At 1 a.m. Sunday, the sheriffs office was called because a man had been shot in the chest. Deputies were called to an area near Citrus Springs Boulevard and East Noah Lane, according to Heather Yates, spokeswoman for the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Deputies responded to find the victim, Fredrick Drew, 18, of Inverness, non-responsive, Yates said. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. Yates said a preliminary investigation revealed a large gathering had occurred at the site in Citrus Springs. She said a fight broke out involving many people and shots had been fired. After detectives identified a suspect in Drews shooting, deputies arrested the suspect without incident early Sunday morning at his Crystal River home. As the suspect was arrested as a juvenile, the Chronicle is withholding his identity. Drew was a graduate of Citrus High School. According to Frederick Drew 2011 graduate of Citrus High School.

Teamsters Local 79 union steward Kim Morrison said bus driver Gayle Bardsley filed a grievance after school district officials recommended she be fired after the Aug. 25 incident. Bardsley was suspended without pay at the school boards Sept. 13 meeting pending dismissal. That action is tentatively scheduled for the Oct. 11 school board, meeting though Bardsley could challenge the dismissal and receive a hearing. Morrison said he didnt know the status of the grievance. He said the case is not set for arbitration because Bardsley hasnt lost her job yet. Bardsley, who was hired in 2004 and has a spotless personnel record, said Sunday she was called to a meeting this Tuesday at the school district administrative offices but she doesnt know why. They told me they wanted to see me before the Oct. 11 board meeting, Bardsley said. Bardsley had completed her single run the morning of Aug. 25 and returned to the Crystal River bus garage. Supervisor Vickie Strickland told her she had been selected that morning A.B. SIDIBE /For the Chronicle Jim Burns gets his regular a long Dixie dog with fresh lemonade during a lunch break. Dixie doggers know where to go for tasty treats T o hear Gene Christie tell it, a must-stop diversion in his regular trips to Hernando County is for a little piece of Dixie. The Pennsylvania transplant discovered Fosters Dixie Dog stand in Howards Flea Market 31 years ago when he moved here to work at the nuclear plant. I would say I go at least a couple of times a month, Christie said. Dixie Dog has somewhat of a cult-like following for those who love the long and the short of it. The owners swear there is a distinction between the Dixie dog and its cousin the corn dog and its all in the batter and a wellguarded family secret recipe. The batter is made out of flour and that is all I am going to say, co-manager Frank Foster Jr. offered. Foster said the recipe has been in the Foster family for more than 70 years, unchanged and an apparent lure for addicted Dixie doggers. Jim Burns recently made a quick dash for his regular long dog, bathed in mustard with glass of lemonade during his lunch break. The dogs come in two sizes long or short and can be slathered with your choice of ketchup or mustard. For Burns order, the bill came to $3. This is a great place. I come every opportunity I get. The food is good and its affordable, Burns added. Frank Foster Jr., 38, co-manages the business with his brother, Robert Foster, 35. Their father, Frank Foster Sr. who A.B.

Sunday was the start of the inaugural Nature Cost All Veterans Reunion. The event will run through Sunday, Oct. 9, at Holcim Ranch. Post American Legion Post 225 in Floral City and the Aaron Weaver Chapter 776 Order of the Purple Heart sponsors of the event. Veterans kick off reunion week with parade across county C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterLike a family get-together, veterans met people they knew. Citrus County Commissioner JJ Kenney bumped into his brother, which he expected, and told him hed just talked to someone from his old unit, which he didnt expect. For that kind of experience alone, the inaugural Nature Coast All Veterans Reunion on Sunday served a good purpose. It had other reasons to happen, too. About 1,000 motorcycle riders were expected at the Citrus County Fairground in Inverness. The bikes kept roaring in from 7:30 a.m. to get into formation and grab coffee and a donut. Veterans were forming an honor guard to escort four separate memorials: Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall, Purple Heart Mural Memorial, Korean War Memorial and Some Gave All Inc., for those lost in Iraq, Afghanistan and 9/11. See TRIBUTES / Page A2 Moving tributes American flags waved as residents along with Gabe Donovan and his dog Hunter waited Sunday for the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall and other memorials to make their way through Inverness.

the Citrus County School District, counselors will be available Monday at local schools. The Chronicle contacted some people who knew Drew, but they were too upset to speak. Because of his athleticism, Drew was featured regularly on the Chronicle s sports pages. In May 2010, a Chronicle sports writer called Drew a triple threat for his prowess in football, wrestling and weightlifting. Even though Drew dropped a 305-pound barbell on his chest during a sectional event, he stayed in the competition to advance to the state weightlifting meet, where he claimed a sixth-place finish in the 169pound weight class. Drew told the Chronicle he would one day love to play football at the next level for his father to get to see it. Hes a big football guy, Drew said of his dad Joe. He loves football. Id love to see my dad one day be like, Thats my son there on TV. In wrestling, Citrus wrestling coach Mike Porcelli called Drew one of our stalwarts. Of his three sports, Drew was reported to be strongest in the weight room. Coach Wendell Chop Alexander said, I think the skys the limit because Fred wants to work hard. Drew was a nominee for the 2010 Chronicle Male Athlete of the Year. Detectives are interviewing witnesses to the event and asking for the publics help in gathering information. Call Detective Gary Atchison at (352) 249-2720 if you have any information related to the incident. You may also call the sheriffs office at 911 or (352) 7261121, or you can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers of Citrus County at (888) ANY-TIPS.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at (352) 564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com. The escort also worked as a veterans parade across the county. At 10 a.m., memorials and riders set off east on State Road 44 to U.S. 19 in Crystal River, where they turned north to their destination: Holcim Ranch in Red Level, where the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall would be set up for the week. Many riders came in, many chapters from Rolling Thunder, AmVets from Inglis, Shriners from Tampa, a SeaBees unit from Pinellas County, Patriot Riders from around the state and Combat Motorcycle Veterans, among many groups and individuals who turned out. Or all of the above, said Richard Hunt, reunion chairman. Every branch of service, including U.S. Coast Guard and Disabled American Veterans, had representatives present. Many vehicles flew colors to show participation. Weve got a lot of people from a lot of places, Hunt said. The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall, owned by the Vietnam and All Veterans of Brevard Inc. of Cocoa, is a three-fifths scale of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C. It stands six feet tall at the center and covers almost 300 feet from end to end. The replica offers the opportunity for those who cant travel to Washington, D.C., to honor those who have fallen. The traveling wall, according to its exhibitors, stands as a reminder of the great sacrifices made during the Vietnam War. It was made to help heal and rekindle friendships. Like the original, the wall records the names of more than 58,000 of the fallen. The traveling memorial wall arrived in a large truck that held each panel in order for reconstruction. It would help raise funds for American Legion Herbert Surber Post 225 of Floral City to build a post home. At present, the post meets at the New Testament Baptist Church in Floral City. Its going to cost us in the vicinity of $10,000 to have it (the memorial wall) here for a week, said Lee Helscel, with Post 225. American Legion Post 225 is trying to enhance our building fund. Hunt said some costs were being covered by private donations and grants. Funds will be raised by the sale of event memorabilia T-shirts, pins and patches plus coffee and donuts before Sundays parade and the beer concession Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Holcim Ranch, which offered the use of the property for free. The Holcim Corporation is very community spirit oriented, Helscel said. They are trying to do more to promote Citrus County. We are hoping to make this an annual event. Holcim is trying to bring in event money to the county and support the legion at the same time. They have bent over backward to help us. Radio station WXJB also showed support with announcements and had the event coordinators as guests on programs, Helscel said. Once the parade arrived at Holcim Ranch, veterans crowded round the truck containing the panels to the Vietnam War memorial. In pairs, men and women withdrew the panels and put the pieces together. Organizers have invited schools to bring children to see the memorials. The site will be open for free all week. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, programs will include live music, military displays, veterans information and services, food, beer and other vendors. Holcim Ranch is seven miles north of Crystal River on U.S. 19. For more information, go to www.NatureCoast VeteransReunion.org. Call Richard Hunt, reunion chairman, at (407) 579-6190.

Honor Flight event a success N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS At 6 a.m., people were waiting at the door of Beef O Bradys in Inverness on Sunday to eat pancakes and sausage to help support the upcoming Honor Flights and they kept on coming. Wow, said Barbara Mills, event organizer. Wow. Im very overwhelmed, very appreciative, honored, thankful. What a great community. Many who attended were part of the motorcycle escort for the All Veterans traveling memorials, stopping by before they were to meet at the county fairgrounds. Mills said $9,000 is needed to cover the costs of the World War II veterans Honor Flight expenses coming up Oct. 27 and 29. By 9:30 a.m. Sunday, she estimated they raised about $2,000. Tamara Berry, Beef O Bradys owner, donated all the food for Sundays breakfast, plus some of her employees cooked and served. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at (352) 564-2927 or nkennedy @chronicleonline.com. Committee works to fund Honor Flights for WWII veterans D OUG L OBEL Special to the ChronicleDuring World War II, from 1942 to 1945, Army Air Corp B-17 Bomber Pilot Iric Emerson flew 35 missions over Germany and only had to ditch one aircraft in the ocean when they could not get the flack-damaged plane back to home base. Now Iric is going on another mission, but he will be flying as a passenger rather than the pilot. Iric, 94, is scheduled to fly to Washington, D.C., as one of the 70 World War II veterans who was selected to spend the day in the nations capital as a guest of Citrus County Honor Flight that is part of West Central Florida Honor Flight, which is organizing the Oct. 29 flight out of St. Petersburg/Clearwater Airport in Pinellas County. The Steering Committee for Citrus County Honor Flight headed by Operation Welcome Home founder Barbara Mills of RE/MAX Realty One and includes County Commissioner Winn Webb, Inverness Mayor Bob Plaisted, New Church Without Walls Pastor Doug Alexander, Crystal River City Councilman Mike Guidis and Inverness Rotarian Doug Lobel committed to raise the $400 per veteran to pay for any Citrus County WWII veteran to make theflight to Washington, D.C., which includes paying for thebuses rented to tour the capital and ultimately to take the veterans to see the World War II Memorial. To donate, drop off a check made out to Citrus County Honor Flight, at any of the five Capital City Banks in Citrus County or mail the check to Capital City Bank, 1500 N. U.S. 41 Inverness, FL 34450.

DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Riders hit the trail at 7 a.m. Sunday to take part in the Withlacoochees 16th annual Rails to Trails Bike Ride. More than 1,00 0 riders attended the event to raise money for upkeep on the 46-mile trail. The cool weather that rolled in the area overnight was a pleasant sur prise to many taking part in the event. S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterThe Citrus County Port Authority Board will travel next week to Port Manatee for a tour of the port. Comprised of Citrus County Board of County Commissioners, the port authority will look at how Port Manatee functions to give board members a stronger background in planning to develop Port Citrus on the barge canal north of Crystal River. Board members JJ Kenney, Winn Webb, Dennis Damato, Joe Meek and Rebecca Bays will set out in separate vehicles early next Wednesday for a scheduled tour of Port Manatee on the south side entrance to Tampa Bay in Manatee County. They were mindful of observing the Sunshine Law when they decided to travel separately. Two or more members traveling together could indicate a meeting that would need to be open to the public. Staff members also will take part in the tour. They include County Administrator Brad Thorpe, County Attorney Richard Wesch and county spokeswoman Lindsay Ubinas. The fifth largest deepwater seaport in Florida, Port Manatee serves cargo ships. It handles about 9 million tons of cargo each year. Products imported through the port include petroleum products, cement products, forestry products, fruit and natural gas. Products exported include fertilizer and automobiles. Orange juice is imported and exported. Port Manatee has connections to Interstate 4, Interstate 75, Interstate 275, U.S. 41, U.S. 19 and U.S. 301. It also connects to CSX rail lines. The Port Citrus Board is in the process of putting together a request for qualifications (RFQ) for performing a feasibility study for Port Citrus. The aim of the RFQ process is to hire the most qualified persons to conduct the feasibility study, not the lowest bidder. The next meeting of the Port Citrus Authority has yet to be determined. Thorpe said the next meeting would be set when the RFQ could be discussed. Port Citrus members also will attend the Florida Ports Council annual meeting Nov. 2 and 3 in Miami. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at (352) 564-2916 or cvanormer @chronicleonline.com. Citrus board to tour Port Manatee Officials to see functions involved in operating a port off Gulf coast Locals riding the trails Bail set for man accused of shooting deputy Associated PressTAMPA A judge on Sunday set a $65,000 bail for a former Marine accused of shooting a Tampa Bay-area sheriffs deputy, but it was revoked for 24 hours after the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office appealed. Matthew Lane Buendias bail was set at his arraignment Sunday for $25,000 on a charge of attempted murder of a law enforcement officer, $30,000 on two battery charges and $10,000 on a witness tampering charge. We were not happy about that, said Detective Larry McKinnon, the sheriffs office spokesman. Buendia will appear in court Monday to have his bail reviewed. The sheriffs office wants him to be held without bond. Buendia was arrested early Saturday following a standoff at his Tampa apartment complex. According to the sheriffs office, Buendia shot Deputy Lyonelle De Veaux late Friday after she responded to a 911 call. De Veaux, a five-year veteran of the department, was hit twice in the leg and once in the shoulder, the sheriffs office said. She was hospitalized in good condition and is expected to recover. Among the officers who visited De Veaux on Saturday was Deputy Miguel Galarza, a member of her squad who was shot in the neck in 2009 while responding to a home invasion. He returned to work two weeks later. Im sure the hardest part for her will be to stop reliving it and trying to think of what could have been done better, Galarza said. But work helps. The battery and witness tampering charges stem from an alleged incident with Buendias girlfriend. Buendia was being held at the Hillsborough County jail. Buendias relatives told television news reporters the 24-year-old suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder following three tours of duty in the Middle East. Hes an excellent person. This is not like him at all, said Zach Buendia, his brother. Weve tried to get him help, but the VA couldnt give him the help he needed. Richard Buendia said the military didnt help his son make the adjustment to civilian life. Let me just put it this way. They train him for war and they do a good job in the Marines doing that, and in times of need thats great, but they dont teach them to come down off of it after theyre out, Richard Buendia said. I dont think he understands what had happened to be honest with you. I feel awful. I havent slept right, worried about the officer, worried about my son. Hes a good young man, never been in any kind of problems at all. Former Marine jailed; deputy still in hospital Special to the Chronicle Citrus County Sheriffs Sgt. Brad Smith hit the ground running when he returned to Citrus County after graduating from the 246th session of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Va. The week before last, Smith quickly immersed himself in his role as sheriffs office operations sergeant for the east side of the county, working closely with Capt. Buddy Grant, who serves as the east side commander. The FBI National Academy program is a course of study for U.S. and international law enforcement professionals that serves to improve the administration of justice in law enforcement agencies at home and abroad, and raises law enforcement standards, knowledge and cooperation worldwide. The academys mission is to support, promote and enhance the personal and professional development of law enforcement leaders by preparing them for complex, dynamic and contemporary challenges through innovative techniques, facilitating excellence in education and research, and forging partnerships throughout the world. For 10 classroom-hour weeks, four times a year, classes of some 250 officers take undergraduate and/or graduate college courses at the FBI Academy campus in the following disciplines: law, behavioral science, forensic science, understanding terrorism/terrorist mindsets, leadership development, communication and health/fitness. Officers participate in a wide range of leadership and specialized training. They share ideas, techniques and experiences with one another, creating lifelong partnerships that span state and national lines. The Yellow Brick Road is the final test of the fitness regimen. It consists of a 6.1mile run through a hilly, wooded trail built by the U.S. Marines. Along the way, participants are challenged to climb over walls, run through creeks, jump through simulated windows, scale rock faces by rope, crawl under barbed wire in muddy water, maneuver across a cargo net and much more. Students who complete the test receive an actual yellow brick to commemorate their achievement. The FBINA was an amazing experience and certainly a highlight of my career, Smith said, especially with the exemplary academic instruction, intense physical fitness training and networking opportunities I received.

A neighbor told another neighbor, Todd Eckerd, about the fire. Eckerd was reported to have entered the burning residence to rescue both dogs. Citrus County Fire Rescue responded, with the firstfire engine arriving 19 minutes later to a fully involved single-family wood frame residence. Because of the severity of the fire, the incident commander ordered a defensive attack. Additional engines from Homosassa, Rock Crusher Road, Pine Ridge, and Kensington Avenue fire stations provided additional equipment and staff. The Citrus Springs station and the Crystal River Volunteer Fire Department responded with tankers for additional water supply. The fire was contained to the original structure. The residence was totally destroyed by the fire, according to the official report. The estimated value of the structure was $49,000 and the contents were estimated at $24,000. It is unknown if the residence was insured. The American Red Cross was contacted to provide assistance to the residents. No injuries were reported. The dogs were being cared for by a neighbor. All fire units left the fire scene about two hours later. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at (352) 564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com.

for random drug screening. Bardsley asked to be tested immediately because she said she had a dental appointment at the Citrus County Health Department for her 7-year-old grandson, who is in her legal care. She said the appointment was scheduled five months earlier. Strickland told Bardsley the drug-screening technician had not yet arrived. Bardsley said she waited as long as they could, and then left. Bus drivers, mechanics and some maintenance workers are subject to random, mandatory drug screening. Anyone who refuses a drug test is considered to have a positive test result. School board policy says a positive test results in discipline up to termination, though it does not require termination. Bardsley said Sunday shes heard nothing but positive comments from people in the community. I hear from an extreme amount of people, she said. They cant believe its gotten to this point.

Officials in Savannah said they do not want bras displayed on a city street even if the goal is to raise breast cancer awareness. City Manager Rochelle Small-Toney told council members officials weighed the campaign with the appropriateness of hanging underwear across one of our main streets. The Savannah Morning News reported local radio stations wanted residents to donate bras that would be strung across Broughton Street at four major intersections. Officials said a local car dealer had agreed to donate $1 for each bra up to $5,000. Caroline Keller, the board president of the local chapter of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, said similar campaigns have been conducted in other cities without problems. Fire-ant delayNEESES, S.C. Football games have been postponed by heavy rains, lightning, power outages: and now, fire ants. A game in South Carolina was postponed Friday after the referee decided the field was unplayable because of fire ants. Referee Steve Hook said he found 15 to 20 large, active fire ant mounds shortly before the game. Hook said he was worried about players, coaches and officials. Bruce Hulion with the South Carolina High School League said officials properly handled the safety issue. The home team, Hunter-Kinard-Tyler, tried digging up the ant piles and pouring salt on them before the game was postponed. The field was deemed ready Monday night. Calhoun County beat the home team 19-8. Nude car washer ATTLEBORO, Mass. A man who scrubbed his pickup truck in the nude at a Massachusetts car wash has been sentenced to a year of probation. Robert E. Bailey, of Cumberland, R.I., pleaded guilty on Monday to open and gross conduct for being naked at Economy Car Wash in North Attleborough on May 31. The Sun Chronicle reported a woman vacuuming her vehicle at the business called police after she saw the 65-year-old Bailey in the nude. Police say Bailey was wearing shorts by the time they arrived at the scene and denied doing anything wrong. A judge also ordered Bailey to stay away from the car wash and the witness and to continue counseling. He will also be required to register as a sex offender.Cutting costs ELLWOOD CITY, Pa. Police said a western Pennsylvania couple desperate for money to pay for their wedding netted just $18 for the stolen copper wire they cut from more than a dozen utility poles. North Sewickley police said 23-year-old Joseph Russell and 24-year-old April Cater cut down the wires Aug. 9, four days before their wedding. Russell said he was desperate for money because hed just lost his job and lost a $1,000 deposit after his reception hall abruptly closed down. Sgt. Jeff Bezce said the couple clearly expected to get more money than they got from the scrap where they sold the copper. Russell told WPXI-TV he would pay for the damages. Utility officials said it will cost about $400 to repair the 18 poles that were damaged. Not above law LODI, N.J. A New Jersey police chief says no one is above the law not even his wife. Lodi Police Chief Vincent Caruso ordered an officer to ticket his wife after she double parked while dropping off their 5-year-old son at school. Caruso told The Record newspaper he didnt want her to get any special treatment because of who she is. The chief paid the $54 ticket. Its not the first time for Paula Caruso. The chief ordered another officer to ticket her two years ago after she forgot to move their vehicle for street cleaning. The chief told the newspaper he loves his wife and shes very busy driving their four sons around. From wire reports Kids go unvaccinated More than 1 in 10 parents skip, delay shots L INDSEY T ANNER AP Medical WriterCHICAGO By age 6, children should have vaccinations against 14 diseases, in at least two dozen separate doses, the U.S. government advises. More than 1 in 10 parents reject that, refusing some shots or delaying others mainly because of safety concerns, a national survey found. Worries about vaccine safety were common even among parents whose kids were fully vaccinated: 1 in 5 among that group said they think delaying shots is safer than the recommended schedule. The results suggest more than 2 million infants and young children may not be fully protected against preventable diseases, including some that can be deadly or disabling. The nationally representative online survey of roughly 750 parents of kids age 6 and younger was done last year and results were released online Monday in the journal Pediatrics. They are in line with a larger federal survey released last month, showing at least 1 in 10 toddlers and preschoolers lagged on vaccines that included chickenpox and the measles-mumps-rubella combination shots. That survey, also for 2010, included more than 17,000 households. The Pediatrics survey follows other recent news raising concerns among infectious disease specialists, including a study showing the whooping cough vaccine seems to lose much of its effectiveness after just three years faster than doctors have thought perhaps contributing to recent major outbreaks, most notably in California. Also, data reported in September show a record number of kindergartners parents in California last year used a personal belief exemption to avoid vaccination requirements. Kandace ONeill is a Lakeville, Minn., mom whose views are shared by many parents who dont follow federal vaccine advice. Her 5-year-old son has had no vaccinations since he turned 1, and her 7-monthold daughter has received none of the recommended shots. I have to make sure that my child is healthy, and I do not want to put medications in my child that I think are going to harm them, said ONeill, who was not involved in the survey appearing in Pediatrics. ONeill said shes not an extreme anti-vaccine zealot. She just thinks parents not doctors or schools should make medical decisions for their children. Study author Dr. Amanda Dempsey, a pediatrician and researcher at the University of Michigan, said vaccine skepticism is fueled by erroneous information online and media reports that sensationalize misconceptions. These include the persistent belief among some parents about an autism-vaccine link despite scientific evidence to the contrary and the debunking of one of the most publicized studies that first fueled vaccine fears years ago. Some parents also dismiss the severity of vaccinepreventable diseases because theyve never seen a child seriously ill with those illnesses. But vaccine-preventable diseases including flu and whooping cough can be deadly, especially in infants, said Dr. Buddy Creech, associate director of Vanderbilt Universitys Vaccine Research Program. Creech has two school-aged children who are fully vaccinated and a newborn he said will be given all the recommended vaccinations. From being someone in the trenches seeing children die every year from influenza and its complications ... I would not do a single thing to risk the health of my kids, he said. Creech has served on advisory boards for vaccine makers and has accepted their research money. Dempsey, the surveys lead author, has been a paid adviser to Merck on issues regarding a vaccine for older children but said that company made no contributions to the survey research. Knowledge Networks conducted the survey, which had an error margin of plus or minus 5 percentage points. Dr. Larry Pickering, an infectious disease specialist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said the new survey is important and well done, and indicates doctors need to do a better job of communicating vaccine information to patients. Pickering said he supports the idea of parents being actively involved in medical care for their children, but cautioned: If theyre going to do that, they need to be fully informed about the risks and benefits of vaccines and need to obtain the information from a valid source. The CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Family Physicians are among groups that provide online vaccine information based on medical research.

Gwen Yearwood, 73SINGERS MOTHER NASHVILLE, Tenn. Gwen Yearwood, the mother of country music performer Trisha Yearwood and the co-author of two recently published cooking books with her daughter, has died at age 73. Yearwood died early Saturday morning in Tifton, Ga., after a long fight with cancer. A statement to the Associated Press says Trisha Yearwood and her sister Beth were by their mothers side when she died. The family is deeply appreciative of the care and concern theyve received throughout this journey, the statement said. Gwen Yearwood, a teacher who lived in Monticello, Ga., for much of her life, wrote two cookbooks with her daughters: Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen, released in 2008, followed by Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood, issued in 2010. Trisha Yearwood, a Grammy-winning singer, was among country musics most popular acts before going into semi-retirement with her husband Garth Brooks in Oklahoma. She continues to be a popular draw when she performs and said recently she hopes soon to hit Broadway when her stepchildren are all in college. The family statement thanked well-wishers and asked expressions of sympathy be directed to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which helps fund breast cancer research, in Gwen Yearwoods name.Robert Whitaker, 71PHOTOGRAPHER LONDON Photographer Robert Whitaker, who shot some of the most famous and infamous images of The Beatles, has died at the age of 71. Whitakers friend, photo archivist Dave Brolan, said he died of cancer Sept. 20 in Sussex, southern England. Whitaker took scores of well-known pictures of The Beatles, including the controversial butcher cover of the 1966 American album Yesterday and Today. The image of the Fab Four in white coats surrounded by decapitated dolls and slabs of raw meat proved too strong for record company Capitol, which ordered the cover withdrawn soon after the albums release. The record was rereleased with an inoffensive picture of the band sitting on a steamer trunk. Originals are coveted by collectors and can sell for thousands of dollars. Whitaker a fan of surrealism later said the image was a meditation on fame and an attempt to shake up the bands image, inspired by a dream about The Beatles being ripped to shreds by all these young girls when they came out of a stadium. Born in Harpenden, southern England in 1939, Whitaker emigrated to Australia in his early 20s and was working as a photographer in Melbourne when The Beatles visited the country in 1964. He was assigned to photograph manager Brian Epstein for the Jewish News; Epstein was so impressed with the resulting image of himself adorned with peacock feathers that he offered Whitaker a job as staff photographer for his company, NEMS. The job involved photographing Merseybeat acts including Cilla Black and Gerry & The Pacemakers, as well as capturing The Beatles onstage, backstage, in planes and hotel rooms and all manner of locations over more than two years. He covered the bands final world tour in 1966 and took the pictures used on the collage-style cover of the Revolver album. After parting company with The Beatles, Whitaker photographed Mick Jagger on the sets of the films Performance and Ned Kelly, helped create the psychedelic cover for Creams Disraeli Gears album and worked on the influential underground magazine Oz. Increasingly wary of being pigeonholed as a pop photographer, Whitaker moved into news, covering the Vietnam War and other conflicts for publications including Time and Life. He also spent time photographing his artistic hero, Salvador Dali. In the 1970s, he moved to the English countryside, where he farmed and raised cattle. He is survived by his wife, Sue, and three children. Funeral details were not immediately available. From wire reports

