PAGE A4 TODAY & Wednesday morning Police: Student-athlete stabbed to death by friend Associated PressTALLAHASSEE It was too late for Florida A&M womens basketball player Shannon Washington, but the universitys president hopes that some good can come from a weekend tragedy at the school. FAMU President James Ammons said the 20-yearold Washingtons death could serve as a teachable moment for people to be cautious about choosing friends. Get connected to the right people, Ammons told a packed auditorium at an hourlong Sunday night vigil in Washingtons memory. As you live your life, circle yourself with people with good character. Only hours earlier, Washington was stabbed to death by a friend who was spending the weekend with her. Police spokesman Derek Friend said Monday that 20year-old Starquineshia Palmer from Bradenton remained at the Leon County Jail after being charged with first-degree murder after an early morning altercation. Washington died from stab wounds she suffered from a kitchen knife in the neck and back, authorities said. Members of both the Rattler and Florida State womens teams attended a Sunday night vigil on the Florida A&M campus in honor of the slain player from Sarasota who had just transferred from Illinois Valley Community College, where she had averaged 19 points a game last season. For Shannon to be killed in the prime of her life is tragic and senseless, Ammons said. She had so much promise. This is a great loss for the university and our athletic program. Recruited as a shooting guard, Washington was considered to be one of the best players to join the Rattler program in recent years. C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterWhile attending one fire on Sunday in Crystal River, firefighters noticed a nearby property also aflame. County firefighters, assisted by Crystal River Volunteer Fire Department, responded at 10:26 p.m. Sunday to a residential structure fire of a singlewide mobile home at 6385 W. Avocado St. in Crystal River, owned by George A. Bishop Jr. of Inverness. The caller reported that flames were visible up the side of the mobile home. According to the firefighters report, the mobile home had no occupants. The fire was quickly controlled, with no injuries reported, but the damage estimate was reported as a total loss, with a dollar estimate of $9,300 for the structure. Emergency crews on the scene then noticed flames through the While dousing the flames on Sunday night at this mobile home at 6385 W. Avocado St., Crystal River, firefighters also saw a fire erupting from a mobile home on the next street to the north. CHRIS VAN ORMER /Chronicle Neighboring mobile homes catch fire No one injured; blazes under investigation See FIRES / Page A2 S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterLECANTO Barbara Harmon and Joe Melito both agree the elderly should never have to go without food or suffer in the heat or cold because they cant afford their electricity bill. But through the efforts of Citizens Accelerated Response to Emergencies (CARE), Harmon said they are making sure senior citizens dont have to be left in harms way. CARE was officially up and running in May. Its aim is to provide one-time, immediate assistance to people over the age of 60 who need food, medicine or help with preventing their utilities from being cut off so they dont suffer. Harmon said she became aware of the need for such a service through working as a volunteer with Seniors vs. Crime. She, Melito, Tom Gotterup, Joan R einhart, Anne Palmer, Mary Gotterup and Don Moran proposed the idea for CARE to the Citrus County Senior Foundation and the senior foundation agreed to provide funds for the assistance. Other expenses such as the bill for the phone are out of pocket. The program is designed so referrals must come from a law enforcement agency or the Department of Children & Families. The community cant call us, Harmon said. Deputies must be responding to a call for service and come across a situation where a senior resident doesnthave the ability to provide for their own safety. For example, Harmon said if a deputy was responding to a domestic battery call and found an elderly woman was living in her home with no food, the deputy would call CARE and a CARE member would gather contact information for the person in MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Citrus County Mountain Bike Club member Scott Reinhard, 22, zips down the Whispering Pines Mountain Bike Trail in Inverness.

On Monday afternoon, Katias maximum sustained winds had increased to 116 mph. That makes Katia a major hurricane, and additional strengthening was expected later in the day. Hurricane specialist Todd Kimberlain said its looking less likely Katia will hit land, but that wind from the storm could still affect the U.S. East Coast as it moves north. Kimberlain also says the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions should still keep an eye on Katia. Katia was centered about 495 miles south of Bermuda and was moving northwest near 12 mph.

woods and confirmed that another mobile home was on fire. Other responding units from the county and Crystal River were sent to a singlewide mobile home at 6345 W. Tangerine Lane, a road that runs parallel with Avocado. Each property is situated on the north side of its respective road. Firefighters arrived at 10:41 p.m. to the second property, owned by Shirley Lamon of Columbus, Ohio. Because the mobile home was fully involved, firefighters began defensive operations. The second mobile home also was unoccupied and no injuries were reported. According to neighbors, the home has been vacant. The fire caused extensive damage, making the structure a total loss. The esti mated damage to the propertywas reported as $49,000. The cause for each fire is unknown. The Florida State Fire Marshal was called and is investigating each incident. People in the neighborhood who refused to be identified told a reporter they suspected the fires were caused by arson, as arson was the official cause of a structure fire on Moss Lane, another nearby street, where the Florida Advisory Committee on Arson Prevention has posted a notice offering a reward.

After making contact and temporarily alleviating the issue, Melito said a CARE member would help make arrangements with the right organization so the person could be cared for on a more permanent basis. CARE has collaborated with several local food stores, pharmacies and utility companies to help make the program a reality. Its a group effort, Harmon said. CARE members are also on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so Harmon said if someone needs help at 2 a.m., they are on it. If someone loses power in this heat, were able to make arrangements to turn it back on no matter what time, she said. Melito said they have already informed all the road deputies about CARE and what services it provides. Theyre our eyes and ears, he said. Many times, Harmon said, senior citizens are too proud to admit when they need help. Melito said if anyone knows of a senior citizen who is in need of help, they should call the Florida Abuse Hotline at (800) 9622873.

Its very cool, he said. Thats the great thing about this sport. You want the trees to be there because you want to weave through them. Its very winding and narrow. A mountain bike trail in Citrus County had been a dream of Reinhards for years. He said when he was a student at Lecanto High School and used the pool at Whispering Pines, hed put his bike in his truck and ride the parks perimeter trail, but it didnt have the terrain mountain-bike riders crave. Once you do a thousand laps on the perimeter trail, it gets a little mundane, he said. Then about three years ago, he met fellow cyclists John Steelfox and James Eno and they started talking about creating a trail in Inverness. Reinhard said Steelfox put the plan in motion and spearheaded the project. When you ride on the (Withlacoochee State) trail, youre riding a straight line on asphalt, Steelfox said. Mountain bike riding is a totally different experience. Its the smell of the pines that James Eno enjoys, also the adventure. You dont know what youre going to find around the next bend, he said. The 2.5-mile trail loop in Whispering Pines Park in Inverness has been open for about two years. Located across from the community building, its another example of community partnership, said Pati Smith, Inverness parks and recreation director. Over the years people would ask, Where can we ride our bikes? There really wasnt a place inside the park, other than on the perimeter trail, Smith said. Steelfox presented the idea of the trail to Smith and in September 2009, the city of Inverness and Citrus County Mountain Bike Club signed a memorandum of understanding. They showed us that there was a segment of the community who was traveling out of the area to ride, Smith said. So, there was a need and a desire for it here. Reinhard said building the trail was the easy part. Volunteers came to the park and raked leaves and trimmed hedges and branches, to make a path. Were not professional, Eno said. It was just a half-dozen of us walking through the woods. After that it was a matter of telling other cyclists about it, and as they rode it, the path got packed down by their tires. Its very natural, Reinhard said. We didnt have to cut down any trees. Smith said the trail users have taken ownership of it, maintaining it themselves. She added that theres no way of knowing how many people use the trail. Reinhard said one of the things they kept in mind while planning was the demographics of Citrus County. We understand that not everybodys 22 years old, and we designed it so families and retirees could use it, he said. We wanted to have something that could get people in love with the sport, something that wasnt too treacherous that theyd hurt themselves, but that would employ enough skill that its fun for every rider. Its technical, he said, but youre not going to find huge drops or boulders in the way. Its just really cool.

Authorities in Florida and Alabama had been searching for Proctor since last week, when he was named a suspect in the disappearance of Amy Patterson. Patterson, 41, has not been seen since late July, a few days before school started in Lee County. She never showed up for work as a teacher at Mariner Middle School in Fort Myers. According to the Sheriffs Office, school officials asked Pattersons relatives if they knew where she was. Sheriffs officials said Patterson and Proctor were divorced but had been living together in Fort Myers. Proctor told school officials Patterson had died in a car crash. Lee County Sheriffs officials said Proctors story quickly fell apart and a missing persons report on Patterson was filed Aug. 25. Last week, Sheriffs Lt. Ryan Bell said the investigation indicated Patterson was most likely dead. He declined to offer more details. Proctor had been spotted last week in Madison, Ala., where he has relatives.

Last week, a planned development overlay was presented to the Citrus County Planning and Development Review Board to tweak again the development of Chassa Oaks RV Resort on U.S. 19 south of Chassahowitzka. The first phase of construction on the 67-acre RV resort began in 2006. The latest request to the board has been for major modification of its master plan. It includes revisions to previously approved conditions regarding buffers, wetland impacts and internal impacts. It would change proposed uses of secondand thirdphase areas in the park and seeks a variance from the U.S. 19 access standards. Joe Hochadel, planner, Land Development Division, reported to the board the developers want to relocate the median access. They are also proposing a northbound left turn lane to facilitate people coming into their RV park from northbound U.S. 19, Hochadel said. Hochadel said the park had a road to nowhere that now had plans. It actually goes somewhere now, Hochadel said. The road would lead to 54 RV pads, still meeting density standards. According to the presentation, the previous plan contained 114 RV pads with an access road through the wetland to an upland area in the northwest corner of the property. The additional 54 RV pads would be located in this upland area. The total number of RV pads that could be placed on this property with the maximum density of five spaces per gross acre is 206. Paul Furman with Furman and Hilpert Engineering described the resorts aerobic system for waste disposal, as he described other features. James Williams, board member, asked the resort owner, Jim Eyster, if the property could be connected to the county sewer system. Eyster said the sewer was not an option at this time, but would like to consider sewer connection in the future. Gary Bibeau, a resident on South Rivera Drive, property that backs up to the resort, said he and other residents would prefer to see long-term residential housing development in the area rather than short-term RV facilities. Furman answered the land development code encourages RV parks. The board approved the plan on condition of revising the number of park models from 25 percent to 15 percent. Park models are not mobile units. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at 564-2916 or cvanormer@ chronicleonline.com.

