Volunteers who have experienced
severe emotional distress are offering a sympathetic ear to those traversing the same stormy waters. Through a program called Community Action for Recovery and Education, people who have been labeled mentally ill are offered the opportunity to turn their own negative experiences into a path of recovery for themselves and others suffering under the same stigma. By early July, 20 people will have completed the 14-week intensive peer support training at the Willits CARE

The Mendocino County District Attorney��s Office said Thursday it is dismissing charges against Cheryl Miller, the San Francisco woman accused of killing her four children, because of issues with evidence and jurisdiction. On Nov. 2, 2006, Miller was charged with four counts of murder, with the special allegation that she committed multiple murders, in connection with the deaths of 11-day-old Sherry Mae Scott in 1965, 14-month-old Carla Marie Scott in 1966, 3-month-old David Wayne Scott in 1967, and 9-month-old Kimberly Dale Scott in 1970. When Kimberly Scott died, Miller and the baby lived in Calpella. According to reports from the District Attorney��s Office, Mendocino County does not have jurisdiction to prosecute Miller for the deaths of Sherry

Fugitive reportedly turns gun on himself
By KATIE MINTZ The Daily Journal
The Ukiah City Council autho- rized staff Wednesday night to pro- ceed with a petition to the State Water Resources Control Board that seeks to expand the area where municipal water can be used. If approved by the SWRCB, the petition will address three issues, according to city staff. First, it will extend the time the city has to put the full 20 cubic feet per second (cfs) allowed under its permit to use. Currently, the city uses less than half of that at approximate- ly 8 cfs, and could be stuck with that capacity in years to come if the extension is not granted. The petition would also give the city the ability to serve water to areas proposed for future annexation, if in fact they are eventually annexed, by including them in the permit��s place of use. Finally, it would allow the city and Millview and Willow County Water Districts to furnish water to each other in the event of an emer- gency, such as contamination or equipment failure. By designating the others�� wells as their own points of diversion in their respective per- mits, each entity could have its own water, as allowed under its permit, ��wheeled�� to it by another agency at the time of emergency. Approved 4-1, Councilman Phil Baldwin dissenting, discussion on the petition has drawn concerns about potential growth-inducing impacts since a council workshop on the issue held in November. While language in the permit would allow the ��wheeling�� of water only in emergency situations, the change in place of use to what has been designated by the council as its draft sphere of influence -- running

Shooting in Kunzler Ranch shop narrowly misses two
The Daily Journal
No one was injured in a Wednesday after- noon shooting in a rented shop in the 300 block of Kunzler Ranch Road. The Mendocino County Sheriff��s Office is seeking two sus- pects in the case on suspicion of attempted murder. According to sheriff��s reports, at 4:17 p.m. Wednesday, a 28-year-old Ukiah resident was working in a rented shop in the industrial com- plex when the two suspects, both described as black men in their mid-20s, came in and began talking to him. During the conversation, one of the sus- pects told the 28-year-old to ��give it up.�� A short time later, a 29-year-old man entered the shop and approached the group. When he got close, one of the suspects drew a handgun and fired it into a vehicle near the 28-year-old and then turned and fired at the 29-year-old, who was fleeing the building, according to sheriff��s reports.

AP NewsBreak: Bush administration close to shutting down Guantanamo
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Bush administration is near- ing a decision to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility and move the terror suspects there to military prisons else- where, The Associated Press has learned. President Bush��s national security and legal advisers are expected to discuss the move at the White House on Friday and, for the first time, it appears a consensus is developing, senior administration officials said Thursday. The advisers will consider a new proposal to shut the cen- ter and transfer detainees to one or more Defense Department facilities, including the maximum security military prison at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas, where they could face trial, said the officials. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were discussing internal deliberations. Officials familiar with the agenda of the Friday meeting said Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff, National Intelligence Director Mike McConnell and Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Gen. Peter Pace were expected to attend. It was not immediately clear if the meeting would result in a final recommendation to Bush.
Former AG Ashcroft: Administration officials feuded over eavesdropping
WASHINGTON (AP) — The administration was sharply divided over the legality of President Bush��s most controver- sial eavesdropping policies, a congressman quoted former Attorney General John Ashcroft as telling a House panel Thursday. ��It is very apparent to us that there was robust and enor- mous debate within the administration about the legal basis for the president��s surveillance program,�� Intelligence Committee Chairman Silvestre Reyes, D-Texas, told reporters after a closed-door meeting with Ashcroft. The point is critical to two matters being considered in the Democratic-controlled Congress: One is the House and Senate Intelligence committees�� ongoing review of 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which includes an extensive examination of the president��s warrantless eaves- dropping program. The other is the House and Senate Judiciary Committees�� parallel examinations of current Attorney General Alberto Gonzales�� service to the administration. Under that probe, for- mer Deputy Attorney General James Comey revealed that Gonzales, then White House counsel, tried to pressure him and a critically ill Ashcroft to certify the legality of the wire- tapping program. Comey and Ashcroft, who was in intensive care during Gonzales�� 2004 hospital visit, refused to comply.
Gates says no plans now to further extend military deployments in Iraq
WASHINGTON (AP) — Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Thursday he does not anticipate extending U.S. troop deployments in Iraq beyond 15 months, calling the idea a ��worst-case scenario.�� Gates endorsed the military��s efforts to work with some Iraqi insurgents who initially fought against U.S. forces. That may be the only way to bring peace to the bitterly divided nation, he said. ��If we refuse to work with or ally with everybody who��s been on the other side of the fence, then the prospects for making any progress in Iraq are pretty slim,�� Gates told Pentagon reporters at a news briefing. ��Trying to bring some level of peace to Iraq is trying to persuade some people who have been fighting to stop fighting and become a part of a political process.��

Is it ever OK to lie? A University of California professor said people lie twice a day. You can call them fibs, falsehoods, fish sto- ries, tall tales, speak ��editorial- ly,�� or with terminological inex- actitude or tell whoppers, but what��s really true is that lying has become as commonplace as paper money, and professor Bella DePaulo believes lying is ��almost as necessary.�� She has spent two decades looking at how and why people lie. A story from CBS continues quoting people and situations. DePaulo told ��Sunday Morning�� correspondent Tracy Smith, ��I don��t think it would be possible to have a life full of people who care about you if you didn��t lie to them.�� Another view... There are many organizations in this old world dedicated to helping humankind develop character: Churches, kids clubs of all kind, and others. Hubby and I just returned from a gathering in Texas of 9,000 Southern Baptists. At this convention, as well as hearing speeches and sermons in pulpits in several cities surrounding Father��s Day, the theme was all about integrity and honesty as the all-important trait for fathers to example for their children, and the necessity of our country returning to a moral standard. This message is exactly oppo- site of what the world seems to think is needed to ��get along.�� Will the next generation learn to value honesty? Sure, but they probably won��t get it from watching TV. In order to help foster integrity, Michael Josephson formed the nonprofit Character Counts, dedicated to teaching kids about honesty. Character Counts runs pro- grams in schools like Price Elementary in Downey, Calif. It seems to be working. ��Ethics is like a virus. A positive virus. And it will spread. And we��re gonna change pieces of the world, piece by piece,�� said Josephson. Oh, that each of us would determine that each day would be lived as if character counts! On another note... Speaking of setting the record straight, in the last column was mentioned that at the Veterans�� ceremony at the cemetery on Memorial Day, ��a 21 gun salute�� was fired. Thanks to Veteran Jim Howlett for this correction: ��Rifles fired in volley at a military burial is not a 21 gun salute. The latter consists of a single gun firing 21
Honesty and integrity among the next generation
Looking about
By Carole Hester
The Daily Journal
Verna Jacobs, Executive Director of the local Miss Mendocino County, Miss North Coast and Miss Northern Counties Scholarship Program, reports that our County will be well represented by five young women at the Miss California Scholarship Program this year. Miss Mendocino County is Liberty (Libby) Egloff, daughter of Craig and Caprice Egloff of Yorkville. Libby, a vol- unteer firefighter with the Anderson Valley Fire Department, was home schooled by her mother. She is currently a nursing student at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. Libby has recently been busy speaking to civic organizations and taking voice lessons to perfect the song she will perform in Fresno, ��Amazing Grace��. She also sang for the Memorial Day services at the Russian River Cemetery. Libby will champion the plat- form ��Getting Involved In Your Community�� and has applied for the Miss America Community Service Award. The recipient will receive a $1,000 scholarship in addition to the $1,000 or more that contestants receive at Miss California. Libby supports the con- cept of having an open and giving heart which is vital to the growth of each com- munity. Melissa Chaty, Miss North Coast, is the daughter of Dennis and Karen Chaty. She graduated from Westmont College with a degree in Psychology last year and plans to begin her Masters Degree in the Fall. She is considered one of the favorites to win the title of Miss California and would very much like to bring it home to Mendocino County to thank everyone for their support over the years. She was born and raised in Ukiah and Redwood Valley and served as Miss Mendocino County in 2002. She contin- ued in the program during college and is currently serving as Miss North Coast, one of the open titles established within the Miss Mendocino County Scholarship Program. Melissa is well known in the commu- nity for her vocal abilities and, according to her vocal coach, this year in Fresno she will perform the ��yummy�� pieces of the opera aria, ��The Jewel Song��, as record- ed by Charlotte Church. For the past five years, Melissa has supported the plat- form, ��Alzheimer��s Advocacy and Awareness��. She has extensive volunteer work related to her platform and is presently employed by the Alzheimer��s Association in San Diego where she assists with marketing, fundraising and community education. As a well-round- ed, mature candidate with a long-term platform of national importance, we are keeping our fingers crossed that she will be the one the judges select. Miss California will receive a $10,000 scholar- ship and represent the state in the Miss America Scholarship Program in January 2008. Melissa is also a contender for the Community Service award. She was 4th runner up to Miss California in 2006 and will have a large contingency of fans cheering for her in Fresno. Nicole Honaker, Miss Northern Counties, is the daughter of Bruce and Susan Honaker of Oakley, California. In January, Nicole won our other open title. Her platform is ��Youth Physical Fitness,�� and she will be performing a gymnastics routine to ��Pirates of the Caribbean�� at Miss California. In 2006, Nicole placed in the Top 10 and is well prepared to move up to the Top 5 this year. She is a student at Sacramento State University where she majors in Kinesiology. Nicole is pursuing a career in Physical Therapy. She has applied for the Scholastic Achievement Scholarship, an additional $1,000 scholarship which would be added to whatever she may win at Miss California. Nicole is proud to represent all of the Northern Counties with her excellent abilities. She has performed in Mendocino County for fundraisers and spoken locally on the importance of her platform. Sarah Ramming, Miss Mendocino County 2005, will also return to Miss California this year as Miss Sonoma County. She has perfected a classical piano piece that she hopes will capture a talent award. She is the daugh- ter of Dorothy Mazzanti of Redwood Valley and Jim Ramming of Willits. Sarah attended Mendocino College, and

