A staggering 45 percent of the 1.6 million veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are now seeking compensation for injuries they say are service-related. That is more than double the 21 percent who filed such claims after some other relatively recent wars, top government officials told The Associated Press. Whats more, these new veterans are claiming eight to nine ailments on average, and the most recent ones over the last year are claiming 11 to 14. By comparison, Vietnam veterans claimed less than four and those from World War II and Korea, just two. Problems can be anything from a bad back to hearing loss to posttraumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. Its unclear how much worse off these new veterans are than their predecessors. Government officials and some veterans advocates believe the weak economy is prompting some claims. They say veterans who might have been able to work with certain disabilities may be more inclined to seek benefits now because they lost jobs or cant find any. Aggressive outreach and advocacy efforts also have brought more veterans into the system, which must evaluate each claim to see if it is war-related and rate it as a full or partial disability. Yet as the nation commemorates the more than 6,400 troops who died in post-9/11 wars, the problems of those who survived also draw attention. These new veterans are seeking a level of help the government did not anticipate, and for which there is no special fund set aside to pay. The Department of Veterans Affairs is mired in backlogged claims, but our mission is to take care of whatever the population is, said Allison Hickey, the VAs undersecretary for benefits. We want them to have what their entitlement is. The AP spent three months reviewing records and talking with doctors, government officials and former troops to take stock of the new veterans. They are different in many ways from those who fought Modern vets set record for disability claims DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Mike Ballard, left, gets a hug from Superintendant of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel, right, during his retirement party Friday at the district office. Ballard is retiring after 40 years of consecutive service in the Citrus County School System. Ballard, in his most recent job, was the American History teaching director for the school district. M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterIts time for 100 Citrus County School District employees to put away the magic markers, mops, steno pads and bus keys. Teachers, aides, custodians, secretaries and two principals are included on the list of school district workers who are retiring this year. Schools and offices hosted retirement parties last week as the school year came to a close. Depending on the work assignment, retirements either kick in immediately or July 1. Many spent much of their careers in the school district. Crystal River Primary School Principal Edith Speight is retiring after 33 years serving in various roles at CRPS. I came here in 1979. The building was old then and I was in one of the older rooms, Speight said. While the last day of school was bittersweet, Speight was especially happy to see the fifth-graders move onto middle school. That fifth grade was in kindergarten when I became principal, she said. At Crystal River Middle, business teacher Gordon Gray has taught 32 of his 37 education years at CRMS. I came here for one year. They hooked me, he joked. While Gray said he will miss students, he is looking forward to retirement. Im very happy, he said. Ive been here quite long enough.

During the Vietnam War alone, 33,103 18-year-olds were killed in action. Thirty-one sets of brothers died, three fathers and sons, eight women. On Jan. 31, 1968, there were 245 deaths. For some, these are just numbers. But for the surviving family members, the numbers represent fathers, husbands, brothers, someones son or daughter, MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Bonnie Bixley of Homosassa pauses while paying her respects to her parents, both World War II veterans, prior to the start of the annual Memorial Day Service on Monday morning at Fero Memorial Gardens Cemetery.

Associated PressCHAPEL HILL, N.C. In the trees and grasses of the South, there are a growing number of unwanted visitors that at best are an itchy nuisance and at worst can carry debilitating diseases: Ticks. Public health officials say that numbers of reported cases of diseases like Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever are not yet alarming and have not yet shown a definitive trend upward from a national perspective. But they do worry that more ticks means more of a risk that those diseases will spike. And scientists are finding species of ticks not seen before in the region just ask pediatric nurse Maria Mekeel, who has plucked 37 of the arachnids off herself and her husband over two months of dog walks. The changes can be traced to 2009, when scientists found the Ixodes Affinis tick in North Carolina. The parasite, native to South America, had been previously seen only in coastal Florida and Georgia. That particular tick doesnt bite humans, but it will bite animals. And scientists say a higher rate of disease in animals can make easier for other ticks to transmit to humans. Ticks are spreading, but usually not like wildfire, said Joseph Piseman, chief of tickborne disease activity for the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The spread is kind of slow but sure. Lyme disease is serious: It can cause paralysis, heart palpitations and death in extreme cases. Were not talking about STD rates, but its common enough that people should be concerned, said Charles Apperson, an entomologist who has studied ticks for three decades. There are at least two other types of tick to contend with: The Gulf Coast variety and the Lone Star tick, common in its namesake state of Texas. The Gulf Coast tick, which until recently was not typically found as far north or east as North Carolina, carries a disease similar to the bacteria that causes Rocky Mountain spotted fever. The Lone Star tick carries a flu-like infection, and Apperson said the main reason for its emergence in the region is a larger population of deer for it to feed upon. There is a national trend of an increasing number of ticks. Piseman said the Ixodes Affinis variety has been expanding in New York and Wisconsin, and Lone Star ticks have been spreading across the U.S. for decades. For the most part, scientists are not yet examining why the populations have been spreading, said entomologist Bruce A. Harrison, who studied ticks for the state of North Carolina for nearly 20 years. He hypothesized it may be at least in part caused by climate change. As temperatures change, animals that are food for ticks migrate often because the plants they eat are now growing elsewhere. All of its hooked together, said Harrison, who is studying the migration patterns of animals that ticks feed upon to learn more about how and why the arachnids are spreading. While the CDC hasnt reported a spike in tick-borne diseases, officials in North Carolina have noticed an increase this year compared to a year earlier. Rocky Mountain spotted fever cases are up 50 percent this year, said state public health veterinarianCarl Williams. And while there typically wasnt a single positive Lyme disease test 10 years ago, now there are a few each year, Mekeel said. For now, the best tool is education. Mekeel has put those 37 ticks she plucked off herself and her husband into a petri dish, which she uses to teach schoolchildren about ticks. If kids roll around on the ground, the ticks can latch on in toughto-find spots like hair or the groin area, said Mekeel, who has 22 years of experience as a pediatric nurse. Well have children that will come in with maybe one hundred ticks on them at a time, not always, but it happens, she said. Ive actually had a family that went away on vacation and put their clothes away in the laundry room and came home after a week and their laundry room was covered in ticks that had hatched in their clothes. someones spouse, someones child. As long as this nation has experienced war, Americans have traveled to cemeteries and gravesites to pay honor to fallen soldiers. Although the first known observance of a holiday honoring fallen service members was in Charleston, S.C. on May 1, 1865, in 1966 the federal government declared Waterloo, New York, the official birthplace of our modern-day Memorial Day. On Monday, scores of Citrus County residents, many dressed in patriotic red, white and blue, gathered under cloudy, storm-threatening skies to participate in the 33rd annual Memorial Day Service at Fero Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Beverly Hills. Among those who came to pay tribute was 30-year Air Force veteran Edwin Larock, proudly wearing his dress blues. With a slight shakiness, he saluted as the colors were presented. I come every year to pay respect, he said. I lost friends. World War II Army veteran Frank Ribeiro and his wife, Alice, have attended the annual service since 1985. On Monday, they paid their respect to Alices brother Liberico Coutinho, former U.S. Marine who served in the Pacific during World War II. Its something we did it was a job, Ribeiro said of military service. For retired U.S. Army field artillery officer Tom Green, he had come to pay honor to those who gave us the right to say and write what we want and for me to go to church where I want to go to church. The memorial service itself was less about speeches and more about traditions the parade of colors, the national anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance, the folding of the American flag, the POW/MIA Empty Chair ceremony and helmet benediction, the laying of the wreath, playing of Taps and rifle squad salute. Its been said the most solemn place to be on Memorial Day is at a memorial cemetery such as here at Fero Memorial Gardens, said Jonathan Beard, Hospice of Citrus County chaplain. I can think of only one more solemn place, and that is in the grateful hearts of all mankind. ... Tomorrow and forever we will remember in our hearts those who gave their lives.

Around THE STATE Citrus County Expect delays during traffic shift Motorists who drive through the intersection of County Roads 486 and 491 are advised that there will be a major traffic shift starting Tuesday, May 29. The contractor working on the road-widening project will be shifting traffic to a divided highway alignment. Traffic on both C.R. 486 (Norvell Bryant Highway) and C.R. 491 (Lecanto Highway) will be shifted to the outside lanes of the divided highway. This will allow for work in the median areas and the final layer of asphalt and striping to be completed. During the traffic shift, an off-duty sheriffs deputy will be present to assist with traffic control at the intersection. Motorists should expect delays for most of the day that Tuesday.

Miami Witness: Attacker was chewing mans faceA witness said a naked man chewing on the face of another naked man on a downtown highway ramp kept eating and growled at a police officer who tried to make him stop. Larry Vega told WSVN-TV he was riding his bicycle Saturday afternoon off the MacArthur Causeway into downtown Miami when he saw the savage attack on the bridges off-ramp. The causeway connects downtown Miami with Miami Beach. The guy was, like, tearing him to pieces with his mouth, so I told him, Get off! Vega said. The guy just kept eating the other guy away, like, ripping his skin. Vega flagged down a Miami police officer, who he said repeatedly ordered the attacker to get off the victim. The attacker just picked his head up and growled at the officer, Vega said. As the attack continued, Vega said the officer shot the attacker, who continued chewing the victims face. The officer fired again, killing the attacker. Miami police have released few details about the attack, other than confirming that there had been a fatal officer-involved shooting. Detective William Moreno said Sunday that neither mans identity had been determined. Jacksonville Gov. Scott assesses damage from Beryl Gov. Rick Scott has been assessing the damage left by Tropical Storm Beryl in northeast Florida. Beryl came ashore early Monday near Jacksonville Beach with near-hurricanestrength winds of 70 mph. Scott met Monday afternoon with Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown and other elected officials. Scott said the city was quickly clearing downed trees and power lines. From staff and wire reports Page A3 TUESDAY, MAY 29, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS Citrus Memorial hospital officials are hoping to cut nearly in half the average emergency room visit for patients by attacking two specific areas where wait times are the highest. A report presented to Citrus Memorial Health System officials showed the average ER patient time in April was about five hours. Individual patients may have experienced times much higher or lower, hospital chief executive officer Ryan Beaty said. Beaty said the target is to receive patients for treatment and either discharge them or admit them to the hospital within 2 1/2 hours. According to the report, the average patient time in the ER was about five hours in January and February, and six hours in March. That time is calculated from the moment the patient enters the hospital to the time he leaves or is admitted to a patient room. Most of the time, Beaty said, is not waiting in the emergency room to see a doctor, though that wait often about an hour is too long. Our goal is 30 minutes, he said. We think 30 minutes is the right amount of time. The largest segment of time occurs after the ER physician has determined the patient should be admitted. Beaty said three hours can pass before an attending physician is available to admit the patient. Beaty developed a pair of task forces to look at both time issues, and he is heading up the task force dealing with the admission delay. If I didnt think it was a serious problem I wouldnt be chairing the task force, he said. Beaty broke down ER times into four segments: From patient entering the hospital to triage, where the patient is evaluated by a nurse, is about eight minutes. Beaty said he has no problem with that length of time. From triage to seeing a doctor, the average wait in the emergency room is 56 minutes. Beaty said one task force is looking at ways to reduce that time by half. Doctor seeing patient is about 28 minutes. The remaining time is for diagnostic tests, such as an X-ray or blood work, plus someone to read the results, and admitting the patient. Beaty said the delay occurs because attending physicians are not always available to admit patients. Or, he said, they want emergency-room physicians to conduct medical tests Beaty said could be done after the patient is admitted. Its a very difficult and complicated situation, he said. Beaty said he is meeting with physicians and medical technicians in the hopes they can agree on a solution. A continuing problem, he added, is the number of patients who arrive at the emergency room with a medical condition that could be handled at a walkin clinic. He said about 40 percent of the hospitals 3,400 ER patients each month do not have medical emergencies. Beaty also said the hospital should be a better job giving patients updates on the progress of their ER visit. Weve got to get better communicating with patients, he said. The patient sits out there and nobody tells them anything. Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. Beaty: We need to reduce ER times Ryan Beaty CMH CEO setting goal of 30-minute wait time in ER. N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterIts the bane of golfers and picnickers and the answer to many peoples prayers rain. On Monday, the rain associated with Tropical Storm Beryl that passed over the northern part of Florida Sunday and Monday may have ruined a few Memorial Day outdoor barbecue plans. However, it brought some much-needed relief to the drought-ridden area. According to Paul Close, National Weather Service meteorologist, because of Beryls slow speed, Citrus County could expect to get up to three inches of rain from the storm. Residents from Floral City and Inverness reported some heavy downpours by late Monday morning. Hernando reported only trace amounts. Crystal River weather watcher Richard Papineau reported a light drizzle all day, which made him happy he had just put down grass seed several days earlier. Close said rain from Beryl, which was downgraded to a tropical depression at 11 a.m. Monday, could last through Wednesday, especially if it picks up moisture from the gulf. If that happens, we could get some decent rain, Close said. Chance of rain is 60 percent Tuesday. As for the rest of the week, dont put away your umbrellas. As a cold front moves in, so will a few scattered thunderstorms. Rain chances for Wednesday through Friday are between 30 percent and 40 percent. Close noted that hurricane season doesnt officially start until Friday, although weve already had two named storms, Alberto and Beryl. Next up: Chris and Debby. The outlook is for between nine to 15 named storms this season, he said, adding, but theres nothing out there that were watching right now. To learn more about weather, visit www.weather.gov.

Its dangerously high even though the North Carolina man swallows six different drugs a day. Hypertension may be the nations sneakiest epidemic, a time bomb thats a leading cause of heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure, and one thats growing worse as the population rapidly grows older. Despite an arsenal of drugs, millions of people in the United States cant get their blood pressure down to safe levels. Now, in a high-stakes experiment at dozens of hospitals, scientists are testing a dramatically different approach for the toughest to treat patients, by burning away some overactive nerves deep in the body that can fuel rising blood pressure. To attempt an invasive treatment a catheter is threaded through blood vessels in the groin up to the kidneys reflects doctors frustration with a disease that too often is underrated because people with it dont look or feel sick until a lot of damage has been done. If deadening kidney nerves sounds like a strange way to attack hypertension, consider that nerves in the bodys fight or flight system play a role in signaling kidney functions, which in turn help regulate blood pressure, such as by relaxing or tightening key arteries. If there was a snake in the room, all of our blood pressures would go up, appropriately so, explained interventional cardiologist Dr. Manesh Patel of Duke University, one of more than 60 medical centers around the country studying Medtronic Inc.s nerve-zapping procedure. But sometimes those nerves stay switched on when they shouldnt be, something todays medications cant address. The hope is that destroying a small number of the nerves could calm an overactive system, relaxing arteries and lowering blood pressure. Renal denervation, the procedure being promoted by Minneapolis-based Medtronic and other companies, has its roots in primitive nerve-severing operations performed in the 1950s, which often lowered blood pressure but at the expense of permanently injuring patients. Only in recent years have researchers revisited the technique, after companies developed easy-to-use catheters that can beam radiofrequency waves to burn away specific nerves without damaging the surrounding blood vessel. Its aimed at only the hardest-to-treat patients. In small Medtronic studies, those treated saw the key top number of a blood pressure reading drop an average of 33 points, although they still needed their medications. The companys Symplicity catheter is approved to treat hypertension in Europe and Australia, as are some competitors versions. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration required a more rigorous study, now enrolling more than 500 people, that includes an unusual step to prove if it really works. Some patients receive the real procedure and some get a fake just the catheter, no zapping. Patel describes patients wearing a blindfold and earphones while lying sedated on the treatment table, to ensure they dont know which theyre getting. New approach tested for hard-to-treat hypertension SOURCE: Medtronic, Inc.APNew blood pressure treatment Scientists have found a new way to treat high blood pressure by destroying certain nerves in the kidney: The nerves are zapped via the catheter with radiofrequency waves.

Associated PressNEW YORK Voters who click on President Barack Obamas campaign website are likely to start seeing display ads promoting his re-election bid on their Facebook pages and other sites they visit. Voters searching Google for information about Mitt Romney may notice a 15-second ad promoting the Republican presidential hopeful the next time they watch a video online. The 2012 election could be decided by which campaign is best at exploiting voters Internet data. The Romney and Obama campaigns are spending heavily on television ads and other traditional tools to convey their messages. But strategists say the most important breakthrough this year is the campaigns use of online data to raise money, share information and persuade supporters to vote. The practice, known as microtargeting, has been a staple of product marketing. Now its facing the greatest test of its political impact in the race for the White House. The story of this presidential campaign will be how both sides are using data and algorithms and personalization and math in their marketing, said Adam Berke, president of the digital retargeting company AdRoll. The promise and beauty of it is that its highly measurable its easy to collect data and see whats resonating and not resonating with voters. Campaigns have worked for years to target subsets of voters using commercially available demographic data, ZIP codes, shopping preferences and television viewing habits. But the growing sophistication of data-mining tools has allowed campaigns to dig deeply into voters online habits, giving politicians an unparalleled ability to personalize messages. Officials in both campaigns declined to discuss their digital strategies, but a review of their most recent Federal Election Commission reports shows both are spending heavily on it. The Romney team spent nearly $1 million on digital consulting in April and Obama at least $300,000. Both campaigns have been building their digital operations, but Obamas team, famous for its use of the Internet to raise money and build its grass-roots network in 2008, has a significant edge. Obamas digital staff is far bigger than it was four years ago, bringing aboard engineers and others with backgrounds in statistics and quantitative analysis to assist with the online development. Among other things, the Obama team is using microtargeting to enhance its voter turnout program. The campaign on Wednesday unveiled Dashboard, a new tool for field organizers and volunteers to collect data about voters both online and in person and deliver it back to a centralized campaign database. Romneys campaign will likely receive a digital assist from the Republican National Committee and conservative-leaning independent groups that are working to build databases to target like-minded voters. Television advertising continues to be one of a campaigns largest budget items, but a TV ad is a blunt instrument hitting a large number of people at one time many of whom wont vote or dont support the candidate who is buying the ads. Online microtargeting, by comparison, is far less costly and touches only those the campaign wants to reach. Its used to prevent campaigns from wasting time and money on people who wont vote for them anyway, said Jeff Coleman, a digital developer and former field organizer for Obamas 2008 campaign. Campaigns use microtargeting to identify potential supporters or donors using data gleaned from a range of sources, especially their Internet browsing history. A digital profile of each person is then created, allowing the campaigns to find them online and solicit them for money and support. Online searches offer campaigns the simplest form of targeted advertising. When a voter searches on a candidates name or a keyword that indicates interest in that candidate, campaigns will place ads next to the search. The ads offer a great return on investment because the campaign only has to pay for the ad if the voter clicks on it. By layering additional data about the person who clicked on the ad, such as their gender or geographic location, the campaign can tailor a very specific message to get that persons attention.A8 T UESDAY, M AY 29, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE N ATION 000B8FF www.chronicleonline.com Grand Opening May 18th 000BJ64 000B67A Irrigation Tune-up Special Toll Free 1-877-345-BUSH www.bushhomeservices.com Up to 5 zones Homosassa 621-7700 Crystal River 795-8600 Inverness 860-1037 HOME SERVICES $ 49 99 000B376 Three rescued from remote plane crash site Associated PressBOISE, Idaho Hours after their plane crashed on a steep and snowy mountainside in Idaho, a California fireman, his wife and their daughter were airlifted to safety by National Guard rescuers. The family was en route from California to Mountain Home, Idaho, when their Cessna 172 went down Saturday night, leaving them with head and back injuries, officials said. One of them used a cellphone just after midnight to report that they had survived the crash. A medical helicopter located the wreckage Sunday morning, but whiteout conditions prevented the aircraft crew from carrying out an immediate rescue, said Col. Tim Marsano of the Idaho National Guard. Rescuers who walked through 6-foot snowdrifts and on 60-degree slopes reached the crash site first. They wrapped the family members in blankets and built a fire until a military helicopter could lift them out with a hoist. It was inhospitable for a landing, Marsano said. The use of the helicopter was indispensable for this type of rescue operation. The three were flown one at a time to a landing area about a halfmile from War Eagle Mountain in southwest Idahos Owyhee County. They were later flown to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise, where they remained in stable condition Monday. Its unclear what caused the Cessna to go down. Photos taken by rescuers showed significant damage, including a broken front windshield. Authorities identified the family as Brian Brown of Wilton, Calif., his wife Jayann Brown, and their adult daughter, whose name was not immediately available. They declined to be interviewed Monday, said hospital spokeswoman Elizabeth Duncan. Brian Brown is a captain at the Cosumnes Community Services District Fire Department in Elk Grove, Calif. He is also Deputy Chief of Operation and Training with the nearby volunteer Wilton Fire Protection District. Wilton Fire Chief Tom Dark said the couple was flying with their youngest daughter to Mountain Home to visit their oldest daughter. He was relieved they were in stable condition. That was our first concern, how he and the family were doing, said Dark. Knowing what a good pilot he is, something had to have happened. Dark said it was probably an unusual experience for Brown, a firefighter for more than two decades, to be on the other end of a rescue. When the shoe is on the other foot, its kind of strange, he said. Campaigns dig through online data to target voters Associated Press Members of the Idaho Army National Guard airlift one of three people who were rescued after their small plane crashed on a steep and snowy mountainside in Idaho Saturday night.

