New PIO a return resident C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterComing home feels both familiar and strange. For Lindsay Ubinas, taking the position of Citrus Countys public information officer, represents the second time she has left Tampa for life here. The first time, she was a 10-year-old with her parents, who still are county residents. Her mother is a seventh-grade reading teacher at Inverness Middle School. Her father has retired as an internal auditor at GTE in Tampa. Ubinas graduated in 1997 from Citrus High School. She left the county 12 years ago after graduating from Central Florida Community College. Following the completion of her bachelor of science degree in telecommunications from the University of Florida, Ubinas worked for a succession of television stations in Gainesville, Orlando, Winston-Salem, N.C., and WTSP News Channel 10 in St. Petersburg for the past four years. Ubinas said she was ready to return to Citrus County. Already, as she walks along streets, she is greeting friends who knew her before. Citrus County has less stress, Ubinas said. Its just quieter and safe. Its a way of life, growing up here. My parents were never worried that I was out past dark. Ubinas said she is starting G etting to this hidden Citrus County gem takes a little mastery of directions and institutional knowledge knowledge off the beaten path in Old Homosassa. The property lies on the northeastern nib of the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge. It is trapped between the understated beauty of the Florida marsh lands, the Homosassa River, Mason Creek, residential Homosassa and the effortless beauty of the refuge. It was never open to the public. Today, except for a nondescript silverhued gate and a small sign, a motorist driving south on Mason Creek Road can easily glide right by the Chassahowitzka Salt Marsh Trails. However, beyond that gate is a lush stand of oak, magnolia, palm and red cedar, often interlaced with dangling Spanish moss. Under the canopy is an irregular circle of walking trails, at the head of which is a viewing tower and beside it, a kayak launch. What is revealed from the viewing tower is a meandering tributary and islands of vegetation on the edge of the Gulf. And, according to Ross Knudsen, during the winter, just yonder, beyond the island of palms and if you crane your neck just right, you may see, the signature attraction of the refuge the whooping cranes. Knudsen, who is a member of the Friends of the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge, said his group worked for the past four years to get the property ready for INSIDE SEPTEMBER 5, 2011 Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best Community VOLUME 117 ISSUE 29 50 CITRUS COUNTY Labor Day: Honoring Americas work ethic and traditions www.chronicleonline.com INDEX Comics....................B7 Crossword................B6 Editorial..................A10 Entertainment..........B8 Horoscope................B8 Lottery Numbers......B5 Lottery Payouts........B8 Movies......................B7 Obituaries................A6 TV Listings................B6 Classifieds................B9 ONLINE POLL: Your choice?Where to you stand on the right to bear arms?

Americas 14 million unemployed arent competing just with each other. They must also contend with 8.8 million other people not counted as unemployed part-timers who want fulltime work. When consumer demand picks up, companies will likely boost the hours of their part-timers before they add jobs, economists say. It means they have room to expand without hiring. And the unemployed will face another source of competition once the economy improves: Roughly 2.6 million people who arent counted as unemployed because theyve stopped looking for work. Once they start looking again, theyll be classified as unemployed. And the unemployment rate could rise. Intensified competition for jobs means unemployment could exceed its historic norm of 5 percent to 6 percent for several more years. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office expects the rate to exceed 8 percent until 2014. The White House predicts it will average 9 percent next year, when President Barack Obama runs for re-election. The jobs crisis has led A.B. Sidibe OFF THE BEATEN PATH A.B.

Including textbooks. Citrus County schools are moving toward digital textbooks, giving students a remarkable way to read and digest important information on hand-held computer pads. The state is giving districts until 2015 to ensure half their instructional materials are digitalized, which are designed to give students the latest in data and instruction that textbooks cannot provide. State law requires access to a high-quality digital learning environ ment, Mike Geddes, director of technology, told the Citrus County School Board last week. Gema Coleman and Crystal Johnson dont need to be told how digital reading impacts classrooms. They see it for themselves every day. Coleman and Johnson teach high school at CREST. Most of their students have behavioral issues and are tran sition ing between CREST and their home high schools. Reading, in particular, is a challenge for some of these students who have trouble sitting still. Then last year, the district provided 10 NOOK e-readers for the two classrooms to share. The teachers received a grant to buy e-books that students may download onto their NOOKs. And the teachers discovered something amazing. They loved it, Coleman said. One advantage stood out immediately. Students in their classes read at different grade levels and some at lower grade levels are embarrassed to be seen with their books. Not a problem with the NOOK. Its private, Johnson said. No one else can tell what theyre reading. CREST Principal Rich Hilgert praised the commitment Coleman and Johnson have shown. These two have done this on their own, he said. William Teachman, 17, said he enjoys reading traditional books and novels downloaded on the NOOK. The NOOK is easier to use, he said. You just touch it and it turns the page. Codie Posila, 16, said he sees big advantages of a NOOK. You wont have to worry about ripping up a textbook, he said. Coleman and Johnson, constantly on the prowl for grant opportunities, learned last week they received a grant from Dollar General to buy MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle William Teachman, a high school reading student at the CREST School uses a NOOK to read a book recently.

color NOOKs that will allow them to download math and science textbooks. District officials are preparing a pilot program to provide digital textbooks to 300 students. Funded with a $150,000 grant, officials say they want to see the practical use of digital textbooks and teaching before embarking on a districtwide effort. Were stepping into a world weve never been to, Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel said. Geddes agreed. There are so many pieces to that whole picture, he said. We have a lot to learn.

They built a pavilion with seating and table tops made of red cedar claimed from fallen trees, cleared the trails and built the observation towers. Next for the group is labeling the trees and other flora on the property. Knudsen said the property used to belong to the Cary family and they had two cabins on it. The refuge purchased the property about 15 years ago, but it mostly sat unused. The Friends group, which started in 1998, decided to do something with the property about five years ago. With the blessing and help of refuge officials began the painstaking job of fashioning a trail network and a main service road. Now, people can come use it. They can park in the front and use the opening next to the gate to use the trails, Knudsen said. He added the trails are about a mile combined and very easy to work. However, he cautions there are no trash cans or drinking water. Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at (352) 564-2925 or at asidibe @chronicleonline.com. to adjust to the slower pace. In Tampa, theres the anxiety of getting in the car and driving somewhere, she said. You know it is going to take at least 20 minutes to get five miles. Its a different state of mind. I notice Im getting to places a lot earlier because Im anticipating traffic that is not there. As this is the place where Ubinas grew up, she said she is thinking of it as the place to really settle down. The schools are great here, she said. Its a much better area to raise your children than in Tampa or Orlando. I think I would have been a completely different person had I gone to middle school and high school in Tampa. When she graduated from high school, Ubinas had different goals in mind than she has today. Was she thinking of one day returning to the county? No, absolutely not, was her honest reply. In fact, I was probably like a lot of graduating seniors. My goal was to get out. I always wanted to be in television, to work for the Today show. I wanted to live in New York or Chicago for Oprah and that was my goal. I was thinking so big. However, she said her education in broadcasting opened her eyes. Probably in my senior year of college, I realized that I didnt like being in front of the camera, Ubinas said. I was doing things for CNN at that time. Im more of a private person. I just decided I wanted to be behind the camera and I wanted to feel I was making the decisions. At WTSP Ubinas worked as executive producer for the morning and noon news broadcasts, staying out of the way of the cameras while insuring that all looked good and sounded accurate on screen. In addition to going after the news, she managed a staff of 20, worked on promotions and marketing to increase the viewership and managed production budgets. Now Ubinas is studying ways to help Citrus County. Every night I go home, Im reading, she said. Im doing more reading now than I every have and more research. But I think thats the fun part. Im learning more about Citrus County than I ever did. Being an adult in Citrus County is vastly different than growing up here. But its fun. Im invested in what Im doing now. People have made good impressions on Ubinas, too. What Im learning is that everybody here wants to make this county a better place to live, she said. The county commissioners are all different in a way that they work really well together. Ubinas said she sees her duties as helping county residents feel a greater sense of ownership in county business, especially residents who recently have relocated here. At the same time, she wants people outside of Florida to get to know Citrus County for the many assets it has to offer. In terms of marketing, we want people to know where Citrus County is and what its all about: the kind of people here and the kind of lifestyle here that is attractive, especially for young families, she said. She will work with county officials to present the plan for Port Citrus to lawmakers in Tallahassee. We will work with a vision of being more global, Ubinas said. We want people to know who we are and to recognize what the county has to offer. In that endeavor, Ubinas will work with the Citrus County Economic Development Council and the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce to attract new businesses to the county with the goal of broadening the employment base. In her own time, Ubinas enjoys the outdoors activities the county has to offer. She goes running in the parks. I love being outdoors, she said. Im on a boat a lot. Me and my fianc go out there a lot. All in all, Ubinas is glad to come home. I get excited when people know where Inverness is, she said. Its fun when people know where youre from. I want more and more people to know where we are. In a lot of ways, it is very comforting to be back here.

The local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution will present the banner during a brief 5:30 p.m. ceremony at the Inverness Government Center. The banner was designed by the organizations national chapter to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the attacks. The banner depicts the World Trade Center towers in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. The twin towers and Pentagon were struck by planes piloted by terrorist hijackers; a third plane crashed in a Shanksville, Pa., field after passengers onboard forced hijackers to abandon a third target believed to be the White House or Capitol Building. Along with the banner dedication and speeches to mark the solemn anniversary, a Freedom Walk will lead from the Inverness Government Center to the Old Courthouse and back. Remax Realty One Inverness office staff will hand out American flags to participants. From noon to 7 p.m. inside the government building, a memorial exhibit will once again be assembled in the City Council Chamber. Uniforms, medals, photos, newspaper articles, pieces of the World Trade Center and other artifacts will fill the large room. The display is assembled annually by former New York-New Jersey Port Authority Officer Andy Tarpey and other members of the National Association of Retired Law Enforcement Officers (NARLEO). Tarpey personally knew several of the 37 Port Authority officers killed in the attacks on the Trade Center, and the exhibit has become a personal commitment to him. It has grown to be one of the largest private collections to be displayed in the state. During the ceremony, the Professional Firefighters of Citrus County will present a check toward efforts to build a 9/11 memorial in Liberty Park later this year. The memorial will feature two granite columns symbolizing the Trade Center towers, and a piece of steel recovered from ground zero. Tarpey and fellow retired officers spearheaded efforts to raise funds for the $15,000 project. Thousands of dollars have been contributed by numerous county businesses, organizations and others. The memorial will include an inscription that reads: Dedicated to the courage, strength and indomitable American spirit of those who perished and those who persevered during the events of September 11, 2001.

Thats what the people at Inverness Golf & Country Club are asking regarding the city of Inverness $17 million wastewater treatment facility. Located in the unincorporated area of Inverness, Inverness Golf & Country Club is slated to be the plants first customer for reclaimed water to be used for irrigation. Its not so much that well be saving money as it means we wont need to be pumping water out of the ground, Inverness Golf & Country Club General Manager Jeff Shelton said. We use 250,000 gallons of water a day, and thats a lot of water. Currently, the 17,000linear-foot pipeline to the golf course community is in place for the front nine holes, with plans to expand to the back nine once the pipeline is constructed. Theyre just waiting for the water to start flowing. The new treatment facility, which was unveiled in May 2010, replaces the citys old wastewater treatment system and has the capacity to treat about 1 million gallons of wastewater per day and the potential to serve 15,000 residents. Right now the plant is producing excellent water, according to Katie Cottrell, Inverness public works director. The hold up is with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), which is Water on hold Wastewater facility waits on protocol approval in the process of approving the language of the Operating Protocol, the document ultimately protects the people and facilities affected by the treated water. This is a situation where you dont just flip the switch, Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni told the Chronicle editorial board. We cut the ribbon about a year ago and even though you can be operating the plant at 100 percent, pass all the tests, get flying colors, if they dont like the way the operating manual reads, we cant get the full permit. DiGiovanni said the citys consultants are working with the FDEP to finalize the document. The next location slated for reclaimed water is Holden Park, which belongs to the county. We have the pipeline design complete for that, Cottrell said, but that project isnt funded yet.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at (352) 564-2927 or nkennedy@chronicle online.com.

Obama to schedule a major speech Thursday night to propose steps to stimulate hiring. Republican presidential candidates will likely confront the issue in a debate the night before. The back-to-back events will come days after the government said employers added zero net jobs in August. The monthly jobs report, arriving three days before Labor Day, was the weakest since September 2010. Combined, the 14 million officially unemployed; the underemployed parttimers who want full-time work; and discouraged people who have stopped looking make up 16.2 percent of working-age Americans. The Labor Department compiles the figure to assess how many people want fulltime work and cant find it a number the unemployment rate alone doesnt capture. In a healthy economy, this broader measure of unemployment stays below 10 percent. Since the Great Recession officially ended more than two years ago, the rate has been 15 percent or more. The proportion of the work force made up of the frustrated part-timers has risen faster than unemployment has since the recession began in December 2007. Thats because many companies slashed workers hours after the recession hit. If they restored all those lost hours to their existing staff, theyd add enough hours to equal about 950,000 full-time jobs, according to calculations by Heidi Shierholz, an economist at the Economic Policy Institute. Thats without having to hire a single employee. No one expects every company to delay hiring until every part-timer is working full time. But economists expect job growth to stay weak for two or three more years in part because of how many frustrated parttimers want to work full time. And because employers are still reluctant to increase hours for part-timers, hiring is really a long way off, says Christine Riordan, a policy analyst at the National Employment Law Project. In August, employees of private companies worked fewer hours than in July. Some groups are disproportionately represented among the broader category of unemployment that includes underemployed and discouraged workers. More than 26 percent of African Americans, for example, and nearly 22 percent of Hispanics are in this category. The figure for whites is less than 15 percent. Women are more likely than men to be in this group. Among the Americans frustrated with part-time work is Ryan McGrath, 26. In October, he returned from managing a hotel project in Uruguay. Hes been unable to find full-time work. So hes been freelancing as a website designer for small businesses in the Chicago area. Some weeks hes busy and making money. Other times he struggles. Hes living at home, and sometimes he has to borrow $50 from his father to pay bills. Hes applied for a million jobs. You go to all these interviews for entry-level positions, and you lose out every time, he says. Nationally, 4.5 unemployed people, on average, are competing for each job opening. In a healthy economy, the average is about two per opening. Facing rejection, millions give up and stop looking for jobs. Norman Spaulding, 54, quit his job as a truck driver two years ago because he needed work that would let him care for his disabled 13year-old daughter. But after repeated rejections, Spaulding concluded a few weeks ago the cost of driving to visit potential employers wasnt worth the expense. He suspended his job hunt. He and his family are getting by on his daughters disability check from Social Security. Theyre living in a trailer park on Texas Gulf Coast. It costs more to look than we have to spend, he says. Eventually, lots of Americans like Spaulding will start looking for jobs again. If those work-force dropouts had been counted as unemployed, Augusts unemployment rate would have been 10.6 percent instead of 9.1 percent. Emma Draper, 23, lost her public relations job this summer. To pay the rent on her Washington apartment, shes working part time at the retailer South Moon Under. Shes selling $120 Ralph Lauren swimsuits and other trendy clothes. Her search for full-time work has been discouraging. Employers dont call back for months, if ever. Youre basically on their timeline, Draper says. Its really hard to find a job unless you know somebody who can give you an inside edge. Retailers, in particular, favor part-timers. They value the flexibility of being able to tap extra workers during peak sales times without being overstaffed during lulls. Some use software to precisely match their staffing levels with customer traffic. It holds down their expenses. They know up to the minute how many people they need, says Carrie Gleason of the Retail Action Project, which advocates better working conditions for retail workers. Its almost created a contingent work force. Draper appreciates her part-time retail job, and not just because it helps pay the bills. It takes her mind off the frustration of searching for full-time work. Right now, finding a job is my job, she says. If that was the only thing I had to do, Id be going insane. There is only so much time you can sit at your computer, sending out resumes. Leonard reported from St. Louis. AP Business Writer Ellen Gibson in New York contributed to this report.