Liberty Egloff Melissa Chaty Nicole Honaker Sarah Ramming With the nice warm weath- er comes thirst and what could taste better on a warm and sunny afternoon than a nice cup of cool lemonade? For years children have set up lemonade stands in their neighborhoods in hopes of making a well-earned buck or two. I can remember me and my younger brother Alan doing that over 50 years ago when it was five cents a cup. We did- n��t make a killing but we enjoyed the effort. We lived on the border of two large cities in the Bay area on a street just off San Pablo Avenue . . . . and the reality was that our back yard was in Oakland and our front yard was in Berkeley. Trader Vic��s was a ritzy dining house at the time on the corner about a block from our old Victorian and on Friday and Saturday evenings, we would pick all the roses or camellias in our yard, depend- ing on the season, tie a bow around them, stick in a a straight pin from my Mom��s sewing basket, and walk up to the escorts of the lovely ladies all dressed up in cocktail dresses sell our goods for fifty cents. I am sure the men and women were amused by our entrepreneurship while we were in awe of their attire and lovely cars. I bring up this memory because recently I was told about a group of youngsters ranging from four to seven who stood on a Ukiah corner selling lemonade. What made this story so unique was that the kids did a fairly steady business for the first hour and then a large fire truck spotted the sale, parked their truck and three tall firefighters, returning from an event, stepped out of their unit and strolled over to the stand. Needless to say the children��s reaction was precious. We all know that it is hard to not be impressed by a man in uni- form, but to a child, a fire- fighter, policeman or pilot must be the epitome of cool. If that were not enough, their wonderment increased as an ambulance crew came by a few moments later to top off the experience for these ambi- tious tykes. I know it��s a small town story, but many other such childhood joys and tradi- tions have been eliminated due to safety and a busy lifestyle. Isn��t it just great to be able to have that kind of thing still going on after years and years of lemonade stands? Some other local kids made their mark as well. Somehow the story didn��t get told, and I felt that it deserved our atten- tion. The Gifted And Talented Education Program, otherwise known as the GATE Program has been around in some form for three decades and provides students who might otherwise become bored with traditional schooling a little perk by offering them some special time set aside during the school week for a higher level of education. I remember my daughter Dana having the opportunity to go to the S. F. opera, and other educational field trips. There were also planned special events for the parents showing off displays the students had created about the solar system, volcanos and other scientific phenomenons. These were not ��Geeks�� (which I have always felt is an unfair term for unusually intelligent people). These were just bright kids with a lot to offer the world and who were given the gift of knowl- edge in a very malleable, use- ful method by the school sys- tem. This year, Ukiah Unified School District��s GATE kids placed second and third in the Odyssey of the Mind Redwood Regional Tournament in Santa Rosa. Odyssey of the Mind is a cre- ative international problem solving program. Students choose a long term problem and through creative problem solving and brainstorming, they create a solution that they perform at competition. Students are judges on how well they solve problems, work as a team, their style, and creativity. The program is designed for small groups making parent participation critical to the success of the program. Parents act as ��coaches�� to support the team. As an employer I can veri- fy that problem solving, work- ing as a team, style and cre- ativity make for the best employee any employer in any field (office, organization, construction, medical, enter- tainment, etc.) could ask for. It goes on daily in the workplace and those skills are very much in demand. Grace Hudson��s 4th graders won third place performing a theatrical presentation, Yokayo��s 6th graders were given a problem called ��Tag�� ��Em�� which called for them to design and build small vehi- cles and to run them on trips across a course while tagging them. They took second place for their efforts. Yokayo School��s 6th grade team went on to state tournament compe- tition in Visalia to place sixth out of thirteen teams. Not bad at all. Lots of credit goes to the parent-coaches and Robyn Gibbs, GATE Coordinator who said, ��We had six teams participate in the Odyssey of the Mind program. My hope is that we will have more teams next year. I��d like to see the program expand to middle and high school students.�� The community is grateful to the teachers and parents who made such an effort to challenge these extraordinary students. To find out more about the GATE program, you may contact Coordinator Robyn Gibbs at 463-3813 Extension 156. Remember, Out of the Mud, Grows the Lotus.

VIEWPOINTS
At long last, some California school districts have figured out how to keep the state's two-year-old high school exit exam from driving up an already appalling dropout rate. It's an idea that was first advanced in this column just about the time the first exit exams were adminis- tered, alarming prospective graduates who feared they might not get diplomas: Give students who pass all needed classes and meet other graduation requirements a different kind of sheepskin, but at least give them something. The fact that only a few districts so far have adopt- ed this solution might help explain why the graduation rate among seniors has been growing smaller each year since the exit exam entered the picture. In 2005, only about 300,000 of the 423,000 seniors who began the school year got diplomas. That was a 71 percent grad- uation rate, as reported by the state Department of Education, which is often accused of inflating its num- bers. By June of 2006, only 279,000 out of 421,000 seniors actually graduated. The rate was probably worse this year, with specific numbers not yet report- ed. The state is thus admitting that more than one third of students who start each year as seniors will not graduate. By contrast, less than 10 percent of seniors who took the exit exam failed to pass and were thus dis- qualified from graduation. How can this be? The implication is that about one-fifth of all high school seniors become so discouraged by the mere prospect of the exam that they simply give up and flee from school. Add them to a dropout rate of about one- third of all students who enter high school each year, and you get a total dropout rate that might be as high as 45 percent over the four years of high school, even though no officials will admit the figure is so alarm- ingly high. Those numbers show why it's crucial to come up with new ways to keep kids in school, even those who are terrified of taking the exit exam. Such fears mere- ly provide one more motivation for dropping out. Others reasons include motherhood, job income and, of course, gang activity and other crime. One key tactic is to find a way of recognizing stu- dents who can't quite pass the exit exam, but meet all other requirements. Enter the alternative diploma, called a "certificate of completion" by some of the approximately 25 districts that have begun handing them out. These sheepskins allow those who get them to participate in commence- ment ceremonies and walk onstage to pick them up without humiliation because no one in the audience knows which document is handed to them. There's really nothing new about this concept. Colleges and universities for hundreds of years have recognized different levels of diplomas: Designations like magna cum laude and summa cum laude essen- tially say that some graduates have been more acade- mically proficient than others, even though all grads have met the basic requirements. Similarly, certificates of completion tell prospective employers that students have attended and passed enough classes to graduate, even if they couldn't pass one test. Meanwhile, the full-fledged diplomas received by those who pass the exit exam tell employ- ers the minimum skills and knowledge the graduates possess. Yes, there is differentiation, as there should be. But it's differentiation without public humiliation in the form of being left out. "Why would we deprive these students of the opportunity to walk with their classmates?" asked one official of the Tustin school district in Orange County. Official numbers are not yet in, and even when they are, students who get certificates of completion won't be counted among those who graduate, but the bet here is that districts which award the certificates will achieve lower dropout rates than those which don't. For there are plenty of teenagers who would rather not show up at all than suffer the consequences of fail- ing an all-or-nothing exam. Instead of giving up on them or driving them away, why not recognize them for attending and passing plenty of classes? Why drive them away when they could be made welcome? That's only the first step, of course. The next is preparing all students well enough to pass the exam. But a lot of that step depends on students, their parents and other factors beyond the control of school offi- cials. At least by offering differential graduation docu- ments, some school officials will be saying they value all students who put forth the effort to attend their schools and pay sufficient attention to achieve passing grades.

