SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has rejected three petitions seeking a tweak of its charter with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. In an opinion signed and dated May 30 by FWCs Executive Director Nick Wiley, the bids by the citizens group Save Crystal River Inc., the city of Crystal River and the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners ask FWC to, among other things, revise its cooperative agreement with USFWS to include: Amending the proposed rule, titled cooperation, as follows: It is understood that FWC and or Florida law enforcement authorities are not authorized to enforce federal rules in federal manatee refuges, including activities which have been permitted in accordance with 68A 27.007 F.A.C.; Workforce board ranks in states top 10 County staff meets with state about Medicaid bill C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterLECANTO County staff began the process Thursday to settle a dispute about how much the county owes the state for Medicaid-paid medical treatment. Representatives from the states Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) met with Citrus County Commissioner Rebecca Bays, County Administrator Brad Thorpe and County Attorney Richard Wesch, in addition to other county staff, to review disputed medical billings. The need for the meeting arose from the passage in the Florida Legislature earlier this year of the Medicaid Cost Shift Bill. Under the new law, all 67 Florida counties are required to pay nearly $300 million in what the state has defined as past-due billing for Medicaid, the health care program for low-income and disabled patients. The counties are disputing most of the past-due amounts because of a flawed state system of billing. According to the counties, they are being billed as far back as 2001 for invoices that already have been paid or that are for patients who do not live in their counties, among other reasons. The new law would enforce the payment of the disputed bills through the withholding of each countys share of the state sales tax until the past-due amounts were satisfied. The withholding of sales tax funds from the counties would begin in October. Citrus Countys past-due amount is in dispute, and the purpose of S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterWhen Lisa McKeever moved to Crystal River from Virginia 18 months ago, not only did she take a severe pay cut, but the commute to her new job at the University of Florida in Gainesville was wreaking havoc on her personal life and pocketbook. The daily three-hour roundtrip commute quickly became a burden and, sadly, she said, she didnt even like the job she had. She tried looking for a new job on her own, but being new to the area, McKeever said she didnt know where to look for the jobs and finding the time and energy to peruse the Internet or the classified section of the newspaper was difficult. Eventually, she stumbled upon EmployFlorida.com, the website for Employ Florida Marketplace, which links all of Floridas state and local workforce services and resources. On the website, McKeever said she was able to see what was out See MEDICAID / Page A9 See BOARD / Page A9 See FWC / Page A4 Community marks 125 years as Citrus County S HEMIR W ILES Staff Writer INVERNESS S tanding on the steps of the Citrus County Historic Courthouse on Saturday morning, Citrus County Historical Society President John Grannan said the day was a culmination of dreams. From the pioneer families who traversed the wild Florida terrain to settle in the area that in 1887 would become Citrus County to the building of a permanent courthouse in the county seat in 1912, Grannan called the celebration of the 100th birthday of the courthouse and the 125th birthday of the county a remembrance of visions that come true. He spoke candidly about the work put in by many individuals in the community like Ron and Beverly Drinkhouse, Allen and Marcia Beasley and the Rev. James Hoge, who were all instrumental in the restoration and preservation of the Old Courthouse. Grannan also gave special recognition to Ethel Winn, a longtime Citrus County resident and educator who, Grannan quipped, was born the same year the courthouse was built. And they both still look good, he added. Several people who once worked in the courthouse, such as County Judge Mark Yerman, former county commissioner Wilbur Langley, former county tax collector Norine Gilstrap and former state Sen. Karen Thurman also attended Saturdays event. Commission Chairman Winn Webb stated it was an honor and a privilege to attend the birthday celebration. Times have changed, he said, and for people to know how things once were in the community, longtime residents need to share the stories not written in the history books. Webb shared many of his recollections and just how much the courthouse meant to him, such as the fact his father purchased the farm he grew up on in Floral City back in 1937 during a land auction on the steps of the courthouse. DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Jason Berger was one of the 19 students who put items in a time capsule in 1987. Renna Jablonskis placed the capsule with her students in the courthouse. Berger, left, shows a toy space shuttle his brother had placed in the capsule to his parents, Terry, center, and Lannie. Berger buried a safety patrol badge he said belonged to his brother.

Two longtime Citrus County residents, Ethel Winn and the Rev. James Hoge, attended thecelebration of the 100th birthday of the courthouse and the 125th birthday of Citrus County. Winn and Hoge were instrumental in the education and spiritual richness of the county. Citrus County Judge Mark Yerman was the last county judge to sit on the bench in the historic courthouse. He was forced to evacuate the courtroom after the roof collapsed. PONY PARTY: Jubilee Queen Elizabeth II starts four-day celebration of 60-year reign at the races./ Page A10

The author lived and wrote in Key West throughout the 1930s. Public voting is scheduled June 2 to 29 to choose 10 finalists. The winner will win a trip to Key West to compete in a preliminary round of the 2012 Sloppy Joes Papa Hemingway Look-Alike Contest. The contest at Sloppy Joes Bar takes place during Key Wests annual Hemingway Days festival, set for July 17 to 22. Hemingway Days also features a marlin tournament and a short story contest coordinated by the authors granddaughter, Lorian Hemingway.Mass. woman killed in Panhandle car accident NAVARRE Authorities said a Massachusetts woman visiting the Florida Panhandle has died in a traffic accident involving a 15-year-old driver. Margaret Catyb of Dracut, Mass., had traveled to Navarre to see her grandson graduate from high school. Catyb died Thursday after the teenager pulled her vehicle into the path of the car driven by Catybs son, Alley Catyb II, also of Dracut, Mass. Alley Catyb and the teen were treated for minor injuries. Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Steven Preston told the Pensacola News Journal the teen violated her driving learners permit, which required her to have someone 21 or older in the car with her. FHP said alcohol was not involved in the crash. Preston said charges are pending. Teen on dirt bike killed in northeast FloridaJACKSONVILLE Authorities said a teenage boy riding a dirt bike died Friday after colliding with a Jeep in northeast Florida. The Jacksonville Sheriffs Office said the small motorcycle and the SUV collided around dusk Friday in a wooded area known for off-roading. Lt. Randy Parmer told The Florida Times-Union people were driving through mud in the area after some rain. The teens identity was not released.Stimulus money boosts coral reef restorationKEY LARGO Coral reef restoration along Floridas shores has been getting a boost from federal stimulus money. The American Recovery and Restoration Act of 2009 provided $3.3 million to grow threatened corals in underwater nurseries and then transplant them along a 300-mile reef tract. The money was part of $167 million given to coastline restoration projects. The funding ends in December The superintendent of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary told The Miami Herald the stimulus money has helped expand coral restoration projects. Before the funding, most projects focused on places where large vessels had run aground. Now the projects span the reef. Scientists say staghorn and elkhorn coral populations have declined by about 90 percent throughout the Caribbean during the past 30 years. SW Fla man charged with selling fake Rolex watches CAPE CORAL A southwest Florida man has been arrested for allegedly selling counterfeit Rolex watches. According to the Lee County Sheriffs Office, James Lynch of Cape Coral posted the watches for sale in an online classified advertisement on Craigslist. The sheriffs office said an undercover detective purchased five watches from Lynch Thursday. Other detectives followed Lynch to his home, where they found 70 counterfeit Rolex, Breitling, Omega and Movado watches. The sheriffs office said detectives also found fake Oakley sunglasses and Louis Vuitton purses, wallets and belts. Deputies said the retail value that the counterfeit items defrauded the real manufacturers is between $750,000 and $1 million. Lynch posted $5,000 bond Friday on a second-degree felony charge of selling counterfeit items over $20,000. Jail records did not show whether he had an attorney.Port Authority: Fla. truck driver had fake plates FORT LEE, N.J. A Florida truck driver who allegedly used fake license plates from different states to evade tolls is facing many charges after being stopped on the George Washington Bridge in New Jersey. Al Della Fave, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, said 32-year-old Michael Krasozski of Sunny Isles Beach was driving a car carrier with 10 vehicles when it was stopped around 10 a.m. Saturday. Della Fave said Port Authority police officers Michael Brennan and Jason Malice were in an unmarked car when they noticed problems with the carriers license plates. After stopping the vehicle, they eventually determined the plates apparently were made by hand and one was a Maine plate and the other an Arizona plate. Krasozski was charged with theft of services and falsifying and tampering with public records. He also will face many motor vehicle summonses. It was not known Saturday afternoon if he had retained an attorney Della Fave said it was not immediately known whether Krasozski or the Arizonabased company that owns the car carrier owed any unpaid tolls or fees.

Top hits on the Chronicleonline.com website include: Taking a nameIn a world where achievers strive to make a name for them selves, it came as a surprise when a local Realtor learned someone else was making a name for him. As it turns out, some scam artist or artists zapped his computer with a virus, enabling them to obtain the names of people with whom the Realtor has had business dealings. While those who brave the Internet are growing increasingly accustomed to being emailed hard-luck tales from supposed friends, family members or acquaintances, being bogusly thumbed as the one reaching out to unassuming contacts puts an all-toopersonal stamp on the scam. Pedestrian fatality A walk down a dark Croft Avenue during the predawn hours this past weekend resulted in the death of a 24-year-old Floral City man. A motorist traveling down the Inverness-area road was reportedly unable to see the 24-year-old, said to be in the northbound lane just outside the center doubleyellow line. The driver received minor injuries. No charges were filed. County loses pillar A gasp of grief was palpable throughout county government and beyond this past week. Longtime county employee and operations/planning officer Gary Maidhof died suddenly after a nature walk while in Idaho. He was only 54. While viewed far and wide as a human encyclopedia when it comes to Citrus County factoids, it was his personality that endeared him to many. I laughed every day I worked for Gary .... Its like he found humor in everything. He just had a way of bringing lightness to every situation. a coworker said, adding, I never met a man like him in my entire life, and I dont think Ill ever again. He was my hero. Barging inA non-drive-through convenience store had an unexpected drive-through encounter Monday when a motorists brakes gave way. When the driver wheeled into the parking lot of the Super Discount store in Crystal River, he hit the brakes and they failed so he subsequently hit the store. While the store suffered damage, the motorist said of his truck, It is driveable but not until I get the brakes fixed. The Super Discount employees would agree. Suspect nabbed The man in black was bound to be an inmate in orange after authorities concluded he was the fellow who held up a Kangaroo store and snatched a money bag from a Dollar Tree employee. A witness said the 26-year-old Beverly Hill-ian ditched his dark duds after one of the dastardly deeds. When authorities closed in on his abode, the suspect attempted take flight but instead had a K9 encounter. The suspect is said to have acknowledged he has a bit of a pill problem.

Recognizing the danger presented to the public by defective vehicle equipment, troopers will concentrate their efforts on vehicles operated with defects such as bad brakes, worn tires and defective lighting equipment. In addition, attention will be directed at drivers who would violate the driver license laws of Florida. These checkpoints are random, daytime operations that typically delay motorists for a few minutes only. Local supervisors select the time, location and duration of the checkpoints on the roadways listed below based on staffing, weather and traffic conditions.

FHP checkpoints ahead for driver licenses, vehicle safety C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterAfter a career of helping county residents enjoy their spare time with recreation, Rafael Del Valle will finally relax himself. Del Valle, Citrus County parks and recreation manager, retired Friday from a county department that first employed him in 1987. Weve tried to talk him out of (retiring), but hes made up his mind, County Administrator Brad Thorpe said at an April meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners. His wife cannot be convinced. Thorpe said Del Valle had written grants that brought millions of dollars in state and federal funding for county parks. Our parks would not look the way they are if it wasnt for Rafael, Thorpe said. I always remember his efforts. Cathy Pearson, assistant county administrator and director of the Department of Community Services, said she would miss him. Rafael Del Valle is a guy who never says no, Pearson said. He makes it happen. You give him a project. You dont have to worry about it it gets done. Citrus Countys park system offers a wide variety of activities in natural settings. Residents can choose from tennis, baseball, basketball, soccer, canoeing, gulf or pool swimming, hiking, camping, skateboarding, bird-watching and sitting on a park bench in about 39 recreational facilities and about 27 parks. Much work goes into keeping it functioning. Del Valle started work with the county with an evening job in 1987, then went to full-time the following year as a recreation supervisor. He worked up to assistant director for about 10 years, and then became parks and recreation manager in 2002. Born in Puerto Rico, Del Valle grew up in New York. Im a product of the Boys Club of New York, Del Valle said. He was awarded scholarships for education in Boston and Illinois, and said he wanted to give back. In order to give back, it was through recreation because thatS what Boys Club is all about, Del Valle said. Looking back, Del Valle spoke of his first project. One of the projects Im most proud of is my very first project, which is the Floral City tree project where we planted all the trees out there, Del Valle said. It was kind of neat because at the time, I thought it was the nicest park in the county. We were able to get a grant and get 432 trees that we planted, and I actually went out there and marked every single spot, so thats kind of dear to me because it was my first project. As manager, Del Valle got hold of grants for maintenance and improvements. I was able to obtain almost $1 million in grants in dealing with Bluebird Springs, Bicentennial Park, Holder Park, Homosassa Recreational Park and Central Ridge Park, all big projects, Del Valle said. Central Ridge in particular, we were able to obtain two different grants to support that. We did the soccer field as the last project out there. Del Valle is leaving with a sense of completion. One of the things I wanted to accomplish before I left was to finish Eugene Martin Park (in South Dunnellon), he said. It was an ongoing 20-year project, and I was able to pull that in and it really made me feel great. One regret is that residents dont use the parks as much as he would like them to. There are an immense amount of activities, but people dont know where to go. And thats my biggest disappointment, Del Valle said. We have beautiful parks, and we offer great programs and they just dont take advantage. Del Valle, however, will have the time to show how parks should be used. Being a recreational professional, Im going to study leisure as much as I can, Del Valle said. Make myself have fun, enjoy myself. The new manager, Michael Howell, is already on the job. He has 25 years experience in the recreational field, including athletic facilities, maintenance and design, in both the private and public sectors in Maryland and Rhode Island. Hes a graduate of the University of Southern California, for whom he played football, and he also played with the San Diego Chargers.

County parks and recreation chief retires DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Rafael Del Valle, Citrus County Parks and Recreation manager, retired Friday after 25 years with Citrus County. He plans to spend more time with his wife and grandchildren. Ready to relax, reflect Zimmermans credibility might be issue Associated PressSANFORD The credibility of Trayvon Martins shooter could be an issue at trial after a judge said George Zimmerman and his wife lied to the court about their finances to obtain a bond, legal experts say. Thats because the case hinges on jurors believing his account of what happened the night the 17-yearold was killed. Zimmerman wasnt charged in the case until more than a month after the shooting, saying he shot Martin in self-defense under Floridas so-called stand your ground law. Protests were held across the nation, and the case spurred debate about race. Martin was black; Zimmermans father is white and his mother is from Peru. The questioning of Zimmermans truthfulness by the judge on Friday could undermine his credibility if it is brought up at trial. It also may complicate how his defense presents him as a witness, said Orlando-area attorney Randy McClean, who is a former prosecutor. The other key witness, unfortunately, is deceased, McClean said. Basically, Zimmerman is going to be asking the jury to believe his version of the facts. ... As the case stands now, his credibility is absolutely critical to the case. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder for the February shooting. The neighborhood watch volunteer says he shot Martin in self-defense because the unarmed 17-yearold was beating him up. George Zimmerman accused of lying. Judge claims accused shooter lied to obtain bond

Amend Section 2 of the proposed rule titled take of endangered and threatened wildlife to add the following language: permitting for incidental take shall adhere to standards set forth in Florida statute to prohibit regulations and restrictions of permitting which would have undue interference with the rights of fishers, boaters and water skiers. Permitting for individual take may be authorized by the Commission and the November 2010 changes to the text removing permitting for incidental take from the authority of the Commission shall be stricken. And for the removal of all references to the area called Kings Bay and Citrus County as appropriate for all waters now under Federal Manatee Refuge designation as of March 16, 2012. On March 15, the USFWS unveiled its new rules for waterborne activities on Kings Bay and designated the bay a manatee protection refuge. In its response to the petitions, FWC said the cooperative agreement is not a rule, but an arrangement between agencies to work in harmony for the common purpose of planning, developing and conducting programs to protect, manage, and enhance the populations of all resident endangered and threatened fish and wildlife within the state of Florida. FWC said the cooperative agreement does not create rights, require compliance or have any direct and consistent effect of law and, therefore, it is not a rule. FWC also took issue with the request to allow incidental permitting of a take and its ability to enforce federal laws citing the mutual aid agreement for cooperative law enforcement between the two agencies and a narrow permitting process that allows for incidental take of imperiled species. FWC said should Kings Bays federal designations be removed as per the petitioners request, no regulation will be in place to protect the manatees. Furthermore, if FWC accedes to the request and repeals federal regulations in Kings Bay and USFWS prevails in court challenges to its rules, FWC officials contend USFWS officials may impose additional rules to offset the state repeal. Therefore, FWC said it is denying the petitions. This is the second petition denial for Save Crystal River by FWC in as many months, and a first for the county and city. Patrick Rose, executive director of Save the Manatee Club, said he knew the petition bid was going to fail. None of this makes any sense. They dont have any legal facts to back any of their claims and are not based in reality, because what they are essentially saying is they dont want any protections for the manatees, Rose said. Rose said he has had it with the political leaders in the county, and it seems to him they have abandoned the jewel (manatees) that brings a lot of tourist dollars to the area for other pursuits. What we are seeing is now they are trying to link issues from Three Sisters Springs with the new federal rules. But we are going to be digging into a lot of things, and if they are not doing what is necessary to protect the manatees, we, too, will act appropriately and are willing to put the force of law behind us, Rose said. Crystal River City Manager Andy Houston said the city attorney will present the denial order at the June 11 City Council meeting, and the council would make the determination if they wish to appeal or not. I think there is a 30-day period for appeals, but that is something the council has to decide, Houston said. Chronicle reporter A.B.

of the courthouse. Stating the commission board is unified in its desire to conserve the courthouse, Webb encourage all in attendance to tour the courthouse after the ceremony. Jim Farley, the mayor of Crystal River, shared personal remarks about the courthouse before telling it, Happy birthday, Old Girl. Inverness mayor Bob Plaisted recognized all the people in city government who make things happen and how the courthouse is one of the greatest parts of Citrus County before he read a proclamation from the city council. State Rep. Jimmie T. Smith spoke about the courthouse being the foundation of Citrus County. For years, its been the place where parents pick up their children from Little League practice and a landmark residents use when giving directions to outof-towners, Smith explained. And while people often talk about the courthouses past, Smith said it honestly is a view into our future. Its a part of Citrus County he hopes his 4-year-old daughter will always remember, he said, so when shes older and has her own children and grandchildren, she will be able to share her memories. Show them the foundation of Citrus County. Show them the courthouse, he said. State Sen. Charlie Dean shared memories of playing in the courthouse as a child and rattled off every single business and family that used to occupy the courthouse square without skipping a beat. He talked about having two uncles who helped build the courthouse and how lively games of dominoes in the square were the preferred way to gamble before the Florida Lottery came along. We have so much heritage and so many things to be thankful for, he said. He, too, read a proclamation recognizing the county and the courthouse. Renna Jablonskis then presented a number of her former students from Inverness Primary School who created a time capsule 25 years ago, which sat dormant in the courthouse for years until a few weeks ago. Jablonskis admitted she had forgotten about the project until she got an unexpected call from Pati Smith with the city of Inverness telling her about it. After finding a list of the students who participated in the project, Jablonskis said they went to work contacting the students to see if they would be able to attend. Many of them are now doctors, lawyers and nurses with their own children and live in far off places, such as England and Alaska, Jablonskis said. But before opening the capsule, she presented the principals of Inverness Primary School and Pleasant Grove Elementary School and students from both schools who created a new time capsule that will be opened in another 25 years. During the formal opening of the capsule, Jablonskis presented the students with items and their lists of dreams and aspirations they had placed in the box a quarter-century ago. Some wanted to become astronauts and pilots. A number of children left signature 1980s memorabilia like a Care Bear figurine and Garbage Pail Kids trading cards. They then watched a video of interviews the students conducted with individuals they thought would be important to the future of Citrus County, such as Dean when he was sheriff, former county commissioner Nick Bryant and thenChronicle editor Gerry Mulligan. Ginny Bawcom, who came to the event to represent her son Dustin, said when her son, who lives in Alaska, heard about the time capsule he was shocked, but didnt remember it. Daniel Dilocker, however, said he remembered the project and had even thought about it two weeks before receiving the invitation to attend the birthday celebration. Though he didnt become a pro athlete like he said he would (hes a dean at a middle school in Lake County), Dilocker said it was fun to see himself in the video and how young everyone was.

Associated PressWASHINGTON The U.S. Department of Justice says at least some materials sealed as part of the court case against seven men involved in the 1972 Watergate burglary should be released. The agency responded Friday to a request by a Texas history professor who is seeking access to materials he believes could help answer lingering questions about the burglary that led to President Richard Nixons resignation. Luke Nichter of Texas A&M University-Central Texas in Killeen, Texas, wrote the chief judge of the federal court in Washington to ask that potentially hundreds of pages of documents be unsealed. The judge wrote in a letter made public earlier this year the professor had raised a very legitimate question about whether the material should remain sealed, and he ordered the Department of Justice to respond with any objections. Justice attorney Elizabeth Shapiro wrote in a court document filed Friday the office would not oppose the release of at least some documents. Forty years after the break-in at the Democratic National Committee that began the chapter of U.S. history known as Watergate, no good reason exists to keep sealed many of the judicial records created during the trial of the Watergate burglars, she wrote. But Shapiro said three categories of documents should remain secret: certain documents containing personal information, grand jury information and documents about the content of illegally obtained wiretaps. In particular, Nichter wants access to records of at least two court hearings held behind closed doors and interviews and testimony given by Alfred Baldwin III, a former FBI agent who was hired to listen to and transcribe conversations from a phone the burglars wiretapped at the Democratic National Committee during a burglary May 28, 1972. The burglars were caught when they returned to the office June 17, 1972. There is some precedent for unsealing Watergate documents. In 2011, the same judge, U.S. District Chief Judge Royce Lamberth, ordered that a secret transcript of President Nixons testimony to a grand jury about the Watergate break-in be made public. Lamberth agreed with historians that arguments for releasing the 297-page transcript outweighed arguments for secrecy, because the investigations are long over and Nixon died in 1994. Nichter, who also runs a website cataloging secret recordings made by President Nixon in the White House, said the governments reply is somewhat encouraging, though its hard to tell from it what documents he might get access to. Im obviously going to get something, but I dont know what that something is, he said Saturday. Nichter said he would consult the judge to see how to proceed now that the government has responded.

Long-sealed Watergate documents may be released J ACKG ILLUM Associated PressWASHINGTON Is it anything goes now in Americas campaign finance system? John Edwards is acquitted of using campaign cash as hush money. Theres an explosion of high-dollar super political action committees in the presidential race. Its all stoking criticism of revisions and regulatory loopholes in a system intended to keep better control of political money after Watergate. Loosening the law has made it easier for politicians to butt up against the legal line if not cross it and for wealthy Americans to influence who wins office, from the White House on down. All told, the immense amount of money in American campaigns, the cozy relationships between candidates and their financial backers and now, too, a seeming lack of accountability for alleged rule-breakers is fueling the publics long-standing distrust of its politicians and doubts about the credibility of the system. Theres not much for voters to have faith in, says Trevor Potter, a former Federal Election Commission member and a proponent of campaign-finance reform. We dont have much of a campaignfinance system at this stage, and we are wide open to the possibilities of corruption. Spanning many weeks, the Edwards trial in North Carolina showcased what prosecutors said was a classic case of misusing campaign funds: Here was a former presidential candidate, they said, who channeled large sums of money from a deep-pocketed donor to cover up a love child and a mistress. But jurors acquitted Edwards, in part because the statute he was charged under required him to know he was breaking the law. Jurors said the government didnt prove that. Said one, Sheila Lockwood: I just felt that he didnt receive any of the money, so you cant really charge him for money that he got. Campaign finance laws have changed remarkably since Edwards ran for the White House four years ago. Had he been a candidate this year, and had his backers wanted to help him, they could have established a super PAC and donated unlimited amounts of money that could have been used in any number of ways. Its unclear if that still would have been legal for the uses in his case, although the super PACs have been able to take more risks than the campaigns they support. Super PACs are barred from coordinating with a candidate. But it doesnt seem clarity is coming anytime soon. The FEC cant agree on new regulations. Take last December, when a Republican super PAC asked commissioners if it could fully coordinate with a Senate candidate. The commission deadlocked on a 3-3 vote after a heated discussion. Michael Toner, a Washington lawyer and election law expert, said it would be a mistake to conclude the failed prosecution of Edwards means campaign finance violations will not be prosecuted. Theres no question that there were relatively unique facts in the Edwards case, he said, and that there are other areas in campaign law where wrongdoing is clear cut such as contributions from foreigners. Its not just the FEC. A divided Congress has shown no appetite to take up the issue in earnest, despite calls for an overhaul by Democrats after a series of federal court rulings including the Supreme Courts Citizens United decision in 2010 started to deregulate the system. Political gridlock and regulatory ambiguity have paved the way for an unprecedented amount of spending from outside groups and special interests. Campaigns, political parties and super PACs supporting President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney have raised more than $400 million apiece, figures that put the election on track to cost more than $1 billion. Despite claims of independence, super PACs have incredibly close ties to the candidates theyre working to help elect. Restore Our Future, supporting Mitt Romney, shares office space with the same consultants who help Romneys own campaign. The groups insist there is a firewall the workspaces are separated, they have said, by a conference room. A former White House spokesman, Bill Burton, runs the Priorities USA Action super PAC with its goal of helping Obama win a second term. The fuzzy rules have super PACs pushing the limits. Many have nonprofit arms that legally dont have to disclose their donors. Some megadonors notably casino mogul Sheldon Adelson have said they will be giving their money to these shelters to avoid public scrutiny. Thats exactly what the laws we have are supposed to prevent, Potter said, that one candidate for public office is not completely beholden to an individual and his interests. Weve been here before. Congress began to change how Americans fund their elections in the mid-1970s after slush funds and cover-ups forced Richard Nixons resignation. I believe that one of the crucial factors in determining whether or not we consider a government democratic is not how much power public officials have, but rather how public officials secure and retain their offices, Lawton Chiles told his colleagues on the Senate floor in April 1974. Since then, theres been no shortage of instances of questionable relationships between politicians and the people who bankroll their candidacies. On the Democratic side, hundreds of Obamas major backers have had repeated access to his top advisers or have attended glamorous state dinners. The White House has declined to offer complete details on those meetings. And on the Republican side, GOP super PACs have faced their own troubles in disclosing donors required under existing rules. Some major contributors have been listed in federal data with ambiguous addresses or shell corporations. Situations like those have fueled voter Anything goes now in campaign financing? Associated Press Former presidential candidate John Edwards speaks outside a federal courthouse Thursday as his daughter, Cate Edwards, left, and father, Wallace Edwards, listen after his campaignfinance fraud case ended in a mistrial, in Greensboro, N.C. Edwards survived his campaign corruption trial and immediately started talking about his future, saying he wants to become a better father to his four kids and help the poor again. 000BMJV Call 795-5700 Crystal River Inverness Over 2000 participants have joined Gardner Audiologys research studies.

meeting with AHCA representatives was to look at ways to determine an accurate or acceptable amount of debt. For months, county staff has poured over pages of disputed bills from the state. At the end of the meeting, county staff covered specific claims and issues with some of the billings. AHCA representatives will take those issues back to Tallahassee and report back on their findings. One issue is verifying addresses. AHCA will try to offer all counties access to the Department of Children and Families computer system to help verify some of the residential billing claims. County staff gave AHCA members an overview of county billing procedures. They also talked about different options for paying the final bill. AHCA will advise Citrus County about its final bill amount Aug. 1. The county will have 30 days to accept it or challenge it. If the county accepts the total on the final bill from the state, a third of the money will be required to be paid the first year, and the rest of the payments would be spread over the next five years.

Early in May, the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners voted unanimously to join other counties in a legal complaint against AHCA and the Department of Revenue for this medical billing.

Once she found a job she felt possibly suited her needs, she said Workforce Connection, the regional workforce board that serves Citrus, Levy and Marion counties, helped make sure she and the employer would be a good match and aided in helping her land the new job closer to home. It beats having to check the want ads, McKeever said. It just streamlined everything. For the past two months, Workforce Connection has ranked in the top 10 among the states 24 regional workforce boards for reported job placements. In April, the states boards reported nearly 30,000 Floridians received job placement, according to the monthly job placement report from Workforce Florida and Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. Since January, nearly 124,000 job placements have been reported statewide including about 27,500 job seekers who had been receiving unemployment compensation. According to Laura Byrnes, communications manager for Workforce Connection, there were 99 job placements in Citrus County from March 1 to May 31 in 2011; but this year, only counting May job placement numbers up to May 16, there have already been 122 placements, exceeding those from the full period in 2011 by 23 percent. Additionally, in 2011 during the months of March and April, Citrus averaged 40 job placements a month. This year, it is up to 48.5 placements a month during the same period, Byrnes explained. When asked why using workforce services seem to be yielding positive results for job seekers, Byrnes said it really serves as a onestop shop for people so they dont have to comb through website after website for job listings. Its a time savings, she said. Coupled with receiving professional help from the employment specialists on site at no cost, Byrnes said in the long run, it helps craft great matches between job seekers and employers. McKeever said Workforce Connection really helped by conducting the preliminary interview. She said they took the time to ask what she wanted to do and what her expectations were. They also dug deeper to make sure she was capable of handling the job to ensure longevity. Its kind of like a marriage, she said. Even after the first interview, she said Workforce Connection followed up with her to see if she had any more questions or concerns. She now works for Dixie Hollins doing office work. Ive been working there since August, she said. The job is a perfect fit for what I was looking for. Tom Peterson, president of Villages Services Cooperative Inc. in Hernando, recently used Workforce Connection to find his newest community association manager, Kathi HutsonVincent. Peterson said John Siefert, executive director of the Citrus County Economic Development Council, introduced him to Workforce Connection in April. Originally, he said he wanted to hire a returning veteran to join his property management company, but when the search turned up empty, he broadened his search and found HutsonVincent. Her financial background, coupled with the fact she once had a community management license, helped seal the deal. We snatched her up as quickly as possible, he said. In addition to finding a new employee, Peterson said he is also using Workforce Connection to offer training to his employee using their On-the-Job Training program, which offers reimbursement of employee wages and training costs. For a small business, Peterson said the program is a great way to find qualified employees and save on costs.

N ATIONC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S UNDAY, J UNE 3, 2012 A9 000BJ03 MEDICAID Continued from Page A1 BOARD Continued from Page A1 Record NM blaze will test forest management Associated PressALBUQUERQUE, N.M. A wall of smoke advances across a vast swath of rugged country in southwestern New Mexico where the nations wilderness movement was born nearly a century ago. From the air, the smoke stretches as far as the eye can see. On the ground, firefighters talk about the steep canyons that keep them from directly attacking what has become the largest wildfire in New Mexicos recorded history and the largest currently burning in the country. Sure, things might look bad. But to land managers and scientists, the record-setting blaze represents a true test of decades of work aimed at returning fire to its natural role on the landscape a test that comes as many Western states grapple with overgrown forests, worsening drought and a growing prospect for more megafires. The Whitewater-Baldy fire has destroyed a dozen cabins while marching across more than 354 square miles of the Gila National Forest. A pair of lightning-sparked fires grew together to form the massive blaze. Unlike last years megafires in New Mexico and Arizona, this blaze is burning in territory that has been frequently blackened under the watchful eye of the Gilas fire managers. Starting in the early 1970s, the Gila has been leading the way when it comes to implementing such an active fire management strategy. Instead of immediately dousing flames in the wilderness, forest managers have let them burn as long as conditions are favorable. The question that the Whitewater-Baldy fire is expected to answer is whether that strategy will pay off with more natural, less intense fires. Theres a great opportunity here to study a fire like this, said Matthew Rollins, the wildland fire science coordinator with the U.S. Geological Surveys National Center in Virginia. The opportunity exists to look at how this fire has behaved differently in terms of vegetation mortality, effects on wildlife and fish habitat and water quality, Rollins said. We can study how it burned in the wilderness relative to areas with other types of fire management strategies and other types of ignition patterns. So far, the word from the fire lines is that the majority of the 227,000-acre blaze has burned with low to moderate intensity, not the kind of near-nuclear strength that was exhibited last year with the Las Conchas blaze in northern New Mexico. In that case, entire mountainsides were vaporized, leaving nothing behind but the white ashy skeletons of what used to be trees. And as for those unburned pockets within the fires boundaries, Rollins said he believes many of those spots have experienced lowintensity fire many times over the last century to make them more resilient. Previously burned areas have also helped slow the flames on the fires eastern flank. The fact that this is wilderness and the wilderness of the Gila has seen a lot of fires, we are comfortable with allowing it to burn. What we do is monitor it and help steer it around to keep some of the impacts lower than they would otherwise be on their own, said Danny Montoya, an operations section chief with the Southwest Incident Management Team. Montoya said the rugged terrain has forced firefighters to attack the flames indirectly by starving the fire of fuels along its perimeter. The smoke also has prevented direct attack from the air. Several helicopters and small planes are helping ground crews with backburn operations. While a burn severity map has yet to be released, members of the incident management team are estimating only 20 percent of the fire has burned at high intensity. Last week, the fire made a 60,000acre run in one day, scorching mixed conifer at high elevations as the flames were pushed by gusts of up to 60 mph. That kind of fire can be devastating, experts said. With fire behavior ranging from active to extreme, it will be some time before the scientists can get on the ground to see how the Gila has fared. Until then, they are working on gathering the decades of research done on the Gila, which is home to the worlds first designated wilderness. It was the father of the wilderness movement, forester and conservationist Aldo Leopold, who pushed for the formation of the Gila Wilderness in 1924. Tree ring data that dates back to the 1500s tells of the forests fire history and the age of its trees. The perimeters of the Gilas fires along with information about their severity and vegetation mortality for the last century have also been compiled by the U.S. Forest Service. Theres also more ecological data from the federal Joint Fire Science program that can be used for comparisons. I think its going to be a success story for the use of fire for managing forests, Rollins said. It might not look like it on TV right now, but we havent had any fatalities or dramatic housing loss like we see in Southern California or it burning so dramatically close to communities like last years Las Conchas fire. Experts agree the Gila will see changes regardless of the severity of the fire. In the worst spots, aspens and other shrubs are expected to take over. When were punching multithousand-acre holes in areas of ponderosa pine and drier mixed conifer types with no seed sources surviving, its very difficult for those conifers to be re-established, said Craig Allen, a USGS ecologist based at Bandelier National Monument in northern New Mexico. Fire managers are also expecting flooding. As the Las Conchas fire showed, steep denuded areas resulted in walls of water washing down canyons during the rainy season.

Fleeing erosion in California LOS ANGELES Years of ferocious storms have threatened to gnaw away the western tip of a popular beachfront park two hours drive north of Los Angeles. Instead of building a 500-footlong wooden defense next to the pier to tame the tide, the latest thinking is to flee. Work is under way to gauge the toll of ripping up parking lots on the highly eroded west end of Goleta Beach County Park and moving a scenic bike path and buried utility lines inland away from lapping waves. Up and down the California coast, some communities are deciding its not worth trying to wall off the encroaching ocean. Until recently, the thought of bowing to nature was almost unheard of. But after futile attempts to curb coastal erosion a problem expected to grow worse with rising seas fueled by global warming there is growing acknowledgment that the sea is relentless and any line drawn in the sand is likely to eventually wash over. I like to think of it as getting out of the way gracefully, said David Revell, a senior coastal scientist at ESA PWA, a San Francisco-based environmental consulting firm.