Utah ends 4-day workweek experiment Associated PressSALT LAKE CITY Utahs experiment with a first-in-thenation four-day workweek for state workers is over. Beginning Tuesday, they will be back on the job five days, but they wont be working a full week just yet. The Labor Day holiday will shorten the week to four days. Lawmakers scratched the experiment, saying it was not saving as much money as hoped and residents were complaining about not having access to services on Fridays. The change wont be easy for many employees, said Todd Sutton of the Utah Public Employees Association. Some had arranged daycare schedules for the four-day week, while others were using their free Fridays to work second jobs or volunteer. Employees struggled because they adapted their lives to one schedule, Sutton said. And then it goes to a different schedule. Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman launched the /10 workweek 10 hours a day, Monday-Thursday for thousands of employees in 2008 to improve efficiency, reduce overhead costs and conserve energy at a time when budgets are tight and resources are dwindling. A 2010 legislative audit showed the savings never materialized, in part due to a drop in energy prices. The bill that stopped the experiment called on state offices to be open five days, but left it up to the executive branch to determine whether to still schedule workers on for the four-day weeks. The failure of Utah state government to see the savings, however, isnt reflective of what has been happening in other states and cities that have tried the alternative work week. In Provo, Utah, one of the states largest cities with more than 100,000 people, the four-day workweek has been in place for years, with city offices open Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mayor John Curtis said the 4/10 system has improved employee morale and seems to save money. He said the four-day workweek may be more effective at a local level than with a state government. Our residents see city employees working, and they know the city is responsive to them, Curtis said. People dont have that same interaction with state employees ... and the state needs hundreds of offices, while we only need one, he said. In El Paso, Texas, Mayor John Cook is proposing a year-round four-day workweek after experimenting with it during the past two summers. It has a positive impact on productivity and saved us a lot of money, he said. Cook said the projected savings for the city of about 800,000 people was more than $400,000 annually, primarily because of lowered utility and fuel costs. There havent been many complaints about offices being closed Fridays, Cook said. Where there are concerns, such as business licensing, the city is developing online solutions. Creative solutions are becoming more popular for governments facing tight budgets, said Rex Facer, a Brigham Young University associate professor who has studied the effectiveness of fourday workweeks. Facer worked with El Paso and Provo officials to develop their policies. Lawmakers in Oregon and Texas considered four-day workweek bills this year, but neither passed.

Weird WIRE Farm dog CAMAGUEY, Cuba Yeti the dog already had a litter of pups to care for when the piglets adopted her as a second mom. Ever since, the Cuban farm dog has been pulling doubleduty, nursing not just her own young, but also the 14 swine. Farmer Mannorkys Santamaria said the piglets also take milk from their mothers, but when they see Yeti, they run to her for a meal. On a recent day, the young porkers followed her around the farm as if she were their real mother. No one imposed this on the dog, Santamaria said. The piglets discovered this on their own and began nursing with her when they turned 15 days old. Santamaria, 35, and his wife Eida Fernandes, 40, raise pigs, chickens, doves and turkeys on their small farm in the eastern province of Camaguey. There are also several mixedbreed dogs who have showed up on the property over the years and stayed. Not so identical FAIRBAULT, Minn. A Minnesota boy who made an incredible hockey shot during a charity event wont collect the $50,000 prize because his twin brother should have taken the shot. The company that insured the event, Odds On Promotions, said Wednesday it would instead donate $20,000 to youth hockey in Minnesota in the boys names. Eleven-year-old Nate Smith hit the puck through a tiny hole 89 feet away during a charity hockey game in Faribault on Aug. 11. But it was Nates identical twin, Nick, whose raffle ticket won the chance to take the shot. The boys father, Pat Smith, said Nick was outside and told his brother to try. Smith told organizers the next day about the swap. Smith said Wednesday the boys are disappointed, but excited youth hockey will benefit. Wallet returnedSOLON, Ohio Police in the Cleveland suburbs say an Ohio man has been reunited with his lost wallet containing $4,600. A woman found it in a shopping cart outside a Bed Bath & Beyond store in Solon on Thursday and took it to police. Thirty-year-old Leah Kleppinger of Twinsburg told The Plain Dealer of Cleveland keeping the money would have been stealing. Solon police Lt. Bruce Felton told reporters in an email: There are still honest people in this world. Felton described the man who lost the money as someone who carries a lot of cash in his work. When he picked up the wallet, the man left a reward for Kleppinger at the police station. She wont say how much, but said it was completely unnecessary.Lingerie litter LANCASTER, Ohio Authorities in central Ohio are trying to solve a panties puzzle: why hundreds of pairs of mostly womens underwear were dumped along the side of a road. Fairfield County Deputy Gary Hummel said Thursday the undergarments were found in trees and on hillsides in several spots this week on a road in Berne Township, about 30 miles southeast of Columbus. He said some of the panties were still folded the way theyd come in packaging, while others appeared to have been worn. There were nearly 1,700 pairs in all, in a mix of colors and patterns. Hummel says when collected, they filled 10 large trash bags. He says investigators are baffled as to where the panties came from. Hero poodleWEST JORDAN, Utah Authorities say a toy poodle saved a life in Utah by leading firefighters through his owners smoke-filled home to a man asleep in the basement. The Salt Lake Tribune reported the dog named Ted was spotted by paramedics responding to the fire in West Jordan early Friday. Officials said when they tried to catch Ted to bring him outside, he headed downstairs instead. They said he waited until they caught up with him, then led them to a 19-year-old man who was sleeping on a couch in the basement. Authorities said the man was treated for smoke inhalation, and the dog was not injured. A woman and two children had already escaped the fire, which was possibly caused by a gas leak. Polar bear visit OSLO, Norway A Norwegian boat crew recently had an unexpected wake-up call when a full-grown polar bear climbed aboard their anchored ship for a 30-minute-long sniff around the deck. Captain Einar Vallestad said Saturday the bear had been following the Hydrograf vessel in northern Norway for days before finally venturing onboard. Vallestad said it did no harm. He was just putting his head into our rubbish container. The 11-man crew was on assignment for the Norwegian Mapping Authority. A night guard woke up crew members to warn them about the furry visitor. The crew safely watched from the steering cabin as the bear curiously wandered around the vessel before climbing back into the icy waters. No one was harmed during last Saturdays incident.Bats in class BUCHAREST, Romania There was no sign of Dracula, but students in Transylvania did get a visit from dozens of bats that flapped through their classroom. The students at Csiky Gergely high school in the western Romanian city of Arad were about to take an exam Friday morning when they found bats flying around the room. Others appeared to be sleeping with their wings spread out on the floor. School official Mirela Aldescu told Romanian daily Adevarul the creatures had probably flown in overnight through open windows. She said rather than disturb them, students took the exam in another classroom. Transylvania was home to Vlad the Impaler, the 15th century ruler who inspired Bram Stokers Dracula. From wire reports Feds: Cape Cod island cottages must go Associated Press CHATHAM, Mass.O n a speck of island across Chatham Harbor, a weathered doorway opens to a cottage where beach towels substitute for couch covers and an old-fashioned hand pump counts as a kitchen faucet with no option for hot. This Cape Cod dune cottage, known as the Carroll Camp, has no electricity. The only running water flows off the roof into barrels that feed a shower and the sink. At night, the brightest lights flicker from a nearby lighthouse. But families stay on the island for weeks at a time, spread out among wood-sided and cedarshingle cottages built between beaches and bayberry bushes. A boat ride is the only way in. The trip covers less than a mile, but feels farther when visitors step into the chilly shallows and head to shore. Its like coming to heaven, said Susan Carroll, whose family has leased the tiny, gray cottage for 20 years. But no place is perfect. The ocean that gives the cottage its remoteness is also washing away the 250-acre island. Last month, the Cape Cod National Seashore told the Carrolls that, for public safety, their annual lease was being terminated and the camp was going to be burned or demolished. Now, the Carrolls and four other families with similar cottages on North Beach Island have until next month to get personal items out. The decision has brought sadness and outrage in Chatham, where the rustic camps are fixtures on the horizon. Residents say demolishing five of the existing 11 camps is unnecessary, and a pointless hit to the towns heritage. I have never seen a more sort of callous and unilateral decision by a government entity in my time on the board, said town selectman Sean Summers. Those camps are part of our collective soul, really, as a community. George Price, head of the agency, a National Park Service division which owns the camps, said he realizes the camps are special to Chatham and families whose children virtually grew up there. But the shoreline, on the ocean side, is retreating back about 80 feet per year, he added. Two of the camps likely wont make it through the winter and need to be quickly removed before they collapse. And the others have no more than a season or two left. Tropical storm Irene had virtually no effect on the camps but the concern is the next storms inevitably will. Its far cheaper to remove all the camps at one time, Price said. In this particular case, Mother Nature has worked against us, Price said. We believe the window of opportunity is fairly limited before the majority of the winter storms actually come in. Chathams Coastal Resources Director, Ted Keon, agrees with the Seashores decision, which he says was sudden but not surprising. The erosion is intensifying, the risk of the collapse of the camps is real, he said, and so are the hazards the debris could in create in the waterways. (If its) obvious that things need to get removed, you should remove it ahead of time as opposed to just sitting back and letting it get knocked down, Keon said. The existing camps first popped up on the beach in the 1940s, after locals paid a few hundred dollars for a plot of land and built the camps as retreats or as hunting and fishing cottages. The government took over some of the camps after the Cape Cod National Seashore was established in 1961 to preserve the coastline. Anyone whose camp was built after 1959, or who couldnt prove ownership, lost their camp, but received compensation or usage rights in return. The other camps remain privately-owned. Today, the Seashore leases each of the five camps it owns for $8,000 a year. The Carrolls, for instance, pay for it by renting out their yearround home on mainland Chatham during the summer weeks they stay at the camp. The islands recent natural history is dynamic and at times devastating for the camps. It was once part of a continuous barrier beach, but became part of a peninsula in 1987 when the sea broke through south of the camps. Four years later, the so-called Perfect Storm of October 1991 wiped the camps out, though many were later rebuilt on sturdy pilings to brace against another catastrophic hit. Remnants of roads are reminders that the land was recently accessible from the mainland, until the ocean split through north of the camps during an April 2007 noreaster. The island is now about 2.5 miles long, two-tenths of a mile wide at its widest point, and high tide creeps to within yards of a couple camps. No one disputes the island is breaking down, but people want to preserve the camps as long as possible, said Susans husband, Roger Carroll. He said his camp and others are in no imminent danger, and will sit rock-steady for some time on the deep pilings they were built upon following the 1991 storm. The Seashore made a rash decision for reasons it still hasnt justified, he said. They kind of left us alone for all these years, and then all of the sudden theyre in a panic to get them all out, he said. Its like you lost a member of the family. The small community of camp residents has grown close over the years. But Summers, who doesnt have a camp on the island, said even Chatham residents who dont use the camps value them, seeing them as key reminders of the fishing and fowling existence thats the regions true heritage. Some residents are now pushing to have the camps listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as a way to force the Seashore to consider ways to preserve them. Summers added the Seashore acted before consulting with the town about ways to trim the demolition costs or lessen the potential hazards posed by the camps, which Summers believes are wildly overstated. Price acknowledged, I could have engaged in a public conversation earlier. Thats my error. Price said hes still listening as town officials and residents suggest alternatives, but he stood by the projections about the imminent danger to the cottages. The steady degradation of the shoreline is fact, he said. Not all island residents are digging in. Arthur Bloomers family acquired rights to stay at a North Beach camp in the late 1970s, figuring they had 20 years ahead. Three decades later, the 79-yearold is grateful for the extra time, and philosophical about the governments decision. But he added when the camps are gone, something unique will be lost. Theres a way of life over there that nobody understands, he said. Associated Press Roger and Susan Carroll, occupants in one of the 11 cottages on North Beach Island in Chatham, Mass., stand on the islands beach Aug. 23 near three of the cottages. Five of the 11 dwellings, which are owned by the federal government and leased, are slated to be torn down and must be vacated by mid-September. The Carrolls lease one of the cottages scheduled for demolition. Associated Press A dog known as Yeti nurses adopted piglets Friday in Camaguey, Cuba.