Ukiah Hospice has some paid positions
To the Editor: The Ukiah Daily Journal recently fea- tured an article about hospice services in the Ukiah area. The article assumed that with the exception of our Patient Services Coordinator, Hospice of Ukiah outreach is covered by volunteers. We are a volunteer hospice, and that means that all of our expenses are covered by donations, and volunteers are essential in providing ser- vices to our patients and families, in our Thrift Store, and in our office. But we do have a paid professional staff which includes certified nursing assistants, a medical social worker, office managers in the office and the store, our administrator, and a chaplain. I have the honor of serving as the chaplain for Hospice of Ukiah, and I am certified with the Association of Professional Chaplains and have years of prior experience in hospital and clinical settings. For the record, our Patient Services Coordinator has a background as a certified hospice and palliative care nurse with years of experience. The correct address for our Hospice of Ukiah Thrift Shop is 724 S. State St. Thank you for bringing these corrections to the attention of the public. We are grateful to the Ukiah Daily Journal for publicizing the services we offer. Shoshanah Devorah Ukiah
Thank you
To the Editor: I��d like to publicly thank Ukiah Auto Dismantlers for all that they quietly do for the community. Most recently, they provid- ed cars for the Every 15 Minutes simulated car crash at Ukiah High school. We appre- ciate their contribution to discourage teenaged drunken driving. Wayne Hunt and his crew delivered these cars after hours and picked them up promptly after the event to meet our needs. The have provided vehicles annually for our fire department Jaws of Life training. The last two years they have also provided several vehicles and the site for this extri- cation training for the Fire Chief��s acade- my. Fire departments from throughout the entire county benefit from this generosity. We appreciate Wayne and his employees for their time, effort, and willingness to grant our requests. These are not skills that can be learned solely in the classroom. We couldn��t do it without these donated vehi- cles. The community benefits from the gen- erosity of Ukiah Auto Dismantlers.

No lab closure planned
To the Editor: As the former interim Health and Human Services Agency Director, I wish to respond to a comment made by Suzanne Bentley in a letter to the Editor Sunday, June 10, 2007. Ms. Bentley references the Board of Supervisors ��proposed closures (County Lab).�� To set the record straight, neither the Health and Human Services Agency or the Board of Supervisors is proposing the closure of the Public Health Lab.

Thank you
To the Editor: The Tenth Annual Phoenix Hospice Garden Tour on Sunday June 3 was a great success thanks to the many gardeners and volunteers. This year the tour included five gardens in Ukiah, five gardens in the Willits area, two gardens east of Willits, and one Willits downtown location. Our appreciation goes to the homeowners and gardeners extraordinaire who graciously opened their gardens to the public to bene- fit our patients at Phoenix Hospice. The Ukiah gardens included Bonnie and Robert Bruce, Laura Fogg, Bruce and Noreen Evans, Barbara Pope, and Paul and Robin Otto. The garden site volunteers act as host and hostess to make sure everything goes smooth at each garden, allowing garden owners to freely visit with the tour partici- pants as well as to visit other gardens on the tour. In Ukiah, our wonderful volunteer coordinators Vicki Bitonti-Brown and Eileen Harmon, found the perfect volun- teers for each site. Our thanks go to Norm and Karen Rosen, John and Linda Houston, Samia Whitmarsh, Sandra Linn, Charlie Hurd, Russ Minor, Reba and George Chavez, Lynn Wood, Patricia Jaspar, Gladys Telshow, Patricia Cornell, and Lynn and Russ Forman for being such gracious hosts and hostesses and good-will ambas- sadors for Phoenix Hospice. Susan Plummer coordinated an exciting entertainment calendar throughout the day. The generous and talented musical groups included Laura and Darren Smith, Chris Gibson, The Freys, Steve Hahn, George Husaruk, Dawn Senften, Kristine Robin, Rudy Luehs and Oscar Calderon, and Will Siegel and Steve Baird. The many different flavors of their music are a testimonial to the diversity of the talent in our communi- ty. The final element in a delightful day was a wide variety of delicious food. Caterer and food connoisseur Jacquie Lee, along with her daughter Jessica Lee, creat- ed a culinary and visual feast. Each garden hosted an international flavor, from main course entr��e to special desserts. Supporting Jacquie in this feat were Kathryn Woskow and several anonymous donors. Thanks also to the Cheesecake Mama, Ukiah Natural Food Coop, Albertsons, Food Maxx, Safeway and Raleys. For assistance with graphics, printing and publicity, we thank Gail Richards- whose articles were very professional and most inviting and who always went the extra mile for us. We thank Angie Herman, Linda Beebee, Sue Ellen Parkinson, Herb Pruett, Elaine Prarat and Printing Plus. Blueprints and Copies of Ukiah donated the printing of the beautiful posters. The Ukiah Daily Journal printed all the articles and photos that Gail submitted. Also, a spe- cial thank you to Al Rosen who created a wonderful three-minute ad for the tour with vocals from Carlin Diamond (thanks!) and was able to give us air time on local Channel 3. Special thanks to Tom Demarchi and Madge Strong who created our colorful flags. Ken Brown, Tom Batley and Sam Fulk went around town early putting up the markers and flags so people would not get lost. Thank you to Mendocino Book Company for selling all those tickets before the event. And a special thank you to Vicki Bitonti-Brown who oversaw the whole Ukiah setting. Because of her great humor and organizational skills the day unfolded so smoothly. And lastly, we wish to thank all of you who attended the garden tour this year. Your support of Phoenix Hospice is greatly appreciated. If you have any suggestions for gardens next year, please give me a call.

WASHINGTON — Friday night lights are lure enough for young foot- ball players, the Supreme Court said Thursday in a decision that upholds limits on high school sports recruiting. The high court ruled in a dispute between a Tennessee athletic associa- tion and a football powerhouse, the private Brentwood Academy near Nashville. The school challenged a rule of the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association, which governs high school sports in the state. The associa- tion bars schools from contacting prospective students about their sports programs. Games have rules, wrote Justice John Paul Stevens in the unanimous decision. ��It is only fair that Brentwood follow them.�� ��Hard-sell tactics directed at middle school students could lead to exploita- tion, distort competition between high school teams and foster an environ- ment in which athletics are prized more highly than academics,�� Stevens wrote. Brentwood argued that the restric- tion violated its free-speech rights, even though it voluntarily joined the association. The dispute arose from a letter that Brentwood��s football coach sent to a dozen eighth-graders in 1997, inviting them to attend spring training at the school. The students already had been accepted and signed enrollment con- tracts for the fall at Brentwood but were not yet attending the school. Brentwood coach Carlton Flatt, who stepped down as coach in December after 34 years, told the boys that equipment would be distributed and ��getting involved as soon as possi- ble would definitely be to your advan- tage.�� He signed the letter, ��Your Coach.�� In Tennessee, as in many other states, high school football is played on Friday nights. Some towns practi- cally shut down as people stream to the game. ��It is a heady thing,�� Stevens said, for an eighth-grader to be contacted directly by a coach and invited to join a high school sports team. He compared the case to one in which the court upheld a state bar association��s limits on solicitations by lawyers. ��The dangers of undue influ- ence that exist when a lawyer chases an ambulance are also present when a high school coach contacts an eighth grader,�� Stevens said. Brentwood Academy headmaster Curt Masters said at a news conference Thursday that school officials were disappointed the court classified Flatt��s letter as a recruitment tool. ��We��re still scratching our heads over why would you do that,�� Masters said. ��Why would you sanction a school for harmless communication about permitted activity when the kids or their parents had already clearly indicated their intent to come in writ- ing?�� Brentwood, like the other 375 or so public and private schools in the asso- ciation, remains free to send brochures, post billboards and adver- tise its sports programs, he said. James Blumstein, a Vanderbilt University professor who had been assisting Brentwood Academy, called it a narrow application of the First Amendment. ��The risk down the road is for school choice, and the court wrote it very narrowly down for this particular circumstance,�� Blumstein said of Brentwood Academy��s letters to the students. The case had previously been before the Supreme Court. In 2001, the court ruled 5-4 in favor of Brentwood, saying the athletic association acted in a quasi-governmental capacity and could be sued. A federal appeals court later ruled in favor of the school, saying the letter amounted to protected speech under the First Amendment. That ruling would prevent all high school associa- tions from enforcing recruiting rules, lawyers for the state athletic associa- tion said. ��Whether it��s vindication, we feel very happy with the ruling because by the ruling, it lets not only Tennessee know but also the high school associa- tions across the nation that we still can enforce our rules,�� said Gene Menees, the Tennessee association��s assistant director. The NCAA, the National School Boards Association and the National Federation of State High School Associations backed the Tennessee athletic association, saying broad pow- ers are needed to protect teens by enforcing strict rules. The Bush administration also supported the association, urging the high court to reverse the lower court decision. Brentwood Academy had support from the National Women��s Law Center, which worried about holding government accountable for gender discrimination. The Association of Christian Schools International and the National Association of Independent Schools also sided with Brentwood. The case is Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Assn. v. Brentwood Academy, 06-427. ——— AP Sports Writer Teresa M. Walker contributed to this report from Nashville.
Supreme Court upholds limits on high school sports recruiting

