Unfortunately, people got more than they bargained for. Beryl arrived onshore Monday morning with sustained winds of 70 mph, bearing down on Jacksonville. Although not hit directly by the storm, Citrus County did receive the tropical storms outlying bands. The thunderstorms continued throughout the night and into Tuesday, putting the brakes on many Memorial Day celebrations. The heavy rains created localized flooding, and tornado warnings were issued from 4:20 a.m. to 5 a.m. for eastern Citrus County. Around 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, the National Weather Service issued a CodeRED warning for Crystal River as remnants of Beryl landed on the western coast of the county. Tree limbs littered lawns and the roadways, and torrential rains slowed motorists and kept many people indoors. A waterspout is visible in Yankeetown early Tuesday. Tornado warnings were issued throughout the county Tuesday.

The park, like all of Citrus County, received many inches of much-needed rain from the tropical weather system passing through Florida. Associated PressSAVANNAH, Ga. The former tropical storm Beryl was expected to bring up to 10 inches of rain to parts of the southeast coast before it heads out to sea again, where it could regain some strength. Forecasters said Beryl, downgraded to a tropical depression after losing wind strength Monday, could dump up to 4 inches of rain in coastal South Carolina, where a flash flood warning was in place. Southeast Georgia and northern Florida could get as much as 10 inches. Meteorologist Brett Cimbora of the National Weather Service in Charleston, S.C., said the risk of flash floods was greater because much of the area has been dry and sudden rain could run off the hard soil instead of soaking into the ground. Meanwhile, with the official start of hurricane seasoncoming Friday, U.S. officials are reviewing their disaster plans especially since a tropical storm already swept ashore this week. While Beryl, which hit as a tropical storm, left little damage after making landfall with 70 mph winds early Monday at Jacksonville, Fla., it gave the city the chance to put its natural disaster plans to the test. The city will assess the damage before deciding how much federal and state aid to seek, Mayor Alvin Brown said. By Tuesday morning, Beryl had maximum sustained winds of 30 mph. It was centered about 115 miles westsouthwest of Savannah and was moving northeast near 5 mph. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said the depressions center was expected to near the South Carolina coast by Wednesday morning, then veer back over the Atlantic where it could regain tropical storm strength.

TallahasseeUnions challenge privatization in prisons Public employee unions are challenging a state budget provision calling for the privatization of health care in Floridas prisons. Circuit Judge Kevin Carroll had a hearing Tuesday in Tallahassee and said he hoped to rule next week. Carroll acknowledged the case will be appealed regardless of his decision. It is similar to another prison privatization case set for oral argument June 27 in the 1st District Court of Appeal. The state is appealing another Tallahassee judges ruling that struck down a budget provision requiring privatization of prison facilities in South Florida. From staff and wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 WEDNESDAY, MAY 30, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Outages a matter of perception A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterIn response to queries by some who perhaps consider what industry officials call hiccups in power supply as outages theChronicle called area power companies for answers. In the past couple of weeks, the newspaper has fielded many inquiries about sudden, albeit short, interruptions to their electric service. But two of the three power companies that service the area have not seen any abnormal interruptions in services. One company spokesman said what is often reported as an outage is usually the system resetting itself briefly thus not considered an outage in the industry. An outage, said Sumter Electric Cooperative (SECO) spokesman Barry Bowman, is when electric service is interrupted, such as during major storms like Tropical Storm Beryl, for an extended period of time. Sometimes people think a slight interruption in service is an outage, but that usually means the system is doing what it is supposed to do. We dont consider those slight interruptions as outages. It is the system resetting itself and sometimes will do that two or three times before continuing to function regularly, Bowman said. Progress Energy said it is also unaware of any extensive interruptions to electric service in Citrus County. While there may be isolated incidences of outages at some addresses or even streets due to anything from car accidents or branches on lines, Progress Energy spokeswoman Suzanne Grant said, no significant outages have been indicated by her company. SECO, Progress Energy and Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative are the main conduits for electricity in Citrus County. Calls to Withlacoochee Electric were not returned by press time.

DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Carol and Larry Dole are visiting the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park during their vacation from New Hampshire. The coupl e is traveling the state of Florida for 10 days in their RV in search of birding adventures. Time for getaways S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterHOMOSASSA Put in the time off from work and make plans to get away because vacation season is about to be in full swing. Memorial Day weekend traditionally kicks off the summer travel time of the year. According to a recent AAA survey, two in three Florida residents (65 percent) plan to take a summer vacation this year an 8 percent increase from last summer. At the very top (36 percent), residents said a beach getaway is how they will spend their vacation time, followed by a city destination (33 percent), theme parks/attractions (28 percent), family reunion (22 percent) and a cruise (19 percent). However, Florida remains a popular place for people from other corners of the world to visit. And while many may think destinations like Disney World and Miami Beach attract all the tourists, the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park was teeming with a number of out-of-town sightseers enjoying the natural Florida ambiance. Joelle Schilling and her boyfriend, Reto Gerber, didnt appear to be from another country until their distinct accents gave them away. We came all the way from Switzerland, Schilling said. She said she has made trips to Florida her entire life with her parents, but it was the first time her boyfriend was visiting the United States. They planned to be in the States for about three weeks. In Switzerland, Gerber said people only know of the glitz and glamour of America. Show business and Hollywood, he added with a grin. But he said he and his girlfriend wanted to see something different and more nature-based. We wanted to do something entertaining, and we thought it would be cool to see the nature in Florida, Gerber said before being startled by an unexpected chortle from Lucifer, the parks notable hippo. With their eyes to the sky, Carol Dole and her husband, Larry, enjoyed a bit of bird watching. The New Hampshire couple said they were spending 10 days in Florida after picking up their Laredo Fifth Wheel RV in Orlando. For the last three years, Carol said she and her husband have been avid birdwatchers and after doing some research on places to view birds, they stumbled upon the wildlife park as a perfect destination. The Doles said it was their first trip to Florida, and so far, it was great. Brian Lentine wasnt visiting from out of town, but he only recently became a Citrus County resident two years ago. At least twice a week the Terra Vista resident comes to the park to photograph the animals. And while he might not be a tourist, when family from Boston come to visit, he said they enjoy a bit of the smalltown Florida atmosphere. Taking in the surroundings and enjoying a bite to eat on their boat, Allen and Renee Atkinson said they didnt come from too far away. We live in Nobleton, Renee said. Nevertheless, her mother Carol Antril made the trip up from Tampa and was enjoying the old blue hole for the first time. I like it, she said. While some believe Floridians probably spend their vacation time in Florida, the Atkinsons said when they travel, they like to get away from the hot and humid summer weather and see something Florida doesnt have. We head North, Allen said. We go to the mountains. Truck crashes into convenience store S ANDRA F REDERICK Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER What started as a trip to the convenience store for a package of cigarettes ended in shattered glass and a dented Ford pickup truck. Dale Alan Nichols drove his 2000 truck into the parking lot of the Super Discount store at 1943 N.W. U.S. 19 around 2:30 p.m. Monday when he jumped the curb and crashed through the front plate glass window, a police report stated. I was coasting to the stop sign and then the brakes didnt work, Nichols said Tuesday. Nichols told the Citrus County Sheriffs Office his brakes failed, causing the accident. Upon inspection, the deputy said in the report the brake pedal went to the floor and the outside of the master cylinder appeared to be covered with brake fluid. The deputy also noted the master cylinder cap was torn. There were no injuries due to the accident. However, the store is boarded up with plywood but still open for business. I hooked the door and bent the door, Nichols said. It is drivable but not until I get the brakes fixed.Chronicle managing editor Sandra Frederick can be reached at 352-564-2930 or sfrederick@chronicle online.com. Store manager Mary Weinreich talks with customer Jerry Corbin on Tuesday in front of the Super Discount convenience store north of downtown Crystal River on U.S. 19. A car rammed into the front of the store on Monday afternoon.

When asked about the rain, Capt. Joe Eckstein, director of the Citrus County Emergency Operations Center said, I loved it. We needed the rain. We got a good amount of rain, and much-needed rain. He was also glad there was no major damage. Another tornado warning was issued for northern Citrus around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday after a Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputy reported seeing a tornado in the area. In Yankeetown, a waterspout was spotted and it touched down at the Withaloocchee Gulf Preserve around the same time. AccuWeather reported that since Sunday, Citrus County recorded between 6 and 8 inches of rain, with Inverness and surrounding areas receiving the most. Damage reports indicated major flooding around Floral City and Inverness. The Citrus County Road Maintenance Division also reported county road closures caused by the heavy rains. Closures included a partial road closure on West Oak Park Boulevard between Corkwood Boulevard and South Lecanto Highway, with the flooded section two miles west of South Lecanto Highway. The county anticipates the road will be open sometime Wednesday morning. Additionally, crews are still clearing roads of tree debris, repairing eroded areas and ensuring drainage systems are functioning. A sidewalk construction project on State Road 44 East also has to be redone as a result of being washed away by the rains. Weather reports indicate thunderstorms will continue as Beryl moves up the coast of Georgia and into the Atlantic. While Beryl brought large amounts of precipitation, the rainfall did little to ease the countys longstanding drought. The storm helped douse brush fires, but easing drought conditions would require a sustained period of rain, said Don Ruths, spokesman for the Florida Forest Service. This storm happened so fast, so much. When that happens, it causes the rain to wash away and does not necessarily soak the ground. Hopefully, we will have more rain as the summer rainy season begins, Ruths said.Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe contributed to this report. and present. Constructed in 1912 by the Read-Parker Construction Company at a cost of $55,885 on a square lot at a 45-degree angle, the courthouse is centered by roads outlining a diamond shape. Kathy Turner Thompson, Citrus County historical resource officer, said that when seen from above, the courthouse is known as the diamond in the rough. Surrounding buildings are overshadowed by J. R. MacEachron and W. R. Biggers design, directing peoples attention to the gleaming yellow-brick walls, towering columns and iconic clock tower. The structure is an amalgamation of styles from both American and European architectural schools, such as Mission, Prairie School, Neoclassical and Italian Renaissance. This courthouse is not only pleasing to the eye. Everything about it has quirky and interesting facts that only add to its significance. Even the four doors to the courthouse point outward to serve as compass points. Once serving as a place of justice, the courthouse is now the headquarters of the Citrus County Historical Society and the site of the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum. Walking inside, one is immediately struck by images of archaic faces, artifacts and decorations. On the ground, in the center of the courthouse, the tiled Seal of Florida reflects lights that have been electrified since 1914. Supervised by the Citrus County Historical Society, the courthouses restoration began in the early 1990s. And although the courthouse is still in the process of being restored, one cannot ignore the amount of time the courthouse has endured. Each step on the recently uncovered terrazzo floor echoes with the creaks and moans of a building waiting to tell its story. Touching the marble wainscoting, one can almost feel the memories ingrained inside its casing. Looking out the refinished and re-hinged windows, one can imagine a town with general store owners waiting to be supplied by local farmers. Before 1978, the firstfloor rooms held the offices of the Citrus County sheriff, superintendent of schools, property appraiser and tax collector. Now these offices have been transformed into galleries displaying local and prehistoric history, educating local schoolchildren about the history of their county. Even the modern bathrooms still have fireplaces. The exhibits of the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum house artifacts and treasures that have been a part of Citrus County and the courthouses heritage. Pictures and photographs of townsfolk and judges from long ago help bridge the gap between now and then. One of the four original clock faces is encased in glass, bearing the signatures of female aircraft spotters during World War II. Modern staircases that replaced spiral staircases lead up to the second-floor courtroom, the setting of the courthouses most significant events. When first witnessing the courtroom, one is immediately struck by the sheer size of it compared to modern courtrooms. One could be reminded of the climatic trial scene from the 1962 movie version of Harper Lees To Kill A Mockingbird. Coincidentally, the courtroom was a set in a wellknown movie. Elvis Presley filmed part of his movie Follow That Dream in the courtroom when he came to Citrus County in 1961, with local townspeople playing extras. In memory of Elvis film, the Citrus County Historical Society re-enacts a musical production of the summer When Elvis Came to Town to raise money for the courthouse. April 2012 was the last production date commemorating the 50th anniversary of Elvis movie premiere in 1962. A giant balcony overlooks the courtrooms grand stage, supported by two rooms with curved windows, one of the more expensive items in the courthouses restoration. From the balcony, steep and shaky stairs lead up to the attic and inside the clock tower. Access must be authorized by museum employees, and is not part of the regular tour. People with claustrophobia and vertigo are not recommended to go up, but all fears seem to disappear when beholding the towers interior. The 1,500-pound bell constructed in Boston, New York and Chicago gleams in the natural light coming through the newly furnished windows. The windows were destroyed during the string of hurricanes that hit Florida in 2004. Thompson said that this damage only proves that the courthouse has stood the test of time. As the headquarters for the Citrus County Historical Society, the vault, which originally belonged to the clerk of courts, is now the archive for records dating to the late 1800s. Everything from aerial photographs and poll tax documents to property appraisals and old Chronicle editions are preserved with a dehumidifier and climate-control device. Schoolchildren learn to distinguish between primary and secondary documents, while also learning firsthand about the countys history. Its the goal of both the Citrus County Historical Society and the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum to educate children with the actual documents and artifacts. History, Thompson said, doesnt start in a dusty old book, but it starts with the world around you. The past was just as alive as the present is today, and just like the courthouse and the collections within, the history is very much alive.

much bigger goal to be accomplished and thats winning the presidency, said Rich Beeson, Romneys political director. So while you can take a certain amount of satisfaction and pride for (Romney) and what hes accomplished, hes very resolved to say, Our work isnt done. Romney must now fire up conservatives who still doubt him while persuading swing voters that he can do a better job fixing the nations struggling economy than Obama. In Obama, he will face a well-funded candidate with a proven campaign team in an election that will be heavily influenced by the economy. Its these economic indicators that will more or less trump any good or bad that Romney potentially got out of primary season, said Josh Putnam, an assistant political science professor at Davidson College who writes the political blog Frontloading HQ. Romney opened his day in Colorados coal country, where he spoke directly to small-town America: Im not going to forget Craig, Colorado. Im not going to forget communities like this across the country that are hurting right now under this president, he said. Local officials report the areas economy is improving, but Romney said the recovery is too slow. Republicans wont officially nominate Romney until late August at the GOP national convention in Tampa, Fla. Romney, 65, is clinching the presidential nomination later in the calendar than any recent Republican candidate but not quite as late as Obama in 2008. Obama clinched the Democratic nomination on June 3, 2008, at the end of an epic primary battle with Hillary Rodham Clinton. Four years ago, John McCain reached the threshold on March 4, after Romney had dropped out of the race about a month earlier. He reported directly to five county administrators Gary Kuhl, Richard Wesch, June Fisher, Anthony Schembri and Brad Thorpe and served under a variety of county commissioners from various backgrounds. Yet, those commissioners say Mr. Maidhofs advice was sound, without taint of opinion. Mr. Maidhofs friends and associates were unified in their thoughts Tuesday that Citrus County has lost an icon, a favorite son. It seemed everyone counted on Gary Maidhof for something. Heres what these people were saying: Attorney Clark Stillwell, who often represents the interests of developers before the county commission: He had this tremendous institutional knowledge. You just dont find that. With Gary, it would be, In 1994, this ordinance did this. He had it in his memory and he made life simpler. Besides, he was just a good person. He was very honest and very straightforward. Chuck Dixon, planning and growth director for Citrus County School District who worked with Mr. Maidhof for 15 years: There are only three or four people in my life who have been really important in helping me with my career and Gary was right at the top of that list. To me, he was Citrus County. He exemplified everything that this county is about. What we are today a lot of it is because of Gary. Lace Blue-McLean, worked with Mr. Maidhof on Citrus 2020, Save Our Waters Week and other environmental events. He had such a level head about him. Problems would come up, wed go to Gary and he would find solutions. He never lost his cool. He always faced challenges with a cool demeanor. Gary Kuhl, former county administrator who promoted Mr. Maidhof to development services director: He was one of the most professional and dedicated people Ive ever worked with. Clearly had a strong ethic and certainly stood up for what he thought was the right thing to do. Its a huge loss for the county. Just a huge loss of a really good person. Theodora Rusnak, president of the Citrus County Council: He was somebody who was approachable by citizens. Where citizens might have felt put off or hesitant to approach their elected officials, they always knew they could go to Gary. He would make the time and tell it like it is. He was always an entry point. Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni: He got out there and worked. He was very helpful in the lakes cleanup and Cooter Pond Park. He got the Scouts involved to lay out the first Nature Walk. Hes got his fingerprints on a number of things throughout the county. Former Commissioner Gary Bartell: Gary was extremely beneficial to the whole board. He had the knowledge, the institutional knowledge, of all the county workings and doings. Crystal River City Manager Andy Houston: He worked with our tree board to get about 170 trees donated from the county nursery for Arbor Day. He did so many things people dont even know about. Josh Wooten, chamber of commerce chief executive officer and a former county commissioner: I know people who disagreed with him on some issues who are devastated. He was a true community treasure. A walking encyclopedia. He could quote any code or regulation from memory. He just wanted to help everybody. And there was this practical joker side. He had a real zest for life. Chris Lloyd, Lecanto resident and observer of county government: I knew Gary Maidhof for at least 15 years and we were good friends, although I could violently disagree with him on planning decisions. But we were friends. Ive been to his home and played with his dogs. Former Commissioner Vicki Phillips: I was thinking of all the people who are going to miss him. He was so smart and so active in the community. He was always going somewhere to speak to a group. He was always willing to help. He was just a good fellow all the way around and hes going to be missed. Pattie Amon, animal services operations manager, who was Mr. Maidhofs executive assistant for 12 years: I enjoyed every day I went to work. I laughed every day I worked for Gary. He was always in the hijinks. Its like he found the humor in everything. He just had a way of bringing lightness to every situation. I never met a man like him in my entire life and I dont think Ill ever again. He was my hero. Staff Writer Chris Van Ormer contributed to this report.

Its a tragic loss for this county and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Commissioner Dennis Damato said he has known Mr. Maidhof for more than 30 years, since Mr. Maidhof began work in Citrus County in public health. Hes irreplaceable on so many fronts with the community and issues important to county government, Damato said. Its a shock. The loss will be so great not only to our county but to those who are environmentally sensitive throughout our nation, Commissioner Rebecca Bays said. His knowledge is not replaceable. If there was anybody who ever had a deep passion and understanding for the issues, it was Gary Maidhof. Mr. Maidhof, 54, was born in New York in 1958. His father was a policeman. He married Charlotte, his wife, in 1981. They had two sons, with whom Mr. Maidhof was active in Scouting. A 1979 University of Florida graduate in zoology, Mr. Maidhof went to work at the Citrus County Public Health Department in the position of Sanitarian I in February 1981. He previously worked as a biological technician for the U.S. Department of Agricultures Forestry Research in Lehigh Acres, conducting a growth study on melaleuca and eucalyptus trees, hoping it would lead to a permanent job. But it didnt, and Mr. Maidhof faced unemployment until he found work in Citrus County. For nine and a half years, Mr. Maidhof oversaw compliance in water and wastewater systems with the states Department of Environmental Health unit in Citrus County before joining county government in July 1990, carrying such job titles as environmental planner, environmental specialist and senior planner. At the beginning of 1998, Mr. Maidhof took on the role of interim director of Development Services at a time when builders and contractors complained about difficulties working through the permit process. Mr. Maidhof served so well he gained recognition. Gary Kuhl, county administrator in 1998, wrote his reasons for awarding Mr. Maidhof some merit pay and filed them in his personnel file. Mr. Maidhof has performed professionally and with enthusiasm to greatly improve the overall performance of the Department of Development Services, Kuhl wrote. He has served during difficult times of reorganization and change always with a positive attitude. He is very willing to work with the public on his own time. When helping the public on his own time, Mr. Maidhof did not always stick to planning issues. He had many environmental interests, as shown in a letter in his personnel file: The second-grade teachers and students at Hernando Elementary School would like to thank you for visiting our classes with your snake collection. Your visit provided great enrichment to our reptile unit. The children were thrilled by your snake collection. By March 1999, Mr. Maidhof was appointed director of Development Services, in which position he was respected for his ability to motivate and provide a level of fairness in his management style, according to his performance reviews. Also in 1998, Mr. Maidhof was recognized as the Chronicle Citizen of the Year for his leadership and dedication to the community. Under a reorganization plan to make county government more efficient, Mr. Maidhof stepped into his last role as operations and projects officer at the beginning of 2010. Mr. Maidhofs task was to streamline operations between county departments and act as a general liaison for county residents. He worked on strategic planning of county programs and operations. Thorpe recognized Mr. Maidhofs sense of duty in Development Services at the county commissions Oct. 12, 2010, meeting, acknowledging how he facilitated the Wal-Mart construction in Homosassa: Mr. Creighton and Mr. Huntley were so positively affected by your quality customer service, they drove from Pinellas County to express their appreciation to the board. Final arrangements will be organized later this week through Hooper Funeral Homes. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916.

The Associated Press delegate count shows that Romney surpassed the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination during Tuesdays primary. Early returns show Romney posting a big win in Texas. Its a triumph of endurance for a candidate who came up short four years ago and had to fight hard this year as voters flirted with a carousel of GOP rivals.

Associated PressHOMESTEAD, Fla. The havoc wreaked by Hurricane Andrew here two decades ago still serves as a warning about the devastation even a slow tropical storm season can bring. Homestead was ground zero when Andrew plowed ashore in late August 1992, surprising South Florida residents who hadnt experienced a major hurricane landfall in a quarter-century and forecasters who hadnt anticipated the storms rapid intensification to Category 5 strength. The city has not only grown back from the splinters Andrew left behind, it has doubled in size into a demographically different community than the one that suffered the storms impact. Even with an influx of new residents who never experienced the Andrew cleanup and recovery, city officials say the agricultural community southwest of Miami is better prepared for future hurricanes. Homestead isnt the postAndrew city anymore, says Mayor Steven Bateman. I dont want that title. I think weve outgrown that five years ago, Bateman says. Weve doubled in size, we are surviving the downturn in the economy, our second big hotel is getting ready to open, and a trolley runs six days a week, Bateman continues boasting. Were moving forward. According to U.S. Census figures, more than 26,800 people called Homestead home in 1990. Though roughly 9,000 people fled the city in Andrews aftermath, by 2010 it was clear that the Andrew recovery phase was long over. More than 60,500 people were tallied in the city in 2010, and 62.9 percent identified themselves as Hispanic a dramatic increase from the 35.2 percent who identified as Hispanic in the years just before Andrew struck. The percentage of people working in farming dropped as the population grew, and by 2010 the largest percentage of the employed labor force worked in the education and health care fields. When Andrew made landfall early in the morning on Aug. 24, 1992, the storm destroyed more than 80 percent of Homesteads houses, including all but a handful of the citys mobile homes. Homestead Air Force Base, then the communitys economic and civic core, was wiped out. Photographs from Andrews aftermath show wooden boards driven through the trunks of palm trees, ambulances flipped upside down in piles and homes missing whole roofs and walls. Dozens in Florida died, up to a quarter-million people were left homeless and with $30 billion in damages, Andrew was the most expensive natural disaster in U.S. history until Hurricane Katrina in 2005. We had a party that night, as was typical prior to Andrew, says Steve Garrison, who in 1992 had recently retired as the police chief of a neighboring municipality to concentrate on his plant nursery in Homestead. People would put masking tape on their windows or plywood and felt like they were fairly well protected. That turned out to be nothing but a joke. After his party guests had gone home, Garrison and his family were awoken by the sound of the roof peeling off their house. The family huddled in a closet as Garrison held a mattress against the slatted doors. I just felt like such a jerk for having exposed my wife and children to the devastation of the hurricane, Garrison recalled while having lunch on Homesteads revived Krome Avenue. Now he knows better, he says. The RV and I are gone at the first hint of a hurricane. The Insurance Institute for Business & Homes Safety now ranks Florida highest among hurricane-prone states for enforcing a stringent building code, which was developed after Andrew. The codes overhaul gives city officials confidence that even with more than double the number of housing units in city limits than there were 20 years ago, Homestead is better able to withstand a hit from another major hurricane. I think our Homestead is well-prepared. Our building code is so ready I dont want to see it tested, but I think its going to stand strong, Bateman says. Affordable land drove Homesteads construction boom in 2004 and 2005, even though those were two of the most destructive and busiest hurricane seasons on record, Bateman says. Agriculture is still a major business around Homestead, even with hundreds of acres of former farmland now occupied by singlefamily homes, Bateman says. The air force base never regained its former size. It is now a reserve base that has 250 full-time military and 300 civilian employees, compared to 6,000 military and 2,000 civilian employees in 1992. The city repeatedly reaches out to residents old and new with bilingual hurricane preparedness guides, inserts in utility bills and community police events to reinforce the idea that evacuation orders and storm preparation should be taken seriously, says Ed Bowe, Homesteads emergency management coordinator. Bowe was a Homestead police officer when Andrew struck, finding his way back to work the morning after landfall even though all the street signs and landmarks had been blown away. He has a stern warning for anyone who wouldnt heed an evacuation order ahead of a major hurricane: Wed give you a black marker and ask you to identify on your arm somewhere your Social Security number, he says. And they say, Why, what would you need that for? Well, this way, afterwards, well be able to identify who you are, and that sort brings it home for them. Oh, this is serious, huh? Yes, this is serious, we wouldnt be telling you otherwise. Robert Thompson, 80 CALLAWAY, FLA.Florida Panhandle mayor Robert Thompson has died after an apparent exposure to mold while investigating a residents complaint. Thompson died Saturday. He was 80. Thompsons wife told The News Herald that doctors told her the mayor had died from a mold that damaged his physical appearance and mental faculties.

Associated PressWASHINGTON It took Mario Parker-Milligan less than a semester to decide he was paying too many fees to Higher One, the company hired by his college to pay out students financial aid on debit cards. Four years after he opted out, his classmates still face more than a dozen fees for replacement cards, for using the cards as all-purpose debit cards, for using an ATM other than the two on-campus kiosks owned by Higher One. They sold it as a faster, cheaper way for the college to get students their money, said Parker-Milligan, 23, student body president at Lane Community College in Eugene, Ore. It may be cheaper for the college, but its not cheaper for the students. As many as 900 colleges are pushing students into using payment cards that carry hefty costs, sometimes even to get to their financial aid money, according to a report to be released Wednesday by a public interest group. Colleges and banks rake in millions from the fees, often through secretive deals and sometimes in apparent violation of federal law, according to the report, an early copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press. More than two out of five U.S. higher-education students more than 9 million people attend schools that have deals with financial companies, states the report, written by the U.S. Public Interest Group Higher Education Fund. The fees add to the mountain of debt many students already take on to get a diploma. U.S. student debt tops $1 trillion, according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Student loans have surpassed credit cards as the biggest source of unsecured debt in America, according to the CFPB, which regulates cards and private student lenders. Among the fees charged by Higher One, according to its website, is a $50 lack of documentation fee for students who fail to submit certain paperwork. The Education Department called the charging of such fees unallowable in guidance to financial aid officers issued last month. Higher One founder and Chief Operating Officer Miles Lasater said in an emailed statement that the company takes compliance with the governments rules very seriously, and officially swears that to the government each year. We are committed to providing good value accounts that are designed for college students, he said, and students must review the companys fee list when they sign up for an account. He cited a separate study said that declared Higher One a low-cost provider for this market. Types of fees Among the fees charged to students who open Higher One accounts are $50 if an account is overdrawn for more than 45 days, $10 per month if the student stops using his account for six months, $29 to $38 for overdrawing an account with a recurring bill payment and 50 cents to use a PIN instead of a signature system at a retail store. Higher One has agreements with 520 campuses that enroll more than 4.3 million students, about onefifth of the students enrolled in college nationwide, according to public filings. Wells Fargo and US Bank combined have deals with schools that enroll 3.7 million, the report said. Lack of funding Lane Community Colleges president, Mary Spilde, said in an interview the real problem is a lack of adequate public funding, which forces students to seek financial aid and colleges to find ways to cut costs. Many institutions are looking at ways to streamline and to do things that were good at, which is education and learning, and not banking, Spilde said. Programs like Higher Ones shift the cost of handing out financial aid money from universities, which no longer have to print and mail checks, to fee-paying students, said Rich Williams, the reports lead author. For decades, student aid was distributed without fees, Williams said. Now bank middlemen are making out like bandits using campus cards to siphon off millions of student aid dollars. Students can opt out of the programs and choose direct deposit or paper checks to receive their college aid, but relatively few do. The cards and accounts are marketed aggressively using college letterhead and websites carrying the endorsement of colleges. Higher One also warns students that it will take extra days if they choose direct deposit or a paper check. In the end, students feel locked into accounts before they have a chance to shop for a better deal, ParkerMilligan said. He said thats especially tough for poor students who rely on food stamps and other social services. Those students budget down to the penny, and dont plan on paying a fee when Higher Ones ATM runs out of cash, he said. Offerings by financial companies vary by campus. Some issue checking accounts with debit cards. Others offer prepaid debit cards, which are similar to bank debit cards but can carry higher fees and offer fewer consumer protections. All in one Often, students campus ID cards double as payment cards. At the University of Minnesota, TCF Bank issues cards that serve as school IDs, ATM and debit cards, library cards, security cards, health care cards, phone cards, and storedvalue cards for vending machines, the report said. TCF also has branches on campus and 25-year naming rights to the football stadium. Its cards charge similar fees, the report stated. Having such visibility on campus is a big benefit for banks seeking exclusive access to an untapped group of potential customers. Many banks are willing to pay universities for the privilege. Colleges reimbursedUnder its contract with Huntington Bank, Ohio State University will receive $25 million over 15 years, plus a sweetener of $100 million in loans and investments for the neighborhoods around campus, the report said. Florida State receives a portion of every ATM fee paid by a student, it stated. Its difficult to get a full picture of how much money the schools are getting because most of them refuse to release their contracts with banks. Only a handful were available to the authors of the report. Ohio State and Florida State did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The National Association of College and University Business Officers, a trade group involved in the issue, did not respond to multiple requests for comment. Campus card deals have become more popular in part because of recent legal changes that cut into the profits banks can generate from students. A 2009 law banned credit cards given to students who had no way of repaying. It forced colleges to disclose deals with credit card companies and stopped some forms of marketing, such as offering students free gifts in exchange for obtaining a credit card. Until recently, banks also made a lot more money from student loans. They extended federal aid to students, and also offered confusingly similar, highercost private loans alongside the government programs. Congress cut them out of the equation in 2010. Neither change affected debit cards. As the recession forced states to slash higher education budgets, companies such as Higher One, Wells Fargo and US Bank approached colleges with an attractive proposition: The companies would assume the cost and hassle of handing out student aid funds, often paying for the privilege.