But he and his sons were cleared of corruption charges, setting off protests for greater accountability for 30 years of abuses under the old regime. By nightfall, a large crowd of up to 10,000 was back in Cairos Tahrir Square, the birthplace of the uprising, to vent anger over the acquittals. Similar protests went on in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria and Suez on the Red Sea. Justice was not served, said Ramadan Ahmed, whose son was killed on Jan. 28, the bloodiest day of last years uprising. Protesters chanted: A farce, a farce, this trial is a farce and The people want execution of the murderer. The case against Mubarak, his sons, and top aides was very limited in scope, focusing only on the uprisings first few days and two narrow corruption cases. It was never going to provide a full accountability of wrongdoing under Mubaraks three decades of authoritarian rule enforced by a brutal police force and a coterie of businessmen linked to the regime who amassed wealth while nearly half of Egypts estimated 85 million people lived in poverty. Mubarak, 84, and his exsecurity chief Habib el-Adly were both convicted of complicity in the killings of some 900 protesters and received life sentences.

Later in the weekend, the queen will make a trip down the River Thames, and then take in a concert all accompanied by tens of thousands of her subjects, coming out to fete a monarch whose longevity has given her the status of the nations favorite grandmother. An armada of vessels from historic sailboats and barges to kayaks, lifeboats and military launches was mustering along the Thames ahead of Sundays river pageant. The queen aboard the royal barge will lead the flotilla of 1,000 boats described by organizers as the biggest gathering on the river for 350 years. Diamond Jubilee festivities officially began Saturday with a 41-gun salute fired by the Kings Troop, Royal Horse Artillery at Horse Guards Parade in central London. The 86-year-old monarch and her husband, Prince Philip, visited Epsom racecourse south of the capital for the Derby, one of the years biggest horse-racing meetings. The queen waved to the 130,000-strong crowd as she was driven down the racecourse in a Bentley bearing the Royal Standard the cars sun roof kept shut under gray skies before settling down to watch the races from the royal box. Dressed in a royal blue coat and matching hat over a blue-andwhite floral dress, the queen was accompanied by members of the royal family including her sons Prince Andrew and Prince Edward and Andrews daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.

Queen off to the races as jubilee events begin Associated PressWASHINGTON The Obama administration is warning American businesses about an unusually potent computer virus that infected Irans oil industry even as suspicions persist that the United States is responsible for secretly creating and unleashing cyberweapons against foreign countries. The governments dual roles of alerting U.S. companies about these threats and producing powerful software weapons and eavesdropping tools underscore the risks of an unintended, online boomerang. Unlike a bullet or missile fired at an enemy, a cyberweapon that spreads across the Internet may circle back accidentally to infect computers it was never supposed to target. Its one of the unusual challenges facing the programmers who build such weapons, and presidents who must decide when to launch them. The Homeland Security Departments warning about the new virus, known as Flame, assured U.S. companies that no infections had been discovered so far inside the U.S. It described Flame as an espionage tool that was sophisticated in design, using encryption and other techniques to help break into computers and move through corporate or private networks. The virus can eavesdrop on data traffic, take screenshots and record audio and keystrokes. The department said the origin is a mystery. The White House has declined to discuss the virus. But suspicions about the U.S. governments role in the use of cyberweapons were heightened by a report in Fridays New York Times. Based on anonymous sources, it said President Barack Obama secretly had ordered the use of another sophisticated cyberweapon, known as Stuxnet, to attack the computer systems that run Irans main nuclear enrichment facilities. The order was an extension of a sabotage program the Times said began during the Bush administration. Private security researchers long have suspected the U.S. and Israeli governments were responsible for Stuxnet. But the newspapers detailed description of conversations in the Oval Office among Obama, the vice president and the CIA director about the U.S. governments responsibility for Stuxnet is the most direct evidence of this to date. U.S. officials rarely discuss the use of cyberweapons outside of classified settings. Stuxnet is believed to have been released as early as 2009. Cyberwar risks a new reality Clinton urges cooperation in resource-rich Arctic Associated PressTROMSO, Norway U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Saturday ventured north of the Arctic Circle and urged international cooperation in a region that could become a new battleground for natural resources. On her trip to the northern Norwegian city of Tromso, she conveyed that message of working together in one of the worlds last frontiers of unexplored oil, gas and mineral deposits. The region is becoming more significant as melting icecaps accelerate the opening of new shipping routes, fishing stocks and drilling opportunities. To safely tap the riches, the U.S. and other countries near the North Pole are trying to cooperate to combat harmful climate change, settle territorial disputes and prevent oil spills. The world increasingly looks to the North, Clinton told reporters after a twohour boat tour of the nearby Balsfjord and meeting with Arctic scientists. Our goal is certainly to promote peaceful cooperation, she said, adding that the U.S. was committed to promoting responsible management of resources and doing all we can to prevent and mitigate the effects of climate change. At the least, the U.S. and the other Arctic nations hope to avoid a confrontational race for resources. Officials say the picture looks more promising than five years ago when Russia staked its claim to supremacy in the Arctic and its $9 trillion in estimated oil reserves by planting a titanium flag on the ocean floor. The United States does not recognize the Russian assertion and has its own claims, along with Denmark, Norway and Canada, while companies from Exxon Mobil Corp. to Royal Dutch Shell PLC want to get in on the action. China also is keeping a close eye on the region.

Associated Press State begins $5 M tourism push; revives old icon D AVIDM C F ADDEN Associated PressKINGSTON, Jamaica A rchaeologists have said that theyll ask the United Nations cultural agency to bestow world heritage status on Port Royal, the mostly submerged remains of a historic Jamaican port known as the wickedest city on Earth more than three centuries ago. Receiving the designation from UNESCO would place Port Royal in the company of global marvels such as Cambodias Angkor temple complex and Indias Taj Mahal. The sunken 17th century city was once a bustling place where buccaneers, including Henry Morgan, docked in search of rum, women and boat repairs. In recent days, international consultants have conducted painstaking surveys to mark the old citys land and sea boundaries to apply for the world heritage designation by June 2014, said Dorrick Gray, a technical director with the Jamaican National Heritage Trust, a government agency responsible for preserving and developing the islands cultural spots. Port Royal was the main city of the British colony of Jamaica in the 17th century until an earthquake and tsunami submerged two-thirds of the settlement in 1692. It boasted a well-todo population of roughly 7,000 at the time, and was comparable to Boston during the same period. After the quake, the remainder of the town served as a British royal navy base for two centuries, even as it was periodically ravaged by fires and hurricanes. In his sprawling book Caribbean, American author James Michener described Port Royal as having no restraints of any kind, and the soldiers stationed in the fort seemed as undisciplined as the pirates who roared ashore to take over the place night after night. They were of all breeds, all with nefarious occupations. Now, its a depressed fishing village at the tip of a spit of land near Kingstons airport. It has little to attract visitors except some restaurants offering seafood and a few dilapidated historic buildings. The sunken, algae-covered remnants of the city are in murky waters in an archaeological preserve closed to divers without a permit. But in recent decades, underwater excavations have turned up artifacts including cannonballs, wine glasses, ornate pipes, pewter plates and ceramic plates dredged from the muck just offshore. The partial skeleton of a child was found in 1998. At a Tuesday press conference, experts said its among the top British archaeological sites in the Western Hemisphere and should be protected for future generations. There is outstanding potential here. Submerged towns like this just do not exist anywhere else in the Americas, said Robert Grenier, a Canadian underwater archaeologist who has worked closely with UNESCO. He believes the Jamaican site has a strong chance of getting on the world heritage list. Texas A&M University nautical archaeologist Donny Hamilton said the consulting team has completed the fieldwork for the world heritage assessment and is working on a management plan. He said Port Royal could become a sustainable attraction for tourists but first theres got to be something above the ground that people are going to want to come and see. Jamaican officials and businessmen have announced various strategies to renovate the ramshackle town over the years, including plans for modern cruise liners and a Disney-style theme park featuring actors dressed as pirates. Some area businessmen have grown exasperated with the slow pace of development.

He does absolutely nothing for her and expects everything in return. He tells her how to dress and whom she can and cannot speak to. Lois and her children (from a previous relationship) lived with Desmond until shed had enough. She then asked to move in with me, and I welcomed her with open arms. When Lois came here, she was sickly looking. Her skin was gray and her eyes were sunken. After some time away from Desmond, however, she seemed to perk up, becoming her old, bubbly self. The problem is, Lois recently has taken up with Desmond again and is lying to everyone about it. She claims that she met someone new through a dating site, but her browser history shows otherwise. She doesnt know that I know the truth. I keep her secret because I dont want to cause a problem, but I am so afraid that she will go back to him and take my nephews with her. This guy should not be a role model for anyone. I also believe there may be drugs involved. If she goes back to him, I worry that my mother will die of heartbreak. Lately, Lois has been speaking of wanting her freedom. I cant understand why she would return to someone who treats her like his servant. Should I tell her I know she is lying? I dont want to lose whats left of our relationship. Sister Mess Dear Sister: Dont accuse Lois of lying. Instead, talk to her about her decisions. Ask, without judgment, whether she is seeing Desmond again. Sympathize with her addiction to this guy, but point out how much happier she seems without him and that her children are better off, especially if drugs are involved. You could even suggest counseling to help her make better choices. Unfortunately, if Lois is determined to go back to Desmond, theres not much you can do. Make sure she has the number of the National Domestic Violence Hotline (thehotline.org) at 1-800799-SAFE (1-800-799-7233) just in case his controlling behavior escalates.

Humane Soci ety OF CITRUS COUNTY Dante You would think this little fellow believes he belongs in the show ring the way he prances when hes out for a walk. Dante is about 1 year old, weighs about 12 pounds, and is a friendly little fellow. He loves people and gets along well with other dogs his size. Judging from his appearance and the way he moves, we believe he is an Italian greyhound mix (possibly mixed with miniature pinscher). His medical is up to date and he is crate trained. An approved adoption application and adoption fee are required. To access the adoption application or to view other adoptable pets, visit the website at www.roomforonemore.net.

Special to the Chronicle A penthouse in Manhattan just sold for $90 million, which broke the record set last year when the 22-year-old daughter of a Russian billionaire spent $88 million on a Park Avenue pad that she plans to use during the few weeks a year when shes in town. (Its still hard for me to say Russian billionaire after years of thinking of Russia as a place full of empty, government-run stores where toilet paper if there was any was a luxury item.) In other big real estate news, someone bought a parking spot in the garage of a Manhattan building for a million dollars. Theyre kidding, right? Whos going to believe that someone who can blow a million dollars on a parking spot has only one car? Even I have two cars, and Im only, oh, a million dollars shy of having a million dollars. One of my cars is nine years old; the other is seven. But Im not jealous. This guy is obviously one of those people the news media now call job creators. If only we would lower his taxes, this guy could afford to buy two million-dollar parking spots and buy another car. Thats how you create jobs. When you and I buy a car, jobs are not created because were not rich. But when a rich person buys a car, tons of jobs are created. Thats why we all have to chip in and lower taxes for the wealthy. Why is that so hard to understand? What kind of car would someone park in a milliondollar parking space? A Ford? A Chevy? No, its probably one of those expensive European cars. Maybe a Porsche or a BMW. No, even that wont cut it. If youre spending a million dollars on a parking spot, youre probably driving one of those million-dollar cars like a Maybach or a Ferrari or a Lamborghini. Which would create a lot of manufacturing jobs in Europe. Of course, a lot of people think youd be crazy to own a car in a place like Manhattan. You can walk faster than you can drive there. You need a car in Manhattan like you need a rowboat in the Sahara. Then again, a lot of people think youre crazy if you walk in Manhattan. Its a lose-lose situation. Think of the wear and tear on the vehicle. How many times do you have to hear, Yo, buddy, it hurt my hand when I opened the cab door and dinged your Masarati. Id sue you, but Im in a hurry! before you stop taking the car out of the garage at all? Everybody knows parking is expensive in Manhattan. I was there on business last year and parked in one of the many underground garages. It was $5.95 for the first halfhour. Three hours later, I paid the $25 bill (plus $2 tip) and headed for home. As I pulled out of the garage, I saw a sign for another parking garage right across the street. It charged only $5.94 for the first half-hour. Free-market competition like that keeps parking prices low, low, low. Still, if you lived there, you could park your car at many parking garages in Manhattan for a monthly rate of $500. As outrageous as that may sound to the normal homeowner, it still is a deal compared to spending a million on a single parking spot. There used to be a show on TV in the late s called The Millionaire. A character named Michael Anthony would show up at someones front door and hand the shocked residents a cashiers check for a million dollars, tax-free, from reclusive gazillionaire John Beresford Tipton. There was one stipulation: They could never say where they got the money. Back then, a million dollars meant something; it could change your life. You could buy houses and cars for your friends and family. Now it buys you a parking space for a car.

Many players still within grasp of PGA victory Associated PressDUBLIN, Ohio Spencer Levin realizes that a one-shot lead going into the final round means next to nothing. If he didnt learn this by blowing a six-shot lead at the Phoenix Open earlier this year, he was reminded of it on the back nine Saturday at the Memorial. For the longest time, Levin simply couldnt miss. He chipped in for eagle from behind the fifth green. He holed a chip from 30 yards short of the 10th green for birdie, this one giving him a fourshot lead on a tough day at Muirfield Village. Eight holes later, his lead was down to one over Rory Sabbatini. If that wasnt enough, a collection of stars and proven players were lined up behind him including four-time Memorial champion Tiger Woods. Levin relied on a few good breaks and one good par save to match the low round of the day with a 3-under 69, giving him another chance at his first PGA Tour victory and an opportunity to get into the U.S. Open on Sunday without having to go through a 36-hole qualifier. The circumstances are far different from when Levin lost that six-shot lead in Phoenix, not only the margin but the caliber of players chasing him. Hell find out Sunday if he learned from his failure, though the self-styled Californian already is loaded with perspective.

PETERSBURG, Fla. Brian Matusz gave the sliding Baltimore Orioles a huge lift. Matusz gave up two hits in 7 13 innings and the Orioles ended a six-game losing streak by holding off the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1 Saturday. Every time I step on the mound, I want to go out there and compete and bring my best game, but to end a losing streak is definitely a good feeling, Matusz said. Its nice to go out there and get back on the winning side of things. Matusz (5-5) didnt give up a hit until the fifth inning. He struck out seven and walked three. I just attacked the zone and got ahead, and the Rays were swinging the bat so I got a lot of outs early in the count, Matusz said. When you have a good rhythm and good flow, its nice to just go out there and pound the strike zone with confidence. Reliever Pedro Strop got Ben Zobrist to ground into a basesloaded double play in the eighth. Jim Johnson pitched the ninth for his 17th save, completing the combined two-hitter. You know youve got a really good one when they can close a one-run game out on the road against the American League East, and Jimmys done that for us this year, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Baltimore broke a 1-all tie in the seventh.

After seeing his teams 15point lead dwindle to four, Durant took over midway through the fourth quarter by scoring all 16 of the Thunders points during a span of just over 5 minutes to keep the Spurs at bay. With All-Star teammate Russell Westbrook limited to seven points, Durant did almost all of the damage late to send the series back to San Antonio all square for Game 5 on Monday night. Tim Duncan had 21 points for San Antonio, which had won 20 in a row before losing Game 3. Schiavone upset, Murray wins at French Open Associated PressPARIS Mikhail Youzhny was having such a bad day in the third round of the French Open that he felt the need to apologize, right on court during the match. The 27th-seeded Russian scraped SORRI into the clay with his right foot in the middle of his 6-0, 6-2, 6-2 loss to No. 6 David Ferrer on Saturday. There was a lot of people. Thats why I write sorry. Because I cant show them a nice game, Youzhny said. The way we played in the beginning, it was not really interesting for people. Youzhny is well-known for a more painful on-court meltdown. In 2008 at the Sony Ericsson Open, Youzhny whacked himself in the head with his racket three times after losing a point. The antic left him with a thick stream of blood running from his hairline down his nose. Also Saturday, 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone was upset by Varvara Lepchenko of the United States 3-6, 6-3, 8-6, and fourthseeded Petra Kvitova defeated Nina Bratchikova of Russia 6-2, 4-6, 6-1. Lepchenko, who was born in Uzbekistan but lives in Allentown, Pa., is unseeded at Roland Garros and had never before made it past the second round at any Grand Slam tournament. She had 44 unforced errors against Schiavone, but still managed to advance. Its her court, you know, Lepchenko said. I knew that shes not going to give it for free. I had to work really hard, and I did.

Sunshine State slams foes FSU, UF, UCF all one win away from NCAA Super Regionals Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Brandon Leibrandt pitched eight scoreless innings and James Ramsey hit a grand slam as FloridaState defeated Samford 8-1 on Saturday in the Tallahassee Regional. Leibrandt (11-2) scattered three singles, just one after the first inning. The freshman left-hander, whose father is former big league pitcher Charlie Leibrandt, fanned a careerhigh 10 batters before leaving after throwing 110 pitches. Ramsey, the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year, hit his first grand slam in the seventh inning off Samfords Joseph Burns, who relieved Josh Martin (12-2) to face Ramsey. Sherman Johnson scored three times and also homered for FloridaState (4515). Jayce Boyd added two hits and two RBIs for the Seminoles.

Umpires reversed a strikeout call at the end of the third inning, sending Georgia Tech back to the dugout and Florida back on the field. Techs Jake Davies eventually struck out, making the call moot, but he tipped his hat to Florida fans booing him. Zunino, who was involved in the disputed call, homered to open the fourth. Georgia Tech coach Danny Hall was ejected in the fifth while arguing an aggressive slide at second base. In the seventh, Tech catcher Zane Evans yelled at Florida shortstop Nolan Fontana following a play at the plate. Fontana kicked Evans facemask after getting thrown out trying to score.

UCF (45-15) has won both of its games and can win the regional with a win over the Stony Brook-Missouri State winner. Matos broke a 5-all tie in the sixth with his homer. Chris Taladay stretched the lead to 9-5 with a sacrifice fly. Chris Matulis (7-0) allowed four runs in five relief innings for the win.

In the two losses this year, the Hurricanes were outscored 224. Miami had won 13 straight regional championships when serving as the host. Missouri State (40-21) scored seven runs in the first inning sending 11 batters to the plate off Steven Ewing (6-3), who lasted just two-thirds of an inning. USF bounced from Womens CWS Associated PressOKLAHOMA CITY LSUs A.J. Andrews scored on an infield fly in the sixth inning to lead the Tigers to a 1-0 win over South Florida on Saturday in the Womens College World Series. The only two unseeded teams in the tournament, LSU and South Florida (5014) were locked in a pitchers duel. Hit by a pitch to start the sixth, Andrews moved to third after a long fly ball from Ashley Langoni bounced off center fielder Janine Richardsons glove at the warning track. Allison Falcon lofted a fly ball two batters later forcing USF shortstop Kourtney Salvarola to the edge of the outfield grass. Andrews tagged from third and thrust her left hand in to grab a corner of the plate on a wide slide around USF catcher Laura Fountain. LSU senior Brittany Mack finished off her 15th career shutout, allowing two hits and advancing LSU to a Saturday night elimination game against Arizona State. USF starter Sara Nevins again was plagued by footwork problems in the circle. Against LSU, play was stopped three times for Nevins illegal pitches but she was able to make the adjustment and allow two hits and an unearned run. Nevins was called for seven illegal pitches on Thursday against Oklahoma resulting in her abandoning her changeup and the Sooners collecting five hits, including a two-run home run.Arizona State 6, LSU 0 OKLAHOMA CITY Defending champion Arizona State staved off elimination with a 6-0 win over LSU in the Womens College World Series. The Sun Devils will have to beat No. 4 seed Oklahoma twice Sunday afternoon to advance to Mondays championship series. The Sooners (52-8) did not play on Saturday after beating South Florida Thursday and then California Friday. Alix Johnson was a big part of two big ASU innings. In the third she broke a scoreless tie with a three-run home run on the first pitch from LSU starter Rachele Fico. In the fifth, Johnson singled, stole second and scored along with Haley Steele, and Amber Freeman with the help of a single from Sam Parlich. ASU starter Hillary Bach was called for five illegal pitches for lifting her pivot foot but settled down to finish the four-hitter. It was her 11th this season. LSU ends its season at 40-25.

Ricky Nolasco (6-3) allowed four runs on eight hits in seven-plus innings to improve to 6-1 in seven career starts at Philadelphia for the Marlins. Miami has won four of its last five and denied Cole Hamels (82) his ninth victory. Jose Reyes had an RBI double to extend his hitting streak to 13 games. Hunter Pence homered for the second straight game for the Phillies, who lost for just the third time in 10 games. Ramirez homered in his second straight at-bat in the sixth, a two-run shot to left, to give Miami a 4-3 lead. After Omar Infante led off the inning with an infield single, Ramirez drove Hamels 2-2 changeup into the seats in left for his 12th career multihomer game. NATIONAL LEAGUE Nationals 2, Braves 0 WASHINGTON Stephen Strasburg pitched four-hit ball for seven sharp innings and Jesus Flores homered, leading the Washington Nationals over the Atlanta Braves 2-0. Strasburg (6-1) completed seven shutout innings for the first time in his major league career. He opened the game with a flourish, striking out the first four Braves batters. Strasburg struck out nine, walked none and threw 90 pitches. Twice he gave up singles and then induced double-play grounders. Sean Burnett allowed two singles in a scoreless eighth and Tyler Clippard pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save in fifth chances. Brandon Beachy (5-4) allowed just three hits in 6 1-3 innings. Mets 5, Cardinals 0NEW YORK R.A. Dickey followed up Johan Santanas no-hitter by shutting out St. Louis, David Wright homered and the New York Mets beat the Cardinals 5-0. Dickey (8-1) gave up seven hits, struck out nine and walked none in his third career shutout first this season. The Mets scored three runs in the second, on a mishandled grounder and two run-scoring groundouts to win for the sixth time in eight games. Carlos Beltran had a clean double against Dickey in the second inning a day after he hit a shot down the line that looked fair but was ruled foul against Santana. The Cardinals have lost four straight and seven of nine. Dodgers 6, Rockies 2 DENVER Aaron Harang pitched six strong innings, Bobby Abreu homered for the first time this year and the Los Angeles Dodgers ended a season-worst fivegame losing streak with a 6-2 win over the Colorado Rockies. Andre Ethier and Elian Herrera had two hits and two RBIs each and James Loney also had two hits for the Dodgers. Michael Cuddyer and Wilin Rosario had RBI doubles and DJ LeMahieu had two hits for the Rockies, who had their five-game win streak snapped. A day after the Rockies roughed up Los Angeles pitchers for 13 runs on 15 hits, Harang (4-3) held Colorados suddenly potent offense to one run on four hits.Giants 2, Cubs 1 SAN FRANCISCO Matt Cain pitched into the ninth inning on the way to winning his fifth straight start and the San Francisco Giants beat the Chicago Cubs 2-1. Aubrey Huff drew a bases-loaded walk to tie the game at 1 in the sixth, then San Francisco went ahead on an RBI fielders choice by Joaquin Arias on which Huff broke up a would-be double play. Huff produced his first RBI since April 16 and just his fifth this season after he spent a stint on the disabled list with anxiety disorder and is no longer a regular. David DeJesus homered but it wasnt enough to help the Cubs avoid their ninth straight road loss. It is Chicagos longest skid away from Wrigley Field since also dropping nine in a row from Aug. 25 to Sept. 10, 2006. Brewers 5, Pirates 1MILWAUKEE Brooks Conrad ended his 0-for-27 slump to start the season, hitting a homer and driving in three runs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers past the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-1. Shawn Marcum (4-3) pitched seven strong innings for Milwaukee, giving up five hits while striking out eight without a walk. Pirates starter Erik Bedard (3-6) lasted just 3 2-3 innings. He allowed five hits, five runs and three walks in his shortest outing of the season other than a May 9 game against Washington that he left in the second because of back spasms. Cody Ransom had a two-run single for Milwaukee and Rickie Weeks hitting just .158 coming in reached base all four times with two hits and two walks. D-backs 4, Padres 2SAN DIEGO Daniel Hudson pitched eight strong innings and Paul Goldschmidt homered, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 4-2 win over the San Diego Padres. The Diamondbacks, who have scored two runs or less in three of their last four games, got an assist from San Diego reliever Joe Thatcher, who balked in the goahead run in the seventh inning. Hudson, making his second start since coming off the disabled list, allowed two runs on five hits while striking out five and walking one. Hudson also had a sacrifice fly. Goldschmidt extended his career-best hitting streak to 11 games with a solo homer in the fifth inning into the second deck in left field that tied the score 2-all. AMERICAN LEAGUE Red Sox 7, Blue Jays 4 TORONTO Felix Doubront won for the fifth time in six starts, Nick Punto homered and the Boston Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 7-4. Punto fell a triple shy of the cycle and drove in two runs to lead Boston to its 10th win in 14 games. Daniel Nava also had two RBIs as the Red Sox (28-25) moved a season-high three games above .500. Doubront (6-2) allowed three runs, two earned, and seven hits in 6 1-3 innings, improving to 5-1 with a 2.72 ERA in his past five starts. The left-hander walked one, struck out seven and matched a career-high by allowing two home runs. Athletics 9, Royals 3 KANSAS CITY, Mo. The struggling Oakland Athletics took advantage of some bumbling Kansas City defense to pile up their most offense in more than three weeks, helping them snap a ninegame losing streak with a 9-3 victory over the Royals. Brandon McCarthy (4-3) came off the disabled list to throw six innings, Jemile Weeks reached base four times and Josh Reddick had a two-run triple during a four-run fifth for Oakland. The As nine runs surpassed their total from the previous six games combined. One of the worst offenses in baseball hardly looked like it against Luke Hochevar (3-6), who has become something of a salve for scuffling attacks. The former first overall draft pick allowed six runs in 4 2-3 innings, the sixth time hes failed to get past the fifth this season. Mariners 10, White Sox 8, 12 innings CHICAGO Ichiro Suzuki homered twice, John Jaso hit a tiebreaking double in the 12th inning and the Seattle Mariners ended Chicagos nine-game winning streak by beating the White Sox 10-8. Jesus Montero led off the 10th with a double against Addison Reed (0-1). One out later, Jaso drove in pinch-runner Munenori Kawasaki. Chone Figgins followed with an RBI single. Tom Wilhelmsen (2-1) pitched three scoreless innings, allowing one hit, for the victory. Hisashi Iwakuma earned his second save by pitching the 12th, retiring Adam Dunn on a grounder with a runner on second to end it. Chicagos Dayan Viciedo tied the game with a two-out solo homer in the eighth off Stephen Pryor the eighth home run of the game, four by each team. Twins 7, Indians 4CLEVELAND Joe Mauer broke out of a slump with three hits and three RBIs, including a two-run homer, to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 7-4 win over the Cleveland Indians. Mauer entered the game in an 0-for-10 skid, but had an RBI single in Minnesotas four-run first inning. He also singled in the second and hit a two-run homer in the seventh off Tony Sipp. East Division WLPctGBWCL10StrHomeAway Baltimore3023.5663-7W-114-1316-10 Tampa Bay3023.5665-5L-118-1112-12 New York2823.549117-3W-214-1114-12 Boston2825.528227-3W-213-1415-11 Toronto2726.509333-7L-215-1212-14 Central Division WLPctGBWCL10StrHomeAway Chicago3023.5669-1L-113-1417-9 Cleveland2824.538114-6L-116-1512-9 Detroit2428.462554-6L-111-1313-15 Kan.

This Date In Baseball June 3 1918 Dutch Leonard of the Boston Red Sox pitched his second no-hitter, blanking the Detroit Tigers 5-0. 1932 Lou Gehrig became the first American League player to hit four home runs in a game, helping the New York Yankees beat the Philadelphia As 20-13. The event was overshadowed by the resignation of John McGraw as manager of the New York Giants. 1954 Henry Thompson of the New York Giants hit three home runs and drove in eight runs in a 13-8 win against the St. Louis Cardinals. Willie Mays drove in the other five runs with two homers. 1971 Ken Holtzman of the Chicago Cubs pitched his second no-hitter, beating the Cincinnati Reds 1-0. 1978 Dave Johnson became the first major leaguer to hit two pinch-hit grand slams in a season. His grand slam in the ninth inning gave the Philadelphia Phillies a 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. 1989 Los Angeles and Houston played 22 innings at the Astrodome in the longest night game in National League history 7 hours and 14 minutes. The Astros won the game on Rafael Ramirezs RBI single off Jeff Hamilton, normally the Dodgers third baseman. When the game ended, Fernando Valenzuela was playing first and Eddie Murray was at third. 1989 Nolan Ryan pitched his 11th career one-hitter and struck out 11 as Texas beat Seattle 6-1. It was Ryans 16th low-hit game (no-hitter or one-hitter), breaking Bob Fellers record of 15. 1995 Pedro Martinez of Montreal pitched nine perfect innings against San Diego before giving up a leadoff double to Bip Roberts in the 10th inning of the Expos 1-0 win. 2003 Sammy Sosa was ejected in the first inning of Chicagos 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays after umpires found cork in his shattered bat. 2006 Damion Easley hit three homers and had seven RBIs in Arizonas 13-9 victory over Atlanta. 2008 Randy Johnson took sole possession of second place on baseballs career strikeout list after getting the Milwaukee Brewers Mike Cameron to go down swinging in the first inning. It was Johnsons 4,673rd career strikeout, breaking a tie with Roger Clemens and leaving the Arizona Diamondbacks veteran ace behind only Nolan Ryan, who had 5,714 strikeouts in his career.

Murray, who complained of a bad back in his secondround win over Jarkko Nieminen, showed no ill effects in the third round a 2 hour, 2 minute win in which he never lost his serve and faced break point only once. Youzhny won his first game early in the second set, making it 2-1. He held serve at love when Ferrer sent a forehand return into the net. But instead of heading straight for his chair for the changeover, he stopped just inside the service line and started writing out his message. A ball boy stood nearby with Youzhnys towel, and then backed off as the Russian continued drawing out the letters. People in the stands may not have noticed, but I think I had to do this, Youzhny said. nothing really changed, he said. Obviously, you want to win when youre in positions. But Im just going to go out there tomorrow and have fun. Nothing really changed in my life, and I dont think anything will change that big in my life if I do win. Its just going out there and try and do my best. It might take more than that.

W hile sitting at my daughters swim club practice, I started reading about the current group of American swimmers and their quest to make the Olympic team at the Olympic Trials in Omaha this June. Many veterans, even 40-year-old Janet Evans, are trying to make the team. You would think that if these athletes have been consistently winning their events all year long, that they would be tapped for the Olympic team. However, in almost every Olympic sport it is up to one meet the Olympic trials. You must finish in the top two, in some sports the top three, to qualify for the U.S. Olympic Team. Four years of training to be able to compete in the Olympics comes down to one meet. One event lasting between nine seconds and 10 minutes, a couple of hours for the marathon, three jumps or five dives. In some sports, you have a shot at several Olympics if good enough. In other sports, it is the one chance in a lifetime. In reading the interviews of some of the competing swimmers, almost every comment notes the trials are more exciting and nerve-racking than the Olympics. Thus for many Americans who rank as the best in the world in their event, they have already peaked well before the Olympics even start. As an Olympian in one sport and a Big Ten/NCAA athlete in another sport, you learn the regional qualifiers are the gateway to nationals and thus to the Olympics. It is so easy to write about while sitting on the couch, so hard to do in the commitment in the years of training, dedication of family and finances. In figure skating you had to win the regionals to even get to nationals. So many kids and individuals peak for regionals then get to nationals and lose the edge and excitement because they just made it to nationals. My wife, who ran for University of Arizona, always did great in the NCAA regional and got to nationals but could never run her best. When working in Jacksonville last week, the NCAA southeast regional track championships were being held. While talking to some of the competitors, it was startling to see how few could really see beyond the regionals to the big picture or have the competitive endurance to extend their season to achieve an Olympic goal. Through all the competitive steps and hours of training, an injury could be one boxers punch, one hurdlers misstep, one divers awkward entry into the water or one vaulters grip giving out that will making the training schedule difficult to keep or even prevent being able to compete. To be in the Olympics let alone achieve a medal, takes the ultimate alignment of talent, training and sports psychology and remaining injury-free. It comes down to one race in the trials to qualify, and one race at the Olympics to medal. The top athletes are the best athletes to be able to do both!

Dr. Ron Joseph DOCTORS ORDERS Recreation BRIEFS Sprint Cup pole is Martins Logano wins Nationwide race at Dover Associated PressDOVER, Del. Mark Martin has more poles than candles on the birthday cake. Not bad for a driver pushing limits in a stock car long after so many elite athletes have settled into retirement. Martin took the last qualifying ride of the day and turned a lap of 158.297 mph on Saturday to win the pole at Dover International Speedway. The 53-year-old Martin now has 54 career Sprint Cup poles and won it in the No. 55 Toyota. That 53-54-55 trifecta paid off big for Martin on the Monster Mile. Even with all those 50s, Martin is no golden oldie. He has three poles this season in 10 races while racing a limited schedule for Michael Waltrip Racing. Hes looking for his first Cup win Sunday since 2009. I feel like a lucky guy to be strapping in that 55, Martin said. Waltrip was among the first to greet Martin after the winning lap. Im so proud of you. Thats amazing, Waltrip told him. Martin has turned into a driver-for-hire over the latter stages of a career that has seen him do it all except win a Cup championship. He spent the past three seasons with Hendrick Motorsports, but changed teams in the offseason, joining Waltrip for a partial season. Martin is slated to run 24 of 36 races this season while sharing seat time with Waltrip. He has four top-10 finishes over his first nine races and was third at Texas. Theyre learning about me, Im learning about them, and were having a blast, Martin said. Jimmie Johnson, who was six career wins at Dover, was poised to earn the top spot with a lap of 158.263 mph until Martin knocked him off. Nationwide race at Dover goes to Logano DOVER, Del. Joey Logano had wasted enough shots at winning Dover to feel like he was on the brink of doing it again. Out in front for most of the race, Logano fell back after a four-tire pit stop, paving the way for Ryan Truex to take the lead. Back in the pack, Logano wondered if hed blown another win at Dover. I was thinking the same thing was happening today, Logano said. It figures. Logano instead powered his way to the lead with six laps left when Truex got mired in lapped traffic on Saturday to win the Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway. When you lead it and you think you gave it away, and then you get it back there at the end, Logano said, thats exciting. Truex started from the pole and raced for the first time since he needed an appendectomy nearly two weeks ago. He had the top car toward the end of the race until he got loose with less than 10 laps left. Logano capitalized and made the late charge outside through a pair lapped drivers to zip past Truex for his fourth Nationwide win of the season. Im not happy, Truex said. Its second and I should be happy with it, but we had a winning car. Associated Press Mark Martin poses with the flag after he won the pole Saturday during qualifying for Sundays Sprint Cup Series auto race in Dover, Del.

Edwards and Hunter had an affair while the Democrat was running for the White House in 2008 and have a daughter together, Frances Quinn Hunter.