Associated PressHARTFORD, Conn. Americas wars since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 have been a boon for the maker of Black Hawk helicopters, a workhorse the U.S. military has relied on heavily to strike targets and ferry troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sales at Stratford, Conn.-based Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. have more than doubled to $6.7 billion since 2005, boosting the economy of a state that has historically had broad defense interests. George Washington nicknamed Connecticut the Provision State during the Revolutionary War for supplying food and cannons to his soldiers. Since 2001, the Black Hawks ability to handle several jobs such as ferrying soldiers and hunting down enemy troops has made it one of the militarys primary tools in unfamiliar countries where it must cover large expanses of desert and rugged mountains. The two wars have marked the longestever campaigns for the helicopter, which has evolved with technological advances to keep sand out of the engine and keep pace with the militarys demands. With about 400 Black Hawk variants at work at any time, the helicopters are among the most heavily used fleet of aircraft in the U.S. Armed Forces, said Tim Healy, director of U.S. Air Force business development at Sikorsky. Its been in incredibly high demand for a very, very long time. The Black Hawk, in the U.S. Army inventory since the late 1970s, saw its first combat in Grenada in 1983 and has been in continuous combat deployments since Operation Desert Storm in 1991. It is perhaps best known because of the book and movie Black Hawk Down, about the 1993 battle in Somalia where two helicopters were shot down, killing 18 soldiers. But nothing compares with the action its seen since the U.S. invaded Afghanistan in October 2001 and Iraq 17 months later. The Black Hawk is the only military helicopter with a dual role in fighting conventional battles and facing down shadowy enemies, said Richard Aboulafia, an aerospace analyst at Teal Group in Arlington, Va. It moves soldiers to and from battles or to medical care and finds and attacks enemy troops. In comparison, Bell, a division of Textron Inc., and Boeing, which makes the Apache attack helicopter, have carved out smaller niches. Counter-insurgency, war-fighting and nation-building: Helicopters are at the center of the diagram, Aboulafia said. The number of military helicopters manufactured by Sikorsky is outpacing production of helicopters used in oil exploration, fire-fighting, search-andrescue and other civilian uses. Analyst Rick Whittington of the brokerage firm of Sturdivant and Co., said Sikorskys profit stands out among aviation businesses of parent company United Technologies Corp. Sikorskys margins, I dont remember them being this high, he said. Sikorskys profit margin was 10.7 percent last year, rising steadily each year, from 8 percent in 2004. For example, during the worst of the recession in 2009, Sikorsky was the only United Technologies business to post higher profit over 2008 due to rising military demand. With about 9,200 workers in Stratford and three neighboring towns, Sikorsky is the largest employer in southwestern Connecticut. Paul Timpanelli, president and chief executive of the Bridgeport Regional Business Council, said the company has helped the region ride out the weak economy. Every time they do well, our region does well. Its all about payroll and its all about people employed, he said. Associated PressGANDER, Newfoundland To hear something nice about 9/11, talk to the plane people, the passengers who wound up on the island of Newfoundland that day because U.S. airspace was shut. Talk to Laura Louie about the overwhelming kindness she and her two small daughters experienced in this distant corner of Canada, briefly transformed by a twist of history into an international aviation hub. We were completely taken care of, she remembers. For everyone else, 9/11 has a heavy connotation. But for me, it was when I was reminded what humanity is. Or listen to Monica Burke, a 44-year-old emergency dispatcher from Seattle: Our whole world was in chaos. We didnt even know where we were except that we were in some weird time zone in Canada. I didnt know when I was getting home, but these people basically put their lives on hold. I mean, their kids couldnt go to school because we were using the schools as shelters. Bus drivers came off strike to drive us. Pharmacists came to the shelters and said What do you need? and nobody asked for money. Its pretty incredible that they were able to respond like that, especially with short notice. Ten years later, that huge, comforting hug of Gander, Newfoundland, still warms the memories of the 6,600 passengers who descended without warning on the town of 10,000. Many of them have made deep friendships with the islanders who cared for them, and some will travel here for the 10th anniversary commemorations. Across a distance of 3,000 miles from the Pacific to Atlantic, Monica Burke has stayed in regular phone and email contact with Beulah Cooper, the woman who opened her home to her as the horror of 9/11 sank in. She visited her on the first anniversary, and is returning for the 10th. Cooper, now 70, keeps a large collection of thank-you letters from the many people she helped in different ways. Among those she comforted are Dennis and Hannah ORourke, an elderly couple whose New York firefighter son, Kevin, went missing at the World Trade Center. He died. The ORourkes have remained friends with Cooper and have been back to Gander, whose people Hannah ORourke feels eternally indebted to. They are so full of love and kindness and they cant do enough for you, she said. Ill never forget it. Beulah was a mother figure. Of the hundreds of flights blocked that day, more than 200 were diverted to Canada, with no warning, recalls David Collenette, transport minister. They shut down U.S. airspace, period, and we had to pick up the pieces. I dont fault them for that. It was an absolute tragedy, Collenette told The Associated Press. There was no request. We were informed that the United States had closed its airspace to all incoming traffic, all planes were grounded in the United States, and that any planes flying into the U.S. airspace would be shot down. Frankly, it was as brutal as that. He said despite intelligence reports about more airborne terrorists possibly approaching, he had to let the aircraft in, or else they might attempt unauthorized landings or crash into the Atlantic. As it was, we landed 33,000 people in a matter of a few hours. Norman Mineta, then U.S. transportation secretary, had a different recollection of the day. After I closed U.S. airspace, I realized that weve got these planes coming in from Europe and Asia and I then called David and I said Hey David, we need your help, Mineta said, asking Collenete if Canada could take the incoming planes. He put me on hold and within a minute or so he said, Well take them all, Mineta told the Associated Press in a telephone interview. The Canadians shunted the traffic away from Toronto and Montreal to the eastern seaboard, and obscure, little used Gander got to relive its glory days as a stopover point for trans-Atlantic aviation before longdistance flights became possible. Built in 1938 in anticipation of the coming world war, it had the worlds longest runway, and on 9/11 it was the second busiest, taking in 38 flights to Halifax, Nova Scotias 47. Flight crews quickly filled Ganders hotels, so passengers were taken to schools, fire stations, church halls.

Page A10 MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2011 A grand openingWith the last ice cream devoured and the last note played at the Back 2 School Bash, it is time to express our appreciation to all the sponsors who made the first season of Concerts at the Old Courthouse a grand success. When this new series of concerts began in January, it represented a risk. When a full house of over 160 came to the Jack Williams concert, the Citrus County Historical Society was very pleased. It happened again in March when Richard Smith and Julie Adams shared their prodigious talents. Perhaps the biggest gamble came in June. Floridas Gatorbone trio filled the rafters of the Old Courthouse. Concerts arose from a little folder at B&W Rexalls restaurant. The pamphlet noted how dollars spent locally circulate many times before leaving the Citrus County. A list of potential sponsors began with Ken and Tina Heimann at B&W Rexall. Then the Citrus County Chronicle added its support with display advertising. Neale and Charlie Brennan helped spread enthusiasm for this project. The Chronicle asserts that folks read local newspapers, and clogged phone lines asking for reservations were the proof. Ted and Judy Stauffer were quick to add their support to the project. Ted is the instigator behind the greatly successful Jazz at the Museum. Jan and Tom Metcalf, owners of Smith Optical Services, became sponsors. Then Wan and Mary Robinson from Edward Jones Financial Services joined the growing group. Charles and Maribel Richer became supporters. Richer was instrumental helping David Rom and State Farm Insurance to sponsorship. Charles E. Davis Funeral Home and Crematory became a sponsor as did Shane Bryant on behalf of Nick Nicholas Ford. Two other supporters made all the difference in the world. Donna DeHart at the Ice Cream Doctor in Inverness not only gave the new series her financial backing, but supplied ice cream for everyone at the Back 2 School Bash. Brad and Patty Gibbs, owners of Deco Caf in downtown Inverness, provided delightful refreshments all season long. Donna, Brad and Pattys willingness to make Concerts at the Old Courthouse a winner reflects a special kind of business wisdom. They and all the other sponsors for Concerts at the Old Courthouse recognize the synergy between cultural events and the success of their businesses. For all of us John Grannan of the Citrus County Historical Society, Kathy Turner-Thompson from county government, Frank DiGiovanni for the City of Inverness and to all those who volunteered their time and talents, we are grateful for your support and look forward to next seasons series.Jim Davis Hernando Concerts at the Old Courthouse Consistent coverage I note that all your obituaries for military veterans have an American flag symbol over their name. Alsosignificant is your coverage of military-related issues and events. A case in point is the Aug. 19 Associated Press story on Army Staff Sgt. Lanier and his family. On Aug. 20, there were two articles: Life Pirates LLC held a Support Our Troops night, and the Homosassa VFW andCitrus Countys Operation Welcome Home honored Army Spc. Maher. Also on Aug. 20, there was an excellent letter to the editor by Mr. Stewart of Operation Welcome Home. Along with the Chronicle Citrus County is proactive in recognizing our military veterans, past and present. I am pleased and proud to be anew resident of Crystal River and Citrus County, and to read the Chronicle daily. Thank you for caring. Gene Dahm Crystal River O n Aug. 26, the case went to the jury and the waiting began. Thats what you do in a civilized country. You take the crime to court and look for justice. It is a lofty word, isnt it? Suggests a balancing of scales, a putting right of wrongs, the righteous retribution of outraged society. Justice. Three years ago, a 14-year-old boy named Brandon McInerney walked into a classroom at E.O. Green Junior High in Oxnard, 60odd miles north of L.A. He sat behind 15year-old Lawrence Larry King, pulled out a .22 caliber revolver and shot King in the head. The teacher screamed. King slumped. McInerney according to testimony, made eye contact with a classmate. Then he shot Larry King again. Police found him a few blocks away, talking on his cellphone. Im sorry, I did it officer, he reportedly said. Larry King, who lived in a childrens shelter, stood not quite 5 feet tall. He identified as gay and wore high heels and other feminine accoutrements. This made him a target for bullies, McInerney among them, according to witnesses. But King gave as good as he got. He flirted with his tormenters, playing on the sexual insecurity that is common in straight men and more so in straight boys. McInerney was humiliated and outraged. The day before the shooting, King is said to have taunted him, saying, Baby, I love you. McInerney told anyone who would listen that he was going to kill King. Tell Larry goodbye because youre not going to see him again, one of Kings friends testified he said. McInerney lived in a bedroom in his fathers house containing Nazi memorabilia, including Hitler speeches and swastika drawings. His parents were divorced after a violent, tumultuous marriage. His mother was once arrested for drugs. The father was an alcoholic presiding over a home so dysfunctional that, according to one press report, he forbade his son to cry after punching him in the face. Prosecutors chose to try this troubled boy as an adult for firstdegree murder and a hate crime. It was a grotesque decision. You do not send a boy away for 50 years for a thing he did, no matter how heinous, before he was old enough to shave. His attorneys defended McInerney by painting King as a sexual predator and claiming their client panicked and snapped from the horror of being flirted with by a gay boy. It was a despicable strategy. Would anyone ask sympathy for an anti-Semite who panicked and snapped because a Jew said, Baby, I love you? On Thursday, the case ended in a mistrial after jurors were unable to decide between murder and voluntary manslaughter charges. But the detritus of this tragedy is beyond the power of any verdict to ever repair. Brandon McInerney will always be a ruined boy. School officials will always be wondering what they could have done to prevent this awful thing. Larry King will always be dead. And the rest of us will go back to grappling with the challenge that never ends: how to build a culture where its OK to be different, where standing out from the crowd is not an invitation to hatred and violence. This collision between junior high school boys brings into sharp focus our failure to do that. So instead, we do this: Go to court and look for justice. There is something quixotic about that. You see, there can be no justice here. It is far too late for that. Leonard Pitts is a columnist for the Miami Herald, 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, Fla., 33132.

A day for cookouts, boating, picnics, sales and, ironically, not going to work. However, it is important to not lose sight of the original reason for the holiday as a time to recognize and celebrate the contributions of labor to our economic development. But if you are among the millions of Americans out of work or barely holding on this Labor Day, a community salute to the valor of the working man is more likely to add insult to injury than give a person reason to fire up the grill and invite the neighbors over for steaks. A national holiday that is older than Mothers Day, Labor Day celebrations began in the 1880s in New York City as a means for labor unions to demonstrate the numbers, strength and spirit of the working men and women. Parades, rallies and demonstrations made the way for new laws to benefit workers, such as standardizing the 8-hour workday. The movement spread to other communities, and in 1894 Congress made it a national holiday honoring all American workers for their contributions to our countrys prosperity and strength. While it is appropriate to pay tribute to our vital work force on Labor Day, it should also be a time to reflect on the current state of uncertainty in our nations economy, its political steps and back-steps in efforts toward recovery, and the fact that most Americans are anxiously awaiting for Labor Day news they can truly celebrate. Unemployment remains stubbornly high, and many who are working are earning less than they once did. The lure and enticements of competitive enterprise have put the fight for the highest profit as a greater priority than the need for jobs in our own country. Critical support to help families through tragedies and misfortune has mutated into a dependency on assistance that has made some forget that work is important. Despite all these challenges, today should nonetheless be a day to celebrate work, including those who are working on finding work. American labor is still among the most productive in the world and without labors contributions to our economy we could not have achieved the high standard of living that we enjoy today.The challenge that is distinctly American is that this nation is still an assembly of people who persevere, who wont give up on finding ways to make their business prosper or who, when they are out of a job, continue to search for opportunity. As we give tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country, we must also remind ourselves as we celebrate this Labor Day, 2011, that finding our way back into economic prosperity might well be one of the hardest jobs we face.

The season hasnt even started yet and the NFL is starting with the TV blackouts if they dont get a sellout for a home game. We fans watched that joke of a lockout hoping against hope that the season would start on time, and our reward was the prospect of more blackouts. Im not sure if the powers-that-be of the NFL are aware of it, but in the Tampa Bay area we have an unemployment rate of almost 10 percent, which makes it tough to pay the mortgage, let alone afford to go to a game an exhibition game, at that. This whole scenario is confusing. The TV companies pay a pretty good dollar for the right to televise the games and then you turn around and decide not to televise unless the game is a sellout. That sounds like a win-win deal for the NFL or maybe the proper word should be greed. More conservativesI read with absolute delight the column today (Aug. 23) from Cal Thomas. It is such a spark to actually see something from a conservatives point of view as opposed to the constant repetitious Democrat playbook that we receive on a daily basis from your paper. Thank you so much for doing that.