Associated PressCAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. Four decades after landing men on the moon, NASA is returning to Earths orbiting companion, this time with a set of robotic twins that will measure lunar gravity while chasing one another in circles. By creating the most precise lunar gravity map ever, scientists hope to figure out whats beneath the lunar surface, all the way to the core. Near-identical twins Grail-A and Grail-B short for Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory are due to blast off Thursday aboard an unmanned rocket. It will be a long, roundabout trip three to four months because of the small Delta II rocket used to boost the spacecraft. NASAs Apollo astronauts used the mighty Saturn V rocket, which covered the approximately 240,000 miles to the moon in a mere three days. NASAs Grail twins will travel more than 2 million miles to get to the moon under this slower but more economical plan. The mission, from start to finish, costs $496 million. Grail-A will arrive at the moon on New Years Eve, followed by Grail-B on New Years Day. They will go into orbit around the lunar poles and eventually wind up circling just 34 miles above the surface. For nearly three months, the spacecraft will chase one another around the moon, meticulously flying in formation. The distance between the two probes will range from 40 miles to 140 miles. Radio signals bouncing between the twins will provide their exact locations, even on the far side of the moon. Scientists will be able to measure even the slightest variations in the gap between orbiting Grail-A and Grail-B. These subtle changes will indicate shifting masses below or at the lunar surface: mountains in some places, enormous lava tubes and craters in others. The moon actually has the most uneven gravitational field in the solar system, according to NASA. By the time their science mission ends in late spring, Grail-A and Grail-B will be within 10 miles of the lunar surface. Barring a change in plans, they will crash into the moon.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Its flu vaccine time again and some lucky shot-seekers will find the needle has shrunk. The first flu shot that works with a less-scary skin prick instead of an inch-long needle is hitting the market this fall. Sorry kids, this option so far is just for adults, and its so brand-new that it will take some searching to find a dose. But there are plenty of the other varieties standard shots, a special high-dose shot for seniors and the needle-free squirt-in-the-nose option to go around. At least 166 million doses of flu vaccine are expected to be produced this year. The big question is whether people will get it. Usually each years flu vaccine varies from the previous versions as different influenza strains emerge. This year, the vaccines a duplicate because the three flu strains that sickened people last winter still are circulating. Scientific studies arent clear about how much a persons immunity wanes over a year, although it varies by age and overall health. But federal health officials and the American Academy of Pediatrics weighed the evidence and say dont skip this years vaccination its the only way to be sure your immune system remains revved enough for the best protection. Here are some questions and answers about flu vaccinations: Q: How does the new skindeep vaccine work? A: Sanofi Pasteurs Fluzone Intradermal uses a needle less than a tenth of an inch long to inject vaccine just below the skins surface. This layer, called the dermis, is so rich in a certain type of immune cell that the new shot uses a lower dose of the same vaccine thats in regular flu shots. Studies found it triggered as much protection as full-strength muscle shots although it did cause more skin reactions like redness, swelling and itching. Theres little data on pain perception. Q: What about the original ouchless flu vaccine, the nasal-spray version? A: MedImmunes FluMist is for a different age group, people ages 2 to 49 who are healthy, meaning no one with underlying health conditions or who is pregnant. Unlike flu shots that are made with killed flu virus, FluMist is made with live but weakened virus. Q: For older adults, does CDC recommend the highdose shot? A: The immune system weakens with age so that it doesnt respond as well to an ordinary flu shot. Sanofis Fluzone High-Dose is a standard into-themuscle shot, but it contains four times the usual dose, to spur more immune response in people 65 and older. First sold last year, studies still are under way to track if that translates into fewer illnesses and hospitalizations. It can cause more of the typical flu-shot side effects. The CDC says its OK for seniors to choose either a high-dose shot or the regular shots from a variety of manufacturers. Q: When should I get vaccinated? A: Anytime, but it takes about two weeks for protection to kick in. Flu typically starts circulating around November, and peaks around January. Some chain pharmacies started vaccinating a month ago. Dont put it off too long, said Dr. Scott Gorenstein of Great Neck, N.Y., an emergency physician whose own son Nate, then 4, nearly died of flu during the 2009 pandemic. The boy already had been exposed by the time vaccine was available that fall. Now, Gorenstein says the whole family gets inoculated in early fall. We got lucky, said Gorenstein, who now advises a group called Families Fighting Flu. You just dont want to be a statistic that is preventable.

Apopka Ave., Inverness www.InvernessHearing.com Time for flu shots and some may get a tiny needle Associated PressWASHINGTON Putting a business imprint on the debate over jobs, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Monday issued an open letter to Congress and to the White House calling for a series of measures designed to increase employment, including greater oil drilling, quicker road and bridge construction and temporary corporate tax breaks. If enacted, the chamber estimates the steps could encourage corporations to spend much of the nearly $2 trillion dollars that have accumulated on their balance sheets and generate more than 6 million jobs by 2013, and even more in ensuing years. The chamber is looking to influence job creation proposals just days after a government employment report showed no net job growth in August. Chamber President Thomas Donohue released the seven-page letter as the first step in a campaign to draw attention to the chambers proposals and influence Washington policymakers. Donohue identified six job creating initiatives: Offering reduced tax rates to corporations on profits earned overseas, a move that the chamber says would encourage multinational corporations to bring as much as $1.2 trillion to the U.S. economy, and by temporarily reducing the tax rate companies pay on the sale of capital assets. Passing pending trade agreements with Colombia, South Korea and Panama, modernizing export control measures and adopting changes in patent law to protect intellectual property. Increase oil and gas exploration to levels in place before the Gulf oil spill prompted a moratorium on offshore drilling permits, expand oil and gas exploration on federal lands and approve a $7 billion, 1,700-mile oil pipeline from Canada to the Gulf Coast. Congressional approval of transportation, aviation and water resources programs that finance road, bridge and airport construction. Those programs are mostly paid for with gasoline taxes or other user fees. Provide regulatory relief for industries, including a moratorium on rules that are deemed to have a significant economic impact until the economy has improved and employment has grown. U.S. Chamber spells out its jobs agenda Associated PressLONDON Wall Street braced for losses on Tuesday after world stock markets took a beating over fears that the U.S. economy was heading back into recession. Any troubles in the worlds largest economy cast a long shadow over the markets, and a report Friday that the U.S. economy failed to add any new jobs in August caused European and Asian stock markets to sink sharply Monday. That jobs figure was far below economists already tepid expectations for 93,000 new U.S. jobs and renewed concerns that the U.S. recovery is not only slowing but actually unwinding. U.S. hiring figures for June and July were also revised lower, only adding to the gloom. The full impact of the jobs report will hit U.S. markets on Tuesday, since trading there was closed Monday for the U.S. Labor Day holiday. The jobs crisis has prompted President Barack Obama to schedule a major speech Thursday night to propose steps to stimulate hiring. Until then, however, traders coming back from the U.S. holiday weekend will have little to hold onto. The uncertainty has already pushed many to pull out of any risky investments such as stocks, particularly financial ones, the euro and emerging market currencies and pile into safe havens: U.S. Treasuries, the dollar, the Japanese yen and gold. With Wall Street closed, investors focused their selling drive in Asia and Europe, where the equity losses Monday were some of the heaviest this year. Weve got some rough riding ahead, said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at Harris Private Bank in Chicago, adding he was concerned that we could see a second wave of selling when most traders are back at their desks. Dow futures were down 1.8 percent at 11,010 points while the broader S&P 500 futures were 2.0 lower at 1,145.70. The health of the U.S. economy is crucial for the wider world because consumer spending there accounts for a fifth of global economic activity. The U.S. imports huge amounts from Japan and China and is closely linked at all levels with the European market. Beyond its lack of jobs growth, the U.S. has seen a slump in consumer and business sentiments. Traders were hoping for signs that the Federal Reserve might take action at its September meeting to support the economy perhaps a third round of bond purchases, dubbed quantitative easing III or QE3, analysts said. Right now the possibility has increased, said Linus Yip, a strategist at First Shanghai Securities in Hong Kong. I think they have to do something. The markets are expecting QE3. After Asian indexes closed lower, with the Japans Nikkei 225 shedding 1.9 percent, European shares booked sharp losses. Britains FTSE 100 closed the day down 3.6 percent to 5,102.58. Germanys DAX slumped a massive 5.3 percent to 5,246.18, and Frances CAC-40 tumbled 4.7 percent to 2,999.54. Deutsche bank closed down 8.9 percent in Frankfurt, while Societe Generale in Paris shed 8.6 percent. In Asia, Australias S&P/ASX 200 followed the broaden trend to close down 2.4 percent and South Koreas Kospi slid 4.4 percent. Hong Kongs Hang Seng slid 3 percent. Benchmarks in Singapore, Taiwan, New Zealand and the Philippines also were down. Shanghais benchmark Composite Index down 2 percent to 2,478.74, its lowest close in 13 months. The Shenzhen Composite Index lost 2.4 percent. Benchmark oil for October delivery was down $2.12 to $84.33 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Crude fell $2.48 to settle at $86.45 on Friday.

The Korea Composite Stock Price Index fell 4.39 percent, or 81.92, to close at 1,785.83. World markets savaged by fears of U.S. recession
Associated PressATLANTA It was about three years ago, the first time Jerry Swiatek got to the 9/11 portion of his social studies class and had some freshmen say theyd never seen footage of planes flying into the World Trade Center. Each year since, more students among the current crop of 15-year-olds tell him the same thing, leaving him still amazed that theyve never experienced the horror of watching the twin towers collapse. Its etched forever in the minds of their teachers, but for the majority of school children, Sept. 11, 2001, is a day of infamy they dont remember. This years high school seniors were in second grade a decade ago. Their memories of the day of the attacks are fuzzy at best a teacher crying while hugging a colleague or being shepherded into the auditorium away from televisions filled with scenes of horror. For younger kids, its an even more distant event. Theyve heard about it, they are aware of changes that have taken place in our country, but their parents have never let them see the footage, said Swiatek, who is the district technology specialist for the Citrus County School District, and shows news clips of the burning towers to shocked students each year around Sept. 11. Students who had never seen it couldnt believe what they were seeing. I was a little concerned. More than 60 million children in America are 14 and younger, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. So how do teachers handle the daunting task of trying to explain the significance of 9/11 to students who dont remember when anyone could walk right up to the gate at the airport or when Osama bin Laden wasnt a household name? The answer isnt simple, and it has changed over time as the countrys rhetoric about the attacks has evolved. Students across the country will gather for assemblies, hold moments of silence and spend history and social studies classes focusing on Sept. 11 this year. Theyll hear stories from teachers and talk to survivors or family members of victims. Theyll read front-page headlines screaming UNTHINKABLE or ACT OF WAR in giant letters. Though its been a decade, just a few states and school districts have a set curriculum for teaching Sept. 11. Unlike Pearl Harbor or the assassinations of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and President John F. Kennedy, the story of 9/11 is still being written as the country continues to grapple with its impact. New Jersey unveiled its new curriculum this year in honor of the 10th anniversary of the attacks, a lesson plan created by families of Sept. 11 victims and the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education. It provides 56 lessons which start simple and grow in complexity and maturity with each grade level emphasizing the good that came out of the tragedy for younger students and examining the history of terrorism and other complicated lessons for older students. Lessons recommend some kind of action, such as creating art about tolerance or service projects to honor or remember victims. We really wanted something broader in scope, that Sept. 11 would have a context to it, said Donna Gaffney, a co-founder of the 4 Action Initiative, which put the materials together. In 2009, New York City schools piloted what was believed to be the first comprehensive educational plan focusing on the attacks. Created by the New Jersey-based Sept. 11 Education Trust, the curriculum has also been tested in schools in California, Alabama, Indiana, Illinois and Kansas. It uses videos and interviews about the attacks, as well as interactive exercises like having students map global terrorist activity with Google Earth software. New York City, the nations largest school district, announced an updated Sept. 11 curriculum this month that includes tips on how to help students cope with learning about the horrors of that day, a study of the art inspired by the terrorist attacks and a history of the building of the 9/11 memorial. The project was done in partnership with the National September 11 Memorial & Museum and a group of New York City educators. A few nonprofit groups like the Sept. 11 Education Trust founded by Anthony Gardner, whose 30-year-old brother, Harvey, died in the World Trade Center have come out with lesson plans but those programs have not become widely adopted. Even the U.S. State Department has developed materials for educators. It's a long process to get the program out there in the hands of teachers and making teachers feel equipped to handle it with students, said Gardner, who said his curriculum is used at least in part in about 2,000 schools across the globe. Maybe by the 25th anniversary there will be programs in place that meet the need. Though the topic is covered by nearly every history and social studies textbook on the market, researchers have found the mentions are scant. Teachers can use online resources from newspapers or foundations to help supplement, but it's up to them to find that material.