He had been accused of orchestrating a plan to use money from campaign donors to hide Hunter while he ran for the White House. His relationship with Hunter currently remains unclear. Fans toss chairs after show stops BUFFALO, N.Y. Fans of the country music singer Eric Church smashed chairs and threw bottles and cans after his planned concert in Buffalo was canceled due to bad weather. The Buffalo News reported organizers of the WYRK Taste of Country concert decided to halt the multi-act show at around 11 p.m. Friday after strong winds threatened the stage at Buffalos Coca Cola Field. Church had originally been scheduled to go on at about 9:45 p.m. Some fans, who had been waiting in heavy rain, responded by hurling chairs onto the stage, or dumping them into large piles. The singer issued a statement saying he was bummed about the cancellation. Elvis celebrated at festival TUPELO, Miss. Elvis Presley fans and impersonators have taken over this city where the King of Rock n Roll was born. The 2012 Elvis Festival is in full-swing with Elvis impersonators squaring off in a singing contest at the Lyric Theatre. The Daily Journal reported that the singing competition, the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, continued Saturday. On Saturday, sporting events, a downtown Elvis parade, an Elvis lookalike pet parade and other events were on tap. The festival wraps up Sunday. Associated PressNEW YORK Claude Monets beloved flower and water gardens in the north of France are worldfamous. But for those unable to visit the artists iconic home, a trip to the Bronx over the next several months will offer a taste of Monets indisputably radiant living masterpiece a riotous display of color, plant variety and landscape design. Monets Garden at the New York Botanical Garden evokes Monets lush garden at Giverny, the impressionists home from 1883 until his death in 1926. A passionate gardener who once declared, I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers, Monet found endless inspiration from his exuberant gardens. The water garden alone accounts for some 250 paintings, including a series of monumental canvases that led to his Grandes Decorations at the Musee de dOrangeries in Paris. His flower garden is featured in at least 40 works. The exhibition, which runs through Oct. 21, will feature a seasonally changing display of flora, currently a spring kaleidoscope of poppies, roses, floxgloves, irises and delphiniums inside the botanical gardens Enid A. Haupt Conservancy. It also includes two scarcely seen garden-inspired paintings, Monets wooden palette, rare photos of Monet in his garden and 30 photographs of Giverny by Elizabeth Murray, who has recorded Monets flower oasis for 25 years. These are all located at the botanical gardens LuEsther T. Mertz Library. A facade of Monets pink stucco house with its bright green shutters a historically accurate replica by Tony Award-winning set designer Scott Park marks the start of the exhibition. From there, visitors are led down the Grand Allee, a shorter recreation of Monets rose-covered trellis pathway lined on both sides with thick beds of vibrant flowers. The path opens up to a replica of his famous Japanese footbridge arching over a water lily pool encircled by willow trees and flowering shrubs. He could stand at his doorstep, as you can in this recreation, and look down the allee to the Japanese bridge in the distance, said the exhibition curator, Monet scholar Paul Hayes Tucker. Since we know what flowers he planted, we can be very accurate historically, Tucker said. It is only a fraction of his undertaking but, nonetheless, an enormously rich and extensive fraction that will hopefully encourage people to learn more about him and if one is lucky enough to go to Giverny. In the courtyard outside the Victorian greenhouse, two immense water basins contain a plethora of water lilies. Monet, who made a fortune during his lifetime, was constantly planting, replanting and redesigning his gardens. He would remove the water lilies in the winter so they would survive the cold and then replant them in the spring and summer. Whats wonderful is to think of Monet literally as planting a still life because it is in the end the arrangement of those water lilies that he paints in his pictures. He is constructing his painting, at least part of his painting, as he replants the pond, Tucker said, adding that the job of one of Monets gardeners was to dunk the lilies so the pads would glisten. Summer months will see yellow and orange blossoms of nasturtiums, and lavenders, lilies and geraniums will fill the conservancy. In September and October, they will be replaced with chrysanthemums, salvia, sunflowers, asters, sages, dahlias and other fall flowers. Among the rare artifacts in the exhibition are two paintings of his garden executed by the artist 15 years apart. The Artists Garden in Giverny, on loan from the Yale University Art Gallery, was painted around the year 1900 and shows his flower garden with a dense arrangement of irises and decorative trees. Irises, painted during World War I, is darker and moodier. On loan from a private Swiss collection and never before shown in the United States, it depicts a corner of the water garden that is replete with irises. In a nearby glass case is one of Monets paint-encrusted palettes, a place where literally the hand and the eye come together and where that mysterious poetic moment of realization takes place, Tucker said. Its on loan from the Musee MarmottanMonet in Paris.Giverny in NYC Birthday A raise in status is a strong likelihood for you in the year ahead.

Maidhof had the answers in Citrus I t is hard not to have a very emotional response to the death of Gary Maidhof. The 54-year-old father, husband and county worker died last Sunday while vacationing in Idaho with his wife. The loss to the family must be devastating beyond belief. The loss to Citrus County can hardly be measured. Gary Maidhof worked for county government since 1990, and before that with the countys environmental health department. In my view, he was the smartest guy in county government. You might be able to find someone with more advanced college degrees or a higher IQ, but you wouldnt find anyone with a better ability to put together knowledge and common sense to find solutions to critical problems. During those three decades, he became the go-to guy for anyone who wanted to know anything about county government. In Citrus Countys growth years, Maidhof was the head of the countys development department. An avowed environmentalist, he understood his role working with developers and businesspeople and eventually won the respect of all involved. If he had a political agenda, it was to do the right thing. It should be no surprise he was a Boy Scout and a Scoutmaster. Citrus County has had too many county administrators and county commissioners to even count since Gary Maidhof joined the staff, but to each and every one he lent his experience and advice. Even when a previous county commission employed a totally unqualified person as county administrator, Maidhof came forward to lend all the assistance he could. Over the years, I have had almost every attorney, developer and county commissioner in town call me up to yell and scream that Gary Maidhof was making them follow the rules. And then over a period of time, I had almost every one of those critics tell me how terrific Gary Maidhof was and what a great job he was doing. If he had a fault, it was that he was too nice to his employees. And yes, he wore the ugliest ties in the whole county. It was like he was constantly searching for really ugly ties. If he had a secret weapon, it was that he never forgot anything. He helped write the countys original comprehensive plan and he wrote the countys Land Development Code. He was an encyclopedia of information about roads, sewer systems, water projects, development proposals, birds, coastlines, springs, controversial barns and most anything about local government. Most people would be bored to tears reading storm water runoff regulations. Gary Maidhof wrote them.

The King Springs comp lex is not flowing. A watery report card: Legacy F D AN H ILLIARD Special to the ChronicleK udos to the Citrus County ChronicleEditorial Board! The boards consistent and positive position regarding water resource management as illustrated in the May 25 editorial is a fresh breeze for the Nature Coast! The message is being echoed by a growing number of residents and organizations throughout the state, and a very simple message it is: We have a water crisis on our hands and we expect the state Legislature and regulatory agencies to find remedies before we pass the point of no return. Water is critically important to our lives in so many ways, yet we take it for granted. It is more than a facilitator of clean dishes, cars and wetted lawns. It is the fundamental foundation of our lives, our economy, our food supply and recreation. According to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, water contributed more than $600 billion to the states gross product in 2008. It generates tens of millions of dollars to the Citrus County economy annually by virtue of tourism and recreational activity. It is the goose that laid the golden egg! There are certain paradigms about water that are inescapable. Regardless of the supply of water in Florida, it is a finite resource. There are two metrics that sharply influence the benefit of this resource to the people via the many ways it supports us. One is quantity and the other is quality. Florida relies on water from regional aquifers for approximately 90 percent of its water supply. We pump more than 7 billion gallons per day from the ground and anticipate an increase of that figure to more than 9 billion gallons per day by 2025. In doing so, the level of the aquifer is reduced incrementally. Recharge is wholly dependent on rainfall. As aquifer levels fall, springs throughout the state flow with less vigor. Given circumstances such as high volumes of groundwater pumping and prolonged drought, they may cease to flow altogether. Neither circumstance is desirable. As the aquifer levels decline, lakes and rivers dry up, and this is also undesirable because the degraded resource results in diminished economic productivity. These things happen not because the gross supply of groundwater is greatly diminished, but because we are using and losing supply from the top of the water mountain that is our aquifer. This is the part of the aquifer so critically important. Inefficient use and drought can combine to create the perfect storm of conflicted interests. Concurrent with water quantity is the issue of water quality. While science examines these aspects separately, they are intrinsically linked. A trite turn of phrase has it that the solution to pollution is dilution. Lacking quantity, there is no dilution. Lacking dilution, we are left with increased concentrations of pollutants, which imply degradation of biological productivity and risks to human health. The message that follows is not pretty. It is the federal report card that evaluates how well our laws and resulting management practices work. It is the telling of how effectively the people of Florida are represented by the Florida Legislature and water management agencies. It is the tale of what we have done to ourselves. The source is the Watershed Assessment, Tracking & Environmental Results for 2010 as published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in administration of the Clean Water Act. Folks, we are at a crossroads. It is clearly demonstrated that past practices have failed the people of the state badly. We cannot continue on this course without severe consequences to our health and economic prosperity. We have the power, but not the right, to pass these problems on to the next generation. The cost of recovering degraded water quality and destroyed ecosystems is staggering. The cost of depending on reclaimed or highly treated water for beneficial supply is daunting, and in some cases may rise to 1,000 percent of groundwater costs for treatment and distribution. Our persistence in abuse of groundwater supply is fraught with hazards and promises great expense if we do not find a better way to protect the resource and more efficient ways to use it. There is no other choice. You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality. Ayn Rand (1905-1982). Dan Hilliard is director of Withacoochee Area Residents Inc.

Guest COLUMN Raise water rates in Crystal River D R KC NAYFIELD Special to the ChronicleWhen it comes to water quality in Kings Bay, the 500-pound gorilla in the room is spring flow, which comes directly from the aquifer. It seems like no one wants to address this issue, since it might mean changes in lifestyles as a result of strict water conservation rules. The bay is showing evidence of salt water intrusion. Salinity is up to the point that barnacles are present on most dock pilings and even those of Spring Run Bridge. The lack of spring flow decreases the amount of filtered spring water entering the bay and decreases the flushing effect, thus promoting algae growth. The current drought has contributed to the problem. Climate change, in my opinion, has resulted in a 2.4-inch rise in the bays water level during the past 30 years, as documented by the Southwest Florida Water Management District, which attributes that to a rise in the sea level. Likewise, the tremendous population growth of the county, golf course development, and commercial development have increased the pumping from the aquifer, causing less water to flow to the springs. Couple this with wetlands destruction and the creation of impervious surfaces with storm water running off instead of recharging, and one can appreciate that much of the water quality issue is manmade. So this is why I am strongly in favor of the Crystal River City Council raising water consumption rates. It should also be done responsibly. The conservation scale should be a lot steeper. That is, the rates should be low for people who use the minimal amounts but should be very high for those who are using extreme amounts. Sometimes it takes an economic incentive to create a conservation incentive. Increase them so the budget is not only balanced, but to make a surplus. These additional funds could be used to make the city of Crystal River the poster child for water conservation in the state. We have the most to gain. Our bay depends on spring flow. Our multimillion-dollar per year tourist industry depends on the bay. We can either pay a bit more for water now or lose the tourist dollars and be forced to pay more in taxes later. We also lose more money when our home values depreciate due to our sick water body. Setting an example for water conservation would perhaps involve retrofitting all city buildings with low-flush toilets and waterless urinals. City properties should be xeriscaped and rain barrels installed for watering, as a couple of ideas. Additionally some of the funding could be parlayed into grants for larger projects since the most critical areas of a springshed are those adjacent to the springs. We should remodel some parking lots to have effective drainage retention areas for recharge. Certain properties could be purchased and returned to wetlands for more recharge, as well. More funding could be applied to water reuse projects, such as the pipeline to the Progress Energy facility, to help eliminate more groundwater pumping. It is past time for us to get tough and serious about cleaning up Kings Bay. It is past time that we stop monkeying around.

HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member REMARKABLE MAN Maidhof death a big loss to community G ary Maidhofs unexpected death last Sunday has left a substantial void in Citrus County, along with heavy hearts among the countless people he advised, inspired and amused. The positions hes held in county government from environmental planner to senior planner to Development Services director to his final job as operations and projects manager exposed Gary to the intricacies of Citrus County. Exposure is one thing. It was his unbridled passion for the subject matter that enabled him to become a human encyclopedia when it comes to all things Citrus. As an extension of that passion, he welcomed opportunities to share his insights and to inform the curious whether as an official at the office, in meetings with civic groups or in casual conversation. As an individual, Gary debunked the connotation that comes with the term bureaucrat, finding the fun in using his database-like brain to assist others. However, his government role was but one aspect in a well-rounded life. He was a dedicated Scoutmaster, a founding and steadfast member of Citrus 2020 and, in that capacity, a key organizer of Save Our Waters Week. Prior to starting with county government in 1990, Gary received his degree from the University of Florida in zoology, worked as a biological technician for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, then spent nearly a decade with the Florida Department of Environmental Health in Citrus County. In 1985, while still employed by the state, he was among those who crafted the first county comprehensive plan. While his profile in county government was significant, there were subtleties unique to his character. He worked behind the scenes to foster communication and understanding in delicate situations; he was generous. yet sought no recognition; and he had a collection of really peculiar neckties that left those unfamiliar with his humor scratching their heads. Gary Maidhof, 54, leaves his wife, Charlotte, two sons and an untold number of friends. The funeral service will be private, but arrangements are being made for a public memorial service, possibly next weekend. Details will be published. Gary Maidhof died Sunday, May 20, after a nature hike in Idaho. He takes with him an incomprehensible amount of institutional knowledge about Citrus County. Yet he leaves a Citrus County thats a better place, thanks to his time here. THE ISSUE: Death of Gary Maidhof.OUR OPINION: He was one of a kind. Good decision Thank you, Dennis Damato. I appreciate that you faced reality and voted against funding the SBDC because I think youre right. They should have been trying to keep the local businesses going but whats happened is people are out of touch with reality and theres so many people out there that are still out of work. This is not the time to start a new business. This is a time to try to hang on to business and you have been a voice of reason.Treatment of speakersIn reference to the rejection of the county to continue partially funding the Small Business Development Center (SBDC): Now the county commissioners have every right to vote their conscience. That was what they were elected to do. I have no problem with that. My question is, in giving their opinion as to how they voted, some commissioners seem to admonish some presenters. Sadly, this is not the first Ive heard this. I do not know Joe Meek. I have never met Joe Meek. I said it once and Ill say it again: Folks, we have a winner.Thanks for votes Thank you, Rebecca Bays and Commissioner Winn Webb, for voting against the SBDC because I think we need to consolidate things and do something thats really evidencebased, like (Dennis) Damato said. A lot of these programs that were reading about in the paper, with people going off on junkets, (are) just irritating the taxpayers the ones of us that are still working. I have so many family members that have been out of work now for several years and some of them have just given up. I mean they say theyre still looking, but theyre just giving up and they cant afford to move away and they would if they could. Right on targetMy wife and I watched the BOCC meeting on TV when SBDC asked for $32,000, (for) which they were rejected. We were very impressed with Commissioner (Dennis) Damatos in-depth understanding of the problems the small businesses are having staying afloat. We totally agree with him and Commissioner Bays, that numbers are numbers, just that. Show us the results. THE CHRONICLEinvites you to call Sound Off with your opinions about any subject.

The interpretation of its function may have been obfuscated by the closures of Sears, Tugs and the Serenity Day Spa; however, out-of-state corporate decisions, the economy and solid competition were beyond anything the SBDC could have done to prevent their closings. I work for a local community bank whereby our mission is to help Citrus County domiciled companies succeed with their businesses by providing capital (loans) and depository products if they are credit qualified. Our bank has referred to and has been referred by the SBDC on three different occasions. The SBDC acted as a consultant and provided financial advice for these companies. One company we were able to help immediately by providing a line of credit that enabled them to take on more business and hire two more technicians. All the analytics regarding these companies were overseen and evaluated by the Certified Business Analyst who works for the SBDC and his input was invaluable to us regarding our decision-making. The service provided by the SBDC for the clients and our bank was beneficial to all involved and an example of how the SBDC provides a necessary service, which may not always be reported to the county.Paul V.

Peter Pan the musical, 1954 WAUWATOSA, Wis. T his state, the first to let government employees unionize, was an incubator of progressivism and gave birth (in 1932 in Madison, the precursor of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees) to its emblematic institution, the government employees union government organized as a special interest to lobby itself to expand itself. But Wisconsin progressivism is in a dark Peter Pan phase; it is childish without being winsome. Wisconsin has produced populists of the left (Robert La Follette) and right (Joe McCarthy). On Tuesday, in this years second-most important election, voters will judge the attempt by a populism of the privilegedwhite-collar labor unions whose members live comfortably above the American medianto recall Republican Gov. Scott Walker. In this Milwaukee suburb, a proWalker phone bank is conducting mobilization, not persuasion. Is any voter undecided? For 16 months, Wisconsin, normally a paragon of Midwestern neighborliness, has been riven by furious attempts to punish Walker for keeping his campaign promise to change the states unsustainable fiscal trajectory driven by the perquisites of government employees. His progressive adversaries have, however, retreated from their original pretext for attempting to overturn the election Walker won handily just 19 months ago. He defeated Mayor Tom Barrett of Milwaukee. A recall is a gubernatorial election, and the Democrats May primary was won by ... Barrett. In 2010, government employees unions campaigned against Walkers and 12 plan. It requires government employees to contribute 5.8 percent of their pay to their pension plans. (Most were paying less than 1 percent. Most private-sector workers have no pensions; those who do pay, on average, much more than 5.8 percent.) Walkers reform requires government employees to pay 12.6 percent of their health care premiums (up from 6 percent but still less than the 21 percent private-sector average). Defeated in 2010, the unions now are demanding, as frustrated children do after losing a game, Lets start over! Like children throwing a tantrum against the rules of a game going badly, in 2011 petulant Wisconsin Democratic legislators fled to Illinois to disrupt the Legislature. Walkers reforms included restricting the issues subject to collective bargaining. This emancipated school districts from buying teachers health insurance from a provider entity associated with the teachers union. Barrett used Walkers reform to save Milwaukee $19 million. In justifying a raucous resistance to, and then this recall of, Walker, the government employees unions stressed his restriction of collective bargaining rights. But in the May primary, these unions backed the candidate trounced by Barrett, who is largely ignoring the collective bargaining issue, perhaps partly because most worker protections are embedded in Wisconsins uniquely strong civil service law. Besides, what really motivates the unions and elected Democrats is that Walker ended the automatic deduction of union dues from government employees pay. The experience in Colorado, Indiana, Utah and Washington state is that when dues become voluntary, they become elusive. So, Barrett is essentially running another general election campaign, not unlike that of 2010 except that the $3.6 billion deficit Walker inherited has disappeared and property taxes have declined. By re-posing the 2010 choice, Wisconsin progressives one-word platform becomes: Mulligan! The emblem displayed at some anti-Walker centers is an outline of Wisconsin rendered as a clenched fist, with a red star on the heel of the hand. Walkers disproportionately middle-aged adversaries know the red star symbolized murderous totalitarianism, yet they flaunt it as a progressive ornament. Why? Because it satisfies the sandbox socialists childish pleasure in naughtiness, as does their playground name-calling (Walker is a Midwest Mussolini) and infantile point-scoring: When the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel endorsed Walker, Wisconsins Democratic Party chair fulminated that six decades ago the Sentinel (which merged with the Journal in 1995) supported McCarthy. Also, many backward-looking baby boomers want to recapture their youthful fun of waving clenched fists in the face of privilege. Now, embarrassingly, they are privileged. A January poll found even 17 percent of Democrats think recalls are justified only by criminal behavior, not policy differences. If, however, Walker loses, regular Wisconsin elections will henceforth confer only evanescent legitimacy. If he wins, progressives will have inadvertently demonstrated that entrenched privilege can be challenged, and they will have squandered huge sums that cannot finance progressive causes elsewhere. So, for a change, progressives will have served progress. George Wills email address is georgewill@washpost.com.

Response to Water threat exaggerated column by Dr. William Dixon from May 27, 2012. I t is very good that some of our local citizens submitted responses to the recent opinion article, Floridas water resources / The good, the bad and the ugly in the May 20, 2012, edition of the Chronicle There really needs to be extensive public discussion and review of this topic regarding our water resources. It is absolutely correct, as stated in the Water threat exaggerated column of May 27 that there should be great concern about the 20-fold presence of nitrate levels (less than 1.0 mg/l)) in Silver Springs versus background levels (.05 mg/l). The fact is, nitrates have increased dramatically in many springs in Florida, not just Silver Springs, and they are a major threat to spring and groundwater quality. With the negative changes occurring over the past two years in our state leaders environmental awareness, we need a few alarmists too bad there wasnt an alarmist around a couple of years ago when very poor decisions were made in the Gulf of Mexico on an oil platform; it is a shame that some job-killing regulator didnt see this coming and prevent it. We all know the details of this environmental disaster and the negative impact on jobs, tourism, and state revenues in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Talk about stifling economic growth! At last count BP Oil has ponied up $20 billion to cover definable impacts to our economy and environment. An alarmist would have been good in the 1960s and 1970s when the Tampa Bay area pumped so much groundwater from the Floridan Aquifer that lakes, wetlands, and streams experienced dramatic declines. Saltwater intrusion became a legitimate and scientifically observed concern. Too much groundwater pumping migrated outside of the Tampa Bay area to surrounding, more rural counties. It took a Florida judge in the 1990s to stop the overpumping and require the region to embrace major conservation programs along with alternative water sources such as desalination and large surface water reservoirs. The cost to overcome these excessive groundwater pumping issues was over a billion dollars paid for by Florida citizens and federal grants. One would assume a medical doctor would have serious concerns about a human patient who developed a high white blood cell count, a very low heart rate, and high blood pressure over, lets say, a 10-year period. But in recent months, while the patient was under a lot of stress, the heart rate went to its lowest rate in the patients 80year life span. Sounds a lot like Silver Springs flow rate at lowest level in its 80year record. Yes, there is the stress of a drought, but the spring experienced droughts in the past without such a significant impact to its flow. High nitrates, loss of game fish, deteriorating water quality this patient, Silver Springs, is sick and we, the public, should be very concerned. Its not just Silver Springs where these symptoms are now occurring ask residents along the spring-fed Crystal, Homosassa, Santa Fe and Chassahowitzka rivers if they have seen any changes in recent decades in their rivers flow pattern and/or water quality. So, should the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) now allow a cattle and slaughter house operation to pump more large water quantities (as much as the city of Ocala currently uses on an average day and twice that on a maximum day!) from the Silver Springs springshed? Should there now be introduced even more nitrogen loading to the local terrain, well known for direct geologic connections to the Floridan Aquifer (30,000 head of cattle can generate nitrogen-laden wastes equivalent to a mid-sized city)? Not wise! While it is true this permit request does not reach the level of the incredibly damaging Gulf of Mexico oil spill of 2010, it does represent the proverbial tip of the iceberg. Issuance of this permit, as it has been presented, opens the door for others in already stressed areas to apply for use of similar quantities of water so that we dont stifle economic growth and trample private property rights. The Floridan Aquifer, the hydrologic cycle and Floridas water laws, are not as simplistic as outlined in the Water threat exaggerated column. The writer fails to take into account the ground-water uses already occurring in our state to the tune of some 4 billion gallons a day. The Floridan Aquifer is not a huge, homogeneous vessel of water. In this part of Florida, springsheds distinct within the aquifer feed the particular spring. Silver Springs receives its water recharge from an area of approximately 1,200 square miles not 100,000 square miles. Rainbow, Wekiva, Homosassa, Chassahowitzka, Kings, Manatee, Alexander, Juniper, et al (more than 900 springs, in Florida), and most receive their recharge, and therefore generate their discharge levels, from their specific springshed. Actually, the statement most of the water will be returned directly to the aquifer after it has been used for irrigation is absolutely wrong. Most water from rain and/or irrigation is lost to evapotranspiration (average evapotranspiration of 39 inches if the total average annual rainfall is 52 inches). More of this water goes to runoff, leaving a small percentage that actually re-enters the aquifer. And the statement that contaminants generated by fertilizers, livestock and humans will be filtered by the soil does not ring true, considering Floridas typically sandy soils and common occurrence of direct connections to the aquifer through sinkholes. No one will rationally declare that everything in natural Florida should somehow be reversed to its undisturbed, pre-Columbian character and that we should deny industry, public supply and agriculture their reasonable and beneficial use of water as currently provided in the Florida statutes. The right answer here is to utilize the water responsibly. By the way, this approach usually creates more jobs, and invests more for our long-term future how about for our kids and grandchildren? Two alternatives for how Florida could manage its water resources have been clearly exposed here: One view is that private property rights and jobs generated should be the deciding factors on how much water one could extract from our limited resources. Or, we can responsibly provide water to users based on their reasonable and beneficial needs, whether the use is in the public interest and whether the new use will interfere with existing legal users this as currently outlined in the Florida Statutes, Chapter 373. Voters will have this choice in elections conducted in this state: to choose between leaders who stand by responsible use of our limited resources; or leaders whose priority is to create jobs with little regard for the future of our states resources and longterm health. This is where we are, folks. Consider attending an upcoming event June 23 at the Silver River State Park near Ocala. Silver Springs and its future health will be discussed there by our former Florida governor and U.S. senator, Bob Graham, and several other experts on this topic. This is important!

While she is much younger than Esther was then and I am now, I consider Nancy Kennedy to be todays grande dame of writers at the Chronicle ; even so, most recently I found myself cringing at one of the conclusions drawn in a piece she had written after interviewing various local schoolteachers. I agreed with almost everything in the article, things such as being careful when using the words I and me and saying I could care less, when the obvious intent is to say I couldnt care less, but for her to speak of aint with disdain troubled me. Even though what was said was certainly in line with conventional wisdom that is, thataint ainta word except in colloquial usage and should never be used in business or formal writing its denigration was still bothersome. The use of correct grammar is of extreme importance to me. Even though more often than Id like, a mistake will slip through, I extend a considerable amount of effort to keep such errors out of my work. I mentally diagram sentences; and, very often, Ill rewrite an entire statement to avoid a usage I know is technically correct, but which sounds awkward. Furthermore, Cheryl reviews and edits every manuscript before I submit it to the Chronicles staff for a final, formal edit. In this modern era, I make use of the computerized help such as spell-check. Nonetheless, I also keep two printed volumes on my desk the Bible and Mr. Websters dictionary. No, as far as I know, aint isnt used in the Bible, but it is in the dictionary. To my chagrin, Mr. Websters folks use approximately 30 words to define what I believe to be the most foul word in the English language, an unequally vulgar four-letter word I would never use in any form, but its still considered a full-fledged member of the family of recognized words. On the other hand, they use approximately 170 words to define and discuss aint, which is a harmless, quite useful grouping of letters whose main offense seems to be that it is popular in the southern portion of these United States, yet in the end, it isnt given word status. Enough kidding and philosophizing. Nancys recent offering in Stuff You Should Know was well done. She and the teachers did an excellent job of helping people better understand the value of using correct grammar. I dont want to shoot the messengers they did nothing more or less than pass along the presently accepted rules. But, as it pertains to aint, the message itself still steams me. Esther was partial to popcorn. And, as a fully documented, fifth-generation Florida cracker, I have an affinity for aint. Fred Brannen is an Inverness resident and a Chronicle columnist. Fred Brannen A SLICE OF LIFE Gary Kuhl GUEST COLUMN Dangerous wave of the future A L G RUBMAN Special to the ChronicleW e have fought the water wars. We have had victories large and small. We have ridden buses and made model pipes. We have challenged government loudly and reasonably. We have had elected representatives who were allies and some who were enemies. We have learned a lot but the water gobblers and water miners are using new weapons and tactics. Now they are not just trying to get our water. A Canadian billionaire car parts magnate and Marion County horseman apparently thinks he needs more money. A billionaire has more than a thousand millions; I guess that ought to be enough to keep most folks comfy. He has gathered 30,000 acres on which to raise, slaughter and butcher cattle. I understand he will keep about 30,000 head on the Adena Springs Ranch. But, he does not want much from us as long as you dont live close enough to smell the droppings or the slaughter house. He even has a plan for the nitrogen that washes into the aquifer he is going to suck out so much water from the aquifer that he may bring back the droppings/nitrogen so they will not contaminate the groundwater. He has requested a permit to take an average of 13.3 million gallons per day and much more when it is dry like now. He wants to take the water from the springshed of the Silver Springs and Silver River; as much water as the whole city of Ocala combined uses in a day. You may already know that Silver Springs flow has deteriorated to an 80-year low; it is already threatened. Tourism and recreation generate an estimated $60 million per year. These days when a representative of a project claims that it will generate many jobs it brings political attention. Some claims have gone as high as 100 jobs, although many doubt that the numbers are anywhere near that high. My local newspaper, theCitrus County Chronicle, asked, Does employing a handful of cattle ranchers offset the environmental impact this decision would have on Silver Springs? Think a minute; even if the number of potential jobs was 100, would it be worth losing the $60 million? This is only one spring system. Like (heck) it is! It sets a precedent. It will put another name on the list of dead environmental gems. If we do not fight this one, it will be a continuation of the old salami game. If you will not fight for this piece of salami or that piece, soon there will be nothing left but the string and then it is too late. What can we do? Here are three things. Vote for the people who will support what you want done. Shout out to government.

Letters to the EDITOR Romney rebuttal (Re: Romney represents opportunity, Dr. William Dixon, Page C3, May 6.) Dr. Dixon has his work cut out for him trying to convince voters Mitt Romney will stick to any campaign promises or that he even believes in them. It must be difficult for an ultra-conservative, tea party speaker such as Dr. Dixon to try to put a positive spin on Romneys credentials as a conservative. Romney goes whichever way the wind blows. The question is, what kind of decisions will he make if he is elected president? Romney was born into wealth, similar to the Kennedy family, and, like them, showed he had compassion for people when he signed the Romney health bill. Being wealthy certainly doesnt make people bad people. Unfortunately, the compassion he showed for those who were without health care in his state does not fit the ideology of those he needs to support him in his quest to become president. He, therefore, follows their dictates and criticizes the Obama health plan that is virtually the same as the one he approved as governor of Massachusetts. The only complimentary distinctions Dr. Dixon had for Romney was that he has a wonderful family, has not been involved in any embarrassing situations and has world economic experience. His business qualifications are questionable, however, since his company apparently shut down companies for profit. Unfortunately, much more is required to become an effective president. He is completely lacking in the area of foreign affairs. Romney has criticized President Obama on every foreign issue even when he didnt have the facts. His immediate response regarding the Iran nuclear issue was to consider bombing them. Which president does this remind you of? He is also lacking in character. At a primary function he made no comment when the crowd booed a young gay soldier. At another function he did not respond to a woman who stated President Obama should be tried for treason. Recently, he gave no support to one of his own advisers replaced because he was gay. If he doesnt have the guts to confront unfortunate incidents such as these, how can he be trusted to handle other serious issues? Larry Sparks Homosassa SBDC funding a waste I was pleased to see Commissioners Damato, Webb and Bays reject the continued funding for the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). I have always been an advocate of controlled growth and small business development. Being a small business owner, I realize the importance small businesses play in our national economy, and how many lives depend on their existence. However, my experience with the SBDC was not pleasant. I was early for an appointment in Homosassa a few months ago and decided to stop by the SBDC office to see what it was all about. I met the on-site SBDC representative and told him I was a businessman from Atlanta. I told him I was considering opening a call center for my business in either Citrus or Hernando county. If successful, I would look for a larger location, and employ 10 to 12 people. The man could not give me any specifics on the location other than the rent would be $200 a month and include some services. He said no one had made inquiries about the office in a few months and he was not sure of the details. He took me into his office and showed me the county website, telling me I should contact the county. I asked him if Citrus County was business friendly. I was astounded when he replied that it is getting better, but there are counties more business friendly than Citrus. He went on to say, Citrus County may not be what you are looking for to open a business. At this point, he said he was late for a meeting and walked me to the door. He did not ask for contact information. I spoke with two commissioners about this experience with the SBDC. Both were very concerned about the image the SBDC office was portraying, and the unprofessional manner in which I was treated. However, one of the commissioners I spoke with voted to continue funding for this project. Again, thanks to Commissioners Damato, Webb and Bays for eliminating this expense and waste of money.Bernie Leven Citrus Springs ON THE NET Letters to the editor are archived at www.chronicleonline.com after being published in the Chronicle

Keep going Id like to have an answer to whats going on on Turner Camp Road and why the resurfacing of the road went on about two miles and stopped. The whole road needs resurfacing. Is there some kind of development going on where they sold that big bunch of property? If that was the reason, I think thats just plain wrong. That whole road needs resurfacing.Tips yes, tip jars noIm calling in reference to the tip situation that was discussed a few days back. This business about leaving a tip for a waitress or a waiter at the table is wonderful, I think. Im all for it. But this business of walking up to a register and somebody reaching over and handing you a box, taking your money and having a tip jar right at the register, I dont think that we owe anybody anything for just handing us a box and taking our money. What do you think?Dawsys done good Regarding the article in the Citrus County Chronicle on Wednesday, May 23, about the bashing of Sheriff Dawsy. You people need to get your facts straight. This is the best thing thats ever happened to this county. This man is the most honest and reliable person the sheriffs office could want. Think of all the positive things hes doing for this county, not only just with the sheriffs department but with now bringing Citrus Fire Rescue under his belt. You people need to ride along and observe what goes on with the sheriffs department 24/7, like I have, and 24/7, like I have, with the fire rescue and youll have a better understanding of the picture. So get your facts straight.Sidewalks needed We dont need U.S. 19 widened from Crystal River south past Homosassa. We need sidewalks. Theres too many children waiting for school buses and too many bicyclists out having to ride on the street. We dont need six lanes of traffic. We need sidewalks.Pet identification I cannot understand why people buy expensive dogs, raise them, but do not put adequate identification on them. I had a dog yesterday that wandered into my neighborhood. I had it in my house eight hours. I could not find anything on it that told me where she came from and I had to call the sheriffs (office). She was a beautiful dog, very intelligent, trained, but why couldnt her owners buy a collar and put her name and phone number in indelible ink on it? Its such a shame to put a dog through this. It wandered away from home and I dont think it will ever find its owners, and the owners dont seem interested in finding it.Wal-Mart worksIm very glad to see that they built another Wal-Mart in Homosassa and another large one is being built as we speak in Lecanto. This gives people a lot of chances to go back to work. I feel very sorry for these people looking for work. Im glad to see that Wal-Mart is building stores all over. Thank you, Wal-Mart.Medicaid criteria Could anybody out there thats on Medicaid tell me what your monthly income or your yearly income is to be to qualify for Medicaid? Im 75 years old and I was just wondering about insurance and so forth. Price breakThank you, Mr. Obama, for finally lowering the gas prices a little bit. No controlPeople, the president does not control the price of gasoline. You got it?LudicrousTo the person who wrote in to Sound Off thinking we should praise Obama for bringing the price of gasoline down when we reprimanded him for the price going up: If this person thinks that Obama himself lowered the price of the gasoline all by himself with one stroke of a pen, Ive got a bridge in Brooklyn Ill sell this person real cheap. If they want to call the paper and get my number, Ill be glad to sell it to them because that is the most ludicrous thing Ive ever heard in my life. He spoke to most every civic, community and fraternal organization in the county. He could speak to a crowded conference room of 200 people or to a group of four at the back end of a pickup truck. He loved the detail. He could recall most anything. He educated a generation of county administrators and county commissioners. He would volunteer for any job that came along. And he loved Citrus County. He came to work every day believing that he was playing a role in making our community a better place to live. Gary Maidhof had been around forever, and I thought he always would be. And suddenly hes not. Our sympathies to his family. And to the community. Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle.