Page A10 TUESDAY, MAY 29, 2012 Big govt, big problemsThe letter from John Bassett (Infrastructure bargain, May 19) really got my attention. I sincerely hope John has deep pockets hes going to need them to afford the big government that he advocates. For the record, John, big government is not a concept, its a reality. Its not only a reality in the U.S., but also in Greece. I have to agree with you that Im not particularly enamored with a Mitt-Marco ticket, but for very different reasons. While I find Marco Rubio very intelligent and personable (much like President Obama), I dont believe he has sufficient experience outside of government to be a good senator, much less a president (again, like President Obama). Its too bad that we Americans too often vote for personalities and good looks instead of qualifications and positions on issues. Again, I have to agree with you on the fact that Americas most pressing problem is jobs. Your solution, however, will certainly send us down the same road Greece is on. I am currently reading a book written by Sen. Tom Coburn. The title is The Debt Bomb. He was a member of the Simpson-Bowles Commission and the Gang of Six that attempted to bring the big government spending under control. I rarely agree with everything I read, but he makes more sense than most. For example, he points out that the U.S. Department of Transportation spent $78 billion from 2004 to 2009 on projects other than repair and maintenance of highways and bridges. These projects included $2 billion for bike paths, sidewalks, and facilities, $850 million for landscaping and beautification, $224 million to rehabilitate historic transportation buildings and facilities and $28 million to establish new transportation museums. Now John, if you were part of big government, would you spend $78 billion in taxes on those kinds of projects? Remember, you had to borrow about $31 billion from the Chinese, or others to do it. Buy the book and read it, or check it out at your local library if the county hasnt spent the library money on pay raises. R.M. Sprott Crystal River Publicity stunt That was quite a drug raid on Thursday (May 17) with a caravan of vehicles led by an armored vehicle including many deputies, the SWAT team, a commander and two Captains using flashbang grenades and all led by the sheriff himself. Who were they after? Pablo Escobar? Al Capone? John Dillinger? No, they arrested a 32-year-old woman, her boyfriend and her mother. Half a dozen trained deputies are all that should have been needed for this bust, not the 5th Armored Division and with a Chronicle photographer along. The only thing missing was the white horse the sheriff should have been riding. To use all these assets and with the newspaper photographer is way over the top, and one wonders how much this cost the taxpayers for what amounts to a pre-election photo op for Jeff Dawsy the guy who repeatedly said he was not going to run for the office again. We have an excellent sheriffs department and it does a great job, but this transparent election stunt was unnecessary, a flagrantly obvious publicity stunt for the re-election of Jeff Dawsy, and it wasted taxpayer money when half a dozen deputies could easily have done the job but then there wouldnt have been all that great ink for the Dawsy re-election effort. Harry Cooper Hernando T here will be investigations and already there are lawsuits over the rollout of Facebooks overhyped IPO last week, but no investigation is necessary into the reason for the outrage over the stocks rapid fall. Its called human nature. It is the same characteristic that causes people to believe against staggering odds that they can win the lottery, or score big in Atlantic City or discover a fool-proof system for playing the stock market. It is the familiar get-richquick notion that somehow one can bypass hard work, sound financial planning and win The Big One, retiring to a life of ease. The old maxim Theres a sucker born every minute can be amended in the Internet age. Today, theres a sucker born every second. No matter the teaching of moralists, history and experience, there are still those who believe they have discovered something new, or that they alone have a gift for making money. Facebook was going to create instant millionaires, even billionaires. It did for founder Mark Zuckerberg and a few of his associates, who sold their stock immediately and reaped immediate profits. There is nothing wrong with what they did. Thats business. But shareholders are blaming Zuckerberg and Morgan Stanley, one of the firms handling the IPO sale. Reuters reports the plaintiffs are accusing the defendants of concealing from investors during the IPO marketing process a severe and pronounced reduction in revenue growth forecasts, resulting from increased use of Facebooks app or website through mobile devices. This is like suing a casino because you lost money at the roulette table. Gamblers know, or should know, the risk in betting. The stock market is simply another form of gaming. When investing in an IPO, one is betting the stock will rise and the investor will profit. There are no guarantees. Even a novice investor has probably heard the disclaimer, past performance does not guarantee future results. The problem with moral lessons is they must constantly be relearned. The dot com bubble burst of the s wasnt enough for some people. Big and small scams, some of them advertised on TV, continue to catch the easily duped. Recall the recent rash of gold commercials in which the announcer proclaims that some experts predict gold prices will soon top $3,000 an ounce. Gold prices are down from their historic highs, but the commercials continue to run. How about a reverse mortgage? There are dangers with those, too, but to hear the paid spokesmen talk about them you might think they are the answer to all your financial problems. In fact, they are not for everyone and may cause new and even worse problems. Why dont people learn from history and the experiences of others? Greed is listed among the seven deadly sins for a reason. In the case of those who poured a lot of money into Facebook stock seeking instant wealth, only to see the price plummet, their greed did them in. There are rules about money. Licensed financial advisers as opposed to some of the TV hotshots who recommend stocks inform individuals about responsible investing. But our human nature too often gets in the way of sound judgment and it is that which the flimflam artists, snake oil salesmen and sleight of hand merchants have relied on for generations to fool us into believing they have discovered the fast track to prosperity. Those who lost money in the Facebook IPO have wound up with egg on their faces. They should have known better. Congress now wants to get into the act. It shouldnt. Facebook involved private money. If Congress wants to investigate something, it should examine how it wastes taxpayer money.Readers may email Cal Thomas at tmseditors@tribune.com.

HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member Trust in voter rolls is essential I n a representative democracy, elections are the formal decision-making process by which citizens vote to choose candidates for public office. As the cornerstone for the peaceful transfer of political power, voter trust in the integrity of the electoral process is essential. The U.S. Constitution allows the states to craft the rules for conducting elections with Congress reserving the power to alter their rules. Under Florida law, voters must be U.S. citizens and reside in the state. Also, convicted felons are barred from voting unless they have had their civil rights restored. Key to the integrity of our electoral process is the maintenance of accurate voter rolls by the states 67 supervisors of elections. To enable election supervisors to verify their individual databases against a statewide voter registration base, the state launched the Florida Voter Registration System (FVRS) in 2006. However, its limited data only proved effective for tracking felons and state residents who relocated to other counties. Not until the state tapped into the Social Security Administrations database in February of this year did the statewide data base become an effective tool for identifying deceased voters. Illustrative of its effectiveness, Citrus Countys Supervisor of Elections Office has removed 1,100 deceased voters from its rolls since February. Regrettably, the state has failed to actively push verification of voter citizenship status until recently. While citizenship status is fundamental to the integrity of the electoral process, the timing of the states citizenship push just months before the critical 2012 elections could not have been worse. Given the lingering memory of Floridas 2000 presidential election debacle and the expectation that Florida will be one of the swing states that could determine the 2012 presidential election, the sudden citizenship push has undermined trust in the electoral process by raising skepticism among a number of voters that it is politically motivated. The states rush to send its initial list of more than 2,600 people identified as non-U.S. citizens to county election supervisors further raised skepticism since it was based on old information and was not fully vetted. Not surprisingly, the supervisors found numerous inaccuracies that have shaken their confidence in the data. With the supervisors already in a serious time crunch because of redistricting that has saddled them with changing precinct and district lines, verification of citizenship status at this critical time is an added burden that could adversely impact preparations for the primary and general elections. Without question, a thorough and accurate vetting of voter citizenship status is essential to electoral integrity. Nevertheless, the questions raised by the states ill-timed rush to purge non-U.S. citizens from the voter rolls has served to undermine rather than assure voter trust in Floridas electoral process.

Maybe this gentleman needs to be educated on the environment and impacts of animals becoming extinct. Maybe he would much rather have a bunch of diseased rats running around on his property. You know, you need to learn to respect nature. Rattlesnakes dont go looking to attack anybody, but they will defend themselves. So you need to be careful. Just like if you lived in Africa, youd have to be careful of lions. If you lived in Southeast Asia, youd have to be careful of tigers. Dont just go killing every rattlesnake you see. We need them. Theyre there for a reason.Sliding standardsThe emergency rule that lowered the passing grade for Florida standardized writing tests must have really been something to behold.

before them. More are from the Reserves and National Guard 43 percent of those filing disability claims rather than career military. More of them are women, accounting for 12 percent of those who have sought care through the VA. And some are claiming PTSD due to military sexual trauma. The new veterans have different types of injuries than previous veterans did. Thats partly because improvised bombs have been the main weapon and because body armor and improved battlefield care allowed many of them to survive wounds that in past wars proved fatal. Theyre being kept alive at unprecedented rates, said Dr. David Cifu, the VAs medical rehabilitation chief. More than 95 percent of troops wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan have survived. Larry Bailey II is an example. After tripping a rooftop bomb in Afghanistan last June, the 26-year-old Marine remembers flying into the air, then fellow troops attending to him. I pretty much knew that my legs were gone. My left hand, from what I remember I still had three fingers on it, although they didnt seem right, Bailey said. I looked a few times but then they told me to stop looking. Bailey, who is from Waukegan, Ill., north of Chicago, ended up a triple amputee and expects to get a hand transplant this summer. He is still transitioning from active duty and is not yet a veteran. Just more than half of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans eligible for VA care have used it so far. Of those who have sought VA care: More than 1,600 of them lost a limb; many others lost fingers or toes. At least 156 are blind, and thousands of others have impaired vision. More than 177,000 have hearing loss, and more than 350,000 report tinnitus noise or ringing in the ears. Thousands are disfigured, as many as 200 of them so badly that they may need face transplants. One-quarter of battlefield injuries requiring evacuation included wounds to the face or jaw, one study found. The numbers are pretty staggering, said Dr. Bohdan Pomahac, a surgeon at Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston who has done four face transplants on non-military patients and expects to start doing them soon on veterans. Others have invisible wounds. More than 400,000 of these new veterans have been treated by the VA for a mental health problem, most commonly, PTSD. Tens of thousands of veterans suffered traumatic brain injury, or TBI mostly mild concussions from bomb blasts and doctors dont know whats in store for them long-term. Cifu, of the VA, said roughly 20 percent of active duty troops suffered concussions, but only one-third of them have symptoms lasting beyond a few months. Thats still a big number, and its very rare that someone has just a single concussion, said David Hovda, director of the UCLA Brain Injury Research Center. Suffering multiple concussions, or one soon after another, raises the risk of long-term problems. A brain injury also makes the brain more susceptible to PTSD, he said. On a more mundane level, many new veterans have back, shoulder and knee problems, aggravated by carrying heavy packs and wearing the body armor that helped keep them alive. One recent study found that 19 percent required orthopedic surgery consultations and 4 percent needed surgery after returning from combat. All of this adds up to more disability claims, which for years have been coming in faster than the government can handle them. The average wait to get a new one processed grows longer each month and is now about eight months time that a frustrated, injured veteran might spend with no income. More than 560,000 claims are backlogged older than 125 days. The VAs benefits chief, Hickey, gave these reasons: Sheer volume. Disability claims from all veterans soared from 888,000 in 2008 to 1.3 million in 2011. Last years included more than 230,000 new claims from Vietnam veterans because of a change in what conditions can be considered related to Agent Orange exposure. Those complex, 50-year-old cases took more than a third of available staff, she said. High number of ailments per claim. When a veteran claims 11 to 14 problems, each one requires due diligence a medical evaluation and proof that it is service-related, Hickey said. A new mandate to handle the oldest cases first. Because these tend to be the most complex, they have monopolized staff and pushed up average processing time on new claims, she said. Outmoded systems. The VA is streamlining and going to electronic records, but for now, We have 4.4 million case files sitting around 56 regional offices that we have to work with; that slows us down significantly, Hickey said. Barry Jesinoski, executive director of Disabled American Veterans, called Hickeys efforts commendable, but said: The VA has a long way to go to meet veterans needs. Even before the surge in Agent Orange cases, VA officials were already at a place that was unacceptable on backlogged claims, he said. He and VA officials agree that the economy is motivating some claims. His group helps veterans file them, and he said that sometimes when veterans already getting benefits come in to file additional claims, Well say, Is your back worse? and theyll say, No, I just lost my job. Jesinoski does believe these veterans have more mental problems, especially from multiple deployments. You just cant keep sending people into war five, six or seven times and expect that theyre going to come home just fine, he said. For taxpayers, the ordeal is just beginning. With any war, the cost of caring for veterans rises for several decades and peaks 30 to 40 years later, when diseases of aging are more common, said Harvard economist Linda Bilmes. She estimates the health care and disability costs of the recent wars at $600 billion to $900 billion. This is a huge number and theres no money set aside, she said. Unless we take steps now into some kind of fund that will grow over time, its very plausible many people will feel we cant afford these benefits we overpromised. How would that play to these veterans, who all volunteered and now expect the government to keep its end of the bargain? The deal was, if you get wounded, were going to supply this level of support, Bilmes said. Right now, theres a lot of sympathy and a lot of people want to help. But memories are short and times change.

The youngest person ever to qualify for the National Spelling Bee was running around in a stream with a friend, hunting for rocks. Suddenly, she came charging up the bank and headed straight for her mother. Hold on to that basalt, Lori Anne Madison said in a bossy 6-year-olds voice, and do not drop it. Go away, her mother said playfully. Sorina Madison held on to the rock nonetheless, and soon was carrying more basalt and a nice hunk of quartz. I cant carry the entire park, she eventually told Lori Anne. Never mind. By then Lori Anne had joined up with more friends and had taken on a different quest, searching for snails, slugs, tadpoles, water striders, baby snakes and more as they splashed in the waters on a sunny day at the Scotts Run Nature Preserve in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. Oh my gosh, what is it? A water worm. A water worm! Its alive, said Lori Anne. I need it in my collection. Its wonderful. She is blonde and adorable and talks at 100 mph. In the past few weeks, she has won major awards in both swimming and math, but one accomplishment above all has made her an overnight national celebrity: This week, the precocious girl from Lake Ridge, Va., will be onstage with youngsters more than twice her age and size as one of 278 spellers who have qualified for the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Shes like a teenager in a 6-year-old body, Sorina said. Her brain, she understands things way ahead of her age. Its hard to argue with that, especially after spending a couple of hours with her. Theres been no need for Lori Annes parents to push her to do anything because shes already way out in front dragging them along. Some kids are ahead of the curve physically, mentally or socially from a very young age. Lori Anne is the rare exception who defies the norms in every category. She hit all her milestones early, walking and talking well before others in her playgroup. She was reading before she was 2. She swims four times a week, keeping pace with 10-year-old boys, and wants to be in the Olympics. When her mother tried to enroll her in a private school for the gifted, the headmaster said Lori Anne was just way too smart to accommodate and needed to be home-schooled. She out-argues both of us, and my husband is a trial lawyer, Sorina said with a laugh. No one is expecting Lori Anne to win the national bee this year. Just being there is a unique accomplishment. Asked how she thinks shell do, Lori Anne simply answered great and kept on hunting.

Joyce Connolly and her daughters left their home in Hurricane, W.Va., to head south for a Memorial Day beach vacation and ended up in the center of Tropical Storm Beryl. While it left little damage after sweeping ashore with 70 mph winds around midnight Monday in Jacksonville, Fla., the storm still wrecked much of Connollys trip. She skipped a graduation because powerful winds kept her and her daughters from venturing past the beach boardwalk when the storm approached Sunday. And she postponed their drive home Monday as Beryl, downgraded to a tropical depression, continued to dump rain near the Georgia-Florida state line. It definitely changed our vacation to unfortunate circumstances that were not happy with. But you just have to live with it, said Connolly, who at least found the irony of her hometowns name pretty funny. Beach trips, backyard barbecues and graveside Memorial Day observances got a good soaking in southeastern Georgia and northern Florida. Beach lifeguards turned swimmers away from the ocean because of dangerous rip currents from Jacksonville to Tybee Island, Georgias largest public beach 140 miles to the north. Skip Sasser, who oversees the islands lifeguards as its fire chief, said beach traffic was unusually thin for a holiday. The ocean was declared off-limits to swimmers for a second day in a row. Its been raining intermittently, so its chased a lot of them off, Sasser said. There was a lot of traffic this morning heading westbound out of Tybee. Veterans groups, meanwhile, carried out outdoor Memorial Day ceremonies despite the grim forecast. At Savannahs historic Bonaventure Cemetery, American Legion members worked through a downpour to make sure its plot for veterans had a small American flag planted by each headstone. When we were setting up, I had a different shirt on and I got soaked to the skin. My socks and my underwear probably are, too, said Jim Grismer, commander of American Legion Post 135 in Savannah. I had so many people trying to talk me into moving it inside. But I said then you cant have the live firing salute and the flag raising. The rain paused just as a crowd of 100 people began arriving. Robert Schulz, an 80-year-old who served in the Marines in the Korean War, held a folded umbrella in one hand as he saluted with the other during the service. Schulz said he and his wife briefly considered skipping the ceremony for the first time in 10 years. I said it would be terrible if nobody showed up, Barbara Schulz said. We had to come for our veterans. Aside from ruining holiday plans, the rain was welcome on the Georgia coast for bringing some relief from persistent drought. According to the state climatologists office, as of May 1, rainfall in Savannah was 15 inches below normal for the past 12 months. Windy and wet Obama says Vietnam veterans too often denigrated President pays tribute to war heroes Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama paid tribute Monday to the men and women who have died defending America, pointing to Vietnam veterans as an under appreciated and sometimes maligned group of war heroes who remained true to their nation despite an unwelcome homecoming. You were sometimes blamed for the misdeeds of a few, Obama said at the Vietnam War Memorial. You came home and were sometimes denigrated when you should have been celebrated. It was a national shame, a disgrace that should have never happened. Even though some Americans turned their backs on you, you never turned your back on America, Obama said. Marking Memorial Day at both the black granite wall honoring more than 58,000 soldiers who died in the Vietnam War and earlier at Arlington National Cemetery across the Potomac River from the capital, Obama noted for the first time in nine years, Americans are not fighting and dying in Iraq, and the nation was winding down its role in the conflict in Afghanistan. After a decade under the dark cloud of war, we can see the light of the new day on the horizon, Obama said to an audience gathered at the Arlington amphitheater lined with American flags under a warm, brilliant sun. In this election year, Obama said the nation must remain committed to providing for the families of fallen soldiers and help returning service members seeking a job, higher education or health care benefits. As long as Im president, we will make sure you and your loved ones will receive the benefits youve earned and the respect you deserve, Obama said. America will be there for you. Obama said sending troops into harms way was the most wrenching decision that I have to make. And I can promise you I will never do so unless its absolutely necessary.

Explosion rocks Nairobi shops; 16 wounded Associated PressNAIROBI, Kenya An explosion ripped through a building full of small shops in downtown Nairobi on Monday, wounding at least 16 people, the police commissioner said. He could not immediately say what caused the blast. The force of the explosion ripped apart the one-story buildings aluminum roof, but a high-rise building with a glass exterior right next to the blast did not appear to sustain major damage. Police Commissioner Mathew Iteere said at least 16 people were wounded. Another high-ranking police official said there were no obvious signs that the blast was caused by a terrorists bomb. No ball bearings or nails lethal shrapnel packed into bombs were found, and officials were investigating the possibility a faulty electrical line caused the explosion. The official said he could not be quoted by name. People with bloody wounds received medical care right after the blast, as authorities tried to usher hundreds of people in the street away from the scene. TV images showed thick black smoke billowing out of the building in the moments after the blast, which happened shortly after 1 p.m. Al-Shabab militants from neighboring Somalia have long threatened to carry out substantial attacks in Kenya following Kenyas decision last October to send troops into Somalia to pursue al-Shabab militants. Popes butler vows to help Vatican scandal probe Associated PressVATICAN CITY The biggest scandal to rock the Vatican in decades widened Monday when the popes butler, arrested for allegedly having confidential documents in his home, agreed to cooperate with investigators raising the specter that higher-ranking ecclesial heads may soon roll. Few believe butler Paolo Gabriele worked alone to leak dozens of documents shedding light on power struggles, corruption and intrigue inside the highest levels of the Catholic Church. The leaks have tormented the Vatican for months and painted a picture of a church hierarchy in utter disarray. Gabriele, the popes personal butler since 2006, was arrested Wednesday evening after Holy See documents were found inside his Vatican City apartment, adding an unfathomable Hollywood twist to the already sordid Vatileaks scandal. He remains in custody in a Vatican detention facility, accused of theft, and has met with his wife and lawyers. Gabrieles lawyer, Carlo Fusco, said Monday his client was very serene and calm, despite the whirlwind of speculation surrounding his arrest. He said Gabriele himself had told the Vatican judge investigating the case that he would respond to all the questions and will collaborate with investigators to ascertain the truth. Italian media reported Monday a cardinal is suspected of playing a major role in the scandal. However, the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, denied the reports categorically. He said many Vatican officials were being questioned but insisted there is no cardinal under suspicion. But Lombardi acknowledged the investigation continues. He also dismissed as pure fantasy a rash of other unsourced reports about the investigation in the Italian media, which have been on a frenzy ever since reports of Gabrieles detention emerged Friday.

