deal has been reworked, Umenyiora told The AP What has been offered has been unacceptable and shows they dont really respect the fact I sacrifice my health for the franchise. I will play under my current deal because I love and respect my coaches, my teammates, the fans, and myself. Not for those incentives. The nine-year NFL veteran hasnt practiced since reporting to training camp on July 30, a day late. He failed to report on time because he alleged that general manager Jerry Reese told him after last season that the team would rework his contract. Reese has refused to discuss what was said between them. The 29-year-old Umenyiora shared the team lead with 11.5 sacks last season and he had a league-high 10 forced fumbles. The Giants told Umenyiora not to practice after he reported to training camp, but a couple of days later the team said he wasnt working out because of a sore left knee. Umenyiora gave indications on Wednesday that he might practice soon when he did some work with trainers simulating snaps. He went to Atlanta on Thursday and got a second opinion on his knee. Giants coach Tom Coughlin said on Sunday that team doctors cleared Umenyiora for practice, and hours later Umenyiora told The AP that he would take the field on Monday. I will play under my old deal, Umenyiora said. Umenyioras decision came one day after secondyear defensive end pro Jason Pierre-Paul recorded two sacks and played an excellent game in the Giants 20-10 loss to Carolina in the preseason opener. Burress talks frankly to HBO Associated PressNEW YORK Plaxico Burress was walking up the stairs in a Manhattan nightclub three years ago when his life changed with a single gunshot. The wide receiver, now with the New York Jets, recounts that night in November 2008 when he accidentally shot himself and the 20 months he served in prison as a result in an interview for HBOs Real Sports that airs Tuesday. Its the first time he has fully detailed the events of the past few years. It was dark, recalled Burress, who was then with the Giants. And I kind of, you know, missed a step. Thats when I felt my gun start to slide. I went to grab it to stop it from falling. Pow! He didnt realize he had shot himself in the right thigh until he looked down. I had some Chuck Taylors on and they were, the white was all red, Burress said, showing a small scar on his leg. I said, Oh, Im in trouble. But he didnt realize how much. His wife, Tiffany, is an attorney who told her husband that he was going to end up serving jail time because he was going to be made an example of. Burress vehemently disagreed with her because I own the gun, its mine, I bought it. How much trouble can I really be in? The interview includes Burress attorney, Benjamin Brafman, and his new coach, Rex Ryan. Burress, who turned 34 on Friday, signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Jets two weeks ago the start of an NFL comeback that seemed unlikely a few years ago. Brafman said a bail agreement was worked out for Burress to be released on his own recognizance or $10,000 bail. But New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg called for Burress to be prosecuted to the fullest extent in a press conference. Twenty minutes later, Brafman said, the prosecutor asked for $250,000 bail. Brafman told Burress there was a problem and relayed Bloombergs comments. You know what I said after that? Burress said. I said, Whos Mayor Bloomberg? Come on, says interviewer Bryant Gumbel. Dead serious, Burress says. The wide receiver later asked the grand jury for compassion, but was indicted because, My name is Plaxico Burress and my career and my life hasnt always been squeaky clean. Burress was sent to Oneida Correctional Facility in upstate New York, where he lost count of how many times he cried while in prison. He worked various jobs such as mopping stairwells and serving meals while he was there. To be living in that cell for 16, 17 hours a day, you go from being able to do just about anything that you want to do, Burress said, to basically putting you in a cage, putting you in a box. Associated PressTORONTO Eight weeks into her comeback, Serena Williams not only believes she can be as good as she once was. She can be better. The 29-year-old American star made a pretty good point by capturing the Rogers Cup in commanding fashion Sunday, dispatching 10th-seed Samantha Stosur of Australia 6-4, 6-2 for her first Canadian crown since 2001. The victory was just the latest step in a remarkable comeback from injury and illness that has seen her win two of the four tournaments shes played since being sidelined for 49 weeks. Being down the way Ive been down and coming back, it was cool. Eight months ago if there was only one tournament I wanted to win, it was Toronto, Williams said. For whatever reason, I really wanted to win this event. So seeing it come true is really cool. Just going through so much and being able to win is even more amazing. Williams, who has 38 titles to her name including 13 Grand Slams, was sidelined just days after her Wimbledon victory last summer, first with a foot injury sustained when she stepped on a piece of glass in a restaurant in Germany, and then with blood clots in her lungs. Williams was asked if she ever had any doubt during her long layoff about whether she would be able to return to tennis. Never. Never once. No, she answered. She said shes looked to Kim Clijsters for inspiration. The Belgian retired to have a baby, then returned two years later to win the U.S. Open in her third tournament back. Kim did something really amazing, Williams said. I just hope I can do half as good as she did. She won the Open two years in a row now. Im hoping to get close to there, that title. The former top-ranked Williams was unseeded in the Rogers Cup and is ranked just 80th in the world as she continues her comeback. Shes projected to rise to No. 31 in the next rankings, and will definitely be considered a favorite at the upcoming U.S. Open. I consider myself a favorite to just do what I can do best, if that means winning the U.S. Open, obviously I want to, she said. I went through a lot of things physically and mentally and emotionally, and going through so much, Im just taking it one day at a time and just going with it. Toronto rapper Drake was among fans in the almost-full Rexall Stadium, and Williams bristled in the post-match news conference when asked to respond to rumors about their relationship. Oh man, really? Williams said. So much speculation. Its unbelievable. Shocking, really. Its