Like an over-hyped summer movie, Tropical Storm
Isaac passed over the Florida
Keys leaving residents without
much to talk about the morning after other than the fact
that it was finally over.
By the time the disorganized
yet vast tropical storm reached
Key West Sunday afternoon, it
hadn’t been able to pull itself
together long enough to deliver much more than a scrubbing of rain and winds.
The strongest sustained
winds in Key West ranged

from 35 to 39 mph. A little
over one inch of rain fell overall. The storm surge registered
at between 1 to 3 feet at high
tide, between 5 to 7 a.m. No
serious injuries or accidents
were reported to police.
“We were spared the brunt
of the storm,” said Will Ulrich,
a meteorologist at the Key
West office of the National
Weather Service. “For a time

PERRY HALL, Md. — A

fire on the first day of classes Monday at a Baltimore
County high school, getting
off two shots and wounding a classmate before being

approval.
All the pieces of the puzzle
nearly came together — belatedly — when a plan proposed
by developer Rick Dover,
who already operates assisted-living facilities under the
name Family Pride in North
Carolina and Tennessee, won
city approval for negotiation.
But commissioners balked at
giving a $1 per year 99-year
lease to a profit-making firm.
Instead, they offered Dover a
49-year option, which he said
would not fly with his investors. While those talks were
ongoing, Dover’s undisclosed

CRIME REPORT
School teacher attacks
brother’s girlfriend
CITIZEN STAFF
KEY LARGO — A teacher
allegedly seeking revenge for
her brother’s drug-related trip to
jail was arrested Saturday after
deputies say she attacked the
woman who turned her brother
in, according to Monroe County
Sheriff’s Office arrest reports.
The 28-year-old Key Largo
resident and teacher at St. Justin
the Martyr Catholic School was
charged with misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor damage
to property under $1,000 due to
criminal mischief.
Deputies were first called to 32
Buttonwood Drive at 4:30 a.m.
after a woman called 911 to have
her boyfriend and their fellow
roommate arrested for marijuana use after a lover’s quarrel, reports say. Deputies arrived
and arrested the roommate, but
not the boyfriend, for possession of cocaine, marijuana and
prescription pills as well as drug
paraphernalia.
About seven hours later, the roommate’s sister reportedly went to
the house, went to the girlfriend’s
room, grabbed her hair and began
punching her, reports say.
“Since you called the cops on
my brother, now you can call the
cops on me!” the suspect reportedly said.
The two fell to the ground during the ruckus before the boyfriend broke up the fight, sending the alleged aggressor on her
way, reports say. Arriving deputies found a fingernail on the
bedroom floor.
The alleged victim gave deputies a tag number and the suspect was stopped a short time
later near John Pennekamp State
Park where a deputy noticed the
female driver was missing a fingernail and appeared to have a
broken finger, reports say.
The suspect apologized and
stated her anger got the better of
her, reports say.
She was taken to Monroe
County Detention Center in
Plantation Key.
Information in the Crime
Report is obtained from reports
provided by area law enforcement agencies.

Watch for those false alarms
Walk-in vaccinations offered
Tourism officials tout Florida Keys after storm
The Police Department now has a
“false alarm” reduction program,
according to spokeswoman Alyson
Crean.
According to the ordinance, alarm
owners must register their system,
which costs $50. Contact the alarm
company to register, or visit www.crywolf.us/keywestfl and complete the
application under “new alarm users.”
If there are no false alarms for a year,
the registration renewal is free. Those
who don’t register their systems and
have a false alarm will be fined $200 for
each instance. Once a system is registered, there is no penalty for up to two
false alarms a year. After that, the fees
start at $150 and rise to $600 for 10 or
more false alarms in one year.
The Monroe County Health Department
encourages adults age 19 and over to get a
Tdap vaccination, which is for protection
against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis,
also known as whooping cough.
The latter can kill infants, so the best
way to protect them is by vaccinating all
adults, who could at anytime come in
contact with babies.
The department holds walk-in Tdap
vaccination clinics from 2 to 4 p.m.
Tuesdays and 10 a.m. to noon Fridays at
the Gato Building, 1100 Simonton St., Key
West. Or appointments may be scheduled by calling 305-809-5603.
Shots will be given regardless of a person’s ability to pay, but people are asked
to bring an insurance card or proof of
income.
The Monroe County Tourist Development Council has initiated efforts
to let travelers know that the Florida Keys tourism infrastructure soon will
be fully functional following Tropical Storm Isaac.
“A marketing priority for us is to ensure that Labor Day weekend business is preserved,” said Harold Wheeler.
With most Labor Day visitors coming from within Florida, the TDC is
airing television spots throughout the state. Digital media is running on
Google/Yahoo/Bing with search engine marketing and on VisitFlorida.com
ad banners, according to John Underwood of Tinsley Advertising.
From a public relations perspective, many broadcasters, in their last
reports from the Keys, emphasized that Isaac left little damage. News stories that also highlight the destination’s readiness to accommodate travelers are already being published on news websites such as “USA Today.”
The TDC’s website at www.fla-keys.com has been updated continuously since the Keys were positioned in Isaac’s five-day cone. And TDC’s
social media channels have been populated with the “all-clear” message.
The TDC is encouraging all Florida Keys tourist-related businesses to
use their own social media channels to communicate that the Keys are
back after Isaac.