A s children, weve all heard our parents or another adult say, I told you so. This comment usually came as the result of something we did that did not turn out well, or failed. Even though an adult may have offered advice to do something a certain way, we chose to do it our way and it backfired. So much for not listening to experience. Been there, done that is a derivative of I told you so. SCORE, with its commitment to helping small businesses start or grow, offers the voice of experience. Experience is our single most important asset. Experience matters. SCORE: the strength of many When small business people come to SCORE, they tap into our most valuable asset: experience. Our Certified Business Mentors have spent years in business. Individually and collectively, they are prepared to offer seasoned and proven advice. Even if a client has some business experience, its highly improbable one person can know all there is to know. SCORE has the capacity to bring in several counselors to improve a clients mentoring process. Its called cocounseling. When a clients business needs so indicate, SCORE mentors are expected to enlist the advice of other certified mentors to help the client. Our mentors are conversant with business disciplines, such as: accounting, human resource management, marketing, management, sales and distribution services. And, best of all, our expertise doesnt end there. Great results come from a comprehensive approach to counseling. As our economy improves Now is an excellent time to take advantage of the SCORE mentoring program. With the economy beginning to grow again, albeit slowly, now is the time to expand that existing business. Most of the Certified Business Mentors have been there, done that. Our mentoring services will only cost your time and attention to what we know and, of course, your willingness to make it work. It will work, if you work it. What we cant do for you Oftentimes, our clients view us as consultants. We are not consultants. Consultants get paid for their expertise, SCORE mentors volunteer at no compensation. Consultants sometimes become employees, shareholders or investors in the business they help. SCORE mentors are not allowed, under a very strong code of ethics, to derive financial benefit, directly or indirectly, from our services. Each year, SCORE mentors sign a lengthy document that spells out, in detail, our obligations with respect to conflict of interest. We agree to avoid any situation that may not be in the best interests of our client. What we will do for you SCORE mentors help clients make good business decisions based on our understanding of what we know works. This philosophy of client-centered counseling encourages the clients to do research and planning with our support. What SCORE attempts to accomplish with this counseling method is to provide each client with an awareness that they have the power to be successful. This is our gift to them. SCORE is available at no charge for those who seek help with their business. Our office hours are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday to Thursday. Call 352-249-1236. If you call during non-business hours, leave enough information so we can call you back. Dr. Frederick J. Herzog is chairman of Citrus County SCORE. Email fherzog@tampabay.rr.com. Sell home, then rent? D EAR BRUCE: My husband and I will sell our home soon and have decided not to purchase another home but to rent. My husband is 72 years old, and I am 69. Our profit will be below $200,000, and we wonder if we will have to pay a penalty for not reinvesting in another home. We are going to invest any profit we make. C.B., via email DEAR C.B.: Not to worry. The entire $200,000 profit on your primary home is free from any federal tax. You say youre going to invest any profit you make lots of luck with that. The troublesome part, as I have repeated so many times, is that right now $200,000 is not going to earn much interest in a savings account. I think you would be better off investing it in the stock market and in some solid bonds that can be added to your existing portfolio. For folks of your age, renting rather than buying bears consideration for a variety of reasons I have expounded upon many times. Move slowly with your $200,000 and get used to the idea that, unless you are prepared to take a degree of risk, your return will be next to nonexistent. DEAR BRUCE: My mother has recently entered a nursing home. I was under the impression she would be taken care of by our government, as I thought the money she has in an account was protected. The account has my name on it, as well. I have been informed by the nursing home that this money she has saved will have to be used for her care. Is there any way we can save any of that money for her heirs? T.B., via email DEAR T.B.: I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Im afraid the answer is no. If the money had been given to you and any siblings prior to the look-back period before your mom required the care, some of the money could have been preserved. However, if transfers are made within the lookback period, it is believed people are impoverishing themselves deliberately so government programs will kick in. It is a sorry situation when a lifetime of savings, accumulated because of prudent living, can be devastated in a short time. But until the system is revised, thats the way it works.

Bruce Williams SMART MONEY B USINESS Section D SUNDAY, JUNE 3, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Dr. Frederick Herzog ASK SCORE SCORE: Experience matters in business Help wanted? US employers waiting, watching before hiring J ONATHANF AHEY AP Business Writers NEW YORKB usiness has picked up. Yet American companies are too nervous to step up hiring. The economy seems so gripped by uncertainties that many employers have decided to manage with the staff they have. They arent convinced their customer demand will keep growing. Or they worry Europes festering debt crisis could infect the global economy. Or they arent sure what Congress will do, if anything, about taxes and spending in coming months. All that helps explain why U.S. employers added just 69,000 jobs in May, the fewest in a year and the third straight month of weak job growth. If youre anxious, you sit on your hands, said Chad Moutray, chief economist at the National Association of Manufacturers. The U.S. government is also nearing its debt ceiling. It was just last summer that a bickering Congress rattled markets by nearly allowing the government to default on its debt. State and local spending levels are uncertain or shrinking as governments try to shrink their own debts. The result is smaller budgets for schools, transportation projects and services. Companies also complain that changes in environmental regulations and business subsidies are too hard to predict and plan for. Heres a look at why some individual employers remain hesitant to hire: For many companies that build highways, hiring plans are on hold while Congress debates long-term plans to pay for construction projects. Ive got paving crews that are ready, willing to go to work next week, but I dont have contracts that I can have them go to work on, said Ed Dalyrimple, vice president of Chemung Contracting Corp., based in Elmira, NY. The company, which operates gravel quarries and asphalt plants and does highway and airport runway paving, relies heavily on government work in New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Theres work that needs to be done, but none of the states have authorized it, Dalyrimple said. If you look at the transportation bill in Congress, it just sits there. Jason Speer is nervously watching Congress and possible tax changes as Bush-era income tax cuts near expiration at years end. Hes a vice president of Quality Float Works of Schaumberg, Ill., which makes devices to monitor fluid levels in tanks. Speer said hed feel a lot better about hiring later this year if it werent for the uncertainty about federal taxes. Unable to anticipate his companys costs, Speer said he cant make decisions about growth and hiring. We dont know if theres something around the corner thats going to hurt our business, Speer said. Sales in the United States, the Middle East and South Asia have been strong, he said. And the company expects to grow 15 percent this year. But Europe has been a drag: Sales to the region are down 50 percent to 60 percent this year. The company added two jobs this year, but would have added a third if European sales hadnt suffered. If that business was still what it was, we would have already hired someone to keep up with it, Speer said. NRG Systems, a Hinesburg, Vt., maker of sensors to measure wind speeds for the energy industry, announced in mid-May the first layoffs in its 30-year history. The U.S. wind industry is in the doldrums. Thats because a key renewable-energy subsidy is set to expire later this year, electricity demand is weak and electricity prices are low because of lower natural gas prices. This is the worst its ever been, said Abby White, a company manager. The U.S. market has pretty much dried up. White said the main problem is the future is too cloudy. Without knowing what federal policy will be in place, companies cant plan. The lowest-risk thing to do is to stop altogether, White said. An April survey of 122 technology executives by KPMG found employers werent expecting to expand their payrolls as aggressively this year as they did last year. The main reason: Most of them are bracing for slower revenue growth. The fallout from Europes shaky economy looms as the biggest concern. But slowing economies in Asia are also contributing to a more cautious approach to hiring, said Gary Matuszak of KPMG. Theres not much confidence in the U.S. economy, either. Thirty percent of the survey respondents predicted the economy wont fully regain its health until 2014. Thirty-three percent expect it will be 2015 or later before the economy returns to where it was before the financial meltdown of 2008. Alan Gaynors New York architectural design firm has put off hiring because his real estate clients are uneasy about starting projects in an uncertain global economy. Its a wait-and-see attitude they have, Gaynor said. Everyones a little nervous. The economys growing a lot slower than anyone would have liked. Gaynors firm employs 15, the same as a year ago. He cites gridlock in Congress and the slowing economies in China and India as reasons for his clients insecurity. One client has been on the verge of starting a $30 million project in Manhattan. They have been ready to pull the trigger for six months or longer but theyre not doing, Gaynor said. Gasoline demand in the U.S. has fallen for 62 straight weeks, according to MasterCard Spending Pulse, as drivers commute and travel less. Demand for diesel, used by trucks to ship goods, has also been weak. Until the economy strengthens, there wont be a need for our products, said Bill Day, a spokesman for Valero Energy, a refiner based in San Antonio. Valero isnt cutting jobs. It needs the same number of people to run a refinery, whether its operating at full strength or not. But Day said tighter environmental regulations and permit requirements, along with weak demand, are hindering the companys ability to grow. The sluggish economy has been a factor in Alice Lermans decision not to expand her Chicagoarea pet supplies store, Barker and Meowsky. She hires only when one of her seven full-time and five part-time staffers leave. We really dont know exactly whats going to happen with the economy, Lerman said. Rather than expand her company, she said shes been tilting its focus toward services big-box stores dont provide. She hasnt raised her prices and has even lowered some of them. We cant affect whats going on in the outside, but we can affect whats going on internally, Lerman said. Caring Senior Service is hiring, but not as much as it had expected to, said CEO Jeff Salter. One factor has been high unemployment itself: People who are out of work are taking over caregiving for elderly and sick relatives the company would normally handle. Thats reduced demand for services the company provides at 42 locations in 12 states. Associated Press Job seekers gather Thursday for employment opportunities at the 11th annual Skid Row Career Fair at the Los Angeles Mission in Los Angeles. U.S. employers created 69,000 jobs in May, the fewest in a year, and the unemployment rate ticked up. The dismal jobs figures could fan fears the economy is sputtering.

Capital City has bank-to-bank option CRYSTAL RIVER Capital City Bank announces bank-tobank transfers, a new financial management tool available in the online banking service. Bank-to-bank transfers allow clients using Capital City Bank OnLine to quickly and easily transfer funds between their Capital City Bank personal checking, savings or money market accounts and their personal accounts at other financial institutions. We are proud to offer a service that is on par with regional and national banks and pleased to be one of the first among our local competitors to offer it to our clients, said Capital City Bank President of Citrus/Inglis Kay Wilkes. We are always looking for ways to enhance the banking experience, and bank-to-bank transfers affords our clients greater flexibility, convenience and control as they manage their finances and juggle multiple accounts. Features of the service include the capacity to link up to five external accounts, make up to five daily transfers for a maximum of $3,000. In addition, as with other paperless, electronic banking alternatives, bank-to-bank transfers eliminate the need for paper checks, providing a faster, more environmentally friendly option. Capital City Bank Group Inc. (NASDAQ: CCBG) is one of the largest publicly traded financial services companies headquartered in Florida and has approximately $2.7 billion in assets. The companys bank subsidiary, Capital City Bank, was founded in 1895 and now has 70 banking offices and 74 ATMs in Florida, Georgia and Alabama. For more information about Capital City Bank Group Inc., visit www.ccbg.com.Isaiah Foundation in Citrus CountyIsaiah Foundation has moved to Citrus County. For almost 30 years, the organization has operated out of Yankeetown, where it was founded. In 2000 a sister agency, Childs Play Foundation, began partnering with the Isaiah Foundation in a shared office called Isaiahs Place, first in Inglis and, since 2006, on Harmony Lane across from Yankeetown Hall. Barbara Washburn, executive director of the Isaiah Foundation, said moving into the Citrus Family Center at 719 S. Otis Ave. in Lecanto will centralize the agency by bringing it closer to care providers and families who receive services in their homes. The Isaiah Foundation is one of the programs supported by United Way of Citrus County. Isaiahs Place was originally renovated and leased by the Isaiah Foundation to provide office space for its operation and to provide a safe and protected environment for Childs Play Foundation Inc. to counsel children and their families. The building was named Isaiahs Place for the Bible verse in Isaiah 58:6-10 promising that light will break forth like the dawn, said Penny Phares, clinical director of Childs Play Foundation. Childs Play has now taken over the lease at Isaiahs Place and will remain at 6210 Harmony Lane in Yankeetown. Isaiah Foundation provides respite care for families with children who are developmentally delayed and pivotal response therapy for autistic children and their families. To inquire about these services, call Barbara Washburn at 352-527-0112. To reach Penny Phares, ARNP, about counseling for children and families or training in play therapy, call 352447-1775.

ambitions. For instance, if I want to grow broccoli in the spring, I know its going to take a significant part of my garden. However, I also know that while the full-grown plant may require 2 square feet, its going to take a couple of months before it gets to that size. If I were to plant just those seedlings on their own, there would be a lot of wasted ground left barren around them. By pairing a primary planting like broccoli, kale, brussels sprouts or some other spring-planted, longer-season crop with a secondary springplanted short-season crop like mesclun, baby lettuce greens, radishes or green onions we can maximize the gardening space while helping to keep the grounds moisture level even during the wetter early months and the soil cool as the season progresses. Another benefit is reaped as the longer-season leafy plants grow larger in the early summer sun. While lettuce will bolt as it experiences too much warmth from the longer days, another couple of plantings of tender greens can often be harvested from beneath the shady canopy of the maturing primary plants. Another way of providing partial shade for plants that dont need a full day of sun can be accomplished with taller plants like corn, sunflowers or even vertically grown tomatoes placed throughout the garden in north-south rows. By sowing the taller plants in this orientation, plants on either side of them are offered roughly a half-day of shade. I wish I could say I knew everything there is to know about companion planting, but honestly, I dont see how anyone ever could. Each year brings a new understanding and an opportunity to try a new way of combining different elements of the garden to benefit the plants, attract beneficial insects, create better growing conditions, or even simply maximize the area with which we have to work. More than anything else, companion planting isnt so much a recipe book for which plants to grow together. Companion planting is an ecosystem approach to gardening: Taking note of how the different pieces of the garden puzzle fit together, and then doing what we can to foster the best relationships among those pieces adds another dynamite dimension to growing your own food.

My mom was an avid collector of Norman Rockwell, mostly plates that were for the most part very commercialized via Bradford Exchange. But we stumbled across a charcoal print of what we believe to be looking out to sea. It differs from the prints we find online, as the image is reversed and not 100 percent identical to the original. We have only found one reference to this version online, and are curious about its value, both retail and for insurance. It is on a coarse paper such as the type you would use for charcoal drawing not smooth. It is in pretty good condition; the paper is starting to warp a little due to age and Florida humidity, so I know we need to get it rematted. Anything else you can tell us about it? I have attached a picture of the print and a picture of the more common plate. E., Internet Dear E.: I suspect most of our readers are aware of the artist Norman Rockwell. If you have an original charcoal drawing by Rockwell, the dollar value will be significant. I think you have a print, not an original charcoal drawing. To investigate further, I suggest you contact Swann Galleries at www.swanngalleries.com in New York. They specialize in works on paper. Dear John: I am sending you a picture of a glass from a set of 12 that I believe my in-laws got as a wedding gift back in July of 1917. It is a very thin, delicate, pink glass. It also came with dessert glasses, which were short and wide, but only five of those survived. Can you tell me anything about these glasses? Any information will be greatly welcomed. E.M., Internet Dear E.M.: I think your pretty pink glassware was made in America. I do not recognize the maker or the pattern. Here is a good Internet resource for American glassware: The company name is Sparkle Plenty Glass. The website is www.spglass.com. Dear John: I enjoy your show every Saturday morning. On March 17, one of your listeners inquired about cleaning silver. I have had very good results from a 3M product, Tarni Shield. It was recommended by a dealer in silver collectibles in Los Angeles. Tarni-Shield gives a very bright luster without scratching. Part of the polishing instructions includes the note to rinse in water and then let stand 2 to 5 minutes. The dealer said to use very hot water when rinsing so that a thin invisible, wax-like layer remains on the silver, thereby prolonging the shine. He said that periodic dusting would further prolong the shine, and cautioned J une marks the beginning of summer, the rainy season and hurricane season. This month also offers some of the greatest opportunities for viewing wildlife. There is a wide variety of interesting critter activities to observe throughout June. BirdsJune is the breeding season for laughing gulls, least terns, oystercatchers, and black skimmers. This time of year, waterfowl are nesting on spoil islands, undisturbed beaches, and even rooftops when their preferred habitat is unavailable. The Citrus County shoreline offers many opportunities for close-up waterfowl encounters. June is also nesting time for ospreys, commonly known as sea hawks, fish eagles or fish hawks. Ospreys are large fish-eating raptors with a predominantly grey head sporting a distinct black eye patch. Fish are the main course of an ospreys diet, so it is always found near water: fresh or salt, inland or on the coast, wherever the pickings are good. Ospreys are particularly well-adapted to this diet, with reversible outer toes, sharp spicules on the underside of the toes, closable nostrils to keep out water during dives, and backwards-facing scales on the talons which act as barbs to help hold catches. Look for the big nests in tall dead trees bordering any waterway; you will be surprised how many nests can be found this time of year. It is also nesting season for mockingbirds, but keep in mind to observe these birds from a distance. Mockingbirds are no bird brains and can recognize a face in a crowd. University of Florida biologists are reporting that mockingbirds recognize and remember people whom the birds perceive as threatening their nests. If the white-and-grey songbirds spot unwelcome guests, they screech, dive bomb and even sometimes graze the visitors heads all while ignoring other passers-by or nearby strangers. Reptiles June is the height of the gopher tortoise breeding season. The gopher tortoiseis a fairly large terrestrial turtle which possesses forefeet well adapted for burrowing and elephantine hind feet. The gopher tortoise is unique in that it is one of the few tortoises to actually make large burrows. Many tortoises hide under vegetation or use very shallow burrows. Gopher tortoises are herbivore scavengers, and their diets consist of more than 300 species of plants. They consume a very wide range of plants, but mainly eat broad-leaved grasses, wiregrass, and terrestrial legumes. The gopher tortoise has an elaborate courtship that begins in the spring. They will nest between April and July. Typically, the nests are dug very close to their burrow openings, where a clutch of 4 to 7 eggs are laid. The gopher tortoise eggs are round and about the size of a ping pong ball. The sex of the offspring is determined by the temperature of the soil where the nest is incubating. If the temperature is above 85 degrees, the tortoise hatchling will be female; Questions about Rockwell picture; advice for silver John Sikorski SIKORSKIS ATTIC Critter happenings in June HomeFront is a weekly real estate section published Sundays in the Citrus County Chronicle.

See ATTIC / Page E5 Joan Bradshaw FLORIDAFRIENDLY LIVING RIGHT: This work, apparently by Norman Rockwell, is reversed from the way the scene is normally portrayed. Is it a print, or an original drawing? Special to the Chronicle See JUNE / Page E5 lavender-blue ones mixed on the same flower head. One named variety, Elaine, has shorter, slimmer leaves up to 18 inches long. Flowers are a dark purple. While most Agapanthus prefer full sun, Elaine flowers best in light or afternoon shade. Dwarf Peter Pan has 18-inch-long leaves in a clump about as wide. It has starbursts of lavender-blue flowers. Up to 200 individual flowers grow at the apex of each green stem, radiating from a single central point. Flower season locally starts in mid-May and is over in July. Each umbellate globe of flowers lasts three weeks in the garden. Plants in the same bed will not necessarily flower together. One may be fading when its neighbor is opening weeks later. Flowering season lasts six to eight weeks. Let the flower head open for about a week, then cut it as a long-stemmed flower for the vase. Gardeners can cut off spent flower stalks or let seeds mature. For the rest of the growing season, leaf growth produces fat, healthy bulbs, roots and offset bulblets. In frost free Zones 9 to 11, Agapanthus remains evergreen over winter. In Zone 8B, foliage will die to the ground after the first frost. Young plants grow at the base of the parent bulb. These offspring take several years to reach flowering size. Fall is a good time to dig up a mature plant. Shake off the soil, trying not to damage the thick white roots. Gently but firmly pull the bulbs apart and untangle the roots. There will be a snap as the smaller bulbs detach from the parent. Replant immediately as a border or in groups of five to nine. Spread out the roots and cover with humus-rich soil. Flood with water to settle soil around the roots. Do not stamp on the delicate roots. I like to put small bulbs in a 6-inch diameter No. 1 pot. In a year they will be ready to share with friends and neighbors. Attractive foliage develops over the growing season into large clumps about 2 feet tall and as wide in several years. A line of Agapanthus forms a dense row towards the back of a perennial bed. Jane Weber is a Professional Gardener and Consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants.

T exture and form are words used in gardening to suggest plant appearance. Form could be square pruned like a formal Japanese Boxwood shrub,Buxusmicrophylla, or naturally dense and rounded like Schellings Holly, Ilex vomitoria, a variety of native Yaupon. Texture can refer to the shiny leathery tops of a Little gem Magnolia leaf, its velvety brown underside, or to the delicate leaves of a fern planted nearby in the shade. When designing a garden, homeowners should consider form, texture, mature size, shape and color.Agapanthus African lily, is an easyto-grow perennial useful for its strong, strap-like foliage and large spheres of flowers towering above the leaves in late spring to summer. Agape translates as love in ancient Greek, while anthos means flower. Most local species are A. praecox,with large globes of blue flowers on a single, stout stem up to 36 inches tall. Originally from South Africa, Agapanthus has been cultivated for thousands of years. Some varieties have white flowers. Others have both white and against cleaning too often, since every cleaning episodes result in a microscopic reduction in the silver finish.

As always, comments and helpful tidbits of information are welcome and encouraged. Dear John: I was given your email by a local gallery. I have a painting called Tornado Trees by an artist named Mark Weber, and I am trying to find out its value. If you could give me any information on it, it would be greatly appreciated.

and out of the area around plants like zucchini, can help to greatly increase your yields from those plants by attracting significantly more insect pollinators than squash blossoms are able to alone all the while keeping squash bugs at bay. Plants also can directly benefit other plants in the garden, either through creating amiable microclimates, adding nutrients to the soil, or providing needed structure. Probably the most recognizable example of this is the three sisters gardening technique used by early Native American gardeners. By growing maize (corn), squash and beans together, each plant was able to benefit from the others, resulting in a healthier whole. Pole beans, as the name suggests, grow best when they have a tall polelike structure to vine on; corn provides this perfectly. At the same time, the beans, being of the legume family, are able to fix atmospheric nitrogen and deposit it in the soil. This helps feed the nitrogen-loving corn plants. But what of the squash? Being long, vining plants with large leaves, the squash plants are able to quickly cover the exposed ground between the corn and beans. The shade under their leaves keeps the ground cool and moist in the heat of summer and deters weeds from growing and taking the nutrients from the lot of them. While planning my garden last year, I decided to try a new location for my peas. As a companion to the rest of the garden, I planted a thick row of peas along the 30-foot length of the garden bed. The early season peas grew quickly, as they tend to do, and provided a perfect low-level wind break as the later spring planting season progressed. Tender seedlings that would have been lost to the gusting winds fared so well that I had no losses to speak of, and all because, over time, I was able to watch the cues that my garden was giving me, find a companion planting that could help to solve that problem, and implement the plan. While I used peas in this instance as a seasonal hedge against the wind, I might have used a more permanent hedge as a barrier to other unwanted garden problems. Perhaps the thorny holly bush to help deter wildlife, or a curved hedgerow uphill from a garden to help redirect the cool air of the early and late seasons as it settles around the garden.

Or that ancient agriculturists tended to sow a hodgepodge of crops in the same field? Surely youve encountered the phrase, three sisters, which describes a kind of cropping where corn stalks support vining beans and squash or pumpkins shade out the weeds. No matter how you harvest it, companion planting in the garden has the capability to offer larger and more diverse yields with fewer fertility and pest problems. Heres how. Plants form relationships with their environment and the other life forms around them, whether that be other plants, insects, soil microbes or even the gardeners who nurture them. Some of those relationships can weaken the crop (think weedy lambs ears overtaking your onion patch), while others can strengthen it (three sisters, for example). Some would promote companion planting as a means to keep this or that pest away rather than how to make a garden ecosystem healthier, and therefore more productive. The fact of the matter is that if you avoid monocultural blocks in the garden and place certain species in close proximity of others, you will foil all kinds of pesky problems. Take, for instance, the marigold. Although its insect repelling properties are legendary in even a beginning gardeners vocabulary, the fact is often overlooked that it also plays a vital role as an attractor. Hoverflies, whose larvae are voracious eaters of pests like aphids and who as adults play an important role in the garden as pollinators, are attracted to the bright yellow and orange flowers. Nasturtiums, too, are well-regarded for their natural repelling of pests like cucumber beetles, white-fly and, my personal nemesis, the squash bug, but they also are a strongly attractive plant. Planting nasturtiums, whose long vines curl in Flourishing plant friendships Wise gardeners know how to group growing things for maximum yields and aesthetic appeal See GROUPS / Page E7 GROUPS Continued from Page E6 See GROUPS / Page E9 A beautiful raised bed is home to romaine lettuce, rosemary, snapdragons and basil.

Or that ancient agriculturists tended to sow a hodgepodge of crops in the same field? Surely youve encountered the phrase, three sisters, which describes a kind of cropping where corn stalks support vining beans and squash or pumpkins shade out the weeds. No matter how you harvest it, companion planting in the garden has the capability to offer larger and more diverse yields with fewer fertility and pest problems. Heres how. Plants form relationships with their environment and the other life forms around them, whether that be other plants, insects, soil microbes or even the gardeners who nurture them. Some of those relationships can weaken the crop (think weedy lambs ears overtaking your onion patch), while others can strengthen it (three sisters, for example). Some would promote companion planting as a means to keep this or that pest away rather than how to make a garden ecosystem healthier, and therefore more productive. The fact of the matter is that if you avoid monocultural blocks in the garden and place certain species in close proximity of others, you will foil all kinds of pesky problems. Take, for instance, the marigold. Although its insect repelling properties are legendary in even a beginning gardeners vocabulary, the fact is often overlooked that it also plays a vital role as an attractor. Hoverflies, whose larvae are voracious eaters of pests like aphids and who as adults play an important role in the garden as pollinators, are attracted to the bright yellow and orange flowers. Nasturtiums, too, are well-regarded for their natural repelling of pests like cucumber beetles, white-fly and, my personal nemesis, the squash bug, but they also are a strongly attractive plant. Planting nasturtiums, whose long vines curl in Flourishing plant friendships Wise gardeners know how to group growing things for maximum yields and aesthetic appeal See GROUPS / Page E7 GROUPS Continued from Page E6 See GROUPS / Page E9 A beautiful raised bed is home to romaine lettuce, rosemary, snapdragons and basil.

T exture and form are words used in gardening to suggest plant appearance. Form could be square pruned like a formal Japanese Boxwood shrub,Buxusmicrophylla, or naturally dense and rounded like Schellings Holly, Ilex vomitoria, a variety of native Yaupon. Texture can refer to the shiny leathery tops of a Little gem Magnolia leaf, its velvety brown underside, or to the delicate leaves of a fern planted nearby in the shade. When designing a garden, homeowners should consider form, texture, mature size, shape and color.Agapanthus African lily, is an easyto-grow perennial useful for its strong, strap-like foliage and large spheres of flowers towering above the leaves in late spring to summer. Agape translates as love in ancient Greek, while anthos means flower. Most local species are A. praecox,with large globes of blue flowers on a single, stout stem up to 36 inches tall. Originally from South Africa, Agapanthus has been cultivated for thousands of years. Some varieties have white flowers. Others have both white and against cleaning too often, since every cleaning episodes result in a microscopic reduction in the silver finish.

ambitions. For instance, if I want to grow broccoli in the spring, I know its going to take a significant part of my garden. However, I also know that while the full-grown plant may require 2 square feet, its going to take a couple of months before it gets to that size. If I were to plant just those seedlings on their own, there would be a lot of wasted ground left barren around them. By pairing a primary planting like broccoli, kale, brussels sprouts or some other spring-planted, longer-season crop with a secondary springplanted short-season crop like mesclun, baby lettuce greens, radishes or green onions we can maximize the gardening space while helping to keep the grounds moisture level even during the wetter early months and the soil cool as the season progresses. Another benefit is reaped as the longer-season leafy plants grow larger in the early summer sun. While lettuce will bolt as it experiences too much warmth from the longer days, another couple of plantings of tender greens can often be harvested from beneath the shady canopy of the maturing primary plants. Another way of providing partial shade for plants that dont need a full day of sun can be accomplished with taller plants like corn, sunflowers or even vertically grown tomatoes placed throughout the garden in north-south rows. By sowing the taller plants in this orientation, plants on either side of them are offered roughly a half-day of shade. I wish I could say I knew everything there is to know about companion planting, but honestly, I dont see how anyone ever could. Each year brings a new understanding and an opportunity to try a new way of combining different elements of the garden to benefit the plants, attract beneficial insects, create better growing conditions, or even simply maximize the area with which we have to work. More than anything else, companion planting isnt so much a recipe book for which plants to grow together. Companion planting is an ecosystem approach to gardening: Taking note of how the different pieces of the garden puzzle fit together, and then doing what we can to foster the best relationships among those pieces adds another dynamite dimension to growing your own food.

My mom was an avid collector of Norman Rockwell, mostly plates that were for the most part very commercialized via Bradford Exchange. But we stumbled across a charcoal print of what we believe to be looking out to sea. It differs from the prints we find online, as the image is reversed and not 100 percent identical to the original. We have only found one reference to this version online, and are curious about its value, both retail and for insurance. It is on a coarse paper such as the type you would use for charcoal drawing not smooth. It is in pretty good condition; the paper is starting to warp a little due to age and Florida humidity, so I know we need to get it rematted. Anything else you can tell us about it? I have attached a picture of the print and a picture of the more common plate. E., Internet Dear E.: I suspect most of our readers are aware of the artist Norman Rockwell. If you have an original charcoal drawing by Rockwell, the dollar value will be significant. I think you have a print, not an original charcoal drawing. To investigate further, I suggest you contact Swann Galleries at www.swanngalleries.com in New York. They specialize in works on paper. Dear John: I am sending you a picture of a glass from a set of 12 that I believe my in-laws got as a wedding gift back in July of 1917. It is a very thin, delicate, pink glass. It also came with dessert glasses, which were short and wide, but only five of those survived. Can you tell me anything about these glasses? Any information will be greatly welcomed. E.M., Internet Dear E.M.: I think your pretty pink glassware was made in America. I do not recognize the maker or the pattern. Here is a good Internet resource for American glassware: The company name is Sparkle Plenty Glass. The website is www.spglass.com. Dear John: I enjoy your show every Saturday morning. On March 17, one of your listeners inquired about cleaning silver. I have had very good results from a 3M product, Tarni Shield. It was recommended by a dealer in silver collectibles in Los Angeles. Tarni-Shield gives a very bright luster without scratching. Part of the polishing instructions includes the note to rinse in water and then let stand 2 to 5 minutes. The dealer said to use very hot water when rinsing so that a thin invisible, wax-like layer remains on the silver, thereby prolonging the shine. He said that periodic dusting would further prolong the shine, and cautioned J une marks the beginning of summer, the rainy season and hurricane season. This month also offers some of the greatest opportunities for viewing wildlife. There is a wide variety of interesting critter activities to observe throughout June. BirdsJune is the breeding season for laughing gulls, least terns, oystercatchers, and black skimmers. This time of year, waterfowl are nesting on spoil islands, undisturbed beaches, and even rooftops when their preferred habitat is unavailable. The Citrus County shoreline offers many opportunities for close-up waterfowl encounters. June is also nesting time for ospreys, commonly known as sea hawks, fish eagles or fish hawks. Ospreys are large fish-eating raptors with a predominantly grey head sporting a distinct black eye patch. Fish are the main course of an ospreys diet, so it is always found near water: fresh or salt, inland or on the coast, wherever the pickings are good. Ospreys are particularly well-adapted to this diet, with reversible outer toes, sharp spicules on the underside of the toes, closable nostrils to keep out water during dives, and backwards-facing scales on the talons which act as barbs to help hold catches. Look for the big nests in tall dead trees bordering any waterway; you will be surprised how many nests can be found this time of year. It is also nesting season for mockingbirds, but keep in mind to observe these birds from a distance. Mockingbirds are no bird brains and can recognize a face in a crowd. University of Florida biologists are reporting that mockingbirds recognize and remember people whom the birds perceive as threatening their nests. If the white-and-grey songbirds spot unwelcome guests, they screech, dive bomb and even sometimes graze the visitors heads all while ignoring other passers-by or nearby strangers. Reptiles June is the height of the gopher tortoise breeding season. The gopher tortoiseis a fairly large terrestrial turtle which possesses forefeet well adapted for burrowing and elephantine hind feet. The gopher tortoise is unique in that it is one of the few tortoises to actually make large burrows. Many tortoises hide under vegetation or use very shallow burrows. Gopher tortoises are herbivore scavengers, and their diets consist of more than 300 species of plants. They consume a very wide range of plants, but mainly eat broad-leaved grasses, wiregrass, and terrestrial legumes. The gopher tortoise has an elaborate courtship that begins in the spring. They will nest between April and July. Typically, the nests are dug very close to their burrow openings, where a clutch of 4 to 7 eggs are laid. The gopher tortoise eggs are round and about the size of a ping pong ball. The sex of the offspring is determined by the temperature of the soil where the nest is incubating. If the temperature is above 85 degrees, the tortoise hatchling will be female; Questions about Rockwell picture; advice for silver John Sikorski SIKORSKIS ATTIC Critter happenings in June HomeFront is a weekly real estate section published Sundays in the Citrus County Chronicle.

See ATTIC / Page E5 Joan Bradshaw FLORIDAFRIENDLY LIVING RIGHT: This work, apparently by Norman Rockwell, is reversed from the way the scene is normally portrayed. Is it a print, or an original drawing? Special to the Chronicle See JUNE / Page E5 lavender-blue ones mixed on the same flower head. One named variety, Elaine, has shorter, slimmer leaves up to 18 inches long. Flowers are a dark purple. While most Agapanthus prefer full sun, Elaine flowers best in light or afternoon shade. Dwarf Peter Pan has 18-inch-long leaves in a clump about as wide. It has starbursts of lavender-blue flowers. Up to 200 individual flowers grow at the apex of each green stem, radiating from a single central point. Flower season locally starts in mid-May and is over in July. Each umbellate globe of flowers lasts three weeks in the garden. Plants in the same bed will not necessarily flower together. One may be fading when its neighbor is opening weeks later. Flowering season lasts six to eight weeks. Let the flower head open for about a week, then cut it as a long-stemmed flower for the vase. Gardeners can cut off spent flower stalks or let seeds mature. For the rest of the growing season, leaf growth produces fat, healthy bulbs, roots and offset bulblets. In frost free Zones 9 to 11, Agapanthus remains evergreen over winter. In Zone 8B, foliage will die to the ground after the first frost. Young plants grow at the base of the parent bulb. These offspring take several years to reach flowering size. Fall is a good time to dig up a mature plant. Shake off the soil, trying not to damage the thick white roots. Gently but firmly pull the bulbs apart and untangle the roots. There will be a snap as the smaller bulbs detach from the parent. Replant immediately as a border or in groups of five to nine. Spread out the roots and cover with humus-rich soil. Flood with water to settle soil around the roots. Do not stamp on the delicate roots. I like to put small bulbs in a 6-inch diameter No. 1 pot. In a year they will be ready to share with friends and neighbors. Attractive foliage develops over the growing season into large clumps about 2 feet tall and as wide in several years. A line of Agapanthus forms a dense row towards the back of a perennial bed. Jane Weber is a Professional Gardener and Consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants.

SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has rejected three petitions seeking a tweak of its charter with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. In an opinion signed and dated May 30 by FWCs Executive Director Nick Wiley, the bids by the citizens group Save Crystal River Inc., the city of Crystal River and the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners ask FWC to, among other things, revise its cooperative agreement with USFWS to include: Amending the proposed rule, titled cooperation, as follows: It is understood that FWC and or Florida law enforcement authorities are not authorized to enforce federal rules in federal manatee refuges, including activities which have been permitted in accordance with 68A 27.007 F.A.C.; Workforce board ranks in states top 10 County staff meets with state about Medicaid bill CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterLECANTO County staff began the process Thursday to settle a dispute about how much the county owes the state for Medicaid-paid medical treatment. Representatives from the states Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) met with Citrus County Commissioner Rebecca Bays, County Administrator Brad Thorpe and County Attorney Richard Wesch, in addition to other county staff, to review disputed medical billings. The need for the meeting arose from the passage in the Florida Legislature earlier this year of the Medicaid Cost Shift Bill. Under the new law, all 67 Florida counties are required to pay nearly $300 million in what the state has defined as past-due billing for Medicaid, the health care program for low-income and disabled patients. The counties are disputing most of the past-due amounts because of a flawed state system of billing. According to the counties, they are being billed as far back as 2001 for invoices that already have been paid or that are for patients who do not live in their counties, among other reasons. The new law would enforce the payment of the disputed bills through the withholding of each countys share of the state sales tax until the past-due amounts were satisfied. The withholding of sales tax funds from the counties would begin in October. Citrus Countys past-due amount is in dispute, and the purpose of SHEMIRWILES Staff WriterWhen Lisa McKeever moved to Crystal River from Virginia 18 months ago, not only did she take a severe pay cut, but the commute to her new job at the University of Florida in Gainesville was wreaking havoc on her personal life and pocketbook. The daily three-hour roundtrip commute quickly became a burden and, sadly, she said, she didnt even like the job she had. She tried looking for a new job on her own, but being new to the area, McKeever said she didnt know where to look for the jobs and finding the time and energy to peruse the Internet or the classified section of the newspaper was difficult. Eventually, she stumbled upon EmployFlorida.com, the website for Employ Florida Marketplace, which links all of Floridas state and local workforce services and resources. On the website, McKeever said she was able to see what was out See MEDICAID/ Page A9 See BOARD/ Page A9 See FWC/ Page A4 Community marks 125 years as Citrus CountySHEMIRWILES Staff Writer INVERNESS Standing on the steps of the Citrus County Historic Courthouse on Saturday morning, Citrus County Historical Society President John Grannan said the day was a culmination of dreams. From the pioneer families who traversed the wild Florida terrain to settle in the area that in 1887 would become Citrus County to the building of a permanent courthouse in the county seat in 1912, Grannan called the celebration of the 100th birthday of the courthouse and the 125th birthday of the county a remembrance of visions that come true. He spoke candidly about the work put in by many individuals in the community like Ron and Beverly Drinkhouse, Allen and Marcia Beasley and the Rev. James Hoge, who were all instrumental in the restoration and preservation of the Old Courthouse. Grannan also gave special recognition to Ethel Winn, a longtime Citrus County resident and educator who, Grannan quipped, was born the same year the courthouse was built. And they both still look good, he added. Several people who once worked in the courthouse, such as County Judge Mark Yerman, former county commissioner Wilbur Langley, former county tax collector Norine Gilstrap and former state Sen. Karen Thurman also attended Saturdays event. Commission Chairman Winn Webb stated it was an honor and a privilege to attend the birthday celebration. Times have changed, he said, and for people to know how things once were in the community, longtime residents need to share the stories not written in the history books. Webb shared many of his recollections and just how much the courthouse meant to him, such as the fact his father purchased the farm he grew up on in Floral City back in 1937 during a land auction on the steps of the courthouse. DAVE SIGLER/ChronicleJason Berger was one of the 19 students who put items in a time capsule in 1987. Renna Jablonskis placed the capsule with her students in the courthouse. Berger, left, shows a toy space shuttle his brother had placed in the capsule to his parents, Terry, center, and Lannie. Berger buried a safety patrol badge he said belonged to his brother.

Cake pops were the sparkling chocolate and vanilla stars of the refreshments table in the upstairs courtroom Saturday during the celebration. People sported sparkles later from the dusting on the pops. Courthouse centennial Citrus Countys pioneers blazed the way to build the 1912 Citrus County courthouse. Two longtime Citrus County residents, Ethel Winn and the Rev. James Hoge, attended thecelebration of the 100th birthday of the courthouse and the 125th birthday of Citrus County. Winn and Hoge were instrumental in the education and spiritual richness of the county. Citrus County Judge Mark Yerman was the last county judge to sit on the bench in the historic courthouse. He was forced to evacuate the courtroom after the roof collapsed. PONY PARTY:JubileeQueen Elizabeth II starts four-day celebration of 60-year reign at the races./ Page A10

The winner will win a trip to Key West to compete in a preliminary round of the 2012 Sloppy Joes Papa Hemingway Look-Alike Contest. The contest at Sloppy Joes Bar takes place during Key Wests annual Hemingway Days festival, set for July 17 to 22. Hemingway Days also features a marlin tournament and a short story contest coordinated by the authors granddaughter, Lorian Hemingway.Mass. woman killed in Panhandle car accidentNAVARRE Authorities said a Massachusetts woman visiting the Florida Panhandle has died in a traffic accident involving a 15-year-old driver. Margaret Catyb of Dracut, Mass., had traveled to Navarre to see her grandson graduate from high school. Catyb died Thursday after the teenager pulled her vehicle into the path of the car driven by Catybs son, Alley Catyb II, also of Dracut, Mass. Alley Catyb and the teen were treated for minor injuries. Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Steven Preston told the Pensacola News Journal the teen violated her driving learners permit, which required her to have someone 21 or older in the car with her. FHP said alcohol was not involved in the crash. Preston said charges are pending.Teen on dirt bike killed in northeast FloridaJACKSONVILLE Authorities said a teenage boy riding a dirt bike died Friday after colliding with a Jeep in northeast Florida. The Jacksonville Sheriffs Office said the small motorcycle and the SUV collided around dusk Friday in a wooded area known for off-roading. Lt. Randy Parmer told The Florida Times-Union people were driving through mud in the area after some rain. The teens identity was not released.Stimulus money boosts coral reef restorationKEY LARGO Coral reef restoration along Floridas shores has been getting a boost from federal stimulus money. The American Recovery and Restoration Act of 2009 provided $3.3 million to grow threatened corals in underwater nurseries and then transplant them along a 300-mile reef tract. The money was part of $167 million given to coastline restoration projects. The funding ends in December The superintendent of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary told The Miami Herald the stimulus money has helped expand coral restoration projects. Before the funding, most projects focused on places where large vessels had run aground. Now the projects span the reef. Scientists say staghorn and elkhorn coral populations have declined by about 90 percent throughout the Caribbean during the past 30 years.SW Fla man charged with selling fake Rolex watchesCAPE CORAL A southwest Florida man has been arrested for allegedly selling counterfeit Rolex watches. According to the Lee County Sheriffs Office, James Lynch of Cape Coral posted the watches for sale in an online classified advertisement on Craigslist. The sheriffs office said an undercover detective purchased five watches from Lynch Thursday. Other detectives followed Lynch to his home, where they found 70 counterfeit Rolex, Breitling, Omega and Movado watches. The sheriffs office said detectives also found fake Oakley sunglasses and Louis Vuitton purses, wallets and belts. Deputies said the retail value that the counterfeit items defrauded the real manufacturers is between $750,000 and $1 million. Lynch posted $5,000 bond Friday on a second-degree felony charge of selling counterfeit items over $20,000. Jail records did not show whether he had an attorney.Port Authority: Fla. truck driver had fake platesFORT LEE, N.J. A Florida truck driver who allegedly used fake license plates from different states to evade tolls is facing many charges after being stopped on the George Washington Bridge in New Jersey. Al Della Fave, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, said 32-year-old Michael Krasozski of Sunny Isles Beach was driving a car carrier with 10 vehicles when it was stopped around 10 a.m. Saturday. Della Fave said Port Authority police officers Michael Brennan and Jason Malice were in an unmarked car when they noticed problems with the carriers license plates. After stopping the vehicle, they eventually determined the plates apparently were made by hand and one was a Maine plate and the other an Arizona plate. Krasozski was charged with theft of services and falsifying and tampering with public records. He also will face many motor vehicle summonses. It was not known Saturday afternoon if he had retained an attorney Della Fave said it was not immediately known whether Krasozski or the Arizonabased company that owns the car carrier owed any unpaid tolls or fees.

Top hits on the Chronicleonline.com website include:Taking a nameIn a world where achievers strive to make a name for them selves, it came as a surprise when a local Realtor learned someone else was making a name for him. As it turns out, some scam artist or artists zapped his computer with a virus, enabling them to obtain the names of people with whom the Realtor has had business dealings. While those who brave the Internet are growing increasingly accustomed to being emailed hard-luck tales from supposed friends, family members or acquaintances, being bogusly thumbed as the one reaching out to unassuming contacts puts an all-toopersonal stamp on the scam.Pedestrian fatalityA walk down a dark Croft Avenue during the predawn hours this past weekend resulted in the death of a 24-year-old Floral City man. A motorist traveling down the Inverness-area road was reportedly unable to see the 24-year-old, said to be in the northbound lane just outside the center doubleyellow line. The driver received minor injuries. No charges were filed.County loses pillarA gasp of grief was palpable throughout county government and beyond this past week. Longtime county employee and operations/planning officer Gary Maidhof died suddenly after a nature walk while in Idaho. He was only 54. While viewed far and wide as a human encyclopedia when it comes to Citrus County factoids, it was his personality that endeared him to many. I laughed every day I worked for Gary .... Its like he found humor in everything. He just had a way of bringing lightness to every situation. a coworker said, adding, I never met a man like him in my entire life, and I dont think Ill ever again. He was my hero.Barging inA non-drive-through convenience store had an unexpected drive-through encounter Monday when a motorists brakes gave way. When the driver wheeled into the parking lot of the Super Discount store in Crystal River, he hit the brakes and they failed so he subsequently hit the store. While the store suffered damage, the motorist said of his truck, It is driveable but not until I get the brakes fixed. The Super Discount employees would agree.Suspect nabbedThe man in black was bound to be an inmate in orange after authorities concluded he was the fellow who held up a Kangaroo store and snatched a money bag from a Dollar Tree employee. A witness said the 26-year-old Beverly Hill-ian ditched his dark duds after one of the dastardly deeds. When authorities closed in on his abode, the suspect attempted take flight but instead had a K9 encounter. The suspect is said to have acknowledged he has a bit of a pill problem.

Recognizing the danger presented to the public by defective vehicle equipment, troopers will concentrate their efforts on vehicles operated with defects such as bad brakes, worn tires and defective lighting equipment. In addition, attention will be directed at drivers who would violate the driver license laws of Florida.

Del Valle, Citrus County parks and recreation manager, retired Friday from a county department that first employed him in 1987. Weve tried to talk him out of (retiring), but hes made up his mind, County Administrator Brad Thorpe said at an April meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners. His wife cannot be convinced. Thorpe said Del Valle had written grants that brought millions of dollars in state and federal funding for county parks. Our parks would not look the way they are if it wasnt for Rafael, Thorpe said. I always remember his efforts. Cathy Pearson, assistant county administrator and director of the Department of Community Services, said she would miss him. Rafael Del Valle is a guy who never says no, Pearson said. He makes it happen. You give him a project. You dont have to worry about it it gets done. Citrus Countys park system offers a wide variety of activities in natural settings. Residents can choose from tennis, baseball, basketball, soccer, canoeing, gulf or pool swimming, hiking, camping, skateboarding, bird-watching and sitting on a park bench in about 39 recreational facilities and about 27 parks. Much work goes into keeping it functioning. Del Valle started work with the county with an evening job in 1987, then went to full-time the following year as a recreation supervisor. He worked up to assistant director for about 10 years, and then became parks and recreation manager in 2002. Born in Puerto Rico, Del Valle grew up in New York. Im a product of the Boys Club of New York, Del Valle said. He was awarded scholarships for education in Boston and Illinois, and said he wanted to give back. In order to give back, it was through recreation because thatS what Boys Club is all about, Del Valle said. Looking back, Del Valle spoke of his first project. One of the projects Im most proud of is my very first project, which is the Floral City tree project where we planted all the trees out there, Del Valle said. It was kind of neat because at the time, I thought it was the nicest park in the county. We were able to get a grant and get 432 trees that we planted, and I actually went out there and marked every single spot, so thats kind of dear to me because it was my first project. As manager, Del Valle got hold of grants for maintenance and improvements. I was able to obtain almost $1 million in grants in dealing with Bluebird Springs, Bicentennial Park, Holder Park, Homosassa Recreational Park and Central Ridge Park, all big projects, Del Valle said. Central Ridge in particular, we were able to obtain two different grants to support that. We did the soccer field as the last project out there. Del Valle is leaving with a sense of completion. One of the things I wanted to accomplish before I left was to finish Eugene Martin Park (in South Dunnellon), he said. It was an ongoing 20-year project, and I was able to pull that in and it really made me feel great. One regret is that residents dont use the parks as much as he would like them to. There are an immense amount of activities, but people dont know where to go. And thats my biggest disappointment, Del Valle said. We have beautiful parks, and we offer great programs and they just dont take advantage. Del Valle, however, will have the time to show how parks should be used. Being a recreational professional, Im going to study leisure as much as I can, Del Valle said. Make myself have fun, enjoy myself. The new manager, Michael Howell, is already on the job. He has 25 years experience in the recreational field, including athletic facilities, maintenance and design, in both the private and public sectors in Maryland and Rhode Island. Hes a graduate of the University of Southern California, for whom he played football, and he also played with the San Diego Chargers.

County parks and recreation chief retires DAVE SIGLER/ChronicleRafael Del Valle, Citrus County Parks and Recreation manager, retired Friday after 25 years with Citrus County. He plans to spend more time with his wife and grandchildren. Ready to relax, reflect Zimmermans credibility might be issue Associated PressSANFORD The credibility of Trayvon Martins shooter could be an issue at trial after a judge said George Zimmerman and his wife lied to the court about their finances to obtain a bond, legal experts say. Thats because the case hinges on jurors believing his account of what happened the night the 17-yearold was killed. Zimmerman wasnt charged in the case until more than a month after the shooting, saying he shot Martin in self-defense under Floridas so-called stand your ground law. Protests were held across the nation, and the case spurred debate about race. Martin was black; Zimmermans father is white and his mother is from Peru. The questioning of Zimmermans truthfulness by the judge on Friday could undermine his credibility if it is brought up at trial. It also may complicate how his defense presents him as a witness, said Orlando-area attorney Randy McClean, who is a former prosecutor. The other key witness, unfortunately, is deceased, McClean said. Basically, Zimmerman is going to be asking the jury to believe his version of the facts. ... As the case stands now, his credibility is absolutely critical to the case. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder for the February shooting. The neighborhood watch volunteer says he shot Martin in self-defense because the unarmed 17-yearold was beating him up. George Zimmermanaccused of lying. Judge claims accused shooter lied to obtain bond

Amend Section 2 of the proposed rule titled take of endangered and threatened wildlife to add the following language: permitting for incidental take shall adhere to standards set forth in Florida statute to prohibit regulations and restrictions of permitting which would have undue interference with the rights of fishers, boaters and water skiers. Permitting for individual take may be authorized by the Commission and the November 2010 changes to the text removing permitting for incidental take from the authority of the Commission shall be stricken. And for the removal of all references to the area called Kings Bay and Citrus County as appropriate for all waters now under Federal Manatee Refuge designation as of March 16, 2012. On March 15, the USFWS unveiled its new rules for waterborne activities on Kings Bay and designated the bay a manatee protection refuge. In its response to the petitions, FWC said the cooperative agreement is not a rule, but an arrangement between agencies to work in harmony for the common purpose of planning, developing and conducting programs to protect, manage, and enhance the populations of all resident endangered and threatened fish and wildlife within the state of Florida. FWC said the cooperative agreement does not create rights, require compliance or have any direct and consistent effect of law and, therefore, it is not a rule. FWC also took issue with the request to allow incidental permitting of a take and its ability to enforce federal laws citing the mutual aid agreement for cooperative law enforcement between the two agencies and a narrow permitting process that allows for incidental take of imperiled species. FWC said should Kings Bays federal designations be removed as per the petitioners request, no regulation will be in place to protect the manatees. Furthermore, if FWC accedes to the request and repeals federal regulations in Kings Bay and USFWS prevails in court challenges to its rules, FWC officials contend USFWS officials may impose additional rules to offset the state repeal. Therefore, FWC said it is denying the petitions. This is the second petition denial for Save Crystal River by FWC in as many months, and a first for the county and city. Patrick Rose, executive director of Save the Manatee Club, said he knew the petition bid was going to fail. None of this makes any sense. They dont have any legal facts to back any of their claims and are not based in reality, because what they are essentially saying is they dont want any protections for the manatees, Rose said. Rose said he has had it with the political leaders in the county, and it seems to him they have abandoned the jewel (manatees) that brings a lot of tourist dollars to the area for other pursuits. What we are seeing is now they are trying to link issues from Three Sisters Springs with the new federal rules. But we are going to be digging into a lot of things, and if they are not doing what is necessary to protect the manatees, we, too, will act appropriately and are willing to put the force of law behind us, Rose said. Crystal River City Manager Andy Houston said the city attorney will present the denial order at the June 11 City Council meeting, and the council would make the determination if they wish to appeal or not. I think there is a 30-day period for appeals, but that is something the council has to decide, Houston said.Chronicle reporter A.B.

of the courthouse. Stating the commission board is unified in its desire to conserve the courthouse, Webb encourage all in attendance to tour the courthouse after the ceremony. Jim Farley, the mayor of Crystal River, shared personal remarks about the courthouse before telling it, Happy birthday, Old Girl. Inverness mayor Bob Plaisted recognized all the people in city government who make things happen and how the courthouse is one of the greatest parts of Citrus County before he read a proclamation from the city council. State Rep. Jimmie T. Smith spoke about the courthouse being the foundation of Citrus County. For years, its been the place where parents pick up their children from Little League practice and a landmark residents use when giving directions to outof-towners, Smith explained. And while people often talk about the courthouses past, Smith said it honestly is a view into our future. Its a part of Citrus County he hopes his 4-year-old daughter will always remember, he said, so when shes older and has her own children and grandchildren, she will be able to share her memories. Show them the foundation of Citrus County. Show them the courthouse, he said. State Sen. Charlie Dean shared memories of playing in the courthouse as a child and rattled off every single business and family that used to occupy the courthouse square without skipping a beat. He talked about having two uncles who helped build the courthouse and how lively games of dominoes in the square were the preferred way to gamble before the Florida Lottery came along. We have so much heritage and so many things to be thankful for, he said. He, too, read a proclamation recognizing the county and the courthouse. Renna Jablonskis then presented a number of her former students from Inverness Primary School who created a time capsule 25 years ago, which sat dormant in the courthouse for years until a few weeks ago. Jablonskis admitted she had forgotten about the project until she got an unexpected call from Pati Smith with the city of Inverness telling her about it. After finding a list of the students who participated in the project, Jablonskis said they went to work contacting the students to see if they would be able to attend. Many of them are now doctors, lawyers and nurses with their own children and live in far off places, such as England and Alaska, Jablonskis said. But before opening the capsule, she presented the principals of Inverness Primary School and Pleasant Grove Elementary School and students from both schools who created a new time capsule that will be opened in another 25 years. During the formal opening of the capsule, Jablonskis presented the students with items and their lists of dreams and aspirations they had placed in the box a quarter-century ago. Some wanted to become astronauts and pilots. A number of children left signature 1980s memorabilia like a Care Bear figurine and Garbage Pail Kids trading cards. They then watched a video of interviews the students conducted with individuals they thought would be important to the future of Citrus County, such as Dean when he was sheriff, former county commissioner Nick Bryant and then-Chronicleeditor Gerry Mulligan. Ginny Bawcom, who came to the event to represent her son Dustin, said when her son, who lives in Alaska, heard about the time capsule he was shocked, but didnt remember it. Daniel Dilocker, however, said he remembered the project and had even thought about it two weeks before receiving the invitation to attend the birthday celebration. Though he didnt become a pro athlete like he said he would (hes a dean at a middle school in Lake County), Dilocker said it was fun to see himself in the video and how young everyone was.

Associated PressWASHINGTON The U.S. Department of Justice says at least some materials sealed as part of the court case against seven men involved in the 1972 Watergate burglary should be released. The agency responded Friday to a request by a Texas history professor who is seeking access to materials he believes could help answer lingering questions about the burglary that led to President Richard Nixons resignation. Luke Nichter of Texas A&M University-Central Texas in Killeen, Texas, wrote the chief judge of the federal court in Washington to ask that potentially hundreds of pages of documents be unsealed. The judge wrote in a letter made public earlier this year the professor had raised a very legitimate question about whether the material should remain sealed, and he ordered the Department of Justice to respond with any objections. Justice attorney Elizabeth Shapiro wrote in a court document filed Friday the office would not oppose the release of at least some documents. Forty years after the break-in at the Democratic National Committee that began the chapter of U.S. history known as Watergate, no good reason exists to keep sealed many of the judicial records created during the trial of the Watergate burglars, she wrote. But Shapiro said three categories of documents should remain secret: certain documents containing personal information, grand jury information and documents about the content of illegally obtained wiretaps. In particular, Nichter wants access to records of at least two court hearings held behind closed doors and interviews and testimony given by Alfred Baldwin III, a former FBI agent who was hired to listen to and transcribe conversations from a phone the burglars wiretapped at the Democratic National Committee during a burglary May 28, 1972. The burglars were caught when they returned to the office June 17, 1972. There is some precedent for unsealing Watergate documents. In 2011, the same judge, U.S. District Chief Judge Royce Lamberth, ordered that a secret transcript of President Nixons testimony to a grand jury about the Watergate break-in be made public. Lamberth agreed with historians that arguments for releasing the 297-page transcript outweighed arguments for secrecy, because the investigations are long over and Nixon died in 1994. Nichter, who also runs a website cataloging secret recordings made by President Nixon in the White House, said the governments reply is somewhat encouraging, though its hard to tell from it what documents he might get access to. Im obviously going to get something, but I dont know what that something is, he said Saturday. Nichter said he would consult the judge to see how to proceed now that the government has responded.A6SUNDAY, JUNE3, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OBITUARIES The Citrus County Chronicles policy permits free and paid obituaries.

Long-sealed Watergate documents may be released JACKGILLUM Associated PressWASHINGTON Is it anything goes now in Americas campaign finance system? John Edwards is acquitted of using campaign cash as hush money. Theres an explosion of high-dollar super political action committees in the presidential race. Its all stoking criticism of revisions and regulatory loopholes in a system intended to keep better control of political money after Watergate. Loosening the law has made it easier for politicians to butt up against the legal line if not cross it and for wealthy Americans to influence who wins office, from the White House on down. All told, the immense amount of money in American campaigns, the cozy relationships between candidates and their financial backers and now, too, a seeming lack of accountability for alleged rule-breakers is fueling the publics long-standing distrust of its politicians and doubts about the credibility of the system. Theres not much for voters to have faith in, says Trevor Potter, a former Federal Election Commission member and a proponent of campaign-finance reform. We dont have much of a campaignfinance system at this stage, and we are wide open to the possibilities of corruption. Spanning many weeks, the Edwards trial in North Carolina showcased what prosecutors said was a classic case of misusing campaign funds: Here was a former presidential candidate, they said, who channeled large sums of money from a deep-pocketed donor to cover up a love child and a mistress. But jurors acquitted Edwards, in part because the statute he was charged under required him to know he was breaking the law. Jurors said the government didnt prove that. Said one, Sheila Lockwood: I just felt that he didnt receive any of the money, so you cant really charge him for money that he got. Campaign finance laws have changed remarkably since Edwards ran for the White House four years ago. Had he been a candidate this year, and had his backers wanted to help him, they could have established a super PAC and donated unlimited amounts of money that could have been used in any number of ways. Its unclear if that still would have been legal for the uses in his case, although the super PACs have been able to take more risks than the campaigns they support. Super PACs are barred from coordinating with a candidate. But it doesnt seem clarity is coming anytime soon. The FEC cant agree on new regulations. Take last December, when a Republican super PAC asked commissioners if it could fully coordinate with a Senate candidate. The commission deadlocked on a 3-3 vote after a heated discussion. Michael Toner, a Washington lawyer and election law expert, said it would be a mistake to conclude the failed prosecution of Edwards means campaign finance violations will not be prosecuted. Theres no question that there were relatively unique facts in the Edwards case, he said, and that there are other areas in campaign law where wrongdoing is clear cut such as contributions from foreigners. Its not just the FEC. A divided Congress has shown no appetite to take up the issue in earnest, despite calls for an overhaul by Democrats after a series of federal court rulings including the Supreme Courts Citizens United decision in 2010 started to deregulate the system. Political gridlock and regulatory ambiguity have paved the way for an unprecedented amount of spending from outside groups and special interests. Campaigns, political parties and super PACs supporting President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney have raised more than $400 million apiece, figures that put the election on track to cost more than $1 billion. Despite claims of independence, super PACs have incredibly close ties to the candidates theyre working to help elect. Restore Our Future, supporting Mitt Romney, shares office space with the same consultants who help Romneys own campaign. The groups insist there is a firewall the workspaces are separated, they have said, by a conference room. A former White House spokesman, Bill Burton, runs the Priorities USA Action super PAC with its goal of helping Obama win a second term. The fuzzy rules have super PACs pushing the limits. Many have nonprofit arms that legally dont have to disclose their donors. Some megadonors notably casino mogul Sheldon Adelson have said they will be giving their money to these shelters to avoid public scrutiny. Thats exactly what the laws we have are supposed to prevent, Potter said, that one candidate for public office is not completely beholden to an individual and his interests. Weve been here before. Congress began to change how Americans fund their elections in the mid-1970s after slush funds and cover-ups forced Richard Nixons resignation. I believe that one of the crucial factors in determining whether or not we consider a government democratic is not how much power public officials have, but rather how public officials secure and retain their offices, Lawton Chiles told his colleagues on the Senate floor in April 1974. Since then, theres been no shortage of instances of questionable relationships between politicians and the people who bankroll their candidacies. On the Democratic side, hundreds of Obamas major backers have had repeated access to his top advisers or have attended glamorous state dinners. The White House has declined to offer complete details on those meetings. And on the Republican side, GOP super PACs have faced their own troubles in disclosing donors required under existing rules. Some major contributors have been listed in federal data with ambiguous addresses or shell corporations. Situations like those have fueled voter Anything goes now in campaign financing? Associated PressFormer presidential candidate John Edwards speaks outside a federal courthouse Thursday as his daughter, Cate Edwards, left, and father, Wallace Edwards, listen after his campaignfinance fraud case ended in a mistrial, in Greensboro, N.C. Edwards survived his campaign corruption trial and immediately started talking about his future, saying he wants to become a better father to his four kids and help the poor again. 000BMJV Call 795-5700 Crystal River Inverness Over 2000 participants have joined Gardner Audiologys research studies.

meeting with AHCA representatives was to look at ways to determine an accurate or acceptable amount of debt. For months, county staff has poured over pages of disputed bills from the state. At the end of the meeting, county staff covered specific claims and issues with some of the billings. AHCA representatives will take those issues back to Tallahassee and report back on their findings. One issue is verifying addresses. AHCA will try to offer all counties access to the Department of Children and Families computer system to help verify some of the residential billing claims. County staff gave AHCA members an overview of county billing procedures. They also talked about different options for paying the final bill. AHCA will advise Citrus County about its final bill amount Aug. 1. The county will have 30 days to accept it or challenge it. If the county accepts the total on the final bill from the state, a third of the money will be required to be paid the first year, and the rest of the payments would be spread over the next five years. The county also has joined a lawsuit to challenge the new law. Early in May, the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners voted unanimously to join other counties in a legal complaint against AHCA and the Department of Revenue for this medical billing.

Once she found a job she felt possibly suited her needs, she said Workforce Connection, the regional workforce board that serves Citrus, Levy and Marion counties, helped make sure she and the employer would be a good match and aided in helping her land the new job closer to home. It beats having to check the want ads, McKeever said. It just streamlined everything. For the past two months, Workforce Connection has ranked in the top 10 among the states 24 regional workforce boards for reported job placements. In April, the states boards reported nearly 30,000 Floridians received job placement, according to the monthly job placement report from Workforce Florida and Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. Since January, nearly 124,000 job placements have been reported statewide including about 27,500 job seekers who had been receiving unemployment compensation. According to Laura Byrnes, communications manager for Workforce Connection, there were 99 job placements in Citrus County from March 1 to May 31 in 2011; but this year, only counting May job placement numbers up to May 16, there have already been 122 placements, exceeding those from the full period in 2011 by 23 percent. Additionally, in 2011 during the months of March and April, Citrus averaged 40 job placements a month. This year, it is up to 48.5 placements a month during the same period, Byrnes explained. When asked why using workforce services seem to be yielding positive results for job seekers, Byrnes said it really serves as a onestop shop for people so they dont have to comb through website after website for job listings. Its a time savings, she said. Coupled with receiving professional help from the employment specialists on site at no cost, Byrnes said in the long run, it helps craft great matches between job seekers and employers. McKeever said Workforce Connection really helped by conducting the preliminary interview. She said they took the time to ask what she wanted to do and what her expectations were. They also dug deeper to make sure she was capable of handling the job to ensure longevity. Its kind of like a marriage, she said. Even after the first interview, she said Workforce Connection followed up with her to see if she had any more questions or concerns. She now works for Dixie Hollins doing office work. Ive been working there since August, she said. The job is a perfect fit for what I was looking for. Tom Peterson, president of Villages Services Cooperative Inc. in Hernando, recently used Workforce Connection to find his newest community association manager, Kathi HutsonVincent. Peterson said John Siefert, executive director of the Citrus County Economic Development Council, introduced him to Workforce Connection in April. Originally, he said he wanted to hire a returning veteran to join his property management company, but when the search turned up empty, he broadened his search and found HutsonVincent. Her financial background, coupled with the fact she once had a community management license, helped seal the deal. We snatched her up as quickly as possible, he said. In addition to finding a new employee, Peterson said he is also using Workforce Connection to offer training to his employee using their On-the-Job Training program, which offers reimbursement of employee wages and training costs. For a small business, Peterson said the program is a great way to find qualified employees and save on costs.

NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, JUNE3, 2012 A9 000BJ03 MEDICAIDContinued from Page A1 BOARDContinued from Page A1 Record NM blaze will test forest management Associated PressALBUQUERQUE, N.M. A wall of smoke advances across a vast swath of rugged country in southwestern New Mexico where the nations wilderness movement was born nearly a century ago. From the air, the smoke stretches as far as the eye can see. On the ground, firefighters talk about the steep canyons that keep them from directly attacking what has become the largest wildfire in New Mexicos recorded history and the largest currently burning in the country. Sure, things might look bad. But to land managers and scientists, the record-setting blaze represents a true test of decades of work aimed at returning fire to its natural role on the landscape a test that comes as many Western states grapple with overgrown forests, worsening drought and a growing prospect for more megafires. The Whitewater-Baldy fire has destroyed a dozen cabins while marching across more than 354 square miles of the Gila National Forest. A pair of lightning-sparked fires grew together to form the massive blaze. Unlike last years megafires in New Mexico and Arizona, this blaze is burning in territory that has been frequently blackened under the watchful eye of the Gilas fire managers. Starting in the early 1970s, the Gila has been leading the way when it comes to implementing such an active fire management strategy. Instead of immediately dousing flames in the wilderness, forest managers have let them burn as long as conditions are favorable. The question that the Whitewater-Baldy fire is expected to answer is whether that strategy will pay off with more natural, less intense fires. Theres a great opportunity here to study a fire like this, said Matthew Rollins, the wildland fire science coordinator with the U.S. Geological Surveys National Center in Virginia. The opportunity exists to look at how this fire has behaved differently in terms of vegetation mortality, effects on wildlife and fish habitat and water quality, Rollins said. We can study how it burned in the wilderness relative to areas with other types of fire management strategies and other types of ignition patterns. So far, the word from the fire lines is that the majority of the 227,000-acre blaze has burned with low to moderate intensity, not the kind of near-nuclear strength that was exhibited last year with the Las Conchas blaze in northern New Mexico. In that case, entire mountainsides were vaporized, leaving nothing behind but the white ashy skeletons of what used to be trees. And as for those unburned pockets within the fires boundaries, Rollins said he believes many of those spots have experienced lowintensity fire many times over the last century to make them more resilient. Previously burned areas have also helped slow the flames on the fires eastern flank. The fact that this is wilderness and the wilderness of the Gila has seen a lot of fires, we are comfortable with allowing it to burn. What we do is monitor it and help steer it around to keep some of the impacts lower than they would otherwise be on their own, said Danny Montoya, an operations section chief with the Southwest Incident Management Team. Montoya said the rugged terrain has forced firefighters to attack the flames indirectly by starving the fire of fuels along its perimeter. The smoke also has prevented direct attack from the air. Several helicopters and small planes are helping ground crews with backburn operations. While a burn severity map has yet to be released, members of the incident management team are estimating only 20 percent of the fire has burned at high intensity. Last week, the fire made a 60,000acre run in one day, scorching mixed conifer at high elevations as the flames were pushed by gusts of up to 60 mph. That kind of fire can be devastating, experts said. With fire behavior ranging from active to extreme, it will be some time before the scientists can get on the ground to see how the Gila has fared. Until then, they are working on gathering the decades of research done on the Gila, which is home to the worlds first designated wilderness. It was the father of the wilderness movement, forester and conservationist Aldo Leopold, who pushed for the formation of the Gila Wilderness in 1924. Tree ring data that dates back to the 1500s tells of the forests fire history and the age of its trees. The perimeters of the Gilas fires along with information about their severity and vegetation mortality for the last century have also been compiled by the U.S. Forest Service. Theres also more ecological data from the federal Joint Fire Science program that can be used for comparisons. I think its going to be a success story for the use of fire for managing forests, Rollins said. It might not look like it on TV right now, but we havent had any fatalities or dramatic housing loss like we see in Southern California or it burning so dramatically close to communities like last years Las Conchas fire. Experts agree the Gila will see changes regardless of the severity of the fire. In the worst spots, aspens and other shrubs are expected to take over. When were punching multithousand-acre holes in areas of ponderosa pine and drier mixed conifer types with no seed sources surviving, its very difficult for those conifers to be re-established, said Craig Allen, a USGS ecologist based at Bandelier National Monument in northern New Mexico. Fire managers are also expecting flooding. As the Las Conchas fire showed, steep denuded areas resulted in walls of water washing down canyons during the rainy season.

Fleeing erosion in California LOS ANGELES Years of ferocious storms have threatened to gnaw away the western tip of a popular beachfront park two hours drive north of Los Angeles. Instead of building a 500-footlong wooden defense next to the pier to tame the tide, the latest thinking is to flee. Work is under way to gauge the toll of ripping up parking lots on the highly eroded west end of Goleta Beach County Park and moving a scenic bike path and buried utility lines inland away from lapping waves. Up and down the California coast, some communities are deciding its not worth trying to wall off the encroaching ocean. Until recently, the thought of bowing to nature was almost unheard of. But after futile attempts to curb coastal erosion a problem expected to grow worse with rising seas fueled by global warming there is growing acknowledgment that the sea is relentless and any line drawn in the sand is likely to eventually wash over. I like to think of it as getting out of the way gracefully, said David Revell, a senior coastal scientist at ESA PWA, a San Francisco-based environmental consulting firm.

