M ATTHEWB ECK Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Students in Sandy Popes seventh-grade science class spent Monday afternoon learning a new language science. I want them to understand that we use the metric system to communicate with scientists all around the world. The rest of the world uses that unit of measure, scientifically. Pope, who is in her 21st year as a science teacher at the Crystal River Middle School, said the purpose of the lesson Monday was to set the stage for the rest of the year. The units of measure learned will be implemented throughout the school year in her class with the goal of it becoming second nature for her students. In his personal life outside of the classroom, Noah Prestidge, 12, has seen the practical application of the metric system at his fathers office in Sumter County. He does a lot of lab work and I go to work with him sometimes on the weekend.

Bush sent lessons to Scott Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Newly released documents reveal that Jeb Bush offered incoming Gov. Rick Scott a long list of lessons learned through trial and error that touched on everything from how to deal with those guarding his safety to telling him it was OK to veto stupid bills. In emailed documents obtained by The Associated Press after they had been kept out of public view for months, the former two-term Florida governor urged Scott prior to his swearing-in to push for universal private school vouchers, save money by releasing elderly prisoners and close down one of the state pension plans. Bush also suggested that his fellow Republican consider selling off the states virtual school, eliminate state money for some university programs and look at taxing online sales as part of a swap to lower other taxes. Some of the initiatives suggested by Bush were passed by the Republican-controlled Florida Legislature this past spring. Take them for what they are ... a desire that you succeed, Bush wrote in one email to Scott that was sent around New Years Day. Scott, a former health care executive who had never held office, was sworn in Jan. 4. Scott didnt respond immediately to calls for comment Wednesday. But records show that he forwarded Bushs emails, including two attached memos, to his top transition adviser. Bushs suggestions were included in a batch of emails recovered recently by a member of Scotts transition team. The private company handling email for Scotts transition office shut down the email accounts in January, but it wasnt publicly known until this month that the emails had been deleted. Last week, Scott ordered an investigation into why the accounts were closed and whether the state could recover emails written by himself and other members of his senior staff between the time of his election and his inauguration. Jeb Bush Rick Scott See SCOTT / Page A8 Down to a science Student numbers up M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS Each year Citrus County School District officials look at a number of factors to set staffing plans based on expected enrollment. Trends, the economy and census data, to name a few, all come into play. Then they open the doors and see how many students actually show up. Enrollment is about 215 students above projections district-wide, assistant superintendent of business services Kenny Blocker said Wednesday. The biggest jump is in kindergarten, forcing Central Ridge and Forest Ridge elementary schools to add classes to meet the state mandated maximum of 18 children per teacher. Our kindergarten world is coming up out of the woodwork, Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel told the Chronicle Editorial Board Wednesday. Mike Mullen, assistant superintendent of school operations, said projecting enrollment is not an exact science and officials cant pinpoint an answer for the higher numbers this year. Theres no rhyme or reason why it happens, Mullen said. Most of the higher enrollment is in the high schools, with 233 students over projections, Blocker said. Middle schools are 46 under projections. Elementary schools, even with the higher kindergarten attendance, are just 28 above projections. Blocker attributed that to enrollment drops in the higher elementary school grades. For example, Homosassa Elementarys third-grade numbers came in lower than expected so low that a third-grade class was eliminated and a teacher transferred to Central Ridge Elementary to teach a new kindergarten class that opened up because of higher than expected enrollment. Central Ridge Principal Nancy Simon said she expected six kindergarten classes this year and instead has seven. Forest Ridge jumped from six kindergarten classes to eight, Principal Laura Windham said. The state classroom size amendment sets mandatory maximum limits on classes. The limit is 18 in kindergarten through third grade; 22 students in fourth through eighth grade, and 25 in high school. Blocker said Crystal River High School added a teacher to help handle the School Days School Days Editors note: Throughout the 2011-12 school year, the Chronicle staff will follow the progress of several classrooms across the county during its series School Days.

Samantha Michelle Kelley died at Shands at the University of Florida Hospital in Gainesville Sunday at 8:30 a.m. The 19-year-old woman from Citrus Springs was transported to Shands Friday afternoon after losing control of the 1998 Chevy Camaro she was driving that crossed the double yellow line and slammed into a 1996 Chevrolet 3500 pickup truck. The occupants inside the pickup, the driver, 50-year-old Anton W. Joseph, his wife, Karen Joseph, 43, and their children, Kaylen Joseph, 4, and Sherod Joseph, 9, were transported to various hospitals in serious condition. Rain was falling at the time of the accident, officials said. Kelleys death is the 39th traffic death for Marion County for 2011. Quake rocks N. Peru LIMA, Peru A strong but deep earthquake shook a sparsely populated northern jungle region on Wednesday near Brazils border. There were no reports of damage or injuries. The quake had a magnitude of 7.0 and was centered 50 miles north of the jungle city of Pucallpa, said Perus Geophysical Institute and the U.S. Geological Survey. It was felt mildly in the capital, Lima. But in Pucallpa, buildings shook, trees swayed, and people headed out into the street. The agencies said the quake struck at 12:46 p.m. local time, centered 90 miles underground. The deeper the quake, the less it is likely to cause damage. An unidentified local woman interviewed by Perus Canal N television station said the earth swayed like a hammock. A great rattling is how Pucallpa police official Angela Romero described it. She said people moved calmly into the street. Peru is among the worlds most seismically active countries. County offers home loan help S HEMIR W ILES Staff Writer LECANTO For those fighting to stave off the looming possibility of foreclosure, there is relief out there for those who are eligible. The Florida Hardest-Hit Fund program, administered by Florida Housing Finance Corporation, assists people who have become unemployed or under-employed, and allows them to receive up to six months mortgage payments (with a cap of $12,000) paid directly to their lender, and/or funding to help bring a delinquent first mortgage current (up to $6,000). Pat Wilkerson, a housing coordinator with the countys housing services department, said the program has been available throughout the entire state since April 18, after a pilot program was successfully implemented in Lee County. To date in Citrus County, Heidi Blanchette, housing operations manager for the county, said 19 people have applied for the funds; however, only six people are currently being assisted. Nevertheless, Blanchette added there have been several inquiries. To qualify for assistance, there are several requirements a homeowner must meet such as: be a Florida resident, be a legal U.S. resident or a legal alien, occupy the property as primary residence and have a household income as high as 140 percent of Citrus Countys median income. In addition, Wilkerson said the homeowners mortgage must be with a regulated financial institution and cannot be more than 180 days past due. A person must also be unemployed or under-employed through no fault of his or her own. A spouse dying and losing social security income or quitting a job does not make a person eligible. You had to have been a wage earner in the market, Wilkerson said. Once it is determined a homeowner is qualified, it can take anywhere from seven to 15 days to get through the underwriting process, which occurs in Tallahassee. Then once the underwriting is done, he or she must reach out to the lender and it can take another 30 to 45 days for the lender to decide if they want to participate in the program. Since Wilkerson has been running the program in Citrus, she has seen the relief the program has brought to some peoples lives. In one particular case, she said she was able to help a family of five stay in their home. The father, who had a highpaying construction job, was laid off in June and was scared he, his wife and their three children were going to become homeless. The day Wilkerson said he closed, he was just ecstatic. They get so excited that From staff and wire reports Citrus County school enrollment higher than expected See STUDENT/ Page A8 See HELP / Page A8

see him use the metric system all the time. For many Americans, the transition away from the American system of measure has been a difficult one. Things like weights in pounds, inches, temperature readings in Fahrenheit and measurements in gallons or pints are ingrained in our culture. But for Prestidge it has been the exact opposite experience. Since I was younger my dad would always teach it to me and I have become used to using it. Its easy. Brei Hodges, 12, said she sees why its important to have a grasp of both units of measure. Its important to learn the metric system so when we have a job, if we want to be a scientist, we will know both units of measure, American system and metric, she said while taking a break from her lab lesson. Mondays science lesson wasnt her introduction to the system either. Shes had a jump-start. Ive been learning the metric system since about third or fourth grade at the Rock Crusher Elementary School, she said. As Pope circled the lab, looking in on the students working at their stations, she periodically challenged them, asking them to think like a scientist. Remember, were a global community. she said. Dalton David, 11, fully understands the importance of learning the metric unit of measure. We need to learn metric because its more accurate and its easier to measure and do.

N ANCY K ENNEDY ChronicleMembers of the Citrus County Tea Party Patriots and other supporters of Israel lined Main Street in Inverness Wednesday to bring attention to the fight over Israels sovereignty as a nation. Israel has been fighting for centuries, and theyre entitled to exist, said Edna Mattos. Theyre being pressured by (the Obama administration) to go back to the borders, which would wipe them out. Mattos added that the majority of Americans are pro-Israel. The reason she and the others chose Wednesday to come out and rally is to show support of Glenn Becks Restoring Honor program. Hes over in Israel right now, and were here. Not all were politically motivated, but spiritually motivated to be there, such as Patty Adams whose sign read: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. A devout Christian, she believesGod blesses those who stand with Israel and removes his blessing from nations who do not.

From staff reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE J IM H UNTER Special to the ChronicleFlorida Gov. Rick Scott notified the Southwest Florida Water Management District Wednesday that he appreciated the cuts the distrusts governing board has made for next years budget totaling about $122 million, but he wanted more. The department started 2011 with 897 employees and through attrition, reduced that figure to 796. With the latest round of cuts this week, it will have 764 employees overseeing 16 counties, including Citrus County. In a letter to Paul Senft, chairman of the district governing board, Scott said under the changes in the state law pursuant Chapter 2011-67, he was invoking his right to disapprove some items in the district budget. Scott disapproved the districts scheduled $2.4 million in operating reserves, noting that to make all the water districts of the state consistent, he has set an operating reserves cap at 16.5 percent for all districts about two months operating expenses. He also cut the district salary and benefits budget by $1.57 million. A spokesperson for the district said Wednesday 32 employees were being laid off this week to satisfy that requirement. Communications Manager Robyn Felix said the district had, up to this week, reduced its workforce by about 100 through retirement and attrition. Scott also cut $259,000 more from the salary and benefits expenditures by reducing and capping top senior management salaries. He gave the district the following schedule: Executive director, who now makes $194,875: no more than $165,00 per year. General counsel, who now makes $183,352: no more than $160,000 per year. Assistant executive director (a recommended new position): no more that $150,000 per year. Deputy executive director: reduction of 10 percent, to $135,000 per year. Other staff members who make more than $100,000 will face a reduction in salary of 5 percent or a salary of $100,000, whichever is greater. In addition, Scott said all the water districts are directed for the next budget to analyze their organizational structure, their personnel, salary and benefits (including health insurance, tuition reimbursement and retired employee insurance subsidy), operation capital outlay and related expenses (vehicle lifespan, lease opportunities, fuel purchasing, vehicle and aircraft maintenance and computers and other equipment), land management strategies, and land acquisition and disposition priorities. He also directed them, in light of a new recent accounting law, to analyze their fund balance reporting requirements regarding reserves/ carry forward balances and operating reserves.Jim Hunter can be reached at www.jimhunter. chronicle@gmail.com Swiftmud to cut positions TALLAHASSEE Flori das five water management districts have submitted tentative budgets that would slash their spending by more than $700 million, or 40 percent. Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday praised the districts for their positive response to his prodding. The Republican governor made cutting water management spending a top priority upon taking office in January. He requested, and the Legislature approved, a $210 million annual cut in their property taxes. The districts will hold hearings before submitting final budgets to Scott and the Legislative Budget Commission for approval. The proposals also won praise from Florida Everglades Foundation CEO Kirk Fordham, a frequent critic of environmental spending cuts. Fordham said the reductions will not jeopardize Everglades restoration. Gov. Scott praises cuts in water district budgets From wire reports M ATTHEWB ECK Staff WriterEach year, members of the Crystal River Moose Lodge No. 2013 make donations to many local children they will never see or meet. Wednesday morning, members of the lodge filled several shopping carts with hundreds of dollars of school supplies and clothes to be used by the children through the school year. Crystal River Primary School Principal Edie Speight helped unload the donations at the front entrance of the school. Its a wonderful thing that the Moose Lodge did for our boys and girls today. Speight said. Our school is about 70 percent free or reduced lunch, meaning they are economically disadvantaged, and these donations help greatly. We also have homeless children here and many times these children come to school without the funds to purchase school supplies. Of all the monies collected by Lodge members, $500 went to purchase the supplies, which included what Crystal River Moose Lodge Governor Al Kueberth called regular school supplies like paper, notebooks, crayons and pencils. But other items he said teachers had requested were also purchased, such as shoes, socks and underwear. Along with the donation of supplies, a $100 cash donation was made that will be put in a specific fund, according to Speight. The fund will assist students in a variety of ways if they are unable to pay for a school field trip or if they cannot afford clothing items that are not on hand at the school. As part of the Lodges Youth Awareness Committee, a different school in the Crystal River area is chosen each year for the donation. Last year, Homosassa Elementary School was the recipient and next year, Rock Crusher Elementary will benefit from the Lodges civic generosity. Walking away with a feeling of accomplishment, Kueberth wiped sweat from his forehead after unloading his vehicle and said, We have to support the community we live in. Were a fraternal organization, so that means we have to help as much as we can.

Moose Lodge donates essential supplies to Crystal River Primary School L OU E LLIOTTJ ONES Special to the ChronicleYANKEETOWN The Town of Yankeetown is appealing a circuit judges denial of its bid to stop the Tarmac King Road mine. In a special meeting Aug. 15, the council voted to appeal to the state 1st District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee. The decision came just days after 8th Circuit Court Judge Robert E. Rountree Jr. dismissed the towns petition for a writ of certiorari a judicial review of the Levy County Commissions 3-1 decision to conditionally approve mining on a 4,750-acre site near Inglis. Town Attorney Ralf G. Brooks said he felt the town had a good chance on appeal and it would cost about $1,000 to file and argue the case. Among the conditions set forth by the county was that Tarmac had to obtain a required permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Tarmac applied for the permit, required under the federal Clean Water Act, in 2007. Yankeetown has protested the commissions decision to hold a public hearing and approve the permit without requiring Tarmac first obtain the Corps permit, citing county ordinances requiring the federal permit be in hand before applying for the county permit. Yankeetown argues that Countys decision to grant Applicants special exception departed from the essential requirements of law because Applicant has not obtained all federal permits before filing its application for special exception as required, Roundtree said in the order. Yankeetown further argues that approval of the special exception violates Levy County Code -719(II)(c)(4) and -186 because the subject mining operation is located in an area designated as Environmentally Sensitive Lands. The Court finds that the Petition for Certiorari should be denied on the merits. Another case challenging the county permit is awaiting a hearing in September. The suit filed by Withlacoochee Area Residents Inc. claims the county violated its own land use plans, including the section on mining on environmentally sensitive lands.