OAKLAND — The Oakland Athletics designated outfielder Milton Bradley for assignment Thursday, cutting ties with a player who was expected to play an important role on the team this season. Bradley had been on the disabled list three times this year and was frustrated that the team waited two extra days to activate him this week because of uncertainty about third baseman Eric Chavez��s health. Asked Tuesday how he was feeling, Bradley curtly responded, ��I��m healthy and on the bench.�� Bradley was activated from the DL the fol- lowing day and went 0-for-3 with a walk. The A��s have 10 days to trade or release Bradley. Because he has more than three years of major league service time, Bradley can refuse an assignment to the minor leagues. ��It��s an unfortunate situa- tion,�� said Bradley��s agent, Sam Levinson. ��Milton is healthy and looking forward to helping some club win many games this season.�� Phone messages left with A��s general manager Billy Beane and manager Bob Geren were not immediately returned Thursday. The team was traveling to New York to prepare for a three-game weekend series against the Mets. The A��s had a glut in the outfield following Bradley��s return, with Nick Swisher, Mark Kotsay, Travis Buck, Jack Cust and Shannon Stewart all competing for playing time. Chris Snelling and Bobby Kielty are expect- ed to come off the disabled list soon. In another move Thursday, the A��s activated right-hander Rich Harden from the 15-day disabled list and optioned right-hander Shane Komine to Triple-A Sacramento. Harden, who has been out since April 16 with a strained right shoulder, will initially pitch out of the bullpen as he tries to build up strength to eventually return to the rota- tion. Bradley, who is in a con- tract year when players hope to put up some of their best numbers, first was shelved from April 23 to May 10 with a strained left hamstring. He went on the DL a second time May 15-29 when the ham- string flared up again, before being sidelined a third time June 3 with a calf injury. His missed 51 games in all with the injuries and has had five stints on the disabled list in two seasons with Oakland. He was hitting .292 with two homers and seven RBIs in 65 at-bats this season. The A��s were counting on much more out of Bradley, especially he had a strong postseason to cap his first year in Oakland. He hit .276 with 14 homers in 52 RBIs in 96 regular-season games before hitting three homers and dri- ving in seven runs in seven postseason contests. But Bradley has always been known as much for his volatile behavior as his base- ball skills. In 2005, he accused Dodgers teammate Jeff Kent of a lack of leadership and an inability to deal with black players. Bradley was also suspend- ed for the final five games of the 2004 season when he slammed a plastic bottle at the feet of a fan in the box seats in the right field corner at Dodger Stadium after some- one threw it on the field. Nobody was injured. Bradley had two run-ins with police during traffic stops in Ohio, including one that landed him a three-day stay in jai. When he was with the Dodgers, police responded three times to Bradley��s home on domestic violence calls, but he wasn��t arrested or charged. Oakland recalled infielder Kevin Melillo from Sacramento to take Bradley��s place on the roster. Melillo was hitting .267 with seven homers and 40 RBIs for the River Cats. ——— AP Sports Writer Janie McCauley contributed to this report.

Terry Labonte isn��t hedg- ing about retirement, he just wants to help out a friend. The two-time NASCAR champion, who supposedly retired from driving Nextel Cup cars last fall, will get back behind the wheel long enough to run the two Cup road races this season for Michael Waltrip Racing, begin- ning with this S u n d a y �� s Toyota/Save Mart 350 at I n f i n e o n Raceway in Sonoma, Calif. This has been a tough season for Waltrip, who started his new three-car program as one of the flagship teams for Cup newcomer Toyota. There have been cheating scandals, off- the-track embarrassments and, perhaps worst, Waltrip him- self has qualified for only three of 15 races in 2007. Dale Jarrett and David Reutimann, his teammates and employees, haven��t done much better. Jarrett used up his six allowable provisional starts as a former series champion early in the year, but Labonte, making his first start since last November at Texas, is assured of a starting spot in Sunday��s race thanks to his status as a former champ. ��Michael and I had a long talk the other day and I just decided that I would be up to running the road courses for him to see if I can help him out,�� Labonte said. Has the former NASCAR Iron Man — he ran 655 of his 848 Cup starts consecutively — had a change of heart about racing at age 50? ��It��s kind of funny; some days when I watch a race, I kind of wish I was there and there are some days I am glad I am sitting at home,�� Labonte said. ��I think when you have done something as long as I have, you still enjoy doing it. ��I still like the sport. But then there are other days where I am completely happy doing something else. The decision for me to run at Infineon and Watkins Glen is a good decision for me. ��It is so hard to start a new team these days,�� he added. ��I know Michael has a long way to go with where he wants to be, so I hope that I can help him out at these couple of events. I��ll give him my honest opinion and, if I see something that I think I can help, I will certain- ly lend the NAPA team my support.�� Waltrip is grateful for the help. ��I like to think of myself as a good road racer, too,�� Waltrip said. ��But this is the perfect opportunity for me to sort of step back and look at what is going on, try to help my boys get better, try to make my NAPA Camrys faster, listen to Terry��s input, listen to how he works with the guys and what he sees. He��s a champion racer.�� Labonte has six top-five finishes and eight top-10s in 18 starts at Infineon, where he started 37th and finished third last year. But this will be Labonte��s first time driving NASCAR��s new Car of Tomorrow, which makes its road racing debut this week. ��I��ve always enjoyed going out to Infineon, and it��s a lot of fun to drive,�� Labonte said. ��It is not an easy track by any means. And I��m sure it will be different this year with driving the Car of Tomorrow. I don��t think anyone knows what to expect, so it should be inter- esting and a lot of fun.�� Labonte did get a little warmup two weeks ago when he briefly tested a Busch Series car on the road course in Montreal, where that series will race for the first time in August. ��It was fun,�� he said. ��I��ve gotten in my son��s dirt car a couple of times, but it was good to get back into one of these types of cars. It was fun to run a few laps on the road course in Montreal. I am look- ing forward to Infineon.�� ——— HE��S BACK: Boris Said will be back in his element this weekend, racing on the road course at Infineon Raceway. Said is considered an ace on the circuits with both right and left turns and, for several years, was hired by NASCAR teams for road races as one of the ringers who always show up at the two Cup road races. He has broadened his hori- zons the past few years, dri- ving on some of the NASCAR ovals as well, but road racing is Said��s bread and butter. He finished ninth at the Sonoma track last year.
Labonte comes back to ��help a friend��

ARLINGTON, Texas — Sitting home in the Dominican Republic last summer without a place to play, Sammy Sosa knew he was too close to an elite mark not to come back. Still, since being given that chance by his original team, Sosa has insisted he wanted more than the dozen home runs he need- ed to reach 600. He even mentioned 700 after rejoining the Texas Rangers this spring. Now that Sosa is the fifth member of the 600- homer club after finally reaching the milestone Wednesday night against the Chicago Cubs, how many more can he hit? ��Definitely, I think it��s going to be more easy (now). I don��t have to go out there and try to hit two home runs in one at-bat,�� Sosa said, without giving a specific goal. ��Now I can go out there and stick with the same game plan that I have and focus.�� No. 600 was only the second homer in 22 games for Sosa, who wasn��t in the lineup for the series finale against the Cubs on Thursday afternoon — the 18th anniversary of his first career homer for the Rangers off Roger Clemens at Fenway Park in Boston. The slugger said his latest homer ensures him a spot in Cooperstown. ��When I had 588 home runs there were doubts, but with 600 I believe there aren��t any more for the Hall of Fame,�� Sosa told a Dominican radio station Thursday. At 38 years, 220 days, Sosa was older than Hank Aaron, Barry Bonds, Babe Ruth and Willie Mays when they hit their 600th homers. But only Ruth��s 2,044 games to reach the mark were fewer than Sosa��s 2,302. ��As long as he��s productive, he can keep on playing,�� said Cubs first baseman Derrek Lee, one of his for- mer teammates. ��He��s not the Sammy Sosa of 10 years ago, six, eight years ago. But he��s productive. He��s got the homers and RBIs. Any team would take that. If he can do that, he can play, simple as that.�� How many homers he hits obvi- ously depends on how long he gets to play. After Sosa��s year out of the game, general manager Jon Daniels signed him to a one-year minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. ��It just depends on JD, how many years he��s going to sign me,�� Sosa said with a smile and a glance toward Daniels. ��Definitely, Texas is the team that gave me the opportunity. I fit perfect here, I��m happy here. On top of that, I��m doing my job.�� While Sosa is hitting only .242 in his 62 games, he started Thursday seventh in the American League with 53 RBIs — already eight more than he had in 102 games for Baltimore in 2005. Sosa��s induction into the 600-homer club took considerably longer than most would have thought when he was playing his last game for the Cubs in 2004 and was only 26 homers shy. But there was that miserable year with the Orioles, when he testified before Congress about possible steroid use in baseball during spring training then hit .221 with 14 homers. ��I think that year off kind of allowed him to clear his head,�� said Jerry Hairston, whose locker is by Sosa��s in the Texas clubhouse. ��You really realize how great a player he still is and why he was so great in his heyday. His mind is so strong.�� Sosa is the only player with three 60-homer seasons. He hit .308 with a career-high 66 homers and 158 RBIs in his 1998 NL MVP season for Chicago, the year Mark McGwire became the first major leaguer to hit 70. Sosa hit 545 of his homers and was a seven-time All-Star for the Cubs from 1992-2004. ��Look at the incredible season he had in ��98, followed by a few more. This is just a culmination of tons of great seasons,�� Rangers shortstop Michael Young said. ��Sammy came back and has had a really, really great first half. ... I don��t see any reason why he��d stop now.�� Texas originally signed Sosa as a 16-year-old free agent in 1985, and he was still a lanky kid when he hit his first homer. Sosa played only 25 games for Texas in 1989 before being traded to the Chicago White Sox and later to the Cubs. Like McGwire and Bonds, Sosa has been dogged by allegations of steroid use. Sosa also was caught with a corked bat in front of his home crowd when he played for the Cubs in 2003. Sosa has never been penalized for a positive steroids test, however, and was not involved in the BALCO scandal that has dogged Bonds, who is only seven homers shy of match- ing Aaron��s record mark of 755. Before this week, Sosa had never faced the Cubs. Now he has homered against every major league team in a record 45 different stadiums. The Rangers have used Sosa as the designated hitter for 43 of his 59 starts. Manager Ron Washington has made sure to give him breaks, taking advantage of Thursday��s day game with the milestone out of the way. ��It gets rougher and rougher. It really does. It��s not easy. The DH is a big help,�� Cubs manager Lou Piniella said. ��It��s like a 70-year-old guy pulling his golf clubs behind him on an uphill course. He��s feeling it after the round.�� But Slammin�� Sammy is still swinging for more.
Finally with 600 homers, Ranger��s Sosa looking for more