R ICARDO A LONSO-Z ALDIVAR Associated PressWASHINGTON Theyre throwing granny off a cliff! Thats the not-so-subtle message Republicans and Democrats seem to be converging on for political ads on health care this year, featuring heavy doses of what each side alleges the other will do to wreck Medicare. From President Barack Obamas overhaul law to GOP Rep. Paul Ryans privatization plan for future Medicare recipients, theres something about health care legislation that makes it a breeding ground for wild allegations. Families feel vulnerable to the catastrophic costs of serious illness, and few understand the labyrinth of private and government insurance, allowing partisans to fan their worst fears. Political pros play on health care worries to sway older voters. It is easy to deceive on the issue because the knowledge base of the electorate when it comes to the complexities of health care is relatively low, said Kathleen Hall Jamieson, an expert on political communication at the University of Pennsylvanias Annenberg Center. It would be hard to top Sarah Palins now-debunked assertion that death panels lurked in the recesses of Obamas law, but dont be surprised if that happens. Many people believe crazy things about health care because they want to believe them, said Drew Altman, president of the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. Todays outlandish claims remind him of fears about fluoridated drinking water in the 1950s. Sound far-fetched? Its already started. Earlier this year, former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum lent credence to an unfounded rumor the Obama administration would deny advanced treatment to stroke patients older than 70, allowing only comfort care. It didnt seem to matter that two doctors groups and the Health and Human Services Department refuted the rumor. And as for throwing granny off a cliff, two political ads are already depicting that one from the left and one from the right. Both dramatizations are getting attention on the Internet. The ad from the left, by The Agenda Project, features an actress playing an elderly woman in a wheelchair. Pushing her is a younger man acting the part of Ryan, R-Wis. America the Beautiful plays in the background. But the outing to a scenic overlook turns scary when he steers for the edge. She tries to fight, but he dumps her over the cliff. The caption urges viewers to let Ryan know America wouldnt be beautiful without Medicare. The ad from the right, by AmericanDoctors4Truth, shows an actor representing Obama pushing an elderly woman in a wheelchair off a cliff, after she demands a pacemaker recommended by her doctor. The ad takes things to another level by using a snippet of Obamas voice. It comes from a rambling response the president gave in 2009 to a woman who wanted to know how his health plan might affect patients like her mother, who got a pacemaker at the age of 100 and enjoyed a good life. A transcript of the town hall-style meeting shows Obama didnt directly answer the question. At one point, he suggests if theres waste involved it would be better to tell patients you know what, maybe this isnt going to help, maybe youre better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller. That snippet gets used in the ad. Later in his answer, Obama said maybe some patients should get a pacemaker faster, if that keeps them healthy. I mean, this can cut both ways, he said. Those words arent in the ad. Jamieson, who directs a fact-checking project, said both ads are examples of deceptive dramatization. Ryans plan would not affect current Medicare beneficiaries. And the doctors ad makes it sound as if Obama is gutting Medicare, when his law slows the programs future growth. Moreover, its unrealistic to suggest that either party believes it can jettison older voters. Erica Payne, a former Democratic Party fundraiser who founded the New Yorkbased Agenda Project, said she stands by the Ryan ad. It's dramatic, but it's accurate, said Payne, head of the public policy and advocacy group. Ophthalmologist Jane Lindell Hughes, a founder of Texas-based AmericanDoctors4Truth, defended the Obama ad as a parody that responds to Payne's commercial. It was absolutely a valid use of the president's voice, she said. People targeted by health scare campaigns say the attacks can accomplish two things: turning an individual into a pariah and shutting down legitimate consideration of new ideas. Pediatrician and health care expert Don Berwick, Obamas first Medicare chief, said he was never able to overcome the label of rationer in chief pinned on him by GOP critics, no matter how often he said he opposed rationing. The woman who asked Obama about a pacemaker for her centenarian mother said she was dissatisfied both with the presidents response and how his opponents are using it in their ad. It was just tit for tat, said Jane Sturm of Long Island, N.Y. Its not using intelligent reasoning.

Associated PressLONDON The debt crisis that has ravaged Europe for the best part of three years has exposed a dislike of the single currency but little desire to abandon it, a wide-ranging survey of public opinion found Tuesday. Pew Research Centers survey across eight European Union countries, including five members of the 17-country eurozone, indicated the regions financial problems have triggered full-blown fears about the future of Europe as a political project. This crisis of confidence is evident in the economy, in the future, in the benefits of European economic integration, in EU membership, in the euro and in the free market system, Pew said in a statement accompanying its survey. Despite those concerns, Pew found there was no desire for those countries that use the euro to return to their former currencies, such as the French franc or the Spanish peseta. The euro launched in 1999 and is now used by 17 countries. In Greece, the epicenter of the debt crisis, 71 percent of those polled want to keep the euro, as against to 23 percent that want to return to the drachma. More people in Greece, which is now in its fifth year of a savage recession, think the euro has been good for them than bad 46 percent of those surveyed compared to 26 percent who thought it was a bad thing. These findings may be crucial as Greece heads to the polls June 17 in a general election many see as a referendum on the countrys euro membership. Varvara Konstantopoulou, a 65-year-old pensioner in Athens, summed up the dilemma at the heart of a country that is trapped between indefinite austerity and a catastrophic currency exit. I dont think the euro helped us. When we joined everything became more expensive, she said. But we are trapped now. If we leave the euro, our money will not be worth anything. Its worse for people on a fixed income. Her 45-year-old unemployed daughter, Alexia, agreed with her mother that Greece was not ready for the euro when it joined in 2001. However, she thinks the euro will survive but in the future, she said, countries should get a grip on their public finances so theres no repeat of the current crisis. Otherwise they will end up like us, she said. Every country should sort out its own problems, but they have to help us to keep things going smoothly (for the euro).

On Tuesday, oil prices fell, the euro sank to a 22-month low, and the yield on the U.S. governments 10-year Treasury note fell near a historic low after a report suggested that Spain will have more trouble repaying its debts. But stocks rose anyway. In fact, they had one of their best days in an otherwise dreary month. Investors focused on hopes that China is poised to rev up its economic growth machine and that upcoming elections in Greece will help the country stay in the eurozone. The overriding news isnt that great, said Robert Pavlik, chief market strategist at investment advisers Banyan Partners. But Greece and China are taking the pressure off the market in the short term. Gains in industrial stocks that depend heavily on the Chinese economy, like Caterpillar and Alcoa, helped push the Dow Jones industrial average up 125.86 points. The Dow closed at 12,580.69, up 1 percent. China is the largest market for aluminum, which Alcoa makes, and Caterpillar recently said it is aggressively courting China to sell its construction equipment. Both stocks gained 3 percent. It was only the fifth gain for the Dow this month. The index is down 4.8 percent for May and is headed for its first monthly loss since September. The main culprits behind the decline have been the increasing likelihood that Greece will drop out of the euro currency and a worsening of Spains financial condition. Facebook plunged 10 percent to $28.84, shaving $25 billion off from the companys market value in its first seven days of trading. The glitch-plagued IPO has drawn scrutiny from regulators and ire from disgruntled investors who had trouble executing trades. Blackberry maker Research in Motion plunged 11 percent in after-hours trading to $10 after the company said it expects to post a loss in its first quarter amid tough competition in the smartphone business. The Standard & Poors 500 index closed up 14.60 points at 1,332.42, and the Nasdaq composite added 33.46 points to 2,870.99.

Page A10 WEDNESDAY, MAY 30, 2012 Reject FDOT deal The Board of County Commissioners will be asked to participate in a state-funded matching grant by the Florida Department of Transportation in the near future. The purpose of this project will be to pave the lime rock road on both the north and south sides of the barge canal. At best, this project will not show benefits for years to come. The countys cost for this would be $148,800. Meanwhile, Citrus Springs residents are faced with traveling on failing roads every day. There are approximately 440 miles of paved roads in Citrus Springs, most of which are failing and in need of repair and resurfacing. Keep in mind that it is 370 miles from Citrus County to Atlanta, Georgia, to give you an idea of the magnitude of this problem. Currently, Citrus Springs residents are paying the brunt of the road repair through a Municipal Services Benefit Unit, or MSBU, which is added to the ad valorem taxes of each resident. The current MSBU is also paying for street lights, fire hydrants, mowing, sign maintenance and replacement in addition to two full-time county employees and their benefits. The countys only contribution is matching the amount used for road repair by the MSBU. Citrus Springs contributes more than $6.4 million in property taxes to Citrus County annually. Yet citizens living in Citrus Springs are paying more than their fair share for services through an MSBU while their contribution to the county coffers are being used in other areas of the county. I would hope the BOCC would reject this grant proposal and use that money where it would have an immediate impact. Showing some respect for those living in Citrus Springs would be a good start. Bernie Leven Citrus Springs Service appreciated Re: Water threat exaggerated, Dr. William Dixon, Page C3, May 27. I hope the nasty comments directed at you (Gary Kuhl) in (the May 27) Chronicle did not dull your normal smile. The comments made had to have been just attention-getting devices. (Dr. Dixon) could not possibly believe that each of us has property rights to remove vast quantities of water from the aquifer that we share and from under our neighbors property. With all his listed credentials, I am surprised that he thinks the nitrogen from the droppings of 30,000 head of cattle would be filtered out by the soil. If he had any chemistry classes, he must have slept through them. With your particular combination of degrees and your extensive experience, we look forward to you continuing to help us keep our world healthy, beautiful and productive. Al Grubman Inverness A t a time when Floridas 11 state universities are financially gasping, the Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott are throwing $50 million away on a whimsical new school that might as well be called Useless State. Its the work of a Lake Wales Republican named J.D. Alexander, who sadly for taxpayers chaired the powerful Senate Budget Committee. Alexander is leaving the Legislature because of term limits, but as a goingaway present he demanded that his colleagues fund a new university in his home district. And then he basically stomped his little feet and held his breath and huffily threatened to gut another schools budget if he didnt get his way. And most of his fellow Republicans, including our governor, caved in like the phonies and wimps they are. As a result, Floridians are paying for a new university that we dont need, and is already millions over budget before the first class meets. Its a foolhardy and very expensive mistake, and its name is Florida Polytechnic. If you live in the Lakeland area, you know that there has existed for many years a busy tech campus, a branch of the University of South Florida. Along comes Sen. Alexander and decides that Lakeland urgently needs its own independent state university, that the school should be called Florida Polytechnic and that it should replace USF Polytech, which has been there 20 years. Alexander pushed hard, saying a whole new institution was needed to produce more graduates with the skills to fill jobs in science, engineering and technology. When some lawmakers balked, Alexander said he would hack $79 million from the USF budget a brutal 58 percent reduction for a school serving 47,000 students. The House would never have approved eviscerating USF, but the empty threat worked on emptyheaded legislators and thus was born Useless State. Classes are supposed to begin the fall of 2013, but the instant university is facing a few problems. No board of trustees, for example, which makes it hard to attract a president. No president, which makes it hard to attract faculty. No faculty, which makes it hard to attract students. And then theres the issue of money. Your money. Does $12 million in architectural fees for Florida Polytechnic sound reasonable to parents of students at the University of Florida or Florida State or A&M, who are facing hefty hikes in tuition and housing? According to the Tampa Bay Times USF chief operating officer John Long said the construction project on the Lakeland campus will cost between $112 million and $115 million. Unfortunately, theres only about $99 million available. The shortfall would be made up by private donors, hopefully in time to install technology labs before a few actual technology students show up. A fuller picture of the Florida Polytechnic fiasco was laid out last week to a committee of the state Board of Governors, which is supposed to oversee the university system. Normally the board would have been deeply involved with the birth of the new school an authority granted by voters in a constitutional amendment. The whole point was to avoid such costly debacles, and to buffer higher education from the influence of grimy politics. But, as we know, constitutionality isnt a burning concern of current legislative leaders, or of the governor, no matter how many of their dumb moves get stomped in court. In this case, one vain and powerful senator wanted a brand new university, and he didnt want to wait for the Board of Governors, which had already approved a stepped plan for developing Florida Polytechnic. At Alexanders prodding, lawmakers barged ahead and created the school, basically evicted USF and started shoveling money toward Lakeland. Even that towns Republican senator, Paula Dockery, was chagrined. Before the troglodytes took control of Tallahassee, nobody went out and started a public university without a set number of students, without infrastructure, without leadership. Or accreditation. You remember accreditation, right? No biggie. Meanwhile J.D. Alexander is out the door, damage done. Only a coldblooded cynic would wonder if Alexander or any of his pals will benefit from the gush of taxpayer funds being used to construct Useless State. A court could stop the bleeding, but in the meantime applications are being taken for the make-believe schools Board of Trustees. Gov. Scott recently sent out an email seeking candidates. He says hes looking for talented and visionary individuals. Of course! Hell also send his personal unicorn to pick you up and fly you through the fairy dust to Lakeland.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member Employment stats cause for optimism S ometimes the economic news is terribly confusing. Take the topic of unemployment, for example. We read about national statistics, statewide statistics and regional and local statistics. The numbers are up, then theyre down. Or, depending on areas and time periods compared, theyre both. Add to the confusion by throwing all the various definitions into the mix. Workforce surveys look at people who are employed, people who are unemployed and people who are not in the labor force (a category that has subsets of marginally attached to the labor force and discouraged workers). Dont forget the agricultural workers, the part-timers and the self-employed, unpaid family workers, and those working in private households. The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics devotes a lengthy web page just to explain them all. From month to month we are bombarded with reports on the unemployment numbers, which may or may not reflect what we see in our own neighborhoods and among our own friends. Some indications are more cheery, some havent changed much. So, why all the excitement in Citrus County when the most recent unemployment statistics were released? In April, 2012, for the first time since 2008, the average jobless rate in the three-county Workforce Connection region of Citrus, Levy and Marion counties dropped below 10 percent. Two years ago it was nearly 13 percent. In Citrus County the jobless rate was 9.6 percent in April, down a half-percent from the previous month. Does this give a full picture of our economic situation? No. Does it mean almost everyone who wants a job has one? No. But are we going in the right direction? Absolutely. Economists generally agree that a jobless rate somewhere between 4 and 6 percent constitutes full employment, the point at which the number of available jobs matches the number of people seeking work. By that definition, we have a long way to go. Although many are still struggling, we are seeing significant business openings in Citrus County. And maybe jobseekers are adjusting their expectations, taking positions that previously were not of interest. The bottom line? We may not have established our new normal yet, but were on the road to getting firmly back on our feet as a community. THE ISSUE: Jobless rate drops again.OUR OPINION: Going in the right direction.

We have everything. Theyre raising our homeowners insurance. Everythings coming after us. Houses are going down in value and we cant sell them. We dont have jobs. Life is short. Cancer. Heart disease. Why do we need another threat?No dogs on trail Dogs should be banned from the trail and all feral cats captured and pet owners fined for damages their pets cause. In Inverness, we have cats full of fleas, ticks and lice climbing on and destroying screens, killing beautiful birds and using our gardens for toilets and spraying our homes, as well as inconsiderate people walking their dogs on the trail. The stench is disgusting. It gets on shoes and bicycle tires and spreads all kinds of parasites and diseases that harm other pets, wildlife and humans. Please take a poll and see if people want the dogs banned from the trail. County holdings Id like to know why our county got into buying real estate and renting it. They bought about 20 to 25 places here in Beverly Hills and that brings our house value way down and Id like to know where they came up with that money. Outside influences I agree with the letter by Mr. Krieger about lobbyists. Its the influence of special-interest groups and the billions of dollars spent on lobbying. Were all taxpayers. My industry, the health care industry, has enormous pressures in lobbying and its highly regulated and the laws dont make any sense to the people doing the work. And the other industry, the nuclear energy industry, I have family members in that industry and its also so regulated and its so much red tape. But I guess because government is so corrupt, youve got to have lobbyists. I think we should get rid of all the lobbyists, but that wouldnt, thats not going to happen. Theres too much money involved, but its the taxpayers suffering. Algae all over Can the Chronicle help in getting help for the algae problem in Blue Lake Beverly in Beverly Hills? The lake is disgusting. Aquatics said they only handle lakes with boats on them. Ive tried other places. I do not know who else to call to get it to look beautiful again.

Keep animals cool This call is in regards to the summer heat coming. And the people (who) have animals need to make sure they have shelter and a lot of water. If they cant put them in the house, they shouldnt have them.Thanks, maam Id like to thank the woman who found my sunglasses at the bank in Beverly Hills. They were issued to me right after I had cataract surgery and I could not go outside without them. Also, I would like to suggest to her if she ever found another pair of glasses, instead of placing them in her purse, give them to one of the bank tellers. Im sure theyd find the rightful owner, who would be happy to get them back. Provide for petsWhat I have seen lately is disturbing. Some people are taking their pets that spent many years being loving and loyal as part of the family and dumping them at the shelter. They are put in an overcrowded kennel to spend their last days without their families, scared and unloved. We recently had to make the difficult decision regarding our pet. We had her humanely euthanized. It is our responsibility as pet owners to take care of our pets and make those tough decisions. How can anyone abandon a member of their family? It is heart-rending.Law by lobbyists Due to our U.S. Supreme Courts decision to allow unlimited contributions to the PAC groups, we now have the best country in the world that money can buy, and money is buying. The lobbyists outnumber the congressmen 10-1. Think about that. Where do you think our laws are coming from? Not from the lawmen. The lobbyists are making the decisions for us. Mind your flags Myself, I am a retired Army veteran. I have a simple request that groups and people would bone up on the proper respect for the American flag and when theyre taking pictures to be submitted to the Chronicle, make sure youve got the flag in the right position. Its such a simple request.Moving ceremonyHats off to the activity department at Arbor Trails Nursing Home for their afternoon ceremony Friday (May 18) for the veterans and the facilitys patrons who were also veterans. That was very moving and very caring a very good job. Well done.Cut from the topThis cutting a lot of the jobs and things and the cutting out a lot of the school stuff and everything, thats all great. But how come we never hear any cutting on the officials salaries? They have gone way up where they dont need to have them that high. Or cut out some of the programs that they have. Thats where we need to start.Paper waste When I first moved to Citrus County, I got a voter registration card. Every time I voted, I had to show that as identification so Id be able to vote. The past years, they did away with that card. Now they send me a Citrus County voters information card. It says, Not for identification at the polls. I dont understand why they send it. What a waste of taxpayers money. Why dont we just keep the Citrus County voter registration card that I received when I first lived here? To me, its duplication and a lot of work for nothing. You still have to show a photo ID and a signature. This is absolutely ridiculous and a waste of taxpayers money.Litter fighters Thank you to those people who cleaned up all the litter along (U.S.) 41 outside Citrus Springs and toward Dunnellon. Their efforts are very much appreciated. Now, if we can get the lowlifes to quit littering, we can keep this place looking quite pristine. Thank you.Too much testingHow are New Yorks Regents exams being received? Are they successful or not? I agree the FCAT and all these tests they do in Florida are kind of crazy, really. Theres just too much testing going on with all different other types of tests. But I wish someone would just look into New York and see how theyve been doing Regents exams forever and I was just wondering if theres any history saying its a good thing or a bad thing.Naughts and Os It disappoints me to see the number of people in our community who do not know the difference of using the zero and the O in conversations and other subjects, especially the TV anchors, the sports announcers and even some people (who) are in the financial field. Theyll still say OOO, when there is no O. The O is in the alphabet, but zeros are in the numerical numbers. Come on, people. Theres a chance, when youre on TV, to educate the public. Why dont you try to help, including our children?Inverness CheckersTo the person or people who are wishing they had a Checkers down in Crystal River, I guess. Theres a (Checkers) up here alive and well in Inverness right on (State Road) 44. If they want to have some Checkers burgers, theyre welcome to come on up here.AntiheroesLike we dont have enough problems in America with violence. Now they have a program on Discovery TV called Outlaw Empires, where they glorify the gangs. Oh yeah, thats good. Keep it up. Good TV. Great celebrationCongratulations and many thanks to VFW Post 4337 for the wonderful dinner and program held to honor all veterans and especially the World War II veterans who will be flying to Washington, D.C., to see their memorial and other landmarks. Congratulations also to Barbara Mills, organizer, and to the young girl who did a beautiful job singing The Star Spangled Banner solo.Who eats it? I was wondering, if a customer walks out on his bill in a restaurant, is the server responsible for paying that bill? Can the owner of the restaurant make the server pay for that guests check? I was just wondering about some opinions on how that goes.

Webcam spy issues apology NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. A former Rutgers University student convicted of using a webcam to spy on his male roommate kissing another man days before the roommate killed himself, publicly apologized on Tuesday for the first time. Dharun Ravi said in a statement issued through his lawyer he was sorry for what he called his thoughtless, insensitive, immature, stupid and childish choices. Ravis roommate, Tyler Clementi, threw himself from New York Citys George Washington Bridge in 2010. Ravi was sentenced in March to 30 days in jail. He said Tuesday hell start serving his term Thursday in New Brunswick. The sentencing judge had criticized Ravi for a lack of remorse and had told him: I havent heard you apologize once. Ravi, now 20, was convicted of 15 criminal counts, including bias intimidation and invasion of privacy. Spectacle Police: Severed foot sent to officeOTTAWA, Ontario Police said a severed human foot was mailed to the headquarters of Canadas ruling Conservative party. Ottawa police stated Tuesday a box containing a human foot was delivered by Canada Post on Tuesday. Police were called shortly by someone at the party offices reporting a suspicious package. The first officers to arrive saw what appeared to be blood stains on the package. Police in Montreal investigating a torso found in a trash bin were checking on whether there might be a link. Greek experts find Roman wrecks ATHENS, Greece Two Roman-era shipwrecks have been found in deep water off a western Greek island, challenging the conventional theory that ancient shipmasters stuck to coastal routes rather than risking the open sea, an official said Tuesday. Greeces culture ministry said the two third-century wrecks were discovered earlier this month during a survey of an area where a Greek-Italian gas pipeline is to be sunk. They lay between 0.7 to 0.9 miles deep in the sea between Corfu and Italy. That would place them among the deepest known ancient wrecks in the Mediterranean. Angeliki Simossi, head of Greeces underwater antiquities department, said sunken ancient ships are generally found 100 to 130 feet deep. Most scholars believe that ancient traders were unwilling to veer far offshore, unlike warships which were unburdened by ballast and cargo. From wire reports Nation BRIEF World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A12 WEDNESDAY, MAY 30, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated Press A road crosses through an agricultural area of a forest in San Francisco de Macoris, Dominican Republic. Conservationists are establishing a sanctuary they say will be like no other in the Dominican Republic, blending sustainable agriculture with preservation on former pasture land at the edge of a cloud forest that will help protect a songbird called Bicknells thrush, which migrates annually from the northeastern U.S. and southern Canada. Investors saving Dominican forest and an elusive songbird Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO DE MACORIS, Dominican Republic An elusive songbird that wings its way each year from austere mountaintops of the northeastern U.S. to the steamy forests of the Caribbean has inspired the creation of what conservationists hope will be a new model for nature reserves in a country that has long struggled with deforestation. The reserve is taking shape in a lushly overgrown former cattle ranch measuring about 1,000 acres, at the edge of a deep green forest in the Dominican Republics rugged northeast. Conservationminded Dominican and U.S. investors have acquired the plot as a pilot project, hoping to protect what they say is a global biodiversity hotspot thats home to dozens of threatened species. Tentatively known as the Reserva Privada Zorzal, the government sees the reserve as a potential example, showing that such land can be put to better uses than burning down the trees to convert it to pasture, a typical approach in this Caribbean country with only about 40 percent of its forest cover left. Neighboring Haiti, which shares the island of Hispaniola, has virtually none of its forest standing. Jesus Moreno, a Dominican businessman whose family is partially funding the reserve, says the portion of the property where most of the trees have already been removed is well-suited to lowintensity, organic agriculture. He plans to grow macadamia trees and cacao, the raw material in chocolate, while allowing the forest to regenerate, in perpetuity, on three-fourths of the holding. The countrys environment minister is scheduled to inaugurate the reserve project on June 5. I am not trying to make this into a big business and make a lot of money, said Moreno, whose familys ventures also include a nursery that grows macadamia trees and the countrys only factory processing the nuts. We are trying to create a model and break the cycle of destruction. The concept of setting aside private land for conservation in land trusts or easements is an old one, long in use in the U.S. and elsewhere, but still rare in the Dominican Republic, a largely poor country. Some private landowners have set aside tracts for ecotourism and nature reserves, and the government has designated more than 130 public reserves. But much of the countrys forests face threats from development, agriculture and illegal timber harvesting, carving what remains into ever smaller chunks that leave species isolated and vulnerable. In practice, the government reserves usually provide protection to endangered species in name only, said Sesar Rodriguez, the executive director of the Dominican Environmental Consortium. Western nations expel Syrian envoys Associated PressBEIRUT As U.N. officials cited eyewitness accounts of shadowy gunmen slaughtering whole families in their homes, Western nations expelled Syrian diplomats Tuesday in a coordinated move against President Bashar Assads regime over the massacre of more than 100 people. U.N. special envoy Kofi Annan met with Assad in Damascus to try to salvage what was left of a peace plan, which since being brokered six weeks ago has failed to stop any of the violence on the ground. Survivors of the Houla massacre blamed pro-regime gunmen for at least some of the carnage as the killings reverberated inside Syria and beyond, further isolating Assad and embarrassing his few remaining allies. Its very hard for me to describe what I saw, the images were incredibly disturbing, a Houla resident who hid in his home during the massacre told The Associated Press on Tuesday. Women, children without heads, their brains or stomachs spilling out. He said the pro-regime gunmen, known as shabiha, targeted the most vulnerable in the farming villages that make up Houla, a poor area in Homs province. They went after the women, children and elderly, he said, asking that his name not be used out of fear of reprisals. Assads government often deploys fearsome militias that provide muscle for the regime and carry out military-style attacks. They frequently work closely with soldiers and security forces, but the regime never acknowledges their existence, allowing it to deny responsibility for their actions. U.N. peacekeeping chief Herve Ladsous said there are strong suspicions that pro-Assad fighters were responsible for some of the killings, adding that he has seen no reason to believe that third elements or outside forces were involved, although he did not rule it out. The Syrian regime has denied any role in the massacre, blaming the killings on armed terrorists who attacked army positions in the area and slaughtered innocent civilians. It has provided no evidence to support its narrative, nor has it given a death toll. Nature reserve funded Computer virus hits Mideast Associated PressLONDON Iran and other Middle East countries have been hit with a cunning computer virus that can eavesdrop on computer users and their co-workers and filch information from nearby cellphones, cybersecurity experts said Tuesday. And suspicion immediately fell on Israel as the culprit. The Russian Internet security firm Kaspersky Lab ZAO said the Flame virus is unprecedented in size and complexity, with researcher Roel Schouwenberg marveling at its versatility. It can be used to spy on everything that a user is doing, he said. Computers in Iran appear to have been particularly affected, and Kasperskys conclusion that the virus was crafted at the behest of a national government fueled speculation it could be part of an Israeli-backed campaign of electronic sabotage against the Jewish states archenemy. The virus can activate a computers audio systems to listen in on Skype calls or office chatter. It can also take screenshots, log keystrokes and in one of its more novel functions steal data from Bluetoothenabled cellphones. Schouwenberg said there is evidence to suggest the people behind Flame also helped craft Stuxnet, a virus believed to have attacked nuclear centrifuges in Iran in 2010. Many suspect Stuxnet was the work of Israeli intelligence. Tehran has not said whether it lost any data to Flame, but a unit of the Iranian communications and information technology ministry said it has produced an anti-virus capable of identifying and removing Flame from its computers. Israels vice premier did little to deflect suspicion about the countrys possible involvement in the attack. Whoever sees the Iranian threat as a significant threat is likely to take various steps, including these, to hobble it, Moshe Yaalon told Army Radio when asked about Flame. Israel is blessed with high technology, and we boast tools that open all sorts of opportunities for us. Researchers not involved in Flames discovery were more skeptical of its sophistication than Kaspersky, with Richard Bejtlich of Virginia-based Mandiant saying the virus appeared similar to spyware used by the German government to monitor criminal suspects. There have been tools like this employed by highend teams for many years, he said. Colorado-based Webroot said the virus wasnt as complex or as stealthy as Stuxnet and was a relatively easy threat to identify. Dharun Ravi to serve 30 days in jail. Authors son seeks Malcolm X letter at Syracuse Associated PressALBANY, N.Y. The son of Malcolm Xs biographer is asking Syracuse University to hand over a letter in which the slain activist writes about his shifting views on race relations, claiming his family is the rightful owner. Malcolm X wrote to Alex Haley, his collaborator for The Autobiography of Malcolm X, from Saudi Arabia in April 1964, about 10 months before he was gunned down at a New York City hotel ballroom. The publisher of the autobiography later gave the letter to Syracuse University as part of a larger cache of papers to be used by researchers. But Haleys son, William Haley, said the publisher never had legal title to the letter and could not give it away. His lawyer said Tuesday he plans to make a legal demand this week for the letter, which he believes is worth at least $650,000. The history is important for us as a family, the legacy, William Haley said. Haley said he was acting on behalf of himself and his two sisters. Haley said its possible the family would decide to sell the letter, but that would be a group decision. Alex Haley died in 1992. So much of AfricanAmerican history gets lost and is sometimes not in the place where we prefer it to be, Haley said. Malcolm Xs letter, written after a pilgrimage to Mecca, addresses the recent time he spent with Muslims whose skin was the whitest of white. In fact, what I have seen and experienced on this pilgrimage has forced me to re arrange much of my thought patterns, and to toss aside some of my previous conclusions, he wrote. The letter was sent to publisher Grove Press for inclusion in the autobiography, which was first published in 1965. Grove included the letter in files it gave to Syracuse University in 1969. Haleys attorney, Gregory J. Reed of Detroit, said Haley passed along the letter to Grove only so it could be included in the autobiography and that Grove never had legal title. Haley said he is acting now because he only found out about details of the letter recently after talking to Reed, who collects Malcolm X material.

Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Philip Humber won for the first time since throwing a perfect game in April, and the Chicago White Sox extended their winning streak to seven games by beating the Tampa Bay Rays 7-2 on Tuesday night. Hideki Matsui homered in his Tampa Bay debut. The Rays purchased the 2009 World Series MVPs contract from Triple-A Durham before the game. Humber (2-2) was 0-2 with an 8.22 ERA over six starts since his gem against Seattle on April 21. The right-hander allowed two runs and five hits over seven innings Tuesday. Alexei Ramirez and Dayan Viciedo both had two RBIs for the White Sox, who have won six in a row on the road. Ramirez had an RBI double during a five-run sixth against James Shields (6-3) as Chicago took a 6-2 lead. A.J. Pierzynski, Viciedo and Orlando Hudson hit run-scoring singles, while Alejandro De Aza drove in a run with a grounder. Shields gave up six runs and 10 hits in six innings. Matsui put the Rays ahead 2-0 on a long homer to right off Humber in the fourth. It was his first homer since Sept. 19 against Texas while with Oakland. Matsui, who turns 38 on June 12, started in left field. He played 13 games with Durham after signing a minor league contract with Tampa Bay on April 30. The White Sox got to 2-1 in the fifth when Viciedo singled, went to third when Shields was charged with an error for an errant pickoff attempt and scored on Ramirezs single. Viciedo hit a solo shot in the eighth. The White Sox have homered in 15 consecutive games. Chicagos Paul Konerko went 0 for 4, including three strikeouts, to stop his 14-game hitting streak.

Clemens remains charged with two counts of perjury and three counts of making false statements before Congress, along with 13 other obstructive acts. All relate to Clemens testimony before Congress at a 2008 hearing and his deposition that preceded it. One of the statements dismissed was Clemens contention he had no idea that former Sen. George Mitchell wanted to talk with him in preparation for the 2007 Mitchell Report on drugs in baseball. Prosecutors rested their case Tuesday. The judge ruled against Clemens request for a dismissal of all charges. Police: Boxer was driving too fast for conditions MARIETTA, Ga. Boxer Paul Williams was driving his modified sport motorcycle too fast for conditions when he crashed into an embankment, police said Tuesday. Williams was paralyzed and has no movement from the waist down after Sundays crash in Marietta, northwest of Atlanta, his manager George Peterson said. The 30-year-old athlete severed his spinal cord after falling on his back and head when he was thrown from his motorcycle, Peterson said. Police said he could not negotiate a curve, and the bike slammed into the embankment. Judge dismisses NFL retiree lawsuit versus union MINNEAPOLIS A lawsuit filed against the NFL Players Association by retirees has been dismissed. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson issued her order Tuesday from St. Paul, Minn. Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive end Carl Eller, a former Minnesota Vikings star, was the lead plaintiff in the complaint that argued current players and their attorneys had no right to bargain with NFL owners about retiree benefits because they werent legally a union last summer.From wire reports Associated PressNEWARK, N.J. A little less than two years after battling for the services of high-scoring free agent forward Ilya Kovalchuk, the New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings are going after a bigger prize the Stanley Cup. To tell the truth, hardly anyone picked the Devils and Kings to get this far. The odds were lotterylike, and the teams beat them with authority in reaching a series that will open Wednesday at the Prudential Center. You hear it every year, but it doesnt get old: Once you make it in, you have a chance to get here, Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. I think thats one thing that the prognosticators dont consider. I always put it this way: When the playoffs start, the clocks should be reset. Because everyones starting over, and all 16 teams have a shot to win it all. I think both teams would agree with that this year. Led by Kovalchuk and a 40-year-old Martin Brodeur, the Devils are just the second No. 6 seed to reach the final. The 2004 Calgary Flames, who were coached by Sutter, were the other. Riding the goaltending of Jonathan Quick, the Kings overcame even bigger obstacles. They are only the second No. 8 seed Kings, Devils face off in Stanley Cup finals tonight Roger Clemens Paul Williams Associated Press ABOVE: Serena Williams reacts shortly before losing to Frances Virginie Razzano during their first-round match Tuesday in the French Open tennis tournament at Roland Garros stadium in Paris. BELOW: Razzano reacts after defeating Williams 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3. Down and out at Roland Garros stadium Associated PressPARIS For more than a decade, whatever the state of her health or her game, no matter the opponent or arena, Serena Williams always won first-round matches at Grand Slam tournaments. Always. Until Tuesday at the French Open. Until Williams came within two points of victory nine times, yet remarkably failed to close the deal against unheralded and 111th-ranked Virginie Razzano of France. Until a theatrical, 23-minute final game filled with 30 points, more than enough for an entire set, featuring ebbs and flows, high-pressure shotmaking and nerves and even thunderous protests from the crowd when the chair umpire docked Razzano a point. That look-awayand-you-miss-something game included five wasted break points for Williams, and seven match points that she saved, until Razzano finally converted her eighth, 3 hours and 3 minutes after they began playing. All told, until Tuesday, Williams was 46 for 46 in openers at tennis top venues, and those encounters tended to be routine and drama-free, befitting a woman so good the goal and 13 times, the end result was a major championship. Not this time. Now Williams first-round Grand Slam record is 46-1 after as stunning a denouement as could be in a 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3 loss to Razzano on the red clay at Roland Garros. The fifth-seeded Williams, considered by many a pre-tournament favorite, led 5-1 in the second-set tiebreaker, before dropping the next 13 points in a row. Suddenly, her shots didnt always carry their usual oomph; her court coverage was ordinary. Ive been through so much in my life, and ... Im not happy, by no means, said Williams, her eyes welling with tears. I just always think things can be worse. The 30-year-old American returned to action last year after missing about 10 months because of a series of health scares, including two foot operations and blood clots, a scary stretch she said altered her world view. The rowdy spectators in Court Philippe Chatrier would have been pulling for Razzano anyway, of course, because of her citizenship. But their support was particularly strong because of her recent heartbreak, wellknown in France: Razzanos fiance Stephane Vidal, also her longtime coach died at age 32 of a brain tumor in May 2011, a little more than a week before her first-round match at last years French Open.