caused commissioners pause
at the start of this year. Dover
ended up bowing out.
Meanwhile a clock is ticking. The place-holder lease for
the Assisted Care Coalition was
extended to the end of this year,
and commissioners may be
hard-pressed to extend it past
that time. Commissioner Tony
Yaniz is among the voices on
the dais who has made clear he
will not support such a move.
Yaniz, the city’s newest commissioner, has questioned why
the Truman site, already tapped
to be the home of a park and
marina, should remain a site for
an assisted living project.
“You don’t place this on your
most valuable property,” he
said.
Another developer, Wendover
Housing, a Florida firm that
has built affordable housing
throughout the state, is making its pitch. The Orlando-based
Affordable Housing Institute

sinking at the discretion of law
enforcement officers based on
certain criteria, such as listing,
being aground, beached or taking on water.
The rules also create “noanchoring buffer zones” adjacent to the mooring fields
in the cities of Key West and
Marathon, where officials have
expressed concern about vessels breaking free and striking
boats inside managed mooring
fields, according to Rich Jones,
county marine resources director.
The county would not have
violators’ vessels removed, but
the owners would be warned
and eventually face fines if the
issues were not addressed. After
a warning, a $50 fine would be
levied on a first offense. The fine
would increase to $100 for a second offense, and $250 for a third
offense. All subsequent offenses
would be $250. Owners would
have 30 days between fines to
address issues, Jones said.
The rules are part of a pilot
program and would be in effect
through 2014, after which the
FWC would determine whether
to ask the Florida Legislature to
make them permanent.
The program gives local governments more control over
live-aboard and cruising vessels
moored or anchored on state
bay bottom.
The FWC meets Sept. 5 in
Tampa to discuss the rules.
even the most affordable component has made Lopez, whose
support has been seen as crucial to the package, ask a lot of
questions. One issue is the fact
that, with a nonprofit operating
the facility as requested by the
city, there will be no tax dollars generated directly by the
project.
The plan had been for tax
money to revert back to the
Bahama Village community, which Lopez represents,
through its Tax Increment
Funding status.
But Lopez said there is much
more than TIF money at stake.
“I want to be able to compare the old Dover plan to the
current plan that we are looking at, that plan we were so
close to passing,” Lopez said. “I
want a spreadsheet comparison
and I have asked city staff to
put that together. I will meet
with them and talk before I can
talk with the developer. One of
the things I hear most from the
constituents that I represent is
none of us are going to be able
to afford to go in there. If that
is true that’s a problem. I know
there are Medicaid waivers
but Medicaid will not pay for a
housing subsidy.”
The potential of making some
of the units qualify for federal
subsidies as Section 8 housing is one solution developers
have put forth, but Lopez wants
details.
“I believe everybody is in
favor of the assisted living, there
is a lot of question as to whether
it goes there, at Truman.”
Both Lopez and Yaniz have
discussed with city staff the
possibility of an alternative
site, such as property behind
Poinciana Elementary in New
Town.
But proponents of the plan
say that will isolate seniors in
a way that was not intended.
It would also run afoul of the
referendum, they note.
“There really is no place else
for it,” said Swift. “The people
who would live here are not
in convalescent care. To place
our senior citizens in an area of
town where they could be integrated in the community is vital.
They can go down to the waterfront, participate with programs
at the band shell, turn around
and walk a half a block and be
in the Bahama Village neighborhood. Anyhow, it was already
made in referendum and they
would be going against the will
of the people to change that
decision.”
Swift and other supporters
say the prevailing concern is
that, in most cases, seniors
have nowhere to “age in place”
near Key West. The need of one
spouse in the case of a married
couple, Swift said, who needs
more care than that spouse can
provide, risk being separated
with many miles between them.
The burden on grown children
of seniors needing special care,
of having to commute between
Key West and Miami to visit, is
another problem, Swift said.
He expresses confidence
that Lopez and other commissioners, once they have had a
chance to fully review the new
plan, will approve it. But there
is another clock ticking in addition to the one governing the
lease on the property.

After three years of often
heated discussion, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is preparing to vote next week on the
final incarnation of a program
that creates strict guidelines
for boats anchored outside of
managed mooring fields in the
Florida Keys.
The Sept. 5 vote is on rules
that are part of a statewide effort
to deal with derelict and abandoned vessels, which become
hazards to coastal navigation
and burden local governments
with costly removal. Monroe
County spent roughly $270,000
last year on the removal of such
vessels.
The FWC had scheduled a
June vote on Keys-specific rules,
but postponed it because the
agency sought additional public comment. The rules have
been challenged by live-aboard
boaters who anchor off Key
West, and who say the rules are
unnecessarily strict.
Areas targeted by the program are unmanaged mooring
fields — Key West Harbor, Cow
Key Channel off Stock Island
and Sunset Key off Key Largo.
The rules require proof of regular sewage pump-out and the
tagging and eventual removal
of vessels at risk of sinking or
becoming derelict. Vessels
would be labeled at risk of

