Starthistle prevalent throughout state, with our county at the top of the list

By JAMES ARENS The Daily Journal

Mendocino County is tied for second place in a race it doesn't want to win. "The yellow starthistle is pretty big here in Mendocino County," said John M. Harper, University of California Cooperative Extension Livestock/Natural Resources adviser. "It's definitely a problem weed." The yellow starthistle is a noxious, yellow-blossoming exotic weed with 1-inch-long spines that's commonly found

The number of arrests for driving under the influence went up and the number of traffic accident fatalities remained static this year during the Fourth of July holiday weekend. Between 6 p.m. Friday and 12 a.m. Wednesday, the California Highway Patrol observed a Maximum Enforcement Period. This means that at all times, 80 percent of uniformed personnel were on the road looking for those violating the law. In Mendocino County, 11 people were arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence during the enforcement period. There were also five traffic accidents during that period, one of which resulted in a fatality. The remaining accidents resulted in mostly minor to moderate injuries.

Judge Jonathan Lehan has denied a motion by Russell and Sara Rexrode to suppress evidence gathered in a search for evidence of animal cruelty that revealed evidence of illegal marijuana cultivation and sale. The Rexrodes argued that material evidence was deliberately misstated or omitted in an affidavit that led to the issuing of the search warrant. Lehan ruled the affidavit did not deliberately misstate or omit facts and contained evidence sufficient to justify a search for evidence of animal cruelty. Fish and Game Warden Lynette Shimek testified that

Small business says solar is the way to go


There's something new at Home, Audio, Video and DFM Car Stereo ... it's not for sale, but it will make business owner Brian Brodoski money in the long run. The 1,600-square-foot solar array lining the rooftop of Brodoski's company cost around $135,000, but it will offset his electricity bill by about 20 percent, he said, even after he has it paid off. "Usually the savings equals any payments you would make on this for five years and then it's free after

that," Brodoski said. Nathan Booth, of Radiant Solar Technology in Ukiah, agreed. "With city of Ukiah rebates and available federal tax credits, small businesses can expect a system to pay for itself in about five years. ... For a homeowner or business, you are locking in your utility rates for the life of the system," he said. This particular system is synchronized with the city's utility grid, which allows the electronic meter to essentially spin backwards

Mendocino County was recently awarded $250,432.96 from the state's Indian Gaming Special Distribution Fund. The money came from contributions to the fund made by the Hopland Band of Pomo Indians. It will be used to help maintain law enforcement patrol services to the Sho-KaWah Casino in Hopland by funding one and a half sheriff's patrol deputy positions, and will also benefit Crime Victims Mitigation and Healthy Kids Mendocino. Mendocino County's Indian Gaming Local Community Benefit Committee -- its formation is required by the state in order for the Indian Gaming Special Distribution Fund to allocate money raised from gaming license fees -- met in early May to discuss requests for funding and to forward a list of approved projects to the State Controller's Office. The committee is comprised of Hopland Band of Pomo Indians representatives Wanda Balderama and Alice Becerra, Mendocino County representatives Supervisor David Colfax and Supervisor Michael Delbar and local representatives Anne Molgaard and Hale P. Knight Jr. In a press release, the county thanked the Hopland Band of Pomo Indians for its contributions to the fund and "for its professionalism and cooperation throughout the grant application process."

Enron founder Kenneth Lay, convicted of helping perpetuate fraud, dies at 64

HOUSTON (AP) -- Enron Corp. founder Kenneth Lay, who faced decades in prison for one of the most sprawling business frauds in U.S. history, died Wednesday while vacationing in Aspen, Colo. He was 64. His pastor in Houston said Lay died of a heart attack, which had not yet been confirmed by an autopsy. Lay ascended from near-poverty as a minister's son in Missouri to the pinnacle of corporate America. He was considered a visionary who had President Bush's ear during Enron's halcyon days, but his reputation and monumental wealth shattered with that of his company. He spent his last years optimistically insisting he was no criminal, even after he became a felon. "I guess when you're facing the rest of your life in jail and in your heart you know you're an innocent man, I guess it's too much to bear," said close friend Willie Alexander. Lay had stayed out of the public eye since a federal jury on May 25 convicted him and former Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling of fraud and conspiracy for lying to employees and investors about Enron's financial health.

It took Discovery's crew more than six hours to get 70 minutes of video because they had to move the boom slowly so not to bump the fragile shuttle skin. In 2003, a piece of foam insulation from the shuttle's external tank knocked a hole in a wing during launch, causing Columbia to disintegrate as it returned home for a landing.

centage point. Lopez Obrador demanded a recount of every ballot, saying Wednesday: "The political stability of the country hangs in the balance." Lopez Obrador could mobilize millions if he doesn't get his way. In a news conference Wednesday, Calderon raised the possibility that he would do the same. "We could also call for protests, but the vote can't be replaced by demonstrations," he said. "They are trying to undermine an election without having the results to back it up."

3 charged with stealing confidential Israel authorizes army to enter populated Coca-Cola info, trying to sell it to PepsiCo areas in northern Gaza Strip

ATLANTA (AP) -- Three people were charged by federal prosecutors on Wednesday with stealing confidential information, including a sample of a new drink, from The Coca-Cola Co. and trying to sell it to rival PepsiCo Inc. The suspects include a Coke executive's administrative assistant, Joya Williams, who is accused of rifling through corporate files and stuffing documents and a new Coca-Cola product into a personal bag. Williams, 41, of Norcross, Ga., and 30-year-old Ibrahim Dimson of New York and 43-year-old Edmund Duhaney of Decatur, Ga., were arrested on charges of wire fraud and unlawfully stealing and selling Coke trade secrets, federal prosecutors said. They are expected to appear before a federal magistrate judge on Thursday in Atlanta, where Coca-Cola is based. Pepsi spokesman Dave DeCecco said his company did what any responsible company would do in cooperating with Coke and the investigation. JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israel stepped up pressure Wednesday on Hamas militants who launched improved, longer range rockets into the heart of a major Israeli city, authorizing the army to enter populated areas in the northern Gaza Strip. The planned invasion threatened to be far bloodier than Israel's week-old offensive in Gaza aimed at freeing an abducted soldier. To carve out a sufficiently wide buffer zone to protect Israeli towns from such attacks, the army might have to go into densely populated areas where it can expect fierce resistance from Palestinian militants. Previous raids into the northern town of Jebaliya have sparked running gunbattles that have caused serious casualties on both sides. "There will be steps taken and they will be very serious," said Cabinet Minister Yitzhak Herzog, who refused to elaborate on the military's plans. "There is a very broad operation here. It will continue."

Japan says it's considering sanctions against North Korea in a U.N. resolution

UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- Japan said Wednesday it is considering sanctions against North Korea in a U.N. resolution that would condemn the reclusive communist nation's missile tests and call for a return to six-party talks on its nuclear program. But China and Russia said they favor a weaker council statement without any threat of sanctions, positions that will make it very difficult for Japan and its key allies, the United States and Britain, to get tough measures. Ambassadors from the 15 nations on the Security Council held an emergency meeting on a response to North Korea, which defied international appeals and conducted a series of missile launches. No draft resolution was introduced, but it was expected to be circulated later in the day when an initial discussion of council experts was scheduled. U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said the council must send a "strong and unanimous signal" that North Korea's missile testlaunch was unacceptable. After the meeting, he said that "no member defended what the North Koreans have done."