The Gators are ranked No. 1 in the NCAA tournament. Associated PressNEW YORK Florida heads into the NCAA tournament as college baseballs top team. The Gators appreciate the honor, but theyre interested only in finishing No. 1 at the College World Series. I think that we have a good team, coach Kevin OSullivan said. I think that we had a good year. Id agree with everybody that I dont think we have played our best yet, which is encouraging. Florida (42-18) was selected Monday as the top seed for the 64-team tournament and will host one of 16 four-team, doubleelimination regionals that begin Friday. That was a very close vote, said Kyle Kallander, chairman of the Division I baseball committee. The committee really discussed at length who deserved to be that No. 1 overall. There were several deserving teams. The other national seeds, in order, are: UCLA, Florida State, Baylor, Oregon, North Carolina, LSU and two-time defending College World Series champion South Carolina. We had four teams that were in serious consideration for that last top national seed, that No. 8 seed, Kallander said. It was very competitive in the evaluation process. Kallander said the Gators overall body of work including a 21-10 record against top 25 teams put them in front of the field. History has not been kind to the No. 1 overall seeds, though. Only once has a top seed gone on to win the College World Series: Miami in 1999, the first year the NCAA went to its current tournament format.

OK, Mark, whats going on? he said into the phone, only to hear the voice on the other end reply. No, this is really Jessica.

PETERSBURG Chris Sale nearly made White Sox history in a dominating victory. Sale struck out a career-high 15, Adam Dunn hit a two-run homer and Chicago extended its winning streak to six games with a 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday. A special day ... it was awesome, said Sale, who is from nearby Lakeland. Its nice, especially growing up and being kind of a Tampa Bay Rays fan. My uncle brought me here to the first game. It was the day after my birthday. Sale (6-2) gave up one run, three hits and walked two in 7 1/3 innings while finishing one strikeout shy of the team record. Jack Harshman struck out 16 against Boston on July 25, 1954. I didnt know what the record was, Sale said. Thats something Im not really worried about. I knew I had quite a few there late in the game, but its the same thing just like any other day. You go out there and you try not to focus on all the external stuff that might get in the way of you doing your job. Sale struck out his 15th batter, Jose Molina, with a runner on third and two outs in the seventh. He retired his final batter, Rich Thompson, on a grounder to lead off the eighth. You know what, that guy could have punched out a lot of teams 15 times, Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. His stuff was that good. The entire package, what he did, was good. A lot of awareness out there. The 15 strikeouts was the most ever by one pitcher at Tropicana Field. Hes special, White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. I think thats what youre seeing is him being able to kind of manage the game and go for a strikeout and get ahead and all of those things. After Jesse Crain got the final two outs in the eighth, Addison Reed pitched the ninth for his fifth save and complete a threehitter. Chicago took a 2-1 lead during the sixth when Gordon Beckham singled and scored on Dunns 16th homer. Dunn has gone deep 11 times in May. You get some guys on and he can do a lot of damage, Ventura said. It was just one of those that he hits perfect, and he probably didnt even feel it. He hit it that good. Matt Moore (1-5) allowed two runs and four hits over seven innings for Tampa Bay. The lefthander, who had given up 19 runs over 19 2/3 innings in his previous four starts, struck out 10 and walked one. Thats two of the best young pitchers (who) have come through in a long time, Dunn said. You had to kind of focus and not get caught up in what they were doing.

By the end, many probably left the speedway wondering what had happened in many of the races. A usual night of carnage and destruction plagued a few of the classes, and left the fans on the edge of their seats. Todd Brown (23) and Randy Anderson (4) brought 17 Super Late Models to the green from the front row for the 35-lap feature. Anderson jumped out to the early lead before a Lap 2 caution slowed the field. Anderson led the restart with Brown in second and Jim Smith (3) in third. Anderson pulled away while Herb Neumann Jr. (98) slipped by Smith for third before a caution flew on Lap 3. Once back to green, Anderson led, with Neumann finding his way by Brown for second at lap 10. Smith then moved to third. Neumann set his sights on the leader and passed Anderson on the inside of Turn 1 to take the lead at lap 20. The top three survived five more mid-race cautions before a Lap 26 incident changed the running order. Ninth place-starter Drew Brannon (82) marched to the front of the field and began to pressure third place-runner Smith. Brannon and Smith made contact, sending Smith into the front stretch wall, and the rest of the top 10 scattering behind them. Fifth place-runner Brannen Hester (77), Billy Smith (00), John Coffman (58) and Scott Grossenbacher (09) were involved in the mayhem. Coffman and Hester were done for the night, the rest rejoined the field. Once back to green, Neumann drove away from Anderson to take his second feature of the 2012 season. Following him to the line were Anderson in second, and Dale Sanders in third. Heat-race winners were Hester and Jim Smith. Street StocksA short 10-car Street Stock feature saw Jonna Hughes (12) and Ray Lyon (25) on the front row for their 20-lap event. Hughes took the lead on Lap 1, but contact between her and James Peters (5) ended Hughes night. The field was reset with David Kingsbury (73) on the pole. Kingsbury took the lead, but Kenny May (10), Bubba Martone (98) and Curtis Flanagan (3) all passed him. Martone connected with Mays rear bumper several times in the corners, eventually sending him spinning to the infield off Turn 4. May then intentionally wrecked Martone, was blackflagged and disqualified for the night. Martone returned to the lead for the restart, but the steering in his car seemed to be damaged. Curtis Flanagan (3) took over the top spot. Martone was unable to avoid a later wreck between Dora Thorne (48) and Austin Hughes (68). All three drivers were finished. Flanagan survived a green, white, checkered finish to take his seventh feature win. Following him were Tim Alexander (63) in second and James Peters (5) in third. Martone was the heat-race winner. Pure StocksTen Pure Stocks registered for the 20-lap feature event. Karlin Ray (72) followed last weeks win by moving to the lead on lap 12 from his ninth starting position. But on Lap 17, Ray was sideways, almost spinning out. Eugene Malverty (123) moved by Ray for the lead. Malverty took his second feature followed by Ray in second and Happy Florian (65) in third. Malverty was the heat-race winner. Modified Mini Stocks James Ellis (98) jumped out to lead the Modified Mini Stock division, before Clint Foley (7) made a late winning pass to take his sixth victory. Ellis was second with Phil Edwards third. Foley was the heat-race winner.Street Stocks Figure 8sThirteen Street Stock Figure 8s saw Pnut Higginbotham (5) take his first win in several years. Higginbotham took advantage of his front-row starting position and never look back. Ronnie Schrefiels (6) followed in second position with Thomas Peet (85) in third.HornetsAfter winning his first race a few weeks ago, Daryl Veltman (55) took the victory again over Bryan Kuhn (6) and Chris Hennessey (32) in third. Upcoming races This Saturday night the Florida United Promoters Late Models Series will make its first visit of 2012. The states top Late Model pilots will be here for a 100-lap feature.

IndyCar hit the jackpot with the Indianapolis 500: a record number of lead changes, a thrilling final dash for the trophy, a popular podium finish and 500 miles of racing under a blistering sun. What a tremendous race. We couldnt have asked for anything better for our marquee event, IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard said Monday. It had the right the mix of competition and entertainment as we showcased our sport on an international stage. Hopefully, people liked what they saw, learned what we already know and will come back for more this season. Thats the hard sell for the attention-starved series. Despite good racing, strong story lines and colorful characters, IndyCar cant seem to grow its fan base. The overnight rating for Sundays race on ABC was a 4.1, smack in the middle of the 4.3 from last year and the 4.0 in 2010. But theres enough buzz now that IndyCar is optimistic its fans will tune in next Sunday when the series shifts to a street course for the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix. The race, the first open-wheel championship event in Detroit since 2008, will be on ABC. I hope people watch the other races and see what we do week in and week out, said Dario Franchitti, who picked up his third Indianapolis 500 victory Sunday. The crowds have been good, and obviously we need to keep working on the TV thing, keep pushing on that. But weve had some cracking races this year. I think theyve all been pretty good. This Indy 500 swung the pendulum on an already strong start to the season. Franchitti and teammate Scott Dixon swapped the lead 10 times in the final 60 laps, and Tony Kanaan used a jaw-dropping surge through the field to jump from fifth to first on a late restart. The popular Brazilian led seven late laps in front of a crowd roaring its approval. On Franchittis final pass of Dixon, he pulled Takuma Sato with him and the Japanese driver wedged himself between the Chip Ganassi teammates. It prevented Dixon from setting up his attempted pass for the win. The opportunity instead went to Sato, who went for it in dramatic fashion. Sato hugged the bottom of the race track, pulled alongside Franchitti through the first turn, but failed to complete the pass either because their wheels touched or he simply bungled the move. He spun hard into the outside wall, barely avoiding wrecking Franchitti at the same time, and the Scotsman broke free for the win.

In the eighth, Astros shortstop Jed Lowrie fielded Dexter Fowlers two-out roller and flipped to second baseman Jose Altuve, who wasnt expecting the throw. The ball hit pinch-runner Jeremy Guthries right foot and bounced into center field, leaving runners at second and third. Fowler was credited with a single and Lowrie got an error.

Fernando Rodriguez (1-5) was the loser.AMERICAN LEAGUE Red Sox 7, Tigers 4BOSTON Felix Doubront pitched six innings of four-hit ball, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia homered.

Associated Press Miami Heat forward LeBron James shoots over the Boston Celtics Paul Pierce during the first half of Game 1 of the NBA Eastern Conference finals Monday in Miami. C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S COREBOARD B4 T UESDAY, M AY 29, 2012 The White Sox had scored at least nine runs in each of their previous four games. Chicagos Paul Konerko, who had his average drop four points to .395, went 1 for 4. He flared an oppositefield single to right during the ninth that extended his hitting streak to 14 games. Ben Zobrist singled, stole second and scored to put the Rays up 1-0 on Jose Lobatons RBI single in the fourth. Lobaton was activated from the 15-day disabled list before the game. He was out since April 13 due to right shoulder soreness. Zobrist, playing in right field, took a hit away from A.J. Pierzynski in the second with a diving catch. Tampa Bays B.J. Upton went 0 for 4, including three strikeouts against Sale, and had his 10-game winning streak end. win three or more consecutive national titles. South Carolina opens against Manhattan (33-25), the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament champion. Florida and South Carolina are among a tournament field-leading eight Southeastern Conference teams, including Arkansas, Kentucky, LSU, Mississippi, Mississippi State and Vanderbilt. The Atlantic Coast Conference is second with seven teams: Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Miami, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Virginia. The 16 regional winners move on to the best-of-three super regionals. Those eight winners advance to the College World Series, which begins June 15 in Omaha, Neb., at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha. Miami (36-21) is in the tournament for the 40th straight year, extending its own record, while Florida State is making its 35th consecutive appearance. Dayton (31-28) and Samford (39-21) are making their tournament debuts, while Valparaiso (35-23) will play in a regional for the first time since 1968. I dont think our guys will be intimidated at all, said Valparaiso coach Tracy Woodson, a former major leaguer. Weve already played some great teams on our schedule this year. Among those not in this year are Texas (30-22), which last missed out in 1998, and Utah Valley (4712), which led Division I in wins but had a low RPI. Kallander said both were among 12 schools considered for the last couple of spots. Utah Valley plays in the Great West Conference, which doesnt receive an automatic berth to the NCAA tournament. The Wolverines won 40 of their last 41 games, and 45 of their last 49. Weve done everything we can to control our destiny, coach Eric Madsen said after Utah Valley won its third straight Great West tournament. Forty out of 41, thats incredible. Kallander, commissioner of the Big South Conference, said the lack of quality non-conference opponents was a key factor in the Wolverines being left out. They did very well against that schedule, so what youve got to do is go out in your non-conference schedule and schedule stronger, and of course, you have to have some success against that schedule, Kallander said. They did have a couple of good wins, no doubt, and scheduled a few very good teams in the schedule, but it wasnt quite enough for the committee. Two teams with losing records made the field of 64 Creighton (26-28) and Sacred Heart (25-30) by winning their conference tournaments.

From staff reports Associated PressMIAMI A big early Miami lead was wasted. Once the Heat took control again, they simply ran away from the Boston Celtics. And the NBA finals are now three wins away for LeBron James and the Heat. James scored 32 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 10 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and the Heat beat the Celtics 93-79 on Monday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. Shane Battier, playing in the conference finals for the first time, scored 10 points and had 10 rebounds for the Heat, who wasted an early 11-point first-half lead before running away to break a halftime tie. Miami outrebounded the Celtics 48-33, and blocked 11 Boston shots. Kevin Garnett scored 23 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Boston, which got 16 points, nine rebounds and seven assists from Rajon Rondo and 12 points from Paul Pierce. Game 2 is Wednesday night in Miami. Its the third straight year the Heat and Celtics have met in the playoffs, the third straight year James has seen his postseason path go through Boston as well the first of those matchups coming in 2010, his final run with Cleveland. Each of those came in the first or second rounds, never one round away from the NBA finals. And while both sides would say theres a long way to go in this series, Game 1 winners have a decided edge in any best-of-seven, the conference final being no exception. In the most recent 10 postseasons, teams with 1-0 leads in conference finals have advanced 15 out of 20 times. One of the five instances of a team rallying from a one-game deficit was last year, when Miami ousted Chicago in five games. Last seasons MiamiBoston series ended with James scoring the final 10 points of Game 5, and the start of this years matchup had him putting on another offensive display. He had 13 points in the first quarter two more than the entire Celtics roster and Miami ran out to a 21-11 lead after the opening period. Garnett made three of his four shots in the quarter, while everyone else in Boston green was 2 for 16 from the floor. The 11 points matched the lowest output by any team in the opening quarter this postseason. The other team to manage that few was San Antonio, which then dropped 32 on the Los Angeles Clippers in the second quarter of their game on May 19. The Celtics response was even better. Boston scored 35 in the second quarter, erasing what was an 11-point deficit early in the period by scoring 27 points in the final 8:46 of the half to pull into a 46all tie. Rondo, Garnett and Pierce combined to score 23 points in the quarter, looking absolutely vintage, nearperfect offensive execution getting to Miami time and time again. And the Celtics comeback happened even while they got hit with three technical fouls in the second quarter, plus Allen missing four first-half free throws matching his career-worst for an entire game. In the end, it went down as merely a one-quarter lapse for Miami. Another technical foul, this one on Rondo, came in the third quarter, likely born from frustration as the Heat started to roll again. With the game tied at 50, Rondo missed three shots in a 31-second span early in the third, the last of those getting blocked by Battier who hit a 3-pointer 11 seconds later. It started a 9-2 Miami burst, including a touchdown pass from Wade to James Wade grabbed the rebound of a miss by Pierce, spun and delivered a 90-foot pass to the reigning MVP for an easy score. Miami led by as many as 13 late in the third, before taking a 72-61 lead into the fourth. James scored 10 more in the third, Boston went cold again shooting just 27 percent in the period. James 32 lift Heat to win Miami runs away with Game 1

Associated Press Brian Baker prepares to serve to Nicolas Almagro during the final of the Nice ATP tennis tournament Saturday in Nice, southern France. top-seeded woman to lose in the first round of the French Open since the tournament started allowing foreign entrants in 1925. But she needed every bit of fortitude to right things while overcoming a whopping 60 unforced errors, far more than her 32 winners a terrible ratio for anyone, let alone a player who considers herself a title contender. Bad days happen, Azarenka said with a shrug. Unfortunately, today I had way more mistakes than I usually do. The top-seeded man, Novak Djokovic, limited his miscues to when he spoke to the crowd in French after a victory Monday, never even facing a break point while beating Potito Starace of Italy 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-1. It wasnt that successful, Djokovic said referring to his on-court postmatch interview, not his play, as he began his bid to become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win a fourth consecutive Grand Slam title. Im trying to take it slowly. Im running out of words, he said. Who knows? Maybe (in the) next two weeks, Ill learn something more. It wouldnt be much of a surprise if hes around long enough to face 16-time major champion Roger Federer in the semifinals. They met in Paris at that stage a year ago, when Federer ended Djokovics 43-match winning streak. The sports other leading man, defending champion Rafael Nadal, starts his try for a record seventh French Open title on Tuesday, facing Simone Bolelli of Italy. Day 3 also features fourthseeded Andy Murray, 13time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams and threetime major winner Maria Sharapova. Williams normally leads the way for the United States at big tournaments, but now she will try to keep up her end of the bargain: All 10 American women who played Sunday or Monday won, giving the country its largest contingent in the second round at Roland Garros since 11 made it in 2003. Other winners Monday included defending champion Li Na and No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska, who next meets seven-time major champion Venus Williams. Federer dealt with a few blips, getting broken once in each set, including when serving for the match for the first time. But he defeated Tobias Kamke of Germany 6-2, 7-5, 6-3 to tie Jimmy Connors Open era record of 233 Grand Slam match wins. Theyre never easy, those first rounds, you know. Last thing you want is to go down a set or (get) in a tough situation, but I was able to stay ahead in the first set. Had bits of ups and downs on my serve, Federer said. But overall, Im happy Im through. Thats what I look at in the end.

Mattek-Sands won 6-4, 6-3. Associated PressPARIS American women are 10 for 10 so far at the French Open, giving the country its most representatives in the Grand Slam tournaments second round since 11 made it in 2003. And there are two more U.S. women still waiting to play first-round matches Tuesday, including 13-time major champion Serena Williams. Its quite a change from recent times. In five of the previous seven years, including 2011, only four American women managed to make it out of the first round at Roland Garros, where they can be flummoxed by the slow, red clay that Europeans and South Americans know better. A couple years ago, everyone was asking me the opposite questions, on why American tennis was so bad. I told them, I think we have some great young players coming up; its just the WTA right now has a lot of depth, said Bethanie Mattek-Sands, who eliminated 12th-seeded Sabine Lisicki of Germany 6-4, 6-3 on Monday. It really shows that some of the Americans are coming through, playing tough, grinding it out here on the clay, added Mattek-Sands, who is based in Phoenix. And its awesome. Lauren Davis, an 18-yearold qualifier from Boca Raton, Fla., surprised 30thseeded Mona Barthel of Germany 6-1, 6-1 on Monday, when all six U.S. women who played were winners. The others: Vania King beat Galina Voskoboeva of Kazakhstan 6-4, 6-2; Sloane Stephens defeated Ekaterina Makarova of Russia 6-4, 7-6 (6); Varvara Lepchenko beat Ksenia Pervak of Kazakhstan 6-2, 6-7 (6), 6-4; and Christina McHale edged Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands 2-6, 6-4, 6-4. Were all pushing each other at the same time, said McHale, a 20-year-old from Englewood Cliffs, N.J. Its like a healthy competitiveness, I think. Venus Williams, Melanie Oudin, Irina Falconi and Alexa Glatch won Sunday. For Davis, it was her first victory in three career Grand Slam matches. She played cleanly, making only 11 unforced errors. Barthel had 44, including 12 double-faults. The 5-foot-2 Davis finished last season ranked 319th, and she entered this week 162nd. The secret to success against Barthel? Her backhand is so sick, so I tried to keep it away from her backhand more ... and just kind of grind, Davis said. Now she faces McHale, and Mattek-Sands meets Stephens. I was just talking to Christina in the locker room. Im like, Who do you play? Shes like, I play Lauren Davis. Im like, Oh, my God. I play Bethanie. So all the Americans are playing Americans, but its good that well have people in the third round, said Stephens, a 19year-old from Coral Springs, Fla., whose late father, John M. Stephens, was the 1988 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. Everyone always says that were not good on clay, Stephens said. Thatll prove em wrong. Last year, King and MattekSands reached the French Opens third round. But no U.S. woman other than a Williams sister has made it as far as the fourth round since 2005.