Scott tapped Edwin Buss, who had been head of the Indiana prisons system, back in December. But in a statement, the Scott administration said that differences in philosophy and management styles arose which made the separation in the best interests of the state. Scott announced that Buss is being replaced by Ken Tucker, the deputy commissioner of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Buss met with Scott late Wednesday afternoon. Before the meeting, he refused to comment on whether he planned to resign. During his short stint as Department of Corrections Secretary, Buss banned cigarette smoking in prisons, fired more than 30 highlevel staffers and shuttered some prisons. State prison chief resigns

C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterWhen the county administrator introduced a new hire on Tuesday to commissioners, a member of the public stood up to say it triggered a sense of dj vu. Lecanto resident Chris Lloyd spoke up following Brad Thorpes showing of a video clip from WTSPChannel 10 in St. Petersburg featuring news anchor Ginger Gadsen, who was saying goodbye to the morning news programs executive director, Lindsay Ubinas, who left to accept the position of Citrus Countys public information officer. Citrus County, youre gonna get a good one, Gadsen said in the clip. Lindsay, we love you. Thorpe said he ran the clip to show that people thought Ubinas had done a great job. The purpose of this is obviously to let the public know about Lindsay Ubinas and also to get the board to ratify Lindsays appointment as your new public information officer, Thorpe said. Ubinas said Citrus County was her home. She is a graduate of Citrus High School. Im very honored and very proud to be back here in Citrus County, Ubinas said. The recommended action for the commissioners was to be introduced to Ubinas and to ratify her appointment. Accordingly, Commissioner Joe Meek moved approval. But Meek was interrupted by Lloyd and his sense of dj vu. On June 14 this year, this board ratified a young lady, Miss Bloss, into the position of public information officer, Lloyd said. Lloyd read from the June 14 memo that said the public information officer at that time, Jim Hunter, had retired, so Thorpe was requesting approval to reclassify Deborah Bloss position from Executive Assistant I to Executive Assistant/Public Liaison, with an increase of pay grade to assume the necessary functions of the PIO. At the June 14 meeting, commissioners unanimously approved Bloss reclassification. So I guess I am asking you: Which one of these two fine ladies is your public information officer? Lloyd asked. Thorpe said the job description was basically for public information. I hired Lindsay to try to advance that, Thorpe said. That job description will be changed over a period of time and after she has a chance to evaluate her new role in this county. Thorpe said Bloss would assist Ubinas. It is correct in saying that Miss Bloss will be taking care of some of the internal programs that we currently have: keeping up with newsletters, doing the Citizens Academy, Thorpe said. I think there is enough work for two of them. Ubinas position would be more global, involving public information for the countys large project. Dennis Damato, commission chairman, said, Ill make it short and sweet, Mr. Lloyd: Lindsay will be Jim Hunter with a branding, marketing and special project twist under the direction of Administrator Brad Thorpe. The commissioners vote to ratify the appointment was unanimous. Lloyd later contacted the Chronicle to say he wondered why commissioners were asked to ratify the appointment if Thorpe had authority to hire whom he pleased and he wondered if the job had been advertised. Gary Maidhof, operations and projects officer, said the commissions ratification had not been required, but had been sought as a courtesy to the board and the public. Maidhof added that Bloss position was as public information liaison rather than public information officer. Sherry Anderson, human resources director, confirmed the PIO position had not been advertised as the county administrator can appoint at his discretion. Ubinas salary will be $56,500. Blosss current salary is $37,100.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at 564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com.

Couple sentenced in python strangling BUSHNELL A central Florida couple has been sentenced to 12 years in prison each for the death of the womans toddler, who was strangled in her crib by a pet python. A Sumter County judge sentenced 21-year-old mother Jaren Hare and her live-in boyfriend, 34-year-old Charles Jason Darnell, on Wednesday. They were both convicted last month of manslaughter, third-degree murder and child neglect. Both previously rejected plea agreements for 10 years in prison. Authorities say an 8-foot-6inch albino Burmese python wrapped itself around 2-year-old Shianna Hares head on July 1, 2009. Testimony revealed the snake had not been fed for a month before the attack. Defense attorneys argued that the death was an accident, and there was no way to know that the tame pet would kill a child. Distracted driver hits deputy TAMPA A distracted motorist struck a Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office motorcycle deputy who was trying to get a homeless man to move out of an intersection. The incident happened Wednesday morning as 38year-old Deputy Richard Depianta was on his way to a school crossing at Schwarzkopf Elementary School in Tampa. According to reports, the deputy stopped and activated his blue lights when he saw the homeless man in the intersection and called out for him to move. The homeless man didnt respond and the light turned green. The sheriffs office reported 52-year-old Brian Nolen became distracted by the homeless man and hit the motorcycle. The deputy suffered road rash and was taken to a hospital for treatment. The homeless man fled on foot. Police kill suspect in store robberyTAMPA Tampa police shot and killed a robbery suspect after they say he failed to comply with orders as they tried to arrest him. Police say 26-year-old Carlos Laboy was shot in the hip early Wednesday. He was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where he later died. According to police, Laboy shot 55-year-old Yasmin Sara during an Aug. 17 robbery at Y&S Supermarket and Deli. Sara remains in critical condition. An incident report said Laboy stepped outside his duplex Wednesday morning as police moved in to arrest him. When police shouted, dont move, Laboy made a sudden move toward his waistband. Thats when officer Greg Pryor fired at least one shot, hitting Laboy. Prior will remain on administrative leave while the shooting is investigated. Crist prays, Irenes path changes TALLAHASSEE Can Florida thank God and former Gov. Charlie Crist for Hurricane Irenes shift away from the state? Each year as governor, Crist either personally placed or had a friend place prayers in Jerusalems Western Wall asking God to protect Florida from hurricanes. No major hurricanes hit the state. Now out of office, Crist is continuing the tradition. He asked Patrick Murphy, a Democrat hoping to challenge Republican Congressman Allen West, for help during Murphys trip to Israel. Crist said Wednesday, I said You can do me and Florida a big favor if you can take a prayer to the wall and ask God to protect beautiful Florida. Initial forecasts had the entire state potentially in Irenes path, but its now predicted to swing east of Florida. Hunter sentenced in panther killing NEWNAN, Ga. A 60-yearold former Georgia resident has been fined $2,000 and sentenced to probation after he was accused of shooting an endangered Florida panther. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said David Adams was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to unlawfully killing the animal. He cannot hunt while serving a probation sentence. Prosecutors accused Adams of shooting the panther while he was hunting deer in Troup County on Nov. 16, 2008. Federal officials say Adams was aware that the animal was legally protected. The Florida panther became an endangered species in 1967. The population of those panthers has grown from fewer than 30 in the late 1980s to somewhere between 100 to 160 adults today.Robbers point gun at baby during heist HOLLYWOOD Authorities in Broward County are looking for three gunmen who took about $1 million in jewelry and cash from a Hollywood jewelry store. Hollywood police said Wednesday the three suspects fled in a black, newer model SUV driven by a fourth person. The robbery happened Tuesday morning while customers were shopping at Koosh Jewelers. Employees and customers were ordered to the floor. While one suspect forced employees to open safes, the others grabbed merchandise from the store. The South Florida SunSentinel reported one suspect pointed a handgun at an infant in a stroller and threatened to kill the child if their demands were not met. Shands temporarily shuts down transplant programGAINESVILLE The liver and pancreas transplant programs at Shands at the University of Florida have been temporarily shut down after three of four top surgeons have left for new jobs. Hospital officials told the Gainesville Sun the hospital is recruiting new physicians and will continue post-transplant care of current patients. Shands Healthcare CEO Tim Goldfarb said he has interviewed three doctors in the last 10 days. Teen arrested in shooting death DELAND Police have arrested a teenager in connection with the April shooting death of a 16-year-old DeLand boy. DeLand police say the teen, who was arrested Tuesday, faces manslaughter charges. On April 2, police found the body of Calvin Nealy Jr. inside a DeLand home after receiving reports of gunfire in the neighborhood. He was pronounced dead at the scene. A police investigation revealed witnesses gave inconsistent accounts of the shooting. No further details were immediately available.

Associated PressPORTLAND, Ore. Oatmeal is the new burger. Burger King, the worlds second-largest hamburger chain, added oatmeal to its breakfast menu this week, joining a slew of other chains that have brought the hot cereal out of the cupboard and into restaurants and drive-thrus. Burger King says it is trying to offer customers a healthier breakfast option beyond its sausage croissant sandwiches and french toast dipping sticks. Its also an attempt by the struggling chain to catch up to competitors and boost sagging sales by appealing to customers beyond its base of burgersand-fries fans. We are definitely looking to broaden our target and our audience, said Leo Leon, vice president of global innovation for Burger King Corp. Breakfast is becoming the most important meal of the day for restaurants, accounting for nearly 60 percent of traffic growth between 2005 and 2010. Oatmeal is the latest battleground. Its lowcost, easily prepared and doesnt spoil quickly. It also appeals to consumers who want quick, affordable food that they perceive as healthier than the typical fast-food breakfast fare. Starbucks Corp., the worlds biggest coffee chain, said oatmeal has become its most popular breakfast item.

New iPhone app features names on WTC memorial Associated PressNEW YORK The arrangement of nearly 3,000 names at the World Trade Center memorial is now available as a free iPhone app, memorial officials said Wednesday. The guide to the names, which includes biographical information about the victims and pinpoints the location of each name at the memorial, was placed online in May. It will be available on electronic kiosks when the memorial opens next month, on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Joe Daniels, president and CEO of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, briefed reporters about progress at the site during a New York Press Club tour that also featured a talk by trade center developer Larry Silverstein. A public service announcement about the 2001 terror attacks will air on local TV stations starting Thursday, Daniels said. The PSAs star downtown Manhattan residents, including actor Robert De Niro, as well as victims family members and first responders. The memorial designed by Michael Arad features cascading waterfalls in the footprints of the towers surrounded by bronze parapets bearing the names. It opens to family members on Sept. 11 and to the general public on Sept. 12. Passes can be reserved online. A museum housing thousands of artifacts from the attacks will open in 2012. Daniels previewed one item from the collection: photos and a radio transmission from astronaut Frank Culbertson, the only American in orbit on Sept. 11, 2001. Plumes of smoke arising from lower Manhattan are clearly visible in the images Culbertson shot from the International Space Station. Silverstein, the developer who had just leased the twin towers when they were destroyed, said that despite the still-sputtering economy, he is confident that the new office towers planned for the site will all be built. I have no concern about our ability to get these buildings built and them leased and get them financed, he said. Two office buildings are rising rapidly. The building formerly known as the Freedom Tower, now called 1 World Trade Center, is up to 80 stories on the northwest corner of the site. A second building to the east is up to 48 stories. Both are scheduled to open in 2013. Associated Press The skyscraper called Four World Trade Center, center, is seen above the September 11 Memorial and Museum, bottom center, Wednesday in New York. Developer Larry Silverstein is constructing Four WTC and two additional towers at the site. Burger King introduces oatmeal

Bush, who was Floridas governor from 1999 to 2007, remains extremely popular, particularly among state Republicans. He emailed Scott two documents, one called Ideas for Governor Scott and the other called Scott inauguration. Showing a bit of candor that he has avoided publicly since leaving the governors office, Bush noted that he tried to share similar advice with Gov. Charlie Crist, who succeeded Bush. Crist, who began his term as a Republican, left after one term to mount an unsuccessful campaign for the U.S. Senate last year as an independent after it became clear he would lose the GOP primary. You didnt ask for this, but it is the standard envelope in the desk of the new guy, wrote Bush. To be honest I did the same thing for Governor Crist but he did nothing I suggested, so with the risk of being presumptuous, I am trying again. At the end of the list, Bush added that if Scott wanted to seek counsel from the old guy, I will be there for you. If you dont, I wont be offended. If you do, you can ignore my advice and likewise, I wont be offended. My commitment to you is that whatever we speak about will be confidential. The lessons Bush shared included a suggestion that the new governor work with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents guarding him. Bush, who did not elaborate, said Crist and the late Gov. Lawton Chiles put the agents in difficult positions by rejecting their involvement in their private lives. Chiles was in the final days of his term as governor when he died in December 1998 from an abnormal heart beat while exercising at the governors mansion. His body was not discovered for several hours because he was in a private recreation area. Crist told the AP on Wednesday that he did not know what Bush was talking about. He said that the only time he did not have FDLE agents with him was on occasions when he would go fishing. Bush also advised Scott to make sure that first lady Ann Scott has someone helping her and that her cause should be your cause. He reminded Scott that the Legislatures agenda becomes yours when state lawmakers end their annual session. Both the good and the bad will be yours in the eyes of Floridians. It is OK to veto stupid bills. Trust me, legislators get over it, he wrote. Bush also urged Scott to own and dominate the annual budget because its the path to good policy. The list of initiatives offered by Bush that were passed this year by the Legislature includes shifting Medicaid patients into managed care and expanding the use of online education in public schools. Scott had already said he supported those ideas during the campaign. Bush called the state pension plan that guarantees benefits to employees based on their salary and years of service doomed. Scott tried unsuccessfully to persuade lawmakers to shut this pension plan down and shift new hires into one that paid them on how well their investments perform. But the governor also recommended that Scott push ahead with education savings accounts or a form of universal private school vouchers. Under the plan, students from kindergarten through high school would get vouchers of a to-bedetermined amount that they could use to offset private school tuition. Critics say such proposals would undermine public schools, while Bush and other proponents argue that it would give parents choices, improve education and save the state money in the long run by putting more students in private schools. Bush acknowledged such a move would probably lead to legal challenges. As governor, Bush helped create a voucher program for students at poor performing public schools that was thrown out by the Florida Supreme Court. Scott said during the campaign he favored voucher programs but he didnt push it this year. I am guessing lawyers inside Tallahassee will say that it is not constitutional, wrote Bush. I dont know how our court will respond but it will be a game changer for the country and you might have the chance to change the makeup of the court. Bush added that Scott should look at releasing older prisoners who have already served a long time, saying they cost extra money and are unlikely to commit crimes. He said that Scott should slash funding for university institutes and force them to seek private funding because they are not part of the direct mission of higher education. He recommended that Scott consider selling the Florida Virtual School, which offers online classes to students, saying that while it makes significant money it could make more in the private sector. You could use the proceeds to fund a technology initiative that would lead the nation, Bush wrote. Bush, who pushed for deep tax cuts while he was governor, also told Scott that one way to keep his promise of eliminating the states corporate income tax was to review the potential of taxing online sales. It seems to me there has to be a way to tax sales done online in the same way that sales are taxed in brick and mortar establishments, he wrote. My guess is that there would be hundreds of millions of dollars that then could be used to reduce taxes to fulfill campaign promises. Bush, in an emailed response to the AP said it is a tradition for former governors to send letters to the incoming governor and he commended Scott and the legislative leadership for their actions so far in the midst of a challenging economy. They accepted the challenges with a vision for the future, and as a result passed policies that will strengthen Floridas future, Bush wrote. If the policy ideas I sent played a role in the conversations and decisions, I am flattered. additional students, while Citrus and Lecanto High schools were able to adjust schedules without additional staff.

SCOTT Continued from Page A1 STUDENT Continued from Page A1 HELP Continued from Page A1 Russian supply ship for space station crashes Associated PressCAPE CANAVERAL A Russian space station supply ship crashed with a thunderous boom into Siberia minutes after launch Wednesday, rattling NASA and others in this new era without any shuttles to bail out the orbiting outpost. The rocket failed barely a month after NASAs final space shuttle flight. While the International Space Station has more than enough supplies, the accident threatens to delay the launch of the next crew, just one month away. Thats because the upper stage of the unmanned Soyuz rocket that failed is similar to the ones used to launch astronauts to the station. In addition, three of the six space station residents who are due to return to Earth in two weeks might end up staying longer. NASA wants a full staff to keep research going. The astronauts were just beginning to spend more time on scientific experiments, now that the station is complete. The Soyuz rocket soared right on time from Kazakhstan, and everything seemed to be going perfectly until just over five minutes into the flight. The third-stage ignited, but the rocket commanded the engine to shut down because of a problem, said NASAs space station program manager, Mike Suffredini. All contact with the spacecraft was lost. Russian space officials declared it a total failure after reports of wreckage falling with a deafening roar in a remote area of Siberia. The explosion was so strong that for 100 kilometers (60 miles) glass almost flew out of the windows, Alexander Borisov, head of the Choisky region in Russias Altai province, was quoted by state news agency RIA Novosti as saying. Shuttle Atlantis final mission in July left the space station with a years worth of provisions. Without the shuttles, NASA now is counting on Russia, Europe and Japan, as well as private U.S. businesses, to keep the station stocked. The Russians had 3 tons of supplies aboard the Progress ship that was destroyed. And its the Russians who will be transporting astronauts back and forth until U.S. private industry can pick up the human load. NASA and its international partners want to keep the space station running until at least 2020. At a news briefing, Suffredini said the Sept. 22 launch of a new three-man crew one American and two Russians may need to be delayed, depending on how the accident investigation goes. They are supposed to replace American Ronald Garan Jr. and Russians Andrey Borisenko and Alexander Samokutyaev, who have been on the space station since April and are due to return to Earth on Sept. 8. Their medical status will be taken into account, as well as their exposure to cosmic radiation, before any decision is made to keep them in orbit an extra month or two, Suffredini said.

The unmanned Russian supply ship bound for the International Space Station failed to reach its planned orbit Wednesday, and pieces of it fell in Siberia amid a thunderous explosion.