P ine Barrens No. 10 is a wonderful par 3 that could easily be a signature hole for this course. This is the only par 3 on Pine Barrens that does not have any sand close to the green. With newly added tees in 2010, this hole plays at a maximum length of 228 yards. Most players will be challenged when using the yardage from the original design which is 185. Hemmed in by pine trees on both sides and a waste area that runs almost the entire length of the hole, players must fly their golf ball the entire length of the hole. A low area is short and to the left of the green, which funnels any wayward golf shots to this collection area. With a severe slope at the front of the green, it is very difficult to make your par from this area. Tee shotThe tee shot must carry all the way to the hole on the green. The entire length of the hole is relatively flat; therefore, club selection will only vary because of wind conditions. The green slopes slightly from back to front, but more severely from right to left as you look at the hole. Visible from the tee is the steep slope that fronts the green causing golfers to think carefully when making a club selection. Mis-hit golf shots that land on the front of the green will roll back into the fairway because of this steep false front. For most players, tee shots on par 3s tend to land short of the flagstick and/or green. Very rarely do you find individuals who hit their golf balls over the green on a par 3, which is the place you would like to miss the green on this particular hole. On the greenThe ideal tee shot will be to the back half of the green and favoring the right half of this wide green. Although this may present a slightly downhill putt, there is more area of green to land your ball. On these difficult par 3s, you feel as though you have won a small victory when walking off this hole with a par 3. Pros tipThe majority of golfers hit too little club and consequently do not fly the golf ball far enough to get to the golf hole. It is always a good idea to swing one more club, take an easier and smoother swing that will promote better rhythm and timing in the golf swing. Because of the pine trees that line both sides of this hole, you need to know the direction of the wind to select the correct club to hit from the tee. On this particular hole, it is better to be over the green than to be short; therefore, choose the club that will more than cover the distance to the flagstick. Ranked No. 2 in Florida by GolfWeek as the best courses you can play, Pine Barrens is a golf course that avid golfers must play. This hole could easily be considered a signature hole as it truly defines what the Pine Barrens make-up and character are all about, gentle rolling terrain with sand and pine trees. Scott Wyckoff is the general manager and PGA golf professional at World Woods Golf Club.

BOWLERS OF THE WEEK: Tammy Woodburn, 130 pins over her average, and Jack Trafalski, 108 pins over his average. D OUG F ERGUSON AP Golf WriterDUBLIN, Ohio Bubba Watson had a 3-iron, a small audience and a point to prove. The flag was 251 yards away, with a light wind out of the right. With an open stance, he hit a high cut and begged it to carry the bunker, which it barely did. Next, he aimed some 15 yards to the left of the green and hit a bullet with a slight hook that landed on the back corner of the green. Still got it! Watson jokingly proclaimed. He hasnt forgotten how to play. He hasnt been gone from the game that long, though it sure seems that way. It has been more than seven weeks since Watson hit that wild hook with a wedge out of the Georgia pines and onto the 10th green to win the Masters in a playoff. He became an overnight sensation in a green jacket, and then he virtually disappeared from the golf scene. He has played only one tournament since, in New Orleans, and only because he was the defending champion. The reminder of how long Watson has stayed away from golf came on the practice range Tuesday at Muirfield Village. With the U.S. Open only two weeks away, players were still congratulating him on winning the last major two months ago. Thats not necessarily a bad thing. Winning majors can be a life-changing experience for everyone except those who seem to win them all the time. Few, however, had this many life-changing moments away from golf as Watson in such a short time. He and his wife, Angie, adopted a baby boy two weeks before he became a Masters champion. The adoption process is still not finished, though a few months doesnt seem like much considering they began thinking about adoption four years ago. Watson is selling two houses and trying to find a home in Orlando. (The baby was born in Florida.) And if thats not enough, he has organized Bubba Bash on Tuesday night with some 10 Christian bands to raise money for a hospital in Kenya. Typical of a guy named Bubba, he has arranged for Waffle House to provide the backstage meals. A lot of stuff going on in our life, Watson said. A lot of positive things, nothing bad. But its just different changes. Perhaps it shouldnt be surprising Watson replied to a fan on Twitter on Friday during The Players Championship that hes not missing golf at all. You can turn your phone off or lock down yourself at Isleworth and nobody can get to you, and just spend time with the family, play golf when I want to, Watson said. Its been a good thing. Its been relaxing, rewarding. Its been fun. The Memorial boasts a strong field, as usual, with defending champion Steve Stricker, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy and Hunter Mahan leading the list of top players. Dustin Johnson returns from a back injury, his first tournament since Doral the second week of March. Watson adds another layer of intrigue, mainly because he is a major champion who has accumulated more rust than riches in the past two months.

Associated Press Defending champion Rafael Nadal returns the ball to Simone Bolelli during their first round match Tuesday in the French Open at Roland Garros stadium in Paris. He had encouraged her to go ahead and enter the tournament, so she did, honoring his memory by stepping on court to play, a black ribbon pinned to her shirt. When she walked out of the locker room for what turned out to be a straight-set loss, she wore a gold chain that Vidal had given her as a Valentines Day gift a few years earlier. Honestly, the past is the past, Razzano said Tuesday, when she dealt with leg cramps starting in the second set. I think now I did my mourning. I feel good today. It took time. Said Williams: I know of her story and her husband. We all have stories. I mean, I almost died, and Venus is struggling herself. So, you know, its life. You know, it just depends on how you deal with it. She obviously is dealing with it really well. Williams exit was by far the most newsworthy development on Day 3 at Roland Garros, where Maria Sharapova won 6-0, 6-0, and Rafael Nadal began his bid for a record seventh French Open championship with a straight-set victory. Williams entered Tuesday having won her previous 17 matches, all on clay. She withdrew before what would have been her most recent match, a semifinal at the Italian Open on May 19, citing a bad lower back, but said Friday she was better, then refused to place blame on that injury after being beaten by Razzano. No, no, no. I didnt feel anything abnormal, said Williams, who counts the 2002 French Open among her 13 Grand Slam singles trophies. I was 100 percent healthy. Occasionally after losing points, Williams would bend forward and lean on her racket frame, as though perhaps stretching her lower back. She also clutched at that spot and whacked her racket there after miscues. And there were plenty of those, 47 in all, 11 more than her foe.

The second-seeded Nadal made only 18 unforced errors Tuesday, fewer than half as many as his opponent. The Spaniard improved to 46-1 at the clay-court Grand Slam tournament. His only loss came in the fourth round in 2009, against Robin Soderling. Nadal won the French Open every year from 2005-08, and again in 2010 and 2011. Bjorn Borg is the only other man with six titles at Roland Garros. Nadal also is seeking his 11th Grand Slam trophy overall, which would pull him even with Borg and Rod Laver for fourth most in tennis history.Sharapova begins French Open with 6-0, 6-0 victoryPARIS Maria Sharapova got off to a quick start at the French Open, winning her first-round match 6-0, 6-0 in 48 minutes. The second-seeded Sharapova never gave 78th-ranked Alexandra Cadantu of Romania a chance Tuesday, compiling an 18-0 edge in winners. Sharapova won 51 points and lost only 18. The Russian is trying to complete a career Grand Slam by winning the championship at Roland Garros. She has won three major titles but never been to a final at the French Open. The 22-year-old Cadantu has never beaten someone ranked in the top 60, falling to 0-6 in such matches. Shes also now 0-2 in Grand Slam matches. From wire reports Tennis BRIEFS

Associated PressLANDOVER, Md. The nation known for jogo bonito or the beautiful game poses a unique challenge for the U.S. soccer team. While not as significant as a pair of World Cup qualifiers next month, it is a test for the Americans on how far theyve come since Jurgen Klinsmann took over as coach last summer. We understand what Brazil presents. Were going to go for it, Landon Donovan said Tuesday, a day before the Americans play the Selecao in the second of five matches for the U.S. in an 18-day span. A record five-time World Cup champion, Brazil has a youthful roster headed by Neymar, the 20-year-old Santos star coveted by many of Europes top clubs. Looking ahead to the Olympics, which limits teams to mostly players under 23, coach Mano Menezes has a roster that includes AC Milans Alexandre Pato, Tottenhams Sandro, Real Madrids Marcelo and Portos Hulk. Its obviously a great benchmark to see how we can deal with a system like that, Klinsmann said. They have their freely flowing game. After taking a White House tour, the Americans worked out at FedEx Field, where a crowd of more than 56,000 is expected for the match. Clint Dempsey has recovered from a groin injury that caused him to miss Fulhams season finale on May 19, but said hes not fit to play 90 minutes. Still, he could play part of the way and pair with Donovan for the first time under Klinsmann, the former German national team star and coach who replaced Bob Bradley last July 29. Obviously, Im not 90 minutes fit, but Im ready to go in whatever capacity, Dempsey said. Dempsey worked on fitness after training with Jozy Altidore, who joined the team Monday and completed the 23-man roster. He was not released by his club AZ Alkmaar before yesterday, which made me very angry, and it put Jozy in a very difficult position because he had a couple weeks off, Klinsmann said. The guys that came in here on the 15th of May, they trained sometimes three sessions a day, and hes behind them. Brazil is 15-1 against the Americans and has outscored them 31-10. The U.S. victory came in the semifinals of the 1998 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Three years ago, the U.S. took a two-goal lead in the first half of the FIFA Confederations Cup final in South Africa only to lose 3-2. The defeat lingers in the memories of the American players. It still hurts to be so close to winning in a major final, goalkeeper Tim Howard said. But thats life, thats football. And it just shows you how potent they can be.

The Edmonton Oilers were the first in 2006. Its all about winning here, and eliminating distractions and doing what it takes to be successful, said Brodeur, who led the Devils to Cups in 1995, 2000 and 2003. Thats worked for us this year, and really my entire career. For me, to be a part of that is great. To come to the rink every day during my career, knowing we had a chance to win every night is something special. Ive had that my whole career here, and thats been a great ride. While this isnt a glamour series that boasts the likes of a Sidney Crosby, a Steven Stamkos or even a Henrik Lundqvist, it has elements that should help the NHL, and prove entertaining on the ice. To start, this is an EastWest series featuring two of the nations biggest media markets in Los Angeles and the New York metropolitan area.

Los Angeles beat No. 1 Vancouver 4-1, No. 2 St. Louis 4-0, and No. 3 Phoenix 4-1. 2011-12 series record: Devils 2-0 (one win in shootout). Playoff History: First meeting. New Jersey: The Devils are in the Stanley Cup finals for the fifth time and are looking for their fourth title. New Jersey captured the Cup in 1995, 2000 and 2003, with its only finals loss to Colorado in 2001. ... Martin Brodeur has been there for all the finals appearances, and could call it a career at age 40 once this series is over win or lose. Forward Patrik Elias has been in all of New Jerseys trips to the finals, except for the first in 1995. ... Brodeur injured his right shoulder against the Kings on Oct. 13 and missed six games. He didnt earn his first win of the season until Nov. 5. Backup goalie Johan Hedberg earned both of New Jerseys wins over the Kings, with the first coming in relief after Brodeur was injured. Hedberg, who has played only 36 minutes in the playoffs this season, was in for all but one period in the regular-season games against Los Angeles. He stopped 31 Kings shots on Oct. 25 for his 18th NHL shutout. ... Captain Zach Parise leads the Devils with seven playoff goals and is second with 14 points. He led the way in the conference finals against the Rangers when he had six points (3 goals, 3 assists) in the series. This could be the last hurrah for Parise with New Jersey as he is slated to become an unrestricted free agent July 1. ... The Devils finished with 102 regular-season points, but that was only good for fourth best in the Atlantic Division. The finals will be the first series this year in which New Jersey has home-ice advantage. Los Angeles: The Kings have reached the finals for just the second time in team history. Los Angeles is still looking for its first Stanley Cup championship, having lost in five games to Montreal in 1993. ... The Kings have won an NHL-record eight straight road playoff games the first team to do it in one playoff year including three at Phoenix in the Western Conference finals. Los Angeles, which has outscored opponents 30-13 in its road games, has won 10 straight away from home a record for multiple years. The Kings are the first team to take an undefeated road record into the finals since the conference format started in 1994. ... The Kings are the second No. 8 seed to get to the finals under the current postseason format and the first to eliminate the top three seeded teams in the conference in succession. ... Los Angeles has excelled behind Vezina Trophy finalist Jonathan Quick, who is 12-2 with a 1.54 goals-against average and .946 save percentage in the playoffs. He has allowed only 22 goals in 14 games. ... On offense, the Kings are paced by their top line of captain Dustin Brown, Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams. That trio was especially dominant in the second-round win over St. Louis when they combined for six goals and nine assists in the four-game sweep. ... Left wing Simon Gagne could be a Kings wild card, having been medically cleared to play for the first time since a concussion sidelined him Dec. 26. It might take another injury for a lineup spot to open up for Gagne, who made it to the Cup finals two years ago with Philadelphia. Outlook: The Kings show how they got this far in a highly competitive series, but Brodeur and Devils get the best of Quick and capture the Cup in California. Devils in 6. Associated PressNEW YORK After the worst season in NBA history, the Charlotte Bobcats could use a player such as Anthony Davis. Unfortunately for Michael Jordans team, its been a long time since lottery luck shined on the team needing it most. The Bobcats hope the trend ends Wednesday, when they have the best odds of earning the No. 1 pick in next months draft. Charlotte has a 25 percent chance of victory, the reward for its 7-59 record that was the lowest winning percentage (.106) in league history. Davis is the college player of the year after leading Kentucky to the national championship. He is considered the top prize available. Not since 2004, when the Orlando Magic drafted Dwight Howard, has the team with the worst record won the lottery. Minnesota dropped a spot to second last year, when the Cleveland Cavaliers moved up with a pick owed to them by the Los Angeles Clippers and took Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving. The Bobcats, who dropped their final 23 games, appear in much more dire straits than some teams that were able to recover from their lottery letdowns. You could make the case that they dont have, at any position, a top-15 player at their position. So theyre not in the top half of starters at any place on their roster, which is a tough place to be and thats why a guy like Anthony Davis, if they do draft him, hes going to be expected to turn it around. But there are no quick fixes, former NBA coach and current ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy said Tuesday during a conference call. The Washington Wizards have a 19.9 percent chance of picking first, while Cleveland (13.8 percent) and New Orleans (13.7) have the nextbest chances. The lottery is back in New York for the first time since 1993, moving to the Disney/ ABC Times Square Studio from its longtime home in Secaucus, N.J. because the NBA Entertainment facility there no longer houses a television studio. Maybe thats a good omen for the Nets, who are also going from New Jersey to New York. The now Brooklyn Nets have a 7.5 percent chance of moving up from the No. 6 spot to land the top pick, and if they dont end up in the top three their selection goes to Portland as part of this seasons Gerald Wallace trade. The Nets are one of the recent teams that came up empty after a dismal season, settling for the No. 3 pick two years ago after a 70-loss season. Though there are occasional complaints about the format, NBA Commissioner David Stern has said theres been little call to change it. Bobcats hope draft lottery helps Associated Press The United States Landon Donovan (10) is tripped up by Scotlands Scott Brown, right, during the first half of an exhibition soccer match Saturday, May 26,in Jacksonville, Fla. United States won 5-1. Football BRIEFS Dolphins to appear on Hard KnocksNEW YORK The Miami Dolphins will appear on Hard Knocks this summer. HBO announced Tuesday the Dolphins would be the newest subject of its popular reality series documenting NFL training camps. The seventh season premieres Aug. 7, with four more one-hour episodes airing on subsequent Tuesdays. Coming off a 6-10 season, Miami has a new coach in Joe Philbin. He said the Dolphins involvement in the show was a football decision made with the blessing of owner Stephen Ross. This season marks the 40th anniversary of the Dolphins undefeated championship squad the last NFL club to win the Super Bowl with a perfect record. Miamis most recent title came a year later, in 1974. Hard Knocks was not produced last year because of the NFL lockout.Jaguars sign No. 2 pick defensive end Branch JACKSONVILLE, Fla. The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed 2012 second-round draft pick Andre Branch, the 38th overall pick in April. The defensive end becomes the first of the teams six draft picks to sign a contract. Branch played for four years at Clemson, where he made 27 starts. He had 17 1/2 sacks, 33 1/2 tackles for loss and 197 overall tackles in his career. Hes the first player from Clemson drafted by the Jaguars. As a senior, Branch was a team captain and led the ACC with 10 1/2 sacks. He also led the team with 17 tackles for loss and had a career-best 85 tackles. SEC coaches want football playoffDESTIN The Southeastern Conference is looking out for No. 1. Maybe even No. 2. Football coaches from the powerhouse and recently expanded league were in unison Tuesday that they want a proposed four-team playoff to include the best teams in the country and not be tied to conference champions. Their solidarity comes as no surprise considering the league has won six consecutive Bowl Championship Series national titles, with the latest one coming when Alabama knocked off LSU after not winning its division or even reaching the league championship game. Florida coach Will Muschamp summed up the SECs stance by saying, In our league, we might have four of the best teams in the country. SEC Commissioner Mike Slive has been a driving force behind a proposed playoff for years, and remains as committed to getting it done this summer. The playoff system could debut as early as the 2014 season, replacing a current No.1 vs. No. 2 BCS championship matchup that has rotated among the Sugar, Orange, Fiesta and Rose Bowl sites. From wire reports Associated Press After the worst season in league history, Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan and his team hope their 25 percent chance of earning the No. 1 pick in the lottery Wednesday for next months draft pays off.

Braves snap 8-game losing streak in 5-4 victory over Cards Associated PressMIAMI Anibal Sanchez allowed only an unearned run in seven innings to remain unbeaten in 19 starts against Washington, and the Miami Marlins beat the Nationals 3-1 Tuesday night to break the franchise record for victories in a month. The Marlins are 20-8 since May 1, best in the majors, and theyre six games above .500 for the first time since last June 4. Greg Dobbs, pinch-hitting for Sanchez, drove in the run that put Miami ahead to stay with a sacrifice fly in the seventh. Hanley Ramirez hit his eighth homer leading off the eighth. Sanchez (3-3) allowed only three hits and one walk and lowered his ERA to 2.56. Edwin Jackson (1-3) allowed only two runs, one earned, in 6 2/3 innings.NATIONAL LEAGUE Braves 5, Cardinals 4ATLANTA Dan Uggla hit a three-run homer, Michael Bourn also went deep and the Atlanta Braves snapped their longest losing streak in more than two years, holding off the St. Louis Cardinals 5-4 after an eight-game skid. Bourn led off the bottom of the first with his fifth homer of the season, tying a career high. Uggla made it 4-0 in the third, sending one into the seats in left-center. Randall Delgado (3-5) worked into the sixth, allowing three runs, and the Cardinals closed within a run in the seventh on Yadier Molinas third RBI of the night, a run-scoring single. Molina went 4-for-4, including a solo homer. But Craig Kimbrel got the final three outs for his 14th save in 15 chances. Jake Westbrook (4-4) took the loss.Mets 6, Phillies 3 NEW YORK Jeremy Hefner earned his first victory in the majors, highlighting the occasion by homering for his first big league hit as the New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-3. The 26-year-old rookie became the first major league pitcher to hit his first homer in his first win since 2002, when Dennis Tankersley did it with San Diego, STATS LLC said. Pinch-hitter Scott Hairston had a tworun homer and newcomer Omar Quintanilla doubled twice and singled to help New York win for the fourth time in five games. After a storm delay of 64 minutes in the eighth inning, the Mets improved to 6-2 against Philadelphia this year.Cubs 5, Padres 3CHICAGO Alfonso Soriano homered, Jeff Samardzija struck out eight in seven innings and the Chicago Cubs beat the San Diego Padres 5-3. Soriano hit a solo homer to center field in the sixth. After going homerless in his first 30 games this season, Soriano has seven home runs in his last 13 games. Samardzija (5-3) allowed eight hits and was one strikeout from tying his career high. He departed after Will Venables RBI triple with no outs in the eighth. Shawn Camp kept the lead intact, getting Carlos Quentin on a fly to left to end the inning. James Russell got the last two outs for his first career save. Quentin homered and had three hits for San Diego. His drive on the first pitch of the fifth was his first home run as a Padre. AMERICAN LEAGUE Royals 8, Indians 2 CLEVELAND Mike Moustakas had a career-best four RBIs to help rookie Will Smith get his first major league win, leading the Kansas City Royals to an 8-2 win over the Cleveland Indians.. Moustakas hit a two-run homer off Justin Masterson (2-4) in the first and singled in two runs in the second. That was more than enough support for Smith (1-1), who allowed two runs and four hits in six innings. The left-hander rebounded nicely after being thumped by the New York Yankees in his major league debut last week. Humberto Quintero added two RBIs as the Royals, despite three errors and 12 strikeouts, improved to 15-11 on the road. Masterson, who beat Detroits Justin Verlander in his previous start, allowed seven earned runs in six innings. Blue Jays 8, Orioles 6 TORONTO Brett Lawrie had three hits and three RBIs, Ricky Romero won for the seventh time in nine starts against Baltimore and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the slumping Orioles 8-6. The bottom three hitters in Torontos lineup, Lawrie, David Cooper and Rajai Davis, went a combined 8 for 12 with six RBIs and scored four runs. Lawrie also made a spectacular sliding catch in foul territory for the second out of the ninth inning. Adam Jones hit two homers, extending his hitting streak to 20 games, and Chris Davis added a two-run drive but it wasnt enough for Baltimore. The Orioles have lost four straight and seven of nine, but remain tied with Tampa Bay atop the AL East.Red Sox 6, Tigers 3BOSTON David Ortiz homered and hit two doubles, and the Boston Red Sox moved above .500 for the first time this season, tagging Justin Verlander for 10 hits in a 6-3 win over the Detroit Tigers. Verlander (5-3) lost his second straight start since taking a no-hitter into the ninth inning against Pittsburgh on May 18. The reigning American League MVP and Cy Young winner allowed five runs on 10 hits, struck out seven and walked one in six innings. The Red Sox improved to 25-24, finally achieving a winning record after going 05 in games that could have put them above .500.

It used to be that baseball fans would head for the concourse to grab a beer between innings, a cold one as much a part of Americas pastime as hotdogs and Cracker Jack. Now they file up the aisles in search of Belgian-style pale ale. During a period of decline in overall beer consumption, the market for craft brews is rapidly expanding, and the trend is evident at ballparks from coast to coast. Many stadiums offer upward of 60 varieties, everything from Budweiser and Coors Light to Henry Weinhards IPA. In the mood for a porter, with a hint of chocolate and caramel? Ask for a Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald at the Irish pub inside Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Taste trending toward Scottish ale? Order up Erie Brewing Companys Railbender Ale at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, one of the most beer-friendly ballparks in baseball. Looking for something with a cloudy appearance and citrusy flavor? You can find Boulevards Unfiltered Wheat at stands throughout Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. Every market is different, said Bob Sullivan, vice president of sales and marketing for Boulevard Brewing Company. But what youre seeing now is that stadiums are saying, We really need to carry the local beers. People pay a lot of money for their season tickets, and theres some obligation to give them what they want. The big breweries still rule the ballpark Miller Park and Busch Stadium, anyone? They have the unique ability to spend lavishly on marketing: billboards inside and outside the gates, subway cars on the way to Yankee Stadium, television and radio spots during a broadcast. Smaller brewers simply cant compete. Then theres the fact that AnheuserBusch and Major League Baseball renewed their exclusive sponsorship deal in 2010, making Budweiser the leagues official beer. Craft beers are proving a hit in baseball parks

CNN hiring chef for weekend show NEW YORK Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain will begin hosting a new show next year on of all places the news network CNN. The weekend show on food and travel represents a departure for CNN in both content and procedure. CNN usually does its programming in-house, but in this case an outside production company tied to Bourdain will make the series. It will air Sunday nights in prime time and be repeated Saturday nights. Bourdain has done programs on both the Travel Channel and Food Network, and also appeared in the Bravo competition Top Chef. His CNN show will feature cultures around the world through the prism of dining traditions. Musical eyes Broadway spot NEW YORK A musical based on the documentary Hands on a Hardbody will be groping its way to Broadway. Producers said Tuesday the show, with a book by Doug Wright and songs by Trey Anastasio and Amanda Green will try to make it to New York during the 2012-13 season following a tune-up this spring at the La Jolla Playhouse. The musical is based on the 1997 documentary of the same name about a truck giveaway contest in which participants try to keep their hand on the vehicle the longest. Wedding proposal goes viral online PORTLAND, Ore. A video of a Portland mans elaborate, choreographed marriage proposal to his girlfriend has notched 5 million hits on YouTube and raised the bar for unmarried men everywhere. The video, shot last week near the home of Isaac Lambs parents, begins with his brother tucking Lambs girlfriend, Amy Frankel into the back of an SUV with a pair of headphones. The song Marry You by Bruno Mars starts to play as the SUV drives slowly down the street, and friends and neighbors begin appearing before Frankel, lip-synching and dancing to the music. Eventually, about 60 people are serenading Frankel in the street. Frankel, by the way, said yes. Lambs proposal is at http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v5_v7QrIW0zY Associated PressLOS ANGELES Summer television used to mean reruns. This year its gone to the dogs. Several new shows star dogs and their owners in need of help. CBS has the lone network show in Dogs in the City, starring comic, dog trainer and businessman Justin Silver. Its joined by documentaries on PBS and HBO and a series in the works for the Disney Channel, among others. Each Wednesday at 8 p.m., beginning May 30, Silver will try to help hound and human tackle unsettling problems like joint custody after divorce or dealing with significant others who just moved in. Is man or mutt usually to blame for problems? Its 50-50, he said, but a dogs behavior is shaped by the people in its life. Silver says he wont be the one solving problems, even though he jokes that he speaks dog. Instead, he will provide techniques and experiences so owners can fix their own problems. Its that old adage: Give a man a fish and youll fill his belly. Teach him how to fish and hell never starve. I am teaching you how to fish. But no one learns how to fish perfectly in one hour. It takes constant practice. If intervention is needed, he will call on his own pit bulls, Chiquita and Pacino. I use my dogs as much as possible because the thing that influences dogs most is other balanced dogs, he said. Dogs in the City seems to have a lot in common with The Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan on the National Geographic Channel and Its Me or the Dog with Victoria Stilwell on Animal Planet. Bad Dog! is another Animal Planet show, although it uses videotape to capture misbehavior in a test of sorts to see how far an owners love will stretch. Documentaries airing in May and June explore the rewards and redemption of shelter dogs. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says between 5 million and 7 million companion animals enter shelters every year and between 3 million and 4 million of them are euthanized. Shelter Me, a PBS documentary, is narrated by actress Katherine Heigl and is sponsored by the pet food company co-owned by Ellen DeGeneres. It follows an animal control officer, adoption workers, female inmates who train rescue dogs, and vets who acquire former shelter dogs. Shelter Me is about the lives that are changed when shelter pets are given a second chance, Heigl said. Andrew J. Trotto, an Army veteran from Mission Viejo, was teamed up with Teka, a black Lab rescued from a Wyoming shelter by Freedom Service Dogs in Englewood, Colo. If it wasnt for her, Id be dead right now, Trotto says in the film. I was an evil person. I hated you or wanted to kill you, he said, describing the PTSD demons that haunted him. People say suicide is selfish. But when you are in the zone, youre not thinking about that. The terror in your head drives you insane. She (Teka) will wake me up out of my night terrors. Shelter Me will air across the country in late May and June. HBO will premiere a documentary called One Nation Under Dog: Stories of Fear, Loss & Betrayal on June 18 at 9 p.m. The film looks at Americas obsession with dogs, how far individuals will go for their pets and what it will take for people across the country to treat all dogs humanely. The 73-minute documentary looks at the odds stacked against shelter dogs, spay and neuter education, puppy mills, dog bite victims and how some owners respond when their dog attacks. Summer series Birthday Even if outside factors seem to be slowing down your progress somewhat in the year ahead, know that if you change paths it might make a difference. If thats the case, chances are itll make you feel more satisfied. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Attend to all your responsibilities first thing that way the boss might not mind too much if you take a longer break in the afternoon or even leave a bit early for an appointment. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Avoid an inclination to make a mountain out of any minor mishap that might occur today. Its only when we blow things totally out of proportion that they become a real problem. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) When there is something of material wealth at stake that you hope to acquire, youre likely to find the way to do so by making and following a detailed plan. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Even if you believe a certain objective is easily attainable, dont assume its a foregone conclusion. There may be a surprise or two, so you should keep your ideas flexible. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Its kind to give to those in need, but remember, charity should first begin at home, or at least within your intimate circle of good friends. Help those you personally know before aiding strangers. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Accept others for who they are and not for what you hope to get out of them. If you want support for something important, deal with people realistically and sincerely. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If you want to have harmonious relationships with your colleagues, dont attempt to take all the credit for things that others helped play a role in bringing about. Share the limelight. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Although your plans might be feasible, unless you delegate their implementation to skilled and reliable parties, success could be in question. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Its much smarter to check things out for yourself rather than believe what another says, when you have to know the absolute facts. Dont take any chances. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Teaming up with another for a common cause might hold a special appeal to you. However, if it proves to be taking you nowhere, dont hesitate to split up and go it alone. Aries (March 21-April 19) Its generally a mistake to allow petty politics to become an issue among friends. As a result, you or the person you are endorsing could turn out to be very unpopular. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Your financial indicator could run from high to low and back again. Try to keep a cool head and youll end up on the right side of the ledger.

The ruling by Superior Court Judge Ramona See rejected a motion by Activisions lawyers to dismiss several claims from the case, including fraud, violation of publicity rights and breach of contract. See determined there were genuine disputes about evidence that a jury should consider. No Doubt sued the Santa Monica, Calif.-based video game company in November 2009, claiming the band was never told that players would be able to unlock avatars of the band to perform other artists music. The case cited instances in which players could use singer Gwen Stefani to perform suggestive lyrics from the Rolling Stones hit Honky Tonk Women, or have a virtual version of bassist Tony Kanal sing his bands hit Just a Girl, but with Stefanis voice. The lawsuit claimed the feature turns the band into a virtual karaoke circus act. See rejected one of the bands claims that sought an injunction barring Activision from using band members likenesses to perform other artists work. Activision has claimed the idea of unlocking unadvertised features of a video game has been around since the early days of the industry and the company did nothing wrong. Attorneys expect the case will go to trial later this year.Jury to hear No Doubts claims against game maker C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Todays HOROSCOPE Associated Press This undated image released by CBS shows dog guru Justin Silver, host of the new show Dogs in the City, walking dogs in New York.