Mexico begins review of presidential vote to determine if Calderon really won As U.S. approaches 300 million people, Europe frets about shrinking MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexico began a marathon review

of vote tallies Wednesday to determine whether conservative candidate Felipe Calderon really won the tight presidential race, while his leftist challenger insisted he was victorious and denounced what he called widespread irregularities. Calderon told The Associated Press that he would be willing to include his charismatic challenger in his Cabinet in an effort to avoid weeks of political impasse. But he said he didn't think Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador would accept, adding that the two men hadn't talked since the election. A preliminary count showed Calderon, of President Vicente Fox's conservative National Action Party, ahead by just 1 per-

WASHINGTON (AP) -- As the U.S. population speeds toward 300 million, the growth is producing headaches for Americans fed up with traffic congestion, sprawl and dwindling natural resources. But the alternatives are pretty scary, too. Just look at Europe and Japan, which are on the verge of such big population losses that several countries are practically begging women to have babies. "Europe and Japan are now facing a population problem that is unprecedented in human history -- declining population over

Crew inspects shuttle with on-board cameras, finds no damage to spacecraft

HOUSTON (AP) -- Early inspections have revealed no damage to the space shuttle Discovery, NASA said Wednesday after a day of checking out the spacecraft with on-board cameras. That means that when the shuttle meets up with the international space station Thursday morning it likely won't need emergency repairs while hooked up with the orbital outpost -- unlike last year's daring spacewalk fixes. Discovery's delicate heat shield and everything else appear at first glance to be in near perfect shape, NASA officials said, although it's still very early in the analysis. Engineers are nowhere near finished poring over 70 minutes

Based on a true story, this film focuses on three young girls who will do whatever it takes to return to their families. After being taken away to an orphanage as part of Australia's integration program for aborigines, these young girls decided to escape and walk the 1,500 miles back to their homes through the Outback with no food or water. As they struggle with the harshness of this journey, Australian authorities add to the danger as they work to find the girls. It's an amazing story about the strength and determination of the human spirit even in the most unforgiving of realities. Admission is free and the film is open to the public. There will be lots of popcorn and other refreshments. There will also be a time for an informal discussion at the end of the film. For more information, call 462-3360 ext 203, email [email protected], or visit our website at

Fenney, Lippman and a CIA agent to sing for KMUD Wednesday

KMUD presents the return of Anne Feeney, Dave Lippman and "Singing CIA Agent George Shrub,"three performers who have delighted and provoked Northcoast audiences for years, to "Beginnings in Briceland" on Wednesday. Anne Feeney has lived her life on the frontlines ­ performing at thousands of rallies, picket lines and demonstrations over the years ­ including the WTO demonstrations in Seattle, Solidarity Day in Washington, DC, and for 1.5 million at the April 2004 March for Women's Lives. Feeney's bottomless song bag draws on Irish, bluegrass, traditional, labor, pop, folk and contemporary material. Her anthem, "Have You Been to Jail for Justice?" is a staple tune for Peter Paul and Mary, and is featured on their 5-CD boxed set. Shrub, known for his deadpan delivery of compositions like "The Twelve Days of Bushmas," "Why They Hate Us," and "The Evil of Access," is nearly always accompanied by Lippman, who has been performing to politically-minded audiences since 1969. Together, Shrub, Lippman and Feeney accomplish the almost impossible: creating laughter and musical joy from the current political scene. Tickets are $15 at the door, with no one turned away for lack of funds, and all proceeds will benefit KMUD. Attendees can purchase an organic dinner starting at 7 p.m., music begins at 8 p.m. KMUD is Redwood Community Radio, non-commercial community radio serving Humboldt, Mendocino, Trinity and Del Norte counties at 88.3, 91.1 and 90.3 FM, and also on the worldwide web at

Letters from our readers In our opinion Lies continue So close ...

To the Editor: We went into Iraq based on falsified information and whipped up hysteria. Our senators and congressmen were lied to (perjury) and believed those lies. You are still being lied to while thousands of our troops have died or been maimed for life. Alan Sunbeam Ukiah We feel almost as anxious as we know local skaters are for the long awaited Ukiah Skate Park to finally get under way. The city of Ukiah has the park in its new budget, which means the city thinks all the money will be there to make it happen in the fiscal year which begins July 1. There's still some $70,000 worth of fund raising to finish and the skate park committee is planning an August 26 Skate Park Picnic and Skate Jam as well as fun activities at the PumpkinFest and a fall Fiesta dinner-dance. Watch for announcements in this newspaper as these events get closer and be sure to vote with your wallet if you are one of the many young people or their parents and grandparents who have hoped for so long that this needed community facility would get built. It's been a long time coming - we remember a Ukiah City Council of the early 1990s telling local Boy Scouts they'd be happy to help provide a skate park - and we're in the final stretch. If you really want to get involved you can attend the next meeting of the skate park committee at 5:15 p.m. on Tuesday July 22 at the Ukiah Civic Center or check out their Web site at

Thank you

To the Editor: Phoenix Certified Hospice of Mendocino County held its 9th Annual Garden Tour on Sunday, June 4 and it was a beautiful event. Although Phoenix Certified Hospice has been serving terminally ill patients and their families in Ukiah for many years, this was the first year we included gardens in Ukiah as well as Willits. What a wonderful reception we received from so many and we want to express our gratitude to the Ukiah Valley community for their generosity and support on this day. As a not-for-profit agency, Phoenix Certified Hospice of Mendocino County relies on fundraising events and donations to help pay for the rising costs of providing comprehensive end-of-life care to terminally ill patients and their families. The Garden Tour is one of the biggest fundraisers we do throughout the year and is the culmination of the hard work and generous spirit of so many. This lovely event not only features the beautiful garden delights of local residents, but the musical talents of local musicians and the delectable dishes of local restaurants, caterers and home chefs. Each garden was hosted by individuals who volunteered to meet and greet the garden lovers attending the tour and to provide help and support to the garden owners throughout the day. These homeowners, musicians, chefs and hosts donated their time and talents to truly make the garden tour a wonderful experience for all who attended. Their huge contribution to making our 9th Annual Garden Tour such a success deserves to be publicly acknowledged. (In order to be respectful of space limitations in our local papers we will acknowledge our Willits friends in the Willits News.) To our "Garden Tour Organizer Extraordinaire" Vicki Bitonti-Brown who took on the role of the Ukiah Garden Tour Coordinator, we appreciate all you did, and it was a lot! We could not have made this all come together without your time, commitment and connections. To Carol Orton, Donna Stropes, Gail Richards, Martha Carol and Pat Williams, garden tour committee queens and princesses, thank you for all your experience, talents and support you brought to Ukiah. An enormous thank you, to the garden owners, who gave up their privacy for the day and shared their lovely surroundings; Vicki Bitonti-Brown and Ken Brown, John and Linda Houston, Fina and Jose Mariscal, Ernest and Corinne Olson, Dennis and Madelyn Yeo and Jack and Barbara Daniels. Without your generosity this event would not have happened. Thank you to the musicians who donated their time and talents to add that special touch and lovely ambiance at each garden; Ali Froshen and the amazing Breath, George Husaruk, Patrick Hagel, Paula Samonte and guests, Rudy Luehs, Chris Gibson, Dawn Sempton, Audrey and Sam Kircher, Will Siegel and Steve Baird and Kristen Robin. To the home chefs that made such amazing food for the event, Jeannie Russell, Bonnie Bruce, Susan Bolling, Jacquie and Jessica Lee and Carol Rosenberg, thank you for tantalizing the taste buds of so many. And to our beloved host and hostesses that did everything from

