M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterMany people take a drive up County Road 495 into Citronelle and DeRosa, or U.S. 19 through Red Level, and think its a quiet, out-of-the way corner of the county. And it is. But state Sen. Charlie Deans memories of early childhood are much different. Dean, raised in Citrus County his entire life, lived with his family in the Citronelle/Red Level area in the 1940s from about age 3 to 8 or 9. There was nothing but farms, Dean, R-Inverness, said. Everybody had the same thing: Nothing. It was farm country. By the 1950s, he said, that began to change. Land speculators bought huge chunks of property and subdivided it, and houses began to spring up where the farms once were. In the 1960s, Pete and Bruna DeRosa arrived from New York and started developing DeRosa Village, bringing more homeowners and business to the area. While much of the platted land throughout the northwest part of the county remains vacant, many believe that will change drastically if the Suncoast Parkway is ever extended. The parkway, off the table for now because of the economy, would extend the INSIDE OCTOBER 31, 2011 Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best Community VOLUME 117 ISSUE 85 50 CITRUS COUNTY Mile-high salute: Detroit sacks Tebows team in Denver /B2 www.chronicleonline.com INDEX Comics....................B6 Crossword................B5 Editorial..................A12 Entertainment..........B4 Horoscope................B4 Lottery Numbers......B3 Lottery Payouts........B4 Movies......................B6 Obituaries................A6 TV Listings................B5 Classifieds................B7 ONLINE POLL: Your choice?Would you participate in an Occupy Citrus protest?

Names like Tompkins, Bos well, Hampton and Dampier are clearly (and not so clearly) marked on the tombstones scattered throughout the Dampier Cemetery. The oldest graves belong to Henrietta Dampier (born April 13, 1855; died July 30, 1881) and John Henry Dampier (born Jan.18, 1879; died Nov. 11, 1881). Twenty-three others named Dampier are buried there. The most recent grave belongs to Tom F.

S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 MONDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE M y jaunt on the Big Cypress Trail was a short one half a mile roundtrip but it was like the hike through a cacophony of natural wonder with a towering botanical El Dorado at the halfway point. This slice of Goethe State Forest is the seminal illustration of Florida of yore replete with its hammocks, scrubs, freshwater marsh, sandhills and cypress with their whorl tops. The stands of old-growth longleaf pine are on another portion of this 54,000-acre magical slice of real estate smack in the gut of the Nature Coast. To get to the botanical gem at the end of the trail requires a detour from the daily routine down a path of unparalleled beauty and grace. The path begins by heading north on U.S. 19 from Citrus County; a little past the county line beyond Inglis is County Road 121, turn right and go for a couple of miles. Before you get to the sign that says welcome to Goethe State Forest, hit your left blinker and head down a dirt road called Cow Creek Road. Its a bumpy ride, and watch for the occasional family of wild hogs crossing the road. The ride on the road also showcases the unique ecological magnificence of wild north/central Florida. On one side is the charred remains of timber from raging fires which have exposed the sandhill. On the other side, a rolling stand of loblolly and slash pine with wind basin and dome swamp mixed in. About 3.5 miles down the road, to the left will be a sign that reads Big Cypress Trail. The trailhead has a couple of picnic tables and a kiosk telling you what to expect at the end of the trail. But before you enter the trail, dont forget the insect repellent! Then it is off into the enchanted garden of palmettos, Southern magnolias, verdant ferns, wild pine wrapped around a canopy of cypress and the sweet chatter of birdlife to break the serene cadence and sounds of your own shuffling. The red-cockaded woodpecker could be occasionally heard picking at the oak while the famous Shermans fox squirrels dart across the crisp thicket playing catch me if you can. Forester Tim Worley said the squirrels are on the threatened list, and for good reason. People are normally amazed at the size of this animal. It is quite large for a squirrel and looks very much like a fox, hence the name, Worley said. He said the squirrels tail alone is about 18 inches long and thick. At a sharp turn on the trail is a boardwalk built to help visitors avoid trudging through swamp to get to the prize. On a clear day, straight ahead you can see the sage, the granddaddy of all the champion bald cypress around it The Goethe Giant. Just like Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is a giant of German letters, our Goethe Giant is the bald behemoth of the forests of the American South. It soars to 105 feet and is 9 feet in diameter and has been around more than 900 years. At the end of the boardwalk is the ground floor of the giant. Its scale is unimaginable. Yes, it is not the giant redwood of California, but ole Goethe sure stands out here among its peer baldies and scrubby flatwoods and other pine. It is indeed a true Florida gem. A.B. Sidibe OFF THE BEATEN PATH IF YOU GO HOURS: The forest is open during daylight hours for visitors. HORSEBACK RIDING: Horseback riders must have proof of current negative Coggins Test results for their horses when on state lands. CAMPING: Overnight camping is allowed by permit only. Private campgrounds are near the forest. HIKING: Goethe State Forest contains two hiking trails (Tidewater and Black Prong) that are included in the Florida Forest Services Trailwalker Hiking Program. CALL: For information, call (352) 465-8585. A.B. SIDIBE /Chronicle The base of The Goethe Giant, above, is about 9 feet in diameter. The tree reaches about 105 feet, below, making it a unique sight to see in Levy County. C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterThe county took steps last week to finalize a sewer system along Fort Island Trail in Crystal River. The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) agreed in a 4-to-1 vote Tuesday to adopt an ordinance establishing a municipal service benefit unit for wastewater utility services to provide centralized sewer service to the area and adopt a resolution to create a wastewater special assessment district for the area. This is the last of 11 phases of a project that dates back to a 1999 grant that was part of a statewide effort to reduce contamination to the groundwater by eliminating septic tanks, the BOCC heard from Crystal River Public Works Director David Burnell. Septic systems dont work. Burnell said. The tank itself is fine, but the leach field that is the final treatment does not work well within a high ground waters situation, which we have in that area of the county. Crystal River would award a contract for construction in July and allow a construction period of 10 months, with completion expected in 2014, Burnell said. The project cost is $4.6 million, Burnell said. The grant is $3.9 million. So far, residents have not been given a specific assessment. The cost to connect to the citys wastewater system is projected to be $3,425. Burnell explained the process. The property owner would have to hook up within 365 days of the city advising that sewer service was available. The owner would need to disconnect from the septic system and take the septic tank out of service by hiring a licensed plumber. That would require two permits, a plumbing permit and a permit to remove the septic tank. Commission Chairman Dennis Damato said the project was a window of opportunity for people. This is the once-in-a-lifetime deal that you hope that any resident would get that somebodys going to pay 85 percent for you to go ahead and remove your septic tank and residents from all over the state of Florida are going to subsidize you to go ahead and get connected to sewer, Damato said. On the other hand, Commissioner Winn Webb said he had to play devils advocate because the city of Crystal River would levy a 25-percent surcharge on monthly bills to residents in the 11th phase. Webb said he could not vote to adopt the ordinance and resolution because of the surcharge. Damato said he did not like it either, but it was a legal charge under Florida law. Crystal River City Manager Andy Houston said the ability to levy a 25-percent surcharge was a specific element of proceeding with the interlocal agreement with the county. He said the city had agreed to lower the interest rate and extend the time frame of repayments, but did not waive the surcharge. Taxes paid by Crystal River residents were more than the 25 percent surcharge to the non-residents, Houston said. Houston also said the city would incur added expense in processing effluent from the project, and the surcharge would offset that expense. Commissioner John JJ Kenney said he would vote for the project, but with reservation about the surcharge. He urged residents to attend a city council meeting to oppose the surcharge and asked Houston to take the message back to his council. Crystal River resident Norman Hopkins questioned the projects premise. He said homeowners were notified of the need for a sewer system in a letter stating the matter was proved by environmental testing done in 1999. Hopkins said research turned up no testing. Gary Maidhof, county projects and operations officer, agreed no environmental study was conducted specific to Crystal River. But he said studies have been done to identify human-based pathogens within the Kings Bay discharge. Whether the source was septic systems would be open for debate. Maidhof said a study specific to Chassahowitzka, which has a similar karst geology to Crystal River, showed human-based pathogens in the water were the result of the use of septic systems affecting the surface water. Hopkins said he had been required to raise his house to fill in more soil to ensure an adequate amount of soil in the drain field for treatment, and his septic system then was approved for use. Damato said by statute the septic system was of temporary use until a sewer system was available. Hopkins also raised questions about the projects loan repayment. Bob Knight, director of water resources, said details were not yet finalized and would be corrected if necessary. Only Webb voted against the motion, which included the setting of a public hearing at 1:45 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 13, to hear public comment about the use of the uniform method for the levy, collection and enforcement of non-ad valorem assessments.

County supports sewer project for Kings Bay Specific assessment not given to local residents affected ChronicleLECANTO Nearly 100 people showed support for the Taste of CF Saturday night raising $30,100 for the STEPS to CF scholarship program. Money raised will go to fund three $10,000 scholarships for one student graduating from fifth grade at Floral City, Hernando and Inverness Primary schools. They are our future, said Dr. Vernon Lawter, vice president of CF Citrus campus. Citrus Memorial Health System, D.A.B. Construction and Rebecca and Mike Bays donated money to make the scholarships happen, as well as corporate and individual support. One student is awarded the scholarship, allowing him or her to attend any campus of the College of Central Florida upon graduating high school. Citrus Springs Elementary Principal Scott Hebert said it is a wonderful opportunity for students who may not necessarily have the means to attend college. He said it also keeps them focused and on track to strive for educational success. The evening included dinner by Elegant Catering, wine by Dakotah Winery and music and dancing compliments of the Lester Freeman Band and guitarist Ben Medrano.

