There were no immediate reports of deaths, but fire officials in Washington said there were at least some injuries. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake registered magnitude 5.8 and was centered about 40 miles northwest of Richmond, Virginia. Two nuclear reactors at the North Anna Power Station, in the same county as the epicenter, were automatically taken offline by safety systems, said Roger Hannah, a spokesman for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The earthquake came less than three weeks before the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, and in both Washington and New York it immediately triggered fears of something more sinister than a natural disaster. President Obama, who is vacationing on Marthas Vineyard, led a conference call Tuesday afternoon on the earthquake with top administration officials, including the administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. At the Pentagon in CMH board rejects indigent care plan M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS An apparent resolution between competing boards at Citrus Memorial hospital over using property tax money for hospital operations ran into a wall Monday night. The Citrus Memorial Health Foundation board, without a vote, refused an offer by the Citrus County Hospital Board of Trustees that could have led to paying up to $1.3 million for charity care at the hospital. Instead, foundation board members echoed attorney Jim Kennedys position that the offer was nothing more than a way for trustees to view hospital financial records with little hope of receiving a dime. I dont think this document is worth the paper its printed on, Kennedy said. I dont think these people have any intention of paying us. Kennedy rejected the trustees claim that property tax money is meant for indigent care only. Its a complete fallacy made up by these people, he said, as trustee Debbie Ressler and Citrus County Hospital Board of Trustees attorney Bill Grant sat a few feet away. Grant said Tuesday that the foundation rejected $1.5 million in funding last year only to accept it two months later. This is a game theyre playing, Grant said. Theyre the ones with reckless disregard for peoples money. The board of trustees is the taxing authority for Citrus Memorial Health System. The foundation claims trustees are hoarding tax money meant for the hospital and has filed a breachof-contract lawsuit claiming more than $10 million is owed. Trustees say they are willing to make payments, but only after reviewing hospital records to verify patient indigent claims. Foundation general counsel Clark Stillwell said the proposed agreement did not guarantee any payment from the trustees. If you ask me how much theyre going to pay, I cant tell you, Stillwell said. It could be $10. It could be $1 million. Foundation board member David Langer said he couldnt support the proposal. Youd have to be an absolute moron to sign an agreement like this, Langer said. Foundation board member Joe Brannen agreed, adding: I think theres bad intent shown here. Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at (352) 563-3228 or mwright@chronicle online.com.

Bill Nelson presents the Bronze Star to Jaimie Petellat Tuesday afternoon for actions her father, U.S. Army Specialist Fourth Class Donald Kelly, took while in combat April 3, 1968. The presentation was made in the Board of County Commissioners chambers. A photo of Donald Kelly is displayed in the background. N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS Jaimie Petellat knew her dad was in the Army during the Vietnam War, but she never knew he was a war hero. Forty-three years after Army Specialist Four Donald Kelly risked his life to save the lives of his fellow soldiers who had come under North Vietnamese attack, he received the Bronze Star posthumously, the fourthhighest ground combat valor award given to members of the United States military. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson presented Petellat with her late fathers medal at the Citrus County Board of Commissioners meeting Tuesday. Your dad obviously was a hero, Nelson said. He clearly made an impression on the people he worked with and served with. He saved their lives, and his story has made an impression on a lot of us. Petellat, who lives in Citrus Springs, said her dad, who died about five years ago, was soft-spoken and humble and never talked about his time in the Army. Nelson said thats common of veterans and that he often gets calls from veterans children or grandchildren saying they think there may have been an act of heroism and no medals were ever awarded. In Kellys case, it was his former lieutenant who served with him in the Charlie Battery, 2nd Battalion, 17th Artillery Regiment. Now a retired colonel in Tennessee, he contacted Nelsons office. Nelson said, Col. Sadler wrote us his eyewitness account: On April 3, 1968, during a North Vietnamese attack against our battery, I personally witnessed Heroic actions likely saved teens life S ANDRA F REDERICK Staff WriterHOMOSASSA Without giving thought to his own safety, Tony Williams jumped into the murky water at Marker 19 near the mouth of the Homosassa River and dove underneath a capsized boat. He knew there was a missing person, and his instincts told him every second was a matter of life or death. I saw what looked like a pile of towels at the back of the back near the engines, the 42-year-old Homosassa resident said Tuesday afternoon. I realized it was the missing boy so I grabbed him and pulled him into this pocket of air underneath the boat. His face was blue and he wasnt moving. That action probably saved 18year-old Wade Phillips life. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said Tuesday the boat accident that took place around 4 p.m. Sunday is still under investigation. We are in the stage of talking to all the witnesses and those onboard the boat, spokeswoman Karen Parker said. It will take about two weeks for it to be completed. It is unknown at this point if alcohol was a factor in the accident. Williams, Leesa Frazier, owner of Headline Hair Studio in Homosassa, and two friends were scalloping Sunday afternoon when they decided to call it a day and head back to shore early. It was low tide, so they took their time, grilling hamburgers toward the back of the 20-foot pontoon boat. A pleasure boat filled with people passed them, causing a wave that rocked the boat, something Frazier RIC BUSH /Special to the Chronicle Tony Williams, right, and Leesa Frazier saw the tragic accident in Homosassa. Williams rescued one of the victims. Mans daughter accepts his Bronze Star, awarded posthumously Hurricane Irene weakensMIAMI Irene has lost some of its punch and is now a Category 1 hurricane. But the storm remains likely to regain strength and become a major hurricane, and it could threaten the U.S. The National Hurricane Center said Tuesday afternoon that Irene had maximum sustained winds of 90 mph as it lashed the Turks and Caicos Islands. Updated projections had the storm moving farther east than before, but models still show Irene could make landfall in North Carolina over the weekend. Irenes center was 50 miles southsouthwest of Grand Turk Island. It was moving west-northwest at 9 mph. For more on Hurricane Irene, see Page A5. Bill Grant Hospital Board of Trustees attorney.

L ILLYR OCKWELL The News Service of Florida Florida school districts are flooded with applications for new charter schools, motivated by several new laws that make it easier to start traditional and virtual charters. Nearly 100 more new charter school applications have been filed for the 201213 school year than were filed at the same time last year, a 38 percent increase, according to statistics from the Department of Education. Statewide, school districts have received 348 charter school applications. Last year, districts received 252 applications. A charter doesnt get automatic approval; the district must approve charter applications. Driving the increase are two new laws passed by the Florida Legislature this year that promote charter school expansion. One law makes it easier for existing charter operators with high school grades to open new schools or expand grade levels. The other law creates virtual charters, in which a charter school can offer online courses. Richard Page, the vice president of development for Florida-based Charter Schools USA, said the popularity of charter schools among parents and the new laws are driving interest in opening them. Page said the law incentivizes high-performing charter schools to open up new schools. This doesnt prevent, however, other charter school operators from submitting applications. Charter schools are a hybrid between public schools and private schools. They are supported with taxpayer dollars, but are run by private and sometimes forprofit entities. Charters fall under the oversight of school districts, but dont have to meet the same rules and regulations as traditional public schools. Specialist Donald Kelly commit several heroic acts, saving the lives of his fellow soldiers. Sadler further described how Kelly repeatedly exposed himself to hostile fire while defending the battery command post where the wounded battery commander was being treated. As Kelly attempted to organize the batterys defense, the North Vietnamese army let out another round of fire. Kelly left the safety of where he was barricaded and engaged the enemy at close range, killing several and taking enemy fire himself. Despite being badly wounded in his right arm and his M-16 destroyed, Kelly bandaged his arm and looked for another weapon to use. Later that night he used his uninjured hand to load weapons and hand them to others who could still shoot. There are so many of these stories that never get told, Nelson said. Its typical of these men and women to keep quiet about their heroism. Petellat said the family didnt discover this part of her dads military service until three years ago. Kelly had kept his military records, including his Purple Heart, in a safe deposit box. Because the box was never claimed after his death, it was put up for auction. The person who purchased the box found Kellys Purple Heart and the citation for the Bronze Star. Although Petellat is unclear as to how the items were returned to her mother, who now lives in Georgia, and also about the connection with Col. Sadler in Tennessee, she said shes glad that her dad finally got to be honored for his service. I was shocked when I found out what he had done, she said, but it fit his personality. Thats basically the type of man he was. Donald Kelly, who lived in Marion County, was a family man. A juvenile probation officer, he worked hard and loved people. He was really, really nice, said his 12-year-old granddaughter, Victoria Wood. I only knew him when I was younger and I never knew this about him, she said after the awards presentation. After reading his citation, all I can say is that he was one tough man, said commissioner John J.J. Kenney. He was an extremely valorous individual, and it doesnt matter what uniform you wear valor doesnt come in a uniform; it comes in a man. His family can be extremely proud of him. As a fellow Vietnam vet, Im glad to see a brother get the recognition he deserves.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicle online.com or (352) 5642927.

An important visitor was in town, and board members didnt want to miss him. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson sat down for an hour-long visit with 14 elected Citrus County officials at the Inverness Government Center. Nelson, D-Fla., said he was making similar stops across the state to bring local officials up to date on significant challenges in Washington and to share his ideas for improving the Florida economy. Nelson said he is frustrated by the political gridlock that nearly allowed the government to default on its debt, but also optimistic that the fallout will create fair budget cuts and a simpler tax system. This is a monumental time to do something serious about the deficit, he said. Nelson said the federal government freed up billions of dollars in lowinterest loans for small businesses. He said Floridas share will be about $1 billion. Nelson said he supported the federal stimulus bill that brought $2.2 billion to Florida for education, saving 26,000 teacher jobs over two years. None of the economic incentives, however, have had a lasting effect. We tried a number of things that only partially worked, he said. State Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, R-Inverness, said federal programs come with strings attached. Eventually the federal money goes away and were stuck holding the bill, Smith said. Nelson said the debt is a direct result of tax cuts and the costs of wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. He said the prescription drug bill in 2003 significantly increased Medicare costs and the 2008 recession led to the stimulus bill. Nelson said a key to bring the debt under control is to reduce spending and stimulate small businesses. Clerk of Courts Betty Strifler agreed, though she said that the small-business owners she knows feel restrained by government regulation. I hear regulations are destroying their business, Strifler said. Look at every regulation that is imposed on business and do away with most of them. After the meeting, Smith said he wanted Nelson to zero in on proposed program cuts. I want to see specific plans on where to cut, he said. School board member Pat Deutschman said she was impressed with Nelsons explanation of the debt. I had never met him, she said. I thought he was quite clear what the root of the problems really are.

What happened next was something the friends will never forget. We looked up and I said, the boat flipped over, Frazier said. I knew he was out of the channel, in an area where oyster beds pose a danger. We knew we had to get there quickly. Frazier called 9-1-1 and started to throw life jackets and ropes into the water. Also on the boat was Mariann Cornwell, a nurse, and Jamie Roberts, also in the medical field, who starting attending to the injured from the back of the pontoon boat. They performed CPR and calmed the boaters down. Six minutes later a second boat arrived and those aboard pitched in, helping the crash victims. The accident left eight injured and Rob Phillips, the owner and driver of the 39-foot boat, dead. All of the people on the boat were taken to area hospitals; some were treated and released. Wade Phillips, the 18-year-old son of Rob Phillips, was still at Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando on Tuesday afternoon. Williams said he rode with Wade and his mother, April Phillips, to the triage area at the River Haven Marina in the Sea Tow boat. About half way there, he woke up. He kept saying he was tired and I knew I could not let him sleep, Williams said. I talked to him about girls, football, anything I could think of that a teen would want to talk about. Frazier said things happened so fast, that all of four of the friends just kept moving. I am very proud of Tony, she said. He risked his own life to save another. What made it more difficult for Frazier was, she was friends with the Phillips family. Her hair salon was next to Eagle Buick GMC on U.S. 19, a dealership owned by Rob Phillips for more than two decades. Hours later when the emergency was over, Frazier drove her pontoon boat home and a huge dolphin jumped out of the water in front of the boat. It was a sign from Rob, she said with tears streaming down her face. It was him saying thank you for helping his family.