Hospice expanding On behalf of HPH Hospice, I am pleased to announce the Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA) has approved our application to build a freestanding inpatient care facility in Citrus County. With the states approval, we will be able to proceed with our plans to build a $4 million permanent office and hospice care facility for Citrus County residents. In December 2010, HPH Hospice announced the purchase of 16.41 acres on (State Road) 44 in Lecanto and the intention to build. We presented our plans to the Economic Development Council (EDC) as well as the Citrus County Chronicles Editorial Board. The Chronicles Editorial Board called the facility a good fit and John Siefert, EDC executive director, said their plan fulfills the EDCs desire to see companies invest in the county. We, too, feel our hospice facility will be a good fit for the community. With only 16 permanently licensed hospice beds, and 10 temporary/leased hospice beds, to serve the approximately 2,400 people who died in Citrus County last year, we feel this facility will improve the quality of end-of-life care for our residents. To note, the state looks at licensed beds that are leased differently because those beds are a temporary solution to a permanent need and are at the mercy of the leaseholder with regard to longevity. HPH Hospice looks forward to initiating the permitting process as soon as the appeal phase ends and we receive AHCAs final approval. Between the land purchase, building and outfitting of the facility, HPH Hospice will have invested about $5 million in this community and will begin a new era in the care of people at lifes end. Tom Barb president and CEO HPH Hospice Encore, Encore My friends and I had the pleasure of seeing the Encore Ensemble presentation of My Big Fat Italian Funeral and The King is Back, starring Bill Elvis Lindsey. The dinner and play were greatly enjoyed and the cast playfully captivated everyones attention. The personalities of each individual performer shined through as they delivered the lines of their respective characters, never missing a beat and filled with the emotion of their characters. It was obvious this troupe enjoys what they do, and they pass that infectious enjoyment along to everyone in the room. The King is Back was a revue of Elvis favorites performed by Bill Lindsey. His performance was nothing less than Las Vegas caliber. Close your eyes, and it was Elvis back again. But you didnt want to blink for fear of missing a trademark movement, constant with the music. Fast, slow, in between every song performed in pure Elvis tradition, but also gave the audience a glimpse into Mr. Lindseys personality. We also had the pleasure of the comedy of Jersey Mike Shier, who kept us all laughing with his humor and the awesome singing voice of Mike Shier II. Individually, these gentlemen are five-star entertainers. Together, they create a show that leaves you wanting more. That, to me, is an unforgettable evening. To all involved in the Encore Ensemble, thank you for sharing your hard work and talent with all of us. To Jersey Mike, thank you for making us all laugh. Mr. Lindsey, thank you for an unforgettable performance (and the scarf). And Mike II, keep doing all you do because you are so good and thanks for the dance. Thank you all for bringing your combined talents to Citrus County. I am looking forward to the next Encore Ensemble presentation. Best of luck to all. Dolores Tinnen Homosassa No surprise The situation surrounding Miami athletics, especially football, comes as no surprise to college fans. Twenty or more years ago when I was on the sports desk of the Indianapolis Star, meetings on the football field were referred to locally as Catholics vs. Convicts. It would appear that Miami simply expanded its perks to its athletes if recent reports are correct, and who is to doubt them? SMUs transgressions earned it the NCAAs death penalty, but that pales in comparison to Miamis sins. A life sentence would seem to be appropriate. That could be a wake-up call to other athletic programs in general lets drop the designation of athlete students and get back to student athletes. W.L. (Bill) Pickett Crystal River Separation genesis Contrary to the Aug. 11 letter from Joe D. Gilbreath, the separation of church and state has always been the practice since the beginning of our nation. Mr. Gilbreath made a reference to two Bible quotes that prescribed tax rates (gift/contribution): 1 Kings 10:25 and 2 Chronicles 17:310. Both of these quotes mention people bringing presents to the king. Exodus 21:7 tells how a man can sell his daughter to be a servant; Exodus 35:2 states the Sabbath should be a day of rest and whoever doeth work therein shall be put to death; Leviticus 24:16 says the Lord told the entire congregation to stone a man to death for blaspheming and cursing a lot. Clearly, we do not live by these and many other admonitions that can be found in the Bible. The Bible is a sacred text, but it is not a document that can always be read literally. The Bible has to be interpreted to have an appropriate meaning for the times in which we live. While the words separation of church and state are not in the Constitution, the First Amendment states, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishing of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.... This means to me, and the courts, that church and state are separate. While Thomas Jefferson did not participate in writing the Constitution, he drafted the preamble to the Virginia State of Religious Freedom in 1777, which reads, in part, that to compel a man to furnish contributions of money (through taxation) for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves is sinful and tyrannical.... I agree with Thomas Jefferson. I do not want my money (through taxation) to be used to support a religion which I do not believe. Religion is a matter of the heart and the mind, and the support of it is voluntary. Separation of church and state is basic to the democracy of the United States of America. The Rev. Mary Louise DeWolf Crystal River A tax planWith all the activity on debt and deficit, other solutions might work. First, balance the budget; eliminate enough proposed spending to equal anticipated revenues. Also, add an ongoing balanced budget amendment. (Reminder, all budgets have to have a reasonable contingency line). Next, institute a small sales tax on all purchases, strictly for paying down the debt. This tax would apply to all purchases, giving all citizens an opportunity to help restore our financial stability. This fund would be restricted strictly to paying the debt. When the debt is paid, the sales tax would expire. This is critical to making it work. Typically, when government entities institute a tax it never dies, but this one would. The next and a very important part of the plan would be to stop the federal government from threatening business with financial ruin, so they can plan and expand. This way, economic activity can resume in a growth pattern solving many of our money problems. Of course, the fair tax would solve the problem sooner since it would be progressive and non-punitive. I suggest taking a serious look at one of these proposals to see if it can work to the benefit of all of us. Robert E. Hagaman Homosassa Financial plague The black plague disease, originally caused by fleas on rats and then transmitted by coughing, sneezing, touching, body fluids and infected air during the 14th century, killed approximately 75 million people, or about 50 percent of the population of Europe.The cure for this virus is mega doses of antibiotics. Is it possible in the 21st century the population of the world is facing a financial plague that already is affecting the totality of the 7 billion people now existing on earth? The basic causative factor of this modern plague appears tobe due to many financial factors related to the seeming inability of individuals and corporations of every variety, as well as local, county,state andespecially officials of the federal government to discipline themselves to balancebudgets. This dastardly disorder affects, in some fashion, the majority of the325 million U.S. citizens, andhas resulted in lossof homes, lossof jobs, loss of educational opportunities and deprivationin dozens of other ways. Is it possible our problem does not come from fleas off rats, but rather from individuals who seemingly disregard the need to plan long-term expenditures of income because instant gratification and greed overrides common financial sense? What is needed to straighten out the financial mess that our nation isin isjust a tiny bit of horse sensemath,which almost every horse on the myriad farms in Marion County can be taught. William C. Young Crystal River Reagans takeIn reference a recent article regarding placing the monument to the words of Jesus Christ, The 10 Commandants of the Lord: I am sick and tired of the ACLU tearing us about our Savior. Let the people alone and let them believe what they do. This antiAmerican ACLU needs to be placed on the antiAmerican subversive list along with the Council on Foreign Relations (and its subversive subunits), the Muslim Brotherhood, the Communist Party, the Fascist Party and the Nazi party. Along with that sentiment, I wish you would read and heed the following: I was pleased last year to proclaim 1983 the year of the Bible. But, you know, a group called the ACLU severely criticized me for doing that. Well, I wear their indictment like a badge of honor. Ronald Reagan, president. Well-meaning Americans in the name of freedom have taken freedom away. For the sake of religious tolerance, theyve forbidden religious tolerance, they forbidden religious practice.

Arriving Associated Press Dominique Strauss-Kahn, former head of the International Monetary Fund, and his wife Anne Sinclair gesture to the media upon their arrival in the courtyard of their home Sunday in Paris, France. Strauss-Kahn returns homePARIS Dominique Strauss-Kahn has returned home to France for the first time since a New York hotel maid accused him of attempted rape, unleashing a scandal that dashed his chances for the French presidency. New York prosecutors later dropped their case against Strauss-Kahn, who had been chief of the International Monetary Fund, because of questions about the maids credibility. Strauss-Kahn had been the pollsters favorite to win next years presidential elections in France before his May arrest. Few expect him to return to French politics soon, but his return to French soil has been widely awaited. Strauss-Kahn faces another investigation in France over attempted rape, based on accusations by a French novelist. US warns of small plane terror threatsWASHINGTON The FBI and Homeland Security have issued a nationwide warning about al-Qaida threats to small airplanes, just days before the anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks. Authorities say there is no specific or credible terrorist threat for the 10-year anniversary of the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks. But they have stepped up national security a precaution. According to a five-page law enforcement bulletin issued Friday, as recently as early this year, al-Qaida was considering ways to attack airplanes. The alert, issued ahead of the summers last busy travel weekend, said terrorists have considered renting private planes and loading them with explosives. The bulletin also says alQaida would like to use sympathetic Westerners to get flight training, then get them to become flight instructors. From wire reports World BRIEF Nation BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A12 MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressTOKYO Typhoon Talas dumped record amounts of rain Sunday in western and central Japan, killing at least 20 people and stranding thousands more as it turned towns into lakes, washed away cars and triggered mudslides that obliterated houses. At least 50 people were missing, local media reported. Evacuation orders and advisories were issued to 460,000 people in the region, which is hundreds of miles from the countrys tsunami-ravaged northeastern coast. At least 3,600 people were stranded by flooded rivers, landslides and collapsed bridges that were hampering rescue efforts, Kyodo News agency reported. Public broadcaster NHK showed a bridge swept away after intense rain caused a river to swell with brown torrents. People holding umbrellas waded through knee-deep water in city streets and residential areas. The typhoon dumped record amounts of rain in some areas, and more was expected. It was the countrys worst storm since one in 2004 that left 98 people either dead or missing, the Yomiurinewspaper said. By Sunday, Talas had been downgraded to a tropical storm. Ten people were killed and 32 were missing in Wakayama prefecture alone, police said. One landslide buried three homes; a woman was killed and four people were missing, but a 14-year-old girl was rescued from the debris. In nearby Nara prefecture, seven people were reported missing after their homes were swept down a river, NHK said. A 73-year-old man died in Nara when his house collapsed in a landslide, police said. The storm damaged Nijojo castle in the ancient city of Kyoto, tearing a large piece of plaster from the gate wall. The castle, a popular tourist destination, is designated an important cultural treasure. The center of the seasons 12th typhoon crossed the southern island of Shikoku and the central part of the main island of Honshu overnight Saturday.

Bulling its way into 2012, the tea party is shaping the race for the GOP presidential nomination as candidates parrot the movements language and promote its agenda while jostling to win its favor. Thats much to the delight of Democrats who are working to paint the tea party and eventual Republican nominee as extreme. The tea party isnt a diversion from mainstream Republican thought. It is within mainstream Republican thought, Mitt Romney told a New Hampshire newspaper recently, defending the activists hes done little to woo, until now. The former Massachusetts governor is starting to court them more aggressively as polls suggest hes being hurt by weak support within the movement, whose members generally favor rivals such as Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann. Romneys shift is the latest evidence of the big imprint the tea party is leaving on the race. Such overtures come with risks, given more Americans are cooling to the tea partys unyielding tactics and bare-bones vision of the federal government. After Washingtons debt showdown this summer, an Associated Press-GfK poll found 46 percent of adults had an unfavorable view of the tea party, compared with 36 percent just after last Novembers election. It could give President Barack Obama and his Democrats an opening should the Republican nominee be closely aligned with the tea party. Yet even as the public begins to sour on the movement, Romney and other GOP candidates are shrugging off past tea party disagreements to avoid upsetting activists. Candidates move to gain groups favor Mitt Romney Associated PressNEW ORLEANS, La. The center of Tropical Storm Lee made landfall Sunday on the Louisiana coast, bringing up to a foot of rain, spinoff tornadoes and fears of inland flash flooding to the Deep South and beyond. The vast, soggy storm system spent hours during the weekend hovering in the northernmost Gulf of Mexico. Its slow crawl to the north gave more time for its drenching rain bands to pelt a wide swath of vulnerable coastline, raising the flood threat. By Sunday, at least 6 to 10 inches of rain had fallen in some spots along the Louisiana and Mississippi coasts, and the National Weather Service warned there was a threat of extensive flooding and flash floods because of the storms slow, meandering jog inland. The rain bands were expected to head northward into the Tennessee Valley later in the week as forecasters warned that 10 to 15 inches of rain were possible along the central Gulf Coast and up to 20 inches in isolated spots. National Hurricane Center specialist Robbie Berg said the flash flood threat could be more severe as the rains moves from the flatter Gulf region north into the rugged Appalachians. Closer to the Gulf, the water is just going to sit there a couple of days, he said. Up in the Appalachians you get more threat of flash floods so thats very similar to some of the stuff we saw in Vermont. Vermont is still cleaning up and digging out dozens of communities that were damaged and isolated by heavy rain from Hurricane Irene last week that quickly overfilled mountain rivers. At midday Sunday, there were scattered tornado warnings for spinoff twisters from Lee. Lynn Burse, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Jackson, says the possible twister hit Lamar County, Miss., Sunday morning. No injuries or major damage was reported. Burse said drier air pivoting behind the system could increase the risk for tornados.

Associated PressPATERSON, N.J. President Barack Obama stood on a bridge overlooking the rain-swollen and fast-rushing Passaic River in New Jerseys third-largest city and said Sunday the federal government would work to rebuild towns recovering from Hurricane Irenes wrath. The Passaic, which had washed over the bridge, swept through the oncebooming factory town of 150,000, flooding the downtown area and forcing hundreds to evacuate. More than 100 people had to be rescued from the rising waters after the storm. You know, it could have been worse. But we should not underestimate the heartache thats going through a lot of these communities, affecting a lot of families, Obama said. In nearby Wayne, the president made his way down Fayette Avenue, walking past flooded homes, the garage doors open. Piles of waterdamaged debris littered the curb. Everybodys going to be working hard to help you recover, Obama told one woman as he hugged her. The Passaic crested at twice its flood stage at a record 14 feet, depositing debris and muddy water stains on buildings and homes across Paterson. The entire country is behind you, Obama said after viewing the destruction. We are going to make sure that we provide all the resources thats necessary in order to help these communities rebuild. He pledged to people all along the Atlantic Coast who were affected by Irene that he wont allow Washington politics to get in the way of bringing federal help.