As part of the 100th birthday celebration of the Citrus County Historic Courthouse, former students from Inverness Primary School will open a time capsule they assembled in 1987 as part of Renna (Benefield) Jablonskis gifted education class. We were doing a unit on the future, and Hampton Dunn had come to tell us about the past, and the class projected the future, looking forward 25 years, Jablonskis said. For the 75th birthday of the courthouse we put together a time capsule to be opened this year on the 100th birthday. Ashley Wolf Lee, who was in first grade in 1987, said she doesnt remember what they put in the capsule, although she does remember going to the courthouse for the ceremony when the capsule was closed. Ill be as surprised as everyone else to see what I put inside, she said. Lee lives in Orlando. Likewise, Lindy Simmons Davis, now in her mid-30s, doesnt remember what she put in the time capsule back in fourth grade, although A newspaper records history one day at a time. One hundred years ago, the big story in Citrus County was a new courthouse had been constructed and everyone felt it was so grand that it would stand the test of time. It has. The Chronicle was a weekly newspaper in 1912 and there wasnt much real news happening. But the opening of a new courthouse was a very big deal. Citrus County was only 25 years old and it was a rough-andtumble place. But the construction of the courthouse made a statement: We are here to stay. Citrus County has had its ups and downs over the past 125 years. There was even a time in the late 1970s and early 1980s when leaders questioned if the county seat of Inverness was a town in decline.

More than 50 years later, the memory of Elvis Presleys visit to Citrus County and his presence in Citrus Countys historic courthouse while filming the movie Follow That Dream during the summer of 1961 still lives. People still call the historic courthouse asking about Elvis, said Kathy TurnerThompson, Citrus County historical resource officer. A few years ago, an entire family from Hannover, Germany, came to Inverness just to see where the movie was filmed. Local places around the county used in the movie include the Bird Creek bridge on County Road 40 (Follow That Dream Parkway) in Inglis, and also the small bridge on Kings Bay Drive in Crystal River seen in the opening credits. Elvis stayed at the Port Paradise Motel in Crystal River and kept his boat in the nearby marina. And, of course, the upstairs courtroom in the historic courthouse played a featured role as the location where Elvis, as Toby Kwimper, gave an impassioned testimony that is said to have brought tears to onlookers eyes. Turner-Thompson said that when the Citrus County Historical Society was applying for grants for the restoration of the 1912 building, having had the movie made there proved important because the movie had some of the few historic images of what the courtroom originally looked like. After obtaining permission from MGM Home Studios, they took still photographs of the video, which they submitted as photographic documentation. In the movie, the opening scene shows a jalopy crossing a long bridge. Although the bridge, the Courtney Campbell Causeway in Tampa, isnt a part of Citrus County, two of the kids inside the car were local boys, Wendell Daniel and Lloyd Bertine. Bertine, now the Rev. Lloyd Bertine, pastor of Gulf to Lake Church in Crystal River, was 10 years old when he and his friend Wendell were chosen as stand-ins for twin brothers Gavin and Robin Koon, who played Eddy and Teddy Bascombe. In 2010, Bertine told the Chronicle The casting crew came to our Little League practice and lined us up. They picked me and Wendell, I guess because of our height and our hair. Bertine said one day Elvis was at the courthouse just sitting and started singing Its Now or Never and Bertine joined in and sang with him. However, what he really liked was playing football with the crooner. Two years ago, local history buff Wendy Stillwell researched and developed a play, When Elvis Came to Town, about the making of Follow That Dream and its Citrus County connection. In 2011, Marcus Held, a local Elvis tribute artist nicknamed the Swiss Elvis, played Elvis and in the 2012 version, the King was played by Ted Torres, who won 2011 Best Vocals in Las Vegas on the Elvis Stage and was named in the 2011 Worlds Ultimate Elvis Contest Top 5. Inside the historic courthouse, upstairs in the courtroom, a life-size photo cutout of Elvis Presley watches over the room. Fiftyone years after he walked the courthouse steps and 34 years since his death in 1977, his presence is still felt. Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2927. N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterIt was a Thursday evening, Sept. 30, 1937. Twenty-year-old Belle Rowe and 21-year-old Curtis King had driven from Sumter County to Inverness to get married. He delivered telegrams on his bicycle and Belle had seen him around town in Wildwood. They met at a party. The reason we went to Inverness was because it was night and we heard there was a judge in Citrus County who would marry you at night, Mrs. King said. Now 95, the widowed Mrs. King lives in Sumterville. We had double-dated with another couple and went with them when they got married, three months before we got married. The same couple returned to Inverness with the Kings as their witnesses. The courthouse itself was closed, but it was common knowledge that if a young couple knocked on Judge E.C. Mays door after hours, if he was home he would invite them in and marry them. We didnt tell my dad, but we told my mom, Mrs. King said. Afterward, we had dinner out with our friends and then we went back to my husbands mom and dads house. We stayed there three months before we got an apartment in Wildwood. She said the marriage license cost $6. We didnt get married at the courthouse in Inverness, but my grandmother did, Mrs. King said. She got married at 14 she lived at Stage Pond. Although Charles and Ida Brooks are long separated, Mrs. Brooks still recalls 51 years ago when they traveled from Crystal River to the now-historic courthouse in Inverness to get married. We went to high school in Inverness, Booker T. Washington School, she said. They met riding the school bus together. She was 19 when they married on May 8, 1961. We were downstairs in somebodys office, she said. I wore a white dress. It was just he and I and maybe my dad, but no bridesmaids, no best man. Were still married, but weve been separated since 1981. Friday, June 15, 1990, was a hot, sticky day. Joan Workman had come to Citrus County from Ohio to marry John Fitch. They met in Cleveland when she worked in classified ads at the Plain Dealer newspaper and he came in to place an ad to sell his car. His wife, also named Joan, had died. They had lived in Inverness at the end of Turner Camp Road, but came back to Ohio. They had been married seven years before the first Joan died. Fitch returned to Inverness and after eight years of being alone, he asked Joan to marry him. My brother came down from Vegas, Mrs. Fitch, 75, said. I wore a nice dress, but not a wedding gown. Afterwards, we changed our clothes and went to the water park in Ocala. It was hot out that day, Mr. Fitch, 78, recalled. Her brother had this sharp suit on and he wouldnt take it off, but finally he did. They married at the historic courthouse. It was fast and convenient and didnt cost very much, Mrs. Fitch said. They were married by Eleanor W. Wilson, deputy clerk of courts. Mrs. Fitch returned to Ohio to finish out a job before moving back to Inverness to rejoin her new husband and start a new job at the Chronicle in classified ads. Between the two of them, the couple has nine children, 12 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. They will be married 22 years this June.

Editors note: In 1998, former Chronicle columnist Steve Arthur wrote about the history of Citrus becoming a separate county. The following is an excerpt. Newcomers to this county cant be expected to understand the significance of the courthouse to the town of Inverness and to the soul of this county, so to give you some insight, sit back and get whisked back in time to June 2, 1887. It all started on that date, the birth date of this county. That is the day Gov. E.A. Perry signed into law a measure passed by the Legislature to slice Hernando County into three parts to create Citrus and Pasco and Hernando Counties, wrote author and journalist Hampton Dunn in his marvelous book Back Home, a History of Citrus County Florida. The legislation spelled out that the town of Mannfield would be the temporary county seat of Citrus County for two years. It was further stipulated that it could be changed by a vote of the registered voters. Mannfield, about four miles south of Lecanto, sat at the geographical center of the new county. Dont ask me to locate it for you because I can only guess where it was. Anyway, Dunn went on to write: The establishment of the temporary courthouse in September, 1887, was in the Moffat house in Mannfield ... in 1891, the temporary courthouse was moved to the Gaffney house in Mannfield, with a rental of $19 a month. Austin S. Mann, who named Mannfield after himself, wanted the courthouse to stay right where it was. He owned a lot of land in the area and stood to gain. He was an interesting character who was elected state senator for a time. He is described as a populist and a free-thinker with big timber and land interests who had big dreams for his investments in the county. As a senator, he had worked with the railroad people to have the tracks come through his town, but when phosphate was discovered on the east side of the county, the situation changed. Mining interests wanted the tracks to follow the vein of phosphate, which extended down from Holder through Inverness and Floral City and points south. Another big financial interest in the county at the time, the Florida Orange, Canal and Transit Co., which had plans to develop transportation on the Tsala Apopka lakes and the Withlacoochee River out to the Gulf of Mexico, also naturally favored the east side. So there were two factions wanting to place the county seat: the Manns and the anti-Manns. According to Dunn, between 1889 and 1890 many elections were held to establish the county site. Each election failed due to the shortage of the majority votes. Finally, the voters did approve a move to Inverness in an election on May 4, 1891. The vote was 267 for Inverness, 258 for Lecanto, and one vote for Gulf Junction. (Another ghost town which has since been mislaid.) Disputing the election and fearing that the Inverness supporters would attempt to move the courthouse, members of the Mann faction decided to find a judge to slap an injunction on the Inverness faction. So a pro-Mann lawyer set off on horseback to Dade City to catch a circuit judge who was supposed to be there. The unidentified lawyer caught up with the visiting judge at the railroad depot, just boarding the train back to Tampa. Jumping on the train, the lawyer convinced the judge to sign an injunction, but by then they were both chugging off to Tampa. The lawyer rode the train to Tampa and then rode it back north the next day, but by the time he got to Mannfield, it was too late.

Birth of a county N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterAt one time, Citrus County didnt exist. The area we now call home was a bunch of orange trees, wide open spaces where cattle grazed, phosphate mines and sandy, dirt trails. We were part of a larger county, Hernando. In the late 1880s, some people around here were starting to talk about seceding from Hernando, according to Back Home, the historical reference book written by the late Hampton Dunn. Mainly, people were complaining about the difficulty of traveling all the way to the county seat in Brooksville the roads were just sand trails. On June 2, 1887, Citrus County was born after thenGov. E.A. Perry signed a measure passed by the state Legislature, slicing Hernando County into three separate counties Hernando, Pasco and Citrus. It defined Citrus Countys borders from the Withlacoochee River to the Gulf of Mexico, 396,800 acres in all, part of the First Congressional District. Its now the Fifth Congressional District. Back in 1887, Citrus County was represented by Congressman R.H.M. Davidson, of Quincy. Today, we are represented by Rep. Richard Nugent, RBrooksville. The bill creating Citrus as a separate county reportedly sailed through both houses of the Legislature, opposed only by two senators. Gov. Perry signed it four hours after the bill passed, naming the currently nonexistent town of Mannfield as the temporary county seat. The first Board of County Commissioners met at the Mannfield Church in August 1887. At that time, Dunn wrote, Crystal River was a metropolis with 200 people. Homosassa had nine people. Mannfield, located at the geographical center of the county, had roughly 50 families about 250 people. Tompkinsville, now Inverness, had about 30 people. Floral City boasted of more than 300 people and Hernando had about 30. Today, 125 years later, more than 140,000 call Citrus County home. Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2927. BRIAN LaPETER /Chronicle file Historian John Grannan explores the only sign of a town left in Mannfield a cemetery. Citrus was a part of Hernando County until 1887, when the land was divided into three counties Before Inverness became the county seat, the base of government was in the town formerly known as Mannfield. Established: 1884 by citizens of 16 states, mainly from Indiana. Located: Geographical center of the county in the Withlacoochee State Forest miles from the Homosassa River and situated 250 miles southeast of Tallahassee and 17 1/2 miles north of Brooksville, as recorded in Back Home by Hampton Dunn. Named for: State Sen. A.S. Mann, who moved to Citrus County in the 1870s, built a home in Crystal River and planted a large orange grove. Boasted of: Hotel, town square, courthouse, church and schoolhouse, stores and businesses. Population: Between 200 to 250. Known as: The Hill City Among the Hills, as reported in The Citrus County Star (Vol. I No. 2), Jan. 21, 1888. Possible reason it failed as permanent county seat: A proposed railroad route from Dunnellon to the center of the county and through Mannfield was moved eastward toward Floral City after the discovery of phosphate outside Dunnellon in 1889. Lost county seat: May 4, 1891. In an election, Inverness won, but not by much. Mannfield became: Federal government property in the 1930s when the government bought out homesteaders under President Franklin Delano Roosevelts New Deal during the Great Depression. The plan was to reforest the area. Later that land was transferred to the state. Today: The town is gone, its wooden structures decayed and destroyed. All that remains is a small cemetery off Trail 17 in the Withlacoochee State Forest.

Our natural resources are what drew a lot of people here, and my family has enjoyed them ever since they came to Citrus County over 100 years ago. I hope we would protect our lakes and rivers, which are so important to our quality of life here. Joe Brannen, Brannen Banks vice chairman and Inverness native People here always speak to you on the street, and if you wave they most often wave back. I hope in 100 years Citrus County will still have that same small-town nature. Brown and Roger Carol Dumas, Crystal River natives I love the healthy balance in Citrus County of growth and historic preservation and how well our young people and seniors interact so respectfully with each other. I hope these qualities are around for a long, long time! I think thats why people who come to Citrus County stay in Citrus County. Patrick Thomas, Inverness native and voter outreach coordinator for Supervisor of Elections Office I think people will remember what a close community we are. We have a slower lifestyle, a slower pace here, and people still talk to each other. We are a people-friendly community! People are supportive of others less fortunate. Yes, we have business here, but even our businesses support others. Winn Webb, County Commission chairman and Citrus County native Citrus County has always been a different type of rural community, with our rolling hills, our lakes and rivers as well as the gulf thats what attracts people to come here. I hope we never lose that sense of this being a place to relax and enjoy nature. I also hope that 100 years from now people will remember and appreciate how in this 100 years we saved our courthouse and saved a rural way of life. State Sen. Charles Dean, Inverness native I grew up out in the country at Red Level, and it was a wonderful place. Citrus County is a wonderful place, so peaceful. In 100 years, I hope its still wonderful. I also hope in 100 years the rivers will be clear again. Wilma MacRae, longtime Homosassa resident In 100 years I hope Citrus County will be better than ever and that Crystal River will be a thriving business community. Ed Tolle, former county property appraiser, Crystal River City Council member and Crystal River native MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle While Citrus Countys farming industry isnt as strong as it was decades ago, numerous working farms still exist. Cattle, citru s and dairy farms are examples of the farming industry that thrive in the county. MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Citrus County has emerged as one of the most popular destinations for manatee enthusiasts to get an up-close, personal experience with the endangered marine mammals. County blessed to be a people-friendly community Columnist looks back at printed history of county Editors note: The following is a column written by John Grannan, Citrus County Historical Society president. It first appeared in the At Home quarterly newsletter and is being reprinted with Grannans permission. J OHN G RANNAN Special to the ChronicleWe are very fortunate that the Citrus County Historical Society has in its collection so many copies of old Citrus County Chronicles Former Chronicle owner David Arthurs donated many of the newspapers dating back to the 1890s. When you read one of those newspapers, it is like taking a trip back in time and like the old TV show, You Are There. A look at the Chronicles from the month of January in 1912 gives the reader a slice of life as it was 100 years ago. Like most newspapers of that time, the front pages feature a large advertisement along with smaller ads and some news stories from other parts of the country and the world. There was also a serialization of a popular novel Miss Minerva and William Green Hill by Frances Boyd Calhoun. Coincidentally, when I was in fifth grade more than 50 years ago, my teacher at Crystal River Elementary read the whole book aloud to the class. Inside on Pages 2 and 3 were more ads and local news with snippets of information about individuals and businesses, plus articles from other state newspapers. Page 4 was usually legal notices and even more advertisements. The most intriguing ad was for Hair Bought, Sold and Exchanged. We have now on hand a large assortment of Human Hair, switches and would be pleased to have you come in and see our beautiful line. There were two timely references to the building of the new courthouse, which would begin in 1912. Some citizens had been opposed to it but the county commissioners decided to move forward with their plans. The old courthouse is being moved this week to make room for the new structure. The building was not even 20 years old but was a sentimental favorite of some. It was moved to the north of the square by the ReadParker Construction Company for $875. The removal of the trees upset many residents. Monday morning the work of clearing the old courthouse grounds of the beautiful shade trees began, to make room for the new and modern structure. Hundreds of our people regret the removal of the beautiful shade trees, which have so long nestled around our county building, and many a man expressed regret over the destruction. Whatever may be the result, we will always cherish remembrances of the past, and the old courthouse will ever be in our memory. See GRANNAN / Page C6

Who knows? I cant wait, she said. Davis teaches sixth grade language arts at a middle school in Hillsborough County and will be among the curious who will be eager to see whats in the time capsule. Jablonskis said her 1987 students had talked about burying the capsule but opted instead to store it at the courthouses museum, which was just being created about that time. We checked on it a year ago to see if it was still here and made it through all the transitions of moving around during the renovations, she said. On Friday, June 1, some of the former students will be having a mini-reunion at the McLeod House. In addition to opening the 1987 capsule, current students from Inverness Primary and Pleasant Grove Elementary schools are putting together their own time capsule to be opened 25 years from now in 2037. Included in the capsule: a school yearbook, copies of utilities and cell phone bills, videos from the schools morning show, a list of the top 10 things they like to do, photos of local landmarks and hand-drawn self-portraits and prophesies of the careers the students think they will have in 25 years. Take note baseball fans Mikey McSharry, 9, predicts he will be a major league baseball player. Brileyann Eldridge, also 9, thinks she will be a storm chaser. Students will be displaying a living timeline at the 100year birthday event on June 2 at the historic courthouse as they hold posters theyve made illustrating areas of communication, transportation, fashion and technology from 1912 to 2037 25 years into the future. Some things they predict in 2037: cup-holding robots, electronic nail clippers and self-propelled shopping carts. Afterward, the timelines will be donated to the historic museum. CAPSULE Continued from Page C1 courthouse building was almost sacrificed in the name of progress as the state wanted to blast a four-lane U.S. 41 right through the middle of Inverness. Some misguided souls even wanted to move the county seat back to Lecanto. Calmer minds prevailed and the respect for our historic accomplishments grew out of that debate. Today our now-old courthouse is a landmark that produces great pride. A bustling city has once again grown around the downtown and people everywhere applaud the comfortable small-town atmosphere. Citrus County itself has matured over those 125 years. New communities have blossomed and tens of thousands of retirees have flocked to our small towns to enjoy the Florida sunshine. At the heart of Citrus County, our old courthouse remains strong. It is a symbol of our accomplishments and the heart of our heritage. We at the Chronicle are proud to celebrate these important birthdays of our county and the courthouse. Together they represent all that is good in the place we call home. Gerry Mulligan is publisher of the Citrus County Chronicle. WINDOW Continued from Page C1 In conjunction with the celebration of the courthouses 100th anniversary, the Inverness Old Town Association will present Music on the Square, providing entertainment for all from 7 to 11 p.m., featuring the Cool Corporate Cats. All are encouraged to come early and enjoy the local restaurants. Some shops will be staying open for evening shopping. For more information, call Roger Carlson at 352-400-4639.

It was gone. The courthouse has been moved. The Chronicle which was here from the beginning, recorded the details from the memories J.C. Priest, son of then-sheriff Jim Priest: It appeared that the antiManns decided it was safer to act before an injunction could be served, so, while the lawyer slept in Tampa they took horses and wagons and moved everything movable and that had anything to do with the county government and by 8 oclock the next morning Inverness was the official county seat, which it still is. I was five years old and I helped move the courthouse, Priest recalled. He said he helped push the wagons up the sand hill and got a fine free ride down the hill when the mules went at a gallop. There were only two teams to move the whole courthouse. There was a bit of a hitch, though. The county clerk, Captain W.C. Zimmerman, refused to move out of his office because he was against the move 100 percent. The sheriff asked the attorneys for Inverness what to do. The attorneys advised the sheriff to move the man, so thats what they did, by lifting the fellow still sitting in his chair, and placing it securely in a wagon. The sheriff ordered that the captain was not to be allowed out of his chair until they got to Inverness ... And when they got Zimmerman in his room in the courthouse they got him to go to the front door and declare the Citrus County courthouse legally moved to Inverness. That was (more than) a century ago and since then the town of Inverness has grown up around succeeding courthouses. The courthouse is in many ways the cultural and historical heart of this county and, just like our own hearts, it is not located in the center. MANNFIELD Continued from Page C4 The trees would be replaced by new ones once the new building was completed, and many years later people would also lament their passing when they were removed for either street widening or the restoration of the old courthouse. With 1912 being an election year, politics was on the mind of the editor, George Butler, who was sounding the alarm about the threat of a republican takeover. Not since the administration of George Drew, when Radicalism and carpetbaggism was squelched, have the Republicans put in such a bold front as this year. The only way to do is to sit down on every last mothers son of them. No republican holding office in the South is a friend to the South, and it becomes necessary to educate our people to this line of belief. Personally, we have some friends in the Republican Party, but politically, damn em. Several comments were made about local republicans holding federal offices including the Inverness postmaster, who was evidently appointed by President Taft. After the Florida Supreme Court ruled in 1911 that women could hold public office, even though they couldnt vote, the editor encouraged male voters to support women in holding elected offices in the county and city. He didnt mention them being in the Legislature or Congress, however. He wrote that during the next decade, we shall expect to see women occupying many of those important offices, nor shall we expect to see the public service suffer the least injury by this extremely radical change. Indeed in many instances we shall expect to see it improve immensely. The Ocala Banner was the source of this interesting snippet: Along with Marion, the counties of Alachua, Citrus, Gadsden, Hernando, Jefferson, Leon, Madison, Nassau and Putnam, have a larger negro than white population. Before the late unpleasantness, planters with slaves settled or were supposed to settle in counties where the lands were supposed to be the richest. It was surprising to see Citrus included in this list which was mostly the counties in North Florida known as the Black Belt because of their large plantations. The reason for Citrus having such a high black population was due to the extensive phosphate mining taking place in the county at that time, with the majority of the workers being black men. Another interesting aspect was the reference to the late unpleasantness, referring of course to the Civil War. I had heard the phrase recent unpleasantness being used in a humorous manner, but in 1912, the war was still a bitter memory for some and treated as a serious matter. There was also a notice about a reunion of Confederate veterans. The beginning of the Rock Crusher mine is also documented with a reference to the spur line from the existing line to Homosassa. A railroad is being built from the navigable waters of Crystal River, 4 1/2 miles southeast to Lees Mount, a huge mound of solid rock suitable for concrete or jetty work construction on the entire west coast. The mound or ledge has long been one of the places of interest in that section. It is the highest point in the county and from its summit with a pair of glasses, vessels can be seen out in the Gulf beyond the outer bars. The supply of rock is sufficient for years. One hundred men are at work on the railroad and 50 more are wanted. The editor of the paper realized the importance of visitors to the county, probably hoping that some of them would become permanent residents. It is next to impossible for us to get the names of visitors to Inverness, especially during the winter season, and we urgently urge our readers to send or give us the names of such visitors. The Chronicle will not knowingly slight anyone. I wonder even if they were Republicans. As one can see from this look at the past, there have been many changes in our culture and societal norms. In some ways the times have certainly changed but in others, it seems to me that we are not that different from the Citrus County residents of 100 years ago. GRANNAN Continued from Page C5 Map courtesy FCIT Citrus was once part of Hernando County. The land was broken into three counties in 1887, which also included Pasco.

I]Z\025B^c^\025EV\\000Z\234 dd`\025d[\025HiViZh NEW! This summer, people will get the chance to see a rare event. On June 5 and 6, we will be able to see the planet Venus sail between the Earth and the sun. This crossing is called the transit of Venus. The Mini Page talked with experts from NASA to learn more about this exciting event. Warning! Even though we will be able to see Venus moving across the sun, we will need to wear special eclipse glasses to do so. Staring at the sun without protective glasses can blind us. Sunglasses do not offer enough protection. In the early 1990s, the Magellan spacecraft used radar to take pictures of Venus surface. Before, Venus heavy cloud cover had prevented us from seeing the planet itself. Between the Earth and the SunVenus Passes By Planet crossing In astronomy, a transit is when a body in space passes between two other bodies. From Earth, we can see only two planets, Mercury and Venus, cross between us and the sun. From Earth, we see 13 to 14 transits of Mercury every century. Because it is a much smaller planet than Venus, it is harder to see these transits. Transits of Venus are much more rare. We are able to see only two every 100 to 121 years. Transits of Venus always come in pairs. There are eight years between each of these paired transits. The last transit of Venus was in 2004. There were none at all in the 20th century. The last transits were in the 1800s. After this June, more than a century will pass before the next pair of Venus transits. Chance of a lifetime When the last transit of Venus occurred in 2004, it was the first time anyone alive had ever seen one. After the transit this June, few people now alive will ever see another one. The next pair of transits of Venus will be in 2117 and 2125. photo courtesy NASA/LMSALOn June 8, 2004, NASAs TRACE telescope took this rare shot of Venus crossing in front of the sun. This picture gives us a good idea of the size of the sun compared to Venus, or to the Earth. Earth and Venus are roughly the same size. This picture was shot with a special ultraviolet filter. photo by Brocken InagloryAlthough Venus is actually a planet, it looks like the brightest star in the night sky. Sometimes we can see Venus around sunset, and we call it the evening star. At other times, we see it just before sunrise. Then we call it the morning star. photo courtesy Magellan Project, JPL, NASA Words that remind us of the transit of Venus are hidden in the block below. Some words are hidden backward or diagonally.

At the last minute, the clouds opened, and they became the first people to watch a transit of Venus in a scientific manner.Excitement builds Astronomers soon realized that by timing when the transit began and ended from different places on Earth, they could use those findings, and math, to figure out the size of the solar system. By the 1700s, when the next transits were due, astronomers all over the world were filled with excitement. Major scientific expeditions were launched to measure the transit. Keeping hope alive Astronomers waited 100 years for the next transits of Venus. By 1882, the transit of Venus was the top headline in papers all over the world. Once more, scientists braved dangers and hardships to view the transits. This time, they were able to figure out that the Earth was about \031\023\000MILLION\000MILES\000FROM\000THE\000SUN\016\000 This was nearly as exciting a discovery as the moon landing was less than a century later.

Astronomers journeyed to the far corners of the Earth to observe the transits. These astronomers set off to mountaintops and distant islands. They had no telegraphs or phones. They didnt even have accurate clocks to record the transit times. Although they did not have enough technology in the 1700s to take accurate measurements, they did learn a lot. A Russian astronomer saw a kind of glow around Venus and realized it might have an atmosphere. People got excited. They thought Venus might be a jungle planet inhabited by alien beings. art by J. W.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE W EDNESDAY, M AY 30, 2012 C9 P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. After North had opened one spade and South had responded two hearts, North rebid two spades. This suggested a sixth spade, but if his hand was unsuitable for two no-trump or three of a minor, he would have rebid two spades with a good five-card suit. Now South was in a quandary. He might have rebid three clubs (over which North would probably have chosen three notrump) or raised to four spades. But he took control by jumping to three notrump, hoping to run the spade suit. Four spades would probably have made without much difficulty, even if declarer had lost a trump trick. Say East leads the heart five. North wins, plays a spade to the king and a spade to his jack. East wins and leads his second heart: eight, 10, ruff. North draws the missing trump and plays a club to dummys king. When that wins, he cashes the heart king, ruffs out Wests heart queen, leads a diamond to the ace, and takes two discards on the high hearts to collect five spades, three hearts, one diamond and one club. Three no-trump was much tougher. I might have led the diamond two from that West hand, but he chose the heart six, the most effective start. If South had played a spade to his king, followed by a spade to the jack, he would have had to read the position to get home. But declarer unerringly won the second spade with dummys ace to drop the queen! Now he had an easy overtrick. I explained the percentages, but it was hard to argue with success.

When she was merely 4 months old, my son-in-law would toss her up in the air and then catch her. Her head was completely unsupported. When she was 5 months old and the temperature outside was in the 40s and rainy, he refused to put a coat on her. When she was 6 months old, he put her on his shoulders and bounced her around the grocery instead of securing her in the car seat. When she was 11 months old, he admitted that he had tossed her on their bed so she would bounce. Last Sunday, I was gently pushing her in a swing when he said, Youre not swinging her high enough, and proceeded to push her aggressively and to a point where I felt it was unsafe for a child her age. My daughter has told me that he does things that make her heart stop. I believe he enjoys the attention and likes to upset my daughter. I consider him to be somewhat unbalanced. Would this be considered child endangerment? I had composed a letter to her pediatrician, but friends and family urged me not to send it for fear that child protective services will be called. Yet, if I know these things and do nothing, Im as guilty as he is. I dont want to lose my granddaughter or my daughter. Am I overreacting? Co n c erne d G ran dm a D ear G ran dm a : Your son-in-laws behavior is questionable, but we dont believe its enough to call CPS. The problem is, he doesnt seem to understand the boundaries of acceptable risk. First talk to your daughter. She should make it clear to her husband that he must be more careful. Please tell her also to discuss this with her pediatrician, and you should not hesitate to let the doctor know about your concerns. Perhaps a professional can talk some sense into her husband before he unintentionally causes irreparable harm. D ear Annie : My husband recently passed away. My sisters and one of my closest friends never particularly liked him, so now they are all suddenly my best friends. The biggest problem is my friend Fran, who thinks she knows everything about my life and wont allow me to make any decisions of my own. Trying to assert myself around her is mentally exhausting. She wants to know about my budget, what Im cooking for dinner, what Im doing for the weekend. Every weekend. I was a social bug until I lost my husband. Now, not so much. I attend church, go to work and go home. I have two teenagers who miss their father terribly. I think Im still grieving and do not want anyones help if it has to be so suffocating. Does that make sense at all? St re ss in g in K an s a s D ear K an s a s : Your response to this smothering attention is perfectly natural. You are indeed still grieving, and Frans oppressive concern is provoking some resentment, not least because she did not get along with your husband. Tell Fran you need her to back off for a while, and then please consider some grief counseling. Your doctor or the local hospital can refer you. D ear Annie : I am sure D.B. M.D, Loma Linda, Calif. meant well to inform us how to better entice our men and put out more. I work in a salon, and we talk about sex in detail. The women with loving husbands who are shown respect are happy to give their men plenty of sexual activity. The men who arent getting the sex life they want are probably not as kind, loving, respectful or attentive to their women. Please help men understand that women like sex to start in the kitchen or living room, an hour before it actually happens in the bedroom. And if it does, sex will be enjoyed by both partners for longer than 12 minutes. W.B.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Meeting Notices 761-0530 WCRN PUBLIC NOTICE IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER Recent Tests Indicated Coliform Bacteria in the Citrus Springs and Pine Ridge Water System Recent water test results indicated that the Citrus Springs/Pine Ridge water system violated a drinking water standard. Although this incident was not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what was done to correct the situation. The Citrus County Utilities Division routinely monitors County owned and operated drinking water systems for contaminants, including the Citrus Springs/Pine Ridge system. In accordance with our permit requirements, fifteen routine distribution samples were taken for the month of April, 2012 to test for the presence of coliform bacteria. Two out of the fifteenroutine samples showed the presence of total coliform bacteria. The standard is that no more than one sample per month or 5 percent of the total samples may fail. What should I do? You Do Not Need To Do Anything You do not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions. However, if you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor. If you have a severely compromised immune system, have an infant, are pregnant, or are elderly, you may be at increased risk and should seek advice from your health care providers about drinking this water. General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by microbes are available from EPAs Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. What does this mean? This is not an emergency. If it had been you would have been notified within 24 hours. Total coliform bacteria are generally not harmful themselves. *Coliforms are bacteria which are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other, potentially-harmful, bacteria may be present. Coliforms were found in more samples than allowed and this was a warning of potential problems.* Usually, coliforms are a sign that there could be a problem with the systems treatment or distribution system (pipes). Whenever we detect coliform bacteria in any sample, we do follow-up testing to see if other bacteria of greater concern, such as fecal coliform or E. coli, are present. We did not find any of these bacteria in our subsequent testing What is being done? As required by the Environmental Protection Agencies (EPAs) Ground Water Rule, repeat samples were collected at the detected sites, plus one sample upstream and one sample downstream of the detected site. These samples were collected on April 17th, 2012. There were no traces of total coliform bacteria in any of the repeated samples. Since then, we have performed routine sampling for the month of May on all seven drinking water wells plus fifteen samples throughout the distribution system. Coliform bacteria were not detected in any of the samples. The Citrus County Department of Water Resources has conducted a thorough investigation to determine the source of the contamination and believe that no actual problem existed within the water distribution system. Our investigation indicates that the test samples were either contaminated during the process of being transported to the laboratory, or during the analysis of the actual sample within the laboratory. Thus, there was never any real threat to your drinking water For more information, please contact Gary Loggins, Citrus County Utilities Operations Manager, Department of Water Resources at 352-527-7650 or write to Citrus County Utilities at 1300 S Lecanto Highway, Lecanto FL, 34461.

