Associated PressNEW YORK Stripped of hurricane rank, Tropical Storm Irene spent the last of its fury Sunday, leaving treacherous flooding and millions without power but an unfazed New York and relief that it was nothing like the nightmare authorities feared. Slowly, the East Coast surveyed the damage, up to $7 billion by one private estimate. For many, the danger had not passed: Rivers and creeks turned into raging torrents tumbling with limbs and parts of buildings in northern New England and upstate New York. This is not over, President Barack Obama said from the Rose Garden. Flooding was widespread in Vermont, where parts of Brattleboro, Bennington and several other communities, were submerged. One woman was swept away and feared drowned in the Deerfield River. Meanwhile, the nations most populous region looked to a new week and the arduous process of getting back to normal. New York lifted its evacuation order for 370,000 people and said subway service, shut down for the first time by a natural disaster, will be partially restored Monday, though it warned riders to expect long lines and long waits. Philadelphia restarted its trains and buses. All in all, New York Mayor Michael Bloom berg said, we are in pretty good shape. At least 21 people died in the storm, most of them when trees crashed through roofs or onto cars. The main New York power company, Consolidated Edison, didnt have to go through with a plan to cut electricity to lower Manhattan to protect its equipment. Engineers had worried salty seawater would damage the wiring. And two pillars of the neighborhood came through the storm just fine: The New York Stock Exchange said it would Meeting Sept. 1 J IM H UNTER For the ChronicleProperty owners in the Lakes Region of Citrus County who pay flood insurance will be interested in an upcoming meeting on changes to national flood insurance rate maps. The maps currently being used are old and are being updated. In many cases, the maps are only as accurate as the technology was to create them 30 years ago, and changes have been made to properties since they were created. That means the new maps will be more accurate, but it also means the designation of a property could change. Those changes could affect how much the owners pay, which is why they should be interested in the meeting. The Southwest Florida Water Management District is the lead local agency in taking input to improve the maps and the identification of flood risks in an area of eastern Citrus called the Tsala Apopka watershed (see map, Page A9). As part of that cooperative effort, it will hold a public meeting Thursday, Sept. 1, for property owners and anyone interested in the maps. The meeting will be from 4 to 6:30 p.m. at the Citrus County Auditorium on U.S. 41 south, next to the Inverness Airport and county fairgrounds. Property owners will be able to look at specific maps depicting their property and will be able to seek how their land is categorized and if there is any change. They will be able to talk to water district officials about their propertys status. County staff will be on hand A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterHOMOSASSA As what is dubbed the Great Recession grinds on nationally, all manner of economic plans are afoot in the Homosassa, Chassahowitzka and Sugarmill Woods area. All indications point to an excellent and robust future for the southwestern portion of Citrus County, according to Josh Wooten, president and chief executive officer of the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce. Business inquiries are up; the business spaces in the commercial core on U.S. 19 are almost at full rental capacity; the chamber is opening a business incubator to help fledgling businesses get their footing; tourism continues to be a draw; and the average price of a home in the county went up slightly in July.

be open for business on Monday, and the Sept. 11 memorial at the World Trade Center site didnt lose a single tree. The center of Irene passed over Central Park at midmorning with the storm packing 65 mph winds. By evening, with its giant figure-six shape brushing over New England and drifting east, it was down to 50 mph. It was expected to drop below tropical storm strength 39 mph before midnight, and was to drift into Canada later Sunday or early Monday. Just another storm, said Scott Beller, who was at a Lowes hardware store in the Long Island hamlet of Centereach, looking for a generator because his power was out. The Northeast was spared the urban nightmare some had worried about crippled infrastructure, stranded people and windows blown out of skyscrapers. Early assessments showed it wasnt as bad as we thought it would be, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said. Later in the day, the extent of the damage became clearer. Flood waters were rising across New Jersey, closing side streets and major highways including the New Jersey Turnpike and Interstate 295. In Essex County, authorities used a five-ton truck to ferry people away from their homes as the Passaic River neared its expected crest Sunday night. Twenty homes on Long Island Sound in Connecticut were destroyed by churning surf. The torrential rain chased hundreds of people in upstate New York from their homes and washed out 137 miles of the states main highway. In Massachusetts, the National Guard had to help people evacuate. The ski resort town of Wilmington, Vt., was flooded, but nobody could get to it because both state roads leading there were underwater. This is the worst Ive ever seen in Vermont, said Mike ONeil, the state emergency management director. Rivers roared in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. In the Hudson Valley town of New Paltz, N.Y., so many people were gathering to watch a rising river that authorities banned alcohol sales and ordered people inside. And in Rhode Island, which has a geography thick with bays, inlets and shoreline, authorities were worried about coastal flooding at evening high tide. The entire Northeast has been drenched this summer with what has seemed like relentless rain, saturating the ground and raising the risk of flooding, even after the storm passes altogether. The storm system knocked out power for 4 million people along the Eastern Seaboard. Power companies were picking through uprooted trees and reconnecting lines in the South and had restored electricity to hundreds of thousands of people by Sunday afternoon. Under its first hurricane warning in a quarter-century, New York took extraordinary precautions. There were sandbags on Wall Street, tarps over subway grates and plywood on storefront windows. The subway stopped rolling. Broadway and baseball were canceled. With the worst of the storm over, hurricane experts assessed the preparations and concluded that, far from hyping the danger, authorities had done the right thing by being cautious. Max Mayfield, former director of the National Hurricane Center, called it a textbook case. They knew they had to get people out early, he said. I think absolutely lives were saved. Mayfield credited government officials but also the meteorologists. Days before the storm ever touched American land, forecast models showed it passing more or less across New York City.A2 M ONDAY, A UGUST 29, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE 0008W4Q Says Thanks to our faithful subscribers TO ENTER: Fill out this form, mail or bring to 1624 N.

Florida staff helped Progress Energy restore service to thousands of North Carolina customers who lost power in the wake of Hurricane Irene, the utility reported Sunday. In a companywide effort, additional Progress Energy crews came from Florida and the Carolinas and off-system crews and contractors from North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia and Arkansas. More than 1,200 utility workers and tree crews four times the normal complement were taking aim Sunday on about 176,000 customers still without power. Company employees patrolled by land, water and air to assess damage and restore service. Hurricane Irene made landfall Saturday morning near Morehead City as a category-1 storm. The storm pounded the area with strong winds and heavy rains for several hours before moving north. The highest number of outages at any one time was estimated at about 280,000 around 2 p.m. Saturday. The actual number of customers who experienced outages at one time or another during the storm was significantly higher. Since noon on Friday, as the first bands of Hurricane Irene reached the Carolinas, more than 440,000 customers lost power for varying periods. Because of the size and path of Hurricane Irene, Progress Energy crews were restoring service in parts of the Carolinas even as Irene was creating new damage. The utility estimates it will take several days to complete repairs, especially in the hardest-hit areas, where storm damage was most severe. Efforts to complete full-scale damage assessment were impeded by the lingering storm and high winds through the day and evening Saturday. The storms effects were still being felt in much of eastern North Carolina and the coastal plain well into the night Saturday. With Sundays improved weather, workers were out before dawn. In addition to normal vehicles, the company is using tracked equipment, boats and helicopters to complete damage assessment and access equipment in flooded or remote areas. The storm left significant flooding in many areas, further complicating restoration. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at (352) 564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com.

Miami Bermuda gets tropical storm warning Forecasters say a tropical storm warning has been issued for Bermuda as Jose moves over the Atlantic Ocean. The National Hurricane Center in Miami says Jose was about 75 miles (121 kilometers) southwest of Bermuda on Sunday morning with maximum sustained winds of about 40 mph (64 kph). The storm was moving north at about 15 mph (24 kph). Jose is not expected to change much in strength Sunday and should weaken on Monday. Forecasters say tropical storm conditions are expected on Bermuda later this afternoon. Jose could bring as much as 1 to 3 inches of rain to Bermuda, but projections currently show the center of the storm remaining offshore. Clearwater Algae bloom growing in Tampa BayAn algae bloom is growing in Tampa Bay, turning water into the color of rust. The bloom is the bays first in two years and is dangerous to fish. It is caused by a combination of the heat, rain and fertilizer runoff into the bay. The bloom could kill fish by sucking the oxygen out of the water. A 2008 bloom killed catfish, puffer fish, stingrays, blue crabs and brittle stars. A 1971 bloom left thousands of dead fish floating in the waters off St. Petersburg.

Beginning Sept. 3, the market will be open from 8 a.m. to noon the first and third Saturday of the month in the Inverness Government Center plaza. Overwhelming support and strong attendance even during hot summer months led organizers to expand earlier than expected. Initial plans were to go to the bimonthly approach when the market passed its one-year mark in November. However, that plan changed based on positive feedback from vendors, customers and downtown businesses. That same feedback led to the market staying open year-round after organizers initially thought of taking a summer hiatus in anticipation of smaller crowds. Since its start in November 2010 by a volunteer committee with the desire for a local market, the market has expanded from 13 vendors to more than 30. Attendance at the market has averaged around 600 to 700 customers. It features fresh fruits and vegetables, honey, jams and jellies, breads and pastries, flowers and plants, seafood, coffee, lemonade, wood crafts and more. Vendor spaces are still available. Call (352) 341-2777 for information on submitting an application, or for general market inquiries.

