"In theory I don't think the ordinance is a bad idea, but it has to have a financial component," said David Youssoupoff, program manager for the Coast Community Center in Fort Bragg. Youpousoff said he has seen the effects of Ukiah's anti-camping ordinance across the county. At the Ukiah Community Center, Youssoupoff said they have seen the number of people seeking aid increase by 25 percent since the ordinance passed, overwhelming the center financially. "We don't have the money to take on more clients," Youssoupoff said. A county study estimated there are approximately 1,900 homeless people in the county at any one time. By contrast there are only 92 shelter beds in the county, Youssoupoff said. There are an additional 50 transitional housing beds but the waiting period can be as long as six months. "If we go to all the homeless people and tell them to get off the

Man found dead near Parducci Road

By BEN BROWN The Daily Journal

A man found dead on the shoulder of North State Street was the victim of a hit and run. According to the California Highway Patrol, Richard W. Swafford, 38, of Ukiah, was walking in an unknown direction on North State Street, north of Parducci Road, when he was struck and killed by an unidentified vehicle traveling southbound on North State Street. The unidentified driver fled the scene after striking Swafford.

Swafford was thrown approximately 10 feet up onto the shoulder and appears to have died immediately of his injuries. Swafford's body was discovered a 9:49 a.m. Saturday by a group of children on bicycles. A small shrine composed of wildflowers has been erected on the spot Swafford's body was found. CHP spokesman Robert Simas said they do not have any suspects at this time and does not know the make or model of car the suspect is driving. The case is still under investigation and anyone with information is encouraged to contact CHP. Ben Brown can be reached at [email protected]

Ukiah High School senior Lauren Bishop (right) and sophomore Elena Jordan, members of the Ukiah Chapter of the Youth Board on Obesity Prevention, post flyers advertising the drop in prices of Cliff and Luna bars at the UHS vending machines on Monday.

Healthier just got cheaper

By LAURA CLARK The Daily Journal

Healthier options in Ukiah High School's vending machines will soon be more affordable. Thanks to the efforts of UHS senior Lauren Bishop and her new found support group -- Ukiah High sophomore Elena Jordan, and alternative education student James Hoffman, also a sophomore, as well as adult coordinator Sherri Steinmann -- the cost of both Luna and Cliff bars will be cut in half (almost) May 1, when they will go from $1.75 to $1. Luna bars, Cliff bars and fruit leather (which costs 50 cents) were incorporated into the high school vending machines last year after Bishop, then the only local representative of the Statewide Youth Board on Obesity Prevention, held a taste test to see what students would and would not eat. Meanwhile, Bishop went from a team of one to a team of four, and the SYBOP received funding from the California Endowment and Kaiser Permanente, making

Rebecca Huston, the 32year-old Washington woman who claimed to have been kidnapped at gunpoint, forced to drive to Ukiah and ordered into a dumpster, admitted to making the story up in a statement to Kennewick police investigators Friday. In the statement, Huston said she drove to Ukiah of her own free will, parked her car in front of the Albertson's in the Pear Tree Shopping Center, and climbed into the dumpster. While she was in the dumpster she was picked up by a garbage truck and transported to Ukiah Solid Waste

Management. Huston told detectives she made up the story about the abduction because she was embarrassed. "The allegations that she was kidnapped were false," said Mendocino County Acting-Sheriff Kevin Broin Monday. The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office has been working on the case with the Kennewick Police Department since Huston turned up in a pile of garbage at the Ukiah Solid Waste Management transfer station on Plant Road on April 18. Huston told Sheriff's deputies that she had been abducted from the intersection of Clearwater and Edison in Richland, Wash. at gunpoint by a man in a black ski-mask. The man, she said, forced her to drive the 710 miles from

Bush: massive deportation not realistic

IRVINE, Calif. (AP) -- President Bush, rebutting lawmakers advocating a law-and-order approach to immigration, said Monday that those who are calling for massive deportation of the estimated 11 million foreigners living illegally in the United States are not being realistic. "Massive deportation of the people here is not going to work," Bush said as a Congress divided over immigration returned from a two-week recess. "It's just not going to work." In addition to speaking here, Bush was meeting Tuesday with a bipartisan group of senators at the White House to press his case. Bush spoke in support of a stalled Senate bill that includes provisions that would allow for eventual citizenship to some of the illegal immigrants already here. Some conservatives say that would amount to amnesty. "This is one of the really important questions Congress is going to have to deal with," Bush said. The president said he thought the Senate "had an interesting approach by saying that if you'd been here for five years or less, you're treated one way, and five years or more, you're treated another."

Car bombs kill 10, wound nearly 80

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- A string of car bombs rocked Baghdad on Monday, killing 10 people and wounding nearly 80 in an apparent campaign to discredit Iraq's new leadership. At least 15 people were killed in other bombings and shootings. Police also discovered the bodies of 28 people in the capital and the northern city of Mosul. They included 15 police recruits from Ramadi who were kidnapped Sunday and slain by insurgents, police said.The seven car bombs exploded over a five-hour period in six widely separated neighborhoods across the capital. The first blast occurred near the Health Ministry and killed five people, Lt. Col. Faleh alMohammedawi said. Two hours later, bombs hidden in two cars exploded near Mustansiriya University, killing five others, including a 10-year-old boy, al-Mohammedawi said. Blasts also occurred in central Baghdad, the Karradah district, Mansour and the New Baghdad area in the east of the capital. Al-Mohammedawi put the total number of wounded at nearly 80, most of them in the two fatal bombings.

ASK DR. GOTT

By Peter H. Gott, MD

Supporting pregnancy and easing delivery

By ROSS LAKE Special for the Journal

More info needed from doctors

DEAR DR. GOTT: Last month, I passed out at home and ended up in the intensive-care unit for two days. Primary diagnosis: syncope and hyponatremia. I believe this means fainting, dizziness and low electrolytes. I don't understand what all this means, why it happened, and how to prevent it from happening again. I've asked three doctors and don't seem to get an answer to my questions. I've enclosed my reports from my hospital stay; if you could help me understand what happened and why, I'd appreciate it. I worry about this every day. Thank you for your help. I'm 63 years old. DEAR READER: You have analyzed your problem quite correctly: faintness secondary to low electrolytes. The issue, as I see it, is why were your electrolytes low? The term electrolytes refers to many substances, including sodium, potassium and other minerals, that are vital for normal metabolism. If a person is deficient in one or more, the heart rate can be affected, leading to lightheadedness and other symptoms. Electrolyte depletion is a well-recognized consequence of chronic therapy with diuretic (water-eliminating) drugs. In addition to my concern about why your electrolytes dropped, I am uncomfortable about your doctors' failure to explain why this imbalance occurred and what can be done to prevent future problems. As a patient, you are entitled to an understandable explanation of what happened and why, even though the answer to such questions may be "I don't know." This should be followed rapidly by, "But I will refer you to a specialist to find out." In reviewing the lab work you supplied, I was struck by the fact that you had not only a low potassium level (3.4) but a low sodium level (119) as well. While you're awaiting a follow-up appointment with your primary care physician, consider drinking one V8 juice cocktail a day unless you are already receiving prescription electrolyte supplements. Insist on a review of your health issues and let me know how this turns out. DEAR DR. GOTT: About two years ago, my aunt, who is 70 years old, developed heart problems. A stent was inserted, and she was placed on Zocor, aspirin, hydrochlorothiazide and atenolol. She will be adding Zetia to her daily regimen shortly. Since all of this started, my aunt has suffered nonstop itching all over her body. She has talked to her doctor, and he prescribed Allegra, which only made her feel drugged. Now the doctor is thinking this may be psychosomatic. Can you think of anything that may be causing the itching? She isn't getting much sleep. DEAR READER: Until disproved by allergy testing, your aunt may be suffering a reaction to one of her medications. In my view, psychological causes are at the bottom of the list. Were I her physician, I'd request an immediate consultation with an allergist.