Female panther found dead in SW Florida NAPLES State wildlife officials say an apparent collision with a vehicle has claimed another Florida panther. Its the 24th panther death this year and the ninth due to a collision with a vehicle. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said the 3-year-old or 4year-old female panther was found dead Sunday at the Collier-Hendry county line. The animal has been transported to the wildlife commissions Naples office. A necropsy will be performed at the agencys wildlife research lab in Gainesville, and the remains will be archived at the Florida Museum of Natural History.Rainy remnants of TS Rina spawn tornadoHOBE SOUND The National Weather Service says the remnants of Tropical Storm Rina dumping rain across Florida spawned a weak tornado that briefly touched down on the states Atlantic coast. Officials said Sunday the tornado touched down Saturday morning in Hobe Sound with maximum winds of 65 to 70 mph. The roof of a mobile home was ripped off and blown 50 yards away, a large palm tree was uprooted and several other homes sustained minor damage. The trail of damage was just a tenth of a mile long. Photos aired on local television stations showed small trees blown over and carports caved in. No serious injuries were reported. Teen jailed in gang rape speaks about case WEST PALM BEACH A teen who pleaded guilty to participating in the gang rape of a woman and her son has told a South Florida television station he doesnt think his 30-year prison sentence is fair. Avion Lawson was 14 when he was charged in the 2007 gang rape in a West Palm Beach housing project. In an interview at the Mayo Correctional Institution with West Palm Beachs WPEC-TV, Lawson said he was forced at gunpoint to rape the woman by one of the other teens convicted in the case, Tommy Poindexter. I was forced to do something I did not want to do, Lawson said. He said he feared he would be killed if he tried to run away. I had no control, he said. Police say up to 10 young men raped the mother and her 12-year-old son for three hours, then doused them with household cleaners. Lawson was one of four teens arrested. He pleaded guilty in August 2009 and testified against the other three defendants Poindexter, Jakaris Taylor and Nathan Walker. The three were convicted and each was sentenced to life in prison. Sen. Nelson running a casual campaign LAKE BUENA VISTA Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson is up for re-election, but hes not exactly acting like hes got a race to run in 2012. Nelson doesnt have a campaign manager, isnt afraid of tying himself to the president and is acting as if he has no opposition. However, five Republicans are hoping to unseat him. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama, whos also up for re-election, is polling poorly. But Nelson is raising a ton of money and running on a philosophy that just doing his job is good enough for now. Nelson had a high visibility at the Florida Democratic Party convention that wrapped up Sunday. He gave a speech to delegates and hosted a party for activists, but he refused to discuss his opposition.

parkway through Citrus County from U.S. 98 to U.S. 19 near Red Level. Plans called for an exit on County Road 495, which would give easy access for Tampa area workers to homes in northwest Citrus. If the expressway dumps out at 495, this area will definitely grow, DeRosas grandson, Peter DeRosa, said. Pete DeRosa died in Aug. 2004. His son, Pete A. DeRosa, has mixed feelings about the potential for significant growth brought by the parkway or a possible Progress Energy power plant in Levy County. Its a good thing for the economy, but I personally like it peaceful and quiet, Pete DeRosa said. Dean said he believes the area will see growth and he understands why those who live in there now wouldnt necessarily want that. Its like anywhere else. Nobody wants to grow once you get your piece of paradise, Dean said. Nobody wants that growth but thats not the reality. The reality is its going to happen.

Its surprisingly well known considering its location, which is on State Road 200 on the Citrus side of the Withlacoochee River that divides Citrus and Marion counties. The owner is Shane Williamson, 32, but they call him Red because of his red hair, a name he has had his whole life. He has owned the popular eatery for the past four years. A lot of people consider us in the middle of nowhere, he said with a smile. Its a small town and theres not a lot going on. Thats the way I like it. He said he has been in the restaurant business for what seems like forever, and hes not about to change that. Williamson started working for Stumpknockers on the River, a well-liked restaurant on the Marion County side of the Withlacoochee River, when he was 13. He used to cut the grass there. The second time he came to cut the grass, the dishwasher didnt show up for work and he volunteered for the job. He worked his way up and spent the last 10 of his 17 years there as general manager of the restaurant. He said Tim Channell, owner of Stumpknockers, took him under his wing and taught him everything he knows about the restaurant business. Tim was a great mentor and a great teacher, he said. As we grew together, he taught me the way he liked things, and it just made sense. A lot of what I do here is from what he taught me. He said the two restaurants do not compete against each other, as Reds is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Stumpknockers opens at 4 p.m. He is proud of the fact Channell frequents his restaurant. Williamson said he had a dream of starting his own business and wanted to spend nights at home with his family, something he could not do when he worked at Stumpknockers. It was a tough choice, he said. If I hadnt started having a family I would probably have worked there the rest of my life. He said having the two restaurants on each side of the river is good for the area. We kind of capture the old Florida, the look, the atmosphere and the Southern style of cooking, he said. Its something you cant find in a chain (restaurant). People are driving past those places to come here. Williamson said his business is great, and on weekends there usually is a crowd of people sitting on the old church pews under his front porch or on benches that stand on his well-manicured front lawn, waiting for a table. But that was not always the case, as the economy was well on its way down when he first opened his doors. We didnt get the amount of working-class people that I originally expected, he said. Construction guys were out of work. If your out of work, youre not up that early and youre definitely not buying breakfast. He has an optimistic outlook for the future of Hernando and his business. We are out in the country, and theres not a whole lot around us, he said. Its still a small town and the people are very nice. He is hoping one of his five children will fall in love with the restaurant business, as he did so many years ago, and take over when he retires. We have a unique calling for this type of restaurant, he said. Its one of those things you dont find every day. I believe well be here for many, many years to come. Reds is open Tuesday through Sunday and is at 8411 State Road 200 in Hernando. For information, call (352) 344-4322 or visit redsrestaurant.net.

turned into Money Mountain, a novelty at the event where Regions Bank buried $200 in coins. Children were allowed to dig for the treasure. Desiree Harmon brought both of her sons, Brayden Harmon, 3, and Hunter Salminen, 4, dressed as ninja turtles. The boys played for a good part of the afternoon searching and digging for buried coins. I didnt have a lot of money to bring out today, so Im glad they found something to do, she said with a smile. Its fun, familyorientated, theres definitely a lot of different things to do for the kids. Also new to the festival this year was the Duck, Duck, Cooter Race, conducted to benefit Inverness Boy Scout Troop 457. The troop is trying to raise money to help send themselves to the Boy Scouts of America Northern Tier High Adventure Program in Ely, Minn., this December for winter scouting activities. Before the race, numbered rubber ducks were sold giving each person who purchased a duck a chance at winning the race and a portion of the money collected. The race took place on Lake Henderson where hundreds of the ducks were dumped into the lake. They were confined to a floating plastic pipe racecourse and propelled by the wake from an electric trolling motor. Winners were: Marlise Bushman, first place, $250; Brad Kelly, second place, $50 and B&W Rexall Drugs, third place, $25. Thank you to everyone who donated, Judi VanDermark, troop committee chair, said. And hopefully well do this next year. Frank DiGiovanni, Inverness city manager, said there were so many people at this years event parking was at a premium. He said some of the festivalgoers had to park several streets over and walk quite a distance. He said most didnt complain because the Cooter Festival was worth the walk. Saying this (festival) has been exceptionally well attended is an understatement, he said. More importantly, the comments by the people have been overwhelmingly positive, keeping Inverness as a huge focal point for the whole county.Cooterween Costume Contest results0-1 year old First place Liam Gipe, Citrus Springs Second place Luxy Hugar, Floral City Third place Bryce Rosier, Inverness 1-year-old First place Rylie Gustafson, Inverness Second place Melodie Certain, Citrus Springs Third place Aaliyah Bailey, Inverness 2-year-old First place Wade Kirk, Winter Park Second place Aubrey Touchton, Inverness Third place Joey Hogan, Citrus Springs 3-year-old First place Zoey Ithyre, Inverness Second place Allizelle McNett, Wesley Chapel Third place Alexander Ithure, Inverness 4-year-old First place Skylar Sultan, Inverness Second place Stella Fink, Homosassa Third place Keely Heath, Inverness 5-year-old First place Skyler Wolff, Lecanto Second place Mya Ithyre, Inverness Third place Chloe Dunn, Inverness First-grade First place Dara Edwars, Inverness Second place Trey Maynard, Inverness Third place Andrew Butler, Citrus Springs Second-grade First place Jonathan Dooley, Inverness Second place Chrissy Zacharias, Floral City Third place Ethan Argote, Homosassa Third-grade First place Megan Reed, Inverness Second place Malachite Davenport, Floral City Third place Isabella Contopoulo, Homosassa Fourth-grade First place Kyle Reed, Inverness Second place Shanisty Rogers, Floral City Third place Nicholas Oldfield, Ohio Fifth-grade First place Meredith Butler, Citrus Springs Second place Jacob Gleason, Inverness Third place Aubrey Lancaster, Ocoee Sixth-grade First place Michael Carroll, Inverness Second place Lindsey Spaight, Inverness Third place Cayleigh Roddenberry, Floral City Seventh-grade First place Brooke Johnsy, Inverness Second place Alex Hand, Inverness Third place Rachel Haleen, Lecanto Eighth-grade First place Christian Cunnings, Sorrento Second place Chase Machin, Homosassa Third place Lara Wolff, Lecanto High School First place Jessica Kamsteeg, Inverness Second place Paige Johnson, Inverness Third place Brittany Burr, Inverness Adult First place Eric and Sherna Anderson, Crystal River Second place Alfredo Cali, Italy Third place Tina Bailey, Inverness Pet First place Dice Horwitz, Inverness Second place Jalapeno Watkins, Hernando Third place Minnie Moore, Inverness Chronicle reporter Cathy Kapulka can be reached at (352) 564-2922 or ckapulka @chronicleonline.com.