Adopt your shore Special to the ChronicleIn cooperation with the Citrus County Aquatics Service Division and the Ocean Conservancy, the Citrus 20/20 Save Our Waters Week Committee will conduct Citrus Countys annual Adopt-A-Shore/Coastal Clean-Up from sunrise to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 17. Groups of two or more people choosing to adopt a portion of a shoreline, a waterway, or the Gulf of Mexico should contact Bill Garvin, westside zone coordinator, at (352) 628-4685 or firstname.lastname@example.org; Greg Schmukal, eastside zone coordinator, at (352) 860-2762 or bass email@example.com; or Citrus County Aquatics Services Division at (352) 527-7620. A program agreement, safety information and a participant sign-up sheet will be provided to each group. Each group is responsible for knowing the accessibility of the area being adopted; organizing and transporting the group as necessary; and for the general safety of the group. If you do not have a special spot, organizers will try to guide you to an adoptable area. All participating groups must register prior to Wednesday, Sept. 14. A safety meeting will be conducted at 7 p.m. that day in Citrus County Lecanto Government Building, room 166, at 3600 W. Sovereign Path (off County Road 491) in Lecanto. The meeting will last approximately one hour. At least one representative from each adopting group must attend in order to be issued T-shirts for each volunteer and supplies for the cleanup to include bottled water, gloves, caps, trash bags and data cards. There will be eastside and westside appreciation cookouts following the cleanup. Countywide cleanup set for Sept. 17 Meals, wheels, smiles N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS It doesnt get much fanfare or press, but for the past 38 years the people on the receiving end of a daily hot meal delivered to their door wouldnt know what they would do without the Inverness meals on wheels program. The program, which is not affiliated with the national Meals On Wheels Association of America, began in 1973 as a project of the Inverness Womens Club. There was a need, said current program director Gail Sturtevant, and Rena Yauda, Lucille Simmons and Del Lang put the program into effect. The Womens Club even won a Community Improvement award for this. In 1992, the club voted to give up the program and Fran Pierce stepped in to take it over, with Citrus Memorial hospital contracting to provide the meals. The hospital charges $3.90 per meal, five days a week. The program, which runs out of the First Presbyterian Church of Inverness, currently has 19 clients and 25 volunteer drivers. The area of service is limited to Inverness, parts of Hernando and Floral City. On any given weekday including holidays volunteer drivers begin at the hospital entrance on Highland Boulevard, where they wait for the meals to come from the hospital kitchen. We have a weekly lunch menu for patients and a weekly supper menu, and what weve done for meals on wheels to streamline it, the first week it follows the patient lunch menu, then the second week it follows the patient supper menu. Then it starts all over again, said Karen Nodine, CMHS nutritional services aide. On Thursday, Aug. 25, clients got pork loin and gravy, kale sprig, mashed sweet potatoes, winter mix, milk and a dessert. Those on special diets receive food that meets their specific health requirements. Thats the good thing about the hospital doing all the cooking, Sturtevant said. When they sign up, we ask them their dislikes and we try to get what they like, but were not running a restaurant. Still, we get calls about, Im tired of string beans, and we pass that along to the hospital. Each Friday, the volunteer driver drops off an envelope with an invoice and picks up a check from the client on Monday. It costs $19.50 per person per week. The hospital gets paid weekly. Sturtevant said the church doesnt charge them rent, although they have to pay their own phone bill, $51 a month. They also cover the cost of one client who cannot afford to pay, and sometimes help others when they can. In addition to clients paying for their own meals, the program gets a $55 donation twice a month from somebody at IBM, plus the churchs mens fellowship gives them a donation of several hundred dollars annually. Sturtevant said she has nothing but the highest praise for the volunteers, some of whom have been driving for 25 years or more, and for the hospital staff who take the time to prepare the meals. It really is a community service on their part, she said. For more information, call the Inverness meals on wheels office at (352) 726-0350 and leave a message. The office is open from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at (352) 564-2927 or nkennedy@ chronicleonline.com.

Jeff Ashton confirmed to the Orlando Sentinel he is finishing a book entitled Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony. It is scheduled for release in November. He declined to give details. Ashton was the co-prosecutor in the trial of Anthony, the young mother accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. The trial garnered national media attention. Ashton gave an impassioned closing argument, saying that Anthony killed Caylee because the little girl interfered with her social and love life. He was criticized by the judge for laughing during defense attorney Jose Baezs closing argument and apologized. Anthony was acquitted of killing her daughter and Ashton retired days later. Casey Anthony Acquitted in death of daughter.
Associated PressWASHINGTON Hurricane Irene was no mystery to forecasters. They knew where it was going. But what it would do when it got there was another matter. Predicting a storms strength still baffles meteorologists. Every giant step in figuring out the path highlights how little progress theyve made on another crucial question: How strong? Irene made landfall Saturday morning at Cape Lookout, N.C. a bulls-eye in the field of weather forecasts. It hit where forecasters said it would and followed the track they had been warning about for days. People see that and assume we can predict everything, National Hurricane Center senior forecaster Richard Pasch said. But when Irene struck, the storm did not stick with the forecasts predicted major hurricane-strength winds. Its frustrating when people take our forecasts verbatim and say, This is where its going to be at this time and this is how strong its going to be, Pasch said. Because even though the track is good its not certain. But its getting there. By Monday night, five days before Irene first hit the East Coast, the hurricane center figured the storm would come ashore around the North Carolina-South Carolina border. By Tuesday night, they predicted it would rake the coast. And on Friday morning 24 hours before landfall they had the storms next day location to within 10 miles or so. Twenty years ago, 24-hour forecasts were lucky if they got it right within 100 miles and the average 36-hour forecast within 146 miles. With Irene, that was about the accuracy of the five-day forecast. This is a gold medal forecast, retired hurricane center director Max Mayfield said. I dont think theres any doubt: I think they saved lives. The current director, Bill Read, tried not to sound boastful: In the big picture of things, it looks like it panned out very well. There are two reasons for the steady improvement in forecasts: Better computer models and better data to go into those models. With Irene, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration spent extra money with jet flights and weather balloons across the country to get far more data than usual and it paid off in even better forecasts, Mayfield said. Irene also was the type of storm that chugs off Africa that is pretty simple to forecast accurately, said Georgia Tech meteorology professor Judith Curry, who makes private forecasts for energy interests with her firm Climate Forecast Applications Network. Storms in the Gulf of Mexico are much more fickle, with weaker and less obvious steering currents. In 1985, Hurricane Elena caused evacuation chaos as it threatened to hit western Florida twice, but never did so. Associated PressWASHINGTON Damage from Irene appears to be less than feared, a bit of reassuring news for a fragile economy. Insured damage from Irene will range between $2 billion and $3 billion, and the total losses will likely be about $7 billion, according to preliminary estimates by Kinetic Analysis Corp. a consulting firm. Both figures are less than had been expected and likely mean little damage to the nations $14 trillion economy. Irene left several places with black eyes, but it doesnt seem to have delivered an economic knockout, said Ryan Sweet, an economist at Moodys Analytics. The estimates from Kinetic Analysis, based in Silver Spring, Md., suggest Irene will have caused far less insured damage than the $6 billion the industry paid out after Hurricane Isabel struck the East Coast in 2003. The long-term costs of Irene will grow as storm-ravaged areas deal with lost business, insurance claims, dislocated workers and transportation disruptions costs that will take months to fully calculate. Still, rebuilding and repairing the damage from the storm should be enough to boost economic output in the final three months of this year and perhaps beyond, economists say. This region is very highly insured, so a lot of money will start pouring in, and that should re-employ a lot of construction workers who are now out of work, said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moodys. Zandi said he thinks the benefits from rebuilding could extend into next years January-March quarter. Billions will be spent on rebuilding and recovery, noted David Kotok, chairman of Cumberland Advisors. That will put some people back to work, at least temporarily. For now, power outages and flooding will close some businesses, costing workers lost pay and likely boosting temporary layoffs. Transportation and shipping may also be disrupted. Chuck Watson, Kinetics director of research and development, noted the impact on businesses was limited, in part because the storm hit on a weekend. Even so, Watson and Sweet said small businesses on the North Carolina coast will likely lose two weekends of tourist activity, including the travel-heavy Labor Day weekend. Millions of people have lost power from the storm, and analysts said the length of the outages and the extent of disruption to public transportation in cities like New York will help determine the economic damage. The New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ are preparing to open Monday. Mayor Michael Bloomberg lifted an evacuation order for lower Manhattan as of 3 p.m. Sunday. Airlines planned to resume some flights into and out of East Coast airports on Monday. Crews are already restoring power in Southern states hit by the storm and are starting work in the northeast. Irene slammed into a region that is key to the nations economic health. The mid-Atlantic and New England are home to several major cities and account for about 16 percent of the nations economic output, Sweet said. The region also has about 14 percent of the countrys workforce. on physical and occupational therapy. Recently, he had to give up his outpatient therapy when his insurance stopped paying for it. He has a trainer set up in the living room, but its a stationary bike and with that you just pedal, said Donna Nichols, his wife. Prior to his stroke, Nichols rode between 30 and 50 miles a day and up to 100 on weekends. He loved riding on the trail with his fellow cycling club friends. When youre used to doing that hes been saying, I dont know how much longer I can do this, Mrs. Nichols said, referring to the stationary bike. Id say, You have to keep doing this. Id put him in the pool for therapy, but its just not the same as him being out here on the trail. This will get him back with the guys, back with his friends. One friend, Jim Busk, has been riding with Nichols for about eight years. Ever since his stroke hes talked about riding all the time, Busk said. He rides on his trainer a half hour every day. During the Tour de France he rode every day watching it on TV. It only took a few weeks for Busk and the others to pool their money and get this $1,500 bike as a surprise for their friend. They also gave him a pair of mountain bike shoes that clip onto the bike pedals and that he can also walk in. If joy could radiate from a bicycle helmet, it did as Nichols pedaled northward. Once he took off down the trail, someone remarked, Hes never coming back. This means everything for him, Mrs. Nichols said, wiping away tears. He wanted this so bad, to get back on the trail. He had been talking about getting a bike, but it was just too much money. This is so good for him. Bertie Page, the cycling clubs secretary, said this was the perfect time to do this because Nichols insurance had just stopped covering his therapy sessions. Your therapy is your purpose for the day, she said. Without having to be someplace for the day, why get out of bed in the morning? Mrs. Nichols added, Especially when youre used to going 14 hours a day. This will be huge therapy for him, even to ride around the neighborhood. He had calculated our circle at a quarter-mile when he used to jog. Now he can get on his bike and keep track of his distance. When Nichols finally returned from his trek up the trail, it took him a few moments to get his shoes unclipped. As he stood up, his friends hooted and hollered. Cool! he announced, then grew visibly emotional. Thank you, guys, he said. You guys are the best. You guys are the best.