The meeting will be at 10:30 a.m. in the Homosassa Public Library.Animal Services needs to locate dog On Thursday, Aug. 18, a woman was bitten by a stray dog. The dog is described as a medium-size tan dog with short hair. The incident occurred on the corner of West Cardinal Street and Eastern Avenue in Homosassa. If anyone has any information or knows the whereabouts of this dog, please contact Citrus County Animal Services immediately at (352) 746-8400. If the dog is not located, the woman may have to undergo a series of rabies shots. Spring Hill Several injured in school bus crash Authorities said a Tampa Bay area school bus rolled onto its side during a collision with another vehicle. The Florida Highway Patrol reported that 68-year-old Raymond Joseph Lucas was driving the Pasco County school bus Tuesday afternoon when he ran a stop sign. A car that did not have a stop sign hit the bus in the middle of the intersection. The bus had just two passengers, a student on her way to a special program for young mothers and her 2month-old daughter. The bus driver, along with the mother and child, were taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries. The driver of the car, 51year-old Julie Ann Black, was airlifted to a St. Petersburg hospital in serious condition. An FHP report said charges were pending. Bradenton Woman charged with killing puppies Authorities said a southwest Florida woman threw four young puppies against a wall, killing two of them. The Manatee County Sheriffs Office reported 19-yearold Shaniqua Louise Porter was arrested Saturday and charged with two felony counts of torturing an animal with intent to kill and two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals. Porters roommate and another witness told deputies that Porter came home in a rage over the weekend and threw the small dogs at the wall. Jail records show Porter was released Sunday on $2,240 bail. Records didnt show if she had an attorney. A telephone listing could not be found for Porter.Apopka FHP trooper finds downed pilot Authorities pulled a pilot from Lake Apopka after a Florida Highway Patrol trooper spotted his ultralight submerged in the gator-infested water. Sgt. Luis Badia called for help about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday and several agencies responded. They pulled the pilot to safety. The Orlando Sentinel reported the man did not appear injured, but he was taken to a hospital. FHP spokeswoman Kim Montes said it was perfect timing that Badia spotted the plane in the water, because the pilot didnt have a way of calling for help.

The council also approved, with a vote of 4 to 0, an ordinance that allows city residents to water their yards twice a week rather than once. Councilwoman Maureen McNiff was absent from the meeting. The council agreed unanimously to approve the amendment to the flag ordinance, which will express explicitly in the ordinance that one of each of the eight flags defined by the council to be United States Flags will be allowed per city property. The eight flags are the American flag, the POW flag, flags for each of the five military branches and the Florida State flag. Existing restrictions on flag poles in residential areas will still apply to the eight exempt flags. The ordinance was amended at the urging of several citizens and Councilwoman Paula Wheeler to squelch concerns that people would become overzealous with their flag displays if the ordinance changed from the current three flags to an unlimited number. I dont think patriotism or pride in the armed services is based on quantity versus quality, Wheeler said. Citizens also spoke up at the public hearing about proper flag etiquette, ensuring the ordinance directed flag owners to the official U.S. Flag Code.

M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS The heralded partnership that created a criminal justice academy at Withlacoochee Technical Institute will only improve with the addition of firefighter training, Sheriff Jeff Dawsy said Tuesday. Dawsy and Lt. Phil Royal presented an outline of the new Public Safety Academy at WTI to school board members. Dawsy said he hopes to have the first firefighter training class up and running by January. The school district and sheriffs office coordinate academies for law enforcement and corrections officers at WTI. The joint-use academy has operated for about two years, reducing personnel costs for both the school district and sheriffs office, Dawsy said. Dawsys office, which begins oversight of the countys fire services on Oct. 1, is planning to hire a fire training coordinator. Royal, who oversees the criminal justice academy, said adding fire training to the program should come at no cost to the school district. He said he will make sure each class has enough students to cover basic overhead at WTI. Royal said he believes the fire academy will draw students from area counties, or Citrus County residents who find jobs elsewhere. There are hundreds of law enforcement officers and firefighters who live here and work somewhere else, Royal said. We should be just as proud of that as if they were staying here. Board members said they were encouraged that the school district wouldnt be adding costs to its budget. This will have to be a self-sustaining program for a long, long time, board Chairman Bill Murray said. Royal said he plans to return to the school board in a few weeks with budget and program details. Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at (352) 563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com. Dawsy touts public safety training Sheriff: Program at WTI will pay for itself S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterBEVERLY HILLS It was a typical day at Countryside Animal Clinic in Beverly Hills last Tuesday when unexpectedly, the office received a phone call about a sick bird that was found barely alive in a horses water trough. The guy (who brought in the bird) thought it was a falcon, said Dr. Jennifer Hooper, who works at Countryside. But the ailing falcon turned out to be a young barred owl. It was very dehydrated and weak, Hooper said. Dr. Michele Farrar quickly examined the underweight owl, but Dr. Tony Mutchler, who held the large bird of prey during the examination, said there were no signs of trauma to the animal. Were working under the premise that it probably didnt fledge successfully, he said. Its possible the owl was having a hard time hunting and thriving on its own, which caused him to become extremely undernourished. Hooper said the owl, which was a good size, only weighed two pounds. That afternoon, Michele Kline with HOPE Wildlife Rehabilitation Group, a local nonprofit organization that cares for injured, displaced and orphaned native Florida wildlife, came to pick up the owl. Kline said Saturday that the owl was doing just fine. She has him on an emaciation diet and will do some live prey testing with him until he proves ready to be out in the wild. Kline, who volunteers many hours and donates hundreds of dollars to her cause, said it wasnt surprising that the owl was not thriving, since only 25 percent of birds of prey make it to their first birthday. Some have good hunting skills and some dont, she said. Over the next few weeks, Kline plans to introduce her newest visitor to the other owls shes been rehabbing and then eventually release them all together, but its tough to know when the actual release day will be, because it depends on the owls progress. Ill keep them as long as I have to, she said. Chronicle reporter Shemir Wiles can be reached at (352) 564-2924 or swiles@ chronicleonline.com. Rescued owl in recovery Creature found starving, near death in horse trough Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Duke Energy Corp. said that its purchase of North Carolina rival Progress Energy Inc. is on track to close by the end of the year after shareholders of both companies approved it Tuesday. Holders of more than 90 percent of Duke Energys shares voted in favor of the deal, which was valued at $13.7 billion when it was announced in January. More than 95 percent of Progress Energy shares voted at a special shareholders meeting in Raleigh, N.C., on Tuesday were in favor of the merger as well. The combined company would be the biggest electric utility in the U.S. as measured by number of customers, generation capacity and market value. It would have about 7.1 million customers in the Carolinas, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Florida. The company would generate slightly over half of its power with coal, the rest would be generated with a mix of nuclear, natural gas, oil and some renewable resources. State regulators in North Carolina still must approve the deal, however, before it can be completed. Utility mergers can be difficult to complete because local regulators often demand rate reductions or impose other conditions on companies in exchange for approval, forcing the companies to walk away from the deal. North Carolina regulators are scheduled to conduct hearings Sept. 20. The companies have already received approval from some state and federal agencies. Duke, Progess approve merger

The fund set up to compensate victims of last years BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has paid more than $5 billion in claims, the fund administrator said Tuesday. Washington D.C. lawyer Kenneth Feinberg also released a summary of payouts from the $20 billion fund, which was established in August 2010 to help people whose lives and businesses were hurt by the spill. The report says the Gulf Coast Claims Facility had received 947,892 claims from all 50 states and 36 foreign counties. It said 359,441 claims were paid and 430,000 were denied. Some are pending. Others are still coming in. The GCCF has largely succeeded in its primary objective to compensate those individuals and businesses who can demonstrate financial harm due to the Oil Spill, the report says. The compensation program has not been perfect; but several midcourse corrections have been made in an effort to deal with the constructive criticism offered by victims of the spill, public officials, and others. Critics say the claims process has been too slow, difficult to navigate and lacked transparency. The critics include Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood, who sued Feinberg in July to get access to claims filed by coastal residents. Hood says he wants to make the claims process more transparent. The only success Mr. Feinberg has had is in coercing desperate victims of the spill to have to accept whatever was offered, Hood said in a written statement Tuesday.

Associated PressDENVER The strongest earthquake to strike Colorado in more than 40 years shook awake hundreds of people, toppled groceries off shelves and caused minor damage to homes in the southern part of the state and in northern New Mexico. No injuries were reported as aftershocks continued Tuesday. Here we go again, theres another one starting. We got to get out of here, said Garry Ringo, owner of Ringos Super Trading Post in the small town of Segundo, Colo., as bottles on shelves rattled in the background during an interview with The Associated Press. Ringo estimated he lost thousands of dollars worth of liquor and soda. The magnitude 5.3 quake hit at 11:46 p.m. Monday about nine miles southwest of Trinidad, or 180 miles south of Denver, according to the U.S. Geological Surveys National Earthquake Information Center in Golden. It had an estimated depth of 2.5 miles felt in a relatively large area of southern Colorado and northern New Mexico. Las Animas County Sheriff Jim Casias said Colorado authorities were assessing damage and so far had reported a porch collapse and a partially collapsed roof. No injuries had been reported, he said. As I had one lady tell me, Sheriff, maybe the worlds coming to an end. All I mentioned to her is that someday it will, Casias said. Dozens of residents in Trinidad, a town of 9,000 people, and in northern New Mexico called the USGS to report the shaking. Others called from Colorado Springs, Colo., about 130 miles north of the epicenter, said geophysicist Shengzao Chen. Minor aftershocks continued Tuesday in the relatively sparsely populated area that the USGS says is not known for major quakes or active faults. Theresa James, manager of Ringos Super Trading Post, said a small swarm lasting three days hit the area last summer. Segundo is a former coal mining town of about 100 people. USGS geophysicist Jessica Sigala said Mondays earthquake damaged chimneys, cracked walls and knocked items off shelves. Minor rockslides were reported on Colorado Highway 12 and Interstate 25, but both highways remained open, a Las Animas County Sheriffs Office dispatcher said Tuesday. The dispatcher, who would only give her first name as Kristina, said she was working when the earthquake hit near midnight. Everything was shaking, but we had no power loss, she said. I thought maybe a car had hit my house, said 70year-old Trinidad resident Nadine Baca. Then I called my son and he said it was the third (quake) today. Cathy Gutierrez of Raton, N.M., about 20 miles south of Trinidad, told The Associated Press Tuesday that she felt two earthquakes, one around 5:30 p.m. Monday and the big earthquake just before midnight. My bed shook with all my pictures. It just went back and forth. I thought someone hit my house. I ran outside. Weve had some before (earthquakes), but never this strong, Gutierrez said. It was a very scary feeling. Ron Thompson, mine manager with New Elk Mine about 30 miles west of Trinidad, said coal miners 300 to 800 feet underground didnt feel anything but crews above ground and at the company office in Trinidad, where he was at the time, did. Not real exciting, but it got your attention, he said of the shallow quake. The quake was the largest in Colorado since a magnitude-5.3 temblor was recorded in Denvers northern suburbs in 1967, said Paul Earle of the USGS. Colorado is no stranger to earthquakes, but most are small and go unnoticed. According to the USGS, an earthquake in 1882 was the first to cause damage in Denver and is believed to be the largest recorded in the state. That quake was believed to be centered in the Front Range near what is now Rocky Mountain National Park. Its magnitude was estimated to be about 6.6 on the Richter scale. It was felt as far away as Salina, Kansas, and Salt Lake City. Largest Colorado quake since 1967 shakes homes Associated PressMIAMI Officials and residents from Florida to the Carolinas stocked up on supplies, dusted off evacuation plans and readied for the worst as Irene, the first hurricane to threaten the U.S. in three years, churned over tropical waters Tuesday after cutting a destructive path through the Caribbean. Federal officials warned the storm could flood streets and knock down power lines as far north as New England. Irene lost some of its punch Tuesday afternoon and was downgraded to a Category 1 hurricane as it lashed the Turks and Caicos Islands, but the storm remains likely to regain strength and become a major hurricane before making a U.S. landfall. The hurricane has raked the Caribbean and could cause serious problems along the entire Eastern Seaboard, Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator Craig Fugate said Tuesday during a conference call with reporters. Fugate urged people not to become complacent, even though the forecast is still uncertain and the storm may be days from hitting the U.S. We need to remind people, hurricanes are not just a Southern thing. This could be the Mid-Atlantic and the northeast coast, Fugate said. Weve got a lot of time for people to get ready, but we dont have forever. Officials on North Carolinas Ocracoke Island were taking no chances. Tourists were ordered to evacuate Wednesday, while residents were told to be off the island by Thursday, said Tommy Hutcherson, who serves on the local board that issues such orders. Hutcherson, who also owns the Ocracoke Variety Store, said authorities have to issue such orders early because of the limited capacity of the ferries. Still, that doesnt mean everyone will leave. Ill be here, said Hutcherson, a 29-year resident who has ridden out numerous past storms. A lot of the locals will choose to stay. The barrier island is only accessible by boat. It is 16 miles long and mostly undeveloped, with a town at the southern tip. Caitlin Blue, who works at the Kure Beach Fishing Pier, said Tuesday employees were preparing to board up the windows. Thats really all you can do, said Blue, 17. Everybodys a little apprehensive, especially the owner of the pier. This one is supposed to come right down on us. The Kure pier has been rebuilt twice after being destroyed by hurricanes Hazel in 1954 and the double hit in 1996 from Bertha and Fran. Many people already have begun stocking up on essentials such as bottled water, gasoline and plywood for boarding up windows. But on North Carolinas Wrightsville Beach, a popular tourist destination, only a few wispy clouds dotted the sky on a 90-degree day. Bronzed sunbathers strolled around in bathing suits and towels, and traffic was heavy most cars were headed toward the beach, not away from it. Most in the area werent panicking but they were getting ready. Irene was the main topic of conversation at Craft American Hardware, not far from Wrightsville Beach, where people were trooping all day to pick up emergency supplies for the storm. Water, batteries, flashlights and now Im going to get my grocery shopping done, said Sally Godwin, carrying two large jugs of fresh water out of the store with her. I live at the beach, and they always evacuate it the day before. I have to make sure all my little stuffs taken care of. Its possible Irene will make landfall over the North Carolina coast sometime Saturday, then move to the north near the Chesapeake Bay. However, because such projections can be uncertain, its also possible Irene could straddle the coast. Fugate and National Hurricane Center director Bill Read said Irene could cause problems even over open water. New England is particularly vulnerable to heavy rains because the soil is already saturated from summer storms, which could raise the threat of flash flooding. If Irene does move into the Mid-Atlantic area, it could threaten plans for dedicating a memorial to Martin Luther King Jr. Fugate said officials were discussing whether to hold Sundays dedication ceremony. Tens of thousands are expected to attend the event at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Irene had already wrought destruction across the Caribbean, giving a glimpse of what the storm might bring to the Eastern Seaboard. In Puerto Rico, more than a million people were without power, and President Barack Obama declared an emergency there. At least hundreds were displaced by flooding in the Dominican Republic, forced to take refuge in schools and churches. Irene was making its way toward the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands on Tuesday. The prime minister of the Bahamas pleaded with islanders in low-lying areas to seek higher ground, and also urged people to stock up on water, food, flashlights, first aid kits and other supplies. On the Turks and Caicos Islands, residents were putting up hurricane shutters and tourists were retreating to their hotels. On Tuesday afternoon, Irene was about 50 miles south-southwest of Grand Turk Island, moving westnorthwest at 9 mph. Its maximum sustained winds were at 90 mph. In South Carolina, emergency agencies went on alert for what could be the first hurricane to hit there in seven years. This is potentially a very serious hurricane, longtime Charleston Mayor Joseph P Riley Jr. said. He led Charlestons recovery from the massive destruction of Hurricane Hugos 135 mph winds and waves back in 1989.