Pregnancy is a time of wonder and awe. The life growing inside the womb brings excitement and anticipation to expecting families. Parents come together in preparation for the coming changes. Pregnancy also brings physical challenges to expecting mothers. For better and sometimes for worse, hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy can alter the function of nearly every system in the body: the circulatory system increases blood flow to the womb almost immediately; the digestive system may bring morning sickness; the muscles and tendons change to accommodate the growing belly. These changes put strain on a pregnant woman, sometimes making pregnancy very uncomfortable. One of the most common problems associated with pregnancy in the first trimester is hyperemesis gravidarum, commonly called "morning sickness". For some women, it effects them only in the morning before they have eaten, hence the name morning sickness, but it may occur any time of day. But for some women, they are nauseous for their entire term. In such cases, getting adequate nutrition is threatened, and sometimes intravenous nutrition becomes necessary. Chinese medicine offers very effective treatment for this problem. During pregnancy, the energy of the reproductive system shifts from the menstrual flow downward to upward holding and lifting. A concurrent effect of this upward energy is called "Rebellious Stomach Qi" (morning sickness). Acupuncture at the "Inner Gate" point, and Chinese herbal formulas, including herbs such as ginger, bamboo and citrus peel, can quiet this rebellious qi, sometimes immediately, reducing and eliminating the morning sickness. Another common first trimester problem is threatened miscarriage. Statistically, one out of three first-time pregnancies ends in miscarriage. But for some women, miscarriage is a common recurrent problem. There is no clear way to predict if a pregnancy is strong or not. If you had menstrual problems or difficulty getting pregnant, it is advised that you

Essential human touch

The story goes that an emperor wanted to understand child development, so he decided to try an experiment. Several infants were placed in a special room with instructions to the care givers to feed, change their diapers, and to keep them warm but no other contact. The infants did not survive the experiment. Human touch is basic to infant and human well being. Survival and definite health benefits are realized all though life. In the recent years, an increase in infant massage therapy has emerged, According to Andrew Weil, M.D. skin is our largest and perhaps our most sensitive organ, it provides us with ample opportunity to reap the benefits of touch. Studies on touch suggest it may reduce stress, ease arthritic pain, increase air flow in asthmatics, and improve immune function. Other research shows that babies, who receive little physical affection, develop abnormally. In a touch deprived culture like ours, people of all ages need to find ways to touch and be touched. Touching is an easy connection to make because it feels so good. I hug my friends and urge other people to become comfortable doing so. Tools like hand held massagers can't replicate human interaction, so give a massage

or get one, dance with a partner, and create social connections that are physically emotionally meaningful. Many benefits of touch are attributed to a reduction in cortisol, a stress hormone produced by the adrenal gland. Scientist have also observed changes in heart rate and blood pressure after touching certain points in the body, and noted changes in brain chemicals though to affect stress and pain. Although studies have focused on touch therapy rather than everyday touch, the science likely appeals to both. In recent studies, massage at moderate pressure was effective at lowering cortisol

Volunteer says no sale should have taken place

To the Editor: As one of the volunteers who spent countless hours on and off my job procuring donations and supplies for the horses, as well as being in constant contact with the core volunteers caring for the horses, I feel I must respond to the Ukiah Daily Journal's April 19 and 20 articles on the horses and to offer our perspective. First, it was noted that Denoyer's brother-in-law showed up in a cattle truck. That is not exactly true. One has the image of one of those big double decker cattle trucks that roll up and down our highway. What the man actually had was a stock trailer. While it is common to haul horses in stock trailers, as most ranchers do, we all thought it odd the he was hauling eight (including one stallion and a weanling). Yes, he needed mats and got them. ll of the volunteers there when he arrived had misgivings about this man getting those horses. Many asked him directly if he was connected to Denoyer. He said no! Most of the volunteers had red flags go up the minute the sale was complete and the bids were known. We immediately jumped on the county with our concerns. We were told there was nothing we could do. There was nothing in his application to justify denying it. Just knowing the vet had concerns should have been enough. It could have been delayed long enough to for 24 hours to check on conditions. Why not on this one? The information that came to light Monday took me less than an hour on the Internet to find. Second, Carol Morhorst stated in today's (20th) paper that the county did not rush into this because of money, but because of the volunteers. That is not true! We were all in it for as long as it took to get these horses into good lifelong homes. They had come back from the brink in a very bad situation to become robust and healthy horses. We didn't want there to be even the remotest chance they would ever be in this situation again. The volunteers did not want a sale to happen to these horses. They wanted an adoption program instituted similar to Lake County's. It would have brought in less money, but they would have been in a better place. We expressed those ideason several occassions. The County Counsel said that was impossible. That our county codes call for a sale. So be it. The problem was the sale was rushed. Time was not taken to consider all possible problems and outcomes. Now, they are having to deal with a very big problem because of their haste. Third, it has been very frustrating dealing as volunteers in this situation because the county knew nothing about caring for horses. And probably because of that, every time we turned around we were being asked to do things, organize things or get things that were needed. We were doing the county's job so often I felt all of us should have been on the payroll. In many cases the county passed on the responsibilities, that it should have taken care of, to us. I realize this has been a real learning experience for all of us, and is my hope that all county agencies involved will learn from this and ensure it never happens again. I hope our Supervisors are well versed on this situation because your constiuents are going to be demanding answers as to why this happened. Roni McFadden Willits

The perfect chance for pay as you go

It was a personal defeat for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger when Republican state legislators refused to allow a variable of his proposed $68 billion to $70 billion in new construction and repair bonds onto the June primary election ballot. Schwarzenegger immediately "guaranteed" the bonds would return, using language similarly to his movie character who boasted that "I'll be back." But bonds are nothing like Terminators. They don't necessarily deserve an opportunity for another chance when a better alternative awaits, lacking only political will to become reality. That alternative is "pay-as-you-go," the way most households operate when considering things like roof repairs or expanding a patio, roughly analogous on a micro scale to the gigantic levee, highway, school, jail and other repairs and construction envisioned by Schwarzenegger. There's compelling math for pay-as-you-go. There's also plenty of political reason to adopt that approach, even if the governor's supposed adversaries among Democratic lawmakers have not yet seen it that way. Politically, if Democrats like Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez of East Los Angeles and state Senate President Don Perata of Oakland okay bonds to finance the repairs and improvements virtually all Californians agree are needed, they will be providing Schwarzenegger precisely the platform he wants to run on in his reelection drive this fall. Even if, as Nunez aide Steve Maviglio insists, the bonds "would have many things in them that are great for Democrats - school construction and repair, flood control and plenty of traffic and transit improvement" - they would quickly become Schwarzenegger's bonds, just as when he took over a business-inspired ballot initiative aiming to clamp down on labor union political spending in last fall's special election. The idea wasn't his, but you'd never have known that by listening to him. In the strange choreography of Sacramento, Nunez and his Democratic compadres insist they want bonds voted on this November because "they are good for California." Nobody can be quite sure they'd be saying this or voting for the bonds if legislative Republicans weren't so dead set against them. The truth is fiscally sane Californians should also be highly skeptical of a big new bond issue. For one thing, it would cost the state about $130 billion over the next 30 years to pay back $70 billion in bonds - an average of just over $4 billion per year. If legislators and the governor passed a law guaranteeing that same $4 billion a year for the same type of rebuilding and new construction, the $4 billion per year would only be paid out for about 17 years. Any such pay-as-you-go plan, of course, could stipulate that if state revenues fail to reach a baseline level in any given year, the spending need not occur. This is an idea first advanced by Bill Leonard, a former Republican lawmaker now on the tax-collecting state Board of Equalization. Leonard also noted that construction could occur much more quickly under pay-as-you-go, because the state would neither have to wait for an election to okay spending nor go through the time-consuming exercise of selling bonds. Using bond money to fix the problematic levees of the Sacramento-San Joaquin river delta would mean waiting at least until next summer to get started, setting up another year of flood risks that Schwarzenegger maintains are more severe than those in pre-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans. Using pay-as-you-go, reconstruction could begin almost immediately. And where would the $4 billion per year come from? This year, it could come from the approximately $6 billion in unexpected revenue the state has taken in. Some lawmakers prefer to hold onto most of that money just in case tax receipts don't run as high next year. But a the possibility of a flood in the Delta poses far more financial risk than using money already in hand to fix the problems. And once politicians have seen how nice it is to approve projects without needing to ask voter approval, maybe the pay-as-you-go idea will really catch on.