Survey: Overhaul may push employee benefits shift INDIANAPOLIS Nearly one of every 10 midsized or big employers expects to stop offering health coverage to workers after insurance exchanges begin operating in 2014 as part of President Barack Obamas health care overhaul, according to a survey by a major benefits consultant. The surveys, which involved more than 1,200 companies, suggest that some businesses feel they will be better off dropping health insurance coverage once the exchanges start, even though they could face fines and tax headaches. The percentage of companies that are already saying they expect to do this surprised some experts. If they follow through it could start a trend that chips away at employer-sponsored health coverage, a long-standing pillar of the nations health system.Hertz, GE partner in China electric autos ventureSHANGHAI Rental car company Hertz Global Holdings and General Electric plan to partner in offering electric vehicles in China and expanding the charging networks needed to run them. An agreement signed in Shanghais Auto City of Anting on Wednesday calls for building hundreds of charging stations in major Chinese cities including Shanghai and Beijing, Hertz executives said.

Associated PressNEW YORK A late afternoon surge pushed stocks higher for the third day straight. The Dow Jones indus trial average finished with a gain of 144 points Wednesday, but only after veering much of the day from gains to losses and back again. Gold plunged $104 an ounce and government bond yields rose as investors became less fearful. An encouraging rise in orders for cars, aircraft and other long-lasting goods in July helped ease worries that the U.S. was headed for another recession. The government said durable goods orders rose 4 percent, the biggest increase since March. Orders fell in June. The stock market spent the day looking like a driver given bad directions. The Dow headed lower at the start of trading, turned up 115 points by 10 a.m., then pulled another U-turn and lost 48 points shortly after midday. Near the end of the day, the Dow retraced its route and rose steadily in the last 90 minutes of trading to end up 143.95 points, or 1.3 percent, at 11,320.71. The Dow had surged 322 points the day before, the biggest gain since Aug. 11. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 15.25 points, or 1.3 percent, to 1,177.60. The broad market measure has surged 4.8 percent for the week. If those gains last through Friday, it would be the first week the index has risen since July 22. The Nasdaq rose 21.63, or 0.9 percent, to 2,467.69. Large swings in the stock market have been commonplace this August. In the week after Standard & Poors stripped the U.S. of its AAA rating Aug. 5, the Dow alternated between 400-point gains and losses four days in a row. Thats never happened before. The stock market often takes sudden turns in late August anyway, when fewer traders are at their desks, said Dan Greenhaus, chief global strategist at the brokerage BTIG.

O PINION Page A12 THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011 An evolving oligarchy Herbert Hoover, a basically decent man, took the blame for the Depression resulting from the policies of his predecessor, Calvin Coolidge. President Obama is facing similar blame for a bad economy he did not cause. Coolidge said, The government that governs least governs best. Thats the mantra of the tea party and the maxim of legislators who havent the foggiest idea how to govern. Economists agreed that a healthy recovery needed a robust infusion into the economy. Democrats, the presidents base, felt that the stimulus was too timid, while Republicans called it excessive and socialist. FDR, whose stimuli were bold and effective, laughed at this opposition. One of the first things we learn in Sociology 101 is that there are common interests and self-limited interests. Several Republican leaders announced that their goal was to make Barack Obama a one-term president. If that meant making sure the country is in bad shape at election time, so be it! The tea party views taxes, the price we pay for civilization, as unnecessary. Republicans view government regulations as a nuisance and eliminating them insures a boon to the corporations contributing to their elections. But obstructing EPA means polluting the air we all breathe, including politicians. Fifty years ago we were an economic Camelot, with a thriving middle class. Then we crippled unions and gave corporations an opportunity to seek the cheapest labor worldwide. Now our people struggle with joblessness, crumbling infrastructure, foreclosures, homelessness and hunger while a small percentage of the population live lavishly. Government by and for the people is drifting toward an oligarchy with the money, assets and power in the possession of the very few and they have no regard for the common interest. Mary B. Gregory Homosassa D utifully following their tea party scripts, most of the Republican presidential candidates have declared war on the Environmental Protection Agency. They claim that the economy is being smothered by regulations designed to keep our air and water safe. No iota of evidence is being offered, and in fact the record profits of big energy companies indicate a spectacular lack of suffering. But listen to Rep. Michele Bachmanns promise to an Iowa crowd about one of her first presidential priorities: I guarantee you the EPA will have doors locked and lights turned off, and they will only be about conservation. It will be a new day and a new sheriff in Washington, D.C. Granted, Bachmann is a witless parrot who has no chance absolutely zero of being elected to the White House. But her hatred of the EPA is shared by Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, who is considered a GOP frontrunner. Like Bachmann, Perry refuses to accept that global warming is real. He launched a lawsuit to stop the EPA from enacting rules to limit greenhouse gasses from oil refineries, power plants and other industrial sources. Perry likes to whine that EPA regulations are killing jobs all across America, a statement that draws more cheers in his native state than in the rest of the country. In fact, polls show that a large majority of Americans are worried about air and water pollution, and hold a positive view of the EPA. Nothing kills jobs like an environmental catastrophe, as the Gulf Coast gravely experienced during (and after) the BP oil spill last year. The true cost of that accident to the economies of Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida is probably incalculable, although surely many billions of dollars were lost. The cleanup wasnt perfect, but its absurd to think that BP would have worked faster or more efficiently if the Obama administration and the EPA hadnt been leaning on the company, both publicly and behind closed doors. Forty-one years ago the agency was formed, and for good reason: Toxins by the ton were being flagrantly pumped into this countrys rivers, bays and oceans, and blown through smokestacks into the air. People were getting sick and dying only because some companies were too greedy to spend money cleaning up their own mess. The corporate mentality toward pollution has changed because the alternatives are heavy fines, criminal penalties and savage publicity. A reminder of why we still need the EPA was last months oil spill on the Yellowstone River, which affected ranchers, farmers, fishing guides and rafting companies. It also occurred seven months after Exxon Mobil insisted that its pipeline would never rupture because it was buried too deep. Of all the reasons government exists, none is more crucial than trying to keep its citizens safe, whether from a terrorist attack, Wall Streets recklessness or industrial poisoning. Not surprisingly, surveys show that most Americans want their children to grow up drinking clean water and breathing clean air. How, then, to explain the radical hostility of Bachmann, Perry, Newt Gingrich and some of the other Republican candidates? First, its about raising money. The petroleum and coal conglomerates are huge GOP donors, and theyd love to have a president who would gut the EPA. Second, its about politics. To win Republican primaries the theory goes a candidate must fire up the Wingnut Right. The easiest way to do that is to brainlessly bash whatever government does. Perry specializes in this, even though almost half of Texas vaunted employment growth has been in the public sector government jobs, in other words. You wont hear the governor complain about the $200 billion that U.S. taxpayers pump into his states economy annually for military bases and related industries. One thing to emerge from the Republicans attacks on the EPA is the early campaign path of Mitt Romney. Clearly, his strategy is to appear less loony and misinformed than his rivals. Romney says the EPA has an important role, and furthermore he has actually conceded that global warming is a fact. As governor of Massachusetts, Romney expressed interest in a carbon cap-and-trade program, and proposed a plan to cut back on greenhouse gas emissions. Predictably, with the primaries looming, Romney now says he opposes regulating carbon dioxide and other gases linked to climate change. As he and the other GOP candidates begin piling into Florida for the long campaign, pay attention to their rhetoric about the dreaded EPA. The economy here would crumble if the environment was left unprotected. Florida cant survive without tourism, and tourism dies when tar balls and rotting fish turn up on the beaches. What remains of the long-polluted Everglades would also be doomed without a federal regulatory presence, however cumbersome. Doomed, too, would be South Floridas chief source of fresh water, upon which business growth depends not to mention the future of about eight million people. Yet dont be surprised if Perry and Bachmann arrive here clinging to the tea party narrative that government oversight is inherently evil. Theyd like us to kindly forget about that little mishap in the Gulf of Mexico last year, and other manmade though preventable disasters. Its easier to ignore the past and stick to the script, especially if someone else is writing it. Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Save Three Sisters Springs was the watch phrase of the Citrus County community for several years, culminating in the 2010 property acquisition of nearly 58 acres that includes one of the states remaining urban springs, a major tourist draw. Urgent fundraising that supported the Three Sisters efforts included federal, state, local and private contributions. This project was positioned as the right thing to do environmentally, as well as a very smart move for the countys ecotourism industry. Today the property is owned by the city of Crystal River and the Southwest Florida Water Management District, and managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS). The citizen group whose vision drove the fundraising efforts, Friends of the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge Complex, is still closely involved. A year after acquisition, the good news from FWS is that construction of a 1,300-foot boardwalk meandering around the springs is well under way. Refuge managers hope to celebrate National Wildlife Refuge Day, Oct. 22, with completion of the boardwalk as well as a hiking trail on the property. This is great news for Citrus County. While the Three Sisters property has been opened sporadically for special events, the general public hasnt had access. We look forward to the time when at least limited access is available for all of us, as well as for the many out-of-county visitors who have heard about Three Sisters and maybe even contributed to its purchase fund and want to experience the beauty of the area. Three Sisters Springs is an extraordinary public asset. We understand the need to preserve its natural aspects, but we encourage steady progress on developing the touristfriendly amenities we heard about during the fundraising period. Access and milestones should be publicized and celebrated. Ecotourism is a viable economic development strategy, and one we should cultivate, especially in connection with Three Sisters Springs.

Bring our troops home from Germany and Korea and all of the other countries that we have. And they say dont bring them home because we dont have any jobs for them. How about putting them on our borders to protect America? How does that sound? Put them on the borders and protect Americans.Rebuild infrastructureTo the person who wrote in about bringing home our 52,000 troops from Germany, plus those in Japan, Korea and the other foreign countries were not currently at war with, to save money: Yes, bring them home and put them to work refurbishing this country. The bridges are falling apart, the roads look ridiculous I mean, from two lanes into one from four lanes into one. The roads are falling apart all over the country. So are the bridges. Bring them home to build elementary schools in this country for our people. Bring them home to help our people, not the people in Afghanistan and etc. Bring them home to help our people, and pay them, too.Call later To the doctors in the county: It is nice to be reminded of appointments. But the retirees, we dont appreciate calls before 9 a.m. Some of us do sleep in.Managing ferals This is in answer to the person objecting to feral cats being trapped and neutered. Ferals that are neutered live longer and healthier lives. They also get rabies shots when they are trapped and neutered. The three you are feeding can become a large colony of 20 or 30 in two to three years. Just think about that. Are you willing to feed and care for that many?Guards irreplaceableIm calling to find out why there were no crossing guards the other day at the intersection for children to cross. I think we need to have crossing guards every day of the school year. I would rather see crossing guards as opposed to a SWAT vehicle running up and down my block. I would rather have these people on the corners every day when my kids are at school. I think this county needs to really re-evaluate what they do with tax money. I hope this message inspires other people as well. Stolen trailer For the person that stole my 16foot trailer, my utility trailer, my black utility trailer with a burn on the wood, out there at Gardenia in Citrus Springs: All you had to do was ask me to borrow it.

Associated PressHATTERAS, N.C. Tourists began evacuating from a tiny barrier island off North Carolina on Wednesday as Hurricane Irene strengthened to a major category 3 storm over the Bahamas with the East Coast in its sights. So far, things were going smoothly, said Tommy Hutcherson, owner of the Ocracoke Variety Store on Ocracoke Island. Cars had lined up at gas pumps to top off before leaving ahead of Irene, which had winds near 120 mph as of Wednesday afternoon. Irene is expected to get stronger over warm ocean waters and could become a Category 4 storm with winds of at least 131 mph by Thursday. The current forecast has Hurricane Irene moving over the Outer Banks with winds over 100 mph on Saturday. The evacuation was a test of whether people in the crosshairs of the first major hurricane along the East Coast in years would heed orders to get out of the way. As Irene churned in the Caribbean, tourists scurried from hotels in the Bahamian capital of Nassau to catch flights off the island before the airports expected afternoon closure. Officials as far north as Rhode Island and Massachusetts in the U.S. also were getting ready for Irene. The first ferry to leave Ocracoke Island in North Carolina arrived just before 5:30 a.m. in nearby Hatteras with around a dozen cars on board. The 16-mile-long barrier island is accessible only by boats that can carry no more than 50 cars at a time. It is home to about 800 yearround residents and a tourist population that swells into the thousands when vacationers rent rooms and cottages. Tourists were told to evacuate Wednesday. Island residents were told to get out on Thursday. It wasnt clear how many people on the first arriving ferry Wednesday morning were tourists, but the first two cars to drive off had New York and New Jersey plates. Getting off the next ferry about an hour later was a family that included newlywed Jennifer Zaharek, 23, of Torrington, Conn. She and her husband, Andrew, were married Monday and planned to spend their honeymoon on the island. We just got to spend one day on the beach and then we went to bed early to get up for the evacuation, she said. State workers questioned people who tried taking the ferry to the island and turned a few cars around. In addition to the ferry line to Hatteras, there were two other ferry lines that went to and from the island. Federal officials have warned Irene could cause flooding, power outages or worse all along the East Coast as far north as Maine, even if it stays offshore. The projected path has gradually shifted to the east, and Irene could make landfall anywhere from South Carolina to Massachusetts over the weekend. As of 2 p.m. Wednesday, Irene was centered about 250 miles southeast of Nassau in the Bahamas and was moving northwest near 12 mph. Speaking Wednesday on ABCs Good Morning America, Craig Fugate, head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said people as far north as New England should be ready for the storm. When asked about concerns preparing the Northeast for a hurricane, which is uncommon in that part of the country, Fugate cited Tuesdays earthquake that rattled the East Coast. Its a reminder that we dont always get to pick the next disaster. Jobs gone Associated Press Steve Jobs resigned as CEO of Apple Inc., effective immediately, the company said Wednesday. Jobs will be replaced by Tim Cook, who was the companys chief operating officer, officials said. Houston ends red-light camerasHOUSTON Houston has become the latest U.S. city to turn off its red-light traffic cameras, less than a month after Los Angeles did the same. Groups opposed to such cameras say the Houston City Councils vote Wednesday reflects a gradual nationwide trend to abandon the devices, largely because of arguments that the cameras simply generate revenue without improving safety. More than a dozen cities ban the cameras, as do nine states. But supporters say such programs have widespread support, noting that about 500 municipalities still use them. Houston residents voted nine months ago to banish the cameras, which ticket motorists running red lights. The company that operates the program says canceling the contract will cost Houston $25 million. Los Angeles officials decided to end its program because it was losing money. Strike Associated Press A man dressed as Santa Claus is sprayed by a police water cannon Wednesday during clashes after the start of a national strike in Santiago, Chile. His sign reads in Spanish For a constitutional assembly now? Chilean students, opposition politicians and union workers are leading a two-day nationwide strike to fight for fundamental changes in government. U.N. driver jailed for trafficking metalsKINSHASA, Congo A judge in eastern Congo has sentenced a United Nations driver to three years in prison for attempting to traffic in cassiterite, a metal used to make cell phones. T he driver, Julien Paluku, was also fined $25,000. The U.N. has a large peacekeeping mission in Congo with numerous bases in the east, a region rich in minerals, including gold, coltan and cassiterite. A spokesman for the U.N. mission, Madnodje Mounoubai, said the U.N. condemned the crime and agreed to lift the drivers immunity so that he could be judged. The driver was apprehended in a truck carrying more than 2,600 pounds of minerals near the border with Rwanda.