Outlook is not good for
Social Security reform
A
n objective analysis of
the Social Security system concludes that by
2033 the surplus of $2.7 trillion will run out and beneficiaries can expect to see payments cut by 25 percent as
the program becomes wholly
dependent on tax revenues.
This is not a new problem.
Elected leaders have known
for years that without changes Social Security cannot be
sustained long term. Not too
many things are more important for American citizens
than knowing whether they
can count on the government
retirement program to supplement personal savings and
sustain them in retirement.
For many, Social Security
will be the only retirement
safety net, or at least form
the bulk of it. Currently,
about one-quarter of married
couples and just under half of
single retirees rely on Social
Security for 90 percent or
more of their income, according to the Social Security
Administration.
Yet discussions about
how to assure the long-term
viability of the retirement
program are largely absent
from the presidential race
and from most Senate and
House contests. The reason,
of course, is politics. Shoring
up Social Security will
mean making hard choices.
Candidates conclude voters
want to her pabulum rather
than honest policy proposals.
The longer the nation puts
off these choices, the more
difficult they will become,
with less time to get the system caught up.
Democrats have been
more eager to talk about the
issue of late. That’s because
they see an opportunity in
attacking proposals offered
by Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan,
the man Mitt Romney picked
to be his Republican vice
presidential running mate.
In his 2010 “Road Map for
America’s Future,” Rep. Ryan
proposed allowing younger
workers to divert one-third
of their Social Security taxes
into private accounts.
This was a bad idea when
President George W. Bush
proposed it in 2005 and it is
a worse idea now, the experience of the 2008 crash showing what market volatility can
do to private investments.
Editorial
Social Security should be a
rock solid promise of money
that future retirees can count
on. It is enough that 401(k)
retirement plans are vulnerable to the vagaries of the
markets.
It is understandable
why Democrats want to
run against Ryan’s “privatize Social Security” plan.
Unfortunately, they offer
no alternative, at least at
the top of the ticket. In this
campaign, unlike the last,
President Obama has not said
how he would go about fixing
Social Security.
Candidate Obama had a
viable idea when running
in 2008. The Social Security
Administration now imposes
a tax on the first $110,100 of
a worker’s wages, a number
that increases annually with
inflation. In 2008 the president proposed increasing that
cap to $250,000. Workers and
their employers split the 12.4
percent tax, each paying half.
A recent Associated Press
analysis found that increasing
taxes in such a manner would
have the biggest impact on
closing the funding gap, far
more than raising the age of
eligibility to collect Social
Security. Boosting the cap to
$200,000, for example, would
eliminate 72 percent of the
shortfall.
But the president has calculated that talking about
Social Security payroll tax
increases this time would be
politically dangerous, particularly given that Romney is
sticking to the GOP pledge of
no new taxes. Romney’s plan,
such as it is, calls for gradually increasing the retirement
age (impractical for many
with physically difficult jobs)
and slowing the growth of
benefits paid to those in
higher incomes. He offers no
specifics.
The solution is likely some
combination of tax increases,
increasing the retirement
age modestly and reducing
payments to the well off. But
given the lack of any debate
pre-election we don’t hold
out much expectation the
politicians will compromise
to fix it post-election.

Letters to the editor
No need to wait
to fire administrator
One time a vendor forgot to
lock a candy machine at school
and within hours a number of
students emptied the machine
by stuffing the free candy into
their pockets.
The iPhone and iPad incident
at the county is similar except
instead of the students or
employees grabbing the iPads
and iPhones, it was the county
administrator and many of his
appointed department heads.
The county administrator is
either too stupid to know right
from wrong or he is simply
dishonest. I maintain it is the
latter, but either way we cannot afford to keep this man in
this position.
An argument was made he
has done a good job keeping
our taxes low. I maintain it is
not such a good job if he has
eliminated county employment positions and in so doing
we have lost services. A marketing tool we are all familiar
with is when we see a 12-ounce
box of cereal suddenly become
a 10-ounce box, but the price
remains the same. Not such a
good deal.
It would appear to me this
county administrator has a
pattern of putting unqualified employees into positions
of power and authority, and
he is then able to manipulate
these unqualified employees
into compromising positions
for his advantage.
The man needs to be fired.
Even if there is some legal way
for him to sue the county, the
opportunity to keep either a
dishonest or stupid person in a
position of power and authority opens the county up for
much greater loss.
Getting back to my candy
machine robbed by the hungry students. What would we
think if it was the principal
of the school that stuffed his
pockets with the candy bars? It
is either out of stupidity and/
or culpable dishonesty that
county commissioners defend
this man. He needs to be fired;
there is no reason to wait until
Sept. 10 to do so.

The GOP needs to stay
out of women’s panties
OK, I think I figured it out.
If my letter seems a little hot,
it’s because the author is hot
under the collar about GOP
plans for abortion and medicare.
1) No abortions, ever, ever
— rape, incest, the life of
mother and/or child, still no
abortions.
2) A bill is brought to the
floor of Congress making rape
legal. After all, they coined the
term “legitimate rape” and we
can’t waste a good ole GOP
phrase!
3) A woman is forced to
have the child but can’t feed
the child because food stamps
have been eliminated.
4) A child goes to school
where school lunches have
been eliminated. Now remember, the mother can’t buy food
because welfare has been
eliminated along with food
stamps.
5) If all the above doesn’t get
the job done, the child who is
now older is sent off to one of
the many wars the GOP has
created and gets killed.
6) And if the older child
gets killed while at war, he/
she will never see the age of
retirement so he/she will never
get Medicare. Thus, cuts in
Medicare.
Sound scary? It is, and
there are women out there
who will still vote Republican.
The Republicans claim there
is too much government and
the government needs to stay
out of things. Well until the
government, at least the men
in government, start wearing
panties, they need to stay the