But he and his sons were cleared of corruption charges, setting off protests for greater accountability for 30 years of abuses under the old regime. By nightfall, a large crowd of up to 10,000 was back in Cairos Tahrir Square, the birthplace of the uprising, to vent anger over the acquittals. Similar protests went on in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria and Suez on the Red Sea. Justice was not served, said Ramadan Ahmed, whose son was killed on Jan. 28, the bloodiest day of last years uprising. Protesters chanted: A farce, a farce, this trial is a farce and The people want execution of the murderer. The case against Mubarak, his sons, and top aides was very limited in scope, focusing only on the uprisings first few days and two narrow corruption cases. It was never going to provide a full accountability of wrongdoing under Mubaraks three decades of authoritarian rule enforced by a brutal police force and a coterie of businessmen linked to the regime who amassed wealth while nearly half of Egypts estimated 85 million people lived in poverty. Mubarak, 84, and his exsecurity chief Habib el-Adly were both convicted of complicity in the killings of some 900 protesters and received life sentences.

Later in the weekend, the queen will make a trip down the River Thames, and then take in a concert all accompanied by tens of thousands of her subjects, coming out to fete a monarch whose longevity has given her the status of the nations favorite grandmother. An armada of vessels from historic sailboats and barges to kayaks, lifeboats and military launches was mustering along the Thames ahead of Sundays river pageant. The queen aboard the royal barge will lead the flotilla of 1,000 boats described by organizers as the biggest gathering on the river for 350 years. Diamond Jubilee festivities officially began Saturday with a 41-gun salute fired by the Kings Troop, Royal Horse Artillery at Horse Guards Parade in central London. The 86-year-old monarch and her husband, Prince Philip, visited Epsom racecourse south of the capital for the Derby, one of the years biggest horse-racing meetings. The queen waved to the 130,000-strong crowd as she was driven down the racecourse in a Bentley bearing the Royal Standard the cars sun roof kept shut under gray skies before settling down to watch the races from the royal box. Dressed in a royal blue coat and matching hat over a blue-andwhite floral dress, the queen was accompanied by members of the royal family including her sons Prince Andrew and Prince Edward and Andrews daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.

Queen off to the races as jubilee events begin Associated PressWASHINGTON The Obama administration is warning American businesses about an unusually potent computer virus that infected Irans oil industry even as suspicions persist that the United States is responsible for secretly creating and unleashing cyberweapons against foreign countries. The governments dual roles of alerting U.S. companies about these threats and producing powerful software weapons and eavesdropping tools underscore the risks of an unintended, online boomerang. Unlike a bullet or missile fired at an enemy, a cyberweapon that spreads across the Internet may circle back accidentally to infect computers it was never supposed to target. Its one of the unusual challenges facing the programmers who build such weapons, and presidents who must decide when to launch them. The Homeland Security Departments warning about the new virus, known as Flame, assured U.S. companies that no infections had been discovered so far inside the U.S. It described Flame as an espionage tool that was sophisticated in design, using encryption and other techniques to help break into computers and move through corporate or private networks. The virus can eavesdrop on data traffic, take screenshots and record audio and keystrokes. The department said the origin is a mystery. The White House has declined to discuss the virus. But suspicions about the U.S. governments role in the use of cyberweapons were heightened by a report in Fridays New York Times. Based on anonymous sources, it said President Barack Obama secretly had ordered the use of another sophisticated cyberweapon, known as Stuxnet, to attack the computer systems that run Irans main nuclear enrichment facilities. The order was an extension of a sabotage program the Timessaid began during the Bush administration. Private security researchers long have suspected the U.S. and Israeli governments were responsible for Stuxnet. But the newspapers detailed description of conversations in the Oval Office among Obama, the vice president and the CIA director about the U.S. governments responsibility for Stuxnet is the most direct evidence of this to date. U.S. officials rarely discuss the use of cyberweapons outside of classified settings. Stuxnet is believed to have been released as early as 2009. Cyberwar risks a new reality Clinton urges cooperation in resource-rich Arctic Associated PressTROMSO, Norway U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Saturday ventured north of the Arctic Circle and urged international cooperation in a region that could become a new battleground for natural resources. On her trip to the northern Norwegian city of Tromso, she conveyed that message of working together in one of the worlds last frontiers of unexplored oil, gas and mineral deposits. The region is becoming more significant as melting icecaps accelerate the opening of new shipping routes, fishing stocks and drilling opportunities. To safely tap the riches, the U.S. and other countries near the North Pole are trying to cooperate to combat harmful climate change, settle territorial disputes and prevent oil spills. The world increasingly looks to the North, Clinton told reporters after a twohour boat tour of the nearby Balsfjord and meeting with Arctic scientists. Our goal is certainly to promote peaceful cooperation, she said, adding that the U.S. was committed to promoting responsible management of resources and doing all we can to prevent and mitigate the effects of climate change. At the least, the U.S. and the other Arctic nations hope to avoid a confrontational race for resources. Officials say the picture looks more promising than five years ago when Russia staked its claim to supremacy in the Arctic and its $9 trillion in estimated oil reserves by planting a titanium flag on the ocean floor. The United States does not recognize the Russian assertion and has its own claims, along with Denmark, Norway and Canada, while companies from Exxon Mobil Corp. to Royal Dutch Shell PLC want to get in on the action. China also is keeping a close eye on the region.

Associated Press State begins $5 M tourism push; revives old icon DAVIDMCFADDEN Associated PressKINGSTON, JamaicaArchaeologists have said that theyll ask the United Nations cultural agency to bestow world heritage status on Port Royal, the mostly submerged remains of a historic Jamaican port known as the wickedest city on Earth more than three centuries ago.Receiving the designation from UNESCO would place Port Royal in the company of global marvels such as Cambodias Angkor temple complex and Indias Taj Mahal. The sunken 17th century city was once a bustling place where buccaneers, including Henry Morgan, docked in search of rum, women and boat repairs. In recent days, international consultants have conducted painstaking surveys to mark the old citys land and sea boundaries to apply for the world heritage designation by June 2014, said Dorrick Gray, a technical director with the Jamaican National Heritage Trust, a government agency responsible for preserving and developing the islands cultural spots. Port Royal was the main city of the British colony of Jamaica in the 17th century until an earthquake and tsunami submerged two-thirds of the settlement in 1692. It boasted a well-todo population of roughly 7,000 at the time, and was comparable to Boston during the same period. After the quake, the remainder of the town served as a British royal navy base for two centuries, even as it was periodically ravaged by fires and hurricanes. In his sprawling book Caribbean, American author James Michener described Port Royal as having no restraints of any kind, and the soldiers stationed in the fort seemed as undisciplined as the pirates who roared ashore to take over the place night after night. They were of all breeds, all with nefarious occupations. Now, its a depressed fishing village at the tip of a spit of land near Kingstons airport. It has little to attract visitors except some restaurants offering seafood and a few dilapidated historic buildings. The sunken, algae-covered remnants of the city are in murky waters in an archaeological preserve closed to divers without a permit. But in recent decades, underwater excavations have turned up artifacts including cannonballs, wine glasses, ornate pipes, pewter plates and ceramic plates dredged from the muck just offshore. The partial skeleton of a child was found in 1998. At a Tuesday press conference, experts said its among the top British archaeological sites in the Western Hemisphere and should be protected for future generations. There is outstanding potential here. Submerged towns like this just do not exist anywhere else in the Americas, said Robert Grenier, a Canadian underwater archaeologist who has worked closely with UNESCO. He believes the Jamaican site has a strong chance of getting on the world heritage list. Texas A&M University nautical archaeologist Donny Hamilton said the consulting team has completed the fieldwork for the world heritage assessment and is working on a management plan. He said Port Royal could become a sustainable attraction for tourists but first theres got to be something above the ground that people are going to want to come and see. Jamaican officials and businessmen have announced various strategies to renovate the ramshackle town over the years, including plans for modern cruise liners and a Disney-style theme park featuring actors dressed as pirates. Some area businessmen have grown exasperated with the slow pace of development.

A12SUNDAY, JUNE3, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: My sister, Lois, has been seeing Desmond for a year. This guy is toxic. He does absolutely nothing for her and expects everything in return. He tells her how to dress and whom she can and cannot speak to. Lois and her children (from a previous relationship) lived with Desmond until shed had enough. She then asked to move in with me, and I welcomed her with open arms. When Lois came here, she was sickly looking. Her skin was gray and her eyes were sunken. After some time away from Desmond, however, she seemed to perk up, becoming her old, bubbly self. The problem is, Lois recently has taken up with Desmond again and is lying to everyone about it. She claims that she met someone new through a dating site, but her browser history shows otherwise. She doesnt know that I know the truth. I keep her secret because I dont want to cause a problem, but I am so afraid that she will go back to him and take my nephews with her. This guy should not be a role model for anyone. I also believe there may be drugs involved. If she goes back to him, I worry that my mother will die of heartbreak. Lately, Lois has been speaking of wanting her freedom. I cant understand why she would return to someone who treats her like his servant. Should I tell her I know she is lying? I dont want to lose whats left of our relationship. Sister Mess Dear Sister: Dont accuse Lois of lying. Instead, talk to her about her decisions. Ask, without judgment, whether she is seeing Desmond again. Sympathize with her addiction to this guy, but point out how much happier she seems without him and that her children are better off, especially if drugs are involved. You could even suggest counseling to help her make better choices. Unfortunately, if Lois is determined to go back to Desmond, theres not much you can do.

Humane Society OF CITRUS COUNTY Dante You would think this little fellow believes he belongs in the show ring the way he prances when hes out for a walk. Dante is about 1 year old, weighs about 12 pounds, and is a friendly little fellow. He loves people and gets along well with other dogs his size. Judging from his appearance and the way he moves, we believe he is an Italian greyhound mix (possibly mixed with miniature pinscher). His medical is up to date and he is crate trained. An approved adoption application and adoption fee are required. To access the adoption application or to view other adoptable pets, visit the website at www.roomforonemore.net. For more information, call Karron at 352-586-9699.Special to the Chronicle Apenthouse in Manhattan just sold for $90 million, which broke the record set last year when the 22-year-old daughter of a Russian billionaire spent $88 million on a Park Avenue pad that she plans to use during the few weeks a year when shes in town. (Its still hard for me to say Russian billionaire after years of thinking of Russia as a place full of empty, government-run stores where toilet paper if there was any was a luxury item.) In other big real estate news, someone bought a parking spot in the garage of a Manhattan building for a million dollars. Theyre kidding, right? Whos going to believe that someone who can blow a million dollars on a parking spot has only one car? Even I have two cars, and Im only, oh, a million dollars shy of having a million dollars. One of my cars is nine years old; the other is seven. But Im not jealous. This guy is obviously one of those people the news media now call job creators. If only we would lower his taxes, this guy could afford to buy two million-dollar parking spots and buy another car. Thats how you create jobs. When you and I buy a car, jobs are not created because were not rich. But when a rich person buys a car, tons of jobs are created. Thats why we all have to chip in and lower taxes for the wealthy. Why is that so hard to understand? What kind of car would someone park in a milliondollar parking space? A Ford? A Chevy? No, its probably one of those expensive European cars. Maybe a Porsche or a BMW. No, even that wont cut it. If youre spending a million dollars on a parking spot, youre probably driving one of those million-dollar cars like a Maybach or a Ferrari or a Lamborghini. Which would create a lot of manufacturing jobs in Europe. Of course, a lot of people think youd be crazy to own a car in a place like Manhattan. You can walk faster than you can drive there. You need a car in Manhattan like you need a rowboat in the Sahara. Then again, a lot of people think youre crazy if you walk in Manhattan. Its a lose-lose situation. Think of the wear and tear on the vehicle. How many times do you have to hear, Yo, buddy, it hurt my hand when I opened the cab door and dinged your Masarati. Id sue you, but Im in a hurry! before you stop taking the car out of the garage at all? Everybody knows parking is expensive in Manhattan. I was there on business last year and parked in one of the many underground garages. It was $5.95 for the first halfhour. Three hours later, I paid the $25 bill (plus $2 tip) and headed for home. As I pulled out of the garage, I saw a sign for another parking garage right across the street. It charged only $5.94 for the first half-hour. Free-market competition like that keeps parking prices low, low, low. Still, if you lived there, you could park your car at many parking garages in Manhattan for a monthly rate of $500. As outrageous as that may sound to the normal homeowner, it still is a deal compared to spending a million on a single parking spot. There used to be a show on TV in the late s called The Millionaire. A character named Michael Anthony would show up at someones front door and hand the shocked residents a cashiers check for a million dollars, tax-free, from reclusive gazillionaire John Beresford Tipton. There was one stipulation: They could never say where they got the money. Back then, a million dollars meant something; it could change your life. You could buy houses and cars for your friends and family. Now it buys you a parking space for a car.Jim Mullens newest book, How to Lose Money in Your Spare Time At Home, is available at amazon.com.

Many players still within grasp of PGA victory Associated PressDUBLIN, Ohio Spencer Levin realizes that a one-shot lead going into the final round means next to nothing. If he didnt learn this by blowing a six-shot lead at the Phoenix Open earlier this year, he was reminded of it on the back nine Saturday at the Memorial. For the longest time, Levin simply couldnt miss. He chipped in for eagle from behind the fifth green. He holed a chip from 30 yards short of the 10th green for birdie, this one giving him a fourshot lead on a tough day at Muirfield Village. Eight holes later, his lead was down to one over Rory Sabbatini. If that wasnt enough, a collection of stars and proven players were lined up behind him including four-time Memorial champion Tiger Woods. Levin relied on a few good breaks and one good par save to match the low round of the day with a 3-under 69, giving him another chance at his first PGA Tour victory and an opportunity to get into the U.S. Open on Sunday without having to go through a 36-hole qualifier. The circumstances are far different from when Levin lost that six-shot lead in Phoenix, not only the margin but the caliber of players chasing him. Hell find out Sunday if he learned from his failure, though the self-styled Californian already is loaded with perspective. I did learn that I still got to play golf, I still got to eat the same stuff, still have the same friends, still have the same family, so College baseball, softball/ B2 Golf/B2 MLB/B3 TV, lottery/B4 Auto Racing, sports briefs/ B5 Dr. Ron Joseph/ B5 Entertainment/ B6 Florida teams a win away from advancing to NCAA baseball Super Regionals./B2 SPORTSSection BSUNDAY, JUNE 3, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE TB tied with Baltimore for first place in AL East Associated PressST. PETERSBURG, Fla. Brian Matusz gave the sliding Baltimore Orioles a huge lift. Matusz gave up two hits in 7 13 innings and the Orioles ended a six-game losing streak by holding off the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1 Saturday. Every time I step on the mound, I want to go out there and compete and bring my best game, but to end a losing streak is definitely a good feeling, Matusz said. Its nice to go out there and get back on the winning side of things. Matusz (5-5) didnt give up a hit until the fifth inning. He struck out seven and walked three. I just attacked the zone and got ahead, and the Rays were swinging the bat so I got a lot of outs early in the count, Matusz said. When you have a good rhythm and good flow, its nice to just go out there and pound the strike zone with confidence. Reliever Pedro Strop got Ben Zobrist to ground into a basesloaded double play in the eighth. Jim Johnson pitched the ninth for his 17th save, completing the combined two-hitter. You know youve got a really good one when they can close a one-run game out on the road against the American League East, and Jimmys done that for us this year, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

After seeing his teams 15point lead dwindle to four, Durant took over midway through the fourth quarter by scoring all 16 of the Thunders points during a span of just over 5 minutes to keep the Spurs at bay. With All-Star teammate Russell Westbrook limited to seven points, Durant did almost all of the damage late to send the series back to San Antonio all square for Game 5 on Monday night. Tim Duncan had 21 points for San Antonio, which had won 20 in a row before losing Game 3. Schiavone upset, Murray wins at French Open Associated PressPARIS Mikhail Youzhny was having such a bad day in the third round of the French Open that he felt the need to apologize, right on court during the match. The 27th-seeded Russian scraped SORRI into the clay with his right foot in the middle of his 6-0, 6-2, 6-2 loss to No. 6 David Ferrer on Saturday. There was a lot of people. Thats why I write sorry. Because I cant show them a nice game, Youzhny said. The way we played in the beginning, it was not really interesting for people. Youzhny is well-known for a more painful on-court meltdown. In 2008 at the Sony Ericsson Open, Youzhny whacked himself in the head with his racket three times after losing a point. The antic left him with a thick stream of blood running from his hairline down his nose. Also Saturday, 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone was upset by Varvara Lepchenko of the United States 3-6, 6-3, 8-6, and fourthseeded Petra Kvitova defeated Nina Bratchikova of Russia 6-2, 4-6, 6-1. Lepchenko, who was born in Uzbekistan but lives in Allentown, Pa., is unseeded at Roland Garros and had never before made it past the second round at any Grand Slam tournament. She had 44 unforced errors against Schiavone, but still managed to advance. Its her court, you know, Lepchenko said. I knew that shes not going to give it for free. I had to work really hard, and I did.

Lewis two-day total of 130 leads Anna Nordqvist, who shot a 67, by six strokes and holds a seven-stroke edge over the third-place foursome of So Yoen Ryu, Azahara Munoz, Katherine Hull and Paula Creamer. Nordqvist rebounded nicely in the second round, surging from sixth place the first day.Jay Haas opens 3-stroke lead in IowaWEST DES MOINES, Iowa Jay Haas will carry a threeshot lead into the final round of the Principal Charity Classic after shooting a 6-under 65 on Saturday. Haas, who won the Champions Tour event at Glen Oaks Country Club in 2007 and 2008, will try to become the first golfer to win three times in Iowa. He is at 11 under following his bogey-free performance in the second round. Larry Mize eagled the 18th hole to get within three of Haas at 8 under. Tom Lehman is four strokes back, followed by Andrew Magee at 6 under. Fred Funk and Kenny Perry lead four players at 5-under 137.

FSU needs just one more win to advance to the Super Regionals. Sunshine State slams foes FSU, UF, UCF all one win away from NCAA Super Regionals Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Brandon Leibrandt pitched eight scoreless innings and James Ramsey hit a grand slam as FloridaState defeated Samford 8-1 on Saturday in the Tallahassee Regional. Leibrandt (11-2) scattered three singles, just one after the first inning. The freshman left-hander, whose father is former big league pitcher Charlie Leibrandt, fanned a careerhigh 10 batters before leaving after throwing 110 pitches. Ramsey, the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year, hit his first grand slam in the seventh inning off Samfords Joseph Burns, who relieved Josh Martin (12-2) to face Ramsey. Sherman Johnson scored three times and also homered for FloridaState (4515). Jayce Boyd added two hits and two RBIs for the Seminoles. The Seminoles play the winner of Sunday afternoons elimination game between Samford (40-22) and Mississippi State (4023), which eliminated UAB 8-1 earlier Saturday. C.K. Irbys two-out, ninth inning single off reliever Hunter Scantling spoiled FloridaStates shutout bid. Florida 6, Georgia Tech 2GAINESVILLE Mike Zunino and Preston Tucker homered, and top-seeded Florida beat Georgia Tech 6-2 in the Gainesville Regional. Zuninos solo shot in the fourth sparked a three-run inning that was key in a testy game. Tucker added a towering, two-run shot in the ninth. The game had plenty of drama. Umpires reversed a strikeout call at the end of the third inning, sending Georgia Tech back to the dugout and Florida back on the field. Techs Jake Davies eventually struck out, making the call moot, but he tipped his hat to Florida fans booing him. Zunino, who was involved in the disputed call, homered to open the fourth. Georgia Tech coach Danny Hall was ejected in the fifth while arguing an aggressive slide at second base. In the seventh, Tech catcher Zane Evans yelled at Florida shortstop Nolan Fontana following a play at the plate. Fontana kicked Evans facemask after getting thrown out trying to score.UCF 9, Stony Brook 8CORAL GABLES Darnell Sweeney and Jeramy Matos each hit three-run homers to power UCF to a 9-8 win over Stony Brook in the Coral Gables Regional. Stony Brook (47-12), which snapped a 12-game winning streak, will face Missouri State in an elimination game on Sunday. The Seawolves scored three runs in the eighth, but their rally came up short as Joe Rogers pitched the final 1 1/3 innings for his 13th save. UCF (45-15) has won both of its games and can win the regional with a win over the Stony Brook-Missouri State winner. Matos broke a 5-all tie in the sixth with his homer. Chris Taladay stretched the lead to 9-5 with a sacrifice fly. Chris Matulis (7-0) allowed four runs in five relief innings for the win. Brandon McNitt (83) gave up eight runs six earned in six innings.Mizzou St. 12, Miami 2CORAL GABLES Kennen Maddox drove in four runs to lead Missouri State to a 12-2 win over Miami in an elimination game in the Coral Gables Regional. Miami finished 36-23 and failed to win a tournament game for the first since since going 0-2 in the 1993 South Regional at Baton Rouge, La. In the two losses this year, the Hurricanes were outscored 224. Miami had won 13 straight regional championships when serving as the host. Missouri State (40-21) scored seven runs in the first inning sending 11 batters to the plate off Steven Ewing (6-3), who lasted just two-thirds of an inning. USF bounced from Womens CWS Associated PressOKLAHOMA CITY LSUs A.J. Andrews scored on an infield fly in the sixth inning to lead the Tigers to a 1-0 win over South Florida on Saturday in the Womens College World Series. The only two unseeded teams in the tournament, LSU and South Florida (5014) were locked in a pitchers duel. Hit by a pitch to start the sixth, Andrews moved to third after a long fly ball from Ashley Langoni bounced off center fielder Janine Richardsons glove at the warning track. Allison Falcon lofted a fly ball two batters later forcing USF shortstop Kourtney Salvarola to the edge of the outfield grass. Andrews tagged from third and thrust her left hand in to grab a corner of the plate on a wide slide around USF catcher Laura Fountain. LSU senior Brittany Mack finished off her 15th career shutout, allowing two hits and advancing LSU to a Saturday night elimination game against Arizona State. USF starter Sara Nevins again was plagued by footwork problems in the circle. Against LSU, play was stopped three times for Nevins illegal pitches but she was able to make the adjustment and allow two hits and an unearned run. Nevins was called for seven illegal pitches on Thursday against Oklahoma resulting in her abandoning her changeup and the Sooners collecting five hits, including a two-run home run.Arizona State 6, LSU 0OKLAHOMA CITY Defending champion Arizona State staved off elimination with a 6-0 win over LSU in the Womens College World Series. The Sun Devils will have to beat No. 4 seed Oklahoma twice Sunday afternoon to advance to Mondays championship series. The Sooners (52-8) did not play on Saturday after beating South Florida Thursday and then California Friday. Alix Johnson was a big part of two big ASU innings. In the third she broke a scoreless tie with a three-run home run on the first pitch from LSU starter Rachele Fico. In the fifth, Johnson singled, stole second and scored along with Haley Steele, and Amber Freeman with the help of a single from Sam Parlich. ASU starter Hillary Bach was called for five illegal pitches for lifting her pivot foot but settled down to finish the four-hitter. It was her 11th this season. LSU ends its season at 40-25.

Ricky Nolasco (6-3) allowed four runs on eight hits in seven-plus innings to improve to 6-1 in seven career starts at Philadelphia for the Marlins. Miami has won four of its last five and denied Cole Hamels (82) his ninth victory. Jose Reyes had an RBI double to extend his hitting streak to 13 games. Hunter Pence homered for the second straight game for the Phillies, who lost for just the third time in 10 games. Ramirez homered in his second straight at-bat in the sixth, a two-run shot to left, to give Miami a 4-3 lead. After Omar Infante led off the inning with an infield single, Ramirez drove Hamels 2-2 changeup into the seats in left for his 12th career multihomer game.NATIONAL LEAGUE Nationals 2, Braves 0WASHINGTON Stephen Strasburg pitched four-hit ball for seven sharp innings and Jesus Flores homered, leading the Washington Nationals over the Atlanta Braves 2-0. Strasburg (6-1) completed seven shutout innings for the first time in his major league career. He opened the game with a flourish, striking out the first four Braves batters. Strasburg struck out nine, walked none and threw 90 pitches. Twice he gave up singles and then induced double-play grounders. Sean Burnett allowed two singles in a scoreless eighth and Tyler Clippard pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save in fifth chances. Brandon Beachy (5-4) allowed just three hits in 6 1-3 innings.Mets 5, Cardinals 0NEW YORK R.A. Dickey followed up Johan Santanas no-hitter by shutting out St. Louis, David Wright homered and the New York Mets beat the Cardinals 5-0. Dickey (8-1) gave up seven hits, struck out nine and walked none in his third career shutout first this season. The Mets scored three runs in the second, on a mishandled grounder and two run-scoring groundouts to win for the sixth time in eight games. Carlos Beltran had a clean double against Dickey in the second inning a day after he hit a shot down the line that looked fair but was ruled foul against Santana. The Cardinals have lost four straight and seven of nine.Dodgers 6, Rockies 2DENVER Aaron Harang pitched six strong innings, Bobby Abreu homered for the first time this year and the Los Angeles Dodgers ended a season-worst fivegame losing streak with a 6-2 win over the Colorado Rockies. Andre Ethier and Elian Herrera had two hits and two RBIs each and James Loney also had two hits for the Dodgers. Michael Cuddyer and Wilin Rosario had RBI doubles and DJ LeMahieu had two hits for the Rockies, who had their five-game win streak snapped. A day after the Rockies roughed up Los Angeles pitchers for 13 runs on 15 hits, Harang (4-3) held Colorados suddenly potent offense to one run on four hits.Giants 2, Cubs 1SAN FRANCISCO Matt Cain pitched into the ninth inning on the way to winning his fifth straight start and the San Francisco Giants beat the Chicago Cubs 2-1. Aubrey Huff drew a bases-loaded walk to tie the game at 1 in the sixth, then San Francisco went ahead on an RBI fielders choice by Joaquin Arias on which Huff broke up a would-be double play. Huff produced his first RBI since April 16 and just his fifth this season after he spent a stint on the disabled list with anxiety disorder and is no longer a regular. David DeJesus homered but it wasnt enough to help the Cubs avoid their ninth straight road loss. It is Chicagos longest skid away from Wrigley Field since also dropping nine in a row from Aug. 25 to Sept. 10, 2006.Brewers 5, Pirates 1MILWAUKEE Brooks Conrad ended his 0-for-27 slump to start the season, hitting a homer and driving in three runs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers past the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-1. Shawn Marcum (4-3) pitched seven strong innings for Milwaukee, giving up five hits while striking out eight without a walk. Pirates starter Erik Bedard (3-6) lasted just 3 2-3 innings. He allowed five hits, five runs and three walks in his shortest outing of the season other than a May 9 game against Washington that he left in the second because of back spasms. Cody Ransom had a two-run single for Milwaukee and Rickie Weeks hitting just .158 coming in reached base all four times with two hits and two walks.D-backs 4, Padres 2SAN DIEGO Daniel Hudson pitched eight strong innings and Paul Goldschmidt homered, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 4-2 win over the San Diego Padres. The Diamondbacks, who have scored two runs or less in three of their last four games, got an assist from San Diego reliever Joe Thatcher, who balked in the goahead run in the seventh inning. Hudson, making his second start since coming off the disabled list, allowed two runs on five hits while striking out five and walking one. Hudson also had a sacrifice fly. Goldschmidt extended his career-best hitting streak to 11 games with a solo homer in the fifth inning into the second deck in left field that tied the score 2-all.AMERICAN LEAGUE Red Sox 7, Blue Jays 4TORONTO Felix Doubront won for the fifth time in six starts, Nick Punto homered and the Boston Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 7-4. Punto fell a triple shy of the cycle and drove in two runs to lead Boston to its 10th win in 14 games. Daniel Nava also had two RBIs as the Red Sox (28-25) moved a season-high three games above .500. Doubront (6-2) allowed three runs, two earned, and seven hits in 6 1-3 innings, improving to 5-1 with a 2.72 ERA in his past five starts. The left-hander walked one, struck out seven and matched a career-high by allowing two home runs.Athletics 9, Royals 3KANSAS CITY, Mo. The struggling Oakland Athletics took advantage of some bumbling Kansas City defense to pile up their most offense in more than three weeks, helping them snap a ninegame losing streak with a 9-3 victory over the Royals. Brandon McCarthy (4-3) came off the disabled list to throw six innings, Jemile Weeks reached base four times and Josh Reddick had a two-run triple during a four-run fifth for Oakland. The As nine runs surpassed their total from the previous six games combined. One of the worst offenses in baseball hardly looked like it against Luke Hochevar (3-6), who has become something of a salve for scuffling attacks. The former first overall draft pick allowed six runs in 4 2-3 innings, the sixth time hes failed to get past the fifth this season.Mariners 10, White Sox 8, 12 inningsCHICAGO Ichiro Suzuki homered twice, John Jaso hit a tiebreaking double in the 12th inning and the Seattle Mariners ended Chicagos nine-game winning streak by beating the White Sox 10-8. Jesus Montero led off the 10th with a double against Addison Reed (0-1). One out later, Jaso drove in pinch-runner Munenori Kawasaki. Chone Figgins followed with an RBI single. Tom Wilhelmsen (2-1) pitched three scoreless innings, allowing one hit, for the victory. Hisashi Iwakuma earned his second save by pitching the 12th, retiring Adam Dunn on a grounder with a runner on second to end it. Chicagos Dayan Viciedo tied the game with a two-out solo homer in the eighth off Stephen Pryor the eighth home run of the game, four by each team.Twins 7, Indians 4CLEVELAND Joe Mauer broke out of a slump with three hits and three RBIs, including a two-run homer, to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 7-4 win over the Cleveland Indians. Mauer entered the game in an 0-for-10 skid, but had an RBI single in Minnesotas four-run first inning. He also singled in the second and hit a two-run homer in the seventh off Tony Sipp. East Division WLPctGBWCL10StrHomeAway Baltimore3023.5663-7W-114-1316-10 Tampa Bay3023.5665-5L-118-1112-12 New York2823.549117-3W-214-1114-12 Boston2825.528227-3W-213-1415-11 Toronto2726.509333-7L-215-1212-14 Central Division WLPctGBWCL10StrHomeAway Chicago3023.5669-1L-113-1417-9 Cleveland2824.538114-6L-116-1512-9 Detroit2428.462554-6L-111-1313-15 Kan.

The event was overshadowed by the resignation of John McGraw as manager of the New York Giants. 1954 Henry Thompson of the New York Giants hit three home runs and drove in eight runs in a 13-8 win against the St. Louis Cardinals. Willie Mays drove in the other five runs with two homers. 1971 Ken Holtzman of the Chicago Cubs pitched his second no-hitter, beating the Cincinnati Reds 1-0. 1978 Dave Johnson became the first major leaguer to hit two pinch-hit grand slams in a season. His grand slam in the ninth inning gave the Philadelphia Phillies a 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. 1989 Los Angeles and Houston played 22 innings at the Astrodome in the longest night game in National League history 7 hours and 14 minutes. The Astros won the game on Rafael Ramirezs RBI single off Jeff Hamilton, normally the Dodgers third baseman. When the game ended, Fernando Valenzuela was playing first and Eddie Murray was at third. 1989 Nolan Ryan pitched his 11th career one-hitter and struck out 11 as Texas beat Seattle 6-1. It was Ryans 16th low-hit game (no-hitter or one-hitter), breaking Bob Fellers record of 15. 1995 Pedro Martinez of Montreal pitched nine perfect innings against San Diego before giving up a leadoff double to Bip Roberts in the 10th inning of the Expos 1-0 win. 2003 Sammy Sosa was ejected in the first inning of Chicagos 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays after umpires found cork in his shattered bat. 2006 Damion Easley hit three homers and had seven RBIs in Arizonas 13-9 victory over Atlanta. 2008 Randy Johnson took sole possession of second place on baseballs career strikeout list after getting the Milwaukee Brewers Mike Cameron to go down swinging in the first inning. It was Johnsons 4,673rd career strikeout, breaking a tie with Roger Clemens and leaving the Arizona Diamondbacks veteran ace behind only Nolan Ryan, who had 5,714 strikeouts in his career.

Fourth-seeded Andy Murray of Britain reached the fourth round with a 6-3, 6-4, 64 victory over Colombias Santiago Giraldo. Murray, who complained of a bad back in his secondround win over Jarkko Nieminen, showed no ill effects in the third round a 2 hour, 2 minute win in which he never lost his serve and faced break point only once. Youzhny won his first game early in the second set, making it 2-1. He held serve at love when Ferrer sent a forehand return into the net. But instead of heading straight for his chair for the changeover, he stopped just inside the service line and started writing out his message. A ball boy stood nearby with Youzhnys towel, and then backed off as the Russian continued drawing out the letters. People in the stands may not have noticed, but I think I had to do this, Youzhny said. nothing really changed, he said. Obviously, you want to win when youre in positions. But Im just going to go out there tomorrow and have fun. Nothing really changed in my life, and I dont think anything will change that big in my life if I do win. Its just going out there and try and do my best. It might take more than that.