Evacuations began on Ocracoke Island off North Carolina as Hurricane Irene strengthened to a major Category 3 storm over the Bahamas on Wednesday with the East Coast in its sights. D.C. monuments inspected for hidden quake damage Associated PressMINERAL, Va. Office buildings, schools and iconic American landmarks were being inspected Wednesday for possible structural flaws caused by a rare East Coast earthquake, while those near the epicenter nervously waited out aftershocks. Public schools and a handful of federal government buildings in Washington remained closed for further assessment, and engineers were taking a closer look at cracks in the Washington Monument and broken capstones at the National Cathedral. Some residents of D.C. suburbs were staying in shelters because of structural concerns at their apartment buildings. Farther south, Tuesdays 5.8magnitude quake also shattered windows and wrecked buildings near its Virginia epicenter. There were no known deaths or serious injuries. The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency said the quake serves as a reminder for residents to be prepared. We talk about hurricanes this time of year, but we forget that A: earthquakes dont have a season and B: they are not just a western hazard, FEMA administrator Craig Fugate said in an interview Wednesday on ABCs Good Morning America. When the quake struck, many feared terrorism in New York and Washington places where nerves are raw as the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks approaches. The tremblor sent many pouring from high-rises like the Empire State Building. I ran down all 60 flights, accounting office worker Caitlin Trupiano said. I wasnt waiting for the elevator. Chris Kardian, working in his garage in suburban Richmond, Va., not far from the epicenter, opted for the more prosaic and plausible: He blamed the shaking on two of his children in the overhead playroom. I just thought they were running around and being really loud, he said. After about 15 seconds, it didnt stop and I thought, I dont have that many kids in the house! The most powerful earthquake to strike the East Coast in 67 years shook buildings and jarred as many as 12 million people. The U.S. Geological Survey said it was centered 40 miles northwest of Richmond in Mineral, and it has produced at least four aftershocks ranging in magnitude from 2.2. to 4.2. The U.S. Park Service evacuated and closed all monuments and memorials along the National Mall. The Pentagon, the White House, the Capitol and federal agencies in and around Washington were evacuated. Roads out of the city were clogged with commuters headed home. At the majestic Washington National Cathedral, at least three of the four capstones on the central tower fell off, and cracks appeared in the flying buttresses at the cathedrals east end, the oldest part of the structure. The top of the Washington Monument has a crack. Ceiling tiles fell to the floor at Reagan National Airport. The gothic-style Smithsonian Castle, built in 1857, had minor cracks and broken glass. And vigorous shaking left a crack and hole in the ceiling at historic Union Station when a chunk of plaster fell near the main entrance.

A day after an earthquake rattled the nation's capital, officials began assessing the damage to some of the city's oldest and tallest cultural landmarks. Libyan rebels hunt Gadhafi Associated PressTRIPOLI, Libya Libyans hunting Moammar Gadhafi offered a $2 million bounty on the fallen dictators head and amnesty for anyone who kills or captures him as rebels battled Wednesday to clear the last pockets of resistance from the capital Tripoli. While some die-hard loyalists kept up the fight to defend Gadhafi, his support was crumbling by the hour. His deputy intelligence chief defected, and even his foreign minister said his 42-year rule was over. A defiant Gadhafi vowed from hiding to fight on until victory or martyrdom, in an audio message early Wednesday. He may have little choice. Asked by the British broadcaster Channel 4 if a negotiated settlement or safe passage for Gadhafi from Libya was still possible, Foreign Minister Abdul Ati al-Obeidi said: It looks like things have passed this kind of solution. Rebel leaders were beginning to set up a new government in the capital. Their interim administration, the National Transitional Council, has been based in the eastern city of Benghazi, which fell under rebel control shortly after the outbreak of widespread protests in February. Members of the council are now moving one by one from Benghazi to Tripoli, said Mansour Seyf al-Nasr, the Libyan oppositions new ambassador to France. Rebel officials are eager to prove they can bring a stable political future to Libya, and that their movement is more than an often-fractious collection of tribes, ethnicities and semiautonomous militias. Crews slowed by blazing heat in attacking Calif. rail car fire Associated PressLINCOLN, Calif. Firefighters began making a bold attempt Wednesday to drain a burning propane rail tanker but the process to head off a catastrophic explosion was slowed by the fires intense heat The rail blaze kept thousands of people away from their homes for a second day. Lincoln Fire Chief Dave Whitt said crews had hoped to start draining the propane from the tanker into a newly dug retaining hole at around 5 p.m., but he said the process was slowed by the fire. They can only work half an hour at a time, he said. Whitt said the city decided to attempt draining the tanker after consulting with members of a national response team from Houston, who were flown in overnight to offer advice to authorities in the Sacramento suburb of Lincoln. Fire officials said the maneuver could get the blaze under control in 24 to 48 hours.

Associated PressST. PETERSBURG, Fla. Elliot Johnson had a gameending fielders choice in the 10th inning and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Detroit Tigers 3-2 on Wednesday night. Evan Longoria opened the 10th with an infield single off Duane Below (0-2), but was forced out at second on Ben Zobrists grounder. After Matt Joyce struck out, Casey Kotchman was hit by a pitch and pinch-hitter Sean Rodriguez walked to load the bases. Johnson then hit a grounder to third baseman Brandon Inge, who threw to second, where second baseman Ramon Santiago was late getting to the bag. Joel Peralta (3-4) pitched a perfect 10th. Longoria hit a solo homer for the Rays, who entered 05 against Detroit this season. Wade Davis allowed two runs and four hits in nine innings. Detroit got a solo shot from Alex Avila, who has six homers and 16 RBIs in 20 games this month. The Tigers had a five-game winning streak end. The Rays had two on and one out in the ninth, but Below got Johnny Damon to ground into a double play. Damon has hit into just three double plays in 479 at-bats this season. Damon gave the Rays a 2-1 lead on his 2,700th career hit, an RBI double off Max Scherzer in the fifth.

Montana gets to rest up until the U.S. championship game Saturday, while California must face Clinton County, Pa., on Thursday night. Both teams had chances to prevent the game from going into extra innings. California couldnt break through after loading the bases with two outs in the top of the sixth.

Montana and California were locked in a pitchers duel until Askelsons big shot. California starter Nick Pratto struck out nine over four innings, while Montana counterpart Cole McKenzie struck out four over 5 2-3 innings, aided by timely defense. He wiggled out a couple jams, including a basesloaded threat in the second that ended with a runner thrown out at home following a passed ball. California loaded the bases with two outs in the sixth on two walks and a hit batter, but the Montana fans breathed a collective sigh of relief after Hagen Danner lined the first pitch from reliever Sean Jones right to Askelson in left for the inning-ending out. In the opener, Ruizs homer to center off a 2-0 pitch in the ninth broke up another pitchers duel.

Nobodys questioning TimTebows character or work ethic, just his readiness. The Denver Broncos have concluded hes not set to start in the NFL, but that doesnt mean theyre ready to cut ties with him. The latest twist in Denvers summer soap opera is rampant speculation that the Broncos will try to trade or even waive the second-year pro from Florida whose popularity still trumps his polish. That makes little football or financial sense. Hes the only quarterback on the roster whos under contract after this season. Earlier this month he received a $6.275 million bonus and his salaries through 2014 are very palatable. So, the Broncos can continue to have patience and see if this project that former coach Josh McDaniels thrust upon them might eventually pan out. Some of Tebows supporters are starting to see the Broncos as the bad guys in all this. Because the Broncos dont share his rabid fans unbridled enthusiasm and blind faith in the quarterbacks ability to win right away, the feeling among his staunchest supporters is that the Broncos must have a problem withT ebows personality, not his play. Why else would they refuse to anoint Tebow, one of the most accomplished and beloved players in the history of college football, as the starter over Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn, two quarterbacks with losing career records who dont share Tebows winning pedigree? Because Orton is better, by any meaningful measure, right now. And it looks like Quinn is, too. Tebow has had a bad training camp. He never came close to challenging Orton for the starting job and appears to have even slipped behind Quinn on the depth chart, although he has two preseason games left to win the backup job. When John Elway was hired as the Broncos front office football chief in January, he speculated that Tebow would be hurt more than anyone on the roster by a long lockout, and he was right. In the NFL, jobs are earned. Fox would lose his locker room if he handed a starting job to anyone who wasnt performing the best at his position. Remember, even McDaniels didnt turn to Tebow last year. It wasnt until Orton got hurt and McDaniels got fired that Tebow got his chance. He ran with it, just not far enough to keep it. If it were up to the fans decked out in No. 15 jerseys, Orton would be the one patrolling the sidelines. Thank God the people dont make the decisions, Orton said. Fox does, and when he named Orton his starter this week, he declined to name a No. 2. And he doesnt have to anymore, either, because all three quarterbacks can be active on game days and can play. I believe I can help the team in a lot of different ways, Tebow said. So, whatever they ask me to do, theyll have my whole heart. Right now what theyre asking him to do is keep working hard to iron out the kinks.

A s this is written, Hurricane Irene is not expected to pose a major threat to Florida. The key words there are not expected and major. As for the former, the adage has it that the only thing predictable about hurricanes is their unpredictability, and the latter depends on ones definition of major. If Irene continues on her current course, the east coast of Florida will probably experience some high winds and minor flooding. (See above; one flooded house may be minor damage to emergency personnel, but its major to the owners of that house.) Its likely Irene will only brush the state, and that any landfall will be with the left side of the storm (with Irene moving northward, that would be the western edge), where winds and waves are usually the least damaging. Old-timers are ho-humming right about now, but every year that passes without a hurricane making landfall in Florida sees an increase in the number of newer residents who have never been through one and simply dont appreciate the danger. If youre one of the latter, dont let the former lull you into an unwarranted sense of security, because that leads to complacency, and that way lies trouble. While a hurricanes outer rain bands are often less than 100 miles from its center (Andrew, for example), Hurricane Gilberts bands extended more than 500 miles out. To put that in perspective, at our latitude the distance from the Gulf to the Atlantic is 100 miles. Ill leave the warnings about having fresh batteries, water, etc., on hand to the regular media, but Id like to address some concerns unique to boaters, courtesy, for the most part, of the Florida Fish and Game Conservation Commission, which has already issued advisories for boat owners to be sure docked or moored boats are properly secured. We dont need boats breaking free to drift into bridges, docks or other boats, possibly spilling fuel in the process or, worse yet, causing injuries. In addition to the fact that it isnt nice to damage your neighbors dock, do you really want your boat beating itself against pilings, or getting stuck under a dock as the tide rises? If your boat is kept on a trailer, you may feel you have no worries, and that might be true if the trailers kept in a garage or outbuilding, but if its behind a shed or on your carport, it could still have problems. In that case, FWC advises you move the trailer to a secure location, let some air out of the tires, block the wheels (you can use the same chocks you keep handy in case you need them at a launching ramp) and, if possible, anchor the trailer down, add extra tie-downs to the boat, and maybe add weight to keep things in place. You can learn more about mooring vessels, reporting debris or other navigation problems, such as damaged buoys, at www.myfwc.com/ boating. * A couple of years ago, when I first brought the ima Skimmer to the attention of my readers, quite a few were skeptical because of the price. I encouraged them to give it a try anyway, since it had become my No. 1 walk-the-dog topwater bait. One reader who did was Gary Rankel, a highly successful redfish and trout angler in local waters. Now its his No. 1, but last week his worst fears nearly came to realization when a young bull shark nailed it. R-G, he said in an email, it took 40 minutes to get him in with my 10-poundtest braid and 20-pound fluorocarbon leader, which was frayed up pretty good, but managed to hold up. I asked if hed been able to get a measurement, and he said he hadnt, but the fish did not fit across his 26inch-beam kayak. Yeah, a shark on a topwater plug out of a kayak. Some folks have all the luck. Im glad he wasnt much bigger, Rankel added, or Id have had to cut the line and lose my 17-dollar Skimmer. That would have made many Nature Coast reds and trout very happy, indeed. * Its that time of year when myriad species join the locals to add some spice and variety to the angling experience. The bluefish and Spanish mackerel that have been spotty all summer will start to increase in numbers, supplemented by little tunny (also called Florida bonito, not to be confused with Atlantic bonito), which are not only a challenge with the right tackle, but make excellent table fare. Treat all three as voracious feeders who feel if it shines and its moving, its food, and you should be able to catch all you want. A short piece of wire leader is a good idea to prevent cutoffs.

Tide charts D AN H ERMES For the ChronicleI nverness angler George Kapiton recently placed 17th in the co-angler division at the FLWs Forrest Wood Cup on Lake Ouachita in Hot Springs, Arkansas. The win netted Kapiton, who is in his first year of full-time fishing, $3,000 in earnings. The winner on the boater side, Scott Martin of Clewiston, Florida, won the top prize of $600,000. Martin is the son of legendary bass angler Roland Martin. The Forrest Wood Cup, part of Wal-Marts FLW Outdoors, is one of the holy grail events for bass fishermen. Thousands of anglers compete across the nation to qualify for the yearly event, and it takes consistent top-10 finishes to achieve enough qualifying points to compete. Kapiton, fishing as a coangler, finished the three-day event with eight bass that weighed in at 16.01 pounds. The first day the weather was crappy, but it made the fish bite, Kapiton said about fishing conditions on Lake Ouachita, Arkansas largest body of water at 40,000-plus acres. Then it cleared up the next two days and the fishing got tougher. On the first day of the event, Kapiton was using topwater baits, but they failed to produce. He switched to a fluke and it paid off handsomely, with a five-fish bag weighing 11.8 pounds, good for fourth place. Day two of the event, and a different boating partner, Kapiton struggled with only one fish. Only the top 20 fishermen advance to the final day. I caught that keeper in the first 15 minutes, but the guy I was fishing with was working the bank pretty hard with topwaters, Kapiton said. I thought that after the first day, I might be able to qualify for the final even if I didnt catch a fish on day two. My goal was to make the top 20, so I was able to achieve that. On the third day, Kapiton caught two schooling bass late in the day en route to his 16.01-pound overall bag. There are two categories for fishermen on the pro circuits: the boater/pro side and the co-angler side. The boater controls the boat and decides where to fish, while the co-angler is in the back of the boat and literally fishes behind the boater. Its tough fishing behind the boater sometimes, Kapitonsaid about his co-angler status. But you go out there and try to stay positive. The next stop is Sept. 15 on New Yorks Lake Champlain for an FLW Tour Open event. Kapiton is currently leading the co-angler points race in that division with a 20-point lead, and in October, Kapiton will be fishing at Guntersville in an FLW Tour Open on Oct. 20 and in the EverStart Championship Series at Kentucky Lake as a boater on Oct. 27. It will be a grueling schedule, but Kapiton is ready to make his mark. If I win that (EverStart Championship), I qualify for next years Forrest Wood Cup as a boater, Kapiton added. And if I finish in the top five in points at the FLW Tour Open, I will qualify as a co-angler. That is how I qualified this year. You can bet that Kapiton would definitely like to be in control of the boat at next years Forrest Wood Cup. With a payout of $600,000 to the winner, the event could prove to be a life-changing moment. Its a big advantage when you are in the front of the boat, Kapiton said with a laugh. Kapitons sixth-place finish this year at the Bass Fishing League All-American tournament will air on VERSUS Sunday, Oct. 9 at 1 p.m., while the Forrest Wood Cup event is slated to be televised on Sept. 25 at 1 p.m. Kapiton has amassed $84,420 in career earnings on the fish-for-pay circuit, and is looking for sponsorships. He can be reached at (352) 302-7894. R.G. Schmidt TIGHT LINES Visiting species add spice for local anglers In first year, Kapiton reels in wins DAVID A.

Pelfrey pitched effectively, Nick Evans and David Wright homered and the New York Mets snapped a five-game losing streak with a 7-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday. The Mets avoided a sweep with their sixth win in 23 games. He came off the field after the fifth and said, I got one more, Mets manager Terry Collins said. I needed one more. He got us to where we needed. That was huge for him. Pelfrey (7-10) allowed three runs and nine hits. He nearly caused benches to empty in the sixth when he took exception to the way Placido Polanco turned away from an inside pitch. Pelfrey, who has a history of hostility toward the Phillies, motioned toward Polanco, who said something back. Catcher Josh Thole stepped in front of Polanco and the confrontation didnt escalate. I hung a slider. I thought he tried to lean into it. I said: Dont lean into it. He said he didnt. Done, said Pelfrey. Athletics 6, Yankees 4 (10)NEW YORK Coco Crisp homered twice and drove in five runs, going 4 for 4 with a three-run shot in the 10th inning that sent the Oakland Athletics to a 6-4 win over the New York Yankees on Wednesday night. The loss knocked the Yankees out of first place in the AL East, dropping them behind Boston when the Red Sox finished a 13-2 rout of Texas. No. 9 batter Scott Sizemore was 4 for 4 with a tying double off CC Sabathia in the eighth and Oakland won at Yankee Stadium for the second consecutive night to clinch a series victory. The As had lost 10 straight series against New York, an Oakland record for futility against any team. Nick Swisher homered twice and Mark Teixeira also connected for the Yankees, who began the night two percentage points ahead of Boston. New York had dropped only two of its previous 20 series since June 10. Oakland goes for a three-game sweep Thursday afternoon with Rich Harden on the mound, and the Yankees hope to have slugger Alex Rodriguez back. He has missed the first two games because of a sprained left thumb. Trevor Cahill finally held New York in check and the As improved to 7-26 against the Yankees since 2008. The last time Oakland won a series against New York was the summer of 2007, when they took two of three at old Yankee Stadium. Crisp walked during a perfect night at the plate and matched his career highs for hits and RBIs. The As have won six of eight following a four-game skid. Fautino De Los Santos (2-0) struck out two in a perfect ninth for the win. Andrew Bailey earned his 18th save in 20 chances, closing out the Yankees for the second straight night. He gave up a solo shot with two outs to Swisher.