too much. Its really too much. Were really good friends. I guess you cant be too close of a friend nowadays. The player was otherwise in a joking mood, chuckling about her age and the fact 10 years had passed since she won her other Rogers Cup title. Serena, captures 2nd win in a row Associated PressMONTREAL Top-ranked Novak Djokovic won the Rogers Cup on Sunday for his ninth tournament victory of the year and record fifth in a season in an ATP Masters 1,000 event, beating Mardy Fish 6-2, 3-6, 6-4. The 24-year-old Serb, the Australian Open and Wimbledon champion, is 29-0 this year on hard courts and 53-1 overall. He also won the Rogers Cup in 2007. I am human I can definitely assure you of that, Djokovic said. I guess its just all about having a positive attitude on the court every day, waking up every day wanting to improve, wanting to win, being determined, being professional. Its that desire and motivation that keeps me going. Every match I play, I try to win, regardless which match is it or whoever is across the net. The sixth-seeded Fish was the only player to win a set a set against Djokovic this week. Fish has lost all seven career meetings with Djokovic, but gave the top seed a battle with his awkward mix of baseline and attacking play. I put myself in a lot of positions to have chances, Fish said. I just didnt execute on the big points. Theres a reason why (Djokovic) has won so many matches this year. Hes got to be leading the tour in break points saved, Im sure, among other things. Those are huge. Djokovic, who played night matches this week, looked uncomfortable from the outset and needed to save six break points to get through the opening set. He saved his eighth of the match before Fish finally broke him with a perfect forehand down the line to take a 3-2 lead in the second set. Djokovic looked lost as he was broken again to close out the set. But Djokovic was near-perfect on his service in the final set, although he needed four break points, one of which he challenged a call and lost, before finally putting away Fish. It was a close match, for sure, Djokovic said. A couple of points, one good return game in the third set, decided the winner. But its a final. I knew that he is not going to give me the match and the win. I knew that I have to fight for it. Up to the last moment, you didnt really know who is going to win. But I believed I could do it. I had composure when I needed to. I think that was decisive. Djokovic was in his first event since winning Wimbledon, while Fish has been the hottest player of the hard court season leading to the U.S. Open later this month. He has reached finals in three straight tournaments in the last month, winning in Atlanta. Associated Press Ryan Hunter-Reay leads the IndyCar 225 on his way to victory on Sunday in Loudon, N.H. Wet and Wild finish Hunter-Reay wins rain-shortened IndyCar race Associated PressLOUDON, N.H. Ryan HunterReay raced to his first IndyCar victory of the year on Sunday after a slippery, crash-marred finish that left drivers upset that it was restarted in rain with about 10 laps left. Moments after the race resumed on an overcast afternoon, Danica Patricks car slid sideways, starting a chain reaction that knocked out the cars of Will Power and Takuma Sato. Officials reverted to the race order that existed before the final restart, leaving Oriol Servia in second place and Scott Dixon in third in the 225mile race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, the first IndyCar competition at the track since 1998. Power, second in the series point standings, was irate as he left his car and flashed an obscene gesture that was caught on camera. But he cut Dario Franchittis lead from 63 points to 47 with five races left. Franchitti led for 115 of the 225 laps before being hit from behind by Sato, ending his race on the 119th. Hunter-Reay then took the lead and held it most of the way for his fifth win in 113 IndyCar races. He came in third in two of his three previous races and now has five consecutive top 10 finishes after managing just one in his other eight. The driver for Andretti Autosport wished his win was in a little bit different way, but well absolutely take it after the year weve had, he said. It was a strange day, but sometimes racing is strange. The start of the race was moved up by a half hour in hopes of avoiding rain predicted for late in the afternoon. The crashes began on the very first lap when Mike Conway spun sideways coming out of Turn 2 and hit Graham Rahal. Both ended up on the grass and were out just seconds into the race. Then, moments after the first restart, Helio Castroneves also spun coming out of Turn 2. He continued after repairs but never was a factor. A light rain began falling on about the 70th lap and the yellow flag came out six laps later for moisture on the track. After 33 laps under the caution flag, the race restarted with Franchitti in the lead followed by Sato and Servia. Then Franchitti was knocked out It was my fault, Sato said. I was too close to Dario and had debris in my eye. ... Im sorry about that. Soon after, another crash ended the day for Tony Kanaan and Tomas Scheckter. The last caution flag came out on the 206th lap because of more moisture on the track. At that point, the top three cars were driven by Hunter-Reay, Servia and Dixon. Then came the final, ill-fated restart that left many drivers upset with the decision by Brian Barnhart, IndyCars vice president of competition, to resume racing. It was no condition to race in. Shame on him, Power said. And Barnhart said he made the wrong call. It was a mistake on race controls position, he said. We ended up tearing up some race cars that we shouldnt have. He said he hadnt considered the possibility of penalizing Power for his gesture. NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen postponedWATKINS GLEN, N.Y. The Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International has been postponed until Monday. Steady rain that began just when the race was scheduled to start Sunday afternoon did not abate in time for track crews to dry the 2.45-mile racing surface. The race is now scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Monday, but rain also is in the forecast in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. Last weeks race at Pocono had a 1 hour, 40-minute rain delay, but NASCAR was able to complete the 500-mile event. The 2009 Watkins Glen Cup race won by Tony Stewart also was postponed a day after the track was hit by a string of thunderstorms.