At 5 p.m. Sunday, the storms center was about 365 miles northeast of the Northern Leeward Islands and moving northwest at 12 mph. It had sustained maximum winds that jumped up to 105 mph (165 kph) after wavering earlier in the morning between a tropical storm and weak hurricane status. Forecasters expect Katia to strengthen further and said it could be a major hurricane by Monday.

S PORTS Section B MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressNEW YORK Rafael Nadal rolled his head back, squeezed his eyes shut, covered his contorted face with his left arm and leaned awkwardly in the leather chair used by players during U.S. Open news conferences. Frozen by the leg cramps that simultaneously hit his right hamstring and thigh about two hours after hed won his third-round match, Nadal stopped taking reporters questions and paused between deep breaths to plead in Spanish, Can you call a trainer for me, please? Then slowly and scarily to those watching, because it was unclear at that moment to anyone but Nadal himself exactly what was wrong the defending champion slithered out of the chair and went down to the ground, hidden from view by a table. Within minutes, Nadal was sitting up, and then standing, after being given bags of ice to soothe his painful leg and bottles of water and Gatorade to drink. Even if it all amounted to nothing serious from a medical standpoint as Nadal and his manager would later insist, chuckling it was a bizarre scene, one at least as memorable as anything that took place on court Sunday at the years last Grand Slam tournament. Its bad luck it happened here, Nadal said, and not in the locker room. His point was that tennis players often deal with cramps, particularly after competing in the sort of conditions Nadal did while beating 2002 Wimbledon runner-up David Nalbandian 7-6 (5), 6-1, 7-5 on a muggy afternoon with the temperature in the 80s. Its just something that happens. Its just unfortunate it happened in front of you all, 2003 U.S. Open champion Andy Roddick told reporters after a straight-set victory over Julien Benneteau to get to the fourth round. Every single player in there has had that happen before. Every single one. What we do we run around, run miles and miles and miles and miles on the tennis court in nasty weather (and) you throw nerves in there. I mean, it happens. As long as it doesnt happen during a match, youre fine. Roddick continued: Cramps are fine. Its not an injury. A cramp is a cramp. When you go to bed and your foot cramps, its the same thing. With No. 28 John Isner and unseeded Donald Young also winning Sunday, and No. 8 Mardy Fish advancing Saturday, Roddick is part of the first quartet of American men to reach the U.S. Opens fourth round since 2003. Others moving on included 2008 runner-up Andy Murray, who beat No. 25 Feliciano Lopez 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 at night; Associated PressTAMPA Lee Roy Selmon, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hall of Fame defensive end who teamed with his brothers to create a dominant defensive front and led Oklahoma to backto-back national championships, died Sunday two days after being hospitalized for a stroke. He was 56. A statement released on behalf of his wife, Claybra Selmon, said he died at a Tampa hospital surrounded by family members. For all his accomplishments on and off the field, to us Lee Roy was the rock of our family. This has been a sudden and shocking event and we are devastated by this unexpected loss, the statement said. Selmon was hospitalized Friday, and the Buccaneers confirmed later that he suffered a stroke. The Glazer family, which owns the team, released a statement mourning him. Tampa Bay has lost another giant. This is an incredibly somber day for Buccaneer fans, Sooner fans, and all football fans. Lee Roys standing as the first Buc in the Hall of Fame surely distinguished him, but his stature off the field as the consummate gentleman put him in another stratosphere, the statement said. Selmon and his brother, Dewey, were both chosen as All-Americans in 1975 when the Sooners won their second straight championship under Barry Switzer. They followed older brother Lucious to Oklahoma, and the three played together during the 1973 season. News of Lee Roy Selmons stroke had already spurred tributes to Selmon on Saturday, when members of the University of South Floridas football team wore his number on their helmet. Selmon had served as the schools athletic director from 2001 to 2004. We all loved him, and were all deeply saddened, said USF President Judy Genshaft. Were a better university because of Lee Roy Selmon. He was an incredible role model, who cared about all of our stuS TEVE M C G UNNIGLE For the ChronicleA third-degree black belt. Four consecutive titles at the national level. An array of trophies, state championships, and medals (mostly gold) over the course of seven years of dedication to the sport of taekwondo. Potential future Olympian. Meet eleven-year-old Darby Lynn Dehn. Not the type of individual your mind fit to the description? Ms. Dehn is not your average eleven-year old girl, though her persona away from the dojo and the stage would show you no sign of such. Soft-spoken, polite, and perhaps a bit shy, it is a truly amazing thing to know what this young lady has accomplished in her short life. Most recently, Darby won her latest national championship at the Amateur Athletic Union Taekwondo competition in Austin, Texas, which immediately followed a second-place showing at the USA Taekwondo Junior Nationals in San Jose, California in July. This was a mere week after earning the third stripe on her black belt, and her father Raymonds telling of her last accomplishments spell her dedication. We headed off to San Jose, then hopped on a plane to Austin, Texas, Raymond said. Before the first fight of the day, she didnt get breakfast, we were almost late, but she wanted it. Darby went in there, won four fights, and won the gold medal. This victory on the national stage qualified Dehn to join the National Cadet Team, for boys and girls ages 10 to 13 years old. It is an early step toward the grandest stage of all the Olympic Games with other steps up the ranks along the way. Since then, the AAU Junior Olympics on August 1 in New Orleans were dominated by Dehn, who ran away with three gold medals one each for sparring, forms, and team forms. All the travel, red-eye flights, six-day weeks of training, and constant work have yet to tire Dehn of her dedication to taekwondo. In fact, shes been at it with no stopping since she was four years old. The defining moment came during a trip to the movies, when outside the theater in Inverness the younger Dehn implored her mother to let her peer into the window of Parks Taekwondo Academy. She has attended the same dojo ever since. Master Il Yeong Park has been her instructor from the beginning, and he received nothing but praise from Raymond, who also pointed out the many benefits his daughters craft has given. Her teacher says shes very worldly, Raymond said. Shes more mature than other kids her age. Shes been to so many states. And taekwondo, because of the respect they teach, its helped her in school. She gets honor roll grades, and she helps the other kids in her class. Modesty is another attribute that defines Dehn, as Raymond tells of her business-as-usual approach when it comes to tournament victories. She doesnt jump up and down after she wins, she quietly walks off with her medal, says Raymond. But privately to herself, I can see it, in her eyes. That look had to be at its most clear following a sparring win in Austin, as Dehn finally defeated a fellow Floridian who Raymond says had beaten Darby five or six times over the last six years in various tournaments. And while Darby sees all the good that comes out of her involvement in the sport, and is Nadal wins, then deals with painful leg cramps Aussies dominate Triathlon Chronicle Labor Day Triathlon wraps up season L ARRYB UGG Chronicle correspondentCRYSTAL RIVER It was a Gday for some triathletes from Down Under Saturday.

I am going to the pro circuit, Bailie said. The course is very quick. Im not used to the nondrafting on the bike. The weather was good. I took the lead coming out of transition. I will be doing the World Cup. Its nice to be in an English-speaking country. McShane didnt expect to do this well. I had a pretty hard weeks training, said McShane. I traveled over from Europe this week. My body was a bit tired. I did better than I expected. I am training at the AAA Triathlon in Clermont. Ryan Bailie and I decided to come along. I loved it (the course). The spectators were really good. It is a beautiful day. I have a lot of work to do. I have a race in Buffalo Springs in New York.

Even after three wins over the last 15 months, Bubba Watson still gets nervous going into the final round with a chance to win. At least he has some company at the Deutsche Bank Championship. A lot of company. Right when Watson looked as though he might pull away Sunday at the TPC Boston, the wind became strong enough to make him think twice about the shots he wanted to hit. Three of them didnt turn out real well and led to bogeys. He at least managed one more birdie for a 1-under 70 and the lead going into the last round. Watson was one shot ahead of five players. Another five players were two shots behind. Seven other players were three shots behind. And even Phil Mickelson, who started the round 11 shots behind, suddenly was only four back. Anybody has a chance, Watson said. Watson likes his chances just a little bit better. Despite the wind causing some indecision on the back nine, he still rifled a 3-iron into the fairway and a wedge to 8 feet for birdie on the 17th to get some separation, even it was just a single shot. Its always nice to be in the final group because then you know what everybody is doing. If you play slow enough, youll be two holes back, so when you know what you have to do, said Watson, one of golfs quickest players. Its a good position to be in. Thats where you want to be. Every week, thats what we try to do, is get in the final group because that means you have a great chance. Even so, the Labor Day finish figures to be wide open. Adam Scott (71) and Jason Day (67) were among five players in a tie for second. Luke Donald, the No. 1 player in the world, and Jim Furyk were in the large group just two shots behind. Mickelson even has a chance. He holed out a 7-iron from the rough on the 12th hole for eagle on his way to a 63, and wound up among two dozen players separated by four shots with 18 holes remaining.

Short-handed Miami cant wait to face Maryland Associated PressBALTIMORE In spite of everything the Miami football program has gone through this summer, the Hurricanes wont be bringing a woe-is-us attitude into Monday nights game against Maryland. Eight players were suspended, including quarterback Jacory Harris and standout linebacker Sean Spence, after an NCAA investigation revealed several team members took money from a booster. The Hurricanes will be decidedly short-handed in their first game under Al Golden and theyre OK with it. There hasnt been any complaining. There hasnt been any excuses. Theres been a next-man-in mentality, Golden said. I feel badly for the guys who cant play, but its an incredible opportunity for guys who maybe havent played as much, or are on the young side, to step up and make a statement on an incredible stage. The Atlantic Coast Conference matchup is expected to attract a sellout crowd and will be televised for a national audience. Not only will Golden be making his debut with Miami, but its also coach Randy Edsalls first game at Maryland. Best of all for the Hurricanes, its a chance to play football instead of talking about sanctions, suspensions and shame. Were looking very forward to this, running back Mike James said. I cant explain it to you. Weve been waiting for this time since they put the countdown clock in the locker room. I cant wait. Its an 8:02 kickoff, and Ill be ready to go. Its not as if Miami is suddenly scrambling. We had a little bit of foresight when this thing first happened that we might have to alter some plans and do some things, which gave us some time to start to think about, If this, then that, defensive coordinator Mark DOnofrio said. We started to get some guys reps early enough on, so I think its going to help us Monday night. The Hurricanes know all about playing without their first-string quarterback. Harris missed last years game against Maryland because of a concussion, and his backup, Stephen Morris, threw the game-winning touchdown pass in a 26-20 win. Morris will start this time, too. And Jordan Futch will serve as the replacement for Spence, considered by many to be the best player on the Miami defense. Seans an incredible talent, Futch said. Thats the hardest part, trying to fill his shoes. But Im going to try. Hes been coaching me up real good, getting me prepared for this game. Futch and the Miami defense will try to duplicate their performance last year against Terps quarterback Danny OBrien, who went 9 for 28 for 134 yards in his worst outing of the year. Hes going to come out and try to kick our behinds, Futch said. Hes going to be fired up. Hes going to be ready to go. OBrien is eager to go, but his motivation has nothing to do with last years loss. Its going to be a great atmosphere, the sophomore quarterback said. Its a huge opportunity for us to start the year off on a positive note. Not only winning the first game, which is always important, but it being a conference game and getting a leg up in the ACC, that would be huge for us, too. There is an aura of mystery surrounding both schools. Golden is trying to rebuild a team that has not performed to its usual lofty standards in recent years. Edsall, the successor to Ralph Friedgen, is attempting to take Maryland to a higher plateau. Weve got it where we want it. The kids know what we want to do and how we want to do it, Edsall said. I have tremendous confidence that they can go out and do the job. Edsall can sympathize with Golden, whose rebuilding effort has encountered many more obstacles. Its unfortunate when you see that happen to a colleague, Edsall said. Its not self-inflicted, so its a tough situation. All you can do in a situation like that is play the cards youre dealt. Associated Press Boise State running back Doug Martin (22) tries out the weathered helmet, which is part of the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic trophy, as coach Chris Petersen, left, addresses the crowd and Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore (11) joins them after their 35-21 NCAA football game win over Georgia on Saturday, at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. Let the Boise debates begin Associated PressThe first college football Saturday of the year was not even a day old and Boise State had already ensured that yet another season would be dominated by bickering about the Broncos. Championship contender? Or pretender? Here we go again. The latest statement by coach Chris Petersens team had to feel extra special to Broncos fans. No matter how many times Boise State knocks off big name teams from elite conferences, some fans dismiss the accomplishment because the Broncos play so few games against topflight opponents. Southeastern Conference fans have been particularly adamant about putting Boise State at the kiddie table. It is an indisputable fact that Boise State, even now that it has switched from the Western Athletic Conference to the Mountain West, does not play a schedule with as many potential pitfalls as most teams in the SEC, Big Ten, Pac-12 and maybe even the watereddown Big 12. Mississippi State of the SEC, for example, has a schedule featuring six teams that started the season ranked. Georgia is one of two teams on Boise States schedule that were in the preseason poll. Which is why so many looked at the Broncos playing the Bulldogs 70 miles away from their Athens, Ga., campus as Boise States toughest test of the season. But its getting harder and harder to argue this Boise State program is not one of the very best in the country. This is the third straight season impeccable quarterback Kellen Moore and the Broncos have started by beating a ranked team. Georgia joined Oregon and Virginia Tech as Broncos conquests. I love playing early in the season in games like this. It sets the tone for the rest of the season. Its a taste of what a big bowl game can be like with this type of atmosphere, Boise State Byron Hout told the Idaho Statesmen. If you can do the right thing you can find yourself in another event like this at the end of the season. If it were only so simple for Broncos. Where do they go from here? Well, it seems the move to the MWC will only bump up Boises degree of difficulty a bit this season. The next time well see the Broncos will be in Toledo, playing an above average Mid-American Conference team. Boise State then returns to the blue turf to face Tulsa, which opened the season with a 47-14 loss to No. 1 Oklahoma, and Nevada. The Wolf Pack handed Boise State its only loss last season, but that was on the road and quarterback Colin Kaepernick is no longer galloping around defenses in Reno. The last nonconference game is against another old WAC rival, Fresno State, which has been playing nail to Boise States hammer for years now. The Broncos have won nine of 10. In the MWC, TCU was supposed to be Boise States toughest test and could still turn out to be. But the Horned Frogs started their season with a 50-48 loss at Baylor on Friday night and their Nov. 12 game will be in Boise. Boise State is 59-2 at Bronco Stadium since 1999, so good luck with that Frogs. Fact is, the Broncos might have already peaked and thats what ticks off Boise State supporters. Theyll be favored often huge favorites in their remaining 11 games. Their lopsided victories will be greeted with a shrug by most poll voters and those big margins dont even register in the BCS computer rankings, which are programmed more to pay lip service to sportsmanship more than to determine the best teams. What Boise State needs to reach the BCS title game in addition to going unbeaten is for Georgia to right itself and reach the SEC title game, TCU to avoid another loss and maybe for Nevada, Fresno State or Air Force to pull off an upset or two just not against the Broncos. Meanwhile, the debate will rage. And thanks to a postseason system that allows only two teams to play for the national championship, its unlikely anything will get resolved. BIGGER, YES. BETTER?: Forget Texas and Oklahoma. A few more weekends like this and Pac12 Commissioner Larry Scott might be putting in calls to the Packers and Patriots to see if theyd like to join his conference. In addition to the 40-27 thumping two-time defending league champion Oregon took in Dallas to LSU, Oregon State lost 29-28 in OT to FCS member Sacramento State; Washington barely beat Eastern Washington; UCLA lost 38-34 at Houston; Hawaii beat Colorado 34-17; and Southern California squeaked by Minnesota 19-17. Not a great start As for the possible looming demise of the Big 12 if the Sooners and Longhorns decide to leave for the Pac12, a big question seems to be whether the Longhorn Network would preclude Texas from going West. Texas wanting its own cable network was a deal breaker when university officials and Scott were working to create a 16-team super conference last year. Blogger and attorney Kristi Dosh, aka SportsBizMiss of businessofcollegesports.com, analyzed Texas contract with ESPN and came to the conclusion that theres nothing in it that cant be worked out if the Longhorns and Pac-12 want to get hitched. NOT SO STUNNING: Yet another team with no tradition or pedigree entered the hallowed grounds of Notre Dame Stadium and beat the Fighting Irish. Just toss the South Florida loss on the pile with recent losses to Tulsa, Connecticut, Navy and Syracuse. But before Irish fans go into full blown panic mode about that storm-delayed 2320 defeat, its worth stressing this: Notre Dame outgained USF 508-254.