Crawford matched a career high with his five RBIs. Josh Beckett (11-5) allowed one run and four hits over six innings.

The Colts agreed to terms Wednesday with Kerry Collins, making him the likely starter in case Peyton Manning hasnt completely recovered from offseason neck surgery when the season opens Sept. 11. Collins said he has been given no indication that Manning wont play at Houston. Collins agreed to a one-year contract and acknowledged he could be talked into staying longer than 2011. Not everyone in the Colts locker room is enamored with the move. We dont even know him, we aint vanilla, man, we aint no simple offense, receiver Reggie Wayne said. So for him to come in here and be the starter, I dont see it.

S ANDYC OHEN AP Entertainment WriterLOS ANGELES Al Pacino says he got burned while making Scarface. Literally, he grabbed the hot barrel of a gun that had just shot 30 rounds during one of Tony Montanas violent scenes. My hand stuck to that sucker, the 71-year-old actor recalled. He couldnt work for two weeks. Pacino relayed the experience during a discussion with Scarface co-stars Steven Bauer, Robert Loggia and F. Murray Abraham and producer Martin Bregman at a party Tuesday heralding the films Blu-ray release. Part of the charm of the film, Pacino said, is that it wasnt initially a hit. Its one of my favorites because of its whole evolution, he said. It (was) sort of eviscerated after it opened by the press. ... Nobody was fond of it, except it had good audience participation. He said its almost a miracle audiences continue to discover and appreciate the film. He wanted to make it after being inspired by Paul Munis performance in the 1932 original. Sidney Lumet suggested he make the main character Cuban instead of Italian. Pacinos Scarface is set in 1980s Miami, and Tony Montana is an ambitious immigrant who runs a growing drug empire until he eventually collapses under greed and addiction. Pacinos performance as the gun-wielding, coke-snorting Montana is among his most memorable. He said that during the nine months he was shooting the film, his character practically inhabited him. When a friends yappy little dog lunged at him, Pacino said he cocked back his fist instinctively, as if threatening a punch. So I love Tony Montana, man, because I couldnt do that! Pacino said Tuesday. Bregman called Scarface a perfect, perfect movie. Its timeless themes of greed, desire and ambition would make it controversial even if it were just released today, Pacino said. Screenwriter Oliver Stone and director Brian De Palma were both trying to talk about the avarice of the s, Pacino said. At that time, there was this whole thing about greed, which was Wall Street and everything, and I think thats part of it. A great character, too, Tony Montana a person who dares to do anything, who flies like a Phoenix, like Icarus, close to the sun. The Blu-ray will be released Sept. 6. Scarface is also set to play at 475 theaters nationwide on Aug. 31 for a special one-night engagement. Say hello to my little friend! Birthday: Because you could be operating in some of the higher financial realms during the next year, it doesnt mean its OK for you to take some wild gambles. Study the issues at hand and make your moves very slowly. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Youre usually more secure doing things along traditional lines, rather than toying with new methods or procedures. However, you could learn something new by going out on a limb a bit. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You might feel that doing things the usual way is boring, and even though youre yearning to try something different, youll stick by tradition. Youll be glad you did. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Dont be surprised if some sparks fly in a relationship that youve been treating rather casually. Its merely that youll finally be seeing someone for the wonderful person he or she is. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Your material desires can be fulfilled by knowing exactly what you want and how to go about getting it. Make a sound plan first. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If youre not quite sure how to accomplish a big job using the new way that everybody is trying, you had better stick to the slower but proven method. At least the work will get done. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Although youre likely to be rather fortunate financially right now, dont take any wild gambles on anything. And when you do make a significant outlay, be sure to investigate every aspect first. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Even if the unexpected might annoy and frustrate you, when it comes to investments you arent likely to be tripped up. This doesnt mean you should go hog wild. Aries (March 21-April 19) Without even trying, youre likely to be the one who can easily influence others. Use this power to encourage someone you love to better themselves or try something new. Taurus (April 20-May 20) You should pay attention to your behavior toward others, to your tone of voice and what you have to offer. You can make a good, lasting impression when you use your talents to help those around you. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Be flexible and willing to do things the way others want them handled, even if you have to depart from your preferred methods. Who knows, you might find a new way of doing something. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Stand by your old pal rather than side with someone new when trying to resolve an issue or make a decision. Loyalty is more important than whose thinking is better or worse. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Try not to be too easygoing with your funds. You are likely to be amazed by how much mileage you can get out of your dollars when youre more careful than usual about your spending. Del Toros afraid of day, not darkNEW YORK Guillermo del Toro is the mastermind behind Dont Be Afraid of the Dark, in U.S. theaters this weekend, but he says his own scariest time is during broad daylight. Del Toro acknowledged in a recent interview that his nighttime dreams are actually very boring. Instead, the Oscar-winning producer, director and screenwriter said he has an overactive imagination in the day: a horrible condition because he always is overreacting to something. Del Toro produced the film and co-wrote the screenplay, which he says is very close to his heart and took more than 16 years finally to get into theaters. It is based on a 1973 television movie of the same name, which del Toro says was the scariest movie he saw as a young boy.Stiller to receive comedy award LOS ANGELES Ben Stiller is being honored for his comedic contributions by the British Academy of Film and Television.

Paintings of enthusiastic socialist laborers. A huge red star that graced Communist Party headquarters. As Europe marks the 20th anniversary of the Soviet collapse, this nation thats still shaking off its troubled communist legacy is opening a museum dedicated to the totalitarian past. A debates raging on whether the museum romanticizes the Soviet era or teaches new generations about its horrors. Other former communist countries like the Czech Republic and Hungary have long had similar museums; the fact its taken Bulgaria this long to open one is a sign of its fraught transition to democracy. Pulled out of cellars and warehouses, more than 100 artworks will be put on display in the museum that opens next month in a Sofia suburb, and will showcase a period of Bulgarias history when art had to be created in line with strict ideological rules. Along with the statues and busts of communist leaders, there are also oil paintings exalting the supposed eternal friendship between Bulgaria and the Soviet Union. Bulgarias government recently adopted an ambitious strategy to promote the capital, Sofia, as an attractive culture and travel destination. Along with the museum of totalitarian art, the initiative also includes a museum of contemporary art and a museum dubbed the Bulgarian Louvre, which is to showcase the best of the countrys culture stretching back to antiquity. A new generation will emerge, young and pure, which must not be deprived of the history and heritage of its people, said Culture Minister Vezhdi Rashidov. He said much of the socialist art goes beyond propaganda. Many of the objects here have a high art value, said Rashidov, himself a wellknown sculptor and a driver of the project in which the state has invested $2.1 million. The project had been presented for months as a Museum of Totalitarian Art. Ahead of its opening, however, workers fashioned stone letters on the main wall spelling out its new name: Museum of Socialist Art. The sudden switch has some critics complaining of a whitewash carried out by a Bulgarian political elite with roots in the communist past. A feature of the Bulgarian transition is that it was organized by the communist nomenclature itself and controlled by the structures of the former secret services, said Andrey Kovachev, a Bulgarian Euro pean parliamentarian. The history debate was frozen and overshadowed by nostalgia for the repressive dictatorship, driven by its successors.

Chronicle staffSeven restaurants and pubs are competing in the Battle of the Burgers, a contest to determine who has the best beef creation in Citrus County.

The selection above center is Sweet Pickles with Jessies Holy Mol Guacamole Burger. WHOHASTHE Julianne Munn OVER EASY Thinking back to teenage favorites I ts fun to think back about jobs you had as a teenager. And while I was reminiscing recently, old fashioned drive-ins came to mind a far cry from todays fastfood service. My first car-hop job was about age 14 at a B & K Root Beer stand. I earned 40 cents an hour and all the root beer and Spanish hot dogs I could eat. And boy! That was some delicious root beer and dogs. The old B & K and A & W root beer eateries are few and far between these days, but the sweet/tangy taste of that wonderful hot dog sauce lingers on. A bit of Internet surfing turned up the following recipe said to be a replica of the original B & K topping. I thought nostalgia fans might be interested: SPANISH HOT DOG SAUCE 2 pounds lean ground beef 4 cups water 2 cups Hunts (no substitutes) ketchup 4 1/2 teaspoons chili powder 2 tablespoons white vinegar 1/4 cup onion, diced fine 1 teaspoon salt Do not cook hamburger meat first. Mix raw hamburger with the water and add all the ingredients together in a pot. Simmer for 1 hour. Spoon over hot dogs, or delicious served on a bun by itself. This makes a lot, but the recipe can be halved. I have to say the 40 cents an hour was pretty low even by pay standards of that time, but it was a fun summer job. And the owners were great fun, a young couple trying to make a go of their first business venture. There was a host of summer and after-school jobs back in the s, mostly in restaurants. The pay was miniscule, but then you could see a movie complete with butter popcorn for less than 50 cents, and gas for the car was about a quarter a gallon. And at least in smaller cities no one was afraid to allow their kids to leave the premises in those times and there was plenty to do just being out and about. I recall another hometown drive-in favorite with the teen group, a place where burgers were made fresh daily (not frozen hockey pucks) and the French fries were served hot and salty from potatoes peeled and cut by hand every day. Didnt get much better than that. There was an A & W Root Beer stand, too, and an always busy Azars Big Boy, where fresh strawberry pie was the signature dessert. Remember those pies? Huge confections with big berries covered with a red glaze and piled high with whipped cream. Another part-time job was in a downtown drugstore soda fountain where sloppy joes and lime ice cream sodas were my favorite treats.

(352) 795-3653 For the purists, machosize burgers at the Fat Cat Grill are grilled to juicy goodness, owner and chef Mark Secker said, over a blend of mesquite, hickory and oak woods in a woodfired grill. The all-natural, grass-fed beef burger originates from the Harris Ranch in California and is topped with smoked bacon and blue cheese crumbles with condiments served on the side. At Castaways, several miles north of Crystal River, the half-pound Belly Buster burger is supreme, owner Pam Finley explained. The Black Angus burger is topped with grilled onions, mushrooms, green pepper and American cheese and served on a grilled Kaiser roll. If you hanker for a taste of the Southwest, then the Jessies Holy Mol Guacamole Burger is the way to go. Sweet Pickles owner Donna Ezrow said the burger is topped with Mexican cheese, creamy guacamole and a holy trinity of roasted peppers, garlic and onions, served up with a side of adobo seasoning nacho chips. Just north of the Citrus County line on State Road 40 west of U.S. 19, Our Pub folks believe they have a winner with their All-American fresh, hand-pressed half-pound burger topped with grilled mushrooms, bacon and American cheese and served on a potato Kaiser roll, according to Jen Ralph, daughter of longtime owner Donna Roulier. There are two Beef OBradys in the competition and the Crystal River eatery features its OMG burger, a 12-ounce Black Angus patty topped with four slices of bacon, four slices of American cheese, plus tomato and lettuce. OBradys in Inverness serves its 12-ounce Black Angus burger on toasted Brioche buns topped with American cheese, bacon, tomato and lettuce and any other condiments patrons desire. Whatever your personal taste dictates, it would be hard to go wrong with any of the competing sandwiches in the Battle of the Burger contest. Check out the choices before Sept. 5 and file away the following tips from www. beefitswhatsfordinner.com on how to ensure your homemade burgers can be improved: Lightly shape 1 1/2 pounds ground beef into four 3/4-inch patties. Use a gentle touch to prevent over mixing that can make the patties tough. Place patties on a grid over medium ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 13 to 15 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 13 to 15 minutes) until instant read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160 degrees, turning occasionally with a spatula. Do not press; pressing causes loss of juices. About 2 minutes before burgers are done, place four burger buns, cut sides down, on grid. Grill until lightly toasted. Top burgers as desired. Note: Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness. To build your own burger, here are a couple ideas: Bruchetta Burgers: Toss chopped red and yellow tomatoes with fresh basil and minced garlic. Place grilled burgers on toasted French bread slices and top with mixture. Chipotle Burgers: Mash 2 tablespoons canned chipotle peppers with fork. Stir in 1/2 cup mayonnaise and spread on toasted buns. Add burgers, tomato slices and pepper Jack cheese. California Burgers: Garnish burgers with grilled onions, sliced avocados and alfalfa sprouts. Serve between slices of sourdough bread. Julianne Munn is the food writer for the Citrus County Chronicle. Email her at jmunn2@tampabay.rr.com.

Though it was a small BURGER Continued from Page C1 A ccording to one economist no, I am not going to address the national debt a war is going on in the wine world between the McWine forces of global marketing and what the author, Mike Veseth, calls the terrorists. Boiled down, Veseth contends wine commerce is a contest between huge corporations such as Gallo and Constellation (the big two in worldwide distribution) and traditionalists, the smaller, often family-operated wineries who believe in the principles of terroir (the deeply held faith in land and environment as the real meaning of wine creation) counter to the notion of McWine an attitude reeking of the more the merrier, and devil take the hindmost. In just a few words, I have over simplified what is a great book by a really smart guy on the big business of selling wine. Who among us is not befuddled and at times intimidated by the considerable variety of labels on the shelves nowadays? I know I am, and I have been at it for umpteen years. It seems a week does not pass without some funky new label showing up. Every wine shop worthy of the name boasts a display to befuddle the average consumer. Think about the huge inventories of such outlets as Sams, and the ABC stores as well as local supermarkets, all competing for your business. In coming weeks, I am going to expand on professor Veseths most original thoughts, on such topics as The Curse of the Blue Nun, the Da Vino Code, a Tale of Two Glasses and the intriguing analysis of the phenomenon known as Two Buck Chuck. But for now, here are a few fascinating facts from this little book. Did you know, for example, what restaurant chain sells the most wine in America? The answer is The Olive Garden. I like the Olive Garden but never have paid much attention to its wine list. So, it was a revelation to learn wine sales exceed a half million cases a year, thats 60 million bottles. Long story short, management teaches the serving staff and works to educate customers by giving away some 30 thousand cases of wine a year in the form of samples. The approach is, try it, youll like it. Were you aware the Gallo company, a familyowned business, in addition to the namesake brand, also markets the 3 liter Carlo Rossi, and a portfolio including Turning Leaf, Barefoot Cellars, Redwood Creek, Dancing Bull, Rancho Zabaco, MacMurray Ranch, upscale Gallo of Sonoma, Louis Martini (good Cabernet) and Mirrassou. While in the sparkling category, there is Andre and Ballatore, imports such as Ecco Domani from Italy, Black Swan and McWilliams from Australia, and a bunch of others too numerous to cite here. These target almost every commercial price point. As to the future of wine, Veseth cites an article by a number of astute wine buyers who predict in the next 50 years China will become the largest producer of wine. Because of global warming (if you credit this theory of climate change), vineyards will move north and south to extremes such as Norway for Champagne (the French wont stomach it) and south to Tasmania, with Australia all dried out. Will Alaska become Americas next biggest wine producer? They predict also the dumbing down of wine, with the exception of a few trophy labels, so the shopping aisles will appeal to an unsophisticated mass market. Expect to find lite wines that taste better, but are less filling. Corks will be gone and so will most bottles. Wine will come in cardboard boxes, just press the spigot. Transport will change from truck and train to giant wine tankers carrying 200,000 gallon or more of fermented juice rivaling todays oil haulers. The fish will love those spills. Prices will continue to spiral upward. In the super premium market, the $10,000 case at todays auction may bring a stupendous $1,000,000,000! Well so be it. Who knows what the future will bring? As outlandish as these predictions may seem, who back in the 1930s right after the repeal of prohibition could have predicted what is taking place in this 21st century wine economy. Stay tuned gentle readers, theres a lot more to come. Oak Ridge resident Ron Drinkhouse was a buyer and seller of wines in his native Connecticut.