FRENCH Continued from Page B1 Baker wins first main-draw match Associated PressPARIS It probably would have been hard to imagine back when Brian Baker reached the 2003 junior final at the French Open that it would take him nearly a decade to make it to the mens tournament. The 27-year-old from Nashville, Tenn., finally completed that journey Monday and won his main-draw debut at Roland Garros, beating 2002 Wimbledon semifinalist Xavier Malisse of Belgium 6-3, 7-6 (1), 7-6 (5), the latest step in a hardto-believe comeback. Its definitely something I didnt envision, Id say, a couple months ago or a year ago, Baker said. But the last couple weeks, my game has come around. Feeling a lot healthier and definitely playing some good tennis. He was cheered on by his parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, and his girlfriend Monday. Well worth the trip. Baker was forced off the tour for 6 1/2 years because of a series of operations that began in November 2005 and included work on his right elbow, both hips the left one twice and a sports hernia. Never really had that one moment where I thought about throwing in the towel. But you have to be realistic when you have that many surgeries, that maybe tennis isnt in the cards anymore, and that youve got to see what else is out there outside of tennis, Baker said. But never had that one time where I was ready to say: Im done. Maybe close to that, but never all the way out. Baker earned a French Open wild card from the U.S. Tennis Association by virtue of results at lowlevel clay-court events in the United States. He hadnt played in the main draw of a tour-level tournament after a 2005 U.S. Open loss to Malisse hows that for coincidence? until last week in Nice, where he went through qualifying to get into the field, then went all the way to the final.

report said more outreach is needed to ensure that kinshipcare families know their options. Theyre trying to navigate this system on their own, and theres not a lot of knowledge about what benefits theyre eligible for, said Mark Testa, a professor at the University of North Carolina School of Social Work. Theyre actually doing a heroic job in keeping these kids part of the family, and they deserve our gratitude, he said. Without them, our foster care system would be overwhelmed. Donna Butts of the advocacy group Generations United estimated that kinship caregivers save U.S. taxpayers more than $6 billion a year by sparing state and local governments the cost of foster care. We shouldnt then just leave them alone, Butts said. They need information, they need support, they need respite. Both the children and the caregivers need help. Among the problems encountered by kinship caregivers, according to the Casey report: Many of them take on children who were abused or neglected, and are coping with the trauma of family separation. They sometimes lack the legal authority for enrolling a child in school or obtaining medical care. Though most kinship families are eligible for federal aid through Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, many caregivers are unaware of this option or are reluctant to apply because of perceived stigma. Their eligibility for financial aid may be constricted by licensing requirements that were designed for foster parents and arent always appropriate for kinship families. Such requirements might include foster-parent training programs and regulations pertaining to the square footage and window size in bedrooms. Under federal law, unless they can meet the same hypertechnical licensing requirements as strangers, they are not, in fact, entitled to the help that total strangers get, said Richard Wexler of the National Coalition for Child Protection Reform. Among the agencies viewed as a leader in the field is greater Pittsburghs Allegheny County Department of Human Services, which makes kinship arrangements for more than half of its children in foster care. Its much less traumatic if they can go to someone they know and love, and who knows them, as opposed to going to strangers, no matter how well-intentioned that stranger is, said the departments director, Marc Cherna. The department policy is to pay kinship caregivers the same rates as other foster parents, and work with them on how to optimize the childrens long-term prospects. According to the Casey report, one in 11 American children lives in kinship care for at least three consecutive months. For black children, the ratio is one in five. Morrisella Middleton, 62, of Baltimore, raised two of her grandchildren for many years while also working full-time as supervisor of an assisted living facility. The childrens mother Middletons daughter had struggled with drug problems and their father died of cancer. It wasnt easy. Middleton went on disability after incurring congestive heart failure and hypertension, and relied almost entirely on Social Security benefits. Her grandson, Shane, also had chronic health problems related to lead poisoning, she said. I did not get the money like people do who are foster parents, Middleton said. The road has not been easy, but the reward has been so very satisfying. I see the fruits of my labors. Shane, now 19, recently began a job as a retail stock clerk. The granddaughter, LaQuanna, is 24 and works as a pharmacy technician. Would Middleton advise others to consider kinship care? If you love these children and you want them to have a chance, then you dont have a choice, she said. In somebody elses home, or in a group facility, theyre not going to get the chance that you could give them.

we need not to be ashamed of a grieving period that goes on beyond a few days. You cant avoid the pain of the loss. The only thing you can do is deal with it and move on, and everybody has different ways of doing that and different periods of time in which to achieve that. Just as if you were to have surgery, you need proper time to heal from the loss of a loved one. And many times, the patience and understanding come from within, some may heal quicker and move on, others not, but everyone has their own pace of healing from an event like this. During this period, you are going to feel a roller coaster of emotions: sadness, isolation, frustration, hopelessness and depression. All of these emotions can drain your energy and ability to function and do normal dayto-day activities. The next thing you ask is, When is this ever going to end? It will never end. It will only get better with time because each day and each week and each year, there will be certain events, people you see, or calendar events that will remind you of your loss. Sometimes, events like anniversaries are actually worse after the initial loss. All of these feelings will never go away. You just need time to recover. One of the natural ways of doing so is getting back into your daily routine to help distract your mind. This is good to some degree, but you will also need to face the pain and deal with it. Sometimes dealing with these situations with the help of family and friends and even support groups are very valuable. If you are religious, your faith can provide a strong support system for you, as well. Even learning or reading about other peoples losses can help guide you through this difficult time. Venting your emotions is another good source of release and healing. Crying is good. Venting your anger in a safe and nondestructive manner also is helpful. Finding outlets such as sports will help you discover that your anger was simply an emotional response to the event that occurred and looking back doesnt look reasonable. This is because your emotions are from your heart and you are not necessarily being rational or using your head. That is OK. Grieving and the road to recovery from a loss is a sometimes slow task that takes time, but each day you will make more and more progress. I believe that over time, the recollection of your loss will be replaced by pleasant memories of your time spent with the individual. You can do it. Everybody has done it. As they say, we live a terminal disease called life and, like it or not, grief and loss of someone and grieving is a part of that process.

A bone marrow biopsy is an outpatient procedure done in our office. He tolerated the procedure well. When I see a patient with low platelets, common causes include: ITP the body is destroying your own platelets due to immune dysfunction. MDS where bone marrow is not making enough platelets due to a bone marrow problem commonly from aging. Occasionally a side effect of medications. Surprisingly, in my patient, the bone marrow biopsy showed multiple myeloma. This is a rare cancer of the bone marrow. Plasma cells help your body fight infection by producing proteins called antibodies. In multiple myeloma, plasma cells grow out of control in the bone marrow and form tumors in the areas of solid bone. The growth of these bone tumors makes it harder for the bone marrow to make healthy blood cells and platelets. That is why my patients platelet count was low. This is highly treatable cancer and patients tend to live many years. There are many new advances in management of multiple myeloma. Newer and promising drugs are coming out every year. Two new promising drugs are likely to be approved by the FDA in less than one year. The story of this patient teaches us that we should not ignore blood counts. I commonly hear statements such as, I have always been anemic, or, If it is not broken, do not fix it, etc. Remember, low blood counts or many such other benign-appearing signs are the bodys way of telling us that something is wrong. If we ignore the early signs, we can miss some serious problems. Always listen to your body. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

GANDHI Continued from Page C1 as the only teeth saved. If the canines have enough solid tooth left, the dentist can do a root canal in each of them and build them up with white fillings. If they are badly broken down, a crown may be appropriate. Once the teeth have been restored, your dentist can make a partial denture, using them for support. If you have additional finances available, the dentist can make a bridge from one canine to the other, while still replacing the back teeth with a partial denture. If even additional money is available, you can actually have clasp-less partial dentures made. Still another thought is to use the canines as though they are implants. There are many methods of retention available to hold a denture to them, just as you would if implants were used. I know I have made this sound simple; however, with each plan mentioned above, the skill needed increases for not only the dentist, but also the lab the dentist uses. I have seen cases like this work out beautifully, but I have also seen them turn out horribly. I would suggest you take this column to your dentist and ask him or her if this can work for you. It would be worth your while to discuss this, as the cost for it is in between that which your dentist suggested and the implants. You remembering one of my old columns may have paid off for you. I hope things work out as best they can for you. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a Homosassa dentist. Send your questions to 4805 S.

Infections with certain viruses, bacteria and parasites are one of the biggest and preventable causes of cancer worldwide. While the impact in the United States may not be as great, from a standpoint of the planet as a whole, this is huge. Application of existing public-health methods for infection prevention, such as vaccination, safer injection practices or antibiotic treatments, could have a substantial effect on future burden and death rate of cancer worldwide. The researchers in this study performed a systematic evaluation to estimate the percentage of cancers worldwide that were caused by infections in eight regions. They calculated the percentage of all new cancers that could have been prevented through intervention on a specific exposure to a virus or bacteria. They obtained data from various sources, including GLOBOCAN statistics, had estimated the incidence rates of 27 cancers in 184 countries, and calculated that, in 2008 worldwide, about 16 percent of all cancers were linked to infections. The incidence rate of infection-related cancers in developing countries was almost three times higher, 22.9 percent, in comparison with 7.4 percent in developed countries. Researchers noted a considerable difference in the fraction of infection-related cancers between different regions, ranging from 3.3 percent in Australia and New Zealand to 32.7 percent in sub-Saharan Africa. Many infection-related cancers are preventable, particularly those associated with human papillomaviruses (HPV), Helicobacter pylori infection of the stomach, and hepatitis B (HBV) and C viruses (HCV). The researchers added that, according to estimates, these four main infections together are responsible for 1.9 million cancer cases, the majority of which are stomach, liver and cervical cancers, with cervical cancer accounting for about half of the infection-related cancer burden in women, while liver and stomach cancers accounted for more than 80 percent of cancers in men. Now, this is not really a new finding to the oncology world. The 2011 United Nations meeting on noncommunicable diseases highlighted the growing global agenda for prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases. But, although cancer is considered a major noncommunicable disease, a sizable proportion of cancer worldwide is caused by infectious agents, and with work toward better sanitary practices and more access to antibiotic treatment, this can be lowered. This research shows the potential for preventive and therapeutic programs in less developed countries, and the potential to significantly reduce the global burden of cancer and the vast disparities across regions and countries. Since effective and relatively low-cost vaccines for HPV and HBV are available, increasing coverage should be a priority for health systems worldwide, especially in the underdeveloped, highburden countries.

M oon Over Buffalo, written by K en Ludwig and directed by David Easter, out at the Art Center Theater, was a howling success. If we could only bottle the energy of those spirited players, wed be qualified millionaires. The story that evolved was all about an aging troupe of theater circuit players on tour in Buffalo, N.Y. With outlandish dramatic flair, the curtain opens and they are rehearsing. Aspiring for a Frank Capra movie contract, they systematically confuse Capras presence at their performances, the tipsy lead confuses his Cyrano de Bergerac and Private Lives roles to the point of hilarious mayhem. Deadpan wit by Delores Elwood as Ethel, the grandmother of the group, kept us in stitches. Her observations of s Buffalo, N.Y., were uncanny: If Buffalo wasnt named after an animal, it wouldnt have anything going for it. Its like living in an asylum on the guards day off. The twists and turns of the plot kept our thinking caps humming as marriages were at stake, an assumed affair threatened the show being able to go on, an additional upcoming marriage undecided by a romantic interlude by the bride-to-be. Granddaughter Roz, played by Jessica Watson, is betrothed to Howard, played by Jon Govoni, while still in the picture is Paul, played by Frank Meyer, who is a former boyfriend who doesnt want to let Roz go. Kudos to the costume designers for George, as Cyrano, complete with the Pinocchio nose, and Ethel in a stunning white formal gown. Alan Jones, as the attorney representing the stars, has his hands full as tempers flare and one-upmanship reigns among the stars, in grand comedic style. Sharon Vetter, as Eileen, was superb as the other woman who supposedly had an affair with the George character played by Jim Wellborn. Wellborn, as George, the tipsy, appearing-and-disappearing star of the theater group, and Tina Soldo, as Charlotte, his wife, were flamboyance personified in their mastery of their roles. Every ounce of physical and emotional stamina was professionally presented by the two. The love-hate relationship endured and in the end, as the two missed out on the Ronald Coleman role out in Capras Hollywood, Charlotte cries on Georges shoulder. Memorable vignettes include: Howard attempting to portray George S. Patton. The panic portrayed by the players when it is 30 minutes until curtain and everyone is looking for George. George pleading with Charlotte to reconsider and not leave the players stranded in the belief that Capra was in the audience considering the group for his movie. The incomparable Elwood as Ethel, wisecracking her way into the audiences hearts with the roll of her eyes and her perfected stage body language that sets her apart from others. The perfect timing of the players as they continually enter and exit the various sets doors. The play, with its Murphys Law (everything that can go wrong, goes wrong) premise, was entertainment at its finest. We laughed all the way home.

HFWCF has chartered a plane from Allegiant Air to fly approximately 75 elderly veterans from St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport to Washington on a one-day trip. The flight will leave at 7 a.m. Tuesday, June 12, and return at 7:30 p.m. to a public Welcome Home parade. While in Washington, stops are planned at the Iwo Jima and World War II memorials. The veterans will also be able to visit the Lincoln, Washington, Korea and Vietnam memorials. Their chartered buses will pass Arlington National Cemetery, the Navy, Air Force and Jefferson memorials, the Capitol, Pentagon and other federal buildings. Each veteran will have a guardian angel. The guardians must be between 18 and 75 years of age and in good physical condition. In 2011, the West Central Florida Honor Flight flew 241 veterans to Washington. The first flight of 2012 in April was made possible by a donation from Progress Energy Florida. The veterans fly free; however, the guardians are asked to make a donation of at least $400 to the operating fund of HFWCF to help cover the $60,000 operating costs. The local chapter is a nonprofit organization. All donations are tax deductible. Persons interested in serving as a guardian should go to www.honor flightwcf.org, print the guardian application and mail it to P .O. Box 55661, St. Petersburg, FL 33732.

Thrumston not only is providing advice, but also came up with the stores consignment tagline that some things are too good to give away. Although tax-deductible donations are welcome with free pickup of bulk donations, the Home Again Resale Store is also seeking inventory under a 50/50 consignment. Were looking for special items valued at over $50 to offer our customers, said Hervey Gerber, Nature Coast president. Net sales from the operation will all go to support kids programs at the Central Ridge Boys & Girls Club.

C8 T UESDAY, M AY 29, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. This deal was the second one dealt by my mens group in Florida. How should the defense and play go in four hearts by South? The first three calls were clear-cut. Then North should have made a negative double, indicating length in both minors (the unbid suits). His actual two-club response promised at least 10 points (or a fabulous nine). East raised to two spades. Afterward, I mentioned the Law of Total Tricks. Without game-going values in a competitive auction, bid as high as the combined number of trumps. So, if East had the chance to bid three spades on the next round, he should have taken it to indicate his fourth spade, not promise more high-card power. When South sensibly plunged into four hearts, West was not tempted to bid four spades for two reasons: He had a good chance to defeat the contract, and the vulnerability was unfavorable. (Four spades doubled would have gone down two, minus 500, if South had received a diamond ruff.) West led the club ace, which had to be a singleton, given the auction and the dummy. In this situation, East was supposed to send a suit-preference signal to show where his entry lay. Here, with the diamond king and no spade ace, East had to play his club three, the lowest asking for the lower-ranking of the other two side suits. Now West should continue with a low diamond to Easts king. West ruffs the second club but has no winning continuation. When he leads a spade to remove the dummy entry to the clubs, South ruffs a diamond, ruffs a spade, ruffs a diamond, draws trumps, and claims.

For my husbands sake, every time Kate comes to town, I tell her shes welcome to stay with us. Kate doesnt always behave herself. I try to blow off her offensive comments, but its hard. My husband says, My sister is stupid. Dont let her get to you. But her last visit was the final straw. She asked whether my 2-year-old son is normal because he has a big head. Annie, he looks like his father, who is tall and broadshouldered. So is my brother, who played high school sports. She asked this repeatedly, and each time, I calmly told her that his pediatrician says hes perfectly fine. Then she had the gall to ask my husband whether our son was actually his. Kate also will make nasty remarks such as, Did you serve bad bacon? It tastes funny, or You dont wash your floor. Its sticky. Id love to tell Kate exactly how I feel about her rude comments, but I know the consequences wont be worth it. I already ignore her phone calls and reply only by text. Im tired of crying to my husband over Kates nasty behavior. I can tell that he is getting irritated with me. What do I do? Ready To Explode in N.D Dear Ready : First, stop complaining to your husband. Its tiresome and accomplishes nothing positive. Instead, learn better ways to handle Kate. When she complains about your sticky floors, reply, Oh, Im so sorry. Heres a mop. If she dislikes the food, smile and tell her, Sorry I cant make what you like. Feel free to do the cooking. When she insults your sons size, nicely say, Hes so athletic looking, like his father and uncle. The trick is to remain wonderfully polite, sweet and perfectly innocent while you drive her nuts. It might help to understand that Kate says these things because she is jealous. We feel sorry for her. Dear Annie: Please publish this letter to my friends and relatives who do not own computers: I dont mind helping you, but there are rules: I am not going to research a term paper for your child. If I have printed out information, please store it wisely. I may not have saved it to the computer I am currently using. If you have access to the Internet, please look things up yourself before asking me. A dear relative recently became angry when I told her I no longer have the family tree information she wanted, nor did I have time to re-create the file. Also, paper and printer ink are expensive. I do freelance writing and editing and need my supplies for that. It would be nice if people would reimburse me for some of the expense or buy a pack of paper once in a while. Computer Geek Dear Geek: You ought to attach this letter to any work you do for others so they understand your rules. Those who ask for favors should not expect you to pay for the privilege. Dear Annie: Lost My Appetite better get used to being around diabetics unless she plans to lock herself up in the house forever. Type 1 diabetes is an epidemic, and people with the disease arent going to wait to eat. They need to time their insulin precisely. Doing it in the bathroom doesnt always work because some bathrooms are disgusting and many dont have a counter to put your supplies on. I think her friends will be thankful that Lost stays home. Sterling, Mass. Dear Sterling: We heard from a great many diabetics who took issue with Losts position. Watching someone inject insulin is not pleasant. However, when one has close friends or family members with diabetes, it requires that you put a lid on your sensitivities. Otherwise, simply show up later.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES Across the vast Pacific, the mighty bluefin tuna carried radioactive contamination that leaked from Japans crippled nuclear plant to the shores of the United States 6,000 miles away the first time a huge migrating fish has been shown to carry radioactivity such a distance. We were frankly kind of startled, said Nicholas Fisher, one of the researchers reporting the findings online Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The levels of radioactive cesium were 10 times higher than the amount measured in tuna off the California coast in previous years. But even so, thats still far below safe-to-eat limits set by the U.S. and Japanese governments. Previously, smaller fish and plankton were found with elevated levels of radiation in Japanese waters after a magnitude-9 earthquake in March 2011 triggered a tsunami that badly damaged the Fukushima Daiichi reactors. But scientists did not expect the nuclear fallout to linger in huge fish that sail the world because such fish can metabolize and shed radioactive substances. One of the largest and speediest fish, Pacific bluefin tuna can grow to 10 feet and weigh more than 1,000 pounds. They spawn off the Japan coast and swim east at breakneck speed to school in waters off California and the tip of Baja California, Mexico. Five months after the Fukushima disaster, Fisher of Stony Brook University in New York and a team decided to test Pacific bluefin that were caught off the coast of San Diego. To their surprise, tissue samples from all 15 tuna captured contained levels of two radioactive substances ceisum-134 and cesium-137 that were higher than in previous catches. To rule out the possibility that the radiation was carried by ocean currents or deposited in the sea through the atmosphere, the team also analyzed yellowfin tuna, found in the eastern Pacific, and bluefin that migrated to Southern California before the nuclear crisis. They found no trace of cesium-134 and only background levels of cesium-137 left over from nuclear weapons testing in the 1960s. The results are unequivocal. Fukushima was the source, said Ken Buesseler of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, who had no role in the research. Bluefin tuna absorbed radioactive cesium from swimming in contaminated waters and feeding on contaminated prey such as krill and squid, the scientists said. As the predators made the journey east, they shed some of the radiation through metabolism and as they grew larger. Even so, they werent able to completely flush out all the contamination from their system. Thats a big ocean. To swim across it and still retain these radionuclides is pretty amazing, Fisher said. Pacific bluefin tuna are prized in Japan where a thin slice of the tender red meat prepared as sushi can fetch $24 per piece at top Tokyo restaurants. Japanese consume 80 percent of the worlds Pacific and Atlantic bluefin tuna. The real test of how radioactivity affects tuna populations comes this summer when researchers planned to repeat the study with a larger number of samples. Bluefin tuna that journeyed last year were exposed to radiation for about a month. The upcoming travelers have been swimming in radioactive waters for a longer period. How this will affect concentrations of contamination remains to be seen. Now that scientists know that bluefin tuna can transport radiation, they also want to track the movements of other migratory species including sea turtles, sharks and seabirds.