Associated PressSARASOTA At the height of what he calls his addiction, Ryan Van Cleave would stand in the grocery store checkout line with his milk and bread and baby food for his little girls and for a split second think he was living inside a video game. It sounds crazy, but its true: Something would catch his attention out of the corner of his eye maybe another shopper would make a sudden move for a Hershey bar and he was mentally and emotionally transported to another world. World of Warcraft, to be exact. It was his favorite video game, the one he played every night, every day, sometimes all weekend. The sudden movement in the store triggered a response similar to when he was in front of the computer screen, battling dragons and monsters for up to 60 hours a week. Van Cleaves heart pounded. His breathing quickened. But then the 30-something family man would catch his breath and come back to reality. Sort of. World of Warcraft began to crowd out everything in Van Cleaves world. His wife. His children. His job as a university English professor. Before teaching class or late at night while his family slept, hed squeeze in time at the computer screen, playing. Hed often eat meals at the computer microwave burritos, energy drinks, Hot Pockets, foods that required only one hand, leaving the other free to work the keyboard and the mouse. Living inside World of Warcraft seemed preferable to the drudgery of everyday life. Especially when the life involved fighting with his wife about how much time he spent on the computer. Playing World of Warcraft makes me feel godlike, Van Cleave wrote. I have ultimate control and can do what I want with few real repercussions. The real world makes me feel impotent ... a computer malfunction, a sobbing child, a suddenly dead cell phone battery the littlest hitch in daily living feels profoundly disempowering. Despite thoughts like this, despite the dissociative episodes in supermarkets, he did not think he had a problem IRL gamerspeak for In Real Life. But he did, and a reckoning was coming. Van Cleave earned a masters degree and a PhD in creative writing at Florida State, was named a poetry fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and found a teaching job at the University of WisconsinGreen Bay. Then in fall 2003, he was offered a tenuretrack position at Clemson University in South Carolina his dream job. His wife, Victoria, became pregnant for the first time; the baby was unplanned and Van Cleave admitted being shocked at the idea of becoming a father. He and his wife were late for her first ultrasound because Van Cleave was playing Madden Football, a sports game. It was around this time World of Warcraft entered his life. Van Cleave ended up playing one entire weekend, stealing away to the computer while his family was sleeping or while his parents, who were visiting, played with his baby daughter. Victoria used one word to describe her feelings: disgusted. She felt abandoned. I couldnt believe that someone could choose a virtual family over a real one, she said. One reason Van Cleave was so captivated: It offered different perspectives. Previously, most games Van Cleave played were seen from a birds eye view, looking down at the action. In WoW, a player can zoom, pan and look at a scene exactly how a human does in real life. Three years into his job at Clemson, Van Cleaves life began to fall apart. His four dogs died, one after another from various causes. His wife was pregnant again. Then Van Cleave began to get the impression other faculty disliked him and wanted him gone. But he didnt try to repair the rifts, instead channeling his anxieties into WoW, a virtual world he could control. All that tethered me to anything meaningful during this time was WoW, which I clung to for dear life, he wrote. In the past five years, news stories have described people suffering exhaustion after playing a game for 50 hours straight, of teens killing their parents after having games taken away and of parents neglecting infants while mesmerized by the online world. Yet not all authorities believe games are addictive. I do not believe that the concept of addiction is useful; it only describes strong temptations; it does not explain strong temptations. What makes the temptation so strong? The memory of past pleasant experiences with the behavior that we are talking about in this case videogames, wrote Jackson Toby, a professor emeritus of sociology at Rutgers University, in an email to The Associated Press. I dont believe that someone can be addicted to videogames. The American Psychiatric Association will not list video game addiction as a mental disorder in the 2012 edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. However, the APA said there is a possibility a group of rewardseeking behavioral disorders including video game addiction and Internet addiction will be included in an appendix of DSM-5 to encourage further study. Van Cleave and others insist video game addiction is similar to gambling By the time his second baby was born in 2007, Van Cleave was playing some 60 hours a week. A few months later, Clemson didnt renew his contract and said he would not achieve tenure. He was hired for a one-year fellowship at George Washington University, teaching one class, but that meant he had more time for gaming while the stress of finding a longterm, full-time job ratcheted up. He spent money on gaming and bought two new computers so he could see better game graphics. In 2007, Van Cleave had three different World of Warcraft accounts (each at a cost of $14.95 a month). A secret Paypal account paid for two of the accounts so his wife wouldnt hound him about the cost. He spent $224 in real money to buy fake gold, so he could get an in-game epic-level sword and some top-tier armor for his avatar. Changes in Van Cleaves personality began to appear. Among those who noticed was his best friend from high school, Rob Opitz, who lived in another state but played World of Warcraft with him for years. When things in IRL in real life would interrupt what was going on in the game, he would get very loud very quickly about those things, Opitz recalled. During that time, its kind of like everything was completely over the top. It wasnt that he was a little mad, he was in a full-blown rage. Van Cleave was about to hit bottom. It was Dec. 31, 2007. Van Cleave was halfway through his yearlong fellowship at George Washington University. Yet there he was, standing on the Arlington Memorial Bridge. He was thinking about jumping into the icy water. He had been gaming for 18 hours straight and wasnt feeling well. He had told his wife he was going to buy cough drops for his sore throat. But his misery was not just physical. My kids hate me. My wife is threatening (again) to leave me, Van Cleave would write in his book. I havent written anything in countless months. I have no prospects for the next academic year. And I am perpetually exhausted from skipping sleep so I can play more Warcraft. That night marked the first time Van Cleave realized he had a problem. The self-examination pulled him back from the bridge railing. He went home and deleted the game from his computer. For the next week, his stomach and head hurt and he was drenched in sweat like an addict withdrawing from drugs. Staying away from WoW was difficult, but he didnt re-install the game. And he started rebuilding In Real Life.A6 M ONDAY, A UGUST 29, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S TATE To place your Bingo ads, call 563-3231 Refreshments Avail.

He became addicted to a video game. Stetson Kennedy AUTHOR AND FOLKLORIST MIAMI Author and folklorist Stetson Kennedy, who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan six decades ago and exposed its secrets to authorities and the public but was criticized for possibly exaggerating his exploits, died Saturday. He was 94. Kennedy died at Baptist Medical Center South near St. Augustine, where he had been receiving hospice care. In the 1940s, Kennedy used the Superman radio show to expose and ridicule the Klans rituals. In the 1950s he wrote I Rode with the Ku Klux Klan, which was later renamed The Klan Unmasked, and The Jim Crow Guide. Exposing their folklore all their secret handshakes, passwords and how silly they were, dressing up in white sheets was one of the strongest blows delivered to the Klan, said Peggy Bulger, director of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, in a 2007 interview with The Associated Press. She was a friend of Kennedy for about 30 years and did her doctoral thesis on his work as a folklorist. If they werent so violent, they would be silly. Kennedy began his crusades against what he called homegrown racial terrorists during World War II after he was deemed unworthy for military service because of a back injury. He served as director of factfinding for the southeastern office of the Anti-Defamation League and served as director of the Anti-Nazi League of New York. All my friends were in service and they were being shot at in a big way. They were fighting racism whether they knew it or not, Kennedy said. At least I could see if I could do something about the racist terrorists in our backyard. Using evidence salvaged from the Grand Dragons waste basket, he enabled the Internal Revenue Service to press for collection of an outstanding $685,000 tax lien from the Klan in 1944 and he helped draft the brief used by the state of Georgia to revoke the Klans national corporate charter in 1947. Kennedy infiltrated the Klan by using the name of a deceased uncle who had been a member as a way to gain trust and membership. But the Klan did not know Kennedy was giving its secrets to the outside world, including the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the Anti-Defamation League and Drew Pearson, a columnist for The Washington Post. When he learned of plans for the Klan to take action, he would make sure it was broadcast, thwarting them. They were afraid to do anything. They knew that somebody was on the inside. They had first-class detectives looking, and I was trying hard not to be caught, Kennedy said. Kennedy said he always feared exposure and remained scared throughout his life. Nonstop, to date, mentioning threats, the shooting of his dog and frequent attempts to burn his home. In the late 1940s, Kennedy took his fight against the Klan to a national stage when, while working as a consultant to the Superman radio show, he provided information to producers on information about the Klan from their rituals to secret code words. The episodes were titled Clan of the Fiery Cross. Obituaries NO LOCAL OBITUARIES The Citrus County Chronicle did not receive any local obituary submissions at its 3 p.m. deadline Sunday.

Page A8 MONDAY, AUGUST 29, 2011 Who is listening? There are commercial, government and private entities and individuals on different sides of the proposed U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services management plan for Kings Bay. Instead of a federal mandate, which will restrict our use of Kings Bay, we should be building on our past successes which have included: The purchase of Three Sisters Springs and saving it from developers. Secondly, there has been a very substantial increase in the number of manatees in our area. We have also enjoyed impressive growth in ecotourism, which has fostered a related increase in businesses that cater to tourism. Citrus County is the first county in Florida to have a manatee element in its Comprehensive Plan. Finally, the city of Crystal River even has a manatee element in its comprehensive plan. Our efforts on a city, county and state level have already proven a great deal of success without any mandates. A federal mandate would cost the citizens of Crystal River money, freedom, and the unencumbered use of Kings Bay during the summer months, disregarding our successes. In a July 29 article in the Chronicle it the chairwoman of the Save the Manatee Club stated that this is a local issue. During a visit to Three Sisters Springs by U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent, who stated his opposition to a federal mandate, the chairwoman stated that she was shocked by the congressmans opposition to the mandate. Elected officials on the city, county, state and federal levels and many local citizens, who are opposed to a federal mandate, appear to not even be considered by USFWS. We have a federal agency that is comprised of paid appointees, who do not live or pay taxes locally, wanting to dictate what may become our local mandate. All parties involved should be able to talk and listen. All I have observed is that the agency that would like to impose the federal mandate doesnt seem to be listening. It appears a decision has already been made. Alan Foster Crystal River Compromise needed Thank you for the Aug. 11, editorial, Does D.C. really know whats best? You did not state an opinion, but did recognize that the issue was heavyhanded by FWC. Many do not understand the complicated issues involved here. If one is against the slow speed all year, they are labeled as anti-manatee. Nothing could be further from the truth. We have manatees behind our home every day. They are amazing and very friendly. We try to protect their solitude by reminding boaters that follow them that we also have alligators in these waters. They think twice before jumping in and playing with the manatees. We have no dog in this fight as we do not tube or water ski at this point in our lives. We do boat and kayak often. Those who kayak, canoe and snorkel should know that the channels are not the safe place for this activity. Many do not! More rules and regulations will not correct stupid. If the present rules were enforced, perhaps many of the problems would correct themselves. If we cannot enforce the present rules, why make more? There is a recreation area in the Kings Bay for just a few short months of the year. Weekend holiday traffic is slow speed. The winter months with the large manatee population are low speed. All the canals and areas close to land are low speed. We have protected the manatees so well that some are now starving. Malnutrition will be the biggest problem, not boats. I definitely want to protect the manatees, but I also care about human lives. The recreation area is small, with mooring boats taking up much of the space. The Crystal River is not safe for tubing/skiing with children because of all its commercial activity. Im only asking that as much concern is given to children/humans as is given to the manatees. There is no one side to this debate. Compromise should win out. Gail Jannarone Crystal River I am pleased to report the sighting of an artifact so rarely seen among Democrats that it has become the stuff of legend and conjecture, like Bigfoot or the Loch Ness monster. It is called a spine. Said spine was briefly glimpsed a little over a week ago at a jobs summit in Inglewood, Calif., in the person of Rep. Maxine Waters. Im not afraid of anybody, the California Democrat said. ... And as far as Im concerned, the tea party can go straight to hell. Her words left the Tea Party Patriots sputtering about the need to play nice. The president and all leaders of the Democratic Party, who have called for civility in the past, are neglecting to censure their own, the group said, according to The Washington Post. Is civility only required from their opponents? Which is funnier than a Bill Cosby monologue, coming from the folks who turned town hall meetings into verbal brawls and threw rocks through windows because they opposed health care reform. I intend no blanket lionization here of Rep. Waters, who is the object of a protracted ethics probe and whom I have for years privately dubbed Mad Max, in both consternation and admiration of her feistiness. Moreover, as hypocritical and self-serving as the Tea Party Patriots statement is, it is also correct: telling people to go to hell is about as uncivil as it gets. I could never, in ordinary times, applaud such conduct. But no one will ever mistake these for ordinary times. These are, rather, times in which the nations civic dialogue, the ordinary political business of give and take, has been made hostage to the whims of a loud, incoherent minority that has used its very extremism as a weapon. Seventy percent of us, according to a Gallup poll, think both tax increases and spending cuts ought to be used to reduce the budget deficit. That reasonable, balanced approach was not a part of the debt ceiling deal because the tea party threatened, credibly, to push the nation into default rather than allow it. Republicans have been shamefully complaisant toward this behavior, unable to produce a stateswoman or man willing to stand up for the simple idea that one should put national welfare above ideological purity. Democrats have been their usual hapless, communicativelychallenged selves, the congressional equivalent of the kid in school who walks around all day with Kick Me taped to his back, then wonders why people keep kicking him. The need of a viable third party has seldom been more apparent. What is lost here, though, is not simply points for a given party but, rather, our very ability to compromise, which is, after all, the soul of politics. Nor, obviously, will Waters intemperate remark do anything to bring that ability back. But it does acknowledge a reality President Obama refuses to accept: compromise requires a partner. When the other partys bottom line is that you fail, when that is the opponents prime directive, the most important item on their agenda, then you lack both that partner and any basis for negotiation. To put that another way: after you have reasoned with the bully, bargained with the bully, tried to appease the bully, sometimes the only remaining option is to punch the bully in the nose. Thats what Maxine Waters just did. Good for her.Leonard Pitts is a columnist for the Miami Herald, 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, Fla., 33132. Readers may contact him via email at email@example.com.