Nick Markakis homered and drove in four runs, Jo-Jo Reyes allowed four hits over six innings to earn his first win with Baltimore, and the Orioles held off the Detroit Tigers 8-5 Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep. Markakis, Nolan Reimold and Adam Jones had three hits apiece for the Orioles, who got off to a quick start in their second win in eight games. Baltimore led 3-0 after two innings, added three runs in fifth and two in the sixth for an 8-1 cushion. Then came the ninth. Less than 24 hours after the Orioles blew a five-run advantage in a 6-5 loss, Baltimore closer Kevin Gregg nearly gave away an even larger lead. After three singles loaded the bases with no outs, Gregg walked Alex Avila and Ramon Santiago to force in two runs, and Austin Jackson followed with an RBI single to make it 8-4. Jim Johnson entered and struck out Andy Dirks, then gave up a run-scoring grounder to Magglio Ordonez before walking Miguel Cabrera intentionally to load the bases for pinch-hitter Brennan Boesch, who hit a slicing liner to left that Reimold nabbed on the run for the final out.

Giants 5, Marlins 2 MIAMI Dressing at his locker, Ryan Vogelsong showed a clubhouse visitor the big red welt on his upper left arm, a souvenir earned en route to his career-best 10th victory. Vogelsong gave up a first-inning homer and took a pitch in the biceps batting in the seventh Sunday, but that was the only significant damage inflicted on the right-hander, who helped the San Francisco Giants to a 5-2 victory over the slumping Florida Marlins. Vogelsong (10-2), a journeyman who blossomed this year into an All-Star, benefited from four homers by his teammates. He retired 17 in a row during one stretch to finally reach the double-digit victory milestone at age 34. Every win is significant, he said. To me, the road Ive been on, they all mean something. In 91-degree weather, Vogelsong became overheated only when reliever Burke Badenhop hit him with a pitch. Blue Jays 5, Angels 4, (10) TORONTO The Los Angeles Angels are stumbling into their showdown with first-place Texas. Hisanori Takahashi surrendered Edwin Encarnacions game-ending RBI single in the 10th inning and the Angels lost 5-4 to the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday. Not a good road trip, Angels outfielder Torii Hunter said of the 2-4 swing through New York and Toronto. Well just have to try and bounce back, starting tomorrow. Second in the AL West, the Angels return home Monday to open a fourgame series against Texas. The Angels play the Rangers seven times in their next 12 games. Its make or break here coming up, starter Dan Haren said. This is probably one of the toughest stretches of our schedule. Sundays defeat was the fifth time this season the Angels have lost when leading after eight innings. We feel that if we get leads on a consistent basis, were going to hold them, manager Mike Scioscia said. Our issue has been the margins by which weve been getting leads late has been very, very tight.

Stymied by Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton for seven innings, the Brewers used a wild pitch to help tie the game in the eighth inning and then a game-ending sacrifice fly to grab a 2-1 win in 10 innings over the struggling Pirates and a series sweep. Jose Veras relieved Morton with a runner on second in the eighth inning and retired Casey McGehee on a flyout. Joel Hanrahan was then brought in and struck out Nyjer Morgan, but the ball bounced away from catcher Michael McKenry and Morgan reached first base. Hanrahan was charged with a wild pitch on the play. Ryan Braun then singled up the middle to score pinch runner Jerry Hairston Jr. to tie the game 1-1. Hanrahan was able to get Prince Fielder to fly out to end the inning. That was a huge break for us, said Brewers manager Ron Roenicke.

Dodgers 7, Astros 0LOS ANGELES Hiroki Kuroda pitched seven strong innings, Justin Sellers hit a three-run drive for his first major league homer and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Houston Astros 7-0 on Sunday to sweep their three-game series. Matt Kemp matched his career high with his 28th homer for the Dodgers, who had lost four in a row before the lowly Astros came to Chavez Ravine. Dioner Navarro also went deep and scored twice. Kuroda (8-14) allowed five singles, struck out six and walked one. The 36year-old right-hander, who came in tied with recently demoted Astros left-hander J.A. Happ for the most losses in the NL, won for only the third time in his last 15 starts despite a season ERA of just 2.88. Kurodas last five victories have come in games in which he didnt allow a run, dating to his 2-0 win at Pittsburgh on May 11. The rebuilding Astros have dropped a season-worst six straight games since unloading outfielders before the non-waiver trade deadline.