A staggering 45 percent of the 1.6 million veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are now seeking compensation for injuries they say are service-related. That is more than double the 21 percent who filed such claims after some other relatively recent wars, top government officials told The Associated Press. Whats more, these new veterans are claiming eight to nine ailments on average, and the most recent ones over the last year are claiming 11 to 14. By comparison, Vietnam veterans claimed less than four and those from World War II and Korea, just two. Problems can be anything from a bad back to hearing loss to posttraumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. Its unclear how much worse off these new veterans are than their predecessors. Government officials and some veterans advocates believe the weak economy is prompting some claims. They say veterans who might have been able to work with certain disabilities may be more inclined to seek benefits now because they lost jobs or cant find any. Aggressive outreach and advocacy efforts also have brought more veterans into the system, which must evaluate each claim to see if it is war-related and rate it as a full or partial disability. Yet as the nation commemorates the more than 6,400 troops who died in post-9/11 wars, the problems of those who survived also draw attention. These new veterans are seeking a level of help the government did not anticipate, and for which there is no special fund set aside to pay. The Department of Veterans Affairs is mired in backlogged claims, but our mission is to take care of whatever the population is, said Allison Hickey, the VAs undersecretary for benefits. We want them to have what their entitlement is. The AP spent three months reviewing records and talking with doctors, government officials and former troops to take stock of the new veterans. They are different in many ways from those who fought Modern vets set record for disability claims DAVE SIGLER/ChronicleMike Ballard, left, gets a hug from Superintendant of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel, right, during his retirement party Friday at the district office. Ballard is retiring after 40 years of consecutive service in the Citrus County School System. Ballard, in his most recent job, was the American History teaching director for the school district. MIKEWRIGHT Staff WriterIts time for 100 Citrus County School District employees to put away the magic markers, mops, steno pads and bus keys. Teachers, aides, custodians, secretaries and two principals are included on the list of school district workers who are retiring this year. Schools and offices hosted retirement parties last week as the school year came to a close. Depending on the work assignment, retirements either kick in immediately or July 1. Many spent much of their careers in the school district. Crystal River Primary School Principal Edith Speight is retiring after 33 years serving in various roles at CRPS. I came here in 1979. The building was old then and I was in one of the older rooms, Speight said. While the last day of school was bittersweet, Speight was especially happy to see the fifth-graders move onto middle school. That fifth grade was in kindergarten when I became principal, she said.

Associated PressCHAPEL HILL, N.C. In the trees and grasses of the South, there are a growing number of unwanted visitors that at best are an itchy nuisance and at worst can carry debilitating diseases: Ticks. Public health officials say that numbers of reported cases of diseases like Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever are not yet alarming and have not yet shown a definitive trend upward from a national perspective. But they do worry that more ticks means more of a risk that those diseases will spike. And scientists are finding species of ticks not seen before in the region just ask pediatric nurse Maria Mekeel, who has plucked 37 of the arachnids off herself and her husband over two months of dog walks. The changes can be traced to 2009, when scientists found the Ixodes Affinis tick in North Carolina. The parasite, native to South America, had been previously seen only in coastal Florida and Georgia. That particular tick doesnt bite humans, but it will bite animals. And scientists say a higher rate of disease in animals can make easier for other ticks to transmit to humans. Ticks are spreading, but usually not like wildfire, said Joseph Piseman, chief of tickborne disease activity for the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The spread is kind of slow but sure. Lyme disease is serious: It can cause paralysis, heart palpitations and death in extreme cases. Were not talking about STD rates, but its common enough that people should be concerned, said Charles Apperson, an entomologist who has studied ticks for three decades. There are at least two other types of tick to contend with: The Gulf Coast variety and the Lone Star tick, common in its namesake state of Texas. The Gulf Coast tick, which until recently was not typically found as far north or east as North Carolina, carries a disease similar to the bacteria that causes Rocky Mountain spotted fever. The Lone Star tick carries a flu-like infection, and Apperson said the main reason for its emergence in the region is a larger population of deer for it to feed upon. There is a national trend of an increasing number of ticks. Piseman said the Ixodes Affinis variety has been expanding in New York and Wisconsin, and Lone Star ticks have been spreading across the U.S. for decades. For the most part, scientists are not yet examining why the populations have been spreading, said entomologist Bruce A. Harrison, who studied ticks for the state of North Carolina for nearly 20 years. He hypothesized it may be at least in part caused by climate change. As temperatures change, animals that are food for ticks migrate often because the plants they eat are now growing elsewhere. All of its hooked together, said Harrison, who is studying the migration patterns of animals that ticks feed upon to learn more about how and why the arachnids are spreading. While the CDC hasnt reported a spike in tick-borne diseases, officials in North Carolina have noticed an increase this year compared to a year earlier. Rocky Mountain spotted fever cases are up 50 percent this year, said state public health veterinarianCarl Williams. And while there typically wasnt a single positive Lyme disease test 10 years ago, now there are a few each year, Mekeel said. For now, the best tool is education. Mekeel has put those 37 ticks she plucked off herself and her husband into a petri dish, which she uses to teach schoolchildren about ticks. If kids roll around on the ground, the ticks can latch on in toughto-find spots like hair or the groin area, said Mekeel, who has 22 years of experience as a pediatric nurse. Well have children that will come in with maybe one hundred ticks on them at a time, not always, but it happens, she said. Ive actually had a family that went away on vacation and put their clothes away in the laundry room and came home after a week and their laundry room was covered in ticks that had hatched in their clothes. someones spouse, someones child. As long as this nation has experienced war, Americans have traveled to cemeteries and gravesites to pay honor to fallen soldiers. Although the first known observance of a holiday honoring fallen service members was in Charleston, S.C. on May 1, 1865, in 1966 the federal government declared Waterloo, New York, the official birthplace of our modern-day Memorial Day. On Monday, scores of Citrus County residents, many dressed in patriotic red, white and blue, gathered under cloudy, storm-threatening skies to participate in the 33rd annual Memorial Day Service at Fero Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Beverly Hills. Among those who came to pay tribute was 30-year Air Force veteran Edwin Larock, proudly wearing his dress blues. With a slight shakiness, he saluted as the colors were presented. I come every year to pay respect, he said. I lost friends. World War II Army veteran Frank Ribeiro and his wife, Alice, have attended the annual service since 1985. On Monday, they paid their respect to Alices brother Liberico Coutinho, former U.S. Marine who served in the Pacific during World War II. Its something we did it was a job, Ribeiro said of military service. For retired U.S. Army field artillery officer Tom Green, he had come to pay honor to those who gave us the right to say and write what we want and for me to go to church where I want to go to church. The memorial service itself was less about speeches and more about traditions the parade of colors, the national anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance, the folding of the American flag, the POW/MIA Empty Chair ceremony and helmet benediction, the laying of the wreath, playing of Taps and rifle squad salute. Its been said the most solemn place to be on Memorial Day is at a memorial cemetery such as here at Fero Memorial Gardens, said Jonathan Beard, Hospice of Citrus County chaplain. I can think of only one more solemn place, and that is in the grateful hearts of all mankind. ... Tomorrow and forever we will remember in our hearts those who gave their lives.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2927.A2TUESDAY, MAY29, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESTATE/LOCAL Youre Not Just a Patient Youre a Person Lab EKG X-Ray Pulmonary Function Bone Density Womens Health Minor Procedures Chelation SAME DAY APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE!Inverness 3733 E Gulf to Lake Hwy 465-8001 Homosassa 7991 S Suncoast Blvd 621-8083 Citrus Springs 10489 N Florida Ave. 489-2486Alistair Co, MD Family Practice Alex Villacastin, MDCatherineSembrano-Navarro, MDCarlos F.

Larry Vega told WSVN-TV he was riding his bicycle Saturday afternoon off the MacArthur Causeway into downtown Miami when he saw the savage attack on the bridges off-ramp. The causeway connects downtown Miami with Miami Beach. The guy was, like, tearing him to pieces with his mouth, so I told him, Get off! Vega said. The guy just kept eating the other guy away, like, ripping his skin. Vega flagged down a Miami police officer, who he said repeatedly ordered the attacker to get off the victim. The attacker just picked his head up and growled at the officer, Vega said. As the attack continued, Vega said the officer shot the attacker, who continued chewing the victims face. The officer fired again, killing the attacker. Miami police have released few details about the attack, other than confirming that there had been a fatal officer-involved shooting. Detective William Moreno said Sunday that neither mans identity had been determined.JacksonvilleGov. Scott assesses damage from BerylGov.

Scott met Monday afternoon with Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown and other elected officials. Scott said the city was quickly clearing downed trees and power lines. From staff and wire reports Page A3TUESDAY, MAY 29, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE MIKEWRIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS Citrus Memorial hospital officials are hoping to cut nearly in half the average emergency room visit for patients by attacking two specific areas where wait times are the highest. A report presented to Citrus Memorial Health System officials showed the average ER patient time in April was about five hours. Individual patients may have experienced times much higher or lower, hospital chief executive officer Ryan Beaty said. Beaty said the target is to receive patients for treatment and either discharge them or admit them to the hospital within 2 1/2 hours. According to the report, the average patient time in the ER was about five hours in January and February, and six hours in March. That time is calculated from the moment the patient enters the hospital to the time he leaves or is admitted to a patient room. Most of the time, Beaty said, is not waiting in the emergency room to see a doctor, though that wait often about an hour is too long. Our goal is 30 minutes, he said. We think 30 minutes is the right amount of time. The largest segment of time occurs after the ER physician has determined the patient should be admitted. Beaty said three hours can pass before an attending physician is available to admit the patient. Beaty developed a pair of task forces to look at both time issues, and he is heading up the task force dealing with the admission delay. If I didnt think it was a serious problem I wouldnt be chairing the task force, he said. Beaty broke down ER times into four segments:From patient entering the hospital to triage, where the patient is evaluated by a nurse, is about eight minutes. Beaty said he has no problem with that length of time.From triage to seeing a doctor, the average wait in the emergency room is 56 minutes. Beaty said one task force is looking at ways to reduce that time by half.Doctor seeing patient is about 28 minutes.The remaining time is for diagnostic tests, such as an X-ray or blood work, plus someone to read the results, and admitting the patient. Beaty said the delay occurs because attending physicians are not always available to admit patients. Or, he said, they want emergency-room physicians to conduct medical tests Beaty said could be done after the patient is admitted. Its a very difficult and complicated situation, he said. Beaty said he is meeting with physicians and medical technicians in the hopes they can agree on a solution. A continuing problem, he added, is the number of patients who arrive at the emergency room with a medical condition that could be handled at a walkin clinic. He said about 40 percent of the hospitals 3,400 ER patients each month do not have medical emergencies. Beaty also said the hospital should be a better job giving patients updates on the progress of their ER visit. Weve got to get better communicating with patients, he said. The patient sits out there and nobody tells them anything.Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

NANCYKENNEDY Staff WriterIts the bane of golfers and picnickers and the answer to many peoples prayers rain. On Monday, the rain associated with Tropical Storm Beryl that passed over the northern part of Florida Sunday and Monday may have ruined a few Memorial Day outdoor barbecue plans. However, it brought some much-needed relief to the drought-ridden area. According to Paul Close, National Weather Service meteorologist, because of Beryls slow speed, Citrus County could expect to get up to three inches of rain from the storm. Residents from Floral City and Inverness reported some heavy downpours by late Monday morning. Hernando reported only trace amounts. Crystal River weather watcher Richard Papineau reported a light drizzle all day, which made him happy he had just put down grass seed several days earlier. Close said rain from Beryl, which was downgraded to a tropical depression at 11 a.m. Monday, could last through Wednesday, especially if it picks up moisture from the gulf. If that happens, we could get some decent rain, Close said. Chance of rain is 60 percent Tuesday. As for the rest of the week, dont put away your umbrellas. As a cold front moves in, so will a few scattered thunderstorms. Rain chances for Wednesday through Friday are between 30 percent and 40 percent. Close noted that hurricane season doesnt officially start until Friday, although weve already had two named storms, Alberto and Beryl. Next up: Chris and Debby. The outlook is for between nine to 15 named storms this season, he said, adding, but theres nothing out there that were watching right now. To learn more about weather, visit www.weather.gov.

Its dangerously high even though the North Carolina man swallows six different drugs a day. Hypertension may be the nations sneakiest epidemic, a time bomb thats a leading cause of heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure, and one thats growing worse as the population rapidly grows older. Despite an arsenal of drugs, millions of people in the United States cant get their blood pressure down to safe levels. Now, in a high-stakes experiment at dozens of hospitals, scientists are testing a dramatically different approach for the toughest to treat patients, by burning away some overactive nerves deep in the body that can fuel rising blood pressure. To attempt an invasive treatment a catheter is threaded through blood vessels in the groin up to the kidneys reflects doctors frustration with a disease that too often is underrated because people with it dont look or feel sick until a lot of damage has been done. If deadening kidney nerves sounds like a strange way to attack hypertension, consider that nerves in the bodys fight or flight system play a role in signaling kidney functions, which in turn help regulate blood pressure, such as by relaxing or tightening key arteries. If there was a snake in the room, all of our blood pressures would go up, appropriately so, explained interventional cardiologist Dr. Manesh Patel of Duke University, one of more than 60 medical centers around the country studying Medtronic Inc.s nerve-zapping procedure. But sometimes those nerves stay switched on when they shouldnt be, something todays medications cant address. The hope is that destroying a small number of the nerves could calm an overactive system, relaxing arteries and lowering blood pressure. Renal denervation, the procedure being promoted by Minneapolis-based Medtronic and other companies, has its roots in primitive nerve-severing operations performed in the 1950s, which often lowered blood pressure but at the expense of permanently injuring patients. Only in recent years have researchers revisited the technique, after companies developed easy-to-use catheters that can beam radiofrequency waves to burn away specific nerves without damaging the surrounding blood vessel. Its aimed at only the hardest-to-treat patients. In small Medtronic studies, those treated saw the key top number of a blood pressure reading drop an average of 33 points, although they still needed their medications. The companys Symplicity catheter is approved to treat hypertension in Europe and Australia, as are some competitors versions. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration required a more rigorous study, now enrolling more than 500 people, that includes an unusual step to prove if it really works. Some patients receive the real procedure and some get a fake just the catheter, no zapping. Patel describes patients wearing a blindfold and earphones while lying sedated on the treatment table, to ensure they dont know which theyre getting.

Associated PressNEW YORK Voters who click on President Barack Obamas campaign website are likely to start seeing display ads promoting his re-election bid on their Facebook pages and other sites they visit. Voters searching Google for information about Mitt Romney may notice a 15-second ad promoting the Republican presidential hopeful the next time they watch a video online. The 2012 election could be decided by which campaign is best at exploiting voters Internet data. The Romney and Obama campaigns are spending heavily on television ads and other traditional tools to convey their messages. But strategists say the most important breakthrough this year is the campaigns use of online data to raise money, share information and persuade supporters to vote. The practice, known as microtargeting, has been a staple of product marketing. Now its facing the greatest test of its political impact in the race for the White House. The story of this presidential campaign will be how both sides are using data and algorithms and personalization and math in their marketing, said Adam Berke, president of the digital retargeting company AdRoll. The promise and beauty of it is that its highly measurable its easy to collect data and see whats resonating and not resonating with voters. Campaigns have worked for years to target subsets of voters using commercially available demographic data, ZIP codes, shopping preferences and television viewing habits. But the growing sophistication of data-mining tools has allowed campaigns to dig deeply into voters online habits, giving politicians an unparalleled ability to personalize messages. Officials in both campaigns declined to discuss their digital strategies, but a review of their most recent Federal Election Commission reports shows both are spending heavily on it. The Romney team spent nearly $1 million on digital consulting in April and Obama at least $300,000. Both campaigns have been building their digital operations, but Obamas team, famous for its use of the Internet to raise money and build its grass-roots network in 2008, has a significant edge. Obamas digital staff is far bigger than it was four years ago, bringing aboard engineers and others with backgrounds in statistics and quantitative analysis to assist with the online development. Among other things, the Obama team is using microtargeting to enhance its voter turnout program. The campaign on Wednesday unveiled Dashboard, a new tool for field organizers and volunteers to collect data about voters both online and in person and deliver it back to a centralized campaign database. Romneys campaign will likely receive a digital assist from the Republican National Committee and conservative-leaning independent groups that are working to build databases to target like-minded voters. Television advertising continues to be one of a campaigns largest budget items, but a TV ad is a blunt instrument hitting a large number of people at one time many of whom wont vote or dont support the candidate who is buying the ads. Online microtargeting, by comparison, is far less costly and touches only those the campaign wants to reach. Its used to prevent campaigns from wasting time and money on people who wont vote for them anyway, said Jeff Coleman, a digital developer and former field organizer for Obamas 2008 campaign. Campaigns use microtargeting to identify potential supporters or donors using data gleaned from a range of sources, especially their Internet browsing history. A digital profile of each person is then created, allowing the campaigns to find them online and solicit them for money and support. Online searches offer campaigns the simplest form of targeted advertising. When a voter searches on a candidates name or a keyword that indicates interest in that candidate, campaigns will place ads next to the search. The ads offer a great return on investment because the campaign only has to pay for the ad if the voter clicks on it. By layering additional data about the person who clicked on the ad, such as their gender or geographic location, the campaign can tailor a very specific message to get that persons attention.A8TUESDAY, MAY29, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION 000B8FF www.chronicleonline.com Grand Opening May 18th 000BJ64 000B67A Irrigation Tune-up Special Toll Free 1-877-345-BUSH www.bushhomeservices.com Up to 5 zones Homosassa 621-7700 Crystal River 795-8600 Inverness 860-1037 HOME SERVICES $ 49 99 000B376 Three rescued from remote plane crash site Associated PressBOISE, Idaho Hours after their plane crashed on a steep and snowy mountainside in Idaho, a California fireman, his wife and their daughter were airlifted to safety by National Guard rescuers. The family was en route from California to Mountain Home, Idaho, when their Cessna 172 went down Saturday night, leaving them with head and back injuries, officials said. One of them used a cellphone just after midnight to report that they had survived the crash. A medical helicopter located the wreckage Sunday morning, but whiteout conditions prevented the aircraft crew from carrying out an immediate rescue, said Col. Tim Marsano of the Idaho National Guard. Rescuers who walked through 6-foot snowdrifts and on 60-degree slopes reached the crash site first. They wrapped the family members in blankets and built a fire until a military helicopter could lift them out with a hoist. It was inhospitable for a landing, Marsano said. The use of the helicopter was indispensable for this type of rescue operation. The three were flown one at a time to a landing area about a halfmile from War Eagle Mountain in southwest Idahos Owyhee County. They were later flown to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise, where they remained in stable condition Monday. Its unclear what caused the Cessna to go down. Photos taken by rescuers showed significant damage, including a broken front windshield. Authorities identified the family as Brian Brown of Wilton, Calif., his wife Jayann Brown, and their adult daughter, whose name was not immediately available. They declined to be interviewed Monday, said hospital spokeswoman Elizabeth Duncan. Brian Brown is a captain at the Cosumnes Community Services District Fire Department in Elk Grove, Calif. He is also Deputy Chief of Operation and Training with the nearby volunteer Wilton Fire Protection District. Wilton Fire Chief Tom Dark said the couple was flying with their youngest daughter to Mountain Home to visit their oldest daughter. He was relieved they were in stable condition. That was our first concern, how he and the family were doing, said Dark. Knowing what a good pilot he is, something had to have happened. Dark said it was probably an unusual experience for Brown, a firefighter for more than two decades, to be on the other end of a rescue. When the shoe is on the other foot, its kind of strange, he said.