Some people in public office do things and then suffer the criticism of the armchair experts. During the last local election, voters supported candidates who said they would change the way government operates and work hard to create new jobs in Citrus County. For many decades, Citrus has depended on the construction of new homes to fuel the economy. Our current economic turmoil has devastated the building business, so new options are needed on the jobs front. The members of the county commission are exploring the idea of building a port on the barge canal site north of Crystal River in hopes of attracting new industries and jobs. A feasibility study has been requested and the data is now being pulled together. When the feasibility study is complete, the county commission which also sits as our port authority will have to make the decision on whether or not to proceed. This feasibility study might come back and say that building a port in Citrus County is a dumb idea and should be abandoned. Or it might come back and say this is a good opportunity for industry and job growth. If a port ever gets built here, the major investor will be a private port developer who uses private dollars to make the big things happen. The countys role is to set up the infrastructure and develop a port plan that one of these major developers can get behind. The law of economics in 2011 is that no major developer is going to spend a dime on developing a port if there is not a positive feasibility study that guarantees a return on the investment. This brings us around to the recent county Transportation Planning Organization meeting where some members criticized the county administrator after he made a presentation on the port idea. Led by Crystal River City Councilman Ron Kitchen, some members of the TPO wanted to know what a port would mean to the future transportation needs of the county. County Administrator Brad Thorpe offered the details he had available, but said little is known yet because the feasibility study has not been completed. Kitchen wasnt satisfied and played to the publics skepticism about building a port. The criticism is disingenuous. The members of the county commission were elected because they vowed to create new jobs for Citrus County residents. Jobs dont get created by talk, they get created when actions are taken that entice investors and businesses to spend capital and expand. While criticism comes with any elected or appointed public position, the members of our county commission should be congratulated for taking the bold step of investigating the idea of building a port. For any one of a dozen reasons, building a port may turn out not to be feasible. But at least the members of the county commission arent just sitting on their rumps complaining about high unemployment they are trying to do something about it. There will be a time for public input and debate when the facts are on the table. But it is not fair to sit back and criticize before the facts are even known. What is known is that we have a barge canal that was constructed by the federal government that has really never been used. And we have a bunch of property with the appropriate land-use classification for industrial expansion. The port is an idea worth exploring. It comes with plenty of risks, but there wont be any employment growth unless some risks are taken. How about we wait until the feasibility study comes in before we try to drown the idea with armchair pontifications and political positioning? And how about we tell our county commissioners and county administrator thanks for at least trying to think creatively to help put the unemployed back to work?

to provide assistance. The district is acting as a cooperating technical partner for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in the national program to update and modernize the FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps, called FIRMs. The current flood maps are 10 to 30 years old, and they need to reflect natural and physical changes to properties due to land use, development and erosion. Residents affected by changes should have received letters telling them of the program and inviting them to contact district staff and to attend the meeting. The district said in a press release that future such open houses will be scheduled for other watersheds in the county as the preliminary models for the new maps are completed. The county has already hosted meetings for the district on the Crystal River and Central Ridge watersheds. There are 19 watersheds delineated in the county. At the meeting, preliminary models of the new maps and floodplain information will be presented to the public for their review and comment. Specific, detailed maps will be set up for property owners to look at and comment on. The district said that after addressing the public comments, the floodplain information will be finalized and presented to the water districts governing board for permission to develop the preliminary FIRMs to submit to FEMA. FEMA then begins its formal adoption process which includes its review, a review by Citrus County, more public input with a 90-day appeals period, and finally issuing a letter of final determination that notifies the county and public when the new maps go into effect. The new maps and floodplain information will then be used by the county and water district in a number of ways, including land use and zoning decisions, managing development in and around floodplains and wetlands, reducing flood risks, preserving land and water resources, purchasing property for public purposes, and planning for emergencies. They can also be used in decisions about purchasing and protecting property. For more information or to find out which watershed a property is in on GIS map, go to WaterMatters.org/ FloodRisk/. Residents can also call the district at (352) 796-7211, ext. 4297.

The state wildlife park keeps packing in tourists and Walmart is building a supercenter near Sugarmill Woods, all indications of the potential and vibrancy of economic activity in the area, Wooten added. I dont want to speak for Walmart, but I am pretty sure they do their homework, especially with regard to demographics before deciding to open a store. So, that shows they have confidence in the areas ability to sustain the store, Wooten said. The county commissioner for the area, JJ Kenney, is excited about the jobs Walmart is going to bring to the area. Kenney also noted that while he loves all the businesses locating in the area, he does not want to see the U.S. 19 corridor start looking like areas in the southern counties. I would like to see some of these businesses set back a little from the road, maybe add trees in front or a frontage road. You know, to make it look less congested and keep the natural feel of the area, Kenney said. He added that with the new Walmart and the new SunTrust bank in the area around Sugarmill Woods, residents wouldnt travel longer distances for shopping. I was not born here, but I chose to live here and its the most beautiful area to me and I think others are finding that out too, Kenney said. Chamber president Wooten said a panel of business owners and stakeholders in the area has been formed to figure out the best ways to attract more business. He said some of the things panelists keep bringing up is the need for better signage on U.S. 19 to lead tourists to businesses in Old Homosassa and Chassahowitzka, and maybe a bypass road behind the Publix supermarket to alleviate the traffic pressures at the intersection of U.S. 19 and Halls River Road. Kevin Cunningham, spokesman for the Citrus County Realtors Association, said for the first time in several months, the average price of homes in the county went up slightly in July, and August looks promising. The average price of a home in the county in July was $96,171, a slight uptick from June which was $95,980, Cunningham said. We measure success in three-month increments in this business. August also looks good. If the trend holds that would be great for the area, he said. Cunningham said because of the natural beauty and affordable prices of the Homosassa area, selling homes is not a particularly difficult task; the key, however, is getting potential buyers to give the area a look.

Associated PressMany travelers heading to and from the East Coast still face days of delays even as airlines start flying again Monday at major airports that closed for Tropical Storm Irene. More than 11,000 flights were canceled nationwide over the weekend, and hundreds more will be scrubbed Monday morning, a flight-tracking service said. Theres no easy way to squeeze all those displaced passengers onto scheduled flights, especially if airports around New York the nations busiest airspace encounter delays reopening Monday. And ground transport alternatives remain limited, with bus and train service disrupted into Monday as well along the East Coast. Airlines wont say how many passengers have been grounded since Irene came ashore in North Carolina on Saturday. FlightAware, which tracks cancelations, put the total around 650,000, noting many of the 11,800-plus flights canceled so far were on regional airlines that use small planes. Some travel experts suggested much larger numbers 1 million or more. Finding open seats will be especially difficult this week because its the last gasp of the summer vacation season. Were coming into the Labor Day holiday weekend, so a lot of those flights are already full, said Todd Lehmacher, a spokesman for US Airways. Airlines resumed flights Sunday at airports around Washington, Philadelphia and Richmond, Va. But the longer closure of the New York areas Kennedy, LaGuardia and Newark, N.J., airports means travel delays will continue rippling across the country. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the three airports, said late Sunday that Kennedy and Newark would open to arriving flights at 6 a.m. Monday, with departures beginning at noon.

Officials: 29 dead in suicide bomb BAGHDAD A suicide bomber blew himself up inside Baghdads largest Sunni mosque Sunday night, killing 29 people during prayers, a shocking strike on a place of worship similar to the one that brought Iraq to the brink of civil war five years ago. Iraqi security officials said parliament lawmaker Khalid al-Fahdawi, a Sunni, was among the dead in the 9:40 p.m attack. Maj. Gen. Qassim alMoussawi, a spokesman for Baghdads military operations command, confirmed the bombing happened inside the Um al-Qura mosque during prayers in the western Baghdad neighborhood of al-Jamiaah. The blue-domed building is the largest Sunni mosque in Baghdad. I heard something like a very severe wind storm, with smoke and darkness, and shots by the guards, said eyewitness Mohammad Mustafa, who was hit in the hand by shrapnel. Is al-Qaida able to carry out their acts against worshippers? How did this breach happen? That the bomber detonated his explosives vest inside the mosque is particularly alarming, as it is reminiscent of a 2006 attack on a Shiite shrine in the Sunni city of Samarra that fueled widespread sectarian violence and nearly ignited a nationwide civil war. In that strike, Sunni militants planted bombs around the Samarra shrine, destroying its signature gold dome and badly damaging the rest of the structure. Under deposed dictator Saddam Hussein, a Sunni, Iraqs Shiite majority was persecuted and repressed. Shiites took power after his ouster, stoking Sunni resentment that bore the insurgency. No group immediately claimed responsibility for Sundays bombing, but suicide attacks generally are a hallmark of al-Qaida, which is dominated by Sunnis.