Obituraries Death ELSEWHERE Salvatore Licitra, 43 ITALIAN TENOR ROME Salvatore Licitra, a tenor known in his Italian homeland as the new Pavarotti, died Monday, at 43, after spending nine days in a coma following a motorscooter accident in Sicily. Catanias Garibaldi Hospital, announcing the death, said Licitra never regained consciousness after suffering severe head and chest injuries in the Aug. 27 accident. Doctors had said Licitra crashed his scooter into a wall near the town of Ragusa, apparently after suffering an interruption of blood to the brain while driving. The hospital said Licitras family agreed to make his organs available for transplant. So very sad to say goodbye to Salvatore Licitra. I will miss you, soprano Deborah Voigt, a frequent onstage partner, wrote on her Facebook page. His passing in the fullness of his career hurts, the La Scala opera house wrote in its own announcement of the tenors death. La Scala noted Licitra debuted in the famed Milan venue in the 1998-1999 season, with maestro Riccardo Muti conducting him in Verdis La Forza del Destino. But it was on the stage of Metropolitan Opera in New York, that Licitra, the Swissborn son of Sicilian parents, grabbed the worlds attention. He subbed for megatenor Luciano Pavarotti in a gala performance in 2002 of Puccinis Tosca, wowing the audience and winning long ovations for his two big arias. The audiences response brought tears to his eyes. Peter Gelb, the Metropolitan Operas general manager, hailed Licitra as one of the greatest natural tenor talents of his generation. His premature death is tragic for his family, friends and loved ones, and his legions of admirers around the world, which include his many fans at the Met. La Scala praised Licitra as a dramatic tenor, with strength. Licitra represented the school and tradition of Italian song, in his natural relationships to words, the Milan opera house said. A decade of his personal history was interwoven with our theater. The tenor made his debut in Parma, Italy, in 1998. He had traveled to the Ragusa area in late summer ahead of a ceremony to receive a local music prize. Salvatore Licitra Winter threatens repairs Associated PressNEW YORK Northeastern states struggling to rebuild hundreds of roads and dozens of bridges in the wake of Hurricane Irene are facing another natural threat: winter. The end of construction season is fast approaching in New England and upstate New York. By November it will be too cold to lay asphalt, and by December snow and ice will cover the mountains, leaving towns dangerously isolated and possibly dissuading tourists during the regions ski season. Vermont officials said Monday they are renting quickly built, military-style temporary bridges as a stopgap measure. Were going to be into winter before we know it, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin told reporters last week. Weve got a lot of highways to rebuild, bridges to rebuild, before snow starts to fly in Vermont. Raging floods gouged and closed more than 300 local roads and state routes in Vermont and damaged at least 22 bridges in the state, marooning people for days in at least 13 towns. Irene ripped another 150 roads in neighboring New York state. Some of the washedout roads have gaping gullies 30 feet deep. Road building experts say if the work isnt done by mid-November, winters cold, ice and snows will prevent any substantial progress until after the spring thaws. The consequences could be serious: residents forced to make 30-mile detours on mountain roads, some of them unpaved to the nearest grocery store or doctor, businesses struggling for customers and a possible hit to the states allimportant winter tourism. The window is short, said Cathy Voyer, president of the Vermont chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America. You cant pour concrete, you cant pour asphalt. Stabilizing cranes in the winter would be very difficult. Other states wrestling with post-Irene road repairs include New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina and Virginia. Brad Sant, vice president of safety for the American Road and Transportation Builders Association, predicted the affected Northern states will have to settle for Band-Aid repairs until the spring. Though the level of Irenes road destruction is not unprecedented for a hurricane, What makes this more challenging is the location of the destruction, being in the Northeast with those early, cold-weather conditions that are likely to come, Sant said. To help Vermont get an early start, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood says he will authorize $5 million in quick-release rebuilding funds. Damage to the states federally funded highways alone is expected to top $125 million, LaHood said. The state owns 360 feet of temporary bridge sections and plans to install them on key spans before winter, Michael Hedges, structures program manager at the Vermont Agency of Transportation, told the Associated Press. It is also negotiating leases and rent-to-own contracts with three companies to bring in military-style Bailey bridges, Hedges said. The bridges, made up of 10-foot sections of metal decking, may have to serve for 4 or 5 years until the state can finish permanent repairs, he said. Associated Press A sport utility truck is seen in a sink hole in Kinnelon, N.J., after rains from Hurricane Irene washed out a section of Kinnelon Road. Police said the section of road from Kinnelon south to the Boonton Township line will be closed for months repair. Northern states are going to be challenged to fix their storm-damage roads before the onset of the winter cold. OBITUARIES The Citrus County Chronicles policy permits both free and paid obituaries.

Gas lag I just want to make a comment to a Sound Off section in Wednesdays paper, Aug. 31. Somebody wrote in on Sound Off about Fast rise, slow decline. That is so true. Its about the gas. These gas companies are quick to raise their price, but when they go to drop the price, it just doesnt drop fast enough. At $82 a barrel for gas, gas should be $2.99 a gallon. Diesel should be a little over $3. But they just keep playing these games and make it look so good for us. I just wish the government could take control and do whats right.Keep cats inside Cat owners should keep their cats indoors and not allow them to roam freely, as they have a habit of darting into the street. There was a fatal car accident last winter when a driver lost control of his vehicle trying to avoid hitting an animal. Also, homeowners do not appreciate having their flowerbeds used as a litter pan. Warm welcomeI was very happy to see your article in this mornings paper about the firing range coming to Citrus County. This is something we have needed here for a long time. As it is now, we have to drive clear to Leesburg or down to Brooksville if we want to use a shooting range. I wish the people who are starting up this business the best of success and Im thankful that this is coming to Citrus County.Funding fast food Its kind of interesting that people are complaining now theyd like to see a Popeyes chicken come into Citrus County. What most people fail to realize is that you just dont put up a building and start frying chicken and selling it to the public. A lot of these companies do research in the area and I think youll discover, if you take the time to do some research, Citrus County is kind of a poor area to develop another fast-food restaurant. If you dont have enough of people in the area to support another fast-food restaurant and which were loaded with them the cost of putting one in and subsidizing it and supporting it is astronomical. And in order to really make a profit, youve got to sell a lot of chicken and outdo all your other fast-food competitors, and I dont think thats going to happen here. Poor plans for poor The tea party and the Republican Party, which is practically one, are in it only for themselves. If you see the wacky things that they are trying to do and push through, it is absolutely against the average person. The average Joe Sixpack will suffer in every way you want to think, including taxes, benefits and anything else that helps the poor or the middle class. They want to destroy the poor and the middle class. That is their option. That is the way they think and that is what they are trying. Paul suppressed I always thought the tenets of journalism in this country included all the facts first and then a little spin, if desired, to show the reporters/papers bias/opinion. What happened? The Ames Straw Poll had a squeakthrough winner, Michelle Bachmann, only about 200 votes ahead of Ron Paul, who was quite a bit ahead of the rest of the pack. Yet to read the articles, listen to and view the electronic media and its abundance of talking heads, it would seem a ventriloquist/ ghost writer was at work. Almost everyone ignores Ron Pauls participation and excellent showing. Several organizations are currently running their own straw polls, and Ron Paul is not even listed! Ron Paul, in my opinion and many others, is a very viable candidate and deserves the same space and coverage given to other candidates. Whats the deal? Is a free press in the United States no longer available? Fred Clark Inverness Dont vote yes yetRe: Onsite office building proposal for Oak Village.The cost/benefit analysis for the proposed office building is not comprehensive or complete. Costs are considered and discarded as being a wash. Other costs were not considered at all. Without a credible analysis,we cannot make an informed decision. Before we commit to spending $400,000, we should have all the current costs compared to all the estimated costs so that we may determine the impact on future budgets. The analysis provided to date is an oversimplification of what is needed to determine the financial impact of this proposal. I urge all residents to vote no on this proposal until a credible cost/benefit analysis is completed and disseminated. With this in hand, we can make an informed vote. If you have already voted and want to change that vote, ask for another ballot. John H. Kennedy Homosassa No representation Rep. Richard Nugent is our District 5 congressional representative for Democrats, Republicans and other parties, yet continues to support without deviation only those views expressed by the GOP party leaders. He does not represent or favor a majority of the voters in Citrus County or district wide. On numerous occasions, without success, Ive asked for his support on legislation I believed essential to the public need. Im a member of the political organization Move On, which favors action with all our legislators to ensure that legislation benefits all of us, not just a single party. There have been significant demonstrations by Citrus County members at Rep. Nugents office in Brooksville, the last one demanding his action for job creation, an issue which has not seemed too important in spite of our high unemployment rate and our economy, which is suffering because of it. Rep. Nugent was conveniently absent. Recently, other acquaintances and I received a phone request from Nugents office asking to participate in a conference call to let him know what I would like him to do for me. Being absent, I played the recording, listened to his pleasant request, to be immediately followed by a lengthy harangue expressing the need to oust Obama and elect all Republicans in order to get this country back the way it should be. There was no doubt that it was a canned dialogue intended to reduce any reasonable requests, thus ensuring receipt of requests only from who wanted to continue adding critical statements. Im very disappointed with our congressional representation and am hopeful that he will quickly start representing all his constituents, especially if he plans for reelection in 2012.

Page A8 TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2011 Shop Citrus? How? I see those ads in the paper that say Shop Citrus. I always think, Id love to shop Citrus. If only they had the great stores here. My husband and I moved here from Broward County. We always made it a point to shop not only in our county, but in our own city. We loved doing that; it made us feel good to keep our money in our city. It keeps businesses open and keeps local residents on the job. It also kept taxes rolling in to our city, and that keeps property taxes down. However, we cant do that here in Citrus County because so many popular stores are not here. The closest Walmart to us is in Dunnellon, which is in Marion County, and they have an additional 1 percent sales tax and I dont like that. What happened to the Target that was coming to Lecanto? Why are there so many objections when the BOCC announces there will be a box store coming soon? If we dont grow, we will die here. Are we that closedminded that we want to keep things as they were in 1960? It was a simpler time for sure, but times are not as simple now. Finances are an issue for our county as much as they are for its population. More stores mean more county money and more jobs. We need to grow. Yes, it will create more traffic, but also will create more jobs and we can shop Citrus. It is easier, timelier, and we use less gas if we zip down 484 to Ocala for shopping. While we are there, we go to all of the stores we like to shop at, i.e., Target, Best Buy, Bath & Body Works, Sams, Vitamin Shoppe, Aldi, Bed, Bath & Beyond, and we have lunch at one of our favorite restaurants, Firehouse Subs, Sams Seafood, Red Lobster, or Steak & Shake for an awesome milkshake. We dont want to shop in neighboring counties, but what choice do we have? Jim and Debbie Brown Citrus Springs ER improvements Anyone who has ever suffered with kidney stones is aware of the immediate need to control the tremendous pain associated with this affliction. Having to wait for treatment in an emergency room is unthinkable. Two weeks ago, on a Friday evening, I felt the pain in my lower back and knew from past experience that it was a kidney stone. The last place I wanted to go was the emergency room at Citrus Memorial hospital, especially after reading about the experience of the woman with a 10 out of 10 pain threshold having to wait nine hours for treatment. Upon arriving at the emergency room, I went quickly through the paperwork and triage. Within 30 minutes I was in a room with a nurse and a doctor who diagnosed my condition as kidney stones and immediately prescribed a pain medicine. Shortly thereafter I passed the stone and was sent home. From arrival to departure took 1 hour and 45 minutes. Whatever the problems were that existed at the Citrus Memorial emergency room, they appear to have gone or at least improved tremendously; they were very professional. Thanks to the entire staff at the Citrus Memorial emergency room. John T. Beagan Inverness T his will be a stretch for some, but stay with me. Suppose someone presented a plan guaranteed to achieve the objectives everyone (or almost everyone serious about such matters) agrees are necessary to create jobs, end our financial dependence on China, reform the tax code and repair Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid so they not only continue to support people now, but ensure the health and welfare of future generations. Would the politicians accept this gift from the political gods? Or would they prefer the dysfunction that characterizes virtually everything they do and prevents solutions, guaranteeing instead the continuation of the issue for partisan political gain? This is the central question precedingPresident Obamas Thursday-night address to Congress. The problem with so much of Washington today is that no Democrat will accept a good idea if it comes from a Republican and, conversely, Republicans will reject any good idea that comes from Democrats. So heres a plan whose author shall remain anonymous until the end of this column in hopes you will read on. Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, this author contends, consumes 43 percent of todays federal spending. Most people might agree there is ample evidence the federal government is bloated, overextended and not living within its constitutional bounds, which has caused its dysfunction. Elevators have weight limits. Put too many people on one and it might not run. The federal government has no weight limits. Increasing numbers of us worry America may be overweight and in decline. We are mired in debt, and government seems incapable of telling anyone no or do for yourself for fear of a backlash from entitlement addicts. How about a plan that truly reforms these three massive social programs, protecting those now on them, but focusing in the future on the truly needy? I know, Democrats rejected the Paul Ryan plan, but this one goes further. How many would endorse a plan that encourages Americans to become more fiscally responsible and eliminates the incoherent tax code in favor of an expenditure tax with a single flat rate? This could lead to more personal savings of ones own money, rather than handing increasing amounts to government to poorly redistribute. It would also promote stronger capital formation (the key to job growth in the private sector) and produce a more robust economy. This plan substantially reduces the size and scope of the federal government, fundamentally increases the role of the states in choosing their own practices, and brings decision-making closer to the people rather than un-elected administrators. The plan purports to have a higher moral purpose because if entitlements are not reformed, the next generation and future ones will have to pay punitive tax rates that will end liberty as we have known it. Do I have your attention now? Humans have a tendency to live in the moment, thinking little about what those who have gone before have bequeathed to us and what we are passing on to those who follow. If we dont fix what ails us, including these soon to be bankrupt social programs (without reform, entitlement spending will consume all tax revenue in about 40 years), future generations will rightly condemn us. Details of this plan are easy to understand and difficult to oppose for other than partisan political reasons. Read it at www.savingthedream.org. Yes, it was written by the conservative Heritage Foundation, but good ideas come in all sorts of packages, and this is one that should not be rejected out of hand by Democrats. If President Obama borrowed from it for his Thursday address, rather than talk about infrastructure and more government jobs, he might actually achieve something and improve his prospects in the 2012 election. Medicine cant work if it remains on the shelf. This plan is the cure for our disease. Open wide ... your mind.