The age of interruption

LIMA, Peru -- The best part of this job is being able to step outside of your routine and occasionally look at the world through a completely different lens. The Peruvian Amazon rain forest is such a lens, and looking at the world through this dense jungle has given me new perspectives on two issues -- Middle East violence and the spread of the Internet. What is so striking about the rain forest, when viewed up close, is what an incredibly violent place it is -- with trees, plants and vines all struggling with each other for sunlight, and animals, insects and birds doing the same for food. I was always impressed at how our Peruvian Indian guide would identify a certain bird or wild pig or possum or parrot and immediately add who its predators were. In the rain forest, everyone and everything is part of a matched pair of predator and prey. Yes, there is nothing like the violence of a rain forest, but it is violence with an identifiable purpose: plants and animals demarcating and protecting territory for the survival of their species. I have to say that the violence unfolding between Israelis and Palestinians today is utterly without purpose. Israel has evacuated Gaza, and what does Hamas do? It doesn't put all its energy into building a nest for its young there -- a decent state and society, with jobs. Instead, it launches hundreds of rockets into Israel. The Palestinians could have a state on the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem tomorrow, if they and the Arab League clearly recognized Israel, normalized relations and renounced violence. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't know Israel today. But those driving Palestinian politics seem determined to destroy Israel in its territory -- even if it means destroying themselves in their own territory. Species that behave that way in the rain forest become extinct. As for the Internet in the rain forest, my point is this: There is none. Yes, I had to go to the Tambopata Research Center, deep in the Peruvian Amazon, to find it, but I can report there is still a place with no Internet or cell phone service. Of course, there are still many such places, but the fact that people could use their cell phones from atop the sacred Incan ruin of Machu Picchu, in the Andes, reminds one that there are fewer and fewer every day. I have to say, as a wired junkie myself, there was something cleansing about spending four days totally disconnected. It was the best antidote to the disease of our age, what the former Microsoft executive Linda Stone aptly labeled "continuous partial attention." Continuous partial attention is when you are on the Internet or cell phone or BlackBerry while also watching TV, typing on your computer and answering a question from your kid. That is, you are multitasking your way through the day, continuously devoting only partial attention to each act or person you encounter. It is the malady of modernity. We have gone from the Iron Age to the Industrial Age to the Information Age to the Age of Interruption. All we do now is interrupt each other or ourselves with instant messages, e-mail, spam or cell phone rings. Who can think or write or innovate under such conditions? One wonders whether the Age of Interruption will lead to a decline in civilization -- as ideas and attention spans shrink and we all get diagnosed with some version of Attention Deficit Disorder. I know that connectivity means productivity. But it is possible to overdose. There is such a thing as "too connected," and modern society is heading in that direction, as more people at more income levels get wired. Everyone we met in Peru had a cell phone, since Peru, like so many developing countries, is going straight from no phones to cell phones, skipping over land lines. It means everyone is always "in." You're never "out." Out is over. Maybe soon we'll have to artificially re-create "out." Maybe soon we'll see an ad for a Four Seasons resort that says, "We guarantee that every room comes without Internet service." What struck me about our Peruvian rain forest guide, Gilbert, though, was that he carried no devices and did not suffer from continuous partial attention. Just the opposite. He heard every chirp, whistle, howl or crackle in the rain forest and would stop us in our tracks and immediately identify what bird, insect or animal it was. He also had incredible vision and never missed a spider's web, or a butterfly, or a toucan, or a column of marching termites. He was totally disconnected from the Web, but totally in touch with the incredible web of life around him. I wonder if there's a lesson there.

helping with food to selling tickets, Daphne Mcneil, Jacquie and Jessica Lee, Judith Fuentes, Karen and Norm Rosen, Bonnie Bruce, Lyn Wood, Claire Henderson, Samia Whitmarsh, Kat and Jerry Harris, Lyn Davis, Barbara Willens, Reba and George Chavez, Susan Bolling, Sandra Linn, Eileen Harmon and Tom Batley, Sam Faulk, Beth McCarty, Mai Gong, Ellen Stortz and Charissa West, you were amazing! To Madge Strong and Tom DeMarchi, thank you for the beautiful as well as useful flags. To Ken Brown and H. Bruce Smith, thank you for getting up at the crack of dawn to put the flags around at the different garden locations. In addition to the overwhelming support of the individuals mentioned above we would like to acknowledge the generous support of a few local businesses. These kind businesses came through with such a giving, generous spirit and I hope residents of Ukiah will remember them when doing business locally. Thank you to the Himalayan Café and Café Med for providing the most delicious treats. It is so good to have such great restaurants in Ukiah. Thank you to Albertson's, Safeway and Ukiah Natural Foods for the donation of juice and water. Thank you to Schat's Bakery and Deli for the melt in your mouth cookies. To Blueprints and Copies who did such an amazing professional job printing our garden tour posters and then gave them to us free of charge, we cannot thank you enough. And, last but not least, a huge thank you to Gino and West Coast Promotions who made the most fabulous gardening aprons with Phoenix Certified Hospice of Mendocino County embroi-

dered on them. And finally thank you to the UDJ for the beautiful story and color photo promoting our event and to all of you that supported our cause by purchasing tickets and attending the tour. The wonderful reception and kind words we were greeted with at our Ukiah debut made the day very meaningful. We hope to see you all next year on Sunday, June 3, 2007, when the Phoenix Certified Hospice of Mendocino County's 10th Annual Garden Tour returns to Ukiah. Diane Clerihue Smith Volunteer/Events Coordinator Phoenix Certified Hospice of Mendocino County

Music festival a pleasure

To the Editor: I just spent a wonderful weekend attending the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival in Boonville. Back home, the first question from everyone has been "was it rowdy?" In a word, no. (Unless you consider Sundays In The Park to be unruly!) One can posit many causes for the pacific demeanor of the crowd but I think it was mainly due to the positive nature of the music and the notable absence of public drunkenness. A very nice family event. In addition to bringing many important artists to Mendocino from all over the world, the Festival infused a healthy amount of cash to our local economy. Let's hope that SNWMF returns to our area next year. Mike Turner Ukiah

`A Midsummer Night's Dream' production set to begin July 20

"A Midsummer Night's Dream," a co-production of Mendocino College and Ukiah Players Theatre, will be performed July 20 through August 5 outdoors at the Ukiah Playhouse. This production will be directed by guest artist Brian Lohmann. "A Midsummer Night's Dream" balances a feather-light series of romantic entanglements with brief but profound meditations on the illogical appeals of love, dreams, and the poetry of the play itself. Director Lohmann is giving this "Dream" a Pre-Raphaelite setting for his outdoor cast of twenty. Brian Lohmann has performed improvisation and original solo performance pieces in San Francisco, Seattle, New York, Europe and Australia. He hosted LIFEGAME for TNN television and was a member of Improbable Theater's Off-Broadway run. He directed the hit comedy "Eat And Run" for Ukiah Players theater in 2004. While he is in town directing "A Midsummer Night's Dream" Lohmann is also teaching a five week course on improv at Mendocino College. Follow the courses of distracted lovers, a supernatural king and queen, and a bungling troupe of amateur players ... three storystrands that intersect perfectly over the course of the play. Seating will be outside, on bleachers or on the lawn (it is recommended that audience members bring something soft to sit upon). Performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from July 20 through August 5. Tickets available at Mendocino Book Company and through the Ukiah Players Theatre box office at 462-9226.

LOS ANGELES -- Jose Canseco, making his professional return to baseball, has asked to be traded from the minor league San Diego Surf Dawgs after playing one game. Golden Baseball League commissioner Kevin Outcalt said Wednesday that negotiations were expected to be completed soon that would send the former Major League All-Star to the Long Beach Armada. Canseco asked to be traded because his daughter will be spending the rest of the summer living with him, and he will need to be in the Los Angeles area more than he anticipated, Outcalt said. Canseco signed with the Surf Dawgs on June 29 and said he would hit and pitch. He last played professional baseball for the Chicago White Sox in 2001.

