FOCUS ON Hamlets RED LEVEL, CITRONELLE, HOLDER, ARROWHEAD, DE ROSA Get out when you can A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterWhen Diana Finegan welcomed back a former longtime victim of domestic violence to her agencys office, she imbued empathy and compassion. She quizzed the victim about her well-being and heaped praise for her emotional and physical progress against the psychological scourge of one persons power of domination, mental and physical, over another. Finegan, executive director of the Citrus Abuse Shelter Association (CASA), coaxed an air of confidence out of the victim we call Sara. The Chronicle will not name the victim because of the sensitive nature of the story. Sara interjected as Finegan offered various reasons victims of domestic violence should hightail it out of a relationship at first sign of trouble. Get out, get out. It is not worth it. Look at me; I am doing fine now, Sara emphatically said with a steely confidence that didnt seem to exist mere minutes earlier. But Finegan concurred with Saras assertion and said every victim who walks through her agency doors gets the maximum help they can offer her and thats a lot for sometimes bewildered and helpless victims. We assign people to work with them, so they understand that domestic abuse is a crime of physical and/or sexual violence, which ultimately is about power and control, Finegan said as she pulled out a brochure which features a circle in the center. Among the spokes of that wheel of violence were some of the many features and excuses used to justify the abuse. They include: using intimidation to cause fear in the victim; using coercion and threats such as suicide, leaving her stranded and making her do illegal things; When should you take your children trick-or-treating? According to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, Halloween is always on Oct. 31, which falls on a Monday this year. Door-todoor trick-or-treating is a parents decision.

Snapshot of Arrowhead, community on the Withlacoochee River N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterARROWHEAD Nancy Kelly is a typical resident of Arrowhead. The owner of Hillbillys Tack & Feed uptown from the Hernando community off Stokes Ferry Road that she has called home since 1976, she believes in live and let live. She says the residents of Arrowhead are as diverse as a community can be, so typical can mean anything. Its where you have shacks next to million-dollar homes, which I like, she said, adding that living in Arrowhead has taught her that you cant judge a book by its cover. Arrowhead has attracted some non-conformist, colorful-looking, even scary-looking characters, but as Kelly has discovered, many would give the shirts off their backs or their last nickel to help a neighbor. Thats not to say everyone in the community next to the Withlacoochee River is an upright, lawabiding citizen. The area has been known for illegal drug activity. But for the most part, the people are like Kelly, folks who are trying to live life the best they can for themselves and their families. We bought raw land here in 1976 when there was nothing out here, she said. When my kids were little, we spent most of our time at the spring, Little Blue, swimming.

N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS Sonny Cooter woke up Saturday morning to a light rain. However, by the time he arrived at the eighth annual Great American Cooter Festival, the sun had come out and had begun drying the grass at Liberty Park. He was a bit tired from his appearance at the Rock the Block concert event the night before, but through his interpreters said he was holding out well and by noon, Sonny was giving two thumbs up to the event that bears his name. City councilman Ken Hinkle, dressed in white from head to toe as Boss Hogg from the Dukes of Hazzard, said the city council had decreed that there would be good weather, which put an even bigger smile on Sonny Cooters face. It helped that there was some great food being sold by food vendors everything from barbecue and Southern-style pulled pork sliders to Greek shish kabobs and gyros, kettle corn and funnel cakes. Plus, Sonny indicated that local agencies and organizations had tons of information and there was ample opportunity to get a jump start on holiday gift shopping. The eighth annual 2011 Cooter Festival is without a doubt the largest ever, said Inverness city manager Frank DiGiovanni. People have responded by the thousands, and we couldnt be more pleased. McKenzi Maynard, age 8, was also pleased on Saturday after being crowned Little Miss Cooter Princess. Dressed in a pretty black dress and a tiara atop her long blonde hair, she said winning the title made her happy. The best part is, I get a crown, she said. From live music and hourly Cooter Cup live turtle races to bounce house activities, dogs playing soccer and the tallest pinball game, there was something for everybody Saturday. And the fun continues Sunday, beginning at noon. Register for the Cooterween costume contest at the city of Inverness tent for the 1 p.m. contest. Sundays activities include a comic and magic show at 2:45 p.m., Zero Gravity kids band at 3:15 p.m. and trick-ortreating at 4 p.m. Plus, food, information and merchandise vendors.

M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterBEVERLY HILLS Nereyda Reyes cut open the top of the pumpkin and told her students to take a peek. The reaction was predictable. Eeeeyyyoouuuu! they exclaimed. She reached in and pulled out seeds and pieces of pumpkin, showing them up close what was inside. One seed caught her attention. This pumpkin seed was sprouting in there! Mrs. Reyes said, showing students the sprout. Ive never seen that before. Mrs. Reyes, who teaches kindergarten at Forest Ridge Elementary School, led her 15 students Friday morning through autumn-related centers. At each table, students made cookies with M&Ms and frosting, glued together paper spiders or experienced the thrill of sticking their hands into a pumpkin. Its all fun and games in Mrs. Reyes class with a lesson behind it. Its all based on what weve learned, she said. Those lessons included preweighing the pumpkin and learning about spiders and their webs. Mariann Flynn, whose daughter Emily is one of Mrs. Reyes students, was on hand to help out. I think this is really good. Its hands-on, Flynn said. Mrs. Reyes is a great teacher. Emily is learning to read and write. Emily was clearly having fun. I like pumpkins. I like making cookies, she said. Asked what the inside of the pumpkin felt like, Emily said: Mush. Classmate Hannah Mimnaugh agreed. It felt, Hannah said, really mushy.Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at (352) 563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com.

From staff reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE School Days School Days Men accused of domestic battery A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterA Citrus Springs man is facing domestic battery charges after he reportedly chased a woman out of a building screaming and yelling and grabbing her face, according to a Citrus County Sheriffs Office report. Mark Thomas Kelley, 39, a physical therapy director, was allegedly noticed by a witness darting toward the woman screaming and then grabbed a cell phone out of the womans hand as she was attempting to make a call. Kelley then reportedly made a motion as if he were going to strike the woman, causing the woman to jerk her head as if she had been hit. He was observed grabbing the womans face and making her look at him and then dragged her toward the building despite her protestations. Investigators say Kelley admitted to a verbal fight with the woman and to grabbing her face. He denied any other acts of violence. He was arrested Oct. 24 with no bond. The woman denied any altercation with Kelley. In an unrelated case, an emotionally distraught woman allegedly told investigators she was roughed up by a man which left a mark on her. John Frances Paquin, 29, of Inverness, was charged with domestic battery Oct. 24 for reportedly picking up the woman by the rib cage and forcibly carrying her into a room during an argument. He then allegedly grabbed her and pushed her down as she was trying to get away from him. Paquin then reportedly grabbed her hair and continued to struggle with her and ripped off a piece of her clothing. She eventually freed herself by running into the next room and Paquin allegedly followed her and kicked the bedroom door off its hinges. As she made it outside the residence, he reportedly told her he would seriously hurt her if she told. The woman then headed to her mothers house where she called for help. When investigators found Paquin, he allegedly told them it was all the womans fault and he was kept prisoner in the bedroom by the woman; that is why he kicked the door off the hinges. Paquin was arrested with no bond. Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at (352) 564-2925 or asidibe@chronicleonline. com. Woman, 87, accused of stabbing husband, 93 LAKE PLACID, Fla. Authorities said an 87-year-old central Florida woman has been charged with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of her 93-year-old husband. Highlands County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Nell Hays said deputies found Chester Smith suffering from multiple stab wounds when they responded Wednesday to a 911 call from a Lake Placid home. Smith was pronounced dead at a hospital. Hays told The Tampa Tribune deputies found Smiths wife, Doris, to be distraught and disoriented. Doris Smith also was hospitalized. Hays said that over the next few days information developed which resulted in the arrest of Mrs. Smith. Jail records show Doris Smith was booked without bond on the murder charge Friday afternoon. Hays said she remains hospitalized under the supervision of Highlands County Detention personnel. Police officer charged with reckless driving MIAMI Florida Highway Patrol said a Miami police officer was arrested at gunpoint and charged with reckless driving after going 120 mph on the turnpike. According to an FHP report, a trooper spotted a Miami police patrol car changing lanes in a dangerous manner around 6:30 a.m. on Oct. 11. FHP said the patrol car ignored warnings and led a brief high-speed chase before stopping near Hollywood. FHP spokesman Mark Wysocky told The Miami Herald the trooper drew her gun as she approached Officer Fausto Lopez for her own safety. According to FHP, Lopez said he was speeding because he was late for his off-duty job. Administrative action against Lopez will depend on the outcome of the criminal case.

Getting their hands dirty Youngsters get autumn lessons in pumpkins, spiders Suspects arrested in separate Citrus County incidents County commission gives $15,000 for port study C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterThe county last week allocated $15,000 from the business license tax reserve fund toward a Port Citrus feasibility study. At last weeks meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC), Commissioner Winn Webb explained why the county should support the concept of Port Citrus. Webb began by reading a message he said the board had sent to the Florida Seaports Council, the nonprofit corporation that serves as the professional association for the states 14 seaports, of which the Citrus County Port Authority is a member. Theres more great news for Florida this week, Webb read. Congress finally passed and President Obama signed a free trade agreement with Panama and Colombia, which will greatly benefit Floridas economy and business for years to come. This agreement makes it even more important that we continue to invest in our ports and infrastructure. By doing so, Florida will get the full benefit of these expanded trade opportunities and the jobs they will create. The measure, which included South Korea, passed Oct. 12. Several Republicans in the Florida delegation welcomed it. U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, chairman of the Panama Caucus and member of the Ways and Means Committee, said it was an opportunity to generate jobs. U.S. Rep. David Rivera on the House Foreign Affairs Committee said the agreement would open up new markets that will help job creators hire new employees and grow their businesses. Webb spoke about the depth of the barge canal because comments in the Chronicles Sound Off and letters to the editor columns have said the canal is too shallow to be feasible. Were currently using it right now, Webb said. Two barges go out at a time. Each barge contains one thousand tons thats a lot, thats more than this room if you pack it full. To say its not feasible, people dont know what they are talking about. Webb said when the barges enter the canal they take two feet of draft, but go out fully loaded with eight feet of draft. The tugboat thats pushing them has a deeper draft than the barges do, Webb said. And yet its being done. To people who say its not deep enough, Webb pointed out that Marion County has created a 500-acre inland port. And they have zero inches of water, Webb said. They dont understand the concept of what moving and trading with other countries and bringing merchandising in and out is all about. Its not just about water. Its about having the mechanism to move items from Point A to Point B in the cheapest manner. Webb said Citrus County has an opportunity, a very unique, maybe once-in-alifetime opportunity to just have a small slice of this pie. For us to even think about passing up this opportunity, to me, its just not frugal. Commissioner Joe Meek said the business license tax reserve fund had sufficient funds for the county to add $15,000 to complete a matching funds package for a $50,000 grant from the seaports council. The Citrus County Economic Development Council would put up $10,000 from private funds. Workforce Connection offered $25,000. One of the things we talked about at the EDC was the real opportunity this port has and the role the EDC has in trying to diversify the economy, Meek said. John Siefert, EDC executive director, said, We had near unanimous support for the feasibility study. The port could be a major economic stimulus for this county. Untold benefits will accrue to us. Were working also with Marion County, who is looking at an inland port and this will be complimentary to that.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or (352) 564-2916.

Between 2008 and June 2011, there have been 2,154 arrests and nearly 4,000 offenses for domestic violence in Citrus County. Finegan said when these signs appear in your relationship, it is imperative to seek help and do it quickly. She urges calling law enforcement if there are threats and violence to seek an injunction and then call CASA for temporary shelter. We help with referrals and counseling if they want it. The biggest problem for us sometimes is trying to keep them away from the abuser because some of them have been told they were worthless for so long and isolated for so long, it becomes extremely hard to get out, she added.

Call the 24-hour hotline at (352) 341-8111; during weekday business hours, the line rings to CASAs outreach center in Inverness, where staff and volunteers are prepared to accept donations from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.Chronicle reporter A.B.

He was 84. Savile, known for his garish tracksuits, chunky gold jewelry and boundless enthusiasm for pop music and charity work, was the host of two long-running British television programs and claimed to have been a longtime confidant to Prince Charles and exPrime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Rarely seen without his trademark large cigar, Savile had initially worked in a coal mine as a teenager before embracing music and built a national profile as a disc jockey first in Britains dance halls and later on radio, including the renowned Radio Luxembourg. West Yorkshire Police confirmed that officers had been called Saturday to Saviles home in the city of Leeds, northern England, and said that there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death. The cause of Saviles death is not yet known. Savile claimed to have been the first DJ in the world to use two turntables enabling continuous music to be played inventing the techniques later embraced by modern dance music, and to have pioneered the use of records, rather than live bands, at nightclubs. History has it that I was the very, very first in the whole world to organize a disco event, he told the BBC in May. Bestowed with a knighthood for his charity fundraising, Savile was best known as the host of the BBCs Top Of The Pops weekly television pop music show, launching the program in 1964 and returning to present its final edition in 2006. For almost 20 years from 1975, Savile also hosted the hugely popular series Jimll Fix It, in which the broadcaster responded to childrens letters by arranging for their wishes to be realized. Savile championed a host of good causes frequently running marathons to raise money and led work to collect 20 million pounds ($32 million) for the creation of a national spinal injuries center at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in southern England. He was a very energetic character, friend and fellow radio presenter David Hamilton told Britains Sky News television. But most of all, I remember him as just a totally flamboyant, over the top, larger than life character and as he was on the air,A6 S UNDAY, O CTOBER 30, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE Cellular & Roman Shades Plantation Shutters Ado Wraps Custom Drapery Top Treatments Etc. 628-7888 CALL NOW!

K EN T HOMAS Associated PressWASHINGTON Barack Obama: Mr. Likeable. At least thats what the presidents advisers hope Americans who are frustrated by the economy and looking for someone to blame will remember when they vote next November. His team is emphasizing the presidents regular guy appeal, putting him in small-town diners, at roadside pit stops and on Jay Lenos couch. Those settings are designed to highlight his likeability, a political strength, even as the economy, a political weakness, sputters along a year before the 2012 election. During his recent bus tour through North Carolina and Virginia, the president surprised lunchtime crowds at small-town restaurants and barbecue joints. He took fielded questions from students at a rural high school. One girl asked him if he knew pop singer Justin Bieber. While out West last week, Obama talked with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show about his trip to a popular chicken and waffle house in Los Angeles, where he ordered the No. 9 Country Boy on the menu. The president also joked about first lady Michelle Obamas penchant for handing out healthy Halloween treats. Shes been giving, for the last few years, kids fruit and raisins in a bag. And I said, The White House is going to get egged. ... You need to throw some candy in there ... a couple Reeses Pieces or something, Obama said to laughter. All kidding aside, Obamas strong personal favorability ratings in polls are the counterpoint to his sagging job approval numbers. Advisers privately acknowledge thats what is helping his overall standing hold fairly steady in the mid-40s. A recent Associated Press-GfK poll showed that 54 percent of adults had a favorable impression of the president, while 44 percent had an unfavorable one. Its a picture virtually unchanged since the end of his first year in office. The same survey found that 78 percent considered Obama a likeable person. Compare that with Obamas job approval ratings in the same poll: 46 percent approve while 52 percent disapprove of his performance in office. As November 2012 draws closer and the economy shows little sign of improvement, its unclear whether his personality will help him offset the frustration many voters feel about economic progress. Pollsters say a presidents job approval rating tends to more predictive of re-election, but when people like a president personally, theyre more inclined to be open to his arguments. Its better to be liked or admired than not to be, especially when youre in tough times, said Democratic pollster Geoff Garin. Added Republican pollster David Winston: He has a clear track record at this point and thats what his job approval reflects. He cant avoid his record but its not like people are not willing to listen to him. American politics has seen its share of presidents promoting their personal side, perhaps even more so in the Internet age, as they work to connect with voters. Many have waxed nostalgic about mixing with people outside the nations capital. But with the country divided over his policies and worried about the economy, Obama may need to rely on his likeability more than most. His current personal approval ratings fall just below some of his predecessors at this point of his presidency. In early October 2003, 60 percent had a favorable opinion of President George W. Bush, according to Gallup. By the 2004 election, the number had dipped to 51 percent as he won re-election. Bill Clintons personal approval rating grew from 34 percent in April 1992, as he battled for the Democratic nomination, to more than 60 percent by the summer of 1992, according to Gallup. In late September 1995, as he sought a second term, Clinton had a favorability of 61 percent, according to an ABC News/ Washington Postpoll. President George H.W. Bushs favorable ratings exceeded 60 percent in midOctober 1991, according to an ABC/ Washington Postpoll. By the fall of 1992, his personal approval had fallen to the low 40s, according to Gallup, and he lost to Clinton. How voters evaluate the personal and political sides of Obama will play a large role in next years election. Ann Anderson, a college administrator in Homer Glen, Ill., voted for Obama in 2008 but said she would probably support either Republican Mitt Romney or Rick Perry next year. Anderson, an independent, said Obama was a charming, attractive individual and a man of integrity but with so many of her friends and relatives out of work, she wondered about the presidents ability to steer the economy. I dont need a president to be charming. I need him to be an effective leader, Anderson said. Dr. Martin Weinapple, a child psychiatrist in Princeton, N.J., said he would likely support Obama again because he felt the president was someone who thinks things through during tough times. Officially, Obama is focused this fall on getting his jobs plan through Congress. But he tends to show his more playful side at fundraisers, joking about things people can relate to: turning 50 and watching his hair get a little grayer. In Denver, he told students he and the first lady graduated from law school with a combined debt of about $120,000. At a General Motors plant, Obama hopped in the front seat of a compact Chevy Sonic with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak. Sports is one area where connecting with voters comes naturally. During the 2008 campaign, Obama regularly played pickup basketball and famously sunk a threepointer at a military base in Kuwait. For three straight years, the president has talked about his NCAA tournament bracket with ESPNs Andy Katz. Next month he stops in San Diego to watch a Michigan StateNorth Carolina basketball game on the deck of the USS Carl Vinson. A longtime Chicago Bears fan, Obama indulged every sports fans fantasy when he invited the 1985 Super Bowl champions to the White House. The teams first visit was postponed because of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, and never rescheduled. Obama joked about Jim McMahons head bands, the Super Bowl Shuffle and rubbed elbows with former coach Mike Ditka. This is as much fun as I will have as president of the United States, right here, Obama said. This is one of the perks of the job.

The Board has always been committed to the idea that any excess margins SECO might have at the end of the year should be shared with the members. It is one of the significant benefits members have as part of a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative. Capital credits are the accumulation of all prior years revenue after the co-ops expenses have been paid. These credits are applied on a prorata basis to each SECO members account and represent a portion of the total monies paid to the co-op by each customer. SECO CEO Jim Duncan said, our Board of Trustees is keenly aware of the difficult economic times many of our members are facing. They unanimously agreed that continuing our practice of sharing excess revenue with the members in the form of capital credits was the right thing to do, and hopefully will bring some relief to strained household budgets. Counting this years capital credit return, SECO has given $23 million back to the members in the past 16 years. SECO serves customers in Marion, Lake, Sumter, Citrus, Levy, Hernando and Pasco counties. The co-ops service territory is the same size as the state of Delaware.

Snow day Associated Press A pedestrian walks past a parking lot Saturday afternoon as heavy snow continues to fall in Easton, Pa. Snow on the pumpkin! HEBRON, Conn. Sections of the Northeast were bracing for an October snowfall Saturday as a storm moving up the East Coast was expected to combine with a cold air mass and dump anywhere from a dusting of snow to about 10 inches throughout the area. October snowfall records could be broken in parts of southern New England, especially at higher elevations, National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Simpson said. The October record for southern New England is 7.5 inches in Worcester in 1979. Likely to see the most snow will be the Massachusetts Berkshires, the Litchfield Hills in northwestern Connecticut, southwestern New Hampshire and the southern Green Mountains. In Connecticut, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy warned residents that they could lose power due to the anticipated wet, heavy snow.Troopers arrest Tenn. protesters NASHVILLE, Tenn. Tennessee state troopers for the second straight night arrested Wall Street protesters for defying a new nighttime curfew imposed by Republican Gov. Bill Haslam in an effort to disband an encampment near the state Capitol. And for a second time, a Nashville night judge dismissed arrest warrants of the arrested protesters. The Tennessean newspaper reports that Magistrate Tom Nelson told troopers delivering the protesters to jail that he could find no authority anywhere for anyone to authorize a curfew anywhere on Legislative Plaza. Occupy Nashville protesters including many of the 29 arrested in a pre-dawn raid on Friday returned to the Legislative Plaza that evening and remained through the 10 p.m. curfew. To see it from the other side is even more infuriating, said Chip Allen, one of the protesters arrested in the first raid. When youre in it, its almost surreal. This takes on a whole nother flavor. Grounded Associated Press Stranded passenger Dabbia McGuane lines up at the Qantas Airways counter for information Saturday in Hong Kong International Airport as her flight to Sydney was canceled. Due to strikes, Qantas Airways grounded its global fleet indefinitely and locked out workers. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEF N ATION & W ORLD Page A11SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Bomber kills 13 U.S. soldiers Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan A Taliban suicide bomber rammed a van into an armored NATO bus Saturday, killing 13 American troops and four Afghans in the deadliest attack on coalition forces in Kabul since the war began a major setback for the U.S.-led coalition as it begins to draw down combat troops. The explosion sparked a fireball and littered the street with shrapnel and twisted metal hulks. Heavy black smoke poured from burning wreckage at the site along the four-lane highway frequently used by foreign military trainers in the southwestern section of the city. Underscoring the difficulties ahead, the brazen assault occurred on the same day that top NATO and Afghan officials were meeting elsewhere in Kabul to discuss the second phase of shifting security responsibilities to Afghan forces in all or part of 17 of the countrys 34 provinces. It also was a blow to efforts by the U.S. and President Hamid Karzai to forge peace with the fundamentalist Taliban movement as NATO plans to withdraw all its combat troops from the country by the end of 2014, with support for the costly war reaching new lows in the West. Kabul has increasingly been targeted by attacks in recent years, with many blamed on the Haqqani network, an al-Qaida and Taliban-linked movement that operates out of Pakistan. But NATO already has shifted security responsibilities for the capital to the Afghans and foreign forces have little presence on the streets. A similar Taliban attack targeted a NATO convoy on the same road in May 2010, when a suicide bomber struck a convoy, killing 18 people. Among the dead were five American troops and a Canadian colonel. But Saturdays strike was the deadliest since the decade-long war began. The Taliban said the bomber, Abdul Rahman, was driving a Toyota Land Cruiser SUV containing 1,540 pounds of explosives and targeting foreigners providing training for Afghan police. The Taliban, who frequently exaggerate casualty claims, said that 25 people were killed by the blast. The Taliban also claimed responsibility for another suicide bombing outside a government intelligence office in the northwest province of Kunar in which only the bomber was killed. In all, there were three attacks against NATO and Afghan forces, killing at least 21 people. Associated Press A U.S. soldier reacts while seen at the site of a suicide car bomber Saturday in Kabul, Afghanistan. A suicide car bomber struck a NATO convoy on the outskirts of Kabul on Saturday, causing casualties among the NATO service members and Afghan civilians, the U.S.-led coalition said. Afghan officials said three civilians and one policeman were killed. Saturdays suicide strike deadliest since start of decade-long war EU crisis emboldens nationalists Associated PressSTOCKHOLM This weeks debt deal for Europe doubles down on the concept of European integration, and could provide further ammunition for the nationalist movements that have been gaining in popularity partly as a reaction to the idea of a single Europe. In order to back the investment in the euro, leaders in the eurozone have advocated a deepening integration of economic policies, transferring power from the national governments to the European level. But euroskeptics have made advances in arguing that Europes elites are turning the bloc into a federal superstate against the wishes of their citizens. This weeks developments threaten to boost their arguments. This is a big step, only its in the wrong direction, Dutch Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders said. The eurozone rescue plan presents a dilemma for European leaders when it comes to resisting such attacks. Failure risks an implosion of the euro, a giant setback for the European project of forging an ever closer union. But success means deepening integration of economic policies in the eurozone core, transferring power from the national governments to the European level. That would provide further ammunition to the nationalist groups who say Europes elites are turning the bloc into a federal superstate against the wishes of their citizens. If theres anything positive in this its that it sets the stage for a new debate on the EU that has been missing in the past 10 years, said Jimmie Akesson, the leader of the far-right and anti-EU Sweden Democrats. That debate is already taking center stage in Britain, never the most enthusiastic EU member, where lawmakers this week launched an unsuccessful motion to hold a referendum on leaving the 27-member union. Dozens of Conservative MPs rebelled against Prime Minister David Camerons orders and voted for the motion, which was rejected in a 483111 vote. Nigel Farage, leader of the euroskeptic U.K. Independence Party, claimed that some Conservatives were thinking about defecting to his party, which has no seats in the House of Commons and won just 3 percent of votes in the 2010 election. Im not going to tell you they are on the verge of coming across. All I can tell you is that its being discussed. I do know people in the Conservative Party and Ive spoken to some this morning who are deeply depressed at the moment, The Evening Standard quoted Farage as saying Thursday. A poll published Monday by The Guardian newspaper found that 70 percent of respondents wanted a referendum on UK membership in the EU; 49 percent said they would vote to withdraw, 40 percent said they would vote to stay in and the rest were undecided. ICM Research interviewed a ranBangkok flood defenses hold off peak coastal tides Associated PressBANGKOK Defenses shielding the center of Thailands capital from the nations worst floods in nearly 60 years mostly held at critical peak tides Saturday, as the waters began to recede after killing almost 400 people. But the threat to central Bangkok was not over, the prime minister said, and the citys northern districts remained submerged along with much of the countryside. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra urged citizens to let the crisis run its course as the floodwaters slowly drain to the sea, with Bangkok lying in their path. The floods that have besieged central Thailand for weeks submerged entire towns across the countrys heartland and shuttered hundreds of factories over the last two months. We have the good news that the situation in the central region has improved as runoff water gradually decreased, she said. I thank people and urge them to be more patient in case this weekend is significant because of the high tide. Bangkok residents watched the citys dikes and sandbag barriers warily as the high tide pushing up the Chao Phraya River from the Gulf of Thailand peaked Saturday morning. It had been described as the greatest test of the capitals flood defenses since the northern deluge first approached Bangkok more than three weeks ago. While some water doused streets and shops along the river, the tides fell short of forecast highs and there was no major breach. Higher than usual tides will continue through Monday, but are predicted to be lower than Saturdays. City official Adisak Kantee said the citys concrete barriers are efficiently protecting Bangkok from deluge, though he said smaller, private dikes might yet fail. The situation is so far under control, he said. Yingluck said in her weekly radio address the government was trying to speed the drainage rate, and water in the greater Bangkok area should recede within days. While downtown Bangkok was bone-dry and bustling, areas along the citys outskirts saw flooding spread. Seven of Bangkoks 50 districts all in the northern and western outskirts are heavily inundated. Eight other districts have seen less serious flooding. In the citys west, not far from the flooded district of Bang Phlat, workers filled sandbags and stacked them in pickup trucks for delivery to the front lines, while vendors did booming trade in life vests, plastic boats, plastic foam and anything else that floated. With many roads in the area submerged, traffic was heavy both heading in and out of the city. Thousands of Bangkok residents used a special five-day holiday to leave town, wary at confusing warnings about the flood threat and others concerned about sparse supplies in stores due to weeks of panic buying and flood-related distribution problems. Bangkok Gov. Sukhumbhand Paribatra highlighted another threat: sanitation. He ordered boats to collect uncollected garbage in a flooded district where most places were inaccessible by truck. On Saturday, the Flood Relief Operations Center moved from its base at Don Muang airport after a power transformer malfunctioned. The airport, mainly used for domestic flights, closed Tuesday because of flooding on the runways and surrounding streets. Associated Press Thai residents use an improvised raft as they move to higher ground along a flooded area Saturday in Bangkok, Thailand. The complex network of flood defenses erected to shield Thailands capital from the countrys worst floods in nearly 60 years was put to the test Saturday as coastal high tides hit their peak. Associated PressBEIRUT Syrian troops shelled a restive district and conducted sweeping raids Saturday, killing at least three people one day after 40 were reported to have died in one of the deadliest crackdowns in months in the countrys uprising, activists said. The violence prompted strong criticism from the Arab League, which issued a statement expressing disgust at Fridays killings. An Arab League committee was set to meet Sunday in Qatar with a Syrian delegation over ways to solve the crisis stemming from the sevenmonth uprising against President Bashar Assads regime. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon also appealed for military operations against civilians to stop at once. The Syrian oppositions two main activist groups, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Coordinating Committees, said shells slammed into the Baba Amr district of Homs on Saturday, killing at least three people. Raids and arrests also were reported around the eastern city of Deir el-Zour. The popular revolt against Assads regime has proved remarkably resilient over the past seven months, with protests erupting every week despite the near-certainty the government will respond with bullets and tear gas. The U.N. estimates the regime crackdown on the protests has killed 3,000 people since March. Much of the bloodshed Friday happened after protests had ended and security forces armed with machine guns chased protesters and activists, according to opposition groups monitoring the demonstrations. Authorities disrupted telephone and Internet service, they said. At least 40 people were killed, according to the observatory and the LCC. Shelling in Syria kills 3 after deadly day