No? Surely you should youve won a fortune. Congratulations! Not one to simply accept what the person at the other end of the phone line says, Citrus Springs resident Carolyn Mills turned the table on scam artists twice in a weeks time. First she was told that she won $2.5 million from Readers Digest. Then, in a totally separate attempted shakedown, she was told she won $650,000 from Publishers Clearing House. She didnt take the bait, but had some fun with her would-be scammers, including reporting them to the Attorney Generals Office. Despite the scammers insistence that she put herself in a position to be eligible to win, she knew Readers Digest wouldnt require her to give a $99 gift card to a Federal Express driver to claim her prize. And she knew she wouldnt have to pay a fee to claim the other supposed prize. What really concerned her, though, is how organized the scam artists were. The processes for claiming the prizes who to contact, claim numbers, toll-free phone numbers of representatives with known organizations were dazzlingly orchestrated. Every day scam artists are working the unsuspecting public, knowing sooner or later theyll be deemed legitimate and happily accept payment in exchange for a prize that does not exist. It cant be said often enough: Do not trust those who call to say youve won a prize. Same for the Internet and mail. If you havent entered a specific contest, theres no chance youve won something. Dont trust that the phone numbers these con men/women are giving you are to the offices of a legitimate business. Any scammer can provide a telephone number where an accomplice knows to answer with Publishers Clearing House or Readers Digest. If youve entered a contest and suspect you may have legitimately won, independently get the telephone number (dont let the caller tell you who to call). While Ms. Mills outfoxed sophisticated scam artists, there are other scams reported daily in Citrus County which arent as organized yet are equally threatening. In recent days, many people have been contacted and asked to contribute to a Paramedics Association Fund an appeal that in no way supports Nature Coast EMS, which serves Citrus County. Nature Coast EMS does not have fund drives. There are several local people whose debit card information was fraudulently obtained, and theyre going through personal nightmares squaring away their financial situation. There are people routinely contacted about a supposed relative in a jam overseas and told they are the only one who might be able to help out by sending money. There are unlicensed, untrustworthy people offering to help with tree work, roof work, driveway resurfacing, concrete work and other services who will take your money and do shoddy work or just take your money and run. Its too bad its necessary to be jaded, but the only way to protect yourself against scam artists is to be suspicious, refuse to be intimidated, hire only licensed contractors and independently verify offers and credentials. When pondering stereotypical criminals, theres a tendency to think one knows how they look or act. Con artists are skilled at putting people at ease, getting them off balance, using professionalism and charm to gain confidence and play on emotions. Some one will get scammed today. Dont be that person today or ever. THE ISSUE: Gullibility.OUR OPINION: Outsmart the scam artists.

Evolving bureaucracy I agree with Mary Gregory (An evolving oligarchy, Aug. 25, Letters to the Editor) that 50 years ago we had a good economy and a large middle class. However, other than that, I disagree with her. I dont think she has experienced running a business or company. Corporations and businesses pay many different taxes, 10 to 15 or more, depending on their location and/or type of business. They have loans, investors and stockholders that need to be paid or monies will not flow in to keep them running. Multiple regulations make it hard to start and costly to run a business, most of which didnt exist 50 years ago. Unions demanded higher pay and more benefits without increasing output during this period. Thus companies automated in order to increase output. The middle class was born. It was made up of the hourly workers along with lowand middle-management personnel. They started buying more new products. Then prices started to rise; the demand and prices brought in foreign competitors. Their products cost less because they didnt have the taxes, regulations and high labor costs American industries had. Then, we were not willing to pay a higher price for an Americanmade product. To compete, American companies started purchasing parts from foreign companies, then they started building complete factories in the foreign countries. They didnt have the taxes, regulations and unions that were here in America, and thus they could compete again. Industries that we have lost include: oil and gas, chemicals, leather goods, textiles, clothing, electronics, manufacturing, agricultural products, furniture and lighting. As these industries left, we lost millions of well-paying jobs and a big portion of our middle class. We need to have some taxes and regulations, but government has become too big, controlling and expensive things our competitors dont have to worry about. This wasnt the case 50 to 60 years ago when we and the country were growing and prospering. Bob Balogh Homosassa Revere the rich You probably noticed our presidents relentless condemnation of the rich (not me, unfortunately). He has pleaded for taxes on their corporate jets, their yachts and limousines. He has cajoled and ridiculed the very folks who have hired me, and probably you, during our lifetime: those who run the companies, large and small, that support the capitalist system that makes us the envy of the world; the folks who provide most all the tax money to keep our nation alive. There is a case to be made that we rely on the rich. There is a better case that the rich are mostly not really rich; but if they are, they spend a lot of money, stimulating our economy. President Obama, his professorial czars and political advisors are economically and historically illiterate when it comes to taxes. History speaks volumes to those who listen. Taxes can have unintended economic consequences. Examples abound to support this defense of the rich, but consider this one. In 1990 a Democrat Congress levied a 10 percent tax on luxury planes, yachts, jewelry, furs and other costly merchandise. Within eight months the largest manufacturer of yachts, Viking, closed one plant and laid off 1140 workers. Within 12 months one-third of all yacht builders ceased production. The industry lost 7,600 jobs. Before the tax was finally repealed, 25,000 workers lost their jobs. Viking employment shrunk from 1,400 to 68. America went from exporting to importing yachts. The estimated $31 million in revenue for the first year was actually a $7 million loss, and cost $24 million in unemployment benefits. You can imagine the impact on the other luxury industries. Businesses began to exit our shores. To those who remain determined to destroy the rich, thereby crashing the economy (which it will), Id suggest you stock your food shelves, bury your gold, get a shotgun and most important be ready to support all your neighbors; they will need/demand your help. Life will be no cabaret, my friend. Ted LaPorte Hernando Full employment The people who believe the political discourse in Washington is about Democrats vs. Republicans or liberals vs. conservatives are wrong. This is a battle for the future of the Republic. The ongoing dialogue is more correctly defined as socialism/communism vs. capitalism/free enterprise. Our president and those he has surrounded himself with are socialists/communists. The president has said more than once he is in favor of redistribution of wealth. What would you call redistribution of wealth? Where have those forms of government ever succeeded economically? The course of our fiscal policies are about to drive the country under a burden we cannot survive. This is a goal the political left would cherish, as then everyone would be solely dependent on the federal government. The old, stale rallying point is tax the wealthy. This is a falsehood, as the people they want to tax are high income earners. If the government took all of the money these people earned, it would not make a dent in the deficit or the national debt. If the feds wanted to tax the rich, they would propose a wealth tax. A consumption tax would treat people more equitably, as those who spend more would pay more taxes. Then the income tax could be repealed. This would also capture the underground economy which now pays no tax. That, however, is not the plan. The plan is to make those not powerful or wealthy now equally poor in the future. If you still believe the fight is about taking care of the less fortunate, there is no hope for you. What is needed is a full-employment economy so the less fortunate can work for themselves! Malcolm Hollop Beverly Hills No standing still Great writing (Get the facts, then weigh good, bad, Aug. 28). I thought most of Citrus wanted to stay the same. What is true is there is no staying still; you go backward or forward. With all the businesses closing up and restaurants going under, I though the only store that could survive was a lawn art business. Sell old couches and broken boats for the front lawn. Putting people to work is the best thing the county can do. I know that if you earn a paycheck, a person could go to the store for food and that would increase the traffic. Traffic seems to be the big complaint for every new business. People need jobs, so if the traffic bothers you, stay home.