In one case, Gadhafi fighters opened fire and hurled grenades at more than 120 civilians huddling in a hangar used as a makeshift lockup near a military base, said Mabrouk Abdullah, 45, who escaped with a bullet wound in his side. Some 50 charred corpses were still scattered across the hangar Sunday. New York-based Human Rights Watch said the evidence it has collected so far strongly suggests that Gadhafi government forces went on a spate of arbitrary killing as Tripoli was falling. The justice minister in the rebels interim government, Mohammed al-Alagi, said the allegations would be investigated and leaders of Gadhafis military units put on trial. So far, there have been no specific allegations of atrocities carried out by rebel fighters, though human rights groups are continuing to investigate some unsolved cases. AP reporters have witnessed several episodes of rebels mistreating detainees or sub-Saharan Africans suspected of being hired Gadhafi guns. Earlier this week, rebels and their supporters did not help eight wounded men, presumably Gadhafi fighters, who were stranded in a bombed-out fire station in Tripolis Abu Salim neighborhood, some pleading for water. Najib Barakat, the health minister in the rebels interim government, said Sunday that he does not yet have a death toll for the weeklong battle for Tripoli. Hundreds have died and more bodies, some in advanced stages of decay, are still being retrieved from the streets. Barakat said efforts are being made to identify bodies. At the least, the corpses of suspected Gadhafi fighters, especially non-Libyans, are being photographed before burial, to allow for possible future identification by relatives. Officials say allegations will be investigated Associated PressABUJA, Nigeria Two top U.N. officials offered conflicting views Sunday on the safety of its Nigerian headquarters after a suicide car bombing there, as the world body paused to mourn the 23 people killed in the attack claimed by a radical Muslim sect. U.N. security chief Gregory Starr acknowledged safety features could have been better to stop the speeding sedan loaded with explosives. But only hours later, U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro told journalists the building had really, really tight security. Migiro earlier laid bouquets of red and white roses near a U.N. flag flying at half staff at the site of Fridays attack, along with Nigerias foreign minister and the bodys acting local representative. She promised the U.N. would continue its work no matter what in Nigeria, an oil-rich country of 150 million people now violently divided by religion and ethnicity. We cannot allow ourselves to be intimidated by terrorism, Migiro said. A suicide bomber rammed through two sets of gates to reach the U.N. buildings glass reception hall. There, the bomber detonated explosives powerful enough to bring down parts of the concrete structure and blow out glass windows from other buildings in the quiet neighborhood filled with diplomatic posts. While U.N. guards werent armed, Starr said the Nigerian government provided the compound armed security. It remains unclear how those forces responded, though Nigerias federal police are more known for asking for bribes and intimidating civilians than protecting the public. The U.N. also had no specific intelligence or information about Boko Haram, the radical Muslim sect from Nigerias northeast that claimed responsibility for the attack. We had some general threats worldwide and some very mixed, general threat information about the environment in Nigeria, Starr told The Associated Press. But no, (we had) no advanced warning. Associated PressPHILADELPHIA A soldier suspected of killing four people in Pennsylvania and Virginia was found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound in suburban Philadelphia after a daylong manhunt during which he fired at and injured officers, authorities said. The body of Leonard John Egland, 37, of Fort Lee, Va., was found shortly after 3:30 p.m. Sunday in the Bucks County community of Warwick Township, where he had been sought since early morning, said Pennsylvania State Police spokesman David Lynch. Egland fired at officers as he was sought in the Virginia deaths of his ex-wife, her boyfriend and the boyfriends young son, as well as his former mother-in-law in Bucks County, police said. A body found behind a township business under renovation matched the description and clothing of the suspect, said Mark Goldberg, police chief in Warwick Township. The coroner had yet to confirm the body as Eglands, he said. Township residents had been asked to stay in their homes and lock doors and cars as local and state police and two SWAT teams searched for Egland, who evaded authorities as Hurricane Irene lashed the area. I know just from the way the phones were ringing in the police station that it was causing a great deal of anxiety among our people, and for us as well, Goldberg said. Its a tragic event, but at least our residents can rest easy. Police in Chesterfield County, Va., said Pennsylvania police had asked officers at 1 a.m. Sunday to check on the welfare of people at a home, where officers found the bodies of Eglands ex-wife, her boyfriend and his child. Names of the victims were not being released pending notification of relatives. A spokesman said the suspect had no known criminal history in the area.

DeWitt ran through serious humidity Saturday morning and won the 2011 Red Mule 5K Run at McKethan Lake. He had a winning time of 16:54. The former Crystal River High standout is heading to Baldwin-Wallace University, but he is going to remember running in what seemed like 150 percent humidity. DeWitt beat Travis Nichols, a sophomore at Land O Lakes High School, who ran a 17:16 time. I took the lead at about the half mile mark, DeWitt said. It was hot. I remember seeing a thermometer that was 90 degrees. Some old rivals showed up. I felt good about it. I ran it so many times. Jacki Wachtel, one of the best female runners in the North Suncoast, was six months pregnant with her son, Eli, and still won the female race. She had a time of 19:52. The Pasco-Hernando Community College girls cross-country coach ran with her team. No, she doesnt plan to top that by running while pregnant with triplets. About 150 were registered for the race, but as many as 300 runners have participated in the past. Normally, many high school cross-country teams use the Red Mule Run for time trials, but few showed. Hernando resident Paul Dorey managed to survive the run. The 71year-old finished in 37:54. He originally started running after his doctor recommended he try it after suffering some heart attacks. The humidity was not what the doctor ordered. It was my slowest time ever, Dorey said. It was very hot and humid. Dorey finished second in the 7074 age group. Former Citrus High girls crosscountry coach Billy Bass was first in the mens 40-44 age class. Former high school standout sees rivals at regional event Geremy DeWitt wins the 2011 Red Mule 5K. CRHS alum wins Red Mule 5K Kraft captures Amateur trophy Associated PressERIN, Wis. Kelly Kraft took the lead when Patrick Cantlay bogeyed the 16th hole, then hung on for a 2-up victory in the U.S. Amateur final Sunday at Erin Hills. Kraft is an accomplished college player who just finished his senior season at SMU, but he definitely was the lesserknown player in the final. Cantlay, a star at UCLA, is the worlds No. 1-ranked amateur and is considered a rising star with a promising future in the professional ranks. That didnt matter Sunday in the 36-hole final, as Kraft took home the trophy. The Denton, Texas, player was confident going into the final, saying he liked his chances against Cantlay. If they remain amateurs, both finalists will receive a spot in next years U.S. Open, and both traditionally are invited to the Masters. As the winner, Kraft also gets a spot in the British Open. SMU senior beat UCLA standout Federer still hungry for another U.S. Open False start costly for Bolt Associated PressDAEGU, South Korea Usain Bolt again did the unbelievable when it mattered most in the 100 meters. This time, no gold medal or world record, but a false start and straight elimination from the world championships in a race he has regally reigned over for three years. In a stunning few seconds, Bolts showboating turned into disbelief when he jumped the gun and was led away from the track before Jamaican teammate Yohan Blake won gold ahead of American rival Walter Dix. Looking for tears? Bolt asked as a small group of reporters followed him around. Not going to happen. Bolt was in no mood to talk, and instead of wide smiles, he snapped at anyone who tried to ask him about the disqualification. While everyone had been wondering what Bolt would do to his world record of 9.58 seconds, it was Blake who won his first 100 title with a slow time of 9.92, the only racer to break 10 seconds in the final. Dix took silver in 10.08 and Kim Collins of Saint Kitts and Nevis was third in 10.09. I didnt really think they were going to kick him out, Dix said. How can you kick Usain out of the race? Another person who knows that feeling is double-amputee sprinter Oscar Pistorius. The South African was kept from competing by the IAAF until the Court of Arbitration for Sport overturned the ruling shortly before the 2008 Beijing Olympics. On Sunday, he bounced on his carbon-fiber blades, ran past several able-bodied runners and qualified for the semifinals of the 400 in a historic breakthrough for Paralympic athletes. Like always, though, Bolt found a way to capture all the attention and for once in his golden career, he was not playacting. Instead of beating the clock, he beat the starting gun. World-record holder DQd Associated PressSOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. An American flag draped around his shoulders, Braydon Salzman couldnt contain his glee when he found California teammate Nick Pratto to give him a postgame hug. The boys from Huntington Beach are headed home with a Little League World Series championship. Pratto singled in the winning run with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of sixth inning, and Salzman pitched a complete-game three-hitter in a 2-1 victory Sunday over Hamamatsu City, Japan, and the tournament title. USA! USA, yelled fans before Prattos single. I was just thinking. Oh God, Oh God, Before I was getting in the box, the 12-year-old Pratto said. But once I got into the box, I calmed myself by telling myself to just look for a good pitch. Prattos clutch hit returned the World Series title to the United States with the type of victory even the big leaguers dream about. A U.S. team has now won six out of the last seven World Series, with Japans win last year the exception. Pratto tossed his helmet into the air after rounding first before his teammates mobbed him in the infield. The teams exchanged handshakes at the plate before Californias giddy players posed at the mound with their new championship banner. My team is physically smaller than most of the teams. We didnt think we would get to this stage, Japan manager Akihiro Suzuki, who fought back tears after the game, said through interpreter Kotaro Omori. All of the players did such a wonderful job to get to this stage. With runners on first and second, an error by Japan shortstop Gaishi Iguchi on what could have been an inning-ending double play loaded the bases for California. After a force play at the plate, Pratto smacked a solid liner to center off reliever Kazuto Takakura that brought pinch-runner Eric Anderson home with the winning run. Pratto did his father, manager Jeff Pratto, proud. Nick Pratto said it was great to have his father as his coach, but he kind of gets on my nerves sometimes. It was a fitting end to a tense game marked by excellent pitching and timely defense. Japan starter Shoto Totsuka struck out five over 4 1-3 innings, giving up a homer to right to California slugger Hagen Danner. First pitch was delayed more than three hours after the outer bands of Hurricane Irene brought more rain than expected to the Williamsport area. The result was bad, but they really tried their best, Suzuki said. Todays weather was difficult for us to get used to. If the weather was like this in Japan, we wouldnt have played. The clouds finally started parting midway through the game, and sunshine draped the complex by the time the California players left the stadium to cheers by friends and family. Neither team could convert on several chances to break open the pitchers duel earlier in the game. With runners on first and second in the top of the sixth, third baseman Dylan Palmer blocked the bag from sliding Japan runner Ken Igeta on a bunt play to help California get out the inning.