This is exactly the kind of encouragement parents holding sec- ond mortgages to pay for trainers and summer camps do NOT need: For the second year running, Southern California basketball coach Tim Floyd offered a scholar- ship to an eighth-grader. ��Hmmm,�� Louisville coach Rick Pitino mulled over the news. ��I��m not good enough to evaluate that far ahead. Someday, I might wish I was.�� The kid��s name is Ryan Boatright, he��s 14, 5-foot-10 and from Illinois, and still not sure which Aurora high school, East or West, he wants to attend. But he won��t have that problem with col- lege. Ryan left Floyd��s basketball summer camp at USC last weekend with a promise to return in 2011. It may or may not be part of a trend. Floyd is barred by NCAA rules from discussing specific recruits, but he said Thursday, ��I don��t want this portrayed as if we��re hovering over some eighth-grader by himself. Families are involved and they view the opportunity for a $188,000 scholarship as something important to them.�� And indeed, Mike Boatright, Ryan��s father, said about the offer, ��It shocked me.�� Not long after, however, he told the same interviewer, ��I��m tremen- dously concerned. It could get ugly as far as kids getting jealous. I also don��t want it to get to his head. I want him to stay humble.�� About the only thing the recruit- ing process and real life have left in common is this: When something sounds too good to be true, it usual- ly is. So before this goes any fur- ther, it��s worth noting that none of what happened — Floyd��s offer of a scholarship, Ryan��s pledge to USC — is binding. Floyd promised he would make good on his offer — ��I will not back out of any commitment that we make.�� he said — even though NCAA rules bar coaches from mak- ing ��official contact�� with a recruit before his junior year of high school. A spokesman for the organization said Thursday that contact between coaches and players at the summer camps was not considered ��offi- cial.�� If that sounds too convenient, at least it still reflects the reality on the ground. NCAA officials know that the kids are no more likely to keep their promises than the coach- es and schools are. One of the pio- neers of the ultra-early commit- ments was a McDonald��s All- American named Taylor King who pledged to UCLA and is now set to go to Duke. ��We have a responsibility to get the best players we can find and know what the competition is doing,�� Floyd said. ��And when they target an eighth-grader ... ��In a perfect world,�� he contin- ued, ��we��d all wait until spring signing date when these kids are high school seniors. But that��s just not the world that we live in in col- lege basketball. Am I supposed to wait until Duke or Kentucky offer, and then it��s OK?�� Similarly, just because Floyd made the same offer last year to then-14-year-old Dwayne Polee Jr., doesn��t mean the 6-6 high school freshman from Westchester, Calif., still isn��t on other schools�� list. Or that Boatright, who was reportedly being chased by DePaul, Indiana and a handful of other schools, will be at USC until he actually signs a national letter of intent. ��Four years is a long time,�� Pitino said, ��and way too often, it just doesn��t work out for either side. ��Unless he��s Greg Oden, where you know he��s going to be that good down the road, I��m not sure what��s in it for the school. For the kid, on the other hand, it could be great — unless the school backs out.�� ——— Jim Litke is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

COMMUNITY DIGEST
By RONALD BLUM AP Baseball Writer
NEW YORK — Jason Giambi will meet with George Mitchell, agreeing right before baseball commissioner Bud Selig��s deadline Thursday to cooperate with the steroids investiga- tor. Giambi, who for the first time pub- licly admitted he had a ��personal his- tory regarding steroids,�� will become the first active player known to speak with the former Senate majority leader. No date was set for their ses- sion. The New York Yankees star announced his decision after he spoke on the phone with Selig. Lawyers for the players�� union and Major League Baseball reached a written agreement that set rules for the meeting. The former American League MVP said he wouldn��t implicate other play- ers and appeared to backtrack on earli- er remarks that the sport owed fans a collective apology for the steroids era. ��I alone am responsible for my actions and I apologize to the commis- sioner, the owners and the players for any suggestion that they were respon- sible for my behavior,�� Giambi said in a statement. Selig said the meeting with Mitchell will take place ��promptly.�� Following remarks by Giambi that seemed to be an admission of steroids use, the com- missioner had threatened discipline if he didn��t talk to Mitchell. Selig again left open the possibility of punishment. ��I will take Mr. Giambi��s level of cooperation into account in determin- ing appropriate further action,�� he said. Giambi��s decision came two weeks after Selig requested the meeting and followed contentious negotiations between management and union lawyers. As late as Thursday morning, it remained unclear to some in the talks whether an agreement would be reached. Selig called Giambi��s cooperation an ��important step forward�� in Mitchell��s efforts to provide a compre- hensive report on the use of perfor- mance-enhancing drugs in baseball. But by pressuring Giambi to testify, Selig may have made other players even more reticent to discuss steroids. Mitchell��s investigation, which began in March 2006, has gone more slowly than he expected, and the for- mer senator declined to comment on the agreement. Giambi said there were boundaries on what he would tell Mitchell. ��I will address my own per- sonal history regarding steroids. I will not discuss in any fashion any other individ- ual,�� Giambi said. Giambi is in the sixth sea- son of a $120 million, seven- year contract with the Yankees. He hasn��t played since May 30 because of a foot injury and it is not known when he will be able to play again. Arn Tellem, Giambi��s agent, described Wednesday��s conversation between his client and Selig as ��open and heartfelt.�� ��The commissioner was extremely persuasive in impressing upon us how important he felt it was that Jason speak with the senator,�� Tellem said. Tellem said Giambi��s decision not to discuss other players ��tracks the approach Jason has always taken throughout: to not point fingers, to not deflect blame, but rather to accept responsibility for his own behavior.�� Giambi testified to a federal grand jury in 2003 that he used steroids dur- ing the 2001-03 seasons and human growth hormone in 2003, the San Francisco Chronicle reported in 2004. He made a general apology before spring training in 2005 but didn��t spec- ify what he was apologizing for. His latest troubles began when he was quoted in USA Today last month discussing steroid use in baseball — during a period when the sport did not penalize most first-time drug offend- ers. ��A direct conversation the commis- sioner impressed upon me the idea that the game of baseball would be best served by such a meeting,�� Giambi said. ��I will continue to do what I think is right and be candid about my past history regarding steroids.�� If Selig disciplines Giambi, there is a good chance it would be overturned by an arbitrator as lacking ��just cause,�� the standard set by baseball��s labor contract. Even though it appeared Giambi had the better legal position, he didn��t want a fight. ��I did not want to put my family through a lengthy legal challenge in support of my position,�� he said. ��In addition, the uncertainty of my playing status could detract from the efforts of our team to win the American League East. My focus at this time needs to be on rehabbing my injury, getting back on the field and contributing to the goals of my team.�� In the USA Today story on May 18, Giambi was quoted as saying: ��I was wrong for doing that stuff. What we should have done a long time ago was stand up — players, ownership, every- body — and said: ��We made a mis- take.�� We should have apologized back then and made sure we had a rule in place and gone forward. ... Steroids and all of that was a part of history. But it was a topic that everybody wanted to avoid. Nobody wanted to talk about it.�� Five days later, he was summoned to baseball headquarters in New York and was interviewed about those state- ments by three management lawyers. ��In the opinion of my representa- tives, (Giambi) was fully cooperative and candid in explaining his personal involvement with performance- enhancing substances,�� Selig said. While Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina said a Giambi-Mitchell meet- ing ��will be interesting,�� Rockies player representative Josh Fogg didn��t think Giambi will provide many breakthroughs. ��He��s been pretty upfront in what he��s said already,�� Fogg said. ��He��s already put it out there everything he��s done, so I don��t think he��s got anything to hide.�� ——— AP Sports Writer Arnie Stapleton in Denver contributed to this report.

Jason Giambi, of the New York Yankees, admits to past steroid use. New father Jeff Gordon will not have to miss this weekend��s Sonoma race after all. His wife, Ingrid, gave birth to a daughter, Ella Sofia Gordon, on Wednesday. That��s great news for the Gordon family and less than great news for his competitors, who will now have to deal with the man who has won a record five races at Infineon Raceway, including the one last sum- mer.