MUNICH, Germany -- One more time, Zinedine Zidane stepped up to the penalty spot, 12 yards from another shot at glory for himself and France.

Kings acquire Cloutier

By JOHN NADEL The Associated Press

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Kings made another move in their rebuilding process Wednesday, acquiring goaltender Dan Cloutier from the Vancouver Canucks for two draft picks. Cloutier played in only 13 games with the Canucks, recording an 8-3-1 record with a 3.17 goals-against average, before sustaining a season-ending knee injury on Nov. 20. "I think it's important to have an established goaltender," Kings GM Dean Lombardi said. The Canucks will receive a second-round draft choice next year and a conditional selection in the 2009 draft. Cloutier became expendable when Vancouver acquired goaltender Roberto Luongo from Florida last month, and signed him to a four-year, $27 million contract.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Barry Bonds' personal trainer was held in contempt of court and taken to prison Wednesday for refusing to testify to the federal grand jury investigating the San Francisco Giants' slugger for perjury. Greg Anderson, who served three months in prison after pleading guilty last year for his role in the Bay Area Laboratory CoOperative steroid scandal, was led out of U.S. District Judge William Alsup's courtroom by two deputy U.S. marshals. He will be housed at the Federal Correctional Institution in nearby Dublin, but his stay may be short. That's because Anderson will be set free once the grand jury's term expires, which will occur within weeks, Alsup said. Anderson was initially ordered in March to testify to the grand jury investigating whether Bonds perjured himself when he testified to the original BALCO grand jury in December 2003 that he never knowingly used steroids or other banned performance enhancing drugs. "Every person, even the President of the United States as held by the Supreme Court, has to give testimony," Alsup said in ordering Anderson to prison.

OAKLAND -- Jim Leyland's players were singing and smiling again around the clubhouse tables, exhibiting the kind of exuberance that comes with knowing you are accomplishing something special. Success has been hard to come by for the Tigers organization in recent years, so why not enjoy? Even if it is just early July. All-Star Kenny Rogers won his seventh straight decision against his former club and Craig Monroe hit a two-run homer, leading Detroit over the Oakland Athletics 10-4 Wednesday to avoid a threegame sweep. "We definitely have some pieces to the puzzle that allow us to go out and be a playoffcontending team," Monroe said. Brandon Inge added a solo homer for the Tigers, who have the best record in baseball but had lost three of four following a seven-game winning streak. They have been swept only once this season, April 10-13 by the World Series champion Chicago White Sox. "It's a big win," All-Star catcher Ivan Rodriguez said. "Every win is important.

Oakland played great for two games, then we came back and scored runs early. We're fine, we're OK, we're in good shape." Rodriguez doubled twice among his three hits in the game and scored twice. Carlos Guillen also scored twice, and Chris Shelton hit a two-run single in the second inning to stake Rogers (11-3) to a quick lead. Rogers, headed to his third straight All-Star game next week in Pittsburgh, posted his fourth win in a row overall despite not having his best stuff. He gave up four earned runs and eight hits in 5 2-3 innings, struck out four and walked two. The left-hander is 25-4 in 56 games in Oakland -- including 23-1 in 41 starts at the Coliseum since 1995. He pitched for the A's in 1998-99. He leads all active pitchers with 21 victories against the A's. Tigers second baseman Placido Polanco saved a run with a great leaping stop on a high liner by Jay Payton in the fifth that turned into an inningending double play. Payton, who hurt Detroit in the first two games of the series -- hitting a three-run homer Monday night and driving in two runs including the winning single in the 10th inning of Oakland's 2-1 win Tuesday -- went 0-for-4.

North Ukiah All-Stars pitcher Dylan Lancaster receives congratulations from second baseman Wyatt Heydon after striking out a Youth Coast batter to end the fifth inning Monday night at Bechtol Field.

North Ukiah All-Stars down Youth Coast, 11-10

By RYAN GARNER The Daily Journal

Trading blows like a couple of featherweight prize fighters, the North Ukiah Little League All-Stars captured a thrilling victory over Coast Youth, 11-10, in the District 35 California 9-10 year old baseball tournament Wednesday night at Bechtol Field. Spectators who braved the cold wind were treated to an exciting game, with North Ukiah rallying from a deficit on four separate occasions before right fielder D.J.

Anderson drove in the winning run with a two-out basesloaded single in the bottom of the seventh inning. Already trailing 3-0 in the top of the second with the bases loaded, North Ukiah pitcher Anthony McCarthy walked in two runs, giving Coast Youth a 5-0 lead. Dylan Lancaster replaced McCarthy on the mound, pitching his way out of a jam and giving North Ukiah a chance to gain some momentum. "I didn't think we were going to be able to come back," said Lancaster. North Ukiah not only came back, but took the lead in the bottom of the second, scoring six runs. Two runs had already been walked across the plate when McCarthy drove a threerun triple up the middle, tying the score at five. Wyatt Heydon brought

McCarthy home from third base in the next at bat, pounding a ground ball into right field and giving North Ukiah a 6-5 lead. The lead was short lived however as Youth Coast responded with two runs in the third inning, regaining a one-run lead. North Ukiah countered with two runs in the bottom of the third, taking an 8-7 lead. Lancaster scored on a sacrifice fly by McCarthy, and Nathan Johnson added a run thanks to a single by Paul Steliga. The fourth inning provided a mirror image of the third. Both teams scored two runs and North Ukiah carried a 109 lead into the fifth inning. Like boxers taking a muchneed round of rest, neither team managed to score in the fifth inning, leaving North Ukiah three outs away from

victory heading into the sixth inning. It only seemed fitting that Youth Coast managed to tie the game in the top of the sixth, bunting a runner home from third base, but North Ukiah prevented any further damage with strong defensive play. North Ukiah failed to score in the bottom of the sixth and the game entered extra innings. Youth Coast loaded the bases in the top of the seventh, but Lancaster made an incredible defensive play, stifling an attempt to steal home with a quick throw followed by a swift tag from McCarthy at the plate. "I was already planning for them (Youth Coast) to score, but the kids came through and did a great job," said Steliga. "I knew they had to change

WIMBLEDON, England -- The "Ooohs" and "Aaahs" from an appreciative crowd began during warmups, when Roger Federer volleyed one ball through his legs. His artistry grew more impressive once play began for real. Facing the last man to defeat him on grass, three-time Wimbledon champion Federer quickly turned the Centre Court rematch into a mismatch, beating No. 7seeded Mario Ancic 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 on Wednesday to reach the semifinals. If the score was routine, Federer's play was anything but. Some shots were so sublime that even the Swiss star was

taken aback. "I definitely had a period where it was so good, it was just incredible," said Federer, bidding to become the first man since Bjorn Borg in 1976 to win Wimbledon without dropping a set. "You're not afraid to try anything, you're not afraid to hit the ball hard, you're not afraid to go for aces. That's the sensation you get when you're playing so well. That's exactly what I felt today." Ancic's assessment was more succinct: "He's just Roger. What can you say?" Federer will be joined in Friday's semifinals by two far-less-expected participants. Unseeded Jonas Bjorkman of Sweden eliminated No. 14 Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic 7-6 (3), 4-6, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (7), 6-4 to become, at 34, the oldest Wimbledon semifinalist since

to the knockout phase. The French then defeated Spain and defending champion Brazil to reach the semifinals. Portugal, a 20-1 shot last December, advanced to the World Cup semifinals for just the second time. Eusebio, the hero of Portugal's 1966 run, was on hand as was former French captain Michel Platini, considered by many his nation's greatest player. France's win ended Portugal's 19-game unbeaten streak since a February 2005 exhibition loss at Ireland and coach Luiz Felipe Scolari's 12-game undefeated string in World Cup matches. France also defeated Portugal in the semifinals of the 1984 and 2000 European