Call Wexler Orthodontics at 352-688-0331 or go to www. WexlerOrthodontics.com. Special to the ChronicleGAINESVILLE With Halloween around the corner, its time to look out for those fabled creepy night-flyers, from ghosts and ghouls to blood-sucking bats. But dont confuse fact with legend bats are too busy eating insects to worry about sucking blood or getting tangled in your hair. Its no wonder these flying mammals have suffered centuries of misconceptions. Yet, bats have proven more intriguing than spooky when provided a home in an urban setting, as the University of Florida campus sees thousands of visitors to its stilted bat structures every year. UF has the worlds largest continuously occupied bat houses, in a field across from Lake Alice on Museum Road, and for the first time beginning at 10 a.m. Monday, Oct. 24, the Florida Museum of Natural History launched 24-hour streaming videos of the colony. Bats are often portrayed in movies as just sleeping all day, but thats not the way they operate if you have the opportunity to see them up close, theyre amazingly attractive animals, and theyre not as menacing as you might think, said Florida Museum mammalogy curator David Reed. They may have ugly faces, but theyre brightly colored and you dont get to see that at night. Three bat-cams are installed in and around the structures, including one inside the bat house with tilt, pan and zoom capabilities controlled remotely by museum technicians. Internet users may access the streaming videos by visiting www.flmnh.ufl.edu/bats, where there are also facts about the colony, links to bat conservation organizations and daily sunset times. The bat-cams are really cool for an educational tool, for one thing, Reed said. Also, having that many bats in one concentrated area always gives opportunity for study. Combined, the structures house nearly 300,000 individuals, and the vast majority are Brazilian free-tailed bats. Special to the ChronicleHalloween winds up the month, and citizens can help keep their children (or grandchildren) safe Oct. 31, by following these simple holiday safety guidelines. Check out the Citrus County Sheriffs Office website at www.sheriffcitrus.org for the most up-to-date information about registered sexual predators and offenders living in Citrus County. Just click on the Sexual Offender Information tab and search the list by first or last name, ZIP code or other criteria. Photographs of the offenders also are posted. Those without Internet access may obtain a hard copy of the same list at the CCSO Operations Center in downtown Inverness or any of the agencys three community resource offices. Prior to Halloween night, the agencys Sexual Predator Unit plans on conducting notifications in all the neighborhoods where the countys registered sexual predators live. Also, be on the lookout for posters featuring the names, addresses and photos of all the countys registered sexual predators and offenders on display in Citrus Countys leading box stores. Encourage kids and teens to explore alternatives to traditional trick-ortreating. Harvest festivals, haunted houses and costume parades are popular events sponsored by area churches, community groups and shopping malls, plus Floridas attractions. Organized festivities like these provide some measure of supervision, plus a safer environment for children. Make sure costumes are made of lightcolored, flame-retardant fabrics only. If children are permitted to trick-or-treat after dark, decorate their costumes and candy bags with reflective tape to make them even more visible to motorists. Instead of letting children wear masks that might obscure their vision, try face makeup instead. Props, such as swords and broomsticks, should be made of Styrofoam or cardboard. A responsible adult or teen should accompany each group of youngsters. Try to limit the groups size to four or five. Carry a cell phone for quick communication. At least one person in each group should carry a flashlight. Instruct children to walk, not run, from house to house, and to cover one side of the street at a time. Have them cross only at street corners and not in between parked cars. Children should stay in their own neighborhoods and only go to houses with the lights on. Stress to youngsters that they should never enter a strangers house or vehicle. Teach children to respect the privacy and property of others. Acts of vandalism, aggression or violence potentially could lead to arrest. Dont leave your own home unattended on Halloween, and keep your pets inside. Examine childrens treats for signs of tampering before you allow them to eat anything. Remember, if you have a doubt, throw it out. Report any suspicious treats or incidents to the sheriffs office.

Lego man SARASOTA Lego man is going to stay in police custody for three months. Lego man, a 100-pound, 8foot-tall sculpture, didnt do anything wrong except wash up on a Florida beach. Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight said his office will hold the fiberglass sculpture for 90 days just like all other lost and found property. During that time, authorities will try to determine who the owner is. The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported the local tourism bureau had hoped to use the Lego man to promote the area, but the sheriff said it needs to remain in police custody a little longer. The sculpture mysteriously appeared on a Siesta Key beach Tuesday. A Legoland recently opened in Winter Haven, which is about 70 miles northwest of Siesta Key.5-year-old driver MANSFIELD, Ohio Authorities say a 5-year-old looking for her mother in Ohio backed a car out of the driveway, then called 911 for help. Mansfield police said Ameleah Kegley backed the car out Monday evening after returning from school to an empty house. According to the Mansfield News Journal her mother had gone to the hospital with an emergency and her father never got the message. Worried her mother wasnt home, Ameleah decided to look for her and started her mothers 1999 Lincoln Navigator. It backed down the sloped driveway and came to a stop on grass across the street. The girl dialed 911, explained the situation and asked for quick help getting the car back home, because she said her mom would be upset with her.Pumpkin dump FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. Road workers found themselves plowing pulp Wednesday after a truck dumped a load of pumpkins on a Detroit-area freeway during the morning commute. Hundreds of pumpkins were scattered across several lanes of traffic on eastbound Interstate 696 in Farmington Hills. Many of the pumpkins were pulverized as drivers passed through, and WWJ-AM reported snow plows had to be used to clear what remained of pumpkins from the roadway. Video from a traffic camera showed motorists slowly making their way through the preHalloween mess. Michigan State Police Sgt. James Kemp told the Detroit Free Press one motorist had a smashed windshield, but no injuries were reported. Kemp said police stopped the truck and the driver could be cited for having an unstable load. Drunk, naked driverMOSCOW Russian police say a drunken and naked driver has wreaked havoc in central Moscow, damaging 12 cars before being caught by police. The city police said they started pursuing the man Sunday after he ignored a road sign banning a turn and refused orders to stop. In the ensuing chase, the motorist nearly hit a school bus, rammed through a police vehicle and smashed several other cars before being caught. When police got him he was completely naked. Footage broadcast by Russian television stations showed him lying on the pavement and shouting dont cover me! to officers who tried to cover him with clothes. The man said he came from the ex-Soviet nation of Moldova and was in distress about an unhappy relationship. Forklift getaway PITTSBURGH A pilfered Reuben sandwich and a stolen forklift have a Pittsburgh man in quite a pickle. Ross Township police said 38-year-old Sean Faulkner ordered the sandwich from a bar, then ran out without paying and climbed on a forklift for his getaway. Faulkner allegedly stole the forklift from a construction site Sunday, then drove it two miles to Siebs Pub. Bartender Karie Donatelli said Faulkner ordered the sandwich, then bolted for the door after his food arrived. Investigators said Faulkner was still in the parking lot when officers arrived. Police said he couldnt get the forklift to go into reverse. Faulkner was being held at Allegheny County Jail on charges of theft and receiving stolen property. Wayward poochROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. Petey the wayward Jack Russell terrier is home. After three months and hundreds of miles, the dog was reunited Thursday with owner Jim Arrighi in Erin, Tenn. Arrighis daughter, Tyanne Morrison, said Petey arrived in the care of a Michigan Humane Society volunteer who set out Wednesday from suburban Detroit. Morrison said her 73-yearold father actually just cried when he got the dog back. Arrighi left Petey in his backyard in July and the dog was gone when he returned home. A homeowner in Rochester Hills, about 20 miles north of Detroit, saw Petey last week in his back yard and took him to a Humane Society animal care center. Arrighi was identified as the owner when the dog was scanned for an implanted microchip. Late for work MIAMI A Miami police officer is accused of driving 120 mph on a turnpike because he was late for his off-duty job working security at a school. The Florida Highway Patrol said officer Fausto Lopez was arrested at gunpoint after leading police on a brief high-speed chase. According to a police report, a trooper spotted a patrol car changing lanes in a dangerous manner earlier this month. The report stated the patrol car ignored warnings to pull over and led a brief high-speed chase before stopping near Hollywood. Parking tickets PITTSBURGH While firefighters in Pittsburgh were at city hall getting flu shots, the trucks they parked outside were getting parking tickets. The trucks were parked for about five minutes Wednesday in permit-only spaces reserved for City Council members. But council President Darlene Harris denied any involvement. Mayor Luke Ravenstahl said the tickets never should have been issued. He said firefighters were encouraged to get flu shots to stay healthy.C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, O CTOBER 31, 2011 A9 0009MWV or Bifocals $ 12 9 Eyecare Express 20/20 Same Day Service Even Bifocals & Safety Glasses *CERTAIN RESTRICTIONS APPLY.