Sassard, Williams, Winn, Bertine, Martin, Turner, Driggers, Levins, Willis and Van Ness. A low limestone rock wall surrounds the oldest marked graves, which belong to Mariah and Daniel Edwards. Mariah died in 1862. Her husband, Daniel, died in 1868. Their son, Obadiah, a Confederate soldier, built the wall. Mariah was Roger Carol Dumas great-great-great grandmother. Mrs. Dumas also recalls cemetery clean up days. Earlier this year she told a Chronicle reporter, I can walk to any one of these tombstones and it evokes memories of something. When I was a little girl, we used to go to Red Level often to eat dinner with my grandma or spend the day. Some of my earliest memories are of Red Level, the church, the cemetery and listening to all the stories when I was a little tiny girl I remember having picnics in this area. Wayne Priest, Dumas uncle, goes out to the cemetery almost every day. After a storm he picks up branches and scattered flowers. During funerals, he stays with the grave openers and then coordinates with the funeral home. Then when the monument people come, hes there with them. He said many times he has come to the unlocked cemetery to find people who like to visit old cemeteries looking around at the old gravesites. His aunt and uncle, Annie and Jesse Smith, died in 1918. One died about dark and the other one died the next morning from a flu epidemic, he said. They left a bunch of kids. Daddy raised four of them and Mr. Cason raised one and an aunt had a baby for a while until it passed away. An unmarked grave in the cemetery belongs to a man named Jackson. Back in the 1940s, Priests father and a man named Charlie Hatcher found him down at the river. Hed been dead for about two weeks when they found him. They buried him at midnight. Charlie Hatcher died New Years Day, 1971. He was 84. Priest said the cemetery started out as a community cemetery and through the intermarrying of the pioneer families, it evolved into a family cemetery. Today there are more than 300 people buried there, with room for about 250 more. The cemetery was originally connected to Red Level Baptist Church until around 1960, when they decided they didnt have enough room to take care of all the influx of new people, Priest said. Thats when it became a family cemetery. Every year, either the last Saturday of March or the first Saturday in April, depending on what date Easter falls on, the families meet for an annual clean up day, a cemetery business meeting and dinner on the grounds. They elect 10 trustees, one from each family, and the trustees take care of any business. The cemetery is maintained through donations solicited from the families, for grass cutting etc. Earlier this year, the families learned that Nature Coast Development LLC, purchased the limerock-rich property surrounding the cemetery to mine it, and requested permits to move the setback to 150 feet from the cemetery. The company would remove the existing trees in that area, build a berm and plant trees and shrubs in a 20-foot area around the cemetery, plus erect a 6-foot wooden privacy fence. In June, Citrus County commissioners voted 4-1 to deny the mining plan, which prompted attorney Clark Stillwell, representing property owner Steve Lamb, to ask a circuit court judge to overturn the commissioners decision and send it back for further review. The case is pending in court. MacRae and Mrs. Dumas both said theyre scared for the oldest tombstones and the rock wall if mining were to take place. The rock wall, more than 100 years old, is leaning as it is. Mrs. Dumas said she comes to the cemetery because of its serenity and tranquility. She said it gives her a sense of family history. This is where I came from, she said. Theres not very many of us who can walk into a place and say that. I would like my greatgreat grandchildren to be able to say that.

Back then the community in northeast Citrus County was rural, tucked away, a mix of year-round homeowners and those who vacationed on the weekends. Same as it is now. Grant, who oversees east side patrol for the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, said the types of law enforcement issues seen in Arrowhead are a little different than the more populated areas. For example, a common complaint is about all-terrain vehicles on Stokes Ferry Road and other streets in the community. Four-wheelers like to run up and down that roadway, he said. There isnt much the sheriffs office can do about those complaints, Grant said. He encourages drivers of ATVs to share the road with other vehicles and be courteous to residents. We are limited at how much enforcement we can take, he said. Sheriffs deputies deal with the same issues in the far reaches of Citrus County as they do in more populated areas. Drug cases, burglaries, domestic assaults they occur everywhere. But they do find some challenges or calls for service that are special to the rural areas. Grants brother, Sgt. Ricky Grant, said a common service call in the northwest section of the county is isolated gunfire. That normally means someone believes their neighbors target practice shooting is a little too close for comfort. People shoot guns. They like to target practice, Sgt. Grant said. We get more complaints in these areas than anywhere else. It isnt illegal to discharge a firearm in a safe manner, so Sgt. Grant said deputies normally ask people to make sure they are not firing toward someones house or across the road. Because deputies patrol in zones of the county, response time is no different than to Arrowhead or Citronelle than a more populated area such as Floral City or Homosassa, Capts. Grant and Charlie Simmons said. Sometimes it works out the deputy might be in the general area when a call comes in, Simmons said. But a challenge that deputies responding to far rural calls face is the condition of local roads. Some of those roads are pretty rough, Simmons said. Id say very, very few roads are impassible. Sgt. Grant added: There are a lot more dirt roads in the northern rural areas than in the populated areas. As with other citizens, the sheriffs office encourages residents to be on the lookout in their neighborhoods and call 911 if they see suspicious behavior. Get to know your neighbors, Capt. Grant said. Watch their stuff as they can watch your stuff. Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at (352) 563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com.

and started building, Kelly and her husband split up for a while and she lived in a Teardrop tent trailer with her kids, hauling water from the spring. So did all the other poor folks out there, she said. The spring was the center of Arrowhead. A quiet stranger, an injured Vietnam War veteran, put the roof of her house and refused to take any money. She said thats typical of the people in her community. I loved it back there I still do, she said. At that time there werent a whole lot of people out there. The land was really raw. My husband dug a well with a Volks wagen and a big pipe, backing it up, backing it up. We fished out of the canal for brim we ate a lot of brim, she said. She and her husband bought Hillbillys on State Road 200 six years ago. Kelly used to drive by it, an old house thats zoned for commercial use, and think how pretty it was. She raises horses and knew how to buy feed and tack, but at the time she didnt know anything about selling it. Her stepdaughter, Lori Parker, is her business partner. Parker, too, lives in Arrowhead. In older times, the local feed store was a hang-out place for nearby ranchers and farmers. Its different in 2011, but the women have set out rocking chairs on the front porch and theres usually a fresh pot of coffee inside. Theres probably 20 people who regularly come in and out and sit for an hour at a time, Kelly said. People from Arrowhead, Kelly and Parker included, remember the last few big floods in 1993, 1998 and 2004. That first time was supposedly the year-flood, Kelly said. The last one, we were taking boats to the house. Im 18 inches (off the ground) so we didnt get water inside, but we were without power for a couple of weeks. After that we bought a generator and my husband built a dock, a walkway from the road to the house. Parker recalled the speed of the water from the river. The ground was completely covered in 30 minutes, she said. Nobody out there wanted to leave their homes because of looting, Kelly said. In 2004, the Chronicle reported that some residents armed themselves with guns to protect their property. The one thing both Kelly and Parker regret about Arrowhead is the loss of the spring they call Little Blue. At one time it was donated to the kids of Arrowhead, but word got out that it was beautiful, Parker said. People were coming from Tampa and all over and there was lots of alcohol and underage drinking, and it turned into a dump, Kelly said. It was a shame. It wasnt the people who live here, but outsiders. They tried to govern it, Parker said, but they ended up shutting the gate on it, and then it was sold.

The Chestnuts, married for 45 years, live just this side of the railroad tracks north of Crystal River, in a community so small its hard to tell where it starts and where it ends. They have neighbors but other than a friendly wave or two, most folks tend to keep to themselves. We kept our kids on the property when they were growing up, Hazel Chestnut said. They bought the two-acre property for the taxes owed about $175 in 1971 and moved from Gulf Hammock in The Levy County property they owned flooded when it rained. It was a mess, Don Chestnut said. Hazel knew Citronelle; she played down the street as a child. We played out here as kids, she said. Wed come down here by the railroad tracks. Talk about blackberries! Oh my God! Her sister lives in Inglis. Their two children are grown; one is in Inglis and the other in Pennsylvania. Don owned shrimp boats and fished from Apalachi cola to Yankeetown. We had three boats altogether, he said. It was a good life. They also lived in the Panhandle where both bagged oysters. I shucked oysters for nine years, Hazel Chestnut said. I was a great shucker. Im not bragging but I was. It wasnt always easy. You make a little money, then starve, Don Chestnut said. Wed pay off the credit cards, then make a little more money. Don Chestnut also worked a spell as a welder at the Florida Power plant near Crystal River. Hazel became quite the doll collector; the house is filled with dolls of all shapes, colors and sizes. It never dawned on them to live anywhere but Citronelle, on a quiet street off County Road 495 near the tracks. Nobody bothers us. Its real quiet, Don Chestnut said. That said, theyd like some conveniences such as a pharmacy or grocery store. Crystal River is a 10or 15-minute drive, which was easy at one time but isnt so easy today. Were getting told, Hazel Chestnut said. When you get old, you start to wonder how youre going to get the groceries. Citronelle hasnt grown much, though the Chestnuts say theyve seen houses built on the other side of the railroad tracks. This is an old township, Don Chestnut said. It used to be a pretty good-sized town. Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at (352) 563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com.

A14 S UNDAY, O CTOBER 30, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLES COMMUNITY FOCUS: HAMLETS DeRosa Village started with a vision M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Pete DeRosa was a successful Long Island store owner when he set his business sights on developing land in Florida. It was the 1960s and DeRosa found himself in rural Citrus County, miles of flat farmland north of Crystal River. DeRosa and his wife, Bruna, met Edna Merriken, a local Realtor, and started buying up property. The DeRosas subdivided some of it, put some away for commercial interests and eventually donated some of it for a fire station. While his vision for a bigscale development think Beverly Hills didnt pan out, DeRosa nonetheless is a village community that bears the name of one of Citrus Countys most renowned citizens, who died in August 2004. When he came here there wasnt anything here, said his son, Pete A. DeRosa. It was the middle of nowhere. His parents, who met in Italy, had been living in Islip, N.Y. In the mid-1960s, Sam Kellner was marketing his new Beverly Hills community to New Yorkers, and the DeRosas became interested in finding their own piece. His parents were a partnership. Pete was the visionary; Bruna handled the details. They bought property up and down C.R. 495. They subdivided DeRosa Village and named streets after their Italian friends and relatives from New York who bought lots. That resulted in street names such as Basilico, Previti and Milano. The village comprises 800 acres. That includes about 400 small lots 100-by-90 foot and 70 one-acre lots. DeRosa built the roads in the subdivision. He built DeRosa Plaza so folks would have a place to shop. He donated land for the DeRosa Fire Station which, by January, should be staffed with full-time career firefighters. The development, though, didnt take off as DeRosa thought it would. Some people would come down here, look around and say, theres nobody here, Pete DeRosa said. When people think of Florida, they envision palm trees and beaches. It was raw open land, pasture land. Many people bought lots for speculation. Others, though, moved to DeRosa because of the contrast from a busy life in New York. They came for the peacefulness, DeRosa said. They didnt want the hustle and bustle. DeRosas parents would later be the driving forces in getting state approval for what is now Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center. DeRosa also was founder of the Fallen Heroes Memorial in Bicentennial Park. He was so involved in the community, DeRosa said. He was the one out front. My mother liked to stay in the background. Pete DeRosa said his father never regretted trying his hand in development. He saw the vision of developing a part of Florida, he said. We had such growth potential and they wanted to buy their piece of Florida. Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at (352) 563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com. MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Pete A. DeRosa stands at DeRosa Village, a community his father developed decades ago. Holders produce market open daily at crossroads DARLENE MANN /Chronicle Snows Produce and General Store of Holder is open daily at the intersection of U.S. 41 and County Road 491. D ARLENE M ANN Staff WriterHOLDER Holder and produce market are synonymous to many people in Citrus County. The community may be small, but people from near and far have been coming to Holder for fresh produce, and now Amish goods, for more than 30 years. It all started with a tent and table at the intersection of County Road 491 and U. S. 41 where Charlie Oliver set up his produce stand. Charlie loved produce and he and his stand became a landmark of the community. The stand succeeded because besides quality produce, Charlie, according to his friends, dispensed kind words to those who stopped and his regulars became friends. When Charlie died in 2008, his friends and customers hoped the stand would keep going as a reminder of a man who loved what he did and was a friend to everyone. According to Kent Snow, who with his wife, Georgia, had the decorating business next door, said one of Charlies former employees suggested they continue the stand and she would help run it. Although the former employee later lost her battle with cancer, Kent and Georgia Snow have persevered for three pumpkin seasons, said Kent. They recently blended and expanded the produce market with their decorating business. The market is now called Snows Produce and General Store of Holder. Not only have the Snows expanded the produce market, their products include a line of Amish bakery itemspies, Danish and breads, jams and jellies, and soups. When it comes to the popular Amish treats, Kent says, We encourage special orders if theres a pie you really want, since they go fast. They order about 100 pies a week from Sarasotas Dutch Heritage Restaurant, which specializes in traditional Amish cooking/baking. Most recently, they have added a line of Yankee candles. The indoor part of the market is very inviting and homey. Kent Snow laughs, saying they were trying for a Carolina feel. Many people tell him it reminds them of Pennsylvania or Ohio in other words, wherever home is. Kent and Georgia have continued the friendly atmosphere initiated by Charlie and are always looking for ways to please those who visit the market. Kent remarked that he really enjoys watching the children pick out their pumpkins this time of year, and Christmas trees will be here before you know it.

DREAM VACATIONS Photo Contest Veterans Notes begin on Page A16 of todays Chronicle S USANNE M. S CHAFER Associated Press FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. M ilitary museums allow visitors to experience the rough and tumble jerk of a parachute jump, the barked orders of an Army drill sergeant or the segregated training endured by the first African-Americans to enter the Marine Corps. Whether you are a hardened military veteran or one whos never worn a uniform, several military museums in the Carolinas offer extensive lessons in military service as the Nov. 11 Veterans Day draws near. In Fayetteville, N.C., the soaring Airborne and Special Operations Museum attracts between 120,000 to 175,000 visitors every year and tells the story of how Americas military developed the strategy of dropping fully-armed soldiers into battle from the skies. A 15-foot sculpture of the paratrooper dubbed Iron Mike stands guard at its glass-and-girder front entry, which evokes both the 250-foot jump towers that paratroopers use to train and the wingspan of the C-47 aircraft that dropped soldiers onto battlefields in World War II. Situated just minutes off Interstate 95 in downtown Fayetteville, N.C., the museum is holding a weeklong celebration in advance of Veterans Day, says Paul Galloway, executive director of the foundation that supported construction of the $25 million building. Well be hopping and popping. We do a salute to veterans every year, Galloway said. A week of films about the Army and paratroopers will be held the week prior to the holiday, as well as other events to honor military men and women, Galloway said. As soon as you enter the museum, you spot a World War IIera paratrooper in combat gear floating out of the sky under a yellow 28-foot-wide parachute. Behind him, another model drops from the heavens, a modern Army Ranger buoyed by a light green, honeycombed parachute used by U.S. Special Forces. A wild ride can be had in the museums 24-seat platform motion simulator, recreating the bumps and jumps of parachute drops and rides in military vehicles. To highlight some of the major events of wartime paratroopers, visitors first stroll through a recreated village in Normandy. Recordings from the June 1944 Allied invasion to liberate France from Nazi Germany put visitors in the heat of the battle, with rockets and bullets screeching by. Overhead, a C-47 Skytrain aircraft hovers with a U.S. Army paratrooper poised to jump out an open door. Walkways are papered with still photos, videos and murals that show the history behind U.S. forces that evolved into the famed Special Operations units, designated to take on unconventional warfare and special missions in foreign lands. Displays from the war in the Pacific, the Korean War and Cold War are shown. In one display, soldiers jump from a UH-1 Huey helicopter into a jungle battle raging in Vietnam. Other displays detail the history of U.S. involvement in the Dominican Republic, Panama and Grenada. Americas conflicts in the Middle East are recalled with models of camouflaged soldiers crouching in desert hideouts in Iraq. Others depict U.S. Special Operations forces meeting for tea with Afghan villagers or medical centers where military medics tend to local children. The latest addition to the Armys military museums is the Armys Basic Training Combat Museum located on Fort Jackson, in Columbia, S.C., which reopened in July after a two-year renovation. More than 60,000 male and female soldiers graduate every year from basic training at Fort Jackson, which is the Armys largest training site. The museum offers guests and family members a taste of their grueling 10 weeks of indoctrination and combat training. The museum boasts a number of high-speed exhibits that zoom in directly on how civilians are turned into soldiers, interwoven with Fort Jacksons past, said the two-star general in charge of the post, Maj. Gen. James Milano. Visitors may be startled by drill sergeants who appear in holographic images bellowing commands, allowing them to feel as if he or she has enlisted in the Army and is standing there in their Army Combat Uniform, Milano says. Check out a fully loaded duffel bag, or try to lift and shoot an Army rifle. Listen as soldiers march by and learn some of the drill sergeants cadence calls that keep soldiers sharp and in step. The museum gives visitors a sense of how rough training once was with displays of World War I-era barracks, complete with wood-burning, potbellied stoves, metal beds and modest rations. I learned how theyd done basic training in the past, said Pvt. Christopher Thorngate, 26, visiting the museum with his grandparents Dale, 76, and Janet, 70, of Salem, W.Va., a day before his own graduation from basic training. They worked the simulations in very well, so its not just history and you dont get bored. Grandfather Thorngate, who retired from the Air Force after 26 years, said he was pleased to learn how presentThe U.S. Army Basic Combat Training Museum at Fort Jackson, S.C., offers visitors insight into how civilians are transformed into military men and women.

Shonk Chapter 70 of Inverness announces the design of the 2011 Citrus County Veterans Appreciation Commemorative Pin. In keeping with this years theme A Patriotic Salute to Americas Military Aviators the pin displays the outline of Citrus County superimposed with the first, and one of the newest aircraft, with a sky blue background. On Jan. 18, 1911, Eugene Ely flying a Curtiss biplane landed on and took off from a specially built platform on the deck of the USS Pennsylvania in San Diego harbor. A month later, a Curtiss hydroaeroplane fitted with floats was loaded on and off the USS Pennsylvania using a crane. These events led up to the U.S. Navy purchasing its first aircraft on May 8, 1911. The pins are available for $3 each and may be obtained by calling the chapter at (352) 3443464 or John Seaman at (352) 860-0123. Other locations will be announced later.

day training made use of combat weapons and tactics. Whether its the Air Force or Army, its good to see that they keep instilling military values, the discipline that is needed, he said. While most Marines recall their basic training taking place either at Parris Island, S.C., or Camp Pendleton, Calif., there is a third site few know about: the Montford Point Marine Museum, located near Camp Lejeune, N.C., at Camp Gilbert H. Johnson. We are the Marine Corps basic training site youve never heard of, jokes Finney Greggs, a retired Marine and director of the small museum located in one of the original white wooden, single story barracks buildings where African-Americans were segregated from white Marines as they trained from 1942 to 1949. The museum holds photos, letters, uniforms and other mementos from blacks who endured tough training to earn the eagle, globe and anchor Corps insignia and disprove the notion they werent worthy because of the color of their skin. African-Americans gained entry to the Marines after President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an executive order forcing the commandant to allow them to train. In 1948, President Harry S Truman signed an executive order that desegregated the military services, and all Marines went to boot camp at either Parris Island or Camp Pendleton. Greggs says the museum is seeking material for displays and is looking for information about any veterans who may have trained at Montford Point and saw duty in World War II. Organizers are also looking ahead to building a second phase dealing with the history of these Marines in the Korean War and Vietnam. A lot of families dont even know where their veteran may have served. We tell them, Just ask and find out! Maybe some of the older members of your church community were part of World War II and trained at Montford Point, said Greggs wife, Louise, who helps manage the site.

Members of the Sturgeon Base of the United States Submarine Veterans will present this years Massing of the Colors ceremony at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 13, at Cornerstone Baptist Church, Highland Avenue, Inverness.