WP LeBlanc, Willis 2, Chapman. T:08. A,286 (42,319). Padres 7, Reds 3CINCINNATI Left-hander Wade LeBlanc decided he wasnt going to change a thing at Great American Ball Park, not even after it gave up eight homers in one game. Good decision. LeBlanc went six innings for his second career victory at the homerfriendly ballpark, and the San Diego Padres scored four runs off an ailing Dontrelle Willis for a 7-3 victory Sunday that avoided a sweep by the Cincinnati Reds. A day after the Reds hit seven homers, they were limited to just four hits, including Jay Bruces three-run shot off LeBlanc (1-2). The left-hander had pitched at Great American once before, throwing six shutout innings in a victory last season. LeBlanc watched from the bench on Saturday night as the teams combined for eight homers in Cincinnatis 13-1 win, one that might have tempted him to become a litte more careful than usual. You cant alter the way you pitch based on the park youre in, especially with the stuff I have, said LeBlanc, who gets batters out by changing speeds rather than overpowering them.

The Cubs stopped Ugglas 33-game hitting streak and rallied from a four-run deficit to beat the Atlanta Braves 6-5 on Sunday for their fourth straight series win. The Cubs have won 11 of 14. Ugglas streak was the longest in the majors in five years. He was 0-for-3 with an RBI. Thats more games than I thought I would ever have, Uggla said. His best chance to extend the streak came in the fifth. Second baseman Darwin Barney made a diving catch of Ugglas fly ball in shallow right field. Barney was fully extended when he made the catch in front of right fielder Tyler Colvin.

Ron Washingtons reigning AL champions are on quite a roll, finding ways to win the tough ones and the strange ones exactly when they want to be playing their best. They held on through all kinds of interesting circumstances Sunday. David Murphy hit a tiebreaking RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning, and Texas survived after blowing a sixrun lead to beat the Oakland Athletics 7-6 and complete a three-game series sweep. Mike Adams (1-1) pitched a 1-2-3 eighth for the victory, then Neftali Feliz finished for his 23rd save in 29 chances as the Rangers won their fourth straight road game heading into a key four-game series with the Angels in Anaheim. Were excited about it, slugger Josh Hamilton said of his teams recent run of success. I dont want to say it relaxes us, but it makes us want to get after it more and send a message. A month and a half to go, all the rest of the series with them are very important. Mitch Moreland hit a sacrifice fly, Michael Young and Mike Napoli each drew bases-loaded walks against former Ranger Rich Harden and firstplace Texas extended its winning streak in the rivalry to eight games.

Moving about .500 would be a nice start. Danks pitched six strong innings, Brent Lillibridge hit a three-run homer and the White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 6-2 on Sunday. Paul Konerko added three hits for the White Sox (60-60), who have won eight of 10 to reach .500. They havent had a winning record since they were 7-6 on April 15. Alexei Ramirez had two hits and scored twice as Chicago improved its abysmal home record to 26-33 and moved within four games of AL Central-leading Detroit, which lost 8-5 at Baltimore. The White Sox also won consecutive games in a single series at U.S. Cellular Field for the first time since June 21 and 22 against the Cubs. I think .500 is a little over blown, Danks said. Obviously, we didnt expect to be .500 at this point coming into the year. Were looking at more Cleveland and Detroit than being .500. Thats just a reality. We have to win ballgames.

One inning later, the Arizona starter tumbled to the ground while throwing a pitch and had to come out after all.

I was put on a good position coming over here, said Marquis, acquired in a July 30 trade from Washington. I finally was getting the results I had wanted to, so to finish on this note. Hopefully its not the end. Angel Pagans line drive went off Marquis right shin with two outs in the third. An inning later, Marquis hit Josh Thole with a pitch and dropped to the ground after his delivery. Mariners 5, Red Sox 3 SEATTLE Charlie Furbush allowed just one run in a career-best seven innings, Casper Wells homered and scored two runs and the Seattle Mariners beat Boston 5-3 on Sunday afternoon, taking two of three from the AL East-leading Red Sox. For the first time since late June the Red Sox failed to win or split a series and their lead in the AL East dwindled to a half game with the New York Yankees getting rained out on Sunday. Furbush held the Red Sox bats in check, giving up four hits in just his fifth start of the season. Furbush (3-4) struck out a career-high six and didnt allow a hit until the fourth inning. Tim Wakefield lost his second straight decision and was knocked around by the Mariners for the second time this season. In late July, Wakefield gave up 10 hits and seven runs to Seattle in a victory. On Sunday, Wakefield (6-5) was credited with a complete game after throwing eight innings on Sunday, giving up four earned runs and nine hits. He struck out four, but was denied his 200th career victory for the fourth straight start. Kevin Youkilis hit a two-out, two-run homer off Seattle reliever Jeff Gray in the eighth inning. Youkilis 17th homer came after he had missed the first two games in the series with a stiff back.