far, been able to block
broad national curbs
on BPA, new findings
on transgenerational
effects may finally put
a dent in Big Chem’s
lobbying efforts.
One good sign: In
late July, a Senate
committee, for the first time,
passed the Safe Chemicals
Act, landmark legislation
sponsored by Sen. Frank
Lautenberg, D-N.J., that would
begin to regulate the safety of
chemicals.
Evidence of transgenerational effects of endocrine
disruptors has been growing
for a half-dozen years, but it
mostly involved higher doses
than humans would typically
encounter.
Now Endocrinology, a peerreviewed journal, has published a study measuring the
impact of low doses of BPA.
The study is devastating for
the chemical industry.
Pregnant mice were exposed
to BPA at dosages analogous
to those humans typically
receive. The offspring were
less sociable than control mice
(using metrics often used to
assess an aspect of autism in
humans), and various effects
were also evident for the next
three generations of mice.
The BPA seemed to interfere
with the way the animals processed hormones like oxytocin
and vasopressin, which affect
trust and warm feelings. And
while mice are not humans,
research on mouse behavior
is a standard way to evaluate
new drugs or to measure the
impact of chemicals.
“It’s scary,” said Jennifer T.
Wolstenholme, a postdoctoral fellow at the University
of Virginia and the lead author
of the report. She said that the
researchers found behaviors
in BPA-exposed mice and their
descendants that may parallel
autism spectrum disorder or
attention deficit disorder in
humans.
Emilie Rissman, a co-author
who is professor of biochemistry and molecular genetics at University of Virginia
Medical School, noted that
BPA doesn’t cause mutations
in DNA. Rather, the impact is
“epigenetic” — one of the hot
concepts in biology these days
— meaning that changes are
transmitted not in DNA but
by affecting the way genes are
turned on and off.
In effect, this is a bit like
evolution through transmission of acquired characteristics — the theory of JeanBaptiste Lamarck, the 19thcentury scientist whom high
school science classes make
fun of as a foil to Charles
Darwin. In epigenetics,
Lamarck lives.
“These results at low doses
add profoundly to concerns
about endocrine disruptors,” said John Peterson
Myers, chief scientist at
Environmental Health
Sciences. “It’s going to be
harder than just eliminating
exposure to one generation.”
The National Institutes of
Health is concerned enough
that it expects to make transgenerational impacts of endocrine disruptors a priority for
research funding, according
to a spokeswoman, Robin
Mackar.
Like a lot of Americans, I
used to be skeptical of risks
from chemicals like endocrine
disruptors that are all around
us. What could be safer than
canned food? I figured that
opposition came from treehugging Luddites prone to
conspiracy theories.
Yet, a few years ago, I
began to read the peerreviewed journal articles, and
it became obvious that the
opposition to endocrine disruptors is led by toxicologists,
endocrinologists, urologists
and pediatricians. These are
serious scientists, yet they
don’t often have the ear of
politicians or journalists.
I’m hoping these new studies can help vault the issue
onto the national stage.
Threats to us need to be
addressed, even if they come
not from Iranian nuclear
weapons, but from things as
banal as canned soup and
ATM receipts.

NEW YORK
California town on edge
Security campaign for sports
Gas prices rise due to Isaac
A series of small to moderate earthquakes that shattered windows and
knocked trailer homes off their foundations is putting people in this small
farming town 100 miles east of San
Diego on edge as they continue to
feel jolts that scientists said could last
for days. Hundreds of quakes shook
Imperial County in California on
Sunday and were felt in surrounding
counties. Most were minor, but two
registered at magnitude-5.5 and magnitude-5.3. No injuries were reported
in the region, which has a long history
of such earthquake swarms. “The type
of activity that we’re seeing could possibly continue for several hours or even
days,” said U.S. Geological Survey geophysicist Robert Graves.
The Department of Homeland Security
is urging fans at professional sports events
to help keep the country safe by reporting
anything suspicious they see.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet
Napolitano joined New York Police
Department Commissioner Raymond Kelly
on Monday to announce the security effort.
It’s an expansion of Homeland Security’s
“See Something, Say Something” campaign.
The words were coined by the NYPD as a
security slogan for the city’s transit system
after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
Napolitano says each citizen plays a critical role in identifying and reporting suspicious activities and threats. She says any
information will be shared with officials trying to avert security breaches.
Pump prices are heading higher as
Tropical Storm Isaac forces several
major refineries along the Gulf Coast to
halt production in preparation for high
winds and heavy rains.
Fear of reduced gasoline supplies
sent wholesale gasoline prices up 7.7
cents, or 2.4 percent, to $3.155 per gallon Monday. The average retail price
for a gallon of gasoline in the U.S. rose
to $3.75 on Monday, and it could pass
$3.80 by Labor Day weekend, says Tom
Kloza, chief oil analyst at the Oil Price
Information Service.
Oil fell Monday because Gulf Coast
refineries won’t be using as much in the
next few days and damage to gas operations in the Gulf of Mexico seemed less
likely as the storm’s winds lessen.

Meteorologist Jessica Neiles checks the radar on Monday, in
South Burlington, Vt. Meteorologists at Vermont’s National Weather
Service office now have a new tool in helping improve their forecasts. On Monday, U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy helped inaugurate the
upgraded, dual polarization Doppler radar serving the region.
Officials say the upgrade to the so-called dual-pol system is the
most significant enhancement ever made to the nation’s radar network since Doppler radar was first installed in the early 1990s.

streamed away from the school
toward a nearby shopping center where they met their parents.
Cathy Le, 15, said students
were panicking as they tried
to find out what was happening, texting and calling each
other frantically as they waited
in lockdown.
Le said she and other students were locked in their
classrooms for more than an
hour.
At the scene, buses, emergency vehicles and parents
in cars filled the roadway
between the high school and
the shopping center. There