For more information, call Billy Wein at (352) 726-5926 or Jack Townsend at (352) 6375376. The Massing of the Colors is a patriotic ceremony and tribute to the dead of all wars. Its purpose is to rededicate faith in the colors of the United States and to support those colors, as well as the servicemen and women those colors represent. Before the 20th century, military colors were carried covered except for ceremonies or when the enemy was in sight. A units colors provided battlefield recognition to friend and foe. The flags always represented the soul and reputation of a unit. Each unit had two flags: their national colors and a unit flag. To ensure that the men knew the flag of their own unit, both flags were frequently paraded before them during reviews and other ceremonies. From this practice developed modern color guards.

Dermatologists are medical doctors who have extensive training and experience, as well as a passion for keeping skin, hair, and nails healthy and vibrant, throughout all phases of life. A dermatologists medical education includes training to treat medical/health and cosmetic concerns. At Suncoast Dermatology, our four board certified physicians not only treat a long list of skin conditions, including the surgical removal of potentially deadly skin cancers; but also use many techniques to reverse the signs of aging and improve the skins appearance. Suncoast Dermatology and Skin Surgery Center offers the latest treatment modalities in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer. Since 1989, the physicians of Suncoast Dermatology have continued to evolve their practice to ensure their patients receive the best options available to diagnose and treat your skin. Skin cancers effect 2 million people annually. They are the one type of cancer that will increase in frequency as people age and they receive more exposure to the environment. The most frequent types of skin cancer are basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, and melanomas. Any skin cancer needs to be taken seriously and treated promptly; but of these three types, melanomas can be deadly if not treated early. Anyone can get melanoma. Its important to establish a regular routine for self examination that encompasses a head to toe assessment. This exam starts with your scalp and goes to the bottom of your feet. Use a hand held mirror where necessary, and take notes. A detailed list of the existing moles and skin lesions will help you decide if there is a change in size or shape that needs to be seen by the doctors at Suncoast Dermatology. This is a good habit to develop to find melanoma early, when it is nearly 100% curable. When checking your skin, you should look for the ABCDEs of melanoma: Asymmetry. Do both halves look the same? Border. Is there an irregular, scalloped, or poorly defined border? Color. Is the color varied from one area to another, from tan to brown to black, or even shades of white, red or blue? Diameter. Melanomas are usually larger than a pencil eraser (6mm) when diagnosed, but can be smaller. Evolving. A mole or skin lesion that looks different from the rest or is changing size, shape or color. If you see a mole or new spot on your skin that has any of the ABCDEs, immediately make an appointment to see the doctors at Suncoast Dermatology. In the early stages, melanoma may not cause any symptoms, but sometimes melanomas will itch, bleed, or be painful. Many melanomas have these signs and symptoms, but not all melanomas will display them. A common misconception people have is that their mole or skin lesion is normal and nothing to worry about. Be proactive with your health and watch out for the warning signs. In addition to the diagnosis and treatment of medical skin conditions, Suncoast Dermatology offers an extensive array of Skin Renewal and Age Management options.

Sunday PUZZLER Todays MOVIES Is furniture fight going to be worth it? D ear Annie: My only sibling passed away six years ago. He left three adult children and a wife who walked out on him a month before he died. The two eldest children are doing great. The problem is the youngest. Oliviais an adroit liar and has stolen from most of the family members. Three years ago, she said she wanted a fresh startand asked if she could stay with us until she got on her feet. At this time, my elderly mother was living with us, and my wife was recovering from bypass surgery. I was inclined to say no, but Olivia cried to my mother, who insisted we take her in. We gave up our bedroom, and my wife and I took separate couches. While here, Olivia trashed our bedroom and my mothers car. I also discovered that Olivia had been stealing money out of my mothers wallet. Mom passed away four months later, and Olivia moved into her own place. I loaned her some furniture, including my mothers bedroom set. Heres where the problem begins. Olivia was evicted for non-payment of rent. No one knew about it for months. When I called the landlord to ask what happened to the furniture, he said it was put into storage for 45 days and then into a dumpster. Olivia is 30 now. She recently married, and I wasnt invited to the wedding. I want to take her to small claims court for the value of the furniture we loaned her. This decision has caused grief throughout the family, but I feel its time Olivia is held responsible for her actions. Should I do it? Disowned Uncle Dear Uncle: First, think it through. Has Olivia matured now that she is older and married? If so, you might do better to approach her directly and ask her to work out a payment plan for the missing furniture. This holds her responsible with less animosity and allows her to acknowledge her misdeeds without creating the confrontation that a courtroom requires. But if she is still the disturbed, conniving girl you remember, a court of law may be the only way to exact payment. You will, however, be damaging your relationship with her siblings, and there is no guarantee that Olivia will learn any lessons. Only you can decide whether your mothers furniture is worth it. Dear Annie: Neglectedsaid her husband isnt interested in sex. May I suggest another reason besides an affair or a medical problem? I have been married to Joe for 10 years. During our courtship, he was the most affectionate and loving person. Immediately after our marriage, he announced that he had no desire and refused to discuss it. I tortured myself wondering what I did wrong and then discovered that the real problem was pornography. I no longer trust or respect him. Any advice? Miserable Dear Miserable: Get counseling for yourself, if Joe wont go with you. If he refuses to address the situation, you have some difficult choices to make. You also can check out COSA at cosa-recovery.org. It is a support group for those whose lives have been affected by someone elses compulsive sexual behavior.

ANNIES MAILBOX Reading this will make you thin L ots of people think subliminal advertising means that advertisers get us to buy their products by secretly inserting in their TV ads the words sex or buy this words that fly by so fast that viewers arent even aware theyve seen them. It works because, as we all know, if you see the words buy this flash by so fast that you dont even know youve seen them, theres absolutely nothing you can do to prevent yourself from hopping in the car and purchasing that product, even if you dont want it or need it. If subliminal advertising really worked that way, wed all be saying things like, Gee, honey, why did you buy a 50-pound sack of dog food when we have a cat? or, Why did I just buy a riding mower when we live in a high-rise? That doesnt mean there isnt subliminal advertising. It just means it doesnt work the way most people think it does, like some kind of evil hypnotism. Heres how it really works. You see an ad for a company that delivers pizza. The ad talks about how good the pizza tastes, how inexpensive it is, how happy you and your family will be that you didnt have to cook dinner time you can now spend watching more TV and even more pizza commercials. The subliminal part is that no one in the commercial who is eating fattening, cheesy pizza with garlic-butter bread chasers and a free bottle of sugary soda is an ounce overweight. Its a miracle! The subliminal message is that you can eat this highcalorie food all day long and look like the models and actors in the ad. If you asked the models if they ever eat pizza, they would probably all say never or once a year or I run a marathon once a week. After all, unlike you and me, they have to stay thin and good-looking to be in commercials. Beer commercials always show young, attractive, sober people having fun and hooking up. No one in a beer commercial burps or has a beer belly, glazed eyes or missing teeth. The ads never show some puffy-faced sad sack throwing up in the mens room or going home alone, drunk and less happy than he was before he downed his first six-pack of the day. The subliminal message in these commercials is that if you drink beer, youll have fun and be good-looking and score with all the babes. Advertisers hardly need to flash the word sex in the middle of the commercial, when thats what the whole commercial is about to begin with. Theres more sexual innuendo in the average beer commercial than there is in an ad for Viagra. Some say people drink to forget. If so, its to forget how much theyve already had to drink today. Ask any bartender how many of his customers drink because they are so gosh darn happy and well adjusted. Look at the people in the commercials for fast-food restaurants on TV. Again, they are all model-thin and have the healthy glow you get from eating a lot of green vegetables, fruits and salads and from exercising regularly. Then look around the real fast-food restaurant the next time you visit one. Notice anything different? Who are you going to believe? Your own eyes or the TV commercial?

Associated PressDENVER Tim Tebow inspired a phenomenon when he dropped to a knee and began praying as his teammates wildly celebrated around him after an improbable overtime victory in Miami last weekend. That was simply Tebow Tebowing, a phrase coined by a fan sitting in a bar in New York watching the popular yet polarizing quarterback rally the Denver Broncos. Jared Kleinstein was mesmerized by Tebows peaceful demeanor kneeling on the turf amid all the chaos that ensued. He launched a website in which fans could submit photos of themselves Tebowing, which means getting down on a knee and praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different. The trend is picking up steam. Kleinstein has received quite a collection of photos. There are fans striking the Tebow prayer pose next to statues, in bowling alleys, on boats and while waiting in line for tacos. There are kids getting ready for ballet performing the pose, an airline pilot just before takeoff and a construction worker on a rooftop. Recently, Kleinstein even received a photo of a solider in Afghanistan emulating Tebows pose. Its addictive to be a Tebow fan, said Kleinstein, who grew up in Denver before moving to New York. Never did Kleinstein envision this venture taking off so quickly. Kleinstein started the website earlier this Recreation/ B2 Prep football/ B3 Scoreboard/B4 Lottery, TV/B4 College football/ B5 NFL/ B5 Entertainment/ B6 Section B SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2011 Noles blank Pack Manuel, defense gets FSU win over N.C. State Associated PressTALLAHASSEE EJ Manuel threw for 321 yards and two touchdowns Saturday to lead Florida State to a 34-0 win over North Carolina State. Florida State (5-3, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 24-0 at halftime and intercepted N.C. State quarterback Mike Glennon twice en route to its first shutout of the season.. Manuel completed 25 of 34 passes and connected on scoring plays of 20 yards to Kenny Shaw and 26 yards to Greg Dent. Lonnie Pryor and Devonta Freeman scored on short runs and Dustin Hopkins chipped in with two field goals for the Seminoles, who have bounced back from an early-season, three-game losing streak with three straight wins. N.C. State (4-4, 1-3) managed only 166 yards on offense, while suffering its first shutout since the 2008 season opener. The Seminoles, who rolled up 444 yards and 23 first downs in the game, dominated from the opening kickoff. Florida States offense produced 249 yards before halftime while its defense limited NC State to 106 yards as quarterback Mike Glennon managed only 71 Associated PressMARTINSVILLE, Va. Roush Fenway Racing teammates Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth couldnt have asked for a better scenario than rain washing out qualifying for Sundays race at Martinsville Speedway. Edwards had never qualified better than seventh on the 0.526-mile oval, and Kenseth had never qualified better than 14th before weather handed them the front row spots Saturday. Qualifying, I think, is one of the most important parts of this race and its no secret thats been a tough thing for me and Matt as well, so I think its best-case for us that we get to start on the front row, and even better is the pit stall selection, Edwards said. I think thats gonna last all day no matter how much we have to work on the car. With only four races left in the season, and a lead of just 14 points over Kenseth, 18 over Brad Keselowski and 19 over Tony Stewart, Edwards will take all the help he can get. He has four top-10 finishes in his last seven starts at the oldest track in the series, while Wet race track Associated Press NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Jeff Gordon, right, talks with media relations member Jon Edwards during a rain delay for practice at the Martinsville Speedway. NBA talks need economic move to end the lockout Associated PressNEW YORK Anyone who has been to a car dealership, or bought a home, understands how negotiating works. One side offers a number, the other counters, and they meet somewhere in the middle and make a deal. Thats not the way its working in the NBAs labor standoff even with potentially $2 billion at stake for each side. Owners and players keep insisting they are ready and willing to make the necessary financial step for an agreement. Yet talks have broken down each of the last two weeks with little movement and the same type of answer: Were here, theyre there, and thats that. That wont get players back on the court or fans in the seats. And with both sides so entrenched, it might be a question of when, not if, another round of cancellations will be necessary. I dont know, Commissioner David Stern said Friday when asked about the next deadline. We just had a difficult day. Well go back, well go to the office Monday and see what to do about this big mess. They could start with a phone call to the players assoSee NBA / Page B4 See NASCAR / Page B4 Associated Press Florida State quarterback E.J. Manuel (3) throws a pass against N.C. State at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee on Saturday. Associated PressJACKSONVILLE Georgia coach Mark Richt may have saved his job with two gutsy, fourth-down calls. Aaron Murray threw two touchdown passes on fourth down, and the 22nd-ranked Bulldogs overcame several mistakes to beat Southeastern Conference rival Florida 24-20 Saturday and keep pace with South Carolina in the Eastern Division. It was Georgias fourth victory in the last 22 games against Florida and could be a big one for Richt. He had been under pressure since losing his first two games this season. Now, the Bulldogs (6-2, 5-1 SEC) have won six straight. The Gators have lost four in a row for the first time since 1988, a streak that certainly will taint coach Will Muschamps first season in Gainesville. The latest loss came against Muschamps alma mater and eliminated Florida (4-4, 2-4) in the division race. Georgia players and coaches celebrated in the end zone after the win, nearly the same spot that caused such a stir four years ago. Richts son jumped into arms and gave dad a big, ol hug. This one was special, and everyone knew it. Like so many times before in this series, Georgia found ways to try to give the game away. The Bulldogs allowed a touchdown on a fourth-and-19 play in the first quarter, gave up a 99-yard kickoff return, missed two field goals and had a ball bounce off a running backs helmet for an interception. The Gators had their chances, too. John Brantley, playing for the first time since badly spraining his right ankle four weeks ago, had some success early. He threw for 226 yards in the first half but was mediocre at best after the break. The Gators managed 32 yards in the second half, another paltry performance that showed how far the team has fallen since winning the 2008 national championship. Nonetheless, Florida led 17-3 before two turnovers gave Georgia short fields. And Richt, quite possibly with his job on the line, didnt want to squander the opportunities. Chris Rainey fumbled at the end of a 17-yard run, giving the Bulldogs great field position. They didnt do much with the ball, but Richt went for it on fourth-and-5 at the Florida 20. Instead of simply trying to move the chains, Murray found Michael Bennett for a touchdown just before halftime. Bennett made a leaping catch over Jaylen Watkins. The Gators gave the ball away again early in the third. Frankie Hammond fumbled deep in Florida territory. The Bulldogs called three consecutive runs, making it look like they were content to settle for a field goal. Not Richt. He kept his offense on the field for a fourth-and-6 play at the 14. Murray threw a jump ball to the corner, and Tavarres King came down with it over Marcus Roberson. The 14-yard score tied at the game at 17. Florida followed with a 63yard kickoff return, which led to a field goal and a 20-17 lead. It was short-lived. Georgia, which had scored first in every game this season, took its first lead on Richard Samuels 4-yard run early in the fourth quarter. The defense did the rest, pressuring Brantley, minimizing speedsters Rainey and Jeff Demps. Jarvis Jones led the way with four sacks. Brantley completed 12 of 34 passes for 245 yards, with a touchdown. He was sacked six times. Rainey ran five times for 26 yards. Demps had a 72-yard reception on the first play from scrimmage but was a non-factor the rest of the way. Murray was 15 of 34 passing for 169 yards, with an interception. He was sacked three times but also ran for 42 yards. Brantley was sacked five times in the first half, only part of Floridas problems. The Gators missed a field goal, were penalized 14 times and lost two fumbles.

J.M. SORACCHI For the ChronicleCANDLER Citrus defense had held up pretty well throughout the Hurricanes District 6A-5 football clash with host Lake Weir. Still, the teenagers from Inverness had to make one more stop to protect a onescore lead late in the fourth quarter to come out on top. The Hurricanes were able to weather a last shot from Lake Weir, also named the Hurricanes, when quarterback Jerome Johnson took the shotgun snap, then a step forward before slipping to the turf untouched behind the line of scrimmage on 4th and 2. Lake Weir had turned the ball over on downs with 2:37 left in the game and Citrus ran out the clock for a 14-6 victory on Friday night at Lake Weir. Citrus is now 4-4 overall and 2-1 in district while Lake Weir fell to 2-6 and 1-3. Last year, we wouldnt have been able to do this, said Citrus junior Darius Chapes of holding the scant lead. Weve come a long way in this program and Ive really proud of our team. Rayburn Greene, Citrus second-year head coach, felt like hes seen a transformation in the last two weeks: the previous game was a 25-24 victory over The Villages where Citrus had to hold its opponent scoreless in the fourth quarter as well. Im proud of the resolve we showed, Greene said. Last year, we would have folded down the stretch and Im proud of the way theyve learned that it doesnt have to be that way. They came through when it counted. Still, the Hurricanes from Inverness needed at least one first down to run out the clock without giving the ball back to Lake Weir. A five-yard quarterback sneak by Cody Bogart on 3rd and 4 gave Citrus exactly what it needed, then a 12-yard run on the very next play by Chapes really put the game away for good. Chapes led the Hurricanes defense from his middle linebacker spot and also did the heavy lifting in the running game; his 20 carries for 123 yards were both game-highs. Chapes also had the Citrus second touchdown on a 14-yard burst off-tackle after Lake Weir was called for a drive-extending pass interference call on 4th and 25 just two plays earlier. The drive was even more significant because it opened the second half by taking over eight minutes off the clock and running 15 plays. Lake Weir finally got the ball with 3:48 left in the third quarter but two plays later, a bad snap was recovered by Chapes and Citrus held the ball into the fourth quarter. The key for Citrus was a stout defensive effort that yielded just 86 yards of total offense, recovered two Lake Weir fumbles and held wide receiver Karando Douglas (who torched Lecanto the previous week for four touchdowns) out of the end zone. We knew coming in we were going to have to take care of (Douglas), Greene said. We knew they were going to try to exploit their speed and move him around. Brandon Roberts also recovered a fumble for Citrus while cornerbacks Paris Wilcox and Kyle Tobin employed effective press coverage on Lake Weirs receivers to hold the home Hurricanes to just 47 yards passing. Theyve got a lot of team speed, Chapes said, but I thought we did a good job containing. Lake Weir actually struck first when quarterback Evans Moreau hit receiver Larry Shealey for a 27-yard touchdown pass early in the second quarter. After a missed extra point, the home Hurricanes led 6-0. Citrus responded on the very next drive by moving the ball from its own 41 to the Lake Weir 24 after three runs and a personal foul on the defense. On the sixth play of the drive, Citrus running back Kyle Presnick (who had nine carries for 85 yards) took a pitch, followed his lead blockers down the right sideline and sprinted around the end for a 19-yard scoring burst. Connor Killeens extra point gave Citrus a 7-6 lead it would never relinquish. Citrus would have more chances on offense, especially in the second half, but two lost fumbles and untimely penalties conspired to keep more points off the board. J EFF B RYAN Riverland News DUNNELLON Crystal River had its chances, but Dunnellon made sure the Pirates never capitalized on them Friday night at Ned Love Field. Despite committing three turnovers, including one inside the Pirates 5-yard line, and turning the ball over on downs two additional times inside the red zone, the Tigers offense did just enough to keep their playoff hopes alive for one more week with a 24-14 victory against Crystal River. We left a lot of points out on the field, said Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley, whose team improved to 5-3 overall and 2-1 in District 5A-5. Three times we get inside the 20 and we just stall, and then were close to punching one in and we fumble. Dunnellons defense was the story, as the Tigers didnt just stymie the Pirates rushing attack: it stopped it in its tracks. A week after Crystal River running back Napolean Hutcherson rushed for 152 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries in an overtime loss to Gainesville Eastside, the senior standout gained 4 yards on seven carries, all in the first half. Crystal Rivers quarterback Joe LaFleur, who had 134 yards of total offense a week ago, had just 21 yards against the Tigers defense, which sacked him five times in the second half. The junior signal caller left in the fourth quarter after he was sacked by Dunnellons Dezmond Crawford. Overall the Pirates gained 142 yards of offense, more than half of it with Crystal River trailing 24-7 in the fourth quarter. They had a great defensive game plan for us, said Crystal River coach Greg Fowler, whose team dropped to 3-5 overall and 04 in district competition. We didnt have any answers for them. They gave us the most problems of any defense this year. They stopped our running game and it killed us, and they had a great blitz package. Fresh off a 517 shelling of Belleview a week ago, the Tigers offense seemed to pick up right where they left off on their opening drive. Dunnellon marched 59 yards in 10 plays, chewing up more than four minutes of time as senior running back Malcom Moss capped the drive with a 3-yard touchdown run. He finished with a season-high 133 yards rushing on 23 carries. The Tigers defense, despite bending on Crystal Rivers opening drive, thwarted the Pirates on a fourth-and-1 from the 14yard line, as Dunnellons offense went back to work. The Tigers moved the ball into the red zone in eight plays and lined up for a 30yard field attempt when Dunnellon faked it and attempted to gain a first down or punch it into the end zone. From there, neither team found the end zone for the better portion of the second quarter as the Pirates were forced to punt twice while Dunnellon turned the ball over on downs inside the red zone and fumbled once. The Tigers forced Crystal River into its third punt of the first half with 2:19 remaining in the second quarter. From the Pirates sidelines, the coaching staff let it be known it wanted its defense to come up with a big play, and it did just that, forcing a fumble and recovering it at the 14-yard line. Three plays later, LaFleur found tight end Tyler Burns zipping through the seam of the Tigers defense for a 15-yard touchdown reception and knotting the game at 7-all and appearing in good shape knowing it would receive the ball to start the second half. But thats when the Tigers landed a one-two combo the Pirates never recovered from. Buoyed by a short kick off and a return to the Crystal River 43-yard line, Beasley told his offense to go get em baby. Five plays later, Connor Wentz hauled in an 8-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Jordon Boley, as the point after was good, giving the Tigers a 147 lead with 33.7 seconds remaining in the opening half. With solid field position at the Dunnellon 40-yard line, the Pirates attempted to go to the air to and two plays into Crystal Rivers sixth offensive possession of the half, the Tigers made them pay as linebacker Jeremy Dominey dropped into zone coverage, stepping right in front of Hutcherson and snagging LaFleurs pass and racing 33 yards for a touchdown with 16.4 seconds remaining. The point after was successful, giving Dunnellon a 21-7 lead. I think that changed the momentum of the whole game, Beasley said of scoring twice in the final minute. Jeremy made a great play; he did last year for us. Dunnellons Connor Wentz scored on an 8-yard touchdown pass and Jeremy Dominey had a 33-yard interception return for a score all in the final minute of the first half to break open a 7all game, taking a 21-7 lead into the second half. Dunnellon plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday at North Marion. The Tigers must win to force a three-way tie for first place in the district. Crystal River plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday against Belleview at Earl Bramlett Stadium. They might make the playoffs, well see how it goes for them this weekend, Fowler said.

Coming into the game, the Warriors had six wins while Bell had none on the 2011 campaign. Bell (1-7, 0-3), however, used 389rushing yards as a team to rack up 41 first-half points. The combination of Jeremy Zimmerman and Austin Richey were the two-headed monster for Bell against the Warriors defense. Zimmerman and Richey combined for 353 yards rushing and four touchdowns on the night. John Iwaniec, who ran hard and showed heart, led the Warriors with 27 carries for 218 yards. The Wing-T is hard to defend, and it will be a lesson learned, Warriors head coach Paul Roher said. Austin Richey scored on a 35-yard touchdown run to open the scoring in a wild first quarter 1:53 into the game to put Bell up 7-0. The Warriors (6-2,3-0) answered right back when Josh Downey connected on a 35-yard touchdown pass to Cody Bolduc to tie it at 7-7 with 8:40 left in the first quarter. The Bulldogs would take a 14-7 lead when Jeremy Zimmerman scored on a 6-yard touchdown run with 4:07 remaining in the first. The Warriors would again answer with a Josh Downey 37-yard touchdown run to culminate an 8play, 65-yard drive with 1:45 remaining in the first to knot the score. But on the ensuing kickoff Bells James Oslager returned it 95 yards for a touchdown to put the Bulldogs ahead 21-14 with 1:28 left in the first. In the second quarter, Bell increased the lead to 28-14 on a reverse play that James Oslager ran in from 16-yards out with 8:55 remaining in the half. Following a failed onside kick for Bell, Seven Rivers marched 51 yards, capped by a 1-yard touchdown pass from Josh Downey to Trey Gaskin, bringing the Warriors to within eight points of the lead. The extra point was missed to leave the Bell advantage at 28-20. On the ensuing drive, the Bulldogs scored again when Jeremy Zimmerman capped a 7-play, 54-yard drive with a 1yard touchdown run with 2:13 remaining in the half. The extra point failed to leave the score 34-20. Following another failed onside kick by the Bulldogs and with the Warriors in Bell territory, Josh Downeys pass was intercepted by Jeremy Zimmerman and returned 75 yards to set up the Bulldogs at the Warrior 4-yard line. Austin Richey would take it in for the touchdown on the following play to put Bell up 41-20 at the half. In the second half a Warriors fumble was recovered by the Bulldogs at their own 45yard line. They would turn it into points when Bruce Thomas found James Oslager in the end-zone for a 5-yard touchdown pass, the extra point failed, but Bell was in control at 47-20. With 3:41 left in the third quarter, Trey Gaskin intercepted Bruce Thomas and returned it 49 yards for a touchdown. Iwaniec ran in for the conversion to cut the lead to 47-28. The Bulldogs would answer with an interception return for a touchdown of their own when James Oslager intercepted Josh Downey and ran it back 32 yards for the score. He added the extra point as well, which capped the scoring for the night. Afterwards, Paul Roher said, It was a good lesson for our team, it will help us going into the playoffs, and well learn from this loss. The Sunshine State Athletic Conference North Division Champion Warriors will prepare for the playoffs that begin on (November 11).