Urgent problems to tackle in absence of reform plans

Looking at the priorities set by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Legislature, you'd never guess California has a health care crisis. Health insurance premiums have risen in the past five years, and more Californians have no health insurance at all. But bills that attempt to address this crisis in a comprehensive way have no chance of becoming law this year, and nobody is seriously trying to broker a compromise plan that could gain broad support. Maybe next year. In the meantime, California could make progress helping to clear the way for major health care reform. The single most important step is Sen. Martha Escutia's SB 437. It would provide comprehensive health coverage to California's 1 million uninsured children - many of whose parents are working several jobs. During the governor's 2003 campaign, he said: "I think it is important that we take care of our children. And we have to make sure that every child in California is insured. That is the most important thing." He was right. Yet last October, he vetoed the California Healthy Kids Program. He said it did not have a funding source - but that's in part because he also vetoed companion legislation that would have emulated Santa Clara County's model program, seeking private donations and matching funds from the federal government. This year, Schwarzenegger must work with the Legislature to provide children's health insurance. It will save California money in the long run - not only by preventing expensive emergency-room visits but also by helping kids succeed in school and removing a terrible source of stress from hardworking parents. Iraq war, have come forward to blast Rumsfeld for "arrogance," micromanagement, "throwing away 10 years worth of planning," and failing "to build the peace" in Iraq. Add to that damning list the failure to deploy enough troops to secure Iraq following the invasion, the disgrace of Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo and the current chaos in Iraq - which has yet to form a government four months after the ... elections - and it's hard to make the case in favor of Rumsfeld. ... There is a great deal that getting rid of the defense secretary would not accomplish. It would not stabilize Iraq, or, for that matter, Afghanistan, which is becoming increasingly vulnerable to incursions from the Taliban and al-Qaida. It would not help Iraqis form a government. It cannot, sadly, reverse the tactical and strategic errors that have been made at Rumsfeld's behest. What bringing in a new defense secretary might do, however, is begin rebuilding trust between the administration and an American public that polls show has seriously lost faith with the White House's performance in Iraq. It would be an acknowledgment that inexcusable mistakes have been made - not simply the errors inherent to the chaos of war - and that the administration has given serious thought to correcting them. ...

On calls for firing Sec. of defense Donald Rumsfeld

It's about time President Bush paid heed to the wisdom of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. To paraphrase Rumsfeld's very own words - about the looting that followed the fall of Baghdad - it's true that free people are free to make mistakes and do bad things, and it's true that war is untidy, but when you're in charge of a couple of wars and you make too many mistakes, stuff happens. Getting fired, for instance. This is a suggestion being made with growing frequency by a group generally not known for breaking ranks, particularly during times of war. Six retired generals, all of them involved with the

As if hot flashes and mood swings aren't enough! Perimenopause -- the time in life when your reproductive cycle is (finally!) going the way of the horse and buggy -is often marked by wakefulness. Just when you want some shut-eye, you find yourself staring at the clock, wondering how you're going to make it through tomorrow. If it's any comfort, many other women are wide-awake too. However, for those who have a busy daytime schedule, a few hours of lost sleep can really cause trouble. Join the club. Over 60 percent of perimenopausal women report they suffer from the symptoms of insomnia. Snoring becomes more common and heavier. (Gracious!) Sleep apnea (a dangerous condition characterized by long interruptions in the normal breathing pattern) is a sign that a more serious sleeping disorder is developing. Chill, Jill! Tips for getting a good night's sleep · Eat a healthy diet. Avoid large meals, especially before bedtime. Maintain a regular, normal weight. · Exercise regularly, but not in the hours leading up to bedtime. · Avoid nicotine, caffeine and alcohol, especially in the evening. · Dress in lightweight nightclothes; it's good way to keep your cool. Hot flashes frequently accompany sleeplessness. For the same reason, keep your bedroom temperature low. Try running a small fan for some comforting "white noise." · Try some stress-reducing techniques. If you have a real problem in your life, set aside time during the day to focus on it. Leave your cares outside your bedroom -- and don't worry, they'll still be there when the sun shines. Really

give yourself a break. Meditation is another useful technique and there are many good books on the subject. · Make up your own relaxing before-bed a ritual. Make it a habit so that you train your body to expect sleep. About an hour before you turn out the light, shut off the computer or the TV. Take a hot bath; add some fragrant bath salts. Read. Do something soothing; give yourself a manicure, organize your sock drawer or family photos, make a list of everything that's on your mind -- and then put it away for tomorrow. Get yourself ready for sleep. · Skip taking sleeping pills except under a doctor-prescribed regimen. Over-used, you can become dependent on them, actually worsening your condition. · If you wake in the night, don't stare at the clock. It will just increase your anxiety, a common side effect of menopausal insomnia. Let the worries go with a good book and a soothing cup of herbal tea. · If you've had a bad night, try to find time for a 20minute catnap. It can reenergize your day. Avoid taking long naps because you run the risk that poor nighttime sleep will become a pattern. · It could be that your symptoms are so bothersome that you want to bring out the "big guns." If so, hormone replacement therapy (HRT)

may be the right alternative for you. Talk over all the options with your healthcare provider. · Remember: Not all sleeping problems are benign. Sleep apnea can be quite serious. The breathing lapses of sleep apnea have detrimental results on your body's chemistry. They decrease oxygen and increase carbon dioxide in the blood. The stress effects on your body can lead to hypertension, stroke and heart attack. The main symptom of sleep apnea is excessive daytime sleepiness. Often, your partner will be the first to notice that your snoring has gotten much louder or that you are gasping for air as you sleep. Hopefully, they'll mention it. If they do, it is time to see your doctor. Lastly, the next time you wake up at 2 am, take a minute to appreciate that you are not alone; thousands of other women are wide-awake, too. It may surprise you, but some women even come to enjoy their nightly periods of wakefulness. If you feel calm and restful, you may find the nightly solitude becomes a welcome time to catch up on your reading. If you don't find it worrisome, then don't worry about it. Get up; grab your book and a blanket and head to the couch. By the time menopause is over, you'll probably find you're back to your normal sleep patterns. You can celebrate with a warm glass of milk. life-changing experience of birth. If you or someone you know is trying to conceive and having some difficulty, I will be giving a talk and demonstration on Fertility Enhancement on Tuesday, May 2, at 7 p.m. at Full Circle Wellness Center, 530 S. Main St. in Ukiah. There is a suggested $5 donation at the door. For more information, please call 462-4448.

levels while light pressure showed no effect. This may explain why people prefer a firm handshake, says Tiffany Field, M.D., lead researcher and director of the touch institute at the University Of Miami School Of Medicine. The research was looking for the mechanism behind the reaction to touch, the outcome revealed that touch had a positive affect on the immune system. Giving touch can be more beneficial than getting it. A study found that the psychological effects of a massage were greater when volunteer grandparents gave a massage

to an infant, then when they received one. Other studies involving parents of children with chronic conditions, found that the parents reduced their own stress levels by giving their children massages. Abusive touching brings on the adverse affects fear, withdrawal, and often times violence. Dads can lead the way in promoting a new revolution. By promoting healthy touching with our infant children, grandchildren, and of course friends. The reason the emperors experiment failed, is because science has understood that touching develops the brain and central nervous system.