To name a few: Dr. and Mrs. Richard Dunn for their recent donation of a portable ultrasound unit; members of the Arbor Lakes Homeowners Association for much-needed items such as towels, blankets, food, paper towels, etc; the patients and employees at Citrus Surgery Center for their repeated donations of supplies and food; and to Lee Thompson at Bella Vita Spa and Fitness Center at Terra Vista for the huge supply of spa towels that will be put to use in our newly created Doggie Day Spa. At a time when budgets are tight and commodities are in short supply, the selfless generosity of our citizens is heartwarming. Pattie Amon operations manager, community and recreation programs Citrus County Animal Services Thanks for support Forty-seven thousand, eight hundred pounds vs. 45,465 pounds an increase of 2,335 pounds over last years Make a Difference Day food drive. That is what you all did for our hunger fighting agencies in Citrus County this year. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Citrus County Harvest, the agency; post offices, the vessel. Our message hasnt changed over 12 years of organizing this food drive but our need surely has. When we started this in 1999, we had one participating post office and one recipient agency. Today we have every post office participating and over five recipient agencies. This collaborative partnership and a giving community is our recipe for success. On behalf of our board, I want to thank the employees of the post offices, their postmasters and supervisors for this day of service to their community beyond the scope of their normal duties. We couldnt do this food drive without you nor would we want to. Thank you. I want to thank the directors and volunteers of our agencies who serve the poor, hungry and needy citizens of our county every single day.

Deputy Bob Greatrex led the effort to investigate the break-in and burglary. He and his associates were diligent and effective. They detected and apprehended the criminals and produced the evidence for their prosecution. Deputy Bob was courteous and friendly to me and my associates and kept me informed of the progress of the investigation. It was unfortunate for us that the crimes occurred, but I believe the excellence of your department and its fine reputation for catching those who commit crimes in Citrus County will help deter future criminal activity. Please pass our thanks and commendations to Deputy Bob Greatrex and all others involved in our case.

O PINION Page A12 MONDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2011 Selling the jobs bill President Barack Obama is presently in North Carolina trying to sell his jobs bill. Last week, he was here in Florida where he also attempted to convince the voters and the political leaders that they should support that flawed legislation that he claims will create many jobs and reduce unemployment. Wasnt that what the first $900 billion of our tax money was supposed to do? Instead, unemployment is close to 10 percent; worse yet in Florida, and over 16 percent in the black community. Of course, Mr. Obama is not man enough to accept the blame for his bankrupt policies. But just as much blame should go to our Democratic elected officials who have become nothing more than rubber stamps for this administration. Case in point is the health bill, which passed without a single Republican vote. Every Democrat (with two exceptions) automatically voted for it without even reading it! We all remember then House speaker Nancy Pelosis famous proclamation: Lets vote for this bill so that we can see whats in it. When Sens. Bill Nelson of Nebraska and Mary Landrieu of Louisiana refused to vote for a bill that they said publicly was very flawed, Obama resorted to bribery ($300 million each for their state) so that they could reverse their vote. Our senator, Bill Nelson, cast his vote without hesitation. He has not once in his 11 years in the Senate voted against a bill introduced by a Democrat. Then, at election time, he claims that he works well with the other party. Mr. Obama doesnt have the necessary votes, even from his own party, to pass this legislation. He should get a cue from real estate agents who know that a well-constructed house sells itself. So, instead of attempting to once again shove bad legislation down Americans throats, Mr. Obama should go back to the drawing board, accept suggestions from other legislators and make it palatable to all Americans. Then he would not have to resort to blackmail and bribery.Gino Calderone Beverly Hills Cut board members payThe Citrus County Chroniclereported on Oct. 27 that the Board of Education is considering raising our county sales tax to get more money for education. Here is an alternate method which may preclude us from a tax increase. I have always been a supporter of public education. I was an elected school board member in Passaic County, New Jersey back in the 1960s. I know in New Jersey and New York being a school board member is a part-time, voluntary position. The boards of education do not pay their members, do not provide private offices and do not have secretarial support as we do here. Secretarial support for the board there is provided by the staff of the superintendent of schools. I recommend the members of the Board of Education for Citrus County donate their stipend to the board of education, and they give up their private offices and secretaries. Perhaps the secretaries could fill a more productive role in the county in one of the departments that claim to be understaffed. Therefore, these expenses would be eliminated from the education budget. Income from rental of the private offices could also be used for education. I understand this would not provide all of the needed funds for education, but it would be a start. Perhaps this would establish a direction for the board of education to pursue to eliminate permanent overhead and better utilize the available funds. Jack Flynn Lecanto T he right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated... Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States Just in case you forgot. There has been, after all, an appalling amount of forgetting where that amendment is concerned. And New York City has become the epicenter of the amnesia. Yes, the stop and frisk policy of questioning and searching people a cop finds suspicious is used elsewhere as well. But it is in the big, bruised apple that the issue now comes to a head. Federal agents recently arrested a New York City cop on charges of violating the civil rights of an African-American man. Officer Michael Daragjati allegedly stopped the man in April and threw him against a parked van to search him. No drugs or weapons were found, but Daragjati reportedly became angry the man questioned his rough treatment and requested the officers name and badge number. So Daragjati ran him in on a charge of resisting arrest. Later, talking on the phone to a friend, he bragged he had fried another n r and it was no big deal. This was overheard by the feds, who had him under surveillance in a separate investigation. Let no one fix his or her mouth to pronounce themselves surprised. Blacks and Hispanics have complained for years about the selective attention they get from police. Giving cops the power to randomly stop and search pedestrians they find suspicious could not help but exacerbate the problem. Last year, about 600,000 people were stopped and frisked in New York. Though blacks and Hispanics account for just over half the citys population, they represent about 85 percent of those stopped. The Center for Constitutional Justice, a civil rights group, says drugs or weapons are turned up in less than 2 percent of those stops. It bears repeating: less than 2 percent. That failure rate suggests at minimum a need to change the standard by which police decide whom to stop. Suspicion obviously isnt cutting it. Daragjatis alleged malfeasance also suggests a crying need for stricter oversight. The argument in defense of stop and frisk can be boiled down to two words: it works. Marc LaVorgna, a spokesman for New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, says crime has been driven to historic lows in part by this tactic. The response to that argument also boils down to two words: So what? The crime rate has been falling for years all over the country, so its hard to single out what effect this particular tactic in this particular town mightve had. But assume it does work. Can that truly be our standard for deciding what is acceptable? If it is, why not allow police to search private homes without warrants? Why not ban private ownership of firearms? These things, too would work. More criminals would be arrested. Fewer people would die. And all it would cost is a few constitutional rights. Most of us are not black or Hispanic, most of us do not live in New York. But all of us have constitutional rights, so all of us have a stake in the drama playing out in our largest city. The Fourth Amendment means what is happening there is wrong. Or it means nothing at all. Write to Leonard Pitts Jr. at 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132 or email@example.com.

Thanks to efforts led by Circuit Court Judges Patricia Thomas and Barbara Gurrola, for 13 years Citrus Countys Family Visitation Center has provided a safe, neutral environment for monitored visits and child exchanges. Since 2000, the Family Visitation Center has occupied a house on Seminole Avenue in Inverness, on the grounds of Citrus Memorial Health System. The center, which provides a home-like, child-friendly environment, supervises more than 700 visits every year. Think about how hard it is for a child to come to grips with wrenching family trauma and adult misbehavior that can include hostility and abuse. And consider the feelings of the child who wants to be with and be loved by both parents, but those parents cant make it be all right again as a family. These children need a compassionate, supportive environment for spending time with adult family members thats safe and where feelings can begin to mend and trust can start to be rebuilt. The Family Visitation Center has provided this very important service. Originally a community-supported effort, in recent years it has been funded primarily through the states social services budget. Now, to no ones particular surprise, the funding axe that has fallen on so many other programs is coming down in this area. Kids Central Inc., which coordinates child protective services for the state in Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Marion and Sumter counties, notified the Family Visitation Center that because of budget cuts its funding would end Dec. 31. Kids Central plans to incorporate visitation services into existing programs, meaning visits in office environments, according to one local visitation center board member. While no details have been shared, we cant imagine it will offer an improvement over whats now available. Citrus Countys Family Visitation Center board members are trying to figure out how to keep the doors open past Dec. 31. That will require significant sponsorship and strong community support; state funding may never return. The Family Visitation Center started as a community effort now is the time for the community to step up and take it back. THE ISSUE: State funding chopped; closure imminent.

And then they complain because people find them and maybe take out some of their belongings. It is your responsibility to watch your purse. Put your purse in the car first and then put your groceries in the car. Because while youre putting your groceries in your car and your purse is behind you, someone very well can pick up and walk off with it then. So be conscious of what youre doing. Put your purse in the car first. That way you dont have to worry about where is your purse if somebody took it or somebody stole your belongings.School boards mistakeIf my understanding is correct, the school board agreed to violate its own policy respecting the distribution of outside materials. All that was required to facilitate this distribution was the propaganda pages be removed from those materials. The fact that the organizations refused to allow that distribution without the propaganda is all the proof that we need that their true purpose was not the distribution of the documents; it was the distribution of the propaganda. As a former teacher, I never thought that passing out those materials was a part of my job, nor was picking them up off the floor afterward, which is where most of them went. The only mistake the school board made in this instance was in agreeing to violate the policy in the first place.Military benefitsIm looking at the Chronicle for today, which is Sunday, Oct. 23, Page A12, the article concerning Military benefits could change. I am embarrassed, disgusted and outraged that our Congress wants to change the medical health insurance for our veterans, for the active people in the service. I have never been in the service never, never but theyre protecting our country and keeping us safe. You can imagine how small our armys going to be now. People are not going to enlist if they cant get what was promised them. Im just disgusted. Bad for businesses Listen, can you hear that sound?

This visitation center has enormous value. It does not state in the article how much it would take financially to keep the center running. The hospital funds the property. A lot of the people involved are volunteers and those who work there are paid very, very little. It seems like theres enough people in this county who care about the benefits of the center that they would be willing to help out with the funding to keep the center open.