Championships. Zidane, the balding hero of the 1998 final, converted the penalty kick one minute after Carvalho and Henry collided about 1 yard into the penalty area, and Uruguayan referee Jorge Larrionda pointed to the penalty spot. Henry was making a cut and their legs hooked, and Scolari and his bench players popped up en masse, furious with the call. Zidane sent the ball just inside the post, with goalkeeper Ricardo Pereira diving to his right but just unable to get a hand on it. It was the first goal Portugal had allowed since the 29th minute of its first-round finale against Mexico. Portugal repeatedly was angry with the calls. Just after Zidane's goal, Portugal wanted a penalty kick with Cristiano Ronaldo went down

in the penalty area trying to reach a Luis cross and claimed he was pushed by Willy Sagnol. When there wasn't a call, a water bottle was kicked on the field in front of Portugal's bench. Portugal's goalkeeper came up to play offense on a corner kick in injury time, leaving an open net. After the final whistle, Figo walked over to the referee, spoke with him, then gave him mock applause. Scolari wagged his finger at the officials as they walked off, and was blocked from getting close to them by a FIFA official. Ronaldo and Zidane were whistled at by each other's fans in the crowd of 66,000 at Allianz Arena. The first 10 minutes were fast-paced, with Deco taking a hard shot from about 20 yards in the fourth minute, and Willy Sagnol

blocking Pauleta from getting to the rebound. Maniche just missed over the bar in the ninth minute with a 30-yard drive off a pretty back flick from Ronaldo. Henry nearly added to the lead three minutes into the second half, with a shot that went off Ricardo's left wrist and spun just wide of the post. Franck Ribery had a shot from the arc about a minute later that Ricardo pushed over the bar. Ronaldo nearly created a tying goal in the 78th, when French goalkeeper Fabien Barthez -- another of the 1998 heroes -- let his 30-yard free kick bounce off his arms and up in front of the goal. Luis Figo, another world player of the year, had an open header that he sent over the bar.

Look out for Leipheimer

American cyclist emerging as favorite at Tour de France

By JOHN LEICESTER The Associated Press

S A I N T- Q U E N T I N , France -- In a sport ruled for so long by Lance Armstrong, fellow American Levi Leipheimer is hardly a household name. In the next two weeks of the Tour de France, he might become a little more familiar. The consistently high-performing Butte, Mont., native has reason to fancy his chances of becoming Armstrong's heir: Of the 172 racers still left in cycling's showpiece race that lost top contenders to doping allega-

tions only four have ever finished above Leipheimer -- and one of those is now his teammate. Leipheimer finished comfortably in the main pack in Wednesday's fourth stage, won by Australian sprinter Robbie McEwen with a remarkable final burst of speed. Tom Boonen of Belgium kept the overall lead, proudly wearing the yellow jersey on home turf. Leipheimer, who is 27th overall, admits that it is still early days in the three-week race and that a surprise winner could emerge before the finish in Paris on July 23. "Someone could pop up and do really well," he said after Wednesday's stage four, where he accomplished one

of his top priorities for the fast and dangerous first week: staying safe. Of having been beaten by so few riders in this year's field, he said: "That's the past, and this is a different year and riders get stronger and more experience." When asked, Leipheimer names three riders who placed above him in the three Tours he's finished: Spaniard Carlos Sastre of Team CSC, the Discovery Channel's Portuguese climber Jose Azevedo and T-Mobile racer Andreas Kloeden, a friend and teammate of Jan Ullrich, who was among nine riders barred before the start because of doping allegations. But Leipheimer is forget-

ting a fourth: his Gerolsteiner teammate Georg Totschnig. The Austrian finished seventh at the 2004 Tour, two spots above Leipheimer. Leipheimer's spotty memory is perhaps not accidental. At some point on this Tour, he may have to shelve his own ambitions and ride in support of Totschnig if the team decides that the Austrian has the best chance to win. For the moment, the squad says that both are team leaders and the decision on who is in the best position to ride for the Tour crown will be judged on Saturday's long time trial and their performances during the tough climbs of the Pyrenees and Alps.

their pitcher in the seventh so we had a good chance to score." Tension mounted in the bottom of the seventh and North Ukiah looked confident, loading the bases with only one out. A quick ground ball made its way towards second base and McCarthy crossed the plate safely, sending the North Ukiah team racing onto the field in jubilation. However, the umpire ruled that McCarthy never touched home plate and called him out on the play, giving North Ukiah the bases loaded with two outs. Anderson drove a pitch into center field, scoring

Heydon from third base and giving North Ukiah the victory. "He pitched slow, so I knew I could get a hit," Anderson said, dismissing any notions of pressure or nervousness. "Their pitcher was a little wild early on, but he regained control and started throwing strikes," said North Ukiah manager Glen Steliga, heaping praise on his own pitcher's gutsy performance. "He (Lancaster) did a great job coming into a tough spot and just got better as the game went on." North Ukiah earned a berth in the semifinal of the District 35 9-10 year old baseball tournament with the victory. The semifinal match will take place Saturday morning at 11 a.m. at Bechtol Field. ent grass-court player than he was then," said Ancic, whose serve-and-volley skills carried him to the Wimbledon semifinals two years ago. "It's very hard to say, 'Be aggressive. Attack him.' Because if you're just a little bit off with the speed of the ball (on the) approach, you're passed." Federer finished with more than twice as many winners (35) as unforced errors (17). He broke Ancic four times, matching the total of service games lost by the Croat through the first four rounds. During one stretch, Federer won 30 of 34 points, including 14 straight, on his own serve. Yet numbers don't do justice to Federer's flair. He flicked passing shots right through tiny spaces left uncovered by the 6-foot-5 Ancic. Federer broke in the second set's opening game with the help of a backhand hit so forcefully Ancic stumbled to his knees when he tried to volley. Federer broke in the third set's opening game by returning a 130 mph serve right at the feet of a charging Ancic, whose half-volley found the net.

Judge denies bond for 6 accused of Sears Tower terror plot

MIAMI (AP) -- A federal judge denied bond Wednesday for six men accused of plotting to blow up Chicago's Sears Tower and other federal buildings. The six, who have pleaded not guilty, were arrested June 22 in Miami as part of an undercover FBI sting. They are accused of seeking to support what they thought was an al-Qaida operative's effort to bomb FBI buildings in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Washington. A seventh man arrested in the case and charged in Atlanta was also being held without bond. U.S. Magistrate Judge Ted Bandstra ruled Wednesday that the men in Miami posed too great a risk to the community to be released. "The charges against each of the defendants are serious charges and constitute counts of violence," Bandstra said, adding that it was "not relevant that the plans appear to be beyond the abilities of the defendants." Officials say the group's ringleader, Narseal Batiste, 32, approached an acquaintance and asked the man to put him in touch with someone in the Middle East who might be able to finance their plan. The acquaintance alerted the FBI, which helped connect Batiste with a man pretending to be an al-Qaida contact, officials said. They said that contact had the men swear an oath of allegiance to the terrorist group, but the men never had explosives or actual contact with the terrorist network. In addition to Batiste, the Miami defendants in the case are Stanley Grant Phanor, Patrick Abraham, Naudimar Herrera, Burson Augustin and Rothschild Augustin. The man charged in Atlanta, Lyglenson Lemorin, was scheduled to be moved to Miami. Each of the men faces four counts: two counts of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization, and one count each of conspiracy to destroy buildings by explosives and sedition against the U.S. government. The counts carry maximum sentences of between 15 and 20 years. Several relatives of the men have denied that they were violent. They described the defendants as deeply religious men who studied the Bible and Islam.

