PENSACOLA, FLA. -- The schedule for the GOP's Florida Victory Rally said President Bush would be introduced to the crowd by the Republican Party's nominee for governor, Charlie Crist. The president was there, but Crist was not. And the White House signaled its unhappiness. With Bush receiving poor marks in opinion polls, some Republican candidates have indicated that they do not want to appear with him in public. Crist's campaign said that was not the case in this instance. It said the candidate had no need to spend his final campaign day in Pensacola, the site of yesterday's rally, because voters there tend to be conservative and already support him. Still, Karl Rove, Bush's chief political strategist, made a remark to reporters about Crist's decision to appear in Palm Beach and other cities instead.

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Growing up in this industrial town, the home of Little League baseball, brothers David and Scott Crist shared an unremarkable childhood.They slept in a green bedroom with twin beds in a tidy stone-and-shingle house. Attended Sunday school at Calvary United Methodist Church. Played basketball on a church league team. And befriended a wild duck, naming it Daffy and keeping is as a pet.Though the brothers grew apart as teens -- younger Scott known as scholarly and kind, David called unpredictable -- few in Williamsport were prepared last year when authorities said they had solved a 1982 crime.

Count the Votes may again become Florida's unofficial motto if the state's delegation is not seated at the Democratic National Convention this summer. The decision by the Democratic Party to ostracize the delegations from Florida and Michigan (after both states bucked party rules and moved up their primaries) has the locals here wondering what they've got to do to get some representation in the tight race between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Wednesday, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm issued a joint declaration calling on the national Democratic Party leaders to do something to assure the two states participate in the party's nominating process.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- In what supporters called a historic change, Gov. Charlie Crist and the state clemency board agreed yesterday to restore voting rights to potentially hundreds of thousands of convicted felons. The decision overhauls Florida's Jim Crow-era laws permanently stripping felons who finish their sentences of their civil rights unless they can persuade the governor and Cabinet to restore them - a cumbersome, often impossible, process. Crist administration officials said the changes would immediately affect more than 30,000 pending applications.

When The Racing Times shut down more than a week ago, the end came almost as dramatically, and nearly as quickly, as the mysterious death of its founder, Robert Maxwell.The late media baron was found, floating face up Nov. 5 in the Atlantic Ocean off the Canary Islands. He had either fallen, jumped or, some suspect, been pushed off his yacht.It was a James Bondian sort of demise, with a Dick Francis twist.Three months later, almost to the day, Maxwell's 10-month-old U.S racing paper ceased publication.

BEAR BRYANT had to do it at Alabama in the late 1960s after suffering back-to-back five-loss seasons. Joe Paterno had to do it as recently as 2000 when Penn State finished 5-7. It's tough slipping when you're a legend. It's even tougher when you're a legend with age. Florida State football coach Bobby Bowden, 73, has rolled up his sleeves and decided to fight. He is coming into this season with a chip on his shoulder about as big as the one he had when he first started at FSU 28 seasons ago. There is an integrity issue at stake, which adds some spice to the Seminoles' game against Maryland on Saturday night in Tallahassee, Fla. After a two-year slump that included a 9-5 record last year, and several off-the-field issues this summer, there are some who believe Bowden has lost control of his program.