Afghanistans first bowling alley open KABUL, Afghanistan In an Afghan capital scarred by years of war, a young Afghan woman has bet $1 million that her countrymen could use a little fun. Located down the street from Kabuls glitziest mall is The Strikers, the countrys first bowling alley and owner Meena Rahmanis gamble on the capitals newest entertainment venue. But more than a place for family fun in a city largely devoid of options, the 12-lane center stands as a reflection of both the countrys hope for the future and the challenge of securing one even as NATOs fight against the Taliban enters its 11th year. We can never compare a bowling center ... in Afghanistan and one ... in the West, Rahmani said. Afghanistan needed a place like this. Aside from the cultural significance of such a center in a country largely lacking entertainment choices, building the bowling alley was a massive undertaking. All the equipment is imported, the engineers came from China and the alley is powered by several industrial-sized generators. The entrance to the alley sits behind blast-resistant steel doors guarded by burly men toting AK-47 assault rifles. From wire reports World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A14 MONDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2011 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressATCHISON, Kan. Crews suspended their search Sunday for three people missing after a thunderous explosion at a Kansas grain elevator killed three workers and hospitalized two others with severe burns. The blast, which shook the ground so hard it was felt into neighboring Missouri, is a harrowing reminder of the dangers workers face inside elevators brimming with highly combustible grain dust at the end of the harvest season. The explosion Saturday night at the elevator in Atchison, about 50 miles northwest of Kansas City, sent an orange fireball into the night sky, shot off a chunk of the grain distribution building directly above the elevator and blew a large hole in the side of the one of its concrete silos. Officials with Bartlett Grain Co., which owns and operates the elevator, decided to temporarily halt the search for the three missing people one worker and two grain inspectors because it was unsafe to be inside the facility, said Atchison City Manager Trey Cocking. Smoke could still be seen billowing from the top, and officials were fearful the building could fall on top of rescue crews. Heavy equipment, federal safety investigators and engineers were expected to arrive later Sunday to assist the crews. Its a fairly dangerous situation. We dont feel comfortable putting fire crews in, Cocking said. He said crews had not given up hope they would find the remaining three alive, although the search was considered a recovery effort. The victims names had not been released by Bartlett Grain as of Sunday evening. One of the missing was Travis Keil, a war veteran who had served as a site inspector for 16 years. His parents, Gary and Ramona Keil, drove from Salina to Atchison, to wait with his three children ages 8, 12 and 15 as crews searched. We have all our prayers working for him, Gary Keil said. Its a parents worst nightmare to go through this. Bartlett Grain President Bill Fellows said in a statement workers were loading a train with corn when the explosion occurred, but the cause was not immediately known. Over the past four decades, there have more than 600 explosions at grain elevators, killing more than 250 people and injuring more than 1,000, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Bombing adds urgency to protect Kabul Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan The weekend suicide bombing of a NATO convoy that killed 17 people in Kabul adds urgency to the U.S.-led coalitions work to expand a security bubble around the Afghan capital. With most of the attacks in Kabul blamed on the Pakistan-based Haqqani network, the latest reinforced U.S. and Afghan demands that Islamabad do more to curb militant activity and sanctuaries on its territory. While there is no specific information linking Saturdays convoy attack to the Haqqani network, investigators say they soon will have evidence the bombing was Haqqani-related, a western diplomat said Sunday. The diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the investigation, said it was very possible the attack was the work of Haqqani fighters, who have ties to al-Qaida and the Taliban. In the brazen midday assault, a suicide bomber rammed a vehicle packed with explosives into an armored coalition bus traveling in the southwest end of the city. Heavily armored military vehicles also were in the convoy, but the bomber targeted the bus, which was carrying troops and civilians contractors. The Haqqanis were the specific focus of two military operations this month that involved tens of thousands of Afghan and NATO troops. They were conducted over nine days in Kabul province, Wardak, Logar and Ghazni provinces south and west of the capital and Paktia, Paktika and Khost provinces along the border. More than 200 insurgents were killed or captured. At least 20 of them had ties to the Haqqani group, including 10 identified as leaders of the network. Marine Gen. John Allen, the top commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, said in a recent interview with The Associated Press the operations against the Haqqanis were conducted in preparation for next years plan to step up operations to keep insurgents from infiltrating across the Pakistani border and into the capital, especially from the south. Official thinks attack related to Haqqani Associated PressWASHINGTON A prominent physicist and skeptic of global warming spent two years trying to find out if mainstream climate scientists were wrong. In the end, he determined they were right: Temperatures really are rising rapidly. The study of the worlds surface temperatures by Richard Muller was partially bankrolled by a foundation connected to global warming deniers. He pursued long-held skeptic theories in analyzing the data. He was spurred to action because of Climategate, a British scandal involving hacked emails of scientists. Yet he found the land is 1.6 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than in the 1950s. Those numbers from Muller, who works at the University of California, Berkeley, and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, match those by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA. He said he went even further back, studying readings from Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. His ultimate finding of a warming world, to be presented at a conference Monday, is no different from what mainstream climate scientists have been saying for decades. Whats different, and why everyone from opinion columnists to cable TVs satirical The Daily Show is paying attention is who is behind the study. One-quarter of the $600,000 to do the research came from the Charles Koch Foundation, whose founder is a major funder of skeptic groups and the conservative tea party movement. The Koch brothers, Charles and David, run a large privately held company involved in oil and other industries, producing sizable greenhouse gas emissions. Mullers research team carefully examined two chief criticisms by skeptics. One is that weather stations are unreliable; the other is that cities, which create heat islands, were skewing the temperature analysis. The skeptics raised valid points and everybody should have been a skeptic two years ago, Muller said in a telephone interview. And now we have confidence that the temperature rise that had previously been reported had been done without bias. Muller said he came into the study with a proper skepticism, something scientists should always have. I was somewhat bothered by the fact that there was not enough skepticism before. Skeptic agrees global warming real after study Associated Press Richard Muller, left, and his daughter, Elizabeth Muller, hold a globe as they talk about their study on climate at their home in Berkeley, Calif. Associated PressSOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. When winters white mixes with autumns orange and gold, nature gets ugly. A freak October noreaster knocked out power to more than 3 million homes and businesses across the Northeast on Sunday in large part because leaves still on the trees caught more snow, overloading branches that snapped and wreaked havoc. Close to 2 feet of snow fell in some areas over the weekend, and it was particularly wet and heavy, making the storm even more damaging. You just have absolute tree carnage with this heavy snow just straining the branches, said National Weather Service spokesman Chris Vaccaro. From Maryland to Maine, officials said it would take days to restore electricity, even though the snow ended Sunday. The storm smashed record snowfall totals for October and worsened as it moved north. Communities in western Massachusetts were among the hardest hit. Snowfall totals topped 27 inches in Plainfield, and nearby Windsor had gotten 26 inches by early Sunday. It was blamed for at least nine deaths, and states of emergency were declared in New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and parts of New York. Roads, rails and airline flights were knocked out, and passengers on a JetBlue flight were stuck on a plane in Hartford, Conn., for more than seven hours. And while children across the region were thrilled to see snow, it also complicated many of their Halloween plans.

McIlroy holed a 2-foot putt for the victory after Kim missed a 3-footer. McIlroy had a chance to win in regulation, but the 22-year-old star from Northern Ireland missed an 8-foot birdie putt. He closed with an even-par 72 to match Kim (69) at 18 under on Lake Malarens Jack Nicklaus-designed Masters course. The $2 million first prize is the richest in golf. The top players, staying in Shanghai another week for the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International, also received appearance money and last place paid $25,000. Because the event isnt sanctioned by a major tour, there were no ranking points at stake. Kim earned $750,000.

L ARRYB UGG CorrespondentLucas Ebert would rather be playing football. Unfortunately, the Seven Rivers senior suffered a back injury, which led him to running cross-country this fall. Seven Rivers cross country coach Adam Jones is not complaining. It turns out that Ebert can run. His best time is 18:50, said Jones. Thats really good. He is very athletic. He is 6-foot-1. He weighs 165 pounds. For as big as he is, he is very musclebound. He would make a good wide receiver. He runs really well for his size. He could maybe play tight end or wide receiver. He would be playing football for us but he has had so many injuries. He had a back injury and all summer had a back brace. He lost weight. It was very hard time for him. That eliminated him from football. He couldnt do anything for four months. He had to quit track and he loves track. Until the beginning of August, he was in a back brace. Ebert had to suffer not only from the injury but missing football. It was rough because I was on the team when I was still injured, Ebert said. I just sat on the sideline. The doctor said I couldnt hit. Ebert has found a silver lining in running cross-country. Its good, he said. It keeps me in shape. It was more enjoyable when I had Sam. Sam has a Player Spotlight: LUCAS EBERT L EADEROFTHEP ACK Bad back forces Ebert into cross country for Warriors See EBERT / Page B2 See NASCAR / Page B3 Smoke Fest Associated PressMARTINSVILLE, Va. On a day when the track saw its fair share of smoke with 18 cautions it was the one who goes by that as his nickname that raced his way to the checkered flag at Martinsville on Sunday. Tony Smoke Stewart passed Jimmie Johnson on a restart with three laps to go Sunday and surged into contention for his third NASCAR Sprint Cup championship with three races remaining. Then, Stewart playfully called out points leader Carl Edwards in a duel to the finish. He better be worried. Thats all Ive got to say, Stewart said of Edwards in Victory Lane, a broad smile spreading across his face. Hes not going to sleep for the next three weeks. The victory was the third for Stewart in the first seven races of the 10-race playoffs, and he was easily the leading benefactor as the points race was significantly jumbled. Stewart moved from 19 points behind leader Edwards and in fourth place to just eight points behind in second as several contenders got caught up in a season-high 18 caution flags. Even Stewart had trouble, at one point having to apologize to race leader Denny Hamlin for racing him hard to stay on the lead lap. And that was with less than 20 laps to go. I was pretty mad all day, but I was the only guy who didnt get in a wreck with somebody, so I was kind of proud of that, Stewart said, adding that his team told him not to be nice. The winning pass, he said, surprised even him. I dont think anybody has ever passed Jimmie Johnson on the outside, he said, crediting crew chief Darian Grubb for making the right calls and Stewart wins at Martinsville, gains on Edwards CHARLES GARDNER /Special to the Chronicle Seven Rivers Lucas Ebert (center) is hoping to advance to regionals with a solid performance this week.