Ukiah's J.J. McMillen chips a shot on the 18th hole Monday during the Ukiah High School Golf Classic. McMillen and the Wildcats finished third at the Classic.

LOS ANGELES -- Former Southern California star Reggie Bush said Monday there was nothing inappropriate about his family living at a home owned by a man who reportedly sought to market him. "When this is all said and done, everybody will see at the end of the day that we've done nothing, absolutely nothing wrong," Bush said in a live ESPN interview. "My parents leased the house, just like any normal family would. It's kind of funny how this whole story is getting blown out of proBush portion." The Pac-10 said Sunday that it will investigate whether any NCAA rules were violated when Bush's family, including mother Denise Griffin, stepfather LaMar Griffin and brother Jovan Griffin lived in the Spring Valley, Calif., house while Bush was still playing for USC last season. Bush declined to say who paid the rent. The home was owned by Michael Michaels, who reportedly attempted to steer Bush toward signing with San Diego agent David Caravantes, and sought to handle Bush's marketing with a new firm he had founded, Yahoo.com reported Sunday.

A team usually doesn't have to square off against three opponents at once, but the Ukiah golf team welcomed the challenge and had a strong showing Monday, finishing third overall at the 20th Annual Ukiah Golf Classic. The Wildcats came into the day with a stellar 8-0 record in North Bay League play, but they were forced to make up postponed matches against Cardinal Newman, Santa Rosa, and Montgomery during the tournament. The day got off to an ominous start for the Wildcat golfers as they completed an earlier match that was suspended due to darkness. Ukiah

suffered its first loss of the season by a single stroke, 401-402, in a two-hole playoff against Cardinal Newman. Bouncing back after the initial disappointment, the Wildcats finished the day with a team score of 384, good enough to claim victories over both Montgomery (398) and Santa Rosa (476). Ukiah currently sits first in their conference with a record of 10-1. They have three matches remaining before the North Bay League tournament begins next Tuesday, including a pivotal matchup with Maria Carrillo on Thursday. "The match I was really worried about was against Montgomery, and it turned out great," said Ukiah head coach Chris Philbrick. "Maria Carrillo is now in second place with a record of 6-2, so first place is going to come down to our final match of the season." Originally scheduled for April

10, the Ukiah Golf Classic featured 90 golfers from 15 area high schools. California High School in San Ramon shot a team score of 376, reclaiming the tournament trophy they had previously captured in 2004. Sonoma finished in second place with a score of 379, and Ukiah rounded out the top three. California senior Eric Crociata took home individual honors, with his final score of 70 holding up as the lowest round of the day. "I was actually feeling pretty sick today and I have a really bad cold," said Crociata. "I almost fell asleep in the middle of the round, but I was able to shoot a pretty good score." Ukiah's Max Brazill finished right behind Crociata with a score of 71 and took home awards in the closest-to-the-pin competition, knocking a tee shot seven-feet, sixSee CLASSIC, Page 7

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Nick Swisher and Eric Chavez hit back-to-back home runs in the sixth, and Joe Blanton pitched six solid innings to help the Oakland Athletics beat the Texas Rangers 3-2 on Monday night. Swisher homered for the third straight game -- a two-run shot off Texas reliever C.J. Wilson (1-1). It was Swisher's ninth homer of the season and gave Oakland a 2-1 lead. Chavez hit his eighth two pitches later off Wilson. Kevin Mench, who was 3-for-4, hit his fourth home run and added an RBI single for Texas. He has homered in four consecutive games. Oakland, which left 10 men on base before the sixth inning, had lost nine of 12. Texas saw its four-game winning streak end. Blanton (2-2) allowed two runs and eight hits in six innings. He struck out two and walked one. After the Rangers closed within 3-2 on Mench's runscoring single, Brad Wilkerson singled to move Mench to third with one out in the sixth. But Blanton, who had given up 14 runs over his last two starts, escaped trouble when Rod Barajas bounced into an inning-ending double play. Justin Duchscherer pitched a scoreless ninth for his

first save in two chances. Oakland closer Huston Street (strained right pectoral muscle) hasn't pitched since April 18 and isn't expected back before Wednesday. Texas starter Kevin Millwood pitched five shutout innings, but he struggled with his control. He walked six batters and got out of bases-loaded trouble in the third and fourth. He allowed four hits and struck out four. Wilson relieved Millwood and retired the first two batters in the sixth before walking Mark Kotsay. That set up the heroics from Swisher and Chavez, who have combined to hit 17 of Oakland's 27 home runs. Mench's solo shot in the second -- his fourth of the season -- gave Texas a 1-0 lead. He has 13 RBIs over the past five games. Notes: Chavez set the A's all-time franchise record with his 192nd homer as a third baseman. He had shared the mark with Sal Bando. ... Mench is one shy of tying the club record for consecutive games with a home run. Carl Everett (April 14-20, 2003), Alex Rodriguez (Aug. 17-21, 2003) and Mark Teixeira (July 11-19, 2004) hold the mark with five. ... Oakland SS Bobby Crosby (strained right triceps) did not play for the third straight game.

At this point in the season, Mendocino College head coach Kelvin Chapman knows his team inside out. He knows their resiliency, after watching them bounce back from an 0-12 preseason start to take the Bay Valley Conference by storm. He also knows when to push and prod them, and he knows when to back off. Chapman also knows his team never quits. Led by a nine-run fifth inning in the second game of Monday's home doubleheader with Los Medanos College, the Eagles split the allimportant battle between the two second place teams in the BVC with a 13-7, comeback win in the second game after dropping the first game, 5-1. With the split, both Los Medanos and Mendocino are 14-8 in BVC play. The Eagles host Yuba College today, and Los Medanos travels to take on Solano College. A Mendocino sweep will assure them of a second place finish in the BVC. "We made a few mental mistakes in the first game, and their pitcher threw a heck of a game," Chapman said. "But our girls know what they need to do. I've seen what they're made of." In the second game Friday, the Eagles were all about scoring runs. Mendocino jumped out to a 4-1 lead after two innings, which was quickly erased in the third inning when the Mustangs struck for four