The shaking continued there, to shouts of Evacuate! Evacuate! The Park Service closed all monuments and memorials on the National Mall, and ceiling tiles fell at Reagan National Airport outside Washington. All flights there were put on hold. Also in Washington, the National Cathedral said cracks had appeared in the flying buttresses around the apse at one end. Everyone here is safe, the cathedral said on its official Twitter feed. Please pray for the Cathedral as there has been some damage. In New York City, the 26story federal courthouse in lower Manhattan, blocks from the site of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks on the World Trade Center, began swaying, and hundreds of people streamed out of the building. Also in New York, workers in the Empire State Building spilled into the streets, some having descended dozens of flights of stairs. I thought wed been hit by an airplane, said one worker, Marty Wiesner. Another, Adrian Ollivierre, a 28-year-old accountant who was in his office on the 60th floor when the quake struck, said: I thought I was having maybe a heart attack, and I saw everybody running. I think what it is, is the paranoia that happens from 9/11, and thats why Im still out here because, Im sorry, Im not playing with my life. A magnitude of 5.8 would make the quake among the most powerful to strike the eastern United States. In 1897, a magnitude 5.9 quake was recorded at Giles County, Virginia, the largest on record in that state. East Coast earthquakes are far less common than in the West, but they tend to be felt over a broad area. The waves are able to reverberate and travel pretty happily out for miles, said U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Susan Hough. Amtrak said its trains along the Northeast Corridor between Baltimore and Washington were operating at reduced speeds and crews were inspecting stations and railroad infrastructure before returning to normal. More than 12 million people live close enough to the quakes epicenter to have felt shaking, according to the Geological Survey. Social media site Twitter lit up with reports of the earthquake from people using the site up and down the U.S. eastern seaboard. People pouring out of buildings and onto the sidewalks and Into Farragut Park in downtown DC, tweeted Republican strategist Kevin Madden. John Gurlach, air traffic controller at the Morgantown Municipal Airport was in a 40-foot tower when the earth trembled. There were two of us looking at each other saying, Whats that? he said, even as a commuter plane was landing. It was noticeably shaking. It felt like a B-52 unloading. Immediately, the phone rang from the nearest airport in Clarksburg, and a computer began spitting out green strips of paper alerts from other airports in New York and Washington issuing ground stops due to earthquake.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES Jerry Leiber, who with longtime partner Mike Stoller wrote Hound Dog, Jailhouse Rock, Yakety Yak and other hit songs that came to define early rock n roll, died Monday. He was 78. He was surrounded by family when he died unexpectedly of cardiopulmonary failure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, said his longtime publicist, Bobbi Marcus. With Leiber as lyricist and Stoller as composer, the team channeled their blues and jazz backgrounds into pop songs performed by such artists as Elvis Presley, Dion and the Belmonts, the Coasters, the Drifters and Ben E. King in a way that would help create a joyous new musical style. From their breakout hit, blues great Big Mama Thorntons 1953 rendition of Hound Dog, until their songwriting took a more serious turn in 1969 with Peggy Lees recording of Is That All There Is? the pair remained one of the most successful teams in pop music history. He was my friend, my buddy, my writing partner for 61 years, Stoller said. We met when we were 17 years old. He had a way with words. There was nobody better. I am going to miss him. The two chronicled their lifelong partnership, which Leiber called the longest running argument in show business, in their 2009 memoir, Hound Dog: The Leiber & Stoller Autobiography. The pairs writing prowess and influence over the recording industry as pioneering independent producers earned them induction into the non-performer category of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. The music world lost today one of its greatest poet laureates, said Terry Stewart, president of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. Jerry not only wrote the words that everyone was singing, he led the way in how we verbalized our feelings about the societal changes we were living with in post-World War II life. Appropriately, his vehicles of choice were the emerging populist musical genres of rhythm and blues and then rock and roll. Recording Academy President Neil Portnow said Leiber and Stoller helped shape the music of the 1950s and s. Together, they were an extraordinary team that generated a rich and diverse musical catalog that leaves an indelible imprint on our cultural history, he said. Leiber, who like Stoller was white, said his musical inspiration came from the close identification he had with black American culture during his boyhood and teen years in Baltimore and Los Angeles. Thus he was the perfect lyricist for bluesy, jazz-inflected compositions like Kansas City, Black Denim Trousers and Motorcycle Boots, Charlie Brown, Drip Drop, Stand By Me and On Broadway. The lyrics could be poignant, as in On Broadway, or full of humor, as in the antics of high school goofball Charlie Brown, who calls the English teacher Daddy-O and laments: Whys everybody always pickin on me? The result was a serious departure from the classically inflected music that had been produced by a previous generation of pop songwriters that included George Gershwin and Irving Berlin. Irving Berlin was the greatest songwriter of all time, Leiber told The Los Angeles Times West magazine in 2006. I was in awe of him. But his music wasnt my music. My the Los Angeles Times Over their career, they had 15 No. 1 hits in a variety of genres by 10 different artists. Among the performers who sang their songs were Barbra Streisand, Aretha Franklin, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Willie Nelson, Frank Sinatra, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Otis Redding. Leiber and Stoller were instrumental in helping launch Presleys career with such songs as Hound Dog and Jailhouse Rock. The two far preferred Thorntons version of Hound Dog to Presleys, in part because the latter version changed some of the lyrics. Lick for lick, theres no comparison between the Presley version and the Big Mama original, Leiber said in the pairs dual autobiography, Hound Dog, published in 2009. Stoller said he was annoyed by the Presley version, but still praised the edge of danger and mystery that Presley brought to his covers of R&B records. In the 1990s, their songs became the centerpiece of a long-running Broadway revue, Smokey Joes Cafe, which won a Grammy for best musical show album in 1996. Angelina Colletti, 97 LECANTOAngelina Dolly Colletti passed away on August 22, 2011, in Lecanto, FL. Formerly of College Point, NY. She was born on August 24, 1913, in New York City, one of seven daughters, to Michael and Antonella (Marcella) Scorca. Beloved wife of the late Joseph. Loving mother of Patrick and Robert.

Private cremation arrangements are under the direction of Chas. E. Davis Funeral Home with Crematory, Inverness.Robert Greene, 101 INVERNESS Col. Robert C. Greene (Ret.) Robert (Bob) Greene, a native of Keene, New Hampshire, and resident of Inverness, Florida, for 30 years, passed away August 12, 2011, at the age of 101. He attended the University of New Hampshire until 1932, earning an ROTC commission in the United States Army. He was called to active duty in 1941. During World War II, he served in ChinaBurma-India-Theater where he was awarded the Bronze Star with Oak Leaf Cluster. He continued his 30 year military service until 1961 serving in such places as Korea, Panama and Paris. He later worked for the United States Army Combat Development Command. He married Viola Philbrook in 1933, a partnership which lasted 63 years. Together they had three children: Sherry Ritz Fischer (Daniel), Robert P Greene (Joni) and Michael O. Greene (Karen). He was blessed with 11 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren and 1 great-greatgrandchild. Upon the death of his first wife, he married Loel (Lori) Allen, acquiring 2 sons, Brian Allen (Rachel) and Christopher Allen (Karen) and 3 additional grandchildren, a brother-inlaw, Hap Hough (Sandy) and a sister-in-law Lynne Hough Reading (Jack). Many of his joys were volunteering at the Inverness Primary School, playing golf, bridge, reading and writing poetry. In the forward of his published book, Rhythmic Thoughts, he wrote: While we can leave our children a legacy of tangible assets: such as real estate, money, objects of art and personal possessions, the things that really matter are not tangible. They are the development of a personality that provides the drive to learn, to love and to contribute oneself in the management of life. Communication by way of creative writing may, hopefully, impart love, admiration and food for thought. Bob was a gentle giant, among his peers, greatly admired and respected. What a pleasure and honor to have had him in our lives. Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of Citrus County, P .O. Box 641270, Beverly Hills, FL 34465. A family gathering and service for Robert has been planned in Petersburg, VA sometime in September.

Obituaries Roscoe McLeod Hound Dog songwriter Leiber dead at 78 Associated Press Jerry Leiber, right, posing with his songwriting partner Mike Stoller, died Monday. Leiber wrote lyrics for such hits as Hound Dog and Jailhouse Rock. Associated PressNEW YORK Nick Ashford, one-half of the legendary Motown songwriting duo Ashford & Simpson that penned elegant, soulful classics for the likes of Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye and funk hits for Chaka Khan and others, died Monday at age 70, his former publicist said. Ashford, who along with wife Valerie Simpson wrote some of Motowns biggest hits, died in a New York City hospital, said publicist Liz Rosenberg, who was Ashfords longtime friend. He had been suffering from throat cancer and had undergone radiation treatment, she told The Associated Press. Though they had some of their greatest success at Motown with classics like Aint No Mountain High Enough and Reach Out And Touch Somebodys Hand by Ross and Youre All I Need To Get By by Gaye and Tammi Terrell, Ashford & Simpson also created anthems for others, like Im Every Woman by Khan (and later remade by Whitney Houston). Ashford & Simpson also had success writing for themselves: Perhaps the best-known song they sang was the 1980s hit Solid As A Rock. His music is unmatched in terms of great songwriting, Verdine White of Earth, Wind and Fire said after learning of his friends death. They had magic and thats what creates those wonderful hits, that magic, White added. Without those songs, those artists wouldnt have been able to go to the next level. Others in the music industry also mourned the loss. On Twitter, Alicia Keys wrote, Im so sad that hes gone. ... So many of the greatests are going to a greater place ... what a legacy of infectious music ... man! Ashford and Simpsons relationship stretched more than four decades. They met in 1964 in a New York City church. Ashford, a South Carolina native, had come to the city to pursue a dance career. Simpson was a music student, and after connecting with her, they decided to start to write songs together. They were always comfortable with each other and they made all of us comfortable, because they were comfortable, White said. Motown composer Ashford dies