Royal flush Hundreds of thousands turn out for Cards parade Associated PressST. LOUIS A red sea of fans jammed downtown St. Louis Sunday to honor the World Series champion Cardinals and send a clear message to Albert Pujols: Please stay. An official crowd estimate was not immediately available for the parade down the streets of St. Louis and the celebration at Busch Stadium, but city officials expected several hundred thousand, and it was clearly that, if not more. The crowd was so large that people were parking more than two miles away, and interstate highways were jammed near downtown. Pujols drew loud cheers along the parade route and a long standing ovation at the stadium. When asked on the podium if hed like to be back for another celebration next season, he smiled sheepishly and said, Hey, why not? Whether that happens remains to be seen. After 11 Hall of Fame seasons as a Cardinal, Pujols is a free agent for the first time and it isnt clear if the midmarket Cardinals will be able or willing to give a long-term contract to a player who turns 32 before next season, despite his career .328 average, 455 homers and status as a team icon. Pujols pending free agency and a chilly, breezy and overcast afternoon did nothing to dampen the celebratory spirit. People began staking out the good spots many hours before the parade, climbed trees and leaned out office windows for better views. Nearly everyone was dressed in red except for a few in Rams blue who made the short walk from the Edward Jones Dome after the football game. Even the Rams added to the joy of the day, beating New Orleans 31-21 for their first win after an 0-6 start. Tebow, Broncos sacked by Detroit in Denver/ B3

Associated Press Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow had a rough outing in his first appearance back in Denver since being named the starter for the Broncos. The Detroit Lions sacked the former Florida Gators signal caller seven times. Associated PressDENVER Tim Tebow followed up his Miami miracle with a dud in Denver as the Broncos were blown out by the Detroit Lions 45-10 Sunday. The Lions (6-2) sacked Tebow seven times and turned his two turnovers into touchdowns as they snapped a two-game skid. Cornerback Chris Houston had the fourth 100-yard interception return in team history and defensive end Cliff Avril got the sack, the strip and the scoop, rumbling 24 yards into the end zone with the fumbled football as part of Detroits 45-point run after the Broncos (2-5) had taken a 3-0 lead on their first drive. Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch celebrated his sack of Tebow by joining the Tebowing craze, striking a prayerful pose near a prone secondyear quarterback in the first half. Tebow started the phenomenon that went viral last week by dropping to a knee after his dazzling comeback against the Dolphins, when he brought the Broncos back from a 150 deficit in the final three minutes to force overtime, where the team pulled out an 18-15 win. There was no let-up by the Lions, who relished in their taunts of Tebow. Tony Scheffler performed a scaled-down version when he faked the spike, acted like he was going to kneel and put his right hand on his forehead a la Tebow, then spun around and exchanged the Mile High Salute with teammate Calvin Johnson instead. Steelers 25, Patriots 17 PITTSBURGH Ben Roethlisberger passed for 365 yards and two touchdowns as the Pittsburgh Steelers finally found a way to beat Tom Brady and the New England Patriots 25-17 on Sunday. Roethlisberger completed 36 of 50 passes and led the Steelers (6-2) on a series of clock-chewing drives, effectively keeping Brady and the NFLs topranked offense off the field. Pittsburgh held the ball for more than 39 minutes and survived a late rally to win its fourth straight following a 2-2 start. Brady passed for two touchdowns but threw for a season-low 198 yards and couldnt get into any sort of rhythm while losing to the Steelers for just the second time in his career. The Patriots (5-2) drew within six when Brady hit Aaron Hernandez for a 1-yard touchdown pass with 2:35 remaining, but a last-gasp drive ended when Brady was sacked and the ball rolled out of the end zone for a safety with 8 seconds to play. Rams 31, Saints 21 ST. LOUIS Steven Jackson scored two touchdowns and had his first 100-yard rushing game in three seasons. The first win for the Rams (1-6) came two days after the St. Louis Cardinals won the World Series, with manager Tony La Russa and several of his players showing up to support the citys football team. Drew Brees barely kept alive his touchdown pass streak in the final seconds a week after throwing five TDs in a 62-7 rout of the Colts. Brees was intercepted twice, with Darian Stewarts pick and 27-yard return putting the game away with 2:51 to go. The NFC South-leading Saints (5-3) average an NFL-best 35 points but never got going against a defense ranked near the bottom of the league. The Rams had a season-high six sacks after entering the game with just 11. Ravens 30, Cardinals 27 BALTIMORE Billy Cundiff kicked a 25-yard field goal as time expired, Ray Rice scored a career-high three touchdowns, and Baltimore pulled off the biggest comeback in Ravens history. Using a fumble recovery and an 82-yard punt return by Patrick Peterson, Arizona scored three touchdowns during a five-minute span of the second quarter to take a 24-3 lead. Baltimore (5-2) then went on a 24-point run and moved in front 27-24 when Rice scored his third touchdown on the opening play of the fourth quarter. Arizona (1-6) pulled even with a 45-yard field goal by Jay Feely with 8:55 left, but the Ravens won it with a 37-yard, beat-the-clock drive in the final minute. Vikings 24, Panthers 21 CHARLOTTE, N.C. Ryan Longwell kicked a 31-yard field goal with 2:43 left, and Carolinas Olindo Mare missed from the same distance with 26 seconds left that would have tied it. Cam Newton put the Panthers (2-6) in position with a 44-yard completion to Brandon LaFell on fourth-and-15, but Mares kick was wide left and Minnesota (2-6) came away with the win. Adrian Peterson had 162 yards from scrimmage and scored two touchdowns for the Vikings. Christian Ponder won the battle of rookie quarterbacks, completing 18 of 28 passes for 236 yards and one touchdown. Newton threw a season-best three TD passes, but had two costly fumbles on blindside hits that led to a pair of Minnesota touchdowns in the first half. Giants 20, Dolphins 17 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Eli Manning threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Victor Cruz with 5:58 to play to keep Miami winless and perhaps put more pressure on embattled Dolphins coach Tony Sparano. Manning hit 31 of 45 passes for 345 yards and two touchdowns in rallying the Giants from an 11point first-half deficit. Mario Manningham caught the other touchdown, a 7-yard play which got New York (5-2) back into the game late in the first half. Lawrence Tynes kicked two short field goals, and New Yorks defense got four sacks on the Dolphins final two drives. Corey Webster iced it game with his third interception in the last two games. Steve Slaton and Matt Moore (13 of 22 for 138) capped the Dolphins (0-7) first two drives with 1yard runs. Titans 27, Colts 10 NASHVILLE, Tenn. Matt Hasselbeck threw for 224 yards and a touchdown, and Nate Washington scored twice as Tennessee kept Indianapolis winless. Rob Bironas kicked field goals of 51 and 50 yards, and Jason McCourty recovered a blocked punt in the end zone as the Titans (4-3) snapped a two-game skid. Colts quarterback Curtis Painter was sacked twice and threw two interceptions, which were turned into touchdowns by the Titans in their first win over the Colts since Oct. 27, 2008. The Colts (0-8), without Peyton Manning, trailed 20-0 by halftime coming off a 62-7 loss to the New Orleans Saints. The Colts outgained Tennessee 399311, but couldnt overcome 10 penalties for 66 yards. Texans 24, Jaguars 14 HOUSTON Arian Foster rushed for 112 yards and a touchdown, and Houston shut down rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert and the NFLs worst offense. Matt Schaub threw a TD pass and ran for another score for Houston (5-3), off to its best eightgame start. The Texans also took one more step toward the franchises first division title and playoff berth by improving to 3-0 in the AFC South. The Jaguars (2-6) couldnt carry momentum from their surprising 12-7 win over Baltimore on Monday night. Maurice Jones-Drew scored with 5:15 left, but the Texans used nearly the rest of regulation to set up Neil Rackers 39-yard field goal. Gabbert completed 10 of 30 passes for 97 yards with two interceptions. Bengals 34, Seahawks 12 SEATTLE Rookie quarterback Andy Dalton threw a pair of first-half touchdown passes and Brandon Tate returned a punt 56 yards for a touchdown. Dalton tossed TDs of 14 yards to Jerome Simpson and a 43-yarder that dropped into the arms of A.J. Green in the second quarter to give the Bengals (5-2) a 17-3 lead. From there, the Bengals leaned on their impressive defense that bent, but managed to keep Seattle out of the end zone until the fourth quarter. The victory made Marvin Lewis the winningest coach in Bengals history with 65 career victories. Bills 23, Redskins 0 TORONTO Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two touchdowns and the Bills defense had nine sacks over injury-riddled Washington in Buffalos adopted home north of the border. Scott Chandler caught both touchdown passes, including a 15-yarder to open the third quarter, that put Buffalo ahead 20-0. Fred Jackson had 120 yards rushing and 74 receiving in helping the Bills (5-2) get off to their first 4-0 start at home since 1995. The Redskins (3-4) have lost three straight and continue to unravel due to injuries. 49ers 20, Browns 10 SAN FRANCISCO Frank Gore ran for both 125-plus yards and a touchdown in a fourth straight game and Michael Crabtree made his first TD reception of the season. Alex Smith completed 15 of 24 passes for 177 yards, leading the NFC West-leading 49ers (6-1) to their fifth consecutive victory since an overtime loss to the Cowboys in Week 2. For Colt McCoy and the Browns (3-4), its 0-for the Bay Area. They lost two weeks ago in Oakland, then flopped across San Francisco Bay at Candlestick Park. Gore already had 103 yards on 19 carries by halftime, then got the other 7 he needed to pass Roger Craig and move into second place on the franchise rushing list with 7,089. Gore wound up with 134 yards on 31 carries. Mile High salute Detroit sacks Tebow, Broncos; Steelers beat Patriots foot injury. He is a good friend and I miss him a lot. Jones said the school record for cross-country is 18:23 and thats Eberts goal. Luke has to really become mentally tough, said his coach. We have a young team. Luke is often the only one who runs varsity. Ebert will do well to get past the upcoming district. The meets that we run, he does well, said his coach. Gainesville P .K Younger will take all the top spots at district. Sam couldnt get out of the district in the past. The challenge will be getting past P .K. Younger. They have seven Tim Wingers (the Citrus High standout, likely the best male runner in Citrus County). The coach said the Warriors senior wants to attend the University of Florida, calling it Eberts dream school. Ebert said he wants to get into education or physical therapy. He is hoping for a Bright Futures Scholarship. Ebert has a 4.1 weighted grade point average. He is in dual enrollment. He will have part of his freshman course finished before he starts school. Ebert will also play basketball in the winter and track in the spring. Luke played on the varsity basketball team that went to the Elite Eight last year, said his coach. He wont be the kid who gets a lot of points or rebounds. He is a gritty kid. He is a big kid for us. He will do track. He runs the mile and 800 meters. He is a faster runner. The mile is more in his area. He has lived here most of his life. He lives in Crystal River. Ebert has the one quality coaches love most in an athlete. He is a leader, said the coach. Luke and my son both work in third through fifth grade youth group. They are the leaders of those kids on Sunday. He helps lead. He helps in different ways around the school. He helps on the Servant Leadership Team. They do service projects in the community. They help do some community service. I run childrens ministries and community service, Ebert said. I love it. I love the Edge, its for third through fifth graders. We teach them Sunday School. We entertain them and worship with them. EBERTContinued from Page B1
adjustments all race long. I dont think we had the best race car today, by any means, but we had the most determined pit crew. Johnson, for much of the day, looked like he might be the one making a huge gain in the points race, especially as Edwards floundered in the mid-20s and wasnt getting any better. The cautions, which slowed things for 108 laps, also a season high, allowed Johnson to weather a call by crew chief Chad Knaus to stay out when all the leaders behind him pitted for fresh tires with just over 40 laps to go. But he couldnt hold on with Stewart pressing him at the end. I just could not get away from him on the restart, he said, adding that he tried to be cognizant of Stewarts better position in the championship battle. I thought about going in there and leaning on him, move him up, but that is just not the right thing to do. Stewart last won the championship in 2005. Edwards laughed when told of Stewarts challenge. Hes wound up. He won the race. Well see what happens at Texas, Edwards said. I told you guys I thought he was one of the guys that could win this race and be a guy that youd have to beat for the championship and I think hes proving that right now. But yeah, well have fun. Well go race hard. Theyre gonna have to race us, too. Im excited about the next three races. Edwards struggled all day, twice needing the get a free pass as the first car a lap down. He made it pay off the second time, adjusting his car and rallying to finish an unlikely ninth. Thats just a gift, he said. We did not deserve to finish ninth. Given his history at Martinsville, where he has struggled, Edwards felt like hed won. I had become OK with the fact that we were probably going to finish 20th or 25th, he said. I was thinking already about Texas and how we were going to have to go there and everything we were going to do, but my guys stuck with it and we got very, very fortunate. Others deserved much better than what they got, namely Matt Kenseth and Brad Keselowski. They started the day second and third in points, and both were running near the front all day until getting caught up in late accidents. Kenseth finished 31st and Keselowski wound up 17th. It seemed especially harsh for Kenseth, who was doing uncharacteristically well for him on the 0.526-mile oval until tangling with Kyle Busch on lap 464.