The Bears announced the move on Sunday, a day after he was released by New England. Meriweather was a first-round pick with 244 total tackles and 12 interceptions over four seasons. In 2009, he had a career-high five interceptions and made the first of two straight Pro Bowls. He joins a team that won the NFC North at 11-5 last season and made the conference title game with a defense that ranked ninth overall but just 20th against the pass. The Bears rely heavily on takeaways and Meriweather should help in that area, considering his 12 interceptions the past three years is tied for fourth among NFL safeties. Chris Harris and Major Wright have been starting at safety for Chicago and neither had a takeaway during the preseason. Backups Craig Steltz (hip) and Chris Conte (concussion) left the final preseason game on Thursday with injuries. Meriweather is known to freelance at times, but he has that history of making plays. He has also been involved in some controversy in the past. In October 2006 while still at Miami, he was part of an on-field fight with several Florida International players. About three months earlier, he fired a gun at an assailant who had shot Miami backup safety Willie Cooper outside the house Cooper shared with Meriweather.Man found dead in pool of Texans playerRICHMOND, Texas A man has been found dead at the bottom of the swimming pool at the home of Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith. Fort Bend County sheriffs spokesman Bob Haenel (HAYnuhl) says the suspected drowning was reported about 9:30 a.m. Sunday at Smiths home just north of the Houston suburb of Richmond. He says foul play is not suspected, but an autopsy has been ordered. Haenel said the dead man was reportedly a 37-year-old family friend of Smiths from the nearby suburb of Katy, and Smith had hosted a birthday party Saturday night. The 6-foot-4, 295-pound Smith is about to start his eighth season, and third with the Texans. Hes started 31 of 32 games for Houston since signing with the team as a free agent before the 2009 season. Smith was originally a fifth-round pick by Arizona in the 2004 draft out of Oklahoma State. We are aware of the situation, Texans general manager Rick Smith said in a statement Sunday. We are gathering facts and have no further comment at this time.

Mets (Capuano 10-11) at Florida (Vazquez 8-11), 7:10 p.m. Mets 6, Nationals 3 WASHINGTON Willie Harris knows Livan Hernandez well, as both a teammate and an opponent. He did not want to face his friend in the sixth inning. Harris has never had a hit in 13 atbats against Hernandez, and though the Mets were rallying, he was happy to see him leave. On Todd Coffeys first pitch, Harris punched a sharp single over first base to score two runs to lead New York to a 6-3 win over the Nationals on Sunday. The pinch-hit single highlighted a four-run sixth inning, spoiling what was likely Hernandezs final game with Washington. I wasnt looking forward to facing him today, knowing those numbers, Harris said. But, you know, its the most comfortable 0 for 13 that Ive ever had. Hernandez, who started the Nationals home opener in 2005, made his final start of this season, and though hes indicated a willingness to return as a reliever, the team hasnt indicated that it would want him back. Knowing that Hernandezs career here is probably over, the fans gave Hernandez (8-13) a warm ovation as he walked in from the bullpen.

A,976 (40,963). Brewers 4, Astros 0HOUSTON Shaun Marcum allowed his only hit with one out in the sixth inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Houston Astros 4-0 Sunday for a three-game series sweep. Ryan Braun homered among his three hits and drove in two runs for Milwaukee. Marcum (12-5) pitched seven stellar innings, allowing a single to center field to Jordan Schafer and two other base runners. He struck out eight and walked one. Marcum has not allowed an earned run in his last two starts, a span of 14 innings and hes allowed four earned runs in his last five starts. After Schafers hit, Marcum retired the next five batters to complete his day. Francisco Rodriguez and Takashi Saito each allowed a hit in one inning of relief to finish the three-hitter. Matt Downs reached on Yaniesky Batancourts throwing error to first base in the second inning. Schafer walked with two outs in the third for the only other baserunners off Marcum. Marcum struck out Jimmy Paredes to end the third and then retired the next seven batters in a row. Marlins 5, Phillies 4, (14) MIAMI The Philadelphia Phillies endured nearly five hours of bizarre baseball Sunday, lost on four walks in the 14th inning and then lobbied to play the game over. The Florida Marlins benefited from an overturned ruling after a video review in the sixth inning, and Mike Cameron walked with two outs and the bases loaded in the 14th for a 5-4 win. The Phillies Hunter Pence was ruled out on fan interference after initially being awarded a double, and the ruling change may have cost the Phillies two runs. They played the game under protest. It was weird, thats for sure, said Phillies ace Roy Halladay, who pitched six innings. You hate to see it happen like that.

Hellickson threw a four-hitter, Reid Brignac had three RBIs and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 81 on Sunday. He had a sneaky fastball that set everything else up, Rays manager Joe Maddon said. When he wanted to throw the ball somewhere, it was going there. Hellickson (12-10) has two complete games this season, both against the Orioles. The rookie right-hander also tossed a four-hitter in a 3-0 win against Baltimore on May 13. I felt good in command of all my pitches, Hellickson said. Even the curveball felt good. I was throwing that for a strike once in a while, and I was keeping the ball down. Tampa Bay scored four times with two out in the third to take a 6-0 lead. Evan Longoria came home when third baseman Mark Reynolds misplayed Brandon Guyers grounder, and Brignac followed with a three-run double. I havent had too many opportunities of late to drive in some runs, Brignac said. The way Jeremy was throwing, all we needed was a few runs to get through the game. Brignac had driven in two runs in previous 41 home games this year. Adam Jones homered for the Orioles. Jeremy Guthrie gave up seven runs three earned and seven hits over five innings en route to his major league-leading 17th loss. Yankees 9, Blue Jays 3NEW YORK Derek Jeter tied a career high with five RBIs, CC Sabathia earned his 19th win and the New York Yankees polished off a threegame sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays with a 9-3 victory Sunday. Jeter, Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher all homered for the AL East leaders, while Sabathia struck out 10 in 7 1-3 innings to win his seventh consecutive start against Toronto. One big reason for that success: Sabathia has dominated his matchups with slugger Jose Bautista. The major league home run leader is 0 for 18 with eight strikeouts against the big lefty after going hitless in three tries Sunday. Bautista did hit a colossal homer off Rafael Soriano in the eighth, cutting it to 5-3 and joining Carlos Delgado (1999, 2000) as the only Blue Jays to sock 40 home runs in successive seasons. Soriano avoided further damage and New York tacked on four runs in the eighth against Torontos bullpen.

DBacks 4, Giants 1 SAN FRANCISCO Kirk Gibsons club trailed by one run when slugger Justin Upton got tossed for arguing. Gibson sensed some frustration in the dugout. So, the no-nonsense Arizona manager provided a quick, midgame message: Keep our composure and were going to win the game. These Diamondbacks might win a lot more than that. With each grind-itout victory, they move closer to the NL West crown nobody on the outside envisioned for this bunch back in spring training. Willie Bloomquist hit a go-ahead two-run triple after Ryan Roberts solo homer tied it in the eighth, and the division-leading D-backs extended their cushion to a season-best seven games with a 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants on Sunday. Its a good feeling, Im not going to lie to you. These guys feel good about themselves, and they should, Gibson said. Theres no comfort, I dont care how many games were up, until weve secured our spot in the playoffs. Its not a scary thing. We know that we have to continue to not take things for granted. The Diamondbacks finally delivered for Daniel Hudson (15-9) when they got to All-Star Ryan Vogelsong in the eighth. Until then, Cody Ross first-inning home run had held up.

When Prado saw a changeup to his liking, he hit it hard. I was just going to put the ball in play, he said. I was thinking any pitch I can drive, hit it solid. I saw it, I hit it. Prado singled in the winning run in the ninth inning and the Atlanta Braves snapped the Los Angeles Dodgers sixgame winning streak with a 4-3 victory on Sunday. The Braves avoided getting swept in a three-game series for the first time this season and gave themselves a good send-off for an eight-game road trip that begins Monday against NL East-leading Philadelphia. It was big for us not to go into Philly having lost three straight, third baseman Chipper Jones said. One of the biggest wins of the year, Ill tell you. Jose Costanza set up the win with a one-out single off Hawksworth (2-5). Costanza moved to second on a wild pitch and scored easily when Prados liner landed inside the left-field line. Rangers 11, Red Sox 4 BOSTON This time, Josh Hamilton and the Texas Rangers put up the big numbers in a strange season series of blowout games against the Boston Red Sox. Hamilton capped Texas seven-run sixth inning with a bases-loaded triple and Matt Harrison had a solid start, carrying the Rangers to an 11-4 win over the Red Sox on Sunday. Ian Kinsler homered, drove in three runs and made a stellar defensive play for the AL West-leading Rangers, who took two of three in a weekend series that continued the trend of lopsided scores between the teams. Youve got two teams that are potent offensively, Rangers manager Ron Washington said. But, once again, its about pitching. You go against teams like the Rangers, Red Sox and Yankees and you better bring your pitching or it can happen like it did today. The Rangers took the season series 6-4, outscoring the Red Sox 51-15 in games they won. Boston had a 4214 edge in its victories. There wasnt a game decided by less than four runs between the teams, and six times the winning team posted double figures in runs.

With their first pick, they went for value in DT Fairley, who will strengthen an interior line that was already a strength. The team jettisoned strongside linebacker Julian Peterson, so his replacement will either be holdover Bobby Carpenter or Durant, because fifth-round pick Hogue is considered a developmental prospect at this point. The other OLB slot will likely be filled by free agent signees Tulloch or Durant. The Lions also went the free agent route to fill their cornerback opening with Wright. On offense, the additions of WR Young and RB LeShoure should give QB Matthew Stafford two more legitimate options in what is already a very formidable unit.

Williams (5) Offseason review: What do you get for the team that has everything? Well, if youre Aaron Rodgers and the Super Bowl champion Packers, the answer is depth. An already formidable offensive line added Sherrod with the first-round pick, who is slated to replace starting LT Chad Clifton when his contract expires in 2012. At wide receiver, Cobbs selection at No. 2 was a surprise to some, until you consider Donald Drivers age (37). Green, selected in the third round, replaces RB Brandon Jackson, now in Cleveland, but guard could be an issue since the departed Colledges possible replacements, Nick McDonald and Marshall Newhouse, arent ready. And the selection of TE Williams in the fifth round gives the team depth behind starter Jermichael Finley. Week 1 NEW ORLEANS Sept. 8, 8:30 p.m. (NBC) (Thu.)

Johnson, LB Patrick Trahan, RB Marion Barber, DT Amobi Okoye, P Adam Podlesh, TE Matt Spaeth, C Chris Spencer Departures: DT Tommie Harris, LB Hunter Hillenmeyer, OT Kevin Shaffer, WR Devin Aromashodu, WR Rashied Davis, S Danieal Manning, TE Greg Olsen Key Draft Picks: OT Gabe Carimi (1), DT Stephen Paea (2), S Chris Conte (3), QB Nathan Enderle (5) Offseason review: For a team that won its division, the Bears came into the offseason with a surprising amount of needs, among them the offensive and defensive lines and the receiver corps. The Bears had one of the NFLs worst O-lines last year, giving up a league worst 56 sacks. So the arrival of first-round pick Carimi will certainly be a sight for QB Jay Cutlers sore eyes and body. Still, the team has more needs there, so look for them to make a run at re-signing C Olin Kreutz, while going the free agency route to fill both guard positions. The defensive line is a little thin, so second-rounder Paea may find himself starting right out of the gate. And the release of Hillenmeyer opens a left linebacker slot, for which sixth-rounder J.T.