S aying newly crowned PGA champion Keegan Bradley was practically born to play golf is like saying Barry Bonds got a headstart by being Bobbys son. His father, Mark, is currently the head pro at Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis Club in Wyoming after stints in Boston and Vermont. Bradley got plenty of lessons and all the time he needed at the practice range, free of charge. Turns out he was schooled, as well, by one of his aunts, who knew plenty about the game and even more about the tenacity it takes to play golf at the highest levels. That would be LPGA Hall of Famer Pat Bradley, whom renowned sports psychologist Bob Rotella once called the toughest player he ever saw. I grew up going to Pats tournaments, totally idolizing her and wanting to be like her out there, he said, with the Wanamaker Trophy perched nearby. I remember as a kid going out to her tournaments and literally staring her in the face, and Im her nephew, but she was so into it, she wouldnt even recognize me. And I thought that was cool, said Bradley, now 25. Some of that coolness apparently made it into Bradleys DNA. The last time a golfer won a major in his first try was Francis Ouimet in 1913, and until late Sunday afternoon, it looked like another century might slip by before it happened again. Bradley began the day trailing third-round co-leaders Jason Dufner and Brendan Steele, a good pal, by only a stroke; by the time he stood on the 16th tee, though, he was down five shots with only three holes to make up the differ ential. Yet some of that familial toughness revealed itself as he walked toward No. 16 after dumping a ball in a pond at the 15th and carding a disastrous triplebogey. I remember walking off that green thinking, You know, the last four holes are so tough here that somebody could have a five-shot lead. It doesnt matter, Bradley recalled. The gap closed when Dufner, who played the final four holes at 3-under through the first three rounds, made three bogeys over that same stretch in the last one. Bradley sealed the deal in the three-hole playoff with two straight birdies, closing with a very workmanlike par. I kept thinking about the playoff I won at the Byron Nelson, and the same thing happened to me in that. As soon as I realized I was going into a playoff, I completely calmed down, he said. During the familys time in Vermont, Bradley did a fair share of ski racing as a youngster, but didnt need long to decide between the two sports. He was 12 years old and looking down the barrel of a tough slalom run in Killington when the decision was practically made for him. It was raining, cold, sleeting and Im at the top of this mountain going, This is not as much fun as golf. I love golf so much more. As Bradley recalled that moment, his mother, Kaye, sat in the back of the interview room, alternately nodding or chuckling at the memory and crying tears of joy. He always said he was going to do this, she said. I still have a letter he wrote in the first grade saying he was going to be a PGA pro. Ive got pictures of him on the range at four. Grandma Bradley sent over his first set of clubs plastic, of course for Christmas, and Keegan almost wore those out. He was so devoted. He wanted this so badly. I used to worry what would happen if it didnt come to pass. She often looked to her husband to be the detached voice of reason any time the discussions turned to Keegans career. But he wasnt much help that way, Kaye Bradley said. He used to say all the time, Hes the real deal. But I didnt want it to be this or nothing. I made sure he got his college degree. Yet it was Kaye who was unabashedly proud to revive a Bradley tradition. When Pat won her first tournament, in Australia, it was the middle of the night back at the family home in Westford, Mass. Determined to celebrate, Pats mother ran up and down the streets ringing a cowbell and waking up plenty of her neighbors. The bell is actually in the Hall of Fame now, Keegan Bradley said. My mom has started her own, new tradition, a takeoff on that. She runs up and down the street like a crazy woman with wind chimes. Might have to get that bell out of retirement, Bradley mused a moment later. Id like to hear it ring at least once. and his confidence in commissioner Mike Slive. If you look at what the member institutions have won on the gridiron and all sports, for that matter, weve done very, very well, Gearhart said. Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe and the conferences board of directors discussed the future of the conference and Texas A&Ms possible departure during a conference call Saturday. The board strongly conveyed to Texas A&M its unanimous desire that it remain a Big 12 member, and acknowledged its value to the conference, the Big 12 said in a statement Saturday night. Texas State Rep. Dan Branch, the chairman of the Texas House Committee on Higher Education, called a hearing before his committee for Tuesday with Big 12, SEC and Texas A&M officials. Loftin said he has accepted Branchs invitation to participate in the meeting. These are extremely complex issues, Loftin said, and it is imperative that we proceed methodically and in the best interests of Texas A&M. The Aggies football team went about business as usual Sunday with two indoor practices. Coach Mike Sherman reiterated late in the afternoon that hes not in the loop on developments involving the SEC and his sole focus is on the Sept. 4 opener against SMU. My comment that I dont pay a whole lot of attention to it, is accurate, Sherman said. Senior safety Trent Hunter says the Aggies have followed the coaches mandate to block out the rumors