GOP holds unusual hearings on immigration, border issues

By ELLIOT SPAGAT Associated Press Writer

No dice: NJ casinos close their doors, victims of state budget stalemate

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) -- New Jersey's casinos ushered the last of the gamblers away from slot machines and tables Wednesday, and janitors locked the doors behind them as a state government shutdown claimed its latest victims. In the first mass closure in the 28-year history of Atlantic City's legalized gambling trade, all 12 casinos were dark. Gov. Jon S. Corzine addressed the Legislature at the Statehouse Wednesday morning, defending his position as a stalemate over the state budget entered its fifth day with no deal in sight. Corzine wants to raise the state sale tax from 6 percent to 7 percent to close a $4.5 billion state budget gap; lawmakers oppose the tax increase, estimated to cost the average New Jersey family $275 per year. When the Legislature missed its July 1 deadline to pass a state budget because of the dispute, Corzine ordered the government shut down. "It is deplorable that the people of this state are left in such a painful position," Corzine told the Legislature Wednesday. "The people of New Jersey have every right to be angry." The closure of the Atlantic City casinos is a particularly hard hit. They have a $1.1 billion payroll, and the state takes an 8 percent cut -- an estimated $1.3 million a day.

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- A Republican-led House panel held unusual national hearings on immigration Wednesday, spotlighting differences with President Bush's proposed election-year overhaul that includes a guest worker program and legal status for some who are in the country illegally. In a subcommittee meeting at a San Diego Border Patrol station, Republicans tried to focus on the potential for terrorists to enter the United States through Mexico. "Immigration reform must be national security reform," said Rep. Ed Royce, RFullerton, chairman of the House International Relations Subcommittee on International Terrorism and Nonproliferation. "We live in an age when dedicated terrorists want to hit us as hard as they can," Royce said. Democrats sought to use the platform to portray GOP immigration and border policies as failures. "This is a charade," said Rep. Bob Filner, whose Imperial Beach district includes the patrol station. "It's a cover-up for the fact that they can't produce a bill and they can't secure our borders." Rep. Brad Sherman of Sherman Oaks, the panel's ranking Democrat, blasted the hearings as "designed to whip up public opinion." About 200 people filled the hearing room. And overflow crowd stood outside under a tent and watched on a TV. Some wore T-shirts with the slogan "Stop Illegal Immigration Now. Ask Me How."

"When they have anything like this, we have to come to show our anger at what is going on," said demonstrator Jennifer Reynolds, 38. Along a nearby road, about 75 other activists rallied in support of immigration. A mariachi band played beside a row of wooden crosses activists planted in memory of people who died attempting to cross the border. The Rev. Art Cribbs, pastor of the Christian Fellowship Congregational church in San Diego, blamed politicians for poor economic policies that pit middle-class Americans against migrant workers. "We are being played one against the other," he said. Inside, Republicans and Democrats grilled Darryl Griffen, chief patrol agent for the Border Patrol's San Diego sector, on what they considered shortcomings in border enforcement. Griffen agreed with San

Diego-area Republican Rep. Darrell Issa's characterization of smuggling cartels as "working in a quasi-paramilitary fashion" and capable of moving terrorists or "dirty bombs." Asked by Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Los Angeles, what the Border Patrol needed, Griffen listed a remote video surveillance system, tunnel detection technology and more personnel with adequate equipment. Meanwhile, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter, RPa., hosted a hearing in Philadelphia about a need for foreign workers. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg told the gathering the economy of the country's largest city and the entire nation would collapse if illegal immigrants were deported en masse. He encouraged Congress to offer those in the country illegally

an opportunity to earn permanent status. "No wall or army can stop hundreds of thousands of people each year," Bloomberg said. House GOP leaders called the hearings last month after the Senate in May passed an immigration reform bill, backed by Specter, that includes a guest worker program and a path to citizenship for millions in the country illegally. A separate Houseapproved bill focuses only on enforcement. Democrats initially considered boycotting the hearings but decided to treat them as a platform to assail an enforcement-only approach to immigration reform, according to Sherman. The panel that met in San Diego was set to meet again Friday in Laredo, Texas, another border city. Republicans on the panel include Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado, a leading voice for a crackdown on illegal immigration, and Rep. Peter King of New York, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, who broke with the White House on immigration. Republican-led House committees will hold hearings outside Washington in midJuly on making English the nation's official language, and how enforcement of immigration laws affects American workers. A hearing the week of Aug. 14 in Arizona will focus on costs to local and state governments "caused by an unsecured border." Associated Press Writers Allison Hoffman in San Diego and Kimberly Hefling in Philadelphia contributed to this report.

Navy up against environmentalists before Hawaii sonar exercises

HONOLULU (AP) -- While the Navy was staging war games and hunting down "enemy" submarines with sonar off the island of Kauai two summers ago, more than 150 lost and disoriented whales were swimming chaotically in the shallows of Hanalei Bay. That mass stranding was a scene neither the Navy nor environmentalists want to see repeated as 40 ships from eight countries return to the islands this month for the world's largest international maritime war games. But the two sides agree on little else, including whether sonar was to blame for that incident. The continuing dispute highlights a deep divide over how to best protect marine mammals while safeguarding the nation's defenses. This week, environmentalists won a temporary restraining order to stop the Navy from using a high-intensity sonar during this year's Rim of the Pacific 2006 exercise, which had scheduled sonar use to start Thursday. The federal judge's order Monday came just days after the Defense Department granted the Navy a six-month exemption from certain federal laws protecting marine species to allow use of the "mid-frequency active sonar." Environmentalists had argued that the exemption was aimed at circumventing their lawsuit. The Navy's failure to take a "hard look" at the environmental impact of war games was an "arbitrary and capricious" violation of the National Environmental Policy Act, U.S. District Judge Florence-Marie Cooper wrote in granting the restraining order. Cooper ordered the two sides to meet to discuss mitigation measures in an effort to avoid further litigation. She also scheduled a hearing for July 18 on whether to replace the temporary restraining order with a preliminary injunction.

Doctors have proof that man's brain rewired itself after car crash

Associated Press

Doctors have their first proof that a man who was barely conscious for nearly 20 years regained speech and movement because his brain spontaneously rewired itself by growing tiny new nerve connections to replace the ones sheared apart in a car crash. Terry Wallis, 42, is one of the few people known to have recovered so dramatically so long after a serious brain injury. He still needs help eating and cannot walk, but his speech continues to improve and he can count to 25 without interruption. Wallis' sudden recovery happened three years ago at a rehabilitation center in Mountain View, Ark., but doctors said the same cannot be hoped for people in a persistent vegetative state, such as Terri Schiavo, the Florida woman who died last year after a fierce right-to-die court battle. Nor do they know how to make others with less serious damage, like Wallis, recover. "Right now these cases are like winning the lottery," said Dr. Ross Zafonte, rehabilitation chief at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, who was not involved in the research. "I wouldn't want to overenthuse family members or folks who think now we have a cure for this."