Associated PressCOPENHAGEN, Denmark Denmark has imposed a fat tax on foods such as butter and oil as a way to curb unhealthy eating habits. The Nordic country introduced the tax Saturday, of 16 kroner ($2.90) per kilogram of saturated fat in a product. Ole Linnet Juul, food director at Denmarks Confederation of Industries, said the tax will increase the price of a burger by around $0.15 and raise the price of a small package of butter by around $0.40. The tax was approved by large majority in a parliament in March as a move to help increase the average life expectancy of Danes. Denmark, like some other European countries, already has higher fees on sugar, chocolates and soft drinks, but Linnet Juul said he believes the Nordic country is the first in the world to tax fatty foods. In September, Hungary introduced a new tax popularly known as the Hamburger Law, but that only involves higher taxes on soft drinks, pastries, salty snacks and food flavorings. The outgoing conservative Danish government planned the fat tax as part of a goal to increase the average life expectancy of Danes, currently below the OECD average at 79 years, by three years over the next 10 years. Linnet Juul said the tax mechanism is very complex. Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. Across the street from the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, a foreboding tower of shipping containers glowers at the building spelling out an in-your-face message: IOU. On the other side: USA. The 65-foot-high structure by artist John Salvest is made up of 117 carefullyaligned cargo and storage containers the kind that ply the worlds rivers and oceans carrying everything from Hyundais to Happy Meal toys. The piece is creating a buzz in Kansas City as debate about the national deficit surfaces as a key theme of the upcoming presidential race and budget shortfalls are the top concern in the nations statehouses. The artist behind it says the message is open to interpretation. But the symbolism of shipping containers stacked tall in the shadow of the citys Federal Reserve building can be taken as a slap at a government groping for ways out of its debts. Obviously, the inspiration was the national debt problem, Salvest said in a telephone interview from his home in Jonesboro, Ark., where he teaches at Arkansas State University. But that trickles down into a lot of peoples lives, and I think a lot of people are frustrated or angry or worried about their economic well-being. He added: Some people are offended by it. One woman said I feel its nothing but a big waste of money. Some have sent me really sweet emails about how it really moved them. Since the piece went up earlier this month, there have been more than 50 visitors a day, said Stacy Switzer, artistic director of Grand Arts, the nonprofit Kansas City gallery and sculpture studio that funded the project. Weve gotten everything from When is that ugly thing coming down? to people coming out of the Feds Money Museum saying they may not like the looks of it, but they understand it, Switzer said. Switzer would not say how much the project cost. But she said with renting the containers, hiring a crane to put them in place, paying for round-the-clock security to make sure no one climbs the structure or tags it with graffiti, it is definitely one of our biggest projects. The IOU side faces the Federal Reserves new building and is fully visible to employees from windows looking directly out on to the park. Bill Medley, spokesman for the Kansas City Fed, said the bank is not commenting. Salvest described an installation process that required NASA launch-like precision to line up the containers and bomb-sniffing dogs sent over by the Kansas City Fed to ensure the containers were safe. So far, the piece has generated discussion, but no incidents. Michael Mikkelsen, 29, of Kansas City, was among fans of the piece. Mikkelsen was taking part in a protest against the Federal Reserve at the site Friday and said he was excited when he heard the IOU/USA piece was coming to Kansas City. The artworks awesome, Mikkelsen said. I think it helps people to like look into the Fed more and understand what theyre doing. The way the Fed creates money, theyre creating money out of debt instead of having sound money where theyre encouraging savings. The work, which comes down in mid-October, goes beyond the anger and rhetoric circulating out there and makes us think about what it means to be in our economic situation, said Jan Schall, curator of modern and contemporary art at the NelsonAtkins Museum of Art in Kansas City. Its a very complex work, she said. To me, with one sculptural, monumental-sized installation piece a whole flood of ideas is released for our consideration. Long road from farm to fork worsens food outbreaks Associated PressWASHINGTON The recent listeria outbreak from cantaloupe shows large-scale occurrences of serious illnesses linked to tainted food have grown more common through the years, partly because much of what we eat takes a long and winding road from farm to fork. A cantaloupe grown on a Colorado field may make four or five stops before it reaches the dinner table. Theres the packing house where it is cleaned and packaged, then the distributor who contracts with retailers to sell the melons in large quantities. A processor may cut or bag the fruit. The retail distribution center is where the melons are sent out to various stores. Finally its stacked on display at the grocery store. Imported fruits and vegetables, which make up almost two-thirds of the produce consumed in the United States, have an even longer journey. Increasingly with agribusiness you have limited producers of any given food, so a breakdown in a facility or plant or in a large field crop operation exposes thousands because of the way the food is distributed, said Dr. Brian Currie, an infectious disease specialist at Montefiore Medical Center in New York. The Colorado cantaloupe crop thats linked to 84 illnesses and as many as 17 deaths in 19 states has traveled so far and wide producer Jensen Farms doesnt even know exactly where their fruit ended up. The company said last week it cant provide a list of retailers that sold the tainted fruit because the melons were sold and resold. It named the 28 states where the fruit was shipped, but people in other states have reported getting sick. A Kansas-based processor that purchased cantaloupes from Jensen, Carols Cuts, didnt provide a notice to its customers that it had sold the farms cantaloupes until nine days after the original recall. The food chain is very complex, said Sherri McGarry, a senior adviser in the Food and Drug Administrations Office of Foods. There are many steps, and the more steps there are the harder it can be to link up each step to identify what the common source of an outbreak is. Fewer and larger farms and companies dominate food production in the country. That has driven some consumers to seek out farmers markets and locally grown produce. Supermarkets now highlight food grown nearby, while farmers markets have soared in popularity. But many in the produce industry have come together to try and improve the ability to quickly trace food from field to plate. This is good business. Large recalls, such as spinach in 2006, peanuts in 2009 and eggs in 2010, tend to depress sales for an entire product industry, even if only one company or grower was responsible for the outbreak. Recent outbreaks of salmonella in peanuts and eggs, which are ingredients in thousands of foods, have been more widespread and sickened more people than have the tainted cantaloupe. There has been a laser focus on improving traceability so any recall can identify the affected product immediately and not have an effect on the rest of the entire category, said Ray Gilmer of United Fresh Produce Association, which represents the countrys largest growers. Gilmer said larger food companies have no choice but to take food safety very seriously. The stakes for a large company to have a food safety incident are huge, he said. It could destroy their company. Listeria, a bacteria found in soil and water, often turns up in processed meats because it can contaminate a processing facility and stay there for a long period of time. Its also common in unpasteurized cheeses and unpasteurized milk, though less so produce such as cantaloupe. The disease can cause fever, muscle aches, gastrointestinal symptoms and even death. One in five people who have listeria can die. A food safety law passed by Congress last year gives the FDA new power to improve tracing food through the system. Food safety advocates say the law will help make the food network safer by focusing on making every step in the chain safer and making it easier to find the source of outbreaks. For the first time, larger farms are required to submit plans detailing how they are keeping their produce safe. Erik Olson, director of food and consumer safety programs for the Pew Health Group, said it is critical those improvements are made to prevent more, larger outbreaks as the system grows more complex. Clearly, the food industry has just changed enormously in the last several decades, Olson said. It would be virtually impossible to sit down and eat a meal and eat food that hasnt come from all over the world.

O PINION Page A8 MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2011 Nugents rhetoricI received an email from Rep. Richard Nugent, posing the question that, since it was obvious (to him, at least) that the governments efforts to stimulate the economy havent worked so far, why not pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution? He figures this would be something new and give Americans a reason to believe were back on the right track. Since Mr. Nugent provides no exposition of the terms of a proposed balanced budget amendment, he is asking for a response in a vacuum. But, then, who needs details? With or without details, however, Mr. Nugents suggestion seems a bit like telling the guy whose car wont start that youll buy him an air conditioner. While hes still not going anywhere, he can feel good about staying at home. Whatever your view of a balanced budget amendment, our immediate need is economic recovery. We need right now a credible plan to bring jobs, especially manufacturing jobs, back to America. We need right now a responsible government where politicians get off their talking points, roll up their sleeves, compromise and move this country forward. We need a fiscally sound long-term plan that balances restraints of governmental spending with a fair taxation system that increases governmental revenues. Mr. Nugent, I implore you to give us what we need. Please get on the right track and make me believe. Elwood R. Harding Jr. Beverly Hills A correctionI am writing this in the hope that it answers Mr. Lee Harkeys question posed to me in his letter concerning my letter published Sept. 14. If you would please read again what I wrote Mr. Harkey, I did not write that shooting ranges are the leading cause of lead contamination to groundwater in Florida. I wrote, and I quote, Lead is also the leading cause of groundwater contamination created by firing ranges in Florida. You can find this information for yourself by simply typing groundwater contamination caused by shooting ranges into any Internet search engine. Linda Boutwell Lecanto Costly changes Yesterday (Sept. 23), the mailman delivered my Medicare RX Rewards Plus Annual Notice of Changes for 2012. Starting Jan. 1, my monthly premium goes up more than $40 per month. This is because if youre married, you must pay the an extra amount for your Medicare. Im a diabetic and use an insulin pump. I use eight-plus vials of insulin a month. According to the new report, just for my insulin, it will cost from $850 to more than $1,000 a month. Looks like I may have to stop taking my insulin, because I cant afford that kind of cost. Now, my insulin doesnt include all the other medication I take. Some medicines that were in Tier 1 have been upgraded to Tier 2 and Tier 3, and the medicines that were in Tier 4 are now in Tiers 5 and 6. After speaking with my diabetes doctor yesterday, I told him I may have to stop taking medicines all together. Its either that or I may lose my house, my vehicle and a lot of other things. Ive called different drug companies and asked about getting some help with my drugs. They all told me that I make too much money. So where am I supposed to look now? I guess Ill have to wait until next year and see what happens. Jake Little Homosassa I have no beef with the student Republicans. Oh, I disagree with them about affirmative action, and probably a dozen other things as well. But I am not troubled amused, but not troubled by the way theyve expressed their view. Unfortunately, others have been less sanguine. The story goes as follows: the GOP student group at the University of California at Berkeley wanted to illustrate its opposition to pending legislation that would allow state universities to consider race, gender, ethnicity and national origin as factors in admission. So it sponsored an Increase Diversity Bake Sale, in which the prices varied according to race. White men were asked to pay $2 for what Asian men could get for $1.50, Latino men for $1, AfricanAmerican men for 75 cents and Native American men for a quarter. All women received a 25-cent discount off those prices. If I were going to use baked goods as a metaphor for affirmative action, my price scale would go like this: Black and Native American men would pay $10, Asian and Latino men $7 for brownies white men were able to buy for a buck, and the blacks, the Native Americans, the Asians and the Latinos would have to walk a gauntlet of gunfire, physical assault, name calling and legal roadblocks in order to reach the counter. Women would not be allowed to buy any brownies, but would be required to remain in the kitchen baking them, preferably while barefoot and pregnant. After 350 years, the black, Latino, Asian and Native American men would get a $5 discount off the original prices (do the math) but theyd have to listen to white men carp about the gross unfairness of it all. Women would also get a discount, but would have to sweep up the bakery after it closed. That said, Im troubled at the response the GOP students have faced. There has been outrage, which is fair, but they say theyve also been harassed and threatened online, which is not. One student protesting the sale told a reporter it was hurtful, attacking underrepresented communities by reducing their communities to a cheaply priced good. But even granting the vulnerability felt by such students, would we do them any favors, do we prepare them for the world, by treating them as delicate flowers who must be shielded from all that is hurtful? We might do better teaching them to cope with the hurtful things that will inevitably come. The contretemps sparked a resolution from the student senate reportedly and ominously noting the power of a separate student Judiciary Council to defund any group that discriminates and condemning the use of discrimination whether it is in satire or in seriousness by any student group. The resolution thus combined politically-correct censorship, and short-sighted overreach, laying out a rubric which, writ large, would outlaw the likes of Chris Rock, Mark Twain, Richard Pryor, Norman Lear, Stephen Colbert, and other satirists who have used discrimination to make trenchant political points. Thankfully, the racist bake sale and a counter protest went on last week as planned. There was no violence, just vigorous debate and a visceral reminder of what a messy, dangerous, and powerful tool the founders entrusted to us when they said we had the right to speak our minds.