Kenseth has seven top 10s in 23 starts. Neither has won here, while some of the other contenders have. Stewart has won twice, but not since 2006, and fivetime defending series champion Jimmie Johnson, who is 50 points off the lead, has been to Victory Lane six times, last in 2009. Of course, apart from being able to select the pit stall at the front of pit road, giving him unimpeded access back onto the track, the other contenders will start up front, too. It almost takes qualifying out of the equation, Edwards said. The racing will be another matter entirely, and when the teams finally got onto the track Saturday for their only practice session before the race, Johnson was third fastest, while Kenseth was 24th and Edwards 29th. On runs of 10 consecutive laps, Johnsons speed of 95.322 mph was well faster than Kenseth (29th, 93.953 mph) and Edwards (30th, 93,851 mph). Besides speed, its also nearly impossible to get through 500 laps around the paper clip-shaped oval without sustaining some damage to your car, and with a poor track record, Edwards team will try to build off the setup Kenseth used for his sixth-place run here in the spring. What well probably do is put whatever (setup) Matt had on it the last race and hope for the best, said Edwards, who finished 18th in the spring race. In a perfect world, you would want something ... that you could adjust on more because you dont have as much practice and you maybe dont have as much knowledge built up as to what exactly the setup is going to do. For Edwards, that uncertainty is all part of the dread of coming to Martinsville. For the last few races, Ive come to it dreading it a little bit, but now I come to it just realizing, Hey, Ive got my work cut out for me. I have to perform well. I have to go out here and give everything Ive got, and, to me, to come out of here with a top 10 would be a success, he said, adding that boosting his lead from 5 to 14 points last weekend helped. Edwards finished only 11th at Talladega, but Kevin Harvick dropped from second to fifth after finishing 32nd, and Johnson finished 26th, falling 15 more points off the pace. If we would have come in here tied with like (Kevin Harvick) or Jimmie (Johnson) or somebody like that, Id be really nervous because Id say they had an advantage. Id say they could do more damage to us in that situation, but having a little bit of a cushion based on our good fortune last week, I just look at it as a challenge, Edwards said. Edwards position, Johnson said, can be harder than the one everyone else faces. When youre protecting something, youre almost in the way of thinking that glass is half full and Ive got to be careful. In qualifying, Id better make sure I make a perfect lap. If it doesnt turn out well, OK, then now Im in traffic and there could be a crash. You start thinking down a negative line of thought, the only driver to win five straight titles said. For me, chasing, there was far less negative thoughts in my mind; it was all aggression. Pretty simple; youve got to qualify well. If you dont, well, now Ive got to figure out how to get through these guys. I need to go lead a lap. There is just a small subtle change in how you approach things. ... I had more fun last year chasing Denny (Hamlin) than I did other years protecting something. But I would much rather be in a position of protecting, Johnson said. ciation to schedule more talks, and the sides likely will meet again soon. But it will remain pointless if neither side is prepared to offer compromise. Owners are insistent on a 50-50 split of basketball-related income. Players have proposed reducing their guarantee from 57 percent down to 52.5, saying that will transfer more than $1.5 billion to owners over six years. And when neither side would go further Friday, NBA officials said union executive director Billy Hunter ended the session. Billy said, My phone is ringing off the hook from agents and players telling me I cannot go under 52 percent and he said unless youre willing to go there, we have nothing to talk about, Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver said. The difference between 50 and 52.5 percent is about $100 million annually, based on last seasons revenues, or $1 billion over the course of the 10-year agreement the NBA is seeking. The cost of not making a deal? We expect there to be a $2 billion loss for us for the loss of the season, which we will then begin to dig out from under and try to get back, if there were a seasons loss, Stern said. And the players would lose $2 billion. Period. The losses already have been piling up. Stern said wiping out the preseason schedule, which would have ended Friday, cost the league $200 million. The first month of real games adds another couple hundred million, and Hunter has said missing a month would cost the players about $350 million. But thats not enough to make players agree to a deal they say would cost them money and limit their options in free agency. We think we gave more than enough, and thats what we constantly said to them: Look, we did what it was you said you needed, we did it, Hunter said. And now all of a sudden, every time we did it, its like their eyes got bigger and they wanted more and more and more. So finally we just had to shut it down and just say it cant be. Stern has made it clear that owners future proposals could be made with the losses in mind. Players eventually will get their money, just less of it, but the damage to businesses that rely on the game wont be recovered. I think it is hard for the average person to understand what it is theyre arguing over, said Jim Taggart, the manager of The Fours, an upscale sports bar across the street from Bostons TD Garden. A lot of the people that work concessions at the Garden come in here, and their pay is budgeted into how they pay their mortgages, how they put their kids through school. Events at the Garden are just absolute big business. Theres a whole ancillary economy that depends on the Garden, and its pretty far reaching, all the restaurants and parking garages. The sides are much closer after three straight days of meetings in consecutive weeks. Besides the BRI split, the list of remaining items is down to just a handful, such as the ability of teams over the luxury tax threshold to use the midlevel exception or participate in sign-and-trade deals. Those are important to players. The top-spending teams are mostly the ones in the biggest markets, and players want to know teams in the most desired cities wont be prevented from bidding on them. What we did not want to do and what we dont want to do is take taxpaying teams completely out of the market for other teams free agents, union president Derek Fisher of the Lakers said. We want our midlevel players to be able to sign contracts or at least have the opportunity to sign a contract wherever they would like to play. There had been a sense of optimism going into Friday after both sides acknowledged progress on the salary cap system over the previous two days. But they hadnt talked about the split, and sure enough, once they did things fell apart again. Wasted was the meeting room the NBA had reserved through the weekend at a top New York hotel, where it hoped to be announcing a deal by Sunday. The next talks havent been scheduled, but the sides reconnected quickly after the last breakdown. Each time I come here, weve come in thinking we may be here for weeks and were not going to leave the room, Fisher said. But sometimes they end and you assume you wont talk again for weeks and youre back the next day. passing yards and suffered one of his two interceptions. Manuel sizzled in the first half, completing 17 of 22 for 212 yards and the touchdown throw to Shaw that gave Florida State its 24-0 halftime lead. His lone interception came when Rodney Smith bobbled the ball and had it swiped away by NC States Terrell Manning. But there were few highlights for the Wolfpack. They were bullied for most of the game by Florida States stronger and quicker defense and improving offensive line. Lonnie Pryor dragged a handful of N.C. State defenders into the end zone midway through the second quarter to give the Seminoles a 17-0 lead. Devonta Freeman scored on a 7-yard run for the games first touchdown and Dustin Hopkins added a 43yard field goal. A 32-yard Manuel pass to Christian Green preceded Freemans scoring run. The two-play scoring drive was set up by Greg Reids 28-yard punt return. Senior tailback Jermaine Thomas didnt score, but continued his resurgence with a game-high 48 yards rushing and another 53 yards receiving on five catches. Manuels 25 completions was a career high. The 6-5, 240-pound junior has now thrown for 1,776 yards and 13 touchdowns. It was Florida States first win of the season over a team that had a winning record. N.C. State came into the game averaging 31.4 points and 370.6 yards offense, but struggled all day to slow down Florida States speedy defense. The Wolfpacks deepest penetration of the game was at Florida States 28 and that was the benefit of a penalty. Glennon, who had thrown for 1,717 yards and 19 TDs coming into the game, completed 19 of 34 passes for 130 yards while James Washington was held to 35 yards on 13 carries. The Wolfpacks T.J. Graham, who came into the game leading the nation in all-purpose yards, picked up 76 of his 116 yards on kickoff returns. It was the first time since a 34-0 loss to South Carolina in the 2008 opener that the Wolfpack was kept off the scoreboard. Florida State, which had been ranked as high as fifth nationally earlier in the season, goes on the road for a Thursday night game at Boston College while NC State hosts intrastate rival North Carolina next Saturday.B4 S UNDAY, O CTOBER 30, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S COREBOARD NBA Continued from Page B1 FSU Continued from Page B1 NASCAR Continued from Page B1 On the AIRWAVES SUNDAY AUTO RACING 1:30 p.m. (ESPN) Sprint Cup: Tums Fast Relief 500 7 p.m. (ESPN2) NHRA Drag Racing Nationals 12 a.m. (ESPN2) Sprint Cup: Tums Fast Relief 500 (Tape) BOATING 4 p.m. (VERSUS) Boat Racing H1 Unlimited Hydroplane BOXING 8 p.m. (FSNFL) Richard Gutierrez vs. Vanes Martirosyan COLLEGE FOOTBALL 6 a.m. (FSNFL) Iowa State at Texas Tech (Tape) 8:30 a.m. (SUN) Florida vs. Georgia (Tape) 7:30 p.m. (SUN) N.

Denny Hamlin ducked inside points leader Austin Dillon and four-time Truck Series champion Ron Hornaday Jr. after a restart with 14 laps to go and went on to win at Martinsville Speedway on Saturday. Hamlins first victory in the series, in a truck owned by Kyle Busch, made him the 23rd driver to win a race in each of NASCARs three national series. It really means a lot to me to be able to get my very first Truck victory, he said. It also was a much needed confidence booster for the Sprint Cup driver.

S PORTSC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S UNDAY, O CTOBER 30, 2011 B5 week after purchasing the domain name Tebowing.com for $10. Almost overnight, it caught on through social media. He went from an audience of 785 to nearly 390,000 in just a few days. The amount of pictures hes receiving also is staggering. Just Friday alone, Kleinstein had to sort through more than 1,300 snapshots to post on the site. But Kleinstein wanted to make one thing clear: The undertaking isnt meant to mock Tebow or poke fun at his religious beliefs, just show support. On Friday after practice, Tebow said he appreciated the spirit of the website. Yeah, some people dont necessarily take it seriously but theyre on their knee praying, so who knows what youre going to think about after that and how that can affect you? Tebow said. Hopefully, its a good example for people. His teammates have even taken part. Rookie linebacker Von Miller tweeted a photo of himself Thursday in a Tebow jersey and doing the pose. Tim Tebows a celebrity and Im on Team Tebow, Miller said. Im one of his biggest supporters and want to see him do it all. Thats the way he prays. So what better way to capture that than to have a Tebowing thing like that? All it took was a small miracle to make it Tebowing time. The former Heisman Trophy winner from Florida was abysmal for the opening 55 minutes in Miami. Then, Tebow turned electric as he brought the Broncos back from a 15-0 deficit in the final moments to force overtime, where the team pulled out an 18-15 win. Its the largest deficit overcome in a victory with less than 3 minutes since the 1970 NFL merger. When we won the game, the people in the bar were jumping around as if the Broncos had just won the Super Bowl, even though we had only beaten the lastplace team in the league, Kleinstein recalled. I just looked up at the screen the team is celebrating and he took a quick bow. I just said, Thats Tebowing. Thats how we should pay tribute. After the commotion quieted, Kleinstein and his friends went outside to take a group photo in Tebows prayer formation. He posted it on Facebook just for fun and it spread quickly. Soon after, he decided to launch the website. Not only does Kleinstein post the photos, he also captions them. And theyre quite hilarious. For instance, theres a picture of a person with a bowling ball in a lane striking the pose with the explanation, Tebowling. On another, theres a person perched on an exercise ball with the slogan Tebow to the core underneath. In yet another, a man in his office has a caption reading, President and CEObowing. Tim praying, its part of who he is, Kleinstein said. Its not something that should be mocked or seen in any other way. Tebow understands that. He recently received a tweet from a kid whos undergoing cancer treatment that melted his heart. It said, Im Tebowing while Im Chemoing, Tebow recounted. How cool is that? Thats worth it right there. If that gives him any encouragement or puts a smile on his face or gives him encouragement to pray, thats really awesome. And thats completely worth it for me. There are even other standouts in the Mile High City getting in on the act. Colorado Rapids forward Omar Cummings dropped to a knee and did the pose after scoring a goal in a 1-0 victory over the Columbus Crew on Thursday night in an MLS wild-card soccer game. I think whats funny about it is how rapidly its caught on and how much its taken off, said Tebow, whose Broncos host the Detroit Lions on Sunday. I had no idea, then Von texted me what he did. Goof ball. But then going back and looking back and seeing everything, it was like, Wow this really took off. Thats whats really incredible about it. Even if it might not be completely original. After all, dropping to a knee and praying after a game has been around for, well, quite a while. Ive taken a knee many times on late field goals or those types of things in my football career, Broncos coach John Fox said. Not taking anything away from Tim and his outstanding popularity. TEBOW Continued from Page B1 Associated Press Oklahoma State running back Herschel Sims, left, runs 81 yards for a touchdown against Baylor in the fourth quarter of their game in Stillwater, Okla., Saturday. Oklahoma State won 59-24. Baylor's Joe Williams attempts a tackle. Associated PressNo. 11 Oklahoma bounced back strong from its loss and No. 3 Oklahoma State had no problem in its first game as the states top national title contender. Landry Jones passed for a schoolrecord 505 yards and the Sooners scored the games final 44 points to hand No. 10 Kansas State its first loss, 58-17 on Saturday. The Cowboys had an even easier time, jumping out to a 35-point halftime lead and running away from Baylor in a 59-24 victory. All-American Justin Blackmon matched his career best with 13 catches for 172 yards and two scores for Oklahoma State. The Sooners victory leaves Oklahoma State as the only undefeated team left in the Big 12. Preseason No. 1 Oklahoma dropped from the ranks of the unbeaten last week, losing 4138 at home to Texas Tech. But that resounding rebound in Manhattan, Kan., seemed to be a sign that the Dec. 3 Bedlam game in Stillwater between the Sooners and Cowboys could still end up deciding the Big 12 championship and maybe a spot in the national title game for Oklahoma State. No. 3 Oklahoma State 59, Baylor 24 STILLWATER, Okla. Joseph Randle set career highs by running for 152 yards and four touchdowns and Oklahoma State started a season with eight straight wins for only the second time in school history. The other time was in 1945, when the Cowboys finished the season 9-0, won the Sugar Bowl and were ranked fifth in the final poll. Brodrick Brown recovered two fumbles, and Daytawion Lowe and Justin Gilbert had interceptions as Oklahoma State (8-0, 5-0 Big 12) forced five turnovers. Robert Griffin III threw for 425 yards to end up 5 shy of his career best set last week for Baylor (4-3, 1-3). In a matchup of two of the nations top three offenses, the Bears second-ranked attack outgained Oklahoma States third-ranked unit 622-601, but the scoreboard was lopsided the opposite way. No. 7 Oregon 43, Washington State 28 EUGENE, Ore. Oregon stars LaMichael James and Darron Thomas returned from injury but true freshman DeAnthony Thomas sparked the Ducks with two second-half touchdowns. Darron Thomas, who missed a game because of a knee injury, returned to start against the Cougars but threw two interceptions in the first half and was replaced by backup Bryan Bennett in the second. Washington State (3-5, 1-4 Pac-12) lost its fourth straight. The Cougars hung tough with Oregon for much of the game and trailed by only 15-10 at halftime. Lavasier Tuinei caught two touchdown passes for Oregon (7-1, 5-0), which has won 21 straight games at Autzen Stadium. The Ducks have also won 17 straight conference games. No. 8 Arkansas 31, Vanderbilt 28 NASHVILLE, Tenn. Zach Hocker kicked a 42yard field goal with 6:53 left, and Arkansas rallied again for its fourth straight win. It was the third time this season the Razorbacks (7-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) trailed by double digits. They didnt trail by 18 as they did against Texas A&M or 17 last week before beating Mississippi. This time, Vanderbilt led 21-7 with 1:39 left in the first half. The Commodores (4-4, 1-4) also had the ball at the Arkansas 5 in the fourth quarter leading 28-20 when Zac Stacy fumbled and Jerry Franklin picked it up and ran it 94 yards for a touchdown. Tyler Wilson found Jarius Wright in the end zone for the tying 2point conversion with 13:25 left. Vanderbilt missed a chance to force overtime when Carey Spears 27-yard field goal went wide right with 8 seconds left. No. 13 Nebraska 24, No. 9 Michigan State 3 LINCOLN, Neb. Rex Burkhead scored three touchdowns and ran for 130 yards on 35 carries, and Nebraska took control of the Big Ten Legends Division. Burkhead, who went over 100 yards for the fifth time in six games, scored at the end of 80and 89yard drives in the third quarter to put Nebraska (7-1, 3-1) up 24-3. Taylor Martinez completed six of seven passes for 80 yards in the third quarter after going 1 for 6 in the first half. Michigan State (6-2, 3-1), coming off the incredible finish to its win over Wisconsin last week, managed just 187 yards against Nebraskas improving defense. Kirk Cousins was 11 of 27 for 86 yards, with an interception that set up the Huskers first score. No. 11 Oklahoma 48, No. 10 Kansas State 17 MANHATTAN, Kan. Landry Jones threw for five touchdowns and All-American Ryan Broyles caught 14 passes for 171 yards and a score. Kenny Stills added four catches for 101 yards for Oklahoma (7-1, 4-1 Big 12). Roy Finch finished with 73 yards rushing and another 69 through the air, and the Sooners potent, fast-paced attack managed 690 yards of total offense against Kansas State (7-1, 4-1), the leagues top-ranked defense. Jones passing total shattered the previous school record of 468 yards he shared with Sam Bradford, while Broyles moved into first place on the Big 12s career list with 4,499 yards receiving. No. 15 Virginia Tech 14, Duke 10 DURHAM, N.C. David Wilson rushed for 148 yards and Virginia Tech overcame a sloppy performance to win its Atlantic Coast Conference-record 11th straight road game. Logan Thomas was 17 of 28 for 190 yards with two interceptions and a 2-yard touchdown pass to Eric Martin. Josh Oglesby added a 1-yard scoring run for the Coastal Division-leading Hokies (8-1, 4-1). They entered as 15-point favorites, were sluggish and inefficient throughout, yet came up with enough plays to claim their fourth straight victory. Virginia Tech rolled up 433 yards and gave up 326 to Duke. Sean Renfree was 17 of 35 passing for 204 yards but was intercepted three times for the Blue Devils (3-5, 1-3). They couldnt overcome four turnovers and lost their third straight overall and 44th in a row against nationally ranked teams. Missouri 38, No. 16 Texas A&M 31, OT COLLEGE STATION, Texas James Franklins 11-yard touchdown pass to Marcus Lucas in overtime lifted Missouri to an upset. Texas A&M got the ball after the score, but Ryan Tannehills pass on fourth down was deflected. The Tigers had a chance to win it in regulation, but a 46-yard field goal attempt sailed wide right as time expired. Missouri (4-4, 2-3 Big 12) got the ball when Jacquies Smith caused a fumble by Tannehill, which was recovered by Dominique Hamilton. The Aggies led by 11 at halftime, but Missouri took a 31-28 lead on an 11-yard run by Henry Josey with about eight minutes left. Texas A&M (5-3, 3-2) tied it on a 35-yard field goal about four minutes later. No. 17 Michigan 36, Purdue 14 ANN ARBOR, Mich. Fitzgerald Toussaint ran for a career-high 170 yards and scored two touchdowns for Michigan. The Wolverines (7-1, 3-1 Big Ten) gave up a TD on the opening drive of the game, then scored 36 straight points to bounce back from their first loss of the season, two weeks ago at Michigan State. The Boilermakers (4-4, 2-2) havent won or lost consecutive games this year. Toussaint had 155 yards rushing through three quarters, helping Michigan find a runner to take some of the load off quarterback Denard Robinson. Backup Michael Shaw ran for a 37-yard TD on his first carry early in the fourth for a 36-7 lead. No. 21 Penn State 10, Illinois 7 STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Joe Paterno broke Eddie Robinsons record for victories by a Division I coach with No. 409 in Penn States sloppy win. The 21st-ranked Nittany Lions (8-1, 5-0 Big Ten) overcame six fumbles thanks to Silas Redds 3-yard touchdown run with 1:08 to go. Illinois (6-3, 2-3) drove from its 17 to the Penn State 25, but Derek Dimkes 42-yard field goal attempt bounced off the right upright as time expired. Redd had a career-high 30 carries for 137 yards for Penn State, none bigger than his late run set up after Illinois cornerback Justin Green was whistled for pass interference after breaking up a fourthdown pass for Derek Moye in the end zone. No. 25 West Virginia 41, Rutgers 31 PISCATAWAY, N.J. Geno Smith threw two second-half touchdown passes and scored a goahead TD on a fourth-down, 1-yard run with 6:18 to play as West Virginia rallied past Rutgers in a wet and snowy storm. Smith sandwiched touchdown passes of 19 yards to Stedman Bailey and 20 yards to Tavon Austin around his clutch dive into the end zone in rallying the Mountaineers (6-2, 2-1 Big East) from a 10-point halftime deficit to their 17th straight win over Rutgers (5-3, 2-2). Austin also scored on an 80-yard run and Shawne Alston scored on runs of 52 and 2 yards for West Virginia, which earlier this week announced its intention to leave the Big East and join the Big 12 next season. Freshman Gary Nova threw two touchdown passes for the Scarlet Knights, who were blanked in the second half after putting up a season high for points in the opening half. Details about Super Bowl Village Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS The latest artists rendering of the Super Bowl Village in Indianapolis shows fans in short sleeves soaking up the festive atmosphere. Whats missing? Snow, ice and cold temperatures. Local organizers hope theyll have good weather for the citys first Super Bowl coming up on Feb. 5, but have spent months making contingency plans and believe theyre ready for anything. Im not worried about being able to deal with inclement weather over the three blocks (of the Super Bowl Village), said host committee chairman Mark Miles. Were not worried about snow. Its really a bigger issue. Weve talked previously about our weather response team, and they are very geared up to deal with all of the possible weather conditions. As the countdown to the big game hit 100 days Friday, Miles and host committee president Allison Melangton provided updates about everything from entertainment to weather plans. With the city averaging 27 inches of snow each year and temperatures in January and February typically dropping into the 20s, weather has become a major concern, following problems in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area last year. Snow, ice and unseasonable cold hampered travel around North Texas. The Indy village is within walking distance of Lucas Oil Stadium, and committee officials plan to keep fans warm by installing radiant heaters around the village. Organizers think it will feel more like tailgating at Green Bay games or partying at the Winter Olympics than being out in the cold. We think people absolutely will embrace the weather, Miles said. When the village opens Jan. 27, there will be two entertainment stages one that Miles described as big enough for any band in the world. Smaller acts will perform on the second stage, and more than 80 bands are scheduled to play in the 10-day run up to the game. Though organizers have not said who has been booked, Miles promised some big names. There will be some national acts, he said. Some that even I have heard of. Miles would not confirm reports that Madonna has been booked as the Super Bowl halftime act. Melangton said she expected the NFL to make that announcement within 30 days. For fans seeking untraditional entertainment, the village will have four zip lines strung 80 feet above a downtown street and running 650 feet in length. The concept was first used at the Vancouver Olympics and was so popular, fans waited for hours to ride the zip lines. Cowboys, Sooners romp in Big 12 UCF breaks out of slump with 41-0 win over Memphis Associated PressORLANDO Despite back-to-back disappointing performances that ended with losses, for two weeks Central Florida coach George OLeary was steadfast in conveying his confidence in sophomore Jeff Godfrey as his starting quarterback. Saturday, Godfrey got back to showing his coach the reasons why he got the job in the first place. And, perhaps, it could be the spark the Knights need to get their season back on track. Godfrey rushed for one touchdown and threw for another to break out of his recent slump as the Knights dominated Memphis 41-0 on Saturday. Godfrey, who has struggled at times with his accuracy, completed 14 of 17 passes for 200 yards. He also led the Knights with 97 yards rushing on 10 carries. He said he tried to dial up his aggression on the ground. Yes, (running the ball) was a mission of mine, Godfrey said. Ive been doing a good job of staying in the pocket, but coach told me to go out and play like I was playing last year. When things werent there, I took it down and made some yards. The win snapped a twogame losing streak for UCF (4-4, 2-2 Conference USA) and keeps it in the hunt in Conference USAs East Division. OLeary said earlier this week that he wouldnt hesitate to use backup quarterback Blake Bortles Saturday if Godfrey got into trouble against the Tigers. But with Godfrey playing well, he didnt insert Bortles until the third quarter when the game was well in hand. I think (Godfrey) was a lot more decisive (and) a lot more aggressive than what hes been doing, OLeary said. He finally ran like hes been running in past years. This is the first game this year that I actually saw him run like I expect him to run. Memphis coach Larry Porter said there is no question that Godfreys start Saturday had an effect on his team, saying it was just a step slower than him all game. Knights receiver Quincy McDuffie caught Godfreys touchdown pass and added another rushing score. UCFs defense also came alive after a recent slump by tying a season-high with three sacks. OLeary called it a good victory in all three phases and said winning in such convincing fashion was also good because it allowed him to play a lot of players. That, he said, is important with a short week of practice before hosting Tulsa on Thursday night. Memphis (2-7, 1-4) was shut out for the second time this season and lost for the fifth time in six games. The Tigers struggled to move the ball against the Knights all game and were short-handed when leading receiver Tannar Rehrer left the game in the first half after taking a hard hit.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES Current-season shows on The CW including The Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl are coming to Hulu. The five-year deal announced Friday means that before the end of the year, the online video service will feature shows from five of the largest six broadcasters ABC, NBC, Fox, The CW, and Univision. The only holdout is CBS. Under the new deal, subscribers who pay $8 a month for Hulu Plus will get the five most recent episodes from The CWs lineup the day after they are broadcast on television. The same episodes will then be available for free on CWTV.com three days after broadcast. Eight days after broadcast, the episodes will be available on the free version of Hulu for computers. All the versions will come with ads. But episodes on Hulu and Hulu Plus have about half the regular ad load of television, or about two or three ads per break. CWTV.com will host shows that have the same number as on television, or about four per break. The deal is the latest move by Hulu to bulk up on its library of content since its owners The Walt Disney Co., News Corp., Comcast Corp. and Providence Equity Partners decided not to sell it earlier this month. Hulus senior vice president of content, Andy Forsell, said the offering will resonate with The CWs tech savvy audience, which is focused on young women aged 18-34. Their audience is obviously a generation that is really comfortable online, he said. Theyre very comfortable going back and forth. The CW sees the move as a way to capture new licensing revenue, but also bring viewers back to watching the debut broadcast on television. They can actually help drive viewers back to the network and the local stations that are airing our shows, said Mark Pedowitz, president of The CW. Putting shows on the free version Hulu eight days after the initial broadcast is not unusual. Fox imposed the delay on its shows starting in August, although it allows day-after access to subscribers of certain pay TV subscriptions. Earlier this month, The CW also agreed to make all its previous seasons shows available to subscribers of Netflix Inc.s streaming plan, which also costs $8 a month. Those episodes come without ads. The CW is co-owned by CBS Corp. and Time Warner Inc.s Warner Bros.Shows coming to Hulu Birthday : In the year ahead, you are likely to find yourself in a prolonged cycle where youll be able to further your material aspirations with relative ease.