and concentrate on football. Not been very hard at all, Hunter said. Our coaches made a very good point of it. They nipped it in the bud on the first day dont talk about it, dont tweet about it, dont Facebook about it. Its not anything thats going to affect us playing SMU in that first week. The school said athletic director Bill Byrne was traveling back from France and also was not available. RICKIES REFLECTIONS: Rickie Fowler played in all four majors for the first time in his young professional career. And despite only seriously contending in the Bristish Open this season, believes hes learned a few things that will move him up the leaderboard in 2012. Fowler closed the PGA Championship on Sunday with a 68, leaving him 51st at 6-over par. He was 38th at the Masters, missed the cut at the U.S. Open before his fifth place finish at Royal St. Georges last month. Definitely learned a bit, Fowler said. Played good in a couple of Open championships overseas and look forward to getting into some more of those and getting some better finishes than the other majors. Fowler hoped that would be this week at Atlanta Athletic Club, instead an opening 74 and a third-round 75 took him out of the mix. Fowler didnt want his major farewell to be another sky-high performance. Fowler made consecutive bogeys on the second and third holes that took him to 10-over par when things turned. I really didnt want to finish double digits over par, he said. So I had something to shoot for. Fowler got on a run of five birdies over his next 13 holes to move up before a bogey on the last hole he put his drive in the water on the 18th ended things. PHIL S WEEK: Phil Mickelson never got the stellar round he expected to have at Atlanta Athletic Club. Mickelson wrapped the PGA Championship with a 70 to finish at even par. I felt like I was one good round away, 4or 5-under par the first three days of getting in it, but just wasnt able to do it, he said. I just really struggled making birdies here. Mickelson thought he might have a Sunday run after reaching 2-under heading to the back nine. But then came a bogey at 10 and a par on the 551-yard 12th hole to take away the momentum. I was thinking eagle on 12 and didnt get it done, he said. I certainly thought there was an opportunity here. Mickelson ended his major season with a top-20 performance. He was 27th in defense of his Masters title, then was a non factor at the U.S. Open. He was in the lead at the British before falling back to second behind Darren Clarke. ALLENBYS CHANCES: Australias Robert Allenby knows he helped himself in his try for the Presidents Cup international team with a final-round 68 at the PGA Championship. He also knows he couldve done much, much more. Allenby came into Atlanta Athletic Club 13th in the international points standings. The top 10 automatically qualify for Novembers matches at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia. Captain Greg Norman adds two additional selections. Im trying my hardest, Allenby said. Greg knows that Ill do as good as I can do at the moment to try and get there. Allenby was on the way to perhaps at top 15 PGA finish, standing 2-under through 13 holes Sunday and staring down a makable birdie putt on No. 14. Thats when things changed. Allenby made bogeys on the 15th, 17th and 18th holes to fall to 1-over, tied for 26th. Still, thats better than six players ahead of Allenby in the standings who failed to make the PGA cut. events. Bradley stuffed his shot into 8 feet for birdie on the 16th. Behind him in the final group, Dufner hit into the right bunker, blasted out to 10 feet and made bogey. Now his lead was down to two shots. Dufner arrived on the 17th tee in time to watch as Bradley rattled in a 35-foot putt, pumping his fists as his caddie stood behind the hole holding the flag over his head with both arms. Dufner did well to find the middle of the green for what appeared to be a safe twoputt par. But he ran his first putt 10 feet by the hole and three-putted for bogey. Just like that, they were tied. With the pressure as great as it had been all day, both played the 18th the same way dry. Both had long two-putts for par from one side of the green to the other. They finished at 8under 272. Dufners 5-iron on the opening hole of the playoff the uphill 16th came within an inch of hitting the hole and stopped 6 feet away. Bradley answered with a shot into 4 feet and made the birdie, while Dufner missed his putt. On the 17th, Dufner again three-putted for bogey to give Bradley a two-shot lead going to the 18th. The final drama for Bradley was watching his 6-iron descend toward the green, clearing the lake with not much room to spare. Dufner rolled in a birdie, but by then it was too late to recover from his mistakes. Im so new at this situation, I dont know if I appreciate it as much as I will soon, Dufner said. I might look back in 10 or 15 years and be disappointed if I never get another chance. They finished one shot ahead of Hansen, whose lone bogey of the final round on the 16th hole kept him out of the playoff. The Dane closed with a 66, matching the best score of the final round. The group tied for fourth included 2001 champion David Toms (67) and two others who stayed in the game until the very end. Robert Karlsson got within one shot of the lead with a 5-foot eagle putt on the 12th hole. The Swede never made another birdie, though, and finished with three straight bogeys for a 67. Scott Verplank holed out a bunker shot on the 16th and was tied with Bradley going to the 17th, but his tee shot bounced off the wall and into the water for a double bogey. He closed with a 70.