M ONDAY, O CTOBER 31, 2011 B3 Associated PressStanfords first win of the season against a ranked team helped Andrew Luck and the Cardinal move up in the BCS standings. While LSU (8-0), Alabama (8-0) and Oklahoma State (8-0) remained locked into the top three spots in the standings released Sunday, Stanford moved up two places to fourth after beating Southern California 56-48 in triple overtime. Boise State (7-0) slipped a spot to fifth, while Clemson (7-1) fell from fifth to 11th after its first loss. LSU and Alabama will play Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Ala., for first place and the inside track to the BCS national championship game. Oklahoma State seems to be in position to win out and reach the title game in New Orleans on Jan. 9. The computer ratings have the Cowboys No. 1. The BCS standings use the Harris poll, the coaches poll and computer ratings to determine which teams play for the national championship. LSU is No. 1 in both polls and Alabama is No. 2 in each. The Tigers and Crimson Tide are tied for the secondbest computer rating. Oklahoma State is No. 3 in the Harris poll and No. 4 in the coaches poll, and Stanford is No. 4 and No. 3. But the difference between the Cowboys (.9310 BCS average) and the Cardinal (.8615) is the computer ratings. Stanford is sixth in the computers because of a weak early season schedule. The Cardinal should be getting a boost from here on out. After a road game Saturday against Pac-12 rival Oregon State, the Cardinal play Oregon, eighth in the BCS standings, at home. They finish with California and Notre Dame at home, and could play in the Pac-12 championship, too probably against Arizona State.

It was man up Cooter Triathlon LARRY BUGG CorrespondentINVERNESS It had to be the Man Up Cooter Triathlon Sunday morning. It wasnt enough that the competitors had to swim, bike and run at Wallace Brooks Park. They had to start the race when the temperatures were in the 50s. There were 176 hardy souls who registered for the race. In the end, John Hovius of Groveland was officially the winner with a time of 54:17. However, Kevin Grogan finished third with a time of 56:19. Grogan has won the race many times but claimed Hovius was drafting. Since there was no triathlon judge to make a ruling Hovius was officially declared the winner. It was a bit cold but it warmed up, said the Australia native. Im a former pro triathlete and I own a company that trains triathletes. The course was good, safe and fast. Gainesvilles Kelly Rooney was the top female with a time of 1:07:17.4. It was super, said Rooney, an engineer. I was hoping to win. The course is flat and fast. Lecanto resident Robert Brockett was able to handle the cold. He finished 30th overall with a 1:06:51. and first in his mens 55-59 age group. Brockett and another triathlete began the Crystal River triathlons years ago. Im glad I did it, Brockett said. It was nice and cool. Homosassas Sam Nall was 42nd (1:08:56) and first in his mens 65-59 group. It felt good and was fun, said Nall. You forget the cold when you get into the race. Triathlon rookie Laura Wingate was 100th with a 1:21.56. She is a teacher at Crystal River High School and loves the triathlons. It was great, Wingate said. I saw some sandhill cranes. I have an artificial knee. The race director liked the way the race finished despite the cold. I think it went well, said race director Chris Moling. We had an unexpected cold sweep in that dropped the temperature 20 degrees. We didnt have as many people as we normally do. I was concerned about possible hypothermia.

Tony Romo was sacked four times and threw an interception to Nnamdi Asomugha as Philadelphia dominated its NFC East rival. The Eagles scored on all five possessions and held the ball for 32:29 out of the first 45 minutes. Vick had 247 yards passing and 50 rushing, and McCoy had 142 yards on the ground. The 196 yards rushing by Philadelphia were more than Dallas had allowed in any game this season. The Eagles entered with the No. 1-ranked rushing offense and the Cowboys had the top-ranked run defense.