The team went for value over need at No. 2 with the selection of TE Rudolph, who could wind up replacing starter Visanthe Shiancoe when his contract expires next year. But probably the teams biggest need, the offensive line, didnt get addressed until the sixth round, where C Brandon Fusco and OT DeMarcus Love may vie with free agent signee Johnson for starting jobs. On the defensive line, Ayodele will likely start at nose tackle if 39-year-old incumbent Pat Williams bolts. Rices departure was addressed by the signing of Jenkins, but the linebacker corps is still thin.

No. 5 David Ferrer, Roddicks next opponent; No. 12 Gilles Simon, who got past 2009 champion Juan Martin del Potro 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2, 7-6 (3); and unseeded Gilles Muller, who will face Nadal for a quarterfinal berth. Nadal wasnt the only player who appeared to be bothered by Sundays heat and humidity: No. 26 Flavia Pennetta of Italy felt as though she needed to throw up right out there on court during her 6-4, 7-6 (6) victory over No. 13 Peng Shuai of China. It was a bunch of things: the heat, the tension, said Pennetta, who knocked off three-time major champion Maria Sharapova in the third round. Its not normal, but it happens. Pennetta now plays Angelique Kerber of Germany, who defeated Monica Niculescu of Romania 6-4, 6-3. When a reporter began a question by asking Pennetta about beating Kerber when they played on clay at Bastad, Sweden, less than two months ago, Pennetta cut him off. This year? Really? I didnt know that, Pennetta said. I thought Id never played her. I swear to God. Fifth-seeded Sam Stosur, the 2010 French Open runner-up, isnt likely to forget her 6-2, 6-7 (15), 6-3 victory Sunday night over No. 25 Maria Kirilenko or at least the second-set tiebreaker. The 17-15 score made it the longest tiebreaker played by two women at any Grand Slam tournament, according to the WTA. Kirilenko won that set saving five match points in the process to force a third, and TV broadcaster John McEnroe declared of the tiebreaker: There, in a nutshell, is why this is such a great sport. In the quarterfinals, Stosur will play 2010 U.S. Open and Wimbledon finalist Vera Zvonareva or Sabine Lisicki. said. Its who the guys are, too. Theres a lot of talent there. Somebody is going to have to definitely go and take this tournament. Its not going to be given to them. The tournament became so wild over the final hour that Steele couldnt even find his name on the first two pages of the electronic leaderboard after a bogey on the 14th. He rolled in a long birdie putt up the ridge on the 16th, then hit 5-iron to 4 feet for eagle on the last hole for a 67 and was in a six-way tie for the lead. Thats nothing new for the TPC Boston. Six years ago, there was a five-way tie for the lead going into the final round in the Deutsche Bank Championship. Adding to the stakes this year is the FedEx Cup, with the winner assuring himself a spot among the top five at the Tour Championship when 30 players have a shot at the $10 million prize. Watson moved to 13 under after a short birdie on the 10th to build a two-shot lead. But he was wild to the left on the par-3 11th for bogey, and he had to scramble for bogey on the 12th after a poor tee shot. He reclaimed the lead with a birdie on the 17th. Watson was at 11-under 202 as he goes after his third win of the year, and by far the biggest of his career. The new long shot of these playoffs is Chez Reavie, who had a 68 and was one shot behind. Reavie started the season on a major medical exemption, meaning he had 13 events to earn $673,983 and keep his card. He missed his mark through June, then got into enough tournaments and did well enough to qualify for the playoffs. At No. 87 this week, he now has a good chance to get to the third playoff event. dent-athletes, no matter what sport. He built an incredible legacy and he will never be forgotten. Selmon followed his Hall of Fame college career with an equally impressive run in the NFL. He was the No. 1 pick in the 1976 draft the first ever selection by expansion Tampa Bay and suffered through a winless inaugural season before achieving success. In 1979, he won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award when he helped Tampa Bay make it to the NFC championship game. The Buccaneers also won the NFC Central title two years later. Selmon was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1995. Presented by brother Dewey, Lee Roy said it was his family background that was noteworthy and not his accomplishments on the field. People have said, Your parents must be proud of you, but Im more proud of them, he said. Selmon played a key role in the creation of the football program at South Florida, where he was the associate athletic director starting in 1993 and served as the AD from May 2001 until he stepped down in February 2004 because of health concerns. While accompanying the South Florida football team to a game against Oklahoma in 2002, Lee Roy Selmon said he was humbled that Switzer had called him his greatest player. I see myself as just having been a teammate with so many great players and coaches, he told The Associated Press. Im floored by such a generous compliment. Lee Roy Selmon was born Oct. 20, 1954, in Eufaula, Okla., to Jessie and Lucious Selmon Sr. and raised on a farm with eight siblings. The three whod go on to star for the Sooners could have ended up at Colorado, if not for a last-minute recruiting Larry Lacewell described in the book Wish Bone that the Sooners didnt decide to recruit Lucious Selmon until Barry Price switched his commitment from Oklahoma to Oklahoma State the day before signing day. Lacewell showed up at the Selmons house to find Colorado coach Eddie Crowder there. When he got his chance to talk to the family, he stayed at the house until the two younger brothers had fallen asleep and he had convinced the Selmon parents it was better for Lucious to play 100 miles away than 600. It ended up being a key day for the program. Oklahoma went 10-0-1 with all three Selmon brothers playing together in 1973, then won national title the next two seasons. Lee Roy Selmon won the Lombardi Award and the Outland Trophy in 1975. He ended his college career with 335 tackles, a school record for a linemen at the time, and 40 for a loss. He went on to record 78 sacks and earn six consecutive Pro Bowl selections during his nine-year career. He retired after the 1984 season. starting to grasp the weight of all her accomplishments as she gets older, she shows no hint of ceasing to enjoy it she truly is just in it for the fun. I like the competition, all the travelling, and seeing places, I think its really fun, Darby said, adding, and I have a lot of friends at my taekwondo school. Ultimately? I want to keep doing this until Im old enough to compete in the Olympics, and someday have my own taekwondo school, she says, with a tone that demands you to believe it will all happen. Kniss. I looked at the entry list and I saw a couple of guys who were here and I knew one of them was a pro. I knew it was going to be a heck of a race. I did good. I had a real good swim. I had a good run. I have the Ironman in Panama City in November. I was slower. I guess I was a minute slower. I am really happy about this. I have been consistent. I wanted to win my series. That was my real goal. Ive done that. I am an engineer at a power plant in Lakeland. Inverness resident Tim Wenger won his age group and the series age group. He finished 12th with a time of 1:06.32. Wenger runs for the Citrus High boys cross country team and is expected to be one of the countys top harriers. He ran all three triathlons to build up his heart and looks like he may have done well in the process. I am feeling good, he said. I went a lot faster on the bike. I think I have a stronger heart for cross country. It was a lot cooler than normal. Dunnellons Danny Stevens Jr. was ninth with a time of 1:05.14. Lecantos Robert Brockett won the 55-59 men age bracket with 3:33.49. He finished 33rd Saturday with a time of 1:10:07.9. Brockett was one of those triathletes who started the Crystal River triathlon years ago. There was a guy that finished second to me, Brockett said. He beat me at Twilight. He outran me. I put my best run today. I dont know if he was here. We have wonderful conditions. St. Petersburgs Jennifer Hutchison won both the womens masters race title and the series title. She ran a 1:10:42 Saturday. I have never won this before, she said. I have won the masters before. It was very cool. The conditions were nice. The bike had a nice tailwind. Overall, it was the perfect day for racing. The bike favors me. I am doing Long Course Worlds in Henderson, Nevada in November. I am a sports dietician and a triathlon coach. Homosassas Sam Nall, 68, won the 65-69 mens series title. He ran a 1:18.49 Saturday. Very nice run, said Nall. I did fine. All these old body parts held up. I think Chris (Moling, the race director) has a connection with the Supreme Being. Crystal River High teacher Laura Wingate had a great time just finishing the triathlon. She is a newcomer to the sport but said she is coming back for more. It was a physically cool day and the race director was happy with the entire event. Last race of the season, we had absolutely the best weather, the best everything, said race director Chris Moling. We had a great turnout today (305 registered). We had the best competition. We had some superfine athletes coming from Australia. They took overall male and female. We have world class athletes making their way to Crystal River. Unfortunately for Robert Kniss, he finished up fifth. He would have taken it otherwise. Its all great competition. I like seeing Tim Wenger, local cross country kid, comes out, tries his hand at triathlons. Jennifer Hutchison is a great finisher. It was a fantastic turnout and a beautiful day.

B6 M ONDAY, S EPTEMBER 5, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT J. Paul Getty said, If you look after the pennies, the dollars will look after themselves. Is the bridge equivalent that if you look after the spot-cards, the honors will look after themselves? This weeks deals require carefully watching the spot-cards. In todays example, how should South plan the play in three notrump after West leads the heart queen? South might have opened two clubs or two no-trump. The hand has 22 high-card points, but eight of them are in quacks (queens and jacks), which is not good. However, the hand contains only four losers, one in each suit. So it is acceptable to upgrade the hand to a two-club opening. South starts with six top tricks: one spade, one heart and four clubs. Declarer does not have time to play on diamonds, because he should lose at least one diamond and four hearts. Instead, he must hope that East has the spade king. Then South can pick up four spades to go with one heart and four clubs. But he might need to take the spade finesse three times. And if so, that requires three dummy entries, which must come from the club suit. Declarer should cash his club king before leading the club seven to dummys jack. In the dummy, South plays a spade to his queen. Then, since the clubs are 32, declarer overtakes his club queen with dummys ace and repeats the spade finesse. Now South leads his carefully preserved club two to dummys four, takes a third spade finesse, and claims.

Four years ago, he said he wanted to find himself. A month later, he was in Las Vegas (with another woman), using the company car and gas card. When he stopped answering his phone, I called his manager to find out where he was, and consequently, he was fired. He blamed me. I was so angry that I moved in with my sister, and he brought that woman to live in our house. Until that moment, I had no idea there was an ongoing affair. I still have not received any divorce papers, which he told me I was supposed to sign. How can I find out if he actually filed? Waiting in Los Angeles Dear Waiting : In most states, divorce filings are a matter of public record and can be accessed through your local county offices. Regardless, you should get a lawyer immediately. Your husband has not proved himself to be trustworthy, and its important that you protect yourself. Dear Anni e: Three months ago, my husband and I received an email invitation to a friends 70th birthday party, given by his adult children. A month later, another email arrived, informing us that each guest was expected to pay $25 for our meals at the restaurant, and that there also would be a money tree. I thought that was tacky, but we like this guy and still planned to go. Then, a week before the date, we received a third email, saying the price would now be $32 apiece. The son said hed be at the entrance to collect money, and for our convenience, there is an ATM nearby. Annie, if the hosts couldnt afford a restaurant, why didnt they simply have people at their home for coffee and cake? I called the son and told him we are senior citizens and on a fixed income. I said we were sorry, but could not afford to attend. Then, the son tried to put a guilt trip on me. I have never heard of anything so nervy! Theres a Yiddish word for it, but I dont know how to spell it. I hope we havent lost a friend. Now Ive Seen it All Dear Seen : The word you are looking for is chutzpah, and yes, the son seems to have a lot of it. Unfortunately, hes not alone. A lot of people think its OK to make the guests foot the bill for whatever event they decide to have. We do suggest, however, that you send the honoree a nice card and a small gift if you can afford it. We are certain it will be appreciated. Dear Annie : Concerned implies that if we dont call our parents daily or visit weekly, we are neglectful. Why do we owe it to our parents to call and visit? I dont owe my parents anything. If you want to see your children, go see them. If you want to talk to them, call. My in-laws complain that we never call or visit, but they call my husbands cellphone often, and visiting means we have to give up an entire day. I have two adult daughters, and I will never guilt them this way. They are under no obligation to keep me company just because I nurtured them. Disappointed Reader Dear Disappointed : Children DO owe the parents who loved, clothed, fed and educated them. At a minimum, they owe them respect and consideration. We agree that phone calls should not turn into power plays and the lines run both ways. But many people still believe in respect for ones elders, not to mention the commandment to honor ones parents. But we give you points for not being hypocritical about it. Annies Snippet for Labor Day (Credit Jonas Salk): The reward for work well done is the opportunity to do more.

Kennedy signed legislation making aircraft hijackings a federal crime. In 1975, President Gerald R. Ford escaped an attempt on his life by Lynette Squeaky Fromme, a disciple of Charles Manson, in Sacramento, Calif. Ten years ago: Mexican President Vicente Fox arrived at the White House as the first state visitor of the Bush presidency. Five years ago: Boeing executive Alan Mulally was named president and CEO of Ford Motor Co., succeeding Bill Ford, the great-grandson of founder Henry Ford. One year ago: Jefferson Thomas, one of nine black students to integrate a Little Rock high school in Americas first major battle over school segregation, died in Columbus, Ohio, at age 67.