Hillsborough County jail records show Michael Lohan was being held Saturday without bond on four charges. He was arrested on domestic violence charges Tuesday. His bail was set at $5,000 and a judge warned him not to make any contact with his onand-off girlfriend. Two days later, he was accused of violating the terms of his release by making a harassing phone call to her. Police went to arrest him and he tried to avoid them by jumping off a third-floor balcony at a Tampa hotel. He was injured and had to be taken to the hospital. He was released from the hospital Friday and put back in jail.

The warrant served on a hard drive belonging to Christopher Chaney, 35, showed that it was used to conduct Internet searches as recently as last November for a Connecticut woman who had complained to police that Chaney had been chatting with her online since she was 13 years old. The woman, who authorities dont believe to be a celebrity, said in a 53-page report that Chaney caused her serious emotional distress by stealing several of her online accounts and sending her friends and family private, copyrighted embarrassing images and video, according to the warrant. She also claimed Chaney posted her photos on porn-related forums. Chaney has been indicted in California on 26 counts, including unauthorized computer access and wiretapping, and faces up to 121 years in prison if convicted. He is scheduled to appear in a Los Angeles courtroom Tuesday. His attorney, Chris Chesnut, did not have an immediate comment about the new allegations. Chaney, free on $10,000 bond, has apologized for his actions. Chesnut wouldnt say if his client would plead guilty. We are all open to resolve this, Chesnut told AP on Friday. He doesnt want to drag this out and have a trial. Hes very interested in a quick, expeditious resolution but it has to be within reason. Federal prosecutors said Chaney hacked into email accounts belonging to Aguilera, Johansson and Mila Kunis. Some nude photos taken by Johansson herself were posted on the Internet. The warrant also said Chaney admitted during a February interview with FBI agents to getting unauthorized access to celebrity email accounts. Chaney said he managed to hack into Johannsons email account to send one of her acquaintances an email containing a nude photo of her in exchange for a photo, authorities said. He also used stylist Simone Harouches email account to send a message to Aguilera asking for photos, according to the search warrant. Authorities said Chaneys hard drive contained numerous private celebrity photos as well as a document that compiled their extensive personal data. The warrant contends there is probable cause that Chaney violated federal stalking and unauthorized access to a computer charges. Thom Mrozek, a spokesman with the U.S. attorneys office in Los Angeles, declined comment on whether additional charges would be filed against Chaney. Authorities said by August 2008, Chaney had gained access to two of the womans email or chat accounts and over the next 10 months would either pose as her or upload her personal files. In some instances, nude images of the woman taken when she was underage were accessed, according to the warrant. I assume that Christopher Chaney collected images of and information about me over the last 11 years and used it to crack security questions and get into my sent email messages, the woman told authorities.

Conditioning myself to the new normal T here are too many choices in life. No, I am not talking about the GOP primary field. Im talking about the problem a guy faces buying shampoo at the local grocery store. I know this makes me sound really old, but there was a time when you simply went to the store and purchased shampoo. Youd take a shower, rub the regular shampoo into your hair and then youd be clean. It was simple. Those were good times. I was in Publix the other day trying to purchase shampoo. There were shelves and shelves of different colored bottles that all appeared to be shampoo. The problem was, I could not find a single bottle that said Shampoo for regular guys. Instead, there were thousands of bottles of different shampoos. There are so many more choices we face in life, why do we have to waste these rare brain cells on deciding which shampoo to buy? There is shampoo for dry hair, oily hair, tired hair, old hair, flat hair and hair with dandruff. What if you just have regular hair? Root Awakening Shampoo and Conditioner was my first choice. I was pretty sure my roots were not sleeping, so that didnt seem like a great choice. Do people really have hair roots that sleep? I have seen some guys like County Administrator Brad Thorpe that dont have hair, but I dont think thats because his roots are sleeping. Pro Mend Split End Shampoo didnt seem right, I didnt think I had split ends and was afraid of what would happen. In truth, I am not sure what split ends are. Herbal Essence Aussie Shampoo. Hmmm. I like the Aussies, but Im not sure I want them messing around with my head. I might start talking with an accent. Or worse, I might suddenly understand the rules of cricket and then U.S. Customs would bar me from ever returning to America. No one in this country understands cricket and there are strict U.S. Customs rules to keep out terrorists and cricket advocates. The next shampoo I picked up was Herb Shampoo for Thirsty Hair: Herbal Essence Hello Hydration. I am not so sure about thirsty hair thing. My hair might be thinning, See WINDOW / Page C4 Gerry Mulligan OUT THE WINDOW Section C SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated Press Occupy LA protester Mike Oren, of Bowling Green, Ohio, stands outside Los Angeles City Hall on Thursday. Protesters who have ta ken over the lawn at City Hall in a nearly month-long Occupy LA event vowed Thursday to continue their demonstration as the mayor sought alternate sites for their encampment. C ARL H ARTZELL Special to the ChronicleI am a bit confused regarding the recent demonstrations going on in the United States. All I know is what I read and hear from the newspapers and the media. Frankly, I am one of the many who do not trust many of these entities to tell the full story and who willingly slant the news to suit their purposes. But first, a mea culpa. I was in an occupation that many persons hate. I spent many years in banking and finance. I started out as a messenger and took an early retirement as a vice president in charge of the agricultural and agribusiness activities of a major U.S. bank. My territory at retirement was all of South and Central America and the Caribbean. Upon retirement I joined two volunteer groups and had financial projects in Egypt (four individual projects), then one in Czechoslovakia, and lastly Poland (one project in two parts). Each project was for a minimum period of three months. Altogether, I was available for projects for approximately 10 years. After retirement, my bank was ultimately bought out by another. I had never cared for the management of the purchasing bank, and after reading the terms of the purchase, I voted against the merger. Unfortunately, the merger was approved. I felt the salaries of the top three officers were completely unwarranted. As such, each year I would vote not to approve the members of the board who were on the Executive Compensation Committee. However, each year they would be re-elected and approve additional unwarranted compensation. I mention this background to indicate that I agree with those of the percent who believe some of the Wall Street fat cats receive excessive compensation. But I also think the 99 percent are looking at a photograph and not a moving picture. These major banks are not owned by the CEOs, they are owned by thousands of stockholders. They employ thousands of persons. Many of the banks, not all, have retirement packages for the rank and file. What are your ultimate plans, 99 percent? Are you going to cut off the head of the snake and believe the rest of the snake will still be able to live? Is your ultimate goal to nationalize the banking industry? Or are you doing the work for the labor unions to organize the banking industry whose thousands of workers today are not organized? Frankly, I think it is the latter. Yes, I know that you think it is the bankers who caused all the problems in the real estate market. Sure, I made some loans (not real estate) that became bad, and I had to reject applications for credit from friends and family, but I never made a loan real estate or commercial that I believed was unsound. But let me allow you in on some additional information. The politicians had a lot of input for the mess we are in. Go back to the Carter administration. Banks had to agree to invest in the inner cities in order to obtain charters to operate, open additional branches, and maintain government deposits. Governmental agencies lowered the requirements to obtain loans and demanded the banks extend lower quality, high-risk loans. Take a look at the management of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. They cannot avoid their responsibility in the mess. How do you expect to replace the banking industry? Do we go on a cash basis? I can just hear the criminals panting, waiting to break into our homes and businesses. I understand that you expect the banks to work on a basis of break-even. Where do you expect the banks will obtain their capital to operate? Would you be a stockholder in any business that does not pay dividends? Where do you expect to find your operating heads if you are unwilling to pay them a reasonable amount for their efforts? For your foreign trade, who is going to issue and/or negotiate letters of credit? Who is going to finance the needs of the farmer and rancher to produce feeds and meats? What do you plan to do about the individual who can move his cash or business to another country? In closing, what gives you the right to occupy private property? I am certain that your supporters have plenty of properties that should be available for your use. Or dont you believe that a Mans home is his castle? Why do you believe you have the right to share in my earnings? Why do you think that you have the right to demand that I pay for your education? It is obvious that your professors, etc., have convinced you that a communistic government is the way to go. Well, I spent three weeks in the Soviet Union in 1977. I cannot say I am an expert, but what I did see is that the system has more classes than does capitalism. Some live in the Lenin Hills with swimming pools, tennis courts, servants, limousines, can travel abroad, can have money in foreign currencies and their kids have first choice of entry into universities. The next group has upscale housing, can shop at selected stores and use limousines with drivers. Their kids are second-choice to enter college. The next group can shop at selected stores. They hope there will be openings for their kids to go to college, have large cars, and are heads of local political agencies, scared to death they might lose their status. Last group: The hoi polloi 65-year-old lady sweeping the gutters who lives on the fifth floor of an apartment building with no elevator. She uses the subway and buses. The stores she shops at have merchandise in windows but nothing available inside. Her grandkids are not able to go to university. Sorry kids. Once when I was young, I was gung-ho for a one-world government, oneworld language, no more wars, no more hunger and unions. But then I woke up. Sugarmill Woods resident Carl Hartzell spent 43 years in the banking industry and, in retirement, held volunteer positions with the International Executive Service Corps and VOCO. He has worked in more than 50 countries on six continents. He was in the U.S. Navy in World War II, serving in the Pacific Theater. I understand that you expect the banks to work on a basis of break-even. Where do you expect the banks will obtain their capital to operate? Would you be a stockholder in any business that does not pay dividends? Where do you expect to find your operating heads if you are unwilling to pay them a reasonable amount for their efforts? M ICHAEL F RANCIS Special to the ChronicleDaniel Yergin, The Quest: Energy, Security, and the Remaking of the Modern World (New York: Penguin Press, 2011) $37.95.T his important book covers the recent history, economics and politics of a wide range of energy sources: oil, natural gas, shale, coal, nuclear, water, wind, electricity, batteries, and renewables. One wishes every member of Congress, presidential candidates and the president himself were made to study this book, because these issues shape the economic future of the country and the entire globe. The author has a tremendous fund of knowledge and writes with clarity. His earlier important volume, The Prize, a history of the global oil industry, won all sorts of acclaim and awards when it was published in 1991. But honesty forces me to point out the bad news: The book runs over 700 pages and we are not talking about large type. It is a fascinating but daunting book. Three fundamental themes guide the study: The first is the question of whether there is enough energy available to meet the growing global needs and at what cost and with what technologies? The second theme is the security of our energy options and how they can be protected from such things as wars and upheavals. The third theme is the environment what can be done to protect it from the side-effects of energy use. He begins with an account of the opening up of the post-Cold War Russia and its former republics with their important oil resources. The end of communism meant the complete re-casting of the antiquated, corrupt communist oil production conglomerate and the opening of important new fields in such places as Kazakhstan, the Ukraine and the region of the Caspian Sea. It was a modern version of the California Gold Rush with inexperienced governments confronting global oil conglomerates with their investment resources, technology and management skills.

Page C2 SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2011 Unequal distribution It is interesting to see union signs at the Wall Street demonstrations against corporate greed (profits). I found it particularly interesting that there were UAW signs at the demonstrations since the UAW has greed(profit-) sharing in their contracts with the American auto companies. Also, most pension plans are invested in the stock market and depend on corporate greed (profits) for their payments to their retirees. At least the union demonstrators cannot be accused of being hypocrites, since they are putting their convictions and beliefs ahead of their own financial well-being. Also, I agree that corporations do not pay taxes. They are a collection arm of the IRS. They collect taxes from their customers for the government. The hundreds of billions of dollars that companies pay in taxes is a business expense that is built into the price of the the products we buy. Obama wants to raise taxes on the oil companies by $40 billion, so gasoline, heating oil, asphalt, etc., everything made with oil will go up by $40 billion. The money has to come from somewhere; unlike the federal government, corporations cannot print money. Remember, capitalism is the unequal distribution of wealth, and socialism is the equal distribution of poverty.Len Wozniak Inverness Citizens not winning Kudos to Harley Lawrences Oct. 15 critique of the port boondoggle in which, following past practices, the Economic Development Council appropriated seed money to the project.

The county commission reminds me of the battery commercials bunny banging on the drum they just keep coming.Tom Corkery Hernando D ONALDL AMBRO T he modest uptick in economic growth is a welcome breather in the bleak Obama economy, but it wont reduce unemployment anytime soon. The Commerce Department reported Thursday that the gross domestic product (GDP), the broadest measure of the economys performance, grew in the third quarter at an annual rate of 2.5 percent. It means the economy is still weak far from the 3.5 percent to 5 percent growth needed to put millions of unemployed Americans back to work. The governments estimate, and thats what it really is, will be revised at least twice in the months to come, and it may well be less than 2.5 percent. But whatever the real rate may be, economists arent expecting GDP to take off in the last three months of this year or next year, either. We are looking at very disappointing growth over the next year. It will be far short of what is needed to get businesses to hire more aggressively, said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moodys Analytics. The Obama administration will, no doubt, try to turn this 2.5 percent rate into Morning in America campaign ads, but the long-term unemployed know the difference, and so do top economic analysts. This is what passes for growth in the Age of Obama. This is about as good as its going to get in his presidency. This GDP rate implies that the economy is growing only about as fast as it is capable of in the longer term, writes Washington Posteconomic reporter Neil Irwin. But its not fast enough to claw out of the deep hole of 9 percent unemployment, Irwin says, adding that it isnt strong enough to bring down unemployment meaningfully, even if it were sustained. The Gallup Polls daily survey shows that nearly three-quarters of Americans say the economy is getting worse. The Conference Board, a private research firm, reported Tuesday that consumer confidence fell again this month to the lowest level since March 2009. Thats bad news for President Obama, whos had three years to get the economy and job creation up and growing again, but with little success. The economy is still limping along, and almost went into a stall in the first half of this year. Obamas jobs plan No. 2, a poisonous brew of higher taxes and more spending (that even several Senate Democrats oppose), is going nowhere in Congress. A hastily assembled campaign agenda of executive orders are minimal initiatives at best that are not going to move a $14 trillion economy or create many new jobs. The real unemployment rate, including those forced to work part-time, is at 16 percent. The U.S. Census Bureau said last month that the number of Americans in poverty has risen to 15.1 percent of the population and includes 22 percent of all children the highest its been since 1993. Obamas job approval polls are stuck in the 40-to-41-percent range, and no president since FDR has won a second term with unemployment as high as it is now. All of this has opened up a much-needed debate on tax cuts among Republican presidential candidates, whove proposed tax incentives to unleash capital investment that will trigger stronger economic growth and job creation. Business executive Herman Cain has his 9-9-9 flat-tax plan that would impose a 9 percent national sales tax on top of existing state and local sales taxes. For millions of midto lower-income Americans who are living paycheck to paycheck, it would mean higher taxes, according to many economists and the Wall Street Journal Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a latecomer to the presidential sweepstakes, has thrown together a 20 percent flat-income-tax plan in an attempt to rescue his sagging bid for the nomination. Perry would give taxpayers the option of taking the flat rate or filing under the existing system with its loopholes, credits and tax giveaways. Most of the wealthy of course dont pay 20 percent now, so dont count on them to volunteer for Mr. Perrys plan, economist Peter Morici says. Neither will the 40 percent of lower-income Americans who now pay no income taxes. To his credit, Perrys plan calls for slashing government spending to 18 percent of GDP but the bipartisan super-committee cant seem to agree on a $1.2 trillion deficit-cutting savings package, let alone the sizeable spending cuts hes called for. There is much appeal to the flat-income-tax idea among a lot of Americans who think it would insert fairness into our tax system, but the unmoving political reality is that it stands no chance of passing Congress, now or in the foreseeable future. What can pass Congress is a full-scale overhaul of this monstrously complex, inefficient and inherently unfair tax code. A simplification plan should eliminate costly special-interest tax breaks and other loopholes, and lower tax rates accordingly. Mitt Romney, the presumed front-runner, has proposed a far broader plan that calls for expanding trade, domestic energy and deregulation reforms, cutting corporate taxes to 25 percent, erasing capital gains taxes on incomes under $200,000 and ending the estate tax. Romney would keep the Bush income tax rates for now, while developing a lower-tax-rate reform plan that can muster a majority on Capitol Hill. Obama wrongly thought he could spend his way out of the recession by doling out borrowed tax dollars on parts of the economy, i.e., public sector jobs, and infrastructure projects here and there. He failed miserably.

In the state of Florida, children are often the ones who are hit hardest when there is a reduction of services. In Citrus County there has been a well-publicized dispute between Sheriff Jeff Dawsy and state Sen. Charlie Dean (RInverness) over the funding for child protective services. Sheriff Dawsy has a contract from the Department of Children and Families to investigate all child abuse and neglect cases in our community. Six other Florida sheriffs have the same contractual relationship with DCF, and the Citrus County effort is often cited as an example of outstanding work. But for two years running the contract has been under attack from powerful forces in Tallahassee who dont want the local sheriff to do the work. Sen. Charlie Dean says its not a question about the quality of work, but about the amount of money being spent to get the job done. Sheriff Dawsy, in defense of his program, argues that no one has ever asked him to try and provide the service at a reduced cost. Instead, the sheriff says, political forces have tried to move the contract dollars back to DCF so they can hire employees to do the work. The sheriff believes that Sen. Dean is behind the move to strip the local department of the function. Its difficult to cut through the political alliances in Tallahassee, and in truth, most folks arent that interested. What we are interested in is that the best possible service be provided to the children who are victims of abuse and neglect. And we have not heard anything but praise for the job that the Citrus County Sheriffs Department has done for our children. The politics needs to be pulled out of this equation. If the Florida Legislature is slashing the funds for DCF and limiting its investigations of child abuse and neglect, so be it. Were not happy with that action, but these are tough economic times for government and cuts are taking place everywhere. It does not make sense for Tallahassee to force DCF to take back child abuse investigations if our sheriffs department is capable of doing a more competent job. The administrators at DCF are not the ones who want to take the job away from the sheriffs department they understand that this is best worked as a law enforcement function. Instead of getting involved in department functions, the politicians should do what they are hired to do and approve the state budget. Then DCF, a state administrative agency, should turn to our county sheriff and admit that the 2011 funding level has been cut and ask him to do the job at the new funding level. The leadership of DCF is happy with the job being done by the sheriffs department. The legislators should not micromanage how the money is spent; they should simply charge DCF with the task of making sure the job is done competently. Protecting our children from abuse and neglect is a core responsibility of all in government service. We should not permit political backbiting to get in the way of whats best for these vulnerable children. THE ISSUE: Who should protect the children?OUR OPINION: Keep the politics out.

From a safety issue, there is a definite need for sidewalks going toward (U.S.) 19. Some people have no choice but to walk, and its dangerous. But a bigger issue is that there is no sidewalk to the south of Homosassa Elementary School.

C OMMENTARYC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S UNDAY, O CTOBER 30, 2011 C3 Let me tell you bout the birds and the bees, and the flowers and the trees, and the moon up above, and a thing called love. Herb Newman, 1965. A s I would suspect most of you readers are aware, the birds and the bees is an expression that refers to courtship and the natural activity which results in the birth of babies. The phrase is evocative of the metaphors and euphemisms often used to avoid speaking directly and technically about the subject to children as they grow to young adulthood. Where did the expression originate? Some hint that it may have been inspired by the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1825) with: All nature seems at work, the bees are stirring, birds are on the wing, and I the while, the sole unbusy thing, not honey make, nor pair, nor build, nor sing. Credit is even given by some to Cole Porter (1928) and his Lets Do It, Lets Fall in Love lyrics: ... thats why birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it, lets do it, lets fall in love. Personally, the words by Cole Porter are more to my liking, but why cant parents just speak in a straightforward fashion with their children about such things? Why? Why, indeed. This most natural act in all of Gods plan is the most unnatural thing for parents to discuss with their children and, I think, bringing birds and bees into the picture only confuses the issue. When my father thought I was of an age for the talk, he matter-of-factly asked, Son, what do you know about .? (He didnt use the euphemism, he said the three-letter s word, right out loud!) Being the smart-aleck kid that I was, I replied, Im sure I still have a few things to learn, but maybe I can help you. What do you need to know? Times change, but kids dont not much. When it was my turn to have the talk with son Fred, I posed a question to him similar to the one my father had asked me. Freds response was, Im good, Dad, but if you have questions, try the Internet. On a more romantic note, I offer a short, edited quote from my novel in process, words which I believe explain the birds and the bees best: ....it was more than words spoken by a preacher, it was the melding of our innermost beings, the combining of our hearts, our souls and our spirits...the first night we spent as husband and wife, Cheryl and I truly became one flesh. Of course, Cheryl and I are still learning about the birds and the bees. We have our own little tropical paradise right outside the breakfast nook, straight through the lanai to the pool deck which is surrounded by all sorts of marvelous plants, including some Cheryl brought back from Hawaii. We sit there in the water together admiring Gods handiwork, observing, among other things, hummingbirds, butterflies and bumblebees, oft times seeing a particular variety we havent noticed before, but always knowing that the love He has allowed us to share remains one of His best efforts. Fred Brannen is an Inverness resident and a Chronicle columnist. Let me tell you about the birds and the bees Fred Brannen A SLICE OF LIFE The story is a complex tale of money and politics with control of the new oil fields as the prize. Corruption and international politics were awash in the area that now is an important global source of petroleum and natural gas. Further confusing the situation, the United States sent troops into Iraq, which had been one of the top five oil producers but whose production was shattered by the conflict and much harder to repair than Washington had anticipated. A new important player in the pursuit of oil and gas has been China. Its continued economic growth is dependent on access to oil and thus far its demand has outstripped its ability to produce oil. His account of Chinas domestic and international efforts to assure continued growth of the economy is interesting and a topic that has not been widely covered in the American press. But there are other challengers for global importance such as booming India with its enormous literate population and few oil resources. Suddenly Brazil must be recognized as a global force with its large population, the discovery of major oil reserves and an economy that has boomed over the last 15 years. Yergins long discussion of how the oil price exploded in the 1960s is interesting and instructive. Politics, economics and nationalism all played a role. The supply varied but the demand never waned. Hence we Americans are now paying much more for gasoline and even that price is somewhat subsidized by various government policies. This has hurt our economy but also made us more focused on the development of all sources of resources. Yergin gives a lot of attention to Californias search for reliable power sources and particularly the problems it experienced with electricity. It is a story of a series of mistakes and miscalculations that left California with rolling blackout shortages. The problem was, as usual, a failure to anticipate the possible accidents and then a series of laws with good intentions but based on incorrect economic assumptions bad politics mixed with bad economics. The book has a relatively long discussion of how climate studies gradually pointed more and more to global warming and then the counterattacks on the concept of global warming. It is by far the best account of how the research developed slowly and rather innocently and then suddenly had findings that were controversial. There is a gigantic gap between the politicians (including all but one of the Republicans running for the presidency) who deny global warming and the overwhelming support of the concept in the scientific community. The author has an illuminating discussion of renewables (wind, direct sunlight, biofuels, biomass, geothermal, hydro power, and passive solar). His descriptions of the ups and downs of the wind industry mixes science, economic forces, and technologies into a future that seemed promising, collapsed, and now is slowly making a comeback. The various attempts to produce a successful electric car are educational although Yergin feels that a cost-effective and convenient electric car is probably two decades off. Until then, the internal combustion engine will dominate. Reading his account of various issues (for example the ethanol situation) makes you realize how much of what we read about the energy debate is controlled by economic interests on one side or another. A good example of this is the controversy over the capturing of natural gas (currently a big boom in the northern Midwest) by corporations and representatives for the profit-oriented companies and the environmentalists who see dangers in the hydraulic fracturing (fracking) process. It is hard to find someone well informed on this who starts with an objective point of view. Instead it is the opponents on either side that compete for the publics attention. (By the way, Yergin doesnt seem particularly worried about the environmental effects of the fracking.) Bottom line: Great book, enormous amount of information by a person with long experience and a balanced perspective on these important issues. But, very hard to read. Give yourself a reward if you make it to the end.