years last major tournament, where play is scheduled to begin Monday morning, after what the U.S. Tennis Association said was minimal damage to the site over the weekend from Tropical Storm Irene. This U.S. Open also is Federers first major tournament since he turned 30 on Aug. 8. That age tends to represent a barrier to success in tennis: Of the past 100 Grand Slam titles, only five were won by a man past his 30th birthday. The last to do it was Andre Agassi at the 2003 Australian Open. Federer, though, said that his age hasnt affected his expectations. Hasnt changed anything. Im still as professional. Im still as hungry. Everythings still completely normal, he explained. Its just a number thats changed. Im ready to go. His resume is filled with some rather impressive numbers, including a total of 16 Grand Slam titles and five consecutive U.S. Open championships from 2004-08, before his 40-match winning streak at Flushing Meadows ended in the 2009 final against Juan Martin del Potro. Last year, Federer lost in the semifinals to Novak Djokovic. For his career, Federer is 223-33 in Grand Slam matches, an .871 winning percentage. He can tie Agassi for the second-most victories at majors Jimmy Connors retired with 233 by beating 54th-ranked Santiago Giraldo of Colombia (who, for the record, is 210 in Grand Slam play) on Monday. Theyre slated to play their firstround match in Arthur Ashe Stadium at night, after seven-time major champion Venus Williams meets Vesna Dolonts of Russia. Other matches on the Day 1 schedule include 2006 U.S. Open champion Maria Sharapova against Heather Watson of Britain; reigning Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova against Alexandra Dulgheru of Romania; 2010 U.S. Open runner-up Vera Zvonareva against Stephanie Foretz Gacon of France; 19-year-old American Ryan Harrison against No. 27-seeded Marin Cilic of Croatia; and No. 8 Mardy Fish the highest-seeded American in New York for the first time against Tobias Kamke of Germany. With 2005, 2009 and 2010 champion Kim Clijsters sidelined by a stomach muscle injury, the third-seeded Sharapova joins Williams younger sister, Serena, as the women considered most likely to win the title two weeks from now. I mean, to be honest, I have been seeded a lot lower, and Ive still been one of the favorites, Sharapova said, so its not anything new for me that people expect me to do well. For the first time since the 2004 Australian Open, neither Federer nor Rafael Nadal is seeded No. 1 at a Grand Slam tournament. Instead, that honor went to Djokovic, who is producing one of the greatest seasons in tennis history. Hes 57-2 with nine titles, including at Wimbledon and the Australian Open. Hes also 5-0 against Nadal, with all of those matchups coming in tournament finals: two on hard courts, two on clay, and one on grass at the All England Club last month. The record speaks for itself, Federer said. Its been an amazing run, and hes still playing really well, and hes definitely one of the favorites here if not the favorite. With two-time U.S. Open runnerup Djokovic at No. 1, and defending champion Nadal at No. 2, Federer is seeded No. 3, his lowest spot in New York since he was 13th in 2002. Even though Federer only has one title so far this season, his lowest total in a decade, and hes gone the past six major tournaments without a championship, hes sure he has more success in store. He still is capable of producing masterful tennis, such as when he ended Djokovics 43-match winning streak by beating him in the French Open semifinals. Thats why someone such as seventime major champion John McEnroe doesnt discount Federers chances of collecting a 17th Grand Slam trophy at some point. This guy is arguably the greatest of all time, McEnroe said. Hes still playing some great tennis. Federer takes inspiration from past players who played well into their 30s, such as Ken Rosewall, Jimmy Connors and Agassi, who was 35 when he lost to the Swiss star in the 2005 U.S. Open final, a year before retiring. I feel my game allows me to still play for many more years, because I have a relaxing playing style. I have almost played 1,000 matches on tour and that leaves its toll, but Im very professional when it comes to massages, stretching, diet, sleep, all of that stuff, Federer said. So I have always looked in the long term. ... Thats why Im confident I can still play for many more years to come at the highest of levels.

Lincicome closed with a 2-under 70 to edge defending champion Michelle Wie and Stacy Lewis, claiming her fifth LPGA Tour victory and second this year. Lewis had the low round of the day with a 67 to finish tied with Wie at 12 under. Wie, who won the tournament last year in Winnipeg, sank long putts on the 15th and 17th holes to make it close. She needed a birdie on the 18th to force a playoff, but missed the green, took a drop to get clear of a fence, and made par. Americans took the top five placings, with Cristie Kerr (71) and Angela Stanford (72) finishing at 11 under. Fears that the tournament would not be concluded because of remnants of tropical storm Irene did not pan out. It rained heavily on the back nine for the leaders and there were gusting winds, but nothing that forced a stoppage of play. I was very patient, singing a lot of songs, very chatty, said Lincicome, who said singing to herself is part of her sports psychology program to stay focused. The weather was not great, but I was still having fun. Im definitely going to remember this win. She cautioned that Im not a good singer, so Im not singing for you. Organizers moved up start times by 90 minutes, had the players grouped into threesomes instead of twosomes, and started groups on both the first and tenth tees to get the fourth round in before the course could be washed out. If the final round had been canceled, there were plans for a playoff between the three 54-hole leaders: Wie, Tiffany Joh and Ai Miyazato. Lincicome pulled her tee shot on 18 into a tent and had to take a drop, but managed to get the ball up near the green, chip it close and make the winning putt. She also had fine saves on the eighth and ninth. Im growing as a golfer, I guess, said Lincicome. If this would have happened a couple of years ago Im not sure how I would have handled it. Playing in the last group, Wie needed birdie on 18 to force a playoff, but missed the green to the right and left her chip shot wide and short. She made the putt to keep a share of second place and win $177,981. Im proud of the way I hung in there, Wie said. Coming in, I had a lot of clutch shots that I can really take positives from. It feels good to be back in contention again. Bjorn wins Johnnie Walker at 5th playoff holeGLENEAGLES, Scotland Denmarks Thomas Bjorn captured the Johnnie Walker Championship on Sunday, winning a five-man playoff on the fifth extra hole in another step in his resurgence. This was the European Tours first five-way playoff in 19 years. Bjorn birdied the par-5 No. 18 to defeat South Africas George Coetzee for his second victory on the tour in 2011. Austrias Bernd Wiesberger, Spains Pablo Larrazabal and Englands Mark Foster were eliminated earlier in the playoff on a cold and windy day at Gleneagles All five players finished regulation at 11under 277. Foster, who shared the lead entering the final round, had been ahead by three shots with seven holes to play. He bogeyed the 18th when he needed a par to win. Bjorn, winner of the Qatar Masters in February and fourth at last months British Open, shot a finalround 69. He sealed the 12th victory of his career after a sensational 7iron approach to the fifth extra hole from 135 yards. The way I played the last three playoff holes, I cant be more proud of what I did, said Bjorn, who earned $380,000 for the victory. That 7-iron was probably one of the best golf shots Ive ever hit. Bjorn became yet another golfer over 40 to win on the tour this season following Ernie Els (South African Open), Thomas Levet (French Open) and Darren Clarke (British Open). Bjorn jumped 11 places in the rankings to No. 59. Its the year of the over-40s, he said. When theres so many young players coming through, its nice to go out there and feel like you can still compete. It gives you a boost that I might be 40 but that its not over yet. This is the first time Bjorn, a twotime Ryder Cup winner, has won two tournaments in one year on the European Tour since 1998. Im delighted, its been a brilliant week, he said. Things are going in the right direction. The outcome marked another blow for Foster, who described himself on Saturday as a serial runnerup. He began the final round tied with Spains Ignacio Garrido and three shots ahead. He failed to wrap up the title when he drove into the deep rough at the last hole and landed next to a tree. After two hacks, he couldnt get up and down. He exited at the fourth playoff hole. A final-day meltdown was nothing new to Foster. He led or shared the lead in three previous tournaments this year French Open, BMW International and Scottish Open without winning. His last win came eight years ago, at the Dunhill Championship in South Africa in a six-man playoff. Its just a game of fractions, Foster said.

Twins 11, Tigers 4MINNEAPOLIS The Detroit Tigers have entered the final month of the season with a sizable lead in the American League Central race and the confidence of a contender. Theyre feeling good enough about their situation that they werent too disappointed by a lopsided loss to the Minnesota Twins. Luke Hughes hit two home runs to help the Twins take out their hitting frustration on Brad Penny and the Tigers, stopping a seven-game losing streak with an 11-4 victory on Sunday. When they got to 11, I think we all were kind of like, Well, its been a pretty good trip, manager Jim Leyland said. The Tigers went 5-2 on the road this week, winning three out of four against the Tampa Bay Rays and taking two of three from the Twins. You cant get hung up on these emotional, day-to-day rolls, Leyland said. I mean, we got beat today. I dont have any problem with that. He added: Five out of seven in Florida against that pitching staff and up here? Ill take that any time. Thatll put you in a pretty good position. We just have to go home and continue to play well. Royals 2, Indians 1 CLEVELAND Manny Acta has seen the injuries for his team mount on a daily basis. The Cleveland Indians manager also realizes there isnt anything he can do about it. We cant call the commissioner and ask for a month off, Acta said after watching his team drop a 2-1 decision to Kansas City on Sunday. After rallying to win the first two games of the series, the Indians revamped lineup, which was without five regulars, was no match for Bruce Chen, who overcame a shaky first inning to win his career-high fifth straight start. Chen (10-5) allowed the first four batters of the game to reach base and walked Carlos Santana with the bases loaded to force in Clevelands only run. The left-hander, who allowed five hits in 7 1-3 innings, is 4-0 in his last five starts against the Indians. Justin Masterson (10-8) allowed two runs in six innings and lost for the first time since July 24. The Indians announced before the game that outfielder Michael Brantley will have surgery to remove a portion of the hamate bone in his right hand this week and will miss the rest of the season. Cleveland also played without outfielder Shin-Soo Choo, who will miss at least the next few days with soreness in his left side.

T:53. A,528 (45,438). Cardinals 7, Pirates 4ST. LOUIS Kyle Lohse received a well-deserved, ice-water shower from his St. Louis teammates after picking up his 100th career win Sunday. Lohse (12-8) gave up four runs two earned in the Cardinals 7-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. He allowed six hits, struck out four and walked two. Lohse became the 36th active pitcher to reach the 100-win mark. He has 106 losses in his nine-year career. Ive been around for a while and its nice to get a nice round number like that, Lohse said. To share it with my teammates is pretty cool. Lohse also put the Cardinals ahead to stay, getting an infield single in the fourth and scoring on Allen Craigs sacrifice fly for a 5-4 lead. Pittsburgh has lost four of its last six. The Pirates fell a season-high 18 games behind NL Central-leading Milwaukee. Lohse, the team leader in wins this season, gave up a run in the first inning and three more in the second, with an error by shortstop Ryan Theriot contributing to the problems.

Jose Altuve got things going with a one-out double against Ramon Ramirez (2-3) and Downs followed with a single up the middle. Altuve was forced into action after slugger Carlos Lee left in the top of the ninth with a sprained right ankle sustained sliding into second on a double. Mark Melancon (7-4) pitched the 10th and got the win despite allowing Mark DeRosas tying single. David Carpenter finished for his first career save.

White Sox 9, Mariners 3 SEATTLE Dayan Viciedos sudden impact in the White Sox lineup only makes it seem as if he should have been called up sooner. Not that this is Ozzie Guillens primary concern. Viciedo homered and the White Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 9-3 Sunday to complete a series sweep. Viciedo put up strong numbers in Charlotte, batting .297 with 20 home runs and 78 RBIs this year. He was up with the White Sox for 38 games in 2010 and hit five home runs with 13 RBIs while batting .308. I dont give a (darn) what people say, Guillen said. People out there have their opinion and thats their job to talk. Nothing I can do about it. In the time they wanted that kid here, I (didnt) have any place for him. We had to make a trade or release somebody. Viciedo was called up from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday when the White Sox placed outfielder Carlos Quentin on the 15-day disabled list. Guillen said Saturday that Viciedo is up with the team to play, not to sit on the bench. Its not a secret this kid can play, Guillen said. I think over the last two years he put himself in a great position to play in the big leagues.