Mark Wilson Family resemblance puts Bradley in winners circle Jim Litke AP COLUMNIST Burress out for tonights game Associated PressHOUSTON The return of Plaxico Burress will have to wait. Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has work to do with his other receivers anyway when New York opens the preseason against Houston on Monday night. The Texans, meanwhile, are eager to see how well theyve learned Wade Phillips new 3-4 defensive scheme. Houstons defense can only improve after ranking last against the pass last season (267.5 yards per game), the main culprit in a 6-10 record. Mondays game wouldve been notable for the resurfacing of Burress, who signed with the Jets on July 31 after serving a 20-month prison sentence on a gun charge. But Burress wont even make the trip to Texas after spraining his left ankle in practice last week. The other stars on both teams arent expected to see much action, either. Jets Pro Bowl center Nick Mangold will not travel, either, after hurting his neck Thursday, and Arian Foster, the NFL s leading rusher in 2010, is also not expected to see action because of a hamstring strain. In his limited time Monday, Sanchez can focus on building chemistry with free-agent pickup Derrick Mason, who was brought in to essentially replace Jerricho Cotchery, who was cut. New York also lost Braylon Edwards and Brad Smith in free agency, but resigned go-to receiver Santonio Holmes.

Apes win again with $27.5M Help does $25.5M D AVIDG ERMAIN AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES Rebellious apes have held off Southern maids for a narrow win at the weekend box office. Studio estimates Sunday pegged Rise of the Planet of the Apes at $27.5 million, good enough for its second-straight No. 1 finish. The 20th Century Fox release raised its 10-day domestic total to $104.9 million. The Planet of the Apes prequel came in just ahead of The Help, a drama about Mississippi maids during the civil-rights movement that debuted at No. 2 with $25.5 million. The Help, a DreamWorks release distributed by Disney, has taken in $35.4 million domestically since opening Wednesday. The Warner Bros. horror sequel Final Destination 5, the latest in the franchise where death stalks victims who had been fated to die earlier, opened at No. 3 with $18.4 million. The weekends other two new wide releases had soft openings. Sonys action comedy Minutes or Less, starring Jesse Eisenberg as a pizza deliveryman forced to help rob a bank, was No. 5 with $13 million, just behind Sonys surprise animated smash The Smurfs, which slipped to fourth place with $13.5 million and lifted its threeweek total to $101.5 million. The singers from TVs Glee failed to find a big-screen audience as 20th Century Foxs Glee: The 3D Concert Movie opened outside the top-10, finishing at No. 11 with just $5.7 million. The concert film was shot during the casts recent North American tour. Rise of the Planet of the Apes and The Help have exceeded their studios early box-office expectations. Both received strong reviews, Apes for surprising drama amid dazzling visual effects to create the simians, The Help for great performances from Viola Davis, Emma Stone, Octavia Spencer and their co-stars in the adaptation of the best-seller about black maids who go public with stories about working for often racist white employers. Youve really got to see it to believe it because of the effects, Fox distribution executive Chris Aronson said of Apes. The combination of the effects and an emotional story makes for a very satisfying trip to the movies. Female crowds made up 74 percent of the audience for The Help, and 60 percent of viewers were older than 35. Thats a sign The Help could have a long shelf life at theaters, since women and older audiences tend to get drawn to films through word-of-mouth rather than rushing out over opening weekend the way young crowds do. The Help already has far outpaced the $20 million Disney executives hoped for over the first five days, and the film is playing strongly in both urban and middle America markets, said Dave Hollis, the studios head of distribution. The book and the way it kind of rose to the best-seller list was very much this word-of-mouth, viral thing where people say, youve got to read this thing I just read, and were hoping the movie can do the same kind of thing, Hollis said. The Smurfs also has outstripped expectations. The family hit added $60 million overseas to raise its worldwide total to $242 million, and Sony announced a sequel over the past week. We were ready to make the second one before we even released the first, said Rory Bruer, head of distribution for Sony. We felt confident it was going to work, but I dont think anybody had any idea it was going to work to this level. Overall domestic business increased for the fifth-straight weekend. Revenues totaled $152 million, up 6 percent from the same weekend last year, when The Expendables led with $34.8 million, according to box-office tracker Were ending the summer on a high note, said analyst Paul Dergarabedian. The usually unsung month of August can be the time when a lot of unexpected things happen that benefit the box office. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday. BOX OFFICE 1. Rise of the Planet of the Apes, $27.5 million. 2 The Help, $25.5 million. 3. Final Destination 5, $18.4 million. 4.