Labor Day Associated Press Andrew Hazlett, 5, shields his face from the rain Monday during the Catlettsburg Labor Day Parade in Catlettsburg, Ky. Congress returns, jobs top priority WASHINGTON Congress is reconvening this week for what could be a painful confrontation over how to put Americans back to work. Lawmakers returning after a monthlong recess are in accord on at least one thing: Jobs policy must be at the top of the agenda. But theres little hope they will be able to put aside their differences long enough to come up with legislation that makes measurable improvements either to the unemployment rate or Congress dismal approval rate. Even the main attraction of the first week back President Barack Obamas speech to a joint session of Congress was put in place only after a fight between House Republicans and the White House over the timing of the primetime event, which has been pushed back a day to Thursday. Crocodile Associated Press A Philippine National Police officer stands next to a giant saltwater crocodile Sunday, which was captured by residents and crocodile farm staff along a creek in Bunawan township, Agusan Del Sur province in the southern Philippines. Mayor Cox Elorde of Bunawan said dozens of villagers and experts ensnared the 21-foot male crocodile along a creek in his township after a three-week hunt. Earthquake jolts western IndonesiaJAKARTA, Indonesia A powerful earthquake jolted the western Indonesian island of Sumatra, killing a 12-yearold boy and sending people streaming from their houses and hotels in panic. Hundreds of patients from at least one hospital had to be evacuated, some in wheelchairs or with infusion drips still attached to their arms. The U.S. Geological Survey said the 6.6-magnitude quake was centered 60 miles southwest of the city of Medan at a depth of 62 miles. It was too far inland, however, to generate a tsunami. The temblor hit at about 1 a.m. local time Tuesday, rattling people from their sleep in towns and villages across the islands northern tip. Maura Sakti, a mayor in Subulussalam, told the local station TVOne a 12-year-old boy had been killed. He had no other details about injuries or damage. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A10 TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Storm turns deadly in Miss. Associated PressJACKSON, Miss. A plodding system dumping a torrent of rain across the South turned deadly in Mississippi when a man was swept away by floodwaters after trying to cross a swollen creek, authorities said Monday. The death was the first reported so far that was directly attributed to the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee. Forecasters said the storm wasnt finished yet as it slowly moved east, threatening to spin off more tornadoes and cause flash floods and mudslides along the way. At least 16,000 people were without power in Louisiana and Mississippi as of Monday afternoon. The man who died in Mississippi, 57-year-old John Howard Anderson Jr., had been in a car with two other people trying to cross a rainswollen creek that naturally flows over the entrance to JP Coleman State Park. Anderson had been staying on a houseboat at the parks marina. Tishomingo County Coroner Mack Wilemon said he was told Anderson was outside of the car and had been thrown a rope to be rescued, but he couldnt hold on. Jonathan Weeks, a 48year-old salesman from Plantersville who owns a vacation home near the park, said he helped pull two people to shore and tried to save Anderson. Weeks said a strong storm had come through the area and he and his wife went out looking around when they saw a van crossing the creek. He happened to have a rope in the tool box of his truck. It all happened so fast. They were in there trying to get out and panicking. The power was out so everything was dark, Weeks recalled in a phone interview Monday. We threw them a rope and tied it to a tree, Weeks said. We got two of them to the bank and were trying to help the driver. We had him on the rope and were trying to pull him in, but I dont think he was able to hold on. Art Gaines, a 69-year-old retiree who lives near the park, said he and his wife heard their dogs barking at the commotion. When we looked out the window we saw flashlights and then the next thing we know there was a van going down the creek, which is a misnomer, because once the water gets rolling through there its like a small river, not a creek, Gaines said. Gaines called 911 and went outside to help. By then, two people had been pulled from the water and others were searching for Anderson. Associated Press Mailboxes are all that can be seen to mark streets as flash flooding rises along Sam Rayburn Drive Monday in Hattiesburg Miss., as the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee push through the Pine Belt. Wildfire ravages Texas Associated Press Firefighters from around the state battle a large wildfire Monday on Highway 71 near Smithville, Texas. Associated PressBASTROP Texas A wildfire burning near Austin, Texas, destroyed about 300 homes, forced the evacuation of many others and was advancing unchecked Monday through parched ranchland along a 16-mile front, authorities said. The fire had blackened more than 17,500 acres since it started Sunday and was the largest of the dozens burning in the drought-stricken state. It was headed away from the state capital, some 30 miles to the northwest, and consuming the water-starved woods and brush with such ferocity it was deemed unsafe to fight from the ground, Texas Forest Service spokeswoman Jan Amen said. Its a monster and its zero percent contained, Amen said. Instead, the state deployed its firefighting air fleet, including National Guard helicopters and four heavy tanker planes. It also summoned a tanker from South Dakota. Emergency shelters were set up for those forced to evacuate their homes. About 30 people spent the night at a Bastrop church, waiting to learn if they had lost everything. Texas is enduring its worst drought since the 1950s, and the wildfire threat has been exacerbated by powerful wind gusts cast off by Tropical Storm Lee, hundreds of miles to the east. The blaze near Bastrop is among at least 63 that had started Sunday or Monday. Gov. Rick Perry cut short a campaign visit to the key nominating state of South Carolina on Monday and canceled a planned trip to California to return to Texas to oversee the firefighting efforts, Ray Sullivan, a spokesman for the Republicans presidential campaign, said in a statement. There had been no reported injuries linked to the Bastrop County fire. But a fast-moving blaze in the East Texas town of Gladewater on Sunday killed a 20-year-old woman and her 18month-old daughter, trapping them in their burning home. That fire was eventually extinguished. Nearly half of Bastrop State Park, a 6,000-acre preserve east of Bastrop, was gone, KVUE-TV in Austin reported. The park and several major highways in the area were closed, but a handful of people whose RVs were left overnight in the popular park were being allowed in to retrieve them, she said. Texas has experienced more than its share of destructive storms, including Hurricane Ike three years ago. But the states anxious farmers and ranchers would have welcomed the rain Tropical Storm Lee dumped instead on Gulf Coast states farther east. Instead of water, Texas got winds, which combined with an advancing cold front to heighten the wildfire threat. All but three of the 254 counties in Texas were under outdoor burn bans. Ferocious blaze burns unchecked in drought-stricken state, causes evacuations Famine spreads in Somalia Associated PressNAIROBI, Kenya Famine has spread into one more region of Somalia and more than 4 million Somalis now need aid, the United Nations said Monday. Hundreds of Somalis are dying every day, the U.N. Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit for Somalia found in its latest surveys. At least half of them are children. About 750,000 more people may die from famine in the next four months if there is no adequate response, the U.N. report said, an increase of 66 percent from July. The top humanitarian official for Somalia described getting aid to the starving as a race against time and warned the famine would probably spread before the end of the year. This isnt a short-term crisis, said Mark Bowden, who heads the U.N. office coordinating humanitarian aid to Somalia. Bowden said the 4 million Somalis needing aid represent more than half of Somalias population. Chirac missing from trial PARIS Lawyers for former French President Jacques Chirac say he wont be able to attend his corruption trial since he is suffering severe memory lapses possibly related to a stroke. The trial involves two cases centering on the alleged creation of more than two-dozen fake city hall jobs used to fund Chiracs conservative party while he was mayor of Paris. If convicted, he would face up to 10 years in prison and 150,000 in fines. The final decision will be up to the judge, but Monday the prosecution said it would not object if Chirac skipped the trial.

Terrapins halt Hurricanes in 4th quarter Associated PressNORTON, Mass. Webb Simpson finished off an amazing comeback with three clutch birdies, the final one on the second extra playoff hole Monday in the Deutsche Bank Championship for his second win in three weeks. On a day filled with big crowds and big moments appropriate to the FedEx Cup playoffs, Simpson delivered a stunning conclusion on the TPC Boston. He looked as if he would be the runner-up until knocking in a 30-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th hole for a 6-under 65. That put him into a playoff when Chez Reavie, who had birdied the toughest holes on the back nine, made bogey on the easiest hole on the course at No. 18 for a 66. The finished regulation at 15-under 269. On the 18th hole in the playoff, Simpson again looked to be out of luck when Reavie chipped to tap-in range for birdie. But Simpson rolled in a 15-foot putt to keep the playoff going, and then won with an 8-foot putt on the 17th hole. Simpson won his first PGA Tour title three weeks ago at the Wyndham Championship, putting him in good shape for the FedEx Cup playoffs and the chase for a $10 million prize. Now he goes to No. 1 in the standings and is assured of being among the top five when the FedEx Cup concludes at the Tour Championship at the end of the month. I thought winning the second time would be easier, Simpson said. That was never the case on a breezy Labor Day south of Boston, a final round so scrambled that seven players including world No. 1 Luke Donald had a share of the lead at some point. Antron Brown celebrates after winning Top Fuel on Monday at the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals presented at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis. The win was Browns first in Top Fuel after two previous wins at the event aboard a Pro Stock Motorcycle. Associated Press Associated PressCLERMONT, Ind. Antron Brown became the first NHRA racer to win the U.S. Nationals in Top Fuel and Pro Stock Motorcycle, beating Del Worsham on Monday in the Top Fuel final. Mike Neff topped the Funny Car field, Greg Anderson won in Pro Stock and Hector Arana Jr. won the Pro Stock Motorcycle division in the final event before the six-race NHRA Countdown to the Championship playoffs. Brown beat Worsham with a run of 3.813 seconds at 321.73 mph. Brown has five victories this season. Words cannot describe how this feels, Brown said. To come here and win at Indy, the biggest stage in drag racing, means so much. It just goes back to my childhood dream and sitting under those grandstands as a kid and saying I want to do that one day. Its the greatest feeling Ive ever had. Worsham secured the No. 1 spot in points during qualifying, while Kalitta Racing driver David Grubnic locked down the 10th and final spot after both Terry McMillen and Bob Vandergriff lost in the second round. In the Funny Car final, Neff beat Bob Tasca for his fifth victory of the season. Associated PressCOLLEGE PARK, Md. Nick Ferrara kicked a 32yard field goal with 1:39 left, Danny OBrien threw for 348 yards and a touchdown, and Maryland beat shorthanded Miami 32-24 on Monday night in coach Randy Edsalls first game with the Terrapins. Miami was playing its initial game under Al Golden without eight suspended players, including quarterback Jacory Harris, linebacker Sean Spence and defensive linemen Marcus Forston and Adewale Ojomo. Stephen Morris capably filled in for Harris, going 19 for 28 for 195 yards and running for a touchdown. But on a fourth-and-4 in the final minute, the sophomore threw an interception that Cameron Chism took 54 yards for the clinching score with 39 seconds remaining. It was the second touchdown by the Maryland defense, both involving Chism. He also forced a fumble that provided the Terps with a 20-14 halftime lead. The Hurricanes, conversely, struggled defensively from the outset in this Atlantic Coast Conference duel. Maryland amassed 311 yards and 19 first downs in the first half alone and finished with 499 yards, including 92 yards on 21 carries by Davin Meggett. But the seesaw game came down to the closing minutes. Soon after OBrien completed a 52-yard pass to Kevin Dorsey, Ferrera entered only one series after missing from 23 yards out. This one, however, was right down the middle. Chism then provided the clincher. A year ago, OBrien went 9 for 28 for 134 yards in a 2620 loss to the Hurricanes. In this one, he was 31 for 44 including 19 for 26 for 228 yards after only four series. But Maryland couldnt put the finish on several impressive drives. The Terrapins got to the Miami 11 or closer on six occasions, yet they scored only one touchdown.

Wozniacki was trailing 4-1 in the second set when she began her comeback and kept alive her hopes of winning her first Grand Slam title. She did it in her typical fashion, by chasing down balls, making fewer mistakes and winning lots of long points. She finished with 26 unforced errors compared to 78 for the 17th-seeded Kuznetsova, a two-time major champion.

Top Fuel racer also captures Pro Motorstock title too See NHRA / Page B3 Associated PressNEW YORK Serena Williams fought off the wind, along with brief flurries of effectiveness from her opponent, to advance to the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open on Monday with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Ana Ivanovic. Williams closed out the match with four straight serves that Ivanovic couldnt get back clocked at between 99 and 111 mph in a blustery Arthur Ashe Stadium that had both players fighting with their tosses and topspin all day. I didnt even go for winners at any point, said Williams, who hit only 16. I just tried to get it over because it was so windy. It was definitely tough. Seeded only 28th after missing big chunks of the last two years with injuries to her foot, Williams nonetheless improved to 16-0 this year on hardcourt. She has yet to drop a set at the U.S. Open and now finds herself in her first Grand Slam quarterfinal since last year at Wimbledon, when she won her 13th major title. With each win at Flushing Meadows, she makes a stronger case that the before her name at this tournament is only a number. When healthy, she might be the best in the world. I dont know if Im the best or not, she said. I believe I am and I think a lot of other girls, women in the locker room, believe they are, too, as they should. I dont think anyone should go out and say that theyre not.