Game 1 Orioles 2, Yankees 0Game 2 Yankees 8, Orioles 3BALTIMORE Curtis Granderson homered twice to take over the major league lead with 38, rookie Ivan Nova won his 10th straight decision, and the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-3 Sunday night for a split of a day-night doubleheader. Granderson hit a three-run drive in the third inning and a solo shot in the seventh. He moved past Jose Bautista, who has 37 homers, and assumed the major league lead in RBIs with 107. In the first game, rookie Zach Britton allowed four hits over seven innings to lead the Orioles to a 2-0 victory. It was Deter Jeters 2,402nd game with New York, breaking a tie with Mickey Mantle for most in a Yankees uniform. But Jeter fouled a ball off his right knee in the third inning, and although he shook off the pain to finish the game, the Yankees captain was a late scratch in the nightcap with a bruised knee. The second game was tied at 3 before New York hit three straight homers in a four-run sixth. After Robinson Cano connected with a man on, Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones also went deep. It was the first time the Yankees hit three successive homers since May 20, 2009, against Baltimore. Nova (14-4) gave up three runs and seven hits in seven-plus innings, striking out seven and walking two. The right-hander has won seven straight starts and is 10-0 in 11 outings since June 3. Brian Matusz (1-7) allowed six runs and six hits including three home runs in 5 1-3 innings. Adam Jones had two RBIs for the Orioles, whose six-game winning streak ended. Baltimore led 2-0 before Granderson hit his first homer. He has 11 career two-homer games, including four this season. In the first game, Britton allowed four singles, struck out five and walked one before being pulled after throwing a career-high 120 pitches. It was a vivid contrast from his previous start against the Yankees, when he yielded nine runs and got only one out in a 173 loss July 30. I wasnt thinking about getting revenge or anything, Britton said. You have to have a short memory. Britton (8-9) has given up only one Associated Press TORONTO David Price blew away the Blue Jays. Price struck out a franchise-record 14 in seven dominant innings, Desmond Jennings hit a pair of solo home runs and the Tampa Bay Rays beat Toronto 12-0 on Sunday. Hitting is hard enough already, Rays catcher John Jaso said. What David brought today made it pretty much impossible. It wasnt just Prices stuff, but a stiff wind blowing out to center field that made him so effective, giving his fastball extraordinary movement. Ive never had that much movement before so it was pretty cool, Price said. The wind kept blowing and it was making my eyes watery all game. I knew it was blowing pretty good and I just kept throwing it. Jaso and Price felt strong gusts pushing them as they walked in from the bullpen beforehand, but didnt know how helpful the wind would be until the game began, and Prices two-seamer started drifting. It looks like a strike right out of his hand and then its just fading off the plate, Jaso explained. It was moving about three feet. Once they start to swing on his fastball, they cant hold it back. Price (12-11) broke the team mark for strikeouts shared by Scott Kazmir and James Shields. He had everything working today, the changeup, the slider, the backdoor cutter, manager Joe Maddon said. Everything was working off the fastball. Thats why their hitters could not get comfortable at all. Price allowed only three singles and walked two. His first seven outs all came by a strikeout, with two hits mixed in during that span. Hes got great movement, Blue Jays bench coach Don Wakamatsu said. You can get down in the count right away. After leaving the game, Price wrote a birthday greeting for his mother on his hand and flashed it for TV cameras. Hed sent her flowers and a card on Friday, but figured shed like the win even more. Rays pitchers set a team mark by fanning 18 batters overall. Reliever Brandon Gomes struck out two in 1 1-3 innings and Cesar Ramos struck out two to end it. Its fun to catch when youve got something like that going, Jaso said. Jennings homered on the first pitch of the game and got a career-high four hits. He drove in three runs, scored three, drew a walk and stole a base from the leadoff spot. Sean Rodriguez added a two-run homer and Matt Joyce doubled twice during a six-run ninth as the Rays improved to an AL-best 20-9 since July 28. The Blue Jays lost their fourth straight. They finished with five hits. Price quickly matched his career high, striking out 12 through five innings. The left-hander didnt fan anyone in the sixth, but finished his outing with two more strikeouts in the seventh, matching and then passing Kazmir (2007) and Shields (2011) for the Rays record. Price improved to 9-1 with a 1.99 ERA in 11 career starts against Toronto. Price didnt give his defense much to do in the first three innings. He did allow a pair of baserunners over that span: Mike McCoy led off the first with a walk and Jose Molina hit a two-out single in the second. Neither runner advanced. McCoy was the first batter to make an out on a batted ball when he grounded to second in the third. McCoy, who walked again in the sixth, was the only Blue Jays batter not to strike out against Price.

Before going on the DL, he surrendered 23 runs in three starts. Not only was it like a break for me physically, but mentally, too, Britton said of his time off. The game was scoreless until the seventh, when Nick Markakis doubled and Vladimir Guerrero singled. Baltimore added a run in the eighth when Mark Reynolds led off with his third hit and scored on a two-out single by J.J. Hardy.
C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S COREBOARD Three steps into the race after the gun blasted, Bolts face turned into a primal scream. And in one instinctive move he started pulling off his Jamaica shirt, needing no one to tell him he had made the biggest error in his career. He was shown the red card and led to the sideline. I was so surprised because we have been talking about that in training and now it happens, Blake said. After the second gun signaled the false start, Bolt gritted his teeth in self disgust and threw up his arms in desperation. Hands over his head, he walked away before slamming against the blue stadium wall. All dreams of a third golden triple in as many major championships were gone, and he had no one to blame but himself. One year ahead of the London Olympics, the world championships showed he is human after all and not an infallible superstar. At the 2008 Olympics, Bolt performed beyond expectations by getting three sprint gold medals and as many world records. One year later at the world championships in Berlin, he did the same with three more titles. Only because his Jamaican 4x100 relay team ran the second-fastest race in history was he denied another three world records. Now the 25-year-old Jamaican has done what no one expected he lost the cool which made him famous. Bolts error will again raise questions about the rule change in 2010 that cut out the allowance to one false start. In the semifinals, world indoor sprint champion Dwain Chambers was also eliminated because of a false start. While everyone expects Bolt to win everything, Pistorius surprised many by getting to the semifinals. The South African recovered from his traditional slow start to power through the final bend and take third place in the final heat of the event. His time of 45.39 seconds was the 14thbest of all competitors. It has been phenomenal to run, Pistorius said. In the tough outside lane, he had to count on a big move in the second half of the race, and with 50 meters to go, five runners were still in it for the four automatic semifinal places. Pistorius dipped at the line for third behind Bahamian winner Chris Brown. Now, some suddenly see him as the direct rival he has become and the competitive threat he now poses. No one wants to get beat by him, Brown said. Me, definitely, I dont want to get beat by him. Later Sunday, Kenenisa Bekele failed to win a fifth 10,000 world title in a row, a feat which would have pushed him past his illustrious Ethiopian compatriot Haile Gebrselassie. Still, the title went to another Ethiopian, Ibrahim Jeilan. He ran down Mo Farah of Britain with an exhilarating sprint to the line. After Kenya had dominated the opening day with six medals, its neighbor country was determined to get on the medals table, too. On top of gold for Jeilan, Imane Merga took bronze. The United States and Russia also got their first golds on Sunday. Brittney Reese defended her long jump title, beating Olga Kucherenko of Russia and Ineta Radevica of Latvia. Her opening jump of 22 feet, 4 inches was as good as gold. Kucherenko got silver with a leap of 22 feet, 2 inches and European champion Radevica was only a quarter of an inch behind for bronze. In the first of six finals of the day, Olympic and defending world champion Valeriy Borchin led a 1-2 Russian finish in the 20kilometer walk. California put runners on first and second with two outs in the fifth, but Takakura got a flyout to end the inning. Playing right field in the second, Takakura also made a running catch on fly down the line to save an extrabase hit with a runner on second. It was Japan running all over the place in the third, flashing trademark hustle to scratch out the games first run after Seiya Fujitas solid single to left. Pinch-runner Kaito Suzuki moved to second on a bunt and raced toward third with no one covering. The throw bounced into foul territory, allowing Suzuki to score easily. In a gracious postgame gesture, Japans players and coaches lined up and exchanged high-fives with the California kids after Huntington Beach did the traditional victory lap around the stadium warning track. Its just a dream come true, Danner said. I never thought we would be in that spot, let alone winning it.

Cantlay, who survived two extra-hole matches to get the final, took a 1-up lead when Kraft bogeyed the par4 10th, but Kraft made a birdie putt on the par-3 13th to square the match. Cantlay then hit a birdie putt on the par-5 14th, again taking a 1up lead. But Cantlay made a miscalculation on the par-4 15th, attempting to lay up with an iron shot on his drive but instead putting it into a bunker, then skying his second shot over the green. Cantlay left a long par putt just short, and Kraft made par to again square the match. Cantlay then missed a par putt on the par-3 16th after pushing his first putt well past the hole, allowing Kraft to take a 1-up lead. Both players found bunkers with their drives on the par-5 18th hole. Both chipped out safely, but Cantlay had the longer approach shot. Cantlay left his approach a little short of the green, while Kraft found a bunker. Cantlay left his chip shot well short of the hole, and Kraft hit his sand shot close to the pin. Cantlay missed his par putt and conceded the hole and the match to Kraft.

E NTERTAINMENT Page B5 MONDAY, AUGUST 29, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Birthday: Although your goals and desires might not be realized in rapid succession in the year ahead, they can be reached one by one. If youre not too impatient, substantial improvements can be made that will better your lifestyle. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If youre planning a group endeavor, get on the horn and do something about bringing those you need together. People wont jump on your bandwagon unless theyre asked. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Dont be surprised if it seems like everybodys attention is focused on you. Because of the genuine concern you show for them, people cant help being drawn to you. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) What makes you such a standout among your peers is your philosophical outlook, which helps you to not only acquire knowledge but also to easily disseminate it as needed. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Even some of your opponents will be in awe of the way you handle challenging developments that suddenly arise. While others are scurrying for cover, youll be settling things. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Although you tend to handle things single-handedly, you might establish a temporary partnership for mutual reasons. Once your purposes are accomplished, youll go your own way. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) There wont be anything selfish about your current outlook. In fact, your primary concern will be that others fare as well as you. Youll even offer whatever help you can. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Dan Cupid is likely to be either looking to revitalize an old romance for you or casing the scene for a new target at which he can aim. In either case, things look good. Aries (March 21-April 19) Getting off to a good start early in the week will help make the work you need to accomplish much easier to finish within the next few days. Youll be ahead of schedule. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Someone who can make your heart beat faster might display much more than a platonic interest in you. Itll be up to you to let him or her know it is welcomed. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Because youve been extra nice to a number of pals lately, they might want to do something special for you, each in his or her own way. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Its quite possible that even those friends who are closest to you arent aware of your wants and desires. Thus, you cant expect any help from them unless you verbalize your desires. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Some of your greatest benefits this week are likely to come from people you dont even know. They wont be purposely doing things on your behalf; itll just turn out that way.