Florida LOTTERIES E NTERTAINMENT J AKE C OYLE AP Entertainment WriterNEW YORK The Shrek spinoff Puss in Boots landed on all fours, opening with an estimated $34 million to lead the box office. The DreamWorks 3-D animated film, distributed by Paramount Pictures, proved the popular character voiced by Antonio Banderas was a big enough draw outside the Shrek franchise. The PG-rated Puss in Boots scored with family audiences on the weekend before Halloween, and also drew a large Hispanic crowd, which made up 35 percent of its audience. Though the box office for the top 12 movies was up 7.8 percent from the corresponding weekend last year, it was still affected by both the unseasonable winter storm on the East Coast and the appeal of the Game 7 broadcast of baseballs World Series on Friday night. DreamWorks estimated the storm took off several million from Puss in Boots. The new release on the weekend from 20th Century Fox, the Justin Timberlake sci-fi thriller In Time, was down as much as 20 percent Saturday in markets like New York and Philadelphia. But the largest estimated opening didnt happen in North America. The Adventures of Tintin, which is being distributed overseas by Sony Pictures and Paramount Pictures, opened in 19 international markets and hauled in $55.8 million. The performance-capture 3-D animated film, directed by Steven Spielberg and adapted from the beloved Belgian comic series, was especially popular in France, where its $21.5 million was the largest opening for a non-sequel Hollywood film. The film opens in the U.S. on Dec. 21. Were still waiting for the holiday season to kick in in earnest as we get into November, said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com. The holiday season is going to be very strong at the box office. Paramount also claimed the weekends second top performing movie with the low-budget horror film Paranormal Activity 3. That film took in $18.5 million in its second week of release, bringing its cumulative total to $81.3 million. Paramounts Footloose was the fourth film on the weekend, adding $5.4 million for a three-week total of $38.4 million. In Time opened with $12 million domestically but took in more ($14.5 million) overseas. The biggest disappointment was The Rum Diary, the Hunter S. Thompson adaption starring Johnny Depp. It opened weakly, earning just $5 million, a low figure for a film headlined by Depp and which cost an estimated $50 million to make. But the solid opening for Puss in Boots was much needed for DreamWorks. The company said Tuesday its net income fell by half in the third quarter as its early summer release, Kung Fu Panda 2, did not haul in as much at the box office as last years Shrek Forever After. Reviews and audience reaction have been positive for Puss in Boots. Its release date was moved up a week to essentially give the film more time to run in theaters before other large fall movies are released. It added $17 million internationally, with most of that coming from Russia. We always looked at this as a two-weekend release strategy, so we think weve got a good start on that plan, said Anne Globe, head of worldwide marketing and consumer products at DreamWorks. Being the number one movie and the likely Halloween weekend record-breaker, were well-positioned to go into week two as well as play through the holidays. Associated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C. James Browns charitable trust had withered to just $14,000 and his estate was saddled with more than $20 million in debt before a professional money manager was able to turn it around, an attorney told The Associated Press. Under a complex 2009 settlement, the manager took control of Browns assets from the estates trustees. That manager wiped out the crushing debt and paved the way for thousands of needy students to receive full college scholarships by next year from the charity by cutting deals that put the Godfather of Souls music on national and international commercials for Chanel perfume and Gatorade. The full details of that settlement and the dire condition of Browns estate had previously been a mystery and were provided to the AP by David Black, an attorney for the money manager. And now that deal which gave about half of Browns assets to the trust, a quarter to Browns widow and young son, and the rest to his adult children could be in jeopardy because the ousted trustees claim the deal should never have been approved and should be thrown out. The deal brokered by then-South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster and approved by Circuit Judge Jack Early ended years of fighting among Browns heirs, who came to realize no one would gain without an agreement. The disputes had started almost immediately after Brown died of heart failure on Christmas Day 2006. But the trustees whod been removed, Adele Pope and Robert Buchanan, argue in briefs filed to the South Carolina Supreme Court the attorney general didnt have the authority to push through the settlement and want the whole thing thrown out. The court will hear arguments on the matter Tuesday. Associated PressDYERSVILLE, Iowa The sprawling eastern Iowa cornfields made famous by the movie Field of Dreams are being sold to a company that will preserve the sites baseball legacy, the owners announced Sunday. Don and Becky Lansing said they have accepted an offer from Mike and Denise Stillman and their company, Go the Distance Baseball LLC, which will develop the site near Dyersville as a baseball and softball complex. A purchase price was not disclosed. We worked hard to maintain its wholesome allure, and our success says a lot about our nations love affair with its national pastime, Becky Lansing said in a statement. It truly is a special place. The land has been in Don Lansings family since 1906. The couple put the property up for sale at $5.4 million in May 2010. The parcel includes the two-bedroom house, baseball diamond, six other buildings and 193 acres mostly cornfields from the movie. The film, released in 1989, was based on the book Shoeless Joe by W.P Kinsella and starred Kevin Costner. The site has been a popular tourist destination ever since. The Lansings said earlier this year they had gotten several inquiries about the site but were committed to finding a buyer that would preserve its legacy. The Stillmans plan for the property includes preservation of the existing buildings and development of All-Star Ballpark Heaven, described as a complex including fields for baseball and softball tournaments and an indoor training facility. Go the Distance plans to offer tournaments for teams of players ages 18 and younger, professional-style training and skills competitions. We understand the impact that demographics, market trends and the economy will have on baseball and those who love the game in the next decade, Denise Stillman said. ... We are thrilled to continue the Field of Dreams legacy. As for the Lansings, theyll live a few miles away and make visits to the site, especially in summer when the corn is high. Thats when the field is most magical, Don Lansing said. Field of Dreams property sold, preserved C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Birthday : Youve learned some valuable lessons in the past and you wont repeat the same mistakes in the coming year, so you are now ready to move on to more advanced assignments. Make the most of what is handed to you. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Inviting someone to an informal gathering with friends may not be as thoughtful as you intended. If this person doesnt fit in, it could spoil the fun for everyone. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Make sure you can keep all your commitments, because someone to whom you make a promise will take you at your word and plan his or her entire day around what you say. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Although you may mean well, the way you manage the resources of another may turn out to be a terrible mistake and result in a huge loss. Your intentions are good but irresponsible. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) In trying to complete a specific assignment, you might take on an ally in hopes of finishing it sooner. Sadly, the person you choose could only make matters worse. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) If you have to deal with an assignment that you do not fully understand, dont pretend you can handle it. Dont let your pride inhibit you from requesting the help you sorely need. Aries (March 21-April 19) Put off taking any financial gambles the odds simply arent in your favor for the moment. It would also be smart to prevent anyone else from making a commitment for you. Taurus (April 20-May 20) All the wishing in the world wont make things happen the way you want them to, so if its possible, put off all important scheduled events until another day. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Before you rely on any gossip, check out everything yourself. Regardless of how long it takes to verify something, its vital you dont take at face value what is being said. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If your resources arent being prudently managed, there is a chance you could respond in a way that could be costly at a later date. Take time to figure things out. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Even if you know what changes need to be implemented concerning your family, you could let haste push you into making a major gaffe. Slow down and think carefully before you upset the apple cart. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You should take care not to allow your emotions to influence your judgment. The way things are in the real world and the way you perceive them could be galaxies apart. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Although, many times, business can mix very comfortably with social arrangements, this will not be so at present. Do all you can to keep the two separated.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, O CTOBER 31, 2011 B5 Andre Maurois, a French author who was born in 1885, said, Conversation would be vastly improved by the constant use of four simple words: I do not know. After a bridge deal, when his partner has asked, Why did you do that? how often have you heard someone answer, I do not know? Not often, is my guess. In todays deal, it is easy to go wrong. How should South plan the play in three no-trump after West leads the spade queen to the king? South starts with six top tricks: two spades and four clubs. And since the diamond suit seems good for another four winners, it looks obvious to lead the diamond king, an honor from the shorter side first. However, East takes that and returns a spade. Declarer wins and cashes his diamond jack, getting the bad news. Suddenly, there are only eight winners. And when South plays a heart, West grabs his ace and takes three spade tricks for down one. The right approach is to lead up to the hand with two honors. Declarer should cross to dummy with a club and play a diamond to his king. Then he returns to dummy with another club and repeats the process. If East wins with his ace, South takes two spades, four diamonds and four clubs. If East ducks, South wins with his jack and plays a heart, collecting two spades, one heart, two diamonds and four clubs. What happens if West has A-10-xx of diamonds?

For some time, several of the residents have been talking about a young boy who lives here. The mother, whose husband openly disparages her (and has little respect for women in general), told me her son is routinely exposed to pornography. She said her husbands father took him to a prostitute when he was 12 years old. The husband, apparently, is planning to do the same with his son next year. This family is from a foreign country and another culture. I suggested the mother talk to a counselor. She told me she is too afraid of her husband finding out. I then suggested a social worker and, finally, an attorney. Instead, she wants me to talk to her husband. I told her I am not willing to get involved in a losing battle. However, I feel increasingly concerned about the welfare of this child. Could you give me some guidance? Unwilling To Watch the Titanic Hit an Iceberg Dear Unwilling: Most states have laws on the books that prohibit disseminating obscene material to a child. However, since you have not actually witnessed it and the mother seems reluctant to corroborate, you are in a gray area. We suggest you report this, anonymously, to your local child welfare authorities and ask them to investigate. Dear Annie: I am a 19-year-old college student and a cashier at a restaurant on weekends. I like my job and my bosses, and my regulars are extremely nice and easy to deal with. But now I dread coming to work. One customer comes in every time Im there, and I cannot stand her. She complains constantly and always has something nasty to say about the other customers. Now I find that she is saying negative things about me, as well. Ive tried to ignore her, but its not working. I know I cant tell her off, but Ive had it with her gossip. I was taught that I should stick up for myself and those who are good to me, and I really want to, but I dont know how to say it. I actually tried defending someone she insulted, but she wouldnt back down and gave me a dirty look. How do I handle this? Optimist Sick of a Pessimist Dear Optimist: When you are working, you represent your employers and must treat the customers with respect even when they dont deserve it. It might help to understand that this woman has a bitter, sour personality and undoubtedly treats everyone this way. It is your job to ignore her nasty gossip and remain unfailingly polite. If that is not possible, find out whether you can switch your working hours so you are not present when she is likely to appear. Dear Annie: Green Eyed said her husband is tired after working as a long-distance truck driver and they havent had sex in two years. A few years ago, my husband informed me that he had no sex drive. I didnt understand this because weve been married 30 years and are very close. There was no question of an affair. About six months ago, I read that sleep apnea could cause a loss of sexual desire in men. I urged him to get tested. It turned out he does have sleep apnea and now uses a CPAP His sleep has improved, and he has his sex drive back. Happy Wife Dear Happy: Sleep apnea can cause all sorts of problems. Thank you for mentioning the possibility. Dear Readers: Happy Halloween. Please dress your trick-ortreaters in flame-retardant costumes that dont obstruct walking or vision, and be sure to accompany them.