Page A10TUESDAY, MAY 29, 2012 Big govt, big problemsThe letter from John Bassett (Infrastructure bargain, May 19) really got my attention. I sincerely hope John has deep pockets hes going to need them to afford the big government that he advocates. For the record, John, big government is not a concept, its a reality. Its not only a reality in the U.S., but also in Greece. I have to agree with you that Im not particularly enamored with a Mitt-Marco ticket, but for very different reasons. While I find Marco Rubio very intelligent and personable (much like President Obama), I dont believe he has sufficient experience outside of government to be a good senator, much less a president (again, like President Obama). Its too bad that we Americans too often vote for personalities and good looks instead of qualifications and positions on issues. Again, I have to agree with you on the fact that Americas most pressing problem is jobs. Your solution, however, will certainly send us down the same road Greece is on. I am currently reading a book written by Sen. Tom Coburn. The title is The Debt Bomb. He was a member of the Simpson-Bowles Commission and the Gang of Six that attempted to bring the big government spending under control. I rarely agree with everything I read, but he makes more sense than most. For example, he points out that the U.S. Department of Transportation spent $78 billion from 2004 to 2009 on projects other than repair and maintenance of highways and bridges. These projects included $2 billion for bike paths, sidewalks, and facilities, $850 million for landscaping and beautification, $224 million to rehabilitate historic transportation buildings and facilities and $28 million to establish new transportation museums. Now John, if you were part of big government, would you spend $78 billion in taxes on those kinds of projects? Remember, you had to borrow about $31 billion from the Chinese, or others to do it. Buy the book and read it, or check it out at your local library if the county hasnt spent the library money on pay raises.R.M. Sprott Crystal RiverPublicity stuntThat was quite a drug raid on Thursday (May 17) with a caravan of vehicles led by an armored vehicle including many deputies, the SWAT team, a commander and two Captains using flashbang grenades and all led by the sheriff himself. Who were they after? Pablo Escobar? Al Capone? John Dillinger? No, they arrested a 32-year-old woman, her boyfriend and her mother. Half a dozen trained deputies are all that should have been needed for this bust, not the 5th Armored Division and with a Chroniclephotographer along. The only thing missing was the white horse the sheriff should have been riding. To use all these assets and with the newspaper photographer is way over the top, and one wonders how much this cost the taxpayers for what amounts to a pre-election photo op for Jeff Dawsy the guy who repeatedly said he was not going to run for the office again. We have an excellent sheriffs department and it does a great job, but this transparent election stunt was unnecessary, a flagrantly obvious publicity stunt for the re-election of Jeff Dawsy, and it wasted taxpayer money when half a dozen deputies could easily have done the job but then there wouldnt have been all that great ink for the Dawsy re-election effort.Harry Cooper Hernando There will be investigations and already there are lawsuits over the rollout of Facebooks overhyped IPO last week, but no investigation is necessary into the reason for the outrage over the stocks rapid fall. Its called human nature. It is the same characteristic that causes people to believe against staggering odds that they can win the lottery, or score big in Atlantic City or discover a fool-proof system for playing the stock market. It is the familiar get-richquick notion that somehow one can bypass hard work, sound financial planning and win The Big One, retiring to a life of ease. The old maxim Theres a sucker born every minute can be amended in the Internet age. Today, theres a sucker born every second. No matter the teaching of moralists, history and experience, there are still those who believe they have discovered something new, or that they alone have a gift for making money. Facebook was going to create instant millionaires, even billionaires. It did for founder Mark Zuckerberg and a few of his associates, who sold their stock immediately and reaped immediate profits. There is nothing wrong with what they did. Thats business. But shareholders are blaming Zuckerberg and Morgan Stanley, one of the firms handling the IPO sale. Reuters reports the plaintiffs are accusing the defendants of concealing from investors during the IPO marketing process a severe and pronounced reduction in revenue growth forecasts, resulting from increased use of Facebooks app or website through mobile devices. This is like suing a casino because you lost money at the roulette table. Gamblers know, or should know, the risk in betting. The stock market is simply another form of gaming. When investing in an IPO, one is betting the stock will rise and the investor will profit. There are no guarantees. Even a novice investor has probably heard the disclaimer, past performance does not guarantee future results. The problem with moral lessons is they must constantly be relearned. The dot com bubble burst of the s wasnt enough for some people. Big and small scams, some of them advertised on TV, continue to catch the easily duped. Recall the recent rash of gold commercials in which the announcer proclaims that some experts predict gold prices will soon top $3,000 an ounce. Gold prices are down from their historic highs, but the commercials continue to run. How about a reverse mortgage? There are dangers with those, too, but to hear the paid spokesmen talk about them you might think they are the answer to all your financial problems. In fact, they are not for everyone and may cause new and even worse problems. Why dont people learn from history and the experiences of others? Greed is listed among the seven deadly sins for a reason. In the case of those who poured a lot of money into Facebook stock seeking instant wealth, only to see the price plummet, their greed did them in. There are rules about money. Licensed financial advisers as opposed to some of the TV hotshots who recommend stocks inform individuals about responsible investing. But our human nature too often gets in the way of sound judgment and it is that which the flimflam artists, snake oil salesmen and sleight of hand merchants have relied on for generations to fool us into believing they have discovered the fast track to prosperity. Those who lost money in the Facebook IPO have wound up with egg on their faces. They should have known better. Congress now wants to get into the act. It shouldnt. Facebook involved private money. If Congress wants to investigate something, it should examine how it wastes taxpayer money.Readers may email Cal Thomas at tmseditors@tribune.com.

As the cornerstone for the peaceful transfer of political power, voter trust in the integrity of the electoral process is essential. The U.S. Constitution allows the states to craft the rules for conducting elections with Congress reserving the power to alter their rules. Under Florida law, voters must be U.S. citizens and reside in the state. Also, convicted felons are barred from voting unless they have had their civil rights restored. Key to the integrity of our electoral process is the maintenance of accurate voter rolls by the states 67 supervisors of elections. To enable election supervisors to verify their individual databases against a statewide voter registration base, the state launched the Florida Voter Registration System (FVRS) in 2006. However, its limited data only proved effective for tracking felons and state residents who relocated to other counties. Not until the state tapped into the Social Security Administrations database in February of this year did the statewide data base become an effective tool for identifying deceased voters. Illustrative of its effectiveness, Citrus Countys Supervisor of Elections Office has removed 1,100 deceased voters from its rolls since February. Regrettably, the state has failed to actively push verification of voter citizenship status until recently. While citizenship status is fundamental to the integrity of the electoral process, the timing of the states citizenship push just months before the critical 2012 elections could not have been worse. Given the lingering memory of Floridas 2000 presidential election debacle and the expectation that Florida will be one of the swing states that could determine the 2012 presidential election, the sudden citizenship push has undermined trust in the electoral process by raising skepticism among a number of voters that it is politically motivated. The states rush to send its initial list of more than 2,600 people identified as non-U.S. citizens to county election supervisors further raised skepticism since it was based on old information and was not fully vetted. Not surprisingly, the supervisors found numerous inaccuracies that have shaken their confidence in the data. With the supervisors already in a serious time crunch because of redistricting that has saddled them with changing precinct and district lines, verification of citizenship status at this critical time is an added burden that could adversely impact preparations for the primary and general elections. Without question, a thorough and accurate vetting of voter citizenship status is essential to electoral integrity. Nevertheless, the questions raised by the states ill-timed rush to purge non-U.S. citizens from the voter rolls has served to undermine rather than assure voter trust in Floridas electoral process.

before them. More are from the Reserves and National Guard 43 percent of those filing disability claims rather than career military. More of them are women, accounting for 12 percent of those who have sought care through the VA. And some are claiming PTSD due to military sexual trauma. The new veterans have different types of injuries than previous veterans did. Thats partly because improvised bombs have been the main weapon and because body armor and improved battlefield care allowed many of them to survive wounds that in past wars proved fatal. Theyre being kept alive at unprecedented rates, said Dr. David Cifu, the VAs medical rehabilitation chief. More than 95 percent of troops wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan have survived. Larry Bailey II is an example. After tripping a rooftop bomb in Afghanistan last June, the 26-year-old Marine remembers flying into the air, then fellow troops attending to him. I pretty much knew that my legs were gone. My left hand, from what I remember I still had three fingers on it, although they didnt seem right, Bailey said. I looked a few times but then they told me to stop looking. Bailey, who is from Waukegan, Ill., north of Chicago, ended up a triple amputee and expects to get a hand transplant this summer. He is still transitioning from active duty and is not yet a veteran. Just more than half of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans eligible for VA care have used it so far. Of those who have sought VA care:More than 1,600 of them lost a limb; many others lost fingers or toes.At least 156 are blind, and thousands of others have impaired vision.More than 177,000 have hearing loss, and more than 350,000 report tinnitus noise or ringing in the ears.Thousands are disfigured, as many as 200 of them so badly that they may need face transplants. One-quarter of battlefield injuries requiring evacuation included wounds to the face or jaw, one study found. The numbers are pretty staggering, said Dr. Bohdan Pomahac, a surgeon at Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston who has done four face transplants on non-military patients and expects to start doing them soon on veterans. Others have invisible wounds. More than 400,000 of these new veterans have been treated by the VA for a mental health problem, most commonly, PTSD. Tens of thousands of veterans suffered traumatic brain injury, or TBI mostly mild concussions from bomb blasts and doctors dont know whats in store for them long-term. Cifu, of the VA, said roughly 20 percent of active duty troops suffered concussions, but only one-third of them have symptoms lasting beyond a few months. Thats still a big number, and its very rare that someone has just a single concussion, said David Hovda, director of the UCLA Brain Injury Research Center. Suffering multiple concussions, or one soon after another, raises the risk of long-term problems. A brain injury also makes the brain more susceptible to PTSD, he said. On a more mundane level, many new veterans have back, shoulder and knee problems, aggravated by carrying heavy packs and wearing the body armor that helped keep them alive. One recent study found that 19 percent required orthopedic surgery consultations and 4 percent needed surgery after returning from combat. All of this adds up to more disability claims, which for years have been coming in faster than the government can handle them. The average wait to get a new one processed grows longer each month and is now about eight months time that a frustrated, injured veteran might spend with no income. More than 560,000 claims are backlogged older than 125 days. The VAs benefits chief, Hickey, gave these reasons:Sheer volume. Disability claims from all veterans soared from 888,000 in 2008 to 1.3 million in 2011. Last years included more than 230,000 new claims from Vietnam veterans because of a change in what conditions can be considered related to Agent Orange exposure. Those complex, 50-year-old cases took more than a third of available staff, she said.High number of ailments per claim. When a veteran claims 11 to 14 problems, each one requires due diligence a medical evaluation and proof that it is service-related, Hickey said.A new mandate to handle the oldest cases first. Because these tend to be the most complex, they have monopolized staff and pushed up average processing time on new claims, she said.Outmoded systems. The VA is streamlining and going to electronic records, but for now, We have 4.4 million case files sitting around 56 regional offices that we have to work with; that slows us down significantly, Hickey said. Barry Jesinoski, executive director of Disabled American Veterans, called Hickeys efforts commendable, but said: The VA has a long way to go to meet veterans needs. Even before the surge in Agent Orange cases, VA officials were already at a place that was unacceptable on backlogged claims, he said. He and VA officials agree that the economy is motivating some claims. His group helps veterans file them, and he said that sometimes when veterans already getting benefits come in to file additional claims, Well say, Is your back worse? and theyll say, No, I just lost my job. Jesinoski does believe these veterans have more mental problems, especially from multiple deployments. You just cant keep sending people into war five, six or seven times and expect that theyre going to come home just fine, he said. For taxpayers, the ordeal is just beginning. With any war, the cost of caring for veterans rises for several decades and peaks 30 to 40 years later, when diseases of aging are more common, said Harvard economist Linda Bilmes. She estimates the health care and disability costs of the recent wars at $600 billion to $900 billion. This is a huge number and theres no money set aside, she said. Unless we take steps now into some kind of fund that will grow over time, its very plausible many people will feel we cant afford these benefits we overpromised. How would that play to these veterans, who all volunteered and now expect the government to keep its end of the bargain? The deal was, if you get wounded, were going to supply this level of support, Bilmes said. Right now, theres a lot of sympathy and a lot of people want to help. But memories are short and times change.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, MAY29, 2012 A11 Walk-Ins Welcome Now Accepting New Patients Mon.-Fri. 8:30am-4:30pm, Saturday by appt. only 8:00am-11:00am Active Staff at both Seven Rivers & Citrus Memorial Hospitals B.K.

The youngest person ever to qualify for the National Spelling Bee was running around in a stream with a friend, hunting for rocks. Suddenly, she came charging up the bank and headed straight for her mother. Hold on to that basalt, Lori Anne Madison said in a bossy 6-year-olds voice, and do not drop it. Go away, her mother said playfully. Sorina Madison held on to the rock nonetheless, and soon was carrying more basalt and a nice hunk of quartz. I cant carry the entire park, she eventually told Lori Anne. Never mind. By then Lori Anne had joined up with more friends and had taken on a different quest, searching for snails, slugs, tadpoles, water striders, baby snakes and more as they splashed in the waters on a sunny day at the Scotts Run Nature Preserve in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. Oh my gosh, what is it? A water worm. A water worm! Its alive, said Lori Anne. I need it in my collection. Its wonderful. She is blonde and adorable and talks at 100 mph. In the past few weeks, she has won major awards in both swimming and math, but one accomplishment above all has made her an overnight national celebrity: This week, the precocious girl from Lake Ridge, Va., will be onstage with youngsters more than twice her age and size as one of 278 spellers who have qualified for the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Shes like a teenager in a 6-year-old body, Sorina said. Her brain, she understands things way ahead of her age. Its hard to argue with that, especially after spending a couple of hours with her. Theres been no need for Lori Annes parents to push her to do anything because shes already way out in front dragging them along. Some kids are ahead of the curve physically, mentally or socially from a very young age. Lori Anne is the rare exception who defies the norms in every category. She hit all her milestones early, walking and talking well before others in her playgroup. She was reading before she was 2. She swims four times a week, keeping pace with 10-year-old boys, and wants to be in the Olympics. When her mother tried to enroll her in a private school for the gifted, the headmaster said Lori Anne was just way too smart to accommodate and needed to be home-schooled. She out-argues both of us, and my husband is a trial lawyer, Sorina said with a laugh. No one is expecting Lori Anne to win the national bee this year. Just being there is a unique accomplishment. Asked how she thinks shell do, Lori Anne simply answered great and kept on hunting.

Joyce Connolly and her daughters left their home in Hurricane, W.Va., to head south for a Memorial Day beach vacation and ended up in the center of Tropical Storm Beryl. While it left little damage after sweeping ashore with 70 mph winds around midnight Monday in Jacksonville, Fla., the storm still wrecked much of Connollys trip. She skipped a graduation because powerful winds kept her and her daughters from venturing past the beach boardwalk when the storm approached Sunday. And she postponed their drive home Monday as Beryl, downgraded to a tropical depression, continued to dump rain near the Georgia-Florida state line. It definitely changed our vacation to unfortunate circumstances that were not happy with. But you just have to live with it, said Connolly, who at least found the irony of her hometowns name pretty funny. Beach trips, backyard barbecues and graveside Memorial Day observances got a good soaking in southeastern Georgia and northern Florida. Beach lifeguards turned swimmers away from the ocean because of dangerous rip currents from Jacksonville to Tybee Island, Georgias largest public beach 140 miles to the north. Skip Sasser, who oversees the islands lifeguards as its fire chief, said beach traffic was unusually thin for a holiday. The ocean was declared off-limits to swimmers for a second day in a row. Its been raining intermittently, so its chased a lot of them off, Sasser said. There was a lot of traffic this morning heading westbound out of Tybee. Veterans groups, meanwhile, carried out outdoor Memorial Day ceremonies despite the grim forecast. At Savannahs historic Bonaventure Cemetery, American Legion members worked through a downpour to make sure its plot for veterans had a small American flag planted by each headstone. When we were setting up, I had a different shirt on and I got soaked to the skin. My socks and my underwear probably are, too, said Jim Grismer, commander of American Legion Post 135 in Savannah. I had so many people trying to talk me into moving it inside. But I said then you cant have the live firing salute and the flag raising. The rain paused just as a crowd of 100 people began arriving. Robert Schulz, an 80-year-old who served in the Marines in the Korean War, held a folded umbrella in one hand as he saluted with the other during the service. Schulz said he and his wife briefly considered skipping the ceremony for the first time in 10 years. I said it would be terrible if nobody showed up, Barbara Schulz said. We had to come for our veterans. Aside from ruining holiday plans, the rain was welcome on the Georgia coast for bringing some relief from persistent drought. According to the state climatologists office, as of May 1, rainfall in Savannah was 15 inches below normal for the past 12 months. Windy and wet Obama says Vietnam veterans too often denigrated President pays tribute to war heroes Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama paid tribute Monday to the men and women who have died defending America, pointing to Vietnam veterans as an under appreciated and sometimes maligned group of war heroes who remained true to their nation despite an unwelcome homecoming. You were sometimes blamed for the misdeeds of a few, Obama said at the Vietnam War Memorial. You came home and were sometimes denigrated when you should have been celebrated. It was a national shame, a disgrace that should have never happened. Even though some Americans turned their backs on you, you never turned your back on America, Obama said. Marking Memorial Day at both the black granite wall honoring more than 58,000 soldiers who died in the Vietnam War and earlier at Arlington National Cemetery across the Potomac River from the capital, Obama noted for the first time in nine years, Americans are not fighting and dying in Iraq, and the nation was winding down its role in the conflict in Afghanistan. After a decade under the dark cloud of war, we can see the light of the new day on the horizon, Obama said to an audience gathered at the Arlington amphitheater lined with American flags under a warm, brilliant sun. In this election year, Obama said the nation must remain committed to providing for the families of fallen soldiers and help returning service members seeking a job, higher education or health care benefits. As long as Im president, we will make sure you and your loved ones will receive the benefits youve earned and the respect you deserve, Obama said. America will be there for you. Obama said sending troops into harms way was the most wrenching decision that I have to make. And I can promise you I will never do so unless its absolutely necessary.

Explosion rocks Nairobi shops; 16 wounded Associated PressNAIROBI, Kenya An explosion ripped through a building full of small shops in downtown Nairobi on Monday, wounding at least 16 people, the police commissioner said. He could not immediately say what caused the blast. The force of the explosion ripped apart the one-story buildings aluminum roof, but a high-rise building with a glass exterior right next to the blast did not appear to sustain major damage. Police Commissioner Mathew Iteere said at least 16 people were wounded. Another high-ranking police official said there were no obvious signs that the blast was caused by a terrorists bomb. No ball bearings or nails lethal shrapnel packed into bombs were found, and officials were investigating the possibility a faulty electrical line caused the explosion. The official said he could not be quoted by name. People with bloody wounds received medical care right after the blast, as authorities tried to usher hundreds of people in the street away from the scene. TV images showed thick black smoke billowing out of the building in the moments after the blast, which happened shortly after 1 p.m. Al-Shabab militants from neighboring Somalia have long threatened to carry out substantial attacks in Kenya following Kenyas decision last October to send troops into Somalia to pursue al-Shabab militants. Popes butler vows to help Vatican scandal probe Associated PressVATICAN CITY The biggest scandal to rock the Vatican in decades widened Monday when the popes butler, arrested for allegedly having confidential documents in his home, agreed to cooperate with investigators raising the specter that higher-ranking ecclesial heads may soon roll. Few believe butler Paolo Gabriele worked alone to leak dozens of documents shedding light on power struggles, corruption and intrigue inside the highest levels of the Catholic Church. The leaks have tormented the Vatican for months and painted a picture of a church hierarchy in utter disarray. Gabriele, the popes personal butler since 2006, was arrested Wednesday evening after Holy See documents were found inside his Vatican City apartment, adding an unfathomable Hollywood twist to the already sordid Vatileaks scandal. He remains in custody in a Vatican detention facility, accused of theft, and has met with his wife and lawyers. Gabrieles lawyer, Carlo Fusco, said Monday his client was very serene and calm, despite the whirlwind of speculation surrounding his arrest. He said Gabriele himself had told the Vatican judge investigating the case that he would respond to all the questions and will collaborate with investigators to ascertain the truth. Italian media reported Monday a cardinal is suspected of playing a major role in the scandal. However, the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, denied the reports categorically. He said many Vatican officials were being questioned but insisted there is no cardinal under suspicion. But Lombardi acknowledged the investigation continues. He also dismissed as pure fantasy a rash of other unsourced reports about the investigation in the Italian media, which have been on a frenzy ever since reports of Gabrieles detention emerged Friday.

The Gators are ranked No. 1 in the NCAA tournament. Associated PressNEW YORK Florida heads into the NCAA tournament as college baseballs top team. The Gators appreciate the honor, but theyre interested only in finishing No. 1 at the College World Series. I think that we have a good team, coach Kevin OSullivan said. I think that we had a good year. Id agree with everybody that I dont think we have played our best yet, which is encouraging. Florida (42-18) was selected Monday as the top seed for the 64-team tournament and will host one of 16 four-team, doubleelimination regionals that begin Friday. That was a very close vote, said Kyle Kallander, chairman of the Division I baseball committee. The committee really discussed at length who deserved to be that No. 1 overall. There were several deserving teams. The other national seeds, in order, are: UCLA, Florida State, Baylor, Oregon, North Carolina, LSU and two-time defending College World Series champion South Carolina. We had four teams that were in serious consideration for that last top national seed, that No. 8 seed, Kallander said. It was very competitive in the evaluation process. Kallander said the Gators overall body of work including a 21-10 record against top 25 teams put them in front of the field. History has not been kind to the No. 1 overall seeds, though. Only once has a top seed gone on to win the College World Series: Miami in 1999, the first year the NCAA went to its current tournament format. Obviously, this is a great time of the year for everybody, said OSullivan, whose team opens against Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference champion BethuneCookman (34-25). Were excited to be in it.