B6 M ONDAY, A UGUST 29, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT At the bridge table, sometimes a bid will be labeled ex post facto as brilliant or foolhardy. The adjective will be chosen only after the declarer play is over. West leads the club queen against six hearts. How should South plan the play? As a secondary matter, what was Wests killing lead? North might have raised one heart to two hearts. But adding two points for his singleton, he had 10 support points. He also held two aces and a five-card suit. (His hand had only eight losers, the number for a game-invitational raise.) So North planned the game-invitational sequence of one spade, then three hearts. However, when South unexpectedly rebid four hearts, North chose a brilliant (or foolhardy) four-club control-bid (cue-bid) to suggest a slam. South ended the proceedings with six hearts. Declarer saw two losers: one heart and one club. To avoid that club loser, he had to establish a long spade on the board. And there was not a moment to waste. South won with his club king, played a spade to dummys ace, ruffed a spade high in his hand, and led a heart to dummys six. East took his ace and returned a club, but declarer won on the board, ruffed another spade high, crossed back to dummy with a trump, ruffed a third spade, then, showing off, cashed his diamond king and ruffed his diamond ace on the board. He discarded his last club on the spade eight and claimed. The contract fails if West leads his trump and East takes his ace to return his remaining heart, killing a key dummy entry.

The problem is, my sisterin-law has had a bedbug infestation for more than a year. She has sprayed the mattresses and covered them with plastic, but wont hire a professional. Six months ago, she got new mattresses and living room furniture, but her husband thinks there is still a problem in one bedroom. My sister-in-laws home is cluttered and not wellmaintained. Over the years, they have had several flea infestations. Their daughter has a drug problem, and she and her kids move frequently between local area shelters and her mothers home. She also sometimes stays with my mother-in-law. Our exterminator advised me to steer clear of my sister-in-laws house and not even bring their Christmas gifts into our home. We have avoided visits for more than a year. This is causing problems in my marriage. My husband thinks I am overreacting and believes it is unlikely we can get bedbugs if we visit or invite his mother to visit. He dismisses the facts about how easily bedbugs are transferred between homes, autos and clothing, and how difficult they are to get rid of. Mom is losing patience and desperately wants to see us and our new grandchild. She claims there are no bedbugs in her home, but I dont see how that is possible due to the frequent exposure. I miss my inlaws, but dont want to risk our exposure or that of my son and his family. How do I resolve this? Cant Handle Bedbugs Dear Bedbugs: We understand your reluctance to expose yourself to bedbugs, but there also is a price to pay for avoiding your in-laws. You need to explain your concerns to Mom, and then enlist your husbands help in finding a solution. Perhaps you could stay in a hotel or with other family members or friends whose homes you trust and meet with Mom in a neutral setting. Or have Mom visit you, watching carefully for signs of infestation. Your grandson can then see Mom in brief spurts. She may, in fact, be bedbug-free, and frankly, as unpleasant as it could get, its worth the cost of an exterminator if it saves your marriage. Dear Annie: My son and his wife have been married for 20 years. I thought we had a close relationship until my husband pointed out that our daughter-inlaw never wishes us a happy birthday. I did notice that she never gets on the phone to say happy Mothers Day or happy Fathers Day, but I just assumed she felt uncomfortable since we arent her parents. However, during a recent birthday celebration for my husband, my son and both of his children entered the house and said, Happy birthday! Our daughterin-law simply walked in and busied herself putting gifts on the table. Why? Bewildered Dear Bewildered: Its possible your daughter-in-law has unpleasant associations with such wishes and has developed superstitions that prevent her from saying the words. You wont know unless you ask. Mention this to your son and see whether he can shed any light on the subject. But if this is the only flaw in your relationship, please dont make a fuss over it. Dear Annie: Midge wrote that her group had given a scholarship to a young woman who never sent a thank-you letter. Fifty years ago at Michigan State University, I worked three part-time jobs to support myself. Then, several wonderful things happened, one of which was a check awarded by the Faculty Wives. I never wrote a thank-you note. The reason? I was from a poor family and had never written such a note in my life. I had no idea it was the proper thing to do.

Foam forbidden? SACRAMENTO, Calif. Restaurant owner Gary Honeycutt says a push in Californias state Legislature to ban the plastic foam containers he uses to serve up takeout meals could cost him thousands of dollars in an industry where profit margins already are razor thin. BJs Kountry Kitchen, in the heart of Californias farm country, uses about 26,000 of the 9inch foam clamshells a year, mostly for takeout by the customers who come in for the restaurants popular breakfast omelets. We put cheese on those omelets. And when we put the cheese on, its really hot and bubbly and it goes right through the biodegradable stuff, he said. He expects his costs would more than double if the state requires him to use only biodegradable cartons. The bill by Democratic state Sen. Alan Lowenthal would prohibit restaurants, grocery stores and other vendors from dispensing food in expanded polystyrene containers, commonly known as Styrofoam, beginning in 2016. If signed into law, the measure would make California the first to institute a statewide ban on such containers. More than 50 California cities and counties already have similar bans The bill would exempt school districts and city and county jurisdictions if they implemented programs that recycled more than 60 percent of their foam waste. Lowenthal said litter from the foam containers is one of the most abundant forms of debris found in city streets, sewers and beaches. Its not biodegradable, its not compostable, and if its in the water for a long time, it breaks up into small beads and lasts for thousands of years. It costs millions to clean up beaches, he said. San Francisco banned polystyrene containers in 2007, but the citys ingrained emphasis on conservation made the switch relatively easy, said Rob Black, executive director of the Golden Gate Restaurant Association. I do know that many of the restaurants had already started a transition to compostable or biodegradable containers, so it was actually not as big of a transition as people might think because it was already something that was happening within the culture here, he said. Other jurisdictions across the country have banned Styrofoam, including Suffolk County in New York and the coastal city of Freeport, Maine. Panda prank FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. Authorities in Flagstaff, Ariz., are assuring residents there are no rogue pandas roaming the city after some pranksters got creative with an electronic street sign. The Arizona Department of Transportation-controlled sign was set up to warn drivers not to make left turns at a busy intersection. But motorists heading to work Monday morning got an entirely different message: Rogue panda on rampage. A passer-by reported the hacked sign to police at about 3 a.m. Monday. Transportation Department spokeswoman Mackenzie Nuno said the sign was restored to its original message by 11 a.m. She said the agency has no suspects, but she noted the hackers would have needed specialized equipment to change the sign. Vampire cruiseJUNEAU, Alaska A weeklong vampire convention on a cruise ship that will feature a vampire ball and costume contest is planned for scenic Southeast Alaska next summer. Holland Americas cruise ship Zuiderdam will be the setting for the event, scheduled for late June. KINY said the ship will make stops in Juneau, Glacier Bay, Skagway and Ketchikan after it departs from Vancouver, B.C. Vampire scholar John Edgar Browning is scheduled to host a vampire movie festival. Also scheduled to join the cruise is Dacre Stoker, a great-grandnephew of Dracula author Bram Stoker and a co-author of a sequel, Dracula: The UnDead. Lost limb found ALEXANDRIA, Minn. A woman who lost her prosthetic leg while swimming in a western Minnesota lake three years ago has been reunited with the limb thanks to an angler. Beth Krohn was fishing last month on Lake Ida in Alexandria. She said her line kept snagging on something, and she hoped it wasnt a dead body. A KSAX-TV report said her catch turned out to be a prosthetic leg belonging to Pam Riley of Morris. Krohn returned the leg to Riley after tracking her down through a prosthetic limb manufacturer in Alexandria. Krohn said shes proud of the catch, comparing it to going deer hunting and shooting the biggest buck. Riley said she always wondered what someone would think if they saw a leg surfacing in a lake. Furry banditTOLEDO, Ohio Police in Ohio have discovered that small flags being swiped from a police memorial were being squirreled away. Two Toledo officers watched on Wednesday as a squirrel quickly snatched a flag off its wooden dowel and ran off with it. Lt. James Brown told The Blade newspaper the bushytailed critter was too quick to catch. Later, police noticed a squirrel hanging out on a tree branch outside a third-floor window at their headquarters building. They also spotted a squirrels nest made of leaves and branches and at least two of the little flags. Brown said at least three of the flags have gone missing in recent days. Hes careful to point out he cant prove all were the work of the same squirrel.

M ONDAY A UGUST 29, 2011 B 9 CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE C LASSIFIEDS 0008KX6 Suburban Industries, Inc. Owner/Manager Name: Gary Philip Badessa and Donna Badessa Business Name: Suburban Industries, Inc. How long has the business been in operation in the Citrus County area? The cooperation was started in 2003, although before that we did sub-contract aluminum work from 1996 until 2003. Describe the service/product you offer? We are a state certified building contractor that specializes in aluminum structures such as screen enclosures, glass rooms, Florida rooms. We also have the knowledge and experience to take on larger projects such as constructing residential and commercial buildings. What do your customers like best about your business? I think it is our attention to detail on our projects. We take great care on our customers construction projects as if we were working on our own home. We also make sure we keep all scheduled appointments with our customers. If we can not make it we will always call to reschedule. What is something your business offers that people dont expect? It is usually the hands on aspect of the construction as we usually use no sub-contractors. When you hire Suburban Industries, Inc. you will see Gary Badessa on job in charge of the construction. Also my wife Donna handles the office work. We are a family oriented business. Why did you choose this business? When I was a young man I worked for my dad in the aluminum business. He was an aluminum contractor in New England for about 30 years until moving to Florida. It has always been a family oriented business. He has passed away and I have been working in construction for 25 years myself. It is something that is just in the blood, sort of speak. What are your business hours, address, phone number and e-mail? Hours: Monday Saturday, 8:00 am 5:00 pm We are located in Lecanto, Florida. 352-628-0562 email@example.com Installations by Brian CBC1253853 0008VXS 352-628-7519 www.Advancedaluminumofcitrus.com 2 0 1 0 2 0 1 0 2010 Advanced Aluminum ALUMINUM FREE Permit And Engineering Fees Up to $200 value Siding Soffit Fascia Skirting Roofovers Carports Screen Rooms Decks Windows Doors Additions BATH REMODELING BATHFITTER 0008WWA 1-866-585-8827 BATHFITTER.COM One Day Bath Remodeling In Just One Day, We will Install A Beautiful New Bathtub or Shower Right Over Your Old One!!!