times.�� From the Arlington National Cemetery about the origin of the 21-Gun Salute: ��The tradition of saluting can be traced to the Middle Ages practice of placing oneself in an unarmed position and, therefore, in the power of those being honored. The can- non salute might have originat- ed in the 17th century with the maritime practice of demanding that a defeated enemy expend its ammunition and render itself helpless until reloaded -- a time- consuming operation in that era. ��In the Anglo-Saxon Empire, seven guns was a recognized naval salute, seven being the standard number of weapons on a vessel. Because more gun- powder could be stored on dry land, forts could fire three rounds for every one fired from sea, hence the number 21. With the improvement of naval gun- powder, honors rendered at sea were increased to 21 as well. ��Beginning in our colonial period the United States fired one shot for each state in the Union. This was continued until 1841 when it was reduced to 21 from 26. Although it had been in use for more than 30 years, the 21-gun salute was not formally adopted until Aug. 18, 1875. This was at the suggestion of the British, who proposed a ��Gun for Gun Return�� to their own 21-gun salute.�� Kudos... Destiny Hester is only 8 years old, one of the last two gymnastic students of Gayle Fillman of Aikido Studio. According to her Mom, Amber, Destiny has been going to Gayle for two years and ��she just loves it. Gayle is just so fabulous and is super good with the kids. Destiny and Adam Basner are her last students in gymnastics.�� Gayle has been coaching and teaching 41 years and will con- tinue to instruct in Aikido. By the way, as far as we know, this Hester family is not part of hubby��s clan. Amber continued, ��Destiny had no prior gymnastic experi- ence before Gayle and she can do back handsprings, back flips hip circles on the bar... great tricks. Gayle has Destiny doing moves in gymnastics that for her age, from what I��ve seen, are pretty incredible. Gayle has a way with her that she can teach and explain so that the student completely understands the instructions. She is knowledge- able, competent and I��m very upset that we��re leaving and may not find anyone to teach who is as good as Gayle. She is so caring and has the students best interests at heart.�� Destiny wanted to start com- peting a year ago but Gayle would tell her, ��You are so good and will do so good, but I want you to be number one at compe- tition, and be ready.�� Amber explained, ��She encourages the kids to do their best, but won��t push them before they��re ready.�� Destiny has not competed yet but is getting ready, learning her routines, and Gayle is perfecting and fine tuning them for compe- tition in August. ��We will miss Gayle so much when we move,�� added Amber. ��Gayle has even said, that when we do move, she will go to some of Destiny��s competitions and meet us so that she can still see Destiny. That indicates a genuine love and concern on her part for the student and her fam- ily and we feel the same about Gayle.�� Looking ahead... Ukiah Symphony season tickets are now on sale and what a lineup! The kickoff concert is Aug. 18, 19, 25 and 26 with that Broadway favorite, Rodgers and Hammerstein��s ��The King and I.�� This classic musical, one of the best-loved, will feature a cast of local artists in costume, along with local musical thespi- an Bunny Edwards as Anna. This is a perfect score for a con- cert version and will play at the college big theater. The December concert fea- tures another artist favored by Ukiahans, Roy Bogas, in a per- formance of Tchaikovsky��s Piano Concerto No. 1. Roy was a laureate of the second Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow presenting this concer- to. Concert three, in March, fea- tures Paula Samonte in Jazz and the Symphony, in favorite music by Duke Ellington and others from the Big Band era. You won��t want to miss this. Tying up the season beautifully in May is world renown guitarist Alex DeGrassi in concert. The Symphony web site is: ukiahsymphony.org and a mes- sage phone is: 462-0236. Doubling worth... Plowshares has once again been granted a T.R. Erickson Foundation matching funds grant of $20,000 for their new Community Dining Room Facility building project. The challenge is to ��match�� those funds before June 30. They still need $200,000 to complete the building. To donate, contact Plowshares at PO Box 475, Ukiah, CA 95482, or phone 462-8582. E-mail is: plow- shares@pacific.net and their web site is: www.plowshares- feeds.org. Alzheimers in the news... It seems no matter where one turns, someone is affected (more often tragically than not) by Alzheimer��s or dementia. These debilitating diseases rob us of our loved ones. According to the Alzheimer��s Association, ��Alzheimer‚s dis- ease is a progressive brain disor- der that gradually destroys a person��s memory and ability to learn, reason, make judgments, communicate and carry out daily activities. As Alzheimer��s progresses, individuals may also experience changes in personal- ity and behavior, such as anxi- ety, suspiciousness or agitation, as well as delusions or halluci- nations. ��There are now more than 5 million people in the United States living with Alzheimer‚s disease. This number includes 4.9 million people over the age of 65 and between 200,000 and 500,000 people under age 65 with early-onset Alzheimer��s disease and other dementias.�� There is no cure. In Mendocino County, there is not an abundance of help for those caregivers of people in this category. Several women have joined forces, along with two non-profits, to put on a fund-raiser for caregivers, in hopes of raising a gigantic amount of money to give either to a program already in exis- tence to enhance the help they give to caregivers, or begin a new program. ��Climbing the Mountain... together�� is the title (appropri- ate, don��t you think?) and the event is Saturday, Sept. 8 from 2-6 p.m. at Grace Hudson Museum in the Community Room and the patio outside. The $25 ticket will give attendees the opportunity to hear great musicians, donating their time in 30-minute sets, to entertain: Spencer Brewer, Elena Casanova, Will Siegal and Friends, Jarrod McNoughton (yes, he plans to drive up for this event from Bakersfield, his new job location), Paula Samonte, Melissa Chaty and Danielle Brassfield. Other outstanding musicians are getting lined up to be part of this wonderful event. A fantastic silent auction is part of the fundraising. You won��t want to miss this. There will be a free educa- tional lecture before the event, that morning from 10-11:30 a.m., where hopefully care- givers will be able to attend and learn more about help for them and their loved ones. There will be special items given away that morning. For more information, con- tact any committee member: Julie Barrington, Kathy Gassen in Willits, Rhonda Kyrias, Jeanne Ytterness, Karen Chaty, Candace Horsley, Linda Simon, Lynn Wood or Carole Hester. They all have tickets, as well. Sponsors are: Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and Soroptimist International of Yokayo Sunrise. If you would like to partner with these two non-profits, please contact one of the committee members. Send donations, checks made payable to Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, 75 No. Main Street, No. 116, Willits, CA 95490. Guiding Light... If you��ve ever tried to successfully put together a project involving var- ious government entities, rules and regs, you may be interested in ��Guide To A Successful man- ufactured Home/Land Project�� by Susan Hawley. Sue, you may recall, is the founder of the Community Coalition for Gang Prevention and has led that group to posi- tively impact not only the Ukiah Valley but the entire county. Haven��t you ever thought about writing about an experi- ence that taught you a great many things? Sue said, ��I decid- ed to write this self-help book half way through the process of finishing my first home project. The book is designed to save time and money, but, most importantly, reduce stress. ��At the time, I was a single Mom and looking to move from the city to the country. Since I couldn��t afford to build a home, buying property and putting in a manufactured home was my next choice. By far, I had no idea of all the details that would fly my way and how I would have to educate myself. Many home dealers can provide exper- tise in some areas -- use their knowledge but educate yourself before you start the project. ��At first, I thought, ��how hard could this be? I am a pur- chasing agent by trade. I will just jump onto the Internet and find a book on how to do this.���� Finding none, and figuring out the project ��by trial and error,�� led Sue to write this self- help book, complete with pic- tures, how to: Purchase the right property, buy the manufactured home of your dreams, manage costs and details, interviewing and hiring contractors, maneu- vering through the permits and regulations and finally to coor- dinating the delivery and setup of your home. Successfully completing her first project, after three years of planning Sue went on to her next project, developing a new business: Cradle Springs Pet Resort in Hopland, which she operates with her daughter, Christine. She had a dream and put everything she has into that dream. She explained, ��Cradle Springs Pet Resort is a unique and comforting option in board- ing for pet owners who travel and who want stress free envi- ronment. We provide excellent cage-free, socialized care in a natural, holistic environment for your pet.�� For further information about her book or pet care, contact: Sue Hawley, Owner/Operator, 12111 Pratt Ranch Road, Hopland www.sue@cradle- springspetresort.com or phone 744-1621.

Gardeners in coastal California are in luck. They can grow a tremendous vari- ety of ornamental plants, and can do it with very little water. The key is to know which plants are water thrifty, and which ones are thirsty. Making the right choice from the start creates a garden that requires one-third the amount of water that lawn requires, or less. Since 40 to 50 percent of residential water use is in gar- dens,choosing plants with water use in mind has the potential to significantly reduce usage, individually and regionally. By reducing water use in gardens, gardeners also reduce runoff from over- watering or ��gutter flooding��. Runoff can carry the pollu- tants it contacts, such as pesti- cides, into storm drains and then into creeks and streams. Northern Californians live in a ��Mediterranean climate�� which has cool wet winters and warm dry summers. Because they typically have little if any rain from May to October (the growing season for plants), its necessary to irrigate gardens. In this cli- mate, thirsty plants require about 36 inches of applied irrigation each year. Luckily, most plants, from native flora to plants from other similar climates worldwide, require no more than 12 inches of applied water each year. These ��low water use plants�� can fill any garden niche from cutting garden, to shade tree, to hedgerow. Here are some ways these unthirsty plants can populate gardens: • Deciduous shade trees for yards or streetscapes – Chinese Pistache (Pistachia chinensis) with intense red and orange fall color; Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia) with vibrant late-summer flowers and striking bark; or Maidenhair Tree (Ginkgo biloba) with incomparable yellow fall leaves. • Flowering shrubs – Red-flowering Currant (Ribes sanguineum), one of the most striking California natives with pink to red flower in early spring; summer flower- ing Rockrose (Cistus) from southern Europe; or one of the many Lavenders (Lavandula) which flower from spring through summer. • Cut flowers – Penstemon in red, pink or blue; Yarrow (Achillea) with white, yellow or crimson col- ors; any of the many varieties of Daffodil (Narcissus); deep yellow Coreopsis; and the mid-summer flowering South African bulb Montbretia (Crocrosmia) in orange and red. • Formal hedges – Myrtle (Myrtus communis), a dark green substitute for the more thirsty boxwood; Lavender Cotton (Santolina) for a low gray or dark green fine-textured hedge; and Italian Buckthorn (Rhamnus alaternus) for taller hedges, either sheared or unsheared. • Edible landscapes – any variety of Plum (Prunus) or Persimmon (Diosporus); table or wine varieties of Grape (Vitis); Pomegranate (Punica); Olive (Olea); and the South American shrub Pineapple Guava (Feijoa sell- owiana), with edible flowers and fruit. • Herb gardens – either prostrate or upright Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis); culi- nary Sage (Salvia officinalis); any variety of Thyme (Thymus); and the evergreen European shrub or tree, Sweet Bay (Laurus nobilis). • Wildlife gardens – Butterfly Bush (Buddleja) with striking summer flower; Coyote Bush (Baccharis pilu- laris), a native which hosts numerous beneficial insects; and Pacific Wax Myrtle (Myrica californica) which birds flock to for the tiny waxy berries. The University of California Cooperative Extension has created a listing of the ��water appetite�� of many garden plants -- the Water Use Classification of Landscape Species report. WUCOLS includes a compre- hensive index of landscape plants commonly available in California, and classifies these plants as either High Water Use (needing 36 inches or more of applied water in this climate), Moderate Water Use (needing about 24 inches in this climate), Low Water Use (the 12 inches water appetite plants) or Very Low Water Use (using even less than 12 inches). This classification is carried out for six regions of California. Sonoma and Mendocino Counties are in the North Central Coast, or Region 1. The full WUCOLS report is available at the California Department of Water Resources, Office of Water Use Efficiency��s web s i t e (http://www.owue.water.ca.go v/) and search for WUCOLS. The index of plants begins on page 62 of the report. As low water use plants are introduced into the garden, remember to group them together so they can be watered according to their water appetite. Consider installing efficient drip irriga- tion which most of these plants prefer to conventional spray irrigation. The Russian River Watershed Association (http://www.rrwatershed.org) is an association of eleven cities, counties and special districts in the watershed that are working together on pro- grams for clean water, fish- eries restoration and water- shed enhancement.