NFL coaches discuss pros, cons of drafting QBs early

By JERRY McDONALD ANG Newspapers

Three teams are expected to roll the dice with their first pick Saturday, hoping to get lucky in assessing the NFL's most important position. It's generally accepted that by the end of Round 1, USC's Matt Leinart, Texas' Vince Young and Vanderbilt's Jay Cutler will be off the board. Only time will tell which of the three has what it takes to each the top of his profession. Chances are one or even two of them won't amount to much. A handful of NFL coaches were asked at this year's NFL owners meeting in Orlando about this year's trio of first-round locks and for their thoughts about the position. Although they sat at different tables, what follows is a simulated round table discussion about choosing a quarterback: Picking a winner Baltimore coach Brian Billick: "There's a reason why Bill Walsh never took a firstround quarterback. If you're going to a crap shoot, don't do it in the first round ... you don't want to throw the dice on the fifth, 10th, 15th or 25th pick. You'll do it with the 40th, 50th, sixth round or seventh round. Everybody had Ryan Leaf second, third or fourth on their board, I promise you. It was close between Leaf and Peyton Manning.'' New Orleans coach Sean Payton: "Take the Peyton Manning-Ryan Leaf debate. A lot of people shredded their reputation on those players . ... (quarterback) is a tough position because it comes in all shapes and sizes. ... I think the player's past performance is important. Has he been a consistent winner? Has he brought his team from behind in games? Has he been a guy that has not turned the ball over a lot?'' Tampa Bay coach Jon Gruden: "Get me film of all the fourth-quarter games when they're tight or behind so I can see how he performs when it's on the line." Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher: "The key thing, and this is where you have to start, is to ask, how would Jay have done at USC and how would have Matt done at Vanderbilt? Move Vince around a little bit and then start comparing them to one another. Matt had great people around him, Jay made the best of what he had, and Vince is a different type of quarterback.'' Denver coach Mike Shanahan: "What can't you see on film? How he handles himself, how he carries himself. How he handles questions, how he handles people. The great ones, they've got an air about them. At least the great ones I've been around, the Steve Youngs, the John Elways, the Joe Montanas." Bringing them along Minnesota coach Brad Childress: "You wouldn't want that guy on the field the first year. He could play in the preseason. You'd probably have to say this _ if we got that guy and he has to play in the first year, the (bleep)

has hit the fan." Oakland coach Art Shell: "If you've got your veteran quarterback, you sit that guy. I thought what Cincinnati did with Carson Palmer was excellent. What Tennessee did with Steve McNair was excellent. It gives these guys a chance to see what's going on, and to learn." Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher: "You can't dump the entire offense on him at one time. You have to take time. That doesn't mean he can't play early in his first year, or given the right set of circumstance he couldn't come in and start immediately. But you have to be careful at what you put on his plate early." Making a case New York Jets coach Eric Mangini: What makes (Cutler) interesting is he's at a program which hasn't had a lot of success and he's been able to create a level of success they haven't seen. Why was he able to do it? What qualities did he have?" Tampa Bay coach Jon Gruden: "You can't look past Leinart's success. His offense is a pro-style offense. You know he can handle the volume of the attack. He's big, he's durable. He's been in lopsided games, but he did great in the Notre Dame situation, even the bowl game against Texas. Phenomenal." Philadelphia coach Andy Reid: "I like (Young's) accuracy. The part I didn't know well enough was sitting down and talking football with him. Met him at the Maxwell awards. He was a lot different than I had been told he was, or expected him to be. He took control of the room. Showed great leadership. That's important. You've got to be able to rally those guys around you." Young's unconventional style Arizona coach Dennis Green: "I think too many quarterbacks fail because they try to make them all the same. If you look for the same quarterback, pretty soon you don't have variations. I think variation is good. The key is, how accurate are you? How successful are you at leading the team?" Atlanta coach Jim Mora: A lot of people are still narrow-minded when it comes to accepting alternate ways on how to play the position. We see that with Mike Vick all the time. People want him to be something he's not. If it's different, we're resistant to it for awhile." Young's subpar Wonderlic test score Miami coach Nick Saban: Any time you take a standardized test, if you're a standardized person, you're OK. But everyone is not standardized. I've got two kids at home. They're not standardized. They learn differently." New York Jets coach Eric Mangini: "I can think of four or five guys who had what could be considered low scores. You get to know them and think, `How could he possibly grade out at this? He's so much smarter than his score indicates. Then you have dumb smart guys. They've got great scores, but can't figure it out."

For Bonds, every day begins with an `if'

Hernadez comments draw ire

The Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Mets broadcaster Keith Hernandez was reprimanded by the team's television network for "inappropriate" remarks during a broadcast about a female member of San Diego's training staff. The former MVP first baseman said women "don't belong in the dugout" when he spotted 33-year-old Kelly Calabrese, the Padres' full-time massage therapist, high-fiving Mike Piazza in the dugout after he hit a home run during New York's 8-1 victory Saturday in San Diego. After Hernandez found out later in the broadcast that Calabrese was with the Padres training staff, he repeated that she shouldn't have been there. "I won't say that women belong in the kitchen, but they don't belong in the dugout," he said. Hernandez, a former Mets star, then laughed and said: "You know I am only teasing. I love you gals out there -- always have."

"Keith Hernandez made inappropriate comments regarding the presence of a female massage therapist of the San Diego Padres who was in the dugout," SportsNet New York said in a statement Monday. Hernandez said Sunday that he was sorry if he offended anyone. He also said that baseball's rulebook allowed only the head trainer and assistant trainer in the dugout. But a Major League Baseball memo previously sent to all clubs said that in addition to the two trainers, one member of the conditioning staff was permitted in the dugout during games. After Hernandez's remarks, MLB called the Padres and verified that, indeed, Calabrese was allowed. Calabrese said Sunday that she was flabbergasted by Hernandez's comments. "It's a little shocking but you know what -- it happens," she said. "He not only discredited me as a person, but he discredited women."

SAN FRANCISCO -- Barry Bonds says he will wake up one day and know it's time to retire, no matter where he stands on the career home run list. Right now, the San Francisco slugger is sore and struggling to find his powerful stroke -- and he acknowledges passing home run king Hank Aaron has become a long shot. "I never chased Hank to begin with," Bonds said Monday, standing by his locker before the Giants opened a three-game series against the New York Mets. "It's all if. Everything's if, right?" he said of how long his body will allow him to keep playing. "How do I feel? I feel sore, but I'm going to hang in there. ... When you become an older player, you become dayto-day. Whenever I wake up and say 'That's it,' that's the day." The 41-year-old Bonds hit his 709th career homer and first this season Saturday in Colorado, leaving him six shy of passing Babe Ruth and 47 from breaking Aaron's mark of 755. Bonds isn't moving the way he used to following three operations on his tender right knee last year. He also is bothered by bone chips in his left elbow and has been hounded by allegations of steroid use. But Bonds cares now more than ever about finally win-

ning a World Series -- the only thing missing on a decorated resume that already includes the single-season home run mark, a record seven NL MVP awards, 13 All-Star selections and eight Gold Gloves in left field. The Giants lost to the Angels in the 2002 World Series after coming within six outs of winning it all before blowing Game 6. "I just want to win a championship," Bonds said. "I'm playing to win a championship. That's the only thing that keeps me going. ... The only thing keeping me in the game of baseball right now is trying to win a championship for the team, trying to win a championship with a bunch of guys." Giants manager Felipe Alou believes Bonds' limited at-bats in spring training have contributed to his slow start at the plate. He was batting .229 with

two RBIs in 15 games, drawing nine intentional walks among his 20 free passes heading into Monday night's game against the Mets. "It is a slow start. It's hard to get off to a good start when you're not being pitched to," Alou said. "The at-bats he didn't have in spring training and we were hoping he'd get early in the season he's still not getting. ... His knee is OK. He doesn't have knee problems now. His timing may be a little off. ... "He may be getting two (atbats), less than three. He's not swinging the bat much. I thought it was going to affect Barry." When told of Alou's opinions about his knee, Bonds quickly set the record straight. "Ha! How old is Felipe?" Bonds said of the 70-year-old skipper. "It is (better), but it still hurts. They both hurt. But I'm going to go down with them both."