Kristin Kraus, whose son
James attends the school,
described hearing about the

However, Kraus said, “within a

PERRY HALL, Md. — A 15year-old student opened fire on
the first day of classes Monday
at a Baltimore County high
school, getting off two shots
and wounding a classmate
before being rushed by teachers, authorities said.
Baltimore County Police
Chief James Johnson said at a
news conference that officers
do not believe the victim, a 17year-old male, was targeted by
the shooter, a 15-year-old who
is also a student at Perry Hall
High School. A male suspect
was taken into custody after
the shooting, and police have
the weapon, although police
would not say what kind of gun
it was.
Johnson said at about 10:45
a.m., a student walked into the
cafeteria and pulled out a gun.
He fired one shot before being
grabbed by teachers, and then
another shot went off as teachers grabbed him, Johnson said.
Kelsey Long, a junior at Perry
Hall, said she was in the cafeteria when she heard gunshots.
“I heard a loud popping noise
and we thought it was someone popping a bag, but then
we heard it again and everyone
started screaming and ran out
to the front of the school,” Long
told The Associated Press in a
Twitter message.
Police said several other
students suffered minor, nonshooting injuries during the
incident.
“We have some heroic
and brave faculty members,”
Schools Superintendent Dallas
Dance said. “They responded
very quickly to minimize damage.”
Johnson said the suspect
acted alone. He did not answer
numerous questions from
reporters about a motive.
The school was evacuated,
and students were escorted to
a nearby shopping center and
middle school.
WJZ-TV showed video of a
shirtless male with his hands
behind his back being put into
a police cruiser.
Perry Hall is a middle-class
community along the Interstate
95 corridor, northeast of
Baltimore city. The school is
the largest in the county, with
2,200 students.
County Councilman David
Marks, who lives next door to
the school, said he had received
dozens of phone calls and text
messages from worried parents
and residents.
“This is a very comfortable,
very safe community, and it’s
an excellent high school,” said
Marks, who graduated from
Perry Hall. “I think this is an
aberration, but clearly one that
is horrifying, particularly on
the first day of school.”
Television coverage showed
scores of police cars surrounding the school and parked on
neighborhood streets. A group
of officers with weapons drawn
staked out a corner of the building, one of them lying prone on

GLENEAGLES, Scotland — European Ryder

Vince Young is out of work, Terrell Suggs is on

Teams needed to be down to 75 players
Monday, and Young was the biggest name to
lose his job. After Buffalo acquired Tarvaris
Jackson from Seattle to back up quarterback
Ryan Fitzpatrick, 2006 Offensive Rookie of the
Year Young was released.
“Vince, I don’t want to get into what he can
do and can’t do, it just didn’t work out,” general
manager Buddy Nix said. “We just need to move
on and give this guy a try.”
Young knew what was coming and tweeted
earlier in the day: “Respect Bills fans. I want to
thank the Bills organization for the opportunity
and with the organization and my teammates
good luck this season.”
It’s been a tough few years for Young since he
was exiled by the Titans for inconsistent play on
the field and several incidents off it. Young had a
disappointing season as Michael Vick’s backup
in Philadelphia last year, and couldn’t make it
through the preseason with Buffalo (No. 19 in
the AP Pro32).
Suggs, on the other hand, comes off his best
pro season, when he was voted Defensive Player
of the Year. But he tore his right Achilles tendon
in the offseason and isn’t expected back before
November.

took the hits and gave some back. This was
definitely very physical, very different from
America,” Diggins said.
Detroit (No. 11 tie, AP Pro32) placed on PUP
running back Jahvid Best, who hasn’t played
since October because of concussion problems.
All 32 teams must be down to the regular-season roster limit of 53 on Friday.
Among the kickers given the boot were Olindo
Mare by Carolina, Josh Brown by the Jets, and
Neil Rackers by Washington.
Mare has played 15 NFL season and got a
four-year, $12 million contract last year. But
Justin Medlock, last with the CFL’s Hamilton
Tiger-Cats, appears to have won the kicking job
in Carolina (No. 20, AP Pro32).
Veteran punter Nick Harris was beaten out by
sixth-round draft pick Brad Nortman.
“Both of those decisions at kicker were very
difficult,” Panthers general manager Marty
Hurney said. “In both situations we felt like
we had two young kickers with strong legs
who had very good training camps. So did
Olindo and Nick, but we made a decision to
go with the younger guys based on their performances.”
Brown lost out to incumbent Nick Folk in New
York (No 17, AP Pro32), and Rackers was beaten
out by Graham Gano in Washington (No. 25, AP

NEW YORK — Maria Sharapova’s stomach
ache turned out to be nothing more than that.
That lopsided loss she suffered at the Olympics
— well, that may have only been a false alarm, as
well.
Playing her first match since a blowout loss to
Serena Williams in London and a stomach virus
that forced her out of two tuneup tournaments,
Sharapova returned to tennis in fine fashion
Monday at the U.S. Open.
The third-seeded Russian came back from a
three-week break and defeated Melinda Czink
of Hungary, 6-2, 6-2, in a stress-free, 67-minute first-round match at blustery Arthur Ashe
Stadium.
Her victory in front of the half-filled stadium
was her first match since a 6-0, 6-1 loss to
Williams at the London Games in a gold-medal
showdown that looked and felt more like one
of these first-round wipeouts Sharapova usually
inflicts.
Turns out, Sharapova was dealing with some
stomach pain then, which only got worse a few
weeks later. She went to the doctor for a series of
tests, including an ultrasound to see if she was
pregnant. The test turned up negative.
“Just because of the pain I was having, it was
really weird,” Sharapova said. “They told me I
was fine, not pregnant. Then, I’m like, ‘Can I get
my money back?’”
Wearing a soft-pink dress with a touch of mauve
— more subdued than what she usually wears for,
say, a nighttime appearance — Sharapova served
five aces and maxed out at 115 mph. It took her 31
minutes to finish the first set.

first round of the U.S. Open at New York City.