Resource Center. The peer support program includes a wide range of ses- sions dedicated to techniques for peer counseling and group facilitation; sessions on ethics; principles of the social reha- bilitation model of mental health recovery; recognizing the potential for suicide and making appropriate referrals; the history of the peer move- ment; experiences of other peer support programs in the state; dealing with stigma; and an overview of diagnostic cat- egories and medications. ��I��ve been working in [the peer support model] for about 30 years,�� said Mary Carley, a trainee. ��The trainings are life changing . . . and very experi- ential. You can��t say enough good, because in just coming there were people in this group who could barely speak, now they��re talking all over the place. . . We all help each other. That��s the point.�� Some of these trainees will go on to staff a telephone ser- vice for people in distress, called the Warm Line. The Warm Line is expressly not a hot line or crisis line, but is instead a place where people in need can speak with those who may share some of their experiences. ��They just need someone to understand them and want to help them,�� said Jennifer O��Neal, a peer support trainee. ��I don��t want to just tell people, ��this is what you need to get better,��. . . it��s what can we do, or what can I do to help you, or what can you do to help yourself. Figure out the options.�� O��Neal says she plans to attend another training in order to qualify to answer the Warm Line. ��I think it��s an important service anywhere,�� O��Neal continued. ��If you feel like you have no one to talk to, and you want an impartial party to talk to, to hear your side of the story, that can help anyone.�� Kevin Murphy, coordinator of A Healing Cooperative, said one thing peer support training emphasizes is the ability of those in distress to recover from mental illness. ��We prefer ��emotional dis- tress�� to ��mental illness,���� said Murphy. ��Mental illness is a stigmatizing term. We envi- sion a world in which mental health recovery is the expecta- tion. We want to approach every person with the expecta- tion that they can, and will, recover.�� According to Murphy, one of the most important aspects of peer support is that it is a community effort. Those in emotional distress learn through the trainees that they are not alone. AHC��s model includes the expectation that participants will connect with two or more staff or volun- teers, which allows the trainees to build a support net- work among their peers. AHC is a client-run project sponsored by the Ukiah United Methodist Church, and serves as a contractor of Mendocino County Mental Health to implement the CARE project in Mendocino County. The bullet passed through the victim��s clothes but did not hit him. It continued out through the front wall of the shop, crossed a 30-foot park- ing lot, and lodged in the wall of a shop occupied by four people, none of whom were injured, according to sheriff��s reports. The two suspects then fled the building and climbed into a late 1990s blue Mercury Cougar, believed to have been occupied by a driver, and fled the scene, according to sher- iff��s reports. The two suspects are want- ed on suspicion of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon. The Sheriff��s Office is ask- ing for the public��s help in this case; anyone with information can contact the Sheriff��s Office Tip-Line at 467-9159.

primarily from the Western hills ridgetop to Hwy. 101 between Orr Springs Road and the south end of the air- port, as well as developed land along State Street nearly as far north as Pomo Lane and as far south as Hwy. 253 -- worries Baldwin. ��Continuing to pursue a change in place of use is the most significant sprawl-induc- ing move by the city since I��ve been here 25 years,�� Baldwin said Wednesday, stating that it would be the first step toward allowing city water to be used for large-scale housing and retail developments proposed at Lover��s Lane and the for- mer Masonite site. The Local Agency Formation Commission must approve annexation of those areas before city water could be used there, however, and before annexation can occur, the city would need to com- plete its Municipal Service Review and have a tax-sharing agreement in place with Mendocino County -- neither of which have happened. Baldwin also took issue with extending the time to put more of the city��s permitted water to beneficial use, saying it would mean that a second Ukiah would have to be built in the valley to reach the full 20 cfs. Councilman John Mc- Cowen pointed out that if the city lost the rights to the water it did not use, someone else could obtain them. ��It��s certainly to the city��s advantage if we are concerned about sprawl, development, (and) loss of agriculture lands...to try and maintain control of whatever water rights we currently have,�� Councilman John McCowen said. ��It doesn��t make any sense at all to walk away from them.�� According to City Attorney David Rapport, an environ- mental report evaluating the impact of the time extension, as well as the change in place of use, must be completed before the petition can be approved.

At 9:40 p.m., Sheriff��s Deputy Jim Wells saw Lucas driving north from Willits on Highway 101. Wells began to follow Lucas�� vehicle and called for backup. Near milepost marker 54, Wells attempted to pull over Lucas, but Lucas continued northbound on Highway 101, traveling at approximately 50 mph and weaving in his lane, according to sheriff��s reports. Deputies continued to fol- low at a distance and, near milepost marker 56, Lucas made a sudden sharp right- turn and collided with the east bank of the highway, causing the vehicle he was driving to overturn. An initial investigation of the scene indicated that Lucas had sustained a single self- inflicted gunshot wound to the head, and he was pronounced dead at the scene. A handgun was found in the car with him. Lucas was wanted for the June 12 robbery of a Wells Fargo bank in Las Vegas. According to reports from the Las Vegas Police Department, Lucas entered the bank and demanded money from a teller. The teller ducked behind a barrier at the same time an armored car guard entered the bank. According to LVPD reports, Lucas allegedly grabbed the guard, shot him twice in the head and then fled the bank. Detectives from the Las Vegas Police Department are expected in Mendocino County soon to process the evidence and conduct a fol- low-up investigation into the incident.

SAN FRANCISCO — Prosecutors plan to file misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter charges against a graduate student who was driving David Halberstam when the Pulitzer Prize-win- ning author was killed in a car crash, the San Mateo County district attorney said Thursday. Kevin Jones, 26, a graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley journalism school, was driving Halberstam to an interview with football legend Y.A. Tittle on April 23 when the fatal accident happened in Menlo Park, south of San Francisco. An investigation showed that Jones made an illegal left turn into the path of a car that had a green light when it smashed into the passenger side of the car, where Halberstam was riding, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. ��We decided to file the charges because the conduct that was involved here involved going through a red light,�� and not a light turning from yellow to red, Wagstaffe said. ��He turned into the oncoming traffic, and that��s why the (other) car crushed the side of the car with Mr. Halberstam.�� Jones was driving a Toyota Camry through a six-lane intersection marked by a left-turn only signal arrow when an Infiniti Q30 driven by a 61-year-old man broadsided his. Based on eyewitness accounts and a reconstruction of the acci- dent, investigators determined that Jones made the turn without the arrow while in a lane intended for traffic heading straight — instead of from either of the two left-turn lanes, Wagstaffe said. The fact that Jones was not in a turn lane was part of the reason the district attorney decided to file a criminal case, Wagstaffe said. An autopsy showed Halberstam, who was wearing a seat belt, died almost instantly when a broken rib punctured his heart, authorities said. Halberstam, 73, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1964 for his coverage of the Vietnam War, a subject he revisited in his 1972 best-selling book, ��The Best and the Brightest.�� He went on to write 14 other best-sellers, including ��The Breaks of the Game,�� ��The Reckoning,�� and ��The Powers That Be�� ��The Coldest Winter,�� an account of a key battle of the Korean War, is to be published posthumously in the fall. Under California law, drivers can be charged with vehicular manslaughter when a passenger dies if it is determined they committed a moving violation that led to the fatality. It can be charged as a felony if gross negligence — for exam- ple, alcohol, drugs or racing — were involved. The misdemeanor charge prosecutors plan to bring against Jones carries a max- imum sentence of a year in county jail, a $1,000 fine or both. Prosecutors also could seek to have Jones�� driver��s license suspended, according to Wagstaffe. Records from the California Department of Motor Vehicles show that Jones had two previous accidents on his record, from March 2005 and March 2006. Neither resulted in a citation. In 1999, while he was a teenager living in Washington state, Jones was convicted of driving under the influence and paid an $862 fine, court records show. ��His prior driving record did play a factor in our deliberations,�� Wagstaffe said. Jones, who took a leave of absence from school after the crash, did not immediately return a call seeking com- ment from The Associated Press. Wagstaffe said he would be charged next week. Jones�� defense lawyer, Laurel Headley, said she was not entirely surprised by the DA��s decision because she had been fol- lowing the investigation. She said she would advise Jones to plead not guilty at his July 11 arraignment. By that time, Headley said she does not expect to have seen any of the evidence on which prose- cutors�� have based the charges. Halberstam, who lived in New York, recruited Jones to chauffeur him to the Tittle interview through the journalism school alumni association. Following the accident, Jones said in an interview that he had jumped at the chance to spend time with the celebrated writer and was grief-stricken over what happened. Halberstam was at work on a new book about the legendary 1958 NFL championship game between the Baltimore Colts and the New York Giants, and Jones said the two were talk- ing about football right before the crash. Headley said Thursday that Jones, who suffered a punctured lung in the accident, ��is still extremely upset�� and struggling to come to terms with Halberstam��s death. ��It��s been an absolutely devastating experience for him,�� Headley said. ��He feels a great loss of a mentor of his, and that��s a big deal to have to deal with.�� Halberstam��s widow, Jean Halberstam, hired a lawyer to explore the possibility of suing whichever driver ulti- mately was found at fault. She was out of the country on Thursday and not avail- able for comment.