The most exciting moment of the tournament came from Healdsburg's Cory Emmerich during the long drive competition. Just after the bells had struck six o'clock, Emmerich crushed a drive nearly 300 yards, landing on the green of the first hole and sending the crowd into a frenzy. Medallions were handed out to golfers with the top eight individual scores, and medals were awarded to each member of the top three teams.

SAN ANTONIO -- Ron Artest's reputation might have caught up to him at a terrible time for the Sacramento Kings. The NBA suspended Artest on Monday for Game 2 of the Kings' first-round playoff series against the San Antonio Spurs. Stu Jackson, the league's top disciplinarian, said Artest's elbow to Manu Ginobili's head in the series opener was egregious enough to warrant another suspension for the man who missed 73 games and the playoffs last season after one of the most infamous brawls in sports history.

But after their difficult playoff task got exponentially harder, the Kings suggested Artest was punished simply for being Ron Artest, possibly the most notorious player of his generation. "You know with Ron's questionable past, they're going to look for a way to get him," said Bonzi Wells, who will get many of Artest's defensive assignments. "Whether it's minor or major, they're going to look at it in a different way." The one-game suspension caught both Artest's teammates and the Spurs completely by surprise, because neither club thought the personal foul was even worthy of postgame comment, much

runs to take a 5-4 lead. Two innings later, Los Medanos' pitcher, Deanne Newbury, took Mendocino freshman Shylo Rege deep for a two-run home run and a 7-4 lead. "I thought the sign was a hit and run," Newbury said. "The pitch was low and inside, right at the knees." Mendocino, staring down the barrel of a disastrous sweep, answered in kind in the bottom of the inning. First, a Sadie Poehlmann single scored Erin Heitmeyer to cut the Los Medanos lead to 7-5, and Katy Luetke came home on a throwing error to get within one run at 7-6. Then, with the bases loaded and one out, Jenn Carroll smacked a double that scored Melanie Harpe and Vickie

Asbury to give Mendocino an 8-7 advantage. But the Eagles weren't done there. Brandi McRae kept the inning alive with a single that scored Poehlmann, then first baseman Lindsay Ruddick tacked on another single, scoring Carroll and McRae for an 11-7 lead. Rege followed with a double that scored Ruddick, which was then followed by a Heitmeyer double that scored Rege for the final score and a 13-7 advantage. "We start the bat at zero miles per hour, but we want to finish at sixty-five miles per hour," Chapman said. "We were hitting them solid out there." Los Medanos couldn't start rallies in either the sixth or the seventh inning, and Rege closed out the victory by getting Rita Wagner to pop out in the top of the seventh. "I guess that goes to show that it works both ways, and

sometimes you have to take the good with the bad," said Los Medanos head coach Richard Watson. "But I would rather be in the position we're in right now than anywhere else, which is that we have our fate in our own hands still. Yeah, we let one get away, but we played hard and never quit. We're having a good season and I'm proud of our girls." Garcia was the losing pitcher for the Mustangs in the second game, while Ruddick led all players with five RBIs in the second game. "We've managed to come together as a team, and we're swinging the bats and getting hits together, too," Ruddick said. "Right now we're surging, making plays."

for the land. State records showed construction was completed in early 2005 and Michaels purchased it for more than $757,000 in late March. In a statement to the AP on Monday, William David Cornwell Sr., attorney for Bush and his mother and stepfather, said the tailback had no connection to the house. "Reggie Bush was a fulltime student at the University of Southern California and never lived in the house," Cornwell said. "As is the case with most 20-year-old college students, Reggie was not aware of personal or financial arrangements relating to his parents or their house. Mr. and Mrs. Griffin now realize that, given Reggie's profile, their personal decisions can reflect on their son." Bush did not answer a question about his relationship with Michaels. "There will be a later time for details," he said. "As of right now, it's still early and we don't want to get into all that."

ing extra benefits from agents or their representatives. "When this is all said and done, everybody will see at the end of the day that we've done nothing, absolutely nothing wrong," said Bush, the 2005 Heisman Trophy winner. Bush chose to turn pro after his junior season with USC and is expected to be the No. 1 pick in Saturday's NFL draft. He eventually signed with a different agent and marketing firm; his agent, Joel Segal, and Mike Ornstein, who handles marketing, did not immediately return telephone messages left Monday by The Associated Press. Yahoo reported that the family moved out last weekend after questions over its ownership arose. Bush suggested that the timing of the move was coincidental. "That's the funny thing," he said. "We've been looking for a house for two to three months. Now that I'm in the position of buying my parents a house, we've even made a bid on another house, but it ended up being too steep for my pocket." Pac-10 commissioner Tom Hansen said Monday that a Pac-10 investigation could start soon, but gave no specific time frame. USC could forfeit its 2006 Pac-10 football

title if Bush is ruled ineligible, he said. "I'm not a rules expert, but I think one of the available penalties would be forfeiture of games if you compete while ineligible," Hansen said at the Bowl Championship Series meetings in Phoenix. "I want to caution that that's a long way from where we are now. And I think all of us have seen that so often there are allegations made and when you get to the heart of the matter there' s nothing there." Any violation could also put Bush in a precarious position with the organization that awards the Heisman Trophy; the award ballot states that the winner must be in compliance with NCAA rules. Heisman officials will wait until the Pac-10 investigation is complete before deciding if any action needs to be taken. The Trojans went 12-1 last season, losing to Texas in the national championship game at the Rose Bowl. USC coach Pete Carroll was on the road recruiting Monday and was unavailable for comment. The two-story house sits on a corner on a steep hill in an unincorporated area outside San Diego. The pavement of the driveway apron is inscribed with the words "The Griffins '05."' San Diego County records show the 3,002-square-foot home has an assessed value of $339,394, including $99,394

Ukiah Literacy Alliance seeks dedicated volunteer tutors

The Ukiah Literacy Alliance is looking for volunteer tutors to work with adults on English language skills. Training is provided to tutors, who are each matched with a student who receives individualized instruction in reading, writing and basic math, depending on his or her needs. Each learner sets individual goals, and the tutor and student work together to achieve them. This one-to-one method of instruction has several advantages: · Every lesson is tailored to the learner's individual needs. · Lessons are scheduled at times and locations that are convenient for both the learner and the tutor. · The individualized instruction promotes rapid learning that results in immediate rewards for both the learner and the tutor. No previous teaching experience is required to become a tutor in the Ukiah Literacy Alliance program, and the time commitment is not great. Many tutors and learners meet for an hour once a week, either at the library or another location of their choice. Prospective tutors will be taught how tutoring methods work in a tutor-training workshop. Instructors will introduce the materials and explain how to apply them. The detailed stepby-step instructions in the teacher and student manuals help the tutors use the materials with ease and confidence. Also available are computers, audio-visual materials and a literacy resource library. Tutors must be 18 or older to participate in the program. Tutors are always needed, and Spanish-speaking tutors are in especially high demand since some of the prospective students have limited English speaking skills. All tutors are welcome and encouraged to participate in the program. Literacy tutors have benefited from the program by making new friends and: · Providing a community service that really helps an individual · Learning more about other cultures · Becoming more familiar with community resources and services Students in the program have made new friends and reached goals such as: · Becoming U.S. citizens · Advancement in their jobs · Getting their driver's license · Reading to and with their children · Gaining access to community services Those who would like to volunteer to become a tutor, a board member or would like to assist the program in other ways may call 463-4155 and leave a name, phone number and mailing address to receive more information.