So when the trainer of Triple Crown hopeful Ill Have Another was told Jessica Steinbrenner was on the line the other day, ONeill wasnt buying it. OK, Mark, whats going on? he said into the phone, only to hear the voice on the other end reply. No, this is really Jessica. The daughter of late Yankees owner George Steinbrenner invited ONeill, jockey Mario Gutierrez and Ill Have Another owner Paul Reddam to each throw out a ceremonial first pitch at Yankee Stadium before the Mets-Yankees game June 8 the night before the colt attempts to win the Belmont Stakes and become racings first Triple Crown winner in 34 years. What a huge honor it is, ONeill said at a news conference Monday at Belmont Park. That should be a blast. Team ONeill has been quite a hit at ballparks during Ill Have Anothers Triple Crown quest. Four days after the colt won the Kentucky Derby, Gutierrez was at Dodger Stadium throwing out the first pitch. On the Tuesday before Ill Have Another won the Preakness at Pimlico, ONeill did the same before Baltimores home game against the Yankees. From wire reports Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Chris Sale nearly made White Sox history in a dominating victory. Sale struck out a career-high 15, Adam Dunn hit a two-run homer and Chicago extended its winning streak to six games with a 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday. A special day ... it was awesome, said Sale, who is from nearby Lakeland. Its nice, especially growing up and being kind of a Tampa Bay Rays fan. My uncle brought me here to the first game. It was the day after my birthday. Sale (6-2) gave up one run, three hits and walked two in 7 1/3 innings while finishing one strikeout shy of the team record. Jack Harshman struck out 16 against Boston on July 25, 1954. I didnt know what the record was, Sale said. Thats something Im not really worried about. I knew I had quite a few there late in the game, but its the same thing just like any other day. You go out there and you try not to focus on all the external stuff that might get in the way of you doing your job. Sale struck out his 15th batter, Jose Molina, with a runner on third and two outs in the seventh. He retired his final batter, Rich Thompson, on a grounder to lead off the eighth. You know what, that guy could have punched out a lot of teams 15 times, Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. His stuff was that good. The entire package, what he did, was good. A lot of awareness out there. The 15 strikeouts was the most ever by one pitcher at Tropicana Field. Hes special, White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. I think thats what youre seeing is him being able to kind of manage the game and go for a strikeout and get ahead and all of those things. After Jesse Crain got the final two outs in the eighth, Addison Reed pitched the ninth for his fifth save and complete a threehitter. Chicago took a 2-1 lead during the sixth when Gordon Beckham singled and scored on Dunns 16th homer. Dunn has gone deep 11 times in May. You get some guys on and he can do a lot of damage, Ventura said. It was just one of those that he hits perfect, and he probably didnt even feel it. He hit it that good. Matt Moore (1-5) allowed two runs and four hits over seven innings for Tampa Bay. The lefthander, who had given up 19 runs over 19 2/3 innings in his previous four starts, struck out 10 and walked one. Thats two of the best young pitchers (who) have come through in a long time, Dunn said. You had to kind of focus and not get caught up in what they were doing. Those two guys are something special, man. For sure. Homer ruins Rays day Chicago pitcher Chris Sale strikes out 15 as White Sox beat Tampa Bay 2-1 Associated PressPARIS Only 22, just recently a Grand Slam champion and ranked No. 1 for the first time, Victoria Azarenka is still learning to think like a top player.

Sometimes I thought, Yeah, maybe I still fight, I still have a chance. Sometimes it was like, You know what? Forget it. I dont want to do it.

By the end, many probably left the speedway wondering what had happened in many of the races. A usual night of carnage and destruction plagued a few of the classes, and left the fans on the edge of their seats. Todd Brown (23) and Randy Anderson (4) brought 17 Super Late Models to the green from the front row for the 35-lap feature. Anderson jumped out to the early lead before a Lap 2 caution slowed the field. Anderson led the restart with Brown in second and Jim Smith (3) in third. Anderson pulled away while Herb Neumann Jr. (98) slipped by Smith for third before a caution flew on Lap 3. Once back to green, Anderson led, with Neumann finding his way by Brown for second at lap 10. Smith then moved to third. Neumann set his sights on the leader and passed Anderson on the inside of Turn 1 to take the lead at lap 20. The top three survived five more mid-race cautions before a Lap 26 incident changed the running order. Ninth place-starter Drew Brannon (82) marched to the front of the field and began to pressure third place-runner Smith. Brannon and Smith made contact, sending Smith into the front stretch wall, and the rest of the top 10 scattering behind them. Fifth place-runner Brannen Hester (77), Billy Smith (00), John Coffman (58) and Scott Grossenbacher (09) were involved in the mayhem. Coffman and Hester were done for the night, the rest rejoined the field. Once back to green, Neumann drove away from Anderson to take his second feature of the 2012 season. Following him to the line were Anderson in second, and Dale Sanders in third. Heat-race winners were Hester and Jim Smith.Street StocksA short 10-car Street Stock feature saw Jonna Hughes (12) and Ray Lyon (25) on the front row for their 20-lap event. Hughes took the lead on Lap 1, but contact between her and James Peters (5) ended Hughes night. The field was reset with David Kingsbury (73) on the pole. Kingsbury took the lead, but Kenny May (10), Bubba Martone (98) and Curtis Flanagan (3) all passed him. Martone connected with Mays rear bumper several times in the corners, eventually sending him spinning to the infield off Turn 4. May then intentionally wrecked Martone, was blackflagged and disqualified for the night. Martone returned to the lead for the restart, but the steering in his car seemed to be damaged. Curtis Flanagan (3) took over the top spot. Martone was unable to avoid a later wreck between Dora Thorne (48) and Austin Hughes (68). All three drivers were finished. Flanagan survived a green, white, checkered finish to take his seventh feature win. Following him were Tim Alexander (63) in second and James Peters (5) in third. Martone was the heat-race winner. Pure StocksTen Pure Stocks registered for the 20-lap feature event. Karlin Ray (72) followed last weeks win by moving to the lead on lap 12 from his ninth starting position.

IndyCar hit the jackpot with the Indianapolis 500: a record number of lead changes, a thrilling final dash for the trophy, a popular podium finish and 500 miles of racing under a blistering sun. What a tremendous race. We couldnt have asked for anything better for our marquee event, IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard said Monday. It had the right the mix of competition and entertainment as we showcased our sport on an international stage. Hopefully, people liked what they saw, learned what we already know and will come back for more this season. Thats the hard sell for the attention-starved series. Despite good racing, strong story lines and colorful characters, IndyCar cant seem to grow its fan base. The overnight rating for Sundays race on ABC was a 4.1, smack in the middle of the 4.3 from last year and the 4.0 in 2010. But theres enough buzz now that IndyCar is optimistic its fans will tune in next Sunday when the series shifts to a street course for the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix. The race, the first open-wheel championship event in Detroit since 2008, will be on ABC. I hope people watch the other races and see what we do week in and week out, said Dario Franchitti, who picked up his third Indianapolis 500 victory Sunday. The crowds have been good, and obviously we need to keep working on the TV thing, keep pushing on that. But weve had some cracking races this year. I think theyve all been pretty good. This Indy 500 swung the pendulum on an already strong start to the season. Franchitti and teammate Scott Dixon swapped the lead 10 times in the final 60 laps, and Tony Kanaan used a jaw-dropping surge through the field to jump from fifth to first on a late restart. The popular Brazilian led seven late laps in front of a crowd roaring its approval. On Franchittis final pass of Dixon, he pulled Takuma Sato with him and the Japanese driver wedged himself between the Chip Ganassi teammates. It prevented Dixon from setting up his attempted pass for the win. The opportunity instead went to Sato, who went for it in dramatic fashion. Sato hugged the bottom of the race track, pulled alongside Franchitti through the first turn, but failed to complete the pass either because their wheels touched or he simply bungled the move. He spun hard into the outside wall, barely avoiding wrecking Franchitti at the same time, and the Scotsman broke free for the win.

Matt Belisle (2-2) pitched a scoreless inning, and Rafael Betancourt got three outs for his ninth save. Fernando Rodriguez (1-5) was the loser.AMERICAN LEAGUE Red Sox 7, Tigers 4BOSTON Felix Doubront pitched six innings of four-hit ball, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia homered. The victory was tainted by an injury to 2008 AL MVP Dustin Pedroia, who left in the fifth inning with a jammed right thumb.

Associated PressMiami Heat forward LeBron James shoots over the Boston Celtics Paul Pierce during the first half of Game 1 of the NBA Eastern Conference finals Monday in Miami.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESCOREBOARD B4TUESDAY, MAY29, 2012 The White Sox had scored at least nine runs in each of their previous four games. Chicagos Paul Konerko, who had his average drop four points to .395, went 1 for 4. He flared an oppositefield single to right during the ninth that extended his hitting streak to 14 games. Ben Zobrist singled, stole second and scored to put the Rays up 1-0 on Jose Lobatons RBI single in the fourth. Lobaton was activated from the 15-day disabled list before the game. He was out since April 13 due to right shoulder soreness. Zobrist, playing in right field, took a hit away from A.J. Pierzynski in the second with a diving catch. Tampa Bays B.J. Upton went 0 for 4, including three strikeouts against Sale, and had his 10-game winning streak end. win three or more consecutive national titles. South Carolina opens against Manhattan (33-25), the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament champion. Florida and South Carolina are among a tournament field-leading eight Southeastern Conference teams, including Arkansas, Kentucky, LSU, Mississippi, Mississippi State and Vanderbilt. The Atlantic Coast Conference is second with seven teams: Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Miami, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Virginia. The 16 regional winners move on to the best-of-three super regionals. Those eight winners advance to the College World Series, which begins June 15 in Omaha, Neb., at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha. Miami (36-21) is in the tournament for the 40th straight year, extending its own record, while Florida State is making its 35th consecutive appearance. Dayton (31-28) and Samford (39-21) are making their tournament debuts, while Valparaiso (35-23) will play in a regional for the first time since 1968. I dont think our guys will be intimidated at all, said Valparaiso coach Tracy Woodson, a former major leaguer. Weve already played some great teams on our schedule this year. Among those not in this year are Texas (30-22), which last missed out in 1998, and Utah Valley (4712), which led Division I in wins but had a low RPI. Kallander said both were among 12 schools considered for the last couple of spots. Utah Valley plays in the Great West Conference, which doesnt receive an automatic berth to the NCAA tournament. The Wolverines won 40 of their last 41 games, and 45 of their last 49. Weve done everything we can to control our destiny, coach Eric Madsen said after Utah Valley won its third straight Great West tournament. Forty out of 41, thats incredible. Kallander, commissioner of the Big South Conference, said the lack of quality non-conference opponents was a key factor in the Wolverines being left out. They did very well against that schedule, so what youve got to do is go out in your non-conference schedule and schedule stronger, and of course, you have to have some success against that schedule, Kallander said. They did have a couple of good wins, no doubt, and scheduled a few very good teams in the schedule, but it wasnt quite enough for the committee. Two teams with losing records made the field of 64 Creighton (26-28) and Sacred Heart (25-30) by winning their conference tournaments.

From staff reports Associated PressMIAMI A big early Miami lead was wasted. Once the Heat took control again, they simply ran away from the Boston Celtics. And the NBA finals are now three wins away for LeBron James and the Heat. James scored 32 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 10 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and the Heat beat the Celtics 93-79 on Monday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. Shane Battier, playing in the conference finals for the first time, scored 10 points and had 10 rebounds for the Heat, who wasted an early 11-point first-half lead before running away to break a halftime tie. Miami outrebounded the Celtics 48-33, and blocked 11 Boston shots. Kevin Garnett scored 23 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Boston, which got 16 points, nine rebounds and seven assists from Rajon Rondo and 12 points from Paul Pierce. Game 2 is Wednesday night in Miami. Its the third straight year the Heat and Celtics have met in the playoffs, the third straight year James has seen his postseason path go through Boston as well the first of those matchups coming in 2010, his final run with Cleveland. Each of those came in the first or second rounds, never one round away from the NBA finals. And while both sides would say theres a long way to go in this series, Game 1 winners have a decided edge in any best-of-seven, the conference final being no exception. In the most recent 10 postseasons, teams with 1-0 leads in conference finals have advanced 15 out of 20 times. One of the five instances of a team rallying from a one-game deficit was last year, when Miami ousted Chicago in five games. Last seasons MiamiBoston series ended with James scoring the final 10 points of Game 5, and the start of this years matchup had him putting on another offensive display. He had 13 points in the first quarter two more than the entire Celtics roster and Miami ran out to a 21-11 lead after the opening period. Garnett made three of his four shots in the quarter, while everyone else in Boston green was 2 for 16 from the floor. The 11 points matched the lowest output by any team in the opening quarter this postseason. The other team to manage that few was San Antonio, which then dropped 32 on the Los Angeles Clippers in the second quarter of their game on May 19. The Celtics response was even better. Boston scored 35 in the second quarter, erasing what was an 11-point deficit early in the period by scoring 27 points in the final 8:46 of the half to pull into a 46all tie. Rondo, Garnett and Pierce combined to score 23 points in the quarter, looking absolutely vintage, nearperfect offensive execution getting to Miami time and time again. And the Celtics comeback happened even while they got hit with three technical fouls in the second quarter, plus Allen missing four first-half free throws matching his career-worst for an entire game. In the end, it went down as merely a one-quarter lapse for Miami. Another technical foul, this one on Rondo, came in the third quarter, likely born from frustration as the Heat started to roll again. With the game tied at 50, Rondo missed three shots in a 31-second span early in the third, the last of those getting blocked by Battier who hit a 3-pointer 11 seconds later. It started a 9-2 Miami burst, including a touchdown pass from Wade to James Wade grabbed the rebound of a miss by Pierce, spun and delivered a 90-foot pass to the reigning MVP for an easy score. Miami led by as many as 13 late in the third, before taking a 72-61 lead into the fourth. James scored 10 more in the third, Boston went cold again shooting just 27 percent in the period. James 32 lift Heat to win Miami runs away with Game 1

Associated PressBrian Baker prepares to serve to Nicolas Almagro during the final of the Nice ATP tennis tournament Saturday in Nice, southern France. top-seeded woman to lose in the first round of the French Open since the tournament started allowing foreign entrants in 1925. But she needed every bit of fortitude to right things while overcoming a whopping 60 unforced errors, far more than her 32 winners a terrible ratio for anyone, let alone a player who considers herself a title contender. Bad days happen, Azarenka said with a shrug. Unfortunately, today I had way more mistakes than I usually do. The top-seeded man, Novak Djokovic, limited his miscues to when he spoke to the crowd in French after a victory Monday, never even facing a break point while beating Potito Starace of Italy 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-1. It wasnt that successful, Djokovic said referring to his on-court postmatch interview, not his play, as he began his bid to become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win a fourth consecutive Grand Slam title. Im trying to take it slowly. Im running out of words, he said. Who knows? Maybe (in the) next two weeks, Ill learn something more. It wouldnt be much of a surprise if hes around long enough to face 16-time major champion Roger Federer in the semifinals. They met in Paris at that stage a year ago, when Federer ended Djokovics 43-match winning streak. The sports other leading man, defending champion Rafael Nadal, starts his try for a record seventh French Open title on Tuesday, facing Simone Bolelli of Italy. Day 3 also features fourthseeded Andy Murray, 13time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams and threetime major winner Maria Sharapova. Williams normally leads the way for the United States at big tournaments, but now she will try to keep up her end of the bargain: All 10 American women who played Sunday or Monday won, giving the country its largest contingent in the second round at Roland Garros since 11 made it in 2003. Other winners Monday included defending champion Li Na and No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska, who next meets seven-time major champion Venus Williams. Federer dealt with a few blips, getting broken once in each set, including when serving for the match for the first time. But he defeated Tobias Kamke of Germany 6-2, 7-5, 6-3 to tie Jimmy Connors Open era record of 233 Grand Slam match wins. Theyre never easy, those first rounds, you know. Last thing you want is to go down a set or (get) in a tough situation, but I was able to stay ahead in the first set. Had bits of ups and downs on my serve, Federer said. But overall, Im happy Im through. Thats what I look at in the end. Sometimes you have to come through when youre not playing your very best.TENNISCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, MAY29, 2012 B5 000BKL0 FRENCH OPEN RESULTSMonday at Stade Roland Garros, Paris, Purse: $23.47 million (Grand Slam), Surface: Clay-Outdoor Singles Men First Round Florent Serra, France, def.

Mattek-Sands won 6-4, 6-3. Associated PressPARIS American women are 10 for 10 so far at the French Open, giving the country its most representatives in the Grand Slam tournaments second round since 11 made it in 2003. And there are two more U.S. women still waiting to play first-round matches Tuesday, including 13-time major champion Serena Williams. Its quite a change from recent times. In five of the previous seven years, including 2011, only four American women managed to make it out of the first round at Roland Garros, where they can be flummoxed by the slow, red clay that Europeans and South Americans know better. A couple years ago, everyone was asking me the opposite questions, on why American tennis was so bad. I told them, I think we have some great young players coming up; its just the WTA right now has a lot of depth, said Bethanie Mattek-Sands, who eliminated 12th-seeded Sabine Lisicki of Germany 6-4, 6-3 on Monday. It really shows that some of the Americans are coming through, playing tough, grinding it out here on the clay, added Mattek-Sands, who is based in Phoenix. And its awesome. Lauren Davis, an 18-yearold qualifier from Boca Raton, Fla., surprised 30thseeded Mona Barthel of Germany 6-1, 6-1 on Monday, when all six U.S. women who played were winners. The others: Vania King beat Galina Voskoboeva of Kazakhstan 6-4, 6-2; Sloane Stephens defeated Ekaterina Makarova of Russia 6-4, 7-6 (6); Varvara Lepchenko beat Ksenia Pervak of Kazakhstan 6-2, 6-7 (6), 6-4; and Christina McHale edged Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands 2-6, 6-4, 6-4. Were all pushing each other at the same time, said McHale, a 20-year-old from Englewood Cliffs, N.J. Its like a healthy competitiveness, I think. Venus Williams, Melanie Oudin, Irina Falconi and Alexa Glatch won Sunday. For Davis, it was her first victory in three career Grand Slam matches. She played cleanly, making only 11 unforced errors. Barthel had 44, including 12 double-faults. The 5-foot-2 Davis finished last season ranked 319th, and she entered this week 162nd. The secret to success against Barthel? Her backhand is so sick, so I tried to keep it away from her backhand more ... and just kind of grind, Davis said. Now she faces McHale, and Mattek-Sands meets Stephens. I was just talking to Christina in the locker room. Im like, Who do you play? Shes like, I play Lauren Davis. Im like, Oh, my God. I play Bethanie. So all the Americans are playing Americans, but its good that well have people in the third round, said Stephens, a 19year-old from Coral Springs, Fla., whose late father, John M. Stephens, was the 1988 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. Everyone always says that were not good on clay, Stephens said. Thatll prove em wrong. Last year, King and MattekSands reached the French Opens third round. But no U.S. woman other than a Williams sister has made it as far as the fourth round since 2005.