It is absolutely the commissioners duty to question spending of all constitutional officers; however, Commissioner Webb allowed his political differences with Dawsy to cloud his judgment. Dawsys budget document was presented in advance of the meeting so commissioners would have time to ask questions and receive clarifications. Webb did not ask any questions at that time and instead chose the commission board room in an attempt to embarrass the sheriff. Among other things, Webb criticized the sheriff for using $983,000 in retirement savings rather than cutting it from his budget. However, county government and all other constitutional offices did the same thing and Webb did not criticize himself or other constitutional officers for doing so. Webb also said Dawsys savings were not in line with the other constitutional officers; however, a budget brief prepared by the county shows the sheriffs budget is the only one of the constitutional officers budgets that is actually going down this year. This is not to say that just because Webb is running against Dawsy for sheriff that he cannot question him on county business. He should; however, he should first ask questions to gain a better understanding and collect good data to work from before trying to embarrass the sheriff in front of the commission and public. Going forward, Commissioner Webb should be careful to not mix the political and public-service arenas. He can say anything he wants about the sheriff on the campaign trail, but he must watch his motives and actions while conducting the peoples business as a commissioner.

Now let me get this straight: All these businesses are outsourcing the jobs overseas and bringing in overseas labor to do our jobs. Their biggest excuse was theres not enough laborers in this country, not enough welders. Well, let me tell you something, theres enough highly skilled union welders in this country to do these jobs. Whered it go?Im reading in todays (Sept. 28) paper (about) Sundays fundraiser to benefit the community center for the George Washington Carver School. About two years ago, Nancy Argenziano gave this community center $250,000 to do this work and all theyve got is a slab. I would like to know what happened to the rest of this money.Brotherly loveIm sounding off to those of us (who) call ourselves Christians. How can you say you love God, whom you have not seen, but your neighbor you see every day, you refuse to speak and get to know 1 John 4:20. We go to church Sunday mornings, Bible studies on Wednesday nights faithfully and we send our children to Christian schools, but refuse to teach them about other cultures and rules. Read Matthew 7:1 and absorb it. If we truly try a little harder, Im sure we can figure this out. If you are not deceiving yourself, this article does not apply to you. These days we need each other more than ever and you will be in for a rude awakening when our Savior says, Depart from me, I never knew you. Its too late. Brotherly love can only help us all. Im praying for this community daily.Available bikeI see that theres a woman (who) is a grandmother who needs a bike for her child, that it was stolen. We would be happy to give them a bike.

10 successful years Thank you again, Citrus County, for supporting our Fall Book Sale. This was a special sale for a number of reasons. We had a record number of beautiful books donated by our residents we completely filled the Citrus County Auditorium to the brim. Because of that and your enthusiastic purchases, we made a very impressive $40,888.80 for our efforts, and we topped the $600,000 mark of money raised for the Coastal Region, Lakes Region and Central Ridge libraries and the library system. We have now provided more than $620,000 for the purchase of materials and other projects. With the budget constraints on all services and the even greater use of the libraries, these figures are particularly significant. This money has enabled the libraries to provide new books and other materials requested by patrons to add even more to our libraries importance and satisfaction in the community. This sale was also the 10th anniversary of Friends of Citrus County Library Systems existence and semiannual book sales. In celebration of that milestone, we had visits from many costumed authors and characters from literature during the weekend. We also want to thank the Citrus Clowns, who were present to paint faces and hand out balloon animals to happy children. Our sales are huge undertakings which owe their success to many community organizations. We are deeply grateful to the following individuals and groups, who helped make the fall sale another triumph: the Citrus County Chronicle for co-sponsorship of the semiannual event, with special appreciation to Neale Brennan, Nancy Kennedy and editors of the weeklies, and also to the truck driver who worked with us to return empty boxes and other materials to our book house following the sale. We also thank WYKE-TV for its continued support; the staff of the Citrus County Auditorium and Parks and Recreation for their friendliness and assistance; the many energetic Rotarians of Inverness for setting up more than 100 tables; the Citrus High School Air Force JROTC students for distributing 1,163 jampacked banana boxes in setup and for after-sale cleanup; the Inverness Walmart Supercenter and Forest Ridge Publix for donating the banana boxes; and to the Crystal River Publix and the Crystal River Sweetbay for supplying plastic bags. Many thanks as well to the entire library staff and our faithful courier, Lee Seagreaves, for their help in collection and delivery of donated materials. Special thanks also go to Tom and Sue Smith of Maja Signs and Designs for our new banners and to the three energetic and enthusiastic men from the Mission in Citrus for their valuable help with the boxes during and following the sale. The success of these fundraisers also depends on the hard work and devotion of the FOCCLS volunteers. To the 144 friends who worked this sale, many thanks for your energy and enthusiasm. Finally, and most importantly, we salute the people of Citrus County who make these events possible through their contributions of quality books and by their patronage of the sales. We couldnt succeed without you! FOCCLS operates yearround. Volunteers are now at work sorting, pricing and packing boxes for our next sale, March 9 to 13, at the Citrus County Auditorium. Please read, return and recycle. Drop off your gently used books, games, puzzles, CDs and DVDs at the checkout desks of Central Ridge, Coastal or Lakes Region libraries. We look forward to seeing you in the spring! Sue Haderer president, FOCCLS Grateful runner What wonderful people we have here in Citrus County. Im speaking of those who were supportive and comforting when I ran into the Key Center Thrift Shop on State Road 44 in Crystal River on Sept. 23. The response from Bob McIntosh, Shirley Crow, Leo Doucette, Deputy Tim Horton and all the emergency folks my utmost gratitude goes out to each and every one of you. I use a key word, togetherness, of friends and all of the above, it helped to pull me through my emotions. Bless you all. Dolores Elwood Beverly Hills Great care at CMH Recently our mother, Esther Jordan, was rushed to Citrus Memorial hospital with chest pains. It was early in the morning, and we would like to say a great big thank you to everyone involved with her care. First the EMTs, then the ER doctor and his staff, the admitting personnel, and all the nursing staff in PCU everyone did a spectacular job. She entered the hospital around 6 a.m. and was in a bed in PCU by 8:30 a.m. We also want to say thank you to Dr. Josh Summers and to Dr. Ansari. Mother could not have had better care anywhere. Everyone was extremely professional and kept saying No thanks necessary, we are only doing our job. To all who know her as Ms. Esther, Mama Esther or Mama, she is doing extremely well and we thank you for all your prayers and concerns. Albert Jordan, Nell Mayberry and Ann Gibbs Inverness Praise CMH staff My husband recently experienced a surgical procedure in one-day surgery at Citrus Memorial hospital. I have to say the attention and care both he and I received from the time of check-in to the time when the volunteer wheeled him out to the car was exemplary. The techs, RNs, anesthesiologists, surgeons and volunteers are worthy of praise. Do not hesitate to go to Citrus Memorial if the need arises. The powers that be need to put their egos aside and settle their legal battles without all the ruckus that has been going on for the past few years, resulting in a bad reputation regarding the care given to patients. Believe me, the care is there for you. Again, thanks to all involved in my husbands care. Gloria Nolan Homosassa Fortunate fundraiser On behalf of the 832 K-9s Deputy Dogs organization, I want to say how much all of us appreciate the Citrus County Chronicle for the outstanding coverage that was given by your publication for our recent 10-year anniversary fundraiser on Sept. 24 at the Citrus Springs Community Center. The event was a sellout! Since 2001, Angie and Duke Snodgrass and their organization, the deputy dogs, have provided (more than) 125 trained bloodhounds at little or no cost to law enforcement worldwide in memory of their son, Deputy Kody Snodgrass. We are indeed very fortunate that our hometown newspaper has chosen to help us throughout the year. Thanks to all those in charge of the Chronicle and special thanks to Neale Brennan, director of Community Affairs, Ken Melton, Community Affairs editor, Community Affairs graphic artist Cindy Connolly, Community Editor Sarah Gatling, Staff Writer A.B. Sidibe and all involved behind the scenes. Each of you have been so gracious to me personally and I have enjoyed meeting and talking with you all. I also wanted to thank everyone involved with allowing me to write a monthly Deputy Dogs heroic hound story that comes out in your weekly publications. I feel very honored you would give me this opportunity to share with your readers about how our amazing bloodhounds are on the job 24/7 saving lives around the country. For more information about the deputy dogs, please visit www.deputy dogs.org. Kathy Phillips Hernando Classifieds change I have relied on the Chronicle to find jobs not that there are all that many jobs out there in Citrus County. I find it difficult now that you have changed the way your jobs in the classified section are laid out. I click on a job and get harassed about going back to school. I dont need to go back to school.

On trial Associated Press Hawo Mohamed Hassan, left, and Amina Farah Ali, both of Rochester, Minn., are accused of funneling money to a terrorist group in Somalia and are the first to go on trial in Minnesotas years-long federal probe into the recruiting and financing of al-Shabab. Their trial begins Monday. Memphis mayor seeks re-electionMEMPHIS, Tenn. Memphis is getting ready to hold its mayoral election this week and incumbent A.C. Wharton is the clear front-runner. Wharton has guided the gritty city through a $60 million budget deficit, a school funding battle and a historic Mississippi River flood. His mediation skills and low-key demeanor have helped him maintain his support during the past two years. He faces two main competitors in the election Thursday and he is leading in polls by big margins. Unicorn? Associated Press The Arabian Oryx is the antelope made famous in Arabian poetry and by its associations with the unicorn legend had been hunted to near-extinction by 1972. But over the past three decades, it has staged a remarkable comeback through a program that got its start in the Arizona desert and has flourished under the united efforts of several Arabian Gulf countries. Greece to miss deficit targetsATHENS, Greece Greece wont meet 2011-12 deficit targets imposed by international lenders as part of the countrys bailout, the Finance Ministry said Sunday. The countrys deficit this year is expected to reach 8.5 percent of gross domestic product, or $25.2 billion higher than the targeted $23.1 billion, which would have been 7.8 percent of GDP, the ministry said. Greece has been reliant since May 2010 on regular payouts of loans from a 10 billion ($150 billion) bailout from other eurozone countries and the International Monetary Fund. It was granted a second billion package in July, but details of that deal remain to be worked out. The Finance Ministry said the missed target was because of a deeper-than-expected recession, with the economy contracting by 5.5 percent instead of the 3.8 percent estimate made in May. It implied the deficit could even exceed this level by the end of the year unless all new austerity measures were implemented. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A10 MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressSANAA, Yemen A government warplane bombed an army position in southern Yemen, killing at least 30 soldiers involved in months of intense battles against al-Qaida members, officials said Sunday. The strike appeared to be a mistake, but the soldiers hit were from a unit that had defected to side with protesters seeking the presidents ouster in Yemens chapter of the Arab Spring, raising questions about whether the bombing might have been intentional. Yemens government and the renegade military units both consider Yemens al-Qaida branch an enemy. The presidents political opponents, however, accuse him of allowing the Islamic militants to seize control of several towns in southern Yemen earlier this year in a bid to spark fears in the West that without him in power, al-Qaida would take over. The airstrike, which took place Saturday evening in Abyan province, targeted an abandoned school used as a shelter by soldiers of the armys 119th Brigade who were battling the al-Qaida fighters, military and medical officials said. The brigade is thought to have received significant support from the U.S. military to enable it to fight the militants in the south more effectively. The school is east of Abyans provincial capital, Zinjibar, seized in May by Islamic militants taking advantage of Yemens political turmoil to expand their reach. In recent days, fighting in the area has been heavy; 28 soldiers and militants were killed there Saturday. After the airstrike, militants inspecting the site shot and killed soldiers who were wounded by the bombing, the military officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information. Yemeni jet bombs army post At least 30 soldiers killed in attack Official: Al-Qaidas bomb maker not killedWASHINGTON Al-Qaidas top bomb maker in Yemen did not die in a drone strike on a convoy, a top Yemeni official said Sunday, a report that dashed the hopes of U.S. officials who thought the attack might have killed a trio of top al-Qaida personnel. The U.S. drone strike Friday killed U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and an American propagandist, Samir Khan, who published a slick English-language web magazine that spouted al-Qaidas anti-Western ideology. U.S. intelligence officials had said it appeared that bomb maker Ibrahim alAsiri was among the dead. However, on Sunday the Yemeni official released a list of two others whose bodies had been identified and noted that al-Asiri was not one of them. The Yemeni official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence matters. Associated Press Obesity, stem cell research could win Nobel Associated PressSTOCKHOLM Two scientists who unlocked some of the mysteries linked to obesity or a professor who figured out how to make stem cells without human embryos could be candidates for the medicine award when the first of the 2011 Nobel Prizes are announced Monday. The prize committees dont give any clues they even keep nominations secret for 50 years but winners usually have won many other awards and distinctions before they are considered for a Nobel. Canadian-born Douglas Coleman and American Jeffrey Friedman have won several prizes for their discovery of leptin, a hormone that regulates food intake and body weight, and could be in the running for the coveted prize worth $1.5 million. Last year, Coleman, of the Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine, and Friedman, of Rockefeller University in New York, received the Lasker Award, often seen as a precursor to the Nobel, for having shown obesity is frequently linked to metabolic disruptions, or the lack of leptin, rather than being a self-induced problem. Japanese Shinya Yamanaka, another potential Nobel candidate, offered the world of regenerative medicine a breakthrough with experiments showing stem cells can be made from ordinary skin cells. The discovery led to a leap in stem cell research, reducing the need for using human embryos. Yamanaka won the Lasker Award in 2009 and this year shared Israels Wolf Prize. One out of three Wolf awardwinners in chemistry, physics and medicine have won a Nobel Prize. Yamanaka, of Kyoto University in Japan and the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease in San Francisco, could share the prize with British cloning pioneer John Gurdon or Canadian stem cell researcher James Till. Till discovered blood stem cells, which have saved the life of many thousands of leukemia patients. Gurdons cloning technique and Yamanakas stem cells are highly interesting in the field of basic science, wrote science reporter Karin Bojs of Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter, who has stood out as a leading Nobel guesser over the years. Announcements come out today Associated Press Nikki Angelo, of Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., greets inquisitive pedestrians at the Occupy Wall Street protests welcoming table Sunday in the financial districts Zuccotti park in New York. The table provides protest literature and an opportunity for new participants to join the demonstrations. Still occupied Wall Street protesters: Were in for the long haul Associated PressNEW YORK Protesters who have been camping out in Manhattans Financial District for more than two weeks eat donated food and keep their laptops running with a portable gas-powered generator. They have a newspaper the Occupied Wall Street Journal and a makeshift hospital. They lack a clear objective, though they speak against corporate greed, social inequality, global climate change and other concerns. But theyre growing in numbers, getting more organized and showing no sign of quitting. City officials thought we were going to leave and we havent left, 19-year-old protester Kira MoyerSims said. Were going to stay as long as we can. The arrests of more than 700 people Saturday as thousands tried to cross the Brooklyn Bridge seemed to pour oil on the rage of those who camped out overnight in Zuccotti Park, a private plaza off Broadway near Wall Street. The growing, cross-country movement signals a shift in consciousness, said Jared Schy, a young man sitting squeezed between three others who participated in Saturdays march from Manhattans Financial District to the bridge. We dont care whether mainstream media covers this or people see us on television. What counts are the more than 30,000 viewers following our online live stream, he said. We heard from a lot of them, and theyre joining us now! The Occupy Wall Street demonstration started out last month with fewer than a dozen college students spending days and nights in Zuccotti Park. It has grown significantly, both in New York City and elsewhere as people across the country, from Boston to Los Angeles, display their solidarity in similar protests. Moyer-Sims, of Portland, Ore., said the group has grown much more organized. We have a protocol for most things, she said, including getting legal help for people who are arrested. The protest has drawn activists of diverse ages and occupations, including Jackie Fellner, a marketing manager from Westchester County.