Fred Persily will be speaking at the upcoming Mendocino County Human Rights/Relations Commission meeting to be held, Saturday, April 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mendocino County Public Health Building, 1120 S. Dora St. in Ukiah. Persily provides technical assistance to police, schools, and community organizations and individuals to assist them in understanding some of the causes of bias and hate. The April 29 HRC meeting will be an informal meeting and is open to the public. Persily will be addressing the HRC group to discuss issues regarding the structure and process in establishing a countywide human relations commission. Persily will be talking to the group about the benefits and the importance of establishing a countywide human rights/relations commission in Mendocino County. There will also be a questions and answer period. Persily established and directed a nationwide research center that provided technical assistance to police, schools and community organizations on civil rights issues. It was this nationwide research center organization that contracted with the California Attorney General to write the reports and recommendations on hate violence. Persily held forums and wrote a report to ensure bias is reported and responded to appropriately within California schools and communities for the California Attorney General. The term "hate crimes" and "hate violence" derive from a series of reports that Fred Persily and his staff

Fred Persily wrote for the California Attorney General. The reports produced between 1985 and 1990 provided a blueprint for state and community efforts to address bias-motivated violence throughout the United States. Although Persily held several jobs during his 40-year career, his focus has been remarkably consistent. He organized the first African American and Latino inmate self-help organization in California prisons when he was a teacher at San Quentin. He also worked on special assignment for the Director of Corrections in East Los Angeles and Watts to develop programs linking colleges and universities and social justice organizations with the state prison and parole systems. He assumed responsibility for intervening in racial and ethnic conflicts as consultant for the state civil rights agency and his work led to the creation of a California Task Force on Civil Rights to help local governments cope with these challenges. As director of a human relation commission he organized a countywide network of school districts, police departments, the mental health association and community and faith based orga-

nizations to prevent and respond to hate motivated activities and took on the responsibility of creating a similar network in San Francisco as director of Intergroup Clearinghouse. "There is nothing unique or startling in what I've done, it is simply a matter of understanding some of the causes of bias and bigotry and applying the principles for addressing them to real situations" say Persily. He recently completed a guide to help communities' design and implement strategies to address bias for the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing. He helped organize human relations commissions and networks to address bias-motivated violence throughout California as director of the California Association of Human Relations Organizations. "Responding to gang violence or to racial or ethnic tensions is exhilarating work that is very rewarding," says Persily. His goal now is to promote recognition of biasprevention and response as a critical discipline and encourage others to enter the field. The April 29 meeting is the third meeting for this group. Booker Neal, senior mediator with the United States Department of JusticeCommunity Relations Services will also be present at the meeting. Ernie Jones will facilitate the meeting. For more information or if you have any questions please call Delynne Rogers at 463-2223. LaCretia Peoples is the founder of and the managing director for the Mendocino County Martin Luther King, Jr. Organization (McMLK)

Many Mexican Folkloric dances will also be featured in this performance. Under the direction of college dance instructor Juvenal Vasquez, a variety of colorful dances will be performed by many of his adult and younger students.

No good reason why 12 year old can't sleep in the nude

Dear Annie: I am 12, and in the winter, it's cold, so I usually wear a flannel nightgown to bed. I often wake up in the middle of the night because I'm hot, and I throw off the blankets. Then I wake up cold in the morning. In warmer months, this can happen even if I wear a T-shirt to bed. My parents sleep in the nude. I guess I thought it was an adult thing, like drinking coffee, but I thought I'd give it a try. It felt strange at first, but after a while, it felt great. I didn't wake up in the middle of the night, and since I keep my blankets on, I didn't wake up cold in the morning. I keep my nightgown right next to the bed so I can slip it on when I get up. After a few nights of doing this, I told my parents. They were really angry and say I am too young to sleep naked, even though they can't give me a good reason. Will you tell me if there's a reason I shouldn't sleep in the nude, and if not, can you help me convince my parents that it's OK? -California Girl Dear California Girl: The only reason to

sleep in jammies is if you want to, or if someone is likely to walk in on you. Since your parents were unaware you were doing this until you told them, we assume no one enters your bedroom after you get into bed, so we don't see anything wrong with it. That said, however, we aren't going to undermine your parents. If they are uncomfortable with you sleeping in the nude, we hope you will respect that. In fact, abiding by their decisions, even when you disagree, will stand you in good stead. They will know they can trust you.

with writing, "Dance like nobody's watching; love like you've never been hurt. Sing like nobody's listening; live like it's heaven on earth." Later, the phrase "Work like you don't need the money" was added, often credited to baseball great Satchel Paige. This poem obviously speaks to a lot of people, because over the years, many others have created their own additions. We think the sentiments are life-affirming. Dear Annie: I am a 22-year-old male living in Southern California. For as far back as I can remember, I have felt like I was born the wrong gender. Transgendered people often realize this at an early age. I knew since the age of 6. It is hard for people to understand unless they have it, and this lack of understanding often leads to intolerance and bigotry. It is unfortunate and hurtful, since all we are trying to do is be ourselves, a nd reconcile the way we feel inside with the way we look outside. Most of us are normal, nice people. You have probably met someone who is transgendered and didn't even know it. It is difficult for people of any age, but especially children, to come to grips with this. You feel trapped with no way out. This can lead to severe

depression, and, unfortunately, many transgendered people turn to suicide, thinking they'll never be able to resolve the issue. I hope readers who have children who feel this way will get some help for them through counseling. And that those going through this will understand that they are not alone. I hope the rest will be understanding and compassionate. Thank you, Annie, for shedding some light on a subject that needs it. -- Been There, Too, in California Dear California: You're welcome. We hope your letter will open up the lines of communication for those who need it. Dear Readers: Tomorrow is Administrative Professionals Day.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Things have a way of going a lot smoother for you when you approach life philosophically. Try keeping in mind that whatever

Wednesday, April 26, 2006 Your popularity is apt to be peaking in the year ahead, and you could find yourself much on the go socially. The aspects indicate this will do wonders for you in ways that can bring about a favorable personal change.

occurs can be utilized in a manner for your ultimate good. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may accomplish something that will give you a great deal of personal pride, yet you'll feel no need to shout about it from the rooftops. You're apt to play it low-key and humble. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - Events might provide an opportune time to approach a delicate matter with someone whose support you need to launch it. You'll find this person receptive and openminded. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Double luck may be with you when two people with whom you'll be

involved treat you in a very generous and considerate manner, unbeknownst to each other. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Your judgment and communicative skills are usually very good and will be so again, enabling you to succeed at whatever you attempt, especially with social issues. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 22) -- Should you feel compelled to putter around the house, by all means do so. Even if it's a big job, what you do will feel more like a hobby than work -and turn out to be pleasing to all. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You have a

manner about you (when you choose to turn it on) that others find charming and attractive. These attributes will be in evidence again and make you a standout with all. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) -- Those concerns you have regarding a financial matter could go by the board. It looks like things are coming down in ways that will produce the type of happy results you need. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 19) -- If you have to make a presentation of sorts, business or otherwise, you'll be far more effective and better remembered if you make your points with a bit of theatrics. Play it up.

PISCES (Feb. 20March 20) -- There's a good chance you'll acquire something material that you've been craving recently. The way in which it comes about could be a bit mysterious, though. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Someone for whom you've done a favor and been kind to in the past will get his/her chance to do something nice for you. This person may do so without even informing you.