J.M. HIRSCH AP Food Editor When constructing a great salad, Alice Waters wants it to be fresh. Really fresh. I want salad that has just been picked, that has a feeling of aliveness to it, Waters said in a recent email interview. I like a mix of colors and textures of lettuces and herbs bibb, young romaine, frisee, oak leaf, mint. The quality of the oil, vinegar, fresh garlic and salt is vital! And Waters the woman behind the iconic Berkeley, Calif., restaurant Chez Panisse doesnt hesitate to eat salad whenever the mood strikes. I eat salad with every meal, as a first course, or in a little pile along with the main dish, or before dessert, she said. And I eat it for lunch and breakfast! For the APs 20 Salads of Summer series, Waters offered a simple but stunning heirloom and cherry tomato salad. I am always thinking a number of questions when I set out to make this, she said. First, what month is it? Are the tomatoes dead ripe? Which varietals are the ripest? Is the garlic fresh? What sort of fruity olive oil do I have to use? The recipe is delicious as written, but Waters also likes to dress it with freshly made aioli, a recipe for which follows the salad recipe. I make my aioli in a mortar. I smash the garlic clove to a paste first, then take a little out to add back in later, if it needs it. Then I slice the tomatoes, season with salt, thin the aioli with a little water and drizzle it over, and sprinkle with chopped parsley. HEIRLOOM AND CHERRY TOMATO SALAD When we made this delicious salad, we didnt have the optional lemon cucumbers or torpedo onions. But we found half of a medium red onion and three baby cucumbers, peeled and seeded, were fine substitutes. 1/2 pint assorted cherry tomatoes, halved 2 pounds heirloom tomatoes, different colors and sizes, cored and cut into wedges or slices 1 shallot, finely diced 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar 1 clove garlic, smashed Salt 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil Ground black pepper Green and purple basil leaves, chopped Lemon cucumbers and torpedo onions (optional) Arrange the tomatoes in a shallow bowl or on a platter. Set aside. To make the vinaigrette, in a small bowl macerate the shallot in the vinegar with the garlic and a little salt for 15 minutes. Whisk in the oil. Taste and adjust the acidity and the salt as necessary. Season the tomatoes with salt and pepper, then sprinkle on the chopped basil leaves. Carefully dress with the vinaigrette. Thin slices of peeled lemon cucumber and torpedo onion are wonderful additions to the salad. From start to finish, it takes 25 minutes and serves four. AIOLI 2 or 3 small garlic cloves Pinch of salt 1 egg yolk 1/2 teaspoon water 1 cup olive oil Using a mortar and pestle, pound the garlic and salt until smooth. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolk, half of the garlic paste and the water. Whisking constantly, slowly dribble the oil into the egg yolk mixture. As the egg yolk absorbs the oil, the sauce will thicken, lighten in color and become opaque. This will happen rather quickly. Then you can add the oil a little faster, whisking all the while. If the sauce is thicker than you like, thin it with a few drops of water. Taste and add more salt and garlic as desired. From start to finish, it takes 5 minutes and makes 1 1/4 cups. T he laundry is on the line and we have a nice sunny day to dry it. Mornings have been cool with temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s. It warms up during the day, but it sure makes for nice sleeping weather at night. We had a busy week last week with lots of home-canning on the list. We canned salsa and tomato juice. We also put peaches into the freezer. I still have plenty canned. I put some orange juice concentrate and sugar on the sliced peaches for the freezer. It gives it a little orange flavor in the peaches. I fill a lot of small containers, so I can put them in Joes lunch or the childrens for school sometimes. This week, I will can some more hot peppers. Our favorite are Serranos. They dont seem quite as hot as the jalapenos, but I will still can some jalapeno and banana peppers. On Friday, the childrens school took two busloads to the zoo as part of a summer field trip. Benjamin, Loretta, Joseph, Lovina and Kevin all went along. They went to the zoo in Toledo, Ohio. They sure enjoyed their day and had lots to talk about when they came home around 5:30 p.m. School doors will open again in a little over two weeks. This summer went way too fast, it seems like school just let out for the term. Daughter Verena, 13, is still doing OK and she will have her cast removed on Sept. 15 if all goes well. Meanwhile, sisters Verena and Susan had our family together for a belated 2010 Christmas gathering at their place Saturday. All of us siblings take turns, rotating from oldest to youngest who holds the annual gathering. Verena and Susan wouldnt have enough room to have us all together in the winter time, so they decided to wait until summer. They had the community tent shared by 3 churches in this area up and had the gathering in there. Our family total comes to 82 now, but four grandchildren and families were not present. Uncle Jake and Mary Coblentz from Wisconsin stopped in and stayed for dinner too. In all, the total was 75, with the family from nephew Ben from Wisconsin traveling the farthest. The dinner menu was mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, barbecued chicken, corn, cole slaw, cucumber salad, veggies and dip, cake, pecan, blueberry, cherry and oatmeal pies, butterscotch pudding, Oreo cookie dessert, mixed fresh fruit, finger Jell-O, cookies, etc. The 2011 family gathering will be at Paul and Leahs unless they decide to wait until summer also. The afternoon was spent playing games. Susan and Verena had lots of gifts for the winners. We also had plenty of snacks to eat. Susan and Verena had a pinata for the younger children to enjoy. It made for a lot of excitement when it broke and the candy flew everywhere. Uncle Joe and Aunt Betty Coblentz came to visit after dinner. Brother Amoss daughter Mary Jane has been in the hospital since Wednesday due to having complications with her gall bladder. Plans are to do surgery today to remove her gall bladder. Mary Jane and her husband have two boys. The baby is 4 months old and their other son is 2 years old. Brother Amos and Nancy are taking care of their two grandchildren while Mary Jane is hospitalized. They had them along at the gathering. We wish Mary Jane a complete and speedy recovery. Yesterday afternoon, sister Susan had invited our church, cousins and friends for sister Verenas 45th birthday, which is today.

Special to the ChronicleIn 1980, Philip Morris, the top U.S. tobacco company and maker of Marlboro cigarettes, hired research scientist Dr. Victor DeNoble to come up with a nicotine analogue, a substance that would mimic nicotines effects on the brain but not affect the heart. In other words, find the key to a socalled safer cigarette. Within four years, DeNobles research team produced promising results. But the scientist also recognized nicotines reinforcing properties. His work provided evidence of the addictive nature of nicotine at a time when the big tobacco companies were still maintaining that cigarettes were safe and nonaddicting. DeNoble was preparing to publish his results when Philip Morris abruptly closed his lab, confiscated his data and fired him. A confidentiality agreement kept DeNoble from speaking out until 1994, when he was released from it by the U.S. Congress investigating Big Tobaccos cover-up. His testimony helped build the case that led to tobacco industrys $246 billion settlement agreement in 1998. Since then, DeNoble has devoted his efforts to educating youths, community members and health care workers on the dangers of nicotine use and addiction, and telling the insider story of Big Tobaccos tactics. He delivers dramatic presentations, complete with an unusual show-andtell twist, to hundreds of thousands a year in stops all across the country. This key Big Tobacco whistleblower is coming to Citrus County and the public is invited to hear his presentation. DeNoble will be at Withlacoochee Technical Institute in Inverness on Tuesday, Aug. 30. He will speak three times so as to accommodate varying schedules: Presentations will be at 9 and 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. The free sessions are sponsored through the Tobacco-Free Partnership of Citrus County.

They boarded planes and subways, sat at their office desks, drove patrol cars or sat in fire engines, unaware they would never be returning home. Plans are under way to place a permanent memorial at Liberty Park in Inverness for the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The memorial, to be constructed by Central Florida Monument Co., will be erected near the front of the park and will feature a piece of steel from the World Trade Center towers in New York City. The steel was obtained by Andy Tarpey, a retired New York Port Authority officer who had several colleagues killed in the WTC attacks. Every Sept. 11, Tarpey and members of the National Association of Retired Law Enforcement Officers (NARLEO) put together a memorial exhibit inside the Inverness City Council chamber, featuring artifacts from the attacks that include the piece of steel. The exhibit has become one of the largest private collections commemorating the tragic events, and draws hundreds of visitors each year. Tarpey and others along with the city of Inverness are collecting donations for the memorial. The approximate cost to build the monument is $10,000. The memorial will include an inscription that reads: Dedicated to the courage, strength and indomitable American spirit of those who perished and those who persevered during the events of September 11, 2001.

C6 T HURSDAY, A UGUST 25, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT There have been many quotations about losers. There have been many bridge deals about losers both the tricks and the players. Here is another one. How should South plan the play in four spades? West leads the heart ace, cashes the heart king and, noting his partners high-low to show a doubleton, continues with the heart jack. The auction is instructive. After Wests one-heart opening is passed around to South, he balances with a one-spade overcall. (He is nearly worth a takeout double, planning to rebid in spades.) Then West makes a takeout double, showing a three-suiter short in spades. (Note that a two-heart rebid would have put all of his eggs in one basket. The double was more flexible, perhaps permitting East to show a long minor suit.) When North raised to two spades, South made a try for game with three clubs, which North accepted with four trumps and a fitting club honor. What should declarer do at trick three? He has lost two tricks and is faced with an unavoidable club loser. If he ruffs the third heart with dummys four or 10, it will be fatal if East overruffs. And trumping with dummys king will be costly if either opponent started with jack-third of spades. South should realize he has a better play, discarding a club from the dummy. Then he can get in, draw trumps, cash his two club winners, and ruff his last club in the dummy. The loser-on-loser play is easy to miss keep an eye open for it.

I was president of my sorority, a peer mentor at our advising center and active in many organizations. I also was granted many awards and honors. I loved rushing around with little sleep and juggling many things on my plate. Now my life is a different story. I struggle with severe clinical depression and debilitating anxiety. After graduating, I took a job that pays well and I met a great guy. On paper, my life sounds pretty good. But my job makes me miserable, and I dread going into work. There are few compliments and a ton of complaints. We work six days a week, which leaves little time to maintain friendships. When I get home at the end of the day, I feel like a failure, and all I want to do is curl up in bed. Downtime creates anxiety, which triggers my depression and leaves me crying all day. I realize I cannot go back to the halcyon days of college and that it is unhealthy to keep looking backward. But I feel as if I am grieving for the life I used to have. How do I move on? I am on antidepressants and am seeing a counselor, so I am working on treating my depression and anxiety, but I still feel hopeless. Wish There Was a Time Machine Dear Wish: The problem with having an idyllic life through college is that at some point you have to enter the real world, which isnt nearly as supportive and affirming, and expectations are often unrealistic. If you have never faced true adversity and developed coping skills, it can be overwhelming. You are on the right track. You know you cant live in the past, and you are seeking help for your depression and anxiety. While you search for a more fulfilling job, please realize that overcoming a challenging situation can be tremendously rewarding, and each time you succeed, it will become easier and more satisfying. Hang in there. Dear Annie: How do I get a 65year-old male to shower and get a decent haircut? My husband retired from the Navy after 30 years of service, so he should know how to keep clean. It has been at least a month since he showered, and his hair hasnt been trimmed since February. I can hardly stand this. Showerless in Sheboygan Dear Showerless: Many men become lethargic and depressed when they retire, especially if their identities are strongly tied to their jobs. A sudden lack of hygiene is also indicative of depression. The armed forces offer counseling services to retirees, although your husband may no longer be eligible. Contact militaryonesource.com (1-800-3429647) to find out. Otherwise, please ask your doctor or clergyperson to refer you to someone who can help both of you deal with his sudden change in status. Dear Annie: You printed a letter from Lonely in the Deep Woods,who was not interested in spending Sunday brunches with her grown children or her husbands. She preferred to use the time to be with her husband alone. I completely agree with your advice. She should cherish that time with her husband, grown children and grandchildren. Many years ago, my in-laws began having Sunday dinners with their three grown children and all the grandkids. We called it lunnerbecause it was after lunch but before dinner. It has been so rewarding, and I wouldnt give it up for anything. The adults update each other on what has been going on, and the grandkids get to know their cousins. It only takes a couple of hours. My children have gotten to know their grandparents, aunts and uncles better, as have we. And it has created rich memories that my children will have forever. I hope when my kids marry, we can carry on the tradition. Sundays in Oregon Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

A year or so ago I started writing stories about veterans for the Chronicle Truthfully, it didnt sound interesting to me at first; it was just an assignment. However, the more I listened to the stories from men and women who were not much more than kids when they were thrust into horrific wartime situations, the more I fell in love with them with many of you who are reading this. On Tuesday, Sept. 20, a group of World War II vets will be joining with other veterans from the Tampa area for a one-day Honor Flight trip to Washington, D.C, to visit the World War II Memorial. Ill be on that flight, as will some of you. The trip is free for the veterans as a way to say thank you for their (your) service to our country. Right now, dozens of local groups are raising funds to cover the costs. The Sept. 20 flight is filled, but there will be other flights. If youre interested in learning more about the Honor Flight, which is a national organization, call me at (352) 564-2927. Leave your name and number and Ill return your call. It would be an honor to talk with you. Now,on to this months Senior Style. You may know his name as County Commissioner Dennis Damato, but you might not know about his fight with cancer or his amazing, positive attitude about it. Recently, I had the pleasure of sitting down and talking with him and his wife, Pat, about the cancer that took off his scalp and the fact that hes still smiling. Also this month, be sure to check out the activities that are available across the county, from aerobics to Zumba.If youre ever in Inverness, stop by the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum.

The most common household plumbing problem is leakage. Since leaks come from virtually anything pipes, drains, fixtures or water tanks its a good idea to call on a plumbers expert eye. Plumbers can find exactly where the leak is coming from and what needs to be done to clear it up. You can evenask for advice on how to keep it from leaking in the future. I know I would call a plumber quickly if I couldnt control or fix a leak myself. Imagine, however, that there are certain leaks women will wait 6.5 years to report; or that twothirds of men and women will never even talk about. Im referring to those personal leakswe professionally call urinary incontinence. Ironically, in the same way we can call a plumber to help with household leaks, we can make an appointment with a doctor to discuss personal leaks. This gives your doctor a chance to find the leak, diagnose the problem, clear it up and prevent it in the future. Urinary incontinence, or the involuntary loss of bladder control, affects 200 million people worldwide. Its prevalence does not suggest its a normal part of aging. On the contrary, incontinence is actually a symptom of another problem. The condition is often stigmatized and underreported. Twothirds of men and women age 30 to 70 have never talked to their doctor about their symptoms; statistically thats 133 million people dealing with this problem alone. About 80 percent of those affected by incontinence can be cured or improved. Treatment of incontinence can be as simple as making a few lifestyle changes or taking medication. Certain causes of leakage require surgery. Treatment is based on the type of incontinence. Stress urinary incontinence occurs because of weak muscles that control the flow of urine. This causes the bladder to leak during exercise, coughing, sneezing, laughing or any body movement which puts pressure on the bladder. Urgency urinary incontinence and overactive bladder is the urgent need to pass urine and the inability to get to a toilet in time.This occurs when nerve passages along the pathway from the bladder to the brain are damaged, causing a sudden bladder contraction that cannot be consciously stopped. Chronic retention of urineoccurs when the quantity of urine produced exceeds the bladders holding capacity. It can result from diabetes, pelvic trauma, extensive pelvic surgery, pelvic organ prolapse in women, enlarged prostate in men or injuries to the spinal cord. A proper diagnosis begins with your physician, nurse practitioner or physicians assistant.