Stiles wins, moves up Web.Com earnings list
K
eeping up with the news
from behind the storm shutters.
Darron Stiles, the Keys’ only
connection to pro golf as far as I
know, took a major step this week
at getting back on the PGA Tour by
winning the Web.Com (formerly
the Nationwide) stop at
the News Sentinel Open
at Knoxville.
That put $90,000 in
his pocket, but more
importantly moved him
from 30th to 8th on the
Web.Com’s money list.
The top 25 at the end of
the season get PGA Tour
cards for next year. The
39-year-old has played in the big
tour only once this season, tieing
for 59th at the U.S. Open and collecting $19,955.
Stiles has been a visitor to the
home of his brother-in-law and
sister, Pete and Carolyn Nelson,
in Big Pine. The golfer’s aunt, Pati
Day, lived several years in Key West
and is a long-time acquaintance of
mine.
No, it wasn’t on TV. I just keep
up with him on the Internet every
week.

Hunkered down on

lot of golf, including The

an amateur.

The Marlins lost late Saturday

12-2, as Noriatsu Osaka hit three

Florida’ Saunders
sidelined for 2 games
Long leaves practice
with knee injury
SURRY, Va. — The founder
of an organization that bought
NFL star Michael Vick’s former
Surry County dogfighting compound is being sought on animal cruelty charges.
Dogs Deserve Better bought
the 15-acre tract for use as a
dog sanctuary.
Chief Animal Control Officer
Tracy Terry says numerous
complaints about the property
prompted a visit from the state
veterinarian’s office. The sheriff’s office has been unable to
find the organization’s founder.
BOSTON — David Ortiz
doesn’t want his season
— and possibly his Red Sox
career — to end on the disabled list.
The Red Sox placed Ortiz
back on the 15-day disabled
list Monday due to lingering problems with a strained
right Achilles, but the DH
said he hopes to play again
this season.
The 36-year old Ortiz said
he’ll have an injection in the
next day or so and hopes to
return in September.
GAINESVILLE — No. 23
Florida will be without safety De’Ante “Pop” Saunders
for the first two games of the
season.
Coach Will Muschamp says
Saunders will “sit the first two
games right now.” Muschamp
declined to say whether
Saunders has been suspended,
but the coach says the sophomore from DeLand would
have missed Saturday’s season
opener against Bowling Green
anyway because of a hamstring injury.
DAVIE — Miami Dolphins

Long left practice Monday
after injuring his right knee
during an 11-on-11 drill.
He sat in a cart while being

reporters.
Back trouble slowed Long
last season, and he went on
injured reserve before the
final game.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL
No. 7 ’Noles debut new offensive line in opener
BY BRENT KALLESTAD
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE — Florida State
coach Jimbo Fisher is introducing a
new offensive line in Saturday’s opener against Murray (Ky.) State.
The seventh-ranked Seminoles’
hopes for getting back to a BCS bowl
for the first time in seven years depend
on their younger and bigger offensive
front keeping quarterback EJ Manuel
healthy.
Protecting the quarterback has
been an issue in Fisher’s first two
seasons at Florida State where injuries have knocked Manuel out of the
lineup just like they did his predecessor, Christian Ponder, not to mention
limiting the running game.
Fisher released his depth chart for
Saturday’s game and will be going with
two tackles making their first college
start on the offensive line along with
two guards each making their second
start. Junior center Bryan Stork is the
veteran of the group with 10 previous
starts for the Seminoles.
The coach is convinced bigger is
better up front not only for protecting Manuel, but giving the QB time to
throw to a heralded group of receivers and igniting a dormant running
game.
“The size and athleticism, a different group of guys, different cats,”
Fisher said Monday. “We have made
some really good strides in that area.
They’ve got to go do it Saturday.”
The recast unit averages 319 pounds
per man with the lightest of the interior offensive linemen (Stork) at 312
pounds.
Sophomore guards Josue Matias
and Tre’ Jackson are each approaching 330 pounds. Both made their first,
and only, start in Florida State’s 18-14
win over Notre Dame in the Champs
Bowl.
In a most closely watched position
battle, 320-pound Menelik Watson
held off Daniel Glauser in a battle of
European athletes at the right tackle
position. Watson is from Great Britain,
and the 305-pound Glauser, who is
penciled in as the primary backup at
both tackle spots, is from Switzerland.
Both transferred earlier this year from
junior colleges.
The 6-foot-6, 310-pound Cameron
Erving is starting at the critical left
tackle spot following his offseason
move from defense. He initially rejected the idea of making the switch after
a lifetime of playing on defense before
he embraced the idea after Fisher
made a second overture earlier this
year.
“Football is football to me,”
shrugged Erving.
CLASH OF TRADITIONAL TITANS
Alabama, Michigan to duke it out at Cowboys Stadium Saturday night
BY JOHN ZENOR
The Associated Press
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Colossal college football programs Alabama and Michigan have
combined for 1,709 wins and 25 national titles
but seldom tangle on the field.
When they do, it’s usually at some big bowl
game not starting the season on Sept. 1.
The second-ranked Crimson Tide and No.
8 Wolverines are gearing up for their opener
Saturday night at Cowboys Stadium with an
address that fits the iconic history of these programs: One Legends Way.
Alabama receiver Kevin Norwood knows it
well. He has a picture of the stadium on his
phone.
“I’ve been looking at that stadium for like
months now,” Norwood said Monday.
That both these teams open the season in the
Top 10 is, in some ways, just a nice bonus in this
rare meeting of storied programs.
For all their outsized history, Michigan and
Alabama have only met three times, all in
January bowl games and two won by the
Wolverines. The total margin: Michigan 77,
Alabama 75 with the last meeting being the
Wolverines’ 35-34 overtime win in the Orange
Bowl on Jan. 1, 2000.
Tradition aside, the Tide is trying to show it’s