Ladies set to hit links in county championship J OE K ORNECKI Chronicle correspondentThis years annual girls golf county championship tees off today at the Citrus Hills Country Club. In addition to the bragging rights of queens of the county this match holds an added significance with the top six golfers being named to the 2010-11 All-Chronicle team. The 18-hole contest tees off at 12 noon. Here is a look at what each team brings to the table. Citrus Hurricanes Throughout the 2011 season, Citrus head coach Dave Hamilton has been proud of how his team has competed and progressed. The Lady Canes (1-4) won their first match this past Thursday against Central at Lakeside Golf and Country Club, but their losses came against quality opponents such as Lecanto and The Villages. Also, the Lady Canes came in fourth out of 14 teams at an invitational in the The Villages two weeks ago. The team has had a few matches canceled due to the weather but in the ones they have played Citrus has competed hard all season. Their goal on Monday is to dethrone Lecanto as county champs. Heading that charge will be Victoria Tiny Pfeiffer, who averaged a 52 to lead the Lady Canes team on the season. Next in line were Caitlin CJ Johnson and Naomi DeJesus with a pair of 56s. The other three Canes that will compete are Kayla Woodard, Jessie Santiago, and Alex Mundreanu. Coach Hamiltons expectations for his team going into the county championship are to get ready for districts and be competitive. He knows Lecanto sets the bar in the county and his goals for his team against their county foe this season were at least to cut strokes between the two. And theyve already accomplished that by losing 200-227 in a recent match. We would like to cut that margin in half at least because it would be a moral victory, Hamilton admitted. Lecanto Panthers At the beginning of the season, Lecanto head coach Doug Warren was kind of pessimistic about his team after losing standout golfers Amy Wheat and Haylie Amundson. He was hoping this years squad would bring good effort and become a cohesive unit and he got just that. The Lady Panthers only lost one match enroute to a 5-1 record and finished second out of 14 teams at an invitational at The Villages two weeks ago.

Helped when Detroit catcher Alex Avila lost his footing on the slick ondeck circle while chasing a foul pop that wouldve been the final out, New York got a chance to win it. Its a little hard. Thats what happens sometimes, Valverde said. After his popup landed untouched, Curtis Granderson drew a walk. With two outs and two on, Robinson Cano came to the plate. Cano, who hit a grand slam and had six RBIs as the Yankees won the opener, wiped away raindrops from his helmet and then hit a routine groundball to end it. All of a sudden, against anybody but particularly against a team like them with the short porch in right field it was not a good feeling, Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. But it worked out OK. Tigers starter Max Scherzer pitched no-hit ball into the sixth before Cano blooped an opposite-field single to left. Miguel Cabreras two-run homer in the first off Freddy Garcia gave Scherzer an early edge, and the Tigers took a 4-0 lead into the eighth.

Associated Press Brewers bash Milwaukee squeezes to 2-0 lead in NLDS Associated PressMILWAUKEE The biggest momentum swing for the Milwaukee Brewers involved no swing at all. Jonathan Lucroy Mr. Squeeze to his teammates drove in the go-ahead run with a bunt and the Brewers broke away from the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-4 Sunday to take a 2-0 lead in their NL division series. Its a free RBI if you execute and I really work hard to get that down, Lucroy said. A safety squeeze, all youve got to do is get it down to the right area. Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer and fellow slugger Prince Fielder added an RBI single for Milwaukee. But the brawny Brewers excel in other ways, especially Associated PressDOVER, Del. Kurt Busch left a rocky start to the Chase and his fiercest rival behind him. Busch stormed into contention for a second Cup championship, holding off fellow Chase drivers Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards to win Sunday at Dover International Speedway, tightening the leaderboard in a playoff where no driver has emerged as a clear-cut favorite. Busch, though, is in the mix. His No. 22 Dodge seemed only to get stronger over the 400-mile race and he beat Johnson, his long-time antagonist, on the final restart to take the checkered flag for the second time this season. The win pushed Busch from ninth to fourth in the points standings, only nine points out of first. Only 15 points separate the top eight drivers with seven races left. Edwards and Kevin Harvick share the points lead in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship standings entering round 4 of the Chase at Kansas Speedway. Harvick is seeded first because of a tiebreaker. Busch, the 2004 champion, won his 24th career race and for the first time at Dover. To win a Sprint Cup race in the Chase, this is what its all about, Busch said. Johnson leads active drivers with six career victories at Dover and traditionally dominated Chase races. Sure enough, after a tough start to the Chase, the defending five-time champion led the majority of laps and proved the No. 48 is far from finished. Are we out of this? said Johnson, rubbing his chin with a smile. Not yet. Not by a long shot. Johnson got beat off the last two restarts, spinning his tires on the first one and he mistimed Kurt takes Dover See JAGS / Page B4 See PINK / Page B4 See BUSCH / Page B4 See BUCS / Page B4 Associated PressTAMPA The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are eager to show NFL fans across the nation their new identity on a prime time stage. A team that was once accustomed to Monday Night Football, the Bucs have not hosted a game on that night in eight years. Their previous appearance was three years ago an ugly loss that began a four-game, season-ending slide that kept them out of the playoffs and also cost former coach Jon Gruden his job. All thats history, though. Tampa Bay (2-1) is building under Raheem Morris, whos looking forward to showing off his young team against the Indianapolis Colts (0-3) on Monday night. I said in the locker room, its an opportunity to show everybody what theyve been missing, Morris said, adding that the absence of Colts star Peyton Manning will not take any luster off the occasion for the Bucs, who won 10 games last season and are off to another promising start. Were going to a big time game and big time environment with a bunch of guys who havent done it before. Ronde Barber might be the only guy thats played on Monday Night Football, coaches included, so its all hands on deck, the NFL s youngest coach said. Lets go play a great game on a great stage and act like weve been there before, the 35-yearold Morris said. And the key to that is to go out there and use our formula. Play fast, play hard, play consistent and do what we do. Barber, 36 and in his 15th season, is the lone player remaining Bucs embrace national TV exposure vs. Colts Johnson finishes 2nd to Busch Associated Press With a Breast Cancer Awareness month logo wrapped around the goal post bank, a military B-52 aircraft flies over Everbank Field prior to the Jacksonville Jaguars and New Orleans Saints game on Sunday.

In support of breast cancer awareness, the color will be worn on the field and on the sidelines during games throughout October. The league and its players collaborated with the American Cancer Society for an initiative reminding women 40 and older about the importance of having an annual mammogram. Country star Martina McBride sang the national anthem flanked by dozens of breast cancer survivors before the Ravens game in Baltimore on Sunday night against the New York Jets. Footballs included pink ribbon decals, as did the padding for goal posts, and the color was splashed on fields all around the NFL.