STATELINE, Nev. (AP) -- A bear cub drew a crowd of spectators at a Lake Tahoe neighborhood as it munched on barbecue-chicken-and-jalapeno pizza in the back seat of a vintage red Buick convertible. It also apparently washed it down with a swig of a Jack Daniel's mixer, some vodka, and a beer taken from a cooler, the vehicle's owner said. About 30 people watched the cub lumber around a parking lot on Sunday before it homed in on the car and the spicy pizza on the floor. The bruin was unfazed by the car's horn the blew nonstop as the cub pressed the seat into the steering wheel. "The bear was loping along in the parking lot and then decides to get inside the car," said resident Jerry Patterson. The owner of the car, David Ziello of South Lake Tahoe, said the bruin didn't cause any damage, but slopped cheese and jalapenos on the seats and floor. Carl Lackey, a biologist with the Nevada Department of Wildlife, said up to two dozen bears live in the Kingsbury region near the south shore of Lake Tahoe. They come for food from Dumpsters and people who leave it in the open, said Lackey, who tracks and relocates bears on the Nevada side of the Tahoe basin. Lackey warned visitors and residents against keeping food inside their vehicles. ------ AMERICAN FORK, Utah (AP) -- American Fork keeps getting bigger. The Utah County community is the biggest city in the country with "America" in its name, according to a U.S. Census report. The city north of Provo has grown to 22,387 people, making it the largest on the U.S. map to feature the name "America." American Canyon, Calif., was second with 13,887 people, followed by American Falls, Idaho, population 3,985, according to census figures released last week. From 1990 to 2000, American Fork grew by more than 6,000 people. It was originally named Lake City because of its proximity to the northern shores of Utah Lake, but the name was changed in 1860 to avoid confusion with Salt Lake City to the north. It was renamed American Fork, after the river that runs from American Fork Canyon to Utah Lake. "I think it's well named," mayor Heber Thompson said. "There's a concept there. It's strongly American because we want to preserve our heritage and values. I think that's a strong ethic." ------ LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Meteorologists at the National Weather Service office in Hastings are feeling lucky this year. The 30-county area they serve in central Nebraska and north-central Kansas hasn't had a confirmed tornado for the first six months of this year. That hasn't happened since 1950. There were two years that came close, 1966 and 1981, when a single tornado was reported during the first half of each year. "It's quite unusual," said Steve Kisner, warning coordination meteorologist in the Hastings office. "We're glad Mother Nature is keeping everybody safe -- again showing the unpredictability of the weather." Between five and 10 tornadoes usually hit the office's coverage area between Jan. 1 and June 30, Kisner said. The weather service has calculated there's a 3-1 chance a tornado will occur in Nebraska during this period. Tornadoes are especially common in the 30-county area because they are in the northern part of Tornado Alley, a tornado-prone region stretching from West Texas to North Dakota. ------ OLD FORT, N.C. (AP) -- Independence Day didn't have its usual bang here after someone stole about 250 pounds of fireworks. "It's kind of disheartening that someone would do that, and they did it at the last minute, so we couldn't get any to replace them," said Garland Norton, mayor of the town of about 1,000 people. The $3,000 worth of fireworks were stolen Monday from the Wastewater Treatment Plant, where they were held in a shipping container for use in a fireworks show. "All they left was what we would use for the grand finale -- about a minute's worth of fireworks," Norton said Tuesday evening. "They knew what they were doing. They got the better stuff."

Seven green sea turtles gain independence on the Big Island

By KARIN STANTON For The Associated Press

KOHALA COAST, Hawaii -- Before some 800 onlookers, seven young green sea turtles were taken from nearby saltwater ponds where they had been raised and ferried individually on a white mesh stretcher toward the surf. It was Turtle Independence Day on a Big Island beach. Measuring up to nearly 3 feet in diameter, the turtles gave a couple of final fin flips or a quick look back at the shore before heading off from the coast fronting Mauna Lani Resort, headed toward their new life adventures. Since 1989, Oahu's Sea Life Park has been providing young turtles to be raised in the ponds and, once they reach the age of 2 or 3, to be set free on July 4. The event includes educational booths, games, food and a special appearance by a Teenage Ninja Turtle. The Lague family from Minneapolis enjoyed an early lunch after visiting several booths and stopping at the face-painting table. "I've seen turtles before but not sea turtles. We don't have

A generation ago, green sea turtles were hunted for sport and restaurant dinner menus. But in 1978, the turtle was added to the federal endangered species list, making it crime to kill or harass them.

sea turtles," said Sydney, 9, as she sported a blue turtle painted on her cheek. "I learned how they swim with their fins up and down. It's kind of like they are flying." Parents Julie and Jude said they appreciated the opportunity to show their children that caring for the environment and wildlife can have a positive impact. "Conservation does work. To see turtles come back shows it does happen," Jude Lague said. "Just for the kids to see it means everything." Renato Lenzi, general manager at Sea Life Park, said the annual event is an important step in raising awareness and educating people about the endangered green sea turtle. "Remember, they are messengers," he told the crowd. "This delicate environment needs our help. Now, everyday is Fourth of July for these turtles." Lenzi said he was pleased the day was geared toward children. "It's nice to see the kids get so excited to see the turtles," he said. "They are one of the most important reasons we do this." A generation ago, green sea turtles were hunted for sport and restaurant dinner menus. But in 1978, the turtle was added to the federal endangered species list, making it a crime to kill or harass them. While the number of green sea turtles is rebounding, Lenzi said the task in not complete. "They are on the verge of a recoup, but there's still a lot to learn and find out," Lenzi said. "You can only protect them if you know them." Mauna Lani has nurtured more than 100 turtles before releasing them into the ocean. Prior to July 4, the turtles undergo a veterinary check and are fitted with a microchip and external identification tag. The resort also hosts hundreds of school children each year through its cultural and marine programs. On the Net: Mauna Lani Resort cultural programs: Sea Life Park:

Farmers protest as workers bulldoze South Central LA urban farm

By OSKAR GARCIA Associated Press

John Bogner

Leave Nothing to Chance

Vedolla Dance


LOS ANGELES -- Workers began bulldozing what was once a 14-acre urban garden Wednesday as a group of evicted farmers and their supporters protested the developer's latest move just one week before a judge is scheduled to hear a lawsuit over the sale and ownership of the land. The farmers were evicted three weeks ago after property owner Ralph Horowitz alerted farmers he planned to develop the land. For years, neighborhood residents had farmed the site rent free. One protester Wednesday chained himself to a bulldozer and firefighters were called to cut him loose. Another was arrested for lying in front of the bulldozer, said Dan Stormer, a lawyer for the farmers. "What was once a beautiful set of gardens, if this goes

through, will now be a pile of rubble," Stormer said. Rufina Juarez, a spokeswoman for the farmers, said the crowd of 100 was expected to grow as word spread. "More people are coming," she said. Farmers have vowed to fight the development plan, but have been unable to negotiate a deal with landowner Ralph Horowitz. "We've been trying to have mediation with Mr. Horowitz especially with the upcoming court trial," said Fernando Flores, a volunteer with the farmers. "He's just been refusing the mediation." The lawsuit contests the sale of the land to Horowitz, which Stormer called unlawful and "essentially a gift of almost $10 million to Mr. Horowitz." A telephone call to Horowitz Wednesday was not immediately returned.