Unfortunately, people got more than they bargained for. Beryl arrived onshore Monday morning with sustained winds of 70 mph, bearing down on Jacksonville. Although not hit directly by the storm, Citrus County did receive the tropical storms outlying bands. The thunderstorms continued throughout the night and into Tuesday, putting the brakes on many Memorial Day celebrations. The heavy rains created localized flooding, and tornado warnings were issued from 4:20 a.m. to 5 a.m. for eastern Citrus County. Around 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, the National Weather Service issued a CodeRED warning for Crystal River as remnants of Beryl landed on the western coast of the county. Tree limbs littered lawns and the roadways, and torrential rains slowed motorists and kept many people indoors. A waterspout is visible in Yankeetown early Tuesday. Tornado warnings were issued throughout the county Tuesday.JOE ECKSTEIN /Special to the Chronicle See BERYL/ Page A4 Beryl bears down, drenching county CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterCounty government has lost a go-to guy, the person who either knew answers or could find out.

The park, like all of Citrus County, received many inches of much-needed rain from the tropical weather system passing through Florida. Associated PressSAVANNAH, Ga. The former tropical storm Beryl was expected to bring up to 10 inches of rain to parts of the southeast coast before it heads out to sea again, where it could regain some strength. Forecasters said Beryl, downgraded to a tropical depression after losing wind strength Monday, could dump up to 4 inches of rain in coastal South Carolina, where a flash flood warning was in place. Southeast Georgia and northern Florida could get as much as 10 inches. Meteorologist Brett Cimbora of the National Weather Service in Charleston, S.C., said the risk of flash floods was greater because much of the area has been dry and sudden rain could run off the hard soil instead of soaking into the ground. Meanwhile, with the official start of hurricane seasoncoming Friday, U.S. officials are reviewing their disaster plans especially since a tropical storm already swept ashore this week. While Beryl, which hit as a tropical storm, left little damage after making landfall with 70 mph winds early Monday at Jacksonville, Fla., it gave the city the chance to put its natural disaster plans to the test. The city will assess the damage before deciding how much federal and state aid to seek, Mayor Alvin Brown said. By Tuesday morning, Beryl had maximum sustained winds of 30 mph. It was centered about 115 miles westsouthwest of Savannah and was moving northeast near 5 mph. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said the depressions center was expected to near the South Carolina coast by Wednesday morning, then veer back over the Atlantic where it could regain tropical storm strength.

From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, MAY 30, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Outages a matter of perception A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterIn response to queries by some who perhaps consider what industry officials call hiccups in power supply as outages theChroniclecalled area power companies for answers. In the past couple of weeks, the newspaper has fielded many inquiries about sudden, albeit short, interruptions to their electric service. But two of the three power companies that service the area have not seen any abnormal interruptions in services. One company spokesman said what is often reported as an outage is usually the system resetting itself briefly thus not considered an outage in the industry. An outage, said Sumter Electric Cooperative (SECO) spokesman Barry Bowman, is when electric service is interrupted, such as during major storms like Tropical Storm Beryl, for an extended period of time. Sometimes people think a slight interruption in service is an outage, but that usually means the system is doing what it is supposed to do. We dont consider those slight interruptions as outages. It is the system resetting itself and sometimes will do that two or three times before continuing to function regularly, Bowman said. Progress Energy said it is also unaware of any extensive interruptions to electric service in Citrus County. While there may be isolated incidences of outages at some addresses or even streets due to anything from car accidents or branches on lines, Progress Energy spokeswoman Suzanne Grant said, no significant outages have been indicated by her company. SECO, Progress Energy and Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative are the main conduits for electricity in Citrus County. Calls to Withlacoochee Electric were not returned by press time.Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com. DAVE SIGLER/ChronicleCarol and Larry Dole are visiting the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park during their vacation from New Hampshire. The couple is traveling the state of Florida for 10 days in their RV in search of birding adventures. Time for getaways SHEMIRWILES Staff WriterHOMOSASSA Put in the time off from work and make plans to get away because vacation season is about to be in full swing. Memorial Day weekend traditionally kicks off the summer travel time of the year. According to a recent AAA survey, two in three Florida residents (65 percent) plan to take a summer vacation this year an 8 percent increase from last summer. At the very top (36 percent), residents said a beach getaway is how they will spend their vacation time, followed by a city destination (33 percent), theme parks/attractions (28 percent), family reunion (22 percent) and a cruise (19 percent). However, Florida remains a popular place for people from other corners of the world to visit. And while many may think destinations like Disney World and Miami Beach attract all the tourists, the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park was teeming with a number of out-of-town sightseers enjoying the natural Florida ambiance. Joelle Schilling and her boyfriend, Reto Gerber, didnt appear to be from another country until their distinct accents gave them away. We came all the way from Switzerland, Schilling said. She said she has made trips to Florida her entire life with her parents, but it was the first time her boyfriend was visiting the United States. They planned to be in the States for about three weeks. In Switzerland, Gerber said people only know of the glitz and glamour of America. Show business and Hollywood, he added with a grin. But he said he and his girlfriend wanted to see something different and more nature-based. We wanted to do something entertaining, and we thought it would be cool to see the nature in Florida, Gerber said before being startled by an unexpected chortle from Lucifer, the parks notable hippo. With their eyes to the sky, Carol Dole and her husband, Larry, enjoyed a bit of bird watching. The New Hampshire couple said they were spending 10 days in Florida after picking up their Laredo Fifth Wheel RV in Orlando. For the last three years, Carol said she and her husband have been avid birdwatchers and after doing some research on places to view birds, they stumbled upon the wildlife park as a perfect destination. The Doles said it was their first trip to Florida, and so far, it was great. Brian Lentine wasnt visiting from out of town, but he only recently became a Citrus County resident two years ago. At least twice a week the Terra Vista resident comes to the park to photograph the animals. And while he might not be a tourist, when family from Boston come to visit, he said they enjoy a bit of the smalltown Florida atmosphere. Taking in the surroundings and enjoying a bite to eat on their boat, Allen and Renee Atkinson said they didnt come from too far away. We live in Nobleton, Renee said. Nevertheless, her mother Carol Antril made the trip up from Tampa and was enjoying the old blue hole for the first time. I like it, she said. While some believe Floridians probably spend their vacation time in Florida, the Atkinsons said when they travel, they like to get away from the hot and humid summer weather and see something Florida doesnt have. We head North, Allen said. We go to the mountains. Truck crashes into convenience store SANDRAFREDERICK Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER What started as a trip to the convenience store for a package of cigarettes ended in shattered glass and a dented Ford pickup truck. Dale Alan Nichols drove his 2000 truck into the parking lot of the Super Discount store at 1943 N.W. U.S. 19 around 2:30 p.m. Monday when he jumped the curb and crashed through the front plate glass window, a police report stated. I was coasting to the stop sign and then the brakes didnt work, Nichols said Tuesday. Nichols told the Citrus County Sheriffs Office his brakes failed, causing the accident. Upon inspection, the deputy said in the report the brake pedal went to the floor and the outside of the master cylinder appeared to be covered with brake fluid. The deputy also noted the master cylinder cap was torn. There were no injuries due to the accident. However, the store is boarded up with plywood but still open for business. I hooked the door and bent the door, Nichols said. It is drivable but not until I get the brakes fixed.Chronicle managing editor Sandra Frederick can be reached at 352-564-2930 or sfrederick@chronicle online.com. Store manager Mary Weinreich talks with customer Jerry Corbin on Tuesday in front of the Super Discount convenience store north of downtown Crystal River on U.S. 19.

When asked about the rain, Capt. Joe Eckstein, director of the Citrus County Emergency Operations Center said, I loved it. We needed the rain. We got a good amount of rain, and much-needed rain. He was also glad there was no major damage. Another tornado warning was issued for northern Citrus around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday after a Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputy reported seeing a tornado in the area. In Yankeetown, a waterspout was spotted and it touched down at the Withaloocchee Gulf Preserve around the same time. AccuWeather reported that since Sunday, Citrus County recorded between 6 and 8 inches of rain, with Inverness and surrounding areas receiving the most. Damage reports indicated major flooding around Floral City and Inverness. The Citrus County Road Maintenance Division also reported county road closures caused by the heavy rains. Closures included a partial road closure on West Oak Park Boulevard between Corkwood Boulevard and South Lecanto Highway, with the flooded section two miles west of South Lecanto Highway. The county anticipates the road will be open sometime Wednesday morning. Additionally, crews are still clearing roads of tree debris, repairing eroded areas and ensuring drainage systems are functioning. A sidewalk construction project on State Road 44 East also has to be redone as a result of being washed away by the rains. Weather reports indicate thunderstorms will continue as Beryl moves up the coast of Georgia and into the Atlantic. While Beryl brought large amounts of precipitation, the rainfall did little to ease the countys longstanding drought. The storm helped douse brush fires, but easing drought conditions would require a sustained period of rain, said Don Ruths, spokesman for the Florida Forest Service. This storm happened so fast, so much. When that happens, it causes the rain to wash away and does not necessarily soak the ground. Hopefully, we will have more rain as the summer rainy season begins, Ruths said.Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe contributed to this report. and present. Constructed in 1912 by the Read-Parker Construction Company at a cost of $55,885 on a square lot at a 45-degree angle, the courthouse is centered by roads outlining a diamond shape. Kathy Turner Thompson, Citrus County historical resource officer, said that when seen from above, the courthouse is known as the diamond in the rough. Surrounding buildings are overshadowed by J. R. MacEachron and W. R. Biggers design, directing peoples attention to the gleaming yellow-brick walls, towering columns and iconic clock tower. The structure is an amalgamation of styles from both American and European architectural schools, such as Mission, Prairie School, Neoclassical and Italian Renaissance. This courthouse is not only pleasing to the eye. Everything about it has quirky and interesting facts that only add to its significance. Even the four doors to the courthouse point outward to serve as compass points. Once serving as a place of justice, the courthouse is now the headquarters of the Citrus County Historical Society and the site of the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum. Walking inside, one is immediately struck by images of archaic faces, artifacts and decorations. On the ground, in the center of the courthouse, the tiled Seal of Florida reflects lights that have been electrified since 1914. Supervised by the Citrus County Historical Society, the courthouses restoration began in the early 1990s. And although the courthouse is still in the process of being restored, one cannot ignore the amount of time the courthouse has endured. Each step on the recently uncovered terrazzo floor echoes with the creaks and moans of a building waiting to tell its story. Touching the marble wainscoting, one can almost feel the memories ingrained inside its casing. Looking out the refinished and re-hinged windows, one can imagine a town with general store owners waiting to be supplied by local farmers. Before 1978, the firstfloor rooms held the offices of the Citrus County sheriff, superintendent of schools, property appraiser and tax collector. Now these offices have been transformed into galleries displaying local and prehistoric history, educating local schoolchildren about the history of their county. Even the modern bathrooms still have fireplaces. The exhibits of the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum house artifacts and treasures that have been a part of Citrus County and the courthouses heritage. Pictures and photographs of townsfolk and judges from long ago help bridge the gap between now and then. One of the four original clock faces is encased in glass, bearing the signatures of female aircraft spotters during World War II. Modern staircases that replaced spiral staircases lead up to the second-floor courtroom, the setting of the courthouses most significant events. When first witnessing the courtroom, one is immediately struck by the sheer size of it compared to modern courtrooms. One could be reminded of the climatic trial scene from the 1962 movie version of Harper Lees To Kill A Mockingbird. Coincidentally, the courtroom was a set in a wellknown movie. Elvis Presley filmed part of his movie Follow That Dream in the courtroom when he came to Citrus County in 1961, with local townspeople playing extras. In memory of Elvis film, the Citrus County Historical Society re-enacts a musical production of the summer When Elvis Came to Town to raise money for the courthouse. April 2012 was the last production date commemorating the 50th anniversary of Elvis movie premiere in 1962. A giant balcony overlooks the courtrooms grand stage, supported by two rooms with curved windows, one of the more expensive items in the courthouses restoration. From the balcony, steep and shaky stairs lead up to the attic and inside the clock tower. Access must be authorized by museum employees, and is not part of the regular tour. People with claustrophobia and vertigo are not recommended to go up, but all fears seem to disappear when beholding the towers interior. The 1,500-pound bell constructed in Boston, New York and Chicago gleams in the natural light coming through the newly furnished windows. The windows were destroyed during the string of hurricanes that hit Florida in 2004. Thompson said that this damage only proves that the courthouse has stood the test of time. As the headquarters for the Citrus County Historical Society, the vault, which originally belonged to the clerk of courts, is now the archive for records dating to the late 1800s. Everything from aerial photographs and poll tax documents to property appraisals and old Chronicleeditions are preserved with a dehumidifier and climate-control device. Schoolchildren learn to distinguish between primary and secondary documents, while also learning firsthand about the countys history. Its the goal of both the Citrus County Historical Society and the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum to educate children with the actual documents and artifacts. History, Thompson said, doesnt start in a dusty old book, but it starts with the world around you. The past was just as alive as the present is today, and just like the courthouse and the collections within, the history is very much alive.

much bigger goal to be accomplished and thats winning the presidency, said Rich Beeson, Romneys political director. So while you can take a certain amount of satisfaction and pride for (Romney) and what hes accomplished, hes very resolved to say, Our work isnt done. Romney must now fire up conservatives who still doubt him while persuading swing voters that he can do a better job fixing the nations struggling economy than Obama. In Obama, he will face a well-funded candidate with a proven campaign team in an election that will be heavily influenced by the economy. Its these economic indicators that will more or less trump any good or bad that Romney potentially got out of primary season, said Josh Putnam, an assistant political science professor at Davidson College who writes the political blog Frontloading HQ. Romney opened his day in Colorados coal country, where he spoke directly to small-town America: Im not going to forget Craig, Colorado. Im not going to forget communities like this across the country that are hurting right now under this president, he said. Local officials report the areas economy is improving, but Romney said the recovery is too slow. Republicans wont officially nominate Romney until late August at the GOP national convention in Tampa, Fla. Romney, 65, is clinching the presidential nomination later in the calendar than any recent Republican candidate but not quite as late as Obama in 2008. Obama clinched the Democratic nomination on June 3, 2008, at the end of an epic primary battle with Hillary Rodham Clinton. Four years ago, John McCain reached the threshold on March 4, after Romney had dropped out of the race about a month earlier. He reported directly to five county administrators Gary Kuhl, Richard Wesch, June Fisher, Anthony Schembri and Brad Thorpe and served under a variety of county commissioners from various backgrounds. Yet, those commissioners say Mr. Maidhofs advice was sound, without taint of opinion. Mr. Maidhofs friends and associates were unified in their thoughts Tuesday that Citrus County has lost an icon, a favorite son. It seemed everyone counted on Gary Maidhof for something. Heres what these people were saying:Attorney Clark Stillwell, who often represents the interests of developers before the county commission: He had this tremendous institutional knowledge. You just dont find that. With Gary, it would be, In 1994, this ordinance did this. He had it in his memory and he made life simpler. Besides, he was just a good person. He was very honest and very straightforward.Chuck Dixon, planning and growth director for Citrus County School District who worked with Mr. Maidhof for 15 years: There are only three or four people in my life who have been really important in helping me with my career and Gary was right at the top of that list. To me, he was Citrus County. He exemplified everything that this county is about. What we are today a lot of it is because of Gary.Lace Blue-McLean, worked with Mr. Maidhof on Citrus 2020, Save Our Waters Week and other environmental events. He had such a level head about him. Problems would come up, wed go to Gary and he would find solutions. He never lost his cool. He always faced challenges with a cool demeanor.Gary Kuhl, former county administrator who promoted Mr. Maidhof to development services director: He was one of the most professional and dedicated people Ive ever worked with. Clearly had a strong ethic and certainly stood up for what he thought was the right thing to do. Its a huge loss for the county. Just a huge loss of a really good person.Theodora Rusnak, president of the Citrus County Council: He was somebody who was approachable by citizens. Where citizens might have felt put off or hesitant to approach their elected officials, they always knew they could go to Gary. He would make the time and tell it like it is. He was always an entry point.Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni: He got out there and worked. He was very helpful in the lakes cleanup and Cooter Pond Park. He got the Scouts involved to lay out the first Nature Walk. Hes got his fingerprints on a number of things throughout the county.Former Commissioner Gary Bartell: Gary was extremely beneficial to the whole board. He had the knowledge, the institutional knowledge, of all the county workings and doings.Crystal River City Manager Andy Houston: He worked with our tree board to get about 170 trees donated from the county nursery for Arbor Day. He did so many things people dont even know about.Josh Wooten, chamber of commerce chief executive officer and a former county commissioner: I know people who disagreed with him on some issues who are devastated. He was a true community treasure. A walking encyclopedia. He could quote any code or regulation from memory. He just wanted to help everybody. And there was this practical joker side. He had a real zest for life.Chris Lloyd, Lecanto resident and observer of county government: I knew Gary Maidhof for at least 15 years and we were good friends, although I could violently disagree with him on planning decisions. But we were friends. Ive been to his home and played with his dogs.Former Commissioner Vicki Phillips: I was thinking of all the people who are going to miss him. He was so smart and so active in the community. He was always going somewhere to speak to a group. He was always willing to help. He was just a good fellow all the way around and hes going to be missed.Pattie Amon, animal services operations manager, who was Mr. Maidhofs executive assistant for 12 years: I enjoyed every day I went to work. I laughed every day I worked for Gary. He was always in the hijinks. Its like he found the humor in everything. He just had a way of bringing lightness to every situation. I never met a man like him in my entire life and I dont think Ill ever again. He was my hero.Staff Writer Chris Van Ormer contributed to this report.

Its a tragic loss for this county and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Commissioner Dennis Damato said he has known Mr. Maidhof for more than 30 years, since Mr. Maidhof began work in Citrus County in public health. Hes irreplaceable on so many fronts with the community and issues important to county government, Damato said. Its a shock. The loss will be so great not only to our county but to those who are environmentally sensitive throughout our nation, Commissioner Rebecca Bays said. His knowledge is not replaceable. If there was anybody who ever had a deep passion and understanding for the issues, it was Gary Maidhof. Mr. Maidhof, 54, was born in New York in 1958. His father was a policeman. He married Charlotte, his wife, in 1981. They had two sons, with whom Mr. Maidhof was active in Scouting. A 1979 University of Florida graduate in zoology, Mr. Maidhof went to work at the Citrus County Public Health Department in the position of Sanitarian I in February 1981. He previously worked as a biological technician for the U.S. Department of Agricultures Forestry Research in Lehigh Acres, conducting a growth study on melaleuca and eucalyptus trees, hoping it would lead to a permanent job. But it didnt, and Mr. Maidhof faced unemployment until he found work in Citrus County. For nine and a half years, Mr. Maidhof oversaw compliance in water and wastewater systems with the states Department of Environmental Health unit in Citrus County before joining county government in July 1990, carrying such job titles as environmental planner, environmental specialist and senior planner. At the beginning of 1998, Mr. Maidhof took on the role of interim director of Development Services at a time when builders and contractors complained about difficulties working through the permit process. Mr. Maidhof served so well he gained recognition. Gary Kuhl, county administrator in 1998, wrote his reasons for awarding Mr. Maidhof some merit pay and filed them in his personnel file. Mr. Maidhof has performed professionally and with enthusiasm to greatly improve the overall performance of the Department of Development Services, Kuhl wrote. He has served during difficult times of reorganization and change always with a positive attitude. He is very willing to work with the public on his own time. When helping the public on his own time, Mr. Maidhof did not always stick to planning issues. He had many environmental interests, as shown in a letter in his personnel file: The second-grade teachers and students at Hernando Elementary School would like to thank you for visiting our classes with your snake collection. Your visit provided great enrichment to our reptile unit. The children were thrilled by your snake collection. By March 1999, Mr. Maidhof was appointed director of Development Services, in which position he was respected for his ability to motivate and provide a level of fairness in his management style, according to his performance reviews. Also in 1998, Mr. Maidhof was recognized as theChronicleCitizen of the Year for his leadership and dedication to the community. Under a reorganization plan to make county government more efficient, Mr. Maidhof stepped into his last role as operations and projects officer at the beginning of 2010. Mr. Maidhofs task was to streamline operations between county departments and act as a general liaison for county residents. He worked on strategic planning of county programs and operations. Thorpe recognized Mr. Maidhofs sense of duty in Development Services at the county commissions Oct. 12, 2010, meeting, acknowledging how he facilitated the Wal-Mart construction in Homosassa: Mr. Creighton and Mr. Huntley were so positively affected by your quality customer service, they drove from Pinellas County to express their appreciation to the board.

The Associated Press delegate count shows that Romney surpassed the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination during Tuesdays primary. Early returns show Romney posting a big win in Texas. Its a triumph of endurance for a candidate who came up short four years ago and had to fight hard this year as voters flirted with a carousel of GOP rivals. Romney reached the nomination milestone with a steady message of concern about the U.S. economy, a campaign organization that dwarfed those of his GOP opponents, and a fundraising operation second only to that of his Democratic opponent in the general election, President Barack Obama.

Associated PressHOMESTEAD, Fla. The havoc wreaked by Hurricane Andrew here two decades ago still serves as a warning about the devastation even a slow tropical storm season can bring. Homestead was ground zero when Andrew plowed ashore in late August 1992, surprising South Florida residents who hadnt experienced a major hurricane landfall in a quarter-century and forecasters who hadnt anticipated the storms rapid intensification to Category 5 strength. The city has not only grown back from the splinters Andrew left behind, it has doubled in size into a demographically different community than the one that suffered the storms impact. Even with an influx of new residents who never experienced the Andrew cleanup and recovery, city officials say the agricultural community southwest of Miami is better prepared for future hurricanes. Homestead isnt the postAndrew city anymore, says Mayor Steven Bateman. I dont want that title. I think weve outgrown that five years ago, Bateman says. Weve doubled in size, we are surviving the downturn in the economy, our second big hotel is getting ready to open, and a trolley runs six days a week, Bateman continues boasting. Were moving forward. According to U.S. Census figures, more than 26,800 people called Homestead home in 1990. Though roughly 9,000 people fled the city in Andrews aftermath, by 2010 it was clear that the Andrew recovery phase was long over. More than 60,500 people were tallied in the city in 2010, and 62.9 percent identified themselves as Hispanic a dramatic increase from the 35.2 percent who identified as Hispanic in the years just before Andrew struck. The percentage of people working in farming dropped as the population grew, and by 2010 the largest percentage of the employed labor force worked in the education and health care fields. When Andrew made landfall early in the morning on Aug. 24, 1992, the storm destroyed more than 80 percent of Homesteads houses, including all but a handful of the citys mobile homes. Homestead Air Force Base, then the communitys economic and civic core, was wiped out. Photographs from Andrews aftermath show wooden boards driven through the trunks of palm trees, ambulances flipped upside down in piles and homes missing whole roofs and walls. Dozens in Florida died, up to a quarter-million people were left homeless and with $30 billion in damages, Andrew was the most expensive natural disaster in U.S. history until Hurricane Katrina in 2005. We had a party that night, as was typical prior to Andrew, says Steve Garrison, who in 1992 had recently retired as the police chief of a neighboring municipality to concentrate on his plant nursery in Homestead. People would put masking tape on their windows or plywood and felt like they were fairly well protected. That turned out to be nothing but a joke. After his party guests had gone home, Garrison and his family were awoken by the sound of the roof peeling off their house. The family huddled in a closet as Garrison held a mattress against the slatted doors. I just felt like such a jerk for having exposed my wife and children to the devastation of the hurricane, Garrison recalled while having lunch on Homesteads revived Krome Avenue. Now he knows better, he says. The RV and I are gone at the first hint of a hurricane. The Insurance Institute for Business & Homes Safety now ranks Florida highest among hurricane-prone states for enforcing a stringent building code, which was developed after Andrew. The codes overhaul gives city officials confidence that even with more than double the number of housing units in city limits than there were 20 years ago, Homestead is better able to withstand a hit from another major hurricane. I think our Homestead is well-prepared. Our building code is so ready I dont want to see it tested, but I think its going to stand strong, Bateman says. Affordable land drove Homesteads construction boom in 2004 and 2005, even though those were two of the most destructive and busiest hurricane seasons on record, Bateman says. Agriculture is still a major business around Homestead, even with hundreds of acres of former farmland now occupied by singlefamily homes, Bateman says. The air force base never regained its former size. It is now a reserve base that has 250 full-time military and 300 civilian employees, compared to 6,000 military and 2,000 civilian employees in 1992. The city repeatedly reaches out to residents old and new with bilingual hurricane preparedness guides, inserts in utility bills and community police events to reinforce the idea that evacuation orders and storm preparation should be taken seriously, says Ed Bowe, Homesteads emergency management coordinator. Bowe was a Homestead police officer when Andrew struck, finding his way back to work the morning after landfall even though all the street signs and landmarks had been blown away. He has a stern warning for anyone who wouldnt heed an evacuation order ahead of a major hurricane: Wed give you a black marker and ask you to identify on your arm somewhere your Social Security number, he says. And they say, Why, what would you need that for? Well, this way, afterwards, well be able to identify who you are, and that sort brings it home for them. Oh, this is serious, huh? Yes, this is serious, we wouldnt be telling you otherwise. Robert Thompson, 80CALLAWAY, FLA.Florida Panhandle mayor Robert Thompson has died after an apparent exposure to mold while investigating a residents complaint. Thompson died Saturday. He was 80. Thompsons wife told The News Heraldthat doctors told her the mayor had died from a mold that damaged his physical appearance and mental faculties. Reeda Thompson said early last week, the mayor went to investigate a residents complaint about a ditch that needed to be cleaned. She said her husband told her he found mold and mildew there.

Associated PressWASHINGTON It took Mario Parker-Milligan less than a semester to decide he was paying too many fees to Higher One, the company hired by his college to pay out students financial aid on debit cards. Four years after he opted out, his classmates still face more than a dozen fees for replacement cards, for using the cards as all-purpose debit cards, for using an ATM other than the two on-campus kiosks owned by Higher One. They sold it as a faster, cheaper way for the college to get students their money, said Parker-Milligan, 23, student body president at Lane Community College in Eugene, Ore. It may be cheaper for the college, but its not cheaper for the students. As many as 900 colleges are pushing students into using payment cards that carry hefty costs, sometimes even to get to their financial aid money, according to a report to be released Wednesday by a public interest group. Colleges and banks rake in millions from the fees, often through secretive deals and sometimes in apparent violation of federal law, according to the report, an early copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press. More than two out of five U.S. higher-education students more than 9 million people attend schools that have deals with financial companies, states the report, written by the U.S. Public Interest Group Higher Education Fund. The fees add to the mountain of debt many students already take on to get a diploma. U.S. student debt tops $1 trillion, according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Student loans have surpassed credit cards as the biggest source of unsecured debt in America, according to the CFPB, which regulates cards and private student lenders. Among the fees charged by Higher One, according to its website, is a $50 lack of documentation fee for students who fail to submit certain paperwork. The Education Department called the charging of such fees unallowable in guidance to financial aid officers issued last month. Higher One founder and Chief Operating Officer Miles Lasater said in an emailed statement that the company takes compliance with the governments rules very seriously, and officially swears that to the government each year. We are committed to providing good value accounts that are designed for college students, he said, and students must review the companys fee list when they sign up for an account. He cited a separate study said that declared Higher One a low-cost provider for this market.Types of feesAmong the fees charged to students who open Higher One accounts are $50 if an account is overdrawn for more than 45 days, $10 per month if the student stops using his account for six months, $29 to $38 for overdrawing an account with a recurring bill payment and 50 cents to use a PIN instead of a signature system at a retail store. Higher One has agreements with 520 campuses that enroll more than 4.3 million students, about onefifth of the students enrolled in college nationwide, according to public filings. Wells Fargo and US Bank combined have deals with schools that enroll 3.7 million, the report said.Lack of fundingLane Community Colleges president, Mary Spilde, said in an interview the real problem is a lack of adequate public funding, which forces students to seek financial aid and colleges to find ways to cut costs. Many institutions are looking at ways to streamline and to do things that were good at, which is education and learning, and not banking, Spilde said. Programs like Higher Ones shift the cost of handing out financial aid money from universities, which no longer have to print and mail checks, to fee-paying students, said Rich Williams, the reports lead author. For decades, student aid was distributed without fees, Williams said. Now bank middlemen are making out like bandits using campus cards to siphon off millions of student aid dollars. Students can opt out of the programs and choose direct deposit or paper checks to receive their college aid, but relatively few do. The cards and accounts are marketed aggressively using college letterhead and websites carrying the endorsement of colleges. Higher One also warns students that it will take extra days if they choose direct deposit or a paper check. In the end, students feel locked into accounts before they have a chance to shop for a better deal, ParkerMilligan said. He said thats especially tough for poor students who rely on food stamps and other social services. Those students budget down to the penny, and dont plan on paying a fee when Higher Ones ATM runs out of cash, he said. Offerings by financial companies vary by campus. Some issue checking accounts with debit cards. Others offer prepaid debit cards, which are similar to bank debit cards but can carry higher fees and offer fewer consumer protections.All in oneOften, students campus ID cards double as payment cards. At the University of Minnesota, TCF Bank issues cards that serve as school IDs, ATM and debit cards, library cards, security cards, health care cards, phone cards, and storedvalue cards for vending machines, the report said. TCF also has branches on campus and 25-year naming rights to the football stadium. Its cards charge similar fees, the report stated. Having such visibility on campus is a big benefit for banks seeking exclusive access to an untapped group of potential customers. Many banks are willing to pay universities for the privilege.Colleges reimbursedUnder its contract with Huntington Bank, Ohio State University will receive $25 million over 15 years, plus a sweetener of $100 million in loans and investments for the neighborhoods around campus, the report said. Florida State receives a portion of every ATM fee paid by a student, it stated. Its difficult to get a full picture of how much money the schools are getting because most of them refuse to release their contracts with banks. Only a handful were available to the authors of the report. Ohio State and Florida State did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The National Association of College and University Business Officers, a trade group involved in the issue, did not respond to multiple requests for comment. Campus card deals have become more popular in part because of recent legal changes that cut into the profits banks can generate from students. A 2009 law banned credit cards given to students who had no way of repaying. It forced colleges to disclose deals with credit card companies and stopped some forms of marketing, such as offering students free gifts in exchange for obtaining a credit card. Until recently, banks also made a lot more money from student loans. They extended federal aid to students, and also offered confusingly similar, highercost private loans alongside the government programs. Congress cut them out of the equation in 2010. Neither change affected debit cards. As the recession forced states to slash higher education budgets, companies such as Higher One, Wells Fargo and US Bank approached colleges with an attractive proposition: The companies would assume the cost and hassle of handing out student aid funds, often paying for the privilege.Daniel Wagner can be reached at www.twitter.com/ wagnerreports. Editors note: An occasional look behind the rhetoric in political campaigns. RICARDOALONSO-ZALDIVAR Associated PressWASHINGTON Theyre throwing granny off a cliff! Thats the not-so-subtle message Republicans and Democrats seem to be converging on for political ads on health care this year, featuring heavy doses of what each side alleges the other will do to wreck Medicare. From President Barack Obamas overhaul law to GOP Rep. Paul Ryans privatization plan for future Medicare recipients, theres something about health care legislation that makes it a breeding ground for wild allegations. Families feel vulnerable to the catastrophic costs of serious illness, and few understand the labyrinth of private and government insurance, allowing partisans to fan their worst fears. Political pros play on health care worries to sway older voters. It is easy to deceive on the issue because the knowledge base of the electorate when it comes to the complexities of health care is relatively low, said Kathleen Hall Jamieson, an expert on political communication at the University of Pennsylvanias Annenberg Center. It would be hard to top Sarah Palins now-debunked assertion that death panels lurked in the recesses of Obamas law, but dont be surprised if that happens. Many people believe crazy things about health care because they want to believe them, said Drew Altman, president of the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. Todays outlandish claims remind him of fears about fluoridated drinking water in the 1950s. Sound far-fetched? Its already started. Earlier this year, former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum lent credence to an unfounded rumor the Obama administration would deny advanced treatment to stroke patients older than 70, allowing only comfort care. It didnt seem to matter that two doctors groups and the Health and Human Services Department refuted the rumor. And as for throwing granny off a cliff, two political ads are already depicting that one from the left and one from the right. Both dramatizations are getting attention on the Internet. The ad from the left, by The Agenda Project, features an actress playing an elderly woman in a wheelchair. Pushing her is a younger man acting the part of Ryan, R-Wis. America the Beautiful plays in the background. But the outing to a scenic overlook turns scary when he steers for the edge. She tries to fight, but he dumps her over the cliff. The caption urges viewers to let Ryan know America wouldnt be beautiful without Medicare. The ad from the right, by AmericanDoctors4Truth, shows an actor representing Obama pushing an elderly woman in a wheelchair off a cliff, after she demands a pacemaker recommended by her doctor. The ad takes things to another level by using a snippet of Obamas voice. It comes from a rambling response the president gave in 2009 to a woman who wanted to know how his health plan might affect patients like her mother, who got a pacemaker at the age of 100 and enjoyed a good life. A transcript of the town hall-style meeting shows Obama didnt directly answer the question. At one point, he suggests if theres waste involved it would be better to tell patients you know what, maybe this isnt going to help, maybe youre better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller. That snippet gets used in the ad. Later in his answer, Obama said maybe some patients should get a pacemaker faster, if that keeps them healthy. I mean, this can cut both ways, he said. Those words arent in the ad. Jamieson, who directs a fact-checking project, said both ads are examples of deceptive dramatization. Ryans plan would not affect current Medicare beneficiaries. And the doctors ad makes it sound as if Obama is gutting Medicare, when his law slows the programs future growth. Moreover, its unrealistic to suggest that either party believes it can jettison older voters. Erica Payne, a former Democratic Party fundraiser who founded the New Yorkbased Agenda Project, said she stands by the Ryan ad. It's dramatic, but it's accurate, said Payne, head of the public policy and advocacy group. Ophthalmologist Jane Lindell Hughes, a founder of Texas-based AmericanDoctors4Truth, defended the Obama ad as a parody that responds to Payne's commercial. It was absolutely a valid use of the president's voice, she said. People targeted by health scare campaigns say the attacks can accomplish two things: turning an individual into a pariah and shutting down legitimate consideration of new ideas. Pediatrician and health care expert Don Berwick, Obamas first Medicare chief, said he was never able to overcome the label of rationer in chief pinned on him by GOP critics, no matter how often he said he opposed rationing.