While sitting at my daughters swim club practice, I started reading about the current group of American swimmers and their quest to make the Olympic team at the Olympic Trials in Omaha this June. Many veterans, even 40-year-old Janet Evans, are trying to make the team. You would think that if these athletes have been consistently winning their events all year long, that they would be tapped for the Olympic team. However, in almost every Olympic sport it is up to one meet the Olympic trials. You must finish in the top two, in some sports the top three, to qualify for the U.S. Olympic Team. Four years of training to be able to compete in the Olympics comes down to one meet. One event lasting between nine seconds and 10 minutes, a couple of hours for the marathon, three jumps or five dives. In some sports, you have a shot at several Olympics if good enough. In other sports, it is the one chance in a lifetime. In reading the interviews of some of the competing swimmers, almost every comment notes the trials are more exciting and nerve-racking than the Olympics. Thus for many Americans who rank as the best in the world in their event, they have already peaked well before the Olympics even start. As an Olympian in one sport and a Big Ten/NCAA athlete in another sport, you learn the regional qualifiers are the gateway to nationals and thus to the Olympics. It is so easy to write about while sitting on the couch, so hard to do in the commitment in the years of training, dedication of family and finances. In figure skating you had to win the regionals to even get to nationals. So many kids and individuals peak for regionals then get to nationals and lose the edge and excitement because they just made it to nationals. My wife, who ran for University of Arizona, always did great in the NCAA regional and got to nationals but could never run her best. When working in Jacksonville last week, the NCAA southeast regional track championships were being held. While talking to some of the competitors, it was startling to see how few could really see beyond the regionals to the big picture or have the competitive endurance to extend their season to achieve an Olympic goal. Through all the competitive steps and hours of training, an injury could be one boxers punch, one hurdlers misstep, one divers awkward entry into the water or one vaulters grip giving out that will making the training schedule difficult to keep or even prevent being able to compete. To be in the Olympics let alone achieve a medal, takes the ultimate alignment of talent, training and sports psychology and remaining injury-free. It comes down to one race in the trials to qualify, and one race at the Olympics to medal. The top athletes are the best athletes to be able to do both!Ron Joseph, M.D, a hand and shoulder orthopedic specialist at SeaSpine Orthopedic Institute can be reached at rbjhand@cox.net or 352-212-5359. Dr. Ron JosephDOCTORS ORDERS RecreationBRIEFS Sprint Cup pole is Martins Logano wins Nationwide race at Dover Associated PressDOVER, Del. Mark Martin has more poles than candles on the birthday cake. Not bad for a driver pushing limits in a stock car long after so many elite athletes have settled into retirement. Martin took the last qualifying ride of the day and turned a lap of 158.297 mph on Saturday to win the pole at Dover International Speedway. The 53-year-old Martin now has 54 career Sprint Cup poles and won it in the No. 55 Toyota. That 53-54-55 trifecta paid off big for Martin on the Monster Mile. Even with all those 50s, Martin is no golden oldie. He has three poles this season in 10 races while racing a limited schedule for Michael Waltrip Racing. Hes looking for his first Cup win Sunday since 2009. I feel like a lucky guy to be strapping in that 55, Martin said. Waltrip was among the first to greet Martin after the winning lap. Im so proud of you. Thats amazing, Waltrip told him. Martin has turned into a driver-for-hire over the latter stages of a career that has seen him do it all except win a Cup championship. He spent the past three seasons with Hendrick Motorsports, but changed teams in the offseason, joining Waltrip for a partial season. Martin is slated to run 24 of 36 races this season while sharing seat time with Waltrip. He has four top-10 finishes over his first nine races and was third at Texas. Theyre learning about me, Im learning about them, and were having a blast, Martin said. Jimmie Johnson, who was six career wins at Dover, was poised to earn the top spot with a lap of 158.263 mph until Martin knocked him off.Nationwide race at Dover goes to LoganoDOVER, Del. Joey Logano had wasted enough shots at winning Dover to feel like he was on the brink of doing it again. Out in front for most of the race, Logano fell back after a four-tire pit stop, paving the way for Ryan Truex to take the lead. Back in the pack, Logano wondered if hed blown another win at Dover. I was thinking the same thing was happening today, Logano said. It figures. Logano instead powered his way to the lead with six laps left when Truex got mired in lapped traffic on Saturday to win the Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway. When you lead it and you think you gave it away, and then you get it back there at the end, Logano said, thats exciting. Truex started from the pole and raced for the first time since he needed an appendectomy nearly two weeks ago. He had the top car toward the end of the race until he got loose with less than 10 laps left. Logano capitalized and made the late charge outside through a pair lapped drivers to zip past Truex for his fourth Nationwide win of the season. Im not happy, Truex said. Its second and I should be happy with it, but we had a winning car.

Edwards mistress publishing bookRALEIGH, N.C. John Edwards mistress Rielle Hunter is publishing a memoir about her relationship with the former presidential candidate and their daughter. Jennifer Canzoneri, marketing manager at Dallas-based BenBella Books, said What Really Happened is set to be released June 26. Edwards and Hunter had an affair while the Democrat was running for the White House in 2008 and have a daughter together, Frances Quinn Hunter. On Thursday, a jury acquitted Edwards on one count of illegally accepting campaign contributions and deadlocked on five other charges. He had been accused of orchestrating a plan to use money from campaign donors to hide Hunter while he ran for the White House. His relationship with Hunter currently remains unclear. Fans toss chairs after show stopsBUFFALO, N.Y. Fans of the country music singer Eric Church smashed chairs and threw bottles and cans after his planned concert in Buffalo was canceled due to bad weather. The Buffalo Newsreported organizers of the WYRK Taste of Country concert decided to halt the multi-act show at around 11 p.m. Friday after strong winds threatened the stage at Buffalos Coca Cola Field. Church had originally been scheduled to go on at about 9:45 p.m. Some fans, who had been waiting in heavy rain, responded by hurling chairs onto the stage, or dumping them into large piles. The singer issued a statement saying he was bummed about the cancellation. Elvis celebrated at festival TUPELO, Miss. Elvis Presley fans and impersonators have taken over this city where the King of Rock n Roll was born. The 2012 Elvis Festival is in full-swing with Elvis impersonators squaring off in a singing contest at the Lyric Theatre.

On Saturday, sporting events, a downtown Elvis parade, an Elvis lookalike pet parade and other events were on tap. The festival wraps up Sunday. Associated PressNEW YORK Claude Monets beloved flower and water gardens in the north of France are worldfamous. But for those unable to visit the artists iconic home, a trip to the Bronx over the next several months will offer a taste of Monets indisputably radiant living masterpiece a riotous display of color, plant variety and landscape design. Monets Garden at the New York Botanical Garden evokes Monets lush garden at Giverny, the impressionists home from 1883 until his death in 1926. A passionate gardener who once declared, I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers, Monet found endless inspiration from his exuberant gardens. The water garden alone accounts for some 250 paintings, including a series of monumental canvases that led to his Grandes Decorations at the Musee de dOrangeries in Paris. His flower garden is featured in at least 40 works. The exhibition, which runs through Oct. 21, will feature a seasonally changing display of flora, currently a spring kaleidoscope of poppies, roses, floxgloves, irises and delphiniums inside the botanical gardens Enid A. Haupt Conservancy. It also includes two scarcely seen garden-inspired paintings, Monets wooden palette, rare photos of Monet in his garden and 30 photographs of Giverny by Elizabeth Murray, who has recorded Monets flower oasis for 25 years. These are all located at the botanical gardens LuEsther T. Mertz Library. A facade of Monets pink stucco house with its bright green shutters a historically accurate replica by Tony Award-winning set designer Scott Park marks the start of the exhibition. From there, visitors are led down the Grand Allee, a shorter recreation of Monets rose-covered trellis pathway lined on both sides with thick beds of vibrant flowers. The path opens up to a replica of his famous Japanese footbridge arching over a water lily pool encircled by willow trees and flowering shrubs. He could stand at his doorstep, as you can in this recreation, and look down the allee to the Japanese bridge in the distance, said the exhibition curator, Monet scholar Paul Hayes Tucker. Since we know what flowers he planted, we can be very accurate historically, Tucker said. It is only a fraction of his undertaking but, nonetheless, an enormously rich and extensive fraction that will hopefully encourage people to learn more about him and if one is lucky enough to go to Giverny. In the courtyard outside the Victorian greenhouse, two immense water basins contain a plethora of water lilies. Monet, who made a fortune during his lifetime, was constantly planting, replanting and redesigning his gardens. He would remove the water lilies in the winter so they would survive the cold and then replant them in the spring and summer. Whats wonderful is to think of Monet literally as planting a still life because it is in the end the arrangement of those water lilies that he paints in his pictures. He is constructing his painting, at least part of his painting, as he replants the pond, Tucker said, adding that the job of one of Monets gardeners was to dunk the lilies so the pads would glisten. Summer months will see yellow and orange blossoms of nasturtiums, and lavenders, lilies and geraniums will fill the conservancy. In September and October, they will be replaced with chrysanthemums, salvia, sunflowers, asters, sages, dahlias and other fall flowers. Among the rare artifacts in the exhibition are two paintings of his garden executed by the artist 15 years apart. The Artists Garden in Giverny, on loan from the Yale University Art Gallery, was painted around the year 1900 and shows his flower garden with a dense arrangement of irises and decorative trees. Irises, painted during World War I, is darker and moodier. On loan from a private Swiss collection and never before shown in the United States, it depicts a corner of the water garden that is replete with irises. In a nearby glass case is one of Monets paint-encrusted palettes, a place where literally the hand and the eye come together and where that mysterious poetic moment of realization takes place, Tucker said. Its on loan from the Musee MarmottanMonet in Paris.Giverny in NYC Birthday A raise in status is a strong likelihood for you in the year ahead.

Maidhof had the answers in Citrus It is hard not to have a very emotional response to the death of Gary Maidhof. The 54-year-old father, husband and county worker died last Sunday while vacationing in Idaho with his wife. The loss to the family must be devastating beyond belief. The loss to Citrus County can hardly be measured. Gary Maidhof worked for county government since 1990, and before that with the countys environmental health department. In my view, he was the smartest guy in county government. You might be able to find someone with more advanced college degrees or a higher IQ, but you wouldnt find anyone with a better ability to put together knowledge and common sense to find solutions to critical problems. During those three decades, he became the go-to guy for anyone who wanted to know anything about county government. In Citrus Countys growth years, Maidhof was the head of the countys development department. An avowed environmentalist, he understood his role working with developers and businesspeople and eventually won the respect of all involved. If he had a political agenda, it was to do the right thing. It should be no surprise he was a Boy Scout and a Scoutmaster. Citrus County has had too many county administrators and county commissioners to even count since Gary Maidhof joined the staff, but to each and every one he lent his experience and advice. Even when a previous county commission employed a totally unqualified person as county administrator, Maidhof came forward to lend all the assistance he could. Over the years, I have had almost every attorney, developer and county commissioner in town call me up to yell and scream that Gary Maidhof was making them follow the rules. And then over a period of time, I had almost every one of those critics tell me how terrific Gary Maidhof was and what a great job he was doing. If he had a fault, it was that he was too nice to his employees. And yes, he wore the ugliest ties in the whole county. It was like he was constantly searching for really ugly ties. If he had a secret weapon, it was that he never forgot anything. He helped write the countys original comprehensive plan and he wrote the countys Land Development Code. He was an encyclopedia of information about roads, sewer systems, water projects, development proposals, birds, coastlines, springs, controversial barns and most anything about local government. Most people would be bored to tears reading storm water runoff regulations. Gary Maidhof wrote them.

The King Springs complex is not flowing. A watery report card: Legacy F DANHILLIARD Special to the ChronicleKudos to the Citrus County ChronicleEditorial Board! The boards consistent and positive position regarding water resource management as illustrated in the May 25 editorial is a fresh breeze for the Nature Coast! The message is being echoed by a growing number of residents and organizations throughout the state, and a very simple message it is: We have a water crisis on our hands and we expect the state Legislature and regulatory agencies to find remedies before we pass the point of no return. Water is critically important to our lives in so many ways, yet we take it for granted. It is more than a facilitator of clean dishes, cars and wetted lawns. It is the fundamental foundation of our lives, our economy, our food supply and recreation. According to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, water contributed more than $600 billion to the states gross product in 2008. It generates tens of millions of dollars to the Citrus County economy annually by virtue of tourism and recreational activity. It is the goose that laid the golden egg! There are certain paradigms about water that are inescapable. Regardless of the supply of water in Florida, it is a finite resource. There are two metrics that sharply influence the benefit of this resource to the people via the many ways it supports us. One is quantity and the other is quality. Florida relies on water from regional aquifers for approximately 90 percent of its water supply. We pump more than 7 billion gallons per day from the ground and anticipate an increase of that figure to more than 9 billion gallons per day by 2025. In doing so, the level of the aquifer is reduced incrementally. Recharge is wholly dependent on rainfall. As aquifer levels fall, springs throughout the state flow with less vigor. Given circumstances such as high volumes of groundwater pumping and prolonged drought, they may cease to flow altogether. Neither circumstance is desirable. As the aquifer levels decline, lakes and rivers dry up, and this is also undesirable because the degraded resource results in diminished economic productivity. These things happen not because the gross supply of groundwater is greatly diminished, but because we are using and losing supply from the top of the water mountain that is our aquifer. This is the part of the aquifer so critically important. Inefficient use and drought can combine to create the perfect storm of conflicted interests. Concurrent with water quantity is the issue of water quality. While science examines these aspects separately, they are intrinsically linked. A trite turn of phrase has it that the solution to pollution is dilution. Lacking quantity, there is no dilution. Lacking dilution, we are left with increased concentrations of pollutants, which imply degradation of biological productivity and risks to human health. The message that follows is not pretty. It is the federal report card that evaluates how well our laws and resulting management practices work. It is the telling of how effectively the people of Florida are represented by the Florida Legislature and water management agencies. It is the tale of what we have done to ourselves. The source is the Watershed Assessment, Tracking & Environmental Results for 2010 as published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in administration of the Clean Water Act. Folks, we are at a crossroads. It is clearly demonstrated that past practices have failed the people of the state badly. We cannot continue on this course without severe consequences to our health and economic prosperity. We have the power, but not the right, to pass these problems on to the next generation. The cost of recovering degraded water quality and destroyed ecosystems is staggering. The cost of depending on reclaimed or highly treated water for beneficial supply is daunting, and in some cases may rise to 1,000 percent of groundwater costs for treatment and distribution. Our persistence in abuse of groundwater supply is fraught with hazards and promises great expense if we do not find a better way to protect the resource and more efficient ways to use it. There is no other choice. You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality. Ayn Rand (1905-1982).Dan Hilliard is director of Withacoochee Area Residents Inc.

KC NAYFIELD Special to the ChronicleWhen it comes to water quality in Kings Bay, the 500-pound gorilla in the room is spring flow, which comes directly from the aquifer. It seems like no one wants to address this issue, since it might mean changes in lifestyles as a result of strict water conservation rules. The bay is showing evidence of salt water intrusion. Salinity is up to the point that barnacles are present on most dock pilings and even those of Spring Run Bridge. The lack of spring flow decreases the amount of filtered spring water entering the bay and decreases the flushing effect, thus promoting algae growth. The current drought has contributed to the problem. Climate change, in my opinion, has resulted in a 2.4-inch rise in the bays water level during the past 30 years, as documented by the Southwest Florida Water Management District, which attributes that to a rise in the sea level. Likewise, the tremendous population growth of the county, golf course development, and commercial development have increased the pumping from the aquifer, causing less water to flow to the springs. Couple this with wetlands destruction and the creation of impervious surfaces with storm water running off instead of recharging, and one can appreciate that much of the water quality issue is manmade. So this is why I am strongly in favor of the Crystal River City Council raising water consumption rates. It should also be done responsibly. The conservation scale should be a lot steeper. That is, the rates should be low for people who use the minimal amounts but should be very high for those who are using extreme amounts. Sometimes it takes an economic incentive to create a conservation incentive. Increase them so the budget is not only balanced, but to make a surplus. These additional funds could be used to make the city of Crystal River the poster child for water conservation in the state. We have the most to gain. Our bay depends on spring flow. Our multimillion-dollar per year tourist industry depends on the bay. We can either pay a bit more for water now or lose the tourist dollars and be forced to pay more in taxes later. We also lose more money when our home values depreciate due to our sick water body. Setting an example for water conservation would perhaps involve retrofitting all city buildings with low-flush toilets and waterless urinals. City properties should be xeriscaped and rain barrels installed for watering, as a couple of ideas. Additionally some of the funding could be parlayed into grants for larger projects since the most critical areas of a springshed are those adjacent to the springs. We should remodel some parking lots to have effective drainage retention areas for recharge. Certain properties could be purchased and returned to wetlands for more recharge, as well. More funding could be applied to water reuse projects, such as the pipeline to the Progress Energy facility, to help eliminate more groundwater pumping. It is past time for us to get tough and serious about cleaning up Kings Bay. It is past time that we stop monkeying around.

The positions hes held in county government from environmental planner to senior planner to Development Services director to his final job as operations and projects manager exposed Gary to the intricacies of Citrus County. Exposure is one thing. It was his unbridled passion for the subject matter that enabled him to become a human encyclopedia when it comes to all things Citrus. As an extension of that passion, he welcomed opportunities to share his insights and to inform the curious whether as an official at the office, in meetings with civic groups or in casual conversation. As an individual, Gary debunked the connotation that comes with the term bureaucrat, finding the fun in using his database-like brain to assist others. However, his government role was but one aspect in a well-rounded life. He was a dedicated Scoutmaster, a founding and steadfast member of Citrus 2020 and, in that capacity, a key organizer of Save Our Waters Week. Prior to starting with county government in 1990, Gary received his degree from the University of Florida in zoology, worked as a biological technician for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, then spent nearly a decade with the Florida Department of Environmental Health in Citrus County. In 1985, while still employed by the state, he was among those who crafted the first county comprehensive plan. While his profile in county government was significant, there were subtleties unique to his character. He worked behind the scenes to foster communication and understanding in delicate situations; he was generous. yet sought no recognition; and he had a collection of really peculiar neckties that left those unfamiliar with his humor scratching their heads. Gary Maidhof, 54, leaves his wife, Charlotte, two sons and an untold number of friends. The funeral service will be private, but arrangements are being made for a public memorial service, possibly next weekend. Details will be published. Gary Maidhof died Sunday, May 20, after a nature hike in Idaho. He takes with him an incomprehensible amount of institutional knowledge about Citrus County. Yet he leaves a Citrus County thats a better place, thanks to his time here. THE ISSUE:Death of Gary Maidhof.OUR OPINION:He was one of a kind. Good decisionThank you, Dennis Damato. I appreciate that you faced reality and voted against funding the SBDC because I think youre right. They should have been trying to keep the local businesses going but whats happened is people are out of touch with reality and theres so many people out there that are still out of work. This is not the time to start a new business. This is a time to try to hang on to business and you have been a voice of reason.Treatment of speakersIn reference to the rejection of the county to continue partially funding the Small Business Development Center (SBDC): Now the county commissioners have every right to vote their conscience. That was what they were elected to do. I have no problem with that. My question is, in giving their opinion as to how they voted, some commissioners seem to admonish some presenters. Sadly, this is not the first Ive heard this. I do not know Joe Meek. I have never met Joe Meek. I said it once and Ill say it again: Folks, we have a winner.Thanks for votesThank you, Rebecca Bays and Commissioner Winn Webb, for voting against the SBDC because I think we need to consolidate things and do something thats really evidencebased, like (Dennis) Damato said. A lot of these programs that were reading about in the paper, with people going off on junkets, (are) just irritating the taxpayers the ones of us that are still working. I have so many family members that have been out of work now for several years and some of them have just given up. I mean they say theyre still looking, but theyre just giving up and they cant afford to move away and they would if they could.Right on targetMy wife and I watched the BOCC meeting on TV when SBDC asked for $32,000, (for) which they were rejected. We were very impressed with Commissioner (Dennis) Damatos in-depth understanding of the problems the small businesses are having staying afloat. We totally agree with him and Commissioner Bays, that numbers are numbers, just that. Show us the results. THE CHRONICLEinvites you to call Sound Off with your opinions about any subject.

The interpretation of its function may have been obfuscated by the closures of Sears, Tugs and the Serenity Day Spa; however, out-of-state corporate decisions, the economy and solid competition were beyond anything the SBDC could have done to prevent their closings. I work for a local community bank whereby our mission is to help Citrus County domiciled companies succeed with their businesses by providing capital (loans) and depository products if they are credit qualified. Our bank has referred to and has been referred by the SBDC on three different occasions. The SBDC acted as a consultant and provided financial advice for these companies. One company we were able to help immediately by providing a line of credit that enabled them to take on more business and hire two more technicians. All the analytics regarding these companies were overseen and evaluated by the Certified Business Analyst who works for the SBDC and his input was invaluable to us regarding our decision-making. The service provided by the SBDC for the clients and our bank was beneficial to all involved and an example of how the SBDC provides a necessary service, which may not always be reported to the county.Paul V.

Peter Pan the musical, 1954 WAUWATOSA, Wis. This state, the first to let government employees unionize, was an incubator of progressivism and gave birth (in 1932 in Madison, the precursor of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees) to its emblematic institution, the government employees union government organized as a special interest to lobby itself to expand itself. But Wisconsin progressivism is in a dark Peter Pan phase; it is childish without being winsome. Wisconsin has produced populists of the left (Robert La Follette) and right (Joe McCarthy). On Tuesday, in this years second-most important election, voters will judge the attempt by a populism of the privilegedwhite-collar labor unions whose members live comfortably above the American medianto recall Republican Gov. Scott Walker. In this Milwaukee suburb, a proWalker phone bank is conducting mobilization, not persuasion. Isanyvoter undecided? For 16 months, Wisconsin, normally a paragon of Midwestern neighborliness, has been riven by furious attempts to punish Walker for keeping his campaign promise to change the states unsustainable fiscal trajectory driven by the perquisites of government employees. His progressive adversaries have, however, retreated from their original pretext for attempting to overturn the election Walker won handily just 19 months ago. He defeated Mayor Tom Barrett of Milwaukee. A recall is a gubernatorial election, and the Democrats May primary was won by ... Barrett. In 2010, government employees unions campaigned against Walkers and 12 plan. It requires government employees to contribute 5.8 percent of their pay to their pension plans. (Most were paying less than 1 percent. Most private-sector workers have no pensions; those who do pay, on average, much more than 5.8 percent.) Walkers reform requires government employees to pay 12.6 percent of their health care premiums (up from 6 percent but still less than the 21 percent private-sector average). Defeated in 2010, the unions now are demanding, as frustrated children do after losing a game, Lets start over! Like children throwing a tantrum against the rules of a game going badly, in 2011 petulant Wisconsin Democratic legislators fled to Illinois to disrupt the Legislature. Walkers reforms included restricting the issues subject to collective bargaining. This emancipated school districts from buying teachers health insurance from a provider entity associated with the teachers union. Barrett used Walkers reform to save Milwaukee $19 million. In justifying a raucous resistance to, and then this recall of, Walker, the government employees unions stressed his restriction of collective bargaining rights. But in the May primary, these unions backed the candidate trounced by Barrett, who is largely ignoring the collective bargaining issue, perhaps partly because most worker protections are embedded in Wisconsins uniquely strong civil service law. Besides, what really motivates the unions and elected Democrats is that Walker ended the automatic deduction of union dues from government employees pay. The experience in Colorado, Indiana, Utah and Washington state is that when dues become voluntary, they become elusive. So, Barrett is essentially running another general election campaign, not unlike that of 2010 except that the $3.6 billion deficit Walker inherited has disappeared and property taxes have declined. By re-posing the 2010 choice, Wisconsin progressives one-word platform becomes: Mulligan! The emblem displayed at some anti-Walker centers is an outline of Wisconsin rendered as a clenched fist, with a red star on the heel of the hand. Walkers disproportionately middle-aged adversaries know the red star symbolized murderous totalitarianism, yet they flaunt it as a progressive ornament. Why? Because it satisfies the sandbox socialists childish pleasure in naughtiness, as does their playground name-calling (Walker is a Midwest Mussolini) and infantile point-scoring: When the Milwaukee Journal Sentinelendorsed Walker, Wisconsins Democratic Party chair fulminated that six decades ago the Sentinel(which merged with the Journalin 1995) supported McCarthy. Also, many backward-looking baby boomers want to recapture their youthful fun of waving clenched fists in the face of privilege. Now, embarrassingly, they areprivileged. A January poll found even 17 percent of Democrats think recalls are justified only by criminal behavior, not policy differences. If, however, Walker loses, regular Wisconsin elections will henceforth confer only evanescent legitimacy. If he wins, progressives will have inadvertently demonstrated that entrenched privilege can be challenged, and they will have squandered huge sums that cannot finance progressive causes elsewhere. So, for a change, progressives will have served progress. George Wills email address is georgewill@washpost.com.

Response to Water threat exaggerated column by Dr. William Dixon from May 27, 2012. It is very good that some of our local citizens submitted responses to the recent opinion article, Floridas water resources / The good, the bad and the ugly in the May 20, 2012, edition of the Chronicle. There really needs to be extensive public discussion and review of this topic regarding our water resources. It is absolutely correct, as stated in the Water threat exaggerated column of May 27 that there should be great concern about the 20-fold presence of nitrate levels (less than 1.0 mg/l)) in Silver Springs versus background levels (.05 mg/l). The fact is, nitrates have increased dramatically in many springs in Florida, not just Silver Springs, and they are a major threat to spring and groundwater quality. With the negative changes occurring over the past two years in our state leaders environmental awareness, we need a few alarmists too bad there wasnt an alarmist around a couple of years ago when very poor decisions were made in the Gulf of Mexico on an oil platform; it is a shame that some job-killing regulator didnt see this coming and prevent it. We all know the details of this environmental disaster and the negative impact on jobs, tourism, and state revenues in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Talk about stifling economic growth! At last count BP Oil has ponied up $20 billion to cover definable impacts to our economy and environment. An alarmist would have been good in the 1960s and 1970s when the Tampa Bay area pumped so much groundwater from the Floridan Aquifer that lakes, wetlands, and streams experienced dramatic declines. Saltwater intrusion became a legitimate and scientifically observed concern. Too much groundwater pumping migrated outside of the Tampa Bay area to surrounding, more rural counties. It took a Florida judge in the 1990s to stop the overpumping and require the region to embrace major conservation programs along with alternative water sources such as desalination and large surface water reservoirs. The cost to overcome these excessive groundwater pumping issues was over a billion dollars paid for by Florida citizens and federal grants. One would assume a medical doctor would have serious concerns about a human patient who developed a high white blood cell count, a very low heart rate, and high blood pressure over, lets say, a 10-year period. But in recent months, while the patient was under a lot of stress, the heart rate went to its lowest rate in the patients 80year life span. Sounds a lot like Silver Springs flow rate at lowest level in its 80year record. Yes, there is the stress of a drought, but the spring experienced droughts in the past without such a significant impact to its flow. High nitrates, loss of game fish, deteriorating water quality this patient, Silver Springs, is sick and we, the public, should be very concerned. Its not just Silver Springs where these symptoms are now occurring ask residents along the spring-fed Crystal, Homosassa, Santa Fe and Chassahowitzka rivers if they have seen any changes in recent decades in their rivers flow pattern and/or water quality. So, should the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) now allow a cattle and slaughter house operation to pump more large water quantities (as much as the city of Ocala currently uses on an average day and twice that on a maximum day!) from the Silver Springs springshed? Should there now be introduced even more nitrogen loading to the local terrain, well known for direct geologic connections to the Floridan Aquifer (30,000 head of cattle can generate nitrogen-laden wastes equivalent to a mid-sized city)? Not wise! While it is true this permit request does not reach the level of the incredibly damaging Gulf of Mexico oil spill of 2010, it does represent the proverbial tip of the iceberg. Issuance of this permit, as it has been presented, opens the door for others in already stressed areas to apply for use of similar quantities of water so that we dont stifle economic growth and trample private property rights. The Floridan Aquifer, the hydrologic cycle and Floridas water laws, are not as simplistic as outlined in the Water threat exaggerated column. The writer fails to take into account the ground-water uses already occurring in our state to the tune of some 4 billion gallons a day. The Floridan Aquifer is not a huge, homogeneous vessel of water. In this part of Florida, springsheds distinct within the aquifer feed the particular spring. Silver Springs receives its water recharge from an area of approximately 1,200 square miles not 100,000 square miles. Rainbow, Wekiva, Homosassa, Chassahowitzka, Kings, Manatee, Alexander, Juniper, et al (more than 900 springs, in Florida), and most receive their recharge, and therefore generate their discharge levels, from their specific springshed. Actually, the statement most of the water will be returned directly to the aquifer after it has been used for irrigation is absolutely wrong. Most water from rain and/or irrigation is lost to evapotranspiration (average evapotranspiration of 39 inches if the total average annual rainfall is 52 inches). More of this water goes to runoff, leaving a small percentage that actually re-enters the aquifer. And the statement that contaminants generated by fertilizers, livestock and humans will be filtered by the soil does not ring true, considering Floridas typically sandy soils and common occurrence of direct connections to the aquifer through sinkholes. No one will rationally declare that everything in natural Florida should somehow be reversed to its undisturbed, pre-Columbian character and that we should deny industry, public supply and agriculture their reasonable and beneficial use of water as currently provided in the Florida statutes. The right answer here is to utilize the water responsibly. By the way, this approach usually creates more jobs, and invests more for our long-term future how about for our kids and grandchildren? Two alternatives for how Florida could manage its water resources have been clearly exposed here: One view is that private property rights and jobs generated should be the deciding factors on how much water one could extract from our limited resources. Or, we can responsibly provide water to users based on their reasonable and beneficial needs, whether the use is in the public interest and whether the new use will interfere with existing legal users this as currently outlined in the Florida Statutes, Chapter 373. Voters will have this choice in elections conducted in this state: to choose between leaders who stand by responsible use of our limited resources; or, leaders whose priority is to create jobs with little regard for the future of our states resources and longterm health. This is where we are, folks. Consider attending an upcoming event June 23 at the Silver River State Park near Ocala. Silver Springs and its future health will be discussed there by our former Florida governor and U.S. senator, Bob Graham, and several other experts on this topic.

COMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, JUNE3, 2012 C3 Partial to popcorn; affinity for aint Many years ago, soon after I began making an attempt at writing a weekly column, I was chastised in one of hers by the Chroniclesqueen mother of columnists at that time, the incomparable Esther Duncan. It seems Id hit a nerve with Esther by being critical of popcorn. No matter that the stuff turns a little bit of corn doused in much butter and salt into a heart attack waiting to happen, or that it sticks between your teeth causing all sorts of misery, Esther liked popcorn and she didnt like me criticizing it. Was I upset? Not at all. I was thrilled that she read my work, and the incident helped to seal a lasting, highly valued friendship. While she is much younger than Esther was then and I am now, I consider Nancy Kennedy to be todays grande dame of writers at the Chronicle; even so, most recently I found myself cringing at one of the conclusions drawn in a piece she had written after interviewing various local schoolteachers. I agreed with almost everything in the article, things such as being careful when using the words I and me and saying I could care less, when the obvious intent is to say I couldnt care less, but for her to speak of aint with disdain troubled me. Even though what was said was certainly in line with conventional wisdom that is, thataint ainta word except in colloquial usage and should never be used in business or formal writing its denigration was still bothersome. The use of correct grammar is of extreme importance to me. Even though more often than Id like, a mistake will slip through, I extend a considerable amount of effort to keep such errors out of my work. I mentally diagram sentences; and, very often, Ill rewrite an entire statement to avoid a usage I know is technically correct, but which sounds awkward. Furthermore, Cheryl reviews and edits every manuscript before I submit it to the Chroniclesstaff for a final, formal edit. In this modern era, I make use of the computerized help such as spell-check. Nonetheless, I also keep two printed volumes on my desk the Bible and Mr. Websters dictionary. No, as far as I know, aint isnt used in the Bible, but it is in the dictionary. To my chagrin, Mr. Websters folks use approximately 30 words to define what I believe to be the most foul word in the English language, an unequally vulgar four-letter word I would never use in any form, but its still considered a full-fledged member of the family of recognized words. On the other hand, they use approximately 170 words to define and discuss aint, which is a harmless, quite useful grouping of letters whose main offense seems to be that it is popular in the southern portion of these United States, yet in the end, it isnt given word status. Enough kidding and philosophizing. Nancys recent offering in Stuff You Should Know was well done. She and the teachers did an excellent job of helping people better understand the value of using correct grammar. I dont want to shoot the messengers they did nothing more or less than pass along the presently accepted rules. But, as it pertains to aint, the message itself still steams me. Esther was partial to popcorn. And, as a fully documented, fifth-generation Florida cracker, I have an affinity for aint.Fred Brannen is an Inverness resident and a Chronicle columnist. Fred BrannenA SLICE OF LIFE Gary KuhlGUEST COLUMN Dangerous wave of the future ALGRUBMAN Special to the ChronicleWe have fought the water wars. We have had victories large and small. We have ridden buses and made model pipes. We have challenged government loudly and reasonably. We have had elected representatives who were allies and some who were enemies. We have learned a lot but the water gobblers and water miners are using new weapons and tactics. Now they are not just trying to get our water. A Canadian billionaire car parts magnate and Marion County horseman apparently thinks he needs more money. A billionaire has more than a thousand millions; I guess that ought to be enough to keep most folks comfy. He has gathered 30,000 acres on which to raise, slaughter and butcher cattle. I understand he will keep about 30,000 head on the Adena Springs Ranch. But, he does not want much from us as long as you dont live close enough to smell the droppings or the slaughter house. He even has a plan for the nitrogen that washes into the aquifer he is going to suck out so much water from the aquifer that he may bring back the droppings/nitrogen so they will not contaminate the groundwater. He has requested a permit to take an average of 13.3 million gallons per day and much more when it is dry like now. He wants to take the water from the springshed of the Silver Springs and Silver River; as much water as the whole city of Ocala combined uses in a day. You may already know that Silver Springs flow has deteriorated to an 80-year low; it is already threatened. Tourism and recreation generate an estimated $60 million per year. These days when a representative of a project claims that it will generate many jobs it brings political attention. Some claims have gone as high as 100 jobs, although many doubt that the numbers are anywhere near that high. My local newspaper, theCitrus County Chronicle, asked, Does employing a handful of cattle ranchers offset the environmental impact this decision would have on Silver Springs? Think a minute; even if the number of potential jobs was 100, would it be worth losing the $60 million? This is only one spring system. Like (heck) it is! It sets a precedent. It will put another name on the list of dead environmental gems. If we do not fight this one, it will be a continuation of the old salami game. If you will not fight for this piece of salami or that piece, soon there will be nothing left but the string and then it is too late. What can we do? Here are three things.

Letters to theEDITOR Romney rebuttal(Re: Romney represents opportunity, Dr. William Dixon, Page C3, May 6.) Dr. Dixon has his work cut out for him trying to convince voters Mitt Romney will stick to any campaign promises or that he even believes in them. It must be difficult for an ultra-conservative, tea party speaker such as Dr. Dixon to try to put a positive spin on Romneys credentials as a conservative. Romney goes whichever way the wind blows. The question is, what kind of decisions will he make if he is elected president? Romney was born into wealth, similar to the Kennedy family, and, like them, showed he had compassion for people when he signed the Romney health bill. Being wealthy certainly doesnt make people bad people. Unfortunately, the compassion he showed for those who were without health care in his state does not fit the ideology of those he needs to support him in his quest to become president. He, therefore, follows their dictates and criticizes the Obama health plan that is virtually the same as the one he approved as governor of Massachusetts. The only complimentary distinctions Dr. Dixon had for Romney was that he has a wonderful family, has not been involved in any embarrassing situations and has world economic experience. His business qualifications are questionable, however, since his company apparently shut down companies for profit. Unfortunately, much more is required to become an effective president. He is completely lacking in the area of foreign affairs. Romney has criticized President Obama on every foreign issue even when he didnt have the facts. His immediate response regarding the Iran nuclear issue was to consider bombing them. Which president does this remind you of? He is also lacking in character. At a primary function he made no comment when the crowd booed a young gay soldier. At another function he did not respond to a woman who stated President Obama should be tried for treason. Recently, he gave no support to one of his own advisers replaced because he was gay. If he doesnt have the guts to confront unfortunate incidents such as these, how can he be trusted to handle other serious issues?Larry Sparks HomosassaSBDC funding a wasteI was pleased to see Commissioners Damato, Webb and Bays reject the continued funding for the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). I have always been an advocate of controlled growth and small business development. Being a small business owner, I realize the importance small businesses play in our national economy, and how many lives depend on their existence. However, my experience with the SBDC was not pleasant. I was early for an appointment in Homosassa a few months ago and decided to stop by the SBDC office to see what it was all about. I met the on-site SBDC representative and told him I was a businessman from Atlanta. I told him I was considering opening a call center for my business in either Citrus or Hernando county. If successful, I would look for a larger location, and employ 10 to 12 people. The man could not give me any specifics on the location other than the rent would be $200 a month and include some services. He said no one had made inquiries about the office in a few months and he was not sure of the details. He took me into his office and showed me the county website, telling me I should contact the county. I asked him if Citrus County was business friendly. I was astounded when he replied that it is getting better, but there are counties more business friendly than Citrus. He went on to say, Citrus County may not be what you are looking for to open a business. At this point, he said he was late for a meeting and walked me to the door. He did not ask for contact information. I spoke with two commissioners about this experience with the SBDC. Both were very concerned about the image the SBDC office was portraying, and the unprofessional manner in which I was treated. However, one of the commissioners I spoke with voted to continue funding for this project. Again, thanks to Commissioners Damato, Webb and Bays for eliminating this expense and waste of money.Bernie Leven Citrus Springs ON THE NET Letters to the editor are archived at www.chronicleonline.com after being published in the Chronicle.