The tropical depression in the Gulf of Mexico seemed to draw away some of the humidity as well as keep the temperatures in the high 80s during the day. It wouldnt take long for drivers to heat up the action though. The program started with qualifying for the Sheldon Palmes Insurance Mini Stock division to set the starting lineup for its 50-lap feature. Ashlee Williamson (84) proved to be the car to beat, turning a fast lap of 16.31 to take top qualifier honors. Following Ashlee were Jeremy Sharrone (32) in second and Adam May (17) in third. After the roll of the tracks giant foam dice determined the starting inversion, Williamson started in the fifth row. Allen Prior (19) and Danny Cretty (29) occupied the front row as the field of 15 cars took the green flag. Prior and Cretty raced side by side for the first three laps, before Prior finally pulled ahead and took the lead. Back in the pack, the heavy hitters were on the move, including Jeff Eberly (01), Jeremy Sharrone (32) and Adam May (17). Top qualifier Williamson charged hard to get to the front first, but Eberly got there first. He passed Prior and put some distance on the rest of the field. Behind Eberly, a fierce battle was raging for the second position between May, Williamson and Sharrone. Williamson looked high and low for more than 25 laps before she finally found an open lane on the inside. She took over the second spot with Sharrone following in third. Mays Volkswagen suffered mechanical problems shortly after, and retired to the pits. Williamson poured on the pressure for the lead, again looking high and low for a way by the leader. Eberly, the driver with the most wins in the division, never slipped a tire of the final few laps and won the biggest race of the year for the Sheldon Palmes Insurance Mini Stock division. Williamson came home a strong second with point leader Jeremy Sharrone claiming third. Street StocksEleven Street Stocks rumbled to the green for its 20-lap feature with Bill Ryan (33) and Austin Hughes (68) on the front row. Ryan jumped out to the early lead, but third starter and point leader Curtis Flanagan (3), soon rocketed to the top spot off of turn 2. Behind Flanagan the competition was furious; several drivers raced hard for a position, making for some rough racing. On lap 5, all of the beating and banging caught up with two drivers. Entering turn 1, Bill Ryan and Kenny May (10) made hard side-to-side contact. Both cars shot up the banking and hit the wall, finishing both cars for the night. May had to be restrained as he attempted to talk with Ryan about the incident. On the restart, Flanagan pulled away to an easy victory over the final 15 laps, increasing his points lead. John Makula had a strong car all night, winning the heat race. He turned that into a solid second-place run in the feature ahead of Kyle Peters (53) in third. Modified Minis Ten Modified Mini Stocks tried to find their way to victory lane with Jeff Eberly (20) and Don Faunce (2) bringing the field to green. Eberly jumped out to an early lead, but soon was under heavy pressure from point leader Chris Allen (33). Allen attempted to make a threewide move for the lead, resulting in a flat right front tire. Allen then stopped on the track, bringing out the caution and resulting in a one-lap penalty against him. Mike Lawhorn (44) took the lead on the restart and tried to put as much distance as possible between himself and the field. A lap-12 caution for a spinning Nathan Florian (26) closed the field. After the restart, defending division champion Clint TIGHT RACES Foley put on the pressure and took the lead away from Lawhorn. Foley went on to take the victory followed by Lawhorn in second and Jesse Henley (18) in third. Mark Powers (9) was the heatrace winner.Inter-County hornet Scott Bumgarner (9) made his first visit to Citrus County Speedway pay off by taking the victory in the Inter-County Recycling Hornet Division. Bumgarner was pressured from multiple-time winner Kane Dixon (15) over the final five laps, but held off the hardcharging 14-year-old. Lead singer of the local band The Neon Truckers. Ricky Mitchell took the track rental car home with a strong third-place finish in his first hornet race. Pro ChallengeEleven Pro Challenge racecars would took on the quarter-mile oval in the 30-lap feature. Paul White (25) finally shook the monkey off his back and found his way to victory lane for the first time this year at Citrus County Speedway. White was pressured from Super Late Model driver Kyle Maynard (28) during the final five laps, but held on to the top spot. Maynard settled for second place in the truck normally piloted by Randy Glick. Harvey Johnson (2) had his most competitive run of the year end with a solid third-place finish, after leading several laps in the beginning on the race. Upcoming races This Saturday night will be an action-packed evening with the weeks racing being a cant-miss show. The open wheel modifieds will race Twin 30s, two 30-lap features to make up for the rainout from two weeks ago. Perhaps the best race of the night will be the 50lap $1,000 to win Sportsman race. Earlier in the year, this division came out 26 cars strong for a 50lap $750 to win race. So this one should be even bigger. Joining on the race card will be the Taylor Made Homes Pure Stocks, Sheldon Palmes Insurance Mini Stocks, the Inter-County Recycling Hornet division and the Pro Figure 8s.

The top player on the mens side, Novak Djokovic, opened his fourth-round match with a thrilling 16-14 first-set tiebreaker win over No. 22 Alexandr Dolgopolov. Things got easier from there in a 7-6 (14), 6-4, 6-2 victory. This is one of the longest tiebreaks I ever played, Djokovic said. It was certainly exciting to be part of it. But, you know, I knew that I needed to win that set. Djokovic saved four set points and finally closed out the set on his sixth chance. When Dolgopolov missed a forehand to give Djokovic the set, Djokovic pumped his fist and put his hands to his ears to take in the applause from the fans at Louis Armstrong Stadium, which sees fewer and fewer headliners as the tournament progresses and the big matches move into Ashe. It was a packed stadium. It was a different experience because I havent played on that court for a while, Djokovic said.

Rays 5, Rangers 1 ST. PETERSBURG James Shields pitched a four-hitter for his major league-best 11th complete game and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the AL West-leading Texas Rangers 51 on Monday. Shields (14-10) struck out six and walked two. The only run he allowed scored on Michael Youngs grounder with one out in the ninth. Shields also became the first AL pitcher since Randy Johnson in 1993 to have at least 200 strikeouts and 10 complete games in the same season when he fanned Josh Hamilton in the first. The only other 200-strikeout, 10complete game pitcher since 2000 was CC Sabathia, who accomplished the feat when the left-hander pitched for Cleveland and Milwaukee during the 2008 season. Evan Longoria and B.J. Upton homered for the Rays, who are 24-13 since July 28. The victory was the 500th overall for Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon. Texas starter Scott Feldman (1-1) gave up four runs and four hits in five innings. The Rangers were coming off a big series at Boston during which they won two of three. Longoria hit a solo drive in the first for his 25th homer. Yankees 11, Orioles 10NEW YORK Jesus Montero broke a fifth-inning tie with his first major league home run, then hit a tworun drive in the seventh to help the New York Yankees outlast the Baltimore Orioles 11-10 Monday for their fifth straight win. On an afternoon that featured both starting pitchers making early exits after wretched outings, Robinson Cano sparked the comeback from a 5-2 second-inning deficit with his third grand slam in less than a month. Montero then made his fourth big league game one to remember. Montero broke an 8-all tie when he homered deep into the right-field seats on the second pitch from Jim Johnson (5-5) leading off the fifth. The 21-yearold catching prospect, who made his big league debut at Boston last Thursday, came out of the dugout and waved his helmet during a curtain call.

Associated PressLAS VEGAS Even without Jerry Lewis, the Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon posted its best gain since the recession started, though the programs longtime host was on the minds of many during the 46th annual fundraiser. American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe said after cohosting Sundays program that hes sorry the famed comedian didnt participate, but the organization needs to move on to ensure the fundraiser continues. The telethon raised nearly $61.5 million Sunday, an increase of about $2.6 million over last year, MDA officials said. Lythgoe told The Associated Press he thought the 85-year-old actor would show up either during the telecast or earlier to film a taped segment of his signature song Youll Never Walk Alone. I was fully expecting him to turn up at any point and join that six hours and Im sorry he didnt, Lythgoe told the AP. And hopefully another year he might. I mean, he knows that he is always welcome on the telethon. Its his baby. Associated PressCLARKSDALE, Miss. Its not the Heartbreak Hotel or the Ritz, and George Washington didnt sleep there. But The Riverside Hotel in Clarksdale is widely regarded as a history exhibit of blues music. And, oh yes. Muddy Waters did sleep there and Bessie Smith died there. Waters and other blues icons roomed at the Riverside from the 1940s to early 1960s as they made their names in clubs throughout the South. For decades before that, the building was a hospital that served black people during segregation, and it was there that Smith died after an auto accident in 1937. The former G.T. Thomas Hospital re-opened as the Riverside in 1944 and has established a loyal group of fans who love its authenticity as a bluesman hotel. Its a simple place: Rooms have single or double beds and there are bathrooms on each of the two floors, one for women and one for men. But theres no cable TV or Internet access. I run a nice, clean and comfortable place, the hotels owner, 71year-old Frank Rat Ratliff, said matter-of-factly. Mitch Goldstein, who manages the South African musical group Ladysmith Black Mambazo, extols the hotels simple authenticity and says Ratliff definitely underrates the propertys appeal. Its not just a museum, but it is a place that you can sleep in, said Goldstein, of Cedar Grove, N.J. Just to know that I spent a night in a room that Muddy Waters slept in is very cool. The two-story building consists of the original eight-room former hospital and additional rooms built on, for a total of 21 guest rooms. In 1943 my mother, Z.L. Ratliff Hill, bought the property and had it expanded, Ratliff recalled. She drew the plans of how she wanted it. Ratliff said his mother was a seamstress and arranged to rent the hospital, which was later renovated into the hotel by Thomas, the hospitals namesake. She later purchased the hotel from Thomas widow in the summer of 1957. The Ratliffs living quarters were the former hospitals rooms and offices, but some of those were made into guest rooms as well. All of the rooms are equipped with dressers and bed frames that have been around since the first day the doors opened as a hotel. Ratliff has also provided some creature comforts like a small refrigerator, microwave and a television. If I put new furniture or change the rooms, it would not appear to be the place the musicians stayed, Ratliff said. Thats the way the building was built. It stays like that. If I change it, I might as well close them doors because people want it that way. Blues fan and part-time musician Michael Waugh, of Lawrenceville, Ga., agrees. He brought his wife and two young children to spend the night there last December. I thought it was incredible, Waugh said. I am a huge fan of the blues and was looking for a blues experience. The Waughs spent the night in the room used by Waters, and while it took a little time to adjust to the shared bathroom idea, the family took it in stride. For me to play my guitar where Muddy Waters played is pretty special. It provides me a bigger connection to the music, said Waugh, who plans to return to the hotel this year, around the Christmas holidays. It costs between $65 and $70 per room, per night. This is a family business and I only go up on the fees when the taxes go up, Ratliff said. He also said the bluesmen who stayed at the hotel had their favorite rooms. And while he has no plans to label the rooms, he tells each guest the history of each room and the history of the musicians who stayed there. Ratliff said he gives each new guest a tour of the hotel and allows them to pick a room at check-in. When they return, they just go to their rooms, and if they leave something there, it is still there when they return, he said. Among the whos who of blues musicians who have spent time at the Riverside are Ike Turner, Robert Nighthawk, Sonny Boy Williamson II and, of course, Muddy Waters, who lived on the property for several years. The Blind Boys of Alabama also stayed there when passing through the state. My mother rented by the week and by the night, Ratliff said. She helped them out when they had no money. She fed them or gave them a place to stay when they was broke. And when they needed someone to co-sign on a loan, my mother did that. They always paid her back. But even with all that musical talent at the hotel, none of it rubbed off on either him or his mother. My mother loved music and tried to play piano. She bought a piano but just pecked on it. She even got me music lessons when I was a kid, but I was not musically inclined, Ratliff said, laughing. Ratliff, who worked for 23 years for Wonder Bread bakery, fully took over managing the hotel in 1997 when his mother died. Hes currently grooming his daughter, Zelina L. Ratliff, 40, to continue the tradition. Todays birthday: Your prominence among your peers is likely to be substantially accentuated and enhanced during the next year.

Dark Horse is among the films showing at the Venice Film Festival, which runs through Sept. 10. Solondz on Monday compared his latest film to American comedies like Knocked Up. Solondz described the film about a college dropout who is a mamas boy as being imbued with a kind of melancholy. Judge: Prince should pay $4M NEW YORK A New York court says Prince should pay almost $4 million to a perfume company that claimed he hobbled its efforts to market a perfume named for one of his albums.A court referee recommended a roughly $3.95 million award last week. The award would have to be confirmed by another judge. Princes lawyer hasnt responded to phone and email messages left Friday. He told the New York Law Journal the Purple Rain singer and songwriter would fight to keep the suggested award from being confirmed. Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics Inc. said it licensed the Minneapolis musicians name and likeness and the album title to market its fragrance in 2006. The Huntingdon Valley, Pa.-based company says Prince broke promises to help promote the scent after its July 2007 launch.