Associated PressLONDON The debt crisis that has ravaged Europe for the best part of three years has exposed a dislike of the single currency but little desire to abandon it, a wide-ranging survey of public opinion found Tuesday. Pew Research Centers survey across eight European Union countries, including five members of the 17-country eurozone, indicated the regions financial problems have triggered full-blown fears about the future of Europe as a political project. This crisis of confidence is evident in the economy, in the future, in the benefits of European economic integration, in EU membership, in the euro and in the free market system, Pew said in a statement accompanying its survey. Despite those concerns, Pew found there was no desire for those countries that use the euro to return to their former currencies, such as the French franc or the Spanish peseta. The euro launched in 1999 and is now used by 17 countries. In Greece, the epicenter of the debt crisis, 71 percent of those polled want to keep the euro, as against to 23 percent that want to return to the drachma. More people in Greece, which is now in its fifth year of a savage recession, think the euro has been good for them than bad 46 percent of those surveyed compared to 26 percent who thought it was a bad thing. These findings may be crucial as Greece heads to the polls June 17 in a general election many see as a referendum on the countrys euro membership. Varvara Konstantopoulou, a 65-year-old pensioner in Athens, summed up the dilemma at the heart of a country that is trapped between indefinite austerity and a catastrophic currency exit. I dont think the euro helped us. When we joined everything became more expensive, she said. But we are trapped now. If we leave the euro, our money will not be worth anything. Its worse for people on a fixed income. Her 45-year-old unemployed daughter, Alexia, agreed with her mother that Greece was not ready for the euro when it joined in 2001. However, she thinks the euro will survive but in the future, she said, countries should get a grip on their public finances so theres no repeat of the current crisis. Otherwise they will end up like us, she said. Every country should sort out its own problems, but they have to help us to keep things going smoothly (for the euro).BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, MAY30, 2012 A9 Advance Capital I: Balanc p 16.41+.11 RetInc 8.83+.01 Alger Funds B: SmCapGr 6.72+.10 AllianceBern A: BalanA p 16.24+.12 GlbThGrA p 59.90+1.36 SmCpGrA 36.94+.45 AllianceBern Adv: LgCpGrAd 28.09+.38 AllianceBern B: GlbThGrB t 51.48+1.16 GrowthB t 26.17+.30 SCpGrB t 29.51+.35 AllianceBern C: SCpGrC t 29.66+.35 Allianz Fds Instl: NFJDvVl 11.59+.12 SmCpVl 29.53+.32 Allianz Funds C: AGICGrthC 25.18+.39 Amer Beacon Insti: LgCapInst 19.77+.20 Amer Beacon Inv: LgCap Inv 18.75+.19 Ameri Century 1st: Growth 27.14+.35 Amer Century Adv: EqGroA p 22.74+.26 EqIncA p 7.44+.04 Amer Century Inv: AllCapGr 29.69+.38 Balanced 16.69+.11 DivBnd 11.11...

On Tuesday, oil prices fell, the euro sank to a 22-month low, and the yield on the U.S. governments 10-year Treasury note fell near a historic low after a report suggested that Spain will have more trouble repaying its debts. But stocks rose anyway. In fact, they had one of their best days in an otherwise dreary month. Investors focused on hopes that China is poised to rev up its economic growth machine and that upcoming elections in Greece will help the country stay in the eurozone. The overriding news isnt that great, said Robert Pavlik, chief market strategist at investment advisers Banyan Partners. But Greece and China are taking the pressure off the market in the short term. Gains in industrial stocks that depend heavily on the Chinese economy, like Caterpillar and Alcoa, helped push the Dow Jones industrial average up 125.86 points. The Dow closed at 12,580.69, up 1 percent. China is the largest market for aluminum, which Alcoa makes, and Caterpillar recently said it is aggressively courting China to sell its construction equipment. Both stocks gained 3 percent. It was only the fifth gain for the Dow this month. The index is down 4.8 percent for May and is headed for its first monthly loss since September. The main culprits behind the decline have been the increasing likelihood that Greece will drop out of the euro currency and a worsening of Spains financial condition. Facebook plunged 10 percent to $28.84, shaving $25 billion off from the companys market value in its first seven days of trading. The glitch-plagued IPO has drawn scrutiny from regulators and ire from disgruntled investors who had trouble executing trades. Blackberry maker Research in Motion plunged 11 percent in after-hours trading to $10 after the company said it expects to post a loss in its first quarter amid tough competition in the smartphone business. The Standard & Poors 500 index closed up 14.60 points at 1,332.42, and the Nasdaq composite added 33.46 points to 2,870.99.

Page A10WEDNESDAY, MAY 30, 2012Reject FDOT dealThe Board of County Commissioners will be asked to participate in a state-funded matching grant by the Florida Department of Transportation in the near future. The purpose of this project will be to pave the lime rock road on both the north and south sides of the barge canal. At best, this project will not show benefits for years to come. The countys cost for this would be $148,800. Meanwhile, Citrus Springs residents are faced with traveling on failing roads every day. There are approximately 440 miles of paved roads in Citrus Springs, most of which are failing and in need of repair and resurfacing. Keep in mind that it is 370 miles from Citrus County to Atlanta, Georgia, to give you an idea of the magnitude of this problem. Currently, Citrus Springs residents are paying the brunt of the road repair through a Municipal Services Benefit Unit, or MSBU, which is added to the ad valorem taxes of each resident. The current MSBU is also paying for street lights, fire hydrants, mowing, sign maintenance and replacement in addition to two full-time county employees and their benefits. The countys only contribution is matching the amount used for road repair by the MSBU. Citrus Springs contributes more than $6.4 million in property taxes to Citrus County annually. Yet citizens living in Citrus Springs are paying more than their fair share for services through an MSBU while their contribution to the county coffers are being used in other areas of the county. I would hope the BOCC would reject this grant proposal and use that money where it would have an immediate impact. Showing some respect for those living in Citrus Springs would be a good start.Bernie Leven Citrus Springs Service appreciatedRe: Water threat exaggerated, Dr. William Dixon, Page C3, May 27. I hope the nasty comments directed at you (Gary Kuhl) in (the May 27) Chronicledid not dull your normal smile. The comments made had to have been just attention-getting devices. (Dr. Dixon) could not possibly believe that each of us has property rights to remove vast quantities of water from the aquifer that we share and from under our neighbors property. With all his listed credentials, I am surprised that he thinks the nitrogen from the droppings of 30,000 head of cattle would be filtered out by the soil. If he had any chemistry classes, he must have slept through them. With your particular combination of degrees and your extensive experience, we look forward to you continuing to help us keep our world healthy, beautiful and productive.Al Grubman Inverness At a time when Floridas 11 state universities are financially gasping, the Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott are throwing $50 million away on a whimsical new school that might as well be called Useless State. Its the work of a Lake Wales Republican named J.D. Alexander, who sadly for taxpayers chaired the powerful Senate Budget Committee. Alexander is leaving the Legislature because of term limits, but as a goingaway present he demanded that his colleagues fund a new university in his home district. And then he basically stomped his little feet and held his breath and huffily threatened to gut another schools budget if he didnt get his way. And most of his fellow Republicans, including our governor, caved in like the phonies and wimps they are. As a result, Floridians are paying for a new university that we dont need, and is already millions over budget before the first class meets. Its a foolhardy and very expensive mistake, and its name is Florida Polytechnic. If you live in the Lakeland area, you know that there has existed for many years a busy tech campus, a branch of the University of South Florida. Along comes Sen. Alexander and decides that Lakeland urgently needs its own independent state university, that the school should be called Florida Polytechnic and that it should replace USF Polytech, which has been there 20 years. Alexander pushed hard, saying a whole new institution was needed to produce more graduates with the skills to fill jobs in science, engineering and technology. When some lawmakers balked, Alexander said he would hack $79 million from the USF budget a brutal 58 percent reduction for a school serving 47,000 students. The House would never have approved eviscerating USF, but the empty threat worked on emptyheaded legislators and thus was born Useless State. Classes are supposed to begin the fall of 2013, but the instant university is facing a few problems. No board of trustees, for example, which makes it hard to attract a president. No president, which makes it hard to attract faculty. No faculty, which makes it hard to attract students. And then theres the issue of money. Your money. Does $12 million in architectural fees for Florida Polytechnic sound reasonable to parents of students at the University of Florida or Florida State or A&M, who are facing hefty hikes in tuition and housing? According to the Tampa Bay Times, USF chief operating officer John Long said the construction project on the Lakeland campus will cost between $112 million and $115 million. Unfortunately, theres only about $99 million available. The shortfall would be made up by private donors, hopefully in time to install technology labs before a few actual technology students show up. A fuller picture of the Florida Polytechnic fiasco was laid out last week to a committee of the state Board of Governors, which is supposed to oversee the university system. Normally the board would have been deeply involved with the birth of the new school an authority granted by voters in a constitutional amendment. The whole point was to avoid such costly debacles, and to buffer higher education from the influence of grimy politics. But, as we know, constitutionality isnt a burning concern of current legislative leaders, or of the governor, no matter how many of their dumb moves get stomped in court. In this case, one vain and powerful senator wanted a brand new university, and he didnt want to wait for the Board of Governors, which had already approved a stepped plan for developing Florida Polytechnic. At Alexanders prodding, lawmakers barged ahead and created the school, basically evicted USF and started shoveling money toward Lakeland. Even that towns Republican senator, Paula Dockery, was chagrined. Before the troglodytes took control of Tallahassee, nobody went out and started a public university without a set number of students, without infrastructure, without leadership. Or accreditation. You remember accreditation, right? No biggie. Meanwhile J.D. Alexander is out the door, damage done. Only a coldblooded cynic would wonder if Alexander or any of his pals will benefit from the gush of taxpayer funds being used to construct Useless State. A court could stop the bleeding, but in the meantime applications are being taken for the make-believe schools Board of Trustees. Gov. Scott recently sent out an email seeking candidates. He says hes looking for talented and visionary individuals. Of course! Hell also send his personal unicorn to pick you up and fly you through the fairy dust to Lakeland.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Williamson You may differ with my choice, but not my right to choose. David S. Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARDGerry Mulligan ..........................................publisherCharlie Brennan ............................................editorMike Arnold ..........................................HR directorSandra Frederick ............................managing editorCurt Ebitz ........................................citizen memberMac Harris ......................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ................................guest member Employment stats cause for optimism Sometimes the economic news is terribly confusing. Take the topic of unemployment, for example. We read about national statistics, statewide statistics and regional and local statistics. The numbers are up, then theyre down. Or, depending on areas and time periods compared, theyre both. Add to the confusion by throwing all the various definitions into the mix. Workforce surveys look at people who are employed, people who are unemployed and people who are not in the labor force (a category that has subsets of marginally attached to the labor force and discouraged workers). Dont forget the agricultural workers, the part-timers and the self-employed, unpaid family workers, and those working in private households. The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics devotes a lengthy web page just to explain them all. From month to month we are bombarded with reports on the unemployment numbers, which may or may not reflect what we see in our own neighborhoods and among our own friends. Some indications are more cheery, some havent changed much. So, why all the excitement in Citrus County when the most recent unemployment statistics were released? In April, 2012, for the first time since 2008, the average jobless rate in the three-county Workforce Connection region of Citrus, Levy and Marion counties dropped below 10 percent. Two years ago it was nearly 13 percent. In Citrus County the jobless rate was 9.6 percent in April, down a half-percent from the previous month. Does this give a full picture of our economic situation? No. Does it mean almost everyone who wants a job has one? No. But are we going in the right direction? Absolutely. Economists generally agree that a jobless rate somewhere between 4 and 6 percent constitutes full employment, the point at which the number of available jobs matches the number of people seeking work. By that definition, we have a long way to go. Although many are still struggling, we are seeing significant business openings in Citrus County. And maybe jobseekers are adjusting their expectations, taking positions that previously were not of interest. The bottom line? We may not have established our new normal yet, but were on the road to getting firmly back on our feet as a community. THE ISSUE:Jobless rate drops again.OUR OPINION:Going in the right direction.

We have everything. Theyre raising our homeowners insurance. Everythings coming after us. Houses are going down in value and we cant sell them. We dont have jobs. Life is short. Cancer. Heart disease. Why do we need another threat?No dogs on trailDogs should be banned from the trail and all feral cats captured and pet owners fined for damages their pets cause. In Inverness, we have cats full of fleas, ticks and lice climbing on and destroying screens, killing beautiful birds and using our gardens for toilets and spraying our homes, as well as inconsiderate people walking their dogs on the trail. The stench is disgusting. It gets on shoes and bicycle tires and spreads all kinds of parasites and diseases that harm other pets, wildlife and humans. Please take a poll and see if people want the dogs banned from the trail. County holdingsId like to know why our county got into buying real estate and renting it. They bought about 20 to 25 places here in Beverly Hills and that brings our house value way down and Id like to know where they came up with that money. Outside influencesI agree with the letter by Mr. Krieger about lobbyists. Its the influence of special-interest groups and the billions of dollars spent on lobbying. Were all taxpayers. My industry, the health care industry, has enormous pressures in lobbying and its highly regulated and the laws dont make any sense to the people doing the work. And the other industry, the nuclear energy industry, I have family members in that industry and its also so regulated and its so much red tape. But I guess because government is so corrupt, youve got to have lobbyists. I think we should get rid of all the lobbyists, but that wouldnt, thats not going to happen. Theres too much money involved, but its the taxpayers suffering. Algae all overCan the Chronicle help in getting help for the algae problem in Blue Lake Beverly in Beverly Hills? The lake is disgusting. Aquatics said they only handle lakes with boats on them. Ive tried other places. I do not know who else to call to get it to look beautiful again.

Keep animals coolThis call is in regards to the summer heat coming. And the people (who) have animals need to make sure they have shelter and a lot of water. If they cant put them in the house, they shouldnt have them.Thanks, maamId like to thank the woman who found my sunglasses at the bank in Beverly Hills. They were issued to me right after I had cataract surgery and I could not go outside without them. Also, I would like to suggest to her if she ever found another pair of glasses, instead of placing them in her purse, give them to one of the bank tellers. Im sure theyd find the rightful owner, who would be happy to get them back.Provide for petsWhat I have seen lately is disturbing. Some people are taking their pets that spent many years being loving and loyal as part of the family and dumping them at the shelter. They are put in an overcrowded kennel to spend their last days without their families, scared and unloved. We recently had to make the difficult decision regarding our pet. We had her humanely euthanized. It is our responsibility as pet owners to take care of our pets and make those tough decisions. How can anyone abandon a member of their family? It is heart-rending.Law by lobbyistsDue to our U.S. Supreme Courts decision to allow unlimited contributions to the PAC groups, we now have the best country in the world that money can buy, and money is buying. The lobbyists outnumber the congressmen 10-1. Think about that. Where do you think our laws are coming from? Not from the lawmen. The lobbyists are making the decisions for us. Mind your flagsMyself, I am a retired Army veteran. I have a simple request that groups and people would bone up on the proper respect for the American flag and when theyre taking pictures to be submitted to the Chronicle, make sure youve got the flag in the right position. Its such a simple request.Moving ceremonyHats off to the activity department at Arbor Trails Nursing Home for their afternoon ceremony Friday (May 18) for the veterans and the facilitys patrons who were also veterans. That was very moving and very caring a very good job. Well done.Cut from the topThis cutting a lot of the jobs and things and the cutting out a lot of the school stuff and everything, thats all great. But how come we never hear any cutting on the officials salaries? They have gone way up where they dont need to have them that high. Or cut out some of the programs that they have. Thats where we need to start.Paper wasteWhen I first moved to Citrus County, I got a voter registration card. Every time I voted, I had to show that as identification so Id be able to vote. The past years, they did away with that card. Now they send me a Citrus County voters information card. It says, Not for identification at the polls. I dont understand why they send it. What a waste of taxpayers money. Why dont we just keep the Citrus County voter registration card that I received when I first lived here? To me, its duplication and a lot of work for nothing. You still have to show a photo ID and a signature. This is absolutely ridiculous and a waste of taxpayers money.Litter fightersThank you to those people who cleaned up all the litter along (U.S.) 41 outside Citrus Springs and toward Dunnellon. Their efforts are very much appreciated. Now, if we can get the lowlifes to quit littering, we can keep this place looking quite pristine. Thank you.Too much testingHow are New Yorks Regents exams being received? Are they successful or not? I agree the FCAT and all these tests they do in Florida are kind of crazy, really. Theres just too much testing going on with all different other types of tests. But I wish someone would just look into New York and see how theyve been doing Regents exams forever and I was just wondering if theres any history saying its a good thing or a bad thing.Naughts and OsIt disappoints me to see the number of people in our community who do not know the difference of using the zero and the O in conversations and other subjects, especially the TV anchors, the sports announcers and even some people (who) are in the financial field. Theyll still say OOO, when there is no O. The O is in the alphabet, but zeros are in the numerical numbers. Come on, people. Theres a chance, when youre on TV, to educate the public. Why dont you try to help, including our children?Inverness CheckersTo the person or people who are wishing they had a Checkers down in Crystal River, I guess. Theres a (Checkers) up here alive and well in Inverness right on (State Road) 44. If they want to have some Checkers burgers, theyre welcome to come on up here.AntiheroesLike we dont have enough problems in America with violence. Now they have a program on Discovery TV called Outlaw Empires, where they glorify the gangs. Oh yeah, thats good. Keep it up. Good TV. Great celebrationCongratulations and many thanks to VFW Post 4337 for the wonderful dinner and program held to honor all veterans and especially the World War II veterans who will be flying to Washington, D.C., to see their memorial and other landmarks. Congratulations also to Barbara Mills, organizer, and to the young girl who did a beautiful job singing The Star Spangled Banner solo.Who eats it?I was wondering, if a customer walks out on his bill in a restaurant, is the server responsible for paying that bill? Can the owner of the restaurant make the server pay for that guests check? I was just wondering about some opinions on how that goes.

Webcam spy issues apologyNEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. A former Rutgers University student convicted of using a webcam to spy on his male roommate kissing another man days before the roommate killed himself, publicly apologized on Tuesday for the first time. Dharun Ravi said in a statement issued through his lawyer he was sorry for what he called his thoughtless, insensitive, immature, stupid and childish choices. Ravis roommate, Tyler Clementi, threw himself from New York Citys George Washington Bridge in 2010. Ravi was sentenced in March to 30 days in jail. He said Tuesday hell start serving his term Thursday in New Brunswick. The sentencing judge had criticized Ravi for a lack of remorse and had told him: I havent heard you apologize once. Ravi, now 20, was convicted of 15 criminal counts, including bias intimidation and invasion of privacy. Spectacle Police: Severed foot sent to officeOTTAWA, Ontario Police said a severed human foot was mailed to the headquarters of Canadas ruling Conservative party. Ottawa police stated Tuesday a box containing a human foot was delivered by Canada Post on Tuesday. Police were called shortly by someone at the party offices reporting a suspicious package. The first officers to arrive saw what appeared to be blood stains on the package. Police in Montreal investigating a torso found in a trash bin were checking on whether there might be a link.Greek experts find Roman wrecks ATHENS, Greece Two Roman-era shipwrecks have been found in deep water off a western Greek island, challenging the conventional theory that ancient shipmasters stuck to coastal routes rather than risking the open sea, an official said Tuesday. Greeces culture ministry said the two third-century wrecks were discovered earlier this month during a survey of an area where a Greek-Italian gas pipeline is to be sunk. They lay between 0.7 to 0.9 miles deep in the sea between Corfu and Italy. That would place them among the deepest known ancient wrecks in the Mediterranean. Angeliki Simossi, head of Greeces underwater antiquities department, said sunken ancient ships are generally found 100 to 130 feet deep. Most scholars believe that ancient traders were unwilling to veer far offshore, unlike warships which were unburdened by ballast and cargo. From wire reports Nation BRIEF World BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A12WEDNESDAY, MAY 30, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Associated PressA road crosses through an agricultural area of a forest in San Francisco de Macoris, Dominican Republic. Conservationists are establishing a sanctuary they say will be like no other in the Dominican Republic, blending sustainable agriculture with preservation on former pasture land at the edge of a cloud forest that will help protect a songbird called Bicknells thrush, which migrates annually from the northeastern U.S. and southern Canada. Investors saving Dominican forest and an elusive songbird Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO DE MACORIS, Dominican Republic An elusive songbird that wings its way each year from austere mountaintops of the northeastern U.S. to the steamy forests of the Caribbean has inspired the creation of what conservationists hope will be a new model for nature reserves in a country that has long struggled with deforestation. The reserve is taking shape in a lushly overgrown former cattle ranch measuring about 1,000 acres, at the edge of a deep green forest in the Dominican Republics rugged northeast. Conservationminded Dominican and U.S. investors have acquired the plot as a pilot project, hoping to protect what they say is a global biodiversity hotspot thats home to dozens of threatened species. Tentatively known as the Reserva Privada Zorzal, the government sees the reserve as a potential example, showing that such land can be put to better uses than burning down the trees to convert it to pasture, a typical approach in this Caribbean country with only about 40 percent of its forest cover left. Neighboring Haiti, which shares the island of Hispaniola, has virtually none of its forest standing. Jesus Moreno, a Dominican businessman whose family is partially funding the reserve, says the portion of the property where most of the trees have already been removed is well-suited to lowintensity, organic agriculture. He plans to grow macadamia trees and cacao, the raw material in chocolate, while allowing the forest to regenerate, in perpetuity, on three-fourths of the holding. The countrys environment minister is scheduled to inaugurate the reserve project on June 5. I am not trying to make this into a big business and make a lot of money, said Moreno, whose familys ventures also include a nursery that grows macadamia trees and the countrys only factory processing the nuts. We are trying to create a model and break the cycle of destruction. The concept of setting aside private land for conservation in land trusts or easements is an old one, long in use in the U.S. and elsewhere, but still rare in the Dominican Republic, a largely poor country. Some private landowners have set aside tracts for ecotourism and nature reserves, and the government has designated more than 130 public reserves. But much of the countrys forests face threats from development, agriculture and illegal timber harvesting, carving what remains into ever smaller chunks that leave species isolated and vulnerable. In practice, the government reserves usually provide protection to endangered species in name only, said Sesar Rodriguez, the executive director of the Dominican Environmental Consortium. Western nations expel Syrian envoys Associated PressBEIRUT As U.N. officials cited eyewitness accounts of shadowy gunmen slaughtering whole families in their homes, Western nations expelled Syrian diplomats Tuesday in a coordinated move against President Bashar Assads regime over the massacre of more than 100 people. U.N. special envoy Kofi Annan met with Assad in Damascus to try to salvage what was left of a peace plan, which since being brokered six weeks ago has failed to stop any of the violence on the ground. Survivors of the Houla massacre blamed pro-regime gunmen for at least some of the carnage as the killings reverberated inside Syria and beyond, further isolating Assad and embarrassing his few remaining allies. Its very hard for me to describe what I saw, the images were incredibly disturbing, a Houla resident who hid in his home during the massacre told The Associated Press on Tuesday. Women, children without heads, their brains or stomachs spilling out. He said the pro-regime gunmen, known as shabiha, targeted the most vulnerable in the farming villages that make up Houla, a poor area in Homs province. They went after the women, children and elderly, he said, asking that his name not be used out of fear of reprisals. Assads government often deploys fearsome militias that provide muscle for the regime and carry out military-style attacks. They frequently work closely with soldiers and security forces, but the regime never acknowledges their existence, allowing it to deny responsibility for their actions. U.N. peacekeeping chief Herve Ladsous said there are strong suspicions that pro-Assad fighters were responsible for some of the killings, adding that he has seen no reason to believe that third elements or outside forces were involved, although he did not rule it out. The Syrian regime has denied any role in the massacre, blaming the killings on armed terrorists who attacked army positions in the area and slaughtered innocent civilians. It has provided no evidence to support its narrative, nor has it given a death toll. Nature reserve funded Computer virus hits Mideast Associated PressLONDON Iran and other Middle East countries have been hit with a cunning computer virus that can eavesdrop on computer users and their co-workers and filch information from nearby cellphones, cybersecurity experts said Tuesday. And suspicion immediately fell on Israel as the culprit. The Russian Internet security firm Kaspersky Lab ZAO said the Flame virus is unprecedented in size and complexity, with researcher Roel Schouwenberg marveling at its versatility. It can be used to spy on everything that a user is doing, he said. Computers in Iran appear to have been particularly affected, and Kasperskys conclusion that the virus was crafted at the behest of a national government fueled speculation it could be part of an Israeli-backed campaign of electronic sabotage against the Jewish states archenemy. The virus can activate a computers audio systems to listen in on Skype calls or office chatter. It can also take screenshots, log keystrokes and in one of its more novel functions steal data from Bluetoothenabled cellphones. Schouwenberg said there is evidence to suggest the people behind Flame also helped craft Stuxnet, a virus believed to have attacked nuclear centrifuges in Iran in 2010. Many suspect Stuxnet was the work of Israeli intelligence. Tehran has not said whether it lost any data to Flame, but a unit of the Iranian communications and information technology ministry said it has produced an anti-virus capable of identifying and removing Flame from its computers. Israels vice premier did little to deflect suspicion about the countrys possible involvement in the attack. Whoever sees the Iranian threat as a significant threat is likely to take various steps, including these, to hobble it, Moshe Yaalon told Army Radio when asked about Flame. Israel is blessed with high technology, and we boast tools that open all sorts of opportunities for us. Researchers not involved in Flames discovery were more skeptical of its sophistication than Kaspersky, with Richard Bejtlich of Virginia-based Mandiant saying the virus appeared similar to spyware used by the German government to monitor criminal suspects. There have been tools like this employed by highend teams for many years, he said. Colorado-based Webroot said the virus wasnt as complex or as stealthy as Stuxnet and was a relatively easy threat to identify. Dharun Ravito serve 30 days in jail. Authors son seeks Malcolm X letter at Syracuse Associated PressALBANY, N.Y. The son of Malcolm Xs biographer is asking Syracuse University to hand over a letter in which the slain activist writes about his shifting views on race relations, claiming his family is the rightful owner. Malcolm X wrote to Alex Haley, his collaborator for The Autobiography of Malcolm X, from Saudi Arabia in April 1964, about 10 months before he was gunned down at a New York City hotel ballroom. The publisher of the autobiography later gave the letter to Syracuse University as part of a larger cache of papers to be used by researchers. But Haleys son, William Haley, said the publisher never had legal title to the letter and could not give it away. His lawyer said Tuesday he plans to make a legal demand this week for the letter, which he believes is worth at least $650,000. The history is important for us as a family, the legacy, William Haley said. Haley said he was acting on behalf of himself and his two sisters. Haley said its possible the family would decide to sell the letter, but that would be a group decision. Alex Haley died in 1992. So much of AfricanAmerican history gets lost and is sometimes not in the place where we prefer it to be, Haley said. Malcolm Xs letter, written after a pilgrimage to Mecca, addresses the recent time he spent with Muslims whose skin was the whitest of white. In fact, what I have seen and experienced on this pilgrimage has forced me to re arrange much of my thought patterns, and to toss aside some of my previous conclusions, he wrote. The letter was sent to publisher Grove Press for inclusion in the autobiography, which was first published in 1965. Grove included the letter in files it gave to Syracuse University in 1969. Haleys attorney, Gregory J. Reed of Detroit, said Haley passed along the letter to Grove only so it could be included in the autobiography and that Grove never had legal title. Haley said he is acting now because he only found out about details of the letter recently after talking to Reed, who collects Malcolm X material.

Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Philip Humber won for the first time since throwing a perfect game in April, and the Chicago White Sox extended their winning streak to seven games by beating the Tampa Bay Rays 7-2 on Tuesday night. Hideki Matsui homered in his Tampa Bay debut. The Rays purchased the 2009 World Series MVPs contract from Triple-A Durham before the game. Humber (2-2) was 0-2 with an 8.22 ERA over six starts since his gem against Seattle on April 21. The right-hander allowed two runs and five hits over seven innings Tuesday. Alexei Ramirez and Dayan Viciedo both had two RBIs for the White Sox, who have won six in a row on the road. Ramirez had an RBI double during a five-run sixth against James Shields (6-3) as Chicago took a 6-2 lead. A.J. Pierzynski, Viciedo and Orlando Hudson hit run-scoring singles, while Alejandro De Aza drove in a run with a grounder. Shields gave up six runs and 10 hits in six innings. Matsui put the Rays ahead 2-0 on a long homer to right off Humber in the fourth. It was his first homer since Sept. 19 against Texas while with Oakland. Matsui, who turns 38 on June 12, started in left field. He played 13 games with Durham after signing a minor league contract with Tampa Bay on April 30. The White Sox got to 2-1 in the fifth when Viciedo singled, went to third when Shields was charged with an error for an errant pickoff attempt and scored on Ramirezs single. Viciedo hit a solo shot in the eighth. The White Sox have homered in 15 consecutive games. Chicagos Paul Konerko went 0 for 4, including three strikeouts, to stop his 14-game hitting streak.