Keep goingId like to have an answer to whats going on on Turner Camp Road and why the resurfacing of the road went on about two miles and stopped. The whole road needs resurfacing. Is there some kind of development going on where they sold that big bunch of property? If that was the reason, I think thats just plain wrong. That whole road needs resurfacing.Tips yes, tip jars noIm calling in reference to the tip situation that was discussed a few days back. This business about leaving a tip for a waitress or a waiter at the table is wonderful, I think. Im all for it. But this business of walking up to a register and somebody reaching over and handing you a box, taking your money and having a tip jar right at the register, I dont think that we owe anybody anything for just handing us a box and taking our money. What do you think?Dawsys done goodRegarding the article in the Citrus County Chronicle on Wednesday, May 23, about the bashing of Sheriff Dawsy. You people need to get your facts straight. This is the best thing thats ever happened to this county. This man is the most honest and reliable person the sheriffs office could want. Think of all the positive things hes doing for this county, not only just with the sheriffs department but with now bringing Citrus Fire Rescue under his belt. You people need to ride along and observe what goes on with the sheriffs department 24/7, like I have, and 24/7, like I have, with the fire rescue and youll have a better understanding of the picture. So get your facts straight.Sidewalks neededWe dont need U.S. 19 widened from Crystal River south past Homosassa. We need sidewalks. Theres too many children waiting for school buses and too many bicyclists out having to ride on the street. We dont need six lanes of traffic. We need sidewalks.Pet identificationI cannot understand why people buy expensive dogs, raise them, but do not put adequate identification on them. I had a dog yesterday that wandered into my neighborhood. I had it in my house eight hours. I could not find anything on it that told me where she came from and I had to call the sheriffs (office). She was a beautiful dog, very intelligent, trained, but why couldnt her owners buy a collar and put her name and phone number in indelible ink on it? Its such a shame to put a dog through this. It wandered away from home and I dont think it will ever find its owners, and the owners dont seem interested in finding it.Wal-Mart worksIm very glad to see that they built another Wal-Mart in Homosassa and another large one is being built as we speak in Lecanto. This gives people a lot of chances to go back to work. I feel very sorry for these people looking for work. Im glad to see that Wal-Mart is building stores all over. Thank you, Wal-Mart.Medicaid criteriaCould anybody out there thats on Medicaid tell me what your monthly income or your yearly income is to be to qualify for Medicaid? Im 75 years old and I was just wondering about insurance and so forth. Price breakThank you, Mr. Obama, for finally lowering the gas prices a little bit.No controlPeople, the president does not control the price of gasoline. You got it?LudicrousTo the person who wrote in to Sound Off thinking we should praise Obama for bringing the price of gasoline down when we reprimanded him for the price going up: If this person thinks that Obama himself lowered the price of the gasoline all by himself with one stroke of a pen, Ive got a bridge in Brooklyn Ill sell this person real cheap. If they want to call the paper and get my number, Ill be glad to sell it to them because that is the most ludicrous thing Ive ever heard in my life. He spoke to most every civic, community and fraternal organization in the county. He could speak to a crowded conference room of 200 people or to a group of four at the back end of a pickup truck. He loved the detail. He could recall most anything. He educated a generation of county administrators and county commissioners. He would volunteer for any job that came along. And he loved Citrus County. He came to work every day believing that he was playing a role in making our community a better place to live.

We are grateful and most thankful for the assurance of the transcendental experience that from the other side of Light where Life finds you and this other side where we are you will continue in the race. Together we will learn the Master craft of VICTORY. Until we meet again in the ever present Presence of our Creator. God speed in your new Lifes journey. The Father, you and all of us who love you are one! FOREVER! Dear Lord, thank You for the faith that frees, and the love that knows it cannot lose its own. Sal and Nora Cina 000BMX9

As children, weve all heard our parents or another adult say, I told you so. This comment usually came as the result of something we did that did not turn out well, or failed. Even though an adult may have offered advice to do something a certain way, we chose to do it our way and it backfired. So much for not listening to experience. Been there, done that is a derivative of I told you so. SCORE, with its commitment to helping small businesses start or grow, offers the voice of experience. Experience is our single most important asset. Experience matters. SCORE: the strength of many When small business people come to SCORE, they tap into our most valuable asset: experience. Our Certified Business Mentors have spent years in business. Individually and collectively, they are prepared to offer seasoned and proven advice. Even if a client has some business experience, its highly improbable one person can know all there is to know. SCORE has the capacity to bring in several counselors to improve a clients mentoring process. Its called cocounseling. When a clients business needs so indicate, SCORE mentors are expected to enlist the advice of other certified mentors to help the client. Our mentors are conversant with business disciplines, such as: accounting, human resource management, marketing, management, sales and distribution services. And, best of all, our expertise doesnt end there. Great results come from a comprehensive approach to counseling. As our economy improves Now is an excellent time to take advantage of the SCORE mentoring program. With the economy beginning to grow again, albeit slowly, now is the time to expand that existing business. Most of the Certified Business Mentors have been there, done that. Our mentoring services will only cost your time and attention to what we know and, of course, your willingness to make it work. It will work, if you work it. What we cant do for you Oftentimes, our clients view us as consultants. We are not consultants. Consultants get paid for their expertise, SCORE mentors volunteer at no compensation. Consultants sometimes become employees, shareholders or investors in the business they help. SCORE mentors are not allowed, under a very strong code of ethics, to derive financial benefit, directly or indirectly, from our services. Each year, SCORE mentors sign a lengthy document that spells out, in detail, our obligations with respect to conflict of interest. We agree to avoid any situation that may not be in the best interests of our client. What we will do for you SCORE mentors help clients make good business decisions based on our understanding of what we know works. This philosophy of client-centered counseling encourages the clients to do research and planning with our support. What SCORE attempts to accomplish with this counseling method is to provide each client with an awareness that they have the power to be successful. This is our gift to them. SCORE is available at no charge for those who seek help with their business. Our office hours are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday to Thursday. Call 352-249-1236. If you call during non-business hours, leave enough information so we can call you back.Dr. Frederick J. Herzog is chairman of Citrus County SCORE. Email fherzog@tampabay.rr.com. Sell home, then rent? DEAR BRUCE: My husband and I will sell our home soon and have decided not to purchase another home but to rent. My husband is 72 years old, and I am 69. Our profit will be below $200,000, and we wonder if we will have to pay a penalty for not reinvesting in another home. We are going to invest any profit we make. C.B., via email DEAR C.B.: Not to worry. The entire $200,000 profit on your primary home is free from any federal tax. You say youre going to invest any profit you make lots of luck with that. The troublesome part, as I have repeated so many times, is that right now $200,000 is not going to earn much interest in a savings account. I think you would be better off investing it in the stock market and in some solid bonds that can be added to your existing portfolio. For folks of your age, renting rather than buying bears consideration for a variety of reasons I have expounded upon many times. Move slowly with your $200,000 and get used to the idea that, unless you are prepared to take a degree of risk, your return will be next to nonexistent. DEAR BRUCE: My mother has recently entered a nursing home. I was under the impression she would be taken care of by our government, as I thought the money she has in an account was protected. The account has my name on it, as well. I have been informed by the nursing home that this money she has saved will have to be used for her care. Is there any way we can save any of that money for her heirs? T.B., via email DEAR T.B.: I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Im afraid the answer is no. If the money had been given to you and any siblings prior to the look-back period before your mom required the care, some of the money could have been preserved. However, if transfers are made within the lookback period, it is believed people are impoverishing themselves deliberately so government programs will kick in. It is a sorry situation when a lifetime of savings, accumulated because of prudent living, can be devastated in a short time. But until the system is revised, thats the way it works.Send questions to bruce @brucewilliams.com or to Smart Money, P.O. Box 7150, Hudson, FL 34674.

Bruce WilliamsSMART MONEY BUSINESSSection DSUNDAY, JUNE 3, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Dr. Frederick HerzogASK SCORE SCORE: Experience matters in business Help wanted? US employers waiting, watching before hiringJONATHANFAHEY AP Business Writers NEW YORKBusiness has picked up. Yet American companies are too nervous to step up hiring. The economy seems so gripped by uncertainties that many employers have decided to manage with the staff they have. They arent convinced their customer demand will keep growing. Or they worry Europes festering debt crisis could infect the global economy. Or they arent sure what Congress will do, if anything, about taxes and spending in coming months. All that helps explain why U.S. employers added just 69,000 jobs in May, the fewest in a year and the third straight month of weak job growth. If youre anxious, you sit on your hands, said Chad Moutray, chief economist at the National Association of Manufacturers. The U.S. government is also nearing its debt ceiling. It was just last summer that a bickering Congress rattled markets by nearly allowing the government to default on its debt. State and local spending levels are uncertain or shrinking as governments try to shrink their own debts. The result is smaller budgets for schools, transportation projects and services. Companies also complain that changes in environmental regulations and business subsidies are too hard to predict and plan for. Heres a look at why some individual employers remain hesitant to hire: For many companies that build highways, hiring plans are on hold while Congress debates long-term plans to pay for construction projects. Ive got paving crews that are ready, willing to go to work next week, but I dont have contracts that I can have them go to work on, said Ed Dalyrimple, vice president of Chemung Contracting Corp., based in Elmira, NY. The company, which operates gravel quarries and asphalt plants and does highway and airport runway paving, relies heavily on government work in New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Theres work that needs to be done, but none of the states have authorized it, Dalyrimple said. If you look at the transportation bill in Congress, it just sits there. Jason Speer is nervously watching Congress and possible tax changes as Bush-era income tax cuts near expiration at years end. Hes a vice president of Quality Float Works of Schaumberg, Ill., which makes devices to monitor fluid levels in tanks. Speer said hed feel a lot better about hiring later this year if it werent for the uncertainty about federal taxes. Unable to anticipate his companys costs, Speer said he cant make decisions about growth and hiring. We dont know if theres something around the corner thats going to hurt our business, Speer said. Sales in the United States, the Middle East and South Asia have been strong, he said. And the company expects to grow 15 percent this year. But Europe has been a drag: Sales to the region are down 50 percent to 60 percent this year. The company added two jobs this year, but would have added a third if European sales hadnt suffered. If that business was still what it was, we would have already hired someone to keep up with it, Speer said. NRG Systems, a Hinesburg, Vt., maker of sensors to measure wind speeds for the energy industry, announced in mid-May the first layoffs in its 30-year history. The U.S. wind industry is in the doldrums. Thats because a key renewable-energy subsidy is set to expire later this year, electricity demand is weak and electricity prices are low because of lower natural gas prices. This is the worst its ever been, said Abby White, a company manager. The U.S. market has pretty much dried up. White said the main problem is the future is too cloudy. Without knowing what federal policy will be in place, companies cant plan. The lowest-risk thing to do is to stop altogether, White said. An April survey of 122 technology executives by KPMG found employers werent expecting to expand their payrolls as aggressively this year as they did last year. The main reason: Most of them are bracing for slower revenue growth. The fallout from Europes shaky economy looms as the biggest concern. But slowing economies in Asia are also contributing to a more cautious approach to hiring, said Gary Matuszak of KPMG. Theres not much confidence in the U.S. economy, either. Thirty percent of the survey respondents predicted the economy wont fully regain its health until 2014. Thirty-three percent expect it will be 2015 or later before the economy returns to where it was before the financial meltdown of 2008. Alan Gaynors New York architectural design firm has put off hiring because his real estate clients are uneasy about starting projects in an uncertain global economy. Its a wait-and-see attitude they have, Gaynor said. Everyones a little nervous. The economys growing a lot slower than anyone would have liked. Gaynors firm employs 15, the same as a year ago. He cites gridlock in Congress and the slowing economies in China and India as reasons for his clients insecurity. One client has been on the verge of starting a $30 million project in Manhattan. They have been ready to pull the trigger for six months or longer but theyre not doing, Gaynor said. Gasoline demand in the U.S. has fallen for 62 straight weeks, according to MasterCard Spending Pulse, as drivers commute and travel less. Demand for diesel, used by trucks to ship goods, has also been weak. Until the economy strengthens, there wont be a need for our products, said Bill Day, a spokesman for Valero Energy, a refiner based in San Antonio. Valero isnt cutting jobs. It needs the same number of people to run a refinery, whether its operating at full strength or not. But Day said tighter environmental regulations and permit requirements, along with weak demand, are hindering the companys ability to grow. The sluggish economy has been a factor in Alice Lermans decision not to expand her Chicagoarea pet supplies store, Barker and Meowsky. She hires only when one of her seven full-time and five part-time staffers leave. We really dont know exactly whats going to happen with the economy, Lerman said. Rather than expand her company, she said shes been tilting its focus toward services big-box stores dont provide. She hasnt raised her prices and has even lowered some of them. We cant affect whats going on in the outside, but we can affect whats going on internally, Lerman said. Caring Senior Service is hiring, but not as much as it had expected to, said CEO Jeff Salter. One factor has been high unemployment itself: People who are out of work are taking over caregiving for elderly and sick relatives the company would normally handle. Thats reduced demand for services the company provides at 42 locations in 12 states. Associated PressJob seekers gather Thursday for employment opportunities at the 11th annual Skid Row Career Fair at the Los Angeles Mission in Los Angeles. U.S. employers created 69,000 jobs in May, the fewest in a year, and the unemployment rate ticked up. The dismal jobs figures could fan fears the economy is sputtering.

For almost 30 years, the organization has operated out of Yankeetown, where it was founded. In 2000 a sister agency, Childs Play Foundation, began partnering with the Isaiah Foundation in a shared office called Isaiahs Place, first in Inglis and, since 2006, on Harmony Lane across from Yankeetown Hall. Barbara Washburn, executive director of the Isaiah Foundation, said moving into the Citrus Family Center at 719 S. Otis Ave. in Lecanto will centralize the agency by bringing it closer to care providers and families who receive services in their homes. The Isaiah Foundation is one of the programs supported by United Way of Citrus County. Isaiahs Place was originally renovated and leased by the Isaiah Foundation to provide office space for its operation and to provide a safe and protected environment for Childs Play Foundation Inc. to counsel children and their families. The building was named Isaiahs Place for the Bible verse in Isaiah 58:6-10 promising that light will break forth like the dawn, said Penny Phares, clinical director of Childs Play Foundation. Childs Play has now taken over the lease at Isaiahs Place and will remain at 6210 Harmony Lane in Yankeetown. Isaiah Foundation provides respite care for families with children who are developmentally delayed and pivotal response therapy for autistic children and their families.

ambitions. For instance, if I want to grow broccoli in the spring, I know its going to take a significant part of my garden. However, I also know that while the full-grown plant may require 2 square feet, its going to take a couple of months before it gets to that size. If I were to plant just those seedlings on their own, there would be a lot of wasted ground left barren around them. By pairing a primary planting like broccoli, kale, brussels sprouts or some other spring-planted, longer-season crop with a secondary springplanted short-season crop like mesclun, baby lettuce greens, radishes or green onions we can maximize the gardening space while helping to keep the grounds moisture level even during the wetter early months and the soil cool as the season progresses. Another benefit is reaped as the longer-season leafy plants grow larger in the early summer sun. While lettuce will bolt as it experiences too much warmth from the longer days, another couple of plantings of tender greens can often be harvested from beneath the shady canopy of the maturing primary plants. Another way of providing partial shade for plants that dont need a full day of sun can be accomplished with taller plants like corn, sunflowers or even vertically grown tomatoes placed throughout the garden in north-south rows. By sowing the taller plants in this orientation, plants on either side of them are offered roughly a half-day of shade. I wish I could say I knew everything there is to know about companion planting, but honestly, I dont see how anyone ever could. Each year brings a new understanding and an opportunity to try a new way of combining different elements of the garden to benefit the plants, attract beneficial insects, create better growing conditions, or even simply maximize the area with which we have to work. More than anything else, companion planting isnt so much a recipe book for which plants to grow together. Companion planting is an ecosystem approach to gardening: Taking note of how the different pieces of the garden puzzle fit together, and then doing what we can to foster the best relationships among those pieces adds another dynamite dimension to growing your own food.

My mom was an avid collector of Norman Rockwell, mostly plates that were for the most part very commercialized via Bradford Exchange. But we stumbled across a charcoal print of what we believe to be looking out to sea. It differs from the prints we find online, as the image is reversed and not 100 percent identical to the original. We have only found one reference to this version online, and are curious about its value, both retail and for insurance. It is on a coarse paper such as the type you would use for charcoal drawing not smooth. It is in pretty good condition; the paper is starting to warp a little due to age and Florida humidity, so I know we need to get it rematted. Anything else you can tell us about it? I have attached a picture of the print and a picture of the more common plate. E., InternetDear E.: I suspect most of our readers are aware of the artist Norman Rockwell. If you have an original charcoal drawing by Rockwell, the dollar value will be significant. I think you have a print, not an original charcoal drawing. To investigate further, I suggest you contact Swann Galleries at www.swanngalleries.com in New York. They specialize in works on paper. Dear John: I am sending you a picture of a glass from a set of 12 that I believe my in-laws got as a wedding gift back in July of 1917. It is a very thin, delicate, pink glass. It also came with dessert glasses, which were short and wide, but only five of those survived. Can you tell me anything about these glasses? Any information will be greatly welcomed. E.M., InternetDear E.M.: I think your pretty pink glassware was made in America. I do not recognize the maker or the pattern. Here is a good Internet resource for American glassware: The company name is Sparkle Plenty Glass. The website is www.spglass.com. Dear John: I enjoy your show every Saturday morning. On March 17, one of your listeners inquired about cleaning silver. I have had very good results from a 3M product, Tarni Shield. It was recommended by a dealer in silver collectibles in Los Angeles. Tarni-Shield gives a very bright luster without scratching. Part of the polishing instructions includes the note to rinse in water and then let stand 2 to 5 minutes. The dealer said to use very hot water when rinsing so that a thin invisible, wax-like layer remains on the silver, thereby prolonging the shine. He said that periodic dusting would further prolong the shine, and cautioned June marks the beginning of summer, the rainy season and hurricane season. This month also offers some of the greatest opportunities for viewing wildlife. There is a wide variety of interesting critter activities to observe throughout June.BirdsJune is the breeding season for laughing gulls, least terns, oystercatchers, and black skimmers. This time of year, waterfowl are nesting on spoil islands, undisturbed beaches, and even rooftops when their preferred habitat is unavailable. The Citrus County shoreline offers many opportunities for close-up waterfowl encounters. June is also nesting time for ospreys, commonly known as sea hawks, fish eagles or fish hawks. Ospreys are large fish-eating raptors with a predominantly grey head sporting a distinct black eye patch. Fish are the main course of an ospreys diet, so it is always found near water: fresh or salt, inland or on the coast, wherever the pickings are good. Ospreys are particularly well-adapted to this diet, with reversible outer toes, sharp spicules on the underside of the toes, closable nostrils to keep out water during dives, and backwards-facing scales on the talons which act as barbs to help hold catches. Look for the big nests in tall dead trees bordering any waterway; you will be surprised how many nests can be found this time of year. It is also nesting season for mockingbirds, but keep in mind to observe these birds from a distance. Mockingbirds are no bird brains and can recognize a face in a crowd. University of Florida biologists are reporting that mockingbirds recognize and remember people whom the birds perceive as threatening their nests. If the white-and-grey songbirds spot unwelcome guests, they screech, dive bomb and even sometimes graze the visitors heads all while ignoring other passers-by or nearby strangers. ReptilesJune is the height of the gopher tortoise breeding season. The gopher tortoiseis a fairly large terrestrial turtle which possesses forefeet well adapted for burrowing and elephantine hind feet. The gopher tortoise is unique in that it is one of the few tortoises to actually make large burrows. Many tortoises hide under vegetation or use very shallow burrows. Gopher tortoises are herbivore scavengers, and their diets consist of more than 300 species of plants. They consume a very wide range of plants, but mainly eat broad-leaved grasses, wiregrass, and terrestrial legumes. The gopher tortoise has an elaborate courtship that begins in the spring. They will nest between April and July. Typically, the nests are dug very close to their burrow openings, where a clutch of 4 to 7 eggs are laid. The gopher tortoise eggs are round and about the size of a ping pong ball. The sex of the offspring is determined by the temperature of the soil where the nest is incubating. If the temperature is above 85 degrees, the tortoise hatchling will be female; Questions about Rockwell picture; advice for silver John SikorskiSIKORSKIS ATTIC Critter happenings in June HomeFront is a weekly real estate section published Sundays in the Citrus County Chronicle.

See ATTIC / Page E5 Joan BradshawFLORIDAFRIENDLY LIVING RIGHT: This work, apparently by Norman Rockwell, is reversed from the way the scene is normally portrayed. Is it a print, or an original drawing? Special to the Chronicle See JUNE / Page E5 lavender-blue ones mixed on the same flower head. One named variety, Elaine, has shorter, slimmer leaves up to 18 inches long. Flowers are a dark purple. While most Agapanthus prefer full sun, Elaine flowers best in light or afternoon shade. Dwarf Peter Pan has 18-inch-long leaves in a clump about as wide. It has starbursts of lavender-blue flowers. Up to 200 individual flowers grow at the apex of each green stem, radiating from a single central point. Flower season locally starts in mid-May and is over in July. Each umbellate globe of flowers lasts three weeks in the garden. Plants in the same bed will not necessarily flower together. One may be fading when its neighbor is opening weeks later. Flowering season lasts six to eight weeks. Let the flower head open for about a week, then cut it as a long-stemmed flower for the vase. Gardeners can cut off spent flower stalks or let seeds mature. For the rest of the growing season, leaf growth produces fat, healthy bulbs, roots and offset bulblets. In frost free Zones 9 to 11, Agapanthus remains evergreen over winter. In Zone 8B, foliage will die to the ground after the first frost. Young plants grow at the base of the parent bulb. These offspring take several years to reach flowering size. Fall is a good time to dig up a mature plant. Shake off the soil, trying not to damage the thick white roots. Gently but firmly pull the bulbs apart and untangle the roots. There will be a snap as the smaller bulbs detach from the parent. Replant immediately as a border or in groups of five to nine. Spread out the roots and cover with humus-rich soil. Flood with water to settle soil around the roots. Do not stamp on the delicate roots. I like to put small bulbs in a 6-inch diameter No. 1 pot. In a year they will be ready to share with friends and neighbors. Attractive foliage develops over the growing season into large clumps about 2 feet tall and as wide in several years. A line of Agapanthus forms a dense row towards the back of a perennial bed.Jane Weber is a Professional Gardener and Consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants.

Texture and form are words used in gardening to suggest plant appearance. Form could be square pruned like a formal Japanese Boxwood shrub,Buxusmicrophylla,or naturally dense and rounded like Schellings Holly, Ilex vomitoria, a variety of native Yaupon. Texture can refer to the shiny leathery tops of a Little gem Magnolia leaf, its velvety brown underside, or to the delicate leaves of a fern planted nearby in the shade. When designing a garden, homeowners should consider form, texture, mature size, shape and color.Agapanthus, African lily, is an easyto-grow perennial useful for its strong, strap-like foliage and large spheres of flowers towering above the leaves in late spring to summer. Agape translates as love in ancient Greek, while anthos means flower. Most local species are A. praecox,with large globes of blue flowers on a single, stout stem up to 36 inches tall. Originally from South Africa, Agapanthus has been cultivated for thousands of years. Some varieties have white flowers. Others have both white and against cleaning too often, since every cleaning episodes result in a microscopic reduction in the silver finish.

Plants also can directly benefit other plants in the garden, either through creating amiable microclimates, adding nutrients to the soil, or providing needed structure. Probably the most recognizable example of this is the three sisters gardening technique used by early Native American gardeners. By growing maize (corn), squash and beans together, each plant was able to benefit from the others, resulting in a healthier whole. Pole beans, as the name suggests, grow best when they have a tall polelike structure to vine on; corn provides this perfectly. At the same time, the beans, being of the legume family, are able to fix atmospheric nitrogen and deposit it in the soil. This helps feed the nitrogen-loving corn plants. But what of the squash? Being long, vining plants with large leaves, the squash plants are able to quickly cover the exposed ground between the corn and beans. The shade under their leaves keeps the ground cool and moist in the heat of summer and deters weeds from growing and taking the nutrients from the lot of them. While planning my garden last year, I decided to try a new location for my peas. As a companion to the rest of the garden, I planted a thick row of peas along the 30-foot length of the garden bed. The early season peas grew quickly, as they tend to do, and provided a perfect low-level wind break as the later spring planting season progressed. Tender seedlings that would have been lost to the gusting winds fared so well that I had no losses to speak of, and all because, over time, I was able to watch the cues that my garden was giving me, find a companion planting that could help to solve that problem, and implement the plan. While I used peas in this instance as a seasonal hedge against the wind, I might have used a more permanent hedge as a barrier to other unwanted garden problems. Perhaps the thorny holly bush to help deter wildlife, or a curved hedgerow uphill from a garden to help redirect the cool air of the early and late seasons as it settles around the garden. I never seem to have enough room in my garden for each seasonsCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, JUNE3, 2012E7 E6SUNDAY, JUNE3, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE LARGEST SELECTION OF FORECLOSURES IN CITRUS COUNTY 000BMFD 311 W.

Or that ancient agriculturists tended to sow a hodgepodge of crops in the same field? Surely youve encountered the phrase, three sisters, which describes a kind of cropping where corn stalks support vining beans and squash or pumpkins shade out the weeds. No matter how you harvest it, companion planting in the garden has the capability to offer larger and more diverse yields with fewer fertility and pest problems. Heres how. Plants form relationships with their environment and the other life forms around them, whether that be other plants, insects, soil microbes or even the gardeners who nurture them. Some of those relationships can weaken the crop (think weedy lambs ears overtaking your onion patch), while others can strengthen it (three sisters, for example). Some would promote companion planting as a means to keep this or that pest away rather than how to make a garden ecosystem healthier, and therefore more productive. The fact of the matter is that if you avoid monocultural blocks in the garden and place certain species in close proximity of others, you will foil all kinds of pesky problems. Take, for instance, the marigold. Although its insect repelling properties are legendary in even a beginning gardeners vocabulary, the fact is often overlooked that it also plays a vital role as an attractor. Hoverflies, whose larvae are voracious eaters of pests like aphids and who as adults play an important role in the garden as pollinators, are attracted to the bright yellow and orange flowers. Nasturtiums, too, are well-regarded for their natural repelling of pests like cucumber beetles, white-fly and, my personal nemesis, the squash bug, but they also are a strongly attractive plant.

Texture and form are words used in gardening to suggest plant appearance. Form could be square pruned like a formal Japanese Boxwood shrub,Buxusmicrophylla,or naturally dense and rounded like Schellings Holly, Ilex vomitoria, a variety of native Yaupon. Texture can refer to the shiny leathery tops of a Little gem Magnolia leaf, its velvety brown underside, or to the delicate leaves of a fern planted nearby in the shade. When designing a garden, homeowners should consider form, texture, mature size, shape and color.Agapanthus, African lily, is an easyto-grow perennial useful for its strong, strap-like foliage and large spheres of flowers towering above the leaves in late spring to summer. Agape translates as love in ancient Greek, while anthos means flower. Most local species are A. praecox,with large globes of blue flowers on a single, stout stem up to 36 inches tall. Originally from South Africa, Agapanthus has been cultivated for thousands of years. Some varieties have white flowers. Others have both white and against cleaning too often, since every cleaning episodes result in a microscopic reduction in the silver finish.

ambitions. For instance, if I want to grow broccoli in the spring, I know its going to take a significant part of my garden. However, I also know that while the full-grown plant may require 2 square feet, its going to take a couple of months before it gets to that size. If I were to plant just those seedlings on their own, there would be a lot of wasted ground left barren around them. By pairing a primary planting like broccoli, kale, brussels sprouts or some other spring-planted, longer-season crop with a secondary springplanted short-season crop like mesclun, baby lettuce greens, radishes or green onions we can maximize the gardening space while helping to keep the grounds moisture level even during the wetter early months and the soil cool as the season progresses. Another benefit is reaped as the longer-season leafy plants grow larger in the early summer sun. While lettuce will bolt as it experiences too much warmth from the longer days, another couple of plantings of tender greens can often be harvested from beneath the shady canopy of the maturing primary plants. Another way of providing partial shade for plants that dont need a full day of sun can be accomplished with taller plants like corn, sunflowers or even vertically grown tomatoes placed throughout the garden in north-south rows. By sowing the taller plants in this orientation, plants on either side of them are offered roughly a half-day of shade. I wish I could say I knew everything there is to know about companion planting, but honestly, I dont see how anyone ever could. Each year brings a new understanding and an opportunity to try a new way of combining different elements of the garden to benefit the plants, attract beneficial insects, create better growing conditions, or even simply maximize the area with which we have to work. More than anything else, companion planting isnt so much a recipe book for which plants to grow together. Companion planting is an ecosystem approach to gardening: Taking note of how the different pieces of the garden puzzle fit together, and then doing what we can to foster the best relationships among those pieces adds another dynamite dimension to growing your own food.

My mom was an avid collector of Norman Rockwell, mostly plates that were for the most part very commercialized via Bradford Exchange. But we stumbled across a charcoal print of what we believe to be looking out to sea. It differs from the prints we find online, as the image is reversed and not 100 percent identical to the original. We have only found one reference to this version online, and are curious about its value, both retail and for insurance. It is on a coarse paper such as the type you would use for charcoal drawing not smooth. It is in pretty good condition; the paper is starting to warp a little due to age and Florida humidity, so I know we need to get it rematted. Anything else you can tell us about it? I have attached a picture of the print and a picture of the more common plate. E., InternetDear E.: I suspect most of our readers are aware of the artist Norman Rockwell. If you have an original charcoal drawing by Rockwell, the dollar value will be significant. I think you have a print, not an original charcoal drawing. To investigate further, I suggest you contact Swann Galleries at www.swanngalleries.com in New York. They specialize in works on paper. Dear John: I am sending you a picture of a glass from a set of 12 that I believe my in-laws got as a wedding gift back in July of 1917. It is a very thin, delicate, pink glass. It also came with dessert glasses, which were short and wide, but only five of those survived. Can you tell me anything about these glasses? Any information will be greatly welcomed. E.M., InternetDear E.M.: I think your pretty pink glassware was made in America. I do not recognize the maker or the pattern. Here is a good Internet resource for American glassware: The company name is Sparkle Plenty Glass. The website is www.spglass.com. Dear John: I enjoy your show every Saturday morning. On March 17, one of your listeners inquired about cleaning silver. I have had very good results from a 3M product, Tarni Shield. It was recommended by a dealer in silver collectibles in Los Angeles. Tarni-Shield gives a very bright luster without scratching. Part of the polishing instructions includes the note to rinse in water and then let stand 2 to 5 minutes. The dealer said to use very hot water when rinsing so that a thin invisible, wax-like layer remains on the silver, thereby prolonging the shine. He said that periodic dusting would further prolong the shine, and cautioned June marks the beginning of summer, the rainy season and hurricane season. This month also offers some of the greatest opportunities for viewing wildlife. There is a wide variety of interesting critter activities to observe throughout June.BirdsJune is the breeding season for laughing gulls, least terns, oystercatchers, and black skimmers. This time of year, waterfowl are nesting on spoil islands, undisturbed beaches, and even rooftops when their preferred habitat is unavailable. The Citrus County shoreline offers many opportunities for close-up waterfowl encounters. June is also nesting time for ospreys, commonly known as sea hawks, fish eagles or fish hawks. Ospreys are large fish-eating raptors with a predominantly grey head sporting a distinct black eye patch. Fish are the main course of an ospreys diet, so it is always found near water: fresh or salt, inland or on the coast, wherever the pickings are good. Ospreys are particularly well-adapted to this diet, with reversible outer toes, sharp spicules on the underside of the toes, closable nostrils to keep out water during dives, and backwards-facing scales on the talons which act as barbs to help hold catches. Look for the big nests in tall dead trees bordering any waterway; you will be surprised how many nests can be found this time of year. It is also nesting season for mockingbirds, but keep in mind to observe these birds from a distance. Mockingbirds are no bird brains and can recognize a face in a crowd. University of Florida biologists are reporting that mockingbirds recognize and remember people whom the birds perceive as threatening their nests. If the white-and-grey songbirds spot unwelcome guests, they screech, dive bomb and even sometimes graze the visitors heads all while ignoring other passers-by or nearby strangers. ReptilesJune is the height of the gopher tortoise breeding season. The gopher tortoiseis a fairly large terrestrial turtle which possesses forefeet well adapted for burrowing and elephantine hind feet. The gopher tortoise is unique in that it is one of the few tortoises to actually make large burrows. Many tortoises hide under vegetation or use very shallow burrows. Gopher tortoises are herbivore scavengers, and their diets consist of more than 300 species of plants. They consume a very wide range of plants, but mainly eat broad-leaved grasses, wiregrass, and terrestrial legumes. The gopher tortoise has an elaborate courtship that begins in the spring. They will nest between April and July. Typically, the nests are dug very close to their burrow openings, where a clutch of 4 to 7 eggs are laid. The gopher tortoise eggs are round and about the size of a ping pong ball. The sex of the offspring is determined by the temperature of the soil where the nest is incubating. If the temperature is above 85 degrees, the tortoise hatchling will be female; Questions about Rockwell picture; advice for silver John SikorskiSIKORSKIS ATTIC Critter happenings in June HomeFront is a weekly real estate section published Sundays in the Citrus County Chronicle.

See ATTIC / Page E5 Joan BradshawFLORIDAFRIENDLY LIVING RIGHT: This work, apparently by Norman Rockwell, is reversed from the way the scene is normally portrayed. Is it a print, or an original drawing? Special to the Chronicle See JUNE / Page E5 lavender-blue ones mixed on the same flower head. One named variety, Elaine, has shorter, slimmer leaves up to 18 inches long. Flowers are a dark purple. While most Agapanthus prefer full sun, Elaine flowers best in light or afternoon shade. Dwarf Peter Pan has 18-inch-long leaves in a clump about as wide. It has starbursts of lavender-blue flowers. Up to 200 individual flowers grow at the apex of each green stem, radiating from a single central point. Flower season locally starts in mid-May and is over in July. Each umbellate globe of flowers lasts three weeks in the garden. Plants in the same bed will not necessarily flower together. One may be fading when its neighbor is opening weeks later. Flowering season lasts six to eight weeks. Let the flower head open for about a week, then cut it as a long-stemmed flower for the vase. Gardeners can cut off spent flower stalks or let seeds mature. For the rest of the growing season, leaf growth produces fat, healthy bulbs, roots and offset bulblets. In frost free Zones 9 to 11, Agapanthus remains evergreen over winter. In Zone 8B, foliage will die to the ground after the first frost. Young plants grow at the base of the parent bulb. These offspring take several years to reach flowering size. Fall is a good time to dig up a mature plant. Shake off the soil, trying not to damage the thick white roots. Gently but firmly pull the bulbs apart and untangle the roots. There will be a snap as the smaller bulbs detach from the parent. Replant immediately as a border or in groups of five to nine. Spread out the roots and cover with humus-rich soil. Flood with water to settle soil around the roots. Do not stamp on the delicate roots. I like to put small bulbs in a 6-inch diameter No. 1 pot. In a year they will be ready to share with friends a