Points for endurance Associated Press Jean Nidetch, founder of Weight Watchers, is shown July 18 at her home in Parkland, Fla. Fifty years after Nidetch went on the diet that changed her life, she says she still lives by most of the ideals she espoused when she started the international weight loss group 50 y ears ago. At 87, Weight Watchers founder Jean Nidetch still keeps the pounds off M ATTS EDENSKY Associated Press PARKLAND, Fla. J ean Nidetch ambles down the hallway of the senior community where she lives, two cups of Coca-Cola teetering on her walker. In her one-bedroom apartment, there are Klondike bars in the freezer and, in the fridge, Baileys Irish Cream beside Chinese take-out. If these dont seem the trappings of the woman who founded Weight Watchers, dont be alarmed. At 87, Nidetch has earned some allowances. Besides, she says, she doesnt touch most of the stuff anyway. Fifty years after Nidetch went on the diet that changed her life, she says she still lives by most of the ideals she espoused when she started the international weight loss group 50 years ago at her New York City home. And among the many thousands of Weight Watchers leaders who have followed in her footsteps, her name alone still prompts wide eyes, rapt attention and unflinching reverence. David Kirchhoff, Weight Watchers current chief executive, says hell never forget when he finally met Nidetch, three years ago at a convention in Orlando. He introduced her to a crowd of Weight Watchers leaders who gasped, grabbed for cameras and rushed the stage. I felt like I was at a Rolling Stones concert, Kirchhoff said. The whole place just completely erupted. When Nidetch moved to Florida a few years ago, she found residents in her Broward County complex would whisper Thats her, as she passed. Shes grown to enjoy the attention. After all, people recognize her for doing something shes proud of. Nidetch struggled with her weight from an early age. As a child growing up in Brooklyn, she remembers struggling to squeeze out from her desk during a fire drill and by the time she was 38, in 1961, she was carrying 214 pounds on her 5-foot-7 frame. She had tried nearly everything, but decided to give a New York City Board of Health obesity clinic a shot. The tips she heard were simple: No skipping meals. Fish five times a week.

We are learning to be less cookie-cutter with our approaches and procedures, and to integrate different techniques both surgical and nonsurgical. The era of the pull the face tight and cut off the extra skin is gone. We dont want to overdo it. We are now looking for a more natural healthy look, and surgical and non-surgical techniques combined are able to achieve that. As in all aspects of medicine, there are always new concepts on the horizon, and a renaissance that occurs in the specialties, and this includes facial plastic surgery. The list of non-surgical techniques is long, and includes fillers that can camouflage lines and wrinkles that come from aging and sun damage. Also an important factor is there has always been a quest for beauty over the centuries, but it is defined in part by culture. Through the years, artists have tried to depict what they thought was beautiful. Poets and philosophers speak of what beauty is, and as we look back we can see in different cultures it means different things.

Flu season is on the horizon, and one case in particular has made a direct hit. In the past few days, a Florida resident died from the H1N1 virus (Swine Flu). No one is immune. Even healthy, active people are susceptible. Be proactive and get a flu shot. Your next thought is the belief you have plenty of time. Well, this may be true but flu season can hit early. There is no actual period of time or day, like Labor Day or Thanksgiving. Hurricane season has a predictable period of months, but no one ever knows if and when or where a hurricane will form or even strike. Its the same with flu season. Its all about preparation. Symptoms are fever, cough, sore throat, headache, chills, muscle aches and fatigue; however, other illnesses can mirror the flu. The flu is contagious and can be spread by coughing, sneezing or contact and anyone is susceptible.

disease. If all goes as planned, we hope to open the Center in about two years. This project results from a multi-year capital campaign project managed through Citrus Memorials Philanthropy Department and overseen by a 20-member Advisory Council made up of local business and community leaders. Therefore, the actual cost of this building that will house this project is provided by hundreds of donors giving charitably to Citrus Memorial, a 501(c)3 charitable organization. The Citrus Memorial Health System Cancer Resource Center will be roughly a 6,000 square-foot facility located on the Allen Ridge campus in Lecanto. It will offer a one-of-kind resource to cancer patients in Citrus County. When cancer strikes, it hits the whole family. Beyond medical treatment, the CMHS Cancer Resource Center will provide a full array of resources to meet patient and family needs. At the full-service Cancer Resource Center, a team of CMHS caregivers will provide assistance, answers, tools and resources for the entire family. Information about the physical, emotional and spiritual challenges that are common with this disease will also be provided. The Cancer Resource Center will also provide another critical service; they will help coordinate the inpatient and outpatient cancer services offered by Citrus Memorial Health Systems and its affiliated physicians and clinics. It takes patients closer to a seamless continuum of care beginning with education and screening, to diagnosis, through treatment, and after care issues for cancer patients. This Nurse-Navigator system will ensure patients are seen quickly, and treatment begins as fast as possible. This Center will be a wonderful addition to the health care services of our community. Plans for the Center include the following patient and family services: Cancer navigator program Developed to guide patients as they navigate through what is often a complex journey. Cancer support team This will include a clinical nurse specialist, chaplain, social worker, dietitian and a nurse education specialist. Cancer education and prevention Printed materials, books, videos, and computer resources will be available for patients. In addition, physicians, cancer survivors and their families, clergy, dietitians and others will be available to present educational programs or for one-on-one counseling and education. Cancer risk counseling service Specially trained staff members will assist in providing accurate information about cancer risk. Cancer and disease management One-on-one counseling and support that helps the recovery from a cancer diagnosis will be offered by all involved. Classes and support groups CMHS will offer a variety of support groups and classes to cancer patients and survivors. These will include support groups for prostate and breast cancer, as well as general cancer support groups. Financial and legal matters Financial counselors will be available to help cancer patients sort through the financial issues so that they can focus on treatment and recovery. As you can see, this will be an incredible asset for our community, and especially for our friends and family members who are battling cancer. Often, this trip is a maze, difficult to navigate, but with this resource, all cancer patients will benefit. With the leadership of the committee in place, including many local physicians and County Commissioner Dennis Damato, a cancer survivor himself, this project will be one that impacts many generations of our community. If you would like more information about this tremendous addition to health care in Citrus County, or would like to be a supporter of the Center, please call Chris Poole, director of philanthropy for Citrus Memorial Health System, at (352) 344-6560.

A colonoscopy detects this polyp and it can be removed. Of course, it will detect any cancer, too. If this polyp is removed, it can avoid development of colon cancer. Most colon cancers develop in persons above the age of 50. So it makes sense to do a colonoscopy once you turn 50 and look for polyps. It takes almost 10 years for a new polyp to form and develop into cancer. Therefore, if your first colonoscopy is negative like mine, you do not need another colonoscopy for 10 years. From 2003 to 2007, according to a new Vital Signs report from the CDC, every year, national death rates from colorectal cancer dropped by 3 percent. The national death rate fell from 19.0 per 100,000 populations to 16.7 per 100,000 during this span. Nationally, the incidence rate for newly diagnosed colorectal cancers was 45.4 per 100,000 in 2010, versus 52.3 in 2002. Colon cancer deaths are down significantly and even more progress is possible, declared CDC Director Thomas Frieden, MD, MPH, in a conference call with reporters. He attributed half of the decrease in deaths to increased screening in the target population. But in the report and during the telebriefing, CDC officials bemoaned the large number of people who should be screened regularly but who arent. According to the report, the screening rate in individuals 50 to 75 years old was 65 percent in 2010. Although this was a major increase from the rate of 52 percent seen in 2002, the CDC noted that it still indicates one-third of the target population is being missed. The CDC recommends that, starting at age 50, individuals be screened with any of three different approaches: annual fecal occult blood testing (FOBT), flexible sigmoidoscopy every five years plus FOBT every three years, or colonoscopy every 10 years. Frieden emphasized that screening exams are not only diagnostic but also preventive because they can identify and remove lesions at a precancerous stage. Frieden noted that he himself had recently turned 50 but that, because of a strong family history of colorectal cancer, he had obtained his first colonoscopy at age 40. In short, I strongly recommend everyone above age 50 to get a colonoscopy. There is no sense in finding excuses and do not procrastinate. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

What can you tell me about this? A: In June 2011, the FDA issued a Safety Announcement about drugs known as 5-alpha reductase inhibitors or 5-ARIs. Medications in this category include Proscar (finasteride), Propecia (finasteride), Avodart (dutasteride) and Jalyn (dutasteride plus tamsulosin). Proscar, Avodart and Jalyn are used to improve symptoms of an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH), while Propecia is used to treat male pattern hair loss. All of these drugs work by blocking the production of a hormone that stimulates prostate growth. The Safety Announcement warns about an increased risk of being diagnosed with a more serious form of prostate cancer (highgrade) in men taking 5-ARI drugs. This risk appears to be low, but health care providers and patients should be aware of this information and product labeling will be changed to reflect this risk. The new safety information is based upon the FDAs review of two large studies that looked at these drugs to see if they could reduce or prevent prostate cancer in approximately 27,000 men older than 50 years of age. Results from these studies, which lasted four to seven years, showed an overall reduction in prostate cancer of 23 percent to 26 percent in men taking 5-ARI drugs. These reductions, however, were limited to men with lowergrade prostate cancers. Both studies showed an increase in high-grade forms of prostate cancer in men taking the 5-ARI drugs. The FDA Safety Announcement wants health care professionals and patients to be aware of this increased risk of high-grade prostate cancer in men taking these medications, and provides important guidance on the interpretation of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests in patients taking 5-ARI drugs.

pieces of bread and two glasses of skim milk a day. More fruits and vegetables. The first week, she lost two pounds, but she dreaded going to meetings because of the way the clinics leader delivered information and how discussion seemed discouraged. I hate it here, she remembers a woman sitting next to her saying. So do I, she replied. So, in time, she began relaying the message to a group of friends that gathered in her living room. Friends brought friends and soon dozens were crowding in. A hallmark of Nidetchs group was sharing the dark secrets of compulsive eating with others who understood. She never thought of it as a business, but two of her participants Felice and Al Lippert convinced her otherwise and papers were drawn up in 1963 to make it official. Weight Watchers was born. The company grew fast and before Nidetch knew it, she was a recognizable face, sitting beside Johnny Carson on television or staring out from boxes in the frozen food aisle. Franchises were opened, a cookbook sold millions and by 1968, the company went public with adherents across the globe. By the time the companys 10th birthday came, it was so popular the occasion was marked with a massive gathering at Madison Square Garden, some 16,000 people in attendance, Bob Hope on stage and a snaking line waiting for her autograph. By the time Nidetch and the Lipperts decided to sell the company to H.J. Heinz Co. in 1978, it fetched about $71 million. Today, though, Nidetch lives simply. In a 2009 autobiography, The Jean Nidetch Story, she said, simply, Im not a millionaire anymore. Asked by a reporter recently, she said Maybe I am, I dont know. Though she has slowed a bit from her younger years, Nidetch is still feisty as ever, and is blunt when she boils down her advice to dieters: Drop the damn fork! she says. Nidetch, who is twice divorced, still maintains a touch of glamour from her higher-profile days, dying her wavy hair blond and wearing gold hoop earrings, a frilly red shirt and a white sweater on a recent visit. And she still keeps her weight steady, stepping on the scale regularly to make sure shes on target. She most recently weighed in at 142 pounds, precisely the goal weight she reached in 1962. She does allow some exceptions at her age. She drinks regular soda, not diet, because her doctor warned her away from artificial sweeteners. Much of the Weight Watchers-unfriendly foods in her house, she says, were brought by her son David and go untouched. Sometimes I have trouble getting her to eat, he said. Nidetch says she doesnt even crave the foods she once did, but that even if she did, she wouldnt touch them. When youve reached my age, she said, youve already decided how you want to live. As for breakfast, that most important meal of the day, which Nidetch always told her followers to make sure they ate? She skips it now, opting to rise late and start her day with lunch. Kirchhoff gasps when told, but admits shes allowed some leniency. At 87, Nidetch said, you have a right to sleep. POINTS Continued from Page C1 women and people with weakened immune systems can get much sicker. Even in this age of modern medicine, thousands die and even more are hospitalized every year due to the flu. Who should get the flu shot? You should. In fact everyone 6 years old and older should get the vaccine. When? Do it right now, or as soon as possible. An inactivated (killed) vaccine is given by an injection into the muscle. There is a higher dose inactivated vaccine that is available for those 65 years of age and older due to susceptibility. A live (weakened) flu vaccine is sprayed into the nose. Although it is rare to have an allergic reaction to a flu shot, those who have severe life-threatening allergies should not get a flu shot. The flu vaccines available right now protect against A/H1N1 flu, (swine flu), and two other viruses of the flu A/H3N2 AND influenza B. Call Nature Coast EMS today at (352) 249-4700 to check dates and times for our area flu clinics. We can even schedule a clinic at your location. You can also come by our education facility in Lecanto on Country Hill Drive behind the Crystal Glen subdivision any time 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday (except holidays). The cost of the flu shot is $25 and we accept cash, check, Visa and MasterCard. The flu shot is free with valid Medicare Part B, and many other insurance providers are also accepted. Take precautions now. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue. Wash your hands often and most importantly; stay home from work or school if youre sick! Take care and stay well!