Clemens remains charged with two counts of perjury and three counts of making false statements before Congress, along with 13 other obstructive acts. All relate to Clemens testimony before Congress at a 2008 hearing and his deposition that preceded it. One of the statements dismissed was Clemens contention he had no idea that former Sen. George Mitchell wanted to talk with him in preparation for the 2007 Mitchell Report on drugs in baseball. Prosecutors rested their case Tuesday. The judge ruled against Clemens request for a dismissal of all charges.Police: Boxer was driving too fast for conditionsMARIETTA, Ga. Boxer Paul Williams was driving his modified sport motorcycle too fast for conditions when he crashed into an embankment, police said Tuesday. Williams was paralyzed and has no movement from the waist down after Sundays crash in Marietta, northwest of Atlanta, his manager George Peterson said. The 30-year-old athlete severed his spinal cord after falling on his back and head when he was thrown from his motorcycle, Peterson said. Police said he could not negotiate a curve, and the bike slammed into the embankment.Judge dismisses NFL retiree lawsuit versus unionMINNEAPOLIS A lawsuit filed against the NFL Players Association by retirees has been dismissed. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson issued her order Tuesday from St. Paul, Minn. Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive end Carl Eller, a former Minnesota Vikings star, was the lead plaintiff in the complaint that argued current players and their attorneys had no right to bargain with NFL owners about retiree benefits because they werent legally a union last summer.From wire reports Associated PressNEWARK, N.J. A little less than two years after battling for the services of high-scoring free agent forward Ilya Kovalchuk, the New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings are going after a bigger prize the Stanley Cup. To tell the truth, hardly anyone picked the Devils and Kings to get this far. The odds were lotterylike, and the teams beat them with authority in reaching a series that will open Wednesday at the Prudential Center. You hear it every year, but it doesnt get old: Once you make it in, you have a chance to get here, Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. I think thats one thing that the prognosticators dont consider. I always put it this way: When the playoffs start, the clocks should be reset. Because everyones starting over, and all 16 teams have a shot to win it all. I think both teams would agree with that this year. Led by Kovalchuk and a 40-year-old Martin Brodeur, the Devils are just the second No. 6 seed to reach the final. The 2004 Calgary Flames, who were coached by Sutter, were the other. Riding the goaltending of Jonathan Quick, the Kings overcame even bigger obstacles. They are only the second No. 8 seed Kings, Devils face off in Stanley Cup finals tonight Roger Clemens Paul Williams Associated PressABOVE: Serena Williams reacts shortly before losing to Frances Virginie Razzano during their first-round match Tuesday in the French Open tennis tournament at Roland Garros stadium in Paris. BELOW: Razzano reacts after defeating Williams 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3. Down and outat Roland Garros stadium Associated PressPARIS For more than a decade, whatever the state of her health or her game, no matter the opponent or arena, Serena Williams always won first-round matches at Grand Slam tournaments. Always. Until Tuesday at the French Open. Until Williams came within two points of victory nine times, yet remarkably failed to close the deal against unheralded and 111th-ranked Virginie Razzano of France. Until a theatrical, 23-minute final game filled with 30 points, more than enough for an entire set, featuring ebbs and flows, high-pressure shotmaking and nerves and even thunderous protests from the crowd when the chair umpire docked Razzano a point. That look-awayand-you-miss-something game included five wasted break points for Williams, and seven match points that she saved, until Razzano finally converted her eighth, 3 hours and 3 minutes after they began playing. All told, until Tuesday, Williams was 46 for 46 in openers at tennis top venues, and those encounters tended to be routine and drama-free, befitting a woman so good the goal and 13 times, the end result was a major championship. Not this time. Now Williams first-round Grand Slam record is 46-1 after as stunning a denouement as could be in a 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3 loss to Razzano on the red clay at Roland Garros. The fifth-seeded Williams, considered by many a pre-tournament favorite, led 5-1 in the second-set tiebreaker, before dropping the next 13 points in a row. Suddenly, her shots didnt always carry their usual oomph; her court coverage was ordinary. Ive been through so much in my life, and ... Im not happy, by no means, said Williams, her eyes welling with tears. I just always think things can be worse. The 30-year-old American returned to action last year after missing about 10 months because of a series of health scares, including two foot operations and blood clots, a scary stretch she said altered her world view. The rowdy spectators in Court Philippe Chatrier would have been pulling for Razzano anyway, of course, because of her citizenship. But their support was particularly strong because of her recent heartbreak, wellknown in France: Razzanos fiance Stephane Vidal, also her longtime coach died at age 32 of a brain tumor in May 2011, a little more than a week before her first-round match at last years French Open.

Pine Barrens No. 10 is a wonderful par 3 that could easily be a signature hole for this course. This is the only par 3 on Pine Barrens that does not have any sand close to the green. With newly added tees in 2010, this hole plays at a maximum length of 228 yards. Most players will be challenged when using the yardage from the original design which is 185. Hemmed in by pine trees on both sides and a waste area that runs almost the entire length of the hole, players must fly their golf ball the entire length of the hole. A low area is short and to the left of the green, which funnels any wayward golf shots to this collection area. With a severe slope at the front of the green, it is very difficult to make your par from this area.Tee shotThe tee shot must carry all the way to the hole on the green. The entire length of the hole is relatively flat; therefore, club selection will only vary because of wind conditions. The green slopes slightly from back to front, but more severely from right to left as you look at the hole. Visible from the tee is the steep slope that fronts the green causing golfers to think carefully when making a club selection. Mis-hit golf shots that land on the front of the green will roll back into the fairway because of this steep false front. For most players, tee shots on par 3s tend to land short of the flagstick and/or green. Very rarely do you find individuals who hit their golf balls over the green on a par 3, which is the place you would like to miss the green on this particular hole.On the greenThe ideal tee shot will be to the back half of the green and favoring the right half of this wide green. Although this may present a slightly downhill putt, there is more area of green to land your ball. On these difficult par 3s, you feel as though you have won a small victory when walking off this hole with a par 3.Pros tipThe majority of golfers hit too little club and consequently do not fly the golf ball far enough to get to the golf hole. It is always a good idea to swing one more club, take an easier and smoother swing that will promote better rhythm and timing in the golf swing. Because of the pine trees that line both sides of this hole, you need to know the direction of the wind to select the correct club to hit from the tee. On this particular hole, it is better to be over the green than to be short; therefore, choose the club that will more than cover the distance to the flagstick. Ranked No. 2 in Florida by GolfWeek as the best courses you can play, Pine Barrens is a golf course that avid golfers must play. This hole could easily be considered a signature hole as it truly defines what the Pine Barrens make-up and character are all about, gentle rolling terrain with sand and pine trees.Scott Wyckoff is the general manager and PGA golf professional at World Woods Golf Club.

DOUGFERGUSON AP Golf WriterDUBLIN, Ohio Bubba Watson had a 3-iron, a small audience and a point to prove. The flag was 251 yards away, with a light wind out of the right. With an open stance, he hit a high cut and begged it to carry the bunker, which it barely did. Next, he aimed some 15 yards to the left of the green and hit a bullet with a slight hook that landed on the back corner of the green. Still got it! Watson jokingly proclaimed. He hasnt forgotten how to play. He hasnt been gone from the game that long, though it sure seems that way. It has been more than seven weeks since Watson hit that wild hook with a wedge out of the Georgia pines and onto the 10th green to win the Masters in a playoff. He became an overnight sensation in a green jacket, and then he virtually disappeared from the golf scene. He has played only one tournament since, in New Orleans, and only because he was the defending champion. The reminder of how long Watson has stayed away from golf came on the practice range Tuesday at Muirfield Village. With the U.S. Open only two weeks away, players were still congratulating him on winning the last major two months ago. Thats not necessarily a bad thing. Winning majors can be a life-changing experience for everyone except those who seem to win them all the time. Few, however, had this many life-changing moments away from golf as Watson in such a short time. He and his wife, Angie, adopted a baby boy two weeks before he became a Masters champion. The adoption process is still not finished, though a few months doesnt seem like much considering they began thinking about adoption four years ago. Watson is selling two houses and trying to find a home in Orlando. (The baby was born in Florida.) And if thats not enough, he has organized Bubba Bash on Tuesday night with some 10 Christian bands to raise money for a hospital in Kenya. Typical of a guy named Bubba, he has arranged for Waffle House to provide the backstage meals. A lot of stuff going on in our life, Watson said. A lot of positive things, nothing bad. But its just different changes. Perhaps it shouldnt be surprising Watson replied to a fan on Twitter on Friday during The Players Championship that hes not missing golf at all. You can turn your phone off or lock down yourself at Isleworth and nobody can get to you, and just spend time with the family, play golf when I want to, Watson said. Its been a good thing. Its been relaxing, rewarding. Its been fun. The Memorial boasts a strong field, as usual, with defending champion Steve Stricker, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy and Hunter Mahan leading the list of top players. Dustin Johnson returns from a back injury, his first tournament since Doral the second week of March. Watson adds another layer of intrigue, mainly because he is a major champion who has accumulated more rust than riches in the past two months.

Associated PressDefending champion Rafael Nadal returns the ball to Simone Bolelli during their first round match Tuesday in the French Open at Roland Garros stadium in Paris. He had encouraged her to go ahead and enter the tournament, so she did, honoring his memory by stepping on court to play, a black ribbon pinned to her shirt. When she walked out of the locker room for what turned out to be a straight-set loss, she wore a gold chain that Vidal had given her as a Valentines Day gift a few years earlier. Honestly, the past is the past, Razzano said Tuesday, when she dealt with leg cramps starting in the second set. I think now I did my mourning. I feel good today. It took time. Said Williams: I know of her story and her husband. We all have stories. I mean, I almost died, and Venus is struggling herself. So, you know, its life. You know, it just depends on how you deal with it. She obviously is dealing with it really well. Williams exit was by far the most newsworthy development on Day 3 at Roland Garros, where Maria Sharapova won 6-0, 6-0, and Rafael Nadal began his bid for a record seventh French Open championship with a straight-set victory. Williams entered Tuesday having won her previous 17 matches, all on clay. She withdrew before what would have been her most recent match, a semifinal at the Italian Open on May 19, citing a bad lower back, but said Friday she was better, then refused to place blame on that injury after being beaten by Razzano. No, no, no. I didnt feel anything abnormal, said Williams, who counts the 2002 French Open among her 13 Grand Slam singles trophies. I was 100 percent healthy. Occasionally after losing points, Williams would bend forward and lean on her racket frame, as though perhaps stretching her lower back. She also clutched at that spot and whacked her racket there after miscues. And there were plenty of those, 47 in all, 11 more than her foe.

The second-seeded Nadal made only 18 unforced errors Tuesday, fewer than half as many as his opponent. The Spaniard improved to 46-1 at the clay-court Grand Slam tournament. His only loss came in the fourth round in 2009, against Robin Soderling. Nadal won the French Open every year from 2005-08, and again in 2010 and 2011. Bjorn Borg is the only other man with six titles at Roland Garros. Nadal also is seeking his 11th Grand Slam trophy overall, which would pull him even with Borg and Rod Laver for fourth most in tennis history.Sharapova begins French Open with 6-0, 6-0 victoryPARIS Maria Sharapova got off to a quick start at the French Open, winning her first-round match 6-0, 6-0 in 48 minutes. The second-seeded Sharapova never gave 78th-ranked Alexandra Cadantu of Romania a chance Tuesday, compiling an 18-0 edge in winners. Sharapova won 51 points and lost only 18. The Russian is trying to complete a career Grand Slam by winning the championship at Roland Garros. She has won three major titles but never been to a final at the French Open. The 22-year-old Cadantu has never beaten someone ranked in the top 60, falling to 0-6 in such matches. Shes also now 0-2 in Grand Slam matches. From wire reports TennisBRIEFS

Associated PressLANDOVER, Md. The nation known for jogo bonito or the beautiful game poses a unique challenge for the U.S. soccer team. While not as significant as a pair of World Cup qualifiers next month, it is a test for the Americans on how far theyve come since Jurgen Klinsmann took over as coach last summer. We understand what Brazil presents. Were going to go for it, Landon Donovan said Tuesday, a day before the Americans play the Selecao in the second of five matches for the U.S. in an 18-day span. A record five-time World Cup champion, Brazil has a youthful roster headed by Neymar, the 20-year-old Santos star coveted by many of Europes top clubs. Looking ahead to the Olympics, which limits teams to mostly players under 23, coach Mano Menezes has a roster that includes AC Milans Alexandre Pato, Tottenhams Sandro, Real Madrids Marcelo and Portos Hulk. Its obviously a great benchmark to see how we can deal with a system like that, Klinsmann said. They have their freely flowing game. After taking a White House tour, the Americans worked out at FedEx Field, where a crowd of more than 56,000 is expected for the match. Clint Dempsey has recovered from a groin injury that caused him to miss Fulhams season finale on May 19, but said hes not fit to play 90 minutes. Still, he could play part of the way and pair with Donovan for the first time under Klinsmann, the former German national team star and coach who replaced Bob Bradley last July 29. Obviously, Im not 90 minutes fit, but Im ready to go in whatever capacity, Dempsey said. Dempsey worked on fitness after training with Jozy Altidore, who joined the team Monday and completed the 23-man roster. He was not released by his club AZ Alkmaar before yesterday, which made me very angry, and it put Jozy in a very difficult position because he had a couple weeks off, Klinsmann said. The guys that came in here on the 15th of May, they trained sometimes three sessions a day, and hes behind them. Brazil is 15-1 against the Americans and has outscored them 31-10. The U.S. victory came in the semifinals of the 1998 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Three years ago, the U.S. took a two-goal lead in the first half of the FIFA Confederations Cup final in South Africa only to lose 3-2. The defeat lingers in the memories of the American players. It still hurts to be so close to winning in a major final, goalkeeper Tim Howard said. But thats life, thats football. And it just shows you how potent they can be.

The Edmonton Oilers were the first in 2006. Its all about winning here, and eliminating distractions and doing what it takes to be successful, said Brodeur, who led the Devils to Cups in 1995, 2000 and 2003. Thats worked for us this year, and really my entire career. For me, to be a part of that is great. To come to the rink every day during my career, knowing we had a chance to win every night is something special. Ive had that my whole career here, and thats been a great ride. While this isnt a glamour series that boasts the likes of a Sidney Crosby, a Steven Stamkos or even a Henrik Lundqvist, it has elements that should help the NHL, and prove entertaining on the ice. To start, this is an EastWest series featuring two of the nations biggest media markets in Los Angeles and the New York metropolitan area.

New Jersey captured the Cup in 1995, 2000 and 2003, with its only finals loss to Colorado in 2001. ... Martin Brodeur has been there for all the finals appearances, and could call it a career at age 40 once this series is over win or lose. Forward Patrik Elias has been in all of New Jerseys trips to the finals, except for the first in 1995. ... Brodeur injured his right shoulder against the Kings on Oct. 13 and missed six games. He didnt earn his first win of the season until Nov. 5. Backup goalie Johan Hedberg earned both of New Jerseys wins over the Kings, with the first coming in relief after Brodeur was injured. Hedberg, who has played only 36 minutes in the playoffs this season, was in for all but one period in the regular-season games against Los Angeles. He stopped 31 Kings shots on Oct. 25 for his 18th NHL shutout. ... Captain Zach Parise leads the Devils with seven playoff goals and is second with 14 points. He led the way in the conference finals against the Rangers when he had six points (3 goals, 3 assists) in the series. This could be the last hurrah for Parise with New Jersey as he is slated to become an unrestricted free agent July 1. ... The Devils finished with 102 regular-season points, but that was only good for fourth best in the Atlantic Division. The finals will be the first series this year in which New Jersey has home-ice advantage.Los Angeles: The Kings have reached the finals for just the second time in team history. Los Angeles is still looking for its first Stanley Cup championship, having lost in five games to Montreal in 1993. ... The Kings have won an NHL-record eight straight road playoff games the first team to do it in one playoff year including three at Phoenix in the Western Conference finals. Los Angeles, which has outscored opponents 30-13 in its road games, has won 10 straight away from home a record for multiple years. The Kings are the first team to take an undefeated road record into the finals since the conference format started in 1994. ... The Kings are the second No. 8 seed to get to the finals under the current postseason format and the first to eliminate the top three seeded teams in the conference in succession. ... Los Angeles has excelled behind Vezina Trophy finalist Jonathan Quick, who is 12-2 with a 1.54 goals-against average and .946 save percentage in the playoffs. He has allowed only 22 goals in 14 games. ... On offense, the Kings are paced by their top line of captain Dustin Brown, Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams. That trio was especially dominant in the second-round win over St. Louis when they combined for six goals and nine assists in the four-game sweep. ... Left wing Simon Gagne could be a Kings wild card, having been medically cleared to play for the first time since a concussion sidelined him Dec. 26. It might take another injury for a lineup spot to open up for Gagne, who made it to the Cup finals two years ago with Philadelphia.Outlook: The Kings show how they got this far in a highly competitive series, but Brodeur and Devils get the best of Quick and capture the Cup in California. Devils in 6. Associated PressNEW YORK After the worst season in NBA history, the Charlotte Bobcats could use a player such as Anthony Davis. Unfortunately for Michael Jordans team, its been a long time since lottery luck shined on the team needing it most. The Bobcats hope the trend ends Wednesday, when they have the best odds of earning the No. 1 pick in next months draft. Charlotte has a 25 percent chance of victory, the reward for its 7-59 record that was the lowest winning percentage (.106) in league history. Davis is the college player of the year after leading Kentucky to the national championship. He is considered the top prize available. Not since 2004, when the Orlando Magic drafted Dwight Howard, has the team with the worst record won the lottery. Minnesota dropped a spot to second last year, when the Cleveland Cavaliers moved up with a pick owed to them by the Los Angeles Clippers and took Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving. The Bobcats, who dropped their final 23 games, appear in much more dire straits than some teams that were able to recover from their lottery letdowns. You could make the case that they dont have, at any position, a top-15 player at their position. So theyre not in the top half of starters at any place on their roster, which is a tough place to be and thats why a guy like Anthony Davis, if they do draft him, hes going to be expected to turn it around. But there are no quick fixes, former NBA coach and current ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy said Tuesday during a conference call. The Washington Wizards have a 19.9 percent chance of picking first, while Cleveland (13.8 percent) and New Orleans (13.7) have the nextbest chances. The lottery is back in New York for the first time since 1993, moving to the Disney/ ABC Times Square Studio from its longtime home in Secaucus, N.J. because the NBA Entertainment facility there no longer houses a television studio. Maybe thats a good omen for the Nets, who are also going from New Jersey to New York. The now Brooklyn Nets have a 7.5 percent chance of moving up from the No. 6 spot to land the top pick, and if they dont end up in the top three their selection goes to Portland as part of this seasons Gerald Wallace trade. The Nets are one of the recent teams that came up empty after a dismal season, settling for the No. 3 pick two years ago after a 70-loss season. Though there are occasional complaints about the format, NBA Commissioner David Stern has said theres been little call to change it. Bobcats hope draft lottery helps Associated PressThe United States Landon Donovan (10) is tripped up by Scotlands Scott Brown, right, during the first half of an exhibition soccer match Saturday, May 26,in Jacksonville, Fla. United States won 5-1. FootballBRIEFS Dolphins to appear on Hard KnocksNEW YORK The Miami Dolphins will appear on Hard Knocks this summer. HBO announced Tuesday the Dolphins would be the newest subject of its popular reality series documenting NFL training camps. The seventh season premieres Aug. 7, with four more one-hour episodes airing on subsequent Tuesdays. Coming off a 6-10 season, Miami has a new coach in Joe Philbin. He said the Dolphins involvement in the show was a football decision made with the blessing of owner Stephen Ross. This season marks the 40th anniversary of the Dolphins undefeated championship squad the last NFL club to win the Super Bowl with a perfect record. Miamis most recent title came a year later, in 1974. Hard Knocks was not produced last year because of the NFL lockout.Jaguars sign No. 2 pick defensive end BranchJACKSONVILLE, Fla. The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed 2012 second-round draft pick Andre Branch, the 38th overall pick in April. The defensive end becomes the first of the teams six draft picks to sign a contract. Branch played for four years at Clemson, where he made 27 starts. He had 17 1/2 sacks, 33 1/2 tackles for loss and 197 overall tackles in his career. Hes the first player from Clemson drafted by the Jaguars. As a senior, Branch was a team captain and led the ACC with 10 1/2 sacks. He also led the team with 17 tackles for loss and had a career-best 85 tackles.SEC coaches want football playoffDESTIN The Southeastern Conference is looking out for No. 1. Maybe even No. 2. Football coaches from the powerhouse and recently expanded league were in unison Tuesday that they want a proposed four-team playoff to include the best teams in the country and not be tied to conference champions. Their solidarity comes as no surprise considering the league has won six consecutive Bowl Championship Series national titles, with the latest one coming when Alabama knocked off LSU after not winning its division or even reaching the league championship game. Florida coach Will Muschamp summed up the SECs stance by saying, In our league, we might have four of the best teams in the country. SEC Commissioner Mike Slive has been a driving force behind a proposed playoff for years, and remains as committed to getting it done this summer. The playoff system could debut as early as the 2014 season, replacing a current No.1 vs. No. 2 BCS championship matchup that has rotated among the Sugar, Orange, Fiesta and Rose Bowl sites. From wire reports Associated PressAfter the worst season in league history, Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan and his team hope their 25 percent chance of earning the No. 1 pick in the lottery Wednesday for next months draft pays off.

The Marlins are 20-8 since May 1, best in the majors, and theyre six games above .500 for the first time since last June 4. Greg Dobbs, pinch-hitting for Sanchez, drove in the run that put Miami ahead to stay with a sacrifice fly in the seventh. Hanley Ramirez hit his eighth homer leading off the eighth. Sanchez (3-3) allowed only three hits and one walk and lowered his ERA to 2.56.

Randall Delgado (3-5) worked into the sixth, allowing three runs, and the Cardinals closed within a run in the seventh on Yadier Molinas third RBI of the night, a run-scoring single. Molina went 4-for-4, including a solo homer. But Craig Kimbrel got the final three outs for his 14th save in 15 chances. Jake Westbrook (4-4) took the loss.Mets 6, Phillies 3NEW YORK Jeremy Hefner earned his first victory in the majors, highlighting the occasion by homering for his first big league hit as the New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-3. The 26-year-old rookie became the first major league pitcher to hit his first homer in his first win since 2002, when Dennis Tankersley did it with San Diego, STATS LLC said. Pinch-hitter Scott Hairston had a tworun homer and newcomer Omar Quintanilla doubled twice and singled to help New York win for the fourth time in five games. After a storm delay of 64 minutes in the eighth inning, the Mets improved to 6-2 against Philadelphia this year.Cubs 5, Padres 3CHICAGO Alfonso Soriano homered, Jeff Samardzija struck out eight in seven innings and the Chicago Cubs beat the San Diego Padres 5-3. Soriano hit a solo homer to center field in the sixth. After going homerless in his first 30 games this season, Soriano has seven home runs in his last 13 games. Samardzija (5-3) allowed eight hits and was one strikeout from tying his career high. He departed after Will Venables RBI triple with no outs in the eighth. Shawn Camp kept the lead intact, getting Carlos Quentin on a fly to left to end the inning. James Russell got the last two outs for his first career save. Quentin homered and had three hits for San Diego. His drive on the first pitch of the fifth was his first home run as a Padre.AMERICAN LEAGUE Royals 8, Indians 2CLEVELAND Mike Moustakas had a career-best four RBIs to help rookie Will Smith get his first major league win, leading the Kansas City Royals to an 8-2 win over the Cleveland Indians.. Moustakas hit a two-run homer off Justin Masterson (2-4) in the first and singled in two runs in the second. That was more than enough support for Smith (1-1), who allowed two runs and four hits in six innings. The left-hander rebounded nicely after being thumped by the New York Yankees in his major league debut last week. Humberto Quintero added two RBIs as the Royals, despite three errors and 12 strikeouts, improved to 15-11 on the road. Masterson, who beat Detroits Justin Verlander in his previous start, allowed seven earned runs in six innings.Blue Jays 8, Orioles 6TORONTO Brett Lawrie had three hits and three RBIs, Ricky Romero won for the seventh time in nine starts against Baltimore and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the slumping Orioles 8-6. The bottom three hitters in Torontos lineup, Lawrie, David Cooper and Rajai Davis, went a combined 8 for 12 with six RBIs and scored four runs. Lawrie also made a spectacular sliding catch in foul territory for the second out of the ninth inning. Adam Jones hit two homers, extending his hitting streak to 20 games, and Chris Davis added a two-run drive but it wasnt enough for Baltimore. The Orioles have lost four straight and seven of nine, but remain tied with Tampa Bay atop the AL East.Red Sox 6, Tigers 3BOSTON David Ortiz homered and hit two doubles, and the Boston Red Sox moved above .500 for the first time this season, tagging Justin Verlander for 10 hits in a 6-3 win over the Detroit Tigers. Verlander (5-3) lost his second straight start since taking a no-hitter into the ninth inning against Pittsburgh on May 18. The reigning American League MVP and Cy Young winner allowed five runs on 10 hits, struck out seven and walked one in six innings. The Red Sox improved to 25-24, finally achieving a winning record after going 05 in games that could have put them above .500.

It used to be that baseball fans would head for the concourse to grab a beer between innings, a cold one as much a part of Americas pastime as hotdogs and Cracker Jack. Now they file up the aisles in search of Belgian-style pale ale. During a period of decline in overall beer consumption, the market for craft brews is rapidly expanding, and the trend is evident at ballparks from coast to coast. Many stadiums offer upward of 60 varieties, everything from Budweiser and Coors Light to Henry Weinhards IPA. In the mood for a porter, with a hint of chocolate and caramel? Ask for a Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald at the Irish pub inside Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Taste trending toward Scottish ale? Order up Erie Brewing Companys Railbender Ale at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, one of the most beer-friendly ballparks in baseball. Looking for something with a cloudy appearance and citrusy flavor? You can find Boulevards Unfiltered Wheat at stands throughout Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. Every market is different, said Bob Sullivan, vice president of sales and marketing for Boulevard Brewing Company. But what youre seeing now is that stadiums are saying, We really need to carry the local beers. People pay a lot of money for their season tickets, and theres some obligation to give them what they want. The big breweries still rule the ballpark Miller Park and Busch Stadium, anyone? They have the unique ability to spend lavishly on marketing: billboards inside and outside the gates, subway cars on the way to Yankee Stadium, television and radio spots during a broadcast. Smaller brewers simply cant compete. Then theres the fact that AnheuserBusch and Major League Baseball renewed their exclusive sponsorship deal in 2010, making Budweiser the leagues official beer. Craft beers are proving a hit in baseball parks

CNN hiring chef for weekend showNEW YORK Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain will begin hosting a new show next year on of all places the news network CNN. The weekend show on food and travel represents a departure for CNN in both content and procedure. CNN usually does its programming in-house, but in this case an outside production company tied to Bourdain will make the series. It will air Sunday nights in prime time and be repeated Saturday nights. Bourdain has done programs on both the Travel Channel and Food Network, and also appeared in the Bravo competition Top Chef. His CNN show will feature cultures around the world through the prism of dining traditions.Musical eyes Broadway spotNEW YORK A musical based on the documentary Hands on a Hardbody will be groping its way to Broadway. Producers said Tuesday the show, with a book by Doug Wright and songs by Trey Anastasio and Amanda Green, will try to make it to New York during the 2012-13 season following a tune-up this spring at the La Jolla Playhouse. The musical is based on the 1997 documentary of the same name about a truck giveaway contest in which participants try to keep their hand on the vehicle the longest.Wedding proposal goes viral onlinePORTLAND, Ore. A video of a Portland mans elaborate, choreographed marriage proposal to his girlfriend has notched 5 million hits on YouTube and raised the bar for unmarried men everywhere. The video, shot last week near the home of Isaac Lambs parents, begins with his brother tucking Lambs girlfriend, Amy Frankel, into the back of an SUV with a pair of headphones. The song Marry You by Bruno Mars starts to play as the SUV drives slowly down the street, and friends and neighbors begin appearing before Frankel, lip-synching and dancing to the music. Eventually, about 60 people are serenading Frankel in the street. Frankel, by the way, said yes. Lambs proposal is at http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v5_v7QrIW0zY Associated PressLOS ANGELES Summer television used to mean reruns. This year its gone to the dogs. Several new shows star dogs and their owners in need of help. CBS has the lone network show in Dogs in the City, starring comic, dog trainer and businessman Justin Silver. Its joined by documentaries on PBS and HBO and a series in the works for the Disney Channel, among others. Each Wednesday at 8 p.m., beginning May 30, Silver will try to help hound and human tackle unsettling problems like joint custody after divorce or dealing with significant others who just moved in. Is man or mutt usually to blame for problems? Its 50-50, he said, but a dogs behavior is shaped by the people in its life. Silver says he wont be the one solving problems, even though he jokes that he speaks dog. Instead, he will provide techniques and experiences so owners can fix their own problems. Its that old adage: Give a man a fish and youll fill his belly. Teach him how to fish and hell never starve. I am teaching you how to fish. But no one learns how to fish perfectly in one hour. It takes constant practice. If intervention is needed, he will call on his own pit bulls, Chiquita and Pacino. I use my dogs as much as possible because the thing that influences dogs most is other balanced dogs, he said. Dogs in the City seems to have a lot in common with The Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan on the National Geographic Channel and Its Me or the Dog with Victoria Stilwell on Animal Planet. Bad Dog! is another Animal Planet show, although it uses videotape to capture misbehavior in a test of sorts to see how far an owners love will stretch. Documentaries airing in May and June explore the rewards and redemption of shelter dogs. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says between 5 million and 7 million companion animals enter shelters every year and between 3 million and 4 million of them are euthanized. Shelter Me, a PBS documentary, is narrated by actress Katherine Heigl and is sponsored by the pet food company co-owned by Ellen DeGeneres. It follows an animal control officer, adoption workers, female inmates who train rescue dogs, and vets who acquire former shelter dogs. Shelter Me is about the lives that are changed when shelter pets are given a second chance, Heigl said. Andrew J. Trotto, an Army veteran from Mission Viejo, was teamed up with Teka, a black Lab rescued from a Wyoming shelter by Freedom Service Dogs in Englewood, Colo. If it wasnt for her, Id be dead right now, Trotto says in the film. I was an evil person. I hated you or wanted to kill you, he said, describing the PTSD demons that haunted him. People say suicide is selfish. But when you are in the zone, youre not thinking about that. The terror in your head drives you insane. She (Teka) will wake me up out of my night terrors. Shelter Me will air across the country in late May and June. HBO will premiere a documentary called One Nation Under Dog: Stories of Fear, Loss & Betrayal on June 18 at 9 p.m. The film looks at Americas obsession with dogs, how far individuals will go for their pets and what it will take for people across the country to treat all dogs humanely. The 73-minute documentary looks at the odds stacked against shelter dogs, spay and neuter education, puppy mills, dog bite victims and how some owners respond when their dog attacks.Summer series Birthday Even if outside factors seem to be slowing down your progress somewhat in the year ahead, know that if you change paths it might make a difference. If thats the case, chances are itll make you feel more satisfied. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Attend to all your responsibilities first thing that way the boss might not mind too much if you take a longer break in the afternoon or even leave a bit early for an appointment. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Avoid an inclination to make a mountain out of any minor mishap that might occur today. Its only when we blow things totally out of proportion that they become a real problem. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) When there is something of material wealth at stake that you hope to acquire, youre likely to find the way to do so by making and following a detailed plan. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Even if you believe a certain objective is easily attainable, dont assume its a foregone conclusion. There may be a surprise or two, so you should keep your ideas flexible. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Its kind to give to those in need, but remember, charity should first begin at home, or at least within your intimate circle of good friends. Help those you personally know before aiding strangers. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Accept others for who they are and not for what you hope to get out of them. If you want support for something important, deal with people realistically and sincerely. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If you want to have harmonious relationships with your colleagues, dont attempt to take all the credit for things that others helped play a role in bringing about. Share the limelight. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Although your plans might be feasible, unless you delegate their implementation to skilled and reliable parties, success could be in question. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Its much smarter to check things out for yourself rather than believe what another says, when you have to know the absolute facts. Dont take any chances. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Teaming up with another for a common cause might hold a special appeal to you. However, if it proves to be taking you nowhere, dont hesitate to split up and go it alone. Aries (March 21-April 19) Its generally a mistake to allow petty politics to become an issue among friends. As a result, you or the person you are endorsing could turn out to be very unpopular. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Your financial indicator could run from high to low and back again. Try to keep a cool head and youll end up on the right side of the ledger.

The ruling by Superior Court Judge Ramona See rejected a motion by Activisions lawyers to dismiss several claims from the case, including fraud, violation of publicity rights and breach of contract. See determined there were genuine disputes about evidence that a jury should consider. No Doubt sued the Santa Monica, Calif.-based video game company in November 2009, claiming the band was never told that players would be able to unlock avatars of the band to perform other artists music. The case cited instances in which players could use singer Gwen Stefani to perform suggestive lyrics from the Rolling Stones hit Honky Tonk Women, or have a virtual version of bassist Tony Kanal sing his bands hit Just a Girl, but with Stefanis voice. The lawsuit claimed the feature turns the band into a virtual karaoke circus act. See rejected one of the bands claims that sought an injunction barring Activision from using band members likenesses to perform other artists work. Activision has claimed the idea of unlocking unadvertised features of a video game has been around since the early days of the industry and the company did nothing wrong. Attorneys expect the case will go to trial later this year.Jury to hear No Doubts claims against game maker CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE TodaysHOROSCOPE Associated PressThis undated image released by CBS shows dog guru Justin Silver, host of the new show Dogs in the City, walking dogs in New York.

As part of the 100th birthday celebration of the Citrus County Historic Courthouse, former students from Inverness Primary School will open a time capsule they assembled in 1987 as part of Renna (Benefield) Jablonskis gifted education class. We were doing a unit on the future, and Hampton Dunn had come to tell us about the past, and the class projected the future, looking forward 25 years, Jablonskis said. For the 75th birthday of the courthouse we put together a time capsule to be opened this year on the 100th birthday. Ashley Wolf Lee, who was in first grade in 1987, said she doesnt remember what they put in the capsule, although she does remember going to the courthouse for the ceremony when the capsule was closed. Ill be as surprised as everyone else to see what I put inside, she said. Lee lives in Orlando. Likewise, Lindy Simmons Davis, now in her mid-30s, doesnt remember what she put in the time capsule back in fourth grade, although Anewspaper records history one day at a time. One hundred years ago, the big story in Citrus County was a new courthouse had been constructed and everyone felt it was so grand that it would stand the test of time. It has. The Chroniclewas a weekly newspaper in 1912 and there wasnt much real news happening. But the opening of a new courthouse was a very big deal. Citrus County was only 25 years old and it was a rough-andtumble place. But the construction of the courthouse made a statement: We are here to stay. Citrus County has had its ups and downs over the past 125 years. There was even a time in the late 1970s and early 1980s when leaders questioned if the county seat of Inverness was a town in decline.