S ETH B ORENSTEIN AP Science WriterWASHINGTON Our world is a much wilder place than it looks. A new study estimates that Earth has almost 8.8 million species, but weve only discovered about a quarter of them. And some of yet-to-be-seen ones could be in our own backyards, scientists say. So far, only 1.9 million species have been found. Recent discoveries have been small and weird: a psychedelic frogfish, a lizard the size of a dime and even a blind hairy mini-lobster at the bottom of the ocean. We are really fairly ignorant of the complexity and colorfulness of this amazing planet, said the studys coauthor, Boris Worm, a biology professor at Canadas Dalhousie University. We need to expose more people to those wonders. It really makes you feel differently about this place we inhabit. Potential benefits While some scientists and others may question why we need to know the number of species, others say its important. There are potential benefits from these undiscovered species, which need to be found before they disappear from the planet, said famed Harvard biologist Edward O. Wilson, who was not part of this study. Some of modern medicine comes from unusual plants and animals. We wont know the benefits to humanity (from these species), which potentially are enormous, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Wilson said. If were going to advance medical science, we need to know whats in the environment. Biologists have long known that theres more to Earth than it seems, estimating the number of species to be somewhere between 3 million and 100 million. Figuring out how much is difficult. Worm and Camilo Mora of the University of Hawaii used complex mathematical models and the pace of discoveries of not only species, but of higher classifications such as family to come up with their estimate. Their study, published Tuesday in the online journal PLoS Biology, a publication of the Public Library of Science, estimated the number of species at nearly 8.8 million. Land and water Of those species, 6.5 million would be on land and 2.2 million in the ocean, which is a priority for the scientists doing the work since they are part of the Census of Marine Life, an international group of scientists trying to record all the life in the ocean. The research estimates that animals rule, with 7.8 million species, followed by fungi with 611,000 and plants with just shy of 300,000 species. While some new species like the strange mini-lobster are in exotic places such as undersea vents, many of these species that remain to be discovered can be found literally in our own backyards, Mora said. Low estimate Outside scientists, such as Wilson and preeminent conservation biologist Stuart Pimm of Duke University, praised the study, although some said even the 8.8 million number may be too low. The study said it could be off by about 1.3 million species, with the number somewhere between 7.5 million and 10.1 million. But evolutionary biologist Blair Hedges of Penn State University said he thinks the study is not good enough to be even that exact and could be wrong by millions. Little lizardHedges knows firsthand about small species. He found the worlds smallest lizard, a half-inch long Caribbean gecko, while crawling on his hands and knees among dead leaves in the Dominican Republic in 2001. And three years ago in Barbados, he found the worlds shortest snake, the 4-inch Caribbean threadsnake that lays a single, very long egg. The studys authors point to other species as evidence of the growing rate of discovery: the 6-inch, blind, hairy lobster-type species found in 2005 by a submarine looking at hydrothermal vents near where the Pacific meets Antarctica and a brilliant-colored frogfish found by divers in Indonesia in 2008. Encyclopedia of life Of the 1.9 million species found thus far, only about 1.2 million have been listed in the fledgling online Encyclopedia of Life, a massive international effort to chronicle every species that involves biologists, including Wilson. If the 8.8 million estimate is correct, those are brutal numbers, said Encyclopedia of Life executive director Erick Mata. We could spend the next 400 or 500 years trying to document the species that actually inhabit our planet.

Associated Press This undated handout image provided by the National Museum of National History in Paris, France, shows a blind new species, distantly related to the squat lobster family, which was found in 2005 in hydrothermal vents where the East Pacific Rise meets Antarctica. We live in a much wilder world than it looks. A new study estimates that Earth has almost 8.8 million species, but the vast majority of those species are types of animals yet to be discovered. And they could be in our own backyard, scientists say. This image, provided by NOAA and taken in 2002, about one mile deep near a huge underwater volcano near Monterey Bay, shows this marine animal, thought to be a new species that has yet to be described or named. It is a type of mollusk called nudibranch that sheds its shell early in life. This undated image provided by the International Rice Research Institute shows Oryza officinalis, photographed in the Philippines. Its not just new animal species that are still to be discovered. Scientists are looking for and finding wild plant species such as strains of wild rice that may help feed the world better. This photo of a wild rice strain is from the International Rice Research Institute. This undated image provided by seaphotos.com shows the face of a Histiophryne psychedelica, a highly atypical a psychedelic frogfish (Antennaridae) first described in 2009 from a handful of specimens photographed in Ambon, Indonesia in 2008. It has a vestigial, non-functional lure (illicium/esca) and probably traps its prey inside coral holes and crevices or within coral rubble. The unusual pattern is thought to mimic the appearance of several kinds of hermatypic coral, and while varying slightly from individual to individual, appears to remain unchanged throughout the life of each individual.

Found in the Dominican Republic, the gecko is about 16 mm, and is also the smallest amniote vertebrate of 25,000 species (including birds, mammals,and reptiles). Hedges said: I found it with a colleague, while crawling on my hands and knees among dead leaves, anticipating a small lizard, but not that small!

New-home sales fall for third monthWASHINGTON Sales of new homes fell for the third straight month in July, a sign that housing remains a drag on the economy. If the current pace continues, 2011 would be the worst year for new-home sales on records dating back at least half a century. Sales fell nearly 1 percent in July to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 298,000, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. Thats less than half the 700,000 that economists say represent a healthy market. Last year, 323,000 homes were sold the worst year since 1963. While new homes represent less than one-fifth of the housing market, they have an outsize impact on the economy. Each home built creates an average of three jobs and $90,000 in taxes, according to the National Association of Home Builders. High unemployment, larger required down payments and tougher lending standards are preventing many people from buying homes. FDIC: Number of problem banks fellWASHINGTON The number of troubled banks tracked by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. fell in the April-June quarter, the first quarterly drop in five years. Growth in bank earnings slowed, a sign that the financial industry is feeling the effects of a weak economy. The FDIC said Tuesday that there were 865 banks on its confidential problem list in the second quarter, or roughly 11.5 percent of all federally insured banks. That was down from 888 in the January-March quarter and the first decline since mid-2006. Those are banks considered to have low capital cushions against risk. The FDIC also said the banking industry earned $28.8 billion in the second quarter, up from $20.9 billion in the same period last year.B USINESS C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE W EDNESDAY, A UGUST 24, 2011 A9 Advance Capital I: Balanc p 15.16+.27 RetInc 8.67-.01 Alger Funds B: SmCapGr 5.62+.27 AllianceBern A: BalanA p 14.56+.30 GlbThGrA p 64.83+2.35 SmCpGrA 30.09+1.51 AllianceBern Adv: LgCpGrAd 24.05+.92 AllianceBern B: GlbThGrB t 55.71+2.02 GrowthB t 22.52+.95 SCpGrB t 24.09+1.22 AllianceBern C: SCpGrC t 24.24+1.22 Allianz Fds Instl: NFJDvVl 10.66+.34 SmCpVl 28.35+.95 Allianz Funds A: SmCpV A 27.02+.91 Allianz Funds C: AGICGrthC 21.96+.88 TargetC t 13.18+.66 Amer Beacon Insti: LgCapInst 17.46+.49 Amer Beacon Inv: LgCap Inv 16.56+.47 Amer Century Adv: EqGroA p 19.74+.66 EqIncA p 6.75+.15 Amer Century Inv: Balanced 15.19+.28 DivBnd 11.09-.05 EqInc 6.75+.15 Gift 26.28+1.16 GrowthI 23.97+.94 HeritageI 18.96+.90 IncGro 22.49+.73 InfAdjBd 12.90-.11 IntDisc 9.53+.32 IntlGroI 10.17+.26 New Opp 6.87+.36 OneChAg 11.43+.31 OneChMd 11.19+.23 RealEstI 18.80+.46 Ultra 21.77+.90 ValueInv 5.18+.15 American Funds A: AmcpA p 17.64+.55 AMutlA p 23.94+.63 BalA p 17.37+.35 BondA p 12.54-.04 CapIBA p 48.85+.85 CapWGA p 32.39+.82 CapWA p 21.48+.01 EupacA p 37.30+.92 FdInvA p 33.60+1.07 GovtA p 14.52-.04 GwthA p 27.86+.89 HI TrA p 10.74-.06 IncoA p 16.17+.26 IntBdA p 13.65-.03 IntlGrIncA p 29.25+.74 ICAA p 25.64+.71 NEcoA p 23.70+.67 N PerA p 26.24+.69 NwWrldA 49.63+1.01 STBFA p 10.11...

The Dow Jones industrial average jumped 322 points, its best day since Aug. 11, when it gained 423. The Dow dipped about 60 points shortly after an earthquake hit the East Coast at 1:51 p.m., but recovered within 20 minutes and soared even higher in the last two hours of trading. James Paulsen, chief investment strategist at Wells Capital Management, said the beating stocks have taken since late July suggested investors were preparing for a recession. They questioned that bleak outlook Tuesday after a survey of manufacturing in the Southeast from the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, Va. pointed to a slowdown, not a recession. And when people are preparing for a recession, slow growth is good right now. The Dow, which tracks 30 huge U.S. companies including IBM Corp. and General Electric Co., closed with a gain of 3 percent at 11,176.76. Indexes that track smaller stocks did even better, a sign that investors were more willing to take on risk. The S&P 500 index rose 38.53 points, or 3.4 percent, to 1,162.35. The Nasdaq composite, which tracks mainly technology companies, rose 100.68 points, or 4.3 percent, to 2,446.06. The Russell 2000 index of smaller U.S. companies gained even more, 4.9 percent. When stocks plunged last Thursday, the reverse was true. The Dow fell 419 points but only 3.7 percent. The other three indexes fell more. The Russell 2000 lost the most, 5.9 percent. As of Monday the Standard & Poors 500 index had lost 16 percent over four weeks as investors worried that the U.S. might enter another recession and as Europes debt crisis flared up again. That meant the average company in the index was priced at just 11 times its expected earnings per share for 2011. Thats too low if youre not in a recession, Paulsen said. The historical average for the S&Ps P/E ratio is 15. After Tuesdays gain, the S&P is down 14 percent since July 22 and 15 percent since it hit its high for year on April 29. The biggest Dow gainer was Exxon Mobil Corp., which rose 4.9 percent. Chevron Corp. rose 4.3 percent. Energy stocks got a push from a $1.02 increase in the price of oil, to $85.44 a barrel.

O PINION Page A10 WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 24, 2011 Show true colors Although it seems patriotism should be natural in everyday life, it is when that freedom of expression of love for this great country has been deprived that it is appreciated more when that freedom returns. Such has been the case with the Crystal River flag fiasco. This restriction of civil liberty was very real and I thank God that the U.S. flag has been withdrawn from the Crystal River sign ordinance. Only recently did I learn that the U.S. flag was under what was called a sign ordinance a dishonor in itself, as the U.S. flag is not a sign but instead it is a symbol of what we hold dear the epitome of freedom itself! Although without the national attention of Fox News to this infringement thatrestricts the flying of U.S. flags to three, there may not have been arejection of this limit, I thank God that the city council overruled thecity planning commission. There does come a time when God and country must come first! As Councilman Gudis remarked, our country is at war, and that this is the time to show our true colors: the red, white and blue! Renee Christopher-McPheeters Crystal River You dont need creditIn reference to an article (Does debit spell danger?) by Shemir Wiles on July 12: Yes, it is a lucrative crime for the crook. Woe unto us who have been so trusting. My wife and I eat out sometimes as much as three days straight. We do not use a credit card. We have no credit cards. We pay all our bills with USPS money orders. When we order anything from a catalog, we call them first to find total cost and send them a USPS money order. Our car is paid for. Our house is paid for. We use cash wherever possible. Credit cards credit, per se will be the death of this country as an independent, self-reliant nation. In order to stay within limits, we have no credit accounts and, to stay secure, we are in the phone book for further information. You dont need any credit cards. You dont need credit. Period.Chester L. McWhorter Sr. Lecanto R epublicans dodged a big bullet at the Ames, Iowa, straw poll. If just 77 of the 4,283 people who voted for Rep. Michele Bachmann had voted instead for Rep. Ron Paul, then Paul would have won the straw poll. In the end, Bachmann came out ahead with 28.55 percent of the vote to Pauls 27.65 percent. No other candidate was close. Some well-connected Iowa Republicans viewed it as a bullet dodged because they had long feared the possibility of a Paul victory. It would pour jet fuel on the East Coast narrative that Iowa is just too nutty to have such an important place in the nominating process, says one of those Republicans. Before the poll, they saw a Paul-Bachmann one-two finish as the worst-case scenario. They ended up with Bachmann-Paul a result establishment Republicans viewed as somewhat better than the other way around and got a lot of the criticism anyway. The criticism came not just from Democrats or so-called Eastern elite RINOs (Republicans in Name Only). Ron Paul is going to destroy this party if they keep him in there, said Rush Limbaugh the day after the Aug. 11 Fox News-Washington Examinerdebate in Ames. This is nuts on parade. Key Republicans in Iowa and around the country, too are genuinely baffled by the Paul phenomenon. They understand (and share) many of Pauls views on the Constitution and limiting the size and scope of the federal government, even if they think Paul sometimes goes too far. What perplexes them is Pauls take on foreign policy, especially the threat of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons. Why wouldnt it be natural that they might want a weapon? Paul asked at the Fox-Examiner debate. Theyd be given more respect. ... Whats so terribly bad about this? As for sanctions against Iran, Paul said, Countries that you put sanctions on, you are more likely to fight them. ... I say stay out of their internal business. The crowd in Iowa State Universitys Stephens Auditorium included a large group of Paul supporters who broke into loud cheers every time Paul spoke, including when he gave his views on Iran. That audience goes nuts, Limbaugh said the next day. I think, Oh, my gosh, what am I watching here? Its likely most Republicans agree with Limbaughs assessment, and Pauls ability to say such things and still remain a force in the party confuses many in the GOP What part of his support is attributable to a different world view, and what part is attributable to the economic libertarian world view? asks the well-connected Iowa Republican, who freely admits he doesnt know the answer. No one fears that Paul will walk away with the Republican nomination. But with a strong core of supporters, he has the means to stay in the race nearly as long as he wants. That core support also earns him a spot in high-profile debates. To qualify for the Fox-Washington Examiner debate, for example, candidates had to have at least 1 percent support in five national polls. Paul qualified with plenty of room to spare; in the most recent RealClearPolitics average of polls, he has 9 percent support, well ahead of fellow candidates Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Rick Santorum and, until his poststraw poll withdrawal from the race, Tim Pawlenty. Paul also has enough money to do what he wants. He reported raising $4.5 million in the second quarter of this year, with about $3 million in the bank. Since he has decided to retire from the House, he can also spend unused funds raised for congressional campaigns. Speaking of retirement one aspect of the Paul phenomenon that has received little attention so far is his age. Born in 1935, he will be 77 years old on Inauguration Day 2013 the same age Ronald Reagan was when he left the White House after serving two terms. If Paul were elected and re-elected, hed be 85 at the end of his time in the White House. Even though Americans are living longer, most people would probably agree thats too old for a president. But the Paul campaign isnt really about the practical possibility that he might become president. Its more about Pauls supporters forcing the larger political establishment to acknowledge that hes right. The day will come soon when candidate Paul will get his due, tweeted one supporter recently. Blowback is gonnabe a b-h. Of course, most Republicans dont believe that. But Paul commands enough support to make his presence known all the way through next year.Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner.

HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member SCHOOL DRESS CODE Butt-covering law redundant, overreaching C itrus County School Board members are pretty annoyed when it comes to the question of who is wearing the pants in running our local schools. None of the fivemember board is charmed with the controversial baggy pants fashion statement that has apparently gone from bad to totally indecent among our student population. And they can accept the vocal public outrage demanding that there ought to be a law when it seems like the droopy drawers are revealing more and more of those things most people just dont want to see. But when state legislators not only pass along their judgments as to what they feel constitutes a breech of community standards but pass along the corresponding required disciplinary actions, they have stepped over the line and right into the empowerment of the local school districts. And we must question not only how in the world are they keeping their pants up? but whether this legislative action is a growing trend of increasing state and federal control over local schools. Dress codes, dress-code violations and consequences for dress violations were already on the books in Citrus County and left little uncovered when it comes to the lack of tolerance our public school system has for offensive clothing. The policy addressed from head to toe what should be covered, what can be uncovered, what any piece of clothing might suggest, and whether a garment is too tight, too baggy, too long or too short. Steps toward enforcing this policy were carefully outlined and gave the administration additional authority to use their best judgment in implementing the dress code so that the intent is clear and the consequences are even clearer. But thanks to some determined state lawmakers, the baggy pants bill now requires all school districts to do it the states way. The bill is detailed, with specific consequences for students, from a verbal warning to in-school suspension to loss of privileges to attend extra-curricular activities such as football games all actions that are similar actions to those outlined in the 2011 local dress-code policy. This meant, of course, the Citrus County School Board recently had to amend its current dress code so that it could outlaw what had already been outlawed. Public indecency is not a laughing matter, although singing along with Pants on the Ground is often a comic release for an uncomical social concern. From baggy jeans worn by surfers in the 1960s to bell-bottom trousers representing rebellious hippies to parachute pants worn to facilitate gyrations exhibited by break dancers, pants and what they symbolize have stirred as much controversy as miniskirts, bare midriffs and the evidence of cleavage. It is certainly not unconstitutional for our esteemed state officials to enact legislation that addresses issues that are contrary to what they feel are the accepted standards of decency. Few are in disagreement that students should dress appropriately for school. But local school board members were justified in their indignation. This bill blatantly interferes with local school control and places decisions in a one-size-fits-all framework rather than in the discretion of local experts who are on the site daily. And while the concerns of looking at underwear have merit and the social implications associated with baggy pants are disarming, do we really want our tax dollars to go to state-level fashion policing? THE ISSUE: Fashion advice from state legislators.OUR OPINION: Local school authorities can take care of their own baggy pants, thank you.

Yes, if you go on the Suncoast Parkway at 4 in the afternoon or at 11 oclock at night, it may seem like a ghost highway. However, if you get on during the normal business hours, you will find that there were several hundred cars traveling that highway and it is very, very necessary.Unnecessary hystericsThe only two countries in the world who have national debt ceilings are the U.S. and Denmark. Denmark keeps theirs artificially high just to avoid the situation the U.S. just went through. Congress has put us citizens through mass hysteria for no good reason.Flat tax supportIm for the fair tax. I think millionaires should pay the same amount of taxes as I do when I make $23,000 a year and they make $10 million a year. I think its a great idea. Then we can hire more people to collect the sales tax from the flat tax so they can collect it. It makes sense, doesnt it?Raining? Headlights on While driving with all the rain that we recently had, there were numerous cars that did not turn on their headlights. I believe its the law that you must turn your headlights on when its raining. Perhaps if the police stopped and gave them a ticket, they would remember it next time.

Bureaucracy The Inverness City Water Department is my concern. Bureaucracy at its finest! I awoke Tuesday morning to find I had no water. I called the water department and was told that I had not paid my bill. I explained that TDBank advised me that it was returned for an incorrect address. I corrected the address and I sent payment for that bill and the following one that I had just received with a late fee added to arrive Aug. 10. Due date is Aug. 22. I was told that they couldnt turn the water on until the bank sent a fax saying that the payment would be sent tomorrow. TDBank said it couldnt do that because I might cancel the payment. I called the water department back and told them what happened. They couldnt help me and a $30 startup fee was now added to get the water. Local TDBank was now contacted and I talked to Marilyn, with whom I have longtime dealings, and she said Of course I will help you. And she did. A fax was sent. The water department still was not satisfied. I told them I was an 89year-old woman who had not had a drink of water since 8 a.m., now being 1 p.m., and they would be accountable if I died without it. They said send the money by bank and we will turn your water on, so I made and additional $30 payment. The water is on at 2 p.m. Where is the compassion? Where is the consideration? Where is the humanity? Follow the money, follow the money. Money is all that counts it is your new/old God. Polly Murphy Inverness Jeffersons takeThis is in response to Mr. Gilbreaths Aug. 11 letter What Separation? Mr. Gilbreath refers to the Bible, and to obscure and obsolete laws, prior to the creation in 1776 of our U.S. Constitution. There is no religious deity mentioned in the U.S. Constitution, and the First Amendment states Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free excercise thereof. The U.S. is populated by people of diverse religions or no religion. No one should be compelled by our government to financially support someone elses faith as was the law in colonial Virginia, which had a state-established religion and mandatory support, through church taxes, for the Anglican faith. On Jan. 1, 1802, President Thomas Jefferson wrote of the intended relationship between religion and government: I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislation should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibit the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between church and state. Mr. Gilbreath also indicated he was unable to find a separation clause in our state constitution. Sir, I refer you to Article 1, Section 3 of the Florida State Constitution (1868), which has a no aid provision that prohibits public taxes from paying for religious purposes. I suggest that my fellow citizensthink of themselves as Americans first, and not use their religion to primarily identify themselves. Think separation of church and state! Augie Nero Inverness Elite losers All I hear from the left wing today is hypocrisy, hypocrisy, hypocrisy as they cry for cooperation and bipartisanship. We saw how they practice cooperation and bipartisanship during the health care debate when they had a majority in the Congress. They governed by backroom-, middle-of-the-night deals with absolutely no input from the Republican Party. The American people took notice of their tactics, and turned them out. Now they have to rely on begging for crumbs. I cant wait for 2012. Someone was published in the Sound Off section making fun of Sen. McConnells statement that his No. 1 job is making sure that Obama is a one-term president. The caller thought his first priority would be to represent the people who sent him there. He is representing them. I havent spoken with Sen. Rubio lately, but Im sure he knows I would be proud of him if he would do all he can to make Obama a oneterm president. The stakes are getting high and the Democrats are getting desperate. They have gone to the lie-andfear tactics. Is there anyone out there so stupid as to think the Republicans are going to do away with Medicare and Social Security? Thats what every Democrat who opens his mouth is saying. What the Republicans have done is suggest a couple of plans to save those programs. Ive heard nothing but raise taxes out of the Democrats. Obama showed his true colors by playing his fear card of not paying Social Security and military retirement benefits. If that doesnt convince you that you have a real loser in there, nothing will. The Democratic Party is controlled by socialists and has been during my lifetime. Its an elitist group of losers who cant show us a single example of a successful implementation of their political philosophy, while failures abound. Their objective is to create a large enough welfare class who rely on the government to exist that they control the electoral process. There can be no compromise on that. I say no to the nanny state. Harley Lawrence Homosassa A GOP vote lostAs a loyal voting Republican Party member for over 60 years, disappointment in the partys political actions has increasingly come to light over several years as it has taken the low road of accepting and endorsing greed at its highest level at the expense of what is left of the middle class (I include Democrats with this shameful situation). Our debt ceiling of trillions of dollars is incomprehensible to me, a person living on a substandard income including Social Security benefits. Presently my budget is tightly maintained, with my remaining future in doubt. A $10 minimum donation would allow me to purchase three gallons of gasoline. The wealthy citizens of this country will have to cover my contributions. Our government representatives continually ignore and avoid the obvious additional revenue from heavier taxation on the wealthy and large corporations, who are the controlling factors in the subversion and mismanagement of our countrys affairs. I expect my future vote will be for an Independent or Socialist candidate. Jean S. Montville Dunnellon Craving a Costco Has anybody ever thought of building either a Costco or a BJs near where themall is located (or anywhere here in Citrus County, for that matter)? Not only isthere a huge need for a place like that here in Citrus, think about all thepeople a place like this could bring into the area. Those people would spendtheir monies on local goods as well, giving our economy a much needed kickin the butt not to mention the jobs it could create. Where is the innovation or imagination of our elected leaders here in Citruswhen we need them the most? Robert A. Bialick Pine Ridge estates Depressing What causes clinical depression? First of all, I have no earthly idea what that term means. I have heard it used in various articles and through media broadcasts. Could it be the turmoil for senior citizens and working folks that their elected officials fail to act prudently in representing them? Or maybe it is the loss of valued sons, brothers, spouses trying to protect us in a foreign land! By the way, will we ever be able to arrive at a meaningful solution in that foreign land? Does it depress us when a leader salutes their bravery and the fact that they are protecting us? Are we depressed to acknowledge that there are children, wives, brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers who have now lost that soldier? Their gallantry is superb, but we have them no more. Maybe we are depressed that the American Idol staff isbickering over whether $20 million or $10 million per year in salary is adequate! Perhaps the stock market is pressing on your psyche! The Dow, S&P NASDAQ they do induce a pressure on our minds! Police officers are doing their duty to protect us. Their lives stopped short with guns (yes, I know, people kill people, not guns)! That does not make it any more palatable for their family. Does that depress you? Are you depressed that billions of dollars, your dollars, are going to Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan to keep us safe? Are you even more depressed to learn that much of that money is not accountable? How about the concern that the people we are fighting have received munitions from our money? Now thats depressing, I dont care who you are! If that is not enough to create clinical depression, I dont know what is. Of course, we could talk about Congress and lobbyists, their pensions after two terms, their sexual encounters, and their apparent desire to further their reelection first and their elected responsibility last. But I dont want to tax you. You are now depressed clinically! Seriously, is there anything good happening? Donald Slough Inverness No switchboards My wife was scheduled for two tests at Seven Rivers hospital. She has had these tests done at least four or five times at Seven Rivers and has not paid a dime because the tests are covered 100 percent under her insurance. The afternoon prior to the scheduled appointment, I received a call from the hospital verifying her appointment. I was also told to tell her the cost of the tests would be over $313, as per our insurance company. I called my wife at work and told her what the hospital told me. She then called the hospital and told them she didnt have to pay anything to have the tests done. The hospital insisted that the insurance told them she has to pay. She canceled the appointment. After returning home from work, she called her insurance company and they told her she didnt have to pay anything. After getting the name and number of the person she talked to, she called the hospital, not once but twice because the stupid computer system they have answering the phones would not connect her to aliving person. I then called and talked to the nursing supervisor and explained what had happened. I also told her the person who called the insurance company did not know what he was doing or who he shouldtalk to and what information to give them. The companies that have these computer answering system should get rid of them and hire someone to answer their phones. They say computers make everything a lot easier.