REVIEW Continued from Page C1 Editors note: The follow letter was sent to Ryan Beatty, the CEO at Citrus Memorial and is published here at the request of the author.D ear Ryan, Thank you for your letter of September 20 responding to my concerns expressed in a meeting with you, Chris Poole and Foundation Advisory Council member Shawn Fitzpatrick. In our initial group meeting I clearly expressed my discomfort, as a substantial contributor to the capital campaign, with the redirection and I think ultimately misdirection of the campaign funds. Those concerns are ongoing. The capital campaign project was proposed to fulfill a perceived and real need for health care provision in our county. The so-called family center, as envisioned, was to provide educational and medical services to a population in need. In particular, this was intended to materially impact chronic disease management, including endemic obesity and associated diabetes, hypertension and heart disease. Those are the areas of focus that can make a real difference in future health care benefit and cost savings in a medically unsophisticated population. However, the family center concept has now morphed into an Oncology Center of Excellence. I am baffled by this transformation along with other contributors and council members tied to the project. Whose need is being fulfilled? I do not believe, as you state, that my concerns are unfounded. To a large degree, the Oncology Center of Excellence will result in an expensive du plication of services that already exist withinthe medical group practices in the county. Certainly, the benefit proposed for the navigator program for cancer patients does not require housing in a 2 million dollar building. The real benefit of the navigation program will be to control and steer patients within the framework of Citrus Memorial Health System and their chosen collaborator physician panel. In conclusion, I feel strongly that the campaign contributions made by wife and me, as well as others, have been misdirected and misappropriated to the development of a cancer center in place of the initially proposed family center. I would propose that a meeting for further discussion of these significant concerns be established to include the Foundation Advisory Council, administration and campaign fund contributors. Thank you for your consideration. Dr. Thomas Stringer GUEST COLUMN An open letter to Ryan Beatty Letters to THE EDITOR Disappointing survey I received Jimmie T. Smiths survey in the mail today. I hope he isnt using taxpayer money on such a biased and poorly prepared survey. It is the typical political survey designed to get his desired responses, not a real chance for honest input. The questions were narrow in scope and didnt address the issues Citrus County really faces. I consider Mr. Smiths survey mailing a disgrace and a waste of time and money.K. Williams Hernando A splendid successI was delighted to read about Ben Levs success. It was even more gratifying to read his parents comments about our local school system. Teachers have evermore referred to their students as my children, and they are ours for the year. We rejoice in their successes. It is super to read good things rather than police reports. Ben was a delightful addition to any class, with a curiosity far beyond his years. Its wonderful to see that it has led him into a world which most of us recognize only by label. Congratulations to him and his wonderful parents. E. V. Myers Crystal River Port Citrus boondoggle We have been residents of Citrus County for 23 years. We have seen commissioners come and go, some good and some not so good. We have seen many ideas put forward by preceding commissioners. Many years ago a spring training stadium was proposed that would have taken the taxpayers to the cleaners. Fortunately, the people protested loud and long, and since the taxpayers were not being cooperative, the team decided to go elsewhere. Now we have a new boondoggle being foisted upon the taxpayers: Port Citrus. Our county commissioners have set up a Port Authority board, consisting of themselves. They are setting up a budget separate from the general fund. Who is funding this budget? The taxpayers. Who will have future jobs on this board when they are no longer commissioners? Guess? No, they are not getting paid for it now, but how long will that last if they are no longer a commissioner? I cant help but wonder whether any of them have ever taken a ride down the barge canal to the gulf. It is a long, long way to the gulf. Why would any ship want to come here? Even the Sun Cruz gambling boat that was there several years ago did not last very long. If private enterprise wants to spend money on this boondoggle, welcome to you. But not one dime of taxpayer money should be spent. Our roads are falling apart, the library is closing earlier due to a shortage of funds, but the commissioners can spend our taxpayer dollars on a pipe dream. I guess its called feathering the nest. Carol and Ted Vogt Beverly Hills Thanks from Daystar It has been a struggle for Daystar to keep food in our pantry over the past few months. We have been consistently seeing more than 40 families a day and there have been days recently where we have provided families with more than 1,000 pounds of food. By Oct. 22, our shelves were almost bare. Thankfully, we were blessed that day because the community came together to make the Make a Difference Day Post Office Food Drive a success. We at Daystar are very grateful to the postal workers who pulled extra duty to collect the food, to Debbie Lattin, of Citrus Harvest, for coordinating the drive throughout the county, and to Karen Evans, who coordinated the many who helped collect, unload and sort the food at Daystar. Thank you to our friends from the Black Diamond community, and to the many Knights of Columbus members who assisted from three Citrus County councils, who volunteered to collect and sort the food. I would also like to especially thank all those in the community who took the time to donate food to help your neighbors in need. Thank you, Citrus County!Denise Kennard Executive director, Daystar Life Center Keep trail clean Withlacoochee State Trail. Yes, the state trail is for all users (and) non-motorized vehicles, but for some reason its only the bikers who get off their rear-ends and do the work to maintain the trail. The state does not have the budget or the people to do a lot of things that are done on the trail. This is a wonderful opportunity for all of you non-bikers to come out and maybe volunteer. And maybe you have some really good ideas of things that would be an asset to the trail that the bikers havent thought of because we dont have your input. Give it some thought and maybe you can be of a help.Hearing aid help I read in the Sound Off that Medicaid helps pay for hearing aids. I need one badly but I have Medicare and they wont help me.

People were asked to leave bags of nonperishable foodstuffs by their mailboxes by 8:30 a.m. It was a most kind gesture on the part of the postal employees to take on the added work of collecting food bags during their normal work hours.

but it has not mentioned anything about being thirsty. I am occasionally thirsty, and thats when I go to Burkes in Crystal River. They dont care what my hair looks like. There was Bamboo Luminous Shine Shampoo. Bamboo grows quickly, but would it work on hair? Or would bamboo begin to grow out of my head? Do people really buy this stuff? Where was the shampoo? What happened to the regular stuff? Then I found Extra Dry Gentle Shampoo with Oat Extract. Sounded like it should have been in the cereal aisle. Do people really rub oat extract onto their heads and not expect horses to get excited when they walk by? Finally I spotted a large green bottle that said Regular on it. There it was right in the middle of this menagerie of fruit and oat excess a bottle that spelled out its simple marketing proposition: Regular. I am regular, so I made the purchase. Later that evening as we were preparing to go out for dinner I took a shower and washed my hair. I lovingly cradled my large bottle of Regular shampoo, squeezed out a healthy portion of normality and rubbed it all over my head. It felt a little slimly, but I guessed that regular was like that. Are you going to take a shower, my wife asked me a little while later as we prepared to leave. I already did, I said defensively. She wanted to know why I hadnt washed my hair. I did, I told her. I used my new Regular stuff. We both walked to the shower to check out my purchase. Turns out the very small letters underneath Regular said conditioner. I had washed my thinning hair with conditioner and the greasy strands stuck to my forehead, giving me a remarkable resemblance to Pee-wee Herman. My wife made me use her Raspberry Citrus Herbal Shampoo to clean the conditioner out of my hair. I smelled like a salad bar. Later, at dinner, I told the waiter I did not need salad dressing and would just rub the lettuce with the raspberry citrus stuff on my head. Normal aint what it used to be.

He claims that millionaires and billionaires and people who own private jets are not paying a fair share of taxes. But his proposals affect those earning as little as $200,000 per year. The president also wants to close the wealth gap between rich and poor. The top 10 percent of American workers earn 50 percent of all wages, and the difference in pay between top and bottom earners is greater than ever before. He believes this is a failure of capitalism that requires government intervention. Is he correct? Would raising taxes on successful citizens help those less successful? Does the government have an obligation to see that wealth is shared equally by all? Is equality of life outcomes even possible? For all who understand economics and study the history of nations and civilizations, the answer to those questions is an emphatic No! Each of us is unique, unlike any other human being. Some are born gifted while others are born with lesser talents. The choices we make about education, job selection, how hard to work, whether to save or spend and others, in combination with our unique talents and the changes in type of work needed in the economy are most responsible for differences in the levels of income between rich and poor. The president sees this naturally occurring income disparity as a pressing problem in need of intervention. He sees the nations wealth as a fixed amount with portions to be shared by all. To him, citizens who have earned a larger share of wealth have, in effect, caused other citizens to accept a smaller share by reducing the amount of wealth available to others. He justifies confiscating wealth from some and giving it to others as an issue of fairness. The president and his supporters in Congress dont appear to understand that wealth is not a limited commodity like gold or oil. Wealth is created by human efforts both physical and intellectual. National wealth grows or shrinks in proportion to the efforts of the people. A citizen who is encouraged to earn and accumulate great personal wealth increases the national wealth and confers benefits on all. He deprives none of the opportunity to accumulate wealth of their own. That increasing the wealth of the nation benefits all is quite evident from statistics on poverty. Because America has great national wealth, the 15 percent of our citizens we deem as living in poverty enjoy a standard of living higher than 90 percent of the people on Earth. They have more living space than do 50 percent of Europeans, and they own more homes, vehicles and electronic devices than do 40 percent of Europeans. Redistribution of wealth, as recommended by the president, whether by high taxes or by government control of the means of producing goods, has historically led to slower creation of national wealth and a lower standard of living for all but the governing class. The remainder of the citizens come to enjoy equality in poverty. The best any government can do for the well-being of its citizens is to provide an environment that enables individuals to earn personal wealth to the best of their abilities and to increase the national wealth for the benefit of all. Confiscating wealth through high taxes and redistributing it through government programs slows wealth creation and hurts the poorest among us most. Obamas use of class warfare rhetoric to support his proposals to achieve economic equality may well result in riots that disrupt civil society and create long-lasting hostilities. Neither fact nor historical precedents support the president. William Dixon is a graduate of Columbia University, New York Medical College and the USF College of Business Administration.

Dr. William Dixon OTHER VOICES Wealth is not a limited commodity M AUREENA RRIGALE AND E DNAM ATTOS Special to the ChronicleM ark Twain once wrote. God made idiots. This was for practice. Then He made School Boards. Things dont appear to have improved much since Mark Twains time. We have no problems with fair and equitable rules that are upheld across the board, but the issue with the Citrus County School Board is based on bias, hypocrisy, and political machination. From August 2010 to October 2011, the Nature Coast 912 communicated with the school board, and the board did not mention any issues. After the school board received a call from the St. Petersburg Times, they asked the Nature Coast 912 group to remove any references to their group, which was quickly agreed to. Just prior to distribution, the school board also asked for the back page to be removed without providing specific reasons. At the public meeting, the board stated, again without being specific, that the back page of the pocket Constitutions contained political and religious propaganda, which, according to their guidelines, is unacceptable. As board member Pat Deutschman mentioned in her guest column in the Chronicle the school board was not asked to take a vote on this issue. We considered it redundant to do so, since it was obvious that a decision had already been made. It was also very clear to many of us that this issue had been previously discussed by the board members prior to the public meeting. This was later corroborated in writing via email exchanges. According to school board member Thomas Kennedys explanation, the real reason for their decision to have the back page of the pamphlets removed was the fact that The 5000 Year Leap was written by a Mormon, the same Mormon who founded the National Center for Constitutional Studies. So now, in our opinion, we have the real reason why they would not allow this page to be included the author was a Mormon so it must be religious propaganda, and the book was promoted by the likes of Glenn Beck, so it must be political propaganda, too! Case closed! Well, not so fast Its probably accurate to state that the vast majority of writers practice some form of religion. Data on the framers of the Constitution also shows that these men practiced religion, they were either: Congregationalist/Protestants (7), Deist (1 not the same as Atheism), Dutch Reformed (2), Episcopal (25), Episcopal/Deist (1), Lutheran (1), Methodist (2), Presbyterian (9), Presbyterian/Deist (2), Quaker/Lutheran (1), Quaker/Episcopal (2), or Roman Catholic. These brilliant men gave us the U.S. Constitution. Using the boards own logic, we can now understand why they do not have an in-depth constitutional studies curriculum the framers of the U.S. Constitution were religious and political men, too. Instead, it is more appropriate to have Marxism and Humanism as the predominant philosophies in the education system that are being pushed to replace all religions, and that in the process are burying our national heritage. This Humanistic education is being blamed for fragmenting the family structure, and for eliminating individualism. When you send your children to public schools, you are sending your children into a politically sterile pagan society. The National Education Association monopoly is the reason why our children are brainwashed and arent taught historical facts. The NEA is, in our opinion, the closest non-governmental organization you can equate to the Communist Party; we feel they are anti-democratic, anti-Constitution and alien to our social and political structure. You also have the International Baccalaureate Programme, which defers to UNESCO and Agenda 21 international agendas sneaking their way into the educational system. Their goal, we believe, is to mould our children to become good global citizens where collectivism trumps out individualism. Add to this the policies of the American Civil Liberties Union, which we contend are anti-religion, and anti-Constitution. And let us not forget the Florida teachers union which uses our publicly funded local education system to spread union propaganda. Our educational system began to decline with the introduction of socialism, empowered by the increasing involvement of the federal government, unions and nongovernmental agencies. It is our belief that our schools are filled with revisionists theories, sex education, social justice, political correctness, union propaganda,antiChristianity, anti-Jews, antiIsrael, environmental extremism, falsehoods, white-washing of historical facts, global unity, diversity training (pro-gay indoctrination), and higher-order thinking skills boldly claiming that, in order to become a higher order thinker, one must first believe absolutely that there are no absolutes. Parents, innocently and unknowingly everyday send our most precious creation, our children, to be educated without ever questioning these stifling pro socialistic agendas. A Harvard professor of education and psychiatry once said: Every child in America entering school at the age of five is mentally ill because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our Founding Fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. Its up to you as a teacher to make all these sick children well by creating the international child of the future. Many citizens and experts across our nation agree that our educational system is broken. We can present statistics after statistics that support this. Trying to fix public education is like trying to teach a pig how to dance. You get dirty and the pig gets mad. The schools are failing our children and our society. Much of the blame falls at the feet of our government, and local boards that have set themselves up as the ultimate arbitrators and experts in deciding what our children should be taught without community and parental involvement. One of the reasons why public schools get away with perpetual educational failures, is because they are run by politicians and brainwashed, career-driven school officials who agree that government should control your childrens mind, values and future. All institutions that are publicly funded should get questioned when there is a crisis point and, we have reached this juncture today with school boards. Of course bureaucrats, politicians and educators try to blame parents, or lack of funds for the failure of our schools. Their predictable solutions are: We need more money, and more government control. Americans fall for this every time. Jefferson, in his statute for religious freedom penned in 1786, that to tax a man to promote the propagation of opinions with which he disagrees is both sinful and tyrannical ... The government shouldntbe involved in education at all. But since they do both, it is more important than ever that there is a balance in the instructional materials presented, and citizens must fight to make this happen. If this fails, then parents, you must take control of your childs education and protect the values you teach them by home schooling your kids, if possible, or enroll them in a low-cost Internet private school of your choice. The future of our children is at stake, as well as the future of our republic and our liberty. Government-controlled public education and their boards of education are the ones that have an agenda. All we want is for our children to be taught historical facts. We want an equitable balance. The inclusion of these referenced books would have been a step in the right direction. This is a decision that they can make. Instead of trying to mediate a workable solution, this board dug in their heels and tried to defend the indefensible, which proves that they are the ones that are more politically and religiously biased than anyone else. Maureen Arrigale is organizer with Nature Coast 912 and Edna Mattos is president of the Citrus County Tea Party Patriots. The future of our children is at stake Port voteEverybody knows this port is going to be a big joke, but it seems its going to be pushed down our throats just like Obamacare, whether we like it or not. Well, when election time comes, well just have to take care of business.Thanks, Dr. DixonThank you, Dr. Dixon, for a very insightful article about Herman Cain. I couldnt have said it better. Everything you said resounded with truth. I have felt the same way; that the media certainly enjoys trying to tell conservatives who they must vote for. I am sort of amused by it, but Im also angered by it. Everyone that I am attracted to, they decide to destroy. I was so bored with John McCains nomination and then Sarah Palin came on the screen, and, my husband can tell you, I sat straight up in my chair. I have been enjoying Herman Cain for a long time, as Ive heard him on the radio before I ever knew what color he was, of course, and I enjoy his views, I enjoy his policies, the 9-9-9. True colors seenWhen people ridicule the mentally challenged, crippled or disfigured, they are not only embarrassing and hurting these peoples feelings, they are showing the lowlife upbringing their parents gave them by making such rude and offensive remarks.Recycling pays The only time I would even consider recycling is if the state of Florida passes a bottle bill. That works in other states. Its been successful for years and it pays to recycle.Cain knows Sundays Sound Off (Oct. 23) about Herman Cains 9-9-9 that goes on top of the income tax. Herman Cain worked for the Kansas City Federal Reserve. He was on the board of the Federal Reserve. Hes an insider. Anybody (who) votes for anybody other than Herman Cain is just going to get more of the same; its just going to be a little different flavor. If you dont vote for Ron Paul to get rid of the income tax, to try to straighten this economy up and get these globalist bankers out of politics where theyre buying their candidates, its never going to get fixed. Were going to be in the crapper til the cows come home. Wake up, America. Nature blocking viewI went to that there event yesterday at the Three Sisters Springs. It was real nice, but the only thing is, I think they wasted 1,000 feet of boardwalk because you cant see nothing for the trees and the bushes.Visitation center fundingIm reading in the paper the county wants to stop the visitation (center for) father, mother and children. There is no money, but yet the county seems to have the money to look at a Port Citrus. I think its time for a change in politicians. S OUND OFF CALL 563-0579

Thanks, Mike I would like to project my gratitude for the considerable coverage afforded to my wife, Marion Knudsen, upon her death. Mike Wright is a very good friend of Marion. His articles captured the very essence of her lifes work and personality. Thank you, Mike. It was perfect. Harold F. Knudsen Homosassa Springs Legislative blunder While I dont disagree with the philosophy behind drug testing people who are getting state aid, I strongly support Judge Scrivens ruling to suspend drug testing of current recipients of public aid. The governor and our Legislature, who say they support the rule of law, should have known that a law that imposes such restrictions on a whole class of people without probable cause or reasonable suspicion would be found unconstitutional. This is another example of how this administration is overreaching, wasting its time and wasting our money; shame on you! How many more laws passed by this administration are still under legal challenge? This government needs to get its act together or it will be voted out. Lynn Dostal Homosassa Sales taxs contextMr. Ron LaChances comments regarding Herman Cains 9-9-9 plan for tax revision were flawed in that he only addressed the impact of the national sales tax. In his analysis he failed to consider the savings that each individual will have with the reduction of their income tax rates. Additionally, the significant corporate tax reduction will reduce the price of goods to the consumer. I believe that this plan has its flaws and is in need of revisions, specifically with regards to those at the lowest income levels; however, Mr. Cains basic premise is correct our current income tax system is broken. While chances of Mr. Cains 9-9-9 plan ever being enacted are extremely small, it will hopefully be a starting point for real discussions on how the current income tax system can be revised. Federal taxes are to be collected for the purpose of operating the federal government. This is no longer the case, and hasnt been for many decades. The current federal income tax system has become a tool for social engineering, political paybacks, and de facto welfare payments. Deductions and exemptions have been created to encourage or force individuals and businesses to engage in various behaviors. The laws related to these deductions and exemptions are part of a document that has become so complex, those charged with enforcing it have no idea what it says. President Obama created a commission to analyze and recommend ways to reduce our debt and find means to reduce or eliminate the annual deficits. One of their recommendations was to simplify the tax code by eliminating most exemptions and deductions, while at the same time reducing tax rates. It is time that both the president and Congress listen to these recommendations or find a viable alternative. On the same day a column by Mr. Donald Lambro addressed the inability of the supercommittee to find ways to reduce the deficit. Mr. Lambros comments are dead on target. Its time that the president and Congress eliminate those agencies that serve no purpose but to enlarge the ranks of those employed by the federal government. Rick Moorbeck Inverness Opinion, obligation The recent guest column by Edna Mattos and Maureen Arrigale has prompted me to make a few observations and thoughts. The issue was well stated; the school board has a responsibility to try to ensure that no religious or political material is intentionally introduced to the students. In their opinion as our constitutionally elected officials, the material provided with the copies of the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution by Mattos/Arrigale organizations were not in compliance with the existing rules. The material had added references that the board felt violated the political and/or religious restrictions. The writers of the article went to great lengths to explain why their list of material was just for reference and not political. Unfortunately, that is just their opinion, and not that of many other people in the county with a different viewpoint. I believe that the responsibility for what is taught in school is up to the elected board, not to individual groups and their agendas. If they feel otherwise, they need to go through the court system for a final decision. It seems that recently many are claiming to be protecting the Constitution. People in this country have been protecting the U.S. Constitution for years quietly and effectively. I served four years in the U.S. Air Force because that was what was expected of young males at the time. I served 38 years in law enforcement protecting the Constitution, even though I often disagreed with the courts interpretations. After the assignation of President John F. Kennedy, I watched as 60-plus B-47s were loaded with nuclear weapons ready for launch at any point and realizing we were only one base. This all done to protect the U.S. Constitution. I am still concerned about protecting the Constitution, in particular from radical groups that try to use their purported concern for our Bill of Rights and Constitution to further their own ideals, which often conflict with the beliefs and desires of other Americans. Roger B. Krieger Beverly Hills Corporate problem After reading Mr. Milans letter to the editor on corporate prosperity, I realized we finally have in Citrus County, a learned expert on Wall Street, Americas corporations, and our financial and economic systems. Im sure he is directing the powers in Washington in solving our national dilemma that has occurred only since January 2010. Its nice to know that our corporations in general are not a large part of the problem, even though they oppose wage increases in spite of inflation; oppose unions whose purpose is to assist in maintaining reasonable working conditions and wages; continue to relocate elsewhere; replace older workers in order to hire younger workers for less wages; insist that federal, state and county governments reduce their staffs in favor of more expensive contract services; are more concerned about profit and stockholders earnings than employees benefits; are a part of the unemployment crisis; and are reluctant to make capital investments within the United States. Yes, corporations do include those lightly regulated banks and other financial entities that have caused our housing bubble problem and our near economic collapse. Our problem is with corporations, and it didnt start in 2010, and it cannot be solved with having only Republicans in power. Our basic problem is that corporations have the power and money to buy our Republicans and Democrats in Congress, and theyve been doing it for years. Our corporations are behind every piece of legislation signed by every president, governor and county commission that might affect their way of operation and/or their profit. Our local, state and federal legislators speak for the corporations, not for you or me, whether it be continuing our wars or providing essential education to our children. Frances Harbin Homosassa ACLUs involvementRegarding the Oct. 24 letter from Mr. Roger Dobronyi stating that the ACLU is apolitical: I would like to know just how many times the ACLU has joined in in defense of someones rights under the Second Amendment. Byron W. Davis Inverness Spivey slighted Saturdays event to celebrate the construction of the boardwalk at Three Sisters Springs was a thundering success. At its peak there were probably more than a thousand people at the springs. Attendance exceeded, by some considerable margin, the most optimistic hopes of the organizers. Around midday, the tape was cut by the usual dignitaries wielding the customary oversized scissors. Everyone was sharing in the collective euphoria of the moment. However, where was Helen Spivey during this ceremony? Was she standing with the aforementioned dignitaries? No, she was not invited to be part of the action, and this was a shameful oversight of some severity. Whose name is most readily associated with any effort aimed at manatee protection? Who is the longtime co-chair of the Save the Manatee Club? Who has been the local voice and advocate of the manatees for more than 25 years? Working one of the many booths, I was embarrassed to be volunteering my time while Ms. Spivey was so visibly, and I sincerely hope not deliberately, ignored and insulted. Theodora C. Rusnak Hernando Jobs for troops On April 21, our president reported that all our 48,000 Iraqi occupation troops would be back home by the end of this year. The news could not be better. Most Americans and most Iraqis opposed our 2001 invasion, regret the loss of lives of citizens of both countries, and the many billions of dollars severely affecting our economy. We must now look forward to fully and gratefully supporting those returning troops as well as those who have been rotated back or returned because of disabilities incurred. Jobs, education and medical expenses must be provided them as well as our citizens who are currently unemployed. Our legislators in Washington are filibustering the Jobs Bill before them, refusing to even vote on it. It is imperative that we demand our legislators quickly agree on a jobs bill ready well before the end of 2011 to provide for this urgent need. You can call, free of charge, the Washington office of Sen. Bill Nelson, Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Richard Nugent at (877) 264-4226. George Harbin Homosassa Planning ideas After reading about the Crystal River land-use proposals, I thought about some of the rules that might apply. Zoning studies need to create usable commercial areas; put business where business belongs with site dimensions of adequate size. Develop a landscape code that does not stifle design creativity. Put land planners in charge of land planning; not zoning officers. Re-examine linear commercial corridors of inadequate depth and width left over from the highway planning of the 1960s. Use aggregate density calculations to govern saturation of land-use patterns and intensity of use. Select critical sites for genius loci or sense of place (sculpture, gardens, explanatory signage). Develop a strong coordinated graphics program to reduce signage explosion (under way). Build a design awards program consistently recognizing projects that contribute to the community (in place). Put in place a visual resource management and view shed management program that respects the legal rights of current landowners while encouraging the right project at the right place or no project at all. Develop and implement a uniform docks and moorings law for waterfront protection (under way). Capitalize on the future land mass to water body interface. Buffer incompatible land uses, but do not waste dollars on land uses that may be complementary.Ernest Paskey Retired professor of urban planning Lecanto Sell bonds Is it time for Progress Energy customers to protest? Our states wonderful Public Service Commission has approved an increase in our power bills to aid in new construction of power generation facilities. How many seniors are going to have to pay for something they never will live long enough to benefit from? Why cant Progress do as other utility companies have done in previous years and sell bonds for their improvements improvements that will benefit them more than their customers. I for one am mad as hell. They shouldnt get a darn penny extra, after the fiasco pulled at the Crystal River nuke plant.