Although not an exhaustive list, here are some notable individuals who have impacted Citrus County: Hampton Dunn, the Floral City native and Florida historian who wrote Back Home: A History of Citrus County, Florida, which serves as a valuable historical resource. Daniel Uncle Alf Tompkins and Frank M. Dampier Sr., Inverness merchants. Dampier built the Orange Hotel, which became the Crown Hotel, now Crown Court. Dampier surveyed and laid out the town of Inverness, served as mayor, police chief and county treasurer. Citrus growers Jean Paul Duvall of Floral City, David Yulee of Homosassa; also groves owned by the Banes, Ferris, Hicks and Van Ness families. Carey Smoak of Floral City had one of the longestrunning building operations in the county. Will Carruth, a Texas millionaire, came to the county in the second half of the 20th century and rescued the floundering Plantation Inn and golf course in Crystal River. He also donated a large tract in Levy County to the Sheriffs Youth Ranch for underprivileged and troubled youths. Ed Tolle of Crystal River Realtor, businessman, county property appraiser and city councilman, a force in city and county business and politics. George H.

Expires 6/15/12 Celebration Special TERMITE & PEST CONTROL 2011 2011 2011 2011 Elvis presence still felt NANCYKENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS He was the most famous hip-swiveling singing movie star to come to town. More than 50 years later, the memory of Elvis Presleys visit to Citrus County and his presence in Citrus Countys historic courthouse while filming the movie Follow That Dream during the summer of 1961 still lives. People still call the historic courthouse asking about Elvis, said Kathy TurnerThompson, Citrus County historical resource officer. A few years ago, an entire family from Hannover, Germany, came to Inverness just to see where the movie was filmed. Local places around the county used in the movie include the Bird Creek bridge on County Road 40 (Follow That Dream Parkway) in Inglis, and also the small bridge on Kings Bay Drive in Crystal River seen in the opening credits. Elvis stayed at the Port Paradise Motel in Crystal River and kept his boat in the nearby marina. And, of course, the upstairs courtroom in the historic courthouse played a featured role as the location where Elvis, as Toby Kwimper, gave an impassioned testimony that is said to have brought tears to onlookers eyes. Turner-Thompson said that when the Citrus County Historical Society was applying for grants for the restoration of the 1912 building, having had the movie made there proved important because the movie had some of the few historic images of what the courtroom originally looked like. After obtaining permission from MGM Home Studios, they took still photographs of the video, which they submitted as photographic documentation. In the movie, the opening scene shows a jalopy crossing a long bridge. Although the bridge, the Courtney Campbell Causeway in Tampa, isnt a part of Citrus County, two of the kids inside the car were local boys, Wendell Daniel and Lloyd Bertine. Bertine, now the Rev. Lloyd Bertine, pastor of Gulf to Lake Church in Crystal River, was 10 years old when he and his friend Wendell were chosen as stand-ins for twin brothers Gavin and Robin Koon, who played Eddy and Teddy Bascombe. In 2010, Bertine told the Chronicle, The casting crew came to our Little League practice and lined us up. They picked me and Wendell, I guess because of our height and our hair. Bertine said one day Elvis was at the courthouse just sitting and started singing Its Now or Never and Bertine joined in and sang with him. However, what he really liked was playing football with the crooner. Two years ago, local history buff Wendy Stillwell researched and developed a play, When Elvis Came to Town, about the making of Follow That Dream and its Citrus County connection. In 2011, Marcus Held, a local Elvis tribute artist nicknamed the Swiss Elvis, played Elvis and in the 2012 version, the King was played by Ted Torres, who won 2011 Best Vocals in Las Vegas on the Elvis Stage and was named in the 2011 Worlds Ultimate Elvis Contest Top 5. Inside the historic courthouse, upstairs in the courtroom, a life-size photo cutout of Elvis Presley watches over the room. Fiftyone years after he walked the courthouse steps and 34 years since his death in 1977, his presence is still felt. Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2927. NANCYKENNEDY Staff WriterIt was a Thursday evening, Sept. 30, 1937. Twenty-year-old Belle Rowe and 21-year-old Curtis King had driven from Sumter County to Inverness to get married. He delivered telegrams on his bicycle and Belle had seen him around town in Wildwood. They met at a party. The reason we went to Inverness was because it was night and we heard there was a judge in Citrus County who would marry you at night, Mrs. King said. Now 95, the widowed Mrs. King lives in Sumterville. We had double-dated with another couple and went with them when they got married, three months before we got married. The same couple returned to Inverness with the Kings as their witnesses. The courthouse itself was closed, but it was common knowledge that if a young couple knocked on Judge E.C. Mays door after hours, if he was home he would invite them in and marry them. We didnt tell my dad, but we told my mom, Mrs. King said. Afterward, we had dinner out with our friends and then we went back to my husbands mom and dads house. We stayed there three months before we got an apartment in Wildwood. She said the marriage license cost $6. We didnt get married at the courthouse in Inverness, but my grandmother did, Mrs. King said. She got married at 14 she lived at Stage Pond. Although Charles and Ida Brooks are long separated, Mrs. Brooks still recalls 51 years ago when they traveled from Crystal River to the now-historic courthouse in Inverness to get married. We went to high school in Inverness, Booker T. Washington School, she said. They met riding the school bus together. She was 19 when they married on May 8, 1961. We were downstairs in somebodys office, she said. I wore a white dress. It was just he and I and maybe my dad, but no bridesmaids, no best man. Were still married, but weve been separated since 1981. Friday, June 15, 1990, was a hot, sticky day. Joan Workman had come to Citrus County from Ohio to marry John Fitch. They met in Cleveland when she worked in classified ads at thePlain Dealernewspaper and he came in to place an ad to sell his car. His wife, also named Joan, had died. They had lived in Inverness at the end of Turner Camp Road, but came back to Ohio. They had been married seven years before the first Joan died. Fitch returned to Inverness and after eight years of being alone, he asked Joan to marry him. My brother came down from Vegas, Mrs. Fitch, 75, said. I wore a nice dress, but not a wedding gown. Afterwards, we changed our clothes and went to the water park in Ocala. It was hot out that day, Mr. Fitch, 78, recalled. Her brother had this sharp suit on and he wouldnt take it off, but finally he did. They married at the historic courthouse. It was fast and convenient and didnt cost very much, Mrs. Fitch said. They were married by Eleanor W. Wilson, deputy clerk of courts. Mrs. Fitch returned to Ohio to finish out a job before moving back to Inverness to rejoin her new husband and start a new job at the Chronicle in classified ads. Between the two of them, the couple has nine children, 12 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. They will be married 22 years this June.

Editors note: In 1998, former Chronicle columnist Steve Arthur wrote about the history of Citrus becoming a separate county. The following is an excerpt. Newcomers to this county cant be expected to understand the significance of the courthouse to the town of Inverness and to the soul of this county, so to give you some insight, sit back and get whisked back in time to June 2, 1887. It all started on that date, the birth date of this county. That is the day Gov. E.A. Perry signed into law a measure passed by the Legislature to slice Hernando County into three parts to create Citrus and Pasco and Hernando Counties, wrote author and journalist Hampton Dunn in his marvelous book Back Home, a History of Citrus County Florida. The legislation spelled out that the town of Mannfield would be the temporary county seat of Citrus County for two years. It was further stipulated that it could be changed by a vote of the registered voters. Mannfield, about four miles south of Lecanto, sat at the geographical center of the new county. Dont ask me to locate it for you because I can only guess where it was. Anyway, Dunn went on to write: The establishment of the temporary courthouse in September, 1887, was in the Moffat house in Mannfield ... in 1891, the temporary courthouse was moved to the Gaffney house in Mannfield, with a rental of $19 a month. Austin S. Mann, who named Mannfield after himself, wanted the courthouse to stay right where it was. He owned a lot of land in the area and stood to gain. He was an interesting character who was elected state senator for a time. He is described as a populist and a free-thinker with big timber and land interests who had big dreams for his investments in the county. As a senator, he had worked with the railroad people to have the tracks come through his town, but when phosphate was discovered on the east side of the county, the situation changed. Mining interests wanted the tracks to follow the vein of phosphate, which extended down from Holder through Inverness and Floral City and points south. Another big financial interest in the county at the time, the Florida Orange, Canal and Transit Co., which had plans to develop transportation on the Tsala Apopka lakes and the Withlacoochee River out to the Gulf of Mexico, also naturally favored the east side. So there were two factions wanting to place the county seat: the Manns and the anti-Manns. According to Dunn, between 1889 and 1890 many elections were held to establish the county site. Each election failed due to the shortage of the majority votes. Finally, the voters did approve a move to Inverness in an election on May 4, 1891. The vote was 267 for Inverness, 258 for Lecanto, and one vote for Gulf Junction. (Another ghost town which has since been mislaid.) Disputing the election and fearing that the Inverness supporters would attempt to move the courthouse, members of the Mann faction decided to find a judge to slap an injunction on the Inverness faction. So a pro-Mann lawyer set off on horseback to Dade City to catch a circuit judge who was supposed to be there. The unidentified lawyer caught up with the visiting judge at the railroad depot, just boarding the train back to Tampa. Jumping on the train, the lawyer convinced the judge to sign an injunction, but by then they were both chugging off to Tampa. The lawyer rode the train to Tampa and then rode it back north the next day, but by the time he got to Mannfield, it was too late.C4WEDNESDAY, MAY30, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEANNIVERSARYSPECIAL 000BL2T Ace Hardware 352-726-8811 465 E.

Birth of a county NANCYKENNEDY Staff WriterAt one time, Citrus County didnt exist. The area we now call home was a bunch of orange trees, wide open spaces where cattle grazed, phosphate mines and sandy, dirt trails. We were part of a larger county, Hernando. In the late 1880s, some people around here were starting to talk about seceding from Hernando, according to Back Home, the historical reference book written by the late Hampton Dunn. Mainly, people were complaining about the difficulty of traveling all the way to the county seat in Brooksville the roads were just sand trails. On June 2, 1887, Citrus County was born after thenGov. E.A. Perry signed a measure passed by the state Legislature, slicing Hernando County into three separate counties Hernando, Pasco and Citrus. It defined Citrus Countys borders from the Withlacoochee River to the Gulf of Mexico, 396,800 acres in all, part of the First Congressional District. Its now the Fifth Congressional District. Back in 1887, Citrus County was represented by Congressman R.H.M. Davidson, of Quincy. Today, we are represented by Rep. Richard Nugent, RBrooksville. The bill creating Citrus as a separate county reportedly sailed through both houses of the Legislature, opposed only by two senators. Gov. Perry signed it four hours after the bill passed, naming the currently nonexistent town of Mannfield as the temporary county seat. The first Board of County Commissioners met at the Mannfield Church in August 1887. At that time, Dunn wrote, Crystal River was a metropolis with 200 people. Homosassa had nine people. Mannfield, located at the geographical center of the county, had roughly 50 families about 250 people. Tompkinsville, now Inverness, had about 30 people. Floral City boasted of more than 300 people and Hernando had about 30. Today, 125 years later, more than 140,000 call Citrus County home. Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2927. BRIAN LaPETER/Chronicle fileHistorian John Grannan explores the only sign of a town left in Mannfield a cemetery. Citrus was a part of Hernando County until 1887, when the land was divided into three counties Before Inverness became the county seat, the base of government was in the town formerly known as Mannfield. Established: 1884 by citizens of 16 states, mainly from Indiana. Located: Geographical center of the county in the Withlacoochee State Forest miles from the Homosassa River and situated 250 miles southeast of Tallahassee and 17 1/2 miles north of Brooksville, as recorded in Back Home by Hampton Dunn. Named for: State Sen. A.S. Mann, who moved to Citrus County in the 1870s, built a home in Crystal River and planted a large orange grove. Boasted of: Hotel, town square, courthouse, church and schoolhouse, stores and businesses. Population: Between 200 to 250. Known as: The Hill City Among the Hills, as reported in The Citrus County Star (Vol. I No. 2), Jan. 21, 1888. Possible reason it failed as permanent county seat: A proposed railroad route from Dunnellon to the center of the county and through Mannfield was moved eastward toward Floral City after the discovery of phosphate outside Dunnellon in 1889. Lost county seat: May 4, 1891. In an election, Inverness won, but not by much. Mannfield became: Federal government property in the 1930s when the government bought out homesteaders under President Franklin Delano Roosevelts New Deal during the Great Depression. The plan was to reforest the area. Later that land was transferred to the state. Today: The town is gone, its wooden structures decayed and destroyed. All that remains is a small cemetery off Trail 17 in the Withlacoochee State Forest.

I hope we would protect our lakes and rivers, which are so important to our quality of life here. Joe Brannen, Brannen Banks vice chairman and Inverness nativePeople here always speak to you on the street, and if you wave they most often wave back. I hope in 100 years Citrus County will still have that same small-town nature. Brown and Roger Carol Dumas, Crystal River nativesI love the healthy balance in Citrus County of growth and historic preservation and how well our young people and seniors interact so respectfully with each other. I hope these qualities are around for a long, long time! I think thats why people who come to Citrus County stay in Citrus County. Patrick Thomas, Inverness native and voter outreach coordinator for Supervisor of Elections OfficeI think people will remember what a close community we are. We have a slower lifestyle, a slower pace here, and people still talk to each other. We are a people-friendly community! People are supportive of others less fortunate. Yes, we have business here, but even our businesses support others. Winn Webb, County Commission chairman and Citrus County nativeCitrus County has always been a different type of rural community, with our rolling hills, our lakes and rivers as well as the gulf thats what attracts people to come here. I hope we never lose that sense of this being a place to relax and enjoy nature. I also hope that 100 years from now people will remember and appreciate how in this 100 years we saved our courthouse and saved a rural way of life. State Sen. Charles Dean, Inverness nativeI grew up out in the country at Red Level, and it was a wonderful place. Citrus County is a wonderful place, so peaceful. In 100 years, I hope its still wonderful. I also hope in 100 years the rivers will be clear again. Wilma MacRae, longtime Homosassa residentIn 100 years I hope Citrus County will be better than ever and that Crystal River will be a thriving business community. Ed Tolle, former county property appraiser, Crystal River City Council member and Crystal River native MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleWhile Citrus Countys farming industry isnt as strong as it was decades ago, numerous working farms still exist. Cattle, citrus and dairy farms are examples of the farming industry that thrive in the county. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleCitrus County has emerged as one of the most popular destinations for manatee enthusiasts to get an up-close, personal experience with the endangered marine mammals. County blessed to be a people-friendly community Columnist looks back at printed history of county Editors note: The following is a column written by John Grannan, Citrus County Historical Society president. It first appeared in the At Home quarterly newsletter and is being reprinted with Grannans permission. JOHNGRANNAN Special to the ChronicleWe are very fortunate that the Citrus County Historical Society has in its collection so many copies of old Citrus County Chronicles. Former Chronicleowner David Arthurs donated many of the newspapers dating back to the 1890s. When you read one of those newspapers, it is like taking a trip back in time and like the old TV show, You Are There. A look at theChroniclesfrom the month of January in 1912 gives the reader a slice of life as it was 100 years ago. Like most newspapers of that time, the front pages feature a large advertisement along with smaller ads and some news stories from other parts of the country and the world. There was also a serialization of a popular novel Miss Minerva and William Green Hill by Frances Boyd Calhoun. Coincidentally, when I was in fifth grade more than 50 years ago, my teacher at Crystal River Elementary read the whole book aloud to the class. Inside on Pages 2 and 3 were more ads and local news with snippets of information about individuals and businesses, plus articles from other state newspapers. Page 4 was usually legal notices and even more advertisements. The most intriguing ad was for Hair Bought, Sold and Exchanged. We have now on hand a large assortment of Human Hair, switches and would be pleased to have you come in and see our beautiful line. There were two timely references to the building of the new courthouse, which would begin in 1912. Some citizens had been opposed to it but the county commissioners decided to move forward with their plans. The old courthouse is being moved this week to make room for the new structure. The building was not even 20 years old but was a sentimental favorite of some. It was moved to the north of the square by the ReadParker Construction Company for $875. The removal of the trees upset many residents. Monday morning the work of clearing the old courthouse grounds of the beautiful shade trees began, to make room for the new and modern structure. Hundreds of our people regret the removal of the beautiful shade trees, which have so long nestled around our county building, and many a man expressed regret over the destruction. Whatever may be the result, we will always cherish remembrances of the past, and the old courthouse will ever be in our memory. See GRANNAN / Page C6

Who knows? I cant wait, she said. Davis teaches sixth grade language arts at a middle school in Hillsborough County and will be among the curious who will be eager to see whats in the time capsule. Jablonskis said her 1987 students had talked about burying the capsule but opted instead to store it at the courthouses museum, which was just being created about that time. We checked on it a year ago to see if it was still here and made it through all the transitions of moving around during the renovations, she said. On Friday, June 1, some of the former students will be having a mini-reunion at the McLeod House. In addition to opening the 1987 capsule, current students from Inverness Primary and Pleasant Grove Elementary schools are putting together their own time capsule to be opened 25 years from now in 2037. Included in the capsule: a school yearbook, copies of utilities and cell phone bills, videos from the schools morning show, a list of the top 10 things they like to do, photos of local landmarks and hand-drawn self-portraits and prophesies of the careers the students think they will have in 25 years. Take note baseball fans Mikey McSharry, 9, predicts he will be a major league baseball player. Brileyann Eldridge, also 9, thinks she will be a storm chaser. Students will be displaying a living timeline at the 100year birthday event on June 2 at the historic courthouse as they hold posters theyve made illustrating areas of communication, transportation, fashion and technology from 1912 to 2037 25 years into the future. Some things they predict in 2037: cup-holding robots, electronic nail clippers and self-propelled shopping carts. Afterward, the timelines will be donated to the historic museum. CAPSULEContinued from Page C1 courthouse building was almost sacrificed in the name of progress as the state wanted to blast a four-lane U.S. 41 right through the middle of Inverness. Some misguided souls even wanted to move the county seat back to Lecanto. Calmer minds prevailed and the respect for our historic accomplishments grew out of that debate. Today our now-old courthouse is a landmark that produces great pride. A bustling city has once again grown around the downtown and people everywhere applaud the comfortable small-town atmosphere. Citrus County itself has matured over those 125 years. New communities have blossomed and tens of thousands of retirees have flocked to our small towns to enjoy the Florida sunshine. At the heart of Citrus County, our old courthouse remains strong. It is a symbol of our accomplishments and the heart of our heritage. We at the Chronicle are proud to celebrate these important birthdays of our county and the courthouse. Together they represent all that is good in the place we call home.Gerry Mulligan is publisher of the Citrus County Chronicle.

It was gone. The courthouse has been moved. The Chronicle, which was here from the beginning, recorded the details from the memories J.C. Priest, son of then-sheriff Jim Priest: It appeared that the antiManns decided it was safer to act before an injunction could be served, so, while the lawyer slept in Tampa they took horses and wagons and moved everything movable and that had anything to do with the county government and by 8 oclock the next morning Inverness was the official county seat, which it still is. I was five years old and I helped move the courthouse, Priest recalled. He said he helped push the wagons up the sand hill and got a fine free ride down the hill when the mules went at a gallop. There were only two teams to move the whole courthouse. There was a bit of a hitch, though. The county clerk, Captain W.C. Zimmerman, refused to move out of his office because he was against the move 100 percent. The sheriff asked the attorneys for Inverness what to do. The attorneys advised the sheriff to move the man, so thats what they did, by lifting the fellow still sitting in his chair, and placing it securely in a wagon. The sheriff ordered that the captain was not to be allowed out of his chair until they got to Inverness ... And when they got Zimmerman in his room in the courthouse they got him to go to the front door and declare the Citrus County courthouse legally moved to Inverness. That was (more than) a century ago and since then the town of Inverness has grown up around succeeding courthouses. The courthouse is in many ways the cultural and historical heart of this county and, just like our own hearts, it is not located in the center. MANNFIELDContinued from Page C4 The trees would be replaced by new ones once the new building was completed, and many years later people would also lament their passing when they were removed for either street widening or the restoration of the old courthouse. With 1912 being an election year, politics was on the mind of the editor, George Butler, who was sounding the alarm about the threat of a republican takeover. Not since the administration of George Drew, when Radicalism and carpetbaggism was squelched, have the Republicans put in such a bold front as this year. The only way to do is to sit down on every last mothers son of them. No republican holding office in the South is a friend to the South, and it becomes necessary to educate our people to this line of belief. Personally, we have some friends in the Republican Party, but politically, damn em. Several comments were made about local republicans holding federal offices including the Inverness postmaster, who was evidently appointed by President Taft. After the Florida Supreme Court ruled in 1911 that women could hold public office, even though they couldnt vote, the editor encouraged male voters to support women in holding elected offices in the county and city. He didnt mention them being in the Legislature or Congress, however. He wrote that during the next decade, we shall expect to see women occupying many of those important offices, nor shall we expect to see the public service suffer the least injury by this extremely radical change. Indeed in many instances we shall expect to see it improve immensely. The Ocala Bannerwas the source of this interesting snippet: Along with Marion, the counties of Alachua, Citrus, Gadsden, Hernando, Jefferson, Leon, Madison, Nassau and Putnam, have a larger negro than white population. Before the late unpleasantness, planters with slaves settled or were supposed to settle in counties where the lands were supposed to be the richest. It was surprising to see Citrus included in this list which was mostly the counties in North Florida known as the Black Belt because of their large plantations. The reason for Citrus having such a high black population was due to the extensive phosphate mining taking place in the county at that time, with the majority of the workers being black men. Another interesting aspect was the reference to the late unpleasantness, referring of course to the Civil War. I had heard the phrase recent unpleasantness being used in a humorous manner, but in 1912, the war was still a bitter memory for some and treated as a serious matter. There was also a notice about a reunion of Confederate veterans. The beginning of the Rock Crusher mine is also documented with a reference to the spur line from the existing line to Homosassa. A railroad is being built from the navigable waters of Crystal River, 4 1/2 miles southeast to Lees Mount, a huge mound of solid rock suitable for concrete or jetty work construction on the entire west coast. The mound or ledge has long been one of the places of interest in that section. It is the highest point in the county and from its summit with a pair of glasses, vessels can be seen out in the Gulf beyond the outer bars. The supply of rock is sufficient for years. One hundred men are at work on the railroad and 50 more are wanted. The editor of the paper realized the importance of visitors to the county, probably hoping that some of them would become permanent residents. It is next to impossible for us to get the names of visitors to Inverness, especially during the winter season, and we urgently urge our readers to send or give us the names of such visitors. TheChroniclewill not knowingly slight anyone. I wonder even if they were Republicans. As one can see from this look at the past, there have been many changes in our culture and societal norms. In some ways the times have certainly changed but in others, it seems to me that we are not that different from the Citrus County residents of 100 years ago.

This summer, people will get the chance to see a rare event. On June 5 and 6, we will be able to see the planet Venus sail between the Earth and the sun. This crossing is called the transit of Venus. The Mini Page talked with experts from NASA to learn more about this exciting event. Warning! Even though we will be able to see Venus moving across the sun, we will need to wear special eclipse glasses to do so. Staring at the sun without protective glasses can blind us. Sunglasses do not offer enough protection.In the early 1990s, the Magellan spacecraft used radar to take pictures of Venus surface. Before, Venus heavy cloud cover had prevented us from seeing the planet itself.Between the Earth and the SunVenus Passes By Planet crossing In astronomy, a transit is when a body in space passes between two other bodies. From Earth, we can see only two planets, Mercury and Venus, cross between us and the sun. From Earth, we see 13 to 14 transits of Mercury every century. Because it is a much smaller planet than Venus, it is harder to see these transits. Transits of Venus are much more rare. We are able to see only two every 100 to 121 years. Transits of Venus always come in pairs. There are eight years between each of these paired transits. The last transit of Venus was in 2004. There were none at all in the 20th century. The last transits were in the 1800s. After this June, more than a century will pass before the next pair of Venus transits. Chance of a lifetime When the last transit of Venus occurred in 2004, it was the first time anyone alive had ever seen one. After the transit this June, few people now alive will ever see another one. The next pair of transits of Venus will be in 2117 and 2125. photo courtesy NASA/LMSALOn June 8, 2004, NASAs TRACE telescope took this rare shot of Venus crossing in front of the sun. This picture gives us a good idea of the size of the sun compared to Venus, or to the Earth. Earth and Venus are roughly the same size. This picture was shot with a special ultraviolet filter. photo by Brocken InagloryAlthough Venus is actually a planet, it looks like the brightest star in the night sky. Sometimes we can see Venus around sunset, and we call it the evening star. At other times, we see it just before sunrise.

To his dismay, he did not realize it would not be visible from his home in discovered there would be a second seeing that one because the sky was so cloudy. At the last minute, the clouds opened, and they became the first people to watch a transit of Venus in a scientific manner.Excitement builds Astronomers soon realized that by timing when the transit began and ended from different places on Earth, they could use those findings, and math, to figure out the size of the solar system. By the 1700s, when the next transits were due, astronomers all over the world were filled with excitement. Major scientific expeditions were launched to measure the transit. Keeping hope alive Astronomers waited 100 years for the next transits of Venus. By 1882, the transit of Venus was the top headline in papers all over the world. Once more, scientists braved dangers and hardships to view the transits. This time, they were able to figure out that the Earth was about This was nearly as exciting a discovery as the moon landing was less than a century later. It captured the imagination of the whole world.Seeking answers The transits of Venus in 1761 and first time, scientists from all over the world joined forces to solve a mystery. Astronomers journeyed to the far corners of the Earth to observe the transits. These astronomers set off to mountaintops and distant islands. They had no telegraphs or phones. They didnt even have accurate clocks to record the transit times. Although they did not have enough technology in the 1700s to take accurate measurements, they did learn a lot. A Russian astronomer saw a kind of glow around Venus and realized it might have an atmosphere. People got excited. They thought Venus might be a jungle planet inhabited by alien beings. art by J. W.

ENTERTAINMENTCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, MAY30, 2012 C9 PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.After North had opened one spade and South had responded two hearts, North rebid two spades. This suggested a sixth spade, but if his hand was unsuitable for two no-trump or three of a minor, he would have rebid two spades with a good five-card suit. Now South was in a quandary. He might have rebid three clubs (over which North would probably have chosen three notrump) or raised to four spades. But he took control by jumping to three notrump, hoping to run the spade suit. Four spades would probably have made without much difficulty, even if declarer had lost a trump trick. Say East leads the heart five. North wins, plays a spade to the king and a spade to his jack. East wins and leads his second heart: eight, 10, ruff. North draws the missing trump and plays a club to dummys king. When that wins, he cashes the heart king, ruffs out Wests heart queen, leads a diamond to the ace, and takes two discards on the high hearts to collect five spades, three hearts, one diamond and one club. Three no-trump was much tougher. I might have led the diamond two from that West hand, but he chose the heart six, the most effective start. If South had played a spade to his king, followed by a spade to the jack, he would have had to read the position to get home. But declarer unerringly won the second spade with dummys ace to drop the queen! Now he had an easy overtrick. I explained the percentages, but it was hard to argue with success.

When she was merely 4 months old, my son-in-law would toss her up in the air and then catch her. Her head was completely unsupported. When she was 5 months old and the temperature outside was in the 40s and rainy, he refused to put a coat on her. When she was 6 months old, he put her on his shoulders and bounced her around the grocery instead of securing her in the car seat. When she was 11 months old, he admitted that he had tossed her on their bed so she would bounce. Last Sunday, I was gently pushing her in a swing when he said, Youre not swinging her high enough, and proceeded to push her aggressively and to a point where I felt it was unsafe for a child her age. My daughter has told me that he does things that make her heart stop. I believe he enjoys the attention and likes to upset my daughter. I consider him to be somewhat unbalanced. Would this be considered child endangerment? I had composed a letter to her pediatrician, but friends and family urged me not to send it for fear that child protective services will be called. Yet, if I know these things and do nothing, Im as guilty as he is. I dont want to lose my granddaughter or my daughter. Am I overreacting? Conc erned G randma D ear G randma : Your son-in-laws behavior is questionable, but we dont believe its enough to call CPS. The problem is, he doesnt seem to understand the boundaries of acceptable risk. First talk to your daughter. She should make it clear to her husband that he must be more careful. Please tell her also to discuss this with her pediatrician, and you should not hesitate to let the doctor know about your concerns. Perhaps a professional can talk some sense into her husband before he unintentionally causes irreparable harm. D ear Annie: My husband recently passed away. My sisters and one of my closest friends never particularly liked him, so now they are all suddenly my best friends. The biggest problem is my friend Fran, who thinks she knows everything about my life and wont allow me to make any decisions of my own. Trying to assert myself around her is mentally exhausting. She wants to know about my budget, what Im cooking for dinner, what Im doing for the weekend. Every weekend. I was a social bug until I lost my husband. Now, not so much. I attend church, go to work and go home. I have two teenagers who miss their father terribly. I think Im still grieving and do not want anyones help if it has to be so suffocating. Does that make sense at all? Stressing in K ansas D ear K ansas: Your response to this smothering attention is perfectly natural. You are indeed still grieving, and Frans oppressive concern is provoking some resentment, not least because she did not get along with your husband. Tell Fran you need her to back off for a while, and then please consider some grief counseling. Your doctor or the local hospital can refer you. D ear Annie: I am sure D.B. M.D, Loma Linda, Calif. meant well to inform us how to better entice our men and put out more. I work in a salon, and we talk about sex in detail. The women with loving husbands who are shown respect are happy to give their men plenty of sexual activity. The men who arent getting the sex life they want are probably not as kind, loving, respectful or attentive to their women. Please help men understand that women like sex to start in the kitchen or living room, an hour before it actually happens in the bedroom. And if it does, sex will be enjoyed by both partners forlonger than 12 minutes. W.B.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Meeting Notices 761-0530 WCRN PUBLIC NOTICE IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER Recent Tests Indicated Coliform Bacteria in the Citrus Springs and Pine Ridge Water System Recent water test results indicated that the Citrus Springs/Pine Ridge water system violated a drinking water standard. Although this incident was not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what was done to correct the situation. The Citrus County Utilities Division routinely monitors County owned and operated drinking water systems for contaminants, including the Citrus Springs/Pine Ridge system. In accordance with our permit requirements, fifteen routine distribution samples were taken for the month of April, 2012 to test for the presence of coliform bacteria. Two out of the fifteenroutine samples showed the presence of total coliform bacteria. The standard is that no more than one sample per month or 5 percent of the total samples may fail. What should I do? You Do Not Need To Do Anything. You do not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions. However, if you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor. If you have a severely compromised immune system, have an infant, are pregnant, or are elderly, you may be at increased risk and should seek advice from your health care providers about drinking this water. General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by microbes are available from EPAs Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. What does this mean? This is not an emergency. If it had been you would have been notified within 24 hours. Total coliform bacteria are generally not harmful themselves. *Coliforms are bacteria which are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other, potentially-harmful, bacteria may be present. Coliforms were found in more samples than allowed and this was a warning of potential problems.* Usually, coliforms are a sign that there could be a problem with the systems treatment or distribution system (pipes). Whenever we detect coliform bacteria in any sample, we do follow-up testing to see if other bacteria of greater concern, such as fecal coliform or E. coli, are present. We did not find any of these bacteria in our subsequent testing. What is being done? As required by the Environmental Protection Agencies (EPAs) Ground Water Rule, repeat samples were collected at the detected sites, plus one sample upstream and one sample downstream of the detected site. These samples were collected on April 17th, 2012. There were no traces of total coliform bacteria in any of the repeated samples. Since then, we have performed routine sampling for the month of May on all seven drinking water wells plus fifteen samples throughout the distribution system. Coliform bacteria were not detected in any of the samples. The Citrus County Department of Water Resources has conducted a thorough investigation to determine the source of the contamination and believe that no actual problem existed within the water distribution system. Our investigation indicates that the test samples were either contaminated during the process of being transported to the laboratory, or during the analysis of the actual sample within the laboratory. Thus, there was never any real threat to your drinking water For more information, please contact Gary Loggins, Citrus County Utilities Operations Manager, Department of Water Resources at 352-527-7650 or write to Citrus County Utilities at 1300 S Lecanto Highway, Lecanto FL, 34461.