a legitimate contender for a second straight
national title and third in four years.
Michigan is aiming to build on an 11-win
season and BCS bowl victory over Virginia Tech
but not — coach Brady Hoke wants to make this
clear — to reestablish that powerhouse reputa-
tion for a program three years removed from
losing a school-record nine games. That never
went away, Hoke says.
“I don’t buy into that and never have,” he said.
“But I do think it’s a great marker for where we’re
at as a program and what we can be. I think
every first game every year though you learn
a lot about yourselves, because every team is
different.
“I went back and thought about last year at
this time. I didn’t know if we were going to win
two games let alone 11, because you don’t know
until you get in the real deal as far as playing
games. Honestly, we’ll find out. We’ll find out
about ourselves.”
That’s what openers are for, right? A learning
experience. Some are built these days for TV
ratings, too.
There’s no grace period for Alabama or
Michigan to ease into the season or for new
starters and key backups to get acclimated to
new roles. The Tide has gotten used to it, with
early nonconference games against Penn State
the past two years and previous openers against
Virginia Tech and Clemson. They’re 4-0 in those
games.
Alabama coach Nick Saban said opening with
these types of games provide a boost in offseason work.
“It really gives the players something to

look forward to in the first game and it gives
the fans a lot to look forward to in the first
game,” said Saban, who coached Michigan
rival Michigan State from 1995-99. “I think it’s
good for college football when we have these
kinds of games.”
MLB: ROUNDUP
McLouth HR lifts Orioles
to 4-3 win over White Sox
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
BALTIMORE (AP) — Nate McLouth hit a tworun homer in the eighth inning, Lew Ford also
connected and the Baltimore Orioles rallied to
beat the White Sox, 4-3, on Monday night, ending Chicago’s six-game winning streak.
It was the franchise-record 13th consecutive
one-run win for the Orioles, who trailed 2-1 in
the sixth and 3-2 in the eighth.
After the White Sox went up 3-2 in the eighth
against Pedro Strop (5-2) on a run-scoring infield
single by Adam Dunn, Baltimore answered in
the bottom half against Brett Myers (2-2).
Mark Reynolds drew a one-out walk and
McLouth drove a 1-0 pitch far over the wall in
right-center. It was his third RBI of the game and
second home run since the Orioles purchased
his contract from Triple-A Norfolk on Aug. 4.
ATHLETICS 3, INDIANS 0
CLEVELAND — Brett Anderson gave up two hits, one
on a questionable call, over seven innings as Oakland
blanked Cleveland.
Oakland came in one-half game behind Tampa Bay
in the AL wild-card race and earned its ninth win in 11
games.
The Indians lost starter Roberto Hernandez (0-3) after
213⁄ innings with a sprained right ankle and fell to 5-24
since July 27.
Anderson (2-0), in his second start since returning
from Tommy John surgery in July 2011, retired the first
13 batters until Michael Brantley was ruled safe with
an infield hit in the fifth inning. TV replays showed that
umpire Jerry Meals missed the call.
Grant Balfour worked the ninth for his 15th save in 17
chances.
RED SOX 5, ROYALS 1
BOSTON — Daisuke Matsuzaka returned from the disabled list with his best start of the season and Cody Ross
drove in three runs, leading Boston over Kansas City.
The Red Sox took three of four games in the wraparound series and won for the second time in three
games since trading Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett and
Carl Crawford in a salary-dumping, nine-player deal to
the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday.
Jacoby Ellsbury had a solo homer and double for
Boston, which opens a nine-game West Coast trip tonight
against the Los Angles Angels.
Matsuzaka (1-3), on the DL since early July with a
strained neck muscle, gave up an unearned run and five
hits, walking two and striking out six over seven innings
in just his sixth start of the season.
It was the first time Matsuzaka’s pitched more than six
innings. He began the season on the DL after ulnar collateral surgery in June last year.
The Red Sox won for just the seventh time in 19
games.
Luke Hochevar (7-12) took the loss, giving up five
runs and eight hits in his second complete game this
season.
MARK DUNCAN/The Associated Press
Oakland right fielder Josh Reddick (16) celebrates after a 3-0 win over Cleveland on Monday night in
Cleveland. Reddick homered off Indians starting pitcher Roberto Hernandez in the second inning.
MARINERS 1, TWINS 0
MINNEAPOLIS — Felix Hernandez struck out five in a
five-hitter and Eric Thames hit a solo homer in the eighth
inning to lift Seattle over Minnesota.
Hernandez (13-5), who picked up his 23rd career
complete game and ninth shutout, hasn’t lost a decision
since June 12. Franklin Gutierrez went 1 for 2 with two
stolen bases in his first game since June 28 because of
a concussion.
Liam Hendriks (0-7) was almost King-like, but it
wasn’t quite enough to get him his first career victory. He
gave up three hits and struck out six in nine outstanding
innings, his only blemish the homer to Thames.
Joe Mauer had a single and Justin Morneau had a
triple for the Twins, who have lost 14 of their last 17.
CUBS GET RECKER FROM A’S FOR BLAKE LALLI
CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs have acquired catcher
Anthony Recker from the Oakland Athletics in exchange
for catcher and first baseman Blake Lalli.
Recker was a member of Oakland’s opening day roster
but was sent to Triple-A Sacramento after hitting .129 in
31 at-bats over 13 games.

be pleasant.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec.
21) -- If you have to deal with a
difficult person, it might be hard
to keep your anger in check.
It would be best to smolder in
silence rather than respond in
kind.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) -- Financial arrangements
with friends could cause problems. Should a disagreement
arise over something material,
suffer the loss rather than jeopardize the relationship.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) -- Sometimes there is a fine
line between being assertive
and being just plain aggressive.
If you’re not considerate, you
might have trouble distinguishing
between the two.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
-- It’s never a good idea to butt
into a testy situation that doesn’t
directly concern you. You won’t
derive any benefits from getting
in the middle of someone else’s
mess.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
-- If you encounter someone who
is as strong-willed and inflexible