They go to the bathroom in my garden and they kill the birds that I feed. Does anyone have any suggestions? Ive tried mothballs and cayenne pepper and it hasnt worked. Im getting very angry at the amount of cats that roam free in the downtown Inverness area.Find another bank Heres a thought to all you crybabies complaining about the banks debit card fees and the minimum on your checking accounts: Take your money out of that bank. Go find another one. They cant all do it forever. Put it in a pickle jar. Eden and 41 A retort to Ghost drivers: You think the lights over on (County Road) 486 and the entrance of Pine Ridge are bad? You need to come look at the lights at Eden Drive and (U.S.) 41. Those lights are the most outrageous lights Ive ever seen in my life. There is no left-hand turn dropout, you know, for oncoming traffic to turn left, only yields. Those lights change without anybody being at any intersection at any time. Supporting CainCains slogans not enough? The reporter at least should have the decency to point out that Cain clearly worked diligently during his career. He demonstrated great talent for management problems, managerial problem solving. He knows how to motivate employees. Guess what? Were looking for an honest guy like Cain and Im not ashamed to say Im on the Cain trail.Trade imbalanceWhile China gets rich with the exports to the USA, the protesters by the way, some of them dont know what the heck theyre protesting protest the profits that Wall Street generates. The protesters should be expressing their outrage about the imbalance of goods from China. Stop this outrage with the balance, this crazy balance and by the way, China has a $50 billion overage in exports and see how quickly jobs will generate. And then the protesters wont have a heck of a lot more to protest about. Stop the imbalance of trade between China and the USA. Companions a comfortThere is a wonderful article in todays paper, Monday (Oct. 17), about Senior Companions. That is a wonderful organization. I can tell you for sure because I have one. I do not know what I would do without her and she has become a very dear friend. Thank you for the Senior Companion program.Chicken and egg These people who are witnessing some of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations and then saying, Why dont they stop this and just go get a job? These people must be living in some kind of bubble. If there were jobs, there would be less reasons to demonstrate. ACLUs ethos I disagree that the American Civil Liberties Union is a political organization, as writers (Edna) Mattos and (Maureen) Arrigale claim. They file lawsuits, but I wouldnt call that exactly political. Theyll defend opposite sides, actually, on an issueif they feel their rights are being violated according to the Constitution. So Id lay off the AmericanCi vil Liberties Union. We need themas big watchdogs in our country.Dismantle EPAIt seems the EPA does more harm to jobs in this country than Obama does. We need to get rid of both of them.Asking for disaster Its amazing that people are trying to piece together what went wrong with the race down at Las Vegas where Dan Wheldon lost his life. Its not rocket science, but when youve got cars doing 225 mph, openwheel racing, two and three abreast on a track that was built for NASCAR, it isnt any surprise what happened. The wheels arent protected and all you have to do is hit wheel to wheel and somebodys going airborne, which is what happened. And at that speed, your reaction time is practically zero. You drive by instinct. You dont sit and use a process of thinking what you should do next. This has got to change or this is the beginning of the end of open-wheel racing. Formula 1 doesnt have any of the problems like that because theyre not going in a circle 225 mph, around and around and around, for a couple hours.Riders law The Florida bike law section 316.2065, a section of the Florida bike law, states: A person propelling a bicycle along a sidewalk or across a roadway or on a long crosswalk shall yield the right of way to any pedestrian. So bikers who have to bike where pedestrians walk, be forewarned. You can be sued if you hit someone.Fly on the wall This past week, TV national news announcers commented four presidential candidates showed a call from God to run for election.

CD options puzzle reader D EAR BRUCE: I am 84 years old and have two CDs worth about $230,000. I have my three adult children registered as equal principal beneficiaries. What are their options upon my demise? Can their shares be rolled over into their IRAs, and the required minimum withdrawal be based upon their reaching 70 1/2? Or must their withdrawal be based on my age? Is there a time limit for them to withdraw their shares? Where can I find an explanation of such benefits? F.D., via email DEAR F.D.: Im assuming that your $230,000 is in some type of tax-sheltered environment: IRA, 401(k), 403(b), etc. There are various regulations with regard to how such money has to be distributed taxes paid, etc. Failing that, if these are just ordinary CDs and they have your childrens names on them and have been properly set up (payable on death or something similar), the money will be split three ways upon your demise and taxes, if any, will have to be paid. The attorney advising the executor of your estate can determine precisely what your childrens rights are. Without the specifics of this money and perhaps other monies that are in your name, it is difficult to give a very specific answer. The research involved and the costs should be minimal. I would do this immediately. Its much easier for you to straighten out problems now than it will be for your estate after your demise. DEAR BRUCE: I have an opportunity to collect two full pensions on my 55th birthday. I am now 49. 1) What do you think about forgoing the spousal survivor benefit and compensating with a term life insurance policy with my wife as the beneficiary? 2) Is there a rule-of-thumb formula to determine how much money to insure myself for? The total pension will be a minimum of $4,200 per month, without the spousal survivor benefit, and the mortgage will be paid off on the same date. My annuity will provide around $300,000, but we will have to purchase our own health insurance. Thank you. D.P ., via email DEAR D.P .: I would elect to go with the insurance. Buying the insurance now at age 49 would give you a lower premium, even though the net cost would be higher. You will be developing some cash value in the policy, but more important is that you have no way of knowing whether you will be insurable six years from now. If you are insurable now and you wish to pursue this, consider taking out the insurance and guaranteeing the availability. Send your questions to: Smart Money, P .O. Box 7150, Hudson, FL 34674.

U.S. residents have bee n making a little more money, but spending a lot more. U.S. residents buying more even with income almost flat Associated PressWASHINGTON Americans are making a little more money and spending a lot more. Under normal circumstances, that would be a troubling sign for the economy. But a closer look at some new government figures suggests another possibility: People are saving less money because theyre earning next to nothing in interest. Saving is already difficult because of more expensive gas and food. Its even tougher because of the lower returns the flip side of super-low interest rates that the Federal Reserve has kept in place since 2008 to help the economy. Critics say the Fed is punishing those who play by the rules those careful enough to set aside money for savings or people who built up a nest egg and are living on fixed incomes that depend on interest. Americans spent 0.6 percent more in September, three times the increase from the previous month, the government said Friday. Spending was especially strong on durable goods things like cars, appliances and electronics. At the same time, what they earned was mostly flat. Pay increased 0.3 percent, and overall income just 0.1 percent. After deducting taxes and adjusting for inflation, income fell for a third straight month. So to make up the difference, many have cut back on savings. The savings rate fell to its lowest level since December 2007, the first month of the recession and right about the time the Fed started its dramatic series of interest-rate cuts. Considering how little you can get for parking your money at a bank, it hasnt been a tough choice. Consumers have hit a level of saturation in their savings, said Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst with market research firm The NPD Group. The propensity is to spend. The annual yield on six-month certificates of deposit was unchanged this week at 0.23 percent, according to Bankrate.com. Five years ago, it was 3.62 percent. If you put your money in the six-month CD today, youd make about enough to buy a burger. Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, said the trend could mean more spending by Americans. But it will take robust personal spending along with improvement in the depressed housing market to get the economy going again. Ashworth said his firm is not too concerned with the decline in savings because it partly represents a sharp decline in debt servicing costs. In other words, low interest rates mean its cheaper to borrow money. The Fed began cutting interest rates four years ago at the start of the financial crisis. The rate cuts took the federal funds rate, the key for short-term interest rates, from 5.25 percent down to near zero, where they have stayed since December 2008. The central bank has said it will keep rates super-low into 2013 as long as the economy stays weak. While that means low returns for savers, it is designed to encourage people and businesses to borrow more. Many borrowers tend to be young families spending most of their income anyway. The loss in interest income tends to hit older households, which are saving for retirement and counting more on bonds and other fixed-income securities. Consumer spending is closely watched because it accounts for about 70 percent of economic activity. A sharp rise in spending over the summer helped the overall economy grow in July, August and September at the fastest pace in a year. Still, the economy would have to grow twice as fast to put a dent in the unemployment rate, which has stayed near 9 percent since the recession officially ended more than two years ago. At the same time savings accounts and other fixed-income investments are paying less, the cost of food and gas has gone up. Elizabeth Smith, who works in teacher education at the University of Arkansas, has cut her monthly contribution to her retirement savings in half to meet necessities. Every time I go to the store, butter, cheese and milk are more expensive, she said. Child care costs for her two children have also risen this year. On the other hand, Smith has benefited from lower interest rates. She and her husband refinanced the mortgage on her home a year ago. The Feds policies are designed to reward spending and effectively punish savers, said Eric Green, chief U.S. economist at TD Securities. Citrus County Chronicle gets new press N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Faster, better, more reliable once the fine-tuning is complete. Without missing a single days newspaper printing (although electrical problems delayed delivery of Saturdays edition), the Chronicle has recently installed new press equipment, increasing the capacity to print color pages, from eight pages to 18 in a single press run. What does that mean to you, the reader? Some of the benefits will be invisible to our customers, but mainly what they will see is a more consistent quality newspaper, better registration and better color reproduction and if our advertisers will support it theyll see more color photos in the paper, said Tom Feeney, Chronicle production director. Plus, it will reduce press waste, and that should reduce our footprint at the landfill. The press the Chronicle had been using had had problems with registration and one of the color towers needed a complete rebuild that would cost $100,000. The Dauphin Graphics 430 press runs 30,000 papers per hour. The entire system moved from the press room to its new destination in the building addition adjacent to the Chronicle plant and facility in Crystal River, built three years ago. In addition to expanding the color capacity, this new equipment doubles the presss horsepower from 250 to 500. That means we can have three of our motors burn out on us and still get the paper out, Feeney said. With the color capacity that we have, we could lose power and it wouldnt affect us at all. According to Chronicle Publisher Gerry Mulligan, We are expanding our press line to improve the quality of our product and the efficiency of our process. We might be one of the only businesses in Citrus County that is currently reinvesting capital dollars to prepare for the future. The Chronicle is longestoperating business in Citrus County. The newspaper began publishing inAugust of 1894. Mulligan added, we are expanding our production capabilities because we have confidencethat our local and national economies will improve and we want to be positioned to better serve customers. Chronicle Pressmen Terry Murray, left, and Thomas Favot work at the new press array at the Chronicle plant. Delays may occur as staff fine-tune the system, now twice the size of the previous press array.

volunteers violates any union contracts. You really should have this thought out before the people show up at your door, he said. Some volunteers have gardening and landscaping skills to share. Others simply see value in green spaces and want to help maintain them, he said. In some of the cases, the people are associated with civic groups that keep an eye out for things they can do for the community, he said. Civic groups and businesses were eager to assist when officials in Cobb County, Ga., asked for help maintaining landscaped gateways along the county borders, said Jonathan Jenkins, director of the countys solid waste department. Volunteers plant flowers and pick up trash. Their efforts make Cobb County look good without county money going out of our pocket, he said. The Virginia Department of Transportation last year asked residents for help mowing the grass along state roadways after its mowing budget was slashed from $32,000 to $18,000. Twentythree volunteers signed up, said department spokeswoman Shannon Marshall. And when the Seattle Public Library asked for help this summer with outdoor maintenance, many answered the call. Liz Morris was one; she spent about six hours raking and weeding at two library branches. Morris, who lives in an apartment, said she enjoyed being outside doing yard work. She also liked that she was helping the library, which has cut nearly $5 million from its operating budget since 2009. Any way I can support them in delivering services that I value as relevant to our community seems like a great opportunity to me, she said. Volunteers have made all the difference at New Orleans City Park, which was seriously damaged by Hurricane Katrina. The 1,300-acre park now operates with 85 employees, down from 115 before the storm, and holds monthly work sessions for volunteers. They have planted trees, created flower beds and are even constructing a miniature golf course. Volunteers are the lifeblood of the park, said Steve Ryman, City Parks volunteer manager. The Friends of the San Jose Rose Garden also have done great work, said Mollie Tobias, the citys volunteer coordinator. The garden was named Americas Best Rose Garden after the organization started tending the bushes. The groups efforts convinced the city to expand its volunteer opportunities, Tobias said. San Jose began organizing regular work days for volunteers to spruce up playgrounds, pick up trash and plant flowers. The number of work days has grown from 40 in 2008 to 81 in 2010. People know the parks just cant do it on their own, Tobias said. Their contributions are priceless.

F or me and many arborists around the world, being a professional is a passion and a dedicated commitment to the industry. It is a pleasure to serve the people of our beautiful nature coast county. I became a member of the International Society of Arboriculture about 20 years ago. Being a member of ISA, I have been able to advance my career through professional development and an extensive network of colleagues. By pairing my profession with my ISA membership, I have access to information and resources to help me navigate the world of arboriculture. I have grown in my technical knowledge about topics like tree care, pest management, strategies and safety standards.

M any attractive plants can be grown in Florida gardens; however, three cause contact dermatitis. Poison ivy,Toxicodendron radicans;poison oak, T. toxicarium; and poison sumac, T. vernixcontain urushiol oil that triggers allergic reactions. Urushiol is also found in Poisonwood, Metopium toxiferum,a South Florida tropical tree. All are in the Cashew family Anacardiaceae. Poison oak and sumac grow from Marion and Levy counties northward. Poison ivy grows throughout Florida. Habitats include sandy uplands, forests, The Keys, wetlands and gardens. Compound leaves are alternate on reddish stems. The three ovate leaflets can be smooth, lobed and/or toothed on one edge or both. Leaf size can be just over an inch to a foot long and up to six inches wide. Tips of leaflets taper to a point. The top leaflet may have a short stalk. Tops of leaves are dark green, while the undersides are lighter. Deciduous leaves turn orange in late fall.

We carefully removed pieces of poison ivy and placed all debris in large flowerpots. We knew the chainsaw had urushiol oil on it so thoroughly swabbed it with gasoline when the job was done. After placing a dozen pots of brush in the trailer for disposal, we removed our protective clothing and washed our hands well. Urushiol can take ten minutes or more to penetrate thin skin or up to an hour or two to bind to thicker skin. During initial contact, there is a short window of time to wash off the oil with soap and water. Oil may get on tires, shoes, laces, clothing, seats, couches and bedding if the person does not change their clothing and wash everything well. Once the oil binds to the skin, it cannot be washed away with soap and water. Two days later, a bubbly rash appeared between my fingers. The itching was worse than fire ant bites. The rash spread onto the palms of my hands. I headed for the pharmacy in search of advice and relief. Over-the-counter anti-itch creams briefly soothed the itching. A crew member also had poison ivy rash on his forearm and cheek. His dad was a career treeman with experience treating the rash with calamine lotion. Neither cured or relieved the spreading rash. At Citrus County Health Department, Dr. Primis recommended Zanfel, a new over-the-counter cream that had recently become available. Zanfel surrounds the urushiol and bonds with it so the oil can be washed away. It contains an abrasive to thoroughly clean skin and reach the oil. The one-ounce tube contains 15 applications with a shelf life of 10 years. Cost is less than $40 a tube. I wet my hands, squeezed out an inch and a half of cream and lathered it over rash-covered hands. Thirty seconds later the itching abruptly stopped! After a minute I rinsed under the tap. The bubbles and blisters were still there. An hour later the redness began to disappear and the blisters subsided. Next morning, the small bubbles were gone. There was no redness and absolutely no itching. The offending urushiol had been removed from the skin by the new cream. Magic. In three days only the biggest blisters were left to be absorbed. Days later I noticed small patches of new bubbles on my left hand. Somehow I had recontaminated myself. I lathered up again and also swabbed the van steering wheel to remove suspected oil, then washed it with soap and water and dried with disposable paper towels. The re-contamination problem was solved. Nationwide pharmacies now carry this new poison ivy treatment. Gardeners are relieved. Jane Weber is a professional gardener and nursery owner.

I have been told it would have probably been red and white glass beads. I would appreciate hearing from you and any information you might have. D.G., Internet Dear D.G.: I think your figural monkey lamp is a reproduction made within the past 50 years. During the 19th century, there was a group of French sculptors called the Animaliers who produced art bronzes representing both domestic and wild animals. Due to collecting interest in these art bronzes, reproductions have been produced in large quantities. Potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. Dear John: You may get a lot of these letters every day. But I would like to share this with you. My mother recently passed away. She was 85 years young. She left me an old painting of Miss Willoughby by George Romney. It has been passed down through generations. I look online and see the replicas going for $319 and so on. The painting I have is old. The painting that I have may actually be the original, not a replica. I am enclosing a photo of it. J.M., Internet Dear J.M.: The English artist George Romney, 1734-1802, is widely recognized in the antiques art market. The original painting, titled Portrait of Miss Juliana Willoughby, is currently on exhibit at the National Gallery of Art. There were numerous artists making copies of his works from the late 18th and on through the 19th century. There are even larger quantities of printed copies of his works that are over 100 years old. If your picture is a print, there is very little dollar value, even if it is 100 years old. Take a hand magnifier and look closely at the detail. If you observe a tiny uniform dot pattern, it is a commercial grade print made in the 20th century. In your photograph it looks like the picture is a print, rather than a pastiche or copy.

After several seasons of neglect, local rose enthusiasts Beverly Rose Hopper and Terry Reilly stepped in to save the garden, which dates to 1932. It was a disgrace, Hopper recalled. It was time to either fix it or bulldoze it. They rallied volunteers and assigned them work days. In 2007, they created the Friends of the San Jose Rose Garden, dedicated to maintaining and improving the garden. Budget cuts in recent years have led a growing number of volunteers to pitch in and help cities, counties and states maintain public parks, green spaces and gardens, said Bill Beckner, a research manager with the National Recreation and Park Association in Ashburn, Va. He cautioned that local governments and others who enlist volunteers must address liability issues, develop job descriptions and training programs, and determine whether using Volunteer gardeners fill gap in era of tight budgets See GARDENS / Page E11 Citizens want to keep their communities beautiful Associated Press Volunteer Betsy Collins prunes a rose bush on Oct. 21 at the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden in San Jose, Calif.

I enjoy antiques and like to learn about other peoples collections and prized possessions. It is for one of my own possessions that I am writing today. I am generally pretty good with antiques and can find most of my stuff with the stroke of a key or by flipping through the pages of a magazine. However, I have been unable to find anything on a lamp that sat in my grandparents house. The lamp looks to be Deco, though it could be early modern. It is a floor lamp that stands about four feet tall and seems to be made out of cement. The lamp is decorated with a sea and fish scene, and the fish have holes in the body and outlining them so that the light shines through colored plastic in the holes and lights up the fish so that they glow in neon colors. The lamp was pristine until last year when my nieces and nephews knocked it over and shattered it. I have done my best to piece it back together, but as I said, it is cement and does not bond well. I was told by a friend who does ceramic and porcelain repair that her techniques would not work on cement, so I was wondering if you had any suggestions for repairing it or might possibly be able to tell me anything about it that could help lead to me finding a replacement. I am attaching several pictures. I would appreciate your help. C., Internet Dear C.: Wow, man, really cool, as they might have said in the 1960s or s era the time your lamp was most likely made. It is not Art Deco. In the photographs, it looks like the lamp is made of a ceramic, perhaps a heavy Plaster of Paris or similar. To get the lamp restored, contact Leak Enterprises in Belleview at (352) 245-8862. Dear John: I am interested in any information you might have about my monkey lamp, including where it might be from Europe, I think, but I do not know what country, how old it is, what its worth, or anything about the maker. The lamp is brass and has a small bulb under the shade. The eyes light up and are F rom the peculiar chatter of baby swifts in a chimney to the awe-inspiring sight of birds entering their roost at dusk, like smoke swirling back into the flue, chimney swifts (Chaetura pelagica) have captured the imagination of many bird enthusiasts over the years. Unlike brightly colored birds found at a backyard feeder, chimney swifts are averagesized, uniformly dark in color and look like flying cigars with long, slender curved wings. What is even more curious about these swallow-like birds is that they appear to beat their wings not in unison, but alternately, which gives them a bat-like appearance. Chimney swifts are unable to perch like other birds or walk on the ground, and must cling to the sides of trees or other rough surfaces when not flying. So what is there to like about this plain-looking bird? Chimney swifts live on the wing, foraging in flight, eating flying insects lots of insects! These birds are very beneficial because of their voracious appetite for insects, especially mosquitoes. Although the sound of chimney swifts is not music to everyones ears, they are extremely beneficial. Two parents and their noisy offspring will consume more than 12,000 flying insect pests every day. These include small pests such as mosquitoes, gnats, termites and biting flies. Unfortunately, chimney swift numbers are in decline due to loss of habitat first, large hollow trees, and now open masonry chimneys. The good news is more chimney swifts mean fewer flying pests! An interesting fact about chimney swifts is that they are monogamous birds that mate after aerial courtship displays. Both parents will incubate a brood of 3 to 7 eggs for 19 to 21 days, and after hatching, they both continue to feed the young for 30 days until the young birds are ready to fly out of the chimney for the first time. A mated pair will only raise one brood per year, but they may have nest helpers with other adult birds assisting with incubation and caring for the demanding hatchlings. Like all swifts and swallows, these are not frequent backyard birds, but chimney swifts can be encouraged to visit an area. Leaving tall, hollow trees in place also provides roosting spots, and avoiding the use of pesticides for flying insects ensures these birds have a ready food source. Chimney swift towers are also an effective method of attracting these beneficial birds. Since swifts have come to rely on the insides of chimneys as their primary nesting and roosting sites, having artificial chimneys will help conserve this species.