Also, it takes me a little longer sometimes because my fingers take me to the Home Shopping Network and I peruse the sparkly item section before I can settle down to writing about the funny things. Lately, Ive been bothered by just a couple of little bitty pet peeves.One such peeve is when someone gives you a telephone number in letters: you know, like 1800-CARPETS.Thisform -at is a bother in todays fast -paced world. If you are going to give me a number, give me a number, not a bunch of letters mixed inwith numbers. Yes, I do know my ABCs, but that doesnt mean I want to find them on the phone pad.Usually, when I have to dial one of these numbers, by the time I reach thesecond letter Im getting the if you wish to make a call, blah, blah, blah,recording. Next, its those plastic containers from the bakery or deli.The ones all really delicious things come in.What could possibly be wrong with them? Well, for one thing, it takes forever to open them.They are crimped together and you have to figure out which way to start pulling them apart. Once you figure that out, you need a crowbar to get the lid open. And there is just no way you can sneakout that last piece of cake or the lastcream cheese brownie without being caught. Even if you try, the noise is loud enough to wake the dead. Even if the noise doesnt wake everyone in the house, the next morning everyone notices that the container isnt closed,because there is just no way you can get that plastic fortress closed again. At my house, if there was someone who might want to go back for that lastbrownie(just speculating here), they(not me, but whomever) would takeall the brownies out and put them in that wonderful plastic bowl with the great seal on it and take as many brownies as they want and no one could hear me (I mean,them). Im just saying. Enough about the pet peeves the other day I was reading some of my classic (Lewis) Grizzard Literature. Years ago,he wrote about his newspaper career and how much he liked newspapers.I have to say that, even though I appreciate and enjoy technology, I really like newspapers,as well. There are a number of reasons: 1 Dilbert. 2 Funny headlines, as in Police Find Crack in Mans Pants (I collect those). 3 Newspapers are still the best bargain around. 4 You dont have to watch the Weather Channel for 30 minutes before you can get the forecast. You can read it in about five seconds in about two inches of space. Theres even a weather map if you want to look at it. 5 Crossword puzzle 6 If you have a memory lapse, and this is important for some of us, you can find out what day it is (even the date and year). 7 You can read about yourchildren/grandchildren and everyone else can read aboutthem, too. Assuming thats a good thing. 8 You can get all the latest gossip on the royals, the movie stars, the politicians. 9 You can use them for pet piddles,catching watermelon drippings and for saving your table from craftpaint. 10 Read about religion and some religions I bet you never even heard of. 11 SeniorStyle 12 Its the only place you really can read between the lines. 13 Reading one every day gives you a lot to talk about, assuming you know someone who will listen. 14 Its a great place to start your job hunt (yes, computers are good, but some of us have to have a job before we can buy a computer). And finally, 15 they are lightweight, so you could read a newspaper and eat that last cream cheese brownie at the same time!

In praise of papers Mary Alice Tillman LETS TALK Boomers get help navigating Medicare The oldest of the Baby Boomers are turning 65 this year, the eye-opening age of Medicare eligibility. As the reality of dealing with Medicare looms large, many people find themselves uncertain about their Medicare options and the processes for enrollment. The Florida Department of Elder AffairsSHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) program, in partnership with the Area Agencies on Aging, is prepared to provide the assistance you need to understand See SHINE Page 4 water doesnt stand, it lays. The extremely hot weather is dangerous, especially for seniors. Fortunately for us, we have a lot of indoor activities such as bingo, mah jongg, bridge, line dancing, square dancing, aerobics and the library. Classes in art and flower arranging are offered. Unfortunately, only a few attract the men in our park. A suggestion for a computer class was presented at the Friday Morning Coffee and was met with great enthusiasm until someone mentioned that their computers were too heavy to bring to the clubhouse. Laptops were the simple solution, except when the battery runs down because someone forgot to turn it off after using it. Also, the screens are too small. So, it was agreed that the computer class would be held at Frank Fishbinders house. It was pointed out that Frank doesnt have a computer, but he does have the largest flatscreen TV in the park. Franks wife, Pheobe,is away visiting her sister. The park residents now have two things to look forward to. The first is that the men have a place to go and secondly, the trouble Frank will be in when Phoebe finds out. Whomever drew the chalk outlines of bodies in front of Helen Crabinskis house,please stop. Although Helens temper is legendary, she says shes not responsible for damages done when her golf cart tore through the shuffleboard court because her foot was on the wrong pedal. When interviewed by the police, Helen said she was aiming for rain puddles so she could splash water to help cool off some seniors walking around the park. More on this later, Maybe. The signup sheet for our annual Labor Day Celebration potluck will soon be posted. For those of you who received the free carpet shampooer rental for best float in the Memorial Day Parade, please return it so it can be given to the next winner. Management says the use of batons is forbidden due to the majorettes twirling while using walkers. Insurance will not cover any more injuries.

The annual Spring Sports Banquet was postponed due to injuries sustained by our seniors while playing sports. Theawards banquet was done on Saturday because the month of August has no holidays. Since we couldnt find any sponsors who werent currently in litigation with us, the funds came from proceeds from the golf cart wash. It took a great deal of imagination for the awards committee to come up with categories in which to present the trophies to prospective candidates. The first one to receive a trophy was Nan Pentwater for successfully having the most bingo cards (21) at one time. The second award went to Sven Gustafson for his unique performance while playing softball. The officials are still scratching their heads trying to figure out the proper ruling for when Sven stole second base. Sven has cataracts and stole second from third base. Ernie Slatmeyer won an award for hitting his golf ball farther than anyone else. He owes his success to the skillful use of his favorite golf club a No. 9 croquet mallet. The softball season had many records shattered. None can come close to the grand slam bunt scored by the Geriatrics Giants when Jeff Morganstein accidentally hit pitcher Bonsai Bob Beffibstons slow ball while sneezing during last years Fourth of July game. Although the ball only traveled a few feet in front of home plate, the head-on collision between Bonsai Bob and catcher Leo Forks allowed four runs when no one could find the ball. (The ball was later found by EMS lodged in Leos chest protector on his way to the hospital.) Although Leo is no longer with us (his wife Janice traded him for some Weight Watchers coupons),we still remember how the game was canceled because of laughing. There seems to be a huge technological gap that is difficult at best for seniors to overcome. Nan Pentwater received a cell phone from one of her granddaughters and needs help trying to get it to work. I know they dont come with a dial anymore, but those buttons are so small,she said. I dont see what all the fuss is about. The calls drop whenever I answer because my earring keeps hitting the disconnect thingy. And whats the point of having a phone with pictures when you hold it up to your ear? The Jury (resident porch dwellers) wanted to know how to select numbers off the menu with the phone attached to your ear.Well, our geniuses have come up with a solution. It simply requires two cell phones and two people. The first person answers one phone using his right hand to hold it up to his ear,while the second person holds the second phone in front of the first person so that the first person can now use his left hand to hit the menu buttons. Whats scary is that the logic behind it sort of makes sense. Sort of. Management put a notice on the bulletin board concerning standing water accumulating from all the rain weve been getting,and how mosquitoes lay their eggs in it. The whole point of the warning was lost when certain seniors argued that C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE Thursday, August 25, 2011 G9 S ENIOR S TYLE 00091PT LEND US YOUR EARS Join the 2011 Starkey Hearing Aid Study Starkey is partnering with Gardner Audiology to field study consumer satisfaction with a new line of affordable and out of sight hearing aids.

SHINE is an unbiased information and counseling resource that trains volunteers to provide free, confidential health care advice to Floridas seniors and the disabled, particularly about Medicare. Here in Florida, where one out of every 8 residents is age 65 or older, SHINE is a vital resource. Each year SHINE serves seniors, retirees, the disabled, and other Medicare beneficiaries by providing educational presentations, informational materials, and an opportunity to speak one-on-one with a trained Medicare counselor. This year, SHINE has a special opportunity to help the wave of boomers who are reaching the age for Medicare eligibility. Individuals new to Medicare may enroll during the Initial Enrollment Period, which is the seven-month period (birth month plus the three months before and after) surrounding his or her 65 th birthday. During this period, beneficiaries can enroll in Medicare Parts A, B and D, or they may alternatively choose to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan with or without drug coverage. All current and soon-tobe Medicare beneficiaries are invited to make an appointment for one-on-one SHINE counseling or enrollment assistance at the SHINE sites closest them. There is SHINE counseling taking place in all counties of the state of Florida. To locate a site or to make an appointment, contact the Elder Helpline at 1-800-96-ELDER (1-800963-5337). Medicare beneficiaries who do not take advantage of their Initial Enrollment Period may do so during the now earlier Annual Election Period (Oct. 15 Dec.7), with coverage effective on Jan. 1.

However, according to the National Institute on Aging, the goal is to be creative and choose all four types of exercise endurance strength balance and flexibility Todays example is the overhead arm raise Targeted muscles Shoulders and arms What you need Weighted objects or hand-held weights This exercise will strengthen your shoulders and arms. It should make swimming and other activities such as lifting and carrying grandchildren easier. 1. You can do this exercise while standing or sitting in a sturdy, armless chair. 2. Keep your feet flat on the floor, shoulderwidth apart. 3. Hold weights at your sides at shoulder height with palms facing forward. Breathe in slowly. 4. Slowly breathe out as you raise both arms up over your head keeping your elbows slightly bent. 5. Hold the position for one second. 6. Breathe in as you slowly lower your arms. 7. Repeat 10-15 times. 8. Rest; then repeat 1015 more times.TIP As you progress, use a heavier weight and alternate arms until you can lift the weight comfortably with both arms All the news Larry Elsenheimer WHATCHER POINT see Whatcher Page 10 0008V2M Did you know that benefits are available to Veterans, Spouses and their Widows for Assisted Living?

C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE Thursday, August 25, 2011 G5 S ENIOR S TYLE G8 Thursday, August 25, 2011C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S ENIOR S TYLE Dear Savvy Senior: Can you write a column on fall prevention tips for elderly seniors? My 81-year-old father, who lives alone, has fallen several times over the past year. What can you tell us? Concerned Daughter Dear Concerned: Falls are a big concern for millions of elderly Americans and their families. In the United States, roughly one-third of the 65-and-older population will suffer a fall this year, often with dire consequences. But many falls can be prevented. Here are some steps you can take to help keep your dad up on his feet and reduce his risk of falling. Check his meds: Does your dad take any medicine or combination of medicines that make him dizzy, sleepy or lightheaded? If so, gather up all the drugs he takes prescriptions and over-the-counter and take them to his doctor or pharmacist for a drug review. Schedule an eye exam: Poor vision can be another contributor to falls. If your dad wears glasses, check to see if hes wearing the correct prescription and beware of bifocals. Multifocal glasses can impair vision needed for detecting obstacles and judging depth. Check his balance: Balance disorders which can be brought on by a variety of conditions like inner ear problems, allergies, a head injury or problems with blood circulation are also a common cause of falls. If you dad is having some balance issues, make an appointment with his doctor to get it checked and treated. Start exercising: Improving balance through exercise is one of the best ways to prevent falls. Strength training, stretching, yoga and tai chi are all great for building better balance. Some simple exercises that he can do anytime are walking heel-to-toe across the room, standing on one foot for 30 seconds or longer, or getting up from a chair and sitting back down 10 to 20 times. For more balance exercise tips, call the National Institute on Aging at (800) 222-2225 and order their free exercise DVD and free exercise book,or you can see it online at go4life.nia publications.org. Modify his home: Because about half of all falls happen around the home, some simple modifications can go a long way in making your dads living area safer. Start by picking up items on the floor that could cause him to trip, such as newspapers, books, shoes, clothes, electrical or phone cords. If he has throw rugs, remove them or use double-sided tape to secure them. In the bathroom,put a non-slip rubber mat or self-stick strips on the floor of the tub or shower, and have a carpenter install grab bars inside the tub and next to the toilet. Make sure the lighting throughout the house is good: Purchase some inexpensive plug-in nightlights for the bathrooms and hallways, and if he has stairs, consider putting hand rails on both sides. And in the kitchen, organize his cabinets so the things he uses most often are within easy reach without using a step stool. For more tips, call the Eldercare Locater at (800) 6771116 and order a free copy of their Preventing Falls at Homebrochure. Other pitfalls: Believe it or not, the improper use of canes and walkers sends around 47,000 seniors to the emergency room each year. If your dad uses a cane or walker, be sure its adequately adjusted to his height and that hes using it properly. A physical therapist can help with this, or see the Mayo Clinic slideshow on how to choose and use a cane (mayo clinic.com/health/canes/HA0 0064) and a walker (mayoclinic.com/health/walker/ HA00060). Another possible hazard is pets. If your dad has a dog or cat, he needs to be aware that because they can get underfoot pets cause a lot of falls. Shoes are another issue to be aware of. Rubber-soled, lowheeled shoes are the best slip/trip-proof shoes for seniors. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org.

He actually has leg hair on top of his head. Damato laughs at this. The leg hair comes with the skin graft he received March 9 as part of the skin cancer ordeal hes been going through since 2004. The majority and severity of his squamous cell carcinoma has been on his scalp. That was the granddaddy of all my surgeries,Damato says. They removed my entire scalp and removed all the previous grafts and skin cancer. I went into a burn ward at Shands (Hospital in Gainesville) until March 17. The doctors rebuilt the top of his head with a huge piece of his right leg and then took a piece of his left leg as a graft for his right. So, I had three wounds to recover from,he says. Meanwhile, his only daughter was getting married, and on April 9, just a month after his surgery, Damato walked his daughter, Danielle, down the aisle using a walker. But I was there, and I was alive, he says. I did my rehab at Seven Rivers (Regional Medical Center) until April 5, then I did my own therapy at home. I made my first public appearance on May 10, my first return to the Citrus County commission. Prior to that,during his recovery, he watched tapes of commission meetings, always noting his empty County commissioner embraces life after traumatic events A good ride chair. It was surreal,he says. It made me fight harder to get back. On May 10 he thought he could sneak in the commission chambers without fanfare and just pick up where he had left off as commission chairman. He didnt expect all the other commissioners to not be there. So, there he sat, with his skull cap on, ready to put the gavel down to start the meeting, waiting and wondering. Im saying to myself, Where is everybody? And then the door opens and they all come marching out with skull caps on. It was nice,he says. It showed solidarity and that they missed me, and that was pretty cool. Damato relays this information with a smile and a laugh. This is one happy man, grateful to be alive and able to work. In addition to being a commissioner since 2004, hes also a longtime building contractor. Go ahead ask him how business is. Terrible!he says, still smiling. Pat, Damatos wife of 36 years, owns The Golden Clipper hair salon. Her husbands business office is next door. Damato owns several buildings on Third Street Northeast in Crystal River. That keeps him busy these days, in addition to his county commission duties. A Citrus County native, Pat (Zoellner) Damato grew up in Chassahowitzka. Her grandmother, Maggie Smith, was the first woman county commissioner. She met her husband at the in placein town during the 1970s the old Holiday Inn on U.S. 19 in Crystal River, where young people went to dance. Damato had come to Crystal River from New Jersey at 18 to work in construction. He rented a house by himself and went to work helping a man build two houses and then the man helped Damato build his first. There was nothing here in 1971, Damato said. The end of town was the Green Tavern (now RaceTrac) and there was no place to buy soft-serve ice cream or pizza. We used to go to Inglis to the Rock House store for sliced cold cuts. He and Pat had one daughter, Danielle, who works for Kids Central in Ocala. On top of Damatos cancer ordeal, in 2009 Mrs. Damato was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, a genetic form of leukemia. She, too, had surgery and will take a maintenance form of chemotherapy for the rest of her life. In the middle of all that, they planned a wedding. It was really, really hard, but our attitudes were, OK, we have this situation we have to deal with and we did it, Mrs. Damato said from her salon, in between perms and hair cuts. Its all about attitude. You have to have a really good attitude and you have to face it,she said. At one point as she dealt with her own illness, she traveled from Crystal River to Gainesville to be with her husbandand then to Ocala to see her daughter all while working and caring for her elderly in-laws. You dont concentrate on yourself, she said. We did a lot of praying and had a lot of friends and family that pray and churches the prayer chain was endless. I depended on that. Dennis Damato smiles. A lot. In 2005, after one scalp surgery, he contracted MRSA, a staph infection, and went through months of treatment. Hes had radiation treatment and has lost the top of his head. Along with almost every other building contractor in the area, his business has taken a severe hit in the past few years. His wife has a chronic illness. Yet, if you ask him, hell tell you hes one of the luckiest people on earth. Ive got a lot to live for,he says. I have a great family, I live in Crystal River, I have the best of friends. Ive seen a whole county grow from nothing and Ive gotten to participate in it, both in business and in government. Its been a good ride,he says, and I hope to keep the ride going.