Associated PressTRIPOLI, Libya Hundreds of Libyan rebels stormed Moammar Gadhafis compound Tuesday, charging wildly through the symbolic heart of the crumbling regime as they killed loyalist troops, looted armories and knocked the head off a statue of the besieged dictator. But they found no sign of the man himself. The storming of Bab al-Aziziya, long the nexus of Gadhafis power, marked the effective collapse of his 42-year-old regime. But with Gadhafi and his powerful sons still unaccounted for and gun-battles flaring across the nervous city the fighters cannot declare victory. The rebel force entered the compound after fighting for five hours with Gadhafi loyalists outside, using mortars, heavy machine guns and anti-aircraft guns. They beat and killed some of those who defended the compound and hauled away crates of weapons and trucks with guns mounted on the back in a frenzy of looting. Were looking for Gadhafi now. We have to find him now, said Sohaib Nefati, a rebel sitting against a wall with a Kalashnikov rifle. Abdel-Aziz Shafiya, a 19-yearold rebel dressed in camouflage with an rocket-propelled grenade slung over one shoulder and a Kalashnikov over another, said the rebels believe Gadhafi is inside the compound but hiding underground. Wasnt he the one who called us rats? Now he is the rat underground, he said. Shafiya said he felt an explosion of joy to be standing inside Gadhafis stronghold in the capital after a lightning-quick rebel advance. He had left the rebelheld western city of Misrata just two days earlier. I lost friends and relatives and now I can walk into Gadhafis house, Shafiya said. Many of my friends have died and now all of that meant something. Associated Press reporters inside the compound said parts of it appeared to still be under control of government forces who were firing toward the rebels, making for an atmosphere of joyful celebration mixed with tension. The air was thick with smoke from the battles and the sound of crackling gunfire was constant. Rebels chanted Allahu Akbar or God is Great and on loudspeakers they cried: Hamdullah, hamdullah or Thank God. As the fighters stormed in, they captured a guard at the gates and threw him to the ground, slamming rifle butts into his back. A hostile crowd gathered around, punching and kicking him until one rebel stepped in, stood over him and kept the crowd at bay. Inside the walls, a few bodies of Gadhafi fighters one with a gaping head wound from a gunshot were sprawled on the ground. Several young men wrenched the head from a statue of Gadhafi and kicked it around. One lifted it above his head while his jubilant comrades danced and yelled around him. Fighters with long beards hugged each other and flashed the V for victory sign. Others carried injured rebels to ambulances. A fighter climbed atop the iconic statue of a huge golden fist clenching a model of an American warplane and shot his machine gun in the air in celebration. The statue stands outside a building that was once Gadhafis home, preserved with the pockmarks of an American bombing in 1986 as a symbol of his defiance. Gadhafi delivered many a fiery speech from the balcony of that house, railing against the West. It was there that he appeared on television six months ago, at the beginning of the uprising, and mocked his opponents. Bab al-Aziziya has since been pummeled many times over by NATO bombings in the air campaign against the regime that began in March. Thousands of rebels converged on the compound after it was breached, snatching ammunition and arms from depots inside. They found brand-new rifles still in their paper wrappings. Scuffles broke out among rebels pushing and shoving to get inside two white buildings where the rifles, machine guns and handguns are stored. They came out drenched in sweat from the struggles. Ali Sameer, a Tripoli resident, stood with three brand new rifles resting on his legs. They are for my friends. I dont even know how to fight, he said. The rebels carted out boxes of the weapons and ammunition, and some drove off with trucks mounted with anti-aircraft guns on the back. Home fire Associated Press A Norman, Okla., firefighter douses hot spots Monday after a fire destroyed a mobile home in eastern Cleveland County. Units from Norman, Little Axe and Slaughterville responded to the fire. No injuries were reported. Police: Mom tossed baby from buildingORANGE, Calif. A Southern California mother whose 7-month-old son was tossed from the fourth floor of a parking structure was arrested and booked for investigation of attempted murder, police said Tuesday. The infant remained in critical condition at University of California, Irvine, Medical Center, said Orange police Sgt. Dan Adams. Sonia Hermosillo, 31, of La Habra, was arrested Monday night, hours after the baby was thrown over a parking structure railing at Childrens Hospital of Orange County. Its believed the baby was thrown from the fourth floor of the structure, Adams said. Hermosillo was being held without bail. Detectives havent speculated on a motive, Adams said. A witness called 911 after seeing the baby falling just after 6 p.m. on Monday. Surveillance video showed Hermosillos tan Chevrolet Blazer sport utility vehicle with an empty child restraint seat leaving the parking structure a short time later, the sergeant said.

Greek cops smash doughnut ring THESSALONIKI, Greece It took an undercover operation, but Greek police have blown a hole in a ring of alleged crooks who had cornered the doughnut market in a beach resort. It started with complaints that two Bulgarian men and a former Greek wrestling champion were using violence to choke off the trade by other doughnut vendors on Paliouri beach in the Halkidiki peninsula near Thessaloniki. So an undercover officer posed as a doughnut seller, police said Tuesday, and he was attacked, leading to the arrest of the three aggressive doughnut sellers. As a result, they have been charged with blackmail and fraud. They also were charged with food safety violations after police found they had stashed their product in an abandoned hotel that was open to the elements and used by bathers as a toilet.

Libyan rebels stormed Moammar Gadhafi's main military compound in Tripoli Tuesday after fierce fighting with forces loyal to his regime that rocked the capital as the longtime leader refused to surrender despite the stunning advances by opposition forces. Administration plans to ax regulations Associated PressVINEYARD HAVEN, Mass. The White House announced plans Tuesday to end or cut back hundreds of government regulations, an effort the Obama administration said will save businesses $10 billion over five years. The administration said many of the regulatory reforms focus on small businesses. Those include accelerating payments to as many as 60,000 small businesses that have contracts with the Department of Defense, and requiring the Small Business Administration to adopt a single electronic application in order to reduce paperwork burdens. Cass Sunstein, head of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, wrote in an editorial in the Wall Street Journalthat the reforms will reduce costs, simplify the system, and eliminate redundancy and inconsistency. After his partys sweeping defeats in the 2010 elections, President Barack Obama launched a concerted outreach to the business community, vowing to scrutinize federal regulations that companies consider to be an excessive burden. Obama said at the time his goal was to scrap dumb rules without weakening ones that are needed to protect consumers and the environment. Regulations used by the Federal Aviation Administration to ensure safe air travel and by the Department of Agriculture and Food and Drug Administration to protect food safety were not impacted by the plans announced Tuesday. Libyan rebels storm Gadhafis compound Toyota showcases new Camry Associated PressDEARBORN, Mich. The Toyota Camry has been the best-selling car in America for nearly 15 years, its reputation for reliability keeping it on top even when the carmaker was hurt by major safety recalls. But its lead has shrunk dramatically. Feeling the pressure, Toyota unveiled the 2012 Camry on Tuesday, its first redesign of the sedan in five years. While Toyota hopes to create buzz by lowering the Camrys price, improving its fuel economy and adding new features, it may not be enough to keep the Camry No. 1 in the increasingly competitive market for midsize sedans. The Camry is not a slamdunk by itself anymore, says Jesse Toprak, vice president of industry trends and insights for car pricing site TrueCar.com. Toyota showed off the new Camry on the Web and at events in California and elsewhere. It has given the car a sharper, more pointed hood, a quieter and roomier interior and more trunk space. Its also offering Entune, a system that lets drivers access internet services like Pandora from their mobile phones using voice commands or an in-dash touch screen. But critics say the styling is bland compared with edgier rivals like Nissan, Hyundai and Kia, and that Toyota saved money by using cheaper interior materials. Theres nothing fundamentally wrong with it, but is that good enough nowadays? No, its not, Toprak says. The new Camry is due to arrive at dealerships in early October. A basic version will cost just under $22,000 and get 35 mpg on the highway. Toyota has sold more than 15 million Camrys worldwide since it introduced the car in 1983.

Another journalist arrested in phone hacking scandal Associated PressLONDON British police made their 13th arrest Thursday in the countrys tabloid phone hacking scandal, and a private investigator at the center of the crisis sued Rupert Murdochs media empire for breach of contract. Britains phone hacking scandal where journalists broke into the voice mails of royals, movie stars, top athletes, politicians and even teenage murder victims has shaken Rupert Murdochs News Corp. and forced the resignations of top people in Britains government, police and media. It also prompted Murdoch to shut down the 168-year-old U.K. tabloid,News of the World. Police confirmed a 38year-old man, who they declined to name, was arrested at a London police station after arriving voluntarily Thursday. He was later released on bail. Britains Guardian newspaper reported the suspect was James Desborough, formerly the Los Angeles-based U.S. editor for the News of the World and the 2009 winner of the British Press Award for show business reporter of the year. The newspaper claimed his arrest was related to activities that took place before he moved to the United States in 2009. Desborough built his career with salacious scoops, including outing a popular TV host, Fern Brittons, gastric-band surgery and chronicling the messy divorce of Paul McCartney and Heather Mills, who herself has claimed her voicemails were hacked by a journalist.

Associated PressSOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. The Pennsylvania party rolled on at the Little League World Series. The hometown favorites from Clinton County overcame a rocky start with a six-run first inning then held on for a 7-5 win Tuesday night over Warner Robins, Ga., before another raucous crowd under the Lamade Stadium lights. Brandon Miller got the offense going again with a leadoff single before coming around to score on Landon Breons two-run single. Miller, Pennsylvanias 12year-old sparkplug, finished the scoring in the frantic first with an RBI infield single. Georgia had the winning run at the plate with two runners on with two outs in the sixth, but reliever Tyler McCloskey got a groundout to end the game. Central Pennsylvanias favorite sons celebrated another victory before exchanging handshakes with their opponents at home plate. The crowd erupted with chants of Lets go Keystone! Lets go Keystone, before a deafening roar following the final out. In the early games Tuesday, second baseman Ken Igeta had an RBI double to start the scoring in a three-run third, and catcher Asuya Otsuka added an RBI triple in Hamamatsu City, Japans 4-0 victory over Langley, British Columbia. Cumberland, R.I., had a wild 8-7 win over the Netherlands in a consolation game after Colin Cannata scored on an error in the bottom of the sixth. An earthquake centered in Virginia briefly rattled Lamade Stadium during that game, causing the metal tables bolted to the concrete floor on press row to shake for several seconds. Play never stopped, and Rhode Islands players said they never felt the rumbling on the field. The giddy players created their own mini-rumblings when they mobbed Cannata in foul territory after he scored the winning run. There was an earthquake, manager David Belisle asked incredulously later. Is that right? A Little League official said the venue was deemed safe after a structural engineers inspection, and the rest of Tuesdays slate went on as scheduled. The Georgia-Pennsylvania nightcap had the intensity of two major league teams competing for a pennant. Pennsylvanias fans livened up the atmosphere wearing the colors of their beloved Big Blue Machine. A local marching band played in the stands to make Little League feel old school. Many of the 32,000-plus in attendance made the 30-mile drive from Clinton County up Route 220 to South Williamsport. If the Keystone players keep this up, theyll be making that drive through championship Sunday.

In a statement from Summitt released by the university on Tuesday, the Hall of Fame coach said she visited with doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., after the end of the 2010-11 basketball season ended and was diagnosed with early onset dementia Alzheimers type over the summer. I plan to continue to be your coach, Summitt said. Obviously, I realize I may have some limitations with this condition since there will be some good days and some bad days. The Knoxville News Sentinel and Washington Postfirst reported Summitts condition. The coach did not immediately return messages from The Associated Press seeking comment. Tennessee athletics director Joan Cronan told the AP that Summitt first thought her symptoms were side effects from medicine she was taking to treat rheumatoid arthritis. She said Summitt appears to be feeling better after beginning to get treatment for the dementia condition and speaking publicly about it. Shes ready to fight this and move on, Cronan said. She had to come to grips with how she wanted to face it. Summitt, 59, told the Knoxville paper she plans to rely on medication and mental exercises to manage the progressive condition that destroys cognitive abilities over time. Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Brad Penny pitched effectively into the seventh inning, Alex Avila had an RBI single and the Detroit Tigers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1 on Tuesday night. Penny (9-9) gave up one run and eight hits over 6 1/3 innings. He had gone 1-3 with a 6.99 ERA in his previous five starts. Phil Coke allowed two doubles, two intentional walks and struck out five over the final two innings for his first save. Tigers manager Jim Leyland stuck to his plan of giving eighth-inning setup man Joaquin Benoit and closer Jose Valverde the night off. After Johnny Damon hit twoout double and Evan Longoria was intentionally walked in the ninth, both advanced one base on Cokes wild pitch. Ben Zobrist then hit three foul balls on 3-2 pitches before grounding out to end the game. David Price (11-11) allowed two runs and six hits in eight innings. The Tampa Bay left-hander was coming off consecutive road wins against the New York Yankees and Boston in which the AL All-Star was touched for one run and nine hits in a combined 16 innings. The game started after a 20minute delay because of a weather-related problem with the lights at Tropicana Field.

Busch, who doesnt need a license to compete in NASCAR, also was fined $1,000, sentenced to 30 hours of community service and put on one year of unsupervised probation. He pleaded guilty to speeding and no contest to reckless and careless driving in North Carolina District Court in Iredell County. Busch addressed the court before his sentencing by District Court Judge H. Thomas Church, apologizing again for driving 128 mph in a 45-mph zone in a bright yellow 2012 Lexus on May 24.