Philadelphia, Henery 39 (WR), 33 (WR). Associated PressSAN DIEGO The San Diego Chargers are relying on workmanlike performances rather than a lot of fireworks from their high-powered offense. Philip Rivers was 21 of 31 for 307 yards and one touchdown, Mike Tolbert ran for another score and the Chargers knocked out Miami quarterback Chad Henne on the way to beating the winless Dolphins 26-16 on Sunday. Henne hurt his left shoulder at the end of a run on a broken play on the Dolphins second possession and didnt return. Although backup Matt Moore led the Dolphins to the games first TD, Rivers passing eventually overpowered the Dolphins (0-4). Rivers threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to Vincent Jackson to tie the game at 7 late in the first quarter. Ryan Mathews 42-yard gain on a screen pass set up Tolberts 1-yard leap over the pile for a 20-10 lead for the Chargers (3-1) early in the third quarter. The Chargers managed to score two touchdowns. They got four field goals from Nick Novak, from 27, 48, 23 and 38 yards. Rivers took a knee three times inside the Dolphins 20yard line to end the game. Jackson, who was in and out of the game, apparently due to an abdominal injury, had three catches for 108 yards. Mathews had another solid day, running 16 times for 81 yards and catching five passes for 68 yards. Henne and Moore were each intercepted once. Chargers star tight end Antonio Gates missed his second straight game with a sore right foot, an injury thats bothered him since last season. It was the second week in a row the Chargers beat a winless team at home without a lot of flash. The previous Sunday, the Chargers beat the AFC West rival Kansas City Chiefs 20-17. The Chiefs got their first win Sunday by beating the winless Minnesota Vikings 22-17. Henne was hurt at the end of a 1yard run in the first quarter. He went to hand off to Lex Hilliard, who wasnt ready for the ball. Henne was hit by Shaun Phillips and stayed on the ground for a few minutes. He walked off the field, then went into the locker room. When he came back out to the sideline, it was clear he wasnt going back in. Moore came in and completed a 31-yard pass to Charles Clay. Hilliard capped the drive with a 4-yard TD run, but it was overturned after replay, with the officials saying his knee was down inside the 1-yard line. Hilliard then dove over the pile to give the Dolphins a 7-0 lead. Rivers needed three plays to tie it. After consecutive first downs, he lobbed the 55-yarder to Jackson, who dived to make the catch, then got up before a Dolphins defender could touch him, and scooted into the end zone. Reggie Bush, playing as a pro in his hometown for the first time, ran 13 times for 50 yards and caught two passes for 15 yards. Miamis Dan Carpenter kicked field goals of 41, 37 and 51 yards. Associated Press Miami Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore (8) throws during the second half against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday in San Diego. The Associated PressARLINGTON, Texas Matthew Stafford saw his defense start wiping out a 24-point deficit with interceptions returned for touchdowns midway through the third quarter, then he and Calvin Johnson took over from there, leading the Detroit Lions to a stunning 34-30 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. A week after turning a 20-point halftime deficit into an overtime win, the Lions provided further proof theyre a legitimate contender this season. Detroit is 4-0 and has won an NFLbest eight straight games. This also was its franchise-record fifth straight road win, avenging a loss here last November that had been its NFLrecord 26th straight road loss. Tony Romo and the Cowboys (2-2) continued to show theres no lead and no deficit too big for them. They blew a 14-point fourth-quarter lead for the first time in franchise history in the opener.Packers 49, Broncos 23 GREEN BAY, Wis. Aaron Rodgers threw for a career-high 408 yards, tied a personal best with four touchdown passes and ran for two more scores and Green Bay remained unbeaten. Charles Woodson ran an interception back for a touchdown for the Packers (4-0), who join resurgent NFC North rivals Detroit as the only undefeated teams left in the NFL. Eric Decker caught a pair of touchdowns from Kyle Orton for Denver (1-3). Orton threw for 273 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions. Backup Tim Tebow made a brief and uneventful appearance at quarterback for the Broncos early, but coach John Fox chose not to give Tebow more work when the game got out of control in the fourth quarter. Bengals 23, Bills 20 CINCINNATI Rookie quarterback Andy Dalton shook off a horrid first half and led his first comeback victory, culminating in Mike Nugents 43yard field goal as time ran out against previously unbeaten Buffalo. The Bills (3-1) came in as the AFCs last perfect team after pulling off historic comebacks. This time, they couldnt hold a lead. Dalton threw a touchdown pass and ran 3 yards on a draw play, tying it with 4:09 to go. He scrambled for a first down on the winning drive a replay overturn gave him the needed ground and Nugent ended it with his third field goal in front of the smallest crowd of Paul Brown Stadiums history. The Bengals (2-2) overcame a 17-3 halftime deficit to end a 10-game losing streak against Buffalo. 49ers 24, Eagles 23 PHILADELPHIA When Alex Smith began to air it out, he outdid Michael Vick and Philadelphia. Chucking its conservative approach in the second half, the 49ers surged back from a 20-point hole for the victory. Vick wasnt hampered by his bruised right hand, throwing for a career-high 416 yards and two touchdowns and rushing for 75 yards. But Phillys defense fell apart in the final 30 minutes, and Frank Gore capped a 77-yard drive with a 12-yard TD run with 3 minutes remaining. Former Eagles kicker David Akers, who left for San Francisco as a free agent this summer, kicked the decisive extra point. His replacement, rookie Alex Henery, missed from 39 and 33 yards in the final period. Philadelphia (1-3) has been outscored 36-0 in the fourth quarter of its last three games, all losses. The 49ers (3-1) are on top of the NFC West in Jim Harbaughs rookie season as coach. Texans 17, Steelers 10 HOUSTON Arian Foster rushed for 155 yards and the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter as Houston overcame an injury to All-Pro Andre Johnson for the win., Johnson left in the second quarter with a right hamstring injury and did not return though he was back on the sideline late to watch Houston (3-1) finish off the injury-plagued Steelers (2-2). Ben Roethlisberger was under pressure all day and was sacked five times behind an offensive line missing two regular starters. The quarterback injured his left leg late in the game and left the stadium wearing a walking boot. The Steelers lost running back Rashard Mendenhall (hamstring), linebacker James Harrison (eye) and defensive end Aaron Smith (foot) during the game. Foster, the 2010 NFL rushing champion, finally looked healthy after weeks of nursing a left hamstring strain. Patriots 31, Raiders 19 OAKLAND, Calif. Tom Brady bounced back from a four-interception performance by throwing for 226 yards, two touchdowns and committing no turnovers. Wes Welker caught nine passes for 158 yards and a score, BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Stevan Ridley adding rushing touchdowns and the Patriots (3-1) played a mostly mistake-free game after last weeks surprising loss in Buffalo. This time the interception that changed the game was made by New England instead of thrown by Brady. Patrick Chung got a gift-wrapped pick in the end zone late in the first half when Jason Campbell inexplicably threw the ball right to the safety with no receiver in the area for the Raiders (2-2). Redskins 17, Rams 10 ST. LOUIS Ryan Torain ran for 135 yards and a 20-yard score, and Washington held off a late rally by winless St. Louis. The Redskins (3-1) dominated on defense and got two of their seven sacks late by Stephen Bowen and Brian Orakpo to knock the Rams (04) out of scoring position. James Laurinaitis interception and 15-yard return of an underthrown pass from Rex Grossman had given St. Louis the ball at the Washington 19 with about five minutes remaining. Titans 31, Browns 13 CLEVELAND Matt Hasselbecks fresh start in Tennessee has his team off to an unexpected one. The 13-year veteran quarterback, who left Seattle as a free agent after a playoff-filled decade, threw three TD passes in the first half and safety Jordan Babineaux returned an interception 97 yards for a TD for their third straight win under firstyear coach Mike Munchak. Hasselbeck threw for 194 yards in the first half while helping the Titans (3-1) build a 21-6 lead. The 36-year-old finished 10 of 20 for 220 yards 26 on two completions after halftime. Bears 34, Panthers 29 CHICAGO Devin Hester set an NFL record with his 11th punt return for a touchdown, Matt Forte ran for a career-high 205 yards for Chicago (2-2). Hester had earlier set up a TD run by Forte with a 73-yard kickoff return before he ran back a punt 69 yards in the second quarter to move ahead of Eric Metcalf on the all-time list. He performed three somersaults in the end zone with the lead at 24-10, but the celebration was a little early. The Panthers cut the lead to four points at halftime and had their chances to take the lead in the second half but came up short, spoiling coach Ron Riveras return to Soldier Field. Rookie Cam Newton threw for 374 yards for the Panthers (1-3) and Steve Smith passed Muhsin Muhammad as the teams leading receiver, finishing with 181 yards on eight catches. He now has 9,414 in his career. Falcons 30, Seahawks 28 SEATTLE Matt Ryan threw for 291 yards, rookie Julio Jones caught 11 passes for 127 yards, and Atlanta held off a second-half rally. Ryan was brilliant in the first half. He started out 13-for-15 and had a 1-yard touchdown pass to Tony Gonzalez on Atlantas first possession. Michael Turner also ran for TDs of 21 and 1 yards in the first half. Matt Bryants 50-yard field goal early in the third quarter gave Atlanta (2-2) a 27-7 lead. Tarvaris Jackson threw for three TDs, but the Seahawks (1-3) couldnt complete the comeback, and Steven Hauschka missed a 61-yard field goal attempt with 13 seconds left. Giants 31, Cardinals 27 GLENDALE, Ariz. Eli Manning threw two touchdown passes in a 58-second span late in the game to rally New York. The scoring passes of 2 yards to Jake Ballard with 3:37 to go and 29 yards to Hakeem Nicks with 2:39 left came after the Cardinals (1-3) seemingly had taken control of the game 27-17 on Beanie Wells third rushing touchdown of the game with 5:16 to go. Manning completed 7 of 8 for 126 yards on the decisive drives as the Giants (3-1) won their third in a row. He finished 27 of 40 for 371 yards. Nicks caught 10 for 162 yards. Wells rushed for a career-best 138 yards. Chiefs 22, Vikings 17 KANSAS CITY, Mo. Matt Cassel hit Dwayne Bowe for a 52-yard fourth-quarter touchdown pass, Ryan Succop was perfect on five field-goal attempts and the Chiefs are no longer winless. Succops accurate right leg had already staked Kansas City (1-3) to a 15-10 lead by the start of the fourth quarter when Cassel dropped back to pass. He saw Bowe get around Cedric Griffin, who had slipped just after the snap, and hit his Pro Bowl wide receiver in stride. Bowe made a pirouette to get around safety Jamarca Sanford, then broke Griffens tackle as the cornerback tried to recover, and trotted the last couple of yards for the touchdown. Minnesota is 0-4.

Alabama, LSU top two teams in polls Associated PressLSU and Alabama are the top two teams in the country one month before their game in Tuscaloosa. The SEC West rivals held the first two spots in The Associated Press college football poll released Sunday as the second-ranked Crimson Tide jumped past No. 3 Oklahoma. Alabamas rise gives the Southeastern Conference the top two teams in the country for the 10th time in the last four seasons. And for the first time since 2000, the Nos. 1 and 2 teams reside in the same division. That season Nebraska and Kansas State of the Big 12 North held the top two spots in the AP poll for one week. The Tide beat Florida 38-10 on Saturday night in Gainesville, then received 12 first-place votes in the media rankings. LSU remained No. 1 for a second straight week, receiving 40 first-place votes and 1,473 points. Alabama had 1,435 points. The Tigers play the Tide on Nov. 5 in a game that could ultimately decide the division and much more. Oklahoma, which started the season No. 1 before slipping behind LSU last week, got seven first-place votes. Wisconsin also moved up after a big victory, jumping three spots to No. 4 after a 48-17 win against Nebraska. Boise State, which had one firstplace vote, slipped a spot to No. 5. Oklahoma was No. 1 in the USA Today coaches poll, followed by LSU, Alabama, Stanford and Wisconsin. The top eight in the AP poll were all undefeated, with No. 6 Oklahoma State followed by Stanford and Clemson. Oregon was ninth and Arkansas was No. 10. Three more unbeaten teams were next: No. 11 Texas, which faces rival Oklahoma on Saturday in Dallas, No. 12 Michigan and No. 13 Georgia Tech. Nebraska fell six spots to No. 14 and Auburn jumped back into the poll all the way to No. 15 after the Tigers beat South Carolina 16-10 on the road. The defending national champions have fallen out of the rankings twice this season. No. 16 West Virginia is the only Big East team in the rankings. No. 17 Florida dropped five spots after getting thumped by Alabama and No. 18 South Carolina dropped eight spots. No. 19 Illinois has its best ranking since the final regular-season poll of 2007. No. 20 Kansas State is ranked for the first time since Oct. 14, 2007. The final five were Virginia Tech, Arizona State, Florida State, Texas A&M and Baylor. Falling out after losses were TCU and South Florida. F OOTBALL C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, O CTOBER 3, 2011 B3 Associated PressIn a few weeks, it is likely that the only thing left to talk about concerning Ohio State is whether Urban Meyer will be the Buckeyes next coach. What began in December with the NCAA suspending Terrelle Pryor and four other Buckeyes for swapping championship rings, trophies and other memorabilia for tattoos has left one of the elite programs in college football poised to have its worst season in 23 years. The Buckeyes are 3-2 after an ugly 10-7 loss at home against Michigan State on Saturday. Next up is a treacherous three-game stretch: at No. 14 Nebraska on Saturday, at No. 19 Illinois the week after and home for No. 4 Wisconsin after an off week. The Buckeyes havent missed the postseason since 1999, havent finished below .500 since 1988 when they went 4-6-1 in John Coopers first year as coach, and havent lost four straight games since 1943. To say those things wont happen this season is to indulge in wishful thinking and hoping for the best. Ohio State ranks 108th in the nation in total offense and 110th in passing. Without Pryor, the Buckeyes simply have nobody prepared to be a starting quarterback for a big-time team. No grand plan at Ohio State had senior quarterback Joe Bauserman starting this season. Braxton Miller was not supposed to be leading the team as a freshman. But thats what coach Luke Fickell has been left with. Of course, the grand plan also never had Fickell running the team at least not so soon. Fickell was handed this mess when Jim Tressel was ousted for covering up the violations that got Pryor and company suspended. A small bit of good news for the Buckeyes comes this week when the other players who were suspended with Pryor become eligible to play in Lincoln. The additions of receiver DeVier Posey, running back Dan Herron and tackle Mike Adams should provide a boost, but it might already be too late. The mix in Columbus is volatile. Players normally accustomed to competing for Big Ten titles and BCS bids could quickly be relegated to vying for a trip to Detroit for the bowl season. Will talented seniors such as Posey and Adams already be thinking more about their draft stock than beating the Illini? With Fickell and the rest of the coaching staff not guaranteed a job beyond this season, do underclassmen tune out coaches they figure wont be around next year? To say the Buckeyes seem to be on their way to getting what they deserve isnt quite right. Surely there are players on that roster and coaches on that staff who deserve better than a fivewin season. No doubt there are many who could be paying from crimes they did not commit while Pryor and Tressel collect NFL paychecks. And there just might be enough talent in Columbus to prevent the collapse that appears to be inevitable. This team has some great players. I know some of these guys are doing the best job they can to step up, center Mike Brewster said. I know Joe came in and did a good job at the end of the game and I know Braxtons doing the best he can. It was a hard day, but youve got to keep fighting. Maybe Brewster, a senior, is one of those guys who deserves better. But for leaders such as Athletic Director Gene Smith and University President Gordon Gee, who allowed a star coach and star players to believe they could skirt the rules, and all those boosters, supporters and fans so blinded by loyalty that they actually believe the Buckeyes have been victimized, this season is exactly what they had coming. PAC-12 PASSERS Andrew Luck isnt the only Pac-12 quarterback off to a great start. Including Luck, six of the top 25 rated passers in the nation are from the Pac-12, more than any other conference. Like Luck, much was expected of some of the guys having big years. USCs Matt Barkley has thrown for 1,587 yards, Arizonas Nick Foles has passed for 1,877 yards and Oregons Derron Thomas has 12 touchdown passes in only 108 attempts. Joining those established stars are Washingtons Keith Price, Jake Lockers replacement who has guided the Huskies to a 4-1 start and thrown 17 touchdown passes, and Washington States Marshall Lobbestael, who has the Cougars 3-1 after stepping in for injured starter Jeff Tuel. IN CASE YOU MISSED IT San Jose State has a two-game winning streak for the first time in three years. The Spartans also snapped a 16game road losing streak by beating Colorado State 38-31 in Fort Collins on Saturday. Coming off a victory against Western Athletic Conference rival New Mexico State, San Jose State beat the Rams of the Mountain West Conference on a 38-yard touchdown pass from Matt Faulkner to Jabari Carr with 54 seconds left. Considering the way the MWC has gutted the WAC in the last year luring away Boise State, Nevada, Hawaii and Fresno State the Spartans victory had to feel good for longtime WAC Commissioner Karl Benson. On the other side, CSU coach Steve Fairchild, 16-26 in his fourth season at his alma mater, could be in trouble. QUICK HITS The national championship race looks like an eight-team contest between LSU, Alabama, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Stanford, Oklahoma State, Boise State and Clemson. The only teams undefeated and still unranked in the AP Top 25 are Texas Tech and Houston. Why no love for the Red Raiders and Cougars? Texas Tech (4-0) has beaten three FBS teams with a combined record of 3-10 and none better than .500. Houston (5-0) has four victories against FBS teams with a combined record of 6-14, none better than 2-3. Sticking with the Cougars, their schedule doesnt get substantially tougher.