Abused wife needs help fast, keep trying

Dear Annie: My friend, "Giselle," has a husband who is emotionally and physically abusive. At the moment, Giselle has a black eye, a huge gash on her arm and a red mark around her neck. She's told me story after story of his abuse, which has gone on for six years. And did I mention he does this in front of their 2-year-old daughter? I finally hit rock bottom with my tolerance and told Giselle if she doesn't do something to get her child out of this sick relationship, I will. She's begged me not to tell anyone, but I worry. I told her I am no longer going to her house, and I have a hard time remaining friends with her while she stays with this abusive man. Her family has bribed her with money to leave her husband, promising to support her and the child. But she defends him, saying, "He wasn't feeling good that day," or "He was aiming for the wall when he punched me and

didn't mean to give me a black eye." I am tired of it. He cheats on her, beats her and nothing is bad enough to be a deal breaker. She's only 25 and the sole breadwinner. I am out of things to say to her. Please help. -Friend in Need Dear Friend: The dynamic between a victim and abuser is complicated. Giselle's selfesteem is so low that she believes she is at fault, that she doesn't deserve better, and that her life would be worse without him. That's why she makes excuses for his behavior and stays. We know it is frustrating, but please don't abandon her. Call the National Domestic

Violence Hotline ( at 1- 800-799SAFE (1-800-799-7233), and ask what you can do to help. Dear Annie: I have been with my husband, "Dennis," for five years. The first few years were great, sexually. He did everything a woman would want. Then he stopped. Over the past year, he has lost any spark of passion, and sex has become a dull, boring routine. We are intimate once a week, and it lasts less than 10 minutes. I have told Dennis our sex life is boring and I would like variety. I have even bought toys and videos and planned romantic evenings, but he goes out of his way to make sure one of the kids is home, so it doesn't pan out. It's not only the intimacy that is lacking, but also our communication and physical contact. When he kisses me goodbye, I feel like I am being kissed by my grandmother. Dennis says I should be content because he provides for the family and comes home every night. I doubt he will agree to counseling because he thinks he's the best thing that's ever

happened to me. I am losing all interest in him and am considering finding someone else to fill the empty hole in my relationship. He is only 37. I don't know what to do. -- Regretting my Marriage in Oregon Dear Oregon: It may be unrealistic to expect Dennis to continue to romance you at the level he did when you first married. Few men understand how much this can mean to their wives, and even fewer will go to the trouble. Ask him to get a complete physical to rule out any medical problems, and then tell him your marriage is in serious trouble and you want him to come with you for counseling. If he refuses, go without him. Dear Annie: I've been shaving my bikini area for years. I once read an article that said you won't suffer itching, rashes, etc., if you shave in the same direction in which the unwanted hair grows. Since following that advice, I've never had a problem. I thought you might want to share this with your female readers. -- Bare in My Bikini Dear Bikini: Thanks for the tip.

and create credits when the solar system is operating. The solar array -- which will provide DFM Car Stereo with 24,300 kilowatt hours of clean energy each year -- is also environmentally friendly. "It's clean, renewable energy with no greenhouse gas emissions contributing to climate change," Booth said. "If you look at electricity production in California as a whole, that 24,000 kilowatt hours of electricity offsets production of 30,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per year," he said. "I am excited about being the first commercial business in Ukiah to go green," Brodoski said, noting he is also excited about using local contractors to do so. "We want to support our local community in every way. You get fair prices, great service and usually end up working with a friend in the end," Brodoski said, adding, "Every time money goes to Santa Rosa, everybody in Mendocino County loses." Savings and clean energy aside, Brodoski said he went solar because "I wanted people to get the feeling I got when I touched a solar inverter at my son's house, knowing it was generating electricity seven years after its installation."

Work crews install solar panels on the south facing roof of DFM Car Stereo. Brodoski purposely put the inverter boxes to his solar system inside his store where customers can come in, touch them and ask questions about how it all works. He also plans to install a computer monitor which will display a graph showing the solar production for the day.

an informant had witnessed Russell Rexrode being given a mountain lion kitten. According to the informant, Rexrode said he intended to tame the kitten and use it to train his dogs, Shimek testified. Based on that information, Fish and Game wardens and Mendocino County sheriff's deputies served a search warrant on Oct. 17, 2005 for 16311 Old Caspar Railroad Crossing Road to look for cages, traps and catch poles used to handle wildlife.

A search of that address revealed 119 pounds of processed marijuana, 60 marijuana plants, 36 $100 bills, a cage and homemade gauntlets and gloves. Russell and Sara Rexrode have been charged with marijuana cultivation, possession of marijuana for sale, unlawful possession of non-game bird parts and unlawful possession of a mountain lion kitten. Lehan also held the Rexrodes to answer to the special allegation that they were in possession of 35 weapons. The Rexrodes are scheduled to appear at trial on July 18.

along walking trails and roadsides throughout California. The weed has made its way over from Mediterranean countries, specifically Turkey and countries in northern Africa, and is considered the most common weed in the state. "It's not very friendly when the thorns come out and it's an invasive weed," Harper said. "It tends to seed later when heavy rains come, so it has a large seeding." According to the California Department of Food and Agriculture, the yellow starthistle is estimated to cover more than 14 million acres of the 101 million acres of total land here in California and can be found in 56 of 58 counties. The thorny weed is toxic to horses, is a nuisance to hikers, degrades the value of the land it's on and poses major problems to the ecosystem it inhabits. "The yellow starthistle on roadsides causes a major problem," Harper said. "It's a unique kind of plant because it likes disturbed soils and it produces a hard seed and a soft seed. Caltrans tends to mow roadsides after plants are done flowering, and with the yellow starthistle having a nice yellow color and seeding right after the flower dies it usually spreads fairly easily." As of 2002, Monterey County was in first place with just over 1.6 million acres infested with yellow starthistle and Mendocino and Siskiyou counties both had

just over 1 million acres. Ventura County saw the largest jump in acreage infested from five acres in 1985 to 250,000 acres in 2002, and the ability to control this weed raises many concerns. "It is controllable to some degree," Harper said. Control methods tried here in Mendocino County include options like sheep grazing, mowing, manual removal, clover or perennial grass reseeding, herbicide and biological control. "We have tried different methods like biological control, but none of them seem to work that well." Harper said. "The first thing should be to dig it out, but that is for when it is in a smaller area. "Once it covers a larger area, it is very difficult to control. Another good thing to do is once you dig up the yellow starthistle, seed some competitive vegetation to take its place and keep it from becoming a nuisance." And some local areas do have control over this pesky plant. "If we see the yellow starthistle we pull it out," said Dr. Robert M. Timm, center superintendent and extension wildlife specialist at the Hopland Research and Extension Center. "We don't have a problem here at the extension center because we deal with them before it becomes a large problem."

He lost two partners during those years, both shot and killed in the line of duty. He said he was drawn to the chaplaincy because he saw the need for it after spending 20 years in a policeman's shoes. "My garbage can has been filled many times," Russell said. Huddleston also has a history with law enforcement. His father was a sheriff's deputy in San Francisco and many other members of his family have worked in law enforcement, including his son-in-law, who is a CHP officer. "I always had interests in that direction because of family ties," Huddleston said. He began his work as a police chaplain in San Francisco, and said many officers there are cut off from their own religious communities because of the distance they must commute for work. When Huddleston moved to Ukiah with his family, he approached the local CHP captain about continuing the program. Russell said he and Huddleston often help each other because each man brings unique past experience to the job. "Ralph's the pastor, I'm the cop," Russell said. Both Russell and Huddleston are members of the International Conference of Police Chaplains, which provides support and training to chaplains around the world and holds annual training conferences on numerous subjects. Any police department that is seeking a chaplain can contact the ICPC for information.

time with an increase in the percentage of old people," said Bill Butz, president of the Population Reference Bureau, a Washington think tank. Countries have lost people because of wars, disease and natural disasters but never -- at least in modern history -- because women stopped having enough children, Butz said. The U.S. is the fastest growing industrialized nation in the world, adding about 2.8 million people a year. That's a little less than 1 percent.

Patricia Archer, 49, of Carlotta, was killed when her 1999 Ford overturned and struck a redwood tree off of Highway 101 north of Weott at 5:06 p.m. Tuesday. Todd Rowan, 43, of Fort Bragg, suffered major injuries when he struck a driveway bridge abutment in a 1987 Mazda on Monday. According

to CHP reports, Rowan struck the abutment after his vehicle drifted off the road and into a drainage ditch on Ward Avenue west of State Route 1. Rowan was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, according to CHP reports. In 2005, nine people were arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Mendocino County during the Fourth of July holiday weekend and one traffic fatality was reported.