It is the second longest par 5 on the course. Some 7 Rivers members refer to this hole as the gateway to the back nine. M ARION W ALKER For the ChronicleL aced with palm, pine, oak and cypress trees, 7 Rivers Golf & Country Club is a true classic Florida design. The ponds, lakes and creek beds are connected to one another and wind throughout the golf course. Eventually, the water in these waterways finds its way to the Gulf of Mexico. The osprey and egrets eye their prey across the water from an old gator that has his sights on the turtle swimming by. The hawk sits high in the cypress tree, calling out to whoever will listen. These sights and sounds of the wildlife are as much a part of the golf experience as the 18 holes of golf. If these holes could talk, they would tell of triumph and heartbreak in everyday play or special events such as the annual Presidential Mens Invitational and the Lollypop Womens Invitational. Todays focus is on the par-5 13th hole. Some 7 Rivers members refer to this hole as the gateway to the back nine: the beginning to some of the best finishing holes anywhere. Hole No. 13 is a par-5 dogleg left measuring as long as 511 yards from the back tee and 437 yards from the senior and ladies tee. It is the second longest par 5 on the course. From the tee, water is on the left and right of the fairway. Although the fairway is ample in width the hazard on both sides can worry a hooker and make a slicer aware of trouble. A good drive is a playable drive center, left center, right center. This is not the drive to get too picky with. The second shot will be made with a fairway wood or hybrid. The best shot is right of center in the fairway. Too far to the left will find palm and oak trees blocking a clear path to the green. A bogey or worse could be on the horizon. A shot to the right center of the fairway is ideal and will set you up for the third (or fourth) shot to the green. The third shot is played with a midto short-iron over a bunker guarding the front of the green. Club selection is critical and most members of 7 Rivers will advise to take one more club than you might think. Being long on this hole is far less penalizing than short and in the bunker. One-putt is a bonus for birdie. Two-putt for par and run! The definition of the word classic is traditional and enduring. This hole fits that description to a tee.

Detroit scored twice in the seventh, ending Prices scoreless streak at 18 consecutive innings, and took a 2-1 lead on Avilas RBI single and a sacrifice fly by Jhonny Peralta. Avila, who hit a two-run homer in Monday nights 52 win over the Rays, has 15 RBIs in 19 games this month. Zobrist put the Rays ahead 1-0 on a third-inning RBI double. He has 42 doubles this season. Penny gave up hits in five of his first six innings, but was able to limit the damage. The right-hander left with one out in the seventh after walking pinch hitter John Jaso. Daniel Schlereth, who replaced Penny, got one out before giving up a single to Desmond Jennings and walking Damon to load the bases. Ryan Perry worked out of the jam by getting a fly ball to center from Longoria. Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez, a late scratch Monday because of lower back spasms, had a double in four at-bats. Notes: Tampa Bay CF B.J. Upton, who sprained his right shoulder Monday, struck out as a pinch hitter in the seventh. Tigers RHP Al Alburquerque (concussion) could be re-evaluated later this week.

Reporters noticed, but the game went on as if nothing had happened in Cleveland, where the Indians beat the Mariners, and at the Little League World Series. The press box shook for about 30 seconds at Progressive Field, where the Hammond family was celebrating son Liams 10th birthday with his first Indians game one hell never forget. I thought it was the wind, said Tim Hammond, Liams dad. I know the stadium is made to move, but I didnt know what was moving it. I was thinking maybe they blew something up on that movie set. Filming for The Avengers is taking place near the ballpark. At the tennis tournament on Yales campus, 71-yearold John Riccis first thought was of the stage collapse at a concert in Indianapolis earlier this month. We didnt know it was an earthquake we just figured the stands were collapsing, he said. The stadium was evacuated during the third game of a match between Jelena Jankovic and Elena Vesnina. Spectators felt three waves of shaking, as water bottles sloshed back and forth. Vesnina was leading 2-0 and about to serve, facing two break points. Jankovic looked up in amazement as spectators rushed from their seats. Seconds later, the chair umpire suspended play. New Haven firefighters carrying axes walked in and out of the stadium to the applause of fans waiting outside the main court. The fire marshal later deemed the structure sound and let fans back in more than two hours after the tremors hit.C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE W EDNESDAY, A UGUST 24, 2011 B3 Up to Full Sets Package Deals Individual Woods, Irons, Hybrids, Putters, Chippers, Wedges, Gloves, Bags, Balls, Accessories, Clothing, Caps, Visors INVENTORY REDUCTION SALE 80% OFF STOREWIDE SAVINGS We cant renovate and expand until we clear out some space.

Phillies 9, Mets 4 PHILADELPHIA Vance Worley threw seven impressive innings, John Mayberry Jr. and Shane Victorino hit homers and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the New York Mets 9-4 on Tuesday night. One night after Cliff Lee and David Herndon combined on a five-hitter in Philadelphias 10-0 win, Worley (9-1) blanked the Mets until the seventh. The rookie right-hander allowed one run and five hits and had a career-high nine strikeouts to win his seventh straight decision. Playing without Jimmy Rollins, Ryan Howard and Raul Ibanez, the Phillies got 13 hits and rocked Jonathon Niese (11-11). The red-hot Mayberry and Victorino each had two hits and three RBIs to help Philadelphia earn its major league-best 83rd win. Niese gave up eight runs and 10 hits in four-plus innings in his worst start of the season. An RBI groundout by Justin Turner in the seventh snapped the Mets 17 13 innings scoreless streak, their longest of the season. Lucas Duda hit a two-run homer off Michael Stutes in the eighth. New York has lost five straight and 17 of 22.

Athletics 6, Yankees 5NEW YORK Brandon Allen hit two tape-measure homers, Eric Sogard connected for one that barely cleared the wall and the Oakland Athletics hung on to beat the New York Yankees 6-5 on Tuesday night. Brandon McCarthy ran the As stretch of superb pitching into the eighth before allowing a two-out, threerun homer to Nick Swisher that lifted a quiet crowd. The three runs were one more than Oakland had given up in the previous three games combined. The Yankees, who trailed 6-0 in the seventh, rallied for two runs in the ninth against closer Andrew Bailey, before Swisher flied out to the wall in rightcenter with the bases loaded to end it for his 17th save. Scott Sizmore doubled in two runs on the first pitch he saw as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning and Josh Willingham had a sacrifice fly in the sixth for Oakland. McCarthy (7-6) gave up eight hits and struck out six in 7 2/3 innings, improving to 6-1 in eight starts since the All-Star break. Bailey gave up a homer to Jorge Posada to open the ninth and Russell Martin doubled. Brett Gardner reached on an error by Sizemore at third base and Curtis Granderson walked to load the bases after Derek Jeter sacrificed the runners over. An out later, Robinson Cano walked on what appeared to be strike 3 to make it 6-5. BATON ROUGE, La. LSU starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson and three teammates met Tuesday with investigators looking into a bar fight that injured four people, and police said they were cooperative. They did not invoke the fifth amendment. They gave their side of the story, Baton Rouge police chief Dewayne White said. They provided additional witnesses they knew were there that night, and those were witnesses we intend to run down and get their statement. The most seriously injured victim has three broken vertebrae, White said. There have been no arrests and no charges have been filed, but White stressed that police hope to gather enough evidence to arrest whoever is responsible for the victims injuries. If arrests are made, charges could range from misdemeanor simple battery to felony seconddegree battery, Sgt. Don Stone said. Jefferson, offensive lineman Chris Davenport, linebacker Josh Johns and receiver Jarvis Landry were interviewed separately at State Police headquarters during a span of several hours.

Jeff Francoeur matched his career high with four hits as the Royals, who had lost six of seven away from home, opened a 10-game, 10-day road trip on a winning note. Chen (9-5) improved to 4-1 with a 3.68 ERA in five August starts. The lefthander allowed three runs and four hits in 7 2/3 innings. He walked one and tied a career best nine strikeouts. Chen was perfect through three innings before Yunel Escobar singled in the fourth, snapping an 0-for-17 slump. Greg Holland replaced Chen after Mike McCoy drew a two-out walk in the eighth. McCoy stole second but Holland got Escobar to ground out. Joakim Soria gave up an RBI single to Adam Lind in the ninth but finished for his 23rd save in 30 opportunities. Kansas City came in having lost seven of nine overall and 21 of its previous 28 in Toronto but jumped on Blue Jays right-hander Brandon Morrow with a three-run, four-hit second. Hosmer led off with a homer to center, his 11th and first since July 27 at Boston. Francoeur doubled and Johnny Giavotella followed with an RBI single to center, advancing to second on Colby Rasmus fielding error. Salvador Perez capped the rally with an RBI single.

Birthday: It behooves you to put more energy, dedication and imagination into satisfying your personal ambitions during the next solar cycle. All the little extras you put into your efforts will pay off by producing highly successful results. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Because you cant change a sensitive friend into someone a bit tougher, remember to be tactful when around him or her. Itll be worth not having to cope with wounded feelings. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If you try to take all of the credit for something that you and several others played a role in accomplishing, dont expect your cohorts to have anything favorable to say about you. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Just remember that your friends have a right to express their own opinions, even if their ideas are contrary to yours. You may not like it, but its their prerogative to think for themselves. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Be both thoughtful and cautious in your financial dealings. Unless you take the time to think before you leap, you could make mistakes that would produce lingering, negative results. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Do your best not to get tied down working with someone who doesnt understand the value of teamwork. The wrong partner could gum up the works for both of you. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Duck! All those distasteful chores youve been shoving under the rug might get thrown at you. Organize your affairs so that you can do the most important jobs first. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Avoid groups or cliques that contain certain types who think they are better than everybody else. There are plenty of people out there wholl do their best to make you smile instead. Aries (March 21-April 19) Allowing outsiders to get involved in your family affairs is asking for trouble. Restrict your communications to members of the clan only. Taurus (April 20-May 20) There is a good chance you could let go and level a few choice words on someone who has been bugging you for far too long. The relief will be welcome, but the hurt may still linger awhile. Gemini (May 21-June 20) The best way to remain cautious with your financial affairs is not to go windowshopping. However, if you must head to market, stick to stores that carry only necessities. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If you and your special someone are not satisfied with the way the relationship is going, spend some time together sorting things out. Be willing to do your share and more, if necessary. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) If co-workers are making your day more difficult than need be, you should either speak up or be prepared to cover up their ineptness. Regardless of which you choose, be diplomatic about it. Johnston wont run for mayor JUNEAU, Alaska Levi Johnston wont be mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, anytime soon. Johnston, who toyed with running as part of a reality show, isnt an official candidate for the Oct. 4 election. His attorney, Rex Butler, says Johnston is too busy to run. Butler declined to give specifics but says Johnston has a book coming out next month and plans a tour. Johnston was thrust into the national spotlight in 2008, when Sarah Palin was running for vice president. Johnston was the boyfriend of Palins daughter Bristol who was pregnant at the time with the couples child. The couple has since split. Johnston went on to pose partially nude for Playgirl, and has said his book will set the record straight about the Palin family, with whom hes had a rocky relationship. No illegal drugs in Winehouse bodyLONDON Amy Winehouse had no illegal drugs in her system when she died, and it is still unclear what killed the singer, her family said Tuesday. The family said in a statement that toxicology tests showed alcohol was present in the singers body, but it hasnt yet been determined if it contributed to her death. The 27-year-old soul diva, who had battled drug and alcohol addiction for years, was found dead in her London home on July 23, and an initial post-mortem failed to determine the cause of death. A statement released by spokesman Chris Goodman on the familys behalf said toxicology results returned to the Winehouse family by authorities have confirmed that there were no illegal substances in Amys system at the time of her death. The statement did not mention whether any legal drugs were found. It said the family awaited the outcome of an inquest that is due to begin in October. Winehouses father, Mitch has said his daughter had beaten her drug dependency three years before her death, but he admitted she was still struggling to control her drinking after several weeks of abstinence. Winehouses final recording, a duet with Tony Bennett on Body and Soul, is due to released next month as a charity single. From wire reports C HRIS T ALBOTT AP Entertainment Writer BILOXI, Miss.G len Campbell is having a great time. Make no mistake, it is tragic that Alzheimers disease is slowly stripping away the memories and abilities that dene one of musics greats. But dayto-day, surrounded by his family and friends, encouraged to play his guitar and sing and golf and joke, the 75-year-old Campbell is often smiling. Im really not worried about anything, Campbell said. You know those people who say, Oh, geez, I wonder whats going to happen tomorrow? Tomorrows cool. Just dont mess it up. Its just wonderful. I think where I am at right now in this universe, I wouldnt want to be anything else than what I am. Call it The Zen of Glen, and its been reached through the hard work of his wife, Kim, his children and business associates who are often as close as family. Theyve created a carefully engineered environment meant to shelter and encourage Campbell at every turn, whether hes at home or on the road. The Campbell family allowed The Associated Press a glance at the Country Music Hall of Fame members life during a recent visit to Biloxi, Miss., where Campbell played his first show last month since announcing he has Alz heimers, a degenerative brain disease that so far has proven incurable. That show was a dry run in preparation for a string of dates this summer and fall overseas, and for a goodbye tour next year in support of his last studio album, Ghost on the Canvas, out next Tuesday. Whats really fun is its not like work now because Ive got my kids here, and my wife here, and theyre all playing, Campbell said. There are indeed moments of confusion, memories that refuse to coalesce and words for simple things that remain just out of reach. But for the most part, Campbell doesnt realize he has Alzheimers. Hes untroubled by the gravity of it all. Gently reminded of the diagnosis he says, It hasnt come by yet. You get a little forgetful, Kim says. Well, it may look like that, but I dont want to hear it sometimes. Thats an old trick. And everyone laughs. Out of sadness, a smile. We call it part-timers, Kim said. You just never know. Some days are great, and some days he maybe repeats himself a little. On stage a couple of times he might forget what key a song is in, which 20 years ago might never happen. It started with simple forgetfulness about 10 years ago. Early on, doctors gave less dire diagnoses. As it advanced, there was confusion and anxiety: The family wonders if the disease contributed to a short return to drinking that resulted in a drunken driving arrest in 2003. Recently California took away his drivers license. Kim avoided telling him as long as possible, finding excuses to drive them everywhere they go. Shes afraid hes slipping from the early stage to the middle stage of the disease, and theres no predicting how long hell be able to perform. The album and tour dates are the familys way of helping him stay anchored in the present. The power music has to preserve what Campbell has left is on display any time he picks up a guitar. His fingers appear to have forgotten nothing and still float over the strings. I cant imagine what that guy mustve been like at 25, because at 75 and in this condition hes frightening, said Julian Raymond, producer of Ghost. Hes really very good. Hes blessed in that sense.