10 in a game that was more lopsided than the score indicated. The Saints (3-1) scored touchdowns on their first two possessions and looked well on their way to scoring 30 points for the fourth consecutive week. But Brees threw two interceptions, John Kasay missed two long field goals and the Saints managed just nine points in the second half. If you had told us before the game that youre going to have 500 yards of total offense and youre going to convert 50 percent of our third downs, we would have thought thats 40 points, Brees said. Unfortunately, it was 23 points because we got inside the 20 three times in the second half and didnt come away with touchdowns. So thats disappointing, but feel we have proven that we can move the ball. Now we just got to score touchdowns. It didnt matter against the Jaguars (1-3), who have struggled to score all season. Jacksonville has 39 points in four games, clearly dealing with the growing pains associated with having a rookie quarterback. Blaine Gabbert struggled in his first home start, no surprise since the Saints have given rookie quarterbacks all sorts of problems in three years under defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. Gabbert was erratic all afternoon, throwing high and missing wide-open receivers. He completed 16 of 42 passes for 196 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. He also was sacked three times. He didnt get much help, either. The Jaguars dropped several passes, including one by Maurice Jones-Drew on the opening possession and one by Mike Thomas on the final drive. He definitely had some throws that he would like back, Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said. Like any quarterback in the NFL, hes counting on his guys to make some plays for him. I thought there were some plays we left out there, some plays that we could have made. Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio vowed to open up the offense after last weeks 16-10 loss in Carolina. But it did little good with Gabberts inaccuracy and his teammates not-so-soft hands. New Orleans had far fewer problems. Brees completed 31 of 44 passes. Sproles had 75 yards rushing, 56 yards receiving and 57 yards in returns. Everybody in the stadium holds their breath when he gets it because it could be a touchdown, Brees said. Jimmy Graham caught 10 passes for 132 yards, both career highs, and a score. Drew is a surgeon with the ball, Graham said. He throws to the open man. I just happened to be open quite a bit today. Grahams last catch was a 59-yarder that put the Saints in position to score 30 points with a little more than two minutes remaining, and they certainly tried to get it after Brees got upset about what he felt was a late hit. Just after Brees was sacked by Clint Session, 340pound defensive tackle Terrance Knighton plopped on top of him. Brees got up in a huff, and players from both teams started pushing and shoving. Brees threw deep on the next play, but Devery Henderson stepped out of bounds before making the catch at the goal line. I feel like they were trying to keep their scoring average high, Jaguars defensive end Jeremy Mincey said. They wanted 30, but we didnt let them. Lucroy. The little things matter, said Jerry Hairston Jr., who scored on Lucroys bunt. When you have guys like Braunie and Prince with the big power, the little things add up. Indeed. The Brewers now hold a 2-0 lead in a postseason series for the first time in franchise history and will go for the sweep when Shaun Marcum takes on rookie Josh Collmenter in Game 3 in Arizona on Tuesday. Lucroy keyed a five-run sixth inning, and delivered right after Diamondbacks reliever Brad Ziegler became angry about a balk call. Thats when rookie Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke put on a play hed already seen Lucroy successfully bunt a few times this season. Good teams always take advantage of the other teams mistakes, Braun said. Theres no doubt coming into that inning, they had the momentum. With the score 4-all and runners at the corners with one out, Hairston took a couple of half-steps and sprinted home as Lucroy bunted toward first base. Zieglers awkward flip went wide of catcher Miguel Montero and the Diamondbacks imploded from there, with Milwaukee taking a 9-4 lead. It was crazy, Montero said. I didnt even get a chance to second-guess myself. It was like, OK, here we go boom, boom, boom, boom. Im like, Whats going on over here? Brewers starter Zack Greinke struggled in his first postseason appearance, giving up three home runs and leaving without a decision. He was 11-0 at Miller Park, helping the Brewers win a majors-best 57 games at home. The Diamondbacks seemed poised for a come-frombehind victory after notching 48 this season when Paul Goldschmidt, Chris Young and Justin Upton all homered off Greinke to tie the game. Instead, Arizona went 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position and Milwaukee kept its cool until the sixth, when seven consecutive batters reached with one out. Hairston, making his second straight start in place of Casey McGehee at third, doubled to chase Diamondbacks starter Daniel Hudson. Ziegler entered, and was called for a balk when he spun and found no one behind Hairston for a pickoff attempt as he attempted to throw. Ziegler pointed down at his foot, upset at second base umpire Bruce Dreckmans call, and walked the free-swinging Yuniesky Betancourt on four pitches. quarterback Tom Brady was among many who had pink towels hanging from their waists. Philadelphias Michael Vick wore a padded pink glove on his bruised nonthrowing right hand in the Eagles game against San Francisco. In San Diego, the Chargers had dashes of pink in the San Diego and Chargers that were painted in the end zones. Chargers nose tackle Antonio Garay took his tribute a step further, having a pink ribbon shaved into the left side of his head. Many of the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers wore pink-and-white gloves and pink-and-black shoes, including Clay Matthews, running back James Starks and safety Charlie Peprah. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers had a pink wristband on his left arm during the game against Denver. Arizonas Larry Fitzgerald, a spokesman for the league-wide awareness for women to be regularly tested for the illness, wore pink shoes in the Cardinals loss to the New York Giants. His mother died of the disease. when Busch would accelerate on the second. I hate leaving points on the table, and we have these first three, Johnson said. Losing to Busch had to sting. Busch made his move off the final restart with 43 laps, leaving Johnson and the rest of the field in the mirror. Johnsons reign was considered by some to be on the ropes after he finished 10th and 18th in the first two Chase races. But his strong result on one of his favorite tracks moved him only 13 points behind the leaders and feeling confident. He has five straight top 10s, including one win, at Kansas. Giving up a win by not getting a good restart, Ill think about it tonight, Johnson said. But big-picture wise, well take it. The winning move against Johnson made the victory more meaningful for Busch. Two of the sports top drivers have developed a longsimmering rivalry trading paint and barbs over the years. It reached a boiling part at Richmond when Busch called Johnson a five-time chump. To beat your arch nemesis, thats just icing on the cake. Thats pretty sweet, Busch said. Johnson, who led 157 laps, was second and Edwards was third. Edwards, who won the Dover Nationwide race on Saturday, dominated most of the race until a pit road speeding penalty cost him a lap. Without that infraction, Edwards just might have won the race and made it a weekend sweep. I definitely took myself out of position to fight for the win by doing that, Edwards said. Its something thats painful. Chase drivers dotted the rest of the field. Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch were fifth and sixth. Harvick was 10th. Tony Stewart lost the points lead he built after winning the first two Chase races and finished 25th. Other Chase results were: Jeff Gordon 12th, Denny Hamlin 18th, Brad Keselowski 20th, Ryan Newman 23rd and Dale Earnhardt Jr. 24th. Earnhardt, Newman, Hamlin are about out of contention. Gordon needs to get hot fast. Non-Chase drivers filled four of the top-10 spots. Kasey Kahne was fourth, AJ Allmendinger was seventh, Clint Bowyer eighth, and Marcos Ambrose ninth. Busch started the Chase ranked seventh in the standings and opened with a solid sixth at Chicagoland Speedway. He struggled at New Hampshire and finished 22nd. He found the right combination at Dover, where he qualified second and carried the position into Victory Lane and up the standings. Weve got such a long way to go in this Chase, Busch said. Thats what were really focused on. Busch won the first Chase by beating Johnson by eight points for his only NASCAR championship. He credited owner Roger Penske for giving him the equipment and crew needed to compete for a title. The car just had a good feel all weekend long, Busch said. Its a good feel he has to keep rolling all the way through Homestead if he wants to race away with the championship. from Tampa Bays 2003 Super Bowl winner. Hes the oldest player on the leagues youngest team. He also knows what its like to be a young guy heading into his first Monday night game. The Bucs were fixtures in prime time during their best years, when the roster had a collection of high-profile personalities, including Warren Sapp, Derrick Brooks, John Lynch, Simeon Rice, Keyshawn Johnson, Warrick Dunn and Mike Alstott. When we were good back in the 90s and the early part of this decade, we were pretty well known. We had a lot of name guys. Guys who were popular across the league. Weve yet to have that kind of exposure with the guys in this locker room, that kind of attention, so this is huge for us, Barber said. Coming off their Super Bowl title, the Bucs played on Monday night three times in 2003, going 2-1. Barber will never forget the loss 38-35 in overtime to the Colts. Manning threw for 386 yards and Indianapolis overcame a 21point deficit in the final five minutes of regulation. Believe me, that was a great game for 55 minutes. I scored a touchdown late on an interception, but they showed their resiliency, Barber said. It was a frustrating loss. I still cringe when I look at those highlights on NFL Network as one of the best comebacks ever. This is our chance, this 2011 team, to prove who we are. I think were all excited about it. Colts coach Jim Caldwell and defensive end Dwight Freeney also were part of that game and remember what it meant for Indianapolis, as well as former coach, Tony Dungy, who was returning to Raymond James Stadium for the first time since being fired by the Bucs following the 2001 season. It was played on Dungys birthday, although Freeney doesnt recall learning that until the game was over. Thats one I always will remember, just based on the fact that everybody in the building thought we were going to lose, said Freeney, who remembers receiving messages from people who called his telephone while the Bucs were building a 35-14 lead. We ended up winning the game, and that kind of became a staple for us as an organization and team that we never say quit, never say die, Freeney added. You never give up because you never know what might happen. That was an example of that. The Bucs were one of the leagues biggest surprises a year ago, winning 10 games but narrowly missed the playoffs. They lost this seasons opener to Detroit, but rebounded with wins over Minnesota and Atlanta. Freeney understands why they might feel their success is going unnoticed. They are definitely a team to be reckoned with and not to take lightly. ... But I do understand how this league is, the Colts star said. Its like a rookie who has a good year: Can you make it two years? ... I can definitely see how they could be underappreciated, but I definitely respect them. Morris said the Bucs wont underestimate Indianapolis, either. The Colts are winless without Manning, whos recovering from neck surgery. With Kerry Collins (concussion-like symptoms) status in doubt for Monday night, Curtis Painter could make his first NFL start. Theyre running their system, theyre playing hard defense, theyre playing their style of offense, which is high tempo, run the football, do all the correct things, and they just havent been fortunate enough to win, Morris said. Weve got to go out there and not let anything creep into our head that were any bigger than what we are. Were 2-1. Were tied for the NFC Souths best team, Morris added. If we want to remain that weve got to play our best game. ... Right now theyre struggling as far as wins and losses, but that could change any day.C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S COREBOARD NASCAR Sprint Cup-AAA 400 Results Sunday at Dover International Speedway, Dover, Del.