`Deep Throat' speaks in new memoir by family friend

By LOUISE CHU Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO -- Watergate's "Deep Throat" tells his side of the story in a new memoir, but the book sheds little new light on his relationship with reporter Bob Woodward and how it led to the undoing of President Nixon. "A G-Man's Life: The FBI, 'Deep Throat' and the Struggle for Honor in Washington," by former FBI secondin-command W. Mark Felt, hit bookshelves Monday. In it, Felt tells in his own words what motivated him to become the key source for Washington Post reporters Woodward and Carl Bernstein. Upset by the slow pace of the FBI

investigation into the Watergate break-in, Felt said he believed the press could apply some much-needed pressure on the administration to cooperate. He saw himself as a "Lone Ranger" who could help "derail the White House cover-up." "From the start, it was clear that senior administration officials were up to their necks in this mess, and that they would stop at nothing to sabotage our investigation," Felt writes. Co-written by family friend John O'Connor, who revealed Deep Throat's identity in a 2005 Vanity Fair article, "A G-Man's Life" includes excerpts from Felt's 1979 memoir, "The FBI Pyramid: From

the Inside," and an unpublished memoir that Felt wrote in the mid1980s. Felt, now 92, was unable to offer much fresh insight in the book because of his age and weak memory, O'Connor writes in his prologue. Felt suffered a stroke in 2001 and has been in declining health. The scandal that brought down Nixon began with a break-in and the attempted tapping of phones in the Democratic National Committee offices in the Watergate office building during the 1972 campaign. It went on to include disclosures of spying by Nixon's henchman and retaliation against their perceived enemies.

Felt discusses his hesitation about working with Woodward. On one hand, he didn't want the FBI to be blamed for allowing Nixon to get away with a crime; one the other, he feared criticism if he violated his loyalty to the agency. He also dismisses later speculation that he became Deep Throat because he was angry at being passed over as J. Edgar Hoover's successor and wanted to sabotage the new boss, L. Patrick Gray. "It is true that I would have welcomed an appointment as FBI director when Hoover died. It is not true that I was jealous of Gray," he wrote. Felt wrote positively of his relationship with Woodward, then a

young reporter. But O'Connor wrote in the introduction that Felt became furious when the reporters revealed they had a senior source in the executive branch and identified the source by the name Deep Throat, "slamming down the phone when Woodward called for his reaction." "A G-Man's Life," also chronicles Felt's decades-long career in the FBI and reveals that Felt's wife did not die of a heart attack in 1984, as he told people, but killed herself with his service revolver following years of depression. Audrey Felt's suicide, revealed in O'Connor's introduction, is never directly addressed in Felt's own writings.

to get healthier options in the high school vending machines; the only problem is they are more expensive so this new local group went out and asked our community what they thought we could do to improve our current situation and we decided that lowering the price on the healthier options would allow more students to try these healthier products, so personal choice would not be influenced by cost," Bishop said. At some point, Bishop and her group will do a study using data from Canteen to see if lower prices equate to an increase in sales. Through her work as a SYBOP representative, Bishop was able to co-sponsor SB12 which passed the California Legislature last year, setting nutritional standards for all foods located in vending machines on K through 12 campuses. She also supported SB965 - by writing letters and meeting with assembly members and senators -- which passed in 2005, eliminating sodas from school vending machines. "It's overwhelmingly amazing to be able to testify in front of assembly members and senators and have them

It's really empowering, actually," she said of the experience. "They really do listen to youth and I never realized how hungry they are for the opinion of youth. These policies, they affect us and so often there are adults talking for us, so when youth come to the Capitol and write letters, they really respect that and listen to it. ... The local work, the work at the legislative level, all the connections and the people I ment to agencies that work with the homeless. Youssoupoff said law enforcement has been working with community services in enforcing this ordinance, often bringing violators to shelters rather than arresting them. During the first year of enforcement, the Ukiah Police Department issued 220 warnings and 86 citations, but only arrested 15 people. Youssoupoff said acting Sheriff Kevin Broin has been especially good at limiting enforcement to the most nechave met ... has completely turned my life upside down in the best way possible." Jordan, who joined Bishop this year, agreed. "It's been so amazing ... the learning experiences, such as giving presentations at the Capitol, meeting lobbyists, legislators ... It's also connected me with community organizations," Jordan said. Neither Bishop or Jordan had originally planned to go down this path. "Fate got me into this," Jordan said. "Basically last year I switched into a math essary cases. However, with elections fast approaching, Youssoupoff said he is concerned that another sheriff might use a countywide law to crack down on Mendocino County's homeless population. "They're going to make homelessness illegal, which is the same thing as making poverty illegal," Youssoupoff said. Consideration of this ordinance by the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors

class which happened to be Lauren's dad's class. So when she was recruiting more members, her dad mentioned me." "I got into this by chance," Bishop said. "I ended up receiving a flyer my freshman year and going to a school board meeting and speaking on the lack of healthy options in my school. So I am kind of a firm believer that people should just take life where it goes. I have said `yes' over and over again and it's led me here, so I just plan on saying `yes' to opportunities throughout my college career and see where that takes me." Bishop credits Linda Helland with the Mendocino County Department of Public Health as being her mentor, but it's safe to say Bishop is more than capable on her own. After she graduates from Ukiah High she will attend Stanford where she plans to major in political science or international relations with a focus on health and environmental policy. Asked who will continue her mission at the high school after she graduates, Bishop said: "I know that Elena and James will keep fighting the fight. I also am going to be at Stanford next year and I am hoping that, depending on my schedule, I will be able to stop in and help if they need me. ... This is my baby."

Rural mural project to be unveiled

On Wednesday, the Rural Mural Project and Teens from Trinity-Ukiah will celebrate the unveiling of a new mural "Unifying Cultural Traditions." The festivities will begin at 3:45p.m. at the 225 South Hope Street entrance to Trinity School. The community is invited to share this occasion for speeches, refreshments, and the unveiling of the special project. Trinity-Ukiah's new mural was sponsored and funded by the Mendocino County Department of Public Health's Alcohol and other Drug Programs, Prevention Services' Rural Murals Project through a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Under the direction of artist Alexa Armenta and assistant Hiawatha Blake the mural was completed by Tim H., Tiffany H, Summer K, Arturo M., Angele N., Barbara T., Katherine N., and Maria A.

Violence, theft, rape and drug abuse are all problems associated with large homeless encampments and Youssoupoff agrees that police need laws in place to deal with these problems, but said increased enforcement needs to be matched by an increased financial commit-

today comes just weeks after a decision by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that ruled a similar law in Los Angeles unconstitutional because it represents cruel and unusual punishment. The court ruled that sleeping outside is "an unavoidable consequence of being human and homeless without shelter."

Richland to Ukiah over the course of four days. When they reached Ukiah, Huston said the man ordered her into a dumpster and told her not to get out. Huston was never able to give Sheriff's deputies or police a good description of her abductor. Broin said there were other parts of Huston's story that didn't make sense. "Basically we put all the pieces together and they didn't add up," Broin said. Huston has been released from the Ukiah Valley Medical Center where she

was being treated for hypothermia and a head laceration. Broin said Huston was seeking treatment in Kennewick for an additional health issue but would not disclose the nature of Huston's problem. Sgt. Ken Lattin said the Kennewick police have forwarded the report of Huston's false complaint to the Kennewick City Attorney who will review it and decide on possible charges.