C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE Thursday, August 25, 2011 G5 S ENIOR S TYLE G8 Thursday, August 25, 2011C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S ENIOR S TYLE Dear Savvy Senior: Can you write a column on fall prevention tips for elderly seniors? My 81-year-old father, who lives alone, has fallen several times over the past year. What can you tell us? Concerned Daughter Dear Concerned: Falls are a big concern for millions of elderly Americans and their families. In the United States, roughly one-third of the 65-and-older population will suffer a fall this year, often with dire consequences. But many falls can be prevented. Here are some steps you can take to help keep your dad up on his feet and reduce his risk of falling. Check his meds: Does your dad take any medicine or combination of medicines that make him dizzy, sleepy or lightheaded? If so, gather up all the drugs he takes prescriptions and over-the-counter and take them to his doctor or pharmacist for a drug review. Schedule an eye exam: Poor vision can be another contributor to falls. If your dad wears glasses, check to see if hes wearing the correct prescription and beware of bifocals. Multifocal glasses can impair vision needed for detecting obstacles and judging depth. Check his balance: Balance disorders which can be brought on by a variety of conditions like inner ear problems, allergies, a head injury or problems with blood circulation are also a common cause of falls. If you dad is having some balance issues, make an appointment with his doctor to get it checked and treated. Start exercising: Improving balance through exercise is one of the best ways to prevent falls. Strength training, stretching, yoga and tai chi are all great for building better balance. Some simple exercises that he can do anytime are walking heel-to-toe across the room, standing on one foot for 30 seconds or longer, or getting up from a chair and sitting back down 10 to 20 times. For more balance exercise tips, call the National Institute on Aging at (800) 222-2225 and order their free exercise DVD and free exercise book,or you can see it online at go4life.nia publications.org. Modify his home: Because about half of all falls happen around the home, some simple modifications can go a long way in making your dads living area safer. Start by picking up items on the floor that could cause him to trip, such as newspapers, books, shoes, clothes, electrical or phone cords. If he has throw rugs, remove them or use double-sided tape to secure them. In the bathroom,put a non-slip rubber mat or self-stick strips on the floor of the tub or shower, and have a carpenter install grab bars inside the tub and next to the toilet. Make sure the lighting throughout the house is good: Purchase some inexpensive plug-in nightlights for the bathrooms and hallways, and if he has stairs, consider putting hand rails on both sides. And in the kitchen, organize his cabinets so the things he uses most often are within easy reach without using a step stool. For more tips, call the Eldercare Locater at (800) 6771116 and order a free copy of their Preventing Falls at Homebrochure. Other pitfalls: Believe it or not, the improper use of canes and walkers sends around 47,000 seniors to the emergency room each year. If your dad uses a cane or walker, be sure its adequately adjusted to his height and that hes using it properly. A physical therapist can help with this, or see the Mayo Clinic slideshow on how to choose and use a cane (mayo clinic.com/health/canes/HA0 0064) and a walker (mayoclinic.com/health/walker/ HA00060). Another possible hazard is pets. If your dad has a dog or cat, he needs to be aware that because they can get underfoot pets cause a lot of falls. Shoes are another issue to be aware of. Rubber-soled, lowheeled shoes are the best slip/trip-proof shoes for seniors. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org.

The annual Spring Sports Banquet was postponed due to injuries sustained by our seniors while playing sports. Theawards banquet was done on Saturday because the month of August has no holidays. Since we couldnt find any sponsors who werent currently in litigation with us, the funds came from proceeds from the golf cart wash. It took a great deal of imagination for the awards committee to come up with categories in which to present the trophies to prospective candidates. The first one to receive a trophy was Nan Pentwater for successfully having the most bingo cards (21) at one time. The second award went to Sven Gustafson for his unique performance while playing softball. The officials are still scratching their heads trying to figure out the proper ruling for when Sven stole second base. Sven has cataracts and stole second from third base. Ernie Slatmeyer won an award for hitting his golf ball farther than anyone else. He owes his success to the skillful use of his favorite golf club a No. 9 croquet mallet. The softball season had many records shattered. None can come close to the grand slam bunt scored by the Geriatrics Giants when Jeff Morganstein accidentally hit pitcher Bonsai Bob Beffibstons slow ball while sneezing during last years Fourth of July game. Although the ball only traveled a few feet in front of home plate, the head-on collision between Bonsai Bob and catcher Leo Forks allowed four runs when no one could find the ball. (The ball was later found by EMS lodged in Leos chest protector on his way to the hospital.) Although Leo is no longer with us (his wife Janice traded him for some Weight Watchers coupons),we still remember how the game was canceled because of laughing. There seems to be a huge technological gap that is difficult at best for seniors to overcome. Nan Pentwater received a cell phone from one of her granddaughters and needs help trying to get it to work. I know they dont come with a dial anymore, but those buttons are so small,she said. I dont see what all the fuss is about. The calls drop whenever I answer because my earring keeps hitting the disconnect thingy. And whats the point of having a phone with pictures when you hold it up to your ear? The Jury (resident porch dwellers) wanted to know how to select numbers off the menu with the phone attached to your ear.Well, our geniuses have come up with a solution. It simply requires two cell phones and two people. The first person answers one phone using his right hand to hold it up to his ear,while the second person holds the second phone in front of the first person so that the first person can now use his left hand to hit the menu buttons. Whats scary is that the logic behind it sort of makes sense. Sort of. Management put a notice on the bulletin board concerning standing water accumulating from all the rain weve been getting,and how mosquitoes lay their eggs in it.

SHINE is an unbiased information and counseling resource that trains volunteers to provide free, confidential health care advice to Floridas seniors and the disabled, particularly about Medicare. Here in Florida, where one out of every 8 residents is age 65 or older, SHINE is a vital resource. Each year SHINE serves seniors, retirees, the disabled, and other Medicare beneficiaries by providing educational presentations, informational materials, and an opportunity to speak one-on-one with a trained Medicare counselor. This year, SHINE has a special opportunity to help the wave of boomers who are reaching the age for Medicare eligibility. Individuals new to Medicare may enroll during the Initial Enrollment Period, which is the seven-month period (birth month plus the three months before and after) surrounding his or her 65 th birthday. During this period, beneficiaries can enroll in Medicare Parts A, B and D, or they may alternatively choose to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan with or without drug coverage. All current and soon-tobe Medicare beneficiaries are invited to make an appointment for one-on-one SHINE counseling or enrollment assistance at the SHINE sites closest them. There is SHINE counseling taking place in all counties of the state of Florida. To locate a site or to make an appointment, contact the Elder Helpline at 1-800-96-ELDER (1-800963-5337). Medicare beneficiaries who do not take advantage of their Initial Enrollment Period may do so during the now earlier Annual Election Period (Oct. 15 Dec.7), with coverage effective on Jan. 1. SHINE from Page 3 Senior fitness For more information about this and many other exercises go to go4life.niapublications.org/ try-these-exercises Most people tend to focus on one activity or type of exercise and think theyre doing enough. However, according to the National Institute on Aging, the goal is to be creative and choose all four types of exercise endurance strength balance and flexibility Todays example is the overhead arm raise Targeted muscles Shoulders and arms What you need Weighted objects or hand-held weights This exercise will strengthen your shoulders and arms. It should make swimming and other activities such as lifting and carrying grandchildren easier. 1. You can do this exercise while standing or sitting in a sturdy, armless chair. 2. Keep your feet flat on the floor, shoulderwidth apart. 3. Hold weights at your sides at shoulder height with palms facing forward. Breathe in slowly. 4. Slowly breathe out as you raise both arms up over your head keeping your elbows slightly bent. 5. Hold the position for one second. 6. Breathe in as you slowly lower your arms. 7. Repeat 10-15 times. 8. Rest; then repeat 1015 more times.TIP As you progress, use a heavier weight and alternate arms until you can lift the weight comfortably with both arms All the news Larry Elsenheimer WHATCHER POINT see Whatcher Page 10 0008V2M Did you know that benefits are available to Veterans, Spouses and their Widows for Assisted Living?

The most common household plumbing problem is leakage. Since leaks come from virtually anything pipes, drains, fixtures or water tanks its a good idea to call on a plumbers expert eye. Plumbers can find exactly where the leak is coming from and what needs to be done to clear it up. You can evenask for advice on how to keep it from leaking in the future. I know I would call a plumber quickly if I couldnt control or fix a leak myself. Imagine, however, that there are certain leaks women will wait 6.5 years to report; or that twothirds of men and women will never even talk about. Im referring to those personal leakswe professionally call urinary incontinence. Ironically, in the same way we can call a plumber to help with household leaks, we can make an appointment with a doctor to discuss personal leaks. This gives your doctor a chance to find the leak, diagnose the problem, clear it up and prevent it in the future. Urinary incontinence, or the involuntary loss of bladder control, affects 200 million people worldwide. Its prevalence does not suggest its a normal part of aging. On the contrary, incontinence is actually a symptom of another problem. The condition is often stigmatized and underreported. Twothirds of men and women age 30 to 70 have never talked to their doctor about their symptoms; statistically thats 133 million people dealing with this problem alone. About 80 percent of those affected by incontinence can be cured or improved. Treatment of incontinence can be as simple as making a few lifestyle changes or taking medication. Certain causes of leakage require surgery. Treatment is based on the type of incontinence. Stress urinary incontinence occurs because of weak muscles that control the flow of urine. This causes the bladder to leak during exercise, coughing, sneezing, laughing or any body movement which puts pressure on the bladder. Urgency urinary incontinence and overactive bladder is the urgent need to pass urine and the inability to get to a toilet in time.This occurs when nerve passages along the pathway from the bladder to the brain are damaged, causing a sudden bladder contraction that cannot be consciously stopped. Chronic retention of urineoccurs when the quantity of urine produced exceeds the bladders holding capacity. It can result from diabetes, pelvic trauma, extensive pelvic surgery, pelvic organ prolapse in women, enlarged prostate in men or injuries to the spinal cord. A proper diagnosis begins with your physician, nurse practitioner or physicians assistant.

Also, it takes me a little longer sometimes because my fingers take me to the Home Shopping Network and I peruse the sparkly item section before I can settle down to writing about the funny things. Lately, Ive been bothered by just a couple of little bitty pet peeves.One such peeve is when someone gives you a telephone number in letters: you know, like 1800-CARPETS.Thisform -at is a bother in todays fast -paced world. If you are going to give me a number, give me a number, not a bunch of letters mixed inwith numbers. Yes, I do know my ABCs, but that doesnt mean I want to find them on the phone pad.Usually, when I have to dial one of these numbers, by the time I reach thesecond letter Im getting the if you wish to make a call, blah, blah, blah,recording. Next, its those plastic containers from the bakery or deli.The ones all really delicious things come in.What could possibly be wrong with them? Well, for one thing, it takes forever to open them.They are crimped together and you have to figure out which way to start pulling them apart. Once you figure that out, you need a crowbar to get the lid open. And there is just no way you can sneakout that last piece of cake or the lastcream cheese brownie without being caught. Even if you try, the noise is loud enough to wake the dead. Even if the noise doesnt wake everyone in the house, the next morning everyone notices that the container isnt closed,because there is just no way you can get that plastic fortress closed again. At my house, if there was someone who might want to go back for that lastbrownie(just speculating here), they(not me, but whomever) would takeall the brownies out and put them in that wonderful plastic bowl with the great seal on it and take as many brownies as they want and no one could hear me (I mean,them). Im just saying. Enough about the pet peeves the other day I was reading some of my classic (Lewis) Grizzard Literature. Years ago,he wrote about his newspaper career and how much he liked newspapers.I have to say that, even though I appreciate and enjoy technology, I really like newspapers,as well. There are a number of reasons: 1 Dilbert. 2 Funny headlines, as in Police Find Crack in Mans Pants (I collect those). 3 Newspapers are still the best bargain around. 4 You dont have to watch the Weather Channel for 30 minutes before you can get the forecast. You can read it in about five seconds in about two inches of space. Theres even a weather map if you want to look at it. 5 Crossword puzzle 6 If you have a memory lapse, and this is important for some of us, you can find out what day it is (even the date and year). 7 You can read about yourchildren/grandchildren and everyone else can read aboutthem, too. Assuming thats a good thing. 8 You can get all the latest gossip on the royals, the movie stars, the politicians. 9 You can use them for pet piddles,catching watermelon drippings and for saving your table from craftpaint. 10 Read about religion and some religions I bet you never even heard of. 11 SeniorStyle 12 Its the only place you really can read between the lines. 13 Reading one every day gives you a lot to talk about, assuming you know someone who will listen. 14 Its a great place to start your job hunt (yes, computers are good, but some of us have to have a job before we can buy a computer). And finally, 15 they are lightweight, so you could read a newspaper and eat that last cream cheese brownie at the same time! Until next time, just keep laughing, because Laughter is the best medicine!

In praise of papers Mary Alice Tillman LETS TALK Boomers get help navigating Medicare The oldest of the Baby Boomers are turning 65 this year, the eye-opening age of Medicare eligibility. As the reality of dealing with Medicare looms large, many people find themselves uncertain about their Medicare options and the processes for enrollment. The Florida Department of Elder AffairsSHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) program, in partnership with the Area Agencies on Aging, is prepared to provide the assistance you need to understand See SHINE Page 4 water doesnt stand, it lays. The extremely hot weather is dangerous, especially for seniors. Fortunately for us, we have a lot of indoor activities such as bingo, mah jongg, bridge, line dancing, square dancing, aerobics and the library. Classes in art and flower arranging are offered. Unfortunately, only a few attract the men in our park. A suggestion for a computer class was presented at the Friday Morning Coffee and was met with great enthusiasm until someone mentioned that their computers were too heavy to bring to the clubhouse. Laptops were the simple solution, except when the battery runs down because someone forgot to turn it off after using it. Also, the screens are too small. So, it was agreed that the computer class would be held at Frank Fishbinders house. It was pointed out that Frank doesnt have a computer, but he does have the largest flatscreen TV in the park. Franks wife, Pheobe,is away visiting her sister. The park residents now have two things to look forward to. The first is that the men have a place to go and secondly, the trouble Frank will be in when Phoebe finds out. Whomever drew the chalk outlines of bodies in front of Helen Crabinskis house,please stop. Although Helens temper is legendary, she says shes not responsible for damages done when her golf cart tore through the shuffleboard court because her foot was on the wrong pedal. When interviewed by the police, Helen said she was aiming for rain puddles so she could splash water to help cool off some seniors walking around the park. More on this later, Maybe. The signup sheet for our annual Labor Day Celebration potluck will soon be posted. For those of you who received the free carpet shampooer rental for best float in the Memorial Day Parade, please return it so it can be given to the next winner. Management says the use of batons is forbidden due to the majorettes twirling while using walkers. Insurance will not cover any more injuries. Until next month, dont forget your meds and stay healthy. Larry Elsenheimer and his wife of 41 years, Kathleen, live in Homosassa. Before moving here, they lived five years in a retirement community, where he served as vice president for a year and president for two years of a homeowners association. He also called bingo and was privileged to host Friday morning coffees. It is from his experiences and folks he met that he draws the ideas for the Whatcher Point Community Newsletter.

Meadowcrest Blvd. Crystal River, FL 34429 (352) 563-6363 I want to take this opportunity to address those of you who are World War II veterans. A year or so ago I started writing stories about veterans for the Chronicle Truthfully, it didnt sound interesting to me at first; it was just an assignment. However, the more I listened to the stories from men and women who were not much more than kids when they were thrust into horrific wartime situations, the more I fell in love with them with many of you who are reading this. On Tuesday, Sept. 20, a group of World War II vets will be joining with other veterans from the Tampa area for a one-day Honor Flight trip to Washington, D.C, to visit the World War II Memorial. Ill be on that flight, as will some of you. The trip is free for the veterans as a way to say thank you for their (your) service to our country. Right now, dozens of local groups are raising funds to cover the costs. The Sept. 20 flight is filled, but there will be other flights. If youre interested in learning more about the Honor Flight, which is a national organization, call me at (352) 564-2927. Leave your name and number and Ill return your call. It would be an honor to talk with you. Now,on to this months Senior Style. You may know his name as County Commissioner Dennis Damato, but you might not know about his fight with cancer or his amazing, positive attitude about it.

Also this month, be sure to check out the activities that are available across the county, from aerobics to Zumba.If youre ever in Inverness, stop by the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum.