Granderson hit a solo homer off Tigers reliever Joaquin Benoit in the eighth. Pretty soon, the rain and all the drama filled Yankee Stadium. Game 3 is Monday at Detroit. In an ace rematch, of sorts, CC Sabathia is scheduled to start for the Yankees against Justin Verlander. The two All-Stars faced each other in the series opener Friday night, but the game was suspended after only 1 innings because of rain. The Yankees lost three of four this year at Detroit and are 22-25 at Comerica Park since it opened in 2000. Its one of only two AL stadiums where New York has a losing record. Playing on the scheduled travel day, the Tigers now fly home with a chance to take command of the series, just as they did in 2006, when they lost the opener in New Y ork before sweeping three straight. Perhaps planning to play two more days in a row in Detroit, Yankees manager Joe Girardi did not use his top late-game relievers, Rafael Soriano and Dave Robertson, and Detroit added a run in the ninth on Don Kellys RBI single for a 5-1 lead. So Valverde entered in the ninth with a four-run lead. He led the majors in going 49 of 49 in save chances this year, and the Tigers were a perfect 83-0 this season when taking an edge into the ninth. But this was not a save situation for Valverde, and he was far from perfect. Nick Swisher sent Valverdes first pitch over the right-field wall for a home run. Jorge Posada followed with his first triple of the year and Russell Martin walked. With crowd rooting for a rally, Andruw Jones hit a sacrifice fly that made it 5-2. Derek Jeter struck out, and the rain that has hounded this playoff series from the start returned in buckets. Granderson then lifted his foul pop near the Detroit dugout and Avila tracked it. But the All-Star catcher slipped on the mat in the ondeck circle, lost his balance and had no play. matches due to the weather. Warrens goal for his team is to continue playing well before districts and hopefully regionals, later this month. The Lady Panthers, poised to bring another county championship to Lecanto are led by Kimberly Hafner, Jennifer Hafner, Chynna Liu, Keriah Tettenburn, and Jessica Fee. An added advantage for the Lady Panthers is theyre playing on their home course. Crystal River Pirates For the Lady Pirates this year, it has been shorthanded from a team perspective. Theyve been playing with less than four golfers all season and are in this county championship to compete from an individual perspective. The three Lady Pirates that will be competing at the match will be Erica Suarez, Lani Patides and Marissa Wilder, who recently rejoined the team giving them three players.

The family film dethroned The Lion King in the weekend box office, collecting $14.2 million in its second weekend at the box office. Today is Monday, Oct. 3, the 276th day of 2011. There are 89 days left in the year. Todays Highlight: On Oct. 3, 1951, the New York Giants captured the National League pennant by a score of 5-4 as Bobby Thomson hit a three-run homer off the Brooklyn Dodgers Ralph Branca in the shot heard round the world. On this date: In 1789, President George Washington declared Nov. 26, 1789, a day of Thanksgiving to express gratitude for the creation of the United States of America. In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday in November Thanksgiving Day. In 1941, The Maltese Falcon the version starring Humphrey Bogart and directed by John Huston opened in New York. In 1961, The Dick Van Dyke Show, also starring Mary Tyler Moore, made its debut on CBS. In 1991, Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton entered the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. In 1995, the jury in the O.J. Simpson murder trial found the former football star not guilty of the 1994 slayings of his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman (however, Simpson was later found liable in a civil trial). Ten years ago: A man aboard a Greyhound bus in Tennessee slashed the drivers throat, causing a crash that killed seven passengers, including the attacker. Five years ago: Americans John C. Mather and George F. Smoot won the Nobel Prize in physics. One year ago: Rulingparty candidate Dilma Rousseff, trying to become Brazils first female leader, fell short of getting a majority of votes in presidential elections. (Rousseff prevailed in a runoff against her centrist rival, Jose Serra.) Todays Birthdays: Author Gore Vidal is 86. Rock and roll star Chubby Checker is 70. Baseball Hall of Famer Dave Winfield is 60. Civil rights activist the Rev. Al Sharpton is 57. Golfer Fred Couples is 52. Actor Clive Owen is 47. Thought for Today: Life has got a habit of not standing hitched. You got to ride it like you find it. You got to change with it. Woody Guthrie, American folk singersongwriter (1912-1967). Gene Simmons marries girlfriend LOS ANGELES Rocker Gene Simmons and his longtime girlfriend, actress Shannon Tweed have tied the knot. Publicist Dawn Miller offered her congratulations to the new married couple on Facebook. Simmons and Tweed have been a couple for years. Their engagement announcement last month surprised many fans. People magazine reported the couple exchanged vows they wrote themselves. The magazine said about 400 guests attended the Saturday evening ceremony outside a Beverly Hills hotel. The 62-year-old Kiss bassist and the 54-year-old Tweed have two children. The new season of the reality show Gene Simmons Family Jewels premieres Tuesday on the A&E network. NPR names new president, CEO WASHINGTON NPR has named a new president and CEO. Gary Knell the longtime president and CEO of Sesame Workshop, will take over leadership of the public radio network Dec. 1. Knell succeeds Vivian Schiller who resigned under pressure in March after a former NPR fundraiser was caught on camera calling the tea party racist. The episode led some conservatives to call for an end to federal funding for NPR, but Congress ultimately retained the funds as part of a budget deal in April. In his previous role, Knell headed the organization that produces Sesame Street. Ferris Bueller at Wrigley FieldCHICAGO Ferris Bueller has returned to Wrigley Field, though this time he didnt have to cut class. And he helped set a world record. The 1986 film Ferris Buellers Day Off about three truant teenagers adventures around Chicago was screened Saturday night at the historic baseball field. The event helped mark the films 25th anniversary. The trio attends a Chicago Cubs game at the park in one scene. In another, Ferris lip syncs Danke Schoen after getting onto a parade float. Prompted by that classic scene, more than 900 viewers sang the song before the screening. A representative from the Guinness Book of World Records confirms it broke the previous 500person record for the most people singing in a round. D AVIDG ERMAIN AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES A dolphin has dethroned The Lion King at the weekend box office. The Warner Bros. family film Dolphin Tale held up well with $14.2 million in its second weekend to take the No. 1 spot from The Lion King, the Disney reissue that had been the top movie for the past two weekends. The Lion King slipped to third place with $11.1 million, just behind Sonys Brad Pitt baseball tale Moneyball, which was No. 2 in its second weekend with $12.5 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. Dolphin Tale features Harry Connick Jr., Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman in a real-life story about strangers who team up to help an injured dolphin. The movie had debuted a week earlier at No. 3, closely behind The Lion King and Moneyball, but it earned good word-of-mouth that kept fans coming. Theres just something about a dolphin, said Jeff Goldstein, general sales manager for Warner Bros. It just looks interesting, and it looks wholesome and compelling and fun. The three holdover films held off a rush of new wide releases. In a photo finish for the No. 4 spot were Summit Entertainments cancer comic drama /50, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen, with $8.85 million and Sonys Christian-themed police drama Courageous with $8.8 million. Debuting at No. 6 with $8.2 million was Universals Dream House, a fright flick starring Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts. The weekends other new wide release, the 20th Century Fox romantic comedy Whats Your Number? starring Anna Faris and Chris Evans, flopped at No. 8 with $5.6 million. It was an unusual weekend when carry-over films continued to rule the market, with family crowds particularly strong. Normally, fall is when you get Oscar contenders and R-rated, more-challenging films, said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for boxoffice tracker Hollywood.com. But now looking at Lion King and Dolphin Tale, that says summer is not the only time when family audiences want to go to the movies. Dolphin Tale raised its total to $37.5 million, while Moneyball lifted its domestic haul to $38.5 million. The Lion King has pulled in $79.7 million in its 3-D re-release, adding to the nearly $800 million worldwide the animated blockbuster earned in its original 1994 run and a 2002 reissue. It also was an unusually uplifting weekend for Hollywood, with Dolphin Tale and the rest of the topfive movies all telling inspirational stories. Moneyball stars Pitt as Oakland As general manager Billy Beane, who beat the odds and built a contending team on a tiny budget. The Lion King remains one of the great animated sagas as a wrongly exiled cub returns to triumph over his wicked uncle. /50 chronicles the stirring trials of a patient (Gordon-Levitt) fighting cancer with fierce spirit and great humor. Courageous, from the makers of the Christianthemed films Fireproof and Facing the Giants, follows four policemen struggling to stick to their faith in God on the job and at home. Marketed heavily to church groups, Courageous brought in its crowds in a relatively narrow release of 1,161 theaters. The other top-10 movies ranged from 2,340 to 3,515 theaters. The competition was pretty steep with all these inspirationaltype films, but it still succeeded in such a big way, said Rory Bruer, head of distribution for Sony. In limited release, a long-delayed film with True Blood star Anna Paquin failed to find much of an audience. Margaret, starring Paquin as a teen caught in a moral crisis over her culpability in a fatal traffic accident, pulled in a scant $7,496 from two theaters, averaging $3,748 a cinema. That compares to $7,580 a theater for Courageous, which had the best average among the top-10 films. Margaret, whose cast also includes Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo and Matthew Broderick, was shot in 2005 then delayed by lawsuits involving director Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count on Me) and distributor Fox Searchlight over the final cut of the film. Gene Simmons Gary Knell Spotlight on PEOPLE Inspiring films C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Todays Birthday There are strong indications that the year ahead could be an extremely rewarding one for you both materially and socially. However, strive to lead a balanced life so that each area can develop in ways that complement one another. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Check your sources once again if there is something for which youve long been searching but havent yet found. Your persistent quest might finally reach a satisfactory end. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Your views and opinions will have a greater impact on those whom you counsel than you may expect. Dont hesitate to give advice when asked. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Although you may have thought those financial seeds you recently planted had gone to the winds, you might be pleasantly surprised by signs of sprouting. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) New challenges can be conquered if you draw upon what youve learned from similar experiences in the past. Dont hesitate to put this new knowledge to work. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If you have something good to contribute, there is no reason why you shouldnt make your presence felt. However, do so in ways that wont make others view you as a right boor. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Because hopeful, new conditions are stirring on the horizon, it is important for you to stay in close touch with valuable contacts.

B6 M ONDAY, O CTOBER 3, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT English poet John Keats said: Dont be discouraged by a failure. It can be a positive experience. Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, inasmuch as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and every fresh experience points out some form of error that we shall afterward carefully avoid. In other words, we should learn from our mistakes. But I wish to home in on points. If you wish to make fewer errors at the bridge table, count high-card points. During my Norwegian cruise I gave two lessons on this topic, one from the angle of the defenders and one from the perspective of the declarer. Taking them in chronological order, we will start with the defenders. You are East, defending against three no-trump. West leads the spade nine. What are your thoughts? A nine-lead is always top of nothing. So, as East, you know that South has the ace, king and 10 of spades seven high-card points. And since his one-no-trump response showed 6 to 10, he cannot also have the heart ace. So, take the first round of diamonds and shift to the heart three. When you lead a low card in a suit that no one has yet played, it says you have at least one honor in that suit and you are trying to win tricks in it. So West should take his ace and fire back a heart, giving you four tricks in that suit to go with the diamond ace. Note that if you duck the first round of diamonds, South runs for home with three spades, one diamond and five clubs. When you can see how to defeat the contract, go for it.

During college, he lived on his own and had a girlfriend, but just before graduation, they broke up. My son had a hard time coping, and when he graduated, he came back to live at home. In those two years, he hasnt applied for any jobs. When I arranged a few interviews for him, he didnt do well. I believe he suffers from severe anxiety and gets nervous when meeting people, especially older men who tend to be the ones interviewing him. I have begged him to get counseling, but he insists there is nothing wrong. He stays in his room all day and only comes out for dinner. His friends have moved on with their lives, and he barely speaks to any of them. I have talked to him and even threatened to kick him out, but I cant follow through. Where would he go? Please help me find a way to get him to face the world. Worried Mom Dear Worried: Your son seems depressed and lethargic. Tell him counseling is a condition for remaining in the house. You will have to do a little enabling to start. Ask your physician for a counseling referral, call to explain the problem and make an appointment, and then be sure your son keeps it, even if that means driving him there and escorting him inside. Beyond that, however, he must take responsibility for his own recovery, which may include medication. Also look into help for yourself. You may need to follow through on your threat to toss him out, and you might need some support to do it. Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for slightly more than a year. How do I handle the constant stream of questions from family and friends wondering when were going to have a baby? I have had two miscarriages and simply dont know how to respond. Do I tell them the truth, which is very painful? How can I get them to stop asking every time they see me? I know they mean well, but this seems like a rather personal question. Just because a couple has no children doesnt mean they arent trying. New Bride in the Midwest Dear Bride: We are continually amazed that nosy people think someone elses fertility is their business. You are not obligated to respond to these questions. You can politely ask, Why do you need to know? But a reader once wrote that she used to be that kind of nosy person until a friend replied that she was trying desperately to get pregnant and it was too painful to discuss. That was the response that finally made her stop asking. Dear Annie: This is for Hurting for My Daughter, who was being verbally bullied at school. I, too, am a rural town mom. I have watched both of my daughters endure the harassing phone calls, text messages and snide remarks, simply because they didnt fit into the in crowd. I spent many late nights wiping tears, some of them my own. I always told my daughters that someday these Barbie dolls would no longer be the top dogs. I also told them that high school is only a small passage through the journey of life, and that after they graduated, they would look back in amazement at the drama that encompassed them. I am happy to say that high school is behind us now, and my girls are well-adjusted, respectful adults who would never treat anyone this way. Tell Hurting to give her daughter love, encouragement, the belief that this is just a bump in the long journey of life and the wisdom to take the high road. A Former Hurting Small-Town Mom Dear Former: When youre living it, high school torments seem as if they will last forever. But those who can get through the experience will be stronger for it.