FRENCHContinued from Page B1 Baker wins first main-draw match Associated PressPARIS It probably would have been hard to imagine back when Brian Baker reached the 2003 junior final at the French Open that it would take him nearly a decade to make it to the mens tournament. The 27-year-old from Nashville, Tenn., finally completed that journey Monday and won his main-draw debut at Roland Garros, beating 2002 Wimbledon semifinalist Xavier Malisse of Belgium 6-3, 7-6 (1), 7-6 (5), the latest step in a hardto-believe comeback. Its definitely something I didnt envision, Id say, a couple months ago or a year ago, Baker said. But the last couple weeks, my game has come around. Feeling a lot healthier and definitely playing some good tennis. He was cheered on by his parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, and his girlfriend Monday. Well worth the trip. Baker was forced off the tour for 6 1/2 years because of a series of operations that began in November 2005 and included work on his right elbow, both hips the left one twice and a sports hernia. Never really had that one moment where I thought about throwing in the towel. But you have to be realistic when you have that many surgeries, that maybe tennis isnt in the cards anymore, and that youve got to see what else is out there outside of tennis, Baker said. But never had that one time where I was ready to say: Im done. Maybe close to that, but never all the way out. Baker earned a French Open wild card from the U.S. Tennis Association by virtue of results at lowlevel clay-court events in the United States. He hadnt played in the main draw of a tour-level tournament after a 2005 U.S. Open loss to Malisse hows that for coincidence? until last week in Nice, where he went through qualifying to get into the field, then went all the way to the final.

report said more outreach is needed to ensure that kinshipcare families know their options. Theyre trying to navigate this system on their own, and theres not a lot of knowledge about what benefits theyre eligible for, said Mark Testa, a professor at the University of North Carolina School of Social Work. Theyre actually doing a heroic job in keeping these kids part of the family, and they deserve our gratitude, he said. Without them, our foster care system would be overwhelmed. Donna Butts of the advocacy group Generations United estimated that kinship caregivers save U.S. taxpayers more than $6 billion a year by sparing state and local governments the cost of foster care. We shouldnt then just leave them alone, Butts said. They need information, they need support, they need respite. Both the children and the caregivers need help. Among the problems encountered by kinship caregivers, according to the Casey report: Many of them take on children who were abused or neglected, and are coping with the trauma of family separation. They sometimes lack the legal authority for enrolling a child in school or obtaining medical care. Though most kinship families are eligible for federal aid through Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, many caregivers are unaware of this option or are reluctant to apply because of perceived stigma. Their eligibility for financial aid may be constricted by licensing requirements that were designed for foster parents and arent always appropriate for kinship families. Such requirements might include foster-parent training programs and regulations pertaining to the square footage and window size in bedrooms. Under federal law, unless they can meet the same hypertechnical licensing requirements as strangers, they are not, in fact, entitled to the help that total strangers get, said Richard Wexler of the National Coalition for Child Protection Reform. Among the agencies viewed as a leader in the field is greater Pittsburghs Allegheny County Department of Human Services, which makes kinship arrangements for more than half of its children in foster care. Its much less traumatic if they can go to someone they know and love, and who knows them, as opposed to going to strangers, no matter how well-intentioned that stranger is, said the departments director, Marc Cherna. The department policy is to pay kinship caregivers the same rates as other foster parents, and work with them on how to optimize the childrens long-term prospects. According to the Casey report, one in 11 American children lives in kinship care for at least three consecutive months. For black children, the ratio is one in five. Morrisella Middleton, 62, of Baltimore, raised two of her grandchildren for many years while also working full-time as supervisor of an assisted living facility. The childrens mother Middletons daughter had struggled with drug problems and their father died of cancer. It wasnt easy. Middleton went on disability after incurring congestive heart failure and hypertension, and relied almost entirely on Social Security benefits. Her grandson, Shane, also had chronic health problems related to lead poisoning, she said. I did not get the money like people do who are foster parents, Middleton said. The road has not been easy, but the reward has been so very satisfying. I see the fruits of my labors. Shane, now 19, recently began a job as a retail stock clerk. The granddaughter, LaQuanna, is 24 and works as a pharmacy technician. Would Middleton advise others to consider kinship care? If you love these children and you want them to have a chance, then you dont have a choice, she said. In somebody elses home, or in a group facility, theyre not going to get the chance that you could give them.

we need not to be ashamed of a grieving period that goes on beyond a few days. You cant avoid the pain of the loss. The only thing you can do is deal with it and move on, and everybody has different ways of doing that and different periods of time in which to achieve that. Just as if you were to have surgery, you need proper time to heal from the loss of a loved one. And many times, the patience and understanding come from within, some may heal quicker and move on, others not, but everyone has their own pace of healing from an event like this. During this period, you are going to feel a roller coaster of emotions: sadness, isolation, frustration, hopelessness and depression. All of these emotions can drain your energy and ability to function and do normal dayto-day activities. The next thing you ask is, When is this ever going to end? It will never end. It will only get better with time because each day and each week and each year, there will be certain events, people you see, or calendar events that will remind you of your loss. Sometimes, events like anniversaries are actually worse after the initial loss. All of these feelings will never go away. You just need time to recover. One of the natural ways of doing so is getting back into your daily routine to help distract your mind. This is good to some degree, but you will also need to face the pain and deal with it. Sometimes dealing with these situations with the help of family and friends and even support groups are very valuable. If you are religious, your faith can provide a strong support system for you, as well. Even learning or reading about other peoples losses can help guide you through this difficult time. Venting your emotions is another good source of release and healing. Crying is good. Venting your anger in a safe and nondestructive manner also is helpful. Finding outlets such as sports will help you discover that your anger was simply an emotional response to the event that occurred and looking back doesnt look reasonable. This is because your emotions are from your heart and you are not necessarily being rational or using your head. That is OK. Grieving and the road to recovery from a loss is a sometimes slow task that takes time, but each day you will make more and more progress. I believe that over time, the recollection of your loss will be replaced by pleasant memories of your time spent with the individual. You can do it. Everybody has done it. As they say, we live a terminal disease called life and, like it or not, grief and loss of someone and grieving is a part of that process.

A bone marrow biopsy is an outpatient procedure done in our office. He tolerated the procedure well. When I see a patient with low platelets, common causes include: ITP the body is destroying your own platelets due to immune dysfunction. MDS where bone marrow is not making enough platelets due to a bone marrow problem commonly from aging. Occasionally a side effect of medications. Surprisingly, in my patient, the bone marrow biopsy showed multiple myeloma. This is a rare cancer of the bone marrow. Plasma cells help your body fight infection by producing proteins called antibodies. In multiple myeloma, plasma cells grow out of control in the bone marrow and form tumors in the areas of solid bone. The growth of these bone tumors makes it harder for the bone marrow to make healthy blood cells and platelets. That is why my patients platelet count was low. This is highly treatable cancer and patients tend to live many years. There are many new advances in management of multiple myeloma. Newer and promising drugs are coming out every year. Two new promising drugs are likely to be approved by the FDA in less than one year. The story of this patient teaches us that we should not ignore blood counts. I commonly hear statements such as, I have always been anemic, or, If it is not broken, do not fix it, etc. Remember, low blood counts or many such other benign-appearing signs are the bodys way of telling us that something is wrong. If we ignore the early signs, we can miss some serious problems. Always listen to your body.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

GANDHIContinued from Page C1 as the only teeth saved. If the canines have enough solid tooth left, the dentist can do a root canal in each of them and build them up with white fillings. If they are badly broken down, a crown may be appropriate. Once the teeth have been restored, your dentist can make a partial denture, using them for support. If you have additional finances available, the dentist can make a bridge from one canine to the other, while still replacing the back teeth with a partial denture. If even additional money is available, you can actually have clasp-less partial dentures made. Still another thought is to use the canines as though they are implants. There are many methods of retention available to hold a denture to them, just as you would if implants were used. I know I have made this sound simple; however, with each plan mentioned above, the skill needed increases for not only the dentist, but also the lab the dentist uses. I have seen cases like this work out beautifully, but I have also seen them turn out horribly. I would suggest you take this column to your dentist and ask him or her if this can work for you. It would be worth your while to discuss this, as the cost for it is in between that which your dentist suggested and the implants. You remembering one of my old columns may have paid off for you. I hope things work out as best they can for you.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a Homosassa dentist. Send your questions to 4805 S.

Infections with certain viruses, bacteria and parasites are one of the biggest and preventable causes of cancer worldwide. While the impact in the United States may not be as great, from a standpoint of the planet as a whole, this is huge. Application of existing public-health methods for infection prevention, such as vaccination, safer injection practices or antibiotic treatments, could have a substantial effect on future burden and death rate of cancer worldwide. The researchers in this study performed a systematic evaluation to estimate the percentage of cancers worldwide that were caused by infections in eight regions. They calculated the percentage of all new cancers that could have been prevented through intervention on a specific exposure to a virus or bacteria. They obtained data from various sources, including GLOBOCAN statistics, had estimated the incidence rates of 27 cancers in 184 countries, and calculated that, in 2008 worldwide, about 16 percent of all cancers were linked to infections. The incidence rate of infection-related cancers in developing countries was almost three times higher, 22.9 percent, in comparison with 7.4 percent in developed countries. Researchers noted a considerable difference in the fraction of infection-related cancers between different regions, ranging from 3.3 percent in Australia and New Zealand to 32.7 percent in sub-Saharan Africa. Many infection-related cancers are preventable, particularly those associated with human papillomaviruses (HPV), Helicobacter pylori infection of the stomach, and hepatitis B (HBV) and C viruses (HCV). The researchers added that, according to estimates, these four main infections together are responsible for 1.9 million cancer cases, the majority of which are stomach, liver and cervical cancers, with cervical cancer accounting for about half of the infection-related cancer burden in women, while liver and stomach cancers accounted for more than 80 percent of cancers in men. Now, this is not really a new finding to the oncology world. The 2011 United Nations meeting on noncommunicable diseases highlighted the growing global agenda for prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases. But, although cancer is considered a major noncommunicable disease, a sizable proportion of cancer worldwide is caused by infectious agents, and with work toward better sanitary practices and more access to antibiotic treatment, this can be lowered. This research shows the potential for preventive and therapeutic programs in less developed countries, and the potential to significantly reduce the global burden of cancer and the vast disparities across regions and countries. Since effective and relatively low-cost vaccines for HPV and HBV are available, increasing coverage should be a priority for health systems worldwide, especially in the underdeveloped, highburden countries.

Moon Over Buffalo, written by K en Ludwig and directed by David Easter, out at the Art Center Theater, was a howling success. If we could only bottle the energy of those spirited players, wed be qualified millionaires. The story that evolved was all about an aging troupe of theater circuit players on tour in Buffalo, N.Y. With outlandish dramatic flair, the curtain opens and they are rehearsing. Aspiring for a Frank Capra movie contract, they systematically confuse Capras presence at their performances, the tipsy lead confuses his Cyrano de Bergerac and Private Lives roles to the point of hilarious mayhem. Deadpan wit by Delores Elwood as Ethel, the grandmother of the group, kept us in stitches. Her observations of s Buffalo, N.Y., were uncanny: If Buffalo wasnt named after an animal, it wouldnt have anything going for it. Its like living in an asylum on the guards day off. The twists and turns of the plot kept our thinking caps humming as marriages were at stake, an assumed affair threatened the show being able to go on, an additional upcoming marriage undecided by a romantic interlude by the bride-to-be. Granddaughter Roz, played by Jessica Watson, is betrothed to Howard, played by Jon Govoni, while still in the picture is Paul, played by Frank Meyer, who is a former boyfriend who doesnt want to let Roz go. Kudos to the costume designers for George, as Cyrano, complete with the Pinocchio nose, and Ethel in a stunning white formal gown. Alan Jones, as the attorney representing the stars, has his hands full as tempers flare and one-upmanship reigns among the stars, in grand comedic style. Sharon Vetter, as Eileen, was superb as the other woman who supposedly had an affair with the George character played by Jim Wellborn. Wellborn, as George, the tipsy, appearing-and-disappearing star of the theater group, and Tina Soldo, as Charlotte, his wife, were flamboyance personified in their mastery of their roles. Every ounce of physical and emotional stamina was professionally presented by the two. The love-hate relationship endured and in the end, as the two missed out on the Ronald Coleman role out in Capras Hollywood, Charlotte cries on Georges shoulder. Memorable vignettes include: Howard attempting to portray George S. Patton. The panic portrayed by the players when it is 30 minutes until curtain and everyone is looking for George. George pleading with Charlotte to reconsider and not leave the players stranded in the belief that Capra was in the audience considering the group for his movie. The incomparable Elwood as Ethel, wisecracking her way into the audiences hearts with the roll of her eyes and her perfected stage body language that sets her apart from others. The perfect timing of the players as they continually enter and exit the various sets doors. The play, with its Murphys Law (everything that can go wrong, goes wrong) premise, was entertainment at its finest. We laughed all the way home.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community. Let her know about your groups upcoming activities by writing to P.O.

HFWCF has chartered a plane from Allegiant Air to fly approximately 75 elderly veterans from St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport to Washington on a one-day trip. The flight will leave at 7 a.m. Tuesday, June 12, and return at 7:30 p.m. to a public Welcome Home parade. While in Washington, stops are planned at the Iwo Jima and World War II memorials. The veterans will also be able to visit the Lincoln, Washington, Korea and Vietnam memorials. Their chartered buses will pass Arlington National Cemetery, the Navy, Air Force and Jefferson memorials, the Capitol, Pentagon and other federal buildings. Each veteran will have a guardian angel. The guardians must be between 18 and 75 years of age and in good physical condition. In 2011, the West Central Florida Honor Flight flew 241 veterans to Washington. The first flight of 2012 in April was made possible by a donation from Progress Energy Florida. The veterans fly free; however, the guardians are asked to make a donation of at least $400 to the operating fund of HFWCF to help cover the $60,000 operating costs. The local chapter is a nonprofit organization. All donations are tax deductible. Persons interested in serving as a guardian should go to www.honor flightwcf.org, print the guardian application and mail it to P.O. Box 55661, St. Petersburg, FL 33732. For more information, call Barbara Mills at 352-422-6236. Honor Flight needs you Volunteers sought to help with World War II vets trip to D.C.

Scholarship awards Special to the ChronicleThe word is now out that there is a unique new resale store under construction at Timberlane Family Dentistry Plaza on County Road 486, across from the Chevron Station. The store, when it opens in early June, will feature high-end used furniture, home accessories, jewelry and special books. The store is operated by Nature Coast Affordable Housing Corp. doing business as Home Again Resale Store. Nature Coast is a nonprofit organization that has supported the Central Ridge Boys & Girls Club since 2003. The officers and directors of Nature Coast are all from Citrus County and are all volunteers. The store is striving for an upscale ambiance by tapping the skills of interior designer Kathy Thrumston of Home Stuff Interiors, Inverness. Thrumston not only is providing advice, but also came up with the stores consignment tagline that some things are too good to give away. Although tax-deductible donations are welcome with free pickup of bulk donations, the Home Again Resale Store is also seeking inventory under a 50/50 consignment. Were looking for special items valued at over $50 to offer our customers, said Hervey Gerber, Nature Coast president. Net sales from the operation will all go to support kids programs at the Central Ridge Boys & Girls Club. These programs include after school snack, summer Friday pizza, field trips, incentives for the Summer Reading Program, $25 per month teen stipends for teenagers who are junior staff to the younger kids, athletic equipment, game room supplies and scholarships. The store has a target opening date of June 2, but consignments and donations can be arranged mornings from 9 a.m. to noon by calling Home Again at 352270-8861 or emailing homeagain@tampabay.rr.com or visiting the website, home againresalestore.com.

C8TUESDAY, MAY29, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.This deal was the second one dealt by my mens group in Florida. How should the defense and play go in four hearts by South? The first three calls were clear-cut. Then North should have made a negative double, indicating length in both minors (the unbid suits). His actual two-club response promised at least 10 points (or a fabulous nine). East raised to two spades. Afterward, I mentioned the Law of Total Tricks. Without game-going values in a competitive auction, bid as high as the combined number of trumps. So, if East had the chance to bid three spades on the next round, he should have taken it to indicate his fourth spade, not promise more high-card power. When South sensibly plunged into four hearts, West was not tempted to bid four spades for two reasons: He had a good chance to defeat the contract, and the vulnerability was unfavorable. (Four spades doubled would have gone down two, minus 500, if South had received a diamond ruff.) West led the club ace, which had to be a singleton, given the auction and the dummy. In this situation, East was supposed to send a suit-preference signal to show where his entry lay. Here, with the diamond king and no spade ace, East had to play his club three, the lowest asking for the lower-ranking of the other two side suits. Now West should continue with a low diamond to Easts king. West ruffs the second club but has no winning continuation. When he leads a spade to remove the dummy entry to the clubs, South ruffs a diamond, ruffs a spade, ruffs a diamond, draws trumps, and claims.

For my husbands sake, every time Kate comes to town, I tell her shes welcome to stay with us. Kate doesnt always behave herself. I try to blow off her offensive comments, but its hard. My husband says, My sister is stupid. Dont let her get to you. But her last visit was the final straw. She asked whether my 2-year-old son is normal because he has a big head. Annie, he looks like his father, who is tall and broadshouldered. So is my brother, who played high school sports. She asked this repeatedly, and each time, I calmly told her that his pediatrician says hes perfectly fine. Then she had the gall to ask my husband whether our son was actually his. Kate also will make nasty remarks such as, Did you serve bad bacon? It tastes funny, or You dont wash your floor. Its sticky. Id love to tell Kate exactly how I feel about her rude comments, but I know the consequences wont be worth it. I already ignore her phone calls and reply only by text. Im tired of crying to my husband over Kates nasty behavior. I can tell that he is getting irritated with me. What do I do? Ready To Explode in N.D. Dear Ready: First, stop complaining to your husband. Its tiresome and accomplishes nothing positive. Instead, learn better ways to handle Kate. When she complains about your sticky floors, reply, Oh, Im so sorry. Heres a mop. If she dislikes the food, smile and tell her, Sorry I cant make what you like. Feel free to do the cooking. When she insults your sons size, nicely say, Hes so athletic looking, like his father and uncle. The trick is to remain wonderfully polite, sweet and perfectly innocent while you drive her nuts. It might help to understand that Kate says these things because she is jealous. We feel sorry for her. Dear Annie: Please publish this letter to my friends and relatives who do not own computers: I dont mind helping you, but there are rules: I am not going to research a term paper for your child. If I have printed out information, please store it wisely. I may not have saved it to the computer I am currently using. If you have access to the Internet, please look things up yourself before asking me. A dear relative recently became angry when I told her I no longer have the family tree information she wanted, nor did I have time to re-create the file. Also, paper and printer ink are expensive. I do freelance writing and editing and need my supplies for that. It would be nice if people would reimburse me for some of the expense or buy a pack of paper once in a while. Computer Geek Dear Geek: You ought to attach this letter to any work you do for others so they understand your rules. Those who ask for favors should not expect you to pay for the privilege. Dear Annie: Lost My Appetite better get used to being around diabetics unless she plans to lock herself up in the house forever. Type 1 diabetes is an epidemic, and people with the disease arent going to wait to eat. They need to time their insulin precisely. Doing it in the bathroom doesnt always work because some bathrooms are disgusting and many dont have a counter to put your supplies on. I think her friends will be thankful that Lost stays home. Sterling, Mass. Dear Sterling: We heard from a great many diabetics who took issue with Losts position. Watching someone inject insulin is not pleasant. However, when one has close friends or family members with diabetes, it requires that you put a lid on your sensitivities. Otherwise, simply show up later.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES Across the vast Pacific, the mighty bluefin tuna carried radioactive contamination that leaked from Japans crippled nuclear plant to the shores of the United States 6,000 miles away the first time a huge migrating fish has been shown to carry radioactivity such a distance. We were frankly kind of startled, said Nicholas Fisher, one of the researchers reporting the findings online Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The levels of radioactive cesium were 10 times higher than the amount measured in tuna off the California coast in previous years. But even so, thats still far below safe-to-eat limits set by the U.S. and Japanese governments. Previously, smaller fish and plankton were found with elevated levels of radiation in Japanese waters after a magnitude-9 earthquake in March 2011 triggered a tsunami that badly damaged the Fukushima Daiichi reactors. But scientists did not expect the nuclear fallout to linger in huge fish that sail the world because such fish can metabolize and shed radioactive substances. One of the largest and speediest fish, Pacific bluefin tuna can grow to 10 feet and weigh more than 1,000 pounds. They spawn off the Japan coast and swim east at breakneck speed to school in waters off California and the tip of Baja California, Mexico. Five months after the Fukushima disaster, Fisher of Stony Brook University in New York and a team decided to test Pacific bluefin that were caught off the coast of San Diego. To their surprise, tissue samples from all 15 tuna captured contained levels of two radioactive substances ceisum-134 and cesium-137 that were higher than in previous catches. To rule out the possibility that the radiation was carried by ocean currents or deposited in the sea through the atmosphere, the team also analyzed yellowfin tuna, found in the eastern Pacific, and bluefin that migrated to Southern California before the nuclear crisis. They found no trace of cesium-134 and only background levels of cesium-137 left over from nuclear weapons testing in the 1960s. The results are unequivocal. Fukushima was the source, said Ken Buesseler of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, who had no role in the research. Bluefin tuna absorbed radioactive cesium from swimming in contaminated waters and feeding on contaminated prey such as krill and squid, the scientists said. As the predators made the journey east, they shed some of the radiation through metabolism and as they grew larger. Even so, they werent able to completely flush out all the contamination from their system. Thats a big ocean. To swim across it and still retain these radionuclides is pretty amazing, Fisher said. Pacific bluefin tuna are prized in Japan where a thin slice of the tender red meat prepared as sushi can fetch $24 per piece at top Tokyo restaurants. Japanese consume 80 percent of the worlds Pacific and Atlantic bluefin tuna. The real test of how radioactivity affects tuna populations comes this summer when researchers planned to repeat the study with a larger number of samples. Bluefin tuna that journeyed last year were exposed to radiation for about a month. The upcoming travelers have been swimming in radioactive waters for a longer period. How this will affect concentrations of contamination remains to be seen. Now that scientists know that bluefin tuna can transport radiation, they also want to track the movements of other migratory species including sea turtles, sharks and seabirds.C10TUESDAY, MAY29, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Classifieds ClassifiedsClassifieds In Print and Online All The Time!