Mae Scott, Carla Marie Scott and David Wayne Scott because they occurred in other counties. Additionally, at the time of the deaths of David and Sherry Scott, Miller was a juvenile. The District Attorney��s Offices of San Diego and Los Angeles have been notified of the pending dismissal and are reviewing the evidence in the case to determine if they should file charges, according to reports from the District Attorney��s Office. In the death of Kimberly Scott, the District Attorney��s Office has determined there is insufficient evidence to pro- ceed with prosecution. Kimberly Scott��s death was investigated in 1970 and ruled to be from natural causes. Since then, two forensic pathologists have reviewed the findings in the case and con- cluded different causes of death. At a press conference held by the Mendocino County Sheriff��s Office on Nov. 1 2006, then-Acting Sheriff Kevin Broin said Miller admitted killing her children when she was arrested Oct. 31, 2006. According to reports from the District Attorney��s Office, Miller was suffering from a mental illness at the time of that confession and her state- ments that she drowned three of her children do not match findings of pathologists in those cases. The case will remain open in the event that further infor- mation warrants prosecution. It was not known at press time whether Miller had been released from the Mendocino County Jail, where she has been held since her arrest.

On Tuesday, June 12, twenty-two students from the Mendocino County Alternative Education Program received their Teen CERT Certification from Sherri Steinmann, Teen Cert Instructor and Bill Woodworth Emergency Services Coordinator at the Mendocino County Office of Emergency Services. Mendocino County Office of Education��s Emergency Education Operation Center has spon- sored several Teen Community Emergency Response Teams programs though-out Mendocino County. ��Watching the stu- dents learn and take on lead- ership responsibilities is amazing. They seem to grow up right before your eyes�� stated Sherri Steinmann one of the Teen CERT Instructors. In addition to funds pro- vided by the United States Department of Education Grant project, Teen CERT has been supported by grants from Eastern Michigan University and a $25,000 continuation grant from Allstate Insurance Company Foundation. The program will be available to high schools and other non- profit organizations to sup- port training of teens 13 to 19 and continuation of the program until January 2008. Programs have been initi- ated so far at Mendocino High School, Mendocino County Office of Education Alternative School, Redwood Academy, Point Arena High School, Potter valley High School and another is expected to launch at Ukiah High School this fall. According to Craig Zachlod, Program Director, ��We expect that the project will not only prepare stu- dents to respond to emer- gencies but based on the experience of other pro- grams the training will enhance academic perfor- mance, self concept and confidence, introduce career options, improve communi- cation with adults including parents and prepare teens for community service. Pre and post training sur- veys will be conducted with participants, teachers and their parents to determine the impact of Teen CERT participation on school per- formance and student behavior.�� Students must participate in over 20 hours of instruc- tion so they will be increas- ingly responsible for all phases of the Teen CERT program. As they are trained in the National Incident Management System and Incident Command Systems, each will have a role and responsibility as members of a campus crisis and emer- gency response team. Students will have been involved in the Teen CERT workshops and we expect that teens will plan and con- duct campus recruitment, exercises and drills. Youth will assume important school community leader- ship roles that will enhance self-esteem, preparedness and community service skills. For example on Wednesday, June 6, the Ukiah Valley Fire Department volunteered their time to teach the stu- dents how to extinguish fires and move heavy objects. This very important process in training CERT responders is necessary and the local fire departments have put in many volunteer hours to help us prepare stu- dents as well as adult responders. For more information about the Teen CERT Program, contact the Mendocino County Office of Education Emergency Operations Center at 467- 5025.

Saturday, June 23, 2007 You may be able to start to piece together many bits of information and learning you��ve garnered in the past in order to do something big with it. The more you��ve pre- pared yourself, the larger your yield. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Tasks or assignments you undertake might yield far more outstanding results than you��ve normally been able to achieve. Do not put off until another day what you can do now. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Because your attitude is such that you see the positive side of everything, you��ll create your own good fortune. It��ll be a winning formula for bringing much happiness in your life. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Dame Fortune will be equipped to help you come up with some constructive budget stretchers. She��ll bring you much good luck, but to get it all you��ll have to implement her offerings. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Your excellent leadership qualities will be put into play in several situations that will prove to be quite fortunate for you. One in particular could have to do with a social situa- tion. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Anything that has to do with furthering your financial position is likely to turn out quite well for you, even those situations that may not yield a profit or return until a later date. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23- Dec. 21) -- Your hopeful, pos- itive outlook on things will yield much more than promis- ing expectations. You could benefit in two ways from a personal matter that is very important to you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22- Jan. 19) -- All the nice things you do for others will win you the respect of your friends and family. What��s more admirable is that you��ll do so in ways that do not call atten- tion to yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20- Feb. 19) -- Others will look to you for opinions and thoughts on current happenings. They��ll realize that your opti- mistic outlook will help them to see the promising things they can take advantage of. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Do not be afraid to think in larger terms, especially if you��re involved in some kind of joint effort. It��s a propitious day for expanding benefits from an enterprise that could be large. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your judgment calls are likely to be good ones for two reasons. Your reasoning abili- ties are excellent, but more importantly, a fortunate occur- rence will steer your luck in the right direction. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Rewards for a job well done will be much higher than usual, whether the task involves a personal project or one you are hired to do. The quality of your work will be the catalyst. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A fortunate day may be in the making for you in the romance department. The unattached could meet some- one to like, while those spo- ken for may share some spe- cial moments together. Know where to look for romance and you��ll find it. The Astro-Graph Matchmaker wheel instantly reveals which signs are romantically perfect for you. Mail $2.75 to Matchmaker, c/o this newspa- per, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092-0167.

Dear Annie: I��m 53 years old and married, but the person with whom I have a loving and close relationship is 78 years old and also mar- ried -- to someone else. We love each other and have a unique bond despite our age difference. ��Milton�� was recently diagnosed with pul- monary fibrosis (from years of smoking), and it��s terminal. The doctors say he has six months to two years. I was the first person outside the family he told. However, three days after he informed me, he cut off all contact. I don��t know why. I am heartbroken and devastated that he would end our relationship and not even let us continue as caring friends. His cousin told me Milton is depressed over his condition and needed to break it off. According to him, if Milton were to see me one more time, he wouldn��t be able to leave me at all. What do I do? Should I continue to send my best regards to Milton, or should I leave him alone and hope that, in time, he will speak to me again? I am just sick over this. -- Sad in Massachusetts Dear Sad: We know you are heartbroken, but this is the price you pay for being the Other Woman. Milton is depressed and possibly feels guilty about the double life he has led, a not uncommon occurrence in these circumstances. We hope you will honor his wishes and leave him alone. If he wants to see you, he will let you know. Otherwise, your presence is likely only to cause stress to him and his family. Dear Annie: Several years ago, I began working from home, which allowed me to rekindle a friendship with ��Betty,�� an old high school buddy who was a stay-at-home mom. We talked on the phone, e-mailed, met for lunch, etc. I understood that she had far less to do in a day than I, and tolerated her multiple phone calls to vent about the weather, her hus- band and every other little nuisance. Still, we had a give-and-take friendship. She talked, I listened, and I felt she did the same for me. Recently, Betty re-entered the workforce. When she first began calling at the end of the day to tell me about her job, I was excited for her. But after six months, I really don��t want to hear complaints about her boss, colleagues, pay discrepancies and job responsibilities. Yet that��s all she can talk about. This is worse than listening to household problems. Most of the time, I have no idea what or who she is talking about, and I don��t care. Betty never asks about my work or family. It��s all about her. How can I make her under- stand I��m not a dumping ground for her prob- lems? -- The Listener Dear Listener: Start by telling her, nicely, that you really don��t want to talk about her job and would prefer to discuss something else. If that doesn��t work, cut the conversation short when you��ve had enough by saying, ��Sorry, I have to run. I��ll talk to you later.�� And hang up. Dear Annie: You recently used the term ��beck and call.�� I��ve heard this expression all my life and I think everyone is getting it wrong in written form. Here��s my crackpot theory (I have a lot of those): The correct expression should be ��beckon call.�� You call me to you, by beckon- ing, and I will rush to your service. That makes sense. But ��beck and call��? Seriously, I don��t think ��beck�� is even a word. This may not rank with the great toilet paper debate, but it��s one of those niggling lit- tle language things that drive me nuts. -- Daniel Dear Daniel: You��re not too far off. ��Beck�� is actually a shortened form of ��beckon.�� But the term is indeed ��beck and call,�� and the word ��beck�� means a silent gesture such as a nod or wave. The phrase dates to the late 19th century. We hope you are feeling calmer now.