I enjoy antiques and like to learn about other peoples collections and prized possessions. It is for one of my own possessions that I am writing today. I am generally pretty good with antiques and can find most of my stuff with the stroke of a key or by flipping through the pages of a magazine. However, I have been unable to find anything on a lamp that sat in my grandparents house. The lamp looks to be Deco, though it could be early modern. It is a floor lamp that stands about four feet tall and seems to be made out of cement. The lamp is decorated with a sea and fish scene, and the fish have holes in the body and outlining them so that the light shines through colored plastic in the holes and lights up the fish so that they glow in neon colors. The lamp was pristine until last year when my nieces and nephews knocked it over and shattered it. I have done my best to piece it back together, but as I said, it is cement and does not bond well. I was told by a friend who does ceramic and porcelain repair that her techniques would not work on cement, so I was wondering if you had any suggestions for repairing it or might possibly be able to tell me anything about it that could help lead to me finding a replacement. I am attaching several pictures. I would appreciate your help. C., Internet Dear C.: Wow, man, really cool, as they might have said in the 1960s or s era the time your lamp was most likely made. It is not Art Deco. In the photographs, it looks like the lamp is made of a ceramic, perhaps a heavy Plaster of Paris or similar. To get the lamp restored, contact Leak Enterprises in Belleview at (352) 245-8862. Dear John: I am interested in any information you might have about my monkey lamp, including where it might be from Europe, I think, but I do not know what country, how old it is, what its worth, or anything about the maker. The lamp is brass and has a small bulb under the shade. The eyes light up and are F rom the peculiar chatter of baby swifts in a chimney to the awe-inspiring sight of birds entering their roost at dusk, like smoke swirling back into the flue, chimney swifts (Chaetura pelagica) have captured the imagination of many bird enthusiasts over the years. Unlike brightly colored birds found at a backyard feeder, chimney swifts are averagesized, uniformly dark in color and look like flying cigars with long, slender curved wings. What is even more curious about these swallow-like birds is that they appear to beat their wings not in unison, but alternately, which gives them a bat-like appearance. Chimney swifts are unable to perch like other birds or walk on the ground, and must cling to the sides of trees or other rough surfaces when not flying. So what is there to like about this plain-looking bird? Chimney swifts live on the wing, foraging in flight, eating flying insects lots of insects! These birds are very beneficial because of their voracious appetite for insects, especially mosquitoes. Although the sound of chimney swifts is not music to everyones ears, they are extremely beneficial. Two parents and their noisy offspring will consume more than 12,000 flying insect pests every day. These include small pests such as mosquitoes, gnats, termites and biting flies. Unfortunately, chimney swift numbers are in decline due to loss of habitat first, large hollow trees, and now open masonry chimneys. The good news is more chimney swifts mean fewer flying pests! An interesting fact about chimney swifts is that they are monogamous birds that mate after aerial courtship displays. Both parents will incubate a brood of 3 to 7 eggs for 19 to 21 days, and after hatching, they both continue to feed the young for 30 days until the young birds are ready to fly out of the chimney for the first time. A mated pair will only raise one brood per year, but they may have nest helpers with other adult birds assisting with incubation and caring for the demanding hatchlings. Like all swifts and swallows, these are not frequent backyard birds, but chimney swifts can be encouraged to visit an area. Leaving tall, hollow trees in place also provides roosting spots, and avoiding the use of pesticides for flying insects ensures these birds have a ready food source. Chimney swift towers are also an effective method of attracting these beneficial birds. Since swifts have come to rely on the insides of chimneys as their primary nesting and roosting sites, having artificial chimneys will help conserve this species.

M any attractive plants can be grown in Florida gardens; however, three cause contact dermatitis. Poison ivy,Toxicodendron radicans;poison oak, T. toxicarium; and poison sumac, T. vernixcontain urushiol oil that triggers allergic reactions. Urushiol is also found in Poisonwood, Metopium toxiferum,a South Florida tropical tree. All are in the Cashew family Anacardiaceae. Poison oak and sumac grow from Marion and Levy counties northward. Poison ivy grows throughout Florida. Habitats include sandy uplands, forests, The Keys, wetlands and gardens. Compound leaves are alternate on reddish stems. The three ovate leaflets can be smooth, lobed and/or toothed on one edge or both. Leaf size can be just over an inch to a foot long and up to six inches wide. Tips of leaflets taper to a point. The top leaflet may have a short stalk. Tops of leaves are dark green, while the undersides are lighter. Deciduous leaves turn orange in late fall.

We carefully removed pieces of poison ivy and placed all debris in large flowerpots. We knew the chainsaw had urushiol oil on it so thoroughly swabbed it with gasoline when the job was done. After placing a dozen pots of brush in the trailer for disposal, we removed our protective clothing and washed our hands well. Urushiol can take ten minutes or more to penetrate thin skin or up to an hour or two to bind to thicker skin. During initial contact, there is a short window of time to wash off the oil with soap and water. Oil may get on tires, shoes, laces, clothing, seats, couches and bedding if the person does not change their clothing and wash everything well. Once the oil binds to the skin, it cannot be washed away with soap and water. Two days later, a bubbly rash appeared between my fingers. The itching was worse than fire ant bites. The rash spread onto the palms of my hands. I headed for the pharmacy in search of advice and relief. Over-the-counter anti-itch creams briefly soothed the itching. A crew member also had poison ivy rash on his forearm and cheek. His dad was a career treeman with experience treating the rash with calamine lotion. Neither cured or relieved the spreading rash. At Citrus County Health Department, Dr. Primis recommended Zanfel, a new over-the-counter cream that had recently become available. Zanfel surrounds the urushiol and bonds with it so the oil can be washed away. It contains an abrasive to thoroughly clean skin and reach the oil. The one-ounce tube contains 15 applications with a shelf life of 10 years. Cost is less than $40 a tube. I wet my hands, squeezed out an inch and a half of cream and lathered it over rash-covered hands. Thirty seconds later the itching abruptly stopped! After a minute I rinsed under the tap. The bubbles and blisters were still there. An hour later the redness began to disappear and the blisters subsided. Next morning, the small bubbles were gone. There was no redness and absolutely no itching. The offending urushiol had been removed from the skin by the new cream. Magic. In three days only the biggest blisters were left to be absorbed. Days later I noticed small patches of new bubbles on my left hand. Somehow I had recontaminated myself. I lathered up again and also swabbed the van steering wheel to remove suspected oil, then washed it with soap and water and dried with disposable paper towels. The re-contamination problem was solved. Nationwide pharmacies now carry this new poison ivy treatment. Gardeners are relieved. Jane Weber is a professional gardener and nursery owner.

I have been told it would have probably been red and white glass beads. I would appreciate hearing from you and any information you might have. D.G., Internet Dear D.G.: I think your figural monkey lamp is a reproduction made within the past 50 years. During the 19th century, there was a group of French sculptors called the Animaliers who produced art bronzes representing both domestic and wild animals. Due to collecting interest in these art bronzes, reproductions have been produced in large quantities. Potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. Dear John: You may get a lot of these letters every day. But I would like to share this with you. My mother recently passed away. She was 85 years young. She left me an old painting of Miss Willoughby by George Romney. It has been passed down through generations. I look online and see the replicas going for $319 and so on. The painting I have is old. The painting that I have may actually be the original, not a replica. I am enclosing a photo of it. J.M., Internet Dear J.M.: The English artist George Romney, 1734-1802, is widely recognized in the antiques art market. The original painting, titled Portrait of Miss Juliana Willoughby, is currently on exhibit at the National Gallery of Art. There were numerous artists making copies of his works from the late 18th and on through the 19th century. There are even larger quantities of printed copies of his works that are over 100 years old. If your picture is a print, there is very little dollar value, even if it is 100 years old. Take a hand magnifier and look closely at the detail. If you observe a tiny uniform dot pattern, it is a commercial grade print made in the 20th century. In your photograph it looks like the picture is a print, rather than a pastiche or copy.

After several seasons of neglect, local rose enthusiasts Beverly Rose Hopper and Terry Reilly stepped in to save the garden, which dates to 1932. It was a disgrace, Hopper recalled. It was time to either fix it or bulldoze it. They rallied volunteers and assigned them work days. In 2007, they created the Friends of the San Jose Rose Garden, dedicated to maintaining and improving the garden. Budget cuts in recent years have led a growing number of volunteers to pitch in and help cities, counties and states maintain public parks, green spaces and gardens, said Bill Beckner, a research manager with the National Recreation and Park Association in Ashburn, Va. He cautioned that local governments and others who enlist volunteers must address liability issues, develop job descriptions and training programs, and determine whether using Volunteer gardeners fill gap in era of tight budgets See GARDENS / Page E11 Citizens want to keep their communities beautiful Associated Press Volunteer Betsy Collins prunes a rose bush on Oct. 21 at the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden in San Jose, Calif.

Festivals, fairs, concerts, parades and other community events provide residents and visitors with opportunities to come together to celebrate with some fun and laughter. Then theres boating, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, biking, hiking, swimming, scalloping diving, bird watching and countless other outdoor activities offered on our waterways, parks, trails and natural areas.

With all of these endearing characteristics and lumbering ways of life, this sea cow has undeniably hit celebrity status in Citrus County, which supports the largest concentration in a natural spring area. www.visitcitrus.com P LACESTOGOT HINGSTODO Heritage Village Heritage Village consists of many unique gift and specialty shops, a charming tea bar and The Caf on the Avenue.

Numerous public boat ramps make access easy for all the boating opportunities the area provides. Private marinas, boat storage areas, boat rental outlets and retail establishments that sell boats and all types of marine supplies provide resources any boater might need. www.visitcitrus.comPhilip Wilchynski T he Homosassa Spring produces about 100 cubic feetof water every second of every day. All that water becomes the Homosassa River, which flows nine miles to the Gulf of Mexico and forms the hub of the community. Residents and tourists alike enjoy the relaxed environment, whether it is watchng the wildlife that flourishes in the forests and hammocks or wetting a fishing line. The picturesque beauty of narrow tree-lined streets curving around Old Homosassa with its art galleries, boutiques, waterfront restaurants, motels and marinas make it a boaters paradise. Theres also a good supply of history going back to the time when Native Americans called the area place where peppers grow when it served as a seasonal gathering place for ancient nomadic tribes. The David Yulee Plantation was formed in 1846, and was destroyed during the Civil War. The ruins of the plantations mill are a state park that reminds visitors of the areas fasinating past. Bringing the towns history even closer is a group the historic committee of the Homosassa Civic Club that has placed historic markers at important locations.

Numerous public boat ramps make access easy for all the boating opportunities the area provides. Private marinas, boat storage areas, boat rental outlets and retail establishments that sell boats and all types of marine supplies provide resources any boater might need. www.visitcitrus.comPhilip Wilchynski T he Homosassa Spring produces about 100 cubic feetof water every second of every day. All that water becomes the Homosassa River, which flows nine miles to the Gulf of Mexico and forms the hub of the community. Residents and tourists alike enjoy the relaxed environment, whether it is watchng the wildlife that flourishes in the forests and hammocks or wetting a fishing line. The picturesque beauty of narrow tree-lined streets curving around Old Homosassa with its art galleries, boutiques, waterfront restaurants, motels and marinas make it a boaters paradise. Theres also a good supply of history going back to the time when Native Americans called the area place where peppers grow when it served as a seasonal gathering place for ancient nomadic tribes. The David Yulee Plantation was formed in 1846, and was destroyed during the Civil War. The ruins of the plantations mill are a state park that reminds visitors of the areas fasinating past. Bringing the towns history even closer is a group the historic committee of the Homosassa Civic Club that has placed historic markers at important locations.

Houses are scattered between pastures kept short by grazing cattle. However, looks are deceiving. And Lecanto has come a long way from the isolated Middleground it was in the late 1880s when its original name reflected its humble beginnings as the halfway point between the Withlacoochee River and the old stage stand where fresh horses replaced weary ones. Now straddling the corridor of the Lecanto Highway is a community that includes a thriving community college and expansive government center, the countys central health department, and a school complex with four schools that includes the Curtis Peterson Auditorium a popular entertainment venue. And also calling Lecanto home is the sprawing Withlacoochee State Forest that offers hiking, horse trails, camping areas, picnic shelters and fishing. The College of Central Florida Citrus Campus.

Located in a remote area of the refuge, the home-away-from-home consists of a natural marsh with an oyster shell reef added to create a sloping shoreline for the cranes to roost comfortably in water. The site is surrounded by an electric fence to ward off predators, especially bobcats. The cranes are free to fly out of the pen site to forage, but are encouraged to come back to the safety of the pen to roost overnight by supplemental feeding. The Chassahowitzka River is called an anglers slice of heaven and its name, translated from the Timucan Indians, means Place of the Hanging Pumpkins. www.stateparks.com/chassahowitzka.htmlJudy Wanamaker

State regulations allow each person to collect two gallons of whole bay scallops or one pint of meat, with no more than 10 gallons of whole scallops or half a gallon of meat on any vessel at any time. www.visitcitrus.com

Located in a remote area of the refuge, the home-away-from-home consists of a natural marsh with an oyster shell reef added to create a sloping shoreline for the cranes to roost comfortably in water. The site is surrounded by an electric fence to ward off predators, especially bobcats. The cranes are free to fly out of the pen site to forage, but are encouraged to come back to the safety of the pen to roost overnight by supplemental feeding. The Chassahowitzka River is called an anglers slice of heaven and its name, translated from the Timucan Indians, means Place of the Hanging Pumpkins. www.stateparks.com/chassahowitzka.htmlJudy Wanamaker

Houses are scattered between pastures kept short by grazing cattle. However, looks are deceiving. And Lecanto has come a long way from the isolated Middleground it was in the late 1880s when its original name reflected its humble beginnings as the halfway point between the Withlacoochee River and the old stage stand where fresh horses replaced weary ones. Now straddling the corridor of the Lecanto Highway is a community that includes a thriving community college and expansive government center, the countys central health department, and a school complex with four schools that includes the Curtis Peterson Auditorium a popular entertainment venue. And also calling Lecanto home is the sprawing Withlacoochee State Forest that offers hiking, horse trails, camping areas, picnic shelters and fishing. The College of Central Florida Citrus Campus.

Park at your own risk; there are no designated parking spots and you will be parking on the side of County Road 491.

Once you enter this cave from the back (walk around the right-hand side), other smaller caves branch off and range in a variety of difficulties. A short hike farther down a side trail will take you to the Peace Cave. The narrow opening can be hard to find, so look for the spray-painted peace sign on a large oak tree just above it. Just drop down after dangling into the hole of darkness and you can easily explore several large chambers of hidden history.

This picturesque community also offers natural beauty with its crowning glory the Avenue of the Oaks Orange Avenue or County Road 48. This stretch of highway is one of the most photographed in the state, as visitors stop to capture the moss-draped oaks with their cameras. Theres no doubt that the scenery is important to the town, but an active heritage council is also busy making sure that the towns fascinating history is also an important attraction. The Floral City Heritage Council operates the Heritage Hall Museum and Country Store and has created a selfguided tour of the historic district, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A brochure available at the museum for $1 will lead visitors through the tour. Throw in the bass-filled lakes, antique shops, art galleries and access to the Withlacoochee State Trail and its easy to see why Floral City is such a popular destination.

Flounder Drive, Floral City Orange Avenue One of the most photographed roadways in the state of Florida, Orange Avenue, or County Road 48, threads its way through a picturesque canopy of moss-draped oaks that have become Floral Citys signature. The trees, planted over a hundred years ago, meet to form a virtual tunnel in and out of the postcard community, giving the street the name Avenue of the Oaks. Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes Floral City marks the beginning of the Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes, which run north into the Gulf of Mexico for the next 50 miles along the Withlacoochee River. Tsala Apopka is a Native American name meaning many waters, and the description fits. This large body of water is composed of about 50 small lakes, many unnamed, which together form an expansive chain. Tsala Apopka is a natural lake chain, with only a few manmade boat trails and canals. Steve Stackhouse

Although the Great Depression snuffed out that dream, Jims son, Doc, began planting citrus in the rich hammock soil and turned that golf course dream into the first Ferris Groves, producing all varieties of Floridas finest citrus. Today there are more than 80 acres of strawberries, producing in excess of 220,000 flats of strawberries per season. This is more than a tripling of growth in acreage from 25 in 1986 when the strawberry farms were originally conceived. Floral City Labyrinth Planned to be a quiet spot of beauty dedicated to those we have loved and lost, the Floral City Garden Club developed the Floral City Memorial Garden located next to the Masonic Lodge Building on Orange Avenue. A circular path, the labyrinth is made of brick and symbols. Its 11 rings and center circle signify the number 12, as in the months of the year, the Apostles of Christ and the Tribes of Israel. The 20-foot-diameter path represents creation; the rose-shaped center area represents love and signifies the six days and six elements of creation.

Four years after becoming a Merchant Marine in Greece at the age of 14, he moved to New York and stepped into the restaurant business as a dishwasher. Six months later he acquired a position as a cook.

The refurbished interior now houses two spacious history museum exhibition galleries, a library, a media area and the country store. The facilities will also be open for special events throughout the year. Individual requests to open the museum after hours are welcomed; call Frank Peters at (352) 860-0101. Kayaking/Canoeing/Boating From dinghies and yachts to kayaks and pontoons, theres a body of water in Citrus County to float everyones boat. Numerous public boat ramps make access easy for all the boating opportunities the area provides. Private marinas, boat storage areas, boat rental outlets and retail establishments that sell boats and all types of marine supplies provide resources any boater might need. www.visitcitrus.com Ferris Groves Ferris Groves has been a Floral City landmark since Jim Ferris, whose uncle invented the Ferris Wheel, arrived in 1925 with plans to convert nearby Duval Island into a high-priced golfers paradise. Although the Great Depression snuffed out that dream, Jims son, Doc, began planting citrus in the rich hammock soil and turned that golf course dream into the first Ferris Groves, producing all varieties of Floridas finest citrus. Today there are more than 80 acres of strawberries, producing in excess of 220,000 flats of strawberries per season. This is more than a tripling of growth in acreage from 25 in 1986 when the strawberry farms were originally conceived. Floral City Labyrinth Planned to be a quiet spot of beauty dedicated to those we have loved and lost, the Floral City Garden Club developed the Floral City Memorial Garden located next to the Masonic Lodge Building on Orange Avenue. A circular path, the labyrinth is made of brick and symbols. Its 11 rings and center circle signify the number 12, as in the months of the year, the Apostles of Christ and the Tribes of Israel. The 20-foot-diameter path represents creation; the rose-shaped center area represents love and signifies the six days and six elements of creation.

The trees, planted over a hundred years ago, meet to form a virtual tunnel in and out of the postcard community, giving the street the name Avenue of the Oaks. Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes Floral City marks the beginning of the Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes, which run north into the Gulf of Mexico for the next 50 miles along the Withlacoochee River. Tsala Apopka is a Native American name meaning many waters, and the description fits. This large body of water is composed of about 50 small lakes, many unnamed, which together form an expansive chain. Tsala Apopka is a natural lake chain, with only a few manmade boat trails and canals. Steve Stackhouse

Developed over 40 years ago as a retirement community for northerners looking to retire where the weather was warm in the winter, the community started with about six model homes built near the old lumberyard. Sam Kellner pioneered what was to become a popular real estate marketing tool known as fly and buy where prospective homebuyers were flown to the area to pick out their lot and type of home they wanted. Those home are now attracting first-time homeowners who are helping to make this community more diverse with young families now in the mix of retirees who live in the neighborhoods. The area boasts shopping centers, medical offices, restaurants, parks, golf courses and the countys largest library, which hosts the county library systems administrative offices.

Developed over 40 years ago as a retirement community for northerners looking to retire where the weather was warm in the winter, the community started with about six model homes built near the old lumberyard. Sam Kellner pioneered what was to become a popular real estate marketing tool known as fly and buy where prospective homebuyers were flown to the area to pick out their lot and type of home they wanted. Those home are now attracting first-time homeowners who are helping to make this community more diverse with young families now in the mix of retirees who live in the neighborhoods. The area boasts shopping centers, medical offices, restaurants, parks, golf courses and the countys largest library, which hosts the county library systems administrative offices.

C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE Sunday, October 30, 2011 G19 V IEWFINDER G2 Sunday, October 30, 2011C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE V IEWFINDER A Boo!-tiful thing: Television scares up Halloween treats By Jay Bobbin Zap2it OK, now, dont be scared: Some networks have been celebrating Halloween already, but here comes the real trickor-treat deal. The new week begins on the eve of the annual visits from little candy-seeking goblins and witches along with the occasional Spider-Man and Disney princess and television is well aware of the occasion. Between movies, specials and appropriate series episodes, the home screen will have viewers well covered Sunday and Monday, Oct. 30 and 31. Heres a look at many of the horrifying highlights. ABC: Sundays Desperate Housewives goes for the macabre with a story about moving the body of Gabys slain stepfather ... with Tony Plana, who played the nowdeceased man, directing the episode. And Dancing With the Stars hadnt confirmed its plans for Monday at this writing, but with costuming a big element of that show anyway, it would be surprising if at least one duo didnt fold in a Halloween salute. CBS: The CSI: Miami team faces an eerie challenge Sunday, courtesy of a maid who appears to have died from a vampires neck bites. On Monday, Katie Holmes pays a visit to How I Met Your Mother as the so-called Slutty Pumpkin, then Mike & Molly attend a Halloween party, and Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street) appears in a Hawaii Five-0 case about a Hawaiian burial site. NBC: Theres no question The Sing-Off will be in the spirit of the evening Monday, since the set will be done up as a cemetery, and the seven remaining a cappella groups will perform tunes on the order of Ghostbusters and Werewolves of London. Fox: What would a season of The Simpsons be without another Treehouse of Horrors episode? Volume XXII airs Sunday, with Aron Ralston the climber whose survival story fueled the movie Hours voicing his cartoon likeness to help Homer out of a similar plight. ABC Family: Americas Funniest Home Videos repeats on both Sunday and Monday have a Halloween theme, but mainly, the last two days of the networks Nights of Halloween festival involve movies ... The Addams Family, Practical Magic and Van Helsing Sunday, and Casper and Hocus Pocus Monday. AMC: The series The Walking Dead provides chills on a weekly basis, but coming the night before Halloween, Sundays new episode set largely in a school that just happens to be filled with the undead should have special relevance. And both Sunday and Monday, the roster of movies boasts several of the Halloween thrillers, including the 1978 original that put star Jamie Lee Curtis and director John Carpenter on the map. Animal Planet: Finding Bigfoot: Birth of a Legend plunges into Californias Redwoods for two hours Sunday in a high-tech-driven search for Sasquatch. Cinemax: The pay channel has many horror movies in store Monday, but the clear standouts are two Alfred Hitchcock-directed classics, the cautionary shower story Psycho and the featheredfriends-in-attack-mode saga The Birds. Comedy Central: Halloween is the common link among Mondays encore episodes of such series as South Park, Rock and Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Disney Channel: Its a trip to Halloweentown in a big way Sunday, with several of the Debbie Reynolds-starring movies in the fantasy franchise scheduled. Food Network: A Frightfully Good episode of The Best Thing I Ever Ate, a Halloween Wars installment and a Food Network Challenge involving Outrageous Pumpkins are in Sundays lineup. FX: The first Twilight movie with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner is the centerpiece of the networks Halloween weekend schedule Sunday, but also worth noting are two efforts from spooky specialist filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan, The Sixth Sense with Bruce Willis and The Happening with Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschanel. Hallmark Channel: A Good Witch festival of Catherine Bell-starring TV movies is on tap Sunday, including the newest one, The Good Witchs Family. And Monday offers Halloween-oriented repeats of The Waltons, Little House on the Prairie and Frasier. Spike TV: Sunday, the underrated movie melodrama The Unborn with Odette Yustman whos now Odette Annable of House will be followed by Sara Paxton (Shark Night 3D) in the 2009 remake of The Last House on the Left. Syfy: Ghost Hunters Halloween Live pretty much says it all, as Mondays annual evening-long special takes investigators from both Ghost Hunters and Ghost Hunters International to and through a now-abandoned Pennsylvania asylum. Travel Channel: Halloween Crazy (Sunday) and Ghost Adventures: The Beginning (Monday) are among the trips the channel plans to take to unusual locales. Turner Classic Movies: Always a Halloween haven at this time of year, the channel gives chillers starring Frankenstein, Dracula and the Mummy a television home Monday ... along with the original, still-hair-raising version of Night of the Living Dead. TV Land: Halloween stories were trademarks of Roseanne, which now is a staple of this nostalgia-oriented network. Thus, those episodes are compiled into Roseannes Wicked Halloween Bash Sunday. USA: The Muppets and the WWE arent the likeliest combination, but Oct. 31 can make for strange bedfellows ... as will be proven Monday when Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang guest-host a WWE Monday Night Raw Halloween special. 352-465-6631 PAINTING Ferraros Painting Interior & Exterior Pressure Washing FREE ESTIMATES Repaint Specialist 0009CN2 0009F80 When mopping isnt enough call...

This Finding Bigfoot special, timed for Halloween, follows the Bigfoot Field Research Organization as it uses new technology to look into the most famous Bigfoot encounter ever, a bit of film captured in Northern California in 1967. The site is chock-full of Bigfoot news and speculation, video clips, tweets and tales. Ghost Hunters Halloween Live 2011, www.syfy.com/ghosthuntersliveFor this years edition of its annual live Halloween investigation, Grant Wilson and Jason Hawes head to the Pennhurst State School and Hospital in Spring City, Pa.