To visit the site, go to www.citrus.k12.fl.us. M ATTHEWB ECK Staff WriterA s webmaster for the Citrus County School District, Chris Gangler will tell you simply why he works to design a new and exciting website for the district each school year. Its a labor of love, he said. This year I kind of went with something different, Gangler said Thursday at the Citrus County School District administrative offices in Inverness. I wanted to utilize all of the multimedia tools I could in order to make an attractive, information-based site. Gangler is a vendor for the school system and works on the site from his home. He said another very important factor for him was to make a site people would want to return to often. To achieve his goal, he utilizes a variety of tools to keep visitors returning frequently. We do things like post photo galleries, videos and news clips. We Facebook and Twitter, he said. With all that content, a person is not lacking for information. Bus schedules, dress codes, minutes from school board meetings as well as videos from each of those meetings are just a click away for visitors to the site. From there one can also find links to each district schools site. To visit the site, go to www.citrus.k12. fl.us. Gangler said there was another reason for all of the long hours and effort he has put in to create an exciting, evolving site. I want the public to know exactly what these people in the district do on a day-in-andday-out basis, he said. The teachers, the administrators, they bring their A game to the job every day. The more I work with them, the more impressed I get with the things these people do. He also has the added responsibility of capturing photographs that are posted and regularly updated on the site, as well as shooting and posting video from school functions around the county. Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel said she is a fan of the site. We know we need to get information out there for our parents and students. And this is a great resource for parents, students, teachers and administration, she said Friday. We get a lot of compliments on the site from individuals in other school districts. I hear it all the time that we have an easy-to-navigate, informative site. That tells me its a good site. I use it all the time, Citrus County School Board member Thomas Kennedy said Monday afternoon. Kennedy, a selfdescribed geek, added, Chris has done a good job at creating a balance between ease of use and attractiveness. He says those two aspects of any website are critical elements to success. One of my favorite things to do is to visit the front page of the site, Kennedy said. There are cool pictures, and it changes all the time. The site gives us an opportunity to give a big thumbs-up to many of the cool things we are doing in our schools, Kennedy said. Two of the most popular socialmedia sites on the Web, Facebook and Twitter, have also found their way to the districts main page. Gangler maintains the districts Facebook page on a daily basis and reports news from around the district, in addition to providing notice about upcoming events. We were the first school district in Florida to implement a Facebook page, he said. Now there are eight other school districts with Facebook pages. We have about 1,050 Facebook friends. Twitter, Gangler said, is an emergency-based notification source only. Severe weather or a school being put on lockdown are cases when the school district might utilize Twitter. As a school district, We get better all the time, Kennedy said. Even from two years ago were so much better. Chris has done a great job at making this better. In addition to the districts main site, Gangler also maintains Twitter and Facebook pages to keep students and parents informed about goings-on in county schools.

L AURANN EERGAARD Associated PressWASHINGTON Backpack. Notebooks. Whooping cough shot? If you havent worried about backto-school shots since your tween or teen was entering kindergarten, better put vaccines on the to-do list. Older kids need a few new immunizations starting at age 11, including a shot to guard against the worrisome resurgence of whooping cough. And for the first time this year, 16-year-olds are supposed to get a booster shot, too, for a scary type of meningitis. Many slip through the cracks. One reason: Schools dont require adolescents to comply with a list of national vaccine recommendations like they do kindergarteners. Another reason: Kids this age go to the doctor much less, says Dr. Melinda Wharton of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who had to scramble to get her own daughter that meningitis shot before she headed to college. This whole back-to-school push is a good time for parents to think about their kids in terms of what vaccines are recommended. But when it comes to whooping cough, a growing number of states are requiring updated shots as students enter middle school and beyond. A new California law requires a staggering 3 million students to show proof theyre protected as they head back to class. It is that kind of effort thats going to help us stem the outbreaks, says Dr. Mark Sawyer of the University of California, San Diego. Aside from an annual flu vaccine, here are federal recommendations for preteens and teens: A Tdap shot between ages 11 and 12. It protects against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis or whooping cough and the latter is key as the cough thats so strong it can break a rib is on the rise.

As commissioner of health for Erie County, N.Y., he couldnt help but wonder if any of the students had gone to school sick in order to preserve their attendance record. Billittier was so concerned about the potential health risks that posed, he immediately sent a text message to one of the school board members who were sitting on the stage observing the graduation. Based on his concerns, the Lancaster Central School District stopped giving awards for perfect attendance. The spread of disease in schools will in many ways impact the entire community, said Billittier. The diseases were concerned about spread from person to person, and person to object to person. School districts around the country have been reexamining their attendance policies because of growing concerns about public health. This is a big issue, said Dr. Georges Benjamin, director of the American Public Health Association in Washington, D.C. We ought to do a better of job of teaching people when its appropriate to stay home. Students who go to class sick probably wont learn much, and may delay their recovery, Benjamin said. If youre obviously ill, youre not going to feel well enough to pay attention, he said. The threat of an H1N1 flu outbreak in fall 2009 prompted the discussion in many districts. Thats when the Texas Education Agency encouraged districts to review their policies. A number of schools suspended their awards for perfect attendance, but the state did not track how many. Officials in the Peru Central School District in New York also stopped giving perfect attendance awards that year because of concern that kids would come to school with flu symptoms. We had heard from time to time of children attending school when they were best home in bed, said Superintendent A. Paul Scott. This allows families to make decisions about what is best for their children. The change in policy does not mean the district has lowered its expectations for students, Scott said. We expect perfection, he said. Well settle for excellent and now that is true for our attendance policy. The Peru district has added new honors instead, focusing on academics, citizenship and good character. Concern over H1N1 also prompted the Hillsborough County Public Schools in Tampa, Fla., to end their practice of allowing students with perfect attendance to skip final exams. Rewarding students for perfect attendance while telling them to stay home if they had flu symptoms seemed like a mixed message, said district spokesman Stephen Hegarty. The district has not reinstated the practice, but did offer the 2011 graduating class another incentive for scoring perfect attendance: The district teamed up with a car dealer to give away a 2011 Toyota Scion to a senior with perfect attendance for the second semester. School officials felt the contest would help combat senioritis, Hegarty said. Going to school sick paid off for Sara Berger of Richmond, Ind. The recent graduate of Northeastern High School won the choice between a Ford Fiesta or a scholarship of equal value in a Wayne County Area Chamber of Commerce contest after she had perfect attendance her senior year. Berger, who confessed to going to school after vomiting one morning, chose the scholarship. I really liked school, said Berger, who plans to attend Purdue University. I always took it very seriously. If youre not there, youre not going to learn. Administrators in Circleville, Ohio, started rewarding excellent not perfect attendance by changing its policy in fall 2008 at the urging of local health officials, said superintendent Kirk McMahon. To encourage good attendance, school officials worked with a car dealer to give away a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am on the last day of school. High school students who missed no more than four days were entered in the drawing. Theres no shame in missing a day, McMahon said. We want whats best for these kids and whats best for the entire population. Attendance: Less than perfect can be even better School districts around the country have been re-examining their attendance policies because of growing concerns about public health.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Pick up the phone and hear, Hey, whats up? Chances are, those few words are enough to recognize whos speaking perhaps unless you have dyslexia. In a surprise discovery, researchers found adults with that reading disorder also have a hard time recognizing voices. The work isnt just a curiosity. It fits with research to uncover the building blocks of literacy and how they can go wrong. The eventual goal: To spot at-risk youngsters. Today, researchers know that children who are more phonologically aware when they enter kindergarten have a better shot at easy reading. One way to check that: See how theyre able to delete sounds from words ask them to quickly say cowboy without the boy. Differences in brain-processing show up even in infants, says Patricia Kuhl of the University of Washington, who studies how babies learn language. A colleague in her lab tested how well babies could distinguish ah and ee sounds between ages 7 months and 11 months. Those who did best wound up with bigger vocabularies and better pre-reading skills by their fifth birthdays. Associated PressIRENE, S.D. When the nearly 300 students of the Irene-Wakonda School District returned to school this week, they found a lot of old friends, teachers and familiar routines awaiting them. But one thing was missing: Friday classes. This district in the rolling farmland of southeastern South Dakota is among the latest to adopt a fourday school week as the best option for reducing costs and dealing with state budget cuts to education. It got down to monetary reasons more than anything else, Superintendent Larry Johnke said. The $50,000 savings will preserve a vocational education program that otherwise would have been scrapped. The four-day school week is an increasingly visible example of the impact of state budget problems on rural education. This fall, fully onefourth of South Dakotas districts will have moved to some form of the abbreviated schedule. Only Colorado and Wyoming have a larger proportion of schools using a shortened week. According to one study, more than 120 school districts in 20 states, most in the west, now use four-day weeks. The schools insist that reducing class time is better than the alternatives and can be done without sacrificing academic performance. Yet not all parents are convinced. The kids are going to suffer, said Melissa Oien, who has four children in the school and serves as vice president of the parentteacher organization. Of course they will. Theyre missing a whole day of school. South Dakotas Republican-controlled Legislature slashed aid to schools this spring by 6.6 percent to help close a $127 million budget gap. Republican Gov. Dennis Daugaard said state revenue has not grown in three years while costs have risen for medical services for the poor. Facing budget shortfalls in the sour economy, many other state Legislatures also cut public education spending this year some, like Texas, sharply. While studies have confirmed the value of extending classroom time, no substantial research yet exists on academic achievement when its shortened, said Michael Griffith, a senior policy analyst for the Education Commission of the States and author of a recent report on the four-day week. kindergarten but that protection wears off, and pertussis outbreaks in middle or high school no longer are rare. While older kids usually recover, whooping cough can cause weeks of misery and worse, they can easily spread the bacterial infection to not-yet-vaccinated infants, who can die. Last year was especially bad for whooping cough, with more than 21,000 U.S. cases and at least 26 deaths. California was hard hit with more than 9,200 cases the most since 1947 and 10 babies died. The new California law aims to ensure everyone entering seventh through 12th grade got a booster at some point. Before the law, about half those students were estimated to be unprotected, says Dr. John Talarico of the California Department of Public Health. With vaccine vans parked at schools and special Tdap lines at some county health departments, an immunization program for the poor and underinsured has been distributing three to seven times more shots than usual in recent months, he says. A first dose of whats called meningococcal conjugate vaccine between ages 11 and 12, with a booster dose at 16. This fast-moving bacteria can cause meningitis or a bloodstream infection. Its fortunately rare, causing fewer than 2,000 cases a year. But it can be so aggressive that someone can feel fine one day and be dead the next and its main targets are adolescents and college freshmen. Why? Thats not clear, but about 10 percent of the population carries the germ harmlessly in their noses and throats. Carriers tend to spread it by coughing, kissing and sharing drinking glasses, especially in crowded conditions like dormitories. Infection initially mimics a stomach bug, with fever and vomiting. Up to 15 percent of patients die. One in five survivors suffers permanent disabilities including brain damage, deafness or amputated limbs. CDCs statistics show that 54 percent of 13to 17-yearolds had gotten vaccinated by 2009. But the booster dose is new advice scientists only recently learned that first dose wears off after five years. So if your child didnt get vaccinated until, say, 13 and now is 18 and heading for college, Wharton says dont forget the booster. Finally, for girls ages 11 to 12, theres the HPV vaccine for strains of human papillomavirus that can cause cervical cancer. The idea is to start the three doses needed early enough to be fully vaccinated well before the girl becomes sexually active. But in 2009, only 27 percent of girls ages 13 to 17 had gotten all three doses. We were very disappointed in those numbers, Wharton says. A vaccine version is sold for boys to prevent HPV-caused genital warts, although CDC hasnt yet recommended its routine use. Whartons final advice: Adolescence is a good time to catch up on any shots that were recommended after your child started kindergarten and thus missed, like the second dose of chickenpox vaccine that became routine for the 5-year-old set just a few years ago.