You will be bolder and much
more enterprising in the year
ahead regarding developments
that could increase your holdings. You’ll channel your drive
in positive directions, and the
results will be to your liking.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Don’t allow any outside influences to cause you to be unduly
rushed regarding tasks that are
detailed and intricate. Haste will
most assuredly perpetrate serious errors or complications.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If
you try to juggle accounts around
in order to rob Peter to pay Paul,
all you’ll do is create even more
havoc in your financial affairs.
Live within your means.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
-- Your loved ones will follow the
example you set when you deal
with them. If you are cranky,
short-tempered or impatient, it
isn’t likely that your family life will

are, any trivial disagreement can
quickly be blown out of proportion. Be careful.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Make sure that someone whose
cooperation is essential to you
is handled with the utmost diplomacy so that he or she doesn’t
become an adversary instead of
an ally.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - Don’t take something that you
need repaired back to an establishment that gave you problems
in the past. You’d be wise to look
for a place that is more reliable.
CANCER (June 21-July
22) -- You should try not to be
overly possessive of a person
with whom you are emotionally
involved. Unfortunately, the tighter you try to hold on to him or her,
the faster she or he is apt to run.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- An
outsider should not be allowed
to try to help resolve a disagreement between you and your special someone. If you think things
are heated now, outside intervention would only pour more
gasoline on the fire.

The defenders can defeat
By Phillip Alder
Emily Procter, who plays
Calleigh Duquesne on TV,
said, “One hundred and eighty
episodes of ‘CSI: Miami’
and never the same lipstick
twice.”
One hundred and eighty
bridge deals and never the
same hand twice. But often
you will plan to bid twice,
and when you do, you should
think of not only the first
round but also the second.
Look at the South hand in
today’s diagram. West opens
one diamond, North makes
a takeout double, and East
raises to two diamonds. What
should South do?
Yes, East should have been
more ambitious, jumping to
partnerships, there is a strong
case for playing that three of
a minor over a takeout double
is a limit raise and a two-notrump response is pre-emptive. If the final contract is to
be three no-trump, which is
possible when responder has
game-invitational values, it is
probably better played by the
opener.)
Is South going to make one
bid now and pass thereafter,
or would he be willing to bid
a second time if West or East
competes to three diamonds?
Here he should be happy
to bid twice. So, to make it
easy to show both of his suits,
South should advance with
two spades. Then, over three
diamonds by an opponent, he
can economically rebid three
hearts. (If South were weaker,
three hearts if they arrange
for East to get a spade ruff.
But they are making three
diamonds, so that would be
no great loss for North-South.
And East-West might not find
the killing defense.

WOMAN WONDERS IF SHE HEARS THE
WEDDING BELLS MAN DENIES
DEAR ABBY: I am a woman in my
early 40s. I have two children. I have
never been married. Five months ago I
met a fine man. “Mr. M.” is in his mid40s and was married for about four
years in the late 1990s.
I am very much in love with
Mr. M., and he has shown me
how much he loves me in many
different ways. However, he says
there are no wedding bells in
the future.
Do you think Mr. M. is afraid
to make a commitment because
of his divorce? Has a woman
ever proposed marriage to a
man? Is there anything wrong
with it?
I have one more problem. Mr.
M. likes to be all alone some days.
And he takes long weekends to get
away by himself. Is this common for a
lot of men? -- CONCERNED IN NEW
JERSEY
DEAR CONCERNED: There
is nothing “wrong” with a woman
proposing to a man; many women
have done it. And yes, it is entirely
possible that Mr. M.’s experience
with divorce has left him marriageshy. Since you are serious about him,
pursue the reason for his statement
that there are no wedding bells in the
future.
While it’s common for men (and
women) to spend “alone time” and
have separate interests, they don’t, as a
rule, involve spending long weekends
away by themselves. Much depends
on the nature of the pursuit that’s
taking him away, and how often he
needs time to himself. If Mr. M. goes
on an occasional spiritual retreat, I see
nothing unusual about it. However, if
he is a loner by nature -- the person
who will be lonely is YOU.
DEAR ABBY: We have read about
married couples renewing their
marriage vows. My wife and I have
been married 50 years and thought
perhaps this would be a way of
celebrating this marvelous milestone.
However, the more we discuss it, the
more illogical it seems to us.
We took our vows, ending with “
... ‘til death do us part.” Over
the course of the marriage,
we have had many wonderful
experiences as well as some of
the worst life can offer. Through
it all, we have loved and cared
for each other. There was never
a time that we did not think in
terms of “we.”
We believe it would be an
insult to each other to renew
that which seems to be in
good condition. Vows don’t wear out.
Devotion to each other becomes a
way of life, to the point that life is
unthinkable for each of us without the
other.
We still find each other attractive,
and sexy, too. Like wine, old vows
improve with age and become more
precious. -- YOUNG AT HEART IN
CONNECTICUT
DEAR YOUNG: You appear to
have an enviable marriage, and I
congratulate you both. However, some
couples experience the same thrill
from renewing their vows that they
did in pledging them in the first place.
Please do not judge them or minimize
the reaffirmation of their love.
DEAR ABBY: Over the years, you
have provided me with insight and
many grins and chuckles. I hope to
return the favor by providing you with
at least a smile:
Question: What is the name of
Bambi’s convent?
Answer: Deer Abbey
-- JOSEPH IN OVERLAND PARK,
KAN.
DEAR JOSEPH: That’s cute! I’d
send you a buck if you needed the
doe.