Jack Kerouac, American novelist (1922-1969). MDA telethon hosts say Lewis retired D AVIDB AUDER AP Television WriterNEW YORK With Oprah Winfrey gone, daytime television is ready for a new monarch. Barbara Walters and the show she invented 15 years ago, The View, pronounce themselves ready to step up. She may be past 80 now, but would you bet against her? The show begins its new season Tuesday, with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as guest. In a muddled daytime picture, The View plans to compete aggressively for displaced Winfrey viewers with a more topical feel, aggressive booking of guests and a few pages ripped from Oprahs playbook. Oprah was the only other show that did some of the things that we did, said Bill Geddie, executive producer. Quite honestly, some of the people that we might have gotten second, well be getting first now. The View has just as much chance as any to become the daytime talk leader. Late afternoon, where Winfreys show ran across most of the country, is considered a more desired time slot than the 11 a.m. home of The View. But a big mixture of personalities like Dr. Phil, Ellen DeGeneres, Anderson Cooper and Dr. Oz will now compete in the afternoon, some of them new to their time slots or new to the business, and none goes in with a huge advantage in the ratings, said Bill Carroll, an expert in the daytime market for Katz Media. Meanwhile, The View is a fixture at its time of day. Consistency always works in your favor, Carroll said. Geddie noted no 11 a.m. show has ever been the top daytime talk program, and he seems eager for the challenge of changing that. The time slot was no real prize back in 1996. ABC had a string of failures there before asking Walters to come up with an idea for a show. She thought of presenting a handful of women with diverse backgrounds and opinions, primarily an entertainment show. Still busy at ABC News, Walters appeared only two days a week and asked Meredith Vieira to be moderator, a role now held by Whoopi Goldberg. Only 60 percent of ABC viewers could see the show at first, and Walters remembers spending much of her first year cajoling station managers across the country to carry it. Now The View is seen virtually everywhere on ABC. The View evolved to become more topical and opinionated as the years went on, a progression that is continuing. The Sept. 9 show will feature former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and focus on the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks. Former Vice President Dick Cheney and GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman are each scheduled to appear in the first month. Such guests co-exist with the popular hot topics opening segment, where Goldberg, Walters, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd kick around the days water-cooler subjects. Still, Walters cautioned, We are not Meet the Press. Not when Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are booked for Wednesday. Matthew Broderick, Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Alicia Keys are among other first-month guests. Behar and Shepherd will talk about what it was like for each of them to get married this summer, and the show plans to candidly follow Shepherds effort to have another child. We still do loving interviews, Walters said. Were not Bill OReilly. Fox News OReilly, whos had some memorable tangles with the ladies of The View, is also booked for the first month. Authors, actors, celebrities and so forth need a place to go, she said. And were a very good place to go. Were an intelligent show, we are a stable show, we like each other. ... Its a fun show, and I think they will feel all the more comfortable with us. Sound like a pitch? Walters has made a few in her day. Much of the energy she brought to finding big interview gets for ABC News is now focused on The View, where she usually appears three or four days a week. Firmly establishing the topical niche is a pre-emptive strike against CNNs Cooper, who premieres his show this fall, and Walters ABC colleague Katie Couric. Couric, who was a guest host on The View for a week this summer, begins her own daytime talk show next year. Geddie also talks about more frequently using panels of expert contributors doctors, lawyers and such to answer questions. That also sounds very Oprah-like, given the satellite system of contributors she developed through the years. The competitive approach also extends to cosmetics. Instead of slapping a fresh coat of paint on an old set, The View completed a sleek redesign. Gone is the uncomfortable couch where Walters joked some guests nearly toppled over and off the set. Weve always thought of ourself as the little engine that could, and now were practically the railroad, Geddie said. The landscape is changing, and its not just Oprah. The soap operas are going away. At ABC, we were always the third or fourth show behind the soaps and now were the No. 1 show. We felt that if we were a big show, we ought to look like it and act like it. Associated PressLAS VEGAS The hosts of the 46th annual Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon said Sunday that Jerry Lewis retired from the yearly fundraiser the organizations first comments about the beloved icons departure since an announcement last month. Lewis publicist Candi Cazau declined comment to The Associated Press when told of the comments to open the telethon on Sunday. Co-host Nigel Lythgoe said during his opening comments on the telethon that he didnt realize Lewis, 85, was thinking about retirement during the show last year, when the comedian offered Lythgoe his seat as Lewis took a break and Lythgoe was coming on the air. He made such a big point about it. Ive never done this before, he said, said Lythgoe, the executive producer of American Idol. I didnt realize then that he was contemplating retiring. And Jerry, and I know youre watching, when you gave me that chair I know its possible to sit on it, but its isnt possible, Jerry, to replace you, sir, he said. What you have done for this organization and its families is something close to a miracle and I know that we all want to carry on your legacy. Entertainment journalist Jann Carl followed Lythgoe by saying Lewis retired from the telethon this year. MDA spokesman Jim Brown declined comment beyond the hosts remarks, but said the telethon would include at least one more nod to Lewis. Lewis, whos appeared in scores of films and TV shows as well as produced, directed and taught film, had been chairman of the MDA since the early 1950s, before the famed telethon began. The Lewis-less telethon began airing live on the east coast Sunday night with an opening number featuring young dancers performing to David Guettas Titanium, with an introduction from Abbey Umali, the organizations tween goodwill ambassador. The MDA is asking millions of Americans during the six-hour broadcast for at least $1 more than the $58.9 million it raised last year. This years revamped fundraiser was expected to trot out as much A-list punch as it could muster as the charity works to raise money for neuromuscular research, clinics and summer camp for youngsters known as Jerrys Kids. E NTERTAINMENT Page B8 MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2011 D AYTIMECROWN? C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Birthday : Conditions in general look extremely promising for you in the year ahead, especially in areas where you have already been busy laying solid foundations. One or more could take you straight to the winners circle. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) In many situations, moneymaking tips given by insiders are of little or no value. However, when information comes from one who has made it big, take a second look. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Rather than engage in activities that involve a lot of mental gymnastics as you generally would, youre likely to find a lot of enjoyment in pursuits that are more on the physical side. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) This could turn out to be a rather good day for you where your material affairs are concerned. An investment you thought of as being a loss might suddenly turn a profit. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Something important that has been totally out of your hands is making its way back to you. Once it is within your grasp again, youll be able to control matters to your liking. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Lady Luck is opening up a new door of opportunity for you. You are likely to get a chance to participate in a development that is being run by another and that is doing quite well. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You will be entering into a new cycle in which big opportunities abound, stemming from partnership arrangements. Dont turn down any invitation to join a group that has a good chance of being successful. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Should you come up with a good idea regarding a new way to advance your ambitions and aspirations, move on it promptly, even if it is a shot in the dark. Its likely to succeed. Aries (March 21-April 19) If you want to end up having the upper hand when involved in a competitive situation, whether it involves a sport, game, romance or business, adopt a positive mindset. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Important changes can be made that could have some far-reaching effects. Dont hesitate to move things around a bit if you believe it would better your lot in life. Gemini (May 21-June 20) When you dont try to secondguess yourself, your judgment can be pretty good. When an on-the-spot call needs to be made, do so without hesitation. Cancer (June 21-July 22) An abundance of opportunities are all around you, both in your personal life and in work-related situations. Watch out for insignificant matters to suddenly become very important. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Ventures or enterprises you personally direct or have a hand in developing should live up to your expectations. Be extremely careful not to delegate too much authority.

Cowardly actThis is to the coward who keyed my car, which was parked on Wright Street: If you didnt like where it was parked, you could have left a note on the car or asked me and it would have been moved. But I hope you can sleep with yourself and look at yourself in the mirror because that was a very cowardly thing to do.Blighted building Regarding the comment on Aug. 27 in Sound Off about the Meadowcrest building and the costs: If (the) person had bothered to attend the lengthy presentation done by the county with pictures and complete details about the conditions at the building and the lack of space. And if youve ever been there, its not a parking lot, its a series of potholes. Its awful. There was one bathroom for that entire building and a leaky roof, as well. Plus the fact that the state, because of taking over the drivers licenses, told them that the security was unacceptable. So they really have no choice, not just because of that, but because of the deplo rable conditions of the building. They were just pitiful. Share sheriffs carsOn Aug. 16, Tight funds should lead to policy review. We had a police department quite a bit larger than all of Citrus County and we didnt take our cars home. What we did is, when an oncoming shift came in, they would double up with us for two hours and then we would turn the car over to them. At that time if the car was not clean, fueled or anything else, it was noted on the report. They do not need to take these cars home. They need to learn how to share them. You do not need an individual car for every officer. Thats a ridiculous spending of our money.Defense overfundedAll this talk concerning the military defense budget. The Pentagons budget has increased immensely during the past few decades and the Defense Department will spend every single dollar its given. Consider all the military pay grades, all civilians employed by the military, retirement benefits for life, two unnecessary 10year wars which were not funded, lifetime medical benefits for PTSD and those permanently disabled, plus all the troops unnecessarily stationed since World War II in Germany, France, England, Japan, Korea and the Philippines, to include military housing and American schools. We could slash the Pentagon budget in half with all these troops which are not needed in peaceful foreign countries. The costs to maintain these bases and facilities is incredible. End the two unnecessary, unfunded wars and half the problem is solved.Testing is too farThe one that called in Sunday (Aug. 28) in Sounding Off about Nothing to hide, about drug testing, urine testing. I had to take a urine test two months in a row and I did it because I knew I was OK with it, but I still have a problem doing it. I dont like doing it. I think its an invasion of my privacy and I had nothing to hide, neither. But I still think it isnt right, especially when our government officials dont have to do it and our doctors and nurses dont have to do it regular. I think its ridiculous that other people have to do it. Those are people who count. Even the police department should have to do it regularly, and the fire department. But everybody (who) lives off our tax dollars gets away with murder and makes the most money and everything else and have the best benefits. But anyhow, the urine testing, I take it but Im still against it. So there is nothing to hide, but Im still against it.Summer fan setting On Aug. 28 someone called in to Sound Off and asked which direction they should have their ceiling fans. In the summertime, your ceiling fan should go counterclockwise. This has been checked out with the power companies and the fan companies. Counterclockwise in the summer.Smart safetyIm reading in todays paper about the prop shrouds on boats to protect the manatees. I, too, have wondered why we havent instructed our boat owners to do the same thing. Even if they were to raise the lower end so the skeg on the motor was above or below the prop to prevent the manatees from getting hurt. Its about time we did some of these smart things.Civic need I sure hope the Beverly Hills Civic Association does not go bankrupt as did the Rec Association. We need the Civic Association to help enforce our deed restrictions. This helps keep our property values up and helps keeps Beverly Hills from becoming a slum area. Its worth the membership fee to join this organization. We need their representation and you should attend the meetings if you possibly can. Defining churchThis call is in reference to In defense of Nancy. This is in defense of Scripture. The person (who) called in said, Do this in remembrance of me, but they skipped the first part of the Scripture that says, This is my body, this is my blood, do this in remembrance of me. As far as Nancy, she has the right to choose what she wants as far as churches. But I also dont understand the part that says, Besides, church is a body of people, not a building. I dont quite understand that, if someone would explain that to me.Anti-corruption lawsAccording to a recent report, an activist in India went on a hunger strike in his campaign against the corruption by public officials and bureaucrats. In this once-grand nation, we may now need to have very strict laws that actually have extended prison time as a penalty for any politician who is found to be corrupt in a court not run by his or her partners in crime.Unexpected rain Hey, yeah, Ive heard of umbrellas, but I didnt know my kids were going to need one the first week of school. Nobody told me. So evidently both my kids got soaking wet and theyre not afraid of water, but when theyre soaking wet and they walk into a 70-degree classroom and now Im taking both of them to the doctor. And can you picture 3,000 kids walking around the high school all with umbrellas, all teenagers with umbrellas? What do you think theyre going to do with them? Cover the school up because Ive already got two doctor bills.Craving chicken What I think would really be a good idea is to put a Chick-fil-A in the mall since were trying to regroup over there. I think that would bring in a lot of customers. I really dont know anyone who doesnt like Chick-fil-A.Loud noises This is regarding the plans for a new firing range. I live two miles from the firing range the police use on (State Road) 44 at the landfill. Especially on the weekends, it sounds like we are in a war zone with machinegun fire. It is very disturbing. Anyone in the vicinity of this proposed firing range near Rock Crusher Road should be aware sounds travel long distances and this could be a nuisance to you also.Halve political ranks Food for thought: Now theres a proposal to tax bottled water to pay for the cost to manage empty bottles. Lets join other states and have a deposit bottle bill. The extension of the Suncoast Parkway will create short-term jobs and leave a lifelong-term scar across Citrus County. Want to give your brain a rest from politics? Just commit to vote for Ron Paul for president. If we really want to save taxpayers money, we need to reduce the number of politicians we have. Citrus County needs only three commissioners. Cut in half representatives, congressmen and senators. Come on, voters, sound off.Whos doing study? I read the Opinion page Monday, Aug. 29. I am puzzled as to who is doing the feasibility study. And is the feasibility study only for the port or other proposed county projects on the barge canal? I would like to see a feasibility study on the barge canal of good, clean industry such as a marina, high-end hotels and motels and restaurants. Seeing as in your paper lately of Kings Bay and the manatees being closed to large boats, to me I feel this could put more people to work, seeing that I dont think there is that many barge pilots and large crane operators in Citrus County that are out of work. Im sure we have plenty of truck drivers. Thats all Im saying.O PINION C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, S EPTEMBER 5, 2011 B9 Classifieds Classifieds Classifieds In Print and Online All The Time!

B12 M ONDAY S EPTEMBER 5, 2011 C LASSIFIEDS C ITRUS C OUNTY ( FL ) C HRONICLE 473-0905 MCRN PUBLIC NOTICE STATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue a renewal permit (FL0000159) for Progress Energy Florida, Inc. (PEF) to operate wastewater treatment and effluent disposal facilities for the PEF Crystal River Power Plant Units 1, 2 and 3 located at 15760 West Power Line Street, Crystal River, Citrus County. Power generation units at the facility consist of three steam electric units. Units 1 and 2 are fossil fuel plants, and Unit 3 is nuclear fueled. However, Unit 3 is currently not operational due to structural repairs, which are anticipated to be completed in 2014. Wastewater from the facility consists of non-contact, once-through condenser cooling water (OTCW), intake screen wash water, treated coal pile runoff, plant area storm water runoff and other waste streams from plant operations. Wastewater and storm water is discharged to the Gulf of Mexico, a Class II Marine Water. The applicant has requested a continuation of the facilitys thermal variance under Section 316(a) of the Clean Water Act which was granted by the Department at the time of issuance of the applicants current permit. The Department has determined that the continuation of the 316(a) variance is appropriate and intents to renew the 316(a) thermal variance with the issuance of the renewal permit. An Administrative Order (AO) will be issued with the permit requiring PEF to evaluate OTCW system effects on aquatic organisms. The draft AO accompanies the draft permit. The intent to issue and application file are available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Department of Environmental Protection, Industrial Wastewater Section, 2600 Blair Stone Road, Tallahassee, FL 32399-2400, telephone (850) 245-8589. A copy of the intent to issue is also available for review at the Departments Southwest District office located at 13051 N. Telecom Parkway, Temple Terrace, FL 33637. The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Departments proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request enlargement of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, any person who has asked the Department for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that persons right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Departments action is based must contain the following information: (a) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioners representative, if any; the Department permit identification number and the county in which the subject matter or activity is located; (b) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the Department action; (c) A statement of how each petitioners substantial interests are affected by the Department action; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Department action; (f) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules and statutes which entitle the petitioner to relief; and (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that the petitioner wants the Department to take. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Departments final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, is not available for this proceeding. September 5, 2011. Misc. Notices Misc. Notices Misc.