And for once, the author, activist and feminist icon isnt talking about a case of gender inequity at home or a human rights violation across the globe. This time, shes talking about her age. Steinem is 77, and most people are even more shocked than she is. Not only because she looks fiftyish, but because she is, in the minds of many, frozen in the 1970s a tall, slim, striking woman with long streaked hair (its still streaked, but shorter now) and those big aviator glasses. But four decades have indeed passed since Steinem helped launched the womens movement. And this summer finds her in a reflective mode: working on a book about her years on the road a combination of essays and memoir and promoting a new documentary celebrating her life. Gloria: In Her Own Words premieres Monday on HBO. For the documentary, producers amassed a treasure trove of film clips, photos and other tidbits that tell the story of Steinems long career. Nestled on a couch in her comfortable Manhattan apartment one recent afternoon, Steinem acknowledges that often such tributes come at the end of ones life and career and she has no intention of either ending anytime soon. My hope is, this film will make people think: Its been 30 or 40 years. Where do we want to be 40 years from now? Besides, she adds: I want people to realize that if a very imperfect person did this, maybe they can, too! That self-effacing tone runs through much of what Steinem says she likes to stress, for example, that if she had never come along, the same progress for women would have been achieved anyway. (Steinem was a highly visible spokeswoman for the womens movement, but there were many others who made it happen, too.) Her admirers say theyre not so sure. It would have been like Christmas without Santa Claus she was the goddess of the movement, says Sheila Nevins, co-producer of the new documentary with Peter Kunhardt, who directed. She doesnt take credit, but I give it to her. Associated Press Activist Gloria Steinem poses for a portrait. Steinem reflective on HBO E NTERTAINMENT Paris in Manila London premiere


B6 M ONDAY, A UGUST 15, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT In the past couple of weeks, we have looked at several no-trump contracts. We have primarily covered the establishment of tricks, with a secondary glance at stopping the opponents from defeating the contract. Todays deal provides another example, one that would defeat many players at the table because a warning bell would not be ringing. What should South do in three no-trump after West leads the spade five? I agree with Souths opening bid, despite two unstoppered suits. If he opens one club and partner responds one of any suit, South has no rebid. It is responders responsibility to cover openers weak suits as North does admirably here. South starts with seven top tricks: one spade, two hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. And he is assured of at least two more club tricks. At the table, many players would duck the first trick, take the second or third spade, then attack clubs. The weakest would finesse on the first round. The better would cash the ace, cross to dummy, and finesse on the second round. The best would cash the ace and king, knowing that if East has the queen, the contract is always safe. Here, though, nothing works and declarer dives to defeat. Spades breaking 5-2 is the danger. What is Easts one high spade? If the 10, South needs to play low from the dummy at trick one. But it is twice as likely to be the queen or king. Then declarer should take the first trick with dummys ace to block the suit. East might well throw his queen under the ace, but South takes the club finesse in safety.

Recently, Mom had surgery. As a result, she lost weight and has been unable to gain it back. She also suffers from depression, for which she takes medication. Recently, her mind has been slipping more and more, and she seems disorganized in her thinking. My husband brought this to her attention, and she says her anorexia is making it difficult for her to eat enough to gain back the weight, and she has no idea what else could be wrong. We asked her to talk to her doctor. I believe her poor eating habits are interfering with her ability to function normally. I am upset and frustrated because I want to help her. My husband, on the other hand, has dealt with this for most of his life and says the best he can do is bring it to her attention. He feels what she does with the information is up to her. Is there something more I could do? If not, how do I get past the frustration? Concerned in New York Dear N.Y.: Moms confusion could be linked to any number of things, including post-operative complications and various medications, as well as long-term anorexia. She should not be self-diagnosing. You cannot force her to take better care of herself, but please urge her to talk to her doctor about her confusion, and offer to go with her if you think it will help. Dear Annie: My husbands brother owes us money. We helped him pay off a debt of several thousand dollars with the agreement that it would be repaid. That was three years ago, and we havent seen a dime. Recently, this same brother asked us to purchase a watch he wanted, saying hed give us the money next week. I told him we were in no position to cover this expense and although Id be happy to pick it up for him, hed have to give us the money in advance. This was a luxury item, and it made me angry that hed expect us to front more money for him. So I reminded him of his still-outstanding debt. Now my husband is angry, saying I had no business speaking to his brother about it. But, Annie, the money he borrowed is half mine, as we pool our equal salaries. When you marry into a family, do you not have a say in these financial matters? Is he just old-fashioned? Memphis Dear Memphis: The money may be half yours, but the brother is all his, and this is why your husband reacted so strongly. He felt it was his place to deal with his sibling, and normally, we would agree. However, by failing to hold his brother accountable for the debt, he put you in that position by default. He knows this, which also could be contributing to his anger, as it likely embarrasses him. Gently broach the subject with your husband in private, and see if the two of you can reach some agreement. Dear Annie: This is in response to the letter from S., the widow who has joined various organizations, but hasnt found romance after 20 years. I would like to recommend something youve never mentioned square dancing. My husband and I have belonged to a square dancing club for 13 years. It is great exercise for both body and brain, and gets you away from the TV. If you go to the lessons alone, you will more than likely find a partner. There are a lot of widowed men and women who keep dancing with our group because of the friendships they have formed. The rest of us gladly loan our spouses so they will have partners. That makes them feel welcome, and over time, all the nice men and women who wanted to find a partner have done so. Salem, Ore.