LUCAS Continued from Page C1 adorning the face and neck area, as by piercings that are done with metal and bone, and rings to elongate the neck. The Greeks, on the other hand, had a different idea of beauty, and it was based on symmetry and proportions. As the United States, which is a relatively young country, evolves, we can see the cultural influences occurring at a much faster rate with our large immigration population. We still like to include proportions when depicting what the healthy ideal face should look like, and symmetry from left to right is important. Some of the ideals that do stand the test of time include: a small narrow chin, large eyes, and full lips for a female patient. Gone are the days of the small upturned nose that represented the influence of the European immigrants. Nowadays, we see larger noses as being not only acceptable, but beautiful, showing that we now have cultural influences from elsewhere in the world. In the past, patients came in with preconceived ideas and pictures of the type of nose and face that they wanted to have, but one look is not for everyone. Today. patients are much more educated and savvy. Patients come in, and are knowledgeable. Publications and the Internet provide quite a bit of information for them to prepare themselves, and they come in with specific requests and concerns. The first step is a consultation and analysis. A good trained facial plastic surgeon understands what age and sun do to the face, and how it can be overcome and improved on. For years, facelifts were the procedure of choice, and still rank in the top 10 as far as cosmetic surgeries. But since the seventies, facelifts have changed. They have become shorter, quicker, safer and better, and sometimes combined with non-surgical techniques such as fillers, to address areas that are possibly more difficult to improve with surgery and/or are dangerous to important structures in the head and neck area like nerves and blood vessels. Fillers are compatible with skin tissue and thats why they work so well. They do stimulate collagen formation, which is a product in the skin that diminishes with age, and reveals lines and defects that we dislike. It is important to work with the patient to develop an appropriate approach, taking into account their age, medical condition, and their physical and psychological needs. The goal ultimately is not to look like you have had surgery, but to appear more youthful, natural and healthy. Rejuvenated, so to speak. Facial cosmetic surgery and rejuvenation has come a long way, and will continue to do so, and evolve into a better process as time goes on. Combining tried and true procedures with new innovations is the cutting edge at this time. Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

I know I have written about the rewards of being a dentist in the past, but this last week reminded me again of this. It was about three months ago that I had a patient come to my office in search of someone to restore her mouth with a complete smile makeover. She had some teeth that were crooked, some that were discolored, some that had the edge of an old crown showing through like a black ring around the tooth. She also had old fillings that showed a shade of gray that was seen through the translucent part of the tooth and some where the root of the tooth showed as a result of recession. Needless to say, there were many issues to address. The great part about this patient was that she knew exactly what she wanted, down to the smallest detail. If you have been reading this column for any length of time, you know how valuable it is to have a list of what it is you want out from your dentist. This patient had her list and, thankfully, I was confident to tell her I could address every one of her issues. You probably also know that in a case such as this one, I always incorporate all of the desires into the temporaries for the patient so they can experience them firsthand before the final restoration in made. This is a great way for me know I will be making the patient happy when we are done, as well as the patient knowing they will be happy with the result before they get it. This method works incredibly well for both the patient and the dentist. As I usually do in a case such as this, the lower always gets finished first. When she had the lowers cemented in, she was so excited with the result that she couldnt wait for the uppers. When the day came to cement the uppers, it was amazing. You could see the excitement on her face. When she smiled, not only did it look great, but you could actually feel what she was feeling, and it was beyond explanation. I cannot tell you how great it is to be a part of a moment like this and to know that you have made such a difference in someones life. For this reason, among many others, I am so lucky to have chosen dentistry as my career. After 24 years, I still love going to work every day!Dr. Frank Vascimini is a Homosassa dentist.

The weeklong commemoration of Americas most important document is one of the countrys leastknown official observances. The Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain liberties and freedom, and to ensure inalienable rights to every American. The tradition of celebrating the Constitution was started many years ago by the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). In 1955, the Daughters petitioned Congress to set aside Sept. 17 to 23 annually to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week. The resolution was later adopted by the U.S. Congress and signed into law Aug. 2, 1956 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The aims of the celebration are to: emphasize citizens responsibilities for protecting and defending the Constitution, preserving it for posterity; inform the people that the Constitution is the basis for Americas great heritage and the foundation for our way of life; and encourage the study of the events that led to the framing of the Constitution in September 1787. DAR has served America for 121 years. In 1928, the Daughters began work on a building as a memorial to the Constitution. John Russell Pope, architect of the Jefferson Memorial, was commissioned to design the performing arts center, known as DAR Constitution Hall. Today, DAR Constitution Hall is the only structure erected in tribute to the Constitutiona. For more information about DAR and its programs, visit www.dar.org or call (202) 628-1776.

Special to the Beacon Friends of the Homosassa Library (FOL) are gearing up for the Fall Book Sale, according to Friends president Cherie Byrnes. Officers and board members recently met at Homosassa Public Library to begin making plans for the annual event, to be Nov. 12 and 13 during the Homosassa Arts, Crafts and Seafood Festival. They and other volunteers have begun to collect and sort book donations in preparation for the annual sale. Volunteers are needed to help sort and pack book donations and to help out at the sale; this involves sorting books at the receiving site for about an hour per week. For more information, call Byrnes at (352) 382-5388. Meanwhile, gently used books may be dropped off at the Homosassa Public Library. Both hardcover and paperback donations are welcome, but no magazines. As in the past, the Friends are not accepting Readers Digest Condensed Books, educational textbooks, book sets or encyclopedias. Experience has shown there is no market for these types of books. Byrnes also noted the Friends are not accepting records such as LP albums, but will accept media books, DVDs and CDs. All types of books in good condition are needed, such as fiction, nonfiction, childrens books and books about cooking, crafts, hobbies and gardening. Anyone unable to go to the library can call (352) 382-1918 to arrange for book pick-up. In those cases, it is requested that book donations be placed in plastic bags, if possible, so volunteers can more easily handle them. Byrnes urged everyone to donate books as soon as possible and not wait until the last minute. Book donations will be accepted through Nov. 4. The Friends rely on public support, not only for book donations, but also by purchasing books and materials at the November book sale. Funds derived from the annual book sale are used to purchase all types of library materials for the Homosassa Library. The next monthly meeting of the Friends will be at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7, in the Community Room of the library. All interested in learning about the various activities of the FOL, or in volunteering to help with the book collections and sale, is welcome.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, S EPTEMBER 6, 2011 C7 Ilka Chase, an actress and writer who died in 1978, said, You can always spot a well-informed man his views are the same as yours. It is ideal if you and your bridge partner are always in agreement about the meanings of bids and signals. It also helps if both of you spot the critical spots as South must do in this deal. How should the play proceed in three no-trump after West leads the heart king? In response to Souths two-notrump opening, even if three diamonds by North had been natural, not a transfer to hearts, it would have been an error. With no singleton or void, only show a long minor when you are thinking about a slam. Otherwise, either bid three no-trump or sign off in your suit. (Yes, I know five diamonds makes here, but that will not often be true.) South starts with seven top tricks. And after, say, a spade lead, the correct play would be to duck a round of diamonds to accommodate a 3-1 split. Here, though, West has struck at declarers Achilles heel. If South concedes a trick before he has nine in the bank, he will surely lose too many heart tricks. This means that declarer must assume the diamonds are dividing 2-2. But that is not all: if he is careless, the diamond suit will become blocked. After cashing his ace, South must lead the nine to dummys king. Then, when he gets the favorable split, he can continue with dummys eight to squash his six. He will end with at least 11 tricks and probably 12 when West discards a club on the diamond avalanche.

He takes 15 different prescription medications a day and has frequent doctor visits and testing. Our medical bills are through the roof. When credit card interest rates went up, we were unable to meet our monthly bills. We have cut out all extras, but we are still having major difficulties. Both of us have full-time jobs, and I work as much overtime as possible, but we are sinking. Bankruptcy is not an option because it wont leave us enough money to buy my husbands medicines, and we earn too much to qualify for government assistance. Last Christmas, we were unable to buy our teenage son a gift, but still made sure to get something for my husbands nieces and nephews because he refuses to tell his family of our problems. His parents are well off, and I have suggested to my husband that he ask them for some help, but he wont hear of it. I even recommended he borrow the money and pay them back with interest, but he doesnt want them involved. My parents are deceased, and my siblings have similar money problems. I know his parents read your column. Maybe they will see this and offer some help without questions because my husband is too prideful to ask. I am at my wits end. Sinking Fast Dear Sinking: Most parents would feel terrible if they were kept in the dark about a problem they could alleviate. In the meantime, your husband should check with his doctors office to see if they can offer assistance, and you can call the Information and Referral Service at 2-1-1 and explain the problem. It is also often possible to find free or reduced rates for medication directly through the drug manufacturers. Check their websites. Here are a few other suggestions: Needy Meds (needymeds.com); Partnership for Prescription Assistance (pparx.org); RxAssist and Rx Outreach Patient Assistance Programs (rxassist.org); Rx Hope (rxhope.com); and Together Rx Access (togetherrx access.com). Dear Annie: Our family has been invited to a reception celebrating the civil union of one of our cousins and her same-sex partner. My mother showed me the wedding card that she purchased for the occasion, which pictured the hands of a man and a woman. I questioned her about the card, and she said that the clerk in the store where she bought it told her it was appropriate. The clerk said that where two women formed a partnership, one of them would take on the role of the man. I am sure that our cousins partner is not a transsexual, and both would be offended if we called one of them a man. Am I wrong, or should my mother find another wedding card? Straight in Canada Dear Canada: Many gay couples might find this card insensitive. Since you believe your cousin and her partner would be unhappy with it, please suggest that Mom save this one for a different wedding and find another card that is specifically for gay couples or is gender neutral. It shouldnt be difficult. Dear Annie: This is in response to Theresa in Florida, whose husband is apprehensive about receiving a lung transplant. I received a lifesaving liver transplant 11 years ago and have been in excellent health since. Her husband can contact LifeLink Foundation for Western Florida in Tampa and Transplant Foundation of Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. I have volunteered for both. They offer meetings for pre-transplant patients and will help answer any questions her husband has. He can also meet others who have already undergone this transplant. I have met lung transplant recipients, and I am sure they would tell him to have the surgery without hesitation. Craig in Sarasota Dear Craig: Our thanks to you and all who wrote with words of encouragement. We hope Theresa and her husband will look into your recommendations.
